-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I've seen many a topic on the message board, demanding help on a Challenge or 
Arcade League match. There have been FAQs for the Arcade League mode and the 
Challenge mode separately, but none for the Challenge mode and the Arcade 
League mode together. So, now you have one.

                               Information
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: Those Russian soldiers aren't that bright! Today's military training 
involves breaking all the glass in the Siberian compound. Nikolai managed this 
in one minute flat. Beat his time or you'll be the laughing stock of the 
barracks for weeks!

Character: Lt. Frost

Level: Siberia (Outside)

Bronze: 1:00.0     Silver: 0:00.30     Gold: 0:18.0     Platinum: 0:11.0

Rewards: Rotating Heads (Cheat)

                                Strategy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
There are a few variations to get a good time here. I'll be relating mine. From 
the start, run to the small stairs and strafe up them. Fire a grenade at the 
windows near the metal stairs. Fire two grenades in the top floor windows of 
the large building. One should bounce to the back and destroy the door window. 
The other should stay near the windows. It will destroy the top floor and 
bottom floor windows. Run between the small building behind you (the one that 
has a Med Kit in Golden Thighs) and the lower dam area. Fire a grenade through 
its windows so that it takes those four out. Run along the edge until you get 
to the area between the two small buildings on the edge. Fire a grenade through 
its window and get those four. Run between the buildings, fire a grenade      
through the last door, and let it take the other windows out.


                            ---Bricking it---

                               Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: After Private Poorly's incident with a grenade yesterday, all 
ammunition has been confiscated until further notice. This is no excuse to miss 
training though, so you'll have to improvise!

Character: Lt. Frost

Level: Siberia (Outside)

Bronze: 1:30.0     Silver: 0:45.0     Gold: 0:35.0     Platinum: 0:27.9

Rewards: Brick (Weapon)

                                Strategy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You'll have to be quick and nearly perfect to do this well. From the start, 
immediately run up the small stairs. Throw bricks and knock out all of the top 
floor and bottom floor windows on the large building. Run down the side, hit 
the three windows near the stairs, and then go up the stairs. Hit the window on 
the door, and then drop down to the side of the small building. Hit its 
windows, then the door, and then move to the small building near the entrance. 
Hit its door and windows, then move to the last building. Hit the windows as 
you approach. When you are destroying the last windows, try to throw a brick so 
that it hits the door window as well. It takes a little practice, though.


                           ---Stain Removal---

                               Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: The life of a zombie would be far more pleasant if it weren't for the 
Hunchback spoiling the Wednesday morning sacrifices. Get your own back on him, 
and knock out as many stained glass windows as you can within the time limit.

Character: Undead Priest

Level: Notre Dame (Upper)

Bronze: 23     Silver: 28     Gold: 32     Platinum: 32 & 0:47.9

Rewards: The Hunchback (Character)

                                Strategy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As soon as the match starts, back pedal to either side. As you do, shoot the 
three lower windows near where you start. Look up as you go and take out the 
windows as you strafe by. Use incendiary grenades to take out the far windows 
and the ones in the side cavities. As soon as you shoot all the glass, run 
around to the other side and repeat the process.

                     ---Fight Off the Living Dead---

                               Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: Another one of Khallos' attempts to take over the world has failed at 
the hands of Harry Tipper. As usual, Khallos has fled the scene, leaving a 
henchman to deal with the consequences (lots of zombies in this case). See how 
long you can keep him alive for...

Character: Henchman

Level: Compound

Bronze: 10,000     Silver: 15,000     Gold: 20,000     Platinum: 145,000

Rewards: Sewer Zombie (Character)

                                Strategy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This takes more patience and endurance than skill. You can try punching the 
zombies during the first few waves, as punching them will net you 100 points a 
hit, while shooting them only gets you 75. If you're not good at punching, 
though, just shoot them, and try to get Perfect ratings for the first four or 
five waves. Know the starting patterns. After the first few waves, two zombies 
will always start in the lower right room, then one will come from the left 
hallway, then they'll do it once again before the main swarm arrives. Grab the 
Shotgun as soon as you need the ammo. When the room starts to get crowded, 
circle around, shooting them. Don't get trapped in corners, and always use the 
crosshairs; they guarantee a head shot.


