The Warriors : Tag Guide v0.7 Written by Adam Campbell / Sam_Coleridge (firstname.lastname@example.org) 3nd November 2005 ~Introduction~ Hello and welcome to the first guide I've ever written. This little text file should hopefully help out any of the cats out there who are absolutely stumped as to the location of those little gang tags. For those not in the know, "The Warriors" is a brawler action game for PS2 and Xbox based on the 1979 film of the same name. Several of the bonus missions in the title revolve around the player finding enemy gang graffiti, or 'tags', and spraying over them with your own logo. This guide, when complete, should hopefully reveal to you the whereabouts of all relevant graffiti. If you are looking for a full walkthrough of the missions in the game, you've come to the wrong place. If you are looking for a certain tag, let's continue! I recommend you read this guide while playing the game from a fresh attempt at the level in question. Remember, not every mission contains tagging as a bonus objective. Some have different bonus objectives or none at all. ~General Tagging Hints~ * Different Warriors are rated as better at tagging than others. The cursor flies around more and the margin for error can be less. Be sure to remember that spraying with Rembrandt is easier than spraying with Ajax, and be sure to have an adequate supply of paint. * If you're going to tag, you need spray. I recommended stealing all the car stereos and robbing all the stores you can for cash. It's also worth remembering that you can kill spray dealers. A good tactic is to buy some spray off a dealer, then beat him down. After he is dead, you can get your money back AND an extra can of spray. If you wander off and come back a little later, the spray dealer will have respawned. A very handy tactic. Just make sure to get the jump on a dealer and keep hammering him. Many dealers will either run when attacked or come up with a large knife. * This might sound obvious, but when you have found a tag, don't forget to spray it! I know I myself have sometimes found one, got into a fight and moved on, forgetting to spray the tag I found. ~Version Information~ v0.7 - I've called this guide version 0.7 because it contains roughly 70% of what I want the completed guide to have. At the minute every tag in the story missions are listed, but not the flashback missions. I plan to have a v1 in the next few days with the flashback missions included. Thanks for your patience. ~The Missions~ #3 - PAYBACK  #4 - BLACKOUT  #5 - REAL HEAVY REP  #7 - ADIOS AMIGO  #11 - BOYS IN BLUE  #12 - SET-UP  #13 - ALL CITY  #14 - DESPERATE DUDES  #15 - NO PERMITS, NO PARLEY  --#3-- PAYBACK  Character : Rembrandt Enemy tag : Destroyers Payback is a more complicated mission for taggers than many of the others because tagging is also part of the main mission objective for this stage. You are frequently presented with a number of tags, but only asked to paint over a few of them. At this point, the location of the other tags disappears from your map. This guide lists the location of every single tag, since you'll need them all to complete the bonus objective. >>1<< The first tag is directly in front of your starting position, on the billboard. This tag does not go toward your bonus tally, but is necessary to allow you to move into the next area. >>2<< The second tag is on the fence beside where the Destroyer is being sick. >>3<< At the far end of the street on the wall beside the drug store. >>4<< Down the left alley on the wall of the coin laundry. >>5<< Through the chainlink fence, behind the Seas Inn, on the alley wall. This is the furthest right W on your map after coming through the fence. >>6<< Head down toward the 2 Ws close together on your map. One is quite obvious on a wall. >>7<< The other one is just around the corner. To reach this tag, you'll need to climb on top of the hut and then climb from there onto the metal platform. After hitting this tag, the Ws will now disappear from your map, as you have reached the Main objective. Continue reading for the other tag locations. >>8<< Go behind the building that the spray dealer is in front of. Go up the stairs and on to the roof. Jump from this roof onto the opposite one, the roof of "Varity Grocery". Very slowly and carefully drop off the roof onto the awning ledge at the front of Varity Grocery. The Destroyers tag will be written on the grocery sign. >>9<< Get back onto the roof of Varity Grocery, but this time jump to the metal platform behind the store. Leap from this platform to the opposite metal platform, the rear fire escape of the drug store. Leap from here to the corregated iron roof at the end. The tag is on the fence blocking off the train tracks. A train will pass by when you hit this tag. >>10<< In the next area, the next tag is on the billboard on the liquor store roof. Use the rear steps for access. >>11<< There is a tag on the wall of a house in the yard where the Destroyers are having a party. This is behind the liquor store. >>12<< In the top left corner of the map (from your starting position in this part of the stage), there is