Rocket League Crossover Event: Challenges, Rewards, End Date, More

With the release of Rocket League Sideswipe Season 4, a new Crossover event offers up free rewards in the mobile and mainline games.

After a slight delay, Rocket League Sideswipe Season 4 has arrived, bringing a magical fantasy theme to proceedings with a Rocket Pass of new cosmetics, a brand new Arena, and a player-voted Mutator game mode.

Also on offer is the Rocket League Crossover event which is designed to bring Rocket League players to Sideswipe with a series of cosmetic rewards on offer for both games by completing challenges in Sideswipe.

The mode is limited-time, so if you want to get some free rewards in both titles then keep reading as we breakdown everything you need to know.

Rocket League Crossover Event - Challenges And Rewards

There are five challenges to complete and five rewards to earn in the Rocket League Crossover event. All the challenges are completed in Sideswipe with only one reward on offer for Rocket League. If you don't play Rocket League, you can still unlock the rewards in Sideswipe.

The most eye-catching reward is Calculated Goal Explosion which, once you complete its associated challenge, will be available to you in both Sideswipe and Rocket League.

Other rewards include 300 SP ( in-game currency), a Calculated Avatar, and a Bronze Crate.

The challenges and the rewards they offer are as follows:

  • Complete 5 Online Matches (500 XP)
  • Get 15 Saves in Online Matches (300 SP)
  • Score 30 Goals in Online Matches (Bronze Crate)
  • Earn 5 MVPs in Online Matches (Calculated Avatar)
  • Win 20 Online Matches (Calculated Goal Explosion) - Unlocks in both Rocket League and Sideswipe

Remember, you have just two short weeks to complete these challenges, and while they are relatively easy, ones like five MVPs and 30 Goals will take a certain amount of time no matter what level you are at. It is also worth noting that these challenges can be completed in any game mode - as long as they are multiplayer games against other real-world players aka online matches.
