What is Nitro Type?
Austin Butler from Teaching.com created the Nitro Type, which is a free online game. It was launched on 8 September 2011 for the first time, and after some months, it was later released from beta in January 2012. Over the Internet, Nitro Type makes learning to type on a keyboard enjoyable with the help of competing players against each other in real-time.
In the Nitro Type game, you play like a race car that will not move if you are not typing correctly the text displayed. It can only move when you type the text properly. The video below shows a Nitro Type race as well as how you compete against other players.
When you complete the race against all other cars, on the basis of how well you do in a race (your WPM, place, and accuracy), you will be rewarded with experience and Nitro Cash as well. Your racer will level up as you gather experience, which will allow you to collect distinctive season rewards. Furthermore, when you play the game and win the Nitro Cash, it allows you to buy additional vehicles, stickers, trails, and titles in order to personalize your garage.
You can make friends with other racers and race against them, join a team, and accomplish achievements in addition to racing to earn new gear and Nitro Cash.
How to race in Nitro Type
When you start to play the game Nitro Type, you have a few seconds to get set and interact with other racers with the help of using stickers. You must type the text precisely as provided in the bottom-center box once the race counts down and reads “GO.” When you are playing the game and you make a mistake while typing, a red alert is shown on the screen. You are not required to press the Backspace key in terms of correcting errors; instead, type the proper character. For instance, if you wrote a lowercase “e” instead of the word “Example,” the “E” would be highlighted in red. To fix the problem, type an uppercase “E” and then finish the word.
Your WPM (words per minute) average determines how many words you type in each race.
What are Nitros?
When the players are playing the Nitro Type, they can use the one Nitro they are granted each race by pressing Enter while racing in the game.

When you are racing, there are various reasons you may be disqualified:
- If your Internet connection is lost, you may get disqualified.

When you have entered an infinity tier, you will continue to acquire levels and receive $100,000 Nitro Cash for each one until the next season begins. Remember that cars and other trophies from past seasons are not available for purchase.
What are points?
After each race, points are distributed to each racer in order to rank racers and teams as well. The formula that determines the number of points is based on the racer’s WPM as well as accuracy for each race.
For instance, you and your team will get 123 points if you have finished the race with 60 WPM and a 95 percent accuracy by (100 + (60 / 2)) * .95.
Nitro Type points calculator
For instance, if your WPM score is 90 and your accuracy is 95% in 1 race, you will get “137” points. If you want to run this score and the races are 100, you will get “13775” points. Keep in mind that maintaining the same WPM and accuracy for all races is difficult; therefore, the overall points will vary.
How can I earn more points in Nitro Type?
Race as many games as possible in order to win more points, and work on improving your WPM and accuracy as well. For each race, the greater your WPM and accuracy, the more points you and your team win.
What are friends and teams?

Your pals will appear in the Friends area if your request has been accepted by your friend. It will allow you to compete against any online friend. Remember that you can make up to 1000 friends.
In the “My Settings” section, you can dismiss all friend requests if you don’t want to friend requests.
Teams on Nitro Type
Champion emblems for the top team and racer in Nitro Type. For $50,000 Nitro Cash, anyone can have the ability to form a team on Nitro Type. In order to get the most points in seven days, teams of up to 50 racers to a group and fight against other teams. Your points will be added to the Top Teams list (top 100 teams) if your team earns enough points. If your team makes it to the top 50, everyone on the squad receives a Top 50 Team champion symbol. You will be listed as a Top 10 Team (shown in the picture) if your team makes it to the top ten. The members of the top 1, 2, and 3 teams are also shown as a Top 1, 2, and 3 Team.
Note: The team standings are based only on the points earned over the previous seven days. On the basis of the previous seven days, your team’s standing rises or falls. In other words, if the previous seven days were not more than the previous seven days, it may appear that your points are decreasing.
It is extremely difficult for teams to reach the Top 100, especially the desired Top 10 positions. You need to look out how many races a competitor has done in the last 24 hours if you have created a team and want to move up your position. For case, if the team in position 100 raced 709 races in the previous 24 hours, your team will need to complete 709 races every day to stay in the Top 100.

Furthermore, many teams construct a Discord server as a result of the limited communication options.

You can disband your team if you want to quit and join another one. The team is deleted when you disband.
Note: There is a need to attend; you are unable to transfer your Nitro Type team to another player. Also, there is no way to change the captain of the team. Hence, you cannot change the team captain.
How can I join a team?

Buying and selling Nitro Type accounts
Nitro Type accounts with several races are purchased, sold, and traded by certain players. On the other hand, as it is simple to generate new accounts with 30-50 thousand races by cheating; therefore, the values of many accounts have fallen because of cheating.
For some folks, older accounts with unique cars are still valuable.
Cheating on Nitro Type
Unfortunately, some people cheat in Nitro Type, as they do in most online competitive games, but Nitro type does not allow the player to cheat. However, on Nitro Type, players cheat with the help of swapping botting, accounts, sandbagging, as well as developing macros. Nitro Type features CAPTCHAs to help prevent some botting and bans users who are caught cheating. When you look at the elite racers who race 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in hundreds of thousands of races, it’s clear that some cheaters are still cheating.
