Upgrades cost nothing and can be applied to any weapon as long as the weapon has open Upgrade slots available. You can apply the same type of Upgrade to a weapon as many times as you want, or you can switch it up for some fun. Finding Black Markets______________________ You'll find your first Black Market at the beginning of Chapter 4. From then on every Black Market appears as a manhole with a glim- mering cover. Stand on them and a prompt will pop up that will allow you to access the Black Market. Upgrades are Permanent!____________________ Once you apply an Upgrade, it cannot be removed, so choose wisely. Find Each Upgrade Before Proceeding!_______ You should try to be sure you've found an Up- grade before proceeding further into the chapter. Going through doors with prompts, jumping down sections, entering cutscenes, and going in elevators are all a one-way trip. If you miss an Upgrade and one of these occcurs, the Upgrade is lost unless you restart the chapter. ______ (, / ) , , / / _ _ _ __ __ _/_ _____ _ _/___ /__(/_/_)_(__/ (__(_/_)_(___(_(_) / (_/_)_ (_/___ / .-/ (_/ [DES00] Accuracy_________________________[DES01]____ Decreases recoil and spread of fire. You'll get less of that nasty kick-back that sends your crosshair flying. Each upgrade will reduce recoil by twenty-five percent. Clip Extender____________________[DES02]____ Expands clip capacity for more shots between reloads. Each Upgrade applied will increase the clip size by twenty-five percent. Double Shot______________________[DES03]____ Fire secondary bullet on each shot. In other words, one tap of the trigger shoots twice the bullets. Will double the amount of damage a gun can dish out, but keep an eye on your ammunition. Best used with Clip Extender Upgrades. Enferon Shells____________________[DES04]____ Coats enemies in clouds of Enferon gas. When you apply this Upgrade, your weapon will have an increased fire power of ten against Tech- nocyte enemies, but no damage bonus against normal troopers. You'll notice a brown gas cloud where you aim the weapon, be careful not to get caught in it, since Enferon affects you as well. Fire Power________________________[DES05]____ Increases weapon damage. Each Upgrade applied will increase the power of a gun by twenty- five percent. Best used with Fire Rate Upgrades. Fire Rate_________________________[DES06]____ Increases rate of fire. Each Upgrade applied reduces the amount of time between shots by twenty-five percent. Best used with Clip Ex- tender and Fire Power Upgrades. Puncture__________________________[DES07]____ Shots travel through flesh targets to strike beyond. With this upgrade you can shoot through enemies and hit enemies behind them. Each Upgrade applied allows the bullet to travel through one more enemy. Reload Speed______________________[DES08]____ Reduces reload time. Each Upgrade applied will reduce the amount of time it takes to reload a gun by twenty-five percent. Stopping Power____________________[DES09]____ Bullets have increased chance to knock down enemies. These Upgrades help immensely when faced with swarms of Technocytes, since a downed enemy is one that can't attack. Each Upgrade applied increases the chance of knocking down an enemy by twenty-five percent. Upgrade Slots_____________________[DES10]____ Increases available number of upgrades. Each time you apply this, you get one added upgrade slot to the weapon. This Upgrade does not actually take up any slots. _ ___/__) , (, / ____ _ _/_ _____ _ / (_)(__(_(_(___(_(_) / (_/_)_ (_____ ) [LCN00] _______________________________________________ \__________Chapter 1 : Prologue___[LCN01]______\ None! So go blow up that helicopter already. _______________________________________________ \__________Chapter 2 : Exposure___[LCN02]______\ 1. (Fire-Rate) After blowing up the door with C4, enter the building and look straight ahead. Use the Glaive to fetch the Upgrade from across the gap. 2. (Fire Power) After the Colossus retreats, exit the warehouse and go to the right. Use the Glaive to fetch the Upgrade from the second story of the tower. _______________________________________________ \_____Chapter 3 : Baggage Claim___[LCN03]______\ 3. (Accuracy) After using the Power Throw for the first time, enter the tent with the radio transmission playing. It's sitting on the table. 4. (Fire Power) In the room where you first need to use elec- tricity, look behind the power generator (circular thing) and the Upgrade is sitting on the floor. 5. (Double Shot) Before entering the elevator (small square space with caging around it), search the room to find the Upgrade, also on the floor. 