Rocket League goes free-to-play today. This is likely to bring in the largest number of new players since the game originally launched five years ago. That means that you, my dear reader, might be on the lookout for some Rocket League tips and tricks to help you get started. Well, I’ve got good news for you. You see, the reason that this article is called “Rocket League Tips And Tricks” is because that’s exactly what it contains. So, strap yourself in and get ready for some knowledge.

Adjust Your Camera Settings

The camera settings are something that quite a few don’t tend to change all too often, if at all. The settings that you’re provided with in Rocket League are quite in-depth, with you having the ability to really change your overall field of view and perspective while playing; a key aspect of many parts of the game.

Making the right adjustments to your camera settings can help you generally judge the flight of the ball, see where your teammates are, and generally make everything more comfortable.

Learn to rotate

When you're first starting out, positioning is the most important thing to pay attention to. It may seem like everyone is charging after the ball flat-out all the time -- it feels like pure chaos for a time. (To be fair, sometimes it is.)

But once you play the game for a while, you may begin to notice a pattern, aptly called "rotating."

When you and your teammates are properly rotating -- whether playing 2v2, 3v3 or 4v4 -- the goal should never be left unattended. When one or two players push up for offense, one should remain back on defense. This gets more tricky when you're playing 2v2, but you must adapt the same principle to make sure someone is always keeping an eye on your goal.

Don't underestimate the handbrake

The handbrake is a tool I use as much as boost and jumping. It allows you to drift and whip your car around quickly to get into position, and it's helped me score a lot of unexpected goals. Get very familiar with it and use it to your advantage.

Avoid Chasing The Ball

One issue a lot of new players face is that they focus on simply hitting the ball at all times, at all costs. It’s really important to avoid doing this, as it’s a team game after all.

With Rocket League, it’s all about choosing your moments. If your teammate is further forward or is in a much better position to hit the ball, let them go for it, and focus on what comes next. Go and pick up some boost, position yourself for a save or a counter attack, and then you can go forward.

Pass over shoot

Building on the ball chasing point, you'll sometimes find yourself in a situation where you have a pretty clear shot at goal. The urge to "break their axles" with a sick goal will be strong. If the other team is back and defending, resist the urge to take a shot. They'll be ready and waiting for almost anything you can throw at them.

Instead, take the ball wide, to one wall or the other, and get creative there with a pass to one of your teammates. The chances of a weird bounce, passing the ball to where a defender can't get to it or doing something unexpected are much higher than bumbling an accidental goal in over a few defenders.

Find a teammate

Whether you queue for ranked or casual matches, one of the best things you can do is find someone to play with. Not only will this lower the odds of one of you rage quitting when things get tough, you will learn to anticipate each other's moves much better than some random teammate.

This alone will increase your odds of winning.

When queueing without a teammate, you risk getting paired with teammates who are still upset from their last loss, in a bad mood or who don't know how to rotate properly. And it doesn't just have to be one of those things. Everyone's play style is different, and being able to read your own teammate and expect their next move will go a long way toward your own improvement.

Conserve precious boost

Boost is a precious resource in Rocket League. Even though it regenerates quickly, you will often find yourself without any, struggling to get back and defend your goal.

Instead of using boost all the time, you can "lunge forward" by holding the joystick forward and double-pressing the jump button. If you do this a few times, you can reach the same top speed as you can with boost (you just can't sustain that speed as well or maneuver as quickly or easily).
