I have been playing rocket league for a little over 4 years now and never even really looked at the achievements. However, when I did look, I realized that I was only missing a few (mainly because they require using cars that get played less than 5% of the time).
Achievements That Will Keep You Ball Chasing For a Few Hours
Most of these you will get just from playing, however some require specific game modes or cars to complete.
If you want some easy achievement points, you should be able to complete all of these within just a few hours! Here is how to get each achievement in rocket league starting with the most completed, based on steam’s global achievements stats.
First Timer – Score Your First Goal
This one is very easy, simply score your first goal. BOOM! Done.
Tinkerer – Customize One Slot on Your Car
Another easy one, just add one thing to your car.
Pick-Me Up – Collect 5 Items
Just collect 5 items. You get items from completing matches or leveling up.
Triple Threat – Win a 3v3 Game
You can get this by either winning a 3v3 online match or bot match. Don’t let those bots get the better of you!
Turbocharger – Use Your Rocket Boost For a Total of 5 Minutes
Use that boost! You will unlock this over time, just pick up those pads and keep on boosting.
Car Collector – Collect 5 Cars
Same thing as Pick Me Up, just with cars. You can always buy the dlcs if you aren’t patient.
Wall-Crawler – Drive on The Dome Walls For a Total of 5 Minutes
This achievement is cumulative over all your games so don’t worry about being on the wall the whole game. Focus on other achievements and this will unlock in time.
Winner – Win a Total of 5 Games Across Any Mode
The quickest way to unlock this is to play 1v1 in exhibition mode with an easy bot and a 1 goal limit. Rinse and repeat 4 more times.
Clean Sheet – Win a Game Without Giving up a Single Goal
If you got the Winner achievement how I mentioned above, you will have unlocked this already. If you didn’t, just follow the guide for Winner.
Minute to Win it – With Only 60 Seconds Left, Win a Game in Which You Were Tied or Trailing
This one can be a little tricky, but just start a 1v1 exhibition game with one rookie bot and score when there is less than 1 minute left. You can keep the score 0-0 until 60 seconds left as that is considered a tie.
Gladiator – Play a Game on Utopia Coliseum
Setup an exhibition match on Utopia Coliseum and focus on another achievement for an easy 2 for 1.
Barras Bravas – Play an Online Game with Someone in Your Party
Just play an online match with a friend. Don’t have any friends? Just spam team up after every online match until someone joins your party.
Double Up – Win a 2v2 Game
With your new friend, have them carry you in a 2v2 online match. Or you can just play against some rookie bots.
Pitch Veteran – Play a Total of 20 Games Across Any Game Mode
Honestly just keep focusing on other achievements and this will unlock on its own.
Grease Monkey – Customize the Decal, Topper, Rocket Boost and Wheel on a Car
First you have to collect at least one decal, boost, topper, and wheel. Simply add one of each to a car and the achievement is yours. These all have to be changed on one single car, not over a couple.
Drops in the Bucket – Collect 50 Items
This one will take some time, but be doing those weekly challenges and unlocking the full rocket pass will greatly reduce the duration to earn this.
Speed Demon – Completely Fill and Then Empty Your Rocket Boost 10 Times in a Single Match
Go into a bot match and just boost your heart out, being sure to hit zero before picking up one of the full boost refills. Do this until the achievement pops.
Traveler – Play a Game in Six Different Arenas
Do this as you focus other achievements. Either set each bot match to randomize maps, or just pick a new map each time.
Still A Show-Off – Score a Goal While Reversing
Create a 1v1 exhibition game with a 1 score limit, then join without any bots, and drive backwards into the ball and score.
Helen’s Pride – Score 6 Goals in a Single Game
Create an exhitibion game with a 6 score limit (against rookie bots or no bots if you prefer) and score away. If you can’t score 6 goals in five minutes then you can always bump up the time.
Stocked – Collect 150 Items
Keep grinding those challenges and leveling up your rocket pass until you see that achievement pop up on your screen.
Super Victorious – Win a Total of 30 Games Across Any Game Mode
Another achievement you will unlock as you focus on other achievements. 30 wins goes quick when you set matches to 1 goal limits.
Trifecta – Score a Goal, Save a shot, and Assist a Teammate in a Single Game
This one is tricky to do with bots as they aren’t the best at scoring from your centers, so try to find a friend and just play against rookie bots. Remember, you need to get a goal, save, and assist all in one game.
Good Times – Head to Champions Field and Complete an Online Game
This is just an RNG achievement. Just keep playing online matches until you get champions field. To help your RNG chances, you can pick up to 4 liked arenas and 2 disliked arenas in the menu before you select a game mode.
Singles Club – Win a 1v1 Game
Same concept as Triple Threat and Double up, just create a 1v1 exhibition match with rookie bots and win.
Break Shot – Score a Goal by Hitting Your Opponent Into the Ball
So this is one of the more mechanical achievements to unlock. The easiest way to do this is to do a 1v1 match with a friend and get the ball slowly moving in front of the opponents goal. Have your friend line up with the ball, and hit him (but not to hard to demo him) into the ball and score. May take more than one try, but it beats the alternative of trying in a bot or online match.
All Fours – Win a 4v4 Game
Create a 4v4 exhibition match with rookie bots and win. Or for a better time, try to win in the chaos mode under the casual playlist.
Rider’s Block – Make 20 Saves
Just sit in the goal for a couple of games and smack away any balls that come near you and your precious net.
Budding Artist – Collect a Painted Item
Every time you get an item (besides the first 70 rocket pass items) there is a chance it will be painted. And if you have bad luck and haven’t gotten any painted items by the time you hit 70 in the rocket pass, every level after 70 provides you with a painted item.
GG – Win the MVP Award in a Game That Goes to Overtime
Play a 1v1 exhibition match with a rookie bot and keep the score tied when time runs out to go to overtime. Then just score the winning goal to earn the title of MVP.

