There is also an additional weapon and armor to be had with this:

1. Hacker Suit - Found in Chapter 3 Conduit Room. +15% Armor + 15 Inventory Slots
2. Hacker Contact Beam - Found in Chapter 9 Conduit Room. Reload Speed -0.1 sec, Alt Dmg +5%


[top]Roadmap

First path - At your first story choice pick "Lighting Failure" and for your second choice pick "Direct Route." During this path you will pick up Trace Element , Stormed the Core, Laser Burn, Dirty Work, and Did anyone survive?

Second path - From the main menu, choose "leaderboards" and select "Ignition." At your first story choice pick "Lighting Failure" again, and at your second choice pick "Cross the Rim." During this path you can try for Ain't got time to bleed, But don't worry if you don't get it. After completion you will receive Catch me if you can!

Third path - At your first story choice pick "Hostage Situation" and for your second choice pick "Space Walk." Now on this play through you have done the intro hacks twice and you have done the final hacks to open the holding cell twice. You should be familiar with them and can attempt Ain't got time to bleed!, with confidence. Focus on working through your hacks without failing. You can fail once or twice and still make it but if you keep failing a hack might as well try for it on your final path.

Fourth path - This is your final path, At the first story choice pick "Hostage Situation" and at your second choice pick "Interior Route." During the set of hack you have to complete before reaching the holding cell for the final movie. You will be awarded Infectious, Planet Cracker, All Your Trace are Belong to us, and Chief Engineer. Also if you missed Ain't got time to bleed you can attempt it again on this path.


[top]Trophies

[top]
Chief Engineer
Complete all hacks in any single player mode

You will need to complete all four of the available story paths in single player. On your final path while completing the hacks just before reaching the holding cell. You will get this trophy shortly after receiving All of your Trace are Belong to us, Planet Cracker, and Infectious.

[top]
Catch me if you can!
Complete one Ignition mode path through the Leaderboards

On your 2nd, 3rd, or 4th path select Leaderboards from the main menu. And play through ignition mode to unlock this trophy. Make sure you choose a path that you have not previously played, as you can do this while working towards Chief Engineer.

[top]
Did anyone survive?
Complete Ignition mode

This trophy is story related and can not be missed. After you have completed your first path, you will be awarded this trophy when your character unlocks a holding cell in the final cut scene. Remember which path you have taken, so you do not repeat it in your next three paths.

[top]
Dirty Work
Unlock the level 4 engineering RIG

This trophy is story related and can not be missed. Near the end of your first path you will be awarded the level 4 RIG. Each level giving you more tools for you to use in each hack mini-game. Also note after your first path your level 4 RIG is available from the start of each additional paths you play. Making paths 2, 3, and 4 less brain racking than the first.

Stop the clock!
Successfully complete any hack on the Leaderboards

Select Leaderboards from the main menu. Choose either Tracer Route, System Override, or Hardware Crack. Then you can press left or right and choose an individual chapters hack. Select any hack and after completion you will awarded your trophy.

Ain't got time to bleed!
Successfully complete Ignition mode with 25 minutes by any route (excluding movies)

This trophy should not be attempted until after your first path. On your additional paths your level 4 RIG is available from the start making the hardware cracks much easier. The timer includes time playing the hack mini games and does not include the time spent watching the cut scenes. I finished with a time of 22 minutes and i failed a trace route hack twice, so there is some room for error.

If you have finished your 4 story paths and do not have this trophy i would recommend playing one path over and over until you get it. This way all of the hacks will be the same, and will be easier to remember the solutions to the hardware cracks which I personally found the hardest of the three mini games.



Hardware Crack Tips: Above is the Tips and Strategies spoiler which are hand drawn solutions to all Hardware Cracks. I have been searching for a Video of the Hardware Cracks without the Level 4 RIG. I will update this when i find either a video or better pics.


Tracer Route Tips: When playing the Tracer Route mini games keep an eye on you progress bar at the top of you screen. It will tell you how far ahead of behind the enemy AI is, and how far you are to the end of the level. Only use your firewalls when you are going through a narrow tunnel and the enemy tracers have no choice but to hit them. Using your speed boosts at the start of the level is useless as the enemy AI "rubberband" back at you before you know it. So only use your boosts if you get stuck in a wall or are near the end of the level to blow past the competition.


System Overide Tips: System Override plays like a tower defense game only you are the one invading. Nothing to difficult about it especially with your Level 4 RIG. When it starts take a moment and decide which path is shorter. You can switch which direction your attacks enter by pressing . You may also take out some of the defenses holding , using this will immediately destroy whatever you have your red cursor over and the surrounding defenses, you can use this twice with the Level 4 RIG. Now the easiest thing to do is just alternate sending in 4-5 attacks with , followed by 4-5 . Sending in attacks will drain a bar on the right side of the screen, when it reaches the bottom you are no longer to able to send in attacks, so take a few seconds let it fill back up and then send in another wave of attacks There is a time limit so keep an eye on the blue bar that is slowing disappearing.
