 [*01] \                       - Introduction -
--------\=====================================================================

Players return to Pacific City in Crackdown 2. Buildings and infrastructure 
crumbling, the city is now in shambles. A large insurgent group called Cell 
fight to take control of the city during the day and hordes of lethal mutants 
roam the streets at night. As a biologically enhanced Agent working for 
Pacific City's Agency, it's your job to rid the city of its Freak problem and 
quash the Cell uprising.

This guide to Crackdown 2 comes complete with a Project Sunburst walkthrough 
and maps showing the location of every collectible in the game (all 925 of 
them!) as well every Vehicle and Wingsuit Stunt Ring. You'll also find 
information on weapons, vehicles and a complete list of Xbox 360 achievements.

Note: This guide was written based on the RUTHLESS difficulty level. The 
instructions and strategies contained within will still apply to a campaign 
played on a lower or higher difficulty level, but the amount of damage enemies 
deal and the amount of damage they can sustain may differ from what is 
described in the walkthrough.

 [*03] \                        - Agent Skills -
--------\=====================================================================

You can develop your Agent in five different areas: Agility, Strength, 
Firearms, Explosives and Driving. Each time you level one of these skills your 
Agent will gain new abilities and become more proficient in that area. At the 
time of this writing, the level cap for each skill is five.

-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
 - Agility
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
The Agility skill determines your Agent's running speed and how high he can 
jump. Level the Agility skill by collecting the Agility Orbs and Renegade 
Agility Orbs scattered throughout the city and by completing Rooftop Races and 
Wingsuit Stunt Rings. 

Check out the "Agility Orbs" and "Renegade Orbs" sections of this guide for 
maps showing the locations of all 500 Agility Orbs and 30 Renegade Agility 
Orbs respectively.

Agility 2 - Running speed and jump height increase (about 15 feet).
Agility 3 - Running speed and jump height increase (about 20 feet).
Agility 4 - Running speed and jump height increase (about 25 feet).
Agility 5 - Unlock Wingsuit (hold Y while in the air to activate) and Wingsuit 
Stunt Rings.

-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
 - Strength
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
Your Agent's Strength skill determines his total number of hitpoints as well 
as what objects he can pick up and how far he can throw them. Each Strength 
skill level gained will unlock an additional health bar (denoted by a red 
circle below the red health meter in the top-left corner of the screen) and a 
new skill.

Develop your Agent's Strength skill by killing Freaks and Cell soldiers with 
melee attacks, thrown objects, and the Barge Attack and Ground Strike 
abilities.

Strength 2 - Health increase, ability to lift some heavy objects and wield 
them as weapons
Strength 3 - Health increase, ability to remove and wield turreted weapons
Strength 4 - Health increase, unlock Barge Attack (hold B while sprinting)
Strength 5 - Health increase, unlock Ground Strike (hold B while in mid-air)

-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
 - Firearms
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
Levelling your Agent's Firearms skill requires killing Freaks and Cell 
soldiers with non-explosive weapons. Each time you gain a Firearms skill 
level, new Agency weapons will be unlocked and from then on available whenever 
you deploy your Agent.

Increasing the Firearms skill will also improve your Agent's lock on function 
when targeting enemies.

Firearms 2 - Unlock Assault Rifle, Sniper, UV Shotgun
Firearms 3 - Unlock Ultra SMG, Ultra Shotgun, Machine Gun
Firearms 4 - Ultra Assault Rifle, Harpoon
Firearms 5 - Unlock Turret Machine Gun, AM Sniper

-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
 - Explosives
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
Improve your Agent's Explosives skill to increase the size and impact of 
explosives, as well as unlock grenades and explosive weapons. You can level 
your Agent's Explosives skill by killing Freaks and Cell soldiers with 
grenades, explosive weapons and explosive objects (barrels, canisters, etc.).

Explosives 2 - Unlock UV Grenades, Satchel Charge
Explosives 3 - Unlock Proximity Mines, Flocket Launcher
Explosives 4 - None
Explosives 5 - Unlock Turret Rocket Launcher, Turret Flack

-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
 - Driving
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
Levelling the Driving skill won't offer any enhancements to your Agent's 
driving abilities, but each level gained will unlock a new Agency vehicle you 
can from then on request when deploying your Agent.

Level your Agent's Driving skill by running over Freaks and Cell soldiers, 
completing Road Races and Vehicle Stunt Rings, collecting Renegade Driving 
Orbs or by performing tricks (barrel rolls, J-Turns, etc.). Check out the 
"Vehicle Stunt Rings" and "Renegade Orbs" sections of this guide for maps 
showing the locations of all 30 Vehicle Stunt Rings and all 15 Renegade 
Driving Orbs respectively.

Driving 2 - Unlock Agency Buggy
Driving 3 - Unlock Agency Supercar
Driving 4 - Unlock Agency SUV
Driving 5 - Unlock Agency Tank

------\=======================================================================
 [*04] \                          - Weapons -
--------\=====================================================================

You can equip your Agent with unlocked weapons on the Agent redeployment 
screen or by requesting a weapon drop at an Agency Landing Zone.

Unlock Agency weapons by levelling your Agent's Firearms and Explosives 
skills. You'll unlock two or three new weapons with each skill level you gain 
(save for Explosives level four).

Weapons used by Cell soldiers are stronger than Agency weapons. To unlock a 
Cell weapon, you must acquire the weapon from a dead Cell soldier and then 
bring it to the marker at an Agency Landing Zone to store it. Once you've done 
that, you can then select the weapons at a Landing Zone or when redeploying 
your Agent. 

Agency Landing Zones are created when you capture certain Tactical Locations. 
These Landing Zones are denoted on the tracker and map (when the "Tactical 
Locations" objective is selected) by an Agency emblem icon.

 [*05] \                          - Vehicles -
--------\=====================================================================

There are five unlockable Agency vehicles. You'll unlock each of these 
vehicles when your Agent's Driving skill reaches a certain level.

One unlocked vehicle can be selected when deploying your Agent. You can also 
request an unlocked vehicle be dropped by helicopter at an Agency Landing 
Zone.

You can unlock Cell vehicles and some civilian vehicles by first acquiring the 
vehicle and then delivering the vehicle to an Agency Landing Zone. Once at a 
Landing Zone with the vehicle, drive onto the Agency marker, get out of the 
vehicle, then press the Back button to call the helicopter and select the 
"Store Vehicle" option. As with the unlockable Agency vehicles, once unlocked 
these vehicles can be deployed with your Agent or requested at an Agency 
Landing Zone.

Agency Landing Zones are created when you take over certain Tactical 
Locations. These Landing Zones are denoted on the tracker and map (when the 
"Tactical Locations" objective is selected) by an Agency emblem icon.

 [*06] \                      - Getting Started -
--------\=====================================================================
==============================================================================
...Agent Diagnostics...................................................[s01]..
==============================================================================

Before your Agent can be deployed to Pacific City, you must run through a few 
diagnostics programs. Once your HUD is online, use the Right Stick to move the 
target reticule at the centre of the screen onto the four red lights on the 
sides of the shielded door. You can then invert the aiming style by pressing 
the B button when prompted or leave things as they are by pressing the A 
button to continue.

Once you've completed the targeting program, the shield will lower and you 
will be instructed to jump off the ledge through the doorway. Run to the ledge 
and press and hold the A button to jump. Your Agent will take severe fall 
damage when he lands, but not enough to kill him. Once your Agent's health is 
completely restored, move on to the agility zone. Follow the white trail up 
the steps and collect the Agility Orb at the top.

Your next task is to leave the area. First, you must stand on the switch on 
top of the platform to open the exit and then pass through the door at the 
other end of the room before the door closes. Follow the white trail onto the 
first platform and stand on the marker to open the door. Then, jump over to 
the top of the platform north of the marker and from there to the green ledges 
at the other end of the room. Hold the A button when jumping to jump higher 
and travel further. Your Agent will automatically grab hold of a green ledge 
when he reaches one. While hanging from a ledge, press and hold the A button 
again to jump up to a higher ledge and then again to reach the top of the 
platform.

Hit the marker beyond the door to move on to the firearms program. Make your 
way to the white blip on the Mini Map and pick up the SMG there by holding the 
X button. Use free aim to kill the idle Freak nearby. You then must use 
precision aim by locking on the Freak that appears and using the Right Stick 
to target the Freak's head or legs. Shoot the Freak's head or legs while 
locked on to continue. Next up is a free-for-all. Pick up the Shotgun that 
appear and blast the Freaks to complete the program.

Follow the white trail to the next area to start the hand-to-hand combat 
program. Beat down the first Freak with the B button and then take on the 
group of Freaks that appear.

Once you're finished with close quarters-combat, pick up the Grenades that 
appear (at the bullets icon on the Mini Map) and use them to destroy the group 
of Freaks at the centre of the zone. Lock on with LT and press RB to throw a 
grenade. Kill all of the Freaks with grenades to complete the program.

After the explosives test, follow the white trail out of the area and get in 
the Agency car there. Standby and an Agency Helicopter will pick up the car 
and transport your Agent to Hope Springs. 

==============================================================================
...Stronghold: Springside Quay.........................................[s02]..
==============================================================================

Before you can get started on Project Sunburst, you must recover the Beacon 
Prototype from the Cell Stronghold in Springside Quay. The Springside Quay 
stronghold consists of two Tactical Locations, both of which are marked on the 
tracker in the bottom-left corner of the screen with separate red "C" icons.

To initiate a tactical assault on the stronghold, you must stand on the Cell 
symbol the icon on the tracker is pointing to and press the Back button to 
call for an Agency Helicopter. Once you've done that, enemy soldiers will 
begin to enter the area. Each enemy will appear on the tracker as a red blip.

To take control of a Tactical Location once you've initiated an assault, you 
must kill enough of the Cell soldiers that spawn to deplete the meter in the 
top-right corner of the screen.

As you have yet to develop any of your Agent's skills, you may find it tough 
securing these first couple of locations. If your Agent is killed, you can 
have him redeployed at the nearest drop spot so you can get right back into 
the action. This may mean reinitiating the assault, however.

--- Tactical Location: Springside Quay ---------------------------------------

The first Tactical Location at the docks entrance is littered with explosive 
materials. Use these to your advantage. A flame icon appears above explosive 
items, so target these items when one or more enemies are close by and set it 
off with gunfire.

Your Agent is currently equipped with an SMG and Shotgun. The Shotgun is a 
powerful weapon that works best at close-range. Because your Agent's health 
and shield are low, it's best to stick with your SMG and Grenades when facing 
more than one soldier. If there's a lone soldier, you can run up with your 
Shotgun and blow him away.

