    1. Introduction
    **********************************************************************
    I am MysticWeirdo also known by my real name Warren Grieder.
    
    Robots based on an upcoming (at the time of this writing) movie of the
    same name.  You'll take on the roll of Rodney Copperbottom, a young 
    robot with a talent for invention.  You'll be accompanied on you 
    advent by the Wonderbot a robot you'll construct in the first chapter 
    of the game.
    
    I played this game on the XBox, but this guide should be helpful
    for the Gamecube, PS2, and PC versions as well.  There are also
    version available for the DS and GBA but I imagine those with be
    significantly different.

    5.3.2 Pod Travel
    ----------------
    
    You need to get to the Midtown area in you pod.  There's a fair amount 
    of scrap laying around what appears to be a race track if you can to 
    explore it.  Traffic runs in a clockwise directions and your pod takes 
    damage if you bump into another pod.  The exit you want is actually 
    just a short distance against the traffic flow from where you start.  
    Two other exits are closed for the time being.
    
    Here's a crude map of the transport pod area.

    that the vending machines on some items:

    You'll want to get the Maxi-Scrap 1000 as soon as you can afford it as 
    there's a lot of scrap to be had here.  The bonus feature from the 
    very first vending machine is here as well if you opted for some other 
    options there.
    
    The yellow girl bot just to the east of where you dropped down from 
    the entrance want to race when you talk to her. This is a 3 lap race 
    around the city streets.  A mini map appear on the HUB that show both 
    of you positions.  (It rotated 90 degrees from mine above an not 
    misshapen.  To finish ahead of her you'll need to 
    
    Some racing tips:
    -take the corners on the inside
    -use you turbo burst judiciously (the turbo slowly recharges)
    -hit the glowing acceleration strips
    -avoid the oil patches, they'll slow you down and damage you
    -avoid running into the other pod, you suffer damage when you do.
    -grab the full heals if you've taken some damage, but not for a just a
      single point of damage
    
    Once you manage to win the race you'll be given [*Magnobeam Blueprint 
    #1*] as a reward.
    
    [*Magnobeam Blueprint #2*] sits on a table a short ways to the east of 
    the girl.
    
    Continue east down the south side of the street.  Ignore the round 
    black and silver robot for now around continue around the corner to 
    find [*Magnobeam Blueprint #3*] on another table.
    
    Go to the southeast corner of the map and jump on the elevator, at 
    the top jump onto the structure to the west to get [*Magnobeam 
    Blueprint #4*].
    
    
    Go around the building to the north of here and jump up the three 
    ledges to get [*Magnobeam Blueprint #5*].  Double jump to the large 
    ledge around the corner and continue jumping up to the roof.
    
    There's a zip line here that you can use to get [*Magnobeam Blueprint 
    #6*]. 
    
    Head back to the building you rode the zip line from and head west 
    down the north side of the street.  [*Magnobeam Blueprint #7*] is on a 
    ledge on the first building.
    
    Continue past the building and turn into the alley to the north and 
    jump on the dumpster to get [*Magnobeam Blueprint #8*].
    
    Enter the next building where you'll find [*Magnobeam Blueprint #9*].
    While in this building talk to the green bot to start a pod race to 
    retrieve his lost cargo.
    
    You be back on the racetrack.  If you look at the race track display 
    on the HUD you see 5 dot that indicate the location of the cargo.  You 
    only have a minute so get moving using strategy similar to the 
    previous race although you'll need to adjust you course to get the 
    cargo. 
    
    I recommend that you avoid the acceleration strips as they can shoot 
    you past a cargo strip.  You can be damaged by running into other pods 
    or oil on the track.  The first piece of cargo is in the middle of the 
    3rd line of scrap.  The next piece is in the middle of 5th line of 
    scrap.  The 3rd piece on the 2nd from the left in the 8th line of 
    scrap.  The 10th line of scrap has a full heal 2nd from the right.  
    The fourth cargo piece is on the right of the 15th line of scrap.  The 
    18th line of scrap at the fork has a full heal second from the left, 
    get it at backtrack to the left fork.  The final cargo piece is in the 
    middle of the 22nd line of scrap.
    
    You get [*Magnobeam Blueprint #10*] for finding all five pieces of 
    cargo.
    
    Leave the building and continue west. Ground slide under the gate to 
    the next alley to get [*Magnobeam Blueprint #11*].
    
    Use the spring pad here to get onto the building to the west.  Go to 
    the northwest corner and jump onto a nearby ledge.  Double jump to the 
    roof to the west.  Head Northwest and turn southwest to find 
    [*Wonderbot Trick Chip #5].
    
    Return to the roof previously reached via the spring pad and go to 
    the southwest corner of the roof.  Use the zip line her to get 
    [*Magnobeam Blueprint #12*].
    
    Head to the alley to the north of Jack's and jump on the barrel and 
    then to the ledge to get [*Magnobeam Blueprint #13*].
    
    Go to the front of the building to the east of Jack's and jump on the 
    ledge to the three awnings and another ledge to get [*Magnobeam 
    Blueprint #14*].
    
    Talk to the Mailbot at the east end of the street.  You have 2 minutes 
    to find the 5 parcels he's lost at this end of the street:
    1. Large ledge on the building beside him, that you jump to after

    5.4.1 Collect Tim's Toolkit
    ---------------------------
    You'll be given the assignment of locating the 16 pieces of Tim's 
    Toolkit at the beginning of this chapter.
    
    There are entrances to the east and west side of the courtyard first 
    has a spiked bumper car and a mobile missile launcher.  Use the 
    Magnobeam on the bumper car and close with the launcher after it fires 
    to eliminate in with melee attacks.
    
