    I) About The Game
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Ratchet: Deadlocked, is by far the best single-player and co-op game
    in the series (in my opinion of course), especially since you can switch
    between single and co-op for the same file. Some things are easier single
    player and some things are easier co-op too.
    
    The best part of this game is that it's a third person shooter by default
    with some of the funnest gameplay around... the weapons are probably the
    biggest attraction for this game and its series.
    
    The name of the game is to complete the challenges forced upon you by 
    Dreadzone, an illegal gameshow where players compete against each other
    in life or death matches.
    
    I shouldn't really tell too much about this game so lets get to the
    good stuff shall we...
    
    ----------------------------------------------
    A) What's New
    ----------------------------------------------
    
    There are some major differences between this game, the previous ones,
    and its own co-op play, so let me explain the differences...
    
    Single Player Mode - After the first level this game becomes vastly
    different from the previous Ratchet & Clank games. The campaigns you
    go through cannot be completed alone, or at least the game doesn't think
    so... so you're accompanied by 2 robot body-guards. Your two robots
    have certain abilities and functions that make this game different:
    they can turn cranks for you, hack orbs, revive, throw EMP's, extend
    bridge cables, etc. All of their functions are controlled on the D-Pad
    of the PS2 controller. 
    
    Co-op Mode - The robots you have in single player are replaced with
    the second player is the main thing to note in this mode. Now the players
    have control over the 4 main functions of the robots so things may get
    tricky at first, but death is nearly impossible in co-op mode because
    as long as one player is alive it's not game over. After a player dies
    a 5 second counter ticks off, and when it reaches 0 the player is reborn.
    If both players are killed in that 5 second window its game over. 
    
    That's about it for my main concerns for those who just bought this game
    and haven't played through it yet.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    B) Weapons
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Even though this game has only 10 weapons, the things you can do with
    them make it as though there are 100 weapons. The first thing you'll
    probably notice is that the weapons can level up... increasing in power
    and performance as the level gets closer and closer to Lvl 10. The best
    thing about this game too, is that once you've beaten it and gone into
    challenge mode... you can buy the MEGA upgrades and level them up to 
    lvl 99! You can only buy the MEGA upgrade if they're lvl 10.
    
    NOTE: When the weapons become lvl 10 their names change to fit the
    new and improved power. They do not change their names after that though.
    
    Below is a list of bios for all 10 weapons of the game, including the
    game's own description for it aswell.
    
    NOTE: I excluded the amount of ammo the weapons hold because it all
    depends on the Alpha mods you put on them.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------
    Scorpion Flail ---> Leviathan Flail
    ----------------------------------------------------
    Cost: 75,000 ---> 1,000,000
    Damage: 400 ---> 3012
    
    Description: Legendary gladiator Quaternion X used to call this weapon
     "the old ball and chain". The Scorpion Flail extends to its full length
     when its weilder attacks, delivering a crushing blow capable of 
     disintegrating a small asteroid. Not recommended for children under 3
     years of age.
    
    Recomendations: Freeze Mod, 4 Ammo Mod, 6 Area Mod
    
    ----------------------------------------------------

    Cost: Start With ---> 2,250,000
    Damage: 10 ---> 168
    
    Description: The dual vipers are sure to please even the most hard-boiled
     weapons fanatics in the galaxy. The nano-optic refire technology and
     unparalleled ammo capacity promise a better tomorrow for all Dreadzone
     contestants.

    Description: The Magma Cannon is the pride of the Vox Industries personal
     protection line. This weapon is a quick firing, two-handed monster that
     spits a cone of searing hot magma. Reactor says, "I may be a lousy shot,
     but this baby can hit anything!"

    Damage: 120 ---> 1034
    
    Description: When Vox said, "I need a gun that launches highly explosive
     homing mines," his weapons design team thought he was crazy. Maybe he
     was, because he fed them all to a leviathin. But the new design team
     gave DreadZone one of its most beloved and deadly weapons.
    
    Recomendations: Timebomb Mod (for fun), 4 Ammo Mod, 6 Area Mod

    Damage: 200 ---> 1550
    
    Description: The B6-Obliterator was voted "Weapon of the Year" by the
     Galactic Association of Ridiculously Unnecessary Firepower. You'll buy
     if for the precision ground targeting, but you'll love it for its
     gratuitous destruction.
    
