(X). Is the best ASCII doodle I could do of X.

(D). Is a Door.

(T). Is a Treasure Gem, unlike normal treasure chests, these need to be broken 
     with a Dash to get the goodies inside, kind of like a pinata.

(M). Is the Minimap. Blue dots are treasure, Blue rectangles are doors and the
     the word IN shows you where you entered the room from. Zoom in with the 
     Z-button. Also it can doubles as a Compass, The top is North, bottom is 
     South, left is West and right is East.

(S). Is a Save Point, kind of looks like a trash can. You can save your 
     progress here and, if you're out on a mission, warp back to HQ from
     them.

(1). Is the Command Navi.

(2). Is the Action Cursor, it shows you whos turn it is.

(3). Is the Data Cockpit.

(E). Are enemy units, up to four can be on screen at once.

(P). Is your Party, you can only have 3 members in your party.


==============================================================================
 3.1 Command Navi [NAVI-LINK]
==============================================================================

This H.U.D (Heads-Up Display) shows your equipped Sub-Weapons, how much WE 
they use up and other controls.

Pressing B opens the menu screen where you can select from a list:

Sub-Tanks  (Heals various amounts of LE)
Items      (Self-explanitory)
Defense    (Defends for one turn, blocks status effects, WE gain halved)
Hyper Mode (Have your character shift into Hyper Mode for a limited time)
Run        (escape from battle, can fail)
Analyse    (View enemy information, needs Analizer Force Metal equipped)

X/Y Button - uses the equipped Sub-Weapons, provided you have the neccessary 
             WE to use them, Sub-Weapons will not use up your turn, but you
             can't enter the menu afterwards.

A Button - uses your main attack and ends your turn.

R Button - when highlighted, will use that party member's Action Trigger,
           a special super powerful attack or ability, also ends your turn.

Z Button - uses whatever shortcut you've asigned to it so you don't have to
           manually open the menu to use that function.

==============================================================================
 3.2 Data Cockpit [DATA-LINK]
==============================================================================

This shows the names of your current party members, their Life Energy (LE) 
and Weapon Energy (WE) and Turn Order.

LE - is this games HP, if it hits 0 that party member is KOed, restore LE with
     Sub Tanks, Cinnamon's Action Trigger or sleep in a Maintenance Bed. Also
     your LE is refilled automatically when you level up.

WE - is this games MP, party members start with an initial WE and gain an 
     additional +25 WE at the start of their turn.

L Button - brings up a list of reserve party members you can 
           swap in and out for.

Turn Order - is displayed in the (__) bubbles. Either a party member's picture
             will be in the (__), or for enemy units E1, E2, E3 and E4, to 
             indicate whos turn is next. Also the (__) will raise or lower to 
             show how much LE that unit has remaining.

==============================================================================
 3.3 Final Strike [FINS-LINK]
==============================================================================

The Final Strike is a special attack that can only be performed under certain 
conditions.

- You can only use a Final Strike while you have 3 healthy party members.

- When you have 3 party members a small bar will appear over enemy units.
  This bar represents their current LE, if you manage to lower their LE into 
  the red without destroying them you will be prompted for a Final Strike.

- You have a couple seconds to confirm the Strike with A

- During the Strike you'll have a limited amount of time, represented as a 
  blue bar at the top of your screen, to rapidly mash the A, X, and, Y buttons 
  to inflict massive damage with all three party members.

- If the words "BREAKDOWN" are displayed the enemy is defeated and a new 
  target should be selected, if one is available, by pressing Left or Right on
  the Control Stick or D-pad. 

- Depending on how many hits and damage you do, you'll gain bonus FME when the
  battle ends. 

- S-type Characters can launch about 10 Ultimate Missiles in a typical four 
  second Final Strike (when you Final Strike only one enemy).
  C-type Characters (X-Fire, Zero, Massimo, and Marino) will only launch 2 
  Missiles before getting up close to the enemy.

- A Character's Main Weapon Hits during a 4 second period are as follows:
  X                      = 5
  X-Fire                 = 40
  Ultimate Armor         = (untested)
  Absolute Zero          = (untested)
  Zero                   = 6
  Axl (holding one gun)  = 4
  Axl (holding two guns) = 10
  Spider                 = 10
  Massimo                =  2
  Marino                 =  8
  Cinnamon               = 18
 

- Also depending on the number of enemies destroyed the character who 
  initiated the Final Strike will recover bonus WE. The numbers are:
  1 Enemy   = 25% WE
  2 Enemies = 35% WE
  3 Enemies = 45% WE
  4 Enemies = 55% WE

- You can increase the time for a Final Strike by including more enemies in 
  the Strike. Do this by knocking multiple enemies into the red with a 
  multi-target target attack, like X's Charge Shot.

- To maximize the number of hits in a Final Strike use characters with S-type
  attacks, like X's Buster and Axl's Blasters. The best Final Strike party is
  X, Axl, and Cinnamon.

 4. Attack Type, Elemental Resistance, and Status Effects. [AERS-LINK]
==============================================================================
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Attacks come in two flavors, S and C. S-type attacks are long ranged 
projectile-based attacks, like X's X-Buster Shots. C-type attacks are close
range melee attacks, like Zero's Z Saber. C-type also have poor accuracy
against Air-type enemies.

S-type attacks are effected by the Shield stat.
C-type attacks are effected by the Armor stat.


In addition to Type, attacks also come in 3 elements:
Fire, Water, and Thunder.

These elements follow the usual Rock/Paper/Scissors deal. 
Fire beats Thunder, Thunder beats Water, and Water beats Fire.

Elemental Resistance governs how much or how little damage a character takes
from attacks of that element and come in 7 Levels:

Elemental Resistance Levels.
0: 200% damage (target takes 2x damage)
1: 150% damage (target takes 1.5x damage)
2: 100% damage (target takes normal damage)
3: 75% damage  (target takes .75 damage)
4: 50% damage  (target takes half damage)
5: 25% damage  (target takes .25 damage)
6: Nulls       (target takes no damage)
7: Absorbs     (damage is converted into LE)

NOTE: There isn't any way that I know of to reach Level 6. Equipping Force
Metal that effects Elemental Resistance Levels cannot raise the level higher 
than 5.

Finally there are a number of negative Status Effects, most are generally
harmless and useless to attempt to inflict on the enemy yourself. Status
Effects can be cured with the proper Item or by entering Hyper Mode.

Bind    - Lowers the target's Speed.
Blind   - Lowers the target's Accuracy.
Virus   - Target takes 5% of their maximum LE as damage every turn.
Berserk - Target will randomly attack an ally instead.
Frozen  - Target cannot move. Attacking the target will shatter the ice.
DOA     - Instant Death. 

Status Effects seem to follow the same formula for Elemental Resistance. I 
say this because Block Force Metal nulls Status Effects so it must set Status
Resistance to Level 6. I am not sure how much the lesser Protection Force 
Metals affect this value though.

 5.1 Hyper Modes [HYPR-LINK]
==============================================================================

Hyper Mode allows characters to change into powerful armored forms, greatly 
increasing their stats and attack capabilities, but only for a limited number 
of turns. Characters are also completely immune to Status Effects while in
Hyper Mode.

You can recover turns by using "Gain Hyper" items, resting in a Maintenance 
Bed, having a Nurse Reploid restore them. They're also restored to their 
maximum when you level up.

The number of turns a character can stay in Hyper Mode can be increased with 
"Build Hyper" Items, but there are only 12 Build Hypers in the game so be 
careful who you use them on!

A good tactic to use in boss fights is to swap in and out of Hyper Mode every 
turn to conserve their power.

Another thing to remember is effects from Items like Boost Power and Boost
Speed, as well as the effects of the Power Charge Sub Weapon, are canceled
when you enter Hyper Mode.

==============================================================================
 5.2 Action Triggers [ACTR-LINK]
==============================================================================
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Action Triggers, if you've ever played Final Fantasy, are this game's Limit 
Breaks. They are super powerful character specific attacks and will be your
main method of damaging bosses.

Party members can only use their Action Triggers when their WE is at 50%, 
although certain extra effects can happen if you wait until it's at 100%.

Changing into Hyper Mode can also give a character a different Action Trigger.

{Thanks gsk6390 for the info, even though I don't quite understand it myself.}
"Notes: Attacking with the Main Weapon has 100% Power. However, if a move has 
50% Power this is NOT the same as 50% Main Weapon Damage! Likewise, if a move 
has 200% Power this is NOT the same as doing twice the Main Weapon Damage!

The damage formula for attacking with the Main Weapon and for Action Triggers 
is the following:

Damage = (Total Power - Enemy Defense) * 8

Like most RPGs, a random damage variance is applied at the end of the formula 
for each hit. For the above formula, the damage variance is a min of -10% 
damage and a max of +10% damage. Critical Hits modify the Total Power by 
multiplying it by 17/12. They also reduce the damage variance (I don't know 
by how much). Sub-weapons use a different damage formula, I have yet to 
determine this :("

==============================================================================
   X's Action Triggers:
==============================================================================
{Normal X} "Charge Shot": S-type at 130% Power, hits all enemies.

Hold A to charge power and release to inflict a shotgun spread-like attack on
all enemy units.

The final damage is multiplied by the Charge % (eg. a 50% Charge Shot would do 
half the damage of a 100% Charge Shot IF 100% Charge Shot didn't crit. A 10% 
Charge Shot does 5 times the damage of a 2% Charge Shot). 

100% charge is guaranteed critical hit.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
{X-Fire} "Charge Collider": C-type

Hold A to charge power and release to inflict massive Non-Elemental damage to
one enemy. It kind of reminds me of the Rasengan from the manga/anime series
Naruto.

It's also a little curious as it actually hits multiple times but the damage 
is displayed in one lump sum.

Damage is calculated: 50% Main Weapon Damage * (# of hits). 
The number of hits is proportional to the charged WE, the maximum is 12 at 
100% WE.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
{Ultimate Armor} "Nova Strike": S-type 

Similar to a Final Strike, you rapidly mash the A, X, and Y buttons to inflict 
massive damage.

A Button: S-type attack at 8% Power, hits all enemies.
Y Button: S-type attack at 10% Power, hits one enemy.
X Button: S-type attack at 100% Power * (# of hits * 6%), hits 3 times.

More WE gives you more time to mash like crazy.

==============================================================================
   Zero's Action Triggers:
==============================================================================
{Normal Zero & Black Zero} "Command Arts": C-type

You have a limited amount of time to use the Control Pad or D-pad to input the 
displayed button combinations to do a flurry of sword combos.

The amount of time in seconds is = WE/10. 

However, everytime you input a successful command, you have to wait approx 0.5 
seconds before you can start inputting the next command.

Each hit is subject to a "Damage Scale". In other words each hit does slightly 
less damage than it normally would, think of it as Zero's Sword Arm getting 
tired from all that swinging. Damage Scales as follows: 

Hit # = Damage Scaling
1=100%
2=90%
3=70%
4=60%
5=50%
6=40%
7=30% 
And continues at 30% for every following hit.

The available combos are:

Zero Slash:(Down, Right, A)
C-type attack at 80% Power.

Zero Breakthrough:(Down, Down+Left, Left, A)
C-type Attack, ignores Armor, uses 30% Power.

Zero Dragon Slash:(Right, Down, Down+Right, A)
C-type Attack, 100% Power, good accuracy against Air-type enemies.

Zero Wave Slash:(Left, Down+Left, Down, Down+Right, Right, A)
C-type Attack, each hit has a random Power between 40%-150%.
(NOTE: The game states it's 50%-200% Power, this is false)
"input a combined total of 300 commands to unlock."

Zero Skull Crusher:(Right, Down+Right, Down, Down+Left, Left, Left+Up, Up, A)
C-type Attack, Power 100%, Guaranteed Critial Hit!
"input a combined total of 999 commands to unlock."

------------------------------------------------------------------------------ 
{Absolute Zero} "Calamity Arts": C-type

Button combinations will flash on the screen, enter them as shown to deal 
massive damage to one enemy. 

Again time is (Seconds = WE/10).

The combinations are:

Left + Y: Water Element, Power 125%.

Right + X: Water Element, Power 150%.

Up + X: Water Element, Power 100%, ignores Armor.

Down + Y: Non-Elemental, Power 50%-200%.

Y + X: Non-Elemental, Power 125%, guaranteed critical hit.

A Button: Water Element, Power 75%, chance of inflicting Freeze.


==============================================================================
   Axl's Action Trigger
==============================================================================
{Normal Axl & Stealth Mode} "DNA Change":

A large grid with different button combinations will appear, along with a list 
of names of defeated Bosses. Input the proper button combination in a set 
amount of time to have Axl perform that Bosses' signature attack. 

It's easier than it sounds, just pay attention to the grid. 

The more WE the more time you have to input the combination.

You have to have defeated the appropriate boss first before you can use their 
attack.

(these are just some of the possible combinations)

A, X, A, A, B, Y, B, A = Wild Jango: 
C-type Thunder Attack at 200% Power to one enemy. 
(NOTE: the game says 100%-200%, it's wrong again)

A ,X, B, X, X, A, X, X = Mad Nautilus:
No Damage. Randomly inflicts Virus, Blind, Bind or Berserk to random enemies.

A, X, A, A, B, A, Y, B = Incentas: 
2-Hit S-type attack, 100% Power, hits all enemies.

A, X, A, A, X, Y, Y, Y = Rafflesian: 
S-type, Fires 10 Missiles that inflict 200 damage each to all enemies.

A, X, B, X, B, Y, A, A = Ninetails: 
C-type, Hits one enemy 9 times for 999 damage each.

A, Y, X, A, Y, A, B, B = Depth Dragoon: 
3-hit S-type Thunder Attack to all enemies.

A, X, B, Y, Y, Y, X, X = Mach Jentra: 
S-type Fire attack to all enemies.

A, Y, X, Y, B, A, Y, A = Silver Horn: 
S-type Water attack to all enemies.

Failure will have Axl attack the enemy with a single shot at 130% Power.

If you screw up you can press Start to reset the grid and try again if you
have enough time left.

==============================================================================
   Spider's Action Trigger
==============================================================================
{Normal Spider & Trickstar} "Fortune Hand": S-type

You play a quick mini-game of Draw Poker. 
Select which cards you don't want with A, Draw new cards with the R Button. 

The more WE the better your starting hand? (I honestly don't know).

Depending on your hand after pressing R Spider will perform one of the 
following attacks:

(junk)
Fumble: 100% Power, guaranteed Critical Hit, but horrible accuracy.

(1 of a kind)
Pair: 2-hit S-type attack, 100% Power.

(2 of a kind)
2 Pair: 2-hit S-type attack, 100% Power, increased chance of a Critical Hit.

(3 of a kind)
Tri Card: 3-Hit S-type, inflicts Fire, Water and Thunder Damage.

(4 of a kind)
4 Penalty: No Damage, lowers all of the target's stats by 25%.

(3 of a kind + 2 of a kind)
Death House: S-type to all enemies, 125% Power, chance of inflicting DOA.

(All cards same suit)
Flush: S-type, 100% Power, hits all enemies, inflicts blind.

(8,9,10,J,etc different suits) 
Straight: 5-hit S-type attack.

(8,9,10,J,etc same suit)
Straight Flush: 3-hit S-type attack to all enemies, last hit is a guaranteed 
                critical hit.

(10,J,Q,K,A same suit) 
Royal Straight Flush: 
S-type attack to all enemies at 300% Power, chance of inflicting DOA.

Honestly the most useless Action Trigger in the game, unless you're good at
virtual draw poker, the effects are too random to be any real use.

==============================================================================
   Massimo's Action Trigger
==============================================================================
{Normal Massimo & Glint Armor} "Berserk Charge": S-type

Rapidly press A, B, X and Y buttons to fill the displayed meters in a limited 
amount of time to fire a massive Wave Motion Gun that inflicts huge damage to
one enemy.

More WE = More time to do the button mash.

A button - Charges Power.

B button - Adds status effects, Blind, Virus, Bind, and Berserk.

X button - Adds extra hits. (Do 10,000 Damage to unlock)
           Each hit does 10% of Berserk Charge's damage.

Y button - increases chance for a Critical Hit. (Do 3,000 damage to unlock)

==============================================================================
   Marino's Action Trigger
==============================================================================
{Normal Marino & Quicksilver} "Emotional Reels": 

Basically a Slot Machine, press A to stop the Reels and depending on what you 
get Marino will do something. 

The more WE you have the slower the Reels spin. 

It's actually real easy to use. There is no time limit so take as long as you
need to memorize the pattern on the Reels. It's all about timing.

New Reels are added as Marino levels up.

The various outcomes are:

3 Different Symbols/Blank
Marino Stomp: C-type Attack, 130% Power.

3 Treasure Chests
I'll Take That!: C-type Attack, 100% Power, guaranteed Item Steal.

3 Reapers 
Scattered Flower: 3-hit S-type Attack to one enemy, chance of inflicting DOA.

3 Hearts
Your Life, Please!: 3-hit S-type Attack, recovers Marino's LE equal to the 
                    damage inflicted.

3 Boots
Hyper Dive: C-type Attack on one enemy, 200% Power.

3 Marino Faces
Mirage Dive: C-type attack on all enemies at 250% Power.

==============================================================================
   Cinnamon's Action Trigger
==============================================================================
{Normal Cinnamon & Iron Maiden} "Angelic Aid":
 
Rapidly rotate the C-stick in a set amount of time to make Pink Hearts appear
on the screen. For each full heart, Cinnamon restores 10% of each party 
member's LE. 10 Hearts completely heals all Life Energy.

More hearts are added as Cinnamon levels up. 

And as usual more WE means more time.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Before we truly begin I would like to take a moment to outline the enemies 
you'll be facing.

BAT BONES only use "Observe", which does nothing but skip their turn until you 
destroy one of their friends, then they'll start using a weak nameless S-type 
attack. If you happen to inflict Berserk on them somehow they'll do a 6-hit 
C-type attack when they use "Destroy Ally", it's quite funny. Typical weak 
cannon fodder, but they do drop Gain Hypers at an agonizing 1% drop rate. So a 
group of 4 Bat Bones is probably the best way to farm them.

WILD PATROL DOGS have a bit more bite to them, but are still weak. They'll use
a normal S-type attack and "Shield Peeler" an S-type attack which has a chance
of lowering your Shield stat by 25%. Two good shots should put them down.

PREON CHASER is the biggest threat, with a sturdy 600 LE it'll take a few 
turns to bring down. It's uses a normal C-type attack, "Stun Gun" which is a
Thunder Element C-type attack that inflicts Bind, and "Greedy" a powerful 
S-type attack that has a high chance of being a critical hit, but also has low 
accuracy.

WILD RESCUE DOGS are slightly annoying. They'll attack normally with an S-type 
attack, use "Sand Splash" to inflict Blind on you, and worst of all use 
"Life Gain 25" to heal themselves. Take these out first so they're not healing 
enemy units.

PREON BITMASTERS will use "Bit Shift" to summon Bits if there is space 
available. Then use "Boost All Speed" to increase their Speed by 25%. Then 
they'll whack you with a C-type attack or run away.

BITS just peck at you with a weak S-type attack.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Enterance Hall - 
Go through the only available door in the NE corner of the room. There is no 
way to get to the door on the other side of the rubble.


Area 1F-East - 
The first door on your right contains a Save Point, it sort of looks like a 
trash can. Further down the hall are two Blue Treasure Gems. These Gems 
function like pinatas as you have to break them open with the B button to 
get the goodies inside. Break these two open to get ([50 zenny]) and 
([Build LE]).

Enter the room next to the save point and a terminal will activate, examine 
it to open the locked door outside.


East Area Stairs, 1F to 2F - 
Just an empty staircase, Continue on up and through the door.


Area 2F East -
Head for the Yellow Gem, it contains ([Tank Energy 25]), you shouldn't need it
so skip past and go through the door behind it.


2F: New Model Reploid Development - 
Examine all 4 pods to learn Wild Jango, Silver Horn, Dr Psyche and Mach 
Jentler were all built here. You'll get another message from Zero, seems there
are 4 pods on his side too, anyway he's unlocked the doors for you so go back 
out into the hall.


Area 2F East +revisited+ - 
First door on the right has an ([Anti-Lock]). The next room contains ([70z]) 
and ([30z]) and a Computer Terminal displaying a security breach warning. The 
exit is through the southeast door.


