N. Brio's Beakers are weapons in Crash Team Racing. They are beakers containing toxic green liquid that cause whoever crashes into it to spin out of control. Other explosions, such as TNT or nitro explosions set it off too. The player can launch N. Brio's beakers forwards by holding the up directional button and pressing . Juiced up beakers are red and when crashed into, cause the player not only to spin out, but a thunder cloud to form over their head. They will be slowed down and weapons cannot be used until the effects wear off.
