I. INTRODUCTION
==============================================================================

-----------------------
Background to Metal Max
-----------------------
This is the first game of the Metal Max series of awesome turn-based RPGs that
feature driving around an open world in your very own customised tanks, and
defeating fearsome outlaw monsters for rewards. Sadly, although popular in
Japan, these games are largely unknown and neglected by Western gamers, partly
because only one (Metal Saga on the PS2) has been localised into English.
However, Metal Max Returns (MMR) on the SNES was translated by Aeon Genesis
and since this game is a vastly improved remake of Metal Max, that's the one
to play if you're interested in the earlier games. (Or you could try playing
Metal Max and Metal Max 2 on the Wii Virtual Console, although again, these
are only in Japanese.)

Metal Max was released in Japan in 1991 and the series is still going strong
with the recent release of Metal Max 3 on the DS in 2010. That game is far too
text rich for someone with no understanding of Japanese to play, but in my
desperation to play another Metal Max game I decided to play this one,
although the real reason for writing a FAQ as well is to contribute towards
the NES FAQ Completion Project at GameFAQs.


----------------
Writing this FAQ
----------------
It might sound a bit foolhardy to write a FAQ for an RPG in Japanese, but I
wrote a walkthrough for Metal Max Returns so I know the game very well, and
the original is a little less complicated with fewer items and Wanted outlaws
to find. I've made use of Metal Maniax, the Japanese Metal Max Wiki type site,
and the translation of MMR from Aeon Genesis to identify English place names
and item names. This was the only way I could play the game, with the
translations in front of me at every roll of my tanks. It's not the fighting
that's the problem, but recognising and remembering the names of the myriad of
items, weapons, tank parts and such, that are essential to completing the
game! There's a lot of micro-management involved and the menus are complex and
rich with details, but if you're a huge fan of Metal Max games, then playing
the very first game is hard to resist!


--------------
Using this FAQ
--------------
If you follow this FAQ you'll be able to play (and beat!) Metal Max even if
you cannot understand Japanese: so long as you recognise the difference
between はい (Yes) and いいえ (No)! (Actually Yes is ALWAYS the first option and
No the second, so it's pretty straightforward.)

The FAQ is divided into three main sections::

* The introductory sections explain the menus, giving both Japanese and
  English names for all commands, and offer a general overview of how the game
  works as well as a couple of quick reference lists.

* The walkthrough takes you through the whole game, detailing where to find
  everything (including monsters), listing what is sold in the shops and
  Vending Machines, giving advice about what to buy, and adding a little
  information about the story events, so it's not completely spoiler-free!

* The lists section includes everything in the game: tanks, tank parts,
  equipment and items (called tools), giving both Japanese and English names.
  Monsters are listed in alphabetical order with Japanese names added where
  possible.

o----------------------o----------------------o

* 話す
  Speak:     select this option to talk to anyone. You must be facing them if
             they are shopkeepers.
* 統計
  Strength:  select this to see the current status of party members and tanks.
             They all appear on one page for ease of assessment, and there are
             4 more options.
             1 - See character and tank statistics and equipment.
                 Click on a name to see a new page of all stats and equipment.
                 This works for humans and tanks and shows any damaged parts
                 for tanks.
                 On the tank menu click on one piece of equipment and then use
                 the A button to view more detailed stats in a small
                 additional window.
             2 - See how many Armour Tiles a vehicle has, and change them.
                 You can remove Armour Tiles from this screen by clicking on
                 the tank name and scrolling the number shown.
             3 - Access a new page to see all tank data. (See next section!)
             4 - Shows Current Gold.

* 装備
  Equipment: see the current equipment for your characters and tanks.
             Use this option to change character and tank equipment.
             First of all select a character or tank and you'll see a new
             menu.
             1 - Equip: move the cursor over any piece to equip or unequip.
             2 - Give: choose a piece and then choose the person or tank to
                 give it to.
             3 - Discard: choose the piece and confirm if you want to throw it
                 away.

* 調べる
  Examine:   use this to open chests, look at posters, inspect plant pots,
             check the ground beneath your feet or tank and activate Vending
             Machines. Use this command when driving a tank if you wish to
             tow another tank. Drive on top of it to Examine it, and then say
             YES to tow it!

* 乗降
  Alight:    use this command to exit a tank or to enter one when standing on
             top of it. (If you're towing a tank it will become detached.)

* 道具
  Tools      check this command to see how many items you are carrying.
             1 - Use: click on one to use it. You will be able to choose who
                      to use it on.
             2 - Transfer: the second option allows you to transfer items to
                      another party member.
             3 - Discard: the third option allows you to drop an unwanted item
                      if you answer "Yes".
             Each character can only carry 8 items but that does not include
             equipment. Items are stored individually and do not stack up.
             Use this command to select a tank and use its Tools or transfer
             them. You can turn them ON if that's required.

* 砲弾
  Shells:    shows your tanks and how many shells they are carrying. This
             includes how many are left for Main and SE guns, and all shells
             carried in the magazine.
* モード
  Mode:     1 - Data/Stuff!
                 Select for three more options:
                 a. Hunting Data - select to see the numbers of monsters
                                   defeated
                 b. Wanted - select to see the Bounty monsters defeated
                    (Shows the name, your level and bounty amount)
                 c. ゴールドチャイム (Gold Chime) - select to set.
                     You can set a target amount for gold and a chime will
                     ring when you meet the target.
             2 - Change message speed (1-5)
             3 - Switch battle animations off or on
             4 - Switch BGM off or on.


-------------------
3. Tank Menu Screen
-------------------
From the main menu select Strength [統計] and the third option. Even if you
don't yet have any tanks you can still view this page. When you have a number
of tanks, each command reveals the stats for all tanks, so you can easily
compare them, and each tank has a nifty picture on the upper part of the
screen.

装備
Equip:    Shows the tank's current equipment.

道具
Tools:    Shows items carried by that tank (such as the Dog System).

砲弾
Shells:   Shows shells carried by that tank. These are separate from the
          shells required by main and SE guns.

攻撃
Attack:   The tank's attack power.

守備
Defense:  The tank's defense power. This can be increased at a mod shop.

ダメージ
Damage:   This is where you can check up on any damaged parts. There are two
          types of damage: Yellow damage shows a partly broken part that can
          be repaired by the Mechanic using a Repair Kit. Red damage shows a
          totally broken part that costs more to repair and cannot be mended
          by the Mechanic unless he's reached Level 50.

主砲
Main Gun: The Main Gun of the tank, also called the Cannon.  These guns are
          powerful, but only make one attack at once, and they use up shells,
          which have to be restocked at a garage.

副砲
Sub Gun:  Also called Autoguns or Auxiliary guns. These guns have less power
          than the cannon, but have infinite ammunition, making them cheap!

S-E
SE Gun:   Special Effect guns.  These are guns with particular attacks, and
          they usually have only a few shells, but some of them can attack
          groups of enemies, or even all enemies at once. Ammunition has to be
          restocked and they are expensive to use.

シャシー
Chassis:  This shows the unique chassis of the named tank. The chassis
          determines how many guns the tank can have, and of what type.

Cユニット
C-Unit:   This is the control centre of the tank. The tank won't move if the C
          Unit is completely trashed by an enemy attack.

エンジン
Engine:   The engine powers the tank and determines the load that can be
          carried.

重量
Weight:   This shows the current weight of the tank, any spare capacity, and
          the maximum weight it can carry. (If a tank exceeds the maximum it
          won't move!)

装甲
Armour:   This shows the Armour Tiles (Shield Points) of the tank.
          These are the tank's protection, and can be destroyed when an enemy
          attacks, so they have to be replaced. You can also remove excess
          Armour Tiles if the tank has been overloaded.

トランク
Trunk:    Here you can check up on what items you have stored back at Riorado.


---------------------
4. Battle Menu Screen
---------------------
Most enemies will appear randomly, and the only exception to this is some of
the Wanted enemies whom you meet during an event. The battles are turn-based,
and you can take as long as you like to select your action. If your party are
all inside tanks, then they cannot suffer any damage, as the tank will be the
thing that gets damaged, not the person inside it! You can fight with someone
on foot and someone inside a tank, even if you start a battle with everyone
inside tanks, but if someone starts the battle on foot, even if a tank is
nearby on the world map, they cannot use that tank.

The Protect command allows a stronger ally (one in a tank, for example) to
protect a weaker one (particularly if they are on foot). To flee successfully
everyone must select the Flee command and it's usually successful on the first
attempt. If not, try again. When fighting on foot you can change equipment in
between turns to use a different weapon or replace a broken protector.

All Metal Max games can seem a little intimidating at first because you have a
huge world explore, allies and tanks to find and equip, and lots of freedom to
choose where to go and when. You're not given any direction, beyond a few
hints here and there, and it's really up to you how you proceed and how long
you take before you beat the final boss. In fact, you can finish the game
whenever you choose, carry on playing after the "official" ending, and do
things in any order. The only restriction is your ability to kill the enemies
that might block your way.

Finding and buying tanks and equipment can be expensive, but there is the
option to use rental tanks which already have weapons and engines! You never
have to pay up front as the rental places just take a portion of your earnings
from enemy gold. As well as gold, enemies drop items, equipment and even tank
parts (although not often) and you can find lots of things by searching inside
boxes and chests and even find things hidden on the world map using a Metal
Detector, or just with the "Examine" command. I'll tell you exactly where to
find everything!


--------
1. Tanks
--------
Tanks cannot enter areas with trees or climb mountains or stairs!

Tank Icons
A tank with all three gun types equipped will have each part named in this
order on the equipment screen:
1. Main Gun                  4. Auto Gun
2. SE Gun                    5. C Unit
3. Engine                    6. Chassis

Tank Weapons
Tanks have three basic weapon types and the best guns to use as much as
possible are the Auxiliary (Autoguns) because these have infinite ammunition
and cost nothing to keep firing. However, their fire power is lower than the
guns that consume ammunition. These are two types: main guns with cheap ammo
that target single enemies, and SE guns (Special Effect guns) that have the
most expensive ammunition but can be very powerful, and some of them target
all enemies.

Magazine Shells
You can also carry additional shells on a tank (sort of like grenades) which
have various status effects and are valuable additions to your arsenal. Each
magazine can have up to 128 shells although the tanks won't have any when
you acquire them. Magazine shells can only be fired if the tank has a Main
Gun.

Tank Weight
Each tank is unique with its own particular chassis that cannot be replaced.
This determines its overall capacity (for example, how many guns can be
equipped). A tank also needs an engine and C Unit, as well as guns, and all
these can be of any kind. Every tank part has a weight and if a tank is
overloaded it won't move and you have to remove parts or its special
shielding, called Amour Tiles, until it is at the correct weight. The lighter
a tank the faster it attacks!

Tank Modding
As well as finding and buying tank parts you can modify some of them to
increase defence. You can also increase the amount of shells in the magazine,
boost the load that the tank can carry by upgrading the engine, and open slots
(drill holes) on the chassis to equip more guns. You do this at a garage mod
shop and pay for it too. The better the tank, the more everything costs!

Eight Tanks
This chart shows the set-up for the chassis for each tank, with the default
defence and weight. Most tanks have one or two guns already equipped, but some
can have additional gun slots opened up so you can alter the arrangement. Even
if tanks have nothing equipped they have the capacity for guns, and that's
shown as +1 or +2, meaning that you can add one or two weapons of that
kind (although you will have to pay a mod shop to open the slots first).

The Buggy, Van and Armoured Car won't have any magazine capacity at all at
first and you have to pay a chassis mod shop to add this, for eight shells at
a time, and add a Main Gun slot, which is costly! Shells for the magazine can
only be fired if the tank is equipped with a Main Gun.

2. Characters And Equipment
---------------------------
Sometimes you cannot use tanks and have to fight on foot (and you can choose
to do this at any time when driving tanks). There are a range of different
weapons, some of which are specific to the members of the team as they have
particular strengths. The lead character, Hunter, whom you can name, is a tank
driver first and foremost and should use the best tank with the most powerful
weapons. The Mechanic (ロビン - Robin) uses wrenches and can mend tanks with a
Repair Kit. He's best used to heal allies and tanks during battles, and for
throwing items at enemies. If he reaches a high level (50) he can repair tank
parts that are completely broken. The Soldier (マッミコ - Machoko) excels at on
foot fighting and should be given the most powerful hand weapons. She has the
highest HP, and attack power and will be your damage dealer when fighting on
foot.

STATUS SCREEN
Hunter/Mechanic/Soldier (Class)  Male/Female (Gender)
せんとうレベル - Combat Level  (higher for Soldier)
しゅうりレベル - Repair Level  (higher for Mechanic)
うんてんレベル - Driving Level (higher for Hunter)
こうげきりょく - Strength (total reflects equipped weapon's attack power)
しゅびりょく   - Defence  (total reflects equipped armour)
ちから        - Power
ちりょく      - Intelligence
すばやさ      - Agility
たいりょく     - Stamina
EXP.         - Experience total
GOLD.        - Current amount

EQUIPMENT
Each character can carry up to 8 different pieces of equipment and equip 6
separate pieces.

* Weapon - some weapons can only be equipped by certain party members
* Head   - head gear
* Body   - body armour
* Arms   - hand armour, or gloves
* Feet   - boots
* Prtct  - Protector
  This is an additional piece of protective armour which will stop an initial
  attack from harming the character. It can be broken by a strong attack and
  then you will need to replace it with another protector.


-------------------
3. Special Features
-------------------
There are many sources of cash as well as places to spend it all!

Bounty Rewards
Most towns have a Hunter's Office where you go to collect rewards posted for
killing powerful outlaws.

Vending Machines
Each town and many dungeons contain vending machines where you can buy a vast
range of items and receive prizes for hitting a central red dot.

Bars, Drinks and Mini-Games
Most towns have a bar where you can buy a range of drinks for the team. These
are just for fun, as are the mini-games, although you'll win cash from the
latter.

Gifts
When you have more money you can buy various gifts at the Interiors Shops and
decorate Hunter's bedroom and living quarters.

Memory Centres
All towns (and a few other locations) have a Memory Centre where you talk to
someone standing in front of a computer screen and they save your game. Answer
Yes to make a save, and then No to stop playing, or Yes to carry on. When you
reload the game, select that named save to continue playing. You can also
start a second game, and delete the save. There is only room for 2 save files.
1. Load a save         3. Copy the save
2. Start a new game    4. Delete the save

Experience Machines
Some towns have a computer (it might be in the Hunter's Office or inside
a bar, garage or house) where you can see the amount of experience needed to
reach the next level for all characters.

Inns
Each Inn has different value rooms with different costs. The more you pay the
bigger the room! Inns also have a masseur who will give a massage to anyone
who is paralysed.

Metal Detection!
Using the "Examine" command you can find hidden treasure on the world map and
inside some dungeons. This is easier with a Mine or Metal Detector which scans
a wider area and flashes red on the correct spot. It also shows the location
of hidden mines.

Trunk Room
Only found in your home town garage. Here you can store important items that
you don't need just yet, or anything else you like. Items are stored in some
kind of order, with the same types of items grouped together.

Trunk Room Commands
* Deposit:   Select the first option to see a new menu.

4. Shops And Shopping
---------------------
There are a range of different types of shops and lots of them! Talk to the
person behind the counter and select the first option to buy something. (The
second option is to sell and the third is to not bother.) Any item bought will
go to the named character's/tank's inventory and you can only carry 8 items
for each party member. Equipment is stored on the Equip part of the menu
screen and again, each character can carry 8 pieces of equipment. Tanks can
also carry 8 tools which includes extra tile packs.

You will not be permitted to sell certain important items so there's no fear
of getting rid of something by mistake, and you are always given the option to
confirm the sale or purchase.

* Equipment Shop   - sells weapons and armour
* Tools Shop       - sells healing items and battle items
* Tank Parts Shop  - sells engines, C Units and tank guns
* Tank Tools Shop  - sells items and accessories for tanks

* Refill Station   - sells Armour Tiles and Gun shells
* Tank Rental      - rents tanks (cost = 50% of earnings)
* Interiors Shop   - sells decorative items and mini-games

SHOP COMMANDS:
* Buy      : Scroll the list of things on offer and select "Yes".
             People - When you select to buy equipment you'll be shown the
                      strength of the piece and you will also be shown who can

REFILL STATION COMMANDS
Most refill stations offer both SP and shell replenishment. SP is added when
you buy Armour Tiles and they cost 1 Gold for 10. You can add them to all
tanks at once or to one at time. Shells cost 5 Gold for 1 and refill Main Guns
only. SE Gun shells will cost a lot more than this so it's usually better to
select the individual tank and refill each gun as you choose, at least, if
Gold is in short supply.

-----------------
5. Wanted Enemies
-----------------
The Hunters' Office in most towns will give you details of the local
fugitives, or Wanted monsters.  You can also see posters of these enemies in
some bars and inns as well as in the Hunter's Office, and every Wanted monster
will net you a reward. You can collect this reward at any Hunter's Office
after you have defeated one of them, and you can also defeat them in any order
you like. This list shows the order in which they are listed on the enemies'
defeated screen, but only AFTER you have defeated them.

Some Wanted enemies are easy to find, even if their appearance is random,
but others can take a while before they appear, although this can vary a
lot from game to game, so I guess it is partly dependent on luck. "Event"
simply means that the fugitive will be visible and waiting for you.

Defeating a Wanted enemy does not get you much in the way of gold, but it will
reward you with a lot of experience points, and of course you can then collect
the bounty for killing them. If you encounter a strong enemy and cannot defeat
it, then run away (it will work, although maybe not on the first attempt) and
you'll live to fight them again another day. All the details are given in the
main text.

Dog System and Transfer centre locations.
These are arranged in order from south to north based on their location on the
world map, although you will reach Eden and Santa Poco before finding
Canabelle. The towns of Yuge and Hell's Gate West are not on the list.

==============================================================================
IV. HINTS AND TIPS ........................................................
==============================================================================

*   Please note that the main locations as listed in the Table of Contents are
    nearly all places that can be directly moved to using the item called the
    "Dog System" [ドッグシステム]. This is first available for sale when you
    reach Pobre Obre and is a Tank Tool. It is used by selecting TOOLS [ツール]
    and highlighting the tank, and then the name of the Tool to switch it ON.
    Then, you'll be shown the list of locations already found, and when more
    places are visited they are added to the list. Select one to move there
    directly. The Dog System can be used to instantly leave any dungeon.

*   Search for items in local dungeons before deciding what to buy. Always buy
    shells, and some healing and throwing tools from Vending Machines as you
    may win a prize.

*   If you buy things from Vending Machines you need some spare capacity or
    you will not be permitted to buy. Tank tiles and shells are added directly
    to the selected tank so you need to make sure you need them and won't
    exceed the weight.

*   The most useful shells to add to the chassis's magazine are Armour
    Piercing and Hollow Point, although you cannot buy the latter until much
    later in the game. Tanks that don't have any magazine capacity need a
    chassis mod shop to add it, in effect increasing the number of shells that
    can be carried.

*   Upgrade Sub guns as soon as possible and try to kill enemies just using
    these guns, or you could find that the cost of firing guns that use shells
    exceeds the gold won from defeated enemies!

*   Always have some space in the Equipment and Tools inventories for people
    and tanks so you can accept any enemy drops. Although the more valuable
    drops are infrequent, and most of them can be bought at shops, there are
    one or two things that are only found from enemies.

*   Store excess tank parts on a spare tank rather than use the Trunk room
    because it's quicker to access if you want to use the part on another
    tank.

*   To exit tanks quickly, select [乗降] - Drive/Alight and then the top command
    on the next menu and everyone in the party will leave their tanks. To
    re-enter, stand everyone on top of the tank you want them to drive and use
    that same command. However, you must have the tanks lined up for this to
    work. Otherwise choose a named character to enter or exit one tank.