Under the training playlist you can choose one of the preset drills (Aerial, Goalie, or Striker) or pick a custom drill made by actual players.
Coming On Strong – Score or Assist a combined 30 goals or assists in Casual or Competitive Online matches
Just keep playing online until you score a combined total of 30 goals/assists.
Far, Far Away… – Drive a total of 50 km
The only way to see how far you have driven is to go to the garage and look at your equipped wheels. This achievement is slightly bugged, so try to stick to one set of wheels for the whole 50 km.
Brave the Elements – Complete a match on wasted land, under the sea, and in outer space
Complete an online or bot match on the following arenas: Wasteland, Aquadome, and Starbase.
Sky High – Score an Aerial Goal
You will need to practice this one a little bit, but you have to score by hitting the ball in the air and it not hitting the ground. If you do this on Aquadome, you can get a two for one by unlocking Get Up, Mr. Bubbles! as well.
Infinite Power! – Activate every power-up in Rumble mode
Go play some rumble online, under the extra game modes playlist, and just use those powerups. There are a total of 11 powerups: The Boot, Disruptor, Freezer, Grappling Hook, Boxing Gloves, Magnet, Plunger, Super Strength, Spikes, Swap, and Tornado.
Friendly – Play an Exhibition match
If you have been following this guide, you will have already unlocked this achievement. If not, then just head to the custom games playlist and pick the exhibition game mode.
Rank Up – Complete all placement matches in any Competitive Playlist
Each game mode in the Ranked and Extra Modes playlist gives you a rank (Bronze -> Silver -> Gold -> Platinum -> Diamond -> Champion -> Grand Champion -> Supersonic Legend) based on your MMR. So to get the achievement, just play 10 matches in any of these game modes and once you get ranked, you will get the achievement as well.
The Streak – Win 10 games in a row across any mode
You can do this easily by just playing a bot match, with no bots and a 1 score limit, ten times. Should only take about ten minutes to do.
Storm Trooper – Equip a Very Rare Item and complete a game in an Arena with turbulent weather
To quickly see the rarity of an item, just look at the backround. Very rare items have a purple backround, and are easily recieved through the weekly challenges or by trading up 5 uncommon items. Once you have a purple item equipped, head to a map with stormy weather and complete one game.
SARPBC Forever – Play one game each with Octane and Backfire
Pretty self explanatory here, just equip the Octane for one game followed by the Backfire.
Rocket Repleter – Make 535 Shots on Goal
I would focus on the achievement last, as by the time you finish this guide, you will probably be pretty close to the 535 mark. The nice thing with this is that its not 535 goals, it’s 535 Shots on goal. So even if someone blocks your goal, it still counts!
Feather in Your Recap – Watch a save file in Replay mode
Just save any match (either hitting the back button in the middle of a match or hitting save replay in the post game menu) and watch it in the replay tab under Profile.
Family, Not Friends – Play a complete game with Dominus or Takumi
Just pick your favorite of the two and complete one game of any type.
Join the Club! – Create or Join a Rocket League Club
I recommend either finding a club with more than one player, or creating one with your friends as you will need at least one other club member to complete a couple achievements down below.
Trade Secret – Trade In five items of the same quality to receive an item of the next-highest quality
Do you have hundreds of uncommon items just sitting in your garage collecting dust? Well if you go to Garage, then Manage Inventory, you can select 5 items to upgrade into 1 item of a higher quality! Trade in 5 exotics to get a painted car!
Together is Better – Play and complete an Online match with one or more Clubmates
Harass one of your clubmates to carry you in an online match. Don’t forget to say thank you!
Perfect Start – Win your first game of the Season
Don’t get this confused with the online season. There is a custom game mode called Season where you play with bots and compete for the championship. If you don’t win your first match, just start a new season and try again.
Drill Sergeant – Complete every Practice Drill (any difficulty)
Go to Training and complete the rookie drill for Aerial, Goalie, and Striker to unlock this achievement.
Squad Goals – Score a Goal while in a Club Match (Online Matchmaking only)
