Welcome to Shai-Gen territory. On your way there, you'll be briefed on Dr. Baltazar Czernenko, the scientist who is responsible for the research that created you! Dun, dun, duuunnn.

Anyway, head on over to the Shai-Gen island and start by collecting Agility Orbs (if you haven't done a good job of collecting orbs prior to this, then you should collect orbs on La Mugre and The Volk island as they are easier to reach). Once you're up to three stars, unlock a few Supply Points and get to know the lay of the land a bit.

Before you start any of these missions, I recommend that you have at least 3 stars of Agility and 3 stars of Weapons. It'd also be good to have at least 2 stars of Explosives and 2 stars of Strength. For your information, I got my third Agility upgrade at 139 orbs.

Dr. Baltazar Czernenko



Location: P.C.N. Research Institute, NW area of the island. Czernenko is on the top floor of the circular building.

Since he was the first guy you were briefed on in the this area, why not go ahead and take him out.

Before you start this mission, I recommend you unlock the "Comfortude, LTD." Supply Post, just SE of the P.C.N. Research Facility. This way, if you die, you are close by.

The easiest way to get to him is via the secret tunnel that leads underneath the facility. This, however, requires that you have a 4 star agility, otherwise, you'll get under the facility but won't be able to get up into the facility...very frustrating.

If you do have 4 star Agility, then, to find the secret tunnel, go to the east side of the facility and stand on the road that runs by the facility. Follow the road east until you cross an overpass. The tunnel is under the overpass. So, hop down to the road below and go under the bridge to find the tunnel entrance. Another point of reference is that it is near a purple race marker.

Once you enter the tunnel, follow the path, and go down the stairs. At the bottom you'll be in the basement of the circular building. Jump up and into the area closest to Czernenko, work your way up, and then follow the end of this section on Czernenko to learn how to get to him.

If, like me, you have 3 star Agility going into this battle, then I suggest you swim around to the north side of the facility. From the water you'll see a staircase. Exit the water and go up the staircase (take the left staircase path).

At the top of the stairs, turn right and locate the circle of crates in front of you. There will be a few enemies inside the circle. Move toward it, kill the enemies, and you'll see that the circle of crates is protecting the entrance to the facility.

Once inside, fight your way to the top floor, using the radar to hone in on Czernenko. When you get to the top, you'll see that Czernenko is behind a bullet-proof glass window. No worries. Just place two or three Limpet Charges on the glass, back up, and then detonate them. The glass won't blow up, but it will become slightly askew, allowing you to enter the room where Czernenko is located.

Once in this room, take out the guards and then take out Czernenko however you please...I used rockets.

Note, watch out for the freaks that are in the facility. You won't get any skill for killing them, but it's best to take them out so they don't harm you. Also, I tried to use my kick almost exclusively for the entirety of this mission in order to build up my Strength. It was after kicking down one of Czernenko's guards that I got my 3rd Strength upgrade, and thus, a third health bar.

Note, on your way to Czernenko, if you see any enemies on the roofs firing rockets at you that look like they're homing in on you, they are. And, you want that rocket launcher. It's called the Firefly and it doesn't require any aiming.

Melissa Fang-Yin



Location: The Knowledge Bank, the facility at the south of the island with the large glass dome. She's at the top of the glass dome.

Fang-Yin is actually very easy to get to. Start at the Intellicenter Supply Post (just north of the Knowledge Bank). From here, face south and jump to the top of the building you are on. You'll be able to see the glass dome. Take out any enemies you see and then jump your way toward the glass dome. Land just outside the glass dome and take out any guards in the area.

Take out the guards inside the glass dome and work your way up to the top where you'll find Fang-Yin. I chose to take her out with a machine gun to help my Weapons skill. Use whatever you like.

Again, if you see any enemies using a Firefly rocket launcher on you, kill that enemy and grab the Firefly. It's a great weapon.

Mrs. Timbol



Location: Human Reality, Inc., west side of southernmost section of island.

I recommend that you equip yourself with a rocket launcher and your favorite machine gun.

If you start at the Intellicenter Supply Post, you can jump west, from building to building, until you get into Mrs. Timbol's vicinity. Along the way, kill any enemies. While you're up here, it is a great opportunity to collect some very valuable Agility Orbs.

