Progression of corruption of Scratch

  • As of December 18th, 2019, if you use the enlightened Scratch edit style, the skin will become "corrupted." To fully "corrupt" Scratch, you must get level 350, although you do not start seeing changes until level 100.
  • Scratch becomes "corrupted" because in the "Trick shot" loading screen we see 8-Ball fighting Scratch. It is theorized that 8-Ball won and implemented a virus into Scratch, causing him to be corrupted.
  • In Chapter 2: Season 2, this was made a separate style, allowing players to use a non-corrupted Scratch along with the corrupted version.