*   Use the [調べる] Examine command when inside a tank to tow another one. You
    must drive directly on top of it for that to work. With a towed tank you
    can transfer tank parts and tools in between all your tanks, and use spare
    Armour Tile Packs directly from that tank.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When the game starts, choose the name for "Hunter", using only 4 letters, and
click on the message at the lower right of the naming screen to finish. The
game begins with a scene where an angry father wallops his good for nothing
son because he refuses to stay at home to learn how to become a reliable
mechanic. After spending the night on the garage floor you gain control of
Hunter, whose dream is to have adventures and drive tanks! There's a minor
drawback to this aspiration as there are no tanks to be seen. Not yet, anyway!

This is Hunter's home town and it has some unique features that you won't find
anywhere else: free healing, reviving if you die, and free tank repairs! But
there's no treasure to find except for [7 GOLD] inside the box in Hunter's
room. You can find random items inside the other bedroom, but you might not.
I found nothing at all for quite a while but eventually found the
[ねえさんのパンツ] - SISTER'S APRON item on a later revisit after completing
events in Audrey, and [おやじのパンツ] - DAD'S SHIRT in the same left drawer
after completing the events in Port Slum.

If you need to rest at any time just talk to Hunter's sister on the upper
floor and you'll automatically sleep, restoring full health. However, there
are a lot of people to talk to, inside the Inn, Bar, Dr. Mince's house and
around the place. Buy 4 Healing Capsules from the Vending Machine inside the
Hunter's office and check out the poster of the wanted outlaw. (Literally use
the "Check" command.) Talk to the girl at the left to save your game and stop
playing if you want. Access to the Transfer Center building to the right of
the Inn is blocked for now, and there are no tanks to be found anywhere. A
nice touch is that you can push a plant pot off the upper landing of the Inn
and you'll jump down after it to knock someone out, however I think that this
prevents that person from opening a Tank Rental place later on, although you
don't need it. (You can use the same short-cut to jump off the upper floor of
the garage.)

Inside the garage you'll find a number of useful services. There's a covered
parking place for your tanks, when you have some, and the machine at the left
of the tanks store will show how many experience points are required to reach
the next level. The person at the counter to the left will store excess things
in the "Trunk" room and the one at the right sells tank gun shells and Armour
Tiles. The Vending Machine sells the same things as the one in the Office.
Talk to "Dad", the man in blue, who's always waiting at the right side of the
garage in between the boxes and keep answering Yes (you're going to return
home and give up your Hunter life) and the game will end! You can also offer
him money to prove you're not a worthless wanderer. Once you have a tank dad
will repair any broken tank part for free: Select the first option, and then
No, when he asks for money to repair a damaged part. (You will only see the
new option if there is a part that needs mending!)

Leave town and wander around a bit fighting the random enemies until you've
levelled up to Level 4 and can afford to buy the Shotgun. This is easy enough
as you can stay close to town and return home to heal up if you get damaged
too much. Default equipment is the Pingpong Shot and Denim Overalls and you
don't yet have enough money to change these. The Ants appear in groups of up
to four and are easy enough to defeat. The Polytank is tougher and will damage
you with its flame thrower attack, but it is usually alone. By the way, you
can walk over the small trees but not the larger round ones. If you run into
the snail at lower levels it is tough to damage with your default weapon. I
used a Rocket Firework on it in the end! It's probably wise to run away
although that doesn't always work. (Select the bottom right command and then
the second option.)

Once Hunter has reached Level 4 and you have bought the Shotgun it's time to
enter the cave at the south east of town. (You can find a free Shotgun inside
the North Cave but it's a bit risky getting there and back safely on foot.)
Enter the hole in the ground and go down the ramp to the first level. Although
you can find a box by walking up the right side of the level there's nothing
inside it so don't bother. Make your way to the top left of the cave by
walking left, over the rock and then, going up and left, to find a wooden box
containing a [かいふくカプセル] - HEALING CAPSULE x1. (Use the 調べる - Examine
command on all boxes.) There's another empty box at the south side of the cave
and nothing else on this level so just head down the left ramp.

On the second level you'll run into a green caterpillar type enemy that fires
a gun and a more powerful green enemy (the Cannon Hopper) that also uses a gun
and hurts you for around 20 HP at Level 4. This is why you needed that
Shotgun! Walk up the cave through the narrow gap to find a box containing
[57G]. There's nothing else to find so walk all the way to the eastern wall
and go down. Follow the path left to end up inside a room with a table and a
couple of boxes. As soon as you move to the left a large red dog will appear,
blocking the way. Check the second box to obtain [103 G] and open the first
one if you have enough capacity for another item as it contains
[ふるびたコイン] - FORTUNE COIN. Talk to the dog and answer YES [はい] or
NO [いいえ]. "Yes" starts a battle!

| Drops       | 32 gold            |

o----------------------------------o

Even at Level 5 one Launcher Shell.attack from the pooch will hurt you for
nearly 50 HP and you'll only hit it for a small amount. Use a Healing Capsule
[かいふくカプセル] to restore HP if you wish but on the second turn a cute pink
tank will appear and be the target instead. It will soon make mincemeat of the
enemy so you have nothing to worry about.

After the battle answer  YES [はい] and the driver will investigate the tank in
the cave and leave in his pink one. Check the upper box to find a
[めいさいふく] - CAMOUFLAGE FATIGUES, better armour for Hunter. Examine the
console at the right of the cavern near the tank. Move the cursor to select
"OPEN" and that unblocks the exit for the tank.

o---------o----------------o

Stand on top of the tank and choose 乗降 (Get on/off tank) and the text above
Hunter's name to enter the vehicle. You'll get a new screen showing the green
tank and allowing you to name it. I called mine Tank 1, but it's actually a
[モスキート] - MOSQUITO. Click the lower right command to finish and claim your
first tank! It has a Main Gun equipped with 32 shells and you'll soon use
these up if you fight too many battles!. It also only has 30 Armour tiles so
it is vulnerable to damage if you engage more powerful enemies than the ones
in the cave. Return to town and talk to the person at the right of the counter
in the garage and they will refill your ammunintion.

ii. 北の洞窟 : Northern Cave [Wanted 1]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LOCATION
West from Riorado, then north to the Barrier and before reaching it, turn
east. Drive east and then south to find the cave entrance.

ENEMIES
Pyro Monkey, Bomb Turtle, Wandering Polytank, Cannon Hopper, Enormous Ant,
Murderous Amoeba, Meteor Snail

TREASURE
B1:     [てりゅうだん] - Hand Grenade
        [75G]
        [タイルパック40] - 40-Tile Pack
B2:     [ショットガン] - Shotgun
B3:     [7ミリきかんほう] - 7 mm Cannon

SPECIAL
WANTED 1: [サルモネラいっか] - SALMONELLA CLAN
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You could attempt to kill the Salmonella Clan once you have a tank, or leave
it until you have two of them and another ally, which is advisable! Drive west
from Riorado and then north and turn east before reaching the Barrier house.
Drive south and you'll spot a cave opening to the west, facing south.

Enter the first level and make your way left and down the ramp. On the next
floor, follow the arrows that take you up a narrow path and then right, until
you reach the second ramp down. (You can drive over the tiles that show a
skeleton.) Drive straight up this cave and you'll spot a tantalizing wooden
box at the left where the path divides. If you attempt to reach it by going
left you'll fall through a hidden hole in the ground just in front of it. But
that's not a bad idea because you land in the third floor where you'll soon
find the wanted monsters! Just drive up this cave towards the exit ramp at the
top right, and that should prompt a random encounter with them.

o----------------------------------------------------o
| W A N T E D 1 : SALMONELLA CLAN  (Reward: 1,000G)  |

o----------------------------------------------------o

There are four of them and they use flame attacks which will damage your
tanks. You need to make sure both tanks have well over 100 SP to be on the
safe side. Hunter's Main gun will cause around 35 damage to each of them (with
him at Level 6) and you don't have much choice about the Mechanic's guns as he
has to use the Autogun on the rented tank. At level 4 for him that does about
12 HP damage to them. There are 2 pairs of them so target one pair at a time.

After the battle, climb the ramp to the floor where you fell and drive down
the left of the cavern to get to the wooden box. Open it from the left side so
you don't fall back down and acquire the [7ミリきかんほう] - 7 MM CANNON. You
might have to drop some Armour Tiles  to be able to move! This is an Autogun
which makes winning battles a much cheaper affair: if you can work out how the
hell to equip the gun... Go to the main menu and choose 装備 [Equip] and then
click on the name of your tank. You'll see that the new gun has been added to
the tank's equipment list but it's not highlighted with a red icon. Click on
it to add it to your active equipment and that's it. Now you can select the
Autogun during battles and save your main gun for tougher fights. You might
need it for the turtle tank type enemies.

Drive back around to the right of the cave and down towards the ramp up to the
next floor. This time, drive south, following the arrows back towards the ramp
but keep going and turn left to find another ramp leading up. This takes you
to a ledge on B1 with a box containing  [タイルパック40] - 40 TILE PACK. This
item will go directly to the first tank's Tank Tools menu and can be used from
there to add SP to any tank. (Select 道具 (Tools) and then the Mosquito to open
the Tools screen.) Return to B2 and drive up the other ramp to the main floor.
Head left and down into a cave where you have to leave your tanks and walk
over some stones to reach another wooden box. Examine it to obtain one
[てりゅうだん] - HAND GRENADE.

Drive all the way to the east wall of the cave and leave your tanks again to
cross some stones. Keep walking down the cave to find some steps leading down
to the lower floor. Walk up and left and you'll find another wooden box. Open
it to obtain a [ショットガン] - SHOTGUN. (You'll have noticed that equipment
items are sent automatically to the equipment screen and not the item one.)
Give this to the Mechanic and equip it. Return to your tanks and drive left,
back towards the ramps. Carry down a little and go right to find the last
treasure [78G] inside a wooden box. That's everything so now you can leave
this place and collect the reward for killing the wanted enemy!

Visit a Hunter's Office and talk to the man behind the counter. Select the
second option to tell him you are here for the reward. Say YES [はい] you want
the money! You'll know you've got it because the gold is added to your cash
immediately, and the bounty poster will change and show a big red stamp across
it. One down!

Use the Transporter back to Riorado.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Drive east and north a short distance and you'll see an area of brown ground
that the tank cannot enter. This is a kind of bog but Hunter can walk over it
with no problems. Park the tank at the south side of this large area where you
can see a wooden hut representing the village, and walk over the smaller trees
to reach Negi (Onion). The Inn only has cheap rooms. Enter the shop and you'll
find a girl who will save your game and a Tools Shop. Climb the stairs to find
the stairs down to the three people sitting at the table if you wish to talk
to them. Open the three wooden boxes on the upper floor to find a
[ロケットはなび] - FIREWORKS ROCKET in the first one, [ぢかたび] - WORK CLOGS
and {ぐんて] - ARMY GLOVES in the other two. Remember that these will go to
the Equipment menu if you wish to equip them.

There are two wooden buildings at the west side of the town. Enter the right
one and go down the stairs where you'll find a trasporter device. Walk to the
front of the device and examine the dark computer at the right. Say YES [はい]
and you'll be shown some possible locations: in fact the only two at the
moment are Riorado [リオラド] and Negi [ネギ]. Click on the name and scroll
through the rest of the text. Then, walk up the steps to stand above the
central round thing and you'll be transported to a similar room back home.
Leave by the door and you'll be met by the man that was blocking it before.
He's surprised to see you... and moves aside. You can return to Negi through
the transporter and now the route back to Riorado is open for the rest of the
game.

Go inside the lower house and open the two wooden boxes to find [7G] and a
[かいふくカプセル] - HEALING CAPSULE. Talk to the young woman and the other
people to find that she has lost her wedding ring. We'll try and help her with
that and it's pretty simple. Leave the house and talk to the man next to the
field. Yes, we're going to dig over his potato patch. Stand in the bottom
right corner of the field and choose to [調べる] - Examine the ground. You'll
see the option YES [はい] or NO [いいえ] and choose Yes to search. You should
find the [けっこんゆびわ] - WEDDING RING at this spot. If not, then do the same
thing on the rest of the field. You might find other random things too!

Return to the woman and hand over the ring (just talk to her and it occurs
automatically) and then you'll hear a reassuring triumphal tune. Check the
items and you have something new. Yes, it's the [ルビーのレンズ] - RUBY LENS.
This is one of four lenses needed to make the best weapon in the game.

By the way I've called this place Negi because I'm used to that name from
Metal Max Returns, although a more literal translation is "Green Onion"...

Free Gold!
There's a hidden stock of Gold on the world map north of Negi which can be
found now, even though you don't yet have a Metal Detector. If you can't find
it now, leave it until later because the enemies are pretty strong for the
pair of you fighting on foot. Walk north from Negi until you see some
patches of tarmac road. Starting from green square south of the cross section
[+], walk west three steps to reach another bit of road. From here, take four
steps left and one down and Examine the ground to find [1931 GOLD].

there are two vending machines accessible from your tanks. The left one allows
you to buy tile packs on the run so to speak and they will be added directly
to the tank's SP when you buy them. The right one sells shells although most
of the slots are sold out you can restock the main gun. Inside you'll find a
bar with two cheap drinks to cheer you up and a cheap inn. Apart from another

SPECIAL
[ドッグシステム] - Dog System for sale! School.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From Negi, drive east keeping the mountains and trees to your south, and then
drive due south down a more or less straight white road until you see a town.
with a fence around part of it. This is probably the biggest town in the game
and there are many people to talk to (if you can understand what they say...)
but only one item to find.

Enter the large garage and talk to the man at the left counter to replenish
your gun ammo and Armour Tiles. After saying you want to buy (the first
option), there is a new screen. Choose the first option to add Ammunition and
the second option to add Armour Tiles. (Tiles cost 1G for 10 so it's cheap
enough, but wait until you've decided what new tank parts to buy before adding
Armour Tiles .) The mechanic behind the box will repair any damaged tank parts
once for you. The other counter is a Tool shop. Scroll down to see the full
list of what's on offer. Don't buy Tile Packs or tank equipment if your SP is
at the maximum because your tank won't be able to move and it will be a waste
of money! Remember that any tile packs bought from a vending machine or shop
will be added to your tank immediately.

There are two more garages to the right side of the town. The left one is
where you can buy some new tank equipment. You'll see the details of each part
at the top left corner of the screen as you scroll through them all. I'd
advise buying the better engine as soon as you can afford it! Talk to the
person in blue at the right to see the Tank Tools for sale and buy the
[ドッグシステム].- DOG SYSTEM  This wonderful Tank Tool will allow you to
instantly move between any locations you've already visited AND to instantly
leave a dungeon or building. But only when you're driving a tank. Choose
[道具] - Tools from the main menu, and select the tank and then choose the
[ドッグシステム] - Dog System. Pick the top option to turn the Tank Tool ON.
You will be shown a list of towns that you can move to. Pick one, and your
party will be deposited outside the location.

The other garage rents out tanks. Talk to the man at the middle counter to
hire one and the man at the right to return a rented tank. Be warned that they
start out with 0 SP and you'll need to add some Armour Tiles before using one
in the field or it will get damaged and eject the driver, and you'll be left
without a tank as it will automatically return to the rental shop. The counter
to the right refills shells for the Main gun (and SE guns when you have them).
Pick the first option to buy and the first option again on the next menu
screen. Select a tank and you'll see your guns listed with the amount of
shells. Scroll the number to buy as many as you wish. Main gun shells cost 5G
each. Choose the second option to see the specialist shells for sale.

There's a good equipment store and a second Tools shop in the same building,
although the Tools shop sells the same stuff as the one inside that first
garage. Enter the bar on the south side of town and you'll notice a computer
screen at the left. This is the mini-game *FLOG RACE* where you can bet on
frogs to win a race. Pay 50G up front and select one of three frogs to win at
the odds shown. To the right of the games machine is a jukebox with four new
tunes added to it. Talk to the man playing the other games machine at the
right and he'll move away allowing you to play a slightly different version.
This one requires a bet of 100G.

The building with no marker near the left entrance is the Hunter's Office.
Walk around to the back of the counter where you'll find a machine that tells
you the experience needed to reach the next level. There are three wanted
posters. and the new one is for a green monster called
DOS PIRANHAS [ドス・ピラニアス] with a reward of 3,000G. The other unmarked
house on the main street is an Interiors Shop where you can buy decorative
items for your room. Try it out with the cheapest item and buy the poster. Say
Yes and they will deliver it to your home. Return there and you'll find it
displayed on the back wall of Hunter's bedroom (though there's no close up
view). It's actually quite cute to see all the stuff you can accumulate!

Climb up the steps to enter the large house and go upstairs. There's another
"experience counter" machine inside the Mechanic's bedroom and a wooden box.
Open it to find a [しゅうりキット] - REPAIR KIT.

There's just one place left to visit: the schoolhouse in the lower right
corner of town. Find the girl in the back room and talk to her. Offer money to
support the school and they will build a statue in your honour! It's quite a
sweet touch, but not necessary. You have to donate more than 530G it seems,
but I'm not going to waste gold on this now.

Before you leave town for pastures new I'd suggest buying the better Main Gun
at the tank shop and the Chonov engine that will allow you to carry heavier
equipment. Buy the engine first and equip it and sell off the
[ビートル] - Beetle for 100G. You can also sell the 45mm Main Gun for 220G
and the 7mm Sub Gun for 100G if you buy the better 9mm gun. Always a good plan
to have the very best tank equipment you can afford. Stock up on Tank Tiles
and these are added to the tank's Tools list without any weight penalty. Check
that both tanks have a good amount of SP, although it doesn't need to be at
the maximum unless you are planning to kill the wanted monster, in which case
you'll need all the SP you can get! Also, stock up on Blaze Bottles for the
Mechanic and you can throw these at some enemies.

The shell shop is at the right of the rental garage. Check the second option
to be shown the two kinds of shells for sale. You can buy the High Explosive
shells from the vending machine if you want to try these out in the battle on
the bridge (I forgot to do that but it might be a good idea instead of using
the Blaze bottles). Buy as many Armour Piercing Shells as you can equip for
the Mosquito for the battle with the Big Cannon.

i. ウリウじいさんのいえ : Old Man Ulie's House
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
LOCATION
This house is situated just a short drive to the south west of Pobre Obre.

TREASURE
None

SPECIAL
Find your Mechanic ally here.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

After picking up a second tank from the rental place in Pobre Obre, leave town
by the west exit and drive a little further down the road to the visible
house. If you want to play the game with just Hunter then don't visit here
because you don't have an option about the mechanic joining you! You don't
have to visit Pobre Obre first, though if you do you can find out more about
this young man by talking to the folks inside the mansion. (He's the son of
the rich people.)

Get out of your tank and enter the house, and as soon as you walk right
someone will rush past and start playing with your tank! Talk to the old man
inside the tent in the courtyard and answer Yes and go back outside to find
your tank has disappeared! It doesn't matter though. Just return to Pobre Obre
and go back to the hut and you'll find your tank has been returned. Talk to
the driver (just face the tank and press Talk) and answer Yes [はい], twice and
you'll get your mechanic (ロビン - Robin). You MUST accept him or you won't get
your tank back!

He won't enter the rented tank until you make him. Go to the command [乗降] to
drive/get it in the tank and choose his name and the tank and he'll enter it.
If you want to get your Mosquito back then press the "drive" command and then
choose the top option for both of you to exit the tanks. Do the same again
while standing on top of the tanks (with Hunter on top of the Mosquito) and
you'll both enter your tanks. Drive off.

You can give items to the Mechanic by choosing the second option under the
[道具] - Tools command and pass over a selected item to him. Mechanic joins
you at Level 1 and the next thing to do is to level him up a bit and give him
some better equipment. (He doesn't have a weapon.) It's a good time to go
after your first outlaw in the Northern Cave where you'll also find another
Shotgun, or explore the area around Negi, and find the hidden cottages! (Just
one or two battles with you both in tanks will level him up fast.)


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ii. Secret Cottage
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LOCATION
West of Ulie's House. South from Negi.

