They are weapons, ammo, and Hostages. You have to pick up Hostages and you need new and better weapons or else you won't beat the game. All you have to do to get them after you find them is run over them. 0.1 Hostages In every level you have to rescue the Hostages (if you don't rescue them then you won't beat them level). There are x-number of Hostages in a level. Deppending on the difficulty level you're on you have to try to save all of them. The Predator will try to kill them. You will know when this will happen when the cross hairs (from the Predato's gun) reach the Hostage. When it does they will get shot and their bodyparts will fly all over the screen. If you run into the cross hairs them you will see your body parts all over the screen. This will only happen if you are trying to kill yourself OR if the Predator is chasing you will the cross hairs (this will only happen in certain parts of certain levels). Here is a diagram showing how many Hostages are allowed to get blown up without losing the level. Hostages Easy 3 Medium 2 Hard 1 On the easy level of difficulty you will most likely not have any Hostages get blown up. On harder levels of difficulty you might have some of you Hostages get blown away but you never know. 0.2 Extra Points You can pick up needles and other drug related things from dead Thugs for extra points. If you're wondering he DOES NOT use them, he only collects them. Most of them are only worth 100 points, but there are a lot of them in the game. The easiest way to collect them without having to run everywhere to get them you should run around them (to get them into a grounp) them turn around and hit them with a bomb and a couple R-F or Handgun shots. When you do this you can run up to the place where the group was and pick all the goodies up in less then a second. 0.3 Weapons If you walk (or run) over a weapon that is on the ground it will be put in your arrsonal of weapons. If you run over a weapon that you all ready have you will get some more ammo for it (you usually get 8 or so most more bullets/bombs/whatever for that weapon). There are plenty of weapons on the ground, so pick them up. 0.4 Body Armor/Lives When ever you run over some body armor you get 100% health. If you run over a Medkit you get 100% health and an exrta life (a max of ten lives). I usually have 8 or nine lives before I go to the seventh level. It is easy to do that because there are on average three to six lives per level. You will usually die two to four times in each level. So you will (hopefully) get more lives then you loose before the seventh level. *************** 1.0 The Weapons *************** There are eight weapons thoughout the game with different advantages and disadvantages. These weapons should be used to kill different types of enemies (Shotgun= Predator, Handgun= normal Thugs). 1.1 Handgun Fire Rate: Good Damage: Poor (Least damage out of all the weapons) Don't use against: Cars, Semis, Super Predator Used against: Thugs (all types), Motorcycles, Helicopters This is your primary weapon (and starting weapon) that has unlimited ammo, but does minimal damage. It can be a rapid fire weapon if the shooting button is held down. Use this weapon on everything from Thugs to easy Helicopters (not on Cars or armored Helicopters). You should always have this weapon out and held down to kill enemies as soon as they appear (except for Cars and up). 1.2 Bombs Firing Rate: Slow Damage: Powerful Don't use agianst: Thugs(unless in groups) or Motorcycles Use against: Cars, Helicopters, Predators This is a powerful weapon that has an explosion radius. Ammo is pretty easy to find compared to the Shotgun or Laser. This should be used on Cars mainly. The bad thing about this weapon is that when you throw it, it lands and doesn't blow up for about a half second. So you should only use this weapon on non-moving enemies. 1.3 Rapid Fire Firing Rate: Very Fast Damage: Good Don't use agianst: Nothing Use against: Everything This weapon shoots three bullets in a triangle shape. This is the fastest weapon in the game. Use it against anything (including Semis if you run out of Bombs). This should be the 1st weapon (besides the Handgun) that you should use. The best thing about this weapon is that every three bullets that fly out of the gun only count as one. 1.4 Spread Fire Firing Rate: Fast Damage: Powerful Don't use agianst: Thugs (unless in huge groups), Motorcycles, Helicopters (unless there is two or more), Cars. Use against: Predators, Semis When shot, this weapon almost covers the entire screen and can take out lots of Thugs, Cars (ammo killer), and Helicopters in groups (end of Level 6). You should also use it agianst the Semi Bosses. You should only use this weapon when you are in deap trouble because ammo for this weapon is very hard to find. 1.5 Shotgun Firing Rate: Slow Damage: Very Powerful Don't use agianst: Thugs, Motorcycles, Cars Use agianst: Semis, Predators, Helicopters This is the MOST POWERFUL gun in the game. It will case away the Predator in Level 5 with one shot (the mini-boss Predators). Only use this weapon on hard enemies or Bosses. Ammo is hard to find (the most I've found was 16 or 24 bullets). You shouldn't use this weapon against Cars because it takes two shots to blow it up (or one shot and two Handgun bullets). 1.6 Net Firing Rate: Slow Damage: O.K. to Powerful Don't use agianst: Thugs, Cars, Helicopters, Motorcycles, Semis Use agianst: Predators I never use this weapon so I can't tell you much except that it is powerful and you should use it on the Predators only. I think it also pushes your opponents back giving you some breathing room (just like the Predators do to you). 