I have had Mario Kart for a long time now and have enjoyed it a lot (except when those freaking red turtle shells come at me). My question is about a habit that I have had when playing of trying to pick up multiple power up blocks if I have the chance thinking it will increase my chance of getting a good item. I now want to find out if this actually does help my chances at all of getting a good item. Thanks!
The item you get is only determined by two things:
- Your placing the moment you touch the Item Box. Racers in front tend to get defensive items, while those in the back get offensive ones.
- Your kart's Items rating. Having a low rating will mean you get more Mushrooms, while having a high one will mean you get more shells.
Collecting multiple Item Boxes at once has no effect.
