In this guide I explain how to beat each CHAPTER as well as help with the descriptions of the WEAPONS, HACKS and TECHS of the game, hopefully this helps you. =============================================================================== I.

Chapter 1: The Dark Spark  =============================================================================== Move to the MARKER and then you drop, use the BLADE DASH ability to kill 3 guys here, then grab the ASSAULT RIFLE and then shoot the BILLBOARD and then the TANK to jump up, keep following the path till you see a RAMP with 2 BARS and each side, when you drop down there are 3 guys here then 3-4 more guys, blow up the TANKER to drop the BRIDGE, after coming up look right for another BILLBOARD, then continue don the TUNNEL where you will fight at first 3 GUYS then 2 GUYS then 1 GUYS then 2 at the exit, push all the TRAINS out the way for you to move up. After hearing OPTIMUS PRIME tell you the amount of the people outside get ready, as you come out there are 2 GUYS to the left and then about 13-16 GUYS drop down, just hold out till the ROCKET TROOPERS come for you to advance further, kill all before leaving, [THERE ARE 2 BILLBOARDS IN THIS AREA, 1 IS ABOVE WHERE YOU CAME FROM AND THE OTHER ONE IS ON OPPOSITE END OF THIS ONE AND UP TO THE RIGHT]. After entering the next part there are about 3-4 GUYS, you must kill all the before OPTIMUS PRIME and BUMBLEBEE show up, make sure you get the BILLBOARD here, drop down and about 4-6 GUYS, continue down into the GARAGE where 3 GUYS come out after blasting a hole in the wall, continue and see a BILLBOARD when you drop down across from you, keep moving till a CUTSCENE happens. You need to hold out till the energy field around the DARK SPARK comes down, basically there are infinite enemies so make sure to use cover and pick off enemies, using the HEAVY WEAPON here is also good, when the shield drops just run to it to finish the level. =============================================================================== IV. Chapter 2: The Lost Vault  =============================================================================== You should do this part all in VEHICLE MODE, the reason being is that these things are small and the SCATTER BLASTER really sucks, you can just zoom through this part to STARSCREAM and SHOCKWAVE, before you can enter the building you must kill enough of the INSECTS before you can enter, then the doors shut behind you can then more INSECTS come in, continue moving forward till you enter another room with more INSECTS, make your way to the LEVER where you then switch characters from SOUNDWAVE to SHOCKWAVE.  Kill all the INSECTS in the room till the door opens, after that you will encounter HARDSHELL, around him when he TRANSFORMS as he will hit you with a EMP BEAM which is really annoying, stay in VEHICLE FORM and use the ROCKETS to down him really fast.  After defeating HARDSHELL you will fight HARDSHOT which is the easiest of the 3 BOSSES here, just stay in VEHICLE FORM to end his existence really fast, if you decide to fight him fair then you have to deal with all the INSECTS near him.  SHARPSHOT is the hardest of the 3, you have to damage him a bit and then he will run away to his SNIPER SPOT, to beat him easily you have to do a HIT-N-RUN, boost underneath where he is and then come straight up and use your SPECIAL ABILITY which cause massive damage and then jump off and stay underneath him, repeat this 3-4 times to beat him [YOU CANNOT FIGHT HIM FAIRLY AS HIS WEAPON CAN SOMEIMES INSTANTLY KILL YOU AND 2 SHOTS AND YOUR DEAD EVEN WITH FULL SHIELDS AND HEALTH, MAKE SURE TO AVOID THE TOXIC WASTE AS IT WILL EMP YOU AND CAUSE 50% DAMAGE TO YOU NO MATTER WHAT]. You then shift back to SOUNDWAVE with STARSCREAM, just move up and when it prompts you to use LASERBEAK [SPECIAL ABILITY] use it and defend and wait for LASERBEAK to open the DOORS for you, do this about 1-2 times, after you regroup with SHOCKWAVE there will be some TURRETS and then SCENE. After the scene there is an enemy below you, wait here till the 2 ORBS come attack you, then there are about 2-3 GUYS on the left and right side below you with another 2 ORBS when you go down, and on the bottom floor another 2 ORBS with 2-3 GUYS. Now switch to SHOCKWAVE again, switch to your VEHICLE FORM to take out the enemies here easier, there are about 6-9 GUYS in the corridor, take your time to take them out till you reach the power core. Drop down and head left and there are about 4-6 GUYS and stay in your VEHICLE FORM to pick them off, then pull the LEVER and move to the next one across from you, same amount of GUYS as the last spot you were at with 2 ORBS guarding this spot, then the next 2 LEVERS have the same type of enemies, when you have pulled al 4 LEVERS you can go to the middle, where there are 4-5 GUYS waiting for you, after you have dispatched them pull the LEVER and then CUTSCENE. =============================================================================== V. Chapter 3: Getaway  =============================================================================== Clear all the SWARMS out on each floor with IRONHIDE till you reach the very top of the building, now IRONHIDE tells you to press a BUTTON to which you get trapped, hold out till IRONHIDE opens a DOOR for you to escape. Now make your way to each MARKER to get back to IRONHIDE, you will encounter enemies but shouldnât pose a problem for you, after reaching IRONHIDE you have to fight a GIANT INSECT, to hurt it you must make it CHARGE at you and then evade it for you to hurt it, keep doing so till it is destroyed, and when you reach the exit there is another one. Just make your way down to IRONHIDE till you have to pull him up and then meet up with OPTIMUS PRIME and BUMBLEBEE, then you have to call in the TRAIN and when you get back to it, it will takeoff, you then have to defend till the next one shows up, activate the TURRET here so it will help you out, wait till STARSCREAM shows up and shoot him as well as the INSECTS, keep holding out till the TRAIN shows up. =============================================================================== VI. Chapter 4: Possession  =============================================================================== Move up slowly and takeout the 2-3 AUTOBOTS that are here, move up and drop to the left and fight about 5-8 AUTOBOTS while fighting IRONHIDE, when you move up IRONHIDE should have at least 1-2 AUTOBOTS with him, and then he is really easy [DO NOT ENGAGE UP CLOSE]. After getting split up from SOUNDWAVE, go right and pickoff the AUTOBOTS but they are infinite so takeout all 4 GENERATORS in VEHICLE FORM and use the ROCKETS to do so, move up to the next part and do the same thing and then they send 2 HEAVYS at you, after you destroy them a CUTSCENE will happen. Pick up the FUSE and put it into the GENERATOR to get power, then do it again till you hear a RECORDING, then make your way up the PLATFORMS and to activate another GENERATOR and then head to the BASEMENT to activate the POWER CORE, when you are making your way back up, you will encounter some GUYS along the way which pose no immediate threat, continue onto SOUNDWAVE and then continue up till you have to blow up the DEBRIS and finish the level. =============================================================================== VII. Chapter 5: Hustle  =============================================================================== Head to all 4 BEACONS to turn them off, you have to deal with LAND and AIR enemies but shouldnât be problem for you, after you have done that you have to head back to SHOCKWAVE and SHARPSHOT, you then have to head to each MARKER with SHOCKWAVE to advance [IF YOU DONâT HE WONT MOVE], keep heading to each MARKER till you reach the AUTOBOT DROPSHIP to which you have to destroy to get up. After exiting the room drop down and head left where you see 1 GUY so take him out and then when you drop down there will be a SCENE. After the scene move up and use your DRONE to draw enemy fire for you to advance up, keep pushing up and damaging CLIFFJUMPER so he uses his CLOAKING, keep killing the AUTOBOTS till SHOCKWAVE tells you to go down the left path. After exiting the room there will be GUYS on the ground as well as on the PILLARS, move up slowly taking out the enemies while damaging CLIFFJUMPER in the process. When fighting CLIFFJUMPER there is a CHALLENGE not to destroy the CATWALK hes on, if you are up to it then you have to have really good aim otherwise just blow up the CATWALKS and fight him on the ground, he will use his CLOAKING ability if he gets hurt too much, careful of his SNIPER RIFLE as its likes SHARPSHOTS and can kill you really fast, after you beat him you will get a CUTSCENE. =============================================================================== VIII. Chapter 6: The Gates of Kaon  =============================================================================== Pick up the PHOTON BURST RIFLE and shoot the RED PIPES just to the left of TANK, then move up and 4 GUYS here, continue all the way down and look left for PIPES which have another RED PIPES hiding behind them, move into the next room and when you see the first AUTOBOT jump out to the right and takeout the last TANK by shooting the RED PIPES behind it, head back to SHOCKWAVE and help him fend off AUTOBOTS till you can enter the DOOR across from you. After entering you will have to defend again till you can go up top and TRANSFORM into BRUTUS, here you have to destroy all the BRIDGES and then defend your allies from the AUTOBOTS till you can return to SHOCKAVE and then a CUTSCENE. =============================================================================== IX. Chapter 7: Infiltration  =============================================================================== Follow the highway till JAZZ says "thereâs some enemies below you" now there are about 3-4 after killing the GUY below you, when you move up there are about another 3-5 GUYS, keep moving up and JAZZ and OPTIMUS