The Eight Vehicle Types Of ONRUSH


What is Codemasters talking about when they mention “eight vehicle types” in their upcoming arcade racer ONRUSH? They published an explanation today…how do the types work and what are the benefits of each?

Each car in ONRUSH has three special moves: an ability (which can be used at any time), a trait (which benefits you indirectly), and an extra-powerful move called Rush which can only be unleashed after a meter is built up. All cars in the game belong to one of eight classes:

–        RUSH Firewall: RUSHing leaves a destructive trail of fire scorching the earth behind
–        ABILITY Crashbang: Your Tombstones are blinding when collected by opponents
–        TRAIT Tumbler: Earn RUSH directly from front and back flips

–        RUSH Drain: RUSHing drains boost from all opponents in range
–        ABILITY Slam: Heavy landings trigger a shockwave that makes nearby enemies vulnerable
–        TRAIT Show-Off: Earn RUSH directly from performing tricks

–        RUSH Turbulence: RUSHing leaves a disruptive wake of turbulent air behind
–        ABILITY Touchdown: Timed boost landings are more effective
–        TRAIT Spiral: Earn RUSH directly from performing barrel rolls

–        RUSH Bulldoze: Plow through opponents with a physically larger RUSH effect
–        ABILITY Airstrike: Improved magnetism on in-air attacks
–        TRAIT Daredevil: Earn RUSH from driving near enemies

–        RUSH Rampage: Refill your RUSH gauge with every successful takedown
–        ABILIT Surge: Initial boost usage is more powerful but more costly
–        TRAI Pinpoint: Earn RUSH directly from performing near misses

–        RUSH Energize: RUSHing supplies nearby teammates with boost
–        ABILITY Restock: Drop boost pick-ups for your team when you boost
–        TRAIT Unite: Earn RUSH directly from driving near teammates

–        RUSH Blockade: RUSHing drops a trail of blockades that slow your opponents down
–        ABILITY Shield: Give nearby teammates a shield that offers protection from big hits
–        TRAIT Impact: Earn RUSH directly from taking down opponents

–        RUSH Blackout: RUSHing blinds any opponent following behind
–        ABILITY Shutdown: Hit opponents to temporarily disable their boost
–        TRAIT Bully: Earn RUSH directly from taking down fodder

These eight types are further defined — with visuals — in Codemasters’ new ONRUSH trailer, which is embedded below. ONRUSH will be released for Playstation 4 and XBox One on June 5.
