Lawnmower Challenge Tips
PLEASE! Does anybody have any tips for this challenge? It's the bane of my existence. You hit them at a reasonable pace, and you fly off, but if you hit them at a slower speed it barely does any damage. They can hit me going crazy speeds and rarely if ever fall off.

If I survive until there's ten opponents left, everybody is just a person hovering above or somewhere near a steering wheel and four wheels all clipping into each other, making them next to impossible to hit, and if I do manage to hit that tiny, moving target, most of the time I just bounce/graze off of it because the hit box is so tiny and the center of gravity is all messed up. My mower tips so easily when it's like this, but theirs seem to be rooted like trees.

I needs tips! Anything! Tipping them seems to help, but damn if I can seem to do it consistently. The sweet spot seems very small and you have to hit it at just the right angle and speed. Any help or tips would be greatly appreciated!

This is hands down the most frustrating thing I've done in a long time. It wouldn't be so bad if it registered half of the takedowns as takedowns instead of assists. There's zero skill in this. It's all just luck. Sometimes if I hit them in the side they flip, other times I go flying. Oftentimes I'm not even going very fast. It would be a little easier if I could spam the reset button, but the game insists on starting me with my car pointing up a hill, so I basically have to reverse at the start instead of drive forward. I can't wait until I'm done this so it's over with ugh.

The key to wrecking the AI lawnmowers is to either hit them with a speed advantage so that they will ragdoll instantly, or hit them to the side so that they will roll over. If you're starting to roll over yourself you should steer into the opposite direction to balance the lawnmower.

In the next update the lawnmower handling will be improved and the challenge will be a time-limited deathmatch with respawns so it will be easier to rack up takedowns without having to be afraid of being insta-killed.

Speaking of deathmatches, could there be an option to disable the contact timer in them?
Multiplayer deathmatches have been ending with half the feild unable to respawn due to it running down, not much you can do if you have been roofed (resets in a DD are heresy)!

I talk to Janne about this, seem there was a oops with Deathmatches and will be fix in next Build release.
Thank you for the tips on this quest. I would like to add that I hope the next patch for this will let the guy just jump off the mower. Or get up and walk away, as these dead bodies all over is nasty, sometime you run over them and its awful. Now I like a shooter game too now and then but getting dead with a lawnmower thats just sad. Smiles peeps.
