If you're looking to team up with friends in Rocket League, they need to know your Epic ID. Oddly enough, it can't be found in-game – instead, you'll need to log into your Epic Games account through a browser.

Luckily, your username can be used instead of your Epic ID and quickly found in the menu. Follow the instructions below:


  1. Launch Rocket League.
  2. In the men's menu, navigate to the "Friends" tab at the bottom right of your screen.
  3. Your Epic account name and Rocket League username will be displayed at the top of the friends list.

  2. Click on your account name in the lower left corner of your screen.
  3. Select "Manage Account" from the left sidebar. A new browser window will open.

  2. Click on "Login", located at the top right. Enter your account credentials and click "Login" again.
