Play as Bosses
Successfully complete the game once with any character. After Sweet Tooth is defeated, save the game and watch your character's ending sequence. All of the Bosses, including Crusher, Moon Buggy, Super Thumper, RC Car, Super Axel, Super Slamm, Super Auger, Minion, and Sweet Tooth will now be unlocked.

Bonus deathmatch levels
Successfully complete any tournament mode level, then save the game to a deathmatch mode level. Each completed tournament level will unlock a new deathmatch level.

Use the password for "The Carnival" level. Complete that level and save the game. After you see the wish, start a deathmatch and all the new levels will be unlocked.

Unlimited weapon
Use up all of your weapons except for the one to become unlimited. Then, use up that last weapon until you have none remaining. Then press [Right], [Left], [Down]x2 for the "Rear attack" special move. The last weapon fired will now be unlimited.

Soundtrack
Place the game disc in an audio CD player and play track two to hear music by Rob Zombie, Cirrus, Cypress Hill, Skold, Goulspoon, One Minute Silence, and various voice overs.

Play your own music
Start the game in tournament or death match modes. Press [Start] when the game begins. Remove the game disc and the game will freeze. Place the audio CD of your choice in the PlayStation to continue the game. Note: Do not replace the game disc with another PlayStation game.

Press [Start] during game play. Replace the game disc with an audio CD of your choice. Wait for the PlayStation to load the CD. Resume game play to hear the music from the CD. Note that this will randomly select a song and the game disc must be replaced before changing levels.

Special moves:

Freeze: [Left], [Right], [Up]x2
Hyperspace: [Up]x2, [Down]x2
Invisibility: [Down]x2, [Up]x2
Jump: [Up]x2, [Left]
Massive attack: [Up], [Down], [Up], [Down], [Up]
Rear attack: [Right], [Left], [Down]x2
Rear freeze: [Left], [Right], [Down]x2
Rear massive attack: [Up], [Down], [Up], [Down]x2
Shield: [Up]x2, [Right]

Defeating Sweet Tooth
Collect as many Freeze Bombs and Remote Bombs as possible, then get on the tent. Set a Remote Bomb and a Freeze Bomb down and wait until Sweet Tooth gets on the tent. Freeze him, blow him up with remote bomb, then hit him with your special. If you get caught in his special in the process, just press [Up], [Up], [Down], [Down] and you will usually break out of it.

Press [Up]x2, [Right] to use the shield when the special attack hits you, then quickly run and attack Sweettooth with your best special. It is easier if you use Minion and Sweet Tooth to defeat him.

Try using remote weapons by Freeze first, then Bomb. When caught in his special, put on your Shield or Hyperspace. His special will not find you if you are invisible.

Utilize far away attacks, and stay near to places where you can get to health. If he hits you with his special, press [Up]x2, [Down]x2 to teleport. Also, utilize freezing.

Go through the bubble to the top of the smaller tent, then lay out three Proximity Mines. Get away from them, but do not drive off the tent. Sweet Tooth will drive through the bubble to try to get to you, and get blown into the sky. After that, he will die.

Defeating Slam and Auger
Try to get near a ledge or save many weapons. Push them off the ledge or destroy them away with weapons.

Defeating the Construction Yard Boss
Simply stay away from his special attack.

Defeating the Neon City Boss
His special attack is like Sweet Tooth's. Try hitting him with long range missiles and freezing him as much as possible.

Defeating the Road Rage Boss
Just stay away from the front of his car where he shoots fire. Use a turbo if you are engulfed.

Defeating the Oil Rig Bosses
Since they both have specials that can only hit you when you are in front of them, stay away from that side of them. If caught up in their special, use hyperspace by pressing [Up]x2, [Down]x2 to escape. They usually do not gang up on you if you focus on one at a time. Make them chase you to keep them apart.

Defeating Minion
Use the hit and run tactic to defeat Minion without using the "God mode" or "Sweet Tooth" codes.

Running is a big option, but if you like to ride instead, stay near (right next) to him. This will make it harder for him to hit you with his special. Stay to the side; because his tank is so big it takes a wide turns and will give you an opportunity to attack. Run when health is needed and always utilize freezing.

Defeating various Bosses
Try saving your strongest weapons for the Boss fights. Use lightning and the MIRV or Rain2 missiles will do a lot of damage.

