Spinning, or "air-rolling," in Rocket League Sideswipe is a simple task. It consists of players just rolling their cars while in the air.

The move has a lot of practical uses in Sideswipe matches. So, here's how you can spin in Rocket League Sideswipe.

How to Spin in Rocket League Sideswipe

Spinning in Rocket League is easy, since it's really just moving the on-screen joystick around.

To perform a spin, the player has to double tap the direction they want to spin on the virtual joystick and then hold it there while in mid-air.

The movement given by spinning is incredibly useful in Sideswipe, whether that's through confusing the enemy long enough to make a goal or the ability to make better air shots.

Many opponents will try to read your plays based on how you're moving, but with a quick air-roll, you'll be able to throw them off and take advantage of the confusion to get a head start in winning the match.

Not only that, but according to multiple sources, spinning in the air tends to make it so the player has a little bit better control, resulting in easier shots.
