Classic Death Match

Sunsprings, CA

Hints and Tips

  1. By completing this level you will be rewarded with a Submachine Gun.
  2. Do not venture into the open park areas of this level, unless there is a particular weapon located there that you need to gain an advantage. These fields offer low amounts of cover and can be fired upon from cover positions surrounding the parks.
  3. When being pursued by an enemy, turn down as many streets as you can in succession to lose the tail or at least throw off their aim.
  4. Try to avoid smashing through the suburban homes and buildings if possible, as they can provide cover throughout the map from flanking enemies.
  5. Save your ricochet projectiles for the narrow alleyways and streets to increase the chances of the weapon hitting its mark.
  6. The buildings you can drive into for close-combat battles include: the church, the movie theater, the school and the grocery store.


Hints and Tips

  1. Use the inclines to reach the upper edge of the arena, where you can have access to the garage and various magnetic pads.
  2. Wait for the surrounding walls to rise before firing your ricochet projectiles to increase the odds of hitting your mark.
  3. Drive across the bridge to reach a pad at the top of the arena, then remain still on this pressure panel to scatter members of the audience across the map. Run over the people marked with a question mark to receive various weapons and collide with ones wearing blue to acquire health.
  4. When being pursued by an enemy vehicle, find the bridge lined with swinging obstacles and navigate across it safely in an attempt to lose the tail.
  5. Another evasive tactic in this area is drive over the elevating walls as they rise and then suddenly changing your direction with a sharp turn.

The Diesel City Checkpoint Race just cost me a controller. I have been unable to beat the level for over a week! Finally I got so mad that slammed my controller on the floor and busted it into a million pieces. What stupid decision to add races to Twisted Metal! Arghh!!!

Link to busted controller!

@Mad Zombie: It’s not to difficult race. Just use Crimson Fury and play it a few times slowly and memorize the path. If you worry too much about how the other opponents are doing you end up screwing yourself. Just worry about each checkpoint after the next and the enemies will just eventually fall behind. And keep calm too. Getting frustrated like you did is your worst enemy. If you can’t beat it after awhile come back to it after a few hours or a day or so.
