What Are The Best Rocket League Crates?

Rocket League is not the game you think it is. If you thought it was about flying cars and scoring goals you’re wrong. Rocket League is a game all about aesthetics. You want to the best-looking car and for that, you must use crates. Crates give you the best items in the game, and there’s two way to open them. You can use keys. Which cost you $1.49. Or grind to get some decryptors from the rocket pass. Be aware though as items gained from decryptors are non-tradable. There are 15  crates in total (including special events) but only 5 will be considered the best. Each crate is ranked by key values and market trends.

Item Types

Before we begin driving into the best crates we must know the items. Each item in a crate can be one of five types. These types are rare, very rare, import, exotic and black market. They can also be painted or certified or both if lucky. Rare types are indicated by a grey background. These items have a drop rate of 55%. Making it one of the most common types and the least valuable. Very rare types are indicated by the blue background. Very rare items have a drop rate of 28% making them a bit more valuable than rare. Imports are our next type. They have a red background. Imports have a drop rate of 12%. Your car bodies are imports types. Imports hold more value than very rare. Exotics is the next type. They have a green background and have a drop rate of 4%. They are more valuable than imports. Finally, we have black markets. This is where we find the most coveted items. Black markets have a purple background and a drop rate of 1%. They are the most valuable items in the game. Then we have painted and certified attributes. Both have a 25% drop rate. Remember if its crimson or titanium white its worth something. Now we established the item types. Let’s look at those top 5 crates.
