1. INTRODUCTION & CHANGES
 1.1 INTRODUCTION
Unreal Championship is a FPS (First Person Shooter) based on the
PC game Unreal Tournament. Bearing many similarities and
references to the PC, it still makes a solid standalone game.

This Guide is very straight forward. If you have anything I
should add, feel free to e-mail me at the above address. I will
NOT be posting glitches in this Guide. I'm always looking for
new strategies to add, or other things of use (controller
setups, etc). This guide has been updated since a patch was
released for UC.

 1.2 CHANGES
Changes go down in order, from oldest (original creation) to newest
(last update).

V1.0 - April 30th - Original Creation
 Basics were written and submitted.
V1.2 - May 26th
 Updated Section 1.1 Introduction
 Added this section (1.2 Changes)
 Added section 1.3 Patch Changes/Fixes & Explanations
 Added a small note, section 3.4
 Updated Section 10.3 Offline Multiplayer
 Added section 10.7 Using Mutators
 Updated section 11.6 - Berserk Definition
 Added section 12.1 General Strategies, bumped old section 12s by one

 Corrected the silly updated date

 1.3 PATCH CHANGES/FIXES & EXPLANATIONS
Changes of May 22, 2003:
1) The T.A.G. Rifle exploit. 
2) The Rocket Launcher exploit. 
3) All known map exploits. 
4) The auto-aim exploit. 
5) The novice bot, stats exploit. 
6) The message: "No AA" now denotes a server that has auto-aim
 disabled. 
7) The ‘ghost-flag’ exploit, in CTF matches. 
8) Joining full servers: UC now checks if there is room in the
 game... before loading the map. 
9) Resolved an occasional crash when joining a friend's match. 
10) Resolved issues with Max Players & Private Slots. 
11) Players will now receive 1-point of damage when impeding
 lifts. 
12) The translocator disc will return to the gun, if it impedes
 a lift. 
13) Players can no longer utilize the translocator, to pass
 through world geometry. 
14) Anti-aliasing is now disabled by default. To enable it,
 depress both thumbsticks simultaneously during the initial
 UC intro video sequence. 
15) Team-balancing fixed. The message "Teams Unbalanced", will
 show up briefly during an existing match, if the teams become
 unbalanced. 

Explanation of the above changes:
1) No longer have infinite ammo with the T.A.G. Rifle
2) Hosts can no longer stay locked on people forever
3) Too much to explain.
4) Hosts cannot disable autoaim for guests and turn it back on
 for self.
5) Cannot slaughter bots on Live to fortify stats falsely.
6) Self explanatory.
7) Can no longer make flags appear to still be at base when they
 really are not.
8) You won't get the message "This game is no longer available
 AFTER loading the level" anymore
9) Self explained.
10) I'm unsure of what is being referenced.
11) Standing under an elevator of any type when it comes down
 harms you
12) Translocator discs cannot be used to make an elevator steadily
 go up and down forever.
13) All methods of getting outside level boundaries have been fixed.
14) Self explanatory.
15) Anytime one team has more total players than another, the message
 "Teams Unbalanced" will be displayed briefly.



2. BACKGROUND
STORY BACKGROUND: The story opens with the death of a.. oh wait.
There is no background story included. Guess that concludes
section 2 of this Guide!



3. SETTING UP THE GAME

 3.1 SINGLE PLAYER
Simply turn the power on, insert the game disc, and let it load.
If you have never played before, you'll have to create a
profile. Otherwise, the one you played with last will already be
selected. The Xbox has a 'memory cache' that remembers some
things. If you've played several other games since UC, you'll be
asked to choose/create a profile again. After doing so, go to
Instant Action for a quick match, or choose Single Player for a
series of various matches forming a 'campaign.'

 3.2 SYSTEM LINK PLAY
After loading a profile, select System Link from the main menu.
The screen that comes up will have a list of all games being
hosted with available room. If none are listed, you can host
one.

For directions on setting up the system link, check your Xbox's
manual.

If you have broadband connection, but do Not have Xbox Live, you
can still play ANY System Link capable game online. Simply go to
http://www.gamespyarcade.com/tunnel/
             or
http://www.xbconnect.com/
and follow directions.

 3.3 XBOX LIVE
Go to the following address for complete help with setup:
http://www.xbox.com/live

DIRECT CONNECTION: Turn the modem's power off. Plug a normal RJ-
45 ethernet cable into the modem's ethernet port, and the
Xbox's ethernet port. Turn the modem back on. After it
establishes connection and is ready for use, you should be able
to connect to Live. The reason for turning the modem's power
off is that it will 'capture' the address (MAC address) of the
Xbox for communication. The Xbox itself has the ability to
'clone' the MAC address of anything else if you know what it
is. For example, you could clone the MAC Address of your PC's
ethernet card, and there would be no need to power on and off
the modem when plugging the cable into either one.

ROUTER CONNECTION: If you wish to be able to use both computer
and Xbox online at the same time (or anything else that
requires your broadband services), a router is the best way to
go. First, power off the modem, then connect the modem to the
router's Uplink port, or WAN port (refer to router's manual).
Next, connect the Xbox to an available port on the router, as
well as anything else needed. Turn the modem and router's power
back on. With a little luck, everything should now be working.
Try surfing the web with your PC. If it doesn't work, read
section 3.3a of this guide for more technical help.

USB MODEM/ICS CONNECTION: If your modem has no ethernet port,
you'll need to buy an ethernet card and install it into your
PC. This is the most complex method of connecting, and requires
your PC to be ON for the Xbox to access the net. Due to that,
please use the above address to find help on it.

  3.3a ROUTER HELP
Be sure your router is compatible with Xbox Live. Go here:
http://www.xbox.com/LIVE/connect/routers.htm

If you can connect to games, but people cannot join yours, be
sure to have the correct ports on your router forwarded/open.
You need the following: UDP 88, UDP 3074, and TCP 3074
AOL Broadband is NOT compatible with Xbox Live, no matter what
router.

WILL ADD MORE AT A LATER DATE IF REQUESTED.. ALL INFORMATION
NEEDED CAN BE FOUND AT XBOX'S SITE.

 3.4 ACTUALLY PLAYING
Read section 10 of this guide for directions.

5. GAME TYPES

 5.1 DEATHMATCH
MANUAL DETAILS: Deathmatch is an every-man-for-himself sport in
which you use weapons and pickups found through each match to
kill the other players. Every time you kill another player,
your score goes up one point. The first player to reach a
predetermined score wins the match.

 5.2 TEAM DEATHMATCH
MANUAL DETAILS: Team Deathmatch is just like regular Deathmatch,
except that the players in the map are split into two teams. A
team's score goes up one point every time a player from the
other team is killed. The team that reaches the predetermined
limit first wins.

 5.3 SURVIVAL
MANUAL DETAILS: Survival is a one-on-one match, that pits you
against all of the other players in the game, one at a time.

 5.4 CAPTURE THE FLAG
MANUAL DETAILS: Capture the Flag is a team game where one team
must capture the other team's flag a predetermined amount of
times to win the match. To capture the other team's flag, run
over the flag in the other team's base, and then return to your
base and touch your own flag. You drop the flag if you are
killed or use the Translocator. (Note: Cannot score if other
team currently has your flag)

 5.5 BOMBING RUN
MANUAL DETAILS: Bombing Run is a team game where one team must
grab the ball, which spawns in the middle of the map, and
deliver it to a Bomb Gate in the opposing team's base. Players
can launch the ball through the Bomb Gate or run through it.
Once a team has scored a predetermined number of times, they
win the match.

 5.6 DOUBLE DOMINATION
MANUAL DETAILS: Double Domination is a team game where one team
must control both Domination Points in the map simultaneously
for 12 seconds. Each time a team manages to do this, they score
one point. The first team to reach a predetermined score wins
the match.

 5.7 ADDITIONAL INFO
MANUAL DETAILS: When you select a game type you wish to play, you
have the option of choosing on which maps to play. Your team is
picked automatically for you and will be different in each
game. The only goal of Instant Action play is to win individual
matches. At any time during Instant Action play, a second (and
third or fourth player, depending on which map is being played)
can plug in another controller and join in the action on
splitscreen.

