April Fools: Rocket League Plagued by Oversized Toppers

Oops, there seems to be a bug in the system that's given Rocket League a different kind of 'Big Head Mode.'


Anyone who has played Rocket League lately may have noticed what appears to be a developer mishap. Toppers are huge! And it's pretty noticeable. Check out what happened to poor Rocket League pro player Gabriel "CorruptedG" Vallozzi on Saturday.

After a brief period in which the developers ran around the office panicking, it appears that Psyonix has come out and made a statement in regards to the issue.

Most Battle-Car Toppers in Rocket League are currently stuck in an experimental ‘Embiggened Mode’ that appears to have been triggered by a specific numerical sequence found in the game's chronometer," Community Manager Devin Connors said on the Rocket League website. "We are working to address it, but our engineers seem to think that letting the chronometer run its cycle will likely clear everything up by tomorrow. In the meantime, please be aware that your favorite Hard Hat may look humongous, Mr. Hot Pepper will appear monstrous, and, yes, your Trucker Hat may be temporarily titanic."

The best advice is to simply roll with it and enjoy your comically oversized toppers. This issue might even be fixed before Rocket League's Tournaments Update.

But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
