In Wingsuit races you fall from a great distance away from your final destination. In order to get full five gears in this challenge you should adopt these two ways as flying through flying through all rings is not necessary.
You should try to aim for the Center, Try to fly through the red ring in the center of the white rin for more points and if it’s hard to reach at any red ring you can leave it, you don’t need to get every red ring.
- Staying low increases bonus points.
- Use tether to get speed boost if you are too close to the ground and slow.
- Don’t use parachute at all. It is prohibited.
- After completing the course you’ll still be in your wingsuit so pull the parachute to avoid hitting anything after seeing your rewards.
In this challenge, you need to race through the waypoints in order to get the gears. The number of waypoints remaining appears at the top of the screen, next to the amount of time that has elapsed.
After getting through the first checkpoint the race starts. Use this to your advantage by moving yourself further away from the first checkpoint, then building up extra speed before hitting it.
After completing the race, you’ll be in the same vehicle that you used in the race. So you can use it as a free Rebel Drop. Use speed boosts from gear modes to gain faster times with default vehicles suggested.
If you want to get good items, then capture a good vehicle in the class that’s the same at the race you’re struggling with, press square/X at the challenge menu. Any vehicle you’ve unlocked for Rebel Drops is available.
In air races you need to choose helicopter or planes depending on race. When flying planes use Square/X and Circle/B to turn. Steering this way is much easier. Manage your speed because you are in air and can miss some checkpoints and it result a few lost gears in your final rating. While flying a helicopter, keep an eye on your altitude. You can easily get too close to the ground while concentrating on moving forward.
Land Races send you down hills, around tight corners, and occasionally off jumps. Use Your Brakes. In the land races, using brakes at good time is the key to success. So use them wisely in order to avoid accidents.
Always try to reverse as far as the game will let you from the starting checkpoint before driving through it. In this way you can hit the starting line at much higher speed. While crossing a busy intersection, always pass cars on the trunk side. This prevents them from clipping your car as you speed by.
While taking corners, use standard brake L2/LT instead of the E-Brake Square/X. It allows you to accelerate much faster out of the turn.
Setting good times on Sea Races is heavily determined by the lines you draw to get from each objective. Try to take the most direct path possible. Once you’ve unlocked jumping in the Gear Mod menu, you can use it to jump over mines in the water. Speed boats and Jet Skis are pretty easy to find in the resort towns of Medici. So find them to increase your boat collection.
#3: Scrapyard Scramble
In this challenge you need to collect massive amounts of Bavarium and deposit it in a large silo.Before you start to collect Bavarium, connect your Bavarium Attractor to the vehicle you’ve picked. It will make easier to collect. Bavarium comes in two quality grades and collecting each quality rewards different points. But collecting only the good quality is not useful. Collect as much as you can.
Large quantities can be found in metal cargo containers. A close pass near one of the container’s ends rips the doors off and chunks of Bavarium begin to spill out. Once you’ve entered the pit, shut off the Attractor to drop all of the Bavarium before driving back out of the pit. Collecting enough Bavarium awards bonus number and you are granted a time bonus.
If you attach the Bavarium Attractor too far from the car, press L2/LT to bring it closer. If any enemies are chasing you, have them follow you into the pit, then let them fall down into the depths with the collected Bavarium.
#4: Crash Bomb
After hitting the gas in crash bomb car. There is no option to stop. You need to get to the objective marked on the map and blow up everything in the area surrounding it. The minimum speed to avoid exploding is marked as a small bar on the speedometer in the bottom-left corner of your HUD.
You need to get out of the car before hitting the target or you’ll be dead. This is not difficult just make sure your car is lined up for the perfect hit on the target as the amount of damage applied affects your score toward the gears at the end. Enemies start to chase you on the road. Hitting anything will slow you down so use your brakes to avoid hitting. Keep enemies vehicles behind you. If they catch you, they will stop you.
Be careful getting out of the car If you do it too close, you’ll be caught up in the blast. If you’re using your parachute to jump out of the car, make sure to turn away from the explosion. You can use a Crash Bomb car to explode something else other than your target. Vehicles with crash bombs do much more damage than the ones without.
