       1.1   Version History   VHIS   
    Version 2.02   March 20, 2005
                   I have removed all contact details. I no longer want to receive
                   tips, questions, and the like. Thanks to those who have put the
                   effort in e-mailing me, but now is the time for me to end all
    Version 2.01   June 29, 2004
                   Just after the big update has been uploaded, I spotted a couple
                   of big mistakes. My apologies.
    Version 2.00   June 29, 2004
                   I haven't touched this in over a month, and after browsing 
                   through version 1.06, I thought "this needs some serious 
                   formatting" and now this is the result! The table of contents 
                   looks prettier and so do some of the headings. I have also added 
                   some extra tips from e-mails which I have received from as early 
                   as January, and I have re-shuffled the order, most notably in 
                   sections 1 and 4. I have also done some other formatting changes 
                   which you may or may not have noticed, and I have re-written
                   some sections and strategies. Oh, and I have added some 
                   reference codes too. As a result of all these changes, the 
                   filesize has gone up by over 30kb!
    Version 1.06   December 9, 2003
                   I have made quite a lot of small changes. More tips have been 
                   added, thanks to some e-mails, and also some small formatting 
                   changes. Questions and tips are still welcome!
    Version 1.05   September 7, 2003
                   I have added a question in section 4.1. That's about it.
    Version 1.04   August 24, 2003
                   Ah, I haven't updated this in a while! Thanks to Andy, there is 
                   an extra tip to help you complete Dam Bursters! This can be 
                   found in section 3.2.
    Version 1.03   April 25, 2003
                   An even smaller update, just correcting something small in 
                   section 4.2.
    Version 1.02   April 23, 2003
                   Another small update here. I have updated sections 1.3 and 3.2.
    Version 1.01   April 22, 2003
                   I have noticed a couple of mistakes in sections 1.3 and 4.2, so 
                   I have now corrected them.
    Version 1.00   April 21, 2003
                   This FAQ is now done! I have finally completed section 3.2. 
                   Additionally, I have updated section 4.1 just randomly.
    Version 0.95   April 18, 2003
                   I only have a couple more strategies left to write about and 
                   that's it! I have almost completed section 3.2 and section 4 is 
    Version 0.85   April 15, 2003
                   Nearly there now! I am about half way there composing the 
                   Challenges strategies. I have also updated section 4.2.
    Version 0.75   April 11, 2003
                   A quick update here, I have started doing the Challenges 
                   section, completing section 3.1, the introduction. I have also 
                   done a quick formatting change, updating the section bars.
    Version 0.70   April 10, 2003
                   I have finally completed section 2 after finishing off writing 
                   about the Elite League and I have done some extra work on 
                   section 4.2.
    Version 0.50   April 9, 2003
                   I have continued working on section 2, completing writing about 
                   the Honorary League. I have updated section 1.3, the websites, 
                   and I have also updated the table of contents. Section 4 has 
                   been added to and so more work is needed to finalise section 4.
    Version 0.25   April 8, 2003
                   Sections 1, About the FAQ, and 4, Finishing Off, have been
                   completed. I have started composing section 2, the Arcade
                   League, managing to finish sections 2.1 and 2.2.

