|Midair Body Hop||98%|
| Description: This sometimes works, and only in certain conditions.|
How to: Pick up any random flat item -- although dead bodies sometimes work -- jump into the air with the object in hand.
At the azimuth of the jump, toss the object downwards and sometimes your character will stop as if he stood on the ground (but in the middle of the air); if you jump again, your guy will start a jump from that spot in the air. It might prove helpful for some higher areas when your jump isn't high enough yet (due to lack of agility orbs or leveling).
|Token Collecting 101||98%|
| You need Commitment|
There are no achievements for getting part of the agility orbs or 400 or even 499. It's all or nothing. So before you start doing a hard search, decide if you really want all 500. Because when it gets down to about 20 left, it becomes very difficult and a bit tedious. If it doesn't matter that much to you, do not bother. You have to be persistent to find the final dozen. Good luck!
Order of Density
The agility orbs are scattered among the 3 islands that make up Paradise City. Los Muertos has the most with at least 200 of the 500 orbs to be found. The Volk is 2nd, with Shai-Gen last. Don't rush to the other 2 islands, even after clearing Los Muertos. Stay and run across the rooftops and in the streets (it is often easier to spot orbs looking up than from rooftops in Los Muertos territory). Keep searching!
Agility Orbs are easy to see
Unlike the hidden orbs, agility orbs are almost always in plain sight. Some are on top of rocks near the water (which make them harder to see), but all 495 can be found in the open. Often orbs are missed because you aren't looking up and down each side of every building. So look around a lot.
Complete all Rooftop Races
The races take you past a lot of orbs, so do all 14 races to help in collecting.
When you see an orb, get it If in a rooftop race or fighting a boss and you see an orb and said, "gotta remember that one." Don't make this mistake. It's easier to divert yourself and get every orb you see when you see it. Don't wait until later, because the city is so big and there are so many orbs, you are bound to forget where you saw one orb in the middle of doing something else.
We recommend fully exploring the rooftops while taking on the 3 gangs. By the time you finish off the last boss, you should have around 400 orbs (and 4 stars in your agility skill). Now comes the hard part: start with the 3rd island and break it into sections. Get to a decent height and use the sniper rifle to scan each side of each building. Yes, it is slow going, but it is way too easy to miss one or 2 orbs. Usually you will find that when you discover one orb, there are 2 or 3 more nearby, because you just never came to that specific spot.
|Like Fish In A Barrel||96%|
| Max out your explosives and firearms abilities easy!!|
On Volk Island, there is a barge. this is the the floating structure that is closest to you as you look at the final boss' house from the closest Supply Point. First kill all the enemies that are around on the barge. As you walk from the front to the back of the barge, there is a door to your left under the crossbar. Enemies will spawn inside the room and emerege to fight you. Here is the trick:
As you pass the door walking all the way past it, the 1st wave will start so just kill them. Stand there and face the door. When the next wave of enemies emerges inside the room, red dots will show up on the HUD. When the door opens again, shoot a hothead round or lob a grenade in there and they will all die. After a couple waves, the bodies pile up and keep the door open, letting you throw grenades in as soon as you see them spawn inside the room.
This will continue for about 10 or so waves of enemies, and then they just stop. Go back to the supply point and reload, then go back and do it all over again and again. You can max out your explosives and firearms abilities using this method in a relatively short amount of time. If you have the patience, you probably could do the same with the strength ability. This also can get you the mad bomber achievment.
The trick outlined here can essentially be done at any location where the gangs spawn and respawn in a fixed location (such as a small room or an elevator). By utilizing this trick throughout the game, you can achieve maximum stats on firearms, explosives and strength easily when you need to.

Order of Density : The agility orbs are not evenly distributed among the 3 islands that make up Paradise City. Los Muertos has the bulk, with at least 200 of the 500 orbs. The Volk is second, with Shai-Gen well behind. Don't rush to the other 2 islands, even after clearing Los Muertos. Stay, run across the rooftops and in the streets (it is often easier to spot orbs looking up than from rooftops in Los Muertos territory). Keep searching. When I got down to just 15 orbs, I was surprised to discover 10 more lying around on the 1st island.
