        ---- 1. Introduction ----                                            [1000]
    I bet not too many of you have ever heard of the game producers, 7th Level let
    alone, probably there best contribution, G-Nome. Apparently, this particular
    company never really became known or popular.
    G-Nome is a mech-based shooter taking place in a world of conflict. The humans
    (Union) has discovered that one of their immediate enemies known as the Scorp
    is producing a creature based off the human G-Nome. These creatures are 
    supposedly extremely dangerous and predicted to be used offensively against
    the humans. You of course, are the only one who can put a stop to this.
    This is a Vehicles FAQ in which I will describe the various vehicles as well
    as providing various strategies for them. Since none of the other FAQs have
    that much in-depth information on these HAWCs. I do hope you find this guide
        ---- 2. FAQ ----                                                     [2000]
          [Q] What exactly does HAWC stand for?
          [A] A simple question. Luckily, I have it memorized. Heavy-Armor-Weapon-
              Chassis which fits it perfectly. 
          [Q] Is there anyone on network play anymore? 
          [A] Apparently not. I checked out the listings and there really wasn't
              too much going on in network play. I suppose it was a little lively
              when G-Nome did first come out but it seems to have lost a bit of
              its luster.
          [Q] How many levels are there?
          [A] There are 24 levels in all. Each one is very detailed though so don't
              worry about shortness.
          [Q] I can't get past level [insert level name here]!
          [A] I suggest checking out the other walkthroughs. I've read through them
              and they seem fine.
          [Q] Do you have any cheat codes?
          [A] Keep in mind that this is NOT a cheat guide. If you're looking for
              codes, why don't you check out the GameFAQs cheats section? Why do
              you think it's there if no one is going to use it.
        ---- 3. HAWC List ----                                               [3000]
    Well, here we are. The actual content of this guide. I have split up the 
    various races for easier reference. 
    Before I continue however, I would like to make something clear before anyone 
    starts emailing me. The weaponry listed for the HAWCs is the standard set. 
    Obviously, in campaign, you might have different sets. 
             3.1. The Darken                                                 [3100]
    The Darken are a primitive group of rather dwarven people. They have a low 
    number of different HAWCs and they aren't terribly effective.
    Darken Sentry HAWC ~
              Class: Bipedal Anti-Personnel 
              Nickname: Talon
              Max Speed: 75 kph
              Shield Strength: 60
              Energy Reservoir: 1000
              Height: 6.3 m.
              Weight: 18 tons    
                        2 Swivel/Pitch CHUM missile racks (50 count)
                        2 Swivel/Pitch RUPP lasers 
              The Darken Sentry HAWC isn't the fastest, most heavily armed, or
              greatest HAWC I've ever played with but it does well. Armed with 
              two RUPP laser cannons and two heavy CHUM rocket pods, the Darken
              Sentry HAWC can be pretty terrifying. It's not terribly fast either.
              But I do have to admit, the "Talon" does look pretty sweet from the
              Really, my only strategy would be keep moving. You also should take
              advantage of the swiveling torso when making your passes. Fire 
              lasers first to bring down shields and take them down with a 
              combination of the rocket pods as well as the lasers. When your
              energy is low, avoid firing the lasers too rapidly or else you'll
              lose it which you need for your shields. 
              You can always try to run away. Many HAWCs can't catch up to the 
              Sentry HAWC but try not to especially when you're facing something
              like an Airborne Insurgance Platform.
    Darken Tactical Defense HAWC ~
              Class: Bipedal Anti-Personnel 
              Nickname: Stalker
              Max Speed: 67.5 kph
              Shield Strength: 50
              Energy Reservoir: 1500
              Height: 7.9 m.
              Weight: 23 tons
                        2 Swivel/Pitch HOMP11 lasers 
                        2 Swivel/Pitch DASY guns (200 count)
              Despite the fact that Darken Tactical Defense HAWC looks SWEET, it
              isn't that great of a HAWC. It has low shields and isn't terribly
              fast either. However, it can recharge its shields fairly quickly 
              with its large energy generator but believe me, it still won't get 
              too far.