       1.3   Introduction   INTN   
    [ This section has been re-written for v2.00 because it previously sounded 
    rather stupid and dull ]
    This FAQ will primarily try to give you useful tips to conquer the Arcade 
    League and Challenges. All these strategies have worked for me, except the ones 
    stated, and they have all helped me with a gold, or even platinum, trophy in 
    every single arcade match and challenge.
    To find a section quickly, just find the reference code given in the table of 
    contents and use the shortcut [ Ctrl + F ] to go to it quickly.
                                  2.0   Arcade League                         ARCD 
       2.1   Introduction   AINT   
    [ Like the Introduction, this section has been re-written for v2.00 ]
    Arcade matches are considered to be easier than Challenges. This may seem like 
    it in the Amateur or Honorary Leagues, but some challenges in the Elite League 
    will have you ripping your hair out and breaking some controllers...OK, that is
    a tiny exaggeration, but it won't be an easy ride!
    I have updated the headings of each strategy, and so new headings are starred 
    [*] beside them in the brief description below. So, here is are the headings, 
    along with a description of what they mean:
    Title            This is simply the title of the arcade match.
    Type             Is it deathmatch, capture the bag, zones? Well, this heading 
                     will tell you.
    Description*     Here, a few details will be given on the match or what you
                     have to do.
    Location*        This is where I tell you where the arcade match will take 
                     place. I hope it's not in the cramped nightclub!
    Rewards*         This new addition will tell you what you get if you have 
                     earned a trophy in that particular arcade match.
    Score for Gold   The score needed for that elusive gold is listed here. 
                     Platinum scores may also be added at times.
    Difficulty       This is an indication on how hard I think it is to get GOLD, 
                     not platinum. Also remember that this is MY opinion, and 
                     no-one else's.
    Strategy         How did I get that gold? Well, this is the part you need to 
                     look up on then!
    Remember, these strategies are NOT guaranteed to get you a gold straight away.
    Good luck!
       2.2 Amateur League   AMTR   
     1)  Beginner's Series
    Title:            Adios Amigos!
    Type:             Deathmatch
    Description:      None
    Location:         Mexican Mission
    Rewards:          Hector Baboso, Lean Molly
    Score for Gold:   10 kills in 3 minutes (Platinum: 40 seconds)
    Difficulty:       1/10
    Strategy:         No real strategy here. Wait outside by the fountain and just 
                      kill anyone you see. Stick with the Lugers x2 unless you pick 
                      something else up. Don't bother wasting your time to search
                      for better weapons as the Lugers will do fine.
    Title:            Casualty
    Type:             Deathmatch
    Description:      None
    Location:         Hospital
    Rewards:          Dr. Peabody, Crypt Zombie
    Score for Gold:   15 kills in 3 minutes 30 seconds (Platinum: 1 minute)
    Difficulty:       2/10
    Strategy:         Slightly harder, but nothing to worry about. The best weapons 
                      to use are the Lasergun or the Plasma Autorifle. Get one of 
                      them and you should do fine. The Electrotool works well too.
    Title:            Top Shot
    Type:             Elimination
    Description:      6 Lives
    Location:         Hangar
    Rewards:          Hangar, Sgt. Shock, Elimination
    Score for Gold:   1st in 3 minutes (Platinum: 1 minute 10)
    Difficulty:       4/10
    Strategy:         Fairly simple. Always target Capt Snow. If you don't there
                      is a good chance that you will end up running out of time
                      trying to get rid of his three or four lives left. Of course,
                      that doesn't mean you should ignore the rest. If you meet
                      someone else along the way, be sure to kill him! Use the
                      minigun to help you eliminate your rivals if you wish.
     2)  Mode Madness
    Title:            Chasity Chased
    Type:             Regeneration
    Description:      One-on-one
    Location:         Compound
    Rewards:          Regeneration
    Score for Gold:   10 kills in 3 minutes (Platinum: 1 minute 10)
    Difficulty:       2/10
    Strategy:         Very simple. Just find a stronger weapon than your starting
                      one, then hunt her down using your radar! She tends to run
                      away until she finds a decent weapon.
    Title:            Shrinking from the Cold
    Type:             Shrink
    Description:      None
    Location:         Siberia Dam (Outside)
    Rewards:          Private Sand, Sgt. Slate, Shrink
    Score for Gold:   10 kills in 3 minutes (Platinum: 50 seconds)
    Difficulty:       2/10
    Strategy:         Very simple again. I would get a stronger gun like a 
                      Tactical 12 Gauge, which is in one of the buildings, or a 
                      Minigun, which is found on top of a building, to kill your 
                      opponents. If you are having difficulty killing them when
                      they are small, why not crouch?
    Title:            Scrap Metal
    Type:             Vampire
    Description:      One-on-one
    Location:         Scrapyard
    Rewards:          Scrapyard, ChassisBot
    Score for Gold:   10 kills in 3 minutes (Platinum: 1 minute 5)
    Difficulty:       3/10
    Strategy:         Slightly harder, but it shouldn't pose any problems. Get a
                      decent weapon, preferably a Lasergun, use your radar to find 
                      the ChassisBot, and kill him. Remember, if your life span
                      is empty, you die, so keep killing it quickly to stay alive!
     3)  It's A Blast!
    Title:            Night Shift
    Type:             Leech
    Description:      None
    Location:         Robot Factory
    Rewards:          SentryBot, Leech
    Score for Gold:   1st with 25 kills (Platinum: 50)
    Difficulty:       4/10
    Strategy:         This is slightly harder than previous matches. Your opponents
                      can be a bit tricky to spot in the Robot Factory. Homing
                      Launchers are very useful in this. Keep moving, everyone has
                      rockets, and don't be scared to kill an opponent when you
                      are literally touching him - it's leech!
    Title:            Spoils of War
    Type:             Thief
    Description:      None
    Location:         Ice Station
    Rewards:          Meezor Mox, Thief
    Score for Gold:   25 points in 4 minutes 30 seconds (Platinum: 2 minutes 40)
    Difficulty:       4/10
    Strategy:         It is useful to get the Homing Launcher. On this fairly open
                      level, aim at your opponents' lower body instead of the head. 
                      Try not to run in a straight line and remember to get the 
                      coin that the dead body leaves behind. If you are lucky, you 
                      may spot some easy coins lying around. Be sure to pick them 
    Title:            Demolition Derby
    Type:             Deathmatch
    Description:      None
    Location:         Scrapyard
    Rewards:          Male Trooper, Female Tropper, Vampire
    Score for Gold:   1st with 25 kills
    Difficulty:       3/10
    Strategy:         To kill ChassisBots, one rocket is enough. To kill 
                      SentryBots, make sure you fire three at a time using the 
                      alternate fire. Since you are R109, it will take more than a 
                      rocket to kill you. There's a Homing Launcher in the middle 
                      and there's a damage power-up lying around. If you get a 
                      chance, get them, but otherwise, Rocket Launchers are fine.
     4)  Too Hot to Handle
    Title:            Monkey Immolation
    Type:             Virus
    Description:      None
    Location:         Mexican Mission
    Rewards:          Crispin, Flame Tag
    Score for Gold:   Survive for 2 minutes (Platinum: 3 minutes)
    Difficulty:       3/10
    Strategy:         Quite simple. Get outside in the courtyard and go to the top
                      of the building with the ladder. Watch out for the monkeys 
                      and jump off the building if a monkey comes up. Go around the 
                      fountain in the courtyard then go up the ladder again. Repeat 
                      until you get caught. There is a glitch which may occur if 
                      you are lucky. Sometimes the infected monkey can get trapped 
                      under the ladder. If you get this, you're on for an easy 
                      There's also another tip, as Ryan Wardell tell you:
                      | "Another way is to go to the colunm where the cloak       |
                      | power-up usually is and stand there. If you're lucky, the |
                      | virus will be trapped under the column, running around in |
                      | circles."                                                 |
                      Cheers Ryan! This method has been tested and works at times.
    Title:            Disco Inferno
    Type:             Virus
    Description:      None
    Location:         Nightclub
    Rewards:          Louis Bignose, Lt. Wild
    Score for Gold:   Survive for 2 minutes (Platinum: 3 minutes)
    Difficulty:       5/10
    Strategy:         This is a lot tougher. Go outside and run up the metal
                      stairs. Find the Tommy Gun on the top level, not the side 
                      with the max damage power-up, and position yourself facing 
                      the ramp. When anyone is trying to make their way up, kill 
                      them. Should you have difficulty, run backwards and you will 
                      manage to go across the gap between the two sides, picking up 
                      the max damage power-up at the same time. Now use this to 
                      kill them with ease and make your way back to the side with

