As I am human, I’m sure there will be mistakes in this guide. If you happen to see any, e-mail me and tell me about them. You will be credited in the Credits section of the guide. Constructive criticism, questions, and suggestions are also kindly welcomed. Please, no Spam or anything like that. Please, no Spam or things like that. Again, my e-mail is emcain94@comcast.net. If you use this guide to find all the Precursor Orbs, I suggest starting from the very beginning and following it through to the end. They are ordered in the order that they can be obtained, so it might be confusing if you are missing a certain one. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 2.0 – The Basics ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 2.1 – Controls All controls are taken from the game manual.

You can earn different upgrades and different types of guns to use throughout the game. There are four types of guns that can be used. Scatter Gun – The Scatter Gun is rather slow, but a single shockwave can damage more than one enemy. Blaster Weapon – This gun has a laser pointer to show you where you will fire. Vulcan Fury – This gun has a laser pointer also, but it has rapid-fire capabilities, allowing you to hold down R1 to fire multiple shots. Peace Maker – Although it can only use 5 ammo (upgraded to 10 later), when the shot hits an enemy, it will spread to nearby enemies, damaging them as well. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 2.3 – Zoomers There are several vehicles you can use throughout the game, but the main ones you’ll be using are Zoomers. There are different types available throughout Haven City. If you want to use one, you can find one not occupied or you can hijack a flying one by standing underneath it and pressing Triangle. Single-Seat Zoomers – These vehicles can only hold one passenger, but they can go faster than two-seat Zoomers. However, they can take a less amount of damage before they explode than the two-seat ones. Two-Seat Zoomers – These vehicles can hold two passengers, but they are slower than the single-seat Zoomers. They can take more damage than a Single-Seat Zoomer. Krimzon Guard Zoomers – There are two types of these: the HellCat Cruisers and the single-seat Zoomers. They both can shoot so you don’t have to use your Morph-Gun, but the HellCat Cruisers are big and slow while the single-seat Zoomers are vulnerable. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 2.4 – Items These items will help you out throughout the game. Krimzon Guard Crates – Break these open to find the item inside. These can contain Health Packs, Dark Eco, and Ammunition. Health Packs – The gray boxes with green plus signs on them will return two bars to your health meter. Dark Eco – When Jak stores up enough Dark Eco, he can transform into Dark Jak. Ammunition – The ammunition provides ammo for the different modes of the Morph-Gun: Red – Scatter Gun, Yellow – Blaster Weapon, Blue – Vulcan Fury, Purple – Peace Maker Metal Head Skull Gems – These can be traded in to the Oracle to learn Dark Jak’s abilities. Precursor Orbs – Unlike the first game, the Precursor Orbs are rare. If you find enough, you can unlock extras in the Secrets menu. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 2.5 – Dark Jak This game introduces the ability to turn into Dark Jak. When the Dark Eco Meter is full, press L2 to transform. Dark Jak can attack faster and hit multiple enemies in the process. Also, if you trade in Metal Head Skull Gems to the Oracle, Jak will learn different abilities he can perform while Dark Jak: 25 Metal Head Skull Gems: Dark Bomb (X + Square) 200 Metal Head Skull Gems: Dark Blast (Square + X) 200 Metal Head Skull Gems: Dark Jak Invincibility (no buttons required) 100 Metal Head Skull Gems: Dark Giant (Press L2 while Dark Jak) Note: You can only obtain the ability if you’ve already gotten the one before it. For example, you can’t get Dark Blast until you have gotten Dark Bomb. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.0 – The Walkthrough Well, here it is! The main part of the guide. I hope it helps you out in any tight spot you may have. Enjoy! Just a note on how the walkthrough is set up: There will be numbers in parentheses scattered throughout the guide. These are meant to direct you to the Precursor Orb Locations box for that section. You do not have to find them to complete the game. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1 – Act 1 This section of the walkthrough covers the missions in Act 1. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.A – Escape from Fortress After the intro scene, you’ll be in control of Jak. (#1) From your starting point, go right and follow the path until your find a couple of stacked crates. Jump through the square archway and make your way through the darkness. Daxter will tell you how to roll. Jump through the next archway to set off an alarm. (#2) After you cross through, look to the left to find more stacked crates. Use them to get up to the next ledge. Daxter will tell you how to Double Jump. Press X and then X again while in the air to get to the high platform. Cross through the next archway. In this room, Daxter will tell you about Krimzon Guard Crates. Break the crates with either Circle or Square and collect the Dark Eco and the Health Pack. Jump across the series of platforms and wait for the moving one to get down to you. Ride it up and jump to the next ledge. Hold down L1 and jump to the high ledge. Follow the path until you meet the Krimzon Guard. Press Circle or Square to attack him. You will need to hit him two times to defeat him. Continue along onto the moving platform and to the next area after that. (#3) Break the crates for a Health Pack and Dark Eco. Next, you will come across a pole jutting out from the wall. Jump onto it to start swinging. Jump off of it when Jak is in the top part of his swing. Head onto the next moving platform. Rotate the camera to see an opening in the wall. Go in there and fight off the two Krimzon Guards. When you approach the large gap, Daxter tells you how to perform the Rolling Turbo Long Jump. (#4) Use the rolling jump to get across the next two gaps. In the next room, you will be shot at from below. Just keep moving to avoid getting hit. You can also hide behind one of the computers to avoid the fire. (#5) When you make it to the other side of the room, you will find a grate you can dive into to break. Stand on it and press X. While in the air, press Square to fall down to the next area. (#6) Follow the path and jump into the next room. There are two Krimzon Guards in this room. They have their backs to you, so attack them from behind (It’s also fun to listen to what they have to say! :P). Crash down through the grate and slide down the slide to find yourself in a room with some water in it. Make your way over to the dry land. (#7) (#8) Use the stacked boxes to climb up to the ledge on the right wall. Use another box to hop up onto the last ledge and jump out of the fortress. /---------------------------------------------------------------------\ |3.1.A.a – Fortress Precursor Orb Locations | | | |#1 – Start facing away from the chair where Jak was injected with | | Dark Eco. Walk to the right a bit and turn the camera to see an | | Orb sitting on top of a ledge. Use the stacked crates to get on | | the upper ledge to reach it. | |#2 – After you learn how to roll and go through the archway that sets| | off the alarm, turn the camera to the right to see the Orb up on| | a set of shelves. Double Jump or crouch and jump to reach it. | |#3 – In the room where you find the first Krimzon Guard Crates and | | Krimzon Guards. After you fight the second guard, you can find | | on top of the blinking computer right next to your location. | |#4 – When Daxter tells you how to perform the Rolling Turbo Long | | Jump, fall down the first gap to find the Orb. | |#5 – In the room where Krimzon Guards shoot at you from below, find | | the computer with enough room for you to jump behind. If you can| | find it, you will find the Orb. | |#6 – After you smash through the first crate, search behind the | | columns in the room below to find the Orb. | |#7 – In the room with the water in it, find the two Krimzon Guard | | Crates on the dry ground. Drop into the water right behind them | | to find the Orb. | |#8 – In the room with the water in it, make your way through the | | water and to the other side of the room. You should see an | | alcove high up in the wall. Use the stacked crates to get inside| | and grab the last Orb in this area. You probably will have to | | Double Jump and then spin while in the air to land in the | | alcove. | \---------------------------------------------------------------------/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.B – Protect Kor and Kid You will find yourself in Haven City. Follow the path until you meet Kor and the Kid. After the scene, Jak has to fight off some Krimzon Guards. When you defeat the first three, Jak will transform into Dark Jak. Keep attacking so as to not let the Krimzon Guards get a chance to attack. Afterwards, take Kor’s advice and follow the icon on the city map to find Torn. The icon is a picture of a sword. You can hijack a Zoomer to make the trip faster. I personally prefer the lower Hover Zone because you can avoid traffic. However, if you hit a Krimzon Guard, all of the guards will come after you. They will try to attack you and turrets will appear in different sections of the city. They shoot at you, so keep moving to avoid any attacks. If you don’t want to hit a guard, quickly press R2, fly over the guard, and then press R2 again to switch back to the lower Hover Zone. Find Torn and Tess and watch the scene. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.C – Retrieve Banner from Dead Town Follow the icon on the map to make your way to Dead Town. Head inside the chamber and enter Dead Town. You cannot get any Precursor Orbs yet, so don’t worry about them right now. First, walk across the path and take out the green enemy here. Jump across the brown water and fight the next two enemies. Do no touch the water, as it will damage Jak. Quickly jump across the two wooden platforms in the water. The new enemy here requires two hits to take down, and, after the first hit, it will shoot its tongue at you, so watch out. Cross the stone bridge and fight the two enemies here. Climb up the stone ledges to reach the next path. Follow the stone ledge and jump up the higher one to continue. Follow it to the lower ledge and fight the enemies here as well. Break the two Krimzon Guard Crates and continue along the path, taking out the next enemy. Go right and then left to find more of the critters walking around. Take them out and jump up the set of stone ledges. Quickly cross the bridge to avoid falling down into the muck below. The next series of ledges are a mix between stable ones and crumbling ones, so keep moving to avoid falling. You will also have to swing on the poles here to reach the next platform, so just keep climbing until you reach the top. Hop up the steps and walk to the banner for a scene. From your location, hop up the ledges to reach a stone path. Walk off the path and onto the ground below. Make your way all the way back to the beginning of Dead Town and enter and exit the chamber to find yourself back in Haven City. Follow the icon on the map to reach the Underground hideout. It is hidden behind the section of the wall with the green circle on it. Go inside and watch the scene to receive your next mission. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.D – Find Pumping Station Valve Leave the hideout and follow the icon on the map to the Pumping Station. Enter the chamber and exit to find yourself in the Pumping Station. In the first area, you will encounter your first Metal Heads. Defeat them and collect the Metal Head Skull Gems. (#9)(#10) Ride up the rising and falling platforms to the high ledge and defeat the two enemies. Jump over to the sandy ledge and then onto the big, hollow pipe. (#11) (#12)(#13) Jump to the next ledge to find three enemies and two Krimzon Guard Crates. There is a rotating pipe ahead and you don’t want to fall to the ground below. Wait until the pipe has finished rotating to jump onto it. If you are on it when it is going to rotate, jump straight up (listen for the little shaking sound to know when to jump). Defeat the Metal Head and head across the bridge, jumping over the moving electric fence. Fight off the enemies and ride the moving platforms up so you can jump across to the next ledge. Jump to the next sandy ledge to find two enemies and a Metal Head. Defeat them all and go across the bridge with two electric fences. Double Jump to make it over them. Defeat the enemies and continue along to face more enemies. Jump up the metal ledges and quickly cross the next rotating pipe. Jump to the grassy/sandy ledge and then on to the next ledge. You will come across a slanted bridge. Climb up it, follow the path while defeating the two Metal Heads, and watch the scene when you find the valve. Walk back across the beach and leave the Pumping Station to go back to Haven City. (#14) (#15) /---------------------------------------------------------------------\ |3.1.D.a – Pumping Station Precursor Orb Locations | | | |The numbers are continued from the previous set of Precursor Orbs. | | | |#9 – In the area where you first encounter Metal Heads, look for the | | large pipe dripping water. Squeeze into the area to the left of | | it to find the Orb. | |#10 – In the area where you first encounter Metal Heads, go all the | | way to the left on the sandy ground to find in the Orb in the | | water. | |#11 – After you ride the first rising platform and jump onto the | | sandy ledge, jump down into the hollow pipe to find the Orb. | |#12 – Below the pipe mentioned above, follow the sandy beach to the | | right of the cliff. Stay to the right of the cliff and keep | | along the edge to find the Orb. | |#13 – From the location of the Orb above, swim to the closest island | | with the windmill. Climb the rocks to find the Orb. | |#14 – After you find the valve, follow the same path you did to reach| | it until your reach the slanted bridge. Continue until you come| | face-to-face with the two Metal Heads right after it. Fall to | | metal platforms to the right of the sandy ledges. Fight off the| | two Metal Heads and jump down to the left of the metal | | platforms into the closed-in pool with some rocks. The Orb is | | there. | |#15 – From the location of the last Orb, jump out of the pool and | | onto the beach with all the Metal Heads and other enemies. | | Fight them all off and run across the rest of the beach area to| | find a metal ramp. Walk up it and follow the path to the next | | two Metal Heads. After you defeat them, jump down into the | | water to the left of the bridge you’re on (facing the exit to | | Haven City) to find the last Precursor Orb in the Pumping | | Station. | \---------------------------------------------------------------------/ After you finish this mission, the first Underground Mission in Haven City becomes available. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for details. (#16, #17, #18) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.E – Go to the Oracle For this mission, simply follow the icon on the map to the building with the Oracle inside. Approach it and watch the scene. Afterwards, leave the building and follow the map back to Torn. Watch the scene upon your arrival to receive your next mission. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.F – Blow up Ammo at Fortress Follow the red icon on the map and enter the Fortress. Break the Krimzon Guard Crates next to the tank and walk between the two blue poles. This will activate the tank. You can’t stand still, so keep moving to stay out of the red crosshairs. Also, stay away from the tank to avoid damage. In the first area, you must quickly cross the platforms to avoid the shots fired by the tank. When the tank breaks through the glass, it becomes a bit hard to see. Keep moving forward, avoiding any gaps as well as the red lasers projected by the weapons. If you step into one, they will shoot at you. Once you reach the end of the room, head left and jump on top of the boxes. Use the pole to swing into the next room. The tank will break through and continue to try to shoot you. Jump onto the rotating platform and then into the middle to break the glass. Do this with the next glass to turn off the electric fence. Go into the next room the fence was blocking. Grab the Krimzon Guard Crate items and make your way through the room, jumping across the floating platforms and taking out any Krimzon Guard that gets in your way. Towards the end of the room, you will encounter some spikes. Time your jumps according to the spikes to make it safely across and take out the rest of the guards. Break through the grate (X + square). Ride across the conveyer belt, jump across the moving platforms, climb the crates, and ride across the last conveyer belt to find another room. Enter and watch the scene. You’ll receive the Red Security Pass and learn a bit about the Baron’s scheme. For this part of the mission, you have to stand beside the round things jutting out from the cylinder in the center of the room. This will bring the tank’s crosshairs onto them so that they will get destroyed. There are four of these on the cylinder. After all four are blown up, run over to the exit of the fortress before your ten seconds are up. Just as you exit, the place blows up. Good job! Follow the map back to the hideout and approach Torn to receive your next mission. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.G – Make delivery to Hip Hog Saloon Exit the hideout and hop on the Zoomer in the beam of light. The bar at the top represents your progress to the Hip Hog Saloon, not the damage your Zoomer has taken (like I thought at first...). Follow the wine glass icon on the map. No matter which Hover Zone you fly in, the guards will eventually become suspicious and start to chase you. Keep moving! Continue to follow the rather confusing pathways. On your way, you will encounter two Krimzon Guard roadblocks. Stay in the lower Hover Zone and keep moving to avoid taking too much let alone any damage. Continue into the Port. I suggest driving over the water to avoid a lot of Krimzon Guard vehicles and guards while you make your way to the saloon. If you are flying above the water, you have to switch to the upper Hover Zone to reach the Saloon. When you are near the entrance, Jak will automatically jump off, so watch the scene inside to meet Krew and Sig and get the Scatter Gun. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.H – Beat Scatter Gun Course You know the drill. Head on over to the icon and enter. Walk towards the crates to get a short tutorial on how to use the Scatter Gun. When prompted, press R1 to fire the Scatter Gun. Put the gun away by pressing the up arrow on the D-pad. Take it back out with the same button or by shooting again with R1. Collect the ammo to get the capacity of the gun back up to 50. Then, approach the door and press X to start the Scatter Gun Course. When you enter, you will hear Sig tell you about the different targets. There are two score-giving targets: the blue robots and the gold robots. Shoot the gold ones for extra points. Also, the large, blue robots that look like they have horns coming from their heads take two hits to kill. DO NOT SHOOT THE CIVILIANS, as points will be deducted from your score. You could even physically attack the targets by punching them or spinning them. You still get points! Be sure to complete the course with a grand score of at least 3000 points. If you score 8000 points or more, you can get 3 Precursor Orbs. However, in the unlikely event that you score more than 10,000 points, you can get another 3 and likewise if you score more than 12,000. (#19-#27) (See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for more details.) Note that the faster you hit a target, the more points you’ll be awarded and if you hit certain targets, the gold ones will appear. Completing this mission will activate another kiosk in town, allowing you to earn more Precursor Orbs. (#28, #29, #30) See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for more details on this challenge. After you have finished the course and anything else you may have wanted to do, follow the icon back to the saloon and watch the scene for your next mission. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.I – Protect Sig at Pumping Station Grab a Zoomer and drive all the way back to the Pumping Station. Enter to find Sig already waiting for you. Take out the first group of enemies on the beach area. Follow Sig up the rising platforms and finish off the next two. He will charge the Peacemaker. When he’s done, he will blast a way through the large metal... thing blocking the way. For the next two Metal Heads, Sig will stay behind. Watch out for their red electricity beams. Either shoot them or just physically attack them. Go ahead of Sig and lower the bridge by just jumping on it. Fight off any of the enemies that Sig didn’t take out yet. Once you cross the bridge, you will find the first Metal Head for Sig to kill. He will charge up the Peacemaker. Your job is to keep the enemies back until he is finished. If you shoot the enemies just as they start to jump, they should fall back, making you only use one shot. Continue across the next beach area, fighting off any enemies. Do not let them attack Sig too much, or else his health will run out and you will have to start the mission all over again. At the end of this area, you will have to protect Sig once again as he charges up the Peacemaker for another Metal Head. Keep the enemies back and follow Sig when he’s done. Sig will stay behind to fight off some enemies. Go forward along the path and lower the next bridge. Help him out if it is needed, and press forward. A short walk will bring you to Sig’s next target. Protect him again so he can shoot this one down. Follow him across the platforms and to the next beach area. Fight off the enemies here and continue forward to reach the fourth target. Follow Sig again to find some more Metal Heads. Halfway through this wave, the Peacemaker will jam, leaving you to defend yourself and Sig. After this little battle, Sig will lead the way to the final target. Protect him once more to finish the mission. If you did not grab all of the Orbs during the first visit, see section 3.1.A.a for their locations. Also, after you complete this mission, the next Underground Challenge becomes available. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for more details. (#31, #32, #33) Once you are ready, leave the Pumping Station. If you have 25 Metal Head Skull Gems or more, go to the Oracle. If not, (you must’ve missed some or not collected them) go back to Krew. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.J – Go to the Oracle After completing the Protect Sig at Pumping Station mission, you should have at least 25 Metal Head Skull Gems. Follow the Haven City Map to the Oracle. Once inside, a scene will play. Afterwards, use X + Square to activate Dark Bomb. When you are finished, head to the Hip Hog Saloon. Go inside to receive your mission. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.K – Destroy Turrets in Sewers Head through the Industrial District and enter the Sewers. Ride the elevator down. You can’t grab the Orb in the Sewers just yet, so take out the three enemies in the first area. Step on the light on the floor to turn on the lights for the next room. Walk across the side of the room to find out you’re being shot at. To take out the turret, keep jumping while moving in a zigzag pattern. When you are close enough, shoot the turret to destroy it. In the next room, do not fall in the water, as a critter inside will attack you. Jump across the platforms to the wall with the metal fences. When you reach the second one, a Metal Head will come from nowhere. Immediately spin attack it and collect the skull gem. Hop across the next three platforms and take out the four enemies waiting for you. Step on the red light and fight the three Metal Heads. Even more enemies await you, so keep moving forward and fight them. Go up the ramp to find the second turret is already shooting at you. So don’t fall off the path leading to it, double jump just as it is about to shoot at you. You can tell by the mechanical noise it makes just before it fires. After destroying the second turret, go back across the path and then into the dark room. The metal flooring will fall. Before you go any further, turn around and break open the Krimzon Guard Crates. Continue forward and turn on the light to find a bunch of Metal Heads waiting to attack. You can shoot them down, fight them physically, or, if you have it and the eco to use it, the Dark Bomb technique as Dark Jak. Use the mossy ledges in the corner of the room to climb to the next area. Follow the path to find another turret. Use the same method with this turret as the second one. Jump to the platforms just as it is about to fire. Shoot it when you are close enough. One more left! Continue along the path and turn on the light. Already, you can hear the final turret. However, when you reach the three Metal Heads, the lights turn off. Use the glow of the Skull Gems to judge where the Metal Heads are and defeat them. When you find the turret, jump across the platforms just before the turret fires. Get close enough to shoot it. Hop up into the next room and fight off the enemies. Before you leave, two Metal Heads will drop from the ceiling. Defeat them and drop down into the water below. Take the path with the circle on the floor to find the exit. Ride the elevator back up and enter Haven City. Head on back to see Krew to get your next mission. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.L – Find the Blaster Mod This mission is simple. Just follow the icon to the Gun Course. Break open the crate in the beam of light to get the Blaster Weapon. Press the up arrow on the D-pad to switch to the Scatter Gun. Switch back to the Blaster. Spin the first target and immediately shoot to hit the second one. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.M – Beat Blaster Course This mission involves another gun course. Press X by the door closest to the Krimzon Guard Crates to start the game. The course has the same targets as the Scatter Gun Course, but this time around, you have a laser pointer to aim at the robots. Shoot all the targets as fast as you can to get a higher score. The targets at the end will move quickly, so be ready to shoot the gun as soon as they appear. As with the Scatter Gun Course, this mission will award Precursor Orbs if you can beat the top three scores. 3rd place is 9000 points, 2nd is 11000, and 1st is 13000. The score for each place is 3 Precursor Orbs (#34-#42). Completing this mission will unlock the next Underground Challenge. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for more details. Also, another Underground Challenge becomes available. Look in the same section for details. (#43, #44, #45) Whenever you’re ready, you can either talk to Krew or Torn. This guide will have Krew’s mission come first, so head over to the Hip Hog Saloon and watch the scene to get your next mission and the Green Security Pass. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.N – Beat Time to Race Garage Step outside and hop on the Zoomer parked on the street. Follow the icon to the Race Garage. For the Port section of the city, I suggest flying in the lower Hover Zone just above the water until you have to switch to get back on the road. Just watch out for any of the stationary boats floating in the water. Once you are back on the road, stay in the lower Hover Zone to avoid any Zoomers that might get in your way. Just keep in the Hover Zone for the rest of the trip unless you have to avoid an obstacle that will destroy your Zoomer. If you hit a Krimzon Guard, just ignore the alarms and keep going. When you reach the garage, drive into the beam of light and watch the scene. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.O – Win JET-Board Stadium Challenge Even though this mission isn’t next on the Missions list in the menu, it’s right there so you might as well complete it. Follow the icon and go inside. Head down the ramp and grab the Jetboard. Press R2 to get on it and listen to whatever the mechanic has to say. She’ll give you a quick tutorial on the different things you can pull off with the Jetboard. Ride down the ramp and into the judge in the beam of light to start the game. I suggest jumping in the air and pulling off a bunch of moves by switching between the two buttons used for tricks (R1 and L1). Keep pulling off tricks to get at least 15,000 points. As it is with the gun courses, if you beat the three scores, you can win a total of 9 Orbs. (#46-54) First place is 50,000 points, second place is 90,000, and first is 120,000. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for details on this game. After you’ve finished this mission, the next Underground Challenge becomes available. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for more details. (#55, #56, #57) Whenever you’re finished, return to the garage. Put back the Jetboard and go back to see the mechanic. She will tell you a way that might get you into the Baron’s Palace. Before we do that though, go to the saloon and the best scene of the game (in my opinion) will play. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.P – Collect Money for Krew Head on outside to find a Zoomer waiting for you. Hop on and immediately drive towards the first green dot. Almost immediately, the Krimzon Guard alert will start. Ignore them and keep moving. You can’t stop for more than a few seconds or else you’ll come under fire. Just keep an eye on the green dots on the map and collect each moneybag when it appears. The course will actually take you back to the saloon, so go inside and talk to Krew. The Scatter Gun gets a rate of fire increase and Krew will not give you a mission, so it’s time to see Torn. Follow the icon on the map to the Underground hideout. Enter and watch the scene. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.Q – Rescue Vin at Strip Mine Follow the icon into the Industrial Section of Haven City. It is located on the upper path, so you’ll have to use a ramp to get there. Once inside, use the Warp Gate. Walk forward to be greeted by some Metal Heads. Defeat them and continue to find a flying one. Shoot it with the Blaster and collect the Skull Gem. Fight off any more Metal Heads that may come to stop you. Ride the conveyer belt to the fork. Take the right path and follow it, killing any Metal Head in your path. Ride the conveyer belt ramp to the rocky ledge and take out the Metal Head. (#58) Continue up the next one and fight the Metal Heads here. Hop onto one of the moving platforms. (#59) Ride them to other side, shooting down any Metal Heads that come to bother you. Jump off and head towards the closed door to meet Vin. Watch the scene and you will be back in Haven City. If you want to get the remaining Orbs, jump back inside the Warp Gate before approaching Vin. (#60) Head back to Haven City and walk over to Vin to watch a scene. /---------------------------------------------------------------------\ |3.1.Q.a – Strip Mine Precursor Orb Locations (Part 1) | | | |#58 – After you ride the first conveyer belt ramp to the rocky ledge,| | you should see the Orb next to a post. | |#59 – While riding the moving platforms, jump down in between the two| | posts supporting them. Go to the one closer to the entrance to | | the level. The Orb is behind it. | |#60 – Go all the way back to the room where you found Vin. The boxes | | that were originally here are now gone, so you can head | | forward towards the glowing blue fire. Take the first right you| | can and search the edge of the platform for the Orb. | |As of right now, that’s all the Orbs that you can get. See the Strip | |Mine Precursor Orb Locations (Part 2) section on the info for the | |remaining 4 Orbs. | \---------------------------------------------------------------------/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.R – Destroy Eggs at Drill Platform Head through the Warp Gate again to find yourself in a different area. Before you head down to the lowered platform, pull out your Scatter Gun. Hop down and shoot all the Metal Heads. Go to the lower platform and shoot the ones here as well. In the metal area, stand on the square in the middle to ride to the top. Use the turret. Hold down R1 to continuously fire. Watch out for the flying Metal Heads (indicated by the arrows around the circle. Destroy the Metal Head Eggs (the groups of yellow circles with a black outlining scattered around the area). There are 58 in total to destroy with this particular turret. When you are finished, press Triangle to exit. Ride the elevator down to the bottom level. (#61) Climb up the ledges. (#62) Turn right and use the escalator ramp. Here, you will find a new kind of Metal Head. Wait until it lowers its shield. Jump over the projectiles it shoots at you and shoot it with your Blaster. Switch to the Scatter Gun and stand by the entry to the next area. Shoot the Metal Heads that come close. When no more are near, enter the area and shoot any remaining Metal Heads. To the left of the entrance is a pile of eco barrels. (#63) Climb up onto them and then jump over to the metal platform. Wait until the fire is out to cross. Follow the path and jump to the next set of metal platforms. There is another fire here, so be careful. Spin the red lever to bring up a platform. Quickly use it to get to the next path. Be grateful the escalator is going the wrong way as spinning Metal Heads come from nowhere to attack. Shoot them and go down the ramp. Before you hit the next lever, kill all the Metal Heads with your Blaster. Jump over and cross the metal bridge. Be careful of the flying Metal Head as it will shoot at you. Kill the Metal Heads up ahead and ride the next elevator to the top. Immediately, shoot the Metal Heads waiting for you. Use the turret to take out 43 Metal Head Eggs. Ride the elevator to the lowest level with your Scatter Gun at the ready. Blast the Metal Heads. Instantly shoot once you reach the bottom as they will be crowded around the lift. Head forward to the eco barrels. (#64) Jump on them and get ready to dodge some projectiles from the shielded Metal Head. Defeat it and exit the small room. Use the platforms and pipes to get across. Pull out your Scatter Gun and move forward to find more spinning Metal Heads. Shoot them and continue to the final lift. Ride it up and use the turret to destroy 49 Metal Head Eggs. Use the elevator and go down to the bottom level. (#65) Shoot the spinny guys and climb up the makeshift bridge to the Warp Gate. Use it to get to the Power Station. Torn gives you your next mission, so head to the Underground hideout. /---------------------------------------------------------------------\ |3.1.R.a – Drill Platform Precursor Orb Locations | | | |#61 – After destroying the first grouping of Metal Head Eggs, ride | | the elevator down to the bottom level. Turn the camera and the | | Orb is right there. | |#62 – After riding the first elevator down, jump up to the highest | | ledge nearby. The Orb is behind some Krimzon Guard Crates in a | | corner. | |#63 – Next to the pile of eco barrels in the area where a bunch of | | the spinning Metal Heads are, is a gap between the fiery grill | | and the barrels themselves. Go in there and look around the | | pipe to find the Orb. | |#64 – This one is behind the set of eco barrels after the second | | elevator. | |#65 – The Orb is right next to the third left on the bottom level. | \---------------------------------------------------------------------/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.S – Find Pumping Station Patrol Grab a Zoomer and head to the Pumping Station. Fight the new type of Metal Head and use the rising platforms to get to the metal platform. Go right (as if you were going to the valve). Follow the path up until the point where you reach the slanted metal bridge. Use the three moving platforms to jump up to the ledge above. Keep along the path until the scene occurs. Pull out either your Blaster or Scatter Gun and fight off all the Metal Heads. Don’t worry about using up all your ammo as you can always get more. Ashelin can handle herself, so just worry about keeping yourself from taking too much damage. After the scene, go back to the entrance of the level and into Haven City. Whenever you’re ready, head for the lightning bolt icon on the map. It is covered by the brown tent icon, so follow that until you reach the Industrial section of the city. Go inside the room and watch the scene. After you’ve finished this mission, the next Underground mission becomes available. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for more info. (#66, #67, #68) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.T – Turn on 5 Power Switches Hop on a Zoomer and follow one of the green dots on the map. When you approach one, a turret will shoot up from the ground. Spin, punch, or shoot it to destroy it. After it is gone, step on the red button to activate the power switch Do the same thing with the four remaining. If you approach one on foot, jump just before the turret fires to avoid damage. Now that that’s taken care of, before you ride up to the palace, follow the brown tent icon to Onin’s tent. The eastern bazaar section does not allow you to ride a Zoomer, so once you reach it, make the rest of the trip on foot to see Onin. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.U – Find Shard in Mountain Temple Leave the bazaar area, grab a Zoomer, and follow the gray mountain icon on the map to reach your destination. Use the Warp Gate and go straight. Turn right and shoot the platform with your Blaster. Quickly use it to get across to the other side. Ride the elevator down. Fight off the Metal Heads and enter the large structure. Take the path to the right (the one with the two large pipes). Fight some more Metal Heads and continue forward. When you reach the area with a bunch of ledges, a swarm of Metal Heads will come and attack you. Fight them off while heading for the top of the ledges. After that, you will come across a Metal Head with a shield. Jump over its projectiles and shoot it with the Blaster until it is dead. (#69) Climb up to the top ledge behind the defeated Metal Head. (#70) Hop across the Popsicle stick-like platform and go to the lowest grassy ledge. Here is the formation in which you should hit the series of boxes floating above the dark eco pool: Finish Here _ _ _ _|_| |_|_|_|_| |_| |_| _|_| |_|_| |_| _|_| _ _|_|_| |_|_|_| |_|_ |_|_| |_|_ |_|_| |_| |_|_ _ _ |_|_|_|_| |_| Start Here Hop up the ledges and shoot the platform. Use it to jump to the circular area. To fight the next type of Metal Head, run around, dodging the monster. Wait until it skids to a halt. Pull out your Blaster and shoot it in the stomach multiple times whenever it rears up. Repeat this process until the creature falls. The gate ahead will open. Jump across the platform and into the structure. You will receive the shard. Go back out to the circular platform. Walk around it until you see a tree that is almost as tall as the platform. (#71) (#72) (#73) Drop down to the lowest grassy area with some Metal Heads. Enter the same structure you were in when you first arrived. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.V – Find Gear in Mountain Temple The Gear is located in the Mountain Temple, like the shard in the above mission. See the above mission on how to get to the Mountain Temple and into the large structure with four different exits (one leads to a bottomless pit). Take the exit with the Krimzon Guard Crates on the stairs. The platforms here work the same way as the previous one. Shoot them to turn them right side up. To defeat the bull-like Metal Head, dodge it until it skids to a halt. Shoot at its stomach repeatedly when it rears up. Repeat this process until it has been defeated. Step on the circle that rises after beating the Metal Head. Use the platforms that spring out of the cliff to climb up to the grassy ledge. (#74) Continue along the path to find some Metal Heads. Defeat them and go forward. You will find a large hill with a bunch of boulders rolling down it. Dodge the boulders and carefully make your way up the side of the mountain. Head forward to find more platforms that you have to shoot with the Blaster. Head across these and follow the path up to the gear. Walk around the edge of the circular platform to find another platform that will take you down to the main structure. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.W – Find Lens in Mountain Temple See section 3.1.U on how to get to the Mountain Temple and to the elevator after the first platform you have to shoot with the Blaster. When you reach the area with the two Metal Heads, instead of going straight into the structure, make a left to find a shielded Metal Head. Dodge the projectiles and shoot it while its shield is down. Head up the ledge and fight off the few Metal Heads you meet here. Cross the waterfall and drop down to meet another bull-like Metal Head. To defeat it, dodge it until it skids to a halt. Shoot at its stomach repeatedly whenever it rears up. Repeat this process until the creature falls. Press X + Square right above the platform to press the button. It will bring out a platform. Use it to continue to find another shield Metal Head. Defeat it and walk across the platform with the three circles. The path should break and you can use the moving platforms to get up to the next area. Shoot the platform up ahead and cross the Popsicle stick-like platform. Fight off the Metal Heads that jump up from the water. (#75) Cross the pool and kill the Metal Heads. Beat the shielded Metal Head and press X + Square to push the circular button. Head on up to the top using the platforms. Fight off all the Metal Heads that jump out at you. (#76) Cross the water and head into the structure to get the lens. After getting it, Pecker will talk to you. Exit the structure and search for the platform nearby the water. It is on the right side (right side – stand outside the structure and face it). Ride it down. Leave the same way you entered and ride the elevator up. Shoot the platform, jump across, and use the Warp Gate. Exit into Haven City. If you’ve gotten 200 Metal Head Skull Gems, go to the Oracle in the water slums section of the city. If not, follow the icon to the palace. After you complete these three missions, the next Underground Challenge becomes available. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for more details. (#77, #78, #79) /---------------------------------------------------------------------\ |3.1.U-W.a – Mountain Temple Precursor Orb Locations (Part 1) | | | |#69 – When you go for the shard, it is right behind the first shield | | Metal Head you fight. | |#70 – After defeating the shield Metal Head mentioned above, jump up | | the ledges behind where it stood. Instead of jumping across the| | sliding Popsicle stick-like platform, go to the right and head | | to the second tree. Jump to the side of the tree. Don’t worry | | as there is a little section you can stand on. The Orb is on | | this little section of grass. | |#71 – When you find the tree next to the circular platform before the| | structure with the shard inside, drop down to the ledge below, | | keeping close to the platform wall. Hug the side of the | | platform and walk over to the ledge with the next tree. The Orb| | is behind the third tree you see. | |#72 – Right next to #71. | |#73 – Right next to #72. | |#74 – After defeating the bull-like Metal Head on the way to get the | | Gear, step on the circular button that rises. Climb up the | | platforms that spring from the side of the cliff. The Orb is by| | the Krimzon Guard Crates next to the tree. | |#75 – On the way to the lens, you should find a Popsicle stick-like | | platform. After crossing it, you will come across a pool of | | water with two platforms in it. The Orb is in between them. | |#76 – When you defeat the shielded Metal Head after #75’s location, | | press X + Square to press the button. Climb up the platforms | | and fight off the Metal Heads. The Orb is in the water on the | | left side. | |As of right now, that’s all the Orbs you can get. See the Mountain | |Temple Precursor Orb Locations (Part 2) section for details on how to| |get the remaining nine Orbs. | \---------------------------------------------------------------------/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.X – Go to the Oracle Approach the Oracle for the scene and you will receive Dark Blast. Activate it by pressing Square + X as Dark Jak. Whenever you’re finished, head to the palace by following the icon on the Haven City map. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.Y – Ride Elevator up to Palace Sure, this mission was available ever since you turned on the five power switches, but I just wanted to get the artifact hunt out of the way. :P Enter the palace and ride the fast elevator up to the top. (#80) Head outside to see the defenses. Jump down to the bottom. Wait until the electricity prong has passed before crossing. Do the same thing with the second one. Do not step on the red flooring up ahead. Instead, you should see some platforms on your left hand side. Jump down there onto the first one. Quickly jump off as it will fall. Use the platforms and the poles to get back onto the main path. There is more red flooring up ahead, so take the path on the right this time. When you get back on the main path, dodge the shots the turret fires and destroy it with one of your guns. (#81) Hop across the spinning things when they are on a side without spikes. Almost immediately, another turret will start shooting at you. Destroy it. As you cannot walk across the rounded part, take the path on the right. You will come across a platform that falls when you touch it. Time your jump so that you will avoid falling and getting hit by the electricity. Follow the path down and grab the Precursor Orb sitting above the falling platforms. (#82) Climb back up to the main path and get across the spiked platform. Jump down to the path on the right. Get back up to the main path to find two turrets shooting at you. Jump over the fire and hop behind the spinning turrets to stop them. Use the brown platforms to reach your destination. Walk forward, up the ramp, and towards the glass roof to watch a scene. Go over to the side with three ramps. Head forward into this area and then down the next set of ramps to find Baron Praxis. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.Z – Defeat Baron at Palace When the battle starts, dodge the Barons shots. You can shoot at him with the Blaster, but it is a bit dangerous. Wait until the Baron goes to recharge his power to shoot. After you clear out his first health bar, it will turn yellow. He will begin spinning around, so stay away from him. Follow the Baron into the next section to start the next part of the battle. This time around, he will launch five pairs of missiles at you. Stay out of the crosshairs on the ground and you should be fine. After the fifth pair of crosshairs appear, you can shoot at the Baron. He will fire two rounds before has to recharge. Shoot at him then as well. When you finish off his second health bar, it will turn red and he will start spinning again. Mind your distance and follow him to the last section. The Baron will now fire tornadoes at you, so move away from him to dodge them. He will then head towards you. Roll out of the way and then shoot at him from behind. Keep this up until you have depleted the rest of his health. It’s time to get out of here! Head up to the top level and pass through the two blue poles. Follow the path to the door and ride the elevator down. (#83) Exit into Haven City and go talk to Torn at the Underground Hideout. /---------------------------------------------------------------------\ |3.1.Y-Z.a – Palace Precursor Orb Locations | | | |#80 – After riding the elevator up, check the room. The Orb is above | | a pipe. | |#81 – After you destroy the first turret, turn around and head back | | towards the red flooring you just passed up. The Orb is right | | in front of it. | |#82 – When you reach the rounded part with the spinning... thing with| | electricity, follow the path on the right. The Orb is above a | | falling platform. | |#83 – After you defeat the Baron, go up to the top level and pass | | through the two blue poles. The Orb is next to the doorway | | leading to the elevator. | \---------------------------------------------------------------------/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.AA – Shuttle Underground Fighters Head outside of the Underground Hideout and hop in the double-seater Zoomer provided. Drive to the first green dot. Press Square to brake when you reach the fighter. Wait until he hops inside the vehicle. Drive him to the next green dot. When you reach it, brake again and let the fighter out. Repeat this process for the remaining three people. Remember, if your Zoomer gets too beat up, you could always grab another one but it has to be a double-seater to complete this mission. Don’t let any of the fighters die or else you’ll have to start all over again. Once you’ve finished the mission, go back to the hideout and talk to Torn for your next mission. After the scene, you will receive the Vulcan Fury gun. Follow the icon and enter Dead Town. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.1.BB – Protect Site in Dead Town Like the first mission here, you can’t get the Precursor Orbs here yet, so don’t worry about them. As you can see, Dead Town has been infested with Metal Heads. Clear out the first ones and jump across to the next one. Use the wooden platforms to find two more to fight. Defeat them and jump across the platforms to come across another one. Jump down and shoot at the one shooting back at you. Kill it along with the other one down here. Hop across the platforms to reach the next swarm of Metal Heads. Jump up onto the rocky path and continue to the wooden platforms. Jump up there and fight off all the Metal Heads blocking the entrance. To take out the one that shoots at you, head behind a pillar and shoot at him with one of your guns with a laser pointer. Go through the entryway and kill the Metal Heads. Stay behind the corner and shoot at the next Metal Head. There is another Metal Head waiting for you on a ledge, so stay behind a corner and shoot at this one as well. Continue up the ledges and take out the next group of Metal Heads. Go outside to the next path and take out the Metal Heads. Follow the path and defeat the two Metal Heads that shoot at you. Walk forward towards the open area and watch the scene. For a quick way back to the beginning of the level, walk forward and drop off the ledge. Before you hit the bottom, and press Circle just before you hit the bottom. You’ll find yourself close to the entrance to Dead Town. Use the exit and go out to Haven City. Make your way back to the Underground Hideout to finally meet the Shadow. Surprise! ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2 – Act 2 After many long, grueling missions, the second act finally starts! ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.A – Catch Scouts in Haven Forest Drive a Zoomer to the icon. To kick off the second act, you’ll get the Jetboard at your disposal. Seeing as this is what you needed to get the remaining Orbs in the Mountain Temple, here is the list of the remaining ones to get. /---------------------------------------------------------------------\ |3.2.A.a – Mountain Temple Precursor Orb Locations (Part 2) | | | |#84 – Enter the large structure in the beginning of the level. Take | | the right exit and go all the way down to the dark eco pool | | where you had to figure out the box puzzle. Stand on the grassy| | ledge with the button. Hop on your Jetboard and go to the left | | to find the Orb. | |#85 – A few steps away from #84. | |#86 – A few steps away from #85. | |#87 – From #86’s location, go down the ramp and follow the path until| | you find another area of dark eco. Get on the Jetboard and ride| | across the river to the other side where there is a grassy | | area. The Orb is right there. | |#88 – Use the Jetboard to ride up the ramp behind #87. The Orb is up | | here. | |#89 – Follow the path from #88. Do not fall down into the area where | | you would fight the shield Metal Head. Instead, go through the | | small gap in front of you. The Orb is straight ahead. | |#90 – A few steps away from #89. | |#91 – A few steps away from #90. | |#92 – Go back to the dark eco river. After you crossed the bridge you| | made with the boxes, get out your Jetboard and jump onto the | | dark eco river just below the moving platform. See the big | | light? There is a small opening between the wall it is on and | | the wall next to it. Go inside here to find the Orb. That does | | it for the Mountain Temple Precursor Orbs! | \---------------------------------------------------------------------/ Now that that’s taken care of, go back to the Warp Gate at the entrance. Ride the platform basking in the beam of light down to the Haven Forest. Chase it around the forest until you can catch it. It will drop some dark eco and a Metal Head Skull Gem. Check the map of the forest in the menu for the locations of the other Metal Heads. Catch them all to finish the mission. Before you listen to Samos and go back to the hideout, find the Precursor Orbs if you want. /---------------------------------------------------------------------\ |3.2.A.b – Haven Forest Precursor Orb Locations | | | |#93 – In the area you wind up in whenever you first enter the forest,| | there is a river flowing. Check the end with the waterfall to | | find the Orb. | |#94 – Follow the river to the next area of the forest. Keep going | | straight. You should see the Orb under the water. | |#95 – Head to the middle of the pool to find the Orb underwater. | |#96 – According to your map of the forest in the menu, this Orb is in| | the southeastern section of the large lake. | |#97 – According to your map of the forest in the menu, this Orb is in| | the southern part of the pool, just below the dark green shape.