    [*Tim's Toolkit #1*] is in the southeast corner of this area.
    
    Flip the switch to turn off the lower fans to the north (and turn 
    on the upper fan).  Go up to the fans, getting the full heal if your 
    really hurt (ideally save it until after the next room.)  
    
    Continue east, there's a large security bot, and a mobile missile 
    launches, and a large homing missile launcher to the south as you go 
    by the wall.  All of these can be dealt with using the wrench. [*Tim's 
    Toolkit #2*] is behind the homing missile launcher.
    
    Use the touch pad on the west wall go into the previous room.  Flip 
    the switch to toggle to the fans.  Go back to the each and jump on the 
    block at the northern end by the fans.  From there jump to the 
    platform by the upper fan to get [*Tim's Toolkit #3*].
    
    Enter the small round room to the north and exit to the east.  There 
    are two security bots just outside that can be dealt with using the 
    wrench.  
    
    Across the trench to the east is a bazooka bot on the landing.  Move 
    to the end of the landing your on and take it out with either the 
    scrap launcher or the Magnobeam.  
    
    In the trench there are to spiked bumper cars.  Snipe them from above 
    with the scrap launcher or the Magnobeam.
    
    If you jump to the ledge to the north and again to the northern 
    landing you can deal with the mobile missile launcher,  the area is 
    now secure.  
    
    If you talk to the blue-green robot here, he'll tell you he can help 
    you after Tim's occupied.  
    
    Drop down into the trench and retrieve [*Tim's Toolkit #4*] from the 
    center.  There's also a full heal here if you need it. 
    
    Get back to the entrance platform by jumping up the ledges to the 
    southwest. Use the remote control pad and fly the Wonderbot through 
    the switch in the north east corner to move a platform into place 
    under the lower end of a zip line.
    
    Go back to the blue green robot and use the spring pad to get to the 
    southern platform above where you'll find [*Tim's Toolkit #5*].
    
    South the target to the south to turn off the fan over the other 
    platform to the north.  Jump to the northern platform, and double jump 
    and ledge grab to the ledge above. (It possible to make it with just a 
    double jump if your in the right place).  Get [*Tim's Toolkit #6*] 
    here.
    
    Ride the zip line down the platform that the Wonderbot switch moved 
    into place.  Shoot the target to the south and jump onto the platform 
    that moves into range.  Shoot the target again and you'll move into 
    jumping ranges of the southeast landing.
    
    There a Magnobeam recharge pad here.  Fill up if you've used you're 
    Magnobeam.  There's also a vending machine here with this selection:

    Buy the trick chip and save the game.
    
    Use the Magnobeam to move the crate to the south.  Move it by the 
    elevated platform in the northeast corner of its track.  Jump on the 
    crate and then to the platform to get [*Tim's Toolkit #7*].
    
    Drop down and move the crate again, this time under the zip line in 
    the 
    southwest corner of the track.  Recharge your Magnobeam while your 
    here and jump on the crate and use the zip line to get [*Tim's Toolkit 
    #8*].  You be back at the entrance to this area.  Make your way back 
    to the entrance courtyard.
    
    There will be either be two security bots, two large security bots, or 
    one of each here.  These will be constantly replaced with one of the 
    two types as you defeat them so just avoid them and head out the 
    western exit.
    
    The first room to the west has a security bot, a mobile missile 
    launcher and a homing missile launcher.  After dealing with them jump 
    up the 4 platforms her to get [*Tim's Toolkit #9*].
    
    Look through the opening at the north end.  Snipe the 2 Top Bots and 
    charge the homing missile launcher avoiding its missile.
    
    Jump on the lower moving platform here to get [*Tim's Toolkit #10*]. 
    From this platform jump to the higher moving platform to get [*Tim's 
    Toolkit #11*].
    
    Enter the small round room to the north and exit it to the west.
    
    Use the wrench on the security bot and the mobile missile launcher 
    that are through the door.  Looking across the trench to the west you 
    see a mobile missile launcher in the southern sides that can be sniped 
    off as can the bazooka bot in the middle section.  The mobile missile 
    launcher in the middle section won't come into ranges so worry about 
    it later.  Use the full heal here if you need it.
    
    Use the zip line at the southern end of this section to cross the 
    trench and get [*Tim's Toolkit #12*].
    
    Pick up [*Tim's Toolkit #13*] beside the remote control pad.
    
    Use the remote control pad and fly the Wonderbot through the switch by 
    the area entrance.  This moves a platform south in the trench.
    
    Drop down into the trench at pick up [*Tim's Toolkit #14*] a bit to 
    the north before jumping on the crates to get back to the entrance 
    section.
    
    Jump on the small platform you just moved and jump across to the 
    middle western section and deal with the mobile missile launcher.
    
    Snipe the homing missile launcher in the northern section of the 
    eastern side.  The bazooka bot won't coming into range so leave it for 
    later.
    
    Use the remote control pad and fly the Wonderbot over the wall to the 
    north and through the switch on the other side to lower the wall.  Use 
    the pad again and fly the Wonderbot through the switch by the entrance 
    again to move the trench platform back to its original position.
    
    Snipe the Mobile Missile Launcher to the north as it is unable to fire 
    over the barricade.  Jump over the barricade and deal with the 
    security bot.  At the northern end of this section, past a vending 
    machine is [*Tim's Toolkit #15*].  The bazooka bot or the other side 
    can be sniped from here when its at the northern end of its patrol 
    route.

    up the crates.  Make you way back to the main courtyard and talk to 
    Tim. (The security bots still respawn here.)
    