    Strategy:         Go up to the balcony with the Shotgun. This is a useful spot 
                      as there are two exits with only one entrance. When an 
                      infected opponent comes in, try to kill them. If you can't, 
                      drop down from the balcony, running backwards, then go to 
                      your right, then left, up the stairs, then go back to the 
                      balcony to wait for them. You may want to practise this route 
                      before trying this strategy.
                      There is an alternate strategy. Go into the bathroom and wait 
                      for an infected bot to come in. Now circle around the room to 
                      avoid getting caught. This only works if only one opponent is 
                      infected and if no-one else comes in and gets caught.

                      there is a ramp. Go up it and get the Homing Launcher. At the
                      top is a Minigun and body armour. Fall off, then stay on the
                      right until you see an autogun. Use the Homing Launcher to
                      get rid of that. Proceed to the waterfall, and switch to the
                      minigun. Blow up the two barrels that are in the open. Get
                      your Soviet out and destroy the one behind one of the
                      buildings. Go to the far left to grenade another one. Go

                      one. Drop down from the left to find the last one. If you are 
                      still alive, that's good. If you die at any point before all
                      the barrels are destroyed, respawn and use the Homing

                      strategy that worked best for me is to hunt down the

                      moving while shooting rockets at every robot that you see.

                      The toilets and the shower room is a great place to hide and
                      the balcony has double Shotguns and is another great area.
                      My advice is to run to the nearest of these two areas every
                      time you die and respawn. Oh, and always always aim for head 
                      shots. The ducks die so much more easily. And make sure you
                      always have double Shotguns.

    Strategy:         This one may be easier because there are less opponents, but 
                      your character is weak compared to the Scourge Splitters! 
                      Despite this, you should get through this fairly easily. 
                      How? Go to or spawn in the tunnel-like area and pick up the
                      SBP90 Machinegun and the body armour. Now kill the Splitters
                      as fast as you can, staying in this area. Don't let them get 
                      any extra health (you can tell when they want some by them 
                      running away) and if you need any health yourself, get the
                      body armour, when it spawns.
                      This isn't the only way, as Dave suggests another way:
                      | "Go to the room upstairs inside the building. There is a  |
                      | SBP90 Machinegun x2 and some health. Camp here and kill   |
                      | the Splitters."                                           |
                      I've tried this method and it works great, so try it out!

                      then kill all the Handymen that are coming! Don't leave this
                      area. If you want ammo, move forward to pick up the ammo left
                      by the dead bodies. If you want health, just move back and

    Strategy:         This is one of my favourite Arcade matches and I still
                      sometimes come back to it to try to improve my time. Start by 
                      exiting the current room and turn left. In front of the box 
                      on the left is a Soviet. Get it and run behind the box and 
                      grenade the autogun that you see shooting at you. Turn around 
                      and look at the mounted gun at the top through the slit. Look 
                      down (parallel to the gap) and bounce the grenade up to 
                      destroy that gun. Do the same to the other mounted gun. Then 
                      turn around and shoot two grenades at the autoguns beside the 
                      next door. At this point, you are free to die.
                      Continue with the Soviet. Now here comes the hardest autogun 
                      you have to destroy. If you want to do it safely, go round 
                      the back of the mounted gun (on the box) and shoot at it 
                      until it has been destroyed. Alternatively (but risky), 
                      you can bounce a grenade at it and hopes it destroys the 
                      autogun. Enter the next room and immediately turn right 
                      behind the box to get the body armour. Continue running and
                      aim a grenade at the autogun on the far right. Now stand 
                      against the wall, parallel with the two mounted guns on the 
                      ceiling. Look down and bounce one parallel to it to destroy 
                      the mounted gun further away from you. Do the same on the 
                      other side. Now there's one more left. Look in the opposite 
                      direction of the stairs to see another one. Aim a grenade 
                      there and you should get a new objective. If not, you are
                      missing an autogun, and I suggest you restart.
                      Now go upstairs, ignoring everything that is shooting at you, 
                      until you come to a switch. Activate it, then die. Respawn 
                      and get the Soviet (beside the stairs) and enter the final
                      room with the planes. Grenade two of the barrels between the 
                      tyres of the first plane you see. Turn right to see another 
                      plane, and between the tyres of that one is another barrel. 
                      Grenade that one to finish it and get a respectable time.
                      If you are aiming to get platinum, aim to destroy all the 
                      perimeter guns by 45 seconds, or 50 by the most.

