The timing will be a little harder to get down at first, but you will see a purple trail behind the ball once you’ve done the shot successfully. 

Best uses of purple shots in Rocket League Sideswipe

Purple shots are extremely powerful and can catch any defence off guard as the awkward positioning under the ball might bait rocketeers into diving headfirst for the possession of the ball.

Essentially turtling before shooting, the set-up is how players get flip resets off of the ball and while resets are threatening on their own, looking like you’re losing control and then ricocheting the ball from coast to coast on the pitch.

Remember that these are big risk-big reward plays so make sure to head into Free Play to practice purple shots as much as possible before pulling them off mid-game!
