Well, with a memory card or controller pak, you can nurture a wrestler of your own creation into near-godliness! These wrestlers can have ten more points then all of the WWF superstars, and in time, can have the best of all attributes. This FAQ is designed to help you through the growing pains of these new wrestlers. ============================================================ 2.0-PRELIMINARIES AND BASIC CREATION Before you begin, I would suggest you beat the WWF Challenge with Farrooq or Ken Shamrock, Kane, and either Triple H or Shawn Michaels. The Farrooq/Shamrock win allows you to get rid of blocking, which helps a LOT in Hard mode. Kane gives you new outfits for your custom wrestlers to try on, and the D-Generation X combo gives you the option of female wrestlers. And NO, I do not condone the nearly nude female doing Shawn's "Suck it!" taunt. But, it's your game, do with it as you will. Anyway, name and outfit your wrestler, then go to the points screen. Take off all 5 Toughness points and donate them to Charisma. Trust me, when the crowd is on your side, you cannot lose. Then take 2 Recovery Points and give one each to Strength and Speed. Your wrestler should be: Strength: 6 Toughness: 0 Speed: 6 Recovery: 3 Charisma: 10 Now choose whomever superstar's moves you're most familiar with, save, and let's go! ============================================================ 3.0-EARNING POINTS First off, set the difficulty to Normal. Enter a Cage Match and win. (Easy with all that cheering, wasn't it?) Take this point and donate it to Strength or Speed. Now, go to Hard mode and win the Weapons, Versus, and Tag Team (with your custom wrestler twice) matches. Give one point to Recovery and two to whatever attribute is still at six, be it Strength or Speed. Take three Speed points and give them to Recovery, and change your move list to Bret Hart. You now have: Strength: 7/8 Toughness: 0 Speed: 4/5 Recovery: 7 Charisma: 10 Take your wrestler and enter a Normal Royal Rumble. I chose Bret's moves because his Overhead Belly to Belly Suplex is easy to pull off (L, R,Punch), and you can't be thrown out of the ring when you are being cheered for. You earn two points for winning on Normal, and three on Hard. Put your two points into whatever you like, and then win Hard. Those three points will be really helpful later. Go to the Custom Wrestler Room and use these stats: Strength: 10 Toughness: 0 Speed: 10 Recovery: 4 Charisma: 10 ****IMPORTANT**** You might want to sacrifice Charisma for other attributes through this. DON'T. Acclaim put this here because it is the most powerful part of Warzone. The loss in Toughness and Recovery is countered by the fact that all your moves will always do double (or more) damage when you are being cheered, and that is almost continuous with a 10 Charisma. Also, you can NEVER be pinned when the crowd is on your side. It should now be really simple to win a Gauntlet match (with this config I've beaten all six in under 6 minutes with no countouts, email me if you've done better). Change your move settings to Rocky Maivia and change your attributes anyway you like, as long as you have 10 Strength, Speed, and Charisma. Now, you're ready for the Challenge! ============================================================4.0-WINNING THE WWF CHALLENGE The challenge (on Hard Level) should be a piece of cake for a wrestler who has 6 more points then all the others, but use Maivia's moves, as his Hurricanrana (L, R,U, Kick) and Laying the Smack Down (L,R,U,Punch) are high damage moves that don't require a tie-up and (in the case of Laying the Smack Down) are never countered. Keep the crowd on your side and always do as many turnbuckle moves as you can, as one can get the crowd cheering for you again with 10 Charisma. It'll take about 17-21 battles (with Grudges included), but take your time and win all of them. Once you have 40 points, distribute them any way you like. (8 across the board works well, but I still recommend 10 Charisma.) ============================================================5.0-Q&A EMAILED QUESTIONS ANSWERED Q-How can I use Bad Ass/Jesse James/Val Venis/X-Pac/Yokozuna? A-You CANNOT access these characters by name and trademark. They aren't coded in the game, but you may be able to create a general likeness. Q-How do I do the People's/Corporate Elbow? A-Sorry, not in the game. The Rock started using it in Summer 1998, about four months after coding stopped for this game. Be happy the Rock Bottom's in here: Maivia used a Shoulderbreaker when coding began. Q-What is Hero Mode? I won 100+ matches and still can't unlock it! A-Sorry. Hero Mode is Rattlesnake, and the 100+ matches thing was a rumor at the time, and isn't true. Again, sorry. Q-Why 10 Charisma? Power/Speed is better! A-No, it isn't. 10 Power does 150% normal damage, plus multipliers, minus defense. Sacrifice 2 Power for Charisma at 10, and you get 160% almost all the time, plus tie-up/top rope/stun multipliers. Besides, when you have the crowd on your side, a red bar opponent will ALWAYS tap at a submission hold, and you will NEVER be pinned. EVER! Q-How can my custom wrestlers get 50/50 points? A-You can't. 40 is the max. Q-How many wrestlers can be stored on my memory card? A-Up to 30, including real wrestler's save games. Q-My friend says he got Turok on his N64 version of Warzone! A-No, he didn't. Turok is only in the PSX version, and only with Gameshark. Q-My friend says it's true! A-Your friend is a filthy liar. Go find a new friend. Q-How do I do Wrestler XXX's Finisher? A-That will be answered in a new FAQ, with EVERY move's description, button presses, damage, and ranking! Q-Who is the best wrestler? A-That depends. ============================================================6.0-POINTS LIST AND SPECIAL THANKS Initial Wrestler Points-----------------------25 Points Winning WWF Challenge (Hard)--------------------4 Points Winning Royal Rumble (Hard)---------------------3 Points Winning Royal Rumble (Normal)-------------------2 Points Winning Gauntlet Match (Normal/Hard)------------2 Points Winning Cage Match (Normal/Hard)----------------1 Point Winning Versus Match (Hard)---------------------1 Point Winning Tag Team Match (Hard)-------------------1 Point Winning Weapons Match (Hard)--------------------1 Point ------------------------------------------------------- Total Possible Points-------------------------40 Points SPECIAL THANKS Thanks to Acclaim, Iguana, and the team who made Warzone possible.
