Riders Republic: Boost Tapping Addressed in Latest Update

June 14 Update
June 14 Update Twitter/@RidersRepublic

The latest update for Riders Republic is here, and it introduces a lot of new features and addresses some major problems, most notably the issue with boost tapping.

Boost tapping in Riders Republic is where you press the boost button almost frequently to beat other riders. While some love using this, others prefer not to spam boost at all. Thus, the developers addressed this by nerfing the ability so players will use the boost strategically. In other words, you now have to completely drain the bar before you can boost again.

The latest update for the game brings new features as well. For instance, a new setting is available in Photo Mode that allows you to capture that perfect moment in Showdown Mode.

Here are the other things available in this update:

  • Get ready to join a brand new Mass Race! Available from the weekly reset, on Wednesday
  • The Ridge will have new elements, it's a slam dunk!