| |#98 – According to your map of the forest in the menu, this Orb is in| | the southeastern corner of the pool, in the little alcove. | |#99 – According to your map of the forest in the menu, this Orb is in| | the eastern section of the pool, just above the two gray shapes| | on the right-hand side in the middle. | |#100 – According to your map of the forest in the menu, this Orb is | | in between the green area in the top right and the smaller | | green oval below it. | |#101 – According to your map of the forest in the menu, this Orb is | | in the green area below the brown rectangle on the very bottom| | of the map. | \---------------------------------------------------------------------/ Whenever you’re finished here, leave the forest and go to the Bazaar to see what’s up. Note that after you finish this mission, the next two Underground Challenges become available. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for more details. (#102, #103, #104, #105, #106, #107) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.B – Intercept Tanker When you arrive, Ashelin explains what’s going on. Then, a tanker full of Metal Heads will disrupt everything. Shoot them, kick them, punch them, use a Dark Jak power on them, or whatever. Just make sure to stay alive and make sure that Ashelin does as well. Whenever you’re finished, go to the green dot on the map. When you arrive, you should notice that the green dot is actually a bunch of green dots. Don’t worry, this is explained in the next mission. After you’ve finished this mission, the next Underground Challenge becomes available. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for more details. (#108, #109, #110) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.C – Destroy Cargo in Port I would suggest starting with the dot on the far right (facing the water). Use your Jetboard and run into the blue lantern-shaped cargo to start a timer. Work your way around the water, going to each of the green dots and destroying the blue cargo. Watch out for the red mines. If you bump into one, it will start beeping and then explode. If you do hit one, get away from it, as the explosion will hurt Jak. While you are on this mission, a Krimzon Guard alert will start. Ignore it as guards will not come in the water and barely any vehicles come to disturb you. Just focus on destroying all of the cargo in the port. If you need to, use a Zoomer to get from one side of the port to the other to make sure you destroy everything in time. Whenever all of the cargo is destroyed, Krew will talk to you and the alarm will end a few seconds after. Let’s go see what he wants. Head to the Hip Hog Saloon and watch the scene inside. You will get a weapon ammo capacity increase, doubling the ammo for each gun. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.D – Rescue Lurkers for Brutter Head outside and grab a Zoomer. Ride to one of the green dots on the map. They are actually Krimzon Guard vehicles. Ride directly behind the one you went for and shoot at the cage containing the Lurker until the vehicle itself is destroyed. Switch down into the lower Hover Zone and use the brakes so that the Lurker can jump on the Zoomer. Drive it to the icon on the map and drop it off at the stand. Grab another Zoomer if yours has taken damage and repeat the entire process for the remaining two Lurkers. Once you drop off the last Lurker, watch the scene. Go back to the saloon to see what Krew’s up to now. Also, once you finish this mission, the next Underground Challenge becomes available. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for more details. (#111, #112, #113) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.E – Drain Sewers to find Statue Make your way to the Sewers icon on the map. Ride the elevator down. Go forward, turn on the light, and take the path to the right. Get on your Jetboard when you reach the room with three platforms above the water. Ride over to the path on the right with the grate ramp. Carefully skate across to the end. You will end up in a room with a pool of water and a switch on the other side. Hit the switch to lower the water and jump down to the bottom. Get on your board again and skate on the path above the water. Dodge the obstacles and when you find yourself in a large room with a bunch of mines, just look for the next pathway on the other side. At the end is another switch. Skate back along the lowered path and back into the large room. There is another path right next to the one you came out of, so take that. Again, avoid the obstacles and ride along the path until you reach the final switch. Skate back along the same path and take the newly accessible entryway. Skate along until you reach the statue of Mar. Approach it to watch a scene. Climb up the stairs nearby, go forward, and drop down to the level below. (#114) Continue straight and ride the elevator to the top of the Sewers. Take the platforms back the way you came and exit into Haven City. When you leave, Brutter will tell you that he’s found a way to repay you. Let’s go get it now. Take a Zoomer into the water slums section (follow the orange-ish icon). /---------------------------------------------------------------------\ |3.2.E.a – Sewers Precursor Orb Locations | | | |#114 – Climb the stairs near the statue of Mar. Go forward and drop | | down to the lower level. Turn around to see the only Orb in | | the Sewers. | \---------------------------------------------------------------------/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.F – Get Seal Piece at Water Slums Once you arrive, Brutter will talk to you a bit... or until all the guards come. I HATE THIS MISSION. There, I said it. I absolutely hate it. Choose a gun and take out the first group of guards. Do not get too close to the vehicle that dropped them off as it will shot a laser at you. Also, don’t fall into the water or else a little robot will shoot you, resulting in instant death. Anyways, after the first round is cleared, walk forward and go left. Keep following the path, blasting any guard that dares to get in your way. If they start shooting at you, do not, I repeat, DO NOT JUMP. The guards can usually shoot you while you are in the air. I find this very unfair, as it is hard to move while you have Krimzon Guards attacking you from three sides. Instead, deal with the guards right in front of you first. I usually find that alternating between the three guns works best. The Scatter Gun works well if you have only one swarm of guards in front of you. The other two work well when they are attacking you from all sides. Just carefully make your way towards the green dot on the map to end the mission... Pretty annoying when I die just a few steps away from the green dot to end the mission... Did I mention that I hate this mission? Here is another strategy to this mission, submitted by Orestes56: Make sure you have enough dark eco to transform into Dark Jak and that you have the Dark Bomb ability. Turn into Dark Jak and press X to jump out over the water in the Slums. Before falling, press Square to perform a Dark Bomb. The attack will destroy the robot in the water, so you can simply swim to the other side of the Slums to reach the green dot. Thanks Orestes56! After this mission is finally over, go to the race garage to talk to the mechanic and finally see her face. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.G – Win Class 3 Race at Stadium Keira tells you that you can see the Baron by winning the Class 1 Race, but you have to start at Class 3. So, head over to the checkered flag icon on the map and then to the flashing green dot to find your vehicle. Hop on to start the race. Aim to get into first place early in the race so as to avoid any last minute rushing. At first, other racers will surround you and you will not be able to move much. However, once everyone really starts to move, you can easily find openings to pass up the racers. Grab the pink turbo boosts and press Circle to use them. Try to use them on straight-aways. There is a shortcut in this course. When you see some red lights, try to stay to the right side and then jump over the gap between the lights farthest to the left. Don’t try this if you don’t have enough speed. Try using a turbo boost to get across. Also, there is a gap later in the race where you either have to use a ramp to get over or take on of the narrow side paths. Only take the ramp if you have enough speed. If you can finish in first place after five laps, the mission will be successful. If not, try again. Watch the scene after the race. Our next stop is the Hip Hog Saloon, so stop by and see Sig. After you complete this mission, you can race again to get Precursor Orbs. (#115-#123) Also, the next Underground Challenge becomes available. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section of this guide for more info. (#124, #125, #126) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.H – Hunt Haven Forest Metal Heads Go ahead over to the mountain icon on the map. Take the Warp Gate to the top and ride on the platform you used to reach the scouts in the forest. This time around, you have to kill 30 Metal Heads. However, you can’t really see them from a distance as they have camouflage ability. However, if you see a yellowish glow, chase it down and kill the Metal Head. If they shoot at you, go in the direction of the shots to find the Metal Head. Check the map of Haven Forest to see where the other Metal Heads are. When you come across the large Metal Heads, shoot them from a distance. Once you’ve taken them all out, leave the forest and go back to Haven City. Head to the hideout to see what the Shadow has to say. After you complete this mission, the next Underground Challenge becomes available. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section of this guide for more info. (#127, #128, #129) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.I – Escort Kid to Power Station As soon as the mission starts, the Kid runs off. Your job is to keep the Krimzon Guards away from him. The Scatter Gun is best for keeping the guards away from the Kid. Don’t let him get surrounded or else the mission will be a failure. Follow the Kid to the double-seater Zoomer (indicated by a green dot on the map). Hop in after him and drive to the next green dot on the map. Park in the beam of light and jump out after the Kid. Protect him the rest of the way up the ramp. Fight off the remaining guards to finish the mission and start another scene. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.J – Destroy Equipment at Dig Ride to the icon on the map. Get in the red vehicle to find yourself at the Dig. The Precursor Orbs here can’t be obtained yet, so just concentrate on the mission. Enter the lit cave and ride the elevator down. Proceed forward and take out the two guards. In the next area, be sure to keep moving or else you may be caught in a bomb’s explosion. Take the path to the left (not the side with all the lava) and follow it until you find a rail with some wires connected to it. Grind on the rail with your Jetboard to snap the cables. Make your way around the cavern, destroying any and all cables you find. Look at the giant piece of equipment in the middle to determine in what general location the next cables will be. After you’ve finished, ride the elevator back up and go back to Haven City in the red vehicle. Head back to the Power Station to see what Vin’s up to. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.K – Blow up Strip Mine Eco Wells Well, by the looks of things, this is pretty bad. As soon as you are out of the Warp Gate, hop onto the Jetboard and go right. Ride up across the ramp hidden by piles of rocks. Dodge the obstacles along the path. When you reach the cylinder with glowing blue fire at the top, ride up the ramp on it and then press X as soon as you begin to get some air. This will launch one of the bombs inside the well. Five more to go! As soon as you launch the first one into the well, go left, dodge the chainsaw, and jump over the gap. Ride up the hills around the mines and close off four wells. To get the last well, go over to the place where there are moving platforms suspended from a steel beam. Ride up one of the ramps holding up the beam and then grind the beam over to the end towards the final well. Skate over to the well and close it off to end the mission. Since you can’t get the Orbs quite yet, go back to the Power Station to talk to Vin and Kor. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.L – Destroy Ship at Drill Platform Use the Warp Gate yet again. Now, this mission can get annoying! Get in the red turret thing. Use the arrow to determine where Krimzon Guards are coming from. Shoot at them to avoid taking damage. When you have to defeat 40, again, pay attention to where the arrow on the circle in the middle of the screen is pointing. Use it to determine the location of the closest guard. Destroy them all and continue. Once you get out of the turret, kill the spinning Metal Heads with the Scatter Gun and head for the next turret. Get in to find yourself head- to-head with the giant ship. Whenever it starts to shoot from one its cannons, aim for the direction the shots are coming from. Keep shooting until the cannon is destroyed or it goes back inside the ship. Keep destroying the cannons until the ship flies out of site. After you exit this turret, follow the path to the next one. Destroy the rest of the cannons on the ship (made difficult by even more guards). Again, use the arrow to determine guards’ locations to take them out quickly. Whenever the ship is destroyed, jump in the Warp Gate. When you leave and exit to Haven City, you can see that something’s going on at Onin’s. Head there now. Whenever you’ve finished this mission, the next Underground Challenge becomes available. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for more details. (#130, #131, #132) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.M – Get Seal Piece at Dig Go to the red vehicle and ride it to the Dig. When you enter, take the same path you did to reach the first mission here. You’ll notice that Metal Heads have taken over here. Anyways, follow the path and grind down the rail ahead. A counter will appear so you know what you’re looking for. Instead of going out of the cave, continue forward to find a button. Press X + Square to press it into the ground. For each one you find, the log will raise more. Jump up onto the wooden path up ahead. Wait until the log with spikes has finished spinning to cross. Go left to find a lone Metal Head on a platform. Kill it and press the button here. Jump back near the first spiked log you jumped across. Go to the one that’s nearest you and that you didn’t cross yet. Hop onto the wooden path and fall down to the right side. Fight off any Metal Heads that come for you and check under the platform you were just on. There should be another button there. (#133) Go back up to the path you were just on. Take the right path at the fork and grab the Orb floating above the platforms. (#134) Jump and press X above the platforms to push them down. Push one down twice to make the entire row fall. When you fall with them, make sure to move inside the alcove to avoid dying. Press the button here. Go forward, drop down, and go right to find yourself in the same area as the third button you found. Get back up on the path and take the left at the fork this time. (#135) Jump up the platforms ahead and grind down the rail. (#136) Jump up to the top platform and jump on the swinging bar whenever it’s close. If you miss, you can always try again. Jump off of it when the balloon stops moving. Now, turn around to see a lower section right above the lava. Go down there and kill any opposing Metal Heads. Find the room with a bunch of crates and the final button. Press it. (#137) Use the platforms outside to get up to the rail you had to grind. Go back down it and use the swinging bar to get to the other section again. Kill any and all Metal Heads you see. Climb up the ledges on the right side and use the log you just raised to climb up to the top. (#138) Kill the three Metal Heads and jump to the rock in the lava. Jump across the lava and use the balloon swings to get to the end of this area. Follow the path until you come across the spiked log platform. Use it to jump up to the next ledge. (#139)(#140) Use the platforms to continue. Kill the Metal Head when you reach it. Stay away from the edge of the platform as some spiked boulders fly down the ramp. Carefully and quickly head up the ramp. Stand in the section between the two doors and wait for your opportunity to jump to the next wooden platform. Continue to the totem pole for a scene. Use the wooden path on the left side of the totem pole to find a Warp Gate. Use it to get back to the Power Station. Torn is waiting for you, so go back to the Underground Hideout to see what he’s up to. /---------------------------------------------------------------------\ |3.2.M.a – Dig Site Precursor Orb Locations | | | |#133 – From the button you just found, turn the camera to find some | | platforms floating on lava leading into a cave.

