    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Grand Tour – Crazy Crater

    Payoff objective: Get 20,000 Spin Points
    Really easy on this track, there are alot of jumps you can spin off of and you only need to land 8 total spins.
    Bonus objective: Get 160,000 Drift Points
    Drift early, drift everything && hold it as long as you can after exiting each turn. You should get this one with only a couple tries. (or on your first try)


    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Grand Tour – Mt. Pain

    Payoff objective: Get 3,000 Max Speed Points
    Piece of cake, just hit all of the boost pads you can && use your turbo when you have it and you can get this before the 3rd lap.

    Bonus objective: Shoot 5 ModBots
    The easiest way to get this objective is to get the Sonic Cannon (Lvl2 Sonic Bomb). The explosion hits the modbots multiple times so 1 direct hit will count as 5. The modbot right after the moving platform is the easiest one to target.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Grand Tour – Fracture

    Payoff objective: Take All 3 Shortcuts
    The 3 shortcuts are near the end of the lap, so I recommend saving the middle path for last. It is the shortest of the 3 so you’ll want it on lap 3 when you have to get through quickly.

    Bonus objective: Sideswipe 3 Opponents On The Cliffside

    The cliffside is the ledge just before the shortcuts. Once your opponents take that corner it’s too late to get them. The easiest way to pull this off is to get ahead of the pack then wait on the bridge just before it for somebody to pass you. Then boost and pull up to the right of them to sideswipe as they start turning.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Grand Tour – Citadel Heights

    Payoff objective: Get 10,000 Road Points
    This one is actually really easy even though I didn’t get it in the video. Just take the long route enough. I took one too many shortcuts. =/

    Bonus objective: Get 4,000 Draft Points
    This will require you to stay behind for a little bit. All you have to do is follow close behind the other drivers. Straight roads work best for drafting so try to pull up behind someone when you’re on a long straightaway.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Grand Tour – Rumble Jungle

    Payoff objective – Get 15,000 Drift Points
    In this track there are 2 jumps where it is really easy to pull off a 360. As long as you hit both ramps each lap you will hit the 15,000 goal. 1 of them is behind a trigger switch so you will need to make sure you have energy to open it.

    Bonus objective – Get 100,000 Drift Points
    Nothing out of the ordinary. The same basic strategy will get you through any drift challenge. Start drifting early, make wide turns, prolong the drift, and drift everything.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Grand Tour – Breakwater

    Payoff objective – No Wall Hits For 1 Lap
    You only have to drive 1 perfect lap. It’s best to take it slow && use your 1st lap for this even if you fall behind, the game will give you green arrows to help you catch up.

    Bonus objective – Take Down 3 Opponents In The Shipping Yard
    This area is just after the first jump. It’s easiest to get on the first lap, the jump fills your energy so you can sideswipe them for 3 take downs while they’re still clustered together. If you get this on the 1st lap you don’t have to wait for the NPCs on 2nd or 3rd lap.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Grand Tour – Dire Cliffs

    Payoff objective – Get 50,000 Drift Points
    Although I didn’t get this one in the video, it’s another easy drifting objective. Again…. drift early, take wide turns, prolong the drift, and drift every corner.

    Bonus objective – Take Down 3 Opponents In The Canyon
    This area is just after the broken bridge && tunnel. If you get a charged lvl 3 weapon that doesn’t miss (like the lightning I used) then you should be able to take down all 3 with one shot.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – Grudge Match – Diablo

    One of the races from Career mode in ModNation Racers.
    This is the grudge match VS Diablo that you unlock after Launcers Rush.
    All you have to do is get 1st place && beat Diablo and his minions.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Grim Tour – Launchers Rush

    Payoff objective: Use 3 Unique Jumps
    You’re basically required to hit 2 of these. The only one you might miss is the third one I get on lap 3 that’s hidden behind a trigger switch.

    Bonus objective: Avoid Yellow ModBots

    This is a really easy objective. The first ModBot won’t touch you as long as you just stay on the road. The second set of ModBots will keep to themselves if you just stick to the wall & avoid them.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – Grudge Match – Dolor

    One of the races from Career mode in ModNation Racers.
    The grudge match with Dolor after Rumble Island.
    Not a hard grudge match, Dolor doesn’t take a lot of shortcuts. So if you use them all you should be able to pull pretty far ahead.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Grim Tour – Rumble Island

    Payoff objective: Get 4,000 Airtime Points
    There are 2 big jumps you will hit every lap. They’re big enough to get you this in 2 laps if you boost over them, but that’s not even necessary.

