Alternate vehicle color
Highlight a vehicle and press [Circle] at the selection screen to change its color or intensity.

Play your own music
Press [Start] during game play, open the PlayStation lid, and replace the game disc with an audio CD. When game play resumes, the music from the CD will begin playing. A prompt for the game CD will appear after the level ends.
Launch Site weapons
Go to the tower in the middle of the Launch Site level. Approach to the tunnel that does not go through and wait until the lights above are green beforine driving in. You will be taken up on to the tower and a booster rocket will be placed on back of your vehicle. Then, you will be shot into the air and dropped. Collect the weapons, that include specials and radar jammers. This may be repeated as much as needed, unless the tower is destroyed.

Quick start
To rev up your engines for a quick start, press "Gas" + "Brake". After revving up, you should do a wheelie. This is useful for a quick start and for getting up hills.

Fly higher
Get the hover upgrade, then hold "Gas" and repeatedly press [Up].

Triple salvage points
Destroy your opponents with a special weapon to get triple salvage points.

Easy chassis
Go to the options and turn the damage on high and the difficulty on low. Each icon will now be worth 7.

Alaskan Pipeline: Grind
When you enter the level, head towards the water and you will pass between two pipes that go into the ground. Right after you go between them, turn left and you will see a ramp. Go up the ramp and turn left, then turn left again on to another oil silo. You should be looking across to another one. Slowly drive off it to land on the pipes, going into the ground to grind across them. You can do a 50-50 a 180 or car (board) slide.

Area 51: Launch nuclear missile
Collect the hover upgrade in the second hanger (the one on the immediate right if you are player one). Then, blast through the back of the hanger and fly over the hill so the radar dishes detect you. When you hear the radar dish give off a signal and move, you have approximately twenty to thirty seconds to set off the nuclear rocket. Detach the hover upgrade and drive to the left of the Area 51 administration building. Use your machine guns to blast through the side doors. Drive through the building and pick up two special weapons and a wrench. Use your machine guns again to blast the other side doors. Once through the building, drive right and around the missile silo. You will see a green light overhead, indicating the missile launch is ready. Drive underneath the green light and the nuclear missile will launch. The missile will seek whomever you are locked on to and cause a good amount of damage. Note: Repeat the steps to do this as many times as desired.

Shoot out doors of the building and drive through. Half way through you will hear a small click. Drive to the lights by the silo your facing. If one is red and one is green, go under and the missile will launch. It will fly towards the car that is targeted. If the lights are both red, drive through again until you hear the click. There is a long reload time between missiles - one may not launch if one was very recently fired. The missiles also will not launch if the building is destroyed. Additionally, at least one satellite dish must be present to launch.

Arizona: Airborne in crater
Enable the "Faster cars" code. Start in the middle of the crater and circle around until you get enough speed. Speed out of one of the sides and you will become airborne. When you reach the boundary of the level, you will be launched back and land back in the crater. You can continue the trick until you wreck.

Arizona: Big ant
Destroy the observatory in Arizona and wait until the loud explosion. Examine the big crater in the middle of the level to find a big asteroid. Destroy the asteroid and a giant ant will emerge and shoot everyone in the level.

Destroy the ant, and stand in the middle of the crater. When the big rock appears, it will land on you and you will fly.

Arizona: Rolling donut
Destroy the donut shop in the Arizona level without damaging the "Super Donut" on top. The donut will roll around the level destroying enemies. This may be done on each of the two donut shops in the level.

Arizona: Rocket
Go to one of the gas stations in the Arizona level and shoot the rocket located there with your machine gun. It will launch and hit your enemy.

Arizona: Attacking police
If you shoot the cop in the Arizona level he will attack you by ramming your vehicle.

Arizona Gas station armor
Go to one of the two gas stations. Stop in-between the pumps and snack shop. You will hear a sound as if your car was in the repair shop. In about five seconds, the sound will stop and you will have more armor than before. You may do this as many times as needed unless the gas stations are destroyed. Note: It will take some time before you can do it again.

Florida: Shark
You can be attacked by a shark by getting the hydrofloater power ups and going next to a certain buoy.

Hint: Florida: Extra damage:
When using Bob O's special in the Florida level, a good spot to release when your special runs out is into the fans or jets. Be careful not to get yourself pulled into them. This will also buy you some time to get other weapons. This is also effective to launch enemies into the fans to complete that objective.

Louisiana: Ghosts
Destroy the graves in the cemetery. Ghosts will appear and begin attacking.

If an enemy is close by when you destroy the tombs, the ghosts may attack the enemy instead of you.

When you destroy a tomb, drive very fast to the one next to it and also destroy it. If done correctly, there should be more than one ghost circling the ruins of a tomb. The ghosts will keep circling until they attack someone. You can get up to five ghosts this way, but you need to be very fast to outrun the them.

To escape from the ghosts without being attacked, drive into the deep water (the water that can you sink in and come out elsewhere). The ghosts cannot attack you.

Louisiana: Flood
Approach the bridge (or dam) and shoot at the nearby wheel. It will start to spin and the bridge will begin to raise. Keep shooting until the bridge is completely raised. Repeat this at the other bridge. In a few seconds, it will start to flood.

Louisiana: Hidden bonuses
Get Gator trapped in the charges in the water section. Specials and wrenches will fly out.