NOTES: When choosing the map in any game type, press the X button
to go into settings. Press X again from there to access the
Mutator settings. You can enable or disable a mutator by pressing
the A button while it is highlighted. The Arena mode is the only
mutator with extra options (also accessed by pressing X when
highlighted). When done with anything, press B to return to the
previous menu. When ready to begin the game, just select the
map and continue like normal. For simple strategies, check
section 12 of this Guide (incomplete at this time).



6. WEAPONS
NOTE: All information displayed is based upon the character
having NO affinity with the weapon being described. Changes
made by affinity will be listed also, however. 

 6.1 SHIELDGUN
MANUAL DETAILS: The Kemphler DD280 Riot Control Device has the
ability to resist and reflect incoming projectiles and energy
beams. The plasma wave inflicts massive damage, rupturing
tissue, pulverizing organs, and flooding the bloodstream with
dangerous gas bubbles. This weapon may be intended for combat
at close range, but when wielded properly should be
considered as dangerous as any other armament in your
arsenal.

PRIMARY FIRE: A close range weapon, it requires no ammo to use.
By holding the primary fire button, it charges an attack.
Depending upon the percent charged, the damage varies. Must
make direct contact with an opponent to inflict damage.

SECONDARY FIRE: Holding the alternate fire button creates a
shield in front of you that will absorb or deflect attacks
against you. It ONLY protects from the front, and will drain
the energy of the weapon.

STARTING/MAX AMMO: 100 - Will recharge automatically when not in
use.

PLAYING TIPS:
 1) The shield gun can be used as a method of upwards
propulsion by charging the primary fire and tapping the
alternate fire. Height of projection into air is based
on strength of charge at use. A fully charged shield
jump will deal 25 damage to the user (less if not
charged fully, but less jump as well).

 2) The alternate fire is a very effective defensive weapon.
When it prevents damage, it drains from your shield
power (taking heavy fire will run you out of ammo
quickly). Try to use it only when needed. It will
consume ammo slowly when using it anyway. Recharges
when not in use.

 3) By stating "direct contact" in the primary, I did not mean you
have to literally RAM the opponent. This is false. While it IS one
way to use the weapon, I recommend NOT using it this way. If you
charge the weapon and "release" the charge, it emits a very small
(but powerful) shockwave. You can get CLOSE to an enemy and release
the charge intentionally to damage them with it. Good thing to know
when having shield wars with friends. :)

 4) If you dodge backwards (default controls is D-pad down twice),
and release the charge on the shield gun's primary attack while
looking at the ground, you can throw yourself much further back by
jumping again in midair. You get the best distance by looking just
a LITTLE higher than as far downwards as you normally can. It still
hurts you though. The improvement is NOT enough to warrant the
difficulty it requires compared to using tip 1 for an upwards boost.

 5) Team strategy: Shield to shield contact. One player charges
primary attack to 100, second player puts up shield defensively.
First player rams seconds shield, sending them flying a VERY long
distance. Second player can also jump once during the middle of
their flight, increasing the distance even more. Automatons, of
course, get the largest bonus from this.

 6) Berserk (NOT double damage) increases how far you are thrown
upwards from tip 1, or distance on tips 4 and 5. DRASTICALLY for
tip 1, not too noticeable on 4 and 5. You simply have to test it
to see.

 7) Failing having someone to "bump" you in tip 5, use the
knowledge from tip 6 combined with tip 1 and dodging. Best used on
characters that move FAST (Gen Mo Kai & Humans - plus Automatons by
default due to jumping ability). Directions: Charge shield gun
attack. Dodge forward (or backwards, left, right, whatever), press
the secondary on shield gun so it auto-fires downwards, throwing you
high in the air, then perform a double jump in the air. The distance
gained is INCREDIBLE.

DAMAGE: Based on how much it is charged. A fully charged attack
deals exactly 100 damage on contact.

BERSERK DAMAGE: 200 fully charged.

 AFFINITIES:
AMMO: Increases starting and max ammo to 300.
DAMAGE: Currently no characters with damage affinity.
FIRE RATE: Currently no characters with a fire affinity.
		

 6.2 ASSAULT RIFLE
MANUAL DETAILS: Inexpensive and easily produced, the AR770
provides a lightweight 5.56mm combat solution that is most
effective against unarmored foes. With low-to-moderate armor
penetration capabilities, this rifle is best suited as a
light support weapon. The optional M355 Grenade Launcher
provides the punch that makes this weapon effective against
heavily armored enemies.

PRIMARY FIRE: As no weapons require reloading, the AR will
deliver a steady stream of bullets at a decent rate when the
primary fire is pressed.

SECONDARY FIRE: When the fire is held, it charges a grenade for
launching. Although it can be tapped to quickly fire a
grenade, the force behind it is so weak it only goes a few
feet. The longer the charge, the further it flies.

STARTING/MAX AMMO: 80 rounds, 4 grenades/160 rounds, 8 grenades

PLAYING TIPS:
 1) A very tough weapon to use effectively, but Very deadly
in skilled hands. Not much to it, other than aim at
opponent, pull trigger. Try not to waste fire when
chasing someone 'hoping' for a hit if you are far off
mark.

 2) If there is no enemy nearby and it is your only weapon,
hold the secondary fire so a grenade is charging/charged
when you do run into someone. A well placed grenade can
severely cripple, if not kill, an opponent you just
suddenly ran into.

 3) Can use the secondary fire in junction with another
weapon. When holding a charged grenade, press the
next/prev weapon button to cycle to another weapon. The
AR will change immediately UPON the release of the
grenade to your selected choice, but not before.

DAMAGE: 5 damage per assault rifle bullet, 55-110 direct hit
grenade (grenades have splash damage when explode on ground)

BERSERK DAMAGE: 12 per bullet. Alot per grenade

 AFFINITIES:
AMMO: Starts with 160 rounds and 8 grenades, max of 320
rounds, 16 grenades
DAMAGE: 10 per bullet, 100-220 per grenade
FIRE RATE: Slightly noticeable. Damage isn't high enough to
be of use.

 6.3 MINIGUN
MANUAL DETAILS: With an unloaded weight of only 8 kilograms, the
Schultz-Metzger T23-A 23mm rotary cannon is portable and
maneuverable, easily worn across the back when employing the
optional carrying strap. The T23-A is a rotary cannon of
choice for the discerning soldier.

PRIMARY FIRE: Extremely fast barrage of bullets, capable of
dealing 272 damage in 5.4 seconds straight on with 100
bullets. This is allowing for the .7 second time to start
firing after pulling the trigger.

SECONDARY FIRE: A slower barrage of bullets that hits harder.
Takes 14.6 seconds to empty a clip of 100.

STARTING/MAX AMMO: 100 start, 250 max

PLAYING TIPS:
 1) This weapon is EXTREMELY powerful. When an enemy is
being shot by it, it becomes very hard to move or jump.
Once you really lock onto them, unless they make it
around a corner or over a ledge, one of you two should
die if no ammo shortage occurs.

 2) Choosing which method of fire to use is critical!
Juggernauts are slow, but have massive amounts of
health. If the Juggernaut is 'dangerous' (ie, flak
cannon, rocket launcher, Very good aimer with other
weapons) then use the primary fire to kill them fast.
However, if the juggernaut is NOT so dangerous (at a
long distance, bad aimer, etc) then use the alternate
fire. The idea is to conserve ammo if you can. Another 
good thing is to remember that shooting someone with the 
minigun messes with their movement. For a juggernaut,
they have no choice but to try and fight, they are
slowed down so much escape is impossible. The secondary
fire is almost too slow to really phase a race like the
Gen Mo'Kai's speed, so try to use the main fire to
eliminate them quickly.

 3) Always keep the barrel rotating when not in use if you
can. Once you get the rhythm down, it'll become habit to
tap the fire button just long enough to get the barrel
rotating good, but not fire. This can help shave almost
a full second off the time needed to kill someone or
riddle them with holes at the very least when you run
into them. Reaction time is a big factor in this game.
By not having the barrel warm and spinning, you give any
opponent a .7 second bonus to their reaction time. Not
good.

 4) Circle and shoot. Never stand still, of course, but try
not to walk straight at someone or directly left/right
either. You have to keep them in your sights, so circle
them.