East Area Stairs, 2F to 3F -
Another empty stairway, head on up.


Area 3F East - 
Its exaclty the same as Area 2F East. Head for the Yellow ([Tank Energy 25]) 
Gem you probably don't need and enter the door behind it.


3F: High Performance Reploid Development - 
Check the pods out to see Scarface and Epsilon were built here, and it 
seems Epsilon must have been dropped on his head before his construction was 
completed. Go back outside.


Area 3F East +revisited+ - 
The first door on the right has a ([Melt Missile]). This new Sub Weapon is 
weaker than your Micro Missiles and costs slightly more but has a chance of 
lowering an enemy's Shield by 10%. Equip it if you want to and move on to 
the next door.

In the second room is another computer terminal. Activate it and Zero will 
call you and explain that you both need to activate your respective terminals 
at the same time. Zero will send an audio signal through the terminal and tell 
you to push the A button when you hear the 3rd beep. If you're having trouble 
try pressing A a split second before the 3rd beep. 

Once you've unlocked the door try to leave and you'll be confronted by your 
first Preon Chaser, just pound it with sub weapons and regular attacks and 
don't be afrade to use a Sub Tank if needed.

After the fight you'll get your first two Force Metals ([X Heart]) and 
([LE +100]). X Heart will automatically revive X with 10% health if he 
should fall once per battle and LE +100 increase your max LE by 100. Equip 
both and continue on.


East Area Stairs, 3F to 4F - 
Pick up the ([Tank Energy 50]) you'll probably need it after that Preon 
Chaser.


Area 4F East - 
Zero calls to let you know he's waiting on you in the next room, ignore him 
for the moment. Go to the end of the hall and pick up the ([Backup]), 
([Build Shield]) and the ([Tank Energy Infinity]). Save your game at the save 
point and take note of the locked door, it'll be important later. 
 
Such a large cache of items beside a save point is an obvious sign a boss 
fight is around the corner. There is not much you can do to prepare, fight 
some random enemies till you're level 5 or so, and make sure you're fully 
healed and your Sub Tanks are full, then enter the west door to meet up 
with Zero and...

SHARK MISSILE's Attacks:
Shark Missile |S-type |S|inflicts 500 damage.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Strategy -
Hippopressor's head protects it from S-type attacks so have X focus on the 
Shark Missile instead, this will prevent its painful kamikaze attack.

Zero should attack Hippopressor's head. Don't bother with Sub Weapons, 
conserve your WE for Action Triggers instead.

When X or Zero reach 100% WE switch into Hyper Mode and use their respective 
Action Triggers on Hippopressor. X's Charge Collider will do excellent damage.
Zero's Zero Slash is the easiest to do, try and get 16 hits with it, I find it 
easier to do with the D-pad.

On their next turn have X and Zero exit Hyper Mode and go back to the original 
plan, X attacking Shark Missile and Zero stabs Hippopressor in the head. When 
they hit 100% WE again go Hyper Mode and use Action Triggers.

Keep this up and Hippo will go down real fast.

WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING BOSS FIGHT WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING
==============================================================================

Depending on how fast you beat Hippopressor and what you defeated him with 
(Regular Attack, Action Trigger, Final Strike, etc) you'll win bonus EXP. I 
got 30% bonus EXP, but you might get something different. After the fight 
equip the ([Fire Missile]) and ([Guard Buster]) you won and you can continue 
exploring the ruins.


Test Hall 1 - 
Before you leave the room check where Hippopressor broke through the wall for 
a ([Power +1]) and ([Speed +1]) Force Metals, equip them on X and leave 
through the west door.


Area 4F West - 
Infront of you is a ([Tank Part]), collect 4 to get an extra Sub Tank. The 
door to the north is locked and there is no way to unlock it so go for the 
bottom door instead, picking up the ([80 zenny]) on the way.


West Block Stairs, 4f to 5F - 
More featureless stairs, boring! Notice how on some stairs it's raining and 
on others it's not, weird.


Area 5F West - 
Pick up the ([Vaccine Program]) and ([Reboot]) before continuing through the 
door and a cutscene will occur. After some plot twists you could see coming 
from Jupiter, Zero will leave the party.

And that concludes Chapter 1. Save and continue with...

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
New enemies for this area are:

SINEDROPPER is a weak helicopter mechaniloid that uses a 3-hit S-type attack 
that hits all party memebers and "Toxic Bomb" which is a Fire Element attack 
that does 200 damage with a chance of inflicting Poison.

METTAURS attacks with a 4-hit S-type move or "Mettock Strike" which is C-type 
and ignores Armor. They'll duck under their helmet once their LE drops below 
half which blocks S-type hits so switch to Hyper Mode and hit them with a 
C-type instead.

EINHAMMERS look tough but they aren't really and always come with a partner, 
usually a Wild Rescue Dog. Normally they just use a moderate C-type attack 
unless you kill their partner then they go crazy. First they'll use 
"Break Shield" on themselves lowering their Shield to 0 to boost their Power 
and follow up with "Double Iron", a painful 2-hit C-type attack that ignores 
Armor. How I take them out easy is use only regular attacks on the partner to 
conserve WE. When the partner dies X should have 100% WE by then and next turn 
Einhammer will use Break Shield. On X's following turn have him go Hyper Mode 
and KO the Einhammer with a Charge Collider.

ZENNYDROPPERS have Sinedropper's 3-hit S-type attack and dangle a bag of 200 
zenny infront of your face instead of a bomb. They start with "Observe" just 
like Bat Bones. Then every following turn their zenny doubles! What makes them 
annoying is their evasion is through the roof and they love to run away. It's 
tough to take advantage of them so it's probably best to kill them quickly and 
take the 200z instead of risking it on double-or-nothing bets.

PREON SPARK is a new Preon enemy, tougher than a Chaser. They'll use a 
nameless Thunder Element C-type attack, "Electric Scissors" a Thunder Element 
C-type attack that inflicts Bind, and "Impact Uppercut" is a Thunder Element 
C-type attack that has a high chance of a critical hit. Once their health 
falls below half they'll start using a strong Thunder Element attack called 
"Mega Thunder" instead of Electric Scissors. They're weak to Fire Element 
attacks.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Shaft 999F -
X's wakes up at the base of Central Tower. Seems Epsilon's Rebellion has taken
over the city and drove some of the Giga City's inhabitance underground.
There is a female reploid in the corner who'll offer you your first chance to 
buy stuff.

-----------------------

Buy 9 Mega Fires for 1440z, they'll be very useful in the near future.

There is also a Maintenance Bed you can rest at to recover LE and fill 
your Sub Tanks. Go through the only door and take a left to reach the main 
hall. Following the hallway up, picking up the ([Clear Vision]), followed 
by a ([Vaccine Program]) and a ([Build Power]). Go through the door at the 
top of the spiral hallway to reach.


Air City Gate -
Nothing much here, there are 3 reploids you can talk to. Continue on up till 
you come across a big yellow Construction Reploid blocking the way, seems the 
road is closed, take the detour to the right instead.


Access Tower E-1 -
Head stright through this short hallway picking up the ([Gain Hyper]) and a 
([Tank Energy 100]). Notice the little nook, it seems like something was 
suppose to go here but was cut out in development.


Air City East Square -
A short cutscene will play. Seems X is a wanted bot. Don't worry though no 
one seems to really care and no one will turn you in. The south door will 
take you to a short hallway that leads to the shopping arcade, but it's 
closed so head north instead, theres a Save Point in the hallway.


Air City 3rd Street -
Immediately to your left is a big Purple Vending Machine, you can exchange
2 Treasure Tokens here for a special collectable Figurine, they serve no real 
purpose. Nothing else here so move on through the door at the far end of the 
hallway.


Air City North Square -
Nothing here but a dark storage room and a couple reploids you can chat it up 
with. Head through the door on the other side of the room for a cutscene.
Ok I guess somebody was paying attention to the news. A Bounty Hunter named 
Spider has come to claim the bounty on X's head.

Attacks. X Fire's Normal Attacks are Fire Element and will deal excellent 
damage, since Spider is weak to Fire. 

After 2-3 turns Spider will run away.

Pick up the ([Power Charge]), ([Tank Energy 50]) and ([100z]). The Power 
Charge is a very useful Sub Weapon, for the cost of 30 WE your next attack's 
power will be boosted by x1.5. Two charges will double the power and the 
boosts carry over on following turns but expire once you attack.


Air City Gate +revisited+ -
Follow the hallway and ta-da, you're on the other side of the roadblock. Take 
a right and follow the path up. The hallway gets darker and there is some 
debris laying about, the path makes a sharp U-turn and you'll eventually walk 
into a cutscene, The Key Item ([Aile's ID]) will be added to your 
inventory afterwards.


Tower Base Access Tunnel -
Well that idiot broke the door so there is no turning back. I mean was all 
that really neccesary? They were just a bunch of Preon Chasers! X could have 
taken them...whatever, no sense crying over a dead guy you just met.

Follow the path picking up the ([Gain Hyper]), ([Mega Fire]) and ([100z]), 
([Tank Energy Infinity]) along the way.

In this area you'll also start to encounter tougher enemies, particularly 
Einhammers and Mettaurs.


Equipment Maintenence B -
Now you're in the main tower. Behind the each set of shelves is a 
([Build Armor]) and ([Build Speed]). Go through the door with the Up Arrow 
on it.


Equipment Maintence A -
There is a Save Point to your left. The west door has ([100z]) for grabs. 
Take the east door around and you'll meet a reploid who's friends are being 
held captive in the next room. Be a hero and rescue them.


Base Security Station -
You'll fight a group of two Preon Chasers, not too hard. After the fight the 
reploid from earlier will be grateful and give you the ([Security Card]) Key 
Item. You can buy things from the three lovely reploid ladies behind him 
and the reploid sitting on the bench in the corner will refill your LE and 
Subtanks for free, sweet!

Restock your supply of Mega Fires if you need to. And buy the Fire Buster, 
trade in X's Guard Buster for a discount. Be sure to also buy 3 Thunder 
Guards!

Now that your shopping is done take the west door and pick up the ([200z]), 
the North Door has an ([Ultra Fire]), best save this for later. Take the 
east door to continue.


Data Backup Room Hall A -
There's a ([Tank Energy 25]) in the center of the room. Take the west door 
to a hallway and follow it to the left to find the Force Metal ([Eagle Eye]), 
this nifty Force Metal increases accuracy by 10%, handy for hitting those 
damn Zennydroppers. Turn around and follow the hallway around to.


Data Backup Room Hall B -
A couple of cutscenes will play, after they're done go through the door 
infront of you.


Data Backup Room - 
Here you'll meet Chief R, who is being held captive by a lone Preon Spark. 
The Preon Spark should give you no trouble, it's weak to Fire and you just 
happen to have a shiny new Fire Buster! You did buy the Fire Buster didn't 
you?

After the fight, Chief R will give his thanks and you now have 200 seconds 
to get your robobutt to the Command Room and stop a bomb.


Data Backup Room Hall B +revisited+ -
Backtrack the way you came and you'll fight a group of 2 Preon Bitmasters, 
the bomb's timer stops during enemy encounters so take your time.


Data Backup Room Hall A +revisited+ -
Quickly dash through taking the east door. You'll fight another battle 
with 2 Preon Chasers this time. When you reach the door at the end of the 
hall Chief R will unlock it for you.


Command Center Staff Room -
Ignore everything in the room and take the east door and follow the long 
hall.


Base Enterance -
Take the door immediately to your left.


Base Gateway -
Take the door infront of you.


Command Room -
You'll fight one more battle against two Preon Chasers and one Preon Spark.
After the fight push the big red button in the center of the room to turn off 
the bomb. Chief R will call and tell you Wild Jango is trying to escape. But 
first BACKTRACKING.
 

Base Gateway +revisited+ -
The east door takes you to the Air Bus and eventually the Shoping Arcade, 
but it's locked. The west door has a Maintenance Bed you can rest at but it's 
locked too.


Base Enterance +revisited+ -
In the center of the room is a ([Tank Energy 25]). The east door has a Save 
Point and will eventually take you to Wild Jango, but instead take the west 
door.


Command Center Staff Room +revisited+ -
Open the north door and fight 2 Preon Bitmasters, then take the ([Tank Part]).
Now go all the way back to where you met Chief R.


Data Backup Room +revisited+ -
Go through the door past Chief R and take the ([100z]) in the back. After 
that return to the 3 reploid ladies and finish up any last minute shopping 
you have left to do. Be sure you have the Fire Buster, 3 Thunder Guards 
and 9 Mega Fires. Then head back up the tower.


Base Enterance +revisited II+ -
Take the east door, be sure to save at the Save Point.


Large Heliport Access Tunnel -
Snag the ([Backup]) and ([Tank Energy 100]). Before you go through the giant 
door make sure X's has his Fire Buster, and those 3 Thunder Guards equipped.

Strategy - 
Spider joins you for this fight, his equipment is poor and his attack is weak. 
His Hyper Mode renders him invincible, but it burns out quickly. He comes 
equipped with Item Capture and Twin Missiles, I'd ignore both, Jango doesn't 
have anything worth stealing anyway.

3 Thunder Guards on X will greatly lower the damage from all of Jango's 
attacks. Pity you can't equip them on Spider. Best thing to do with Spider 
is have him toss Mega Fires, Ultra Fire will do 1500 damage! Or heal with a 
Sub Tank when needed.

While Spider is doing that X should just keep hitting Jango with regular 
attacks.

When X's WE hits 100%, enter Hyper Mode and attack with Charge Collider. 
Then Cooldown next turn and go back to regular attacks while you wait for X's 
WE to recharge.

Rinse & repeat till Jango is dead, Easy!

[Items] Figure Token  x3|
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Now that you've regained control of Central Tower you're ready to start 
building an army against Epsilon, but you're pretty short on members. It's 
just you, Spider and Chief R. However the Chief has a plan, break into the 
Tianna Island P.O.W. camp and rescue the captured reploids there being held 
prisoner by Epsilon. Great! But before we get to that, WE MUST EQUIP!

Go outside to the Base Gateway and ta-da! the Air Bus is now up and running 
also the Maintenance Bed is open too. Talk to the female reploid to
board the Air Bus.


Air City South Square -
There's really nothing here but a few reploids you can talk to. Take the East 
Door to a hallway with three ([Figure Tokens]) and a white Vending Machine, 
this one dispenses 1 Figurine for 2 Figure Tokens, you just got three so why 
not use them. Continue on and you'll reach.


Air City Shopping Arcade -
Here you'll find the main shopping district with shops that sell everything 
from Weapons, Items, to Force Metal and there is also a Teleporter that lets 
you go back to levels you've already beaten.

                                              --------------------------

All Shops update their stock as the game progresses. The General Merchant is 
special, he sells stuff the other shops have stopped selling.

You probably don't have much zenny right now so you'll want to come back here
when you get the proper funds.

But what you'll be wanting is the Jack of Spades and Jack of Clubs for Spider, 
6 Water Guards, 2 WE +5s and 9 Mega Thunders. The Scope Buster is nice for 
hitting Zennydroppers.

Spider's Card weapons are interesting. Whenever Spider has 75% or more WE they 
get a bonus effect. Heart Cards double the EXP of a defeated enemy, Diamond 
Cards double the zenny, Spade Cards hit the entire enemy party, and Club Cards 
deal 2-hits with a slight chance of a critical hit. His card's unique quirks 
make up for his lame Action Trigger.

Equip the 2 WE +5 on Spider, they'll push his starting WE to 50 and on his 
first turn he'll gain +25 to make 75% WE which will allow his cards to do 
their thing right off the bat.

Thats all there is to do so head back to the Command Room and talk to Chief R
to start your next mission.

<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
New enemies:

BIG MONKEY are big, tough and carry a big axe. They attack with a normal 
C-type swing, "Boost All Speed" to raise the Speed of all enemies by 25%, 
"Power Charge" to increase the power of their next attack by x1.5, or 
"Mega Blizzard" a strong Water Element attack on one party member. They're 
weak to Thunder.

BLOWFISH is a blue fish. Has a weak 3-hit S-type attack, "Armor Peeler" is a 
Water Element C-type attack that lowers your Armor by 25%, and they'll also 
use "Life Gain 25" to heal. Very weak to Thunder.

D-SHARK is the most deadly thing here. Tough and with 3600 LE I hate these 
things. They'll attack with a 3-hit S-type attack on all party members,
"Smash!" is a C-type Water Element attack with a random Power of 50%-150%, 
"Ultra Blizzard" is a strong Water Element attack that hits all party members, 
but it's most deadly attack is "Mini Shark" where it'll send up to 3 little 
mini D-shark bombs toward one party member which will explode and deal major 
damage. It's weak to Thunder Element and you can prevent its Mini Shark 
attack if you hit it with consecutive C-type attacks.

DOBERMANS are annoying. They'll use a normal S-type attack on one party 
member, use "Life Gain 25" to recover their LE, and use "SOS" to summon 
another Doberman to the battle. I suppose you can exploit their SOS to 
maximize your EXP gain.

PREON POD is a new Preon with two big cannons on its back. On their first turn 
they'll display the message "Launch sequence for freeze-shot has begun". On 
their following turn they'll use "Freeze Shot", a Water Element S-type attack 
that inflicts Freeze, it also uses up the Liquid Suffication they drop. You 
can prevent Freeze Shot by inflicting over 500 damage in a single hit. After 
that it'll restort to a weak nameless Water Element S-type attack, 
"Bull's Eye" which is just its regular attack with added 100% accuracy, and 
"Mega Blizzard". It's weak to Thunder

TRIPUFFERS usually accompany Blowfish and attack with a normal 3-hit S-type 
attack or "Shield Peeler" which is a C-type Water Element attack that lowers 
Shield by 25%. They're weak to Thunder and go berserk if Blowfish is 
destroyed.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

POW Camp Central Gate -
You can take the Teleporter behind you if you need to go back to HQ to rest 
and restock if you want, you can do this from any Save Point now too.
 
Follow the hallway where you'll meet the famous STEEL MASSIMO! Who will 
promptly join your group. 

Check Massimo's equipment if you like. He comes with his trademark lance, a 
Power Charge Sub Weapon, Massimo Plus and Water Guard Force Metals. Massimo 
Plus increases all his stats by 1 and also increases his chance to counter 
attack by 25%. His Action Trigger "Berserk Charge" is a powerful laser 
cannon that has a chance of inflicting several status effects. Massimo is 
powerful but his power comes at a cost, he'll take extra damage from all 
elements and he only has 2 Force Metal Slots.

Massimo starts at Level 1 so you may want to just run around in circles 
fighting random encounters to level him up.

The following tip comes from SigmaZeroX:
Once Massimo reaches Level 10 or 11, return to the Hunter Base. Make sure that
Massimo is equipped a Power Charge Sub Weapon. In addition, do not equip him 
with the Massimo Plus Force Metal as it makes him Counterattack needlessly.
Equip Massimo with 2 Power +1s instead. Then have the party go to Lagrano 
Ruins or the Prisoner Admission Division in Tianna Camp. Once a battle is 
trigged, beat all of the enemies until only 1 remains, have X and Spider 
defend. As for Massimo, he should wait till he has 100% WE. With 100% WE, 
have Massimo enter his Glint Armor Hyper Mode and use a Power Charge.  
Cancel the turn with the B Button once he charges. When Massimo’s turn comes 
again, use Power Charge once more and it should say “CHARGE MAX”. With a full
Power Charge in stock have Massimo use his Action Trigger. If Massimo deals 
3,000 points of damage with Berserk Charge it will gain the “Critical” 
ability, which increases the chances of a critical hit. The “Critical” ability 
really helps Massimo win against Silver Horn.


Lift 1 -
Take either elevator down.


Security Reploid Patrol Area -
The next few rooms are patrolled by these little flying mechaniloids, if you 
get caught in the red beam they project you'll get sent back to the bright
pulsing circle at the beginning of the room. Just dash past them when they're 
looking the other way it's not too hard. You can duck into little nooks in the 
wall to hide from them as the fly past and pick up some items too. The first 
nook has a ([Figure Token]). The next nook has ([200z]), be sure to quickly 
get out after you grab it as you're not safe there.

