Rocket boosts are a customization option in Rocket League. They shoot out of the back of the vehicle when using boost, and depending on the car equipped, either shoot out in a single or double trail. Rocket boosts record the time of boost used while equipped.

Prior to July 5, 2017, rocket boosts were known as "rocket trails". They were renamed to avoid confusion with the new supersonic trails.[1]

Rocket boosts listed here are unlocked simply by completing a certain amount of matches. Standard Red, Blue, Pink, Purple and Yellow are already unlocked at the beginning of the game.

On August 3, 2017, Psyonix introduced painted variants of some common boosts, which are classified as import rarity and can be obtained via the trading system.[2]
