4. DiRT 3 Battersea Compound

The Battersea Compound consists of three free roam zones you unlock after completing Seasons 1, 2 and 3. In each of these areas, you’re given various tasks to complete (the game calls them missions). There are 80 missions in total. You can check your progress at any time by pressing cn_start and selecting Missions.

Some drifts are very finicky and you have to hit them at just the right angle and with the right amount of speed. Also, you have to make sure to start all drifts before passing or going under the area it wants you to drift. I’d suggest using the Ford Fiesta Gymkhana 3.

Zone 1: Parking Lot
23 Missions

Hidden Packages - Find the hidden packages.

1/9 - Go off the dirt ramp to the left of the digger in front of you.

2/9 - Drive past the concrete pipe and pole, then turn right and go off the wooden ramp.

3/9 - Take the right that comes up immediately after landing and drive to the end of the platform.

4/9 - Drive off the end and head towards the far right corner from your position.

5/9 - Turn around and follow the left wall, then drive under the two large buried pipes and into the open container.

6/9 - Back out of the container, turn left and drive up the ramp onto the top of the containers. Drive to the opposite end atop the containers.

7/9 - Drop down and head left towards all the shipping containers stacked on top of each other. When you’re about halfway to them, drive under the scaffolding to the left.

8/9 - Continue towards the stacked containers and just before reaching them, turn left and drive under the truck trailer.

9/9 - Turn left and drive towards the large buried pipes. With both of them on your left, continue past them and straight ahead, towards the containers you drove atop earlier, to find the final hidden package next to some boxes and wooden pallets (right beside the white container that’s in between the blue containers).

Block Buster - Smash all the DC blocks.

From the last hidden package, turn left and drive towards the green DC blocks under the scaffolding in the distance. Smash these six blocks.

Spin Dryer - Do a triple spin inside the plastic blocks next to the power station.

Drive to the stacked containers again and to the left of them, between the plastic barriers, is the area where you need to do a triple spin. You’ll need a bit of speed to start the spin, then just continue it until you’ve done three full circles.

Slalom Lamp Posts - Slalom between the lamp posts at a minimum of 30 mph.

Drive to the corner where one of the hidden packages was located (the corner behind where you initially started). In this open area are four lamp posts (the poles with tires at the bottom). Wind around the four lamp posts in succession, keeping your car in second gear by just tapping the cn_RT.

Airborne - Complete a jump from either side of the dirt ramp.

Go back to where you initially started and jump off the large dirt ramp again.

180 Jump - Perform a 180 spin while jumping.

Return to the initial starting position and make sure you’re a good distance from the dirt ramp, as you’re going to need a lot of speed. Gun it towards the ramp and before going off, drift hard. Rewind if you’re unable to perform the 180 spin in the air and attempt it again.

Crossover Ramps - Complete a jump between the crossover ramps.

Go off one of the smaller ramps that are located between the large dirt ramps.

Powerstation Leap - Jump from the ramp onto the power station girder structure.

Completed while collecting the second hidden package.

Mother Trucker - Drift under the truck trailers.

Drift under the truck trailers where one of the hidden packages was located (to the left of the stacked containers).

Digger - Drift under the digger scoop.

Drift under the arm of the digger near the initial starting position.

Scaffold Structure - Drift under the scaffolding near the block of flats.

Drift under the scaffolding where the DC blocks were located.

Behind the Containers - Drift behind the containers.

Drift between the containers in the corner by the buried pipes.

Powerstation Girders - Drift through the power station girders.

Drift under the section that comes out from the rest of the platform surrounding the power station. This is located near the truck trailers you drifted under. It’s the first piece you land on after going off the ramp.

At the Ramp’s End - Drift between the concrete pipes and tires at the dirt ramp.

At the end of the dirt ramp, near the buried pipes, are two concrete pipes and two lamp posts. Drift between these, with the concrete pipes to the left and lamp posts to the right. This one seems to be very specific, make sure you start the drift before passing between the first pipe and post and just drift slightly. I nailed the drift many times with a tight drift but it wasn’t until I just slightly drifted through that it counted.

Between the Jumps - Drift between the large dirt ramps.

Drift between the dirt ramps, coming from the side without the scaffolding and starting from the left. Start the drift just before the smaller ramp that’s left of the dirt ramp.

