    2. Introduction
    *******************************************************************************
    
    This a walkthrough and strategy guide for the Jak II game.  It picks up the
    story where Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy left off.  In Jak II, you
    receive missions from various characters in different locations inside of Haven
    City.  This city is very large with numerous sections.  The distance that must
    be traveled between the characters that give you the missions can be quite
    large (it's even sometimes a long distance to reach the mission's actual
    starting location).  This is perhaps the biggest difference you will notice
    from the first game.
    
    With any action-based game, there are difficult parts as well as some easy
    parts.  The goal of this guide is to help you accomplish each of the tasks and
    not to tell the story (that will come as you play the game).  Each mission will
    indicate when it is available to do, a description of what you must do and go
    in the mission, a strategy for how to complete portions of it and possibly some
    tips that can be used to make the mission easier.  The strategy provided for
    each mission or objective is only ONE way it can be done, there can be many.
    It is recommended that a mission be attempted before reading the strategy for
    it.  You may find that the way you completed the mission is the same or is
    completely different.  Bear in mind that there is no right or wrong way to
    complete a mission.  The guide is only meant as an aid.

    4.2 Map
    *******************************************************************************
    
    The part of the city you are currently in is displayed on a map in the lower
    right corner of the screen.  This map display will rotate based on the
    direction being faced.  The green arrow on the map represents your current
    location and the direction you are facing.  The small red dots indicate Krimzon
    Guards patrolling on foot.  Each red dot also has a red triangle that indicates
    the guard's field of vision.  The large red dots indicate Krimzon Guards
    patrolling in hover vehicles (known as Hellcat Cruisers).  Various icons will
    also appear on the map.  These show the location of a character that has a
    mission available to do.  A large, blinking green dot shows the location of an
    object or destination to be reached while doing a mission (although not all
    objects and destinations will have one of these).  There may also have a yellow
    column of light in the city at the location.  A small, non-blinking green dot
    represents the location of an Underground mission screen (refer to the
    Underground Missions section).  When a Krimzon Guard alert occurs, the on-
    screen map will flash in red.  The map display will return to normal after the
    alert is over.  Once the city is exited or a building is entered while doing a
    mission, this map is no longer displayed.
    
    The Options Ring also has a Show Map option.  The entire area you are in is
    displayed on this map.  This map has the same indicators for your current
    location and the location of an object or destination to be reached as the city
    map.  This map is also color-coded.  If a section has not yet been traveled, it
    will appear in light blue on the map; otherwise, it will be tan, white or
    black.
    
    The mission descriptions will use left and right indications.  These are in
    reference to the direction being faced when entering the area.  For clarity,
    some directions will include a compass heading (i.e., north, south, etc.).
    These refer to the area's map on the Show Map option from the Options ring
    using the standard compass directions where north is the top of the map.
    
    Like any city, Haven City has distinct areas.  Some of the mission descriptions
    refer to a specific area.  The city has the following areas as seen on the Show
    Map option from the Options ring:
    
    Palace  Large structure in the center with the large red emblem
           - Connects to the west and east bazaars, Mar's Tomb and the business
             district
    Fortress  Large structure northeast of the palace with a smaller red emblem
             - Connects to the north slums
    Mar's Tomb  Square structure south of the palace
               - Characterized by square structure with a statue and flame on
                 each corner and surrounded by a moat of shallow water
               - Connects to the palace and port

    4.5 Gunpod
    *******************************************************************************
    
    When a gunpod is entered, its targeting display is shown.  The arrow in the
    gunpod's display will indicate the location of the enemies (no arrow indicates
    no enemies) and will indicate how close the enemy is (green indicates far away,
    red indicates very close).  The gunpod's display also includes a green circle
    with 16 sections indicating the damage level.  Sections will be removed when
    the gunpod takes damage.  Once all of the sections are gone, the gunpod will be
    destroyed.  Inside of the damage indicator in the gunpod's display is a yellow
    and red circle indicating the gunpod's temperature.  As the gunpod is fired,
    its temperature will increase and the yellow and then red part of the indicator
    will fill up.  When the gun is not being fired, the indicator will empty.  If
    the entire heat indicator fills up, the gun will be inoperable until the
    indicator is completely empty.

    with the Titan Suit will have a red, circular targeting symbol on them.  The
    Titan Suit has a damage meter displayed on the screen.  Some enemies will jump
    on and begin damaging the suit.  Repeatedly jumping will cause them to fall off
    so they can be destroyed.
    
    *******************************************************************************
    4.7 General Tips and Strategies
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Here are some general tips and strategies to use while playing the game:
    
    - Stay low in the hover vehicle, especially when being pursued by the Krimzon
    Guards to make it easier to avoid other hover vehicles.
    
    - Reaching a mission starting point will cancel a Krimzon Guard alert.
    
    - Using the right analog stick to change the view is a good way to gauge the
    distance needed to jump or to keep enemies in sight.
    
    - If you die when traveling back to the city from the mission's end save point,
    all of the killed enemies will reappear in the area.  For this reason, it is
    recommended that a manual save be performed once the city is reached.
    
    - When swinging on a pole, jump off when the rotation is in the upward
    direction.
    
    - When swinging on a pole and jumping off, additional height can be achieved by
    doing a double jump.
    
    - Full health will be restored if the mission is restarted or the game
    reloaded.  However, the amount of ammunition being carried will not be reset to
    full if the mission is restarted.
    
    - When possible, make sure the full amount of ammunition is being carried
    before starting a mission.  The gun range (available after the 'Beat Scatter
    Gun Course' mission) will contain Krimzon Guard crates containing ammunition
    for each of the weapons currently available.
    
    - A musical tone can be heard when near an enemy.  Listen for the tone to help
    determine if an enemy is close by (e.g., approaching from the rear, around a
    corner, etc.).

    5. Storyline Missions Walkthrough
    *******************************************************************************
    
    The mission description will primarily indicate the path to take through the
    mission and what tasks need to be accomplished.  Since each mission contains
    numerous enemies to be defeated, this guide will only reference specific ones
    if required for the objective or for clarity.  Unless otherwise stated, all
    enemies that are encountered need to be killed using one of Jak's moves or
    weapons.
    
    As you proceed through the missions, there will be special items to collect.
    Some items appear after defeating a particular enemy.  If a special item is
    encountered or will appear after an enemy is killed, the description will
    include a number in brackets ([]).  This number indicates how many of the
    objects should have already been found.  For example, [4,5] would indicate the
    objects are the fourth and fifth found on the mission.  These numbers represent
    the number of objects found on the mission, not the total for the game so far.
    Each mission also includes a "New Objects Obtained" that will list the total
    number of each object that is available during the mission.
    
    *******************************************************************************
    5.1 Jak
    *******************************************************************************
    
    These missions are started from any location after completing a certain
    mission.
    
    *******************************************************************************
    5.1.1 'Escape from Fortress'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: At the start of a new game.
    
    Description: Go to the crates on the left (east) side of the room and jump to
    the ledge.  A Precursor Orb [1] is located at the far left end of the ledge.
    Go through the door and follow the tunnel to the lighted room where the prison
    escape in progress message will be heard.  A Precursor Orb [2] is on the top of
    the shelves to the right of the entrance (use a double jump to reach it).  Use
    the crates on the left to jump to the ledge leading to the doorway to the room
    with raised platforms.  Jump across each raised platform to the moving platform
    and then jump left to the stationary ledge.  Do a high jump to the next ledge,
    follow the ledge to the moving platform and proceed across.  A Precursor Orb
    [3] is on top of the control panel in the corner (use a high jump to reach it).
    Continue to the edge of the ledge and use the pole to reach the upper ledge.
    Once you reach the sliding platform, turn left and jump to the next area.
    After defeating the two Krimzon Guards in this area, proceed to the gap where
    you will be instructed on how to perform a long jump.  Instead of jumping the
    gap, jump down to find a Precursor Orb [4].  After retrieving the Orb, use the
    crates to jump back up to the level and then long jump across the gap.
    Continue to the area that has metal grating on the floor.  Once you enter into
    this area, Krimzon Guards will be shooting at you from underneath the floor.  A
    Precursor Orb [5] is behind the control panel on the right (north) wall after
    entering the area.  After exiting this area, dive attack to break the door and
    drop down to the lower floor.  A Precursor Orb [6] is behind the pole on the
    right after dropping into the area.  Follow the tunnel to the next room and
    dive attack the door to drop down to the slide into the water.  A Precursor Orb
    [7] is located in the alcove on the wall directly ahead (west) and a Precursor
    Orb [8] is in the water behind the Krimzon Guard crates near the left (south)
    wall.  Once both Orbs are obtained, jump on the crates next to the right
    (north) wall to reach the fortress exit.
    
    Strategy: Continually move and jump while going through the area with the
    grated floor to avoid being shot by the Krimzon Guards.
    
    New Objects Obtained: 8 Precursor Orbs
    
    *******************************************************************************
    5.1.2 'Protect Kor and Kid'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Escape from Fortress' mission.
    
    Description: Walk down the street to talk with Kor.  Once the cinematic is
    over, protect Kor and the kid from the attacking Krimzon Guards (approximately
    12).  After defeating the first 3 Krimzon Guards, Jak will turn into Dark Jak
    and then return to normal once all of the Krimzon Guards have been defeated.
    
    Strategy: Continually spin kick to not allow guards enough time to fire their
    weapons.
    
    New Objects Obtained: None
    
    *******************************************************************************
    5.1.3 'Ride Elevator Up to Palace'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Turn on 5 Power Switches' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the elevator icon indicating the entrance to the palace.
    Get on the elevator and go to the top.  A Precursor Orb [1] is located along
    the back wall when the elevator reaches the top (use a high jump to reach it).
    Go through the door and jump down the ledges to the pipe with the rotating
    electrical rods.  Travel across the pipe until reaching the section with red
    heat tiles.  Jump to the ledge on the left of the pipe and use the two poles to
    reach the next ledge.  Jump back up to the top of the pipe and continue to the
    next set of heat tiles.  Jump to the ledge to the right of the pipe and then
    jump across to the next ledge.  Jump back up to the top of the pipe.  A
    Precursor Orb [2] is on the ledge on the pipe.  As soon as the ledge is
    touched, a turret will begin to fire.  Avoid the turret fire and move toward
    it.  Destroy it with a weapon, punch or spin kick when reaching it.  Once it is
    destroyed, continue across the pipe until reaching the section with the
    rotating spikes.  Jump across the pipe sections to the next ledge.  Upon
    reaching this ledge, another turret will begin firing.  After destroying the
    turret, another rotating electrical rod section will be encountered.  Jump to
    the ledge to the right of the pipe and then jump down the ledges to past the
    electrical rods.  CAUTION!  The ledge immediately before the electrical rods
    will collapse once stepped on.  After passing the electrical rods, proceed
    under the pipe to the ledge on the other side.  CAUTION!  The ledge in the
    middle collapses once stepped on.  A Precursor Orb [3] is located on the ledge
    in the middle.  Once across, use the pole to jump to the next ledge and then
    jump to the top of the pipe.  Another section of rotating spikes will be
    encountered, followed immediately by a section of heat tiles.  After crossing
    the rotating spikes, jump to the ledge on the right of the heat tiles.  Move
    across the ledge and jump to the ledge in the center of the pipe.  Once this
    ledge is reached, two rotating machine turrets will begin firing.  Go across
    the ledge to pass the machine turrets (Note: These guns cannot be destroyed).
    Jump onto the ledge to the right and continue up the ledges to the top.
    
    Strategy: When crossing the electrical rod and spiked floor sections, watch the
    timing of the obstacles before attempt to cross.  When approaching the
    stationary turrets, keep running and jumping to avoid being hit by the shots.
    When approaching the rotating machine turrets, concentrate on jumping over the
    shots.  Only travel down the ledge immediately after jumping over a shot.
    
    Tip: When approaching the rotating machine guns, standing on the pipe in
    between the ledges is safe area from being hit.
    
    New Objects Obtained: 3 Precursor Orbs

    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Ride Elevator Up to Palace' mission.
    
    Description: After completing the 'Ride Elevator Up to Palace' mission, jump
    down the incline to the roof.  Baron Praxis will be in a machine and begin
    attacking you.  He will attack in three different areas with a different weapon
    in each area.  There are two gauges displayed in the lower right corner of the
    screen.  The small bar indicates his shield strength.  His shield is drained
    every time he shoots and when he is shot by the Blaster Gun.  When his shield
    is running low, he will move to the electrical field to recharge it.  When it
    is completely depleted, he will move to the next area.  The large bar indicates
    his overall health.  Once he has been defeated in each area, 1/3 of the bar
    will be removed.
    
    In the first area, he will attack with a laser cannon.  Once he has been shot
    enough times to deplete his shield, his damage indicator will turn yellow and
    he will move to the next area.  In the second area, he will attack by shooting
    dark eco bombs.  A red "marker" will appear on the ground to indicate where the
    bomb is going to land.  Once he has been shot enough times to deplete his
    shield, his damage indicator will turn red and he will move to the next area.
    In the third area, he will attack using two different means.  He will shoot
    fire "tornados" and use his machine to roll over you.  Once he has been
    defeated in the third area, climb up the slanted roof to the ledge.  Follow the
    ledge to a doorway.  A Precursor Orb [1] is located in front of the door.  Go
    through the door and into the room.  Proceed through the room to find the door
    to exit the palace.
    
    Strategy for first area: When possible, use the building for cover to avoid
    being shot.  If the building cannot be used, be sure to keep moving once he
    starts to shoot (and avoid jumping).  His laser cannon only shoots straight so
    when he is close, get to one side to allow numerous shots to be taken at him.
    When he is at a distance, try to get into a position where shots can be taken
    at him while running to avoid his shots.
    
    Strategy for second area: Watch the red markers indicating where the bombs are
    going to fall.  Once the last one has been shot, continually shoot at him until
    he starts shooting again.
    
    Strategy for third area: When he is getting ready to roll (when he covers the
    machine's cockpit), prepare to move out of the way.  Once he rolls by, quickly
    turn towards him and start shooting.
    
    Tip: Use the time that he is recharging to get the Blaster Gun Ammo from the
    Krimzon Guard crates if needed.  These crates will reappear after his next
    attack.
    
    Tip: Use the right analog stick to change the view to always keep the Baron in
    sight.
    
    Tip: A good time to shoot at him is when he is moving to a new location in the
    current area.
    
    Tip: In the third area, there is a health pack located in the corner
    (southwest) of the roof.

    5.1.5.1 'Pass the First Test of Manhood'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Use Items in No Man's Canyon' mission.
    
    Description: From the shallow water in Mar's tomb, jump to the left (east)
    platform and go through the door.  Follow the tunnel to the room with the dark
    eco lake.  Jump across the four columns with spiked flooring to the ledge.
    Once on the ledge, use the pole to jump to the next higher ledge.  Proceed
    around the ledge to the moving vertical pole and moving block.  Jump onto the
    pole and then on the moving block.  Jump off the moving block to the stationary
    ledge.  At the ledge edge, jump onto the moving horizontal pole and then to the
    ledge.  Follow the ledge around to the small elevator (brown squares on floor).
    When at the bottom, jump onto the ledge.  Process across the ledge and walk
    over the switch (square on floor with a design).  The switch will cause the
    four columns that were jumped across to begin moving (the spikes will now be
    permanently retracted).  Jump to the first column.  A Precursor Orb [1] is in
    an alcove behind the column (left (west) of the ledge just jumped from).
    Double jump across each of the moving columns to the far ledge.  Use the
    vertical moving poles on the left to reach the next ledge.  Proceed around the
    ledge to the horizontal moving poles.  Use the poles to reach the next ledge
    and second switch.  After walking over the switch, walk to the edge to ride the
    small elevator to the bottom.  Jump to the ledge and go to the right (east).
    Just after passing the column, jump down the stairs to the left.  After
    approaching the large rock, a cinematic will be seen and you will be
    controlling Daxter.  The rock will begin rolling and Daxter must run to avoid
    being crushed.  While running, gaps will appear that requiring jumping over.
    At the bottom of the tunnel, a cinematic will be seen where the rock explodes
    revealing a Black Widow.  Continue running through the tunnel, jumping over
    gaps and enemies, until reaching the spider web.  Jump onto the first and then
    the second spider web.  Jump to the narrow ledge and run up the ledge to the
    next web.  Jump onto the web and then to the next narrow ledge.  Go around the
    ledge and jump to the next web.  Jump to the final web and then the top ledge.
    Run down the tunnel and jump over the gap to a ledge.  Continue to the edge and
    jump to the moving column.  Jump from the moving column to the next ledge.
    Continue running down the tunnel and at the end, the door will close behind
    Daxter trapping the Black Widow.  You will be controlling Jak once again.
    Proceed through the tunnel to the room with columns.  Use the columns to jump
    to the ledge on the left and then jump to the upper ledge.  Jump to the
    vertical moving pole and then to the moving block.  Jump off the block onto the
    vertical moving pole.  Jump off the pole to the next ledge.  Go across the
    ledge and jump to the vertical moving pole.  Jump from the vertical pole to the
    horizontal moving pole.  Jump from the horizontal pole to the diagonal moving
    pole.  Jump from the pole to the first moving block.  Jump to the second moving
    block and then to the ledge above.  Use the steps to jump to the top ledge.
    Jump to the horizontal moving pole and then to the first moving block.  Jump to
    the second moving block and then to the horizontal moving pole.  Jump to the
    final moving block and then onto the ledge.  Follow the tunnel to the button
    and dive attack it.
    
    Strategy: When crossing the spiked flooring, jump to the next column as soon as
    the clicking sound is heard indicating the spikes are changing.  At the
    vertical moving pole and block, once on the pole, wait until it is at the top
    and the ledge is extended before jumping.  At the horizontal moving pole, wait
    to jump off until the swing's rotation is directed up.  At the vertical moving
    pole, jump to the first and wait until it is higher than the second one.  Jump
    to the second one at the high point of the rotation.  At the horizontal pole,
    jump onto the first pole and jump off when it reaches the far left.  When
    Daxter is being chased by the rock and spider, do not attempt to kill the Baby
    Spiders (simply jump over them).  When jumping up the webs, aim for the left of
    the yellow arrow above the ledges.  When running up the ledge, jump to the next
    web as soon as the top of the incline is reached.  At the vertical moving pole
    and block after the chase, jump off the pole when it is at the highest point.
    Quickly run across the block and jump to the next vertical moving pole.  Jump
    off this pole when it reaches the top.  At the next vertical moving pole, jump
    to the pole when it is in the middle and the horizontal pole is approaching.
    Jump to the diagonal pole when the horizontal pole is to the far right and the
    diagonal pole is at the bottom.  Jump off the diagonal pole when it is at the
    top and quickly jump off the block to the ledge.  At the next horizontal moving
    pole, jump to the moving block when the pole is at the left.  Jump to the next
    moving block when the first block begins retracting.

