Twisted Metal makes its way onto the second generation of Sony consoles, after their last few outings on the PlayStation left a lot to be desired.

It's also the most popular of the Twisted Metal games, probably due being absolutely covered in such prime early-2000s edginess that even the Carmageddon franchise hadn't dipped their toes into.

Hidden Cheats

Several cheats, never discovered before can be inputted while in game. While inside the game, hold L1+R1+L2+R2 while pressing the following buttons:

Button Inputs Reward Effect
Triangle, X, Left, Right Health Regain It's unclear how this works.
Square, Square, Square, Down Infinite Weapons Gives you all weapons and unlimited ammo.
Up, X, Up, X Everything Unlocked (Enable Code) You will hear a confirmation gun sound effect if inputted correctly. No message will be displayed. This is needed in order to activate the cheat below.
Circle, Left, Circle, Left Everything Unlocked Unlocks all cars and players. You will need to activate the cheat above first or this cheat will not work. You will also need to wait 12 seconds after activating the cheat above for this cheat to work. After 12 seconds have passed, you may enter this cheat. You cannot exceed the time limit of 24 seconds or the above cheat will reset.

The unlock everything cheat is pretty tricky to get right. If you fail to activate it under 24 seconds, you will need to enable the cheat Everything Unlocked (Enable Code) again.

Playable Warhawk

At one point in development, it appeared you could play as Warhawk. His image as seen below is in the character select screen. It is not normally possible to play as him however, with hacks the player can play as him.

Unused Car Select Screen

This screen was most likely a early mock-up version of the final car select screen.

Regional Differences

Careful, you'll lose an eye.
This page or section needs more images.
There's a whole lotta words here, but not enough pictures. Please fix this.

Due to the excessive violence contained within the cutscenes, the European versions removes nearly all of the cutscenes (and thus the whole backstory). This also resulted in the removal of the flavor text from the loading screens. Fittingly, the "Movies" option on the main menu was replaced with merely a "Credits" option.

In the US version, blowing up a vehicle will either send the driver running out screaming while on fire or get thrown out of their car. The European version removed this. Moreover, due to the European version being released after 9/11, the plane in Junkyard has been already crashed and the player can access the secret area with no additional effort. However, this makes getting the "Jet Fatality" bonus impossible.
