ARMS Global Testpunch – “Warm-Up” practice mode can be played outside of event times with a trick
The ARMS Global Testpunch demo is mostly nonfunctional outside of active hours. Yet Reddit user NefariousSquid discovered one way that you can continue playing the “Warm-Up” practice mode even when the servers are down.
Assuming you already have save data where you’ve progressed past the tutorial, simply follow these steps:
- On your Nintendo Switch, go to System Settings -> Internet -> Internet Settings -> [your network] -> Change Settings.
- Enable proxy settings, and change the server address to
188.8.131.52(or some other fake address).
- Save, then open the ARMS Global Testpunch.
- Select Party Match, select a character, then go to Warm-Up.
After 2 minutes and 30 seconds, you’ll receive an error message. It’s fine though, since you can just go right back in and continue practicing.
