    The most important thing to remember is to keep moving, and only shoot enemies
    that are in your path, don't go off and kill the lone guard in the corner who's
    shooting at you.  If you're running full tilt, he won't be shooting at you for
    long and you'll be long gone.  I'll try to be as detailed as I feel is needed
    for my methods of getting these secrets.
    
    *IMPORTANT*  
    The times that I have listed are the slowest times that I've seen SO FAR that
    work, just to give you an idea of what to aim for.  (The actual target time for
    these stages might be slower than what I have posted here.)

    Priestess Character (3 Minutes 55 Seconds)
    
    Ok this one is actually fairly easy, just keep in mind that speed is the
    strategy here.  As soon as the stage starts run forward and shoot the guard,
    then quickly go around the right side of the ramp in front of you and shoot the
    next guard.  Now turn around and run to the left of the target area, and pick
    up the box of bullets.  Now run to the entrance of the tomb while shooting the
    two guards outside.
    
    Run down the stairs, kill the two guards and grab the box of bullets.  Then run
    to the nearby pillar and shoot the two guards and the third nearby.  Turn
    towards the medkit and kill the guard there, save the kit for later.  Kill the
    guard to the right of the medkit and run into the nextroom.  Kill the guards
    behind the boxes and run up the ramp, killing the two guards at the top on your
    left.  Walk forward a little and kill the guard on your right and the zombie
    that just appeared.  Now run down the hall and kill the peeking guard on the
    left.  Then follow the tunnel and shoot one of the three boxes to kill all the
    guards behind them.  Quickly turn left and run towards the guard behind the box
    while shooting him.  Then turn around and shoot the other two guards while
    grabbing the medkit behind you.
    
    Now run down the nearby ramp killing all enemies in your path until you reach
    the mummy room with the medkit.  Here shoot the enemy by the medkit, ignore the
    mummies and run down the next ramp.  Kill the enemy down there and work your
    way through the pillars and down the next ramp.  Kill the three enemies in this
    room, one is in front of you, the other two are on your left when you enter
    the room.  Then rush down the nearby ramp, killing the two zombies that
    usually appear as you go.  Rush down the next ramp, take a right and go down
    yet another ramp.  Here go left at the first opening, and follow the path
    around, kill the on the way.  As you move towards the ankh two zombies will
    appear so be sure to get rid of them before you grab it.
      
    Now its the usual drill with the timesplitters, so just be quick, and strafe a
    lot and they shouldn't be too much of a problem.  Most of them show up at the
    top of the many ramps on your trip back.  Also three will show up at once when
    you reach the mummy room with the medkit.  Following that room you will see a
    couple of zombies with guns so kill them as you make for the target area.
    
    ============
    1970 Chinese
    ============
    
    Gun Sounds Cheat (3 Minutes 22 Seconds)
    
    This one can be a little troublesome so be persistant.  As soon as the stage
    starts strafe left to grab the uzi, then run forward and strafe right.  Now
    shoot the enemy, and the next one that will come running behind him.  Shoot the
    guy in the distance, now step up the stairs and kill the guy on your right.
    Also shoot the 3 guys through the window, then walk towards the door.  Kill the
    guard that pops out from behind the pillar and shoot the guard behind it near
    the medkit.  Grab the medkit if you need it and run out the door beside it.
    Kill the guy on your right, then run towards him, pick up his ammo and kill the
    guy behind the statue.  Now shoot the guy behind him at the back wall of this
    open area, using the statue for cover.  Next kill the guy who's peeking out and
    shooting you ahead.  Run towards the opening on the other side and kill the guy
    just beyond it.
    
    Now strafe left through the opening and kill the 4-5 grenade throwing guys in
    the distance.  Strafe past the front door to the restaurant while shooting the
    enemies inside.  Then once you have killed or lured out the two that are
    moving, rush inside and kill the 2-3 behind the counter.  Now run under the
    balcony on your right, and turn left.  You should be able to shoot a guy on the
    second floor from here.  Then back up towards the gong and shoot another
    second floor guard from there.  Now rush up the stairs quickly, turn left, and
    strafe right so that you will be facing the two guards that come running
    towards you.  After killing them rush down the stairs behind them in the next
    room.
    
