When it comes to Rocket League, there are two things that take precedence over all else. One is playing well and the other is looking good. You want to be on top of your game but you also want to look stylish when you’re doing it. Thankfully, Rocket League offers a cavalcade of design and customizations you can make to your vehicle to make it stand out on the pitch.
One of the key ways to jazz up your battle car is through classy decals. These are custom stencils and paint jobs that really elevate your cars design to new heights. These also come in animated varieties too, adding a more dynamic style to your cars paint job.
With so many to choose from on the marketplace and through acquiring them in blueprints, it can become daunting to pick the coolest option available. So we have taken the time to sift through the duds and deliver you a list of the best decals on the market. Saving you time so you can focus on playing to your potential. Here is the rundown of the best Rocket League decals on offer.
We start off with this Octane body decal, Biomass. This is a design that looks rather like blood cells. This is only further highlighted by the animated nature of the piece. The accents move slowly through the body as if floating in plasma. It’s an outstanding piece that isn’t for the squeamish type. This decal is a black market rarity and is worth approximately 600 credits or €6 to buy.
If blood makes you feel faint we might suggest you try another one. Though if this looks good to you and you want to make your squeamish opponents lose their composure, Biomass is a great choice.
