Rocket League’s base game mode can be engaging and fun, but players may need to spice the gameplay up occasionally.

If you’re starting with Rocket League, the game’s pace might be too fast. It’ll start feeling normal and maybe even slower as you get used to Rocket League.

Rocket League’s Boomer mode can spice up anyone’s vehicular life.

The Boomer Mode can be the perfect game mode if you’re looking for more action and speed. Though the name may initially sound odd, it refers to how the ball reacts whenever a player taps it. The ball is lighter and faster in the Boomer Mode, and players can access unlimited speed boosts. 

A lighter and faster ball will be more challenging to control. Precision in your shots will be the most important aspect to watch out for in Boomer Mode since you may not have a second chance at hitting the ball.

Rocket League Boomer Ball Settings

Though there are a few standard settings for the Boomer Mode, you can also tinker around with them to make the game mode feel right just for you. Here are the most popular Boomer Mode settings in Rocket League.

  • Ball speed: Super fast 
  • Ball physics: Super light
  • Ball bounce: Super high 
  • Boost amount: Unlimited 
  • Boost strength: 1.5x
  • Preset Settings: Custom
  • Game Speed: Default
  • Ball Type: Default
  • Gravity: Default
  • Rumble: None
  • Demolish: Default

Occasionally, the Boomer Mode becomes available as a limited-time game mode (LTM). Practicing with your Boomer Mode settings before the mode gets reintroduced as an LTM can be a decent idea since some players have become masters in this mode.

Considering how fast the ball will be, Boomer Mode can also be an excellent way to practice your first touches. It pushes players to make the right decisions since they have no extra time to cover for their mistakes. While it may not mean much, getting better at first touches can allow you to pull off clutch plays in regular games. Dribbling is essential, but no one can catch a ball that was hit at a perfect angle. Try not to get used to the unlimited boosts, though, since you’ll only have so much to work within an actual match.


As stated above, most of the best Boomer Ball settings in Rocket League are subjective and require some tinkering and reworking, but we hope we gave you a solid baseline to hop in and enjoy.