    Recomendations: Mini-Bomb Mod, 2 Ammo Mod, 8 Area Mod
    
    ----------------------------------------------------
    Arbiter ---> Silencer
    ----------------------------------------------------

    Description: The Arbiter fires high velocity, carbonox-armor-piercing
     rockets whos explosions reverberate across the fabric of space and time
     and into dimensions as yet unknown. Ace Hardlight gave this weapon its
     name after using it to settle a legal dispute with his former agent.
    
    Recomendations: Napalm Mod, 6 Ammo Mod, 4 Area Mod
    
    ----------------------------------------------------

    ----------------------------------------------------
    Cost: 50,000 ---> 1,500,000
    Damage: 500 ---> 4046
    
    Description: The Fusion Rifle uses a patented form of hydrogen fusion
     combined with a state of the art magnetic optics scope for long range
     accuracy. Gleeman Vox keeps this weapon handy at board meetings in case
     he gets interrupted.
    
    Recomendations: Shock Mod, 3 Speed Mod, 7 Ammo Mod
    
    ----------------------------------------------------
    Holoshield Launcher ---> Omni-Shield Launcher
    ----------------------------------------------------
    Cost: 20,000 ---> 750,000
    Time: 10 ---> 54
    
    Description: DreadZone's Holoshield Launcher is a technologically improved
     version of the top-selling Gadgetron item. This device allows you to
     shoot out a portable shield any time and anywhere. The Holoshield's
     patented quantum technology allows your shots to pass through while 
     blocking all enemy fire.
    
    Recomendations: Brainwash Mod, 2 Speed Mod, 8 Ammo Mod
    
    ----------------------------------------------------
    Mini-Turret Launcher ---> Quasar Turret Launcher
    ----------------------------------------------------
    Cost: 100,000 ---> 2,000,000
    Damage: 50 ---> 238
    
    Description: For this weapon, Vox Industries "borrowed" patented mini-turret
     technology first developed by MegaCorp in the Bogon Galaxy. When a team
     of MegaCorp lawyers came to Vox Headquarters to present ligitation they
     quickly ended up as contestants on DreadZone. MegaCorp has since ceased
     legal recourse.
    
    Recomendations: Freeze Mod, 2 Speed Mod, 8 Ammo Mod
    
    ----------------------------------------------------
    Harbinger ---> Supernova
    ----------------------------------------------------
    Cost: 2,000,000 ---> 3,000,000
    Damage: 5000 ---> 19967
    
    Description: The Harbinger is Vox Industries' answer to its two biggest
     competitors: the Apocolator and the RYNO. Shellshock says, "Those two
     guns are like sissies. Weak sissies from the sissiest place in Sissyland."
     The Harbinger, on the other hand, is the final word in gratuitous 
     destruction. One tap of the trigger and you'll lay a path of devastation
     from here to the other end of Shadow Sector.
    
    Recomendations: Freeze Mod, 10 Ammo Mod
    
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    C) Mods
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Mod is short for Modification (as you probably know) and are used in
    this game to... you guessed it... modify your arsenal. Every weapon has
    two Mod types: Omega and Alpha Mods. Omega mods are performance mods
    and Alpha Mods are stat inhancers.
    
    Below is a list of both kinds of mods... and a brief description of what
    they do.
    
    
    Omega Mods
    ----------------
    
    Napalm - This can only be equiped to explosive type weaponry. When the
             ammo detonates, pools of lava shoot out and coat nearby objects
             as well as enemies, causing damage in the process.
    
    Time Bomb - Another explosive only Mod. The Mod only activates when the 
                explosive makes contact with an enemy. It's like the sticky
                grenades from Halo, it sticks to the enemy for a short period
                of time and then explodes in a fury of fire and lightning.
    
    Freeze - Slows down and freezes enemies solid depending on how much
             endurance they have. Keep blasting with the freeze Mod and the
             enemy will become a solid chunk of ice.
    
    Mini-Bomb - Explosive Only. When the explosive detonates, homing bomblets
                seek and destroy nearby enemies.
    
    Morph - Turns enemies into decoy animals when their health reaches 0.
    
    Brainwash - Turns enemies against each other when and if fully infected.
    
    Acid - Enemies slowly take damage. It is a dead giveaway they're taking
           damage if they're glowing green.
    