                        ---Sergio's Last Stand---

                               Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: The last act performed at the circus tonight, this will star our very 
own Sergio the Strongman. We feel privileged to welcome our guests, a time 
traveling troupe of flaming zombies. Ladies and gentlemen, put your hands 
together for Sergio's Last Stand!

Character: Sergio

Level: Circus

Bronze: 5,000     Silver: 15,000     Gold: 25,000     Platinum: 35,000

Rewards: Sergio (Character)

                                Strategy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As with Fight Off the Living Dead, use your crosshairs for guaranteed head 
shots. Also make use of the quick switch to instantly reload your 12-Guage. As 
soon as the math starts, run behind either post and grab the fire extinguisher 
on the ground. If you catch fire at any time, simply arm the fire extinguisher, 
point it at the ground, and fire it until you're extinguished. The same basic 
strategy from Fight Off the Living Dead applies here. Don't be afraid to stray 
from the area to avoid damage, but don't get counted out.


                         ---Day of the Damned---

                               Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: It looks rather like curiosity got the better of Nikolai. Gunshots or 
no gunshots, he'd have been better off steering clear of the research center 
altogether, and he should definitely have taken his gun. Keep him alive for as 
long as you can, using just his fists!

Character: Nikolai

Level: Siberia (Inside)

Bronze: 10,000     Silver: 15,000     Gold: 20,000     Platinum: 25,000

Rewards: Feeder Zombie (Character)

                                Strategy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The first few waves are pretty tame. Try to clear the first few waves with 
Perfect ratings. Once things pick up. You'll want to constantly spin your view, 
since monsters appear on all sides of you. Going out of the area is okay, but 
try to go through open panes if possible, since jumping through glass hurts 
you. If the area gets crowded, run around the outer area. The zombies will 
damage each other. Whenever you hear them getting hurt, jump in and knock a few 
heads off, then continue circling the area. You won't get points as quickly 
this way, but you'll last longer.



                            +--------------+
                       -----| Infiltration |-----

                        ---Silent but Deadly---

                               Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: Even highly dangerous mercenaries like Gregor Lenko need to use 
stealth when outnumbered. Destroy the radar and enter the dam, without being 
detected by any of the Russian guards.

Character: Gregor Lenko

Level: Siberia (Outside)

Bronze: 0     Silver: 700     Gold: 1,000     Platinum: 1,000 & 0:39.9

Rewards: Viking (Hat)

                                Strategy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A couple of tips first: if you don't hit a guard in the head, restart; try and 
use only one shot to knock out the camera. From the start, run up and grab the 
Silenced Pistol and Sniper Rifle. Aim up toward the guard on the railing before 
you switch to your scope. Take out the guard and the camera. Slide left a 
little and shoot the guard that patrols between the buildings. Move forward and 
left until you see the female guard. Shoot her, and then run through the fence. 
Run toward the metal stairs. As soon as you see the guard between the stairs, 
take your shot. Run up the stairs and activate the switch in the building. Run 
across the bridge to the hole in the ceiling. When you fall in, activate the 
door, then back up and grab the mines. Run out the door and around the left 
corner. As soon as you pass under the wooden plank, throw a mine up at the 
dish. Switch to the Temporal Uplink. Run right up under the camera, then along 
the side of the small building on your right. Run down the stairs and into the 
dam.


                        ---Trouble at the Docks---

                               Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: It's 3am and a new shipment has just arrived by barge, so there are 
goons crawling all over the docks! If you want to get through the Falucci Bros. 
warehouse alive, particular care will be needed.

Character: Lady Jane

Level: Chicago (Beginning)

Bronze: 0     Silver: 700     Gold: 1,000     Platinum: 1,000 & 0:24.9

Rewards: Pirate (Hat)

                                Strategy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Strafe right, and then jump off the ladder to the left. Kill the guard, then 
turn right and get off the barge. Go up the stairs and peek around the corner. 
As soon as the guard turns his back, run up the stairs. Hug the right wall at 
the top, and then go around the corner. Kill the guard at the top of the 
stairs, and then run down the stairs. If you're fortunate, the last guard will 
have his back to you. Shoot him, and then run out the door.