TREASURE
World Map: [SMGウージー] - SMG Uzi gun (hidden by tree)

SPECIAL
Free Healing.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

There are two routes to this hidden cottage. You can drive south west from
Negi keeping close to the western mountains and cross some small bushes
heading south east. Get out of your tanks to cross the slightly bigger trees
and reach the cottage on foot. Alternatively, drive west from Ulie's house and
then get out of your tanks and walk through the trees and up into the area
between the mountains, going north.  There is a single cottage, though in fact
this is a small community with a house, barn and graveyard.

Talk to the person wandering outside and answer YES [はい] and you'll wake up
inside a small room having rested and restored HP for free. You can talk to
the old couple at the graveyard but that's it. However, there is a very good
weapon hidden near here and it's worth finding.

Leave the settlement and walk east and up the narrow tree-filled path, heading
to the north east. Stop at the first large tree where there's a group of three
of them. Turn to face east and use the EXAMINE [調べる] command and you'll find
the [SMGウージー] - SMG UZI gun. This is a great weapon for this stage of the
game because it has attack power of +48 AND it targets groups of enemies.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
iii. ヨシダ生命科学研究所 : Yoshida Institute for Life Sciences (Exterior)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LOCATION
Northeast from Pobre Obre half surrounded with water.

ENEMIES
Gunbird, Pickaxe Bird, Drill Worm, Trader Killer, Meteor Snail (red)

TREASURE
None.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Drive east from Pobre Obre as far as you can go and head north. Eventually
you'll hit the shoreline and can go no further. Drive east, crossing some low
green shrubs until you reach more water. Then, drive south and you'll arrive
at a small grey building that tanks cannot enter. Although you can walk all
the way around the fence you cannot get inside as the gates are locked.
However, you can see that there is a Vending Machine inside and some stairs
down. You'll find another way inside here later in the game. Watch out for the
flying bird enemies as they can do quite a bit of damage and some of them will
call up Hippoguns if you let them live!


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
iv. 海岸の工場 : Shoreside Factory ] [Tank 2, Wanted 2]

TREASURE

SPECIAL
WANTED 2 : [ドス・ピラニアス] - DOS PIRANHAS
TANK 2   : [ ワイルド バギー ] - WILD BUGGY
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From Pobre Obre drive due east and you'll see a broken railway bridge leading
over the water. Drive across and be ready for some much harder battles. You
might not run into the Wanted outlaw on your first crossing but keep driving
up and down the bridge and eventually he'll turn up, usually in the middle of
the bridge. The other issue is that he might run away close to the start of
the battle, which is frustrating if you've come here all tanked up for a
fight!

This is a tough fight as Dos Piranhas is accompanied by FIVE (yes, five)
frogmen allies. Try this battle with both at Level 10 or so and with the
better equipment on the Mosquito. Alternatively you can escape if you meet the
enemies and wait until you've found a second tank from the Shoreside Factory.

The allies are protecting their boss and they are in a group of three and a
group of two. Attack the smaller group first using the Main gun interspersed
with the Autogun because you'll need a fair number of shells to destroy the
boss. Keep plugging away at the five frogmen because they will heal the boss
if you don't kill them all! He will also heal himself when he's the last one
left standing, and he'll heal twice on his turn if he's badly damaged so you
really need both allies to be functional at this point. The boss's attacks do
around 35-40 SP damage and the cohorts a lot less, maybe around 5 SP each, but
when all of them are firing at you that's still quite a lot! The main problem
is to prevent the rental tank from getting destroyed and using up all your
shells before defeating the boss. If that happens then retreat and try again
when you have found a tank for the Mechanic. (Retreating might not work the
first time, but try again until it does.)

One very effective strategy is to throw Blaze Bottles at both groups with the
mechanic whilst protecting him with your tank. Then, put him back inside his
tank for the remainder of the battle. The Blaze bottle will continually damage
the enemies causing 18 HP hurt for each round, and this can be a good way to
save on ammunition. Try and kill off the Frogmen quickly so they cannot heal
the boss or each other! It's probably best to use the Dog System to return to
Pobre Obre and heal up and re-stock your tanks before setting out again for
the Shoreside Factory.


You'll find the factory at the right side of the tarmac pier area and can
drive directly inside. You'll be met with new enemies that often don't do much
as they are surveillance cameras. You'll also lose the rented tank when you
enter, but keep the Mosquito. Kill the first set of four enemies and move
forwards. The man waiting in the room turns on a switch and climbs some
steps onto a moving conveyor belt. Leave the room at the left and drive up to
two vending machines if you need some replenishment.

If you stay inside the tank and attempt to go through the other openings on
this floor you'll run into more security. One of the cameras is red and it can
cause paralysis  Exit your tank and climb up to the moving belt. It drops you
off onto some land at the right side of the building. Walk up and through the
flower beds and up the stairs. On the next floor take the stairs again to the
top floor where you'll find a room carpeted in pink with more pots of flowers.
You'll also see something more interesting than flowers! Yes, there's a tank
just sitting there. (If you walked down the lower floor you could climb the
stairs to approach the tank but you'll be blocked by two men so don't bother.)

Walk up to speak to the man on the balcony with red flowers and answer YES
[はい]. Seriously, that's all there is to it! Go back down stairs and take the
stairs at the south up to the tank room. Now the men will stand aside allowing
you to claim the tank. Name it as you wish although it's default chassis name
is the [ ワイルド バギー ] - WILD BUGGY. At the moment it has 40 Armour Tiles
and one Autogun equipped. Although it can take an SE gun it cannot equip a
Main Gun until you find somewhere to open the slot for this gun, which won't
be for a while.

Drive down the room and through the gap in the south wall so you fall down to
the lower floor. Drive left and up the side of the building to reach a large
black hole in the floor. Drop down here and you're back at the Vending
Machines! Walk and drive back inside the building to pick up your other tank
where you left it next to the conveyor belt, and exit the building. Give this
new tank to the Mechanic so Hunter keeps the one that has the Main gun.
You'll make money faster now you don't have to use a rented tank.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
v.  ビックキャノン : Big Cannon
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LOCATION
North east from Negi, and then west past the explosions.

ENEMIES
There are no other enemies on the peninsula.

TREASURE
None
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Drive north east from Negi (or directly north from Pobre Obre) and follow the
broken road over a narrow bridge, and then drive west. As soon as you enter
the sandy ground there will be explosions although there are no enemies in
this area. It's very hard to avoid getting hit and the explosions will take
off all SP. When you reach the small bridge leading to the cannon, stop! Check
SP, using Armour Tiles to repair the damage, and make sure that Hunter is
driving the Mosquito and Mechanic the Buggy. DON'T use your main gun or the
shells on the way there. Run away from any battles that might need more
powerful weapons than the autoguns.

You have to defeat these two Big Cannon in order to progress. Be very careful
on the approach as the explosions can remove ALL SP, and you need to carry
some armour plates for repairs before facing the Cannons. If you elect to use
a Rental Tank it is likely to lose its SP early on in the battle and then it
will simply remove itself and your mechanic will be left without a tank. You
need the Buggy instead, although it cannot be equipped with a Main Gun and
there is no SE gun to buy at this stage, and you cannot modify anything, so
your options are a bit limited.

There's a way around this problem of being shelled on the way to the battle.
Rent a tank and have one person drive that tank so it's the one in the lead
and gets damaged if you cannot avoid the mines. When you reach the cannon,
transfer out of this tank and use your two best tanks, the Buggy and the
Mosquito. DO NOT use a rented tank for the actual battle as it will soon be
destroyed and your driver left exposed. You can also load up the rental with
spare packs of Armour tiles and use these to repair your other two tanks. If
you need extra cash for all this then fight around the northeast area of the
world map where you'll find those golden ants that give 210 Gold. I found them
most easily between the lake surrounded with dead trees and the green shrubs
to the east leading to the Life Sciences place.

Make sure Hunter is in the Mosquito as he has the better attack power and
driving skill. Equip that tank with the Chonov Engine and the 55mm Main Gun.
Give the Mechanic the best Autogun, which at this stage is the Gatling Gun.
Improve the Buggy's engine as well and that allows you to pile on more Armour
Tiles giving it better protection. Buy the Boomerang Wrench in Pobre Obre and
give this to the Mechanic. Stock up the Mosquito with Armour Piercing shells
bought in Pobre Obre. Make sure you have lots of spare Armour Tiles to repair
damage before the battle starts. I bought 8 sets of 40 Tiles and could have
done with more than that!

This can be a tricky battle, simply because of the restrictions on what
equipment you can buy and equip. You need both characters to be at least Level
10 to have any chance of success and higher would be better. I did it at Level
11 and they both levelled up to 12 after the battle.

Try and attack the cannon with the mechanic out of his tank wielding the
Boomerang Wrench and that might  disable the enemy. After he's had a couple of
turns (being protected by Hunter) put him back in the tank and start using the
Armour Piercing shells with Hunter. Hopefully they will disable the cannon.
for a turn or two. Then attack with the main gun and autogun with mechanic.
Each attack by the cannon will hurt for 50 SP of damage and they get two turns
each so that's a LOT of damage. However they malfunction from time to time and
with your armour piercing shells you'll prevent some of their more damaging
attacks. Just keep going interspersing shells and the main gun and ignore the
damage to your tanks.

After the battle use the Dog System to go back to Leorad for free repairs to
any damaged tank parts, (talk to Dad and select the first option) and
replenish your SP which will be at minus nothing by now! Then, use the Dog
System to return to Negi and this time you can carry on over the Big Cannon
place to the west. Sadly, there are no new tank parts to find but there is a
secret place nearby.

Stop just before the place where the Big Cannons stood, and use the Examine
command on the sandy square of ground that is bordered with three trees.
Answer [はい] - YES  and a hole opens. You can drive down a ramp in your tanks
to find a conveyor belt and a platform bordered with two computers. You can't
do anything here and there are no enemies, but it's nice to know there are
secret underground places. You will find more of them soon enough, and come
back here a lot later on...

The next destination is another town, but there are a couple of other places
on the way, although there is nothing to find or buy. Drive northeast from the
Big Cannon area following the only route available, bordered by mountains and
water, until you spot a grey house. You can enter and chat to an old couple
but there's nothing to find. Carry on heading south now and then east again.
You'll see a small hut but if you enter the compound you are met by three
silent figures who block access. There's nothing else to do but carry on
driving north until you reach Audrey. You're also likely to run into Acid Ants
who will damage your tanks making progress jerky and slow. You need Alkali Wax
[アルカリワックス], bought at the tank tools shop in Pobre Obre or Audrey, to
heal this bad status effect.

You'll see a right-angled corner of an old road just north from the hut.
Follow the road going north and you'll discover a broken down looking town,
comprising three separate grey buildings. The west building is not accessible
for tanks and contains the town boss (not in the battle sense!). The east one
has the garage with all the services you'll need for your tanks. The north
building has no tank access either, but contains an Inn, and a bar.

Shell Shop, Tank Rental, Memory Centre, Hunter Office, Tank Parts, Tank Tools
Shop.

The first counter with a blue clothed person is the Tank Tools shop. Stock up
on a couple of Alkali Wax items and the expensive tools when you can afford
them. The first person in red behind the wooden box sells tank parts and you
could buy the ATM Missile SE gun for the Buggy. If you haven't yet claimed the
bounty for killing a Wanted enemy you can claim it at the next counter, which
is the Hunter's Office. You'll also find the girl who saves your game on this
floor. Drive down to the basement and the first man at the right will repair
your tanks. The top left man in blue will add shells to your main gun if you
select the first option and sells special shells if you choose the second
option. The top right man in red runs the refill station replenishing SP
tiles. There are also two Vending Machines at the left.

Continue down the next ramp where you'll find a modification mechanic at the
right of the floor. Talk to the man at the back of garage at the left of the
broken machine and he'll boost the load of your engine. Cost 490G to increase
the Chonov to the next grade and boost the load by 3 tons. Pay another 390 to
increase the load again and that changes the engine name to the [チヨノフTS] -
Chonov TS. This is a good idea as you'll gain capacity for heavier weapons and
more Armour Tiles. Talk to the girl at the right behind the counter and she
rents out tanks. There's a choice of two, but if you put the soldier inside a
tank and keep the Mechanic on foot you could manage without a third tank for a
while.

Back on the ground floor, leave your tanks at the stairs and ascend to the
upper floor. Here, you'll find two wooden boxes in the right side room.
Examine them both and the left one contains [マヒノン] - PARA-NON, and the other
has a [しょうかき] - FIRE EXTINGUISHER.


---------------------
2. Town Boss Building
---------------------
Equipment Store, Tools Store

Enter the left building and say Yes to the man guarding the right hallway. Go
upstairs and you'll find a man called Caesar (the boss of the town), flanked
by two girls. The girl at the right will buy things from you, but the prices
are less as this is the black market. I think you have to talk to these people
to make sure that an item appears in Port Slum. You can climb the second set
of stairs to the the third floor and fall off any of the edges of the floor
but that just deposits you back on the second floor, so there's not much
point. Jump off the edge of the floor on the second floor and it's a short cut
back to the ground floor next to where you left your tanks.

Back on the ground floor, walk up and left to access the two shops at the left
counter. Buy the better headgear and armour for them both and for the first
time you get the chance to buy a protector. This increases defence by 30
points but it can be broken. When that happens replace it with a spare one.
(In MMR you could exchange a number of scrapped protectors for better ones,
but that service doens't exist in Metal Max.) Buy the SMG Uzi if you didn't
find the free one. You should also buy the Mine Detector but I'll explain how
that works when you're ready to leave Audrey. For now, equip everything new
and it's time to enter the third building.


-----------------------
3. Bar and Inn Building
-----------------------
Inn (10G), Bar (Juke Box), Transfer Centre

Save your game before entering this building as there's a battle to fight!
Talk to the man at the counter to stay at the Inn and then head down to the
bar. You can talk to the people sitting at the tables but you'll notice
someone with red hair sitting at the bar flanked by 6 identical blue haired
guys. The lower door leads to a transport machine. Check your health and
equipment before talking to the red haired person. Answer Yes both times and a
battle will start with SEVEN enemies! But you have red hair on your side!
You must have more HP than her or she won't talk to you. At level 12 you'll be
fine.

o-------------------------------------o
| Delinquents x7          Bar, Audrey |
|-------------------------------------|
| Drops       | 3 gold                |
| Experience  | 3                     |
| Attacks     | Weak attack           |
o-------------------------------------o-

Use the items that your new ally carries as these are fire bottles, and attack
with the SMG to spray them all with bullets. Have the mechanic use attack
items and heal up damage, or just fire with another SMG if you bought an extra
one or use the Shotgun if not. (Remember that you can change equipment during
battles if you wish.) After beating them you'll be thrown out of the bar by a
familiar figure, but you'll find yourself back there. After a short scene the
girl is left slammed against the wall. Talk to her and say YES and she'll join
the team!  (マッミコ - Machoko).is at Level 5 but if you check her stats you'll
see she already has attack power to rival your mechanic and her HP will
increase by much more than your other two team members. Time to find her a
tank! You'll need to level her up quite a bit and obtain better equipment
before going after the next tank near Rocco, as it requires beating a Wanted
enemy on foot.

Buy the Gas mask item for at least two of the team and you can use this item
when facing enemies that use sleep attacks. Buy the Mine Detector so you can
search for hidden things on the world map. Use it directly from the Tools menu
of any character and you'll see a blue square circle your party as the device
scans the area for anything hidden! If it find something it will flash red and
make a small beeping sound. You can use it as often as you like and inside
dungeons as well as on the world map.

Access to the spring is open after visiting Audrey and talking to the people
there. You'll find a building that you can enter with your tanks and two
tents. Inside the building are three Vending Machines and a Flog Race game
machine that requires 150G to enter! (If you use save states it's a good
source of cash, although the races don't repeat exactly the same every time.)
The man behind the counter offers two expensive decorative items for sale,
including a mini-game and upstairs you'll find a massage man. You can enter
both tents with tanks and the first sells tank parts.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LOCATION
Drive south from Audrey and then east and you will find an area of rocks and
jetties, situated above the water. It's also due east from Isaac Spring.

ENEMIES
World Map: Gunboat, Wandering Polytank, Burner Hopper, 85mm Mobile Artillery,
           Pickaxe Bird, Sniper Dog.
Port Slum: Sniper Dog, Magnetto, Frogmen, Gunboat

TREASURE
See each building for details.
Abrams Tank : Main Gun : [160ミリアモルフ] - 160mm Spark
            : Sub Gun  : [ガトリングほう] - Gatling
            : Engine   : [シルフィード] - Silpheed
            : C Unit   : [ウォズニアクII] - Wozniak II

SPECIAL
Find the Lock Hacker here!
TANK 3: [エイブラムス] - ABRAMS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You'll meet much larger groups of enemies on the world map, such as 4 Sniper
dogs and 2 Kiwi droppers all at once so you'll need the best weapons to deal
with them. Although you cannot cross the large rocks with tanks, you CAN walk
over them to reach the buildings.

This place is important for a number of reasons. You can buy a tank, find the
Lock Hacker tool that opens locked doors, and buy Healing Drinks (better
healing items). Wait until you have your third ally before going here and
you'll need spare protectors, neutralizing cream to heal acid/poison status
and plenty of healing items. You MUST have a [ガスマスク] - Gas Mask, bought in
Audrey and I'd also suggest buying an SMG Gun for the Soldier.


----------------
1. East Building
----------------
Enemies : Crab Gun, (can't defeat with weak weapons) Wandering Polytank,
          Enormous Ant, Sniper Dog.
Treasure: [アパートのかぎ] Apartment Key,
          [ロックハッカー ] - Lock Hacker

If you run into the Crab Gun and can't defeat it, just escape from the battle.
Other than that the enemies are easy in this building. There's nothing to find
on first floor, although there's a wardrobe at the back of the second room
which contains... nothing. Go straight up the stairs on the right and in the
first room Yazoo tells you about the wardrobe. The middle room is locked.
Check the wardrobe in the left room and a monster will appear.

 o------------------------------------------o
 | TANSUGON  [タンスゴン]           Port Slum |
 |------------------------------------------|
 | Drops       | 1000 gold                  |
 | Experience  | 500                        |
 | Attacks     | Sleeping gas, bites,       |
 o------------------------------------------o

To use the Gas Mask, just select it from the Items at the start of a turn, and
you can still attack. Continue to attack even when the Tansugon shuts itself
in the cupboard; even though some attacks might miss, at least there is no
danger of falling asleep. But in fact it's a lot easier in this game than in
MMR and with levels of 13 or so and good protection you'll defeat him
quickly.

Defeat him and return to speak to Yazoo on the same floor, who gives you the
[アパートのかぎ] - APARTMENT KEY. Go to the items inventory and click on the
Apartment Key and Use= (the top option) while standing in front of
the locked door. Go through to get the [ロックハッカー ] - LOCK HACKER from the
wooden box and you'll hear that reassuring triumphal music. The item will go
into the first available item slot. Always carry this item, as it is used in
many different places.


-----------------
2. North Building
-----------------
Enemies : Murderous Amoeba and Sniper Dog and DNA Blob, Empty Tank, Poison
          Potato Cannon, Gunbird, Pickaxe bird.
Treasure: [476 Gold],
          [ロンドンブーツ] - London Boots.

Go inside the northern most building on foot and up the stairs to the right.
Watch out for the DNA Blob enemies because they duplicate themselves and
you'll soon be fighting 8 of them at once for quite a while! However that also
means that experience and gold is multiplied!  Carry on up the next stairs at
the far left to the next floor. The left room is locked and there's a crate in
the right room with [ロンドンブーツ] - LONDON BOOTS. You need to unlock the
room with the Lock Hacker item obtained in the first building and open the
crate for [470 GOLD]. That's all there is in this building apart from more DNA
Blobs and a couple of people to talk to. I wouldn't bother with it and it's
not necessary to talk to anyone.

