best rocket league camera settings

Rocket League has established itself in one of the most popular and biggest eSports games ever since its release in July 2015. The game was a sequel to a pretty much-known game Supersonic Acrobatic Rocket-Powered Battle-Cars which was released for the PlayStation 3 in 2008.

Despite having a weak launch and getting mixed reviews upon release, the game earned itself a lot of loyal fans, and after 7 years, Psyonix released Rocket League, which quickly become a success due to different and unique marketing by Psynoix, catching the attention of gamers around the world through Twitch and YouTube streams.

The game was released for PlayStation 4 and PC on July 5, 2015, worldwide and released later on other platforms.

In later 2019, Epic Games acquired Psynoix and made Rocket League free-to-play in September 2020. This will allow the game to gain a lot more new players and making it the best time to grind and gain ranks.

Becoming the best player in completive video games is one of the hardest things to do, not only you will have to work hard, and the competition is fierce.

If you are looking to improve your gameplay and skills in Rocket League and want to gain ranks in ranked matches, skill is a big factor, but that is not all.

Having the best camera settings is the second part of the yin and yang that will surely make you a decent player in no time. I have put a lot of research into this article and put together data that will help you in becoming a great Rocket league player.

It is hard to say very quickly, but with the right dedication and enough practice, everything is possible. The game-winning factors are decided into split seconds decisions. A one-second delay could lead your team to defeat and vice versa.

Having the best camera angles will come into play. You can easily bait your enemies into a trap if you know your surroundings well and when there is nothing in your way, head over to that goal and carry your team to victory.

Follow the guide carefully to decide which camera settings suit your play style the best. For reference, you can compare your settings with professional players’ settings, which I will mention in the article.

What Are The Best Rocket League Camera Settings In 2021?

The settings change from meta to meta, and it is hard to use settings for every patch. Keeping in touch with professional players’ settings is something that you can do from time to time if you aim to excel at this game.

Although becoming a pro is very unlikely, not impossible, but getting the right camera angles will give you an edge during your games which in the end will win you games, and you will gain ranks.

I suggest you should test each setting to your personal preferences instead of binding them exactly like your favorite pro player. You can use their settings as a reference but set the values which make the game comfortable to play.

Without wasting any precious time, let us hop into the article and adjust the Rocket League camera settings to the best values.

Camera Shake

Whenever you decide to head into the options, and under the Camera tab, the first option that you will see is camera shake. It is a feature that is exactly what the name of this feature suggests. The camera shakes whenever a crucial moment happens.

If you are a new player and you want to start with the best settings, you will find this feature by default. This feature is coded into the game to introduce immersion. However, in competitive video games, there should be as few distracting things as possible.

You do not want to lose your opponent’s location just because the camera shakes after you decide to hit the ball, and you end up missing the shot.

Out of all the professional players that play Rocket League, you will not find a single pro using this feature. Almost everyone disables this feature and for their good.

Camera shake does not only make your opponent’s tracking hard, but it also makes the player lost track of things going in the match. You do not want that; you want your full attention on your enemy movements, so turning off the camera switch is a good idea.

Here is how you can switch camera shake:

  • Launch Rocket League and head into the “Options”.
  • Change the “CAMERA PRESET” to “Custom”.
  • Under the Camera tab, find and turn off “CAMERA SHAKE” by unchecking the box.How to change the camera shake settings in Rocket League
  • Save the changes, and you are good to go.

Field of View

Field of view is probably one the most important settings, if not the most important, in the game that you should adjust as per your needs.

If you are on a console, setting high values of FoV may cause the game to lag and FPS drops. Lag and FPS drops are two things that you least want in a competitive game.

FoV is a feature in games that allows more game world to render by the GPU for the screen. The player with high FoV values tends to see more of the game world compared with people playing on lower FoV, which is a clear advantage to PC players over console players.

In Rocket League, high FoV values mean how wide the vision will spread behind your car. If your system is not medium or high budget, make sure not to increase the values to the max, as it may cause FPS drops and lag.

Showing the difference in 90 FOV vs 110

If you are playing at a higher FoV value than your GPU can handle, it might be the one causing the game to crash due to its inability to render such high FoV values, and a weird aspect ratio can also put more strain on the GPU.

