Changing gears in Monster Energy Supercross 6

If one doesn’t want the computer to have complete control of the gear changes, players in Monster Energy Supercross – The Official Videogame 6 do have the option to go either up or down in gears. All that has to be done is to press and few buttons.

To shift up in gears, press either B (for Xbox) or Circle (for PlayStation) on the controller to push up. Ideally, one should move up in gears when the bottom-right indicator on the screen goes to red. One can also tell when to shift up by listening to the engine. If you hear a lot of loud humming, shift up.

To shift down in gears, press X (for Xbox) or Square (for PlayStation). Shifting down should be done on turns, when it’s hard to maintain high velocity. Shifting down makes it much easier to transition on a turn and get back up to a high speed.

The computer will change gears automatically, but in some cases, it’s actually more efficient for the player to take over manually. Keep your eyes on the bottom-right part of the screen, and the indicator will keep track of what gear you’re in, and whether it needs to be changed.
