Rocket Pass 3 and Weekly Challenges Revealed

Postby Psyonix-Devin on Tue Apr 09, 2019 4:04 pm



With Rocket Pass 3 just around the corner, we wanted to let you know what to expect on April 17. Along with an entirely new line of Free and Premium items unique to this Rocket Pass, Weekly Challenges are also being added to the mix. These Challenges will allow players to Tier Up even faster. Before you eagerly take the field on day one, here is everything you need to know about Rocket Pass 3 and Weekly Challenges.

Are You Up To The Challenge?

Weekly Challenges will go live on the first day of Rocket Pass 3, and will add a new way to climb Tiers. Specifically, Tiers are now gained with a new Rocket League reward system, known as "Tier Points." Tier Points are earned by completing Challenges but they're also earned by gaining XP after Online Matches, similar to how it worked in Rocket Pass 1 and 2.

How does it work together now? Well, in Rocket Pass 3, each Tier requires 10 Tier Points to advance to the next Tier. Challenges will be worth three, five, and eight Tier Points depending on the difficulty of the Challenge. In addition to the Tier Points you gain from completing Weekly ~Challenges, you can also Tier-Up from XP as mentioned above. Every time you gain an XP level, you'll receive 10 Tier Points.

Weekly Challenges must be completed during the week in which they are active. They will expire once new Challenges become active during the following week. Rocket Pass 3 will still track your progress for Premium Weekly Challenges even if you have not purchased Rocket Pass Premium, but you will only receive the Tier Points from Premium Challenges once Rocket Pass Premium has been purchased. If you purchase Rocket Pass Premium late into Rocket Pass 3, you will receive the Tier Points from completed Premium Challenges in expired weeks. However, you will not be able to complete uncompleted Challenges once they expire.

The Challenge list will refresh each Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. PDT (5:00 p.m. UTC) throughout Rocket Pass 3. Check out a sneak peek at the Challenge Menu and the Weekly Challenges from Week 1 in the screenshot below.

All New Items

Rocket Pass 3 will feature 20+ items in the Free track, and 50+ additional items in the Rocket Pass Premium Track, including the all-new Guardian Battle-Car. Plus, there are Decryptors to earn on the Free track and a total of 10 Keys in Rocket Pass Premium.

The Pro Tiers are back! Pro Tiers (i.e. past Tier 70) will grant Painted items from Rocket Pass 3, and will have a chance of being Certified or Special Edition. As always, rewards earned from the Pro Tiers in Rocket Pass 3 are tradable.

Rocket Pass 3 & Challenges At a Glance

If you prefer bullet points, here's the TL;DR version of Rocket Pass 3 and Weekly Challenges:

  • Rocket Pass Premium for Rocket Pass 3 is the same price as previous Rocket Passes (10 Keys).
  • Rocket Pass 3 will have both Free and Premium Tiers, just like Rocket Pass 1 and 2.
  • Rocket Pass 3 will have Weekly Challenges for both Free and Premium tracks.
  • The Free track will have three Weekly Challenges and those with Rocket Pass Premium will get three additional Weekly Challenges.
  • Challenges expire each Wednesday at 10 a.m. PDT (5:00 p.m. UTC) during Rocket Pass 3, and new challenges will become active at that time.
  • Weekly Challenges must be completed within their active week.
  • You cannot go back and complete expired challenges once their week has passed.
  • If you purchase Rocket Pass Premium in a later week during the Rocket Pass 3, you will receive Tier Points for completed Challenges from previous weeks.

Uh oh! Does that challenge say "score 500 points in online matches"?!?!
Please reconsider the challenges as it affects how people choose to play. Designing challenges that incentivize players to play more or less aggressive will destroy online play. Just because it works in fortnite, does not mean it will work in rocket league.

Which is the exact reason Psyonix has always given, when saying they'd never include challenges like this into the game... :roll:

I don't think the 500 points TOTAL, in a week, is going to be a big deal.
How long will it be before we have "destroy 15 cars" and "make 5 turtle goals", when they run out of new challenges to post though?

On the flip side, getting people to use the pre-kickoff chat messages should be a good thing.

Yep, the 500 points are very minor but it opens the door to more extreme challenges like the ones you mentioned.