1.7 Laser Firing Rate: Good Damage: Very Powerful Don't use agianst: Thugs, Motorcycles, Cars, Helicopters, Semis Use agianst: Predators and the Super Predator This is the Second most powerful weapon in the game. You should only use it agianst the Super Predator (Level 7 Boss). If you have to, you could use it agianst the Predators (the Boss Predators, not regular). 1.8 Flying Blades Firing Rate: Good Damage: Powerful Don't use agianst: Thugs, Motorcycles, Helicopters, Cars, Semis Use agianst: Predators (all types) You should only use this powerful weapon on the Predators (because it will kill them with one hit and you can hide around corners and still hit them). *Note* You can have up to four of these on the screen at the same time. But don't run around all the time with four Blades up because you will run out very fast and there are not very many Blades that you can pick up. *************** 2.0 The Enemies *************** There are five types of enemies each with their own advantages and disadvantages. 2.1 Thugs Weapon: Knives or Chainsaws Levels in: 1,2,3,4,5,6 Weapons you should use: Handgun, R-F These guys are everywhere. Shoot then once and they will be no more. Another thing to do is run around and shoot them while they are in a huge group. They are easier to hit this way and you don't have to run around to pick up all the things that they leave behind. 2.1.1 Gun Thugs Weapon: Handguns Levels in: 2,3,4,5,6 Weapon you should use: Handgun To kill these guys and not get shot is hard to do, but if you run around like a chicken with its head cut off. When you do this it is very hard for them to hit you (just don't run into them). Now turn and nail them. These enemies will also leave goodies for you. 2.2 Cars Weapon: Handgun Levels in: 1,3,6 Weapon you should use: R-F, Bombs To kill this guy (er... Car), just run up to it and hit it with a couple Bombs or R-F shots. They sometimes have ammo or lives under them. You can stay back and shoot them with the R-F but that is hard to do so... run up and go all kamikaze. Good Luck :) 2.3 Motorcycles Weapon: Handgun (and they will try to ram you too) Levels in: 3,6 Weapons you should use: Handgun and R-F Shoot them with a couple rounds and they will blow up. Watch out because they will try to ram you. It is very hard to shoot these down but if you are by a wall they might run into it (hehehehe). When they do this they won't drop anything but you won't have to worry about them for a little bit. 2.4 Helicopters Weapon: Handgun Levels in: 3,6 Weapons you should use: Handgun, R-F, Bombs, Shotgun Just run up to them and keep shooting until they fall or fly away (the Helicopters that fly away only take two or three round). You can stay back and shoot them but that takes some skill. The thing that I always do is to just keep running and shooting it (I do get hit but only once or twice). Don't do this unless you have full or almost full life. 2.4.1 Armored Helicopters Weapons: Handgun Levels in: 2,3,6 Weapons you should use: R-F, Bombs, Shotgun This is a regular Helicopter that takes a lot more damage. This causes a problem because if you run up to them you might die. The best way to beat them is to stay away and shoot them with the R-F or Shotgun while dodging it's bullets. This is pretty easy to do. When you shoot one down you will get some weapons/ammo and some other goodies. 2.5 Predators Weapon: Claws Level in: 7 Weapons you should use: Any weapon (except the Laser) Just shoot them with a couple rounds and they will disappear (these are not the mini-boss). Since they usually attack in groups you can drop a bomb into their path to kill them all. A way to get infinity points is to find a place where they come out of a wall and just shoot at it until you get all the points that you want (if you find one that constantly shoots them out for more points faster), and don't worry, if you stand back they won't be able to hit you. 2.6 Wall Cannons Weapon: Lasers Level: 7 Weapons you should use: You can't blow them up :( These are all over the Alien Ship (level 7). I don't know why they would be in the ship because the Predator's wouldn't need a security system for their space ship because no one would get on it (besides them). ************** 3.0 The Bosses ************** There is a Boss at the end of every level (except Level 1). The Bosses block off the end of the level and are very hard to kill. They will usually take a couple of lives to kill them (unless you know how to beat them). 3.1 Level 2 (the Helicopter) Weapon: Hangdun Primary weapon you should use: R-F Hostages around: two (on the botton right and the top left) When you run up the stairs to the Helicopter have your R-F weapon on and continue to fire at it until it blows (watch out for the Predator's cross hair). This is the easiest Boss in the game (If you can call it a Boss). If you don't kill it before you reach the top of the stairs then get the Hostages then turn and shoot it somemore. After it blows go to the Exit as fast as you can or else you blow away by the Predator. 