Best Rocket League Goals of All Time
At its heart, Rocket League is a relatively simple game, car football. The inclusion of the rockets on the cars, however, literally adds a new dimension to the game. The combination has created a well-loved game and opened up a new esport where fans can see the best of the best playing at the top of their game. Of course, these ace players are going to score some of Rocket League’s best goals. To celebrate this, we’ve pulled together our list of the best goals in Rocket League.
Jstn – NRG
In what is possibly the best Rocket League goal of all time, NRG’s jstn scored an iconic zero-second aerial equaliser against Dignitas to take game seven, in the best of seven grand final match, to overtime. The round started with four seconds of regular time left to play, NRG kept the ball in the air and the game alive for twelve seconds after the time ran out. With the ball arcing over the field, jstn launched from behind the halfway line, into an aerial strike above the penalty area, down, and into the goal.
The tournament casters were suitably impressed by this display of brilliance, screaming “This is Rocket League!” and “The rocket of the year”.
Squishy – Cloud9
In a match against FC Barcelona, Cloud9’s Squishy scored a sweet outside-inside double-tap. Intercepting a cross in mid-air, Squishy hit the ball against the wall to the side of the goal. This may sound like a missed shot but Squishy kept flying and hit the ball again after it bounced back off of the wall. This time, the ball sailed over the two misplaced defenders and scored in the far corner of the goal. He is second on our list, but is still the favorite for Rocket League Betting in Season X.
Sadjunior feat. Jacob – NRG
Often the most eye-catching plays are singular moments of brilliance, although these moments are enabled by the rest of the team. There are some truly great goals, however, that are the immediate product of great teamwork. SadJunior and Jacob are known for making some insane teamplay goals, and they are featured in plenty “best rocket league goals” lists. In one such scenario with only seconds to go versus Revival, NRG tie the score with 11 seconds to go in an amazing pass and touch duo play.
Deevo – Guild Esports
We have to feature Deevo among the best goal scorers and goals in Rocket League. It’s hard to select which clip is our favorite from DynamicDave, as every season we get surprised with a clutch double tap goal. He is the “double tap” king and has made this type of play a signature type play in Rocket League.
Here’s Deevo’s double tap that re-difined the way goals are scored.
Squishy – Cloud9
With his second entry on this list, Cloud9’s Squishy scored using a move he invented. Launching the ball up off the side of the arena Squishy followed it up the wall and then flew down behind it. Just before the goalie could save the shot, he flipped, just underneath the ball, changing the trajectory and making the goal a sure thing.
