Freezer is a power-up that can freeze the ball in a specific location. On the other hand, Grappling Hook is just like what its name suggests, so it can be used to manipulate the ball to the advantage of the player.
Additionally, Haymaker is used to punch the ball, while Magnetizer and Plunger are used to attract or grab the ball. As for the Power Hitter power-up, players can use this when they intend to hit something really hard.
Finally, Spike ensures that the ball will attach to the vehicle once it makes contact, Swapper allows players to switch positions and Tornado produces a tall tornado that will sweep the ball up and away from the opponents.