    ------------------------------
    5.4.2 Construct the Robo-Glide
    ------------------------------
    It seems Tim is still not going to help you after all of that work 
    head to the easternmost area.  Recharge the Magnobeam if necessary and 
    then talk to the Blue Green robot.  He'll task you with acquired the 
    pieces of the Robo-Glide blueprint.
    
    Get in the elevator behind him and ride it to the next area.
    
    [*Robo Glider Blueprint #1*] is by the vending machine at the start.  
    This vending machine offers the same selection as the eastern vending 
    machine on the previous map.
    
    There's a large Spiked bottom bot just to the south, shoot it.  Go 
    clockwise on the catwalk.  You'll find a full heal just before a gap.
    
    Shoot the drill bot across the gap and jump the gap to get [*Robo 
    Glider Blueprint #2*].  A bazooka bot will be firing at you but its 
    shots are blocked by a platform.  Your shots are not so shoot him.
    
    Jump to the platform and then to the catwalk.  Quick jump over the 
    next gap so you can deal with the gun and shield robot and get [*Robo 
    Glider Blueprint #3*].
    
    Ground slide under the barrier and destroy the drill bot.  Get [*Robo 
    Glider Blueprint #4*] and step onto the moving portion of the catwalk 
    when it reaches your end.
    
    Get off at the other end and shoot the drill bot on the other side of 
    a spring pad.  Jump over the spring pad and shoot the bazooka bot on 
    the other side of a platform.
    
    Use the spring pad to get up the next level of catwalk. Land on the 
    counterclockwise portion so you can safely shoot the drill bot on the 
    other side.
    
    Jump to the catwalk where it was to get [*Robo Glider Blueprint #5*].
    From there jump to a platform and then another walkway and stomp the 
    floor switch to activate a lift.
    
    Drop back to the previous level through the gap over the spring board.
    Jump to the platform to get [*Robo Glider Blueprint #6*]. Jump to the 
    catwalk to get [*Robo Glider Blueprint #7*]
    
    Wait for the lift to arrive at jump on it.  As it rises shoot the 
    drill bots on the two catwalks it passed.  Jump off on the middle 
    catwalk to get [*Robo Glider Blueprint #8*].
    
    Jump back on the lift at jump off at the top to get [*Robo Glider 
    Blueprint #9*].  Shoot the target here to move a section of catwalk to 
    you're end.  
    
    Step on this catwalk section and shoot the Bazooka Bot on the other 
    side, be careful as there's no cover this time to protect you from 
    return fire.
    
    Shoot the target again.  You'll get [*Robo Glider Blueprint #10*] as 
    you get off at the end.
    
    Snipe the drill bot below before dropping down.  There's a Magnobeam 
    recharge pad here if you need it and [*Robo Glider Blueprint #11*] 
    just past it.  Jump over the three round currently stationary 
    platforms.  Snipe the Spiked Bottom Bot on the upper catwalk from the 
    second platform and the Spiked Bottom Bot on the lower catwalk from 
    the third.
    
    Shoot the bazooka bot in the distance when you get to the switch.  Use 
    the switch to make a platform to rise up.  Jump to the platform and 
    then to the walkway past it.  Get [*Robo Glider Blueprint #12*] and go 
    to the end of the walkway. 
    
    Use the tinkerswitch here to start the three elevator platforms 
    moving.
    
    Go back to the platforms and jump on the nearest one when its in 
    range.  Wait for it to reach its apex and jump to the second one to 
    get [*Robo Glider Blueprint #13*].  Stay on the second platform to get 
    [*Robo Glider Blueprint #14*]
    
    Jump to the third elevator and then to the upper catwalk to deal with 
    a Gun and Shield robot. You can get [*Robo Glider Blueprint #15*] here 
    as well as a full heal.
    
    Jump across the elevator to the other side where you can find [*Robo 
    Glider Blueprint #16*]
    
    Jump over the next gap and talk to the blue green robot to get the 
    Robo Glide, he'll also explain how to use it.  Go the end of the 
    catwalk and shoot the drill bot on the ledge across the gap.
    
    Roboglide across the gap.  The vending machine here has the same 
    selection as the western vending machine on the previous map.
    
    Step on the round lift here to go to the next map.
    
    -----------------
    5.4.3 Whack a Bot
    -----------------
    
    You'll find yourself in a room with 8 irises on the floor.  When these 
    open a Guard Dogbot or a security bot may be released, a bomb may 
    appear,  a full heal may temporarily appear, or a round robot may 
    emerge at toss a bomb if giving the chance.
    
    What you need to do here is jump oven the round robots when they 
    appear and stomp them.  Avoid the other enemies and grab the full 
    heals when they appear.
    
    The chapter ends after you stomp on eight of the round robots.

    Head.
    
    Go through the door to the west into a tube, where you'll find 3 Buzz 
    Saw bots.  Use the wrench on them.  The tube turns south to a 
    room with 2 Brute bots.
    
    Use the Tinkerswitch in the north east corner of the room to open a 
    Wonderbot sized tube above it.  Use the Remote Control pad here and 
    fly the Wonderbot into the tube and through the switch where it 
    emerges, starting a steam engine.

    room have turned on allowing access to the southern exit.
    
    Two Brute bots and [*Electro Shot Blueprint #1*] are in this tunnel.
    The tunnel curves east into the steam engine room.  Drop into the room 
    and deal with the 2 dogbots and the brute bot.
    
    I believe you're intended to jump back up the barrel below where you 
    entered the room and roboglide to the nearest piston, and again to the 
    other two in turn. However, you can bypass this it you double jump up 
    beside the gear near the final piston and jump onto the piston from 
    there.
    
