    1). Version History
    
       2.7 (10/20/2007): Another update long overdue. Ran through Chapter 1 of the
                         Story Mode (Missions 1-30) and made changes to some of the
                         strategies. Cleaned up more errors throughout the FAQ.
                         Added a list of Purple status SPA characters to section 7
                         of the FAQ (Status Effect Special Arts Types)
    
       2.6 (04/03/2007): Wow. Almost a year has gone by since I last updated this
                         FAQ. Read through some of my strategies for the Story Mode
                         Missions section and decided to make some changes. To be
                         specific, Mission 68: Sneak Attack. Also, reworked the
                         contents section above for neatness and organization.
                         Finally, cleaned up the Contact Information and Copyright
                         Information sections for easy (?) reading. Not much by the
                         way of additional content, but an update nonetheless.
                         Expect corrections in the In-Game Codes section following
                         in the next update.
    
       2.5 (05/11/2006): Cleaned up some grammatical / spelling errors in Weapons
                         List and Damage Amounts, and General Game Tips sections.
    
       2.4 (04/04/2006): Forgot to mention how to recognize if an In-Game Code was
                         properly inputted, so I threw that in.
    
       2.3 (03/16/2006): Added 1up.com to End / Credits and Copyright Information
                         sections. Finished the In-Game Codes section (for now)
                         with codes that I found. This section will be subject to
                         change as some of the codes may not work.
    
       2.2 (03/13/2006): FINALLY finished the Character Profiles / Statistics
                         section. In-Game Codes section will come with the next
                         update.
    
       2.1 (02/28/2006): Another long break from updating this FAQ. Starting up
                         again with more additions to section 9 still to come.
                         With the revelation of in-game codes for Urban Reign
                         (why they were found out so late is still a mystery to me)
                         I have decided to put the codes that I know of in a
                         separate section (for the readers' convenience).
    
       2.0 (12/14/2005): Inputted more statistics of the following characters:
                         Miguel, Ramon, Jose, Emilio, Reggie, Zach, Colin, Park,
                         BK, Grave Digga', Bones, Booma, Busta, Spider, Pain
                         Killah, KG, Kelly, Golem, Bain, and Cooper. Inputted the
                         profiles of Jake, Tong Yoon, and Chris. Added some notes
                         to the Weapons List and Damage Amounts section. 
    
       1.9 (12/07/2005): Decided that the Free Mode Section would be too repetitive
                         (since general strategies are listed in Section 10) and
                         removed the section from the FAQ. Added notes to Section
                         11 (Weapons List). Changed the Introduction to the Story
                         of Urban Reign into a recap of the first chapter of the
                         game. 
    
       1.8 (12/05/2005): Added LESTODANTE, a GameFAQs member, to the credits part
                         of the FAQ. Also added in LESTODANTE's corrections to the
                         Status Effects Special Arts Types section and additions to
                         the Basic Controls section.    
    
       1.7 (12/02/2005): Took a long break from updating this FAQ. Made slight
                         additions to the Story Mode Missions section. Started up
                         a section on Free Mode.
    
       1.6 (11/16/2005): Made a change to Dimitri Exodus's credit information,
                         completed the character profiles of Kadonashi, Grimm, and
                         Dwayne Davis. Completed inputting statistics for Marshall

                         Seth, and Paul Phoenix. Completed the entire Weapons List
                         and Damage Amounts section. Added one more tip to the
                         General Game Tips section. Added Supercheats.com to the
                         End / Credits and Copyright Info. sections of the FAQ.
    
       1.5 (11/11/2005): Added more information to the Basic Controls section of
                         the FAQ (including information from Dimitri Exodus).
                         Added Dimitri Exodus to the End / Credits section. Removed
                         Strategies part of Section 9 for use in an entirely
                         separate FAQ (which will come some time in the future).
                         Added the "Styles" of every character for Section 9, added
                         Golem's Unlock Method, added the name of Mission 100 for
                         Section 13, completed Shun Ying Lee's and Glen Kluger's

    ===============================================================================
    2). Introduction
    
       - Urban Reign is one of Namco's most recent masterpieces (in my opinion). In
         Urban Reign, many gamers will find tons of multi-player action, an
         extensive single-player story mode, many different characters to play as
         and much more. Having bought this game around the week that it came out, I
         immediately fell in love with its gameplay, music, graphics, characters,
         and just about everything else that this game has to offer. I bring to
         you, the reader, this FAQ in hopes that you share my interest in this game
         (to some degree) or at least that you have some questions about Urban
         Reign and are consulting this FAQ to answer them. Despite what many people
         say about this game, there is a lot more content to be covered in this
         game, so I hope you enjoy reading this FAQ and the said-content that it
         contains.
    ===============================================================================
    ===============================================================================
    3). Why did I write this FAQ?
    
       - This game is a very good effort by Namco at making a solid multi-player
         fighting game.  That's why I was surprised to see that no FAQs were even
         written for this marvelous game. Because of this and my interest in Urban
         Reign, I decided to write this very extensive FAQ. In it, you will find
         content that should answer many of the questions that you probably see in
         messages boards concerned with Urban Reign (which is my other inspiration
         for writing this FAQ/Walkthrough).
    ===============================================================================
    ===============================================================================
    4). Story of Urban Reign (*SPOILER WARNING)
    
        *This section will "attempt" to briefly recap the first chapter of the
         story of Urban Reign in its entirety. If you are consulting this FAQ as a
         first-time player, DO NOT READ THIS SECTION (if you don't want the story
         to be spoiled)!!
    
       -"Nobody's innocent. Justice? It's an illusion. Uncertainty is the only 
         sure thing. Uncertainty creates fear, and fear creates money. Green 
         Harbor... just another urban labyrinth... The El Dorado, full of fear to
         cash in on. Gangs rush in to get their hands on that gold. But those days
         are over now. My name is Brad Hawk. I'm a professional. I do things my
         way. I answer to no one. That's why the bad guys fear me and the good
         ones loathe me. That's who I am." ~Brad Hawk 
    
       - The story of Urban Reign takes place in Ragtown, Green Harbor. To be more
         specific, it takes place (primarily) in Chinatown of Green Harbor. Green
         Harbor is home to numerous gangs, all of whom are "vying for supremacy."
         The game begins with the ambush and, later, kidnap of a young man who goes
         by the name of KG. KG is a member of the notorious gang known as the Zaps.
         After the kidnapping, rumors began to surface and they suggested that
         Chinatown's boss, a young woman named Shun Ying Lee, was responsible for
         the kidnapping of KG. As luck would have it, Shun Ying Lee wss now the
         target of the Zaps. In order to deal with the Zaps, Shun Ying Lee went on
         to hire a professional brawler. Thus, the role of Brad Hawk is more clear.
         
       - Shun Ying Lee has Brad Hawk start his work by having him deal with the
         Zaps. Some of the first targets of Brad Hawk were Real Deal, Em Cee,
         Busta, and Spider, all of whom are members of the Zaps. Brad Hawk also
         dealt with members of Hell's Legion, a biker gang led by a man named
         Glen Kluger. Another gang that was beginning to feel the wrath of Shun 
         Ying Lee, through Brad Hawk, was the Outsiders, a hispanic gang led by
         Miguel Estevez. Dwayne Davis, renowned leader of the Zaps, began to launch
         some attacks of his own against Shun Ying, in response to her hired help.
         Ultimately, both Brad Hawk and Shun Ying became the prime targets of just
         about every gang in Ragtown, Green Harbor.
    
       - Throughout all of this fighting, KG's whereabouts were still unknown to
         all. As Shun Ying and Brad battled through the angry mob of gang members
         and misfits, another gang, the Westside Gym Boxers, led by Grimm (a world-
         ranked boxer) shows up to join the fray. Despite the odds being stacked
         against Shun Ying and Brad, they managed to get through all fighters. This
         led to a final showdown with Dwayne. A fierce battle took place, but the
         end result was a downed Dwayne and a victorious Brad Hawk. Just as the
         fight ended, however, some trucks roll in to "greet" Shun Ying, Brad, and
         Dwayne. It is here that KG is finally found (beaten nearly to death). The
         culprits responsible for the kidnapping were from groups unknown to many
         other gang members of Green Harbor. All of the fighting that spawned from
         a simple rumor became old news with the arrival of a new threat.

    5). Basic Game Controls / Body Regions and Damage / Status Effect SPA Types
    
       - This section deals with how to play the game (basically, the controls).
         Use this section if you are not too familiar with Urban Reign's gameplay.
         Since every attack is different for every character, putting what each
         command does in this section would be pretty pointless. Instead, the 
         strategies that accompany each character profile in section 7 will cover
         what SOME of these moves do (not all of them are important). This is a 
         general list of the moves common among every Urban Reign character.
    
      1. Dash: X Button
    
         *Performing a Dash while holding R1 button will result in your character
          running toward the locked-on opponent.
      
      2. Taunting: L2 Button
    
         *Performing a Taunt while your opponent is stunned on the ground while
          result in the stunned opponent getting up from the ground (still in a
          stunned state).
    
      3. Camera Movement: Right analog stick (R3)
    
      4. Target Lock: R1 Button
    
         *Use the Target Lock in combination with Strike attacks to hit specific
          opponents (useful in crowds of opponents). Can also be used with the
          Dash to run toward a specific opponent.
    
      5. Strike Attack: Up, Left/Right, Down + Circle Button
    
         *Using the Directional Button Up with a Strike Attack targets the Head
          Region of the opponent. Using the Directional Button Left/Right targets
          the Upper Body Region of the opponent. Using the Directional Button
          Down targets the Lower Body Region of the opponent.
    
      6. Down Strike Attack: Down + Circle Button near an opponent on the ground
    
         *Some Down Strike Attacks send opponents back on their feet or mid-air.
          The type of attack is different for all characters.
    
      7. Grapple Attack: Up, Left/Right, Down + Triangle Button
    
         *Using the Directional Button Up with a Grapple Attack targets the Head
          Region of the opponent. Using the Directional Button Left/Right targets
          the Upper Body Region of the opponent. Using the Directional Button
          Down targets the Lower Body region of the opponent.
    
      8. Down Grapple Attack: Triangle Button near an opponent on the ground
    
      9. Grapple Dash Attack: Triangle Button while performing a Dash
    
         *Directional Buttons can be used in combination with a Grapple Dash to
          target specific Body Regions.
    
     10. Neutral Grapple: Triangle Button
    
         *Simply pressing no button for a certain amount of time while in a 
          Neutral Grapple will result in your character pushing the opponent away.
          Neutral Grapples can also be cancelled when attacking the character
          performing them from behind.
    
     11. Neutral Grapple-Strike Attack: Circle Button during a Neutral Grapple
    
         *The Strike Attacks during a Neutral Grapple may be deflected by an
          opponent at any time, so trying for all three hits on harder difficulties
          is not usually recommended.
           
     12. Neutral Grapple-Grapple Attack: Left/Right + Triangle Button during a N.G.
    
         *Other Directional Buttons can be used to target specific Body Regions.
    
     13. Mid-Air Grapple: Triangle Button while enemy is in the air
    
         [Thanks to Dimitri Exodus for pointing out some information on this move]
         
         *Depending on where you grapple your opponent in the air, the air grapple
          attack will change. For example, if you air grapple an opponent from the
          back with Brad Hawk, he will perform a German Suplex instead of a Power
          Bomb or Power Slam.
    
     14. Picking Up/Discarding Weapons: L1 Button
    
         *For a short amount of time, characters picking up weapons are vulnerable.
          Try for a Dash Attack to foil their attempt at grabbing a weapon.
    
     15. Using Recovery Items: Circle Button while holding a recovery item
    
         *Though these items only recover Health or SPA Gauges, you may throw them
          at opponents as an attack, instead. Use the contents of the item first,
          however, or the opponent may take advantage of the recovery effects.
    
