Rocket League Drops

Since moving to the free-to-play model back in 2020, Rocket League has introduced the Drops system to replace the Crate system which was used to acquire cosmetic rewards.

Drops are random loot boxes containing items from all of the Blueprint series, including everything from the Champions 1 Series to the Vindicator Series. The rarity of the Drops ranges from Uncommon to Very Rare Drops and Import Drops.

Drops can be found as Challenge rewards and in the free tiers of Rocket Pass. Drops grant an item of the same rarity as the drop or higher (including Black Market items). You can preview the potential reward’s rarity within the Drop when you inspect it from your inventory.
