Various Cheats / Hints
Beat the boss easily: When you fight the big skeleton guy with no legs, first, as stupid as it may sound, use your lasers to blow up the head. Mortars don't work well at this part. The the back part of the head will explode, and you have to neurohack his back, which can be pretty tricky. Best thing to do is fly over him when he uses the gigantic laser, BUT DON'T GET HIT!!! It takes away alot of health! Pickup health + upgrades found around the map as much as possible.
Multiplayer Hint : When playing multiplayer, and have friends on your team, a good strategy is let you/your friend go into the biggest mech there is on the map, and the other guy goes in battle armor. The person in the big mech will act as cover fire, and the battle armor will neurohack and eject all the guys. When you get low on health, just steal one of the many mech laying on the ground.
Campaign Hint: If you're low on health and afraid to go in the next battle for fear of your head exploding, try squathing some buildings. Health and other upgrades are almost always in them.

Defeating the Spider Mech
Use your pulse lasers on the coverings on its legs when it gets close to you, and use your missiles when it jump backs. When it charges towards you just run backwards and try to dodge its attacks. If you run to the side then it will attack you with its claws. Keep blasting at its legs and picking up Natalias supplies she drops and you should kill it without no trouble.
Final Boss Battle
For defeating the big Skelton boss at the end while in your battle armor your your mortars, and always try to keep it maxed out. The most important thing to do is to keep moving, (The jump jets work best) and stay away from his laser after you expose the core. He goes down after 4 or 5 solid hits.
This is a hint for people who might be stuck on the snow level where you have to carry Foster's APC truck over the mountains. He tells you to exit your 'Mech and pilot the VTOL after you clear the small area surrounding the VTOL and destroy the comm towers. Don't. Instead take your 'Mech (it should have jumpjets) and fly it in the direction you are supposed to fly the VTOL and destroy the enemy 'Mechs and tanks you encounter. I'm pretty sure the 'Mechs are Catapults. They have missiles, so if you fly the VTOL, they'll blow you out of the sky. So, kill the 'Mechs with your 'Mech, step on the tanks, and use your jumpjets to fly over the lakes. When you reach the last lake, turn back and get the VTOL. If you did this correctly, you should be able to fly back over with Foster and drop him off without getting shot. The only thing to deal with will be a cluster of tanks, but you can just fly right over them. The level will end, and you can start the next one!
Some of you might know this. When you are a pilot you can use a detonator bomb. This works very good in capture the flag because people run in with the VTOL and a Battle armor. If they get close enough, BOOM! This bomb will kill Battle armors and VTOL's in one hit. Mechs will require 3-5. The tank will blow in 2. I don't recommend you be a pilot the whole game though. You can get killed in one hit as you can imagine. You should only use these as mines really. And just so you know, if you place it down and enter a vehicle/ mech, it will still be there.
Escaping the Lobby
In the pre-game lobby, there is a window that you can see a planet from. You can get out of the window and into space with this glitch!
1)Look at the window and press the A button, that should bring you into the Game Info. menu.
2)Press and hold down the B button and run at the fence thing near the window. When you get about three feet away, release the B button.
3)That should get you outside the fence so after that just run out the window and into space.
ps: This will probably take a long time to do so don't think you are doing it wrong if you don't get it immediately.
Secret base in lobby (xbox live required)
There is a secret base in the lobby when you are about to start an xbox live game. first of all you need to do the glitch to get outside of your base. right when your walking in space walk to the blue base if not already there. then stand outside the FRONT of the blue base turn left just a little bit then start walking towards the bright light in the sky then walk around a lil bit till you find the base then there ya go. note: the other 2 bases disappear when you find the hidden base.
In multiplayer, if your Mech is low on health, switch to another one by pressing the Y button to get out of the 1st Mech and into the new 1.
