I was wondering, what happens when you die, and while falling, you pick up a Power-up on your way down?

You collect coins and spin tokens, but I think vehicle pickups are no ops. –  badp Jan 20 '13 at 13:40

  • You can collect coins after you die. The game tracks how many coins you collected.
  • You can collect spin tokens after you die. The game tracks how many times this happens.
  • You cannot collect vehicle powerups after you die. I've just managed to pass squarely above one using a post-mortem nuke; nothing happened. Unfortunately it happened too quickly for me to grab a screenshot.

You can see these numbers under the Death portion of your Statistics in the Stash.

It's not possible to pick up vehicles after your demise. I have seen this personally on at least one run, where Mr. Steakfries' body passed right through a power up without anything happening.

Yeah using revives when a power-up is on the screen will make the power-up disappear too so don't think of collecting it by using revives

You pass right through it, although I have had a bug where I wasn't in the vehicle, and I got it before dying.
