CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars – A Guide To Building The Best Cars


Not all fun and exciting multiplayer car games involve racing. Some of them involve fighting like the CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars published by ZeptoLab. It’s an action game where you get to build battle bots and then pit it against another battle bot. The goal for each car is to destroy the other. A winner is declared once the other has been completely destroyed.

The great thing about CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars is that you’re the one who builds the battle bot to use in the game. That’s right, you have the freedom to build your own fighting vehicle in this game. But how do you build your vehicle? What are the best weapons to use? How should your vehicle look? To help you create the best vehicles this article guides you on vehicle creation in CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars.

Choosing The Body or Chassis Type

One of the first things that you will do when building your vehicle is to choose the body or chassis type that you will use. There are 5 chassis types to choose from, Classic, Sneaky, Titan, Surfer, and Boulder. When choosing the chassis type, what you will need to look at will be power stat, health stat, and the placement of the item box.

The power stat will be represented by a lightning bolt symbol and will determine the weapons you can place on the chassis. Each weapon and item will consume a certain amount of power. The higher the power on your chassis, the better since it means you can equip more powerful weapons and items. Having high health is also advantageous since it makes you much harder to kill.

The last consideration is the placement of the item box. This is important because the placements of your attachments can make or break your chassis. For example, you have a chassis with high health and high power but the placement of the attachments is a bit awkward. You would have a hard time using the chassis since the awkward attachment placement makes it hard to find a weapon to use. Make sure the placements won’t make it difficult to find a weapon for the chassis.

Choosing the Right Weapon and Items

Now that you have an idea, it’s time to decide on the weapon and items. The items are the defensive equipment you can attach to your chassis. The best one to use right now is the forklift since this item flips cars over or lifts them up. It’s a good defense against enemies using drill, chainsaw, or rocket. Lifting them or flipping them over means their weapon becomes useless as it’s not aiming at you anymore. There are many more defensive items available but they pale in comparison to the forklift.

For the weapons, there’s the drill, chainsaw, rocket, laser, blade, and many more. The drill and chainsaw are powerful weapons that can quickly deal continuous damage. As long as the drill or chainsaw is touching the enemy’s chassis, they’re receiving damage. The rocket will shoot rockets forward to enemies while the laser shoots lasers. They’re weapons that are best used if the weapon attachment is placed near the back of the vehicle.

The blade is a weapon that rotates and deals damage whenever it hits the enemy cars. It’s might seem weak in comparison to the others. But it’s a weapon that can still damage enemies even if you’re flipped over. This is especially true if the weapon attachment placement happens to allow it to target a certain area around the car. The best weapons to use are the drill and chainsaw but the most versatile is the blade.

Final Thoughts

Building the best cars in CATS: Crash Arena Turbo Stars will depend greatly on the available parts that you have. It will also depend on how you make use of those parts. Yes, you might equip the most powerful weapon with high stars. But the placement of the weapon is a bit off, so it’s still technically a useless weapon. You have to know how to properly use the parts and if they will fit perfectly on the chassis that you’re using.