              The "Stalker" is armed with two laser cannons and two anti-personnel
              machine gun. When these two arnaments are used correctly, you can 
              take down an enemy HAWC much more efficiently. Both are fairly 
              powerful. Use the HOMP11 long-range laser to take down enemy shields
              quickly and then switch to the DASY rounds to shred away at the  
              opponent. With no shields to deflect the rounds, the HAWC will fall
              to its feet.
    Darken Airborne Insurgance Platform ~
              Class: Hovercraft  
              Nickname: Vulture
              Max Speed: 95 kph
              Shield Strength: 25
              Energy Reservoir: 1600
              Height: 2.9 m.
              Weight: 3.4 tons
                        1 Swivel/Pitch WART pulse laser
                        1 Swivel/Pitch DASY gun
              The Darken Airborne Insurgance Platform is a strange looking 
              hovercraft indeed. In fact, I can barely tell the front from the 
              back. It has weak shield strength but its energy resevoir easily
              makes up for that. Darken's fastest vehicle no doubt.
              When you're riding a hovercraft HAWC, the only way you can survive is
              if you keep moving. The turret can rotate all the way around 360 so 
              you should be able to get a shot while avoiding your opponents fire.
              If you really suck at hitting your foe even with the swivel turret,
              press the "W" key to activate auto-tracking which does the aiming for
              you. Just remember you can not get hit rapidly unless you have a 
              death wish. 
    Darken Armored Support Vehicle ~
              Class: Treaded Assault
              Nickname: Boulder
              Max Speed: 68 kph
              Shield Strength: 35
              Energy Reservoir: 1300
              Height: 3.8 m.
              Weight: 6.2 tons
                        1 Swivel/Pitch CHUM missile launcher (30 count)
                        1 Swivel/Pitch DASY gun (400 count)
              Pretty awesome looking tank here. It for some reason, itreminds me of 
              a Sphinx. Anyway, the Darken Armored Support Vehicle doesn't have 
              very good shields which is kind of strange considering the fact
              that it is a tank. It's energy generator is pretty effective though
              and can recharge its shields quickly anyway. 
              Like the hovercraft, the "Boulder" also has a full 360 degree turret
              which gives you a perfect view of the war-zone. The combination of
              CHUM rockets and the common DASY anti-personnel gun allows you to be
              able to cover both infantry and other HAWCs. I would suggest using 
              the same strategy as the "Vulture" which is basically moving around
              constantly and firing upon your opponent by moving your turret to  
             3.2. The Union                                                  [3200]
    The Union are simply the humans of this game. Of course, they are a bit more 
    technological than the other races. Their HAWCs have variety with some being
    slow but extremely powerful and others fast but weak.
    Union Sentry HAWC ~
              Class: Bipedal Anti-Personnel 
              Nickname: Prowler
              Max Speed: 70 kph
              Shield Strength: 35
              Energy Reservoir: 1600
              Height: 6.8 m.
              Weight: 19 tons
                        2 Swivel/Pitch FLECH guns (200 count) 
                        2 Swivel/Pitch FIL30 lasers
              This strange HAWC doesn't have a torso but its cockpit hangs from 
              its legs giving it an "M" pattern. Nevertheless, the Union Sentry
              HAWC is a nice alternative from the other HAWCs. Its fast, and has
              a good energy reservoir.
              Since the cockpit is hanging from the legs, how do you think the 
              cockpit and twist with no torso? That might be a bit tough but the
              Union Sentry HAWC is so versatile, you might not even need to. Just
              run around and you should have the immediate advantage. Again, the 
              weapon combination should be the laser cannons first and then the
              Flechette Gun.
    Union Tactical Defense HAWC ~
              Class: Bipedal Anti-Armor Defense 
              Nickname: Rampage
              Max Speed: 60 kph
              Shield Strength: 36
              Energy Reservoir: 1200
              Height: 7.5 m.
              Weight: 24.1 tons
                        2 Swivel/Pitch P2MEC laser cannons
                        2 Swivel/Pitch TCREAP guns (150 count)
                        1 TCROCK rocket rack (10 count)
                        1 SAG5T rocket rack (26 count)
              The "Rampage" has a wide variety of weapons which you can choose for
              the situation. The P2MEC plasma cannon is a powerful shield killer 
              but its rate of fire is slow especially if you're moving fast. 
