I got finished with my Very Easy playthrough and finished the guide on 2/28/11, where I then played through the game on Very Easy once more, using my guide as a walkthrough to both beef up, including all points of information, and ensure that it is the most comprehensive collection of strategies and information as it can be. I will endeavor to make this guide spoiler free, so long as you read through from beginning to end without skipping ahead to chapters you haven't reached yet. There are some interesting twists although most might agree that the gameplay in Bulletstorm far trumps it's actual narrative anyway. With my experience playing Bulletstorm I came away pretty impressed as far as gameplay is concerned, and although sadistic I though it was incredibly mastered and has elements I wish would be present in other games, especially it's handling of cinematic quicktime events, like actually using the fire weapon button when a quicktime tells you to shoot something, thus leaving it never feeling like you have to guess or memorize the quicktime events. Another aspect of the guide I will try to flesh out is getting all of the collectibles as you're playing through the campaign, there are newsbots to destroy and "Electroflies" to exterminate. That being said there is still probably dozens of things I've missed and I would be absolutely ELATED for the rest of you, the GameFaqs community to help me fill in the blanks and I will of course abide by GameFaqs' golden rule of giving credit to those who help me. Simply E-mail me at Taenju@hotmail.com to tell me whatever it is I missed and I will update the matter as expeditiously as possible, but please include your GameFaqs username, as I will not accept anonymous tips as I cannot properly credit them otherwise. One quick note about the structure of my FAQ, as with most people, I have implemented a way to use the find command (ctrl+f) to quickly navigate my Faq, if you type the section you're looking for and then FT (which stands for Find Tag for these purposes) without spaces and you should be able to hit "find next" and be immediately zoomed down to the section in question, as no other parts of the faq should conveniently spell the section name with the tacked on FT except the parts you want to get to. ******************************************************************************* ************************************************* *** *** Introduction ************* [IntroductionFT] *** *** Because this game is first in what's obviously going to be a series there are only a few things that may use some clarification and that's all provided in the instruction manual and the description on the back of the box. You play as ex-special ops group "Dead Echo" squad leader Grayson Hunt, formally known as Gray, who very quickly in the game finds himself crash landed on the utopia- gone-hazard-zone planet of Stygia while he pursues mission of redemption against his former superior officer "General Sarrano," conflicted the entire time about whether to just take out his revenge and tempt fate or use Sarrano as his means of getting off the hazardous planet. ******************************************************************************* ************************************************* *** *** Game Mechanics ************* [MechanicsFT] *** *** * * * The purpose of this section is to explain the different game mechanics of the game in the order they are introduced to the player, and I will give any extrapolated information that I think the player would find useful. * * * - Movement: in its simplest explanation, it is simply your method of locomotion in this game, using the left analogue stick to move in the direction you push it, often used in conjunction with the right analogue stick to manage the camera. - Environmental Interactions: This is handled in two ways, one with the coveted Quicktime events, which has you pressing button prompts as they appear on the screen, and the other as simply pressing the action/reload button when you see it on an object or obstacle to traverse into a new area of the world. - Camera: when used along with movement, managing the camera feels just as natural as you would run around and be turning you head, because, after all, your head pivots and can turn. You use the right analogue stick to turn the camera in the desired direction. Most of the time, you shouldn't even be aware you are doing these actions before too long. - Combat: Combat is handled with a control scheme very similar to most First- Person shooters out in the market today, the left trigger aims in the sights, the right trigger fires the weapon, and the face buttons dictate the other actions. The left bumper (or L1 for PS3 owners) uses the leash, unique to this title, and the right bumper (or R1) sets up the secondary "charge" attack with whichever weapon you're holding. Pressing in or "clicking" the left control stick with also make Grayson crouch Pressing Y (triangle) switches to your previous weapon, while holding it for a second brings up the weapon select display, and using the D-pad's left, right, or up selections to choose your weapon. Pressing X (Square) reloads your weapon, as well as interacts with the environment to pull switches, press buttons, or traverse the environment. Using the B (Circle) button uses your kick attack, which makes most enemies hover in the air, and easier to set up for tricky stunts. And lastly holding the A (X) button causes your character to sprint, while quickly pressing it twice makes him go into a slide to quickly roll up on your enemies. - Leash: The most unique weapon sported in this game, the leash allows you to pull a lot of enemies or objects right to you, and sets them up nicely for the many kinds of "Skillshots" you may want to pull off, and combined with the kick you are given ultimate control of how to destroy your opposition. This is also later upgraded with the "Thumper" attack, with launches your target and all other enemies near him into the air and leaves them all hovering for a chance to pull off some truly spectacular mass devastation moves. - Skillshots: These are the crux of the game, your goal is not just to defeat your opposition, but do it with strategy and creativity, the more fantastically you kill your enemies the better Skillshots you pull off and the more "Skillpoints" you earn. These Skillpoints are then used at dropkits, that you connect to by using your leash, to upgrade the capacity and efficiency of your weapons, as well as purchase additional ammunition. This system is modified by the difficulty you select. - Difficulty Levels: Ranging from 5 levels of Very Easy to Very Hard, the game gets harder in the sense that it's harder to kill enemies with just pure bullet power, enemies can kill you faster, as well as adjusting the prices dropkits. Where one playing very easy can purchase a clip of ammo for about 80 skillpoints on very easy, it would cost about 260 on very hard. On the higher difficulties you will be forced to keep creative to gain skillpoints, and tactical to avoid being defeated, so if you're going to attempt Very Hard; be prepared to save every precious bullet of those big guns. - Collectibles: In this game there are certain collectibles, usually just to rid them from the world in one way or another, and there are three sets, the bottles (of the alcoholic nature, which is used for the intoxicated stunt), the newsbots which need destroying, and the "Electro flies" which you see in 6 bug swarms in various spots in your travels. - Checkpoints: Simply spots of the chapter where your recent ventures are saved, so should you die, this is the point at which you will be returned to. This game is saturated in checkpoints and thankfully if you die or get stuck you're never replaying more than a single room or hallway. This is also helpful because it is not uncommon to get stuck in the environment, and where spamming the slide, kick, and crouch commands don't free you, the "Restart last checkpoint" tool in the pause menu will often save you and let you continue on with the mission. ******************************************************************************* ************************************************* *** *** Walkthrough ************* [WalkthroughFT] *** *** So now its finally time for the part you probably skipped right down to this section to see, the walkthrough itself. Along with revealing all the necessary steps I will put in as many collectibles in as I know to give you the best help possible. If I missed anything that you've found please E-mail me at Taenju@hotmail.com and it will be updated, I will not accept anonymous contributions so include your GameFaqs username so that I may properly credit you. And also remember, if you're reading this on a site other than Gamefaqs.com or other sites under the Gamespot network, then it is posted without my consent, report the user who posted my work! ************************************************ *** Prologue *** ****************** *[PrologueFT]* *** *** * * * Prologue - On the Road to Hell * * * /*** Don't Delegate Important things to the Intoxicated! *Note* There are no collectibles in the prologue, so don't feel like you have to go searching, just have fun with the script. There is however, an achievement; Pointless for getting 10 headshot kills before hitting the first dropkit (beginning of Act I - Chapter 1) so rack up those headshots! We open up with an exposition showing a ship, crewed by Grayson Hunt and his squad, and you have a bounty hunter, squirming, tied to a chair, and a beer bottle duct taped to his head. This is where the game introduces how it handles its quick time events, you will aim your gun at the bottle above the hunter's head with the left trigger, shoot it with the right, and then kick him out to the air lock with, surprise, the kick button! You are then given control to move Gray about in the ship. That cretin out of the way time to get back up to the crew, but Rell tries to open the door and it's crap, time to force it open yourself, go up and hit the interaction and get on with your day. During this you turn around though and out the window you see the Bounty Hunter... wait... what happened to the duct tape? More importantly though he has a grenade! Before you can ponder either mystery it explodes and you're vented to the back of the room. Gray cursing, you must alternate the triggers to claw your way across a pipe to hit the blast door switch, crisis averted. Now go on ahead and start clearing through the rubble by kicking the panel in your way and... whoops... there goes a screen, continue climbing over the rubble and a couple smart comments from Rell, as well as making fun of tutorial sequences, you get to follow him crouched under the last bit of rubble and back to the crap door. It's stuck so Gray decides to just screw it, you then get to shoot the control panel and force it open. Follow the new face, Doc, and as you walk down the hallway another friend on the intercom informs you that they're warping and you need to get on deck pronto, so following the man's impatience, follow the on screen prompt and sprint over to the elevator and smash the buttons to send it up. A cutscene argument between crew later puts you in front of the warship Ulysses, and has you in an on-rails shooter segment of the game that will also be used throughout the game. The aiming reticule is almost impossible to see, especially when firing, but just hit the Ulysses' guns until your ship takes damage. Ishi then performs a heroic push-you-out-of-the-way move and takes a direct explosion on-deck, what was that about not dying for Gray's revenge? Undeterred by this turn of events, Gray decides this is the end of the road, and that he'll use his ship to take General Sarrano on the Ulysses down with him, some poetics later and following the interaction prompt sees your ship making a kamikaze run through the core of the Ulysses and set for a crash course on the planet below, and a flashback occurs on impact, time to find out why Gray's crew is there in the first place... You are now above a city metropolis, the camera floats you back down into control of Gray again walking down the side of a building, thanks to some cool gravity boots from Doc. Some more funny comments from Rell and you'll walk down the building and kick the latch to the elevator ahead, sending down to the street below, so much for the covert wall-walk approach. Anyway, continue on to the breach prompt and have Gray jump, execute the target Novak, and land right-side-up on the floor below. As Gray gives the order to blow up Novak's computer, Ishi instead searches it and learns that the good General has been sending Gray's team to hunt down innocent civilians, that gluttonous slime! After opening a communication with Sarrano and the confrontation proceeding it, Gray cries revenge and shoots the communicator. His squad then moves to leave when they come across a little girl, Ishi goes to placate her when security finds you and a firefight ensues. This is your first exposure to the game's typical battlefield, simply trade bullets with the security and before long another cutscene sees Ishi take a hit, and Grayson then making a heroic dive to absorb the next would-have-been- lethal bullet for Ishi, you are then woken up from your flashback. There's Rell again, snapping you out of your daydream, after hazily regaining your composure, you move over to find Ishi on the ground, badly hurt. Follow everyone through to the elevator and send it down to the med-bay, afterwards kicking the tech junk out of the door jam to continue. Determined to revive him through sheer will or magic, Gray convinces the Doc to attempt cybernetics to revive Ishi, but this requires power cells, and you don't have any, though Gray and Rell surmise that the engines from the crashed escape pods you saw earlier will have the power cells necessary! With a newfound purpose you and Rell set out to find one of the escape pods, but on your way out you see a new friend, a psycho running right for you! Follow the on screen command and kick him into the electrical wires ahead of you, and do this with his buddy who came with him, that or you could just fill them with lead and be done with it, but that's less spectacular. Continue down the other hallway, running into the next hallway and there's more enemies to kick into electrical wires! (The next few straightaways are very kick-friendly, just a tip) Keep on going and you get to slide down a collapsed tunnel of your ship, as you're sliding along you get outside and, oh , hey, another local! Perform a sliding kick as you come out of it to send him careening into some sharp metal pikes behind him. Mosey on forward and there'll be quite a few more enemies to defeat, there's no electrical wires or sharp objects, but you can still kick them off the cliff face to your right, although it may really be easier to just shoot them at this point. After you're done mopping up walk forward to a soldier dude showing off, using a gun and a fancy leash, only to be crushed by a psycho combat car. With him dead, Gray sees an opportunity to obtain a new toy, go over and pick up the electric leash. After some intense bonding process with the leash, you are tasked with ripping open the escape pod with it. As Gray tells Rell to get a power cell and he retorts, you then move over to leash another piece of debris and offer an alternative path back to your ship cause, let's face it, you slid down out of the ship and it'd be too much of a hassle to crawl back up. Continue on, leashing another piece of debris out of a narrow tunnel of rubble to crawl through and at the end the game dramatically slows down, and tells you to use the leash button, and you may or may not see the enemy target ahead of you through the barded metal frame in front of you. Leash twice to pull two enemies right to you and to their doom, and the metal frame falls to allow you passage. Move further on ahead and there's some more dudes, remember how the previous segment was kick-friendly? Well this segment is leash-into-barbed-frames friendly, either shoot the enemies or just pull them all into the iron skewers and move forward to yet another trio of dudes to do the same to. Now you're finally back to the ship, continue onward inside and run through the hallways back to the med-bay to give the good Doctor the power cells. With a shoo out the room you let him start the operation, go to the left side window to observe. Looks like things are underway when things get hairy, a psycho comes down the vent and takes out the dock, drags him to the window, and is jerk enough to skewer him right in front of you. There's no time to react though as Rell alerts you to enemies in the room with you, start killing a few before an explosion takes you out. Dazed, disoriented, you see freaks giving Rell grief, then a mechanical hand pulls you up to a sitting position, it's Ishi, now with monotone reverberating robot voice! You're surrounded, then Rell grabs a bright glowing container and in a final act of defiance, orders you to shoot him, pull the trigger and be blacked out once more. ************************************************ *** Act I *** ****************** * [ActIFT] * *** *** Stygian Badlands * * * Chapter 1 - Just Like the Old Days* * * /*** This cocky leash is analyzing my performance! *Note* There are no collectibles in the entirety of Act I either, just enjoy your own mayhem. You wake up in the same spot you blacked out in, only you can see outside, the entire half of the ship ahead of you was blown away in the explosion. You are alerted to Ishi, in pain from the cybernetics, with blue lights indicating he's conscious. Gray offers his sentiments to help but the lights go red and the AI in Ishi's cybernetics goes on about no possible calculation that Gray could possibly help him, then Gray makes himself an asset by revealing he has the leash, which doubles as a communicator for Sarrano's soldiers, conveniently. We also learn that Sarrano is alive, and that one of his soldiers, a woman by the name of Trishka, has activated her tracker to lead soldiers to the General's protection. Gray instead decides to use this as a beacon to Sarrano in plans of forcing the General to get him and Ishi off-world, and this starts the next chapter. Run on ahead, enjoying the cool desert/mountain scenery, walk across a giant skeleton bridge, and find the dropkit ahead, these are your ammo and upgrade stations, sprinkled amiably throughout the game. As the dropkit loads files into your leash, the Skillshot mechanic is activated, and you are prompted with opening up the Skillshot Database with the Back button (Select). From here on in