Most players like to use the FoV values above 100 and below 110. It depends on each person’s preferences. Some players stress that having too high FoV values can decrease the rocket car precision.

After checking out hundreds of professional players’ settings, any FoV setting in between 100 and 110 will do the job just fine. Which exact value you should use?

You may ask, try adjusting values from 100 to 110. Whichever value suits your personal preferences the most, use them.

You can change the FoV by:

  • Launch Rocket League and head into the “Options”.Image of Rocket League Field Of View Settings
  • Under the Camera tab, find the “FIELD OF VIEW” and adjust the slider between 100 and 110.

Having a higher FoV value allows the player to keep track of their opponents and surrounding without much effort and can easily gain the upper hand on your opponents.

More game screen will allow you to track your enemies’ positions easily, and you can use the knowledge to your maximum advantage.

Camera Distance

Camera distance is the distance between the camera and your car. The higher the values are, the higher the FoV will become, increasing the vision of the game world provides the person with an extra vision of their surroundings.

This extra knowledge can easily give you an edge in your ranked matches.

But, do not go all out with the values. Having too high FoV and Camera Distance values might prove counterproductive and will hurt your precision as the ball and car will appear very small on the screen.

A combination between FoV with a value of 110 and Camera Distance value in between 260 – 280 is considered the best among the pros and high skilled players in Rocket League. Most of the pro players set the Camera Distance value at 270.

Some players even use 300 units value as their Camera Distance in extreme cases. You can try any value between 260 and 300 and set the value which you think is the best. It could be even less than 260 or greater than 280.

FoV and Camera Distance are the deciding factors that can either enhance your gameplay or will ruin it; there is no in-between. If you decide to start from 260, and you believe you can increase the distance without having any issues, keep increasing the value.

  • Head over to Options, and under “CAMERA”, adjust the slider of “DISTANCE” to your desired value.
Image of Rocket League Distance Settings

Now, when you start to face difficulty judging the distance between the ball and your car, it means the value should be decreased to a lower value.

The other options are not exactly as important as their two, but we are going to explore each option in-depth so that you will get the best out of the camera settings and lay ruin to your enemies in your ranked matches.

Camera Height

As the title suggests, the camera height adjusts the camera above your car. Lower values will make the camera closer to the ground. The higher the value is, the higher the camera will be from the ground.

Setting the value too low will prevent you from tracking the ball accurately as the car, and more ground vision will hinder the vision making it a difficult task to make it to the goal.

Setting the value too high might make it easier for you to track your surrounding, but you might lose control of your car’s precision.

Most professional players use the camera height between 90 and 110. Feel free to experiment with the default values and check which enhances your gameplay the most. You can also try using values higher than 110 units to check what kind of you issues you may face.

  • Head over to Options, and under “CAMERA”, adjust the slider of “HEIGHT” to your desired value.

Camera Angle

The camera angle is one of the settings that you can experiment with. By default, the value of the camera angle is -3°. Most professional players set the value for Camera Angle in between -4-5°. Some even use -2°, and some even use 5°.

Ideally, you can leave the value as it is. Setting the value too high will cause the angle to focus on your car more than its surroundings, but again, if you prefer it to be that way, there is no harm in using higher or lower values.

The camera angles in between -4-5° are considered the better values for competitive gameplay.

You can adjust the camera angle by going to:

  • Go to Options, and under the Camera tab, find the “ANGLE” and adjust the slider to your desired values.
Image of Rocket League Angle Settings

The reason almost everyone uses the camera angles in negative digits is that it makes it easier to spot an opponent in front of your ball, making dribbling a lot more fun to do.

By using the recommended settings, you will be surprised by your opponents out of the blue.

You will have a better chance of dribbling your enemies with negative camera values. If you decide to set the value to positive units, it will point the camera more to the sky, which makes your car block your vision, and it will ruin the gameplay.

Camera Stiffness

This setting can get tricky to adjust if you have little to no clue about what it does. Camera stiffness offers how strictly the camera will follow your car after your car uses its rocket to gain more speed.

During the boost, the camera will become further away from the car and will return to normal as soon as the car gets back to the normal speed. It also affects camera following while you turn at your current or boosted speed.

The higher camera stiffness values make the camera strictly follow your car, and no adjustments will be made to the car during normal or super high speed.

