Asphalt 8 Airborne Walkthrough Guide


Asphalt 8: Airborne. Welcome to quickgamer’s Asphalt 8: Airborne walkthrough for beginners. Not only you will find the game mechanics explained in detail, but also tips to improve your racing performance.

ABOUT NITRO.

Triggering the Nitro is easy, tap on the right side of the screen. The yellow bar at the top indicates how much you have. You can hit it up to 3 times to activate different power levels, but as the power goes up, so does the Nitro comsuption.

PERFECT NITRO. Tapping Nitro once will make a red section appear on the Nitro bar; Tap Nitro again once your Nitro bar reaches that area and you will activate a special boost.

How do you turn off Nitro?. You can exit the Nitro boost by tapping on the brake, eentering a drift will also stop it.

Filing The Nitro Bar: Fill up your Nitro Bar by executing awesome actions in-game, such as drifts, jumps, knockdowns, City havocs, Traffic Controls, Near Misses, Flat Spins and Barrel Rolls. You will also find Nitro boosts scaterred in different places on the tracks.

DRIFTING.

Tap the brake while steering to start drifting. Use drifts to navigate dangerous curves

Exiting Drift: Stop a drift by tapping the brakes or steering the car straight. A quick nitro boost will also pull you out of the drift and around particularly sharp turns.

PERFECT RUNS: Perfect runs are bonuses received during a race for clean driving. Dodge opponents and don’t hit any walls for 20 seconds to earn it.

RACE MODE.

Although tracks do repeat time after time along all Seasons, the Race Mode for each one them certainly changes quite often. Besides Classic Mode, you have Knockdown, Gate Drift, Infected and Versus, all of which are explained in detail here.

CAR RANKS: Each event in Career Mode has a recommended car rank. Use a car with the recommended rank or above, otherwise you might not be able to win, even if you have your nitro boost activated for most of the race.

CREDITS.

Credits are what you use to buy new cars and the upgrades you need to push them to the max. Earn credits by playing events in Career Mode and the World Series (ranked online multiplayer), or grab some in the Shop.

RACER LEVEL.

The Racer Level indicates how you are doing in the multiplayer modes. Play World Series events to earn experience and raise your Racer level. The higher your Racer Level, the more credits you earn in the World series.

GHOST CHALLENGE.

You can record some events in Career Mode. During these events, you can pick a ghost racer from a list and race against it on the track. Beat the Ghost for extra rewards. Challenge your friends to beat your Ghost and show them who’s the boss.

UPGRADES.

They may not be as flashy as other upgrades, but handling upgrades will make sure you are not crashing every time a curve comes up.

The fastest cars benefit the most from upgrading acceleration. What good is a high top speed if it takes too long to get there.

HOW TO CHANGE YOUR AVATAR/EMBLEM.

Each user gets a default icon or avatar for its racer. You can change your RAcer Emblem by going to your profile (accessob;e voa the Emblem at the top left of the screen on the Main Menu) tapping “info” and then tapping “Edit”

You can connect to social networks by accessing your profile (the emblem at the top left of the Main MEnu) and then tapping SOCIAL to set up your social network options.

HOW TO DO KNOCKDOWN AN OPPONENT.

In order to knockdown and opponent you should be using your nitro. Although you can sometimes ram the opponent without triggering the boost it’s risky and does not guarantee you will “break” the other car. By using Nitro, you can also prevent breaking your own car if you activate it before crashing against a random vehicle on the road.

HOW TO DO A FLAT SPIN.

Flat spins are performed on regular ramps. You need to enter the ramp while doing a drift, as soon as you exit the ramp, the car will start spinning, how many spins it does depens on the altitude it reaches.

HOW TO DO A ROLL BARELL.

Roll Barrels are actually easier than flat spins, just enter a curved ramp and make sure the car doesn’t miss it a bit, turning the wheel towards the highest point of the ramp helps doing the barrell roll.

WORLD SERIES.

The World Series is the multiplayer mode in Asphalt 8 Airborne. This is the only way to Level up, if you were still wondering how. XP points cannot be obtained in single player mode.

Once you join the room and while you wait for other players to join, you need to vote for a mode and a track.

Singeplayer races are better to farm for credits than multiplayer.

TIPS.

  • You will sure think that it will take forever to to the Tier 2 and Tier 3 upgrades for your cars if you consider the Credits you gain in Season 1 Tracks. However, the amount of credits you gain in the following seasons increase dramatically.
  • The best way to quickly increase your Nitro are Flat Spins, Roll Barrels and Nitro Boosts items. Drifting works perfectly but only on certain parts of the track.
  • Knockdowns are your best friend. Again, use and abuse knockdowns while boosting to take down your opponents, this movement is specially useful when you don’t have a great speed advantage. Taking them off the road for a couple of seconds works great.
  • The Best advice for Gate Drift Races is, keep drifting for as long as you can, it’s not speed what matters, but drifting points, keep tilting your device right and left until you reach the finish line (and pass through all the rings of course).
  • SHORTCUTS: You need to locate and then take the shortcut in every single track, alll the tracks have them and you will have to use them if you want to win in more difficult Seasons.
  • ASPHALT TRACKER: You can see what your friends are up to by accessing the Asphalt Tracker (accessible via the “Friends” icon on the main Menu). Tap on a friend’s wall to race against their ghost!.

