A complete guide for Onrush.
ONRUSH is an arcade racing game in which players must choose a unique class to play with for a match. Each of these classes have unique abilities and skills and players must use these in order to achieve victory. This is not a racing game in which the winner is the one who comes in first position. Instead, the winner will be the one who drives most stylistically and is able to take down opponents’ vehicles. Although the game is accessible, there is a lot to learn if you want to truly master the game, and this guide is here to help you with any information you may want to know about the game.
If you’re ready, then let’s get started!
GENERAL TIPS AND TRICKS
You will need Boost in the game and the best way to earn it is by getting airtime by jumping off ramps or a slope on the road. You can also earn boost in other ways such as through near misses and by performing tricks, but the way is to just get off the ground as much as possible.
Play Through The Campaign
The game can be hard to master, as you will have to learn how each vehicle class works. The best way to get a hang of the basics is to play through the campaign and experiment as much as possible, and to then try out what you’ve learnt online.
Try And Takedown Opponents
Taking down opponents is key to winning a match, and there a number of ways to do so. You can try bumping into the side of their car with the front of your car, and this will result in a takedown. Other methods also include landing on top of the opponent’s car or making them crash against obstacles such as walls.
Use Rush Carefully
Rush is a valuable ability but you shouldn’t be hasty when going to use the ability. Timing is key and if you use Rush at the perfect time, it can mean the difference between victory and defeat.
Focus On Teamwork
This is a multiplayer game first and foremost, and the key to achieving victory will be your ability to work with a team. Always communicate with your teammates and plan ahead, and this will ensure that you will end up the winner.

HOW TO USE RUSH
RUSH is a special ability which can be earned in different ways, depending on the vehicle class that you’ve chosen. It’s a unique ability and it is different from boost as it allows you to go even faster. Once your RUSH meter fills up, you will see a prompt to activate it by pressing the respective button. Use RUSH wisely so as to turn the tides of a match and to quickly overtake your opponents or take them down.
Your RUSH meter is in the bottom part of your screen, and you will be able to see it slowly fill up over the course of a match. Try and perform those actions that fill up RUSH for the class you are playing, and then use it at the right time to achieve victory!
HOW TO CUSTOMIZE YOUR DRIVER’S AND VEHICLE’S APPEARANCE
When you’re going at breakneck speeds in the game, you will also want to make sure that you look awesome doing it. You can gain cosmetic items just by leveling up in the game. Every time you level up, you will unlock a gear crate and within these, you can find different skins, vehicle styles, and other means to customize your appearance.
You can also unlock these items by using credits which can be earned by completing challenges in the game. To personalize appearance, , just select the ‘Personalization’ option from the main menu and you will be able to customize characters’v and vehicles’ appearance as you wish.
HOW TO PERFORM THE VOMIT COMET ACTION
You need to perform this action if you want to unlock the ‘Which way is up?’ trophy. Also, it looks pretty cool. However, pulling it off correctly can be quite a challenge. We would recommend using Dynamo, Charger, or Vortex for this. Just go to Glory Dam map, and then use your nitrous right at the start and boost into one of the pipe ramps. If you get the angle right, it will send your vehicle spinning in the air. While airborne, turn off the nitrous and if you get four or five rotations, then you will earn the trophy.
