Crash Team Racing has been speeding ahead of everyone else in 2019 and if you want to be the best racer, then you will need to know these tips which will help you get a leg up ahead of your rivals as you zoom past them. This guide will make you the best at Nitro Fueled.

Top Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled Tricks

1. Make sure you start accelerating before the light turns green

This one is a bit tricky and will need some getting used to, basically, all you need to do is start accelerating just before the light is about to turn green. This will give you an extra boost and will help you fill up the meter in the bottom right.

As you rev up the engine the meter will begin to fill up, and if you just hit it at the right moment you will rest assured leave everyone behind.

2. Power slide to victory

Power slides are one of the most valuable skills in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, if you can master this ability then you will almost be invincible.
With the added bonus that it fills up your boost meter, every power slide counts as it will help you maintain high speeds while tackling corners.

If you pull this off thrice in a row, then you will be granted with the max amount of boost you can possibly get which comes in handy if you are lagging behind or have someone tailgating you.

3. Use bombs and beakers in the opposite direction

By default, if you have used beakers in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled then you will know that they are always thrown behind but there is a way to make your character throw this projectile ahead. All you need to do is to hold the left analog stick in the forward position while you throw it and viola. You will have successfully pulled a miracle.

Same goes for bombs, by default they are thrown at someone who is ahead of you but if you hold the left analogue stick in the backwards position then you can throw it on anyone who is behind of you. This will help you get out of tricky situations where someone is attacking you.

4. Manually destruct bombs

This is mostly unknown to a lot of players of Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled but if you have a bomb in your possesion and if you see an opponent come near you and is about to crash simply press Circle and it will manually arm the bomb to explode.

This is a simple trick to get rid of your opponents and send them sky high while you get the clear road ahead.

5. Quick weapon selection

Whenever you drive over a crate, the weapon roulette will start spinning before granting you a weapon which usually takes a couple of seconds and this can be simply avoided by pressing Circle. This will stop the roulette and give you a random weapon which you can use immediately.

Every second matter and it is best if you can get your hands on something rather than waiting and racing to find something which you may or may not like.

6. Wumpa fruit are like steroids

You will eventually find these Wumpa fruits as you play the game and these are scattered on most tracks, these Wumpa fruits are beneficial as they make your weapons even stronger. Just make sure that you collect 10 of these and then you will see your weapons transform into something otherworldly.

It’s hard describe but they will surely make your missile go further, make your bombs stronger and have a storm effect to beakers.

7. Ahead of the game

Boss races are the most challenging races this game has to offer and they will constantly attack you with all their might, you can be the best racer in the world but if you aren’t careful enough you will be hit.

To make sure that you can get a safe and sound race, make sure that you get ahead of these bosses so that they cannot get powerups so often as they will try to hit as many crates as possible.

8. Air time

It looks and feels amazing whenever you catch big air and glide across the race track and then eventually landing perfectly, the longer you hang in the air the more boost you stand to collect.

To get the most out of your jumps, make sure that you press the hop button right before you clear the ramps. This will make sure that you get that little bit more of air time and if you manage to stay in the air for a minumum of 1.5 seconds. You will land with a serious amount of boost.

9. Handbrakes

Braking is as important as accelerating in Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, you need to know when to push for a corner and when to not otherwise you will often find yourself off course.

It is okay to lose a bit of speed when you are turning into a sharp corner instead of crashing into the wall and losing all of your speed, control and momentum.

10. Cheats

This game like the original has a ton of cheats which will offer you things like unlimited weapons, gameplay modifications and so much more. These cheats certainly change the entire dynamics of the game and will make it more fun. You can also unlock a new character with these cheats so make sure that you check them out too.

Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled is a fun game and just like the original it is a great way to keep yourself entertained for hours with just racing and blowing the other racers off the track.