High speed sounds the way to go but, after using high stiffness values, you will face difficulties in checking your surroundings as accurately compared to the lower stiffness values.

Lower stiffness values will make the camera take some time to adjust to get back to the original position. Using lower stiffness also provides a higher FoV that you utilize to your advantage to check the position of your opponents.

However, lower camera stiffness values might highly affect the precision of your car. By default, the value is set at 0 units.

These are the settings that differ the most from pro to pro. Some use camera stiffness values around 0.60 – 0.30. The ideal range that you can set these values is 0.20 – 0.70.

  • Go to Options, and under the Camera tab, find and adjust the “STIFFNESS” slider to your desired value.

Swivel Speed

The camera swivel speed affects the camera speed and how quickly it turns when you manually rotate the camera from your controller or mouse.

A higher swivel speed will make the camera turn very quickly, and similarly, slower values will make the camera turn at a much slower speed.

This is a setting that you should set according to your needs. A higher swivel speed value is not recommended as it will turn the camera at a faster pace but, it will be impossible to keep track of your surrounding as the camera rotates.

The default value of this setting is 2.5. You can either leave it be, or experiment with the value to your needs. You can experiment in between 1.0 to 10.0. The ideal range is from 2.5 – 8. Some use the default value; some go to higher speeds such as 10.0.

  • Go to Options, and under the Camera tab, find and adjust the “SWIVEL SPEED” slider to your desired value.
Image of Rocket League Swivel Speed Option

Transition Speed

As the name suggests, transition speed is the speed at which the camera switches from car cam to ball cam. You will be switching from one cam to the other quite a lot during your matches.

A higher transition speed means the camera transition between the ball and the car is almost instant.

Some people do not like the instant snap and, they adjust the transition value, not to a very high value. In the end, this setting also depends on personal preference. You can experiment with different values to check which values suit you the most.

A lower value might take the camera to take too much time to get back to your car, which can easily ruin a great opportunity of winning the match. The majority of the pro players use the value between 1 – 1.60 on average. Some even go up to 1.90.

You can adjust the camera transition speed by:

  • Head over to Options, and under the Camera tab, find and adjust the “TRANSITION SPEED” slider to your desired value.
Image of Rocket League Transition Speed Settings

Ball Cam

Ball cam is the camera that follows the ball during the match. Psyonix has introduced this feature, adding more depth to the game and making the game much more fun and interesting to play.

Activating the ball cam will make the transition between your car and ball, and the camera will keep following the ball until you switch the camera back to your car manually.

You have only two options when it comes to ball cam. You can either use the toggle or hold option. If you use the ball cam with the hold option, just like the push-to-talk feature that work in many games, this is the same.

The key bind that you have chosen for the ball cam hold, after pressing the button on your keyboard your controller, you will be able to transition between the ball cam and free cam till the duration you keep holding the key bind.

As soon as you will release the key, the camera will focus back on your car. Toggle, on the other hand, works like toggling Aim Down the Sight feature in first-person shooter games. You will have to press the key every time you want to change the camera perspective.

Most people use toggle, however, feel free to experiment and choose from toggle or hold. It is a good idea to use a toggle as you will not have to keep holding the button to focus on the ball cam when you are making hard maneuvers.

You should at least try both options once to check which are suited best to your gameplay. Almost all professional players use toggles.

Free Cam

The last option in our article is whether you should use the free cam option or not. It is up to personal preference. Rocket League is one of the few games where you cannot use free cam with your mouse.

Weirdly enough, you can use free cam if you are playing on a controller using the left analog stick or arrow keys on your keyboard.

If you are playing Rocket League for the first time, no need to panic. The game is playable without free cam. It might take a while to get used to it.

If you are new to the game, this article will help you a lot in setting up the camera settings, which is one of the most important factors in Rocket League. It is fine to follow pro players’ settings, but it is highly recommended to experiment with the settings.

People play with the settings in which they are most comfortable. You can use this article as a reference and can set the values after experimenting with exhibition matches. Change any settings which hinder your gameplay even if the majority of the people use those settings.

