Hints, Secrets, Glitches & Easter Eggs

 

Not Chased By Krimson Guard

When you steal any car, drive on the ground. When you see a Krimson Guard Hell Cat above you, press R2. You will hit the bottom of the Hell Cat, but not get chased. Additionally, steal a hovercar and when you see a guard, change to low hover levels. Go fast, and before you hit them, get off quickly. It will smack them without them knowing it was you.

Peace Maker

After you escort the three men down in the sewer, there will be a icon on your radar. It will take you to the Gun course. There will be a light shining on a box. Open it to find a gun. You will see an intermission sequence featuring Jak putting the front of the Peace Maker on a gun. Then, Daxter will say "Finally, our own Peace Maker," and you will have the Peace Maker. Note: It only has ten shots. Also, when you have obtained the Peace Maker, you can charge it and the Krimson Guards will immediately start chasing you.

Defeating Metal Heads

If there are more than one Metal Heads or enemies, double jump and kick in the air. Then, shoot to send out a number of shots. Note: This only works with the gun with the laser pointer in front.

Dark Tornado

If you've gotten enough Metal Head gems to visit the Oracle for the second time, then you will get another REALLY POWERFULL dark power. When you turn into Dark Jak, you'll be able to spin around, and around, and around, then zap all your enemies to oblivion. When you do this move all of time stands still except you while you kill everyone within 20 ft. of you.

Long High Jump

While doing a rolling turbo long jump, right before you land, jump again to get a very high jump.

Sandovervillage

First have 65 orbs to buy scene player act 1. In the middle of it take the disk out and put it back in. If you do this correctly you should be in Sandovervillage.

Shortcut In Race 1

Start you'll go up a ramp and make a left turn well you'll see a gap with the track on the other side if you have a speed boost hit the circle button and jump (L1) right when you get to the edge (I tried without and with the boost) trust me it works I found it while playing.

Handstand

On the very first level if you go back wards you should see a warp gate do a jump smash (x+square) on the side and hit "o" and you should do a hand stand IN THE AIR for 2 seconds.

Unlimited Skullgems

After going into heavenforest, use the teleporter. After you get on top, keep on going forward a little and you will see a platform thing on your right. When you shoot it, it will turn upside down. Now get on it and go forward. Now there should be an elevator thing that takes you down to the ground. Get on it and get down. Keep on going straight. Don't turn left or right. Now follow the path. Now there should be a lot of frogs leaping and coming toward you. Stay back a little and shoot them. There should be a lot of skullgems. Don't go up or the frogs will stop coming. Keep on killing them and get the skullgems. This way you have a lot of skullgems. Unlike other cheats, you don't have to die and go there again to get more skullgems. NOTE: you need to finish the game first.

How To Defeat The Final Boss

After you get full ammo, keep on going in circle until you find a way out (or the place you came in from). Its located on top. Go to it. After you reach there, go to the left corner of it. You should see some kind of rock stairs. Double ump and press circle. Now it should stand on the rock stair. Keep on doing it until you getup to the top. Finally, you are out of that place. Now back up a little so the boss cannot get u. To defeat the boss all you have to do is jump and shoot. And if the robots come, you need to destroy them first. NOTE: you should never jump and shoot if he is about to shoot. Just stand there and wait. There is a pattern on how he shoots.

Dark Powers

After you collect a certain number of Skull Gems, take them to the Oracle to get power-ps for Dark Jak. Here's a list on how many you need, what power, and how to use it:
1. 25 Skull Gems: Dark Bomb-Press X then Square.
2. 200 Skull Gems: Dark Blast-Press Square then X.
3. 200 Skull Gems: Invulnerability- Always active, Dark Jak is invinsible.
4. 100 Skull Gems: Giant Dark Jak- Press R2. Note that the Krimzon Guards will attack you once you activated.

At The Speed Of Orbs

If you are stuck on those speed missions and you can't get a fast ride, go giant Jak or use your hoverboard.

Annoy The Crimson Guards

To do this you double jump onto people's heads. Note: While doing this they will or try to hit you. When doing repeatedly while getting hit you will die.

Vulcan Shock

If you are in a hurry on your hover board and you run in to a guard, get out your Vulcan gun and once you are surrounded by them twist around and start shooting. Soon the guards will be dead. This helps a lot!

