Rocket League’s transition to a free-to-play model has been seamless, partly due to its well-established in-game economy centered around “credits.” These credits serve as the game’s currency, allowing players to purchase cosmetic items, blueprints, and more. In this article, we will explore the various methods of obtaining credits in Rocket League, including both in-game and external trading platforms.
How to Get Credits in Rocket League
While many free-to-play games reward players with in-game currency for playing, Rocket League operates differently. Here, you must acquire credits through the in-game store or other means. Let’s explore the available options:
1. Purchase Credits
The most straightforward method is to buy credits directly from the in-game store. Each credit holds a value of $0.01, meaning that 500 credits can be purchased for $5. Higher bundles, such as 1,100, 3,000, and 6,500 credits, are available at $10, $25, and $50, respectively. Although this approach requires spending money, it is often the most convenient option.
2. Rocket Pass
Rocket League offers a Rocket Pass, similar to a battle pass in other games. By investing 1,000 credits ($10) in the Rocket Pass, you can earn cosmetic items, XP boost tokens, and credits as you progress through its tiers. Notably, you will receive 100 credits every 12 tiers until tier 60. At tier 67, an additional 100 credits can be earned, culminating in a maximum of 600 credits. If the Rocket Pass includes items you desire, this is an excellent way to regain some of your credits. However, if the contents do not interest you, it may be wiser to save your credits for other purchases.
Another option is to obtain credits through packs available for purchase with real-world currency. The Starter Pack, aimed at new players, is particularly enticing. For $5, you will receive 500 credits, along with an import body, rocket boost, rare wheels and trail, and a rare decal. These packs offer a range of cosmetic items, making them a valuable purchase.
How to Get Credits for Free in Rocket League
While there is no official method for obtaining credits for free in Rocket League, you can leverage external trading platforms to trade your way to in-game currency within the game. However, exercise caution to avoid scams. A reputable platform for Rocket League trading is Rocket League Garage. By joining their Discord channel, you will gain access to a highly active community of traders.
There are a few prerequisites and limitations when it comes to trading:
- You need to have purchased at least 500 credits (starter pack credits count) to engage in trading. This requirement does not apply if you owned Rocket League before the free-to-play update.
- Trading is limited to players on the same platform. However, since Rocket League supports cross-progression, you can log in to any platform to view your tradeable items.
- Certain items cannot be traded, such as unrevealed Blueprints, shop-purchased items, and bonus gifts. Additionally, you cannot trade credits for credits or receive credits without offering an item in return.
Remember, when trading with a partner, initiate the trade process within the game itself. Beware of external trade offers, as they are often scams.
Rocket League: Credits vs. E-Sports Tokens
Rocket League features two types of in-game currencies: credits and e-sports tokens. While credits are used to purchase cosmetic items from the general item shop, e-sports tokens are exclusive to the e-sports item section of the shop. E-sports tokens represent the North American and European e-sports teams in Rocket League, such as G2, Rogue, Team Liquid, and Dignitas.
E-sports tokens hold the same real-world value as credits ($0.01 per token). However, the available bundles differ slightly. You can purchase 100, 600, 1,200, or 2,500 e-sports tokens for $1, $5, $10, or $20, respectively. Since e-sports items are generally cheaper than rare items in the shop, you may not require a significant number of tokens. Notably, e-sports tokens cannot be obtained through trading.
In conclusion, credits play a vital role in Rocket League’s in-game economy. While purchasing credits is the most straightforward method, options such as the Rocket Pass and packs offer alternative avenues for obtaining them. Additionally, external trading platforms can provide opportunities to acquire credits through player-to-player trades. Remember to exercise caution when trading and always ensure the legitimacy of the platform and offers.