Best Rocket League Camera Settings (October 2021)

Rocket League camera settings can make or break your gameplay. You can dramatically improve your gameplay by selecting the right settings. Similarly, having the wrong settings can hold you back. To have success in the game, having skills is not enough. Other factors such as camera settings are equally important in Rocket League!

Best Rocket League Camera Settings

Best Rocket League Camera Settings

Field of View: 110%

With a FOV of 110, you see more of the field and have a better view. By getting to know your surroundings better, you’re able to plan your movements more effectively.

Distance: 280

Most players keep this at 220 or 330. Ultimately, 220 is too close to where you are standing, limiting your movement and visibility. 330 is far away and much harder to control. The 260 is the perfect distance view and helps you navigate more efficiently.

Height: 110

There isn’t much of a difference, though most professional players use it at 110 and it seems to work fine.

Angle: -4

Most of the time, this is a personal choice, but too much or too little can impact the overall look of your game. Pro players usually set it to -4.

Stiffness: 1.00

Honestly, this depends entirely on personal taste as well. We recommend you play 1.00 until you find the best one, but you need to play enough to find it.

Swivel Speed: 2.50

This shows the speed at which the camera rotates as we move around. Setting it to 2.50 will allow you to see the surroundings while also moving fast enough.

Transition Speed: 1.10

With 1.10 you can fluidly switch to ball cam without any problems.

Invert Swivel: On

Rocket League: Best Camera Settings

Rocket League continues to balloon into the mainstream with its free-to-play release. The game is enjoying a surge in popularity, both in terms of player numbers and esports viewership.

Rocket League is a game packed with skill, strategy, and complexity, yet is unique. You’d be hard-pressed to find a game with transferable skills that could help you in this original, distinctive blend of soccer and cars.

If you’re looking for ways to improve your performance in Rocket League’s unique playing environment, having Rocket League best camera settings is a great place to start. 

Rocket League Best Camera Settings options

Rocket League: Best Camera Settings

While the default controls aren’t unplayable in Rocket League, numerous camera settings can affect your playing experience, and all pro players tweak them to some extent. Some minor and aesthetic changes depend on individual taste, while others are universally agreed to be better for competitive play. 

Camera Shake

One of the most infamous Rocket League camera settings is Camera Shake. This cosmetic setting produces a screen rocking animation when you flip, jump or get bumped. This can be a cool, immersive setting for new players that adds to Rocket League’s exciting atmosphere.

But as most players start to improve, they typically find Camera Shake gets in the way of their concentration and ability to focus on the ball. As you rank up and your games become faster and faster-paced, turning this setting off is a sure-fire way to make your gameplay feel smoother and easier to follow.

FOV, Distance and Swivel Speed

The Field of View (FOV) setting, put simply, controls how much of the pitch and your car you can see. Low settings will zoom in over your roof for a narrower look at the field, while higher settings will show a wider view.

The Distance setting controls how far your camera is placed behind your car, while Height similarly determines the camera’s height above the car. The Angle, meanwhile, affects the angle at which the camera points down.

Swivel Speed controls how quickly the camera pans around you, which is useful if you feel discomfort or disorientation when the ball bangs off-screen quickly. And Transition Speed affects how quickly the camera swivels when transitioning between turning Ball Cam mode on and off.

Rocket League Pro Player Camera Settings

While all of these settings are subjective and ultimately depend on individual preference, pro players tend toward a particular setting. We’ve hand-compiled a list of the settings used by 30 of the best in the business so you can compare and choose your favorites:

Rocket League Pro Players Settings – Best Settings Possible!

Competitive Rocket League players tweak their camera settings like there was no tomorrow. Whether it be adjusting your swivel speed to having to change your height by a couple of centimeters, the feel of the car and your settings never feels right. In this guide, we will cover all the beneficial settings, ranging from distance, fov, and any angle needed for every aspiring Rocket League pro player hoping to make it to esports.

Rocket League Pro Camera Settings

Rocket League Camera Settings - Example

Rocket League pros use camera settings to their advantage. If you want to be a pro who dreams to compete in esports, you need to replicate their settings as you deem fit. Before jumping back into competitive, you first need to adjust your Rocket League settings accordingly, ranging from the field of view to the stiffness of your car. A list of these best settings are mainly personal preference, but some of these tips may help you reach the top.

