You can only unlock painted items online.

I simply played 5 matches of Standard 3v3 online (the game mode does not matter) and unlocked a Painted Top Hat at the end of the fifth game.

It may take longer for you though since it is down to luck and will unlock at random.

Note: There is apparently a 10 hour weekly limit to earning rewards, if you find you are no longer earning items simply wait until the following week.

* With the last update trading was introduced into the game. You can now receive Painted and Certified items via another player. The achievement has been reported to be rather glitchy when unlocking via trading.

However, according to user MacWhyte after recieving your painted item from a friend, switching profiles at the main menu and then switching back to your profile unlocks the achievement immediately. If not then waiting 24 hours after you received the painted item works as well according to many users.
BIGB ECAccording to this http://www.rocketleaguegame.com/news/2016/06/introducing-pai... exhibition/private matches do not count.

vXTotalChaosXvDoes anybody know if there is any rhyme or reason to how you get the items? I got an item drop five matches in a row and then didn't get an item for seven straight matches.

White WyvernCheers big, will update so people don't waste time in exhibition

@chaos, there were a couple of games where I didn't get anything aswell. Not sure why, but I did get items again soon afterwards.

azGRIMESI played 5 games in a row 3v3 online and didn't get anything at all at the end of the games.
Posted by azGRIMES on 21 Jun 16 at 16:35
bigbear XBAIt's pretty freaking random. I've played around 20 matches the last two days since the DLC went live. Probably won 13 with 5 MVPs. Including 5 in a row at least once.

I've only got 1 painted item and no certified. The painted came when I gained a player level but that might have been coincidence.
Posted by bigbear XBA on 21 Jun 16 at 18:16
ScorchPSOOpposite for me. Played 4 hours worth of games without a break and got a certified on my 5th game and then nothing for the rest of the 3 n half hours. Not even kidding. This new DLC is awful. Just a huge luck based grind

DropDeadArtemusAfter 4 hours, I haven't unlocked a single painted or certified item. I've play public and ranked matches online. Won and lost. Nothing. RNGesus hates me on every game with random drops.
Posted by DropDeadArtemus on 21 Jun 16 at 21:38
vXTotalChaosXvYeah I have only got a couple rares but no painted or certified. Lucky it's actually a really fun game because I probably wouldn't keep trying.

marklynxHow do you guys tell what you have unlocked? I don't get any popups after the games have finished or anything...

Then, you didn't get anything. I've only gotten 5 items since the update total.

qwxxAre these items in the Inventory? Or is that not "painted"?
Posted by qwxx on 22 Jun 16 at 05:06
MizerisMoneyDo you have to be playing with certain items already equipped, or does it not matter what you have on your car? I like to change things up occasionally with toppers, flags, and rocket trails.

GREGO McGEEI've played 20 games on pro. Seems to me like you only get stuff when you win and are MVP...
Posted by GREGO McGEE on 22 Jun 16 at 07:55
FiveWizz@Grego McGee I'm not so sure that's true to be honest. I was winning (and losing) games without being MVP (because I stay in goal) and was getting items although it was very rare and very random when they came.

The drop rate just seems to have dropped drastically without explanation. I'm hoping it gets patched and isn't intentional.

TuKraZeI am all about achievements do not get me wrong, but lets just stop and think about this for a second...."Not everything is going to be patterned just for our convenience and our need for things to fall in to place etc, these are not designed to be guaranteed after x amount of matches etc". Honestly...I think the game should just be enjoyed, and once you do finally get the item you require you may well find yourself not so negative about the game. I find too many people take this level of impatience to a whole new level and then they start blaming the game on how it has bad mechanics and that the game is rubbish blah-de-blah. I've put 4-5 hours in and still not got a painted item, but the game is seriously fun, so when I get it, I will get it.

Rusty Nail zhI already got 2 painted items, but didn't get an achievement. angry
Posted by Rusty Nail zh on 26 Jun 16 at 19:23
Rusty Nail zhThis achievement is sort of glitched. Well the achievement pops up right, but the game glitches the item gift. Before I popped the achievement, I got 2 painted items on the main menu screen, which didn't seem to trigger the achievement. As soon as I got the painted item at the end of a match, at the team/player screen, the achievement popped normally.
Posted by Rusty Nail zh on 27 Jun 16 at 08:33

Posted by DunderMifflin83 on 29 Jun 16 at 22:28
FiveWizzPlayed every night since the update on the 20th and have received no painted items. Pretty obtuse achievement as it is pretty clear the drop rate has been severely reduced just so we play it more. Saying that; all the rest were really easy and I do have tons of fun playing.

trollmeimasianUnlocked another painted item, no achievement. That makes 3 painted items collected so far
Posted by trollmeimasian on 03 Jul 16 at 01:24
FiveWizzI got my first painted item last night and got the achievement with it too so the glitch must be random. Sorry to those that it didn't work for. I earned it via matches rather than a trade. Has taken hours and hours of playing games. Painted item I got was crap too some wheels where the colour difference was so slight that I couldn't even tell the difference.
Posted by FiveWizz on 03 Jul 16 at 18:31