Agility Orbs are easy to see : Unlike the hidden orbs, agility orbs are almost always in plain sight. Some are on top of rocks near the water (which make them tougher to see), but all 495 I have found so far are in the open. Often orbs are missed because you aren't looking up and down each side of every building.
Complete all Rooftop Races : The races take you past a lot of orbs, so do all 14 races to help easy collecting.
When you see an orb, get it : Quite a few times I was in a rooftop race or fighting a boss and I saw an orb and said, "gotta remember that one." Don't make this mistake. It's easier to divert yourself and get every orb you see. Don't wait until later, because the city is so big and there are so many orbs, you are bound to forget where you saw one orb in the middle of doing something else.
Be Methodical : I recommend fully exploring the rooftops while taking on the 3 gangs. By the time you finish off the last boss, you should have around 400 orbs (and 4 stars in your agility skill). Now comes the hard part: start with the 3rd island and break it into sections. Get to a decent height and use the sniper rifle to scan each side of each building. Yes, it is slow going, but it is way too easy to miss one or 2 orbs. Usually you will find that when you discover one orb, there are 2 or 3 more nearby, because you just never came to that specific spot.
Commit or Quit Early : There are no achievements for getting half the agility orbs or 400 or even 499. It's all or nothing. So before you start doing a hard search, decide if you really want all 500. Because when it gets down to about 20 left, it becomes very difficult and a bit tedious. If it doesn't matter that much to you, do not bother. You have to be persistent to find the final dozen.
|Jump High Glitch||93%|
| This works once in a while in certaain conditions. Pick up any flat item and jump into the air with the object in hand. Dead bodies sometimes even work.|
At the peak of the jump, toss the object downwards and your character may stop as if he stood on the ground. You can now jump again begining at that point in the air. It might prove helpful for some higher areas when your jump isn't high enough yet. Jump high man!
|Wall-Climbing SUV 101||93%|
| You need 4 stars in your Driving skill first. In the Agency Garage, select the Agency SUV and head out to a building/wall with a flat surface. If its a building, make sure there are no ledges in your path up.|
Now, get the SUV perpendicular to the wall you are going up. You must have your front bumper toward the wall/building.
After that, hit the gas. Your SUV's front tires should start creeping up the wall. Once they are firmly grasping the surface of the wall and your rear tires are about to do the same press down and hold the RED button to use your 4 star vehicle's special ability.
This ability pulls down your SUV's suspension, essentially hugging the wall you are riding up. Do not let go of the RED button unless you want to launch yourself off the wall.
Congratulation!! iI you have followed the steps listed above you are now a wall climbing monster.
Now, if you hold the RED button down long enough while driving the 4 star Agency SUV you will notice the sound it makes. You can only hold the suspension down for so long before the effect times out and returns the SUV to normal. Take note of the sound your SUV makes as the suspension effect times out.
By taking advantage of this while driving up walls you will be thrilled with the heights you can reach. Practice while you are driving on the ground so you can get the timing down and the sounds. If you are hopping in your SUV then you are pressing the RED button again too soon.
This skill isn't ver practical but mastering it will let you go straight up Wang Tower : bypassing his elite guards. Enjoy!
|Easy Driving Experience||91%|
| Description: gain experience while driving around.|
How to: By running over guys, experience and money can be easily found. But guys keep hopping out of the way! So how do you run them over ? Get in an Agency Rig and get momentum up (to about 100mph). Ram all oncoming and stationary gang cars (the latter must have actual gang members in them), and collect the purple experience. Good luck!
|Kill smart guy inside bulletproof building||83%|
|In the mission where you need to kill a guy that is inside a building that has bulletproof windows,here is a way to kill him.First get to the top of the building and find some machines/consoles that are on top of it,now destroy all of them and there will be a malfunction inside the building.You will notice that the crazy fool will get out of the building,try to escape,and tell the kingpin about what you did,but don't hesitate because you will see him and that will be your chance to kill him.So either kick him for a fast kill,or shoot him with the Heavy machine gun for a nice kill that will give you some points.|
|How to get best sniper rifle at the beginning of the game!||82%|
| One way to get this sniper rifle is to kill some Shai-Gen snipers,but this is suicide if you are at a low level.|
Here is a way to get this weapon without fighting.