    5.1.5.2 'Pass the Second Test of Manhood'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Use Items in No Man's Canyon' mission.
    
    Description: From the shallow water in Mar's tomb, jump to the right (west)
    platform and go through the door.  Jump up the ledges and go through the door
    into the next room.  Touch the switch in the middle of the room (square on
    floor with a design).  15 beetles will drop from the ceiling, 3 with red on
    their stomachs.  Observe which ones have the red stomachs.  When they flip
    over, locate and punch or spin kick the beetles with the red stomachs.  You
    will lose health for each incorrect guess.  Once the correct beetles have been
    found, a door will open.  Go through the door until coming to a pool of water
    with a barricade in the middle.  The pool is occasionally electrified.  Proceed
    across the pool and under the barricade to reach the ledge on the other side.
    Go across the ledge to the next pool of water.  This pool of water has no
    barricade, but the electricity is off for a shorter amount of time.  Once
    across the water, proceed into the next room to find a button.  When the button
    is pressed, colored tiles will appear.  Certain tiles will be lit and a tone
    specific to the color played.  These tiles indicate the only path across.  If a
    wrong tile is touched, the remaining tiles will fall away.  Once across, step
    on the button to reveal the second set of colored tiles.  Once across, go down
    the tunnel to another pool of water.  The pool has a longer distance.  After
    crossing the pool, enter the next room and touch the switch in the middle of
    the floor.  20 beetles will drop the ceiling and again the 3 with red stomachs
    must be found.  After finding the beetles, proceed through the newly opened
    door to another pool of water.  Once across, go through the door and step on
    the button to reveal colored tiles.  After crossing the first set, step on the
    button to reveal the second set.  After crossing the second set, step on the
    button to reveal the third set.  After crossing the third set, go through the
    door and go around the corner to find another pool of water.  This pool of
    water curves to the right and has a ledge at the corner.  After crossing the
    pool, proceed to the room with the 12 objects protruding from the floor.  When
    punched or spin kicked, each object makes a distinctive sound.  When two
    objects with the same sound are hit in succession, they will be lowered into
    the floor.  Once all 12 objects are lowered, a door will be opened.  Proceed
    through the door and dive attack the button.
    
    Strategy for Beetle Puzzles:  The beetles with the red stomachs stay in the
    same general area.  When dropped from the ceiling, keep track of at least 1 or
    2 of them.  The third one may have to be guessed, but should be able to be
    found in 1-2 attempts.
    
    Strategy for first pool of water: Watch the timing of how long the electricity
    is on and off.  When it is about to turn off, jump as far as possible toward
    the barricade.  Quickly swim under and once on the other side, jump to the
    ledge before the electricity turns on.
    
    Strategy for second pool of water: Watch the timing of how long the electricity
    is on and off.  When it is about to turn off, jump as far as possible as
    quickly swim until just before electricity should come back on.  At that
    moment, the ledge should be within range to double jump to.
    
    Strategy for third pool of water: Watch the timing of how long the electricity
    is on and off.  When it is about to turn off, jump as far as possible and while
    in the air, get onto the Jet-Board.  Ride the Jet-Board to just before
    electricity should come on.  At that moment, simultaneously double jump and get
    off the Jet-Board to reach the ledge.
    
    Strategy for fourth (curved) pool of water: Use the same strategy as the third
    pool of water to reach the ledge at the corner and then the end of the pool.
    
    Color Tile Solutions  The number of rows is based on the tile where Jak is
    standing.  The row direction is based on the direction Jak faced when starting.
    The color direction is in reference to Jak standing in the center of the
    starting ledge.
       Set 1: 2 rows forward, left red
              2 rows forward, right green
              1 row forward, left yellow
       Set 2: 1 row forward, right blue
              2 rows forward, left red
              1 row forward, right green
              2 rows forward, right yellow
       Set 3: 2 rows forward, right green
              2 rows forward, right green
              1 row behind, center yellow
              same row, left yellow
       Set 4: 2 rows forward, left yellow
              2 rows forward, center green
              1 row forward, left red
              same row, center red
              same row, right blue
       Set 5: 2 rows forward, center red
              2 rows forward, center red
              1 row forward, right green
              1 row behind, right red
              1 row behind, far right green
              2 rows forward, far right yellow
    
    Tip: By continually standing on the button to display the colored tiles, the
    path across will be continuously repeated.
    
    Tip: The colored tile pattern can also be followed by jumping on the first tile
    as soon as it lights up and then jumping to the other tiles when they are lit.

    5.1.6 'Defeat Barron in Mar's Tomb'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Pass the First Test of Manhood' and 'Pass
    the Second Test of Manhood' missions.
    
    Description: Baron Praxis will be in a spider-like machine and begin attacking.
    He will attack in three different stages.  There is a health gauge displayed in
    the lower right corner of the screen.  Once he has been hit 4 times, 1/3 of the
    bar will be removed and he will move to the next stage.
    
    In the first stage, he will attack by throwing mechanical, electrical spiders
    on the platform.  After each of them has been destroyed, he will throw numerous
    bombs onto the platform.  Each of these bombs will detonate in approximately 10
    seconds after reaching the platform.  A bomb is getting ready to explode when
    the beeping sound increases and the lights on it begin to flash faster.  Punch
    these bombs toward the Baron to cause damage (they will immediately explode
    upon impact).  He will repeat this attack pattern until being hit with 4 bombs,
    causing his health gauge to change to yellow.  In the second stage, he will
    throw spiders, then drop below the platform, quickly rise up, and rapidly shoot
    his laser guns.  He will then throw the bombs onto the platform.  He will
    repeat this attack pattern until being hit with 4 bombs, causing his health
    gauge to change to red.  In the final stage, he will shoot the precursor stone
    to destroy sections of the platform, drop below the platform, rise up to shoot
    his laser guns and then throw the bombs.  He will repeat this attack pattern
    until being hit with 4 bombs.  Once he has been defeated, go across the water
    to the ramp leading to the tomb's exit.
    
    Strategy for first stage: When the mission begins, start running to one side of
    the platform.  Use the Scatter Gun to destroy the mechanical spiders.  Turn
    around, begin running toward the center, and destroy the remaining mechanical
    spiders.  Once the bombs land on the platform, punch as many as possible toward
    the Baron before they explode.
    
    Strategy for second stage: Run to the far left or right side as the spiders are
    being shot.  Stand behind one of the pillars and shoot the spiders that
    approach.  When the Baron comes up from underneath the platform, the pillar
    will provide cover (until it is destroyed).  As soon as he stops firing, run
    towards the center of the platform to the next pillar.  Once the bombs land on
    the platform, punch them towards the Baron.
    
    Strategy for the third stage: When the precursor stone begins to glow, he is
    getting ready to fire it.  When it does, be sure to not be near it.  When the
    Baron drops below the platform, stand behind one of the pillars.  As soon as he
    stops firing, he will launch only a few bombs.  Quickly run to one of the bombs
    and punch it toward him.  Since he is always close the platform in this stage,
    the angle to hit him will be small.
    
    Tip: It is easier to punch the bombs at the Baron from the center area of the
    platform than from the far left or right side.
    
    Tip: The remaining bombs on the platform will immediately explode when he is
    hit for the fourth time.

    5.1.7 'Explore Palace'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Win Class 1 Race at Stadium' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the elevator icon indicating the entrance to the palace.
    Once inside, go pass the control panels on the left to the doorway.  Get on the
    elevator and go to the top.  Go through the door into the next room and go
    through the door on the left to enter the throne room.  A cinematic will be
    seen where Ashelin give you a black security pass.  After the cinematic, turn
    around and head toward the large door.  On the left (northeast) is a small
    passageway.  Follow the passage to the end and jump down to the lower level.
    Go into the next area and use the poles to swing and jump to the next ledge.
    Proceed over the collapsible platforms to the next ledge.  On the ledge will be
    several Krimzon Guards waiting.  After killing the Krimzon Guards, go across
    two more collapsible platforms to the next ledge.  On the right is a
    continuously firing laser that shoots across the platform.  Jump over the shot
    and continue across the platform.  At the end of the platform, jump up to the
    next platform where there will be more Krimzon Guards waiting.  Follow the
    platform and use the ledges to jump up to the next platform.  On the left
    (east) side of the upper platform is a cracked window.  Use a gun and shoot the
    window to break it.  Get on the Jet-Board and grind across the window ledge.
    At the end of the window ledge, jump onto the next platform and get off the
    Jet-Board.  Jump across collapsible platforms to the next ledge.  Proceed
    through the door and jump down into the meeting room.  In the adjoining room is
    another continuously firing laser that shoots into the meeting room.  Once the
    laser is not firing into the room, run through the door and turn left.
    Continue to the end and turn left into the next room.  At the edge of the floor
    is a series of disconnected pipes.  Get on the Jet-Board and grind along the
    first pipe.  At the end, jump to the next pipe and grind across.  Repeat the
    same thing for the last pipe and jump to the ledge.  Jump up the ledges to the
    right to find more waiting Krimzon Guards.  Shoot the center of the yellow,
    circular hanging object (if not shot during the fight with the Krimzon Guards).
    Get on the Jet-Board, jump onto the yellow circular object and grind around to
    the next ledge.  Proceed down the steps to the lower platform to find another
    continuously shooting laser.  Jump over the laser shots or walk around the back
    of it to cross the platform.  After passing the laser, several Krimzon Guards
    will be waiting around the corner in ambush.  Continue along the platform to
    another set of collapsible platforms.  Jump across them to the ledge.  Use a
    gun to shoot the glass blocking the path.  Continue across the ledge and double
    jump across the large gap to reach the next ledge.  Jump across the final set
    of collapsible platforms and go out the door to reach the elevator.  Once at
    the bottom, go past the control panels to the door to exit to the city.
    
    Strategy: When jumping over the continuously firing laser shots, wait until the
    shots are moving away and then walk behind them.  Once the shots begin to move
    towards you, jump over them and continue.  When jumping on the ledge after
    grinding on the window ledge and yellow circular object, be sure to direct the
    jump towards the ledge and jump early enough to land on it (be careful to not
    go too far before jumping).  Otherwise, the ledge will be missed and you will
    fall.  Before grinding the yellow circular object, be sure to shoot all the
    Krimzon Guards on the distant platform first.  While grinding it, concentrate
    on the grinding direction since it is very easy to fall off.
    
    Tip: The area behind the tables in the meeting room is safe from being hit by
    the laser gun.

    5.1.8 'Beat Krew in Weapons Lab'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Get Heart of Mar in Weapons Lab' mission.
    (Note: This mission begins immediately after completion of the 'Get Heart of
    Mar in Weapons Lab' mission.)
    
    Description: When the elevator reaches the top, the damage inflicted by a
    weapon is increased.  Numerous Krew Clones will begin to attack.  These clones
    are slow moving.  Once they have all been destroyed, Krew will attack by firing
    his lasers multiple times rapidly.  Once he has been hit several times, Krew's
    health gauge will change to yellow and he will retreat.  The Krew Clones will
    attack again, but these clones move more quickly.  Once they have been
    destroyed, Krew will attack again.  When he has been hit several times, his
    health gauge will change to red and he will retreat.  The Krew Clones will
    attack one final time.  Once they have been destroyed, Krew will attack for the
    last time.  Once he has been destroyed, the mission is over.
    
    Strategy for Krew Clones: Stand in the entrance doorway leading to the roof.
    Equip the Scatter Gun and shoot any close by clone in the field of view.  When
    there is one clone remaining, proceed out to the Krimzon Guard crates to
    collect any needed ammunition.  Return to the door and destroy the final clone.
    
    Strategy for Krew: Krew will attack from the right side (if you are standing in
    the doorway).  Equip the Blaster Gun and if there is a clear shot, shoot him
    before he stops moving to shoot.  As long as he is being shot, he will not be
    able to fire.  Try not to move too far away from the doorway.  If he does begin
    to shoot, avoid the shots until he stops and then fire back.  Once he has been
    hit 3 or 4 times, quickly return to the doorway and prepare for the next wave
    of Krew Clones.

    Available: After the completion of 'Check the Construction Site' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the red Air Train icon indicating the Air Train station.
    The Air Train will take you to Metal Head nest area.  Go along the path to the
    left (northwest) of the Air Train [1,2,3,4].  Continue into the area next to
    the large building [5].  A Precursor Orb [1] is on the top of a barrel on the
    top of the hill on the left (south) side of the area.  Next to the far
    (southwest) wall of the area is a valve.  Jump and spin kick the value to raise
    a platform to the left (northeast) of the Air Train.  Go to the raised platform
    and use it to jump to the ledge [6-11].  Travel across the ledge to the stone
    base of the wood structure.  Turn left (west), follow the path and go up the
    steps to the ledge [12,13,14,15].  Continue into the next area and follow the
    path on the left (southwest) to find Mar's gun.
    
    Strategy: Use the Scatter Gun against the Metal Head Mantis and the Blaster (or
    Vulcan Fury) Gun against the Metal Head Tarantulas.  Proceed into new areas
    slowly to force the enemies to appear and attack.  This gives more time to
    react.  Avoid letting the Metal Head Mantis get too close since their jumping
    makes them difficult to follow and will likely result in damage.
    
    Tip: There is a health pack next to the valve.

    back).  Jump down to the path between the stone columns on the left (southwest)
    side.  Follow the path to the large area [1-11].  A Precursor Orb [4] is on the
    small ledge above the dead trees in the right (west) corner of the area.  A
    Precursor Orb [5] is on top of the stones in the right (northwest) corner of
    the area.  Proceed up the hill.  A Precursor Orb [6] is located in the turret
    of the first tank on the right (north) side of the path up the hill.  Pass by
    the Beast and continue into the open area [12-20].  From the open area, go up
    the path to the right (east) and pass the second Beast [21-26].  At the top,
    turn left and go to the path.  Follow the path down the hill [27,28].  Continue
    along the path and pass the third Beast into the next area [29-36].  Follow the
    path up the hill to the flat area [37-42].  Go between the pillars and proceed
    along the path up the next hill [43,44].  At the top, jump onto the higher
    ledge.  Continue around the ledge to the nest entrance.  Proceed through the
    nest's entrance [45-55].  Once inside, follow the path on the right (south) to
    the flat area and proceed into the tunnel directly ahead.
    
    Strategy: Use the Scatter Gun against the Metal Head Mantis and the Blaster (or
    Vulcan Fury) Gun against the Metal Head Tarantulas.  Proceed into new areas
    slowly to force the enemies to appear and attack.  This gives more time to
    react.  Avoid letting the Metal Head Mantis get too close since their jumping
    makes them difficult to follow and will likely result in damage.  To get past
    the Beasts, start by following behind them.  If other enemies start to appear,
    retreat away from the Beast and kill the enemies before the Beast turns and
    approaches.  Once their electricity is off, quickly run past.  If other enemies
    start to appear, continuing running until past the Beast and use a weapon to
    shoot any enemies in your path.
    
    Tip: There is a health pack on the left (east) side of the large area.
    
    Tip: There is a health pack at the bottom of the hill leading to the dark eco
    pools.
    
    Tip: There is a health pack between the pillars at the top of the hill
    following the dark eco pools.

    5.1.11 'Destroy Metal Kor at Nest'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Attack the Metal Head Nest' mission.
    (Note: This mission begins immediately after completion of the 'Attack the
    Metal Head Nest' mission.)
    
    Description: Metal Kor will attack in three different stages.  There is a
    health gauge displayed in the lower right corner of the screen.  Once he has
    been hit enough times, 1/3 of the bar will be removed and he will move to the
    next stage.
    
    In the first stage, he will attack by throwing eggs on the platform.  After
    several seconds, the egg will hatch into a Metal Head Scorpion.  He will also
    shoot a burst of dark eco.  He is preparing to shoot when his face turns white
    and you hear a high-pitched tone.  Each time he is shot by a weapon, a small
    part of the health gauge will be removed.  Once he has been hit enough times,
    the health gauge will turn to yellow.  In the second stage, Metal Head Strafes
    will also attack and Kor will shoot two bursts of dark eco at a time.  After
    being hit a sufficient number of times, the health gauge will turn to red.  In
    the third stage, Kor will drop down from the ceiling to the platform.  He will
    attack by shooting three bursts of dark eco and sending out a shockwave.  He
    will also use his claws and tail to swipe if close by.  After being shot enough
    times, he will be destroyed.
    
    Strategy for first and second stages: Continually run and shoot the eggs and
    Metal Head Scorpions.  Try to shoot the eggs before they hatch.  Attempt to
    stay behind Kor as much as possible since this will prevent him from shooting
    the dark eco.  When the immediate area is clear, stop and fire several shots at
    him with the Blaster Gun.  If he starts preparing to fire the dark eco,
    immediately begin running to make the shots miss.  Only fire at Kor when there
    is no other enemies close by.
    
    Strategy for third stage: Use the dark bomb ability if it is acquired and Dark
    Jak is available.  This will cause approximately half of the remaining health
    bar to be removed.  Since Kor can move faster than Jak can run, try to stay on
    the opposite side of the hole in the center as Kor.  If he is getting too
    close, use the Jet-Board to quickly get to the opposite side.  Shoot at him
    with the Blaster Gun in between his attacks and when at a substantial distance
    from him.
    
    Tip: Only the Blaster Gun ammunition will be in the Krimzon Guard crates in the
    nest.
    
    Tip: An auto-save occurs at the beginning of the third stage.  If you die
    during this stage, any ammunition used in the other stages cannot be
    replenished (other than the Blaster Gun's).  If the Blaster Gun ammunition is
    low when starting the first stage, collect the necessary ammunition from the
    Krimzon Guard crates and then do a manual save.  If you die during stage one or
    two, reload the saved game.
    
    Tip: Do NOT worry about collecting the Metal Head Skull Gems dropped by the
    Metal Head Scorpions in the nest.

