How Many Credits Do You Get In The Rocket Pass? Will You get Your Credits Back In a Season?
The Rocket Pass is a time-limited progression system that players can buy into. Buying the Rocket Pass for Rocket League will let you earn new content in the game which can only be earned in the game if you've paid for the Rocket Pass. However, there are still some items you can find in the game without buying the most recent season pass.
How does the Rocket Pass Works
The Rocket Pass runs alongside the progression system in Rocket League. It uses that system to reward you with a new Rocket Pass tier each time you level up. Going up the tiers will unlock special new items for you which are unique to this season of Rocket League.
Everyone starts at Tier 1 regardless of their overall Rocket League level. To move up through the Tiers, you need to reach a new Rocket League account level. This means if you are level 50 when the Rocket Pass comes out, if you hit level 52 then you will be lvl 2 in the Rocket Pass.
How much does the Premium Rocket Pass Cost?
The Rocket Pass can be bought for 1100 Rocket League credits which are equal to about $9.08 (considering that you can buy 1100 credits for $9.99 USD at the current RL credit prices). It's also possible to buy a Premium Rocket Pass Season Bundle that also unlocks the first 12 Tiers for 2000 Credits.
How Many Credits Do You Get In The Rocket Pass? Do you get your credits back?
You can buy the Rocket Pass once with real money and use it to gain Credits. You earn 900 credits with the Rocket Pass, which isn’t enough to buy one next season.

But no need to spend money every season as there are different ways you can get the 100 rocket league credits for free using several methods. Keep in mind that, if you decide to use your Credits for the Rocket Pass then you'll need to keep saving them and avoid spending them on items in the game.
We made a related post with a more precise analysis of how many tiers the free and the premium rocket pass have.
What's the Difference between the Free and the Premium Rocket Pass?
There is only one Rocket Pass; however, players can pay an additional fee for a chance to unlock more rewards. Staying with the Free Rocket Pass will still let you level up Tiers and unlock new rewards as you do in the premium Rocket Pass.
The Premium Pass is an upgrade to the existing free Rocket Pass. It uses the same tier system as explained above; however, it comes with some bonuses. Buying into this allows you to earn the normal free rewards for each Tier gained but it also gives you the premium rewards for the Tiers. You will also start at Tier 1 like everyone on the Free Rocket Pass.
In short: The Premium Rocket Pass is an upgraded version of the Freebase version that gives you additional rewards.
(Note: If you are lvl 15 with the free pass and buy the regular Premium Rocket Pass, it will give you all premium items up to your current Rocket Pass level, 15. It will do this at any level you are before purchasing the Premium RP.)
All Rocket League players have the chance to complete different challenges as part of the Rocket Pass. There are Weekly and Season challenges attached to the type of Rocket Pass you have access to.
With a free Rocket Pass, you will get three new Weekly Challenges every week to complete; however, the Premium Rocket Pass gives you an additional three each week. Buying the Rocket Pass will also give you twice as many Season Challenges as the free version as well. Completing these challenges will give you rewards such as items, XP and other drops (with the possibility to get Rocket League Black Market Items).
Each new season of Rocket League comes with a brand new Rocket Pass and new Season Challenges too. Completing these free challenges will also give you a Challenges Season Reward giving you the chance of getting a Rare, Very Rare or Import rated Drop Item.
Rocket Pass Seasons
Psyonix will announce the start and end date of the new season but the duration can vary between seasons.
For example, Season 2 started in December 2020 and ended in March 2021 but Season 3 started in March 2021 and ended in August 2021. Seasons can be much shorter or longer than the previous season. However, they usually average around 3 – 5 months per season.
Rocket League will have several Rocket Pass seasons per year. Psyonix estimates that it will take around 60 hours to complete the free version but it could be faster with Double XP weekends and other in-game events. With the additional Premium Rocket Pass content, it could take around many fewer hours to complete with Double Rocket League XP boosts and other boosters.
