Version 2.3
by "Gruel" Dale Kulas


Quick copy wright notice: This FAQ/Strategy Guide is ©copwright by Dale Kulas
2000, and can only be used on, no other site can use this strategy
guide at all, even if they e-mail me permission, this is a GameFAQs exclusive.

Also a quick note: All the goofed up spacing is gone, thank you Notepad! And go
to Hell Corel Word Perfect 8.0!

Revision History:

---Version 2.3--- October 4, 2000
Fixed all the line break errors that Word Perfect 8.0 cost, by redoing the FAQ
in note pad. Added Ascii art, fixed some mis info errors and other bugs. This

- - - Version 2.2 - - -July 13, 2000
Alright, I believe this is the final update. I finally got all the right
information in about unlocking stuff in the combat simulator about beating
challenges. Also a new Tip is added. Plus the unlock presets list is also
added. And in the expansion pak section of the FAQ I added a paragraph about
how crappy the gaming experience is when playing without the expansion pak. I
think all I got left is some awards I missed, if somebody notices any I don't
got please e-mail them to me.

- - - Version 2.1 - - -June 16, 2000
Added a couple more awards. I'm gonna be going out of town today to the state
of Michigan(upper peninsula) until July 10, so if you send any e-mail to me
during that time It'll either be a while for a reply(I might just have access
to a computer down there) or you won't get a reply at all. Thanks all.

- - - Version 2.0 - - -June 12, 2000
Believe I got the rest of the characters up. Your e-mails are in the credits
section. Thanks also to everyone who sent in confirmations too.

- - - Version 1.9 - - -June 9, 2000
Added some more characters in the character. Thanks again to the people who
sent me confirmations. Added a couple of new awards. A new tidbit about
unlocking characters and weapons for the combat simulator is also mentioned.
This guide is getting close near to completion, all I wanna do left is get the
list of all the awards in, and get the complete list of all the characters in
the game, and maybe add a couple of new F.A.Q.'s and tips.

- - - Version 1.8 - - -June 7, 2000
Sorry for a lack of updates, been rather busy lately. Any ways fixed a lot of
errors about how to unlock stuff in challenges, and made a lot of adjustments
to the characters list, and how to unlock the additional characters, also some
other minor changes and added people to the credits section who helped me all
out. Added another F.A.Q. Thanks again for everybody's co-operation with me for
the lack of updates.

---Version 1.7---June 1, 2000
Minor update. Got about 10 new awards up. A minor change to the comparison
chart, and 1 new FAQ added.

---Version 1.6---May 29, 2000
An important tidbit is added about unlocking stuff with the multi player
challenges, this was what I was getting e-mails about. And a couple more
comparisons in the GE/PD chart. 2 new tips, and 1 new F.A.Q. Plus a brand new
feature with the name of awards is started out.

---Version 1.5---May 28, 2000
Got a new Goldeneye/Perfect Dark comparison chart up. Also gave a list of all
the selectable characters in the game. Getting some e-mails about false info in
the guide. All I know is true, except for what's unlocked when you beat the
challenges, which I got from Nintendo Power, and I assumed it's true because NP
is published by Nintendo and since they're associated with Rare. Any ways if
you find some false info please e-mail me so I can fix it.

---Version 1.4---May 26, 2000
Got level info for all arenas in the combat simulator. And included the setups
for all of the preset games. This guide is getting pretty close to completion,
I'd say I'm about 2/3 of the way done. All I got left is character information,
a few more tips FAQs, and maybe a couple of other features I'm still thinking

---Version 1.3---May 25, 2000
Fixed the formatting bugs of the weapon list, and include descriptions of the
multi player challenges.

---Version 1.2---May 24, 2000
Added some info for a couple of areas in the game. Got a few more FAQs up, and
some tips for battle are also included. Also complete weapon lists are up also
for your convenience.