Once you've helped the Peacekeepers secure the docks entrance location, make 
your way to the next Tactical Location marker further south.

--- Tactical Location: Container City ----------------------------------------

The marker for this location is on the central elevated platform. Clear all of 
the enemies surrounding the marker before calling a helicopter.

There are two turrets on the central platform, but these are of limited use at 
this point since you're left immobile while using one. Once you've increased 
your Agent's Strength skill to level three, he'll be able to detach turreted 
weapons and carry them around.

If you're playing solo, it's best to drop down from the elevated platform once 
you've called the helicopter, as using one of the turrets on the platform 
would leave you open to enemy gunfire. If you're with one or more other 
players, one or two of you can get on the turrets on the central platform 
while the others sweep the area below.

There are several explosives in this area, so use them to your advantage if 
there are enemies nearby.

If your Agent's shield is down and his health is low, duck into one of the 
open containers surrounding the central platform and remain inside until his 
health and shield are back up. There's one such container just north of the 
central platform (one of the blue containers by the makeshift ramp). Just make 
sure you have your Shotgun equipped to deal with any soldiers that come after 
you.

Once you've captured both Tactical Locations, your next objective is to start 
activating the three Absorption Units tied to the Beacon inside the Power 
Station. Before you get to that, it would be worth upgrading all of your 
Agent's Skills to at least level two. When you attain Firearms level two 
you'll unlock the Assault Rifle and UV Shotgun, two weapons that serve you 
well when it comes time to tackle the next objective.

Upgrading your Agent's Agility skill requires collecting the green Agility 
Orbs scattered around the city. There are many easy-to-reach Agility Orbs 
around the docks; you'll need to collect about 10 to attain level two -- less 
if you're playing on the Tough or Fragile difficulty levels. This guide 
includes a map showing the locations of all 500 Agility Orbs in Pacific City, 
so refer to the "Agility Orbs" section before you get to collecting.?
Project Sunburst

------\=======================================================================
 [*07] \                - Project Sunburst Walkthrough -
--------\=====================================================================

Although after detonating the Power Station Beacon you can tackle the 
remaining eight Beacons in any order you wish, it is highly recommended that 
you detonate the remaining Beacons in the order they are presented in this 
guide.

Crackdown 2 is an open world game, but some parts of the city are rougher than 
others. As such, you'll want to take on the Beacons in the order the game 
instructs you to via the flashing Absorption Unit icons on your map and 
tracker.

Once you clear all of the Beacons in Hope Springs, your Agent will be better 
equipped to survive Green Bay and then Unity Heights. Later Beacon deployment 
areas require a skilled Agent with powerful weapons, so it's best to work your 
way up.

==============================================================================
...Power Station.......................................................[p01]..
==============================================================================

Before taking on this objective, make sure you've levelled all of your Agent's 
skills to at least level two. You'll unlock the Assault Rifle and UV Shotgun 
at Firearms level two and UV Grenades at Explosives level two. UV weapons are 
highly effective against Freaks. You'll be facing a mess of Freaks when you go 
on to defend the Beacon after activating all three Absorption Units, so the UV 
Shotgun and UV Grenades will definitely come in handy.

Before the Beacon can be delivered to the Power Station and detonated, you 
must activate a network of three Absorption Units to power it. The three units 
tied to the Power Station Beacon are on the northeast side of southern Hope 
Springs.

Your current objective is highlighted on the tracker in the bottom-left corner 
of the screen. To activate an Absorption Unit, you must first get to it. 
Absorption Units are typically high up on buildings and other platforms and 
surrounded by Cell soldiers. Once you've reached the unit, eliminate any 
enemies nearby and then stand on one of the configuration platforms attached 
to the unit until the meter in the top-right corner of the screen is 
completely full to bring it online.

Some Absorption Units can be hard to reach, so make sure your Agent's Agility 
skill level is at least level two (level three is ideal) before getting 
started.

--- Absorption Unit 1 --------------------------------------------------------

This is the east-most unit on your map. The unit is on top of the fenced-in 
industrial building. Pass through the opening along the wall on the east side 
of the building and then start climbing the stairs along the south side of the 
building to reach the roof.

Jump from the stairs over to the Absorption Unit and kill any Cell soldiers 
nearby. Stand on one of the platforms surrounding the Absorption Unit until 
the meter in the top-right corner of the screen is completely full to activate 
the unit.

--- Absorption Unit 2 --------------------------------------------------------

This unit is on top of a red industrial building. Climb up the ridges next to 
the windows along the east side of the building to reach the lower roof and 
then climb up the ridges to the north to reach the second Absorption Unit.

--- Absorption Unit 3 --------------------------------------------------------

The final unit is at the end of a bridge next to the Purgery Chemical 
Technologies building. To reach this unit, head up the stairs along the side 
of the building across the street and then jump up to the platform to the 
west. Ascend using the column of windows to the north to reach higher ground 
and then cross the bridge over to the Absorption Unit.

--- Power Station Beacon -----------------------------------------------------

Before getting started, ensure your Agent is equipped with an Assault Rifle, 
UV Shotgun and UV Grenades. You can switch your Agent's weapons at an Agency 
Landing Zone or by selecting the "Extraction" option in the System section of 
the Intel Screen and redeploying him.

Once you've activated all three Absorption Units and your Agent is outfitted 
with the appropriate weaponry, make your way to the white blip on the tracker 
in the bottom-left corner of the screen. Stand on the Agency symbol there and 
a white trail will appear. Follow this white trail and it will lead you to the 
entrance to the cavernous Freak Lair underneath the power station.

Continue following the white trail down the step-like platforms and then drop 
down to the bottom of the tower. If your Agent isn't packing a UV Shotgun, you 
can find one by the weapon crate at the south-most bullets icon on the 
tracker.

When ready, stand on Drop Point marker in the middle of the lair and press the 
Back button to signal an Agency Helicopter to drop the Beacon inside.

Once the Beacon is set, you must defend it until the blue meter in the top-
right corner of the screen is completely full. The meter will fill overtime, 
so you just need to keep the Freaks off the Beacon until it detonates. The red 
meter below the blue meter represents the Beacon's condition. You'll fail the 
objective if the Freaks manage to destroy the Beacon before it detonates.

Though there are many Freaks in this lair, the only Freaks you have to worry 
about are those that appear on the tracker as red blips. These Freaks have a 
glowing symbol above their heads; they'll stand back and throw projectiles at 
the Beacon, damaging it. The other Freaks in the lair may make it difficult to 
move around, but they deal a negligible amount of damage to the Beacon, so try 
your best to ignore them and focus on taking down the attacking Freaks that 
appear on your tracker.

UV weapons are highly effective against Freaks. One shot from a UV Shotgun 
will destroy a Freak and any others close by. The UV Shotgun has very limited 
range, so get up close to your target before firing. UV Grenades work well for 
clearing out large crowds of Freaks (as do standard Grenades), and you can 
also target the explosive items scattered about the lair.

Continue sprinting around the lair and blasting attacking Freaks with your UV 
Shotgun to quickly put them down. If you run out of ammo, switch to your 
Assault Rifle and continue mowing down the attackers. If your Assault Rifle is 
out of ammo, look for another weapon by the weapon crates (the bullets icons 
on your tracker) around the Beacon.

Continue defending the Beacon until the blue meter in the top-right corner of 
the screen is completely full.

==============================================================================
...Weapons Factory.....................................................[p02]..
==============================================================================

--- Absorption Unit 1 --------------------------------------------------------

The first unit tied to the Weapons Factory Beacon is in the northeast quarter 
of southern Hope Springs. Make your way to the blinking Absorption Unit icon 
on your tracker in the bottom-left corner of the screen to locate the first 
unit in the network.

This unit is on the rooftop of the industrial building with a "Hi-Power" sign 
above its main entrance. To reach the top of this building, start by jumping 
onto the bus shelter next to the southern entrance and then from there jump to 
the pipes attached to the southern side of the building. Once on top of the 
pipes, jump over the railing and head through the alley to the east. You can 
ascend to the roof from here using the black, protruding structures along the 
west side of the building. 

Because you are near a Tactical Location, there will be many Cell soldiers on 
the roof of this building. Take the time to clear them out before activating 
the Absorption Unit. The rooftop is littered with explosive objects, so use 
these to your advantage. You can secure the Tactical Location here afterward 
if you are so inclined.

--- Absorption Unit 2 --------------------------------------------------------

This next unit is a bit of a pain to get to. It's on the south-most rig in the 
water southeast of southern Hope Springs. You'll have to cross the first two 
rigs to get to the third where the Absorption Unit is. Each rig is rife with 
Cell soldiers, so make sure your Agent is equipped with an Assault Rifle, 
Shotgun and Grenades. You can switch your Agent's weapons at an Agency Landing 
Zone or by selecting the "Extraction" option in the System section of the 
Intel Screen and redeploying him.

To get to the first rig, you can either swim out to it or cross the large 
piping attached to it. It's best to swim to it, since you'll no doubt have 
Cell soldiers firing at you if you attempt to cross the pipe.

Fight your way to the other end of the first rig and jump to the suspended 
stairs attached to the second. The second rig is crawling with Cell soldiers. 
Since you'll be fighting in close quarters, it's best to go at these guys with 
your Shotgun

Keep an eye on your tracker as you move toward the south end of the rig. White 
blips denote enemies that are not yet aware of your presence, while red blips 
denote enemies who are on to you. Further, triangular blips on the tracker 
denote enemies who are either above or below you, depending on which way the 
tip of the blip is pointing.

When a group of enemies becomes aware of your presence (usually when one of 
them fires a flare), they often cluster together when trying to reach you. 
This is where grenades are especially useful. The dumb-as-rocks AI very rarely 
scatters when a grenade is thrown, so you can often score multiple kills with 
a single, well-thrown grenade.

Fight your way to the top level of the second rig. The stairs at the south end 
of the top level lead to the third rig. Mind the gap.

There are many Cell soldiers in the area surrounding the Absorption Unit. 
Since you're more in the open now, equip your Assault Rifle and start picking 
off enemy soldiers from afar. If your Agent's health is low, fallback down the 
stairs and remain there until his health is restored before heading back up to 
continue the fight. As per usual, there are plenty of explosive materials 
dotting the area, so use these to your advantage if there are enemies nearby 
them.

When the area is clear, head for the Absorption Unit on the platform in the 
northwest corner of the rig. Eliminate any remaining enemies nearby and then 
stand on one of the platforms until you've activated the unit.

--- Absorption Unit 3 --------------------------------------------------------

The final unit is on the east-most bridge between northern and southern Hope 
Springs. It's on top of the platform midway down the bridge. There is a group 
of Cell soldiers surrounding the unit; they'll fire down at you as you 
approach, so quickly make your way to the series of red ridges leading up to 
the middle of the platform and start climbing.