The next room as two security bots, one flying between two nooks and the other 
patrolling the main hall, in the left nook is a ([Figure Token]), but if you 
try to collect it you'll surely be caught, then again nothing bad actually 
happens if you do. All of the Security Bots dissapear once you defeat the boss
so you can always come back later for it.

The second nook on the left has a ([Decoy]), grab it then make for the next 
room. In it there are two more security bots, one flying across the south end
of the room, the other is on the east side. The east room contains a 
([Thunder Missile]). The exit is through the south door.


Lift 2 -
Take either elevator down.


Prisoner Admission Division -
The door to your left is locked so head right. Pick up the ([Boost Armor]). 
Go past another locked door on the left, pick up a ([Figure Token]) at the 
end of the hall, then take the door on the left. Use the Computer Terminal 
to unlock the two doors you just saw, backtrack and pick up the ([Build Speed]) 
and ([Mega Thunder]) from the now unlocked rooms. Now go back down where the 
Computer Terminal is and take the right door this time.


Lift 3 -
Pick an elevator and continue on.


Main Gate - Depth 4 Undersea Prison -
Step forward to challenge the guards, 2 Doberman and a Big Monkey, they 
shouldn't be too difficult, have X with his Thunder Buster focus on the Big 
Monkey while Spider and Massimo take the Dobermans. After the fight, save at 
the Save Point, then take the big double doors.


West Prison -
Here you'll find a short hall with a bunch of locked cells. Unlock them 
with the Computer Terminal and proceed to search each room.

Be careful as in this area you'll start to encounter D-Sharks, very tough 
enemies that hit hard. It's probably better to run from them. If you do fight
them C-type attack like Massimo's Lance or X's Charge Collider work best.

The cell right across from the Computer Terminal contains a Doberman disguised
as a prisoner, fight him if you want he's not that hard and he'll reveal some
interesting dialog.

The next cell contains a female reploid who'll give you a ([Water Guard]) as 
thanks for saving her.

The cell across the hall contains a ([Reboot]).

The next cell doesn't have anything of interest.

The last cell has a ([Jack of Hearts]) weapon for Spider.

After you've gotten all the goodies head back out the Main Gate.


Main Gate - Depth 4 Undersea Prison +Revisited+ -
Take the East Door now, picking the ([Tank Energy 100]) along the way and get 
ready to fight 3 Big Monkey guards. Then go through the door they were 
guarding.


East Prison -
Just like the last group of cells, use the Computer Terminal to unlock the 
cells then search each one for goodies.

Just like before the first cell has a Doberman disguised as a prisoner.

The next cell has a ([Figure Token]).

The next one has ([400z]).

The last cell has a prisoner that will give you the ([Prison ID]) Key Item.

Youre done here so go back to the Main Gate.


Main Gate Depth 4 Undersea Prison +revisited II+ -
Save your progress then go through the west door.


Lift 4 -
Take the lift down.


Maze Area 1 -
The door on the left is locked and needs a special key so head right instead, 
take the ([Tank Energy 50]) and you'll walk into a cutscene. Skip the first 
door on the left and head all the way to the end of the hall. Pick up ([200z]) 
then take the right door for a ([Build Armor]) and ([Build Shield]). Head back 
and take the door infront of you.


Maze Area 2 -
The right hallway will take you to a room with ([Warm-up]), ([Boost Power]), 
and ([Boost Shield]). Head back to the main hallway, ignore the door past the 
Yellow Gem and take the door on the left instead. Go right to find a room with
a ([Tomahawk]) and then return to the main hall again. Pick up the 
([Tank Energy 50]) and go through the door behind it.


Lift 5 -
Go down again wheee!


Dark Room -
Head around the corner to find the person you're looking for, The System 
Operator Nana, guarded by 2 Preon Sparks and a Preon Pod. Take care of the Pod 
first, if it freezes one of your party members use a Warm-up on them. Also you 
can steal a Water Guard from them if you didn't buy them in town.

After the fight Nana will give you her thanks and unlock the door. Head South 
and you'll find a Save Point and a ([Tank Energy 50]).

The room after the Save Point has two colored panels on them, Nana calls and 
says you have to step on them in the proper order to proceed, she'll then show
you the code;

[Blue], [Red].

Step on the panels in that order to unlock the door.


Security Panel Area-
The next series of rooms will have more colored panels on the floor. Step on 
them in the order Nana shows to unlock the door, but you can also step on 
them in different combinations to unlock items, but if you punch in a wrong 
code you'll set off an alarm and have to fight some enemies.

The first room has three panels;

[Blue], [Red], [Yellow] = Unlocks the exit.

[Yellow], [Red], [Blue] = Unlocks a room with ([Build LE]), ([Build Power]),
                       ([Build Armor]), ([Build Shield]) and ([Build Speed]).

 
The second room has another three panels;

[Yellow], [Blue], [Red] = Unlocks the exit.

[Red], [Yellow], [Blue] = Unlocks a room containing ([1000z]) and four 
                          ([Figure Tokens]).

[Blue], [Yellow], [Red] = Will unlock the ([Tank Part]).


The last room has four panels;

[Yellow], [Red], [Green], [Blue] = Unlocks the exit.

[Green], [Blue], [Red], [Yellow] = Unlocks the ([Queen of Diamonds]). 


Deep Prison Area -
Save your progress at the Save Point. Now would be a good time to warp 
back to HQ rest and finish any shopping you need done.

Head past the two guards and you'll get a cutscene. After the scene Massimo 
will have disappeared from the party. Head back to those two guards to find 
them incapacitated. Go through the door they were guarding. Go down the lift 
to find Massimo and after some short dialog he'll rejoin you. Go back topside
and you'll hear Nana scream, HERO TIME!

Go through the now unlocked door.


Aqua Coliseum Enterance - 
Make sure your party is fully healed then grab the ([Tank Energy 100]) and 
([Gain Hyper]). 

Have 3 Water Guards equipped on both X and Spider, only 2 will fit on Massimo.
X should have the Thunder Buster equipped. While Spider should use the Jack of 
Clubs.

When you're ready head through the big door...

Strategy - 
This guys a little harder than Jango, but not by much. 

X and Spider should focus on regular attacks, Jack of Club's 2-hit does good 
damage especially if Spider is in Hyper Mode, short as it is. Massimo should 
use Mega Thunders unless his WE is in the green.

When X hits 100% WE go into Hyper Mode and use Charge Collider. 

Massimo only has to wait for his WE to reach 50% then you can throw him into 
Hyper and use Berserk Charge. 50% WE should be more than enough time to fill 
his Attack and Critical meters, just mash both A and Y at the same time with 
your thumb.

Next turn Cooldown then go back to using regular attacks and Mega Thunders.

When Silver Horn's LE drops below half, he'll use Liquid Coating to increase 
his defense, but it won't have too much of an effect on the battle. He'll 
soon go down easy enough.

==============================================================================
WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING BOSS FIGHT WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING
==============================================================================
After the fight you'll win an ([Ice Buster]) for X and a ([Build Hyper])!!!
There are only 12 Build Hypers in the game and this is one of them. This item
will increase the maximum number of turns a character can stay in Hyper Mode 
by 1. 

A word of caution NEVER USE A BUILD HYPER ON SPIDER! It might be tempting what 
with his Hyper Mode only lasting 2 turns, but DO NOT USE ANY BUILD ITEMS ON 
SPIDER!!!

Once your back at HQ, Chief R gives you your next mission. To get a funny 
looking reploid named Professor Gaudile on your side. But before we pay the 
Professor a visit lets look around for a bit.

Talk to Nana and she'll tell you about the Treasure Radar, Deployment Center 
and give you access to the Sky Room.

Lets do some quick Deployment first. Talk to Nana and send your default mechs
to Lagrano Ruins and keep sending them until they come back with the Key Item
([Lagrano Key]) and ([Good Luck]) Force Metal, this handy Force Metal
increases item drop rates by 3% and if you had more of them they'd stack too. 

This can take a while so why not do some shopping while you wait.

Remember any old stock the normal shops have stopped carrying can be bought 
from the General Merchant. I won't be listing his stock from here on since he 
never sells anything new.

Buy the Queen of Spades and Queen of Clubs for Spider and the Protect Lance 
for Massimo. The Guard Buster MKII is nice but I prefer the Scope Buster, it's 
high accuracy will come in handy where we're going, but pick which ever you 
like. Get a couple Gain WE +5's for X and Massimo. Berserk Protection might be 
a good idea as the theme of the next dungeon is Status Effect and Berserk is 
the most annoying.

Remember if you don't have the money, use the Teleport Center to go back to a 
level you've already beaten and fight some enemies till you have enough money.

When you finally get the "Lagrano Key" take the Teleport Center back to 
Lagrano Ruins. Remember that locked door near the save point right before the 
boss fight, guess what the "Lagrano Key" unlocks.


Lagrano Ruins Area 4F East +revisited+ -
Use the Lagrano Key to unlock the door next to the save point to reach a new 
area.


East Block Stairs 4F to 5F -
Follow the stairs picking up the ([Tank Part]), ([Figure Token]) x2 and a 
Deactivated Mechaniloid ([Deerball]), these Deactivated Mechaniloids you find 
can be used in the Deployment Mini-game.


Area 5F East -
Nothing here except, Hey its Jasmine, Cumin, Saffron the 3 reploid ladies you
saved in the 2nd chapter. Such a secret and out of the way place, they must 
have some good stuff to sell.

DAMN THIS STUFF IS EXPENSIVE!!! There is no way you can afford these weapons 
this early in the game, unless you're crazy. it's best to remember this place 
and come back later when funds are more readily available.

Although I do suggest stocking up on the Ultra Attack Items, Boost Power, and
Boost Speed. Boost items will come in handy for the next boss.

When you're ready head back to HQ, you'll have to take the Teleport Pad since 
the save points here lack that function, and talk to Nana to start the next 
mission.

New Enemies:

RABBIDS are annoying little rodents. They'll attack with a C-type rabbit kick,
"Twin Laser" a 2-hit S-type beam fired from their ears, "Spray Gun" a 2-hit 
S-type attack on the whole party, or use "SOS" to summon another annoying 
rabbit.

METTAUR COMMANDER is a new type of Mettaur. It's got the usual Mettaur 4-hit 
S-type attack, "Shell Breaker Wave" lowers Armor and Shield by 25%, and 
"Power Virus" inflicts Virus on the entire party. It's always hiding under 
it's helmet so S-type attacks are ineffective, but if you flip it over onto 
it's back with a strong C-type attack S-type weapons will be super effective! 
The same holds true for almost all Mettaurs.

PREON ELITE is a Preon decked out in black armor holding a small shield. On 
the first turn it will use "Order" which will target one party member and 
focus all other Preon's attacks on that target. After that it will use a 
normal S-type attack, "Power Leak" an S-type attack that lowers Power by 25%, 
"Riot" inflicts Berserk on the entire party, and the ever annoying "Life Gain 
25". They have a chance to block any S-type attacks with their little shield
so C-type attacks are the way to go. And you can steal an Exodus Force Metal 
from them, this nifty Metal allows you flee from a battle with a 100% success 
rate.

PREON GUNNER usually accompany Elites and follow their orders without 
question. They'll attack with a 6-hit S-type machine gun on one party 
member, or "180 degrees" which sprays the entire party with 3-hit S-type 
gunfire.

PARAROID is a dragonfly mechaniloid with high evade, not as hard to hit as 
Zennydroppers but still a pain. They use a normal S-type attack, or 
"Parasite" which sacrifices themselves to boost another enemy unit's 
stats to their maximum. They have Eagle Eye Force Metal you can steal to 
increase the chance of hitting the little buggers. And also drop Mega 
Blizzards which you can't buy yet.

KILLER MANTIS is another insect mechaniloid. This one attacks with a 6-hit 
S-type machine gun, or "Riot". If hit by an S-type attack they'll put their 
blades up in a defensive position and block all further S-type attacks as well 
as counter them with "Death Scythe", a Thunder Element attack on all party 
members that inflicts Bind. So don't shoot them when their arms are up. They 
have a Gatling Buster weapon for X you can steal.

RADAR KILLER is a big green three legged...thing. It uses "Stun Gun" a Thunder 
Element S-type attack that inflicts Bind. "Lock On" which does exactly what it 
says. "Focus Maser" a powerful S-type attack onto whatever target it locked on 
to. And "Split Maser" is an S-type attack that hits everyone. It rarely drops 
a Shock Lance for Massimo.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Teleport Arrivals Area -
Turn on your Treasure Radar if you have a Gameboy Advace connected.

Treasure Tokens are used to buy special Figurines which don't serve any other 
purpose than to be a cheap gimmick to pad out the game's length. I'm not going 
to list where the Treasure Tokens are during the walkthrough as you can't even 
see them without a Gameboy Advance, and if you do have a Gameboy Advance why 
do you need me to tell you where they are? That would defeat the whole purpose 
of a radar and it would make the radar feel bad about itself. Also I'm lazy, 
like the developers of this game...maybe that's why I like it so much.


Head on down the hall and you'll run into fight with a Preon Elite and two 
Preon Gunners.

After the fight go through the double doors they were guarding and you'll
walk into a cutscene. After it's done take the left fork in the path, the 
right path is a dead end. The door never unlocks. Why is it even there!


East Deck High Speed Lift Area -
Pick up the Deactivated Mechaniloid ([Preon Spark]). Head outside and take a 
left at the intersection to find two ([Figure Tokens]) then head back to the 
intersection and take a left. Pick up the three items ([Vaccine Program]), 
([Cure One]) and ([Cooler]) in the next room.


East Deck Main Route -
This area has flashing red security panels on the ground, if you touch them an
alarm will go off and you'll be force to fight some enemies, if you don't want
to fight use the B button to dash over them. At the top of the path is a Save 
Point and a ([Tank Energy 25]). The path splits in two directions, lets go 
south first.


East Deck Residential Division 101 -
Take a left at the intersection and grab five ([Figure Tokens]). Back to the 
intersection and go straight.


East Deck Residential Division 102 -
Pick up the ([600z]), ([Tank Energy 50]), ([Protect +1]) and ([Tank Part]). 
And the Deactivated Mechaniloid ([Big Monkey]).

This room is very special, the only enemies here are Zennydroppers!!! Hard to 
hit as they are this is probably the best place to farm zenny this early in 
the game. You can equip X with the Hawkeye Sub-weapon, which you'll get soon, 
and a Gain WE +5, then wipe them out with a single Charge Shot. Or equip 
Spider with 3 WE +5 and the Hawkeye Sub-Weapon, and hit them with a 
Diamond Card. When you're done farming you can return to HQ and finish any 
shopping you have left.


East Deck Main Route +revisited+ -
When you get back here take the north door this time. After dashing over a 
couple more red panels, you'll get a cutscene and fight two Preon Elites. 
Watch and/or skip a couple more cutscenes then pick up the ([Build WE]), 
([Build LE]) and a ([LE +100]) before leaving. 

Continue on past the last few red panels, the last two are tricky, there is a 
blue line on the ground infront of them, stand behind it and dash, you should 
land safely right between two sets of panels. Then just dash over the last
one and through the door.


Observation Deck Area -
Theres a path on the right, its kind of hard to see if you're not paying 
attention, at the end is a ([Figure Token]) x2 and the ([Queen of Hearts]).
Go back to the slope and head up, pick up the ([Tank Energy 50]) along the way
and go up the elevator.


Laboratory Approach -
Pick up ([1000z]) total and a ([Cure All]) along the path and keep going.


Gaudile Laboratory Central Analysis Room -
Here we finally meet Proferssor Gaudile, sadly he refuses to help you and is 
really stressed out over his daughter Cinnamon being kidnapped. Maybe if we 
save her we'll get on the Professor's good side.


Counter-Biohazzard Sample Storage -
Head straight picking up the ([Build Armor]), ([Build Speed]) and the 
([Gain WE +5]). When you enter the storage room you'll see a cutscene. After 
its done carry on picking up the ([Figure Token]) x2 on the way.


Eternal Forest -
This is area branches and forks in several directions. You'll have to fight
several gatekeepers to get through and depending on the path you take you'll
recieve various rewards. This is covered in detail in Section 8.

The quickest path to the exit though is:
[Right, Right]
 
You'll fight 4 Bat Bones, followed by 3 Wild Patrol Dogs.
And at the end you'll recieve a simple Tank Energy 25 from the reploid in the
Rare Item Storage room.


If you want a new weapon for Spider go:
[Right, Left, Left, Left]
 
You'll fight 4 Bat Bones, 2 Preon Chasers, 2 more Chasers with a Preon Spark 
and finally 3 Preon Sparks. You'll recieve Tank Energy 100 and a Backup from 
the reploid and a ([Joker]) will be laying on the ground. Its a powerful 
weapon and has the effects of all four suits of Spider's cards, but the 
effects are chosen totally random.


Rare Item Storage Room -
This is where the Eternal Forest eventually lets out at and depending on the 
path you took the reploid here will give you Items, Zenny and Tank Energy of
various amounts and there might be a couple Item Gems for you to collect too.

The south door will take you back to the beginning of the Eternal Forest where 
you can pick a different path, but it's locked for now so go west instead.


West Deck Main Route -
Follow the path and you'll eventually come to the aid of Marino and she'll 
join your party.

Marino is quite a nice addition to the team, she's super fast so it might be 
a good idea to give her the Exodus Force Metal to help flee battles you don't 
want to fight. She comes equipped with the Get Zenny+ and Hawkeye Sub-Weapons. 
The latter is one of the best Sub-Weapons in the game, for only 5 WE it 
guarantees your attacks will hit the enemy regardless of their evade. Also her 
Action Trigger lets you steal items with a 100% success rate, nice. Her Hyper 
Mode is good too, it boosts her speed by an incredible amount usually giving 
her multiple turns one after the other. While her attack is still weak 
compaired to others in Hyper Mode, she can use these extra turns to steal or 
throw Mega/Ultra Attack Items.

Now is a good time to try and steal that Gatling Buster I told you about 
or go back to "Room 102" and fight Zennydroppers if you're hard on cash and 
still got shopping to do.

Continue on the path and you'll reach another room with a ([Reboot]), a 
([Cure One]), a ([Tank Energy 50]) and a Deactivated Mechaniloid ([Mettaur]).

Save your progress in the next room, we got a big boss fight coming up.

Great Tree Stump Hall Approach -
Pick up the ([Gain Hyper]) and ([Tank Energy 100]). Make sure you're all 
healed up, this is a long battle we have coming up.

X should equip the Scope Buster and a couple Gain WE +5 Force Metals.

Spider should equip the Queen of Spades and 2 WE +5's, not the Gain WE's, 
I mean the ones that increases initial WE. His Max Erosion probably isn't 
high enough to take two Gain WEs right now.

Marino should equip a Gain WE +5 and give her Spider's Item Capture.

Massimo should equip the Protect Lance, Shock Lance has more Power but the 
next boss uses several status inflicting attacks and Protect Lance is 
better in that situation, and 2 Gain WE +5 Force Metals.

Put X, Spider and Marino as your opening party and leave Massimo in reserve.

When you're ready go through the door.

Strategy -
DO NOT USE ANY HYPERS FOR THIS FIGHT!

At the start of the fight Psyche will summon 3 Needles and will always summon
more if none are present during his turn. We can exploit this to where that's 
all Psyche ever does by killing all of the Needles before his next turn. 

That's where Spider comes in. Spider, with his 2 WE +5's, will get 75% WE 
right at the start. His Queen of Spades weapon will either kill all of the 
Needles in one hit, or put them in Final Strike range. Use Boost Speed to
ensure Spider has 1 turn for every one of Psyche's turns, and Boost Power to
ensure he can take out all of the Needles in one hit.

X should focus on Psyche with regular attacks and conserve WE for a Charge 
Shot just in case Spider can't wipe out all the Needles before Psyche's next 
turn.

Marino can steal his stuff with her Action Trigger if you like, if not swap 
out for Massimo instead and hit him with Regular Attacks and Berserk Charge.

When Psyche eventually falls don't celebrate just yet...

Strategy -
Mad Nautilus has a shell that protects him from attacks and if you hit him 
while it's closed he'll counter attack. Swap out Spider for Massimo if he's 
not already out. You can try stealing his Tractor Net if you want to, it's 
quite rare.

Have everyone Defend until the message "Infused Mad Energy Commence Core 
Heating" appears, he'll then use Mad Ecstacy and his shell will be open to 
attack. Throw X and Massimo into Hyper and let loose with the Action Triggers.
Even though he is an Air-type enemy Charge Collider should still do major 
damage. Marino and Spider will be better off throwing Mega/Ultra attack items.

