    I.  Introduction
    The following is a guide to help find all hidden items in X-Men Legends II: 
    Rise of Apocalypse, the sequel to the 2004 hit by Activision and Raven Software 
    based on Marvel Comic's X-Men franchise.  Some items are for fun, showing you 
    covers to comics or concept art, while others have an influence on gameplay, 
    such as allowing you to carry more health and energy packs, or unlocking 
    special characters.  They will be listed by their type and the number I have 
    found out of the total available in parenthesis (Number found/number 
    possible).  
    
    If I don't put a description for an item, it's usually because it's fairly 
    obvious if you're walking around through a level. The sections they can be 
    found in are correct though.  If you would like a better description email me 
    at Youngblood0000@aol.com, and I will write one in a future version of the 
    guide.  Have fun, and I hope you enjoy the game as much as I do.

    IV.  Homing Beacons/Iron Man Armor (20/20 and 4/4)
     
    For every four homing beacons you find within an act, a secret Blink 
    portal will open at your base.  In each portal, you'll fight some 
    enemies and be able to acquire a piece of Iron Man armor.  In act 5, 
    you'll be able to locate Iron Man himself.  There are more than 4 homing 
    beacons in each act (6 to be precise), so the following will be enough to
    get you Iron Man.  Remaining homing beacons become experience point 
    bonuses.  The additional homing beacon locations are listed later in 
    this guide.
    
    Act 1- Genosha 
    Beacon 1- Cerci Caves (Across a bridge in a cave)  
    Beacon 2- Cerci Burrows (Beat all drones) 
    Beacon 3- Seawall (In room only the Brotherhood can access) 
    Beacon 4- Southern Habitats (in a hall that doesn't show up on the map, 
    After talking with the hydroponics guy) 
    Armor Piece- Iron Man's Gauntlets (Blink Portal in Sanctuary) 
    Act 2- Savage Land 
    Beacon 1- Cave (accessed from Jungle Canal)

    Beacon 4- Nuwali Shrine 
    Armor Piece- Iron Man's Chest Plate (Blink Portal in Avalon) 
    Act 3- Canada 
    Beacon 1- Part A (The Core)- Core Interior (off to the left at the 
    beginning) 
    Beacon 2- Part A (The Core)- Core Reactor (you must fly over a reactor pit 
    in the center after you've unlocked the doors) 
    Beacon 3- Part B (Infinite Factory)- Genetic Processing (go down the main 
    catwalk, and take a left.  The beacon will be on the right side of a little 
    wing off this platform, next to a breakable computer terminal and three 
    breakable metal barrels) 
    Beacon 4- Part B (Infinite Factory)- Assembly Factory (on a crate) 
    Armor Piece- Iron Man's Helmet (Blink Portal in Weapon X Facility) 
    Act 4- New York 
    Beacon 1- Part A (Platforms)- Perimeter Platforms (on the third platform) 
    Beacon 2- Part B- Sewers South- (behind a fan. Work your way around with 
    Storm, and fly over a gap. Use lightning to blow machinery up. Go back 
    around to collect it.) 
    Beacon 3- Part B- New York South Side (On the rooftop immediately to your 
    right at the start. Fly up to get it.) 
    Beacon 4- Part B- Holding Pens (When you're trapped by laser grids, go 
    around, break through a wall, and deactivate the lasers. Pick it up.) 
    Armor Piece- Iron Man's Jet Boots (Blink Portal in X-Mansion) 
    Act 5- Egypt 
    Beacon 1- Ra's Mouth (Fly to a stone you can only move with Rogue. 
    Push it.) 
    Beacon 2- Ancient Labyrinth (Across the right most of two bridges which 
    take you off the map) 
    Beacon 3- Temple of Anubis (Obvious, it sets off a pit trap) 
    Beacon 4- Temple of Sekmeht (Under some breakable jars, after making a 
    bridge with Iceman/Jean/Magneto) 
    Find Tony Stark- (Blink Portal in Teleport Chamber)- While in the portal, 
    you will need to destroy a pillar blocking the light, use the gleaming 
    jewel, and use the loose stone. He will then be freed.
    
    V.  Data Discs (20/20)  Collect any four data discs (they don't have to 
    be in the same act), and you will be able to carry more health or energy 
    packs.  The amount increases with the more you collect, as will be 
    described below. 
    
