How do you beat Diamond Sands?Sent in by DOAHunterX Start by going forward in your backlash and lash the first half of the first building with your back side, then turn around and go through the tunnel. Then lash the other end, just like you did before, then go forward and destroy the two blue gas plants near the next tunnel. To do it quickly, lash one of them, then rub on them in the little area between the railroads and around the edge of the tunnel entrance. Do not go through the tunnel yet, and lash apart the halves of the next three shacks, then turn back and go through the tunnel that I told you not to go through yet (to do it quicker, lash in one direction, then finish the job on the halves by doing it going back). Then, do a long slide through each "periphary" shack and hit the pieces of the other half, then finish the job as you did all those other times. After finishing the five shack, both halves, you now have to push the TNT into the building. This is harder now than with the Ramdozer, due to Backlash's slower speed and harder control, but Rare made it easier by setting each one up close. If you feel like cheating, you can do the instant demolition cheat on the last part of the building that stand in the way of the carrier (park right next to it and hold the Z button for a few seconds).
ShortcutSent in by Nathan Fouse at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! On Jade Plateu, after you pass the second bridge look to the right, you should see a building, go a little farther and turn right just beside the building there will be a little path go in it, there should be a bunch of other like building things avoid them until you get to the last one, plow through it. That should save you some time. After you beat the first selection (or when you can go to Jade Plateu go there) go to Jade Plateu. Pick your vehicle, try to get a fast sort of powerful vehicle, drive past the bridge, once you get past the bridge look toward the right till you see a green path off the road, go down it. There is your first shortcut.
Blow up the wallSent in by Nick If you can't get into position to use the Z trick to blow something up, here's something that works even better! Take your vehicle and push it as far is it will let you go against a wall. If you're using the Ramdozer, your shovel should be bouncing up and down. ______= wall B= vehicle a= your guy _________ B Next, hit Z so you walk out of the vehicle. Line it up so that the vehicle is between you and the wall. _________ B a Now, press and hold the direction of the wall (in this case up). Keep holding it after you get in, and the vehicle will turn and blow up the wall! I've only gotten this to work with the Ramdozer. It's really helpful in Ebony Coast, when you can't always get into position to use the Z trick on those three TNT buildings.
Short-cut in the Skerries Bonus AreaSent in by Code Hunter There is a short-cut in the Skerries Bonus Area. Just after you come off the second bridge, you can turn and magically go through the mountain. When you come out the other side, you'll almost be at the finish line. Do this for all 4 laps to ensure the best possible time.
Two extra coursesSent in by Code Hunter When you successfully complete every mission and find all six of the scientists, you will be treated to two extra courses. The first extra mission includes you having to clear a town of all objects in order to allow a Space Shuttle emergency land. The second includes you clearing all buildings off the Moon! There is also a third extra mission which can only be accessed by getting a perfect score.
Turbo StartSent in by Code Hunter You can get a Turbo Start on timed events by pressing the acceleration button on the last "beep" just as the light turns green. You must time it perfectly for it to work.
Race a ghost carSent in by Code Hunter Go around the race course, and complete the number of laps it says to. Next go back with a different vehicle. You will then be racing a ghost car. It being the one you used previously, and will copy what you did last.
Time TrialsSent in by Code Hunter at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! To get Time Trials, get a Gold medal in every level, including the racing ones.
Tips for getting platinum medals in Oyster HarborSent in by Code Hunter These are some tips for getting platinum medals in Oyster Harbor. Just beating this level alone was hard, but a platinum medal?!! This happens to be the easiest medal in the whole game! Just use the instant explosion (hold down Z facing a building) on the bridge and final building. Forget the blocks and barges, only buildings count. The crates and the other building are not a problem for your bulldozer. This strategy almost always nets you a platinum and a record time. Same for Beeton Tracks-use that Z button. Second is Diamond Sands. First destroy the left side of the first station. Before destroying the second, turn around and bash the other side. Skip the second station and destroy the blue gas tanks. The entire second station will be gone!
PlatinumSent in by Code Hunter After you finish the stages when you have to do it in a faster speed, you can now do every stage to try to get a Platinum!!! This is almost impossible to do, on level one you have to beat the stage at 14.0 seconds.
Color rings tipSent in by Code Hunter Around stages there are two different color rings. If the ring is red you have found all the extra stages if the ring is green there is more to go.
Pac-ManSent in by Code Hunter at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! When you beat Oyster Harbor, find the communication device (In a building near the first barge, it must be destroyed by TNT). Then you exit the stage and go to the bonus round, known as Gibbon's Gate there you will be in a giant game of PAC-MAN although you are Backlash against big Bulldozers of different color, Green is the fastest so watch-out.
