Rocket League: Octane & Fennec Hitbox Type Explained

Rocket 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, let's look at the Octane Hitbox, also known for being the same hitbox as our favorite vehicle: the Fennec!

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. This is where the fabulous Fennec comes in, as the Octane hitbox fits perfectly around it, something that many players absolutely love. Anyway... let's get on with things!

Rocket League Octane Hitbox: Dimensions

  • Length: 118.0074000
  • Width: 84.1994100
  • Height: 36.1590700

But why are dimensions important? Well, in the case of the Octane Hitbox, it has a shorter length, but it is the highest car. That means that the Octane has better ball control when hitting from the front or the side of the vehicle's hitbox.

Rocket League Octane Hitbox: Handling, Height, & Inclination

Rocket League Octane Hitbox: Handling

  • Standard: 2.336
  • Boost: 2.031

So, the higher the number here, the better (tighter) the turning radius is. Thus, when compared to other vehicles in Rocket League, the Octane Hitbox has a pretty middle-of-the-road turning radius. That makes the Octane Hitbox rather hit-and-miss when it comes to its handling. In other words: it's zippy, but not the zippiest. If that sounds like something you would enjoy, then the Octane Hitbox is for you.

Rocket League Octane Hitbox: Height

  • Ground Height: 48.469040

Rocket League Octane Hitbox: Inclination

  • Inclination: -0.55°

The combination of the Octane Hitbox's height, inclination and handling make it a pretty reliable vehicle in Rocket League. It has good ball control, is relatively zippy on the field, and is not overly high. As we said at the beginning of this article, the Octane Hitbox is great for ball control from the front or side of the car. 

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