    The world has gone to hell, and now anarchy reigns in the streets. A mercenary 
    named Jack and a member of the police force, Leo, fight on opposite sides as 
    they both chase down the same fugitive, for vastly different reasons.

    At the start of the game, you will get to choose between the "Black Side" or 
    "White Side" after the opening cut-scenes. If you choose Black Side, then you 
    will see the events of the game unfold through Jack's eyes. If you choose 
    White Side, then you play as Leo. After completing the Black Side or White 
    Side, the game will start over and you will play through as the opposite side.
    For the purposes of this guide, I chose to go through the Black Side first, so 
    if you chose the White Side, then scroll down. The missions between the two 
    sides are indeed different.
    --->BLACK SIDE<---
                               STAGE 1: ALTAMBRA
    Free Mission 01. The Killseekers
    This mission serves to introduce you to the various enemy types and other 
    mechancis in the game. Your goal is to kill 50 enemies in 5 minutes or less. 
    The first batch of enemies will be easy to kill, but they will be replaced by 
    another wave. Continue to kill them all.
    Then a truck with more enemies will drive into the area. This is to teach you 
    about the various environmental hazards that will show up in the game. Vehicles
    and other dangers tend to show up in the midst of battles to wreak havoc. 
    Avoid the vehicle and then kill its passengers.
    Next up will be Killseekers, the human-like enemies that bleed blue blood that 
    you've been fighting all this time, to start chucking Molotovs at you from a 
    nearby rooftop. You can throw an explosive barrel at them or run up and take 
    them out with more personal means.
    When they're dead, even more will spawn on the ground below. Kill them, and 
    then you'll have to fight Pyro Killseekers. These guys have red tanks on their 
    backs that are connected to flamethrowers. Work your way through them. Their 
    explosions won't hurt you if you are in the middle of a combo.
    When they're dead, even more will spawn, and a couple will be brought on a 
    floating vehicle driven by a Molotov-wielding Killseeker. Continue to wipe out 
    the enemies until you've killed 49. Your final battle will be with the lizard-
    like Executioner.
    This mutant is large and has a huge hammer it will try to attack with. The 
    best strategy is to run around it in a circle and attack its back when you 
    have the chance, until it eventually is killed.
    Main Mission 01. The King of Altambra
    Here you have to fight Big Bull. Big Bull is a mechanical bull that has a 
    rocket strapped to his back that allows him to fly around and such. He may 
    seem intimidating, but he's actually very easy. The key to him is to just be 
    relentless. Attack him like none other, but run out of the way if he goes for 
    an attack.
    Knocking him in the lava is also helpful and very easy to do. Just wail on him 
    and back him up to the edge, then continue to hit him until he falls in the 
    lava. Be careful not to fall into the lava yourself. After about a quarter of 
    his health is gone, his gang will fight you.
    Kill them all, and then resume the battle with Big Bull. The same strategy 
    applies, except now he will add jumping attacks that are slightly harder to 
    dodge. When his health has been taken down another quarter, flamethrower-toting
    members of his gang will fight you, so be sure to take them out.
    Big Bull will start to fight you again without really waiting for all his 
    gang members to be dead this time. Continue to wail on him. After another 
    quarter of his health is gone, a large pot will dump lava from above in the 
    center area, so avoid that area and continue to fight with Big Bull on the 
    outer rim of the battle area until his health is completely depleted and he is 
    Free Mission 02. A Chaser's Work
    The Bar-Bot is being terrorized by a group of Killseekers. Go save him from 
    the first group, and then follow him. He will have a health bar at the top of 
    the screen. If that health bar is completely depleted, the Bar-Bot will be 
    killed and the mission will fail.
    More Killseekers will attack the Bar-Bot, so save him again and then keep 
    following him and protecting him. An Executioner will show up, so kill him 
    quickly as he can do real damage to the Bar-Bot. Keep fighting off the 
    Killseekers, and a truck will also blow through the area, so be sure to avoid 
    it. Then a Mutant will show up as you near the bar.
    Mutants are big and dangerous. They look like giant versions of the Hunters 
    from Resident Evil. Lay into the Mutant and try to block his attacks. Then 
    keep hitting him and avoiding his attacks. Killseekers will show up to fight 
    the Bar-Bot while you are fighting the Mutant, so fight them off before 
    returning to the Mutant.