DAMAGE: 4 damage per bullet primary, 7 per secondary

BERSERK DAMAGE: 10 primary, 18 per secondary

 AFFINITIES:
AMMO: Start with 200 bullets, max of 500.
DAMAGE: 5 primary, 9-11 secondary
FIRE RATE: Slightly noticeable

 6.4 FLAK CANNON 3.0
MANUAL DETAILS: Trident Defensive Technologies Series 7 Flechette
Cannon has been taken to the next step in evolution with the
production of the Mk3 "Negotiator." The ionized flechettes
are capable of delivering second- and third-degree burns to
organic tissue, cauterizing the wound instantly. Payload
delivery is achieved via one of two methods: ionized
flechettes launched in a spread pattern directly from the
barrel; or via fragmentation grenades that explode on impact,
radiation flechettes in all directions.

PRIMARY FIRE: A spread-shot pattern is projected from the barrel
at a decent velocity. Will ricochet off solid surfaces one
time (will damage user if not careful).

SECONDARY FIRE: A grenade is lobbed in an arc forwards, exploding
upon impact (wall, ground, player, doesn't matter). Explosion
sends a spray of shots in random directions that will bounce
off surfaces one time (do not use in close proximity).

STARTING/MAX AMMO: 15 start, 50 max

PLAYING TIPS:
 1) A very powerful weapon with it's high damage, it is very
ineffective at long range combat. Very suited to mid or
close range fighting. Grenades are slow enough that you
need to predict where an enemy will be, but fast enough
that it's not too hard to master.
  2) Always use the main fire when "on top" of an enemy. The
alternate fire will hurt you as much as the target when
it explodes, frequently killing you more than him/her.
Both attacks deal the same amount of damage on direct
impact. However, the grenade does a full 90 with ALL
direct hits; the primary fire does damage per flechette
that hits, totalling a max of 90.

DAMAGE: About 90-100 damage per flak grenade (direct hit). 90
damage max DIRECT hit from ALL shards of the cannon's primary
fire. Generally average 25-60 damage per shot that hits from
a distance.

BERSERK DAMAGE: 180 primary point blank, 180 secondary direct hit

 AFFINITIES:
AMMO: 30 start, 100 max
DAMAGE: 108 primary, 108 secondary (direct hit)
FIRE RATE: Very noticeable and useful!

 6.5 LIGHTNING GUN
MANUAL DETAILS: The Lightning Gun is a high-power energy rifle
capable of ablating even the heaviest carapace armor.
Acquisition of a target at long range requires a steady hand,
but the anti-jitter effect of the optical system reduces the
weapon's learning curve significantly. Once the target has
been acquired, the operator depresses the trigger, painting a
proton "patch" on the target. Millisecond later, the rifle
emits a high-voltage arc of electricity, which seeks out the
charge differential and annihilates the target.

PRIMARY FIRE: A devastating bolt of electricity is fired
instantly directly at the target.

SECONDARY FIRE: The secondary fire is actually a zoom function,
that zooms in closer the longer it is held. Release to stop
zooming, tap again to exit zoom mode.

STARTING/MAX AMMO: 12 start, 30 max.

PLAYING TIPS:
 1) When playing online, the best method is to predict the
target's movement a little. Depending upon your
connection, the shot will NOT be instant, no matter what
(unless you are host). With a good connection, the shot
will appear instant, although it actually does take 50-
150milliseconds. Anything beyond that becomes noticeable
to the point this weapon is rendered ineffective.

 2) The zoom is NOT really useful at all. Standing still to
snipe will get you killed FAST. Occasionally you'll come
across instances where someone is standing still for a
few seconds, in which you can get that zoom in for a
precious headshot while moving. After some time, you'll
come to the point where you really no longer need to
zoom in unless the target is extremely far away and you
simply don't feel like wasting that second shot. When
zooming, the bar on right indicates time between shots.
When full, you can fire. Bar empties when fired, then
refills.

 3) Recenter the aim ALOT. Always recenter when on level
ground before firing. Clicking the right joystick in
should become second nature. A centered shot on any one
on level ground with you is a headshot if you get in or
near the middle of their body. Easy headshots.

DAMAGE: 60 damage per shot anywhere but head. Headshots are 120
damage (note that headshots are NOT instant kills, just a
double damage bonus).

BERSERK DAMAGE: 240 headshots, 120 anywhere else

 AFFINITIES:
AMMO: Start 24, max of 60.
DAMAGE: 72 body, 144 headshots
FIRE RATE: Very noticeable increase in rate of fire.

 6.6 ROCKET LAUNCHER
MANUAL DETAILS: The Trident Tri-barrel Rocket Launcher is
extremely popular among the competitors who enjoy more bang
for their buck. The rotating rear-loading barrel design
allows for both single- and multi-warhead launches, letting
you place up to three dumbfire rockets on target. The
warheads are designed to deliver maximum concussive force to
the target and surrounding area upon detonation.

PRIMARY FIRE: A single rocket launched in a straight path,
exploding with splash damage on impact.

SECONDARY FIRE: Hold the secondary fire to load three rockets
into the barrel, automatically firing upon the loading of the
third rocket. Can release the button at any time to fire all
rockets currently loaded (one or two).

STARTING/MAX AMMO: 12 start, 48 max

PLAYING TIPS:
 1) First off, the manual mentions the word "dumbfire".
While this is true in part, if you can keep a target in
close proximity of your cross-hairs (no matter the
distance between you and him/her) you will be notified
of the "lock on" sound and a circle around them. The
next shot (single or triple) will home in, following the
straight path possible (ie, does not go around corners
unless far enough to pass it when turning). Lock on can
be lost by aiming the reticle elsewhere.

 2) When hosting on Live, or playing single player, it takes
almost twice as long to get a lock on as when playing on
someone else's server. However, to balance it out you can keep the
firing button pressed to maintain that lock (will consume ammo,
but very useful).

 3) When locked onto a target, if you quickly look at
another enemy and release to fire, the rockets WILL
target the new enemy, even though the circle is
following the old one still. Be sure to fire before the
circle vanishes from first target however, or the
rockets will revert to dumbfire.

 4) The only race that truly requires triple rocket shot to
kill is the juggernauts. I often only load dual rockets,
as it is adequate to severly cripple any other race. If
the dual rockets miss, I saved myself an extra rocket.
If it hits and I did not see the glow of a shield, I
switch to something else (link gun if I have it) to
finish them off.

DAMAGE: 68 a rocket, 204 triple rockets

BERSERK DAMAGE: 136 single rocket, 408 triple rockets

 AFFINITIES:
AMMO: 24 start, 96 max
DAMAGE: 82 single rocket, 244 triple rockets
FIRE RATE: Very noticeable, in primary fire and secondary.
Makes secondary fire extremely deadly.

 6.7 SHOCK RIFLE
MANUAL DETAILS: The ASMD Shock Rifle has changed little since its
incorporation into the tournaments. The ASMD sports two
firing modes capable of acting in concert to neutralize
opponents in a devastating shockwave. This combination attack
is achieved when the weapon operator utilizes the secondary
fire mode to deliver a charge of seeded plasma to the target.
Once the slow-moving plasma charge is within range of the
target, the weapon operator may fire the photon beam into the
plasma core, releasing the explosive energy of the anti-
photons contained within the plasma's EM field.
 COMBO: Shooting the projectile from the secondary fire, with a
blast from the primary fire, will result in a large blast
with an explosive force.

PRIMARY FIRE: A quick burst 'laser' shot that travels a straight
line instantly.

SECONDARY FIRE: A ball of plasma that travels in a straight line
at a decent speed, although somewhat slow.

STARTING/MAX AMMO: 20 start, 50 max

PLAYING TIPS:
 1) Holding down the tirgger is not the best method of
employing this gun. Aim and then fire. When up real
close, use the alternate fire. Both deal the same amount
of damage, but the secondary is a "wide" shot. It also
moves slow, so an enemy moving around alot has a very
good chance of running into it. Also, when the secondary
hits someone, it "throws" them somewhat. This can
disorient players easily.

 2) Use the shock combo if you can! But don't WASTE ammo of
you don't think you will hit anything. Again, "hoping"
you will hit something here is a bad idea. The combo
takes a total of 5 ammo, not 2. Although secondary fire
is 1 munition, as well as primary, the explosion
requires extra.

 3) Lead your enemies.. make them follow you around a
corner. Backpedal around it, fire the alternate shot,
then explode it in their face when they come around the
corner. They won't see it coming til it's too late. Most
people will fall for this from time to time, but they
aren't dumb.. they don't fall for it ALL the time.

