Read this section first!

Mode Description

Burnout 3 World Tour This is the main section of the game, and it’s divided into three parts: USA, Europe and Far East. There are 173 events to complete in the three areas, with 73 of these being Race Events and 100 being Crash Events. Our Events walkthrough section covers the actual “meat” of the game, detailing every one of the 173 events and what you’ll earn by completing each one.

Single Event

Drifting is an absolute key racing technique where you purposely try to slide your car through a turn while maintaining control. To initiate a drift, try this:

  1. When entering a turn, retain as much speed as possible.
  2. Tap the brake as you enter the turn.
  3. Once the car starts sliding, get back on the gas and hold that control.
  4. You’ll only need to adjust if your entry speed was wrong or you initiated the drift too early or too late. A little practice goes a long way with drifting.

Earning Mass Quantities Of Burnout Points

As you can see from the chart above, there is no “easy” way to accumulate the amount of Burnout Points needed to unlock some of the game’s finer cars. Earning 50 or even 100 BPs at a crack isn’t the way to go at it. The better and easier way is to find an event or track where you are “in the groove” as far as earning Takedowns goes. You’ll get more BPs than you know what to do with!

Below is a complete chart of all the possible in-game Burnout Point (BP) and boost rewards. You’ll find the actual move name (what the game displays on the HUD), the description of how to do it, and then how many BP and Boost Units you’ll be rewarded for executing that particular move. Notice that many moves are sorted into three categories, with the greater severities rewarding greater amounts. The Boost Bar capacity can only be increased by executing a Takedown, as described on the next page. The actual number of units in each bar is shown below, for your easy reference.

Avoiding Traffic

Although nothing’s ever guaranteed in Burnout 3, one of the better ways to avoid oncoming traffic is to hug the left or right guard rail while boosting. Instead of trying to zig-zag your way through large groups of cars, sometimes this is the better choice. Most of the time it’s safe to do this on straights or less-than-extreme curves. Both outgoing and oncoming traffic usually stay in the middle lanes and leave the shoulders alone.

You’ll get more BPs than you know what to do with!

TakeDown BP and Boost Rewards

Anytime you use a Takedown against another car, you’ll earn BPs toward your cumulative total. As mentioned in the “Burnout Tip!” section on the previous
page, Takedowns are the fastest and most effective way to stack up gobs and gobs of BPs.

Accumulating Insane Crash Mode Cash
It’s no secret that you’ll need a fast way to accumulate the virtual fortune required to unlock the serious “heavy” vehicles in Burnout 3. The best way to earn it — since all Crash Mode cash is saved — is to find whatever Crash Event you’re particularly good at, and repeat it over and over. Any of the shorter events where a 4x Multiplier is guaranteed should be an easy way to earn $500-$750k per run.

Unlocking the Cars
The 67 cars in Burnout 3: Takedown are unlocked in a multitude of ways. Some are unlocked by your cumulative Burnout Point (BP) total, some are unlocked by your cumulative Crash Mode cash total, some are unlocked by earning gold medals on events, and some are unlocked by your cumulative Takedown total. That’s one of the greatest joys of Burnout; it’s as if no statistic, medal, trophy or pile of cash is for show. Almost everything is put toward a total or tally to help you unlock faster and more exotic cars.

Understanding the Statistics

In the following appendix you’ll find two statistics listed next to each car.
• Top Speed
Top speed rates the overall speed and acceleration of the car. This also affects the intensity of the boost. The higher the number here, the faster the car can go, plain and simple. The highest rating is a 10, and the lowest is a 1.
• Weight
Weight is the car’s overall Takedown level. The higher the rating, the easier it is to smack lighter cars off the road. It also works in reverse, where heavier cars are less prone to getting knocked around by lighter cars.
(Note: Along with the statistics, you’ll find a column labeled “Unlock,” which describes the exact method to earn the car in question.)
