    Krimzon Guard Vehicles


    Ever wanted to drive around in a hellcat cruiser or a krimzon guard hover-bike without having them chasing you? apart from rarely finding vacant krimzon guard hover-bikes you can. What you have to do is go to the big lake in front of the Naughty Ottsel or Krew's place (same place) look around for the krimzon guard vehicle your looking for and once you find it, steal it, they will immediately start chasing you and will shoot on sight, quickly drive it to the lake and park it next to the low bridge (low bridge being bridge that you have to swim under because its so low) and get out of the vehicle, swim under the bridge but keep looking at the vehicle you have just stolen because it might vanish if you look away from it for too long (true, it hapenned to me) the guards cant shoot you or zap from above the bridge and they cant shoot you from they're bikes or cruisers because the bridge it too low, any way just wait for a while until they're not chasing you anymore and presto you have your own guard vehicle to drive around (Krimzon Guard Bikes are the fastest and strongest bikes, and Hellcat Cruises are the slowest and strongest cars)

    Defeat Metal Head Leader

    The leader of the metal heads is the last boss of the game. After you start fighting him, there is no way to go back to the city until you defeat him, which means you can't collect ammo other than the blaster ammo around the nest, so be sure to come with full ammo of all gun barrels. It is also a smart thing to have all the dark Jak abilities, including giant dark Jak. There are three parts to the boss:
    1) When the battle starts, the boss lays metal head eggs that dont hatch for a few seconds. Use this time to shoot the metal head leader with a few blasts from the peacemaker or whatever you have ammo for. When the eggs start to hatch, dispose of the small metal heads quickly with your blastr or scatter gun, and avoid the leaders single shots of concentrated dark eco.while shooting and running from the smaller metal heads, keep turning towards the center of the nest to land some shots on the suspended boss. When you have depleted 1/3 of its health, it will momentarily lose some supports and limp. get ready for part two.
    2)Part two is identical to part one except you don't get any time at the beginning and flying metal heads will come up from the hole in the center of the nest. Also, the metal head leader will give a double shot of concentrated dark eco, so be sure to jump or roll away twice when evading its shots. Once you diminish the 2nd third of the boss's health, it will jump down from its suspensions and part 3 will begin.
    3)The metal head leader chases you around the nest, pounds the ground causing a circle of dark eco to come from it which you must jump over (like shockwaves from other games), and will shoot a triple shot of dark eco. If you do not have enough dark eco to turn into dark Jak, just keep shooting the boss and keep evading his attacks. Otherwise, mutate into dark Jak, transform into giant dark Jak, and administer a dark bomb. This will deplete more than half of the monster's remaining health, and is a good head start on finishing him off. After that keep evading and shooting until the beast collapses.

    This may take a few times, so if you get low on blaster ammo or need to collect more dark eco for dark Jak, waste a couple lives collecting ammo and shooting all the small metal heads to collect dark eco. After you defeat the boss, sit back and enjoy the ending movie.

    Random stuff and two glitches.

    Haven city roofs by the water and other stuff.

    I noticed that if there is a ledge really high but you cant get there this good to use. Do the long roll, (L1 + X) then immeadietly press X RIGHT AS JAK TOUCHES THE GROUND. If you hear a "fwee" sound and Jak jumps high, you're done. It's kinda hard but you'll master it quick.

    To get on the high roofs on the dock place with all the water and the bridges, get the motorcycle zoomers and go really fast. Pick out a lowish roof and press triangle just before you smack into it. You will stay there for a few seconds if you did it right, but you'll fall of eventually. And if you stole a cop zoomer you'll fall in the water and the guards will never hit you if you keep moving.

    GLITCH TIME!!!!!!! (This might not work but it did for me once.) Turn into dark Jak and dive as deep as you can. [in the water] the screen might turn black and Jak will do the "ahhhhhh" stuff when he falls off a cliff. Once I did this and my game froze.

    Next! When you talk to the oracle and stuff, turn into dark jak and walk out the door. The people will still run but the guards won't attack.

    How to Get on Roofs

    Ok. Now what is the first idea of how to get on the roof? If you said Hover-craft your right. To do this you have to have a fast start on your Hover-craft. It also has to be in the air. Drive to the roof that is not on the docks. I do it on the houses like the one a Baron Praxis hologram (That won't shut up!) is next to. There is also another way. You can only do it on the house with the Baron Praxis thing on it. Jump on the hologram and high jump to the roof. It's that simple! Any questions? If you have some questions, you must not b a good gamer.

    Second Run-In with Praxis

    When You get to the Tomb of Mar(Or something like that) you have to beat the two Tests of Manhood.It takes about an hour to beat 'em, because there are a lot of puzzles and obstacles to overcome. Well, once you get to the end of the challenge, you finally get to the long awaited Precursor Stone. Who's to say that Praxis gets in your way! So I'll tell ya how to beat 'em.
    First you see him jump onto the statue with his giant spider robot. He starts drilling at the stone, but, to keep you occupied, he launches these mini spider-bots. Don't try to punch 'em because they're electrified.
    Take out two or three of 'em at once with the scatter gun.
    Then Prax will launch time bombs all over.
    Now's your chance to strike back. Get in front of one of the bombs and punch it in his direction. If a good shot, it will hit him. Do this until all of the bombs are gone. He'll launch those spider things again, beat 'em, and repeat until his health is at yellow. If his health is at yellow, he'll occasionally jump off and and pop up somewhere and shoot at you. Hide behind the pillars when he shoots. Then he'll do the bomb bit again. When his health is red, he'll aquire the stone, and attach it to his robot. Needless to say you should hide when he blasts with it at you.
    He'll do this and launch bombs and shoot all at the same time. You got to be quick and punch those bombs. Stay close to a pillar, but they collapse if he hits it to much. If you follow this, you should have him beat. But Prax is'nt going down this time either.

