The mechanical card launcher replaces the draw deck typically used in Uno. Instead of drawing a card, players must tap a button on the launcher. The launcher is equipped with a randomized trigger that ejects cards after an unknown number of button pushes.

The second version of the game dropped the Wild All Hit and the Wild Hit Fire, the card that replaced the Wild Draw Four. The newer version featured a redesigned launcher as well. The differences between the two are largely cosmetic, but the mechanics are essentially the same. The new launcher reportedly has a stronger motor and fires the cards more smoothly than its predecessor.
