    I have decided not to allow websites other than Gamefaqs (www.gamefaqs.com),
    IGN (faqs.ign.com), Gamerhelp (www.gamerhelp.com) & Gamespot (www.gamespot.com)
    to host my FAQs from now on.
    Please don't ask, because I will not grant permission.  It's just that too many
    sites don't keep their version of my FAQ up to date which makes for a lot of
    hassle in my mailbox.
    So if anyone sees this FAQ on any site other than those mentioned above, please
    let me know and I will take care of the situation, thanks.
    
    Just to make things crystal clear for some people, this FAQ is not to appear

    are green and enemies are red.
    
    Avoid the shots from above until a cutscene starts, then get behind the boxes
    to your left and hit square to pick up some frag grenades.  Use L1 to throw the
    grenades at the enemies up ahead, then shoot the rest of them.
    
    
    ------------------------------------
    Let's Move Out To The Next Courtyard

    the door with the blue symbol on it up ahead.  This symbol marks save rooms, so
    head down the ramp inside and use the nearby machine to save your game.
    
    Leave the save room and head for [use the alcoves along the way for some ammo
    and health packs] the open area to your left.  Shoot the enemies until a
    cutscene starts, then continue shooting to trigger another cutscene.  Use your
    grenades to take out the bots and the remaining enemies.

    stage.

    ----------------------------
    Disable The Jamming Computer
    ----------------------------
    
    Head for the second floor [if you're not there already] and go see Chung for a

    some rockets from the shelves], then use the yellow panel to start a cutscene.
    
    Leave the room and shoot the enemies through the nearby windows, then go to the
    streets here and shoot another enemy around the corner.  Enter the next
    building and shoot an enemy up high behind you, then climb the stairs and shoot
    some more enemies [use your shield augmentation to help] through the window.
    
    Cross the walkway and collect the ammo and health pack, then head down the
    stairs and kill any remaining enemies.  Pick up all the ammo and the health

    enemies in this long room as you watch the health of your car.  There's another
    car you can steal at the end of the room, so take it once you reach it.
    
    Drive around the corner just ahead and run over a few more enemies, then get
    out and use the security panel on your left to disable the alarm and stop the
    turret from shooting you.  Use your icepick on the nearby blue panel to control
    the turret and use it to get rid of the other enemies here, then run over the
    rest of the enemies farther down.
    
    Turn off the alarm to get through the gate and kill any remaining enemies, then
    go around the next corner and shoot a few enemies and a trio of bots [use your
    rocket launcher or EMP grenades on the bots].  Shut off the alarm and go to the
    fenced area to your left for some ammo and items.  Get in the hydra and try
    driving while also controlling the turret on top.
    
    Drive farther ahead and take out a bot, then continue around the next corner.
    Run over or shoot all the enemies here, then leave your vehicle and avoid the
    large hole in the middle of the room.  Get in the phoenix here and kill the
    enemy by the anti-tank gun, then drive around the next corner.
    
    Detonate some mines and shoot a few enemies, then enter the save room that was
    on your left when you came up to this section.  Pick up the mine launcher in
    here and save your game.  Return to your car and run over a few more enemies up
    ahead, then shoot the mines in your way and go around the next corner.
    
    Shoot the nearby enemies and shut off the alarm using the switch on your left.
    Open the garage-style door to get in the fenced area, then duck for a health
    pack.  Use your icepick on the panel here to take control of the turret and
    kill off a few enemies, then use your rockets on a bot up ahead.
    
    Ignore the gate and go through some vents to your left instead, then snipe the
    first enemy and shoot up the others with another weapon [like your carbine].
    Smash the supply crates here for some health packs, then enter the door ahead
    of you and kill a pair of enemies.  Grab the ammo and enter the elevator in the
    back right corner to end the stage.

    Kill the group of enemies here and smash the supply crates, then turn of the
    alarm and open the locker at the other end of the room.  Go through the door
    here and kill a few enemies [try the sniper rifle for farther ones, or shooting

    the ammo and climb up the ladder, then crouch at the top to enter the vents.
    
    Take either path and shoot the enemies on the other side, then use your icepick
    on the blue panel to your left.  Overload the camera and set the turret to
    attack enemies, then go to the yellow panel on the right side of the room.  Use
    this panel to expose the vents on the rail cannon, then get some items from the
    nearby locker.  Turn around and attack the vents near the bottom of the rail
    cannon to get your next objective.
    
    
    ---------------------
    Destroy Rail Cannon 2

    first turret, then enter the nearby door and quickly shoot the guard and his
    friends.
    
    Climb the stairs and destroy a bot ahead of you, then take out another one to
    your right.  Use your icepick on the security panel near the first bot, then
    overload both cameras and the AI on the turret.  Go back down the stairs and
    enter the area with the rail cannon.  Watch the vents for damaging steam and
    shoot the large grey vent until the vents open up on the rail cannon.  Quickly
    shoot those vents before they close up again to get your next objective.
    
