1. Please note that the XBOX and XBOX 360 version of Burnout Revenge are different games and are not compatible. 
2. Burnout Paradise is the only Burnout game that is available on PC.

There are several ways to do this. Try one of the following.

1.
At count down tap Right Trigger and Left Trigger then HOLD Right Trigger
Now your back wheels should be spinning and smoking. If they're not repeat quickly. Make sure you get them spinning before the count down goes from 2 -> 1.
3, 2, 1 ... GO. On go tap Left Trigger, Right Trigger and A.

2.
Same as above but on GO tap Left Trigger and press Right Trigger and A.

3.
Same as 1 but Just press A on GO. This is the hardest way to do it since it requires perfect timing.

4.
3, 2, 1... GO. On go tap Left Trigger and press Right Trigger. This is also and advanced technique and requires perfect timing.

Burnout 3: Takedown

The save games in Burnout 3: Takedown is tied to the XBox is was created on and cannot be moved to any other XBox. If you want to play Burnout 3: Takedown on another XBox or your XBox 360 you cannot move your save game. You will have to replay the whole game.

Burnout CRASH! will be available on XBOX 360 and PS3 as a downloadable title.

Burnout Dominator

Carnival City (South America) and Red Gate (Eastern Europe) can be downloaded from the links below. Please note that these tracks will only work on the PSP version of Burnout Dominator.

 

When you have completed 25% and 75% of the game you unlock "Menu damage". It is worth zero Dominator Points. It has an interesting and purely cosmetic effect on the game menu screens. You get a puncture mark in your screen with cracks going out of it.

Burnout Paradise

Yes, you can delete the previous updates as each successive update includes all of the information from the previous updates.

Once you have v 1.7 installed, you can delete 1.6 the Bike pack and Cagney.

The Re-Start option can be found in the Easy Drive menu on the D-Pad, just press right on the D-Pad when you want to re-start the event you are on, or the previous event and select Re-Start.

No.

This applies to the XBOX 360 version of Burnout Paradise.

'Try to go back to the dashboard and reload the game. The problem seems to be intermittent and reloading the game should solve the problem.

Revenge Racer

Yes, currently there are two boostless cars available for online play in Burnout Paradise.

The Hunter Olympus and the Nakamura Raj-Jin both have a 10 speed rating and no boost. When you enter showtime with boostless cars you get a white boost bar for the duration of the showtime.

The shortest race you can create is 1093 yards.

The shortest race in Burnout Paradise

 

The Cagney update includes the following new cars:

  • Hunter Olympus 4x4 - This car can be unlocked in the Calendar event Mount Olympus.  If you win an online Road Rage Event this day you will get to keep the car for ever.
  • Tiger GT - This car will be made available in a future Graduation Weekend event called "Eye of the Tiger".
  • Nakamura Raj-Jin Turbo - This car is only awarded to Criterion Games Elite Forum posters and to a very limted group of "Friends of Criterion". Unless you are in either of these categories you will never be able to get this car. You can however take the car for a test drive if you are lucky enough to join a lobby where the host owns this car. He or she can then setup a race and select the car for everyone.

 

There are 6 Carbon cars in Burnout Paradise.

Krieger Carbon UBERSCHALL 8 -  (completed 2 full sets of online freeburn challenges)
Montgomery Carbon Hawker - (all billboards)
Carson Carbon GT Concept - (all smashes)
Jansen Carbon X12 - (all super jumps)
Kitano Carbon Hydros Custom - (beat all Showtime Road Rules)
Nakmura Carbon Ikusa GT - (beat all Time Road Rules)

A road rule is a online or offline ShowTime record or Time record for a street. To be able to set a road rule the first thing you must do is activate the type of road rule you want to set. There are basically 4 different choices:

  • Time Offline
  • Time Online
  • Showtime Offline
  • Showtime Online
You select what kind of road rule you want to compete against by pressing up on your D-pad (scrolls through the different types of road rules).
 
To set a ShowTime road rule for a street you need to start the ShowTime in the street you want to set the road rule for. After you have started you can take the ShowTime wherever you want (other streets).
 
To set a time road rule you need to start in either end of the street. When you enter the street you will see timer in the middle top part of you screen.

 

The quickest and easiest way to access the map (on XBOX 360) is by pressing the BACK button.

If you have beaten the offline Showtime road rule on East Crawford Drive and didn't get the achievement you also need to beat the online time road rule.

To avoid any problems with this achievement make sure you do the offline Showtime road rule on East Crawford Drive before any other road rules on this street. If you have done any other road rules on East Crawford Drive  you also need to beat the online Showtime road rule.

I'm not sure whether or not this is a glitch with the achievement or an inaccurate achievement description. Hopefully this will be fixed in a patch.

If you only want to play Offline and do not want the version 1.6 update, events can not be restarted. If you feel that you will not be able to win the event you can either race to the finish or just stop your car for about 5 seconds and the event will end automatically. Sometimes it might actually pay off finishing the event even though it feels like you will lose. The AI might crash or take a “wrong” turn and you could end up winning.

