- Press Up to get a quick view of nearby orbs on the mini-map. You can repeat this after a few seconds.
- Use the following trick to find all the non-renegade orbs faster. Press Start during game play, then quickly press B, Up and look at your mini-map. It will be zoomed out, and it will also make the orb ping (Up) work in a much greater range. It will show you more orbs around you, and in a bigger area, which will in turn allow you to find the orbs faster as long as they are not renegade orbs.

- With an Agility 4 or greater, get a helicopter from the Agency tower and fly it as high as possible. Click and hold the Left Analog-stick to activate its jets to force the mini-map to zoom out as it moves faster. Tap Up to begin scanning for orbs.
Easy Vehicle Stunt Rings
Have two players in an online Co-Op match. Have one player in a helicopter from the Agency Tower and the other player in an Agency Supercar or Cruiser. Have both players meet at the Stunt Ring. Equip the Mag Grenades and attach one to the bottom of the helicopter and another one to the roof of the car. Have helicopter fly the car through a stunt ring. Avoid the explosion from the Mag Grenades and repeat as many times as desired.
Easy Agility Orbs
- Fly a helicopter from the Agency Tower high above the Agility Orb. Note: Jump out and drop down onto the Orb. Note: You must be at a low enough altitude to survive or have the Glide suit. The Orb will not start moving until you are very close to it.
- Use the following trick to easily get level 5 agility orbs (on top of buildings), even when you are level 1. Have a high agility level friend in multi-player mode climb to the near top of a high building with a level 5 Agility Orb on it. At the edge of the building, have him throw a magnetic lock (Mag) to where it is still on the vertical side of the building. Then, have your friend jump (glide if necessary) down and wait for you to climb on top of a nearby car. Then have your friend throw the other Mag on top of the same car. The car should be pulled up to the top of the building, so you can get the Orbs.
Spawn at the Agency tower. Note: It is recommended that you get your Agent's agility up to level 5 so you can have the Wingsuit. Once you spawn, move to the right and look for a large cylindrical pipe directly in front of the Agency Holding Pens building. It will be very tall, and is the only one that has an opening at the top. Jump down, but be careful; it is a very long drop. Use the Wingsuit's glide ability to slow your descent. You should find yourself in a small cave, in which there is a very large toilet with rubber duckies and beach balls.
- Use the following trick to find a helicopter with weapons. Spawn at the Agency island. Look at the gate to the bridge. Climb up the building to the right of the bridge. Look straight ahead after climbing to see a landing pad with four helicopters on it. Note: Level 5 Agility is required to reach them. Note: The helicopter closer to the Agency tower, and across from that, has missiles. The other two have machine guns.
, , and
- Use the following trick to find a helicopter with guns. Spawn on the island northeast of the Agency island. Once in the middle of it, climb the highest tower there. When you reach the middle level (with the free standing balconies), you will find a helicopter with no guns.
- Use the following trick to find Quacker grenades (exploding rubber sticky ducks). Go to the carnival located on the island southwest of the Agency tower on the southern tip of the island. Look for the Chucks Ducks 2 booth after you clear out the cell stronghold there. Inside the booth are Quacker grenades behind the counter.
- Alternately, have a Facebook account that has been previously logged into from your Xbox 360. Then log onto Facebook on a computer and play the "Chuck's Ducks 2" mini-game. Earn twenty ducks in puzzle mode, then save them from the hunters in the second part of the mini-game. If done correctly, the mini-game will notify you that you have ducks waiting for you in Crackdown 2. Begin game play in Crackdown 2 and spawn near the Carnival in Green Bay South. You can now exchange a grenade for a Quacker grenade at the Chuck's Ducks 2 booth in the center of the carnival. Take that grenade back to any drop zone to have the option to select the Quacker grenades whenever you spawn.
Mounted turret reload
To reload a mounted turret that you took from its stationary post (requires level 3 Strength), just find the post and replace the turret. Pick it up again for fresh ammo.