    When enough damage has been done to the Mutant, you can press B for an 
    Execution attack. Then just follow the Bar-Bot to the bar to end the mission.
    Main Mission 02. Target Sighted
    Drones will attack. You get to choose between Jack or Big Bull for this 
    mission. I went with Big Bull just to play as a different character. This 
    mission is designed to introduce you to all of the different drone type 
    enemies in the game.
    The first drones are easy enough to kill. You can take their rifles from them 
    after they've been defeated. Keep killing the drones, but don't use their 
    rifles. Save those for later.
    A helicopter with chainsaw blades attached will show up next. Use the rifle to 
    blow it up. Then flying drones will be next. Jump up and hit them to make them
    fall out of the air so that you can kill them on the ground. When they're 
    dead, bombs will be dropped on the bridge.
    These bombs will cause a chain reaction of explosions that cause cars to 
    hurdle at you from a distance. They will basically cut this map in half, 
    though there is a small window where you can run across the street and not 
    worry about being flattened by a car.
    These new drones will be Laser Drones. Their lasers do a ridiculous amount of 
    damage, and when they die, they turn into an explosive time bomb. Use any 
    remaining rifle rounds to pick them off from a distance, then move in close 
    and waste them one by one.
    Free Mission 03. Gunfight
    You can't actually fail this mission. You just see how well you can do using a 
    rifle with unlimited ammo. Just walk around the level and shoot the drones 
    with the rifle. Helicopters will show up later, and you can shoot them or 
    catch their missiles by pressing B and tossing the missile back.
    Main Mission 03. Your Favorite Pimp's Pimp
    Baron from MadWorld shows up to fight Jack. Just wail on him. Honestly, that 
    is the best strategy. He does have some pretty powerful attacks, so just run 
    out of the way and keep hitting him. Use any powerups you have if the going 
    gets tough.
    When Baron has a quarter of health left, a cargo plane will start coming 
    down. Now you have to relentlessly kill Baron before the plane comes down or 
    else you will fail the mission.
                             STAGE 2: PORT VALENDA
    Free Mission 01. Gale Force
    Jack will automatically hop in the vehicle. Your goal is to complete five 
    laps before the time runs out. If you pick up the green checkpoints as you 
    drive, you'll be given more time.
    Follow the red sets with the black arrows to complete the laps around the 
    stage. This is a very straight-forward driving mission. The controls in the 
    vehicle are a bit different than the ground controls, though.
    You still move with the left analog stick. Just tilt it forward. There is no 
    need to hold RT or A or anything like you would usually in a racing game. 
    You can press X to use a flamethrower, which I recommend doing when nearing 
    larger enemies. Press A to jump and Y to dash.
    Each lap will see the type of enemy increase in power, but just ignore them 
    and drive on by. If you want more points, use your flamethrower as much as 
    possible to kill enemies, and plow over the smaller guys.
    Main Mission 01. The Gargoyle Platoon
    The Gargoyles are Transformer-like enemies that can transform between three 
    different modes. Get on the Gatling Gun and destroy the Gargoyles as they fly 
    close to you. There will be two waves of Gargoyles to take out.
    When the flying Gargoyles have been defeated, the remaining ones will land 
    behind you and transform into robot mode. You can get back on the Gatling gun, 
    turn around, and blast the hell out of them still, or you can hop off the 
    Gatling gun and fight them head-on with melee attacks.
    The first three you will have to fight one-on-one. Then two Gargoyles will 
    attack you at once. They are like mini-bosses and have a health bar at the 
    top of the screen, but they are also very easy to defeat, especially if you 
    use the Gatling gun.
    Free Mission 02. Parasite Infestation
    Parasites are these annoying Leech-looking enemies that will jump on you, 
    causing you to button mash and shake the analog stick in order to escape. You 
    have to kill 50 of them. They are easily killed, but as they increase in 
    number, they become more and more of a threat.
    A Kraken will join the battle in the middle and smash its tentacles through 
    the glass. This causes the area to start filling with water, and so now you 
    are working on a time limit. The Kraken's tentacle will block the exit 
    route, and it will try to hit you with its other tentacle, which is also 
    Upon killing 50 parasites, your next goal is to damage the Kraken's tentacle 
    to the point where it will move out of the way of the elevators. Mutants will 
    show up to fight now as well, but ignore everything and focus on the middle of
    the Kraken's tentacle. Wail on it until enough damage is done that it moves, 
    and then use the elevator to escape.