    From the final piston, roboglide to the ledge to get [*Electro Shot 
    Blueprint #2*].  There are 3 Buzz Saw bots in the tunnel here.  
    Deal with them and go down the tunnel to the north.

    east before going into the hall to the north where there are two more 
    frogbots to deal with.
    
    Use the remote control pad at the end of the hall and fly the wonder 
    bot through the switch by the door to the east.  This turns on a fan 
    to the south of the door.

    yet so drop down to the floor.  Deal with the dogbot and the two brute 
    bots there.  There's a full heal here if you need it.  The vending 
    machine in this room has the same selection as the second machine on 
    this map.
    
    You probably have enough scrap to buy the bonus feature now.
    
    (If you need to get back up jump on the dumpster under the entrance 
    and then to the barrel.  Double jump and ledge grab and your back up.)
    
    Go into the hall to the south.  Rise up on the updraft from the fan.

    security bots and take the western exit.  A Buzz Saw Bot guard the 
    short hall and 3 claw and shield bots are inside the room.  
    
    [*Electro Shot Blueprint #16*] is in the northwest corner and a full 
    heal is in the northeast corner.
    
    A cannon guards the vending machine to the south.  This machine has

    He'll give you the electro shot and tell you the use it to charge up 
    the electrode in this room.
    
    First recharge on the recharge pad.  Shoot the big light bulb with the 
    electro shot to cause more gear to appear. 
    
    Take out the cannon of the left (if you want to deal with the second 
    cannon on the left you'll need to make you way across the lower gears 
    to it.) and jump or roboglide across the upper gears dealing with the 
    cannon on the right.  Finish crossing the gear and deal with the claw 
    and shield bot to the south.  Get the full heal here if needed.
    
    Go through the door to the south and deal with the frogbot.  Jump up 
    the 4 ledges and roboglide to the top into a tunnel to the south.  
    Deal with the Buzz Saw Bots and follow the tunnel east to a room 
    with a brute bot and a dogbot. [*Fender's Head*] and a full heal are 
    in the south east. 
    
    While you can use to the tinkerswitch to create an opening you can 
    ground slide back to the starting point there's an alternate route you 
    should take.  Use the spring pad to get up to a platform with a spiked 
    top bot.  From there jump to a moving platform and jump into a tunnel 
    with 2 Buzz Saw Bots and [*Wonderbot Trick Chip #8*].  Continue 
    down the tunnel and drop into the starting room at the end.

    5.6.1 Rematch
    -------------
    The first thing you should to is talk to the yellow girls bought who 
    says she's been practicing and wants a rematch.
    
    This race is virtually identical to the first on against her.  Its a 
    three lap race on the same track. The only this that makes it more 
    difficult is that there is only a single full heal available so you'll 
    need to be more careful in avoiding the other pod and oil patches that 
    can damage you.
    
    Otherwise use the same tips as before:
    -take the corners on the inside
    -use you turbo burst judiciously (the turbo slowly recharges)
    -hit the glowing acceleration strips
    -avoid the oil patches, they'll slow you down and damage you
    -avoid running into the other pod, you suffer damage when you do.
    -grab the full heal if you've taken a lot of damage, i.e. down to 1 or   
      2 hit points.  Try to save it for lap 2 or 3.
    
    You'll get [*Wonderbot Trick Chip #9*] as a reward of winning.

    Exit Jacks store to start the special race to gather the Magnobeam 
    blueprints.
    
    You can be damaged by running into other pods or the oil on the track.
    
    Use your turbo in the longer gaps between scrap lines or if you're 
    lined up with a blueprint piece to save some time.
    
    The are sixteen pieces to collect.  There locations are indicated by 
    the white dots on the map on the HUD.  All of the blueprints and some 
    full heals are located in the lines of scrap on the main track:
    
    [*Magnogrip Blueprint #1*] is on the left side of the 1st line.
    
    [*Magnogrip Blueprint #2*] is in the middle of the 3rd line.
    
    [*Magnogrip Blueprint #3*] is the last in the 5th line.
    
    [*Magnogrip Blueprint #4*] is in the middle of the 6th line which also 
    has a full heal on the left. Watch out for the oil path on the left 
    side of the track just past here.
    
    [*Magnogrip Blueprint #5*] is the last in the 7th line.
    
    [*Magnogrip Blueprint #6*] is on the right of the 8th line which also 
    has a full heal on the left.
    
    [*Magnogrip Blueprint #7*] is the second from the left in the 9th 
    line.
    
    [*Magnogrip Blueprint #8*] is on the left of the 10th line which also 
    has a full heal 2nd from the right.
    
    [*Magnogrip Blueprint #9*] is on the left of the 11th line.
    
    [*Magnogrip Blueprint #10*] is on the left of the 13th line.
    
    [*Magnogrip Blueprint #11*] is on the left of the 14th line.
    
    [*Magnogrip Blueprint #12*] is on the left of the 15th line at the 
    fork which also has a full heal in the middle.  Backtrack to the left 
    fork after getting these.
    
    [*Magnogrip Blueprint #13*] is in the middle of the 17th line.
    
    [*Magnogrip Blueprint #14*] is in the middle of the 18th line.
    
    [*Magnogrip Blueprint #15*] is in the middle of the 20th line.
    
    [*Magnogrip Blueprint #16*] is on the right side of the 22nd line.
    
    There's only 20 seconds on the clock but each blueprint you pick up 
    added 3 seconds so there is more than enough time to get them all.

    NOTE: Use your turbo to destroy any enemies encountered in the sewer.
    
    You encounter a brute bot just inside the tunnel.  After destroying it 
    follow the tunnel until it emerges onto a small ledge at the south end 
    of a large room.  
    
