I'm glad more people know about this, I don't use Playstation controllers but the issue is the same with Xbox One controllers as well and a few 360 controllers. I don't play Rocket League either haha, I actually found about the issue when playing GTA V on PC, and I noticed that I could spin faster on a bike after switching from my Xbox One controller to my 360 controller. If anyone has any information on how to edit the settings for the Xbox One controller to make the range higher I'd really appreciate, because my only option is to use other controllers.

Anyways hopefully I can help you guys out a bit who are looking for a better controller, I've bought both of these 360 controllers and I've noticed the range of motion is a lot higher than the PS4/XB1 controllers. For some reason it seems like 3rd party controllers have a higher range of motion.

Xbox 360 Afterglow Controller

Xbox 360 MadCatz Pro

The Afterglow Controller I have has a higher range than the Madcatz controller but the Madcatz controller is still pretty high. Also keep in mind I've had the Afterglow for about 5 years now, so I doubt they would have made any design changes to mess with the range but it's always possible.

One more thing, I don't really expect an answer from this but does anyone know anything about this controller? I've been wondering how the range is compared to the original Xbox One controller.

If you're looking into getting a 144hz monitor, you first need to make sure your machine can output fps higher than 144 consistently at the graphic settings you play at. You can turn on a fps counter in Steam. Make sure the fps isn't limited in Rocket League settings.

Most 144hz monitors cost +$200. You also can't use HDMI to take advantage of the higher refresh rate, you would need a DisplayPort cable or DVI cable. A few possibilities you can check out are below:

Then make sure your display adapter properties enables the higher refresh rate on your new monitor. Test the refresh rate at

Although 75hz seems pretty good at the moment. I don't know if you really need to upgrade now, but if you have the extra cash lying around that's up to you.

If you're talking about a general upgrade to improve fps or to play on higher settings, then you probably want to invest into a better graphics card. Look into a gtx 970 or gtx 1060 (or if AMD rx 480 or rx 580). A 1070 or 1080 is probably overkill for 1080p gaming. Those graphic cards have the power to support higher monitor resolutions like 4K. I would ask your friend for advice first since he's the person that made the computer for you so they know what's compatible and what's best for your build.

I feel like in order to play on a 144hz monitor at least on max settings with Rocket League you would at least need at gtx 1060. Your gtx 560 probably isn't powerful enough to utilize a higher refresh rate monitor like 144hz.

Also make sure your power supply unit has enough wattage to power all your new upgrades. You seriously don't want to skimp out on a cheap PSU because those can blow up and cause fires destroying your PC (or worse your house).

Overall you're probably looking at $300-500 if you're going to buy a new graphics card with a 144hz monitor, depending on if you can find good deals or if you buy new.

u/Rosettachamps · 1 pointr/RocketLeague
Good ol' reliable 360 controller thats relatively cheap. If you care about your performance in the game, and want to win and improve as much as you can i would switch. But if this is just to play with friends a couple hours a week and not be competitive (by that i mean wanting to win and improve, not necessarily tournaments etc) youre probably fine on keyboard

u/Reprivation · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

Idk what is required to run it smoothly but any pc that costs more than 600 should be able to do it amazingly 😂. Don't actually go that high, look around but that's my advice

Also when buying a monitor, this one is 75 Hz and is the best bang for your buck! Makes playing on my xbox feel ALMOST identical to playing on my 1300 ASUS laptop!

If input lag is your issue make sure you have v sync turned off as well. I used to play on a t.v. with 40-50 ms+ of input lag. This monitor minimizes it to less than 10 which is rated as basically the best you can get


u/RL_bebisher · 489 pointsr/RocketLeague

It's God awful lol. I use a HDMI splitter and play on a 4k tv. I use the projector primary for editing and watching RLCS, or as a second screen for my friends to play on when they come over.

Edit 1: Wow! Thanks for the Gold kind stranger!

...And Silver

...Another Gold! You guys are making my night! Thank you!

...Holy smokes! Another Gold! Thank you!!!

...4 Golds!!! No Way!!!

Edit 2: Here's a link to the RC Rivals Series Set on Amazon:

And here's the App that controls it:

u/Tsasuki · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

Definitely get a controller!

1v1 is best if you want to practice pure ball-control, a mistake will mean a goal for the enemy 8/10 times, because you don't have a teammate to cover your ass. This mode is all about having control over both the ball and your car.

2v2 is in my opinion the most fun mode. It is very fast paced and you will have to balance offence and defense very well.