    Main Mission 02. The Creature from Valenda
    Now you have to do a boss fight with the Kraken! Black Baron and Mathilda will 
    be there to help you out for the first part of the battle. Grab the debris 
    made when the Kraken smashes its tentacles on the ground, and then chuck the 
    chunks of concrete at the Kraken. This is pretty difficult to accomplish, but 
    you have to be really close to the edge in order to throw the concrete chunks 
    far enough to hit the Kraken. It will also smash its tentacles down, which 
    gives you the chance to attack the soft spots of its tentacles to do much 
    more damage.
    After the Kraken is damaged enough, it will start trying to take the boat 
    down. Baron and Mathilda will go prepare a weapon to defeat it, leaving you 
    behind to continue the fight. Run to the vents to be launched to the next 
    area, and then hang tight and fight the parasites here.
    Eventually, the Kraken will smash the platform you're standing on and the 
    fight will be taken to the water. The Kraken will try to lunge with its 
    inner-mouth. If you are able to side-step it and are quick enough, you can 
    attack the side of it to continue to damage the beast. Otherwise, avoid its 
    attacks at all costs.
    Its other attacks include trying to hit you with its tentacles and firing 
    missiles at you with its beak. You can catch the missiles and chuck them back 
    at the Kraken. At some point, it will get really close to your platform and 
    shoot a beam of electricity at you. Avoid the beam, and then pick up the 
    debris left behind to throw it at the Kraken.
    When it is nearly dead, it will start swimming away, but it will leave itself 
    vulnerable. You can get on the Kraken and start punching the inside of its 
    mouth to drain the rest of the health meter, and then Black Baron will use a 
    large saw to slice it in half.
    Free Mission 03. Mutant Suppression
    Your goal here is to kill six Mutants with a time limit. First you have to 
    fight one, then two, then three. Black Baron and Mathilda will show up in the 
    middle of this to help you fight off the Mutants.
    Main Mission 03. The Young Lion
    Leo will confront Jack and now it's time to fight him. There aren't really any 
    gimmicks to Leo except that he's really good at countering attacks, which can 
    leave you both dazed.
    Wail on Leo and be quick to block his attacks. His attacks are easy to 
    counter, but he's fast. If you do enough damage to Leo, he'll crouch, which 
    gives you an opportunity to lay in with some grapple attacks. Leo will then go 
    super-powered, but just employ the same strategy until his health meter is 
                              STAGE 3: HONG LONG
    Free Mission 01. Break It Up
    You have to kill 50 enemies within five minutes. No, it doesn't sound hard, but
    this time around, it is actually quite the challenge. The reason for that is 
    each wave of enemies are drones that are spread far apart, and they can take a 
    while to kill.
    There won't be any new drones for a long while. The game will give you lots of 
    items, but they don't really help out in this situation. Keep fighting the 
    drones, and when they seem to have stopped appearing, that means it's time to 
    check the mini-map for the red dots and move to the next area that has drones.
    If you build up Jack's power and then click the analog sticks down, you can 
    unleash his rampage and kill a bunch of drones subsequently. Flying drones will
    cause the biggest headaches, as they tend to fly away and you'll have to 
    either wait for them to come closer or throw something at them, and there 
    isn't a lot to throw on these rooftops.
    During the final stretch of enemies, you'll be introduced to the Ninja Drones. 
    These guys can become invisible and are quicker than typical drones. However, 
    they have lower health. When they are in their pre-explosion animation, run 
    up and hit them to make them blow up faster to save time.
    Main Mission 01. Night Blooms
    This level is a boss fight with Rin Rin. Rin Rin is another easy boss. She 
    fights similarly to Leo, in that she is fast and dodges a lot of attacks, but 
    the strategy? Just beat the hell out of her. Seriously, button mash and use 
    power attacks as much as possible. If you're quick enough, it's not likely she 
    will even be able to get an attack on you.
    The only thing you really need to keep in mind for this fight is that when 
    Rin Lin's health is taken down to about halfway, she will charge up and become 
    much more powerful, but still easily defeatable.
    Free Mission 02. Cleaning Up Hong Long
    Your goal here is pretty different than anything else you've done. There are 
    energy spheres that need knocked into receptacles so that you can go on to 
    the next area and continue to knock the spheres into the receptacles. On the 
    mini-map, the receptacles are glowing green icons, and they look like little 
    slanted tunnels.