                      ---Escape from Neo Tokyo---

                               Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: It's late past curfew, and Chastity Detroit has ended up stuck in a 
rough district of Neo Tokyo. If the police find her, she'll spend the night in 
a cell, so get her out without being spotted! The temporal uplink should come 
in handy here.

Character: Chastity

Level: Neo Tokyo (Streets)

Bronze: 0     Silver: 700     Gold: 1,000     Platinum: 1,000 & 0:19.9

Rewards: Big Ears (Hat)

                                Strategy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
As the level begins, hold forward to start running. Run straight forward to 
pass the first camera, then slide right a little to avoid the second. Now 
here's the tricky part. As you pass the second camera, there's a small alcove 
that the third camera is about to block. You need to duck inside before it's 
blocked if you want the platinum. As the camera sways by, run out to the alcove 
near the corner. As soon as the police car's side is facing you, make a break 
for the end, avoiding the cameras.

                               Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: Jojo the Monkey has been causing mischief around the village, and the 
villagers have had enough. To teach him a lesson, they've thrown his bananas 
away. Help him get them back!

Character: Monkey

Level: Aztec Ruins

Bronze: 1:30.0     Silver: 1:00.0     Gold: 0:55.0     Platinum: 0:45.0

Rewards: Private Coal (Character)

                                Strategy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Run forward, and then follow the path until you reach the pillar room. As you 
enter, you should have three bananas. Grab the bananas on the left, go around 
between the pillars for three more, and then around again for the other two. 
Grab two more, and then go across to the ramp for the banana. Go up the stairs 
for two more, and then go in the doorway. Grab the one in the corner, and then 
head right. Grab the three on the right side, and then grab the far left as you 
head back out. Go around the corner, then left, into one of the early rooms in 
Story mode. Grab the first one you see, then strafe right for one more. Go 
forward and repeat. Grab the two in the back, then the one on the mound. Go 
into the hallway until you get to the final stretch. Grab the two on the left 
side, and then turn around for another. Go to the right for three more, and 
then go back across the log. Grab the one you see, the one in the trench, and 
then the one by the door.


                          ---Monkey Business---

                               Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: Jojo's been up to his old tricks again, and the villagers are really 
riled now. Not only have they taken the bananas, but they've conjured up some 
zombies to stop Jojo forever. Keep that monkey alive!

Character: Monkey

Level: Aztec Ruins

Bronze: 1:30.0     Silver: 1:05.0     Gold: 0:58.0     Platinum: 0:48.0

Rewards: Private Poorly (Character)

                                Strategy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The strategy is exactly the same as Gone Bananas, except that you have to avoid 
the undead as you go along. Learn where they are and avoid them as you move 
along. A few areas can be frustrating, like the area just after the six 
pillars. Just keep trying, as a bit of luck is involved where zombies pop up.


                         ---Playing with Fire---

                               Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: Jojo shot The Wood Golem with a flaming crossbow bolt. The Golem's 
not got long left but he's intent on getting his own back by eating as many of 
Jojo's bananas as possible! Go for the burn, Woody!

Character: Wood Golem

Level: Aztec Ruins

Bronze: 18     Silver: 22     Gold: 24     Platinum: 24 & 0:00.9 left

Rewards: Wood Golem (Character)

                                Strategy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Go forward to the corner, right, and then take the first left. You should have 
two now. Grab the banana in front of you, then the one to your right. Grab the 
five in the pillar room, and then move to the next path. Grab the three in this 
hallway. When you get to the fourth, take a left. Grab five in the next room. 
Don't bother with the one on the far side. Head down to the next area. Grab the 
group of five in front of you, and then head to the right near the dead end for 
the last.

NOTE: If you get a gold, don't allow the game to save. There is a glitch. If 
you do get the gold, and let it save, you will be unable to get the platinum 
medal.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: Uh-oh! The small town of Little Prospect is under siege by some 
vicious cardboard figures, and it looks like they have no intention of leaving. 
Take 'em down!

