Roadhog

What is Roadhog in Rocket League?

This is a car model that is present in Rocket League. The car was released in July 2015 and is one of the four cars available to the player straight away upon starting the game.

This car is based loosely on Real-life monster trucks that you’ll commonly find frequenting destruction derbies and the like. The hulking frame, obnoxiously big exhaust pipes and mufflers. Plus an exposed rear engine in the design all culminates to give a really strong resemblance to the real-life inspiration. It’s a badass car.

Car Statistics

The roadhog model runs off an Octane body type hitbox and statistics. Therefore making it one of the most well rounded and tightly controlled performance vehicles on the roster. Here is the stats for Roadhog:

  • LENGTH: 118,01
  • WIDTH: 84,20

  • SURFACE AREA: 34.495
  • TURNING AVERAGE: 2,18
  • 0% BOOST SPEED: 2,323

The octane body type offers a great starting point for all newbies to Rocket League. Whilst still giving a comprehensive and well-rounded set of attributes fit for the professional scene as well. Through these stats, the player will see a number of benefits to their play.

One will be down to the octane body’s insane tight dribbling abilities. It’s also quick off the ground to win aerial duels. Not to mention that it’s shot power and accuracy is great although not as fantastic as some more rugged body types. Overall, it’s for more quick and fast thinking players. Perfect for goalkeepers who need fast reactions or strikers looking to bounce on a loose ball or beat a defender.