    The first one is easy enough. Just knock the sphere into the receptacle. The 
    sphere will do damage and kill most enemies. After the first one, you'll have 
    three more to deal with. Two will be in corners at the square, and you'll have 
    to knock the third one up a flight of stone stairs.
    Then you'll have six to deal with in one area, but it's no big deal. Mostly 
    ignore the enemies and knock the spheres into all the different receptacles to 
    Main Mission 02. Enter the Ninja
    This is a boss fight with Zero, the dude that controls the Ninja Drones. For 
    this fight, you can choose between Baron, Jack, or Mathilda. I personally 
    went with Baron, as he is a very capable fighter with strong attacks and quick,
    devastating grapples.
    Whoever you pick, Zero will have a bunch of his ninjas helping him with the 
    fight. Kill them and narrow it down until you find Zero, and then focus all 
    your attention on him. The two fighters you don't pick will help you in the 
    battle as well, and all three of you will wail on Zero when all his ninja 
    helpers have been defeated.
    When Zero's health is a quarter depleted, he'll replenish his roster of ninjas 
    and then start performing ninpo attacks from a distance. Get rid of his ninjas,
    then focus on Zero again. Keep repeating the process until Zero is defeated.
    Free Mission 03. Bartender Backup
    10 Bartender robots will run about in the streets, attacked by Killseekers. 
    You have to keep them alive until the time runs out while also killing off all 
    the enemies. The first waves of enemies will be regular Killseekers, and will 
    be easy as pie.
    Next you will be introduced to the Cryo Killseekers. These guys use liquid 
    nitrogen to freeze people, including you. If you get frozen, button mash and 
    shake the left analog stick to break free. These guys have an explosion 
    animation that you can speed up by attacking them while they are about to 
    Later, you will fight Armed Vehicles. These cars are armored and have a 
    machinegun on top. Avoid their initial ramming, then rup to the side of the 
    car after the machinegun stops firing. A few power attacks will destroy the 
    cars pretty quickly.
    The final obstacles will be purple Executioners that are on fire and have 
    metal helmets. As you can probably guess, these are just tougher versions of 
    the Mutants that you fought earlier. Take them on using the same strategies as 
    When they're defeated, the enemies will start randomizing until the time runs 
    out. This is your chance to kill as many enemies as possible to try to get a 
    really high score.
    Main Mission 03. The Wounded Beast
    This is a boss fight with Max. Jack will be aided by Baron and Mathilda in this
    Max is a bit tougher than your typical bosses. He can teleport, and can block 
    multiple attacks with ease. He also does combos that can take away a chunk 
    of your health meter easily. I recommend wasting any items you have on him 
    right off the bat, and then focus on using your Rampage if you have it.
    Fight Max like you would any other enemy, but use more caution. If you are near
    death, retreat and let Baron and Mathilda take on Max for the rest of the 
    fight. When his health meter is depleted, the battle won't be over, as you 
    have to complete a button mashing QTE against him to finish him off. If you 
    fail the QTE, then you can just hit him a few more times to defeat him.
                               STAGE 4: BARI SHUR
    Free Mission 01. Hive of Scum and Villainy
    This time around, you have to fight off 100 enemies. The enemies attack in 
    large groups, so just run around and slice and dice through them all. The 
    first waves will just be Killseekers, and are disposed of easily enough.
    The next waves will include some new foes. Poison Killseekers show up. They 
    shoot a green, dangerous gas. Mutant Plants are new enemies as well. They 
    will swallow you to grow even larger, but if you can take them out before 
    they have a chance, they are almost not even a threat. Focus on them first, 
    then worry about the other enemies in the area.
    A more powerful version of the armed cars will be next. They will fire 
    machineguns as well as flamethrowers. Destroy them to the best of your 
    abilities, and keep pushing through the enemies until you have defeated all 
    When that's done with, it's time to face off against Cybrid Joe, the boss of 
    this mission. Cybrid Joe is an easy enough fight. He has a spinning attack 
    that causes a fire tornado that erupt from his body, but it is still very 
    possible to defeat him, as he doesn't have a high defense.
    Main Mission 01. Black Fire, White Ice
    This mission is just a boss fight with Sasha. You get to choose between Baron 
    or Mathilda for this fight. Sasha, however, is incredibly easy, and whoever 
    you don't pick will help you fight, making this rather mindless battle that 
    much simpler.
