From SCUF's features to recommended layouts, here are some expert recommendations and settings to improve your gameplay in Rocket League.
Step One: Selecting Other SCUF Options
Reduce discomfort and fatigue by ordering your SCUF without vibration modules / rumbles (or taking them out if you’re using a SCUF Vantage 2). This will lighten the overall weight of your controller making it more comfortable to play for long periods of time.
If you are a SCUF Vantage 2 owner, you have two additional access points called Sax Buttons designed to further reduce finger movement away from the Triggers and improve your performance. These are located on the side of the controller which you can engage using your inner finger.
For Rocket League, having more control when performing aerials and having the ability to Air Roll Left and Air Roll Right gives you a huge advantage on console.
First start by assigning these functions to buttons you can bind.
Go into Options > Controls > View/Change Bindings
Assign Air Roll Left to L1
Assign Air Roll Right to R1
From here, map Air Roll Left (L1) to S1 and Air Roll Right (R1) to S2.
Step Two: Advanced Game Settings
Now that you know about all the mechanical changes that you will make you a better player, let’s move onto the digital settings so that you can get the most out of your gameplay with your SCUF and play like the Pros. We recommend going into your Rocket League settings and making a couple tweaks.
While the Camera Shake setting can add some cool visual effects while playing, it can hinder your view and is unnecessary.
Go into Options > Camera > Uncheck Camera Shake
Increase how quickly the camera moves around when you’re using the right thumbstick.
Go into Options > Camera > Swivel Speed > 5.00
Keep control over your view by having the ability to switch between keeping your camera on the ball or on your car.
Go into Options > Controls > Ball Camera Mode > Toggle
To recap some settings discussed in Improving Your Aim in Rocket League there are two additional camera settings to improve your gameplay:
Max out your field of view to be able to see the largest amount of the field as possible.
Go into Options > Camera > Field of View > 110
Keep your view as accurate as possible by increasing how stiffly the camera follows your car.
Go into Options > Camera > Stiffness > 0.60
Play like a Pro
Now that you have customized the different aspects of your controller, it’s time to jump in-game and test your new setup. Like every change, adjusting to these new settings may take some time - however, with practice and dedication, every SCUF feature will help you reach your full potential in Rocket League!