Drive up walls
The Microblast car (and possibly others) can drive up walls. Aim your car at a wall, stand back a short distance, then turn on your turbo and jump at the wall. You should be able to drive up the wall. If not, try hitting the wall at an angle. You can reach a lot of secret areas in the game by doing this.

Escape the fall to death
If Meter Maid strikes you or if you get hit by too many weapons and get thrown up into the air very high, press [Up]x2, [Down]x2 to escape falling to death. Note:Your energy bar needs to be at least half-way full.

Escape special attacks
If you get caught in Trash Man's or another character with a similar special attack from the front or back, freeze them.

Drive by remote and freeze bombs
If you drive by a car that is not moving or moving slowly, plant a remote or freeze bomb next to it. Keep driving and detonate it a second later. You will not be harmed by the freeze or explosion. This is the most effective way to use the bombs.

Proximity mine trap
Get the proximity mine power-up and place three of them in the same location. Reverse or teleport away. The next person to hit that location will be in a big surprise, as they will lose a lot of health and go flying. Note: Do not put more than three proximity mines there, or they will explode and damage you very badly. Another trick is to put the cluster of mines next to a gasoline tank. This will cause a big explosion.

Secret area in Construction Yard
Get through the teleport on top of the buildings. Destroy the box sticking out of the ground to reveal a hole.

Secret area in Neon city
Jump the ramp through the glass on top of the buildings. Blow out the left wall to reveal a bus stop.

Secret area in Road Rage
Find a building close to one of the streets and blow away the barricade and glass.

Secret area in The Bedroom
Destroy the boxes that are marked as gasoline.

Secret area in Amazonia 3000 B.C.
Go to the magnetic jump closest to the semi-pyramid with the partial health. Try shooting Power Missiles at the walls to the left of the jump. This secret area consists of a full health pickup and a huge acid pile.

Destroy the wall next to the green launch object.

There is a secret area at the bottom of the level (the white part with the Teleport) near the Arrow (to the left, around the corner). Keep shooting weapons and a tunnel will appear. Inside is a giant acid pool, a teleport, weapons though the teleport (a MIRV, Freeze Remote, and others), and a full health pickup.

Secret area in Oil Rig
On the bottom-most floor, make a left at the walkway leading to the teleport. Destroy the fence-like objects in the building.

Secret area in Minion's Maze
Near the middle of the level are four fences, all leading to the same place. Destroy those fences to find a basement with many extras.

Shoot the gates on the first floor of Minion's Maze to unlock an area with various power-ups.

Secret area in The Carnival
Use a napalm or remote bomb by the door with the skeleton to destroy the floor. Follow it down into the ghost house, make a left, and keep going into the corner to reach a brick wall. Destroy it, head down the hallway, and destroy the next wall to get by the roller coaster.

Facing the huge tent's entrance, go to the right to find a little box that is connected to the roller coaster. Destroy the floor near it to access a new secret area. This area can also be accessed by a brick wall in the tunnel leading to the ghost house.

Getting on the tent in The Carnival
There are two ways to get on the tent. The first method is to go into the teleporter next to the building and aim for the tent. Then, using turbo, go off the ramp and onto the tent. The second method is to get to the roller coaster. Go to the location where the tent is near on the highest point. Then, just drive/turbo off.

Clowns in The Carnival
Go in the tent and shoot the walls. There will be pictures of clowns there. Note: You can shoot it with machine guns.

Super jump at The Carnival
Go through the portal by the clown building. Turbo jump onto the next tent. Gather all the weapons at the tent's edge (one Rain Rocket, one MIRV, one Rain 2, one Homing Missile, one Fire Missle, Turbo, and remote mines. Go to the peak, get the Lightning, and line yourself up with the tent's peak facing the railroad tracks. Turbo to the end of the tent and jump. You will fly onto the railroad tracks, leaving the CPU cars with no way to reach you. Rid yourself of the train by using the Remote Mines. Slowly make your way to the lowest point near a closed door that you can shoot. Also gather the weapons on the tracks. Try to avoid the Full Life on the tracks unless you need it -- no other cars (including Sweet Tooth) can reach you from here. Once you reach the area with the door, spin to face the other cars. Use your Freeze to stop the cars, then bombard them with all your weapons. This method can be used to kill Sweet Tooth.