     16. Weapon Attack: Circle or Triangle Button while holding a weapon
    
         *Some characters perform different Strikes and Grapples with weapons than
          other characters. For example, Lin Fong can perform a multi-hit Saber
          Grapple Attack, but Brad Hawk cannot with a Chinese Saber. 
    
     17. Weapon Throw: X+Square Buttons while holding a weapon
    
         *Opponents may catch the weapon that you throw at them, so be ready to
          use a Dash Attack to catch them off guard. You can also catch a weapon
          with the L1 Button.
    
     18. Special Arts: Up, Left/Right, Down + Triangle + Circle Buttons
    
         *All Special Arts require, at the very least, two bars of the SPA Gauge
          to use. Status Effect SPAs usually cost the most to perform (around six)
          and Attack SPAs are in between two and six (around three or four).
    
     19. Attack SPA: Up, Left/Right + Triangle + Circle Buttons
    
         *Performing an Attack SPA without any Directional Button executes a
          Neutral SPA move (usually a spinning kick to knock surrounding enemies
          away). Neutral SPAs cost two bars of the SPA Gauge to use. 
    
     20. Status Effect SPA: Down + Triangle + Circle Buttons
    
         *The different Status Effects are listed below in Section 7. 
    
     21. SPA Recovery: Press all buttons rapidly and rotate Left Analog Stick fast
    
         [Thanks to LESTODANTE for contributing this command]
    
         *Perform this command while stunned to recover your SPA Gauge quickly.
          Take care to NOT press both TRIANGLE and CIRCLE or your fighter will
          perform a neutral SPA and will exit from the stunned status.
    
     22. Dash Attack: Up, Left/Right, Down + Circle Button during a dash
    
         *The Directional Buttons also specify which Body Region is targeted, just
          like Strike and Grapple Attacks.
    
     23. Recovering from Stun: Perform any SPA command while stunned
    
         *Alternatively, you can press other buttons (except for Directional,
          Shoulder, or Start/Select Buttons) rapidly to recover faster.
    
     24. Countering: Circle Button before enemy Strike Attack
    
         *Counters are different for every character. For example, Paul Phoenix 
          twists the opponent's arm and flips the opponent away from him as his 
          form of countering strikes.
    
     25. Double Attack: Triangle Button when faced or surrounded by two enemies
    
         *A Double Attack can be performed when one opponent is in front of you
          while another is behind you. A Double Attack can also be performed if
          two partners are in front of you (side by side). After stunning two
          opponents at once, use a Taunt to get both opponents near you. Then, you
          will be able to execute a Double Attack in this manner.
    
     26. Run-Up: X Button towards a wall
    
         [Thanks to Dimitri Exodus for pointing out some information on this move]
    
         *Run-Ups can be performed on opponents as well. Simply Dash towards an
          opponent (using Target Lock helps here) and you will "run-up" the target
          just as you would if you ran toward a wall. Any of the Diving Attacks
          can be performed as a follow-up to this type of Run-Up.
    
     27. Diving Grapple Attack: Triangle Button during a Run-Up
    
         *No other Diving Attacks may be used as a follow-up after a Diving 
          Grapple Attack has been performed.
    
     28. Diving Strike Attack: Circle Button during a Run-Up
    
     29. Diving Combo: Circle Button during a Diving Strike Attack
    
         *A Diving Combo can only be executed if another opponent is in the
          vicinity of the initial opponent being hit by the Diving Strike Attack.
    
     30. Dodging Strikes: Square Button while under attack
    
         *Dodging several Strikes in succession usually puts your character behind
          the attacking opponent, leaving him or her open for an attack.
    
     31. Deflection: Up, Left/Right, Down + Square Button while under attack
    
         *This move throws an opponent off balance, leaving him or her vulnerable.
    
     32. Super Deflection: Square Button timed with enemy attack (even if stunned)
    
         *This move is a good alternative to using SPA moves to cancel attacks
          while stunned.
    
     33. Attack Reversal: Up, Left/Right, Down + Square Button while under attack
    
         [Thanks to LESTODANTE for contributing this command]
    
        *"For example, Paul can reverse kicks (but not punches) by doing Right/Left
          + Square (maybe Up or Down direction should be ok) while being kicked.
          Kadonashi instead, can reverse punches with the same movement, but not
          kicks. Some other characters can block and reverse kicks OR punches too." 
    
     33. Grapple Break: Up, Left/Right, Down + Square Button while grappled
    
         *The Directional Button pressed must match your Body Region that is under
          attack. For example, if you performed a Grapple Break with Up and the
          opponent is attacking the Head Region, the Grapple Break will succeed.
    
     34. Ground Grapple Break: Square Button (without any direction)
    
         [Thanks to LESTODANTE for contributing this command]
    
         *This command is used to escape from mounted punches or grapples while
          stunned on the ground.
    
     35. Reversed Grapple Break: Square Button three times
    
         [Thanks to LESTODANTE for contributing this command]
    
         *This command is used to escape from a grapple that has been reversed
          as you tried to perform it. Specifically, you can use this command to
          escape from a grapple that you initially performed, but one that your
          opponent reversed.
    
     36. Quick Recovery: Up, Left/Right, Down + Square Button before landing
    
     37. Dash Dodge: Square Button during a Dash
    
         *This move does not have to be timed with an enemy's attack. It will 
          work regardless of timing of enemy attacks.
    
     38. Issuing Commands: R2 Button
    
         *Commands are not always executed right away, depending on the state of
          your partner. Partners under attack cannot take commands right away.
    
     39. Call for Double-Team: R2 Button
    
         *Using this near an opponent will have your partner run near you for a
          Double-Team Attack (if he or she is available to do so).
    
     40. Call for Help: R2 + Triangle Buttons
    
         *Using this command will make your partner target opponents that you
          are currently facing at the time of the command.
    
     41. Split Up: R2 + Circle Buttons
    
         *Using this command makes your partner leave your side to lure other
          opponents away from you. Having a partner with the Concentration Up or
          Super Armor Status Effect SPA makes this command more useful.
    
     42. Passing Weapons: R2 + Square Buttons
    
         *Nearby opponents can intercept a weapon pass to your partner. If your
          partner is under attack, the weapon pass is likely to fail.
    
     43. Switching Fighters: R2 + X Buttons
    
         *If this is done in a Story Mode Mission, Brad Hawk being taken down
          will still result in a Mission Failure (even if the character you
          switched to is still up).
    
     44. Double-Team Attack: Triangle Button when near your partner
    
         Like Mid-Air Grapples, a Double-Team Attack is dictated by where the
         opponent is grappled from. If you and your partner grapple an opponent
         from the front together, you may perform a different attack than one
         executed with your partner grappling from the back while you grapple in
         front of the opponent.
    
        "Some special Double Team attacks can be performed using the shoulder
         buttons (like the R2 Button). Example: Alex go to the back of his
         opponents and press UP+TRIANGLE, then press and hold down R2. His partner
         must close up to Alex back to perform a special DOUBLE TEAM GRAPPLE."
         
         [Thanks to LESTODANTE for adding to this command]
    
     45. Assisting in Grapples made partner: Circle Button while enemy is grappled
                                             by a partner
    
         *You may "assist" in grapples by performing Strike Attacks while your
          opponent is grappled by a partner. For example, Shun Ying may use
          Strike Attacks on Riki while Brad Hawk has him in a Neutral Grapple.
     
     #1 Note: Only commands number 35-42 can be performed if you have a partner.
    
     #2 Note: Not all characters can perform every command (i.e. Paul Phoenix can
              not perform Run-Ups against walls). Experiment with each character
              to find out what type of moves are available to each character. They
              are USUALLY identified based on the character's stature (i.e. Golem
              is a large character and he cannot perform any Run-Up attacks).   
              Knowing what each character is capable of will, ultimately, give you
              an edge in many different match-ups, no matter what the odds are.
    
     #3 Note: While not widely known, LESTODANTE informed me that some characters
              have special attacks (not with weapons like Shinkai can). One that
              LESTODANTE told me about was of Paul Phoenix. "Paul Ultimate
              Punishment: dash against opponents (X button) to tackle him, then
              press TRIANGLE+CIRCLE to break his neck. Depending from a front or
              back tackle the move will slightly change."

    ===============================================================================
    6). Specifying Regions and Regional Damage 
    
       - The way damage is determined in Urban Reign goes by where the attack hits
         the opponent and how much that area has been attacked. As a general rule,
         the more the body region (the area hit) is attacked, the higher the damage
         done to the opponent will be. The damage done to a particular region of
         the body is shown through the Region Gauge near the Health and SPA Gauges.
         The following are the three regions and how they are damaged or attacked:
    
         1. Head Region: This region is attacked by using Strike or Grapple attacks
                         with the Up directional button.
    
         2. Upper Body Region: This region is attacked by using Strike or Grapple
                               attacks with the Left or Right directional buttons.
    
         3. Lower Body Region: This region is attacked by using Strike or Grapple
                               attacks with the Down direction button.
    
       - Using this information, it is important to try to attack a specific region
         until it is "busted up" (turns red on the Region Gauge). Using this tactic
         will make it more difficult for your opponent to stand up to attacks that
         target the specified region, giving you the overall advantage. 
    
       - Some Missions require you to "bust up" certain regions of the opponent's
         body or bodies, so knowing how to attack each region is equally important.
    
       - Be wary of your opponent's stats and take them into consideration when
         deciding what body region to attack. For example, don't try to injure the
         lower body region of a character like Tong Yoon Bulsook, whose lower body
         endurance is near the maximum. Instead, attack a region that is weakest.
         If an opponent has no true "weakness" in a specific body region, just pick
         a region to attack and stay on that region rather than spreading all of 
         the damage among the three regions (which will take much longer). 
    ===============================================================================
    ===============================================================================
    7). Status Effect Special Arts Types
    
       - In order to perform a Status Effect SPA, press Down + Triangle + Circle
         Buttons simultaneously. For a fixed amount of time, your character will
         glow a specific color. The color of the glow, ultimately, determines what
         Status Effect your character underwent. They are all positive changes in
         a character's fighting ability. The colors of each Status Effect SPA and
         what they do are listed below, according to the Urban Reign Game Manual.
    
         1. Power Up (Red): Gives a 50% boost to the force of all of your attacks.
    
         2. Concentration Up (Blue): Automatically executes a Deflection or Grapple
                                     Break.
    
         3. Super Armor (Yellow): Reduces damage and keeps you from staggering.
    
         4. Arcanum (Green): The fighter will be able to perform special moves.
    
         5. Combination (Purple): [Thanks to LESTODANTE for correcting this part]
                                  
                                  The fighter will possess the Power Up effect in
                                  addition to one other effect. This varies by
                                  character. Here's a list of the characters with
                                  the Purple status SPA
    
                           Napalm 99 (Power Up + Armor + Health Recovery)
    
                           Douglas McKinzie (Power Up + Concentration)
    
                           Lin Fong Lee (Power Up + Concentration)
    
                           Golem (Power Up + Armor)
    
                           Marshall Law (Power Up + Arcanum)
    
                           Paul Phoenix (Power Up + Arcanum)
    
                           William Bordin (Power Up + Concentration)
    
       - Take advantage of these SPA moves when you can. Sure, they cost around
         four to six bars of the SPA Gauge to use, but they can help you survive
         missions much longer and win matches or missions easier.
    
       - Perform this move, if you can, while under enemy attack. It will cancel
         the opponent's attack and damage him or her slightly. This is also a good
         move to use when surrounded by multiple enemies.
    
       - Obviously, every character has a different Status Effect SPA. Knowing who
         has which Status Effect SPA will, again, give you an edge on what to
         anticipate from your opponent(s).
    
