Glitches

The glitches of this game

This game although very fun and exhilarating is not without its fair share of glitches heres a few i ran into The Neverending Railsparks Sometimes when i jumped of a rail and still held the momentum it made the animation for the sparks still go its not that bad a glitch but its still a glitch. The Crushing train: in the sidequest with the Hobo at a certain spot near the intersection it made stuck and unable to move literally it made it so i couldnt move at all and the only way i could get out was with fast travelling so i had to restart the mission. The Screeches of the Dammed: In the quest getting the band back together when your rescuimg wendy after you finish the quest you may still have a grinding noise playing through cutscene making you missout on any dialogue or context which may help you the worse thing is it made it so i couldnt hear the gun sound effects or hear the voices of the characters

 

Hints

Infinite Money and Overcharge

You can build infinite money and Overcharge during Act 1-9: "Max's Parents." Once the room at the top of the tower explodes, gather up all of the money and Overcharge from around you and then let the enemies defeat you. You'll respawn at the top of the tower, with the money and Overcharge there again. Gather it all, and then cross the river to get the enemies there to kill you. The money and Overcharge will respawn when you do. Repeat this process as long as you want, although keep in mind that if the enemies on the tower side of the river kill you, the money and Overcharge won't respawn.

  1

Flung to Safety Achievement

To easily get the "Flung to Safety" achievement, you must start a Night Defense mission. Put a trap in a narrow point on the map, and then position a Fling Board nearby so that a dotted line connects them. This means it will toss enemies into the trap. Continue to do this during Night Defense missions until you kill 100 enemies this way. The count is cumulative across multiple missions.

 

The Floor is Lava Achievement

To easily get the "The Floor is Lava" achievement, just find two objects you can bounce from in close proximity to one another, and bounce between them until your combo hits 100.

 

Increasing Combo Meter

Use the following traversal maneuvers to increase your combo meter.

  • Air Dash - During a jump, press RB. This move is unlocked as you play the game.
  • Bounce - Either fall or jump onto certain objects, such as a boat, a car, a tarp, a vent, or a skylight.
  • Super Bounce - As you bounce, press A just as you hit the object you're bouncing from. This move is unlocked as you play the game.
  • Grind/Undergrind - Press RB while you're alongside certain surfaces, such as a rail, a pipe, a power line, or a ledge.
  • Handspring - Perform a Dodge Roll by pressing X along with the left analog stick, and then press A to handspring out of the roll.
  • Pole Swing - Press X when you're horizontal from a pole or bar.
  • Slam Bounce - After a dive bomb attack, press A as you land. This move is unlocked as you play the game.
  • Vault - Press A when you fall past a ledge you can grab onto.
  • Wall Jump - Jump against a wall, and then press A and point the left analog stick in the direction opposite the wall.
  • Wall Run - Run toward a straight, long wall at a tight angle and press X.
  • Wall Corner - If you reach a corner during a wall run, press X.
  • Water Dash - Press X right before you land on the water. This move is unlocked as you play the game.

 

Level Up Weapons Easily

You can easily level up your weapons during the mission "Getting the Band Back Together." Proceed through the mission until you reach the part where you're supposed to bounce on 10 drums. After you hit 10, continue to bounce on the drums and fight the OD, especially with weapons that take out many enemies at once. Pick up the ammo defeated OD drop so you don't run out. They will spawn infinitely, so keep bouncing until you get a kill streak of 999 and the resulting weapon upgrade badges.
