Players can also work to accumulate ‘Mayhem Points’ to unlock new levels, earned each time they smash into an opponent’s vehicle resulting in a loss of parts or even explosions. White ‘Mayhem Points’ indicate damage inflicted while red ‘Mayhem Points’ note damage sustained. Drivers can further enhance scores by earning boost from collecting parts knocked off other vehicles. When the boost meter is entirely filled, players receive ‘Ramming Speed’ rendering them nearly unstoppable. As an added bonus, minigame challenges, such as Pit Pusher, Duck Shoot, Rear Wrecker, and Part Collector, are also encountered throughout Mayhem to test players’ automotive fortitude.
