Top 5 Rarest Cars in Rocket League
Find out about the Rarest Rocket League Cars available!
Psyonix, the developers of Rocket League, have put a great deal of focus into the game’s cosmetics. The game has plenty of items to collect, but the most important are cars. Cars can be unlocked through progression, blueprints, trading with others, and in-game challenges. Collecting car bodies benefits you not only aesthetically but in gameplay aspects as well.
In the game’s earlier days, loot boxes were the only way to collect the rarest cars. After Epic Games acquired Psyonix, they eventually switched the system to that of Blueprints, where you could buy the blueprint of exactly what you want directly from the shop. After this change, many cars in the game could not be acquired anymore as there was no blueprint for them. This made some cars even rarer.
Each car had a different hitbox in the earlier days of Rocket League. This made each car have a different feel to it and made each car worth striving for. In the year 2017, Psyonix standardised hitboxes as part of their Anniversary update as a way to balance vehicles in the game. Each car’s hitbox fell under 1 of 6 default hitboxes, significantly reducing the game’s variety. Despite this, many players are still looking to find the rarest cars and flaunt their style. And here are 5 of the rarest.
The Rarest Cars in Rocket League
5. Platform Exclusive Cars
Rocket League comprises cars that are exclusive to specific platforms. These include –
- Mario & Luigi cars & Samus’ Gunship on the Nintendo Switch
- The Sweet Tooth on the PlayStation
- Cars based on Halo & Gears of War on the Xbox
While these cars aren’t tough to obtain, they’re rare as their availability is split into a quarter due to the multiple platforms in Rocket League. You cannot even view these cars if you are playing on a different platform. For example, say you are a PlayStation player with cross-play enabled playing against a player on the Nintendo Switch. If the Nintendo player uses a Mario car, you will see a standard Octane on your screen.
Armadillo is another platform-exclusive car available solely on the Xbox. However, it deserves its own entry because it is statistically much rarer than any other platform-exclusive car. The funny part is it isn’t even that hard to unlock. Most other platform-exclusive cars require you to get one win with all standard bodies in the game. The Armadillo requires you to complete an entire season in the single-player season mode.
While that isn’t exactly challenging, the number of players playing single-player mode in Rocket League is negligible. This statistically makes the Armadillo much rarer than any other platform-exclusive vehicle. Similar to other platform-exclusive vehicles, you will see a standard Octane if you play against an Xbox player using the Armadillo on another platform.
3. Titanium White Octane
With this entry, fans are getting into the really rare entries on this list. You can no longer acquire the Titanium White Octane through the shop or any other traditional means. You could craft one of these earlier before the loot system in the game was completely revamped. The only way to get this car is by scrolling through secondary markets and trading with other players.
The Octane is one of the most popular cars in the game due to its tight turn radius, excellent design and the overall feel of the car. The Titanium White version looks really sleek and stylish. Due to this, players possessing this car are highly unlikely to want to trade with you. If you wish to obtain one of these for yourself, be ready to pay a pretty price.
2. Titanium White Dominus
Take everything just said about the Octane and apply it to the Titanium White Dominus. On top of that, considering the Dominus is a less-picked car than the Octane, this makes its Titanium White version even rarer than Octane’s. Don’t be fooled by its lack of popularity, though. Dominus is still the third-most-picked car in the game and the number-one choice for freestylers. Added to this is that the Titanium White Dominus is shinier and more glittery than the Octane counterpart, making it a tough piece of cosmetics to obtain.
1. Saffron Dominus GT
This car is so unbelievably rare you will hardly find anything about it online. There is still a lot of debate about whether this car was ever even supposed to be in the game or if it simply is a glitch considering its rarity. Needless to say, you cannot get this item in the game anymore. Let us break down the rarity of this car.
Painted Dominus GTs were part of the first-ever crate released in Rocket League. The crates were retired over five years ago, even before loot crates were completely removed from the game. The car was of “import” rarity. The chance of pulling an import from a crate is 12%. As there were three imports in the crate, the chance of pulling an unpainted Dominus GT was about 4%.
Rocket League revealed that there is a 1 in 4 chance of your item being painted, thus making the chance of pulling a painted Dominus GT 1%. As there were 14 colours in the game, this further reduces the chance of pulling a specific colour to 0.13%. So why is the Saffron colour the rarest of them all? Rocket League made it so you could trade up painted versions of these “Non-painted cars”. This feature was only in the game for one hour.
To summarise, not only do you have to have one of the rarest loot crates in the game retired over five years ago. You also had to do this trade-up in a one-hour time frame where no one even knew it was possible to get this specific colour painted. The probability of someone having this car is greater than one in a million. To public knowledge, only three players in the entire game have this car. It is rumoured to be worth over $2000 if you purchase it in the secondary market.
These were some of the rarest cars in Rocket League. Starting from platform-exclusive cars to cars solely existing in the game because of a possible glitch. These cars are worth a lot of money in-game and are a treat for a collector to have in his arsenal. It is exciting to see what cosmetics and car bodies Psyonix are going to come up with next and will it change the gameplay, fans have to see.
