Rocket League Sideswipe is here, and despite the tutorial at the start of the game, some are still asking how you do the elusive air roll maneuver. We think a refresher can never really hurt, so here’s our simple guide on how to do an air roll.
To use the fancy looking technique, just do a double jump while holding the stick in any direction. You’ll do a cool flip towards whichever way you’re facing, twisting your momentum for more accuracy on your shots at the opponent’s goal.
Using a controller to play Rocket League Sideswipe
If you’re not a fan of touch-screen gaming on mobile, you don’t have to be left out of the RL Sideswipe fun, as the game fully supports controllers and handheld-like attachments like the Razer Kishi or the Backbone One.
How do I air roll with a controller in Rocket League Sideswipe, then?
If you use physical controls to play matches of RLS, then you can air roll at any time by simply pressing the right bumper. That’ll be LB or L1 depending on what controller you decide to use. We’ll trust you to work that part out for yourselves.
Are there any secret moves in Rocket League Sideswipe?
There are a few secret moves in Rocket League Sideswipe. The two most interesting ones are named after colors, because they change the color of the ball when performed successfully in the arena.
The Purple Shot
To do a purple shot, you’ll need to time the ball hitting into your ‘belly’ with a double jump. If done successfully a purple blast will bash the ball with extra force.
The Gold Shot
If you want to do a gold shot then you’ll need to double jump and aim yourself in the opposite direction to the ball at the same time.You’ll hit the ball with your rear as a golden blast rockets towards the opponent’s net.
