if Rocket League continues to grow and develop as a game, new limited time modes and features are added to the franchise on a regular basis. Between the recent addition of Gotham City Rumble and Knockout Bash, fans have had a lot of new content to enjoy.
But it’s not the game modes that keep players flocking to the game. As with most franchises, it’s the core gameplay that keeps fans engaged and, at the heart of Rocket League, the cars entertain the fans. That’s why fans recently voted for it ranker to determine which of the cars in the game can really be considered the best.
A DLC car released in the Supersonic Fury pack, the Takumi shares the same hitbox as the Octane while looking like a much more standard vehicle. While not the coolest car in video games, it is a fast vehicle that feels comfortable for any player.
For players looking for cars that have more in common with what they drive in real life or in other franchises, the Takumi is the perfect combat car. For players looking for wilder designs that better reflect the unique Rocket League environment, there are a few other choices that might draw a little more attention.
9 And do
A more recent release than the Takumi, the Endo is another standard looking vehicle, though at least it has a much more luxurious look. With a clear and obvious hybrid-style hit box, it’s also a competitive car that new players can easily get the hang of — something especially essential in a sports gaming franchise like Rocket League†
Aesthetically speaking, while players can access the car in almost any finish, the black-colored Endo is infamous once removed. Now the black Endo is incredibly expensive, but players can still get it if they want.
8 Jager 619 RS
A fighting car originally only available via crates, the Jäger 619 RS is another hybrid style vehicle meaning it has a height like the Takumi and also a nice width leading to good handling and ball control.
It goes without saying that the vehicle’s simple design has also contributed to its popularity. With its uncomplicated frame, there are countless options for customization for fans to cycle through, helping to ensure a comfortable variety for players interested in mixing things up.
7 McLaren 570S
A car taken from the real world and thrown into a virtual environment, the McLaren 570S is a luxury car that players were eager to compete with. While the vehicle was originally introduced in a DLC, it was recently brought back into the Free to Play era and players could purchase the McLaren 570S for a limited time.
With a clean look and a hit box to match the Dominus, the car was a hit with the fans. The only thing fans found uncomfortable with the McLaren 570S was the difficulty in customizing the vehicle, which left some players completely ignoring it.
6 ’16 Batmobile
For players not interested in customization, but instead looking for a competitive vehicle with great aesthetics, the 2016 Batmobile is the perfect combat car. Released in the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice DLC, both regular and pro players are enamored with the car, due to its appearance, wide hit box and limited height.
The ’16 Batmobile also manages to maintain the status of one of the best Batmobiles ever, making it even more appealing to fans. After all, who wouldn’t want to race through an arena like Bruce Wayne?
5 Dominus (Premium)
The Premium Dominus, which looks like a car someone might find in a James Bond movie, was one of the most popular and highly regarded cars in the game. It’s not hard to see why.
Although it has several color variants and a wide variety of decals, players enjoy the Dominus for its handling in the air and how difficult it was to access the vehicle. As the car that set the blueprint for the Dominus hitbox, it led to the creation of other vehicles that would eventually lead to a decline in its own popularity, especially among the pros.
4 ’99 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34
While Rocket League often draws obvious comparisons to the Fast and furious franchise, no car takes it as literally as the ’99 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34 does. Also, the other cars don’t have names that are so hard to remember. The vehicle is also incredibly easy to play with, as its shape makes it a perfect match for its hybrid hitbox.
Although it was temporarily retired, the battle car returned for a short time due to the Fast and furious DLC bundle, which led to a resurgence in popularity for the ’99 Nissan Skyline GT-R R34.
3 Dominus (exotic)
So loved that fans have mentioned it twice, the Dominus is more than just a Premium Fighter Car. After the game switched to Free to Play, the Dominus was made available to all players, leading to more than a few casual fans picking the Dominus as their personal favorite.
Sometimes rarity is a boon to a vehicle, but in the case of the Dominus, accessibility is the mother of adoration, as fans didn’t really appreciate what was there until they actually got their hands on it.
The vehicle that borrowed the Dominus hitbox and never looked back, the Fennec is adored by fans. With a unique look and solid handling that made many professional players pick it up, this battle car is regarded as one of the very best in the game.
Unlike the Dominic, the Fennec is not the easiest to purchase. While it used to be accessible via crates, the vehicle cannot be accessed without a visit to the shop, trade, or via blueprints, which in some ways only adds to its desirability. Plus, it has significant customizations that make many players all the more excited to get their hands on it.
There’s something to be said for nostalgia, and if the car that every Rocket League player started, there is a lot of affection for the Octane. The Octane, the most widely used car in the game by casual and professional players alike, has drawn a lot of love from gamers over the years.
With its fun and unique appearance, the Octane itself seems fresh compared to vehicles in other racing games. It also has a lightweight feel that makes flying through the air an absolute breeze. Besides, with decals like the Dragon Lord, it’s hard not to love the Octane.
