Two controller/friend method
Start an Exhibition match 1v1 with no bots.
- Boost Amount: Unlimited
- Ball Size: Gigantic
- Gravity: Low
Simply start the match and knock the ball into the air with the car going for the achievement. Once it's a good height, press Jump (
) then hold
until you hit the ball. Once you get an "Aerial Hit" on your screen get that car away from the ball. Use the second controller/friend to knock the ball into their own goal. Since credit for goals go to the last person on the team that hit the ball, your Aerial Hit is considered what scored. Achievement unlocked.
If you're having trouble getting the hit then try the Neo Tokyo map. The raised sides reduce the height needed considerably, but the bounce is less predictable to line up.NOTE:
If you meet the requirements and this doesn't unlock double check that you are connected to the Rocket League servers. If you're not, then try to get them back on by starting an online match then try again.Hoops method
: With the Neo Tokyo update, starting position is random so the other method will work more reliably. This will still work, but getting the right start can take time.)
Start an Exhibition match by yourself with these settings:
- Game Mode: Hoops
- Bots: No Bots
- Ball type: Basketball
- Ball size: Large (Gigantic won't score the ball)
With this mode the ball fly's into the air at the start. All you have to do is drive past your own hoop then jump (
) and boost (
) into the ball. Easier said than done, though. If you miss, just restart the match. It may not register an aerial hit every time, but it will award an aerial goal. I've used a different account to verify that pressing
twice as well as getting the aerial hit are NOT required, only the Aerial Goal. The below video is just a few ways it can go in and still count.Optional:
- Gravity: Low
I found this more trouble than help, but you should try adding this to the others if you're having issues.