    Shock - All adjacent enemies to the one(s) hit recieve a blast of lightning.
    
    
    
    Alpha Mods
    -----------------
    
    Speed - Increases rate of fire
    
    Ammo - Increases the maximum amount of ammo a weapon can hold
    
    Aiming - Increases weapon accuracy
    
    Impact - Increases the knock-back effect of the weapon
    
    Area - Increases the destructive range of weapons
    
    XP - Increases the amount of experience recieved
    
    Jackpot - 50% more bolts dropped by enemies
    
    NanoLeech - Causes enemies to drop nano-orbs
    
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    D) Gadgets
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    All gadgets in this game are auto-controlled by the game's intelligence
    or can be directed to by way of your robot friends.
    
    Below is a brief statement of what your robot friends do...
    
    
    EMP - knocks out the 70-milimeter turrets and Landstalkers for a brief
          period of time. Controlled with the Left D-Pad.
    
    Grind Cable - shoots a cable across a gap so you can grind across. 
                  Controlled with the Right D-Pad.
    
    Shield Link - encase a friendly in an invulnerable shield while they do
                  a certain job. Controlled with the Right D-Pad.
    
    Hacking - activate hacking orbs in order to proceed for certain objectives.
              Controlled with the Right D-Pad.
    
    Revive - restores a dead robot to full health. Controlled with the down
             on the D-Pad
    
    Ravage - have the robots unleash a bomb that emits laser beams that do
             incredible damage. Filled up by taking and dealing damage. 
             Controlled with the Up D-Pad.
    
    Regroup - call your robots to your side. Controlled with the Down D-Pad.
    
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    E) Skill Points & Exterminator Cards
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    Ratchet: Deadlocked has a total of 165 skill points, exactly 15 for
    each area. Some are very hard and some are very easy and some are very
    tricky. Below are the cheats that are unlocked by getting the required
    number of skill points.
    
    Skill Points                                Reward
    ----------------                          ----------
       5                                      HUD Color
       10                                    Gangsta Guns
       15                                   Mirrored World
       20                                    Remove Helmet
       25                                Exterminator Bot Heads
       35                                    Super Bloom
       45                              Super Morphing Freeze Wrench
       60                                      Weather
       105                                    Kill Quark!
       120                                    Color Blind
       140                                Morph Mod on Vehicles
    All Cards                                 Ninja Mode
    
    This game also has 6 "exterminator cards," which are symbols of
    accomplishments you've done throughout the game. Having all 6 cards
    means you have 100% game completion.
    
      Card                                      Unlocked by
    ----------                                ---------------
    Shellshock                        Aquired every weapon and omega mod
    Eviscerator                         Increase Nanotech to 100
    Reactor                             Mega status on all weapons
    Ace Hardlight                        400,000 DreadZone Points
    Slugga                       Completed all levels on 5-star difficulty
    Gleeman Vox                           Obtained every skill point
    
    
    Luckily this game tells you the requirements for the skill points, even
    for which challenge they're on if necessary. If you can't find out which
    enemy is which, (that they refer to in the planets) go into your stats
    menu and kill an enemy and see, by looking at the number of kills you
    have, what the name of that enemy was. 
    
    NOTE: The cheat "Kill Quark!" turns all DZ Strikers into Captain Quark,
    so use that information to easily figure out which enemies are DZ
    Strikers (the other kind are DZ Beserkers).
    
    IMPORTANT NOTE: If you know you should have gotten a skill point but
       didn't, try again but remove the Omega Mod. (The only skill point
       I needed this for was the "In A Row" in the Valix Belt)
    
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    F) Skins
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    For those of you who don't know, skins is a term for the look of the
    player in the game. An example is that Jak from the game series Jak
    and Daxter is a playable skin in this game. Gameplay is the exact same
    no matter who you look like.
    
    There's a trick to buying the skins. Skins cost a certain number of 
    stars, right, and I found out that the connection between the stars and
    the difficulty are the same thing. When you beat a level under a certain
    difficulty, the corresponding stars are granted. If you beat a level
    under 4 star difficulty, for example, you gain 4 stars to go buy skins.
    In order to buy all the skins you need to complete every last level, even
    the last 4 levels against Vox at 5 star difficulty (Exterminator).
    
