Rocket League – Season 2 has been extendedPublished March 19, 2021
Rocket League is currently in its 2nd Season, which is the 16th competitive season, and the 2nd one since the Free To Play update. This musically themed season had recently been extended to April 7th.
Released in 2015 by developer and publisher, Psyonix, Rocket League is available on Windows, PS4 and PS5, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch. The game is also available on macOS and Linux, however since a major upgrade early last year, online/multiplayer support has been dropped for these platforms (although they can still be played single-player).
Season 2 began in December 2020 and was expected to end sometime this month, but the good news for players lagging behind in the Competitive mode is that this season has now been extended into April 7th. This will give players a little extra time to take part in the seasonal events and earn awards. It’s not entirely clear what was the reason behind extending the season. Regardless, once the season ends, Boosts will be awarded from Competitive mode, increasing in rarity depending upon the player’s rank. To be clear, if you achieve a certain rank (starting at Bronze continuing to Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond, Champion, Grand Champion, and Supersonic Legend), you will receive all the Boost rewards for the ranks below it.
Grand Champions and Supersonic Legends also win a Title, listed here:
Grand Champion Title Rewards:
- Competitive Grand Champion: “S2 GRAND CHAMPION” in Crimson text
- Rumble Grand Champion: “S2 RNG CHAMP” in Crimson text
- Hoops Grand Champion: “S2 DUNK MASTER” in Crimson text
- Snow Day Grand Champion: “S2 BLIZZARD WIZARD” in Crimson text
- Dropshot Grand Champion: “S2 FLOOR DESTROYER” in Crimson text

- Dropshot Supersonic Legend: “S2 TILE ANNIHILATOR” in Titanium White text
This season also brought dozens of new items ranging from Rare to Black Market level of rarity. For example, Dominus gained its own decal and joined the Octane and the Fennec in the Huntress club. Moreover, some new items like W.I.P. and Exalter Decal, Medianic and Bravado Wheels, and Ambustion Boost have also been added. Don’t forget to check out the all-new Air Strike Goal Explosion! Items can be unlocked either by using Blueprints won in a match to build the item by spending credits or simply buying the item from the Item Shop.
Season 2 brought some exciting changes, including a new music-themed Rocket Pass, featuring the R3MX car body and cosmetics that sync with the in-game music, a new customization option called Player Anthems, and a new arena called Neon Fields.
Like at the end of Season 1, when the Once Season 2 ends, your Tournament Credit balance will be reset, and existing Tournament Credits will convert to All-Star Cups according to the calculation below:
- 0 – 12,000 Tournament credits = 1 All-Star Cup
- 12,001 – 24,000 Tournament credits = 2 All-Star Cups
- 24,001 – 36,000 Tournament credits = 3 All-Star Cups
Good luck to all you Rocket League players in the remaining weeks of Season 2, and stay tuned for Season 3!