    Free Mission 02. Attack of the Drones
    See how many drones you can kill within the time limit. You have to get over 
    50 kills for the Platinum medal. Item drops are plentiful in this level, and 
    cargo planes will drop even more items later on, so use items as much as 
    possible if it gets tough killing the stronger drones.
    There will also be a carpet bombing near the end, so save your rampage 
    ability. When the bombers come in, use Rampage and then take out all the 
    drones in the vicinity while also avoiding the bomb damage.
    Free Mission 03. Mutation Marches On
    You have five minutes to kill five Super Mutants. Super Mutants are, as you 
    can imagine, stronger versions of the regular Mutants that you have been 
    fighting throughout the rest of the game. They will show up one at a time, 
    and there are item drops all over to help you out.
    Specifically, the rifle will kill them very easily. In fact, it just takes a 
    few shots, and if you get a critical hit, one shot, so you can really blow 
    through this mission if you manage to get good shots with the rifle.
    Main Mission 02. Butcher's Banquet
    Jack will be joined by Big Bull and Rin Rin for this mission. First, you have 
    to fight Cthulhu, a large robot that has shields all over its body. Its shields
    are purple at first, and you can't really deal any damage to him. Just focus 
    all your attention on his shields until they are destroyed. From there, you 
    can deal a lot of damage to Cthulhu, but avoid the large laser beam he fires 
    from his center, as it will kill you with a single shot.
    When Cthulhul's health has been completely depleted, run up to him and press 
    B to perform an exectuion. Following this, you have a standard battle against 
    Zero, though he has a high amount of defense this time, and won't retreat. 
    A missile launcher will be available to use in the middle of the fight, so use 
    it if you want to the fight to end quicker.
    Main Mission 03. End of the Chase
    This is a boss fight with Max, and it's very easy, especially if you have 
    any weapons elft over from the Butcher's Banquet. Max does have a high 
    defense if you don't have any weapons to hit him with, but it's still not a 
    big problem defeating him.
    --->WHITE SIDE<---
                               STAGE 1: ALTAMBRA
    Free Mission 01. Urban Pacification
    Five minutes to kill 50 enemies. The enemies are comprised of Killseekers, 
    then Pyro Killseekers, and finally an Executioner as the last enemy. A truck 
    will show up and start rampaging through the streets. Its exhaust can light you
    on fire, so avoid it as you kill the enemies.
    If it seems like you can't find any enemies, keep an eye on the mini-map. 
    Enemies are the red dots, and it's likely that they are on a nearby roof or 
    just around the corner.
    Main Mission 01. The Tenacious Tiger
    This is a boss fight against Durga. Durga is very easy to fight, and plays out 
    like the more typical boss battles in the game. However, the gimmick of this 
    fight is that carpet bombers appear fairly early on, and constantly do runs, 
    dropping bombs.
    To avoid taking damage from the bombs, get Durga in a grapple animation for an 
    attack. This will deal damage to Durga while simulataneously allowing you to 
    avoid taking any damage.
    Free Mission 02. The Fugitive
    A rogue Cybrid Joe robot has a bounty on his head. He will flee from you, so 
    you have to chase him down. To get a sprint going, just tilt the left analog 
    stick toward Cybrid Joe and chase him around. Leo will automatically pick up 
    speed and go faster and faster.
    Upon reaching Cybrid Joe, beat the hell out of him. He is easily damaged, but 
    will run away again after he's been hurt a bit, assuming he manages to get a 
    shot on you and escapes. He will lead you through ambushes of Killseekers, but 
    it's best to just avoid them and continue chasing down Cybrid Joe.
    Cybrid Joe will run throughout the map until you defeat him or the time runs 
    out. If the latter occurs, your fail the mission. He will make you run by a 
    machine that creates a black hole vortex that can cause damage to you, so the 
    best way to avoid that is to just run away from it at sprinting speed to avoid 
    being pulled in.
    Main Mission 02. Holed Up
    You can choose between Nikolai or Leo for this mission. I always like to choose
    the person that isn't the main character for the side, but everyone in this 
    game plays largely the same, so there's not really a difference in playstyles 
    or anything like that to worry about.
    Whoever you pick, the person that you don't pick will stick around to help 
    you fight the enemies. Clear the area of any Killseekers, and then a cut-scene 
    will play in which a ground restructuring occurs. This creates a large hole 
    that leads to the sewer area.
