6)                               Special Items                         [SPCL06]
                       |            Health           |
Health comes in crates, and is called Nanotech. Nanotech adds to your current
health. You can often find health with crates of bolts and ammo. In the
single-player mode, Nanotech will restore part of your health, but in online
multiplayer games, Nanotech restores all of your health.

                       |            Bolts            |
Bolts are the equivalence of money in Ratchet: Deadlocked. Use bolts to buy
anything from weapons to weapon mods. Bolts come your way from many places, the
most common is in boxes. Brown wooden crates contain bolts, which can be
collected by breaking open the crate. Special tasks and challenges will also
reward you in bolts, as will defeating enemies.

                       |            Crates           |
There are several different types of crates in R:D, each with an individual
type of result. The boxes contain bolts, ammo, or health. Yellow crates, called
Jackpot Crates, contain bolts, which buy you weapons as stated in the previous
section. Blue boxes with a white cross are filled with health, and green boxes
with yellow circles contain ammo.

                       |           Vendors           |
Vendors come in two different forms, weapons and bot weapons. Weapon vendors
sell you new weapons, as well as ammo for weapons you already own. Bot weapon
vendors sell you the newest in bot technology, and will only be available from
Al's Shop. He will sell you upgrades for your bots.

7)                                  Weapons                            [WPON07]
Weapons in Ratchet: Deadlocked come about after unlocking them after completing
levels. Each weapon has unique qualities, from damage to the amount of ammo
available. Weapons can be upgraded from their original version 1 to version 10,
a much more powerful version, by gaining experience from use. Once a weapon
reaches level 10, the Mega version of that weapon can be bought. Mega weapons
start at level 11 and allow you to level them all the way up to level 99.

The description following the weapon's name explains how the weapon works, and
how it is best used. The place that it is available will explain where you may
first acquire the weapon in the single player mode. The power is gauged on the
pause menu, and it relates to the amount of damage enemies who are hit by the
weapon will take. When weapons reach version 10, they have a new name and will
change to a different, more powerful weapon.

Modifications are earned when you level up a weapon. After each level, a new
mod will be unlocked for you to use. Each weapon has 10 alpha mod slots, and it
is up to you to buy and select these alpha mods for each individual weapon.
There are eight types of omega mods, napalm, time bomb, freeze, mini-bomb,
morph, brainwash, acid, and shock. Only one of these omega mods can be on a
weapon at a single time, compared to the alpha mods which can be a combination
of any mod.

The omega mods are as follows: Napalm, Time Bomb, Freeze, Mini-Bomb, Morph,
Brainwash, Acid, and Shock. The Napalm mod releases lava around the area of
explosion, injuring those who cross it. The Time Bomb mod explodes after coming
into contact with an enemy, injuring those around it. The Freeze mod freezes
enemies and allows them to be killed easier. The Mini-Bomb mod releases bombs
after the original shot has exploded. The Morph mod morphs enemies into farm
animals. The Brainwash mod makes enemies turn on themselves, firing at other
enemies instead of you. The Acid mod injures the enemy even after the shot has
hit them. The Shock mod shocks an enemy and anyone within the area.

The alpha mods are as follows: Speed, Ammo, Aiming, Impact, Area, XP, Jackpot,
NanoLeech. The Speed mod will make the weapon fire at a higher rate. The Ammo
mod will increase the amount of ammo the weapon is able to hold. The Aiming mod
will increase your accuracy. The Impact mod will increase the amount of damage
dealt to an enemy. The Area mod will increase the area of an explosion. The XP
mod will increase the experience gained from killing an enemy by 50%. The
Jackpot mod will increase the amount of bolts gained from killing an enemy by
50%. The NanoLeech mod leeches health off fallen enemies and gives it to you.

                             | Ratchet's Gadgets |
The Swingshot allows Ratchet to traverse over large gaps that he othewise could
not jump over. Look for green glowing orbs in the sky, which you can attach to
and swing onto the other side of an area. Simply jump towards them and press
the R1 button and you will automatically latch onto it. To manually equip the
Swingshot, press [] when in the quick-select menu.

