When you get a missle, hold R2+down and press circle. This works about
75% of the time when done correctly. Also, you can fire bombs backward
By pressing down+circle, and fire potions forward by presing up+circle.
Whenever you go over a bump, push the R1 or L1 button to get a little boost.
The higher you go, the more boost you will get.
This really helps in a race.
There is a shortcut in Dragon Mines!
ONLY USE THIS SHORTCUT IF YOU HAVE AN AKU AKU/UKA UKA MASK, UNLESS YOU LIKE TO GET RUN OVER!
Seriously now, don't use it without some form of protection as it involves going over the railway. OK, now on to the shortcut!
When you see the first railway line (and maybe a cart going alone it) make a direct turn right so that you are on the railway, just drive across and get off at the wooden arches...
Here are a few handy shortcuts to help you beat your friends/enemies.
Polar Pass: You all probably knew this one, but after you exit the green cavern with the seals, there is a metal wall. By correct timing and/or some form of boost, you can jump the wall entirely.
Sewer Speedway: Shortly after the first jump with the two pipes and the turbo ramp, you'll see a long path with a large hole high in the right wall. You can use a mask, turbo boost, or power slide to help reach it, or you can try gaining speed and pressing R1 right before jumping. The shortcut skips a long turn for you and cuts off half of the track.
Oxide Station: Remember the area with two turbo pads leading to a ramp shortly before the big jumps? Well, you can avoid those and much more by veering a bit to the left on the ramp. NOTE: Do not use Super Turbo code for this, as you will go too far.
In Crash Cove, around the first corner is a ramp and then after the ramp, there is a pool of water. Towards the end of the pool, go left and you will drive over a bump in the water. Use the bump to give you extra height in order to get onto the ledge. (the one that you need to get onto in order to get the letter)
Hope I Helped.
SHORTCUT: Tiger Temple
And the end of the 1st place with the flamethrowers about 3-5 secs you should see a sort of big glass window shoot it and it will open for you and by the way it includes Aka Aku + Uka Uka masks
Crash cove:hit the bump in the water rate:medium
Coco park:run across the hill rate:easy
Ripper roos tube:between of the bones rate:medium
Papus pyramid:from the big steps, jump to the left on the first step rate:medium
Jump onto platform where you found the 'C' rate:hard
The last jump by the plant eaters, jump to the right. Rate:medium
Sewer speedway:when you start inside the sewer jump a hill into a small bridge jump of the bridge to the right.rate:medium
(well that is much as I remember, post some more if I missed some)
If you're sick of entering codes repeatedly, then enter the codes for the character you want. Then make them complete cup races. When it asks you to save, say yes. Some you may have to do twice.
Whether they are long or short more than likely you'll either be able to cut across it with a shortcut or be able to powerslide through it.
Cut through the cave near the end, it's a short cut.
There is no cheat for beating oxide.
I played the whole game in Adventure mode with no short cuts and no cheats and I beat him!
You have to race twice first after the trophy race and then the final challenge after the gem and relic races.
You can beat him!!
to get ripper roo,at the title screen press right,circle,circle,down,up,down,right
this may take a few tries,so take your time and make sure you do it right.
Go to adventure mode on the main menu and ride around doing races and as you do races, you will unlock places to go in.
Don't think it's easy though, because the characters that's lock might be hard.
Polar pass:When you come up to the three jumps get an uka on the first turbo pad jump straight over to the next part of the track it shold put you quite a way in front.
Hot air skyway:After the big jump when you come up toa railing then a littel hill go to the bottam then turn around drive up and jump over the fence it is good for cathing up oxide on the time trial.
1. When Shooting a missile try not to shoot them around corners because they will just curve and hit the wall.
2. If a missile is coming at you and you have a TNT Crate, Nitro Crate, or either potions wate untill the triangles are in the center of the square and then drop it.
If you don't have either of those you can use an AKU AKU mask or an UKA UKA mask.
3. If you don't have those you're toast.
I hope this helped you!!!
alright, this is really cool, in CTR,papus pyramid get a mask, but don't use it wait till' yuo get to the last turn before you finish a lap when you get close to the end of the wall activate it at the end of the wall and do a 180* degree turn to the other side it takes alot of practice but when you get it helps!
In "Crash Cove" the big ramp by the water, leads to a shortcut! Go on the ramp and jump in thehole in the stone on your left, then after you go through the hole you'll come out of the waterfall!
If you want to shoot a cannon ball or a bottle (red or green) forwards, just PRESS and HOLD Up and 0 to release the bottle/cannon ball forwards.
On tiger temple on the platinum relic race(adventure) you need to get every single box to cut 10 seconds of your total time. If you notice, there is a open tunnel just before the last turning drive trough it to get the 2 last boxes.
If you want to get the CTR token on tiger temle, the same tunnel has to be used to claim the 'R'. This time it's closed but you need a aku aku mask or a uka uka mask to get in, or a homing missle.
To help you speed up plus getting more powerful power ups collect wumpa fruit.
They are usually in striped boxes but some will just appear on some
Here it is, same as the other hints after the skinny tunnel, after the 2nd or 3rd turbo pad(the people who know the secret) there's a little bump/ramp before the 1st massive ramp.
Time this carefully when you try and jump off the little bump/ramp and go left at the same time as jumping of the bump/ramp.
Note: This very handy for Timetrial mode
In the previous "Stats of the Characters" hint I had submitted, I have written the accelerations of Dingodile and Tiny as 3 and Papu Papu as 4. These are actually 2 and 3, respectively.
If you jump up to the bridge, you can cut across, it's a short cut.
BEWARE there is one placebo for unlocking oxide beware ALSO this WILL ONLY work on RCPD version of the game. try to avoid getting the platinum or PAL version of the Game.
One will give 3 characters of your choosing the same stats as Nitrus Oxide or on the pal version it will unlcock either N.Trophy or Pinstripe or the scrapbook.
If you have the version that I'm talking about use one of cheats an the stats are yours. There is one proper cheat but it is way too complicated you will find it out eventually.
If it doesn't work contact back on here on SC.
Hope I helped.
Yours truly .
When you have a TNT on your head keep tapping R1 and it will the TNT will jump off !
If you don't know this than turn off the PlayStation because you're not
That smart. When uka uka/ aku aku (the good and bad mask incase your
Really dumb) tell useless info rapidly hit square and triangle to make
Get out of your face.