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    G) Hints & Tips
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Easy Bolts - This works especially well in Challenge mode because with
         the bolt multiplier you can get a total of 5,000,000 bolts in 2
         minutes time. Just do the End Zone dread challenge, in the Battledome,
         using weapons with the shock mod attached. The best weapons for the
         job are the ones with great blast diameter like the B11-Vaporizer
         or the Leviathan Flail.
    
    Easy Level 99 Weapons - Same trick as the easy bolts, play through the
         End Zone dread challenge in the Battledome. If you use only one 
         weapon, it'll level up like crazy... my screen showed my weapon's
         level was 42 but the message on the screen said it leveled up to
         31!
    
    Easy Times Going Through 5 Star Difficulty - The best trick I found to
         work if i couldn't get past a very hard level was to team up with
         a friend in co-op mode... and seeing as how this game can switch
         between single player and co-op for the same file... you can just
         savagely own everything. The best part about the co-op gaming is
         both players have to be dead within a 5 second window of each other.
    
    (+)  The easiest way to get the skill points is to complete their 
         requirement on 1-star difficulty. 1-star may seem way too easy, but
         with some skill points you need it to be as easy as it can be.
    
    (+)  When fighting a really tough enemy or enemies or boss, just remember
         to set out a group of mini-turrets, even though they don't do much
         damage solo, in a pack of 8 along with you wailing on the boss...
         he'll fall in a matter of seconds.
    
    NOTE: Feel free to e-mail me if you need any more hints or tips

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    II) Walkthrough
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The following is the complete walkthrough for game. I do spoil everything
    so those who don't want anything spoiled, feel free to play through the
    game until you get stuck and need help.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    AA) Training Area
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This is a very simple level, put the rectile over the first enemy,
    put the rectile over the second enemy and fire, then put the rectile
    on the last enemy and fire. Then you gain movement control. Jump up
    the steps and Clank will power up your mini-map. Red dots are enemy
    units. Shoot the 3 remaining holo-targets and activate the teleporter
    to proceed. The flashing blue/white stars are important goal markers.
    
    After the cut-scene, run across the holo-bridge and just simply shoot
    or hit your enemies with your wrench to kill them. Kill all the enemies
    in the area and use the teleporter and you're done with the intro.
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    AB) DreadZone Station
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    This place is basically your base of operations. You can buy ammo and
    weapons here as well as upgrade your mechs. The game is simple, if you
    see a glowing blue star, or have a world that's not checked off yet,
    go to it and complete it. 
    
    First thing's first... you should notice a vendor machine infront of
    you when the camera shifts to you. I'll give updates on both the robot
    shop and the vendor as the guide progresses. 
    
    [Vendor]
    B6-Obliterator    15,000
    Acid Mod           5,000
    
    Your first task here is to go to Al's Robot Shop and retreive your
    robot friends. They'll help you through your time at DreadZone. The
    robots are even costomizable too! You can buy them upgrades, heads,
    and colors at alls robot vendor thing. Free means you already own them
    and choosing them causes the desired change.
    
    [Al's Robot Shop]
    WEAPONS
    Shield Link       15,000
    
    PAINT JOBS
    The Royale        FREE
    The Commando      1,000
    
    HEADS
    DreadZone 3030    FREE
    
    Next task is to go to the Mission Control Room and talk to Clank. The
    game doesn't get much more complicated in DreadZone Station. You'll see
    a containment shuttle land somewhere, and its located by the flashing
    star on the mini-map. Go to the ship and press triangle to start the
    BattleDome challenge.
    
    
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    AC) Marauder
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Advanced Qualifier
    ------------------
    For starters, just defeat the first wave of enemies to start the tutorial
    of how to revive a robot. After the brief tutorial, head towards the 
    star and jump onto the platforms that're hovering over the lava. Kill
    the waves of DZ Strikers and Bladeballs and more hover pads will appear.
    Jump across the pads and destroy the next waves of enemies. The lava
    gap separating the two large floors is sealed now, so cross to the other
    end and defeat another series of enemies. After they're gone, press
    square by the crank node and crank it until it sinks into the ground...
    then you can proceed over more hover-pads.
    
    This last part is kind of scary, there's a 70 milimeter turret at the
    end of the pads with a shield surrounding it (they all do anyways). Press
    Left on the D-Pad to have a robot shoot an EMP at the turret to disable
    it and turn its shield off. With the turret temporarily disabled, attack
    and destroy it to end the first challenge.
    
