Is Rocket League Sideswipe Down: How to Check

While there is no official way to see if Rocket League Sideswipe is down yet, players have found some at-home ways to figure it out.

1. Check if you're connected to Wi-Fi

First, be sure to check and see if you're connected to Wi-Fi.

If you are, that means there's a good chance that it could be a problem with your router.

Testing the router depends on your internet service provider so make sure to look up how to do it on their website.

2. Use a crash detection site

Some websites that people recommend include Is It Down Or Just Me?, Is It Down Right Now?, and DownDetector.

3. Make sure you're running the latest version of Rocket League Sideswipe

When an app is published to the App Store or Google Play Store, they have to go through many updates to keep running correctly on all devices.

To check if an app is fully updated, Android users can go to the Google Play Store, tap on the three lines at the top left to access settings, go to My Apps & Games, then go to Updates.

From there, all updates to your apps should be easily manageable.

For iOS users, you can open the App Store, tap on the Updates tab at the bottom of the page, and then look through the list to see if Rocket League Sideswipe has an update.