    5.2.2 'Find Pumping Station Valve'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Retrieve Banner from Dead Town' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the green pipe icon indicating the entrance to the
    pumping station.  Once inside, kill the three Metal Head Swipers and retrieve
    their Metal Head Skull Gems [1,2,3].  A Precursor Orb [1] is in the water on
    the left (west) side of the beach.  A Precursor Orb [2] is in the corner behind
    the structure with the moving platforms in front.  Use a moving platform to
    reach the upper ledge.  Jump to the next ledge to the right and at the end of
    the ledge is a pipe containing a Precursor Orb [3].  After retrieving the Orb,
    you will need to jump down to the beach and retrace the path to the pipe.  Jump
    onto the pipe and follow it to the end.  Jump to the next ledge and kill all of
    the enemies on it.  Go across the rotating pipe [4].  Go across the pipe with
    the electrical field, jump over the electrical field and jump onto the next
    ledge [5].  Jump onto the moving platform on the right and jump onto the next
    ledge.  Follow the ledge to the edge with the pipe that has a double electrical
    field [6].  Travel across the pipe with the double electrical field, jump over
    the electrical field and jump onto the next ledge.  Once across, jump down to
    the next ledge [7,8].  Proceed across each of the ledges until reaching the
    rotating pipe.  Move across the pipe and jump onto each ledge until reaching
    the metal platform.  Instead of going up the ramp, jump off the metal platform
    to the left (east) onto the rotating platforms.  Jump down the platform and
    rocks to reach the beach.  Go to the south side of the beach and swim south
    towards the bridge.  A Precursor Orb [4] is in the water between the bridge and
    the cliff.  Go back to the beach and follow it to the right (east) until
    reaching the rotating pipe.  A Precursor Orb [5] is located behind the left
    (east) cliff connected to the rotating pipe.  Swim to the closest island with a
    windmill.  A Precursor Orb [6] is on a ledge near the top.  Swim back to the
    beach and go to the structure with the moving platforms in front.  Repeat the
    same travel directions until reaching the metal ramp.  Go up the metal ramp and
    travel along the ledge until reaching the water valve [9,10].
    
    Strategy: Wait to jump onto a rotating pipe until just after if finishes
    rotating.  Jump off (or straight up if not near the end) as soon as the
    rotating "sound" begins.  Wait to jump over the electrical fields on the pipes
    until they are moving towards Jak.

    5.2.3 'Blow Up Ammo at Fortress'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Find Pumping Station Valve' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the red castle icon indicating the fortress entrance.
    Once inside, turn left and go through the doorway.  The security tank will be
    activated once this occurs.  Jump to the ledge and follow it around while
    avoiding the tank fire.  Once the tank breaks through the door, you will need
    to jump over the red laser beams.  If one of the beams is touched, an auto-aim
    gun will shoot you.  After the laser beams have been passed, jump to the top of
    the crates and use the pole to swing to the upper ledge.  Travel along the
    upper ledge to a large area with rotating platforms.  By this time, the tank
    will have broken through the wall and be firing from the lower level.  Jump to
    the rotating platform and break the tubes in the center to disable the
    electrical field.  Once both tubes have been broken, jump into the area that
    was previously protected by the electrical field.  In this area, you will have
    to jump across sliding platforms and then come to an area with spikes coming
    out of the floor.  Once you have crossed the last spiked floor, dive attack the
    door at the end of the corridor to drop to the lower level.  Go across the
    conveyor belt and jump across the moving platforms to the ledge.  Jump up the
    ledges to the next level and go across the conveyor through a door that leads
    to a large, open area.  Once you enter this area, you will receive a red
    security pass.  Once you pick up the pass, you need to force the security tank
    to shoot four of the ammunition stores (located next to the missile in the back
    of the area).  Once this occurs, you will have 10 seconds to get out before the
    missile explodes.
    
    Strategy: You can avoid being shot by the security tank by stopping in one
    place and then running just before the tank fires (when its red aiming symbol
    gets larger).  When attempting to get the tank to shoot the ammunition stores,
    use the control panel next to the missile for cover.  It is also useful to
    attempt to position Jak between the tank and several ammunition stores so that
    multiple ones will be hit at one time.

    5.2.4 'Make Delivery to Hip Hog Saloon'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Blow Up Ammo at Fortress' mission.
    
    Description: Take the hover vehicle outside of Torn's hideout to the Hip Hog
    Saloon (indicated by a glass icon).  Shortly after leaving the current section
    of the city, the Krimzon Guards will begin chasing.  They will set up two
    roadblocks on the route to the bar.  If the hover vehicle is destroyed, the
    mission is a failure.  (Note: Since you a delivering a "package" to Krew, you
    CANNOT transfer to a different hover vehicle if it becomes too damaged.)  Once
    the hover vehicle is delivered, you will receive the Scatter Gun.
    
    Strategy: Minimize the amount of damage the zoomer receives before the Krimzon
    Guards begin their pursuit since taking damage is inevitable during the chase.
    This will increase the possibility of arriving at the destination before the
    hover vehicle is destroyed.  Use the on-screen map to see when the roadblock is
    approaching and fly underneath the Krimzon Guards' hover vehicles.

    Description: Travel to the icon indicating the gun range entrance.  Obtain a
    score of at least 3000 points on the scatter gun course.
    
    Strategy: Shoot the targets as quickly as possible since this results in a
    higher point value.  Be careful not to hit non-enemy targets since this will
    deduct points from your score.

    Available: After the completion of 'Beat Blaster Gun Course' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the icon (located on the upper level pedestrian walkway)
    and enter the warp gate to reach the strip mine entrance.  After entering,
    proceed slowly along the path and kill the attacking enemies [1-6].  Move
    between the two hills and continue toward the conveyor belt [7-15].  Move to
    the right of the conveyor belt toward the support structure and then toward the
    elevated carts [16-20].  A Precursor Orb [1] is under the support structure to
    the right of the dark eco lake.  Return to the conveyor belt and move into the
    area to the left of it toward the large blue structure (eco well).  Upon
    reaching the blue structure, turn right and go down the path [21-30].  Go back
    to the conveyor belt, go down the path between the two hills and kill all the
    enemies that appear [31-37].  At the end of the path, turn right and proceed
    past the crates [38,39,40].  Continue toward the building and kill the enemies
    located in front [41,42,43,44].  Travel up the first conveyor belt [45].  A
    Precursor Orb [2] is in the corner of the platform at the top of the first
    conveyor belt.  Go up the next conveyor belt to the upper platform [46,47,48].
    Go to the edge of the platform and jump onto a moving crate.  Shoot the Metal
    Head Flyers above the carts [49,50,51].  Jump onto the ledge and dispose of the
    remaining enemies [52,53].  Approach the door on the right to locate Vin.
    
    Strategy: When confronted with many enemies at one time, use the dark bomb (if
    already acquired and Dark Jak is available) or the rapid-fire gun technique to
    quickly eliminate the enemies.
    
    Tip: In order to obtain all of the Metal Head Skull Gems, you may have to
    retrace your path to the entrance since the Metal Head Scorpions do not always
    immediately emerge from the sand when approaching.

    5.2.7 'Find Pumping Station Patrol'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Rescue Vin at Strip Mine' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the green pipe icon indicating the pumping station
    entrance.  Upon entering, use the obstacle for cover and shoot the Metal Head
    Crab [1].  Follow the beach to the right and go under the pipes.  Continue
    along the beach toward the three Metal Head Crabs [2,3,4].  Go along the beach
    to the right (north) and jump onto the rotating metal platforms.  Use the
    rotating metal platforms to reach the metal platform.  Use the rising platforms
    to reach the ledge above.  Proceed up to the top of the ledge [5,6,7,8].  Walk
    over to the hover vehicle next to the rock to see the cinematic introducing you
    to Ashelin.  After the cinematic, you and Ashelin need to kill all of the Metal
    Head enemies that attack [9,10,11,12,13].  If Ashelin's health meter runs out,
    the mission is a failure.  Once the mission is completed, Ashelin will give you
    a yellow security pass.
    
    Strategy: Shoot the Metal Head Crabs from a distance to remain out of their
    firing range.
    
    Tip: You must collect the Metal Head Skull Gems before reaching Ashelin's hover
    vehicle since they will be gone once the cinematic is over.

    5.2.8 'Shuttle Underground Fighters'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Find Lens in Mountain Temple', 'Find Gear
    in Mountain Temple', 'Find Shard in Mountain Temple' and 'Defeat Baron at
    Palace' missions.
    
    Description: Get into the hover vehicle outside of Torn's hideout.  The timer
    will start counting down from 1:00 minute.  Fly to the first fighter.  Once the
    fighter gets into the hover vehicle, the timer will reset to a random amount.
    The fighter will only get into the hover vehicle if it is in the low hover
    zone.  The Krimzon Guards will begin attacking from the ground, from hover
    vehicles and turrets throughout the city will be activated.  Fly the fighter to
    his safe house.  Repeat for the remaining three fighters.  If the timer reaches
    0:00 or the fighter is killed, the mission is a failure.
    
    Strategy: Once a fighter reaches the safe house, quickly change hover vehicles
    if there is currently a lot of damage (i.e., hover vehicle is on fire or smoke
    coming from it).  As soon as the fighter get in or out, quickly start moving to
    save time.  When approaching a fighter for pickup, be careful not to run him
    over since this will cost time while he is getting up (and may possible kill
    him).
    
    Tip: Only 2-seat hover vehicles can be used.  A fighter will not get into a 1-
    seater.

    Available: After the completion of 'Shuttle Underground Fighters' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the brown building icon indicating the entrance to Dead
    Town.  Once inside, travel along the path [1-4].  Turn left and continue along
    the path [5].  Use the wood ledges to jump to the stone ledge [6,7].  Continue
    across the ledge and jump down to the lower ledge [8].  Jump down to the ground
    and go toward the large, stone wall [9,10].  Jump across the stones in the
    water to the sand island [11-18].  Proceed up the incline and jump onto the
    stone ledge [19,20].  Travel around the ledge and use the wood steps to jump to
    the next ledge [21,22,23].  Go down the path between the pillars and kill the
    Metal Head Gunner [24].  Continue under the arch [25,26,27,28].  Turn left
    around the corner and kill the Metal Head Gunner on the ground level and on the
    stair [29,30].  Proceed up the stairs and go around the corner.  Continue
    through the archway [31,32,33,34].  Go through the pillar area and through the
    next archway.  Turn right and travel across the ledge [35-40].  At the end of
    the path, turn right at the corner [41,42].  At the end of the path, you will
    see a cinematic.  Once the cinematic is over, turn around and go back to the
    ledge.  Turn right and jump down to the island.  Follow the path to the Dead
    Town exit.
    
    Strategy: When approaching Metal Head Slingers, use the Vulcan Fury gun to kill
    them quickly before they begin to shoot. When approaching Metal Head Gunners,
    use the walls, pillars, etc. for cover.  When attacking, quickly begin shooting
    the Vulcan Fury gun before it can begin firing.
    
    Tip: If an enemy falls into the muddy water, they will be killed instantly.

    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Hunt Haven Forest Metal Heads' and 'Get
    Seal Piece at Dig' missions.
    
    Description: Locate and destroy five of the new Hellcat cruisers.  After the
    first Hellcat Cruiser is destroyed, a Krimzon Guard alert will occur.
    
    Strategy: Equip the Vulcan Fury gun, get into the hover vehicle outside of the
    hideout and locate the first Hellcat Cruiser.  Avoid starting a Krimzon Guard
    alert before reaching the vehicle.  Once found, approach it from the rear and
    begin shooting when directly behind it.  The Hellcat Cruisers will not fire
    back until fired on (even during a Krimzon Guard alert).
    
    Tip: Hiding from the Krimzon Guard long enough will cause the alert to be
    canceled (until the next Hellcat Cruiser is destroyed).

    5.2.11 'Rescue Friends at Fortress'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Defeat Baron in Mar's Tomb' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the red castle icon indicating the fortress entrance.
    Once inside, go up the steps to the right of the control panel and enter the
    tunnel.  After turning the corner to the left, a large area will be entered
    with numerous Krimzon Guards (regular, elite and Hover Guards).  In this area,
    there are 4 red buttons on the top of columns (2 on each side of the path).
    Each of these buttons must be dive attacked.  Follow the path into the next
    area and turn left.  In front of the electrical field is another button to be
    dive attacked.  Once all five buttons have been "pushed", the electrical field
    will be gone.  Proceed into the next area where there are rotating turrets with
    a laser beam.  If one of the beams is touched, an auto-aim gun will shoot you.
    Use the top of the turrets and the ledge on the left side to reach the ledge to
    the next area.  This area has a half-pipe with electrical coils traveling down
    it.  Travel along the pipe to the right (north) until seeing a ledge on the
    right (east).  Use the Jet-Board to jump up to the ledge.  At the edge of the
    ledge is a pipe, guarded by two more auto-aim turrets on each side.  Get on the
    Jet-Board and grind across the pipe to the next platform.  Continue across the
    platform and pass the machines.  Once you approach the machines, Krimzon Guards
    will be shooting at you from above the grated ceiling.  After passing the
    machines, proceed up the ramp to the next ledge.  Around the corner is a
    catwalk protected by two auto-aim turrets.  Go across the catwalk to the ledge.
    Jump across the gap and go through the door.  Travel right (west) around the
    ledge to the next room (recognize it?) and go towards the warp gate to see a
    cinematic.
    
    Strategy for area with Krimzon Guards: Before entering the area, equip the
    Blaster Gun.  Use the first corner for cover to kill the first Hover Guard and
    the Krimzon Guards on the three columns.  Move along the path until it turns
    right and quickly kill the two Hover Guards and the Krimzon Guard on the far
    column.  Quickly move along the path towards the door while continually firing
    (using the rapid fire technique when possible).  Another method is to use a
    "hit & retreat" tactic around the first section of the path to lure in the
    Krimzon Guard.  However, until some point is crossed in the path, Krimzon
    Guards will continue appearing.  This method requires killing a substantially
    greater number.
    
    Strategy for first set of turrets: Jump onto the first turret when it's laser
    beam is moving to the right (the higher turret's beam will also move to the
    right just before the lower one's).  When the laser beam for the turret
    directly ahead starts moving away, jump to the ledge on the left.  Jump over
    the beam when it approaches and then jump onto its turret.  Quickly jump onto
    the highest turret (whose beam should be pointing toward the far wall).  Jump
    onto the last turret and then onto the ledge.
    
    Strategy for half-pipe: After jumping into the pipe, go as far up to the left
    (west) as possible and as close as possible to the electrical coil ahead.  Once
    the coil passes the platform on the right, quickly get onto the Jet-Board, ride
    up to the top and jump onto the platform.  Be careful to not land too far onto
    the platform or you will be targeted and shot by the turrets in the next area.
    
    Strategy for second set of turrets: Go to the side of the ledge by the pipe
    (jumping over the laser beams as necessary).  Wait until the beams are crossed
    over the pipe and then begin to separate.  After jumping over the beams when
    they pass, quickly jump out and get on the Jet-Board.  Land on the pipe and
    grind across to the ledge.
    
    Strategy for third set of turrets: Stay behind the control panel on the right
    (north) side.  Move around the corner and then back behind the control panel.
    This will cause the Hover Guards to approach.  Kill the Hover Guards before
    attempting to cross the catwalk.  After the Hover Guards are gone, wait until
    the beams are crossed and begin to separate.  Once they are separated, run
    across the catwalk to the ledge.
    
    Tip: Once a Krimzon Guard stops moving, they will set briefly before firing.
    This allows an opportunity to fire on them.
    
    Tip: There is a health pack located on the starting ledge at the first set of
    turrets and on the ledge to the left at the first set of turrets.
    
    Tip: There is a health pack on the ledge near the control panel at the third
    set of turrets.
    
    Tip: The auto-aim turrets will only fire twice.  If targeted, quickly jump to
    try to avoid being shot.

    5.2.12 'Protect Hideout from Bombots'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Rescue Friends at Fortress' mission.
    
    Description: Locate and destroy the three bombots that are approaching Torn's
    hideout.  The bombots have a proximity defense system that will shoot anything
    that comes near it with a laser.  Use a weapon to destroy the bombot.  When it
    has taken heavy damage, it will start beeping which indicates it is about to
    explode.  Once the first bombot is fired at, a Krimzon Guard alert will start.
    If a bombot reaches the hideout, it will explode and the mission is a failure.
    
    Strategy: Equip the Vulcan Fury gun and get onto the hover vehicle outside of
    the hideout.  Travel to the closest south bombot first.  Stay outside of its
    weapon range and approach it from the rear.  Quickly move inside of its weapon
    range and fire at it.  Once it is destroyed, proceed to the next one that is in
    the same general area.  After destroying it, quickly proceed to the northern
    bombot and destroy it.

    5.4.1 'Protect Sig at Pumping Station'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Make Delivery to Hip Hog Saloon' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the green pipe icon indicating the pumping station
    entrance.  Follow Sig and kill the enemies in front of the rising platforms
    [1,2].  Use the moving platforms to reach the next ledge.  Sig will then
    destroy the tank blocking the path.  Proceed down the bridge and defeat the two
    Metal Head Goons [3,4].  Follow Sig to the end of the bridge and jump up to
    grab the next bridge section to lower it.  Sig will kill any enemies that
    appear while this is being done.  Cross the lowered bridge to the next metal
    ledge.  Sig will charge his weapon and you must kill any enemies that attack.
    If Sig is attacked by a creature or is hit with a shot from your weapon, he
    must restart the weapon charging.  After Sig destroys the Metal Head Crab on
    the cliff, follow him to the beach [5-9].  Sig will then charge his weapon to
    shoot the Metal Head Crab on the cliff and you will need to again kill any
    enemies that appear.  Once the Metal Head Crab is destroyed, follow Sig up the
    metal structure and kill the two Metal Head Goons on the bridge [10,11].  There
    is a Precursor Orb [1] in the water between the bridge and the cliff.  Jump
    onto the bridge to lower it while Sig defeats any enemies that attack.  Once
    the bridge is lowered, follow Sig to the end of the platform where he will
    charge his weapon for a third time.  Once the Metal Head Crab is destroyed,
    follow Sig to the beach [12,13,14].  Sig will charge for the fourth time and
    kill the Metal Head Crab on the structure near the pipe.  Once it is killed,
    follow Sig across the beach.  When you reach the pipe overhead, Sig's will have
    weapon difficulty and you will need to kill all the Metal Head Goons that
    appear [15-20].  Once the creatures are dead, follow Sig to the final weapon
    charging location.  Once the Metal Head Crab is destroyed, the mission is
    completed.  If at any time Sig's health meter runs out or you are trailing too
    far behind Sig, the mission is a failure.
    