 4) People waiting around a small corner that can't get away
but you know are waiting to hit you are prime targets of
a shock combo. Use the explosive range to kill them. But
you need to decide if it's worth that 5-15 ammo to kill
them without seeing them.

DAMAGE: 30 damage primary. 30 secondary, 130ish combo

BERSERK DAMAGE: 60 primary, 60 secondary, 260ish combo

 AFFINITIES:
AMMO: 40 start, 100 max
DAMAGE:  36 primary, 36 secondary, 180ish combo
FIRE RATE: Very noticeable difference here as well. Can
also perform combos much sooner due to being able to
fire primary soon after secondary.

 6.8 T.A.G RIFLE/ION CANNON
MANUAL DETAILS: The T.A.G. Rifle seems innocuous enough at first
glance, emitting a harmless low-power laser beam when the
primary firing mode is engaged. When it hits, a small glow will
appear for a brief period, "painting" the target. If there is a
direct line of sight to the orbiting Ion Cannon satellite, the
Cannon will orient itself to the target. Several seconds later
the multi-gigawatt orbital ion cannon fires on the target,
neutralizing any combatants in the vicinity. The T.A.G. Rifle
is a remote-targeting device used to orient and fire the VAPOR
Ion Cannon. The T.A.G. Rifle offers increased targeting
accuracy via its telescopic sight, easily activated by the
secondary fire mode of the weapon. Once the T.A.G. Rifle has
been used to designate a target, it is highly recommended that
the user put considerable distance between themselves and the
weapon's area of effect.

PRIMARY FIRE: Emits a red targeting laser. Hold it still on a
target for several seconds until it vanishes. The blast will
follow shortly.

SECONDARY FIRE: Same scope as the lightning gun. The bar on the
right of screen will fill up when pressing the primary fire,
indicating how long to "paint" the target.

STARTING/MAX AMMO: 1 start, 1 max

PLAYING TIPS:
 1) Good for blasting an entire base or entrance when an
opponent you need to kill is heading for it.

DAMAGE: Varies. Very high.

BERSERK DAMAGE: Unsure if it affects.

 AFFINITIES:
AMMO: None applicable.
DAMAGE: None applicable.
FIRE RATE: None applicable.

 6.9 TRANSLOCATOR
MANUAL DETAILS: The Translocater was originally designed by the
Liandri Corporations R&D sector to facilitate the rapid
recall of miners during tunnel collapses and other
emergencies. The technology has saved countless lives, but
not without cost. Rapid deresolution and reconstitution of
the subject organism can have several unwelcome effects,
including increases in aggression and paranoia, as well as
increased probabilities of respiratory and cardiac arrest.
Artifacts of synaptic disruption accumulate in the biological
snapshot of the individual, leading to Teleportation Related
Dementia (TReDs), an incurable disease that has stricken some
of our greatest champions. In order to prolong the careers of
today's contenders, limits have been placed on Translocater
use. The was deemed necessary to prevent new recruits from
become too reliant on the device, thereby sealing their own
doom. The latest iteration of the Translocator features a
remotely operated camera, exceptionally useful when scouting
out areas of contention. It should be noted that while
viewing the camera's surveillance output, the user is
effectively blind to their immediate surroundings.

PRIMARY FIRE: Projects a small disc in an arc forward. Switches
to camera mode if disc is already out. Third press destroys
the disc.

SECONDARY FIRE: Teleports to the disc currently out.

STARTING/MAX AMMO: 5 start, 5 max

PLAYING TIPS:
 1) The translocator recharges steadily when used to a
maximum of five uses. It travels in the air faster than most
races can walk, so it is a valid method of travel to
fire it then translocate while walking.

 2) Translocating to your disc when an opponent is on top of
it results in their immediate death, regardless of
health and armor total. Telefrag!

 3) Many people don't use the camera.. it does have some
uses, however, but mainly when playing defense. Most
levels that have a translocator available have a "choke-
point" somewhere that the enemy has to pass to get to
your base. You can place this at your end of the choke
point and return to your flag/bombing gate and watch
through the camera. NOTE: The ability to re-use the camera
on a translocator by switching weapons to exit camera mode
and coming back was REMOVED in the patch.

 4) Shoot an enemy disc laying on ground until you see it start
sparking. If the enemy attempts to translocate into it then, they
die instantly and YOU are awarded the kill.

 5) Whatever momentum you have when you translocate is carried
over to where you translocate to. If your translocator is on
solid ground and you are falling from a LONG distance,
translocating to it will cause damage to you (normal falling
damage). The reverse is also true. Jumping and immediately
translocating will send you UP from the place you translocate to. Fire an

 6.10 BALL LAUNCHER
MANUAL DETAILS: A new addition to the Tournament, the Ball
Launcher is only available in Bombing Run Mode. Once you've
picked up the ball, the Ball Launcher is automatically
selected from your arsenal. While you're in possession of the
ball, you cannot use any other weapon. Pressing the Fire
button will launch the ball, either at another teammate for a
pass, or through the opposing team's goal.

PRIMARY FIRE: Launches the ball at the nearest bombing gate, or
to whomever you are locked onto.

SECONDARY FIRE: Locks onto an fellow teammate for passing with
the primary fire.

STARTING/MAX AMMO: Not applicable.

PLAYING TIPS:
 1) Teamwork is key in Bombing Run. While you can be
effective without it, two or more people working
together will totally destroy any people NOT working as
a team. Pass it back and forth!

 2) The carrier of the ball is granted massive regenerative
abilities. If near your own base, let a juggernaut carry
the ball (their massive life will keep them alive
longer). Have a faster race, such as the Automatons/Gen
Mo'Kai/Anubans/Mercenaries, move towards mid-field to
receive a pass when all of the opponent's team is trying
to kill the big juggernaut. This will generally result
in a score, especially when a Gen Mo'Kai receives the
pass with their amazing speed).

 6.11 BIORIFLE 2.0
MANUAL DETAILS: The GES BioRifle continues to be one of the most
controversial weapons in the Tournament. Loved by some,
loathed by others, the BioRifle has long been the subject of
debate over its usefulness. Some Tournament purists argue
that the delayed detonation of the mutagenic sludge, coupled
with the ability to quickly carpet an area with a highly
toxic substance, has reduced the weapon to the equivalent of
a minefield, a barbaric and cowardly weapon employed during
past human conflicts. Proponents of the weapon argue that it
enhances the tactical capabilities of defensive combatants,
allowing participants to cover multiple choke points more
efficiently. Despite the debate, the weapon remains
historically accurate, providing rapid-fire wide-area
coverage in primary firing mode, and a single-fire variable
payload secondary firing mode. In layman's terms, this
equates to being able to pepper an area with small globs of
Biosludge, or launch one large glob at the target,

PRIMARY FIRE: A quick, small glob of green sludge is shot forward
in an arc, sticking to whatever surface it hits (walls,
ceiling, floor, etc). It explodes in a small pop after two to
three seconds, damaging anyone nearby.

SECONDARY FIRE: Hold to prepare a super-charged sludge shot that
requires up to 10 ammo, depending on how long you charge it.
Release to expell a huge ball, that spreads on impact unless
it hits a player. Very painful.

STARTING/MAX AMMO: 20 start, 50 max

PLAYING TIPS:
 1) Like the assault rifle, you can charge the secondary
fire on this and have another weapon selected. When you
release the secondary, the game will automatically
change to the weapon you chose.

 2) Very easy to commit suicide with this gun. Be careful
not to be near the shots that don't hit an enemy when
they explode. For the faster moving targets, spray the
ground around their feet.

 3) When a target is hit by the BioRifle, whether primary or
alternate fire, they are sent flying (fly further from
secondary than primary). A good chance to change weapon
and finish the task.

 4) Due to the only character affinities being faster fire,
this weapon is not really a good choice for main weapon.
When you hit an enemy, it knocks them around, so you
need to re-aim after each successful shot anyway. Faster
fire will waste your ammo. Possible reason for lack of
ammo affinity is the sheer power of this gun...

 5) Try shooting at the exact same spot repeatedly. The sludge
collects in a pile and starts exploding everywhere, making an
effective mine field with the center shot doing excessive damage.

BERSERK DAMAGE: 60 primary, 346 secondary

DAMAGE: 30 damage primary direct hit, 166 secondary (full charge)

 AFFINITIES:
AMMO: Currently no characters with ammo affinity.
DAMAGE: Currently no characters with damage affinity.
FIRE RATE: Noticeably faster, but due to low ammo capacity,
you run out extremely fast.

