One tip from a 2000 hour RL steam player, ROTATION IS KEY. If your m80 is out there attacking, stay close to your goal. It helps prevents counter attacks and counter shots ;)

I'm incredibly experienced on the pcand ps4, and on the joy cons it's almost impossible to play lol. To play this game properly, you NEED a controller. Driving and using the brake at %100 all the time is not ideal, (especially if you want to dribble)and the analog is harder to use, then a proper controller, so it's harder to make sharp turns. If you are thinking about playing the game seriously, then get a pro controller, or an adapter for the Wii u pro controller

#1 tip is to disable cross platform play if you are a semi pro or less. If you keep it on, you will get destroyed by PC smurfing...

I have over 800 hours in this game... These tips are not that great. Go watch a pro for good tips

If you guys want an amazing camera angle, search up the following - Squishy Muffinz camera settings. I use these myself and I'm level 50 on ps4. Trust me, this camera setting is lowkey amazing.
Alden Darbouze (6 months ago)
This man is really advocating not using ball cam? Get used to ball cam and learn when to turn it off, not when you're in goal wtf. Knowing where the ball is is like rocket league 101

Kenny Contreras (7 months ago)
Some of these earlier tips are so bad lol. If you want to get better at the game, watch other videos that aren't Switch-based. Ballcam and freecam should be used interchangeably, boosting is generally better than front-flipping if you've got it, because you maintain control which is important. Watch beginner guides from a few months ago for PC players and console players, you'll get better at the game way faster
Wizards Only (7 months ago)
Here is another tip don't watch nintendo switch tutorials watch Xbox ps4 or pc rocket league tutorials they have a lot more experience with rocket league. But for Zelda and odyssey this is the place

Don't feel bad Alex, I have nearly 700 hours on the game and I'm Lvl. 59, and I still barely use ballcam.
Genie Houdini (4 months ago)
TheConfidentialEnderman yea he's kinda right man. Your aerials and mental game will suffer without proficient use of ball cam and a little own cam.

TheConfidentialEnderman how do u not use ball cam... If u don't u legit suck at this game

Hairy ToxicCow (7 months ago)
I find it funny when he says that in defence don't use "ball cam", I mean really I'm lvl 40 (Expert) and I never did that, and tell me how many proplayers do that? None of them. (Sorry butt hurt I hate it when someone tells tips about a game and that it's not even true...) but the rest of the video in kinda grate tho

Omg, who made the gameplay video? Use ball cam for Christ's sake

something faster than flipping is a wave dash. here is a tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xk-XWaauhdA&t=2s also turn camera shake off

Great tips thank you. Where did you get that Mario sombrero art would like to get one for a gift.
pmag (7 months ago)
So i agree with nearly everything in this video (over 700 hours on PC) the one I don’t agree with is turning ball cam off while in net. That can mess up how you perceive the ball and the direction that it’s coming. The only time you should turn off ball cam is if you are going to start dribbling, if you need to turn it off quickly to position yourself for boost, or when the ball is directly above you making it so you can’t see anything but the ball and the sky. You could also turn it off before taking an aerial shot but you don’t need to. I also personally don’t agree with the keybind changes since I play with default controls perfectly fine but it helps other people (like top tier pros) so I’m not going to say don’t listen to it. Also it’s a fucking dodge... not a somersault. It’s right in the tutorial for God’s sake. Also speaking of that, turn the dodge sensitivity up to .75 or higher so you don’t accidentally backflip so much once you learn about quick aerials. Also turn camera shake off. Camera shake is a huge distraction and you will play better without it.

Why do you have to have 2 Nintendo accounts to play this in split screen??? This is very frustrating, please update so I don't have to make another Nintendo account. Then when online paid service starts I won't have to pay for my own account and my player 2 account that is why I think this issue needs fixed asap! Hope the developers sees this comment, anyone agree with me though?! [Switch Friend Code SW-3242-7039-3720]

i wish I knew it had lootcrate. lame
Brian Preston (8 months ago)
speedm222 still, the WAY they do lootcrate here is trash. $1 for a chance at 1 item, when their old method of DLC was 3-5 bucks for a couple cars, a few decals, and a rim or two. now? it can cost up to $30 for what would be a $4 dlc.
speedm222 (8 months ago)
Brian Preston It's only cosmetic bro, also you could trade your crates to a sucker who's willing to open them for the items you actually want