    Strategy: Stand to the right of Sig at the first weapon charging location to
    kill the enemies as they jump onto the platform.  At the second location, stand
    to the left of Sig to defeat the enemies that attack from the water.  At the
    third point, position yourself to the left of Sig.  Be careful, as the
    creatures will attack from the front and rear.  Be sure to not get too close to
    Sig so that you do not accidentally hit him.  When reaching the fourth charging
    location, you will need to quickly gather the Metal Head Skull Gems before Sig
    begins charging his weapon.  Once he begins charging his weapon, do not worry
    about collecting the gems until after he shoots the Metal Head Crab.  Position
    Jak to the left of Sig as enemies will attack from the water both in front and
    behind.  At the final charging location, position Jak in front of Sig since the
    enemies will attack from the water in front.
    
    Tip: Staying slightly ahead of Sig will allow time to open the Krimzon Guard
    crates and take the object(s) inside.

    5.4.2 'Destroy Turrets in Sewer'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Protect Sig at Pumping Station' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the green sewer lid icon indicating the sewer entrance.
    Upon entering, walk over to the elevator that will take you to the bottom.
    Travel down the tunnel and step on the light pad to turn on the tunnel lights.
    Follow the narrow path leading to the tunnel with turret #1.  Either destroy
    the turret with a weapon, punch or spin kick.  After destroying the turret,
    jump across the pipes in the water and kill the Metal Head Brute behind the
    fence [1].  Jump across the pipes into the next tunnel and continue through the
    tunnel until reaching a light pad.  Step on the light pad to turn on the lights
    in the next room and kill the Metal Head Brutes in the room [2,3,4].  Continue
    through the tunnel until reaching the large area with turret #2.  After
    destroying the turret, continue through the tunnel and jump to the lower level.
    Step on the light pad to turn on the lights and kill the Metal Head Brutes in
    the area [5-12].  Use the ledge to jump to the next tunnel.  At the end of the
    tunnel is turret #3.  After the turret is destroyed, jump onto the ledge to the
    left of the turret's location to reach the next tunnel.  Step on the light pad
    in the tunnel to TEMPORARILY turn on the lights in the tunnel.  Kill the Metal
    Head Brutes that attack [13,14,15].  At the end of the tunnel is the final
    turret.  Once the final turret is destroyed, use the metal platforms to jump to
    the ledge.  Continue through the corridor [16,17].  At the end of the corridor,
    jump into the water and go to the tunnel on the right.  Once inside of the
    tunnel, follow it to the elevator to leave the sewer.
    
    Strategy: When reaching one of the turrets, use the walls to hide from the
    shots while you time their frequency.  Once the turret has fired, keep running
    and jumping to avoid being hit by the shots.  If shooting the turret, do not
    fire at it until you are close to it since you will be hit if it is not
    destroyed with the first shot.

    5.4.5 'Beat Time to Race Garage'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Find the Blaster Mod' mission.
    
    Description: When the mission begins, you will receive the green security pass.
    Go outside of the bar and get onto a hover vehicle.  You have 3:00 minutes to
    reach the stadium garage (located at the southeast corner of the garage).  If
    the timer reaches 0:00, the mission is a failure.
    
    Strategy: Since almost all of the allotted time is needed, you cannot afford to
    get lost.  Frequently use the Show Map option from the Options ring to travel
    the shortest path.  The timer is paused while the map is displayed.  Avoid
    collisions with other hover vehicles and buildings as much as possible since
    transferring to a different hover vehicle will cause precious seconds to be
    lost.

    5.4.6 'Collect Money for Krew'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Beat Time to Race Garage' mission.
    
    Description: Get onto a hover vehicle and locate the first of 14 money bags.
    Shortly after beginning, a Krimzon Guard alert will occur and you will be
    pursued by Krimzon Guards.  Once the first bag is reached, the second bag
    location will be displayed on the on-screen map.  There is a varying time limit
    to reach each bag.  The first timer begins once you get onto the hover vehicle.
    If the timer reaches 0:00 before a bag is reached, the mission is a failure.
    Once the last bag has been retrieved, the Krimzon Guard alert will be over and
    you need to go back to the Hip Hog Saloon.
    
    Strategy: Ignore the Krimzon Guard alert and concentrate on reaching each bag
    with minimal number of collisions.  Since there are Krimzon Guards on foot, in
    hover vehicle and turrets shooting, always keep moving since this will prevent
    them from being able to lock-on.

    5.4.7 'Destroy Cargo in Port'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Catch Scouts in Haven Forest' mission.
    (Note: This mission is available shortly after leaving the mountain temple in
    the 'Catch Scouts in Haven Forest' mission and does not require going to the
    Hip Hog Saloon first.)
    
    Description: Go to the port near the Hip Hog Saloon.  In the water are 16
    Krimzon Guard listening devices.  Each device is protected by several mines,
    stationary and/or moving.  Get on the Jet-Board, go to each device, and destroy
    it by running over it.  If a mine is touched, it will explode in several
    seconds.  Once the first device is destroyed or mine touched, you have 2:15
    minutes to destroy all of the remaining listening devices.  If the timer
    reaches 0:00 before all the devices are destroyed, the mission is a failure.
    
    Strategy: Proceed to the device in the most southwestern part of the port.
    Proceed northeast to the second device.  Travel around the structure and go
    east to the third device.  Turn north to find the next device under the bridge
    and then immediately west to locate the fifth device.  Go north to find and
    destroy device six.  Device 7 is located to the west.  Travel northwest to
    locate the next device.  Turn to the east to locate the ninth device and then
    turn southeast to find the next device.  Continue southeast to the next device.
    Turn north to find the next three devices in a row.  Go northeast to the
    fifteenth device.  Finally, go southeast to find the final device.
    
    Tip: Causing a mine to explode will also explode other mines close to it.  This
    will allow for easier access to the listening device it is protecting.

    5.4.8 'Rescue Lurkers for Brutter'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Destroy Cargo in Port' mission.
    
    Description: When the mission begins, the amount of weapon ammunition that can
    be carried will be doubled.  Use a hover vehicle to locate the first Lurker
    transport.  Destroy the transport.  Once this is done, a Krimzon Guard alert
    will begin.  Put the hover vehicle into low hover and the Lurker will climb on.
    Proceed to Brutter's Trinket stand located in the bazaar (indicated by a yellow
    fish icon on the on-screen map).  Once you arrive, the Lurker will get off.
    Repeat this for the remaining two Lurkers.
    
    Strategy: Use the Vulcan Fury gun to destroy the transports.  Approach the
    transport from the rear and wait to shoot at it until very close and then rapid
    fire to destroy it.  Otherwise, the transport will start to speed away once it
    is shot and the Krimzon Guard alert will make it more difficult to destroy the
    transport.  Once a Lurker gets onto the hover vehicle, begin moving immediately
    to minimize damage taken from Krimzon Guard shots.  If the hover vehicle is
    severely damaged (i.e., hover vehicle is on fire or smoke coming from it),
    change to a new one before destroying the next transport.
    
    Tip: After the mission begins, go to the gun range to collect the maximum
    amount of ammunition.  Exiting the gun range, proceeding down the street a
    little and then reentering the gun range will cause the Krimzon Guard crates
    containing the ammunition to reappear.
    
    Tip: Only large hover vehicles can be used.  A Lurker will not get onto a
    small, 1-seater.
    
    New Objects Obtained: Increased weapon ammunition

    5.4.9 'Drain Sewers to Find Statue'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Rescue Lurkers for Brutter' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the green sewer lid icon indicating the sewer entrance.
    Upon entering, walk over to the elevator that will take you to the bottom.
    Travel down the tunnel and step on the light pad to turn on the tunnel lights.
    Follow the narrow path to the next tunnel.  At the end of the tunnel, get on
    the Jet-Board and go to the tunnel on the right (beware of the enemies in the
    water).  Travel down the sloping, metal grating to the ledge.  Use the Jet-
    Board to cross the water to the next ledge containing the valve.  Turn the
    valve by either punching or spin kicking it.  There are three valves that must
    be turned to train the sewer water.  After turning the valve, turn around and
    enter the tunnel on the left (east).  The tunnel has mines in the water (that
    immediately explode when touched) and rotating blades on the walls.  Navigate
    through the tunnel to the large, central area.  Go down the tunnel on the right
    and follow it until reaching the ledge with a valve.  Turn the valve to drain
    some more of the water.  This now exposes the additional hazards of rotating
    gears that pop out of the water and horizontal rotating blades.  Travel back to
    the central area and then go down the tunnel in the right (northwest) corner.
    Jump over the spinning blades and upon reaching the large, horizontal, silver
    rotating gear, use the metal ramp on the right to get over it.  After crossing
    the gear, on the right is a metal ramp with to the ledge containing the final
    valve.  After turning the valve, proceed back to the central area (all of the
    rotating blades will now be above your head).  Upon reaching it, go up the ramp
    to cross the pipe and go down the tunnel ahead.  At the end of the tunnel, Dax
    will retrieve the ruby key from the statue.  Go up the stairs to the right
    (west) of the statue and at the top, jump down to the lower level.  A Precursor
    Orb [1] is located next to the wall in the (south) corner.  Continue down the
    tunnel to reach the elevator to the main level of the sewer.  Take the elevator
    to the top and jump into the left (west) tunnel.  Follow the tunnel to the end
    and jump across the platform to the tunnel on the left (west).  Proceed down
    the tunnel until reaching the elevator back to the city.
    Strategy: When traveling down the sloping, metal grating, try to stay in the
    middle to avoid falling off.  When jumping the rotating, horizontal blades, you
    need to have enough speed in order to clear them.
    
    Tip: Swimming in the water can also be done in addition to using the Jet-Board.
    
    Tip: Quickly getting off the Jet-Board will help avoid running into the
    obstacles.
    
    New Objects Obtained: 1 Precursor Orb

    5.4.10 'Escort Men Through Sewers'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Rescue Friends at Fortress' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the green sewer lid icon indicating the sewer entrance.
    Upon entering, walk over to the elevator that will take you to the bottom.  At
    the bottom, Krew's men will be waiting.  Proceed through the tunnel to the
    elevator that will take you to the bottom.  Move ahead of Krew's men and go
    into the tunnel to the next area [1-3].  Once the men catch up, several Metal
    Head Crawlers will attack [4-6].  After they have been killed, one of the men
    will move to the barricade and set an explosive.  Be sure to be positioned
    behind a pole to avoid being hit by the debris.  Once the barrier is destroyed,
    move into the tunnel and follow it to the end.  Several more Metal Head
    Crawlers will attack from across the catwalk and from the rear [7-10].  Go
    across the catwalk to the elevator.  Once at the bottom, go around the corner
    to the left into the water [11-14].  Proceed across the water to the next
    platform.  Once the men reach the platform, they will see the beams from
    several Metal Head Crawlers around the corner.  Go around the corner and
    destroy them [15-17].  After they are killed, the men will rejoin.  In the next
    long area are more Metal Head Crawlers shooting their beams.  The men will wait
    to proceed until they have been killed.  Continue around the next corner and
    one of the men will blow up the obstruction in front of the tunnel.  Once this
    occurs, MANY Metal Header Crawlers will attack [21-24].  (Note: Not all of the
    Metal Head Crawlers have a Metal Head Skull Gem.).  Once all of the enemies are
    dead, the men will run down the tunnel to the statue.  Once they have retrieved
    the gem, they will leave.  If any of the men's health meter runs out, the
    mission is a failure.  After the men leave, go up the stairs to the right
    (west) of the statue and at the top, jump down to the lower level.  Continue
    down the tunnel to reach the elevator to the main level of the sewer.  Take the
    elevator to the top and jump into the left (west) tunnel.  Follow the tunnel to
    the end and jump across the platform to the tunnel on the left (west).  Proceed
    down the tunnel until reaching the elevator back to the city.
    
    Strategy: Stay close to Krew's men while proceeding through the tunnel.  When
    Metal Head Crawlers are encountered, they will attack from both the front and
    rear.  Even though Krew's men are armed, do not rely on them killing the
    enemies.  In the areas where the Metal Head Crawlers are shooting their beams,
    jump over the beams toward them and continually shoot.  Their beams will stop
    once you are close.  In the final area, stay close to the men since some of the
    Metal Head Crawlers will drop very close to them.  The Metal Head Crawlers will
    attack very quickly so continue to fire and use the rapid fire and aerial rapid
    fire techniques when possible.  The dark bomb or dark blast (if already
    acquired and Dark Jak is available) can also be used in this area to kill most
    (but not all) of the enemies.
    
    Tip: Watch Krew's men to see where the Metal Head Crawlers are attacking from
    since they will turn towards them.  Also, listen for audio cues from them.
    They will only continue through the sewer when the area is clear of enemies.

    5.4.12 'Beat Erol in Race Challenge'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Find the Peace Maker' mission.
    
    Description: Get onto the Hover Racer outside of the Hip Hog Saloon.  You will
    then race Erol through the city in the low hover zone only.  Located in the
    city are blue accelerator rings.  These rings define the race's course and give
    a boost of speed when traveled through.  Each ring must be traveled through in
    order.  Several rings require jumping in order to pass through them.  If the
    rings are traveled out of order (including going through the same ring twice),
    stray too far off course or fail to win the race, the mission is a failure.
    
    Strategy: Do not worry if Erol gets a large lead in the first half of the race.
    You should be able to catch up to him since Jak's Hover Racer is faster.  When
    approaching an accelerator ring, slow down and avoid going through it at an
    angle to prevent being thrown into a structure.  On each turn (with or without
    an accelerator ring), make the turn by starting wide and then "shortcut" the
    corner.
    
    Tip: The accelerator rings do NOT disappear after being flown through.  If one
    is missed, be careful not to accidentally fly through it twice when turning
    around to continue on the course.
    
    Tip: Flying through the exact center of a ring is not required.  Simply
    touching any part of the ring will count as traveling through it.

    allow you to practice them.  You must complete the indicated move before being
    allowed to continue.  Once all of the moves have been completed, proceed down
    the ramp to activate the challenge judge.  Use the various moves just learned
    on any part of the course to receive points.  Multiple move combinations are
    worth a higher point value.  Obtain a score of at least 15000 points in the
    1:30 minute time limit.  The challenge can be repeated if the score is not

    around the ledge to find the Hover Racer.  Once you get on, you will be dropped
    down to the starting line for a race.  The race consists of 5 laps.  Located
    around the course are pink turbo boosts.  A turbo boost will give the Hover
    Racer an extra boost of speed.  The Hover Racer can hold up to three turbo
    boosts.  If you fail to finish the race in first place, the mission is a
    failure.
    
    Strategy: Try to get ahead of the other racers early, use the track's shortcut
    whenever possible and only use a turbo boost on a straight section of track.
    
    Track Shortcut: Located in the C-shaped curve on the western most part of the
    track (based on the on-screen track display).  When the shortcut is approaching
    (the red lights can be seen in the distance), move to the right side of the
    track.  Aim for the second flashing light on the left with the direction of
    travel being toward the tunnel across the gap.  Just before reaching the edge,
    use the turbo boost if available and when reaching the edge, jump the gap.  If
    the jump is done too early, you will crash and explode into the wall on the
    other side of the gap.  If the direction traveling when making the jump is not
    pointing into the tunnel, you will crash into tunnel wall and possibly destroy
    the Hover Racer (but definitely incur considerable damage).
    
    Tip: Since the Hover Racer can be damaged and destroyed, use the brake
    (especially in the hard turns) to avoid flying into the wall and taking damage.

    5.5.3 'Win Class 2 Race at Stadium'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Win Class 3 Race at Stadium' and 'Rescue
    Friends at Fortress' missions.
    
    Description: Once the mission starts, you will be in the Hover Racer.  The race
    consists of 5 laps.  Located around the course are pink turbo boosts.  A turbo
    boost will give the Hover Racer an extra boost of speed.  The Hover Racer can
    hold up to three turbo boosts.  If you fail to finish the race in first place,
    the mission is a failure.
    
    Strategy: Try to get ahead of the other racers early, use the track's shortcut
    whenever possible and only use a turbo boost on a straight section of track.
    When reaching the section of the track where the left and right sides dip
    (indicated by a black and yellow stripe), stay in the center section since
    these dips will slow you down.
    
    Track Shortcut: Located in the upside-down U-shaped curve on the northern most
    part of the track (based on the on-screen track display).  When the shortcut is
    approaching (the red lights can seen in the distance), move to the right side
    of the track.  Just before reaching the edge, use the turbo boost if available
    and when reaching the edge, jump the gap between the columns, being closer to
    the one on the right.
    
    Tip: Since the Hover Racer can be damaged and destroyed, use the brake
    (especially in the hard turns) to avoid flying into the wall and taking damage.

    5.5.4 'Win Class 1 Race at Stadium'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Win Class 2 Race at Stadium' and Brutter's
    'Rescue Lurkers for Brutter' missions.
    
    Description: Travel to the icon indicating the stadium entrance.  Proceed
    around straight to the Hover Racer.  Once you get on, you will be dropped down
    to the starting line for a race.  The race consists of 5 laps.  Located around
    the course are pink turbo boosts.  A turbo boost will give the Hover Racer an
    extra boost of speed.  The Hover Racer can hold up to three turbo boosts.  If
    you fail to finish the race in first place, the mission is a failure.  At the
    end of the race, you will receive a palace security pass.
    
    Strategy: Try to get ahead of the other racers early, use the track's shortcuts
    whenever possible and only use a turbo boost on a straight section of track.
    When reaching the section of the track where the left and right sides dip
    (indicated by a silver strip), stay in the center section since these dips will
    slow you down.
    
    Track Shortcut #1: Located in the backwards C-shaped curve just after the
    starting/finishing line in the northeast part of the track (based on the on-
    screen track display) just past the starting line on the right side.  When the
    shortcut is approaching, move to the left side of the track and turn into the
    shortcut.  Be careful as other racers may bump you and prevent the shortcut
    from being taken.  In order to take this shortcut when the race begins, do not
    accelerate immediately (allowing the racers to the right to move ahead) and
    turn into the shortcut.  On subsequent laps, this shortcut comes very soon
    after the second shortcut.
    
    Track Shortcut #2: Located in the right hand curve in the northwest part of the
    track (based on the on-screen track display) on the right side.  When the
    shortcut is approaching (shortly after completing the hard right turn), stay on
    the left side of the track through the left turn to give a straight approach to
    it.  The finish line is immediately after this shortcut.
    
    Tip: Since the Hover Racer can be damaged and destroyed, use the brake
    (especially in the hard turns) to avoid flying into the wall and taking damage.

    5.5.5 'Defend Stadium'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Escort Sig in Underport' mission.
    (Note: This mission is available shortly after completing the 'Escort Sig in
    Underport' mission and does not require going to stadium garage first.)
    