       - Like the game manual suggests, if you can or have to use a CPU partner in
         a match, choose a partner that has either the Concentration Up (Blue)
         effect or the Super Armor (Yellow) effect. Your partner will be more
         likely to survive and help you out if you need it. CPU partners are rather
         smart about using the Status Effect SPAs at the appropriate moment, so all
         you have to worry about is the enemy or enemies that you are dealing with.
    ===============================================================================
    ===============================================================================
    8). Statistics Key / Legend
    
       - In Urban Reign, all characters are identified (in terms of fighting power
         or ability) by their statistics in many different areas. These areas
         include the following:
    
       STK (Strike): This refers to damage caused by Strikes.
    
       GRP (Grapple): This refers to force of attack caused by Grapples.
      
       RGA (Regional Attack): This refers to force of attack on Body Regions
    
       SPA (Special Attack): This refers to force of attack caused by SPA moves.
    
       WPA (Weapon Attack): This refers to force of attack caused by Weapons.
    
       TGH (Toughness): This refers to endurance against normal attacks.
       
       HDE (Head Endurance): This refers to endurance of Head region.
    
       UBE (Upper Body Endurance): This refers to endurance of Upper Body region.
    
       LBE (Lower Body Endurance): This refers to endurance of Lower Body region.
    
       *I have created a system that measures each character's ability in a certain
        area on a scale of 1 (lowest) to 10 (highest). All measures of a character
        and his or her fighting ability are based on my approximations (I believe
        they are very accurate).
    ===============================================================================
    ===============================================================================
    9). Character Profiles / Unlock Methods / Statistics
    
       - There are 60 different characters to choose from in Urban Reign. Though
         many of them fight in similar manners to some of the other characters,
         their stats (obviously) set them apart from all others.  In this section,
         I will give the in-game profiles of each character (height, weight, and
         what have you), the methods for unlocking the characters, and, most
         importantly, the stats of each character. This section will be the most
         lengthy so be ready to refer to the table of contents if you want notes
         on a specific character. However, reviewing all stats for every character
         may give you an edge in fights.
    
       1a. Brad Hawk
    
          Style: All-Round
          Height / Weight: 185 cm. / 87 kg.

                   extensive fighting experience.
    
          Stats: (*Again, from 1 being lowest to 10 being highest)

    10). Game Modes
    
       - For those of you who are playing this game for the mere enjoyment of
         beating on your friends or relatives, I have to say that your fun will be
         rather limited. The only reason I say this is that everything must be
         unlocked through the Story Mode. So, in order to get the most out of Urban
         Reign, you'll want to unlock everything (or almost everything) that this
         game has to offer. Fortunately for you, the reader, I have included all
         strategies for every mission in Story Mode (on VERY HARD difficulty). Even
         still, if you want to take a break from cleaning the streets of Ragtown,
         Green Harbor, you'll be happy to know that there are a couple of modes to
         keep you and your friends (or relatives) interested in Urban Reign. The
         modes are separated into two categories: Challenge and Multiplayer modes.
         In addition to these modes, there are Extras (Tutorial, Practice, etc.)
         and Free Mode and they will also be covered later in this section.
    
       a. Challenge Mode
    
          Unlocked By: Beating the entire Story Mode.
    
          - The object of this mode is simply to take down as many enemies as you
            can as they appear one after another. Some of the basic rules of this
            mode are the following:
    
            1. Your Health Gauge always regenerates (to full) after every match.
    
            2. Your SPA Gauge always starts at half for every match.
    
            3. There is no time limit in Challenge Mode.
    
          - Additionally, there are options that can be changed to your liking and
            they include:
    
            1. The number of battles for a Challenge Mode "run" (from 10 to 50)
    
            2. The level of difficulty (VERY EASY to VERY HARD)
    
            3. The enemy's or enemies' abilities (average stats to maximum stats).
    
            4. The music playing during each match.
    
            5. The Challenge Format (either Single Player or Team Battle)
            
            6. The number of players (up to two players may battle cooperatively).
    
          - Players will fight enemies (up to two per match) until the number of
            matches chosen has been completed. Following the Challenge Mode "run"
            will be a Results screen that tells how players fared in throughout the
            entire set of matches. 
    
       b. Free Mode
    
          Unlocked By: Beating the entire Story Mode.
    
          - What this mode entails is simply choosing missions (from Story Mode)
            and playing them with any character(s) that you want. Following the
            completion of a mission will be a Results screen that tells how players
            fared in that particular mission. Also, at the Results screen, players
            are given a ranking (from E, which is lowest, to S, which is highest).
            Some of the basic rules of this mode are the following:
    
            1. You are allowed to choose any character that is NOT an opponent of
               the mission that you are choosing (i.e. you cannot play as McKinzie
               or Napalm 99 in Mission 70: Finishing Touches, which is the mission
               that requires you to defeat both of these characters).
    
            2. You are allowed to choose any character as a partner that is NOT an
               opponent of the mission that you are choosing (just like #1). In
               addition, you may only choose any character as a partner if the 
               chosen mission allows the presence of a partner (i.e. Mission 15:
               Fury, is a one-on-one mission only).
    
            3. Just like Story Mode, this mode is a single player mode only.
    
            4. You cannot choose to have weapons at the beginning of a particular
               mission (unlike Challenge and Multiplayer Mode).     
    
          - Additionally, there are options that can be changed to your liking and
            they include:
    
            1. The level of difficulty (VERY EASY to VERY HARD).
    
            2. The enemy's or enemies' abilities (average stats to maximum stats).
    
          - The Results screen, which follows upon the completion of a mission, is
            separated into the following criteria:
    
            1. Clear Time: Points gained and time it took to complete the mission.
     
            2. Max Combo: Points gained and highest number of combo hits. Note that
                          a combo constitute the number of successful hits on an
                          opponent in a row before being damaged by any attack. So,
                          basically, if you don't get hit, your combo won't ever be
                          broken. Try for this in all missions.
     
            3. Damage Taken: Remaining health and points gained.
    
            4. Partner KO: Points deducted due to partner being taken down. Note
                           that this does not apply for missions that do not allow
                           partners to be used.
    
            5. Recovery Item: Points deducted when recovery item is used. Note that
                              most missions do not even have recovery items.
     
            6. Play Bonus: Total of all points obtained from #1: Clear Time through
                           #5: Recovery Item.
    
            7. Fighter Points: Bonus value attributed to character used. As a
                               general rule, lower tier characters give higher
                               Fighter Points bonuses.
    
          - As a general rule, the more points you get at the end of a mission, the
            higher your ranking will be. Try to use lower-tier characters (*** or
            lower in Star Rating) on higher difficulty levels, don't get hit too
            much (or at all, if you can manage), and get high combo ratings for the
            best chance at getting an S Ranking on any mission.
    
       c. Multiplayer Mode
    
          - Again, this mode is not going to be as fun as you would expect at the
            onset of the game (basically, having absolutely nothing unlocked).
            However, there are plenty of different modes that are worth trying out,
            and they only get better as you unlock more characters, weapons, etc.
            Multiplayer Mode is separated into three different match modes and they
            are all further broken down in this section.
    
            1. Versus mode: This is a standard battle that you win by depleting
                            your opponent's health gauge.
    
            2. Weapon Battle mode: Compete against your opponent(s) to scramble for
                                   a weapon.
    
            3. Destruction Battle mode: Destroy your opponent's object while
                                        protecting your own. You win either by
                                        completely destroying your opponent's
                                        object first, or by having destroyed more
                                        of theirs than they have of yours when time
                                        runs out.
    
          - In addition to these modes are several different options that you can
            tweak to your liking. 
    
          - The following settings are all exclusive to the Versus mode 
    
            1. Knock Out: This setting only allows a match to be won by knocking
                          out (depleting the health gauge of the opponent). 
    
            2. Damage Amount: The amount of damage inflicted within a given time
                              (measured by points) determines the winner. 
    
            3. Regional KO: Choose whether an incapacitation of a body region 
                            register as a KO.
    
            4. Double Team KO: Choose whether a Double-Team grapple should
                               register as a KO.
    
            5. Quick SPA Gauge: Choose whether the SPA Gauge should be quickly
                                replenished during idle time.
    
          - The following settings are all exclusive to the Weapon Battle mode
    
            1. Weapon Scramble: The winner is the one holding the weapon when time
                                runs out.
    
            2. Continuous Possession Time: Win by holding onto the weapon for a
                                           fixed period of time (continuously).
    
            3. Total Possession Time: Whoever has been in possession of the weapon
                                      for the longest amount of time is the winner.
    
            4. KO Decision: Choose whether the match should be decided by KO.
    
            5. Max Weapon Damage: Choose whether a KO should be awarded when a
                                  weapon attack has been performed.
    
            6. Weapon Scramble SPA-0: Lets you choose whether the SPA Gauge should
                                      be reset to zero when you are holding a
                                      weapon.
    
          - The following settings are all exclusive to the Destruction Battle Mode
    
            1. Weapon: Attack and destroy an object with a weapon to win.
    
            2. Knockdown: Win by throwing an enemy at an object to destroy it.
    
            3. Demolition KO: Choose whether a KO is to be awarded when your own
                              object is destroyed.
    
            4. Quick SPA Gauge: Choose whether the SPA Gauge should be quickly
                                replenished during idle time.
    
          - Furthermore, there are settings that are common among all three modes.
    
            1. Single Battle: One-on-one match.
    
            2. Team Battle: Two-on-two match.
    
            3. 3-Fighter Battle Royale: Wage a Battle Royale between three players.
    
            4. 4-Fighter Battle Royale: Wage a Battle Royale between four players.
    
            5. Stage: Choose the background where the match is to occur.
    
            6. Round: Choose the number of rounds to play (one to three).
    
            7. Time: Choose the match's duration (one, three, or five minutes).
    
            8. Music: Choose the background music (Stage-Specific or Random).
    
          - These modes are a great departure from the trials that you have to face
            in the Story Mode so don't pass these modes up!! My personal favorite
            is the Weapon Battle mode!!
    
       d. Extras
    
          - This mode is basically the "Practice" mode of the game. There are four
            different options to choose from.
    
            1. Tutorial: This outlines the commands and details of the numerous
                         character actions within Urban Reign.
    
            2. Practice: Just as the name implies, it is the mode where you can
                         gain some practice against specific characters, using all
                         moves of a particular character, and more. 
    
            3. Fighter Files: This mode lets you check the profiles of all unlocked
                              characters of your game data.
    
            4. Credits: This mode lets you see the Urban Reign staff credits (only
                        after beating the Story Mode once).
    
       - These are basically all of the modes that Urban Reign has to offer beyond
         the very lengthy Story Mode. Use these to become even more familiar with
         your favorite characters and their abilities.

    11). Weapons List and Damage Amounts
    
       - There are about 27 different weapons (that I counted) in Urban Reign. This
         section will cover the names of those weapons and the amounts of damage
         that each one inflicts when used. Note that the damage amounts will be 
         estimated based on how much damage is inflicted with Max WPA (Weapon ATK)
         against an opponent with Max TGH (Toughness). Also, while there are 
         Special Arts attacks listed for most weapons, not all characters can use
         the Special Arts attacks. The following is a list of who can use SPAs for
         specific weapons. These particular SPA moves do more damage than normal
         SPA weapon moves (such as Brad Hawk performing one strong slash with any
         Katana or Wood Sword).
    
       Specific Weapon SPA Moves:
    
       *Only Dillan Anderson, Jack Bain, Ray Cooper, Douglas McKinzie, and Samuel
        Taylor can use SPA moves with the Sai, Knife, Butterfly Knife, and Hunter
        Knife. This SPA move is a knife slashing combo (usually four or five hits).
    
       *Only Shun Ying Lee, Lin Fong Lee, Shinkai, Ye Wei Cheng, Yan Jun Kwan, Sha
        Ying Lai, Hiro, Masa, Riki, Ryuji, and Lilian can use SPA moves with the
        C.Sword, Chinese Saber, and Lin's Saber. This SPA move is a three-hit saber
        slash combo with the final slash sweeping the Lower Body region of the
        opponent.
    