Under the Jump - Drift under the dirt ramp scaffolding.

Drift under the scaffolding between the dirt ramps, where one of the hidden packages was located. Another picky one, come from the left side and make sure you start the drift before going below the scaffolding.

Pipe Dream - Drift through the buried large pipes.

Slightly drift through the two buried pipes. As always, start the drift prior to entering the pipe.

Can You Dig It - Do a double donut around the cab section of the digger.

Donut around the body of the digger, fully circling twice.

19 Missions

Hidden Packages - Find the hidden packages.

1/7 - Drive under the crane slightly to the right and continue in that direction towards the alcove on the side of the power station.

2/7 - Turn around and drive back under the crane. Continue in that direction towards the crane in the distance, then drive under the container to the right of the forklift.

3/7 - Turn right and drive into the garage. Drive into the third group of boxes on the right (the one right after the red spin zone) and directly into the wall.

4/7 - Go out the other end of the garage and continue straight, up to the raised area, then up the ramp ahead. Turn right at the top, then drive under the crane and go to the far end. Turn right again and into the open blue container.

5/7 - Back out all the way until you fall off the containers. Ignore the open container directly in front of you and enter the other open container to the right.

6/7 - Back out of this container, turn right and drive through the small fence slightly to your right.

Crazy Legs Cranes - Do a triple spin under any of the three four-legged cranes.

Drive back around to the Depot area and find the nearest crane, then start a spin underneath it and circle around three times.

Warehouse Spin - Perform a spin while driving through the warehouse.

Go back to the garage, get some speed and drive into it. Perform a spin while moving through it and come out the other end.

Like a Record - Do a triple spin on a corner of the raised containers.

Go back to the raised area and up the ramp to the top of the containers. Drive to the end near where you found the hidden package in the container and start a spin, fully circling around three times.

Container Gap - Jump the ramped gap between the containers.

Still atop the containers, drive back under the crane then turn left. Go off the jump ahead.

Take It to the River - Jump the car into the River Thames.

Drive back to the start and head to where you found the hidden package by the forklift under the container. Drive off the edge here into the river.

Thread the Needle - Drop off the containers into an open container.

Head back onto the containers to where you just did the spin. Drive up the nearby ramp and face away from where you initially started in this area (facing the stacked containers). Straight ahead, on the bottom row of the stacked containers, is an open container (you can easily see it if you change your view). Drive down the ramp, off the containers, and into the open container. You’ll have to rewind if you hit the sides.

Trailer Trash - Jump through the open container near the river.

Go back to where you just drove into the river. Drive up the ramp by the forklift into the container that had the hidden package underneath. You’ll need a bit of speed for it to actually register.

Ramp to Roof - Jump from the ramp onto the roof of the warehouse side building.

Go to the side of the garage and off the ramp that had the final hidden package underneath. Just barely go off the ramp for it to register.

Forklift Drift - Drift behind the forklift nearest to the river.

Drift around the forklift straight ahead, starting from the right.

Container Slide - Drift around the corner between the power station and the Depot.

Head towards the stacked containers, driving under the two cranes. Turn right after passing under the second crane (the stacked containers should be to your left). If you face the entrance to the power station, you’re going to have to drift between the wall and the containers to the right of the entrance.

You need a pretty wide drift for this to count, so reverse until you’re back under the second crane. Drive right up next to the stacked containers and start your drift. You want to be starting your drift just after the first open container on the bottom row.

Get on Up and Slide - Drift around a corner of the raised area surrounding the yard.

Go back to the raised area and up the ramp onto the containers. Go over the jump then turn left, drive under the crane, and stop. Turn around and drive towards the blue containers ahead, starting your drift as you approach the wooden bridge.

Under the Crane - Drift under the free-standing crane.

Drive back under the two cranes leading to the stacked containers and drift under the second one. Start the drift from the right and drift turning left.

Zone 3: Power Station
30 Missions

Hidden Packages - Find the hidden packages.

1/8 - Drive towards the dirt ramp slightly to the left in the distance. Go off of it, then turn around when you reach the crane. Now go off the ramp to the left of the dirt ramp (the one that causes your car to do a barrel roll). Rewind if you were unable to hit the hidden package and try again.