    Strategy:         You are facing a Stone Golem. Grenade Launchers, Shotguns and 
                      most other things are useless against him. The solution? 
                      Rockets. Your first target has to be getting the Homing 
                      Launcher. To find it, go up the ramp of the building in the 
                      corner (there is also health there if needed) and you will 
                      see the Homing Launcher lying on a beam. Take it and fall 
                      down. It takes two secondary fires (or six rockets) to kill 
                      the Golem. Once you do kill him, your ammo is bound to be 
                      low, so get the Rocket Launcher under one of the ramps. 
                      Again, use the secondary fire to kill him, then go back to
                      find the Homing Launcher.

    Strategy:         This is very similar to Hack a Hacker but the time 
                      requirements are much harsher! You have to heavily rely on 
                      your teammates for kills. The most important weapon is the 
                      Soviet. Henchmen sometimes come in groups. If that's the 
                      case, grenade them and earn a few quick kills. Another very 
                      useful weapon is the Rocket Launcher (upstairs). Don't get it 
                      unless you spawn near it as you will waste time. Another 
                      reason why this is harder than Hack a Hacker is that the 
                      Hangar level is way bigger. Keep trying and you will
                      eventually succeed.

    Difficulty:       5/10
    Strategy:         This is surprisingly easy once you know what to do. Firstly,
                      you will have noticed that one disadvantage against you is 
                      that the Undead Priests' stamina is a lot higher than yours.
                      But, believe it or not, you can turn it into an advantage.
                      How? Well, find a Grenade Launcher (there is one lying under 
                      one set of stairs) and use the secondary fire to set them on 
                      fire! They take a long time to die, due to their high 
                      stamina, and will not secure any zones as they make their way 
                      to the shower room! Meanwhile you can secure all the zones! 
                      Alternatively, you can follow the Undead Priests and 
                      continuously set them on fire while your teammates secure all 
                      the zones. Because your agility is fast, if you are on fire, 
                      try to set the Undead Priests on fire and let your teammates 
                      rack up the points. Simple, huh?

                      avoid getting killed. Use your high speed to your advantage

    Score for Gold:   7 bags better (Platinum: 10 bags better)
    Difficulty:       9/10
    Strategy:         This is one the hardest in the whole game, so keep patient. 
                      Seven minutes is a long time and if you mess up during that 
                      time, you will have to start again. There are two strategies 
                      I can give you. First, I will tell you the one I use. Go to 
                      the right side approaching the TimeSplitters' base, getting a 
                      Rocket Launcher and the speed power-up along the way. On your 
                      way back, go to your right again and grab the half-armour. Go 
                      upstairs and score. On your second run, go to the left side. 
                      There will be another speed power-up. Repeat the process, 
                      making sure that the Splitters don't grab your bag. This 
                      strategy has worked for me, but only after a lot of attempts.
                      It is even possible to get platinum with this method, as I
                      have, but you need a bit of luck.
                      The second strategy is going to the little building in the 
                      far left. In that building there is a Homing Launcher and 
                      full body armour. Go there every time when your Homing 
                      Launcher ammo runs out. This doesn't seem to work for me, but 
                      who knows, you might have better luck with it.
                      There are a couple of things that I will note. Don't score
                      with your opponents' bag after the time runs out. Apparently,
                      this can lead to all sorts of problems. Also, when you are
                      trying to improve your trophy, you must also improve the
                      number of bags you score as well as your lead.

    Strategy:         Another team deathmatch. As long as you are prepared, you 
                      shouldn't have any problems at all. I usually try to either 
                      stay in the main circus area where there is a SBP90 
                      Machinegun x2, or if I spawn outside, get a decent weapon and 
                      run around outside in circles, killing everything I see. 
                      Avoid using the Flamethrower and the Plasma Autorifle's
                      primary fire, as it takes too long to kill someone.

    Strategy:         I couldn't decide, 7, 8 or 9 out of 10, and you will see why
                      as you have to depend on your luck. But either way, I must 
                      admit this is harder than Superfly Lady. There is one weapon 
                      that will make life a hell of a lot easier to complete: The
                      Lasergun. Get the Lasergun and turn the shield on (using 
                      secondary fire), charging through towards the left side. Aim 
                      your shield towards the top left laser threads, then when you 
                      get nearer to the door, the ceiling of the hallway as there 
                      are two laser threads there. Just before you enter the 
                      hallway, there is a full body armour on the left. Be sure to 
                      get it! After going past the hallway, immediately turn left 
                      to the next door (under the ramp). Continue going down and 
                      your first objective, to breach the airlock, is complete.
                      Keep running down and you will come to another laser thread.
                      Remember to turn and face the laser thread in the small 
                      opening on your top right when you get to it. After this one, 
                      there are a quite a few threads as you go down the ramps.
                      Point your shield to the top right, running on the inside of 
                      the path. You will then come across a rocket turret. Step 
                      into its view, then step back. A rocket will be blasted and
                      should miss you. Enter the next room (the cooling towers) and 
                      progress from here and you should have completed your second 
                      objective. If you die once before you reach this second 
                      checkpoint, restart. The main reason being that bots will be 
                      in your way trying to kill you and you can't defend off the 
                      laser threads and the bots at the same time.
                      Continue through, getting the half armour. You will then 
                      enter a room with two rocket turrets, one infront and one 
                      behind. Run in a zig-zag, left to right, to dodge the 
                      rockets. Continue through until you get to a grated walkway. 
                      Turn right in the 'T' intersection. There is another turret
                      (plasma) which will start firing. You can dodge left and 
                      right or just keep running forward (you won't lose much 
                      health). The next room has more plasma turrets. If you are 
                      fast enough, you can avoid them by running to the next room,
                      opposite the entrance. Eventually you will come to a blue
                      hallway. Go up the stairs on the right, go up and immediately 
                      take a left. Turn your Lasergun shield on because there is 
                      one more laser thread. Turn the next right and aim at the 
                      last laser thread towards the top to avoid dying at this late
                      stage. Run to the dead end to finish this assault!
                      Remember, the Lasergun shield cannot protect you against
                      rockets. It is possible to complete this without a Lasergun,
                      in fact, I know someone who has a platinum on it without
                      using one, but getting gold, or even platinum, is a lot
                      easier with a Lasergun.