 6.12 THE LINK
MANUAL DETAILS: The Link looks like a high-tech laser and is
similar to a Shock Rifle in its functionality, but delivers
less damage. This is more of a team weapon and it's real
power comes when used in a team. If this weapon is fired at a
teammate, it creates a link between the two for as long as
the firing player presses their fire button and as long as a
direct line of sight is maintained between the players. This
link will allow the linked player's weapon to do extra
damage, with a faster rate of fire. If another player is
added to the link, the firing rate will increase again, and
the beam will deal a devastating blow.

PRIMARY FIRE: A green projectile is shot forward at a fairly good
speed. Will push an enemy it hits slightly if they are on
ground, severely knocking them aside if in air.

SECONDARY FIRE: Holding the secondary fire will maintain a steady
green beam of energy that will damage any enemy it comes in
contact with. Will also 'link' with fellow teammates if they
are wielding the link gun at the same time. Once Link is
established, there is no distance limit as long as the line of
sight is clear between the two players.

STARTING/MAX AMMO: 40 start, 120 max

PLAYING TIPS:
 1) First of all, the main fire is not a narrow shot. Since
it has some width to it, stepping left and right when
firing is a very deadly tactic. This effectively creates
a wide spread area of danger for enemies. Firing in a
straight line makes this weapon easy to dodge, as the
projectile is NOT instant, but must travel from gun to
target. Plenty of time to side step at a mid to long
distance. But not close range.

 2) This weapon's true power really is in a team game. If
you have any doubts, get together with a friend and both
of you try the characters Romulus/Remus (humans with extra
link gun ammo). I'll explain EXACTLY what happens when
two or more link gun users work together.

  A) Damage multiplier. When the person being linked to
fires, they deal an addition 1x the normal
damage for each person linked to them.
Look below at the damage and then imagine this
multiplied. Keep in mind, ANY person being berserk
in a link affects the attacking person.

  B) Damage split. Basically it's a fraction. If there
are two people linked, assuming the shot that hits
one or the other isn't a lethal shot, the damage
is split half and half to both. If three people
are linked, if ANY one of them takes damage, all
three receive a third of it (noone receives the
FULL brunt of an attack). In my opinion, this is
why no juggernauts were given link gun affinities.
A shame, but a good call by DE.

  C) Ammo sharing. The person LINKING to someone else
will have their ammo used by the one who can
attack the enemies first. The person BEING linked
will not use their own ammo until all people
linked to him/her have ran out.

  D) The beam connecting any linked players is a weapon
as well. Use it! If you are fighting multiple
enemies, keep the beam steady between you and your
teammate, but run the connecting beam through as
many enemies as you can. It DOES hurt them!

 3) Note that berserk secondary beam has a higher multiplier
than berserk primary. Use it. It takes about 2 seconds
secondary fire to kill a freshly respawned juggernaut on
berserk. When playing with friends and someone is linked
with berserk.. death is almost instant for a juggernaut,
let alone anyone else.

 4) Nightmares + Team Link. This is more of an advanced
tactic, but a couple of Subversa's working together are
a beautiful thing to see. If they take turns linking
each other and dishing out the damage.. They already
have damage affinities, plus a 1x added into it, with
the life gain when dealing damage.. Mmmm-hmmm. Nice stuff.
Sadly, the life gain isn't shared like the damage loss is
among link members, but that's alright. They just take
turns and it's sooooooooooooo sweet. Don't bother with this
if link-gun medic is on.

 5) If you have good aim, use the secondary fire on jumpers.
This will throw them around in mid air BADLY. You can catch
someone in a corner indoors with it and keep them plastered to
the ceiling until they die. Charge a secondary shot from AR,
have it ready to switch to link gun, and when it throws the target
up into the air, pin them there. Not really a useful strategy
against good players, but fun to do anyway.

 6) Link gun medic mutator. If BOTH players are using the link gun,
it's free healing. When you fight, be sure the person with the most
shield/life is NOT the attacker. During the few seconds between a
fight, you should heal your partner (they should QUIT linking with
you AFTER they have already healed you). The best tactic with this
mutator is to take turns being "point" position. It increases
efficiency. An nigh unstoppable tactic: Person in link's attack
position berserks, person at END of link gun chain regenerates.
If there is someone in the middle (3 or more link gunners together)
they are being healed anyway and don't need it. 

 7) Conserve ammo. If the enemy is far away with plenty of area to
move, don't use the primary fire. Go secondary. When they are 
close, or in a long narrow spot, cover the entire area from wall to
wall with primary fire. The shots have width, so you WILL hit them.
In team games, NEVER use up all your ammo if you have a friend
working with you. Communicate with them. When your friend linking
you is down to about 10 or less ammo, switch places. Then he'll use
YOUR ammo and keep his 10, but you continue to share damage while
dishing out more, as well as the faster rate of fire.

 8) If you would like to see how truly powerful a team of link
gun users are, read section 11.8 Linking 3 or More Players

BERSERK DAMAGE: 46 primary, 22 secondary

DAMAGE: 23 primary, 9 secondary (4.3 seconds steady stream does
190 damage or more)

 AFFINITIES:

8. SPECIES INFORMATION

 8.1 GEN MO'KAI
MANUAL GUIDE: Faster and more agile than their human
counterparts, the lithe Gen Mo'Kai lack the vitality of
robust opponents like the Juggernauts. They more than
compensate for this handicap with their ability to distance
themselves from the enemy with great haste.

STARTING HEALTH: 80
JUMPING: 3/10
RUNNING: 8/10

BONUSES: Super speed, gives them amazing maneuverability when
feet are on the ground

 8.2 AUTOMATONS
MANUAL GUIDE: Lightning-fast reflexes and a powerful synthetic
musculature allow Automatons to jump higher and dodge faster
than any other race in the arena. Limitations in the
gyroscopic stabilizers require that jumping maneuvers have
decreased horizontal motion, in order to ensure a stable
landing.

STARTING HEALTH: 110
JUMPING: 8/10
RUNNING: 5/10

BONUSES: Superior jumping ability makes them hard to keep an eye
          on or keep up with

 8.3 MERCENARIES
MANUAL GUIDE: Somewhat more rugged than their earthly
counterparts, the Mercs of the 7th Fleet suffer from none of
the vulnerabilities that make their opponents easier targets.

STARTING HEALTH: 120
JUMPING: 4/10
RUNNING: 5/10

BONUSES: No bonuses or maluses.

 8.4 JUGGERNAUTS
MANUAL GUIDE: Hampered by the bulk of their genetically boosted
physiques, the Juggernauts move ponderously through the
arenas, shrugging off enemy fire as if it were a mere
annoyance. They may not be fast, but they tend to keep coming
long after others have retreated to lick their wounds.

STARTING HEALTH: 190
JUMPING: 1/10
RUNNING: 2/10

BONUSES: High life makes them harder to kill, giving them time to
dish out damage.

 8.5 ANUBANS
MANUAL GUIDE: The Anubans carry with them a long-standing
tradition of acrobatic maneuvering and stimulant use in
battle, possibly inherited from the ceremonial combat rooted
deep in their planet's history. Deemed showoffs by some, they
have shown their prowess repeatedly by using their unique
skills to navigate even the most treacherous arenas safely.
Because of their unique affinity for stimulants, their bodies
absorb the adrenaline ampules with considerably more
efficiency than other races. 

STARTING HEALTH: 85
JUMPING: 6/10
RUNNING: 6/10

BONUSES: Get 15 adrenaline for every two pills instead of 10. Get
15 adrenaline per kill instead of 10. 

 8.6 NIGHTMARE
MANUAL GUIDE: The pleasure these foul creatures derive from the
pain of their wounded enemies triggers the release of
powerful regenerative drugs secreted from their heavily-
modified glandular systems. The more pain they inflict, the
harder they become to kill.

STARTING HEALTH: 70
JUMPING: 2/10
RUNNING: 3/10

BONUSES: Gain 50% of all damage dealt as life. Can go over
starting health with this ability to their race max of 140
(no need for health powerups, vials, etc).

 8.7 CHARACTER AFFINITIES
  8.7a AMMO (A): Doubles normal ammo capacity of preferred weapon

Nightmare)



10. PLAYING THE GAME
 10.1 USING THE TAUNTS/ORDERS MENU EFFECTIVELY
DEATHMATCH: When you press the taunts/orders button in a
Deathmatch game, a taunt is automatically sent. No menu
appears.