Once on the platform, use your Assault Rifle and Grenades to take down the 
enemy soldiers there and then get to activating the unit.

--- Weapons Factory Beacon ---------------------------------------------------

Before getting started, ensure your Agent is equipped with an Assault Rifle, 
Machine Gun (go with a UV Shotgun if you don't yet have this weapon unlocked) 
and UV Grenades. You can switch your Agent's weapons at an Agency Landing Zone 
or by selecting the "Extraction" option in the System section of the Intel 
Screen and redeploying him.

The Beacon deployment area is inside the weapons factory on the island east of 
southern Hope Springs. Cross the ruined bridge over to the island and make 
your way to the weapons factory at the north end. To get inside the factory, 
you must climb the rocks surrounding the tower to get to the opening at the 
top of the tower. The rocks on the east side of the tower are the easiest to 
climb.

Once you've made it up to the tower, ascend to the top using the grooves 
around the tower. Use the platforms all along the walls of the inside of the 
tower to descend to the Freak Lair without suffering fall damage. When you've 
made it to the bottom, stand in the marker and call the helicopter to get 
started.

There are two different types of attacking Freaks in this lair: the 
projectile-throwing Freaks you encountered in the Power Station lair and a 
new, exploding type. These new Freaks will attempt to run at the charging 
Beacon and explode to damage it. These explosions deal modest damage and just 
one bullet is enough to detonate these exploding Freaks, so there's not much 
to worry about. 

The best way to go about defending this Beacon is to remain on the circular 
walkway that's suspended above the bottom floor and take down attacking Freaks 
from there. The exploding Freaks will enter the lair from the entry points on 
the bottom floor and the projectile-throwing freaks from the entry points 
along the side of the circular walkway.

Not only does remaining on the circular walkway protect you from the garden 
variety Freaks below, but it also puts you in a good position to take down 
both types of attacking Freaks with your Assault Rifle.

Keep an eye on your tracker for red, upside down triangles, as these will 
denote exploding Freaks below you if you're standing on the walkway. You just 
need to hit these Freaks with one bullet to detonate them, so get on that as 
soon as they enter the area and then get back to clearing any projectile-
throwing Freaks on the walkway.

Continue sprinting around the circular walkway, gunning down any projectile-
throwing Freaks that appear on the walkway and any exploding Freaks that 
appear below, until the blue meter in the top-right corner of the screen is 
completely full and the Beacon detonates.

==============================================================================
...Mason's Quarry......................................................[p03]..
==============================================================================

--- Absorption Unit 1 --------------------------------------------------------

This first unit is at the northeast end of northern Hope Springs. This one is 
easy to reach. Just make your way to the blinking Absorption Unit icon on your 
tracker and get onto the roof of the building there. Eliminate the Cell 
soldiers surrounding the unit and then stand on one of the configuration 
panels until you've activated the unit.

Though you've activated this unit, there's a makeshift barrier blocking the 
power beam now emitting from it. You must demolish this barrier so the unit 
can power the Beacon. Follow the power beam emitting from the unit to spot the 
barrier.

There are a few ways you can go about tearing down the barrier. If you've 
unlocked the Flocket Launcher weapon (by levelling your Agent's Explosives 
skill to level three), you can simply fire a single rocket at the barrier to 
knock it down. If you don't have such a weapon, stand on the rocks directly 
below the barrier and either throw a grenade up there or throw an explosive 
object and shoot it in mid-air when it reaches the barrier.

--- Absorption Unit 2 --------------------------------------------------------

This unit is up on one of the hills surrounding Mason's Quarry. Getting to it 
is a bit tricky. You'll need climb out of the quarry west of the Absorption 
Unit icon on your tracker to get onto the hill.

Inside the quarry, get onto the lower ridge and sprint over to the large 
boulder partway down. Jump onto this boulder and then onto the middle ridge. 
Then, sprint to the southern end of the middle ridge and jump up the rocks 
there to reach the hill.

Eliminate the Cell soldiers surrounding the platform and toss a grenade or two 
onto the platform to detonate the explosive barrels there. When the area is 
clear, stand on one of the configuration platforms until you've activated the 
unit.

--- Absorption Unit 3 --------------------------------------------------------

The final unit of this network is on top of a curved, red-bricked building at 
the north end of southern Hope Springs. You can scale to the top of the 
building by climbing the last column of windows in the southeast corner. Make 
sure you're climbing the correct column, because if your Agent's Agility skill 
isn't high enough you'll need the tan protrusion above the column to make it 
to the top.

Take down the Cell soldiers surrounding the Absorption Unit and then get to 
activating it.

--- Mason's Quarry Beacon 
-----------------------------------------------------

Before getting started, ensure your Agent is equipped with an Assault Rifle, 
UV Shotgun and UV Grenades. You can switch your Agent's weapons at an Agency 
Landing Zone or by selecting the "Extraction" option in the System section of 
the Intel Screen and redeploying him.

The Beacon deployment area is inside the cavern accessible from the middle 
ridge in Mason's Quarry. Get onto the lower ridge and sprint over to the large 
boulder partway down. Jump onto this boulder and then onto the middle ridge. 
Start south once on the middle ridge and turn left when you reach the cave 
entrance.

Drop down to the Beacon Drop Point marker in the middle of the cavern and 
press the Back button to signal to the helicopter.

The attackers in this lair are large, agile Freaks that throw acidic 
projectiles. These Freaks will jump onto one of the rock columns surrounding 
the Beacon and throw projectiles at the Beacon from atop the column.

As per usual, attacking Freaks will appear as red blips on your tracker. When 
one of these Freaks appears, follow the red dot to the Freak's perch, then 
jump up and blast the Freak with your UV Shotgun. All it takes is one well-
aimed shot to blow the Freak away. The UV Shotgun has limited range, so make 
sure you're close enough.

While the Beacon charges, continue sprinting around the area to avoid unmarked 
Freaks and use your UV Shotgun to knock attackers off of the rock columns as 
they appear. Although it's best to ignore common Freaks and focus on 
eliminating attackers, it might be worth throwing a couple of UV Grenades when 
the Freaks are dense to give yourself more room to move around.

Keep this up until the blue meter in the top-right corner of the screen is 
completely full to detonate the Beacon.

==============================================================================
...Sportiz Gym.........................................................[p04]..
==============================================================================

Ensure your Agent is equipped with an Assault Rifle, Sniper Rifle (or Flocket 
Launcher if you've levelled your Agent's Explosives skill to level three) and 
Grenades before setting out to activate this network.

--- Absorption Unit 1 --------------------------------------------------------

Look for this unit on a platform alongside the beach at the west end of 
southern Green Bay. Toss a Grenade onto the platform or shoot one of the 
explosive barrels to kill the Cell soldiers guarding the unit.

The biggest threat here is the armoured, Rocket Launcher-wielding Cell soldier 
on the rock formation south of the platform. Use your Sniper Rifle or Flocket 
Launcher to take him down. He's armoured, so it'll take quite a few hits with 
a Sniper Rifle to kill him. Aim for his head. Jump or dodge to the side to 
avoid incoming rockets if necessary. 

--- Absorption Unit 2 --------------------------------------------------------

This unit is on a suspended platform at the end of the boardwalk along the 
south coast of southern Green Bay. The start of the boardwalk is just off the 
street that runs alongside the beach.

A group of Cell soldiers will appear as you near the gazebo; a couple of well-
thrown Grenades can clear them out. When the way is clear, move through the 
gazebo and kill the enemy soldiers standing on the other side. Toss a grenade 
onto the Absorption Unit platform to kill the two enemies there before jumping 
over to it. With that, stand on one of the configuration platforms until 
you've activated the unit.

--- Absorption Unit 3 --------------------------------------------------------

The last unit in this network is on top of a grey office building at the east 
end of southern Green Bay. You can scale one of the window columns on the west 
side of the building to reach the roof.  The Cell population in this part of 
Green Bay is dense, so be sure to clear any soldiers on street level before 
beginning your ascent. 

Once on the roof, gun down the enemies on the platform and then stand on one 
of the configuration platforms to begin activating the unit. There are snipers 
and one or two Rocket Launcher-wielding enemies on the rooftops surrounding 
the Absorption Unit platform, so use your Sniper Rifle to take out these 
enemies while configuring the unit. Jump or move onto one of the other 
platforms if you need to dodge an incoming rocket or lock on to a distant 
enemy for a quick kill.

When the Absorption Unit is online, you'll come to learn that something is 
blocking the power beam the unit is now emitting. You must destroy the 
makeshift barrier blocking the power beam so the active unit can power the 
Beacon.

Use a Flocket Launcher to demolish the barrier. If you've levelled your 
Agent's Explosives skill to level three, you can select the Flocket Launcher 
on the Agent redeployment screen. Switch your Agent's weapons at an Agency 
Landing Zone or by selecting the "Extraction" option in the System section of 
the Intel Screen and redeploying him.

Follow the power beam emitting from the unit east to the barrier (the power 
beam trajectory also appears on the map on the Intel Screen). From street 
level, look for the barrier on top of a white building. Lock on to the barrier 
with your Flocket Launcher equipped and fire a rocket to knock the barrier 
down.

--- Sportiz Gym Beacon -------------------------------------------------------

Ensure your Agent is equipped with UV Grenades before setting out. You can 
switch your Agent's weapons at an Agency Landing Zone or by selecting the 
"Extraction" option in the System section of the Intel Screen and redeploying 
him.

The Beacon deployment area is below the Sportiz Health and Fitness Complex at 
the west end of southern Green Bay. The entrance to the Freak Lair is along 
the white wall on the beach behind the complex. Move through the opening in 
the wall and drop down to the weapon crate on the platform at the end of the 
tunnel. Swap whatever weapon you have for the Harpoon next to this crate.

After picking up the Harpoon, head east to the Beacon Drop Point. Before 
calling the helicopter, be sure to pick up the Ultra Assault Rifle by the 
weapon crate across from the Beacon. Be sure to hold on to the Harpoon when 
picking up this weapon.

Once your Agent is equipped with the Harpoon and Ultra Assault Rifle, stand on 
the Beacon Drop Point marker and call the helicopter. With that, jump onto the 
rock formation east of the drop point (the one with the Online Orb). Remain 
perched here for the duration of this mission.

The attacking Freaks in this lair are the large, agile, projectile throwers 
you've likely encountered before. As with the Mason's Quarry Freak Lair, these 
attackers will jump onto one of the rock formations surrounding the Beacon and 
throw projectiles at the Beacon from there. The Harpoon can take these Freaks 
down with one shot, so you can effectively remain perched on one of the rock 
formations and just pick off attackers as they spawn.