When you start,go to the orange beam in the Agency garage.(or look for another way to the surface of the agency island.)
Go to the edge of the island.
Look around for a Peacekeeper holding a sniper rifle.
Kill him and pick up the weapon.(shoot or knock him away from the water.if you don't you will lose the rifle.)
Either jump into the water or run to the agency supply point in the garage.
(Its best you chose the supply point incase you get killed by Peacekeepers.)
This rifle kills all enemies and civillians in one shot.
Mutants will need two shots.
This weapon has 1 bullet per clip.And theres only 5 clips.
USE IT WISELY!
| Mutants are failed experiments for Shai-Gen's 'Super Solider' operation.Once you kill the doctor running the operation,mutants roam the Shai-Gen territory.|
Tips on fighting/killing mutants:
1)Don't let them knock you down.If you do,then they will keep coming at you and knock you back.
2)Use the enviroment.Plant lipid explosives on objects the mutants can pick(cars,dumpsters,etc.)
3)Don't be afraid to get close to use the "Shotgun Combo" on them.
(Shotgun Combo is hit with butt of shotgun then a shot to the face or body.)
4)When fighting,use the two shotguns.
5)If you are using any other weapon beside the rockets or shotguns,shoot the mutants in the leg and then plant a bullet in the brain.
6)Give them a taste of their own medicine!Throw some objects at them too.
7)Take cover.The mutants can't get over low walls.If you can't walk over a wall,then they can't.
8)SETUP A CAMP!Use any of the tips above and make a camp.Believe me,it will be a long night in Pacific City.
Remember,it is suggested that you max out your explosives skill before you use any explosives to take out mutants.
|Slow Motion Glitch||75%|
|If you want to make the game go slow mo, get a small, fast car and get the limpet charges. Then throw 8 all over the car. Then, drive off a realy high place and as soon as you take off detonate the charges and your car should spin round so fast the game goes in slow motion until you hit the ground.(Note: it doesnt always work so you may have to try a few times)|
|Best weapon combanation||69%|
| Harlington HMG|
Any rocket launcher
|Get to the tallest building in the game (I think it is the agentcy tower)and jump off of it.(but your jumping ability has to be at MAX to get this acheivement)Make sure that you are at the tip of the building (in other words the top)And jump off and make sure you land in the water.Now you have another acheivement.|
|Nearly every kingpin is near a supply point.For example, Rafael Diaz is near Garcia Point[no.3].|
|Cheat to remind you of something 2||60%|
|If you are trying to kill a leader,general,or kingpin that happens to be inside a building that's ceiling(s) are very low (in other words it's a small type of room)don't Jump at all,don't use the rocket launcher if there is a wall or something in your way,and don't use grenades cause you will instead end up hurting and even killing yourself instead of the leader,general,or kingpin.|
|How to get a rocket launcher||60%|
| U go to the keep and get a suv then go down number 2 tunnel.then there will be a few guys kill them then go to the highway and kill 2 badguy trucks. go back there will be 4 or 5 guys there then kill them then he should be on the tallest part of the rock.|
hope this helped you =D
| When your character is good enough,he will be able to lift heavy objects.|
Here is how to use this ability wisely:
Chose any heavy object(big yellow dumpster,dumpster,cars,etc.)
Pick it up,and move closer to your target.
Set object down(B Button)
Hide behind,or sometimes in,this object and you got a portable cover.
Now you need to be able to lift objects just over a ton to use dumpsters and cars.

Comes in VERY VERY handy during those pesky infiltrations into enemy compounds!! (this method can also be used to get a pretty cool machine gun too...)|