3v3 is all about team play, and it can be hard to score goals because there will usually be at least 1 player on defense. Learn about rotations!

4v4 is a mess and you should only play it when you are drunk and with 3 friends.

Also check out some of the helpful youtube channels:

  • Gibbs: High ranked player that explains his every move, very nice channel to learn about the thought-process during play
  • SquishyMuffinz : Some more advanced tutorials
  • Jhzer : Another user with some more advanced tutorials
  • Low5ive: Has a "from noob to not" video series
  • SubParButInHD: Another channel that has some beginner tutorials
u/TinyTimothy22 · 5 pointsr/RocketLeague

To help out /u/prim0_RL, I have both a Ryzen 5 1600 and a GTX 1060 3GB. I can get 250 at 1080p if I turn down some settings and a stable 144 at max is 1000000% percent achievable. I love my 144hz monitor and for the price, I love my AOC G2460PF

u/Rhymes03 · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

I've heard nothing but awful things about the steam controllers. Other than that its a personal preference. Im using an afterglow xbox 360 controller and its the best. Plus its only $20 on amazon. As long as you dont mind a wired controller. Here is a link to amazon if its something your interested in. Plus you can chose LED colors.

u/Bearded4Glory · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

I would try to find something with an I5 or Ryzen 5 and a GTX 1050 or RX 580. That should future proof you for a while so you can upgrade your GPU down the road and not have to worry about anything else. Rocket league isn't particular demanding.

This seems like a good deal although I have never heard of the company:

This seems like a good deal as well, more reputable brand:

u/Radioactive-A5q · 2 pointsr/RocketLeague

Samsung CFG70 Series 24-Inch 1ms Curved Gaming Monitor (C24FG70)

This is the one I just got a few weeks back. It's a bit above your price range, but I promise you won't regret it. 144hz makes the game insanely smooth. I have an i7, 1080, and 16gb of ram so I have no issues with dropping below 144.

Good luck man

u/bo0td · 2 pointsr/RocketLeague

I can't help you with the BPM controller issue but, if you're on Windows 10, you can improve the speed of tabbing in and out. Settings - System - Focus Assist, switch everything in there to off.


Also, I highly recommend this cable. Really snug fit, I haven't disconnected since buying it.

u/midnitewarrior · 2 pointsr/RocketLeague

Sorry to hear about your misfortune. Good luck with your recovery.

I've got a Stinky Footboard that I've used for some games. I am not disabled in any way that I'm aware of, but it appears to work well for some things for me.

If I were in a position where I were forced to use it, I'm sure I'd be a lot better with it. There are alternative controllers out there, just look for them, there's probably one out there to help you.

u/Zaydax · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

As someone who has played on a 13 inch macbook pro with a processor with integrated graphics 3-4 generations behind that. That laptop should easily be able to get 60fps on low-medium settings.

EDIT: Wow that's a think boi. Maybe just low settings.

But realistically you should probably just disable vsync and try using a different screen. Much cheaper that way.

This one isn't a bad choice (currently on sale for $100): (Though it has as 4ms rather than 1ms, still loads better than a TV)

u/BostonFire15 · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

I play on this monitor.

The issue isn't with the monitor, the problem I'm having is that I will occasionally hit a button on my controller and the game either fails to register the button press, or there will be a literal 1-2 second delay in the game registering the push.

It's not every game. Hell, it's not even every 5th game. But when it happens it's always at the worst possible time.

It's happened with both wireless and wired controllers; I thought at first it was maybe interference with my Bluetooth controller, but it actually seems like it happens more often with the wired 360 controller.

There are a ton of similar, or identical, complaints across the internet; including some of the top ranking players (such as paschy), and pretty much all of them agree that this whole thing started with the latest update. I have friends that say they've had the same problem, and I have friends who say they haven't. I'm really not sure what to do about it.

u/JackoRL · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

Yes. Since this post I've had some help and have found a different model which appears too be a lot better in my case:

I also wouldn't mind playing around with a few other not so demanding titles as well such as csgo.

u/Jhubbz86 · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

I use this with my Xbone S controller. Works perfectly. They sell them at Gamestop, Target, and pretty much anywhere that sells Xbones

u/erasethenoise · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

Yeah I’m probably gonna get one and hope it helps mine from lagging. Played a game the other night where it just showed me a view from outside the field at the center until after the tip off and actually cost us a goal because I was in the position to be rushing the ball.

u/Daealis · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

I don't think there's a way to tap into the Xbox systems so deep that you can replace the DVR functionality with another app.

