I believe everyone should play like a winner, and the best ways to do it are practice and the way you set up your settings. 

Settings can actually give you more advantages than you think and make the game easier for you to master, which is why I wanted to give you the 25 best rocket league video settings that will give you an advantage. 

 

25. Switch off Camera Shake

The default camera setting is actually quite disadvantageous in a competitive setting. When you are trying to line up a nice shot in the air and your camera begins to shake and what was an easy goal you were trying to hit, is no longer easy at all.

How it solves the problem?

It prevents the camera from shaking during the gameplay

How to apply this setting

  • First go to the options screen from either the main menu or the pause menu during a game.
  • Click on the Camera tab
  • Deselect “Camera Shake

 

24) Increase your Field of View (FOV)

The default FOV doesn’t give you the maximum view of the field

How to solve the problem?

The higher the FOV, the greater the view of the field. Most pro players use a complete 110 FOV, giving them the maximum view and an advantage over their opponents who may not be using the full view in their settings.

How to apply this setting

  • First go to the options screen from either the main menu or the pause menu during a game.
  • Go to the Camera tab
  • Move the Field of View all the way to the right to make it 110

How to solve the problem?

The preferred distance differs from person to person but usually a distance in the range of 260 to 280 is considered ideal.

How to apply this setting

  • First go to the options screen from either the main menu or the pause menu during a game.
  • Open the Camera tab
  • Move the Distance to the range you would like

 

22) Height of the camera

When players have their height setting wrongly adjusted, they may face trouble aligning the car with the ball when going for aerial shots.

How to apply this setting

  • First go to the options screen from either the main menu or the pause menu during a game.
  • Open the Camera tab
  • Move the Height adjuster accordingly

 

21) Angle of the camera

If your angle setting is too low then you will look like you are looking at your car from a bird’s eye view and having it too high, the angle will be much too flat.

How to solve the problem?

Having the right angle will allow you to have a better overview of the pitch in front of you. The best number to have a well aligned angle is -5.00.

How to apply this setting

  • First go to the options screen from either the main menu or the pause menu during a game.
  • Open the Camera tab
  • Move the Angle adjuster to -5.00

 

20) Camera Stiffness

Camera stiffness is how loose the camera is when it follows your car. If the camera's stiffness setting is on high, the camera will follow your car very rigidly, while if set on low, camera will zoom out very far when you are on a high speed.

How to solve the problem?

To make your camera follow your car without being wobbly, The best setting for this will be 0.45.

How to apply this setting

  • First go to the options screen from either the main menu or the pause menu during a game.
  • Open the Camera tab
