OVERVIEW------------------------------------------------- / \ / ============== A.01: Review ============== X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse is proof of the old adage, bigger is not always better. Compared to XML1, XML2 has more mutants with more powers fighting through bigger areas against bigger bosses. About the only thing that's really an improvement; however, are the bigger bosses. Raven Software tweaked the graphics--at least you can count the fingers on the hands of the characters during cutscenes--but the locales tend to be annoyingly similar. And, the more you play, the more you realize a lot of the "extras" added to the game are just filler. More collecting X number of items. More long, meandering hallways built by Frank Lloyd Wright's insane twin filled with cannon fodder that must be disposed of using the even greater number of powers at your disposal, which leads to lots and lots of reading and experimenting and calculating...and other complexity. Admittedly, there are some nice touches. There's a bit more variety in the powers now, especially with Xtremes. The bosses are even more fearsome and even some of the early bosses can lay waste your entire team a few times before you figure them out. The story is pretty good and will hold your interest, though it will be tried many times as you slink your way through yet more mindless filler. Overall, this game rates about the same as the first. For every improvement, there's a disappointment. Still, in the end, this is one of the best superhero titles as well as one of the best action RPGs to come down the pike this year. =========== A.02: FAQ =========== Q. How do I unlock Deadpool/Iron Man/Professor X/Pyro/Sabretooth? A. If you have the PC version of XML2, Pyro and Sabretooth will be available to you at the first Xtraction point in the Genosha Sanctuary. If you don't have the PC version of XML2, you're out of luck. Deadpool is unlocked when you beat the game for the first time. You can unlock Professor X by collecting all Danger Room discs and beating all the Danger Room scenarios. Iron Man is a bit more complicated. In each of the five Acts, you can find up to six homing beacons. Find four of them and a secret Blink Portal will open back at your base. Go through the portal and defeat the enemies. In Acts 1 through 4, you recover a piece of Iron Man's armor. In Act 5, you rescue Iron Man himself and can then use him in the current and future games. Q. Should I get this for PC or one of the consoles? A. It's up to you. XML2 is not that demanding on PC hardware, so even mid- range systems from two or three years ago can probably run it. If you can play newer games such as Dungeon Siege II or Ultimate Spider-Man, XML2 will run like butter. The PC offers two more playable characters (albeit ones very like Sunfire and Wolverine), much shorter load times and better graphics. The downside is a complicated control scheme unless you have a decent dual-analog gamepad and possible bugs or conflicts with your hardware. Oh, yeah, the PC version is $10 (US) cheaper. Still, it's your call. Q. Can I play as ? A. In the Skirmish mode, you can choose various enemy mutants. You can put enemy mutants and some non-playable mutants on your team in Story mode, but it involves hex editing your savegame, so you'll need to look elsewhere for that info. Q. What's the correct answer to ? A. See Section H of this guide. Q. What's the best setup for my gamepad? A. A complete overview of the controls is in Section B.01, including how to set up your gamepad to mimic the control layout of the consoles. Q. How do I hit combos? A. Section B.03 covers combat in all its permutations. Q. How should I level up ? A. Section D of this guide covers all 20 playable characters, with complete lists of skills and recommended leveling procedures. Q. What's the highest level for the X-Men? A. 99, and, even if you get that high, you still won't be able to buy every rank in every skill. Q. Is this just like XML1? A. There are a lot of similarities; however, it is different enough-- especially in the heroes and their skills, that you'll need some time to get used to it. Still, it plays close enough to the original that you can jump in and start killing bad guys right away. Q. How many savegames can I have? A. The PC version of XML2 allows 10 savegames. They are stored in My Documents\Activision\X-Men Legends 2\Save You should rotate at least three or four saves in case you mess up real bad. =============== A.03: Glossary =============== ATK: Attack rating; measures how easy it is for a character to successfully land a melee attack on another character Boost: Skills that are buffs Buff: Any enhancement to a character's offensive or defensive stats or abilities Debuff: Any penalty to a character's offensive or defensive stats or abilities DEF: Defense rating; measures how hard it is for a character to be successfully hit by a melee attack EP: Energy points HP: Hit points or health Mob: Any hostile character or characters Skills: The variable abilities of all X-Men. Skills come in several types: * Ability: adds an ability to the character's repertoire (such as flying) * Beam: an instantaneous, straight-line projection of energy * Blast: an explosion of energy * Boost: enhances offensive/defensive capabilities * Charge: a special melee attack that covers a large distance * Debuff: penalizes enemies' abilities * Melee: an enhanced hand-to-hand attack * Passive: a skill that provides a continuous effect * Projectile: fires a "bullet" that moves at variable speeds, may also track the target, various damage types * Radial: creates an effect in a circle around the character * Special: Any skill that does not fall into one of the other categories * Trap: Creates an effect that damages enemies for a limited time without supervision from the character (e.g. Storm's Whirlwind or Iron Man's Auto Turret) * Xtreme: Skills that can only be used with Xtreme tokens XP: Experience points / \ /--MEN LEGENDS II----------------------------------------------------- \/ /\---Section B. GAMEPLAY------------------------------------------------- / \ / ================ B.01: Controls ================ B.01.a) Control Layout ---------------------- The following table lists the default keyboard controls as well as recommended gamepad controls. XML2 recognizes most gamepads, but does not automatically set up the controls. You will have to do that through the game's Options>Advanced menu. +--------------------+--------------------+--------------------+ | Action | Key | Gamepad | |--------------------+--------------------+--------------------| | Move Forward | W | Left Analog Up | | Move Backward | S | Left Analog Down | | Move Left | A | Left Analog Left | | Move Right | D | Left Analog Right | | Attack/Power 1 | Keypad 4 | Button 1 | | Smash/Power 2 | Keypad 6 | Button 2 | | Jump/Xtreme | Spacebar | Button 4 | | Use/Boost | E | Button 3 | | Use Powers | Keypad 5 | Right Shoulder | | Energy Pack | O | Right Trigger | | Health Pack | P | Left Trigger | | Call Allies | C | Left Shoulder | | Character Up | Up Arrow | D-Pad Up | | Character Down | Down Arrow | D-Pad Down | | Character Left | Left Arrow | D-Pad Left | | Character Right | Right Arrow | D-Pad Right | | Map Toggle | M | | | Start/Pause | ESC | Button 9 | | Stats Menu | F1 | Button 10 | | Camera Up | I | Right Analog Up | | Camera Down | K | Right Analog Down | | Camera Left | J | Right Analog Left | | Camera Right | L | Right Analog Right | | Screenshot | F11 | | | Talk | T | | | Walk | Left Shift | | | Switch Character | Q | | | Attack Object | Left CTRL | | | Rotate Camera | V | | | Bind Power | B | | | Quick Power | ` (backtick) | | | Power 1 through 11 | 1 through - (dash) | | +--------------------+--------------------+--------------------+ Here's an (admittedly crude) representation of a generic, 10-button, dual- analog stick controller: ____________ ____________ / LS______ \ / ______RS \ __|__/__LT__\__|_____________|__/__RT__\__|__ / _ \ / _| |_ (4) \ / [_ D _] (3) (2) \ / |_| (9) (10) (1) \ / _ _ \ ( ,~' '~, ,~' '~, ) \ ( LA )_________( RA ) / \ |'~,_,~' '~,_.~'| / \ | | / \ | | / \ | | / \ | | / \ | | / \ | | / \ | | / \____| |____/ D = D-pad LA/RA = Left and Right analog thumbsticks LT/RT = Left and Right triggers (small shoulder buttons) LS/RS = Left and Right (large) shoulder buttons The game may refer to the triggers as buttons 5 and 6; and it may refer to the shoulder buttons as buttons 7 and 8. Your gamepad may have additional buttons, or it may have six thumb-placed buttons on the right face and only two shoulder buttons. The thumbsticks may also be buttons. Etc. The variations aren't endless, but there are more than can be reasonably accounted for here. However, if your controller is roughly like the one pictured here and you bind controls as suggested in the above table, it will handle pretty much just like XML and XML2 on the consoles. **CONTROLLER QUICK-TIP** Bind your keyboard controls to the secondary slots and bind your gamepad controls to the primary slots. Then the game hints will refer to your gamepad rather than keyboard. For example, instead of being told to press E to activate an Xtraction point, you'll be told to press Btn 3. Not having to carry a translation table in your head makes gameplay much smoother. B.01.b) Using the Controls -------------------------- ATTACK & SMASH These are your two different melee attack buttons; Smash is a more powerful attack. You can string them together in different ways to create attack combos (not the same thing as Power Combos). E.g. Attack - Attack - Smash is a heavy uppercut. You can learn different combos in the Freshman level Danger Room courses. Attack and Smash also execute offensive powers when you press and hold Use Powers. You can choose which two powers to assign the two buttons from the team management screens. USE/BOOST This is the generic "use" key for all kinds of game situations: open doors, talk to NPCs, use computer consoles, pick up & throw items or enemies. Etc. This is also the key to which you bind Boost and Debuff powers. JUMP/XTREME Pressing Jump once causes your character to jump. Press Jump + Smash to execute a power jump (slightly longer, higher jump with an attack at the end). Some characters can fly, if ranks are purchased in the Flight skill. To fly, press Jump, then press Jump again while in the air. While flying, press Use to fly lower and Jump to fly higher. You can also press Smash to execute a dive-bombing attack. **NOTE** In XML2, fliers cannot carry other characters. Teleporters (Nightcrawler and Deadpool) will teleport in the direction you push the control pad if you press Jump while the character is in the air. Iceman will use his Ice Slide if you press Jump in mid-air (if you have purchased ranks of the Ice Slide skill). Toad can double-jump by pressing Jump while he is in mid-air (no special skills required). Xtreme powers are bound to the Jump button. USE ENERGY/HEALTH PACK Press one of these buttons to cause your currently selected character to use an energy or health pack, restoring some (or all) energy or health. Characters controlled by the AI can be set to use health packs under certain conditions (see Team Management Screens below). AI-controlled characters will never use energy packs. All characters regenerate energy. Some character skills (and some equipment) regenerate health. All characters have a chance of getting double the normal amount of health or energy from a pack. See the Team Management Screens - Stats section below. You begin the game with the ability to carry 10 of each type of pack. You gain +5 carrying capacity with each 10 levels (i.e. as soon as any one character reaches the next 10-level mark: 10, 20, 30, etc.) to a maximum of 55 of each pack at level 90. You can gain 12 additional units carrying capacity by finding all data discs in the game. Each pack restores 33% of the character's maximum energy or health. There is a chance (based on the character's Body score for health packs and Focus score for energy packs) the character will receive 66% of energy or health from the pack. CALL ALLIES Issues a command to your AI-controlled teammates to come attack your current target (or reform around you if no targets are nearby). The AI- controlled characters will attack with the power specified on their AI screen. (Or, in some cases, the AI may choose a different offensive power, based on the range to the target.) Spamming the Call button is the only way to hit Power Combos in single-player. Pressing Call Allies also gives a verbal cue so other player-controlled characters (when playing multiplayer) can come to your aid. USE POWERS Pressing Use Powers brings up the Powers menu, which shows your bound powers in this arrangement: Jump Use Smash Attack Press and hold this key, then press the appropriate key (Attack, Smash, Use, Jump) to execute a mutant power. Attack and Smash are offensive powers, Use is a Boost power and Jump is an Xtreme power. If you set up your gamepad as specified above, this configuration will match the face buttons on the right of your controller: 4 3 2 1 You can bind powers to keys through the Skills page in the character stats (see below). If you have more powers than can be bound to keys (e.g. you have two Boost/Debuff powers and there is only one Boost key), you can change bound powers on the fly: Press and hold Use Powers, then press a character selection key in the direction of the key to which you want to bind a different power. The game will cycle through the available powers for that button. For example: You have both Absorption and Energy Fury for Bishop. Currently, Absorption is bound to the Use key. * Press and hold Use Powers (e.g. Right Shoulder button) * Press Left Character Select (e.g. Left D-pad) * The Energy Fury icon will replace Absorption on the powers menu * Release Use Powers * Energy Fury is now bound to the Use key START/PAUSE Brings up the game menu. MAP TOGGLE Switches the overhead map between small, large and hidden. On the PC, the small overhead map works quite well. SCREENSHOT Saves a .bmp screenshot to: My Documents\Activision\X-Men Legends 2\Screenshots The game will only save 256 screenshots (XMenLegends0000.bmp to XMenLegends0255.bmp) and then will start over at 0000, even if it means overwriting earlier images. TALK Opens chat window for online multiplayer chatting. WALK Slows down the movement of your characters. BIND POWER Allows you to bind two additional "quick powers" to your mouse buttons. Press and hold 'B', select the power and then press either the left or right mouse button. To use the power, press and hold backtick (`) and press the left or right mouse button. (The backtick key is immediately left of the number '1' key on US English keyboards.) If you're using a gamepad, you probably won't use this feature. POWER KEYS 1 THROUGH 11 You can immediately execute any power by pressing the numbers 1 through 0 and the - (dash) key (directly right of the '0' key). Keys 1 through 6 are bound to offensive powers in ascending order of power. Keys 7 and 8 are the Xtreme powers. Keys 9 to - are Boosts in ascending order of power. You cannot change the binding of these keys. Some heroes will not have 11 powers. If you're using a gamepad, you probably won't use this feature. B.01.c) The Game Menu --------------------- The following options are available on the game menu (press Start/Pause while playing): OBJECTIVES See all active and finished tasks received in the current or previous Acts. TEAM MANAGEMENT Brings up the team management menu, same as pushing the Stats Menu key. BLINK PORTAL Opens a portal from your current location to the home base in the current Act. This option is only available after you rescue Blink at the beginning of Act 1. Blink Portals persist through reloads, so you can, effectively, save and quit any time. Blink must rest for five minutes after creating a portal, so you can't use them completely indiscriminately. MAP [SMALL/LARGE/HIDDEN] Toggles through the different overhead map sizes (or turns it off). AUTOMAP Leaves the game paused and turns on the large overhead map. You can move and rotate the map so you can get an idea of the current area's layout, look for rooms you might have missed, etc. OPTIONS Opens the game options menu. PLAYERS Opens the player management menu, where you can add or remove players for co-operative play. LOAD GAME Loads a savegame. QUIT GAME Quits to the main menu. B.01.d) Xtraction Points ------------------------ Xtraction points must be activated by walking over them. Once activated, Xtraction points allow you to do three things: 1) Xtract--instantly teleport to any other Xtraction point you have activated. 2) Change Team--bring up the Change Team menu to replace/revive members of your current team. 3) Save Game--save your game to one of the ten save slots available. Note that options like visiting the danger room or shopping have been removed since all you have to do is Xtract back to base to do those things. (You can even Blink Portal back to base at any time, without using an Xtraction point.) ============================= B.02: Team Management Screens ============================= **CONTROLS NOTE** Messing around in the team management screens is easier with the keyboard-- especially since, for some reason, menu commands are displayed with keyboard controls, regardless of your primary button configuration. Default keyboard controls are listed here. Put your gamepad down for a minute or two and use the keyboard. Press the Stats Menu button or choose Change Team at an Xtraction point or press ESC and choose the Team Management option to bring up the main team management menu. The main menu shows your current four-man team (or less if one or more has died). Select a character using the movement or character controls, then: * Press Space to open that character's stat screens. * Press E to remove that character (Change Team screen only) * Press J to replace that character (Change Team screen only) * Press O to apply a different costume (skin) (Change Team screen only - not available for all characters) * Press ESC or ENTER to end the session, accept all changes and return to the game (or game menu if you used the Team Management menu option) If you choose to Replace a character, a menu of available heroes appears. Scroll through the menu using up/down movement keys to highlight the hero you want. If that hero previously fell in battle, there is a cost to revive him or her. This cost varies based on your character level and is shown next to the character's portrait. Press J to revive the character. Press J to place a character in the current position on the team. Press ESC to quit the replacement menu. Note: you can also bring up stat screens (press Space) of characters on the replacement menu. Thus, from the Change Team menu, you can manage the stats, skills and equipment for all playable characters. There are four stat screens: Stats, Skills, Gear and AI. To switch screens, press left or right movement buttons or character select buttons or click a tab. Underneath the tabs, on all screens, is the current character's name, XP progress through the current level (displayed as a simple bar graph, no XP numbers are actually shown) and current level. B.02.a) Stats ------------- At the top of the stats screens are listed your four abilities as well as stats based on those abilities. Underneath is detail information about the currently selected stat. All information displayed on this screen includes bonuses from skills and equipped items. Your four ability scores are: BODY Increases your health points (HP) and chance for double health from potions. Next to your current Body score are your current and max HP. To add a point to Body, select it and press J. To remove a point from Body that has been added during this session, select it and press E. Health is calculated as: 25 + 5 per level + 3 per Body Body also affects your natural resistances. Your resistances are listed on the right side of the screen. In order they are: Energy resistance Mental resistance Radiation resistance Elemental resistance FOCUS Increases your energy points (EP), energy regeneration, melee mental damage, and chance for double energy from potions. Next to your Focus score are your current and max EP. To add a point to Focus, select it and press J. To remove a point from Focus that has been added during this session, select it and press E. Energy is calculated as: 30 + 4 per level + 2 per Focus STRIKE Increases the damage you do with melee attacks. Next to your Strike score is shown your melee damage. The range before the slash is standard Attack damage. The range after the slash is Smash attack damage. You get a damage bonus of +2% per Strike. To add a point to Strike, select it and press J. To remove a point from Strike that has been added during this session, select it and press E. SPEED Increases your attack rating (ATK) and defense rating (DEF). Next to your Speed score are your ATK and DEF. ATK: Increases the chance to hit with