Current Accelerate Alpha general strategy and tips

I’ve noticed a few things after playing Accelerate for a while that I wish I had known from the beginning and figured I would share them here.

  • Use [a or d] + shift to drift around corners instead of space. Jumping can throw off your drift. This is also the default drift for controllers which makes it a bit more difficult to handle.
  • The projectiles are very laggy visually, but the sound is usually correct (ish), even from different parts of the track.
  • Keep items you can drop behind you until you get to another box to block some of projectiles, and also dropping them just before item boxes to limit item boxes across each lap, giving a better lead.
  • You must honk while passing and during the results. It is tradition.
