Rocket League Sideswipe Season 16 Hoops.webp

It’s time to go hard in the paint as Hoops returns as a Ranked playlist in Sideswipe Season 16! No need for a timeout—Season 16 is live now.

⁠⁠If you prefer the classic playlists, you can rebound back to Solo Duel and Doubles for regular Ranked gameplay! Rank up in at least one of these three playlists to unlock as many painted Cristiano Wheels as you can. These rewards will be granted when Season 16 ends!

Speaking of Season Rewards, you’ll also get your earned Season Titles from Hoops + Solo Duel/Doubles after Season 16. (For example: “S16 Hoops Gold,” “S16 Gold,” etc.)

Nothing But a Net Winning Record

In the 2v2 “Hoops,” the goal isn’t what you’re used to. Instead of an opening in the arena wall, you’ll try to land the ball in a gap horizontal to the ground. This switch in set-up means you should go for ceiling bounces, bank shots, and don’t forget bounce passes! The team with the most points before time runs out wins.

⁠⁠Sideswipe and Rocket League - Bonus XP Reminder

The ball may go over your head, but we’re not letting this: if you play Rocket League Sideswipe with the same Epic account you use to play Rocket League, you can earn bonuses in both games! 

Every time you level up in Sideswipe, you'll earn a Bonus Win in Rocket League. Then, after winning an Online Match in Rocket League, you'll get extra XP for that Bonus Win. It works the same way in reverse: every time you level up in Rocket League, you’ll earn a Bonus Win in Sideswipe. After winning an Online Match in Sideswipe, you’ll get extra XP for the Bonus Win.
