Offensive Options
When on the Jet Board you are not totally
defenseless. There is a manuever you can
perform on the enemy that can cause some
slight damage.

Hold Circle to release energy waves.

This move is considered fairly weak and
can be quite dangerous to pull off. I
would suggest just getting off the board
and using the morph-gun.

Ammo- The two guns that should be used most often are the Scatter and
Blaster. You will find ammo for these two guns almost everywhere you go.

Targetting- Having trouble hitting that Metal Head? Just move forward
slightly and Jak will lock right on that bugger for sure.

Holstering Weapons-Simply hold the D-pad down and Jak will do the rest
(Example Hold UP to put Scatter Mod away.)

Wastelander Moves-You can still perform wastelander moves with all the
levels of the morph-gun.

===============================================================================
Story Thus Far......................................................STF

Jak 3 picks up almost immediately after the ending of Jak II. A fanatical
religous zealot has gained a place of power on the "Council of Haven City".
This man is obsessed with getting Jak kicked out of the city. By using Jak's
connections with Krew he is able to convince the council that Jak is
responsible for letting the Metal Heads into the City. Thus the council rules
that Jak must be exiled into the wasteland. Even Ashelin can't save Jak from
the council. The game starts with Jak on the cruiser that is escorting him to
be dropped off in the middle of the wasteland where he faces certain death.

--Prove Yourself to Damus(ac1.01)--
[You Wouldn't Like Me When I'm Angry]

Recommended Buggy:N/A
Recommended Morph-Gun:N/A
Mission Difficulty:Zero/5

This mission should be a cake walk for you. It basically serves as the basic
tutorial for Jak 3. 

For this mission all you need to do is make it through a simple obstacle
course collecting all the "floating lights" along the way. there are 30 of them
in total and if you follow my directions you won't miss a single one.

Roll through the next 3 lights along the skinny path, and the other 3 at the
end before climbing the ladder to the left. Three more lights await you once
you reach the top.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Note of Special Interest:
To climb a ladder simply walk up to it and Jak will take over.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Jump up to the next level in front of you and collect the two lights in front
of the dummy, and the one behind him. Then jump to the small platform to your
left. Collect the light here and proceed to the next platform directly ahead
of you.

Collect the two lights then walk up against the wll to the right. Crouch and
jump to reach the next level. Collect the three lights here and move on to the
moving platform. Continue forward to the next platform.

Collect the two lights then roll and jump as your jump ends. If you fall or
miss your jump there is a way back up off to the side.

Once on the other side pick up the two lights and jump across another moving
platform to the right. Grab the three lights and break through the part of
the platform that is a different color.

Grab the three lights when you land and roll jump across the gap to grab
another light. Jump down to the right and proceed along the platform to grab
the final light.

A platform will rise up in front of you. Ride it up and jump into the light
to finish the mission.

Mission Reward: Access to Spargus City/Morph-Gun

--First Battle Amulet(ac1.02)--
[Wear it with Pride]

Recommended Buggy:N/A
Recommended Morgh-Gun:Lv1 Scatter
Mission Difficulty:*/5

This entire mission is just running around killing marauders. you'll need to
kill 20 of them to finsh. Just use your scatter gun and spin attacks to deal
with these guys. Just be sure you don't let yourself get surrounded.

Also when an alarm starts to ring and lava begins to bubble up you need to
jump up to the safety of the four boxes around the ring. Lava will surge up
momentarily, once it receedes you can resume your battle.

When only 5 or so marauders are left you'll get the chance to go dark Jak.
Use your punches to atttack them while still avoiding their attacks and the
lava.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Note of Special Interest:
Once you go Dark Jak you can't turn it off until the cinematic starts.
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Once all 20 are dead a platform will rise up. Jump on it and then enter the
light pillar to finish the mission.

Mission Reward: Access to Spargus City, Gate Pass, Lv1 Blaster and First
                Battle Amulet

*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

Once you are in control again jump on the platform behind you and jump again
onto the platform to your right, then go through the open doorway. Open the
crates if you need any ammo and proceed forward.

--"Capture" Six rats(ac1.00)--
[Meals on the Go]

Recommended Buggy:N/A
Recommended Morgh-Gun:N/A
Mission Difficulty:*/5

This mission is fairly straight forward. You are still confined within the
walls of Spargus City. Just ride your Leaper Lizard until the target is
directly in front of you. Then hit square to "capture" it. To find a rat just
look at your map, all the red dots are what you are looking for. Don't worry
about the rats leaving Spargus, they are just as stuck as you are. Once all
six are in your possession you can advance to the next mission.