    Description: Travel to the silver wrench icon to talk with Keira.  After the
    cinematic is complete, Samos and Samos will carry the Rift Rider to the balloon
    lift on the other side of the stadium.  They must be protected from the Metal
    Heads that will be attacking from all directions.  If a Metal Head hits them,
    they will stop walking and kill the enemy, but will also sustain damage.  After
    reaching the balloon lift, they must continue to be protected while they
    prepare for lift off.  If either Samos' health meter runs out, the mission is a
    failure.
    
    Strategy: When the mission begins, break the Krimzon Guard crates to collect
    any needed ammunition.  Equip the Blaster Gun and stay close to Samos.
    Continually look in all directions because the Metal Heads will attack from all
    sides.  When Samos passes the steps, change to the Scatter Gun and shoot any
    enemy that gets close.  The dark bomb or dark blast (if already acquired and
    Dark Jak is available) can also be used to eliminate a large number of the
    attacking Metal Heads.
    
    Tip: Do NOT worry about collecting the Metal Head Skull Gems dropped by the
    killed Metal Heads.

    5.6.1 'Destroy Eggs at Drill Platform'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Rescue Vin at Strip Mine' mission.
    
    Description: Enter the warp gate to arrive at the drilling platform.  Jump down
    to the ledge [1,2,3,4].  Walk to the edge of the platform, jump down to the
    lower level and go to the elevator [5-10].  The elevator will take you to the
    upper level.  Get into the gunpod and shoot all of the glowing eggs (5 sets, 58
    total) and the attacking Metal Head Strafes [11-16].  (Refer to the Gunpod
    section for information on operating the gunpod.)  Once all of the eggs and
    Metal Head Strafes are destroyed, exit the gunpod and take the elevator to the
    lower level.  A Precursor Orb [1] is in the corner (southwest) of the lower
    level.  Use the ledges to jump up to the next level.  A Precursor Orb [2] is on
    the second ledge in the corner (northwest) behind several Krimzon Guard crates.
    Travel up the conveyor belt and kill the Metal Head Guard inside of the doorway
    [17].  Proceed into the next area [18-27].  A Precursor Orb [3] is located in
    the left (south) corner of the far left (west) wall.  Use the barrels to jump
    up to the metal grate platform.  Go across the platform, avoiding the fire in
    the middle section.  Jump to the second platform and again avoid the fire in
    the middle section.  Once across, spin kick the flashing red switch to raise a
    platform.  Quickly jump onto the raised platform and then to the next ledge as
    the raised platform will drop.  Travel down the conveyor built [28,29,30,31].
    Follow the platform and spin kick the next switch.  Jump across to the raised
    platform [32,33,34,35].  Jump down to the lower ledge and cross the catwalk to
    the next platform while avoiding fire from the Metal Head Strafe [36-41].  Go
    to the elevator and it will take it to the upper level.  Kill the enemies on
    the platform before getting into the gunpod [42,43].  Shoot all of the eggs (4
    sets, 44 total) and attacking Metal Head Strafers [44-52].  Once completed,
    take the elevator down to the lower level [53-60].  A Precursor Orb [4] is
    behind the barrels on the lower level.  Use the barrels to jump to the ledge
    and kill the Metal Head Guard inside of the doorway [61].  Go through the door
    and jump down to the lower ledge.  Jump across each platform using the poles in
    between (since the platforms will collapse once touched).  When the next ledge
    is reached, follow the ledge to the elevator and take it to the upper level
    [62,63,64,65].  Get into the gunpod and again destroy all of the eggs (5 sets,
    49 total) and attacking Metal Head Strafes [66-75].  Once completed, you will
    see the crane collapse, creating a makeshift bridge.  Return to the elevator
    and take it to the lower level.  A Precursor Orb [5] is in the corner next to
    the elevator.  Travel around the level until reaching the bridge [76,77].
    Proceed across the bridge to reach the warp gate exit.  If any of the gunpods
    are destroyed before the eggs are destroyed, the mission is a failure.
    
    Strategy: While in the gunpod, use short, controlled bursts instead of
    continuously firing while being attacked to avoid the gunpod overheating.  Do
    not attempt to destroy the eggs until all of the Metal Head Strafes have been
    eliminated.  Upon reaching the second switch to spin kick, use the Blaster Gun
    to kill the Metal Head Wasps on the destination platform.  When confronted with
    many enemies at one time, use the dark bomb (if already acquired and Dark Jak
    is available) or the rapid-fire gun technique to quickly eliminate the enemies.

    5.6.2 'Turn on 5 Power Switches'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Find Pumping Station Patrol' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to each of the switches found in the city.  Each switch is
    protected by a motion-sensing turret.  Once the turret is destroyed, jump onto
    the red power switch.  After the first switch is turned on, a Krimzon Guard
    alert will occur and Krimzon Guards will pursue.
    
    Strategy: Use a hover vehicle to ram a turret to destroy it.  Once the turret
    is destroyed, jump onto the switch and back into the hover vehicle as quickly
    as possible.  If on foot, once the turret has activated, keep running and
    jumping to avoid being hit by the shots.  If shooting the turret, do not fire
    at it until you are close to it since you will be hit if it is not destroyed
    with the first shot.
    
    Tip: 2-seat hover vehicles (especially those used by the Krimzon Guards) are
    the best for ramming the turrets.

    5.6.3 'Blow Up Strip Mine Eco Wells'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Destroy Equipment at Dig' mission.
    
    Description: Enter the warp gate at the power station.  Upon reaching the strip
    mine, you have 2:00 minutes to drop a plasmite bomb into six eco wells (large,
    blue structure with blue eco coming from the top).  Each eco well has a ramp on
    the side of it to use to reach the top with the Jet-Board.  At the top of the
    ramp, you need to jump in order to have enough height to drop the bomb.  Once
    the bomb has been dropped, the blue eco coming from the top will turn into dark
    eco.  If the timer reaches 0:00, the mission is a failure.  A Precursor Orb [1]
    is located to the southeast of the northern well on the left (east) side of the
    crates on the left (east) side of the round building.
    
    Strategy: Use the Show Map option from the Options ring to find the location of
    the eco wells.  The first well is located on a cliff immediately to the left
    (south) of the warp gate.  The second well is on a ledge to the right
    (southwest) of the first well.  To get to the second well, get onto the ledge
    to the left (north) of the first well.  Go left to the structure on the ledge.
    Jump to the ledge behind the structure.  Follow the path to the well.  The
    third well is to the right (west) of the second well on a hill.  The fourth
    well is on a hill to the right (south) of the third well.  The fifth well is on
    a cliff to the right (west) of the fourth well.  The sixth well is located to
    the right (north) of the mine's elevated carts.  In order to reach it, use the
    Jet-Board to go to the top of the left (north) slanted support structure for
    the carts.  Once at the top, jump on one of the carts and jump to the ledge
    when the cart reaches it.  The well is behind the buildings.  After the well is
    destroyed, turn around and the Precursor Orb is located to the left of the
    crates to the left of the round building.

    5.6.4 'Destroy Ship at Drill Platform'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Blow Up Strip Mine Eco Wells' mission.
    
    Description: Enter the warp gate at the power station.  Upon reaching the drill
    platform, jump down the ledge on the left (north) and get into the gunpod.
    (Refer to the Gunpod section for information on operating the gunpod.)  The
    gunpod will travel along the track and stop where Hover Guards will attack.
    Once the Hover Guards have been destroyed, the gunpod will continue along the
    track until reaching the corner.  An additional 40 Hover Guards will attack.
    One they have been destroyed, the gunpod will continue to the ledge.  Exit the
    gunpod and proceed to the next gunpod [1-4].  As the second gunpod proceeds
    around the corner, the supply ship will be seen.  The supply ship has 11 gun
    stations (4 on top, 4 under the wing and 3 in the windows).  A gun will
    randomly appear in one of the stations and begin firing for several seconds.
    In addition to the ship's guns, several Hover Guards will also be attacking.
    The objective is to destroy each of the guns (a gun is destroyed when an
    explosion is seen after shooting it).  Once the guns have been destroyed, the
    ship will move away and the gunpod will continue to the ledge.  Jump up the
    ledges until reaching the third gunpod.  Again, destroy the guns in the supply
    ship's stations to eliminate the supply ship.
    
    Strategy: Use short, controlled bursts instead of continuously firing while to
    avoid the gunpod overheating.  Try to shoot the attacking Hover Guards before
    they can get into range to fire.  When attacking the supply ship, only shoot at
    the Hover Guards when the ship's guns are not firing (i.e., concentrate on
    destroying the guns before destroying the Hover Guards).

    5.6.5 'Destroy Eggs at Strip Mine'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Beat Erol in Race Challenge' mission.
    
    Description: Enter the warp gate at the power station.  Go up the cliff
    immediately to the left (south) of the warp gate.  Get onto the ledge to the
    left (north) of the eco well and go left to the structure on the ledge.  Jump
    to the ledge behind the structure.  Pass the spinning blades and follow the
    path to the moving platform.  Jump onto the moving platform and then onto the
    ledge.  Continue past the vertical saw.  Jump the gap and go to the edge of the
    platform.  Get onto the Jet-Board, jump onto the pipe connected to the platform
    and grind to the next platform.  On the next platform, go past the two vertical
    saws.  When reaching the edge of the platform, there will be two pipes leading
    across.  Get onto the Jet-Board, grind across either pipe and jump to the ledge
    (Note: The pipe is NOT connected to the ledge).  The only difference between
    the pipes is the one on the left has two curves while the one on the right only
    has one.  Directly ahead is a curved structure.  A Precursor Orb [1] on the
    left (south) side of the structure near the cliff.  Proceed up the conveyor
    belt and jump over the spinning blades.  Continue across the platform, jump
    over the ledge and pass the horizontal saw.  At the end of the platform will be
    two pipes leading to the next platform.  These pipes are NOT attached to the
    current platform.  Get onto the Jet-Board, jump onto one of the pipes and grind
    to the next platform.  On the right (east) side of the platform is a half-pipe
    with two barricades.  Travel up one side of the half-pipe and jump over the
    first barricade.  Repeat for the second barricade and then jump onto the next
    ledge.  Follow the path on the ledge to a moving platform.  Jump onto the
    moving platform and then jump and grind across one of the three pipes to the
    next platform.  At the edge of the platform is a pipe with a gap in the middle
    leading to the next platform.  Grind across the pipe and jump over the gap.
    Proceed past the horizontal saw and spinning vertical blades.  At the edge of
    the ledge are 3 pipes with a moving platform at the far end.  Grind across one
    of the pipes, jump to the moving platform and then onto the next ledge.  On
    this ledge is a curved structure to the left (south) and two conveyor belts to
    the right (north).  Two Precursor Orbs [2,3] are behind the curved structure
    (to reach them, there is a small path that leads to the rear between the right
    (west) side of the structure and a pole).  Travel up one of the conveyor belts
    and follow the upper ledge to the two moving platforms.  Jump across the moving
    platforms to the next ledge.  Follow the path on the ledge between the crates
    and cliffs.  A Precursor Orb [4] is on an upper ledge to the left (north) of
    the crates (jump onto the crates and I-beams to reach it).  Follow the path
    until reaching a metal platform.  Get on the Jet-Board and at the end of the
    platform, jump to the container being suspended by the crane (aim for the
    crane's cable).
    
    Strategy: Other than grinding across the pipes, everything in the first half of
    the mission (up to jumping to the pipes not connected to the current platform)
    can be done on foot and does not have to be done on the Jet-Board.
    
    Tip: Each pipe to grind across has a yellow line painted on the platform(s) it
    is connected.  Use this to line up the direction for jumping onto the pipe.

    Available: After the completion of 'Find Pumping Station Patrol' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the mountain icon indicating the temple entrance and
    enter the warp gate.  The lens is indicated by the blinking green dot in the
    southeast portion of the Show Map option from the Options ring.  Go around the
    corner until reaching an upside down platform.  Shoot the platform using the
    Blaster Gun to turn it right side up.  Quickly jump across the platform to the
    next ledge.  Continue to the large round platform that is an elevator that will
    take you to the bottom.  Once at the bottom, continue until reaching a path to
    the left [1,2] (Note: Since this same starting route is used for each Mountain
    Temple mission, the Metal Head Skull Gems in the starting route will only
    appear on the first mission).  Travel down the path [3] and jump up the ledges
    [4,5,6].  Jump across the floating platforms in front of the waterfall.  Jump
    down the ledge and kill the Metal Head Ram that smashes through the cliff wall
    [7].  Dive attack the brown button to extend a brown ledge out from the cliff.
    Use the brown ledge to jump to the next ledge and continue to the top [8].  Go
    across the ledge with the brown circles in the ground.  Once across, the ledge
    will collapse and the circles will become floating platforms.  Jump to the
    third floating platform and use it to reach the ledge above.  Shoot the upside
    down platform and jump across.  Continue across the ledge until reaching a
    narrow sliding platform.  Jump onto the sliding platform and jump over the
    barrier to the next sliding platform.  Jump over the second barrier to the next
    sliding platform and then onto the ledge.  Proceed around the corner until
    reaching the water [9-12].  Use the floating platforms to jump across the
    water.  A Precursor Orb [1] is in the water, between the platforms near the
    waterfall.  Continue across the next ledge [13-18] and go around the corner
    [19].  Dive attack the brown button to activate two ledges.  Use these ledges
    to jump to the ledge above [20-27].  Go across the ledge to the water.  A
    Precursor Orb [2] is in the water to the left (east).  Swim across the water
    and jump into the structure.  Retrieve the lens from the light in the center.
    
    Strategy: None needed
    
    Tip: When jumping across the moving platforms, jump when the platform is moving
    towards you to minimize the distance.
    
    Tip: When jumping across the narrow sliding platforms, jump at an angle in the
    direction the platform is moving.
    
    Tip: Once completing the mission, you can quickly return to the warp gate by
    jumping off the side of a cliff.

    5.7.2 'Find Gear in Mountain Temple'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Find Pumping Station Patrol' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the mountain icon indicating the temple entrance and
    enter the warp gate.  The gear is indicated by the blinking green dot in the
    southwest portion of the Show Map option from the Options ring.  Go around the
    corner until reaching an upside down platform.  Shoot the platform using the
    Blaster Gun to turn it right side up.  Quickly jump across the platform to the
    next ledge.  Continue to the large round platform that is an elevator that will
    take you to the bottom.  Once at the bottom, continue until reaching a path to
    the left (Note: Since this same starting route is used for each Mountain Temple
    mission, the Metal Head Skull Gems in the starting route will only appear on
    the first mission).  Continue straight and go into the orange structure
    [1,2,3].  Exit though the left (west) doorway.  Shoot the first upside down
    platform, jump to it and then do the same for the second and third platform.
    Upon reaching the third platform, a Metal Head Ram will break through the cliff
    wall and begin attacking.  Jump down to the ledge and kill the Metal Head Ram
    [4].  Dive attack the brown button to extend brown ledges out from the cliff.
    Use the brown ledges to jump to the next higher ledge.  A Precursor Orb [1] is
    on the back (west) side of the tree next to several Krimzon Guard crates.
    Continue traveling along the path [5-8].  At the end of the path, jump down to
    the lower ledge.  Travel across the ledge while avoiding the falling stones.
    Jump up the ledges on the side of the cliff while continuing to avoid the
    falling rocks.  Once at the top, follow the path until reaching three upside
    down platforms.  Shoot the first upside down platform, jump to it and then do
    the same for the second and third platform.  Jump off the third platform onto
    the ledge.  Follow the grass path up the stairs to the structure.  Once at the
    top, Daxter will retrieve the gear.
    
    Strategy: While avoiding the falling rocks, stay close to the cliff (since the
    rocks will not hit you there) and watch for an opportunity to proceed.  Only
    jump to the next ledge when there are no rocks falling in the path to the next
    ledge since being hit by one will knock you to the bottom.
    
    Tip: There are two health packs located on two ledges while avoiding the
    falling rocks.
    
    Tip: Once completing the mission, you can quickly return to the warp gate by
    jumping off the side of a cliff.

    5.7.3 'Find Shard in Mountain Temple'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Find Pumping Station Patrol' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the mountain icon indicating the temple entrance and
    enter the warp gate.  The shard is indicated by the blinking green dot in the
    north portion of the Show Map option from the Options ring.  Go around the
    corner until reaching an upside down platform.  Shoot the platform using the
    Blaster Gun to turn it right side up.  Quickly jump across the platform to the
    next ledge.  Continue to the large round platform that is an elevator that will
    take you to the bottom.  Once at the bottom, proceed until reaching a path to
    the left (Note: Since this same starting route is used for each Mountain Temple
    mission, the Metal Head Skull Gems in the starting route will only appear on
    the first mission).  Continue straight and go into the orange structure.  Exit
    though the right (north) doorway.  Run up the pipe on the left to a ledge.  Go
    down the path to find three Precursor Orbs [1,2,3].  Turn around and proceed
    back to the orange structure.  Continue down the grass path [1,2,3] and follow
    it to the grass ledges [4,5].  Jump up the ledges and kill the MANY Metal Head
    Hoppers that attack [6-19].  Jump down the ledges to the grass area [20].  A
    Precursor Orb [4] is in the (east) corner of the grassy area.  Use the ledges
    on the cliff to jump to the next ridge.  A Precursor Orb [5] is behind the far
    right (south) tree.  Continue across the ridge until reaching a narrow sliding
    platform.  Jump onto the sliding platform and jump over the barrier to the next
    sliding platform.  Jump over the second barrier to the next sliding platform
    and then onto the ledge.  Jump down the ledges to the bottom.  Use the five
    brown "boxes" to create a path across the dark eco lake.  Doing a punch or spin
    kick to any side of the box will "open" it.  The next side that is punched or
    spin kicked will be laid down over the lake (see solution below).  Once across
    the lake, jump up the ledge and shoot the floating platform.  Jump onto the
    floating platform and then to the next ledge.  Defeat the Metal Head Ram on the
    ledge [21] and jump across the floating platform on the left (north) to the
    next platform.  Go inside of the structure to retrieve the shard.  Turn around
    and return to the floating platform.  Jump to the floating platform and then
    back onto the platform.  Below the platform on the opposite (south) side is a
    ledge.  Three Precursor Orbs [6,7,8] are located on the ledge behind a tree.
    
