    0.) About Me and Introduction
    ----------------------------------------
    Hey. JagDogger2525 here. This is my first FAQ. I have been gaming for years now
    and I own a few systems with a few games (hence my Contributor Data), and I want
    to share this FAQ for the game Twisted Metal: Head-On. So enough about me let's
    get to it. This FAQ is for all those who are stuck on this game.
    
    To find something you are stuck on, you can just press Ctrl and F simultaneously
    to bring up the "Find" box. There you can type the Section.
    
    Twisted Metal: Head-On is the PSP version of the famous Playstation car combat
    game Twisted Metal (TM for short). This time, you can save your games and, once
    in a while, choose which place you want to go next.
    
    To win in Twisted Metal: Head-On is like the other Twisted Metal games:
    Defeat all the enemy vehicles in the current battleground/stage/arena/level to
    move on to the next battleground/stage/arena/level and eventually defeating the
    Boss at the last stage of the game.

    4.) Difficulty Levels
    ----------------------------------------
    Super Easy - This difficulty is for those who just got the game and are not
    familiar with this game or any game in the Twisted Metal series.
    ----------
    Easy - This difficulty is for those who know Twisted Metal and played around
    one (1) to two (2) (maybe more) versus games of the game for the console.
    ----------
    Medium - This difficulty is for those who own a few or all of the Twisted Metal
    games for the consoles (excluding the PC version of TM2 and TMBO for PS2) and
    have played them more than ten (10) times but less than fifty (50).
    ----------
    Hard - This difficulty is for those who do the following:
    a. Own all the Twisted Metal games (in/excluding* the PC version of TM2 and TMBO
    for PS2)
    b. Own all of the Strategy Guides (if available)
    c. Play between one and all of them at least once a day
    
    * I put in/excluding because the PC version and TMBO are both hard to get unless
    bought on a site where you buy stuff.
    
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    5.) Modes
    ----------------------------------------
    a. Single Player
    --------------------
    Story - This mode is where you fight your enemies on each level. Each level has
    one (1), and ONLY one (1), mini-game (See Mini-Games Section for more details).
    By completing this mode once, you automatically unlock every level that was
    COMPLETED, not up to. Example: If you die in Paris, the only levels that are
    unlocked are Big Blue Stadium and Los Angeles. All levels unlocked can be played
    either in Challenge or Endurance in Single Player or Online in Multiplayer.
    ----------
    Challenge - In this mode, you select your vehicle, your enemies, and the level.
    You have to defeat all the enemies that were chosen without dying.
    ----------
    Endurance - In this mode, you select your vehicle, and the level. You have to
    defeat as many enemies as you can without dying.
    
    --------------------
    b. Multiplayer
    --------------------
    Ad Hoc - This is where you can connect with other players IN THE SAME ROOM. I
    put that in caps because it is the most important part of this multiplayer mode.
    ----------
    Infrastructure - You can play online in this mode but a wireless router is
    needed. You play with others in your country. You may need to make a name and
    password in the process.
    ----------
    Infrastructure LAN - You can play online in this mode but a wireless router is
    needed. You play with others IN YOUR LOCAL AREA NETWORK (a.k.a. LAN). I put that
    in caps because it is the most important part of this online mode.

    Age: 35 - Height: 5'11"
    Weight: 255
    
    Marcus Kane is a man plagued with nightmare of competing in past Twisted Metal
    competition. Each dream is very real, but he believes it’s a fake. He doesn’t
    know it, but he’s got a split personality. His other identity is Needles Kane
    (the driver of Sweet Tooth). Lately these nightmares (which are actually
    memories that Calypso has tried to hide from Marcus) have gotten worse and
    worse. Eventually he wakes up one day and there’s a Twisted Metal vehicle
    waiting outside for him. Ready to put these nightmares to rest once and for all,
    he decides to compete in what he believes to be another nightmare; he doesn’t
    realize this Twisted Metal is for real.

