1-///INTRODUCTION///
Some people probably think that I'm late in this gaming thing.
To tell you the truth I only play when I've got the time to 
waste, which is very rare indeed.
This walkthrough is based upon what I have gone through already 
without the help of a any friends or game guides. Everything that 
shall be explained will be in a sense of what I have done through 
'hair pulling' trial and error. Therefore I am proud to bring to 
you my very own sweat and tears so that you won't have to shed any.
I haven't really spent much time on explaining every single detail 
to the Chrysaler Building. However, this guide is made more in-depth 
towards the bosses of the CB. I have made a complete startegy guide 
towards defeating the toughest of the tough bosses and have also 
spent some time explaining how to defeat the TRUE EVE.


2-///UNLOCKING THE CHRYSALER BUILDING///
To play the Chrysaler Building, you'll have to beat the game once. 
After the credits are finished rolling, you'll be awarded 3000 bonus 
points. Reinsert Disc 1 and prepare yourself for the EX Game, in 
which the Chrysaler Building is available straight after you beat 
the Carnegie Hall stage.


3-///PREPARATIONS///
In order to even survive in the Chrysaler Building, you'll need to 
have LIBERATE, the final PE move. This means you'll have to be level 
32 and over. To accomplish this, beat up to the T-Rex boss and then 
proceed into the Chrysaler Building.


4-///THE CHRYSALER BUILDING///
Navigating your way through the CB can be a frustrating job, because 
all the hallways resemble, and there are a lot of dead ends and paths 
that can have you running around in circles all day! And here's another 
thing, every 10 floors (1 level) you go up, you'll have to fight a boss 
to proceed to the next level. Everytime, you defeat a boss, you'll get 
a key for the elevators. If you don't defeat a boss, and you re-enter 
the building, all the pathways will be automatically changed; this 
applies to even when you step out of the building and re-enter it! So 
what I recommend to you is to shoot first and ask questions later. 
This means, to just go up and defeat the sub-bosses, so when you get 
the key, you'll have no trouble in getting at those powerful guns, 
armors and rare trading cards in any missed storage rooms 
(every floor has one).


5-///TIPS & TRICKS///
1. The enemies of floors 2-10 are mostly rats and crows(purple ones 
that is). If you kill a lot of these critters, you get lots of junk 
which can be very useful when giving them to Wayne. How is this useful 
you ask? Well I was suprised myself the first time it happened. You 
see, everytime I exited the Crysaler Building for more supplies from 
Wayne, I usually just asked him to discard my junk for me (Laziness,
I guess!) I've given him so much junk that after I gave him about
300 pcs or so, he asked me if I wanted him to make a gun out of all 
the junk that I brought him! (Sweet!) So go ahead and try it if you 
have the patience for it! I'm sure it'll be the best 2 hours you've
ever spent!

2. Although the enemies of floors 61-70 are downright pains in the 
backside, they yield tons of EXP. I recommend that you tarry around 
these levels to level up a bit. The 70th floor boss will definitely
be a 'toughie' if you're at a low level.

3. Collect 10 or 12 Rare T Cards and give them to Wayne and then ask 
him to see his Rare T Card Collection and he will give you a Tool Kit.

4. Give him 2 more rare cards and ask him to see his collection once 
more and he will give you the Super Toolkit (veeerrrryyy useful!)

\\\THE "SHOT/UL1" GUN\\\
Well this gun cannot be found in the game actually! This was actually a 
MAG rifle, then I cutomized it and Wayne asked me if I wanted to engrave 
a name onto it. This gun had:-
STATS - Attack -  265
        Range -   255
        Bullets - 110
SPECIAL EFFECTS - Quick Draw; Triple Command; Burst; Critical Bonus; 
                  Counter and Cyanide.

I guess you want one too! Well it's simple really, just shift all your 
bonus points to the attack stat of your favourite gun plus all those 
other gun power-ups. Work hard, get lots of BP and maybe your gun might
turn out as good as mine or even better!

\\\THE "AYA SP" ARMOR \\\
This was also a custom made armor (was originally a CR SUIT 2) that 
was forged in the depths of the Armory in the 17th precinct. 
Here's the rollout:-
STATS - Defense -   250
        PE Energy - 210
        Critical -  195
SPECIAL EFFECTS - MAX HP Increase; Attack Increase; Auto Potion; 
                  Auto Heal; Resist Poison, Darkness, Stiffness, 
                  Confusion; +4 Item Space

Tuning up this armor can take some time and BP but it's worth it. 
You won't believe how much of a lifesaver this is!

N.B -These are just small references and examples to what you can 
do with a super toolkit.


6-///BOSS STRATEGIES///
C.B - LEVEL 1 BOSS - SPIDER
Well he looks scary but he's a wuss just like his brother from the 
Hospital. The only difference is that you can't get away from his 
webs very easily because there isn't much space to run around in. 
The only thing you should do is LIBERATE, and kick his sorry behind.

C.B - LEVEL 2 BOSS - CROCADILES
These guys are just like those pair of crocs that I am certain that 
you have encountered in the sewers and...they're the stupidest idea 
for a floor boss! They're so lame, you don't even need to use LIBERATE! 
Just blow them away and get it over with!

C.B - LEVEL 3 BOSS - CENTIPEDE
He has the same attacks and strategy as the one in the Subway. But he's 
a little faster. However it's really no big deal how fast he is. Just 
blow him apart with LIBERATE and blow away his four segments afterwards. 
(Note: The head segment can poison you and the tail segment can cause
Darkness --- Ouchies!).