The Grindboots let Ratchet slide down rails as well as ledges. The Grindboots
are automatically activated once you are near a rail. Simply jump on the rail
and the Grindboots will do the rest.

_/Charge Boots\________________________________________________________________
The Charge Boots allow Ratchet to travel at incredible speeds. Simply tap the
L2 button twice and Ratchet will take off in whatever direction he is facing.
Be careful around open ledges or Ratchet may go flying to his death.

_/Gravity Boots\_______________________________________________________________
The Gravity Boots let Ratchet walk on special walls and ceilings, despite
gravity. Simply walk onto an accessable wall and Ratchet will climb it no
matter the angle, automatically.

                               | Bot's Gadgets |
Ratchet may run into an enemy that cannot be damaged because of a forcefield
that surrounds it. Turrets, as well as other landstalkers are examples of
enemies that may have these forcefields around them. Command your bots to throw
an EMP at the enemy, and it will temporarily disable the shield as well as the
enemy itself. The left direction on the d-pad will command your bots to use an

_/Hacker Ray\__________________________________________________________________
The Hacker Ray allows Ratchet's bots to hack special orbs to gain access to
otherwise inaccessable areas in the level. Get near a hackable orb and press
right on the d-pad to command your bots to use the Hacker Ray.

_/Shield Link\_________________________________________________________________
The Shield Link allows one of your bots to put up a temporary shield around
Ratchet, or the other bot. Press right on the d-pad in appropriate situations
to use the Shield Link. It is often used when one bot is using the Hacker Ray,
throwing an EMP, or turning a bolt crank.

_/Bot Grind Cable\_____________________________________________________________
Who needs a rail when you've got bots? The Bot Grind Cable allows your bots to
send out a grind cable from one area to another. This allows Ratchet to pass
over large gaps which he would not be able to pass otherwise. Use the Bot Grind
Cable with the right directional button on the d-pad in appropriate situations.

When bots take damage, the gauge in the middle of the bot commands will fill
up. When it's full, the Ravager attack becomes available to use. Press the up
directional button on the d-pad when the gauge is full to unlease the Ravager
attack on all on-screen enemies.

9)                               Walkthrough                           [WALK09]
Ratchet: Deadlocked starts you off by watching a scene from the popular show
called DreadZone, located in the Shadow Sector. Captain Starshield takes out 3
unsuspecting robots, but is struck down from behind by Ace Hardlight. This is
the basis of the show DreadZone, putting heros in combat situations and seeing
if they live or die.

Just as Sasha calls Ratchet and explains about the disappearing heros, his ship
is boarded, and Ratchet is kidnapped by Gleeman Vox. This begins your time in
the containment area. Al has installed the standard armor and has sent you to a
training course to test it out. This is where you take control of Ratchet and
guide him to victory.

Start by looking at the holotarget on the left by moving the right analog
stick. Next, look right at the holotarget and use the R1 button to fire at it.
When it has disappeared, aim upwards and shoot that holotarget. Jump to the top
of the ledge with the X button to complete the next small task. 3 more
holotargets will appear around the arena, you will need to destroy them all.
The first is directly in front of you, so take him out first. Next, double jump
over the ledge and shoot the next holotarget standing behind it. Turn to the
left and you'll see stairs leading up to the third holotarget. Climb them and
take him out to gain access to the teleporter. It is located at the end of the
arena, use it by pressing /\ while standing on it.

You will be transported to another battle arena after a small cutscene with Vox
telling you about being a contestant on DreadZone. Messages from Clank will
appear at the bottom of your screen, which will help you during your time at

The next arena starts with a bridge over lava, so cross it and go into an open
area. To the right of the arena Bladeballs will come at you. Use R1 to fire
either your Dual Vipers or Magma Cannon at them. When they're all destroyed
another wave of Bladeballs as well as swarmers will come after you. Take them
out and 5 DZ Strikers will appear. These enemies are robots and are more
powerful than the smaller enemies you just faced. Move around to avoid damage
and take them out to trigger a group of Tremors. Tremors are quick, so fire
at them as soon as you see them. Another wave of swarmers will come at you
after the Tremors, dispose of them to get to the next cutscene.

