Rocket League is an item heavy game with plenty of cosmetics to collect through the game. These items aren't really essential to play the game, but they let you personalize and customize your car with different styles and colors. Finding the one you want can be very difficult due to the rarity of the item.

Rarity Types

Rarity can sometimes be listed as “Quality Categories” instead. There are different ways to obtain items in Rocket League. We've included a handy list of rarity types in order and how you get them from the game:

  • Common: Complete offline and online matches
  • Uncommon: Randomly dropped when players level up
  • Limited: Obtained through events
  • Rare: Randomly dropped when players level up
  • Very Rare: Randomly dropped when players level up
  • Import: Obtained by combining five items of the same quality of at least Very Rare value
  • Exotic: Obtained by combining five items of the same quality of at least Very Rare value
  • Black Market: These items are made using Black Market Blueprints. Players need to trade in five Blueprints for one random Blueprint of the next rarity, so you need five Exotic Blueprints to make one Black Market Blueprint. The Black-Market Blueprints cannot be traded and are extremely rare.

Premium items also exist which are special items released for exclusive in-game events or were from the Premium DLC Packs. Those packs were removed from the store with Patch v1.70 but some of the items might be available for sale in the Item Shop in the future. 

As a result, Premium items are very difficult to find and why the most desired ones aren't commonly seen in the game. They also cannot be traded to other players.

Painted Items

They might technically only be 'regular items', painted items can look pretty great and there's a wide range of possible colors. These items will usually have the same rarity as the base item however there are a few exceptions to this rule.

  • Painted Common Toppers are all listed as Uncommon instead
  • Any Painted Common Bodies and Rocket Boosts are Imports
  • The Painted Common Wheels are Exotics (Any obtained before August 3rd, 2017, are Uncommon instead)

There are currently 13 possible colors for painted items. However, not all painted items are available in each color variant. They can be obtained through drops and trades with other players.

These are the Painted Item colors currently in the game:

  • Black
  • Burnt Sienna
  • Cobalt
  • Crimson
  • Forest Green
  • Gray
  • Lime
  • Orange
  • Pink
  • Purple
  • Saffron
  • Sky Blue
  • Titanium White

Certified Items

These are unique items that when equipped during online games record a unique stat exclusive for that item. Certified items can be leveled up by achieving the stat goal being tracked by that item a certain number of times. For example, the Goalkeeper certification tracks goal saves so saving more goals will level it up.

Tag Name Recorded Stat
Acrobat Bicycle Goals
Aviator Aerial Goals
Goalkeeper Saves
Guardian Epic Saves
Juggler Juggles
Paragon MVPS
Playmakers Assists
Scorer Goals
Show-off Backwards Goals
Sniper Long Goals
Striker Shots on Goal
Sweeper Clears
Tactician Centers
Turtle Upside-Down Goals
Victor Wins

Each level (not to be cofounded with your Rocket League Rank) has a different name. 

Level 1 items are “Certified”, Level 2 are “Capable”, Level 3 are “Skillful”, Level 4 are “Veteran” and Level 5 are “Fantastic”. From level 6 onwards the level names aren't as consistent between the certification tags. These types of items can be levelled up to Level 10 and each certification tag will have a unique name for Level 9 and Level 10. 

For example, if you have a striker item and you’ve had 658 shots on net, the item will say “Fantastic Striker”

Why does Rarity matter?

Item Rarity in Rocket League is more important than just bragging rights and looking cooler than the other players in the game. Items of a higher rarity will also have a higher value and price attached to them. Rare items can be difficult to obtain through the game so trading is the fastest way to get them though, this can cost quite a bit.

Drop rates for items can vary quite a bit with rarer items having a lower drop rate. Psyonix revealed the percentage chances of getting different items from drops.

  • Rare Items: 55%
  • Very Rare Items: 28%
  • Import Items: 12%
  • Exotic Items: 4%
  • Black Market Items: 1%

Painted or Certified items have a 25% chance for every drop in addition to the above drop rates.

Rarity is also important for the trade-in system. The system lets you trade in five items of the same rarity to get one randomly drawn item of the next rarity up. Sadly, Common items cannot be used in the trade-in system with the minimum rarity being Uncommon. This is separate from the player-to-player trading systems and is a good way to swap unwanted items for ones of a higher rarity.

Can Items of all Rarities be Traded?

Most Rocket League items can be traded to others regardless of the rarity value. Items purchased from the Item Shop, or the Esport Shop cannot be traded to other players and neither can most Rocket Pass items tiers 1-70. Other items might be listed as untradeable for different reasons, but rarity doesn't make a difference. Rarity values do not stop items from being traded.
