Skate 3 Hints for Xbox 360
Also on: PlayStation 3
Once you've completed a challenge, you can warp back to it but not start it. For instance, the challenge 'Thorax Crunch' is on the top of a crane. You can warp to it, and you'll be on the crane. This can help with achievements or having fun.
Need to get on a roof? Go into object dropper and drop a slide (in ramps). Place it, then run to the top. Set a session marker. Run back down, drop another slide, place it upside-down on the first one. Drop one right-side up on top of that one. Go to your sesh and you should be on top of the top slide. Repeat as many times as you wish.
If you don't have enough room to get three pushes in before you jump, a sprint to caveman gets more speed.
Get off you board, run (hold a), then jump on (y). You'll be faster than 3 pushes.
To get this skateable meat lump, complete the Hall of Meat challenge "Thorax Crunch".
You do not need to complete all challenges.
If you need to hit a ledge/rail that's too high, or whatever, you can get off you board and run towards the ledge. When close, jump and get back on your board. You'll land in a grind, and be closer to owning that challenge.
If you're having trouble grinding, try approaching the rail at an angle, then ollieing (Spelling? Lol). In mid air, just a few alterations are needed to land your board on the rail.
