Hedlok Scramble is a Versus mode for two to four fighters. It is similar to an ordinary Fight in that the objective is to be the last one standing; however, at the beginning of the match, Hedlok's mask will be spawned in an orb at the center of the map.


After absorbing three punches, the orb at the center of the stage will break, allowing fighters to pick up Hedlok's mask by moving on top of it or hitting it with a punch, which drags the mask back towards them. The orb will also break on its own if left untouched for too long. While wearing Hedlok's mask, the fighter will have all of Hedlok's abilities at their disposal (i.e. six arms and its unique grab attack and Rush). However, the mask will be removed once after 12 seconds have passed (a timer unique to this mode is present on the back of Hedlok's mask so the fighter wearing it can see, which has a dial of twelve wedges counting down counterclockwise) or if the fighter wearing Hedlok's mask is knocked down, thus allowing another fighter to claim it. Notably, Hedlok's own Rush attack can knock down the user if the final explosion is too close. If the mask is knocked off before the timer has ended, the timer will be reset to full once the next person dons it. If the mask disappears, it will return in the orb a short amount of time afterwards. Thus, the fighter wearing the mask uses its powers to devastate their foes while their enemies try to attack the fighter wearing the mask so they can claim it for themselves, creating a mad scramble for control of Hedlok's mask.

Certain character specific abilities will be restricted when equipped with Hedlok:

  • Barq is not present when Hedlok attaches to Byte.
  • When Hedlok is attached to Misango, the guardian spirit disappears.
    • This means he cannot activate his masks and it won't protect him during his guard.
  • When Hedlok is attached to Dr. Coyle, she cannot activate her additional ARM.