Z-Button TricksSent in by Code Hunter Some people say the Z button trick is useless in Blast Corps. Certain levels are made very easy by the proper application of this trick, making platinum time a cinch! Get a really fast time on Oyster Harbor using a combination of tricks. First, it is not necessary to have the boats in place or fill the holes in order to complete the level. Second, it is possible to destroy the series of walls that one usually uses the TNT on, as well as the final building, using the Z button trick. So by destroying the small blocks in the beginning of the course using the Ramdozer, and using the Z button trick on the buildings, one can do the level in under 1:30, where the platinum time is 2:55! Another hugely useful application of the Z button trick is on Beeton Tracks. Normally, one would have to move the Ramdozer across the tracks and use the TNT to blow up the big building. Instead, the Z button trick can blow it up, resulting in a time of around 33 seconds, instead of the platinum time of 1:15! A somewhat less useful application of the Z button trick is on the last huge building on Diamond Sands. Most of it is destroyed by TNT, but the remaining part of the building can be destroyed without using the TNT on the other side of the tracks. Just use the magic Z button! There are a few other useful application of this trick, but none as useful as the first two. It seems that the only win condition for each level is that no buildings be blocking the carrier. Everything else can be ignored, even if green arrows are pointing to it. Using this strategy, some levels have extremely easy platinum times.
Bonus Levels: Extra PlanetsSent in by Code Hunter at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! In addition to the moon you can reach: Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Neptune, and there may be more (since there are four more planets in the solar system). The pre-mission briefing clearly states that to continue on "perhaps even more missions, one must attain a perfect score." To play these levels you must get a gold medal in each of the regular stages (including all training/bonus levels, Shuttle Clear, and the Moon). Once you have done this you get a congratulations message and Mercury will open up, after you beat it Venus will open, and so on. If you've attained gold medals in all the planets, you will get a message asking to "Do it Faster," which means going back to all of the missile stages; medals will then be awarded based on time. But you're still not yet! If you received a gold in all of the timed-missile stages you will be asked to do it even faster to earn platinum medals in every stage you've played so far!
Bonus Level: MoonSent in by Code Hunter After saving the space shuttle you'll have completed the transition level that leads the Blast Corps into outer space. You'll fly to the moon on the space shuttle and wreak havoc there, having to destroy several constructs within six minutes. Backlash is the only vehicle that you can choose. Gravity is different, much like it would be on the moon, and control of ones vehicle is even more of necessary than ever. As in the Earth's levels, look for ditches and hills to launch Backlash into buildings with even more power. This level is truly fun.
Bonus Level: Shuttle IslandSent in by Code Hunter The new challenge is to clear a path for a runaway space shuttle. The space shuttle has been battered and disabled and must land in the middle of a city. The Blast Corps must destroy the entire city to let it land. To beat this level, you must locate Thunderfist. At the level's immediate beginning, drive right, and follow the perimeter of the buildings on your left. You'll take a left, and then drive straight until you reach a set of buildings with dynamite crates surrounding them. Blow up the first one, and inside it is the Thunderfist. Use this awesome destructor to annihilate the city.
WalkthroughSent in by Koopa Troopa at The Unofficial World of Nintendo!!! Argent Towers How do I get all the vehicles in Argent Towers? First, use the Backlash to destroy all the buildings that it can. Then, use it to push the large grey block out from in front of the ramp. Get out of the Backlash, go down the ramp and get into the Ram Dozer. Use it to push the TNT block over to the wooden door. When the door is destroyed, get out of the Ram Dozer and climb into the Train (you won't be able to see it). Drive the Train through the tunnel until you get to the Ballista. Use the Ballista's missiles to destroy the wooden door down in the pit on the right side of the area. Get out of the Ballista, walk down the ramp into the pit and go through the long tunnel (you will only see your driver's shadow as he is walking underground) until you come to the J-Bomb. How do I destroy the flashing tower in Argent Towers? Use the Motorcycle's missiles to destroy the flashing tower. It is one of the buildings that must be destroyed to achieve 100%. How do I do find the Scientist in Argent Towers? The flashing tower is actually a marker for a hidden tunnel. Go back into the tunnel and you will find another tunnel going off to the left at the flashing tower. You will find a Police Car that will help you navigate the maze. The Scientist is at the end of the maze. How do I find the Scientist? The flashing tower is actually a marker for a hidden tunnel. Go back into the tunnel and you will find another tunnel going off to the left at the flashing tower. You will