Also be sure to avoid hitting any of your fellow citizens of Spargus City.
They will strike back if provoked.

Mission Reward: Access to Leaper Lizards

*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*=*

Once you finish that mission a new icon will appear on the radar near the
ocean. Follow the icon to meet up with a group of monks going over some
debries.

--Satellite Mini-Game(ac1.04)--
[The colors....]

Recommended Buggy:N/A
Recommended Morph-Gun:N/A
Mission Difficulty:*/5

This little minigame has you pressing the coresponding button on the controller
as the symbol passes through one of the four blue circles on screen. The order
of symbols seems somewhat random so just do as best as you can. Your goal is 75
correct symbols, but you can only miss 5 altogether.

Just so you know, triangles always come from the top of the screen, Circles
from the right, Cross is from the bottom, and squares come from the left.

Mission Reward: Dark Eco Crystal

If you look on your radar you'll see a fist icon. Follow it to start the next
mission from Kleiver.

--Dune Buggy Tutorial(ac1.00)--
[Let out your inner redkneck]

Recommended Buggy:Tough Puppy
Recommended Morph-Gun:N/A
Mission Difficulty:*/5

This is the Dune Buggy tutorial so pay attention. You'll be driving through a
series of Light Pillars until you've learned how to operate your buggy. If you
can't find a pillar it is represented by a flashing green dot on your radar.

For the first pillar just drive through it.

For Pillar number 2, just stop in the center of red rocks around the pillar,
then press L2 for rear-view.

The third pillar has you driving through it, then reversing back through it
again.

Now pillar four is surrounded by boxes, press L1 to jump over them and into the
pillar.

This next pillar is a little more complicated. As you reach the pillar press
Circle + Left on the analog stick to power slide around the corner, making
sure some part of the buggy passes through the pillar.

For the final pillar stop in the light, press L1 and the left analog stick left
or right to jump in place.

Once you finish with all the light pillars follow the dot on the radar to
activate the racing portion of this mission.

------------------------
Sub-Mission(Desert Race)
------------------------
This is a simple race against four other vehicles for three laps. Try to
avoid hitting the other cars and if you can collect all the boosts
(orange energy ball) vistory is assured.

Getting all the boosts is simple:

Boost one-Simply drive through it.

Boost two-Jump when on the very top of the sand dune in front of it.

[I never said I wanted to be an archeologist]

Recommended Buggy:Tough Puppy
Recommended Morph-Gun:N/A
Mission Difficulty:*/5

Time Mission

For this mission you will be collecting several Precursor artifacts across the
wasteland. Basically just head toward the green dot on your radar to find the
item and just drive through it to collect it.

You'll have to avoid constant attack from marauder vehicles while doing this
so try to keep your wits about you out there.

Drive out of the garage to start the timer and the mission.

Item #1
This item will be to your left next to the race track as you leave the garage.
39 seconds

Item #2
This item will be straight ahead after you collect the previous one.
26 seconds

Item #3
To the right of the previous item atop a average sized sand dune.
30 seconds

Item #4
Straight ahead and to the left.
27 seconds

Item #5
Across the broken bridge next to #4(you'll have to jump across it).
28 seconds

Item #6
To the right of the previous item.
30 seconds

Item #7
Straight ahead of the previous item.
25 seconds

Item #8
Again straight ahead of the previous item.
26 seconds

Item #9
To the right and back of #8, jump across the broken bridge to get there quick.

Item #10
Straight ahead of #9
25 seconds

Item #11
To the right
25 seconds

Item #12 (Final Artifact)
Straight ahead again.
27 seconds

Now you have about one minute to get the dune buggy back in the garage before
the sandstorms kill you. Just follow the green dot. You should get there with
around 18 seconds to spare.

Mission Difficulty:*/5

This mission has you racing three monks through Spargus City. Along the way
you must pass through every blue ring and come in first in order to pass the
mission.

Note of Special Interest:
for this race you really need to avoid hitting any of the citizens,
they may shoot at you if you hit them. But for some reason the monks
can hit every person from beginning to end and not have a single shot
go off, thats just not fair!

--Destroy Metal Head Beasts(ac1.08)--
[Big Game Hunter, Really Big]

Recommended Buggy:Sand Shark
Recommended Morph-Gun:N/A
Mission Difficulty:*/5

Once you are in control turn to your left to find a Dune Buggy with a beam
of light shining down upon it. Me thinks that is the buggy you need to choose.
So approach it and press Triangle to enter it. Now drive straight ahead through
the open gate out into the wasteland. If you look down at your map you will see
some blinking green dots, follow them to find the metal heads you need to stop.
Also remember to try and avoid hitting any of the rocks or trees you see around
the wasteland, because just like in real life if you hit a rock-wall at 
breakneck speeds you'll damage your ride.

