MotorStorm: Pacific Rift Hints, Tips, Tricks, Secrets, & Glitches

Scorched Short Cut

In one of the craters near the end the track there you will be able to go straight through the middle recommend with dirtbike.

Second Short Cut In Scorched Track

At the beginning, go far to the right and there will be directions of signs and there will be lots of rocks.

What The Red Signs Mean

When you see a Red Sign that means there is Volcanic Lava around. Usually you can see the Lava but the signs are useful when the lava is in a trench and a lot of trenches you can't see. I know there is a trench that you can't see on the track Scorched. Try not to get to close to the Red Signs

What The Blue Signs Mean

When you see a blue sign posted right in the middle of the water, that means that you are not supposed to drive in that part of the water. The blue sign indicates that that is extremely deep water. Even Monster trucks and Big Rigs cannot go in that deep of water. The blue sign looks like one of the street signs that you see such as a Stop Sign or a X-ing Sign.

Tips For Using Turbo

If you are like me and like to use turbo a lot and you just hold down the X Button until the meter fills up and then you have to wait and wait for the turbo to cool back down, this is a tip for you. If you are racing in a track with water, you need to get in that water some how some way. If you are a Dirtbike, ATV, Buggy, or a Rally Car and even a Racing, sometimes you need to get in really shallow water or if it is nothing but deep water you just need to barely go on the edges of the water because other wise you will get stuck. If you are any other vehicle you can go right through the water with no trouble most of the time. You can tell when your turbo is cooling off when your meter looks wet and smokey. You really want to pay attention when you are around Fire or Lava because Fire and Lava heats up your Turbo very fast. You don't want to hold X down when you are around Fire or Lava. The way you can tell when it is heating up fast is when your meter just plainly combusts.

Win Races Easier

Air Zone: On air zone you probably want to use a motorcycle,ATV,Buggy or even sometimes a Rally Car.
Fire Zone: On Fire Zone motorcycles,ATVs,Racing trucks,Buggies,and even Big Rigs and mudpluggers are good.
WaterZone: On water zone you want to use a Buggy,Rally Car,Racing Trucks,Big Rigs,Monster Trucks,mudpluggers and you definitely don't want to use a Motorcycle or ATV because of the deep water but they are good on the tracks with waterfalls and caves.
Earth Zone: You want to use the mudplugger,Buggy,Rally Car,Racing Truck most of the time but basicly any vehicle is alright in this zone.
