Psyonix's Rocket League is a game that requires both aiming skill and mechanical prowess in other areas but if you are lacking the first one, the Heatseeker mode will be just the thing for you.

Rocket League will get a new game mode, named Heatseeker, on 16 April 2020. Just like the name suggests, the ball will behave like a heat-seeking missile and the goals will be the two hot spots on the field.

Every time a player touches a ball, it will initially go the direction in which it normally should after the impact but the trajectory will soon change and the ball will head to the goal. 

Naturally, saving counts as a contact and will, therefore, send the ball flying towards the opponents' net eventually, regardless of whether the angle of contact was aimed to do so or not.

The big twist comes in after each subsequent contact though. As the opposing players send the ball flying the opposite direction, it will accelerate each time it's hit. Eventually, the ball will reach enough speed to beat the players' reflexes and mechanics, resulting in an inevitable goal. The first team that scores seven goals wins.

Matches in Heatseeker will award the same amount of experience as Casual, Competitive or Extra Mode playlists so Rocket Pass 6 tiers will keep getting unlocked even if you play the featured mode exclusively.

Hypnoteks player banner will be up for grabs at any time someone logs in during the time-limited event. Heatseeker will remain in the game until 20 April 2020.
