Have you ever wondered how to flip reset in Rocket League? It’s something that most players will begin to ask as they start to learn about the mechanics of the game beyond just hitting the ball and occasionally scoring goals.
It’s also one of the flashiest mechanics in Rocket League, and while there are many who don’t view it as an essential skill to learn, it’s still damn satisfying to pull off. It’s also incredibly useful if you’re trying to throw off opponents while air dribbling. So, if you’ve been thinking about how to flip reset in Rocket League, then we’re here to help.
What is a flip reset in Rocket League?
So, first of all, what on is a flip reset anyway? Well, a flip reset is a mechanic that players can use to improve their air control. The way that your flip in Rocket League works, is that you can only do it for a short period after jumping. This means you often lose it while aerialing, unless you’re coming from the ceiling where you’ve not had to jump to get airborne.
You can, however, regain your flip as many times as you want as long as you have all four of your wheels touch a surface. That surface doesn’t have to be the floor, wall, or ceiling though. A flip reset is when you use the ball itself to regain your flip, and then you can use that flip to redirect the ball as you see fit.
How to flip reset in Rocket League?
Now then, you know how you can theoretically flip reset in Rocket League, but the actual mechanics required to get all four of your wheels on the ball is an entirely different kettle of Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars.
So, you’re going to need air roll mapped to a button or two, usually air roll left on left bumper or L1, and air roll right on right bumper or R1. Now then, while you can flip reset in a fair few situations, you’re usually going to do this off of the ceiling or following an air dribble. You need to match your speed to the ball, position your car underneath the ball, and then ensure your wheels make solid contact with it. Because the underside of your car is quite soft, you’re not going to move the ball much by doing so.
Congratulations, that’s your flip reset.
You then just need to use your flip to move the ball as you want. This is very much one of those things that’s easier said than done, but this is how to flip reset in Rocket League. Keep in mind that this is going to be much easier if you’re already comfortable doing air dribbles. You can practice these in Freeplay or by using specific training packs using the browser. We recommend learning to air dribble from the wall to begin with, and this position often allows you to be under the ball before you jump anyway, which is far easier than trying to do this from the ceiling, at least for now.