will start talking, when you are about to drop there are 2 GUYS waiting for you. Go and PRY the DOORS open and continue till you reach the TURRETS, use your SPECIAL ABILITY which is your KINETIC SHIELD, after that keep moving up till JAZZ splits up with you, then look left and takeout all the TARGETS before you can deactivate the turrets for JAZZ and then some more TARGETS come after deactivating the turrets, head up to JAZZ. Shoot the CONSOLE and then about 5-8 GUYS and then 4 WALL GUYS, jump onto the WALKWAY and smash the WALL and then PRY the DOORS open, there are about 7-10 GUYS here, move up and destroy the RED POWER CORES to disable the LASERS for you to move up, get to the top to shoot the last one to disable the LASERS to room you need to go to. After the SCENE you will have to save CLIFFJUMPER, takeout all the enemies first before JAZZ can start helping CLIFFJUMPER escape, if you want to do the CHALLENGE [DO NOT USE THE TURRET] make sure you have a BATTLE DRONE and DIFFRACTION BARRIER up to protect JAZZ otherwise just use the TURRET to one shot everyone you hit, after that you have a SCENE. =============================================================================== X. Chapter 8: A Desperate Plan  =============================================================================== Follow the PROBE till you reach a room with FANS, then look for the glowing GATES to destroy with your SPECIAL ABILITY, then follow the PROBE again but this time you have to avoid the FIRE that is coming out the walls, when you reach the end go up and 4 GUYS waiting for you. After exiting the room you will see STARSCREAM, after he leaves you can attack, SNIPE everyone from here and then go pull one of the LEVERS, there will be about 9-11 GUYS after pulling the LEVER with a HUGE GUY, stay in VEHICLE FORM to take out all the enemies, then do the other side LEVER and will the same amount of enemies minus the HUGE GUY, after that go up top and pull the final LEVER. After you have dropped down you have the option of changing weapons if you want but not really needed, after you see STARSCREAM again will have to fight 3 TURRETS and 7-9 GUYS with 2 more additional TURRETS on the left and right walls after destroying everyone first. You need to restart both REACTORS to make the weapon work, both the LEFT and RIGHT side reactors have the same amount of enemies in them, destroy the CONSOLE to restart the reactor, before you can get to the main CONSOLE you have to destroy about 3-4 AIRCRAFTS, after you fire the weapon you have to escape, just be careful of the FIRE and LASERS, if you avoid getting hit by these you get a TROPHY. =============================================================================== XI. Chapter 9: Ascension  =============================================================================== Go up top and then PRY the DOORS open and then about 4-5 GUYS that come out, you then tell JAZZ and CLIFFJUMPER to leave and you to head out solo. Destroy all the GUYS here so only the TURRETS remain, go up to the first TURRET and destroy the CORE that is behind it and the CORE behind to the right beside some CRATES and then use the CONSOLE, then destroy on of the TURRETS, head over to the over side and turn off the CONSOLE to destroy the net TURRET, after that about 4-6 GUYS come out to kill you, exit the room. After coming out there will be about 6-8 GUYS and 1 HUGE GUY waiting at the exit, takeout all the small GUYS and then focus on the big one, after that you have fight MEGATRON. You have to knock down all the GUYS that spring up, donât worry they are fairly weak but can be handful if they swarm you, after you takeout the first wave, MEGATRON will come down and just shoot him so that he has to recharge using the DARK SPARK at the same time there are 4 PILLARS you have to destroy, repeat this step 3 times to win the fight. =============================================================================== XII. Chapter 10: Hunted  =============================================================================== Go left and see 2 GUYS here, keep moving up and then BRIDGE gets blown up, use the GRAPPLE to get across, kill the people across the BRIDGE and then the SNIPER to the right, after this you need to provide SNIPER COVER for DRIFT while he is on the bottom, you have to do this 3 times and there are about 3-4 guys each time, after clearing the last of clusters you reach a AMMO CACHE, after that you have to face FLYING SNIPERS, so take cover and pick off one by one till DRIFT comes over. After getting DRIFT up the wall in front of you will blow up and 4-5 GUYS, then head to the next part where there are 13-15 GUYS waiting for you, after you have dispatched them head to the MARKER and watch SCENE. After that go left and 4-5 GUYS, keep moving forward and when you reach the next room with people the DOORS behind you close, there are 3 GUYS on the bottom with you and 2 HEAVYS up top, when you have killed everyone you can advance to the next