3.2 Level 3 (The Semi) Weapon: Three people with Handguns Primary weapon you should use: Bombs Hostages around: Two (infront of the Semi) When you run up to the Semi pull out your Bombs and run from left to right them back while throwing Bombs at it. You must make all three of the guys with Handguns go back into the Semi before the Semi will blow. If you have enough Bombs and full life you should not die. If you run out of Bombs use R-F or any other powerful weapon. Another way to blow it up is to stay way back at the bottom and shoot, then run to the other side of the screen then shoot somemore. This is hard to do but it will work. 3.3 Level 4 (A Predator) Weapons: Lasers, Nets, Fireballs Primary weapon you should use: The Handgun Hostages around: No When you find him run to the right side while he shoots at you. When he stops, fire at him then run to the front when he starts to shoot at you. When he stops nail him agian. Repeat until he runs away then exit the level. If you do everything right you should not get hit. *Note* You can use the R-F weapon if you want but it uses up alot of ammo. 3.4 Level 5 (A Predator) Weapons: Lasers, Nets, Fireballs, Flying Blades Primary weapon you should use: The Handgun Hostages around: No As soon as you see him, go to the far left middle of the screen and just shoot at him. Most of his shots will miss and you will only have to dodge once or twice then return fire. You could run up to him (while dodging the Flying Blades) and shoot him with the Shotgun a coupe times, but this is not advised. 3.4.1 Mini-Boss 1 Run up and down while dodging his shots. When he is done with the round of shooting hit him with your favorite weapon. There is another way to make him run off; just go up to him and shoot him once with the Shotgun (you will get hurt doing this though). 3.4.2 Mini-Boss 2 Just use you Shotgun on him unless you want to dodge his shots and return fire. 3.4.3 Mini-Boss 3 Hide behind the wall (where the Predator can't shoot you) amd run down and shoot him with a weapon then go back up into your hiding place. If you do this right he won't hit you, or just shot him with the Shotgun again. The final way to kill him is to hide behind the wall and throw the Flying Blades at him (this wall is almost cheeting). 3.5 Level 6 (The Semi) Weapon: Three guys with Handguns Primary weapon you should use: Bombs Hostages around: Two (infront of the Semi) Do the same thing to this Semi as you did to the other one. There is no difference between them. 3.6 Level 7 (The Super Predator) Weapon: Every Predator type weapon Primary weapon you should use: Laser Hostages around: No Run up the the Boss and lure him out of his room. When he gets out into the hallway run over to *HIS* right side and shoot him with all the Lasers that you have. If you get into the perfect place he will not be able to hit you and he will die really fast. If you can't find that spot shoot him and when you almost die run all the way back to the start of that hallway to get the Body Armor then do back up and shoot at him somemore. ************** 4.0 The Levels ************** There are seven different levels in the game with x-number of Hostages in them that you have to save. You start out in the first Level (of cource) with you trusty Handgun. Note* I'm not going to tell you where all of the enemies are (except for the Bosses and Mini-Bosses). In some places the ammo will change (like in Level 5 when the Predator drops some weapons). Also in harder difficulty levels there isn't always lives and body armor (to make it harder). 4.1 Level 1 (The Streets) 9 Hostages When you start run up and rescue the Hostage besides you, then go up the street and take a left to get the Hostage. Grab the R-F gun and continue up the street and get the Hostage in the corner. Go down the street and get the R-F gun and a Hostage in another corner. From there go down and get another Hostage in another corner, then go down and turn to find the a car. After blowing it away to clear a path. Make sure to get some Bombs. Instead of going down into the newly cleared path go up to get the Hostage and so Body Armor. Now go down and rescue the Hostage from behind the lightpole. Go down the next street and get some ammo for the R-F gun and Bombs. At the end of the street go up and blow up the car (to get the Medkit). Then follow the top wall to get the Hostage. Finally exit the level by the door with the "exit" sign above it. Now on to Level 2. 4.2 level 2 (The Rooftops) 14 Hostages Go forward and get the Bombs from behind the windows. Then go forward and get the Hostages in both cornersof the left side of the building. Go down the stairs and shoot the Helicopter until it leaves. Then pick up the body armor and grab the Hostage in the top- left corner. Then go to the bottom-right corner by the blocked off stairs. Go past the blocked off stairs and you will see some more stairs by the top of the screen. Go up them and get some more ammo for the R-F gun. Then go to the top-right corner of the building to get the Hostage then go to the top-left for another. Go back down the stairs and go to the once-blockes-off-stairs then go to the left for some more body armor. Then go to the bottom-left corner(the second one) to get the Hostage. Go up the stairs and shoot the Helicopter by the purle stairs. After it flies away go down the path that it was blocking to get the Hostage and another body armor. Then go the blue stairs and get some ore R-F ammo. Then follow the roof until a Helicopter attacks. After it is gone, go down the blue stairs to get a Hostage and some more R-G ammo. Go back up the staurs and get the Hostage in the very bottom0right corner then the one in the top-right corner. Then go to the Blue stairs (not the stairs that you just came from) and then the purple stairs. At the top get the