    Bonus objective: Sideswipe Dolor In The Village

    This has to be done in the village. (the area with grass huts) It’s actually pretty easy to get on the first lap if you stay right behind him and get him as he turns. If you don’t get it on the first lap just restart until you do.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – Grudge Match – Dyno

    One of the races from Career mode in ModNation Racers.
    The grudge match with Dyno, after the Marina.

    This match is more about the spins. If you take the 2nd shortcut over the water
    every lap (the one behind the trigger shot) you should be able to get enough extra spin points to guarantee victory.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Grim Tour – Marina

    Payoff objective: Get 2,000 Max Speed Points
    Hit every boost && use your turbo when you have it. You should be able to get close to 2,000 by the end of lap 2.

    Bonus objective: Get 50,000 Drift Points
    You can stay in constant drift through the first area of this lap, up until you get to the 180 degree turn. If you drift that entire area && the area on top of the mountain then this should be an easy goal to reach.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – Grudge Match – Nato

    One of the races from Career mode in ModNation Racers.
    The grudge match with Nato, after the Sinkhole.

    There aren’t many shortcuts on this track, so you’ll have to rely on your racing ability to beat them. There are only 2 shortcuts, one by the bridges and one on that turn right before the finish line. They shouldn’t cut more than a second off your lap time though.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Grim Tour – The Sinkhole

    Payoff objective: Take Down Opponent Near The Sinkhole
    The sinkhole is that curved road with boosts all over it, before a big jump. The easy way to get this is to stay behind until you have a boost then get ahead && drop it as a mine on that road. (hold Square to drop it behind you)

    Bonus objective: Destroy Nato’s Explosives
    There are 3 on the track, it doesn’t matter how you do it as long as they all get destroyed. It even counts if the NPC accidentally hits it. One is on that island next to the 2 curved bridges. The second one is next to the left turn right after that. The final one is on the next left turn, by the wall.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – Grudge Match – Aloha

    One of the races from Career mode in ModNation Racers.
    The grudge match with Aloha, after you beat Lost Temple.
    As long as you focus on drifting through the entire devastator area && take the shortcut just after that each lap (I didn’t take it) you shouldn’t have much of a problem beating him.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Grim Tour – Lost Temple

    Payoff objective: Get 15,000 Spin Points
    Take the shortcut after the gauntlet each lap (activated by the triggers) and you can easily get 2 spins per lap to hit 15,000.

    Bonus objective: Take Down Aloha In The Gauntlet
    This one is pretty easy, if you get into 1st Aloha will usually be right with you. All you have to do is get a lvl 3 rocket, and let him pass you so you can shoot him when you’re in the gauntlet. It has to be done in the gauntlet, which is the area with all the devastators.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – Grudge Match – Shadow

    One of the races from Career mode in ModNation Racers.
    The grudge match with Shadow after Switchback Valley.
    Don’t worry about keeping up with Shadow in this one, just focus on prolonging your drifts & getting spins wherever you can. Take the corners wide, drift as early as possible, and hold them as long as you can without hitting walls. You should be able to manage a 10,000+ point lead if you focus on drifting.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Grim Tour – Switchback Valley

    Payoff objective: Get 70,000 Drift Points
    This track is all about drifting, so you should get this many points just racing it. If you still have trouble just don’t use the shortcuts until you hit 70,000. You should be able to stay in an almost constant drift on this track, the straight roads aren’t very long.

    Bonus objective: Take Down Shadow
    It doesn’t matter where you do it, or the method you do it with. Shadow should stay with you through most of the race if you’re in first. Just get ahead and drop a mine (hold Square) or get a level 3 weapon.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – Grudge Match – Slick

    One of the races from Career mode in ModNation Racers.
    The grudge match with Slick, after the Sandstorm race
    This is one of the easier grudge matches, you should be able to win by a lot even if you don’t take the main jump to get those extra spins. Just take your turns wide and don’t worry about finishing 2nd, just focus on points.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Grim Tour – Modobahn

    Payoff objective: Activate 3 Devastators
    This one’s easy, you just have to push all 3 of those triggers by the devastators in 1 race. You can get all 3 in one lap, it shouldn’t take more than 2 laps to get them.

