Mario Kart 7 Tips And Tricks

Mario Kart 7 was recently released and it has tons of features. One of the best features is the online play. These tips and tricks will help you take home the gold when you play. Let’s get started

No something that you think should be added? Let me know and I’ll add it and give you credit.

Mario Kart 7 Online tips and tricks 1 – Coins – Veterans of the series will know that coins = speed. Grab as many coins as you can to increase your speed. It has a cap on how many you can get but with each hit you take you will lose some. Try to maintain the max amount as long as you can. Also the more coins you get the more parts you unlock.

Mario Kart 7 Online tips and tricks 2 – Power Slide – Dumbed down recently but still gives you a speed boost. Hold R when taking a turn to start a power slide. Its up to you to figure out which corners are worth it and which ones are not. Get it down and you will have a huge advantage.

Mario Kart 7 Online tips and tricks 3 – Mario Kart 7 start boost – Every Mario Kart has this sop of course it is here. Right before the start of the race you can get yourself a small boost. Right when the 2 goes away on the countdown hold the A button and if you do it right you will get the small boost.

Mario Kart 7 Online tips and tricks 4 – Defensive items – Not all items have to be used offensively. A shell can counter another shell, unless it is the blue shell. The Tanooki Tail can be used to hit people near you or block shells coming at you. Try to save your items unless you need to make a move into first.

Mario Kart 7 Online tips and tricks 5 – Front of the pack – Not a good idea to be in front on the last lap. The game has a way of making it even for the less talented players by giving them absurd items. If you are in first on lap three expect to be hit with a blue shell or something else. Stay between 2-4 in order to avoid this most of the time. If you see a blue shell coming at you try to slow down so the second place person is hit as well. 😉

That will end the Mario Kart 7 Online tips and tricks and the Mario Kart 7 start boost. Check back soon for more guides!

  1. You can also “avoid” the blue shell under very rare circumstances. What you need is a great sense of timing and a booster mushroom. As the blue shell is on its way to strike you boost out of its path and you will be safe. This is the only way I’ve ever personally avoided this item. It may even be the only way.

  2. no, stay in first, staying back will prevent you from getting 3 star rank. You also forgot about snaking, it’s really effective in this game, even though there isn’t enough time for you to get the red sparks.

  3. You can also turn around on the spot. This can be done by holding down the a and b buttons and moving the circle pad in the disired direction. This is useful if you get stuck behing a wall or similar obstacle.

  4. On mario circuit 2 when you fly turn left than u see a yellow whole big brick that bobs up and down fly on that then fly other. The sand and u will land on the finish line

  5. Also, even though the technique of snaking isn’t as helpful in MKDS, it can still get you out of a tight situation. Oh and you forgot the most fun hack to perform of all, that’s the Maka Wuhu track glitch. Consider yourself lucky if u are reading this, what you have to do is right after you pass the section 2 sign on the Maka Wuhu track, before going into the cave, ,make a sharp turn and fly into the water. If performed correctly, latiuku ( the guy flying on the cloud) will bring you up behind the castle, which is a whole 3rd of the track away! This shaves off about 40 seconds of your time , pretty muck securing the win for you. Yeah, ur welcome

  6. on neo bowser city theres a clown copter. fly for it and get a boost and skip some of the track. ALSO THERE IS A WAY TO AVOID THE BLUE SHELL WITHOUT ANYTHING!!!!!! ALL YOU DO IS IF YOU SEE A PLAYER WITH A BLUE SHELL BACK UP TO SECOND AND MOVE OUT OF THE WAY AND THE SECOND PERSON WILL GET HIT AND NOT YOU!!!!!

  7. When I play online I either face nerds with no lives, or people that just suck. I saw this guy with 5 vr the other day. (he was probably mental tho). Also that damn Maka Wuhu glitch was driving me insane when I’d always come in 6-8 place when racing there online. Now that I know it I come in 1-4 place 🙂

  8. If you bump into a wall, and you have mushrooms, and you press R and you turn quickly, you get a turbo boost away from the wall.
    U’re welcome!