The Orb is on the | | wooden path right in front of the building. | \---------------------------------------------------------------------/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.N – Destroy 5 HellCat Cruisers Exit the hideout, grab the ammo inside the crates, and board the Zoomer. Follow one of the green dots to find a large, blue vehicle. Shoot at it with the Vulcan Fury. Keep the R1 button pressed to keep up a train of rapid-fire bullets. As soon as you hit the vehicle, the Krimzon Guards will be on alert. Just keep shooting until the vehicle goes down. Get a different vehicle if necessary and go after one of the remaining four dots. Repeat the process to destroy the rest of the HellCat Cruisers. I found this mission to be pretty annoying as the cruisers can shoot at you from behind, so be careful. Whenever you’ve destroyed all five, go see Onin in the bazaar. Once you’ve completed this mission, the next Underground Challenge becomes available. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for more details. (#141, #142, #143) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.O – Beat Onin Game In this fun little game, you have to press the symbols that come flying up. The symbols include the X, Circle, Square, and Triangle Buttons. Make sure to press the lower symbols first. If you miss a symbol, it will count as one of your twenty misses. If you press the wrong button, it will count as a miss and you will lose points. Your goal here is to get 400 points. After you’ve won the game, follow the icon on the map to the forest. If you can get a score of 1,000 if you play this game again, you will be rewarded with 3 Precursor Orbs. (#144, #145, #146) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.P – Use items in No Man’s Canyon Use the Warp Gate when you arrive. Do not ride the platform down! Instead, shoot the other platform with your Blaster Gun and hop across. Ride the elevator down and walk into the beam of light. Enter the newly opened doorway. Follow the path and grind down the pipes. Follow the ledges through the door and then follow the path yet again all the way to an area with a gray ground. Watch the scene. Go back to the area where the pipes are. Do not grind up them. Instead, go left and follow the path to the entrance of the forest. Roll jump across to the platform with the Warp Gate. Exit into Haven City. Go to the icon on the map and enter Mar’s Tomb. You know... you would think that the guards would do something if there were a big explosion opening the way to the entrance of some long lost tomb. Oh well... Anyways, ride down the elevator and watch the scene. Oh! There are the guards! ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.Q – Pass the second Test of Manhood (#147) (#148) Go down all the stairs and into the area with all the water. (#149) (#150) From the stairs, go forward and enter the large door to the right. Climb up the ledges and jump over the gap. Step on the square in the middle of the room and remember which beetles have the red marking on their chest. Hit these three to continue to the next room. In the next room, jump in the water and dive under the wall that’s blocking your way. Wait until the electricity has zapped until coming up and jumping up to the next ledge. Kill the two spiders in the next room and repeat the same process with the next pool of water. In the next area, step on the square. Jump over to the flashing platform. Do not step on any other ones and do not take a long time. Get over to the next square and step on it. Do the same thing and jump through the open door. Kill the three spiders up ahead and get ready to swim again. Submerge and wait until the electricity zaps. Get to the other side quickly and enter the door. Step on the square to find more beetles. Remember which ones have the red mark and hit them to continue. Quickly cross the next pool of water to the middle. Jump over the raised ledge when the electricity stops and immediately dive underwater again. Go to the other side and jump out of the water. Step on the next square to repeat the whole flashing platform process. Get to the door to find another electricity pool. Go forward and then right to get to the next room. In this challenge, you have to match the stones’ tunes with others. It’s kind of like a memory game. Match them all to open the door to get out. Press the square ahead to shoot a beam of light to the locked door and raise a platform. Use it to get back down. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.R – Pass the first Test of Manhood Enter the door that you did not enter before. Kill the spiders and proceed to the dark eco filled room. Time your jumps carefully to get across the spiked platforms. NOTE: To avoid dying by falling in the dark eco, bring out your Jetboard if you are falling. Jump to the right to swing on a pole. When Jak reaches the top of his swing, move the analog stick up and jump to the platform above. Kill off any spiders that try to stop you and use the moving pole to jump across to the moving platform. Lastly, jump onto the moving pole when it’s on the left side. Jump off and ride the elevator down. Step on the square to raise the spiked platforms. The spikes won’t come back up, but the platforms move. So, carefully make your way up the four platforms. More moving poles! Carefully make your way past this section of the room. Step on the next square to move the platforms around again. Ride the elevator down to the bottom. (#151) Climb down the stairs that have just appeared. Kill all the spiders and approach the boulder. Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot side appears here as you are now in control of Daxter. You have to run from the giant boulder, jumping over gaps. Be careful! When the boulder stops, continue along until you meet a ginormous spider. Now you have to run from that thing. Hit any spiders that get in your way and jump over more gaps. Mind your distance from this beast and carefully jump over even trickier gaps. When you reach the end of this path, you’ll have to use the spider webs and paths to climb to the top. Get up there to reach another little running sequence. Once you cross through the door, you’re safe! Plus, you’ll be in control of Jak again. Go through the opening the boulder was previously blocking. Carefully use the next series of paths, ledges, poles, and platforms to reach the top of the room. After you’ve finished this difficult room, step on the square and ride the platform down. Go to the door at the end of the room that was previously closed. Watch the scene to find an unexpected and unwelcome guest. /---------------------------------------------------------------------\ |3.2.Q-R.a – Mar’s Tomb Precursor Orb Locations | | | | | |#147 – As soon as you enter, check the left side for the Orb. | |#148 – As soon as you enter, check the right side for the Orb. | |#149 – In the first area you enter with a lot of water, check the | | column closest to the large door on the left side to find the | | Orb. | |#150 – Same as #149, only it’s on the right side. | |#151 – After you move the platforms for a second time, use them to | | climb up to an alcove above the entrance to find the Orb. This| | is in the first Test of Manhood (which is actually the second | | one listed in this guide). | \---------------------------------------------------------------------/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.2.S – Defeat Baron in Mar’s Tomb For the first part of this battle, kill the little robots with your Scatter Gun. Next, the Baron will launch bombs at you. Kick (press Circle) the bombs back at him to cause damage. Hurry before they explode! Also, if they’re about to explode, move away from them. Once you clear out the Baron’s first green bar, he will launch the robots at you like normal, only this time he will shoot at you. Double jump over his bullets to avoid damage and take out the rest of the robots. Kick the bombs at him. After you clear his second bar, the Baron will pull free the Precursor Stone. Watch out for the Baron’s newly added laser. When he uses it, there will be a gap in the path left behind. Afterwards, the Baron will throw bombs at you. Kick them back at him when he comes up to use his green laser again. Be aware that he will still use his rapid-fire attack against you. Just keep launching the bombs at him to end the battle. Watch the scene and leave by crossing the water to the other side of the room and climbing up all the stairs. Ride the elevator back up to Haven City. This ends Act 2. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3 – Act 3 After even more long, grueling missions, the final act starts. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.A – Rescue Friends in Fortress Go talk to Torn after you leave Mar’s Tomb. On your way there, you may notice that there are a different kind of Krimzon Guards. The yellow Krimzon Guards are tougher to kill. When you meet with Torn, you’ll learn how the Baron knew where you were. Anyways, leave the hideout and go to the icon on the map. Hop up over the computers to find two blue poles. Go through them. You should hear Krimzon Guards’ voices, so be ready to fight a bunch. If you want, you can peek around the corner (not right next to it as there’s a pit there) and shoot the yellow guard off the little platform. Your main goal in this room is to clear out all of the guards. The easiest way for me was to stay in the area right before entering the lit area of this room and shoot any guards that I could see. After they stopped appearing, I would keep rolling to dodge any shots fired at me. Clear the room of the guards and then go around to the little circular platforms and press all of the red buttons. To press them, press X then Square to dive onto them. There is a total of four buttons to press in this room. There is one more in front of an electrical fence in the next room. Press them all to turn off the fence. After turning off the fence, you’ll find yourself facing some cannons with laser pointers. To avoid getting hit, jump over the lasers and onto the cannons to get to the other side of the room. One of them is higher than the rest, so you have to watch out for that one when you jump across the tops of the cannons. Head forward to see some moving blue electricity. Hop on the Jetboard and carefully ride up and down the half-pipe, jumping over the blue electricity or staying within two beams. The next room is to the left of the room you just came out of. When you enter this room, you will see right away that there are two more cannons with laser pointers, ready to shoot you. Approach the rail in the middle of them and grind across it with your Jetboard. Jump over the pointers if they ever come close to catching you. After crossing the rail, follow the path to the next area. Guards will shoot down at you from above, kind of like they did in the beginning only they shot from below. Safely make it past the grate and get ready to kill even more guards. Hop up to the higher ledge, kill the guards, and immediately turn to shoot the flying guards. Carefully cross the bridge ahead while avoiding the cannons’ laser pointers. Walk forward and a door will automatically open for you. The robots will keep popping up, so just continue to the next door. Approach the Warp Gate and watch the scene. The group will go through the Warp Gate. Leave the Power Station. You can choose which one of the missions you want to complete, but the next mission for this guide is the Protect Hideout from Bombots mission. The other two missions are the Win Class 2 Race at Stadium and the Escort men through Sewers. Choose any of the three (see Keira for the race, Krew for the Sewers, Samos for the Bombots). ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.B – Protect Hideout from Bombots Exit the hideout. Go to the Industrial Zone to find two Bombots. To take out the robots, stand right next to them to stay out of the range of the electrical beam. Keep shooting at them with the Vulcan Fury. Once you hear a beeping noise, get out of the way to avoid the Bombot’s explosion. Take out the two in the Industrial Section first and then go to destroy the remaining one. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.C – Win Class 2 Race at Stadium Go to the wrench on the map and talk to Keira. Erol will threaten you and Keira and Samos will walk in. For the Class 2 Race, you’ll have to drive as Daxter. I actually found this race easier than the first one. There is another shortcut here. Again, when you see the red lights, look ahead to see a few columns. Use a turbo boost and fly in between the two. Be careful not to run into one or else you will most likely fall down the gap. When you see some yellow and black lines along with two little dips on either side, try to stay in the middle to maintain your speed. Make sure to finish first or else you’ll have to race again. After you complete this mission, you can race again to get Precursor Orbs. (#152-#160) Also, the next Underground Challenge becomes available. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for more details. (#161, #162, #163) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.D – Escort men through Sewers Go to the saloon and talk to Krew. Okay... Krew sleeping... is just NASTY. Anyways, after the scene, leave the saloon and go to the Sewers. Enter the door and ride down the elevator. You’ll meet the three men you have to protect. Ride the next elevator down and get ready to fight a Metal Head. Kill it and continue forward to find two more waiting for you. Kill them as well. Shoot all the ones coming down from the wall. One of the men will step forward and blow up the debris blocking your way. Be sure to stand back to avoid the explosion. In the next room, kill the Metal Heads coming down from the path and then the ones coming from behind. Follow the men forward and ride the elevator down. Follow them again and shoot the Metal Heads in the way. More will come up from behind, so be ready. Follow the electrical beams all the while jumping over them to find three Metal Heads. Kill them and follow the three other beams. Stay to the left side and jump to avoid the electricity. Shoot the Metal Heads and continue forward. In the next room, a short scene will play and Metal Heads will come down from the ceiling. Shoot them all and make sure that none of the men get killed. For this part, stay back by the three men to make sure no Metal Heads get past you. Follow the men a bit more and watch the scene. Leave the Sewers and head into Haven City. Since I haven’t mentioned it before and you’ve most likely gotten them by now, if you have 200 Metal Head Skull Gems, go see the Oracle. If you’ve already done so or don’t have enough, go to the purple icon on the map. Enter the Gun Course and break open the crate basking in the beam of light. Pick up the... Peace Maker! After you’re done praising, go back to the saloon and talk to Krew. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.E – Go to the Oracle Head to the Water Slums and approach the Oracle for a scene. Whenever you transform into Dark Jak, you’ll be invincible! ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.F – Beat Erol in Race Challenge As soon as you exit the saloon, you should see two Zoomers waiting. Hop onto the empty one to begin the race. Don’t skip any rings or else you’ll automatically lose. In the beginning right before the first ring, try to cut in front of Erol for an early lead. Start turning while you’re on the ramp up ahead to cut down some time. Keep an eye on the mini-map to see where the next ring is. When you get into the western bazaar section, be prepared to make some sharp turns. Do not stray too far from the path or else it will be an automatic failure. When you are near the fountain that Mar’s Tomb is near, don’t go towards the port. Instead, keep straight. I found myself doing this a lot, so I failed... a lot. Even though Erol says that you can’t miss one ring, he skips them often. When you reach the Business Section, don’t be afraid to let off the gas a bit to make the sharp turns and grab all of the rings. When you reach the end of the race, watch the scene. Go to the Power Station to talk to Vin. On your way there, Samos will contact you. Instead of going to see Vin, listen to Samos and go to Dead Town. After you’ve completed this mission, the next two Underground Challenges become available. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for more details. (#164, #165, #166) (#167-#175) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.G – Get Life Seed in Dead Town When you enter, walk forward, turn the camera to the left, and move to the beam of light. Press Triangle to get in the Titan Suit. Press Square in front of the door to break it open. Kill the Metal Head and break the next door. Two Metal Heads wait. Destroy them along with the next door. Press R1 next to the block and push it as far as you can. Jump on it and then jump up to the next ledge (hold X for a higher and longer jump). (#176) To kill the next enemy, get out of the Titan Suit and beat it so the suit doesn’t take any damage. Break the brick wall. Push the block to the ledge by the wall you just destroyed. Jump up to it and get out of the Titan Suit to destroy the two enemies up here. Push the block to the ledge and jump up. Get out of the suit and shoot the enemy across the gap. (#177) Follow the narrow path to find a column. Hit the column to make a bridge. Go down to the lower platform and grab the block with R1. Take it up the steps and throw it (press Square) at the column to make another bridge. Throw the next block at the brick wall. Jump across the gap and make an immediate left turn to find another column. Knock it over and walk across. Watch the scene. To get to the entrance, go back the way you came. You don’t have to worry about the Titan Suit, so you can leave it where it is. Exit into Haven City. (#178-#183) When you enter Haven City, make your way to Onin’s Tent. After the scene, go to Haven Forest. Take the Warp Gate to the top and ride the platform down. Look at the map to see the green dot. Go there to find Samos waiting. Approach him for a scene. After you’ve completed this mission, the next Underground Challenge becomes available. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for more details. (#184, #185, #186) /---------------------------------------------------------------------\ |3.3.G.a – Dead Town Precursor Orb Locations | | | |#176 – After pushing the first block to the ledge, jump up to the | | top and turn around to see the Orb sitting on a bridge-like | | path. | |#177 – When you arrive in the area where two Metal Heads shoot at | | you, kill them and push the block to the ledge. Jump up and | | the left path leads you to the Orb. | |#178 – Follow the path that you took during the Protect Site at Dead | | Town mission. Jump across the two gray stones (the first one | | is higher than the other) across the muck. When you reach the | | sandy area, hop on your Jetboard and go around the wall | | directly in front of you. Continue until you see two rock | | steps. The Orb is on top of them. | |#179 – From Orb #178, hop on the Jetboard and continue into the next | | section. The Orb is in plain sight. | |#180 – From #179, go down the hallway to find the Orb. | |#181 – Right in front of #180. | |#182 – To the right of #181. | |#183 – Follow the muck path from #182 and hop over the stone steps to| | find the Orb. | \---------------------------------------------------------------------/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.H – Protect Samos in Haven Forest Always stand by Samos for this mission. Shoot any guards. They will come from the left or from the right. If there are any flying guards that come to attack, press X, Circle, and then R1 to shoot a bunch of bullets into the air. If Samos’s life bar drops down to nothing, the mission is a failure. Fight off the guards until the scene shows. Leave Haven Forest and go back to the city. Go to the bazaar to check in on Brutter. After you’ve completed this mission, the next Underground Challenge becomes available. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for more details. (#187, #188, #189) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.I – Rescue Lurkers For Brutter Grab a Zoomer and go after any one of the green dots on the map. When you get to one, get your Zoomer behind the cruiser with a cage on it. Shoot the cage until the vehicle explodes. Switch into the lower Hover Zone and let the Lurker jump on. Drive it to the green dot on the map. This time, you don’t take them to Brutter. Just drive them to the green dot on the map. Transport all six Lurkers to complete the mission. Now, finally, go talk to Vin. After you’ve completed this mission, the next Underground Challenge becomes available. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for more details. (#190, #191, #192) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.J – Destroy Eggs in Strip Mine Use the Warp Gate to go to the Strip Mine. From the Warp Gate, go straight until you see a ramp to the right. Ride up the slope and follow the path, avoiding all of the obstacles. When you reach the rail, grind on it with the Jetboard. Go past the two saws and choose a pipe. They both lead to the same place, but be sure to jump across the gap at the end. (#193) You should find yourself by a bunch of ramps with lights on them. Go up the conveyer belt nearby and follow the path, avoiding more obstacles. Be sure to jump when you see the yellow band across the ground as there is a gap that you could fall into. Jump and grind on either pipe to reach the next ledge. Skate on the half pipe and jump over any gates that get in your way. Get to the next area. Follow the path to find a moving platform. Luckily, if you die, you will not have to start over from the Warp Gate. While on the moving platform, jump onto any of the three rails and grind to the next ledge. Grind again and be sure to jump over the gap in the middle of the rail. Dodge the saw and the drills. Choose whichever rail you think the platform will be in front of when you reach the end and grind it across. Jump across the platform onto the next area. (#194) (#195) Go up either conveyer belt and go right. Go across both moving platforms and land safely on the ground. (#196) ride the Jetboard along the path. Skate ride off the edge to trigger a scene. Finally, those ugly Metal Head Eggs are gone! Use the Warp Gate to get back. Watch the scene. /---------------------------------------------------------------------\ |3.3.J.a – Strip Mine Precursor Orb Locations (Part 2) | | | |#193 – When you pass up the two saws in a row and find two pipes, | | grind either one and jump to the next area. The Orb is in the | | corner by the row of ramps with lights on them. | |#194 – After you grind across one of the three rails and then jump | | onto the moving platform, jump to the next area. Check behind | | the set of ramps to find the Orb. | |#195 – Right by #194. | |#196 – After you jump across two moving platforms in a row, climb up | | the second stack of boxes supporting a rail. If you have to, | | turn the camera to see a ledge with the Orb on it. Simply jump| | to it to reach it. | \---------------------------------------------------------------------/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.K – Destroy Drill Platform Tower Use the Warp Gate again to get to the Drill Platform. Jump into the Titan Suit behind the gate. Hit the metal door three times to knock it over. Ride the elevator down. Time your way across the bridge to avoid getting hit with the beams. Quickly break down the door and enter the next room. Do not jump across the platforms. Instead, get out of the Titan Suit after crossing the bridge. Now go across the platforms. Double Jump and then spin in the air to reach the high ledge. Defeat the two Metal Heads and then hit the red switch. Jump down to the Titan Suit and ride the lift up. Break down the door. Quickly jump across the next two platforms as they will fall. Time your way across the grills and enter the next area. Get out of the Titan Suit, Roll Jump across the gap, kill the Metal Heads, and hit the switch. Go back and get in the suit. Go across the platform you just raised. Jump over the gap with the suit and get out of it. Roll Jump again across the gap. Wait until the fire is down to hit the switch. Go back to get the Titan Suit and go across the platform you just raised. Cross the fiery grill and cross the bridge, carefully avoiding the electric beams. Get to the next area, which is filled with hot grills. As soon as the flames are out, get on the grill. Walk as far as you can and get on one of the platforms when the flames go up. As soon as they’re down, get back on the grill. The platforms off to the sides will fall, so you want to get on them right before the fire comes up. If the suit isn’t too badly damaged, don’t be afraid to let the fire hit it. Just keep a close eye on the health bar at the top of the screen. After you’ve gotten to the other side, go left and a door will automatically slide open. Ride the lift up. Get out of the Titan Suit and defeat the Metal Heads. Walk around the area to make sure that you’ve killed all of them. Next, hit all four sides of the two computers to get the count down to 2. Walk into the next room and hit the remaining computers. As soon as you destroy the last one, an alarm will sound and a timer will start. Go back to the lift you just rode and ride it again. Go back through all of the rooms you just came through with the Titan Suit before the timer runs out. In the first room with the grills, you can easily jump to the falling platforms so you can get through this room quickly. When you reach the room where you had to hit the switch to activate the lift, just jump down to the lower bridge and continue to the end. I found it unfair that the last lift took ten seconds to reach the top, so make sure to go VERY quickly. After the short scene, go back through the Warp Gate. Exit the Power Station into the city. Head to the Stadium and talk to Keira. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.L – Win Class 1 Race in Stadium After the scene, go to the checkered flag icon on the map. Walk to the beam of light and get in the vehicle. Before this race starts, there is a scene. There are two shortcuts you can use in this race. The first one is to the right of the starting line. It’s a narrow hallway and it will put you by the tunnel entrance. In the beginning of the tunnel, there is a large gap in the middle of the road. It is surrounded by red lights, so use them as a warning to stay on the side of the road. The second shortcut is available right after you exit the tunnel. It’s towards the right of the road, and it is a ramp marked with red arrows. Use the shortcuts to make the race easier. After winning the race, watch the scene. You’ll end up back in the city with the Krimzon Guards on alert. Keep moving to avoid their shots and go to the icon on the map. After you’ve completed this mission, the next Underground Challenge becomes available. See the Other Precursor Orb Locations section for more details. (#197-#205) (#206-#214) (#215, #216, #217) ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.M – Explore Palace When you enter the palace, ride the elevator up. Walk forward and stay towards the left to open up a large pair of doors. Continue down the red-carpeted path to meet up with Ashelin. Face the large pair of doors and look between the two pillars on the left hand side, closest to the doors. You should see a small opening underneath a shield. Go through there. Fall down and follow the path. Use the poles to swing up to the platform. Quickly jump up the next three platforms and take out the yellow guards. Cross more falling platforms. Stay behind the glass and wait until it is safe to walk in front of the turret. Shoot and kill the bunch of Krimzon Guards waiting for you. I actually stayed back in the little area with the turret and shot the guards from there just to be safe. After they’re all gone, follow the platforms and break open the crate for a health pack. Continue forward to find a cracked window to your left. Shoot the window with a gun to break it. Grind the ledge with the Jetboard to reach two Krimzon Guard Crates. Jump across the three falling platforms and continue to the next room. Watch out for the firing turret and make your way to the room with the elevator. Walk down the hallway and go through the opening on the left hand side. Break the crates and grind across the pipes. Be careful, as there is a bunch of gaps that you have to jump over while grinding. Jump up the ledges and shoot all of the Krimzon Guards in sight. Shoot the center of the circular object on the ceiling to lower it. Grind on the edge to reach the next platform. Get past the firing turret and kill the Krimzon Guards. Go past the glass to the series of falling platforms. Break the glass (punch or kick it) and take out any more Krimzon Guards that are in the way. Jump to the next platform and jump across even more falling ones. Go through the door that automatically opens and ride the elevator down. Exit into Haven City and Ashelin will contact you. Go to the icon on the map and use the red vehicle. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.N – Get Heart of Mar in Weapons Lab After arriving, climb the ledges up the hill to the beam of light. Enter the door at the top of the stairs. (#218) Ride the circular lift down. Ride the escalator down and kill all of the guards. Go to the left and press the button near the escalator to turn off the electric fence. Go through and fight more guards. Climb the down escalator up (use the Jetboard) and kill any more guards up here. There are two crates to the left of this escalator and one contains a health pack if you need it. Continue along the path and kill all of the rolling robots that drop down to swing some platforms close to you. Jump across them and kill the guards. Stand on top of the spinning switch and press Circle to move the platforms again. Jump across them and ride the circular lift up. (#219) Kill the two guards up here, jump on the Jetboard, and go across the escalator, dodging the spinning spikes. Fall off the edge to land on another conveyer belt. (#220) Go down this belt (going against its direction) and shoot the two blocks with the circular design on them. Jump onto them and get up to the higher ledge. Jump onto the next conveyer belt and climb up to the top. Shoot the next block with the circular design on it and jump over to it. Go through the doorway to the next room. Shoot all of the guards on the lower level of this floor. Hit the red switch next to the conveyer belt to switch its direction. (#221) Ride up the belt and jump over the gap at the top. Use the Jetboard to get to the top of the next conveyer belt. Jump over the gap and hit the red switch. Either use your Jetboard, or shoot the blocks with the circular designs on the wall to get across the next belt. Get to the top of the next belt and shoot at the red switch. Get across the next belt and jump up to the ledge to find some more rolling robots. Destroy them all to turn off the electrical beams in front of the switch. Hit it and ride up the conveyer belt. (#222) Shoot the guards on the next platform, but don’t spin the switch yet. Instead, jump across the three platforms and shoot all the guards that are shooting at you. Hit the spinning switch here and jump across the platforms again. Shoot the guards shooting at you again and hit the switch on this platform. Jump across the three platforms and hit the next switch on the next platform. Jump across the three yet again and press X and then Square on the Krimzon Guard face on the ground to smash to the lower level. Break the crates ahead and then fall down to the lower area. Kill all of the robots (press X, Circle, and then R1 to fire five shots in a circle) and then go through the newly available door. Ride the lift up. When you reach the top, get off and watch the scene. You’ll get a weapon damage increase, but you’ll have to fight Krew. /---------------------------------------------------------------------\ |3.3.N.a – Weapons Lab Precursor Orb Locations | | | |#218 – Before riding the first lift down, check the corners of the | | room to find the Orb. | |#219 – After kicking the switch to spin the platforms around, jump | | across them and go left. Check behind the barrels of eco for | | the Orb. | |#220 – Ride the flat conveyer belt, dodging the arms with the | | spinning spikes on the end. Fall off the edge at the end and | | ride the next conveyer belt to the top to find the Orb. | |#221 – In the room right after the Orb above. The Orb is underneath | | the first conveyer belt with the switch. | |#222 – In the same room as the one above. The Orb is beside a large | | pipe. The pipe is by the first spinning switch in this room. | \---------------------------------------------------------------------/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.O – Beat Krew in Weapons Lab To start off, do not physically attack the little green blobs of Krew. Instead, shoot at them with a gun, preferably the Scatter Gun. If they gather in numbers, you could use the Peace Maker to shoot them all. After they’re all gone, dodge Krew’s fire and then continuously shoot at him to keep him from attacking. Repeat the process with the little blobs and Krew to eventually defeat him. Watch the scene after the battle to find yourself back in Haven City. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.P – Beat the Metal Head Mash Game Go to the saloon and watch the scene. For this mini-game, there are two diamonds made of four circles each. For the one on the left, each circle corresponds to one of the arrows on the directional pad. For example, the left circle is the left arrow on the D-pad, the right is the right arrow. For the second diamond, each circle corresponds to one of the four buttons. For example, the left circle is the Square button, the right circle is the Circle button. With this basic knowledge, you can play this game. As for the Metal Head types, there are three. The green Metal Heads are the most basic point-scorers (10 points). The gold ones will give you 50 points. As for the red, electrified ones, they will stun Daxter. If you miss one of the Metal Heads, it will count as a miss. Get 20 misses, and the mission is a failure. Score 1500 points to trigger a scene. Unfortunately, you can’t win any Orbs from this game, so go to the icon on the map. On your way, Vin will contact you and freak out. His information explains why the Metal Heads are now in Haven City. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.Q – Find Sig in Under Port When you enter the door, ride the elevator down. Get in the Titan Suit and the entire place will fill with water. Wait until the door nearby opens up and go straight for the blue beam of light to refill the blue bar on the right side of the screen. Look out for the mine and break the gate at the top of the stairs nearby. You can actually punch the mine, just be sure that you hit it before it hits you. Immediately head for the beam of light, while avoiding or punching the mines. Fight off any Metal Heads and fall down the square hole. Break open the next gate and again, immediately head for the blue beam of light. Cross the mine-filled room and get to the next blue light, while killing off any enemies. Go into the next room and stay along the left wall to find the next gate. Break it and continue. Replenish the air supply and then punch all four platforms. After you’ve done that, ride the square platform up to the top. Fall down through the hole. (#223) Punch through the gate and quickly walk across the bridge to the beam of light. Kill any remaining Metal Heads in this room and get more air before leaving into the next room. In the next room, fight off the Metal Heads and go to the entry to the next room on the right-hand side. If you’re low on health, don’t worry about them and just keep going. Step in the column of light to get some air and then ride the square lift up. Jump to the next lift and wait until it stops moving to jump towards the air column. Be careful as it is a long jump and there is a huge gap waiting for you. Refill your air and go into the next room. Kill the single enemy and go into the room to the left. Stand in the middle and the water will drop down. Get out of the Titan Suit and leave through the open door. Follow the path, jump over the gap, and find Sig. /---------------------------------------------------------------------\ |3.3.Q.a – Under Port Precursor Orb Locations | | | |#223 – After you raise the four platforms and jump across them, drop | | down through the square hole. Turn around and face away from | | the gate to see the Orb. | \---------------------------------------------------------------------/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.R – Escort Sig in Under Port For the first block in the first room, punch it so it is lined up with its square and then hit it straight into the square. For the second block, you just have to punch it straight into its square. However, you have to hurry, as the blocks will start to flash. Get them in the squares before they blow up. Follow Sig to see a short scene. In the chase sequence, just carefully jump from platform to platform. Some move, so time your jumps as quickly as possible. When you reach the electric fence, you’re close to the end of the chase, so just finish up and watch the short scene. For this block, hit it forward three times and then jump onto the platform with Sig. Shoot the block with the Blaster twice to get it into the square. The door will open. Follow Sig to another two blocks. Let him handle the Metal Heads so you can solve the block puzzle. Hurry so that Sig will not lose all of his health. For the left block, hit it forward until you can’t any more. Then hit it to the left, again, until you can’t move it any more. Then hit it forward and to the left. For the right block, hit it left, forward until it is next to its square, and then to the right. The door will open and Sig will jump down. Follow him forward to meet up with the giant centipede-like Metal Head. Dodge the electric beams and then shoot the platform up ahead with the Blaster. Continue along the moving platforms and then get ready to shoot two more platforms. Move across the moving platform and then fall down the hole after Sig. Break the gate and then fall down after Sig again. Walk along the next path and then watch the scene. Keep moving until you reach the lift. Take it up and then exit. Keira will contact you. NOTE!!! THERE IS A GLITCH THAT CAN OCCUR WHEN YOU GO TO FIND KEIRA! DO NOT change the stadium to race in any of the races or even the Jetboard challenge. Just go straight to see Keira. If you do change it, she will not appear and the game cannot be completed. Again, go straight to Keira, do not stop and play through a race. Watch the scene when you arrive. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.S – Defend Stadium NOTE!!! THERE IS A GLITCH THAT CAN OCCUR WHEN YOU GO TO FIND KEIRA! DO NOT change the stadium to race in any of the races or even the Jetboard challenge. Just go straight to see Keira. If you do change it, she will not appear and the game cannot be completed. Again, go straight to Keira, do not stop and play through a race. The two Samoses will lift up part of the balloon and carry it. Your job is to protect them from oncoming Metal Heads. It may be a bit hard to see them, since the big glowing thing is a big distraction. I found that it is easy to stay close to the Samos in the back and shoot any Metal Head you see with the Scatter Gun. If you get enough eco for Dark Jak, use one of his attacks to kill of hordes of Metal Heads. After a scene, Vin will contact you. Go to the icon on the map. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.T – Check Construction Site When you arrive, walk inside the small pair of doors. Go up the stairs and then out the metal door. Walk down the wooden path for a scene. (#224) (#225) Leave the way you came in. Once outside in the city, Ashelin and Torn will contact you. Go to the icon on the map and use the red vehicle. /---------------------------------------------------------------------\ |3.3.T.a – Construction Site Precursor Orb Locations | | | |#224 – Right next to the wooden ramp leading down into the main area | | of the Construction Site. | |#225 – Check behind one of the large columns. Some of them look like | | spools of wire. | \---------------------------------------------------------------------/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.U – Break Barrier at Nest At the start of the level, break open the crates to get ammo. Kill any Metal Heads that come to attack you. When you see the large Metal Head spider, do not get close to it. Instead, shoot at it with one of your guns. (#226) Spin the valve nearby. Go to the platform you just raised and jump onto the ledge above. Kill all of the Metal Heads and continue to break two crates. Jump up to the ledge to your left. Stay to the right to find more ledges to climb up. Kill the Metal Heads and go through the opening next to the green light. Walk forward along this path to see a scene. ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.V – Attack the Metal Head Nest (#227) (#228) (#229) Walk down the path by the gun and fight off all of the Metal Heads. When you go up the ramp, ignore the big Metal Head and just worry about taking out the spider Metal Heads. Ignore the large Metal Head. (#230) (#231) Keep moving and fighting off more Metal Heads. (#232) If you see another large Metal Head shooting off electricity, follow up the path to find more spiders waiting for you. Shoot them all and take the path with the bones jutting out of it. Make sure to follow the curve of the path so that you won’t fall into the Dark Eco below. Pass the large Metal Head when the electricity isn’t on and take out any spider Metal Heads in the way. Go up the slope to find more jumping and spider Metal Heads. Follow the path and kill everything that poses a threat. Jump up onto the ledge and go left to the path with what looks like green eggs on the ground. Stay to the right of this area to find another path leading you to more eggs. Keep going straight into the purple area for a scene. /---------------------------------------------------------------------\ |3.3.U-V.a – Metal Head Nest Precursor Orb Locations | | | |Grab these Orbs now or else you will not be able to go back to get | |them later. | | | |#226 – Climb up the hill to the left of the first Metal Head spider | | you encounter. The Orb is on top of one of the rock-type | | things. | |#227 – Check behind Mar’s big red gun to find this Orb. | |#228 – Next to #218. | |#229 – Next to #219. | |#230 – As this Orb’s location is a bit hard to describe, this | | description is based on the map in the menu. This Orb is in | | southernmost area of the nest, close to the end of the long, | | brown area. | |#231 – Drop down from the above Orb’s location. There is a large | | stone structure ahead, next to the ramp where the large Metal | | Head is patrolling. Climb the stone structure to find the Orb.| |#232 – The last Orb for the nest is located on top of a red gun by | | the first large Metal Head that shoots electricity. It is | | inside a black structure on top of the red gun. | \---------------------------------------------------------------------/ ----------------------------------------------------------------------- 3.3.W – Destroy Metal Kor at Nest For the first bar of Kor’s health, kill any Metal Heads that come close to you, but don’t worry about their Skull Gems. After you’ve cleared them out, shoot at Kor with the Blaster Gun as the crates will only have that ammunition. If Kor charges up a dark projectile, Roll Jump just as it is about to hit to dodge the damage. When you have a chance, continuously shoot at Kor to bring down his health to the second bar. During the second stage, Kor launches two projectiles at once, so keep moving! Also, if you see any flying Metal Heads, press X, Circle, and then R1 to shoot them, any scorpion Metal Heads nearby, and to damage Kor. Keep this up until his health sinks to the last bar. Before the third stage begins, a short scene occurs. Keep a safe distance away from Metal Kor. Be sure to be on opposite sides of the cavern before you shoot at him. Dodge his triple projectiles. If Kor causes a purple ring to appear, simply jump over it to avoid any damage. Keep up the continuous firing to kill the Metal Head Leader. Watch the ending scene. Congratulations! You’ve beaten the game! After you’ve beaten this mission, the next three Underground Challenges become available. See the Other Precursor Orb section for more details.

Mirror World – Everything is flipped around. For example, on the map of Haven City, the Stadium would be where the Water Slums were and the Water Slums would be where the Stadium was. The two yellow paths would switch places with the Slums and the Industrial Zone. Scrap Books – These will allow you to see art from the game. You can view them after you unlock them in the main menu. Scene Players – After you’ve completed the scene you’ve unlocked, you can view the different scenes from that act. Reverse Races – These races have the exact same courses as the original races; only you go around the track in the opposite direction. Level Select – After you’ve completed the game and unlocked this secret, you can go back and play through any mission in the game. Hero Mode – This secret allows you to start a new game with all four guns and Metal Heads will drop their Skull Gems, no matter how many times you’ve killed them.

These mini-games can be gun courses or driving missions. You may notice yellow arrows on your map of Haven City. These are mission kiosks. At these locations, you can talk to Torn to receive a mission to complete for Precursor Orbs. *Note – The kiosks will not be available to use if the Krimzon Guards are on alert. The alarms have to end before you will be able to access one. Following is a list of Precursor Orbs that have to be obtained by winning or getting a certain score on the mini-games. They are listed in the order that they become available. /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Ring Challenge (#1) Obtained: Complete the Find Pumping Station Valve mission Kiosk Location: In the Slums (northeast section) of Haven City. It is on the path that connects the upper area of the Slums (not the water slums) to the lower area of the Slums). It is by the border of the map. Challenge: Fly through the rings before the timer runs out. Strategy: As soon as the game starts, jump in the single-seater Zoomer provided and head for the first ring (indicated as a green dot on the map). After you fly through the first ring, you will have seven seconds to get to get to each of the next rings. Try to stay in the lower Hover Zone as much as possible, but quickly switch to the upper and then back to the lower to avoid Krimzon Guards and to grab the rings. There will be two times in this course where the ring will be on the roof of a building. Don’t be stupid like I was at first and jump out of the Zoomer to reach the roof. The Zoomer will automatically rise in the air to allow you to fly over the roof, while grabbing the ring. Reward: 3 Precursor Orbs (#16, #17, #18) \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Scatter Gun Course Obtained: After the Make delivery to Hip Hog Saloon mission Located: Gun Course Challenge: 3rd Place: 3 Orbs; 2nd Place: 3 Orbs; 1st Place: 3 Orbs Strategy: I suggest coming back to try for the trophies after you have gotten the upgrades for the Scatter Gun. Try to shoot every target. This will bring up more gold targets, boosting your score. The shockwave of the Scatter Gun makes it difficult not to hit civilians, so time your shots or position yourself so that you will only take out the robot targets. Good luck! 3rd place is 8000 points, 2nd is 10000 points, and 1st is 12000 points. Reward: 3 Orbs for each place that you beat (#19-#27) /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Orb Find (#1) Obtained: Complete the Beat Scatter Gun Course mission Kiosk Location: According to the large Haven City map available in the menu, the kiosk is located in the Slums area on the second pathway to the right of the fortress. Challenge: Find and grab the Precursor Orb before time runs out. Strategy: Press Triangle next to the kiosk to see the location of the Precursor Orb. From your location at the kiosk, take the path directly across from the kiosk. Continue straight until you come across a trench in the path. Go down inside and check under the wooden bridge for the Precursor Orb. You might want to try the Orb Find challenges after you’ve gotten the Jetboard.

When you reach the first fork, go right and then go left. It is at the very end of the walkway on the corner of the path. If you happen to get one, you could even use a Zoomer to get up there quickly. In fact, for missions like this, grab a single-seater Zoomer before you talk to Torn to get the mission. Park right by the kiosk and then talk to Torn. When you are in control, quickly jump onto the Zoomer and head for the Orb’s location. Reward: 3 Precursor Orbs (#31, #32, #33) /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Blaster Gun Course Obtained: Complete the Destroy Turrets in Sewers mission Location: Gun Course Challenge: 3rd Place: 3 Orbs; 2nd Place: 3 Orbs; 1st Place: 3 Orbs Strategy: You have to be quick to shoot as the Blaster Gun can only take down one target at once, unless you use the move Sig taught you before the course (Circle + R1, almost at the same time). Be careful not to shoot the civilians. Remember, practice helps, and so keep trying for the gold. Reward: 3 Orbs for each place you beat (#34-#42) \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Orb Find (#3) Obtained: Complete the Beat Blaster Gun Course mission Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City in the menu, this kiosk is in the port area (where all the water is) on the far right side of the curved path.

Press Triangle next to the kiosk to see the location of the Precursor Orb. From your location at the kiosk, follow the curved path towards the Hip Hog Saloon. When you reach the first fork, continue straight. At the second fork, make a right. The Precursor Orb is by the Baron’s loudspeaker.