              The TCREAP works more like a anti-infantry weapon but it is effective
              against HAWCs whose shields have already taken a beating. Now, there
              are two different rockets racks. The latter (SAG5T) is a guided 
              missile which follows the target if you fire it close to it. The 
              other (TCROCK), simply melts armor. I swear, it is powerful. 
              Although it wasn't made for this, you can still use the "run around
              the target" strategy. The Union Tactical Defense HAWC has enough 
              speed for it to be effective. Due to the Union Tactical Defense 
              HAWC's swiveling torso, it makes for a great strafer when you need 
              it. If you don't feel like doing that, you can just attack head-on 
              ONLY if you have one or two foes to destroy. Also, keep your eye on 
              your TCROCK count. Don't waste them as you might need them later on.
    Union Heavy Assault HAWC ~
              Class: Multipedial Assault 
              Nickname: Lion
              Max Speed: 90 kph
              Shield Strength: 90
              Energy Reservoir: 2200
              Height: 14.7 m.
              Weight: 57 tons
                        2 Swivel/Pitch P2MEC laser cannons
                        2 Swivel/Pitch TCREAP guns (1500 count)
                        1 Swivel/Pitch TCROCK rocket rack (50 count)
                        1 Swivel/Pitch VISOM missile rack (30 count) 
              The Union Heavy Assault HAWC is similar to the Union Tactical Defense
              HAWC in weaponry but with its armor and energy generator, they simply
              cannot be compared. With its armor, shield, strength, and firepower,
              the "Lion" HAWC can easily fight a small war on its own. 
              There's really no need to try to use any evasive maneuvers. After 
              all, a HAWC of this size won't get too far trying to do those. The
              best approach would be to stand around in one area and shoot at every
              opponent that comes at you. However, even with the Union Heavy 
              Assault HAWC's incredible shield and armor, you have to watch out for
              damage. The "Lion's" arnaments are very powerful. The VISOM missile 
              is not something you'd see everyday however. You have the ability to
              guide it with the arrow keys which helps in destroying faraway 
              targets. Watch your count though, don't waste them all!
    Union Airborne Insurgance Platform ~
              Class: Hovercraft
              Nickname: Rapier
              Max Speed: 100 kph
              Shield Strength: 20
              Energy Reservoir: 1900
              Height: 2.7 m.
              Weight: 3 tons
                        1 Swivel/Pitch ARCM laser cannon
                        1 Swivel/Pitch TCREAP gun (220 count)
              The Union Airborne Insurgance Platform is not much different than the
              other hovercrafts. It's fast, quick, and makes a great scout. It's
              arnaments are fairly weak but the key is speed.
              When you're being challenged, you can take the "run around enemy" 
              strategy which works for the "Rapier" due to it's 360 degree rotating
              turret. However, when up against a lot of opposition, it might be 
              best to run and find a more suitable HAWC for the battle. After all,
              you can outrun almost anything. 
    Union Armored Support Vehicle ~
              Class: Treaded Assault
              Nickname: Titan
              Max Speed: 72 kph
              Shield Strength: 30
              Energy Reservoir: 800
              Height: 3.1 m.
              Weight: 7 tons
                        1 Swivel/Pitch TCROCK rocket launcher
                        2 Swivel/Pitch TCREAP guns (800 count) 
              The Union Armored Support Vehicle doesn't look that high-tech (it 
              looks like a friggin' 1941 Sherman tank) but that apparently doesn't
              make that great of a difference. Shields and energy reservoir are 
              fairly low but the armor is what counts. The "Titan" can take a nice
              beating before it goes down.
              However, even with it's durable hull, you'll have to watch your 
              shield and energy meter. You never know when you will need it. Since
              the Union Armored Support Vehicle has a good base speed, you have a 
              good advantage in battle. Not only can you avoid enemy fire MUCH 
              more easily, but you can run away when you you must. The "Titan" can
              beat many others speed-wise but be sure you CAN outrun the enemy. 