Ratchet as well as Al and Clank have collars fitted around their neck so they
will not be able to escape without exploding. After the cutscene ends go to the
transporter in the middle of the arena to get back to the containment area.
Clank wants you to find Al, and with good reason too. Not only will you see Al
dancing to Courtney Gears, but you'll gain 2 new bots which will help you
during your time in DreadZone. Al is waypointed with a blue and white flashing
star in case you can't find him by sight alone.

Once you've got your bots from Al, you can return to his area to go to the bot
vendor and upgrade them. Now head over to Clank at the other side of the
containment area. After visiting with him, Vox orders you to fight in the
Battledome, so go to the ship on the left side of the area which will take you
to the Battledome.

_/Advanced Qualifier\___________________________________Green Medal, 1500 bolts
You'll start this battle by facing Swarmers and DZ Strikers that jump out of
the dropship. The Magma Cannon is fairly powerful against these early enemies,
and does well with groups of enemies. Use it to take out this first wave, and
watch as one of your bots goes down. When bots take too much damage they'll
fall to the ground, disabled. You can repair them by pressing Down on the
d-pad. Once your bot is repaired, 2 platforms will appear for you to cross the
lava and advance to the next area.

You'll jump down into a lower level of the arena and immedietly be attacked by
Bladeballs and DZ Strikers. Don't worry about getting hurt or using ammo from
either one of your weapons, because there is plenty in boxes in this area.
Once all these enemies have been taken care of, cross the lava on the platforms
but stop short of the next area. There are 3 DZ Strikers here, all of which you
can pick off with some careful shooting. Avoid their fire and take them out
from a safe distance, then jump into the area. Bladeballs will come out of
no where to attack you, so blast them to death. A dropship will drop off 4
Tremors, which can be taken out if you fire directly at the dropship. More
Bladeballs will come after you as another dropship drops off 4 more Tremors.
Use the same strategy to take out these enemies.

Cross to the next area where you will see a bolt crank in the middle of the
battlezone. Bladeballs and Tremors will attack you before you are able to use
the boltcrank. Take these enemies out and press [] to start turning the bolt.
Rotate the left analog stick and you will automatically turn the bolt,
unlocking more platforms that lead to another area. In this next area is a 70mm
Stalker Turret. Jump off the platforms and go directly behind one of the three
barriers, avoiding the turret's fire. Press left on the d-pad for your bot to
throw an EMP at the turret. The EMP will temporarily disable the turret, so be
quick about taking it out. I suggest the Magma Cannon because it has more
power. Once you destroy it, you've completed the qualification course and are
transported back to the containment area.

                                  Weapon:     B-6 Obliterator

_/Grist for the Mill\_____________________________1500 Dread Points, 1000 bolts
Ratchet is thrown into a relatively small arena for a 10-round battle. This is
a basic arena battle with some of the weaker enemies you've seen already. It
starts with DZ Strikers and Swarmers, and by round 5 adds Tremors. Keep moving
and use your Magma Cannon to take out multiple enemies at one time. Each round
is pretty short, and this challenge is over before you know it.

_/The Big Sleep\__________________________________2500 Dread Points, 1500 bolts
This battle is complete with DreadZone's Sleeper Gas, which drains Ratchet's
health slowly throughout the battle. Unfortunetly you won't have much nanotech
by this point in the game, so try and stay in the middle of the arena due to
the health pickups that appear there. DZ Strikers and Swarmers will start off
this battle, with some Bladeballs appearing in the next round. Keep moving in a
circle and breaking open the health crates, and this easy challenge will be
over quick.

