With hundreds of hours locked into Rocket League we sometimes instantly assume what kind of play our opponents are going to pull off next – and while doing so we assume that our opponent will pull off some impressive attempt to shoot at the goal. All it takes in these kind of situations is for you to do… well… basically nothing.

The clip below was posted earlier this week to Reddit by user HelvetiaGaming and it shows what these moments can look like. The player is driving in one of the new Batmobiles brings the ball in front of the goal, but instead of making an attempt to score he just fakes to go for the goal and waits until his opponents knock themselves out. As a defender you look really stupid in such a situation, but hey, we’ve all been there. Make sure to watch this cool clip and don’t be fooled: It takes a lot of skill to make such an impressive fake!
