Bonus event difficulty

26 posts in this topic

Is it just me or are these bonus events like ten times harder than anything else in the game to get the top rating for? 

Daredevil events are very strict in their maximum score requirements right from the get go and some of the Ring Challenges seem flat out impossible to get the Platinum rating for in the time frame given. I've read that co-op is a requirement to get some of those higher scores, can anyone confirm or am I just shit/in need of better vehicle mods? The Break the Target challenges aren't quite so bad as I managed a Platinum so far without too many issues (still very strict though) but don't even talk to me about those Traffic events with the spiteful AI there.

I can't do ring or drift Checkpoint challenges for the life of me :(

 

I haven't lost a race yet but I can't win any challenges.

I cant see how you can get those scores in the time given

 

Maybe they will get balanced

Here the same. Silver was my best in the Challenges. I think I am doing something wrong. Please nerf.

I go for all red and do tiny drifts just before I hit them for the extra 20 points

 

Here's an example on the first daredevil challenge, but I also recorded all the others if you're struggling with those:

Just beat both ring and drift challenge on chapter 1, took a few tries but managed to nail it with Sonic. So it's not impossible

 

Now moving on to chapter 2 !

Well the 2nd ring challenge was doable, but this 3rd... Did one try and got 750 but I think it needs 1200

I just got the game, so I don't know how hard this stuff really is. I have to say though, I hope it's hard. I LOVE kart racer style games. A lot of the ones on PS4 are way too easy, so is Mario Kart for that matter.

 

Hopefully it ends up being an Ultra Rare.

Yes it is quite difficult especially the challenges

I would recommend unlocking legendary mods for the character you are comfortable with first then come back to do the challenges.

I don't think legendary mods improve the performance over the standard mods or at least it doesn't show in the stats if they do.

please tell me that there's no Stupid Sumo Ghost that you need to beat.

 

Racing Transform platinum is ridiculously hard too, took me ages to beat all of the challenges until the ghost races when I learned that I should call it a quit, the multiplayer trophies is also a burden to unlock since you need extra more controllers and more skilled people to play on the same console which I lacks.

No ghost related trophies in this one outside of beating a friend's time which you can self-boost with a second account. This is probably easier than Transformed but still challenging.

Up to now the challenges are hard but very fun and doable with practice. The one thats gonna do my head in is the star in gp where u need ur teammates to win each race. Because its hard to control that

Just beat all challenges and got all stars and keys! Took a while but finally done.

 

Some challenges were really annoying but many in the later chapters were pretty easy, definitely doable though :)

You're correct, Legendary Mods do not affect the stats any more than the normal version of the Mod.

 

The key to these events is finding the optimal character type and Mod setup for you.

 

Examples

 

  • Technique can absorb Rings from further away, so they are better for Ring challenge events.
  • Power are better for Eggpawn Assault because they have higher defence, so they are slowed down less when hit
  • Speed have mid-range handling and high-end speed, so they are less twitchy than Technique making you steadier at Drifting past the posts, whilst having the speed to make it quickly make it around the track before the multiplier runs out which makes them ideal for Daredevil

I only used Sonic or Tails to beat the game

Same here, I used Sonic for all the events apart from the ring challenges. I found that the extra speed from Sonic (speed class) to be crucial for most of the challenges.