_/Valley of Heroes\__________________________________0 Dread Points, 1000 bolts
                   [Unlocked]     Weapon:     Holoshield Launcher
This challenge starts off with a vendor on the right side, so now would be a
good time to buy the B-6 Obliterator or the newly unlocked Holoshield Launcher.
Next, travel down the path into the small canyon where several Bladeballs will
appear. Let your bots take them out so you don't waste ammo. Next, a few DZ
Strikers will fly your way, so use the Dual Vipers to take them out. A 70mm
Stalker Turret is next along the path, so quickly move to the left side of the
path and hide behind the barrier. Use the right button on your d-pad to make
your bots throw an EMP at it. Once it's down, it takes about 4 shots from the
B-6 Obliterator to take it out with help from your bots.

At the edge of the cliff ahead will appear a few Bladeballs and DZ Strikers
will stand in your way. Defeat them and move on to the gap in the path. There
are 2 platforms ahead of you leading the the next area, but they're
electrified. Command your bots to throw an EMP at the platforms to disable the
electricity. It is now safe to jump on them and get to the next area. There is
a large arrow which will launch you to the top of the cliff when you press the
X button on it. After you jump to this area, the mission is complete.

_/On the Prowl\______________________________________0 Dread Points, 1500 bolts
The landstalker is behind enemy forces, so break through them and capture 3
nodes to gain access to it. Go left and drop down to the first node, where
robot zombies will begin to attack you. Press right on the d-pad to command
your bots to capture the node while you shoot at the zombies. The second node
is only accessable if you go left through the field of Robot Zombies and up
the ramp into the tunnel. DZ Strikers and Swarmers will be waiting for you in
this tunnel, so have your favorite weapon out. At the end of the tunnel is a
70mm Stalker Turret. Hide behind one of the many barriers and throw an EMP at
it to disable it. Take it out and capture the node directly behind it. A
dropship will drop off 2 DZ Strikers who temporarily block your way. Blast
through them and continue on. 

Drop down and go straight to the third node. There will be DZ Strikers and
Swarmers guarding it, but after you take them out and capture the node, the
bridge will be extended. Watch for Robot Zombies coming up from the ground as
you travel towards the bridge. Over the bridge will be DZ Strikers, Swarmers,
and more Robot Zombies. Swingshot over the gap, turn right and swingshot over
the second gap to complete the mission.

_/All Aboard the Landstalker\________________________0 Dread Points, 2000 bolts
Take the landstalker out for a spin in this easy mission. You just need to
target the Quasar Orbs, which are the large black circles in your path. There
are 3 in all, all blocking the path you need to travel on. Use the mortars to
take them out, and ignore all other enemies. Nothing is strong enough to
damage the landstalker, so just target the orbs and keep moving. Once you've
broke the first, break the second to the left and go up the hill to get to the
third. Go across the bridge and into the blue light to finish the mission.

_/Rise Up\______________________________Green Medal, 0 Dread Points, 2500 bolts
This battle is five rounds in a very small arena. The main enemy are Robot
Zombies, with a few DZ Strikers in the third round. Keep moving and only worry
about your health, since ammo is scattered around everywhere. Stand in the
middle of the arena if needed, no zombies will emerge from there. Once the five
rounds are complete, you won't have enough Dread Points to unlock the next
planet, so complete the one of the Dread Challenges to unlock it.

_/Hoverbike Madness\______________________________1500 Dread Points, 1000 bolts
Use the hoverbike to go through checkpoints within the time limits. There are
40 checkpoints, and you have 48 seconds to go through them all. After each
checkpoint, you gain a few seconds onto your time. Use the R1 button to shoot
the barrels so you won't run into them and lose time and health. Once you pass
this mission you'll have enough Dread Points to unlock Sarathos.

                     [Unlocked]     Planet:     Sarathos

_/Destruction Derby\______________________________2000 Dread Points, 1500 bolts
Take the landstalker out again, but this time your target is a set number of
enemies. You have 1:30 to take out 56 enemies of any kind. Start by taking out
the 70mm Stalker Turrets because they will do the most damage to the
landstalker. Enemies will pop up all around you, so keep unleashing mortars
and hold down the fire button and this challenge will go by fast. Don't forget
the take out the groups of Swarmers that sometimes come up behind you, they
count as enemies as well and can boost your kill count. Take out the 56 enemies
and this mission is completed.