    Grab the medkit from the bathroom if needed but make sure you get the body
    armor in the next room.  (It is guarded by a lone enemy.)  Then rush back to
    the gong room and take the other passageway into a similar looking room.  As
    long as you go down the stairs into this room fast enough you should be able to
    get the drop on two enemies that will come running from the bathroom area.
    Once they are dispatched, enter this room and shoot the guy on your left.  If
    you need health get it from this bathroom.  Then approach the kitchen and
    shoot the 2 enemies in front of you.  Quickly run into the kitchen then back
    out the way you came.  about 4 enemies should now run in front of you, so make
    short work of them.
    
    Now rush into the kitchen and kill the 2 enemies on the left, and the 2-3 on
    the right using whatever technique you want.  Then enter the door on the right
    side of the room, killing the guy who is waiting in the shadows.  As you
    approach the stairs to the basement, look down slightly and kill the guy below
    before he notices you.  Then rush downstairs and hang a left.  Follow the
    tunnel into a room with about 3 enemies all behind boxes.  Shoot them or their
    boxes to get rid of them and rush to the case at the end which is guarded by
    one guy.  Now the timesplitters show up, the best strategy with them is to
    strafe a lot.  Two or three should show up on your way back to the stairs that
    lead to the kitchen.  Once in the kitchen one or two will show up near the
    center of the room.  So kill them fast, then bolt for the door that is on the
    same wall as the other one.  Open it (press X) and run back to the entrance of
    the level.
    
    
    =============
    2005 Cyberden
    =============
    
    Tuxedo Cyborg Character (5 Minutes 0 Seconds)
    
    This one didn't give me too much trouble, the main thing is to head straight
    for switch (computer console).  Of course you will want to kill most of the
    enemies on your way, and be sure to grab the vest at the end of the hall before
    the turret.
    
    Exit the room with the chip and turn right, follow the hall and go through the
    newly opened door.  Now drop down and run straight, then turn around and kill
    the 2 enemies that will now be after you.  Then destroy the turret in the
    corner of the room.  Right near the turret will be another passage, kill the
    guard here as he is packing a rocket launcher.  Then proceed to the chip.  Once
    you have it, drop down into the gap below the rocket's engines.  From here,
    make your way back to the entrance via the ramp near the first turret you saw
    in this stage.
    
    
    ============
    1950 Village
    ============
    
    Hick Hyde Character (1 Minute 51 Seconds)
    
    For this one, speed is the main thing, but a bit of accuracy helps too.  As
    soon as the stage starts speed towards the docks where the medkit is located.
    Kill some enemies on your way there as you run by them, and grab the medkit.
    
    Now head right, along the rocky area.  Shoot the enemies with your shotgun,
    then switch to your tommy gun as you enter the first tunnel.  Head downstairs
    when you see the opening on your right and continue until you reach the
    artefact at the end.  As soon as you grab it, the wall will open up behind it.
    
    Shoot the head off of the zombie in here.  Then kill the other two that appear
    as you head for the stairs.  Kill the zombie that appears when you climb the
    stairs, and shoot the zombie that's not paying attention to you upstairs.  As
    soon as you get up on that floor more zombies will come, and a timesplitter
    most of the time.
    
    So run behind the ledge on your right, and kill them there.  Shoot the guy
    outside and exit the building.  Now turn left and run back to the entrance,
    there are a few timesplitters in this area, so shoot them when you can, and you
    should make it.
    
    
    ===================
    1985 Chemical Plant
    ===================
    
    Infinite Ammo Cheat (1 Minute 15 Seconds)
    
    This one was VERY difficult, until I found the right strategy.
    