    After another cutscene you find out about the interplanetary shuttle,
    this is located where you first started in DreadZone Station. It is used
    throughout the game to change planets and do campaigns and other missions.
    
    Take the shuttle to Catacrom Four to start your very first Campaign. Or
    do the 2 Dread Challenges in the Battledome.

    Defend against the 10 rounds of opponents..... that's it
    
    Dread Challenge:::The Big Sleep

    Try to show a sense of urgency for this challenge, because along with
    the part of the mission (to kill all the enemies) your health is
    constantly draining away. Look for nano-orbs when your health gets low.
    If you're having difficulty, this can wait until later.

    Dread Challenge:::Assault on the Frozen Tundra
    -----------------------------------------------
    This challenge is difficult mainly because the only weapons you can
    use are the ones found throughout the area. Use the weapons freely
    since they don't affect your ammo.
    Go around the temple and activate the 4 nodes placed at ground level
    
    Dread Challenge:::Shoot to Kill
    --------------------------------
    This mission gets incredibally difficult the higher the difficulty
    setting. At 5 this is about the hardest mission. Basically you are
    trapped in a self-moving landstalker that runs on a designated path.
    Placed throughout the path are floating orbs that award you points for
    dealing damage to them. Blue orbs give points, black orbs destroy orbs
    around it (though i'm not sure whether you still get the points), and
    the yellow/gold orbs gives you jackpot time. The goal is to have the
    required points by the time the challenge ends. Just find the floating
    orbs and blast them, along with any enemies that feel they can take a
    landstalker.
    
    Dread Challenge:::Whack-A-Swarmer
    ----------------------------------
    THIS ONE IS FUN! You get the B6-Obliterator and the Magma Cannon to
    destroy every last swarmer within the confined area. You literally have
    to destroy every last swarmer too, but if you have the shock mod on
    your weapon you'll find it difficult to lose.
    
    Dread Challenge:::Robots in a Barrel
    -------------------------------------
    You're back in the first dome you entered when you first came to Shaar.
    Basically just kill all the enemies in each wave.

    turret and the rest of the enemies
    5) Hack your way through the next 2 barriers
    6) Defeat the enemies in the area first, then take out the Stalker
    Turret (There's a single wall of light you can use as a 1-way shield).
    7) Hack through the next set of orbs
    8) Defeat the wave of swarmers and hack the last orbs
    
    Node Overload
    --------------
    1) Use the jump pad to get to the upper level
    2) Destroy the evil landstalker and head to the first node
    3) Destroy the enemies around the 1st node and capture it
    4) Do the same thing to the next 5 nodes and you win (pretty simple huh?)
    
    TIP: It'll save you some time if YOU capture the 6 nodes because then
    you'll get a skill point
    
    Refinery Ambush
    ----------------
    1) Hack all of the orbs in the room ahead of you while defending your
    robots (3 sets of 4 orbs)
    
    Chains of Villainy
    ------------------
    1) EMP the evil landstalker and destroy it with yours
    2) Use the mortar launcher to destroy the link of those balloon-looking
    things.
    3) Place your landstalker in the middle of the nearest gate opening and
     fire some mortars at the link of that balloon (that way you don't get
     ambushed).
    4) Head left from there, back in the first room, and go through that
      direction's gateway
    5) Defeat the nearby enemies and destroy the link to the balloon, then
      jump across to the other side of land with your landstalker
    6) Peak around the next corner and just target the link to the last
      balloon and destroy it to win
    
    Reward = Blue Medal
    
    Dread Challenge:::Swarming the Gauntlet
    ----------------------------------------
    You're back in the labyrinth of death and your only goal is to go
    around the labyrinth killing the required number of enemies with your
    weapons restricted to the ones you find. The time given to you should
    be enough if you keep moving from one room to the next. The shock mod
    also helps here.
    
    Dread Challenge:::Scoring with the Blarg
    -----------------------------------------
    Same thing as on Shaar, you're in an automatic landstalker with controls
    only on the turret part and you need to score the required amount of
    points by destroying the floating orbs. Enemies will also attack you
    here, so destroy them so you don't lose to having 0 health.

    Static Deathtrap
    -----------------
    1) This one I think is extremely fun, the only thing you need to do
    is defeat wave after wave of enemies using the hunter mine launcher with
    auto-restoring ammo!
    
