New Game Mode: Siege
Defend Your Homebase From Enemies
Siege is a 3v3 game mode. Each team has a homebase that they must protect from the opposition. The first team to destroy the enemy's homebase wins! This game mode comes with a new in-game environment, and 3 new maps!
Your Homebase Can Protect Itself
Each homebase also comes equipped with a cannon that can defend itself! You and your team must be extra crafty when assaulting the enemy base since a head-on charge may be ineffective!
Summon Extra Help From Robots
Each team can also collect "Bolts" that appear in the middle of the map. When the team has collected enough Bolts, they will be able to construct a Robo to assist them in the game! Station your frontlines close to the middle to collect lots of Bolts!
The Siege game mode may take longer to finish due to the nature of the game. Due to this, double rewards such as XP, and trophies are given after each match!
New Brawler: Carl
Pickaxe Wielding Brawler
Carl is a Brawler that wields a pickaxe as his weapon of choice. He is a super rare brawler that thrives in close-combat situations!

- Carl has only one ammo slot. This is instantly recharged after his pickaxe returns from a strike.
- The Pickaxe will return to Carl as soon as it reaches the max distance or after hitting a wall.
- The Pickaxe can pierce through enemies.
Super Attack: Tailspin
Carl's Super Attack will cause him to start spinning around in 360 degrees. Enemies caught in this attack will get damaged
Star Power: Power Throw
Carl's Pickaxe flight speed is increased, allowing it to travel and return faster.