    Dark Eco Lake Box Solution  Each box has 5 sides to be laid down.  The first
    side is always the side OPPOSITE where the last side of the previous box was
    laid down (i.e., if the last box's side is touching the left side of the next
    box, the right side of the box will be laid down).  Since there is only one
    possible first move for a box, it is not listed here.  The remaining moves
    indicate which side should be punched/spin kicked based on the direction Jak is
    facing when stepping onto the square.
       Box 1: Left (east), straight (east), straight (east), right (south)
       Box 2: Left (east), right (south), left (east), right (south)
       Box 3: Right (west), straight (west), straight (west), left (south)
       Box 4: Straight (south), right (west), left (south), straight (south)
       Box 5: Straight (south), right (west), left (south), straight (south)
    
    Strategy: Use the dark bomb (if already acquired and Dark Jak is available)
    when the Metal Head Hoppers attack to quickly kill most (if not all) of them.
    
    Tip: When jumping across the narrow sliding platforms, jump at an angle in the
    direction the platform is moving.
    
    Tip: Once completing the mission, you can quickly return to the warp gate by
    jumping off the side of a cliff.

    5.7.4 'Get Seal Piece at Dig'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Destroy Ship at Drill Platform' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the red Air Train icon indicating the Air Train station.
    The Air Train will take you to the excavation site.  Go into the tunnel that is
    to the right (south) of the landing pad and take the elevator to the bottom.
    Proceed into the cave and jump onto the ledge.  Continue along the ledge and
    when reaching the end, jump to the lower level [1-5].  At the end of the lower
    level, take the tunnel on the left and proceed into the large cave.  Continue
    along the ledge until reaching the edge with a pipe attached [6,7].  Jump down
    to the ground and go down the hill [8-12].  Jump onto the platform, go into the
    tunnel and follow it to the next cave area [13,14].  Proceed through the
    lighted area into the dark area [15,16].  At the edge of the cave to the left
    (west) is a switch.  Dive attack the switch to start raising a wooden column.
    Jump onto the wood ledge and follow it to the spinning log.  Jump across the
    spinning log to the next ledge.  Turn left and jump to the ledge and then the
    rock [17].  Dive attack the switch on the rock.  Return to the ledge after the
    spinning log.  Jump onto the next wood ledge [18,19,20].  Take the right fork
    and jump up the wooden ledges.  At the end of the ledge is a metal bridge.  A
    Precursor Orb [1] is located above the metal bridge.  The next switch is in a
    tunnel below the bridge.  Dive attack each section of the bridge to lower it.
    A section cannot be more than two "levels" below any other section or the
    entire bridge will collapse.  When the switch is reached, dive attack it and
    continue into the tunnel.  Jump onto the ledge and continue into the cave with
    the lava.  Jump onto the floating rocks and then to the left (south) ledge
    [21,22].  Follow the tunnel and jump over the lava.  When the large cave is
    reached, a Precursor Orb [2] is on top of the hill to the left (southeast) of
    the entrance.  Go back through the tunnel to the first lava pool.  Jump across
    the lava and proceed across the sand to the next switch [23,24,25,26].  Dive
    attack the switch and then jump onto the stone platform to the left of the
    switch.  Jump onto the wood ledge and go along the platform.  Just before
    reaching the tree, there is a ledge on the left (west) side of the platform.  A
    Precursor Orb [3] is on the ledge.  Continue along the platform and take the
    left fork.  Go up the incline and jump up the ledges.  Using the steps near the
    wall on the right (east) side of the platform, jump down to the ledge.  A
    Precursor Orb [4] is on the ledge.  Jump onto the wooden bridge and follow it
    to the rocks.  Use the rocks to jump to the next ledge [27-33].  A Precursor
    Orb [5] is located in the right (east) corner of the ledge near the lavafall.
    Proceed to the room on the left (west) side of the ledge.  The final switch is
    located in the room.  Retrace the path to return to the highest platform.  Get
    onto the Jet-Board and grind across the pipe to the next bridge.  Proceed
    around the ledge and jump to the higher ledge.  Use the trapeze on the balloon
    to reach the other side [34,35,36,37].  Jump up the ledges to reach the wood
    column [38-42].  Jump down to the ledge that is left (south) of the wood
    column.  Go around the ledge to the edge.  A Precursor Orb [6] is on the higher
    ledge.  Return to the wood column.  Jump to the upper ledge and go through the
    tunnel to the cave with lava [43,44,45].  Jump to the first rock formation in
    the lava (that will begin to sink once touched).  Quickly run and jump to the
    next rock formation that is angled to the left.  Run and jump to the next ledge
    [46,47].  Go up the ramp to the platform.  Use the trapeze on the balloon to
    reach the next platform.  Use the next balloon trapeze to reach the next
    tunnel.  Follow the tunnel to the next cave.  Once the cave is reached, turn
    right (west) and jump down to the lower ledge [48,49,50,51].  A Precursor Orb
    [7] is at the end of the ledge.  Turn around and follow the ledge around under
    the platform.  Continue following the ledge and jump to the rock ledge at the
    end.  Jump to the wood platform.  A Precursor Orb [8] is located on the wood
    platform.  Proceed into the center of the cave and walk through all portions
    [52-59].  Return to the platform at the cave entrance and jump to the next
    higher ledge.  Jump across the spinning log and up to the next platform.  Turn
    right and jump on the windmill platform to reach the next ledge.  Turn left and
    use the next windmill platform to reach the next ledge [60].  On the right is a
    ramp with spiked boulders coming down it.  Go up the ramp to the ledge, turn
    left (west) and jump to the next ledge.  Jump to the next ledge to retrieve the
    seal.  After the cinematic is over, jump to the ledge to the left (south) of
    the idol and follow it to find a warp gate to the power station.
    
    Strategy: Wait to jump onto a spinning log until just after it finishes
    rotating.  Jump off (or straight up if not near the end) as soon as the log
    begins to "vibrate".  When getting onto the trapezes, wait until it is swinging
    towards you and then do a double jump to get on.  Similarly, wait until the
    trapeze is swinging towards the ledge or platform and the rotation is upward
    and then do a double jump to get off.  When avoiding the boulders, the small
    ones drop at a higher rate than the large ones (about 2x).  Wait for a large
    boulder to pass and then run up the ramp.  Once at the top, stand between the
    two chutes (since boulders will not hit you here).  Jump to the next ledge as
    soon as a small boulder comes out of the chute.

    *******************************************************************************
    5.7.5 'Beat Onin's Game'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Destroy 5 Hellcat Cruisers' mission.
    
    Description: Onin will throw symbols in the air corresponding to the triangle,
    square, circle and X buttons on the game controller.  While the symbol is in
    the air, press the appropriate button.  Points are awarded for pressing the
    correct button as quickly as possible.  Higher points are awarded for earlier
    button presses.  If the symbol falls to the ground, no points are awarded and
    it counts as a miss.  If the wrong button is pressed, penalty points are
    assessed and it counts as a miss.  The goal is to achieve 400 points.  If 20
    misses occur, the mission is a failure.
    
    Strategy: Be sure you know the location of the buttons before beginning since
    you will not be able to look at the controller, especially when the symbols are
    appearing quickly.  Since some symbols are thrown higher than others are, press
    the button for the lower symbols first.  When the symbols begin appearing
    quickly, focus and concentrate on pressing the buttons in the order they are
    thrown.
    
    Tip: If the SELECT button is pressed, the game is paused.  This allows the
    current symbols in the air to be seen and then when the game is continued, the
    correct buttons can be quickly pressed.  This trick can be repeated to aid in
    achieving the goal.

    5.7.6 'Use Items in No Man's Canyon'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Beat Onin's Game' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the mountain icon indicating the temple entrance and
    enter the warp gate.  Go around the corner until reaching an upside down
    platform.  Shoot the platform using the Blaster Gun to turn it right side up.
    Quickly jump across the platform to the next ledge.  Continue to the large
    round platform that is an elevator that will take you to the bottom.  Once at
    the bottom, turn right and step into the yellow column of light to open the
    secret door.  Jump down to the lower ledge and proceed to the edge.  Get onto
    the Jet-Board and jump onto the pipe.  Grind down the pipe and jump over the
    yellow connector structures.  At the end of the pipe, jump onto the ledge.
    Turn left (west) and go through the open door.  Follow the path to the edge and
    jump down the ledge to the lower path.  Follow the path to the end to see a
    cinematic.  Once the cinematic is over, follow the path back to the last door
    entered.  Go through the door and continue straight down the path to the edge
    of the ledge.  Do a rolling jump to reach the ledge with the warp gate and exit
    to the city.
    
    Strategy: None needed
    
    Tip: Simply jumping off the last ledge will restart you on the ledge next to
    the warp gate.

    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Get Life Seed in Dead Town' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the mountain icon indicating the temple entrance and
    enter the warp gate.  Go around the corner and jump on the left (west) floating
    platform.  Jump off the platform when it reaches the ledge at Haven Forest.
    Get onto the Jet-Board and travel to Samos' location.
    
    Strategy: After entering the forest, traveling to the right (southwest) is
    slightly shorter distance.  Use the Show Map option from the Options ring to
    determine the best route to Samos.

    *******************************************************************************
    5.8.1 'Catch Scouts in Haven Forest'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Protect Site in Dead Town' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the mountain icon indicating the temple entrance.  Upon
    entering, you will receive a Jet-Board.  Proceed through the warp gate.  Go
    around the corner and jump on the floating platform indicated by the yellow
    column of light.  Jump off the platform when it reaches the ledge at Haven
    Forest.  Jump down the two ledges to the bottom.  A Precursor Orb [1] is in the
    water near the waterfall.  Get onto the Jet-Board and proceed southeast to find
    the first Metal Head Scout.  The Metal Head Scout will start flying away once
    approached.  Follow the Metal Head Scout and when close enough, Jak will grab
    it to kill it [1].  After killing the first Metal Head Scout, follow the stream
    east to the next section of forest.  A Precursor Orb [2] is in the water just
    past the bridge when entering the section of forest.  Travel down the stream
    until reaching a fork.  A Precursor Orb [3] is in the water just after passing
    the cliff in the left fork.  Continue down the stream (NOT the left fork).  A
    Precursor Orb [4] is in the water just past the tree in the center of the
    stream.  On the left (east) is a fork leading to a metal structure.  A
    Precursor Orb [5] is in the water on the right just before reaching the
    structure.  Return to the fork and proceed downstream.  A Precursor Orb [6] is
    in the water on the right just after passing the tree next to the cliff.
    Proceed east toward the metal structure.  A Precursor Orb [7] is in the center
    of the water just after beginning to pass between the cliffs.  Continue
    swimming toward the structure and upon reaching it, turn right (south).  A
    Precursor Orb [8] is in the water on the left just after passing between the
    metal structures.  Locate, chase and kill the second and third Metal Head Scout
    in this area [2,3].  A Precursor Orb [9] is located to the left (southwest) of
    the second wooden structure found in the southern most part of this section of
    forest.  Find and bring down the final two Metal Head Scouts [4,5].  In order
    to exit the forest, either retrace the route taken to reach this section or use
    the tunnel in the west part of the forest.  Once back at the forest entrance,
    jump up the ledges and then jump onto the floating platform to return to the
    temple mountain.  Jump off the platform to the grass ledge.  Go to the path on
    the left and shoot the platform using the Blaster Gun to turn it right side up.
    Quickly jump across the platform to the next ledge.  Continue to the large
    round platform that is an elevator that will take you to the bottom.  Once at
    the bottom, proceed straight and go into the orange structure.  Exit though the
    right (north) doorway.  Go down the grass path and follow it to the grass
    ledges.  Jump up the ledges and kill the MANY Metal Head Hoppers that attack.
    Jump down the ledges to the grass area.  Use the ledges on the cliff to jump to
    the next ridge.  Go the left (south) side of the ledge near the tree.  Jump
    down to the ledge below.  A Precursor Orb [10] is on the ledge.  Travel down
    the path and jump up to the next ledge.  A Precursor Orb [11] is on the ledge.
    Turn around and go to the edge of the dark eco lake.  Get onto the Jet-Board
    and jump onto the lake.  On the left (south) is a path leading between the
    cliffs.  Jump onto the ledge and get off the Jet-Board.  Travel down the path,
    jump up to the next ledge and proceed to the edge.  Three Precursor Orbs
    [12,13,14] are located on the ledges below.  Continue to the dark eco lake, get
    onto the Jet-Board and cross the dark eco lake.  After crossing, there is a
    small alcove (next to the large yellow light) to the right (west) of the grass
    ledges.  A Precursor Orb [15] is located in the alcove.  Return to the grass
    ledges, jump up the ledges and shoot the floating platform.  Jump onto the
    floating platform and then onto the platform.  Jump off the platform on the
    left (south) side and reenter the orange structure.  Proceed back to the warp
    gate using the elevator.
    
    Strategy: When chasing the Metal Head Scouts, use any available shortcut to
    decrease the distance.
    
    Tip: Use the Show Map option from the Options ring to locate the next Metal
    Head Scout since they may have moved if you got too close while chasing one of
    the other scouts.
    
    New Objects Obtained: Jet-Board

    *******************************************************************************
    5.8.2 'Escort Kid to Power Stations'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Catch Scouts in Haven Forest' mission.
    
    Description: As the mission begins, you must travel to the hover vehicle parked
    near the hideout.  The Krimzon Guard will begin attacking on foot and you must
    protect the kid (indicated by a small blue dot on the on-screen map).  Once the
    hover vehicle is reached, drive it to the power station.  When the power
    station is reached, stop in the yellow column of light.  Protect the kid from
    the Krimzon Guard as he proceeds up the ramp and reaches the power station
    door.  If the Krimzon Guards catch the kid or the hover vehicle is destroyed
    (killing the kid), the mission is a failure.
    
    Strategy: While traveling on foot, use the Scatter Gun to shoot the Krimzon
    Guard.  This will knock several of them down at one time.  Stay close to the
    kid (keeping him in view on the screen) or otherwise he is likely to be caught.
    Watch the on-screen map for the Krimzon Guards since they can and will approach
    from the rear.
    
    Tip: Retrieve the ammunition from the Krimzon Guard crates near the hideout
    before talking to the Shadow.  This will eliminate having to do it after the
    mission starts.
    
    Tip: When a Krimzon Guard reaches the kid, the kid will stop and put up his
    hands.  The mission failure will not occur for several seconds, allowing time
    for the guard to be killed.

    5.8.3 'Get Life Seed in Dead Town'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Beat Erol in Race Challenge' mission.
    (Note: This mission is available shortly after completing the race in the 'Beat
    Erol in Race Challenge' mission and does not require going to Torn's hideout
    first.)
    
    Description: Travel to the brown building icon indicating the entrance to Dead
    Town.  Once inside, travel along the path and jump to the small island.  Go to
    the right (south) side of the island.  Get on the Jet-Board and go to the
    northeast toward the ruins where the lights are.  Jump into the doorway under
    the ruins to find a Precursor Orb [1].  A Precursor Orb [2] is located above
    the water inside of the door.  Travel down the tunnel to the right (southeast)
    to find three additional Precursor Orbs [3,4,5].  Turn right (southeast) and
    proceed through the door.  A Precursor Orb [6] is located in the doorway.  Go
    to the right (northwest) to return to the first island.  When it is reached,
    get off the Jet-Board and get into the Titan Suit.  (Refer to the Titan Suit
    controls section for information on using the Titan Suit.)  Turn left
    (northwest) and punch the wall that has the red target indicator.  Go into the
    created hole and turn right (northeast) [1].  Break the next wall and go into
    the area [2,3].  Break the wall on the left (northwest) and proceed into the
    next area.  In the center of the area is a large block.  Push the block next to
    the left (southwest) wall.  Jump onto the block and then onto the ledge.  A
    Precursor Orb [7] is on the narrow ledge to the rear (east).  Proceed around
    the corner and down the path [4].  At the end of the path, break the indicated
    wall and go into the next area.  This area has a block that must be pushed
    against the wall in the northwest corner.  Jump onto the block and then onto
    the narrow ledge.  Go around the ledge to find another block [5,6].  Push the
    block against the far (northeast) wall.  (Note: The block must be to the left
    of the incline on the ledge above.)  Jump onto the block and then onto the
    narrow ledge.  A Precursor Orb [8] is located on the ledge directly ahead.
    Travel down the ledge to the right (southeast).  After turning the final
    corner, a red targeting symbol will appear on a column.  Punch the column to
    create a bridge.  Go across the bridge and down the steps [7].  Pick up the
    block on the platform and go back up the stairs.  Just before reaching the
    bridge, turn left.  Throw the block at the far column that has the targeting
    symbol.  This will cause the column to fall, creating a bridge.  Cross the
    bridge and pick up the block on the next platform.  Throw the block at the wall
    that is directly ahead.  Jump over the small gap to the next platform.  Turn
    left (northeast) and punch the indicated column to create a bridge.  Cross the
    bridge to reach the hut.  If the Titan Suit damage indicator reaches the
    maximum, the mission is a failure.
    
    Strategy: Get out of the Titan Suit to kill the enemies encountered.  These
    enemies will inflict significant damage on the Titan Suit before you can get
    close enough to destroy them.  The enemies will not damage the Titan Suit when
    Jak is not in it.  After the enemy is killed, return to the Titan Suit and
    continue.  When throwing the first stone at the column, be sure to be lined up
    straight across from the targeting symbol.

    Available: After the completion of 'Bring Life Seed to Haven Forest' mission.
    (Note: This mission begins immediately after completion of the 'Bring Life Seed
    to Haven Forest' mission.)
    
    Description: Krimzon Guard and Hover Guards will begin to attack.  Samos must
    be protected while he is communicating with the plants.  Eventually they will
    retreat and leave.  If Samos' health meter runs out, the mission is a failure.
    
    Strategy: Stand behind Samos and continually look at the left and right bridge.
    Do not move too far to one side since the Krimzon Guard will attack from both
    sides.  Continually keep shooting at them and use the rapid fire and/or aerial
    rapid fire techniques.  The dark bomb or dark blast (if already acquired and
    Dark Jak is available) can also be used to eliminate the Krimzon Guard in the
    immediate area.

    Available: After the completion of 'Catch Scouts in Haven Forest' mission.
    
    Description: When the mission begins, you will see a cinematic of a tanker
    crashing into the bazaar.  The tanker is filled with Metal Head Goons.  You and
    Ashelin must kill all of the creatures [1-8].  If Ashelin's health meter runs
    out, the mission is a failure.
    
    Strategy: Use the dark bomb or dark blast (if already acquired and Dark Jak is
    available) or the rapid-fire gun technique to quickly eliminate the enemies.
    