TEAM DEATHMATCH: In this mode, a menu pops up with three options
in it. Freelance, Follow, and Taunt. Freelance orders any
bots to do whatever they want. Follow orders a bot to follow
you around and provide support to you. Taunt sends a taunt
just as in Deathmatch mode. To choose a command, after
bringing up the menu, press the button shown beside the
command you want.

 A) Issuing a follow/freelance order will only apply to ONE
bot. To get 2, 3, etc bots to follow you or stop
following, you must issue the command multiple times.

 B) The follow command can be more harm than good at times.
Bots have a tendency to crowd together following you,
making them an easy target to an explosive attack for
multiple kills. If you engage in combat with someone or
see someone coming towards you, fall back within the ranks
of the bots following you. Think of yourself as scout
leader for the squad, not as a solo player. When you find
an enemy, retreat and ambush.

 C) Never order Novice level bots to follow you. They have a
huge speed malus, as well as a damage cap to what they can
deal. A headshot from the lightning gun from a bot is 30
damage.. the chances of a Novice bot landing a headshot
are very rare, so expect to take 15 damage total from a
Novice bot with an LG. The fact they move so slow and in a
group will get them slaughtered like cattle.

SURVIVAL: Same as Deathmatch.

CAPTURE THE FLAG: Four commands are available. Freelance, Attack,
Defend, and Taunt. Taunt is always the same, as is Freelance.
Attack orders a bot to attempt to get the other team's flag.
If someone on your team is carrying the flag, attack actually
orders bots to defend the one with the flag. Defend orders
bots to stay near the base and protect the flag, or chase any
opponent carrying your flag.

 A) Try to order juggernauts to defend and fast races to
attack.

 B) If someone has your flag and you are at your base waiting
to score, order all bots to defend. This will send them in
search of YOUR flag as a TEAM together. If some bots are
on attack and some on defend, order them all to attack
first so they gather around you, THEN order them all to
defend. The reasoning is to ensure they hunt for the flag
together, increasing their chances of a successful return
without dieing. However, keep in mind that trying to team
a juggernaut and Gen Mo'Kai together is a bad idea, as the
juggernaut will fall far behind in the hunt.

BOMBING RUN: Same commands as Capture the Flag, but with Attack
and Defend having slightly different results. Ordering a bot
to defend makes them stay near your team's gate and attempt
to kill any enemy that comes near it. Attack has them seek
out the ball carrier and kill them, or try to get the ball
into the enemies gate for a score.

 A) Ordering bots to attack is not a good idea. Running the
ball through the goal and shooting it gives different
amounts of points, so it's better to try for a run through
it.

DOUBLE DOMINATION: Freelance and Taunt commands are here also,
with Attack and Defend being replaced by Attack A and Attack
B. Use these to tell a bot which point to attack/defend. Once
they've takena  point they switch to defend mode and stay
there guarding it til they die, then they attack it again.

 A) Bots follow a pattern that becomes ridiculously easy.
First, order all bots on your team to attack the same
place, then you attack the other. If it's extremely hard
to take the side you're after, order the bots to try and
take it and you attempt the other side. The enemy bots
seem to be "Assigned" a point to take. They go straight
for that point. If two are assigned the same point, one
will stay to defend once it is captured, and the other
attempts to take the alternate point. If both points are
controlled and defended, the bot goes into Freelance and
will head towards an enemy to kill, or their spawn point.
Basically, find the side with the least bots that will
come to it, and if you're unsure of you're skill, defend
it. Have your team bots take the other.

 10.2 SINGLE PLAYER CAMPAIGN
Basically, you have to fight your way through Seven team battles,
increasing in amount of players (bots) in each of 4 game modes.
Team Deathmatch, Capture the Flag, and Double Domination, and
Bombing Run. At the end, Survival mode is unlocked and you must
defeat your entire team, 1 by 1, all in a row, on the level
Gael.

When you win the third game of Team Deathmatch, CTF is
unlocked. After winning the third CTF, Double Dom is unlocked.
After the third Double Dom is won, Bombing Run is unlocked.
	
 10.3 OFFLINE MULTIPLAY
A good place to play with friends, simply press start on any
extra controllers plugged in to go to splitscreen mode. The
new player will be prompted to choose a profile to use
(cannot create a new one from here, must choose an existing
one) and then will begin just like normal. You may also
select 'Random', which will choose a character (from all
characters in the game, not just the profiles) at random. Up
to four people may play on one Xbox at a time.

 10.4 XBOX LINK PLAY
As stated far above in section 3.2 of this Guide:
After loading a profile, select System Link from the main menu.
The screen that comes up will have a list of all games being
hosted with available room. If none are listed, you can host
one.

 10.5 XBOX LIVE PLAY
First, you need to get an Xbox Live Starter Kit if you haven't
already. After creating your account, choose Play Live from
the main menu. From the new screen, you'll choose your
account (or to create a New Account). An "Authenticating"
message will appear while you sign on and it checks to make
sure none of your hardware or software has been modified,
then you go to the Live menu.

  10.5a QUICK MATCH
MANUAL GUIDE: Search for any server available to play on.

  10.5b OPTIMATCH
MANUAL GUIDE: Set specific server options to search for, such as
specific game types, number of players, etc.

  10.5c CREATE MATCH
MANUAL GUIDE: Set up a server for others to connect to online.

  10.5d FRIENDS
MANUAL GUIDE: Look for friends online.

NOTE: Add friends in game by pressing start, go to Players,
highlight the person's name, and press A to bring up a list
of options (Send Friend Request, Mute, Send Feedback). A
person's gamertag will be in parentheses beside their
profile's name. You can also look at the player's list to see
who is talking, or who that annoying sound you are hearing is
coming from. When sound is received from someone, a small
icon appears next to the speaker beside their profile to
indicate noise reception. Good for muting heavy breathers,
annoying people, those with music or TV too loud, or sending
feedback on spammers, cursers, people harassing you, etc.

  10.5e STATISTICS
MANUAL GUIDE: Check out your Xbox Live ranking, compared to other
Unreal Championship Live players. Your ranking and score are
available for each game-type. Points are calculated based on
items such, game specific goals, kills, suicides, etc.

NOTE: Press the X button to cycle through Weekly, Monthly, and
Total stats for each gametype. Press the A button to ccess
info on the account highlighted. Kills are how many kills,
deaths is how many times you've died, and points is your
total score (suicides count as -1 point and a death,
switching teams while ALIVE is -1 point and a death).
Specials are any kills you have made through headshots with
the lightning gun, shock rifle combo explosions, and killing
someone from landing on top of them (this deals damage).

  10.5f SETTINGS
MANUAL GUIDE: Set voice-masking options and online visibility.

NOTE: The settings has all the same options as the settings from
the game's Main Menu (see section 4 of this Guide), with the
addition of a Live option added at the bottom. From the Live
menu, there are two things to set, which the manual
mentioned. You can choose to appear as offline to friends
(although you can still receive or send invites), and Voice
masking. To test what you sound like, you can speak into the
headset while the Voice mask option is highlighted. Press
left and right to switch among them and see what each one
sounds like to everyone else.

  10.5g CONTENT DOWNLOAD
MANUAL GUIDE: Select this option to check for recent content
updates!

NOTE: As of May 22nd on 2003, four new maps became available.
Deathmatch: AquaMortis, Inferno, Leviathan B
Capture the Flag: Otaros Run

 10.6 VOICE CHANNEL MENU
Press the button to bring up the voice menu in a game (default is
Back button). There will be six channels listed. Depending on
whether the game is a team game or not, the channels listed
will be different. Team games have nine channels, non-team
games have six. There is a limit of four people on any
channel at a time. In non team games, there is simply
channels one through six. In team games, there are three Red
channels, three Blue channels, and 3 neutral channels. Red
team members cannot normally access Blue channels, nor vice
versa. For one team to talk to the other, they must both be
on a neutral channel. There IS a bug where when you join a
game, you are assigned a team and the lowest available open
channel before you actually press fire to spawn. If you
switch teams before spawning, your channel will NOT change.
This allows you to be on the other team's channel. Not really
much use.

To change a channel, press the button shown beside the channel in
the list.