              Some HAWCs are still faster than 72 kph. 
             3.3. The Merc                                                   [3300]
    The Bendian Mercenaries are a group of outcasts who have come together and 
    formed a fairly large civilization. There HAWCs are armed very well and they
    do hold responsible for developing some extremely powerful weapons. 
    The Merc HAWCs use stolen weapons. The majority of them are fast and they do 
    hold very powerful weapons. However, every one of their HAWCs does NOT hold
    an auto-ejection capability which can be life threatening at times. 
    Merc Sentry HAWC ~
              Class: Bipedal Anti-Personnel
              Nickname: Ogre
              Max Speed: 85 kph
              Shield Strength: 22
              Energy Reservoir: 1100
              Height: 6.9 m.
              Weight: 17.9 tons
                        2 Swivel/Pitch RAID laser cannons
                        1 Swivel/Pitch CHUM rocket launcher (25 count)
              I just love the shade of blue on this HAWC. It gives it that 
              "mercenary" look don't you think? Anyway, the Merc Sentry HAWC sure
              looks fairly intimidating but in fact, it isn't that great of a 
              For starters, The "Ogre" doesn't have a very good weapon scheme. 
              It doesn't hold any form of machine guns or other projectile weapon
              that uses the brass. That disability automatically gives the Merc
              Sentry HAWC a lot lower effectiveness rating against other infantry.
              The CHUM rockets would take care of them but you only have a limited
              number. Luckily, you won't be forced to use this HAWC that much in 
              the campaign.
    Merc Tactical Defense HAWC ~
              Class: Bipedal Anti-Personnel
              Nickname: Minotaur
              Max Speed: 72 kph
              Shield Strength: 50
              Energy Reservoir: 1700
              Height: 9.5 m.
              Weight: 26 tons
                        1 Swivel/Pitch RAID laser cannon
                        2 Swivel/Pitch DASY guns (300 count)
                        2 Swivel/Pitch SAG5T missile racks (40 count)
              This HAWC sure looks badass! The Merc Tactical Defense HAWC is a 
              weapon on all four (or in this case, two) being effective against 
              infantry, other HAWCs, and buildings.
              The "Minotaur" doesn't have a swiveling turret or cockpit which kind
              of limits your ability to fight. However, if you use strategy while
              fighting, you'll still usually do well. First of all, you shouldn't
              stay near your enemy. When you find a suitable opponent, charge 
              towards them with your single RAID laser ablaze. Just before you 
              crash into your foe, immediately start backing up and rapidly fire
              away with guns and missiles. Usually, you can kill an enemy with two
              or three of these. 
    Merc Cruiser HAWC ~
              Class: Multipedal Cruiser
              Nickname: WidowMaker
              Max Speed: 45 kph
              Shield Strength: 40
              Energy Reservoir: 1000
              Height: 12.4 m.
              Weight: 22.3 tons
                        2 Swivel/Pitch FLECH guns (150 count)
                        1 Swivel/Pitch GAUS20 laser cannon
              This strangely framed HAWC is the only HAWC which holds the GAUS20
              cannon which is basically a slightly weaker knockoff of the weapon
              that every Meson Guard Tower holds. It's a devastating laser blast
              which takes down shields and rips away at armor rapidly. Obviously, 
              you'd want to grab hold of the Merc Cruiser HAWC whenever you 
              possibly can. 
              Because of its many legs, the "WidowMaker" obviously can't travel
              too fast. And when it does walk, the cockpit shakes quite a bit. 
              This is especially annoying when trying to twist or turn the HAWC the
              other way to avoid weaponry fire or something similar. The laser
              cannon is a powerful shield-killer but it should be used in 
              conjunction with the flechette gun to rip apart at both shield and 
              Also, you should DEFINITELY not try to run from battle with the 
              Merc Cruiser HAWC. The enemy will usually be able to catch up with
              you and then you'll probably be dead meat. It's just common sense.
    Merc Heavy Assault HAWC ~
              Class: Multipedal Assault
              Nickname: Venom
              Max Speed: 31.5 kph
              Shield Strength: 70
              Energy Reservoir: 1800
              Height: 7.9 m.