    Go to this hole and follow the tunnel to a center area that is filled with 
    water. Now you have to fight a gauntlet of mutants. With the help of a partner,
    this is a snap.
    Free Mission 03. Mutation & Madness
    This mission introduces you to Berserker Mutants. These are more powerful 
    versions of regular Mutants, but at least you only have to fight one, and 
    five minutes is plenty of time to win this battle. A cargo drop occurs about 
    halfway through, dropping boxes that mostly contain healing orbs, so you can 
    abandon the fight and go heal if need be.
    Main Mission 03. Tiger Wing & Lion Fin
    This is a unique boss fight that actually contains two bosses. One is Durga 
    again and the other is Garuda, a Transformer-like robot that works with 
    Durga. Garuda will be in a flying platform form at first, with Durga riding on 
    top of him.
    They will be out of reach, shooting machineguns and throwing rockets at Leo. 
    When a rocket is shot, press B at the last second to catch it. Then quickly 
    use LT to make a cursor appear, line up the shot, and then toss the missile 
    at Durga to deal damage.
    It will only deal a little bit of damage, but you only have to hit him with 
    about three missiles to make him fly over to the rooftop proper. When he shows 
    up here, deal as much damage as possible using Leo's array of acrobatic melee 
    Durga will then retreat to another nearby rooftop, and Garuda will transform 
    into robot mode. A green arrow will appear above Leo's head, pointing the way 
    to their rooftop. Follow the cage tunnel up to the next roof, and then Sasha 
    will show up and join the fight. You can choose to continue playing as Leo, 
    or you can switch to Sasha.
    They have separate health meters. It doesn't matter who you take out first, 
    but Garuda is easier to kill. When one of their health meters is depleted, 
    they will be out for the rest of the fight, and then you just have to worry 
    about the other guy.
                             STAGE 2: PORT VALENDA
    Free Mission 01. Valenda Sweep
    Leo is hanging on the bottom of the helicopter for this mission. You might have
    hijacked a helicopter drone at some other point in the game. In this mission, 
    you are stuck to the helicopter. The controls are the same; X and Y fire 
    missiles, and the helicopter will constantly fire its machineguns. However, 
    you can't destroy the helicopter in this mission.
    This one is timed, and the goal is to see how many enemies you can defeat 
    within the time limit. Red blips on the mini-map will show you where the 
    enemies are appearing. As waves of enemies are defeated, the enemies will 
    increase in power.
    Main Mission 01. The Merchant of Valenda
    This is a boss fight with Oinkie. In the first area, he will be helped out by 
    a bunch of his gang. They are easily killed, and have no real differences from 
    Killseekers. When they're defeated, focus on Oinkie, or just ignore them and 
    throw everything you have at Oinkie. Either way works.
    When a quarter of his health bar is gone, Oinkie will retreat through a shutter
    door. The door will close, and then a bunch more of his gang members will 
    show up. Defeat them all. The room will fill with fire and automatically 
    damage you, so try to finish them off near the shutter.
    Exit through the shutter when it opens. There will be crates out here right 
    before the lift. These boxes can be destroyed for healing orbs that will 
    replenish some of your health lost in the fire. Get on the lift and ride it to 
    the roof to confront Oinkie again.
    This time Oinkie will inject himself with green serum that turns him into a 
    mutant version of himself. This mutant version of Oinkie is just a beefed up 
    Oinkie. Use the typical strategies. He will occasionally revert back to his 
    original Oinkie form during this fight as well.
    Free Mission 02. Impeding Investigation
    You have to kill 100 enemies within five minutes. Instead of organized waves, 
    this mission will just have a bunch of Killseekers spawn, occasionally along 
    with mutants or Executioners.
    Main Mission 02. A Shadow from the Abyss
    Yet another fight with the Kraken, except this time you are playing as Leo. As 
    Leo, the boss fight with the Kraken is easier. You have Nikolai and sasha 
    helping you in the early stages, plus Leo's agility makes it a lot easier to 
    actually land hits on the Kraken, whereas Jack was at a severe disadvantage 
    due to his clunky size.
    The first fight with the Kraken plays out a bit differently than it did with 
    Jack. The Kraken's tentacles need to be removed one by one. Attack the blue 
    centers of the tentacles as they are on the ground, and avoid them as they 
    are thrashing around.
