Gameplay overall remains the same as it was in ARMS, players control their ARMS character and battle in one-on-one matches where they're able to move about in strafing motions as well as forwards and backwards towards their opponent while throwing out punches of various forms from oversized punching gloves which can come in many shapes depending on the character being used.
The player's main goal is to knock out the opponent by depleting them of all their health, in addition by pulling off successful combo attacks the player can wrack up power towards a Special Attack which can deal heavy damage against the opponent. Players are able to attack in a variety of ways by using the Joysticks to manipulate the direction and curvature of their punches causing delays, in addition players are able to block and dodge incoming opponent attacks as well as deal counter-attacks shortly after to deal a greater amount of damage.
There are four modes in ARMS: Grand Tournament; Story Mode, Single-Player Tournament, Offline Multiplayer & Online Multiplayer. The first mode has the player go up against a series of opponents leading up to a final battle with one of the game's "Boss" Characters with some variation of Headlock attached to them, in between these battles the player will learn a bit about each character they're about to battle as well as some of the in-universe events going on in the world of ARMS. In the other three modes the player is able to battle against the AI and other players in quick one on one matches. Offline matches use split-screen for two players and will record which player has the most wins. On Online Multiplayer the player will have a dedicated tracking record which will inform them of their total number of wins, draws and losses as well as what their favoured character is based on usage as well as how often they win or lose against other characters.

|Ribbon Ring||A large concert hall where Ribbon Girl usually performs her songs, parts of the stage raise up making it a bit tricky to navitgate and can allow fighters to have a territorial advantage if they're observant. The area always has a crowd gather when there's a fight but if Ribbon Girl's one of the fighters then the crowd will get pretty wild and spotlights from above will shine down on both fighters.|
|Ninja College||A battle of high ground, the Ninja College Entrance has been home for several ARMS fights in recent years, over time it's been decked out with various bits of equipment to test the agility and perception of ARMS fighters to avoid obstacles while fighting.|

|Buster Beach||With an elevated section in the middle, this guarded beach arena can prove for some hectic battles as the high and low tide can change its shape on a time, during low tide the middle-section, a large wooden octagonal ring sinks down meaning anyone stuck in it becomes trapped, however during high tide this section rises above the rubbery solid arenas which become flooded forcing the fighters to contest for on the small arena.|
|Snake Park||A circular arena with lots of bumpers and curves about it, navigating this stage can be tricky for the inexperienced especially since parts of it can raise and lower randomly changing the shape within the ring. Mobility is everything in this arena so use the terrain to your advantage and outmaneuver your opponent to get in quick hits and dodge theirs.|
|DNA Lab||Rebuilt after the investigation, the DNA Lab contains six giant tubes that cross over the top of the arena, passing fuel of various forms through them at high speed. Fighters can climb atop these tubes and move about them to get the drop on their opponents.

|Bubblegum's home stage is a concert for popular punk band Alchemy Valentine. This arena is very dark, with only colourful spotlights illuminating the arena.

Alternatively, get under the light and wait for them to punch at you, giving away their location.|

|This popular buffet owned by Mr. Black & Mr. Blue matches they're gimmick pretty well: both sides of the stage are different from each other.

You can also use tables on both sides as platforms.|

The Type will designate how the ARM operates whilst the Attribute will dictate an effect that can be caused by said Attribute. Weapons also have weight which impacts their firing speed and damage when hit, in addition it can impact the degree to which blocking can effect said ARMS.
These arms move in a wide arc that is easy to adjust, they're the most flexible arms for trajectory control.
The most basic type of Weapons, they can easily have their trajectory adjusted although do normally travel in a straight line, they're direct and a middleground for most stats.
Hard hitting ARMS that slam downwards after they run out of speed, they're rather limited in their mobility but are pretty heavy hitters.
Very similar to Glove ARMS these weapons are bigger and deal more damage however this comes at the cost of being slower and often leaving the user vulnerable to counters.
ARMS that fire off multiple projectiles at once giving them a larger hit scope although are a bit unpredictable as a result, in addition they also have low damage due to the smaller force being applied.
For ARMS that are truly hard to get a read on Whip ARMS can move unusually making them difficult to counter but also somewhat difficult to use for inexperienced players.
ARMS that fire off homing projectiles, they're useful for when the player needs to focus on dodging however are a big slower and deal less damage than other ARMS.
These ARMS blast out beams of energy which are tricky to avoid although can be jumped and ducked past, they require some charging to fire off long shots.
ARMS that are very useful defensively, Shield ARMS can protect their user from multiple attacks although have little in the way of being used offensively.
Nunchuck ARMS make themselves more dangerous due to their increased range thanks to the spinning weapon however are limited in mobility as a result making them more difficult to turn.
These ARMS move extremely quickly and are hard to control whilst moving however have a small hitbox as a result, when slowed down they become easier to control and increase their hitbox drastically but also lose some of the damage they inflict.
These weapons act differently to any of the previous types.