C.B - LEVEL 4 BOSS - TRICERATOPS
The only difference between this guy and the one from the Museum is 
their color, I guess! Just break off his head armor with LIBERATE 
and blow him the hell away afterwards!

C.B - LEVEL 5 BOSS - COCKROACH
(Note: I recommend a rifle with the Burst effect for this boss).
Well this a suprise--a new boss! This guy isn't a cockroach for nothing! 
It's gonna take A LOT of HIGH damaging shots to kill him. But he's simple 
really, the key is staying as far away from him as possible, but keeping 
him within firing range at the same time. Otherwise if you get too close 
by a little distance, he's gonna whip you with his antennae good! Try 
using LIBERATE from a distance to weaken him a bit, because he'll lay an 
egg that will hatch and grow into another cockroach! Now you'll have two 
of them to deal with! And this is the hard part. While one is flying around 
shooting balls of fire at you, one will be trying to whip your little ass! 
And the second cockroach is a bit faster, so use HASTE to help you get 
around him and those fireballs. Shoot them alternately or simultaneously, 
so that when one dies, the other wouldn't have a chance to lay another egg. 
Concentrate on the one on the ground, most likely the flying one will die 
first and the other will get ready to lay another egg, so kill him before 
the egg hatches! And it'll be the end of those killer cockroaches! 

C.B - LEVEL 6 BOSS - HYPER CRAB
(Note: I recommend a rifle/shotgun with the Burst effect for this boss).
Whoa! This guy is on some serious caffeine! He's pretty fast to keep up 
with at normal speed, so use HASTE ever so often. Like his brother in the 
Warehouse, he likes to start things off with his eye lasers, do your best 
at dodging them, because they come at you fast and furious! Now get ready 
to chase him down, cuz if you're not at his side he'll wipe you out with 
his bubble attack. There is one thing though; everytime you shoot him, 
he does a counter attack where he shoots out his two pincers in a forwards 
motion simultaneously, so corner him, stay at his side and keep on pumping 
lead into his pincers until you blow both of them off. Now's the hard part. 
He's gonna crawl even faster, so don't run in a complete circle to catch up, 
but just run straight at his side and wait until he does the bubble attack 
to shoot. It's the only possible way of getting rid of him without losing 
your head! 

C.B - LEVEL 7 BOSS - QUEEN HORNET
This boss is one hell of a 'you know what I mean'. She's big and she does 
this attack where she sends out this big wave at you and two boomerang-like 
projectiles all at once! They come at you so fast, you shall definitely 
need to use HASTE to dodge this killer attack! She also has two drones that 
give her 250 HP when she's hurt so don't even think about using LIBERATE, 
because you'll be wasting precious PE. This boss' strategy is to move to 
the center of the room and then move quickly to either the left or right 
top end and do the wave attack. While this is going on, the drones will be 
trying to sting you. Even when you kill them, more will be back to serve 
their queen. So here's your strategy: Dodge the first wave attack, run to 
the opposite side from where the queen is at and fire at her and the drones 
(A rifle with BURST, works wonders here). Use this strategy everytime she 
does a wave attack. Also don't shoot the queen while a drone is healing her, 
shoot the drone instead in order to kill him before he heals the queen. 
Another precaution when dodging a wave attack, while avoiding the boomerang 
beams, try not to get cornered by the drones, they can kill you instantly 
with just one sting.

PARASITE EVE (77th floor Chrysaler Building) - TRUE FINAL BOSS - MAYA

(PREPARATIONS - I hope that you're well stocked for this fight because it 
will surely take a lot of lives to beat this lady! Just keep a lot of Revives 
and a few Med 4's if you have any. You can collect these in the Museum from 
enemies if you need to stock up. Customize your primary weapon to the fullest, 
and your armor as well. You won't need a R. Launcher, it will only slow you 
down and plus it won't have much of an effect on Maya. Deposit any lucky 
charms and such for more room for recovery items. Now save your game, go up 
to the 77th floor cross your fingers and take a deep breath.)

This is how Maya strings her attacks together: First she just floats around 
the rather SMALL room and vanishes and reappears to do a LIBERATE attack. 
This can be dodged by waiting for her to fully reappear and run in a 
direction furthest away from her (HASTE is must), when she teleports to hit 
you run in a tight circle around her to get behind her attack (At first she 
does just one hit but when she gets weakened, she does more hits. All you 
have to do is to always try and get behind her, so that her attack misses you. 
Good luck in dodging them though!). Secondly, when she's really weakened, 
she'll vanish and reappear on some corner of the room and powers up (it takes 
about 5 seconds) and dashes straight towards you with blinding speed! When you 
get hit, it leaves you down to a staggering 1HP. Sadly enough, I've tried many
different techniques in trying to dodge this killer attack but it was all in 
vain...which means that this attack is inescapable. What you can do is stand
up and suck it in, then shoot Maya when she's huffing and puffing in a corner
after the charge attack. Just make sure she doesn't touch you after the dash
attack, so stay out of those corners and ends of the room.
Now Maya will call a little girl (Who has a striking resembelence to 
little Maya). If this happens---DON'T SHOOT MAYA! (the real one that is!) 
Otherwise all your efforts will be naught when she gets healed from one of 
her helpers. Wait until they are ready to leave then you can return to shooting
the living daylights out of Maya. Repeat the same steps, but don't be hasty wait
and see what Maya is going to do next then shoot depending on the situation.
If you have survived long enough to see Maya disintegrate, you shall be revealed
to the rest of the story. Enjoy the cool CG artwork afterwards!


CREDITS
Well as I have stated earlier, no one has helped me in figuring out how to 
defeat the true final boss neither has anyone helped me in writing this 
guide. So therefore I have only myself to thank! (;p)