Character: Elijah Jones

Level: Wild West

Bronze: 1,500     Silver: 2,500     Gold: 3,500     Platinum: 4,000 (4,300 MAX)

Rewards: Ample Sally (Character)

                                Strategy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You have to aim for body shots to get 100 points for a target. To start off, 
shoot the alien against the far wall, since you have only one chance. Shoot the 
two bandits on either side. Shoot the alien at the corner, then the bandit that 
comes out of the house. Shoot the six cutouts on the roof of the sheriff's 
building, and the three in the windows. Shoot the one hiding behind the old 
lady, and then move on. Shoot the two that pop up in front of you, then the two 
on the far roof. There are three that slide across the streets. Turn left just 
before the barn and turn left. Shoot the cutout that appears, but make the shot 
count; he only appears once. Shoot the three on the upper level of the barn, 
and the two on the lower level. There are two on both the first and second 
floors of the building across from the barn. On the building past the barn, 
there are two on the upper level, and one on the lower level. There is one in 
the bank, and two on top of it. There are two targets on the building at the 
end of the street. Turn the corner and take the last three shots.


                             ---Fall Out---

                               Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: After turning snitch on Big Tony, it seems poor Marco didn't have his 
escape route planned. Tony's not the brightest of guys though, and he's sent 
some cardboard cutouts after Marco. Help Marco through Chicago without killing 
any old ladies...

Character: Marco the Snitch

Level: Chicago

Bronze: 1,200     Silver: 1,500     Gold: 1,650     Platinum: 1,700 (1,700 MAX)

Rewards: Marco the Snitch (Character)

                                Strategy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Shoot the targets as soon as they appear to avoid losing points. Walk forward 
and around the right side of the box for the first cutout. Go around the left 
side of the car for the second. The third appears on top of the large crate you 
see. The fourth appears out from between the wall and a dumpster. The fifth 
pops up in front of Marco's hideout. The sixth and seventh are on either side 
of the car. The eighth appears from behind the crate around the corner. The 
ninth is in the newsstand and the tenth is at the corner. Go around both sides 
of the large stack of crates for the eleventh and twelfth. The garage opens for 
the thirteenth. The fourteenth is behind the car. The fifteenth is above the 
next car. Approach the right side of the last car for the sixteenth, then go 
around the left side for the seventeenth.


                           ---Pick Yer Piece---

                               Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: A lawman needs a gun he can rely on. Elijah's gone down to the 
Compound to test out the performance of some firearms. Shoot as many cutouts as 
you can- but remember, accuracy will also improve your score.

Character: Elijah Jones

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I suggest switching aiming controls to where the left stick aims, especially 
for all those who played GoldenEye and Perfect Dark. The key here is to know 
where to look. I suggest using failurewarning's strategy, located at:

                               Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: Badass Cyborg is having one of those days. First of all he loses his 
bus pass and now he's realized that his spare brain is on the other side of 
town. It's not going to be easy going to get it back on foot. Especially when 
Special Forces have been deployed... again!

Character: Badass Cyborg

Level: Streets

Bronze: 5:00.0     Silver: 3:00.0     Gold: 1:30.0     Platinum: 0:45.0

Rewards: Badass Cyborg (Character)

                                Strategy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This level is all about speed. Never stop for anything. Time is not your friend 
here. First off, run straight forward and around the corner, staying along the 
right wall. When the woman jumps out, go for a head shot. If you can, great; if 
not, oh well. Grab the Soviet if you killed her and keep going. When soldiers 
get in front of you, use the soviet to take them out. Run down the path, 
weaving to and fro so you won't get shot. When you reach the brain, grab it and 
high tail it back to the start. Again, don't stop, and ignore guards that 
aren't in your way.


                  ---But Where do the Batteries Go?---

                               Information

Run straight toward the entrance, ignoring the Chassis Bots as you go. Head 
through the doors and into the first room. Shoot the Chassis Bot just in front 
of you, then the one to the left as you head left down the corridor. Shoot the 
Chassis Bot that appears, and then continue on. Turn the corner, and then waste 
R-109. Ignore the walker bot you pass and head to the spiral-like room. Try to 
kill the Chassis Bots as they appear in front of you. At the bottom, run by the 
walker and keep running. There's an automated turret to avoid, and an R-109 on 
the right. Kill the robot, and take his minigun. Warm it up, and keep moving. 
Grab the body armor. In the next room, try to get out of the turret's range as 
you take out the three R-109's. Head down the hallway on your right, and take a 
right at the end. Take out the Chassis Bots in this room, and head straight 
across. Kill the walker in the hall, and then turn the corner. Waste the wave 
of Chassis Bots that appear, and keep moving. Kill the walker you see before 
you grab the disk. Grab the disk, and run like mad. Try to avoid stopping to 
fight anything that isn't blocking your path. Just get out and make it to the 
Time Portal waiting outside.

