Race Icon

Race is the primary classic event type in Burnout Revenge. The aim is to complete a certain number of laps of a given track to come in first place.

Description

Races in Burnout Revenge follow the same typical rules in previous Burnout titles, and in most other arcade racers. Lap amounts in Revenge, however, vary depending on the length of the track and the Top Speed of the car the player is driving. In a starting car, a long track like White Mountain will only be a single lap, while using the fastest cars on the same track can warrant up to three. Medals are only given for placing in Third, Second and First, offering Bronze, Silver and Gold, respectively. Like all Burnout Revenge events, you can also get Star Ratings. Star Ratings are earned by driving dangerously, and increase your Burnout Rank.

As in Burnout 3, Takedowns make racing against opponents more about combat as opposed to simply overtaking them. Taking down opponents is one of the most effective ways to earn boost because it extends your boost and then fills it to the brim. Takedowns are easier to achieve in Revenge because there are now more nooks and protrusions in the walls to force rivals into (but also make it easier for the players themselves to crash). Another more violent approach to earning boost is the new Traffic Check feature. This allows you to slam into the rear of cars and vans, and is ideal for one way streets which aren't Oncoming.

Shortcuts and alternate routes are also a new aspect of the tracks to consider in Burnout Revenge. Now the main route is not the only way to travel through a track. Alternates and Shortcut routes are marked by a pair of flashing blue light beacons similar to traffic lights, and acting like goal posts (in the sense that you drive in between them). Alternates are usually just a secondary route, however Shortcuts cut corners and greatly improve lap times, providing an edge over rivals, most of whom take the normal route.
