Hello, I am Mareusio, and welcome to my first FAQ!

This FAQ covers all the boss/exterminator fights you have to do in the
game.

I will cover what attacks they have/do, strategies on defeating them,
the requirements you must have to face them, challenges that
involve them, and skill points in their battles. (the attacks don't 
actually have names, I just put names for them.)

Note:

ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzMAREUSIO!!

If the above text doesn't appear as one line, the spacing will look
superbly weirded. Beware. (if you're copying this into Wordpad for 
printing purposes, change the font to Courier New, font size 10.)

 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Name: Shellshock
 
Location: Dark Cathedral of Kronos
 
Requirements: Green Medal x3
              10,000 Dread Points

Skill Points: Raining Shells- On the challenge, "Introducing
                              "Shellshock", use only the Dual Vipers 
                              to defeat him.
          
              Can't Hit Me- On the challenge, "Shellshock Returns",
                            defeat Shellshock without taking any 
                            damage.

              Dizzy- On the challenge, "Showdown with Shellshock", 
                     turn all 3 of the bolt cranks by yourself.

Difficulty: Couch Potato.........Too Easy
            Contestant...............Easy
            Gladiator................Fair
            Hero...................Medium
            Exterminator.............Hard

Attacks: Missile Mutilator
         Plasma Rifle
         Bombing Rush
         Inferno Slam
           
Challenges:
  
Introducing Shellshock
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
   This is the first time you encounter Shellshock. First, you have to
   order your bots to deploy a grind rail so that you can get to the 
   arena. He will be waiting for you on the other side of the arena. He
   will be holding still, waiting for the doors behind you to shut.
   Once he starts running at you, pull out your Dual Vipers, and make
   your Magma Cannon in your tri-select. (defeat him here with only the
   Dual Vipers for a skill point!) If you do not want to get veryclose 
   to him while he does his missile attack, use the vipers. Although I 
   suggest getting very up close and just destroying him with your 
   Magma Cannon, it's your choice. While he's firing missiles at you,
   he will try to shoot at you with his rifle a few times. Simply walk
   sideways whilst shooting him. After doing this for a few minutes,
   his health will be very low, and he will run away. Defeat the 
   incoming enemies from the dropships, and the challenge is over.

Shellshock Returns!               
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ 
   This challenge is just like "Introducing Shellshock", but he gains
   his Bombing Rush and Inferno Slam attack. Just do the exact same 
   thing you did last challenge, making sure to just dodge his 
   missiles whilst shooting him with your Dual Vipers.

Showdown with Shellshock
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Ok, this is it. The final showdown with Shellshock. The objective
   is to destroy Shellshock, and turn 3 bolt cranks. (turn these by 
   yourself for a skill point!) Ok, when you enter the first bolt 
   crank room, you will be met with three enemies. Use your Dual 
   Vipers to take these guys out. Shellshock will then float from the 
   ceiling. Perfect time to start dealing damage on him. Use your
   Pulse Rifle, aim up, and start to shoot him. Once he lands on the
   ground, go up close to him and pound him with your Magma Cannon. 
   Yes, you will get damaged, but this is a fast way to deal damage. 
   Have your bots turn the nodes as you destroy any enemies that 
   come out of the spawn boxes. Get ammo and nanotech if needed. 

     After turning the bolt crank, go to the next room. (go back
   to the vendor room and keep going straight) There will be some
   enemies you have to deal with, take them out with whatever weapon 
   you want. And, again, Shellshock will come out from the ceiling, but
   with his health re-charged. Do the same technique you did last time,
   just draining away his health while he floats down, then pounding
   him with some close-range weapons. He will run away into the ceiling 
   again, and you will be met up with some enemies. Simply order your 
   bots to spin the bolt crank while you take out the baddies. 

     The same thing will happen in the next room, he comes back,
   you drain his health, he runs away. Enemies come, your bots get the
   bolt crank. Time for the last room. Get ready again for Shellshock. 
   Just take out the enemies and wait for Shellshock to come. Take out 
   the last of his health, and watch him fall.

Name: Reactor
 
Location: Battle Arena, Dreadzone Station
 
Requirements: Blue Medal x2
              50,000 Dread Points

Skill Points: Reactionary- Defeat Reactor in under 30 seconds. (do in 
                           challenge mode)

Attacks: Plasma Rifle

         Flaming Ray
         Body Slam
  
Challenges:
 
Reactor Battle
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     Ok, time to face off with the radioactive Reactor. He starts off
   the challenge by running at you, trying to shoot your with his 
   Plasma Rifle. His is about x5 faster than Shellshock's rifle, so 
   just keep side flipping, draining his health with your guns. After 
   he's done  shooting at you, if you don't have 1/3 of his HP down, he 
   will do his body slam move, while should only hurt you if you're 
   right next to him. If you're not done dealing a certain amount of 
   damage by then, he will do his Sonic Punch, where he moves super 
   fast towards you. He will be doing his moves over and over until you
   have dealed a certain amount of damage to him. Just jump out of the 
   way of his attacks whilst you continually drain his HP. 