    Marathon
    ---------
    1) This mission has a sense of urgency planned into it, seeing as how
    you have a time limit. Quickly open the node up and have the bots capture
    it while you clear the room of enemis.
    2) With the node captured, use the light beam things as a grind rail
     and grind to the next area
    3) This area's the same thing, open the node, capture it, move on to the
       next one
    4) Opening the 3 nodes makes the hoverpads over the lava stuff appear,
       so go across them and take the last node
    
    Reactor Battle
    ---------------
    The goal of this battle is to defeat Reactor and that's it. He has a
    good number of moves that do considerable damage but are easy to evade.
    
    Attack 1: Palm Lasers (shows you his hand)
    
    Attack 2: Dashing Hit (rev's up his foot like a bull)
    
    Attack 3: Radiation Waves (glowing blue hands)
    
    If I forgot any moves its because i kill him too quickly, the leviathan
    flail and holoshield do good as a team for me.
    
    Reward = Crusader skin
    
    
    Dread Challenge:::Zombie Attack
    -------------------------------
    The only available weapons are the ones you find (they respawn too) and
    your goal is to survive the 2 minutes of zombie madness (Executioners
    come in for about the last 45 seconds).
    
    NOTE: The big targeting symbols on the floor mean that's where the explosive
    barrels will land... and they do damage if they land on you.
    
    Dread Challenge:::Heavy Metal
    ------------------------------
    Defeat the waves of increasing size enemies and thats it. You'll also
    notice the little rod things protruding from the ground, the rings
    they emit do damage and can be shut off with an EMP.
    
    Dread Challenge:::Endzone
    --------------------------
    This challenge is only hard if you don't know how it works. There's a
    barrier behind you when it starts up and your job is to make sure the
    massive groups of swarmers never cross the barrier. This can be solved
    with a simple shock mod and leviathan flail or well placed holoshields
    with shock Mod.

    Dread Challenge:::Time Extension
    ---------------------------------
    This is a more 3D version of the hoverbike races... you're now piloting
    the hovercraft and you must fly through the pre-determined rings. This
    is easy as long as you focus on the rings.

    2) Fight your way to the other building, capturing the node in the

    Hoverbike or Bust
    ------------------
    1) Carefully move ahead and EMP and destroy the 70 milimeter turret
       along with the other enemies
    2) Hack the 2 orbs attached to the turrets remains and proceed up the 
       hill and toward the Ace Hardlight statue
    3) Look down from the top of the hill, on the other side, and observe
       the enemy numbers... there should be another 70 milimeter turret too
    4) EMP and destroy the turret and defend the bots as they hack the orbs
    5) Head into the building on the left, destroy the turret in there, and
       hack the last 2 orbs
    
    Seek and Destroy
    -----------------
    This mission is pretty simple for an idea, there are 12 drones racing
    around and you have to use the hoverbike and its lasers to destroy them.
    The drones follow the exact same path the entire game, so if you're 
    wondering where they are, look on the map and where you've seen them before.
    It takes several shots to blow them up, so be patient.
    
    The Turn On
    -----------
    1) Kill the Exterminator infront of you and proceed into the building
    2) When you get in the building take a left, you'll see an opening for
      a room with a node in it.
    3) Capture the node while defending the bots and destroying the ambushes
    4) Continue down the hallway until you come to another room with a node
     in it.
    5) Capture the node and fight your way out of the building
    6) Go across the field and into the opposite building
    7) Head toward the direction of the last star until you find yourself
       outside
    8) You'll notice the node is about a floor higher than you, but when
       you proceed further you'll enter another building and there is a 
       large ramp to the left
    9) Never mind the dome-barrier and head left and onto the catwalk thing.
    10) Move over to the node and capture it
    
    Blast of Fresh Air
    -------------------
    1) Exit the building and destroy the 70 milimeter turret
    2) Head up the hill and have the bots set charges on the Ace Hardlight
       statue
    3) When the statue blows up, you win
    
    Reward = Gold Medal
    
    
    Dread Challenge:::Turret Trouble
    ---------------------------------
    In my opinion, the trouble with this turret is that you can't get out
    to kick the enemies butts. The name of this game is to defend the turret
    using its cannons... sounds simple but you'll be attacked from both sides.
    If you have a friend, co-op makes this much easier.