you'll want to keep these maneuvers in mind, because you'll want to earn as many skillpoints as possible, performing as many skillshots as possible, especially on the harder difficulties as only few places in the game actually sport perpetually respawning enemies and you'll only have so much of this game's form of currency to buy upgrades and ammo. On the easier difficulty stuff is cheaper, so you don't really have to worry, but on Hard and Very Hard you'll start pinching points to get enough ammo to get through stages, making pulling off the biggest skillshots with the fewest ammo a big priority, you don't want to be stuck with only your leash and kick to fight off full battlefields of enemies. My suggestion is upgrade the standard ammo capacity on most guns, and upgrade the first gun's (Peacemaker Carbine's) charge capacity, while only unlocking the charge for other guns, odds are you're only going to have a few charges at any given point in the game and there's no sense in having 9 charge slots when you never carry more than 3, but that's only my suggestion. Big Skillshots often depreciate after you've pulled them off once already, in varying degrees, for instance a Skillshot that gives 250 the first time may only give 50 afterwards, or 750 to 250, so this encourages trying to use all the available skillshots to maximize your skillpoint wallet given only a finite amount of enemies at most given times. *Note: I will give a list of mentioned skillshots right before the first time I name them. *Skillshots: Headshot: Kill an enemy with a shot to the hea [Peacemaker Carbine] Gag Reflex: Kill an enemy with a shot to the throat [Peacemaker Carbine] Full-Throttle: Use bullets to kill two or more enemies without lettings go of the trigger [Peacemaker Carbine] Enviro-Mental: Kill one or more enemies using an evironmental explosive [General] Anyway, once you've formed your stand on how you plan to purchase ammo and upgrades and how much or little you're going to adhere to the skillshot database, unleash from the dropkit and face down a bunch of freaks from beyond the gate in front of you, you'll be done when you earn 1200 Skillpoints, which is 120 standard kills, a couple dozen "Headshot", "Gag Reflex" or "Full Throttle" skillshots, or just a simple half a dozen massacre by shooting the red barrels behind them for a bunch of "Enviro-Mental" Skillshots. *Skillshots: Voodoo Doll: kill an enemy by flinging them into a sharp metal object [General] Pricked: Kill an enemy by flinging them into a cactus [General] Bullet Kick: Kick an enemy and shoot him to death in mid-air [Peacemaker Carbine] Bullet Slide: Slide an enemy and shoot him to death in mid-air [Peacemaker Carbine] Once that's done re-leash the dropkit, upgrade the Carbine some, then go right back around and continue through the now lowered gate. Up ahead are some more enemies with some barbed metal frames and cacti, this is a good chance for getting the "Voodoo Doll" Skillshot against the melee enemy, kicking the next one against a cactus for "Pricked." The next couple you can do "Bullet Kick" and "Bullet Slide" on pretty easily to round out your Skillpoint bank pretty well to start off with. *Skillshot: Mercy: Shoot an enemy in the balls and kick or shoot his head off [Peacemaker Carbine] Move on ahead and you'll come across a storage yard sort of complex, and notice crates with red barrels everywhere, this place is really geared towards "Enviro-Mental" kills, score some easy points by aiming up at the barrels to kill everyone outside, and once the gate opens leash the barrel you can see into the enemies who came out to shoot you, then move in and aim up at more barrels to kill everyone in the yard, that ought to be a good 2,000 points right there. If you find any stragglers you should also try to get Mercy, as that's not one that's usually obtained on accident. If you managed to use up a lot of ammo, either by ignoring the carbines dropped by enemies or going for something other than Enviro-mentals, there is an ammo crate in the very back of this area for a reload, turn right around afterwards and go up the ramp up to the catwalk. Go across the catwalk and the game will inform you of it's reward for your good reflex in observing significant events, when the screen prompts hold the left trigger to watch something important for up to 500 points if you pressed it early enough and held it down the entire time. *Skillshots: Trip Wire: Shoot a running enemy in the legs to trip him, then finish him off on the ground [Peacemaker Carbine] Rear Entry: Kill an enemy by shooting him in the butt [Peacemaker Carbine] Graffiti: Kill an enemy by kicking him against a surface [General] This has you see the security gate ahead, go down the other side of the catwalk and move toward it to trigger a bunch of melee freaks and a couple gun-toters. This is a good chance for both "Trip Wire" and "Full Throttle" as well as "Rear Entry" and "Graffiti" if you can finesse it enough due to the plentiful melee enemies running toward you and the nearby crate surfaces. If you didn't get some of these don't worry, the game is 100% filled with chances to get these easy ones so don't feel like you have to get them now, but with enough finesse you could get all the skillshots available at the start before even entering the mining complex. After you're finished maiming everything in sight go and Grayson kick the door of the gate... ouch, note to self; don't kick anything on a pivot hinge. Anyway move forward and pull the switch to get to the next chapter. * * * Chapter 2 - Last Train from Explosion Town * * * /*** Whoever co-opted this joint, they aren't getting their deposit money back... You arrive underground at the entrance of a mine, run forward to find another dropkit, where you probably have enough skillpoints now to unlock the Peace- Maker Carbine's Charge ability, which is basically firing a concentrated 100 bullets at once, pretty much vaporizing the target in molten lead, for those on easy difficulties it's time to stock up and start attempting the Carbine Charge Skillshots. Anyway, once your done shopping turn around and kick the grate in the wall to continue. You'll be sent sliding down a water shute do a man doing his business not expecting a thing, slide kick him for a rude interuption of a Voodoo Doll skillshot and turn to your right for more enemies to shoot. *Skillshots: Boned: CHARGED: Kill an enemy within a moment of getting them in your sights [Peacemaker Carbine] Overkill: CHARGED: Execute a headshot with the Charge Shot [Peacemaker Carbine] X-Ray: CHARGED: Kill two or more enemies with a single Charge Shot [Peacemaker Carbine] With the Charge you can now do "Boned," "Overkill," and even "X-Ray" if you line them up right, and provided you have charge shots. Continue forward into a gyrocopter hangar, where Ishi suggests destroying the copters, good plan until the freaks retaliate. *Skillshots: Parashoot: Leash an enemy out of a gyrocopter and kill him before he lands [General II] Either just shoot them or pull them down from their catwalk to get rid of them and then the hangar door will open revealing an operating gyrocopter, leash it and time it just right to pull the pilot out of the seat, kill him before he lands on the ground for the "Parashoot" skillshot. There's also an ammo crate to the back left of the room if you're facing the hangar door, if you're low. Go on outside and resupply at the dropkit, and run (or slide) down the stairs to the right, and enemies will appear as Gray explains there should be a place to charge Ishi's batteries in the facility somewhere. At the bottom of the stairs there's a red barrel to kick towards the enemies, or failing that one behind them to pull into one, either way cap them and move on. A couple more enemies and an easily visible ammo crate up ahead, there's also a second gyrocopter, and another chance for Parashoot if you didn't get it the first time. When they're dead Ishi will fix the control panel ahead then you pull the level to send the platform down. *Skillshots: Pancake: Flatten an enemy with a kicked object [Secret] As you go down you may notice freaks populating the battlefield below you, you can get to them as soon as you get all the way down, kill the trio that stay to fight and follow the last back to the building ahead and see them drop metal doors as cover, big mistake, go up and kick the doors to smash enemies against the opposite wall for "Pancake," simple enough, and kill the stragglers before moving through. *Skillshots: Flak: Destroy a gyrocopter using an indirect explosion On the other side of the building you'll see a gyrocopter and more bullet fodder, and hey! Red Barrels! Shoot them for a 2 second finish to a 2 minute fight and easily 1,000 points from "Flak" (Killing a gyrocopter with an explosion) and a crapload of Enviro-Mentals. You're not likely hurting for ammo at this point but in the off-chance you are, around the back on the left side of the building that's now on fire (if you shot the red barrels) is a couple ammo crates, not really a big deal considering there's also a dropkit inside said building, but whatever, move on. *Skillshots: Skyjack: Kill a gyrocopter pilot while the vehicle is airborne Follow Ishi to a ramp with cover and a turret dude up above, if you're willing to part with a charge that's the simplest way to rid yourself of him, then go up and take up the big freakin' minigun he was using, time for serious action. A couple dudes likely appeared as you grabbed the gun, scrap them, then turn your eyes to the horizon in another observation moment (so left trigger), as a series of gyrocopters come to be fodder to the minigun! Before long though the battery depletes and you have to kill the last gyrocopter again, another Parashoot chance, "Skyjack" if you're lucky enough to headshot the guy, but unlikely without later weaponry. *Skillshots: First in, Last Out: Get an enemy airborne, kill a different enemy, then kill the first before he lands [General II] Afterwards the nearby steel wall lowers to allow passage, walk on through to another building lowering a bridge with 2 more freaks to die by bullets. This is a good chance for "First in, Last Out," just leash the back dude, Carbine Charge shot the second, then kill the first dude, and you should get it if done fast enough. *Skillshots: Vertigo: Send an enemy down a huge drop [General] Anyway, pull the lever ahead and open the door, and a giant plate will slowly move ahead, to may think moving cover at first, but enemies still shoot your feet, kill the half dozen or so enemies ahead, possibly kicking a couple off the walkway for "Vertigo" skillshots, and another Gyrocopter will be ahead so try leashing it, but before long the panel you're on falls and you're in a giant room with a dropkit! Sweet, resupply and march on. *Skillshots: Shocker: Kill an enemy by flinging them into a an electrical source [General] As you run forward a psycho will scream to run away and close a door on you, they should know better! Kick the door and Pancake the dude, then you'll find yourself in a room with a giant generator, start kicking the poor suckers nearby into it for some "Shocker" skillshots and let Ishi charge up, there's another observation moment so ready the left trigger as he charges. Now Ishi is all nice and fed and ready to go, but he overloaded the generators, great, now sprint outside past the giant electrical machinery to an action prompt and climb your way to safety! Alternate left and right triggers, getting 25 skillpoints each time you get it right the first time, to the next room. There's a single enemy on the ahead bridge, kill him, possibly with a kick off the edge, then turn facing the bridge to route the melee dude incoming. Run again towards the next battlefield to see a bunch of guys spring from the cover, start kicking or even better, line up some charge shots for X-Ray if possible, and keep going. *Skillshots: Bossed: Kill a miniboss [General II] Fire in the Hole: When a miniboss is stunned, kick him from behind, then shoot him in the butt [General II] Kick off: Remove a miniboss's helmet, then when he's stunned again, kick his head off [General II] Whiplash: Remove a miniboss's helmet, then when he's stunned again, leash his head off [General II] Up on the upper catwalk is another trio of baddies, take them out and an observation even will introduce you to the miniboss, he absorbs full clips of Carbine bullets and is worth a "Bossed" Skillshot regardless of how you handle him, but it's best to couple it with another miniboss Skillshot, by either stunning him with enough bullets and kicking his helmet off, stunning him again and kicking his head off, or stunning him and kicking his butt armor off and filling his rear with lead, or taking his helmet off and stunning him again to leash his head off, however you handle it, you'll get a lot of minibosses to do these with, and each one can be a mountain of skillpoints. One last tip, a charged shot immediately stuns them most of the time, so if you have a couple, go ahead and use them. After dealing with the miniboss, run up the ramp to the conveyor train and Gray will automatically pick up another minigun, aim it back down the ramp at the area you just came from and start mowing down incoming freaks, try to kill lots of enemies in a row before letting go of the trigger or discharging heat for a lot of Full-Throttle skillshots, I suggest aiming to the left at the ramp where they have to come up after dealing with each wave of dudes immediately in front of you. When they're all dead a cutscene will put you on the train speeding away from the massive grindwheel that was loosed and is now looking to mow you down, you can move around on the train, but this is almost literally an "on-rails" segment. You still have the minigun, but aren't hampered by a depleting energy bar so you've got as much time as you need, and your first task is to mow down a bunch of pursuing psycho cars, usually if you aim well enough you an get 2, maybe 3 dead in each bullet spray for a couple Full-Throttle skillshots. After a couple dozen of those, it's then time for another train chasing you, quickly shoot the two red barrels on board, this will kill a lot of the fodder and leave the miniboss on the left side stunned so you can kill him with the spray of the minigun. Soon afterwards the Gyrocopters will enter the fray, as soon as they do, provided you took care of the miniboss, you then ignore the train and focus on the copters, same thing, try to kill 2 or 3 of them with each burst to maximize skillpoints, a rock will come down and pole-vault the pursuing train and leave just the copters to get rid of. A Banshee helicopter will then start chasing you, with 2 "land-torpedo" type missiles that you have to get rid of, afterwards you can't really kill the helicopter, but you can wait for a giant red tank to pass by on the right and shoot it to stave off the helicopter. Aim then to the left and shoot the next tank to force the grindwheel off-course because it's now catching up to you. There will be a few more gyrocopters, kill them if you can, to increase your survivability, but stay focused for another tank passing by on the right to again stave off the grindwheel. The Wheel will disappear for a moment behind the cliffs, but another train, this time with a giant ramming plate, with come up on your right, you should see little red dots denoting a hard-to-see red barrel near the center looking at the side of the train, try to hit those to kill some enemies and stun the on-board miniboss. That train will then form up behind you, kill the miniboss who should still be stunned then aim at the other red barrel you can now see on the right, this should get rid of most, if not all, the opposition on that train. The other train will keep pushing you, an upcoming observation event will alert you to the Grindwheel re-materializing across a ravine, taking out the train bridge there, another observation event will alert you to Ishi's futile attempts to hit the breaks, when that fails, it's only a short moment's wait before you are blacked out in the crash-n-fall. * * * Chapter 3 - Whatever it is, it's Pissed * * * /*** Make like a Kaiser and Roll! Waking up on a miraculously horizontal piece of wreckage below the bridge, make your way across the pipe alternating triggers for points then use the action button for a leap of faith and a less than soft descent to the jungle river below. You'll find a dropkit down there and after moving forward on the path, a couple new freaks with flareguns, kill them and pick one up! You now have a new weapon with which to get skillpoints for but they aren't revealed on the skillshot database just yet, either way move forward, probably best switching back to the carbine as you likely only have 1-2 shots collected off the dead flaregun owners. *Skillshots: Fish Food: Kill an enemy by flinging them into a body of water [Secret] Sprinting forward a group of 4 freaks will come running, a well placed charged Carbine shot will net you a few X-Ray shots, anyone you miss can be kicked over the cliff to the left for some Vertigo or "Fish Food" skillshots. Ahead there's another couple flaregun guys and an observation event to reveal your next goal, a dysfunctional gyrocopter you now hope to fix and use to leave. There should be also another gyrocopter enemy and after killing everyone near you, try your hand at sharp-shooting the guy who parked the banged up copter on the far cliff, for me he fell off the cliff and I shot him on the way down for a bullet kick.... weird... anyway afterwards sprint into the cave ahead. Kick out the boards blocking your path, listen to Gray appreciate the view, then slide under the rock ahead, an observation event will have you looking at bloody human skeletons, a pleasant sight, although there's an ammo box to help you out. Keep walking and the floor will again fall down underneath you, and you are now in a pathway with a bunch of giant eggs, the only way is through so start kicking them and shove onward. Before long after doing this though you hear a guttural monster roar and a timer appears, at the fork go left because right is a dead end, and after getting past all the eggs and vaulting over the rocks SPRINT FOR YOUR LIFE! GET TO THE CHOPPA! Ishi manages to get the gyrocopter fixed, but the source of the wailing gives chase, and Ishi with eyes focused ahead notices the train you were on earlier, hanging by a thread, follow his prompt to shoot it and watch it crash into the back of what looks like the neck of the creature, shadowed in giant cloud of dirt. The victory is short lived though, as the gyrocopter gives way and you are sent crashing into the