This fight isn't that hard, it's just tedious.

After the fight you'll win another ([Sub Tank]) and a ([Virus Missile])...meh!

But you'll also get Cinnamon in your party. And access to her Force Metal

Gaudile gives the communication transmitter a boost allowing you to contact

But first talk to Nana and deploy mechaniloids to Gaudile's Labratory until 
they come back with the ([Generator]) Sub Weapon. This is THE BEST SUB WEAPON 
IN THE GAME! For absolutely no cost what-so-ever you get a +20 extra WE! Later 
you can farm some more and equip two on just about everybody and spam Action 
Triggers left and right.

Now lets go shopping while we wait on our mechs.

------------------------

Buy the King of Spades and Clubs for Spider, the Crash Hammer for Massimo, the 
Beam Chakram for Marino and a Metal Boxer for Cinnamon. And get a couple Ice 
Missiles for everyone.

You can ignore the X-Buster MKII, X should equip the Ice Buster you got ages 
ago instead. You didn't sell it did you?

Buy a few Protect 3+'s and a couple of Fire Guards, 4 or 5 should be enough, 
you can probably guess what the theme of the next dungeon is.

Then go back to Gaudile's Laboratory and fight Pararoids till you get 9 Mega
Blizzards since the stupid Item Shop guy still doesn't sell them yet.

Then go back to Lagrano Ruins and stock up on Ultra Blizzards at the Secret 
Shop. And get some Ultra Fires too, these can be mixed with those Protect +3's 
I told you to buy to make Fire Resist Force Metal, a stronger version of Fire 
Guard. Cinnamon will need to be Level 15 and have been hit by a Fire Element 
attack before she can make the Force Metal though, and it cost 3000 FME to 
make too.

You can buy Reboots and LE +300's and turn them into WE +10's which Spider 
will like as they'll free up a Force Metal slot.

You could also, if you want, mix the Item Capture Sub Weapon with a Gain 
Hyper to make a second Good Luck Force Metal to increase drop rates by another
3%.

You might also want to buy the Soul Saber if you have enough Zenny, its the 
cheapest weapon there.

When you're ready talk to Nana to start the next mission.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
New Enemies:
Oh boy we got a ton of new enemies today.

FIRE GLOB is a big red glob of molten ooze and recovers a bit of LE each turn.
It throws a nameless fireball that does Fire Elemental S-type damage and has 
this weird Non-Elemental S-type attack that looks like some sort of sonic 
weapon. It also uses "Mega Fire", "Giga Fire", and "Terra Fire" on a single 
party member each doing progressively stronger Fire Element damage. 
"Ultra Fire", "Ultra Giga Fire" and "Ultraflame" do the same on the entire 
party. It absorbs Fire and is weak to Water.

GULPFAST is a Fire version of Blowfish. It's got a 3-hit S-type normal attack.
It's "Armor Peeler" is Fire Element this time and still lowers Armor by 25%.
It'll use "Mega Fire" on one party member and curiously "Ultra Fire" on it's 
own group where it functions as a healing spell. Very weak to Water and you 
can steal a King of Diamonds from them.

SUPER TRIPUFFER accompany Gulpfasts and use a 3-hit C-type attack or "Shield 
Peeler" which is Fire Element and lowers Shield. When Gulpfast uses "Ultra 
Fire" on them they'll use "Mega Fire" on their next turn. Weak to Water.

MEGA MANTOR are tough cannon weilding turtles, like a fire spewing Blastoise.
They have a regular S-type attack, "Shell Bullet" is a painful C-type attack, 
and "Flame Ray" is a Fire Element S-type attack on the party. It's shell 
protects it from S-type attacks and it's of course weak to Water. If you can 
reduce it's LE by 1,000 it'll lose it's protective shell and won't be able to 
use Shell Bullet so hit it hard and fast with C-type attacks. Also hitting it 
with a Water Element attack will shut off Flame Ray. Drops an Ace of Clubs for 
Spider, be sure to get one as it's one of his best weapons.

PREON SHIELDER is something that isn't weak to Fire. One it's first turn it'll 
put up a "Counter Shield", this glowing blue force field blocks all S-type 
attacks. On it's next turn Preon Shielder will shoot it at you with "Force 
Shield", IT REALLY HURTS!!! You can knock it's shield out of commission with 
C-type attacks so bring in Marino and Massimo to knock it silly. Other than 
that it's just got a moderate S-type attack.

PREON SOLDIERS like the Elites before it has a shield that blocks S-type 
attacks, only it wields a sword instead of a gun. It'll use a normal C-type 
sword swipe, "Smash!" a C-type swipe with a random Power between 50%-150%, and 
damn it all "Life Gain 25" again.

PREON NURSE these healers buff and polish their friends with "Boost Power", 
"Boost Armor", "Boost Shield", "Boost Speed", "Life Gain 25" and "All L Gain 
25" which heals everybody. Normally I'd say take these out first, but 
actually this time you want to ignore them completely. Why? Because when they 
are the last enemy on the field they will surrender and use "All L Gain 25" on 
YOUR PARTY! Then if you let them live long enough to run away they'll say 
"Thanks" and the drop rate of their Injector weapon for Cinnamon will increase 
from 1% to 25%. Hello Nurse!

PREON TANKS use a normal C-type attack, "Flammable Oil" which increases the 
damage a party member takes from Fire attacks, and "Mega Fire". Accompanies 
other Fire attack users so kill them quickly before they oil your whole team.

PREON HYBRID are Berserkers. They start under the effects of Berserk and when 
attacked use "Break Shield" to exchange their Shield stat for more Power. Then 
follow up with a normal C-type attack or the stronger "Wild Attack". Once 
their Shield is down they make easy targets.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Smelting Furnace 1 -
Head straight down the hall to a large square room, an alarm will go off but 
don't worry you haven't been detected, someone is causing trouble elsewhere in 
the factory. In the large room is a small mechaniloid that will beep 3 times
before taking off and flying to the other side of the room.

DO NOT MOVE AFTER THE 3RD BEEP!!! 

The mechaniloid will detect you and you'll have to fight an enemy encounter.
Its like that silly game "Red Light / Green Light".

Anyway its safe to move when the mechaniloid is standing still so dash over to 
the west side of the room and pick up the ([Fire Guard]) and ([Figure Token]).
Then head through the west door and follow the hallway around to a large lava
filled room. Take the catwalk around and pick up the ([300FME]), ([1000z]) and
the Deactivated Mechaniloid ([Rush Loader]). 

Head through the east door and you'll end up in another room with those Red 
Light/Green Light Mechs. In this room there is a ([Build LE]), a 
([Figure Token]) and an ([Ultra Blizzard]) search around the crates to find 
them. Exit through the east door.


Smelting Furnace 2 -
Yet another room filled with crates and Red Light/Green Light Mechaniloids.
This room has a ([Figure Token]) and a ([Tank Part]). 

Head north for more Red Light/Green Light fun. This room has another
([Figure Token]), a ([Build WE]), ([800z]) and a ([Tank Energy 50]). 

Take the west door to another lava filled room. Follow the catwalk to a 
hallway with the ([King of Hearts]). The Deactivated Mechaniloid cannot be 
retrieved until you find his missing "Ball and Chain", no not his wife!

Back to the last Red Light/Green Light room and head east this time.


Smelting Furnace 3 -
There will be no more Red Light/Green Light from here on, yay!

In the first room there is a ([Build Speed]) behind the crates on the west 
wall. The next room has a ([Boost Speed]) on the west side of the room and a 
([Tank Energy 50]) on the east.

Also when you walk into the center of this room you'll trigger a cutscene and
Axl will appear and join your party. Axl's pretty interesting, his Action 
Trigger lets him use the Special Attacks of all the Bosses you've beaten. 
Which is weird cause isn't that what X is suppose to do? This also makes Axl 
one of the most versatile characters as he's abile to hit all elemental 
weaknesses and use both C and S-type attacks without having to switch into 
Hyper Mode.

And curiously, just like Spider, Axl's Hyper Mode renders him immune to all 
damage, but also burns out real quick, he's only got 2 Hyper Mode Turns. 
Hmm...both Spider and Axl have the exact same Hyper Modes?!? What could this 
mean?...DRAMATIC FORESHADOWING!!!

Forget that for now and head west to another lava filled room, this one has an
([Aero Buster]) and a ([Mini Battery]) Key Item.

Go back to where you met Axl and take the east door.


Freight Check Line -
Nothing to see here, move along.


Parts Intake Line -
Now we have a bunch of conveyor belts and computer terminal that control their
direction. Its not too hard to navigate. I'll try and draw a map though.

Head to 1 and pick up ([1000z]).

Then head to 4, you'll have to fight a group of 2 Preon Soldiers and a Preon
Gunner, pick up the ([Tank Energy 25]).

Go to 5, pick up the ([Gain Hyper]), then use the terminal to change the 
direction of the conveyor belts.

Now go straight across to 3, you'll fight 3 Preon Shielders, and pick up the 
([WE +5]). head North to the exit.

This one is a little harder...well not really.

Pick up the ([Figure Token]) at 1.

Then go to 2, pick up the ([Figure Token]) there.

Go to 3, you'll fight 3 Preon Soldiers, pick up another ([Figure Token]).

Go to 6, nab the ([Figure Token]) and hit the Computer Terminal.

Go to 5 and another ([Figure Token]).

Go to 8, you'll fight 2 Preon Shielders and a Preon Nurse, grab another
([Figure Token]).

Go to 9 for another ([Figure Token]).

Now head for 10 for a fight with 2 Preon Soldiers and a Preon Nurse, grab the 
last ([Figure Token]) and head up to the exit.


Freight Lift 1 -
Be sure to save at the Save Point before going up the lift. Check the dead 
bodies for a ([Fire Guard]) and an ([Ice Missile]), they won't be needing 
them. And pick up the Deactivated Mechaniloid ([Killer Mantis]) before you 
leave.


Computer Room -
Pick up the ([Build Armor]), ([Build Shield]) and the ([Hunter Missile]). The 
North Door is locked so take the west door. This is the last chance to double 
back to the Save Point and return to HQ to rest and resupply.


Freight Lift 2 -
Take the lift up and head through the door.


Assembly Line Monitor Room - 
Head forward and you'll trip a cutscene. YAY! Zero's back in the party, GROUP 
HUG!

Pick up the ([Build Power]) and ([Backup]) right behind you before you leave,
it's easy to miss them.


Computer Room +Revisited+ -
The north door is unlocked so take it, you can't go back to the Save Point 
anyway.


Computer Room Corridor -
Ok take the ([Tank Energy 100]) x2 and the ([Gain Hyper]).


Before we go any further lets check our equipment.

X should have the Ice Buster and one Fire Resist, a Fire Guard and any Gain 
WE +5s you can fit on him.

Zero should have the Soul Saber, if you bought it. Give him the Hawkeye and 
put one Fire Resist and a Fire Guard on him. His Erosion is probably capped 
out so try to fill the last slot with whatever, a WE +10 would do nice if 
it'll fit.

Axl is stuck with his Axl Bullets. Give him the Generator, a Gain WE +5, and 
a couple Fire Guards. His Erosion probably isn't high enough to fit a Fire 
Resist.

Spider gets the Ace of Clubs, if you got a Mega Mantor to drop it, King will 
work if not. And for Force Metal put on a WE +10, a Fire Resist, and a Fire 
Guard.

Massimo should equip the Crash Hammer and two Fire Resists.

Marino should stick to the Beam Chakram. And again, put a Fire Resist and a
Fire Guard on her.

Cinnamon only needs one Fire Guard as her Elemental Resistance is already at 
50% by default, and put any Gain WE +5's you can fit on her too.

Put X, Zero and Axl up front.

Ready? Ok here we go.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Strategy -
This boss is the hardest you've fought so far. He's flying way up in the air 
so C-type attacks will hardly hit him, unless you have Hawkeye equipped. You 
can knock Mach Jentler to the ground if you do more than 1,000 damage in a 
single hit. Then he'll be vulnerable to C-type Attacks like X's Charge 
Collider.

Jentler starts the battle with a Preon Tank and Soldier by his side and will
use Gentle Call to summon random Preons to replace them if they're destroyed.

Axl, with a Generator and Gain WE+5, will be getting 50% weapon energy every
turn. So he should spam Silver Horn's Tidal Wave Action Trigger. When Axl uses
it, it does Water Element damage to everything instead of percentage based 
damage.

X should attack Jentler normally if he's up in the air, or use Mega/Ultra
Blizzards. If he is on the ground and X has 100% WE, use X Fire's Charge 
Collider. 

Zero should pound any Preon Soldiers or Nurses that get summoned as they can 
heal Jentler with Life Gain 25. When Zero's WE is 100% switch him into Hyper 
and use Hawkeye to make sure his Zero Slashes connect if Jentler is in the 
air. You could use Dragon Slash as it was designed to work on Air-type enemies 
but I find I can only do 6-7 of them instead of 15-16 Zero Slashes.

You probably won't even need anybody else, but if you do;

Spider should throw Mega/Ultra Blizzards or attack normally.

Massimo should clear away the Preons and Berserk Charge Jentler when he can.

Marino can throwing Blizzards and pop Jentler when he is stunned with her 
Action Trigger.

Cinnamon is on Blizzard duty and you can heal with her Action Trigger when 
needed.

==============================================================================
WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING BOSS FIGHT WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING
==============================================================================
After the fight you'll win a new ([Sub Tank]) and a ([Fire Buster MKII]).

But don't celebrate just yet. You now have to fight four battles with four
different groups of Preon-type enemies.

The first fight is easy, just 2 Preon Sparks and 2 Preon Chasers. Axl using
Mach Jentler's Flames of Gehenna, which he just got. Should kill them in one 
hit.

Second rounds a little harder, 2 Preon Shielders and 2 more Preon Sparks.
Flames of Gehenna will take out the Sparks. Use C-type attacks for the 
Shielders.

Third round is with a Preon Spark, Preon Shielder, Preon Hybrid and a Preon 
Chaser. Flames of Gehenna again.

Last round is with four Preon Hybrids! They're pretty weak after they all use
Breal Shield. X can take them out all at once with a 100% Charge Shot.

If you're having trouble just throw any remaining Ultra items you may have.

Save after the cutscene and we're done with this chapter.

Back at HQ Zero will throw a hissy-fit for no good reason, must be robo-PMS 
or something. Anyway Redips calls and gives you info on your next mission, 
The Gimilla Force Metal Mines.

Although it isn't neseccary right now you can deploy mechs to Ulfat Factory
and get a ([Reverse Fire]) Force Metal which will allow the equipper to
absorb Fire Elemental attacks.

Anyway lets see if there is anything new in town.

Damn shopkeepers, we could have used those Ice Weapons in the last mission!

Pick up the three Elemental Sabers for Zero anyway.

I suggest getting the Massive Lance Beta for Massimo and the Mettaur Crash for
Axl, it'll come in real handy in the next mission. X should equip the Aero 
Buster. Marino should keep the Beam Chakram.

Well that was short.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
New Enemies:

BAT FIGHTER is an upgraded Bat Bone. Uses the same Bat Bone sonic S-type 
attack. And adds "Cracking" an S-type attack that inflicts Berserk. As well as
"Bite Energy" a 6-hit C-type attack that drains 5% of your LE with each hit.
They also have the curious 6-hit C-type "Destroy Ally" attack if you inflict
Berserk on them. Weak just like it's predecessor.

RUSH LOADER always comes in groups of three. They only uses a ramming C-type 
attack. When the first of their group is destroyed the remaining Rush Loaders 
get mad and next turn will use "Frenzied Dash" a stronger C-type attack. When 
only one Rush Loader remains it gets super pissed off and uses "Explosive 
Dash" a kamikaze C-type attack that really hurts. Best thing to do is take 
them all out at once with wide attacks like X's Charge Shot or Axl's Flames 
of Gehenna. They have a Beam Wonder weapon for Marino to steal and drop Power 
Charge Sub Weapons.

PLASMA GLOB is exactly like it's brother Fire Glob only Thunder Elemental.
Uses Thunder Elemental versions of Fire Glob's attacks and absorbs Thunder.
It's weak to Fire.

LIQUID GLOB completes the Glob Family, but unlike it's brothers it DOESN'T
absorb Water. And most of it's attacks are completely different. It still uses 
the Blob's normal S-type attack, "Giga Blizzard" and "Ultrastream", but it'll
also use "Death Gravity" and "Coercion". The latter of which is a Water 
Element S-type attack that has a chance of delaying your next turn. It also 
has a chance of blocking any attack by cushioning the blow with it's liquid
body. Even though it resists Water it's still a good idea to hit it with a 
Water attack. Why? Because the thing will ice up and freeze solid XD! When 
inflicted with Freeze, Armor and Shield are greatly decreased and it can't 
move. Freeze it, then shatter it with a strong attack.

METTAUR COUNTER is a new type of Mettaur and has a few new tricks. When hit 
by either a C or an S-type attack it will duck under it's helmet, block
the same type of attack, and counter attack. The secret is to alternate
between C and S-type attacks, never hitting him with the same type twice.
Other than that he's pretty much an ordinary Mettaur. He's got uses their 
usual 4-hit S-type gun and "Shell Breaker Wave". He'll also use
"Electromagnetic Field" to inflict Bind on your whole party.

METTAURCURE is the field medic of the Mettaur Clan. Always hides under it's 
helmet so S-type attacks are out. It's got the usual Mettaur 4-hit S-type gun
and "Mettock Strike". Also uses "Life Gain 25", "All L Gain 25", all four 
"Boost (stat)" abilities, and a new one "Refresh" which heals status effects.
What makes them really interesting is they drop...GENERATORS!!! *squee*

SILVER METTAURS use the usual Mettaur tricks as well as "Mega Blizzard", 
"Ultra Blizzard", and "Life Gain 50" to heal. They have an Ace of Diamonds 
for steal and drop Beam Miracle for Marino. Beam Miracles double the zenny 
of a defeated enemy, which is good because these things drop 2500 zenny if
you can KO them in one hit! Tucked under their helmet as they are you'll 
need to use a strong C-type attack like a Power Charged Massimo or Axl's
Rolling Thunder.

GOLD METTAURS are even better, they drop 7000 zenny!!! They have a lot more
LE so you might need to use Hyper Mode, but 7000 zenny is well worth it. Only
new attack that have is "Giga Thunder".

This chapter is going to be fun.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Level 1 Shaft Enterance -
the main room has an ([Ultra Fire]), ([Ultra Blizzard]) and ([Ultra Thunder]). 
There is a Save Point is in the corner. Take the elevator down to Level 2.

Level 2 Main Tunnel -
Head straight into the main room and snag the ([Anti-Lock]), ([1200z]) and the
([DOA Protection]). Take the south door and pick up the ([Figure Token]) x2 
then turn around and take the west door.


L2 Southwest Division -
Go straight a short ways and take a left through the door to find a small side
room where you'll fight 3 Rush Loaders. After the fight you'll get the 
([Booster Parts]) Key Item, which allows X to break the many boulders laying 
around the mines with his Dash. Go back out and try it on the two boulders 
laying nearby and pick up the ([Mini Motor]).


Level 2 Main Tunnel +revisited+ -
Take the door on the east side of the hallway now.


L2 Southeast Division -
Head straight and pick up the ([Ace of Spades]) in the small closet. Now go 
back and break the boulders and check to other room for a ([Figure Token]).


Level 2 Main Tunnel +revisited II+ -
We're done with this side of the mine so return to the main room and take the 
north door. There's a Save Point and a door blocked by some boulders, but first
take the door immediately to your right.


L2 Northeast Division - 
Take the right path and pick up the ([800FME]). Take the left and you'll reach
a room with several boulders and a Deactivated Mechaniloid ([Mega Mantor]) 
however it needs a "Mini Battery", which you should have picked up in the 
Ulfat Factory. The room behind the Mega Mantor has a ([Build LE]). The room 
behind the boulders has a ([Tank Part]).


Level 2 Main Tunnel +revisited III+ -
Now take the door across from the Save Point.


L2 Northwest Division - 
Search each room and you'll find ([Figure Token]) x3 and a Deactivated 
Mechaniloid ([Bat Bone]). 


