Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2: How To Bluntside The Awning

It's easy when you know what to do.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2, the remastered pairing of the Birdman's first two virtual outings, is out now.

The game is an almost entirely faithful return to those classics, right down to one of the more confusing challenges.

Here's how to Bluntside the Awning. 

THPS 1 + 2: How To Bluntside The Awning

This one caused no end of confusion back in the day, and it may leave you scratching your head now.

The challenge is found in the Philadelphia level and requires you to use a grind trick called a Bluntside in a certain spot.

The trouble is that by default, players don't have the required trick equipped.

That means you'll want to unlock said trick in the shop and assign it to one of your special move slots.

Then, you'll want to build up your special meter and use it to pull off the trick at the required spot.

If you can't find the awning, don't forget that you can head into the menu and get a refresher on where all the checklist items are.

Happy... er... bluntsiding, we guess?