mists below, thus ending Act I. ************************************************ *** Act II *** ****************** * [ActIIFT] * *** *** Paradise Lost * * * Chapter 1 - Damsel in Distress * * * /*** Classical music explains WWIII! *Newsbots 3/3 *Electro Fly Swarms 5/5 You open up on the banks of the river below, Gray helping Ishi out of the water, and after a mixed response from Ishi you both get up and start Act II, and immediately in front of you is another Dropkit, now with Screamer ammo and upgrade options! *Skillshots: Gunslinger: Score two or more FAst Draws or Snapshots in a row [Screamer] Fast Draw: Kill an enemy the moment you have them in your sights [Screamer] Snapshot: Kill an airborne enemy the moment you have them in your sights [Screamer] Surgeon: Kill an enemy by shooting only one single limb repeatedly [Screamer] One Hit Wonder: Perform a clean execution by using only a single bullet to kill the enemy [Screamer] One may also notice that in the skillshot database, many gunslinger-type skill- shots are now laid out and explained, one even is called "Gunslinger." Continue forward and find about a half-dozen dudes to now test out your revolver prowess and see if you can nail some of the more tricky ones, like "Fast Draw" or "Snapshot," doing either two times in a row nets the aforementioned skillshot, as well as "Surgeon" and "One Hit Wonder." *Skillshots: Exterminator: Kill an entire swarm of electro flies [General] *Electro Fly Swarm 1/5 Afterwards continue onward, and be introduced to the game's concept of collectibles! And no, it's not beer bottles first, as Ishi eludes to, it's actually a swarm of Electro flies right before you enter the building, to kill these guys just patiently shoot them when they pause in flight, as they pause in the same spots every few seconds. Doing this gets you the "Exterminator" skillshot, and again every time you find a swarm. You can either do this immediately, or if you right along the right wall towards the enemies it's a perfect line-up for X-ray as well, possibly a four hit line. *Skillshots: Afterburner: Kill an enemy who is on fire [General] Enlightenment: CHARGED: Shoot an enemy in the head with a flare and let it explode [Sreamer] Misfire: CHARGED: Flare an enemy but kill him before the flare explodes [Screamer] Fireball: CHARGED: Shoot an enemy with a flare so it explodes and kills another enemy [Screamer] Fireworks: CHARGED: Explode an enemy who is 20 meters or higher in the air [Screamer] Firefighter: Ignite three or mroe enemies and kill them while they burn [Screamer] The observant may also notice that there is also a dropkit in the pool below and to the left, now you are offered the Screamer's charge attack, firing a flare at an enemy that explodes lighting a bunch of enemies on fire, so one can also do this to get the "Afterburner," "Enlightenment," "Misfire," "Fireball," "Fireworks," or possibly even "Firefighter" skillshots. *Newsbot 1/3 After you've decided which of the many new options to take, continue onward and the turn ahead reveals another collectible, the newsbot, 28 of which are spread throughout the game, simply shoot it or, if you don't want to waste ammo, just kick it into a wall or object, the explosion will hurt, but it doesn't kill you, even on Very Hard and offers 500 skillpoints per bot. *Skillshots: Fast Food: Ram an enemy to death with a hot dog cart [Genera] Sausage Fest: Kill an enemy using a hot dog cart explosion [General] Gotcha: Leash a Creep or Skull Flaregunner and kill them in mid-air [General II] Friendly Fire: Kill an enemy by flinging them into the fire of another enemy [General II] Blind Fire: Kill someone while blinded by a flare [General II] Once destroyed, run forward and crouch under the debris to find another fight of about half a dozen strong, this is a good area for Misfire specifically, just fire a Charged Screamer at an enemy and hope he hits the nearby cactus before detonation. You may also notice some carts with red tanks in them, these are Hot Dog carts, believe it or not, kicking one into an enemy nets you the "Fast Food" skillshot, while shooting it causes an explosion that launches enemies into the air for easy "Fireworks" or "Gotcha" skillshots, and if the explosion kills someone, "Sausage Fest" as well. The Gotcha skillshot is specific to the flaregunners, and because there's a few of them standing around there's good chance their firing flares at you, so leash an enemy or two next to you for a free "Friendly Fire" skillshot too. If you get hit by a flare and just start randomly firing, there's a chance at "Blind Fire" as well and for added measure, the advertisement columns are also Shocker chances. After that chaotic skillshot-fest, continue forward and an observation event will direct you to the sign of the nightclub, up to the right is a dropkit though if you need to resupply even after collecting all the dropped guns. *Skillshots: Intoxicated: Kill an enemy while drunk on Nom Juice [General] Go on inside and discover the last collectible, the beer bottles which help you with the "Intoxicated" skillshot, which we learn from the description labels the bottles as "Nom Juice." Go ahead and drink the two you find, despite Ishi's distain, then move forward to an observation of a miniboss and enemies coming towards you, this is a great time for the Screamer's flare, which nets you possibly a few Intoxicated/Fireball kills when you shoot it at the miniboss and sometimes stuns him, kick his helmet off and fire another flare to re-stun him and pull off either kick off or whiplash. Afterwards take up his minigun and raise carnage on the enemies raising havoc on the far side of the stage, all to Disco Inferno! Get a few easy Full- Throttle points then turn outside the door to mow down the rest of the rest of the opposition, aiming up at the red dots to ignite red barrels and killing sniping flaregunners. Afterwards a combat car drives up unloading more bullet targets on the cliff, mow them all down and by now the minigun's probably out of juice, the action done, go ahead back into the nightclub and search the stage, table, counters, seats and floor for a bunch of Nom Juice bottles, some of which you probably shot already and didn't realize. You can collect these through drinking 20 bottles and shooting 20 bottles for achievements but they aren't specifically "hidden" through the game like the other ones are. * Electro Fly Swarm 2/5 Once done raiding Nom, run on out and past the cliff and continue to find three dudes coming at you from an arch with a Hot Dog cart, decide how to get rid of them, I kicked the cart and shot it, but whatever works, then go out and past the ledge ahead of you is another Electro fly swarm. Vault over the rubble ahead and kick down the door to get inside the next building, go over and kick the next door and... it doesn't open all the way... and flares incoming! Oof, you get pushed back but it doesn't really hurt, run in and massacre those freaks. Once inside you'll see a bottle of Nom to the right and a switch to the left. My suggestion: hit the switch and then quickly drink the Nom, the door will open and a bunch of melee jerks will run at you, immediately plant a flare a few feet ahead of you and watch it light up those suckers like napalm, then it's just a matter of spamming the revolver shots for a lot of Afterburner, Intoxicated, Firefighter, Fireball, and maybe even some Fast Draw and Gunslinger! *Skillshots: Bombshell: Kill two or more enemies by exploding a flailbomber [General II] After turning their world up-side down, new enemies will start charging, a couple dozen freak Flailgunners, shoot them a few times to have them blow up though, and if you use the same flare trick (provided you have extras) you can start to rack up some serious "Bombshell" points, plus everything you just got from the melee dudes! Minus the Intoxicated though, as the Nom juice will have run out by now. If you do happen to get hit by a flailgun, don't panic: just run towards the nearest group of flailgunners and have yours detonate to kill all of them and get you Bombshell points, you'll survive if only barely. Run out now and collect the Flailgun, you probably only have a couple shots for it though, but luckily there's an ammo crate in one of the containers to the right, so you should have around 4-5 shots, be careful with them. When you're done, go on and walk through into the next building. *Newsbot 2/3 Inside you'll find a Newsbot, and past him on a table, another bottle of Nom, which you should just shoot since there's no enemies close enough to abuse that for. Continue out and up the stairs for a dropkit, a chance to fill up the flailgun, as well as unock a mess more skillshots, easiest of the flailgun's being "Gang Bang" and "Minefield." *Skillshots: Gang Bang: Kill two or emore enemies with a single flail explosion [Flailgun] Minefield: Kill an enemy by exploding a flail attached to a surface [Flailgun] Sadist: Wrap a flail around an enemy but kill him before it explodes [Flailgun] Meat Slicer: Slice an enemy in half while wrapping the flail around an object [Flailgun] Head Slicer: Decapitate an enemy after wrapping the flail around an object [Flailgun] Homie Missle: Use a flail-wrapped airborne enemy to kill another enemy [Flailgun] Smart Mine: Use a flail-wrapped standning enemy to kill an airborne enemy [Flailgun] Sucker: Kill an enemy by flinging them into a ventilation fan [Secret] Keep going and kick the panel out and find a few enemies to try those new skillshots on. There will be a couple more melee dudes, and a chance at "Sucker," just flail the right dude, use the explosion to push the left one into the vent. *Electro Fly swarm 3/5 Keep going through a bunch of oncoming enemies, mind the flaregunners on the upper-right balcony, and go on as a miniboss appears to the left, just shoot the barrels behind him. After you're done, go down the stairs below. Vault over the column ahead, and up above you should be another electro fly swarm and a dropkit. Keep going and find Trishka's escape pod, as well as a trail of bodies. Follow the trail to more enemies, but... they're firing the other way, kill through and hey! (observation event) There's the source of the transmission, Trishka! Finish everyone off and follow the path chasing Trishka. Fight off an assortment of flares, guns, and flails, then climb up the ladder in the next building. At the top look across a vine to a dude climbing towards you, shoot the vine ahead with a flail for an easy "Head Slicer," then climb yourself across and find yourself in the same situation. At the other side just kick him into a Voodoo Doll, or if you have an extra shot, flail first then kick for an easy "Sadist." *Newsbot 3/3 *Electro Fly Swarm 4/5 Ahead there's another newsbot and a swarm of electro flies, makes things easy by flailing the newsbot, kicking it under the flies, and set it off, then resupply at the dropkit. Keep going and slider under the vine to find more dudes and flailgunners, one tactic is to kick the sausage cart out from the left, flail it, and kick it into the crowd, then finish off any stragglers after the explosion. You'll find a bridge ahead, lower it and fight off the incoming flailgunners, then move forward to an observation event again seeing Trishka compromise the path to her, she's not too keen on people following her evidently. Another observation event will alert you to the way forward. Before that though connect to the nearby dropkit, the Thumper upgrade to the leash is now available and while pricey, makes fighting awesome. Ammo up and leash the orb and cross the bridge. *Skillshots: Flyswatter: Thump an enemy so he smashes into the ceiling or an impaler [General II] Trap Shooting: Use bullets to kill a thumped enemy [General II] Slam Dunk: Smash an airborne enemy into the ground with the Thumper [General II] You'll be greeted by quite a few dudes, no worries for the Thumper! Just leash one of the dudes from up above the stairs, in turn thump him, sending most enemies into the air for several "Flyswatter" points, and fire at the rest for some "Trap Shooting," "Slam Dunk," maybe ready a flare for "Fireworks." Once they're dead, run up the stairs for more enemies and a miniboss down the stairs on the other side, deal with them however you choose and focus on the miniboss, save a thumper for him so you can get "Touch Down." Now once he's dead a few waves of dudes will run at you from the monster mouth entrance, you can either use the minibos's minigun for a bunch of Full-Throttles, the thumper for more mid-air Trap Shooting, maybe even "Slam Dunk," or fire flares or flails at the ground or incoming flailgunners for Gang Bang and Bombshells. Mow through the hordes however you wish and move into the building to move onto chapter 2. * * * Chapter 2 - Worst Family Fun Vacation Ever * * * /*** No one imagines perishing at the hands of a child's toy! Newsbots: 1/1 Electro Fly Swarms: 0/0 As you enter the Mechaton Park, take a listen to the narrator, interpret that anyway you wish, anyway the dropkit here gives you early access to the Boneduster! This will be your shotgun, and that means another batch of skillshots! *Newsbot 1/1 Charge forward, kick down a gate, ahead there will be an observation event revealing one of the animatronic Mechatons evidently broke free, ominous eh? Kick down the newsbot then the next gate ahead, then finally climb over the railing into the scaled down city. *Skillshots: Kill-o-Watt: Kill an enemy by flinging them into the model buildings in the Mechaton Park [Secret] Pump Action: Get an enemy airborne then shotgun blast him into an environmental hazard. [Boneduster] Upon dropping down, a new challenger appears! This is one of the shotgun dudes, you'll learn to hate them, anyway you may have noticed the buildings arcing, back up and kick him when he charges quickly following with a shotgun blast, hopefully netting you a "Kill-o-Watt" and "Pump Action." Topless: Blast away the top half of an enemy [Boneduster] Legless: Blow the legs off an enemy [Boneduster] Splatterpunk: Kill a downed enemy by blasting him against the floor [Boneduster] Torpedo: Kil lan enemy by shooting him while sliding [Boneduster] Piledriver: Get an enemy airborne then smash him into a surface with the shotgun blast [Boneduster] Juggler: Blast an airborne enemy twice then kill him before landing [Boneduster] Slugfest: Kill two or more enemies with one standard shot [Boneduster] Once he's dead run through the city, populated in a narrow path by about two dozen enemies to get "Topless," "Legless," "Splatterpunk," "Torpedo," "Piledriver," "Juggler," and "Slugfest" on, and you can actually get all of these in this very sequence hypothetically if you're actually trying to get all of the skillshots. Once your done with "family fun," there will be a switch Ishi points out on the far end of the city track, pull it and reveal the path down. Just then you hear crashing, and there's a Mechaton! After simulating Godzilla for a moment, he lunges at you! Dodge the swipe, rolling into the service corridor, run down to a barred entryway, leash the box on the far wall to gain entry, and climb the far ladder. At the top, with no sign of Fakezilla, access the dropkit to resupply. There is also a bottle of nom nearby, have a swig and rush forward as enemies jump at you from behind boxes, get luck and you may have an Intoxicated Slugfest! Once they've all had a taste of shotgun, run forward and vault over a rail as Fakezilla returns! Ishi tells you to shoot him as he tries frantically to produce an exit, and moments later he succeeds and you can make you getaway. On the other side of the door run on up the stairs and prepare for a dozen melee freaks! This is an awesome time for the Thumper and the Boneduster to Juggle some jerks. Fight through the mob and make your way down the stairs at the other end. You'll find a grated door to kick down and CRASH! Fakezilla returns AGAIN!As he closes in though Gray notices the idiot controlling the beast running up to remote order Mechaton to smash you, cap him before he gets a chance and you get a new toy! Time for the most fun part of this chapter. You control the Mechaton! Have him smash the giant garage door to the loading dock, fire at the barrels on the way out and have him smash again the far door, following your new pet via the catwalk going up to the left. *Skillshots: Mass Extinction: Crush an enemy with the Mechaton [Secret] Once outside, an assortment of standard gun freaks and minibosses come pouring from the two buildings, middle and right, to come die to the Mechaton! Just keep alternating between houses and mow them all down, a few morons ought to run under Mechaton's legs and get squished giving some "Mass Extinction" points. One note; keep the trigger held down, even if there aren't enemies yet, and rack up as much Full-Throttle points as possible! After both buildings of baddies are leveled, have Mechaton smash the bus to create a little bridge so he can venture to the next mayhem spot, you'll break the Full-Throttle spree but no worries, it will start again in a moment as Ishi breaks a door down so you can get to a better vantage point on the catwalk. Now the carnage continues, aim your beast up at the bridges, it's easiest to aim at the bottom of the second bridge, or the ceiling of the first, this kills dudes on both levels. During the massacre you'll also have to contend with a few gyrocopters, sight in if you're having issues making the beast shoot them. One combat car will mark the end of the wave. Once everything's dead, follow Ishi jumping down to the ground and follow your beast killing dudes flanking you on the left, then on the balconies down the road, remember you can aim at the ceilings below the balconies to kill everything, demolishing more buildings and gyrocopters. An observation event will point you back to area one. Clear out this newfound nuisance enjoying Gray's tribute to Fakezilla, then after a couple more gyrocopters another observation event will point you forward again for more gunners and gyrocopters. Mow down again all opposition before having the great beastie break down the gates of the far end of the clearing. But oh noes! As he carries out this takes an observation event sees him crash and fall down a giant divide in the terrain. One may wish to join Gray in giving final sentiments, one never formed such a bond with a giant monster in the span of 10 minutes... Once emotionally settled, join Ishi near a pope going down into the hole and enter to start Act 3. ************************************************ *** Act III *** ****************** * [ActIIIFT] * *** *** The Dam * * * Chapter 1 - One Sniper Means a Dozen * * * /*** Get