I know its luck based but i've played for a while now
Posted by NoHeroes94 on 05 Jul 16 at 09:30
FiveWizzIt doesn't have to be competitive. I got mine during a normal online game. mine took 3 weeks of playing practically every night to get one to drop.
Posted by FiveWizz on 05 Jul 16 at 09:35

one of the solutions says crafting doesnt work, but the comments under that all say that it does work.
Posted by pukem0nn on 11 Jul 16 at 14:00
disturbedone47You should put in the solution you can only unlock new items for 10 hours a week I looked into it cause I wasn't unlocking nothing for several hours and found out you only unlock the new online items for 10 hours a week

danlher360Is that really true? That'd be stupidly lame.
Posted by danlher360 on 13 Jul 16 at 02:44
disturbedone47I have read a few articles saying that it is true and was mentioned in the update I looked around cause I couldn't get one for like 10 hours plus so I looked into it and that's what I read I'm not 100 percent sure if that's true but it would explain alot

Posted by disturbedone47 on 13 Jul 16 at 03:24
White WyvernYeah, I found that out going for the certified item but I couldn't find an official article explaining the 10 hour system.
Posted by White Wyvern on 13 Jul 16 at 08:08
FiveWizzThis is the craziest thing I've ever heard. Well, not the craziest but that can't be true because according to that it is to compete with individuals idling to a full inventory but you can't even idle or cheat the game because you'd be kicked from the matches (within about 20 seconds). I genuinely don't understand what "they" are getting at. But I do know the drop rate is absolutely brutal. If this was even made public officially it would just encourage people to actually stop playing the game which is the opposite of what they'd want.
Posted by FiveWizz on 13 Jul 16 at 16:08
disturbedone47Yeah I'm getting pretty close to that point of not wanting to play anymore really like the game but damn this ach is brutal I'm over 30 hours trying for this 1 ach at least I might just take a break from it
Posted by disturbedone47 on 13 Jul 16 at 16:45
danlher360I got lucky last night and got the item and the freaking achievement. And so the grinding for the certified item begins.

I've played a lot this last couple weeks trying to get this achievement, easily over 10 hours. But after the last update I can safely say I played well under 10 hours. Just my 2 cents.
Posted by danlher360 on 13 Jul 16 at 18:52
danlher360Apparently the 10 hour limit is real, I read this in Psyonyx Forum:

Psyonix-Kyle wrote:
Hey, everyone. The weekly 10-hour limit of online play resets every Friday or after you get an online item drop. As you play more online matches it increases your chances for an item to drop. I am not seeing widespread issues with this and we've looked at it internally and it's working fine. I will keep my eye on this, but the main thing to know is that items can take some time to drop and you have to play online to count towards that 10-hour mark each week.

Unmet PlayerI have been just idling overnight once per week. I get my ten hours of items and don't have to play. I have just given up on this game and waiting for a fairly easy certified item so that I can finally complete this
Posted by Unmet Player on 13 Jul 16 at 21:10
Unmet PlayerIdling for ten hours overnight has net me 16 items over the past 2 weeks (8 both weeks). I have gotten 1 certified, 3 painted, 1 very rare, and 11 uncommon. Once you have your items you can trade them in for another chance at something good.

trollmeimasianHow about a method to fix this glitched achievement?
Posted by trollmeimasian on 14 Jul 16 at 01:16
the JeffreyTMI Was like the 3rd person in the world to get both certified achievements, and now, after getting like 5 other certified items, I can never get this painted item. I get an item every 10-15 matches, which means I don't get anything ever. Fix the fucking drop rate psyonix, because before this update I actually liked this game.
Posted by the JeffreyTM on 14 Jul 16 at 14:53
One7TOut3 weeks of playing and I finally got a painted item. Good job this game is so much fun to play
Posted by One7TOut on 15 Jul 16 at 06:46
Pedle ZelnipI'm not convinced of the 10 hour limit, I stepped away from the game for awhile, came back played 2 matches and finally got an item (not painted or certified, was a common topper). Since then I've played another 5-10 matches and not gotten anything.

What I *did* notice though was right around the time I got that item I had levelled up, so I'm wondering if you always get an item if you jump a level.
Posted by Pedle Zelnip on 17 Jul 16 at 18:27
LFC NEMESIS^ I thought Pedle Zelnip was onto something with getting items when you level up as I'd hardly been getting any drops until I just got a painted 'Derby' topper. I was Level 23 & 1 bar away from Levelling up so I think this is just random I'm afraid.

