    Default Did you know... Random facts about WipEout HD Fury here!

    This is for random glitches and facts that you know about Wipeout HD!

    I'll start us off:

    Did you know that the Missile weapon has a blast radius like the Bomb?

    I'm assuming you're referring to the slowdown of the blast, I don't think it actually causes damage, but I agree anyway.

    I think it causes 2 damage to your craft (Tested with Goteki on accident)? I don't know since I can't perform a good test with only 2 players.

    Yeah, it's hard to test, but I may try it in a few days.

    The easy way to test what damage each weapon does is to play split screen two player mode.
    The results will vary with craft.
    Just use two controllers and place one craft a way in front of another, then blast one with a missile or rocket or plasma bolt to see what damage it does to the craft, you will see the result instantly as both crafts shield info appears on screen at the same time.
    It also depends just how far away you are when you hit the craft ahead, closer obviously = more damage

    Same for bombs & Mines, run ahead drop some a bomb /mines, then follow with the second craft running into them to see the effect.

    IMHO, far more damage can be done in really fierce online racing by craft ramming each other, it depletes your shields at a constant rate if having a real heated battle trying to get ahead of somebody equally as determined to take the lead as you are.

    Somebody skillful at piloting Auricom or Triakis can decimate you in a quarter lap just by side ramming.

    Been there, done that.

    Did you know that Quakes disrupt the path of Rockets, making them likely to miss their target?

    Did you know that there are billboards for Tigron and Van-Über? You can find the Tigron billboard at Metropia, after Gemini's Pin. The Van-Über billboards can be seen at Vineta K, hanging at a balcony of an apartment and Sebenco Climb, one on a large dam and the other at a tower on a long slope.

    These billboards suggest that Tigron and Van-Über were meant to be included in HD, but were removed during development.

    I've seen them, but nice fact!

    Did you know that there is a hot tub at Chenghou Project? It's after the Hello - Lucki Bank Hairpin Exit, and it is right at the start of the first jump of the broken jumps that follow.

    Also, did you know that there is a freeway at Talon's Junction? It's at the Talon's Junction hairpin, about a third of the way into the corner.

    This also provokes the question: Do cars still exist in the years of 2206 to 2207? Or are they just AG vehicles, or is there no freeway at all and I'm just seeing things?

    I've seen the Tigron billboard and the Sebenco Van-Uber ones, but could someone please tell me where exactly in Vineta K to find the VU one there?

    As for the freeway, I have noticed it as well, those are AG vehicles traveling on it, and I'm assuming that for the transportation of AG vehicles there would be routes in the air that aren't tangible but basically serve as the roadways to keep some sort of order in public transportation.

    Also, how do you know that the pools at the Project are hot tubs?

    In the mean time, did you know that originally, WipEout HD was supposed to be a release title for the PS3, with only the forward tracks included, but when the game failed epilepsy testing, the dev team had time to make the reverse tracks, and it narrowly missed the PS3 launch. The Zone mode was also toned down from its original version to pass these epilepsy tests.