For the most part, you'll ignore the zombies if necessary. If an Undead Priest 
gets in your way, shoot him; otherwise don't waste your time. Run forward and 
into the left door. Run down the hall and ignore the zombies that rise to greet 
you. Take the corner at the end wide to avoid the two zombies that try to 
surprise you. Run through the large room toward the door. When the zombies 
come, fake to one side, and then run around the other side past them. Run 
straight through the next room with the stairs. Go down the hall until you get 
to another room. Take the door right, into a hallway. Turn right and go in that 
door, then left across the room with all the cots. When you approach the 
stairs, you'll hear a Crispin. Walk up the stairs a little ways, and when he 
falls off of the corner, run up the stairs. Go past the balcony and into the 
other room with cots. Use the broken cots to avoid the Crispin, if they 
appeared. Go out to the balcony, grab the Bones, and turn around. Work your way 
back across the second floor to the other balcony. Leap of and into the Time 
Portal.

When the match starts, run up to either side of the fountain. Look up and 
prepare for the monkeys. The key here is monkey combos. Another helpful thing 
to do is learn where the monkeys come from. Use single blasts on the single 
monkeys, and double blasts on the groups. You have unlimited ammunition, and 
you don't have to reload, so don't worry about how often you fire.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
At the start, center your crosshairs and zoom out all the way. Aim down until 
there is just a small bit of area visible above the upper level barriers while 
you're looking through the scope. You may have to fine tune to find the 
position. Every single monkey runs by this spot. If you miss one of the monkeys 
that runs from left to right, he'll swing back around, and you'll just have to 
aim up a little to hit him. This challenge is mostly luck, as you'll need to 
rely on many Monkey Combos to hit 3,000 points.

left and right as the monkeys come, trying to score combos as you go. Try to 
shoot the monkeys that will hit the dam, and avoid the ones that fly high 
overhead. If you're minigun overheats, do a quick switch, then when your weapon 
comes back up, warm it up again.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Getting the platinum here is based on a lot of luck and some skill. Try to 
start in the outside area or somewhere near it. Your weapon of choice should be 
the pistols (Luger x2) that you start out with. Hang out near the fountain 
outside and kill anyone you see. If you die, you probably won't have time to 
get the Platinum, so restart. Don't go hunting bots unless you only need one or 
two kills. It takes practice and much luck to get under 40 seconds.

Try to start near the small hallway. (The one near the staircase.) Get a 
LaserGun, Electrool, or Plasma Autorifle and stay in that general area. Again, 
if you only need one or two more kills, go hunting, otherwise stay where you 
are. It takes a lot of luck to get it in less than one minute, but it is 
possible.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Try to find one general area to cover until right near the end. I suggest the 
hangar or the area just off of it. (Not the side with all the crates.) Grab the 
minigun closest to the start point, and then get to one of these areas. Kill 
any bots that come to you. Most of them fall pretty easily, but there is one 
Capt. Snow, who is much smarter and skilled than the rest. Don't be tempted to 
run across the map to a group of bots. Most of the time, many of them will have 
been killed, and will restart just where you left. When there are only one or 
two bots left, and they only have a life or two, go ahead and chase them down, 
otherwise, stay where you are. Avoid using the flamethrower, as the bots take 
too long to die that way.

around to the launcher outside. If your aim is good, the rockets will have 
respawned by the time you need them.

platinum. Try to put in a kill about every seven seconds or so.

Grab the Soviet on your way out. Run down to the center and grab the armor, 
while avoiding the turrets' fire. Fire a grenade to take out the left turret, 
then one to take out the right one. Try to avoid killing enemy bots at this 
point. Try to conserve grenades and rockets if you get them. If you die before 
completing the first objective, restart. Work your way past the bots and move 
up the hill. Avoid the turret's fire and run past it. Go around the corner and 
shoot the barrel in the open area. Go left, shoot the barrel in the partially 
destroyed building, then get the one in the back behind the bunker. Run into 
their base, then up the ramp. Shoot the barrel, grab the armor and minigun, and 
drop over the edge for another barrel. Turn around, shoot the last barrel, then 
run into their base. Destroy every terminal completely using grenades or 
rockets.