Carry on climbing up the stairs to the next floor, and you will find a blocked
door into a room, where someone is hiding out, and an empty wardrobe in the
adjoining room. You can't get access here, so continue again up to the next
floor.  The right hand room has an opening in the floor, and a ladder down to
the room below.  Although there is nothing to find you can speak to the man
and he mentions Yazoo, who you can find in the next building. You can climb
the next stairs to the roof but there is just one person to speak to and
nothing to find.


-----------------
3. South Building
-----------------
Enemies : None
Treasure: None

You can drive in here with the tanks but have to leave them at the door.
You'll see a tank waiting inside the first room. Talk to the man at the
counter and say Yes to be offered a chance to decide how much you are willing
to pay for this tank. It's going to cost a lot... so, although this is the
third tank you'll find, it's unlikely to be the third one you acquire.

I didn't manage to buy this until a lot later in the game and tried a whole
range of amounts, up to 60,000 Gold, and still he refused to accept my
generous offers. I increased it to 61,111 and he said yes. (I used the bounty
from defeating Gomez but I'm not sure that it's worth it!) The price seems to
be random and the best advice is to save your game before starting to bargain,
and reload if you want to try and pay less when you've had an offer accepted.

o---------o----------------o

For now, go upstairs and talk to the blue man at the left counter who sells
healing items.

When you buy the tank it comes equipped with medium grade tank parts:
[160ミリアモルフ] - 160MM SPARK Main Gun, [ガトリングほう] - GATLING (the same
Autogun that was on the Buggy), the [ウォズニアクII] - WOZNIAK II C UNIT, and
[シルフィード] - SILPHEED engine. It has the capacity for 32 shells and
323/2190 SP. Once you've got the tank, open an SE slot for it at Rocco or Il
Migra chassis mod shop and it only costs 3333 Gold.

4. West Building (Bottom left)

Enemies : None on the ground floor

Treasure: [609 gold],
          [いれずみシール] - Fake Tattoo,
          [かえんじゅう] - Flame Gun.

This contains a small puzzle, and you can test out the Lock Hacker again! Use
the Lock Hacker on the top locked door and push the first mannequin doll thing
out of the way. Then push the one at the left to the left. Go all the way
around the tables and down the ladder in the floor. (If you mess up, you can
leave the building to re-set the puzzle.)

Walk down the path and beware because enemies appear here and you don't have
your tanks.  Climb up the lower stairs in the passage and then out the door at
the top of the screen.  (The middle stairs takes you into a room from which
there is no exit.) Although you can walk around the shelves to reach the door
at the right and open it. If you push the mannequin out of the way and walk up
the area you'll find that you're back at the entrance! Instead, leave by the
opening at the left and stand on the brown circle at the corner of the
building.  Select "Examine" and a manhole cover will open with an audible
click. Descend the ladder.

You're back in the sewer type area with the same enemies as before. Walk up
the path and climb the stairs. Walk along the passage and into a room where
you can open three wooden boxes. The left one has [614 GOLD], the middle one
has [いれずみシール] - FAKE TATTOO, and the third contains a free weapon:
[かえんじゅう] - FLAME GUN. This is more powerful than the SMG but it only
targets one enemy.

TREASURE

SPECIAL
Chassis and Slot modification for tanks!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Drive north from Audrey and you'll cross the water to reach the wooded land.
As soon as you move forwards the ground will shake with a minor earthquake. It
won't hurt you so just ignore it and carry on driving north. Eventually you'll
find this town just south of the sea.

Inside the small building with a tank icon you'll find the Tank Tools and
Parts shops at the right side of the garage. It's very tempting to upgrade the
C Unit and buy better guns here but you'll need quite a bit of Gold to do that
and might want to wait until you've got the next tank and killed the bounty
enemy. The first counter is an Interiors shop and the second one is a Shell
shop where you can refill the main gun and buy specialist shells. The large
garage hosts the Hunter's Office with a poster of one already killed monster
(Dos Piranhas) and the new Mad Muscle. There's a Memory Centre and refill
centre as well as two Vending Machines and an Auto Repair man standing on his
own at the top left.

Inside the tent just outside the boundary of the town you'll find a trader mod
shop. They will boost the defence of the chassis for a tank: more expense but
worth it for tanks you'll be using for a while, and add to the special shell
capacity. You can also open new slots to your tanks giving you the option to
add more weapons: an SE gun to the Mosquito and a Main Gun to the Buggy. See
the next section for details about how to do this when you get your next tank!
The cost varies for each tank: the better the tank, the more Gold you'll have
to pay out. It's definitely worth while adding to the Magazine/Shells capacity
Each additional boost adds a little weight. These are the menu options after
you've selected the tank you wish to modify.

  1. Increase Magazine Capacity  -  do this as many times as they will allow:
                                    to a maximum of 128 shells for each tank.
  2. Increase Defence            -  do this a few times to reach the upper
                                    limit for that chassis
  3. Customise Slots             -  Main Gun - if permitted
     (Drill a hole)              -  Sub Gun  - if permitted
                                 -  SE Gun   - if permitted

You can confirm each increase before they go ahead and they won't do anything
if you've reached the limit or cannot have a slot opened.

The Inn contains a bar and two girls to chat to as well as a masseur. By the
way, you cannot access the upper floor of the Inn unless you pay for the most
expensive room.

Head for the armour shop and buy the Laser Rifle for Soldier as well as the
Rivet Cleats, and make sure everyone has a Barrier Seal equipped and maybe a
spare! When you're suited and booted, leave town and head west and then north
when you reach the mountains. It might be best to rent a tank for the third
person as there are some strong enemies on the way, and for that you'll need
to take a quick trip back to Pobre Obre or Audrey.


TREASURE
Leave Rocco and drive south, counting 25 paces and then, turn to the east and
count another 22 paces. You'll be in the middle of an area with long grass,
and the only other visible feature on the screen is two squares of brown at
the extreme bottom right edge. Examine the ground or use the Metal Detector to
find [4702 GOLD].

*FLOG RACE*
WANTED 3 : [マッド・マッスル] - MAD MUSCLE.
TANK 4   : [バン] - VAN
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From Rocco drive west and then north and you'll see a small grey building that
cannot be accessed by tanks. Stop outside and enter the "invincible" Hospital.
There's nothing to find on the ground floor so make your way up the stairs to
the next where you'll spot a man inside a room that you can enter from the
landing : just walk over the stool in front of the door. He'll run off and you
can stay awhile and play Frog Racing with a wager of 50G if you want.

Follow him into the corridor and he'll run again. Enter the room and open the
crate for a [かいふくドリンク] - HEALING DRINK, and the second one for a
[ニトロビール] - NITRO BEER. There's nothing in the wardrobe. Follow him down
the stairs and he'll run off again down some stairs. Push the plant pot down
the room and follow him down to the lower floor and check out the open
wardrobe. He's hiding there and will run off again to end inside the garage
with two pink looking ambulances. He gets inside one and when you cross the
threshold into the garage he'll confront you!

o--------------------------------------------------------------o
| W A N T E D 3 :  M A D  M U S C L E          Reward: 5,000G  |

He attacks once on each round and will hurt Hunter (if he's your leading
character) for around 115 HP on each turn which isn't too good. You can hardly
hurt him at all. He also might not attack on one round and pose instead, but
that's not good news because he'll attack with doubled power on the next turn.
Ideally have two people using the powerful Laser Rifle (or just the soldier if
money is tight, with Hunter using the Flame Gun you found), and mechanic
throwing items and healing the other two if HP gets below 250.

Use the Nitro Beer you found or a Blaze Bottle on him  He has really high
defence and it's hard to damage him by much at low levels. Keep checking the
equipment menu to see if the protector has broken and if so, replace it with
an intact one. [プロテクタくず] is what a scrapped protector looks like!
With the Laser Rifle Soldier can do around 50- 60 HP damage so keep her alive
whatever you do! My team were level 14/14/12 and they all gained a level.

|         |                |
o---------o----------------o

After the battle, walk up to claim the [バン] VAN. This comes equipped with a
HAL900 C Unit, and [ギガブル] GigaBull engine and nothing else, apart from the
chassis of course. Drive up the ramp to exit to the world map and pick up the
rest of your tanks. If you have a rental tank, then just tow the Van since it
cannot attack unless you move a weapon over from one of your other two tanks.
But the sensible thing is to use the Dog System and head back to town to heal
up and check out this new tank! Collect the bounty and you can buy new stuff.


SLOT MODIFICATION IN ROCCO
You'll soon discover that the Van is just an ambulance and isn't a tank so it
has no slots available for fitting guns until you find a mod shop to add them.
Go inside the trader camp at Rocco and pick Yes and then select the tank.
Choose the third option to be shown a list of Main Gun, Sub Gun and SE Gun.
Pick one and select Yes again to see the price. Confirm your choice and pay
the price to have the slot added. (This doesn't include any weapons and is
just to open a slot so you can add new guns!) For the Van it costs 5600 for
the Main Gun slot, 1400 for the Sub Gun and 1866 for the SE Gun. I just did
the latter two for now. You can also add an SE slot to the Mosquito (tank 1)
for 1033, and a Main Gun to the Buggy (tank 2) for 7200! Be aware that each
additional slot also adds a weight factor (.30 or .40 tons) so you'll need
some spare capacity to add them.

Buy an SE gun for the Van but don't bother with the Autogun if you want to
save money because there's one for free in the next location.

After equipping the Van, head out from Rocco and snake your way through the
trees heading northeast to the beach. You might find that you cannot go any
further because the tide is up. If that's so, just rest for a night in Rocco.
You'll find a hole leading to a cave on the south side of the lone tree on the
beach. Enter here and drive down the ramp to the next level. Head left along
the only path. You'll encounter the familiar Octopus Tank enemies here, but
they appear in large groups of up to 8! You'll also find an upgraded type of
octopus that's green and inflicts acid status on your tanks making them lose
SP continually. (Remember to cure this status with the tank tool :
アルカリワックス - Alkali Wax.)  At the end of the passage, drive down the cave
to find a wooden chest that contains a useful Sub gun tank weapon
[9ミリきかんほう] -  9MM CANNON, which you will probably want to equip to the
Van.

Take the ramp up to the next floor and the passage is blocked with a statue.
Simply drive up against it, pushing all the way down, to end up outside the
cave at a small shrine. Leave the shrine and drive due west, where you'll find
a Supply Shed with lots of Vending Machines in case you need to stock up or
refill your tanks' SP and shells.

offer. Talk to the person at the right to refill SP.

Slide back to the shore of the frozen lake and head right. You can walk or
drive, sliding up to the Inn, although you cannot take your tanks inside, so
it's best to walk. There are a few people to talk to and a massage man
available. I think the people tell you about the monster under the town and a
tall building to the north east, at least, they did in Metal Max Returns!

Back on the shore, drive to the point where you're facing the garage entrance
and turn left. Slide left across the ice and you'll end up on the grass below
a single tree and next to an area that's not accessible for tanks. Get out of
the your tanks and walk to the door of the Equipment Shop..You can buy some
excellent stuff here including a much better body armour and protector as well
as more powerful weapons. The Tools Shop sells the better Metal Detector that
allows you to search for a wider area on the world map. However, you won't be
doing any on foot fighting here, so it's wise to save your money for tank
weapons until you have gained the next bounty.

To access the main town, drive your tanks to face north on a patch of darker
green, one square to the left of the Garage building. You should be facing a
tree when you slide forwards. At the tree, turn left and slide again to stop
at another tree. Turn up and slide forwards through the middle doors of the
large building.


INNER TOWN
Tank Tool Shop, Tank Parts Shop, Memory Centre, Bar, Hunter's Office,
Inn (10G), Massage.

----------
1. Floor 5
----------
You'll arrive at Floor 5 and most of the rest of the building is underground.
Apart from a few areas on this floor you can stay inside your tanks and drive
down to the other floors using the elevator at the left. First of all get out
of the tanks and walk up the right corridor and climb the stairs to the roof
where you should talk to the man here. (In MMR that triggered a scene later
on, so it's advisable to do that just in case.)

On Floor 5 the top left counter sells Tank Tools including the valuable
Medical Kit that will let your characters heal up from the tank, although
eventually it will break. (Select the Tool command and the tank that has it
and you'll be asked to choose the person you want to heal.) The lower left
shop stocks all the tank parts and if you want to improve everything that's
going to cost a hefty amount. At least buy a better Main Gun for one tank if
that's all you can afford. The man at the back of the central area runs the
Auto Repair shop. The wanted posters and memory centre are at the right of the
floor and the Hunter's Office is at the back, behind the tank stop if you need
to claim a bounty. Enter the elevator at the left and you can take your tanks
down to the other floors.


----------
2. Floor 4
----------
You'll find the bar here and can buy a selection of cheap drinks. One man
mentions something about TNT and about a man called Tumack and his wife and
daughter. At the back of the floor to the right there's a massage man charging
10G per round, and another very cheap inn costing 10G per person.


----------
3. Floor 3
----------
Using the stairs from Floor 4 you can access the transport machine on this
floor but you cannot go any lower as the stairs are covered in ice. Use your
tanks to reach the rest of this floor by selecting 3F from the elevator. Drive
right and up through the first of two openings and you'll slide across an icy
floor. Open the wooden box in the top left corner to find a tank tool:
[かんきそうち] - VENTILATOR. This will go in the Tools inventory of whichever
tank Hunter is driving. This is a tool that activates automatically and you
don't need to do anything to switch it on. The fridges arranged on the icy
part of the floor don't contain anything, at least, the only one you can reach
is empty so don't bother sliding around here after getting the tank tool.


----------
4. Floor 2
----------
Drive up the middle of this floor and turn between the two benches to face
right. (The fridges here are also empty.) Slide right, between the first two
rows of meat to reach the right corridor. Drive down to the section of floor
that isn't iced and then right. Turn up, so you're facing the open doorway and
drive/slide through. Keep to the right of the icy room and drive down the ramp
to the lower floor.


----------
5. Floor 1
----------
Slide down the path and you'll see a large beast waiting next to a wooden
crate. This is the Mammoth Tusk bounty enemy! Slide left along the lower part
of the floor and then up to the top. Slide right, and turn down the room, and
you should be directly opposite the monster. Slide down to encounter the
beast! Well, you have to talk to it first...

It freezes all your tanks if you don't have a tank tool equipped to prevent
that, but it doesn't seem to stop you from firing guns and the status will
wear off after a while. Its main attack targets everyone but that doesn't do
much damage: a maximum of around 7 SP and usually less than that. Once in a
while it might do a more powerful strike on one, but there's a way to prevent
that.

I used SE guns until they ran out of ammunition. The TNT SE gun inflicted 114
damage to the Mammoth, which was reassuring, with the ATM doing about half
that. Auto guns will hardly dent it at all and shells don't do much damage,
but armour piercing shells will disable it completely, preventing an attack.
You really need the powerful Main gun you can buy in Freeza or this battle
will take a while... One other strategy is to fight with one person on foot,
and protect them with a tank. A Blaze Bottle is especially effective making
the monster lose around 15-30 HP for each turn for the rest of the battle
after you've thrown it. (My team were levels 15/15/13)

After defeating it, move down one pace with the tank and turn right to examine
the crate. You'll find the item [マンモスのキバ] - MAMMOTH TUSK which isn't a
Tank Tool in this game, but an ordinary Tool, so it will go to the first
available item slot for a character. To get out of here just return the way
you came OR use the Dog System and select Freeza to be deposited outside the
town on the world map. Return to the Hunter's Office to claim the bounty and
spend the gold on better equipment.

SPECIAL
TANK 5 : [パンサー] - PANTHER/PANZA TANK!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Drive north from Freeza and over the bridge, and head through the islands in
between the sand to the east and up a slope to a hut.  This is a Supply Shed
and if you talk to the man inside you can get a little more information about
the Corona Building, your next destination, but it's not essential  There's
also a cave to the north of the shed, just to the west of it and you'll find
nothing in here besides two people, one of whom suggests you use a Metal
Detector. The supply shed has some Vending Machines and a handy shop.

Drive around the supply shed hugging the wall and you can explore the area
behind it where there's a ramp leading down into a hole in the ground. Drive
down to the southeast wall of the cave and use your Metal Detector. You'll
find a free Main Gun in the square one in from the southeast corner: the
[105ミリキャノン] - 105MM CANNON.

If you just want to continue with the story make your way around to the east
of the hill with the shed and follow the narrow coastal path back to the west,
until you can drive south again. Then, head up the small ramp on the western
hillock and you'll spot a tarmac bridge. Cross over, staying to the north side
of the land and you'll end up at the Corona Building.

From left to right.

BEACH CAVE
----------
To reach the cave, head east along the beach and keep going east when you
discover a narrow spit of sand stretching out into the sea. At the far end is
a small hillock with a cave opening. It's possible to miss this out as the
cave is a dead end, but it contains some valuable tank parts as well as
another tank!


Floor 1
Drive up the cave and then down at the first turning into a small empty cave,
not going down the ramp for now. (You might set off some mines as you proceed,
and that will damage the tanks.) Either use a Mine Detector or just use the
Examine command in the middle of the cave, one step south from the plant.
You'll pick up a tank part: [ウォズニアクII] - WOZNIAK 11 which is a better
C Unit than the Hal900, so equip this immediately. If you're losing too much
SP then retreat, and sort out tank equipment again, adding Armour Tiles and
replacing shells.


Basement 1 - 3 Finding a Tank!
Head down the ramp and drive down and then, all the way left along the narrow
path and then, up and right, to get to the next ramp down to Basement 3. This
time, head down and right, and keep going a short way into an apparently empty
cave until you have to stop. Use the Metal Detector and you'll see a red flash
and find the [パンサー] - PANTHER/PANZA TANK!  It's buried just two steps to
the west of the eastern wall of the cave. There is also another item:
[タイルパック80] - 80 TILE PACK, buried by the straight south wall of the cave.
"Examine" the tank to claim it and do so again to tow the tank after claiming
and naming. I transferred the main gun to my Van which still had a much weaker
one. The nice thing about the Panza in this version of the game is that it
doesn't come loaded down with 4 lots of Lead Mushrooms, but it does have a
major disadvantage. It has 0 SP and you cannot add any SP to it at all, but
that's because it's very heavy! Equip it with a better engine to increase the
load it can carry and add the lightest weapons and it's not a bad tank
although its SP will always be pretty low. You could use the tank as a towed
vehicle so it can carry spare stuff for you.

By the way, I've called it the Panza because it fits in the naming screen,
although you might expect it to be called the Panther. It's a Panzer tank and
they had both these names, with the Tiger being the more powerful version. (In
MMR this was called a Tiger which confused me a bit, as a later tank in Metal
Max has that name too, and I named it Tiger, mistakenly, if anyone looks at
the screenshots.) Another point about this tank is that it has a Main Gun
already equipped [95ミリほう] - 95MM GUN, but you'd have to pay for a Sub Gun
and SE gun slot at the trader camp in Rocco. It costs 3133 G for an SE slot
and 2350 G for a Sub Gun.

o---------o----------------o

| T A N K |    PANTHER     |
|         |                |
o---------o----------------o

After this I used the Dog System to leave and sort out my tanks again, before
returning to pick up an engine for the Panza. The enemies on the second
floor seem to come in larger numbers and are more difficult to kill off unless
you have some SE ammunition left. Remember to head back to Riorado to get any
damaged tank parts mended for free by Dad.


Basement 2
From the first floor take the closest ramp down and drive left to where you
see some plants and water. Stop between the plants and the north wall and use
the Metal Detector. You'll find the [V24ハルク] - V24 HULK engine.

iii. コロナビル : Corona Building

LOCATION
Due west from the beach caves, crossing a road bridge to get there.

ENEMIES
Poison Potato Cannon, Kiwi Dropper, Burner Hopper, Sleeping Grass, Golden Ant,
Killer Closet.