2/8 - Head back to the crane and turn left to drive down a curved slope. At the bottom, 180 to the right to the other side of the railing. Drive forward and turn right when the wall ends.

3/8 - Turn around and head left. Keep heading straight under the cranes and keep an eye on the right side to find the hidden package close to the other end.

4/8 - Drive out the other end and up the curved slope. Follow the outer right wall of the area and go into the power station when you come to the entrance by the truck trailers. Drive forward and go up the ramp you come across. Keep taking the ramps all the way up and drive off the ramp at the very top.

5/8 - Head back down the ramps you just drove up. Turn left at the bottom and enter the large pipe directly in front of you (entrance is to the left). Drive up the wall of the pipe to do a loop and hit the hidden package at the top, in the middle.

6/8 - Exit the pipe and drive up any ramp in the power station to go up one level. Drive over to the pipe on this level and get on top of it.

7/8 - Drop down off the pipe and position yourself so the pipe is directly to your left. Drive to the wall directly left of the entrance ahead and to the back of the alcove.

8/8 - Back out until the pipe is to your left, then go up the ramp to your right. Turn right at the top and follow it around. Ignore the first left you come across and take the second. Take the first left to find the final hidden package.

Corkscrew the Pipe - Drive upside-down inside the pipe in the power station.

Head back to the large pipe and instead of driving straight up the wall, drive slanted up the wall. The goal is to have one fluid loop, from one end to the other, while driving through the pipe. This may take a couple of attempts to have it register properly.

Top-Spin Dryer - Perform a triple spin at the top level of the power station.

Drive to the very top of the power station again and start a spin in the spin zone, circling around three times.

Spin Dry Jetty - Do a triple spin under the cranes on the jetty.

Exit the power station through the main entrance and head towards the two cranes in the distance (you have to cross a bridge to reach them). Start a spin under one of them and circle around three times.

Steel Spinner - Do a triple spin amongst the submerged steel girders.

Head back across the bridge and turn left. There’s a spin zone between the short pieces of metal clustered together. Do a spin there, circling around three times.

Stairset - Drive down the stairs.

Head toward the nearby curved slope that leads down to the river (you drove down it earlier to collect some hidden packages). Instead of turning left and driving down it, continue past it. Turn left into the area with a forklift and continue following the left wall. At the end, 180 to the left and drive down the stairs. If it doesn’t register, reverse back up and get a little bit of speed this time.

Rolling Stock Leap - Jump onto the trains from the riverside.

Head back to where you initially started. If you’re looking at the dirt ramp, there’s a ramp to your left on top of some tires. Go off of this ramp to land on some buildings.

Scaffold to Parking Lot Leap - Jump up the scaffold side ramp into the Parking Lot.

Go off the wooden ramp to your left on the side of the power station. It seems you’ll need quite a bit of speed for this one to register.

Railway Hopper - Jump onto the trains via the ramp furthest from the river.

Turn around and drive under the furthest truck trailer. Go off the ramp ahead, similar to the one you already went off, to land on the buildings again.

Leap of Faith - Jump across the gap at the top of the power station.

Completed while collecting the fourth hidden package.

Make the Gap - Jump the gaps between the scaffolding inside the power station.

Go back into the power station and go up one level from the ground floor. At one end of the large pipe is an unfinished bridge. Gain some speed and jump across it.

Table Topper - Clear the scaffold tabletop jump in the power station.

Go to the main entrance of the power station and turn around to be facing the inside of the power station. Drive to the opposite entrance, flip back around and back all the way up. Now drive back up the middle to go off a little ramp in the center to clear the flat section. You’ll see where you’re supposed to jump because it has an orange arrow on it.

Locomotive Leap - Land a jump through the train between the corkscrew jumps.

Completed while going for the first hidden package.

Trailer Thrash - Jump through the trailer into the Parking Lot.

Head back down to the power station’s ground floor from the main entrance. After going down the ramp, with the large pipe to your right, turn left. Drive between the two white columns and turn right. Go off the small ramp ahead, into a container, and out the other end.

Do a Barrel Roll - Land a corkscrew jump.

Head back to where you initially started. On the left side of the dirt ramp you went off in the beginning is a container that has a ramp inside of it. This one is very picky. Start from the tire pile and drive towards the container. Let up off the gas as soon as your entire car is inside the container and hit the ramp directly in the middle. You’ll need to land on the dirt ramp after doing a barrel roll. Keep using rewinds and adjusting until you get it just right.