Camera Shake – Off

Camera Shake creates too much disturbance when playing Rocket League. It is mainly used for heightening your experience playing the game, but after further analysis, multiple players’ vision becomes obstructed with it. It’s better to leave this section of settings turned off.

FOV: 105 – 110

Also known as field of view, the numbers for your fov represent the amount of vision you have on the field. The lesser the fov number, the less you can see. However, too high of a fov number and your vision becomes stretched. For enthusiastic Rocket League players, we recommend tweaking your fov every once in a while until you find the right feel.

Distance: 260 – 280

The “distance” in Rocket League serves as the measurement of the distance between the base of your car and the camera. This area of Rocket League camera settings is also a bit confused with height and angle, which is normal It is difficult to estimate which is the most optimal measurement, but choose whichever you feel is going to work well for you. For reference, the average distance Rocket League pros use is 278. If you want to get good at the game, this setting is a definite must-have!

Height: 100 – 110

This section of Rocket League camera settings serves as the measurement of the distance between the roof of your car and the camera. Although you can technically change this distance to as high as possible, your aerial shots will become much more difficult. The same can be said with having a low height, which is why we’ve provided you with a recommended range to use it at. Note that the average height for most players is height 110.

Angle: -3

This section of Rocket League camera settings pertains to the angle at which the camera is viewing your car. Players like Kronovi and Kaydop can hit accurate double touches due to being used to this angle. We recommend keeping this at -3 or above.

Camera Stiffness: .35-.40

The camera stiffness is mainly personal preference and my favorite to debate, but our testers have come to the conclusion that the proper settings for stiffness is between .35-.40. Again, this setting is personal preference so you are free to choose and adjust as accordingly.

Swivel Speed: 5.3

Swivel Speed is the sensitivity of your camera. This can be tested using the right analog stick on your controller. The best setting to keep this at is 5.3.

Transition Speed: 1

Transition Speed is the speed at which your screen transitions from the ball camera to the free-flowing camera. You can change this however you see fit. Your view of the field is not affected if this area of settings is changed.

Invert Swivel: Personal Preference

Invert Swivel depends on how you go about your day. If you tend to invert controls in video games other than Rocket League, then this area of settings should be check marked. Most members of a team have this area of settings turned off.

Rocket League Pro Controller Settings

Rocket League Controller Settings - Example

These controller settings are what really give value to a player’s overall look and texture of their car. Rocket League pros who play in esports and tweak their settings like Kronovi, Turbopolsa, and Kaydop value controller settings very heavily. Below is a detailed list/guide of our recommended Rocket League camera settings.

Steering Sensitivity – 1

Steering Sensitivity is the sensitivity in which you steer your car. If you wish to steer your car with less movement on the sticks, then you should turn this section of settings up. Remember: A greater sensitivity does not make you a better player.

Aerial Sensitivity – 1

Aerial Sensitivity is the sensitivity that controls how sensitive your car is in the air. Watching your favorite youtube stars hit their best shots doesn’t just come from pure skill, but rather from having the right aerial sensitivity. For reference: Back when Flakes was playing competitive Rocket League, his Aerial Sensitivity was at a solid 1.

Controller Deadzone – 0.5

These controller deadzone settings determine how sensitive your analog sticks are. Whether you turn to the left or the right, the speed matters. Before determining this setting, first test out multiple dead zones in free play before you choose your best fit.

Dodge Deadzone – 0.7

Dodge Deadzone is the amount you need to pull the analog stick to complete a dodge. For example, if you were to set this at 0.75, you would have to pull your stick 75% of the way to complete a dodge. We recommend keeping this area of settings at 0.7.

Vibration – Off

Fun fact: Vibration actually makes your control battery life significantly decreased. If vibration is on, every time you boost and make contact with the ball your hands will vibrate. With no benefits to keeping this section of settings on, we recommend turning it off for now.

Ball Camera Mode – Toggle

Ball Camera Mode is only useful in some situations. During the majority of your gameplay, this area within your settings will be turned off, however, the best way to utilize this setting is knowing when to turn it on. Take Turbopolsa for example. In game 7 of the 8th RLCS World Championship against Vitality, Turbo utilized ball cam mode to gain more fov on the field. Due to this, he was able to see and coordinate team plays, which hasn’t been very successful with other professional players.

