Detailed Info

Rocket league sells some DLC packs directly, containing car bodies and other items like wheel skins and boost trails. All of these direct purchases are each either $2 or $4. Car bodies have slightly different hitboxes and handling, so while the difference is small, they are for the purposes of this website considered microtransactions that affect gameplay. Check the spreadsheet linked below for raw data.

The game also offers the opportunity to open in-game crates in a very similar fashion to Counter-Strike: Global Offensive. These crates are earned through gameplay, but the keys needed to open them are not. The crates, keys, and the items inside the crates can all be traded freely with other players. Keys are sold in bundles of varying sizes, from $1.50 for a single key to $20 for 20 keys.

The game holds occasional time-limited events, where players can earn items called Decryptors. These function just like keys, except that they cannot be traded with other players.

The most recent update adds the Rocket Pass, a quasi-subscription system similar to Fortnite’s that allows subscribers to unlock more content.
