|Prototype Cheats and Hints!|
How to Cheat:
Go to 'Extras' ->'Cheats', and enter the following codes. A message will confirm correct code entry.
Rightx2, Left, Down, Upx3, Down - Unlock surfing ability.
Hints: Easy Experience:
Note: You can most likely do this trick with any helicopter. Do the mission where you have to steal a
helicopter to find the right hunter. You are told to go fly over the Infected area and scan the Infected
water towers for a suitable enemy type. Instead of doing that, fly to the Infected area and
start shooting the Infected water towers that are around all infected the areas. You get about 8,000
experience points for each. Shoot 25 of them and you will get the achievement or trophy Xbox
360 PlayStation3 for killing the Infected water towers without them hatching. As long as you properly
hijack the helicopter and no one suspects you as an enemy, no one will attack you while this is
going on. One water tower requires one missile. Make sure to steady it so you do not waste missiles.
One flythrough with this helicopter can net you 1,192,000 experience points, assuming you can
find one water tower per missile. You can get even more than that if you use your machine gun. After
getting about 500,000 experience points, crash the helicopter and repeat the process again from
Note: This trick only works once you acquire the ability to hijack helicopters and have Infected Vision,
received later in the game. Hijack a helicopter. Once you do so, activate Infected Vision. Look
for the bright orange water towers scattered throughout the level, primarily in the Infected areas.
Shoot them with the helicopter's weapons. For each water tower you destroy, you will receive 10,000
experience points, which are important this far in the game. Note: Water towers respawn continuously
for unlimited experience points.
An easy way to get experience points is to get a helicopter, preferably without alarm. Go to any Infected
area and search for water towers containing Hunters. These are easily found by going to the area
where the crows are circling. This indicates where an Infected water tower is located. Lock on
to it and blow it up with a rocket. It should only take one with a direct hit. You will receive 8,000
experience points per water tower. With 200 rockets in an attack helicopter you can get 1,600,000
total experience points. Then using the machine gun, destroy forty more towers. You can then
use the remaining homing missiles to blow up a hive for more points. Get another helicopter and repeat
the process. The water towers will respawn after a short amount of time.
Hints: Easy 'Half-Truths' Achievement:
An easy spot to complete 'Half-Truths' is the mission in which you lead the Leader Hunter to Ragland.
Complete your objectives unnoticed [shouldn't be a problem] until you are prompted to lure the Hunter.
Look at the map and notice that it is mainly covered in red [infected zones] and two blue [military]
zones, one on the far east and far west. There is an unclaimed area straight up the middle.
Stick to this path and you won't alert the military as they have their hands full already.
Hints: Unlimited EP Exploit:
On mission 22/31, where you get the first cell phone cut scene, you'll be asked to jack a Black ops helicopter.
Once you have the helicopter, you are prompted to pick up a few Black Ops guys and then
destroy a Hive. Do not destroy the Hive!
You now have a helicopter with unlimited missiles, no time limit, and as long as you don't destroy the
Hive, you can blow up anything else without it kicking off the alert meter. This also allows you
to get out of the helicopter without it ending the mission [useful for collecting Memory Strands].
The easiest way to get EP in this is to switch to your Infected Vision and fly around blowing up infected
water towers. You can save your game in the middle of this mission if you need a break and do
the same thing. You can max out your skills and then some using this exploit.
Hints: Better Landings:
When jumping, use a dash just before landing. If timed correctly and if the drop was not too great, you
should land at near full speed.
Hints: Water Disguise:
If you are near water, and the military is everywhere, then hop into the water and change your disguise
immediately as your entire body enters in the water. You'll can then escape unnoticed.
Hints: Mind the Crows:
Infected water towers are always circled by squawking crows. This makes it easier to track them down.
Hints: Easy 'Butcher' Achievment:
Once you've attained the Critical Mass and Tendril Devastator upgrades, simply choose a disguise [in
order to keep a low profile], walk into the middle of Times Square, wait until you are surrounded
by people and unleash the Tendril Devastator this will land you 'The Butcher.'
Hints: Defeating the Final Boss:
Quickly switch to Armor and Blade after the cinematic ends. Having Infected Vision will help. Stay away
from the Boss until he starts to jump. After he lands, attack him with an Air Blade Slash. He will
become stunned after a few good hits. Grab him and repeatedly punch. If you are taken down to
critical level, use a Devastator move to stun him.
Hints: Easy 'Misconception' Achievement and EP:
The 'Misconception' Achievement requires you to destroy 25 infected water towers before they hatch. Do
this after you get your powers back -- when Ragland helps you -- as there seem to be more of them
in abundance. Lock on to one and run up the appropriate building, jump to the roof and use the
flying kick attack, causing more than half of the life bar to be depleted. Upon landing, follow up
quickly with a combo. To make it a little faster, use the 'claws' powers.
Later in the game this becomes even easier. Just hijack a helicopter, fly over infected areas and keep
tapping the target button until you target a water tower [or helicopter or Hive] and fire away.
The 'Friendly Fire' and 'Projectiles' Kill Events as both have helicopters sitting next to the Event
markers, so grab those and exit the event for a free 'copter.
Hints: Unlock New Game+:
Once you beat Story Mode, you'll be able to play through it again with all of your powers and upgrades.
Hints: Easy Thermobaric Tank:
First you must unlock the Kill Event called 'Rolling Thunder,' which appears between the East Village
and the Lower East Side [one block from the East coast]. Right next to the Event is a Thermobaric
Tank. Jumping into it will activate the Event, but you can back out of it before the Event begins.
Do this correctly and you'll have a free tank. Note: If you exit the tank it or use it to destroy
a Hive or Base it will vanish. You can grab it again at the Event point.
Hints: Unlock Platinum Events:
Earning a Gold in every event unlocks Platinum Events, which are more difficult.
