Ready your rockets — Rocket Arena: Season 1 is approaching fast! Prowl the arena with cat-loving super genius Flux, earn loads of new rewards, launch into ranked play and practice your rocket jumps because the first event begins on August 12! Plus Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members can play for free from Thursday, July 30 at 12:01 a.m. PDT until Sunday, August 2 at 11:59 p.m. PDT.
Flux Enters the Fray
The youngest ever student at Propulsion Prep, Flux is a science genius and serious cat enthusiast. Flux is taking some time off school to join the Tour and test her experiments in the field. Flux uses a handy laser pointer to guide her fearsome Rockats around the arena, terrorizing her opponents. All in the name of science!
Flux can also create a massive Black Hole Cat that gradually moves across the map, growing bigger all the time as it feasts on any rockets in its path. With a fully-fed Black Hole Cat, Flux can help her team push towards objectives and zone out opponents. This is one fat cat you don’t wanna mess with.
Flux prefers to control her experiments from a distance, but if some disagreeable opponent gets too close, she can shift into another dimension to escape and traipse around the arena unseen. That should come in handy. She may be a bit odd, but we think this kooky kid’s got a real shot at winning the Tour!
Blast in Paradise
Break out the sunscreen — the Tour is going Tropical this Summer in our first event. The next stop takes our heroes to the tropical paradise that Blastbeard calls home: Crater’s Edge. Get ready to loot, pillage, and have a blast, August 12-August 25.
And be sure to bring your sea legs to two new tropical maps: Grand Harbor and the Lagoon of Doom. No worries if you don’t know how to surf. Just perfect the art of Rocket Jumping on water if you want to stay dry. And leave some space in your suitcase for goodies because you’ll be able to pick up plenty of tropical new outfits. Plus, all Blast in Paradise outfits come with a tropical Crater’s Edge character stand, and a unique background, so you’ll have plenty of mementos to take home from your trip to paradise. Plus try out six new event playlists, including Treasure Hunt, Beach Ball, and Doubles!
Take a moment to catch your breath, because the second event is barreling your way at unsafe speeds — Runaway Megadon arrives in September!
Boost Your Collection with Blast Pass
While there’s plenty of exciting free rewards you can earn just by playing, if you want to take your collection to the next level, be sure to grab the Season 1 Blast Pass. Complete all the Season Challenges to unlock 117 rewards, including 33 outfits! Plus, you can earn up to 1500 Rocket Fuel to use for Outfits, VFX Trails, Totem Parts, or even all of next season’s Blast Pass.
XP Boost rewards will keep your progress moving quickly throughout the season, but if you want to go even faster, party up with some friends to take advantage of the Party XP Boosts. There’s a real treasure trove here, so don’t pass it up — grab your Blast Pass and get to blasting!
Rule the Arena in Ranked
Hopefully, you’ve got your shooting boots on now that pre-season is over. All ranks reset for Season 1 and now the real action begins. Get out there and trade rockets with the best players in the land. Win matches in Ranked and collect your badge. The more you win, the higher you’ll climb! Can you get to 50? We’ll be very proud of you if you do. But we’re proud of you already, just for reading this article.
The 100th Rocket Championship Tour Begins!

Reach New Strategic Depths (and Heights)
Rockets are easy to use but challenging to truly master. Learn how to time your dodges, lead your targets, and use items and gadgets like the Rocket Magnet, Trip Mine, and Speed Boost to change the course of combat. Become one with your rocket and you will rule the arena.

You’ll need every edge you can get to rule the Rocket Championship Tour.
Change the Game
There’s more than one way to play. Dive into Knockout for classic 3v3 competitive action, or warm up first against RocketBots and test out your favorite combos. Compete to score goals in Rocketball, control zones in Mega Rocket, and go for the gold in Treasure Hunt. When you’re ready to go rocket-to-rocket with the best, dive into Ranked Play and show ‘em what you’re made of. Let’s Rocket!