Level 2 Main Tunnel +revisited IV+ -
Now break the two boulders and activate the Computer Terminal and the elevator
will be able to go to the 3rd floor. Save first before you go down and now
would be a good time to return to HQ and rest/restock. When you're ready take 
the elevator to the 3rd floor basement.


Level 3 Main Tunnel -
There's a boss fight behind the door. It would be a good idea to farm Mettaur
Cures for their Generators, about 5-6 should do. It'll take awhile as it's a 
1% drop and with two Good Lucks it increases to about 7% I think. But 
Generators are freaken sweet!

Give X the Aero Buster, or Turbo Buster from the Lagrano Secret Shop, and two
Generators. Equip him with two Gain WE +5s too.

Make sure Axl has the Mettaur Crash, one Generator, and at least one Gain 
WE +5 so he can spam Action Triggers every turn.

All Spider needs is an Ace of Clubs and a WE +10 to kick butt.

Give Massimo the Massive Lance Beta, or Interceptor from the Secret Shop, and
two Generators. Then fill him full of Gain WE +5s

Marino should keep the Beam Chakram, and if you can spare them give her two
Generators. Although they're a bloody pain to farm.

Cinnamon gets the Kitty Gloves if you bought them, and a Generator if you have 
one to spare. And fill her full of Gain WE +5s.

Put X, Axl and either Spider or Massimo up front.

Ready? Here we go...

Strategy - 
Finally we get to bash this traitor's face in.

Don't bother with Hyper Modes for this fight.

X should just attack normally and build WE with his Generators. Save his 
Charge Shot for when Shadow starts charging Pulverizer Cannon. It's 
guaranteed critical is good for stunning Shadow and canceling his attack.

Axl should pound away with Rolling Thunder every turn.

Spider should just throw cards at him.

Have Massimo use Power Charged attacks, or Berserk Charge every turn if you 
gave him any Generators.

Marino can try stealing his Gain Hyper and Unlock Limiter, the latter is
especially nice for players who feel using Hyper Modes is too easy.

Cinnamon with a Generator and Energy Field makes for an effective battery. Use
her to help charge WE and recover LE.

After the fight a cutscene will play and Zero will appear out of nowhere and 
rejoin your party. Ready for round 2!

Strategy -
Hmm..all that talk and what?!? 10,000 more LE, 10 more Power and 35 more Speed
while sacrificing Armor. What an idiot.

Really he's no different than a few seconds ago, just use the same strategy as
before. And feel free to use Hyper Modes to end the fight quickly.

Zero should do excellent damage even if he's not equipped for this fight, he's
stuck with the stuff he had for Mach Jentler, because of Shadows 0 Armor stat.

==============================================================================
WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING BOSS FIGHT WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING
==============================================================================

After the fight you'll get a ([Figure Token]) and a new saber for Zero, the 
([Z Ichimonji]), while not as powerful as the Soul Saber it hits twice and 
ignores the Armor stat of the enemy. On the down side it only uses 40% of
Zero's Power.


Take the north door all the way to the end of the hall and talk to the big
Construction Reploid. He needs some "Electrical Components" to fix the 
terminal behind him, but one of the Degravers took them, he'll give you the
([Red Pick Axe]) Key Item it left behind. Now lets go find the mechaniloid 
it belongs to.

Turn around and take the first door on the right.

L3 Northwest Division -
Way in the back hiding in the shadows is the Red Degraver, give him the "Red
Pick Axe" in exchange for the ([Yellow Pick Axe]) and ([Electrical Component])
Key Items. Grab the ([Figure Token]) next to him and backtrack a bit to find a
Yellow Degraver and trade the "Yellow Pick Axe" for his ([Blue Pick Axe]).

Before we leave, check the rooms behind both Degravers for ([1300z]), an 
([Ace of Hearts]) and a Deactivated Mechaniloid ([Degraver]).


Level 3 Main Tunnel +revisited+ -
Head all the way South to find the Blue Degraver and two ([Figure Tokens]). 
Trade your "Blue Pick Axe" for his ([Green Pick Axe]). Make a note of the 
locked door next to him. 

Now return to the Northern corridor and take the east door.


L3 Northeast Division -
Inside is the Green Degraver. Trade your "Green Pick Axe" for his 
([White Pick Axe]) and ([Trade Sheet]) Key Items. I have no idea what the
White Axe is for, I think it was suppose to be used to get that deactivated 
Degraver from earlier, but it just sits useless in your inventory.

Check the room behind the Green Degraver for ([Force Missiles]). Now return to
the Construction Reploid and give him the "Electrical Components" and the 
elevator can now reach the 4th floor basement. Give him the "Trade Sheet" and 
he'll give you the ([Infinite Resist]) Force Metal, there are only 2 of these 
in the game.


Level 4 Main Tunnel -
In the main room is a Save Point and a bunch of items. ([Build Power]), 
([Build Armor]), ([Build Shield]), ([Build Speed]) and ([Build WE]).

Head south to find 3 doors, one of them is locked. Behind the right door is a
([Fire Guard]), ([Water Guard]) and ([Thunder Guard]).

The left door contains 3 small rooms and in each one you'll have to fight 
three sets of Glob enemies.

The first room has two Plasma Globs and a Fire Glob, easy pickings. Axl's 
Flames of Gehenna will take out the Plasma Globs.

The second has two Fire Globs and a Liquid Glob. Axl's Tidal Wave will
clear them out.

The third room has two Liquid Globs and a Plasma Glob, again Freeze the two 
Liquids with Tidal Wave and you should have no trouble. After all three rooms 
have been cleared the Boss door will be unlocked. 


Now would be a good time to buy all the super expensive weapons from the
Lagrano Secret Shop if you haven't already. The 3rd floor is where you
can farm Gold Mettaurs for lots of money and potentially more Generators.

Also with everyone present and equipped with some of the strongest weapons in 
the game it's a great time to take on the Eternal Forest back in Gaudile's 
Labratory. It contains many enemies and items you won't encounter for quite a 
while. You can get a 3rd Good Luck Metal, an Insect Killer for Axl, and if 
you're really lucky a Z-Rapier+ for Zero, which is one of his best weapons.
And lots of EXP, Zenny and FME.


The following tip comes from SigmaZeroX:
Once Massimo reaches Level 20, 21 or 22. Equip him with the Interceptor, two
Power Charges, and two Power +3s. Return to Lagrano Ruins and fight a random 
battle. Destroy all of the enemies except one and defend until Massimo has
100% Weapon Energy. Put Massimo into Hyper Mode, use the two Power Charges,
and pass the turn with the B Button. On Massimo's next turn he should have 65%
WE so use his Action Trigger and fill up his Attack and Critical meters. 
If Massimo inflicts 10,000 damage with Berserk Charge, he will gain the 
"Multistage" ability. "Multistage" will allow Berserk Charge to inflict up to
12 additional hits!

You should also focus on leveling up Zero's Action Trigger. If you input a
combined total of 300 combos, Zero will gain the "Zero Wave Slash", which is
a C-type attack with a random Power of 40%-150% (the game incorrectly says 
it's 50%-200%). Inputting 999 total combos will unlock the "Zero Skull Crush",
which is a guaranteed critical hit!


If you've been playing for 20+ hours now and Cinnamon is at least Level 30,
she can make Gain WE +10s using a Backup, LE +300, and a Gain WE +5 for the 
cost of 5000 FME. If she's not at Level 30 and you don't feel like power
leveling have her make Water Resist and Thunder Resist Force Metals.

For me, everyone's levels was in the 30's. This is most certainly overleveled
for this point in the game. Now there are two ways we can fight the next boss,
we can hit him hard and fast or take things a bit slower.


Hard and Fast; Equip X with the Turbo Buster and two Generators and give him
a Gain WE +10, or two Gain WE +5s. 

Zero should equip the Thunder Saber, two Generators and a couple WE +10s.

Give Axl the Insect Killer, a Generator, and a Power Charge. And equip him
with a Gain WE +10, or two Gain WE +5s

Spider is still stuck with an Ace Of Clubs and a WE +10.

Massimo gets the Interceptor, a Generator, a Power Charge, and a Gain WE +10.

Marino is better off with Beam Chakram, two Generators and a Gain WE +10.

Cinnamon should equip the Kitty Gloves, a Generator, her Energy Field and
fill her full of Gain WE +10s.

Put X, Zero, and Axl up front.


Slow and Steady; Is pretty much the same except instead of Gain WE+ 10s, equip
Fire Resist, Water Resist and Thunder Resist on X and Spider. Zero and Axl's
Erosion is probably too low to equip all three. Maybe give Zero a Water Resist
to block Incentas' initial Water attacks.

Give Cinnamon a Fire Guard, Water Guard, Thunder Guard and two Generators.

Put X, Zero and Spider up front.


Grab the ([Gain Hyper]) and ([Tank Energy 100]) infront of the Boss Door and 
get ready.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Strategy -
This guy may look tough, but he's got a serious weakness...several actually.
Each turn he'll change his elemental properties and attack you using the 
corresponding element. He'll also take 200% damage from the opposite element.

We can exploit this easily. One his first turn he will always change to Water
Element and will be weak to Thunder.

If you're using the Fast Strategy:
Have Axl go into Hyper Mode and use a Generator to push his WE up to 80%, then
use a Power Charge before activating his Action Trigger. Wild Jango's Rolling
Thunder will do tremendous damage.

Zero should shift into Hyper Mode and push his WE up as high as it will go
with Generators and use Skull Crush if you unlocked it. This should just 
about kill Incentas right there.


If you're using the Slow Strategy:
The opening turn is mostly the same. Have Zero shift into Hyper Mode and do
as much damage as possible with his Thunder Saber. On his next turn swap him
out for Cinnamon. X should be using Generators to charge WE and use Charge
Collider when he is at 100%. Spider should attack with his Ace of Clubs 
or throw an Ultra (Element) item, if you nail Incentas' weakness they'll do 
2000 damage!

By now Incentas should be using his "Hyper!" attacks, and they hurt at lower 
levels. So have Cinnamon on healing duty. When Incentas is weak to Thunder
again swap out Spider for Zero. Zero should have about 25% WE and his two 
Generators will make it 65%. It's not much but he'll still do major damage
with his Action Trigger.

WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING BOSS FIGHT WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING
==============================================================================

After the fight you'll pick up the ([Twin Ice]) and ([Twin Thunder]) Sub 
Weapons. Incentas activates a trap and Spider sacrifices himself to save
everyone. See why I told you not to use any Build items on him. 

I call dibs on his hat!

New Enemies:

METTAUR GIGANT is huge...a huge coward. It likes to run away. It also has a 
powerful shield that blocks C and S-type attacks so killing it before it can 
run away is difficult. There is a trick though, if you can steal its Tank 
Energy 10 you'll make it angry, very very angry! It will drop it's shield, 
will no longer flee, and resort to the usual Mettuar attacks like the 4-hit 
S-type gun and "Mattock Strike". It'll use "Mega, Tera, or Ultra Giga Fire" 
and "Hell Gravity" which reduces the entire party's LE by 50%. It drops the 
Jet Guillotine weapon for Massimo.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------


After everyone is done mourning Spider's apparent death, deploy mechs to the 
Gimialla Mines until they come back with the ([Gimialla Key]) and the 
([Reverse Thunder]) Force Metal, this will become useful later.

Also deploy mech to Tianna Camp till they return with the ([Tianna Key]).
Actually you could have gotten this ealier, but its definitely better to wait
until now to do it because you'll Zero back and he'll be a huge help.

While we're waiting on our mechs lets check in on the shops.

There is really not much here, but get the Z Rapier for Zero if you didn't
get the upgraded version from the Eternal Forest. It's not as powerful, but 
don't be fooled, it's a pretty solid weapon and comboed with Heat Haze it'll
chew through most enemies.

And pick up a few Minus Metals, they're really nice for equipping strong
Force Metal on party members with low Erosion, like Zero.

Once you do have the "Gimialla Key", return to the mines and go to the 3rd 
Floor Basement and return to the door near the Blue Degraver. Walk up to the 
locked door and it'll automatically open.

Gimialla Mines:
L3 Southwest Division -
This area is the best place to farm zenny. Gold and Silver Mettaurs are all
over the place in here. To bad you've probably already bought everything 
expensive by now. If only they dropped lots of FME too.

In the north and south rooms you'll find two ([Figure Tokens]).

These small rooms are also the only place in the game where you will find 
"Mettaur Gigants!". Be sure to pick up a Jet Guillotine from one, it's weaker 
than the Intercepter, but it looks sweet. IT'S A GIANT FRICKEN ENERGY SCYTHE!
How cool is that. It targets every enemy unit and combos well with a Hawkeye 
to eliminate entire groups of weak enemies.

Near the south room you'll also find a deactivated Gold Blader, but you need
a "Heavy Motor" before you can pick it up, which you haven't got yet.


Once you have the "Tianna Key" prepare yourself for one of the hardest bosses
in the game. Make sure everyone is around Level 30 and you have a full set of 
Generators, Gain WE +10s, Gain Hypers and everyone has their strongest 
weapons. If you have gotten the Bait Sub Weapon from the Eternal Forest equip 
it to Axl. And maybe use your Build Hypers on him to increase the time he can
stay in Hyper Mode. When you're read return to Tianna Camp.


Maze Area 1 -
Turn left and the "Tianna Key" will open the locked door. You'll have two 
paths, the Left path leads to a Deactivated Mechaniloid ([Radar Killer]), the
left leads to the first Super Boss of the game RAFFLESIAN! And no I do not 
know how to pronounce that. Put X, Zero, and Axl up front if you gave Axl the
Bait Sub Weapon and used a couple Build Hypers. Put Cinnamon in his place if 
you didn't.

Strategy -
Rafflesian has an auto recover ability, she'll regain 25% of her LE every turn
and even worse her Power and Speed increase too! So the longer the fight drags 
on the stronger and faster she gets.

Belledonna's have a similar ability, but their stats only increase when they 
take damage. So the best thing to do is ignore them completely and focus all 
your attention on Rafflesian. Oh and avoid wide attacks like X's Charge Shot!
 
You can throw Axl into Hyper Mode to make him completely immune to damage then
use Bait to draw enemy fire. The only attacks that can hurt you now is
Ultra Giga Blizzard and Sunburst!

If you don't have Bait just have Cinnamon on constant heal duty.

Massimo's Berserk Charge is especially good against Rafflesian if you've 
unlocked his Critical and Multistage meters. And with two Generators he
can fire them off every turn.

Then just pound Rafflesian with X and Zero's Hyper Mode Action Triggers.

==============================================================================
WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING BOSS FIGHT WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING
==============================================================================
After the fight you'll win a ([Figure Token]) and a ([Tank Part]). And
behind where Rafflesian was standing two more ([Figure Tokens]) and X's
([Ultimate Armor]). This thing is awesome, it's a new Hyper Mode that decks
X out in like a million guns!!! And it grants the Action Trigger NOVA STRIKE
which is exactly the same as a Final Strike. Kind of lame actually...but it
looks sweet!

Well we're done here for now so you can head back to HQ and rest then get 
ready for your next mission.

New Enemies:

D-REX are an upgrade to the D-Shark, you remember, those big behemoths from
Tianna Camp. They use the same normal 3-hit S-type attack. "Fatal Attack",
"Ultra Giga Fire" and "Heterostorm". The latter inflicts Virus and Blind to
the entire party. And they also use "Mini Rex" which sends 3 miniature bombs 
hopping towards you, they would be cute if they didn't hurt so much. Repeated 
C-type attacks will prevent this.

GOLD BLADER use "Breed Gold" to summon two Mettaurs of the Gold and Silver 
varity. Then only attack with a 6-hit S-type attack. If you kill the Mettaurs,
and why shouldn't you, it will run away. You don't want this thing to run away 
as it drops two very valuable items. The first is an Item Capture Sub Weapon
which you can make into Good Luck Force Metal, and the second...is actual
GOOD LUCK FORCE METAL!!! You are definitely going to want to fight these until
you have 9 Good Lucks.

MEGA TORTOISE is an upgraded Mega Mantor. It always starts off with "Jamming"
which inflicts Blind on the party. It also has a normal S-type attack, "Shell
Bullet", "Mega Blizzard", and a new attack called "Phalanx" which is an S-type
attack on the whole party. It has the same barrier as Mega Mantor too. Break 
it and you'll prevent Shell Bullet. Other than that it's pretty dull. It drops 
Blind Block Force Metal which can help from having to heal the effects of 
Jamming all the time.

MELTDOWNS are big ticking time bombs. They do nothing for 3 turns then it uses 
"Atomic Fall" which does 9,999 damage! Kill them before they go off. They drop
a fair bit of FME, 6,000 to be exact. Properly boosted with a Final Strike and
Lucky Girl Force Metal that can easily reach 15,000+!

PREON S BOTOS is the first of the Preon Special Forces, each modeled after one
of Epsilons top generals. He'll use "Mega Fire", "Bit Shift" to summon a Big
Bit, "Defend" to reduce damage till it's next turn, and "Self-Destruct" when 
it's LE falls below 1300 which does damage equal to it's remaining LE. Has a
shield like all Preon Special Forces that blocks S-type attacks so C-type is
the way to go. Weak to Water.

BIGBITs use a normal S-type attack, "Stun Gun", "Smokeout", "Virus Attack", 
"Cracking", "Cryogenics" and "Codebreaker" to inflict status effects.

PREON S FERHAM is the second of the Preon Special Forces. Uses a 3-hit C-type
sword combo. "Mega, Giga and Ultra Blizzard", "Power Leak", "Armor Peeler" and
"Energy Sword" which fires an S-type bolt of energy with 50% Power. Weak to 
Thunder.

TRICLAW KILLER is an upgraded Radar Killer, those weird three-legged things
from Gaudile's Lab. It uses "Bull's Eye", "Split Maser", and can use "Focus
Maser" without locking on. It drops Hawkeye Sub Weapons.

WILD DOGS travel in packs and have a normal C-type bite attack, "Riot", and 
use "Lunatic" an S-type attack that inflicts Berserk. Nothing special about 
them.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Quicksand -
Well Nana drops you right in the middle of a sandstorm, wonderful. It's not 
too hard to navigate. There are these radar towers with cables running into 
the ground everywhere, if you follow the direction the cables point towards 
you'll get to the exit eventually, but you'll miss out on a few items. 

It's better if I draw up a map.

A2 is a Deactivated Mechaniloid ([Mega Mantor]), needs "Mini Battery".
A3 A dead Gold Mettaur holds a ([Mini Battery]), guess where this goes.
B6 A dead Mettaurcure, holding a ([Figure Token]).
C1 Has a dead Mettaur, holding the ([Doubletooth]) weapon for Zero.
C6 Another dead Mettaurcure with a ([Figure Token]).
D5 Yet another dead Mettaurcure with a ([Figure Token]).
E4/5 A dead Mettaur holds a ([Tank Part])

Once you're done treasure hunting head for the exit. You can barely see it 
through the sandstorm, its the small white light in the distance. When you
reach it, you'll find the door is locked. Go around back and examine the 
Jamming Tower with 100% signal strength and follow the cables off into the 
desert and you'll walk into a cutscene.


Quicksand South Side -
You'll wake up in some underground tunnels, nearby is a save point. This place
is like a maze and its easy to get turned around. Grab the ([Tank Energy 50]), 
then follow the path to the north, you'll find a ([Vaccine Program]) and a 
strange Red Switch in a corner, Push it and a lock will deactivate somewhere. 

Return to where you found the Tank Energy and head west this time. You'll pass
a locked door with a Blue Lock on it, around the corner is the Blue Switch 
that unlocks it. Inside the room are a ([Build Power]), ([Build Armor]), 
([Build Shield]), ([Build Speed]) and the Deactivated Mechaniloid 
([Liquid Glob]), but it needs a "Cyber Liquid". Continue following the tunnels
to the north. 

When you reach a ([Cooler]) take a right to find a second Red Switch, push it.
Turn around and follow the tunnel north, but take the second left for a Yellow
Switch, the next door has the third Red Switch.


Quicksand North Side -
Infront of you will be a locked door with a Yellow Lock on it. Past it will be
a ([Cure All]), take the next right for a ([Build Hyper]) and the second
Yellow Switch. Return to the locked door for ([800FME]) total.

