With Rocket League’s summer updates on the horizon, Psyonix has revealed the drop rates of items in the current iteration of its loot boxes. With Belgium and the Netherlands hammering down on gambling and loot boxes in games, it’s hardly surprising Psyonix seems to be taking steps in an attempt to satisfy these authorities. Whether it’s going to be enough to put them back to sleep, however, is another matter entirely.
Regardless, the drop rates themselves aren’t very surprising, nor is the process that determines what item you get upon opening a crate: When you open a box, the rarity is determined first. Afterward, the item within that rarity. And finally, whether the item in question is ‘certified’ or ‘painted’. Pretty straightforward.
The drop rates for each item rarity are as follows:
- Rare Item: 55%
- Very Rare Item: 28%
- Import Item: 12%
- Exotic Item: 4%
- Black Market Item: 1%
- Chance of receiving Painted attribute: 25%
- Chance of receiving Certified attribute: 25%
Psyonix also confirmed that the drop rates of these items have been the same since the loot box system was released, and will remain consistent with any new crate releases. Should the drop rates change at any point, Psyonix will provide players with an update through a new blog post.