       *Only Shinkai, Hiro, Masa, Riki, and Ryuji can use SPA moves with the Wood
        Swords (Long and Short), Katana, and Shinkai's Katana. The slash is a more
        powerful version of a normal SPA Katana slash. Shinkai is the only fighter
        with a second Katana/Wood Sword SPA move. He performs a stab to the Upper
        Body region of the opponent, turns the sword, pushes it in further, then
        pulls it out to deliver one final slash across the Upper Body region of
        the opponent.
    
       Other Notes on Weapon Use:
    
       *Many characters can perform grapple attacks that use the weapon that they
        are holding. Golem, for example, can perform a three-hit combo while using
        an Axe. Shinkai has a whole load of different Katana grapple attacks.
    
       *Being hit with an SPA attack while holding a weapon usually results in
        dropping the weapon. Keep up a high SPA Gauge to keep the weapon in your
        hands and out of your opponent's.
    
       *Against the CPU, take advantage of your opponent using the Super Armor
        Status Effect SPA. You can hit your "Super-Armored" opponent without fear
        of being deflected because the CPU is programmed to stop deflecting most
        strikes in this state.
    
       *Throwing weapons at your opponent may sometimes result in your opponent
        catching the weapon. This is okay in some cases where you can follow-up by
        using a dash attack as he or she catches the weapon.
    
       *Obviously, all of this data is basically a rough estimate of weapon damage
        for each type of body region. Damage differs when it comes to grapple
        attacks with each weapon, so use this as a general guide.

    12). General Game Tips
    
        - As in most fighting games, there are some tactics that can be utilized in
          most every match. In Urban Reign, there are quite a few tactics that can
          be considered as options for taking down any particular opponent.
    
          1. Whenever possible, use your character's neutral SPA move (press the
             circle+triangle buttons without any directional button). These moves
             not only come out quickly, but they can also "cancel" your opponent's
             combo attack or break your character out of being surrounded.
    
          2. Get to know each character's (or at least your favorite character's)
             moves. Specifically, take into consideration their SPA status effects.
             Some characters have status effects that allow them to perform higher
             hit combo attacks while others allow you to damage your opponent's
             body regions more quickly and effectively. Using these moves in a 
             tight situation can help you take the advantage back to your favor.
          
          3. If you are at a loss when it comes to using certain moves, you should
             try to rely on lower body grapples. These are seldom counterattacked
             (not NEVER counterattacked) and they can lead you to a quick victory
             with their decent or, sometimes, devastating attack power. Damaging
             your opponent's lower body region will make it easier for you to knock
             him or her down to the ground.
    
          4. If you are going up against multiple enemies, focus on one at a time.
             Usually, the remaining enemies will back off (even on VERY HARD) but
             keep your character ready to use a neutral SPA move if you are about
             to be grappled from behind or attacked from behind. Also, try to take
             advantage of Double Attacks (press Triangle between two enemies) if
             you are outnumbered as they will deal out a high amount of damage.
    
          5. During many "boss" fights, the opponent will use his or her SPA status
             effect. If a character is glowing blue or yellow (meaning he or she is
             in the Concentration state or the Armor state), avoid that opponent
             until it wears off. You will probably be taken down quickly if you try
             to beat an opponent (who is in either state) to the punch. Sometimes,
             an opponent will glow purple when he or she uses a status effect. This
             means that the opponent has the Power Up status (Red) in addition to
             one of the other three status SPAs. Again, refer to section 7 of the
             FAQ for details.
    
          6. Whenever a weapon is available, try to use it against your opponent.
             NEVER try to pick up the weapon near an opponent (99% of the time, you
             will be hit and the weapon will be knocked away). Wait until your
             opponent is far or stunned and then pick the weapon up. Another tactic
             to try with weapons is to throw a weapon at the opponent and then run
             directly at him or her to perform a running attack or grapple. This
             works fairly often and will give you the opportunity to pick the 
             weapon up again while dealing some damage.
    
          7. Namco's Tekken series is famous for availability of juggling opponents
             for massive damage. The same rings true (somewhat) in Urban Reign. Try
             to become experienced at juggling your opponent with a variety of 
             moves at your character's disposal. For example, use Brad Hawk's three
             hit uppercut combo to send your opponent in the air. Then, punch your
             opponent using the neutral three hit combo twice in a row. Finally,
             end by quickly initiating his Left/Right SPA move for more hits. This
             juggle combo takes out nearly 50% of your opponent's health and, to
             top it all off, most opponents are defenseless in the air.
    
          8. When playing matches with a CPU partner, try to choose a partner with
             an Armor status effect or Concentration status effect. He or she is
             more likely to survive and defeat other surrounding opponents and,
             thus, he or she will be able to help you take out any remaining foes
             (This tip is also given in section 7). 
    
          9. Difficulty is a major factor in this game. On VERY EASY, opponents
             will seldom perform any attack. On VERY HARD, they are very aggressive
             and intelligent. They tend to deflect nearly every attack that you
             throw at them (on VERY HARD). Getting used to playing on this setting
             will only make the game easier to master.
    
        - Other than these tips, just remember that trading blows with an opponent
          is more likely to occur than finishing matches with a full Health Gauge.
          What I mean by this is that in order to become very experienced at Urban
          Reign, you will have to anticipate attacks before they even occur. This
          fighting game is not your basic beatdown game, so mastering deflections
          and strike/grapple dodges are key to getting beyond finishing fights
          with a battered body and a near-empty Health Gauge.

    13). Story Mode Missions
    
        - One thing to note about this section is that I am going to describe the
          mission objectives and how to accomplish them on the VERY HARD difficulty
          (so as to eliminate confusion of whether these strategies will work in
          any difficulty). Basically, giving you the VERY HARD difficulty method
          for beating a particular mission will make playing in other difficulties
          that much easier (obviously). Also, after each mission, you will be able
          to upgrade Brad Hawk's stats with points earned from a particular mission
          (the point amounts are 1 to 3 points per mission). In addition, after
          meeting certain conditions, you will unlock something after beating a
          particular mission (i.e. a new move for Brad Hawk to use in Story Mode,
          new characters, new weapons for Multi-player Mode, etc.). I will make
          note of these unlockables in section 7: Character Profiles. There are 100
          missions in total, so expect another lengthy section. Ready? Well then...
          Mission Start!!!
    
        Mission 1: Warming Up
    
        Opponent(s): Em Cee and Real Deal
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Since this is the first mission, you will find that the opponent's are
          rather unresponsive. Use this mission to practice beating down Em Cee
          and Real Deal (you will see quite often in other missions). Not too
          difficult at all. Try to practice juggling the opponent with strikes.
    
        Mission 2: First Job
    
        Opponent(s): Busta and Spider
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Again, this is another "easy" mission that you should have no trouble
          with. Try using juggle combo attacks for easy damage and a quick win.
          Be wary of back strikes and grapples, however.
    
        Mission 3: Declaration
    
        Opponent(s): Busta
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Busta down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This is a simple one-on-one fight that is easily won by utilizing
          lower body grapples and juggle combo attacks. An easy mission to say
          the least.
    
        Mission 4: Friendly Gesture
    
        Opponent(s): Rod, Seth, and Torque
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take one of them down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Just take aim at one of the three opponents (I usually attack Rod
          since he is the weakest of the three). Just attack away and this
          mission will be over very quickly.
    
        Mission 5: Child's Play
    
        Opponent(s): Nas-Tiii, Real Deal, and Ty
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take one of them down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Another "take one of them down" mission. Aim for Ty or Nas-Tiii for
          the greatest ease in completing this mission. Use those juggle combo
          attacks when you can and watch your back with the neutral SPA move.
    
        Mission 6: Turf
    
        Opponent(s): Reggie Boone
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Reggie down within the Time Limit.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - You get two minutes to beat down Reggie, which is more than enough
          time to complete this objective. Use lower body attacks (that is
          wear all of Kadonashi's students excel) and grapples to take down
          Reggie before your two minutes are up.
    
        Mission 7: Retaliation
    
        Opponent(s): Busta, Pain Killah, and Spider
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission is best fought by taking one of them down at a time.
          Go for Pain Killah first, then Busta. Finish off Spider last as he
          seems to deflect attacks and grapples quite often. Use your neutral
          SPA move and juggle combo attacks to take out these three.
    
        Mission 8: New Kid on the Block
    
        Opponent(s): Emilio Sanchez and Jose Ramirez
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - You will find that the Outsiders (Emilio and Jose being part of them
          obviously) are quite efficient at using deflections. Jose will go for
          grapples throughout most of the match, so be ready to deflect and/or
          dodge these grapples. Keep up the same strategy as in other missions
          for quick victory.
    
        Mission 9: Eye for an Eye
    
        Opponent(s): Colin Gardner, Reggie Boone, and Zach Parker
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission happens to be one of the first difficult missions of
          Story Mode. What you get is all three of Kadonashi's students to take
          down. Your best bet is to go for Colin or Reggie first. Leave Zach for
          last as he is the strongest of the three. Be wary of back strikes. If
          you are open, any of the three can and will use a running strike to
          knock you into the air. If this happens and you are surrounded, you
          can expect a fairly damaging juggle combo to hit you. Be ready to use
          the neutral SPA move often in this mission.
    
        Mission 10: Observer
    
        Opponent(s): Glen Kluger, Rod, Seth, and Torque
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Glen's men down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - You see Glen near the car? LEAVE HIM ALONE FOR THE ENTIRE MISSION!!
          If you bring him into the brawl, you are likely to get your a** handed
          to you. Just stick to beating down his lackies and you will finish the
          mission soon enough.
    
        Mission 11: The Proof
    
        Opponent(s): Jake Hudson
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Jake down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission is your first "boss-type" one-on-one mission. You end up
          fighting Jake in a bar. Use your grapples to throw Jake into tables,
          chairs, and walls for extra damage. Utilize your deflections when you
          can and DON'T rely on juggling combo attacks too much. Jake will often
          dodge or deflect your attacks if you use them too much. Mix up your
          strategy to keep Jake guessing and you will finish this match with 
          relative ease.
    
        Mission 12: The Unlucky One
    
        Opponent(s): BK, Busta, Pain Killah, and Spider
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - You get to take down four enemies for this mission. Despite the odds
          that are against you, you should not have too much of a difficult time
          with this mission. They usually back off if you are beating on one of
          them, but, again, be wary of back attacks. Use your neutral SPA if you
          get surrounded by all of them and try for juggling combo attacks when
          you have the opportunity.
    
        Mission 13: Paying the Price
    
        Opponent(s): Jose Ramirez, Miguel Estevez, Ramon Perez, and Torque
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission is a little more difficult than the last one only because
          the Outsiders (Jose, Miguel, and Ramon) tend to deflect grapples and
          strikes fairly often. Aim for Torque first and then, take down Jose or
          Ramon. Leave Miguel for last (since he is the leader, he happens to be
          the strongest of the group). This mission may take some time, so don't
          be afraid to use a hit-and-run strategy to take them all down.
    
        Mission 14: Right Stuff
    
        Opponent(s): Glen Kluger and Jake Hudson
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Glen down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Here's a mission that can get ugly very quickly, depending on how you
          approach it. If you keep away from Jake, you can approach this fight
          with a strategy similar to Mission 11: The Proof. However, if you are
          unlucky (or accident-prone) and Jake gets into the fray, then you'll
          want to be very careful or restart the mission. Taking both of these
          "boss-type" characters on by yourself is a little too difficult at
          this point (your stats probably are not very high, unless you used a
          GameShark or CodeBreaker).
    
