7.4 "Mega Content Patch" update is here!

7.4 was just made available to all players. It has a ton of new content, improvements, and fixes.

New Levels



This is Fort. It's a throwback to the classic Mario Kart 64 multiplayer level Block Fort, remade and optimized for Disco Dodgeball. The one big difference is there's a route onto the forts from near the middle, and of course the addition of glowy LED lights. It adds a lot of verticality to the combat and confers a great advantage to those able to maintain the high ground. It's particularly good for objective-based modes like Capture The Cube.



This is Aquarium, and is a level created by the player SerialHugger (thanks!!). It involves a single walkway connecting the two spawns, some curved ramps leading to a lower fish observation area and some higher side walkways as well. It's very open and rewards those with good long range timing & accuracy.

New Modes

Elimination Hoops

A hybrid of two classic modes. To win a round, either score a single hoop or eliminate the entire enemy team. The first team or FFA player to the target number of round victories will win the match. It's an intense mode that requires the right balance of caution and aggressiveness, and players will need to use their intuition to know when is the right time to go for the goal.

Bonus Ball

This is Deathmatch with a Super Ball twist. Most KOs count for one point, but KOs with the golden ball are worth 5. Additionally, players can toss the Super Ball through the hoop for a bonus 5 points.

Score Hunter

Similar to Headhunter, this is an Elimination variant where the winner is determined by reaching a particular Score. Rounds will continue until the score target is reached. It forces players to abandon their cautious Elimination strategy and go all-out. But of course, acting too bold can easily get you eliminated as well.

New Features

  • You can now choose the team setting 'Random', which will shuffle between 2 Team and FFA modes.
  • You can now choose the mode setting 'Random + Expert', which will select a random mode including the more complex Expert modes. A good way to add some variety to your rooms if you've been playing for a while and are comfortable with advanced rule sets.

New Custom Mode rule options

  • Allow Time Limit Options (makes default time limit options appear in match settings)
  • Score Limit Option (displays specified score limit option in match settings)
  • Round Victory Limit Option (same, with round victories)
  • Time Limit Option (same, with time limits)
  • DefaultRoundVictoryLimit2P...12P (specifies default round victory limit based on number of players if mode is rotated to via Random mode settings)
  • UseCumulativeScore (makes match victory dependent on sum of round scores, useful when making elimination hybrid modes like Headhunter


Adjustments / Improvements / Fixes
  • Attrition and Headhunter are now part of the Classic modes, so they'll pop up during default random mode rotation
  • Grand Prix removed from Classic modes, is now part of Expert modes
  • Headhunter is now FFA only
  • Nerfed homing ball strength
  • Homing on friendly target is much stronger
  • Increased aim proximity requirement for selecting friendy player as homing target
  • Pooled some 3D score text objects and Kill Log items to prevent frame hiccups
  • Added new cylinder mesh to Capture Point to increase visibility (especially when particles are turned off in video settings)
  • Removed lock-on that prevents homing target from changing after reaching certain charge threshold
  • Checkpoints new cylinder mesh, and do a better job of fading in and out
  • Removed extraneous ‘First to 1’ header text in Hunter v Hunted and Hoop Defense modes
  • Fixed random Elimination FFA matches not using the correct round victory limit (3)
  • Fixed Kart Race summing all participants’ scores instead of using leader score
  • Match Settings will load default score limit when changing game mode even if that new mode has a score limit option that matches the currently loaded limit (prevening things like inadvertently setting a Hoops match to 100 if switching from a Super Ball match with limit 100)
  • Fixed switching teams making you ineligible to vote on match settings
  • Bots can prioritize the Super Ball if a KO with it is worth more points
  • Fixed admin Kick function kicking all players in room
  • Team / FFA rule is incorporated into main score subtitle (e.g. “Team Deathmatch”)
  • Headhunter has match score limit (via useCumulativeScore), not a set number of rounds
  • Added hard limit of 18 for maxTeamPlayers custom rule
  • Announcer Says ‘round won’ when you complete an arcade level
  • Fixed bot lighting in Chasm
  • Fixed jetpack particles on Bots not synching to clients
  • Fixed error in sometimes initializing perk progress items before stats were downloaded, resulting in extraneous progress notifications
  • Fixed VO clips sometimes overlapping
  • Better prioritization of VO clips - multiKill > rare trick shots > rampage > on Fire > extinguish > 4+ streak > random taunt > common trick shots > 2+ streak
  • Easy Bots speed restriction is now overridden by Behavior Zones, allowing them to jump across gaps
  • Fixed inventory display counts not updating when returning to inventory after crafting
  • Fixed hyphens being disallowed in player names

