The game for 2022 was Rapid React. During the 2 minute 30 second game, in RAPID REACT presented by The Boeing Company, two competing alliances are invited to process cargo for transportation. Each alliance is assigned a cargo color (red or blue, based on alliance affiliation) to process by retrieving their assigned cargo, a ball the size of a volleyball, and scoring it in the high or low goals, 8.5 feet and 4.5 feet high respectively. Human players assist the cargo retrieval and scoring efforts from within their terminals. In the final moments of each match, alliance robots race to engage with their hangar to prepare for transport by having the robots climb.
