Hey Ive seen some incredable screenshots across the forums and I was wondering how do you guys turn off the HUDs I have had some screenshots where I had to crop them out :(       (the keybinds for camera angles would also be helpful)


Also completly unrelated does the thawfest Screaming death armor have have racing stats?

Q's about Racing Armor? I'm your guy.

Press 'Ctrl' and '-' or '+' repeatedly to enter free cam mode (gets rid of HUDs) Then once you enter the mode where you're zoomed out away from your Vikings normal point of view, right click to rotate angle, mouse wheel to scroll in/out, forward/backward, left click to move horizontally and vertically. If you only have a touchpad, get a mouse XD. Touchscreens also work, three finger swipe to zoom in/out, two finger swipes move the camera horizontally and vertically, one finger swipes move rotate camera. The Thawfest Screaming Death armor from the shop has speed stats and DT stats, the ones obtained from the Thawfest DT levels do not have speed stats I believe. Hopefully you'll have fun with screenshots! c:

~~~~~~~~~  About Me In-Game  ~~~~~~~~~


I have been playing since winter of 2013, almost the time the game came out, I was a little kid then, and still love the game from long-ago memories. I made my main account under the name "StormySavage" in May of 2018. I am called "Stormy", or Marshmallow (Marshy for short) by my friends because we all have food nicknames XD. I have been racing competitively in Thunder Run Racing since winter of 2019, and can say that TRR is my favorite minigame. I have completed all the DT levels, and gotten all the tier three Bewilderbeast armor, and the best weapons, so I am mostly retired from DT. I am a UDT, and have lots of dragons and trophies. I have participated in all the Dreadfall, Snogletogg, and Thawfest events (no matter how buggy xD), and actively do battle events. I am the proud Leader and Founder of Savage Nation, High Voltage, and Broken Glass Kids.

sheesh my subject

  Sooo as i person who bought a full screaming death thawfest armor from shop, sold it than got it in DT I was kinda suspicious about my stats not working . i tested the thawfest chest plate that i got in DT and here is my score on escape the cave racing map:

than i equipped skill armor to compare the time

after that i equipped basic tunic that gives no speed bonus or similar and my score looked like this

as you can see SD thawfest chest plate and skrill chest plate have almost the same time which means their stats are working and faster compared to basic t-shirt that has no racing stats.


SOOOOooooOOOo in conclusion DT items have speed stats i mean at least the chest plate i tested, but there is one thing bothering me and it is why would they make items in store tier 1 and items in DT tier 2, are they planning to eventually remove racing stats from tier 2 thawfest items that were obtained in DT, i read a thread by Hypergoof and they said they got that information from you, correct me if im wrong but i think it was about skrill armor that was obtained by (i believe)a promo code losing racing stats(im not sure if all DT skrill chest plates lost stats or just the one that was obtainable by a promo code),


so anyway when talking about skrill chest plate it isn't a big deal since it can always be purchased back with coins and owned as a lets call it "real" item aka item that isn't in DT equipment section, but when talking about thawfest chest plate which is a limited event item it would be a waste if it lost racing stats in future especially because players wont be able to get it back unless they purchased the tier 1 item from store. 


What would be your opinion on this and should i do some gem grinding and buy the armor from store or you forumers believe that DT thawfest chest plate stats wont disappear?

I just kept the SD chest from the store to be safe., so I'd gem grind and get the chest, all the other pieces have worse stats than other armors. Both the redeem code armors lost racing stats and were replaced with DT stats. The ones in the shop that you buy have racing stats, the sets from redeem codes have no racing stats.

- Norway (a really cute dragon, I use him for racing, and for exploring around)

- Blue (my battle event dragon, usually gets me in the top 3, before Blue, I used Sand)

- Wolf (a really cool dragon, I mainly use him for racing and dragon tactics)

Idek how you enter free cam mode on mobile, so can't help ya there. Try 3 finger swipes, not taps.

Once you hold down 'ctrl', you have to keep pressing '-' to exit that mode. Free cam mode goes away by going to a different map or exiting and re-entering the game.