another tag. Here the Destroyers are on some scaffolding, spraying their tag on a wall which reads Spiegel Floorshining Shoes. Climb onto the garage for access. >>13<< There is tag behind the hut on the roof of the building in the top right hand corner of the map. Simply run up the steps to the roof, walk behind the little hut and spray the tag. >>14<< Running jump from this building to the one opposite. On this roof there are a group of Destroyers listening to the radio so we'll call this Radio roof. Turn to the building on the right of radio roof and leap across. The tag is hidden behind a wall on this second roof. Watch your step here and make sure your back is clear or you'll fall down onto the roof below which contained Tag 10. >>15<< Get back onto Radio roof and drop from here onto the cinema marquee. There is a tag on the wall here. >>16<< This tag is a mission objective one and doesn't count toward your bonus objective, which you should have completed now if you hit all those tags. This final tag is large burner you have to do outside the Destroyers headquarters to finish the mission. --#4-- BLACKOUT  Character : Vermin Enemy tag : Moon Runners There are plenty of other things going on in Blackout, so it's quite easy to miss some of the tags here. While it hasn't reached the levels of some of the later missions, some of the tag placement is a little bit tricky. Don't worry about looking for tags during the Baseball Furies part. All tags are prior to that. >>1<< The first tag is behind the music store, on a wall beside the first Flash dealer. Simply go up the stairs in the alley. This tag can be easy to miss because you do not get any spray until the next alley. Make sure to come back to this point after you get some spray. >>2<< The second tag is in the next alley, to the right of the first spray dealer, between a pallet and a dumpster. >>3<< On the side of the abandoned truck trailer, a Moon Runner is spraying his tag over some Furies graffiti. Spray over what he has done with some Warriors logos! >>4<< At the end of this street, opposite the drug store, beside the burnt out car, should be another tag. >>5<< In the alley behind the drug store, to the right of the red objective marker, there are some stairs. Head up them. At the far end on the left wall, there is another tag. >>6<< Move into the next area, and watch the cops arrive. Tag six is behind the electronics store with the truck crashed through the window. Hop the fence and move around the back. You'll see a big Moon Runners tag on the wall. >>7<< To get at tag seven you need to complete your primary objective and head toward the exit. At the end of the first alley, before the fence that leads to Furies, is the last tag beside a burning barrel. --#5-- REAL HEAVY REP  Character : Cleon Enemy tag : Orphans Some people have a lot of trouble with this one, I assume either because of the sneaky tag on the back of the billboard or because they run right past the very first one. Truth be told, on my first play through, I was one of those guys who ran right past the very first one, so no hard feelings! >>1<< The first tag is on the wall to the right of the fence the Orphans are trying to escape through at the start of the mission. >>2<< After the rumble at the clinic, the next tag is on the back of the billboard on the roof of Fabulous Fashion. To get access to this, go around the back and up the flight of stairs you see. From this vantage point, leap to the roof of Discount Books + Comics. Climb up from here to the roof of Fabulous Fashions and spray that tag. >>3<< Between Fabulous Fashions and Value Gas, on the far left hand side, is a small park or garden with some Orphans in it. On the far wall, under the railway tracks, is their tag. >>4<< Walk up to the top of the hill and turn left. Move into the left alley, opposite the orange car. Orphans are spraying their tag against a wall here. Paint over it. >>5<< Head to the red W and trash the Orphans at the Orphanage. The tag you are looking for is on the wall of the main house, the one which Mercy speaks to you from. Simply wreck all the Orphans, wait until the cutscene is over and hit this tag. --#7-- ADIOS AMIGO  Character : Ajax Enemy tag : Hurricanes Tags here are slightly more disgused again. There's one in particular which is not difficult to walk past (Tag 2). Once again, the secret is loading up on some spray and enjoying a little bit of exploration. >>1<< In the yard to the left of the Hurricane's car. Climb on top of the dumpster to reach it. >>2<< Tag two is above the wooden scaffold near the start of mission, which two guys are sitting on. To reach it, climb on to the roof of the Tire Shop. Jump from this roof to the opposite one, and then from here on to the wooden scaffold. The tag is on the wall. >>3<< Go behind the tire shop and face the spray dealer. Turn 180 degrees from here and you'll see a breakable fence on your left. Smash it down and climb the box on your left to gain access to another tag. >>4<< Head toward your objectives. Before you leave the alley to step onto the main street you should pass a tag on a fire escape to your