These metal head's have a cannon on their back that fires charged balls of dark
eco at you. It can fire at you from any direction. You will also need to avoid
the creature's head at all costs. If you do make the mistake of getting too
close it can and will toss you in the air a good distance. Also don't get
trampled beneath their feet, this will result in instant death.

The main strategy for these guys is to keep moving. Just make strafing runs
and fire at one particular MH whenever you get a clear shot. If you see him
launch a shot at you STOP! If you keep moving forward the shot will land next
to you and cause damage.

One Metal Head will be off by himself as you round the turn into their "arena"
as I call it, take him out first so you don't have to worry about the others
shooting at you. Shoot the buggy's weapons (R1) as you drive the buggy to stay
within range. You'll know your shots are hitting him when you see little
purple explosions along his body.

Keep firing on this guy. It may seem like you aren't causing any damage but
he will go down after a little while. Also be sure that you don't get confused
between the other three of these guys. When you see it fall over on it's side
you'll know you've managed to kill this guy.

Now looking at your map again you'll notice that one other metal head is
rampaging by himself as well. So approach him and show him what
happened to his friend. this guy should go down without any major problems.

Now the final two metal heads are smarter then the first two, they will
tend to stay close to one another to make your job difficult.

Just pick the closer one of the two and pour it into him. As long as you
don't mix him up with the other metal head he shouldn't be a problem, just
use the same tactics as before.

Now for the final metal head, this guy tends to be running around in an area
of the wasteland that makes it difficult to hit him without getting hurt
yourself. Just do the best you can to avoid his attacks and hold down the
trigger constantly. After hitting him enough he will fall over, but he isn't
finished yet. This particular metal head will get back up again and start after
you again. Just shoot him like before and he'll finally fall down for good.

Mission Reward: Dark Eco Crystal.

*** More Coming Soon ***

===============================================================================
Characters..........................................................Cha
Jak 3 has a large cast of characters, this section is for your benefit in
case you get confused as to who I or other characters may be talking about
during the game.

--
Jak-The main Hero of this game. After saving Haven city from the Metal Heads
he gets exiled to the harsh wastelands as thanks. Needless to say he's had
enough of saving the world.

"The city threw me out, they can rot for all I care, I'm through saving the
world."

Voice Artist: Michael Erwin

--
Daxter-This ottsel has come a long way from the person we first knew. He has
learned to accept his new life as an Ottsel. Even though he doesn't have pants
anymore being an ottsel does have its perks. Daxter's main role in this game
will be to crack jokes at every opportunity he can get.

"Our boy here gets all mean and nasty when ya piss him off, so don't piss him
off, word to the wise."


Voice Artist: Max Casella

--
Samos-Jak's most trusted friend and ally, he is the closest thing to a father
figure to Jak. Samos has been helping Jak since the very beginning.
Samos is also a master of green eco. He also had the ability to fly/hover in
the first game, but seems to not use it anymore.

"Jak, were in SERIOUS trouble!"

Voice Artist: Warren Burton

--
Kiera-Jak's main/only love interest and close companion. She has been
responsible for making the gadgets our heroes use on their journeys.
Her latest invention was Jak's hoverboard.

"Jak's always gotten us through thick and thin. I'm with him."

Voice Artist: Tara Strong

--
Torn-The new leader/commander of the Freedom League troops. He's not afraid of
a fight, though you never see him actually fight someone.

"If we lose this one, we're history."

Voice Artist: Cutter Mitchell

--
Ashelin-The daughter of Baron Praxis. She is also one of Jak's closest friends.
She isn't afraid  of getting in a fight to protect her friends or the city
itself. She also is very fond of Torn.

"Don't you remember who you are?"

Voice Artist: Susan Eisenberg

--
Sig-The lovable badass from Jak II. However this time it looks like Jak
and Sig have a real rivalry going on between them. a rivalry that may not
be so friendly.

"Let's finish this."

Voice Artist: Phil LaMarr

--
Onin-The blind, deaf, mute soothsayer. Basically the unluckiest woman in
existance:) She also helped Jak alot in the previous game. For unknown reasons
she sends Pecker out into the wastelands with Jak & Daxter.

"..........."