    • When drifting, hitting the brakes again, activating nitro or hitting the wall or another vehicle takes you out of the drift. I’ve had more success in Gate Drift races using nitro between gate sets to cover more ground and reach more gates during the time limit.

    • If you drift without changing your direction for 3 seconds, you immediately stop.

  10. Hey I have a slight problem. In online racing, I keep loosing rating points. That is, even if I get second or third I still lose around five points every time.. What am I doing wrong??

    • Maybe that’s because your rank is above the other racer’s rank is lesser than yours or because your car rank is above the others .

  11. can anybody tell me how the world series works? different kinds of cars are raced against each other. which car should i buy which can give me advantage over other drivers?

    • they’ve connected their game to facebook or other medias

  22. how to get perfact run?

    • simplest term don’t hit any walls or cars (i think opponent doesn’t count I’m not 100% sure) safest way to do it is don’t hit anything at all for 20 seconds.

  23. how do I change my car view? Somehow my view changed from actually viewing the car to driver view and I hate that

    • to change car view click on the camera button top right while driving or go to options.

  24. im having trouble making money, i have gotten to season 5 and cant seem to make more than 500-1200 gold per race and thats for first place… so far ive found that the very first race in season 1 is the biggest reward for my time. this is really confusing to me cause i like the game but its getting pretty ridiculous having to run the same race over and over. im at the point where i should be running class A / S but i have no desire to run nevada course until i can afford a decent car, 90k or more… any advice? i dont understand why im getting 500 or less for season 5 races when im getting first place

    • I had that problem a while back but now its just a matter of buying the right car and playing the right races. I’ve just unlocked season 6 and only have 15k. Just try replaying all the other maps you haven’t mastered (missing stars) thats what I’m doing.

    • Find a race you come first place in and repeat it until u have loads of money

    • One way I made a lot of money was playing events. One past event I won first place 8/10 times at 3500 credits a pop! It lasted 5 days. I bought a $300,000 car. That plus I play every day.

  25. The best way of gaining money is to keep playing the multiplayer games. The more you play the more experience points you make. Every time you level up your prize increases (Level 85 gets you at least 6500 for a win).

  26. For some reason in multiplayer i always start at the front of the pack and i always get knocked out. Help!

    • I have the same problem. Even though I’m in nitro, my astin martin seems to get knocked out by minis. It doesn’t make sense. The race is over as soon as that happens, I cant catch up. Not fun.

  27. How do I rechange my emblem when I have connected to a social media? I mean now, I have my Facebook profile pic but I rather have my ingame emblem, help?

  28. How many credits do you get to beat each season. Don’t want to waste 45000 on a car if the only reward is 5 more stars.

  29. Can you tell me how do you get “DOUBLE CREDIT BONUS”
    without paying for it.
    (I just recently use double credit bonus, but I don’t recall how/when did I get it.)

  30. Game stopped working!! Same problem i have,i download the game from the google play,let it to make the upgrades,i enter in game to make game tutorial,i see game it’s work for me and i exit.After 1 h-2 i enter to make some racers,but on the first race the game exit.My phone is compatible with the game!.

  31. i love playing asphalt8 all the time, i’ll be always flying off the road and landing my car on the opponents car. it needs a perfect timing and creates an epic… Try doing that…Game Hard…

  32. I need reply asap… I changed the destination of asphalt 8 data from my phone memory to Sd card.. After that its keep showing that I have to download it again and m not in a condition to download 1.5 gb of data.. Plz tell me what can I do to play without downloading it again…

  33. My veers to the left while i am driving, why?

  34. I am at level 58 but the problem is that my rating continues to decline. I used to be on the top 15k but now i’m down to 70k. I have 23 cars but no matter what i do, whatever car i use, win or loss, still declining.

  35. ever since I logged in on my facebook, it wont let me choose my emblem. it just uses my facebook pic

  36. I just bought the class b car pack for $9.98 but U can’t use them, any thouhts how i can use the cars?? I am in season 2 driving the audi, even with nitro all the time i still get in ladt place

  37. How to turn off the name of the opponents while in multiplayer mode?

  38. How do I use a car I bought? I go to the garage, it shows I bought it. But when I go to race, it always puts me back in the Dodge Dart.

    Thanks for any help you can give!

    • check the class of the car you are trying to use. The car should be on the same class.