find a Police Car that will help you navigate the maze. The Scientist is at the end of the maze. Havoc District Why can't I get 100% of the buildings in this course? This course has some difficult things to find that need to be destroyed to earn 100%. There are four lights on the top of the bridge that need to be destroyed. Also, there is an island with RDUs and a lighthouse in the Southwest corner of the area. There are five silver balls out in the water that must destroyed as well. How do I get to those tunnels underneath the water? Use the J-Bomb to get on top of the cliff above the Semi. You will find a darker patch of grass near the cliff edge. Step on the patch and you will drop down to the tunnels. Use the Muscle Car to go down the next tunnel and more RDUs. Tempest City How do I get 100% of all the buildings? On the far right side of the area, you will find a large gray building with lights around its sides. If you shoot the middle part of the building, the light will go out. Keep shooting until you destroy that section of the building. It takes a lot of missiles, so it may not look like you are doing damage to it. When destroyed, you will have access to a ramp to get up to the top. You will find a Communication Tower, the rest of the Buildings and the first Scientist. Beeton Tracks How am I supposed to destroy that big building near the end of the tracks? This may be your first encounter with the Crane. You need to drive the Ram Dozer onto the Crane's platform, get out of the Ram Dozer and assume the controls of the Crane. Place the Ram Dozer on the other side of the tracks so that you can push the TNT Crate into the building. Echo Marches Where are the two Communication Towers? The first one you will probably find is near where you pick up the barge. The second one is a bit trickier to find. Near the Semi, if you look in the open field, you will find a tall, narrow tower of rock. There is a rock platform at the top of the tower. Use J-Bomb to fly up to it. What am I supposed to do with the arrows pointing to the train track and the moat? You will need to bring the Train over to the ramps and move the Barge to make a bridge. I suggest that you take your J-Bomb only to the first tunnel, exit the J-Bomb and run the Man through the tunnel to get to the train. That way, you won't have far to go to get back into the J-Bomb. You can drive the Muscle Car through the tunnel, but time is of the essence in this course! Ironstone Mine How do I find the Scientist in this course? You will need to use all of the vehicles available in this stage. Near the end of the stage, you will find a Train that you will need to back-up all the way to the end of the tracks. Exit the train, cross the pedestrian bridge and follow the path until you locate the Ram Dozer. Drive the Ram Dozer onto the Crane's platform. Set the platform down on the other side of the tracks. Use the Ram Dozer to push the TNT Crate into the large building. This will open a tunnel filled with RDUs. This is the hiding spot of the scientist. Ebony Coast How do I find the Scientist in this course? This is one of the trickier Scientists to find. Near the beginning of the stage, you will see some grey stones blocking the train track. To destroy the grey stones, use the Ram Dozer to push the TNT Crate into them. On the other side of the tunnel, you will see an "Easter Island" statue (J-Bomb is inside it). Once you have cleared the tracks, take the Ram Dozer and the Train all the way to the train station at the end of the tracks. Use the Ram Dozer to destroy the train station. Be careful not to activate the TNT Crate. When everything is cleared away, use the Ram Dozer to push the TNT Crate onto the Train's flatbed. Get out of the Ram Dozer, get into the Train and back it up all the way to the "Easter Island" statue. This TNT Crate has a slow detonation time, so you will have time to back it up all the way. Make sure to position the TNT Crate so that it is next to the statue. When the statue is destroyed, you will have access to the J-Bomb. The Scientist is in a hidden cove to the right of the tunnel that the Missile Truck drove through.. How do I get 100% RDUs and Buildings? Using the J-Bomb, find the large island in the Northwest corner of this area. The island has a large "field hieroglyphic" of a man holding a spear. Near the there will be three more "Easter Island" statues and a bunch of RDUs near the northern tip of the island. Glory Crossing How do I find the Scientist? If you drive straight ahead in the direction that the Semi is pointing, you will find a tunnel that goes to the Scientist. Crystal Rift How do I get the Van? Use the Ram Dozer to push the dark gray block out of the first tunnel. Keep pushing it to the other side of the road into the next tunnel. The block will fall into position and allow you to drive the Ram Dozer through the tunnel and get the Van. Oyster Harbor How am I supposed to get through this stage? Start off by using the Ballista's missiles to destroy the first set of containers in the Truck's path. Next, destroy the containers that block the path to the Ram Dozer. Exit the Ballista, run down the ramp and get into the Ram Dozer. Quickly clear the rest of the containers in the Truck's path. Clear a path to the right of where you got the Ram Dozer and you will find a number of TNT Crates. Exit the Ram Dozer, climb into the Crane and bring the platform around to the Ram Dozer. Exit the Crane, jump back into the Ram Dozer and