Having the best camera settings makes a huge difference to your Rocket League gameplay, so here are the best settings for movement, ball control, and spatial awareness.

Rocket League is one of the biggest free-to-play games out there, with millions of players logging in every day. Cross-play is enabled so there will be tough competition, and you’ll need the best settings to succeed.

Rocket League offers players a ton of customization, but this can be a double-edged sword. Having the wrong settings can make the game unnecessarily difficult, so we’ve got the best Rocket League camera settings based on what the pros use and what works best for us.

  • Camera Shake: Off
  • Field of View: 110
  • Distance: 270
  • Height: 110
  • Angle: -3.0
  • Stiffness: 0.45
  • Swivel Speed: 5.0
  • Transition Speed: 1.2
  • Invert Swivel: Off (personal preference)
  • Ball Camera Mode: Toggle

First thing’s first, you should turn Camera Shake off in Rocket League. This is an unnecessary visual effect that will only be a distraction, so turning it off will make your game as smooth as possible. Plus, make sure you scroll along to the ‘Controls’ tab and ensure Ball Camera Mode is set to Toggle.

Next, you should try turning your Field of View all the way up to 110. This will allow you to see much more of what’s around you, allowing you to keep an eye on both the ball and where the other players are positioned.

The same goes for Distance and Height, setting them to 270 and 110 respectively will allow you to see both your car and the field, offering much more control over the game. And most pros use a Camera Angle somewhere between -3.0 and -5.0, so we recommend starting at -3 and experimenting from there.

Camera Stiffness, Swivel Speed, and Transition Speed are all down to personal preference and won’t have a huge bearing on your gameplay. We recommend putting Stiffness in anywhere from the 0.4 to 0.6 region, Swivel Speed at 5.0, and Transition Speed at 1.2.

Finally, Invert Swivel is completely down to what you’re used to — it will only change the way you move your right stick to move the camera up and down.