Special thanks to all the players who've been participating in the forums and provided the feedback necessary to catch & fix all these issues.

Enjoy the new modes & maps! As always, feedback is welcome on the forums.

I'm also very close to releasing version 7.4 which is a huge content patch including many new game modes & two new levels. Will post another announcement when that's ready!

I should've reviewed this game earlier this summer, but I just never got around to it.
Double R Triple D as my friend and I call it, is a fun dodgeball game, where you play different modes and throw dodgeballs in a disco arena. Every game is similar where you throw balls at people, and you can move anywhere on the field. Some examples of the modes: Elimination, where 2 teams or free for all knock out everyone until you're the only one left. Hoops is where there's a golden ball that you must shoot through a hoop of the opposite team's color. There are more games than just those.

This game might look a little too bright and colorful, in a way that it might hurt your eyes. It hurts mine, but you can turn everything off, or keep the things you do like, which is good.

I recommend this game, but mostly if you play with friends. It's not as fun playing alone or online. 9/10

So my friend and I were debating on whether or not to buy this game. I mean, yeah it's only $8 but we were a little strapped at the time. It looked fun, though, which is why we were hesitant.
My friend decided to bite the bullet--he is the one with the better job, after all. I had to go handle my dog, so I was gone for the moment he downloaded it, but I saw the result. It was like nothing I'd ever seen before in my life.
He used to be a fairly heavyset guy with pimples all over his face and an awkward demeanor; not unlike myself, though more so I suppose. The man I walked into that day was different. I saw a 6'3'' bronzed warrior with perfect facial hair and a gleam in his eye that could make any lady drop at his feet. His phone immediately started going wild with notifications about the millions being depositied into his brand-new Cayman Island account. At that moment, I knew what I had to do.
I powered up my crappy laptop, barely even meeting the specs, and told Steam to install this game.
At once I could feel my crotch bulging as I grew three whole feet in as many seconds. The scruffy excuse I had for a beard was replaced with a layer of hair so glorious Zeus himself was jealous as I also grew six inches taller. I wasn't a large man before, but any semblance of being out of shape melted away from my frame like butter in an oven and my muscles gained glory I'd only dreamed of before. Even my dog, who'd only been a pug before, now stood proudly by my side as a German Shepard-Husky mix while a beautiful woman appeared in my arms, who is now my wife. Behind my friend, I saw the ghost of Genghis Khan nod in approval.
We played for a little afterward for giggles. That was fun too.

To begin with, this game is pretty great. It has great music, the annoucer is pretty funny and the gameplay itself is fun. Espicially when all you do is make buckets. Unofurtately you have angry kids like adam (cancerum) who are just so terrible and cant evnen make a shot. Furthermore he begins to complain saying "omg why you target me and always go for me" it's becuase you have the ball and or are going for it dumbass. To bad this kid is too delusional to relize this and blames the game and throws hit headset becuase he is so trash. This is even proven becuase when I headshot him the announcer said "taking out the trash". All in all this great is pretty great. I don't recommend picking this game up at full price due to the fact that its $11.00 for essentially a pretty repetative and linear game but if you can get it on a sale or on ♥♥♥ for under $5.00 its defintinly a worthy pickup.

I honestly played this game only high. Its probably the best experience to run around the arena and sometimes throw balls at bots because the multiplayer is dead sometimes.

This game is very cool and pretty good, but I think would have a system to invite your friends on your own room and play together.

In the game you can play solo, with bots and with friends.

I really recommend buy this game!
