Rocket League: How to Trade Blueprints?
Rocket League is one of the most popular games of our time. Gamers have fallen in love with the idea of high-speed car football games. Anyone who plays Rocket League wants to have the coolest vehicles and be able to perform the most impressive tricks. If you’re part of this community, you’ve probably heard about the Blueprint System. Here we will explain to you exactly what Blueprints are and how to trade Blueprints in Rocket League. With us, you will be able to achieve all your Rocket League goals.
What Are Blueprints in Rocket League?
Blueprints are schematics of a specific item that not only unlock the item for you but also give you the opportunity to build it. Please note that this is NOT the finished item. What you get is a visualization of what you can create and detailed information about how much it will cost you. In order to build an in-game item included in the blueprint, you have to spend game credits on it. This can be done immediately upon receiving it or at another more convenient time, as blueprints can be easily stored in your Rocket League inventory.
Unrevealed Blueprints vs. Revealed Blueprints?
The Blueprint System was introduced as a form of replacement for Crates, which were a form of random, special item drops in the game. Each Crate contained a different series of exclusive items, such as Wheels, Goal Explosions, or Decals. In 2019, when the swap was made, many players still had Crates in their inventory. Wanting to protect them from being lost, the Rocket League’s developers turned those Crates into Unrevealed Blueprints. Their name comes from the fact that these Blueprints do not immediately provide visualizations of exactly what item can be built with them (but don’t worry, it doesn’t cost anything to reveal it). The Blueprints that do not originate from Crates are called Revealed Blueprints. They are free items obtained through post-game drops.
How to Obtain Revealed Blueprints?
Fortunately for everyone, Revealed Blueprints are very easy to acquire. First of all, you get them after online matches and through challenges and in-game events. In most cases, blueprints are randomly assigned and you have no control over which schematic you get. Unfortunately, you can’t buy them directly from the in-game store either, however, they can be purchased from other reliable online vendors such as RL Exchange. Blueprints can also be traded.
How to Trade Blueprints Rocket League?
Now that we have discussed in detail what Blueprint items are, let’s go through the process of trading them. There are two ways to trade Blueprints in the game, either Trade-Ins or player-to-player trading.
What Is the Blueprints Trade-In System?
Since Blueprints are relatively easy to acquire in Rocket League and can quickly accumulate in your inventory, the game’s developers have offered a system that will allow you to get rid of such “leftovers” in exchange for better items. The in-game Trade-In system, allows players to exchange 5 blueprints of the same rarity, for one blueprint of the next level of rarity. For example, trade five exotic blueprints and you get one black market blueprint, or trade five very rare Blueprints and get one import Blueprint.
Here Are the Levels of Blueprint Rarity in Rocket League:
- Random Blueprint (gray)
- Rare Blueprint (blue)
- Premium Blueprint (green)
- Limited design (orange)
- Very Rare Blueprint (Purple)
- Import Blueprint (red)
- Exotic Blueprint (gold)
- Black Market Blueprint (Neon purple)
If you want to access the Trade-In menu, go to the Blueprint Storage screen and right-click on the Blueprint you want to get rid of. Remember that the Unrevealed Blueprints Items cannot be used for Trade-Ins.
How to Engage in Blueprint Player-to-Player Trading?
Contrary to the fears of many players, Revealed Blueprints and items built from Blueprints can be traded. The trading panel is a part of the game, but it does not offer you the opportunity to find other players who would like to trade with you. That’s something you’ll have to do yourself. When searching for a trading partner, look at one of the popular sites, discord groups, or online forums that connect you with other players and find an offer that will satisfy you. If you come to an agreement on your trade, you can finalize it in Rocket League. However, before you get down to trading Blueprints, there are a few things you need to keep in mind:
- To trade in Rocket League you must have bought at least 500 credits (unless you’ve been playing the game since before the Free-to-Play update)
- Cross-platform trading is blocked (with few exceptions). Only Rocket League items bought on the same platform can be traded.
- A 72-hour Trade Block will be imposed on your account after purchase, meaning you will only be able to trade Blueprints, but not Blueprints items or Credits
- Watch out for scammers! Don’t give away your Blueprints before you get paid for them.