Voice Artist: None

--
Pecker-Onin's "Pet". Best described as if Antonio Banderas and Gilbert Gotfried
had a child. Much like Daxter he appears to be two animals fused
together to make a new one. He never gets along with Daxter and seems to know
Damus in someway.

"You want a crown? I'll crown YOU."

Voice Artist: Chris Cox

--
Tess-Daxter's love interest from the previous game. She was also a resistance
fighter. She may seem simple minded but she can be cunning and is VERY loyal
to her friends. She also made all those nifty new gun modes you've been using.

"Now I want you to protect my baby with this, or else I'll hunt you down and
hurt you REAL bad."

Voice Artist: Britton A. Hill M.D.

--
Jinx-He was one of Krew's associates you had to protect in the sewers from the
previous game. He certainly doesn't take any lip from anyone.

"Hey there Jaky Boy!"

Voice Artist: Cutter Mitchell

--
Veger-A religous zealot obsessed with Light Eco. He seems to have a place
of authority on the council. He also really, really, REALLY doesn't like Jak.

"You seem upset, how delightful."

Voice Artist: Phil Lamarr

--
Damus-This man is the king of Spargus. He is also the leader of the
wastelanders and is responsible for their safety.

"Prove yourselves worthy, or the desert will be your grave."

Voice Artist: Bumper Robinson

--
Kleiver-The wastelander equivalent of an Aussie. Complete with accent. He is
responsible for maintaining the buggy's in the garage of Spargus.

"Go get 'em heroes he he he."

Voice Artist: Brian Bloom
--
Seem-A very mysterious precursor monk. Very little is known about her. But
she mostly just talks about Daystar this, and apocalypse that.

"This planet's final trial is coming."

Voice Artist: Tara Strong

--
Krimzon Guard Leader-This "man" came to power shortly after the events
of Jak II. He now commands the Krimzon Guard(Red Guards) and has control over
a portion of Haven City. Letting his reign of terror continue would be a major
"Error" on the part of our heroes.

"You WILL meet your makers!"

Voice Artist: [CENSORED]


===============================================================================
Collectibles........................................................Col

Most of the collectibles you find in the game will come from Krimzon Guard
Crates. These crates are just like the ones from the previous game and are
best described as a red and blue box on the ground. Enemies can also offer
a few collectibles.


--KG Crates--
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Green Eco Pack
These are very important on your journey. Collecting one of these will
restore ??? hitpoints.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Ammo
Anytype of ammo can be found in a KG crate. The color of the ammo shows
which gun it is for. Scatter ammo will restore five shots. Blaster will
restore 10 shots. Vulcan fury ammo will also restore 10 shots. Peace
Maker ammo will restore 1 shot. Scatter and Blaster ammo are the most
common types.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Dark Eco
This purple eco will allow Jak to transform into Dark Jak if he collects
enough of it.Pretty rare in crates, they usually appear in areas where
you are going to want to use Dark Jak very soon. Just for the sake of
knowledge, it takes 85 "pieces" of Dark Eco to fill your meter.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Metal Head Gems
Killing a metal head will release this gem from it's forehead. It is
bright yellow and tends to bounce for a little bit. These shiny little
things are used to activate the side missions. If the gem you were
looking for should happen to fall off the edge of a cliff where you
can't follow it don't worry. It should "jump" back up to where you are
if your lucky.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

--Enemies--
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Metal Head Gems
Killing a metal head will release this gem from it's forehead. It is
bright yellow and tends to bounce for a little bit. These shiny little
things are used to activate the side missions. If the gem you were

can't follow it don't worry. It should "jump" back up to where you are
if your lucky.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Dark Eco
Killing MH's will always leave Dark Eco behind. Collect enough dark eco
to bring the pain to your enemies. Just for the sake of knowledge,
it takes 85 "pieces" of Dark Eco to fill your meter.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Light Eco
Looking like a ball of blue light, this will refill your light eco meter.
You should be aware that when compared to dark eco it is EXTREMELY rare.
I suggest collecting it whenever you come across it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Ammo
Killing a KG will usually leave ammo around. An interesting fact is that
the ammo usually left behind is for the gun that has the least ammo in
it.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------


--Precursor Items--
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Precursor Orbs
These floating brown orbs are very rare and valuable. In the final game
You can collect three of these by doing any side mission activated at a
tiki statue found out in the wasteland.Collocting enough of them
will unlock a cheat in the cheat menu.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Precursor Armor
While not a "collectible" like the others here, this seemed as good a
place as any for it. This item will give Jak more Hitpoints which inturn
lets Jak take more damage without dying. And more life is ALWAYS a good
thing.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
