Carmageddon Wiki

The powerups in Carmageddon 2 come out from barrels and crates. There are different styles of these containers, and they reflect the type of item that will be given. There doesn't seem to exist much coherency in this, though.

The following is a list of all the game's 98 powerups. For the cheats, the first column indicates which text to write while the game is running to active the powerup. The second is the key(s) that need to be pressed when the LAPMYLOVEPUMP cheat is in effect.