 10.7 USING MUTATORS
When choosing the map in any game type, press the X button to go
into settings. Press X again from there to access the Mutator
settings. You can enable or disable a mutator by pressing the A
button while it is highlighted. The Arena mode is the only
mutator with extra options (also accessed by pressing X when
highlighted). When done with anything, press B to return to the
previous menu. When ready to begin the game, just select the
map and continue like normal. For simple strategies, check
section 12 of this Guide (incomplete at this time).



11. GAMEPLAY TIPS
 11.1 DODGING
HOW TO: Using the directional pad (default setup), press any
direction twice quickly. You'll "dodge" in that direction.
It's a short leap that doesn't go very high, but covers
distance quickly.

 11.2 DODGE JUMPING
HOW TO: Combine the dodging technique with a jump. Dodge first,
then jump in mid air. The race that best utilizes this is the
automatons. Even a Gen Mo'Kai can be hard pressed to outrun
an automaton dodge jumping effectively. Other races can use
it as well for a small speed boost, but will not find it as
effective.

 11.3 CONTROLLER SCHEMES
HOW TO: Go into the settings menu, and into controller settings.
From there, you can edit the commands assigned to each button
(press X to go to customize, then press Up/Down to select
button, Left/Right to cycle through commands available).

  11.3a DODGE/DODGE JUMPING SETUP:
Y Button -      Move Forward
A Button -      Move Back
X Button -      Strafe Left
B Button -      Strafe Right
D. Pad Up -     Taunts/Orders
D. Pad Left -   Stats
D. Pad Right -  Scoreboard
D. Pad Down -   Best Weapon
White Button -  Prev Weapon
Black Button -  Next Weapon

 11.4 WALL JUMPING
HOW TO: Jump towards a wall, then press the opposite direction
and jump again. Better method is jump into a wall, then DODGE off it.
You can double jump before going into a wall to get massive distance
away from the wall quickly. Or you can jump into a wall, dodge off it,
then jump again in the middle of the dodge to perform a dodge jump from
the wall. Robots can do incredible things in the proper places.

 11.5 ELEVATOR JUMPING
HOW TO: When stepping onto an elevator, jump! This will send you
flying high. The best use of this in Deathmatch, Team
Deathmatch, and Survival is on the level Compressed.
Juggernauts and Nightmares find this most useful, as they can
catch the outer edge of the elevators on the very bottom
floor, and jump to the third floor. Very good for escaping
combat, or jumping right into the middle of it. As an
automaton, on levels such as Antalus, a well timed jump can
almost put you into orbit on open levels, giving you a great
view of the area below you. Very good way to obtain recon data
for when you land.

 11.6 ADRENALINE ABILITIES
HOW TO: Increase the adrenaline count in top right corner by
picking up pills, or killing opponents (in some game modes,
scoring points by game objectives gives adrenaline as well).
When it reaches 100, enter any of the follow four commands to
activate the ability:

REGENERATION - Down, Down, Down
BERSERK - Up, Up, Up
INVISIBILITY - Right, Right, Left, Left
AGILITY - Down, Down, Up

DEFINITIONS

Regeneration - Regenerates health and shield strength to a
maximum of 150 shield, and twice starting health (the only
way to go over 199 health; Juggernauts can regenerate up to
380 health, but even with 199 health when they activate
regenerate, unless they make a kill or pick up extra
adrenaline, they will only get up to 349 when it wears off)

Berserk - Increases damage dealt per shot as well as rate of
fire; any damage taken while berserk is reduced by 50%.

Invisibility - Often confused as invincibility, it is NOT that.
Invisibility simply renders you invisible. However, at a
closer range, your outline can still be seen, especially when
moving. Also note that bots can see you from miles away when
invisible! I mean to the point where it's a glitch; if you
hide behind a corner panel while invisible a bot may walk
past, and immediately turn and fire on you. Yet if you hide
there when NOT invisible, the bot may very well walk on by.
Beware using invisibility when bots are on godlike
difficulty. They will tear through you like an angry cat
through a wet paper bag. NEVER use invisibility in single
player campaign. Quite pointless.

Agility - Increases your running and jumping capabilities. VERY
noticeable if the character already has a high rating in one
of the two already. An agility powered juggernaut is not all
that useful, for example, as they don't jump much higher nor
run much faster...

 11.7 CHARACTER SELECTION
HOW TO: Basically, try playing Instant Action with competition
mode on against skilled difficulty bots on the level
Asbestos. It has all weapons, so you can try them all to see
which you enjoy most or are best with. Then turn off
competition mode and choose a race that best suits your
playing style, and has the weapon with an affinity you want.
If you like to walk in and slug out heavy damage and keep
going, see if a juggernaut has the weapon you enjoy. If you
would rather be fast, try a Gen Mo'Kai, agile jumpers is
Anubans, distance/height jumpers is automatons, etc. Play a
bit to find what you are really good at. If you hurt yourself
alot with the rocket launcher but are still good with it,
playing the Nightmare Mr. Crow probably isn't a good idea (70
starting health, rockets with extra damage). I would foresee
lots of suicides in your future.

 11.8 LINKING 3 OR MORE PLAYERS
Alright, the way the damage split works with the link is Very
complicated (I don't know everything yet, but I have found a way
to abuse it to your benefit). If you don't like math, you won't
like this. Just do Setup 2 below and trust it's best. However,
math is my favorite subject and I must explain! ;)

First, let's establish the following based on three people with
link guns:
Setup 1 - Person B and C link directly to A
Setup 2 - C links to B, B links to A

In Setup 1, everyone takes 33% of the damage. This is BAD.

In Setup 2, Person A takes 33% of the damage, person B and C take
33% of whatever A took. This drastically reduces the damage an
opponent can do altogether (on TOP of splitting damage, it even
REDUCES the amount taken!).

Let me elaborate with an example:
Person A is shot with the link gun while Setup 2 is going on. The
damage is divided 3 ways (rounded down with no remainder). That is
23 divided by 3. That's 6 with 5 damage left over (not gonna confuse
you with decimals/fractions). The extra five is immediately discarded
because it is simply not divisible by the amount of people in the
link. Now, person A immediately takes that six damage, and here is
where it gets good. For some reason, the damage split is recalculated
AGAIN for player B.  Three people in the link divides the damage to 2
per person - However, player A has already taken damage and receives
no more. The remaining players in the link take their 33% damage each
- a grand total of 2 damage a piece. Now, if you add all this damage
up, you get (2+2+6) ten. So a weapon that would normally hit you for
23 damage if you were alone is so far reduced in a group of three
chain-linked people to become barely noticeable. Whew! Think on that!

 More Info
 ---- ----
The best thing is a group of four (more is always better, but four
will be most common - ie, 4vs4 clan match; however, I won't explain
beyond four). Do NOT all link to one person. Two people should NEVER
be linked to the same person. It will happen, of course, but try to
avoid it as much as possible. To take advantage of the damage reduction,
the links must form a chain. Four players (A, B, C, and D) connected
Like D-->C-->B-->A will cut back damage immensely. Player A gets hit
with a Lightning gun shot (from someone without damage affinity) so he
would take 60. This is reduced to 15 for each player. Player takes 15.
Now that 15 is divided by 4 again. That leaves 3 damage with 3 leftover
(the extra three is discarded summarily). Player B takes 3 damage.
Player C and D take no damage, because 3 damage is not divisible by four
members in the link. (Note that this is because there is FOUR people in
the chain total - three would be 20 damage to A, with 6 to B and C.


12. GAME STRATEGIES  ** SECTION INCOMPLETE **

 12.1 GENERAL STRATEGIES
  12.1a PERSONAL STRATEGIES
SHIELD GUN: Use it. Alot. Among ticking people off, it can save your
skin frequently. Shield gun is a shock rifle users worst enemy.
Switch back and forth among your weapons, be good with what you use.
If you play as Damarus, use the BioRifle secondary fire: charge a shot,
keep it charged, and select the shield gun. The moment you release the
goop at someone, hold the secondary fire again to have your shield up.
Then just run around a corner and repeat the process. Will you win a
large game of deathmatch this way? No. Very effective in small ones
though. Shield guns will block rockets, grenades, and flak cannon
explosions so long as they hit the shield from the front or the ground
in FRONT of you. These explosions will also drain your shield strength
ENOURMOUSLY.

