Island Paradise Crash Junction

A Crash Event in progress

FeaturedArticle Crash (Burnout 3) was Burnopedia's Featured Article in August 2009.

Crash Events are special events in Burnout 3: Takedown that ask the player to smash their vehicle into traffic to rack up Crash dollars in 100 different Crash Junctions. This gameplay mode first appeared in Burnout 2: Point of Impact and was later included in Burnout Legends and Burnout Revenge. In Burnout 3 they are separate from the main race World Tour segment but share the same map space.

ModesEdit

Each variation of Crash Mode shares the same mechanics but later events are previously played junctions except with differing parameters. World Tour mode is the main Single Player mode in which Crash Events can be accessed allowing you to earn Crash dollars to set records and earn prizes such as Crash Headlines and vehicles. Any Crash Junction unlocked in the World Tour can be played in Multiplayer mode.

There are also three Multiplayer variants for both Online and Offline play.

  • Team Crush - Two players choose their own cars and enter a junction together where their final scores are added together at the end.
  • Double Impact - Two players choose their own cars and enter a junction together where their final scores are totaled individually at the end.
  • Party Crash - Up to 8 players compete on a Crash Junction for the highest score in a round based tournament.

Gameplay MechanicsEdit

Basic GameplayEdit

Crash Mode mechanics are quite simple. At its core all the player has to do is to smash into traffic at the junction and score as many Crash dollars as possible. This is expanded with the inclusion of medals which requires more advanced tactics. Before each junction starts the player can watch a preview allowing them to survey the various elements of the junction including traffic placement, volume, speed and timing. The video also shows where the ramps and items are located.

A key aspect to racking up lots of Crash dollars is to crash into the traffic at the correct location. Ramming the back of the last car in the oncoming lane will only damage your car and the vehicle you hit, while hitting the one at the front will also damage all cars behind it which creates a pile-up. Tankers and Big Rigs can have their trailers pushed into adjacent lanes to wreck any approaching cars.

Another method of doing this is by using Impact Time. When a player goes off a ramp, crashes or explodes then they can activate Impact Time which allows them to use the Left Stick to steer their wreck in slow-motion.

CrashbreakerEdit

Crashbreaker is the final mechanic in causing total destruction in a Junction. When the required amount of cars have been involved in the crash then the player can detonate their car causing damage to any vehicles in its vicinity and sending smaller ones flying into out-of-reach traffic. Any Tankers caught in the explosion will also detonate causing a more widespread explosion. Several junctions focus on this aspect to get high scores such as Marina Mayhem.

Activating an earned Crashbreaker gives you an extra $5,000 (Tanker explosions earn no bonus but exploded Tankers are worth nearly $100,000).

PickupsEdit

Getting Crash $ Multipliers should be the player's priority.

In addition to Crashbreakers and Impact Time a new feature to Burnout 3's Crash Mode are pickups. These can vary from adding Crash dollars to cutting your score in half.

  • Dollar Pickups
    • Bronze Pickup: Adds $5,000 to Crash $ Total
    • Silver Pickup: Adds $10,000 to Crash $ Total
    • Gold Pickup: Adds $20,000 to Crash $ Total
  • Crash $ Multipliers (these are always added AFTER Dollar Pickups)
    • 2x Multiplier: Doubles your Crash $ Total
    • 4x Multiplier: Multiples your Crash $ Total by a shocking 4 times. It cancels out the 2x Multiplier if obtained.
    • Heartbreaker: Lives up to its namesake by cutting your score in half.
  • Other Pickups
    • Boost: Boost pickups instantly give you unlimited boost and activates it. As soon as you hit this it can not be stopped.
    • Crashbreaker: Touching this automatically detonates your car and adds $10,000 to Crash $ total.
    • Score Switcher (Double Impact Only): Switches the scores of Player 1 and Player 2 at the end of the crash.

RampsEdit

Ramps are used in various Junctions to allow the player to jump over obstacles. Ramps come in different varieties but there are two general types: Flat and Corkscrew.

Flat Ramps come in many different angles to allow the car to fly up either a few feet or many meters into the air. These are great for jumping over obstacle traffic which you may want to hit later in the crash or for flying bonnet-first into a Tanker's load.

Corkscrew Ramps come in only one angle with a large corner of the ramp at a much steeper angle than the rest of the ramp. These cause the car to enter a barrel roll and using Aftertouch can make for some awkward landings.

Boost Start Edit

Returning from Burnout 2 is the Boost Start. The Boost start yields immense acceleration comparable to that of the Boost pick-up but at the very start of the event and enables the player to reach the target junction faster. All vehicles without exception can be "Boost Started".

Whether or not to use a Boost Start depends on whether it is advantageous or not. Indeed, sometimes it allows the player to hit traffic earlier and cause more damage but if too quick, the additional Boost can cause them to enter the junction too early and completely miss a majority of the traffic.

To perform a Boost start you must first start revving the wheels with accelerator. Once the countdown begins tap the brake while holding the accelerator and will cause smoke to come from the tyres. Just before the countdown finishes let go of the accelerator and then reapply it once it is finished. If done right boost should come out of the exhaust.

The boost start acceleration vary on the size of the vehicle. The bigger the vehicle, the faster it launches.

UnlockablesEdit

Playing Crash Mode in the World Tour or Single Event with these conditions can reward the player with Crash Headlines and Heavyweight Vehicles.

Crash HeadlinesEdit

News Headlines are earned when you reach a certain Crash $ total at a specific location. Headlines are not restrained to a singe Crash Junction but rather their location. For instance Trailer Trash and Shut Up and Jump are both viable for the Silver Lake Lunacy Headline as they both are held in Silver Lake. Here are the requirements for each Crash Headline:

Headline Name Headline Location Needed Crash $
Bayside Blitz! Waterfront $900,000
Downtown Demolition! Downtown $650,000
Silver Lake Lunacy! Silver Lake $600,000
Winter City Frozen! Winter City $800,000
Alpine Smash! Alpine $900,000
Riviera Wreck! Riviera $750,000
Grape Harvest Crushed! Vineyard $850,000
Golden City Madness! Golden City $750,000
Dockside Ridge Ruin! Dockside $1,000,000
Trouble in Paradise! Island Paradise $750,000

Earning all Crash Headlines unlocks the Fire Truck.

Heavyweight VehiclesEdit

Heavyweight vehicles are vehicles only available in Crash Mode with more weight than other vehicles to cause extra damage. Other class vehicles can be used but these are recommended as they are larger, heavier and have stronger Crashbreakers. Heavyweights are earned by reaching a required Global Crash $ Total with the only exception being the Fire Truck. These requirements are listed below:

Vehicle Needed Crash $
Heavy Pickup $1,000,000
4WD Racer $2,000,000
SUV Deluxe $5,000,000
4WD Heavy Duty $10,000,000
B-Team Van $15,000,000