With that in mind, I'm guessing your only remaining option is a capture card that simply hijacks the video stream before it's put on your TV and takes a copy of that stream. Something like this thing here. Now that was just the first thing to pop up, I have zero idea which ones are good and which ones are not. But a capture card sounds like the option for you.

u/mxgsfmdpx · 3 pointsr/RocketLeague

It's like a whole new game on PC, especially if you can invest in a 144HZ Freesync monitor. This is the one I bought...

Also, use the display port cable not HDMI. Turn down the graphics settings and enjoy not playing in sand anymore :-)

u/Heikob · 2 pointsr/RocketLeague

Few things :

  • With your GPU (750 Ti), you probably won't be able to reach 144 FPS, even at potato quality. I'd expect ~60 FPS at medium/high quality. And that would be on 1920x1080 resolution.

  • If you still want a 144Hz monitor (might be good if you upgrade the GPU) you could go for something like this or this on a budget.

  • Don't aim for anything higher than 1920x1080p.
u/waffle-monster · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

This is why I love the RL community!

If you're still looking, you can't go wrong with this Xbox 360 controller

u/Machinax · 2 pointsr/RocketLeague

A friend redirected me to this, which seems a much better buy (for a comparable price, too).

u/HarryPopperSC · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

but the 3rd option is people who are interested in the DLC and the physical copy/items, then just decide to smurf. Impossibru!?!?!!

[Edit] - it's actually cheaper on amazon to pre order the CE than it is to buy the base game on steam, CE = £14.04 steam = £14.99

u/Firello · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

yes, cable is ncluded i hope.. so thats all... if you want to play wireless, you would need:
this, and this

u/getlough · 2 pointsr/RocketLeague

I think I did alright trying to minimize costs for a good rocket league machine:

12GB ddr4
Gtx1050ti sc

Can max out rocket league settings, but I would probably struggle with newer games.

I bought a pretty cheap prebuilt PC and added the GPU and SSD. I ended up spending around $600, not including peripherals.

Edit: the downside to this is I can’t really expand this PC anymore. Motherboard is full and the Power supply is maxed. All I can really do now is add RAM

u/Timonster · 20 pointsr/RocketLeague

best for the price

*edit - to be clear, i own 4 xbox360 wired (for local partygames and sometimes RL with friends) and one xboxOne wireless. The xboxOne is far better in terms of feeling and build quality, but he said he doesn't want to spend all the money for it, so i'd recommend the 360.

u/Skubidus · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

Well if you don't have a dongle and the cable not connected, how would the controller transmit the data to your pc then? ;)

This is what you'll need to play wirelessly with your Dualshock 4 on PC:

u/ecastro4 · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

If you have some money to spare after building your PC you could try something like this foot controller:

You could even use two of them, and it could help you a lot with the buttons, although not with the analogs. This thing is used alongside controllers or KB/M.

u/RocketSammael · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

I also use the Elite controller and utilize the paddles on the back, which is the #1 reason I've yet to buy the Switch.

Have you looked into anything like this? (This may be a solution for those of us who want to use another controller)

u/Gimmedatsuperstar · 2 pointsr/RocketLeague

More FPS = Better. Most pros use a 144hz monitor. Here is the monitor I use:
I can't think of anything wrong with the one I have. Most 144hz monitors are very similar. Monitors with Gsync are good because it lets you use Vsync with a smaller amount of input lag. (If and only if you are using a graphics card that will work with it, pretty much all cards except AMD or laptop Nvidia cards will work). But keep in mind that you probably dont want to use Gsync for this game anyways because any input lag is too much input lag.

If your budget and computer can handle it, this is probably the best monitor money can buy:

u/PurePsykosis · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

Judging from the Amazon page here, It comes with all the old dlc except the delorean and the bat mobile. The collectors edition is only really good if you don't own the game already.

u/underlein · 2 pointsr/RocketLeague

These are great, but I guess they're only available in the US?

Edit: found this on amazon.

u/Odiie · 3 pointsr/RocketLeague

amazon has some adapters available that plug straight in to the dock usb port. They also make a USB2.0 to USB-C dongle to plug in to the handheld unit but idk why you'd ever want to do that. The main advantages of an xbox controller compared to switch is that switch triggers are binary, where as xbox triggers are analog. This gives you more throttle control.

u/Dean_RL · 0 pointsr/RocketLeague

Ohhhh PS4! You'll need a video capture card/device then. It takes the PS4 as an input and connects to your PC. Can be kind of pricey though (there are cheap ones but the quality of the video is poor). Something like this:

u/CunnedStunt · 2 pointsr/RocketLeague

It will make a difference for sure. You will still have more input lag than you would on a PC and Monitor, but not as much as you do with a TV.

