      Enter the subway tracks In Hong Kong, then jump on the train and remain there. When you go up through an archway the message "Free Train Ride" will appear accompanied by a loud bang. Your health and special items will be recharged.

      Ride the Subway in Hong Kong

      When the subway starts coming around, drive in front of it, lining yourself with the subway's path. Do it someone on the track where it's flat and easy to jump, and if you time a jump correctly, you can get on top of the subway.

      Things to destroy in Los Angeles

      The Hollywood sign will blow up after one hit from a power missile. The small bridge will explode after one remote bomb. The glass to both tunnels will break open. The water jets that shoot water can be blown up. The buildings near them can also be destroyed.

      Shoot the box labeled Twisted Metal with your machine guns to reveal a remote bomb.

      Things to destroy in Moscow

      Blow up the ramps by going to the purple taser beam. Place a remote bomb in the exact center and run. It will blow up all the ramps. Go up the ramp and shoot a napalm at the object hovering in the middle to blow up the remaining ramps. The pictures on the side of the fence all will burn except the picture of the ice cream truck.

      Things to destroy in Paris

      Use the transporter to beam up, then plant a remote bomb at the Eiffel Tower. Immediately use your turbos, then detonate the bomb.

      Things to destroy in Amazonia

      Shoot a missile at the large statue to reveal a tunnel leading underground. Shoot another missile at the end of the tunnel to reveal the exit.

      Go to the large stone structure (not the statue). Look carefully to find two hidden doors. After destroying the door on the right, shoot out the candles with your machine guns to find ammo.

      Things to destroy in New York

      Shoot the Statue of Liberty until the torch lights in the New York stage. Then, shoot it until its clothes explode to see the statue in a bikini. Continue to fire at the statue to eventually destroy it.

      The top of one building has a silver box. Destroy it and fall through to find a hidden pool inside the building.

      Things to destroy in Holland

      Fire one or two missiles to destroy the windmills.

      Things to destroy in Hong Kong

      Keep shooting at the railroad cars in the tunnel to destroy them after a certain amount of time passes.

      Ramming hit

      Select Minion as a character and enable the "Invincibility" code for infinite turbos. Turn on the turbo and ram into the other cars.

      Flying over Paris

      Select Twister as a character, enable the "Invincibility" code and play the Paris level. Destroy the Eiffel tower and drive down the ramp. Then, go left at the left walkway. Take another left and go to the edge of the building. Use a remote mine and ride the explosion into the sky. Use the turbo as soon as the mine detonates to take off.

      Leaving Los Angeles

      Select Twister as a character, enable the "Invincibility" code and play the Los Angeles level. Get on top of the tunnel that does not have the transporter. Drive to the very edge of the grassy area and place a remote mine at this location. Wait and ride the explosion. Use the turbo as soon as Twister leaves the ground to leave the level.

      Playing as Spectre

      Use your speed to get way from opponents, then come right back at them with long rang homing missiles. Speed and missiles make him a very effective character.

      The following strategy works best in Hong Kong and is useful when fighting Dark Tooth. Put some distance between you and your opponent and watch him on radar. When he is directly behind you, fire backwards with your special and homing missiles. Run away and repeat. Another good attack that can be used be all fast characters is to freeze your enemy, lay a remote bomb right next to him, get away, then detonate the bomb.

      Defeating Minion

      Destroy one of the stone blocks the covers the tunnel entrance on the Lava stage. Once inside, turn around and wait for Minion to approach the entrance. Then, stay in the tunnel but fire napalm outside. Minion will not enter the tunnel. The best place to perform this trick is at the base of the ramp. Once his power is depleted, go out with full power and use any weapon to destroy him.
