Since Psyonix has opened up Rocket League’s borders to real trading, business has been booming for the Football/Car hybrid game, with a market matching the likes of other games with trading like CS:GO and Dota 2. As with every competitive game with a loot and trading system, people are always clamoring for the best-looking stuff that money can buy. Does it affect your game? Not really; people just want to look fancy.
Even if you aren’t the sort to fawn of aesthetics, you can use your love of the game to make some big cash by obtaining crazy rare items. People will pay top dollar for extremely rare Rocket League items, and it’s time for you to try and cash in. Listed below are some of the most expensive Rocket League items in history.
Rocket League Trading: The Most Costly Items
- Black and Whitezomba Wheels: it’s tough to get lucky with crates, but when you do, it pays for itself. In fact, these wheels are worth 29 to 50 keys or roughly a 50 dollar average when converted. It’s not mind-blowingly expensive, but hey, 50 smackers get you a new game. It’s hardly a price to laugh at. Why are these so expensive? Well, they look good; as it is with all the items in this list. The White Zomba wheels, however, may be slightly more expensive compared to its black counterpart, for some reason, it drops less from crates.
- Crimson Lightning Wheels: going for 50 to 60 keys on average, they keep going up every time you look at the market. It’s just a fancy set of wheels that you’d simply die for. Along with the detail, superb finish, and sleek design, it’s quite difficult to ignore the beauty of these wheels.
- Striker Crimson Lighting Wheels: a variant of the above and has one of the highest certifications you can get. It’s similar to its simpler predecessor, but with fancier detail. Getting these wheels will set you back at about 120 keys or two sets of the normal Crimson Lightning Wheels. Watch out, however, as the crates get retired, and so will these items and they’ll only get more expensive. It might be wise to hold on to these items to find better prices for them before selling.
- Alpha Hat: the ultimate swag in games is items you can never get again for free. The Alpha Hat is one item that was only available for players who participated in the Alpha testing phase of Rocket League. If you’re one of those first players on Rocket League, you may already be sitting on a goldmine because the price for these hats may have already increased by the time you’re reading this article! Instant keys for an item you didn’t even earn!
- Alpha Gold Rush Boost: another Alpha item that’s worth 700 to 790 keys, making it roughly the equivalent of one thousand dollars depending on the key to dollar conversion. Unlike the Alpha Hat that simply requires you to participate in the Alpha, this specific boost makes players send a bunch of invites for Rocket League to their friends that they would then have to accept. Lots of gamers in this modern age hardly care for social interaction, so you can imagine how small some players were able to get this boost, making it even rarer.
- Goldstone Wheels: another alpha item worth around 730 to 810 keys that require more invites than the boost, at least, as far as we’ve been told. Gold is swag, and you can’t get anything more swag than Goldstone wheels!
- White Hat: perhaps the rarest of all Rocket League items, which is worth at least 3k keys and that’s being generous. There is no real way to obtain this hat via crates, and people who have found and reported game-breaking bugs to Psyonix. Considering all that, you can imagine how few of these hats exist within the Rocket League community.
The first person to ever get this hat reported an extremely game-breaking bug, which would have allowed him to change anybody’s level at any point in time. Instead of abusing the bug, he hid it from everyone else and reported it immediately to the developers in hopes of keeping his favorite game clean and fun. While Psyonix wanted to pay him monetary compensation for his honesty, he declined, and instead, created the unique white hat we know today, worth 6k to 10k dollars. Don’t ever let anybody tell you that last folks finish last!