TREASURE
F6:      [1525 G]
F13:     [きんののべぼう] - Gold Bar
F19:     [ガスマスク] - Gas Mask
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the place mentioned by some people in Freeza and elsewhere and it's a
broken down tower building. You cannot take your tanks inside and have to
leave them outside and enter the compound on foot. As soon as you do so
there's an ominous rumbling sound as if the building is about to fall. It's
pretty dilapidated and the elevator on the ground floor isn't operational.
Climb the stairs to F2 where you'll meet a girl blocking a doorway. When you
attempt to talk to her she'll run off to the right. There are stairs leading
down to the other section of the ground floor but there's nothing to find, so
just climb up to the next floor.

On the third floor you'll find the girl again and once again, talk to her only
to see her disappear. Follow her down the room and out onto a broken balcony
where you'll spot her dashing off to the left. Take one step left and turn up
to go back inside the building and up some stairs. On this floor there are two
exits, one through the right wall and one near the stairs. They both lead to
an outer ledge where you can walk left to meet up with the girl again. This
time she asks a question. It doesn't matter what answer you give and she
disappears down a hole in the floor. Follow her.

Speak to Molina, Tumack's daughter and then, check the computer and select
"ON". This will make the lift work. Now go right and enter the lift. You are
on Floor 3 and there are 21 floors although the lift doesn't go to all of
them: just 1-5, 13, 20 and 21. You can use the lift to return to the bottom
floor and the exit if you want.

Take the lift to F5 where you'll find a locked door. This is also when battles
will start, at least they did for me with a quartet of Gold Ants! If you're in
a battle or leave a floor you'll have to unlock the doors again.

IMPORTANT!
I found the rare Killer Closet enemy on Floor 5, inside the locked part with
the bookcases. It turns up infrequently but when it does there are two of
them. This monster dropped the Iron Girdle protector in MMR and I expect it
does the same here. You'll also find lots of Golden Ants so the worst that can
happen is that everyone levels up quickly!

Use the [ロックハッカー] - Lock Hacker on the door and climb the stairs to F6.
Use the Lock Hacker again on this locked door and Examine the wooden box to
find a generous [1525 GOLD]. Return to F5 and take the lift to F13.

You'll spot the wooden crate easily. Open it to receive the
[きんののべぼう] - GOLD BAR which can be sold for a goodly sum! If you take the
stairs up or down from F13 you'll find nothing and no lift on F14 or F12. Take
the lift up to F20 and descend the stairs (or jump down the hole in the top
left corner) to F19 where you'll find another wooden box with a
[ガスマスク] - GAS MASK. Return to the previous floor and ride the lift up to
the top floor F21.

Make your way around the holes in the floor until you reach a blue clothed man
lying on the floor at the lower right of the room. Talk to him to rouse him
and walk away and he'll start to walk back to the lift. (If he doesn't do
that, talk to him a second time.) Follow him into the lift and you'll be back
on the ground floor. He's waiting by the door and his daughter is on the other
side the door.

Speak to him again and he will explain his plan. Tell him you are ready (or
say no if you haven't found everything yet. While he does what he wants
you cannot move, and then you're outside again and the way is clear! Drive
down the ramp to the beach and head west over a series of islands until you
reach the mainland and another town! By this point my team's levels were
17/17/16.

All Tank Modding is available here.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The building to the right of the entrance rents three tanks and that's all
they do. The left building has the Tank tools shop at the left counter, with
the parts shop in the middle, and the shells shop at the right. Buy the Emmy C
Unit for at least one tank and all of them if you can afford it. It's a huge
improvement even on the Wozniak II and by this time you should have sold off
all the Hal900s. There is a better C Unit but it's not one you can buy so the
Emmy will last for the rest of the game for most of your tanks.

The large garage has a modification facility. Talk to the man at the back left
of the room to modify engines, (cost depends on the engine.) and the man next
to the back wall to increase magazine capacity, chassis defence or add a
weapon slot. The small building at the right is also a garage, and contains
the Hunter's Office and Memory Centre, with a new bounty poster of Gomez, a
fearsome looking man in red wielding a hammer. The repair mechanic is found at
the top left corner and the person in red at the right runs the refill shop
for shells and SP.

If you talk to the folks in town you'll learn a little about some bandits, at
least you would if you understand the text!  Leave your tanks inside one of
the garages and cross over to the other part of town. There's still quite a
bit to do!

Check out the equipment shop at the right and buy the very cheap Earplugs that
might be helpful at some point to block out the bad noises. Maybe improve
armour and buy a couple of throwing items too. There's a Vending Machine in
here selling the usual healing and attack stuff. Inside the inn you'll find
the usual massage man but despite the number of rooms there's nothing to find.
At the back of town are three wooden buildings with poor families living
there. Again, there's nothing to find, but people will be telling you about
their poverty and the threat from bandits. Finally, enter the bar

Inside the Bar you'll be treated to a new experience. Yes, not only "flog"
racing, but dancing girls! The show starts as soon as you move towards the
stage, past the first seated man. After it's over, walk through to the
dressing room and talk to the girl at the left. Answer Yes and return over the
stage and walk around to talk to the man guarding the door to the girls and
he'll stand aside. (Answer No and he won't move, but you can try again.) If
you don't want to watch the dancing just walk up over the bar stools, but
nothing will happen. Also if you leave and return everything is back to the
way it was. Anyway... she tells you about Walgelyo the bad guy around here.
(I think you have to hear this in order for him to turn up.)

Yuge cannot be warped to using the Dog System or Transfer Centre.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Enter Yuge before going to the North Ferry location and a man standing outside
the equipment store will go inside closing the door. Actually he's just
standing on guard blocking the door and if you talk to him he'll let you
inside. But it's obvious that the town is on alert. The large garage has two
vending machines although you can only reach the first one for now, and there
are no other services available. That means, no shells or Armour Tiles
replenishment! Come back later after defeating the threat to the town to
access the second Vending Machine.

The bar sells drinks and there are lots of people ready to talk to you
although it's not necessary. You'll also find three operational Flog Race
machines! The left one costs 100G, the middle one 150G and the right one 200G.
The Memory place is inside the Inn and you'll find the usual massage man.
Enter the smaller tank building and talk to the guard before you're allowed
inside. They sell some excellent tank weapons as well as the powerful V24
engine but all this will cost a lot. If you don't have much gold then, earn
more, or hope you manage the next battle without having to buy anything. (I
didn't have enough for any of it and managed with no problems.)

This is the location of the bandit group and they have protected their hideout
with lots of mines! These are located in the sandy ground next to the
building, but by driving down the middle of the ground you'll avoid most of
them. Stop before reaching the last step and use the Mine Detector to locate
the final one and turn left to avoid it. You can visit Yuge first but the
people will be anxious and the large garage won't have its services running.

Enter the building and talk to all three men to trigger them moving and
letting you inside. You can access two Vending Machines here.

Make ready for a battle and approach the jetty. A boat arrives and a tank will
disembark and face your position. Say yes and you're in a battle with the
three henchmen and a blue tank.

| Attacks     | Attacks (one gun attack on one tank)     |
o--------------------------------------------------------o

Go for the henchmen first as they might use a sleep or noise attack, but the
Earplugs will protect from this. You should be able to defeat them all on the
first turn. The tank uses one all party attack that hurts each tank for around
45-50 SP damage and another one that does around 25 SP damage. He will only
have one turn if the henchmen are still alive, but two when they are dead. Use
Armour Piercing shells to disable him and attack with your best weapons: SE
guns and Main guns and he'll go down quickly as he doesn't have a lot of SP.
(My team were all Level 18 at this point.)

After the battle the tank has disappeared and someone seems to be blocking the
ferry, but simply drive along the south jetty and enter the boat, and it will
move off and deposit you on the south shore.

Ferry access.

There's a Vending Machine here and nothing else. Buy some Para-Non as a
precaution and set forth into this new land!. There are a a wealth of choices
now. You can find Eden, a town tucked away in the mountains to the southeast
of the Ferry, carry on driving south to the secret waterfall base, or find Sol
to the far east. Sol and Eden are the nearest "Dog System" towns and it's the
logical next step to find them both. That gives you access to more choices,
both in terms of buying better tank and human equipment and accessing some
other intriguing locations.

However, before deciding where to go there's a fantastic free engine to find.
From the Ferry building drive 4 steps right and then head down the grass and
count 9 or 10 steps. (You won't be able to see any map features at all at this
spot, only grass.) Use the Metal Detector and you should be right on top of
the flashing red mark. Examine it and you'll find [V48コング] - V48 KONG.

The problem with this tricky enemy is that it will escape if you don't kill it
quickly. Before coming after it, equip your tanks with good Main Guns and SE
guns too and use your most powerful attacks. Shells don't seem to work on it
so I wouldn't bother with those. It has about 500 SP so it's not hard to kill,
although it might prevent your attacks by some status effect. Hunter with the
160 Spark and someone else using the ATM SE gun did the trick.

iv. 滝つぼのアジト東 : Secret Waterfall Base Trader Camp
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LOCATION
A long way south from the South Ferry, past the cracked ground to the west,
and follow a narrow path west to reach a sharp turn just before the waterfall.

AREA ENEMIES
Missile Carrier, Roaming Plating, Radio Blossom, Sonic Cobra, Slow Walker
(rare), Gasoline Caiman.

SPECIAL
Drinking Game!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

From the Tank Ferry, drive due south and keep going... for a long long way! As
you go further south, the route narrows down to a single file wending its way
south and then west, along the bank of a river. Eventually you'll reach a
sharp turn south, and there's a single sandy square at the corner. Drive in
here to find a Trader Camp with not much for sale, unless you want to buy a
mini-game or need to stock up on Tile Packs and Repair kits. However, this is
one of the rare places that sells Energy Capsules and those are worth buying
in bulk! From here, keep going following the narrow path around the waterfall
and heading north (past the Secret Base building at the left of the path) and
eventually you'll reach open grassland. Drive east to find the next town and
Dog System location of Santa Poco.

A long way south from the South Ferry, at the west of the waterfall, OR, from

WANTED 7: [ゴメス] -  GOMEZ
TANK 7  : [ レッド ウルフ] - RED WOLF
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Leave this until after reaching Santa Poco and return down the path from
there. It's a shorter distance and you'll be able to improve the quality of
your tank weapons before fighting the Wanted enemy. Also, the route from the
South Ferry has a very high encounter rate!

Don't bring along a towed tank as it's just a nuisance when you acquire your
new tank. Drive back down the path towards the waterfall and enter the
building at the left of the path. This is the final stage of the story-line
that started when you met Red Wolf in the bar at Riorado and inside the cave
there, and finishes off the Il Migra scenario when you heard about the
bandits. Here you'll find the Waygelyo's boss, Gomez as well as another tank.

Quite a scene awaits you on entering the compound and there's one scared
bandit sheltering at the top corner of fence, but he won't do anything if you
talk to him. There's nothing inside the first building and don't be tempted to
park your tanks! Enter the second one to be greeted with a scene which plays
out in front of you.

Gomez and Red Wolf are squaring up to a fight, but Gomez has a dastardly trick
up his sleeve. Nina, Red Wolf's girl is his prisoner and he uses her to lure
Red Wolf out of his tank. After some chat Gomez enters his tank, but Red Wolf
is still on foot so he's at a distinct disadvantage when the battle starts.
You watch it but cannot control Red Wolf and there's nothing you can do to
change the outcome. After the battle you can leave and return later to the
same scenario, OR go forwards and agree to beat Gomez (Talk to him and say
YES!) My group were level 23 and had the LAV, Panza and Mosquito tanks.

o------------------------------------------------------------o

Use Hollow Point and Armour Piercing Shells if you want a fast win, but it's
not hard to defeat the tank with half decent Main Guns and SE weapons. Your
tanks will suffer over 100 SP loss on each turn, sometimes more than that, so
having high SP is the best defence. Compared to MMR it's very easy, as you had
to fight two battles in that game.

Move forwards to talk to Red Wolf and then, Examine the red tank and make it
your own. It comes with a wealth of excellent equipment and you'll use this
tank right up to the end of the game. Its guns are fully loaded and the
magazine can carry up to 128 shells. It has a generous 808/1360 SP.

While you are here you might as well raid the place. You have to be on foot to
cross to the back room where you can also talk to the girl. There are two
wooden boxes to the right of the wardrobe. The left one has a useful sellable
item, the [きんののべぼう] - GOLD BAR, and the right contains
[がっぽりのさいふ] - OVERSTUFFED WALLET. Leave the building and move to wherever
you want to go next, but remember to claim the reward and spend it all!

Entrance to Sol Sewers.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------
1. SOL WEST
-----------
Sol is a little different from other towns because one section of it isn't
accessible at all when you first arrive. Although there's a garage building it
might appear as if there is nowhere for your tanks to shelter. Drive up and
turn left into the building with the arrows pointing left and you're
inside, and can park here while you explore. You'll find the Memory Centre and
Hunter's Office inside this building, together with the Refill Station. The
man standing behind the person in red will repair any damaged parts. The other
buildings are only accessible on foot and there's no bar in this part of town.

The Inn is on three floors and you can jump off the balcony from the top
floor, which is always fun. You'll have to do some fighting soon, without
tanks, so buying better armour and weapons is essential. If you want to
upgrade tanks parts then take a side trip to Eden, because the other shops are
inaccessible until you've completed a tricky mission here.

Sol Tower is to the right, but it's blocked by a man and a parked tank and
you'll have to find an alternative route to the far side of town, although the
tower itself can't be explored in this game. (Play MMR is you want to know
what's inside!) Climb to the second floor of the garage where someone tells
you about a route (well, they did in MMR!). Anyway, it's easy enough to find.
Head for the upper left of the town behind the garage and you'll see a sandy
patch of ground with a manhole in the middle of it. Examine it to open up
access to the underground sewers of Sol!

2. SOL EAST
-----------
After claiming the LAV tank the whole of Sol is open for business with the
second garage and Bar accessible. As well as that you can rent out tanks.
Return to the west side and enter the tent at the back of the town where the
woman rents out three tanks!

Inside the bar you'll find two wanted posters, two waitresses and a Jukebox.
The house at the right has a scared man who has barricaded himself behind a
wardrobe, but you can enter the house by the back door and talk to him.
The garage sells some extremely expensive tank parts and some less expensive
shells as well as ordinary shells for the Main and SE guns. The three computer
screens are pointless: no mini-games and nothing to see.

SPECIAL
TANK 6   : [装甲車] - ARMOURED CAR/LAV
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you can manage it, (and there's no reason why not) head over to Eden and
buy the Metallic Suit for Soldier as this is the best armour just for her.
With her high HP and stonking defence she's going to be your human tank in the
sewers. Sadly, there's no Freeze gun in this version of the game so you'll
have to make do with something less effective. The Ultrasonic Wave Gun is
powerful and it targets groups so this is good for the soldier when fighting
masses of Amazons.

You'll need some Fire Extinguishers for the boss (as a precaution) and
don't use a fire weapon on it, or fire tools. Buy Shield Cloaks for the other
two and all the better equipment you can afford including spare protectors for
everyone (at least one each). Remember that you don't have tanks so you cannot
quickly escape this dungeon and it's tough going. You'll also need the better
quality Healing Drinks and maybe a Smokescreen item or two. Drop off any Tools
you don't need back at Riorado to make room for all this. If you're not sure
about this expense then try out the sewers and see how you get on!

Walk right, along the tunnel and you'll see a bright red something swimming in
the sewer!  Continue along the path as it turns down the screen, and then go
right, along a narrow path, to speak to an old man who tells you what you will
have guessed already. From here, return to the main passage and walk left.
Follow the path and go up at the junction. You'll find a room with a computer
screen. Examine it and select ON to drain the sewers.

Go down the ladder into the now accessible lower sewer, and keep going right,
and you'll soon spot the red monster. Check your health and protectors (they
might have been broken after getting pummelled by the Amazons) and go
forwards to meet the sewer boss! In fact he's not red at all, but a large
green crocodile.

| Attacks     | Breathes Flames (all) Thrashes tail (one)  |
o----------------------------------------------------------o

At level 19 or 20 with good equipment you should survive his attack on one,
although it can do well over 300 HP worth of damage. He doesn't have a lot of
HP though (I think about 400, if that) and one shot from the soldier with the
Ultra Wave Gun might kill him outright: if it connects! He is able to deflect
some shots or guard somehow and some of your attacks might miss altogether.

After the battle walk along to the right of the sewer, and you'll find a
wooden crate next to the east wall. Examine it to find an excellent pair of
boots, the [ワニのながぐつ] - CROCODILE KNEE-HIGHS. You can leave the sewer
at the steps nearby, but first of all head back to collect a very important
item. The Amazon enemies seem to disappear now and you'll encounter weaker
ones, although the Drill Worms might turn up in large groups and they can
cause some damage, so be careful. (Alternatively, leave and return for this
later, but don't forget! The switch stays off, so it's easy enough to enter
again at the manhole and walk along the sewer to find the crate.)

Go back to the point where the path turned to find the old man and you'll see
that there's another wooden box revealed when the water was drained. Make your
way back along the path until you can go down to sewer floor and access the
box. Examine it for the reward of music and the [メガネのレンズ] - GLASSES LENS,
another one of the items needed for the best weapon!

When you exit the Sewer you'll find yourself close to the Tower and the man
that was guarding the tank runs off. Croc is not a Wanted monster, so you
don't get any reward for killing him...except, of course, you DO get another
tank! Now all you have to do is walk over to the tank and claim your
[装甲車] - ARMOURED CAR! In the translation for MMR this tank was called
the LAV, which might seem an odd name, but in fact the LAV is an abbreviation
for Light Armoured Vehicle so it makes perfect sense! Anyway, I'm going to
call it by that name. (The LAV has wheels and tyres which is what
distinguishes it from tracked tanks.)

The LAV joins you with 120/1710 SP and is already equipped with a
[11ミリバルカン] - 11 MM VULCAN Autogun, [ウォズニアクII] - WOZNIAK II C Unit
and [インパルス] - IMPULSE engine. It doesn't have an open slot for a Main Gun
so you'll need to pay a visit to the tank mod place at Il Migra or Rocco to
get one added, but it cost a whopping 8000 Gold! You can also open an SE slot
for 2666G.

If you're in need of cash then see the next section for the location of some
hidden gold, Also, you can find a free weapon before deciding what to buy in
Eden. It's only a short detour down the railway line.

Back in Eden, the Hunter's Office is inside the Transporter room, which is
unusual and easy to miss! Shop for your tanks in the large garage where you'll
find the Tools shop at the lower right corner counter and the Parts at the
upper right counter. Buy at least one of each type of gun. They will all last
you a long time and the Excalibur was one of the most useful SE guns in MMR.
The Spark seems expensive but it has a greater capacity for ammunition than
some other guns and it will smash enemies fast if you equip it to the tank
that Hunter drives. The Auto Repair mechanic is at the top left of this
garage and the Memory Centre at the left. The Rental garage has three tanks
for rent.

The rest of the services are in the train carriages. The Bar comprises two
carriages with a Juke Box and a second Tools Shop at the far left, although it
sells the same things as the first one. The unlabelled carriages are domestic
residences with nothing to find, but the one behind the garage hosts the
equipment and tools shops.

i. North-South Subway Ruins [Wanted 6]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LOCATION
Southeast from Eden. Drive down the railway track and then along the green
path between the mountains.

ENEMIES
None (at first). DNA Blob, Security Camera, Sonic Cobra, Golden Ant, Laser
Beetle.

TREASURE
World Map: [5306 Gold] - southeast from Eden
Subway B1: [ ジェットサーベル] - Jet Saber

SPECIAL
WANTED 6: [ムカデロン] - MUKADELON
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Starting from Eden, drive south down the railway track and make your way along
the open path to the southeast. Use the Metal Detector when you reach the area
to the right of the last section of sandy ground and track. Face the low hill
to the south and you'll see the red flash inside the hills. Get out of your
tanks and walk through the trees facing the hills at the south. Examine the
ground and you'll pick up [5306 GOLD]! Carry on along the track a short
distance and you'll find a cave opening into the Subway Ruins. You'll also be
able to see the edge of a man-made platform with a dark tower, across the
water to the east, which is the next destination, via a roundabout route!