military, they're going to be waiting for us. Newsbots: 3/3 Electro Fly swarms: 3/3 Act 3 opens up with Gray reaching the bottom of the pipe, merely start walking. Once you pass a waterfall an observation event alerts you to a hunched figure speeding across the bars ahead. Keep going to find blockage in your path, kick it and the ceiling will collapse! A timer appears, as you start running with 15 seconds on the clock. Quickly follow Ishi as he points a way to salvation. Pull the obstruction and slide to safety! *Electro Fly swarm 1/3 When you land you'll be treated to new surroundings, a beach front leading up to a dam. Soon up ahead another communicae is broadcast by Trishka, revealing her to be up on the dam, giving you your new destination. Once that's past there's a dropkit ahead, then go to the cliff edge to the right of the dropkit and turn left to find a swarm of electro flies to kill. When you're done move on to the left side of the dropkit and follow Ishi to an elevator and pull the lever to send it up. At the top, after seeing the evidence of gang genocide, walk up the stairs and surprise! New enemy! These guys dodge your kicks and avoid your leash, just slide kick the first dude (They can't avoid that, suckas) and use him as the epicenter for mass Flyswatter points. If you're on harder difficulties and couldn't afford ammo, follow the wall to the right from the way you entered to find a crate, then continue out the opposite wall from where you entered to find another enemy. The game slows and prompts you to slide the poor sap, this was just to show you they CAN be slide kicked. Afterwards continue down the plaza past a dozen more enemies in whatever manner you choose and continue down to an observation event right after a sniper takes a shot at you, kill him and move up to where he was shooting you and pick up the rifle. *Skillshots: Hotshot: Kill a dodging enemy by targeting a weak spot like the head or throat [Head Hunter] Accident: Shoot an enemy and have him die from hitting an environmental hazard [Head Hunter] *Newsbot 1/3 Now, crouched behind cover, you get to test the new tool, start firing at enemies once the target on them is red and get used to the feel of firing it and steering the bullet afterwards. Go for the head for a "Hotshot" score and if you run low on ammo there is a crate conveniently to the right, across the cover. Another shot one can go for is firing at the target straight ahead and try to push him back to a hazard for the "Accident" skillshot. When dead, run forward to the right in the back corner of the area for a newsbot. Once done, Ishi will open a garage door and once inside you'll catch another transmission from Trishka as you move through the warehouse, on the ground level a dropkit is available. And across the garage door from the dropkit is a bottle of Nom, drink it and aim out the door at more snipers, maybe getting some lucky Intoxicated Hotshot Headshots. If you're hurting for ammo, or didn't want to pay the dropkit, turn around and get past where the Nom was out the side door of the warehouse for an ammo crate. Now you're clear to press on to the first tower before hearing another shot wiz past, get cover behind a suitcase ad retaliate, taking down several more enemies. *Newsbot 2/3 *Skillshots: Show off: Kill an enemy from 10 meteres without using the scope [Head Hunter] Broken Wings: Kill a thumped enemy with a guided bullet [Head Hunter] Bluff: Kill an enemy who is not actually the chosen target of the bullet [Head Hunter] Nutcracker: Kill an enemy by guiding a bullet into his balls [Head Hunter] Killer News: Kill someone with the explosion of a Newsbot [General] Once you're done Ishi should be finished getting the first part of the bridge down, leash the other side and cross. There's a dropkit to resupply before running headlong into a building housing a dozen more enemies, at this point the Head hunter isn't necessary but this is a good time to try for "Show Off" and "Broken Wings" if you have spare ammo. There's also a newsbot in or around the first building you arrive at, explode that near an enemy for "Killer News." When they're all taken care of continue to the far building and under the rubble inside for the next dropkit. Keep moving outside to find a walkway then a pier, half a dozen enemies included. take them all out. There's a bottle of nom on the right lower walkway of the pier if you want some Intoxicated points, that or just shoot it after you've cleaned up (As I did.) Those low on ammo can also go to the lower left walkway on the pier all the way at the end. *Electro Fly Swarm 2/3 Scavenging done, continue down the shanty bridge to a dozen more enemies in the building ahead. Either during or after the fight there is also some Nom juice on the window sill past the doorway closest to where you arrive. Afterwards follow Ishi to the end of a walkway where exists one last pier with an electro fly swarm at the end, on your way there however there's an extra dude, whatever. Nail him and the flies then go inside the building and access the dropkit to access the charged shot for the Head Hunter, those with big wallets of skillpoints should get 4-5 charges for the skillshots in a moment. At the bottom, go ahead and run down the hallway receiving another broadcast from Trishka, outnumbered and looking Grim, thus Gray and Ishi resolve to hurry and save her. Sprinting down the hallway you come to a giant diner room with a bunch of enemies, either simply mop them up or for those wanting all four charged skillshots for the Head Hunter in one room, follow my little scheme next paragraph. *Electro Fly swarm 3/3 *Skillshots: Premature: CHARGED: Explode the bullet to kill the target before it hits him [Head Hunter] Letter Bomb: CHARGED: Explode two or more enemies with a single bullet Early Retirement: CHARGED: Kill an enemy controlled with the charged bullet before it explodes [Head Hunter] Shrapnel: CHARGED: Explode two or more airborne enemies using a single bullet [Head Hunter] Fly Guy: Kill an enemy by flinging them into a swarm of electro flies [General] Set up a charge and fire at the closest enemy, but hit the trigger just short of hitting him for "Premature," then ready another and fire at the next enemy, drag him to another and blow him up for "Letter Bomb." Ready a charge once more and hit the next one, dragging him behind the support pillar opposite the door you came from into the electro flies for "Fly Guy" and "Early Retirement." Walk out and turn towards what should be the last two enemies, thump them, firing another charge into an enemy, drag him to the second in mid-air and detonate for "Shrapnel." You should now have all 4 Head Hunter charged skillshots! *Newsbot 3/3 Once the carnage is done there is a table to the left of where you came in with Nom juice, shoot it, then go then go to the electro flies on the opposite side of the pillar, opposite side of the room from where you entered. Lastly the final newsbot of the chapter wonders around tables in this room. When this is all done, follow Ishi through the gross kitchen and access corridor to an elevator and send it up to find Trishka. * * * Chapter 2 - A Dam Fine Mess * * * /*** Complain about how I saved ya later! Newsbots: 3/3 Electro Fly swarms: 2/2 Chapter 2 starts with an ambush and for the lazy people you can actually just thump the ground near both sides of the room and you get a mass of Voodoo Doll and Flyswatter points, as well as a few red barrels throughout. This oddly enough though is the best place to get "Gunslinger." if you have the patience to try and get 2 split-second headshots in a row, otherwise thump'n'dump if you have the points, spray'n'pray if you don't. Once you've killed everyone on the upper floor, even a little before, a wall nearby will blow and three more dudes will rush out, clean house and make your exit through the new door, following Ishi down the ramp to a raised bridge. Pull the lever to lower it and start another fight. *Electro Fly Swarm 1/2 *Skillshots: Floater: Kill an enemy by flinging him into the rushing water [Secret] Run across and kill the 3 dudes immediately in front remember to fling at least one dude into the river for the "Floater" skillshot, then the three that come down later, or just thump them all in the first place if you have an extra. Head up the stairs past the bridge now but instead of following Ishi through the door on the upper floor go left and u-turn for Electro flies, then follow him. You'll quickly activate a switch to send an elevator, vault over then kick some junk, then pull another switch to open a door to a room and the next batch of baddies, run out to an observation event, you found Trishka! Go ahead and fight more freaks, then walk past the platform ahead for some Nom to shoot before heading down on said platform. You are now in a room full of freaks and 2 big furnaces, knock enemies in for "Man Toast," otherwise annihilate everyone. When you're done a cutscene places Trishka in your possie, albeit begrudgingly. Follow he up the stairs and through the hallway where she informs you that the guys you fought in the earlier acts are Skulls, and the new gross guys Creeps, ok, we now know what to call them, cool. Keep going, a dropkit on the way, and you'll run up and into a Creep sniper, kill him and start clearing the battlefield below. *Newsbot 1/3 *Newsbot 2/3 *Electro Fly Swarm 2/2 On the patio of the building you're in, opposite of the stairs that lead down to the plaza is a newsbot. After clearing the warzone of foes, continue down to the plaza for more skulls to face, enjoy the dejavu scenery, then more skulls before finding another newsbot in the far side of the plaza and some electro flies in the upper left area at the end of the plaza and finally going down a ramp underground with another dropkit. *Newsbot 3/3 *Skillshots: Grinder: Kill an enemy by flinging them into the Grindwheels at the Hydro Plant [Secret] On the other end of the tunnel you appear on some scaffolding on a cliffside, continue down the two floors of Skulls before leaving on an elevator on the other side, which conveniently has the last newsbot stuck in the corner of it. At the top the elevator opens to the hydro plant area of the dam, and if you knock enemies into the grindwheel you'll get "Grinder." That's really the only notable thing here, just kill everyone, a few flare gunners included, before continueing to find a leash target. After Trishka's done yelling at you run forward through flare and melee dudes, turn and face flailgunners, turn again and mow through shotguns and melee, and finally leash another object to keep going. At the end of this path aim left to a gyrocopter, now since you have the Head Hunter you can easily get Skyjack, just get a headshot on the pilot. Do this quickly though because before long Trishka's chastising starts to ring true, and the plant starts falling apart! You watch an observation event of Trishka leaping to salvation, you have no choice but to follow her lead and JUMP! You land on a convenient floating platform below, but all is not well as Gyrocopters chase you and the hydro plant comes crashing down, retaliate in futility as the chapter comes to a close! ************************************************ *** Act IV *** ****************** * [ActIVFT] * *** *** Forbidden Zone * * * Chapter 1 - The Only Way Through * * * /*** You want to go through this building, or maybe demolish it? Newsbots: 2/2 Electro Fly swarms: 1/1 *Skillshots: Nominated: Kill an enemy with a Nom parasite on their head [General] Leak: Put a Nom Parasite on an enemy's head then get a headshot [General] The team washes up in a business district, run up the stairs and out onto the street above. Trishka wants the party to be subtle, keeping that in mind go over and kick the panel ahead to create a bridge... So much for that, run forward and vault over the rubble to find Creeps! The game at this point prompts you to kick what are known as Nom parasites, get them on heads of enemies for Nom-related skillshots, a couple you could easily get now is "Nominated" and "Leak." *Newsbot 1/2 Rid yourself of the Creeps and crawl in the hole Ishi opens up, one inside look to the left and there will be a newsbot, the face forward again and then leash the turbine up to the left and watch more domino action unfold. Exit through the new tunnel and rush out to an observation event of a creep getting eaten by a plant, now you know what the flytrap references are in the skillshot database. *Electro Fly swarm 1/1 Before killing it, turn left and kill the electro flies then kill the flytrap, pull out the bus doors on the bus to the left, then kick out the opposite doors. Kill a group of Creep snipers present, and once defeated watch a cutscene. With that done, run on down the ramp and come upon a road block, where Trishka challenges you with figuring out how to advance in 15 seconds. This isn't required, but it's cool. try to just figure it out, if you don't an observation event will point you to what you should have done. If you just want the answer; turn around and shoot the globe back up the street. *Newsbot 2/2 After the way is opened turn left for a dropkit and a newsbot in the tent behind it. Now follow Ishi and Trish through the building, vault through the window and fight a dozen Skulls. There's also plenty of Cacti and metal skewers for impalement, good for Sadist or "Accident." Then go up the stairs to a courtyard where you find (observation event) a miniboss, this one sporting a bouncer weapon. You'll have to hit his ammunition backpack to make him vulnerable either by leashing the explosive behind him and pulling it into him or failing that, just use the thumper to put him on the ground for an easy backpack removal and another chance at a miniboss-specific skillshot. Defeat him and pick up his Bouncer gun and head inside. * * * Chapter 2 - Maneaters Prefer Tight Spots * * * /*** Quit cheering me up and shoot! Newsbots: 3/3 Electro Fly swarms: 4/4 *Skillshots: Direct Hit: Kill an enemy with a direct hit from the cannonball [Bouncer] Boom: Kill two or more enemies with one cannonball [Bouncer] Bully: Detonate a cannonball to kill an enemy just after knocking then over with it [Bouncer] Trickshot: Kill an enemy with a cannonball bounced off a wall or obstacle [Bouncer] Carpet Bombing: Bounce a cannonball at least two times before killing an enemy with it [Bouncer] Antidote: Kill an enemy who is infected by the puffball gas [General] Toxic Love: Kill an enemy while infected by puffball gas [General] Once inside an observation event will show you puffballs, which have a gas that confuses enemies, afterwards pull the switch and head upstairs for a room with a dropkit and some Nom juice to the left of the stairs ahead. Go up these stairs and find some SKulls and a puffball. Shoot the puffball and start a skilling spree with the Bouncer for possible "Direct Hit," "Boom," "Bully," "Trickshot," "Carpet Bombing," "Antidote," "Intoxicated," and "Toxic Love" skillshots. *Electro Fly swarm 1/4 Once done, Ishi will invade the ventilation system and open the door ahead, run through and soon Ishi will call for help. Sprint up to Ishi to find him fighting... what the hell is that? An observation event shows Ishi devoured and taken away, Gray immediately resolves to save him ASAP. Before long he gets a signal on Ishi, follow Trish under some growth to continue to a giant plaza with, surprise, Skulls! Kick the nearby hot dog cart down the stairs and start decimating everyone. When there's a clearing in the action, there's a swarm of electro flies to the right just after coming outside and a bottle of Nom to the left, all at the top level of the plaza. *Skillshots: Meat Fountain: Kill two or more airborne enemies with one cannonball [Bouncer] Lucky Shot: Kill an enemy with a cannonball that traveled over 100 meters without bouncing [Bouncer] Lucky Shot and Meat Fountain are now viable since you're outside, and thus the whole repertoire of the Bouncer's skillshots is now open for your own mayhem. Down the flight of stairs to the right is also an ammo crate, helpful for those using a Bouncer right now, and more baddies to the left. Keep going down the plaza past said baddies for more baddies, murder everything that moves before moving on. *Electro Fly swarm 2/4 Then you finally get to the bottom, look to the right for a puffball, shoot it to confuse the incoming flailgunners, then fire a Bouncer into the lot for easy Antidote Boom Bombshell and maybe even Money Shot if you nail the detonation. When they're dead access the dropkit you see to the right, go to the left side of the clearing for electro flies in the trees, then finally exit through the path the flailgunners appeared from. *Skillshots: Feeder: Feed an enemy to a flytrap Bad Digestion: Cause a Flytrap to swallow something explosive. Crawl/slide under some vines and move on to fight a Skull! Oh wait, the plant at him, make sure you leash it so that doesn't happen to you and move out to the courtyard for a fight with Skulls with shotgunners. One may notice a bunch of Flytraps about, this is the only act to get "Feeder," and "Bad Digestion." *Newsbot 1/3 When everyone is either paste or eaten, go through the left side of the courtyard for a newsbot and then to the right to progress. Take care of the flytrap ahead and find yourself in an alley of cacti and Skulls, easy way is a Bouncer explosion or a Thumper blast to skewer everyone either on lift off or landing, then get the stragglers. Keep going to another flytrap and enemy, afterwards prepare for an achievement, quickly get out the Head Hunter from the dropkit and watch for a helicopter off the far side of the plaza you're in, if you manage to shoot the gunner you'll get the Chop-Choppa achievement. Soon afterwards a path will be blown open. *Newsbot 2/3 Destroy the newsbot that should be in the plaza you're in them move to where the chopper moved to and fight everyone off as the Chopper gets pulled down by the plants and an observation event shows you a miniboss emerging to fight. Kill him and take up the minigun and mow down invading melees to the right. *Newsbot 3/3 *Electro Fly swarm 3/4 *Skillshots: Fertilizer: Explode two or more thumped enemies using an environmental explosive [General II] Now go through the foliage to another plaza ramping upward, fight up the first set of stairs, turn to the left to see a newsbot on it's side, then look up the second, easy way is to thump the enemy and shoot the explosive for easy "Fertilizer" points, this will also take care of the electro flies in the vicinity. *Electro Fly swarm 4/4 Up ahead there will be more enemies and two flytraps up in the trees to take care of before