Knockout is game mode in Dota Underlords. It's a fast-paced version of the Standard mode. In Knockout, players combine heroes more easily, gain more base gold, level up faster, get items more frequently and pick an Underlord earlier.

Heroes[edit | edit source]

Initial[edit | edit source]

At the start of the game, players are offered three random teams of five heroes with an option to reroll once. The starting team completes at least one level of at least two alliances.

Starting heroes are worth 0 gold (identified by the No gold.png icon) and when combined their selling prices are adjusted accordingly.

Combining[edit | edit source]

Two One star icon.png heroes combine into a Two star icon.png hero and two Two star icon.png heroes combine into a Three star icon.png hero, requiring only four One star icon.png heroes to create a Three star icon.png hero.

One star icon.png + One star icon.png = Two star icon.png
Two star icon.png + One star icon.png + One star icon.png = Three star icon.png

Underlords[edit | edit source]

Players pick an underlord at the end of the first round. Underlords level up every two rounds.

Player[edit | edit source]

Level[edit | edit source]

Players start at level 5 with 1 XP and gain 1 XP every round. Leveling up requires 2 XP and cannot be purchased, so players automatically level up every two rounds.

Health[edit | edit source]

Players start at 4 health and unlike in Standard matches where players take damage based on the opponent's surviving units, in Knockout players always lose 1 health every time they lose a round, regardless of how many units survived.
