The qualities needed to play Wreckfest

  • Being an ace driver
  • Knowing how to estimate who will have the advantage in different pile-up situations
  • Excellent reflexes

The first piece of advice we can give you to be a worthy pilot in Wreckfest is none other than to playEven more so if you're not used to racing games. It's important to understanding vehicle physics so you can be aggressive when the time comes!

What's more, knowing the PIT manoeuvre is a plus for being aggressive, but also for defending yourself. This is a tactic used by police forces in a chase to immobilise the target. Note that this technique is only useful if your opponent is alone; in a pack, it is likely to cause a traffic jam, which you must avoid.

It's not very complicated. To divert your target from its direction, you need to run into it from the side at a rear lightwith the right or left front edge of your vehicle. By doing this, the targeted car will be forced to pivot and end up in the wrong direction. Remember to keep the roads straight to continue on the right trajectory, or you risk coming to a standstill too.

Drifting is an art in its own right, but one that you need to master a little, despite the difficulty. The best way to understand how to drift well in Wreckfest is to listen to the advice Doc Hudson gives Flash McQueen in the Cars cartoon. "Turn right to go left. Don't forget to apply the brakes as you enter the bend.

This will be particularly useful in race mode, but not especially in demolition mode. If ZLAN 2024 is to be played out in the latter, we strongly recommend that you increase your shield, and in particular reinforce the part that hides the engine. If you don't, you risk a lightning strike! Having said that, you now know where to target your opponents.

To be even more effective in Demolition, we recommend that you learn how to control your vehicle both forwards and backwards! This will help you to get out of tricky situations more easily and, above all, more quickly.