              Weight: 27.3 tons
                        2 Swivel/Pitch RUPP laser cannons
                        2 Swivel/Pitch zWASP guns (500 count)
                        1 PUG missile rack (20 count)
                        1 VISOM missile rack (10 count)
              The Merc Heavy Assault HAWC resembles a spider in my opinion. Well,
              maybe that's where its nickname came from. Anyway, this is a good
              overall HAWC with no real weaknesses except for its speed which is 
              pretty horrendous.
              Although the "Venom" is terribly slow, it makes up for that with its
              armor as well as its shields which is probably one of the highest
              points overall. Yep, the Merc Heavy Assault HAWC can take a great 
              load of punishment. It's even fitted with a VISOM missile rack 
              (stolen from the Union of course) which you can guide. RUPP laser
              cannons plus the Scorp zWASP machine guns make a great combo. 
    Merc Airborne Insurgance Platform ~
              Class: Hovercraft
              Nickname: Razor
              Max Speed: 103.5 kph
              Shield Strength: 18
              Energy Reservoir: 1400
              Height: 3.7 m.
              Weight: 4.3 tons
                        1 Swivel/Pitch TAR12 laser cannon
                        1 Swivel/Pitch TCREAP gun (100 count)
                        1 Swivel/Pitch DASY gun (110 count) 
              The Merc version of the Airborne Insurgance Platform (hovercraft) is
              undoubtably the single fastest HAWC there is putting all the other
              hovercrafts to shame. Also, it's the most heavily armed of the 
              hovercrafts. The Merc Airborne Insurgance Platform is the 
              "definitive" hovercraft no doubt.
              I've given this strategy before and I'll post it here yet again. 
              When using this HAWC, simply defeat your enemies by flying around 
              them in circles while rotating your turret to target them as you 
              avoid their weapon fire. Because the "Razor" is that much more 
              armed than other hovercrafts, you'll find your blood feud much 
    Merc Armored Support Vehicle ~
              Class: Treaded Assault
              Nickname: Legionnaire
              Max Speed: 90 kph
              Shield Strength: 25
              Energy Reservoir: 1200
              Height: 4.1 m.
              Weight: 12 tons
                        1 Swivel/Pitch CHUM missile launcher (40 count)
                        1 Swivel/Pitch FLECH gun (500 count)
              This HAWC seems to have a rather close resemblence to the Merc 
              Airborne Insurgance Platform. I have even mistaken the two at one 
              point... well make that two. ;)
              Anyway, here's your standard tank. Well, it is good in armor, and 
              overall weaponry but it's also one of the fastest tanks as well. 
              To beat enemies, simply ride around them and twist your turret to 
              fire. It might seem silly but it's effective and annoys your opponent
              (considering they're carbon-based) greatly. Well, at least it's the
              strategy that the AI uses so I'm happy with that. :)
             3.4. The Scorp                                                  [3400]
    The Scorp are one of the more powerful organizations around. They are rather
    aggressive foes who won't hesitate to die for their cause. Apparently, they
    are the ones to hold responsible for the development of the G-Nome. 
    Scorp Sentry HAWC ~
              Class: Bipedal Anti-Personnel
              Nickname: Jinx
              Max Speed: 56.25 kph
              Shield Strength: 42
              Energy Reservoir: 800
              Height: 6.3 m.
              Weight: 17.2 tons
                        2 Pitch CETI laser cannons
                        2 Pitch zWASP guns (200 count)
                        1 SREM missile rack (20 count)
              Now this HAWC looks just plain awesome. The Scorp Sentry HAWC is 
              mediocre in almost every category. Medium speed, medium shield, 
              medium weaponry power, etc. Still, it's a good all around HAWC.
              There's no swiveling turret or anything of the like on the "Jinx,"
              I hate to disappoint you. I don't have much for strategy. I guess
              the best you can do is charge and then back up immediately guns 
              ablaze. Watch your shields though.
    Scorp Tactical Defense HAWC ~
              Class: Bipedal Anti-Personnel
              Nickname: Predator
              Max Speed: 54 kph
              Shield Strength: 48
              Energy Reservoir: 1700
              Height: 8.9 m.
