Detonator is another Zone variant and is playable only in single-player. You have to use your cannons to shoot down the mines that are dotted around the track. If you miss any mines, they reappear on the next lap, but if you can keep hitting targets, you can build up more points. Detonator mode also features different ships, which are smaller and more agile than the standard hover units".
