New to Burnout Revenge?

We have noticed that there are lots of new players online in Burnout Revenge. Are you one of them? Then you should read on as we will give you some really good advice on how to start winning races online!

Burnout Revenge 101

There is much more to Burnout Revenge than mastering the tracks and doing perfect laps at top speed. Start by selecting the best car: The Revenge Racer.

Then there is the Boost Start. Don't know how to do it? Don't worry, here is how to do the boost start in Burnout Revenge

You might wonder how people in the same car as you are flying past you when you are driving at top speed (209 MPH)? Since Burnout 2: Point of Impact it has been possible to do something called drift jumping. In Burnout 3: Takedown the Euro Circuit racer was probably the easiest car to do this with (although not many people knew about it or could do it) and you could get speeds well above 300 MPH. 

In Burnout Revenge drift jumping became common knowledge and is probably the reason why this game is still very popular. There is no such thing as a perfect race, you can always do better.

If you want to be able to keep up with the best players in Burnout Revenge you need to learn how to do drift jumping and how to maintain the speed you gain.

Start by reading the following two guides: The art of drift jumping and FrozenVapor's drift jumping guide. When you have mastered the basics you should have a look at Nero Angelo's Guide to Maintaining Speed - Part 1 and Nero Angelo's Guide to Maintaining Speed - Part 2.

We also have some helpful hints on how to get some online achievements:

If you have other questions check out the Burnout Revenge FAQ or ask questions below.

Welcome to the world of BURNOUT!

Truck Stop - Burnout Inspired Crash Game by Indie Developer

Truck Stop is new Burnout style crash game developed by Adam Sawkins aka “DjArcas”.

In the version we have tested you can tweak your vehicles handling and parameters before sending it crashing down an obstacle-filled level. The more damage you inflict on the Crash Test Dummy, the bigger your score!

The mechanics and gameplay feels like a mix of the Crash Modes in Burnout 2: Point of Impact, Burnout 3: Takedown and Burnout Revenge and the idea is probably to create a next-gen crash mode.


Truck Stop Trailer - with previews of the levels Train Station, Zombie Nation and Mars Attack!

The game is developed in Unity and the beta version we have tried feels quite rough and unfinished. Truck Stop is a work in progress and we expect huge improvements as development progresses.

As the game grows and develops, Projector Games plan to listen to the community, and implement more vehicles, levels and ragdolls.

To support the development of the game you can:

  • Vote for the game on Steam Greenlight
  • Buy the game on IndieCity for $5