    As soon as the stage starts switch to the pistol.  When using it you want to be
    able to fire it quite rapidly.  One trick is to have a finger on each R button
    then hit R1 and then R2 really quickly after one another.  However use whatever
    works for you.  Run straight outand ignore the snipers while shooting the guy
    behind the crates.  Keep running then turn right to nail the sniper.  Then look
    left to kill the guy in the doorway and the sniper above him.  By now an enemy
    should be running towards you so be sure to take him out.  Also turn left and
    take out the sniper, and one of the guards behind him (up high).  Now turn
    right and fire a couple of shots at the 2 guys behind the wall while running
    towards the crates.
    
    Grab the armor and grenade launcher and blast (use the explosive shots with the
    grenade launcher)the 3 guys that come running from the door back in the main
    street.  Pick up their weapons and quickly kill the 2 guards that will be
    lurking just inside the door on your left, with the grenade launcher.  Kill the
    enemy that should come running in, then walk where he died and back up fast.
    Two more enemies should come running so get rid of them.  Now run up the
    stairs, shoot the guy at the top and go left along the catwalk.  Follow the
    U-turn in the catwalk and shoot the guy at the end, watch out for the grenade
    launcher guard just outside.  Kill him and the guard near him, and run into the
    building.  Shoot the guy that will be ahead of you as you enter, ignore the guy
    on your left.
    
    Run past the dead guy and outside, strafe left a bit and run across the hole in
    the catwalk.  Once you reach the door on your left, run inside and grab the
    case.  Quickly exit through the door you came in, drop down to the ground and
    bolt for the target area.  As usual the timesplitters will show up when you
    grab the case so be ready for them.  Occasionally one of them will block the
    door you came in, so blast him fast and hopefully you'll survive.
    (Big thanks go out to Dave for the help on this one!)
    
    
    =============
    2020 Planet-X
    =============
    
    Float Alien Character and Float Alien Bot (3 Minute 38 Seconds)
    
    This one is not that difficult to get.  From the start strafe left and fall off
    the end of the ledge.  Now turn left and run towards the curving ramp.  On your
    way you can kill 3 aliens, one with a rocket launcher on your left, near the
    ramp.  Make your way up the ramp, and turn left at the top.  When you walk
    forward 3 aliens will appear, kill them and shoot the alien in the cave on your
    left.
    
    Enter the cave and kill the 7 or so aliens inside.  Continue through the cave
    until you see the medkit, a couple of aliens will appear.  Kill them before
    grabbing the medkit.  Now go up the ramp in the middle of the room and follow
    the tunnel outside.  Kill the enemies on the way, and eventually the tunnel
    will end.  When you hit this metallic wall, go left.  Kill the enemy that
    appears as you approach the end of the tunnel and make your way down the ramps
    to the cyberbrain below.
    
    As soon as you grab the cyberbrain 4 aliens will appear around you so be quick
    to kill them.  Now work your way back up the ramps to the top.  And follow the
    tunnel into a few brightly coloured rooms.  The enemies here are easy to kill,
    just be quick.  Once you reach the end, you will be inside another rocky
    tunnel.  At the end an enemy should appear, work your way out of the short
    tunnel and around the cliff's ledge to the exit.  A couple of timeplitters will
    appear on the way.

    1965 Mansion
    ============
    
    Overall Mutant Character (5 Minutes 3 Seconds)
    
    This one was not too difficult once I knew the order to do things.  As soon as
    it starts use your target to behead the two zombies.  Then do the same to the
    next two that appear.  Grab the ammo and run into the next room, killing the
    zombie that appears in front of you.  Reload and kill the other two that show
    up on your left.  Now duck down and kill the mutant that's firing at you from
    above.  Then run forward, shooting the mutant that pops out in front of you.
    Turn right and kill the zombie down the stairs.  Then run down them and kill
    the next zombie.  Turn left and run forward a little killing one or both
    (depends how brave you are) of the two mutants that pop out.  (There is one on
    each side of the tunnel)  Then turn left and strafe right, shooting the waiting
    mutant.  Turn right and walk forward a bit, then kill the zombie that appears
    in front of you.  Now turn left and strafe right once again to kill another
    waiting mutant.  Then turn left and walk forward, killing anohter zombie that
    appears in front of you.  Check around the corner a little and shoot the police
    zombie. (who has a gun, they all do in this level so take them out FAST)  Two
    zombie should appear nearby, kill them and walk towards the spot where the
    police zombie was standing.  Two more zombies will appear, so kill them and
    kill the mutant on the stairs above you.
    