    Strategy:         This is slightly different to most matches you have played in 
                      because of the fact that your score does show up until the 
                      end. This can be very frustrating when you are one or two off 
                      gold. The Dinosaurs only take one crossbolt to kill, so find 
                      an area that you feel comfortable to stay in (maybe the pond 
                      area) and kill all the dinosaurs to see. Try to reload when 
                      you see nothing rather than reloading when you have to as the 
                      reload time of the crossbow takes a while.

    Strategy:         The only tip I can give you is to use the Plasma Autorifle or
                      the Soviets. Why? Because grenades will help you a lot. If
                      you use your grenades wisely, you should be able to get a
                      gold pretty quickly.

       3.1   Introduction   CINT   
    Challenges are slightly different to arcades...why? Challenges are not arcade
    scenarios. They are not something you can play in an arcade match for fun with
    your mates. Challenges set in TimeSplitters 2 involve smashing glass, beheading
    zombies, doing single mini-missions, shooting cardboard cut-outs, collecting 
    bananas and killing innocent-looking monkeys.
    The format given will be the same as I have shown in my arcade strategies, so
    you should be very familiar with it. One thing that will not be included though
    is the "type" as it does not apply to Challenges. They are harder that Arcade
    matches in general, but they shouldn't pose much of a problem if you have 
    completed all the arcade matches...should they?
       3.2   Strategies   CSTR   
     1)  Glass Smash
    Title:            Pane in the Neck
    Description:      Using Soviet grenades, destroy every glass pane
    Location:         Siberia Dam (Outside)
    Rewards:          Rotating Heads Cheat
    Score for Gold:   18 seconds (Platinum: 11 seconds)
    Difficulty:       6/10
    Strategy:         There are many ways of doing this, but in my opinion, this is 
                      the most effective. Run up the stairs and aim two grenades at 
                      the huge building in one of the windows on the second floor. 
                      If you have done this right, the first grenade should break 
                      the window, the second should go to break the door window at 
                      the back. That building is now done. Run round the back of 
                      the building along side the low wall (beside the entrance of 
                      the dam) and fire a grenade in one of the windows there. 
                      Continue forward until you can see the windows of the next 
                      window clearly. Fire a grenade there - be careful not to hit 
                      the lamp post. Now go in between the two buildings you have 
                      just fired grenades at and this should take you past the huge 
                      building again. Fire a grenade through the door window of the 
                      final building (make sure it doesn't go through a window) and 
                      you have done!
    Title:            Bricking It
    Description:      Same as the previous challenge apart from you have bricks!
    Location:         Siberia Dam (Outside)
    Rewards:          Brick (Weapon)
    Score for Gold:   35 seconds (Platinum: 27.9 seconds)
    Difficulty:       5/10
    Strategy:         A tip before starting...use the secondary fire - it fires 
                      further! Run up the stairs again until you are facing the six 
                      windows of the huge building. Break every single one using 
                      the secondary fire. Run to the right of the building and 
                      break the three windows there. Run up the stairs and strafe 
                      to break the door window with ease. At this stage, you should 
                      be at 15 seconds if you are going for a gold. Go on the 
                      wooden platform and fall off from it to the right. Now 
                      destroy the glass panes of that window and go to the left of 
                      the building for the door window. Now proceed to the building 
                      near the stairs. Destroy all those panes, then proceed to the 
                      last one and do the same.

    Score for Gold:   32 panes (Platinum: 32 panes in 47.9 seconds)
    Difficulty:       6/10
    Strategy:         This is slightly harder. When you start immediately run 
                      backwards until you can see some huge panes above you. Use 
                      the secondary fire to destroy all the panes on that side. Try 
                      to shoot whilst strafing. When you run to the other side, 
                      make sure you break the three in the middle, where you 
                      started. Finish off the other side to complete it. This can 
                      be frustrating, but don't give up!
     2)  Behead the Undead

    Strategy:         Try to aim at the zombies' heads and shoot them before they 
                      enter the room you're in, if you can. If too many zombies 
                      comes in, circle them and shoot them off one by one. The 
                      zombies can also kill each other. Also try to survive as many 
                      waves as you can, to collect bonuses. If you follow the tips,
                      you shouldn't have much trouble obtaining a gold.

