  • Always something special – If you activate this option, your special display will always be full.
  • No deposit – Turn this on and you will never miss a trick.

Use reverts and manuals to expand combos

This is pretty easy, but beginners should get into the habit of creating reverts and manuals. With these skills you can string together tricks and keep combos going for a surprisingly long time. This way you will collect hundreds of thousands or even millions of points at once. When descending on a vert ramp, press R2 while hitting the ramp to reverse. Manuals are executed by pressing up and down on the directional pad. You can also press down and then up for a nasal manual. When you combine these techniques you can get some crazy results.

Keep your board facing forward when landing

It may sound obvious, but you need to make sure that your skateboard is aligned with the direction you are driving. If you are going up a vert ramp and twisting a little, make sure you are facing the right direction before landing or you will fail the trick and fall over. The same applies to level ground. If your wheels aren’t pointing in the right direction, you’ll be bailed, which could cost you a ton of points.

Mix up your tricks

If you want to get those really high scores, you need to keep things varied. Tricks degrade every time you repeat them on a run, which means you won’t get on the leaderboards just spamming kickflips and melon grabs. Use your entire arsenal of tricks and skills when performing combos for more points. Change the direction inputs to perform different tricks, and make note of a few specific tricks that you can bring into the mix as well. Variety is the spice of life and also the key to getting a high score.

Stand up with R2

Sometimes you rush towards the ground and don’t land on your board. If you encounter a vert ramp but are heading for a flat surface, you can realign yourself so you don’t have to bail. Hold R2 and your skater straightens up, puts the skateboard under him and makes sure that you land safely.

When in doubt, grind it out

Typically, Tony Hawks Pro Skater 1 + 2 can tell you where you are going, but occasionally you may find yourself in a difficult position. If you’re flying through the air and aren’t sure where you’re going to land, our tip is to keep Triangle. Triangle lets you perform lip tricks, grinds, and wall rides. So it’s a pretty versatile button that you can use as a safety net at times. If you’re holding Triangle, there’s a pretty good chance you’ll style it with a grind or wallride. This is of course not guaranteed, but the game’s levels are full of curbs, rails, and vertical surfaces. So this works more than you might think.

Walls are not the enemy

As you head towards a wall, you might think this is the end of your combo. Indeed, walls are an opportunity to keep a combo going. With one press of Triangle you can do a wallride as mentioned above, but you can also do a wall plant. Let’s say you are grinding and walking towards a flat wall. Jump off the rail and if you want to collide with the wall press X and you will do a wall plant. This will bounce you off the wall and push you back in the opposite direction. Kind!