The BEST Rocket League CAMERA SETTINGS (Pro Settings Guide)

When it comes to having success in Rocket League your mechanical gameplay skills are only one part that actually matters. You should also customize your camera settings in order to succeed. has the guide for you.

But first: Why should you change the camera settings at all? Aren’t they fine the way they are? Well…. yes… and no. The default settings are fine if you want to learn Rocket League. But as your overall gameplay improves you will realize that they sometimes lack the overview you need to make the best decision in every moment of the game. Fortunately Psyonix implemented the possibility to customize the camera settings in various ways. Just go to your Options menu and select Camera. There you can play around with things like Angle, Distance, Stiffness and change the way you look at your car.

Here’s what the default camera settings look like:

Rocket League Camera Default

This is what every player sees once he starts Rocket League

What do the different settings mean?

So, what are recommended settings? If you browse through data bases such as Liquipedia you’ll notice that every player has his own settings, but there are lots of similarities between their settings. Let’s take a look at the settings most pro players change.

Camera Shake: This feature is by default active and creates an action-filled atmosphere while playing Rocket League. Well… you should turn it off… forever! There’s not a single pro in the RLCS that actually uses the camera shake that occurs for example during collisions. It is distracting from the gameplay and leads to you lacking precision.

The two most important settings are FOV (field of view) and Distance. FOV dictates how wide your field of view on the pitch is. If you increase the number you will see more of the field, but some players feel that your car precision will suffer if you stress it too much. Most players prefer a FOV of at least 100, many even going all the way up to 110. See if this works for you.

Rocket League Camera Settings Field of View (FOV)

This picture shows how much the FOV setting changes your perspective. Left is the standard setting, on the right is the maximum setting of 110 that most pros use to see more of the pitch.

Distance sets the distance of the camera behind your car. Increasing this number results in an even bigger field of view, because you will also be able to see more of the room right behind your car. Dribblings and controlling the ball in general might get too difficult, once you went all out. So choose carefully. Most players are fine with a distance of around 260, but if you can manage it you could actually try to go head to head with the pros who use settings around 300, in some extreme cases even 320. On average the pros usually go for a distance of 280.

Rocket League Camera Settings Distance

Again: On the left are the default settings, but if you push the distance up to for example 320 you see a lot more what’s happening behind your car.

The other settings aren’t as impactful as these two. However, here are some explanations and recommendations:

Camera Height: How high do you want to locate the camera above your car? The default value is 100 and there are many pro players who stick with it, although most increase it slightly, maybe to 110 or 120.

Rocket League Camera Settings Height

Increasing the Camera Height influences significantly your perspective. On the right the Height is turned up to 120.

Camera Angle: At what angle is the camera facing your car? By default it’s -3 degrees and you should probably stick to that. However, if you feel adventurous try different settings. Some pro players go for -5.

Rocket League Camera Settings Camera Angle

The Camera Angle changes the angle from which you look onto your car. Left is the default view which most pros also stick to. On the right you see how much it changes if you go for something like -10.

Camera Stiffness: How stiff does the camera remain? Usually it’s 0 and again: This is just fine, as the camera will smoothly turn whenever your car does, but the pros often go for different settings, even up to 1.0 at which point the camera remains completely stiff and locked in on your car

Camera Swivel Speed: This affects how fast the camera will turn if your car does. For this option there simply are no recommendations. The default value of 2.5 seems fine, but pros choose everything from 1.0 to 10.0. Just feel free to experiment or even leave it alone.

Camera settings of 6 pros

Maybe it is unnecessary to emphasize this, however: What works for the pros might not necessarily work for you. So don’t take these settings as a guarantee for an improved win rate. In fact, it is quite possible that you will at first feel quite uncomfortable with these new settings because you played Rocket League for hours on end with your old settings. So take your time to adjust and then go out rocking Rocket League with these pro settings.

Here are five settings of top players of the RLCS. Try them out to give yourself the edge over your opponent:

Bluey (PSG eSports)

Bluey’s camera settings aren’t that unusual. He goes for a bit of more Height and has a comparably shorter Distance. This is how his settings are and how they look in-game:

Rocket League Camera Settings Bluey

Bluey’s settings: FOV: 110; Height: 110; Angle: -3.0; Distance: 240; Stiffness: 0.10; Swivel: 7.0; Transition: 1.00

Fairy Peak (Vitality)

Fairy Peak is considered by some to be the best player in the world. Noteworthy in his settings: He turns the Camera Swivel Speed all the way up to 10.

