As Rocket League is currently in our Easter Sale at the moment, we thought now would be the perfect time to give the gaming public some of our top tips, so if you are new to the game or just want to brush up on your rocket car skills then, these tips should help you out!
Switch camera views
We suggest switching your camera view in order to get the best understanding of your surroundings. The game gives you a choice of two default camera views, one that follows your car’s view and the other which follows the ball from the perspective of the car (aka the ball cam). To get the best understanding of your surroundings we suggest switch views often to get a better gauge on your surroundings.
Keep calm and rocket on
It’s never a good idea to panic in Rocket League, make sure you try to keep calm at all times. It’s easy to rush full speed to reach the ball, but sometimes it’s best to hang back and watch what everyone else is doing and then plan your attack.
Gain more air in your jumps
Most players don’t realise that holding jump rather than tapping it gives you more air. This little trick can come in dead handy to give you that little bit extra in a sticky situation.
Don’t chase the ball
More often than not, players will end up chasing the ball at some point. Try to avoid doing this, if a teammate already has position think about supporting him or get in a defensive position, it is a team game after all.
Use the air jump
If the ball has been launched high into the air then we suggest that players press jump, wait a beat, and then press jump again. This always gets you higher up quicker than someone who doesn’t use the air jump and you will soon have an advantage over your opponents.
Somersault to success
Driving forward and and double tapping jump will perform a forward somersault, a few of these will get you up to supersonic speed. Do this instead of always burning all your boost, save that for when you really need it.
Keep an eye on your boost
Make sure your boost is always topped up, last thing you want to do is, run out of boost just before you are able to score an amazing goal (This may also result in ridicule by your teammates). So it’s best to keep your boost topped up with the various pick ups that litter the field. Take it from us, it is handy to keep collecting the boost pick-ups as it could result in your opponents running out before they can execute that perfect aerial.
So there you have it, keep these tips in mind next time you hit the Rocket League arena. Or if you are yet to pick up Rocket League you can do so here.
