The Warp Orb is an item seen in Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, Crash Team Racing, Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure, and the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy remaster of the third game.

Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped

In Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped, warp orbs are used by Crash and Coco in the Time Twister to travel through time to gather crystals, gems and relics.

Crash Team Racing

In Crash Team Racing, warp orbs are used as a race-exclusive weapon. It homes in on the racer in first place and deals damage to them. It may also hit other racers in the way. When juiced up, it targets all the players in front of the user. Unlike other weapons, the Warp Orb actually has its own map icon, being a 'W' in single player or the Warp Orb item box icon in multiplayer. It is much like the tornado top in the game's sequel, Crash Nitro Kart.

Crash Bandicoot: The Huge Adventure

In The Huge Adventure, they function similarly like they did in Warped. The only difference is that they don't take Crash to a different time period, but just to a different location in this game.

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

Warp Orbs reappear in the N. Sane Trilogy remaster of the third game where they reprise the role they had in the original version of the third game. However, A small Warp Orb also appears in the first and second games as well which Coco uses to travel through time.




  • Warp Orbs are probably based off the time traveling technique used in the Terminator film series, which was heavily referenced in some promotional martial for Warped.
