6.0) Battle Passport
###############################################################################
I won't spoil anything, so I haven't put much in this section.


-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_
6.1)-Getting the Passport 
-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_
-Go to the battle simulator at the beggining of the game once on board the Elsa.
-Go back to the room where you opened up the chest and had to fight the Drone GS.
-If you haven't already opened the chest, do so now to get the Battle Passport.


-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_
6.2)-Controls
-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_
This mini-game can be VERY hard to play. The controls are hard to explain, but
I will try my best.

Left weapon: L1 or L2

Right weapon: R1 or R2

Alternate weapon: L1 and R1 pressed together

Remove Left Weapon: L1 and L2 together

Remove right weapon: R1 and R2 together

Remove Alternate weapon: All 4 R and L buttons together

Forward: Press analog controler forward

Backward: MOve analog stick backwards

Left: Move analog stick left

Right: Move analog stick right

Pivot Body Left: Tilt left analog stick down while tilting right analog stick
up.

Pivot Body Right: Tilt right analog stick down while tilting left analog stick
up.

Jump Jet: Tilt both analog sticks AWAY from each other.

Short Dash: Press L3 or R3.

Pause game: Start.

-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_
6.3)-Single Player Missions
-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_

-Mission 1-
This one is easy. You should always equip a long range weapon and a sword.
Use the sword to slaughter the mech after about 6 hits. There are plenty of
destructable objects, so use them as cover.

-Mission 2-
A bit harder. Use the blocks seperating you from the enemy mech as cover.
Hopefully he will waste all of his missiles trying to destroy the blocks to
get to you. Use any beam weapon you can to take him out.

-Mission 3-
This guy is TOUGH! Use your rifles or long range weapons. This guy is extremely
fast and can dish out LOADS of damage. Whittle him down while using the pillars
as cover and you should'nt have too much of a problem.

-Mission 4-
You start far away from each other. Use this distance to your advantage and
whittle away at him with your Beam Rifle (If you have one in your possesion).
You do not get anything for beating this mini game, it's just loads of fun.