_/Monuments of Death\_____________________________2500 Dread Points, 2000 bolts
There are three ancient statues that you'll need to destroy in this challenge.
The first one is straight ahead of you, guarded by Robot Zombies. Use the
right button on the d-pad to command your bots to plant explosives on the
statues, which will automatically blow up once the explosives are set. Follow
the path to the blue and white star to find the next statue, and do the same
thing as the first statue. Make your bots plant explosives and fight off the
Robot Zombies as the pop up from the ground. Once you've taken out all 3 of the
ancient statues, this challenge as well as planet is completed.

_/Alien Soil\________________________________________0 Dread Points, 1500 bolts
                   [Unlocked]     Weapon:     Hunter Mine Launcher

You start off facing several Swarmers as well as a Leviathan. Levithans can be
pesky if you let them charge their attack (beam of light from the tail). Keep
shooting at Leviathans to disrupt them, and eventually they'll go down. Once 
the first Leviathan is down, go around the corner to find 2 more. Take them out
and continue forward. On the left is a small swamp where a Leviathan and a few
Swarmers will pop up. On the right a Leviathan tail will come out of the same
type of small swamp. Use the B-6 Obliterator on these two groups to take them
out. Command your bots to hack 2 orbs, which triggers Swarmers and a Leviathan
to attack you. Go through the door and up the ramp, kill a few Swarmers and see
a Dropship drop off a few DZ Strikers. After you kill these enemies, the
mission is complete.

_/Sarathos Sprint\___________________________________0 Dread Points, 2000 bolts
This mission is all about finding the Puma, which is the vehicle you will be
using in the next mission. Start off by going down the ramp and meeting a
Leviathan head-on. Use the cave as cover and launch the B-6 Obliterator at it.
Some Swarmers will appear before you advance to the next area, which contains a
70mm Stalker Turret. Take cover behind something and make your bots disable it
with an EMP. The B-6 Obliterator works well taking out the turret quickly, but
the Magma Cannon is also a good choice. Along with the turret, there are a few
DZ Strikers, 2 Leviathans, and some annoying Swamers. Both weapons (B6 and
Magma) are good crowd control weapons, so use either freely in taking out this
group of enemies.

Hack 2 orbs by pressing the right button on your d-pad, and jump up to the next
area. There's health, ammo, and Swarmers here. Take out the enemies then get
the ammo and health. Go up another small hill and take out some Swarmers on the
way, ignore the dropship for now. At the top of the hill is a Leviathan, feel
free to go back down the hill a bit to take cover. Because the Leviathan's
attacks can't hit you from up on the top of the hill, this is a good place to
wait out the beam of light it shoots at you. Take care of it and go down the
other side of the hill to find some DZ Strikers. Past them is a double
swingshot, followed by another 70mm Stalker Turret. Again, take cover and let
your bots do the prep work. A Dropship and some Swarmers will appear, so use a
crowd control weapon to take out the turret and enemies. Hack 2 orbs and hold
off some Swarmers and DZ Strikers as the mission ends.

_/Where the Leviathans Roam\_________________________0 Dread Points, 2500 bolts
This mission is done within the Puma, so learn the controls as they pop up onto
the screen before you start. This challenge can be as long or as short as you
want it to be. You'll need to capture 3 nodes before unlocking the arena where
the next challenge takes place. Killing enemies in the Puma is all choice, and
can easily be skipped if you don't need the bolts or don't have a lot of time.
The 3 nodes are waypointed around your map with blue and white stars, so head
towards any one of them. When you arrive, there will be a bolt which you can
command your bot to turn. Stay in your Puma and provide a bit of cover fire.
When your bot is finished, move onto the next node. After 3 nodes the arena
opens, so drive there and complete the mission.

