Every modern pc should be able to handle Rocket League with ease on relatably high fps. The main focus of players looking for the best Rocket League settings is not the graphics settings to boost their fps, but instead, it’s the camera and controls settings they are looking for.
That doesn’t mean that you should not aim for the maximum possible fps in Rocket League. I am just pointing out that you might have to start experimenting with your camera and control settings to start getting better in the game or make your gameplay more enjoyable.
Also at the end of this post you’ll find resources to optimize your pc so you can achieve higher performance, fps, less inputlag, and less latency in Rocket League and any other game you might be playing.
Best Rocket League settings
When it comes to Rocket League settings, whatever you may be looking for, you will probably find it in this guide. I will go in-depth in every important setting and also give you some suggestions either from my experience or from my research on the best Rocket League Pro player’s settings.
Best Rocket League Gameplay Settings
Let’s start with the Gameplay settings tab, nothing big here. Most settings are best to be left as default, maybe except the Game stats setting and the region setting. It’s better to set the Game stats display level setting to Main stats only, and it will just show you like goals, assists, etc., and eliminate useless stuff popping up.
- Text chat: Disabled
- SplitScreen layout: Vertical
- Cross-platform play: Enabled
- Client send rate: High
- Server send rate: High
- Bandwidth limit: High
- Input buffer: Default
- Show competitive divisions: Enabled
- Show extra mode ranks: Enabled
- Game stats display level: Main stats only
- Tournament schedule region: Your region
Best Rocket League Camera Settings
Rocket League camera settings are probably one of the most important settings you should be optimizing and experimenting with. Below you will find suggestions on every setting and the camera settings that Squishy Muffinz is using.
- Camera preset: Custom
- Camera shake: All it does is shake your camera and make things a little harder to see.
- Keep this disabled.
- Field of View: By turning the Field of View value up, you gain a wider perspective of the field and allow yourself to take in more information while keeping your camera the same distance.
- The majority of pro players, including Squishy Muffinz, are using 110.
- Distance: Distance is pretty simple. Increasing the Distance value will pull the camera back from your car, and dropping the Distance value will cause the camera to move closer.
- Most people, including Squishy Muffinz, use 270
- Height: This setting sets the height of your camera. By increasing it, your camera will go up, and by decreasing, the camera will go down.
- 90 – 110. Squishy Muffinz uses 100.
- Angle: Changes the angle that your camera is looking at the car.
- Set this between -5 to -3. Squishy Muffinz uses -5.
- Stiffness: One of the most important Rocket League camera settings since it affects each of the rest of the Rocket Leagues’ camera settings. Except for controlling how rigidly your camera follows your car, it also impacts a few other things as well. With lower stiffness, as you begin to accelerate and make your way around the field, your camera will begin to move further away from your car. Then as you slow down, your camera will move back towards its original position. So you can imagine that setting this to the highest value will make your camera stay the same on any acceleration or movement.
- Set this between 0.35 – 0.7. Most people use 0.40 – 0.45. Squishy Muffinz uses 0.40.
- Swivel speed: Sensitivity of your camera. Basically, how quickly your camera will pan around while moving the right analog stick to check around the field.
- Set this between 4 – 6. Squishy Muffinz uses 4.70.
- Transition speed: How quickly you move between your ball and car camera.
- Set the value between 1.0 – 1.3. Squishy Muffinz uses 1.20.
- Invert swivel: Disabled
Best Rocket League Control settings
Below you’ll find suggestions on sensitivity settings and generally control settings widely used and proven to work pretty well for most of the players. I highly encourage you to start testing these settings by yourself and find which gives you the best feeling while playing.
- Steering sensitivity: 1.15 – 1.85. Squishy Muffinz uses 1.40.
- Aerial Sensitivity: 1.15 – 1.85. Squishy Muffinz uses 1.40.
- Controller Deadzone: 0.05. Squishy Muffinz uses 0.05.
- Dodge deadzone: 0.5 – 0.75. Squishy Muffinz uses 0.75.
- Controller vibration: Disabled.
- Ball camera mode: Toggle.
- Mouse sensitivity: 1.0