moving into the giant building. On your way through watch out for several flytraps, clear them all out and keep walking. Right after the flytraps Trish goes left in the hallway ahead, turn right first though for electro flies then follow Trish. at the dropkit head I suggest a Screamer/Flailgun setup for the task ahead, give the Screamer a few charge shots if you can. In the center of the... Atrium, thanks Gray, you'll find the giant Hyper- Mutated Flytrap. Fight it by spraying it with bullets until it's health is depleted, then take out the giant red membranes, you may have to deplete its health two or three times to get all 5. Once you've done this, it's start round 2, except now you have to weaken him and take out 5 clusters of tentacles and the beast is sending out damaging spores at you. By now ammo may be low, keep in mind you can perpetually slide in here due to the mud so just slide around the edges of the room and collect ammo crates if you're low. Also the Screamer will do decent damage to him, better than the Carbine, and both Screamer charges and flailgun shots will take out membranes and tentacle clusters in one shot. *Skillshots: Weed Killer: Defeat the Hyper-Mutated flytrap [Secret] If you get caught by the flytrap, spam the kick button to free yourself and once you've gotten rid of all membranes and tentacles drop its health bar one more time to finish it off an get "Weed Killer." * * * Chapter 3 - Itchin' to Crumble * * * /*** Woulda made Darwin proud Newsbots: 2/2 Electro Fly swarms: 1/1 *Electro Fly swarm 1/1 The new chapter sees your pal Ishi returned and the adventure continued. Follow Trish and Ishi across a pipe and across running water. You'll find a dropkit ahead to resupply and change guns as well as electro flies just past the dropkit to the right. *Skillshots: Kick-of-Doom: CHARGED: Kill an enemy by kicking a cannonball Sledgehammer: CHARGED: Kill three or more enemies with one charged cannonbal Note that this dropkit now has the Bouncer's charge ready to purchase, and will allow you to do Kick-of-Doom and Sledgehammer, do-able just about anywhere with a bunch of dudes really. *Skillshots: Ding Dong: Kill an enemy by crushing him with debris from the collapsed building [Secret] *Newsbot 1/2 Now run through the building, watch the wires, observe (event) a Skull car trying some off-roading, through a bedroom with a view, then a spot that tells you to slide, but before that, squeeze your way through the rubble to the open door you can see up ahead and a newsbot it inside, waiting to be put out of its boredome, then slide down. At the bottom there is some Nom, just shoot it and run forward for more enemies as well as a special green container that reloads all your ammo! If you look ahead to the vault hurdle you have to go across you'll see a leash-target door, put an enemy under that and leash it to kill him and get "Ding Dong." *Skillshots: Tenderizer: Kill an enemy by crushing them with the elevator in the collapsed building [Secret] Vault over the rubble ahead and go "outside" to a bunch of skulls, and a bunch of skewers. Past them is a turretgunner, kill him and you can either use that to kill all the enemies coming across the elevator, or you can take Trish's suggestion and call down the elevator for mass "Tenderizer" points. *Newsbot 2/2 Travel up the elevator shaft now and march into the next battlefield, I mean fall into the next hallway. Destroy the newsbot and forge onward through a couple dozen skulls, then crawl in the nearby hole up to a room with more skulls and then one last room with skulls running around giant windows to shove them down, and finally a dropkit. Run across the window panes as they crack beneath you and straight, err, I mean around a hallway in the collapsing building and kill a couple more enemies. Find some Nom juice in the bathroom, kill a bunch of skulls in a giant room, kill a bunch in ANOTHER giant room, then defeat a miniboss at the end. Keep going and at this point the building starts giving way, and you need to get out, sprint through the collapsing building killing the 2 skulls on the way for an achievement that updates at the elevator ahead and sent said elevator up. Ishi will tell you to shoot some tanks, follow the prompt on the screen for some points and blast your way out of the chapter. ************************************************ *** Act V *** ****************** * [ActVFT] * *** *** Burnout Paradise * * * Chapter 1 - Crash Resistant * * * /*** Oh awesome. Super Duper. Color me Jubilant! Newsbots: 2/2 Electro Fly swarms: 1/1 *Newsbot 1/2 Once you awaken you'll find yourself in a large room, destroy a newsbot and head up the elevator leading outside. Once outside get ready to party! You'll hear a helicopter on the far side of the bridge, make your way over through a bunch of Skulls and a Bouncer boss, then up to the monorail. Trish will start getting it working, some Gyrocopters will be inbound, keep in mind that this is the last chance for Skyjack if you haven't got it already, so hook up at the dropkit for a Head Hunter if you still need it and destroy the incoming gyrocopters, and remember to hit the pilot, not the gyrocopter! At this time aim down the far side stairs and some flailgunners with others will start rushing you. Shoot a puffball down there and start racking up Bombshells and Antidotes. *Newsbot 2/2 *Electro Fly swarm 1/1 When you're done more enemies and another Bouncer boss will appear from where you arrived, kill all of them and now you're ready to ride the monorail, but first! Go to the far side of the monorail platform and behind a vine wall will be a newsbot, and to the left of that in the distance some electro flies, do some sharp shooting then proceed into the monorail. Trish gives some ominous foreshadowing about new enemies and before long an observation event has you seeing a Burnout of which she just talked about taking down a chopper. Then another observation event sees them taking the monorail down, with you in it. * * * Chapter 2 - How Do We Solve That? * * * /*** Got it Gray? Go for the light bulbs! Newsbots: 1/1 Electro Fly swarms: 1/1 *Skillshots: Assplosion: Kill a burnout by shooting his butt growth. [General II] Steady Hand: Kill a Burnout with bullets within a moment of getting him in your sights [Secret] When you regain control of the situation you'll be in a clearing with a bunch of cacti, red barrels, and Burnouts, fight to survive, and even try getting Burnout-Specific Skillshots like "Assplosion" and "Steady Hand." *Newsbot 1/1 *Electro Fly swarm 1/1 At the end of the Burnouts from over the fence, meet Burnouts from behind the garage door. Once inside, veer right and kick the panel out of the way to find electro flies. Afterwards there's also a newsbot in the room to destroy, then open the door Trish and Ishi migrated to. Bah, dumb trash tech, slide under the door when it's up and prepare to fight a couple Burnouts and let the others in. One may notice a Nom Bottle in the center of the room, those of you with a Bouncer charge and Thumper may wish to save that for a moment from now for massive skillpoints and an achievement. Keep killing Burnouts until Ishi warns of more coming, now ready the charged Bouncer shot and drink the Nom, fire the shot at the floor near you and afterwards kick the ball and thump the ground while following it, this will kill a crapload of Burnouts, with Intoxicated Voodoo Doll Trap Shooting Flyswatter Kick of Doom and Sledgehammer skillshots in a chorus of destruction, getting you the Master of Disaster achievement for getting over 2,000 skillpoints at once. *Skillshots: Chain Reaction: CHARGED: Slice two or more enemies in half using a flail Charge Shot [Flailgun] French Revolution: CHARGED: Decapitate two or more enemies with a flail Charge Shot [Flailgun] Once done, a door will blow open, run outside past one of the few areas where enemies continuously spawn and access a dropkit nearby where the flail's charged shot is now available, and with all the Burnouts it's an awesome chance for "Chain Reaction" and "French Revolution." Fight your way ahead as a chopper comes and crashes ahead of you, enjoy kicking some Burnouts into the rotors for Sucker points. *Skillshots: Minced Meat: Defeat the first Hyper-Mutated Burnout [Secret] Pretty soon a Hyper Mutated Burnout will come and challenge you, use bullets and blasts to get him on his knees and kick him back into the rotors for "Minced Meat." Once he's done for, head down the stairs to a dropkit and ride the elevator to the next chapter. * * * Chapter 3 - I See We're All a Bit Upset * * * /*** Hey Trishka! One of your boyfriends at the door! Newsbots: 2/2 Electro Fly Swarms: 0/0 As the elevator moves it gets jammed, kick out the doors and start climbing across the vine and ahead we see an observation event showing us the building Sarrano is occupying. Keep moving to a stairwell with (observation event) Creeps! Defeat them and the ones in the room below. A cutscene later sees Trish fall through a floor and Ishi leaving your company, Gray drops down to help her back up before letting slip that Sarrano gave the order that killed her old man Novak, remember that girl in the prologue? Anyway now it's just you and Trish, run down the hall and to another stairwell and climb across the pipe and, oh boy. You're sent crashing to the bottom of the stairwell and Trish follows, only a bit more gracefully. Follow her into the service corridor, crouch under some pipes and keep going past a single Burnout. Further down the hallway you come into a giant room with a toxic vat in the middle, then an observation event puts a Hyper Mutated burnout behind you, prepare to fight! Or no, pipes knock him into the vat, so much for him. *Newsbot 1/2 Leash the fan to move on through a hole and outside to a lot of ammo and a bottle of Nom to drink, then stumble out to meet some melee friends for a drunk murder. During this drunken tripping over yourself, you may want to check and see if you already took out the newsbot in the room in the crossfire. *Skillshots: Heads Up: Put a Nom parasite on an enemy's head then take their head off [General] Scarecrow: Put a Nom parasite on an enemy's head then impale them [General] Halloween: Put a Nom parasite on an enemy's head then eletricute them [Secret] Once reoriented, move outside to a cacti battlefield with Nom Parasites, and with the charged flail as well this is a great time to get "Heads Up" and "Scarecrow." One Skillpoint you should definitely keep in mind is "Halloween," which is put a Nom parasite and electricute them, and this is one of the only spots with both parts, Nom someone and knock them into the advertisement columns! Clear the opposition and find a dropkit ahead to unlock the Bone Duster's charged shot! *Skillshots Burn: CHARGED: Vaporize two or more enemies with a single Charge Shot [Bone Duster] Acid Rain: CHARGED: Vaporize two or more enemies in mid-air [Bone Duster] Move ahead and an observation event pits you against a Bouncer boss and friends, thump him, charged shotgun 2 enemies in the air, go behind the boss and charged shotgun 2 shotgunners, then finally finish off Bouncer dude and that will take care of "Burn" and "Acid Rain." *Newsbot 2/2 Walk now through the building ahead, newsbot included, then go out to an observation event seeing buildings crash down on the other side as well as fight off some Burnouts, then leash a bus to cross to the other end of the streets. An observation event on the other side destroys more of the street, forge onward for more Burnouts, plentiful Enviro-Mentals available through the burning cars. Once you kill all Burnouts there's another observation event showing carnage, vault over the rubble and continue decimating Burnouts. At the end of all this kick the car to make your way to the end of the road and meet back up with the friend you made in Act 1! Gray and Trish barely make it into an elevator for safety, odd since I wouldn't think that would be much of an obstacle for a beast of that size. Anyway, at the top you end up gunner for a Skull Chopper, open up salvos at the red barrels you see then the 2 generators and 2 turbines to Enviro-Mental the crap out of everyone. Two gyrocopters should appear, nail them and an observation event will occur where the Hekaton smacks the chopper, once oriented again towards the building start aiming at all the red barrels and 2 satellite dishes on the right. *Note: There is a "Red Barrels" achievement for exploding all the red barrels on the roof, keep in mind that the only real "Hidden one" is to the right soon after you take off, as the chopper turns right. This one is pretty tough to do, there's no real way to see the barrels really well. One tip will be to shoot the turbine-looking generators, the solar panels, and the hanging electrical blue machinery whenever you don't see barrels because odds are, the destruction from them will set them off, hopefully giving you a lot of room for error. Now you'll be flying around the back of the Hekaton, remember when you hit it with the train cart? Nail the spot for a "Dino-sore" skillshot. You'll then do another pass on the building and in an observation event see Sarrano's escape pod tumble down to the lower roofs, destroy the red barrels near it and the one on the bridge below, then take another "Dino-sore" shot. Gyrocopters will now appear but not do much, kill them if you can but watch out for a falling Globe you must shoot to avoid damage. The chopper makes one more pass for Dino-sore then the scene ends and a cutscene begins. *Note: For those going after the Red Barrels Achievement, you may want to skip the observation event where the escape pod tumbles, so that you can shoot machinery, and also this will be the point where you can still pause and restart checkpoint to try again if you didn't succeed the first time, the end of the on-rails section is when you make a pass by the escape pod after the final "Dino-sore" attempt, and it ends once you hover over the far corner of the building, back near where you started. ************************************************ *** Act VI *** ****************** * [ActVIFT] * *** *** To The Ulysses * * * Chapter 1 - Daddy'll Get You Out * * * /*** Right now I'm torn between gettin' of this rock and stompin' your brains out.

He shoves Trish off the building, unfortunately you need this guy to survive so you're forced to tag along, run down the hallway smashing the newsbot along the way. *Skillshots: Outburst: Kill an enemy by flinging them into the electrical storm [Secret] Turn and you'll see a storm outside, to the right there's also an elevator with some Nom, you obviously can't reach it to drink it so just shoot it and keep going to a dropkit ahead. Keep moving through a hallway of baddies, kick at least one out into the storm for "Outburst." *Skillshots: Shishkebab: Impale two or more enemies with a single drill [Penetrator] Wingmen: Impale two or more airborne enemies with a single drill [Penetrator] Breakdance: Drill an enemy into the ground [Penetrator] Fan-Tastic: Drill an enemy into the ceiling [Penetrator] Mile High Club: Send an enemy into the sky [Penetrator] Root Canal: Insert a drill into an enemy's head [Penetrator] Twisted: Fire a drill into an enemy but have him die through other means [Penetrator] Keep going for a room with baddies and a miniboss, then proceed to the giant office room, clear it of enemies and a new miniboss will appear. You've got to get rid of the pack on his belly to make him vulnerable, then he's just like the rest, kill him and take the final gun, the Penetrator. For extra ammo for this gun, check cubicles in the back right area of the room. Now move to the next room and try out the weaponry, you'll have plenty of chances for "Shishkebab," "Fan-tastic," "Root Canal," "Wingmen," and "Breakdancer." Up ahead will be another dropkit to resupply the Penetrator, slide down the pillar ahead and a bottle of Nom is on the table ahead to the right, then finally more targets to skewer with a bouncer Boss at the end. Walk forward to an observation event telling you a wave of flailgunners are coming, immediately walk to the right past the wall and aim your gun parallel with the wall, this should be a perfect lined up shot for the Penetrator to deliver pain to all of the flailgunners and massive skillpoint gain. *Newsbot 2/2 Keep going through the halls, across the walkway, and down the stairs to find a newsbot on the bottom level, as well as a bottle of Nom on the table to the left. Follow Sarrano to a dropkit and kick the doors behind it. *Skillshots: Air Strike: Impale a thumped enemy into a standing enemy [Penetrator] Inside, a bunch more enemies, this is the room to try for Wingmen and maybe "Air Strike." Open the elevator when everyone's dead to find a Bouncer and Penetrator bosses inside! Kill them and proceed down the elevator. On the far end of the garage below. Leash the service elevator and ride it down to chapter 2. * * * Chapter 2 - Bad Trouble a Knockin' * * * /*** You're trying to hard general. Just relax, let the overcompensating come natural like. Newsbots: 1/1 Electro Fly swarms: 1/1 As we descend, we find out from the General that all the convicts worked down there, wonderful. At the bottom kick out the doors and pull the switch to go out to the platform, and it falls, no worries though, just kick the gate down there and WAAAAH. Blah, nice sleight of hand there, I especially loved the ammo crate carrot, nice touch, SPRINT FOR YOUR LIFE! Prepare for a welcoming party at the other end, Burnouts. There are a few red barrels so this is an apt Fertilizer spot if you have thumpers. Once you've disposed of them all go through the door to an observation event that alerts you to a crawling creature. Ignoring him for now, go forward and kick down the door and proceed through an observation event of a Burnout jumping you, kick him to a Voodoo Doll and turn to your right and see a bunch more coming. Now, you can do the obvious and Voodoo Doll kick them all, or, if you have the Penetrator still, back up into the bottleneck just before the last observation event and wait for some serious Shishkebab point, and a second chance at that Master of Disaster Achievement. Clear out the stragglers and move forward to another clearing with obvious weapon, the barrels, or major skillpoint fountain by staying back and bottlenecking them through the rocks for a few more good Shishkebab blasts. Once they've all been maimed follow the General out the door. *Newsbot 1/1 While running ahead leash the newsbot above to crush it on the railing then run ahead and pull the switch... oh hey Sarrano got knocked down, aw but he survived, well, I guess it's time to save him, go forward and leash the platform for a ride. *Electro Fly swarm 1/1 One deep and compelling conveyor cutscene later turn around and aim to the right of the conveyor for a swarm of electro flies then press forward, knocking down the gate, vaulting over the ledges, and killing the Burnouts at the next dropkit... never mind, Creeps came in and took care of that, but now you have to take care of the Creeps. An observation event shows you where they are, then another shows you an available Head Hunter with which to shoot them. Take out the first group and more will appear to the right. Take them out and there'll be more behind you. When all this is done get the General and continue. Run forward now and just before the platform Ishi and Sarrano get on there's a Nom bottle to shoot up on the rack to the left, afterwards go and pull the level and lower the platform. There's another bottle up to the left as well, right after exiting the platform at the bottom. Pull the lever and open the next door, but it opens only begrudgingly so crawl under. Run ahead to a bridge as the nearest segment falls too low to continue, leash each segment down to you instead. The last one falls through into the sludge below, now climb the support across and watch a Burnout get chased by the creatures you noticed earlier. A Moment later one rears up to jump at you, quickly shoot it when the game prompts and get to safety on the other side of the support. Continue your journey to a giant platform with a minigun in front. Take it and quickly go to the platform and switch weapons to drop it for later use and pull the switch nearby to start the platform. You see in an observation event one of the little crawlers go up and ram into the cogs! Hurry and pick up the minigun and start picking off as many as you can, and try to control the spray as much as possible, it could be the difference between life and death if you have to stop firing to discharge the minigun! At the top another observation event sees more crawlers, sprint for the door to salvation! Once safe shoot a bottle of Nom on the far side of the room under pipes then follow Sarrano, kick a few doors, and slide down the cable outside to the Ulysses. * * * Chapter 3 - Ponderin' Them Bodies * * * /*** Need papa to give ya a hug, tellin' ya yer doin' a good job?

