Bring the Heat in Rocket League Sideswipe Season 14!

2024-02-26 | Psyonix Team


The Rocket Ball has acquired its target. The heat is on in Sideswipe Season 14 as Heatseeker returns as a Ranked playlist! Heatseeker joins the regular Solo Duel and Doubles—rank up in these playlists to lock onto Season 14’s Season Rewards.


Heatseeker Bounces Back!

In Heatseeker, the ball has a mind of its own. But the thing is—it only has its mind set on the goal 🥅

Here’s how it works: As soon as you tap the ball, it’ll automatically go towards your rivals’ goal. If you misdirect the ball and it hits the backboard instead, it’ll automatically go towards your goal. Each time the ball is touched by a player or a backboard, it’ll gain speed until it lands in goal. 

Get more points than the other team before time runs out, but watch out for the other cars as collisions are enabled in this mode. Think fast in this 2v2 playlist!


Sideswipe and Rocket League - Bonus XP Reminder

As a reminder, if you’re playing 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, once you win an Online Match in Rocket League, you'll get extra XP for that Bonus Win. This also works the other way around, meaning every time you level up in Rocket League, you’ll earn a Bonus Win in Sideswipe. Once you win an Online Match in Sideswipe, you’ll get extra XP for the Bonus Win.