---Version 1.1---May 23, 2000
Just got the game, and played the multi mode nonstop for hours and got past the
first 6 challenges. Got a couple of new tips up, and expect more info to come
after June 1 after I get out of school and will have a lot more time to play
this game.

I. Introduction

	a: Welcome

	Hello, and welcome to my Combat Simulator guide for one of the most
anticipated games on the Nintendo 64, Perfect Dark. I hope to cover as much of
the Combat Simulator as possible. And I hope I please everybody as much as they
can so they can get the most out of their combat simulator.
	b: About sending me e-mail

	If you have any questions about the game, feel free to e-mail me at with "Perfect Dark" in the subject field, or else your
e-mail will most likely be considered as spam mail(which I get tons of every
day) and your e-mail address will be blocked from my inbox, and all incoming
messages I get from you will automatically get deleted. Also make sure the
e-mail has questions/information dealing with the combat simulator/multi player
challenges portion of Perfect Dark, and not the single player game part, or
else I will ignore your e-mail. Also make sure to check the FAQs and Tips
section in case your question you're about to ask is in that section.

	c: Expansion Pak info

	Now the expansion pak isn't required to play Perfect Dark, but it is required
to play the whole game. Without it you can only play the multi player
challenges, and only up to 2 people in the Combat Simulator, and 1 player with
up to 8 simulants at once. And if you see a pixelated block around people, it's
not because you're using a 3rd party expansion pak(which was rumored around)
it's because that person is wearing a shield.

	The multi player experience without the expansion pak isn't the greatest
either. Only 2 people can play, and you only get 2 little half screens for each
player(like the size of the squares for each player when playing with 3 or 4
players), plus all humans playing the game are Joanna Dark, and all sims you're
going against are Datadyne Shock Troopers(look like guys from the Quake games
to me).

III. Tips and Info for all the Levels

a: Complex(Updated version of the complex level from Goldeneye 007)
Level Info: An updated classic from Goldeneye 007. Looks the exact same, but
with some extra polishing off of the graphics. Try using the RockeLaunchers
weapon preset for this level, because it's my favorite for
this area.

b: Warehouse
Level Info: Mostly zigzagging halls, with a small open area outside the area,
that's perfect for ambushing because of you can climb up on top of the crates
or the perfect area to plant Laptop Guns

c: Ravine
Level Info: Man, this is the arena I hate the most, because there's a lot of
narrow pathways without rails, and if you fall off the path, you'll most likely
fall to your death in a seemingly endless abyss. Experts Only.

d: Temple(Updated version of the temple level from Goldeneye 007)
Level Info: Another great updated classic from Goldeneye 007. If you're
battling with simulants, their favorite spot to battle is on the main
part of the top floor with the whole in the middle, great for ambushing
people below.

e: G5 Building
Level Info: Really small level with only a few small rooms and halls. Even with
only 4 players, this level can seem crowded.

f: Grid
Level Info: Some parts of this level seem like a big messed up maze with a big
space in the middle of it, but there's also an elevator in this level which I
advise not to use since simulants wait right by it once you get off, for an
easy ambush.

g: Felicity(Updated version of the Facility level from Goldeneye 007)
Level Info: Another classic from Goldeneye, where the bathroom in this level is
favorite place to get all the kills. This arena is very small, and if you have
the game with more than 4 players, expect frequent deaths.

h: Villa
Level Info: Finally a level that's not hard to get lost in the halls. Fairly
simple arena that has a big open area in the middle.

i: Sewers
Level Info: Narrow, zigzagging halls is what mostly make up this arena. This
brings back memories of the Basement level of Goldenye.

j: Base
Level Info: Pretty basic simple arena on the bottom, but there's plenty of
bridges above to make perfect spots for ambushing and laptop security guns.

k: Fortress
Level Info: Remember the Block Fort battle stage from Mario Kart 64? Well, this
is somewhat like it, with a big open area in the middle, and 4 square shaped
rooms in the corners, and like in the Block Fort, you can easily ambush from

l: Ruins
Level Info: I usually get lost every time I play this level because a lot of
the arena is dark paths, which make it hard to see.

