I'm wondering if Tier 3 is even possible without the Afterburner. Twice now I've used every shortcut I know about, including jumping onto the overpass, and each time I'm falling short just 3 or so seconds of the finish line.
Do you want me to send you an invite? Or want me to join your game?
Still lookin' for someone that's lvl 41 or under and that'll dupe or trade an Afterburner, so I can farm Torgue tokens.
The stretch Mega showed me certainly works, but without Afterburner, at least for me, you have to be dang near perfect. *Laughs* I keep bumping something near the end as I try to thread thru the broken vehicles/barrels at the 2nd to last checkpoint.
FINALLY! I'm not gobsmacked anymore, though I'm still incredibly impressed at doing it with 3 seconds left.
It's allll about hitting that last jump straight. If ya hit it at even a small angle there's a good chance that the vehicle will hit the ground and bounce you sideways you off course right into a pillar. I would have got it with closer to a full second left rather than 0, but I clipped the fender of the broken car just before the 2nd to last checkpoint, causing me to get some air, and go sideways a bit, wasting some time.
Anyho, still would like to get my grubby little mits on an Afterburner eventually, but at least I know how to do this, sometimes, if I can drive near perfectly *Laughs*
Anyhow, I'll shut-up now. If I get an Afterburner relic I'll close this topic.