If you end up losing the event or decide to cancel the event there is lots of fun stuff to if you want to retry the event.
  1. Do another event. There is almost always another event going back to the same area that you started the original event.
  2. Do a Road Rage or Stunt Run and take it in the same direction as the start of the original event. Remember that you decide where to go!
  3. Do Road Rules when you are driving back to the event.
  4. Do a Show Time and take it in the same direction as the start of the original event.
The only time you really need to restart races is when you do Burning Routes and then you can use one of the techniques above. For any other event just choose another event close to where you are and have fun!
 
Remember that this is a totally open world and the game play is non-linear. You can do any event in any order you choose!

 

I you want to cancel any offline event in Burnout Paradise just stop your car. The event will end automatically after about 5 seconds.

If you have beaten the offline time road rule on Watt St. and didn't get the achievement you also need to beat the online time road rule.

To avoid any problems with this achievement make sure you do the offline time road rule on Watt St. before any other road rules on this street. If you have done any other road rules on Watt St. you also need to beat the online time road rule.

I'm not sure whether or not this is a glitch with the achievement or an inaccurate achievement description. Hopefully this will be fixed in a patch.

Edit: This has now been patched.

Check out our MAP for details about the location of each parking garage.

There are 76 cars in Burnout Paradise. This does not include the sponsor cars. Note that the the game says car x of 75 when you enter the junk yard the first time. Car 76 is awarded when you get the block party achievement.

The timer pie tells you how much time is left until your combo will be lost. The countdown is 5 seconds. The timer counts down as long as you don’t do any:

  • Boosting.
  • Driving in reverse. Also note that driving in reverse also gives you more points when performing combos.
  • Air time.
  • Flat spins
  • Barrel rolls
  • Billboards
  • Boost chaining
  • Super Jumps
TIP: One boost squirt is enough to reset the timer pie.
 
When the timer pie gets red your combo is over and the combo score is added to your total. Your multiplier will also be reset when the timer runs out.

 

Additional cars can be unlock in by entering the codes below in "Under the hood" in the main menu of Burnout Paradise.

  • Boost chaining.
  • Super Jumps.
Also note that some of the actions in the list above also will give you multipliers. Click here for details.

 

Here are the rules for repetition:

  1. The same jump is only scored once. This means if you go over a jump in one direction and do a flat spin then go back and do a barrel roll in the same direction you will not be scored for the second time.
  2. Billboards and smashes can not be repeated.
  3. Repetition is per combo so you can go back and try again if you crash.
  4. Boost scoring degrades over time. It ends up on 1 point a second.
 Please note that there are lots of jumps you can jump of both ways. This does not count as repetition.

 

You can get multipliers in several ways.

  • Big Air (+1)
  • Flat Spin (+1 seems like angle must be > 180 degrees and the multiplier increases with higher angles)
  • Super Jumps (+1)
  • Barrel Rolls (+2)
  • Billboards (+1)
  • Boost chaining does not give you mulipliers but points. If you do a 3x boost chain you will get: 1000 + 2000 + 3000 = 6000 points!

The following release dates have been announced for Burnout Paradise:

  • 13-12-2007 - Burnout Paradise Demo released
  • 22-01-2008 - Burnout Paradise released in the USA
  • 25-01-2008 - Burnout Paradise released in Europe
There are three different car classes and boost systems in Burnout Paradise:
  1. Speed
  2. Stunt
  3. Aggression
The way you earn boost in these classes is quite different.
In a stunt car the most efficient way to earn boost is by doing stunts. This includes jumps, flat spins, barrel rolls, smashing billboards and so on. You also earn some boost by drifting, doing near misses and driving in oncoming.
In aggression class cars you earn most boost by doing takedowns, grinding, smashing and so on.
 
The way you use it is the same except for in Speed where you have to have a full boost bar before you can use your boost. This is often referred to as Burnout 2 type boost. When using a car with speed type boost you can also do boost chaining.

 

The easiest way to do a Barrel Roll is off the Barrel Roll ramps or Split ramps as they are called in the game. These ramps can be found throughout Paradise City. If you hit the left (or right) bit that is sticking up on these ramps with the left (or right) set of wheels it will make your car spin into a barrel roll. You can use your left stick to straighten out the roll. If your car has enough speed when you hit the ramp you can perform double, triple and even quad barrel rolls.
A Barrel Spin is the combination of a Barrel Roll and a Flat Spin. Put the two techniques together and with some practice you should be able to perform a Barrel Spin. Barrel Spins looks very cool and has a high wow factor.

A flat spin can be done on any kind of jumps and ramps. When your car hits the jump or ramp press your E-brake (x button) and push your left stick left or right. This will put your car into a flat spin. The amount of flat spin your car will get depends on your speed when you hit the ramp and how you hit the ramp. A lot of height and airtime might be good but it seems that the spin velocity is more important. The velocity at which the car spins mostly depends on how you hit the ramps and the timing of hitting your e-brake. With practice you should be able to pull off some amazing jumps.

Motor City, Big Surf Beach and Ocean View.

