Note: Depending on what device you are using some of the settings below may not apply.

1) Frame Rate

Regardless of console make sure you are playing the game at 60 FPS. The higher the frame rate the more of an advantage you will have.

2) Verticle Sync

Switch on vertical sync to prevent screen tearing.

3) Weather Effects

Switch off 'Weather Effects'. This will eliminate the rain from all of your maps.

4) Motion Blur and Camera Shake

Switch off 'Motion Blur' and 'Camera Shake' to give your game more clarity.

5) Camera FOV

Increase the 'Camera FOV' to 110 degrees to open your playing field and see a lot more information.

6) Distance

Increase the 'Distance' to give yourself a wider view.

7) Boost

Move your boost button from Circle to Square or bumper. This will give you a slightly easier angle to hit the X button to jump and moving it to bumper gives you easy access to boost with both thumbs on the thumbsticks and X.

8) Air Roll and Power Slide

Move the Air Roll and Power Slide to L1. This will allow you to adjust the vehicle in the air and keep your thumb on the boost button. This will make it easier to Power Slide while boosting.


9) Vehicle Differences

The differences in the vehicles is their Power Sliding, Hit Boxes, and Turn Radius. Choose a vehicle that you feel comfortable with and suits your gameplay.

10) Items

Items make no difference in the game. They do not affect the Hit Box.


11) Training

Play Aerial Training until you can get at least a 5, a 9 or 10 on Goal Tending and a 7 or 8 on Striker Training.

12) Defense

Always remember that defense is more important than offense.

13) Cycling

An important tactic is cycling. You need to be able to cycle back quickly if necessary and play goal tender to cover a teammate if they fail to clear the ball.

14) Boost

Never pick boost over a save, having full boost does nothing if the opponent scores.

15) Goal

Stop the ball before it can get near to your goal. Use aerials above your goal and wall riding before your goal.

16) Campers

Campers will sit at the mid-field boost line and just wait for the ball to come to them. Don't just clear the ball away, dribble it to a corner boost and play it onto the wall and play it on your opponents side.

17) Boost Starving

Do not let opponents come in and take away your boosts, this is called boost starving.

18) Goal Tender

The player who should have the most boosts on your team is the goal tender.

19) Pinch Shot

If you do not have boost to clear the ball the Pinch Shot is an effective way of getting rid of it. The Pinch Shot is basically driving the ball straight against the wall.

20) Striking

Practice striking the ball so you know how to get good contact.

21) Power Shooting

The front of the ball is the most powerful shot of the ball, the sides of the ball are second and the roof of the ball is third. The wheels of your vehicle are the weakest point of your vehicle.

22) Possession

If you have a good cycling mentality you will be able to hang onto the ball longer which will make it easier to score.

23) Wall Ride

Learn how to wall ride the ball above the net and center it downwards.

24) Wall

Play the ball against the wall to get good centers and fake out the goal tender.

25) Aerials

There is no point going for an aerial if your opponent has already started the aerial process.