Drive into the cave and down the staircase and open the wooden crate on the
landing to obtain the [ ジェットサーベル] - JET SABER. You can get this early on
(as soon as you have taken the Ferry to the south) and leave exploring the
subway until later if you wish. However, this Wanted enemy isn't too difficult
to defeat and it's not a bad plan to come here BEOFRE going down the sewers in
Sol so you have sufficient cash to equip everyone with the very best stuff
that Gold can buy!

Continue to the bottom of the stairs and check the orange box in the lower
left corner of the tunnel. Talk to the man who appears and carry on to the
right and then, through a gap in the wall. You're now in a cave and there are
still no enemies. Drive down the ramp and go left to the rail tracks, and down
and right, through another cave and down a ramp. You'll find a man inside this
cave, facing the wall. Talk to him and check out the crack on the north wall
of the tunnel when he moves away. (Use Examine to do that.) That will give you
the option to say Yes or No. Answer YES to trigger a scene where you blast the
wall allowing access to the rest of the subway.

As soon as this happens enemies appear and you'll quickly trigger the
appearance of the Wanted monster although it might not be the first battle.

He can take off around 150 SP on each turn for every tank with that tail
lashing attack, and will use a less powerful attack that inflicts status
effects. The best way to deal with him is to fire shells, especially cold
shells (buy them in Freeza) and armour piercing ones. Main guns and SE guns
might not do much damage it him, especially if you haven't yet bought the more
expensive ones. So long as your tanks have plentiful SP at the start of the
battle you can manage it pretty easily. My team were at Level 19 with the
Buggy, Mosquito and Van.

Use the Dog System to escape the tunnels and return to a Hunter's Office to
claim the reward, and spend it! Return to Pobre Obre or Audrey to buy some
Alkali Wax Tank Tools so you can remove acid from your tanks.

Return to the tunnels and this time continue to the left where you broke the
wall. Enemy encounters are high and there's a good chance that your tanks will
suffer from the acid status effect from the DNA Blobs. Drive to the left and
take the first turn down and use the ramp to ascend to the next floor. At this
point you'll meet larger groups of the more dangerous pink Sonic Cobras and
blue Laser Beetles. A pretty combination, but don't underestimate these
enemies. Follow the short tunnel to enter the rail track section and drive
down the right wall until you can't go any further. Head over to the left wall
and you'll see an opening. This takes you to a hole in the north cave wall
which leads back to the subway. Drive right some distance, and up the stairs,
and you'll be on an island with a dark tower.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ii. 電波塔 : Broadcast Tower
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LOCATION
On an island accessed by the North-South Subway Ruins, south from Eden.

AREA ENEMIES
Singing Parabola.

TREASURE
F2:    [ヘビメタグローブ] - Heavy Metal Gloves
F3:    [ぼうだんチョッキ] - Bulletproof Vest
FTop:  [BSコントローラ] -  BS Controller

SPECIAL
Obtain the BS Controller and use to see the world map!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Leave your tanks inside the entrance (so they don't get damage by being left
outside) and cross the threshold into Broadcast Tower. There are no enemies in
the main tower and although there is a lift, you cannot go beyond the third
floor.

-------
Floor 1
-------
This place seems quite fun because it has a dedicated games room, sort of!
Walk right after entering the tower and you'll find a range of vending
machines, juke boxes and mini-games. Change the music if you don't like the
tune in here, although there's only one other option. All the games are the
same *Flog Race* with the same 50G wager and both jukeboxes play the same
tunes.

-------
Floor 3
--------
Climb the stairs at the top or bottom right, or use the lift, and go up to the
third floor (the aquarium). Find the man at the top left who's blocking access
to another wooden crate. Talk to him and he tells you that he's lost
"Marilyn". Your task is to find her! She's lost somewhere underground so go
down the stairs to the right of the man until you reach the underground level.

--------
Basement
--------
Walk down the left or right passage and you'll encounter a few of those Methyl
Amazon enemies, but they won't be too much trouble to you. Follow the only
path to the right (or left) and you'll spot the girl waiting in the middle of
basement. Talk to her and answer YES. She'll tag on to the back of the group.
Return to the man and he'll greet you and move aside with his dolly girl! Now
you can reach the crate in the corner. Examine it to acquire another
protector: [ぼうだんチョッキ] - BULLETPROOF VEST.

After getting these two items go to the second floor.

-------
Floor 2
--------
You're on a floor with lots of "people" and displays most of which won't work.
Find a wooden crate at the top left corner which contains some new armour:
[ヘビメタグローブ] - HEAVY METAL GLOVES. Use the "Examine" command on the two
computer screens and switch them ON to make the mannequins dance. (Just move
the cursor to "On".) The information boards cannot be read.

It's obvious that you should get to the stairs in the middle of the floor, but
when you try to do that a little devil mannequin will move and block you.
Enter the square path from the upper left corner and the devil will move along
the path from the right to the left. As he moves go back and stand behind the
red doll at the top left of the upper row of blue dolls. When the devil moves
to the left of your position, push forwards, and the red doll will block him
into the top left corner. Now you can get to the stairs by walking along the
path from the right and the devil will stay where he is. If you return here
later, the puzzle will have re-set.

--------
Floor 4
--------
Climb the stairs to the fourth floor where there are holes in the floor. Walk
down the corridor and door will open allowing you access to the whole floor.
DO NOT go through the openings in the outer wall or you'll be back at the
bottom of the tower! Make you way around the gaps to the right and skirt
around the hole heading left to the middle of the floor. Go through the
opening and up to elevator and choose floor 5.

-------
Floor 5
-------
You'll find two old men living up here and four computers, but nothing happens
when you talk to them and check the screens. However, there's a wooden crate
here, hiding between the two sets of computers. Open it to acquire the
[BSコントローラ] -  BS CONTROLLER. Talk to the left man and he mentions the
item, but I'll explain a bit more! This Tool is extremely valuable for two
reasons. It will display the world map and your current location, and call a
Laser to strike all enemies if you use it in battle, but you'll have to wait
for three turns before anything happens.

Return to Floor 4 and exit by one of the openings and you'll be back on the
world map outside the tower. Check out your new super item by selecting TOOLS
and to USE it from the character whose inventory it's in (I keep it with
Hunter but it's easy enough to recognise the name). You'll be shown the world
map and your current position is highlighted with a flashing black and white
square. Pick up your tanks and get out of there.

SPECIAL
Hidden Transporter. Tank Wash! Healing Spring.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Make a dash for Santa Poco and then rest and heal up and return down the track
to the Waterfall to the secret base. It's much easier to do it this way around
rather than attempting that battle after the long journey from the South
Ferry. Also, from here you can reach every other location aside from the
Global Relief Centre, which needs a password! If you want to gain gold and
levels quickly then make your way north west hugging the edges of the desert
and head south. You should run into a large green tortoise looking enemy which
gives you 15000 Gold and 13000 experience points for each one killed. Use
Armour Piercing Shells to destroy its defence or a Hollow Charge shell, and
then fire your most powerful guns. It's tough to defeat and might run away but
it won't hurt you too much.

Anyway, the good news about Santa Pcco is that this is the only place with a
Tank Wash. This will remove bad status effects such as acid or bird crap.
Drive into the small Rental Tank building at the right and don't go inside but
head left along a narrow road and you'll be at the front of the tank wash
building. Approach the two men blocking what looks like a tank parking
building. Talk to the one at the right and answer YES and pay a small sum.
You'll roll forwards into the tank wash and emerge with your tanks all shiny
and new. There's a Vending Machine at the top left of this building.

Another unique service in situated in the middle of the town inside the large
building that looks like a garage. Go in here on foot and try to enter the
pool. You'll be prompted to answer Yes and everyone will be fully healed, so
there's no need to stay at the Inn. The Bar has two Frog Race machines and a
Juke Box, and the massage man is found at the table to the right of the door.

There are a number of Vending Machines including three inside the left
building, although one of them is blocked by someone so you can't even see
what's on offer, and the others are all sold out. I'll tell you what you're
missing though. ;) Two more are in the Tank Parts building, with another
inside the Tank Wash. The Equipment shop has yet another Vending Machine and
there's a second shop inside the tent at the back of the town.

Attempt to enter the door of the unmarked house at the left of town and you'll
see a dog and grassy path leading around the left corner of the house. At the
end of the path you'll see a manhole cover. Walk around the path, pushing the
dog gently out of the way if it won't move on its own! Examine the manhole to
access a ladder down to a hidden transporter room. (In MMR this was a route to
the Life Sciences Lab building you found all that time ago which had no
access. But, you needed to have visited the final town on the transfer list
first and then select that place from the locations listed to trigger a
transfer malfunction. In this game, the final location on the list is Hell's
Gate, located north from Santa Poco. (In fact, I eventually got the
malfunction by selecting Hell's Gate from Riorado.)

While you're here take some time to re-organise your tanks' parts giving the
better stuff to your best tanks and leaving the others parked at Riorado. By
this point you should have all tanks except for the last one and enough Gold
to spend on better equipment. Use the Abrams and Red Wolf as your main two and
consider improving defence and shells capacity if you haven't already done so.
Make sure all tanks have the Emmy C Unit because you need the better accuracy
that gives you, as well as a powerful main gun and SE gun. Mix it up so they
each have slightly different weapons. Invest in some tank tools for better
protection from status effects and to boost accuracy. Money spent on chassis
improvements won't be wasted because these two tanks will serve you to the end
of the game.

i. ゴミ捨て場 : Organic Waste Landfill [Wanted 8]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LOCATION
Northeast from Santa Poco in the middle of a forest to the west of the cracked
ground. (East from Hell's Gate barrier.)

AREA ENEMIES
Hell's Stove, Floating Hyena, Gun Tower, AT Elephant, Singing Parabola,
Syringe Spider, Radio Blossom.

LANDFILL ENEMIES
Laser Eye, Sonic Stunner, Enormous Ant.

TREASURE
[のうしゅくメチル] - Concentrated Methyl Acid
[バリアシール] - Barrier Seal
[ハンドバルカン] - Hand Vulcan

SPECIAL
WANTED 8: [ ダストフランケン] - DUST FRANKEN
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

You cannot use tanks inside this location and you've got to defeat a Wanted
monster on foot. Stock up on protectors, healing items (Energy Capsules are
better than the Healing Drink) and the best weapons
you can afford and maybe buy the Light Saber in Santa Poco, especially if you
haven't upgraded weapons for a while, or the cheaper Neutron Gun from Eden and
Sol. You want weapons that target a single enemy for the best results, but so
long as Soldier has the best weapon and everyone else has the best armour and
protectors you should be able to manage the battle, even at Levels of 23/24.

To find this place drive north east from Santa Poco, towards the large crack
in the ground. There is a small building surrounded by trees, west of the
crack and next to the water's edge. Drive north, edging between the trees and
the cracked ground to the top right of the forest, and park the tanks at the
edge of the wooded area where the trees are small. You can walk through these
trees on to reach the building.

As soon as you enter you'll trigger the sentry machines and have to fight four
of them (2 Laser Eye and 2 Sonic Stunner), which is simple enough and there
are no other enemies. You can go through to the back of the room at the right
and use the ladders to reach a lower floor with a moving conveyor belt, or
just save yourself the effort and climb the steps at the left of the entrance
and slide onto the conveyor belt. This drops you off onto the lower belt and
you'll just stand there waiting for something to happen as it slowly moves
right. Eventually you'll be dropped off to the basement discard floor. Note
that you cannot get out of here except by climbing the stairs back to the top
floor.

Walk right and down the edge of the middle staircase and you should run into
the boss, He turned up immediately although in MMR he took a bit of coaxing
before he emerged from his hiding place in the trash. If you wander around the
the room you'll also encounter Enormous Ant enemy groups.

I guess he has a very leathery skin because only the soldier seemed able to
hurt him. Annoyingly, if you use the Gas Mask you don't get to make an attack
so I'd suggest not bothering with those except maybe for Robin so he stays
active and able to heal the other two. The [みみせん ] Earplugs headgear might
help protect from confusion and I equipped these to the soldier  Franken can
hit for a huge amount - over 500 loss of HP by Robin and 700 on Hunter and
that's how you'll know that a protector has been smashed. He doesn't attack
with such ferocity on every turn, only inflicting less than 10 HP damage,
which is of little reassurance, given the fact that he can also
paralyse/confuse someone.

Check on protectors if someone is hit because it has probably broken and you
must replace it. Even if it survives a huge wallop, you'll still need to use
an Energy Capsule to recover. At Level 23 I ended up with everyone either dead
or paralysed or my first attempt: not our finest hour! Try buying the Rocket
Punch, bought in Canabelle, for Soldier and defend with the other two if
you're having the same kind of trouble  However I managed better on my next
attempt at the same levels so it is possible to win at low levels, with just
the soldier attacking, as he doesn't have much HP.

After Dust Franken bites the dust, climb the stairs until you reach an
open floor. Go left and you'll find a wooden crate in the lower left corner.
It contains a throwing Tool [のうしゅくメチル] - CONCENTRATED METHYL ACID.

Keep climbing the stairs until you reach a corridor with a locked door. Use
the [ロックハッカ]ー Lock Hacker on it and go down the stairs in this room.
You're inside a small room with two wooden crates. The lower one contains
another protector, the [バリアシール] - BARRIER SEAL and the upper one has a
weapon, the [ハンドバルカン] - HAND VULCAN,.which targets a group of enemies.

Return to the previous floor and you'll have to unlock the door again before
climbing the stairs to the top floor where there's a conveyor belt and a red
switch. The switch doesn't do anything, and in any case the conveyor is moving
so walk onto it and you'll drop down onto another belt. This time, WALK LEFT!
If you don't you'll end up being deposited back in the basement where you
fought Franken. At the far left, hop off the belt and exit the room up the
stairs and you're back at the right side of the ground floor near the room
with bookshelves. Walk down and leave!

The final stage of this adventure involves getting back to your tanks in one
piece. If someone is dead that's not so simple because of the high encounter
rate, even though it's only a short distance. I had to run away from two
battles before we were safely ensconced in our tanks. Use the Dog System to
return to town and claim the gold!

SPECIAL
Trigger the forest fire (not on this visit though!)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Enemies around Canabelle are surprisingly weak and you'll encounter ones
you've met before, earlier in the game especially if you head towards the east
of the map. That's because you're due west from Riorado although there's a
forest in the way, for the time being.

Only the east side of town is accessible to tanks. The Rental garage rents out
two tanks but there's nothing else inside, and the large garage has a shells
refill station at the first counter and a Shells shop. Buy plenty of Hollow
Charge shells and you'll soon see how effective they can be against single
well defended enemies. (Choose to Buy (first option) and then the first option
on the next screen to replenish guns and the second option to buy shells.) The
SP Refill station is at the counter to the right and the Repair guy is
standing around at the top right. That's all in here, apart from two Vending
Machines, and there's no mod shop.

The tank parts shops sells the best engine you can buy and it can be modded
twice to improve it even further. Don't buy the main gun unless you really
need it because you'll find the same one for free in the next but one dungeon.
In fact, you'll find a lot of new tank weapons in the next two dungeons and
the only gun to consider buying is the Dragon Burner Sub gun.

Walk over the bridges to the other part of town where they sell two excellent
weapons for Hunter and Soldier, and the Top-Off Drink which heals all HP. Buy
at least three of these! The Hunter's Office is inside the building in the
centre of the town and there's the usual Memory Centre as well as a Level
Check computer and a new wanted poster. Go down the stairs to find the
Transfer Centre.

Inside the bar you'll find an upgraded Flog Race machine next to the Jukebox,
allowing you to bet 250G and win 500G! The Inn has a VIP room with a man
blocking the door so you can't check for items unless you pay the price, but
there's absolutely nothing to find so don't waste your money. Massage man is
standing at the right, next to the counter. The house at the north has a
basement but the wooden crates are empty.

The story of this place is that there's a difficult child who won't do what
he's told and keeps setting fires. The boy is found standing near the fence at
the southeast corner of town, but he won't move. Also, when you use the Metal
Detector outside the town you'll notice a flashing light indicating a hidden
item in the middle of the lower fence, but you cannot reach it. Someone points
you in the direction of the house and Ghost Base to the north, and that's the
next destination.

NOTE: According to Metal Maniax the Metal Detector item is another tank
weapon, the [サンダーブラスト] - THUNDER BLASTER. Your task might seem to find a
way to get the boy to move, but even after he does, I still couldn't reach
this item. Please let me know if you find a way to do so! (Using the Detector
inside the confines of the town reveals nothing.)

SPECIAL
TANK 8   : [Kタイガー] -  WHITE TIGER
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Acid ants lurk in the area to the north as you approach the Ghost Base,
however you will discover some new enemies too, most notably a dirty yellow
version of the Sonic Snake that will target your tank parts and quickly
disable them, at least necessitating repairs. To avoid having to carry repair
kits or keep returning to a town, buy the Mechanic's Kit at Hell's Gate West
village. Although expensive it allows Robin to repair many parts although not
ones that are completely broken. Equip a good Sub gun that targets groups
(such as the Dragon Burner) to Hunter's tank and he can take out all these
enemies before they do any damage.

Spend some time fighting close to the house and base to find a slightly
different kind of vehicle called a Missile Trailer,:looking like a truck with
sloping silver missiles lined up. You'll also encounter bright green pots on
wonky legs and the rare Gasoline Caiman. None of these enemies pose any threat
but it's fun to find them all! The house is surrounded with fences so you
cannot enter and must go inside the larger building.

You MUST bring lots of Para-Nons, Top-Off Drinks, and spare protectors.
Even with good armour and at Level 25 this was tough going on foot. Make sure
your party are kept in good health because you never know when you might be
involved in a sneak attack by four GI Skeleton enemies and they can take you
out fast.


-------
Floor 1
-------
Once inside you'll meet yet more new enemies. The green bazooka wielding Army
zombie MIGHT drop a rare and powerful sword and this is the only source for
that weapon. In MMR and later games there was a better chance of getting an
item if you fought for 4 rounds, but I don't think that works in this game. I
obtained the sword when fighting these enemies on foot and it might be that
non-machine enemies give up their items if you're on foot rather than in
tanks, and tank type enemies require you to defeat them in tanks.

Stay inside your tanks for now, and cross the factory floor to the far left.
(The computers don't work and there's nothing else to find.) Drive down to the
lower wall and go right, travelling over a series of stools set between the
moving conveyor belt and the south wall. At the end you'll find a wooden crate
that contains a tank weapon: [トマトタイフーン] - TOMATO TYPHOON. It weighs in
at 4.01t so you'll need some spare capacity. This SE gun targets ALL enemies
with 420 attack power, and what makes it so strong is its high defence of 400.
One thing to notice about your tanks is that the Red Wolf can have TWO SE
weapons but one of them will take up a Main Gun or Sub Gun slot. You can
choose which way to do it on the equip screen.

The large opening at the top right of the main floor takes you to some stairs
and that means fighting on foot. There's a ramp at the top left corner of the
floor which takes your tanks down to yet another ramp and the lower floors.


-------
Floor 4
-------
Climb the stairs from the upper right area of the main floor and keep going to
the top floor, where you'll find three strange people hanging around the beds.
Go into the small room (the door isn't locked) and open the wooden chest at
the lower left corner to find a [ぼうだんチョッキ] - BULLETPROOF VEST. That's
all, so return back down the stairs. You can head down to B1 but all you'll
find there is a single blue odd person to talk to and an empty room at the end
of a conveyor belt. While exploring on foot be VERY careful! The enemies can
easily destroy a protector with one hit or remove nearly all HP from anyone
with compromised equipment. Check the protectors (you'll see the name appear
if one gets broken) and heal HP with Top-Off Drinks. The bright blue Virus Bat
might paralyse someone, so heal that with a Para-Non.