m: Skedar Arena
Level Info: Probably the most popular arena in the game is this one. There's
lots of floors, with easy-to-not get lost hallways, and big vast open areas,
perfect for having all-out shootouts!

n: Area 52
Level Info: There's a lot of narrow halls in this level, but the 2 areas where
just about everybody's at is this little room with a door, and a main big room
with towers from 4 corners, try putting Laptop Guns as a security gun on one of
these towers to ambush un expecting simulants.

o: Pipes
Level Info: The name of the arena practically describes it, it's pipes in the
middle of the stage connecting all the rooms of the arena, but if you fall off
the pipes, you end your life by falling into an abyss. The middle is a great
part to put mines and laptop security guns.

p: Car Park
Level Info: Basically your fighting in a not-so-greatly lit up car garage,
perfect for fitting a lot of participants in it, or else you'll get long,
boring battles with only a few players.


IV. The Characters
Here's a list of most of the characters in the game. These aren't the default
list of people you start off with, you get more as you beat the challenges,(and
solo missions too, I heard) but I wasn't keeping track of the characters I was
unlocking after beating the challenges. Also you can mix and match faces with
costumes by pressing up on the control stick to access the faces, and then by
pressing left or right from a wide variety of faces. Most of the characters
below are unlocked after running into these characters in the solo or
co-operative missions.

1: Joanna Dark(Combat Suit)

V. The Simulants

a: How to use the simulants

In this part of the guide I'll be explaining to you how to use the simulatnts,
or sims for short. These sims are really cool because you can use them in a
variety of ways:

-To team up with or against other people in multi player mode or counter-op
-To team up with in co-operative missions and multi player missions
-To go against up to 8 on your own or team up with some against the rest(like
4v4, 5v3, 6v2, etc.)
Now if you select a sim to be your partner, you'll have to assign him
objectives to do. In order to do that, during game play you hold down the A
button, then press the Z trigger twice to get the command menu to appear. If
you have more than 1 sim on your team, then just press the Z trigger again in
order to move onto the command screen for the next sim on your team. Now here's
a list and descriptions of what all the commands do:
Attack - When you select this option you'll get a list of all your opponents
and you pick one from the list for your sim to attack. Once you pick the
person, your sim will run off to gun it down.

Follow - Pick this option and the sim will follow right behind you, and in case
you get attacked, your sim will start firing at the person who's attacking you.

Protect - When you assign this option to your sim, he'll be following you side
by side, making sure the path is clear for you, and is always taking all the
shots for you too.

Defend - Use this option to have your sim to stop where he is and defend the
area where he's at, this is very useful if you're playing in the Capture the
Case scenario.

Hold - Kind of like the defend command, but instead if your sim is just moving
around, the hold command makes him come to a stop, and he'll sit there until
you give him another command, or he gets attacked.

Other exclusive commands - In some scenarios you play on, some special commands
appear, like in Capture the Case, the command "Get Case" pops up, and in King
of the Hill mode, the commands "Hold Hill" and "Defend Hill" pop up

Now here's a description about all the sims in the game:

b: Meat Sim
This is the crappiest sim in the game. He can't find anybody if you assign him
to and if he does run into an opponent he can't even come close to locking onto
the target since most of his shots miss.

c: Easy Sim
This sim is still crappy, but not as crappy as the Meat Sim because it has
slightly better accuracy than it and rarely he dodges bullets.

d: Normal Sim
The average sim, has an average accuracy, and about half the time, he dodges

e: Hard Sim(unlocked after beating 4 challenges)
This sim is where it starts to get tough, he gets the best weapons, has good
accuracy, and uses the radar to find you.

f: Perfect Sim(unlocked after beating 9 challenges)
Just like the hard sim, but has way better accuracy, dodges more bullets, moves
fast and uses the radar.

