Wrench’s Fact: Weapons 101

While you are browsing through your inventory and the armory to search for the perfect killing device to help you destroy zombies and dust your enemies, have you ever wondered what all the specialized weapons actually mean? Here’s a short guide to help you choose the most powerful weapon that is suitable for your needs and expertise.

EMD Weapon Closeup

There are two types of ammos you can purchase: missile and energy. The higher the tier of the weapon, the more damage it can make on the zombies and your opponents. Be sure to let your guns cool down so it doesn’t overheat or overload.

Missile-based Weaponry

These are your heavy duty guns that fire sharp missiles or powerful cannons. These are great choices if you are dealing with opponents of a lower level and weaker zombies. Ammos are much more affordable but the damage is still severe.

Energy-based Weaponry

Highly specialized weapons that run on energy ammos and can instantly turn zombies into dust! This extremely deadly category includes 3 types of energy – flames, lightning, and ice. Harnessing power from natural sources, this weapon can vaporize your enemies and even toughest zombies almost instantly!

Wrench’s Fact: Driver’s Clothing

Once you have geared up your vehicle and equipped it with the deadliest weapon, what more can you do to protect yourself from the zombies’ destructive attacks? One thing that is often overlooked by professional drivers is their clothing. Let us take a look at Wrench’s suggestions!

EMD Drivers

When you choose your driver in Eat My Dust, be sure to pick one that not only has outstanding specs and driving skills, but also have enough external protection to avoid nasty accidents, such as road rashes or burns. A helmet paired with fire proof gloves is your best shot.

Drivers like Rocky and Ninjax are great choices because they have natural properties and highly trained skills that can help you maneuver through obstacles and challenges, even without the physical protection of specialized clothing. However, Wrench highly recommends the Stag, because it not only has exceptional racetrack skills but also an extensive protective gear that improves your agility and lowers your chances of accidents on the road.

Wrench’s Fact: Solving the Ancient Egyptian Mystery

The devouring sand storm is coming and you are caught up in an intense competition against your opponents in Eat My Dust. What can you do to maneuver through the dangerous obstacles and dodge the cunning attacks from your opponents? Wrench has a few pointers to help you reveal the secrets of this hidden racetrack of Land of Ra in Ancient Egypt and race to the top of the leaderboard!

Land of Ra Track

While you race through the abandoned village in this bare land of sand, be sure to take the detours to shorten your time, and maintain your lane position to avoid crashing into walls and obstacles. Also, be mindful of the slipping sand as you drift through the mystic desert and monumental landmarks. Going off track resets your game, and you will need to work extra hard to gain that lost time back to win the race. Don’t forget to use your boost on straight roads by pressing “SHIFT” on your keyboard to give you a little push to take over your opponents. Lastly, fire all your weapons to anyone that’s standing between you and ultimate glory!

Are you ready to take on all the unexpected obstacles and deadly creatures that roamed this racetrack?

The birth of the first car ever made in modern automobile history was in 1886. This car contains a petrol engine, which is an internal combustion engine with spark-ignition. It was also the original three-wheeled vehicle, which is a light framed tricycle. The internal-combustion engine has contributed to the technological advancement of cars today. This engine consists of a group of reactants that when collided, will produce working fluids for the engine. The products will release energy and heat, which gives the car power to move.