        Mission 15: Fury
    
        Opponent(s): Kadonashi
        
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Kadonashi down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Mission 15: Fury, gave me quite a bit of trouble. Kadonashi has quite
          extraordinary stats (compared to Brad Hawk's) so you will have to 
          rely on deflections and missed attacks as your opportunities for some
          decent damage. Trying to beat Kadonashi to the punch will result in
          your failing the mission, so don't try it!! Be patient and wait for
          opportunities to attack without worry of heavy retaliation and you
          will walk away from this mission glancing back at a downed Kadonashi.
    
        Mission 16: Repercussions
    
        Opponent(s): BK and Grave Digga'
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This is the first mission that introduces the Westside Gym Boxers. 
          Both BK and Grave Digga' are a pretty tough team if they keep using
          Double Team attacks on you. Since you are in an alley, run down the
          alley and take one of them on at a time. DON'T use SPA moves in
          excess. Their SPA moves tend to have higher priority than your's
          (if their's are executed shortly after your's) and you will be hit
          down to the ground. The ante has been heightened for all of your
          missions, to say the least, so button-mashing is out of the question.
    
        Mission 17: Crashing the Party
    
        Opponent(s): Busta, Em Cee, Miguel, Spider, and Ty
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Mission 17: Crashing the Party is one of two missions that pits you
          against five opponents at once. Again, however, this is not too
          difficult to finish. Just attack one of them and watch your back,
          as usual, to keep yourself alive and kicking. These opponents should be
          ones that you have seen before, so you know how they fight. Use this
          knowledge to your advantage and anticipate their attacks for a quick
          and relatively simple win. 
    
        Mission 18: Hit-and-Run
    
        Opponent(s): Rod and Torque
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take the enemy down within the Time Limit.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - You get to fight Rod and Torque in the bar (just like Glen and Jake),
          so use those grapples and throw them into everything out in the open.
          Tacking on that extra damage will help you finish the mission within
          seconds. Use the Up SPA move when you corner either of the two (and
          repeatedly, if you can) for maximum damage and the win.
    
        Mission 19: Chinatown Welcome
    
        Opponent(s): BK, Bones, Booma, and Grave Digga'
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This is like a souped-up version of Mission 16: Repercussions except
          this mission gives you Bones and Booma (the other two boxers) as well.
          Approach this mission with caution and use a hit-and-run tactic. Being
          that they are boxers, they capitalize on being in close. Using such a
          tactic will hinder their offense potential and give you an edge in
          defense. Play carefully and patiently for the win in this mission.
    
        Mission 20: The Hungry Wolf
    
        Opponent(s): Tong Yoon Bulsook
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Tong Yoon down. 
    
        Strategy:
    
        - You battle Tong Yoon in the warehouse, which is somewhat of an edge.
          Try to throw Tong Yoon into the shelves and the walls for extra 
          damage and remember that because he is a kick boxer, his LBE is at its
          highest. Basically, DON"T USE LOWER BODY GRAPPLES ON HIM!! Try for the
          upper body or his head for most damage. Be wary of his SPA moves. They
          hurt A LOT, especially if you are cornered and he is able to perform
          multiple SPA moves in a row. Try your juggling combo attacks, but mix
          up your battle strategy for the best results.
    
        Mission 21: World-Ranked Boxer
    
        Opponent(s): Glen Kluger and Grimm
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - World-Ranked Boxer... I hate this mission with a passion!! You get
          Glen and Grimm (leader of the boxers) to deal with. Grimm alone is
          tough enough. But, when you include Glen on this mission, the amount
          of trouble that you will have on this mission is unmeasurable. The
          only tips I can give you are USE DEFLECTIONS AND DODGES WHENEVER
          POSSIBLE!! They will often attack you from behind if you try to aim
          at one of them, so just play patiently and carefully. 
    
        Mission 22: Ring of Fire
    
        Opponent(s): Grimm
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Grimm down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This fight is much easier than the last one. You get to fight Grimm in
          the bar, and, like Missions 11 and 14, you can make use of the tables
          and chairs around you. Use lower body grapples and SPA moves to take
          down Grimm. He will usually go for SPA combo moves, so watch out for
          them. Wear down his lower body for easier knockdowns. 
    
        Mission 23: Avenging the Honor
    
        Opponent(s): Zach Parker
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Bust up Zach's lower body.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission is easy to finish. Perform sweep kicks (Down+Circle) to
          weaken his lower body and mix those up with lower body grapples. Zach
          will be busted up in no time at all.
    
        Mission 24: Helping Hands
    
        Opponent(s): Kadonashi and Tong Yoon Bulsook
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Just like Mission 21: World-Ranked Boxer, this mission pits you against
          two "boss-type" characters at the same time. Kadonashi and Tong Yoon
          together make a devastatingly powerful team. However, because you are
          in a warehouse for this mission, throw them at the shelves and walls
          and use a hit-and-run tactic (make use of that space for running!).
          Once you take down either opponent, fight the other like you would in
          a mission that you took that opponent one-on-one.
    
        Mission 25: Outnumbered
    
        Opponent(s): Busta, Em Cee, Nas-Tiii, Pain Killah, and Spider
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission is the other five-on-one mission of the Story Mode.
          Approach this mission exactly how you did for Mission 17: Crashing
          the Party. These opponents are slightly weaker than the set of foes
          you get for Mission 17 (probably similar or weaker).
    
        Mission 26: Fist to Fist
    
        Opponent(s): Jake Hudson
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Jake down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This is like Mission 11: The Proof. You don't get to fight in the
          bar, however. Instead, you fight in a parking lot, so there aren't
          tables or chairs to take advantage of. Use deflections and SPA moves
          to take Jake down. Don't use the juggling combo attacks too often.
          After all, Jake (being that he is a wrestler) has tremendous power
          in grappling and throwing opponents.
    
        Mission 27: The Blitz
    
        Opponent(s): Glen Kluger, Rod, Seth, and Torque
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take everyone down. 
    
        Strategy:
    
        - All of Hell's Legion are your opponents for this mission. In order
          to beat this one, you will want to take out Rod, Torque, Seth, and
          Glen, in that order (it happens to be an order of low to high-tier).
          Keep yourself out of being surrounded and this mission should not
          give you any problems. Use the neutral SPA move often to keep from
          being teamed up on.
    
        Mission 28: Who's Your Daddy?
    
        Opponent(s): Glen Kluger
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Glen down. 
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Mission 28 is the first mission that has the opponent wielding a
          weapon. In this case, Glen gets a crowbar (I think). Use your
          Up SPA move to knock the crowbar out of his hand and then you can
          deal with him as you would normally. Try and get the crowbar. If
          you can, use it to shut him up quickly.
    
        Mission 29: Small Fry
    
        Opponent(s): Busta, Pain Killah, and Spider
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission is relatively simple. You've seen these guys before and
          you know how they fight, so take them down as you would in other
          missions involving these guys. More of a practice run than a mission.
    
        Mission 30: Showdown
    
        Opponent(s): Dwayne Davis
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Dwayne down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Here is the end of Chapter 1. You finally get to fight the leader of
          the Zaps. Dwayne seems rather adept at deflecting attacks, so fight
          carefully and only use your SPA moves when you know they will connect
          with Dwayne. He does an unbelievable amount of damage with his SPA
          combo moves, so try to be wary of them and dodge them when they come
          out. Use everything that you have learned up to this point in this
          mission. Overall, Dwayne is not that difficult to beat down.
    
        Mission 31: Chaos
    
        Opponent(s): DR-88, FK-71, and GD-05
    
        Description: (Partner: Shun Ying Lee)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission is a good introduction to the sets of opponents that you
          will be seeing quite often in other missions. These foes, part of the
          Outlaws, are not too difficult to take down. Watch for their neutral
          SPA moves. It is the move that looks like Zangief's (from Street
          Fighter) Double Lariat and it hurts quite a bit if you are in close.
          Keep away from these guys when they have a high enough SPA Gauge built
          up. Use your own SPA moves to cancel their attacks. Overall, not a 
          very difficult mission.
    
        Mission 32: Dual Strike
    
        Opponent(s): Jack Bain and Ray Cooper
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Remember the introduction to Urban Reign? They you'll be happy to know
          (somewhat) that these guys are responsible for capturing KG in the first
          place. Since you get to use a partner for this mission (and the fact that
          there are only two opponents here helps a lot), you will find that they
          are more annoying than difficult. Watch for Bain especially. He seems to
          deflect grapples and strikes rather often. Cooper is not as difficult to
          deal with. Use Double Team attacks with your partner to shut them down
          quickly. Use juggling combo attacks sparingly (or when you get a good
          opportunity to use them).
    
        Mission 33: The Mob
    
        Opponent(s): Miguel Estevez, Ramon Perez, Jose Ramirez, and GD-05
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Here we go again. The Outsiders are back with a little help. Still, you
          should not have any problems (especially considering the number of times
          that you have faced the Outsiders in the past missions). Take down Miguel
          quickly and terminate the remaining opponents one by one with Double Team
          attacks and SPA moves. Pretty much reminiscent of other missions with
          the OUtsiders.
    
        Mission 34: The Agitator
    
        Opponent(s): Jack Bain, Nas-Tiii, Real Deal, and Ty
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take Bain down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission should be one that is quickly finished. Avoid all the Zaps. 
          Go straight for Bain and hit him with everything at your disposal. He is
          pretty efficient at deflections, but don't let that stop you from using
          everything you have. Try to deflect his strikes and go for grapples. Use
          your SPA moves in response to his to cancel them. Bain should go down in
          a matter of seconds.
    
        Mission 35: The Hatchet Man
    
        Opponent(s): Chris Bowman, DR-88, and PT-22
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - A good tip for approaching this mission is knowing who your opponent is.
          Seeing that this is the first mission that pits you against Chris, you'll
          want to know what he is capable of. To be specific, Chris is a character
          using the Capoeira style. If you've played Tekken at all, you will find
          his style similar to Eddy and Christie (of Tekken 3, 4, and 5). Chris
          usually targets the lower body region of opponents, so having a partner
          with high lower body endurance helps in this mission. Take Tong Yoon as a
          partner. This will make dealing with all opponents much easier. Go for
          the Outlaws first, and take down Chris last. Get used to deflecting lower
          body strikes and grapples (Chris can and will use these often). Save your
          SPA moves for countering the ones that Chris will throw at you. After
          beating this mission, try to keep these strategies for taking on Chris
          fresh in your mind. This is not the last time you will see him.
    
        Mission 36: Despicable Ally
    
        Opponent(s): BK, Booma, and Jack Bain
    
        Description: (Partner: Glen Kluger)
    
        - Take the enemy down while protecting Glen.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Glen's Status Effect SPA will help you deal with opponents more easily.
          While enemies try to make Glen stagger, in vain, you can attack all of
          them from behind with your grapples and Left/Right SPA move (the 
          multi-hit combo). Again, you've seen BK and Booma fight already, so
          use that to your advantage when it comes to anticipating what attacks
          to watch out for. Take Bain down as you would in other missions.
    
        Mission 37: The Deal
    
        Opponent(s): Em Cee, Nas-Tiii, Real Deal, and Ty
    
        Description: (Partner: Jake Hudson)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - The Zaps will prove no match for you and Jake. Their stats are much more
          inferior to your's and Jake's, so take advantage of this stat difference.
          Double Team attacks while help take down these guys quickly. Use your
          SPA moves frequently, and watch for the occasional deflection that any
          one of these guys will pull out. If you're not careful, all four of them
          will capitalize on your one missed move (this will result in quite a bit
          of damage, obviously).
    
        Mission 38: The Derelict
    
        Opponent(s): FK-71, GD-05, and PT-22
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take the enemy down within the Time Limit.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission is just like Mission 31: Chaos. The only difference is one
          opponent. You get to fight PT-22 instead of DR-88. Big deal. They all
          fight in a similar fashion, so approach this mission in a similar
          fashion to Mission 31.
    
