The Rocket Pass is a time-limited progression system that gives several ways to earn new content in Rocket League. There are several Rocket Passes every year, with an emphasis on new, unique content for each Pass.
All items from Rocket Pass 1 can be freely traded; however, starting with Rocket Pass 2, items in the Premium Upgrade path for Tiers 1-70 cannot be traded, 'Pro Tier' items (i.e. Tier 71 and above) and Free items can still be traded with other players.
Note: Rocket Pass is no longer be numbered on its own, and will instead be an extension of the competitive season it is released with.
The free Rocket Pass has rewards that unlock automatically, allowing everyone to earn free new battle-car customization items, Player Banners, and in-game Titles.
If you are looking for additional content to unlock, you can choose to purchase the Premium Rocket Pass upgrade for one thousand Credits (USD 9.99 or regional equivalent). This comes with even more content, including new premium customization items, including premium battle-cars, premium Player Banners, premium Titles, and Credits, You also unlock ‘XP Boosts’ that multiply your earned XP throughout the Rocket Pass, as well as ‘XP Awards’ that can help you advance through Rocket Pass more quickly.
You're able to upgrade to premium at any time while a Rocket Pass is active without losing any progress - you immediately receive premium rewards up to your current pass tier.
If you are interested in purchasing the Premium upgrade, you will be able to view every piece of its content before upgrading, so you will know exactly what items are coming your way before you buy.
Tiers, Pro Tiers and Tiering Up
Each time you level up while Rocket Pass is active, you earn one Pass Tier. The more Tiers you earn, the more rewards you unlock. If you want those Premium rewards sooner than later, you can also ‘Tier Up’ by purchasing Tiers outright with Credits.
Once you've unlocked all of the available Tiers in your Pass, you can begin earning ‘Pro Tiers’ if you've purchased the Premium upgrade. Each Pro Tier rewards you with a random Painted and/or Certified version of a Premium Rocket Pass item you've already unlocked. There are no duplicate rewards from Pro Tiers unless you've completed the full set of each Paint Color and Certification for the current Pass.