Fairy Peak’s settings: FOV: 110; Height: 100; Angle: -3.0; Distance: 270; Stiffness: 0.35; Swivel: 10.0; Transition: 1.00

Jacob’ssettings: FOV: 100; Height: 120; Angle: -4.0; Distance: 300; Stiffness: 0.65; Swivel: 6.0; Transition: 1.00

Maestro (Fnatic)

Fnatic’s Maestro is notorious for really increasing the Camera Distance. He currently plays with a Distance of 320, which is way more than most other pros do. His Camera Angle of -6 is also highly unusual if you compare it to most other pro-players.

Rocket League Camera Settings Maestro

Maestsro’s settings: FOV: 101; Height: 110; Angle: -6.0; Distance: 320; Stiffness: 0.40; Swivel: 5.0; Transition: 1.00

It’s a game that revolves around gaming skills, game mechanics, spatial awareness and camera settings. While the first three are difficult to master for the casual Rocket League player, getting the best Rocket League camera settings for yourself will certainly polish your experience.

What are the best RL Camera Settings for you?

Best Camera Setting for Rocket League players

Do remember, there is a baseline almost agreed upon settings that most pro players use, as you will read below. Before all that, lets go over each setting and see what they do.

Camera Shake

Great for giving you the immersive experience of performing summersaults with your vehicle. However, frankly having camera shake enabled just gets in the way and plausibly gives you nausea over extended periods. Most best camera setting for Rocket League pros had it disabled for good reasons, and you should too.

Alternatively, if you still want that extra spark of excitement in your game, especially when scoring a goal. Consider using Rocket League goal explosions as a flashy alternative to narrate your victory.

Camera Stiffness

In layman’s terms, it’s how sensitive you want your camera to move when maneuvering your vehicle. Contrary to popular belief, camera stiffness doesn’t affect your reaction time, nor does it escalates your speed.

Nevertheless, a reliable method to determine the right stiffness would be to adjust it according to your mouse sensitivity.

Field of View (FOV)

Customizing your FOV is relatively straightforward, whereby you want to have a wide enough view of the arena. We highly recommend maxing it out just to fully utilize that screen real estate. Sure, the wider FOV may put a strain on your eyes, so it’s best to fix your FOV before starting your journey to become one of the best Rocket League players.

Speaking of the devil, most pro Rocket League players have their FOV set to 110, or at least 108.

Distance (from your vehicle)

The Distance option located at the Camera setting Rocket League menu works cohesively with FOV. It is the distance between your screen and the vehicle.

Hence, unlike FOV which is relatively neutral, an uncalibrated Distance can affect your gameplay drastically. For instance, you may miscalculate the ball distance or even the arena blueprint, causing you to miss the best goals in Rocket League.

Distance is one of the few camera setting Rocket League uses, that has an optimal amount of 270 or 280. All the pros have this setting, with the oddball being, Jack “FlamE” Pearton, with a lower 230 distance.

Nevertheless, the ideal Distance puts your vehicle at an estimated distance of one meter, making it feel much more realistic. There’s also the least-spoken Camera Height settings, which you can maintain as default or higher. It’s the height between your screen and vehicle, so logically, you do not want to have this too short to the point where your vehicle is hindering your POV.

Swivel Speed

On the other hand, Swivel Speed is all about preferences. Where the higher your Swivel Speed, the more angle your vehicle rotates when it spins. Again, if you aren’t comfortable with having your controls swivel excessively, you would benefit more from less Swivel Speed.

Now, don’t get us wrong, having lower Swivel Speed doesn’t make you an amateur Rocket League player. The Swivel Speed option in the camera setting Rocket League pro players use, ranges from 1.80 to 10.0 ms.

Rocket League Pro Player Camera Settings

Rocket League included camera settings preset, which offers a variety of pro player camera settings. While this may sound too good to be true, it’s not advisable to just slap on your favorite pro player’s Rocket League camera setting and expect it to work like a charm.