From the top of any building in the area of, you can look down on the Human Reality complex. Note the rectangle glass structure in the middle of the complex. Mrs. Timbol is inside of it.

I recommend that you situate yourself on a building to the south of the glass structure.

From your perch overlooking the glass building take out any enemies that you see on the walkways. When it's relatively clear, jump to the walkway near the glass structure. Before you actually enter the structure, equip your rocket launcher, and fire several rockets into the doorway of the glass structure. This should take out the three or four guards who are rushing out to attack you.

With them eliminated, it'll be just you and Mrs. Timbol in a glass dome no-holds-barred match...oh yeah! (imagine a Macho Man Randy Savage impersonation). Enter the glass structure, take cover if your armor is low, and then take her out with your machine gun, as the blast radius from your rocket launcher will be too large and will hurt you.

Colonel Axton Cowell



Location: Central Point, the tall circular skyscraper in the middle of the middle section of island. The skyscraper is clearly labeled "Central Point" on the front.

Before you start this mission, I recommend you unlock the "Stripey's Cafe" Supply Point, ESE of Central Point.

In order to get the briefing, you have to be on the ground in the vicinity of the front of the skyscraper. That's okay, though, as street level is the only way to get in.

From the front of the building, under the "Central Point" lettering, you'll see an entrance to a parking garage. It is well protected. Not to worry though. Just run past the guards to the back of the garage, hang a left and then another left, and go through the open doorway where you'll find a ramp.

Go up the ramp and when you exit, hang a left. You'll soon see the elevator marked with a blue icon on the ground. Step into the icon and press "Y" to activate it. This will cause the doors to open and enemies to come flooding out of the elevator. Again, don't sit there and fight them, instead, run past them and into the elevator. Step onto the blue marker here and hit "Y" to make the elevator go up.

When you get to the top, the elevator doors will open. There are a ton of enemies between you and the Colonel, who is still way up above you. Exit the elevator, shoot anybody who is near you, and run to the right where you'll find a ramp going down. Head down the ramp and you'll see that this is a nice little place to take cover, regroup, and let your shield regenerate.

When you feel ready, go back up and start taking out enemies as you make your way up, up, up the various ramps. When you get to the level where there are no more ramps, head to the east side of the floor where you'll find a balcony. On each side of the balcony are ledges that you can climb. Do so and you'll end up on the roof.

Take out the enemies on the roof as you make your way up the ramps towards the glass dome. Take your time and pick off his guards one at a time...don't just bum rush him or you'll die. When the guards are eliminated, go after the Colonel using whatever you like. Since I was low on ammo, I simply charged him and kicked him to death.

After he's dead, go ahead and pick up his shotgun, the Dempsey 190 'Equalizer', it's a very nice weapon to have in your arsenal if you ever need it. Otherwise, just make your way back down to the elevator and hit "Y" to call the elevator. It may take a few seconds to get up to you. Get in and ride it down.

It's time to head over to Insight Counter Services, the circular compound off of the east side of the island.

Vitaly Rzeznik



Location: Insight Counter Services, the circular compound off of the east side of the island.

Getting to Rzeznik was actually a lot easier than I thought. Hop into the water and swim to the south side of the circular compound. Climb the rocks and you'll end up on the outside of the compound. Locate the open door, a hallway, that leads directly to the interior of the compound.

Once in the interior, hop to the curving ramp in front of you and follow it up. At the top, continue forward, using your rocket launcher on any groups of enemies. As you go forward, keep your eye out on the right for a glass section of wall (glass hallway).

Enter this glass hallway and take the ramp up. At the top, look to the right to see a group of enemies standing in an open doorway. Target the middle one and fire a rocket at him to kill them all.

Enter the room they were guarding and you'll find two staircases leading directly up to Rzeznik. Use your rocket launcher on his guards and then take him out.

Alternatively, to enter the compound, head out to the north bridge leading to the compound. Note that the bridge has four support spans (rafters, if you will) above it. Jump onto the support span closest to the compound. Take out any resistance. From here, jump to the rocks in front of you (the outside wall of the compound). From the rocks, jump up to the balcony above (you'll grab the edge). Pull yourself up onto the balcony.