part. =============================================================================== XIII. Chapter 11: Investigation  =============================================================================== This basically happens right after when those big DOORS at the end of CHAPTER 10, head to the right side and takeout the GUY and destroy the CONSOLE here, also destroy the CONSOLE across from you, now you need to hold out till the BLAST DOORS open on the bottom before you can move any further [USE THE V32 CYBR CORRUPTER TO MAKE IT EASIER FOR YOU], basically the same thing as the first room minus destroying the consoles, when everyone is dead you can head up to the next part and get a SCENE, after that snipe the GUY holding DRIFT and another scene. Now you play as DRIFT, go look left for a RAMP going to up which leads to a WEAPON CACHE, make sure you equip yourself properly to face them, have the V32 CYBR CORRUPTER as it will be your best friend, keep holding out till the TITANS show up, you the need to run away with BEE so just follow the MARKERS, when you shoot the CONTROLS open the DOOR shoot the CONTROLS on the other side to close it. Now make your way to the top, there are about 4-6 GUYS on each floor before the top, when you reach the TOP a SCENE will happen. =============================================================================== XIV. Chapter 12: Ambushed  =============================================================================== This is right after you reach the EXIT in CHAPTER 11, here you have to hold out till the TITAN shows up to which GRIMLOCK shows up in DINO FORM to help you, keep attacking till you are allowed to switch to TRANSFORMER MODE, you then need to destroy the TARGETS and then onto the TITAN. =============================================================================== XV. Chapter 13: Extinction  =============================================================================== Continue down the HIGHWAY killing everything in you path until OPTIMUS tells you to go down another ROUTE, here you will encounter a lot of enemies and then few TITANS that show up afterwards, continue moving till you see an ENERGY FIELD, use the CARS to the right throw at the BEACON to destroy it to lower the FIELD, now move up and you need to destroy 3 BEACONS by throwing DEBRIS at them to stop the enemy reinforcements from coming, here you will encounter LEAPERS which jump at you but should pose no problem. After meeting up the OPTIMUS and the rest of the gang you need to protect OPTIMUS, there are 4 waves that come at you, the first 2 waves are no problem and OPTIMUS shouldnât get hurt that much, the last 2 WAVES are harder as they throw a lot of small fries with a few TITANS to take you down with OPTIMUS, stay in DINO MODE till the TITANS show up to cause mass panic with your FIRE BREATH. =============================================================================== XVI. Chapter 14: Locked Down  =============================================================================== Move up and encounter 3 GUYS and then the next room has 3 more GUYS, go blow up the TANK to the right where BUMBLEBEE splits up, avoid the LASERS which are very easy unless you are terrible with timing, when you reach the next room there are about 9-13 GUYS here, keep pushing forward till you meet DRIFT and then about 4-6 GUYS, when you reach the next room 3-4 GUYS are in the room with a TITAN breaking the wall for his entrance. Now onto LOCKDOWN, you have to hold out till he tries to activate the GENERATORS, you have to destroy 3 of them before you can fight him. The main point for this part is using cover and the CORRUPTER to help you out, make sure you take out all the FLYING SNIPERS that come in which is going to cause a problem. This is probably the easiest fight in the game, you cannot damage LOCKDOWN while he is hanging of the WALLS and must shoot him for him to come down and attack you, all you have to do is have your KINETIC SHIELD [YOUR SPECIAL ABILITY] out every time you shoots and melees you which will block all the damage, you have to run and recharge your SHIELD if you use the SHOT ABLITY in the SHIELD, just keep repeating this step till you beat LOCKDOWN. =============================================================================== XVII. Primary Weapons  =============================================================================== Here are all the primary weapons in the game, certain weapons can only be obtained from GEAR BOXES or by finding them on the ground ==================== NEURON ASSAULT RIFLE ==================== This is the weakest weapon in the game but probably the best all-round weapon to use, it has decent damage and can used in range of combat, you probably want to reduce the recoil first as it is pretty bad then work on whatever you want next. =========== RIOT CANNON =========== This is really powerful weapon but the only drawback is the amount of ammo you get and sometimes the rocket doesnât go straight, this is good for taking out tough