What Is The Breakout Type-S in Rocket League?
This car model is a variation of the standard breakout car type. Unlike the standard design, this model swaps out the flat and long design for a more shapely figure. Almost imitating an hourglass shape which offers a very pleading design.
This design also offers a great deal more protruding ridges and details that make it feel less like a slim race car and more like a bulky Mustang or GTR design.
This car was first released in October 2016 and would only be obtainable by chance in the Champions Crate which was available for purchase at the time. This would also become available in the player’s choice crate in February 2017.
This car shares the exact same hitbox stats as the standard Breakout model. Just for clarity, here is a list of these stats below:
- Length – 131,49
- Width – 80,53
- Height – 30,30
- Surface area – 32.679
- 0% Boosting – 2,336
- 100% Boosting – 2,035
- Turning average – 2,22
The Breakout hitbox, although not the most popular choice for many players, still has its backers. Especially with professional and highly ranked players. In casual play, this car doesn’t offer the flexibility that these match types need. However, in structured professional settings, this model can be used very effectively.
The key highlights of this model that make it viable are its fantastic shot and pass impact. Although this can be hard to master, if you do, this car can deliver thumping shots and allow for intricate long and short build-up play.
Breakout Type-S – Decals
This model takes some of the decal concepts of the standard edition and then builds on these with some unique ideas and designs. Here’s a list of the common decals first:
- Hyper flight
- Shock wave
A couple of these match up with the standard variant. However, there are three unique decals for this version. The best of these in our opinion is the hyper flight decal. This design gives the feeling that your car moving so fast that the paint is striping. It’s a fantastic option. Don’t take our word for it, take a look.
Next up we have the rare decals for the Breakout Type-S. Take a look:
- Funny book
This a much more shortlist than the normal variant but it doesn’t hurt the quality of the decals on offer. Our favorite of the three is Smore’d. This decal shows a cartoonish flaming marshmallow, not unlike the famous DJ, marshmallow. It’s a great look, take a gander:
Then lastly we have the very rare decals on offer, just the one this time. Here it is:
Distortion is an excellent decal, more than earning its very rare prestige. The detail of this fragmentary and rough design really adds to the aesthetic of the car model. If you can’t imagine that then look below and see for yourself.
Snaky BTS: (Breakout Type-S painted black)
This design is a little reminiscent of the (breakout design 2) in both its yellow and black color scheme and its dynamic effects. It uses a specter decal to make the body look like an apparition, then uses black hypnotic wheels to continue the paranormal and surreal vibe.
- Decal: Spectre (primary color: yellow, accent color: black)
- Wheels: Hypnotik (painted black)
- Boost: Slash Beam III (painted saffron)
This design is finished off with a saffron Slash beam III boost trail, tying the piece together beautifully even at top speed. So for those that like dynamic, vibrant and somewhat surreal designs, we recommend this design very highly.
MAD BTS: (Breakout Type-S painted crimson)
Then we have a design that uses that same red and black contrast as its Breakout contingent (breakout Design 3). This design uses a skull decal to give an edgy and sinister vibe to the vehicle, then adds to this with chakram wheels and a stranger things boost trail.
- Decal: Skull (primary color: red (metallic pearl), accent color: black (brushed metal))
- Wheems: Chakram (no paint)
- Boost: Stranger things
Overall, this design is a simple but effective one. Using no dynamic effects to draw the eye but instead, some smart decal choices and a dark, ominous aesthetic choice. Give this one a go if it sounds like something you would enjoy cruising around in.
Coded Breakout Type-S
This design uses a beautiful teal car body color and a pure white mobo decal to give an overall took of a cyberpunk sports car from the future. This is complemented with chakram wheels painted in white and the hot rod boost trail painted in sky blue.
- Decal: Breakout Type-S: Mobo (primary color: dark cyan (anodized), accent color: white (glossy)
- Wheels: chakram (painted titanium white)
- Boost: Hot Rod (painted sky blue)
This design is arguably the pick of the bunch for the Breakout Type-S. Delivering a fully fleshed out and futuristic design that is perfect for the setting of Rocket League. So if you want to move your style into the 31st century, try this one on for size.
Breaking out from the Norm
Overall, this car takes the standard edition and gives it a new coat of polish. Along with a fantastic range of protruding ridges and details, the type-s also has a phenomenal range of decals. Making it an aesthetic masterclass.
That along with a stats that culminate to offer a car fit for the midfield general. With passing and shooting at range being more effective than ever. This car looks great, feels great and in certain playstyles, can be the difference between winning and losing.