Daxter Holds Any Gun

If Jak has equipped any gun (for example, The Blaster), steal a car with the gun still equipped. You will see that Jak has given the gun to Daxter. And if you fire the gun, Daxter will shoot. Or, if you are in a car and equip a gun (for example, The Blaster), Daxter is holding it. if you fire the gun, Daxter will shoot.

More Ammunition

To get more ammo for any of your guns without getting caught, do the following. Make sure you are in a place where there are Krimzon Guards (for example, Haven City). Steal a zoomer from anyone. Accelerate (press X) at a Krimzon Guard, and when it is about to hit him, get off (press Triangle). Keep on doing this about four to five times to get ammo. Also, to refill your ammo at any time during a game, go to Haven City and go to the Gun Course. It is in the Port; look for a Zoomer parked outside a door. Go inside to the first room where there are several Krimzon Guard Crates. Smash them to find an assortment of ammo. You rarely (if at all) will find Peace Maker ammo. If you do not max out your ammo in one shot. Go outside, go to the Hip Hog Saloon, return to the Gun Course, and the Krimzon Guard Crates should have regenerated.

Save Ridepod Fuel

To save Ridepod fuel on levels with Ridepod Only medals, run around the levels as Max. When you see an enemy, press L3 to defeat it, then press L3 again to return to Max and not waste fuel.

Defeating The Baron

When fighting the Baron for the first time, he will be in a shielded ship attacking you. At first he will fire in straight lines at you. Dodge these. After three shots, his shield will break. Shoot him with your Blaster. Repeat until one third of his health is gone, then get out of the way as he charges to the next area. Follow him and reload with the ammo in nearby crates. This time he will fire missiles at you, which follow where you run. Keep running to avoid these. After two missile attacks, fire at him. Repeat until another one third of his health is gone. Then, follow him to the last area. His shield is now gone; fire when you can. He will send fiery tornadoes at you. Shoot him until he runs away. When fighting the Baron in Mar's Tomb, pull out the Scatter gun and shoot the mech spiders that he sends at you. When all of them are gone, he will fire bombs at you. Knock them back at him with a spin attack. Aim carefully to hit him. Four bombs will take one third of his health away. He will send more spiders at you. Hide behind the pillars to avoid being shot by the Baron. Knock four more bombs his way. He will get the Precursor Stone. Again, stay behind the pillars to avoid him. He will take out sections of the walkway and shoot only two bombs. If you can turn into Dark Jak, do so and use a Dark Bomb to finish him. Otherwise, knock the bombs into him. However aiming will be much harder now; act fast and the battle will be yours. Note: When you defeat Baron Praxis (in the Tomb of Mar) and leave Mar's tomb, you will start to see yellow Krimson Guards. The only difference is that they take more hits to kill.

Krimson Guard Revenge

After you defeat Krew, go back to his place. Win the Wack the Metal Head game. Metal Heads will be loose, and the Krimson Guards will be chasing only them. You can now kill the Krimson Guards without them going after you.

Avoid Krimson Guards By Stealth

When on foot in the city and being chased by guards, get out of sight and press the Left Analog-stick towards a wall. You will get stealthy until the panic is over.

Shortcut In Torn Mission 2

On the second long jump, when you are on top of the sewage thing, jump to the left. If you keep going straight once you hit land, there will be stairs taking you to a new part of the mission. Go up the stairs. This skips about one half of the mission.

Lurker Shark On Plaque In Hip Hog Heaven

Go to Hip Hog Heaven (the bar place) and look on some of the plaques. There will be a Lurker Shark on one of them.

Baron Praxis Comments

After you complete the game, go to a radio structure where announcements are said. If you wait, you will hear Baron say things like " Victory is ours!" and "It's hard ruling a city, you know."

Ratchet And Clank: Going Commando Reference

In Haven City, go to the giant garden that has giant flowers and a water cannon shooting water on them. It is near the entrance of Haven Forest and the Mountain. From here, go to the City (not to the stadium area that is nearby). Go past few small bridges, then you should face a big building. On its wall, you should see a picture of Ratchet and Clank (the main characters of Insomniac games' Ratchet and Clank). Ratchet is wearing his green commando suit from in Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando.

Destroy Produce Stands

Notice the produce stands scattered about the area of Haven City where Onin is located. You can wreck them. Punch, spin, shoot, or hover over the boxes and vases. They will break and the produce will scatter everywhere.

