Twisted Metal: Black (2001):
Here is what you must do to unlock the following characters:
At the Junkyard, shoot the circling plane with either a fire missile or homing missile to bring it down. It will crash and create a hole in the side of the building. Go inside and find Yellow Jacket in there; shoot the control panel and you will unlock him.
At the Suburbs, go into the carnival area, then drive over the hill with the gas can on it. You will land on a building with a vent on it. Destroy the vent and a hole will appear; fall inside the building and you will find Warthog.
At the Freeway, go to the construction area. You will see a box being held by a crane. Shoot it down as best as you can (with the best missiles), and the crane will turn and drop the box. Destroy the box when it lands, and you will unlock Axel.
At the Prison Passage, go to the “belly” of the ship. At the far left, you will see two destructible boxes. Destroy them, then get on top of them, then shoot at the ship’s wall in front of you. It will open a secret door that leads you into a hidden room. In there, you will find Manslaughter.
Unlock Minion by beating the game as every character.
Here is what you must do to unlock the following battlegrounds:
At the Junkyard, throw two gas cans at the statue that looks like Luigi. It will explode and shatter into pieces. One of the pieces will land at the foot of the vertical crusher. Use the piece as a ramp that helps you to get onto the crusher once it comes down. The crusher will lift you up, and you will see a Black Cube in the air. Get off the crusher and grab that cube so you can unlock Warhawk’s Rooftop as a multi-player battleground.
At the Suburbs, while you are on the same building where you find Warthog, drive quickly onto the other rooftops in front of you. Also, you have to destroy the water tower in order to get to the one that is distant from you. Make sure you use your turbo and jumping ability. The final rooftop you have to reach has a Black Cube hidden by a vent. Quickly jump over onto it, touch the cube, and you will unlock the Prison Passage.
At the Highway Loop, destroy one of the giant white balls that are next to the raised bridge. Make sure the coast is clear first; some other cars can destroy your ball. The ball will roll over the raised bridge, into the tunnel, and will smash the left wall. Go inside and you will find the Black Cube to unlock the Elevators as a multi-player battleground.
At Downtown, get onto one of the elevators. Make sure you aim yourself at the giant coffee cup. Get down onto the coffee shop, destroy the cup, and grab the Black Cube to unlock Minion’s Stadium.
At the Snowy Roads, go to the gas station area, where you will find a slope that leads down into a secret area. As you go right and up the following hill, you will find the Black Cube to unlock the Power Plant as a multi-player battleground.
At the Skyscrapers, stand on the billboard bridge. Make sure the crashed plane is very slightly in sight. Drive right off and you will grab the Black Cube that unlocks the Sewers as a multi-player battleground.
At Warhawk’s Rooftop, drive right towards the building where the Tanker comes of. You will grab the Black Cube that is in the air, so you can unlock the Skyscrapers.
Destroy ten vehicles without dying in Endurance Mode, at the Snowy Roads, to unlock the Freeway.
Destroy ten vehicles without dying in Endurance Mode, at the Drive-In Movie, to unlock the Mini Suburbs as a multi-player battleground.
Destroy fifteen vehicles without dying in Endurance Mode, at the Junkyard, to unlock the Prison Ship as a multi-player battleground.
