Best decals in Rocket League, ranked

In most matches, you’ll simply wait for your moment to pop and take over the game. Considering bubbles also tend to pop in most cases, they can be an excellent way of showing that you may start playing the match of your life at any moment.

The animation on the Bubbly decal is also top-notch, and you can create wonderful combinations by playing around with its color palette.

Heatwave

Heatwave is a decal that will set your car on fire. Not literally, of course. The flames draw less in Heatwave aren’t enormous and scorching like some other Rocket League flame decals, but that’s one of the appealing parts.

It’s a more muted take on fire for those who don’t want a loud and busy decal. It’s also one of the oldest animated decals in Rocket League. This means it’s also one of the rarer ones in the game, making it a rather costly purchase.

Chameleon

Chameleon is the go-to decal for stealthy players. It has a camouflage effect and it actively alters its colors based on where you’re on the field. If you’re climbing toward the upper side of the pitch, your car will start morphing into a blue-ish color.

While you won’t completely disappear, this decal can technically make it tougher for your enemies to notice you in the most hectic moments.

Rizer

If you can’t outplay your opponents, you may try to hypnotize them. You may start feeling slightly dizzy as you continue to look at the Rizer decal due to its smooth animation style.

Rizer has one of the most animated decals in the game, which might turn some players off. However, it’s definitely a fan favorite thanks to the fact that it’s also a versatile decal that looks good with just about every possible color combination.

Dissolver

Dissolver’s smooth animation makes it a perfect choice for players who are looking for a decal that flies under the radar.

Interstellar

Interstellar is a rather controversial decal in the Rocket League community. While some players don’t like the level of detail on the decal due to how distracting it can be, there will be players who absolutely love having the galaxy float around on their car.

With different colors, this decal can make your car pop, and you’ll technically be a star on the field since there will be countless of them floating around on your car.

Mainframe
