Gamers, in general, are known for discovering both intended and unintended mechanics and exploits in their favourite titles and Rocket League players are no different.
The release of Rocket League Sideswipe, the car soccer pocket version that lives in your phone, has users all over the globe searching every corner of the internet for metas that will help them rank up easier and new powerful shots are quickly starting to cover the internet.
These strats will be all over your playlists any time now, yet fret not, fellow rocketeer, as here’s everything you need to know to pull off the powerful purple shot in Rocket League Sideswipe!
How to get a purple shot in Rocket League Sideswipe
To get a purple shot in Rocket League Sideswipe, you will need to use your flip with all of your four wheels facing the ball and dodging into it.
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!