As per usual, attacking Freaks will appear on your tracker as red blips. When 
one of these Freaks appears, lock on with your Harpoon equipped and fire once 
to take him down. Unmarked Freaks will swarm the Beacon and deal minor damage 
to it overtime. Though you can just as well ignore these Freaks, periodically 
toss a UV Grenade down at the Beacon to clear them away.

Some of the unmarked Freaks in the lair will be hostile towards you. If you're 
perched on a rock formation, the only Freaks you have to worry about here are 
unmarked agile ones. These guys will leap onto your perch and take swipes at 
you. If you're attacked by one of these Freaks, you can either hit him with a 
Harpoon or melee him off the platform. If you do choose to melee, just be 
careful not to fall off the platform yourself!

Your Harpoon gun ammo is limited, so don't waste any on garden variety Freaks. 
Only use harpoons on attackers and those Freaks that would actively attack 
you. If you do run out of Harpoons, the Ultra Assault Rifle boasts impressive 
range and accuracy, so remain on the rock formation and continue picking off 
attackers as they appear.

Keep this up until the Beacon is fully charged.

==============================================================================
...Radio Station.......................................................[p05]..
==============================================================================

Things get tough here. Before getting started on this one, you'd do well to 
level your Agent's Firearm and Agility skills each to at least level four and 
Explosives to level three. The Ultra Assault Rifle and Harpoon weapons you 
unlock for attaining Firearms level four and the Flocket Launcher at level 
three will serve you well here. As well, an Agility skill level of four may be 
required to reach the final Absorption Unit (or, at the very least, make 
reaching it much easier).

--- Absorption Unit 1 --------------------------------------------------------

Look for this unit on top of a blue and red building at the northwest end of 
southern Green Bay. Use the windows on the west side of the building to reach 
the top. Once on top of the building, toss a Grenade onto the Absorption Unit 
platform to take out the Cell soldiers there. Gun down any remaining enemies 
near the unit and then stand on one of the configuration platforms to start 
the activation process. 

Enemies dot the rooftops surrounding this Absorption Unit, so stand on the 
configuration panels at the back of the platform so the unit can shield you 
from enemy gunfire.

--- Absorption Unit 2 --------------------------------------------------------

This unit on the island villa west of northern Green Bay. This villa happens 
to be a Cell Stronghold, so expect plenty of resistance.

Ensure your Agent is equipped with an Ultra Assault Rifle, a Flocket Launcher 
and Grenades before setting out to activate this unit. You can switch your 
Agent's weapons at an Agency Landing Zone or by selecting the "Extraction" 
option in the System section of the Intel Screen and redeploying him.

This Cell Stronghold is made up of two Tactical Locations: one on the mainland 
and the other within the island villa walls. You can secure these two Tactical 
Locations before getting to the Absorption Unit if you wish. Alternatively, 
you can drop down to the beach, swim out to the island, climb up to the villa 
and hop over the wall to avoid the mess of enemies at the front gate.

The island villa is not as heavily-guarded as the mainland gate. There is an 
armoured, Rocket Launcher-wielding enemy on the tower at the back of the villa 
to watch out for. Take him down with your Flocket Launcher and then turn to 
the remaining enemies.

When the area is clear, step onto one of the platforms surrounding the 
Absorption Unit to start the configuration process. Once the unit is online, 
you'll come to learn that the power beam emitting from the unit is being 
blocked by a makeshift barrier. You must follow the power beam and demolish 
the barrier blocking it. One rocket will do it. The power beam trajectory is 
visible on the Intel Screen map as well.

--- Absorption Unit 3 --------------------------------------------------------

The final unit in this network is on top of the lighthouse at the north end of 
northern Green Bay. Like the last one, this unit is within another a Cell-held 
Tactical Location and thus heavily guarded. You can secure the Tactical 
Location before going for the Absorption Unit if you wish, though you can just 
as well fight your way to the unit.

Ensure your Agent is equipped with an Ultra Assault Rifle, a Sniper Rifle and 
Grenades before setting out to activate this unit. You can switch your Agent's 
weapons at an Agency Landing Zone or by selecting the "Extraction" option in 
the System section of the Intel Screen and redeploying him.

Approach the lighthouse from the south. Use your Sniper Rifle as you approach 
to pick off the snipers and Rocket Launcher-wielding enemies at the front. 
Jump around and move from side to side in an attempt to dodge enemy gunfire as 
you clear the area around the lighthouse. If you're taking a lot of damage, 
fallback and take cover somewhere out of range until your Agent's shield and 
health are back up.

When the surrounding area is clear, head up the stairs to the right of the 
lighthouse, climb up the rocks and jump onto the platform attached to the 
lighthouse (the one with the Agility Orb on it). From here, jump up to grab 
hold of the bar in front of the window above. Continue jumping upward until 
you reach the window with the green curtain at the top.

Hug the side of the lighthouse and walk along the ledge to the platform to the 
left. Jump onto the platform and then over to the higher platform to the east. 
From here, face west and jump up to the platform higher up. Jump up to the 
next platform to reach the top of the lighthouse and then gun down the enemies 
there with your Ultra Assault Rifle. Activate the Absorption Unit when the 
area is clear.

--- Radio Station Beacon -----------------------------------------------------

Before setting out, ensure your Agent is equipped with an Ultra Assault Rifle, 
Harpoon and UV Grenades. You can switch your Agent's weapons at an Agency 
Landing Zone or by selecting the "Extraction" option in the System section of 
the Intel Screen and redeploying him.

This Freak Lair is underneath the radio station at the north end of northern 
Green Bay. Make your way to the station and drop down the chasm to enter the 
lair. Stand on the Beacon Drop Point marker once inside and call the 
helicopter to start.

The best place to position yourself here is on the flat rock east of the 
Beacon Drop Point, as common and brute Freaks won't be able to reach you here. 
As well, this spot will afford you a good view of the lair and each entry 
point.

As per usual, Freaks attacking the Beacon will appear on your tracker as red 
blips. A single, well-aimed shot from a Harpoon gun will kill these Freaks. 
Just keep an eye on your tracker and when a red blip appears, turn to it, lock 
on to the marked Freak and hit him with a harpoon to take him down.

Since your ammo is limited, don't waste any harpoons on common Freaks. Common 
Freaks will swarm the charging Beacon and deal modest damage overtime, so 
periodically throw a UV Grenade at the Beacon to clear them away.

Occasionally, three attackers will come in through the southeast entry point 
at once. Try to take two or three of them out with a well-thrown UV Grenade to 
conserve your Harpoon ammo. When you do run out of harpoons, switch to your 
Ultra Assault Rifle. This weapon boasts impressive range and accuracy, so 
remain on the rock formation and continue picking off attackers as they 
appear.

You may encounter brute Freaks in this lair. These guys are larger and 
stronger than your average Freak and can pick up and throw objects. Keep an 
eye out for these guys and be ready to dodge when one picks up an object. The 
distinct, hulking growls they make give them away.

Remain in position and continue harpooning highlighted Freaks as they appear. 
Keep this up until the blue meter in the top-right corner of the screen is 
completely full and the Beacon detonates.

==============================================================================
...Comms Center........................................................[p06]..
==============================================================================

Level your Agent's Firearms skill to level four and Explosives to at least 
level three. You'll need Proximity Mines and the Flocket Launcher (both 
unlocked at Explosives level three) when defending the Comms Center Beacon.

--- Absorption Unit 1 --------------------------------------------------------

The first unit is on top of the tall, blue and green building at the west end 
of southeast Unity Heights. Start by climbing onto the monitor to the right of 
the main entrance on the south side of the building. From atop the monitor, 
jump over to the awning above the main entrance.

Once on the awning, you can ascend to the top of the building using the sash 
bars on the column of tinted windows on the south side of the building. It can 
be difficult to make this climb because sometimes the Agent won't grab onto 
the bars. This can be frustrating, but just keep at it. Try pushing forward on 
the Right Stick when the Agent jumps up to the next bar.

When you've made it onto the roof, gun down the enemy soldiers surrounding the 
Absorption Unit and then stand on one of the configuration platforms to start 
the activation process. Remain on the platform until the unit is online.

--- Absorption Unit 2 --------------------------------------------------------

Ensure your Agent is equipped with an Ultra Assault Rifle and a Flocket 
Launcher before setting out to activate this unit. You can switch your Agent's 
weapons at an Agency Landing Zone or by selecting the "Extraction" option in 
the System section of the Intel Screen and redeploying him.

This one is on top of the curved building in the northwest corner of southeast 
Unity Heights. Use the rows of windows on the east side of the building to 
reach the roof. There are several snipers on surrounding rooftops, so quickly 
get onto the Absorption Unit platform to avoid their fire.

There is a Grenade Launcher-wielding enemy on the structure west of the 
Absorption Unit. There happens to be an explosive barrel next to him, so 
target the barrel and shoot it to blow him away. Activate the unit when the 
area is clear.

A makeshift barrier is blocking the power beam now emitting from this unit. 
The barrier is on top of the building across the street east of the unit. 
Target the barrier with your Flocket Launcher and fire a rocket to demolish 
it.

--- Absorption Unit 3 --------------------------------------------------------

The final unit in this network is on top of one of the blue buildings at the 
centre of southeast Unity Heights. Use the column of windows on the north side 
of the building to reach the roof.

The Absorption Unit is guarded by an armoured, Turret Machine Gun-wielding 
Cell soldier. Take him down with grenades or your Flocket Launcher and then 
step onto one of the configuration platforms. There are snipers and Rocket 
Launcher-wielding enemies on top of the buildings to the south; take them out 
if they're causing you grief.

--- Comms Center Beacon ------------------------------------------------------

Before setting out, ensure your Agent is equipped with a Flocket Launcher and 
Proximity Mines. Both of these weapons are unlocked upon attaining Explosives 
level three. You can switch your Agent's weapons at an Agency Landing Zone or 
by selecting the "Extraction" option in the System section of the Intel Screen 
and redeploying him.

The Freak Lair is beneath the Comms Center at the southeast end of Unity 
Heights. Head to the end of the wall connected to the cylindrical structure, 
then move through the opening in the side of structure and drop down to the 
Freak Lair.

Take note of the Flocket Launcher next to the weapon crate northwest of the 
Beacon Drop Point marker and the Proximity Mines next to the crate east of the 
drop point. You'll need to use these to replenish your ammo at some point.

Stand in the Beacon Drop Point marker when ready and press the Back button to 
signal to the helicopter. Then, jump onto the platform northeast of the Beacon 
Drop Point marker and await the first wave of Freaks. Face south and focus on 
the group of explosive barrels there. A giant Freak will soon emerge from the 
ground south of the Beacon. The giant will sprint over to the explosive 
barrels and roar; hit the barrels with your Flocket Launcher to set them off 
and damage the giant.