Keep going and you'll pass another room that should be unlocked if you hit all
of the Red Switches. Inside is ([3800z]) total and a ([Ball and Chain Hammer])
Key Item.

Head back out and you'll eventually reach a Save Point and an elevator.

But before we take it I want to point out this area is the only place you'll 
find Gold Bladers! Stick around and farm them until you get 9 Good Luck Metals 
and equip them on your reserve party members. They make getting rare drops so 
much easier.

When you're ready take the elevator up to the 1st Floor.


Quicksand Central Passageway -
Take the north door then turn left and enter the only unlocked room on the 
floor.


Signal Jammer Laser Energy Control Room -
This room contains a Laser Puzzle. The goal is to rotate the mirrors placed
around the room to reflect a green laser and short out the control box on the 
wall with it. Hitting the Green Panels on the walls will unlock items in the 
room above.

First turn mirror 1 so the beam hits the control box on the west wall, then
turn the mirror 2 so the beam hits the green panel on the north wall.

Grab the two ([Figure Tokens]). Before we leave I want to point out that in 
these Laser Rooms you'll fight Triclaw Killers, these guys drop Hawkeye Sub 
Weapons, so be sure to get a couple. Hawkeyes are great on melee characters
like Zero, Massimo and Marino as it allows them to hit pesky Air-type enemies 
that like to dodge their close range C-type attacks.

Return to the elevator and head to the 2nd Floor.


Signal Jammer Laser Energy Generator -
Take the north door and grab the two ([Figure Tokens]) at opposite ends of the 
hallway, then enter the northwest room. If you hit the green panel like I told
you then the ([Thunder Stella]) should be unlocked. Examine the computer 
terminal then return to the 1st Floor.


Quicksand Central Passageway +revisited+ -
All the other rooms are unlocked now. Lets start with the southwest one.

(SW Laser Puzzle Room)

This puzzle is a little different, there is a Rebellion Emblem on the wall.
If you hit the emblem you'll set off an alarm and have to fight a random
encounter, so DON'T!

First turn the mirror 1 so it's facing the target and not the alarm. Then
turn the mirror 2 so the beam hits the panel on the south wall. Turn the 
mirror 3 so the beam hits the target. And finally turn mirror 4 for to hit 
the last green panel.

Theres a ([Tank Energy 50]) and a Deactivated Mechaniloid ([Pararoid]) in the 
corner that needs a "Mini Motor", which you should have gotten in Gimialla.


Now lets do the Southeast room.

This is simple, just turn mirror 1 to hit the target then turn mirror 2 to
hit the east green panel.

In the center of the room is the Key Item ([Cyber Liquid]), when we're done 
here be sure to go back to the basement and get the Liquid Glob Mechaniloid 
we saw earlier.

First turn mirror 1 away from the alarm. Then turn mirror 2, 3, and 4 to hit
all the target and panels.

In this room are two more ([Figure Tokens]). Return to the 2nd Floor when 
you're done.


Signal Jammer Laser Energy Generator +revisited+ -
Now all the rooms up here are unlocked. Take the west door picking up the
([Figure Token]) and check the southwest room first. In it is a 
([Fire Resist]) and a ([Combat Absorber]). Deactivate the terminal.

Next is the southeast room, outside it is another ([Figure Token]), inside is
a ([Shot Absorber]) and another terminal.

Last we have the northeast room and a ([Build LE]) and ([Build WE]). Turn off
the last terminal and the elevator will now be able to go to the 3rd Floor.

But first return to B1 and save then go to the 1st Floor and take the South 
door for a ([Gain Hyper]) and ([Tank Energy 100]). 

Now before we go to the 3rd Floor Cinnamon should be close to Level 30 by now 
so there is no reason not to make those Gain WE +10's now. Equip them and 2
Generators each to X, Zero and Axl. Make sure Zero has the Ice Saber.

Strategy - 
Is it me or are these bosses getting easier?

This guy is a joke. Most of his attacks don't do any damage and the Q-bits can
be wiped out with Axl's Asura Fist. Hyper Mode Zero's Skull Crush will tear 
Botos to shreds. And X's shiney new Ultimate Armor will bloody murder 
everything!

For players who don't have X's Ultimate Armor, SigmaZeroX offers an alternate 
strategy:
Marino with a Hawkeye and Beam Chakram can get rid of one Q-Bit. X with Ice 
Buster MKII or Axl with Noise Cancellor, both should have Power Charge with 
Generators and Gain WE +10s, can get rid of the second Q-Bit. Zero should 
equip a Generator and Heat Haze, and attack Botos with his Ice Saber. Using 
Boost Speeds and/or Boost Powers on unarmored X, Axl, and/or Marino helps. 
With this strategy, Botos will do nothing but Botos Trio and the Hunters will 
win this one easily.

Once we're back at HQ deploy mechs to Vanallia Desert until they come back
with the ([Block All]) Force Metal. This Force Metal guarantees resistance
against all status effects, including DOA. If you're a fan of Final Fantasy,
this is the "Ribbon" of the game. Saddly it's the only one IN THE GAME.

Now lets check and see whats new in town.

Pick up the Beam Chakram S, its arguably Marino's best weapon. Everyone else 
should already have their ultimate weapon or second best weapon by now.

If you wish you can pick up a Thunder Buster MKII from the General Merchant.
It can be handy in the next level.

After you're done browsing take the Teleport Center back to Ulfat Factory. 


Smelting Furnace 2 +revisited+ - 
With the Ball & Chain Hammer you're now free to pick up the Deactivated 
Mechaniloid ([Einhammer]).


There is not much else to do before the next chapter. There are a couple 
interesting new Force Metals we can have Cinnamon make.

The first I'd like to point out is "FS Canceller". Anyone who equips it is 
prevented from using a Final Strike. Why would you want this? Because it is a
stepping stone to an even better Force Metal, the "End to All". End to All 
guarantees anyone who equips it a Final Strike. An entire party equipped with 
them will maximize their FME gain from each battle.

To make an FS Canceller requires a Justice Missile and Eagle Eye. The Missiles
can be bought in town and the Eagle Eyes from the Lagrano Shop.

End to All needs another Justice Missile and a Hawkeye. You can farm more 
Hawkeyes from Triclaw Killers in the Desert Base.

The next Force Metal is Learning Aid. This baby increase EXP by 5% for each
point earned. To make them you'll need a Get EXP+ and an Item Capture. 
Get EXP+s can be bought in Lagrano and Item Captures can be farmed from Gold 
Bladers back in the Desert Base.

The next Force Metal is Caution, if a front row unit equips this it will lower
the enemy encounter rate by half. They're quite easy to make, just go to the
Lagrano Shop and buy 9 Boost Speeds. These will refine into an Exodus. Two
Exodus refines into an Attractor, which doubles the encounter rate. Combine
the Attractor with a Neutralizer -10, also bought in Lagrano, to make your new
Caution Force Metal.

Next we have one of the most useful Force Metals in the game, Cutting Edge. 
The one who equips this always goes first in battle. So equipping a Cutting
Edge, an Exodus, and Caution greatly decreases the annoyance of enemy 
encounters as you can instantly run away from any of them. These require a 
Caution and the sacrifice of a Good Luck Metal. You can always farm more from 
Gold Bladers.

The next Force Metal you probably can't make yet. But if Cinnamon is Level 35 
she can combine a Cutting Edge, Learning Aid, and a Get EXP+ into the Monopoly 
Force Metal. Any who equips this claims all EXP earned in battle. It's good 
for getting Cinnamon's level up fast so she can make even more powerful Force 
Metal.

The last Force Metal I wish to talk about is Lucky Girl. Cinnamon can't make 
this until she's Level 35 and you have made at least 30 kinds of Force Metal.
It requires the sacrifice of another Good Luck and a Get FME+, but it 
increases the FME earned in battle by 10%! Make three when you can.

When you're done making Force Metal return to Nana and start the next mission.

New Enemies:

BLADEYS usually travel in groups. They attack with "Air Slicer", and S-type 
attack that hits the whole party. And use "Shield Peeler", "Death Gravity",
or call for backup with "SOS".

DEGRAVERS start out the battle completely frozen. If you use a Warm-up, Cure
One, or Cure All to defrost them they will be ever so grateful, and provided 
you let them live, will say "Thanks" and flee on their next turn. This act of
kindness does not go unrewarded as they will drop a Tank Energy 100 guaranteed
and will also drop a Beam Wonder S weapon for Marino 50% of them time. If 
attacked they'll become enraged and attack with "Act of Justice" a C-type 
attack or "Ultra Fire". They have a Vengeful Counter Sub Weapon for steal. 

GUNBITS are white Rabbits and use the same basic attacks as their orange
counterparts, but also mixes things up with "Giga Blizzard" and "Cryogenic".

PREON DOC is an upgrade to the Nurse, and is not as nice. It will support it's
friends with "All L Gain 25", all four "Boost All (stat)" skills, and cure
status ailments with "Refresh". For offense it'll use a normal S-type attack,
"Smash!", "Codebreaker", "Armor Peeler", "Shield Peeler", "Power Leak", and
a new attack called "Hold Gum" which lowers Speed by 25%. They drop a new
weapon for Cinnamon called 0 Effecter.

PREON GUNNER MKII is a stronger version of the Preon Gunner and uses many
of the same attacks, but also uses "Riot" and "Electromagnetic Field".
There is nothing special about them.

PREON PREASSURE is a stronger Preon Pod. On it's first turn it'll start 
charging just like Pod. On it's following turn it'll use "Hell Gravity"
which reduces one party member's LE by 50%. You can stop it with a strong 
attack, just like Pod. Other than that it's got a nameless Water Element
S-type attack, "Ultra Blizzard", "Death Gravity", and can use "Freeze Shot"
without having to charge, unlike Pod.

WOLFLOID are a snowy version of Wild Dog. Their C-type bite is Water Element.
And they use "Smash", "Coercion", and "Staredown" an S-type attack that 
inflicts Bind. They drop Bait Sub Weapons, which Axl can use to draw enemy 
fire. Coupled with his Stealth Mode you can negate most any single target 
attack.

ZWEI HAMMERS are bigger, buffer Einhammers. They use "Power Charge" to 
increase the Power of their next attack by x1.5 and follows up with "Deep 
Impact", a C-type attack that ignores Armor. They'll also panic if their ally
is destroyed and use "Break Shield" just like Einhammer. Then they'll start 
using "Double Iron" or "Wild Attack", a C-type attack with a high critical hit
rate. They drop Power Charge Sub Weapons and a Full Metal Boxer weapon for 
Cinnamon.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ore Plant External Tank -
From burning sands to freezing snow. Before you rush through the front door
to get out from the cold take a moment to search around the huge tanks for 
a ([Heavy Motor]) and ([Tank Parts]). There is a Deactivated Mechaniloid
([Rabbid]) laying in the snow to the southwest. And two ([Figure Tokens]) by
the door.

Also out here in the snow is the only place in the game you'll encounter
Degravers.


B1 Enterance Hall -
After the cutscene pick up the ([Ultra Thunder]) in the middle of the room and
take note of the locked door before heading down the elevator.


Area E-B02 -
Walk forward into another cutscene. After examining the strange object through
the peephole head south, picking up a ([Build WE]) in the next room, to find
another peephole and a ([Figure Token]). Turn around and head back north for a
([Build LE]). There is another peephole next to the elevator down.


Area E-B03 -
There is another peephole to your right. Pick up a ([Mini Battery]) in the 
next room and the room after that has another peephole. Saddly none of these
peepholes let you peep on Ferham in the shower. The path to the east leads to
a ([Build Shield]). South leads to another peephole and an elevator.


Area E-B04 -
Another peephole is on your left. Further north holds a ([Tank Energy 50]) 
and next to it another peephole. Just what is this thing anyway? Ignore the 
east door it's locked, and continue north, a Deactivated Mechaniloid 
([Wolfloid]) is in the next room. Finally the last peephole and a dramatic 
reveal. Pick up the ([Figure Token]) after the cutscene and activate the 
terminal to unlock the east door.


B5 East-West Block Access Tunnel -
There's a Save Point in the corner. Head forward to encounter an old friend,
Botos. He'll let it slip that the warhead needs two keys to open and that he 
holds one of the keys. You'll enter into a fight with him, and even if you 
equip the Cutting Edge he'll still go first. Inflicting any damage at all
will end the fight and Botos will turn tail and flee, so chase after him.


Missile Silo Base Lower Section -
Now you're standing right at the base of the missile itself. Pick up the
([Gain Hyper]), ([1000 FME]), ([Figure Token]) and ([3000z]) before leaving
through the west door.


B5 East-West Block Access Tunnel -
Pick up the ([Build Speed]) as you make your way toward the elevator.


Area W-B04 -
Another Save Point is in the corner. Continue west and you'll run into Botos
again. This time he'll summon a Q-Bit and disguise it as himself. They'll do 
a little dance to screw up your memory of which one is which and then split 
through two different doors. So that's his game is it, well screw that! The
real Botos went through the right door. Fight him once again and he'll flee
like before.

Pick up the ([Tank Energy 50]) and ([Build Power]) nearby, then double back
and take the door the Q-Bit took for a ([Figure Token]).


Area W-B03 -
Head forward to encounter Botos again, he'll do the same trick as last time.
The Real Botos went north so chase after him and once again he'll flee and 
leave you to fight his two Q-bits. I equipped Cutting Edge onto X this time 
and got to attack him before he could flee. The results were curious, it 
seems it is impossible to kill Botos as I tried using Charge Collider on 
him and he stopped taking damage just short of entering Final Strike range.
I just felt like pointing that out in case you wanted to try.

After the fight pick up ([2000z]) and a ([Cryogenic]) then head back and check 
the path the Fake Botos took for a ([Build Armor]).

Theres a Save Point by the elevator.


Area W-B02 -
Botos will flee through the west door an lock it behind him. The south door is 
also locked so that just leaves the east door. Before we go through it there
is a ([Gain Hyper]) and ([Tank Energy 100]) on the ground. An obvious sign a
boss fight is around the corner.

So let's check equipment. Give Zero the Thunder Saber and a Hawkeye. Give
Marino a Hawkeye as well. Give everyone Water Guards and Water Resists. 
Maybe give Cinnamon Learning Aids to capitalize on the huge EXP you'll get.

Put X, Zero and Marino up front.

Make sure everyone LE is topped off.

Stratgey -
Your first priority is to steal her ([Build Hyper]).

After you've stolen it switch Marino out for Axl and pound her with Zero's
Skull Crush and Axl's Rolling Thunder, use Hawkeye to ensure they hit her.
X's Nova Strike will naturally do massive damage.

If you do not have X's Ultimate Armor or do not wish to use Hyper Modes
SigmaZeroX once again has an alternative:
Equip X with the Thunder Buster MKII and a Power Charge. The Thunder Element
attack will always hit Ferham and cancel her Crimson Shade ability. Marino 
with a Hawkeye, Twin Thunder or Power Charge, will also help cancel Ferham's 
Crimson Shade.


Seriosuly these Cadres are push overs.

...the hell is a Cadre anyway?
==============================================================================
WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING BOSS FIGHT WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING

After the fight you'll win an ([Ice Stella]) and another ([Heat Haze]). I
think it's weird how you get four of these in the game, but Zero can only 
equip two. Now if Marino could equip the other two that would be awesome!

Ferham takes a dive down the missile silo taking her warhead key with her.
So backtrack all the way down back to the missile silo base.


Missile Silo Base Lower Section +revisited+-
Well that was a wasted trip, Botos took the key so back up the way you came.
An interesting cutscene will play when you reach the elevetor, but I won't 
spoil it.


Area W-B02 +revisited+ -
The two doors are unlocked now. Take the south door for a ([Figure Token]).
Take the east door to find the elevetor going up.


Area W-B01 -
At the top of the Silo you'll find Botos dead and the warhead missing.

Chapters over, save your game and we'll arrive back at HQ.

New Enemies:
GIFY BOX are like Zennydroppers, they dangle a prize in front of your face,
are hard to hit, and love to flee! They drop an item with a 100% rate, what
that item is changes every turn. 1st Turn: Decoy, 2nd: Exodus, 3rd: Turbo 
Clock, 4th: Item Capture, 5th: Beam Miracle S, and the 6th turn: Kitty Gloves.
All the items are easily gotten elsewhere.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
After debrifing Col. Redips on the situation with the Supra-Force Metal 
Warhead the alarms start to go off. The Rebellion Army is ATTACKING!!!

Rest in the Maintenance Bed if you need to. And lets check our equipment.

If you really want to breeze the next boss equip the Reverse Thunder Force 
Metal, you did get it didn't you? With this you pretty much can't lose as the 
next boss uses lots of Thunder Element attacks, which the character you equip 
it on will absorb. Ha-Ha!

Give it to Zero, or perhaps Cinnamon so she can absorb the attacks and keep
everyone else healed.

Equip Zero with the Flame Saber and give everyone else Thunder Guards and 
Thunder Resists. I shouldn't have to say equip Generators and Gain WE +10s,
they should practically be stapled to your party.

Take the Air Bus down to face Scarface (pun intended!)

Strategy -
Thunder Reverse Force Metal makes this fight a breeze.

Scarface does have an interesting gimmick to his fight. He has a barrier that
blocks consecutive C/S-type attacks. What that means is if you hit him twice
in a row with the same type of attack he'll block it and counter attack.

So just keep bouncing back and forth between C and S-type attacks, never using
the same type twice and you'll be fine.

After the fight you'll win a ([Tank Energy Infinity]), wow haven't seen one of
those in a while. And a ([Shock Lance Beta]) weapon for Massimo.


Now that that's over return to HQ, rest then talk to Nana and deploy mechs to
the Melda Ore Plant until they come back with the ([Melda Ore Key]) and
([Reverse Water]) Force Metal.

While we wait lets go check on the town.

Well we can finally buy Gain WE +10s if you don't have enough. Get some Minus

You might want the Preon Killer since the next level is full of nothing but
Preons.

And although Head Hammer is Cinnamon's strongest weapon in base Power, Kitty
Gloves is still superior.

Everything else is pretty much crap compared to what you already have. Your 
mechs probably aren't back yet so let's use the Teleport Center to do some
backtracking.

Gimialla Mines:
L3 Southwest Division +revisited+ -
With the Heavy Motor you got in Melda Ore you can finally move the Deactivated
Mechaniloid ([Gold Blader]) out of the way and reach the room behind it, 
inside is a ([Tank Part]).


Tianna Camp:
Aqua Coliseum -
You should have a Mini Battery still in your Key Item inventory. You can take 
it and head all the way down to where you fought Silver Horn to find the 
Deactivated Mechaniloid it belongs to, a ([Blowfish]).


Once you have the Melda Key in your possession it's time to face then next 
Super Boss "Duckbill Mole"...yes that's his name. Give everyone Fire Resist
and perhaps put Reverse Fire on Zero or Cinnamon. And give Zero the Ice Saber.
Return to the Melda Ore Plant.


B1 Enterance Hall +revisited+ -
Use the Key to open the locked door, behind it are three ([Figure Tokens])
and an elevator going up.


Missile Maintenance Room -
There's a Deactivated Mechaniloid ([Meltdown]) infront of the door. Continue
forward to face Duckbill Mole.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Strategy -
What you have to fight TWO OF THESE GUYS!?! They're pushovers anyway.

They'll start off using Ultra Fire on themselves, this heals them and adds
Quake Hammer and Mantle Assault to their list of tricks. You can prevent this
by hitting them with Water Element attacks.

Have Axl go into Hyper Mode and use Bait to neutralize most of their attacks,
while also using Tidal Wave every turn.

Zero's Ice Saber empowered Skull Crush will do major damage and X's Nova 
Strike will end things quickly.

When one of the Duckbills is destroyed the other will use Break Shield, but
it should't make a difference.


SigmaZeroX once again offers his much appreciated two cents:
Axl's Stealth Mode isn't really needed for this fight. You should already
have the Reverse Fire and Infinite Resist Force Metals. Equip them onto
either X, Massimo, or Marino as their Erosion should be high enough. And give 
them the Bait Sub Weapon and Combat Absorber. Also stockup on Boost Armors
from the Lagrano Shop. Finally give everyone else Fire Resist and Fire Guards.

