Over the years, we've seen a range of events and themed seasons arrive in Rocket League, resulting in a massive portfolio of extraordinary items that can spice up your appearance and overall flair in-game. But once these events have ended, so has your chance of getting your hands on the items included. Kind of.

Here's where Rocket League trading comes into play.

Rocket League offers the ability for players to trade their items with another player, meaning if you've missed out on an item that you want to sport on your car, you can simply ask your friends - or strangers - to trade it with you, if you've got something to offer in return. But, how do you trade with other players in Rocket League? Here's all you need to know.

Some of the rarest items in Rocket League, such as the Alpha Boost are often traded between players. However, if you're also wanting to do some classic playground swapsies with players, here's exactly how you can do that.

First off, there are a few details that you need to know. You cannot trade in Rocket League unless you have purchased at least 500 Credits. This may seem to be a paywall for some, especially free-to-play gamers, but Rocket League trading does fall victim to scams, and this step is to prevent fraudulent activity.

Players can also only trade items that were purchased or unlocked on the console that they are trading with. Cross-platform progression has allowed players to own items on, for example, PC, which cannot be transferred to their Xbox accounts, meaning you need to be logged into the console where you have acquired the items you want to trade.

Once you have purchased 500 Credits and logged on to your desired console, Rocket League trading is quite easy.

Here's how to trade with other players in Rocket League:

  1. Ensure that you have the "Allow Player-to-Player Trading" setting enabled.
  2. Invite a player to a party.
  3. Select the "Invite to Trade" option.
  4. Choose the Items or Credits you want to offer.
  5. Wait for the other player to select their offerings.
  6. Select "Accept".
  7. The "Review Your Trade" window will then appear. If you're satisfied with the trade, press and hold the "Accept" button again once it becomes available.
  8. Your new items will be added to your Garage Inventory and your traded items will have been removed.

Those easy-to-follow steps will walk you through how to trade with other players in Rocket League, but always be careful when getting into business with players that you don't know, as you don't want to be giving up your rare items for nothing.