Head left on the balcony until you see an open hallway. Head down the hallway and you'll emerge in the interior. Hang a right and follow the hall until you see the room on the right where there is a gathering of guards. As mentioned above, take these men out with a rocket, enter the room, and then go up either staircase in that room to find Rzeznik.

Note, if the guards aren't there, just keep an eye out for a room with two staircases in it.

Time to head to the final general, at the P.C.N. Exposition Center on the NE of the island. You may want to hit a Supply Point first.

Thadeous Oakley



Location: The Exposition Center on the NE end of the island.

Swim or run to the back side, NE side, of the Expo Center. Here you'll find stairs leading to a double door that you can either kick down or blow up. Upon entering these doors, you'll be briefed on Oakley.

There's really no trick here, it's just a full on assault. Cross the walkway bridge to the central building, taking out guards as you go. Once inside, hang a left and go almost to the end of the hallway. Here you'll see an open door on the right.

Go through the door and up the red staircase. You will emerge in the fortified dome where Oakley is holed up. There are a bunch of guards here, and, reinforcements will continue to come. It's really quite futile to try to kill them all. Instead, locate the two staircases on opposite ends of this dome. They go down a little and stop at double doors. You can take cover in either of these staircases. Be careful, though, as enemies may come through the doors from the other side.

I recommend holing up in one of the stairwells and then popping out when you see Oakley above. Target him and then fire rocket after rocket at him until he is killed.

Exit out the way you came in and visit a Supply Point. You'll next be taking on the final Kingpin, Wang.

Kingpin - Zuang Lun Wang



Location: The tower. A skyscraper smack in the middle of the island.

I recommend a rocket launcher, your favorite machine gun or shotgun, and some grenades. FYI, at the beginning of this battle I had 3 star Agility, 1 star Driving, 3 star Explosives, 3 star Strength, and 3 star Weapons.

Getting into the skyscraper can be a bit of a pain, however, I found a fairly easy way.

On either side of the building there is a guard booth. These two booths are one level up from the courtyard outside the building (up the staircases, if you will). Each booth has an automatic security door near it. The control box for the security door is on the wall on the other side of the security door. Kill the guards inside either guard booth, and then go to the backside of the guard booth and look through the window, thus facing west. Fire a rocket through the guard booth so that it hits the back wall, which will also destroy the control for the security door.

Whammo! Go around to the security door to find that it is now open!

Go through the security door, up the stairs, through the metal detectors, and run like a banshee up, up, up the stairs. There are plenty of places to take cover if you're hurt, and, don't forget that crouching can also come in handy when trying to find cover.

When you get to a point where there are no more stairs to go up, jump up to the balcony above and go up those stairs until, again, you have no more stairs to go up.

At this point you'll be looking out on many large hanging lights. There are several enemies on the other side of these lights, on the various balconies across from you, so take some time and eliminate them.

Once again, you have to jump up to the next highest balcony, however, to do that, you'll have to jump onto the gray concrete beam, and then up to the balcony. Follow the balcony and the stairs up.

You'll soon get to a circular floor with about ten enemies. Take them out and then locate either of the two staircases going up.

At the top you'll be in a room with huge golden wind chimes. Take out the enemies, including those on the balconies above, and then use the two cut-outs in the easternmost wind chime to jump to the east balcony.

Head up the stairs to the next balcony, take out all of the enemies, and then jump to the top of the wind chime with the hidden orb on it (do this from the east side balcony). From here, jump your way to the next balcony and go up the stairs and you'll find yourself in a room where all of the wind chimes are attached.

Continue forward and then make your way up the various staircases. You will soon end up on the roof of the building, in the garden. You are very close to Wang.

Head to a back corner of the garden and take cover. Take out the guards in the garden (yes, they will continue to stream out, but clear them out as best you can). When it's relatively safe, equip your rocket launcher and look up to the structure above the pagoda. You will be able to see Wang. Target him and fire rocket after rocket at him. After about 5 rockets, he should die.

Congrats! Now all you have to do is the final clean up mission!

Shai-Gen - Final Crime



Location: Near the Intellicenter Supply Point.

Like the Final Crimes before, simply take out enemies in the area of the star icon until you are told that you are done.

After that, the city has been retaken. You get a creepy message which essentially previews a sequel and then you're back to the game. At this point, you can explore the city, earn Skills, do Time Trials, etc.