A club match is where both teams consist of only members from the same club. So gather some clubmates and play some online matches until you come across another club. This will also help you get the People Person achievement.
Icing the Cake – In Snow Day, score a goal from your own side of the ice
Play a custom Snow Day match with no bots and shoot the puck from your side of the field into the goal. It can be tricky to get the puck to go in the direction you want.
One Better – Increase the level of a Certified Item
Whenever you get an item, it has a chance to be “Certified”. This means that there is a certain stat it will keep track of as long as it is equipped. To unlock the achievement, just complete the certification stat (ex. Playmaker keeps track of Assists) until it reaches the next level.
People Person – Play and complete 10 Online matches with one or more Clubmates
As long as you don’t rage quit, just complete 10 matches with members from your club.
Mad Scientist – Play a complete match in 3 different Rocket Labs Arenas
Rocket Lab maps don’t show up in any online game mode, except for the rotating game mode Rocket Labs. You can pick these maps in a custom game, but beware, these maps are a lot different than the standard rectangle maps.
Swap Meet – Trade and receive one or more items with another player in a single transaction
If someone is in your party, you can opt to trade with them. Just trade any uncommon item for another uncommon item unlock this.
An Inch and 6.2 Miles – Win a Dropshot match via shutout
So in order to complete this, you must win a dropshot match without giving up one goal. The easiest way to do this is to play a custom match and set it to a 1 goal limit with no bots. Once you score, the game will end and you will have your achievement.
Damage Control – Drive 10 km with the Vortex, Cristiano, or Spinner Wheels
Pick any one of these 3 wheels and drive 10 km in them. They can be painted or certified too!
Ride or Die – Equip Dominus or Takumi with any Decal, then win a game
Pretty straight forward here. Just win a match with a decal equipped on the Dominus or Takumi.
Stopped Cold – Win a Snow Day match with both the Blue and Orange teams
A little RNG if you play online, but if you go and do a bot match with no bots you can pick which team your on and it should only take you 2 games.
Left Wing, Right Wing – In Rumble, freeze an opponent’s shot before it can score
This can be a little tricky but basically just hold onto your freeze ability until an opponent gets a shot on goal, then freeze it. As long as its a shot on goal, you will get the achievement.
Heartbreaker – Win a game against All-Star Bots with a Decal equipped
All that practice will start to pay off when you play against the All-Star bots. Now these bots are equal to probably high silver low gold in ranked so it shouldn’t pose too much of a problem. Equip a decal and beat those bots!
Certifiable – Earn Veteran status for your Certified Item
Veteran is the 4th level of an item, so use that chart above to see what you need to get to reach veteran status.
Don’t Look Back – Use the Thermal, Burnout, or Nitrous Rocket Boost for a total of 10 minutes
10 minutes of boosting is quite a bit. However, just equip any one of these 3 boosts and forget about it. After a little bit, you will see that sweet sweet achievement pop up.
Team Player – Play against every team in a Season
Just complete the regular season of the Season game mode to unlock.
Natural Progression – Win an Online Match with Backfire, Scarab, or Zippy
Backfire, Scarab, and Zippy are car models. Just pick one and win an online match.
Buckminster x10 – Damage a total of 320 panels in Dropshot
This one will come naturally as you play dropshot. Basically, any panel that gets damaged from you will count towards this.
Drift King – Perform a 180 powerslide with Dominus or Takumi
A 180 powerslide is when you hold the ebrake and turn around quickly. So just drive around and when you want to come back to your goal, perform the 180 powerslide.
Fast Break – Score at least 2 Dunks in the first minute of a Hoops game
Dunks, are just shots in the Hoops game mode. Simply score 2 goals within the first minute.
New Challenger – Join and complete an Online Tournament match
Online tournaments are a newer part of the game. Just go to tournaments and see when the next available one is. There are typically 3 a day. And be sure to sign up about 15 minutes prior to the start time if you want to guarantee a spot.
Buzzer Beater – With 30 seconds left, win a game of Hoops in which you were tied or trailing