When the fight starts use two Boost Armors on the character who equipped 
Reverse Fire. Then have your Fire absorbing character use Bait and Combat
Asorber EVERY turn! As a result Duck Bill Mole's Quake Hammer will heal the
Reverse Fire user. Mantle Assault will do very little damage due to Fire 
Resist and also heal the Reverse Fire user.

And Kamikaze Drill being C-type, Combat Absorber will reduce it's damage, and
Infinite Resist will block it's stat reduction properties.

With most of Duckbill Mole's attacks minimized players can attack him as they 
like.

==============================================================================
WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING BOSS FIGHT WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING
==============================================================================
After the fight you'll get two ([Power Charges]) and two ([Figure Tokens]).
As well as Zero's new Hyper Mode ([Absolute Zero]). Which turns Zero into a
badass demon creature with Water Elemental Claws and a new Action Trigger
Calamity Arts!

While we're back in Melda, check the map, you should see there are still a few
items laying around. Particularly up in the Missle Warhead room. We were cut 
off by a cutscene last time and couldn't get them...damn you Capcom that's a 
dick move and you know it! You'll just have to suck it up and head all the way 
up the Silo.


Missile Warhead Adjustment Room -
Pick up the ([Gatling Buster II]) and then take the east door.


Area W-B01 -
In the center of this tiny room is a lone ([Generator])...damn we came all
this way for this?!? I mean sure it's a great item and all but we probably 
already have 9.

Also Area W-B01, Missile Warhead Adjustment Room, and the place you fought
Duckbill Mole are the only places you can fight Gift Boxes.

We're done here so return to HQ, it's finally time to take the fight to
Epsilon himself!

New Enemies:

PREON S FACE is the third of the Preon Special Forces. On it's first turn it
will taunt you and use "Damage Charge", just ignore it and next turn it will
use "Discharge" which inflicts damage equal to all the damage it sustained 
since it's last turn. Which, if you ignored it, would be...none. It'll then 
use a Normal Thunder Element C-type attack, "Giga Thunder", and "Ultra Giga
Thunder". Weak to Fire. They drop Tractor Net Sub Weapons and Shock Lance B
for Massimo.

PREON S EPSILON is the strongest of the Preon Special Forces and modeled after
the big guy himself. Uses a Normal C-type attack, "Giga (Element)" and "Ultra
Giga (Element)" attacks, "Codebreaker", "Leak WE" which reduces the party's 
WE by 50%, and "Overload" which drains one party member's WE to 0. Use 
strong C-type attacks to defeat it.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Grave Base Main Gate -
There's a Save Point on the left and the way forward is blocked by a force
field so the only way we can go is through the left door.

There's a strange red pillar or light in the next hallway. If you get near it
you'll set off an alarm and have to fight a battle with some Preons. The door
locks behind us so we have no choice, but trip the alarm. One thing about
these fights is you can run from them, so it helps to have Exodus equipped.
Fight or Flee, the result is the same, the beam deactivates and the doors 
unlock. But the beam is on a timer, take too long and it'll reset and the 
doors will lock again so quickly dash out of there!


Level E Security Zone -
Trip the two beams then dash for the west door before it locks. The next hall 
contains two more beams and two locked rooms. The first room has a single
([Figure Token]) and the second ([5000z]). Back to the first hall and trip
the beams again then dash through the north door.


Level D Security Zone -
One long hallway with three beams this time, trip the beams and dash for the 
southwest door for a ([Beam Miracle S])weapon. Then dash to the east door to 
find a terminal, activate it to shut off the force field in the Main gate. 
Oh and there is a Deactivated Mechaniloid ([Bladey]) on the floor.


Grave Base Main Gate +revisited+ -
Use the Save Point if you like, you can take the Teleporter back to HQ if you 
need to rest or whatever.


Level C Security Zone -
In front of you is a ([Tank Energy 100]) and a rather large area with four
rooms in each corner and 3 beams. It'll take several laps around the room to 
get everything. Clockwise from the top left are an ([Unlock Limiter]), a 
([Gain Hyper]), a ([3000 FME]), and another ([Figure Token]). Once more 
around the room and through the north door.


Level B Security Zone -
Here we have a U shaped hallway with two rooms on either side and two beams
between them. Pick up the ([Cure All]) and ([Backup]) first, then trip the
beam and dash for the center door. The rooms at both ends are mostly empty.


Level A Security Zone -
Well that's the end of the laser beams...and the start of random ecounters
again, damn. There's a Save Point in the corner.


Battle Field -
You'd think a room like this would have a Boss fight, it doesn't, but there 
are 7! items in the center of the room, a ([Build Armor]), ([Build Hyper]), 
([Build LE]),([Build Power]), ([Build Shield]), ([Build Speed]), and a 
([Build WE]) WOW!


Revolver Shaft Area -
Pick up the ([Tank Energy 25]) and ([Tank Energy 50]) then enter the door at
the end of the hall for one of the tricker puzzles in the game. You start in
room 1 and in the next room two columns will rise out of the floor. The left 
column will rotate the entire room clockwise 3 spaces. The right will move 
the room counter-clockwise 2 spaces. You need to enter the room you stop at 
to reset the pillars. And each room contains either an enemy or item.

Let's see if I can draw a map.

HOORAY for horrible ASCII skills. If you alternate left and right between the 
two columns you'll hit each room in order (1,4,2,5,3,6,4,7,5,8) and then hit 
the left column one last time to be spat out at the exit. There's another
([Tank Energy 50]) out in the hall.


Level S Top Security Zone -
There's a Save Point to the left. Head through the door to face 3 Preon S
Epsilons. After the fight the door forward is still locked so take the left 
door. Down the hall in the first room are four more ([Figure Tokens]) and at
the end a computer terminal, activate it and don't forget the ([Super
Absorber]) hidden behind it, it's easy to miss.

Back to the center room and take the right door this time. Same deal here a
room with four ([Figure Tokens]) and a computer terminal, activate this one
and now the way forward is unlocked.


Final Gate - 
Alright time for the big showdown. There's two ([Tank Energy 100]) and a 
([Gain Hyper]) on the left. Rest up and make sure everyone has their best 
weapons, Generators, Gain WE +10's, a full supply of Gain Hypers, and Axl 
has the Auto Bullets, Bait Sub Weapon and a Hawkeye.

Strategy -
He's much the same as he was before, only slightly stronger. He has the same 
C/S blocking barrier so just keep alternating between them and he'll go down 
easy.

It's probably a good idea to hold off on Hyper Modes. And try to finish the 
fight in good health.

Strategy -
He'll always open with Metacrush and then falls back to Ultra Giga attacks and
Power Virus. If you enter Hyper Mode he'll start using Metacrush, Fatal Attack
and Nova Impact instead. So if you have to use Hypers be sure to use Axl's 
Bait to draw his attacks.

He'll use Nova Impact anyway once his health falls below 50% and Omega Force
when he's LE falls to 0 and start round two.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Strategy -
When Epsilon kicks things into high gear he'll start recovering 50% LE each 
turn as well as put up a barrier that blocks all C/S attacks. It's not as bad
as it sounds, the barrier is flawed, repeated attacks will slowly weaken it.
So pummle him with Axl's Auto Bullets or Zero's Command Arts to bring it down 
quickly. And unleash hell!

Hyper Mode Axl using Bait will help cancel out his Metacrush.

OH AND BE SURE TO STEAL HIS ([BUILD HYPER])!!!

Well this is odd, what are the shops still doing open? Oh well buy whatever
you like. The upgraded Sabers are nice for Zero. Axl Bullets 3 are probably
Axl's best weapon for Final Strike purposes, I'm not sure he seems to do more
hits when he's holding two guns, and get the Manhunter for him too. it's even 
stronger than the Insect Killer. The Comet weapons for Marino are nice too.

You can take the Teleport Center anywhere you want to go now. If you take the 
time to level Cinnamon to 40 and she can make Gain WE +25's wow! These things 
take a Backup, Build WE, Gain WE +10 and a LE +1000. The latter needs a 
Backup, Build LE and Gain WE +10. Expensive but it's worth it.

Curiously if you return to the Grave Ruins Base and head all the way back to
Epsilon's throne room you'll find a tiny empty room behind his throne that 
serves no apparent purpose. There are no items or enemies inside it...just a 
small empty closet.

Once you've said goodbye to everyone it's time to go. So head up to the
helipad, you remember where you fought Wild Jango, to await Col Redip's ship
to come pick you up.

The End.

...

HA I'm kidding, in a plot twist you could see coming from Uranus, Col Redips 
doublecrosses you and kills Chief R. 

Somehow through the magic of cutscenes you manage to make it to Col Redip's 
front door.

New Enemies:

B BLADER is a big blue bumblebee. It uses a normal 6-hit S-type machine gun,
"Phalanx" an S-type attack on the whole party. "Breed Ball" summon two 
Deerballs to the fight, which it will support with "All L Gain 25". It also 
uses "Smokeout", "Cracking", "Stun Gun" and "Virus Attack" to inflict status
ailments.

DEERBALL support B Blader with a normal C-type attack and "Smash!".

CANNON DRIVER starts the battle with a barrier that blocks C/S attacks. To
bring it down just hit it with consecutive type attacks. Shoot it, it's S 
barrier goes down, shoot it again for full damage. It restores it's barrier
every turn. It attacks with a Normal S-type attack, "Hell Gravity", "Deep
Impact" and "Chaff Grenade" which is an S-type attack on the party with a
chance of inflicting Blind. They drop the X Buster MKIII! X's strongest 
weapon at the every annoying 1% drop rate, even with 9 Good Lucks this 
could take a while.

METAROID are Pararoid pallet-swaps. They ALWAYS go first and use "Parasite"
to sacrifice themselves to power up another enemy unit. If you equip the
Cutting Edge you'll be able to hit Metaroid before it can use "Parasite". 
You can steal the Brave Buster weapon for X from it.

REDIPS GUARD are the special elite guard of Col. Redips. Uses a normal C-type 
attack, "Codebreaker", "SOS" to summon backup, "Tera Thunder", "Critical 
Kick" which is a guaranteed critical hit, and "Heat Needle" a Fire Element
S-type attack to the entire party. Drops an Insect Killer which is one of 
Axl's strongest weapons.

RED HUBCAPS are floating shrimp. Uses a 3-hit S-type attack, "Mega (Element)",
"Giga (Element)", and "Tera (Element)" attacks, and "SOS" to call for back up.
Drops a Limit Buster MKII.

RED STINGER are big humanoid bees. Uses "Boost All Speed, Power and Shield",
"Penetration" an S-type attack that ignores Shield, "Window Slash" a C-type 
attack that hits the whole party. "Bull's Eye" an S-type attack that never 
misses, and "Virus Attack. They're weak to Fire and drop a Z-Rapier+, one of
Zero's best weapons, at the agonizing rate of 1%...happy farming.

Control Room Air Access Road -
In front of you is a Save Point and the General Merchant if you need supplys.


Central Aerial Entrance -
It's the 3 Reploid Chicks Jasmine, Cumin and Saffron. Saddly they don't sell
any of their Lagrano stock, just the stuff you could have gotten back in the 
Air City shopping arcade. Take the elevator up.


Tactics Simulation Center -
A boss is up ahead, yup it's time for the traditional Mega Man Boss Rematches.
It's Wild Jango again. Put X, Axl and Zero up front. Give Axl the Bait Sub 
Weapon and Zero the Flame Saber+. Generators and Gain WE +10's, or +25's, all 
around. And give Cinnamon Reverse Thunder.

Strategy -
Not much has changed, he's just a bit stronger and has a few new attacks.

Axl in Hyper Mode using Bait will negate most of them and Black Zero with a
Flame Saber+ empowered Skull Crush will do massive damage.

And you also have X's Nova Strike.

If you do wind up in a pinch bring Cinnamon in to absorb his attacks and heal 
everyone.

Teleport Terminal -
Now I like this area. The first door on your right leads to a small room with
a Save Point, a Merchant, and a Nurse Reploid who will fully heal you for free
yippie! This makes the perfect place to farm Cannon Drivers and Red Stingers
for their rare drops.

The X Buster MKIII is stronger than the Turbo Buster, but it takes a big bite
out of X's Speed. So it's use over the Turbo Buster is debatable. 30 more 
Power, or X getting a turn more often? It's your choice.

The Z-Rapier+ is the best weapon Zero can have now so be sure to get it if you
never got it from the Eternal Forest.

Back out in the hall are four teleporters with a pink holograms showing which
boss they take you to.

And at the end of the hall are two ([Figure Tokens]), a ([Build Hyper]), and a
([Tank Part]).

Now lets start picking these bosses off. Next up Silver Horn.
Same set up as Jango only with Zero using a Thunder Saber+. And give Cinnamon 
Reverse Water.

Again exactly the same as before. Defend and wait for him to open his shell.
That's why I suggested Soul Saber for Zero, since the battle is going to be
drawn out you won't need the extra Speed of the Rapier+. 

When his shell is open blast him with Nova Strike, Calamity Arts, and Berserk
Charge. The latter looks freaken sweet when all four gauges are filled.

That's all the old bosses, not counting Cadres, so now the door to the

up front and give her the Cutting Edge, we have a couple goodies to steal.


Main Control Room -
Now we have to fight another boss. Like a Giant Space Flea from Nowhere, I 
have no idea where this guy comes from, he wasn't one of Epsilon's group. 
From his dialog I'm guessing he's suppose to be one of X's co-workers who 
sided with Redips. He's probably pissed because no one would laugh at his 
jokes at the water cooler.

Strategy -
Make sure Marino steals his ([Beast Lancer]), a new weapon for Massimo.

Other than that there is nothing special about him. He's weak to Fire, but
you'll probably just be blowing him away with Nova Strike and Calamity Arts.

Black Zero with a Fire Saber+ and Skull Crush will do major damage too.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
==============================================================================
WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING BOSS FIGHT WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING
==============================================================================
And following the Build theme you get a ([Build LE]).

Equip the Beast Lancer to Massimo, it's his most powerful weapon, and it's
Fire Element. But it also inflicts small damage to Massimo when he attacks
with it. This recoil doesn't carry over to Action Triggers though so it's 110
Power is great for boosting Barserk Charge's damage output as well as making
it Fire Element too.

Now before we continue, run around the room for a bit till you encounter a
Metaroid, they use "Parasite" on their first turn and disappear. So you'll
need a Cutting Edge to keep up. They have a Brave Buster for steal and it's
one of X's best weapons, like in the top 3. You have the Turbo Buster for 
speed, X Buster MKIII for power, and the Brave Buster...well it's weaker than
the others, but it ignores the enemy's Shield stat. Saddly it's X's heaviest 
weapon so his turns won't come as often.

Metaroids also drop a nice pile of FME and are quite common making this a 
decent place to farm FME.

Head back to the Nurse Reploid if you need to and Save.


Final Gate -
There's items in them there nooks. On the left is ([10000z]) and on the right
([5000 FME]). Further up are two ([Figure Tokens]) and a Save Point. In the 
last two nooks are a ([Cure All]) and a ([Backup]). Infront of the big door
is the obvious sign of a coming boss fight, a ([Gain Hyper]) and a
([Tank Energy 100]). Before we enter the door and confront Col Redips lets
check equipment.

Give X the X Buster MKIII, two Power Charges and fill his slots with Gain WE
Force Metal.

Give Axl the Manhunter, two Power Charges and Gain WE's.

Give Zero the Z Rapier+, two Generators and Gain WE's.

Everyone else should equip their best weapons, Generators and Gain WE's.

Put X, Axl and Marino up front.

Strategy -
DO NOT USE HYPER MODES FOR THIS FIGHT!

Make sure Marino steals his ([Rei Ichimonji]). While not as good as the 
Z Rapier+ it ignores defense like the Z Ichimonji.

This fight is identical to the fight with Dr. Psyche. You remember him? All 
he would do was summon weak things every turn if you kept destroying them. 

It's the same here, every turn Redips will use Code Red to summon 2 Red 
Hubcaps. Have X take out one Hubcap with a Power Charged regular attack, if 
you're lucky you'll be able to finish it with a Final Strike and recover 25% 
WE for next turn. Axl should do the same with the other Hubcap. Use Boost 
Power and Boost Speed on them if they can't destroy both Hubcaps before 
Redips' next turn. Once Marino is done buffing and stealing swap her out for
Zero and have him focus on Redips with Skull Crush.

You get a ([Beam Sword]) and a shocking reveal you could see coming from the
Kuiper Belt, I won't spoil it...ah what the heck just look at Redips name in a
mirror.

After the fight the fink turns tail and flees. And you can't go back to the
Nurse Reploid either, damn.


Super Strato-Terminal -
There is a ([Figure Token]) on your right. Starting from here on you'll 
encounter nothing but Red Hubcaps. The nice thing about these guys is they
usually come in groups of 3-4 and drop loads of FME when KOed with a Final 
Strike, making this probably the quickest way to farm FME. Figures it's right
at the end of the game and there is no save point!


Teleport Room, Strato-Terminal -
Nothing to do but take the Teleporter...really...was this room even necessary?
Instead of having us take an Elevator not 5 seconds ago couldn't they have 
just put the Teleporter there in place of the Elevator?


Blue Earth Tunnel -
You're spat out infront of a ([Tank Energy Infinity]) and a ([Gain Hyper]).
Before we continue put Marino up front, the final boss as a couple very
awesome goodies you will want to steal. Also put Block All on Cinnamon, and
Freeze Block on everyone else, maybe Berserk Block too just to be safe. The
Final Boss likes to throw status effects at you and Freeze/Berserk make 
healing difficult because you can't move.

Put X, Marino and Cinnamon up front.

Follow the road up and confront Redips, he'll spout some megalomaniac evil 
villain philosophical dribble, like that's anything new. 

Let's shut him up!

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Strategy -
Your first priority is to steal his ([SFM Fragment A]), this super awesome
Force Metal is basically a Gain WE 50+ that also heals 10% LE each turn.

After that keep everyone's LE topped off with Cinnamon. There is no way to 
kill this boss, he just recovers a ton of LE every turn. You can shut his 
auto-recover down by killing the Supra-Force Metal R, but it'll regenerate
in a few turns. There is just not enough time to inflict 999999 LE of damage
in that amount of time. He also has a barrier that blocks all attacks, you 
can shut it off by destroying the Supra-Force Metal L, but it regenerates too.

Plus those Supra-Force Metals, even though Mega is the lowest level Elemental
Spell, their Mega attacks do well over 1,000+ damage! 

Try not to use Hyper Modes, it's futile.

After the two Supra-Force Metals regenerate once a cutscene will trigger.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Strategy -
This battle always starts with a "Blitzkrieg!", even if you have Cutting Edge 
Redips will get two consecutive turns, and the SFM L will get one too. I hope 
you kept your LE topped off cause if he hits you with Memento Mori you'll most
likely get Frozen or Berserked, unless you equipped (status) Block Force Metal
and then it will be a pain just to keep everyone healthy enough to even stand 
up.

If you manage to survive, quickly heal up and have Marino steal his shiny new 
Force Metal ([SFM Fragment B]). This thing increases Power, Armor and Shield 
by 100, and increases Speed by 20 WOO-HOO!!!

Once you have it swap Marino out for Zero and Cinnamon out for Axl.
Have Axl go Hyper and take out the Supra-Force Metal L to lower Redips' 
barrier and draw some of his single target attacks with Bait, Codebreaker can
be especially painful, but Stealth Mode completely negates it. 

Then have X and Zero use Generators to charge WE and then go Hyper. Black Zero 
might be a better choice over Absolute as you can still use Generators as 
Black Zero and get off 100% WE Command Arts faster than you can do 100% WE 
Calamity Arts.

WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING BOSS FIGHT WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING
==============================================================================
Redips spouts some more philosophical crap then finally croaks. And that's it,
enjoy the ending cutscenes. 

Notice how even if you used everyone else only X, Axl and Zero are shown. Wow 
all that talk about friendship and you don't even show your friends in the 
ending cutscene. And turn the volume up during the credits, I think the music 
is awesome, it's really...what's the word...ambient? I don't know, but I like 
to imagine I'm floating when I hear it. It's music to float to.

After the credits you recieve the ([Central Key]) and are prompted to Save.
You'll be taken back to the Title Screen and if you select your new "CLEAR"
file you'll start back right at Chapter 10, it's like you never even left
Giga City, except you get to keep all the items you found, including the
SFM A & B Fragments! There's nothing left to do except finish any Deployment
you have left. You can go back to Far East HQ, fight all the bosses again,
farm all the SFM Fragments you want. Or you can take the Central Key you got
all the way down to where you first came to Giga City and fight some of the
toughest bosses in the game. Have Fun!