This is a very easy platinum to get. Remember, you're Cyberfairy. Use your 
speed and small size to your advantage. Immediately try to find a Shotgun or a 
TommyGun/TommyGun x2. Once you're armed, go straight toward the Gladiator with 
your radar. Once you've become the Gladiator, use your map to hunt down the 
zombies and gargoyles and start racking up kills. You probably won't have to do 
a lot of hunting, as they have a real annoying tendency to swarm and attack 
from all directions. You can camp if you want, but it isn't necessary.

You're stuck with Luger Pistols on this challenge. Try and get Luger Pistol x2

a few shots to kill someone, so just aim to hit. When that one is dead, run for 
the other. On occasion, they'll kill one-another, but it won't happen often. 
Try not to get shot in the back much, as dying can really hurt your chances of 
getting the platinum. Just be fast and accurate, and you should have the 
platinum within a few tries.

to settle a difference of opinion out West- a good ol' shootout! Yeehaw! Get 
yer guns!

If you're accurate and fast on the draw, this challenge will be a walk in the 
park. Simply stick to the outside area, armed with a pair of Garret Revolvers. 
If you die, restart the match. Remember, there isn't any time limit, so you're 
not in a hurry.


                            ---Golem Guru---

                               Information
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: Two years have passed down at the Site and the building still isn't 
finished! The reason? A mass of discarded hardcore has come to life and chased 
all of the builders away. Only the lightning reflexes and guile of the Master 
can finally lay the Golem to rest.

Grab the armor and health whenever you need it. Use explosive weapons. When you 
engage the golem, use the secondary fire of the Rocket weapons, or basic 
grenade shells. Always stay moving, and don't engage him unless you have ammo, 
health and armor to ensure that you won't die.

Briefing: Kitten Celeste is pretty miffed 'cause Harry Tipper has been spending 
rather too much time in the company of the Jungle Queen. Kitten says too many 
muscles look bad on a lady and her tan's fake anyway. So it looks like it's a 
cat fight at the Dam!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Try to get the spawn point on top of the building when you begin. Run over the 
boards and grab the Soviet S47(x2) and make your way to the building with the 
health kit in it. Face the door and shoot a grenade through the window every 
few seconds. If she opens the door, fire the grenade, then move immediately to 
the right. Whenever you kill her, if she managed to open the door, run out and 
get the ammo, then come back in. Repeat as needed.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: The Henchmen think they're hard enough to beat a Special Forces' Team 
in a shootout down at the old Hangar. They need to be taught a lesson. 
Professional soldiers don't prance around dressed like bananas- and baseball 
caps and IR goggles are so 90's.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This can be a very frustrating challenge to do, mostly because you have to rely 
heavily on your teammates for kills, much like Hack a Hacker. Get the Tactical 
12-Guage or the Soviet S47 and head to the room under the crane. Most of the 
Henchmen will swarm in this area or the area filled with crates. If the 
Henchmen aren't near you, then run towards the biggest group you can find that 
isn't near some of your team. This'll take several tries, but it is possible.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Use the incendiary shells from the Grenade Launcher to light the priests on 
fire. They will burn for a long time since they have such a high Stamina 
rating. Just capture the zones and keep the priests burning.


                          ---Big Top Blowout---

Briefing: There's been unrest at the Circus since Stumpy hammered a tent peg up 
Mr. Giggles' nose as part of last night's show. Mischief has cracked open a 
crate of homing rocket launchers and now it's every freak for themselves!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Your character is reasonably fast, which is good. You'll be doing a lot of 
running. You have one weapon to use: the Homing Launcher. As soon as the match 
begins, find a Launcher. Start running toward large groups of enemies and blast 
away. Avoid chasing single enemies, as they'll only slow you down. This can be 
a long match, so get comfortable. Always stay moving, and aim low so that if 
the rocket misses your target, it'll hit the ground, and do some damage if it 
doesn't kill them anyway.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: When Cortez and Hart aren't knocking seven bells out of the 
TimeSplitters they like to invite them over to the Ice Station for a friendly 
game of capture the bag. The TimeSplitters are inclined to take it a bit too 
seriously.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
When the match starts, leap from the tower to the right side. Grab the Rocket 
Launcher and speed power-up. Run to their bag, take it, and head back. If they 
take your bag, simply blast the carrier on your way back. On the second run, 
head left and grab the speed power-up and half-armor as you head to their bag. 
Simply repeat the process until time expires.