     Once you have dealed a certain amount of damage, he will run to
   the other side of the arena. Chase him down, and he will do his 
   Flaming Ray attack. He sets out strips of blue flames that stay 
   there for a while. Simply jump over them while pounding him with 
   everything you have. He will cycle with all of his attacks, doing 
   his body slam the most. Simply dodge his fire, punches, and rifle 
   while shooting him with everything you have, and eventually he'll 
   fall.

 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Name: Eviscerator
 
Location: Battle Arena, Dreadzone Station

Requirements: Orange Medal x2
              100,000 Dread Points

Skill Points: Eviscerator Raider- Defeat Eviscerator using only the
                                  flail.

Difficulty: Couch Potato...............Fair
            Contestant...............Medium
            Gladiator..................Hard
            Hero.....................Harder

Attacks: Scyther
         Summon
           -Tremors
         Plasma Ray
         Spinning Torpedo

Challenges:

Eviscerator Battle
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     It's time for... EVISCERATOR! That's right, you have to face off
   against the big baddie with razor sharp titanium blades for arms.
   Ouchies! Ok, when you start the challenge, Eviscerator immediately
   comes running towards you, using his Scyther move. Simply keep
   jumping out of the way of his maniacal slashing whilst shooting
   him with your guns. I found using the Hunter Mine Launcher is
   pretty good against him as he's running, as the mines follow him.
   

     He will do a Plasma Ray attack on you after the slashing attack.
   Just strafe to one side, dodging the laser. Whilst shooting, of
   course. He will then do the Scyther, and repeat the attacks.
   

     After dealing a certain amount of damage, he will do his Summon
   attack. He floats into a corner with a shield on, and summons
   three Tremors. Blast away the baddies, and he will rush you yet
   again. 

     He should jump back after a while, and do his Spinning Torpedo. 
   He spins around, launch a bunch of dart looking missiles around. 
   Then, he immediately goes into the Plasma Ray. Again, strafe 
   around the laser whilst shooting, and he will go into his shield 
   again. He will summon the Tremors yet again. Just keep shooting 
   him until he runs into his shield again. Shoot the Tremors, then
   finish the Eviscerator off with a few more shots from your big
   guns.

Name: Ace Hardlight

Location: Battle Arena, Dreadzone Station

Requirements: Black Medal x2
              150,000 Dread Points

Skill Points: Ace in the Hole- Defeat Ace Hardlight without taking any
                               damage.

Difficulty: Couch Potato.............Medium
            Contestant...............Medium
            Gladiator................Medium

Attacks: Stalker Arrow
         Ultra Plasma Rifle
         Shock Grenade
         Clone
 
Challenges:

Ace Hardlight Battle
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯
     This is it, the battle of the highest ranked Exterminator there is.
   Ok, pull out your best weapons, and prepare to fight. Ace'll start
   out the fight by firing at you his Ultra Plasma Rifle. Jump over the
   fire, while shooting him with your Fusion Rifle or other high-powered
   weapon you're carrying in your explosive arsenal. He will then use
   his Shock Grenade. The grenade sits there for about a second, and
   creates a circular shockwave from it. Just jump over the wave. 

     After you have about 1/8 of his health down, he will turn on his 
   shield, regenerate his health, and fire an arrow looking thing that
   stalks you until you do a certain amount of damage to him. After
   firing the arrow, he creates some clones of himself. Get a weapon 
   with a pretty large radius and take them down. (using your Splitter 
   Rifle here is great, as well.) Continously strafe to one side,
   dodging the arrow, shooting Ace's clones. (and him!) The clones 
   disappear after a hit or so from your weapons. 

     He will do the clone and shield thing about two more times. Just 
   keep shooting at him, dodging the arrow, rifle, and grenades until
   he can't regenerate anymore. Once you hear him say "I'm out of
   med-packs!" or something similar to that, that's his last
   regenaration. Keep blasting the sucker until his HP is all the way 
   down.

Challenges:

Dreadzone Season Finale
 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

     This is it, hero. Prove yourself worthy of being the greatest
   exterminator in Dreadzone history. (No, I will not cover the parts
   of this "mission" where you have to destroy the shield generators.)
   Ok, Vox will start out with his Tesla Ray attack. Since he sweeps 
   the electricity streams across the place, jump over it when he 
   moves it towards you. Continue shooting him with your Splitter 
   Rifle while he starts to use his Ghost Summon attack. Kill the 
   ghost enemies with any strong gun with a shock mod, and then 
   immediately start to shoot him. 

       Now, you must do this step carefully. He will continously 
   summon some bug looking bots while floating around the Arena. Use a 
   shock-modded weapon to take out the bots, and immediately shoot him
   with your guns. After doing this for a while, he will put on a
   shield and retreat to the other side of the arena.

      After chasing the little wuss to the other side, he do a Plasma
   Strike attack on you. Dodge the crosshairs that indicate where the
   strikes will land. Continue to shoot him with your high-powered
   weapons while also killing the enemies he summons. Eventually, he
   will do his Exetricity attack. He releases about 6 X's that roll
   around you, making a net of electricity. Simply jump over them
   every time they try to shock you. They explode into a red
   shockwave after a few seconds. Dodge his Junk Clunk and the
   shockwave that follow after. Keep dodging his attacks whilst
   shooting him until his health his down to the very last pixel.
   After you defeat him, enjoy the follow cut-scenes. Enjoy, hero!