    
    ---------------------
    Destroy Rail Cannon 3
    ---------------------
    
    Climb the fence in the back right corner [or climb down the ladder from above]
    and enter the hall beyond.  Go to the end of the hall for a bio-energy cell and
    a health pack, then use the save point.
    
    Return to the hall and enter the vents, then ignore the security panel as you
    go through some more vents.  Ignore the windows and turret behind you as you
    enter the next room.  Quickly shoot out the camera to your right as you raid
    the locker and turn off the alarm [if needed].  Check the locker to your left
    for a nano boost and enter the next room.
    
    Shoot 3-4 guards before entering the section with the rail cannon, but watch
    for steam as you go.  Shoot the other guards above through the floor and shoot
    the camera in the corner, then climb the ladder and use the yellow panel to
    open the vents on the rail cannon.  Hack the blue panel up here to disable some
    tripwires, then drop to the ground and open the locker for another nano boost
    [remember where this nano boost is if you already have one].  Now shoot the
    vents on the rail cannon to get your next objective.
    
    
    ---------------------
    Destroy Rail Cannon 4
    ---------------------
    
    Return to the second floor and head down the stairs, then go through the door
    and kill a trio of guards to your right.  Open the locker and use the save
    point in the nearby save room.
    
    Return to the hall and shoot an enemy in the next section, then go through the
    door at the end of the hall.  Check the locker for some ammo before you jump on
    the boxes, then jump the first set of lasers and crouch under the second set.
    
    Check another locker and enter the next room, then climb the stairs and shoot
    two enemies.  Head left and check the locker before using the yellow panel to
    open the vents on the rail cannon.  Shoot any spiderbots in your way and

    Shoot a small group of enemies and enter the bright alcove near the turn, but
    don't walk farther in or the heat will damage you.  Fire your icepick at the
    blue panel and disable both tripwires, then use the kinetic kicker to bring the
    box with the health pack towards you.
    
    Rush to the corner of the next section [by the giant screen] to avoid the shots
    from the helicopter, then run past the table to the next corner.  run up the
    stairs and into the small room ahead of you, then use the computer to access
    the republic mainframe and end the stage.

    Enter the nearby supply area for some items and go under the stairs for some
    supply crates and more items.  Jump up the debris in the corner and enter the
    vents, then shoot the group of enemies at the other end.  Grab the ammo and use

    to help you.
    
    Enter the door to your right and get the items from the lockers, then find the
    room with the projector.  Enter the bathroom beyond while shooting the guard,

    Get To The Access Hatch Under The Helipad

    Shoot a couple enemies to your right and take a health pack, then head left to
    kill another group of enemies.  Pretty soon you get told that you can head east
    to get more equipment or go south to reach the exit.  I recommend heading south
    since the items aren't that great east of you, but the choice is up to you.
    
    If you go east you will find a LOT of enemies and only a little bit of ammo and
    an bio-energy upgrade.  In my opinion, it's not worth it so go south instead.
    A cheap way to finish the level is to just keep using your cloak augmentation
    and run past all the enemies, but if you want to do it the hard way you just
    need to kill the enemies along the way.
    
    Once you reach the helipad look for some lasers and a passage through the
    middle of it.  Run through the lasers to the hatch beyond in order to end the
    stage.

    ###############################################################################
    
    Be sure to reload between fights so that you're as ready as possible for the
    next one.
    
    Smash all supply boxes to find helpful items, weapons and ammo.
    
    Look carefully in areas to find items and pick them up with square [after
    pointing at them] instead of walking over them if you need to.
    
    Although you can switch augmentations, weapons, and secondary fire modes with
    the dpad there's a better way.  If you use your inventory to do these jobs,
    then the game pauses as you access your inventory.  This gives you plenty of
    time to plan what you want to do, instead of changing on the fly, while dodging
    and shooting enemies.
    
    Save rooms show up as blue beacons if you switch them on with select.
    
    REMEMBER TO USE YOUR AUGMENTATIONS!  They can't help you if you forget to use
    them.
    
    Your cover is terrible at the edge of walls and doorways, so hide a little
    farther in on the wall so that you don't get hit [just has to do with the way
    the game's programmed].
    
    You can fire your icepick from REALLY far in order to hack panels, so you don't
    need to get really close and risk taking damage.

    For a little while now I've had a paypal link in all my FAQs at the very bottom
    here.  Mainly as a small experiment since a few other FAQ authors have also had
    the same idea.
    
    I had a few people email me before I put this link in because they wanted to
    send money, so it's here for those people.
    
    
    For the record I've received about $87 (which works out to a bit more in
    Canadian lol) last I checked, so I've been getting cases of pop and making some
    excellent progress on a few FAQs.
    
    If you don't want to send money or can't then send me an email, it's nice to
    hear what people thought about my work and there's always room for improvement.
    
    My email address is fecalord (AT) gmail (DOT) com, and the paypal address is
    listed below.
    
    
    For those that want to contribute, you can use paypal at the following address:
    
    fecalord2002 (AT) yahoo (DOT) ca
    
    Many thanks, and I hope you continue to use my work!