    Defeat the 6 rounds of enemies along with the fact that your weapons
    change on their own terms... but with infinite ammo.
    
    Air Drop
    ---------
    This challenge is nothing but kill the enemies while evading the droping
    cans and survive for the given amount of time. Watch the symbols on the
    ground and when you see one turn red, get out of there.
    
    Eviscerator Battle

    Dread Challenge:::Higher Ground
    --------------------------------
    1) Grind the laser rail and into the tower area
    2) Jump the set of hoverpads and up to the next level (every other pad

    3) Swingshot over to the next set of hoverpads (there's even a swingshot
      orb in the middle of the hoverpads too
    4) Use the laser grind rail at the top to go to the next area
    5) Time the swingshot to the turning hover pad and ascend to the top
      floor
    6) Take the laser grind rails to the final floor and defeat the waves
      of enemies (when you get to the point where there's 3 rails, stick to
      the rail on the far right)
    
    Dread Challenge:::The Corkscrew
    --------------------------------
    1) Defeat the enemies in the area and make all of the floating balls
       turn green by hitting them (sets up the laser grind rail)
    2) Take the laser grind rail into the next area
    3) Same thing here, clear the enemies and activate the orbs, then take
       the rail to the next area

    Junking the Jammers
    --------------------
    1) Defeat the annoying swarmers and look at the shield infront of you.
     On the left and right of the sheild emitter are energy box things...
     use the landstalker's mortars to blow them to pieces and disable the
     barrier
    2) Continue down the path until you come to another barrier. Again, blow
     up the power generator things to put down the barrier.
    3) Go down a little further and blow up the only energy generator for
     the 3rd barrier
    4) Proceed to the big building thing infront of you, destroying everyone
      in your wake
    5) The tower/building thing has 4 generators (1 on each side) recessed
      into them a little bit. You have to blow them up from a good distance
      because getting next to them means you'd fall to your death.
    
    Energy Collector
    -----------------
    1) Use the jump pad infront of you to get to the upper levels
    2) Destroy the invading enemies and protect a bot as it captures a node
    3) Swingshot over to the other tower and capture its node
    4) Shoot a grind cable over to the next tower and capture its node
    5) Finally, locate the grind rail and grind over to the last node and
       capture it (you'll have to swingshot at the end of the rail)
    
    Shields Up!
    -----------
    To your lower right there's a building with a ton of hack orbs going
    all the way around it. Feel free to use the hovership to clear the
    area but you can also go on foot if that's easier for you. To beat the
    challenge just hack all the orbs.
    
    Shield Survival
    ----------------
    Enemies will attack the shield generator (the big building you're in)
    and your job is to stop them. Use the mini-map/radar to find and stop
    them by any means necessary.

       them. You'll do a good deal of your campaigning here with no or one
       bot.

    2) Head over to the node and capture it
    3) Heal the Puma at the healing pad if you need to, then continue on
      to the next node and capture it

    Showdown in Delta Block
    ------------------------
    1) Jump onto the lower level and destroy all of the enemies
    2) Stand on the button to lower your 2nd bot and free him... but you

    Dread Challenge:::Speed Trap
    -----------------------------
    Just like earlier in the game... drive through the checkpoint rings and
    use your guns to blow up the barrels before you run into them.
    
    Dread Challenge:::Spider on a Wire
    -----------------------------------
    Another one of the challenges where you're in the auto-piloted 
    landstalker and your goal is to destroy all the orbs and get the bonus
    orbs as often as it is convenient. This one is easier than the last 2
    landstalker missions though.

    It's the time you've been waiting for... to get revenge on Ace Hardlight.
    Ace has some good moves but if you have the Leviathan flail or any other
    level 10 weapons, it should make beating him a whole lot easier.

    -------------------------------
    Go all out in this challenge because your ammo and health are constantly
    being drained away by the DreadZone conditions. The arena is also getting
    smaller too, so eliminate the enemies as fast as you can while not being
    too trigger happy to waste all of your ammo.