    Bonus objective: Take Down 1 Opponent Using A Devastator
    One of the most frustrating challenges in the game. =/
    This challenge relies on chance quite a bit. Just get up into 1st place on lap 1, then stop by the first devastator on the right && wait for the pack to catch up. Hit the trigger as they’re passing you and hope you hit somebody, if you miss just restart.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – Grudge Match – Jez

    One of the races from Career mode in ModNation Racers.
    The grudge match with Jez after Drift Paradise.
    This stage is built to drift constantly. You shouldn’t have any problem beating Jez if you hold your drift && ride the top of the walls. That’s what they’re here for.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Grim Tour – Sandstorm

    Payoff objective: Don’t Fall Off The Track
    There really aren’t that many dangerous places where you risk falling off the track. You should be able to get this one pretty easily.

    Bonus objective: Take Down Slick On The Cliffside
    Get a big weapon, then let him pass you near the end of the track, where the cliff doesn’t have a ledge. Lvl3 rockets or sonic boom work great for this.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Range Tour – Drift Paradise

    Payoff objective: Get 4,000 Wall Ride Points
    As long as you ride every wall you should manage to get this. You should be riding the top of the wall already to get the drift points you need for the bonus objective.

    Bonus objective: Get 140,000 Drift Points
    This is one of the tracks that’s built to drift almost constantly. Take your corners wide, try to stay in constant drift & ride the walls up to the top while drifting.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – Grudge Match – Scout

    One of the races from Career mode in ModNation Racers.
    The grudge match with Scout after the Rickety Bridge race.
    There aren’t very many jumps you can 360 off in this track, but if you focus on prolonging your drifts you should be able to beat him. Like always, just focus on drifting the corners wide && not worry about keeping up that much.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Range Tour – Rickety Bridge

    Payoff objective: Take Down 3 Opponents On The Big Bridge
    You’ll already be taking Scout out on the big bridge. If you do it while your opponents are clustered together with a lvl 3 weapon you should be able to do it in 1 shot. It doesn’t matter which weapon you use, you can even sideswipe them.

    Bonus objective: Take Down Scout On The Big Bridge
    You’ll be taking down 3 opponents on the big bridge anyways, 1 might as well be Scout to get this objective.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – Grudge Match – Iceman

    One of the races from Career mode in ModNation Racers.
    The grudge match with Iceman after the Craggy Hills race.
    There are a few shortcuts that will let you squeeze in some 360s, but mostly just take your turns extra wide to wrack up a lot of points. This track’s design makes it easier to prolong your drifts.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Range Tour – Craggy Hills

    Payoff objective: Get 10,000 Road Points
    You’re pretty much guaranteed to get this one if you skip the shortcuts….. you should skip them anyways for the Bonus objective. Just try to stay on the road.

    Bonus objective: No Wall Hits For Full Race
    Alot easier than it sounds. It may require you to learn the track layout, but most of the turns are pretty wide. You just have to watch out for other racers sideswiping you, narrow roads, and shortcuts. I recommend skipping the shortcuts because they’re pretty narrow && you may hit the wall on the ramp, or hit the mountain on the other jump.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – Grudge Match – Fade

    One of the races from Career mode in ModNation Racers.
    The grudge match with Fade after the Market Run race.
    This grudge match will probably come down to your racing skills. There’s not any huge shortcuts in this track. Just learn the track layout && keep trying until you know it well enough to get 1st.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Range Tour – Market Run

    Payoff objective: Destroy 10 Market Stalls
    It really doesn’t matter who destroys them, as long as they get destroyed. The NPC drivers will actually hit most of them for you. Just keep your eyes open for the last ones they miss && make sure you get them before you finish.

    Bonus objective: Get 15,000 Spin Points
    This one is really easy on this track. There is 1 big jump that gets you an easy 720, do that every lap and you’ll have this goal.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – Grudge Match – Hale

    One of the races from Career mode in ModNation Racers.
    The grudge match with Hale after the Flaming Jumps race.
    This is pretty straight forward, just get 1st place. Make sure you take that sharp left onto the dirt path after the double jump. That should cut your time down enough to keep you in 1st.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Mayhem Tour – Flaming Jumps

    Payoff objective: Take Down 3 Opponents
    It doesn’t matter how or where you take them down, you just have to hit 3 people during the race.

    Bonus objective: Take Down Hale In Front Of The Grandstands
    This has to be done in the area just before the finish line, it’s best to do it in the first 2 laps. Level 3 rockets or level 3 sonic boom should get the job done easily. Just stop there and let him pass you, then fire.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – Grudge Match – Wildcard

    One of the races from Career mode in ModNation Racers.
    The grudge match with Wildcard after the Island Dash race.