On the other side a lot of Burnouts will ambush you, pretty easy with the charged Penetrator if you don't need other skillshots. Walk forward and the path will collapse ahead of you, forcing you to go around, turn left up ahead if you really want that ammo crate you saw, otherwise just keep moving. Ahead past the dropkit a dresser will fall, blocking a door jam, kick it to Pancake a couple Burnouts then deal with a few more in the room. You then have to walk forward to a dead end, where Ishi will point out a leash target used to continue a few steps back. *Skillshots: Stinger: CHARGED: Suspend a drilled enemy mid-air, then kick him into another enemy [Penetrator] Proceed through hallways of Burnouts, a good place for "Stinger," by the way, to a metal door marking the hull of the Ulysses. head inside and the General will grant everyone access to the next room. Proceed to pull the lever for the next door, but it's bugged, leash the object on the other side to keep it propped open then continue as Sarrano opens up a shaft. On the other side you'll be jumped by a couple more Burnouts to deal with before Continuing down the ramp. Where the hall ends there's a dropkit to the left, and the way forward to the right. Ishi then informs you that he detects flammable vapors in the next room and guns are off limits, though ramming enemies with the charged Penetrator still works oddly enough. Proceed inside to find Burnouts, ram them with the charged penetrator or just kick them into the fans for Sucker points if you don't have a charge. *Skillshots: Forced: Kill an enemy by flinging them into an electromagnetic pulse field Leaving that room you come into the generator column, leash the column to bring down the fields so you can vault over the machinery. Leash as needed to continue, watching Burnouts get fried up ahead, just the game trying to inspire you. Jump over the next hurdle and more Burnouts will come, fling them into the fields for "Forced." *Skillshots: Grilled Meat: Defeat the second Hyper-Mutated Burnout Just before the next ramp go forward and vault over a beam for a bottle of Nom to shoot. Press on through the fields now, vaulting through a window at the top. The General will get the next door open, leading the way to a Hyper Mutated Burnout (Observation event), knock him into the wires and leash the target above for "Grilled Meat." Afterwards move to the next room for more Burnouts, then finally Sarrano says you've reached your destination. Move inside as Sarrano tells you to enter the deactivation code, which consists of pressing the action button thrice. But what ho, it was a ruse, that ravenous rile Sarrano just had you arm the bomb! Time to get you, leash the panel up to the left and climb up into the duct. On the other side leash a bridge down and it... crumbles, wait a door opened! It leads... nowhere, but Ishi finds another vent through! Get to the end and you're... back at the bomb. All hope seems lost, but then, there's Trishka! Following the young symbol of salvation, you can now leave the Ulysses. ************************************************ *** Act VII *** ****************** * [ActVIIFT] * *** *** Departure * * * Chapter 1 - That Thing's Leaving Without Us * * * /*** Betcha the morons who made it threw around the term foolproof quite a bit. Newsbots: 2/2 Electro Fly swarms: 2/2 Time to escape from the ship, rush forward to daylight, turning and kicking two fallen columns before climbing up the opposite side of the wall/bridge. Head down the ramp to a dropkit then take the elevator down. At the bottom you find Skulls! Air Strike should now be considered since you have the perk of the Penetrator's charge shot. *Newsbot 1/2 *Electro Fly swarm 1/2 *Skillshot: Stomach Pump: Kill a miniboss by firing a charged drill into his stomach then kicking it [General II] Clean out the Skulls and bash out the grate up the stairs to find Creeps and Skulls duking it out, there's a Nom bottle in a window near the skulls too, otherwise just clean house. Move through the far building for a dropkit, a newstbot, and then electro flies outside. Kill more skulls and vault over some rubble then run up stairs for more skulls and a Bouncer boss, a chance for "Stomach Pump" reveals itself! Eliminate all Skulls then the Creeps down the stairs then you'll pass by a dropkit. Moments later you find another miniboss and Skulls! Dispose of them and then (Observation event), more Creeps! After this head upstairs to what looks like a mall's food court, Trish and Ishi go below and you stay above. An observation event points you towards your first set of foes and your path forward. *Newsbot 2/2 A dropkit is here to assist as you fend off a wave of skulls outside two kitchens on the left, the first has a bottle of Nom and the second a newsbot. Clear out all foes and go across the bridge to more baddies and a dropkit, as well as a Penetrator miniboss straight afterwards. Help out the folks below with two Bouncer bosses, then move out the garage door to more skulls with flailgunners bringing up the rear, a single drill from left skull into shotgunner into flailgunner is a very effective approach when the cards line up right. When all cleaned up, head back down to your peeps to hang out around a dropkit. Now up ahead is probably the hardest room in the game, it's cramped, 4 miniboss es appear alongside hordes of melees and flaregunners, and will probably have those on Very Hard respawning a few times. Definitely ready a few thumpers and charged penetrators. Drop down into the room and have an observation event point you to the first miniboss, center a thump on him so he's and the rest of the room is stunned, if not dead. Then execute a Stomach Pump on the miniboss and the next boss, a Bouncer, appears upstairs. Thump the middle of the room again for a mass stun then go up and shoot off the bouncer's backpack and Stomach Pump him as well. At this point you're hallway done as a Penetrator boss appears below. Send one last thump down and quickly take out his pack and Stomach Pump him, getting one last Stomach Pump maneuver ready for the last minigun boss then just leave the Penetrator charged and Drilldo all the trash until the way forward opens. If you don't have these resources at this time you can also use behind the stairs and the upstairs closet as rest spots as you methodically take out all of the bosses. Crisis averted, proceed out through luggage processing and the chute on the other end. At the end of the chute there is a swarm of electro flies to the left before continuing right across the bridge as an observation event produces the dropship overhead, it's time to move! Rush forward kicking the first two enemies into Voodoo Dolls, then mow down all the others in your way. If you're spending more than 15 second on a group of enemies forget it and sprint slide kicking anyone in your way! As you get close to the dropship Ga-doom! An explosion from the nearby combat car knocks you down, Trish yells at you to get up. At this point sprint your boots off towards the loading ramp and leash it back down before the timer counts down! * * * Chapter 2 - I Don't Hold You Accountable * * * /*** Ain't that kind of party, stink finger! Newsbots: 1/1 Electro Fly swarms: 0/0 *Skillshots: Discharged: Use a charged PMC to kill a Heavy Echo whilst he's charging his [General II] Ejaculated: Send a Heavy Trooper out the Cargo bays of the dropship [Secret] Once on board Trish will open the door and, new enemy! Meet Final Echo, they take a lot of abuse and use the same charged Carbine shots you do. Fight through the room of troopers and proceeding hallway, and at the end pull a lever to send a roomful of troopers across the hall out the cargo hold for "Ejaculated." When facing these guys, also keep in mind their specific skillshot; "Discharged." Move on out the door and Trish will try opening the door, and when that fails have you boost her to a vent where she leaves to find an alternate way through, though Ishi gets you past the door. Go down the hall and send down the elevator, at the bottom an observation event tabs Trish's location for you. Kill the sap she kicked to you and go to the next room, the switch on the right sends another room full of troopers off the ship for more Ejaculated skillpoints. Once the room is cleared and Sarrano is mocking you, level either your Penetrator or charged Carbine shot at the door and fire upon it opening to kill the invading troopers, kill anyone you miss afterwards obviously. Take up the now ownerless minigun and rampage through the hallway to the next room, careful of the two other miniguns up to the right. When they're dead, head up to the door then use those 2 miniguns to help stave off a bunch of troopers while Ishi gets the door. I found the Thumper was really effective here, nets you a ton of Flyswatter and then Trap Shooting points. When done, confront Sarrano in a cutscene, after some mind games the jerk takes control of Ishi and uses him to choke you, spam the kick button to resist! Before long he breaks free and tussles with the General. You see your gun, and start crawling, left, right, left, right, left, right, then hit the action button and try to grab it, but it's knocked away by Sarrano. Now he decides to toss you like a ragdoll, you eventually land next to a gun as he launches a container at you, kick it away! Pick up your gun and fire! But he hides behind an object, but Gray also sees a flammable box, leash it to the General and shoot to ignite! As he stumbles out of his cover leash the gluttonous swine and kick him into the skewers and leave him to his fate. Gray moves to help Trish, but the General isn't dead, and they end up ejected from the ship. At the bottom you're swarmed by troopers, face them all off until an observation event of one breaking a way out for you. Take this path out and kick out the floors to an observation event emphasizing that you're at the Ulysses again. *Newsbot 1/1 Crawl over and under the rubble before kicking out a door, the other side with an observation event of troopers rushing to the same survival goal as you are, chase them up the ramp, aiming at a far away newsbot to Killer News a trooper or two. Then see (observation event) the front of the Ulysses collapsing, hurry up the ramp capping every trooper on the way. At the top of the ramps there's a dropkit, don't be stingy now this is the last one! Stock up on whatever you want, for you're reaching the finale! Barge onward, there's a timer! Thump everyone, blast everything, and sprint through the ship to that last escape pod! Enter and, hey! You're not invited you Final Echo cretin! Kick out the intruder and brace for lift off! Congratulations, you've completed the Campaign! ******************************************************************************* ************************************************* *** *** Skillshots ************* [SkillshotsFT] *** *** /*** Example ***\ _______________________________________________________________________________ Skillshot: Description. Chapter: Which chapter it is in if applicable. Tips: How to get the skillshot. /*** General ***\ _______________________________________________________________________________ Graffiti: Kill anaenemy by kicking him against a surface. Tips: Pretty self-explanatory, just kick an enemy against a surface or object, this may take a few tries though due to the fact that it isn't always 100%. _______________________________________________________________________________ Shocker: Kill an enemy by flinging them into a an elextrical source. Tips: Any time you see dangling electrical cords or circular advertisement columns you can kick enemies into them for the skillshot. Note that other electricity based skillshots like Outburst will override this skillshot. _______________________________________________________________________________ Pricked: Kill an enemy by flinging them into a cactus. Tips: Also pretty self-explanatory, cause an enemy to fly into a cactus. _______________________________________________________________________________ Voodoo Doll: Kill an enemy by flinging them into a sharp metal object. Tips: Also pretty self-explanatory, cause an enemy to fly into a sharp metal object. _______________________________________________________________________________ Fly Guy: Kill an enemy by flinging them into a swarm of electro flies. Tips: Most easily done at the start of Act III - Chapter 1, get a charged Head Hunter shot then go to the first room after going down the elevator, a diner, and fire a shot at an enemy, dragging them to a swarm of electro flies behind a pillar on the exact opposite side of the room from the door from where you entered. _______________________________________________________________________________ Afterburner: Kill an enemy who is on fire. Tips: While there are a few sources of fire, the easiest way is to just fire a charged Screamer shot and kill anyone who was caught in the blast. _______________________________________________________________________________ Enviro-Mental: Kill one or more enemies using an environmental explosive. Tips: Really simple, just kill someone with an explosive red barrel or spherical trash can. You'd actually be pretty hard-pressed to not even accidentally get this throughout any point of the game. _______________________________________________________________________________ Feeder: Feed an enemy to a flytrap. Chapter: Act IV - Chapter 2 Tips: The only point in the game with flytraps is Act IV - Chapter 2, just feed an enemy to them by kicking or leashing them to the flytrap's front. _______________________________________________________________________________ Bad Digestion: Cause a Flytrap to swallow something explosive. Chapter: Act IV - Chapter 2 Tips: The only point in the game with flytraps is Act IV - Chapter 2, kick a trash can into the flytrap's front, or even easier, just fire a Bouncer shot in front of them if you have one on hand. _______________________________________________________________________________ Antidote: Kill an enemy who is infected by the puffball gas. Chapter: Act IV Tips: Just shoot a puffball and kill an enemy who got caught in the gas. _______________________________________________________________________________ Toxic Love: Kill an enemy while infected by puffball gas. Chapter: Act IV Tips: This time shoot a puffball and get caught in the gas yourself then kill an enemy. _______________________________________________________________________________ Nominated: Kill an enemy with a Nom parasite on their head.