Mr. Grimm picture in Bedroom level
In Sweet Tooth's Bedroom level, you can see a picture of the old Mr. Grimm from Twisted Metal 3 on the wall.

Riding the bus in Neon City
Jump into the glass by using the ramp. Then, shoot the wall on the left with missiles or your machine gun. You will find a small "bus stop". Stand there and wait until the bus drives by. The bus will hover you into the air. The bus will "drop you off" automatically. This area consists of a full health pickup and a lightning pickup.

Neon City subway and roller coaster
Use Power Missiles to destroy the train that rides through the tunnels. When destroyed, you can get some more weapons. In the carnival, destroy the roller coaster to ride freely through. Failure to destroy these will cost you half or more of your energy.

Instead of playing target practice with power missiles, which do not work unless the target is hit right, and risk taking the loss of half your life by getting hit one of them, plant at least one proximity mine in the path of the trains. However, if you want to make sure it is destroyed or if you just want to leave a surprise for another player, then leave three or four.

Winning in Oil Rig
Stay in one area (a recommended location is near the only health pickup). Place Proximity Mines by the doorways and wait until cars enter. If possible, place a remote bomb that will push them off the edge and into an oily grave. You can use this strategy when fighting Super Auger and Super Slamm. If your are caught in their specials, use your Hyperspace and/or Shield.

The jump to the health dropped off by the plane can only be reached by using turbos or one of the teleports. If you take the jump and miss it and start falling, quickly press [Up]x2, [Down]x2 to teleport and prevent the loss of a life.

Drive to the helicopter landing pad where there is a partial health power-up. Lay three proximity mines on the front of the helicopter pad facing the ramp. Wait for someone to come off the ramp, and when they land they will be launched into the air. You can also do the same thing with remote mines. Another good technique for the helicopter pad involves Orbital. Launch onto it, then face the ramp you came off. Wait until someone is about to launch off, and if you can time it correctly, fire his special so that it will suck the car out of the air, freeze them, and send them plummeting to their death-- unable to do warp because they are frozen.

After defeating all other cars, go to the life platform. Place a Freeze Mine at the edge. Both Super Slamm and Auger will not make the jump; just detonate the bomb.

Extra items in Oil Rig
You can blow up the helicopter. After doing so there will be numerous weapons around the landing pad. Note: This takes some time.

Helicopter kill in Oil Rig
Go as close to an edge as possible. Next, try to get both the Bosses to come after you at the same time. When they use their specials on you, use Hyperspace. If timed correctly, Auger and Slamm will use each others specials on each other and get propelled off the battlefield. If you use Hyperspace too late, their attacks will stop and they can perform the Hyperspace move. Note: Do not do this on a lower floor or in a building.

You can destroy the helicopter by getting up on the landing pad. Wait until the helicopter is about to set down. then blast it with any missile, except the homing. After doing so, many weapons will appear on the pad.

Lightning bolt locations
Lightning bolts can be found in almost every level.

Neon City
Take the bus ride and it will drop you on another balcony. Break the balcony glass windows to reach a platform with some power-ups and a green jump.

Road Rage
Blow the wall away on the right of the building on the bottom of the steep hill to find various power-ups.

The Bedroom
Destroy the lamp while staying away from the walls and middle of the room. High ground is the safest place.

Amazonia 3000 B.C.
Jump the series of jumps to the teleport. There are many power-ups, including the lightning bolt, on that balcony. When detonating it, anything around that building will be zapped.

Oil Rig
Go through the teleporter on top of the red building that has the teleport inside of it.

Minion's Maze
Get all the way to the top in the middle to the white section to find a separate island. Use the jump to get over, and then grab it by using the thing that shoots you up. Detonate it from there to stay safe.

The Carnival
Go through the teleport next to the building, and use the ramp to get onto the tent (use turbos). The lightning bolt is all the way at the peak. It will zap everyone on the rollercoaster track. Try luring your opponents to that location, get off at the last moment, then detonate

Auto Lob location
Go to the following locations to find an Auto Lob.

Neon City
Follow the train tracks to the top and find a ramp to go off of. Do a ramp and the Auto Lob will be in there.

Road Rage
Find a crack in the wall near the hill. There will be a crack to the left or right of it. Shoot the crack open and find Auto Lob and other weapons.

The Bedroom
Destroy the boxes marked "Gasoline" you and go inside. Travel through reaching a big area. The Auto Lob will be there in this area.