        Mission 39: The Grudge
    
        Opponent(s): Dae-Suk Park
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take Park down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission is a relatively difficult one. What you get is an opponent
          with the Concentration Up Status Effect SPA. He will always use it at
          the beginning of the match, so try to stay in a defensive position until
          it wears off. Park has some pretty damaging juggling combo attacks that
          he can and will use when given the opportunity. Be patient and what for
          the appropriate time to attack Park. Rushing into this fight will
          usually end (for you) in failure.
    
        Mission 40: Dead Run
    
        Opponent(s): Dillan Anderson, Em Cee, Jack Bain, and Nas-Tiii
    
        Description: (Partner: Dwayne Davis)
    
        - Take the enemy down while protecting Dwayne.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - You start this mission at the other end of the street while Dwayne is
          already in a brawl with members of the Zaps and Shadow Platoon. Run to
          him and perform a dash attack to knock surrounding enemies off of
          Dwayne. Stick close to Dwayne and try to utilize Double Team attacks
          when possible. Use your SPA moves frequently and never try to juggle
          your opponent. With this many opponents, your attacks are likely to get
          cancelled about 90% of the time. Capitalize on missed attacks of your
          foes and use grapples (running grapples for getting away from the crowd
          for a while) when you can. This is nothing compared to some of the
          later missions that require you to protect a partner.
    
        Mission 41: Traitor
    
        Opponent(s): BK, Bones, Booma, and Grave Digga'
    
        Description: (Partner: Grimm)
    
        - Take the enemy down while protecting Grimm.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission is, more or less, another Mission 19: Chinatown Welcome.
          Approach this mission with the same strategy as before and you'll be on
          to the next mission in no time at all.
    
        Mission 42: Lucky Error
    
        Opponent(s): GD-05, Miguel Estevez, and PT-22
    
        Description: (Partner: Tong Yoon Bulsook)
    
        - Take the enemy down while protecting Tong Yoon.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - You get Tong Yoon as your partner, and you have to protect him. Stick
          close to him and use Double Team attacks whenever possible. Most
          missions that give you any partner to protect are rather easy to
          finish, because you can take advantage of Double Team attacks against
          your opponents.
    
        Mission 43: Surrounded
    
        Opponent(s): Dillan Anderson, Jack Bain, Ray Cooper, and Samuel Taylor
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission is a lot more difficult, especially because you get no
          partner to help you out. If you didn't already notice, you get to
          face all of the Shadow Platoon, minus their leader, McKinzie.
          Because they are prone to deflecting many of your attacks, tread
          softly in this mission. Work on each opponent separately to even the
          odds. Never try grapples or juggling combo attacks. They are likely
          to end in utter failure.
    
        Mission 44: Housecleaning
    
        Opponent(s): Emilio Sanchez, Jose Ramirez, and Miguel Estevez
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Again, you have to face the Outsiders. Luckily their end is near.
          Use the same tactic for beating these guys down and be careful of
          deflections. You get a partner to use, so make use of those Double
          Team attacks for a fast finish to this mission.
    
        Mission 45: The Duel
    
        Opponent(s): Chris Bowman, DR-88, FK-71, and PT-22
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take Chris down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission is kind of like Mission 35: Hatchet Man, except your only
          objective is to get rid of Chris this time. The Outlaws standing by him
          won't attack you unless you happen to get near them or accidentally hit
          them. Take the fight to the other end of the subway, and use deflections
          and dodging in excess. Chris has some nasty juggling combo attacks that
          will inflict painful amounts of damage if you're not careful. Still, 
          one-on-one with Chris is a lot easier than it seems as you can focus on
          him alone as opposed to Chris and some Outlaws.
    
        Mission 46: Conciliation
    
        Opponent(s): DR-88 and PT-22
    
        Description: (Partner: Chris Bowman)
    
        - Take the enemy down while protecting Chris.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - How the mighty have fallen... not really. Chris is now in hot water for
          getting beaten by you, and, so, the Outlaws have decided to beat him as
          punishment for losing. There are only two opponents here, so this
          mission should be a breeze, especially with Chris as your partner.
          Unfortunately, Chris fights less furiously (it seems) when he is your
          partner as opposed to being your opponent.
    
        Mission 47: Setting an Example
    
        Opponent(s): Jack Bain, Jose Ramirez, Miguel Estevez, and Ramon Perez
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Bust up Bain's lower body.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission is a real pain in the a**.  Not only do you have to NOT
          take down Bain and ONLY injure his lower body, but you have to do all
          of this among three other opponents. Even though you have a partner,
          this mission will still prove to be some trouble for the most
          experienced players. Try to get your partner to take on Jose, Miguel,
          and Ramon by him/herself (use Shun Ying Lee due to her Concentration
          Up SPA) and go for Bain's lower body. Use lower body grapples
          constantly to finish the job quickly (or before one of the Outsiders
          starts to annoy you with back strikes and/or grapples). A quick finish
          is the way to go for ending Mission 47.
    
        Mission 48: Tooth for a Tooth
    
        Opponent(s): Ray Cooper, Real Deal, and Samuel Taylor
    
        Description: (Partner: Kadonashi)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Kadonashi tags along for this mission. He tends to fight fiercely when
          it comes to his students being beaten down, so expect him to take out
          one or two (if you're lucky) opponents before you take even one down.
          Take advantage of his "Fury" by using those Double Team attacks when
          you can. Cooper, Real Deal, and Taylor will be down and out in no time.
    
        Mission 49: The Lost Boy
    
        Opponent(s): Dillan Anderson
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Anderson down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - A one-on-one mission with... a lowly member of the Shadow Platoon!? Yep,
          you get to give Anderson a beatdown. Surprisingly, however, Anderson
          seems to be a lot more proficient at deflecting attacks, so be cautious
          of his "new" abilities. Still, you can gain some practice from taking
          down Anderson. Try for a perfect match by using deflections and
          attacking only when you have a clear opportunity.
    
        Mission 50: The Scoundrel
    
        Opponent(s): Alex Steiner
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Alex down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This is the first mission to pit you against Alex. He gets a crowbar for
          this fight and he is also very proficient at deflecting attacks.
          In order to beat him, you will want to get that crowbar out of his
          hands. Use the Up SPA move (his "charge" punch) to knock the crowbar
          clear from his hands. Then, take him on like you would against Jake
          (they fight similarly). Be mindful of his superior stats and abilities,
          however. Alex is another opponent that you will see in future missions.
    
        Mission 51: Close Combat
    
        Opponent(s): DR-88, GD-05, and PT-22
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission is the first mission that has opponents starting to use
          all types of weapons against you. Still, it is just the Outlaws, so
          approach this mission with the same strategies as Mission 31, and you
          will have this one finished quickly.
    
        Mission 52: Dependable Presence
    
        Opponent(s): Nas-Tiii, Real Deal, and Ty
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Finishing this mission is still pretty easy. Though they get weapons,
          the Zaps are still pretty predictable in terms of attacking patterns.
          You can even approach this mission like you would for the earlier
          missions (1-30).
    
        Mission 53: Holed Up
    
        Opponent(s): Alex Steiner and Dae-Suk Park
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Mission 53 is not as hard as one would expect, considering the foes
          that you are dealt this time around. You get to face Alex and Park
          in the same mission, but you also get a partner. Use Shun Ying Lee
          to keep Park at bay (he will use his Status Effect SPA at some
          point in the mission, so watch out). Deal with Alex first and try
          to corner Park (if you have a partner intact after beating Alex).
          You fight this mission in the bar, so use the environment to your
          advantage as well.
    
        Mission 54: Extermination
    
        Opponent(s): BK, Bones, and Grave Digga'
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Again, this mission is like Mission 19 and 41. Use the same exact tactic
          for those missions to finish this mission and leave it at that.
    
        Mission 55: Mop-up
    
        Opponent(s): GD-05
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take GD-05 down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - GD-05 gets a 4 x 4 for this mission. Big deal. He is rather inferior
          so beat him down like you would against any other Outlaw. Some of these
          missions are just too easy...
    
        Mission 56: Soldiers
    
        Opponent(s): Dillan Anderson, Ray Cooper, and Samuel Taylor
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Three of the five members of the Shadow Platoon to deal with this time.
          The later missions are pretty much reflections of earlier missions 
          involving these guys, so approach this mission in the same manner as all
          other missions involving the Shadow Platoon.
    
        Mission 57: Precious Time
    
        Opponent(s): Em Cee, Real Deal, and Ty
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take the enemy down within the Time Limit.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - The Time Limit never has been nor will it ever be a factor for the Story
          Mode. The Zaps are just too inferior in fighting ability to match up to
          Brad Hawk and any of his partners. Take them down fast with any moves.
    
        Mission 58: Object of Ire
    
        Opponent(s): Dae-Suk Park
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Park down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Here is a real tough mission. Though one-on-one, Park has Concentration
          Up Status Effect SPA, which can spell trouble for you. Stay away and
          deflect incoming strikes and other grapples until his Status Effect
          SPA wears off. Try for strikes and grapples only when he is stunned (and
          not in Concentration Up state). This mission may take a while, but it's
          better than getting taken down multiple times yourself.
    
        Mission 59: Wrath
    
        Opponent(s): Miguel Estevez
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take Miguel down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - For some reason, Miguel is still proficient at deflecting all strikes or
          grapples. Still, because you have a partner, the mission should be easy.
          Double Team Miguel whenever possible to eliminate him quickly.
    
        Mission 60: Truce
    
        Opponent(s): FK-71, Jack Bain, and PT-22
    
        Description: (Partner: Dae-Suk Park)
    
        - Take the enemy down while protecting Park.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Here is where Park changes sides. Now, he fights to help you out. The
          Outlaws and Bain are no match for you and Park. Simply Double Team Bain.
          Then, deal with the Outlaws as you normally would in other
          missions. Not a big deal in terms of difficulty.
    
        Mission 61: Punishment
    
        Opponent(s): BK, Booma, and Grave Digga'
    
        Description: (Partner: Grimm)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Wow. Namco decided to give the players multiples cracks at taking down
          Westside Gym Boxers. This mission, again for the fourth time, is like 
          Missions 19, 41, and 54. Use those tactics and beat them down, again.
    
        Mission 62: The End of the Outsiders
    
        Opponent(s): Emilio Sanchez, Jose Ramirez, and Ramon Perez
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - You finally get to eliminate the Outsiders once and for all. No Miguel
          in this mission, because you already took him out in Mission 59: Wrath.
          Play this mission like you norally would and the Outsiders will finally
          be down and out, permanently.
    
        Mission 63: Mr. Popularity
    
        Opponent(s): Alex Steiner
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Alex down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This is the last mission that pits you against Alex alone. Take him out
          like you did in Mission 50: The Scoundrel. He won't try to attack you
          again after this mission (good thing too because Alex can be tough to
          take down sometimes).
    
        Mission 64: Lethal Weapon
    
        Opponent(s): FK-71, GD-05, and PT-22
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Exactly like Mission 51: Close Combat. Approach this mission in the same
          manner as the other missions involving the Outlaws. This is getting to
          be a bit repetitive, isn't it?
    
        Mission 65: Nowhere to Go
    
        Opponent(s): Em Cee, Nas-Tiii, Real Deal, and Ty
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Bust up their upper bodies.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Use the Left/Right SPA move all over the place for this mission. Attack
          their upper bodies with juggling combo attacks and do not hesitate to
          use running grapples when you have the chance. You should be able to
          bust up all of their upper bodies rather fast if you keep to an all-out
          offensive strategy. Don't give them any chances to attack for the win.
    
        Mission 66: Bleak Future
    
        Opponent(s): Dillan Anderson, Jack Bain, and Ray Cooper
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy: *The following is a strategy from Beerky, a GameFAQs member.
                   Note that this strategy is for getting an S rank on Free Mode
                   but the fighting strategies still apply.
    