Another tip is to change the servers you use if you are suffering with lag. Im in the UK and found that it defaulted to EU and US servers. I only use the EU servers now and the ping is soooo much better.
Yuzu Aihara (8 months ago)
I've been in love with this game! When I checked the eshop 3 days ago, I saw Rocket League and flipped my poop. The next day, I went to eb games and bought a prepaid card. The first few games were amazing! And even now it still amazes me that the game that I've been wanting to play since it first came out is in the switch. Thank you Nintendo and Panic Button. The gameplay shown here made me go insane again! Your friend that was in the gameplay is amazing. The part where he/she hops up, then points the car up, then boosts, giving them more flight time vertically and can reach higher. That's amazing, I'll be using that tactic

Mihai Stoica (7 months ago)
I never saw it as "soccer with cars" and have no interest in either of those things. It's the mechanics and physics of it, coupled with the fact that you're playing with and against other people. Every game, you encounter these weird and unexpected moments that make you laugh your ass off, and you're having fun weather you win or lose, weather you're good or bad. Despite all the randomness it very much promotes and rewards skill. After playing hundreds of hours it still blows my mind what some of the pros can do. I suggest you watch a couple pro games and if that doesn't get you going, than it's not for you.

People REALLY need to see this. As a player who's clocked 300 hours in the Steam version, playing with a fresh account on the Switch is pretty frustrating. They just keep chasing the ball. But of course, everybody else should see this as well, since people on Steam are also quite rubbish sometimes.

Happy Caius (8 months ago)
Based on my limited knowledge of playing rocket league at a friend's house. My best advice is to play the Rumble mode. Truly the only competitive mode in the whole game. Honestly though that is a really fun mode.
Happy Caius (8 months ago)
Personally I think it's more like Mario Kart's battle mode or something.
TheAgeOfDragons (8 months ago)
it's fun not the only competitve mode cause it mostly comes down to luck

Go to the Rocket League page on the eShop, then scroll down and you'll see 'DLC' and 'In-Game Items'. The unlock keys for boxes are under 'In-Game Items'.

Your skill is serverly limited by the fact that the switch doesn't have analogue triggers which is something that can vastly help you
GameCrawler (7 months ago)
That's a good point but it hasn't affected me really.
Peter Joll (8 months ago)
Analogue triggers allow you to control the degree of acceleration, whereas digital input only offers you two options, you're either accelerating or you're not.
EZIC (8 months ago)
Neither does keyboard, but still there are few pros that use keyboard and do really well with it. Also im high diamond with keyboard.
Jonny 3902 (8 months ago)
Mishpãré Urśhjìlk in what way?
Edgar Castellanos (8 months ago)
Thx for the tips homie!
speedm222 (8 months ago)
Extra trading tip by me: if you are not into really opening loot boxes but you really want some of the items in them (like the Jager car, Tachyon boost and Voltaic wheels), just stack up on free random drop items (loot boxes, rares, very rares, etc.), go to a trading site (my personal fav is Rocket League Garage, who also just added Switch offers), and make an offer listing your current items you want to trade and for what items. From personal experience I got most import cars by stacking up on accelerator boxes on PC. There will ALWAYS be someone who wants what you have and don't want (except if it's painted in Burnt Sienna, f*** that color). But don't count on asking for items like Pixel Fire and Takumi RX-T until Psyonix rereleases the Championship Crate series.
speedm222 (8 months ago)
Just compete and complete any online match for a chance to get and rarer than common item. There's an easy way to get all common items: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wqzKfW7xL0 (In an hour you will have all common items using this method.) (Note: uncommon or rarer items are unlocked ONLY AFTER FINISHING ONLINE MATCHES, AND AT RANDOM.)
Jonny 3902 (8 months ago)
Sorry, I’m new to this if you can’t tell
Jonny 3902 (8 months ago)
speedm222 and how do I go about earning them?
speedm222 (8 months ago)
Psyonix said on reddit that they consider to bring back the CC series just for the sake of Switch players not being left without the items within them.
EZIC (8 months ago)
speedm222 the championship crate series was the first series of te crates that got removed while ago. So if you want items from those crates you should get them before they become more rare.

I'm horrible at this game lol
Dennis Deveaux (8 months ago)
Don't feel bad - I just did my first online match before doing all the tutorials, and I swear my team mates were laughing at the newbie running after the ball all the time. I even nearly scored on my own goal but luckily a teammate caught it in time. Staying offline until I at least do all the training and some single player matches
distrustful monkey (8 months ago)
Me too. Love it though - I'm just trying not to annoy to many people on line with my rubbishness while I learn! It took me 2 straight hours of offline matches against bots to start reliably hitting the ball towards the correct goal....
