Rocket League Update 2.06 Patch Notes

Psyonix has released the Rocket League update 2.06 patch for October 12, and this adds the new free play ball controls along with bug fixes and more. Head on for the official patch notes below.

Rocket League Update 2.06 Patch Notes for October 12:

Free Play Ball Control

  • New ball controls are now available in Free Play
    • We want to thank everyone who contributes to BakkesMod and their hard work for inspiring this feature addition
  • You can now control the ball in five different ways with the push of a button:
    • Take Possession: Places the ball in front of your car
    • Start Dribble: Places the ball on the hood of your car
    • Pass Ball: Sends the ball towards your car
      • Sometimes the pass will be just left or right of your car, depending on the angle and position, so heads up!
    • Launch Ball: Behaves similarly to tip-off in Hoops
    • Defend Shot: Shoots the ball towards the closest goal
  • These new controls can be used together
    • Example: You can use Launch Ball to send it high, then Defend Shot to mimic a shot from the ceiling or high up on the wall
  • Ball Reset continues to work as before (return to the kickoff position)
  • Defend Shot and Pass Ball don’t always work as intended in some arenas and modes, including:
    • Double Goals (Rocket Labs)
    • Utopia Retro (Rocket Labs)
    • Dropshot
    • Hoops
  • [Nintendo Switch] When using a single Joy-Con for controls, Free Play Ball Control is disabled

BUG FIXES

General

  • Fixed the appearance of several Decals including Leviathan, Chameleon, and Trigon
  • Fixed a bug causing Esports Shop Decals to cover trim on Painted Car Bodies
  • Fixed a bug with the News Panel
