I've now reached the Dominator level of races and am slowly working on perfecting everything in it, but I cannot even come close to beating the Burning Lap of White Mountain (Fearless) or the Preview on Dangerous. I swear, I was absolutely perfect on the Burning Lap but was still 3 seconds short -- I dont know how it's possible to do any better.

So if anyone has some suggestions for this accursed track, I'd appreciate it.

Well I got the top ranking on the Xbox version. Dont have the 360 version and I'm certainly not playing it again


I didnt get all the Burnout crashes/stunts or whatever the hell they're called though. That would take too much time to achieve



And Burnout Revenge wasn't that difficult at all


they didn't change anything for the 360 version, did they? Or is it just basically the same exact game?

I got 100% completion on the PS2 version back when it came out. The thing is, the game says I have 100%, but in reality there were 4 or 5 objectives or whatever that I never got (some signature takedowns I think). I don't know if the game just rounds up, or if the fact that I had BO3 data at the start boosted it a little.

There was one crash event I had to replay probably 100 times before I got it.

Burnout is a blast, imo, can't wait to see a built-from-the-ground-up PS3 or 360 version appear.

I burnt out on Burnout. That white mountain burning lap is possible. I think I wasted roughly 4 hours of my life to perfect it.

I quit at about 96%. I found that Traffic Attack events were ultimately the worst ones to try to perfect. Some of them are just plain evil in their design. The way you get forced into oncoming traffic, the long stretches with no cars to shunt, I just found it to become not very fun at all when it becomes less about crashing shit and more about driving within their guidelines. I think Burnout has a bit of identity crisis in its events. Road Rage and Elimination are far and away the best IMO. Of course the Crash Junctions are cool too but after so many of them I found I got desensitized to the awesomeness of all the crashing and just played through them simply to unlock the achievement.

I got 1000 points on Burnout on 360, I'll try and help. My tag is DC ARENA if you want to look at my list for the game.

The White Mountain Burning Lap is a very tough event, but its not impossible. I presume you're using the various shortcuts on the track? The most important thing to remember is to boost all the time, evening through corners and don't ever, ever crash.

- There are two right at the start (after the forked bridge). Use both of these.


- For the entire lap keep your finger pressed down on the boost, don't ever let up. If you permanently drive on the wrong side of the road your boost guage will stay maxed out.


- Later in the stage there is a little town you drive through, with two routes. On the 2nd route (the easier one to get to without crahsing) has a fork in the road which takes you either side of the clocktower building. Take the RIGHT side route and evade any traffic in that section. There are a couple of walls that stick out along here but you should be good.


- Drive up the set of stairs and make your way up the winding road. Drift every corner and try out stay out of the dirt as much as possible.


- You'll soon arrive at the tunnel where there is the dirt road to the left. Take this short cut.


- After a while the dirt road splits and to the left is another dirt road. DON'T take that one, its way too risky and you'll be hitting restart before you know it. So continue along the main dirt road and you'll then get back onto the main road in the tunnel. You should just miss the roof of the tunnel (its quite low).


- From here its just a couple of corners left. Remember to drift everything (tapping brake button), and always hold Boost down.


I had about a 1/2 second left when I did it. I reckon that one, along with the final Burning Lap (Indy racecar around Motor City) are the games hardest events. I really struggled with the final BL on Xbox, but on Xbox 360 they have adjusted the time slightly (and made most of the other BL's harder as they were too easy on Xbox).

Hope this helps.

Here's a video of the mountain Preview Event that I made a week ago for someone on the Xbox Forums: http://media.putfile.com/Burnout-Revenge-clip-01

Although I don't have a Video of the Burning Lap, the tips provided by dc765 are good enough. Except I would drive under the clocktower instead of around it towards the stairs.

To drive through the Clocktower you have to take the very first left into the town don't you (instead of 2nd left like I took) ? I didn't even try that route until after I completed the game and saw some guys online running that route. It's quite risky by all accounts, but it is probably a little quicker than the route I mentioned.

The challenges/acheivements aren't impossible, but dammit they are work. I'm trying to work on some of them now, but it's the Burning laps that kick me in the @$$. Youhave to drive perfectly and take the correct shortcuts AND get enough points to put you over the top for a perfect rank. Like I said, it can be done, but it takes some focus.

Isn't there one for perfecting the entire game? I'm sure they assumed many players would play the game through in succession, completing the previous rank (for the most part) before beginning the next one. Getting points for completing elite AND THEN for completing the game simultaneously sounds a bit redundant.

The White mountain Burning Lap is not really that hard when taking all the short cuts.

Comparing to one of the traffic attack events it's freakin' easy. Some of the last traffic attack events are brutal. Mainly because of some completely empty stretches of road and too little time on the clock after a crash..

Not really a glitch, every 25th of the month they reset the scores, so those that don't have the achievement, would get a chance too.

I cannot even get a gold on the first burning lap. That is probably because Burnout Revenge is pretty much exclusively the game we play when everyone is wasted over here. It is so frustrating because I have pretty much earned golds on every event in the game with the exception of burning lap levels. I just never know which shortcuts are actually faster and I feel like I have done it perfect several times only to come up a second or two short. Maybe I just suck.

My main issue seems to be not having a high enough rating (ie awesome) when I finish a burning lap fast enough. This game is great, but I generally play it off and on, so it's been slow going through all the races etc.

Hmm, not really although it's a different type of game so it's hard to compare. PGR is different because there arent shortcuts -- you just have to be perfect basically. In BOR, you gotta locate the shortcuts and then decide which one is best to use AND be perfect, but I still think PGR is probably harder. I've managed 14/21 achievements on that but I havent played in awhile since going back to it after a game like Burnout is impossible.

I got all perfects. Also got all platinums on pgr3 and finished RR6. Anyway, the white mountain burning lap, the key is the bends. I had a lot of trouble until I adjusted my strategy in taking those huge bends. It's been awhile but what I remember is to come out of them asap and don't swing too wide, really similiar to RR6. Come out on the inside past the apex and gas it. Maintain speed and don't drift out (if you do there are so many of these bends that the watsed time adds up. A really annoying thing about this track is that before you hit the town you could take the first left (shortcut) before the left at the end. However if you do this there is a jump which could never make and always ended up hitting the wall facing. I tried to slow down a bit so I would go underneath the facade but I found that took off too much time. So just take the left at the end. Also use the drift smartly, that is sometimes you need to slow a bit coming into a turn using the brake to drift staying on the road to not drift out so wide.

Edit: BTW I very underrated game graphically. I wasn't expecting such a good looking game.

Uploading a video, sending it to friends, etc.
Dunno how many people around here have it, but we could all try to vote for each others videos when they reset around the 25th of the month. That gets us each another achievement.

Those are what I have left :D One burning lap and a few traffic attack events in the last 2 rankings. I generally don't boost while doing them, as I always end up crashing and losing time. I'll only boost if there's a section without cars to check. These later ones are certainly getting on my tits though.
