New Gadget: Sticky Bomb[ | ]

After much testing and community feedback in Experimental, the new Gadget – Sticky Bomb – is graduating into all queues!

The Sticky Bomb attaches to a player when thrown and detonates after a short time. See below for full details!

When thrown, this Gadget attaches to a player and blinks in red for a short time until it detonates. It can be passed to another player by running into them.

Local Tournament Support[ | ]

In addition to the recent update which unlocks stances in local tournament lobbies, we have now added the ability for players to be renamed in local (offline) tournaments! Now when hosting a local tournament you can have custom names visible on streams and recordings instead of only seeing “Player 1”, “Player 2”, etc.

This feature is currently available on PC & Mac, and PlayStation 4 & 5.

To give players a custom name:

  • Go to “Couch Party” in the “Offline Play” screen.
  • Open the “Settings” menu and select the “Lobby” tab.
  • Select either “Tournament 1v1” or “Tournament 2v2” and then select “Confirm”.
  • In the “Manage Party” menu on the top left hand side, select the player you want to change the name of.
  • On the popup screen that appears, select “rename”
  • Type your new display name in the new popup screen, and press “Enter when completed”
  • Enjoy your custom display name for the duration of the offline tournament!
