It was a case of when fiction becomes reality during the first day of RLCS Season 5 World Championship in London.

Rocket League is a soccer video game with a twist where players are sat inside small racing cars where they must maneuver to score.


During Tainted Minds’ walkout before their match against complexity, their player CJCJ made the grandest appearance in the tournament thus far.

With a teammate on either side of him, he came out driving in a toddler-sized ride on car waving to the crowd.


He almost faced a hiccup as he drove towards a bump in the floor but a small push from his teammate secured a smooth ride to main stage.

The casters were overcome with laughter as they pointed out a white paper taped to the hood of his little red ride that urged people to follow the player’s Twitter account.


Taking a wide turn he pulled up in front of the stage’s stairs where he opened his tiny car door to take a step out causing the audience to roar in laughter.

It was an amusing start to the series that saw close maps but ultimately Tainted Minds was unable to secure a win as coL won 3-0.

Fortnite players can unlock Rocket League themed cosmetic items – but there’s a twist!

Many Fortnite players will be looking to claim these new cosmetic items, however, the tasks needed to unlock them can only be completed in Rocket League.


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.


How to complete Rocket League’s Fortnite challenges

  • Play an online match in any playlist.
  • Win one online match in casual with the Llama Antenna.
  • Get 5 goals, saves, or assists with the Llama Topper.
