Every shortcut you can use in Rocket Racing to shave time of your runs.

Rocket Racing is Fortnite’s newest game mode developed by Psyonix, the creators of Rocket League. Like Rocket League, Rocket Racing is a fast-paced, competitive game. Although, this one is centered around racing cars rather than using them to play a version of football.

You’ll require quick reflexes to avoid obstacles and make dangerous turns as you race rocket-powered cars around a variety of dynamic maps.

Furthermore this game mode has its own ranked system. Here, you’ll progress through various tiers while unlocking new maps and facing increasingly tougher opponents. To climb the ranks of Rocket Racing, you’ll need to learn its maps and the shortcuts within them.

Shortcuts can take various forms, such as hidden boost pads and alternatives, and can give you an edge over your opponents by significantly reducing the time taken to complete a lap.

Most lower-rank maps do not have any shortcuts, but as you progress, you will find increasingly elaborate shortcuts.

This guide lists every shortcut we’ve found in Fortnite Rocket Racing so far.

There are several speed boosters that are only on the top tracks of this map, so make sure you use you press Air Dodge while holding Up / Forward to always take advantage of the top tracks, especially during the tunnel section.

This track has two sets of boost pads very early. Jump right before the pillar, lightly use your thrusters, and then Air Dodge to drive on the left wall. Try to drive on every wall on this track, as they will have boost pads.

However, when you come across the forked path, make sure to go to the right as it has two speed boosts instead of one on the left path.

The first shortcut in this track is through the waterfall. You can jump and use your thrusters to go through it. However, this route is situational and ineffective if you don’t have a turbo available.

Next, as you reach the tunnel section, jump and use your thrusters to reach the top of the tunnel. Alternatively, you can jump and dodge up inside the tunnel to attach yourself to the ceiling. Both these routes have speed boosts so it will come down to your preference.