GUERILLA WARFARE: If your weapon is a slow firing weapon, don't run out
in the middle of a battlefield trying to kill people with it. This example
is primarily targeted towards the lightning gun, as it is my best weapon.
On Flux 2, most of the fighting occurs on the lower floor indoors, at the
end that has three doors and the minigun. Lightning gun users should never
run around ON that floor for long, as your rate of fire is simply far too
slow to be effective, and you have too much area you need to keep covered
with fire. Someone else is going to come in and kill you, eventually (being
berserk is different, sometimes). Try and run up the steps to the middle
floor, shooting at people; this will keep a wall behind you so you don't
have to worry about someone coming from behind. Jump down from there to the
dip in the middle of the floor where the two health packs are. Since the
ground is at a lower height, it's easier to shoot people in the legs, feet,
and torso who are on the slightly higher ground. It is far harder for them
to aim Just a little bit down at you. Repeat the process, running back and
forth, never staying on one level too long. And don't run through the
middle. Stay near a wall, but far enough away you can dodge the splash
damage of a rocket/flak grenade exploding behind you on that wall. Get
behind the corners of the wall, the little pillars on the middle floor, the
cover a ledge offers from those on lower ground, etc, right after firing a
shot. Feel free to run out kamikaze style if you are low on ammo, however,
as dieing is a good way to restock your weapon.
NOTE: This is not meant as a one-level strategy. Take the above, adapt it to
your weapon of choice (weapons like miniguns can't really use it; this is
for slower weapons), adapt it to the level you are on!

ROCKET USE/CONSERVATION:
 1) Triple rockets are a complete waste on any race but juggernauts. Only two
rockets is required to kill any other race, one when berserk. When you are
not the host, rockets lock on fast. All you have to do is keep the target
close to your reticle for a few seconds. Get them near the reticle, then
start loading rockets with secondary fire. When you get a lock, release to
fire! You should generally shoot two homing rockets, but sometimes it will
turn into three, or be too soon and only get one. No worries. Try again.
 2) When locking on in an open area or on someone at a higher elevation than
you, look up quickly before firing the rockets after establishing a lock.
This will cause the rockets to arc upwards and back down at the enemy, making
them far harder to dodge. If they don't hit, the splash damage WILL. If the
person is on higher ground, this will cause the rockets to get further up
before going after the target - preventing the usual case where the enemy can
step back so the rockets explode on the wall/slant/ledge they are standing
on.
 3) Splash damage is a beast. Rockets bounce people around when exploding
near them, and throws them much farther if they are in the air (jumping).
For non-robots, generally never waste time locking onto people who are close
to you. Robots, if the ceiling is high enough, can lock onto close people,
jump, then look down at the same time to fire the rockets. In either case,
the best thing to do is switch to primary fire and blast the ground around
the enemy. If they start backpedaling, jump and aim for the ground directly
behind them just a little. They will try to side step it, but will take
splash damage regardless. If they don't sidestep, they should take a full
bodily hit from the rocket. KEY PART: Aim for the ground where the target's
feet Will be.

CONTROL MAP RESOURCES
This one is real easy to do. Take everything you, and in the case of having
a teammate(s), don't need. In Deathmatch mode, if you are at 150 armor,
shoot a rocket slightly in front of you to hurt yourself and grab the shield
pack. Or use the shield gun to hurt yourself (charge primary, tap secondary
while charging). No need to let someone else have it. Grab adrenaline even
if you have 100. Guard the adrenaline spots. At 100% game speed, double
damage and the super shield come back exactly 80 seconds after being picked
up. If you have a good sense of timing, you can be in place to nab them
every time they come back, or to kill the person(s) going for them. If you
have no armor and are at full health (and not over it, just at your STARTING
full health), then do the same as for a shield pack. Hurt yourself and take
it. Don't let someone else. Hog everything, or share with your teammates,
but keep it AWAY from the enemy.


  12.1b SUBMITTED STRATEGIES
Shield Gun vs Shock Rifle: When playing against someone armed with
a shock rifle and you're desperate, switch to the shield gun.
Engage the secondary fire. When your opponent uses the shock
rifle's secondary fire, DODGE forward (NOT dodge jump) with your
shield gun's secondary fire on. The result, if done correctly, will
be that the shield will have bounced the ball back toward the person
who fired it. It is also best used against some one who is not using
a character with a shock rifle w/ firing rate affinity.
 -Submitted by Randall Stephens
 -Author Notes: Have seen this happen once by someone else, and done it once
  myself. If the shockball kills anyone (whether hitting them or being
  exploded) after bouncing off of your shield, YOU get the kill. Quite nifty
  actually. Thanks Randall!



 12.2 DEATHMATCH
AGAINST BOTS: Don't use invisibility. Due to what I would call
bad scripting, bots get perfect knowledge of you and your
location if you go invisible. Unless you can outrun your
opponents, berserk isn't that good to use either. Bots will
automatically turn around and run the other way, even if they
can't see (remember, bots are all-knowing, since they ARE the
computer).

AGAINST PEOPLE: Berserk is great. People don't play like bots.
They have a tendency to throw themselves at unbeatable odds.
Berserking shock rifle users are tough to fight. Hence, I
don't fight them. I go to shield gun and back away, let them
blow their ammo and their berserk. This ticks people off to
NO END. I love it. They get so mad they mess up and become
easy to kill. Do the same against LG users, and flak cannons.
I've made several people commit suicide with the flak cannon
off my shield (secondary explosion). Agility isn't that good unless
AA is off. Regeneration is very useful, but only if you are a robot,
juggernaut, or human. Anubans can make use if it too, but
they can reach their max health (170) without it. Generally,
regeneration is good for races that can go over 199 life.

 12.3 TEAM DEATHMATCH
AGAINST BOTS: Bots always work in a group. The only time this is
really a problem is on Godlike, and certain combination of
bots on Masterful. In those situations, you'll want to order
all your bots to follow you. Get used to cheap shots from
bots on Godlike. They always know where you are, at all
times. Best thing you can do is find a way to kill them from
a distance. Bots ALWAYS seem to have a flak cannon, even
after freshly respawning. If you get within 10ft or so,
they'll switch to flak and rush you, killing you with a point
blank primary fire (the most damaging weapon in the a
Deathmatch, and even Novice bots don't miss point blank).
Also, this knowledge applies to ANY bots on ANY game type.

AGAINST PEOPLE: Two or three people working together as a TEAM
can defeat anything. They will take casualties, of course,
but will most likely come out on top. Various strategies to
use are combinations of weapons that compliment each other.
Two people with shock rifles is dangerous together. One can
fire shock balls at the enemy while the other does the
exploding of the ones actually near the opponent. Takes some
practice working together, but once they have it down...
Another thing is someone with the biorifle following another
person. Believe it or not, biorifles + miniguns are deadly.
Being shot by the minigun severely limits your
maneuverability, and this gives the BioRifler plenty of time
to pepper the ground around the target (if not the target
itself). Work together, that's all there is to it. Travel in
groups of two or more...

 12.4 SURVIVAL
AGAINST BOTS: You can either wittle them down or try and rush-
kill them. Either way, bots will turn and run when low on
health. Playing Gael on Godlike against a lightning bot is
basically asking to be slaughtered. Bots react faster than
you do, so be careful going around corners. You can fire an
area of effect around it first, since it doesn't matter if
you give an early warning to bots. They react same speed
anyway.

AGAINST PEOPLE: Invisibility is the most often used adrenaline
power in Survival. Other people get to watch you when they aren't
playing, so they know the general area of where you will be
when they spawn. If not playing insta-gib, use the ability to
charge a biorifle secondary shot and have another weapon
ready to switch to. The biorifle damage will kill any but a
juggernaut if it hits, and you'll be ready to start blasting
with another weap.

 12.5 CAPTURE THE FLAG

 12.6 BOMBING RUN
AGAINST BOTS: When the team with the bots has the ball, the bots
will attempt to spawn camp. Go figure. When the other team has the
ball, bots will almost totally ignore anyone else. They'll attack
people who come to close, but otherwise, just keeps going towards
the ball carrier.

 12.7 DOUBLE DOMINATION
AGAINST BOTS: I've found a very useful tactic for this (you can
see it easily on the level Fridge). Play like normal until
you get to 100 adrenaline, then when you control both points,
turn on berserk and head towards the bot's spawn points.
They'll go a diffrent route (the long way) around to the
point you are coming from, which is enough time to score. Use
this tactic in other applications.
