Firing All-Star attacks in reverse.
Gum's All-Star move aside, I've noticed many AI racers being able to fire "projectile" All-Star attacks in reverse (such as Amy's hammers, Gillius' axes, or Danica's wheels). I've tried to do this myself on many different characters but I can't seem to pull it off. Is it possible to fire certain All-Star attacks backwards, or is this yet another example of the cheating AI?

i acutally haven't tried this but i don't see people online doing this so i belive the ai is cheating

I have seen some weird things too, though it's not about all star attacks. I have seen some AI bots being able to shoot the blowfish backwards, and I'm not talking about dropping it behind, but shooting it in reverse. I can't figure out how to do it so I guess it's some sort of cheating.

I've never seen this, but I'll be "that guy" and ask: are you sure they didn't just ricochet off a wall 180 degrees?

Shogun was parallel to me in the home stretch of Galactic Parade and I watched him fire his missile barrage backwards. Shogun's All-Star move can't ricochet.

Well, your examples you gave all richocheted. Except maybe for Gilius, I dunno.

But, it's funny you mentioned this, since I booted the game up a few minutes after my first post and ate a reverse missile from TF2 point-blank. Good ol' cheating, colluding, crazy-inducing AI.

His axes do ricochet.

I know your point and I've seen that happen too. Probably should've listed Tails, Ulala, or Shogun for examples since I've seen them all do it too, and I can't seem to do it myself.

Gums attack is the only one in the game that fires backwards as she 'Leaves a trail of broken hearts wherever she goes'.

Everyone else fires forwards :)

This is done by pulling the left stick down and firing it. :P

That doesn't work. Try it yourself and you'll see that it only drops behind, like normal.

This rule/logic aparantly does not apply to CPU racers. But it's good to know that I myself can't do this, thanks for clearing that up.

You have to hold back the stick and hold down the A as if you were launching a set of 2 or 3. I have launched it back myself that way.

Edit: Just tested this myself and it seems I stand corrected. Not doable, though I could've sworn I have done it before. Oh well.

I don't know... I saw a video of the XBox 360 version where the player do this with Ulala's All Star !

I did it with Ulala by looking backwards and push down !
