Burnin' Rubber 3 is the third game in the Burnin' Rubber series which was first released on July 7, 2009.


The player is supposed to dominate the world by completing many different challenges on five different continents; America, Asia, Africa, Europe, and Australia (also a country that has one mission).

The player starts in America with the Phaser GTI equipped with a Machine Gun, but once they complete more challenges, they can unlock more vehicles, such as the Rebel, Inferno 66, Panther V8, and more.

The player can unlock weapons such as the Mini Gun, Grenade Layer, Grenade Launcher, and others.

The player must beat all challenges in each continent, thereby unlocking cars and earning money. Each continent also features a boss battle, which unlocks a new vehicle that cannot be customized by the player. Once the player completes the boss battle on a continent throughout said level, they unlock the next continent.

Some challenges also unlock body kit parts for vehicles like the Phaser GTI, Giant, DX Turbo, and more. All body kit parts can be unlocked by doing daily challenges.

There are Daily Challenges every day. When the player beats a Daily Challenge, they unlock a body kit part for their cars. The daily challenges cannot be played once done for another twenty-four hours.


Since March 2017, this game was removed from the game portal Shockwave.com due to the deprecation of NPAPI plugins on modern browsers.


On March 19, 2018, Xform released the Burnin' Rubber 3 standalone for $2.99.