melee attacks (5 per Speed - 35) DEF: Increases your ability to dodge incoming melee attacks (3 per Speed) To add a point to Speed, select it and press J. To remove a point from Speed that has been added during this session, select it and press E. B.02.b) Skills -------------- If you played XML1, this will be the biggest change as characters have a greater selection of powers. At first, the selection seems overwhelming, but some powers are just stronger versions of other powers. For example, Storm gets Lightning Strike and Chain Lightning. While they are separate powers--you can continue leveling and using Strike even after leveling Chain--they're still basically the same effect. One big change is two Xtreme powers per character (most characters, anyway) rather than one. Also, the Xtreme powers have ranks just like all the other powers. There's also been some shuffling of roles (Storm no longer has Leadership), and more reasonable allocation of skills (only melee-focused characters get Critical Strike). Unlocked skills show a series of boxes representing the ranks available. Like so: [][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][] Ranks you have bought are colored in, ranks available to be bought are highlighted in white. All powers show 20 ranks; however, some powers don't allow 20 ranks. These powers show "locked" boxes on the left: [/][/][/][/][/][][][][][][][][][][][][][][][] Why did the developer team do this? Especially when some skills with fewer than 20 ranks simply show fewer than 20 boxes? The world may never know. Anyway, select a skill and press 'J' to buy a rank. Available points are shown at the bottom of the skills page. All ranks cost one skill point. To subtract a rank bought in this session, press 'E'. Once you Accept the changes (by exiting the team management screens), you can't subtract the points. There doesn't appear to be any kind of Cancel command, so if you want to delete your changes, you'll have to do it manually before pressing ESC or ENTER. To assign a power to a power key (Attack, Smash, Use or Jump) select the power, press 'P', then press the appropriate button. Remember, only non- Xtreme offensive powers on Attack and Smash; only non-Xtreme Boost or Debuff powers on Use and only Xtreme powers on Jump. B.02.c) Gear ------------ At the top of the Gear screen are your ability scores and related stats (as shown on the Stats screen). This allows you to examine the effects of equipping and unequipping items. Below your stats are your three equipment slots and whatever items you currently have in those slots: belts, gloves and armor. Below that is the current inventory of unequipped items. To remove an equipped item, select it and press E. To equip an item to a slot, select the slot, press J to move to the inventory list, select the item you want to equip and press J. If you already had an item equipped in that slot, it will be swapped with the new item. To drop an item on the ground either from your gear slot or from the inventory list, press P. B.02.d) AI ---------- The AI screen shows the current settings for this character when controlled by the computer. AI HEAL WHEN FULL If set to Yes, when walking over a health pack and any current team member needs health (no matter how small) and you have a full complement of health packs, your characters will use health packs and pick up the new one. Set this to Yes. AI HEAL Governs how the AI uses health packs. A change on any one character's sheet affects all characters, not just the individual. There are four rules: Never: the AI never uses health packs < 20%: the AI uses a health pack if the character's health falls below 20 per cent of maximum and there are more than two health packs in inventory < 40%: the AI uses a health pack when the character's health falls below 40 per cent of maximum and there are more than two health packs in inventory < 80%: the AI uses a health pack when the character's health falls below 80 per cent of maximum and there are more than two health packs in inventory The recommended settings are 40% and 80%. Never is not a good idea unless you intend to rapidly switch characters while in combat in order to use health packs. Less than 20% can cause a character to die from massive damage before getting low enough to use a health pack. Less than 40% is a good all-around rule that will keep your teammates alive while saving on your store of health packs. Less than 80% will cause the AI to use health packs far too rapidly in the early game; but, you can switch to it once you are able to hold 20 or more health packs (at level 20). AI MODE Sets how the character should react in combat, especially when you call for help. There are three levels of AI for each character. Aggressive: the character responds immediately to attack Normal: the character waits for an opportunity before attacking Defensive: the X-character only attacks if he or she is attacked There's little use in this game for Defensive AI. Melee characters should be set to Aggressive, the remaining characters can be set to Normal. AI SKILL This is the mutant power the AI will use when you call for an attack using the Call Allies button. See the individual character listings in Section C for recommendations. AI AUTO-TRAIT, AI AUTO-SKILL, AI AUTO-EQUIP Controls whether the AI will automatically level up stats or skills and automatically equip characters with new equipment. While micro-managing equipment is not fun, the Auto-Equip function has one very nasty habit: it seems to operate only on item level (i.e. minimum character level required to use the equipment). This becomes a problem when you start getting the character-specific items from the Challenge Danger Room courses. The Auto-Equip function routinely removes the no-minimum- level uber unique item and replaces it with a much less powerful minimum- level-required item. Still, Auto-Equip removes a lot of the tedium involved in character management. You're best off leaving it on and keeping an eye on active characters that have their unique Challenge course reward. Just re-equip it every time you find the game has taken it off. Fortunately, Auto-Equip only considers active characters, so your work is minimal. Stats (traits) in XML2 are a bit less important than in XML1. Because of the number of bonuses you can get (from tech stations, Danger Room awards and equipment), there's no need to micromanage your stats. Turn Auto-Trait on during the tutorial stage and forget about them. Auto-Skill is good for giving you a flavor for each character. On your first run-through, you may wish to turn it on, at least until you get to level 20 or 25. Auto-Skill tends to spread skill points around, but, this will give you a good idea of what works and what doesn't and what is just plain annoying. Once you've got a feel for each character, go to Forge or Beast and purchase the option to redistribute skill points, then turn Auto- Skill off. ============== B.03: Combat ============== Combat, and lots of it, is the name of the game in X-Men Legends II. Each character has two primary melee attacks: Attack and Smash. By hitting an opponent with different sequences, you can perform a special attack that does more damage. Some of the special attacks are: - Triple Hit: Attack, Attack, Attack - Knockback: Attack, Smash, Smash, Smash - Stun: Smash, Attack, Smash, Smash While some characters can be effective just unloading melee attacks on the bad guys, the best way to win fights is to use your mutant powers. Even better, you should learn how to hit Power Combos--two mutant powers used on one opponent at the same time. Hitting combos in multiplayer requires communication between the players and a good sense of the timing of each mutant power being used. Wolverine's Feral Slash, for example, is much faster than Storm's Lightning Strike. If a player controlling Wolverine wants to hit a combo with a player controlling Storm, the Wolverine player must watch the timing of the LS and initiate the Slash immediately before the lightning hits. In single player, hitting combos is part luck and part skill. In combat, you spam the Call Allies button to have them attack your opponent with their mutant powers. Again, timing is an issue, but you don't have much control over when the computer AI will actually unleash its power(s). Experiment to find different teams that work well for hitting combos. Make sure you always have either a character with Leadership on the team. This skill adds bonus experience points earned from an enemy on whom you used a combo, and it increases the critical strike chance for the entire team. You do not have to actually defeat the enemy with the combo. As long as you used a combo on that enemy at some point, you get the bonus XP. You can also score combos even if you are just fighting hand-to-hand; just keep pressing Call Allies while you're punching to keep your teammates blasting away with their powers. There's even a "Batter Up!" combo that is scored when one character hits with a strike sequence at the same time another character hits with another strike sequence. You can also score Batter Up! combos by picking an enemy up (by hand or with powers) and flinging the foe into the rest of the team. There is a small window of opportunity surrounding each power when you can cause a combo. Powers that temporarily stun your opponents are especially good for combos as you can hit with the second power any time while the foe is stunned. Area-of-effect powers also give good chances for hitting combos as multiple enemies are affected. Once you get to level 15 and purchase Xtreme powers for your X-Men, you can use these powers by pressing Use Powers + Jump. You can hit super power combos by hitting a combo with one or two Xtreme powers. Xtreme powers require Xtreme icons, which will display at the bottom center of the screen. In order to fill these icons, you need to collect Xtreme tokens the same way you collect health packs, etc. Each token fills one-quarter of an icon, so you must collect four tokens to get one full icon and use an Xtreme power once. The Xtreme power icons are shared by all X-Men. Thus, if you have one icon filled, and Bishop uses Big Bang, Deadpool cannot then immediately follow with Nitrogen Blast until you pick up more tokens. At level 15, you can have one filled Xtreme icon. At level 20, you can have two filled icons. At level 25, you can have three; at level 30, you can have four; and, at level 35 and after, you can have five filled icons. Xtreme powers are most useful for crowd control. Try to avoid using Xtreme powers against bosses, as most Xtreme powers are large area-of-effect powers that are intended to damage multiple enemies. Against a single enemy, they're a lot less powerful. Use focused, single-opponent powers and combos against bosses. Another method of dealing with your enemies is to throw things at them. A character with the Might skill can pick up and throw cars, trucks and other really heavy things. Any character can throw barrels or crates; the exploding barrels are especially nice. As you attack enemies, keep an eye on the enemy status bar in the top center of the screen. This shows your opponent's health status and any damage resistances possessed by the enemy. For example, some enemies are physical resistant. This means attacks causing physical damage are less effective. Team up on the foe with energy and mental attacks. The same goes for opponents listed as mental resistant, etc. Finally, if you can, avoid combat on bridges (especially bridges built by an X-Man) or near ledges. The computer AI is just stupid enough to occasionally send your teammates jumping into the abyss after enemies that have fallen over the edge. That's a bad thing. Combat in XML2 is fast, furious and goes on forever; so, you'll get plenty of practice in taking care of the bad guys. If, for some strange reason, you can't get enough combat, try the Danger Room. ===================== B.04: Item Collecting ===================== Your primary task in X-Men Legends is defeating the bad guys. Your secondary task is scrounging for loot...that is, collecting valuable equipment. You get most of your swag from drops by your enemies; however, you can also get a lot of loot from destroying the scenery. Most of the items you will collect are health packs and energy packs. Since these resources get used up frequently (especially in the early game), it's a good thing the game drops a lot. Later in the game, as your energy regeneration improves, you can start selling off some of the energy packs you pick up, since you don't need them as much and so many of them drop anyway. Keep the health packs, they don't show up quite as often. You also need to look out for tech bits, the X-Men Legends 2 equivalent of money. You use tech bits to buy equipment from Forge and Beast and revive fallen mutants-in-arms. Once you hit 15th level and can use Xtreme powers, you'll start picking up the Xtreme tokens you need to fill your Xtreme power icons. You'll also pick up a lot of gear that improve stats. In order to avoid slowing the game down to a crawl, it is recommended you turn Auto-Equip on; however, if you like to micromanage... All allies share the inventory, so any hero can equip anything that's been picked up, unless another character is already wearing the item. There is a limit of 20 unequipped items that can be held in inventory. If you try to pick something up and get the message "Inventory is full", you have three options: 1) Ignore the item on the ground because it is underpowered for your current level; 2) Return to base and sell unused items to Forge or Beast or put them in the hero stash; or, 3) Drop some of your current inventory on the ground. In order to keep your inventory from filling up, re-evaluate your equipment and sell unneeded items at least every other mission. **NOTE** There's a game-stopping bug in the game related to memory dumps and the number of items in your hero stash. Keep your hero stash at 30 items or less! There are also many bonus items that are hidden throughout the game. If you thought there were lots of hidden items in XML, wait until you get a load of XML2. Here's the quick hit list: Comic books: there are 15 of them. They don't confer any stat bonuses, alas, but they are still cool to look at. Sketch books: there are 16 sketch books, each unlocks 3 pieces of concept art. Tech stations: like the skill/stat point bonuses from XML, although there are more of them. Each tech station gives a bonus to the one character that uses the station. They provide permanent stat boosts, health and energy increases, etc. There are 30 tech stations scattered throughout the game. Weapon cache: XML2's version of the uber-loot-producing treasure chest. Each weapon cache contains tech bits, health and energy packs and rare or unique equipment. Danger Room Discs: as in XML1, you have to find these in order to play the scenarios. Find them all (and beat all the scenarios) and Professor X is yours to manipulate to your will... Data discs: Collect four data discs and you get a bonus to your health or energy pack carrying capacity. There are twenty discs in all. * +2 energy packs for the first set of four data discs * +2 health packs for the second set of four data discs * +4 energy packs for the third set of four data discs * +4 health packs for the fourth set of four data discs * +6 health and +6 energy packs for the fifth set of four data discs Section F of this guide will fill you in on all the locations of these goodies. You can also find the location of all the Danger Room Discs in Section G. And, there are load screens and cinematics that can be unlocked through normal gameplay. Finally, beating the game once entitles you to start a new game+, which gives you all characters (including unlocked characters) at their endgame level. If you beat the game on Normal difficulty, you can play at the Hard difficulty. =================== B.05: Using the Map =================== The map is an essential part of success in XML2. Without the map, stages can become confusing and impossible to navigate. With the map, you can always see in which direction your next objective lies. The stages are very linear, but some of them can twist around enough to leave you confused unless you can see where you are and where you are going on your map. The map contains a number of useful markers to help you find your way through each stage: A blue X in a circle marks an Xtraction point. A red X marks a stage objective. It might be a control panel that needs to be operated, a person who needs to be rescued or a device that needs to be destroyed. Your primary goal in each stage is to go to each red X and do whatever needs to be done. Then you head for the exit and the next stage. A yellow double-arrow in a half-circle marks the exits from the area. Once all objectives have been cleared, find and use the exit. A yellow exclamation mark identifies an NPC you need to talk to. Red arrows show the direction of objectives too far away to display on the map. Yellow arrows show the direction of NPCs too far away to display on the map. The map comes in two sizes: large and small. It can also be hidden. Unlike XML1, the large map shows no more area than the small map--it just shows the same area overlaid on the entire screen. Thus, on the PC, at least, the small map works just fine. The small map is the default when you start the game. To change the map size, use the Map toggle key or the Map option in the game menu. There's also an auto-map, available from the game menu. This is a map of the entire area (whether you've cleared it or not) and can be scrolled and rotated around the screen (the game is paused while the auto-map is on). Use this to get a better idea of the direction in which you need to go to reach your objectives. ========================== B.06: Hints, Tips & Tricks ========================== Always have on your team a bridge builder, a flier, a teleporter and a character with Might. (There's no need, as in XML1, to have a welder.) Magneto and Jean Grey double as both fliers and bridge builders; if you level up Levitation or Telekinesis (respectively), they can also function as the Mighty character. This will allow your team to overcome any obstacle encountered during the game. Don't forget about the Blink Portal. It effectively allows you to make your own Xtraction point in almost any area of the game (boss arenas and the Perimeter Platforms area of Act 4 are notable exceptions). Stick with one or two teams. The amount of experience gained by inactive characters is much less than it was in XML1. If you constantly switch teams around, your characters are going to begin to lag badly behind the mobs as you progress through the game. Acts 4 and 5 will be especially hard if you've been playing musical X-Men. Use Acts 1 and 2 to figure out your favorite characters and then stick with them. Have one (or more) characters with Leadership on your team to increase the experience gained. Magneto (who can also fly, build bridges and Levitate massive objects) has Leadership, as does Cyclops and Professor X (once he's unlocked). You can buy, from Forge or Beast, the ability to redistribute skill points. For any single character, this costs 10,000 tech bits the first time; 100,000 tech bits the second time and 1,000,000 tech bits the third time. So, effectively, you could, one time, redistribute skill points for all your main characters. Take advantage of this option (you'll have plenty of tech bits). Let the computer auto-level skill points for a while until you have a good idea how the characters play, then redistribute the skill points as you like and turn off the Auto-Skill AI. As in XML1, mutant powers are king. Straight-up melee works fine in Acts 1 and 2, and even for a little while in Act 3. But you will soon find yourself relying more and more on powers, even for your tanks. Thus, Focus is the prime stat, just as it was in XML1. For ranged characters, prefer Focus over Body, Body over Strike and Strike over Speed. For melee characters, prefer Focus over Strike, Strike over Speed and Speed over Body. Once you start getting the unique equipment from the Challenge courses in the Danger Room, turn off Auto-Equip AI or be prepared to constantly re- equip the special items to your characters. The Auto-Equip AI prefers lower-stat equipment with a higher level requirement to the special equipment given as a reward for a Challenge course. The Fastball Special where a character with Might throws Wolverine into a group of mobs is present in XML2 as it was in XML1. It's just as much of a toy, but you can do it if you want (though it means having two tanks on your team, which reduces the variety). Having a character with a highly destructive radial power makes breaking containers and walls much quicker. Some suggestions are Iceman's Arctic Burst, Sunfire's Fiery Geyser, Pyro's Flaming Pillar, Colossus' Bounding Smash, etc. Teammates will automatically "jump" to your location if you leave them behind. This means you can teleport through walls or fly over pits and your teammates--even if they can't teleport or fly, will just show up. / \ /--MEN LEGENDS II----------------------------------------------------- \/ /\---Section C. WALKTHROUGH---------------------------------------------- / \ / ============== C.01: Overview ============== Here are some things to watch out for while moving through each stage: C.01.a) Obstacles ----------------- You will frequently find your path blocked by some obstacle. There are usually several ways around the obstacle, some more efficient than others. GAPS Broken bridges, catwalks and deep chasms will occasionally dot your path. There's a variety of methods to get around these. The easiest way is to build a bridge. Iceman (Freeze Blast), Jean Grey (Telekinesis) and Magneto (Levitation) can all build bridges. Just target the blue X at the gap and unleash the appropriate power. FORCE FIELDS You will occasionally find your way blocked by energy force fields. Some force fields have a control panel nearby that can turn them off. If that is the case, have Nightcrawler (or Deadpool) teleport through the field and turn it off; otherwise, you have to go around it--typically by stepping into a side room and bashing your way through the wall. Some force fields remain up until you complete your objectives in the area. Other, unique, obstacles will be covered in the walkthrough. C.01.b) Energy Saps ------------------- There are machines in various stages that sap your mutant energy. The saps in XML1 were destructible, the saps in XML2 frequently are not. However, they are more in the nature of a trap, which activates only when an active character is near. You can always just stand back and let your teammates do the work; otherwise, you should stay put and let the mobs come to you. C.01.c) "Secret" Areas ---------------------- The auto-map prevents there being any truly hidden rooms or platforms in the game; however, some are only accessible if you have a flyer or teleporter in your party. Some are just out of the way and you might run right by them on your way to an objective. Keep an eye out for "unfinished" areas on your map and make sure you explore each stage to its edges. C.01.d) Make-a-Door ------------------- Sometimes the only way to progress is to blow a hole in the wall. Almost any character can do this (though some are better at it than others), so if a room seems otherwise inaccessible or the path seems to have reached a dead end, try knocking down the wall. Areas with an Xtraction point are marked with an (X). There is no compass in the game and the maps rotate with your camera, so directions are based on nearest landmark and are not always real clear. Be sure to use your map to keep your bearings. =========================== C.02: Special Conversations =========================== Unlike XML1, XML2 has different conversation paths depending on whom is in your party and who is the current active (player-controlled) character. In some cases, having the right person on your team or as the active character results in a fully voice-acted conversation--almost a cutscene. The following are known conversation pairs: C.02.a) Act 1 ------------- * Toad and Blink: Full VO conversation, when you rescue Blink at the end of the first mission * Grizzly and Iceman: Full VO conversation, Iceman must be the active character when you encounter Grizzly * Grizzly and Jean Grey: Full VO conversation, first encounter with Grizzly only * Zealot and Magneto: Full VO conversation, Magneto must be the active character when you encounter Zealot * Lady Deathstrike and Wolverine: Full VO conversation, Wolverine must be the active character when you encounter Deathstrike * Lady Deathstrike and Brotherhood: Optional conversation allowing you to bribe Deathstrike to leave you alone, Brotherhood mutant must be the active character when you talk to Deathstrike * Pyro and Sunfire: Full VO conversation, this takes place when you are about to enter the Genosha Council for the boss fight against Abyss, Sunfire must be a member of your team * Mr. Sinister and Nightcrawler: Full VO conversation, Nightcrawler must be a member of your team but does not have to be the active character C.02.b) Act 2 ------------- * Rogue and Mystique: Full VO conversation. Have Rogue as the active character when you first leave Avalon and meet up with Mystique. C.02.c) Act 3 ------------- C.02.d) Act 4 ------------- * Colossus and Kitty Pryde: Full VO conversation. When at the X-Mansion, put Colossus on your team and make him the active character and then speak with Kitty Pryde (Shadowcat). * Toad and Stryfe: Full VO conversation. Toad must be on your team but does not need to be the active character to have a little extra chat with Stryfe (final fight at the end of the Brain Trust area). =============== C.03: Prologue =============== Objectives: * Escape Items: * None Recommended Team: * You get Magneto, Cyclops, Storm and Wolverine. Tutorial stage. You get Magneto, Cyclops, Storm and Wolverine. Mystique and Sabretooth follow you for a little bit, but are soon removed from action. This stage is just meant to get you used to the controls--especially fighting. If you are a veteran XML1 player, you should breeze through this area. But, veteran or novice alike should still take a look at the game hints scattered around. Stand on the yellow question mark and press Use. The third main room you enter has a side area straight ahead of you, blocked by a force field. Use Magneto's Levitation power to throw the switch on the other side of the field. Just press Use Powers and Magneto should target the switch, then press Attack. The first time you pick up a piece of equipment (such as a belt), the game will ask you if you would like to turn Auto-Equip on. For more info about Auto-Equip, see section B.02 Team Management Screens. The first time one of your characters levels up, you will be asked if you would like to turn on Auto-Trait or Auto-Skill or both. For more info, see section B.02. It is recommended you turn on both if you are a first-time player, and Auto-Trait is still recommended for experienced players. In the fifth large room, if you continue straight ahead, you'll enter a corridor guarded by gun turrets. Retreat from the turrets and knock a hole in the wall to your left (as you return from the guns). This takes you to the mini-boss of this area and brings you around behind the guns, which you can destroy if you wish. Head out to the X-Jet to begin Act 1. ============================= C.04: In the Blink of an Eye ============================= Objectives: * Talk to Sabretooth in the Sanctuary * Rescue Blink in the Dead Zone Areas: * Sanctuary (X) * Dead Zone Items: * Tech station (+2 Strike): first burned out airship Recommended Team: * Iceman comes in handy putting out fires and building bridges, otherwise, this is a good time for experimentation You open with an extended cutscene in Magneto's Genosha sanctuary, which is home base for Act 1. Spend a little time looking around; you'll find Beast nearby, ready to buy and sell and, next to him, the Review Computer, where you can look at your unlocked goodies. You can go ahead and play the Act 1 trivia game for some extra XP. Finally, there's the Danger Room Computer; but you can't do much yet as only one course is available. When you're finished sightseeing, go talk to Sabretooth, who is standing near the exit. (PC version anomaly: you can add Sabretooth to your team at the Xtraction point, then go talk to Sabretooth with Sabretooth. Weird.) Victor introduces you to your first mission, to rescue Blink. He'll open the gate for you to continue to the Dead Zone. There are a lot of fires in this area, which can hurt if you get knocked into them during combat. Use Iceman to put them out as you go. This first part of the Dead Zone is pretty small. There's one point where you can build a bridge (with Iceman, Jean or Magneto) for a shortcut. Keep an eye out for a burned-out ship. Inside is a +2 Strike tech station. Once you reach Blink and talk to her, this mission ends. You can return to Sanctuary for the official mission briefing, or just use Blink's portal to jump to the next part of the Dead Zone. **NOTE** Now that you have rescued Blink, you can open a Blink Portal back to home base at any time using the Blink Portal option from the game menu. ======================= C.05: Hacker's Delight ======================= Objectives: * Find a security code module in the Cerci Caverns * Find a security code module in the Barren Cliffs * Find a security code module in the Desolate Mesa * Locate and destroy the radar array in Desolate Mesa (optional) Areas: * Dead Zone (X) * Cerci Caverns * Barren Cliffs (X) * Desolate Mesa Items: * Homing beacon: just past entrance to Cerci Caverns * Danger Room Disc Setting 102 - Throwing: third large room in Cerci Caverns * Homing beacon: Cerci Caverns as you cross a bridge, to the side is a platform requiring flier or bridge builder to reach * Data disc: Barren Cliffs, under the brush in the side area right before you cross a bridge for your first meeting with Grizzly * Weapons cache: After meeting Grizzly, go left, build two bridges and pick up the cache * Tech station (+2 Focus): near radar array in Desolate Mesa * Bishop comic: next to aforementioned tech station * Sketch book (Dead Zone, Dead Zone Enemy, Magneto): next to aforementioned tech station Recommended Team: * Iceman for putting out fires, building bridges and slowing down Grizzly * Tank (Juggernaut, Colossus, Sabretooth, Wolverine) for breaking down walls in the Caverns * Characters with good beam or radial attacks for hitting Power Combos on Grizzly After her rescue, Blink opens a portal to the other section of the Dead Zone and you automatically jump through. There's an Xtraction point nearby for saving your game. It's a relatively short distance to the entrance to the Cerci Caverns. You'll be thrown into the Caverns automatically when you first approach the entrance, so run back out, go past the entrance and pick up your first homing beacon. In the first large "room" of the Caverns, you'll find your first security code module, which looks like a computer and has a green arrow floating over it. It is also marked on your map with a large, red X. Use it to add the codes to your collection. In the third room you enter in the Caverns, there's a Danger Room Disc (Throwing 102) in the middle of the room. Shortly thereafter, you'll cross a narrow bridge over a cavern. To your left will be a platform that requires a flier or bridge builder to reach. Cross to it to pick up another homing beacon. You exit the Caverns into the Barren Cliffs. You quickly reach a bridge formed by a burned-out airship. As you get ready to cross, you meet Grizzly. Yay. After exchanging barbed witticisms, turn around to search the brush for a data disc. Collect 4 data discs and get a bonus to your health/energy pack carrying capacity. Yay! Head over the bridge and go left. Build a bridge when you reach the chasm, then another to reach a weapon cache. Return from whence you came and go the other way to another Grizzly encounter. Make sure to pick up your second security module (marked with the red X on your map) as you go. After Grizzly runs off, break the box with the red X floating over it to turn off the flame jets. Save your game at the Xtraction point and head after Grizzly to the Desolate Mesa. First up is the radar array that's been aiming attacks at you the whole time. Destroy it, then head down and to the left of the main path. You'll find a +2 Focus tech station, Bishop's comic and a sketch book unlocking the Dead Zone, Dead Zone Enemy and Magneto concept artwork. Continue on the main path, it doesn't matter which way you go to get to your boss fight against Grizzly. Grizzly is all about melee attacks, so staying out of range and hitting him with Power Combos will work wonders. Afterward, pick up the last security module and head back to the Barren Cliffs. =================== C.06: Infiltration =================== Objectives * Defeat Zealot * Find the buried Genosha entrance in the Queen's Lair * Use security codes to enter Genosha * Defeat insect drones (12) in the Cerci Burrows (optional) * Destroy egg clusters (4) in the Larvae Chambers (optional) * Destroy the Cerci queens (3) in the Queen's Lair (optional) Areas * Cerci Burrows * Larvae Chambers (X) * Queen's Lair (X) Items: * Tech station (+2 Speed): Cerci Burrows, third room with drones * Sketch book (Insect Tunnels, Insect Tunnels Enemy, Nightcrawler): Cerci Burrows, when path forks, go right * Homing beacon: Cerci Burrows, in same room as exit to Larvae Chambers * Tech station (+10 Health): Larvae Chambers, in large room with a pit where you find second egg cluster * Wolverine comic: room with third egg cluster * Data disc: one of the queen's chambers, use a flier or bridge builder to get to central platform * Danger Room Disc Moves 103 - Triple Hit and Moves 104 - Throw: in the queen's chamber where you first meet Zealot Recommended Team: * Magneto for full dialogue with Zealot * Tank for breaking through walls * Ranged fighters for dealing with Zealot * Flier or bridge-builder for getting a data disc From the Barren Cliffs Xtraction point, Xtract back to the Sanctuary, talk to Angel and play your new mission briefing. When you're ready, Xtract back to the Barren Cliffs and enter the newly opened Cerci Burrows. In the third major room, after killing the fifth and sixth drone, find the +2 Speed tech station. In the next room, take the right-hand path first. It quickly dead-ends, but you can pick up a sketch book (Insect Tunnels, Insect Tunnels Enemy and Nightcrawler). Head back the other way. The next room contains the final two drones, the entrance to the Larvae Chambers and a homing beacon. As you enter the Larvae Chambers, you get a new optional objective. There are lots of egg clusters around, but you only have to destroy the four marked for you. Destroy this first one, then follow the tunnel until you reach a large chasm. Go left along the chasm to the second egg cluster, then continue around the chasm to find a +10 Health tech station. Keep going around the chasm and follow the marker to the third egg cluster. Wolverine's comic is in this same room. Follow the tunnels to the final egg cluster. You'll pass an Xtraction point on the way; save your game here. In the final room is the entrance to the Queen's Lair, so down you go. Get ready for some more serious fighting as you face off against Zealot's minions in addition to the Cerci. After your first encounter with Zealot's minions, the tunnel forks. Take the left path to the first queen's chamber and get a new objective. Kill the queen, then fly or build a bridge to the platform in the middle of the room. Pick up the data disc and go back the other way. When you reach the end of the tunnel, keep going straight through the next room and follow the next tunnel around to the second queen's chamber, where you meet Zealot. He runs away (not very zealous, is he?); after the fight is over, punch your way through the queen's eggs to get a Danger Room disc containing two courses: 103 and 104. Follow your map to the final queen, where you run into Zealot again. (Note, for extra fun dialogue, have Magneto in your party and selected as the active character.) Zealot runs away (again), leaving you to kill the final queen. Bust your way through to the Xtraction point and save your game. Your boss fight with Zealot is in the next room. Zealot's primary offense is also a defense. He surrounds himself with rock, becoming invulnerable to your attacks, then the rocks explode outward doing a bit of damage and-- more important--knocking you back and down. Take four ranged fighters and keep away from him and pepper him with beams, projectiles, etc. When Zealot is down, head through the next door to the red X on your map and Use the computer to open the way into Genosha. A woman runs out and tells of some bombs planted on the seawall. Return to Sanctuary and watch your next mission briefing. ==================== C.07: Under Pressure ==================== Objectives: * Disable the dirigible moorings (8) in the Genosha Seawall * Defuse all bombs (2) on the Genosha Seawall by destroying the detonators * Help Blob repair the cracked Genosha Seawall before all of Genosha is flooded (optional) Areas: * Genosha Seawall Items: * Tech station (+10 Energy): central rooms between dirigible hangar and seawall Recommended Team: * Someone with Might (i.e. Juggernaut, Wolverine, Colossus) to make helping Blob a little easier * A Brotherhood mutant to pick up a homing beacon As you enter the Genosha Seawall, you find yourself in a dirigible hangar and there's a blimp waiting to take off. First, you have to destroy the moorings holding it in place. Then, you'll need to free some prisoners, but that comes a bit later. Exit the hangar and hang a right. There's a security door down at the corner. Use a Brotherhood mutant to open it and collect your fourth homing beacon. Back in Sanctuary, a secret Blink Portal has opened. Don't go running back now, you're not quite high enough level to take on the enemies beyond the portal. Search the central rooms here for a +10 Energy tech station, then head for the seawall room where you find Blob playing the Dutch Boy to Genosha's dike. There are two bombs that must be defused, and the detonators are up on platforms along the wall. Any character can power jump over to the detonators, or you can fly or teleport. Just make sure you send someone that can do some damage because you have to destroy the detonators. Once they are both out, return to the water level. If you have a mutant with Might, push (Use) the beam into place. If not, find the computer console right next to the beam--there's a green arrow hovering over it. Try to activate it and it will fail. Now head up the stairs to your right and find the box marked with a red X on your map. Use it to find the spare parts for the console. Return to the console and you can now use it to move the beam into place. The exit to the Southern Habitats is to your left, so go there next. =============== C.08: Jailbreak =============== Objectives: * Help mutant prisoners (11) escape in the Southern Habitats * Help mutant prisoners (6) escape in the Northern Plaza * Speak with Blink in the Sanctuary * Save Pyro from the torture device in the Grand Hall (optional) Areas: * Southern Habitats (X) * Northern Plaza * Grand Hall (X) Items: * Homing beacon: Southern Habitats, unmapped corridor behind hydroponics lab * Colossus comic: Southern Habitats, side room near some of the mutant prisoners * Data disc: Northern Plaza, underneath one of the first stairways * Homing beacon: Northern Plaza, Mr. Sinister's experiment room * Danger Room Disc Qualifying Exam 100: Northern Plaza, one of the prisoner cells * Tech station (+2 Body): Grand Hall, near entrance, room to the right--destroy generator to bring down the force field * Sketch book (Genosha, Genosha Enemy, Iceman): Grand Hall, on one of the platforms, need a flier * Weapon Cache: Grand Hall, behind a broken pillar opposite the Xtraction Point * Data Disc: Grand Hall, on the floor Recommended Team: * Wolverine for full dialogue with Yuriko * Nightcrawler to open force fields and talk to Mr. Sinister * Brotherhood mutant if you want to avoid fighting Lady Deathstrike First up: Lady Deathstrike. She's fast. She's furious. And she's got adamantium claws like Wolverine. Bring Logan with you as the active character to get the full dialogue between them. (Evil mutant bonus: have a member of the Brotherhood as the active character when you meet Lady Deathstrike, and you can bribe her--cost 2,000 tech bits--to go away and leave you alone.) Open up a can of Feral Slash on her steely behind. Don't worry about the regeneration chambers she uses around the room. She doesn't heal much, and by the time you get up there to attack her, she's back down on the lower level. Have some ranged X-Men with you to combo up with Wolverine's Slash and just lay into Ms. Oyama. Once she's down, save your game at the nearby Xtraction point. Time to rescue some prisoners. From the Southern Habitats Xtraction point, go back into the Lady Deathstrike arena and head right through the double doors on the upper level. Go straight through another set of double doors into a hydroponics lab and head around the walkway into the back room. Talk to Caleb-Bann to open a door into an unmapped area just behind you. Follow this hall to pick up a homing beacon if you don't have four yet, or a 5,000 XP bonus if you do. Enter a room with three cells. Destroy the console in the center of the room to open the cells, then talk to each prisoner to officially "free" them. Now, here's the cheesy method of freeing the remaining prisoners using Nightcrawler (or Deadpool). Leave the room going back toward the hydroponics lab, continue straight ahead, through another hall and then take the outside corridors around the large room. Teleport through the force fields and turn them off with the control panels. This also opens the prisons in the center area of this room. Go talk to those prisoners. Head back through the arena to the set of rooms on the opposite side. Go straight back until you see a room with two control panels in it, that appear to be inaccessible. Teleport through the wall and activate the consoles to turn off force fields to the right and left. Go free the prisoners in the side areas. Be sure to thoroughly search side rooms, one has Colossus' comic. Go save your game. You're probably strong enough, by this time, to give the secret portal a try. Xtract to Sanctuary and enter the secret portal near Beast. You'll be in one leg of an X-shaped room. Go to the other three legs, defeating the enemies, and activate the consoles. The toughest enemies will be a pair of mutants with some serious knockback attacks. Bringing along a good tank with anti-knockback shielding would be a good idea. After the third console is activated, a titan appears in the center of the room, but he's a pushover. Collect Iron Man's gauntlets and leave. Xtract back to Southern Habitats and enter Northern Plaza. If you call the door where you come in "south", then there are two prisoners down a hall to the west and two down a hall to the east. Go down the stairs into the main room, then look under the stairways for a data disc. Go free the prisoners down the east and west halls. To the north are three hallways and a side room to the northeast. Go into the side room for a talk with Mr. Sinister. (Bring Nightcrawler along for full dialogue.) When he escapes, quickly kill his minions, then destroy the holding tanks with the Genoshans. If you still haven't collected four homing beacons, there's one in this room. If you have four homing beacons, you can get a 5,000 XP bonus instead. Now go free the prisoners in the left-hand and right-hand northern hallways. The prison down the left-hand north hall has the Qualifying Exam 100 Danger Room disc. The center hallway takes you to the Grand Hall. Enter the Grand Hall and go to your right. Take out the generator to open the force field and go through for a +2 Body tech station. Go to the other side of the entrance room and enter the doors to find Pyro held prisoner. Free him by knocking out the two generators. (PC anomaly: you can have Pyro help free himself. Weird.) After Pyro is free, advance into the Grand Hall proper. After defeating the enemies, search the ground level for a data disc and a weapon cache. Have a flier search the upper platforms for a sketch book (Genosha, Genosha Enemy and Iceman). When you approach the door to the Genosha Council, Pyro will warn you against fighting Abyss. (Bonus dialogue with Sunfire.) He'll then run away and you can get on with it. =================== C.09: Into the Void =================== Objectives: * Defeat Abyss * Speak with Professor X in the Sanctuary Areas: * Genosha Council (X) Items: * None Recommended Team: * Someone with Might to throw bombs at Abyss * Someone to stun or slow Abyss (such as Iceman or Wolverine) * Your favorite Power Combo pair The boss fight against Abyss is exciting, but not hard. The first stage involves straight up fisticuffs (X-Men style). Every once in a while Abyss will suck everyone in and throw them back out. This doesn't damage you, just delays the inevitable. Keep at him until he hits 50% health and he runs away. Follow him (you can save your game first, if you like) and jump on the dirigible he's riding. You then find yourself fighting Abyss on a flying airship. It's pretty cool, but, again, not that hard. When Abyss gets to 25% health, he jumps to another dirigible. You can't follow him, and you've got minions to deal with now. On top of that, Abyss is throwing bombs at your airship. Pick them up and throw them back. Hit Abyss' dirigible with about six or seven bombs and it blows up and Abyss jumps back to your airship. Lay into him again. When he hits 0 health, he sucks your whole team into an inter-dimensional abyss. There are four bombs surrounded by shields and they are on two levels. Walk over the wormhole in the center to switch levels, take out the demons keeping the shields up, then activate the bombs. Abyss and the airship blow up and you "land". Use the Blink Portal to return to Sanctuary. Wrap up everything you've left hanging (if you want to, you can come back later), then speak to Professor X. Time to go back to the X-Mansion. ===================== C.10: Certain Destiny ===================== Objectives: * Talk to Pyro * Find Mystique in the Jungle Canal * Rescue Destiny in the Jungle Canal * Defeat Garokk * Talk to Mystique in Avalon Areas: * Avalon (X) * Jungle Canal Items: * Danger Room Disc Challenge - Cyclops: Jungle Canal, right fork in the path soon after entering area * Data disc: Jungle Canal, first cave you travel through * Homing beacon: Jungle Canal, second cave you travel through Recommended Team: * Mostly ranged fighters for dealing with Garrok Or not. Well, there'll be no wandering the halls of the Xavier School for the Gifted in this game. You're in a new base of operations in the Savage Land, which is a tropical jungle in the middle of Antarctica. Yeah, it's the X-Men, what do you expect? OK, you've got a new base, Avalon, to explore. Play the trivia game. Talk to people. You'll find Pyro out on the docks; after talking to him, you can view your next mission briefing. Head out to the Jungle Canal--the entrance is right next to Pyro. When the path forks, go right to pick up a Danger Room Disc, Challenge - Cyclops. Past that point, you'll see a marked exit. When you approach, you fall into a cave. Proceed through the cave, picking up a data disc on the way. At the other end, break through the rocks to exit the cave. Head straight across the exterior path and into another cave entrance. You'll find a homing beacon in this cave. When you exit, you'll be trapped by Garrok. After a short cutscene, you are freed and have to take him on with the help of Mystique. Garrok can't dish out a lot of damage, but he does have a knockback attack and a teleportation-like ability. Melee characters will be chasing him all over the place. Take some ranged characters and just sit back and blast him. After, return to Avalon and talk to Mystique, Garrok, Destiny and Angel. You can then view your next mission briefing. ===================== C.11: The New Ice Age ===================== Objectives: * Protect the atmospheric generators in the Jungle Ruins Areas: * Jungle Ruins (X) Items: * Weapon cache: Jungle Ruins, just past the Xtraction point * Homing beacon: Jungle Ruins, next to weapon cache * Toad comic: Jungle Ruins, behind one of the atmospheric generators * Tech station (+20 Health): Jungle Ruins, next to one of the atmospheric generators Recommended Team: * Fast-moving characters to quickly run between the generators * Characters with knockback attacks or stunning attacks to keep enemies away from the generators Go to the Jungle Ruins--the entrance is past Ka-Zar. You'll see a short cutscene of enemies destroying a generator. Your mission is to protect the other two; however, there's no hurry...yet. Advance down the path, activating an Xtraction point. Just a bit further on you'll see a weapon cache lying out in plain sight. Next to it, somewhat camouflaged by the environment, is a homing beacon. Continue down the path until you come to the first generator under attack. Rush in to defend it. When Angel signals the other generator is under attack, rush over to it (you'll see the red X's on your map) and defend it for a while. Then you'll have to run back to the other generator. Continue until you get the cutscene with the last enemy. Once that conversation is finished, you can explore around the generators, where you'll find Toad's comic and a +20 Health tech station. =========================== C.12: No Way In, No Way Out =========================== Objectives: * Locate the hidden entrance to the ancient monument in the jungle * Defeat Sauron to gain entrance into the monument Areas: * Jungle Pass (X) Items: * Cyclops' comic: Jungle Pass, in the ruined temple * Homing beacon: Jungle Pass, take the right fork from the beginning path and then enter the left-hand cave to get the beacon * Weapon cache: Jungle Pass, in laser-bomb guarded cave just before Xtraction point * Tech station (+4 Speed): Jungle Pass, in a ruined temple beyond the laser-bomb guarded cave with the weapon cache * Sketch book (Jungle, Jungle Enemy, Jean Grey): Jungle Pass, cave just past the Xtraction point Recommended Team: * Tanks to deal with Sauron * Ranged characters to take out laser-tripped bombs From the Jungle Ruins, enter the Jungle Pass. When the path forks, take the left path to a ruined temple. Pick up Cyclops' comic. Continue following the path. When you reach a downed tree, instead of jumping over it, head to the right and follow the path to a cave entrance. Go through the cave, picking up a homing beacon on the way. When you leave the cave, there's another cave entrance to your left. (If you look at your map, you'll see you've made a circle and are now at the end of the right fork of the beginning path.) Go through the other cave. When you exit, you'll be trapped. Destroy the energy saps and then the laser fence posts and continue up the path. You'll now be on the main path, past the fallen tree you stopped at earlier. Continue on to an Xtraction point. Backtrack from the Xtraction point and search to the left for a cave entrance. The cave has laser bombs, so you'll need a ranged attacker to take them out. Pass through the cave, picking up a weapon cache. Beyond is a small area with a ruined temple containing a +4 Speed tech station. Go back to the main path and head for the cave entrance past the Xtraction point. As you pass through this cave, keep an eye out to your left for a sketch book (Jungle, Jungle Enemy, Jean Grey). When you exit the cave, you'll be at the entrance to the Nuwali Temple, but a talking pterodactyl named Sauron doesn't want you to go any further. Sauron flies around a bit, dropping energy bombs on your head. You can try to hit him with ranged attacks while he's flying, but it's more effective to wait until he lands and then lay into him with melee powers and attacks. He's quite vulnerable to those. He'll stun you, briefly, when he takes off again, but just wait him out, keep moving around while he's flying and let him have it when he lands. Once Sauron is defeated, you can enter the Nuwali Shrine. ========================== C.13: Beyond the Threshold ========================== Objectives: * Locate a mystic stone in the Nuwali Shrine * Locate a mystic stone in the Nuwali Corridors Areas: * Nuwali Shrine * Nuwali Corridors (X) Items: * Tech station (+4 Body): "East" path from Nuwali Shrine entrance, have to push columns out of the way * Danger Room Disc Assault 203: Nuwali Shrine, in a room "southwest" of the water-filled altar room * Sunfire's comic: Nuwali Shrine, in room leading to Nuwali Corridors * Tech station (+20 Energy): first main room of Nuwali Corridors * Sketch book (Monument, Monument Enemy, Juggernaut): Nuwali Corridors, on a ledge after you fly over the large chasm * Gambit's comic: Nuwali Corridors, on the octagonal platform with one of the guardian switches * Weapon cache: Nuwali Corridors, in a hidden room in the corridor on the way to the octagonal platform, break down the wall * Data disc: Nuwali Corridors, behind a breakable wall next to weapon cache Recommended Team: * Jean Grey to fly and use TK or Magneto to fly and use Levitation As you enter the Shrine, you'll get a communique from Shanna. You've got to find two keys hidden in the Shrine. Oh joy. To make directions in this place easier, call the main entrance the south side of the Shrine. From the first main room, take the east hall and follow it around. You'll soon come to some columns that need to be pushed out of the way. Any character with Might, or Magneto or Jean can do so. Continue on to find a +4 Body tech station. Beyond the tech station, the path will fork. Take the south door and search the next room carefully for a homing beacon. That should be the four you need this Act. Continue this direction until you reach a marked objective (red X on your map), which turns out to be a Zelda-inspired push-button on the floor. Yay. Step on it, then jump down into the water-filled room. Head south and up the stairs, then through the west door. In this next room search for the Danger Room Disc, Assault 203. Keep on going around until you get to another floor button. Now jump down into the water-filled room and go up on the altar platform to get your first mystic stone. Head south back to the main entrance and take the west door. Look for Sunfire's comic among the rubble along the right side of the room and exit to the Nuwali Corridors. In the first room you will find an Xtraction point and a +20 Energy tech station. The door straight ahead leads to the Nuwali Gateway; don't go there yet. Go through the other door and enter another water-filled room. From where you enter, take the right-hand hall and have either Jean or Magneto fly across the L-shaped chasm to a small ledge. Pick up the sketch book (Monument, Monument Enemy, Juggernaut), use TK or Levitation to push the large block out of the way, then throw the guardian switch. (Don't worry if your teammates mysteriously appear next to you. It's one of the "features" of the game.) Fly back to the water-filled room and go straight across. Continue down the corridor to an octagonal platform. Defeat the horde of enemies, then throw the guardian switch and pick up Gambit's comic. (If you don't see the comic after the battle, don't worry, you probably accidentally picked it up during all the button mashing.) Go a little way back down the corridor and find the breakable wall on your left. Enter the hidden room for a weapon cache, then break the wall to the left of the cache for a data disc. Head back to the water-filled room and get your second mystic stone. The fourth corridor from this room leads to the Elemental Tomb, so head there now. ================== C.14: Tomb Raiders ================== Objectives: * Locate the Vibranium Idol * Find the Fire Skull * Return the Fire Skull * Find the Water Skull * Return the Water Skull * Find the Earth Skull * Return the Earth Skull * Find the Air Skull * Return the Air Skull * Return to Ka-zar in Avalon Areas: * Elemental Tomb (X) Items: * Weapon cache: room of air * Tech station (+4 Strike): between earth and water rooms * Danger Room Disc Challenge - Gambit: water room * Homing beacon: alcove in the room of fire Recommended Team: * Flier for getting an elemental skull * Bridge builder for getting an elemental skull * Tank for breaking things * Iceman or Storm for putting out fires Advance to the first main room and turn right. When you reach the ledge around the large chasm, turn right for a weapon cache. Go back the other way around the chasm until you reach the bridge over to the central, octagonal platform. Have your flier fly to the top of the column and pick up the air elemental skull. Go back over the bridge and through the nearby door to reach another chasm with platform. Take the bridge over, break the rocks and get the earth elemental skull. Take the second bridge off this platform and head through the door. After passing through one room, look down the stairs to your right to find a +4 Strike tech station. Continue through to the water room. Here you'll need to build a bridge across to the platform to get the water elemental skull. Just to the right of where you build the bridge, pick up the Danger Room Disc, Challenge - Gambit. There's also an Xtraction point nearby. Leave through the other door and enter the fire room. Cross to the center platform and put out the fires to get the fire elemental skull. There's a homing beacon (or 15,000 XP reward) in an alcove in the corner opposite where you entered. Continue on to complete the circle and arrive back at the entrance. Now go through the door opposite the entrance to find the room with the pillars that requires the skulls you just picked up. Go to each pillar and Use it to place the skull and the vibranium idol you're searching for rises out of the ground. Go back to the Nuwali Corridors and Xtract back to Avalon and talk to Ka- Zar to finish this task. =================================== C.15: Beyond the Threshold, Part II =================================== Objectives: * Place the mystic stones (2) in the Ancient Doorway statues of the Nuwali Gateway Areas: * Nuwali Gateway (X) Items: * Danger Room Disc Defend 204: when you enter the Gateway from the Corridors, go straight across the hall and break through the wall on the left for the disc * Homing beacon: when you enter the Gateway from the Corridors, turn left and fight your way down the long hall with flame-throwing statues, near the end of the hall, break through the wall on your left and break your way through the walls to reach the beacon * Data disc: from the homing beacon room, go straight across the large hall and through a series of rooms to a large cavern with bridges and islands, immediately turn left and send a flier along the ledge until you see the disc on the other side of the wall, break through the wall Recommended Team: * You'll need a flier or bridge builder to get the data disc Return to the Nuwali Corridors and enter the Gateway. As you enter, go straight through the hall into the next door and break the wall to the left to pick up Danger Room Disc Defend 204. Return to the entrance hall and go right. At the end is another hall with water troughs running through it. It's a long hall with lots of enemies and, just to make things interesting, flame-throwing statues along the sides. You can't destroy the statues or their flamethrowers, so just stay out of the way. Near the end of the hall is a breakable wall to the left. When you break through the wall and get to the next room, walls rise out of the floor. They're breakable, so don't worry about them. Bust your way down the right side of the room to cross the bridge over the chasm and eventually get to a homing beacon--or 15,000 XP if you've already got four beacons. Go back to the main hall and go straight through the door on the other side. Follow the rooms until you get to a cavernous room and find yourself on a bridge. You can, if you wish, thoroughly explore this room, building bridges to move from platform to platform. You'll find a way back to the Corridors exit; an exit to the Shrine and plenty of enemies to drop loot and give XP. However, the important thing is right here. Look along the wall to your left as you come into the cavern. You can't walk along it, but send a flier down the wall until you see a breakable wall along the ledge (you should also be able to see the data disc behind the wall). Land, break down the wall, collect the disc and head back to the hall of flamethrowers. Head through the main exit and you'll be in a large room with some columns that have glowing rings around them and an Xtraction point. If you fall off the raised floor where the Xtraction point is located, you can send a flier back up and the rest of the team will "jump" to you. If, for some reason, you have no flier nor a teleporter, throw one of the switches to be sent to the homing beacon room you cleared a few moments ago and come back through the main door. Alright, head across the room, place your mystic stones and open the Gateway. Professor X will call you back to Avalon to speak to Destiny; this would be a good time to get Iron Man's armor as well. The secret room is M- shaped; and the boss at the end is guarding Iron Man's chest piece. The boss is invulnerable until you hit him with a popup combo (Attack, Attack, Smash). Weird. Get Iron Man's armor, return to Avalon, talk to Destiny, Xtract back to the Gateway and head on through to the Beyonders Sanctum. ====================== C.16: The Beast Within ====================== Objectives: * Defeat Mikhail * Free Beast from Mikhail's trap * Talk to Professor X in Avalon Areas: * Beyonders Sanctum (X) * Mikhail's Warship (X - Change Team only) Items: * Danger Room Disc Qualifying Exam 200: When you enter the Sanctum, it is behind a large stone in an alcove to your left * Data disc: From the Xtraction point in the Sanctum, go to the opposite corner of the room and look behind the stairs * Tech station (+4 Focus): in the Sanctum, in the corner opposite the Xtraction point, go up the stairs, through either door and to the corner room, put out the fire at the base of the column and the station will come down * Weapon cache: Beyonders Sanctum in the room where you fight Omega Red Recommended Team: * See below In the first large room you enter, look along the left wall for an alcove. The Qualifying Exam 200 Danger Room Disc is hiding behind a large stone. From the Xtraction point, go down the stairs and head for the opposite corner of the room. There's a stairway here, and a data disc is hiding to the left of the stairs. At the top of the stairs, go through either door and to the corner room where a large column dominates the center of the room. Put out the fire burning at the base of the column and it will lower to reveal a +4 Focus tech station. Once you've finished your collecting, head through the door next to the Xtraction Point and fight your way to the mini-boss battle against Omega Red. He's not that tough, just hang in there and hit him with your powers. Once he's down, the real fun begins. Search Omega Red's room for a weapon cache, then save your game and stock up on energy and health packs. You should be able to carry at least 22 of each (20 from having at least one character at level 20+ and 2 from finding the first eight data discs). Use the glowing portal in Omega Red's room to enter Mikhail's Warship. Once past his initial group of minions, you'll find an Xtraction point. All you can do at this one is Change Team. Beyond you'll begin what is, arguably, the hardest boss fight in the whole game. The fight against Mikhail has three stages, each harder than the last: 1) Mikhail clones himself. Individually, these guys aren't all that tough, but being mobbed by 15 or 20 Mikhails isn't fun or easy. An Xtreme or two here really helps. 2) Mikhail shields himself and turns the four shield generators into minions. In order to take down the shield, you have to lure each minion onto a pad, kill it while it's on the pad, whereupon it turns back into a console and you can Use it to turn off one of Mikhail's shields. Minions killed when not on a pad turn into consoles, but you can't use them. And then Mikhail turns them back into minions. After the first shield is down, Mikhail starts sending out a rotating beam that damages you and knocks you down, forcing you to play jump-the-energy- beam with him. Now, you're probably wondering how, exactly, you are supposed to accomplish all this. Good question. First, you can recognize when a minion is in the right place because a red arrow will show up over its head. When you see that red arrow, blast it. Don't use powers with Knockback, because you DON'T want to knock it back. Likewise, don't use Telekinesis or Levitation to throw it around. Immobilizing powers (such as Iceman's Freeze Beam) are best. You can lure foes onto the pads by setting your teammates to Defensive AI and keeping them grouped around you with the Call Allies button. This fight takes patience and a certain amount of luck. But, keep at it, the worst is yet to come. 3) When Mikhail loses his shields, he becomes quite happy. You see, he now gets to open a can of whup-ass on you and he will enjoy this very much. Mikhail is TOUGH, and he has a couple of very annoying powers. One, he can turn random objects in the room into minions, so you can't just pepper Mikhail, you have to worry about his lackeys as well. Second, Mikhail can slow down time and you start moving in slow motion while he speeds up and he can come and have his way with you. Yeah. It's that bad. Of course, in addition to his main powers, he can hit for a fair amount of damage and he has a ranged attack and he can stun you and he can knock you down. But, it's all good, right? Again, patience and luck are key. One way to survive this battle is to use Nightcrawler (or Deadpool if you've unlocked him) and, whenever Mikhail slows time, teleport to the opposite side of the room. Mikhail will concentrate on the human-controlled player, so he'll chase after you without bothering your companions. Another helpful thing is to go on a rampage around the room, destroying objects before Mikhail can turn them into minions. A highly destructive, wide-range power works well for this (such as Colossus' Thunder Clap). As a side benefit, you'll get some item drops, including, hopefully, energy and health packs. Finally, Mikhail seems most susceptible to melee damage, so having characters who can add melee damage (especially elemental damage, like Iceman and Sunfire) can be a big help. Keep the flaming fists of fury up, get Mikhail into a corner and just whale on him. However you fight Mikhail, you'll want your highest-level mutants in this battle. The higher the level, the better. There's no one specific way to defeat him. Go all tank or all ranged, just be sure you go all out. Don't be surprised if you get through this battle with one hero left, clinging to life by a thread. Don't worry about the new objectives. It's all over but the shouting. Sweep the room for tech bits, health and energy packs and other flotsam, then take the new door that's opened up. Once the scientist runs away, destroy the computer console, talk to Beast and take the portal back to Avalon. Talk to Professor Xavier to begin the next Act. ======================== C.17: Rotten to the Core ======================== Objectives: * Talk to Angel * Take X-Jet to the Core * Attach Forge's transceiver into a core console in the Core Interior * Shut down security gate in Core Security * Lower Core shields using shield controls in Core Security * Lower control rods (2) in the Yellow sector of the Core Reactor * Activate control rods in the Yellow sector of the Core Reactor * Lower control rods (2) in the Blue sector of the Core Reactor * Activate control rods in the Blue sector of the Core Reactor * Destroy coolant pumps (2) in Core Control * Defeat Sugarman * Release safety mechanism in Core Control * Talk to Angel in the Weapon X Facility Areas: * Weapon X (X) * Core Interior * Core Security (X) * Core Reactor (X) * Core Control Items: * Homing Beacon: small room left of the entrance to Core Interior * Data disc: from entrance to Core Interior, go right and disc is near X-shaped pit * Danger Room Disc Challenge - Iceman: Core Interior, after putting Forge's transceiver in a security console, turn left down the hall and first room on your right * Tech station (+6 Speed): at the other end of the hall from the Challenge - Iceman disc is a room with a reactor coil, send a teleporter through the wall over the coil or have a flier knock the wall down (using Attack) * Weapon cache: Core Interior, at the opposite end of the hall from the exit to Core Security * Danger Room Disc Assault 303: Core Security, from the entrance, go right to the third room on the left and into the back room * Weapon cache: Core Security, from the entrance, take the left-side hall to the second room on the left and break through the back wall * Storm's comic: Core Reactor, in the central hall * Homing beacon: Core Reactor, in the central hall, on a ledge past a nuclear waste pit, use a flier or teleporter to pick it up * Sketch book (Core, Core Enemy, Rogue): Core Control, near force field that blocks you from Yellow reactor coolant pump * Weapon cache: Core Control, in room where you fight Sugarman Recommended Team * You'll need a flier or teleporter to pick up a homing beacon * You'll need a team that's good at hitting combos to fight Sugarman Welcome to your new digs. Go to the Xtraction point and try out your new Age of Apocalypse threads. You can now put together an AoA team (+100% ATK) of your choice (or not). Wander around. Talk to Prof X, Wolverine, Havok, Heather Hudson (required) and Angel (required). Note: you'll have to use the X-jet to get around this time. Play the trivia game. Frolic in the Danger Room. Drool over your unlockables. View your mission briefings. Whatever floats your boat. When you're ready to get back to the action, head for the X-Jet and choose to be taken to the Core. You'll enter the Core Interior. To the left is a small room where you can pick up your first homing beacon. To the right of the entrance is an X-shaped pit with radioactive slime at the bottom. Be careful fighting around the pit, enemies with knockback can throw you to your gloopy doom. There's a data disc next to the pit, so be sure to pick that up. You'll also begin encountering enemies that are invulnerable unless you hit them with a specific attack (such as the boss in the Iron Man area in Act 2). Keep an eye on the enemy's status bar. Head down the hall past the pit to another pit room, this one with a computer console that is your first objective. Use it, and the door behind it will open. In the hall, turn left and go into the first room on your right to pick up the Challenge - Iceman Danger Room disc. Go down the hall the other direction and turn the corner to run into a force field. Turn around and go through the door behind you into a reactor room. Over the blue coil is a breakable wall. A flier can take it down (slowly) with standard Attacks or you can teleport through it. Behind the wall is a +6 Speed tech station. Go through the next room to get around the force field (you can disable it from this side), then go to the room at the end of the hall and break down the left-hand walls to advance to the exit. At the opposite end of the exit hall is a weapon cache hidden amongst common barrels and boxes. Enter Core Security. The Xtraction point is down the hall to your right, first door on your left, which happens to be a lavatory. Oh joy. The next room to the left is just goons. The room beyond that is also just mobs, but you can go through to the room in the back to pick up the Assault 303 Danger Room disc. Go back to the room before the DR Disc room, and break the wall to the side to get into a computer room. Destroy the computers to open the gate to the security room. Head back for the entrance and take the left side hallway. The first room on the left has mobs, and the second. You can break through the back wall of the second room to get a weapon cache. The third room is also just mobs; the fourth is the core security room. Destroy the console in here to open the force field to the core reactor. Head for the exit, clearing out the room on the left as you go (nothing but mobs). As you enter the Core Reactor, the Blue area is to your left and Yellow to your right. In each area, you have to drop two control rods and then activate the reactor at the main control. Take whichever you prefer first; both areas play exactly the same: The room you first enter has the main control console. Ignore it and continue to the room with a big pit in the center. Use the console on the small bridge to drop the rods. Proceed to the next rod room and repeat the procedure. Return to the main console and activate the reactor. Once both reactors have been activated, the doors to the central hall will open. Go up the center hall to pick up Storm's comic and continue until it dead-ends at a T intersection. Across the pit is a homing beacon, use flight or teleportation to get it. Then go around either through the Yellow or Blue area to get to the Xtraction point and the exit to Core Control. In Core Control, follow the hall to a dead end, where you can destroy the coolant pump for the Blue reactor (has a red arrow floating over it). Then go back through the hall and take the door on your left. When you reach the room with the force field, go the other way, through the door and break through the wall at the far end of the room. Be sure to circle around and pick up the sketch book (Core, Core Enemy, Rogue) near the force field. When you get to the room with the energy sap, try to stay away from it and draw mobs to you. Go through the door before the energy sap to find the Yellow reactor coolant pump. Destroy it, then head back to the energy sap room and go past it. Wait a few moments for your energy to recharge (or use up some energy packs). You've got a mini-boss fight ahead of you, so you might want to open a Blink Portal and return to base for rest, refit and save game. When you're ready, head through the door for your battle royale. Sugarman looks tough and he is, partially. He can dish out a lot of damage, and his tongue lash would make Toad green with envy, but his defenses are weak. Power combos are especially good against him. A half-dozen combos will dissolve Sugarman, so take a team that you can hit a lot of combos with. Try to stay behind him or to the side so you avoid his tongue, and run away when he starts flailing about with his hammers. It shouldn't take you long to take Sugarman out. Search the room for a weapon cache (it's not hidden), then activate the console to blow up the reactor. Take the portal back to Weapon X. Rest and refit. Watch the Infinite Factory mission briefing, then head out in the X-Jet. ============================ C.18: Infinite Possibilities ============================ Objectives: * Talk to Heather Hudson in the Weapon X Facility * Take X-Jet to the Infinite Factory * Destroy Infinite Engineering - Start the power source in Infinite Engineering - Turn off emergency override in Infinite Engineering * Destroy Genetic Processing - Destroy the DNA storage in Genetic Processing * Destroy Mutant Fusion Core * Destroy Infinite Assembly Factory - Shut down the substations (4) in the Assembly area - Shut down the substation for the cryogenic monitoring system * Infinite spy needs codes: A member of Department H needs codes from a computer console (optional) Areas: * Factory Entrance (X) * Infinite Engineering * Fusion Core * Genetic Processing * Assembly Factory (X) Items: * Data disc: Factory Entrance, near exit to Genetic Processing * Weapon cache: Room beside power distribution console room * Danger Room Disc Challenge - Phoenix: Infinite Engineering, from power distribution console, follow hall back towards exit, going straight through door to get the disc from a balcony * Tech station (+6 Strike): Infinite Engineering, end of the path opposite the way to the power distribution console * Scarlet Witch's comic: Fusion Core, at first intersection go left and it's in the first room * Tech station (+30 Health): room just beyond Scarlet Witch's comic * Weapon cache: Fusion Core, in a room with a large pit, just before the room with the fusion core * Tech station (+30 Energy): Genetic Processing, in the DNA processor (big rollers) after you wreck it * Homing beacon: Genetic Processing, left at the first intersection past the DNA processor, on one of the side catwalks * Iceman's comic: Genetic Processing, on the large metal bridge, among the blocks that bar your way * Homing beacon: Assembly Factory, on top of some crates in a long, rectangular room on your way to the cryogenic substation * Weapon cache: Assembly Factory, room where you destroy the cryogenic substation * Danger Room Disc Challenge - Sunfire: Assembly Factory, cryogenic chamber inside one of the pods Recommended Team: * There are a lot of robots that are resistant to mental attacks and immune to energy and elemental attacks, so a tank-heavy party does well At the Factory Entrance, your first objective is ahead and to the left behind some cylinders; it's the security pass that will allow you to get into some locked areas. Go down the right-side hall to the four-way intersection and take a right. Down on your right is the Xtraction point, and across from it is a console where you can download some genetic codes. Go back to the four-way and turn right (you're now continuing straight away from the entrance) and pick up a data disc. Back to the four-way, go right again, and find the Department H agent who wants those genetic codes. Since you're down here anyway, head through the door, which leads to Infinite Engineering. Follow the hall to the large room with two pits in the center, and take the right-hand (as you come into the room) door. When you come to the next large room, you're up on a catwalk, follow it around to your right and continue through the hall. Keep going, through a couple more rooms. In the second room, activate the security console to unlock the power distribution console you're looking for. Head out through the opposite door to a T-intersection and go right and around to find the power distribution console. Use it to overload the system. That does it for Engineering, and you can use the teleporter to your left to instantly return to the center of the Factory Entrance... But, if you're a completeist--open the door to your right to score a weapon cache. Go back into the hallway, but keep going straight, through the door to pick up the Challenge - Phoenix Danger Room disc. Keep going back to the first big room with two pits and go through the opposite door and to the end of the path to find a +6 Strike tech station. Go back to the Factory Entrance and save your game. Since the Xtraction point is right next to the Fusion Core, make that your next stop. When you reach the first intersection, use the control panel on your left to open the door. Go into the rooms beyond to find Scarlet Witch's comic and a +30 Health tech station. Go back the other way and proceed across the bridge. When you get near where the hall turns left, there's an energy sap. Run past it and draw the mobs after you; recharge with energy packs and lay into them. Keep going until you reach a room with an energy sap in the middle. Stay away from it and wait for the mobs to come get you. Then bust your way through the wall to continue. In this room, there's a weapon cache to the left of the wall you broke through. Now just keep going until you reach the fusion core and bust it up. Then take the nearby teleporter back to the Factory Entrance and head for Genetic Processing (the door near where you picked up the data disc). Take either the left or right path until you reach a large room with some rolling cylinders in a pit. Find the steel beam with the blue X floating over it and use a Might character or Jean or Magneto to push it into the cylinders. Jump down into the pit and use the +30 Energy tech station. Continue across the bridge until you reach the first intersection. Go left, destroy robots until the dispenser runs out, then search the catwalks to the side to pick up a homing beacon. Go back the other way and follow the catwalks around until you get back on to the main bridge (it was blocked, and you had to come around this way). Go back toward the blocks on the bridge to pick up Iceman's comic. Continue on to the main DNA processing platform, activate the console, then have a character with Might push a tank off the edge. Mission accomplished, time to teleport back to the Factory Entrance and talk to Guardian. Time to take out the Assembly Factory. Go down the stairs to the left of your entry point to this area and open the doors using the console. Beware of the energy sap in the first room of the Factory. The next room contains an Xtraction point. Work your way down the corridor, dodging electric beams and destroying the marked consoles. When you hit the last one, a door opens to your left, but don't go that way just yet. Head in the opposite direction to find a cryogenic chamber. Destroy the gun turret in the center, then head back in the other direction. When you get to a long, rectangular room filled with crates, look on top of the crates for your fourth homing beacon. Continue following the corridors until you get to a small room with your objective--a computer console. Destroy it, pick up the weapon cache nearby and leave through the other door, which takes you to the cryogenic chamber. Now you'll appreciate having destroyed that turret as all the clones in cryogenic sleep wake up and start attacking you. You'll note, during the short cutscene, one of the slumbering clones ahs a disc in its pod. After you've defeated the mobs, use a flier or teleporter to get up to the upper level and pick up the Challenge Sunfire Danger Room disc. Go through the one door you haven't been through yet, and you'll find the exit into Central Processing. ========================= C.19: Sinister Intentions ========================= Objectives: * Destroy the super computer * Talk to Heather Hudson in the Weapon X Facility Areas: * Central Processing Items: * Sketch book (Infinite Processing Plant, Infinite Enemy, Gambit): Landing after crossing first bridge Recommended Team: * Anyone with whom you're comfortable, the fight is pretty easy From the entrance of Central Processing, cross the bridge to a landing, which has an energy sap and a sketch book (Infinite Processing Plant, Infinite Enemy, Gambit). Cross the next bridge and through a couple of rooms until you see reach a large room with a center area surrounded by (unbreakable) glass and several large columns of light. This is your mini-boss fight, so you might want to open a Blink Portal and save your game. Walk around the outside of the glass until you reach some glass doors. When you enter, you'll be confronted by a hologram of Mr. Sinister, who then unleashes clones of old X-Man (Cyclops, Storm, Wolverine and Iceman, to be specific). This fight is, really, laughably easy. Ignore the Sinister clones and run around destroying the holographic generators (columns of light). Then concentrate on the X-Dopplegangers. Once they are gone, use the new Blink Portal to return to Weapon X and talk to Heather Hudson. While you're hear, use the Secret Blink Portal next to Forge to enter an E- shaped room. Clear the room while avoiding the far end of the E from where you enter. Once the room is clear, you can go to that end and Use the console to turn off the force field blocking Iron Man's helmet. The console is protected by an energy sap, but if there are no enemies around, that doesn't matter. Return to Weapon X. ======================= C.20: 'Altar'ed Reality ======================= Objectives: * Destroy the psionic altar in the Madri Cloisters * Destroy the psionic altar in the Meditation Chamber * Destroy the psionic altar in the Divine Sanctuary You will accomplish these objectives simultaneously with "Of Gods and Heroes". ======================== C.21: Of Gods and Heroes ======================== Objectives: * Talk to Professor X * Take the X-Jet to the Madri Temple * Locate the Stepford Sisters * Find the Body Artifact in the Hall of Knowledge * Return the Body Artifact to the Madri Antechamber * Find the Rage Artifact in the Madri Cloisters * Return the Rage Artifact to the Madri Antechamber * Find the Heart Artifact in the Meditation Chamber * Return the Heart Artifact to the Madri Antechamber * Find the Soul Artifact in the Divine Sanctuary * Return the Soul Artifact to the Madri Antechamber * Find the Mind Artifact in the Madri Conclave * Return the Mind Artifact to the Madri Antechamber * Talk to Professor X Areas: * Madri Antechamber * Hall of Knowledge (X) * Madri Cloisters * Meditation Chamber * Divine Sanctuary * Madri Conclave (X) * Monastic Citadel (X - Change Team only) Items: * Homing beacon: Madri Antechamber, entrance, next to one of the columns * Danger Room Disc Destroy 304: Madri Antechamber, first room after entrance * Juggernaut's comic: Madri Antechamber, behind an altar near where you first meet Emma Frost * Tech station (+6 Body): Madri Antechamber, after meeting Emma Frost, keep going straight and it's the room at the end of the hall * Danger Room Disc Challenge - Scarlet Witch: Madri Cloisters, in the room where you make an offering to open the Artifact of Rage room * Tech station (+6 Focus): Madri Cloisters, when you destroy the psionic altar, use the offering altars in the corners of the room to open a room a little way back down the hall * Weapon cache: Madri Cloisters, same room as +6 Focus tech station * Danger Room Disc Qualifying Exam 300: Meditation Chamber, in an alcove on the opposite side of the area from the entrance * Weapon cache: Divine Sanctuary, in the large room with all the side rooms, turn back toward the entrance and enter a small room * Homing beacon: Divine Sanctuary, from the room with the weapon cache, go further back (toward the entrance) to enter a very small room and fly up to get the beacon * Data disc: Divine Sanctuary, in one of the two side rooms with a large pit, fly over the pit to a ledge * Sketch book (Madri Temple, Madri Enemy, Scarlet Witch): Divine Sanctuary, in the downstairs shortcut from the Artifact to the main entrance * Data disc: Madri Conclave, at the first T-intersection, go right and clear the rooms and you should find the disc in a corner alcove * Weapon cache: Madri Conclave, in the downstairs shortcut between the Artifact and the main entrance Recommended Team: * You'll need a flier for several items * A teleporter comes in handy for exploiting a couple of shortcuts * You'll definitely need a tank with strong personal shielding (Colossus, Juggs, Rogue) for the boss fight Watch your mission briefing, then use the X-Jet to get to the Madri Temple Antechamber. Here in the entrance foyer is a homing beacon, right beside one of the columns. In the very next room is a Danger Room disc, Destroy 304. Next up is a hall full of doors. Open any of the side doors to get your next set of tasks. Clear out the side rooms and beyond to find the entrance to the Hall of Knowledge. In the Hall, take your first left to get the Artifact of Body. A portal will open back to the Altar of Body, use it, place the artifact, then portal back. Continue through the Hall. Take the next right to find an Xtraction point. Then head the opposite way to encounter Emma Frost, who adds a new set of tasks to your Objectives list. Look to the right side of this room for a sunken altar pit, Juggernaut's comic is behind the altar. Keep on going straight and you'll come to a room with a +6 Body tech station. Coming out of that room, turn right and fight your way through needless filler to get to the exit to the Madri Cloisters. The Cloisters is a spiral hall, so you go 'round and 'round. The second room on your left contains the Artifact of Rage, but you can't open the door. (Exploit alert: teleport through the wall with Nightcrawler/Deadpool and your teammates will also jump through the wall, so you can go ahead and get the artifact immediately.) Continue along the hall to the next room on the left, where you can make an offering (and pick up a Danger Room disc, Challenge - Scarlet Witch). Once you make an offering, the door to the artifact room opens, so go back, pick it up, portal through, place it on the altar and portal back. When you finally reach the end of the hall, you will be in the room with a psionic altar. Destroy it, and the door to continue will open. Before going on, visit the four offering altars in the corners of the room. Doing so opens a door a bit further back along the hall, inside that room is a +6 Focus tech station and a weapon cache. Continue on into the Madri Conclave. At the first intersection, go right and enter the Meditation Chamber. Take your first right and then the next right and enter the large room. Kill the mobs and flip the switch in the corner to lower a gate leading to the Heart Artifact. There are three more switches like this, one in each corner of the area. If you leave this first room and go around to your right, you'll find a Danger Room disc, Qualifying Exam 300, after the second corner room. It's directly opposite the area entrance. One of the corner rooms also contains the psionic altar you're supposed to destroy. However, the fighting is so furious, the altar will most likely be destroyed without you even knowing what happened. Once all four switches have been thrown, you can go to the center room, pick up the Heart Artifact and return it to the altar in the Antechamber. Then portal back to the Meditation Chamber, go back to the Conclave and cross to the Divine Sanctuary. Take either the right or left passage, go down the ramp and, at the bottom, turn back toward the "front" of the area, enter the small room and find a weapon cache. Go into the next small room and fly up to where you can see either a homing beacon or an XP bonus waiting for you. Now advance deeper into the Sanctuary. You'll come to a huge room with seven side rooms, one of which contains the proper Artifact. Standing facing into the large room from where you enter, number the side rooms starting at the left-most room and skipping the center room (the gated one right in front of you). So, the left-most room is #1 and the right-most is #6. You can explore each one if you like; however, you'll find the correct Artifact in room #3, which will open the gate to the center room where the portal to the Antechamber opens. In room #2 you can get a data disc by sending a flier over the pit, past the fake Artifact platform. After returning to the Antechamber to place the Artifact, as you leave the portal, go downstairs through the new door that opened when you collected the Artifact. This is just a shortcut back to the beginning of the area, but you can pick up a sketch book (Madri Temple, Madri Enemy, Scarlet Witch) in the left-hand side room. Return to the Conclave and advance deeper into the area. When you get to the end of the hall, go right and kill the enemies and search the area for a data disc. Go back the other way and fight your way to a large room with a Book of Contemplation on a stand (green arrow hovering over it). Use the book, then continue to a room with a pool in it, where you can Use a Book of Questions. The hall beyond has an Xtraction point. You might be tempted to take a shortcut and fly or teleport over the pit (and your teammates will "jump" to you); all you'll miss is a little XP and the Book of Answers, which is in the next room. Opposite the Xtraction point (however you get there) is the Book of Reflections. Use it, then continue until you get to the room with the Artifact of Mind. When you collect the Artifact, a portal opens and so do a couple of doors leading downstairs. Take the nearest door downstairs to pick up a weapon cache, then come back up the same way and use the portal to get back to the Antechamber. When you place the Artifact of Mind on the appropriate Altar, a portal opens to the Monastic Citadel. This is the boss fight and there's no full- service Xtraction point there, so prepare yourself before stepping through the portal. The first stage of the battle is with the Stepford Sisters. This isn't that hard, and mostly requires patience. The two main weapons of the Sisters are creating illusions of themselves and a psychic blast that has a lot of knockback, but doesn't do a lot of damage. You can spot the translucent illusions easily enough, and if you can keep the real Sisters off balance, they won't be able to use their psychic blast. A good tank is useful here. Once you've "killed" the Sisters, Holocaust drops in to see what's happening. Again, this isn't terribly difficult as long as you're patient and have a good tank with good defenses. If you can keep at Holocaust, he'll spend most of his time draining the life force from his minions and won't spend a lot of time attacking you. When he is draining life from a minion, don't bother attacking him as you can't damage him. Instead, unleash a good AoE power, such as an Xtreme, to get rid of the minions and then go back to attacking him. As his health goes down, a Stepford Sister will run out and stand at a shrine and send a beam to Holocaust that makes him invincible. OK, the Sisters are no tougher now than before. Run over and feed the Sister a knuckle sandwich and then you can lay into Holocaust again. This battle is likely to take a while, but it shouldn't cause too much trouble. Use Colossus, Rogue or Juggernaut as your active player, keep defenses up and use energy packs to keep the heavy punches coming. Once Holocaust is down, portal back to Weapon X, talk to Xavier and leave for the X-Mansion. ======================= C.22: Sentinel Invasion ======================= Objectives: * Talk to Havok * Take X-Jet to the Perimeter Platforms * Destroy all the generators on the main gun platforms (3) * Destroy radar arrays on the radar array platforms (3) * Destroy console * Deactivate shielding * Destroy generator * Defeat Bastion * Talk to Havok at the X-Mansion Areas: * Perimeter Platforms Items: * Sketch book (Pens, Pens Enemy, Storm): First gun platform * Danger Room Disc Challenge - Toad: Second gun platform * Weapon cache: Second gun platform * Homing beacon: Third gun platform * Weapon cache: Second radar array platform * Danger Room Disc Challenge - Rogue: Third radar array platform Recommended Team: * You'll be fighting Sentinels, so don't bring Jean Grey or Prof X * You need a party-wide shield to help protect the SHIELD agent (hint: Storm's Will of the Goddess) * Someone with a very destructive power to take out machinery in one shot The X-Mansion is a shadow of its former self; but it will still serve as your home base for this part of the game. Things are a bit more scattered here: Forge and the Review Computer are upstairs; Prof X, Moira McTaggert, the Mission Briefing Computer and the Trivia Game are on the first floor in a side room; and the Hero Stash, Danger Room Computer, Xtraction Point and Havok and the X-Jet are outside. Your first order of business is to speak with both Moira and Havok. After speaking with them, you can view your two new mission briefings, play the trivia game, work out in the Danger Room, what have you. When you're ready, use the X-Jet to head for the Perimeter Platforms. This mission is fast, furious and extremely chaotic. The first part is also timed. OK, here's the rundown in a nutshell: you run to three gun platforms and destroy the generators powering the guns--within a small time limit, then you teleport to some radar arrays and run through three of them, protecting a SHIELD demolitions expert while he destroys the arrays. After all this is over, you fight Bastion. Finally, you do all this without the benefit of any Xtraction points or the use of Blink portals--so no saves, re-stocking of supplies or anything else. Get it? Got it. Good. Here's the best way to handle this mission. You start on the first gun platform, so run to the generator (big machine in the middle) and destroy it. Head toward the left side (from your entry point) to find the bridge to the next platform. Don't worry about the mobs, just head for the next platform. Repeat destruction of the generator, then head for platform #3, which is straight ahead from the entry point. After destroying that generator, take some time to de-mob the platform. You're off the clock now, so go back through the gun platforms, taking out the trash and picking up goodies. Here on gun platform #3 is a homing beacon. On gun platform #2 is a weapon cache and the Challenge - Toad Danger Room disc. On platform #1 you can pick up a sketch book (Pens, Pens Enemy, Storm). Head back to gun platform #3 and use the teleporter to jump to the radar arrays. You'll meet Sergeant Kilroy, the SHIELD demolitions expert. Your job is to keep him alive while he destroys the radar array in the middle of the platform. Using a party-wide shield makes this a little easier. You should also use Radial powers--especially any with a lot of knockback. You don't have to worry too much about Kilroy, his health is restored after the radar array is destroyed. Once the first is down, run to the second--head straight across and a little left from your entry point--and repeat, then run to the third--go left from the entry point. Uh oh. There goes Kilroy. And after all that effort on your part. Go to the platform and go to the console to the left of the radar array. Destroy it, then go to the console at the base of the array and Use it. Run clockwise around the array to the generator and destroy it. Everything's cleared, so it's time to mop up and search for collectibles. Clean off radar array platform #3 and search the small areas on the outside edges for Danger Room disc Challenge - Rogue. Head back to radar array platform #2 and claim a weapon cache. There's also a nice Sentinel respawn point near the bridge to platform 1 if you want to power-level a little bit. When you're ready, head back towards platform #3 and use the teleporter to the Command Center Platform. This is a boss fight against Bastion, who isn't terribly tough on his own, but summons hordes of Sentinels to help him out. You're probably a bit low on energy and health packs at this point, so here's the cheesy way to beat him: Use Storm's Will of the Goddess to make the party invincible and then unload power attacks on Bastion and ignore the Sentinels. You should be able to defeat Bastion before you run out of Xtreme icons to use for WotG. Once Bastion is defeated, Blink finally makes a portal for you and you can return to X-Mansion. After a rest and refit, enter Sewers South near where Kitty Pryde is standing. ===================== C.23: Hellfire to Pay ===================== Objectives: * Talk to Moira * Find Sebastian Shaw in the New York South Side * Find the Master Key in the New York South Side * Find Sebastian Shaw's holodiscs in the New York West Side * Return the Master Key to Shaw at the Mansion * Return the holodiscs to Shaw at the Mansion * Pay Sebastian Shaw 10,000 tech bits Areas: * Sewers South * New York South Side (X) * New York West Side Items: * Homing beacon: Sewers South, behind a fan, you must take Storm to the room behind the fan and have her hit the generator with Lightning * Danger Room Disc Challenge - Colossus: Sewers South, in the first very large room, in the left corner opposite the entrance * Weapon cache: Sewers South, in the hall right before the exit to New York South Side * Homing beacon: New York South Side, on the rooftop to the right of the exit to Sewers South * Danger Room Disc Challenge - Nightcrawler: New York South Side, left of the Xtraction point, at the end of the street * Weapon cache: New York West Side, straight ahead from the South Side exit, along the right side of the street * Danger Room Disc Survival 404: New York West Side, across the street from the weapon cache * Tech station (+8 Speed): New York West Side, on an upper floor of a bombed-out building near the Sewers West exit, you can fly up or climb the pile of rubble nearby Recommended Team: * You'll need Storm to pick up a homing beacon in Sewers South Ah well, you think they could have recycled one of the more interesting locales from the first game. Anyway, when you reach the first large room, you'll keep seeing your game pause as someone says, "Look! Here's a homing beacon!" There is, indeed, a homing beacon behind a large fan. You can't get it right now, so ignore it. Keep going around until you reach a very large room. Head down the left- side catwalks to find the Challenge - Colossus Danger Room disc. When you get to the next room, go left and work your way around behind the fan with the homing beacon. You can build a bridge over the pit to get to the fan generator, but, as Storm seems to be the only character capable of stopping the generator, just fly her over and hit it with Lightning. You can then fight your way back to the homing beacon and pick it up. Then it's on through the sewers until you reach the exit to New York South Side. Just before the exit, you'll encounter a very tough Morlock Outsider that is only vulnerable after being hit with the Stun combo (Smash, Attack, Smash, Smash). In the same hall you encounter the Outsider is a weapon cache. Once on the streets of the Big Apple, follow the alley around until you find some wrecked train cars and use one as a ramp to the elevated tracks. Go back over the rooftops, crossing a bridge, to find a homing beacon. (Shortcut: when you first leave the sewers, send a flier or teleporter straight up to the rooftop to your right to pick up the homing beacon.) Now go around the cars still on the tracks to find Sebastian Shaw. He'll cut a deal with you and then you're off on your mission to find his stuff. Go down the stairs to find an Xtraction point. To the left of the Xtraction point, at the end of the street, pick up the Challenge - Nightcrawler Danger Room disc. Going right from the Xtraction point, you'll soon come to another place where you can cross over the elevated tracks and you'll find both Shaw's Master Key and the exit to New York West Side on the other side of the tracks. As you enter New York West Side, go straight and find a weapon cache along the right side of the street. Go directly to the opposite side of the street and look behind some trash cans for the Danger Room disc Survival 404. Go back to the intersection and cross to the next street. Keep going straight to find some Infinite Uniforms underneath a hotel portico. Backtrack to where you see the red X marking your objective; you'll be able to pass the force field with the Infinite Uniforms you picked up. (You'll automatically put the uniforms on as you approach the force field.) After getting Shaw's holodisc, head for the opposite corner of the street. You'll find a large pile of rubble up against the side of a bombed-out building. Climb the rubble and climb up through the ruins to a +8 Speed tech station. Open a Blink Portal back to X-Mansion and talk to Shaw (he's standing next to the Danger Room computer). This will officially close out this mission. Save your game and portal back to New York West Side. ====================== C.24: Prison of Misery ====================== Objectives: * Destroy the powerful psychic brains in the Brain Trust * Defeat Stryfe * Talk to Banshee at the X-Mansion * Get access code from Mirrin (optional) * Get access codes from Schill (optional) * Create a psychic demon to help defeat Stryfe: Use Lenzir's access code on the Test Chamber Control Panel to disable the test Brain Trust and enable the psychic demon Spawn Control Panel (optional) Areas: * Sewers West * Holding Pens (X) * Stockade * Brain Trust Items: * Weapon cache: Sewers West, in a room behind a bus, use a Mighty character or Magneto or Jean Grey to move the bus * Magneto's comic: Sewers West, in the hall beyond the bus room, go to the left end and break the sewer great, enter the tunnel to collect the comic * Data disc: Sewers West, in a room near the exit to the Holding Pens, shut off the water using the switch in the room across the hall, then send a flier down to get the disc * Homing beacon: Holding Pens, go left from the exit to Sewers West and work your way around behind the double force fields to find the console that turns them off and you can collect the beacon * Weapon cache: Holding Pens, after destroying a generator, keep going straight to reach the cache * Jean Grey's comic: Holding Pens, next to aforementioned weapon cache * Weapon cache: Holding Pens, a little further on from the