        -I got an S on it with Brad & Chris on Very Hard; I beat it in 51 seconds.
         Now this one was hard, but I *think* the only possible way to get an S
         is to put it on Very Hard. First, run at them and do the flying kick 
         attack to the blonde guy with the bottle.  If you can, juggle him, some.
         Ok, now this part is the most critical, but the hardest.  You will have
         to focus only on him, to build your combo. You cannot take any damage
         until at least he is KO'ed, so you will need to do your neutral SPA if
         anyone tries to attack you from the back.  Also, when you're punching
         combos, if you do more than 2 sets, they will most likely try to do a
         neutral SPA to you, so either counter with a neutral SPA or just do a set
         or 2 of punches and mix it up with a grapple.
    
        Mission 67: Handle with Care
    
        Opponent(s): DR-88, Dillan Anderson, and Samuel Taylor
    
        Description: (Partner: Alex Steiner)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Alex finally helps you out in this mission. You must have faced all of
          the Outlaws and Shadow Platoon countless times, so I won't tell you how
          to approach this mission. Basically, it's the same as the earlier ones.
    
        Mission 68: Sneak Attack
    
        Opponent(s): Napalm 99
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Napalm 99 down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Now here's a mission that needs a direct strategy. For this fight, your
          opponent is the leader (finally) of the Outlaws, Napalm 99. At the 
          beginning of the fight, he will probably use his Status Effect SPA.
          He glows purple when he uses it. This state, for Napalm 99, gives him
          the Super Armor Status Effect, the Power-Up Status Effect, and, as if
          that wasn't enough already, it recovers some of his Health Gauge. Since
          you are in an open street, run like hell to keep away from Napalm 99
          (at least until it wears off). After it wears off, run to him and dash
          attack his lower body (the slide kick) and follow up with some striking
          combo attacks. Once he gets up, be ready to dodge or deflect his strikes
          and/or grapples. When given the opportunity, use juggling combo attacks
          to deal the most damage to Napalm 99. Repeat the process whenever he
          uses his Status Effect SPA move and he will go down eventually. Try to
          keep this strategy fresh in your mind. You WILL face a souped-up version
          of this mission later on.
    
        Mission 69: Toe-to-Toe for Glory
    
        Opponent(s): Douglas McKinzie
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take McKinzie down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Another mission that requires a direct strategy. The leader of the
          Shadow Platoon uses a Hunter Knife for this fight, and he is very 
          proficient at its uses. Most often, McKinzie will use his Status Effect
          SPA move to increase the force of all of his attacks. Be wary of his
          knife combo attacks. They can destroy any of your body regions very
          quickly and easily, if you give him the chance. Use deflections and
          dodging often, and never try for juggling combo attacks. McKinzie is
          also proficient at deflecting and dodging, so you won't have many
          opportunities to deal large amounts of damage to McKinzie at any one
          point in the mission. Be patient with this mission. Unlike Napalm 99,
          McKinzie doesn't fall for being juggled by strikes very often.
    
        Mission 70: Finishing Touches
    
        Opponent(s): Napalm 99 and Douglas McKinzie
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - The final mission of this chapter pits you against the opponents of
          your last two missions: Napalm 99 and Douglas McKinzie. Use both of
          the above-stated strategies at your discretion. Because they are in
          a team together, they are considerably harder to take down. Try to 
          get rid of Napalm 99 first. McKinzie is much easier to take down if
          you have a partner to help you do the job. Bring a partner with a
          Status Effect SPA of either Concentration Up or Super Armor for the
          easiest win to this difficult mission.
    
        Mission 71: A New Foe
    
        Opponent(s): Masa, Riki, and Yan Jun
    
        Description: (Partner: Shun Ying Lee)
    
        - Take the enemy down while protecting Shun Ying.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - The chinese men entering Ragtown, Green Harbor, are members of the
          gangs known as the Tin-Jiao and the Mushin-Kai. Get acquainted with
          your new opponents because, like the Outlaws and Shadow Platoon, you
          see them a lot throughout many missions. Eliminate them by using
          Double Team attacks and SPA moves. These guys are more proficient at
          deflecting and dodging than all other opponents that you have faced
          thus far.
    
        Mission 72: Killers
    
        Opponent(s): Hiro, Masa, and Ryuji
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - You get to take on some members of the Mushin-Kai here. What is their
          specialty? Using samurai swords, of course. Yeah, I know. Those guys
          are very cheap when they get to use samurai swords. Still, they are
          not too terrible. Use the dash attack to the lower body (the slide
          kick) against all of them and follow up with striking combo attacks.
          Also, use the Up SPA move to knock those swords out of their hands.
          If you can get that far, deal with them as you did in the latter 
          mission.
    
        Mission 73: Vicious Steel
    
        Opponent(s): Sha Ying Lai, Yan Jun Kwan, and Ye Wei Cheng
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - These three are part of the Tin-Jiao. They specialize in Kung Fu
          martial arts, so expect a tougher fight than against the Mushin-Kai.
          For the greatest ease, use the above-stated strategy for knocking
          their weapons out of their hands. The Tin-Jiao use the Chinese
          Saber as their weapon of choice, and they are very proficient at 
          using it to disarm opponents quickly. Take that advantage away for
          a slightly easier fight. Having a partner really helps out in this
          particular mission. Go for Double Team attacks, if anything.
    
        Mission 74: Tit-for-Tat
    
        Opponent(s): Jack Bain, Ray Cooper, Riki, and Samuel Taylor
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - The Shadow Platoon along with one member of the Mushin-Kai does
          not make for a tough mission. Deal with the Shadow Platoon
          accordingly (I'm sure their attack patterns are very familiar to
          you by now). Riki is best dealt with alongside a partner, but he
          is easy enough to beat through any means. Try Up SPA moves and
          grapple his lower body for the best results.
    
        Mission 75: Storming In
    
        Opponent(s): FK-71, GD-05, Masa, and PT-22
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
        
        - Take Masa down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Another mediocre gang with one member of the Mushin-Kai. This
          mission should actually be easier than the latter mission, so 
          you can use any strategy you like. You'll find, obviously, that
          the Outlaws are pretty much the same as they always have been.
          Get used to fighting members of the Mushin-Kai, however.
    
        Mission 76: The Dogs
    
        Opponent(s): Dillan Anderson, Douglas McKinzie, and Samuel Taylor
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take the enemy down while protecting your partner.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Traditional Shadow Platoon fight, except McKinzie tags along
          this time around. Stick close to your partner and use Double
          Team attacks on McKinzie (a strategy similar to that of Mission
          70: Finishing Touches). Take down Anderson and Taylor in the
          manner that you would normally.
    
        Mission 77: Collusion
    
        Opponent(s): Sha Ying Lai and Yan Jun Kwan
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take the enemy down while protecting your partner.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Bring a tough partner (like Glen or Park) and you shouldn't have
          any worries about protecting your partner. Get rid of Sha Ying
          Lai quickly and deal with Yan Jun Kwan with your partner. He'll
          go down with relative ease.
    
        Mission 78: The Monster
    
        Opponent(s): Golem
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take Golem down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission is the first of three (yes, three in total) fights
          that pits you and a partner (thankfully) against Golem, the
          personal bodyguard of the leader of the Tin-Jiao. Since these
          missions pit you against Golem (and only Golem), you at least
          have the one-on-one "format" going for you. He'll start the fight
          in a similar manner as Napalm 99 in Mission 68: Sneak Attack.
          Leave Golem up to your partner so as to distract Golem. Go for
          a lower body grapple from behind Golem to deal some decent damage.
          His lowest stat is his Lower Body Endurance, so exploit that dis-
          advantage to the fullest. Double Team attacks also work really
          well against Golm, so try for these whenever you have the chance.
          Don't get used to this strategy, however. This is the first and
          ONLY mission that you get to fight Golem (by himself) with a 
          partner.
    
        Mission 79: Back in Town
    
        Opponent(s): Lin Fong Lee, Sha Ying Lai, Yan Jun Kwan, and Ye Wei Cheng
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take Lin Fong's men down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - The leader of the Tin-Jiao finally makes his appearance. It is a man
          named Lin Fong Lee, and he is Shun Ying Lee's younger brother, if you
          haven't figured it out already. Take down Lin Fong's men (like the
          description says) and leave the fight at that. There is no need to 
          take on Lin Fong just yet. You'll only make this mission harder to
          finish than it needs to be.
    
        Mission 80: Watchdogs
    
        Opponent(s): DR-88, GD-05, and Napalm 99
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take the enemy down within the Time Limit.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission is kind of like Mission 76: The Dogs (by name, anyway).
          You get to deal with two Outlaws and their leader. Use any Napalm
          99 strategy from Mission 68 or 70. Clean up the remnants of any
          Outlaws still standing. 
    
        Mission 81: City Under Siege
    
        Opponent(s): Douglas McKinzie and Riki
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Here is a rather easy mission. Take down McKinzie AFTER beating down
          Riki. Both will have their weapons (the Hunter Knife and the Samurai
          Sword, respectively), so knock those out of their hands. Only two
          opponents here, so having a partner makes this mission an even fight.
    
        Mission 82: Fists of Iron
    
        Opponent(s): Sha Ying Lai, Yan Jun Kwan, and Ye Wei Cheng
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Another version of Mission 73: Vicious Steel. Use a similar strategy
          as Mission 73's, and be wary of their saber combo attacks. Knocking
          those weapons out of their hands should be the first thing on your
          agenda for this mission and any others reminiscent of Mission 82.
    
        Mission 83: Limbering Up
    
        Opponent(s): Hiro, Riki, and Ryuji
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - More Mushin-Kai to take down. They all get their swords, so be 
          careful, just as you were in the latter mission. Their swords are
          swung noticeably slower than the Tin-Jiao's sabers, so use their
          sluggishness to your advantage. They DO hurt more (when hit, of
          course) than the Chinese Sabers, so dodge their swings as best as
          you can. Again, knock the swords away and lay waste to these
          three with Double Team attacks and SPA moves.
    
        Mission 84: Revenge
    
        Opponent(s): Napalm 99 and Sha Ying Lai
    
        Description: (Partner: Chris Bowman)
    
        - Take the enemy down while protecting Chris.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This chapter is full of altered versions of earlier missions.
          Mission 84 is much like Mission 81: City Under Siege, so you may
          take down these two in a similar manner as Mission 81. Try the
          Napalm 99 strategy for Mission 68: Sneak Attack in order to get
          rid of Napalm 99. Sha Ying Lai will not be able to hang against
          the likes of Brad Hawk and any one of his ten different partners.
    
        Mission 85: Pursuit
    
        Opponent(s): Lin Fong Lee
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Lin Fong down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Yet another mission that cries out for a direct strategy. He will,
          like Napalm 99, McKinzie, and Golem, start the fight out by using
          his Status Effect SPA move. It gives him the Concentration Up
          Effect, so try to stick to deflecting and dodging his attacks until
          it wears off. When it wears off, you may try to mix your attacks up
          with some grapples, but he is likely to deflect most of your attacks.
          Deflecting and grappling his upper or lower body as a follow-up move
          is a good tactic to keep in mind for this fight. From what I have
          heard on the GameFAQs Message Boards for Urban Reign, Lin Fong Lee
          is pretty easy to beat, and I totally agree that he is overrated, in
          terms of difficulty. Still, try to be wary of his abilities. He may
          be overrated, but he is definitely worthy of his skills as a fighter.
    