              Weight: 20.7 tons
                        2 Pitch RAID laser cannons
                        2 Pitch zWASP guns (500 count)
                        1 HSSO missile launcher (15 count)
              Man, this is one ugly HAWC. Then again, it's pretty effective in 
              battle so I guess you can make that information irrelevant. 
              One thing I like about the Scorp Tactical Defense HAWC is its ability
              to take on a variety of purposes or jobs. It can be used as a direct
              assault HAWC, anti-infantry HAWC, or even cannon fodder. Anyway, the
              "Predator" doesn't have a swiveling turret which limits your 
              advantage in battle. However, when faced without a swiveling weapon,
              you can always use the charge strategy. It's always effective for me.
    Scorp Heavy Assault HAWC ~
              Class: Multipedal Cruiser
              Nickname: Scorpion
              Max Speed: 30 kph
              Shield Strength: 72
              Energy Reservoir: 1900
              Height: 8.6 m.
              Weight: 36.4 tons
                        2 Swivel/Pitch zWASP guns (1000 count)
                        2 Swivel/Pitch LRIP laser cannons
                        1 HSSO missile rack (10 count)
                        1 SREM missile rack (30 count)
                        1 VISOM rocket launcher (20 count)
    Ah, you notice there are three different rockets. If you understand G-Nome, you
    should be aware of the fact that each HAWC can only carry four DIFFERENT 
    weapons. Well, I don't know the full explanation but the missiles you are 
    armed with is simply randomized (in network play at least). Don't ask me why, 
    I'm just describing it for you.
    The Scorp Heavy Assault HAWC is slow, no question. I guess it must be all those
    legs. I still don't see the point of more than two legs, what's wrong with 
    having two legs, or even wheels. It sure will make you run a lot faster. 
    Anyway, the "Scorpion" does have a slightly swiveling turret but it doesn't go
    around that far so you might do better with a direct assault. When you have
    the VISOM rockets, you'll automatically have an advantage over the same HAWC
    without the VISOM rockets so consider yourself lucky if you pick one up 
    carrying them. 
    Scorp Airborne Insurgance Platform ~
              Class: Hovercraft 
              Nickname: Wasp
              Max Speed: 90 kph
              Shield Strength: 24
              Energy Reservoir: 1500
              Height: 3.7 m.
              Weight: 4.1 tons
                        1 Swivel/Pitch TAR12 laser cannon
                        1 Swivel/Pitch zWASP gun (200 count)
              I don't know why I'm bringing this up but I just have to say, the 
              Scorp have terrible aesthetic taste. This is the ugliest of all the
              HAWCs. I'm not kidding.
              The TAR12 laser cannon isn't that effective of a laser. Others are
              much more effective but it will do in your HAWC killing. Overall, I
              think the Scorp version of the Airborne Insurgance Platform is pretty
              much the worst. Its weapons are weak, its shields are weak (well, 
              that's standard for all of them), its speed is mediocre (compared to
              the others), etc. Again, use the turret to fire at your opponent 
              while avoiding fire.
    Scorp Armored Support Vehicle ~
              Class: Treaded Assault
              Nickname: Stinger
              Max Speed: 64 kph
              Shield Strength: 24
              Energy Reservoir: 1200
              Height: 4.2 m.
              Weight: 8.9 tons
                        1 Swivel/Pitch SREM missile launcher (20 count)
                        1 Swivel/Pitch UNKPA missile launcher (10 count)
                        2 Swivel/Pitch zWASP guns (800 count)         
              Here's a mediocre tank. Its weapons are good, its shields are fine,
              but it's probably the slowest tank. Luckily, it's one of the more
              heavily armed tanks out there. 
              I don't have much to say. The only strategy I could possibly give for
              this HAWC would be to ride around your foe and fire upon them by 
              rotating the turret. Yeah yeah, I know, I've given this strategy for
              almost all the tanks and hovercrafts but there's not much you can do
              with a tank like the "Stinger." If you try any other approach, you'll
              probably get yourself killed.