There is one car in the demo. You get to try out the Hunter Cavalry. This is a stunt class car. 
The stats for the car are as follows:
Speed: 2 / 10
Strength: 5 / 10
Boost: 1 / 10
To do power parking you need to find 2 or more cars that are parked fairly close together. Drive towards the cars and just before the front of your car is parallel to the back/front of the first car you want to park between hit your e-brake. You can then slide your car in between the two parked car. When you are starting to learn this it is probably a good idea to not have too much speed when you approach the cars.

To get a perfect power parking you need to make sure that your car is close (but not touching) and parallel to the curb and not touching the car in front of and behind you. If you touch the cars you are trying to park between and set off their alarms it seems that you cannot power park there again

ELO is a rating system is a method for calculating the relative skill levels of players in two-player games such as chess and Go. ELO is not an acronym. It is the family name of the system's creator, Arpad Elo (1903–1992), a Hungarian-born American physics professor.

ELO was originally invented as an improved chess rating system although it is used in many games today. It is also used as a rating system for competitive multi-player play in a number of computer games. For more information on ELO go to wikipedia.org

There are six different “online” leaderboards in Burnout Revenge. Race Ranking is the rank that is your overall ranking and is based on ELO. The higher ELO the lower the rank. Rank 1 is best and rank 75000 is the worst. All the other leaderboards has ranks from 1 to 3000. Burnout Revenge 360 leaderboards are available on the Official Burnout Revenge web site.

1. Your time is not in the top 3000 in the world for that track. If your time is not good enough it will show up as a -. Also not that lap times for player matches (unranked matches) does not register on the online leaderboards.

2. If you know for sure that your time is in the top 3000 your time is not showing because of a bug in Burnout Revenge. This problem affects both the online leaderboards and your best time that is shown when a track is loading. For some players the lap times just disappear or never register at all.

Criterion claims that there are no known bugs with this feature. BurnoutAholics.com can however confirm that there is a bug with this feature and that lap times sometimes just disappear and never show again. If you are lucky your time might have registered on the offline leaderboard.

This achievement can seem really hard to get. The clips are reset on midnight GMT of 25th of every month. If you want to get the achievement you should try and do it around this time. Here is what you need to do:

1. First check how many downloads you need to get into the top 20. If it is just after midnight (GMT) on the 25th it should be less than 50.

2. Create a short clip so that it is quick to download. Share it.

3. You need a second gamertag. Create a new silver account or just create a free trial Gold membership.

4. Add yourself as a friend to the second gamertag.

5. Go to 'Friend's Clips' on the secondary gamertag and download your clip.

6. When the clip is finished downloading but before it starts playing press your XBOX Guide button and sign out. You will be thrown back to the Burnout start screen.

7. Sign in again with the secondary profile and repeat from step 5.

8. When you have enough downloads sign in with your primary profile.

9. IMPORTANT! You now need to go to the "Top 20 Clips". If your clip is on there you will get the "Celebrity Status" achievement!

10. Now unshare your clip to make it easier for everyone else to get the achievement as well! Good luck!

In Burnout Revenge for the XBOX 360 you can set up ranked Road Rage events that counts towards your rank. Some players exploit the fact that Criterion forgot to change it so that both teams have to have the same class of cars in ranked events. Basically the host sets up the game so that his team is racing in far superior cars to the other team.

The 25th of every month, at midnight GMT. In the summer (summertime) his is the 26th of every month at 1AM GMT.

Yes, but Burnout Revenge does not support Force Feedback.

No. This must be done online in a ranked or unranked race or road rage.

This achievement description: "King of the Road! Awarded for getting ahead of all 5 rivals in an online lobby!"

To get the achievement you need to be in a full lobby (6 players). I does not matter if the race is ranked or unranked. You must have at least one takedown on all the 5 players in the lobby (green triangle). If you get this during a race you will only get the achievement when you return to the lobby after all the races have completed. If someone quits out on the way back to the lobby you will not get the achievement.

One important thing to note is that you can get this achievement without racing at all. If you are in a lobby with 4 other players that you have takedowns on you will get the achievement if another player joins (the 5th) and you have takedowns against that player.

No.

No. To get this achievement you must perfect all events in the World Tour. This does not include signature takedowns and the challenge sheets.

No. You cannot bring "guests" online in Burnout Revenge.

For your friends to be able to view your clips they need to have Burnout Revenge for the XBox 360.

The Xbox 360 version of Burnout Revenge includes several new features and improves:

  • Improved graphics and sound to utilize the power the XBox 360.
  • 10 new crash junctions.
  • Introduces online Revenge Rivals. This system allows players to keep track of their number of times they have been taken out or have taken out any given player. This number is reset every time the score is settled. Settling the score means that you take down someone that has takedowns on you. The number of times you have settled the score with a player sometimes is displayed before a race is started. When you have settled the score more than 100 times with the same player he or she will become your nemesis.
  • Burnout Clips feature, which allows to save 30 second clips of any offline race played and can be shared your friends. Your friends must have Burnout Revenge to be able to view a clip.