The Tails Clan are a group of nine bosses that are all as hard as, if not
harder than, Great Redips. They've been locked away deep below Central Tower. 
Once you've completed the game and recieved the "Central Key" you can head 
down to where X first woke up in Giga City and unlock their prison cell. 
They will each challenge you to a fight one by one as you make your way 
further down the shaft. You are free to turn around and return to HQ to rest 
and restock at any time.

It's best to wait until your party is about Level 40+, and you have a full set 
of Generators, at least 1 Bait Sub Weapon, plenty of Gain WE +25s, a couple 
SFM Fragment As, a Cutting Edge Force Matal, a full supply of Gain Hypers, and
everyone has their best weapons.


Shaft 999F -
Here we are back where we started. The room X woke up in is blocked off with
yellow tape that says "KEEP OUT" with two reploids tanding guard. The male 
reploid mentions the super strong prisoner locked up below and the female 
reploid says she can't allow you into the taped up room, where we know there's
a perfectly good Maintenence Bed, and gives no reason why. No if we want to 
rest we have to march AAALLL the way back up the tower to the bed in HQ.


Special Sealed Area -
Notice how the lighting gets darker as you go down, spooky! And the floor 
infront of you is a Green Gem containing ([Enter the Intruder]) which unlocks 
Movie File #48 "Battle with Scarface" in the Sky Room. And standing in front 
of the door is our first opponent.

Before we confront him be sure Axl is in the frontline and has the Manhunter, 
a Bait and Power Charge Sub Weapon, and a Gain WE+10 and Cutting Edge Force 
Metal.

WOW 72500 LE and 255 Power, this guy is going to hit you hard right out of the
gate. I'd suggest having Axl equipped with a Bait and the Cutting Edge, this 
ensures he'll go first. Have him enter Stealth Mode and use Bait to draw his
attacks towards Axl. Then the only thing that can hurt you is Annihilator 
Hadoken, which hurts about as much as you'd expect something called "HADOKEN"
to hurt, which is "A LOT!!!". Axl under Stealth Mode will take 0 damage from 
it though and can use a Sub Tank to heal your other two party members.

Then it's just a matter of wearing him down with Action Triggers.

Strategy - 
This time you have to fight two enemies. They behave almost exactly like 
Incentas in that they will change their elemental property every turn, will be
weak to the opposite element, and will use the matching "Ultra Giga" spell 
accordingly.

They start as Thunder Elementals and shift to Fire on their first turn, hit 
them with X's Nova Strike and have Cinnamon heal. Axl should enter Hyper and
snipe them with Manhunter. 

On their next turn they'll shift to Water and their Ultra Giga attack will 
be absorbed X and do hardly anything to Cinnamon. Swap X out for Zero, he 
won't have much WE, but use two Generators and hit them with Zero Skull Crush 
anyway. 

They will shift to Thunder next and any Thunder attack will be absorbed by 
Zero. Swap Zero out for Massimo and blast them with a Fire Element Berserk
Charge. 

Again they'll shift to Fire and Massimo will absorb any Fire attack. Keep 
cycling your characters like this to match their weakness and absorb their 
attacks while Cinnamon keeps everyone healed from Annihilator Hadoken and Axl
keeps poping them from the shadows and they'll go down quickly.

All three of them drop Build Hypers, SO BE SURE YOU HAVE LESS THAN 7 IN YOUR

Deep Impact         |C-type |S|ignores Armor.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Strategy - 
There is only one Four Tails this time and he's the toughest of the Tails Clan
yet!

First thing you're going to want to do is steal his ([Build Hyper]). Axl's
Stealth & Bait will negate most of his attacks and Marino will absorb his
Ultra Giga Thunder. Annihilator Hadoken will be the only thing that hurts and
Cinnamon can heal from that easy.

After you're done stealing swap out Marino for Zero.

Four Tails has a barrier similar to Scarface. If hit by an S-type attack he
will block and counter all future S-type attacks. It's the same with C-type.
So to beat him you'll have to do is simply alternate between the two types.
Axl has S-type covered with his Manhunter and Zero has C-type covered with 
Command or Calamity Arts and Cinnamon should do nothing but heal every turn.

If you can't keep Cinnamon alive try dropping the SFM Fragment A in favor of
a Gain WE +25 and a LE +1000. This guy just seems to love spamming Annihilator
Hadokens! Every turn I scream "DO SOMETHING ELSE!!!"
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
==============================================================================
WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING BOSS FIGHT WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING
==============================================================================
After the fight you get the ([Red Lotus Saber]) which is arguably Zero's best
weapon! It's 3-hit like a Rapier, Fire Element, weightless and takes all of 
Zero's Armor and Shield and converts it into Power, but it also effectively 
reduces Zero's defenses to a big fat ZERO!!! An iffy trade if you ask me.
Still it loses the "Armor and Shield to 0" bit when you enter Hyper Mode, then
it just becomes an 80 Power weightless weapon which is great for Command and
Calamity Arts.

Oh and you also get another ([Figure Token])...figures.

Through the door and you'll find a lone item ([Flying Mechs]), which is Sketch
#49. And ahead you can probably guess who.

Fortunatly this guy is much much weaker than his brother Four Tails.
Unfortunatly there's three of them and they all love to blow themseleves up
and you along with them! They'll also summon more of themselves.

Thankfully Stealth Mode + Bait denys them their 72 virgins. Then it's just a
matter of hitting them with Action Triggers and using a Sub Tank when they
suddenly decide to get smart and use Annihilator Hadokens.

Self-Destruct       |S-type |S|inflicts damage equal to user's LE, KO's user.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Strategy - 
This guy kind of reminds me of Odin from Final Fantasy. Odin would typically
give you a time limit to beat him before he'd kill you. It's sort of the same
here. You have 10 turns to kill Six Tails before he uses Life Gain Max and all
of his stats go through the roof! (like they aren't already sheesh)

After that if you manage to survive another 10 turns he'll Self-Destruct. So
I suppose a cheap way to win is just have Axl hide under Stealth Mode for 20 
turns! This will take quite a few Gain Hypers so I don't suggest it as they
are a pain to farm even with 9 Good Lucks. And if you have to resort to this
cheap trick to win you most certainly won't survive the other Tails.

So just go Hyper, go crazy with Nova Strike, and I suggest Black Zero over
Absolute because it's easier to get 100% WE with Black Zero.

Regeneration        |N/A    |-|revives a fallen party member with 25% LE.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Strategy - 
Essentially his attacks are exactly the same as One Tail's, except coming from
a guy with 400 POWER!!! The only new attack is "Nine Fragments" which inflicts
exactly 8991 damage total, it will kill any character in one hit, but it is
completely useless against Axl and his Stealth Mode.

He'll also recover 25% of his LE every turn. And wouldn't you know it he's got 
a ([Build Hyper]) to steal. 

Get Axl into Stealth Mode and use Bait every turn, then the only thing he can 
do to hurt you is Annihilator Hadoken, which coming from 400 Power will...well
annihilate you. Throw Marino into Hyper and steal then let her pound away till
her Hyper burns out and swap out for Zero. Pray he doesn't use Annihilator
Hadoken too much and lay into him with everything you have!
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
==============================================================================
WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING BOSS FIGHT WARNING WARNING WARNING WARNING
==============================================================================
After the fight you get the ([Ancient Gun]) and the final ([Figure Token]) in
the game. The Ancient Gun is perhaps Axl's best weapon, it got 100 Power, low
weight, and has a high critical hit rate against Bosses! THATS GREAT except...
there are no more bosses left. I suppose you can always try it out on Great
Redips. Oh and it looks like an old pirate's flintlock pistol.

Axl also gets his final Action Trigger, copying Nine Tail's Nine Fragments.  
Why couldn't he get Annihilator Hadoken instead? That would have been awesome!

In the room Nine Tails was occupying is a treasure trove of Sky Room crap,
([Massimo's Weapons]), ([Zero's Weapons]), ([Tails Back]), ([Tails Front]),
([X's Weapons]) and ([Cinnamon's Weapons]). Which are Sketches #10, #8, #59,
#58, #7, and #9 respectfully.

Thats it there's nothing left to do except fill up the Sky Room, enjoy.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
New Enemies: 
Oh boy!

B BLADER is a big blue bumblebee. It uses a normal 6-hit S-type machine gun,
"Phalanx" an S-type attack on the whole party. "Breed Ball" summon two 
Deerballs to the fight, which it will support with "All L Gain 25". It also 
uses "Smokeout", "Cracking", "Stun Gun" and "Virus Attack" to inflict status
ailments.

DEERBALL support B Blader with a normal C-type attack and "Smash!".

BELLADONNA are tough, super tough. Normally you'd encounter them in the 
company of a special Boss. They like to bash you with their staff inflicting
normal C-type damage, "Giga Blizzard", "Energy Capture", "Ultra Giga 
Blizzard", "Electromagnetic Field", and "Fatal Attack". If hit three times 
they'll use "Bold Beam", an S-type attack that does more damage the lower 
their LE is, it really hurts! To make things worse they also recover 25% LE
each turn and their stats increase each time the are hit. Kill them as quickly
as possible in one shot if you can.

D-REX are an upgrade to the D-Shark, you remember, those big behemoths from
Tianna Camp. They use the same normal 3-hit S-type attack. "Fatal Attack",
"Ultra Giga Fire" and "Heterostorm". The latter inflicts Virus and Blind to
the entire party. And they also use "Mini Rex" which sends 3 miniature bombs 
hopping towards you, they would be cute if they didn't hurt so much. Repeated 
C-type attacks will prevent this.

MEGA TORTOISE is an upgraded Mega Mantor. It always starts off with "Jamming"
which inflicts Blind on the party. It also has a normal S-type attack, "Shell
Bullet", "Phalanx" and "Mega Blizzard". It has the same barrier as Mega Mantor 
too. Break it and you'll prevent Shell Bullet. Other than that it's pretty 
dull. It drops Blind Block Force Metal.

MELTDOWNS are big ticking time bombs. They do nothing for 3 turns then it uses 
"Atomic Fall" which does 9,999 damage! Kill them before they go off. It's
not that hard, X's Charge Collider and Zero's Skull Crusher work wonderfully.
What really makes these guys so nice is they drop 6000 EXP and FME, provided
you kill them before their first turn. A Final Strike consisting of X, Axl
and Cinnamon, with X in X Fire Mode and Axl dual-wielding pistols can easily 
make 10,000+ FME!!!

PREON DOC is an upgrade to the Nurse, and is not as nice. It will support it's
friends with "All L Gain 25", all four "Boost All (stat)" skills, and cure
status ailments with "Refresh". For offense it'll use a normal S-type attack,
"Smash!", "Codebreaker", "Armor Peeler", "Shield Peeler", "Power Leak", and
a new attack called "Hold Gum" which lowers Speed by 25%. They drop a new
weapon for Cinnamon called 0 Effecter.

PREON GUNNER MKII is a stronger version of the Preon Gunner and uses many
of the same attacks, but also uses "Riot" and "Electromagnetic Field".
There is nothing special about them.

PREON PREASSURE is a stronger Preon Pod. On it's first turn it'll start 
charging just like Pod. On it's following turn it'll use "Hell Gravity"
which reduces one party member's LE by 50%. You can stop it with a strong 
attack, just like Pod. Other than that it's got a nameless Water Element
S-type attack, "Ultra Blizzard", "Death Gravity", and can use "Freeze Shot"
without having to charge, unlike Pod.

PREON S BOTOS is the first of the Preon Special Forces, each modeled after one
of Epsilons top generals. He'll use "Mega Fire", "Bit Shift" to summon a Big
Bit, "Defend" to reduce damage till it's next turn, and "Self-Destruct" when 
it's LE falls below 1300 which does damage equal to it's remaining LE. Has a
shield like all Preon Special Forces that blocks S-type attacks so C-type is
the way to go. Weak to Water.

BIGBITs use a normal S-type attack, "Stun Gun", "Smokeout", "Virus Attack", 
"Cracking", "Cryogenics" and "Codebreaker" to inflict status effects.

PREON S FERHAM is the second of the Preon Special Forces. Uses a 3-hit C-type
sword combo. "Mega, Giga and Ultra Blizzard", "Power Leak", "Armor Peeler" and
"Energy Sword" fires an S-type bolt of energy with 50% Power. Weak to Thunder.

PREON S FACE is the third of the Preon Special Forces. On it's first turn it
will taunt you and use "Damage Charge", just ignore it and next turn it will
use "Discharge" which inflicts damage equal to all the damage it sustained 
since it's last turn. Which, if you ignored it, would be...none. It'll then 
use a nameless Thunder Element C-type attack, "Giga Thunder", and "Ultra Giga
Thunder". Weak to Fire. And drop Tractor Net Sub Weapons and Shock Lance Beta
for Massimo.

PREON S EPSILON is the strongest of the Preon Special Forces and modeled after
the big guy himself. Uses a normal C-type attack, "Giga (Element)" and "Ultra
Giga (Element)" attacks, "Codebreaker", "Leak WE" which reduces the party's WE
by 50%, and "Overload" which drains one party member's WE to 0. Use strong
C-type attacks to defeat it.

REDIPS GUARD are the special elite guard of Col. Redips. Uses a normal C-type 
attack, "Codebreaker", "SOS" to summon backup, "Tera Thunder", "Critical 
Kick" which is a guaranteed critical hit, and "Heat Needle" a Fire Element
S-type attack to the entire party. Drops an Insect Killer which is one of 
Axl's strongest weapons.

RED HUBCAPS are floating shrimp. Uses a 3-hit S-type attack, "Mega (Element)",
"Giga (Element)", and "Tera (Element)" attacks, and "SOS" to call for back up.
Drops a Limit Buster MKII.

RED STINGER are big humanoid bees. Uses "Boost All Speed, Power and Shield",
"Penetration" an S-type attack that ignores Shield, "Window Slash" a C-type 
attack that hits the whole party. "Bull's Eye" an S-type attack that never 
misses, and "Virus Attack. They're weak to Fire and drop a Z-Rapier+, one of
Zero's best weapons, at the agonizing rate of 1%...happy farming.

WILD DOGS travel in packs and have a normal C-type bite attack, "Riot", and 
use "Lunatic" an S-type attack that inflicts Berserk.

WOLFLOID are a snowy version of Wild Dog. Their C-type bite is Water Element.
And they use "Smash", "Coercion", and "Staredown" an S-type attack that 
inflicts Bind. They drop Bait Sub Weapons, which Axl can use to draw enemy 
fire. Coupled with his Stealth Mode you can negate most any single target 
attack.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Eternal Forest is located near the end of Gaudiel's Laboratory and can be 
completed anytime after you defeat Mad Nautilus, but I'd advise you wait till
you're levels are around 20-30 before you tackle some of the longer paths, 
because some of the enemies found here aren't normally encountered until the
end of the game and are quite hard on lower levels.

The path branches and forks in several places and depending on the path you 
take you'll have to fight a Gatekeeper who throws you into a fixed enemy 
encounter you can't run away from, even with the Exodus Force Metal.

The Reploid at the end of the path will give you Items, Zenny and Tank Energy
of various amounts. Also Item Gems may be waiting for you too.

NOTE: Many of the items found through Deployment have completely different
names than they do when viewed in the Sky Room. Take for example Movie #42.
Deployment will list it's name as "Botos Berserk", but in the Sky Room it is
actually called "Botos Escapes". It gave me too much of a headache trying to 
sort it all so instead I've listed every item as they are named in the Sky 
Room. Except for Sketchs, since they have no name in the Sky Room they'll keep
their Deployment names.

 10. The Sky Room [SKYR-LINK]
==============================================================================
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

You'll gain access to this after Chapter 3.

The Sky Room is a special room in Central Tower you can go by talking to Nana.
The cabinet on the left lets you view Files, Sketchs and Figurines you've 
collected.

The poster on the wall can be changed by examining it. 

There is a movie and music player. 

And the console on the right lets you view game data, like how many fights 
you've been in, how many treasures you've found, and lets you change the color
of X's scarf.

It serves no real purpose, but it's fun to fill up everything.


Now I'll list all the Sketches, Music, Videos, etc and how to unlock them.

 14. Force Metal Generator [FMGR-LINK]
==============================================================================
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Force Metal are special pieces of equipment you can equip to your party 
members to increases their stats, WE levels, defend against status effects,
reduce elemental damage and other effects.

There is a limit to the number of Force Metal you can equip. 
Also Force Metal adds to a stat called Erosion. All party members have a 
Max Erosion, how much strain they can take from Force Metal before their 
systems start to fail, this increases as they level up.

The combined total of all equipped Force Metal's Erosion must not exceed the 
Max Erosion for that party member. If it does they'll be penalized in battle.
Penaltys can range from having LE cut in half, WE drained and other bad mojo.

Don't worry too much about it, the game will tell you if you go over and there
are some Force Metal that actually lowers Erosion, these can be quite useful
for equipping strong Force Metal.

Some Force Metal can be simply bought, found in the field or found in battle,
but when you get Cinnamon in your party after Chapter 3, you'll gain access 
to the Force Metal Generator (FMG), allowing you to have Cinnamon mix together
various Items and Force Metal Energy, won from battle, to refine new Force 
Metal.

You can access the FMG from the Sub-Menu. At first though most of the Force 
Metal in the FMG will be locked out with ????????s. If thats the case you must
first complete the conditions shown to unlock that Metal.

 16. Tips & Tricks [TIPS-LINK]
==============================================================================
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


The Glob Trick -
This trick exploits a battle mechanic of Fire Glob and Plasma Glob to generate
a lot of EXP and FME in one battle. When a Fire Glob is hit by a Fire attack 
it's EXP is boosted by 1.5x. Likewise hitting a Plasma Glob with a Thunder 
attack will increase it's FME. Hitting them multiple times in the same turn 
won't make their points increase any faster though, once per turn is enough to 
trigger the boost. Also their base stats (Power, Armor, etc) will increase as 
well so don't hit them too much or they'll get too tough to beat.

In the Japense versions of the game it seems one can use this trick to rake
in millions of EXP and FME very quickly. Unfortunately for the US versions 
this has been severly neutered as Base EXP/FME seems to cap at 131070. You 
can still increase this number with a Final Strike or by fighting two Globs at 
once, but for a single enemy, 131070 is as high as it goes.

It takes 16 hits for a Glob to reach the cap, and they run away after being 
hit 7 times. If you still want to try the trick you're going to want to use 
Marino. She should at least be Level 40 before trying this. Equip her with 
either a Fire Stella or Thunder Stella, and a Hawkeye to ensure she lands her
attack.

You'll also want X up front with a Turbo Buster, two Generators, and a SFM 
Fragment Beta and End to All. 

If you're fighting a Fire Glob you'll want Zero as well. Equip him with the 
Red Lotus Saber, two Generators, and two Speed +10s. 

If you're fighting Plasma Globs replace Zero with Axl and give him the Auto 
Bullets, two Speed +10s and an End to All.

Set Massimo up in reserve with Interceptor, two Generators, and two WE +10s.
And Cinnamon should have the Kitty Gloves and 3 Lucky Girl Force Metals. Make 
sure you have a large stock of Gain Hypers too.

The best place to fight Globs is Gimialla Mines. Fire Globs can be encountered
solo or in pairs on the first floor and Plasma Globs can be found on the 3rd 
Floor. When you enter a fight with a Glob, Defend and use Boost Speeds if you 
have to, until the turn window looks something like this: M,Z,X,M,Z,X,G. 

You will probably get something different just make sure X, and Zero/Axl get 
at least two turns before any Globs get theirs.

Have Marino enter Hyper Mode and attack the Glob. When her Hyper Mode Limit
reaches 1 have her use a Gain Hyper on herself. When X and Zero get a turn 
have them enter Hyper Mode and Defend. After 16 hits you can either use 
Marino's remaining turns to use Mirage Dive and whittle away the Glob's LE or
swap Marino out for Massimo and have him enter Hyper Mode and use Berserk 
Charge. Then mop up with Nova Strike and Calamity Arts.

If you're fighting Plasma Globs swap Marino out for Cinnamon instead to 
maximize your Final Strike hits and recieve a ton of FME.
