There are three special items in Hangar 18, Egypt,
and Japan, they are:

Eve: a little pyramid in Egypt found on top of the
pyramid thats there.
Use it like a remote bomb.

Radar: a sattaliete found in Japan and you find it
when you go up around
a few ramps. Its used whenever there is someone
thats near the big radar
dish, you can zap someone to death.

UFO: It's found in Hangar 18 inside the glass of
the large UFO, first you
have to get to the upper level and take the left
ramp into the teleport. 
You'll be on the UFO, all you have to do is shoot
the glass.
It's used like the lightning bolt.

How to beat Primeval:
If you a Thumper fan this is for you. When you are
going to kill him,
try staying at the side of the ramp on the lower
part of the blimp.
You can go on either side, facing the room with the
hole in the ground,
leading to open air. Save about three specials for
Thumper. You should
try to get Primeval on the upper level. Try to
point the front of the
car to the center of the ramp, it helps.  He'll
come down the ramp,
then, freeze him. Take your time, then try to push
him off the blimp
into the hole with Thumper's specials. Note: He
gets used to this, so
try to kill him before he changes his  attack. He
should die, it took me
a while to find this out.

Dear Playstation,

I have a code for twisted metal 3. On the last
level,(the blimp),
I have an easier way of beatingprime evil. First,
you have to be
auger. Second you have to beat everyone. When you
are waiting for
him to come to the blimp, go down to the lower part
of the blimp,
right next to the pit and wait. When he comes down
there, run into
him and put on your special move. Aim him at the
pit and when you
are done, you will throw him into the pit and you
have beat the game.


How to get the UFO/Spaceship weapon:
I have looked through all the codes and I found a
way to get the
spaceship weapon.  BUT!!  There is another way, 
you may do this
with any character.
When you are on the low ground you can see that you
can go into
the spaceship but there is a red shield blocking
You disable the shield you must shoot your
machineguns at all 4
corners of the level on the ground level.  The
things you shoot
at look like health meters ( /\/\ ) and they keep
repeating like that.
Machinegun all of them until they blow up.  Then
you can go into
the spaceship.  Once you are in the space ship go
in the portal. 
Now you are really high...
You can see you have a choice of four ways to go. 
Turn your
car around until you see another portal, then go
inside that
portal.  Your on the spaceship!  But don't fall
With your machine guns shoot the spaceship glass
until it blows up. 
UFO/Spaceship weapon!!
STILL!!! Don't go off..  You should fire it
somewhere high
including what you are on now so you don't get
It kill all the enemies in one shot if they are on
the ground!!
Submitted By: Carvey

  There is a space ship that will destroy all
enemies on the larger ship in the middle of the
the way to get to is ...destroy all regeneraters
that should destroy the red sheild beside the
ship. go into the portal and you have four ways to
go.turn around untill you see the portal.take the
road that leads to the portal ,when get there go
into the portal and you will be on top of the ship
in the middle of the room.dont fall off but blow
up the dome on the ship and inside will be the
spaceship that destroys all enemies with one or
two sure when you use this you are in
one of the red dip in room where the regeneraters
were.good luck!!
your playstation pal,
                Alan Boger

To get the Eve in Egypt, go to the big pyramid and
machine gun the post.
Then you can go inside the pyramid, machine gun the
tomb and get the portal, now you have the Eve.
Also, to get to the lightning place, you can go
in the pyramid and blow up the candle, now you have
a passageway.

On the blimp where the THIS SECTION CLOSED sign is
blow it up by your machine guns. When you do this
can go to the middle of the blimp and at the middle
can find a Lightning and a portal.I haven't tried
the portal
 yet so I don't know where it takes you, that
you'll have
to find out yourself.
Also, when you destory the signs it's easier to
the switch in the red place.

To blow up Big Ben, stop at an angle on the ramp in
front of it and
shoot the hell out of it for
a bit. It will eventually collapse like the TM2
Eiffel Tower.
There is a hidden tunnel in London. A short
distance from the clearing,
next to the largest
structure with the warp inside is a wall that reads
'KEEP OUT'. Blast it
away and you will find
a secret tunnel with a few weapons inside. This
passageway comes in
handy when going up
against MINION (boss#2) at the end of the round.
Unlike TM2 (Amazonia
round 2), you still
have to fight MINION even if you're playing as him.

Area 51:
On the first floor, go to the blue glass walls that
say 002 in between
them. On the blue
wall on the left, aim a missile at the 2nd from the
bottom right blue
glass tile and fire.
It will open to reveal a new transporter which
takes you inside the ship
for a few
weapons pick-ups plus six aliens in the wall, which
you apparently can't
do anything
To get to the transporter in the ufo, shoot all 4
of the lights around
the perimeter. The
red grid around the transporter will be gone and
you can go to the other
two levels of
the ufo. Aim your car just right and shoot the ufo
that flys overhead.
This will break
the glass and kill the other players. You can also
take the other
transporter on the third
floor to the second floor and get the ufo weapon
which wreaks major
damage to

Fire at the Sphinx face in the Egypt level for a
special surprise. Go to
the pyramid with
the EVE weapon on top, as soon as you enter (by
blowing up the
Sacrophigus), look
toward the car's right and you'll see a FIREPLACE.
Burn it and it takes
you straight to
the other pyramid.

Calypso's Blimp:
After falling to the bottom level of the blimp,
destroy the boxes that
are stacked on the
ground. Hidden weapons and health icons are hidden
inside. In order to
destroy the
enemies during a Tournament, you must destroy all 4
flashing switches
and then the
main one (which is in the red room at the top). If
you don't do this,
the enemies will
keep respawning.
The easiest way to finish off Prime Evil is to wait
for him by the
portal near the
opening on the first floor (the opening where you
die if you go into).
When he shows
up from the left, freeze him, then place a plastic
explosive to the left
of him and
detonate it. This will send him out of the opening
killing him for good.
Now you're on
your way to victory!

Drive your car up to the big fan in the Tokyo level
and teeter on the
edge. Then, wait
for the other characters to chase after you and let
them fall into the
fan and die.
Quickly throw your car in reverse and wreak further
destruction. Note:
In two player
death match, you may have to blow up the fan grid
first with a well
placed missile.

Go up to the top of the ramp that's closest to the
HOLLYWOOD sign and
launch a
couple of Napalms at it. The sign will blow up.

North Pole:
Blow up Santa's workshop and everything else in the
center of the level
to find a full
health recharge and several weapons (including
lightning). Lure a few
enemies out
there and then get back across the bridge quickly.
Use your lightning to
fry anybody
left on the island. Be careful not to fall into the
chasm surrounding
the island since the
lightning could hit you!

I've found a way to pretty much be invisible in two
levels.  In Tokyo
you can jump on the little ledgesthat are on the
side of the roads
that go from one rooftop to the other.  The other
place is at the North
Pole.  There is a little cottage that sets by some
trees, if you jump
 on the cottage and manage to stay on in ether
place your opponants
wont even know your there.  But the missles will,
so watch out.

Before you fall in aim yourself towards the radar
and fall in the lava.
Place a remote under you and jump then detonate it.
If done right you
