Weapons and Power-ups in Dirtbags MotorClub are found as pickups throughout the race. They will appear on the track in spinning cardboard boxes. There are two types of weapon box: -Closed Boxes give the racer one of the weapons available to them based on their equipped parts. -Open Boxes give the racer the weapon that is inside the box, regardless of the vehicle's parts.
A volatile super powered rocket, that fires perfectly straight. The warhead will detonate if it strikes a racer or wall. Additionally, two seconds after launch the Beast will detect any racers in a large area and detonate if it finds one. The massive blast radius makes it particularly strong against several clumped up racers.
The bread and butter weapon. Every vehicle will be able to pick up this weapon from mystery boxes, regardless of equipped parts. The missile will fire forward, weaving back and fourth until it detects a racer, at which point it will slow down and home in on them.
An advanced missile that will attempt to follow the path of the road, bouncing up and down, until it detects a racer, at which point it will slow down and home in on them. After locking onto a target its behavior is identical to a standard missile. The roadhound will be destroyed if it strikes a wall or an obstacle, so firing down the center of the road will yield the best results.
Fast moving projectiles that fire perfectly straight. At base level rockets come in packs of 3. With no homing capability, but a predictable path, the rockets reward good prediction and aim. Alternatively firing all the rockets in quick succession can also be effective.
Speed: 84, 64 after target lock
Duration: 5, 10 after target lock
Homing: Very Strong
Blast Radius: None
Similar to the basic missile, but slower and with far greater homing capabilities. The seeker will fire forward, weaving back and fourth until it detects a racer, at which point it will slow down and home in on them. Near impossible to outmaneuver, however some of the faster racers may be able to keep ahead of the seeker.
Duration: 1 Lap
Homing: Follow Road
Damage: 0, shock
Blast Radius: 30 Meter Line
The most powerful offensive power-up, the wake cannot be obtained from mystery boxes, it is only available from special power boxes on certain tracks. Once fired the wake will activate forming a wall of electricity that will circle the track for one lap. Any racer hit by the wall will spin-out and be shocked. Not effective when fired from first place.
A chain of small bombs that trail behind your vehicle. Activating the weapon will drop one mine on the track where it will explode automatically after 3 seconds. You can also use the mines while they are still attached to your vehicle by swinging them into nearby racers, this makes the minimines a versatile weapon that can be used in a variety of situations.
A basic mine, the TNT can be dropped behind you, damaging the racer that collides with it, and any other nearby racers. Be mindful of where you plant TNT, its indefinite duration means it will pose a threat to you if no one runs into it before the next lap. The TNT can also be used defensively by dropping it in front of a missile that would otherwise hit you.
Duration 15 seconds
Movement: Back and fourth across the track
Blast Radius: None
A turbine that, when deployed, will activate and form a tornado that moves back and fourth along the track. Unlike other mines, the tornado will not be destroyed when it collides with a racer. Tornados become particularly dangerous when multiple are deployed in quick succession.
When activated, shoots a jet of flame out in front of your vehicle that burns and deals steady damage to any racer in it. Activating the weapon again will overload the flamethrower, causing it to explode a few seconds later, and give you a boost of speed. The flamethrower can be overloaded regardless of the flamethrowers remaining duration, reactivate it a second before time runs out to maximize its effect.
When activated, surrounds your vehicle with a protective field that will prevent all damage for the duration. Activating the power-up again will overload the forcefield, causing it to explode a second later, pushing all nearby racers away from you. The push force of the overload is particularly devastating to airborne racers.
When activated, leaves A trail of oil behind your vehicle. Any racer that drives over the oil will spinout, losing control temporarily. Turning or cutting across the track while the oil can is active can make the slick more difficult to avoid for racers behind you.
Duration: 12 seconds
The most powerful equipment type power-up, the fuel injector cannot be obtained from mystery boxes, it is only available from special power boxes on certain tracks. When activated it gives you a boost of speed, and can be reactivated every second for the next 12 seconds to boost again. Ramming other racers during a boost will cause damage and spinout other racers.
