A player with a full blast meter, when being hit by a rocket, will ricochet and fly out of the map, resulting in death. The player character is very mobile and has the ability to dodge other rockets, triple jump, and rocket jumping.

The game is released with 5 modes at launch: Knockout and Megarocket are variants to standard team deathmatch and Capture the Flag mode.

In Treasure Hunt, a treasure chest will spawn in the middle of the map and once a player picks up the chest, their teammates need to defend them so that the chest would not be stolen by other players. The game also features a cooperative multiplayer mode named Rocketbot Attack in which three players fend off waves of bots controlled by artificial intelligence.
