What is Alpha Boost in Rocket League? With players across the Rocket League community looking for some of the rarest items in the game, many might come across the mention of the "Alpha Boost." The Alpha Boost is an extremely rare item that very few have and we'll take a look at everything you need to know about it.

To start, Alpha Boost is an item that does not appear in the shop, ever. It is a bright golden boost that appears similar to the default. The reason it's never been in the shop is that Alpha Boost came out when Rocket League was in Alpha Testing. Players who helped to test Rocket League in the PC only version of the game were rewarded with the Alpha Boost. It shows how long a player has been involved with the game, and is a great way to prove that you're OG.

If you wanted to get the Alpha Boost, you would've had to have been one of the players that were asked to test out the game before it was released in July. 2015 in order to smooth out the game. So don't feel like you've missed out on getting your rewards at some point over the past few years.

While you can still try to get your hands on the item, it isn't being reproduced, so it will cost you a pretty penny when it comes to trying to obtain it. Alpha Boost will cost you about 700,000 to 800,000 credits on Rocket League which essentially comes out to about $5,000 dollars. Most people don't have that kind of money laying around. Also, some people who do have it, may not be willing to trade it. Also, as time goes on, Alpha Boost will continue to increase in value.

If you're looking to purchase Alpha Boost from someone else, I wish you good luck. Besides that, maybe try to look for the next rare item as an investment, may Rocket League's Season 2 items will be almost as rare one day, so make sure you complete all your challenges possible.