    Mortimer, a former caretaker of wayward souls, has long since gone back to rest
    in his coffin. One night, some kids are goofing around near Mortimer's grave.
    One of them reads the "Gone but not forgotten" inscription on the tombstone and
    drunkenly decides to see if that's true. They dig up the grave and wake up
    Mortimer. This upsets Mortimer as he finds he can't go back to sleep. Exhausted
    and desperate to go back to his eternal slumber, Mortimer enters Twisted Metal
    hoping Calypso can put him back to sleep.

    Driver: Mr. Grimm
    Age: 26 - Height: 5'10"
    Weight: 180
    (All stats are from when he was human)
    
    Mr. Grimm is, in fact, the grim reaper himself. At some point during his
    centuries of work, he attempted to devour a soul himself instead taking it to
    its next destination. He became hooked; needing to devour more and more souls.
    He found himself absorbing more souls than he was delivering. This craving was
    driving Mr. Grimm to the point of insanity. He realizes he can't take it anymore
    and enters Twisted Metal hoping that Calypso can give someone else the job of
    being the Grim Reaper.

    Car: Sweet Tooth (Vehicle)
    Driver: Needles Kane
    Age: Unknown
    Height: 5'9" - Weight: 185
    
    Needles is, by far, the most aggressive competitor Twisted Metal has ever known.
    He's competed in every Twisted Metal and has become known as the insane clown.
    He has become tired of this position as a simple competitor and with his wish
    hopes to take over Twisted Metal altogether.

    Car: Thumper (Vehicle)

    Weight: 120
    
    For years, Angel has wanted to compete with the big-boys and their lowriding,
    customized, bass pumping vehicles. Growing up she has watched her brothers and
    cousins build, modify and create incredible vehicles, while basking in all of
    the attention and notoriety that comes along with them. She has had to stand by
    the sidelines simply watching the car show competitions instead of competing
    herself. Twisted Metal was just the opportunity she was looking for. If she
    wins she will finally have the car that puts them all to shame.

    A popular radio station, receives a confusing giveaway prize from an anonymous
    source. The prize? A "special" vehicle to compete in a contest called Twisted
    Metal, and all you have to do to win is be the 7th caller. Of course the DJ's
    have no clue what they're giving away and the 7th caller, Chuckie Floop, is just
    happy to win something. Chuckie doesn't realize what he is in for and discovers
    from the mysterious contest creator that the winner will be granted any wish
    they desire. Not sure how this contest works or how anyone can grant wishes,
    Chuckie's mind focuses on the important "what will I wish for?".

    but hasn't had any luck finding her. She eventually follows Amanda's trail to
    Calypso who offers her a seat in the upcoming Twisted Metal. Miranda is no
    stranger to racing as she and Amanda used to be the top two female Indy car
    racers in the world. She agrees and knows exactly what she'll wish for; her
    sister returned alive and well.

    Calypso gets the idea to rescue his daughter from the afterlife. Upon attempting

    The army has sent him to compete in Twisted Metal with the hope that he’ll win
    and acquire an ultimate weapon. When he wins, Colonel Hall wishes for an
    ultimate weapon; something that will enable him to easily take out all the

    Age: 38 - Height: 6'3"
    Weight: 280 (60 pounds come from his metal arms)
    
    More than a decade ago, Axel was imprisoned in a massive, two-wheeled
    contraption by his father. At the end of Twisted Metal 2, he confronted his
    father about this and he was told he'd have to spend another decade imprisoned.
    In a show of defiance, he tore his arms free from the contraption and
    disappeared. Even though he was now free, he found he couldn't handle living
    without the thing he'd been part of for so long. He felt like he'd lost a part
    of his body. Axel met a doctor who constructed cybernetic arms and feet that
    would allow him to drive the vehicle once again, on the condition that Axel
    would turn over his wish should he win Twisted Metal.

