What Is Venom In Rocket League?
Venom is a car model present in Rocket League. This car was released in July 2015 and is not immediately available to players right away. You’ll need to play matches to unlock this vehicle.
If the Gizmo somewhat resembles an RC car, the venom takes this one step further. With a sloped design and subtle details like a spoiler and protruding grills at each side. This comes together to offer a micro machine that has a lot to offer. Small but mighty and has a venomous bite.
The Venom model runs with the hitbox and stats of a hybrid body type. This is usually used for cars that aren’t quite an octane class but also not quite a dominus either. Basically, it has no exact match and needs its own personal classification. Here are the stats for the venom.
- Length – 127,02
- Width – 82,19
- Height – 34,16
- Surface area – 34.242
- 0% Boosting – 2,345
- 100% Boosting – 2,014
- Turning average – 2,21
Due to being a mesh of the octane and dominus, this car offers some benefits of the two. The benefits are that you gain a much more powerful shot than the octane, plus aerial dribbling abilities are improved much like the dominus. You also get decent dribbling on the ground with this one like the octane, although not quite as tight as the octane itself.
However, the negatives for this model is the sacrifice in overall maneuverability that you will see. Turning can feel rather labored at times and it will take a good deal of practice to turn those near misses into high-class finishes. This car has its place in competitive games for sure, though it can take a while to get used to.

Best Venom Designs
VenomXX (venom painted titanium white)
This design uses a red and black contrasting color scheme along with the 20XX decal to offer a subtle dynamic flow to the car body. This one also has Sunburst wheels painted titanium white which contrasts against the darker colors and stands out wonderfully.
- Decal: 20XX (primary color: red, accent color: black)
- Wheels: Sunburst (painted titanium white)
- Boost: Standard (painted crimson)
Then this is finished off with the standard crimson boost to give the player a complete design that looks fabulous when put together. So if you like the look of this one, be sure to get the hold of those parts and piece it together for yourself.
At the beach
The next design uses light yellow and blue tones coupled with the dissolver decal to give a finish that looks just like waves slowly rolling onto the sandy shore. This summer vibe is kept alive through the use of aero mage wheels and then a boost trail of tachyon to finish which is painted sky blue.
- Decal: Dissolver (primary color: sky blue, accent color: yellow)
- Wheels: Aero Mage
- Boost: Tachyon (painted sky blue)
This one is perfect for those that long for the warm summer months, sand on toes and a dip in the ocean. Yet you can still be a giant crashing wave on your opponents when in matchups. It can’t all be tranquil, especially not in this game. Be sure to try this one out.
This Venom design is a slick and professional one. Using navy and white as its color scheme and a retro sun decal to offer a design that really hints at the user being a cold and clinical player.
- Decal: Retro Sun (painted titanium white, primary color: dark blue (anodized pearl), accent color: black (matte))
- Wheels: Meridian (painted black)
- Boost: Thermal (painted black)
This one keeps it simple with meridian wheels that are painted black and continue in this manner with a black thermal boost trail. This one is made with the professional in mind that doesn’t want bright colors or dynamic effects. Just a simple, clean and stylish design. If this is your preferred aesthetic, try this one on for size.
Poisonously dull Spider-Man Car
The venom is a small car with the potential to have a big impact in games. With some of the best aspects of both the dominus and the octane body such as shot power and aerial dribbling. This car can be harnessed to win game after game if the player learns its nuances.
Then with excellent decals to personalize the compact design, this car is the full package. Give this one a try and see if it’s the one for you.