    Proceed up the stairs and shoot the mutant when he pops up from behind the
    desk.  A police zombie should run out from the left of the mutant, so make
    short work of him.  Grab the health from the little alcove behind the police
    zombie.  Two zombies WILL appear before you grab it so be ready.  Then proceed
    into the house a little more, shoot the mutant that pops out, then back up and
    hide.  Pop out and shoot the zombie who is trying to fire at you from the dead
    mutant's position.  Turn left and strafe right a little, shoot the two ARMED
    zombies at the top of the stairs.  Take out the turret (moose head) in the next
    room, and the other one just to its right.  Now run into the room and kill the
    police zombie that appears in the corner to the right of the turrets.  Run into
    the next hallway and shoot the zombie that appears.  Quickly turn right, and
    shoot the two police zombies in the distance.  Run forward and kill the third
    on the stairs on your right.
    
    Run under the stairs and grab the medkit, then follow the u-shaped tunnel to
    the other side.  Run up the stairs in front of you, turn left and run forward.
    When approaching the corner, turn right and strafe left, shooting the police
    zombie just around the corner before he can hit you.  Move ahead some more,
    kill the zombie in the next room up ahead.  Then run into that room and shoot
    the police zombie in the room ahead of this one.  Run in there and kill the
    police zombie in the next room, also kill the peeking mutant who should be
    right beside him.  Strafe left a little and look to your right, kill the other
    peeking mutant.
    
    Now back up into the previous room and go into the hallway, turn right and
    strafe left, kill the police zombie that is waiting for you.  Now grab the
    health in the next room, and kill the two (armed) zombies at the top of the
    nearby stairs.  Run up the stairs, turn right and walk forward, killing the
    police zombie that will appear on the right side of the wall.  Go to his corpse
    and turn right, strafe left a little and shoot the mutant lurking ahead.  Then
    run ahead and quickly hide behind the left wall.  Another mutant will come
    running with guns blazing, so strafe right and pop him.  Follow the hallway and
    as you come near the next room one zombie will appear, kill it.
    
    Then walk towards the room and shoot the police zombie that appears on the
    right.  Then back up and wait for the two armed zombies to come around the
    corner, then shoot 'em.  You're almost done now, run into the room and to the
    back wall.  Turn left and run to the end of the hall.  Shoot the mutant that
    pops out here, sometimes two zombies also warp in here, so if they show up,
    show them the way out.  Then run ahead, turn left and run for the bones.  Two
    more armed zombies will appear around the item so shoot one, back up and hide,
    reload and shoot the other.
    
    Now that you have the item run back to the room you just cam from.  Kill the
    two zombies that appear and turn right, shoot that zombie.  Now run a quarter
    of the way down the stairs, two armed (and VERY dangerous, most people die
    here!) zombies will appear, so shoot one and run back up the stairs and to the
    right to hide.  Then reload and take out the other one.  Run down the stairs
    and be ready to shoot the mutant on your left at the bottom.  As soon as you
    kill him, one of his friends will come running, so take him out.  Now keep
    going down the stairs until you reach the exit of the house.
    
    Shoot the two timesplitters in the distance.  (yeah they're in this stage too
    remember?)  Then exit the house and turn left, strafe right a little and shoot
    the two timesplitters on the wooden thing above the target area.  Now run down
    the stairs and head for the target area, BUT be sure to have your back to it,
    because there is a mutant under the stairs who kills many people here.  So
    don't let him get you, shoot him as you back up into the exit.  And that is
    that!

