Crash 'n' Burn Hints for PlayStation 2
Also on: XBox
Well, I was really bored with CNB, When I found out a excellent way to farm money and EXP super quick, about 5000 XP and 1500 Cash in 2 minutes! So heres how...
Go create a game, make it last Man standing, On Alcatraz Island - (Sports only is reccomeneded)
Once the game starts instead of joining in the circle, back away and start racing the track in circles. The rest of the cars will start to follow you, try to do SHARP Turns, as the cars AI Isn't smart/good enough to make the turn, and they will take a INSANE amount of damage. Not counting the rest of the cars that crash into them. In about 45 seconds the First car should crash. Then the bloodbath will begin, about every 3 seconds a car will crash. In the final 5 If you have enough health left, (1/4 Or more of your bar) Then you can try to eliminate the rest of the cars by yourself, it's reccomened that you aim for the ones that are on fire, because they're on critical Health.
There is also another way of doing this. Start up running man on a circle map. Get the running man and run in a circle, make it as tight as possible with sharp turns. Cars should start wrecking, and there should only be about 10 or so left after a minute. And by that time you should have at least 30 seconds left on the running man. I prefer the Last man standing strategy but this one works too. The final strategy for CASH ONLY REPEAT CASH ONLY Is to do this..
Make a match, on Miami X1 (Reverse or Normal you pick) On KAMIKAZE! (Sports only is ALSO Reccomended)
Start up the match, and Stay in the front. You may think this is crazy, but if your in the front, you will get out of the wreck in the thin tunnel. If your in the back, you might as well restart. If your in the middle, then your done for.
PLEASE USE THE LAST MAN STANDING STRATEGY AS it's BY FAR THE BEST!!
Sometimes When a car Wrecks it will leave a oil slick behind it, Oil Slicks mean several things, Good and Bad, And Can Change The Whole Race By One Wreck. Oil Slicks Can be Useful If you have nitrous on you, because you can light it up just as you go in the oil slick, it will light up into a trail of flame. There are TWO Types of Oil Slicks, Dark and Light. Light ones can be light up, However, Dark is more tricky, and I can't confirm that they can be light up too. Dark is more slippery but can easily be avoided, seeing how most wrecks are on the side of the road. But if you ever encounter one........
If on a sharp turn, running into them will slide and drift your car across the turn, preventing you from running into the wall... If you have a bit of nitrous on you, Go Ahead and Light it up, blurring peoples sight and causing damage when passed through.
If your in a small turn, or if theres no turns ahead, Avoid it as best as you can. They can cause major problems and make you lose your place, it's tough to deal with them, so try your best!
How to Prevent Them
Most Oil Slicks are caused from a crash from behind, so, Head on collisions, and Side ones, can usually prevent oil slicks, as they only occur when the Car is sliding.
Thats all I have for now. Thanks For Reading =)
Yeah, I know, winning a race feels great. But apart from the massive amount of experience points that you get by winning, you do not earn a lot of money to buy parts with. If you want to buy all of the parts that are available in the shop, then you are going to have to earn more money every race. I can help you do that.
There are several ways that you can earn extra money in a race, some are hard, some are easy, but they all work.
The first way to earn more money is to wreck as many cars as you can while doing the race. There are different ways that you can wreck cars, just know that you need to wreck them to get more money. You can smash them into the wall, grind them up against the wall, bump into the back of their car and give them a little push. You could also use Nitrous if you have any, and do a super wreck on them.
The second way to get more money is to stay ahead of everyone else, and pass the lap marker first. If you made the fastest lap, it will tell you once you drive over the checkered line. If you stay in first place throughout the entire race then chances are that you have been getting the fastest laps for the entire race.
The third way to get more money is to not get wrecked. The longer that you stay alive in a race, the more that you will get when it's over. I am not saying that you cannot be hit, or that you have to finish the race in perfect condition. I am saying that if you finish the race, but draw it out so you it is longer, then you will get more money in the end.
Hope this helps.
When you first play the game, then you'll notice that you can only pick two cars types of vehicles, the trucks, and the vans. Which while cool, they both kinda suck. To unlock The muscle cars, and the sports cars you must compete in a LOT of races, and mini games to raise your exp bar. When Your exp bar is on level 7, then You will unlock the muscle cars, and when you get it to level 10 you will unlcok the sports cars.
Then you can make a really fast car, and give everybody else really, really, slow vans, and beat them in a second!
On every race, and on every level there is an easy way to get into the lead, and win. In a race, all the cars will either go to the left side of the track, leaving a nice, wide open space on the right side, or they'll go on the right side, and leave a open space on the left side.
Sometimes they will all move over to both sides, and you can go through a narrow path through the middle. Whether this was intentional or if it just happens I don't know. I do know that it makes it kinda easy to win, and that you should exploit this ' cheat. '
When there are only 3-5 cars left, your probably going be hurt, and almost completely wrecked. If that's the case, then one of the best things to do is drive around in a small circle. Go in a circle, and try to weave around nearby crashed cars. Use them as obstacles.
Another way is to get on one side of the arena( if you have enough health, and time.) Then drive to the other, and right before you hit the wall make a sharp turn, and they will hopefully keep going, and hit the wall.
You have to upgrade your pickup/car a few times.
In the last man standing race. Everyone is in a circle, then they all rush into the middle, resulting in a huge crash. Too survive longer do this. When they all rush forward, hang back and don't move. They will all crash, and have lower health while you still have full health and turbo.
If you want to single a car out this is a good method. When the thing started, pick your target, then use your turbo to rush thorugh the middle, and slam into him. If done right, the car will go flying across the arena, and lose more than half it's health.
An interesting thing about this game is the kamikazee races. Too survive longer, when the race starts drive along the wall. Close enough so that your not in the lane, but far enough so you won't grind against it.
Then drive either slow, or fast but not fast enough to hit the walls when turning. This will increase your chances alot.
Not a popular game, but at least there will be some hints if someone happens to drop by...
If you have your turbo( blue bar) filled then go by a huge black mess on the ground( oil slick) and use your turbo right as you ride through it. It should go up in flames, catch other cars on fire, and can be used to hinder their sight.
