Avalanche at the Ski Resort
Shoot down any three trees on one side and an avalanche will occur. This works good when people are by the trees.
Bonus Cars and Maps
There are 4 secret cars: The School Bus, The Manta, The Semi-Truck, and the "UFO" Van.

You will most likely encounter these vehicles while playing on the maps against the computer, and in Arcade mode you can pick to play against them... But being able to use them is a different story. You must first go to Options and then to Game Status... If you haven't beat the game with anyone yet, all the people's faces will be black and white. This is a Tekken-style "secret". See how there is a sort of chain with the characters an then empty slots and a bigger empty slot... Well, to get that first empty to slot, you must beat it with the 2 characters that it is connected to... Once you get the 2 secret characters in the top "chain" and beat it with them, you get the secret map. The bigger "slot" in the top "chain".

Do the same thing with the bottom "chain" and you will get the other secret map and the 2 other secret characters. Something special MAY happen once you have UNLOCKED everything, but that isn't a guarantee.

Change the Soundtrack
If you'd like to listen to something different, replace the Vigilante 8 CD with your favorite music CD after you've started a level.

Playing Tip
Choose to be the UFO on the secret base level. Go into the top secret area(the place where all the lasers shoot you.) Start at one end of the big building and drive straight through. If you shoot above the missle launcher a missile comes out and shoots your targeted opponent. You can do this as many times as you want at either end.
Roadkill Mines - Sticky Blue Orb
To activate this attack press Left-Right-Down-MachineGun. This costs only two mines.

Note: The sticky blue orb is invisible until you or an opponent gets close enough. These mines hold you for about 10-15 seconds before detonating. You can get away only if you are driving at top speed in one of the three fastest cars.

Secrets
On the ski level go to the bottom of the hill and enter the lodge doors, your car will get onto the lift and it will take you to the top of the mountain. This works the other way as well.

In the Las Vegas level you can find the blimp flying over, watch where it lands then enter the door that opens. It will take off and allow you to fly it over the city, get over a building and wait until it drops you on the roof.

In the airplane graveyard you can drive your car between the flight tower and electric polls. The flight towers are located at each corner of the level, they are the towers with the flag on the roof. This will cause the B-52 bombers to come out and bomb your opponents.

In the farm level you can shoot the valves beside the water canal, then a huge wave will go through the canal damaging any car trapped in the canal.

In the secret military level you can shoot the ladders beside the stealth bombers, then go over to where the satelitte dishes are located and drive by the red and green lights to make the bombers hit your opponet.

On the hover dam level you can hit the switch in front og the dam by the water to make an electric burst of energy go through the water zapping your opponent.

In the Canyonland level, get in the middle of the circle of rocks. A gold beam will come down and teleport you elsewhere.

On the level Sand Factory at one of the load things that a truck would pull in to load sand in the back of it you can shoot at one of the poles with the machine gun only once. An elevator will lower and you can get on it. This is an easy way to get on the upper levels. Search around for the loader!

On the snow resort level shoot 3 large trees to cause an avalanche! Boulders will start to roll down the slopes!

Special Attacks
Each weapon has two secret moves. The manual tells you one and these are the other ones.

Interceptor Missiles: Halo Decoy

Up-Up-Down-Fire Machine Gun Cost: 2 Missiles

(This will cause any homing missles or special to follow your missles instead of you. Useful but not easy to pull off. This is one of the only ways to cause the Gamma Storm from Beezwax to miss!)

Bull's Eye Rockets: Stampede

Up-Down-Up-Fire Machine Gun Cost: 1-5 Rockets

(This shoots up to 5 of your rockets in quick succesion. They don't aim automaticly so most will miss unless your target is stationary: I.E. stalled or In a Bear Hug Mine. Also using this while spinning around is grea for multiple enemies.)

Sky Hammer Mortar: Turtle Turnover

Down-Down-Down-Fire Machine Gun Cost: 2 Shells

(Against a human opponent this is the bomb *hehehe* that's funny.. kinda.. Anyway. This will cause the opponents car to flip over on it's roof. The computer flips right back up. But some of the bigger cars take a while so it can be usefull.)

Bruiser Cannon: Cow Puncher

Down-Up-Down-Fire Machine Gun Cost: 2 Shells

(Ah yeah. This not only does a lot of damage in one hit it also throws the opponent for a loop. Well, it just pushes them back and sometimes will tip them over. Great fun if your opponent is on the side of a cliff.)

Roadkill Mines: Cactus Patch

Left-Right-Up-Fire Machine Gun Cost 1-6 Mines

(This is the only way to drop mines. They Bear Hug is great for slowing down someone. But since it does no damage I use it sparingly. This Will cause you to drop up to 6 mines in a area behind your car. If someone is following you they are guaranteed to hit at least one of them. And the best part is that unlike Twisted Metal 2, mines stay where you put them. So be careful. I've blown myself up because I forgot that I lined a turn with them.)

Also, these special moves work even if the weapon is not your selected weapon (think 3X wammys.) I've done it only once and my opponent was toast.

Special Attacks Tip
Having a problem entering special attacks with the analog controller? There is an easy way to solve this problem. Go to options. Go to controller one (or wichever controller you are using). Set the digital pad "up" button to "Accelerate" and set the "down" button to "brake". Now you can steer with the analog and enter most of the special atacks with the digital pad!
Turbos
To activate this code press up-up-up-machine gun.Costs one homing missle. When you do this a homing missile will latch onto the side of your vehicle and you will travel at the same speed as the missile.
Whirling Blades at Farm
When you go to the farm level shoot at the big windmill tower thingies. When they fall the blades on it will pop off and they will start to chase either you or the computer. Better run!