Big Jump to the Riverside - Hit the big jump from the power station to the wasteland.

Go back to the ground floor of the power station. With the large pipe to your left, back all the way up and go off the ramp ahead.

Onto/Off Jetty - Drift onto or off the jetty.

Drive over the bridge ahead and start drifting halfway across it.

Crossmembers - Drift under the large cross-frame girders.

Go across the other bridge and drift between the two central large girders to your right. You’ll need a good amount of speed for it to register.

At this point, you’ll unlock:

Power Station Main Door - Drift into or out of the power station through the main door.

Start from the inside of the power station with the large pipe to your left. Drive towards the entrance and start drifting to the right as soon as you reach the first red girder to your left.

Train Carriages - Drift between any of the train carriages.

Return to where you initially started and face the dirt ramp. Pan the camera right and drift through the furthest opening. (These looked like buildings but apparently they’re train carriages.)

Riverside Drifter - Drift up or down either of the slopes leading to the river.

Head to the curved slope nearby that leads to the river and drift down it.

Boat Stands - Drift under the brick boat stand.

Go back through the train carriage you just drifted through and turn left. You need to drift under this boat. Head back to the dirt jump you went off of and position yourself right at the start of it, facing the boat. Drive towards the boat and drift under it.

Buried Large Pipes - Drift through the buried large pipes.

Go back towards the two cranes that are across the bridges and near them is a large buried pipe. Approach it from a distance and slightly drift through it.

Truck Trailers - Drift under the truck trailers near the railway.

Go back towards the boat you just drifted under and follow the side of the power station. Drift under the first truck trailer you come across with a decent amount of speed.

Tire Piles - Do a double donut around any of the tire piles.

Return to where you initially started and donut around the tire pile, circling twice.

Huge Girders - Do a double donut around any of the huge girders.

Drive to the large girders to the left of the dirt ramp and donut around one of them, circling twice.

Mooring Posts - Do a double donut around any mooring post.

Drive across one of the bridges toward the cranes and donut around one of the mooring posts, circling twice.

Column - Donut around the column above ground level in the power station.

Go towards the main entrance of the power station and drive up the ramp to the right of the entrance. Go inside and drive around to the left. Donut around the white column you come across, circling twice.

Indoor Girders - Do a double donut around any of the girders inside the power station.

Go down to the ground floor and donut around any of the red girders, circling twice.

Big Cranes - Do a double donut around either of the big cranes.

Go back outside and drive towards where you initially started. Keep driving towards the large crane you see in front of you and smash through the fence. Donut around the bottom of the large crane, circling twice. This one is a bit more difficult than your usual donut. You kind of have to keep flicking the cn_LS to the left and right to keep the donut going.

That’s it for Zone 3! All that’s left are the cumulative missions that can be done in any of the three areas.

Any Zone
8 Missions

Air - Spend 3 minutes in the air.

Keep going off jumps to increase your time spent in the air. Probably the best way to grind this out is to keep going off the two large dirt ramps in the Parking Lot.

Drift - Spend 4 minutes drifting.

Any time you drift this will increase. The Parking Lot is a good place to grind this out because it’s a big open area. Just drive in large circles around the area, drifting as much as possible.

Speed - Spend 5 minutes above 80 mph.

Again, the best place to grind this out is the Parking Lot. Just hold down the gas and drive in large circles around the area.

Roll - Roll the car 30 times.

Just keep going off the two barrel roll ramps.

Spin - Complete 40 spins in any spin zone.

This can be done in one continuous spin. Find a spin zone and stay in the spin until you’ve reached 40.

Drive - Drive 50 miles.

This will most likely be the last mission you complete. Just like the drift and speed, drive in large circles around the Parking Lot to increase your miles driven.

Donut - Complete 60 donuts.

Same as spins, find a small donut zone and stay in the donut until you’ve reached 60.

Smash - Smash 500 compound objects.

Anything that you can break or push around when you run into will add to this. Cardboard boxes, wooden pallets, barrels, etc. Just keep smashing into anything you can. If you do circles around the perimeter of the Parking Lot, you can increase this pretty quickly. The objects respawn as you come back around to them.

After completing your final mission, you’ll unlock:
