.hack Part 1 Infection Unlockables
PS2 | Submitted by The Dot HackerThe Aerial Fleet
After completing the game you will get a message from Roy@Bandai about "Giant of Heavens." You may have noticed a giant mummy-like figure flying in the sky being guided by several ships, (it will cast a shadow and make faint noises if its near you) This is the Aerial Fleet, which you will be able to access after completeing the game. Anyway, the Message will give you the details as well as the area (Hideous, Someone's, Giant) and a Virus Core T which will allow you to gate hack into the area.
-The Area Info-
Delta: Hideous, Someone's, Giant, is a level 30 area and with the water element.
Enemies you will encounter/Elements:
Mu Guardian: Earth
Mystery Rock: Earth
Red Scissors: Water
Be sure to come prepared. Kite should be well equipped to handle the job of the Healer, so bring in BlackRose and Piros as 2 heavy hitters.
Navigate your way through the 2-floored dungeon, on the second floor you'll know when you've reached the boss because his surrounds are much different then the dungeon walls are themselves.
The boss is a Parasite dragon, with 9999 HP and level 30, it can be data drained when 8888 of its HP has been knocked off, and it has 305 SP (not too much) This is why it was a good idea to bring Piros and blackrose: He's Magic Tolerant. Immediately set your party to "Attack" and stand back so it won't come after you. Make sure to give blackrose the "Flame Sword" and Piros the "Devil's Axe" prior to the battle.Make sure they are both at least level 31, too. Blackrose and Piros will often die numerous times, so don't worry about giving them Mage's souls, just heal them and cast Rip Maen when needed. Also make sure to have some restoratives or Rip Synk, because the Dragon can cause confusion. When the Parasite Dragon falls to 1000 HP, it can be data drained. THIS IS ESSENTIAL. The purpose of this entire dungeon was for you to obtain a extremely good weapon that you can convert over to the second game in the series. The minute it hits data drain, DD it immediately to obtain the "Hyakkidouran" a Nasty twinblade weapon with nice damage and skills.
.hack Part 1 Infection Hints
PS2 | Submitted by The Dot HackerBeating Skeith
So here you are, About to fight the last boss in the game. Congratulations on getting this far, but now it's going to get a little tougher.
Travel to Theta server and add Blackrose to your party. The second person can be anyone you want depending on your dependability, if your more of a melee pick a Wavemaster, if your more of a healer pick a Heavy Blade/Heavy Axeman.
Heres a list of items you should bring for the fight:
-Several of each Blood Potion (that increase magical/physical stats for an amount of time)
-atleast 2 dozen mage's souls
-at least a dozen ressurection potions
-a load of health drings (20+)
-and 2 party members that don't suck and are at least level 30.
ITS VERY IMPORTANT that you and your party are 30 or over. it will be a MUCH EASIER time for every level higher than 30 you are. Make sure to give Your party members a few ressurects by using the "Gift" option, they'll use them when they need them in the dungeon. When your ready, go to Chosen, Hopeless, Nothingness.
-The Field Info-
Rated at level 28, this is by far the toughest area you've encountered yet. if you are not above 30, fight portals in the field to gain valuable exp loads and data drain continuously for better weapons and items. Use repth and La Repth as much as possible, save the items you brought for later, at the end of the dungeon. A very tough enemy, the Water-elemented Mantis, can be very tough, but if you have the Masterblades' you cna use the twin dragons attack which will kill 'em quickly. And because you get so much exp from the field, you may want to eliminate all the portals twice, because their will be alot of vicious monsters in the dungeon much harder than these guys.
-The Dungeon info-
Kite should be using the Masterblades' and the Scarab Earrings. The Masterblades' come with 2 powerful physical attacks while the Scarab Earrings allow you to revive people with a spell, saving alot of ressurects.
When you enter the dungeon you'll encounter even more Mantises and Cursed Blades than on the field, along with the Earth Based Mu Gardian. The Mu Gardian can be handled with any wood spells or a good physical attack like Staccato.
On the third floor, you'll encounter more Mu Guardians, and they will start to be accompanied by Goil Menhirs. If you have it, the Holy Tree Mail's Wood spells will come in handy. Whenever you have a fight with numerous enemies including at least 1 Menhir, attack them first. They can cast Rip Maen which allows them to revive one of their fallen allies, so theya re the number 1 priority. The Anshou is a great weapon against the Menhir's because it has a strong Twin Darkness attack.
On The third floor you'll meet a new enemy, Red Scissors. These enemies can be cut down with the Twin Dragon skill from your masterblades' easily, so you shouldn't have too much trouble with them. Make sure to continuously switch from the Anshou and Masterblades' to score critical hits on the Menhirs, Mantises, and Red scissors.
On the fourth floor kite will encounter an Ogre, a Fire-based 2200HPed massively-fat beast. You should hopefully have gotten some water scrolls from the chests enemies have dropped up til now, so use them against the Ogre and hope for a critical hit. If you havn't had the masterblades' and have still gotten this far, data draining an Ogre may give you them.
The fifth and final floor is the easiest of them all, a narrow corridor with no portals. keep going through the doors until you see the Purple gas rising at the foot of one. You should have by now figured out that the purple gas means "The boss is in the next room." THIS IS IMPORTANT: give each party member some warrior blood, knight blood, hunter blood, hermit blood, and beast blood, as well as pure water, well water, burning oil, holy tree sap, and cooked bile. This is very important that you buff them up with everything you can, it will make it so much easier. Make sure everyone's HP and SP are replenished too. Then walk through the doorway.
-The Fight against Skeith-
I had little trouble fighting Skeith, if you came prepared you should too. This boss requires much more time and effort as well as a different strategy to defeat, and since Kite can't rely on his teammates to keep him alive, he needs to be the healer (you can't always count on the wavemaster if you brought one.)
Immediately set your party to "Skills" and rush in with your attack, or if you have 2 melee party members stand back and heal them. Learn the specific signs and patterns when skeith is about to use one of his skills. Make sure to keep kite far enough back that he won't be hit by Skeith's fatal Executioner attack or any of his other close ranged skills. Make sure to watch your teammates HP and SP, administer a health drink if they fall below 400HP, and a healing potion whenever it reaches 200HP. Kite also needs to maintain a steady stream of attack scrolls, using Stone Storm, Raging Earth, and Green Gale, to ensure skeith is continuously taking damage.
Now, Skeith isn't just going to take this. He's going to start using some hard-hitting skills. Judgement, probably his most terrifying skill, traps all 3 party members in seperate blocks of ice regardless of how far away from him they are, and does between 150-400 DMG. this is why its a necessity to use a Pure Water at the beginning of the fight, to cut the damage delt by this horrifying attack.
Data Drain. Skeith Has it. He'll use it. It doesn't destroy your characters like it did Aura and Orca, but it will give them every attribute lowering status in the game. a Restorative and an Antidote will cure your character of their conditions almost instantly, so don't worry. Just make sure you heal them quick.
If kite manages to fulfill his strategic-duties, Skeith will eventually become Data drain-able. Use it A-SAP. His protection against data drain restores much faster than any other monster, so use it quickly. When it is data drained, it will fall to 3000HP, and won't be able to use all of its deadly skills. Don't get cocky, he's still dangerous. Keep pounding on him until his HP reaches 0. Then sit back and watch a hard-earned ending.

PS2 | Submitted by Zeik//HackGetting characters
This is how to get some of the characters you don't automatically get.
Piros- You can get piros in the middle of the game (he's a pretty decent fighter) just keep playing the game and at one part when you either log into the world or switch to the aqua server (the one you start in) he will be waiting at the chaos gate (the big blue portal thing) he will ask you to accompany him on a quests to kill a monster in the dungeon say you will go with him then go to that area and go all the way to the bottom floor of the dungeon and help him kill the boss (the boss is pretty easy just make sure u bring some teammates) after killing the boos he will join you and give you a book that give you physical attack up or sumthing like that
Gardenia- You will have to keep checking the board until you find a section that talks about miss gardinia once you see that just continue playing the game and checking back after every mission you complete then there will be another post on the board that will give you a area you can go to go there get the letter from a girl that in the dungeon there then go to the bottom of the dungeon and deliver it to Gardenia.
Natsume- You will find a message posted on the board talking about where to get a weapon then you will get the area from the message. Go to that area and go into the dungeon and natsume will be there she will tell you that shes scared or sumtin like that. After your done talking to her go to the bottom of the dungeon and open the special chest (i think its called a GOT statue chest)you will get the weapon Natsume wanted and kite will start talking you will return to Natsume at the top of the dungeon automatically she will ask if she can have the weapon $*GIVE IT TO HER*$ and she will make this funny joke lol then she will join your party.
Sanjuro- Getting Sanjuro (Hes a great fighter him and blackrose are a great team) Getting him is just like getting Natsume. You will find a message posted on the board talking about where to get a weapon then you will get the area from the message. Go to that area and go into the dungeon and you will see Sanjuro there complaining how crappy the items are in the chest then go all the way down to the Got statue (special chest) and the weapon Sanjuro wanted is in there you will automatically teleport back to Sanjuro he will ask if he can have the weapon and you will $*GIVE HIM THE WEAPON*$ and he will join you I recommend you use him.
PS2 | Submitted by NeoFleaBeat the final boss with ease
Ok the final boss is kina og hard but if you have the right equipment and if you are at the right level you can stomp him in a matter of seconds (well you know what I mean). Ok, I was a level 37 when I beat the game so if you are below 25 you might want to get cracken. To level up easily just go to a bunch of dungeons and fight the golibins monsters that come from the portals. Once you are confident with your level you need to sell all of your unneeded equipment. Once you have enough money go to the magic shop and buy (and I mean stock up) on status improvers like Hunters blood and all of that. MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE PLENTY OF WELL WATERS!!!!! When he unleashes judgment and all you characters have well water the attack will only take half damage!!!! You should act as the healer and stay away from the beast at all times. Make sure that all os your characters keep all of there status up. Make sure you have plenty of antidotes because he does this data drain to Blackrose and it gives her a bunch of bad stat changes. After you data drain he becomes faster. Make sure that you use scrolls on him, it is important that you use scrolls that hit him from a distance. Through out the hole battle launch your parties skills. P.S. Use Blackrose and Gardina Unlimited Health Drinks and more
This is a cheat code for dummies, but it works. If you need more burning oils or whatever, just keep smashing jars or objects in a room, collect the items and then keep re-entering the room.
PS2 | Submitted by ShazaamHidden items
Usually I reserve my secrets to myself, but this game is too good.... if you haven't pick up .Hack//Infection... it is the only way to get some of the rare items. By selection Convert when startin .hack//Mutation you can import your save file from .hack//Infection... which makes the game much better!
Golden/silver grunties: The golden variety provides +30 hp, silver +15 sp
Go to the church at Delta Forbidden Holy Ground (from .hack//infection) to see scences from the TV series .hack//Sign and to gain golden/siler grunties and rare key items based on the characters from Sign.
Ultimate Axe for Piros and >hack//Liminality:
By watching the anime DVDs .hack//Liminality vol. 1 (included with .hack infection) and .hack//liminality vol.2 (included with .hack//Mutation) with the english subtitles on you can read the japanese keywords from the movies. Using these gives you rare items in all .hack games. Find them for yourselves by watching the movies
**if you got the Ice Bar from one of these 'hidden' dungeons in .hack//infection you can trade with the rare trader Panta for an amazing lvl. 38 rare axe for Piros.
**In Mutation it is possible to find Chinese Food, a rare item similar to the Ice Bar...
Goblin Armour A:
Similar to Infection, if you defeat all the racing goblins (the first four) and equip all four pieces of Goblin armor, the command 'more goblins lvl.2 appears under magic. It is the next verion of summon goblin, and summons *surprise* a giant yellow goblin to fight for you..... like Tsukasa's Guardian (if you didn't understand that you need to watch .hack//Signs on Cartoon network Saturdays at 11 pm,or get them on DVDs.. speaking of which... there are more 'hidden' dungeons to be found by looking of keywords in the show.)
As in Infection certain 'rare traders' appear with items such as books or 'Feng Shui' demanding certain items available only in certain dungeons..... trade your wothless items to these fools for great rare items and equipment. (*hint: get the items first... most usually are books or items like books which raise some aspect of your stats by a point..and remember one status point is a big deal in .hack..this ain't FFX no matter how much you wish it was.. but its still addicting)
Other traders want gold and siler axes for better items.. give them your goodies from the springs of Myst
Ryu books: Use the data drain a certain amount onf time to get each book under the "Book of 1000" section of Key Items. Check these books for various stats from your game and to unlock various movies, arkwork, and songs for the Desktop after completing certain goals...just like in Infection
Raise Grunties to access the newest attraction in .hack: GRUNTY RACING beat the high score to earn super items!!!