NOTE: When improving your medal, you not only must increase your lead, but your 
overall score as well.

NOTE: Avoid capturing the bag as time expires; it can lead to problems.


                         ---They're Not Pets!---

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: Mr. Giggles and Stumpy ordered a bunch of Baby Drone 'Splitters off 
the Internet. When they arrived they bit the Bear's nose and ripped off Lola's 
costume. The Ringmistress is not pleased- she wants rid of them! Watch out for 
the Bear, though, he's pretty mad.

Rewards: Baby Drone (Character), Bear (Character)

                                Strategy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
This can be a somewhat difficult challenge if you're not prepared. It's a 
three-team match, which means it'll probably be easier to get 1st. You can use 
just about any weapon (pick the one you like best), but I'd avoid the Plasma 
Autorifle and Flamethrower, simply because they take so long to put the kill 
in. Since you don't have a radar, you can basically wander around randomly, 
looking for enemies. The easiest way to kill baby drones is to drop to a 
crouch, then blast them with a 12-Guage. Knowing the map can be helpful, so you 
can keep to well-traveled areas to maximize your kills.

Briefing: United only by a passion for dressing up in silly costumes, R107 and 
Leo Krupps join forces to storm the Scrapyard Control Room. It's a death 
defying assault against the SentryBots- but watch out for those thread lasers, 
Leo! Oops, too late.

Rewards: Scrapyard (Assault Level)

                                Strategy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
From the start, head right and grab the LaserGun. Put the shield up, and run 
like a madman through the level. Whenever you pass by a drone gun or bot that 
doesn't fire rockets, simply look at it with the shield, and keep running. 
Disable it when you don't need it to conserve energy. (This is a quick 
strategy. I'll have a more detailed one at a later time.)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: Aztec Warrior just loves to hunt dinosaurs! The Aztec Priest has 
tried to convince him otherwise by explaining all of the ethical and ecological 
reasons which make it a morally questionable activity. Aztec Warrior ignores 
him, he says the Priest's just a cerebral bore.

Work your way to the room mentioned before in Aztec missions. (The one near the 
room with the pond.) Keep moving and shoot Dinosaurs the second you see them. 
You'll have to be quick and avoid dying to hit the platinum score.

anomalous materials with the usual result- a trans dimensional rift and aliens

includes you, Dr. Peabody!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Plasma Autorifle and Soviet S47 x2 are your best bets for armament. Stick 
to the hangar area and use the grenades of either weapon to kill the bots 
whenever you see them. Try not to fall far behind though.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Briefing: The Miners of the Ulcer Corp are dying of a strange Pox and the 
company executives are running a cynical sweepstake on the mortality figures- 
'Guess the Dead Fraction'. The Miners with the Pox are revolting, none more so 
than Jebediah Crump!

                                Strategy
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Get either a Rocket Launcher or SBP90 Machineguns. The flamethrower can also be 
very effective. Find yourself a nice place to camp (there are several), and 
make yourself comfortable. Whenever a bot runs in, kill him. You should be able 
to get the platinum in a few tries.



-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                    Section VIII: Frequently Asked Questions
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Can I do all those cool acrobatic moves like the bots do?
A: No. In the name of all that is good and pure, stop asking! It's not funny 
anymore.

Q: The bot died and it won't respawn. What happened?
A: This is an unfixable glitch. Sometimes it just happens, usually in Virus and 
Flame Tag modes.

Q: What are these Character Abilities?
A: If you set them to ON, you'll notice that characters have stats, measured by 
little colored bars. They are Accuracy, Agility (Speed), and Stamina (Health). 
Some characters, like the various robots, are immune to fire. Others, like the 
Wood Golem take more damage from fire. If they're set to OFF, the only 
differences between characters are their heights and models. See my Character 
Abilities FAQ for a complete listing.