    Strategy:         A lot harder, get the fire extinguisher(s) on the other side 
                      of the poles - just in case you get caught on fire. Use your 
                      crosshair if you can to get headshots. Use the quick-switch 
                      method to reload your Tactical-12 Gauge instantly (switch 
                      weapons then back). With a lot of practice, you will
                      eventually get that elusive gold.

    Score for Gold:   20,000 points (Platinum: 25,000 points)
    Difficulty:       7/10
    Strategy:         This is slightly easier than the previous one, but when you 
                      get to wave four or five, you better watch out. Keep looking 
                      around for any zombies that happen to surprise you from 
                      behind, and remember to circle them and run around them if 
                      things get a bit too crowded.
     3)  Infiltration
    Title:            Silent but Deadly
    Descripion:       Infiltrate the first part of the Siberia mission!
    Location:         Siberia Dam (Outside)

    Score for Gold:   1,000 (Platinum: 1,000 in 39.9 seconds)
    Difficulty:       7/10
    Strategy:         This one took me a while to get pass. Remember - if someone 
                      spots you in this level, nearly everyone else does! Try to 
                      get headshots with all the guards you encounter with. Start 
                      off by getting the Sniper Rifle and shoot the guard on top of 
                      the stairs in the head. Then shoot the camera's lens nearby. 
                      Continue a bit forward and wait until the guard patrolling 
                      between the two visible buildings walks out of sight. Run 
                      through the gates and stay to the right side of the right 
                      building. Now when possible, shoot him in the head. Walk 
                      forward to the next building (straight ahead) and shoot the 
                      guy in the head through the door window. Go round that 
                      building so you're behind the female guard (Lt. Frost) and 
                      again shoot her in the head. Go round the next building and 
                      you will see a guard (Capt. Snow) patrolling near the metal 
                      stairs. When his back is turned away from you, kill him. Get 
                      out your Temporal Uplink and get inside the huge building to 
                      turn off the cameras. Go upstairs to open the dam, then walk 
                      along the wooden planks into the locked building to get the
                      Timed Mines. Chuck a mine on the satellite dish, then run 
                      inside the dam!
                      The route given above is a safe, but slow one only aimed to
                      get gold. If you want a platinum, you must take a different,
                      riskier route.

    Score for Gold:   1,000 (Platinum: 1,000 in 24.9 seconds)
    Difficulty:       5/10
    Strategy:         Run to the ladder, fall off. Approach the guy moving on your 
                      left, then shoot him in the head or punch him there. When the 
                      guy walking along the walkway goes past the next bit, run 
                      straight ahead until you reach some stairs. Run up them and 
                      shoot the next guy when you get to the top (through the
                      windows or from the side). Go down the stairs, killing 
                      another guy along the way, turn right then run out to 
                      complete this challenge!

    Score for Gold:   1,000 (Platinum: 1,000 in 19.9 seconds)
    Difficulty:       5/10
    Strategy:         Simple, just one piece of advice: TAKE YOUR TIME. The first 
                      camera can be avoided by walking straight ahead. Then go to 
                      the second gap, which should be safe from the second camera. 
                      Wait for the second camera to turn away then run and wait
                      just before the corner. Wait until the police car goes past, 
                      then avoid the final few cameras and run to the end!
     4)  Banana Chomp
    Title:            Banana Chomp
    Description:      Collect all the bananas as fast as possible!
    Location:         Aztec (Outside)
    Rewards:          Private Coal
    Score for Gold:   55 seconds (Platinum: 45 seconds)
    Difficulty:       3/10 or 7/10 depending on if you know the route
    Strategy:         Start by walking through the tunnel, collecting the three 
                      bananas. Go to the left side of the pillar to collect a 
                      couple, then go round the far end and come back to get a few 
                      more. Then go round the next pillar for the last two in this 
                      area. Continue through the next area getting one on the ramp, 
                      then go up the stairs facing opposite the ramp to get two 
                      more. Then proceed, turning left at the intersection to get 
                      the banana in the corner.
                      Turn 180 degrees and follow the path until you come to a dead 
                      end with a banana. Step back a bit and then turn left and 
                      continue running whilst collecting a few more bananas. When 
                      you have got those bananas, you should be facing the huge 
                      hole on the right (or close to it). Run through that and go 
                      round to corner you see grabbing another banana. Turn the 
                      next right (not the stairs straight on). Grab the banana in
                      front of you, strafe right to get one there, continue then 
                      strafe right again to get another banana.
                      Run to the back of the room to find two more, then get the 
                      one on the mound. Run through the next pathway, collect a few 
                      more on the way. When you get to the next room, grab the 
                      banana in the far left corner. Go around the rock to see and 
                      grab another one. Go across the log for a couple more, then 
                      go left to get another one, then turn 180 degrees to get the 
                      other one. Go back and cross the log again, then turn right. 
                      Collect that banana then follow the path to collect the last 
                      one there sitting at a dead end!
                      There are a couple of things I will say regarding this
                      challenge. Firstly, put away your Temporal Uplink. After
                      going through this challenge a few times, you should know
                      the route off by heart. The Uplink is relatively big and can
                      get in the way. Also, try to turn corners smoothly where
                      possible. You can cut off a few seconds if you can corner

    Strategy:         Follow the same route as you did in Banana Chomp, but avoid 
                      the zombies. There are a couple of places where you might 
                      have some problems. The most obvious one is the swamp area 
                      (the one with the ramp and stairs) as two zombies come in and 
                      they might block your way. If this happens, restart.

