Asphalt 8: Airborne: Top 10 Tips and Cheats You Need to Know

Asphalt 8 iOS

Mobile game players know that there’s one racing game that’s top quality – Asphalt 8: Airborne. All of the luxury rides you see being driven in real life can be taken for a ride in this title. The biggest difference between real life driving and mobile driving is the fact that you can perform amazing tricks with these expensive vehicles.

We know the stages and multiplayer aspects of this mobile racer can get a tad bit overwhelming at times, so we’re going to offer you some advice on how to conquer the road.

Here are the top 10 tips/tricks/cheats that you’ll need to race flawlessly in Asphalt 8: Airborne.


1. Try to Earn Every Star on Every Stage

The unlockable stars that are seen on every stage are used when it comes to copping new races and seasons. Stars are also good when it comes to purchasing in-game items. Every time you earn a new star, this helps unlock a one-time money bonus that can be obtained at the end of every race. Try and aim for that one-time bonus for more money by completing every race.


2. If You’re Going to Buy Anything, Buy Those Car Packs

You might not want to spend some real world currency on this game but if you do, go ahead and purchase those car packs. Car Packs include vehicles that pertain to every car class. Try and buy any of these car packs from the onset of your time with the game. It’s better to buy a car pack with car classes you don’t have than to purchase car packs late in the game with cars you already have.


3. Explore Every Map to the Fullest

TouchArcade.com offered players some tips on the best thing to do every stage:

This is probably one of the most important tips for playing Asphalt 8. Each map has LOADS of alternate routes, shortcuts and hidden passages. Some of them are shorter, longer, and the navigation difficulty varies. In order to ensure victory, you must master these routes and find the one that best fits your driving style while still ensuring you get an edge on the competition. The best way to do that is to simply play each one again and again while taking mental notes of where paths split and where the computer likes to go.


4. Become Masterful at Drifting

TouchArcade.com also listed a few details regarding drifting:

One of the best ways to earn a steady supply of nitro is to drift during curves. Drifting is as easy as tapping the break button, which starts the drift (a quick tap will end drift mode). While drifting, you can not only preserve speed during a curve, but you also earn nitro, which, as we mention above, is quite important.


5. Keep You Car Safe by Memorizing the Tracks

If you’re looking to keep your rides intact, it’s best to memorize the track layouts for those more hazardous situations. Keep your eyes on the stages and you’ll come to recognize all the tracks and turns that could damage your ride.

6. What Two Upgrades Should You Purchase First?

The upgrades you’ll need to buy first are the Handling and Top Speed features. The Handling upgrade makes it a lot easier to control your vehicle, which should also make it easier for you to weave into 1st place. The Top Speed upgrade helps push your car’s top speed to new levels. Then go ahead and go for the nitro and acceleration upgrades.


7. Save That Nitro for the Last Parts of Every Track

It definitely sucks when you’re in the lead near the end of track when all of a sudden, you get passed by dozens of cars. The best way to combat this is by pushing your nitro to the limit. That way, you’ll keep that leader position.


8. Keep A Look on Your Opponent’s Score

Modojo.com posted up some tips that you should clue you into how dangerous a racer is:

The higher a score an opponent has, the more likely they are to be aggressive during a race. This means ramming into you to gain the lead, and in some situations, wrecking your vehicle. Gameloft balanced the takedown feature in this mode, so you aren’t automatically destroyed when touched by a boosting vehicle. However, you can still wreck by going into the wall or traveling too far off the track. Play aggressive, and don’t be afraid to get a little dirty.


9. Go Airborne As Much As You Can

TouchTapPlay.com noted that pulling off airborne tricks helps more than you think:

This game doesn’t have “Airborne” in its title for no reason! Therefore, make sure that you do the barrel rolls and get all the air time that you can. As a tip to increase that, use the nitro right before getting on a platform for that extra speed boost.