    Parasites will also appear, but you can mostly ignore them. When the tentacles 
    have been destroyed, the Kraken will ram the boat, causing water to overtake 
    it. Fight off the parasites as the boat is tipping, and then wait for the 
    Kraken to sink it even further.
    Now on a simple platform, you have to fight the Kraken just like Jack did 
    before, but, yet again, it's much easier this time. The Kraken actually gets 
    close enough for you to hit it a lot, and the inner mouth it shoots out can 
    be more easily hit due to Leo's speed.
    Also be sure to catch the missiles it spits and throw them back at it. The 
    best time to throw the missiles is when it shows its orb on the center of its 
    head, and chuck the missile directly at that for maximum damage.
    Free Mission 03. Strike One
    Another mission where the goal is to see how many enemies you can kill before 
    the time limit runs out. The catch with this mission is that the enemies are 
    all Executioners and Mutants. If you kill at least 10, you're guaranteed to 
    get the Platinum. Sasha and Nikolai will show up after the first couple of 
    kills to help you out as more Mutants wil spawn as well.
    Main Mission 03. The Wily Crocodile
    Remember when you played as Jack and fought Leo for the first time? This is 
    exactly like that fight, except the roles are reversed.
                              STAGE 3: Hong Long
    Free Mission 01. Strict Enforcement
    Typical mission of killing as many enemies as possible until the time runs 
    Main Mission 01. Clan of the Crimson Dragon
    This is a battle against two bosses at a time. They are Ai Rin and Fei Rin. 
    You will get to choose between Sasha or Leo, and as always, the person you 
    don't pick will stick around to help in the fight. As far as boss fights go, 
    this one is as straight forward as it gets.
    Free Mission 02. The Transporter
    This is a mission unlike any you've seen before. Pick up the briefcase as 
    instructed and then take it to the objective marker. Then pick up the next 
    briefcase, and just keep running to the next marker. You can use the briefcase 
    as a weapon, but if it is destroyed, then you will revert to its original 
    A green arrow will appear above Leo's head for this mission. It's easy to get 
    the Platinum medal by getting a good time as opposed to defeating a lot of 
    Main Mission 02. The Junk-Seller's Pet
    Oinkie shows up again, but this time he is riding a Berserker! Luckily for 
    you, the Berserker is slow. Choose between Leo or Nikolai, and then beat the 
    Berserker first. To damage him quickly, run around to his back and just keep 
    laying into him until his health meter is completely depleted.
    Next you will be able to take on Oinkie head on. The fight is identical to the 
    earlier boss fight with Oinki.
    Free Mission 03. Compulsory Measures
    You have an infinite rifle for this mission. Just run around and shoot enemies.
    Main Mission 03. Grievous Reunion
    This is a carbon copy of Jack's boss fight against Max, but instead of Jack, 
    Baron, and Mathilda in the battle, it is Leo, Sasha, and Nikolai. Sasha and 
    Nikolai don't join the fight until later in the battle.
                              STAGE 4: BARI SHUR
    Free Mission 01. The Fugitive's Path
    Three Cybrid Joes are running around with $ symbols marking them. Just pick 
    one and chase him down and beat up on him until he's dead. Then go to the next 
    one, and the one after that. Be ready to block their attacks, as they have a 
    flaming wheel kick that deals a ton of damage.
    Occasionally, Killseekers will join them, but not often enough to be that big 
    of a deal. The Cybrid Joes are your top priority and biggest threat.
    Main Mission 01. Defining Justice
    This is a boss fight with Nikolai. Pretty uneventful.
    Free Mission 02. A Valuable Lesson
    You have 10 minutes to fight 10 enemies, specifically, Mutants. You will get 
    the help of a holographic version of Max back from when he was on your side. 
    The final enemy will be a Berserker boss, but just strafe his attacks and hit 
    him from behind.
    Free Mission 03. Berserk Rider
    You get to actually control a Berserker! Just mow down the enemies. X will be 
    a regular attack, and press Y for the Berserker to breathe poison breath. The 
    poison breath isn't that effective, but the regular swiping attacks do a lot 
    of damage.
    You will just be mowing through regular enemies for the initial battles with 
    the Berserker. Whenever it's time to move on to the next idea, the camera 
    will pan to the next area you need to go to in order to fight more enemies.
    Next you will fight a Kraken. The Kraken is easily defeated with the Berserker.