g: Dark Sim(unlocked after beating 21 challenges)
The hardest sim in the game. Has near perfect accuracy, and moves extremely
fast and is very smart.


h: Peace Sim
This sim hates war, and to make sure to reduce, he goes around and try to get
all the weapons so nobody else can use them.

i: Shield Sim
This sim is one who doesn't want to die, if he gets hit he'll automatically run
to find a shield(equivalent of the body armor of Goldeneye 007).

j: Rocket Sim
This sim never bothers to get the regular guns, but goes for the specialty
weapon of the round, like Rocket Launchers or Grenades, and that's what he only

k: Kazi Sim
If this sim spots you it'll continue to chase you until you gun him down, no
matter what the odds are, consider it to be a "kamikaze."

l: Fist Sim
This sim only collects weapons, and never uses any of them except for his hand.
He may even attempt to steal a weapon from you.

m: Predator Sim
This sim always runs after you if you're unarmed or low on life, so don't be
surprised if you see him after you after you come back into the game right
after you lose a life.

n: Coward Sim
Smell what I smell? Smells like pussy! And it's coming in this direction
because the Coward Sim will run from all meetings with its opponents unless it
is better armed.

o: Justice Sim
This sim only attacks the person who's winning the round, I wonder if he'll
ever commit suicide if he's the one who's winning.

p: Vendetta Sim
This sim is a little confusing. He picks one guy out of all the rest, and he
attacks the person until he kills the person he's stalking.

q: Cheetah Sim
This is the fastest sim in the game, so it'll be pretty hard to kill unless you
fire an explosive at it.

r: Turtle Sim
The opposite of the Cheetah sim, this sim is as slow as, well, a turtle, but it
carries a heavy shield, so while it may be slow, it'll take a while to finish
it off.

s: Revenge Sim
The second you touch this sim, it's only focus will be to gun down you, it'll
avoid the rest of the competitors until it makes sure you're dead.

VI. Multi Player Challenges

Another note, a lot of this stuff can be unlocked by just playing in this
arena, picking up the weapons, playing against a certain sim by playing with
it/against it in the challenges and solor/co-op missions, and not just by
beating the given number of challenges.

VIII. The Scenarios

a: Combat
This is your basic scenario that's ready from the start of the game, it's just
like Goldeneye 007's multi player mode where you set the level, specialty
weapon, time limit based on points or time, and choose your characters, plus
you can also choose weather or not you want simulants.

b: King of the Hill
This is the only other scenario ready from the beginning of the game. When you
reach the designated area of the level which is the "hill" the border will
flash green around it, stay in there for 18 seconds and earn a point.

c: Hold the Briefcase(unlocked by beating 2 challenges)
This is sort of like Flag Tag in Goldeneye, except you substitute the flag with
a briefcase, you run around with the briefcase for as long as you can and for
every 30 seconds you get a point, whoever holds it the longest before the set
time expired, or point limit is reached, is the winner.

d: Capture the Case(unlocked by beating 4 challenges)
Capture the Case is just like other multi player games' Capture the Flag mode,
but instead of bringing back a flag to your base, you bring back a briefcase.

e: Hacker Central(unlocked by beating 6 challenges)
In this scenario a data uplink is hidden somewhere in the level and once you
get it you must attach it to a terminal to download information, if the player
who's carrying the uplink is shot down, the uplink will return to where it came

f: Pop a Cap(unlocked by beating 12 challenges)
This is kind of like "Frag Tag" in other 1st person shooters, where players
take turn being the "victim" where you are ‘it' and try to run for your life,
if you survive for 1 minute you get a point, and the person who shoots the
"victim" gets 2 points. You can also shoot others gunning after you, I didn't
have that tidbit in an earlier update, but I do know after a couple of
e-mails,(go to last section for credits)