    Tip: You must collect the Metal Head Skull Gems before the last Metal Head is

    Description: Travel to the red Air Train icon indicating the Air Train station.
    The Air Train will take you to the lab entrance.  Enter the door that is to the
    west of the landing pad and go towards the elevator.  A Precursor Orb [1] is in
    the right (north) corner of the elevator room.  Once the elevator arrives at
    the bottom, go through the door and jump onto the conveyor belt.  At the
    bottom, numerous Krimzon Guards will be waiting.  Dive attack the button to the
    left (west) of the conveyor belt to disable the electrical field in the right
    (northeast) corner.  Go through the door and continue to the next conveyor
    belt.  On the right side of the belt is a red switch.  Use the Blaster or
    Vulcan Fury gun to shoot the switch to change it to blue and reverse the
    direction of the conveyor belt (shooting it again will change it again).  At
    the top of the conveyor belt, jump on the platform to the left (south), jump to
    the higher ledge and then to the lower level.  When reaching the lower level,
    numerous Robot Guards will attack.  After destroying all of them, several
    platforms will swing across the gap to provide a way to reach the far ledge.
    Cross the platforms to reach the ledge.  On the ledge, there is a valve.  Jump
    and spin kick the valve to swing the platforms back to their original position.
    Cross the platforms to reach the next ledge.  On the ledge, a Precursor Orb [2]
    is located behind the barrels and Krimzon Guard crates on the left (west) side
    of the ledge.  Travel across the ledge to the elevator.  Jump on the elevator
    and at the top, jump off the ledge.  Proceed across the ledge until reaching a
    conveyor belt with two moving poles with spinning blades on the bottom.  Go
    across the conveyor belts and jump over the blades.  At the end of the conveyor
    belt, jump to the second conveyor belt.  A Precursor Orb [3] is at the top of
    the conveyor belt.  Go down the conveyor belt (against its direction) and use
    the Blaster Gun to shoot the blocks with the design across the gap.  Doing so
    will drop them creating a platform.  Go to the end of the conveyor belt and
    jump onto the platforms.  Jump to the ledge and follow it to the third conveyor
    belt.  Proceed up the conveyor belt (again against its direction) and when
    reaching the peak, shoot the blocks with the design to lower another platform.
    Continue across conveyor belt and jump to the platform.  Proceed into the next
    room.  A Precursor Orb [4] is behind (north side) of the structure with the
    green tanks.  Go to the right (north) to the conveyor belt.  Shoot the switch
    and jump onto the belt.  At the top, jump onto the ledge.  Go up the next
    conveyor belt by continually jumping forward (the switch is located at the
    top).  At the top, jump over the gap to the next platform.  Shoot the blocks
    with the design to lower two platforms.  Jump onto the conveyor belt and
    continue to jump until reaching the first platform.  Jump to the second
    platform and then to the ledge.  Jump onto the next conveyor belt.  At the top,
    shoot the conveyor belt's switch located against the far wall and immediately
    jump to the next conveyor belt when the belt's direction changes.  Shoot the
    same switch again and ride the conveyor belt up to the ledge.  Jump onto the
    upper ledge.  On the ledge (west) side of the ledge is a switch protected by an
    electrical field and a conveyor belt directly ahead.  When the ledge is
    reached, numerous Robot Guards will attack.  Once they have all been destroyed,
    the electrical field will be gone.  Shoot the switch, go up the conveyor belt
    and jump to the ledge.  A Precursor Orb [5] is in the corner (northeast) of the
    ledge next to the wall.  Jump across the square platforms to the next ledge.
    Spin kick the valve on the ledge to swing the platforms around.  Jump across
    the platforms to the next ledge.  Repeat the same steps until reaching the
    final ledge.  Once the final ledge is reached, go around and find the door in
    the floor.  Dive attack the door to drop to the lower level.  Continue ahead
    and jump to the lower level.  When the middle of the area is reached, more
    Robot Guards will attack.  Once they have all been destroyed, a door will be
    opened.  Go through the door and jump onto the elevator.
    
    Strategy: When being attacked by the Robot Guards, stand in a corner of the
    area and use the aerial rapid fire technique to force them to open up.  When
    the spinning blades are encountered, when the blades begin to move toward,
    continually jump along the right side until reaching the structure.  The
    structure should be reached when the blades have moved away.  When the blades
    then begin to approach, jump over the "arm" and start jumping toward the second
    structure.  Repeat the same steps for the second set of spinning blades.

    5.10.1 'Destroy Equipment at Dig'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Escort Kid to Power Station' mission.
    
    Description: At the beginning of the mission, Kor will give you an Air Train
    pass.  Travel to the red Air Train icon indicating the Air Train station.  The
    Air Train will take you to the excavation site.  Enter the cave that is
    northwest of the landing pad and jump onto elevator.  Once the elevator arrives
    at the bottom, enter the tunnel and jump onto the ledge.  When you reach the
    end, you will see two Krimzon Guards on the ledge below.  These guards will
    throw dark eco grenades at you.  Once these guards have been killed, go through
    the tunnel on the left.  You will enter a large cave that has numerous grenade-
    throwing Krimzon Guards.  In the center of the cave is a large drill with 24
    large support cables.  Each set of cables is connected to a rod.  The goal is
    to use the Jet-Board and grind across the rod, which will break the support
    cables.  Once all of the cables have been broken, you will see a cinematic of
    the drill exploding.  Go back to the elevator and take the Air Train back to
    the city.
    
    Strategy: Before attempting to break the cables, kill all of the Krimzon Guards
    in the cave.  There are 8 sets of guards in the cave.  The first set is just
    after entering the cave.  The second set is on a ledge on the far right (east)
    wall of the cave.  The third set is at the bottom of a hill on the northeast
    side.  The fourth set is across the bridge on the south side.  The fifth set is
    on the platform on the south side.  The sixth set is on the lower platform on
    the west side.  The seventh set is on the upper platform on the west side.  The
    eighth set is on the platform next to the drill (on the north side).  Killing
    the guards first makes it considerably easier since you do not have to worry
    about dodging grenades while breaking the cables.  When breaking the cables, do
    not get onto the Jet-Board until directly next to the rod.  After grinding the
    rod, immediately get off the Jet-Board.  This will prevent accidentally
    overshooting the ledge and falling into the lava.
    
    Tip: You CANNOT use the Jet-Board to travel across the lava.
    
    Tip: The Krimzon Guards will not throw their grenades while you are close to
    them.
    
    Tip: Located in the cave are barrels of dark eco.  When they are shot, they
    will explode.  These can be used to kill nearby guards.
    
    Tip: There are yellow pads located in the cave that will boost you up in the
    air to the next ledge while on the Jet-Board.

    5.10.2 'Destroy Drill Platform Tower'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Destroy Eggs in Strip Mine' mission.
    
    Description: Enter the warp gate at the power station.  Get into the Titan Suit
    located behind the warp gate at the drill platform.  Punch the door to break it
    (requires 3 hits).  Go through the door to the elevator.  Once the elevator
    arrives at the bottom, proceed to the walkway with the three laser beams
    periodically shooting across (the first and last beam fire at the same time and
    the middle beam shoots when the other two turn off).  Travel across the walkway
    and punch the door to break it.  In the next room, there is a catwalk leading
    to an elevator directly ahead and two platforms that collapse once touched to
    the left.  Walk across the catwalk to the elevator and get out of the Titan
    Suit.  Proceed back across the catwalk and jump to the collapsible platforms to
    reach the ledge (a double jump/spin kick combination will have to be done to
    reach the ledge).  Jump to the next ledge [1,2].  Spin kick the flashing red
    switch to raise the elevator with the Titan Suit on it.  Get into the Titan
    Suit and punch the next door.  Jump across the collapsible platforms to the
    next ledge.  At the next ledge, once the fire goes out, jump to it and then
    onto the following ledge.  Jump across the two fire ledges with the collapsible
    platform in the middle to the next area.  Get out of the Titan Suit and jump to
    the next section either by doing a rolling jump or a double jump/spin kick
    combination [3].  Spin kick the flashing red switch to raise a platform.  Jump
    across the raised platform to the previous ledge and get back into the Titan
    Suit.  Jump across the raised platform to the ledge.  Jump over the gap to the
    next section [4].  Repeat for the next gap.  After jumping over the gap, jump
    over the fire and go to the end of the platform.  To the left is a catwalk with
    lasers periodically shooting across (the first two, one high and one middle,
    fire at the same time and the third shoots after the first two).  Proceed
    across the catwalk and jump to the next ledge.  The next section contains a
    long section of heat platforms (2 sets) with 2 collapsible platforms on each
    side of it.  Cross the heat platforms to the next ledge.  Turn left (west) and
    go through the door to the elevator.  Once arriving at the top, proceed into
    the control room [5-9].  Each power console (8 in first room, 2 in adjoining
    room) must be punched to be destroyed.  Once the last one has been destroyed,
    you will automatically get out of the Titan Suit and have 1:35 minutes to
    return to the tower's entrance.  If the timer reaches 0:00 before the tower is
    exited, the exit portion of the mission will be restarted.
    
    Strategy for first laser beam set: Walk as close as possible to the first one
    and when it turns off, walk past it.  Repeat for the other two lasers.  Only
    punch the door immediately after the third laser turns off or it will hit the
    suit.
    
    Strategy for first fire platform: After going across the first fire platform to
    the ledge, wait until the fire is just about to go out and jump as far as
    possible on to the platform.  Immediately jump to the collapsible platform,
    then onto the second fire platform and then onto the ledge.  The key is to not
    hesitate when jumping.  If done correctly, you will be jumping off the second
    fire platform just as it turns on.
    
    Strategy for second laser beam set: Walk as close as possible to the first two
    and when they turn off, go the edge and jump across the gap.  When landing do
    not move since the third laser beam will be on.  Once it goes off, proceed past
    it and jump to the ledge.
    
    Strategy for long row of heat platforms: Wait until the first heat platform's
    fire is just about to go out and jump as far as possible on to the platform.
    Quickly move ahead and jump to the second (last) collapsible platform on the
    left before the fire turns on.  After jumping to the collapsible platform,
    immediately jump to the second set of heat platforms (which should just be
    turning off).  Quickly move across and jump to the final ledge.
    
    Strategy for tower exit: Destroy the power consoles closest to the door last to
    save several seconds.  Once the timer begins, do not stop running.  The very
    edge of each fire platforms can be walked on without getting hurt.  In
    addition, double jumps will be higher than the fires, allowing for some of the
    platforms to be jumped while running.
    
    Tip: The Titan Suit can withstand some damage.  This is most useful when
    jumping over the fire platforms in case the jump is mistimed or done too early
    or too late.  If a choice must be made between taking damage to the suit or
    falling off a platform, choose the suit damage since falling will force the
    mission to be restarted.

    5.11.1 'Get Seal Piece at Water Slums'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Drain Sewers to Find Statue' mission.
    (Note: This mission is available shortly after leaving the sewers in the 'Drain
    Sewers to Find Statue' mission and does not require going to bazaar first.)
    
    Description: Travel to the water slums to find the seal piece (indicated by an
    orange, coin icon on the on-screen map and yellow column of light in the city).
    After obtaining the seal piece, you must take it out of the water slums.
    Transports will begin arriving and drop off Krimzon Guards that will attack.
    These transports are equipped with an auto-aim laser gun on its underside.
    Travel over the walkways to reach the edge of the water slums.  Falling off the
    path into the water will result in immediate death from the city defense
    system.
    
    Strategy: When the attack begins, equip the Vulcan Fury gun.  After killing all
    of the Krimzon Guards dropped off from the first transport, turn left down the
    first walkway.  When the end of the path is reached, turn right.  Shortly after
    turning, there will be a fork in the path.  Take the left fork.  At the end of
    the path, turn right and continue straight past the hut.  Continue around the
    hut and take the right fork in the path.  Turn left at the next path.  Turn
    right at the next path.  Continue straight down the walkway to leave the water
    slums.  Do not proceed down a path where a transport is dropping off Krimzon
    Guards until after it leaves (to prevent being shot by the auto-aim laser gun).
    Once all of the Krimzon Guards from the transport have been dropped off, move
    as far down the path as possible towards the next transport.  Watch the on-
    screen map for the Krimzon Guards since they will also be approaching from the
    rear.
    
    Tip: When being shot at from behind, do not adjust the view since the time to
    do so could result in being hit.  Instead, simply turn toward the direction
    where the shot came from and shoot.  The gun's auto-aim should kill the guard
    that was shooting.

    5.11.2 'Rescue Lurkers for Brutter'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Protect Samos in Haven Forest' mission.
    
    Description: Use a hover vehicle to locate the first Lurker transport.  Destroy
    the transport.  Once this is done, a Krimzon Guard alert will begin.  Put the
    hover vehicle into low hover and the Lurker will climb on.  Proceed to Lurker
    hideout.  Once you arrive, the Lurker will get off.  Repeat this for the
    remaining five Lurkers.
    
    Strategy: Use the Vulcan Fury gun to destroy the transports.  Approach the
    transport from the rear and wait to shoot at it until very close and then rapid
    fire to destroy it.  Otherwise, the transport will start to speed away once it
    is shot and the Krimzon Guard alert will make it more difficult to destroy the
    transport.  Once a Lurker gets onto the hover vehicle, begin moving immediately
    to minimize damage taken from Krimzon Guard shots.  If the hover vehicle is
    severely damaged (i.e., hover vehicle is on fire or smoke coming from it),
    change to a new one before destroying the next transport.
    
    Tip: There are three hideouts and each is for two of the Lurkers.  The Lurker's
    hideout is in the same section of the city as the transport carrying the
    Lurker.
    
    Tip: For the Lurkers in the northwest section of the city, use the waterway to
    reach the hideout to avoid the traffic and the Krimzon Guards.
    
    Tip: Only large hover vehicles can be used.  A Lurker will not get onto a
    small, 1-seater.

    5.12.1 'Hunt Haven Forest Metal Heads'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Get Seal Piece at Water Slums' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the mountain icon indicating the temple entrance and
    enter the warp gate.  Go around the corner and jump on the left (west) floating
    platform.  Jump off the platform when it reaches the ledge at Haven Forest.
    The objective is to kill the 30 Metal Head Stealths in the forest.  Proceed
    into the first section of the forest [1-11].  Follow the stream east to the
    second section of forest [12-14].  Continue following the stream south until it
    ends at the third section [15-17].  Proceed up the grass ramp next to the wood
    structure to the final section [18-30].  In order to exit the forest, either
    retrace the route taken to reach this section or use the tunnel in the west
    part of the forest.  Once back at the forest entrance, jump up the ledges and
    then jump onto the floating platform to return to the temple mountain.  Jump
    off the platform to the grass ledge.  Follow the ledge to the warp gate to
    return to the city.
    
    Note: During the mission, the Metal Head Stealths will move so the number of
    Metal Head Skull Gems found in a section may vary.
    
    Strategy: There are several ways determine the current location of the Metal
    Head Stealths.  First (and best) is to use the Show Map option from the Options
    ring.  The Metal Head Stealth's current location is indicated by a blinking
    green dot.  Secondly, observe the location of where the dark eco shots
    originated.  Third, watch where the gun's auto-aim is pointing.  Always keep
    moving to make it more difficult for the enemies to hit you, especially since
    there are no health packs in the forest.
    
    Tip: If you die before killing all the Metal Head Stealths, reload the game.
    Do NOT restart the mission!  The reason is that any Metal Head Skull Gems
    collected for the killed enemies will not be visible on them when the mission
    is restarted.  This increases the difficulty in being able to see them.

    5.12.2 'Escort Sig in Underport'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Find Sig in Underport' mission.
    (Note: This mission begins immediately after completion of the 'Find Sig in
    Underport' mission.)
    
    Description: Follow Sig into the next room.  The room will contain two blocks
    on the floor and two holes for them to be placed.  Doing a punch or spin kick
    to any side of the block will roll it in that direction.  There is a time limit
    of approximately 10 seconds to roll both blocks into the holes.  The blocks
    will "blink" faster as the time runs out.  If the time limit expires, the
    blocks will reset to the beginning.  Once the blocks are in the holes, a door
    will open.  Follow Sig through the door and into the tunnel on the right.  A
    Centipede will begin to chase.  Jump over the platforms and up the ledge.  Jump
    onto each of the moving blocks and then onto the sliding platform.  Jump off
    the sliding platform to the ledge and then over the electrical field.  The
    ledge will collapse and the Centipede will fall.  Jump over the ledge to the
    next block puzzle.  The time limit on this puzzle is only approximately 5
    seconds and the block will explode if the time limit expires.  After the block
    is in the hole, a door will open to the left.  Follow Sig across the ledge and
    jump to the lower level for the third block puzzle.  While solving this puzzle,
    Sig will fight the Metal Heads that attack.  If Sig health meter runs out, the
    mission is a failure.  After solving the puzzle, jump on the higher ledge to
    collect the Metal Head Skull Gems [1-6].  Follow Sig through the door and equip
    the Blaster Gun.  The Centipede will begin to chase again.  Run under the first
    electrical field and jump over the remaining two.  Shoot the upside-down
    platform, jump onto it and then onto the ledge.  Jump on the sliding platform
    and then jump to the next ledge.  Shoot the two upside-down platforms, jump
    onto each of them and then onto the ledge.  Jump over the electrical field and
    then jump on the long platform.  Run across the long platform and jump over the
    electrical field in the middle.  Jump to the final ledge.  Follow Sig and jump
    down the opening to the lower level.  Follow Sig and jump down the opening to
    the bottom level.  When reaching the bottom level, go across the catwalk (Sig
    will not lead OR follow).  After the cinematic, go across the catwalk and
    follow the ledge to the tunnel leading to the elevator.

    5.13.1 'Beat Metal Head Mash Game'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Beat Krew in Weapons Lab' mission.
    
    Description: The arcade game consists of eight holes where Metal Heads will
    appear.  The four holes on the left correspond to the directional arrow keys on
    the game controller.  The four holes on the right correspond to the triangle,
    square, circle and X buttons on the game controller.  When a Metal Head
    appears, press the corresponding button to have Daxter "whack" it.  Each
    colored metal head has a different point value.  Gray ones are worth 10 points
    and gold ones are worth 50.  If a red one is hit, no points are awarded and
    Daxter is stunned briefly preventing Metal Heads from being hit.  If a Metal
    Head disappears before being hit, it is counted as a miss.  The goal is to
    achieve 1500 points.  If 20 misses occur, the mission is a failure.
    
    Strategy: Concentrate on hitting the gold Metal Heads when more than one are
    available to be hit.
    