enemies and should be used when you upgrade it at least twice. ================= SUBSONIC REPEATER ================= The fastest and most deadliest weapon in the game, the problem with this is its only meant for close quarters fight making mid difficult and long impossible, you want to reduce the recoil first on this weapon and then upgrade either the reserve ammo space or the amount of ammo in the clip. =============== SCATTER BLASTER =============== This is good for enemies that are big and cant really move a lot while fighting small things become a problem, like the SUBSONIC REPEATER its only meant for close quarters and only close quarters as itâs a SHOTGUN. ============ PATH BLASTER ============ This is probably the best weapon besides the PHOTON BURST RIFLE, itâs the most accurate of the weapons and the damage is extremely high, the drawback is the ammo clip and reserve, you want to upgrade that first, when fully upgraded this weapon is a monster and will obliterate almost anything in 1 hit with its special ability. ================== PHOTON BURST RIFLE ================== A 3-Round burst weapon, this will take a while to get used to and to be efficiently used, you must be using the SCOPE, it usually takes 2-3 bursts to take something down but is the most accurate weapon by far but the NUCLEON CHARGE RIFLE holds that title. ==================== NUCLEON CHARGE RIFLE ==================== This weapon is the strongest and most accurate weapon because itâs a SNIPER RIFLE, for it to used to its fullest potential you must charge the weapon while aiming to 100% to do maximum damage, the only problem is if you fight a lot of enemies and this weapon doesnât have good ammo capacity. ============= EDK TECH VOLT ============= A weapon that connects with other enemies if close enough causing a chain effect making it really useful when fighting in close quarters and against small enemies, the problem with this is its range and its damage output which are really poor. =============== THROWBACK LASER =============== If you watched the original TRANSFORMERS in 1984 you would know what this is if not I will tell you, itâs the weapon that MEGATRON transforms into and have someone else fire, yes its pretty awesome, its pretty good overall with a nice to kick to it every time you fire it. =============================================================================== XVIII. Heavy Weapons  =============================================================================== Here are all the heavy weapons in the game, certain weapons can only be obtained from GEAR BOXES or by finding them on the ground. ================= A-4 PULSAR CANNON ================= This can either be a hit or miss weapon, the reason being is that you have the ability to detonate the shot whenever you want by just pressing the aim button, now this can be useful in some cases and in some terrible, its not a bad weapon. ==================== THERMO ROCKET CANNON ==================== You donât have to be in your vehicle form to use rockets that track, this will lock-on any enemy giving the amount time needed to track, the big downside of this weapon is the reload time which takes a really long time, when this is fully upgraded itâs a beast. ====================== CORROSIVE SLIME CANNON ====================== This is slow down any enemy caught in its area when shot, it will also damage enemies over time meaning if you are pinned down this is useful for taking out those guys without peaking out to shoot them. ============= GEAR SHREDDER ============= This is pretty neat weapon as you can charge it so it can fire 3 blades and will go more damage, if the enemies are close enough it will auto track and will bounce of certain enemies and surfaces. ================== V32 CYBR CORRUPTOR ================== Probably my most favorite weapon to use in the game and the best of all the HEAVY WEAPONS, why fight enemies when they can fight each other, this weapon will make any enemy except boss fights attack their allies and help you for a while until they are either destroyed or if you hit them by accident, the big drawback on this weapon is that you only get a couple of shots to start off with so make those shots count. ================= ENERGON HARVESTER ================= This is close range weapon that will destroy almost any enemy it comes in contact with, it fires 2 shotgun blasts causing the enemy to drop health and give it to you when he dies, not a good weapon to unless you are in close quarters then itâs a lifesaver. =========== SLING SHOCK =========== This shoots a BOLAS that will entangle an enemy and disintegrate them, this can hit multiple targets if they are close enough but has a little dip when firing it. ============== X18 SCRAPMAKER ============== Its pretty much the improved version of the NUERON ASSAULT RIFLE, it really strong but the recoil on this thing is garbage making you have to fire in controlled bursts to effective hit enemies till you upgrade it. ==================== CHAOS-RIFT