Rocket League guide

Tips, tricks, strategies — everything you need to know to dominate the pitch

Rocket League is a shining example of elegance in game development. It's essentially soccer (football for everyone outside of the U.S.), and it only takes a quick glance at the gameplay to realize that. You can hand someone the controller, and it instantly clicks: Use the cars to put the ball in the goal. It's so simple!

But you can learn new techniques after 10 hours of playing. The same can be said after 20 hours. Even after 100 hours, players can still learn new skills, and eventually dunk a wall aerial into the upper 90.

Don't get ahead of yourself, though. It takes a lot of wins, losses, blown leads and comebacks to get into the higher level of play. We've designed this this guide to help you get there. And if you just picked up the newly released retail Rocket League Collector's Edition, here's everything you need to know to dominate the pitch.

Under all this strategy and technique, Rocket League is all about finding fun within competition. There's no feeling quite like shocking the rest of the players on the pitch when you crush a lightning pass with an aerial barrel roll. So hit the pitch, practice, make some friends and surprise yourself with what you can do in Rocket League.