IX. Tips

a: Crouching/Ducking
Crouching is useful to duck shots and squeeze into those hard to fit
hidden areas. To duck, hold the R button, then hold the bottom C button,
the more you hold down the bottom C button, the more you duck.

b: Stealing weapons from opponents
Yes, even your hand punch has a 2nd feature to it, hold the B button
until you get a message that says "Disarm" when it appears, keep on
pressing the Z trigger next to an opponent with a gun, with correct
timing, you'll steal there weapon from them!

c: Use the 2nd features
All guns have 2nd features, by holding the B button, you'll get a new
message for a new method of using your current weapon. About most of
the basic guns only use a hand swipe, which is basically a hand punch
with a weapon in your hand, but others, such as the Super Dragon, have
powerful 2nd features like a Grenade Launcher, and the Shotgun has a
a double fire to just name a few.

d: Never ambush when an opponent of yours is a simulant
If you have an opponent as a simulant, never hide out for ambushing, they
usually, always, end up finding you. Believe me this has happened to me on a
number of occasions, where I think I'm in the best spot for easy kills, then a
sim sneaks up behind me and guns me down.

e: Use the Radar
If you ever get lost in a map and don't know where an opponent of yours is, the
radar is the best way to handle the situation. The radar is the exact same one
used in Goldeneye, so you shouldn't have a problem finding your foes. Of
course, this tip is useless if you have No Radars selected under options.

f: Sidestep
In the midst of high heat battles against both humans and simulants I find it
easy to avoid shot by side stepping with the C buttons and hold the control
stick to the left or right, causing me to run in a circular direction, while
I'm running I'll shoot at my opponent, and if they're still standing twirling
in circles to follow me, It'll be easier for me to shoot them rather for them
to shoot me

round at on the end game info screen if there's a star on your main box.)

XI. Frequently Asked Questions(FAQs)

#1   	 Q: How do I unlock extra simulants, levels, weapons, and scenarios?

      	A: Beat the multi player challenges

#2	Q: What do the first 4 and last 4 multi player challenges unlock?

	A: Nothing

#3	Q: How come only up to 2 people, and not 4, can play in the Combat
	Simulator in my version of Perfect Dark?	

	A: Because you don't got the Expansion Pak installed in your N64, which
	is required to have 3-4 people play in the Combat Simulator.

#4	Q: I thought there can be up to 8 simulants playing with/against me, how
	come there's only 4?

	A: You start the game off with four, but by beating some challenges
	you'll be able to play with up to 8 simulants.

#5	Q: What's that little polygon box of pixels around my fighter when I zoom in
on them or 	they get hit?

	A: If your partner/opponent has a shield and if they get hit, the
	polygonal block will appear around them indicating they have a shield
	on. Some argue and say this is a glitch in the game if you're using an
	3rd Party expansion pak, but that was just a rumor when the game first
	came out and not a glitch.

#6	Q: What do those 4 stars under each challenge number off the challenge
	selection screen mean?

	A: The 1st star means you beat the challenge by yourself, the 2nd star
	means you beat the challenge with 2 players, the 3rd star means you beat
	the challenge with 3 players, and the 4th star means you beat the
	challenge with 4 players.

#7:	Q: How do I improve my rank?

	A: Whenever you create a character profile you'll start off at rank
	21, which is amateur(or trainee), then as you win more challenges, improve
your accuracy, 	get more kills and head shots you'll move up the ranks. It's
kind of like an experience 	points system in an RPG.

#8:	Q: How do I get the ‘License to Kill' mode scenario from Goldeneye 007?

	A: There isn't a scenario, but in the options in the Advanced Setup
	menu, there's an option for one-hit kills, on or off, which is
	basically the same thing, plus some challenges have one-hit kills
	for a preset option.

#9:	Q: What does that "Smart" option under the slow motion choice mean?

	A: Alright, your in a game, which will move at a normal speed, but whenever
you come
	close to an allie or foe, the game will get slower as you move towards them,
the slower
	it gets, it means the closer they are to you.