Winning The Second Race

The jet bike will jump if you press L1. When the race starts hold back a little and collect the left side boost icon left by the pack. Use a Jump and Boost combo to clear the cannon and cut out a hard U-turn. You will see light across the cannon where you jump. This should have you in front of the pack. Remain there by taking this shortcut in all five laps.

Winning The Class 1 Race

When you get on your race car, there will be an intermission sequence that shows Erol pulling in next to you, and Baron Praxis will announce if someone manages to the grand champion they will get a year supply of Eco and a ticket to get in his palace. When you start the race, there will be a short cut at the beginning on the right-hand side. Try to keep your first place lead. Near the finish line there will be a very brief shortcut tat puts you somewhat farther ahead. Repeat this three times and use the shortcuts to win the Class 1 race.

Faster Time In Stadium Mission

When the mission where Jak has to race across the city to the stadium becomes available, complete all other missions until it is the only mission remaining. You can now receive a faster time by going from Krew's place north into the square and through the area with the water. Follow the map to reach the stadium in time with ease.

Hover On Water And Dark Eco With JetBoard

When keep the JetBoard, you can use it to hover on water and Dark Eco. This can be very useful when you want to go faster on water if you do not have a Zoomer, or if you have to cross some Dark Eco lakes.

Swim Faster

To make Jak swim faster, keep tapping the Analog-stick in the direction you want to go.

Avoid Guards By Stealth

When on foot in the city and being chased by guards, get out of sight and press the Left Analog-stick towards a wall. You will get stealthy until the panic is over.

Blender

Go to an area where there are no Krimzon Guards (such as the mountain area). Waste the ammunition for all your guns. Pull out the Vulcan Fury again by pressing Left, then hold R1. The Vulcan Fury will rotate, but since it has no ammo, nothing will fire. Instead, you will hear only the mechanics of the gun, which sound similar to a blender.

Big Jumps

Instead of holding L1 then pressing X to do a big jump, press X(2), Circle, jump twice, then spin kick.

Spinning Rapidfire Blaster Combo

When you have the Blaster rifle and have it equipped, jump (X) then when in the air, spin (Circle) and fire (R1) while spinning in the air. Jak will start shooting rapidly while spinning. Use this to easily kill a group of enemies when surrounded.

Blaster Combo

When you have the Blaster rifle and have it equipped, use the punch attack (Square) on an enemy, then quickly shoot (R1). Jak will knock the enemy in the air and finish it with a strong rapid fire.

Defeating Metal Head Leader

Begin by taking out your blaster and kill all the enemies. Then, shoot him repeatedly until more Metal Heads appear. Repeat this as many times as needed until he gets in the red. When he gets in the red, he will jump off the string things and will be on the ground. Avoid him until he shoots three lasers at you. He should now be on the other side of you. Take out the Peace Maker and shoot him. Repeat this as many times needed to defeat the Metal Head leader and complete the game. When the battle starts, take out your Vulcan gun and fire at the Leader until he charges a shot. Get out of the way. Switch to your Blaster and run around the area, firing at the Leader occasionally. Take out the bugs if they get too close; otherwise stay away from them. When you get to phase two (one third of his health is gone), continue firing at him until the flying Metal Heads approach you. If you have enough Eco, turn into Dark Jak. Take some of the lesser enemies then do a Dark Blast close to the Leader (takes about half a health bar). Repeat the earlier process until the Leader starts running around. Continue running until his blasts are coming from the side instead of behind. Turn and blast him. Repeat to win.

Defeating Krew

When you first start, kill all of the "clones" of Krew (they only do 1 damage). First, go around in a circle about three times then turn around and shoot them. If they get too close, keep going around. After you kill all the clones, Krew he will come after you on his flying chair and try to shoot you. Take out your Peace Maker and charge a shot up. When he comes around, shoot him a couple of times with the Peace Maker. He will go off in the distance. Repeat this as many times as needed to defeat Krew. Note: After you shoot Krew with the Peace Maker, get ammo out of the boxes.

Infinite Skullgems

After you have collected 200 Precursor Orbs, you can start a new game in hero mode. In Hero Mode, you can get unlimited Skullgems from Metal Heads. Kill the Metal Heads, take their Skullgems, and after you die or exit, re-enter the level and meet the same Metal Heads again. They will give you another Skullges. You can easily collect all the Skullgems needed to give to the Oracle for the new Dark Jak skills. Then, kill yourself and repeat.