right. Climb on to the box on your right. Then it's a simple run and jump onto the fire escape to reach another tag. >>5<< Continue until you meet the group of Hurricanes sitting on a stoop, listening to music. In the left alley, opposite the bar and car, should be a flash dealer. Just behind him is another tag. >>6<< Follow Sanchez to the second ambush in the ruined building. Beat the Hurricanes and climb up to where Sanchez was. He'll run away, of course. Behind where he was standing is another tag. Quickly paint over it before you chase after him. >>7<< The last tag is in plain view, in the final room where you fight Diego and Vargas. The tag is on the back wall, to the left of the boarded up hole that Vargas comes busting through. Try to get your other Warriors to attack the bosses, or draw their assault, while you handle the tag. --#11-- BOYS IN BLUE  Character : Cochise Enemy tag : Turnbull ACs In terms of tagging, this mission is relatively simple. There are only three spots where you need to get up, and there is an abundance of spray and money around. If there is any trouble, it's that the Turnbulls' tags are very weathered on this mission and later on, making them sometimes hard to spot. >>1<< The first tag is on the wall beside the group of Turnballs you have to throw in front of the train at the beginning of the mission. >>2<< The second tag is in the alleyways behind the jewllery story, on the far warehouse wall, near a large brown pillar. >>3<< The last tag is on the boarded up window of the club where you go inquiring about the missing Warriors, just to the left of the first red W. That's all the tags you need to worry about! --#12-- SET-UP  Character : Cowboy Enemy tag : Jones Street Boys As revenge for the previous mission being so easy, Set-Up is one of the most complicated tagging missions in the game. Swings and roundabouts. In fact, from here on in, they are all a little tricky. The two main difficulties here are a lack of spray until you explore further into the level and the almost maze-like structure of the stage. This guide makes reference to the 'central' building once or twice. For the purposes of this guide, the central building is...well, the most central large structure where you can break the second floor windows and enter the hallway. >>1<< Turn 180 degrees from your starting position and take a right into the alley. There is a JSB tag on the wall to your right, beside a white door and a dumpster. >>2<< In the alley behind the drugstore, there is a dumpster with a spray can. Climb onto it and up from there onto the metal platform to reach the tag on the wall. >>3<< Go to the alley behind the long stretch of shops with the flower store on it. This is further down the same alley from tag 2. Near the car where the man attacks you if you steal his radio, there should be a JSB scout and a flight of stairs. Go up the stairs and leap to the small roof directly ahead. The tag is on the wall. >>4<< There is a spray dealer to the south of your starting position, past the central building, near the JSB HQ. There should be a JSB fixing his car here too. Go up the staircase, pass by the metal gates to the JSB HQ, continue straight on down the next staircase. Turn right and go down to the end of the alley for another tag on the wooden fence. >>5<< Go to the central building. Walk up the buildling stairs and past the glass windows. You should see a JSB tag on the brick wall to your left, opposite the broken railing. >>6<< Go to face the spray dealer and turn 180 degrees. You'll see a fence straight ahead. Hop it. There will be a tag obviously on your right. >>7<< Go to the alley behind the electronics store. There's a ledge with some benches on it that you can climb up to. A JSB tag will be on the left most wall. >>8<< Behind the jewellery store, some people are having a party around their car. There is a tag on the wall near the car. >>9<< Go to the alley behind the car repair services, near the electronic store. Head toward the car yard and arguing voices by climbing over the wooden fence where the barbed wire is missing, then bash through the breakable fence on the other side. Take out the cops and JSBs, then go up the metal stairs and hop the railing on to the top of the metal cage. The JSB tag will be there. >>10<< This completes the main nine tags, but there is another one. When you go inside the JSB HQ to plant the evidence, there is a large JSB tag on the wall. Tag it to complete a seperate bonus objective. --#13-- ALL CITY  Character : Rembrandt Enemy tag : Moon Runners Though the main objectives of this mission involve tagging, the bonus tags are different. However, surprisingly in this fairly large level, the tags aren't too hard to find with the exception of the last one, which is a bit of a cow. >>1<< There is a tag on the left wall of the railway tunnel you enter the trainyard from, just beside the first objective marker. You have to step on the marker first before you can tag this very obvious spot. >>2<< After the radio room, go out the door that just opened and up the stairs. Fight your way across the steel gantry to the other side