Jetball pits you and your 4 team mates against another team to fight for the control of the game ball. Coordinated team play is required so choose your battleframes wisely and utilize every ability to either carry or throw the ball through the opponent’s goal. Change your team’s battleframe composition during the breaks in order to adapt your strategy.

The rules of Jetball: In Jetball 2 teams consisting of 5 team members fight for the control of a ball which has to either be carried or thrown through the opponent’s goal. While you carry the ball you are not able to shoot or use your abilities. Carrying the ball through the goal scores 3 points while throwing it through the goal rewards your with 1 point. The team with the highest score wins the match. A match is segmented in three thirds and battleframes can only be changed before each third.