----------
Basement 1
----------
You'll have noticed a square room near where you found the tank weapon, with
stairs inside, but no access from this floor. It also has stairs that lead up
onto the conveyor belt that snakes across this floor. To find a way into this
room you need to drive down to the basement.

Drive to the upper left of the corridor on Floor 1 and down the ramp to the
basement. Although there's a ramp leading down to the next floor, ignore that,
and drive all the way to the south side of this floor. Go up into the room
with another conveyor and make your way around the moving belt to the lower
right side of the floor. Here you can get out of your tanks and cross the
barrier to climb the stairs back to F1. (If you get on the conveyor here, it
just drops you off onto the floor and leads nowhere.) Now you can climb the
ladder and get onto the long conveyor belt. Stay on it to the end where you'll
drop into a dark hole and end up on the upper belt on B1 again. Stay on this
conveyor until you are unceremoniously dumped off it into a hole and you'll
land inside the bottom floor.


----------
Basement 2
----------
This floor has lots of empty wooden crates and a computer screen to the left
of where you arrive. Fortunately you won't find any enemies. (There is a ramp
leading up to the previous floor if you walk all the way along the wide
corridor to the right, but leave this for now.) Examine the computer and
select OPEN to open the door to your left. Go through and you'll find a tank!
Examine the tank and claim and name it.

o---------o----------------o
|         |                |
| T A N K |  WHITE TIGER   |
|         |                |
o---------o----------------o

This pretty blue tank is the very best in the game and it joins you with
1600/1810 SP and some great equipment, except for the C Unit which really
needs replacing with a better one. It has a magazine capacity for 128 shells
and is equipped with a Main Gun [180ミリスパルク] -  180MM SPARK, the
[スキャンレーザー] - LASER SCANNING Sub Gun as well as an SE Gun
[LIピーナッツ] - LI PEANUTS. The engine is the excellent
[ロケットカルメン] - ROCKET CARMEN, and finally, that low-grade C Unit, the
[ウォズニアクII] - WOZNIAK II.

Now, there are some things to be careful about. Don't be tempted to climb up
the stairs in the lower left corner of this floor! That will take you up to
the main floor and a quick exit from the Base back to the world map. If you
took that option you'd be left with no tanks and have to walk all the way back
down here, fighting at you go. If you climb the ladder at the top of the room
(heading up from the tank) you'll be on a conveyor belt that takes you to a
ramp back up to B1, the floor where you left your tanks.

Enter the tank and drive back through the open door and along the corridor to
the right, and up the ramp. Go up the next ramp and you'll be inside a small
parking bay that seems to lead to the world map. But in fact it takes you to
the small house near the base.


-----
HOUSE
-----
Drive right from the parking bay and Examine the small notice on the south
wall of the house. This is an entry computer screen, so move the cursor to
select OPEN, and the compound gate opens allowing you to leave and enter again
from the world map. Leave your tanks outside and cross the threshold to enter
the house. Talk to Dr. Optica (that's his name in MMR and in Metal Saga) and
he'll ask you a question. If you have THREE lenses he will assemble a weapon
for you!

At the back of room is a weapon testing range where you can fight some
security camera enemies and test out your new weapon, when you get it. At this
point you'll only have two of the three lenses required.

For now, leave the house and go back inside the Ghost Base to collect the rest
of your tanks where you left them on B1. Simply drive down the first corridor
and then, all the way left, and up, to find the ramp down. If you don't want
to do this now, you'll find that you don't have a Dog System and will have to
drive back to Canabelle, which doesn't sell them! Anyway, it might be worth
while if you need to stock up on items again. Once you reach your tanks you
can tow one of them and use the Dog System to leave the Base.

Once you have the three best tanks in the game it's time to do some serious
modding and buying. Of course, you'll need plenty of cash for this and
defeating the Rommel Ghost wanted enemy will help. There is yet another free
Main gun to find on the world map, as well as more tank parts inside the next
dungeon, so maybe wait until you've found everything before deciding what new
things you need.


LASER BAZOOKA
メガネのレンズ - Glasses Lens
ルビーのレンズ - Ruby Lens
カメラのレンズ - Camera Lens
たいようのレンズ - Solar Lens

You need at least three of the lenses in the Tools inventory. Visit the
Doctor, talk to him and keep saying Yes, and eventually he'll show you a
picture of his design for the Bazooka Laser gun! Use the D pad to move the
cursor over the gun, selecting one of four positions. He'll ask you to do that
again, so select a different one until three (or all four when you have all
the lenses) show red. If you choose the first three positions you'll get a gun
that targets ALL enemies at once. Speak to him again and you can change the
arrangement of the lenses with different effects: for example, select the
second three positions, leaving the first one open and your gun targets a
group. Leave the second gap empty and it's an all enemy gun again, but an even
more powerful one! To test out the gun again on the practice range you'll have
to leave the building to the world map and re-enter to re-set the range.

SPECIAL
WANTED 9: [サルモネラほんぽ] - SALMONELLA HQ
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After completing events in the Ghost Base, getting a new tanks and meeting the
scientist, return to Canabelle and you'll notice that the man and woman
outside in the town are both standing by the fence and looking over to the
east. Both of them will tell you that there's a fire! If you don't already
possess the necessary item then move to Santa Poco to buy the special item you
need. It's called the [ハイドロポット] - HYDRO POT and is for sale at 150G in
the Tools Shop there.

From Canabelle drive due east and you'll soon reach the fire. Move close to
the fire and open the Tools menu. Choose the [ハイドロポット] and pick the top
command to "Use" the item. It will work immediately, dousing the flames, and
now you can drive through the dead trees to reach the Scorched Factory. (And
if you keep going east you'll be back at Riorado! )

Before entering the factory find another free weapon on the world map.
Starting from the entrance to the factory go down two trees and then, right
five. Here you've find the [220ミリガイア] - 220MM GAIA. It's a heavy Main
gun with the highest attack power in the game and it cannot be bought from any
shop! Not bad for a freebie.

Enter the factory at the lower right corner. There's an minor enemy hiding in
a precise location before you start exploring inside. Drive right, hugging the
outer wall, staying in the factory compound and not on the world map, and you
can encounter enemies in the narrow space between the factory wall and the
world map. I found a rare blue UFO enemy here.

Diversions aside, this is quite a big place and it's advisable to tackle it in
two stages. First of all, stay in your tanks and find all the accessible
treasure which includes some fantastic tank guns. Either tow a spare tank to
take the additional weight, or remove Armour Tiles if you suddenly find you
can't move because a tank is overloaded.


STAGE ONE - TANK EXPLORATION

-------
Floor 1
-------
This floor is quite big but there's nothing to find and no point exploring it.
Simply drive up, and then left, through a narrow opening and then up, through
another. Don't bother going through the other openings to the left. Drive
right along the upper edge of the floor and you'll find a ramp in the top
right corner that leads down to the basement.


-----------------
Basement 1 - West
-----------------.
If you go left, you'll see a small grey device in the middle of the hallway.
Approach it and it sets off an alarm and you'll be in a battle with various
security devices: two black, one purple and one pink! It's easy enough to
destroy them with your tanks and after that the warning device is broken for
good. Continue left and check out the computer screen. Move the cursor to
switch it ON and the door below you will open. Drive through the doorway and
go left to find another ramp down  There's nothing of interest in the other
rooms. You'll encounter those green Army Zombies enemies and blue security
cameras as well as Virus bats in this part of the B1. If you want to try and
get the drop of the Hungry Sword then fight on foot as this seems to have a
better chance of gaining the weapon. Make sure you have a spare slot for it
though or you'll lose it. (Oops!)

The small room on Basement 2 has a number of empty crates but the single one
at the right has something you want! Open the crate and you'll hear the
triumphal music and receive the [カメラのレンズ] - CAMERA LENS. This is the
third of those lenses that the scientist near the Ghost Factory will use to
make the Laser Bazooka. Drive back up to the previous floor and back along the
top passage to explore the rest of the floor.


-----------------
Basement 1 - East
-----------------
Drive down the ramp in the upper right corner and on the next floor go down
the first set of steps and you'll see a red switch that won't respond to your
attempts to turn it off, and various moving conveyor belts. Go down to the
south wall and drive left to find another ramp in the lower left corner of the
floor which takes you down to a section of Basement 2. There's a line of five
wooden crates to the right of the ramp and the one at the far right has
something inside it! Yes, it's ANOTHER tank weapon, this time a single enemy
Sub gun, the [ビームブラスター] - BEAM BLASTER. Return to the previous floor and
head back to the ramp in the upper right corner.

At this point I ran into the Wanted enemy. He is a random encounter and it
might take a while to trigger his appearance. However, if you're inside tanks
you won't be able to do any damage to him as he seems to disable all your
guns. After a couple of rounds of nothing he ran off!

Continue down another two ramps to Basement 3. Drive down and left, past some
small empty rooms to find a wooden crate. This contains a pretty good Main
gun, the [175ミリキャノン] - 175 MM CANNON. Drive back to the middle of the
floor and use the Lock Hacker on the locked door. Go through and drive left to
find two more wooden crates. The first contains another gun, and this one is
even more powerful. It's the excellent: [195ミリキャノン] - 195 MM CANNON. The
second box has one of my favourite Metal Max weapons: the wonderfully light
Ghost gun: the [165ミリゴースト] - 165MM GHOST. Although it's less powerful
than the other guns you found it's a great back-up weapon to keep as a spare
on one of your tanks. Note that I also found Salmonella inside this locked
area of B3 so he really can appear anywhere.

After amassing this new gun collection leave up the ramp at the left and keep
driving up the next few ramps until you emerge on the ground floor. You're at
the west side of the building and there's a separate exit to the world map.
Leave, sort out your tank weapons and lenses, paying a trip to the house at
the Ghost Base with the rest of the lenses and then return.


STAGE TWO - THE REST!

Make your way up the ground floor and down the ramp at the top left corner to
reach B1. Continue down the next ramp to the upper section of B2. Get out
of your tanks and walk left, and although there's nothing to find this might
trigger another appearance of the Wanted enemy. You should manage better on
foot although you still don't seem to do much damage. But after a couple of
rounds of attacks we killed him. The team was at Level 27 and only the soldier
with the Rocket Punch weapon managed to inflict any damage. He appeared to
have around 6 HP! He hardly did any damage to the team and I'm not too sure
what kinds of attacks he uses, but these are the descriptions from MMR.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The small garage hosts a repair shop just inside the door and a man to the
left will offer a modding service that costs a bomb. He charged 16400G to do
something wonderful to my Red Wolf, but I didn't have the cash to find out!
The cost for the Abrams is only 4400G but he charges 19300G for the Panza. In
fact, it's to improve the engine, so the cost is dependent on which one is
equipped. You can boost each basic engine twice. You'll discover two wanted
posters at the back of the garage and the most powerful Main Gun in the game
is sold here.

The Equipment store can be entered with tanks and you'll find the Hunter's
Office there as well as the Shells Shop and Refill Station. The Bar has
another wanted poster, Juke Box, and you can buy three drinks. You'll find the
Memory Centre inside the inn and two more wanted posters. It's a cheap inn and
the massage man is there as usual. The Mechanic's Kit is worth buying as it
saves on space and can be used to repair a damaged tank part more than once,
although it won't mend a completely broken part.

Fortunately it doesn't have much SP in this version of the game, although it's
still quite a hard nut to crack if you run into it before getting the last
tank or the most powerful weapons. I found that it targeted my Abrams all the
time, destroying its C Unit in the process. Use Armour Piercing Shells and
Hollow Point shells if you have them and just keep pounding away. The team
were at Level 25 and the team was driving the Red Wolf, Panza and and Abrams
tanks. (I'd forgotten that the Abrams still had the weak Wozniak II C Unit and
its main gun failed to make a dent in the Rommel tank.)

EDIT! Answer Yes and then, No, and the blue monster will save your game. You

(Thanks to odino, for translating what I thought was an unexpected alternative
ending to the game.)

When you arrive you'll see that there's a barrier preventing access to the
area to the north, and it's flanked by two small buildings. Enter the right
one on foot, avoiding the red visible monsters for now (although you can
safely talk to the blue one - EDIT!) and you'll discover the last Transfer
Centre. The location will also appear on the Dog System so you can move here
directly with tanks. Fight the optional red monster if you wish.

This enemy hits everyone for anything up to 275 HP depending on the defence
power of your equipment, and it might attack one and kill them outright if
their protector has broken. It is tough to damage and it might take a two of
three rounds, again, depending on your current weapons. I'd suggest waiting
until you've done everything else unless you're in a rush to get to the final
area of the world map.

Inside the left building talk to the red monster and defeat it (it's the same
one) and check out the computer screen at the right. Switch it ON and that's
all you need to do to open the barrier gate. Return to the world map and
simply drive through. There will be an earthquake as you move forwards but
this is nothing to worry about.

TREASURE
Start at the left building of Hell's Gate and count 20 steps to the south.
Stop. and turn to face the west. Count another seven paces and use the Metal
Detector. The spot can also be located by starting out at the west end of the
sandy road. Move one pace to the west and then go south for seven paces. At
the right spot you'll be able to see the edge of the sandy track to the north
of the screen. The tank will be in the middle of the screen between three
footprints or darker sandy spots off to the right, and four footprints to the
left. You'll find the [SOLOMON 2] C Unit! Give this to the White Tiger and
sell off the Wozniak II it came equipped with. Now you have two Solomons as
the Red Wolf had one as its default equipment.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
iii. ヨシダ生命科学研究所 : Yoshida Institute for Life Sciences (Interior)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LOCATION
ONLY accessed via a Transfer Centre
 malfunction.

TREASURE
Vending Machine: [さいせいカプセル] - Revivification Capsule
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Reaching this place is tricky because you have to keep using the transfer
centre and hope for a random malfunction. I tried many times before this
occurred and in the end it happened when I selected Hell's Gate from Riorado.
(Before doing this I'd just accidentally triggered a game save by talking to
the blue monster in Hell's Gate, in case that had any bearing on it, but since
I reloaded the game without using that save, I doubt it. Just thought I'd
mention that in case you're having difficulties with triggering this.)

You'll know when the accident occurs because a message appears on a black
screen and you'll end up inside a tiny transporter room that you won't have
seen before. I am pretty sure that you can only trigger this event after
finding all Transfer Centres and making sure that you have access to the one
in Riorado.

Climb the stairs and open the door to a small room with a single Vending
Machine. (It's not locked.) Examine the machine and you'll receive the only
revive item in the game: the [さいせいカプセル] - REVIVIFICATION CAPSULE. Try it
again and you get nothing, because you can only have one of these at a time.
Leave the building by the front door and exit the compound to the world map,
and it's now open for future business should you require a replacement! You'll
have to walk back to a town to use another Transfer Centre and return to your
tanks. (Negi is the closest one.)


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
iv. 犬の穴 : Hound Cavern [Wanted 11]
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
LOCATION
At the northwest corner of the northern territory.

ENEMIES
Bazooka Dog.

TREASURE
None.

SPECIAL
Level up with ease! You need the Lock Hacker for all the locked gates.
WANTED 11 : [バッド・バルデス ] - BAD VALDEZ
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE: It's worthwhile exploring the Global Relief Centre before coming here
because you'll find the fourth Lens for the Laser Bazooka as well as some very
nice equipment.

Drive west from the Hell's Keep barrier once you've entered the northern area
of the map, and continue until you reach the grass bordering the west mountain
range. From here, drive due north and you'll arrive at a cave opening at the
far north west corner of the world map.

Enter the cave (still in your tanks), and as soon as you go down the entrance
ramp you'll be met by two hounds rushing towards you. You fight them one at a
time, and they aren't hard to defeat, with probably just one blast from a main
gun. Each one gives 5000 experience so this is a nice place to fight, and you
might as well kill them all. Open all the locked gates using the Lock Hacker
and you'll find more hounds inside some of these caves. (Everyone reached
Level 30 by the time I was done putting down the puppies...)

From the entrance ramp drive up the cave to the central passage. Don't bother
crossing the broken ground on foot to the left as it just leads to a dead end.
The top left cavern (1) opens to reveal a ramp down to the next floor. Each
time you open a gate and battle a dog the gate will be closed again afterwards
so it's just a little time consuming finding the Lock Hacker again. However,
this is the most reliable place to level up, because if you leave the cave,
the hounds will all have regenerated! (Six dogs each time gives a total of
30,000 experience points and you'd need to find and kill three Slow Walkers
for that amount!)

 1 (Dog)    2 (Dog)  3 (Empty) 4 (Dog)
 _______________________________

               |
               |__ Ramp from world map

On the next floor you'll discover two more locked gates but no dogs. Open the
gates to talk to three young women that the bad baddie has been keeping
captive, but they don't give you anything or escape from their confinement.

Head to the right and you cannot go any further in your tanks. Walk over the
stony ground and up the steps to the dias where someone is sitting on a throne
guarded by more hounds. He'll talk to you and if you answer YES the girl you
met in the Secret Waterfall Base is brought out from her prison. Yes, this is
the haunt of the ultimate boss of Gomez and Waygelyo. After a fair amount of
chat the battle starts! (Note that he refers to the Red Wolf and the dialogue
is slightly different if you don't have the Red Wolf tank, but the outcome is
the same.)

o-------------------------------------------------------o

He will shoot at one person at a time doing around 300-450 damage and you'll
need some Energy Capsules or Top-Off Drinks to heal that kind of hurt. Only
the soldier was able to damage him to any extent but that's all your need.
Three hits of 350 or so, with Soldier at Level 30, should finish him off.

After the battle, the girl leaves the cave and you can inspect the throne and
the other two locked caves but there's nothing to find. Just pick up your
tanks and drive out of there (or use the Dog System). The girls will be locked
up again so you can release them again if you like, and the dogs are back in
their locked caves on the upper floor. Leave the cavern for the saddest scene
in the game... "sob". After this, that same sad music will play inside the
cavern and the only dogs you'll find are the three inside the locked gates as
the gate to the lower floor remains open. (You can still fight them for more
experience.)

Collect the bounty, modify your tanks to the maximum possible, buy lots of
extra Armour Tiles for the Tank Tools inventory and lots of extra shells as
well as Top-Off drinks and additional protectors for everyone. You should have
plenty of gold by now and you might as well spend it all as there's only one
place left to explore.

See each section for treasure.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE: Defeat the last Wanted enemy in the Hound Cavern before finishing with
this section. I found the equipment on Floor 5 first, and the Solar Lens,
since you have to fight Bad Valdez on foot.

I'd advise obtaining all the treasure, including the stuff in the Basement,
and making sure to destroy the large cannons on F4 and F3 so you avoid getting
your tanks ravaged by their shelling on the route back to the building.
Leave, and refill tanks, changing around equipment to maximise power, boosting
chassis defence and engines, and stocking up on magazine specialist shells and
Tank Tools for every tank. Buy the Alkali Wax item in Canabelle that cures
poison many times over, and the Mechanic's Kit for mending the tanks.

This section of the game is long and so I've divided it into subsections:

1. Part One - Getting Access And Floor 1
2. Part Two - Floors 5 - 2 (Finding Everything!)
3. Part Three - The Basement
4. Part Four - The "Boss"
5. Part Five - Homecoming

1. PART ONE - GETTING ACCESS AND FLOOR 1
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TREASURE
F1:    [たいようのレンズ] - Solar Lens

ENEMIES
None
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Global Relief Centre is situated in the middle of this large northern
area, but it's surrounded with large craters and rocks. To find the location
of the road to the Global Relief Centre (GRC), drive right from Hell's Gate
barrier, keeping next to the fence. At the end of the fence turn north and
drive straight ahead across the empty desert until you reach a sandy track.
Follow this narrow road to the north, and drive up to the building whilst
you're pelted with explosions. You cannot avoid these, and by the time you
reach the base all tanks will have lost all their SP!