    Wildcard does not take that first shortcut (with the boat-ramp jump) so if you take that every lap you should be able to get a good lead.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Mayhem Tour – Island Dash

    Payoff objective: Get 4,000 Airtime Points
    For this one, make sure you take the first shortcut every lap. (the one with the boat-ramp jump) That will get most of the points you need, then you can use the grass hill just after the shortcut as a ramp to get the rest.

    Bonus objective: Take Down Wildcard
    It doesn’t matter where you do this, or what weapon you use. You just have to shoot or sideswipe Wildcard at least once during the race.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – Grudge Match – Skidplate

    One of the races from Career mode in ModNation Racers.
    The grudge match with Skidplate after the Boardwalk race.
    For this grudge match just focus on hitting all of the boost pads, that should reduce your lap time significantly. There aren’t really any huge shortcuts on this track to worry about.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Mayhem Tour – Boardwalk

    Payoff objective: Get 4,000 Max Speed Points
    For this objective just focus on hitting as many boost pads as possible && not hitting the walls too often. The boost pads raise your max speed points by quite a bit.

    Bonus objective: Take Down Skidplate

    It doesn’t matter where you do this, or with what method. All you have to do is hit him at least once during the race. If you’re in first he should be pretty close to you so you can hit him.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Mayhem Tour – Miner’s Rift

    Payoff objective: No Wall Hits For 1 Lap
    This only requires you to finish 1 lap with no wall hits. So take your 1st lap easy, if you hit something just restart until you get through it on your 1st lap. That way you’ll have 2 laps to catch up.

    Bonus objective: Take Down Drillbit
    It doesn’t matter where you do this, or with what weapon. You’ll probably get this anyways if you’re in first, he will usually be right behind you. Just keep dropping all the items you pick up as mines (hold Square)&& some of them will hit him.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Home Tour – Alpine Drop

    Payoff objective: Take All 3 Shortcuts
    These aren’t really shortcuts, but more like alternate routes. The first one is just past the starting line, go left of the trees that are in the road. The next 2 are in the devastator area…. one to the left, one to the right.

    Bonus objective: Get 15,000 Spint Points
    This is a really easy one. You only need 2 spins per lap & there are 2 big jumps that make it simple.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Home Tour – Village Run

    Payoff objective: Sideswipe 1 Opponent
    You can’t get the bonus objective without getting this.

    Bonus objective: Sideswipe 3 Opponents
    To get this one you just have to sideswipe 3 people. It doesn’t matter who, or where on the track you do it. Just pull up next to somebody and push the right stick in their direction to hit them. Each sideswipe takes some of your energy.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Home Tour – Farm Frenzy


    Payoff objective: Get 30,000 Drift Points

    Not a very large goal to reach for, as long as you drift every corner you should have no problem with this.

    Bonus objective: Get 3,000 Draft Points

    For this objective you have to follow behind somebody for points. Since this is the beginning of the game the goals aren’t very high. You should be able to achieve this in 2 or 3 big drafts.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Home Tour – Mod Circuit

    Payoff objective: Pick Up 3 Item Pods
    Self explanatory.

    Bonus objective: Drive Over 3 Boost Pads

    Self explanatory.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – Grudge Match – Drillbit

    One of the races from Career mode in ModNation Racers.
    The grudge match with Drillbit after the Miner’s Rift race.
    This is still pretty early in the game so the goals aren’t set too high. The key to this grudge match is to hold your drifts as long as possible. You should get a lot of points when the road spirals around a couple times if you take it wide && stick to the right of the road.

    ModNation Racers walkthrough video guide – The Range Tour – Wild Run

    Payoff objective: Activate 3 Devastators
    Pretty simple, just drive over 3 of the switches that activate devastators. The NPC drivers like to drive over them before you, so make sure you’re not directly behind someone else or it won’t count.

    Bonus objective: Take Down 1 Opponent Using A Devastator

    This one can get pretty frustrating. It relies on dumb luck. The best way to do this is to get ahead of the pack, then wait by a switch until they’re passing you.

    ModNation Racers: How to make a Princess Peach Car

    To get Princess Peach from Super Mario, do every sticker with 0% metal and 0% rubber so it doesn’t shine. Put the final shine on with large 0% transparency && 25% metal && 75% rubber && 100% candy “Flake” stickers to make it look like glitter.

    ModNation Racers: How to make a Epoch Car

    To get Epoch from Chrono Trigger, set Metal, Rubber, and Candy to 0% on all my stickers so nothing would shine. After finishing the rest of the stickers use giant black chrome stickers with == 40 transparancey && 50 metal && 50 Rubber && 0 Candy to provide the metallic shine and darken the colors.

    Thanks to FrankNStein for the walkthrough videos.