previous cache, behind some destructible fencing * Danger Room Disc Defend 503: Holding Pens, next to second weapon cache * Tech station (+8 Body): Stockade, near the exit to the Holding Pens is a gated room, use Magneto or Jean Grey to flip the switch inside the room and collect the tech station; you can also get into this room from the other side once you've fought your way around, just activate the console to lower the force field * Sketch book (New York, New York Enemy, Colossus): Stockade, just past the Slow trap, go behind a force field to get the book * Weapon cache: Stockade, after the Slow trap, keep to the right, crossing a water-filled pit and in the next room is the cache * Data disc: Stockade, after switching hallways to get around a force field, keep to the right and get it from behind another force field * Danger Room Disc Teamwork 403: Stockade, in large room leading to Brain Trust, in a side alcove * Weapon cache: Brain Trust, in the pit in the room where you spawn the psychic demon * Danger Room Disc Challenge - Juggernaut: Brain Trust, in the room next to the psychic demon spawn room * Weapon cache (x2): Brain Trust, right outside the door leading to the fight against Stryfe Down the street from the tech station is the entrance to Sewers West. Head down into the sewers and work your way to a hall that has a derelict bus. Using Magneto, Jean or a character with Might, push the bus out of the way to get into a room with a weapon cache. Opposite the bus is a room with a big pit. Fly over the pit and pick up an ID Card on the opposite side. In the next room beyond the bus hall, go to the far left end and break through the sewer grate. Enter the tunnel to collect Magneto's comic. Return to the Sewers and head through to the next room, which is a mini- boss fight against a Morlock Giant. Just beyond this room you'll find Banshee, who will fill you in on the holding pens where Apocalypse is holding many mutants. Continue until you reach an octagonal room with a large pool of water in the center. Straight ahead is the entrance to the Holding Pens and there is a room to the left and the right. Go into the left-hand room first and throw the main water switch. This will shut off the water flowing in the room across the hall (the right-hand room) and reveal a data disc. Send a flier down to get it, then exit to the Holding Pens. At the first intersection, turn left. Your path back will be blocked by a force field, and, after defeating the mobs, you will be able to see a homing beacon between two force fields on the opposite side of the room. There is one door that you can open, to your right as you face the homing beacon. Go through that door and work your way around behind the homing beacon. There's a console here that turns off all three force fields and you can pick up the beacon (your fourth) and go back toward the entrance. Continue in the other direction by the only path open to you until you are shown a generator you must destroy. Defeat the mobs, then break the generator to open the path straight ahead. Continue to pick up a weapon cache and Jean Grey's comic. Keep following this path to pick up another weapon cache and the Defend 503 Danger Room disc. Just beyond the second weapon cache is a small room with two teleporters that will respawn mobs for quite a long while. (Note that some people have experienced system crashes in this room, so you might want to just turn around and go back to the generator room.) When you're tired of frolicking with your constantly refreshing playmates, run back to the generator and go through the door directly opposite to find an Xtraction point and the exit to the Stockade. Since you should have all four homing beacons by this point, you may wish to Xtract back to the X-Mansion and use the secret portal (it's upstairs, near Forge). This time you have to fight your way through an N-shaped room full of mid-40s level mobs. There's no mini-boss, but the mobs are tough enough to make up for this, so stock up on health packs before entering. You'll collect Iron Man's jet boots for your trouble. Return to the Holding Pens and enter the Stockade. You'll quickly reach a gated room to the right that has a tech station. There's a lever to open the door on the inside of the room, Magneto or Jean can flip the switch and you can pick up the +8 Body station now, or wait just a bit. Progressing past this side room, you'll take a right and run into a mini- boss. After he and his minions are defeated, you'll find your way back blocked by a force field. Go to your right where you can see a console with the familiar green arrow hovering over it. As you approach, you'll set off a trap that slows your party down. Turn and destroy the trap, as you will come under attack. Once all the mobs are defeated, activate the console to turn off the force field leading into the tech station room from this side. You can now enter, get your +8 Body and open the door from the inside. Continuing past the Slow trap, you can go behind a force field and pick up a sketch book (New York, New York Enemy, Colossus). Then keep going down the hall. At the end of the hall, go right and jump down into the water- filled pit. Climb the stairs and pick up a weapon cache. (Note: if, rather than go right at the end of the hall, you went left, you would need a Mighty character or Magneto or Jean to throw a large pipe into the fire to open the path. Then you would go through the next room and to the right to find the weapon cache.) There are two doors through which you can continue. The left-hand door's path is blocked by a force field, so take the right-hand door and Use the console to turn off the field. Then cut over to the left hand path and at the next intersection, turn off the force field and go right for a data disc. Continue until you reach a large room with the exit to the Brain Trust. Be careful of approaching the door, there's another Slow trap in front of it. Once all the mobs are defeated, look in a side alcove of the room for the Teamwork 403 Danger Room disc. Then break down the door and enter the Brain Trust. As you enter Brain Trust, you get a holographic message from Banshee containing some helpful hints. Proceed straight across the hall into a room with a pit. Defeat the mob in this room to get his access code, then use it on the console in the corner. This will open the other console and allow you to spawn a psychic demon helper. Down in the pit is a weapon cache. Next to the first console is a door, through which is a room containing the Challenge - Juggernaut Danger Room disc. Leave this room by the other door and turn left at the corner and then take the first door on the right. This leads to Mirrin and his access code. Once he's defeated, use the console in the room to destroy Brain Trusts 1 and 2. Go back out into the hall and around the corner, through the first door on the right and then go immediately right and through the door to find Schill, get his access code and destroy Brain Trust 3 at the console. Go back to the previous room and cross the catwalks to enter a long hall full of respawning mobs and Slow traps. Fun stuff. At the end of this hall are two weapon caches. Beyond is the boss fight against Stryfe, so take a moment to open a Blink Portal and head back to the X-Mansion for rest and refit. When you're ready, step into the arena with Stryfe. (Bonus: have Toad in your party to get a full-VO conversation with Stryfe.) Stryfe isn't that tough, but, as long as one psychic brain is "alive", he will be revived every time you kill him. Even though you destroyed three brains using the consoles earlier, there's still six that remain. Concentrate on getting rid of those first. Stryfe has a telepathic attack that holds you and then flings you away, and he'll chase after the active character. It helps to use Nightcrawler or Deadpool here and quickly teleport away from Stryfe, destroy a brain, then teleport away again. He'll be spending all his time running back-and-forth after you while your teammates pepper him with attacks. Once the final brain is gone, Stryfe is a pushover. Use Blink's portal to return to X-Mansion and talk to Banshee. Then Xtract back to New York South Side and head back to West Side. ================================ C.25: Where Angels Fear to Tread ================================ Objectives: * Find the abandoned sewer entrance in the New York North Side * Defeat Deadpool * Enter Apocalypse's Tower through the North Sewers Areas: * New York North Side * Sewers North (X) Items: * Tech station (+40 Energy): New York North Side, from the exit to West Side, go straight across and a little left * Rogue's comic: New York North Side, from the exit to West Side, go right to the end of the street and look behind some barrels on the left side of the street * Data disc: New York North Side, after finding Rogue's comic, turn left down the street and look on the left side of the street in a small alcove * Sketch book (Perimeter, Perimeter Enemy, Sunfire): New York North Side, in a corner of the area where you fight Deadpool * Sketch book (Sewers, Sewer Enemy, Cyclops): Sewers North, after crossing a waterway, head to the right to a small side room that must be entered by knocking down the wall * Homing beacon: Sewers North, after crossing a waterway, continue straight to a room with a campfire, in the corner is a door that cannot be opened, teleport through or use Magneto or Jean to flip a switch on the inside * Weapon cache: Sewers North, side room immediately before the Xtraction point Cross over to the other street and go in the opposite direction from the Sewers West entrance. You'll reach the entrance to New York North Side. After entering North Side, go straight and a little left to find a +40 Energy tech station. Then go right until you can't go any further and look on the left side of the street for Rogue's comic. Take the street to the left and search the left-hand side for a data disc hidden in a small alcove. Go left around the corner and you'll soon get a cutscene of Deadpool busting out of the ground. Fighting Deadpool is easier with Nightcrawler as you can use Teleport Attack or Teleport Frenzy to keep up with him as he teleports around the area. Once Deadpool is defeated, look around the area to locate a sketch book (Perimeter, Perimeter Enemy, Sunfire). Then jump down into the hole Deadpool came out of to enter Sewers North. You can only get out of the first room by breaking down the walls; and many of the walls in the first set of rooms are destructible. When you reach a long room with paths to your left and right, take the left path as the right one is blocked. In the next set of rooms, find a small side room to the right that can only be entered by knocking down the wall. You'll find a sketch book (Sewers, Sewer Enemy, Cyclops) inside. Go back to your left to a room with a campfire in the middle. In one corner is a room with a door that cannot be opened. Use a teleporter to jump through or have Magneto or Jean throw the switch that is on the other side of the door. Inside is a homing beacon (or XP bonus). Continue working your way through the sewers until you reach the Xtraction point. Just before the Xtraction point is a side room with a weapon cache. Just beyond the Xtraction point is the entrance to Apocalypse's Tower. As you approach it, you'll get a message from Professor X asking you to meet him at X-Mansion, but don't bother, he has nothing new to say. Save your game at the Xtraction point and enter the Tower. ======================= C.26: Hail to the Queen ======================= Objectives: * Find the Black Queen in the Tower * Shut down the power grid to the prison sector of Tower Engineering * Talk to the Black Queen You will complete this mission as you complete "Evil Revealed". =================== C.27: Evil Revealed =================== Objectives: * Meet Beast in Sinister's Lab * Chase after Beast into the Tower Apex * Defeat Archangel Areas: * The Pantheon (X) * Tower Engineering * Sinister's Lab (X) * Tower Apex Items: * Sketch book (Apocalypse's Tower, Tower Enemy, Toad): Pantheon, in the center of the room as you enter from North Sewers * Weapon cache: Pantheon, under the statue in the middle of the first hall; requires a flier * Danger Room Disc Challenge - Magneto: Pantheon, under the statue in the middle of the first hall; requires a flier As you enter The Pantheon, you'll see a sketch book (Apocalypse's Tower, Tower Enemy, Toad) in front of you. Pick it up, then try to open the door to the left. You'll activate the auto-defense systems. Destroy the two control units highlighted with red arrows, then destroy mobs until they stop respawning. Go through the now open door to an Xtraction point. Go down the steps and fight your way along the hall. When you reach a large pit, there's a +8 Focus tech station in front of it. In the center of the pit, underneath the huge statue is a weapon cache and the Challenge - Magneto Danger Room disc. You'll need a flier to get the goodies; you can't build a bridge or teleport. Beyond the statue are stairs leading up to a teleporter that takes you to Tower Engineering. Use the console to start the teleporter sequence, then fight off mobs for 30 seconds until the teleporter is ready. Then take it to the next level. As you pass through the first doorway in Engineering, turn left and double back through another door. This leads to the room where Selene, the Black Queen, is being held. Pick up a +40 Health tech station in the room, then leave by the door to the right of the tech station, and find a data disc-- the fourth for this Act--in the next room, right next to the pit. Continue toward the room with all the red X's marked on your map and destroy the marked control units. You can also pick up the Challenge - Storm Danger Room disc in this room. If, rather than going straight back to Selene's cell, you leave by the other door, you will find a weapon cache just outside. Head back to Selene and talk to her to close out the "Hail to the Queen" mission, then leave by the door to the left of the tech station and take the teleporter to Sinister's Lab. Head into the first room and clear out the mobs. You can pick up Nightcrawler's comic from the upper level. At the far end of the room is a door that can be opened by Magneto or Jean, either of whom can flip the switch on the other side of the door. This will open the Xtraction point. You can also get around the door the hard way by clearing out the halls to either side of the main room. You can do this anyway for the XP. Also, the room to the right of the Xtraction point has a weapon cache and the Graduation Exam 400 Danger Room disc. When you're ready to get on with the final fight, leave by the door directly opposite the Xtraction point. After the cutscene, clear the mobs, collect the weapon cache and use the teleporter to get to the Tower Apex. Bonus: have Jean Grey in your party for a full-VO conversation with Archangel. The fight against Archangel proceeds in three stages. First is a straight- up fight against him until he's lost a third of his health. During this stage, just avoid his dive-bombing attacks and work him over with your mutant powers. Second, Archangel takes refuge in the teleporter in the center of the area and starts summoning minions. Ignore the minions and concentrate on taking out the teleporter arms. When they are all destroyed, the teleporter beam goes crazy. Thus begins the hardest part of the fight. Like many boss fights, this isn't really difficult, as in, you're going to die a lot, but it does require patience. Every time you get hit by the teleporter beam you get randomly transported to one of the mini-teleporters scattered around the Tower Apex. You don't take any damage, but you do have to get yourself back into the fight. Meanwhile, Archangel is taking refuge on columns on the outside edges of the area. You have to attack the column he is on and destroy it. Once all these refuges are gone, Archangel returns to attack you. Once again, this is a straight-up fight against Archangel, but he is going to spend a lot more time in the air, so you must maximize the damage you inflict when he's on the ground. Then there's that teleporter beam sweeping around, randomly transporting you hither and thither... Patience, padawan, patience. Perhaps the best single mutant for this battle is Nightcrawler. You can quickly teleport back if you get hit with the beam, and you can also teleport away from the beam. And, when Archangel alights, you can Teleport Frenzy him from a fair distance away. Keep at Archangel, collect health and energy packs as they drop from all the destructible objects, and you will eventually wear him down. Clean off the Tower Apex and step into the center teleporter to begin the last Act. / \ /--MEN LEGENDS II----------------------------------------------------- \/ /\---Section D. ALLIES--------------------------------------------------- / \ / HOW TO READ THE SKILL LISTINGS There will be a header number (such as C.01.a.vi) followed by the skill name followed in parentheses by the skill type. There will then be a colon, followed by any skill pre-requisites (i.e. other skills that you must acquire first before unlocking this skill) and then the skill description. At the end of the description will be the combo name, which is the adjective/noun pair used when making combos with the skill (offensive skills only)*. So, the skill header will look like this: header number - skill name (skill type): pre-requisites. description. combo name. Underneath the skill header will be the list of ranks, their level requirements, effects and energy point (EP) cost: (level requirement): effects, cost EP If the level requirement for a skill rank is 1, then that skill is available from the beginning of the game, unless there is another skill pre-requisite. * HOW COMBO NAMES WORK Power combos have a name composed of an adjective and a noun. Each offensive power has an adjective and a noun associated with it. When a combo occurs, the first power that hits contributes the adjective and the second power that hits contributes the noun. Thus: Storm's Blizzard + Magneto's Magnetic Shell = Snowy Prison Magneto's Magnetic Shell + Storm's Blizzard = Immobilizing Blizzard or Iron Man's Disruptor Shock + Deadpool's Butterfly Kick = Stunning Kick Deadpool's Butterfly Kick + Iron Man's Disruptor Shock = Wicked Disruption ============= D.01: Bishop ============= D.01.a) Skills -------------- D.01.a.i - Bio Beam (Beam): Combo name - Energy Beam D.01.a.ii - Plasma Blaster (Projectile): Combo name - Pulsating Pulse D.01.a.iii - Sapping Strike (Melee): Combo name - Draining Sap D.01.a.iv - Full Auto (Projectile): Requires Plasma Blaster.

If more than four characters are listed below, you may have any four on your team to earn the bonus: Age of Apocalypse: +100% ATK Rating - Any 4 heroes with Age of Apocalypse skins Agile Warriors: +5% XP - Nightcrawler, Sunfire, Toad, Deadpool Brotherhood of Evil: +5% XP - Juggernaut, Magneto, Toad, Scarlet Witch Bruiser Brigade: 20 EP gain per Knockout - Juggernaut, Colossus, Wolverine, Rogue Dark Past: 5% damage inflicted goes to HP - Rogue, Gambit, Deadpool, Wolverine Double Date: 20 HP gained per Knockout - Rogue, Gambit, Jean Grey, Cyclops Energy Corps: +5% damage - Gambit, Bishop, Cyclops, Iron Man Family Affair: +5 HP regeneration - Magneto, Scarlet Witch, Juggernaut, Prof X Femme Fatale: 5% damage inflicted goes to HP - Storm, Scarlet Witch, Rogue, Jean Grey Forces of Nature: +10 to all Resists - Storm, Iceman, Sunfire, Magneto Heavy Metal: +10 to all stats - Colossus, Juggernaut, Iron Man, Magneto New Avengers: +15% Max HP - Iron Man, Scarlet Witch, Wolverine, Bishop New X-Men: +15% Max HP - Nightcrawler, Storm, Colossus, Wolverine, Sunfire, Bishop Old School: +15% Max EP - Cyclops, Jean Grey, Iceman, Magneto, Toad, Prof X Raven Knights: +60% tech bit drops - Iceman, Prof X, Iron Man, Deadpool Special Ops: +5% damage - Bishop, Deadpool, Nightcrawler, Gambit So, what are the best teams? Forces of Nature is a good team; you get two fliers, two bridge builders and the Leadership bonus. The only thing you don't get is a good tank, which can hurt in the early game. You also don't get a hugely useful team bonus. You can mix-and-match either New X-Men or Old School for a varied team. The downside to New X-Men is the lack of a Brotherhood mutant while Old School, again, lacks a decent tank. Femme Fatale has good variety and a regenerating team bonus--always nice. Plus, you get a nice mix of damage types, a tank, two fliers and a bridge builder. The Age of Apocalypse is good for a melee-heavy party, but the bonus won't help much if you are using lots of ranged attacks. Brotherhood of Evil gives a nice selection of mutants and faster leveling, but no X-Men. Most of the rest are too heavy in one area (e.g. Bruiser Brigade is all tanks) or not available until you've beat the game once. Once you have unlocked the three bonus characters, New Avengers, Heavy Metal and Special Ops look attractive. ================ D.22: Categories ================ Throughout this guide, references will be made to heroes by their abilities; for example, fliers refers to all characters with the Flight skill.

