Rocket League Update 2.06 Patch Notes
Free Play Ball Control
- New ball controls are now available in Free Play
- We want to thank everyone who contributes to BakkesMod and their hard work for inspiring this feature addition
- You can now control the ball in five different ways with the push of a button:
- Take Possession: Places the ball in front of your car
- Start Dribble: Places the ball on the hood of your car
- Pass Ball: Sends the ball towards your car
- Sometimes the pass will be just left or right of your car, depending on the angle and position, so heads up!
- Launch Ball: Behaves similarly to tip-off in Hoops
- Defend Shot: Shoots the ball towards the closest goal
- These new controls can be used together
- Example: You can use Launch Ball to send it high, then Defend Shot to mimic a shot from the ceiling or high up on the wall
- Ball Reset continues to work as before (return to the kickoff position)
- Defend Shot and Pass Ball don’t always work as intended in some arenas and modes, including:
- Double Goals (Rocket Labs)
- Utopia Retro (Rocket Labs)
- Nintendo Switch] When using a single Joy-Con for controls, Free Play Ball Control is disabled
-Fixed the appearance of several Decals including Leviathan, Chameleon, and Trigon
-Fixed a bug causing Esports Shop Decals to cover trim on Painted Car Bodies
-Fixed a bug with the News Panel
-The ‘Goop XS’ and ‘Goop SE’ Decals appear as placeholder textures