+1 for the solution anyway
Posted by LFC NEMESIS on 17 Jul 16 at 20:23
pukem0nnfinally!!! got the damned painted item after getting my 5th certified one.
Posted by pukem0nn on 18 Jul 16 at 19:54
Pedle ZelnipYup, I think it is random. After the last item pop nothing, and I got about 2/3rds of the way through level 22 when my painted item finally popped.

Looks like it is just random and a really, really, really low drop rate. Horrible achievement.
Posted by Pedle Zelnip on 23 Jul 16 at 20:13
Unmet PlayerI can confirm the 10 hour limit, as I have done consecutive afk grinding sessions overnight. You will not get items after playing for ten hours. The reset is some time Friday. so I usually get my 10 hours during the weekend.
Posted by Unmet Player on 24 Jul 16 at 05:00
Pedle ZelnipTo add further weight to the 10 hour theory resetting on Friday: I've been playing a few matches a day all week and got nothing until yesterday (Saturday) when I got a painted item, and an uncommon topper. Today (Sunday) I got my certified item.
Posted by Pedle Zelnip on 24 Jul 16 at 22:15
hunterIVHow do you AFK grind in this game? Doesn't it boot you from matches if you are idle?
Posted by hunterIV on 26 Jul 16 at 05:41

capicawlI've played 1 game every day for 2 weeks and haven't gotten an item yet. It's bad enough it's random, but to put a damn item cap after 10 hours of play is completely ridiculous.

Posted by BlinkFandangoII on 25 Aug 16 at 04:48
BlinkFandangoIIIt finally popped, I have been playing almost every day for two months and it just popped randomly after a match. I guess the only advice is to keep playing and hope it eventually comes up.

trollmeimasianDid they patch this yet with the new update?
Posted by trollmeimasian on 09 Sep 16 at 00:35
J2B9Yeah so with Trading it'd be great if someone with a painted item would be willing to trade it to me.i can then give it back or pass it on so we can make this easier. Assuming it works of course
Posted by J2B9 on 09 Sep 16 at 07:45
White WyvernThat would be helpful, wondering if that could be possible with certified times also, or is that too much ?

I have a feeling that you will stilll have to collect them through playing matches though.
Posted by White Wyvern on 09 Sep 16 at 08:52
J2B9I don't see how either wouldn't work. Though a certified item would still require leveling it up but at least you'd have it. I have a certified item for saves.
Posted by J2B9 on 09 Sep 16 at 10:17
D3LTAI tested this last night. Certs work. Didn't have any luck with the painted one though. Will hopefully try again soon.

Posted by D3LTA on 09 Sep 16 at 22:52
J2B9Great! I was playing yesterday and unlocked a painted item but got no achievement so i didn't know, but it popped when I loaded it up today. They've added 7 items with the painted feature so better chance of earning one.

Hey All,

I was struggling with this achievement for ages but believe i've finally cracked it through a combination of all solutions posted on the internet and seeing so many comments about people unlocking after they had a second painted item - Try this out!

Potential Solution To Bug:
Note: You will need someone else with 10 minutes and 2 painted items for this method to work

Firstly, Get your achievement hunting sidekick to trade you one painted item without you trading anything back in return. Then, equip the item and head into any online game. If it doesn't unlock immediately after the trade, or after completing the game with the equipped item, hard reset your Xbox (Press and hold the X on the console down for 10 seconds) with the item still equipped.

Restart your Xbox and grab hold of your achievement hunting sidekick again so they can trade you their second item; without you trading anything in return. Achievement popped up immediately after I had the second item in my inventory with my painted tires still equipped on my car. If this doesn't work straight away I would recommend repeating the process or just keep trading back and forth until it does pop-up. Always keep one painted item equipped however!

Let me know if this works and I'll spread the word.

Cheers.

MacWhyteGot my achievement about 24 hours after I received a painted item from a friend. Didn't unlock after the trade or completing several matches. However, switching profiles at the main menu and then switching back to my profile unlocked it immediately.

Hope this helps anyone else experiencing this frustrating glitch.

el tuaya argDownvote because you do not get the achievement if you receive the painted item via trading. it must be earned post match.

Tia1989III have not traded, just earned items from playing. Must have had about 5-6 painted items...still not unlocked. Will try equipping one later see if that works

TopherXPwnsUgh. I made it a point to unlock all the regular stuff in bot matches, played a few dozen matches online and never once got any certified or painted items. This is ridiculous. Only things I've gotten from the games I've played today were Bunny Ears and an Easter Egg topper.

The Batman IRLThis is the last achievement and I've been playing an hour each night for the past few weeks and not unlocked a painted item, 4 Crates and a load of Uncommon toppers, no painted.

SukottoI’ve put in nearly 70 hours now, still no painted or certified. Convinced this is bugged for me.

Juicy PlumbsAnyone fancy trading then trading back would be highly appreciated 👍 although I am enjoying the game a lot and bust most the achievements out within 5 hours so don’t mind it being boosted or just regular play 😊 GT: King of kingsjc