    Drop to the floor of the room and destroy the 2 brute bots and the 
    flame thrower.  [*Spare Part #6*] is in a tube on the east side and 
    [*Spare Part #7*] is under a ledge in the Northwest corner.  The 
    vending machine here has the same selection as the one in the hub.
    
    Head up the ramp to the south to get back to the room entrance. Go 
    down the path leading north from the ledge using turbo near the end 
    and jumping to the left to get to a ledge where you'll find [*Spare 
    Part #8*].
    
    Jump onto the platform in the corner for [*Spare Part #9*].
    
    Get on the track to east and turbo through the flamethrower to the 
    northeast corner for [*Spare Part #10*].
    
    Go up the track to the south to get [*Spare Part #11*].  Use turbo to 
    get over the gap further south.
    
    Turn west and follow the track as it turns north through [*Spare Part 
    #12*] and [*Spare Part #13*].
    
    The trace turns west and will drop you into the east side of a large 
    round room with an acid pool in the center.  Destroy the 3 brute bots 
    and the 3 flamethrowers around the perimeter.
    
    There are full heals here if you need them.  There's also a vending 
    machine south of where you entered:

    Use one of the ramps around the room to get on the fan blades and ride 
    them to get [*Wonderbot Trick Chip #11]. (If you miss and end up in 
    the acid try to get out quickly.)  A full heal can be obtained on the 
    fan blades as well.
    
    The are four spare parts in cages you'll need to come back for later.
    
    Take the lift at the north end.  Head counterclockwise around the 
    perimeter.  You'll run across a switch that lifts one of the cages 
    over the spare parts below.  Continue counter clockwise under the path 
    dead ends at [*Spare Part #14*].
    
    Return to the lift and go clockwise this time.  You'll roll across 
    another switch lifting a second cage.  Continue clockwise going across 
    a red crosspiece to get around some pipes that block your way.  These 
    pipe also serve as a hiding place for [*Spare Part #15*].  
    
    Continue clockwise to get to a switch tat lifts a third cage and get 
    [*Spare Part #16*] just beside it.  Continue clockwise past the 
    southern lift to [*Spare Part #17*] and hit the forth switch to lift 
    the final cage. 
    
    Head down the nearest path to the center ring and go around clockwise 
    to get [*Spare Part #18*], [*Spare Part #19*], [*Spare Part #20*], and 
    [*Spare Part #21*].
    
    Drop down to the bottom at get [*Spare Part #22*], [*Spare Part #23*], 
    [*Spare Part #24*], and [*Spare Part #25*] now that the cages over 
    them have been lifted.
    
    Go back to the northern lift and make your way back to the southern 
    lift.
    
    Take it up to a tube with [*Spare Part #26*] at the opening.  Follow 
    the tube as it snakes to the south east returning you to the sewer 
    hub through door "c".

    Follow the tat to a flame jet.  Go by it while it's off.  (If you've
    mistimed it take the left track down to a full heal.)  Take the right 
    track.
    
    At the next junction take the left track and turbo into the wall pad 
    at the end. (If the track ends at a gap instead of a wallpad you 
    missed the junction.)  This rotates a track segment at a crossroads 
    further on.  Backtrack to the previous junction and take the other 
    path.
    
    [*Spare Part #27*] is over the track segment that was just turned into 
    place.  Take the next junction on the right and go down the track to 
    the left at the following junctions.  Roll over the switch at the 
    bottom of the track to lift a barricade.
    
    Go back up the ramp and continue on going right at the next junction 
    past where the barricade was.  Jump over a gap to get [*Spare Part #
    28*] and continue avoiding the flame.  Turbo into the wallpad at the 
    end of the line which returns the track segment at the crossroads to 
    its original position.
    
    Get back to the previous junction and take the left track this time.  
    You'll get [*Spare Part #29*] as the path turns right.  
    
    Avoid the flames as the path drops.  The path turns right again and 
    you'll find [*Spare Part #30*] and [*Spare Part #31*] over dips so 
    you'll need to jump to get them.
    
    The path turns right again.  You'll find [*Spare Part #32*] over a gap 
    a short distance later, use turbo and jump to get it.  (If you don't 
    clear the gap. hit the switch below and ride the updraft of the fan it 
    starts to get the spare part and get back on the track.)
    
    Continue along as the track turns right at the crossroads.  Take the 
    left trace at the next junction to get [*Spare Part #33*] and 
    backtrack to the right branch.
    
    Take the next right to get [*Spare Part #34*] and backtrack to go 
    left.
    
    Avoid the flames at the u-turn and again as the path turns left to 
    [*Spare Part #35*].  Continue following the tracks  to [*Spare Part #
    36*] at the entrance to a large room.
    
    You'll end up in the rooms center.  Only the eastern path isn't 
    blocked.  Follow it to the wall and turn right.  [*Spare Part #37*]
    is at a junction.
    
    [*Spare Part #38*] is on the right path from the junction at a 
    dead end. After getting it retreat to the junction and take the other 
    path.
    
    Hit the switch to move party of the path closer to you.  Get on it and 
    ride it to the other side.
    
    The path north to the center is currently blocks so follow the path 
    that corkscrews downward to a switch.  Rolling over this switch lows 
    the pistons blocking the other paths from the center.  go back up the 
    path to the center.
    
    Take the western path.  Turbo across the rotating path when its in 
    the safe position.  Go to the wall for a full heal and get [*Spare 
    Part #39*] on a dead end path to the left.  
    
    Backtrack to a spur that leads north through [*Spare Part #40*] to a 
    switch that opens the area exit.
    
    Go back to the center and take the north path.  (Again you'll need to 
    turbo over a rotating path when its safe.)
    