    Act 1- Genosha

    2. Queen's Lair (make a bridge, and it'll be that way)

    genetic processing section) 
    11. Part C (Madri Temple)- Madri Conclave (behind some wooden barrels) 
    12. Part C (Madri Temple)- Divine Sanctuary (in one of the rooms with a 
    fake artifact down a ramp. Fly past to find it.)  
    Reward- +4 Energy Pack Limit 
    Act 4- New York 
    13. Part B- Sewers West (Turn off the water before the holding pens. Go 
    across to where it shows you.)

    16. Part C (Apocalypse's Tower)- Tower Engineering

    Reward- +6 Energy Pack Limit AND +6 Health Pack Limit 
     
    That's a grand total of 12 packs of each type!

    They reset to what you should be able to carry for your experience level.

    in the Danger Room and gain experience points.  Upon completion of all 
    Danger Room scenarios, Professor Xavier will become available for use.

    Other discs are available without being found or bought. I refer to these

    VII.  Tech Stations (30/30)  Tech stations are pieces of machinery that 
    allows a one time permanent increase in your stats (striking, focus, 
    energy, health, body, and speed) for one character on your team.  The 
    character which activates the tech station will receive the bonus.  
    These bonuses become very high in later levels, so they're worth 
    looking for.
    
    Act 1- Genosha 
    1. Striking- Dead Zone (in a ship) 
    2. Focus- Desolate Mesa 
    3. Speed- Cerci Burrows 
    4. Health- Cerci Burrows 
    5. Energy- Seawall 
    6. Body- Grand Hall 
    Act 2- Savage Land 
    7. Health- Jungle Ruins 
    8. Speed- Jungle Pass (through a cave with a weapons cache in it) 
    9. Body- Nuwali Shrine 
    10. Energy- Nuwali Corridor 
    11. Striking- Elemental Tomb 
    12. Focus- Beyonder's Sanctum (in the area that circles around, you'll 
    see a pillar with a small fire in front of it. Put it out, and the 
    pillar descends.  Sneaky!) Source credit goes to Duskhk on gamefaqs.com, 
    who told abelxjake2004 how to get it, who then told me. 
    Act 3- Canada 
    13. Striking- Part B (Infinite Factory)- Engineering 
    14. Health- Part B (Infinite Factory)- Fusion Core (down hall to the 
    left) 
    15. Energy- Part B (Infinite Factory)- Genetic Processing (push crane 
    into rolling cylinders with a mighty character) 
    16. Body- Part C (Madri Temple)- Hall of Knowledge (down the hall from 
    where you meet Emma Frost) 
    17. Focus- Part C (Madri Temple)- Madri Cloisters 
    18. Speed- Part A (The Core)- Core Interior. In the room with the blue 
    cylinder thing that's one of the load screens, there is a breakable wall 
    that's above ground level. Fly up and melee attack the wall. Another 
    sneaky one, like the one in Act 2. 
    Act 4- New York 
    19. Striking- Part A (Platforms)- Radar Array Platforms (first radar array 
    platform) 
    20. Speed- Part B- New York West Side (in a flaming building, up high. 
    You can fly or jump up to it.)  
    21. Energy- Part B- New York North Side 
    22. Body- Part B- Stockade 
    23. Focus- Part C (Apocalypse's Tower)- The Pantheon 
    24. Health- Part C (Apocalypse's Tower)- Tower Engineering (in room with 
    Selene, the Black Queen) 
    Act 5- Egypt 
    25. Health- Ra's Mouth 
    26. Energy- Ancient Labyrinth (near the bridges which break as you cross 
    them) 
    27. Body- Temple of Anubis 
    28. Focus- Temple of Sekmeht 
    29. Speed- Hall of the Dead (press the gleaming jewel.  The tech station 
    will rise up out of the ground.)
    30. Striking- Vault of the Ages (you must destroy a bunch of bars to get 
    to this one. There are two paths. One goes left, and the floor will drop 
    a bit beneath you. If you take the other path {straight, then left} it's 
    a bit longer, but you can get to it with a non-flyer. I think you might 
    need the power from Apocalypse's machine to get to break the walls, but 
    I can't yet confirm that. If anyone can, please let me know. 
    
    VIII.  Extra Homing Beacon/Experience Point Locations

    grate in the middle path.  You'll have to go around and fly up to it 
    from below.)
    Act 4- New York
    1.  Part B- Sewers North (need Nightcrawler to teleport to it)
    (This alternate strategy from Darth Pacific:  There’s a switch on the floor 
    that Magneto or other long range manipulators can activate.  You have to point 
    the character to the immediate inside right of the door to get it to lock-on.)

    Act 5- Egypt
    1.  Hall of the Dead (use loose stone in room with a data disc in it)
