This guide will show you how to make combos in Mario Kart Tour. Additionally, it will explain factors on how to trigger combos and tips for making big combos.

What is a Combo?


A combo is a set of different bonus actions performed within a short period of time. Just like in many other games with combos, you can do multiple actions in succession to give you a combo multiplier that will greatly boost your score.

How to Combo

Doing combo in Mario Kart Tour is simple. You just need to do any of the following within a short period of time:

These will trigger a combo multiplier that can multiply your points greatly. While combo time is active, do any of these to extend it even further.

Factors for Combo Action

Rocket Start

Rocket Start is the very first action you can do to start your combo. After doing the rocket start you can follow with a mini turbo boost or other actions that can trigger a combo.

Glide Time

Glide Time can trigger combos just by staying up in the air for a long time and it will multiply your combo greatly.

Different Types of Boost

Doing different types of boosts (mini-turbo, jump, etc.) can increase your combo multiplier so try doing a lot of boosts consecutively.

Using Items

Using items such as throwable and power-up items can continue your combo streak or start your combo. Always use items to increase your combo!

Item Frenzy triggers a big combo boost by just tapping continuously the screen which will use items and give you an easy combo.

Taking Out Obstacles

Taking out obstacles such as Traffic Cones, Sheep, Goombas, or Pipes can continue your combo so if you see one, take them out!

Tips for Combo Action

Pick a Favored Glider for the Course

Picking a glider at its favored course can give a combo bonus and big combo time boost. It is always better to equip the best glider that will favor the course to gain more combo bonuses.

Raise your Glider's Skill Level

Be sure to level up Glider Skill, as it will further increase combo time. You can level up your glider by obtaining and using a level up ticket or getting a duplicate glider from the the Pipe or from the daily select shop.

Favorability Explanation
⬆⬆⬆ Combo bonus x3 and big combo-time boost
⬆⬆ Combo bonus x2 and combo-time boost
Combo bonus x1

How to Raise Your Skill Level

Always Drift and Use Mini-turbos

If you cannot trigger a combo or continue a combo you can always depend on boosts, especially the Mini-turbo boost, which you can use anytime to start or continue a combo.

Item Frenzy

Item Frenzy is the best boost for a combo because you can just tap continously to trigger combos. Be sure to take advantage of it when you have a frenzy.

Be Mindful of the Duration

Combo duration only lasts for 1.5 seconds. If you do not do any action after that, the combo will break. Be sure to connect another combo action before that happens!
