Bonuses are awarded to the player for fulfilling certain criteria while racing. Computer-controlled opponents cannot get these achievements. A message appears on the screen when the bonus is earned, and the player is rewarded with extra credits.

Time Bonus, on the other hand, is a powerup, obtained by collecting the corresponding pickups, scattered throughout the area.

Pedestrian bonuses[]

All games[]

An animation of a pedestrian getting hit from the side, granting an extra style bonus.

  • _x combo bonus!: Hit more than one pedestrian with the car or a power-up in quick succession. In Carmageddon, this bonus only reaches up to 5, and on the other games, to 10.
  • Bonus for artistic impression: Hit a pedestrian creatively, for example landing on one after a jump.
  • Extra style bonus!: Kill a pedestrian using the side or rear of the car.
  • Piledriver bonus!: Crush a pedestrian between the car and a solid object (such as a wall or lamppost).
  • Splatter bonus!: Hit a pedestrian in a way that it splits severely. This can be achieved by smacking it with good speed.
  • "Nice shot, sir": Hit a pedestrian with a movable object that is not the player's car (such as a traffic light).

Carmageddon II[]

  • Stitch that!: Hit a pedestrian with the ball of the Mutant Tail Thing.
  • Award for outstanding achievement: Hit a pedestrian with the mutant tail thing, when detached from the car. This can be achieved by spinning at high speed and cutting the tail so it hits a pedestrian.
  • Cat 'n' mouse bonus: Make a pedestrian lose a limb without killing it in one of the player's impacts.
  • Barbeque bonus: A pedestrian was burnt to death. Can also be achieved if one kills a pedestrian that is burning but not yet dead.

Carmageddon Reincarnation[]

  • Hot Girl on Girl Action!: Launch a female ped into another female ped.
  • Jam Sandwich!: Crush a ped between your car and an opponent's or cop's. (unconfirmed)
  • Shut up!: Killing a ped while it is screaming. (uncomfirmed)

Driving bonuses[]

All games[]

  • Head-On bonus!: Collide with an opponent head-on.
  • Cunning stunt bonus!: Land on the car's wheels after spinning through the air. Sometimes, this bonus is earned while still in mid-air.

Carmageddon Reincarnation[]

  • Got 'em up the arse!: Collide with the rear of an opponent while they're stopped or moving forward.
  • Ballet Bonus!: Do at least a 360 degree spin on the ground and drive away without stopping completely.

Non-bonuses[]

Better known as scrollers, these texts appear when the player matches certain criteria, similar to bonuses, but unlike bonuses, you don't gain credits from them.

All games[]

  • Wot/What a punt!: A pedestrian has been killed in a stupid or gruesome matter. Generally appears if said pedestrian wasn't killed at its first strike.
    • In Reincarnation, this is achieved by knocking a ped a long distance without killing them.
  • Dropped like a stone: A pedestrian fell from a high height.

Trivia[]

  • Carmageddon has data for a "rollover bonus" that was eventually removed. It was meant to be awarded if the player were to roll onto the roof and end up back on the car's wheels.
  • By swapping the "c" and "st" in "cunning stunt", one gets a positive comment about a woman's genitals. This pun has been nodded at several times on the [www.carmageddon.com official website].