    Destroy the three tentacles, and then climb onto its head. Destroy the eye in 
    its center with a few swipes to completely obliterate the Kraken. Then follow 
    the path to next fight Cthulhu.
    Cthulhu will be just the same as before. However, when you deal the Execution 
    blow, you have to do a button mashing sequence to fill a bar. Mash the buttons 
    that are shown on the screen until the bar is filled. When the bar is filled, 
    the execution will be copleted.
    Main Mission 02. The Old Man and the Desert
    Boss fight with Douglas. When you've defeated Douglas, a bunch of Mutants will 
    pop out of the sand. They will then surround the two of you, which forces Leo 
    and Douglas to team up and fight them off. Keep killing the mutants. They will 
    keep respawning as stronger Mutants, but keep them going until they've all been
    --->RED SIDE<---
    Depending on who you picked at the beginning of the game, Jack (Black Side) or 
    Leo (White Side), will determine who you play as for the final stage of the 
    game. There will be slight cut-scene differences as well.
                                 THE COLISEUM
    Main Mission 01. Destined Duel
    This is a battle between Leo and Jack. If you chose Jack at the beginning of 
    the game, you will resume control of him now to fight Leo. The opposite is 
    true if you chose Leo at the beginning of the Campaign.
    Main Mission 02. Last Things Last
    Now it's time for the final battle with Nikolai. You will have Black Baron, 
    Mathilda, Sasha, and whoever you didn't pick (Jack or Leo) to help you in the 
    fight against Nikolai for the first part of it.
    During the first part, there will be new enemies called BPS Drones that will 
    also be in the area. These BPS Drones are a combination of flying drones and 
    the shield drones, so they can be quite the pain. Nikolai will be flying 
    around the area with a shield, occasionally lowering to the ground to release 
    an electric shockwave across the area.
    Avoid the shockwave by blocking it. If you are quick enough, you can run up and
    attack Nikolai while he's in the air and do damage to his shield. This will 
    sometimes knock him down so that you can continue beating on him while his 
    shield is being damage. When his shield turns red and is destroyed, it is gone 
    for good.
    At this point, Nikolai will do serious damage to your friends, so that it will 
    only be Jack and Leo left. However, without his shield or his drones to help 
    him in the fight, Nikolai is much more vulnerable.

    3. Multiplayer
    - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
    Anarchy Reigns features a multiplayer mode that can be played online through 
    Xbox Live or the PlayStation Network. There are custom lobby options, ranked 
    matches, and player matches. The game types range from Team Deathmatch to 
    Battle Royals, but they all basically revolve around the same concepts taught 
    through the Campaign.
    To unlock new characters for the Multiplayer, you have to complete the Missions
    in the Campaign.
    There are a couple of elements to the game that are unique to the Multiplayer 
    Mode and do not appear in Campaign Mode. The following descriptions of these 
    gameplay mechanics was taken directly from the Anarchy Reigns instruction 
    manual that is included with the game:
    Level Up
    With some game types, your Level will increase after a certain amount of Kills.
    This increases the maximum capacity of both the Vitality Gauge and Killer 
    Weapon Gauge. You will begin the game at Level 1, increasing to a maximum of 
    Level 3. Please note that if your character is killed, you will be regenrated 
    at Level 1.
    When you have successfully achieved Level 3, your character's Attribute will 
    add an effect to certain combos and other attacks, effecting enemies in the 
    following ways:
    FIRE: Temporarily engulfed in flames, limiting movement to walking and jumping.
    ICE: Temporarily frozen and unable to move.
    POISON: Temporarily poisoned, limiting movement to walking and jumping.
    LIGHTNING: Temporarily numbed by an electrical attack and unable to move.
    If your opponent has the same Attribute, the effect's duration will be reduced.

    Items can be found in the Campaign and in Multiplayer. Item orbs can be picked 
    up off the ground or found in boxes that can be smashed. Oftentimes, a 
    civilian will be running through the streets carrying an item box on their 
    head before dropping it or continuing to run around.
    You can carry two items at a time. They are assigned either to the left or 
    right d-pad arrow.
    NOTE: The following information was taken directly from the Anarchy Reigns 
    instruction manual.
    --->EFFECT ITEMS<---
    Protects you from taking damage, though ineffective against Grab attacks. After
    a certain number of hits, the effect will wear off.
    Makes your character invisible to unfriendly eyes for a short period of time.