                      Start off by running to the corner, then turn right, 
                      remembering to take the first left. You should have two. Grab 
                      the banana in front of you, then the one on your right. Grab 
                      all five in the pillar room, then move to the next path. Grab 
                      the four in this hallway. When you get to the fourth, take a 
                      sharp left. Grab five in the next room, don't bother with the 
                      one on the far side. Head down to the next area, grabbing the 
                      group of five in front of you, then head to the right near
                      the dead end for the last one.
                      If you want a platinum but you have earned a gold, reset your 
                      game before it saves! There is a glitch, and if you let it 
                      save, you will never get the platinum on this profile.

                      points for each one. Make sure you thoroughly go past every 
                      building and do not shoot any civilians (yes, that includes
                      the boy with the balloon). Follow it and you should get a
                      decent score with a gold. Cayene of Doma has made a more

    Difficulty:       8/10
    Strategy:         Patience is what you need. Get ready to restart a LOT. I will 
                      try to lead you through this nasty challenge, and like Take 
                      'em Down, where you shoot matters (maximum for each cut-out 
                      is again 100 points). Remember to use your rifle every time. 
                      When you start, run up to the window. Aim slightly to the
                      right at the top of the blue crate. Shoot at the waist of 
                      this cut-out. The next one appears lower and more to the left 
                      of the first. Aim at the top right leg. Aim directly below 
                      you in the middle, shooting at the backside, then
                      remove the sight, run backwards to the back right of the 
                      room, and another cut-out should appear (aim for the 
                      Run back to the window, and if you can, there is a demon to 
                      the right. Shoot in the groin. If you missed, you have a 
                      chance later. Aim to the low right of the blue crate you 
                      aimed at first and another cut-out will appear. Aim at her 
                      thigh. Aim down and left to the grey wall and aim at the 
                      man's waist. Now aim for the far right corner and aim for the 
                      backside again. Directly in front of you on the left hand 
                      side of the crate should be another cut-out, shoot in the 
                      groin. Aim down a bit more and to the left, and a moving 
                      cut-out should appear. Shoot her in the backside. If you 
                      missed the demon earlier (as stated), now's the time. Go back 
                      up there and it should reappear. Shoot in the groin. If you 
                      did previously shoot the demon, go back there anyway. There 
                      is a woman to the right of where the demon was. Shoot her.
                      The next one appears right at the back, on the ground to the
                      left of those boxes. Shoot the cut-out, then stand on the 
                      left side of the window and look to the middle right. Shoot 
                      the man that appears, then quickly go to the right side of 
                      the window and look all the way to the left. A target appears 
                      almost side on. Now the next one is almost directly below (to 
                      the right). Then quickly aim straight ahead, high on top of 
                      the crates in the distance. Finally, aim down at the grating 
                      to the left. Shoot the final one quickly before the time runs

    Title:            Badass Buspass Impasse
    Description:      Collect the brain, then run back to the portal
    Location:         Streets
    Rewards:          Badass Cyborg
    Score for Gold:   1 minute 30 seconds (Platinum: 45 seconds)
    Difficulty:       6/10
    Strategy:         The best thing to do is run past everyone then run back to 
                      the time portal, but that's a bit tricky. What I usually do 
                      is with the pistol, kill the first guard with a head shot, 
                      then kill the woman that jumps out of the corner with a head 
                      shot too. Collect the Soviet, then kill anyone that's in your
                      way. Don't stop for anything. When you get the brain, there 
                      will be Splitters which will make things harder - just keep 
                      on running to the end.
                      If you have created a map (using MapMaker) and have played in 
                      it, you will get some sort of medal. This is a glitch, but 
                      you do not get access to the next challenge or get Badass 
                      Cyborg until you have actually completed it yourself.
    Title:            But Where Did The Batteries Go?

    Difficulty:       6/10
    Strategy:         This may seem hard, but there are two armours in this level 
                      to help you. Run to the entrance, head through the doors, go 
                      to the next room. Shoot the ChassisBot in front of you, then 
                      the one on the left. Continue. Turn the corner and you will 
                      see a R109. Kill him and get his Plasma Autorifle. For all
                      moving turrets, chuck a grenade into the black area to kill 
                      it. When you get to the cooling towers (where you are on the 
                      grated platform), turn a sharp right to see a R109 with a 
                      Minigun. Take it. Just after this bit there is a full body 
                      armour. Also take that. Use your Minigun to mow your way 
                      through to the batteries. When you have, go back as fast as 
                      possible. Near the start (where the R109 with the Plasma 
                      Autorifle was) there is another full armour. Get that and get 
                      into the time portal.

