Deck Race is one of the "Level One" 2 player Shooting Battle levels in Sonic Adventure 2 and Sonic Adventure 2: Battle (the other being Pyramid Race). The Stage takes place in Weapons Bed, where the players have to race each other to the Goal Ring.


The Deck Race is a race between players down a course to the Goal Ring. The course is filled with obstacles that make it difficult to progress forward.

The difference between this race and other challenges for Shooting Battle is that the players do not have any Life Gauge, meaning they cannot be defeated when taking damage, and the only way to win is by reaching the Goal Ring before the other instead of fighting each other to the finish.


The players start out at the end of a short obstacle course in Weapons Bed. At the beginning, the players have to pass through rows of moving blocks which are moving from side to side and then up and down as well. The players soon must pass a swinging iron ball and face a G.U.N. robot. From there, there are several walls of Unbreakable Containers which the players must get over by smashing the cages and Wooden Containers supporting them, the first of which with a Rocket. Lastly, there is a field of spinning iron balls and backward-launching Springs that must be crossed before reaching the Goal Ring.
