BMX Bikes

There was a large amount of changes done to the BMX Bikes for Patch 1. They will spin out of control less when riding normally, and we added in additional features to allow players to perform backflip as well as additional air controls. This now means players will also get knocked off the bike if they land on their head! We’re still tuning and tweaking the BMX, and we will continue to do so until we are happy with it!
BMX bikes should spin out of control less frequently.

  • If you mess up on the BMX and land on your face, you’ll get knocked off of the bike now.