    Rewards:          The Cropolite
    Score for Gold:   2 minutes (Platinum: 1 minute)
    Difficulty:       8/10
    Strategy:         Try to ignore zombies if you can. When you start, go straight 
                      forward and then turn left. Turn the next corner and keep 
                      going straight forward until you reach the end of the 
                      hallway. Turn the right corner then run across the large room 
                      to the next hallway (several zombies will appear at this 
                      point, try to dodge them). Then run to the next room (with 
                      the stairs) and run straight across to the next hallway. 
                      Continue until you get to another room. Turn right, going 
                      into a hallway, then turn another right and go in that door, 
                      then turn left across the room with the beds or cots.
                      You should now encounter some stairs. Sometimes a burning 
                      zombie (Crispin) comes down the stairs. If this is the case, 
                      stand right of the stairs, then when the zombie falls down, 
                      run up the stairs. Go past the balcony (you'll come back here 
                      later) and into the other room (with the beds). If more 
                      burning zombies appear, climb onto the beds to get to the 
                      other side. Once you have done that, turn left at the
                      intersection (usually another Undead Priest will appear with 
                      his Shotgun), turn right around the corner, grab the bones 
                      lying there, then turn back. Run back through the room with 
                      the beds (if you catch fire here, keep going - you're
                      nearly at the end). Go back to the balcony, jump off it, then 
                      run into the time portal in front of you!
                      Zombies and Undead Priests will respawn if you kill an enemy. 
                      Try to minimise your killing to avoid Undead Priests with 
                      Shotguns appearing - and wasting your health.
     7) Monkeying Around
    Title:            Simian Shootout
    Description:      Shoot as many monkeys as you can to gain points
    Location:         Mexican Mission
    Rewards:          Insect Mutant
    Score for Gold:   1,800 points (Platinum: 2,000 points)
    Difficulty:       8/10
    Strategy:         This best position to stand (in my opinion) is to stand just 
                      in front of the fountain. Try to memorise where the monkeys 
                      will appear so you know when to stand on the left, the right, 
                      or aiming at the bell. Combos do help a lot. A lot of
                      monkeys appear towards the end, and so this is a good
                      chance to get high combos.

    Description:      Shoot as many melons as you can!

    Rewards:          Misfit
    Score for Gold:   2,500 points (Platinum: 3,000 points)
    Difficulty:       6/10
    Strategy:         When you start, run to the barrier then adjust the scope so 
                      it is zoomed out all of the way. Aim slightly lower. This 
                      might take some adjusting, but if you get it right, every 
                      monkey with a melon will go through that spot. Keep shooting 
                      those melons off, trying to get combos, and you will get the 
                      gold needed for this challenge.

    Score for Gold:   8,000 points (Platinum: 9,300 points)
    Difficulty:       9/10
    Strategy:         This is one of the hardest challenges. Try to stick to the
                      left side or the middle. Remember to turn the secondary fire 
                      on and if it overheats too much, turn it off then turn it 
                      back on. Auto-Aim helps a lot and try to concentrate on the 
                      monkeys rolling into the dam. To get combos, try shoot to the 
                      back in the distance and hope you shoot those monkeys. Don't 
                      use the crosshair and keep moving in front of the monkeys if 
                      you can. This challenge relies on luck a lot and also high 
                      Another tip you might want to try is this: To get combos, try 
                      waiting until you see loads of monkeys in your sight, then 
                      shooting all the monkeys you see.
                      Andy also gives a tip to help you conquer this challenge:
                      | "Shoot like crazy at the fog in the middle because that's |
                      | where all the monkeys come from. By doing this I kept on  | 
                      | getting combos of eight."                                 |
                      This helps a lot, but try not to overheat the minigun by 
                      doing this. Here's another tip to help you conquer Dam 
                      Bursters from Stuckinabox:
                      | "Instead of staying in one place, continuously strafe     |
                      | back and forth across the dam so you can get a dead on    |
                      | aim for each monkey. This will make them a heck of a lot  |
                      | easier to hit."                                           |
                      This gives you more of a chance to hit those monkeys and so
                      increasing your chances of a high combo. Thanks for the tips

       4.1   Frequently Asked Questions   FRAQ   
    Q: Do you know a good strategy for Dam Bursters?
    A: Take a look at the Dam Bursters strategy. A couple of people have also
       submitted some of their tips! Keep trying and you will succeed. Good luck!
    Q: What do I have to do in order to unlock Big Tony?
    A: To unlock Big Tony, you have to complete Chicago in Normal (Story). This can
       be done by yourself or in co-op.
    Q: I've got many points on Fight Off The Living Dead but I can't get platinium.
       How many points is required for platinium?
    A: A lot of sources say it's 145,000, but I do not have platinum on this
       challenge so I cannot confirm it.
    Q: How many platinums and golds do you have?
    A: I currently have 42 platinums and 24 golds, but now I only play it for
       multiplayer fun. I do know quite a few people with better scores, including 
       a couple achieving all 66 platinums.
    Q: What is surf time?
    A: Surf time is where you move without doing so without using your controller.
       The only example I can think of in Arcade mode is getting on the crane in
       the Hangar level. Going up the lift in Siberia does not count because it is
       in Story mode, not in Arcade.
    Q: What Challenge do I have to complete to unlock TimeSplitters 'Story'
    A: To unlock TimeSplitters 'Story' Classic, complete three sections in
       4.2   Some Final Tips   SFTP   
    [ This section has been renamed and re-written for v2.00 ]
    Before I close this FAQ, I will give a few more tips.
    Remember, if you are in battle with another bot or human, keep strafing and 
    moving. You will be a much harder target to hit than staying with your feet 
    stuck to your ground.
    When playing against humans, or bots in a lot of cases, search for a decent 
    weapon if you are constantly getting outgunned.
    Regarding arcades and challenges, don't get too mad if you get stuck. Keep 
    restarting and putting the effort in and eventually you will be rewarded. 
    Sometimes a bit of luck is all you need.
    Try to aim for heads rather than arms or legs. The exception is when using a 
    Rocket or Homing Launcher, where aiming at the legs is more wise.
    I've ran out of tips to give you now. All I can now say is good luck.