Needless to say, the giant Freaks in this lair are the biggest threat to the 
Beacon. They require a ridiculous amount of explosives to bring down and will 
likely deal severe damage to the Beacon before you manage to make the kill.

On the upside, the only Freaks you have to worry about here other than the 
giants are the agile Freaks that will periodically perch themselves on the 
rock platform northeast of the Beacon. If you can manage to kill the two giant 
Freaks (a second giant will appear when the Beacon is about a quarter of the 
way there) before they destroy the Beacon, you can likely defend what's left 
of the Beacon quite easily.

To bring down a giant quickly and minimize damage to the Beacon, lock on and 
begin firing rockets as soon as one appears. Jump around to avoid common 
Freaks and continue firing rockets and throwing Proximity Mines at the giant 
until it falls. Once you've managed to bring the beast down, focus on keeping 
the rock platform northeast of the Beacon clear of agile Freaks. Collect the 
mine and rocket ammo at the weapon crates if need be.

As soon as the second giant Freak appears, turn your attention to him and take 
him down the same way you did the first. You only have two giant Freaks to 
worry about, so once you've taken down the second, continue defending the 
Beacon from the agile Freaks that perch on the rock platform until the Beacon 
detonates.

==============================================================================
...Unity Heights Square................................................[p07]..
==============================================================================

You'd do well to level your Agent's Firearms, Explosives, Strength and Agility 
skills to at least level four before attempting this one. You'll definitely 
need Strength level three so your Agent can rip up and carry turreted weapons.

--- Absorption Unit 1 --------------------------------------------------------

This unit is on the east-most support structure on the bridge between 
southwestern Unity Heights and northern Green Bay. To get to the top of the 
structure, ascend using the ledges all the way up the column on either side of 
the bridge. When you reach the highest ledge, inch over to the left or right 
and then jump up to reach the platform.

Once on the platform, gun down the Cell soldiers surrounding the Absorption 
Unit. There are explosive barrels up here, so be careful not to accidentally 
detonate one and get yourself killed. When the area is clear of enemies, stand 
on one of the configuration platform to begin the activation process. Remain 
on the platform until the unit is online.

--- Absorption Unit 2 --------------------------------------------------------

The second unit is on top of one of the buildings south of Unity Heights 
Square. To reach the unit, start by ascending one of the columns of windows on 
the west side of the black building next to the Absorption Unit building.

When you reach the window at the top of the column, use the Right Stick to 
focus the camera on your Agent's side. Push the Left Stick toward the building 
on the other side of the alley and press the A button to jump over to the 
ledge there. Once on the ledge, use the balconies on the side of the building 
you are now on to reach the roof. Ascend to the platform, kill any Cell 
soldiers there and then get to activating the Absorption Unit.

--- Absorption Unit 3 --------------------------------------------------------

The final unit is on top of the red and black building northwest of Unity 
Heights Square. Start by scaling the window column on the north side of the 
building. When you reach the top of the column, jump onto the platform to your 
right and ascend to the Absorption Unit using the ridges on the north side of 
the building. Once at the top, jump up to the platform and activate the final 
Absorption Unit.

--- Unity Height Square Beacon -----------------------------------------------

Before setting out, ensure your Agent is equipped with an Assault Rifle, 
Flocket Launcher and UV Grenades. If you've levelled your Agent's Explosives 
skill to level five, trade the Flocket Launcher for a Flak Turret. You can 
switch your Agent's weapons at an Agency Landing Zone or by selecting the 
"Extraction" option in the System section of the Intel Screen and redeploying 
him.

The Beacon deployment area is in the parking garage beneath Unity Heights 
Square. The parking garage is accessible through the collapsed portion of the 
square. Drop into the Freak Lair, stand on the Beacon Drop Point marker and 
call the helicopter to get started.

Hop onto the trailer east of the Beacon Drop Point marker and face west. When 
the Freaks start coming, a giant Freak will emerge from the ground at the west 
end of the garage. Use your Flak Cannon or Flocket Launcher to quickly put him 
down.

Several different types of attacking Freaks will appear on your tracker in 
this lair. You'll face two giants total (the second will appear when the 
Beacon is a bit less than half of the way there) as well as a mix of agile, 
exploding and projectile-throwing Freaks.

Agile Freaks will perch themselves on the collapsed columns east and north of 
the Beacon. Use melee attacks or your Ultra Assault Rifle to keep the columns 
clear with. Exploding and projectile-throwing Freaks will enter the garage in 
groups. The projectile throwers will line up and pelt the Beacon with acid. 
Use UV Grenades and your Ultra Assault Rifle to clear away these groups of 
Freaks. Keep your distance when killing explosive Freaks (the armless ones), 
as the ensuing burst will knock your Agent down if he's too close.

When the second giant appears, immediately head for the turret northeast of 
the Beacon and remove it from its housing by holding the X button. Once you 
have the turret, get behind the giant and continue firing at him until he 
falls.

As well as the attacking Freaks, you also have brute Freaks to contend with. 
Brutes are the large, muscle-bound Freaks that can pick up and throw objects. 
There are plenty of cars and rubble scattered around the garage these Freaks 
can pick up and throw, so be careful. Try your best to ignore these Freaks and 
focus on taking out attacking Freaks when they appear on your tracker. Just 
keep sprinting around the garage to avoid them.

Continue sprinting around the garage, using your Ultra Assault Rifle and UV 
Grenades to take out attacking Freaks as they appear, until the Beacon 
detonates.

==============================================================================
...Security Ruins......................................................[p08]..
==============================================================================

Before attempting this Beacon, your Agent should have Firearms and Explosives 
skill levels of at least four. An Explosives skill level of five is highly 
recommended if you're playing solo and on a difficulty higher than Tough.

--- Absorption Unit 1 --------------------------------------------------------

This unit is on a raised platform inside the domed building in the northeast 
corner of Unity Heights. There is a sniper on this platform, so be careful. 
Use your Sniper Rifle or Harpoon to kill the sniper before climbing up.

To reach the platform, start by jumping onto the intact glass window to the 
right of it. Then, jump across the broken portion of window over to another 
intact window further up the dome. Continue up to the metal part of the dome 
and then jump over to the Absorption Unit platform. Stand on one of the 
configuration panels surrounding the unit and remain there until the unit is 
online.

--- Absorption Unit 2 --------------------------------------------------------

Ensure your Agent is packing an explosive weapon or grenades before setting 
out to activate this unit. You can switch your Agent's weapons at an Agency 
Landing Zone or by selecting the "Extraction" option in the System section of 
the Intel Screen and redeploying him.

The second unit is in the ruined security centre between northern and 
southeastern Unity Heights.

Approach this unit from the north. Jump onto the wall above the tunnel opening 
there and face southeast. Grab hold of the ledge on the gap in the dark grey 
support column and then jump to the ledge higher up. Hug the wall while 
walking to the other end of ledge, then jump onto the collapsed bridge and 
over to the Absorption Unit platform.

There's an armoured, Turret Machine Gun-wielding Cell soldier guarding this 
Absorption Unit. Take them down with an explosive weapon or grenades. He's 
tough to beat otherwise.

--- Absorption Unit 3 --------------------------------------------------------

Bring the big guns for this one: a Flocket Launcher, Rocket Launcher or 
Grenade Launcher. You can switch your Agent's weapons at an Agency Landing 
Zone or by selecting the "Extraction" option in the System section of the 
Intel Screen and redeploying him. 

The final unit is on top of the parking garage at the south end of northern 
Unity Heights. Ascend to the top of the garage using the open ramps on the 
west side. There is a sniper on top of the structure north of the platform and 
two armoured enemies -- one wielding a Turret Machine Gun and the other a 
Rocket Launcher -- guarding the Absorption Unit. Kill the two armoured 
soldiers with grenades or another explosive weapon and then take down the 
sniper before getting to the unit.

--- Security Ruins Beacon ----------------------------------------------------

Defending this Beacon is tough if you're playing solo on a difficulty level 
higher than Tough. Enlist the help of another player over Xbox Live if 
possible. Of course, this objective is still doable if you have no choice but 
to play solo, although you may be in for a tough time.

It is recommended that you level your Agent's Explosives skill to level five 
before attempting this. You'll also need the Homing Launcher and Cluster 
Grenade Cell weapons. To acquire a Cell weapon, you must take it from a dead 
Cell soldier and then bring the weapon to the marker at an Agency Landing 
Zone. Once you've done that, you can then request these weapons at a Landing 
Zone or when redeploying your Agent. Cluster Grenades are quite common, but 
you can only find a Homing Launcher at Cell-held Tactical Locations in Unity 
Heights.

When you're ready to get started, equip your Agent with a Flocket Launcher, 
Homing Launcher and Cluster Grenades. You can switch your Agent's weapons at 
an Agency Landing Zone or by selecting the "Extraction" option in the System 
section of the Intel Screen and redeploying him.

The deployment zone is beneath the ruined security centre between northern and 
southeastern Unity Heights. Jump onto the wall surrounding the centre and then 
drop down to the Freak Lair entrance. Fall down to the Beacon Drop Point 
marker and give the signal to the helicopter to start.

As soon as you've given the signal, cross the rock bridge east of the Beacon 
and face north. A giant Freak will soon appear. Immediately lock on to the 
giant when he appears and start firing your Flocket Launcher at him.

This giant will jog around the circular path surrounding the Beacon. He will 
periodically stop to pick up a boulder and then hurl that boulder at the 
Beacon. He has no interest in attacking you. You can down him quickly with 
your Flocket Launcher if you keep after him and continuously pelt him with 
rockets. You can likely kill him before the Beacon even drops.

Once you've downed the first giant Freak, cross back over the rock bridge to 
the Beacon and throw a Cluster Grenade or two to clear away the Freaks 
surrounding it . Another giant will soon appear. This one will run up to the 
Beacon and continuously smash it until you manage to bring him down. 
Immediately lock on to this giant when he appears and use what ammo you have 
left in your Flocket Launcher to damage him. Finish him off with your Homing 
Launcher.

Once you've downed two giants, another will appear on the circular path 
surrounding the Beacon. As with the first giant you encountered, this one will 
remain on the path and hurl boulders at the Beacon. Completely ignore this 
guy. He'll deal a negligible amount of damage to the Beacon and killing him 
will just spawn another giant, so leave him be.

