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
                     Law, William Bordin, Lilian Evans, Vera Ross, Torque, Rod,
                     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
                     Character Profiles. Completed inputting statistics for

                     Steiner, Douglas McKinzie, Napalm 99, Lin Fong Lee, and

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.

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:
     Game Modes.
===============================================================================
===============================================================================
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.