Q: Who's the best character?
A: There is no single best character. Some are fast, and others can take more 
damage. Just pick the character whose stats reflect best how you play.

Q: There's a Platinum medal for 'Badass Buspass Impasse', and I haven't even 
unlocked it yet. What happened?
A: By playing a created map, you immediately are given the Platinum medal for 
that challenge. You can play the level after you unlock it to remedy the 
problem.

Q: I got a Platinum medal on 'Playing With Fire', but the game still says I 
have a Gold medal. What's up with that?
A: There is a lovely little glitch here. If you get the Gold medal, you are 
unable to get the Platinum medal. If you do get the Gold medal, reset your game 
before it saves. You must get all 24 bananas with at least a second left on the 
clock.

Q: Is it possible to get all 66 Platinum medals?
A: Yes, it's very possible.

Q: Are all of the weapons available from the get-go? How do I unlock locked 
ones? (If any)
A: All the weapons are initially available except for the brick. Earn a Silver 
or Gold medal on the 'Bricking It' challenge to earn it.

Q: Silenced Luger?
A: It's available in a couple of weapon sets and Story missions, but it can't 
be set to a MapMaker weapon set or custom weapon set.

Q: Help! How do I beat (insert Challenge or Arcade Challenge name here)? It's 
impossible!
A: Nothings impossible. You may actually be trying too hard. There are FAQs 
here, like Qbsean10's and mine. If that doesn't work, head to 
www.mathgamehouse.com/ts2 and look there.

Q: How do I unlock (insert character name here)?
A: Again, check the FAQs. The latest version of mine has most of the 
Challenge/Arcade Challenge Rewards. My Character Abilities FAQ has a complete 
listing.

Q: How many Arcade Awards are there? What are they?
A: There are about 58, when I checked last. There's a thread at GameFAQs and a 
list at Q's Laboratory that lists most, if not all of them. There's also 
another site, http://www.angelfire.com/ny5/t2arcadeawards/ that lists them all.

Q: The C-Stick is too sensitive. Can I fix it?
A: Nope. Try using the 'Switch When Aiming' setting. Set the left stick to aim 
and you'll be fine.

Q: How do I unlock (insert anything here)?
A: By playing the Challenge, Arcade League, and Story modes.

Q: How do I use the silly hats?
A: Turn the cheat on and play a match in Arcade Custom. Characters will 
randomly wear the hats you've unlocked. Not all characters can wear hats, 
though.

Q: Can I play defense on Assault?
A: Nope.

Q: Oh God the sound! What is it?
A: The Minigun and LaserGun charging sounds occasionally stick. You're stuck 
with them until the match is over.

Q: Random music isn't random. Huh?
A: Yep. It just plays Astrolander.

Q: I beat 'Bags of Fun' 7-2. Why didn't I get a Platinum medal?
A: You have to have 7 more bags than them. For example, if they got 3, you 
would have to get 10. When you go back to improve scores, not only must you get 
x bags better, you must also get more total bags than your last best score.

Q: Chilled, Normal, Frantic; What's the difference?
A: They are basically just how fast you move and how fast the game goes.

Q: Bot Stars?
A: Bot stars indicate how skilled a bot is. 1 Star is the equivalent of a 
MeatSim (pathetic), while 5 Stars is between a HardSim and a PerfectSim. 5 Star 
bots also have a large stamina increase. You can change the stars only when 
Character Abilities are disabled.

First off, I would like to thank GameFAQs (www.gamefaqs.com) and The TS2 Map 
Site (www.chriscomputers.com/ts2) for hosting this FAQ, the people at The 
TimeSplitters 2 Network (www.timesplitters2.net) and the Plat Strats group 
(www.mathgamehouse.com/ts2) for help on a few levels I had trouble on, the 
people at NGC-Elites (ngc-elites.net and ts2strats.port5.com) for the drive to 
get better, as well as several people on the message boards who gave me the 
motivation to write this because I was tired of seeing the same questions every 
day on the board.

Special thanks also go out to failurewarning and Stephen Chan, for providing me 
with a few Platinum requirements I was a little off on. Failurewarning is also 
the writer of the Pick Yer Piece Strategy I refer to in the guide.