_/King of the Leviathans\_______________Green Medal, 0 Dread Points, 3000 bolts
Start by hacking 7 orbs located around a small swamp in the middle of the
arena. Make your bots hack the orbs while you defeat the enemies around the
arena. Killing these enemies now keeps them from distracting you when you have
to defeat the King Leviathan. When all orbs have been hacked, the King
Leviathan will appear out of the swamp and shoot a laser from it's tail. Avoid
this and it will jump out and shoot at you some more. Try to run the same way
that the beam is traveling, as to avoid it. Getting behind it will also work
fairly well. Use all your strongest ammo on the King Leviathan, because the
mission will end after you defeat it.

_/Check Me Out\___________________________________2000 Dread Points, 1000 bolts
Use the hoverbike to go through each gate in the time limit. There are 34
checkpoints and you have 53 seconds. There's no need to go fast in this one
because it's pretty easy, just stay away from the exploding barrels. Hold down
the fire button to clear barrels away from each checkpoint. After completing
all 34 checkpoints, the mission is accomplished.

_/Swamp Fever\____________________________________5000 Dread Points, 2500 bolts
Use the Landstalker to take out a certain number of Leviathans. There are 23
Leviathans, and you have 3:14 to kill them all. The Leviathans are marked with
red dots on your map, and there's more Leviathans around then you need to kill.
Use the mortars and keep moving, and this challenge should be completed rather

_/Infiltrate the Cathedral\__________________________0 Dread Points, 1500 bolts
                   [Unlocked]     Weapon:     Fusion Rifle

Start this mission by moving forward towards an group of DZ Strikers, Swarmers,
and Cycloids. You can pick the DZ Strikers off from a distance with the Fusion
Rifle if you've just bought it, but they can be disposed of just as easy with
any of your other weapons. Take the turret in near the DZ Strikers if you need
to conserve ammo, or are having trouble. Keep on the path where more Swarmers
will pop up at you, as well as a dropship with several DZ Strikers. Just after
you take these enemies out, another dropship will drop off more DZ Strikers
and Tremors. Keep backing up and shooting as the Tremors come quickly after you
and deal out fast damage. Use the Holoshield Launcher if necessary.

Near this area is another turret, which helps greatly with the Tremors. Next,
travel into the arena where you'll meet a new enemy: an Executioner.
Executioners are the most powerful enemy at this point in the game, both hard
to kill and deal a lot of damage when you're hit. Their primary attack is
swinging their wrench and sending a pulse out at you. Use the Holoshield
Launcher in the arena so you can see what you're in for. Or you could keep
moving and take it out with a few shots from the Fusion Rifle. Along with the
Executioner are Swarmers and Cycloids. Take these out and move on.

Come up to the edge of a cliff to make 2 DZ Strikers fly up from below. Again
the Holoshield will work wonders here, or you can take your chances dodging
their shots. Press the right button on the d-pad to make your bots use the
Cable Launcher to get you to the other side. There will be Swarmers and DZ
Strikers with a dropship awaiting you on the other side. Make your bots hack
the 2 orbs while you avoid the enemies. Once the orbs have been hacked, the
mission is completed.

_/Introducing Shellshock\____________________________0 Dread Points, 2000 bolts
Jump onto the cable and slide into the arena where you'll meet Shellshock for
the first time. Shellshock has one major attack that he'll use on you, which is
launching rockets. The rockets will fall all around the arena, so avoid the
targets on the ground. When the targets are red then the rocket is about to
land on it. Keep moving in circles around the arena, keeping an eye on the
ground as to avoid rockets falling. The Fusion Rifle works very well because of
the power it has. Use your most powerful weapons against Shellshock because
when he's got about 1/3 of his health left he'll take off. In his place a
dropship will come and drop off a few DZ Strikers, Tremors, and Swarmers. Once
you take them out, the same thing will happen. After taking out the second
dropship and set of enemies, the mission is over.