Amazonia 3000 B.C.
Go through a series of ramps to a teleport. Go through it and land on a tower. Go around the tower without falling and you should find an Auto Lob.

The Oil Rig
Go through the teleport on the red building to land above the drill and next to the Auto Lob.

Minion's Maze
Go to the center of the level and destroy the gates to go down into an underground area with an Auto Lob.

The Carnival
Go to the gate to the roller coaster. Turn right and follow that path to an Auto Lob.
Extinguish Sweet Tooth's flame
Freezing Sweet Tooth will put out the flaming head on top of his car.

Escape from Sweet Tooth's special attack
Do a Hyperspace ([Up], [Up], [Down], [Down]) to escape Sweet Tooth's special attack.

Refill health with Meter Maid
If you are low on health with Meter Maid, get out your Special Weapon. While you are striking someone, hold [L2] and watch your health refill so you can get more energy.

Easy kill with Meter Maid
Enable the "Unlimited Specials" code. Then, use her special and hold [L2].

Enable the "Unlimited Specials", "Powerful Specials", and "Extra Fast Weapons" codes. Choose Meter Maid in any mode, and select your special weapon. Hold "Fire" + [L1]. Any other car nearby will be thrown in the air and die instantly, and you will gain a lot of life.

Super fire
Do not waste time firing one weapon at a time. By scrolling through the weapons and pressing [L2] + [R2], you will fire a large array of weapons that cause massive amounts of damage. Note: Empty all proximity mines before attempting this. It is best done in reverse when other car is pursuing.

Flaming acid
Shooting a napalm or any fire weapon onto the green acid results in a wave of fire through the green liquid that will engulf everyone on it.

Easier napalm or mortar attack
To easily hit an enemy with a napalm or a mortar, just simply go directly in front of, or ram into, your opponent and shoot a napalm or a mortar. If you are close enough, you will hit your opponent immediately when you shoot.

See through walls
Get as close as possible and side by side to a wall to get a chance to see right through it.

Neon City tracks
Staying to the left or right of the train in Neon City is safe. Being on the right track of the rollers coaster keeps you safe from the train.

Using the crane
When in a level with a crane, enter it, pick someone, up and drop them in the fire where the three flames are seen. Do not let them hit the ground. Pick them up again and repeat until they explode.

Pictures of the little clowns
Go to the Carnival level. Ride around until you see a small tent. Blow up the entrance. Go inside and shoot at various parts of the room. If you hit the correct location, a clown will appear. There are three clowns at front wall and one on both side walls.

Extinguishing fires
Use the turbo when on fire to rid yourself of it.

Instant death
Note: A fast car is highly recommended. Get one proximity icon and a remote bomb icon. Go to the area you wish to lay these items and come to a dead stop. Quickly lay the three proximities. You should run out of proximities and will automatically switch to the remote bombs. Lay the remote bomb and turbo forward to get out of there. If not, you will explode and die. Turn around and wait for someone to make contact. When a proximity blows up, detonate the remote bomb. This works best in a narrow passageway and it will only work if the three proximities and the remote bomb are laying directly on each other. This is also a great way to commit kamikaze to another CPU or player if you stay there a second longer,

Fly high as Calypso
Enable the "God mode" code and use a Nuke. Blow it up on yourself and use jump quickly. You will be blasted very high. Note: If you go too high or exit the arena, you will die even though God mode is active.

Glitch: Sweet Tooth hair
Use Sweet Tooth and go to Neon City. Use the bus, and when you are flying around, your hair will be floating about an inch to an inch and a half above your head.

In player select mode, Sweet Tooth's fire hair is made of metal, but during game play, it is replaced with real fire.

Glitch: Hide in Minion's maze
Go to the only gate that is next to the green acid. Shoot it and go inside. The proximity mines should be on your right at the bottom of the ramp. Do not break any other gates. If done correctly, no other car (including Minion) will be able to find you.

Glitch: Fly off level through corner
Choose Sweet Tooth and one other character in multi-player mode. Enable the "Unlimited weapons" and "God mode" codes for both players. Continuously shoot Sweet Tooth's special while the other driver drives into a corner using turbo. In time the other driver will go flying out of the level. Note: This will not work in Oil Rig, special levels, or any other levels with cliffs.