Buy for Location means the disc must be purchased from Beast or Forge. Awards stack; e.g. if you beat the Vibranium Award requirement, you also receive the Titanium Award and Adamantium Award. If you beat all the courses, you will unlock Professor X as a playable character. ====================== G.01: Freshman Courses ====================== G.01.a) Setting 101 - Hidden Goods ---------------------------------- Location: n/a Objectives: * Destroy all crates * Complete within 1:30 Titanium Award (beat the course): 200 XP Adamantium Award (within 0:45): +1 Strike Vibranium Award (within 0:30): An item Recommended Team: * Any single hero, one with Might or a Beam power works best Smash the marked crates. It's easier to finish in less than 30 seconds if you use a ranged fighter. G.01.b) Setting 102 - Throwing ------------------------------ Location: Cerci Caverns, third room Objectives: * Execute a pickup-and-throw move five times * Complete within 1:30 Titanium Award (beat the course): 300 XP Adamantium Award (within 0:45): +1 Speed Vibranium Award (within 0:30): An item Recommended Team: * Any single hero, the faster the better Pick up items with Use and throw them with Use. Just grab any crates or barrels lying around. G.01.c) Moves 103 - Triple Hit ------------------------------ Location: Queen's Lair, chamber where you first meet Zealot Objectives: * Strike enemies with the Triple Hit 5 times * Complete within 1:30 Titanium Award (beat the course): 450 XP Adamantium Award (within 1:00): +1 Strike Vibranium Award (within 0:45): An item Recommended Team: * Any single hero, a tank works best Use Attack, Attack, Attack for the Triple Hit. Don't spend a lot of time running around looking for enemies, they'll spawn on top of you. G.01.d) Moves 104 - Throw ------------------------- Location: Queen's Lair, chamber where you first meet Zealot Objectives: * Execute throwing an enemy 5 times * Complete within 1:00 Titanium Award (beat the course): 600 XP Adamantium Award (within 0:45): +1 Body Vibranium Award (within 0:30): An item Recommended Team: * Any single hero, a tank works best Press Use while standing near an enemy to pick him/her/it up. Press Use again to throw the enemy. Don't spend a lot of time running around looking for enemies, they'll spawn on top of you. G.01.e) Teamwork 105 -------------------- Location: Buy for 160 tech bits Objectives: * Defeat 10 enemies * Call for help from allies five times * Complete within 3:00 Titanium Award (beat the course): 750 XP Adamantium Award (within 1:15): +1 Focus Vibranium Award (within 0:45): An item Recommended Team: * Any This is real simple. Just lay into the enemies that spawn and spam your Call Allies button. You should be able to complete the course in less than 30 seconds. G.01.f) Moves 106 - Knockback ----------------------------- Location: Buy for 250 tech bits Objectives: * Strike enemies with the knockback attack 10 times * Complete within 2:00 Titanium Award (beat the course): 1000 XP Adamantium Award (within 1:30): +1 Body Vibranium Award (within 1:00): An item Recommended Team: * Any single hero, a non-tank works best The knockback attack is Attack, Smash, Smash, Smash. A non-melee oriented character works best. A tank is likely to knock enemies away with the first or second Smash and make completing the combo difficult. G.01.g) Combined Powers 107 --------------------------- Location: Buy for 360 tech bits Objectives: * Execute 10 power combinations * Complete within 3:00 Titanium Award (beat the course): 1250 XP Adamantium Award (within 2:30): +1 Speed Vibranium Award (within 2:00): An item Recommended Team: * Whatever team works best for you hitting power combos (see more below) There's no getting around it: hitting power combos in XML2 is a lot harder than in XML1. First, the margin of error--the time you have between when the two powers hit--has been reduced. Second, the AI won't always use the power you assign to AI Skill, so it's not as reliable. Third, the variety of mutants makes finding good combinations harder. That said, here are some powers that work well for causing Power Combos: * Magneto's Magnetic Shell * Storm's Blizzard * Iceman's Slow Beam and Freeze Beam * Almost any Radial power Beating the Combined Powers courses in XML2 takes a lot more work and experimentation than in XML1. Another possibility is to use a tank with Might to pick enemies up and hurl them into the rest of the team, which almost always causes a Batter Up! combo. If you're having a lot of trouble with it, wait until you level up some more and increase your skill ranks. Power combos generally get easier to hit as your skills increase in rank. But, don't wait too long for this first combined powers course. If you get to the point you can one-shot kill the enemies in this course, it will be almost impossible to beat it. G.01.h) Moves 108 - Stun ------------------------ Location: Buy for 490 tech bits Objectives: * Strike enemies with the stunning blow 10 times * Complete within 2:00 Titanium Award (beat the course): 1500 XP Adamantium Award (within 1:30): +1 Focus Vibranium Award (within 1:00): An item Recommended Team: * Any single hero, a fast-moving non-tank works best The stunning blow is Smash, Attack, Smash, Smash. A non-melee oriented character works best. A tank is likely to knock enemies away with the first Smash and make completing the combo difficult. Also, you'll have to chase enemies down in this course, so having a fast-moving hero gives you a better chance at the Vibranium Award. G.01.i) Qualifying Exam 100 --------------------------- Location: Northern Plaza of Genosha, in one of the prisons from which you free mutants Objectives: * Fight Lady Deathstrike Titanium Award (beat the course): unlock the next grade and 3000 XP Adamantium Award (within 5:00): +1 Focus Vibranium Award (within 3:00): Free talent (skill) point Recommended Team: * Same team you used in boss fight against Lady Deathstrike, unless you bribed her--in which case you'll want Wolverine, Iceman and two other ranged attackers. This is a repeat of your boss fight against Lady Deathstrike, except she won't regenerate. You should be able to easily beat her down in less than three minutes. ======================= G.02: Sophomore Courses ======================= G.02.a) Moves 201 - Trip ------------------------ Location: n/a Objectives: * Strike enemies with the trip maneuver 10 times * Complete within 1:30 Titanium Award (beat the course): 2500 XP Adamantium Award (within 1:15): +1 Focus Vibranium Award (within 1:00): An enhanced item Recommended team: * Any single character with decent melee skills, but not a tank Trip is Attack, Smash, Attack. A tank will frequently knock enemies back with either the first or second blow, so will have trouble finishing the combo. The timing on this combo seems to be a little tricky and you can hit the sequence perfectly but the game fails to record your trip. It almost always seems to fail when you've got your foe backed up against a wall, so try to keep the mobs out in the open. Also, attacks from other mobs will disrupt the sequence, so you may need to quickly blast all mobs but one and then use the combo on that one foe. G.02.b) Moves 202 - Popup ------------------------- Location: n/a Objectives: * Strike enemies with the popup attack 10 times * Complete within 1:30 Titanium Award (beat the course): 3000 XP Adamantium Award (within 1:15): +1 Body Vibranium Award (within 1:00): An enhanced item Recommended team: * Any single character, preferably a tank The popup combo is Attack, Attack, Smash. Unlike the other Moves courses, you'll probably want a tank for this as some of the enemy spawns have strong attacks. You're going to find it difficult to land the sequence of blows, so just keep repeating the sequence to yourself and try to get the rhythm down. G.02.c) Assault 203 ------------------- Location: Nuwali Shrine, from the main entrance, head straight into the next room, then turn left and search for the disc in the room beyond Objectives: * Defeat 30 enemies Titanium Award (beat the course): 3350 XP Adamantium Award (within 3:00): +1 Strike Vibranium Award (within 2:00): An enhanced item Recommended Team: * Characters with good radial or blast powers Enemies will spawn fast and furious. Use characters with good area-of- effect powers and keep blasting. G.02.d) Defend 204 ------------------ Location: Entering the Nuwali Gateway from the Corridors, go straight across the hall and break through the wall on the left Objectives: * Defend Beast * Survive for 2:00 Titanium Award (beat the course): 3500 XP Adamantium Award (defeat 15 enemies): +1 Speed Vibranium Award (defeat 20 enemies): An enhanced item Recommended Team: * Someone with a shield that covers all allies * Someone with a good blast power to keep bad guys away from Beast The thing to worry about here are the ranged attackers. You can deal with melee thugs by staying close to Beast and using a Radial or Blast power to keep the mobs at bay. But the shooters standing outside of range can be deadly. Have a party-wide shield power available; it should also protect Beast. G.02.e) Qualifying Exam 200 --------------------------- Location: Beyonders Sanctum, in an alcove to the left just inside the entrance Objectives: * Defeat Sauron Titanium Award (beat the course): Unlock the next grade and 3000 XP Adamantium Award (within 5:00): +1 Focus Vibranium Award (within 3:00): Free talent (skill) point Recommended Team: * Your favorite characters, the stronger the better This will be just like your mini-boss fight against Sauron, but he's tougher and takes longer to kill. Strong attacks--especially with a team that can hit lots of combos--will help you achieve the Vibranium Award. Which is, really, all you need to worry about as Sauron isn't particularly dangerous. G.02.f) Challenge - Cyclops --------------------------- Location: Jungle Canal, right fork in the path soon after you enter area Objectives: * Protect all bookcases * Survive for 2:00 Titanium Award (beat the course): Accelerated Visor Adamantium Award (defeat 10 enemies): +1 Body Vibranium Award (defeat 20 enemies): +1 Level Recommended team: * Cyclops In challenge courses, you get unlimited energy. Bind Cyclops' strongest beam attack to one of your Powers buttons and use it continuously. If you've gotten Auto Artillery, you might want to set some up in the vicinity of each bookcase. The bookcases are marked with red X's on your map, keep running around to them and blasting everything that moves. G.02.g) Challenge - Gambit --------------------------- Location: Elemental Tomb, water room Objectives: * Defeat 5 enemies * Destroy the stone head * Complete within 2:00 Titanium Award (beat the course): Nanocore Staff Adamantium Award (within 1:00): +1 Strike Vibranium Award (within 0:45): +1 Level Recommended team: * Gambit You have unlimited energy in Challenge courses, so lay about you with Staff Slam or Staff Assault. Once you've killed five enemies, run to the stone head and beat on it with more Staff Assaults. G.02.h) Challenge - Iceman --------------------------- Location: Core Interior, after putting Forge's transceiver in a security console, turn left down the hall and first room on your right Objectives: * Survive for 2:00 Titanium Award (beat the course): Cryogenic Booster Adamantium Award (defeat 15 enemies): +1 Strike Vibranium Award (defeat 30 enemies): +1 Level Recommended team: * Iceman You have unlimited power, so lay about with your strongest skills. If you've purchased some ranks in it, Arctic Burst is probably your best bet. You'll also want Ice Armor for extra protection. ==================== G.03: Junior Courses ==================== G.03.a) Survival 301 -------------------- Location: n/a Objectives: * Survive for 3:00 Titanium Award (beat the course): 4500 XP Adamantium Award (defeat 20 enemies): +1 Body Vibranium Award (defeat 40 enemies): An enhanced item Recommended Team: * Any of your favorites Survival courses are the second-easiest courses in the game (the easiest being the Assault scenarios). Just take your favorite mutants into the scenario and have at the mobs. G.03.b) Teamwork 302 -------------------- Location: n/a Objectives: * Execute 10 power combinations * Complete within 2:00 Titanium Award (beat the course): 4750 XP Adamantium Award (defeat 10 enemies): +1 Strike Vibranium Award (defeat 20 enemies): an enhanced item Recommended Team: * Gambit, Deadpool, Nightcrawler or another mutant with a multiple-attack power * Magneto or Jean Grey if you just want Batter Up! combos By the time you acquire this course, you have some more options available to you than when you tried Combined Powers 107. One good method of hitting combos is to use a power that has multiple attacks (not multiple projectiles, but individual melee attacks). For example, Gambit's Staff Assault has Gambit make a series of four or five strikes with his staff. Put him into a group of mobs, activate Staff Assault and spam the Call Allies button. You should hit at least one combos, possibly even two on that one execution of Staff Assault. Another way of hitting combos is to play Jean Grey or Magneto. Set all your teammates to Defensive AI and use your character to toss enemies at them. You should get regular Batter Up! combos. G.03.c) Assault 303 ------------------- Location: Core Security, from the entrance, go right to the third room on the left and into the back room Objectives: * Defeat 40 enemies * Destroy: all barrels Titanium Award (beat the course): 5000 XP Adamantium Award (within 4:00): +1 Body Vibranium Award (within 2:30): an enhanced item Recommended Team: * Someone with a very destructive radial power * Mutants with good AoE powers Forget about the enemies at first and run to the marked X's on your map and activate your most destructive radial power (e.g. Iceman's Arctic Blast). You'll destroy the barrels and probably a few enemies as well. Then concentrate on the mobs. Try to attack closely packed groups with AoE powers to beat the Vibranium award time. G.03.d) Destroy 304 ------------------- Location: Madri Antechamber, first room after entrance Objectives: * Destroy: all small urns * Complete within 1:45 Titanium Award (beat the course): 5500 XP Adamantium Award (within 1:15): +1 Speed Vibranium Award (within 1:00): an enhanced item Recommended Team: * Sunfire is your best bet for flying and quickly destroying objects Don't worry about enemies, take Sunfire on a flight around the room, dropping down near each marked X on your map and blowing things up. G.03.e) Qualifying Exam 300 --------------------------- Location: Meditation Chamber, in an alcove on the opposite side of the area from the entrance Objectives: * Defeat Sugarman Titanium Award (beat the course): Unlock the next grade and 10000 XP Adamantium Award (within 5:00): +1 Speed Vibranium Award (within 3:00): Free talent (skill) point Recommended Team: * Your favorite damage-dealers Wait until you're in the mid-20s in level and you should be able to take down Sugarman with no trouble. Remember to stay to the sides to avoid his tongue lash and to jump out of the way when he begins flailing with his hammers. G.03.f) Challenge - Toad ------------------------ Location: Perimeter Platforms, second gun platform Objectives: * Defeat Madri High Priest Titanium Award (beat the course): Amphibian Scales Adamantium Award (within 1:00): +1 Speed Vibranium Award (within 0:45): +1 Level Recommended Team: * Toad Excessive use of Tongue Lash is recommended. G.03.g) Challenge - Phoenix --------------------------- Location: Infinite Engineering, from power distribution console, follow hall back towards exit, going straight through door to get the disc from a balcony Objectives: * Defeat 20 enemies Titanium Award (beat the course): Touch of the Phoenix Adamantium Award (within 2:00): +1 Focus Vibranium Award (within 1:30): +1 Level Recommended Team: * Jean Grey In XML2, Jean is more defensive than offensive, still, you can probably find a power or two (Psionic Boom, Dark Phoenix) that will do decent damage. You have unlimited energy, so these challenges come down to spamming a specific power over and over. G.03.h) Challenge - Scarlet Witch --------------------------------- Location: Madri Cloisters, in the room where you make an offering to open the Artifact of Rage room Objectives: * Survive for 2:00 Titanium Award (beat the course): Orb of Chaos Adamantium Award (defeat 10 enemies): +1 Speed Vibranium Award (defeat 15 enemies): +1 Level Recommended Team: * Scarlet Witch While the main objective is not that difficult (if nothing else, you can just keep running away for two minutes), defeating enough enemies to win the higher awards is difficult. Scarlet Witch is not one of the most powerful mutants when it comes to doling out heavy doses of damage. You can spam your most damaging power (unlimited energy), but defeating 10 or 15 enemies will mainly be a matter of luck. G.03.i) Challenge - Sunfire --------------------------- Location: Assembly Factory, cryogenic chamber inside one of the pods Objectives: * Defeat 5 enemies * Destroy: all tactical displays Titanium Award (beat the course): Essence of the Corona Adamantium Award (within 2:00): +1 Speed Vibranium Award (within 1:30): +1 Level Recommended Team: * Sunfire There's no problem with the defeating or destroying parts of the scenario; Sunfire is one of the more destructive mutants in your arsenal. The problem is the time limit for the Adamantium and Vibranium awards. There are 12 tactical displays around the room, so, to destroy them all (the 5 enemies-- and more--will go down with the displays) you'll pretty much need to fly between them and blow up two at a time when you find them close together. ==================== G.04: Senior Courses ==================== G.04.a) Sabotage 401 -------------------- Location: n/a Objectives: * Defeat Infinite Mark V * Destroy: all barrels * Complete within 2:00 Titanium Award (beat the course): 6250 XP Adamantium Award (within 1:30): +1 Body Vibranium Award (within 1:00): a rare items Recommended Team: * Someone with a very destructive radial power Forget about the enemies at first and run to the marked X's on your map and activate your most destructive radial power (e.g. Iceman's Arctic Blast). You'll destroy the barrels and probably a few enemies as well. Then find and concentrate fire on the Infinite Mark V. G.04.b) Defend 402 ------------------ Location: n/a Objectives: * Defend Havok * Survive for 2:00 Titanium Award (beat the course): 6750 XP Adamantium Award (defeat 30 enemies): +1 Strike Vibranium Award (defeat 45 enemies): a rare item G.04.c) Teamwork 403 -------------------- Location: Stockade, in large room leading to Brain Trust, in a side alcove; or, buy for 5,290 tech bits G.04.d) Survival 404 -------------------- Location: New York West Side, straight ahead from the entrance from South Side, on the left side of the street; or, buy for 5,760 tech bits G.04.e) Graduation Exam 400 --------------------------- Location: Buy for 6,250 tech bits Objectives: * Defeat Bastion Titanium Award (beat the course): Unlock the next grade and 12500 XP Adamantium Award (within 5:00): +1 Speed Vibranium Award (within 3:00): Free talent (skill) point This plays out just like your fight against Bastion in the game. Take Storm and use Will of the Goddess to keep your party invincible while beating up on Bastion. Ignore the Sentinels, since they can't hurt you while you're under Will of the Goddess. =================== G.05: X-Man Courses =================== G.05.a) Protect 501 ------------------- Location: n/a Objectives: * Protect: all crates * Survive for 2:00 Titanium Award (beat the course): 10000 XP Adamantium Award (defeat 10 enemies): +1 Speed Vibranium Award (defeat 20 enemies): a rare item Recommended Team: G.05.b) Assault 502 ------------------- Location: n/a Objectives: * Defeat 30 enemies Titanium Award (beat the course): 11000 XP Adamantium Award (within 4:00): +1 Strike Vibranium Award (within 3:00): a rare item Recommended Team: G.05.c) Defend 503 ------------------ Location: Holding Pens, destroy the generator and keep going straight and around the corner to find this disc behind some fencing Objectives: * Defend Genoshan prisoner * Survive for 2:00 Titanium Award (beat the course): 12000 XP Adamantium Award (defeat 15 enemies): +1 Focus Vibranium Award (defeat 30 enemies): a rare item Recommended Team: G.05.d) Challenge - Rogue ------------------------- Location: Perimeter Platforms, third radar array platform Objectives: * Defeat 5 enemies * Destroy: all flaming barrels * Complete within 2:00 Titanium Award (beat the course): Touch of Death Adamantium Award (within 1:30): +1 Focus Vibranium Award (within 1:00): +1 Level Recommended Team: * Rogue ===================== G.06: Legends Courses ===================== / \ /--MEN LEGENDS II----------------------------------------------------- \/ /\---Section H.
