Want to know how to perform a Rocket League Sideswipe air roll? The new mobile version of the popular automotive ball game is finally out on Android and iOS, letting people play off against each other side-scrolling soccer matches. The perspective may have shifted, but at its heart, Sideswipe still feels like Rocket League.

As you'd expect from a simplified mobile version of the original, performing a Rocket League Sideswipe air roll is easier than ever. Its scaled-down arenas, higher goals, and automatically regenerating boost make the Rocket League Sideswipe air roll trick is an essential skill. And we're going to teach you how to master it.

Sideswipe isn't here to replace the original game. If you're a big fan of Rocket League, but sure to check out our Rocket League codes guide. We've even been so bold as to look into whether the mega-hit sports game could be dying. Spoiler: it's not. And it won't if it would just embrace the Volleyball mode Sideswipe basically is.

In Rocket League Sideswipe, your booster fuel automatically regenerates while you're on the ground, making it a lot easier to battle with other players in the air. At the same time, this is a side-scrolling game, meaning that you have one less dimension to take into account than with the original version. All of this serves to make aerial maneuvering significantly easier.

The Rocket League Sideswipe air roll isn't the best defensive tool, but it can help.

You can test the new Rocket League Sideswipe air roll functionality on the ground, too. Just face up and tap the joystick twice to start air rolling. As this is a side-scrolling game, the air roll doesn't actually seem to do much beyond making you look cool.

The double jump that you get from tapping the jump button twice (or once when boosting the air) is far more useful in practice. Even the loop-the-loop skill will prove pretty effective at blocking the ball and covering a wide area.

And that's how to do a Rocket League Sideswipe air roll. There's every chance the air roll could change as the game matures, but for now, it's a relatively simple trick that doesn't serve much of a purpose. Still, if it's anything like early Rocket League, performing any fancy aerial stunt will make lesser players fear your supposed skill. It's all about the mind games.
