Mad Max Walkthrough and Guide – Find History Relics, Demolish Camps

Make your way through the Wasteland with information on camps, scraps and collectibles.

This is a free walkthrough for the Mad Max video game. Mad Max released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC on September 1, 2015. The game was developed by Avalanche Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WB Games). While it takes place in the Mad Max universe created by the Mad Max: Fury Road film, this is the only similarity between the movie and the game. Max is not modeled after Tom Hardy, Furiosa is not featured and events from the film are not in the game. 

The Mad Max video game is an open world, mission-based vehicular combat adventure with Max driving around the Wasteland in search of scrap and other artifacts. There are plenty of side activities to partake in that allow you to find different collectibles like hood ornaments or increasing your vehicle collection. You can also level up Max and his vehicle a multiple ways. 

Mad Max Tips

  • Early in the game, you should collect as much scrap as you can. It’s the currency of Mad Max and you’ll need it for almost everything.
  • Every camp you demolish will periodically award you with a set amount of scrap (usually 20 for each camp). Demolish as many camps as possible to increase the total amount of scrap you earn.
  • Use the harpoon to drag out drivers of enemy vehicles so you can ride around without being attacked and surprise your enemies.
  • If you’re in need of scrap, destroy enemy vehicles to collect the scrap they leave behind.
  • Turn in enemy vehicles to one of your strongholds to add that vehicle to your collection.
  • While you won’t have to worry about fuel for the Magnum Opus for the most part, it’s important to keep an extra fuel tank in the back of the car in case you need to use it for an explosion or to fill up another car’s tank.
  • Don’t drive recklessly in the Wasteland. Taking an ill-advised jump or even hitting a bump while driving too fast will cause damage to your vehicle, indicated by a crack on the screen (windshield).
  • If the Magnum Opus is heavily damaged during vehicle combat, jump out and dodge the enemy vehicles while Chum fixes it. It usually doesn’t take more than 30 seconds for Chum to completely repair the car.
  • Ammo is extremely limited in Mad Max. Do not waste ammo unless you absolutely have to (or to take out snipers once you have the long shot).
  • Using a shiv to finish off an opponent makes Max lose the weapon. You can only carry a limited amount of shivs, so use them sparingly.
  • During melee combat, always turn the camera so you can see a majority of the enemies surrounding Max. It’s not uncommon for enemies to attack off camera if it’s not positioned correctly.
  • Access all vantage point locations to spot as many areas of interest to make them appear on your map.
  • When you upgrade Max’s abilities via Griffa, you have to spend all of your points. You can’t spend two or three points, then leave. You’re also limited in how many points you can apply to each category based on your level. Keep this in mind and do not speak with Griffa unless you can spend all of your points on the categories you want upgraded.
  • When you find water, replenish your health first, then fill up your canteen. Water is somewhat scarce and food is even harder to find, so watch your health and replenish water as often as possible.
  • Food cannot be saved like water. When you find food, your choices are to leave it or eat it on the spot. If your health is nearly full, leave it for another time.
