If there is one game that is going to turn the fortunes of the Nintendo Wii U around then it is Mario Kart 8. Today we are helping you guys out by giving you some tips that will have you beating those 150CC cups and those other players online in no time.
Mario Kart 8 Cheats
Easy Way To Unlock Things
The easiest way that you can unlock characters and karts in Mario Kart 8 is to play the 50CC cups in multi player. You see if you have three other people playing with you then without a doubt one of you is going to win the trophy. And that is all it takes. It does not matter what player wins the trophy the character is unlocked for everyone. Also playing the game this way scores you way more coins for unlocking karts, wheels and parachutes.
Boost At Start
All the Mario Kart games have a boost at the start of a race and Mario Kart 8 is no different. Getting this down can be tricky, but once you do you will be getting this boost at the start of each race. Watch the timer god down at the start of the race. As soon as the number 2 starts to go away hit the accelerator and you will get a speed boost! Learning this is essential in the 150CC cups.
Collect The Coins!!!
The coins in Mario Kart 8 do far more than just unlock stuff for your karts. They actually increase your top speed. The max coins you can collect are ten, but when you have ten coins your car will have a higher top speed. Also if there are racers just behind you make sure you collect coins even if you already have 10 to stop them from getting them.
Master The Stunt Boost
Mario Kart 8 has so many ways that you can get a little extra piece of speed. More often than not its these little speed boosts that will see you win. There are just a ton of things in Mario Kart 8 that will see your Kart go into the air. Just before you go of a jump, ramp or even something sticking out of the ground. Make sure you hit the jump button to give yourself a little speed boost.
Save The Super Horn
Mario Kart 8 has a weapon that can actually stop the Blue Shell. This is the Super Horn and if you are a skilled Mario Kart player and the very first item you get is the Super Horn then save it. If you are confident that your driving skill alone is enough to get you in first place then save that Super Horn the whole race if you need to. 150CC has a nasty habit of sticking you with a Blue Shell on the third lap. But with this new power up you have a way to combat the dreaded Blue Shell.
The Crazy 8
The Crazy 8 sees you getting eight of the best power ups in the game. It can be very tempting to save these and methodically use the items, but this is a mistake! You see if another racer crashes into you when you have the Crazy 8 then they can potentially get your star and mushroom which will them leaving you in their dust!
Hit Opponents When They Are In The Air!
Mario Kart 8 sees you in the air more than any other Mario Kart game. While Mario Kart 8 may be quicker getting you back on the track than past games. If you hit someone with a shell while they are in the air this maximizes the amount of time it takes them to get back onto the track.