_/Enemies are Such a Grind\__________________________0 Dread Points, 2500 bolts
Start off by moving forward, where a door will open revealing 3 Cycloids.
Quickly take them out with the Magma Cannon, or any other crowd controlling
weapon. Next, go up the elevator where Swarmers and DZ Strikers will await. Let
your bots handle the Swarmers as you aim for the DZ Strikers up on the ledges.
The Holoshield Launcher can be deployed as soon as you get off the elevator,
making this part very easy. Continue forward and double swingshot to the next
area. Use the grind rail on the right, avoid the metal circles that will get
in your path. Jump to appropriate rails as to avoid the end of rails. DZ
Strikers will appear both flying next to the rails and on platforms. Jump to
avoid their shots and use the Dual Raptors to take them out. Eventually you
will get to a double swingshot, so keep your eyes open for it. After this
section, you'll get to the end of the rail and the end of the mission.

_/Infiltrate the Cathedral, Part 2\__________________0 Dread Points, 3000 bolts
As soon as this mission starts, Swarmers will come at you like crazy. Throw up
a Holoshield and let it gain experience as it knocks them off. Equip the shock
mod with it if you've bought it. When the Swarmers have been taken care of, a
lift will come down the 3 DZ Strikers on it. Use another Holoshield and take
them out so you can use the lift to get up to the next area. There will be more
DZ Strikers up here, followed by a swingshot. Use the swingshot and go left
where a dropship, DZ Strikers, and more Swarmers will await you. After taking
these enemies out, another dropship will unload the same enemies.

Jump up to the platform where an Executioner awaits. Keep moving in circles
around him while firing at the same time. In the next area 2 dropships and an
enemy on a turret will fire at you. Quickly take out the enemy on the turret to
avoid damage from the dropships. When these enemies have been taken out, access
to the arena will be granted as the door drops. 2 Executioners wait for you in
the arena, so use your most powerful weapon because the mission is almost over.
Another door drops and releases Cycloids, DZ Strikers, and Tremors. You'll need
to hack 2 orbs, so command your bots to do it for you. Stay alive until the
orbs have been hacked, which is what ends the mission.

_/Shellshock Returns!\_______________________________0 Dread Points, 2000 bolts
This Shellshock battle is a lot like the first time you met with him. He will
start with a shockwave attack, and a simple double-jump will avoid this. Next
he will move onto small bombs which will explode all around you. Again jumping
will save you health, don't both with Holoshields as the bombs come from all
angles. Shellshock will then take a direct shot at you, easily avoided if you
keep moving. His final attack before he starts over is the rocket attack seen
in the previous battle. Avoid the red targets on the ground and you'll be safe.
The Fusion Rifle will take Shellshock's health down dramatically, which
triggers his exit from the arena. The Magma Cannon also works well due to
Shellshock's large stature and the Magma Cannon's area of impact. After you've
taken down Shellshock, Cycloids will stand in your way of completing the
mission. Take them out, as they're nothing compared to Shellshock.

_/Fight to the Cathedral\____________________________0 Dread Points, 3500 bolts
Start off by going forward to meet up with a few DZ Strikers, a dropship, and a
70mm Stalker Turret. Take cover as your bots throw an EMP at it. Take out the
enemies in this area and hop onto the grind rail. Jump from rail to rail
avoiding the red ends of rails. When you get off the first rail, a few DZ
Strikers will be waiting for you. Hop onto the next rail, and another one after
that, and yet another one after that. Avoid the DZ Strikers shooting at you
while jumping from rail to rail to avoid falling. After the end of this last
rail, the mission will end.

_/Showdown with Shellshock\_____________Green Medal, 0 Dread Points, 6000 bolts
Move forward where you'll find DZ Strikers protecting a bolt crank. Let your
bots take care of the bolt crank while you destroy the enemies in the area.
Shellshock will appear from above, but will leave when he has about 1/3 of his
health still left. Use the Fusion Rifle to dramatically lower his health while
running in circles to avoid his attacks.

Move onto a similar room filled with Tremors and a bolt crank. Use the same
strategy as before, especially when Shellshock comes down into this area as
well. When you defeat him this time, move onto a double swingshot that leads
you into another area with a bolt crank. Shellshock will appear in this area as
well. He will leave once more as you move onto the final room. This is the last
time you will face Shellshock, so use all your ammo on him. Once you've taken
him down the mission is complete.