The biggest threats to the Beacon are not giants, but rather unmarked 
attackers. Agile and projectile-throwing Freaks will still attack the Beacon 
even if they don't appear on your tracker. Unlike in previous lairs where you 
could pretty much ignore the unmarked Freaks, these ones Freaks can cause a 
lot of damage if you ignore them. As such, you must remain near the Beacon to 
keep these Freaks distracted. Trade one of your weapons for the UV Shotgun 
next to the weapon crate southwest of the Beacon and use it to eliminate any 
Freaks that appear near the Beacon.

Continue blasting the Freaks that appear around the Beacon (while completely 
ignoring the giant Freak marked on your tracker) until the Beacon detonates.

==============================================================================
...Research Ruins......................................................[p09]..
==============================================================================

Before attempting this Beacon, your Agent should have Firearms and Explosives 
skill levels of at least four. An Explosives skill level of five is highly 
recommended if you're playing solo and on a difficulty higher than Tough.

Equip your Agent with an Ultra Assault Rifle or Mach HMG-120 and a Flocket 
Launcher or Homing Launcher before setting out.

--- Absorption Unit 1 --------------------------------------------------------

This unit is on a circular structure in the southwest corner of the ruined 
research centre in the northwest corner of northern Unity Heights. The unit is 
guarded by two armoured Cell soldiers -- both wielding Turret Machine Guns -- 
and two unarmoured soldiers wielding explosive weapons on nearby rooftops.

There is an explosive barrel on the Absorption Unit platform between the two 
armoured soldiers, so hit one of the soldiers with a rocket and you'll likely 
detonate the barrel and kill them both. Use your Homing Launcher or Flocket 
Launcher to take out the explosive weapon-wielding soldiers watching the 
platform nearby. Activate the unit when the area is clear.

--- Absorption Unit 2 --------------------------------------------------------

The second unit is on top of one of the buildings next to the bridge south of 
the ruined research centre in the northwest corner of northern Unity Heights. 
Use the walkways on the west side of the building to reach the top.

There are a couple of explosive weapon-wielding Cell soldiers on the roof, so 
use your Flocket Launcher or Homing Launcher to take them down. As well, 
you'll encounter one armoured soldier wielding a Turret Machine Gun in the 
doorway just below the Absorption Unit platform. There should be an explosive 
barrel nearby you can use to kill him.

Climb up to the Absorption Unit platform when the area is clear and stand on 
one of the configuration panels to activate the unit.

--- Absorption Unit 3 --------------------------------------------------------

The final unit is on one of the buildings west of the ruined security centre 
at the northeast end of northern Unity Heights. Cell soldiers are rife in this 
area of the city, so go at it with a Mach HMG-120 and a Homing Launcher or 
Flocket Launcher.

Start by jumping over the makeshift barricade covering the alley between the 
two buildings. There is a mess of soldiers on the patio behind the two 
buildings, so immediately throw a couple of Cluster or Shrapnel Grenades to 
wipe them out. There is also an armoured soldier wielding a Turret Machine Gun 
on either side of the walkway behind the buildings, so be careful. Take them 
out with an explosive weapon and then start climbing up to the Absorption Unit 
platform.

Climb the column of windows along the north side of the building to reach the 
rooftop. There's a turret emplacement at the top, so take out the gunner 
before jumping up to the Absorption Unit platform. There are two more enemies 
to contend with (if you haven't already taken care of them): another armoured 
soldier wielding a Turret Machine Gun and a sniper. To ensure the platform is 
clear, toss a Shrapnel or Cluster Grenade onto it before jumping over to 
activate the unit.

--- Research Ruins Beacon ----------------------------------------------------

Ensure your Agent is equipped with a UV Shotgun, either a Homing Launcher or 
Flocket Launcher and Cluster Grenades before setting out. You'll have unlocked 
the Flocket Launcher when you levelled your Agent's Explosives skill to level 
three, but the Homing Launcher and Cluster Grenades are Cell weapons (the 
Homing Launcher is a bit more powerful than the Flocket Launcher).

To acquire a Cell weapon, you must take it from a dead Cell soldier and then 
bring that weapon to the marker at an Agency Landing Zone to store it. Once 
you've done that, you can then select the weapon at a Landing Zone or when 
redeploying your Agent. Cluster Grenades are quite common, but you can only 
find a Homing Launcher at Cell Tactical Locations in Unity Heights. 

You can switch your Agent's weapons at an Agency Landing Zone or by selecting 
the "Extraction" option in the System section of the Intel Screen and 
redeploying him. 

This Beacon deployment area is inside the ruined research centre in the 
northwest corner of northern Unity Heights. Drop through the opening on top of 
the circular building in the middle of the research centre to reach the Freak 
Lair. Stand on the Beacon Drop Point marker once inside the lair and call the 
helicopter to get started.

Remain at the bottom of the lair and wait for the first giant Freak to appear 
from the southeastern entry point. Immediately start firing rockets at the 
giant when he appears. He'll make a beeline for the Beacon and begin pounding 
on it. Toss a Cluster Grenade when he reaches the Beacon to preserve your 
rocket ammo.

The other attacking Freaks in this lair will perch themselves on the circular 
walkway above the Beacon and throw projectiles at the Beacon from there. 
Despite these enemies, remain on the ground floor for as long as you can. When 
attacking Freaks appear on your tracker, equip your Homing Launcher, lock on 
to one of the Freaks and fire a rocket at him to take him out. Jump around to 
avoid the Freaks on the ground floor.

Whenever you're not eliminating marked Freaks on the walkway, use your UV 
Shotgun to clear away the unmarked Freaks around the Beacon. Unmarked Freaks 
will still attack the Beacon if you're not close enough to distract them. As 
long as you remain on the ground floor, the Freaks there will ignore the 
Beacon and attack you instead. It's easy to keep these Freaks at bay with the 
UV Shotgun.

Another giant Freak will appear when the Beacon is 50 per cent charged. If 
you've been saving your Cluster Grenades, you can take him down with only a 
couple (provided your Agent's Explosives skill is at level five and you're 
playing on a difficulty level no higher than Ruthless). Save your rocket ammo 
for the attacking Freaks still to come.

When you run out of rocket ammo, you may have to take to the walkway to clear 
off the attacking Freaks when they appear. By the time you run out of rocket 
ammo, however, the Beacon will most likely be almost fully charged and 
hopefully still in relatively good condition. If the Beacon isn't nearly 
destroyed, you can probably ignore the attacking Freaks and just continue 
clearing the Freaks below with your UV Shotgun. If the Beacon is in bad shape 
and you do need to kill the attackers, you can get onto the walkway by first 
jumping onto the pillar south of the Beacon and then up to the walkway.

Continue defending the Beacon from Freaks until the Beacon is fully charged.

==============================================================================
...Refinery Infiltration...............................................[p10]..
==============================================================================

This objective becomes active once you've detonated the initial nine Beacons 
in Pacific City. Before you can move on to the final Beacon at Agency Tower, 
you must crash the Refinery at the west end of northern Hope Springs and open 
the five valves there to restore the supply of fuel to the tower. A ridiculous 
number of Cell soldiers guard each valve, so you'd best prepare well.

It is recommended that you equip your Agent with a Mach HMG-120, either a 
Homing Launcher or Flocket Launcher, and Cluster Grenades. You'll have 
unlocked the Flocket Launcher when you levelled your Agent's Explosives skill 
to level three, but the Mach HMG-120 and Cluster Grenades are Cell weapons.

To acquire a Cell weapon, you must take it from a dead Cell soldier and then 
bring the weapon to the marker at an Agency Landing Zone to store it. Once 
you've done that, you can then select the weapon at a Landing Zone or when 
redeploying your Agent.

Cluster Grenades are quite common, but you can only find a Homing Launcher at 
Cell-held Tactical Locations in Unity Heights. The Mach HMG-120 is sometimes 
used by Cell soldiers defending Tactical Locations in Unity Heights.

Make your way to the Refinery at the east end of northern Hope Springs when 
you're ready to go. The initial four valves appear on the tracker as red 
exclamation mark icons. It does not matter in which order you activate the 
valves, so just fight your way to each valve and clear the surrounding 
rooftops of enemies before attempting to open it.

Use your Homing Launcher, Flocket Launcher or grenades to clear each valve 
platform and any enemies in the near vicinity. Snipers and enemies with 
explosive weapons are the biggest threats here, so target them first. If 
you're continuously being pelted by explosives and your Agent is losing health 
fast, drop down to street level and take cover behind a building until his 
health is restored.

To open a valve, position your Agent in front of the turnwheel and press the Y 
button when the prompt appears. Getting this prompt to appear is a bit 
finicky, so it's important that there aren't any enemies nearby while you're 
attempting to open a valve.

Once you've opened the first four valves, a fifth will appear on your tracker. 
This valve is on the pipes at the northwest end of the Refinery. Fight your 
way to the final valve, toss a grenade onto the platform to clear away the 
enemies there, then move in and open the valve to complete the mission.

If your Agent is killed while pursuing this objective, there's no need to re-
open any valves. Just redeploy your Agent at the nearest drop point and 
continue on to the next one (but be more careful this time!).

==============================================================================
...Agency Tower........................................................[p11]..
==============================================================================

Once you've infiltrated the Refinery and opened all five valves, you then must 
head to Agency Tower to detonate the final Beacon. You'll have to defend the 
three cores charging the Beacon from an onslaught of advanced Freaks, so 
ensure you're well-prepared before setting out.

As you've made it this far, presumably your Agent's Agility, Firearms, 
Explosives and Strength skills are all at least level four. It is recommended 
that you equip your Agent with a Mach HMG-120, either a Homing Launcher or 
Flocket Launcher (the Homing Launcher is a bit more powerful than the Flocket 
Launcher), and Cluster Grenades.

You'll have unlocked the Flocket Launcher when you levelled your Agent's 
Explosives skill to level three, but the Mach HMG-120, Homing Launcher and 
Cluster Grenades are Cell weapons, so you'll have to deliver those to the 
marker at an Agency Landing Zone before you can select those weapons when 
redeploying your Agent.

When you're ready to get started, make your way to Agency Tower and follow the 
white trail that appears up to the Beacon Charge marker. Stand on the marker 
and press the Back button to begin charging the Beacon.

You will soon receive word that hostiles have been detected inside the energy 
field. The enemies you'll face here are former-agents-turned-freaks. These 
guys are powerful and there are a lot of them, so be ready for a tough fight.

There are three power cores charging the Beacon. You must defend each core in 
order, moving on to the next only when the previous core is fully charged. The 
blue meter in the top-right corner of the screen indicates the charging 
progress of the current core, while the red meter below it indicates the 
core's condition. You'll fail the mission if the Freaks manage to destroy any 
of the cores.

