What is Rocket Labs in Rocket League? Rocket League veterans will know that the game has included many limited-time modes over the past five years, allowing and challenging players to go beyond what they thought was possible. Different maps, game types, and mechanics are constantly evolving, and Rocket Labs is the perfect arena to push yourself even further.

What is Rocket Labs in Rocket League?

Rocket Labs is a limited-time mode that will continue to be added periodically. The game mode primarily features new map concepts, and new map concepts only. Unlike other limited-time modes that feature new "balls" or special abilities, Rocket Labs takes different concepts from existing real life designs and makes them into Rocket League maps.

One such map that many players remember is the Galleon inspired map, which included drivable areas above, behind and inclined in correspondence to the goals' positions.

Galleon was just the beginning of Rocket Lab's innovative experience. More maps and mutators will be incorporated as time goes on. Currently, a map that is available in Rocket Labs is a narrow field with two additional full-boost pads on each side of the field. Players will have an easier time getting the ball off the wall on this map, so if it's a mechanic you're looking to practice in game this is the time to do so.