    How to get the JET- BOARD

    Go to the micanic (and it's the 3rd or 4th mission after you beat the jet-board compition) she'll tell you to go to Haven forest and when you get in it, the room between the cty and the place you are going(it takes forever to unlock), the micanic will give you the jet-board.HINT: you have to use the jet-board for A LOT of missions.

    Land on People

    On the mission where you have to drive your zoomer thing to a stadium thing in under 3 mins. at the beginning you get on your zoomer and you go a little far over the water and you see two big tower things you go low and you see a little ramp thing exiting the water and you back up and hit the ramp at full speed and you fly through the air and crash into the wall and your zoomer thing explodes (not if you have a strong zoomer) and you land on people not in or in a zoomer. And it is good for killing annoying guards.

    Get Around Easier

    Ever wanted to get rid of that submarine that kills you every time you want to take a swim in the ocean? I figured out how to kill it! First you have to get the "giant dark jack" ability. Go to the pumping station where you have your first mission with Sig. Select dark jack and press l2 again to become giant dark jack. Jump into the water and swim out a ways (remember you must use giant dark jack for the whole time). Then jump up and out as high and far as you can and use your dark bomb into the water
    (x then square) You should punch the land at the bottom of the ocean and if you see a thin stream of bubbles rise from the ocean somewhere ahead of you, it means you killed the sub. Aren't you glad you can go where ever you want now without having a nuisance? Now you can swim where ever you want, and go to new places. You can also go to the windmills out in the water, climb them and get rare precursor orbs!

    Safety from Metalheads in City

    After you beat the Metalhead Mash game, there will be metalheads all over the city. (Mostly in the stadium section at night.) Here a safe way to avoid them: When your surrounded by metalheads get out of there! They can't hurt you when you're on a zoomer. (hover cars) They will hurt you when you're on your jet board. If you run into them.)

    Shortcut to Dig (And Weapons Factory)

    This hint will only work if you have the jet board. Go to the pumping station, then look at the map. look up and you should see a small island and a path. Locate the area, grind down the rail. HINT: DO NOT fall off the rail. A laser will appear and vaporize you. Once you pass the second rail, continue up the path and you find the car that takes you to the dig. If you are looking for a return to the weapons factory, go to the right and into the door. PLEASE READ: I ONLY TESTED THIS WHEN I BEET THE GAME. I AM NOT SURE IF IT WORKS DURING THE GAME

    Lost Worlds

    This isn't really a cheat but when u beat the game you'll need it. At the end of the game some places will be blocked off like one of the strip mines. To get there go to the transportation pad at the spot where u find Samos, go through it and you'll be at the strip mine. then when u go to the pumping station go to the very end and you'll see 2 pipes. Get your jet board out and grind the rails, then go down the path and you'll see the mining station.

    Wastelander Move

    Ok, this is a pretty cool move I found out after I beat the game. What you do is take out your peace maker. Hold the peace maker button (one of the arrow buttons and hold L1. This will activate a charged blat like Vig does when you go hunting with him on one of the very early missions in the game. Let go odd the L3 button and it will fire. Also you can push the R3 button (the joint stick closest to the X button and it will kind of be like a sniper vision.

    Another cool trick I found out is go to Krew's place first. HINT: it's better if you have the peace maker and do the Wastelander Move. Go to the lake part and get on one of those many boats that just sit there. NOTE: they may not all move. You can fire multiple shots from their boat without getting hit. But if the Crimson Guards on the flying shooting "motorcycles come, push L1 and you will crouch crawl in that small trench in the boat. It's the part where it looks like a little window and the part where it could carry cargo. I think you'll get it. Happy hunting!

    Easy Way to Beat "Collect Money For Krew"

    An easy way to beat the mission "collect money for Krew" is get on any kind of zoomer and get out a gun. Collect the money while on the zoomer and shoot any Krimzon guards that are in your way. If you can not get the money while staying on the zoomer, get off and get the money then get back on the zoomer. If you do this you should be able to beat it. Krew then gives you a gun upgrade.

    Gun Locations

    Morph Gun: Scatter Gun. You get this on the mission for Krew where you go with his bodyguard to take out metal heads. You have to complete the shooting range first though.
    It is just like a shotgun. Wide range, close combat etc.

    Morph Gun: Blaster. Again given to you by Krew. This is a long distance, single shot rifle, with decent firepower and laser sighting. You get another shooting range with this.

    Morph Gun: Vulcan Cannon. Yeah Baby!! This hell of a upgrade can take down a wave of Krimson Guard before you can say, "Praxis is a " Hold down R1 to turn this baby into a Gattling Gun. Watch your ammunition supply though!

    Morph Gun: Peacemaker. I Haven't got this mutha but it does more damage than crashing a Hellcat Cruiser(These go down really easily!)
    I'm going to keep searching though.
    Praxis battle: This is the one on the palace rooftops. Its not hard but its not easy either.
    First get your blaster and take any available shots, without getting hit. When Praxis recharges get out the scatter gun and jump+shoot. Repeat until yellow health. Then Praxis fires bombs. Shoot a t him with blaster while dodging. When on red health, avoid tornados and keep shooting. when he charges at you roll then shoot. It'll be over before you know it!

    Complete securi-tank mission easy

    I spent about an hour trying to beat this mission and I came out with a pretty good strategy. In the first room it trys to shoot you so move left to right alot. Then when it breaks the wall start doing long jumps. When you roll press the jump button and you'll go far, fast. This method will get the tank off your back. Then use the bar to swing into the third room. Use the platforms to destroy the things in the middle then move on to the next room. It is pretty easy there on, and in the end just let the tank destroy the barrels.
