GENERAL HINTS AND PLAYING
Resta Dodge: If you time the technique Resta correctly, you can avoid almost
any attack. The trick is to just cast Resta before your enemy attacks, but long
enough that you can gain life; otherwise you will just get hit.
Easy Meseta: This trick requires an empty file and two controllers.
Create a new file, give the character any name, face, color, etc. Return to the
player screen and select multi-player. Have the new person drop the items. You
should get 300 Meseta some Monomates, Monofluid, and a Mag. Keep repeating this
until you can buy the item you want.
Easy level gain: If you want to gain some levels without much effort and
are around a 25 to 40 level range, try going the forest levels under the hard
difficulty setting. You can usually get about 8,000 experience points from it.
Finding rare weapons: The best place to find rare weapons are at the
Dragon (Episode I) under hard mode. You can find such weapons as Crush Bullets
and Musashis. Its recommended that you enter hard mode at level 30 or high to be
Cheap kills: If you are having trouble in a room, try running out of it
and go back in. Some monsters will probably go into a dormant mode and allow you
to get off a hit or two before they retaliate. This is especially useful against
Refill health: If you are a robot in the game, you can refill your health
after receiving damage from an enemy. Find a safe place to rest and remain in
that spot for a least a minute. Your health meter will go up a little bit at a
Refill TP: If you are playing as a Froce or a Newman, you have the
ability to refill your TP. Find a safe place and wait for it to go up.
Fighting invisible enemies: Use the environment to help you. Enemies such
as Sinow Zoa can easily be spotted by their reflections on glass or water, as
well as the targeting system. However, that can be unreliable at times.
FMV sequences: To view two FMV sequences (one when you create a character
and one new sequence), remain idle at the "Press Start" screen. After
the background pulses four times, one of the FMV sequences will start.
Control loading screen: While going online, move the Analog-stick or
C-stick to move the light around the screen. When entering an area, move the
Analog-stick to turn the tunnel or the C-stick to change the tunnel's speed.
Chair in Lobby: Hold X and press A while standing in the lobby to create
a chair that matches your character. Press A to move forwards or use the Analog-stick
to turn. Press B to get rid of the chair.
Avoid walking near traps and enemies: Normally, you cannot run when near
a trap or enemy. To avoid this, press Start to display the main menu. You may
now run again.
Fun with traps: If you are being attacked by multiple enemies, herd them
into a group then run away from them. When you are about 10 to 15 feet away from
them, set a trap and turn back towards the enemy, so that the trap is between
you and the group. Fire a shot at the trap to set it off (like the preset traps
in most levels). The effect of your trap will still go off, but you will have a
bit more control over it.
Slip through blocked and laser blocked doors: This trick requires a Saber,
Brand, or no weapon at all. Go to a corner of a blocked or a laser blocked door.
Face the corner, then start attacking. Keep doing this, and you will eventually
slip through the door. This trick is useful for getting to new places early.
Note: This trick is difficult to execute.
Ice break: When you are frozen by an enemy, trap, or Boss, move the
Analog-stick Up and Down, or Left to Right very rapidly to break free of the
ice. This works very well when fighting Bosses with Ice Element attacks such as
the Gol Dragon or Sil Dragon. This trick also works in battle mode.
Unlimited number of MAGs: Note: At least two controllers are required for
this trick. Make multiple characters and enter cooperative mode. Have one
character drop his or her MAG and the other pick it up. Go back and recreate the
person who dropped the MAG and go through the process again until you get as
many as desired. Note: You can also do this for Meseta.
Getting Al or Pal Rappies to appear: You must have access to the second
tier of quests in order to do this. Select the Fake In Yellow quest and go
through the first three areas with Rappies, killing them off. Once in the fourth
area with Rappies (where you meet the doctor in the Rappy costume for the second
time), there should be a huge amount of Rappies dropping down. Drop a Telepipe
and examine them all to see if any of them is an Al (or a Pal under the ultimate
difficulty setting) Rappy. If not, enter the pipe to town then quickly return to
the area. The Rappies will drop again. Repeat this procedure until eventually
one of the normal Rappies turns out to be a rare Rappy. It is recommended that
you have the ability to use Ryuker when doing this, as it is cheaper then going
back and forward to pay for Telepipes (350 each).
DEFEATING HINTS AND
Volt Opt: Volt Opt is more difficult than in the Dreamcast version of
the game. If you are an Android, you will get shorted about 8 out of 10 times
that he shocks you in his first form. Kill the center thing that hangs off the
ceiling. Once that is down, shocks stop occurring more often. Shoot Volt Opt in
the monitors when you see him. When the poles appear from the ground, find the
red pole and take it out. If not, you will get a nasty shock that could short
you out for awhile. Repeat these steps with 10 Monomates and 10 Dimates and you
should be fine. Once his first form is done, he will become a huge red robot and
have multiple attacks (but no more shocking). He usually starts by turning his
missile pods towards you, and fires them after three seconds. You can avoid the
missile by running around Volt Opt (get a 3-hit combo in before he fires them,
then run). He will then turn his laser sights on you. Do another 3-hit combo and
run. Keep running and when you hear him powering up, he will drop a huge pole on
you. He does this three times. Yet again, you can avoid this by running. He will
chase you with the laser sights twice. After that, he will heal himself by about
40. During this time, attack him heavily. He will then switch over to his front
and shoot a floating ball at you. Do not stop running or you will be imprisoned
in dirt wall while he charges up to do his ultimate attack. If you get hit with
this ball in multi-player or online mode, call someone over to. They can get you
out by attacking the dirt walls. Repeat this to defeat him and get good
Dubchics: Notice that they return to life. After killing a Dubchic, a
brown orb with yellow rings around it should fall to the ground somewhere in
that area. Destroy it and all the Dubchics will be destroyed.
Garanz: When you are in Mine 2, you will probably encounter a Garanz.
When he shoots his missile, run behind him and he will eventually kill himself.
Note: You can get extra experience when this happens.
Gol Dragon: You should be about level 15 if you are a Hunter and have
Resta, an Autogun, and Monofluids to restore your MP. When starting the fight,
keep shooting at any part of his body. When he is up in the air and is about to
land, get away from him or the rising floor will hurt you. His first attack on
the ground should be an elemental breath attack. It consists of a fire breath
(the weakest one), an ice breath which freezes you (the most dangerous as you
can easily die while you are frozen), and a lightning breath which paralyzes you
for a short while. When he does the breath attack, walk towards him until you
are under his attack and shoot at one of his body parts. He should eventually
take flight again. If he starts spinning in the air, then he is using his
elemental ball attack. Like the breath, it consists of fire, ice (still the most
dangerous), and lightning. During this time, try to evade as many as you can and
heal if needed. After this, he will land again. Keep repeating the previous
steps until he roars and goes underground. When he re-appears, there will be two
of him. Fortunately, one of them is a mirage but it can still hurt you. You can
tell if one is a mirage by killing it. When a mirage dies, you will see a bluish
flash and it will disappear. The mirages also have a lot less HP. If you kill a
mirage, the real one will be by itself again. Just keep attacking and evading as
best as you can until it is dead.
