It's time to take a look at the Dominus HitboxRocket League has six different body types, or hitboxes. Each type has its own unique advantages and disadvantages, individual stats, and related cars. In this series, we break down each hitbox, look at their characteristics, and the cars available for them. This time, we take a look at the Dominus Hitbox. It's time to dive in...

Hitboxes in Rocket League are an interesting phenomenon. Prior to the Anniversary Update, or Patch v1.35, each vehicle had its own properties. To better balance Rocket League, Psyonix decided to introduce six specific hitboxes that all new cars had to fit into. We've already taken a look at the Octane Hitbox, and with Season 3 featuring the Tyranno, it's time to dive into the Dominus Hitbox!


Rocket League Dominus Hitbox: Dimensions

  • Length: 127.9268000
  • Width: 83.2799500
  • Height: 31.3000000

Why are dimensions important? The Dominus is a tad lacking when it comes to height. However, what it lacks in height, it makes up for in length. Since the Dominus Hitbox is so long, it offers better reach and is ideal for defense, as it is better able to make last-second goal saves. Oh, and it can be fabulous for fast-flicks. Enjoy!

Rocket League Dominus Hitbox: Handling, Height, & Inclination

Rocket League Dominus Hitbox: Handling

  • Standard: 2.336
  • Boost: 2.035

When it comes to the Dominus Hitbox's handling, you will find that when you are not boosting, its handling is more or less the same as the Octane Hitbox. The difference, though, is that when boosting, its handling is subtly better. That means, in practice, that the Dominus's turning radius is somewhat tighter when boosting, helpful for fast turns.

Rocket League Dominus Hitbox: Ground Height

  • Ground Height: 45.152540

Rocket League Dominus Hitbox: Inclination

  • Inclination: -0.97°

The combination of the Dominus's height, inclination, and handling makes it a pretty useful vehicle in Rocket League. It is great for fast-saves, as its length gives it a little more reach than a shorter hitbox like the Octane. Its length is the main appeal of the Dominus Hitbox, since its handling is very similar to the Octane. That being said, the Dominus Hitbox does feature the Tyranno, so that's certainly a plus!

Also, keep in mind that these numbers might not be 100% correct, and may change with future patches and updates.