6. (Clip Extender) After obtaining AfterTouch and eliminating the enemies, go into the small structure in the middle of the area and descend down the stairs. The Upgrade is behind some boxes. _______________________________________________ \___Chapter 4 : Moths to the Flame___[LCN04]___\ 7. (Puncture) In the area with the fountain and electrical poles, where you fight Lasrian troops (with one high in a building), pass the turret and go to the entrance of the school but DO NOT GO IN. Turn around and look down a ways to find an alcove to the left with a door surrounded by caution tape and cones. The Upgrade is sitting on the left side on the ground. 8. (Reload Speed) On the ground level of the courtyard with the gas burning in the middle, search the outer walkway to find the Upgrade sitting on the floor. 9. (Fire-Rate) After the Colossus lays the beat down on the Lasrian troops (the area with a slope leading up to it), go behind the tents in the corner to find this Upgrade. 10. (Stopping Power) In the area where you first use a machine gun turret, go to the far end of the walkway the turret is on. The Upgrade is nudged up against the short wall. 11. (Accuracy) ***IF YOU ACTIVATE THE ENEMY CUTSCENE YOU WILL HAVE LOST YOUR CHANCE TO GET THE UPGRADE*** Instead of walking too far forward, go immediately left as you enter the attic with dead bodies. The Upgrade is behind the wall of planks. Use the Glaive to get it. 12. (Fire-Rate) Immediately after you are tossed out of the building, search to your left and behind. This Upgrade is on the ground. 13. (Enferon Shells) In the area with the ruined building in the center and no enemies, search near a statue in the building, the Upgrade is sitting on a stone table. 14. (Reload Speed) In the building after the graveyard with the circular room and torch, where you must turn a valve. After turning the valve look directly behind you. 15. (Puncture) Before entering the Colossus fight, in the area before the church with multiple things on fire, search behind a planter to find the Upgrade on the ground. 16. (Upgrade Slots) Right as the timer starts after the cutscene, run to the room on your right. The Upgrade is on a table, so retrieve it quickly, exit the room, and escape before the timer runs out. 17. (Clip Extender) Sitting on a metal case in front of where you start, right after jumping down from the corridor after escaping from the C4. _______________________________________________ \______Chapter 5 : The Shipment___[LCN05]______\ 18. (Double Shot) In the area above the deck of the freighter, jump down and turn to the right. Behind the wall of crates is the Upgrade, sitting on the ground. 19. (Fire Power) In the room with the caged dog-like Technocytes, turn to your left as you come in and search the corner to find the Upgrade. 20. (Upgrade Slot) ***BEFORE EXITING THE FREIGHTER*** When you reach the top of the stairs, instead of running out the doorway and escaping off the ship, turn right and run up a second flight of stairs to find the Upgrade sitting on the ground at the top. _______________________________________________ \_________Chapter 6 : The Bait___[LCN06]_______\ 21. (Accuracy) In the area where you first meet the projectile enemies, there is an Upgrade sitting on a table in a tent. If you enter the tent, enemies will attack you, so instead, before reaching the tent, use the Glaive to retrieve the Upgrade from the opening and then bypass the tent altogether. 22. (Enferon Shells) In the room with the hole and leaking pipe in the center, look around the hole to find the Upgrade on a table. 23. (Stopping Power) In the area where you first fight the heavy trooper, look on the right, raised walkway. The Upgrade is sitting on the first bench. _______________________________________________ \__Chapter 7 : Industrial Evolution___[LCN07]__\ 24. (Fire Power) After using the ice to freeze away the webbing, go into the next area where the zombie-like Technocytes attack and onto the train car in front of where you entered. 25. (Stopping Power) In the area where the stealthing and projectile Technocytes attack, where there is a large frozen cooler to nab ice from on a train car, run to the end of the area and then turn right and go down the space between the train cars. The Upgrade is on the floor at the end of the space. 