View Full Version : Dave Mirra 2 Impossible!

Well... Not the whole thing, but has anyone completed the:

Hardcore challenge on Woodward Park where you have to grind down 545 (or so) feet on those 5 split rails?

I've almost gotten thru the entire rest of the game, but for the life of me I STILL can't complete this damm challenge! I even try doing manuals if I don't make the jump between, but then I just end up losing too much speed. FYI: I'm using the Slim Jim Guy's #3 Bike.

Any help would be greatly appreciated... Thanks in advance.

Dude! That is the most frustrating challenge in the damn game! I can never grind all five rails so I just hit the last three because I can consistenly transfer between them. Then when I get to the end of the last one, I manual over to that go kart track and grind the long rail on the left to get over 525. It aint pretty, Its not efficient but it's the only way I can beat that freakin challenge. The only other challenge that gives me this much trouble is the insane challenge on swamptrails.

Haha! Glad I'm not the only one... I didn't even think to go to the left railing by the carts! Thanks a ton... I guess we'll find out soon how well that really works :rolleyes:

I'm not saying its easier but that was the only way I could do it. I hate that freakin challenge. I hope you have more luck than I do. I love that game but damn if it doesn't make me want to beat my controllers up against the wall.

I did it by just doing manuals in between the rails (doesn't matter if you miss one) then once i got to the end i just turned round and started grindin the rails UP the hill. Piece of cake.

Jon27, thanks for the incredible insight!

Aaaaanyways - Hermes, thanks a ton! I did it using the railing up the right side and got it on my 2nd try! Now I suppose it's back to the Swamp Trails for me, eh?

I have to admit though, that the game becomes makedly easier with a better bike as well... I'm on Slim Jim #3 with that guy. Cool.

Yeah Durden, you're definetly not the only one with that problem. I just did the cheat to open up all levels. But I still couldn't get the 525 Feet, and it ****ED ME OFF! I heard from my friend though that you can use manuals, and I tried it, and it worked. Still, they shouldn't of made that stunt so hard, and DEFINETLY not in the first level of the game!

it took me about 45 mins to complete......
im a natural at the game though.....im undefeated in multiplayer...:D

I never even thought to use manuals! That should make things much easier.
Man, I hope Mirra 3 is a bigger improvement over 2 than 2 was over 1. That would be sweet.