    [*Spare Part #41*] is at the end of the path by the wall.  Don't go up 
    here yet, instead backtrack to a path going east and get [*Spare Part 
    #42*].  Now go up the corkscrew path.  Take a dead end path to the 
    right
    for [*Spare Part #43*] and another to the left to get [*Spare Part
    #44*].  The next dead end path to the right leads to a vending machine 
    with the same selection as the second one behind "Door #1".
    
    Go through the area exit and follow the tunnel back to the hub, 
    emerging through "door b".

    Follow the tube to a track in a room with a lot of flame jets.
    
    Jump over the lift gap to the east to get [*Spare Part #45*]. Go back 
    to the lift and ride in down.  Get [*Spare Part #46*]from the outer 
    end of the lower path and turbo into the wall pad at the inner end to 
    open the upper path inward.
    
    Ride the lift back up and go long the new open path.  Avoid the flames 
    after the U-turn and go by the lift to get [*Spare Part #47*].
    
    
    Ride the lift down at head in the direction of the exit (away from the 
    u-turn) to get [*Spare Part #48*].  Turbo into the wall pad to partial 
    open the path above.  
    
    Reverse directions and go past the lift and flames to [*Spare Part 
    #49*] at the U-turn.  Continue through a full heal to [*Spare Part 
    #50*] and turbo into the wall pad to finish opening the path to the 
    exit.
    
    Go back to the lift, minding the flames just before it, and ride it up 
    to the upper track.  Continue towards the exit.  Take the lift before 
    the exit down to get [*Spare Part #51*] and [*Spare Part #52*] from 
    the ends of the lower track.
    
    Go back up the lift and follow the exit tunnel back to the hub through 
    "door e".

    5.8 Sewer Showdown
    ==================
    
    You'll start the chapter in Jack's Store.  He'll ask you to get the 
    scrambler shipment back from an insane sewer maintenance bot in the 
    sewer.  Jack's inventory has changed again:

    Maxi-Scrap 500             50

    Bonus Feature             200 (Aunt Fanny)
    Charge-A-Matic            400
    
    Pick up [*Wonderbot Trick Chip #12] in Jack's back room.
    
    Leave Jack's to begin the showdown.
    
    You'll be facing off against the Maintenance bot across a river of 
    acid.  Each of you has 5 pump guns to fire at the other.  The 
    Maintenance Bots' guns will sometimes fire dogbots so be prepared to 
    beat them off with your wrench.  You also need to avoid the damaging 
    acid with it splashes.  Stepping in an acid puddle slow you down but 
    doesn't hurt.
    
    You fire your guns by hitting them with you wrench.  Pressure will 
    build up for a couple of seconds and a shot will fire.
    
    The trick to hitting the maintenance bot is anticipating where it will 
    be.  You can try to get a cheep hit it when its charging its pump.  
    Stand by the second pump from the right and hit it a half second after 
    you head the first crank of the pumps being charged.  If the bot goes 
    for the second pump from the right first it will get hit.
    
    If you don't get the cheap hit in, wait as the maintenance bot fire 
    four shots.  Avoid the acid and deal with the dog bots as its does so.  
    Hit the pump across from the remaining pump as it heads towards it.  
    It will get hit either as its firing or beating its chest afterward.
    
    Hit it 10 times to defeat it.
    
    Afterwards, back in Jack's, you'll receive a full load on 10 
    scramblers from Jack.
    
    Leave his store to end the chapter.

    5.9 Big Weld's Mansion
    ======================
    
    -------------------
    5.9.1 Entrance Room
    -------------------
    
    A female robot has supposedly come along to help you.  All she does is 
    stand there though.
    
    There's a vending west of where you start:
    
    Save                     Free

    Bonus Feature             800 (Meet Rodney)
    Maxi-Scrap 500            180
    
    There's a "chair" south of the vending machine that will take you into 
    jumping range of some scrap.  
    
    In the northern part of the room are three Guard Dogbots, one 
    patrolling each of the east, west and north sides.  There a security 
    bot by the exit to the west and a second on the center stage. Deal 
    with all the enemies.
    
    After dealing with the security bot on the center stage you can shoot 
    the large homing missile launch on a platform to the northeast from 
    the center stage.
    
    Besides the exits to the east and west, the only thing of interest is 
    the combination lock.  This consists of four touch pads which have 
    four settings each.  You can try brute forcing the combo (there's only 
    256 combinations) or your can explore the level in search of it.
    
    (If you do brute force it, wander into the western room briefly to get 
    the Wonderbot Trick.)  
    
    The most efficient way to brute force, if we label to the buttons ABCD 
    from left to right is to repeat the following sequence up to 4 times
    to hit all of the combinations in the minimal number of changes (255
    as the final D will return you to the first combination).  You'll hit
    the combination before you've tried them all.

    5.9.2 Eastern Room
    ------------------
    
    Go through the eastern door.  There's a full heal on some barrels to 
    the north.
    
    Use the spring pad southeast of the entrance to get to another spring 
    pad.  Use this pad as cover from a bazooka bot and take it out after 
    it firs.  Further along the path is another bazooka bot.  Take in out 
    and stomp the button at the end of the path to drop a can to the 
    floor.
    
    Drop to the floor and use the hand pad by the entrance to lower a 
    lift. There a recharge pad northeast of the entrance if you need it.
    Use the magnobeam to move the can onto the red portion of the lift.  
    Use the touch pad again to use the lift with the can on it.
    
    There a vending machine in the southeast if your interested:

    Scrap Launcher Homershot  250
    Wonderbot Trick           300 [*Wonderbot Trick Chip #10] (assumed)
    
    Use the two spring pads to get up to the lift.  Use the magnobeam on 
    the can to move it onto the conveyor to send it to the western room.
    