I have this monitor and I would recommend it if your looking for 120hz+

u/jeff88888 · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

I got something called a fastsnail adapter on Amazon and I can now use either a wired PS4 or XB controller. Works fairly well too. The problem isn't solely the joycons though. Even on 360 controller I can't half flip on the Switch, whereas it's easy on PC/Xbox.

u/SquaresAre2Triangles · 3 pointsr/RocketLeague

Technically there are 5 other rocket league cars that come in a pack and are much easier to find. It's just that they are the hot wheels DLC cars so it's like a hotwheels version of a rocket league version of a hotwheels car.

u/Max-s_Dad · 4 pointsr/RocketLeague

You can most certainly hardwire a Switch. You just need an adapter.

[ Nintendo Switch Wired Internet LAN Adapter by HORI Officially Licensed by Nintendo ]

u/_Wo0k_ · 4 pointsr/RocketLeague

Here is an adapter. Your controller has to have a wired connection with this one and I think you have to map the Elite by first plugging it into a PC and using the Elite App. But, from what I've seen it should work well and could even potentially be used with a USB-C adapter to work in tabletop mode. I think MayFlash makes one that supports a wireless controller connection but I haven't looked into it as much.

u/gadgetmg · 11 pointsr/RocketLeague

This is another option as well. It's a little cheaper. I bought it to use my Xbox One Elite controller with the Switch.

u/Domalix · 6 pointsr/RocketLeague

Though the downside to this is if you got really good this is technically not an approved control scheme for RLCS... unless they consider this a keyboard(maybe? I mean thats all it is )

u/theturbolemming · 5 pointsr/RocketLeague

There's a physical edition that includes most of the DLC! It's only sale for $20 on Amazon:

u/Notasandwhichyet · 2 pointsr/RocketLeague

You have to buy the collectors edition, you will get a physical copy of Rocket League, the 4 new cars (Aftershock, Marauder, Masamune, Esper) and since I imagine you already own a copy of RL you will have an extra key to give away

Rocket League Collectors Edition Links:

u/WaxyPumpkin72 · 3 pointsr/RocketLeague

Collector's Edition is $19.99 on Amazon. I don't know where else it's available to pre-purchase right now for $29.99 on PC.

u/zsarnett · 2 pointsr/RocketLeague

If wireless you will need an adapter

If wired, then connect to the computer via USB cable then download drivers from here

Edit: New Driver Link^

u/Doiq · 2 pointsr/RocketLeague

Any thoughts on this one

Looks to be the official microsoft adapter.

u/Keyanx · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

Usually the controller has to take some time to automatically download the drivers which you can see in the bottom right of task bar. If that isn't the case, see if it works in other games. As for wireless adapters, I use this:

u/ReliablyFinicky · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

If you don't want to switch, you don't want to switch... That's fine... but I bought an Xbox 360 controller for $28 on Amazon (free same-day shipping) and I can't recommend it enough.

u/CaptainHollyShort · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

You can change the controls, just like in the other versions. You can also get a pro controller (expensive though, like $80). There's also this thing, but I'm not sure if that increases input lag.

u/kerowack · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

I have 4 total peripherals plugged in via USB, the first two are a Logitech Anywhere MX mouse and solar keyboard using a single USB port.

For controllers I have one of these plugged in via USB:

And one of these Xbox One wired controllers:

I have no issues with any other games.

u/HoraryHellfire2 · 1 pointr/RocketLeague

Just an fyi, no monitor has 1ms input lag. You're talking about response time, which is not input lag. If you want to read about it, here you go. But to just quote the article:

"Response time is how quickly an image can be displayed, input lag is how long it takes the monitor to react to an action you performed. If you have a one-millisecond response time, it's no guarantee of a great gaming experience if the input lag is too high."

But let's take a look at a practical example. I currently use the AOC G2460PF 144hz monitor which has a 1ms response time. But according to measurements, it has 3.44ms of input lag according to this review. I'll quote it:

>We used a SMTT 2.0, a small testing tool, alongside a sensitive camera, to compare the latency of the G2460PF with a range of monitors with known latency. Over 30 repeat readings were taken to maximise accuracy. Using this method, we measured 3.66ms (just over ½ a frame at 144Hz) of input lag.