    Car: Mr. Slam (Vehicle)
    Driver: Simon Whittlebone
    Age: 33 - Height: 5'9"
    Weight: 200
    (When he was alive)
    
    Simon Whittlebone was the mastermind behind Whittlebone Tower; a skyscraper that
    was to stretch taller than any building that had come before it. While the
    building was under construction, Simon climbed to the top of the tower and
    shouted to the universe that this creation made him a god. He lost his balance
    and fell to the ground. With the mastermind dead, the tower was never finished.
    Companies tried to tear the remains down, but strange and ghostly things always
    kept people at bay; Simon's spirit has been haunting the tower. His spirit
    possesses one of the construction vehicles and he enters Twisted Metal with the
    hopes of being reborn so he can finish his tower.

    Car: Crimson Fury (Vehicle)
    Driver: Agent Shepherd
    Age: 34 - Height: 6'1"
    Weight: 100
    
    Agent Shepherd is a good and dedicated FBI agent who's entered Twisted Metal
    with the goal of bringing the FBI's most wanted, Calypso, to justice. He's a
    simple and straightforward man. If he wins Twisted Metal and with the help of
    the FBI, Shepherd hopes to capture Calypso.

    Driver: Catfish
    Age:47  - Height: 6'1"
    Weight: 175
    
    Catfish, a man who prides himself as the mighty hunter, decided to modify his
    favorite rig to compete in this year's Twisted Metal, because after all, it's
    just another form of hunting, vehicular style. Catfish's illustrious and often
    illegal hunting obsession has resulted in the head of every type of big game
    creature to hang proudly in his favorite trophy room. Now, Catfish's ultimate
    dream is to hunt the most intelligent species in the animal kingdom, the Human,
    in an all-out, man vs. man survival of the fittest in the raw wilderness.

    Car: Cousin Eddy (Vehicle)
    Driver: Cousin Eddy
    Age: 29 - Height: 6'0"
    Weight: 300
    
    Cousin Eddy was born in a backwater Ozarks pigsty called Sour Creek. You won't
    find it on any map. A textbook case of what can go wrong when cousins marry
    cousins, Eddy was the strongest man in town by the time he was ten, though his
    malformed, inbred brain had stopped developing at age three. Eddy only had two
    loves: "smashin' things" and collecting "shiny things". By age thirteen he owned
    all of the shiny things in Sour Creek. After he'd finish his smashing the place
    was kind of lonely, so he wandered off in search of more shiny things and more
    things to smash. When he stumbled across the Twisted Metal competition he
    thought he'd found paradise. Eddy had gathered a band of drifters - "cousins" he
    called them - who he coerced by brute strength into helping him transform a
    trash RV into a nightmare killing machine. Now he could blast his way into
    Twisted Metal. So much to smash. So many shiny things...

    Car: ATV (Vehicle)
    Driver: Gene Ruttish
    Age: 22 - Height: 5'9"
    Weight: 185
    
    Gene Ruttish had always fancied himself a ladies' man... unfortunately noone
    ever told the ladies. All his life he'd tried one crazy ATV stunt after another
    in the vain attempt to gain their favor. For years he's been living by the
    credo, "Bones heal. Chicks dig scars. Glory lasts forever." Years of trying
    crazy stunts have made him quite the skilled driver and willing risk-taker.
    Joining Cousin Eddy's caravan has given him a place to show off his skills and
    Twisted Metal is his latest attempt to "wow" the women. Gene knows exactly what
    he wants from Twisted Metal. When he wins, he will ask Calypso to make him the
    most desired man on the planet.

    Terrible things can happen when a man comes to grips with his dark side. Marcus
    has spent his life running from his nightmares. Needles has devoted his life to
    making his nightmares come true. When Marcus surrenders to Needles the whole is
    greater than the sum of the parts. Marcus' rational mind and Needles' fevered
    insanity descend into a vortex of sinister chaos. The only possible outcome is
    the total annihilation of anything that stands in their path.