Bounce Head

In the game Jak 2 you discover the new soldiers known as the krimzon guards. If you run up to one (either red or yellow) and jump on there head they will swing your gun or shocker thing at you. I'm not sure if this will work in Jak 3 though.

Map

There is a very useful map on the back of the back Jak 2 cover. There are no more maps on any of the games, just to save you the trouble.

Swim Anywhere You Want In The Pumping Station

You can get rid of that annoying robot that kills you instantly by turning into Dark Jak and executing Dark Bomb in the water while the robot is in view. If done correctly your screen should shake a little and the robot should disappear.

Destroy The Metalhead Leader

First when Metalhead Kor drops his Scorpion eggs try to focus on killing them not Kor and keep an eye out for Kor's attacks. When his head starts shinning get ready for an attack. When theres not any eggs or metalheads around then shoot kor. Keep another eye out for kor's machine flying metalheads. other than that keep shooting Kor.

Protect Stadium

When you are at the Stadium, when the two Green sages are using there green eco powers preparing the time machine over to the balloon lift, you must protect them and their health meaters are displayed at the upper left corner. You have to make sure that their health doesnt run out, so.. You also must kill Metal heads to defend the two sages. When you are defending them its a good idea to use your DARK eco powers or use the dark eco power bomb, to use that ((( x ,then, sqaure))). or use your Vulcan Furry gun, also it's a better idea to use your Blaster gun and theres a good move to use with the blaster gun ((( x, circle, R1))). {{hope you like my help}}

Protect Haven City From Metal Head Invasion

In one level, you must protect Haven City from an onslaught of Metal Heads that come via air ship. Make sure that you are able to become dark Jak at short notice. The onslaught will come in fast, so get out your best gun. At the time I think it's the Vulcan. Fight them off for a short amount of time, then turn to Dark Jak. Use the Massive explosion to finish them off quickly.

Giant Dark Jak

Get 100 Metal Head orbs for the fourth time and you will get the ability to becom huge. All your dark powers have better rang and power and you are 5 times faster then you normal stat.

Dark Invincibility

Get 200 Metal Head orbs for the third time and you will get Dark Invincibility. This only works when you are in dark mode.

Escape Metal Heads At Dead Town

When Torn tells you to go to Dead Town in order to take out all the Metal Heads, you will have to do that like he says. But once you have found Somos' hut, more of them will flud in and attack you. Use the spread gun to kill the onslaught of the smaller, and more obnocious little digging Metal Heads. Then a group of regular ones will turn the corner and attack you. Use the second gun that Krew gave you on them. Once you have killed them all, look over the ledge and you will see the land very close to the escape. Jump down. It will take a little life away, but it's worth it.

Easy Orbs

After you have gotten the hoverboard go to any place that has water or the mud zaping stuff or dark eco. You can hover over it.

Wild Fire

Heres a really cool move, switch to any of your guns. Then start kicking then shoot.

How To Transform Into Dark Jak

To transform into the tougher, more powerful Dark Jak, you must first collect tons of dark eco. You this by destroying many metal heads and other creatures. (If you kill a person, purple stuff comes out of them but you won't get any eco.) Once you get enough eco, the picture of Jak in the health meter will turn into Dark Jak. Hold L2 to activate Dark Jak. Dark Jak is strong enough to kick away vehicles and if you collect metal head gems, you can go to an oracle to increase Dark Jak's powers.

Hero Mode Extras

When you get in Hero Mode you will start out with all the weapons and you enemies will be a lot stronger. Hero Mode will also has different secrets.

Ride Elevator To Palace

In the mission: Ride Elevator to Palace, you will come across a place where there are electric blade like things to dodge. After you have passed them, you will find a bunch of tiles that have sparks coming out of them. It is nearky impossible to get across these. Look down to the left. There are some stairs. Go down them, there will be some poles to swing on and that will get you past those.

Continues Punches

This hint is used to defeat enemys faster. First you need to be in Dark Jak form. Then, just keep pressing the square button. In no time, all your enemies will be gone. This is very useful if you're in a hurry.

Massive Explosion

This only works when you are in "Dark Jak" mode. When you are in this mode, press X to jump and hit square while you are in the air. This will make Jak come down head first into the ground, causing a massive explosion destroying everything around him. This works really well when you have a lot of metal-heads or any other creatures attacking you.
