Funny little glitch I found

#1DurableDoor024Posted 2/3/2013 11:10:31 AM
When you're swimming, get "You're going out of bounds, turn back now" timer going, and right before it hits 0, fast travel somewhere, when you load in, you'll be in a glitched out of bounds (literally) area that is all water where you're stuck till you drown or fast travel again. Not useful or really harmful in any way, just wanted to tell everyone something I found. Do I get a cookie?

Need a sig? Why not Zoidberg?

Cookies will only be awarded to someone who can figure out how to get to the second island before the story allows you and finds a way to unlock the second island weapons.

That person will also get coupons for 1 free internet.

This and a lot of water glitches are pretty well known. Sometimes you can swim up into the air. That's really the most useful one in that it makes travel easy until you land.

You can get to the second island early if you're using a different save file on a profile that has done any trial of Rakyat on the south island. The problem is, you can't buy weapons before you get there story wise. It's not really useful unless you want the Bushman from the beginning of the game.

If you're so inclined, here's the detail on how I did it. First, my Save 1 has already completed all the trials of Rakyat. I start new game on Save 2. As soon as you can bring up your map. Press the RB to select any trial you have already done from Save 1. Specifically select a trial on the south island. As soon as it starts, hit start then press X to quit and then A to confirm. When all is said and done, you'll be standing in front of the the red trial stone on the south island!

That sounds worth checking out. Are you still able to earn the Ripper though? I've had problems with previous game saves conflicting with unlocking the Ripper, and that's a weapon I like to have in my arsenal.

I was wondering where that was? To be fair, I probably haven't completed more than 1 or 2 trials on my second save because most of the time I quit out just to get radio towers and pick up weapons of privateers. Even when I did complete them, I think it would say that I failed because I didn't beat my previous score. I'll have to actually try completing more trials to see if I could get the Ripper back. I'll test this the next time I play.

I think your method here looks pretty sound. You only have to complete 6 Trials to get the Ripper. My guess is not doing any Trials on one save, except for one on the southern island, and then doing a second game and then using the Trials there to unlock the Ripper.

I'm going to give this a go, but it's going to take a while to set up. Basically I have been wanting a way to have a l337 game save to just reload every time I want to play instead of having to collect Relics and loot every single game.

By the way, is there a way to save a game in multiple file locations?

I'm not sure if the title update fixed my trials => early south island glitch but I cannot replicate what I did when starting a new game. However, in testing out the update I have figured out a work-around for obtaining the Ripper. Choosing not to take the title update, I am forced to play offline and therefore have no previous records on any of the trials. (I guess my scores aren't associated with the files on my HDD). I suppose you could also just disconnect your xbox from the internet. At least now I can actually complete the trials. As I said before, you don't get credit for completing them on subsequent playthroughs unless you beat your previous score.
