Psyonix’s blockbuster soccer-with-cars game Rocket League is getting a sweet free add-on next month, and it looks like it’s going to be a blast.

Rocket League Rumble brings a ton of wacky power-ups like the ability to kick an opponent’s car or freeze the ball in mid-air. It’ll be available in Online Playlists, as well as Private and Exhibition matches. If you enjoy playing with mutators, you’re probably going to get a kick out of this update.

Here’s the complete list of power-ups:

  • The Boot (Kicks an opponent’s car)
  • Disruptor (Forces your opponent to drive uncontrollably)
  • Freezer (Freezes the ball in-place)
  • Grappling Hook (Pulls you towards the ball)
  • Haymaker (Punches the ball)
  • Magnetizer (Attracts the ball to your car)
  • Plunger (Grabs the ball via plunger and cord)
  • Power Hitter (Allows you to hit everything harder)
  • Spike (Attach the ball to your car when you bump into it)
  • Swapper (Change positions on the field with your opponent)
  • Tornado (Sweep up the ball and opposing cars into a giant funnel cloud)
