Hood Ornaments in Mad Max are one part trophy and one part power up. You get hood ornaments from taking down enemy convoys that roam the wastelands. You can find these convoys by looking for a cloud of dust while you patrol the wastes. When you get close enough to the convoy it’s route will be marked with a red dashed line. The convoy doesn’t stray from this route; so use the information o setup ambushes.
Your target in the Convoy is the lead car. This car will usually be the most well armored of the convoy so you’ll have to peel off some layers with your harpoon before going in for the kill. It’s also a good idea to take out the other members of the convoy before confronting the leader because you can quickly become overwhelmed if they get on either side of you.
Once you’ve destroyed the lead vehicle it will drop its hood ornament. There are 13 to collect in all, each of which will provide your car with a boost to one of it’s abilities or stats.
You can have two ornaments equipped at one time; one on the back and one on the front.
