Achievers Anonymous: Burnout Crash

Welcome back everybody, it has been quite a long time since we’ve had an Achievers Anonymous meeting, so let’s go ahead and see what game is on tap for today shall we? In this installment, we are going to take a look at how to get two different achievements for Burnout Crash for the Xbox Live Arcade, made by EA and Criterion Games. I am going to show you how to obtain the Maximum Withdrawal, and Did you Let One Go? Achievements, here we go.

Achievement: Maximum Withdrawal

Description: Collect $9,000,000 from a single Bank Truck

Gamerscore Points Earned for unlocking:  10

This is one pretty easy to get, especially if you take a few precautions beforehand. First of all, make sure you pick the Rush Hour event on any map, and choose a car that has a high level of aftertouch (I’ll explain why later). The reason why I say this is because these levels include the Pizza Roulette wheel, which is a random powerup generator that will alarm the player as to when something new is occurring onscreen. Blow the car up when it appears, play the game, and once you see the Bank Truck Option selected, that’s you queue to get ready to earn some cash.

Once you have destroyed the truck, three sets of moneybags will appear on different areas of map. Collect each one of these, before they revert back down to their lowest form, in order to get the points. Having a car with a high amount of aftertouch will be able to make moving across a large area, in a shorter amount of time, a much easier task to accomplish. Use the crashbreaker powerup to move the vehicle, and if you timed it right, the car will move just fast enough for you to be able to collect all of the bags, and there you go, achievement unlocked.

Achievement: Did you Let One Go?

Description: Let a Gas Tanker escape without exploding

Gamerscore Points Earned for unlocking:  10

Those thinking of a clever fart joke to use would be more than welcome to insert it here, but in this case, we are referring to a tank truck full of gasoline. Essentially, all of the same rules apply as before, except for one minor detail, which is don’t blow anything up. Pick a Rush Hour Event, blow up the Pizza Roultette truck when it appears, wait until the Gas Tanker option (not sure if its called that exactly, but you’ll know it when you see it) shows up, let the car drive through the map completely unharmed, and another 10 gamerscore points will be awarded for your efforts.

Well I hope that I helped you earn some easy achievement points, and if there are any other one (or ones) that you are stuck with, let me know by leaving a comment below this post, have fun everybody!

P.S.- Sorry about the random pictures everybody, just couldn’t find any from the game in regards to these achievements.
