  • Camera Transition Speed option has been added to the Camera menu
  • Increasing this value makes your camera blend between Ball Cam and Player Cam more quickly

  • When enabled, this option will prevent other players nameplates from being hidden even at long distances
  • All cars are now using one of the standardized presets for handling and hitbox introduced in the Anniversary Update

Audio