Tips: While near a cactus or sharp metal object put a Nom Parasite on an enemy and fling them into the sharp object. _______________________________________________________________________________ Leak: Put a Nom parasite on an enemy's head then get a headshot. Chapter: Act IV onward. Tips: Just put a parasite on an enemy then shoot their head, although this may take a few tries due to the parasite getting destroyed instead of a headshot occuring. _______________________________________________________________________________ Heads Up: Put a Nom Parasite on an enemy's head then take their head off. Chapter: Act IV onward. Tips: Most easily done with the charged flailgun shot, put a parasite on an enemy and fire at the neck. _______________________________________________________________________________ Fast Food: Ram an enemy to death with a hot dog cart. Tips: Merely kick a hot dog cart into an enemy. _______________________________________________________________________________ Sausage Fest: Kill an enemy using a hot dog cart explosion. Tips: Shoot a hot dog cart when an enemy is within a few meters so they get caught in the explosive part of the blast, those to far away merely get hung floating in the air. _______________________________________________________________________________ Exterminator: Kill an entire swarm of electro flies. Tips: Simply kill all 6 bugs of a swarm, if you're having trouble they do pause in the same spot every few seconds, aim at that spot and wait for them to return. When the Bouncer becomes available you can also fire at the lower edge of the swarm and detonate for a clean wipeout. _______________________________________________________________________________ Killer News: Kill someone with the explosion of a newsbot. Tips: The first and best chance to do this is Act III - Chapter 1 after crossing the 2 towers you get sniped at from by Creeps, once on the other side Creeps are running around the building ahead, on the far side should be the newsbot to either shoot, kick, or pull into an enemy. There is also a good chance in Act VII - Chapter 2 as you're heading up the ramp chasing the troopers, once at the top of the ramp aim down the path at a newsbot and fire when a trooper is nearby. _______________________________________________________________________________ Intoxicated: Kill an enemy while drunk on Nom Juice. Tips: Bottles of Nom are actually just about everywhere, just kill an enemy while under the influence. /*** General II ***\ _______________________________________________________________________________ Slam Dunk: Smash an airborne enemy into the ground using the Thumper. Tips: Take any airborne enemy and use the thumper on them. _______________________________________________________________________________ Trap Shooting: Use Bullets to kill a thumped enemy. Tips: Shoot any enemy you just thumped with Bullet-type guns. _______________________________________________________________________________ Flyswatter: Thump an enemy so he smashes into the ceiling or an impaler. Tips: Use the thumper when enemies are in any low ceiling room. _______________________________________________________________________________ Fertilizer: Explode two or more thumped enemies using an environmental explosive. Tips: Center a thumper blast on an explosive object then shoot it once in the air. _______________________________________________________________________________ Touchdown: Thump a stunned miniboss to his death. Tips: Simply thump a stunned miniboss, no need to get rid of the helmet or armor first. _______________________________________________________________________________ Bossed: Kill a miniboss. Tips: Kill a miniboss. _______________________________________________________________________________ Fire in the Hole: When a miniboss is stunned, kick him from behind, then shoot him in the butt. Tips: Just as the description says, although this is one of those that isn't 100%, and make take a few attempts before the miniboss actually dies from these circumstances. _______________________________________________________________________________ Kick Off: Remove a miniboss's helmet, then when he's stunned again, kick his head off. Tips: The easiest way to stun miniboss's are simply with a Peacemaker Carbine charge, then just kick their helmet off, repeat, kick head off. _______________________________________________________________________________ Whiplash: Remove a miniboss's helmet, then when he's stunned again, leash his head off. Tips: The easiest way to stun miniboss's are simply with a Peacemaker Carbine charge, then just kick their helmet off, repeat, leash head off. _______________________________________________________________________________ Stomach Pump: Kill a miniboss by firing a charged drill into his stomach then kicking it. Tips: Just as the description says, although with Penetrator and Bouncer minibosses you need to take off the armor/equiptment first. _______________________________________________________________________________ Friendly Fire: Kill an enemy by flinging them into the fire of another enemy. Tips: This is best done around flaregunner or Bouncer miniboss enemies, leash a nearby enemy into between you and the flaregun or Bouncer enemy and wait for them to kill the guy you leashed. _______________________________________________________________________________ Bombshell: Kill two or more enemies by exploding a Flailbomber. Tips: Just shoot any flailgunner when he's around other enemies, since they usually come in groups you'll often get chain reactions. _______________________________________________________________________________ Assplosion: Kill a burnout by shooting his butt growth. Chapter: Act V onward. Tips: This is best done by leashing or kicking one and hoping they either land or float with their rear facing you, then shoot. _______________________________________________________________________________ Blind fire: Kill someone while blinded by a flare. Tips: this happens often by accident around any flaregun enemy, you only need to even barely have your screen lighted up by an enemies flare for this to work, just so long as you don't strafe 2 miles away from the incoming flare. _______________________________________________________________________________ Discharged: Use a charged PMC to kill a Heavy Echo whilst he's charging his. Tips: Ready a Carbine charge and simply wait for the round glow around your enemies weapon before firing yours. _______________________________________________________________________________ Skyjack: Kill a gyrocopter pilot while the vehicle is airborne. Chapter: BEFORE Act V - Chapter 2 Tips: The last chance to get this skillshot comes in Act V - Chapter 1 when Trishka is trying to get the monorail working. When she starts this 3 gyrocopters appear to attack you, access the dropkit down the stairs from the monorail for a Head Hunter and direct a shot into a pilot's head to kill the pilot without destroying the copter for the skillshot. _______________________________________________________________________________ Parashoot: Leash an enemy out of a gyrocopter and kill him before he lands. Chapter BEFORE Act V - Chapter 2 Tips: this is possible on any gyrocopter you use your standard armory for, just follow the description and leash the enemy, making sure to kill him before the leash anti-gravity effect on the enemy wears off. _______________________________________________________________________________ Flak: Destroy a Gyrocopter using an indirect explosion. Chapter: Act I chapter 2 Tips: This will be the third Gyrocopter you fight, after leaving the hangar and going down the elevator at the end of the scaffolding, fight to the first building and on the other side there will be a Gyrocopter in front of a building just LINED with red barrels, shoot one and you should get it easy. _______________________________________________________________________________ Gotcha: Leash a Creep or Skull Flaregunner and kill them in mid air. Tips: Like the description says, Creeps and Skull Flaregunners usually avoid your leash, so kick them (slide kick with the Creeps) then Leash them to you and kill them any way you want, this works with bullets and in conjunction with other skillshots like Voodoo Doll, Slam Dunk, etc etc just so long as you leashed them, then kill them in that order. _______________________________________________________________________________ Full-Throttle: Use bullets to kill two or more enemies without letting go of the trigger. Tips: By the trigger they mean the right trigger button on your controller, so long as you kill two or more enemies without reloading or letting go of the trigger you'll get the skillshot, this is easiest when controlling the Mechaton or using the occassional temporary Minigun. _______________________________________________________________________________ First In Last Out: Get an enemy airborne, kill a different enemy, then kill the first before he lands. Tips: This includes thumper blasts, just use the thumper and kill a target other than the one used as the center of the thumper then shoot the thumper center target, this is easiest done with one-shot kill weapons like the Head Hunter. /*** Peacemaker Carbine ***\ _______________________________________________________________________________ Headshot: Kill an enemy with a shot to the head. Tips: Pretty simple, although with the Carbine specifically the last shot has to be a headshot, as if an enemy survives a headshot then the kill shot was somewhere else, it won't count. This also applies to any bullet-type weapon. _______________________________________________________________________________ Bullet Kick: Kick an enemy and shoot him to death in mid-air. Tips: Again just kick and shoot, also applies to the Screamer. _______________________________________________________________________________ Bullet Slide: Slide an enemy and shoot him to death in mid-air. Tips: Same as before, instead slide-kick and then shoot, also applies to the Screamer. _______________________________________________________________________________ Gag Reflex: Kill an enemy with a shot to the throat. Tips: Just aim at the neck area and shoot, also applies to the Screamer. _______________________________________________________________________________ Rear Entry: Kill an enemy by shooting him in the butt. Tips: Takes some finagleing, but easiest way is to Thump a crowd and shoot at one who's rear you can see, also to Bullet-type weapons. _______________________________________________________________________________ Tripwire: Shoot a running enemy in the legs to trip him, then finish him off on the ground. Tips: same as the description, open fire on an enemy to trip then kill him, has to be done quickly though before they get back up otherwise it doesn't count. _______________________________________________________________________________ Mercy: Shoot an enemy in the balls and kick or shoot his head off. Tips: Applies to the Screamer too but easiest with the carbine, simple aim at the tender regions and you'll know if you succeeded if they start bending over screaming in pain, when you see this shoot for a headshot, or if you don't want to risk hitting anything other than the head and missing it, run up and kick. _______________________________________________________________________________ Boned: Kill an enemy within a moment of getting them in your sights. Tips: It's literally within a moment, you need put your sights on an enemy and fire your charged shot, usually happens if you have your Carbine pre-charged and fire at an enemy you just ran into through reflexes, this can also be accomplished by pre-charging your gun while aiming at a wall then quickly strafing your sights onto an enemy and firing. _______________________________________________________________________________ Overkill: Execute a headshot with the charge shot. Tips: Nothing special, just ready a charge shot and aim for the head. _______________________________________________________________________________ X-Ray: Kill two or more enemies with a single Charge Shot. Tips: this one can be tricky, you need to line up two or more enemies then fire a charged shot to hit them both, can be done in most areas of the game. If you're still having trouble, in Act VI - Chapter 1 soon after getting the Penetrator drill proceed through to an observation event of flailgunners, move to the right past the wall and aim the charged Carbine parallel to the wall then wait for the flailgunners to run around the corner, lined up perfectly for the shot. /*** Screamer ***\ _______________________________________________________________________________ One Hit Wonder: Perform a clean execution by using only a single bullet to kill the enemy. Tips: This is best done as a Headshot, only thing to it. _______________________________________________________________________________ Surgeon: Kill an enemy by shooting only a single limb repeatedly. Tips: This one is tricky, you need to make sure you hit the same arm or leg a few times and they're dead and there's not much doing this on purpose, best chance is to just use the Screamer as your primary weapon for some time and wait until you get it just through luck. Note that this approach really only applies to standard Skull or Creep enemies. _______________________________________________________________________________ Fast Draw: Kill an enemy the moment you have them in your sights. Tips: This one can be tough, easiest way is to line up a shot head-level while aiming at a wall and then strafing into a stationary enemy for the shot. _______________________________________________________________________________ Snapshot: Kill an airborne enemy the moment you have them in your sights. Tips: Even tougher than the last, easiest method is to just thump a crowd of enemies so they go off-screen up top, then aim up and just keep trying to kill from the left to the right, aiming at the head, and hope you get lucky. _______________________________________________________________________________ Gunslinger: Score two ore more Fast Draws or Snapshots in a row. Tips: possibly the hardest skillshot to set up, your best bet is two Fast Draws, and this is done with the least difficulty in the very beginning of Act III - Chapter 2 where you're in a room, ambushed by Creeps that keep respawning for a certain duration. Here the Creeps cover spots are predictable and give the best chance for strafing and getting headshots twice in a row, and hopefully by extension, the Gunslinger skillshot. I would suggest that while playing the game, just keep restarting the last checkpoint until you get this skillshot before moving on. _______________________________________________________________________________ Enlightenment: Shoot an enemy in the head with a flare and let it explode. Tips: Another Simple one, just score a headshot with the Screamer's charged shot. _______________________________________________________________________________ Misfire: Flare an enemy but kill him before the flare explodes. Tips: This is best done by firing a flare at an enemy and setting up the shot so that flare takes him to a cactus or explosive/electrical object. _______________________________________________________________________________ Fireball: Shoot an enemy with a flare so it explodes and kills another enemy. Tips: Works best with already weakened enemies nearby, as it counts if they die by the flames, the best way to accomplish this is simply shoot a flare to two different enemies and set the same one on fire twice, thus this is best done in crowds. _______________________________________________________________________________ Fireworks: Explode an enemy who is 20 meters or higher in the air. Tips: Most easily done to targets you've thumped, as they're plenty high in the air anyway, although as long as the flare takes the enemy a good ways straight up before exploding it still works without the thumper. _______________________________________________________________________________ Firefighter: Ingite three or more enemies and kill them while they burn. Tips: Another one that calls for big crowds, either shoot a flare twice into the same group of three or more enemies or fire a flare into a group of enemies then switch to a one-shot kill weapon like the Bouncer or Penetrator and take out at least 3 burning enemies in quick succession before the flames stop. /*** Flailgun ***\ _______________________________________________________________________________ Grenade Gag: Wrap a flail around the ehad of an enemy and explode it. Tips: simply aim for the neck and detonate, they will do a choking animation if you hit the right area before you explode it. _______________________________________________________________________________ Gang Bang: Kill two or more enemies with a single flail explosion. Tips: This counts for other flailgun skillshots too, just catch two or more enemies right next to each other in the blast and have them die to get it. _______________________________________________________________________________ Minefield: Kill an enemy by exploding a flail attached to a surface. Tips: Just make sure the flail attaches to an object or the ground and not another enemy and detonate it so it kills one standing near it. _______________________________________________________________________________ Sadist: Wrap a flail around an enemy but kill him before it explodes. Tips: This counts for any way you kill an enemy after wrapping them in a flail except for the actual explosion itself, this is most easily done by flailing an enemy then kicking them into a cactus or sharp metal object, although quickly switching to and killing them with other weapons works too. _______________________________________________________________________________ Meat Slicer: Slice an enemy in half while wrapping the flailr around an object. Tips: A tricky one, this requires you hit an object or floor that an enemy is standing around without it attaching to an enemy, then have the swinging flail slice the enemy as it wraps around something, this is more done through luck of just using the flailgun aiming at enemies without actually aiming at their bodies but instead near them. _______________________________________________________________________________ Head Slicer: Decapitate an enemy after wrapping the flail around an object. Tips: A tricky one, this requires you hit an object or floor that an enemy is standing around without it attaching to an enemy, then have the swinging flail slice the enemy as it wraps around something, this is more done through luck of just using the flailgun aiming at enemies without actually aiming at their bodies but instead near them. This time you have the added bonus of trying to get it to slice their head specifically. _______________________________________________________________________________ Homie Missle: Use a flail-wrapped airborne enemy to kill another enemy. Tips: This is best done by flailing an enemy then kicking them to another enemy then detonating before they hit the ground. _______________________________________________________________________________ Smart Mine: Use a flail-wrapped standing enemy to kill an airborne enemy. Tips: This one is best done by flailing an enemy then leashing another enemy close to him then detonating before that enemy gets too far away or hits the ground. _______________________________________________________________________________ Chain Reaction: Slice two or more enemies in half using a flail Charge Shot. Tips: Just line up 2 or more enemies and send it flying, easier to set up than the Peacemaker Carbine's X-Ray shot. _______________________________________________________________________________ French Revolution: Decapitate two or more enemies with a flail Charge Shot. Tips: Just like Chain Reaction, line up 2 or more enemies and send it flying, only this time keeping the aiming reticle lined up neck-level with the enemies. /*** Boneduster ***\ _______________________________________________________________________________ Topless: Blast away the top half of an enemy. Tips: Best done at point blank, just aim at an enemies torso. _______________________________________________________________________________ Legless: Blow the legs off an enemy. Tips: Best done at point blank, just aim at an enemies legs. _______________________________________________________________________________ Splatterpunk: Kill a downd enemy by