COMBUSTER ==================== Itâs a grenade launcher which you detonate in the ait to make it a CLUSTER BOMB and hit multiple enemies in a small area, not really a useful weapon to use unless doing a challenge. =============================================================================== XIX. Hacks  =============================================================================== These things can either make the game harder or easier for you, playing with a HACK will give you a big boost in EXPERENICE POINTS from 75%-300%, the higher the percentage the harder the game will be for you, if you want to get rid of the current HACK you have you can either equip a new one or just discard it [IF YOU DISCARD OR EQUIP A NEW HACK YOU WILL NOT GET BACK THE ONE YOU JUST GAVE UP]. ========== TOUGH GUYS ========== [200% EXP BONUS] This hack makes your enemies weaker which is good for you but the downside is that they do way more damage to you, itâs a nice trade off if you want that kind of challenge and should be used when you have at least some decent weapons and upgrades. ================= EXPLODING ENEMIES ================= [75% EXP BONUS] This hack makes enemies you destroy blow up damaging nearby enemies, allies or you if you are too close to them when you destroy them quite useful when fighting a cluster of them. =================== EXPLODING HEADSHOTS =================== [150% EXP BONUS] This hack is basically the same thing as the EXPLODING ENEMIES HACK but you have to get a headshot for it work, this is good for people look like aiming for headshots. ========= QUICKSHOT ========= [175% EXP BONUS] This hack makes you fire your weapons faster but your enemies have more HP since you can fire faster. ====== NO-HUD ====== [300% EXP BONUS] This hack makes all the everything disappear leaving only you with a nice view of the game and character, you cant see the amount of ammo you have, how much HP and shields you have left as well as any indicators that show up in the game. ====================== NO SHIELD REGENERATION ====================== [300% EXP BONUS] This hack is obvious, NO SHIELD REGEN which means once your shield come off you cant regenerate them unless you kill an enemy this makes you take cover more often and accuracy plays a big role with this. ========= MORE AMMO ========= [75% EXP BONUS] This hack allows you get more ammo from enemies that are destroyed by you with the trade-off of getting less health when they die. =========== MORE HEALTH =========== [125% EXP BONUS] This hack is the opposite of the MORE AMMO HACK, instead of dropping more ammo you get more health often, this is quite useful at certain parts in the game but ammo is always a key factor in the game so playing this is risky. =============================================================================== XX. Techs  =============================================================================== This will make the game easier for you as you have abilities to help you out, these range from grenades to drones to healing you and others, having the right TECH equipped for each mission is crucial for beating harder missions. ================== ENERGON HEAL BURST ================== This will heal you and nearby allies, making you a walking hospital so everyone get in line to get healed. ================= ENERGON RECHARGER ================= This will constantly heal you making you virtually impossible to kill until the TECH wears off. ===================== DIMENSIONAL DECIMATOR ===================== ======================= GUIDED CLUSTER GRENADES ======================= You will toss grenades that will auto track any enemies in the nearby area, turning anything into scrap metal ============ BATTLE DRONE ============ This little fella will follow you around providing some extra firepower when you need it, it can also act as a decoy so you flank those enemies that have you pinned down. =================== DIFFRACTION BARRIER =================== This emits a spherical barrier which protects anyone inside preventing any enemy fire from hurting you, you can shoot from inside the barrier but if they decide to rush you be prepared as they can enter the barrier. =============== VEHICLE BOOSTER =============== This will increase your defensive and offensive output while in VEHICLE FORM making you a force to be reckoned with. ====================== SHIELD RESTORE BOOSTER ====================== This will instantly heal your shields when downed making this a must carry tech when fighting a lot of enemies. ==================== EXP MULTIPLIER X2-X6 ==================== When activated you will get 2-6 times the original EXP for killing enemies, this is useful for starting players as you need to level up to get better stuff. ========== C.U.R.E.D. ========== Unlike the BATTLE DRONE this guy just heals you, this makes you a walking tank which is helpful when pushing enemies back or rushing their defense. =============================================================================== XXI.
