Welcome to the Campaign

In The Campaign, (previously The Tournament), each Commander has three difficulty levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. As you defeat each Commander you’ll unlock progressively more challenging missions. Fine-tune your driving skills by completing all 27 missions. Think you have what it takes?

SELECT A COMMANDER TO MEET A FEW OF YOUR COMPETITORS:

CAM

Ornery, combative and arrogant, Charge is fearless to the point of stupidity. And while his driving style lacks subtlety, he more than makes up for it with brute force and raw speed.

CHARGE

Ornery, combative and arrogant, Charge is fearless to the point of stupidity. And while his driving style lacks subtlety, he more than makes up for it with brute force and raw speed.

FUZZ

Kicked off the Highway Patrol for reckless driving, Fuzz took his devil-may-care attitude and high-speed chase experience to the street racing world. He laughs off danger and charms everyone he meets, including his opponents.

REV

A punk street racer who’s in it for the thrill, Rev has yet to meet a ride she doesn’t like. Quick to heckle opponents, she’s a ruthless competitor with some serious skills.

SEVER

A lone wolf who prefers actions to words, Sever is constantly pushing the limits. He has no time for a weak opponent, but race hard and show some skill and you just might earn his respect.

Difficulty Levels

Challenge and defeat each Commander in Campaign to unlock progressively more challenging missions. Commanders now have three difficulty levels: Bronze, Silver, and Gold.

Weapon Types

Wonder which weapon in Anki OVERDRIVE best suits your firing style?

SELECT WEAPON TYPE TO LEARN MORE:

AREA OF EFFECT

Area of Effect Weapons inflict damage on all nearby opponents.

TIP: If you find yourself neck and neck, hold the trigger down and fire away.

LONG RANGE

Long Range Weapons have extended reach, but a narrow blast radius.

TIP: Make sure you’re lined up on a straightaway for maximum impact with this highly pre-cise weapon type.

SHORT RANGE

Short range Weapons have limited reach, but a wide blast radius.

TIP: Typically semi-automatic, Short Range Weapons require a trigger press for each shot, but also tend to do more immediate damage than their medium-ranged cousins.

Support Items

Unique upgrades that enhance your speed, steering, weapons, and more.

SELECT WEAPON TYPE TO LEARN MORE:

SHIELDS

Temporarily protect yourself against all enemy attacks.

TIP: Use only when you anticipate you’ll take damage.

TIP: Hold down the button to prolong the effect and have a bit more control.

TRACTOR BEAMS

Slow down opponents in front of you.

TIP: Most useful in a Race Game.

BOOSTS

Use for a huge increase in speed, but be careful to stay on the track!

TIP: Best used on the long straight-away parts of a track.

REVERSE DRIVES

Temporarily reverse direction to surprise your opponents

TIP: If hit by the Tractor Beam item while driving in reverse, you'll speed up instead of slow down.

Weapons and Special Items fire differently. In the Garage you can select a Support Item or Weapon to see what firing rate is being used.
