To start earning your free drops, all you need to do is link your Twitch and Rocket League accounts and start watching matches — though the rate at which drops occur isn’t yet known.

You can collect drops through one of two streams: the CollegeCarball Twitch channel, or Rocket League’s official Twitch channel, which we’ve embedded below so you can start earning straight away.

Whether it’s even possible to get every single drop isn’t clear, but the best way to maximize your chances is by simply watching as many games as possible and keeping your fingers crossed.

Game titles are branching into Twitch drops now more than ever before, to give fans an extra incentive for watching streams. So it’s good to keep your eyes peeled for any Rocket League streams that might have drops enabled, as well as any other game that you’re a fan of.

CRL Spring Showdown matches kick-off at 5:00 PM (PDT) / 8:00 PM (EDT) / 1:00 AM (BST) each night from April 21 until the final on April 29.

The Rocket League challenges, which have already been revealed, are fairly straightforward, with one task simply requiring you to “play an online match” to earn a Fortnite reward.

Here’s what you’ll need to do to earn each of these Rocket League rewards.

How to claim Rocket League rewards in Fortnite

  1. Download Rocket League for free, if you don’t have it already.
  2. You’ll then need to load up the game and complete each of the Rocket League tasks, which can be found below.
  3. After completing the challenges, you’ll simply need to log into Fortnite.
  4. From there, you should be able to find the Rocket League-themed items in your Locker.

As your Epic Games account is connected to both Rocket League and Fortnite, it will register the challenges automatically, meaning you won’t have to manually claim the items after each task.
