Racer is a style where players play a simple time-trial race.


Use your hedgehogs to reach all waypoints faster than all other teams.


Before the start of the game, the first player must place 3-8 waypoints for the race. This is done by using the air attack weapon (automatically selected) and click on the places where the waypoints belong.

At least 3 and at most 8 waypoints have be set. Skip can be used to end placing waypoints. If the number of waypoints is valid or all 8 waypoints have been placed, the game begins, if not or the turn time runs out, the next player is given the chance to place the waypoints.


Each team will control its hedgehogs for 3 rounds and attempts to hit all waypoints as fast as possible. The order of the waypoints does not matter. The race begins as soon as the ready timer is up. Note: Players who use up their turn time (90 seconds) will have a pentalty time of 100 seconds recorded.

After each turn, the best times are recorded and shown in the mission panel.

When all 3 rounds have been played, the game ends and the team with the lowest round time in this match wins.


Basic configuration

Use the game scheme and weapon schemes for a basic configuration of the game. Most game scheme settings can be changed, but the following settings are fixed:

  • Infinite attack: Always on
  • Crate frequency: Never
  • Turn time: 90 seconds
  • Sudden Death water rise: Disabled

You can use the weapon scheme to give the players other tools. For instance, you could make a flying saucer race by setting infinite flying saucer instead of rope.

Number of rounds

Sorry, the number of rounds is fixed. It can not be changed yet.

Team-colored rope (0.9.22 or later)

Set the script parameter to “teamrope=true” to change the style of the rope. The rope will take the color of the clan.
