Rocket League has six different body types, or hitboxes, and today it's time to take a closer look at the Dominus Hitbox!
Rocket League and Hitboxes... a better love story than Twilight. It's pretty important that you at least know the basics of every car body type in order to rank up in the Battle Arena and get those sweet rewards at the end of each season.
Each type has its own unique advantages and disadvantages, individual stats, and related cars. In this series, we break down each hitbox, look at their characteristics, and the cars available for them. This time, we take a look at the Dominus Hitbox. It's time to dive in...
Hitboxes in Rocket League are an interesting phenomenon. Prior to the Anniversary Update, or Patch v1.35, each vehicle had its own properties. To better balance Rocket League, Psyonix decided to introduce six specific hitboxes that all new cars had to fit into. We've already taken a look at the Octane Hitbox, and with Dominus being incredibly popular as well, it's about time to dive into this Hitbox!
Rocket League Dominus Hitbox: Dimensions
Why are dimensions important? The Dominus is a tad lacking when it comes to height. However, what it lacks in height, it makes up for in length. Since the Dominus Hitbox is so long, it offers better reach and is ideal for defense, as it is better able to make last-second goal saves. Oh, and it can be fabulous for fast-flicks. Enjoy!
Rocket League Dominus Hitbox: Handling, Height, & Inclination
Rocket League Dominus Hitbox: Handling
When it comes to the Dominus Hitbox's handling, you will find that when you are not boosting, its handling is more or less the same as the Octane Hitbox.
The difference, though, is that when boosting, its handling is subtly better. That means, in practice, that the Dominus's turning radius is somewhat tighter when boosting, helpful for fast turns.
Rocket League Dominus Hitbox: Ground Height & Inclination
The combination of the Dominus's height, inclination, and handling makes it a pretty useful vehicle in Rocket League. It is great for fast-saves, as its length gives it a little more reach than a shorter hitbox like the Octane. Its length is the main appeal of the Dominus Hitbox, since its handling is very similar to the Octane. That being said, the Dominus Hitbox does feature the Tyranno, so that's certainly a plus!
Also, keep in mind that these numbers might not be 100% correct, and may change with future patches and updates.