    1) Go into the building infront of you and take the node
    2) There are 3 more nodes that make a circle around the building, so
      each time you capture a node, take a left and go to the next one until
      all 4 nodes are captured
    3) Head to the side of the tower you're in that's facing the only star
      left on the mini-map
    4) Swingshot across to the other tower and capture the node located in
      the middle of the tower
    5) Swingshot back and head to the right and follow the path to the finish
    
    Prison Break
    -------------
    1) Head into the room ahead of you and hack the orbs and protect the bots
    2) From there, go through the door the Executioner was infront of and
       keep going down the halls until the hall is blocked by a barrier.
    3) Look to the right and walk up the walls and into the next room
    4) Destroy the equipment in the room
    
    Escape
    -------
    You have two objectives for this mission:
    
    1) Destroy the 9 70 mm turrets
    
    2) Destroy the green box things that're attached to the station (some
       are right next to others too)
    
    Both objectives take place in the hovercraft and are indicated on the
    map by the blue/white flashing stars
    
    Reward = Nothing

    AR) DreadZone Station (Final Challenge)
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    To begin the last 4 challenges you must go aboard the shuttle that'd
    take you to the battledome (the place you completed all of the tournaments
    in), but this time you have another option... to go to the Control
    Level. If you feel like you're ready for the one way trip, proceed to
    the control room, if not... then do as you please. If you need tips for
    training and whatnot, there's a section in this guide just for that.
    
    Preparation for the final confrontation:
    
    (+) All bot upgrades & weapons
    (+) 1 or more lvl 10 weapons
    (+) Burning wrench upgrade
    (+) Not at the maximum difficulty setting
    (+) Freeze and/or Shock Mod
    
    Destroy the East Generator
    ---------------------------
    !) 10 minute timer

    2) Continue down the hallway and jump across the flipping hoverpads
    3) Hack the door at the end of the corridor
    4) Destroy the 70mm Turret and take the elevator up to the next floor

    6) Head into the room and keep telling your bots to set bombs while you
       guard them from the enemies
    !) The laser beam emitters attached to the ceiling can be easily destroyed
       if you find yourself losing more health to them than the enemies
    7) When all 4 bombs are set the middle column explodes
    
    Destroy the West Generator
    ---------------------------
    !) 10 minute timer again

      landstalkers
    2) Continue into the next area and capture the node while defending 
      yourself and the bots
    3) Run down the corridor (kill the snipers if you want) and turn at
      the left and ascend up via the elevator
    4) Destroy the couple enemies and cross the 2 sets of hoverpads
    5) Continue your path and destroy the door while defending your bots
    6) Same as last time, tell your bots to plant charges on the middle
      column and protect them while they do it. (holoshields really help
      here)
    
    Destroy the Central Core
    --------------------------
    !) 10 minute timer AGAIN

       turret up ahead
    5) Continue down the hallway and hack open the next door
    6) Destroy the 70mm turret in this room
    7) Plant the charges on the generator and protect your bots
    
    Defeat Gleeman Vox
    -------------------
    This is the last boss fight in the game and possibly the hardest too.
    If you have any level 10 weapons, now would be a good time to use them.
    
    Attack 1: Laser Beam emitted from the arms
    
    Attack 2: Shoots green balls that summon ghost enemies
    
    Attack 3: Drops black/gold orbs that morph into spider-bots
    
    Attack 4: Releases glowing blue spores that explode upon impact with
             the floor... indicated by the target rectile on the floor
    
    Attack 5: Sucks up something and fires it at you, sends shockwaves when
              it hits the floor
    
    Reward = Challenge Mode availability
    
    FUNNY NOTE: After the credits you see a movie showing the progress of
       the main boss from Ratchet & Clank: Up Your Arsenal... and he can't 
       be any more miserable. Hahaha
    
    
    After all is said and done the game will ask you if you would like to
    start over but this time on Challenge Mode: Enemies have higher health
    and deal more damage, but....... you can get the most kick butt stuff
    the universe has ever seen... the Mega stage weapons. Another perk of
    Challenge Mode is that you get a bolt mulitplier. What it does, is when
    you kill an enemy or enemies you'll see a number gradually get bigger
    thats located right next to your bolt thing in the upper right hand corner.
    The number you see is how many times the bolts you get. The only bad thing
    is that when you get hit, the generator goes back to x1. The generator
    luckily maxes out at x20 bolts... yeah, I know what you're thinking...
    that is a ton of bolts. 
    
    NOTE: Keep in mind that you can only buy the Mega versions if you have
    the weapon at lvl 10 first.
