Crash Tag Team Racing Tips
Back to top
If ever you are in 1st in a race and there is a lot of Fire Guy activity, there's an easy way to avoid them. Just pick up an exploding chicken or TNT monkey, and throw it back as soon as you see a set of crosshairs turn red from a Fire Guy closing in. You will destroy the Fire Guy and avoid damage completely!
You can also shoot it if you are the gunner of a clashed car, but this proves difficult with some weapons.
Also, this works with any power-up, but it's most convenient with insta-kill power-ups like Fire Guys.
In Von Clutches bowling when you get stuck in the gutter, tap X repeatedly to jump out of the gutter.

Okay, you probably know that you can make burping and farting noises at the loading screen by pressing X/Triangle. But did you know you can change the pitch of them? Just hold up/down on the left analog stick (NOT the D-Pad). Up is for high pitch and down is for low pitch.
The easiest way to win races is to clash with other players and keep with them the whole time. Try clashing with Nina or N. Gin. Be the gunner. If the driver starts to do reckless driving, switch to driver.
If in a race your going to clash,clash with either Nina or Crunch.They are both really good shooters so if you are clashing with them,DRIVE!Be driver!!!

You all must know that body-slamming Ninja Penguins ( X + O) gives you alot of coins, right? Well, when the Ninja Penguins are flashing once body slammed, Spin it. For each spin before it disappears it gives you two Wumpa Coins.

To do this, just clash with anybody(but don't drive, shoot.) When you are near the finishing line clash out and drive at full speed to win the race:) (You can get power crystals eaiser when you do this).
Hope you liked the tip
While on the loading screen within the game press the triangle button to make some farting noises and X to make some belching noises
If you want more coins from penguins, don't spin them, bodyslam them!

Each particular character has a taunt. To activate the taunt, press the left analog stick. Each character will have a different taunt with a particular weapon.
ok here it is for a race be n-gin or nina cortex and then clash with somebody and then be the shooter.You should have a great weapon which can blow up another veichle in literally 2 or 3 shots(this is useful for the game rolling thunder aswell)
NOTE! This does not work in a battle arena
For a battle arena when you choose a characters car select a car that has a sheild sign to the right of the screen, this should give you a tougher veichle so you can't get destroyed as easily.Change to the driver and get to the red rocket that is around the arena somewhere, then quickly change to the shooter it should be easier for you to destroy more characters.If you run out of rockets just simply change to the driver and get some more.
Sorry i'm still working on figureing out hoe to be number#1 in fast laps and crashinator
Hope this helped

As you start a race, quickly clash with someone* close to you and become the driver, as you get power ups use them as and when but your gunner should be destroying the cars in front.
Nearing the end of the race, you should be near the front if not first, but as your coming up to the finish line make sure you're driving and un-clash, (being driver when you un-clash pushes you further forward than the gunner, there-fore you should be able to beat them**),
ideally you'd end in first.
*most other non-player characters are unlikely to clash, giving you the edge,
**If your still clashed whilst you finish 1st, you'd share 1st place with your companion, quickly un-clashing before finishing 1st ensures you with 1st place, just you, no-one else... unless you mess up,

When you find Cortex on Mystery Island there's an owl shaped lamp behind him. Hit the body-slam switch and it will rise up. Enter the cave, and go right. Have a chat with the drone at the top of the island and shell out 2000 coins to get the costume.

If you have been using a fast car lately, and you keep coming in 4th or 5th place, try a good handled car, such as the Yellow Horde.
Crash Tag Team Racing Glitches
Back to top
first, put the chicken head cheat. next, hit every person except for the racers. when finished, you should see all people headless.
(NOTE: looks a little creepy when headless and follow you around)
Firstly, go to the main screen and punch in the Japanese Crash cheat (R1+LI square, circle, square circle) and go to a world (Not the Midway). Run a round for a bit, then find a race gate. Go into into it and change to normal Crash, you know if it works because his pupils are gone and he is standing up straight (The standing straight bit is for all Crash skins, try it!) Come out, dont do a race.You'll notice that his pupils are gone, his shadow is very peculiar and when he is still, he doesnt to his little movement thing, he just stands there. Enjoy!
