Celebrating its 2nd Anniversary this July, Rocket League is a high-powered hybrid of arcade soccer and driving with rewarding physics-based gameplay. The vehicular mayhem combined with the easy-to-understand controls and fluid, physics-driven competition make this game one of the most addicting games to play in recent memory.
Boasting a community of more than 32 million players, Rocket League has gained quite the following. At Rocket League’s launch, developer Psyonix announced that there would be various Easter eggs in the game and ever since gamers like you and I have been madly searching for them.
It seems as if Psyonix is constantly thinking of new sneaky ways to surprise Rocket League fans. In the Revenge of the Battle-Cars DLC pack, Psyonix introduced two new vehicles to the game, Zippy and Scarab.
If you take a closer look at the Zippy, you’ll notice that there is a face embossed onto both of the rear lights. That exact face also happens to be Mark Lozano’s, Assistant QA Manager at Psyonix, profile picture on Twitter.
There is a super easy way that will save you a lot of time unlocking cars and items. The simplest way is to go exhibition mode, play a 1v1 with no bots, unlimited time, and a one goal max score. All you have to do is score once to win, its really easy.
You’ll now notice that every time you play a match you will unlock something such as the green flamethrower. The best part is, you can keep replaying the match over and over
If you have ever played a Twisted Metal game, you will be familiar with Sweet Tooth. If you haven’t, Sweet Tooth is one of the main characters of the vehicular combat game Twisted Metal on the PlayStation consoles.
It only seems fitting that the homicidal clown can be unlocked as a playable car in Rocket League. Just how he was unlocked is a mystery, but through many hours of play time the secret was stumbled upon and actually turned out to be a lot more straightforward than most had imagined it would be.
The Ice Cream truck is taller than many of the other vehicles in the game and is very good at shoving the ball around rather than kicking it. Its large size also makes him adept at making saves.
To unlock the demonic Ice Cream truck, you have to win at least one game with each of the following cars below. The game mode doesn’t matter, if you use faster way to unlock cars and items as I talked about earlier, you’ll unlock Sweet Tooth in no time.
If you get at least one win with each of these cars, Sweet Tooth will unlock for you and become a playable option in your selection menu. If you don’t have access to all of the cars listed below, you will need to continue playing the game as they only way they become unlocked is randomly at the end of each match.
If you played Rocket League’s predecessor, Super Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars, Rocket League developer Psyonix has hidden an Easter egg in the game that you’re going to love. While Rocket League is starting up, you’ll see a screen with the Psyonix logo.
Enter the Konami code (PS4) Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, X, O. When you get to the title screen, press the Options button on your PlayStation 4 controller and voila.
If done correctly, you will see the start screen change to Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars and hear the game’s original music. Additionally, you will also get the Moai antenna for your battle car.
While these are only a few of Easter eggs in Rocket League, I’m sure Psyonix will have many more for us to uncover in the near future.
