Rocket League Beginners - Tips and Tricks

  • It exists at the intersection of football, combat sports and rocket science, which is probably why beginners find it a little daunting to get the hang of.

    That said, even the professional players still dedicate hundreds of hours every month in a bid to self-improve, so you shouldn’t think of yourself as a lost cause.

    Anyway, if you’re a beginner looking to hone your skills and pick up a few tips then look no further – here we cover the core skills, tips and tricks to get you off your feet.

    Training

    Training is important to do. Even pros still do training after putting thousands of hours into the game. When you’re starting out, the basic training modules that are provided are all worth practicing until you get more comfortable with them. I recommend starting out every day by doing some of the training before you jump into games. Also, it isn't a bad idea to do a couple after you’re done with your games for a kind of post-game cooldown. You’ll notice that, after doing them time and time again, you will get much better and they will become easier and easier.

    The custom training is amazing as well and the community has put together a lot of different packs for almost every situation you can imagine in the game. Through the game interface, it can sometimes be difficult to find the exact type of training you want but, thankfully, Wayprotein put together a Google Spreadsheet that lists over 100, breaks them down by skill level, and tells you exactly what is in them. A lot of them come with YouTube videos about the training packs as well.

    Demolitions

    No one likes to be demoed. People will complain, but do it anyway. Demolitions are part of the game and they happen even at the highest level of pro play. It is one of the best ways to disrupt your opponents’ defense and, even if you don’t get a demo and just bump them, it will still throw them off. Be careful not to overdo it though, because chasing demos can easily put you out of position for getting back on defense. If I’m in the corner, I typically try to center the ball then cross the net and go for a bump/demo before trying to take the other corner boost and rotating back for defense. I will give you a warning. People will be mad if you demo, but don’t let it discourage you. It’s part of the game and you should use everything you have at your disposal to get an advantage.

    Boost Management

    Managing your boost throughout the game is very important. You want to become very familiar with where all the small boost pads are that give you 12% boost. You can quickly get up to a very useable amount just by driving in the right area. Plus, going for the large 100% boosts in the corner or middle can sometimes put you out of position compared to just grabbing a few small ones and having less boost but being in the right spot at the right time for a pass or clear. At lower levels, it seems like everyone needs to go for the big boosts and I would recommend breaking that habit as soon as possible and learn how to still be effective with low boost and picking up the smaller boosts that are available.

    I’ve seen many goals be scored because the defender goes out of their way to grab the corner boost leaving a wide open net and an easy shot. Their typical response is they needed boost. However, if they would have just waited, even with no boost, they would have made the person shooting the ball have to actually aim instead of getting a free open net. Also, with no boost you can still jump and flip, so you can still get in the way and get a save without any boost. Just be mindful not to chase boost to put you out of position.

    Defense is Key

    If you have ever seen or played sports, you would have probably heard the term “Attack is the best defense.” Well, this is absolutely true when it comes to a game like Rocket League. If you plan on winning game after game, it is essential that you practice playing as a defender or more importantly, as a goalie.
