What is an air roll?

If you are new to the Rocket League universe, then let us tell you that by air rolls, we mean rotating the car on a horizontal axis while it is airborne.

However, some claim that, just like in Rocket League, in Sideswipe air rolls give you even more control of your car and make boost management easier.

How to do air rolls in Rocket League Sideswipe?

In Sideswipe, you have to enable air rolls, and that’s pretty much it. However, the game’s tutorials will never teach you how to do so. But don’t worry. As always, we’ve got your back. Enabling air rolls is a pretty straightforward process, and when you do it once, we bet you can always do it as and when you wish. Here is a step-by-step guide on doing air rolls in Rocket League Sideswipe:

  • Start a match
  • Now you need to double-tap the direction joystick in any direction when you are either grounded or airborne
  • It will now make your car twist and turn on its horizontal axis immediately when you are airborne

Down below we have also attached a video tutorial to explain better.

Once you leave your movement joysticks, the air rolls will stop, and you will once again have to repeat the process if you want to do them again.