Louisiana: Destroy enemies easier
Choose someone that has a special that can send the enemies flying (Garbage Man, Convoy, etc.). Make sure that they get in the lake on the left. If near the bayou, it is the lake on the left; on the right if in the grave yard; or get them into the deep water. This is also useful in two player or quest mode. Note: You can also do this in the Florida level. Bump them into the shark, throw them in deep water, or attack them to take their floaters off.

Pennsylvania: Molten metal ooze
Find the red-orange steel that sets you on fire if you touch it. Shoot it and it will melt, oozes across the river, and disappear. This is useful when enemies are on the other side.

Utah Ski Resort: Snow games
There are three different snow games to play. If you do them properly, you will get extra power-ups, weapons, etc. Go to the top of the hill via ski lifts, or by just driving. The first game is a skiing type slalom (obtain the ski powerup first). Successfully slalom the blue/red flags. A winner's stand with power-ups will appear at the bottom, by the resort. The second is a ski slope/ramp. To get to the ramp, you must first drive into the tower at the top of the hill. Drive down the ramp as fast as possible. Once in the air, you can do tricks and get points for power-ups at the winner's stand. The last ski game is the luge, all the way on the left. Run the luge (with the ski powerup) and hit all the check points. Finish at the bottom and pick up power-ups at the winners stand. All these mini-games can be done as often as needed, but you must break your previous score in order to keep getting power-ups.

Utah Ski Resort: Going back up the ski jump
Note: This trick is almost impossible, but can be done. Enable the "More speed" code. Take a car that has a medium or slow top speed, but good acceleration and go down the ramp of the ski jump. Launch off all the way to the opposite side and you will bounce off the edge in mid-air, just like in the Arizona level. On the way back, do a 180 and land back on the ramp. Hit the brakes right when you hit the ramp (if you do not do this, you will go straight through the jump). If done correctly, you can slowly accelerate the car up the ramp until you get to the tower. You will be able to go right down the tower or out the other side.

Fire all ammo
Enable the "Rapid Fire" code, then begin game play. Get any gun, get close to an opponent, then rapidly tap "Fire". The gun should fire all of its ammunition in about five seconds.

Brimstone Burner
Equip the Brimstone Burner and have at least 16 fire "units". Find your enemy in the level and drive up to him until you have made contact with his vehicle. Launch the Brimstone Burner's Fire Wall ([Right], [Left], [Down], "Machine Gun") onto his vehicle. If done correctly, it will do a large amount of damage and sometimes instantly destroy the other vehicle.

Easy Whammies
An easy way to get Whammies is to use Bob O's Special. While the enemy is still hooked on, change weapons and fire them . This works well with the Bruiser Cannon and Bull's Eye Missiles.

Whammie X4
Play as Bob O and use your special. While they are attached, you can use the Cow Puncher Special to do a Whammie X4.

Double power weapons
Enable the "Rapid fire" code. Get one load only of Bull's Eye Rockets, Skyhammer Mortars, and Interceptor Missiles. Fire all your ammo and repeat the process three times. Get any weapons of you choice (and get all the ammo as desired) and they will be twice as powerful.

Double garbage truck
If there are three garbage trucks, get one to use the Compactor on another garbage truck. Then, use your garbage truck to use the Compactor on the first truck that is already holding the other truck.

Convoy's truck
Convoys regular truck is a 1950's Autocar Diesel. His upgraded truck is a 1977 Kenworth W900.

Strange colors
Enable the "All characters", "Rapid fire", "Lighter cars", and "Invincibility" codes. Start one match with any character in arcade mode (with twelve enemies). When it is completed, do another with the same character and a different level. On the enemy health bar screen the Chrono Stinger (Agent R. Chase) will appear all purple, the bruiser cannon will be all gray with black stripes and the orange balls of fire will appear as purple squares (the fire is still there when it lands and it is normal). The flame thrower looks like the B-cannon (the fire coming from it looks fine but the smoke is purple). All the other weapons will be glitched. It may take awhile for the colors to get changed. It helps if your character is Lord Clyde (the character with the Limo), your first level is California, and your second level must be Arizona. The only sure way to get the strange colors is to kill an ant in the Arizona level, sit in the middle of the crater, and get the rock to hit you. When you fly up, the game will freeze, after a short time you will start to fall slightly before freezing again.

Create your own "evil" car
Select a game mode, then highlight the desired car. Press [Circle] then move down to the bottom bar and lower it completely. Finally, go to the top bar and choose your color.

Glitch: Arizona: Leave the game boundary
Use Padre's half track machine, the Bruiser Cannon weapon, and his special "Hades Gate". Knock your enemy over the wall with the "Cow Puncher" or "Road Rocket" combo, then quickly use your special weapon at the same time (before he leaves the boundary). Soon after your machine will rocket up and out of the game boundary, where your enemy is. The game may freeze. To get back into the level, just use your special weapon again.

Glitch: Louisiana: Never ending gator trap
Go to the water where the gator is located. Use your machine guns to destroy all the trees, then waste the traps. There should now be a trap by the bridge in shallow water that returns immediately once it is used. If you are in a slow vehicle, you could get stuck in the trap. Note: The game may freeze if used too much.