At each core, the Freaks will start by attacking the core at its base, moving 
higher and higher up the core structure as the battle progresses. Start on the 
lowest platform and continue killing the Freaks that appear there until the 
Freaks start climbing higher up, at which point use the ramps on either side 
of the platform to ascend to their level. The narrator will inform you of the 
Freaks' current position on the core structure, instructing you to move up to 
the mid- or top-level platforms to clear them out.

As when defending any Beacon, while defending Agency Tower you will encounter 
attacking Freaks who are marked on your tracker and HUD and will only attack 
the objective, as well as unmarked Freaks who serve no other purpose than to 
make defending the objective as difficult as possible.

For the most part, you'll want to take down unmarked Freaks with your Mach 
HMG-120, as these guys will come at you head on and you don't want to risk 
your Agent taking damage because he's too close to a rocket blast. Try your 
best to preserve rocket ammo, as you'll need plenty to defend the final core. 
Use your Homing Launcher to take down groups of two or more marked Freaks 
while using your Mach HMG-120 to gun down any that are close enough. There is 
an explosive pack attached to the vents marked Freaks perch on, so target 
these explosives with your Mach HMG-120 when a Freak is there to blow them 
away.

When the first power core is fully charged, move on to the next one by 
continuing up the ramps until you spot a numbered arrow on the ground pointing 
to the next core. Follow the arrows to the second core and prepare for another 
wave of Freaks. There are weapon crates near the start you can go to if you're 
low on ammo, though it's best to stick with a Mach HMG-120 and Homing Launcher 
if you've been frugal with your weapons. 

At each power core you will face an increasingly large wave of Freaks. 
Defending power cores one and two is not difficult with the right weapons, but 
things can quickly get out of hand at power core three. There seem to be many 
more unmarked Freaks at the final core, and they can make it difficult to take 
out the Freaks attacking the core before things get out of control.

To maintain control at the third core, gun down approaching unmarked Freaks 
with your Mach HMG-120 (aim for their heads) and then switch to your Homing 
Launcher and blast any attacking Freaks on the platforms above or below you. 
You won't have time to run up and down the ramps to reach attacking Freaks, so 
just clear them out with your Homing Launcher as best you can from however far 
up the core structure you are. Move to the top-level platform once Freaks 
start appearing there and use your Homing Launcher to keep thing under 
control.

Defend the final core until it's fully charged to complete the final phase of 
Project Sunburst, ridding Pacific City of Freaks and winning you the game! Be 
sure to sit through the credits for an additional cutscene that hints at a 
sequel (or perhaps some downloadable content).

 [*08] \                     - Optional Objectives -
--------\=====================================================================

-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
 - Tactical Locations
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
There are 27 Tactical Locations in Pacific City. These locations, marked on 
your map and tracker by red C icons, are occupied by Cell soldiers. You may 
find certain areas of the city more difficult to move through due to a high 
number of Cell soldiers there. If so, you're likely near a Tactical Location.

Tactical Locations can be captured to remove the Cell soldiers in that area of 
the city. Some of these locations will be converted to Agency Landing Zones 
when captured. Agency Landing Zones contain weapon crates and an Agency 
Marker. Press the Back button while standing on the marker at an Agency 
Landing Zone and you can request a weapon or vehicle drop. As well, you can 
store vehicles and Cell weapons at Agency Landing Zones to unlock them. Once 
you've stored a vehicle or weapon, you can then request that item at any 
Landing Zone or when redeploying your Agent.

To initiate an assault on a Tactical Location, stand on the Cell symbol the 
icon on your tracker is pointing to and press the Back button to call for an 
Agency Helicopter. Once you've done that, enemy soldiers will begin to enter 
the area. Each enemy will be marked on your tracker with a red blip.

To take control of a Tactical Location once you've initiated an assault, you 
must kill enough of the Cell soldiers that spawn to deplete the meter in the 
top-right corner of the screen. 

When fighting for a Tactical Location, don't stray too far from the marker 
there, otherwise you'll lose the location. The tactical assault will end if 
your Agent is killed, however if you get back to the Tactical Location quickly 
enough and initiate another assault, you may not have to face as many enemy 
soldiers as you did before.

Some Tactical Locations are part of a Cell Stronghold. After capturing one of 
these locations, a message will appear on screen indicating your progress 
toward capturing the Cell Stronghold and the number of Tactical Locations 
needed to completely take control. It is important to capture these remaining 
Tactical Locations as soon as possible to take complete control of the 
stronghold, otherwise Cell can fight back and retake the parts of the 
stronghold you've captured so far. The locations needed to capture the 
stronghold are always close to each other, so check your map and head for the 
next spot as soon as you can.

Tactical Locations pit you against a large number of enemy soldiers, so it's 
important to prepare well. Levelling your Agent's skills will make capturing 
these locations easier, as will unlocking more powerful weapons. It's best to 
equip your Agent with a powerful automatic weapon such as the Mach HMG-120, an 
explosive weapon such as the Homing Launcher and either Cluster Grenades or 
Shrapnel Grenades.

Capturing Tactical Locations becomes tougher as you move from Hope Springs to 
Green Bay and Unity Heights. Tactical Locations in Green Bay and Unity Heights 
are usually guarded by armoured enemies on turreted weapons and many snipers. 
Before initiating an assault, use an explosive weapon such as the Flocket 
Launcher or Homing Launcher to take out any enemies on turrets as well as any 
snipers on surrounding rooftops. Then, after initiating the assault, sprint 
away and find somewhere to take cover so you can restore any lost health 
before taking on Cell.

Enemies defending Tactical Locations will often enter the area in groups of 
three or more. Determine where the entry points are and use an explosive 
weapon to wipe out the groups of soldiers as soon as they appear.

Capture all 27 Tactical Locations to unlock the "Location, Location, 
Location" Xbox 360 achievement worth 50 gamer points.

-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
 - Freak Breaches
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
Freak Breaches are similar to Tactical Locations, but are considerably easier. 
These events pit you against a large number of Freaks. These Freaks will 
continuously emerge from the breach until you've killed enough to deplete the 
meter in the top-right corner of the screen. 

UV weapons are the way to go when tackling a Freak Breach, as these weapons 
are super effective against Freaks. The UV Shotgun and UV Grenades will 
definitely serve you well.

Freak Breaches can only be triggered during the late evening and nighttime 
hours. When it's the appropriate time, travel to one of the yellow Freak icons 
on your map and tracker. The ground will begin to shake. Remain within range 
of the Freak Breach to activate the event. Use your UV Weapons to take down 
marked Freaks as they appear. 

Once you've depleted the meter in the top-right corner of the screen, an 
Agency Helicopter will fly in and plug the breach with explosives.

There are 25 Freak Breach locations in Pacific City. Close them all to unlock 
"The Closer" Xbox 360 achievement worth 10 gamer points. Only 10 Freak 
Breaches are available at the start. Unlock more by completing the breaches 
available to you.

 - Road Races
-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~
In a Road Race, you must speed through a series of waypoints as quickly as you 
can. Each race consists of one or more laps. Travel to one of the purple 
chequered flag icons on your map and tracker to participate. 

You can use whatever vehicle you'd like to clear these races. The obvious 
choice is the Agency Supercar, which is unlocked by attaining a Driving skill 
level of three. The Agency SUV, unlocked by attaining a Driving skill level of 
four, is sometimes a better choice if the course is largely off-road.

Many of the races require knowledge of the course to do well. Here, only 
practice will help you finish the race or get a better time. Though you aren't 
up against any direct competition, if you're connected to Xbox Live your times 
will be compared with other players' on the Road Races Leaderboards.

Although there isn't an explicit time limit for completing these races, you 
must complete them within a certain amount of time. If you take too long, 
you'll lose the race. How fast you must complete a race isn't stated in game, 
so just run through as quickly as you can.

There are 15 Road Races in Pacific City. Complete all 15 to unlock the "Street 
Racer" Xbox 360 achievement worth 20 gamer points.

Only five races are unlocked from the start; complete these five races to 
unlock five more and then complete those five races to unlock the final five. 
Each set of races is more challenging than the last, allotting you less and 
less time to clear the waypoints.

The objective of a Rooftop Race is to run through a series of waypoints as 
quickly as you can. Each race consists of one or more laps. Travel to one of 
the green chequered flag icons on your map and tracker to participate.

Rooftop Races must be undertaken on foot. The higher your Agent's Agility 
skill level, the easier it will be to get a better time.

 [*09] \                       - Agility Orbs -
--------\=====================================================================

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For maps showing the location of all 500 Agility Orbs, visit:

http://www.supercheats.com/guides/crackdown-2/agility-orbs

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

Collecting Agility Orbs is one way you can level your Agent's Agility skill. 
Increasing your Agent's Agility skill level will allow him to jump higher and 
run faster.

There are 500 Agility Orbs scattered about Pacific City. There are 231 Agility 
Orbs in Hope Springs, 140 in Green Bay, 115 in Unity Heights and 14 on Agency 
Island.

Collect all of the Agility Orbs in Pacific City to unlock the "King of the
World" Xbox 360 achievement worth 50 gamer points.

Agility Orbs are found on top of buildings and other high-up places. Most of 
these orbs are in plain sight, although some are difficult to get to.

Below is a list of tips to aid you in your quest to collect them all:

1) Use Orb Ping: Press up on the D-Pad and all nearby Agility Orbs, Hidden 
Orbs and Online Orbs will flash briefly on your tracker in the bottom-left 
corner of the screen. Agility Orbs are denoted by green blips.

You cannot use Orb Ping continuously and nearby orbs will only appear on the 
tracker briefly, but it is a useful feature nonetheless. When you use Orb 
Ping, you can only use it again once the green border around the tracker 
disappears. You can zoom out the tracker by entering and exiting the Agency 
Intel screen (using the Start button). Ping right after exiting the Intel 
screen to detect orbs further out.

Use Orb Ping in conjunction with the map provided with this guide. Travel to 
the location depicted on the map and then use Orb Ping to make certain you're 
searching the right area.

2) Keep Track: There's little worse in an open world game than taking on the 
task of gathering a huge number of collectibles only to come up one or two 
short at the end. As such, it is wise to keep track of the Agility Orbs you 
collect from the start.

If you're using the map provided with this guide, be sure to tick off each 
marker as you collect the corresponding orb. If you're viewing the map on a 
desktop computer or laptop, copy the map over to an image editing program such 
as Paint and use a paintbrush tool to tick off each orb as you collect them. 
If you don't have a computer near you while playing the game, you can print 
out the individual area maps and tick off each orb with a pen or pencil.

3) Use Agency Intel: Fortunately for completionists, Ruffian Games have 
included a way to track collected orbs in-game. Take advantage of this.