10. Try to Pick Up Those In-Game Bonuses

Asphalt 8 Airborne Cheats

You get small bonuses for performing a few tasks during a race. Make sure you check out the list below so you know what to do on the track so you pick up these bonuses:

– Take out other cars
– Narrowly avoid colliding with other cars
– Knock out road blocks and cones

These bonuses go towards more in-game currency, so make sure you perform these tasks as much as possible.

    • I’ve just started playing Asphalt 8 Airborne,I sometimes use cheats and hacks just to get through it faster and level up though. In case you guys are interested in getting your hands on some cheats, I personally use castlecheats.com/asphalt8airborne right now and would totally recommend checking it out.

  1. No disrespect to the author, who is obviously looking to be sincerely helpful, if you’re gonna spend any real money to “buy anything,” DON’T buy those car packs! Spend a little dough ($8) on an eleven hundred in-game currency (blue) credits. With them, you can buy all the way up to ELEVEN FULL DAYS with your Double Credits meter on, and if you can hit a good, fast track that pays well (Season 9 Spada Contradonca, SD Harbor Reverse can easily take about a minute and has a $10k+ reward, when doubled), then spend a couplle/few hours “farming”–and don’t forget to grab all your stars then, too, while you’re doubling your bonus)–and you’ll come out far ahead of buying the car packs. Spending money on (anything that can be bought with) regular, in-game Cash is a total waste of good money (the internationally recognized currency kind, like dollars, pounds, rupees, and etc.) is a waste, considering how quickly you bag cash, with Double Credits meter rolling. I can easily earn almost half a mil, in an hour, with that Spada race, and there are some other tracks/cars that can make similar amounts, such as the Veneno in Barcelona, which is a really short race.

    I’m actually farming, today, for the Rinspeed, which I wish I’d had time to do, when that cup was just played, and so maybe that Holden car (which will be the fastest in its class), is something for which I can save and then get the zaZen, later. I’m sure there will be a cup for Holden owners coming up… Oh, yeah, and having those extra credits is really nice for “topping off” your efforts, for a R&D car, like the current Alfa Romeo and that last ED Torq (which is fun as hell, to drive…). Hope this helps, and again, no disrespect. Buying Car Packs might seem like a good idea, but relatively, it isn’t. Hope this helps. Cheers!

    • Oh, yeah. Forgot to mention that 1,100 credits are $8, on sale, when they go for 30% off, as the did, last weekend. That was my second time buying a round…

    • Is there other cars that go 5k+ on each max race? I farm with my Sesto Elemento for 4.6/7k+ each game on a 1:09 race in French Guianna which is also my favorite map because of all the boosts. Is there a car that gives off that much credit without having to buy token cars.

      • @LamboSestoElemento —

        Generally, the farther you scroll down in the Season 9 list, the higher the payout will be.

        Currently, the the highest-payout car I can race in S9 is the Volkswagen Beetle Turbo. It usually takes me about 1:34-1:38 on the Test Site: Omega track, earning me about 5.5K per race. Honestly, though, I find that combination of car/track boring, and almost always elect instead to race my BMW M1 (SD Harbor Reverse; 1:06-1:10; 5.3K). I can play that one for hours without getting bored.:-)

        The Geely GC9 and Camaro Z/28 should also be very good values in terms of cost to purchase/max vs. S9 payouts (also taking into account that they have fast S9 tracks and are fun to drive), but I haven’t maxed either of them out yet, so I can’t say for sure.

        You might be tempted by some of the other (relatively) low cost cars that pay out even bigger in S9, like the Mazda 6 (270K) and Honda Integra Type R (450K), but beware: these cars will cost at least 1.5M-2.0M credits to fully max out—not a good strategy for players looking to maximize the reward on their time investment. The four I mentioned above all cost less than 1M to max out, and are therefore probably where you should focus your efforts, IMHO.

  2. i find jumps slow you down especially in MP(multiplayer) and especially barrel rolls, barrel rolls waste plenty of time if you go off the farthest tip from the ground and i have passed many of players doing this even if they have extra boost i’ve already closed the gap or passed them. flat spins are the best choice just make sure you start drifting on the tip of the jump to avoid a loss in speed