blasting him against the floor. Tips: The easiest way to do this is shoot them at mid range to send them to the floor then shoot the now weakened enemy on the ground until expiration. _______________________________________________________________________________ Pump Action: Get an enemy airbone then shotgun blast him into an environmental hazard. Tips: Just kick or leash an enemy so they're floating between you and a sharp object or electrical source and fire, the shotgun has more or less the same force as your kick as far as horizontal push. _______________________________________________________________________________ Torpedo: Kill an enemy by shooting him while sliding. Tips: It's best to fire once you've reached the end of your slide and are point blank with the enemy just before he stops your slide, thus this often happens in conjunction with Legless or Topless. _______________________________________________________________________________ Piledriver: Get an enemy airborne then smash him into a surface with the shotgun blast. Tips: Like Graffiti it's hit or miss if it actually counts and can take a few tries, just find an enemy near a wall and fire once to send them flying back then fire again against the wall or object and hope it works. _______________________________________________________________________________ Juggler: Blast an airborne enemy twice then kill him before or on landing. Tips: the easiest way to do this is by using a Thumper blast to put an enemy straight above you so the aiming difference between blasts is almost nil, then shoot him twice then on the final shot get as much of a point-blank shot as possible to kill him. _______________________________________________________________________________ Slugfest: Kill two or more enemies with one standard shot. Tips: It doesn't matter whether they're side-by-side or one behind the other, just line up as much of a point-blank shot as possible with them still both in the spray and fire, keep trying till 2 enemies die from one shot. _______________________________________________________________________________ Burn: Vaporize two or more enemies with a single Charge Shot. Tips: Simple, just fire at two enemies, just make sure they're within a reasonable distance and both within the aiming reticle. Most easily done with Burnouts since they all run in a straight line to you anyway. _______________________________________________________________________________ Acid Rain: Vaporize two or more enemies in mid-air. Tips: Also simple, just fire at two reasonably close enemies in the air, best done with a thumper blast to put them in the air in the first place. /*** Head Hunter ***\ _______________________________________________________________________________ Show off: Kill an enemy from 10 meters without using the scope. Tips: Unlike other games where the shot from a sniper fires out unpredictably in relationship to the reticle, this game it fires straight every time, you just don't have a reticle so just try your best to aim it at an enemy more than 10 meters away and fire. _______________________________________________________________________________ Broken Wings: Kill a thumped enemy with a guided bullet. Tips: Actually, description says it all, thump then fire. _______________________________________________________________________________ Accident: Shoot an enemy and have him die from hitting an environmental hazard. Tips: Usually best firing at an enemy somewhere other than the head and having the body travel backwards to a sharp, explosive, or electrical object. _______________________________________________________________________________ Bluff: Kill an enemy who is not actually the chosen target of the bullet. Tips: Line up a shot at two guys, making sure the far guy is the designated target but actually drive the bullet to the closer one while the other guy freaks out trying to dodge it. Keep in mind the two enemies actually need to be standing almost right next to each other for this to work. _______________________________________________________________________________ Nutcracker: Kill an enemy by guiding a bullet into his balls. Tips: Almost impossible to do with the enemy trying to dodge the bullet, it's best to thump a group of enemies and try doing it then, although this is one of those skillshots that's not 100%, and thus you may have to do this several times before the game actually counts it. To add to this one wonderful reader had this to suggest, and is a lot less luck -driven than my approach: "After struggling a lot with the Nutckracker skillshot I found an easy way to pull it off. You need the Flail Gun and the Head Hunter. You simply wrap a Flail around one guy's torso or head - not the feet, so he keeps standing. Then you switch to your Head Hunter and shoot through the scope. That way you can easily guide the bullet to his balls and it's way more convenient then shooting them in mid-air ;)" -Ro'Kurorai _______________________________________________________________________________ Hotshot: Kill a dodging enemy by targeting a weak spot like the head or throat. Tips: like the description says, hit the head, remember to lead your target a little bit so the bullet is on an intercept course in the direction the enemy is trying to dodge to. _______________________________________________________________________________ Premature: Explode the bullet to kill the target before it hits him. Tips: Simply press the right trigger just before impact with the enemy to have the explosion kill him instead of the bullet. _______________________________________________________________________________ Letter Bomb: Explode two or more enemies using a single bullet. Tips: Shoot an enemy, then have the bullet drag him close to another enemy before detonating. Be careful not to smother the other enemy though, as they can die just by bludgeoning them with the bullet target, funnily enough. _______________________________________________________________________________ Shrapnel: Exploe two or more airborne eenmies using a single bullet. Tips: Same as before, only thump both enemies first, then shoot one and drag to the other before detonating. _______________________________________________________________________________ Early Retirement: Kill an enemy conrolled with the charged bullet before it explodes. Tips: This works with any explosive, sharp, or electrical object, just run them into it before the bullet explodes. /*** Bouncer ***\ _______________________________________________________________________________ Direct Hit: Kill an enemy with a direct hit from the cannonball. Tips: Remember to not hold the trigger down, to make it detonate on impact instead of remote, then just hit an enemy with the cannonball directly. _______________________________________________________________________________ Money Shot: Kill an enemy by launching a ball at them and exploding it before it hits anything. Tips: Remember to hold the trigger for remote detonation, and fire it so it lobs up over to an enemy then let go of the trigger so it explodes and kills them before hitting an enemy or the ground. _______________________________________________________________________________ Boom: Kill two or more enemies with one cannonball. Tips: Just fire it between two or more enemies standing next to each other. _______________________________________________________________________________ Carpet Bombing: Bounce a cannonball at least two times before killing an enemy with it. Tips: This Doesn't have to be a straight line, you can fire at a wall behind an enemy, counting that and one bounce on the ground before detonating it next to an enemy to kill them. This is obviously also remote detonation _______________________________________________________________________________ Bully: Detonate a cannonball to kill an enemy just after knocking them over with it. Tips: This is a remote detonation task, use the cannonball to hit the enemy, most likely at point blank, to start them being knocked over then release the trigger to explode the cannonball and kill them. _______________________________________________________________________________ Trickshot: Kill an enemy with a cannonball bounced off a wall or obstacle. Tips: Another remote detonation, fire the cannonball so it bounces off a wall to them then release the trigger to kill them. _______________________________________________________________________________ Lucky Shot: Kill an enemy with a cannonball that travelled over 100 meters without bouncing. Tips: This is an impact detonation we're looking for so don't hold down the trigger, but stand a really good distance away so you have to aim up past being able to see the enemy and fire so that it hits them just like with Direct Hit. _______________________________________________________________________________ Meat Fountain: Kill two or more airborne enemies with one cannonball. Tips: Just use the thumper then fire a cannonball so it lobs to in between two targets and remote detonate it near them (Hold down the trigger then release to detonate). This is often in conjunction with Money Shot. _______________________________________________________________________________ Kick of Doom: Kill an enemy by kicking a cannonball. Tips: Fire a charged Bouncer cannonball and then run over a kick it to a group of enemies so it goes bouncing explosions and killing enemies. This can get finicky so kick it into groups of enemies to give a lot of room for error and often bigger heaps of skillpoints. _______________________________________________________________________________ Sledgehammer: Kill 3 or more enemies with one charged cannonball. Tips: Self-explanitory, just keep the bouncing explosion ball killing until it defeats 3 or more targets, this is most easily done with Burnouts, just stand near the cannonball so they come running into the blast radius. /*** Penetrator ***\ _______________________________________________________________________________ Breakdance: Drill an enemy into the ground. Tips: Best when aiming down at an enemy or at their feet when they're closeby. _______________________________________________________________________________ Fan-Tastic: Drill an enemy into the ceiling. Tips: This is most easily done in rooms with high ceilings, thump an enemy and fire at them, making sure there's a ceiling on the other side of the enemy. _______________________________________________________________________________ Root Canal: Insert a drill into an enemy's head. Tips: A simple one, just aim for a headshot. _______________________________________________________________________________ Twisted: Fire a drill into an enemy but have him die through other means. Tips: Line up a shot so an enemy goes into electricity or a sharp or explosive object. _______________________________________________________________________________ Mile High Club: Send an enemy into the sky. Tips: Just like Fan-tastic (except for the rooms with ceilings), thump an enemy and fire at them so that they go flying into the sky. This can be done without a thump but it's less predictable and may not go up into the sky. _______________________________________________________________________________ Air Strike: Impale a thumped enemy into a standing enemy. Tips: although it doesn't specify this is better done with a charged shot, thump one enemy but not the other then fire at the thumped enemy, redirecting the shot into the standing one. _______________________________________________________________________________ Shiskebab: Impale two or mroe enemies with a single drill. Tips: This is actually rather easy, just fire at an enemy with a drill and usually the drill is like a hunter-seeker missle, seeking out enemies behind the target if they're reasonably close to parallel with a lot of room for error. _______________________________________________________________________________ Wingmen: Impale two or more airborne enemies with a single drill. Tips: Simply thump two enemies and fire at the closer one, provided they're reasonably close to parallel with each other. _______________________________________________________________________________ Stinger: Suspend a drilled enemy in mid-air, then kick him into another enemy. Tips: It's best to do this with 2 standing enemies, fire the charged shot at one then line up the other behind him and kick. _______________________________________________________________________________ Drilldo: Ram two or more enemies during a slide with the charged weapon. Tips: Just charge your Penetrator (doesn't take away charges for just ramming enemies) and find two enemies near each other and slide so you kill both of them. /*** Secret ***\ _______________________________________________________________________________ Pancake: Flatten an enemy with a kicked object. Chapter: Act I - Chapter 2 Tips: You can get this shortly after the second Gyrocopter, just go down the elevator and kick the boxes that the enemies bring down for cover and a couple on each side will get caught, if you don't succeed in this, kicking down the door just before the room Ishi recharges in gives a garaunteed Pancake, and is actually unavoidable. _______________________________________________________________________________ Mass Extinction: Crush an enemy with the Mechaton. Chapter: Act 2 - Chapter 2 Tips: This usually happens whether you're trying or not, if an enemy runs under the mechaton's legs while he's moving he'll be crushed and you'll get the skillshot. _______________________________________________________________________________ Kill-o-Watt: Kill an enemy by flinging them into the model buildings in the Mechaton Park. Chapter: Act 2 - Chapter 2 Tips: It's simply when you are going through the scaled-down model city send enemies flying into the arcing buildings for the skillshot. _______________________________________________________________________________ Fish Food: Kill an enemy by flinging them into a body of water. Tips: This includes most water, be it the ocean or a pond, chances include Act I - chapter 3 before entering the cave, Act III - Chapter 1 during the sniper areas, and Act IV - Chapter 2 in the pond near where you fight the miniboss that comes out of the helicopter. _______________________________________________________________________________ Floater: Kill an enemy by flinging him into the rushing water Chapter: Act III - Chapter 2 Tips: After being ambushed at the start of the chapter, go through the hole in the wall to the bridge and let it down, then slide kick a creep and fling him into the river under the bridge. _______________________________________________________________________________ Grinder: Kill an enemy by flinging them into the Grindwheels at the Hydro Plant. Chapter: Act III - Chapter 2 Tips: When you've saved Trishka and gotten out to the Hydro plant just send enemies flying via a kick to the giant Grindwheels. _______________________________________________________________________________ Man Toast: Kill an enemy by flinging them into the furnaces inside the dam. Chapter: Act III - Chapter 2 Tips: Just simply when you're in the furnace room where you find Trishka remember to leash or kick a creep into a furnace. _______________________________________________________________________________ Tenderizer: Kill an enemy by crushing them with the elevator in the collapsed building. Chapter: Act IV - Chapter 3 Tips: When you kill the enemy manning the minigun turret continue past him to find the elevator shaft, run up to the door of the elevator on the left and summon the elevator down, err, I mean left, crushing them on the way. _______________________________________________________________________________ Ding Dong: Kill an enemy by crushing him with debris from the collapsed building. Chapter: Act IV - Chapter 3 Tips: After sliding down the interior of the collapsed building and then running through the holographic clock below, you'll be in the room with the green ammo case and up ahead you'll see a leash target, leash that with an enemy under it using the vault hurdle as cover to get the skillshot. _______________________________________________________________________________ Halloween: Put a Nom parasite on an enemy's head then eletricute them Chapter: Act V - Chapter 3 Tips: Act V - Chapter 3 is the only easy time to get this skillshot, since it has Nom parasites and advertisement columns, just put the parasite on someone then knock them into the pillar. If you miss this chance you can still do this in Act VII - chapter 1, with the room that spawns 4 minibosses, and you'll be using the Penetrator miniboss's electricity to do it, but obviously that's a much more precarious endeavor. _______________________________________________________________________________ Steady Hand: Kill a Burnout with bullets within a moment of getting him in your sights. Chapter: Act V onwards. Tips: One of the harder ones, but not too bad, just kill a burnout by shooting his growths and killing him just a moment after you lay your sights on him. _______________________________________________________________________________ Dino-Sore: Shoot the sore on the back of the Hekaton's head. Chapter: Act V - Chapter 3 Tips: This is during the on-rails helicopter scene, any time you get a shot at the back of the Hekaton's head aim at the sore you caused at the end of Act I, you get 3 chances during the segment to get the skillshot. _______________________________________________________________________________ Outburst: Kill an enemy by flinging them into the electrical storm. Chapter: Act VI - Chapter 1 Tips: Simply find an area where the lightning is coming down and kick an enemy into it, this works kicking them out of windows too. _______________________________________________________________________________ Sucker: Kill an enemy by flinging them into a ventilation fan. Tips: Find a fan, or in Act V, the helicopter blades, and kick enemies into it, chances to get this are in Act II - Chapter 1, with the fanblades on the rooftops, Act V - Chapter 2 with the helicopter blades, or Act VI - Chapter 3 by the ventilation fans onboard the Ulysses during the no-fire segment. _______________________________________________________________________________ Forced: Kill an enemy by flinging them into an electromagnetic pulse field. Chapter: Act VI - Chapter 3 Tips: When hurdling over the machinery to get through the generator column, leash or kick a burnout into the fields when they come back online. _______________________________________________________________________________ Ejaculated: Send a Heavy Trooper out the Cargo bays of the dropship.