body armor. Then go forward and get the Hostage. Race up the stairs and grab the Hostage in the bottom-left corner, then pull out your R-F gun and run up the stairs and take ou the Helicopter. After that get the final Hostage ane exit the level through the purple doors befor the Predator blows you up. 4.3 Level 3 (The Streets) 10 Hostages When you start ou run forward to get the Shotgun. Continue to run in the same direction to get a medkit. Turn to the right until you hit the wall with a Hostage. Continue along the wall until you find two more Hostages. WARNING the Predator's cross hairs more very fast and will most likely kill one of the Hostages. Follow the walls until you find another Hostage . Do the same for the next Hostage. The next Hostage is in the road strait down from the last. Continue down the wall for another Hostage and a Medkit at the bottom. Retrace your tracks until you find an opening, go through it and to the right. After a little bit go down the alley for a medkit. Finally go up to fing the Boss. To find out how to beat the boss please read the Boss section. After the Semi blows, collect the goodies and go up-left to find the exit door. From here you go to the Subway. 4.4 Level 4 (The Subway) 6 Hostages This is a fast level so start by grabing the R-F ammo then go downand grab the Hostage behind the ticket booths. After going down some grab the Hostage between the booths (Dodge the Predators's shots while doing this). After going down even more get the body armor and another Hostage by the ticket booth. From here go to the right and grab the medkit between two more booths after a while. Then grab the Bombs between the chairs later on (acually just about three seconds latter). Then go to the right again to grab R-F ammo. Then go to the left and grab the Hostage behind the chairs. Then get another Hostage in front of three ticket booths. Go forward to fight the Boss.

Collect the goodies that he left behind and go forward to find the Predator agian. This time HE is the Boss, so please refer to Boss section.

After the Semi is gone for good, go up and blow up or chase the Helicopters away. Then exit through the door that was blocked by one of the Helicopters. 4.7 Level 7 (The Alien Ship) 25 Hostages One question is bothering me... why would the Predators have Hostages in their ship. Wouldn't they have just riped their heads off just like the others? Well, anyway start off by going up and take a right, go up at the wall, then left, then down. From here go to the right and get the Hostage. Then go to the left to get another Hostage. Finally go all the way back to the start (retrace your steps) and go to the right. Go up the hall to get the Hostage, then go to the left. Keep going left until you get another Hostage (past a huge hallway). Then go back to the huge hallway and go up it. Take a left and a wall will close behind you. Keep going left. When you reach another hallway going up, go down into a small room to get a Hostage. Then go up through the hallway. When you get reach the end of the hallway go left, then go up to get the Hostage. Retrace your steps and get back to the long hallway. Finish going up the hallway and go up-left to get the Hostage. Go uo the next hallway and go up-right. At the end of that hallway go left and all the way way up it to get some body armor and some ammo. Then go down and to the left to get the Hostage. Retrace your steps to where you can go left or right and this time go right. After following the hallway, go right for the Hostage, then go down. Then turn left at the first chance possible. Keep going left until you hit the wall, go down then left to get the Hostage. Go back to the hallway going down and go down it. Take a right to get a Hostage. Continue right and a wall will close behind you. Continue on then go down the next hallway. Turn left at the bottom to get a Hostage. Keep going to get another Hostage. Go up the hallway and to the right to get the Hostage. Go left until you enter the next room, from there go up and to the left to get the Hostage. Go all the way to the bottom, then the left, then to the right to get two Hostages (before "HE" gets them). Go back up and then into the room on the left. From there, go up and left to get the Hostage, then go down for another. Keep going down to get a Hostage (to the right). Continue down and got to the right (all the way). Once there grab the two Hostages. Go up then left fot another Hostage. Go down for another one. Then go to the top-left corner to find a Hostage, then search the bottom for another hostage. Then go to the Exit (the door on the left wall). From there go right(while walking you should pick up all the ammo that you can find, there is a lot). Then go all the way up to meet the Final Boss. ************************ 5.0 Ending and Passwords ************************ You run out of the space ship, then it shows you getting blown out of it (an nice picture). CONGRADULATIONS You've beaten the game!! For level 2-6 there are passwords to get back to that level (it doesn't matter what difficulty level you are set on). Level 2 KILLERS Level 3 CAMOUFLAGE Level 4 LOS ANGELES Level 5 SUBTERROR Level 6 TOTAL BODY Sorry, there isn't a password for Level 7 (that stinks), so you'll have to fight your way through Level 6 to get to it every time. There is one thing that I need to know about: what is on the title screen (I mean the blue rectangles)? If you know, please e-mail me. Thank you for reading this. This was made by Videogameman.
