Unused Levels

Unused levels can be accessed with GameShark/Codebreaker for the NTSC-U versions of the game below. The maps are: Training, Lake Powell, and Tokyo Deathmatch. Lake Powell's internal name is "canyon1". Training has no textures but a ton of powerups. Lake Powell and Tokyo Deathmatch also have a beta HUD, Health, Energy, and Clocking pickups. The pause menu is also different. Lake Powell also contains beta missile pickups that act like a fuel truck when thrown.

Hidden Cheats

An entire set of cheats can be enabled. In order to input them, follow the steps below:

  1. Empty your energy gauge completely. You will see bubbles over your character if done right.
  2. You now have a limited amount of time to input the cheat, CODE ENABLER. Hold all the shoulder buttons (L1+R1+L2+R2) and while holding them, press this set of inputs to enable CODE ENABLER: D-Pad Down, D-Pad Left, Circle, D-Pad Down. You should hear a sound if done correctly.
  3. Wait approximately eight seconds (don't wait too long or the cheat above will reset!) You're free to dodge enemy fire in the meantime.
  4. Now, input this set of button inputs while holding all of the shoulder buttons again (L1+R1+L2+R2): Triangle, D-Pad Down, Square, D-Pad Up. If done correctly, you should see the text, CODES ENABLED in the top left corner of your screen.

You can now input all of the cheats below.

Make sure while inputting any cheat below, you are holding all of the shoulder buttons (L1+R1+L2+R2) during the process. If anyone dies while codes are enabled, they will all reset and you will need to do the entire process over again. This cheat system was later used in Twisted Metal: Black.

Unused Online Play and Modes

Titled "Monsters - Online". All of these modes are found within the network section of the game's code and are mostly complete. On the root of the DVD, you can find a file named"HOSTS.TXT", where it would at one point have held the main IP addresses to connect to. It is suggested that this mode was cut early on as the monster names are different. Within the list of player values you could choose from, the ID for Goliath Prime is present as well. You could also have CPU players in online matches. The unused modes in online are titled:

Blind Date
Weak Link

Old Monster Names (unique to network mode)

AssBoss (Goliath Prime)