    Note the tinkerswitch in the cut scene above the ledge to the left of 
    the display and the Wonderbot trick under the stairs.
    
    Drop to the floor, recharge and leave the room.
    
    ------------------
    5.9.3 Western Room
    ------------------
    
    Go through the entrance room to he western room.  Take out the dogbot 
    and the security bot.  There's a bazooka bot on the ledge to the 
    north, and a large homing missile launcher on the machine to the 
    south. You can shoot both of there from the floor.
    
    Get [*Wonderbot Trick Chip #13*] under the stairs.  There a full heal 
    in the southwest corner if you need it.
    
    Use the magna beam on the can to move it to the southwest corner.  You 
    can double jump onto the can and double jump and ledge grab the lower 
    portion of the machine from there.  Double jump to get to the higher 
    portion of the machine.  
    
    Roboglide to the conveyor and roboglide again to the northern ledge.  
    Shoot the bazooka bot in the northwest corner from there.
    
    Use the Tinkerswitch on the ledge to start a 1 minute countdown in 
    which you must use the other 4 tinkerswitches in the room.  Run up the 
    ramp on the northwest corner and use the tinkerswitch there.  Watch 
    the steam an drop down to the can, and get back on top of the machine 
    to use the third tinker switch there.  Drop to the front of the 
    machine an use the fourth tinker switch.  Go to the southeast corner 
    and use the final tinkerswitch.
    
    This activates a display with the combination on it.
    
    heidism on the IGN boards noted an easier way to get on the conveyor:
    --
    Next to the machine there is a round platform, if you turn the 
    tinkerswitch nearest to the entrance, it makes this platform go up 
    and down. If you jump onto the can and then onto the machine, you can 
    jump onto the round platform next to the higher part of the machine. 
    This platform goes up high enough so that you can glide to the ledge 
    against the opposite wall easily.
    --
    
    With the above note from heidism in mind, instead of using the order
    of the tinkerswitches above, I'd use this order: 3rd, 4th, 5th, 1st, 
    and 2nd. Numbering is according to the ordered mentioned above, you 
    may need to make two attempts due to the bazooka bot, or just kill it, 
    wait for time to expires and then do the switches in my original
    order.
    
    (It takes less time to brute force the combination.)
    
    --------------
    5.9.4 Big Weld
    --------------
    
    Return to the main room and open the lock. (My combination was blue-
    yellow-blue-green).  This raise three platform on the northern side of 
    the room.  Jump across them, getting the full heal if necessary.
    
    Use the touch pad on the last platform to free Big Weld and end the 
    chapter.
    
    Save the Game when prompted to.

    5.10 Big Weld Chase
    ===================
    
    ----------------
    5.10.1 Obstacles
    ----------------
    
    Your riding Big Weld here, think of him as a transport pod without the 
    turbo.
    
    Pay attention to the instruction for ducking and jumping at the 
    beginning (Xbox Y=duck, A=Jump).  Watch for the arrows on the barriers 
    and duck or jump accordingly.  
    
    The sequence is Jump, Duck, Duck, Jump, Duck, Duck, Jump, Duck, Duck, 
    Jump, Duck, Jump, Jump, Duck.
    
    -----------------------
    5.10.2 Against the Flow
    -----------------------
    In the second segment you're going against the flow of traffic.  Try 
    to avoid the oncoming pods.  There are several full heals on the side 
    of the road, the first is to the right, you may want to grab that if 
    you did poorly in the first segment.
    
    The remain four heals are on the left side, the last being just past 
    the "Diversion" sign as the course transitions into a construction 
    area.
    
    -------------------------
    5.10.3 Under Construction
    -------------------------
    
    No traffic here.  Avoid the oil patches and jump over the falling 
    beams. 
    
    If you take the shorter left fork there are rows of scrap beside 
    stretches of oil in the center, there a full heal in on of these 
    lines.
    
    You'll want to take the longer right fork however,  There will be a 
    full heal to the right in the first line of scrap.  There are more 
    falling beams to jump over.  After a while a pipe will be swung into 
    place. Go through it to get [*Wonderbot Trick Chip #14*]

    Two electrocutors will have maneuvered under the ledge you were on.  
    You're in range of there attacks so quickly deal with them with 6 
    wrench hits each (and hope to hit both at the same time).

    =====================
    5.12 Ratchet Showdown
    =====================
    
    ------------------------
    5.12.1 Ratchet's Machine
    ------------------------
    
    It's time for the final showdown.  It the spirit of fair play you'll 
    be force to stand in one spot and given you scrap launcher as the only 
    weapon choice.  It does have infinite ammo though.
    
    You're facing Ratchet's machine, a large monstrosity consisting of 
    five portals that will spew out waves of enemies that you've faced 
    previously.  Shoot them as they approach.  Shoot full heals to heal 
    yourself when they appear.  Continue doing this until you hear a horn. 
    
    On hearing the horn, immediately aim to the top of the machine and 
    look for a blue light above one of the portals.  Shoot it until it 
    turns red.
    
    Repeat this until you've shot the lights above all five portals.
    
    --------------
    5.12.2 Ratchet
    --------------
    
    Now it's time to deal with Ratchet himself.  Aim for the top of the 
    machine, Ratchet will by moving between the portals.  When Ratchet 
    stops over one of the portals open fire on him to hit him.
    
    If you hear him say "Coming at you", "Fix That", or a similar taunt 
    he's going to throw a bomb at you. Shoot it down before it hit.
    
    There will still be enemies running along the floor at you, but it you 
    keep Ratchet in your sights they won't have enough time to take you 
    down before Ratchet has been finished off.
    
