The BEST Rocket League Camera Settings [FOV, Distance, Height]

By utilizing the best camera settings in rocket league we'll provide, you can ensure that you're always playing at your best.

Camera settings may not seem like the most relevant thing for a game, yet the best camera settings in Rocket League can make an absolute world of difference. In matches where keeping your eye on the ball and every player around you is the name of the game, camera settings can and will determine whether you end up winning or losing. It’s integral to know that you can change the Rocket League camera settings to improve visibility, especially in the rear and front of the map. They can be adjusted to reflect the movement of the ball and your car.

Key Highlights
  • Turning the camera shake-off is a start towards making the gameplay of Rocket League distinctively good.
  • Distance from your car is another setting directly related to your gameplay. Recommended settings are to keep it around 270-280.
  • The field of view is also a setting that can be enhanced. It should be set up to the maximum settings, which are 110, so players can see all of the maps.
  • Height is another important setting, and it too, is correlated with your game quite directly. Height should be adjusted to 110, the same as the field of view. Height can help you with the POV issues.

Best Camera Settings In Rocket League

Camera Setting For Field Of View – 110 

Your Field of View (FOV) is one of the first options you choose in the menu and is possibly the most important of them all. The higher your FOV, the bigger your view of the entire stadium and everything around you. As a result of a bigger view logically, meaning you have a much better idea of what’s going on throughout the game, maxing out the setting at 110° is your best bet and is the setting agreed upon by most pros.

While most of the camera settings in the game can be up to personal preference to a degree, the FOV is much less so. Because there is such a wide agreement among the pro players, and seeing more of the field is inherently a much bigger advantage, it’s worth consideration. Regardless of what you think might be easier, it’s likely better to shift higher.

We’ll be displaying the settings from the top professional Rocket League players from around the world for each individual setting, so you know that these settings are not only functional but incredibly effective at the highest levels of play.

Express Ground Zero 110

Camera Setting For Distance – 270

The Distance determines the exact distance of the camera from your car. This is very similarly important to the FOV, in that not having proper Camera Distance can end up blocking important visual information to need to keep your eye around the stadium. For this reason, the most agreed upon camera setting by pros for Distance is around 270, bringing you a solid distance from your car while keeping it just close enough to keep your own view of it consistent.

This is a more subjective setting compared to FOV, as distance is not directly correlated to how much you see. While it is important to keep it high, it’s good to prioritize the level of distance that feels just right for you. Differentiating where personal preference is better or following the standard is better is important. However, due to the consistency of results among pros, it’s best to keep in the general range that they also keep to.

Jstn NRG Esports 280
JZR NRG Esports 270
Kronovi Rogue 280

Camera Settings For Height – 110

The Height setting determines exactly how far above your car the camera sits. This is not quite as relevant as the prior settings, but as usual, setting it to a poor number can end up severely hampering your ability to see what’s around you. Generally, pros tend to keep the camera height so it’s just a little above your car, at a solid 110 or so. It can be brought a bit lower or higher, but generally, that’ll be the best to keep an ideal view.

While there is minimal variation among the pros, Height is a highly subjective setting. It has little effect on your vision of the match, and it’s more of a matter of where you want to see your car situated. If you’re comfortable with a higher or much lower height setting, it will not have a noticeable impact on your performance.

Camera Settings For Angle – 4.00

Functioning very similarly practically to the Height setting, the Camera Angle setting gives you a slightly different angle of view depending on where you end up setting it. While it generally doesn’t have a significant impact on your view, not even compared to the height setting, it is generally best to keep around the -3 to -4 range, as the professionals tend to agree.

This is likely the most subjective setting of them all regarding game performance. It has the lowest real impact on your vision of the match. Thus, its main purpose is simply a camera angle you’re most comfortable with. While there is relatively minimal variance in the pro’s settings, there are some significant outliers that perform just as well, regardless. You’re best off choosing the one you like most for this setting.

Player Team Angle
Siki RNG -3.00
Turbopolsa Envy -4.00
Sypical SSG -5.00
Chrome SSG (C) -3.00
Rizzo G2 Esports -4.00
Express Ground Zero -10.00
Gimmick Rat Enterprises -3.00
Jstn NRG Esports -2.00
JZR NRG Esports -6.00
Kronovi Rogue -4.00

Camera Settings For Stiffness – 0.40

The stiffness setting can seem a little difficult to understand as the description for in-game is a little vague. Basically, the point is how tightly the camera is following your car while you’re speeding up, with lower stiffness allowing for the camera to push back further and allow you to gain a better look around the stadium.

This is an important setting to keep in mind, as in most instances of a match, you’ll be in the process of speeding up, thus, keeping that view clear is important. This is why a setting of around 0.4 or so is generally preferred by most professionals, keeping on the lower end and ensuring a good view of the stadium.

Player Team Stiffness
Siki RNG 0.45
Turbopolsa Envy 0.35
Sypical SSG 0.40
Chrome SSG (C) 0.35
Rizzo G2 Esports 0.20
Express Ground Zero 0.00
Gimmick Rat Enterprises 0.55
Jstn NRG Esports 0.55
JZR NRG Esports 0.00
Kronovi Rogue 0.60

Camera Settings For Swivel – 5.00

The Swivel Speed of the camera is how fast it’ll move around your car. Ideally, the best Swivel Speed would be the highest it can go, as the faster your camera moves, the faster you can react. However, the reality is that it’s not consistent for most players to keep up with the highest speed available, and thus, even among the top professional players, the Swivel Speed is not consistent. For that reason, we suggest a middle approach to it, keeping a solid speed while not letting it be overwhelming.

While the setting is inconsistent among pros, there is a general tendency to aim higher with swivel rather than lower. Quick camera movement can end up ensuring a great play at just the right moment. It’s best advised that you stay on the higher end.

Siki RNG 6.00
Turbopolsa Envy 7.00