use it to push a TNT Crate onto the platform. Exit the Ram Dozer, get back into the crane and swing the platform around so that the TNT Crate will be detonated on the middle of building. Note: This building can be destroyed piece by piece, so be sure to detonate the TNT Crate at the place indicated by the arrows! To detonate the TNT Crate, lower the platform onto the building. Exit the Crane, jump back into the Ram Dozer and drive to the new area that you've just opened up. You will see a bunch of holes in the ground that must be filled with the different shaped blocks. Use the Ram Dozer to push the first block into the first hole. Next, destroy the two blue-roofed buildings to the right of the first block/hole. You will see a hole that must be filled with the second block. This will give you access to two more blocks. You can save time by pushing both of these blocks into the main area at the same. Fill in the rest of the holes until you get to the last one. You will find the last block behind the two large, red fuel tanks over to the right of where all the holes are. The next obstacles are the three Barges that must be moved into position. Go past the first and second Barges and stop on the deck of the third. Get into the Barge, back it all the way up into position and then drive the Ram Dozer to the pedestrian bridge. Cross the bridge, run to the left to the second Barge and back it up into position. Depending on the position of the Truck and it's distance to the first Barge, this next step can be done before the Truck passes the first Barge or after. Drive the Ram Dozer onto the deck of the first Barge. Sail it all the way forward and use the Ram Dozer to push the TNT Crate onto the deck. Sail the Barge back into position for the Truck and push the TNT Crate all the way to the end. There will be a large building that can only be destroyed with the TNT Crate. How do I get the Scientist in this course? Once you have completed the area, go back in and work your way back to the Barges. As in the first time around, load the TNT Crate onto the first barge. Use the TNT Crate to destroy the white blocks that serve as the stopping point for the third Barge. Get back in the Barge and back it all the way up to the Scientist. Jade Plateau What's the best vehicle to use? Probably the Muscle Car since it doesn't lose any speed on the dirt or swamp. Using this car, you can take the shortcut to the right after you cross the first bridge without losing any speed. Salvage Wharf What's the best vehicle to use? The Ram Dozer since it makes up in destructive power and ease of use from what it lacks in speed. Marine Quarter What's the best vehicle to use? Probably the Van since it combines high speed with tight cornering; perfect for any race course on streets. Twilight Foundry What's the best vehicle to use? Probably the Ram Dozer since it combines size (you won't have to run right over the RDU to activate it) and destructive power with easy handling. Cooter Creek What's the best vehicle to use? Probably the Muscle Car since it doesn't lose speed in the off-road areas. You can cut across the rocks to shorten your laps. Skerries What's the best vehicle to use? Probably the Van due to its high-speed and excellent handling. There is a short-cut after the second bridge. Look for the indentation on the rock wall and you can drive right through a hidden tunnel. Sleek Streets What's the best vehicle to use? The Van since it combines high speed with excellent handling. Moraine Chase What's the best vehicle to use? Probably the Muscle Car since it doesn't lose speed in the off-road areas. You can cut across the rocks to shorten your laps. If you cut across the rocks after the third stone "gate," you can cut down on your lap time. Why can't I use the Sideswipe's jackhammer (or) the Ballista's missiles anymore? The jackhammer and missiles are limited items. If you run out, drive past an ammo crate to pick up more. Ammo crates are usually scattered throughout a stage that uses the Sideswipe or Ballista. How do I know if I've found everything in a particular course? If you go back out to the World Map screen, the Course will be circled in Red. If it is circled in Green, then you have missed something--usually a Communication Tower. I went back in the stage, completed more of the goals, but now it doesn't show? If you go back into a stage to work on achieving 100% in all categories, make sure you exit the stage through the Semi. This is the only way to save your progress! What does this Radar do for me? The Radar in this game gives the general position of the Semi in relation to where you are located. If the Yellow Block (the Semi) is at the top of the Radar, then you need to go straight up to get to it. How do I get 100% in this Course! In order to grab the gold medal in each course, you'll need to get 100% in several categories. Luckily, most of the categories are linked in some way. First, you will need to destroy all of the buildings. This, in turn, will allow you to locate all of the Survivors. Finally, you'll need to locate all the RDUs. This can be the most difficult category to complete since the RDUs are often well-hidden. Be sure to use all the available vehicles to search every square inch of the course. RDUs are often in groups, so make sure you didn't skip one in a long line of them. GPC Note: Check the Common Questions for the individual courses if someone is having a lot of difficulty finding 100% in a particular course.