To get the most points possible, find a long stretch of rail to grind on. Then, keep jumping in the air above the rail and pull off a trick. Land back on the rail and continue grinding and pulling off tricks. Rewards: 3 Orbs for each place you beat (#46-#54) \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Special Challenge (#1) Obtained: Complete the Win JET-Board Stadium Challenge mission Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City in the menu, this kiosk is in the Business section of town. This section is the one with the river/canal running through the middle. It is by the black box on the map underneath the green area by the stadium. Challenge: Collect all of the beacons as fast as you can. Strategy: Again, park a single-seater Zoomer by the kiosk so that you can jump on it and drive around quickly to grab the beacons. They are represented as green dots on the map. First, grab the one on the other side of the building behind the kiosk. After that, it’s up to you to pick out the path you think is best for collecting the remaining 19 beacons. You have a total time of two minutes to grab all 20, and that should be enough if you manage to grab a Zoomer or use one that you parked by the kiosk. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs (#55, #56, #57) /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Orb Find (#4) Obtained: Complete the Find Pumping Station Patrol mission Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City in the menu, this kiosk is located around the upper middle part of the water slums section. Challenge: Find and grab the Precursor Orb before time runs out. Strategy: Don’t even worry about getting a Zoomer for this one. As soon as the timer starts, fall off the side of the wooden path and search under it for the Orb. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs (#66, #67, #68) \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Special Challenge (#2) Obtained: Complete the Find Lens/Gear/Shard in Mountain Temple missions Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City in the menu, this kiosk is located in the white square just above the yellow pathway above the port area. Challenge: Drive from your location to the Underground Hideout in a minute and a half. Strategy: A Zoomer will provided at the start of the mission, so quickly jump on it and start driving. The shortest way is probably to go around the palace, over the eastern bazaar area (the gray path on the map), through the Industrial Zone, and then to the hideout in the slums. This mission will probably take you a couple tries as it is rather hard. Follow the green dot on the map if you get lost. Getting through the raised street above the bazaar is probably the hardest part, so be careful not to blow up the Zoomer as it will waste a lot of time. If you can make it off the raised street and into the Industrial Section with 30 seconds remaining, you should be able to make it back to the hideout in time. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs (#77, #78, #79) (Should be more... that was hard!) /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Orb Find (#5) Obtained: Complete the Catch Scouts in Haven Forest mission Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City in the menu, this kiosk is located in the lower yellow section towards the middle. It is under an arch. Challenge: Find and grab the Precursor Orb before time runs out. Strategy: Be sure to park a Zoomer near the kiosk before you begin the mission. Talk to Torn and then hop on the Zoomer. From your location, go towards the closest turret that’s shooting water. Follow the path by the plants growing nearby it. When you round the corner, you should see a Yakow pen. Keep on the path until you see a huge rock (not the one inside the pen). Check behind the rock for this Orb. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs (#102, #103, #104) \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Ring Challenge (#2) Obtained: Complete the Catch Scouts in Haven Forest mission Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City in the menu, this kiosk is located to the left of the entrance to the Hip Hog Saloon. Challenge: Fly through the rings before the timer runs out. Strategy: Like the first challenge, there will be a Zoomer provided. Drive through the first ring and then into all of the rings (indicated by green dots on the map). Stay in the lower Hover Zone unless you have to avoid a guard or grab a ring in the upper one. Whenever you reach the road above the bazaar, you must get out of the Zoomer, hop on your Jetboard, and then follow the green dots to get the rings below. To reach the rings in the air, jump and press R1 with the analog stick pointed forwards to do a flip. When you reach it, skate up the ramp and get the rings up here as well. Try to grab a single-seater Zoomer while you’re up here to make the last rings easier. The last two rings are up on the raised path in the Industrial section, so I suggest riding a Zoomer up the ramp and then flying off the side with a high speed so that you can grab the final ring. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs (#105, #106, #107) /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Orb Find (#6) Obtained: Complete the Intercept Tanker mission Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City in the menu, this kiosk is located in the eastern bazaar area, in the lower middle section. Challenge: Find and grab the Orb before time runs out. Strategy: Seeing as you can’t use any Zoomers, as soon as the mission begins, hop on you Jetboard. Keep checking your map of Haven City in the menu to get to the right location. It is in the eastern bazaar section, in the area where there is a black box (right below the white shape in the top left corner on the map). Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs (#108, #109, #110) \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Special Challenge (#3) Obtained: Complete the Rescue Lurkers for Brutter mission Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City in the menu, this kiosk is located in the western bazaar, in the white square just above the yellow path. Challenge: Move Underground Fighters to new locations. Strategy: As soon as the mission starts, hop on the double-seater Zoomer provided. This mission is exactly like the Shuttle Underground Fighters one, so use the same strategy and move all four fighters. However, it is a bit harder as the distances are longer and you have to travel to several different sections of the city. Switch out Zoomers if yours gets to beat up. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs (#111, #112, #113) /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Class 3 Race Obtained: Complete the Win Class 3 Race at Stadium mission Challenge: 3rd Place time: 3 Orbs; 2nd Place time: 3 Orbs; 1st Place time: 3 Orbs Strategy: The course has a shortcut you can use. When you approach the area with the large gap and blinking red lights, fly over the gap to cut some time off. Also, don’t use the turbo boosts on the curves. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs for each place you beat (#115-#123) \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Orb Find (#6) Obtained: Complete the Win Class 3 Race at Stadium mission Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City in the menu, this kiosk is located in the business section right next to the black square below the green area of the stadium.

Challenge: Find and grab the Orb before time runs out. Strategy: Make sure to park a Zoomer by the kiosk before you begin. Get on it when the mission begins and follow the path the kiosk is facing. When you reach the fork, take the path on the right. The Orb is in front of the water turret. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs (#127, #128, #129) \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Orb Find (#8) Obtained: Complete the Destroy Ship at Drill Platform mission Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City in the menu, this kiosk is located in the eastern bazaar section. It’s in the top right corner white square, in the same area where the raised road for Zoomers begins. Challenge: Find and grab the Orb before time runs out. Strategy: Hop on your Jetboard as soon as the mission starts. This one’s location is the same as the kiosk for Orb Find (#6) mission: it’s in the eastern bazaar section in the lower middle area in the corner. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs (#130, #131, #132) /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Special Challenge (#4) Obtained: Complete the Destroy 5 HellCat Cruisers mission Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City in the menu, this kiosk is located on the white pathway above the black square and water next to the Krimzon Guard Fortress. Challenge: Collect all the green eco before time runs out. Strategy: Get on your Jetboard and head to the closest green dot. Use either the Jetboard, walking on foot, or both to collect all the eco. When you pick a cluster up, sometimes it isn’t counted immediately, so collect them all as fast as you can. Also, the dots will disappear from the map so you can’t tell where the eco is. I would suggest grabbing all the eco outside of the middle structure first. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs (#141, #142, #143) \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Onin’s Game Obtained: Complete the Beat Onin Game mission Location: Onin’s Tent Challenge: Get a score of 1000 or more Strategy: Whew! It took me enough times to actually manage this one! Anyways, HIT THE LOWER SYMBOLS FIRST! If you do this, than it will make this challenge a lot easier. I suggest hitting whichever group came out the earliest first. That way, symbols won’t fall. If you have to, pause the game by pressing the Select Button. This will let you get a good look at the symbols you have to press. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs: (#144, #145, #146) /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Class 2 Race Obtained: Complete the Win Class 2 Race at Stadium mission Challenge: 3rd Place time: 3 Orbs; 2nd Place time: 3 Orbs; 1st Place time: 3 Orbs Strategy: The course has a shortcut you can use. When you see blinking red lights and columns right after them, use a turbo boost and fly between the two columns to the other side. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs for each place you beat (#152-#160) \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Orb Find (#9) Obtained: Complete the Win Class 2 Race at Stadium mission Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City in the menu, this kiosk is located in the business district, in the white area next to the curved area leading down to the black rectangle surrounded by water. Challenge: Find and grab the Orb before time runs out. Strategy: I suggest using a Zoomer for this mission but it is possible to get the Orb by just using the Jetboard. I will describe the directions according to the map of Haven City in the menu. From the kiosk, take the path northeast to your location. Turn right and head towards the series of small black shapes. Go past the bottom of the shape that looks like a little hat. When you exit out of the menu, you should see a ramp leading up to an iron door. The Orb is on the ramp. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs (#161, #162, #163) /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Orb Find (#10) Obtained: Complete the Beat Erol in Race Challenge mission Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City in the menu, this kiosk is located in the Industrial Section in the section right next to the lonely large, white square. Challenge: Find and grab the Orb before time runs out. Strategy: To grab this Orb, be sure to have a Zoomer (preferably a single-seater) before you start this mission. Ride the Zoomer up the ramp in front of you. When you reach the top, head for the path next to the one you’re on. Keep up the speed and press L1 to jump across the gap. If you’re not going to make it, press Triangle after jumping with the Zoomer to jump even higher and land on the other path. Turn left and grab the Orb on the corner. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs: (#164, #165, #166) \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Street Race (#1) Obtained: Complete the Beat Erol in Race Challenge mission Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City in the menu, this kiosk is located in the Port section near the Hip Hog Saloon. Challenge: 3rd Place time: 3 Orbs, 2nd Place time: 3 Orbs, 1st Place time: 3 Orbs Strategy: Hop on the Zoomer provided at the start of the mission. This race is almost exactly like the race with Erol. However, your opponent is much faster. My main problem here was barriers in the sharp turns such as people in the way that threw me off course and of course the turns around the palace. If you’re not worried about getting all of the Orbs and just want to get the 200 for Hero Mode, I suggest skipping these nine. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs for each place you beat (#167-#175) /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Ring Challenge (#3) Obtained: Complete the Get Life Seed in Dead Town mission Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City in the menu, this kiosk is located in the slums section, on the long path with a black square in the middle. It is on the upper section of the path. Challenge: Fly through the rings before the timer runs out. Strategy: Hop on the Zoomer provided. Watch out for any traffic and carefully go through each ring. Once you reach the Industrial Zone, immediately go up the closest ramp to reach the next ring. Use the map to see where the next ring is. After you get off the first path, you will have to get on another one a few rings later. While on this one, be sure to maintain your speed as you will have to hop over onto another path. Press L1 to hop in the Zoomer. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs (#184, #185, #186) \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Orb Find (#11) Obtained: Complete the Protect Samos in Haven Forest mission Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City found in the menu, this kiosk is located in the lowest white square of the Western Bazaar section, just above the yellow area. Challenge: Find and grab the Orb before time runs out. Strategy: Grab a Zoomer before starting the mission. From your location (facing away from the kiosk), go left, right, and then straight.

Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs (#187, #188, #189) /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Special Challenge (#5) Obtained: Complete the second Rescue Lurkers for Brutter mission Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City in the menu, this kiosk is located in the lowest white square of the Western Bazaar section, just above the yellow area. Challenge: Destroy all of the Bombots. Strategy: Again, there are three Bombots. However, you do not have to hurry to destroy them all. When you are about to shoot at one, go right next to the robot and shoot at it instead of shooting from a distance. If you shoot from a distance, it will try and shoot you with an electrical beam. It will not reach you if you are right next to it. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs (#190, #191, #192) \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Class 1 Race Obtained: Complete the Win Class 1 Race at Stadium mission Challenge: 3rd Place time: 3 Orbs; 2nd Place time: 3 Orbs; 1st Place time: 3 Orbs Strategy: There are two shortcuts that you can use in this race.

Challenge: 3rd Place Time: 3 Orbs; 2nd Place Time: 3 Orbs; 1st Place Time: 3 Orbs Strategy: Go to the bridge connecting the circular areas in the water to find your Zoomer waiting. Although Torn says this race is harder, I found it easier. You do not have to go through every ring, but they give a nice speed boost. The other racer seems to give up after you pass him as he will not drive past you as long as you maintain your speed. The only hard part of this challenge is to stay on the path. Do not fall into the water or else you will lose. The Gold is very easy to get on this race. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs for each place you beat (#206-#214) \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Orb Find (#12) Obtained: Complete the Win Class 1 Race at Stadium mission Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City in the menu, this kiosk is located on the path connecting the Slums with the Business District.

Challenge: Collect all the dark eco before time runs out. Strategy: Come to this mission with as empty a dark ego gauge as possible. This way, the eco will be attracted to you. Hop on your Jetboard and collect all 30 blobs of eco. If you do manage to fill up your gauge, you’ll have to physically touch the eco to collect it. This mission is rather easy, so you shouldn’t have many problems. Rewards: 3 Precursor Orbs (#233, #234, #235) \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\ Orb Find (#13) Obtained: Complete the game Kiosk Location: According to the map of Haven City in the menu, this kiosk is located on the northern path by the palace.

Make sure that you’re in the upper Hover Zone. Go to the right of the square and drive along the right side at full speed. When you see the torch, drive towards it. Just before you crash, jump out of the Zoomer to land in the water by the torch to get the Orb.

Anyways, I would suggest completing this once you’ve gotten enough Orbs for the Unlimited Ammo secret. Start the course and just shoot at any robots you see. If you have the Unlimited Ammo equipped, then don’t be afraid to just hold down R1 and shoot any robot in sight. Just be careful not to shoot any citizens. The path just before the end of the course is filled with robots and no citizens, so let loose. There are many hidden gold robots in this section, so hold down R1 to get them all. Rewards: 3 Orbs for each place you beat (#242-#250) /////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// Peace Maker Gun Course Obtained: Get 105 Precursor Orbs and the Peace Maker Location: Gun Course Challenge: 3rd Place: 3 Orbs; 2nd Place: 3 Orbs, 1st Place: 3 Orbs Strategy: I’m including the Vulcan Fury and the Peace Maker Gun Courses last, as they will not be available unless you collect the certain amount of Precursor Orbs and the Orbs are not necessary to complete the story. Anyways, I would suggest completing this once you’ve gotten enough Orbs for the Unlimited Ammo secret. Start the course. I suggest just charging up the Peacemaker and shooting at anything you see, except for the citizens. The new, big robots can only be destroyed with the Peace Maker, so remember to charge it up to kill more than one enemy.