You will unlock this achievement when you unlock Team Player.
Registered Voter – Head to ‘Arena Preferences’ and use all of your votes
The arena preferences can be found in the upper right corner when you select a playlist. You get 4 likes and 2 dislikes. It really doesn’t do anything as I seem to play my disliked maps just as often.
Hot Shot, Part Two – Win the MVP award using Backfire, Scarab, or Zippy
You can do the 1 goal, no bot method here. Just make sure you have the Backfire, Scarab, or Zippy car equipped.
Psycho-Master Exploder – Demolish 3 opposing bots in Wasteland
Create a 4v4 exhibition match with the Wasteland map selected and rookie bots. Then just hog the boost and slam those cars! Tip: Ramming someone from behind is almost always guaranteed a demo.
Champion – Win the Season Championship
Shouldn’t be too difficult playing against rookie bots. Now go and claim that trophy!
Get Up, Mr. Bubbles! – Score an Aerial goal while playing in AquaDome
Just like the Sky High achievement but on Aquadome! There is a chance for a two for one here if it is your first aerial goal.

Alrighty, you will have to actually try for this one. Just give it your best shot and this will be yours in no time.
Full Course – Score a total of 18 Goals in Dropshot
Another cumulative achievement that will unlock with time in dropshot. Just keep playing until its unlocked.

Adding chaos to chaos. Make sure you have the flamethrower boost active, and hop into the 4v4 casual mode. Oh, and win of course.

You can do this in an exhibition game, just be sure that it is Starbase ARC (Rectangular Map) not just Starbase (Octagonal Map).

Winning is Winning – Win a Season Championship using Dominus in every game
Equip the Dominus and only use that for a whole season in the Season game mode.
Survival of the Fittest – Equip a Topper and win an Unfair Bot Match
An unfair bot match is an actual bot setting when setting up an exhibition game. It is basically 1v2, 1v3, or 1v4 and can be very difficult. Your best bet is to do the 1v2 option with a 1 score limit. Add a spicy topper to your car and just be sure to be the first to score!

Same as with the Savage achievement, just with either the Merc or Grog.
