What is Paladin in Rocket League
Paladin is a car model present within Rocket League. This car was released in July 2015 and is not immediately available to players right away. To unlock this model, you’ll have to complete a few matches.
The design of the car is instantly recognizable and wonderfully unique. Taking the aesthetic of a formula one car or a vehicle you might find in the Trackmania series. This design achieves a refined and sophisticated look perfect for any player looking to cruise around the pitch in style.
The paladin runs off a hitbox and stat assortment that belongs to the plank body type. This is due to the low and flat design of the model. Here’s a quick rundown of the stats for this one:
- Length – 128,82
- Width – 84,67
- Height – 29,39
- Surface area – 34.365
- 0% Boosting – 2,342
- 100% Boosting – 2,014
- Turning average – 2,25
What these stats indicate in terms of playability for this body type is that this vehicle offers certain pros and cons. The pros to expect are a superior shot power to most other types. Plus an aerial dribbling ability that is unmatched.
However, for these attributes, the player is likely to lose a lot of 50-50 challenges due to the low frame and this model is prone to a more common near miss or misplaced pass/shot. Overall, this model is not for a casual player, it takes time and practice to get good with this one. However, when the player truly understands this model’s potential, the rewards are plentiful.

Best Paladin Designs
Now we have the long-bodied vehicle, the paladin. This one uses a mesh of royal purple and clean white accents, coupled with a shaperacer decal to give a sharp, geometric design that looks really great.

- Body: Paladin
- Wheels: Reaper (painted orange)
- Boost: Hexphase (painted orange)