    2000 Docks

    Big Hands Cheat (2 Minutes 6 Seconds)
    
    This one isn't too bad once you know the right strategy.  As soon as the stage
    starts switch from the sniper rifle to the pistol. (left on the cross)  Then
    run out from the boxes and forward a bit, and kill the 2-3 enemies that peek
    around the corner.  Then rush around the corner and kill the two grenade
    chucking enemies behind the boxes.  Pick up all ammo and the assault rifles.
    If it hasn't switched to the assault rifles already you should do so.
    
    Run out into the main part of the docks and kill the next two box enemies.
    Grab their ammo only if you didn't get all of the ammo earlier.  Now run
    parallel to the building with it on your left, but hug the boxes on your right.
    Now quickly run towards the turret while strafing right, its shots should miss
    you for the most part.  Then run under it, through the tunnel and turn right on
    the other side.  Kill the enemy in the distance, to the right a little, past
    the building.  Then turn right and kill the enemy on the top of the stairs.
    Run up the stairs, into the building, up another set of stairs and into the
    alcove in the wall.
    
    Take a moment, then turn around and kill the 2-3 enemies that should now be
    climbing the stairs you just used, to get to you.  Now turn around and enter
    the next room.  Rush down the stairs and into the alcove on your right.  From
    here you should kill the 4-5 enemies in the room as fast and safe as you can.
    Then rush up the stairs at the end of the room with guns blazing.  You should
    kill a couple of peeking guards, then 2-3 enemies will come running around
    the corner.  You can either kill them in the open or duck into the alcove on
    your left and lure them there.  After that rush farther on and kill the enemy
    behind the box at the end of the hall.  Then kill the 3 enemies behind the
    glass and grab the much needed body armour.
    
    Then zip around into the next chamber for the briefcase.  The timesplitters
    will of course start showing up now but you should be ok.  Kill the one that
    appears near you and run down the hall, killing the next one that appears in
    front of you.  Then run down the stairs back into the open room, 3
    timesplitters will appear.  Ignore them and drop to the floor, then run forward
    and go through the door on your right.  Kill the timesplitter that appears near
    the metal boxes and take a hard left past the turret again.  Turn right after
    it and go straight, past the stairs, strafe left a little and keep going
    straight.  Once you are at the very end you will see a few soldiers, shoot
    those in your way while making a right around the metal boxes.  Now run
    straight towards the second turret, kill the guard to the right of it and run
    towards the wall.  Now just run around the corner, past the turret and into the
    target area.

    2035 Spaceways
    ==============
    
    Female Alien Character and Female Alien Bot (1 Minute 3 Seconds)
    
    This one took me a few times, mainly to figure out how to shave off 15 seconds.
    The main thing is speed, so as soon as you start, run forward and shoot the 2
    enemies.  Then strafe right a bit to dodge the cab while entering the building.
    Two enemies will appear at the end of the hall, shoot the one on the right
    while strafing around the right corner.  Here shoot another enemy and run up
    the ramp in front of you while nailing an enemy on your right.  There will be
    an enemy at the top of the ramp most of the time so kill him and rush through
    the main hall. (Though there is a medkit in the lobby in the beginning of the
    stage, if you grab it you probably won't make the target time.  So if your
    health is in the red by this point restart the stage)
    
    As you approach the door fire an explosive shot at both sides of the door.
    This will kill the enemies on the other side.  Then when the door opens you can
    kill the two enemies at the end of the room.  Keep trudging through the
    hallways, past the double turret room (don't worry about destroying the
    turrets), and into the room with the two enemies that are behind boxes.  Take a
    left and when the door opens, rain explosive shots at the door at the other end
    of the room while running.  The may take out the turrets and will certainly
    make short work of the enemies that usually show up here.  Run out the door and
    up the left ramp.  Shoot the 2 stewardesses at the top and do a U-turn up the
    ramp beside you.
    
    Kill the 3-5 aliens that may show up in this room as you grab the duty-free
    goods.  Then run back down the ramp and up the ramp in front of it.  Kill
    another stewardess, and maybe a couple of timesplitters. (Sometimes they're
    there, sometimes not)  And run like hell into your ship, if done right the
    rocket launcher should miss you with both shots.

    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:

    Many thanks, and I hope you continue to use my work!