    Once Ratchet has been hit five time the game is complete.
    
    Save a final time when prompted and watch the credits.
    
    **********************************************************************
    6. Enemies
    **********************************************************************
    
    There's are the names I've chosen to call the enemies in the game. 
    I've including a brief strategy for them.  For the most part the 
    wrench is likely the weapon of choice since it doesn't consume you're 
    spending money.  
    
    I also highly recommend the Megashot upgrade.  It can take out the 
    brutes with a single shot. 
    
    Once you acquire the Magnobeam its capable of lifting more enemies off 
    the ground and dropping them to destroy them. 
    
    The electro shot is capable of taking out most enemies with a short 
    burst.  Quicker and more energy efficient than the magnobeam.
    
    Dogbot
    ------
    This canine robot has a nasty bite.  It falls quickly to three hits 
    from the wrench.
    
    Security Bots
    -------------
    Watch out for these bots spinning attacks.  There's a window of 
    opportunity after there spin to hit them 4 times with the wrench to 
    destroy them.
    
    Buzz Saw bots
    ------------
    This small bot can take a slice out of you which its blade if 
    it gets to close, but falls quickly to three wrench hits.
    
    Missile Launcher
    ----------------
    This stationary target launches a missile that can be easily side 
    stepped. After it fires there's sufficient time to close with it and 
    hit it three times with the wrench to take it down before it 
    recharges. 
    
    Brute Bots
    ----------
    These larger bipedal bots like to slam their fists into the ground, be 
    at distance when they do so, and the charge them for 5 wrench hits to 
    destroy them.
    
    Spiked Top Bot
    --------------
    The spikes on this bots domed head can hurt on contact.  3 wrench hits 
    at required.
    
    Shield and Gun Bots
    -------------------
    There bots fire projectiles at you.  The shield protects them from 
    frontal attacks so get behind them and hit them four time with the 
    wrench.
    
    Top Bot
    -------
    The wrench is not recommended for this bot, while it will go down with 
    three hits you'll get hurt as well.
    
    Instead try to stand somewhere safe and snipe them with the scrap 
    launcher. You'll need to lead them a bit.  Three hits from a normal 
    launcher or a single megashot with take them out.
    
    If you do find yourself in close quarters with them, rapid fire from 
    the scrap launcher (don't aim) can be effective.
    
    Fish Bot
    --------
    These bots leap in and out of acid.  Ignore them they're harmless. 
    (I tried firing megashots at them but either I was missing or they 
    can't be destroyed.)
    
    Dozer Bot
    ---------
    This small bulldozer is invulnerable to frontal attacks.  Get behind 
    them after they charge and attack them 3 times with the wrench.
    
    These bots seem to be immune to scrap launcher fire, except during 
    their appearance in Ratchet Showdown.
    
    Drill Bot
    ---------
    These drill headed bots can hurt you if you get to close but fall 
    quickly to 4 wrench hits.
    
    Spiked Bumper Car
    -----------------
    Don't get to close to this bot that's surrounded by pointed spiked.  
    Shoot it from a distance with the scrap launcher or mangobeam.
    
    Mobile Missile Launcher
    -----------------------
    Avoid this small robots missiles and close with it to take it out with 
    your wrench, three hits will be enough.  Be careful, it also has a 
    melee attack.
    
    Large Security Bot
    ------------------
    This large round robot attacks with its clawed hands.  After it 
    attacks move it with the wrench and hit it 4 times.
    
    This bot is immune to the magnobeam.
    
    Homing Missile Launcher
    -----------------------
    This bot looks like the large security bot but its fixed in place.  
    Keep moving when it fires to outrun the missiles that turn towards 
    you. Hit it 6 times with the wrench while it recharges.
    
    This bot is immune to the magnobeam and the electro shot.
    
    Bazooka Bot
    -----------
    This bot carry a big gun and will launch a missile at you if you're it 
    range.  The first ones you encounter are across trenches and will need 
    to be shot. Wait for their shot to miss before returning fire.
    
    Spiked Bottom Bot
    -----------------
    This large bot has some rather point spikes on the bottom. As these 
    land mines explode on contact it's best to shoot them from a distance.
    
    When in a transport bot try to avoid them or take your lumps.
    
    Guard Dogbot
    ------------
    A black version of the regular dogbot.  Otherwise they're the same.
    
    Round Robots
    ------------
    When with bots emerge from there iris there can be stomp on.  The long 
    necked variety may also toss bombs.
    
    Frogbots
    --------
    A bipedal bot with a frog's head.  They have a whipping attack after 
    with they're vulnerable to 4 wrench hits.
    
    Claw and Shield Bots
    --------------------
    Watch out for the serrated edge on the shield which allows it to be 
    used as a second weapon. 4 wrench hits are enough.
    
    Cannons
    -------
    Shoot these quickly with the scrap launcher when they're taking aim.  
    They're less vulnerable to projectiles in the upright position.  
    
    If you can get close to them, they'll fall to three wrench hit 
    regardless of the position they're in.
    
    This bot is immune to the magnobeam.
    
    Flamethrowers
    ------------
    These bots shoot fire out there mouth.  You'll first encounter them 
    while operating a transport pod, so try to hit them from behind.  If 
    that's not possible, hit them quickly to minimize damage.
    
    Insane Sewer Maintenance Bot
    ----------------------------
    This boss is brought down by being hit 10 times with acid.
    
    Gun and Shield Bot Mark II

    used as a weapon at close quarters.  5 hits with the wrench will bring 
    these down.

    This upgraded cannon shoot multiple projectiles at a variety of 
    angles. It's more vulnerable to return fire than the earlier model.