of the buildling and take the next flight of stairs down. The Moon Runners' tag is on the side of this staircase at ground level. >>3<< On the far east side of the map there is what looks like a disused station buildling with a bunch of Moon Runners hanging around it. There are a number of benches here as well. The tag is on the wall near the benches where the MRs were standing. >>4<< Go to the roof of the building where Fox meets you for the second time. To one of you should be a white train car. The others should be brown. Jump on to the roof of the white car and run along it, jumping between cars anytime there is a gap. Keep going until you see a platform ahead. Leap onto that. The tag is on the iron fence to your right. There may be a Moon Runner up here too. --#14-- DESPERATE DUDES  Character : Swan Enemy tag : Turnbull ACs This is another long, drawn out mission with a number of tags in it. However unlike Missions 11 and 15, this has a more linear structure, making the tags easier to find. The disadvantage is that I believe there is no spray dealer on this stage, so keep your eyes out for free cans. >>1<< Don't move after you start. The first tag is directly to the right of your starting position. This is one people frequently seem to miss. >>2<< Keep moving until you are walking up a long metal flight of stairs onto a gantry. There is a tag on the left wall. >>3<< WHen you have to stealth kill the first AC, a tag is dead ahead of you on the brick wall near the skip. >>4<< Before you exit this part, there is a tag just before the Red w, where a lone fat AC was standing with a machete. The tag is on the brick wall behind his position. >>5<< Move through the warehouse, up the steps and into the next section. When you drop through the hole in the fence, there should be a flash dealer to your left and a tag straight ahead on the opposite wall. Just run forward to reach it. >>6<< Head toward the yellow objective marker, up the stairs and past the large AC symbol on the wall near the truck trailers. At the top of the stairs there are some windows to your right leading to an AC hangout. Break in there and move into the rear left hand room. There is a tag on the left wall. >>7<< Go to the yellow marker and through the double doors. Stop immediately after passing through them and turn around 180 degrees. There is a tag on the wall beside the doors outside. >>8<< Rescue Vermin and continue. As you move past the crane into the junkyard, you'll pass a wooden house on your left. The tag is on the back of the house. >>9<< As you leave the junkyard, you'll see some Warriors ahead brawling with the Turnbulls. The tag you want here is under the bridge, on the right hand side wall. >>10<< Head up the steps toward the subway until you come to a burnt out factory / refinery area. There are some stairs in the middle of the area leading to a building. Go up the stairs and into the buildling. The tag is on the interior wall. --#15-- NO PERMITS, NO PARLEY  Character : Swan Enemy tag : Orphans Like Mission 11, this stage has a less linear structure. That means you'll have to do a lot more climbing around and exploring to find all the tags. Luckily, you're reading a guide so you don't have to find them all yourself! Also worth noting is that the cops are hounding you constantly on this stage and you have a lot of things to worry about. It can be difficult to get finished tagging something before a cop tackles you, so time it well when you try to get up. There is a spray dealer on this stage, but not a lot of cash to go around. Don't forget about beating the dealer. There is also a store near the stage exit which can be looted. >>1<< Straight ahead at the top of the first set of steps, beside a barrel is the first Orphans tag. I believe there is some flash and spray on either side of the staircase. >>2<< On the wall of the carpark where you first rumble with the Orphans on this stage, it should be very clear. It's right of the red W and there is a flash dealer on the other side of the fence from this tag. >>3<< When everyone gets busted, head left up the stairs from your start position, then jump across the rooftops until you reach a billboard with the Orphans tag on the back. >>4<< In the alley behind this billboard buildling (Car Repair) there is an injuried Warrior. Head straight past him and you should see a dumpster beside a metal awning. There is a tag above the metal awning, so climb onto the dumpster for access. You should have been able to spot this from the position of Tag 3, to give you a better idea of barings. >>5<< Go to the alley where Cowboy was lying injured. It's the alley in the direction the cop car is pointing in the area before the exit. There are some stairs here, go up them and leap to the opposite buildling. The tag is on the wall here, opposite the sign for Spiegels. >>6<< Head to the wall with the breach in it which leads to the exit. Face the breach and turn left. You should see a tag on a brick wall straight ahead, behind a dumpster. Paint over it with the Warriors tag and you've completed all the bonus tags for this stage and the main story missions!