    Tip: After the mission ends, Haven City is being overrun by Metal Heads.  Many
    can be found and killed to obtain additional Metal Head Skull Gems if needed.

    5.13.2 'Find Sig in Underport'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Beat Metal Head Mash Game' mission.
    
    Description: Travel to the underport icon and walk onto the elevator.  After
    reaching the bottom, get into the Titan Suit.  The area will fill with water.
    An air supply indicator will be displayed on the screen.  The air supply lasts
    for approximately 20 seconds and if it runs out, the mission is a failure.
    Located throughout the mission will be places to replenish the air supply
    (indicated by a blue column of light with bubbles rising in the middle).  The
    air supply is refilled when walking over the bubbles.  After the area fills
    with water, go through the door into the next area.  Avoid the mine and go to
    the bubbles to refill the air supply.  Punch the next door to break it and
    enter the area.  Continue along the path, while avoiding the mine, and go up
    the stairs.  At the top of the stairs, walk over to refill the air supply
    [1,2].  To the right (southwest) is an opening.  Jump down the opening to the
    lower level.  Punch the door in the corner (east) and enter the next room.
    Punch the two mines and go to the air refill location.  After replenishing the
    air supply, go through the door on the right (south).  Turn right and go toward
    the air refill location, punching the mines and Metal Head Squids in the path
    [3,4].  Go through the door into the next area.  Turn left (southeast) and
    punch the door.  Go through the door and down the steps to the air refill
    location.  In this room are four platforms connected to a chain.  Punch each
    platform to release it and raise it to the surface.  On the left (northeast)
    side of the room is a platform.  Jump onto the platform to rise to the surface.
    Jump onto the first floating platform and then quickly jump to the other three
    (since they will start to sink with the weight of the Titan Suit) and then to
    the ledge.  Jump down the opening to the lower level.  A Precursor Orb [1] is
    located next to the right (northwest) wall.  Punch the door on the left
    (southeast) side.  Go across the narrow catwalk [5,6] and walk to the air
    refill location.  Continue into the next room [7,8].  Turn right (northwest)
    and proceed through the area.  Go through the next door to the air refill
    location.  Jump to the platform behind the air supply that will rise to the
    top.  After reaching the top, jump to the next platform and then jump over the
    large gap to the ledge.  Continue through the door to the air refill location
    in the next room [9].  Go through the door on the left (southwest).  After
    going through the door, the water will drain.  Get out of the Titan Suit and go
    through the door.  Roll and jump across the large gap to reach Sig.
    
    Strategy: When entering a new area, concentrate on getting to the air refill
    location before attacking the enemies.  Before leaving an area, make sure the
    air supply is full.

    6.1 Underground Missions
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Located throughout the city are screens containing a light blue question mark
    on a dark blue background.  These screens are the starting location for the
    Underground missions.  Once the screen's mission is available, the screen
    changes to a green underground emblem on a pink background.
    
    *******************************************************************************
    6.1.1 Ring Challenges
    *******************************************************************************
    
    General Description: Get onto the Hover Racer near the screen.  A pink ring and
    a timer set to 0:14 will appear.  The objective is to reach the ring before the
    time limit expires.  After traveling through the ring, 3 seconds is added to
    the time remaining (7 seconds if the time remaining is 1 second) and the next
    pink ring will appear.  If the timer reaches 0:00, the mission is a failure.
    
    General Strategy: Avoid collisions with other vehicles and pedestrians since
    this will slow down the vehicle and possibly prevent the next ring from being
    reached.  Be sure to be lined up correctly with the ring since backtracking is
    not possible due to the time limit.
    
    General Tip: Flying through the exact center of the ring is not required.
    Simply touching any part of the ring will count as traveling through it.
    
    General Tip: The missions are easier at night since the rings are easier to
    see.

    Description: Get into the hover vehicle next to the screen.  The timer will
    start counting down from 1:00 minute.  Fly to the first fighter.  Once the
    fighter gets into the hover vehicle, the timer will reset to a random amount.
    The fighter will only get into the hover vehicle if it is in the low hover
    zone.  The Krimzon Guards will begin attacking from the ground, from hover
    vehicles and turrets throughout the city will be activated.  Fly the fighter to
    his safe house.  Repeat for the remaining three fighters.  If the timer reaches
    0:00 or the fighter is killed, the mission is a failure.
    
    Strategy: Once a fighter reaches the safe house, quickly change hover vehicles
    if there is currently a lot of damage (i.e., hover vehicle is on fire or smoke
    coming from it).  As soon as the fighter get in or out, quickly start moving to
    save time.  When approaching a fighter for pickup, be careful not to run him
    over since this will cost time while he is getting up (and may possible kill
    him).
    
    Tip: Only 2-seat hover vehicles can be used.  A fighter will not get into a 1-
    seater.

    Screen Location: North side of the northern most pathway, north of the building
    surrounded by water in the center of the city.
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Destroy 5 Hellcat Cruisers' mission.
    
    Description: Collect the 60 green eco within the 2:00 minute time limit.  If
    the timer reaches 0:00, the mission is a failure.
    
    Strategy: Get on the Jet-Board and turn right (east) from the screen.  When
    reaching the large area, turn right (west).  Go to the second bridge and turn
    left (south).  Go across the bridge and turn left (west).  When reaching the
    next bridge, turn right to pick up the single eco and then left (north) to
    cross the bridge.  Turn right (east) and then right (south) again.  Turn right
    (west) at the bridge.  After retrieving the eco on the bridge, turn around and
    re-cross the bridge.  Turn right (south) and at the next bridge, turn right
    (west).  After crossing the bridge, turn left (south) and then right (west).
    Proceed down the path and cross the bridge.  After crossing, turn right
    (north).  Turn right (west) at the first bridge.  After collecting the eco on
    the bridge, turn around and re-cross the bridge.  Turn right (north) and at the
    next bridge.  At the end of the bridge, turn right (south) and then immediately
    left (east) to go up the stairs.  Proceed straight and turn right (south) at
    the corner.  At the second set of stairs, turn left (east) to get the single
    eco.  Turn around and go through the hallway.  Turn left (south) before
    reaching the stairs and follow the walkway around the building to collect the
    remaining eco.
    
    Tip: Be sure to retrieve all of the eco in the current area before moving to
    the next.
    
    Tip: The eco does not have to be traveled directly over to be collected.
    Simply getting close to it will attract it to you.
    
    Tip: The mission is easier at night since the eco is easier to see.
    
    NOTE: There is a glitch in the game that occasionally causes the eco indicators
    to disappear off the on-screen map, making it impossible to find the remaining
    eco.  In addition, the number of ecos remaining is not immediately updated
    after an eco is collected.

    6.1.7 'City Race'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Screen Location: West side of the port near the Hip Hog Saloon.
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Beat Erol in Race Challenge' and 'Port Ring
    Challenge' missions.
    
    Description: Get onto the Hover Racer outside of the Hip Hog Saloon.  You will
    race a member of the Underground through the city in the low hover zone only.
    Located in the city are blue accelerator rings.  These rings define the race's
    course and give a boost of speed when traveled through.  Each ring must be
    traveled through in order.  Several rings require jumping in order to pass
    through them.  If the rings are traveled out of order (including going through
    the same ring twice) or stray too far off course, the mission is a failure.
    
    General Strategy: This is more of a race against the clock than against the
    opponent and is the EXACT same course from the 'Beat Erol in Race Challenge'
    mission.  However, in order to achieve the prize times, the course must be
    traveled perfectly.  This requires the Hover Racer to be going full speed for
    the entire time (including the corners) and no structures being hit.  It also
    means that every turn (especially those with accelerator rings) is traveled
    through using the "best line" (i.e., taking the turn wide and then pushing hard
    on the left analog stick to turn while at full speed) to minimize the travel
    distance.  Since the Hover Racer does not have a tight turn radius, the turn
    must be made wide and started earlier than would be expected in order to
    maintain the best line through the turn.  This also means the course must be
    memorized so the on-screen map does not have to be referred to for the next
    accelerator ring location.  If slightly out of the best line for a corner, the
    accelerator can be released (and the brake momentarily applied) to help
    maneuver around the corner, but needs to be reapplied as quickly as possible or
    too much time will be lost.  The pedestrians along the course must be avoided
    as much as possible since hitting them may knock the Hover Racer off course
    enough that an accelerator ring is missed or the best line cannot be achieved
    for the next turn.
    
    Specific Strategy: After passing through the first accelerator ring, jump
    through the gap to the right of the oncoming bridge for the shortest path to
    the next ring.  Two places on the course require a jump to reach an accelerator
    ring and then landing in the canal system (the first is after passing the
    palace and the second is after the S-turns on the street after exiting the
    canal).  Just before reaching the ring, release the accelerator and jump so the
    trajectory has already started down into the canal when hitting the ring.
    After passing through the ring, immediately push down on the left analog stick.
    This will prevent hitting the next bridge over the canal.
    
    Tip: After traveling up an incline, the Hover Racer will jump and temporarily
    be in the high hover zone.  This is dangerous since it is possibly to crash
    into another hover vehicle.  Release the accelerator just before the starting
    up the incline and push the left analog stick forward at the top of the incline
    (to make the front of the Hover Racer point toward the ground).  This will
    minimize or eliminate the jump and the loss of time.
    
    Tip: Flying through the exact center of a ring is not required.  Simply
    touching any part of the ring will count as traveling through it.

    6.1.8 'Destroy Bombots'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Screen Location: Southeast corner of the west bazaar, north of the entrance to
    the south garden area.
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Rescue Lurkers for Brutter' (Brutter's) and
    'Southwest Bazaar Precursor Orb Search' missions.
    
    Description: This mission is similar to the 'Protect Hideout from Bombots'
    mission.  Locate and destroy the three bombots in the city.  The bombots have a
    proximity defense system that will shoot anything that comes near it with a
    laser.  Use a weapon to destroy the bombot.  When it has taken heavy damage, it
    will start beeping which indicates it is about to explode.  Once the first
    bombot is fired at, a Krimzon Guard alert will start.
    
    Strategy: Equip the Vulcan Fury gun and get onto the hover vehicle outside of
    the hideout.  Travel to the bombot in the port area first.  Stay outside of its
    weapon range and approach it from the rear.  Quickly move inside of its weapon
    range and fire at it.  Once it is destroyed, proceed to the next one that is in
    the slums area.  After destroying it, quickly proceed to the last bombot and
    destroy it.

    6.1.9 'Port Race'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Screen Location: East side of the port at the end of the path leading to the
    tower islands in the middle.
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Win Class 1 Race at Stadium' and 'Port
    Precursor Orb Search' missions.
    
    Description: Get onto the Hover Racer near the screen.  You will then race a
    member of the Underground around the port.  Located on the course are blue
    accelerator rings.  These rings define the race's course and give a boost of
    speed when traveled through.  Each ring does NOT have to be traveled through.
    Several rings require jumping in order to pass through them.  The race consists
    of 3 laps through the accelerator ring course.  If you stray too far off course
    or fall into the water, the mission is a failure.
    
    Strategy: This is more of a race against the clock than against the opponent.
    Even though not all of the rings need to be traveled through, they should be
    since they give a boost of speed and can decrease the overall race time.
    Several of the rings are in the corner while making a turn.  Be sure to be
    lined up to not crash into a wall after the boost and jump across the corner to
    the ring.
    
    Tip: Flying through the exact center of the ring is not required.  Simply
    touching any part of the ring will count as traveling through it.

    6.1.10 'Cleanup Dark Eco Spill'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Screen Location: North garden area next to the wall on the east side of the
    path.
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Destroy Metal Kor at Nest' and 'North
    Garden Precursor Orb Search' missions.
    
    Description: Collect the 30 dark eco within the 2:00 minute time limit.  If the
    timer reaches 0:00, the mission is a failure.
    
    Strategy: Get on the Jet-Board and collect the eco to the left (west) of the
    screen.  When it has all been collected, turn around and go to the east and
    then south to collect.  Some of the eco is between the rows of plants.
    
    Tip: Be sure to retrieve all of the eco in the current area before moving to
    the next.
    
    Tip: The eco does not have to be traveled directly over to be collected.
    Simply getting close to it will attract it to you.
    
    Tip: The mission is easier at night since the eco is easier to see.

    6.2 Gun Courses
    *******************************************************************************
    
    General Strategy: Shoot the targets as quickly as possible since this results
    in a higher point value.  Be sure to hit all gold targets that appear since
    these have a higher point value.  Proceed slowly and do not get too far ahead
    of the targets since some of the gold ones will appear behind and may be
    missed.  Be careful not to hit non-enemy targets since this will deduct points
    from the score.  Try to hit the Krimzon Guard crates with weapon fire so you do
    not need to punch or spin kick them when needing ammunition and can continue
    shooting.  Execute a spin kick if a target appears close to your position since
    points will be awarded for this as well.
    
    General Tip: Do not attempt these until the maximum amount of ammunition has
    been doubled (after completing Krew's 'Rescue Lurkers for Brutter' mission) or
    unlimited ammunition has been achieved (155 Precursor Orbs found).  This allows
    being able to concentrate on the targets without having to worry about
    reloading.

    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Beat Blaster Gun Course' mission.

    6.2.3 Vulcan Fury Gun
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After collecting 75 Precursor Orbs.
    
    Strategy: If infinite ammo has been achieved, do not stop shooting.  Otherwise,
    shoot controlled bursts since it is easy to deplete the ammunition.  In this
    course, it is very easy to get ahead of the targets.  Sometimes the gold
    targets will appear behind you.  There are several sections where multiple
    targets are coming at one time.  For these sections, stand in the middle and
    fire in a circle.  This will hit most of them.  When reaching the final section
    of the course, be sure to have the maximum amount of ammunition.  Many targets
    will start appearing and with a lot of them being gold ones (especially in the
    last target row).

    the Peace Maker ammunition is used up, you will have to switch to the Blaster
    Gun.  The largest targets can only be destroyed with the Peace Maker.  Let the
    Peace Maker charge as much as possible and wait to fire until there are
    numerous targets in view.

    ******* WARNING ***************** WARNING ********************* WARNING *******
    There is a glitch in the game that if this mission is attempted before
    completing the 'Defend Stadium' mission, Keira will not appear at the stadium
    for that mission.  If this occurs, the remaining storyline missions cannot be
    completed.
    ******* WARNING ***************** WARNING ********************* WARNING *******
    
    Description: Go to the stadium event select board on the most northern path
    near the stadium.  To reach the board, go to the north stairs of the stadium.
    Turn around (east) and go across the area to another set of stairs.  Go up the
    stairs and turn left (north).  The board is located at the end of the path.
    Press the triangle button and select the event.  Go to the icon indicating the
    stadium entrance.  Enter the stadium and proceed to the course.  Use the
    various moves on any part of the course to receive points in the 1:30 minute
    time limit.  Multiple move combinations are worth a higher point value.
    
    Strategy: Keep performing tricks as quickly as possible.  Just keep pushing the
    buttons for the moves since you do not have time to think about which ones are
    being done.  Use the large ramps to get a lot of "air" and perform multiple
    tricks while in the air (which will give more points).  Simply touching a rail
    counts as a grinding trick (you do not have to actually grind across it).  You
    can get a lot of points by jumping on a rail, jumping and doing a trick,
    landing on the rail again, jumping and doing another trick, etc.  It is
    possible to receive several thousand points for these combinations since the
    points are not awarded until the ground is touched.  The longer you can go
    without touching the ground while doing tricks, the more points will be
    received.

    There is a glitch in the game that if any of these missions are attempted
    before completing the 'Defend Stadium' mission, Keira will not appear at the

    ******* WARNING ***************** WARNING ********************* WARNING *******
    
    Description: Go to the stadium event select board on the most northern path
    near the stadium.  To reach the board, go to the north stairs of the stadium.
    Turn around (east) and go across the area to another set of stairs.  Go up the
    stairs and turn left (north).  The board is located at the end of the path.
    Press the triangle button and select the event.  Go to the icon indicating the
    stadium entrance.  Proceed to the Hover Racer.  Once you get on, you will be
    dropped down to the starting line for a race.  The race consists of 5 laps.
    Located around the course are pink turbo boosts.  A turbo boost will give the
    Hover Racer an extra boost of speed.  The Hover Racer can hold up to three
    turbo boosts.
    
    General Strategy: Unlike the races in the storyline, these races REQUIRE all of
    the track's shortcuts to be taken; otherwise the goal times will not be met.
    It is important to get ahead of the other racers early since their bumping into
    you will cause you to lose speed and possibly miss a shortcut.  It is important
    to get and use a turbo boost on every opportunity.  There is a turbo boost
    after the starting line on most of the courses.  This can help get ahead of the
    other racers.
    
    General Tip: Using a turbo boost while turning will help in maneuvering around
    tight corners.

    (the red lights can be seen in the distance), move to the right side of the
    track.  Aim for the second flashing light on the left with the direction of
    travel being toward the tunnel across the gap.  Just before reaching the edge,
    use the turbo boost if available and when reaching the edge, jump the gap.  If
    the jump is done too early, you will crash and explode into the wall on the
    other side of the gap.  If the direction traveling when making the jump is not
    pointing into the tunnel, you will crash into tunnel wall and possibly destroy
    the Hover Racer (but definitely incur considerable damage).

    6.5 'Onin's Game'
    *******************************************************************************
    
    Available: After the completion of 'Beat Onin's Game' mission.
    
    Description: Go to Onin's tent located in the southeast corner of the bazaar
    (section of the city where no vehicles can travel), east of the southeast
    corner of the palace.  Just like in the 'Beat Onin's Game' mission, Onin will
    throw symbols in the air corresponding to the triangle, square, circle and X
    buttons on the game controller.  While the symbol is in the air, press the
    appropriate button.  Points are awarded for pressing the correct button as
    quickly as possible.  Higher points are awarded for earlier button presses.  If
    the symbol falls to the ground, no points are awarded and it counts as a miss.
    If the wrong button is pressed, penalty points are assessed and it counts as a
    miss.  The goal is to achieve 1000 points.  If 20 misses occur, the mission is
    a failure.
    
    Strategy: Be sure you know the location of the buttons before beginning since
    you will not be able to look at the controller, especially when the symbols are
    appearing quickly.  Since some symbols are thrown higher than others are, press
    the button for the lower symbols first.  When the symbols begin appearing
    quickly, focus and concentrate on pressing the buttons in the order they are
    thrown.
    
    Tip: If the SELECT button is pressed, the game is paused.  This allows the
    current symbols in the air to be seen and then when the game is continued, the
    correct buttons can be quickly pressed.  This trick can be repeated to aid in
