How to get golden shot in Rocket League Sideswipe

Golden shots are as effective as they sound… here’s how to pull them off in Rocket League Sideswipe!
Rocket League’s advanced mechanics are intact when it comes to transitioning the car football video game from 3D to 2D with Sideswipe’s release.

That doesn’t mean, however, that they are simple to pull off even with previous experience. With new offensive options offered in the mobile pocket version of the game, the learning curve is being felt by pros and casuals alike with plenty of questions floating around.

Fret not, fellow rocketeer, as we have answers to said questions including how to execute the all-new golden shot in Rocket League Sideswipe!

How to get a golden shot in Rocket League Sideswipe

To get a golden shot in Rocket League Sideswipe, you will need to flip your car into the ball with the ceiling of your vehicle facing your target.

This mechanic boils down to your car’s ceiling flicking the ball into your dodge’s direction, similarly to a Musty flick, and you’ll notice you’ve achieved it by the golden trail around the ball as it moves away from you.

Best uses of golden shots in Rocket League Sideswipe

Just like Musty flicks, golden shots will be powerful enough to cross the entire pitch in one swift move, enough to catch defenders off guard in a quick transition into offence.

This almighty pass or shot combined with the awkward set-up baits the opponents’ into thinking you’ve lost possession and control of the ball, so if coordinated appropriately, you can turn this poor positioning to your advantage with a breakaway.

Remember that golden shots are not easy to pull off and can turn into own goals and turnovers real quick so head into Free Play to practice as much as possible before trying to Musty Flick in Rocket League Sideswipe!