        Mission 86: Return of the Monster
    
        Opponent(s): Golem
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Golem down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This is the second mission that pits you against Golem (by himself),
          only this time, you get no partner. He also has an axe (though it's
          rather small for him. Perhaps a large battle axe would be more
          appropriate?). Since he will use his Status Effect SPA, avoid him
          until it wears off. Then you may proceed by knocking the axe from
          his hands. Pick it up and use it on him constantly. He will probably
          dodge some of your swings, but he is not too proficient at dodging or
          deflecting to begin with. The axe will deal the majority of your
          damage against Golem. If you don't want to (or can't) get the axe to
          use on Golem, you can always use lower body grapples to weaken Golem.
          This will make putting down this behemoth much easier.
    
        Mission 87: Capture
    
        Opponent(s): Yan Jun Kwan
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Bust up Yan Jun's lower body.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - An overly easy mission to say the least. Use lower body strikes (and
          not too many grapples) to bust up his lower body quickly. He'll be
          on the ground in no time. I happened to finish this mission in under
          30 seconds, actually...
    
        Mission 88: Grilling
    
        Opponent(s): Dillan Anderson, Sha Ying Lai, and Ye Wei Cheng
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Another fight in Shun Ying's restaurant. Approach this mission like
          you did on Mission 71: A New Foe. No surprises here, so use any
          strategies that you have been implementing all along in other
          related missions for the finish.
    
        Mission 89: An Unexpected Call
    
        Opponent(s): Hiro, Jack Bain, Masa, and Ryuji
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This is where the game, in many players' opinions, gets very
          difficult. You have no partner to help you out for many of the
          following missions. To top it all off, all of the Mushin-Kai 
          involved in this mission (in addition to Bain) have their respective
          weapons. Start the fight by attacking Bain to your right. Knock him
          into the corner of the street and pound away at him until he goes
          down. Use your Neutral SPA move to keep the Mushin-Kai from attacking
          you from behind. Then, go for any of the Mushin-Kai. As always, knock
          their weapons away from their hands for more ease in finishing the
          mission. It is not uncommon for players to retry this mission several
          times before finally finishing it. I have had to retry this one myself
          quite a few times before finally finishing it.
    
        Mission 90: The Trap
    
        Opponent(s): Sha Ying Lai, Yan Jun Kwan, and Ye Wei Cheng
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Again, no partner here. Use your Up SPA move often to deal considerable
          damage to these three, and also to knock away their weapons. Go for Ye
          Wei Cheng first. After taking him down, take his Chinese Saber and use
          it on Yan Jun Kwan. Yan Jun Kwan's knife attacks come out faster than
          the saber swings, but if you time it right, the saber will strike Yan
          Jun Kwan before you get hit. Keep it up to make him drop his Butterfly
          Knife. Take down Sha Ying Lai last with any weapon or strategy. Since
          he'll probably be alone at this point in the mission, Sha Ying Lai will
          be rather easy to eliminate.
    
        Mission 91: The Monster Released
    
        Opponent(s): Golem
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Golem down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - The third Golem mission of the three. You know how I said keep Mission
          68: Sneak Attack's strategy fresh in your mind? Now is the time to use
          that strategy (to some degree). You fight Golem in the exact same place
          as you did against Napalm 99 in Mission 68: Sneak Attack. Remember to
          use the axe, if you can get it, and keep away from him when he is in his
          Super Armor state. Being that this is the third time facing Golem one on
          one, his fighting style should be one that you are familiar with by now.
    
        Mission 92: The Escape
    
        Opponent(s): Hiro, Masa, Riki, and Ye Wei Cheng
    
        Description: (Partner: Shun Ying Lee)
    
        - Take the enemy down while protecting Shun Ying.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This mission is another pain in the a**. You must protect Shun Ying Lee
          while taking down the four opponents given. To start the mission, run
          and dash attack the lower body of the two Mushin-Kai surrounding Shun
          Ying. Then, stay near her for the remainder of the mission. Use Double
          Team attacks to eliminate each opponent, one by one. The only difficulty
          with this mission, again, is keeping Shun Ying Lee alive. Her stats
          (defense-wise) are very low for a four-star character. Once you eliminate
          some of the foes around her, your fight becomes that much easier.
    
        Mission 93: Little Brother
    
        Opponent(s): Golem and Lin Fong Lee
    
        Description: (Partner: Shun Ying Lee)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This is a much tougher mission than most of the other ones that you have
          faced thus far. To win this fight, you will want to get rid of Golem
          first. Since this is going to be your fourth encounter with the behemoth,
          use the same strategies for defeating Golem. In short, use the axe to cut
          him down. Then, help Shun Ying Lee shut her little brother down for good.
          Try to get Lin Fong's saber if he drops it. It deals out a good amount of
          damage. NEVER get trapped with Lin Fong and Golem alone. Re-start the
          mission if this happens. You are likely to get your a** handed to you in
          this situation.
    
        Mission 94: Enemy Stronghold
    
        Opponent(s): Douglas McKinzie, DR-88, and PT-22
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - At this point, there is no real reason to give any new strategy against
          these guys. You've been fighting all of them since the beginning of
          Chapter 2 (Mission 31: Chaos). Use any of the earlier-stated strategies
          to your discretion. You should be familiar with every opponent (except
          for two) by now.
    
        Mission 95: Forcing Through
    
        Opponent(s): Ray Cooper, Samuel Taylor, and Ye Wei Cheng
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Again, see Mission 94 for strategy suggestions. If you are at a loss when
          it comes to what to do against these guys, go for SPA moves and Double
          Team attacks. Take their weapons, if you can, and put them down hard.
    
        Mission 96: Incursion
    
        Opponent(s): Sha Ying Lai, Yan Jun Kwan, and Ye Wei Cheng
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - Approach this mission with strategies similar to those of Missions 73
          (Vicious Steel), 82 (Fists of Iron), and 90 (The Trap). Use their
          weapons, if you can, again, and go for Double Team attacks, as always.
          That's what you're partner (partially) is there for!! This is the last 
          mission that pits you against the Lin Fong's Tin Jiao.
    
        Mission 97: Disemboweling
    
        Opponent(s): Hiro, Masa, Riki, and Ryuji
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - The last mission that pits you against the Mushin-Kai is not that easy
          to finish. Take down each opponent one by one and never leave your back
          open to attack without any SPA move ready to be performed. They get
          their trademark Katanas again, so you must be careful not to get hit in
          excess. Try to get their swords and cut them down for the easiest win.
          Make sure to bring along a partner with the Concentration Up Status
          Effect or Super Armor Status Effect to make the mission even easier.
    
        Mission 98: Monster Slayer
    
        Opponent(s): Golem and Napalm 99
    
        Description: (Partner Allowed)
    
        - Take everyone down.
    
        Strategy: *The following is a strategy from Beerky, a GameFAQs member.
                   Note that this strategy is for getting an S rank on Free Mode
                   but the fighting strategies still apply.
    
        -"I got an S on with Brad and McKenzie on Easy in 56 seconds. There are a
          lot of missions you can get an S on the Easy level, but you REALLY need
          to get Max combo or as close to as humanly possible.  Another important
          trick is that you need to avoid the big badass that is powered-up. They
          seem to stagger that, like 1 will be powered-up while the other is 
          getting pummeled.  Also, utilize slide attacks on this one, it helps to
          start off a combo, and you can do a lot of stuff after you've popped
          them up (including that super combo SPA of Brad's, because they can't
          counter with their SPA in air)."
    
        - One other thing to note is that, like other missions with Golem, he'll
          use his Combination Status Effect SPA (Power Up / Super Armor). Try to
          have your partner (you DID bring one along, didn't you?) take both of
          them on, until Golem's Status Effect SPA wears off. Alternatively, you
          could try to deflect and dodge his strikes and grapples. However, if
          you mess up, you will take heavy damage. The worst-case scenario would
          be both Napalm 99 and Golem using their Status Effect SPAs at the same
          time (or at a simiilar time). IF YOU THINK THIS MISSION IS AN EASY ONE,
          try it WITHOUT any partner. My twin brother beat this mission with
          Douglas McKinzie (no MAX stats) on VERY HARD (in about 43 seconds)!!
    
    
        Mission 99: Closing In
    
        Opponent(s): Shinkai
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Shinkai down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - This IS the last boss of the game, in my opinion. You'll see why I say
          this when you get to Mission 100. Anyway, Shinkai, the leader of the
          Mushin-Kai, is your opponent for this fight. He uses his own custom
          Katana for this fight. DON'T EVEN TRY TO GET HIS WEAPON. For some reason,
          it is very difficult to get Shinkai to drop his Katana. Be mindful of all
          his Katana attacks. Hiro, Masa, Riki, and Ryuji couldn't perform all of
          the highly damaging sword attacks that Shinkai performs. His SPA Katana
          moves all deal out nearly 50% damage to your Health Gauge. Furthermore,
          those attacks destroy body regions in an instant. Part of the reason for
          this is the fact that he always uses his Power Up Status Effect SPA at
          the beginning of the match. Stay in a defensive position and deflect his
          attacks. ONLY go for grapples and/or strikes when you have the chance.
          His regular SPA attacks hurt as well, and he tends to save his SPA until
          he is under attack. In short, he is capable of countering your own SPA
          more effectively than any other opponent. I believe this fight to be a
          real test of your mettle as Brad Hawk. Mission 99 is not impossible, but
          it is a great challenge for most players. 
    
        Mission 100: The Mastermind
    
        Opponent(s): William Bordin
    
        Description: (No Partner)
    
        - Take Bordin down.
    
        Strategy:
    
        - At first, I thought, how the heck am I supposed to get to hit Bordin???
          Later, I found out that all you have to do is keep on pressing Square
          repeatedly to dodge all of his gun shots. Once he is out of bullets, just
          run up to him and hit him a few times. He WILL go down in about two or
          three hits. A pathetic "last boss" to say the least. My fastest take down
          of Bordin was TWO SECONDS!!!!
    
        *Mythril Wyrm also emailed me a much quicker way to approach this mission:
    
        -"Instead of dodging his gunshots until he runs out of ammo, press R1 to
         target him and dash towards him as soon as the battle begins. When he
         fires at you, do a dodge roll. If you time it properly, you'll dodge the
         bullet and be in a perfect position to attack him when you come out of the
         roll."
    
        END OF STORY MODE:    
    
        - CONGRATULATIONS!!! You have finished the Story Mode of Urban Reign. What
          you unlock for your exploits is listed below. However, I highly doubt
          that you unlocked everything on the first playthrough of Urban Reign, so
          keep at it to unlock everything and check out the other modes as well!!!
        
        *After playing through all 100 missions, you will unlock Free Mode and
         Challenge Mode. For more information on these modes, refer to section 8:

    14). In-Game Codes
    
        - As good a game as Urban Reign is, there are still some complaints that I
          have about it. First of all, there is no two player co-op mode, and in
          a fighting game with so many characters, you would think there is some
          sort of code that unlocks all of them right away for you. I know that I
          am not alone here. The Urban Reign GameFAQs message boards have quite a
          few people who are disappointed with the lack of a two player co-op mode
          among other things. Well, a while (a LONG while) after this game was
          released, someone finally found some codes for Urban Reign. At first, I
          thought they were fake. I printed them out and took them home to try out.
          Needless to say, Urban Reign just got even better. There are quite a few
          codes (all of which I will list below for your convenience). Some of them
          are codes that only those who can't (or don't want to) finish the Story
          Mode would use. Others, however, just make the game more enjoyable and
          maybe even easier!
    
        - To activate any of the following cheats, simply input the button commands
          listed next to the desired cheat. This can only be done at the Urban
          Reign title screen (before the loading screen where you choose which file
          you want to load).
    
        - If you entered the code correctly, you will see an exclamation mark in the
          upper left or upper right corner of the title screen and hear a sound as
          confirmation of the correct code entry.
    
        - Most of these codes work. I know that some of them do not seem to work,
          so if anyone has the correct set of buttons for a particular code, send
          it in so I can correct it. Credit will be given to you for doing so.