To use this feature, start by entering the "Achievements" section of the 
Agency Intel screen. Once in the Achievements section, use the Left Stick to 
scroll down to the "King of the World" achievement to view your progress. 
Press the A button once you have the achievement selected to view a map 
showing all of the Agility Orbs you've collected thus far. As well, in the 
bottom-left corner of the screen is a list of all four areas of the city and 
the number of orbs you've collected in each one. This list is especially 
useful if worst comes to worst and you wind up missing one or more orbs after 
following the map, as you could then limit your search to a particular area of 
the city and use Orb Ping to track down any remaining orbs.

4) Come Back Later: Some Agility Orbs require an Agility skill level of four 
or five to reach. If you can't find a way up to an orb that appears on the 
map, come back to it later once you've increased your Agent's Agility skill 
level by collecting orbs that are easier to reach.

5) Get a Helicopter: There are four helicopters parked on the helipad east of 
Agency Island. Reaching the helipad requires a Wingsuit, so you'll need an 
Agent with an Agility skill at level five. 

A few of the Agility Orbs seem to require a helicopter to reach and others are 
just much less tedious to reach with one. Unlike with Hidden Orbs, you'll have 
to actually get out of the helicopter to collect an Agility Orb.

 [*10] \                        - Hidden Orbs -
--------\=====================================================================

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For maps showing the location of all 300 Hidden Orbs, visit:

http://www.supercheats.com/guides/crackdown-2/hidden-orbs

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

There are 300 Hidden Orbs in Pacific City. There are 87 in Hope Springs, 101 
in Green Bay, 105 in Unity Heights and seven on Agency Island.

Collecting a Hidden Orb will grant your Agent a small amount of experience in 
all five skill areas.

Collect all of the Hidden Orbs in Pacific City to unlock the "Sixth Sense"
Xbox 360 achievement worth 30 gamer points.

A small number of Hidden Orbs live up to their name. Most are quite easy to 
track down, and you will have an easier and easier time finding them once you 
become familiar with what types of places they tend to be hidden.

Below is a list of tips to aid you in your quest to collect them all:

1) Use Orb Ping: Press up on the D-Pad and all nearby Agility Orbs, Hidden 
Orbs and Online Orbs will flash briefly on your tracker in the bottom-left 
corner of the screen. Hidden Orbs are denoted by blue blips.

You cannot use Orb Ping continuously and nearby orbs will only appear on the 
tracker briefly, but it is a useful feature nonetheless. When you use Orb 
Ping, you can only use it again once the green border around the tracker 
disappears. You can zoom out the tracker by entering and exiting the Agency 
Intel screen (using the Start button). Ping right after exiting the Intel 
screen to detect orbs further out.

Orb Ping is invaluable when hunting for Hidden Orbs. Be sure to use Orb Ping 
in conjunction with the map provided in this guide. Travel to the location 
depicted on the map and then use Orb Ping to make certain you're searching the 
right area.

2) Look Around: Some Hidden Orbs can be quite difficult to find. In these 
cases, using Orb Ping is a must. Once you're standing on the spot the blue 
blip appears on your tracker whenever you ping, start looking around for 
possible spots the orb might be hidden. Determining where the orb could be 
hidden will become easier as you collect more and start to become familiar 
with the types of places they tend to be hidden.

The trickiest Hidden Orbs to find are those underground. If you're having a 
tough time finding a particular orb and you've used Orb Ping to determine that
you're searching the right area, start looking around for a tunnel entrance or
some other way underground. For example, there are several orbs hidden in 
underground parking lots.

Some common spots for Hidden Orbs are below bridges, between rocks and inside 
ruined buildings.

3) Keep Track: There's little worse in an open world game than taking on the 
task of gathering a huge number of collectibles only to come up one or two 
short at the end. As such, it is wise to keep track of the Hidden Orbs you 
collect from the start.

If you're using the map provided with this guide, be sure to tick off each 
marker as you collect the corresponding orb. If you're viewing the map on a 
desktop computer or laptop, copy the map over to an image editing program such
as Paint and use a paintbrush tool to tick off each orb as you collect them. 
If you don't have a computer near you while playing the game, you can print 
out the individual area maps and tick off each orb with a pen or pencil.

4) Use Agency Intel: Fortunately for completionists, Ruffian Games have 
included a way to track collected orbs in-game. Take advantage of this.

Agency Intel screen. Once in the Achievements section, use the Left Stick to

the Hidden Orbs you've collected thus far. As well, in the bottom-left corner 
of the screen is a list of all four areas of the city and the number of orbs 
you've collected in each one. This list is especially useful if worst comes to
worst and you wind up missing one or more orbs after following the map, as you
could then limit your search to a particular area of the city and use Orb Ping
to track down any remaining orbs.

5) Get a Helicopter: There are four helicopters parked on the helipad east of
Agency Island. Reaching the helipad requires a Wingsuit, so you'll need an 
Agent with an Agility skill at level five. 

Some Hidden Orbs require a helicopter to reach and others are just much less 
tedious to reach with one. Unlike with Agility Orbs, you can collect Hidden 
Orbs while in a helicopter.

 [*11] \                       - Online Orbs -
--------\=====================================================================

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For maps showing the location of all 80 Online Orbs, visit:

http://www.supercheats.com/guides/crackdown-2/online-orbs

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

Online Orbs require an active Internet connection and at least one other 
player to collect. There must be at least one other player within a certain 
range of an Online Orb to collect it.

There are 80 Online Orbs in Pacific City. There are 25 in Hope Springs, 30 in 
Green Bay, 24 in Unity Heights and one on Agency Island.

As with Hidden Orbs, collecting an Online Orb will grant your Agent a small 
amount of experience in all five skill areas.

Collect all of the Online Orbs in Pacific City to unlock the "LIVE and let
LIVE" Xbox 360 achievement worth 10 gamer points.

Below are a couple of tips to aid you in your quest to collect them all:

1) Use Orb Ping: Press up on the D-Pad and all nearby Agility Orbs, Hidden 
Orbs and Online Orbs will flash briefly on your tracker in the bottom-left 
corner of the screen. Online Orbs are denoted by grey blips.

You cannot use Orb Ping continuously and nearby orbs will only appear on the 
tracker briefly, but it is a useful feature nonetheless. When you use Orb 
Ping, you can only use it again once the green border around the tracker 
disappears. You can zoom out the tracker by entering and exiting the Agency 
Intel screen (using the Start button). Ping right after exiting the Intel 
screen to detect orbs further out.

Use Orb Ping in conjunction with the map provided in this guide. Travel to the 
location depicted on the map and then use Orb Ping to make certain you're

task of gathering a huge number of collectibles only to come up one or two 
short at the end. As such, it is wise to keep track of the Online Orbs you 
collect from the start.

If you're using the map provided with this guide, tick off each marker as you 
collect the corresponding orb. If you're viewing the map on a desktop computer 
or laptop, copy the map over to an image editing program such as Paint and use

For maps showing the location of all 30 Renegade Agility Orbs and 15 Renegade
Driving Orbs, visit:

http://www.supercheats.com/guides/crackdown-2/renegade-orbs

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

There are two types of Renegade Orbs: Renegade Agility Orbs and Renegade 
Driving Orbs. Renegade Orbs won't stay put, forcing you to chase after them in 
a vehicle or on foot.

There are 15 Renegade Driving Orbs and 30 Renegade Agility Orbs in Pacific 
City. Of the Renegade Driving Orbs, there are five in Hope Springs, five in 
Green Bay and five in Unity Heights. As for the Renegade Agility Orbs, there 
are 10 in Hope Springs, 10 in Green Bay, nine in Unity Heights and one on 
Agency Island.

Collect all 15 Renegade Driving Orbs to unlock the "Renegade Racer" Xbox 360 
achievement and all 30 Renegade Agility Orbs to unlock the "Renegade Racer" 
achievement. Both achievements are worth 20 gamer points a piece.

Unlike with the other types of orbs, Renegade Orbs will appear on your map and 
tracker without Orb Ping. Renegade Driving Orbs are denoted by a rotating 
purple icon and Renegade Agility Orbs by a rotating green icon.

Renegade Driving Orbs can only be collected while in a vehicle and Renegade 
Agility Orbs can only be collected while on foot. Catching these Renegade Orbs 
can be irritating, so they're best left to the end. 

The ideal vehicle for catching Renegade Driving Orbs is the Agency Supercar, 
unlocked by attaining a Driving skill level of three.

You'll need an Agility skill level of at least three to catch a renegade 
Agility Orb, although a few do seem to require a skill level five.

how each stunt can be done, visit:

http://www.supercheats.com/guides/crackdown-2/vehicle-stunt-rings

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

There are 40 Vehicle Stunt Rings in Pacific City.

Vehicle Stunt Rings appear in the world as purple rings in the air. Completing 
one of these stuns requires jumping a vehicle through one or more rings. 

The Agency SUV, unlocked by attaining a Driving skill level of four, is the 
ideal vehicle for completing Stunt Rings. While in an SUV, you can hold the B 
button to jump. Hold the B button for a longer time to jump higher. You can 
also stick to flat surfaces while in an SUV by holding the B button.

Complete all 40 Vehicle Stunt Rings to unlock the "Stuntman" Xbox 360 
achievement worth 20 gamer points.

http://www.supercheats.com/guides/crackdown-2/wingsuit-stunt-rings

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

When you level your Agent's Agility skill to level five, you'll unlock the 
Wingsuit and 10 Wingsuit Stunt Rings will appear in Pacific City.

Wingsuit Stunt Rings appear in the world as green rings high up in the air. 
Completing one of these stunts requires using the Wingsuit to glide through a 
series of rings.

Complete all 10 Wingsuit Stunt Rings to unlock the "Wingsuit Racer" Xbox 360 
achievement worth 20 gamer points.

Wingsuit Stunt Rings are more difficult to complete than Vehicle Stunt Rings, 
likely requiring several attempts and a mastery of the Wingsuit.

Gliding with the Wingsuit is fairly simple. Once you've activated the Wingsuit 
by holding the Y button while in the air, push up on the Left Stick to dive 
down. When the trail behind your Agent turns from blue to red, push the Left 
Stick down to fly higher. Continue doing this and you can glide indefinitely. 
Be careful not to push down on the Left Stick too soon or too late, as doing 
so will cause your Agent to lose altitude and make it more difficult to remain 
in the air.

Wingsuit Stunt Rings are placed high up in the air. The green ring is the 
first ring of the stunt, while subsequent rings you must glide through are 
orange. You must glide through these rings in order. When you pass through 
one, the next ring in the series will turn green.

The starting point for these rings is usually just off the top of a tall 
building. The easiest way to reach these stunt rings is to use a helicopter. 
There are four helicopters parked on the helipad east of Agency Island. You'll 
need to use the Wingsuit to reach the helipad.
