A Takedown, in the context of the Burnout 3 Takedown video game by Critereon, is the act of forcing an opponent to crash their vehicle into an obstacle or roadside barrier by shunting or ramming them off course. A variation of this is known as a Psyche Out, which is the dastardly trick of threatening an opponent by driving closely behind them to the point that they inadvertently crash under the pressure. The attacker is rewarded with a points bonus, often with an extended and replenished turbo meter, while the attackee often has their turbo meter diminished as punishment for falling victim to the challenge.
