KONAMI'S ZONE OF THE ENDERS THE 2nd RUNNER EX MISSION ITEM LOCATION Written by: ReverseTheMonkey E-Mail: ReverseTheMonkey@hotmail.com Version: 1.0 03/21/03 ............................................................................... INTRODUCTION Scattered throughout the various environments are small items called EX MISSION ITEMS. They are small, rectangular, and translucent objects that are cleverly (well some of them) hidden. They can be collected on any level of difficulty and with any type of JEHUTY. The purpose of these items, as the name implies, is to unlock Extra Missions. These missions test your skill as a runner and provide you with more action. One method to help you locate these items is to use the L2 button. If you are close to an EX ICON then you will lock on to that item when L2 is tapped. As long as there are no enemies around you can easily zero in on these items if they are present on the field. The ones that need to be uncovered will not respond to the L2 lock-on. The other method to locate these items is to read this FAQ. This FAQ includes descriptions of where and how to obtain each EX ICON. It also makes references to places on the map (accessed by the start button) if possible. Now, time to go hunting... A. BAHRAM BATTLESHIP After attaining JEHUTY and defeating ARDJET, you fly into the BATTLESHIP flying overhead... 1. Defeat all of the enemies in the third room. After doing so, return to the second room. It should be easily visible floating on the other side of the doorway. B. MARGARITIFIER After escaping from Deimos Station, you arrive on mars. You are then confronted by the transforming VIC VIPER... 2. During your battle with VIC VIPER, destroy the rock above the entrance to CAPRI CANYON in the north-eastern corner of the map. You will need to lock on to the icon and use the subweapon WISP to get it. Work quickly to prevent being attacked by VIC VIPER. (This can only be attained by starting a new game from a saved finished game. Replay the game with all subweapons equipped.) 3. After the battle with VIC VIPER, ADA will inform you of METATRON near by. It is in the north-western part of the map on a place called SIE'S LAB. Upon retrieving the METATRON several enemies will come after you. Destroy the NARITA's and at some point ADA will say: "Estimated combat time 90 seconds." When she says this, press the L3 button (push in left joystick). DINGO should respond. A timer will appear and count down. You will have 90 seconds to defeat the rest of the enemies. ADA will notify you if you completed the task successfully. The EX ICON will appear on top of the entrance to CAPRI CANYON. 4. At the south-end there is a bridge with a train wreck. Fly towards the bottom of the bridge to find another EX ICON. 5. On the lower plateau just south-east of SIE'S LAB (place where METATRON was), there is a rock. Blow it up to uncover an EX ICON. 6. There is a rock in the northern-most point on the map. It is on the midpoint between SIE'S LAB and the entrance to CAPRI CANYON. C. CAPRI CANYON This is the part where you need to destroy the two locking facilities... 7. Take the left route. After passing through two more gates take the next left path. You should end up in the left-most part of the map. Near the gray colored rock wall you will find the EX ICON. D. LLOYDS LABORATORY: PILLAR ROOMS After fighting through the city on Air's Cliff, LLOYD finally lets you into his firery death trap... 8. In the first room with the giant crushing and retracting pillars, destroy all enemies and fly to the bottom of the room. Look in one of the corners on the wall opposite the door. 9. There's another one in this room in the other corner. 10. In the third pillar room, destroy all enemies and fly to the bottom of the room. The EX ICON is opposite the exit. 11. During your fight with Lloyd, while the lights are still on, fly to the bottom of the room. It will be near one of the corners. E. UNDERGROUND TUNNEL After leading the LEV's through the desert to the crevice, this is the downward path to AUMANN... 12. In the second room there is a small enclosed area on the bottom of the room. Fly into it to get another EX ICON. 13. Upon entering the third room, you will see a black metal beam that extends from wall to wall. Destroy it to reveal another ICON close to the wall. 14. In the second half of this stage (after the cutscene) you will find one on top of the vertical pillar in the middle of the third room. 15. After leaving the third room, fly downwards to find an EX ICON between the two doors blocked by red lasers. F. PHOBOS After defeating ANUBIS in the illuminated path, you land on PHOBOS and and ANUBIS follows soon after... 16. Once you regain control of JEHUTY, DO NOT fly towards ANUBIS. Instead, fly directly up to get the ICON in the sky. 17. Fly low in the area opposite ANUBIS. There is an ICON on the red metal area. 18. After approaching ANUBIS, a bunch of NEPHTIS clones start attacking. Destroy five to reveal an EX ICON in the area to the right of the glowing crack. ( I think you need to kill five, if not, just keep destroying them until one appears.) 19. Destroy another group of five ( I think...) to reveal another ICON in the same location. ...............................................................................