Enter the compound and drive to the right, hugging the wall where you'll spot
a crack in the wall. Examine it and you'll be given the option to blast it.
Say YES and you'll fire at that crack, breaking a hole in the wall. You can
also drive around to the back of the building where there's a parking bay and
a locked door, but the Lock Hacker doesn't work on this door. Drive over the
broken wall and investigate this floor. First, go left and open the wooden
crate that's to the right of the main door. You'll hear that special music and
acquire the fourth lens: [たいようのレンズ] - SOLAR LENS. Now you can make an
even more powerful Laser Bazooka!

None of the doors will open with the Lock Hacker and you'll notice that the
central area is bordered with four computer screens, all of which require
something a bit more complicated than simply pressing the ON button! These
control the four red locks on the inner doors to the centre of the floor.
There are two elevators at either side of the floor which go up to floors 2-6,
and no enemies on this floor. Your task is to find the correct passwords for
these four computers. You'll have to explore each floor, although the top
floor has nothing but enemies and a jumping off place for a quick way down to
the ground!

This place is the nerve centre of the Metal Max world, and there's a lot to
see and marvel at as you try to make sense of the remains of the complex
technology that once controlled everything. Although many computer screens are
broken, quite a number are active and you can read various bits of information
on them.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

-------
Floor 5
-------
Take the left elevator up to Floor 5. Once here, drive right, and up into a
narrow room and you'll find two wooden crates. The left one contains a new
weapon, the [TNTパラノイア] - TNT Paranoia, which attacks all enemies and
can only be equipped by Soldier. The other wooden crate contains a clue:
[パスワードのメモ] - PASSWORD MEMO. Select this item from the Tools menu and
you'll read the PASSWORD: 542397.

Drive right, through a large room with large globes and some broken computers.
The ones that aren't broken have messages on the screens but there's nothing
to do. The small room at the right has two more wooden crates. The top left
one contains [ドラゴンスプレー] - DRAGON SPRAY, another free weapon for Soldier,
and the second one contains the best armour in the game for Soldier only: the
[メタリックスーツ] METALLIC SUIT. Use the elevator to descend to Floor 4.


-------
Floor 4
-------
From the right side of the floor, drive up the first narrow room where you'll
see an open doorway to an outer ledge where two cannon await. As soon as you
go through a battle will start. These are the same as those Big Cannon you
fought all that time ago, only this time you'll destroy them in one shot! You
get 2000 Experience and 2 G for the pair. Drive to the left side of the floor,
and you'll find another pair of cannon down a short corridor near the left
elevator. Watch out for the Destroid, a single pink skeletal figure that can
damage a C unit with one hit. Repair it immediately.

Starting again from the right side of the floor, open the first chest inside
the small room next to elevator to find an [SMGウージー] - SMG UZI, not really a
weapon you'll want to use. The adjacent box contains a tank engine, the
[ターボカルメン] - TURBO CARMEN, which can up upgraded once to the Rocket
Carmen, although you may already have done that with a Carmen engine. At least
it's unlikely to overload your tanks too much, given the massive loss of SP on
the way here! Make your way through the debris to the lower middle room where
you'll find an active computer screen standing on its own to the right.
Examine it to find the next password code, PASSWORD: 195874. Take the lift at
the left down to F3.


-------
Floor 3
-------
There are two empty crates next to the lift, but one just to the right has
a [かいふくドリンク] - HEALING DRINK. Go inside the small upper room to find a
second wooden crate with a [44マグナム] - MAGNUM 44, which is yet another weak
weapon you don't need. Defeat the two cannon on the ledge above this room and
carry on to the right of the floor, ignoring the lower room with the computers
as they are all dead. Another small room has two wooden crates with the first
supplying some Armour Tiles, [タイルパックL] - L-PLATE PACK, and the second an
[エナジーカプセル] - ENERGY CAPSULE. Part of the floor isn't accessible just
yet, so park your tanks next to the stairs and climb up. (These stairs are to
the right of a long wooden bench and to the left of a small hall with more
stairs, and a shut door)

You're back on F4 where you'll find another small hall with a single computer
screen. This time there's a different message which isn't numerical... Anyway,
take a look but you cannot interact with the screen. Go down the stairs back
to F3 and walk through the door, which doesn't need a Lock Hacker! Open the
crate at the left of this new room and you'll find a special item: the
[ちぞめのてちょう] - BLOODSTAINED NOTEBOOK. Use this from the Tools menu and
you'll see lots of text with some numbers: 1, 4 and 1 and lots of exclamation
marks! Investigate the computer screen at the back left of this room to find
another PASSWORD: 519982. Return the way you came, back to your tanks and take
the left elevator down to F2.


-------
Floor 2
-------
There's another [かいふくドリンク] - HEALING DRINK inside the wooden crate to
the right side of the elevator. Drive down into the lower room and edge right
to stop in front of the computer screen, and find another PASSWORD: 793266.
It's easy to miss this one and think you cannot reach it because of the
furniture. Be very cautious on this floor because you'll encounter the
SuperconductivityX, a yellow blob that will completely disable a tank part:
probably the C Unit, and you won't be able to mend it. The best cure is
prevention and targeting them immediately as well as equipping tanks with the
Magnetic Barrier tool. They also duplicate, like the DNA Blobs and you could
be faced with a number of them if you don't kill them off fast. One way to
prevent tank damage is to have everyone fight on foot, getting out their tanks
at the start of the battle. This is especially effective with the Soldier
firing the Laser Bazooka since she can kill them all with one shot! If a tank
is damaged beyond repair then have the Soldier fight on foot and tow the tank
if you're not ready to leave.

You'll spot a wooden crate with something inside it to the right of the
upper section of the floor, nestling next to the wall. This contains the
intriguing item: [けんきゅうノート] - RESEARCH NOTES, which you can use and
"read" and it tells about the purpose of the facility. Finally, go right, and
open the two crates near the lift to find a [DDパイナップル] - DD PINEAPPLE
and [バズーカほう] - BAZOOKA in the lower one.


--------
Floor 1
-------
When the correct code is used on the correct screen you'll see a reassuring
OK! (And one of the red lights on the locked doors will turn off.)

o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o
| PASSWORD CODES (These are always the same in every game.)                  |
|----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
| FIND | CODE   | DETAILS                                            | ORDER |

| F4   | 195874 | Bottom left screen password! (SW)                  |  4    |
o----------------------------------------------------------------------------o

Return to this floor when you have collected all the passwords from the upper
floors. Search for these on your own, for more fun, or check the walkthrough
for each floor if you get stuck. Each of the password numbers will deactivate
one of the four red lights on the locked doors. Go to each of the four
computer screens and input the correct code. If you get it wrong you'll have
to fight a single Robo Police. The tricky part here is knowing both the order
to use the passwords and the correct console to use them with. You CAN use
them on different screens and not get a battle so think you're doing quite
well, when in fact you're not. You must see the OK message to confirm that
you've got it right!

After unlocking the four locks, enter the control room and move forwards onto
the platform at the back of the room. This directly moves you down to the
basement. I'd had enough by this point, with one tank out of action, and
decided to retreat before continuing. In fact that's probably a good point to
leave because there are a number of additional tank weapons to find that might
seriously overload your tanks.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. PART THREE - THE BASEMENT
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TREASURE
B1:    [1037G]
B1:    [5265G]
B1:    [タイルパックL] Tile Pack L
B1:    [V100コング] - V100 Kong

B2:    [1012G]
B2:    [バトルナックル] Battle Knuckles
B2:    [レーンサイクロン] - Rain Cyclon

ENEMIES
Manlion, Berzerker, SuperconductivityX, Beam Sceptre, Dripping Kiwi,
Kiwi Dropper
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ideally, tow a fourth tank which you can use to store additional Tile Packs
and tank parts. That allows you to juggle tank parts more easily when you find
the new ones. You also need a Mechanic's Kit and the Magnetic Barrier -
[でんじバリア] (bought in Audrey, Rocco or Il Migra) on all your tanks, together
with plenty of spare LL-Plate Packs.

If you fall down one of the openings in the floor you end up on the floor
below. Just drive to the ramp in the centre of the area and back up. You'll
meet a very pretty purple centipede type enemy down here. It's a version of
the Mukadelon Wanted enemy you fought inside Sol sewers, called the Manlion in
MMR. You'll also run into a green version of the Robo-Police. However, these
enemies aren't too much of a problem, it's the massed ranks of those yellow
SuperconductiviyX enemies that will mess you up. I forgot to switch on the
Magnetic Barrier or fight on foot and kept getting my C Units broken by them.
It's really annoying because you cannot move if that happens. The best thing
is to escape with Dog System and head home for repairs.

By the way, you can check for damage on the Status Screen by selecting the
third option to get to the overall tank parts menu, and then choose the bottom
option on the second row. That will display all damaged parts so you know why
your tanks won't move!

Head to the right and down and there is a wooden box just in front of a black
hole in the ground. Open this to obtain some cash: [1037 GOLD]. The second box
looks tempting but if you approach it you'll be sucked down into the hole.
Look more closely and you'll see the moving sand on all four sides of the
hole, blocking the way forwards. Turn around and go back to the lift and make
your way down down the left side of the cavern, through two open gateways.

There's another sand sucking hole to the south, but you can avoid this one by
keeping close to the cave wall as you edge around to the right. Open the
visible wooden chest from the north or east sides to avoid the sand. This
contains a handy [タイルパックL] - Tile Pack L. Continue to the right and open
that other wooden chest safely. It's worth the effort because it contains the
best engine in the game: [V100コング] - V100 Kong.

Retrace your steps (or tracks), and back up to the entrance of the area and go
left and down through the two open gates again to the south. This time go
left, and up around to the right where you'll find the final wooden box. You
cannot approach it from the right side because of the moving sand. This
contains a variable amount of cash: [5265 GOLD].

Continue up the passage out of the cave and into a grey walled room where
there are two Guardian enemies. They are easy to destroy, and in fact, if you
have the Thunderstorm Autogun you can probably do so without even using Main
Guns, although that would mean renting a tank. After this battle my team were
all at Level 32.

o------------------------------------------------------------o
| Guardian x2                                  Basement GRC  |
|------------------------------------------------------------|
| Drops       | 700 gold  (each)                             |

| Attacks     | Fires a blaster one), fires a heat beam (all)|
o------------------------------------------------------------o

After defeating the two Guardians, head left down the ramp. There are still
battles down here. Follow the passage past two locked doors until your tanks
have to stop. Get out and climb down the stairs. Walk left to find a single
computer screen where you can switch the power ON. This opens both sets of
doors on the previous floor. Return to your tanks and first drive through the
left door. You'll discover four wooden boxes in here containing a free
fantastic Main Gun, amongst other good things. From left to right they yield:
[220ミリガイア] - GAIA 220 MM, [1012 GOLD], [バトルナックル] - BATTLE KNUCKLES
(hand armour), and yet another weapon, the SE [レーンサイクロン] - RAIN CYCLONE.
This is a brilliant SE weapon that targets all enemies.

By this stage it might be sensible to leave, as with all this additional
stuff now would be a good time to consider a different tank and character
equipment set-up for the final stages of the game. But, if you heeded my
suggestion to bring along a spare tank you can simply transfer excess parts to
that, and carry on.

Enter the second open doorway to find the elevator down to the next floor.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4. PART FOUR - THE "BOSS"
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
TREASURE
None.

ENEMIES
Code Golem.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

BASEMENT 3
Sirens wail as you drive between massed ranks of computers and you'll also be
assailed by some fancy new enemies called Code Golem, they really are golem
shapes dripping with some green and pink weirdness. There's nothing else to
find down here, so drive up the central path to face... something chatty!
After a while you'll get the option to say yes and face a yellow wall thing.


o------------o
| Cyber Wall |
o------------o
The wall attacks all tanks doing around 250 SP damage or more to them all
and disabling them. Only Hunter was able to do much at these levels, so use
your Main gun and shells on it because you'll need your SE guns later.
Fortunately it doesn't have much HP so you should manage to destroy it fairly
quickly.

o---------------------o
| Guardian Golems x 2 |
o---------------------o
These are easier to defeat with just Main guns. One blast on each one will
kill it, although your tanks will still suffer some damage before you can
finish them off.

After this battle there's a bit more chat and another chance to say yes or no,
but it doesn't make any difference and there's no chance to restore SP or
repair your tanks.

o----------o
| N O A H  |
o----------o
He's very fast, much faster than any of my tanks even though two of them had
no SP left. He also attacks for worrying amounts of damage and by the end of
the battle I had no SP left at all and knew that parts were damaged badly...
However, just keep going, ignoring the damage and attack with Hunter's main
gun and SE gun. Use Hollow Point and Armour Piercing shells with the other two
if you find that their guns are inoperable or not doing much damage. Hunter
should manage 350 - 450 hurt to Noah on each turn, and it took me about 5
turns at Level 32.


------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5. PART FIVE - HOMECOMING
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Whatever the damage might be it won't matter, because your tanks will
automatically roll away from the area and enter the left section of the floor,
where a Transfer Centre has become operational, and it takes tanks! You'll
arrive at a new location, next to a conveyor belt inside a dungeon somewhere,
and you might recognise it. Drive down the steps and head right to find a ramp
up to the next floor, where you'll find another ramp out to the world map.
You'll arrive at the hole near where you destroyed the Big Cannon north of
Negi all that time ago.

Repair serious damage if you need to, but you'll probably find that all your
tanks can move despite some degree of damage to guns and parts. Use the Dog
System to return to Riorado and you can carry on playing for as long as you
like, but you'll never see an ending unless you...

Talk to DAD and select the third option. (If you offer him a lot of Gold at
this point he'll say something different from before, but it's not necessary
to the ending.) Keep saying Yes until the game ends and you'll see all the
Wanted outlaws you defeated and the levels you had when you did. It also shows
all your tanks with their current equipment and your characters too. After
that, there's a another scene and it's officially...

ii. TANKS TO RENT
==============================================================================

Nearly every town has a Tank Rental shop where you can rent out a tank for
free, except that you automatically forfeit half your earnings from monster
Gold. (It won't affect your Bounty rewards, but it does apply to ALL battles
fought in possession of a rented tank.)

They are listed by number and each one has particular equipment already set up
for you. You cannot change this equipment or modify it in any way. You cannot
add anything to any rented tank, not even just a simple Tile Pack Tool! Rented
tanks have 0 SP and you must buy Armour Tiles for them, although you can buy
shells for the magazine. If a rented tank is damaged it will automatically be
lost as it returns itself to the rental shop whilst you are left minus one
tank!

Some of this equipment can be found using the Metal Detector and some things

==============================================================================
i. ENGINES [エンジン]
==============================================================================

The engine determines have much load the tank can carry.  You can equip any
engine to any tank, and the better the engine, the more weight the tank can
take. That, in turn, means that you can equip the more powerful and heavier
weapons.  With a greater load you can have more protection for the tank by
increasing the amount of Armour Tiles , although by how much, is dependent on
the overall weight of everything else that has been equipped.

 DEF = Defence, WGT = Weight

==============================================================================
ii. C-UNITS [Cユニット]
==============================================================================

The C-Unit is the control centre of the tank and different C-Units effect the
overall balance of the tank, changing the defence, evasion and hit ratios. Any
C-Unit can be equipped to any tank. There are fewer C-Units available in Metal
Max than in MMMR, and they don't give stats for HIT and Evasion, however, I've
left those in to show the relative difference between the C-Units.

EV = Evasion, DEF = Defence, WGT = Weight in tons.
.------------------------------.-----.----.-----.------.--------.------------.
| C UNIT                       | HIT | EV | DEF | WGT  | VALUE  | LOCATION   |

iii. MAIN GUNS [主砲]
==============================================================================

Main guns only target one enemy. Although you will use up ammo when you fire
these guns, replacements only cost 5G per shell. Ammunition cannot be
increased but guns have quite a lot more than in MMR (where you could increase
the amount) so you shouldn't run out too often.


POW = Power, DEF = Defence, AM = Ammo, WGT = Weight in Tons.
Ammo might be different, and you can mod Ammo to increase it...

==============================================================================
iv. AUTOGUNS (Auxiliary Guns) [副砲]
==============================================================================

These autoguns (also called Auxiliary Guns, or Sub Guns) all have infinite
ammunition and so they cost nothing to fire.  They are weaker in power than
the other guns, but the fact of the zero cost and their low weight makes them
very useful for many battles.  Although most of them attack a single target,
quite a number of them will target groups of enemies

POW = Power, DEF = Defence, WGT = Weight in tons

==============================================================================
v. S-E GUNS (Special Guns)
==============================================================================

These specialist guns are the most expensive to use and have the least
ammunition, but there is a wide range and they are both versatile and very
powerful. The cost of refilling the ammo varies with each SE gun, but in
general, the more powerful the gun, the more you can expect to pay!

vi. SHELLS
==============================================================================

Different tanks have a different capacity for carrying these additional very
useful shells.  They are selected from the battle menu screen and fired one at
a time.  You can increase the number a tank can carry by asking a chassis mod
mechanic to increase the Magazine size.  Each increase will add another 5
spaces for shells, and add 0.01 tons to the tank's weight.  The cost varies
according to the power of the tank, but it is not a lot, ranging from 38 gold
for the Mosquito to 209 gold for the White Muu.

You can see how many shells each tank has by looking at the tanks menu,
and selecting Shells from the tanks menu screen. You can buy Shells from the
Ammo Dealer in most garages or from Vending Machines and they cost the same in
all locations.

There is no detailed description of the effects of these shells but you can
soon see what happens when you use them.  The most useful ones are the
Piercing Shells and Hollow Charge. Always keep a supply of shells as you
never know when they might be useful. (Making a boss enemy fall asleep is
always satisfying.)

vii. ON-BOARD TOOLS [道具]
==============================================================================

I have grouped these according to their use.  Be aware that each tank can
carry up to 8 On-Board Tools, but that might include Bird Crap or Lead
Mushrooms. Beware of spending too much money on tools that can be washed off.
There is only one tank wash in the game, at Santa Poco, and you won't be able
to get there until you have taken the ferry south from Yuge.

Some tools have to be switched on for them to work, some are automatic, and
others have to be selected when you need, or want to use them.  Most of them
can be bought at the various garage Tools Stores.

G. M E T A L  D E T E C T O R  F I N D S ..............................*METAL

==============================================================================

The Metal and Mine Detector work in exactly the same way, and allow you to
search for items on the world map and dungeons. The only difference between
them is that the Metal Detector has a greater range, and so it is easier to
find things with it. In fact you can find everything without using the
Detector at all, IF you know exactly where to look.

You can first buy the Mine Detector from the Tools Store in Audrey, and the
Metal Detector can be bought in Freeza from the Tools Store that is situated
to the far left of the grassy entrance, before you actually slide over the ice
into the main town.

To use the Detector, either when on foot or in tanks, go to the Tools menu of
the person that carries it, and select to USE.  Then a bleep will sound and
the area is scanned. If there is an item it will flash in red. Sometimes the
item may simply be a mine, and this will cause a small explosion. If it is
something of use, then stand on top of the highlighted area and press EXAMINE
to pick it up. The flashing only lasts for a few seconds, so just use the
detector again if you need to pinpoint the exact spot. Since most items are,
in fact, tank parts, you will need spare capacity to pick up the item, and
this is why it makes sense to travel with a tank in tow, to avoid having to
remove armour tiles if the new part overloads an opertional tank. Check the
named section in the walkthrough for full details.

==============================================================================

I.  E N E M I E S   ................................................. *ENEMY

==============================================================================

Enemies often appear in mixed groups and there can be anything up to eight at
one time. You will always win experience and gold from defeated enemies, but
item drops are very rare so don't rely on those. You'll have to kill a LOT of
frogs before you find your prince. ;)

Descriptions of attacks are based on MMR as the enemies are identical.
Japanese names are given where possible, mostly for enemies that might yield
an item.