26. (Upgrade Slots) Right after using AfterTouch to open a gate with electricity, enter the next area and look directly above you through a grated walkway. The Upgrade is sitting on the walkway, so use the Glaive to get it. 27. (Puncture) In the outside area with the train tracks and stealth/projectile Technocytes (the area has a slight left curve and fire at the end), there is a machine sitting next to some coolant canisters. The Upgrade is sitting in an open space on the machine. 28. (Clip Extender) In the area where you vault over the rails to the machine gun turret. After eliminating the enemies, go to the far corner that the turret faces, and use the Glaive to fetch the Upgrade on the ground. 29. (Double Shot) When you enter the area with the large statue and no enemies, look under a truck to spot the Upgrade. Use the Glaive to get it. 30. (Stopping Power) In the room with very large generators and pipes running along the floor, where stealth/projectile Technocytes attack you. You start on a very tall walkway and must walk down stairs to get the enemies to spawn. After eliminating them, go back up the stairs to the tall walkway and look at a balcony across from you. The Upgrade is sitting on the edge of it so use the Glaive to get it. _______________________________________________ \___Chapter 8 : Unnatural History___[LCN08]____\ 31. (Accuracy) In the very first long hallway before the showers, the Upgrade is sitting in the first room on the right side. 32. (Clip Extender) In the two-storied, large office area, defeat all the enemies and then go to ground level. Look for the Upgrade behind the curved desk in the center. 33. (Fire Power) In the room where multiple stealthing Technocytes attack, there are examination tables strewn across the left side of the room. Use the Glaive the nab the Upgrade that's sitting on one of them. 34. (Reload Speed) In the first area after obtaining the Proto-Armor, where you fight a horde of Technocytes, look on the left side of the area and the Upgrade is sitting on a cart about mid-way down the side. 35. (Enferon Shells) In the area where you zap two security turrets and then fight off Lasrian troopers, there is a hallway on the right side. Follow it to find the Upgrade on a table. _______________________________________________ \___Chapter 9 : Threshold Guardian___[LCN09]___\ 36. (Fire-Rate) In the first area of the chapter, after walking up some wooden planks and into the winding stone pathways (Where two shield troopers attack you). Do not enter the building; instead turn left and search the alcove to find the Upgrade. 37. (Fire Power) On the bridge area where the zombie-like Tech- nocytes attack, look to the left of the bridge down into the water before the turn. There is a boat washed up on the rocks, and in it is the Upgrade. Use the Glaive to get it and take a moment to enjoy your achievement. _______________________________________________ \____Chapter 10 : The Dark Sector___[LCN10]____\ None! Didn't you realize this when you got the achievement in the last chapter? :P _____ (, / | /) , /---| _ (/ _ _ _ _ ___ _ __ _/_ _ ) / |_(__/ )__(__(/_(/___(/_// (__(/_/ (_(__/_)_ (_/ [ACV00] ***A Quick Thing To Note*** When working on these achievements, note that the requirements for each must be met in one playthrough. For example, you must find ALL Upgrades in the SAME playthrough if you want the Master Researcher achievement. You CANNOT just find half the upgrades in one playthrough and half in another, because they DO NOT carry over. The same goes for the other achievements - don't just apply three Upgrades in one playthrough and two in another, and don't just find seven Upgrades in one playthrough and three in another, because you will not get the achievements. Weaponsmith___________________________10G_______ Requirement : Apply 5 Upgrades Description : To get this achievement just apply any five Upgrades to any gun. It doesn't have to be the same gun or the same type of Upgrade. Researcher____________________________10G_______ Requirement : Find 10 Weapon Upgrades Description : Just find any ten Upgrades at any point in the game. Master Researcher_____________________15G_______ Requirement : Find all Weapon Upgrades Description : To get this achievement you'll need to find all thirty-seven Upgrades in the game on a single playthrough. ______) / (, / /) /) / / (/ _ __ (/_ _ / ) / / )_(_(_/ (_/(__/_)_ o (_/ _______________________________________________ \_______Copyright and Thanks___[END00]_________\ Well my first FAQ and I didn't even do all of the work. :P OVER NINE THOUSAAAAND thanks to the awesome Kenny/Otakufreak907 for helping me with the descriptions and types of upgrades, and especially for gunning through the game not once, but twice in a row with me over the course of a day.
