Drop Rates in Rocket League Crates Image

Hello everyone! We wanted to take a moment to talk about drop rates in our Crates and Keys system. Highlighted below are those rates for all five Customization Item rarity levels found in Rocket League Crates, along with odds for Painted, Certified, and Special Edition attributes:

  • Rare Item: 55%

  • Very Rare Item: 28%

  • Import Item: 12%

  • Exotic Item: 4%

  • Black Market Item: 1%

  • Chance of receiving Painted attribute (on select items): 25%

  • Chance of receiving Certified attribute (on select items): 25%

  • Chance of receiving Special Edition attribute (on select items): 25%

These drop rates have been the same since our Crates and Keys system launched in September 2016. Every Crate and Crate Series in Rocket League are subject to these rates, whether it was the retired Champions Series Crates or the next Crate we’re releasing later this summer.

What about limited-run items like Golden Eggs and Golden Pumpkins? These use a different set of drop rates because they typically offer items from multiple Crates -- the Golden Pumpkin sources its items from the Nitro, Turbo and Player’s Choice Crates, for example. Those drop rates are as follows:

  • Rare Item: 50%

  • Very Rare Item: 30%

  • Import Item: 15%

  • Exotic Item: 4%

  • Black Market Item: 1%

  • Chance of receiving Painted attribute (on select items): 50%

  • Chance of receiving Certified attribute (on select items): 50%

Whether you open a Crate with a Key or a Decryptor, our Crate system uses the same three-step process:

  1. First, the system determines what rarity level to choose from -- Rare, Very Rare, Import, Exotic or Black Market -- based on the percentages listed above.

  2. Next, the system determines which item within that rarity group is dropped. If you’re receiving an Import-level Customization Item from the Impact Crate, for example, each of the three Import items in the Impact Crate have an equal chance of dropping.

  3. Finally, using the attribute percentages listed above, the system determines if the item will drop with Painted, Certified, and/or Special Edition attributes, when applicable.

If we do make any changes to drop rates, we’ll be sure to post the new numbers here on the blog. Thanks for stopping by, and be sure to share your thoughts and questions with us on the subreddit and on Twitter.

UPDATE 6/26/2019: We updated this blog to include information on Special Edition items, and to make it easier to read for newer players. Thanks, everyone!
