Hint: Final area:
First, step into the power chamber in the middle of
the vault of ages. Because there is only a limited amount of time
you have to use the harmonic powers, choose a faster character
to do this. There is a yellow meter that will show you how much
harmonic power time you have remaining. Go straight up or straight
down to reach the generators. The downward path has a small maze
in it. Go right instead of left. At the generator, Apocalypse
is waiting. You must beat him up before you can destroy the generator.
Destroy the generator and repeat the same process with the other
one. It does not have a maze, and it will be a straight shot directly
to it. Just like before, Apocalypse is waiting for you at the
generator. After destroying the power of the harmonic machine,
he will bring statues of the horsemen to life. You must focus
your attacks on the horsemen and get them out of the way before
tackling Apocalypse. When you kill the horsemen, they will return
to statue form. Then, kill Apocalypse twice to complete the game.
Note: Make sure you have a full load of health and energy packs
before attempting this.
Hint: Act 2: Easy items:
In Act 2 after you rescue Beast on Mikhails Warship,
Blink will open a portal back to Avalon. Go through the portal
to Avalon then immediately return to the warship. The scene of
rescuing Beast will play again, and the ship is undamaged. You
can go back and get all the items again. Repeat this as many times
Hint: Act 4: Homing beacon:
In Act 4, in the sewers, you can find the first homing
beacon inside a moving fan. To get it, use Rogue. Walk further
the map until you reach the back side of that fan. Use Power Theft
to drain the energy of that machine. Then come back and you will
see the has fan stopped moving. You can now get that first homing
Hint: Act 4: Easy Holodiscs:
Use the following trick to get Holodiscs easily. In
Act 4 after you talk to Sebastian Shaw, he will ask you to bring
him his Master Key, Holodiscs and pay him 10,000 Techbits. Paying
10,000 Techbits and getting the Master Key is easy. The Holodiscs
are located in one corner of the Westside of the city, but there
is a green laser blocking your way. The best way is to use Nightcrawler's
Teleport skill to pass the laser. Just keep on moving and your
teammates will follow you. Kill the enemies and get the Holodiscs.
Use the skill Teleport to go back on the other side.
Hint: Easy items:
To get easy Techbits, health packs ,energy packs, and
items, return to the top of Apocalypse's tower where you fight
Archangel. Smash all of the containers to get random free items.
Repeat this as many times as desired.
Have Gambit and Toad on your team. Have Gambit use Prince of Thieves,
and Toad use Plunder (this requires at least two extreme points).
Do this when near a weapons cache and you can get about five times
the amount of what you would normally get. This includes health/energy
packs, and Techbits, but you still only get one special item.
Hint: Easy experience:
For easy leveling up, go to the Holding pen level.
There is a location where enemies keep teleporting onto the screen.
It is just before the last area entrance. Note: If you stay too
long without saving, your game will freeze.
Note: You need Magneto with Magnetic Grasp, a lot of energy potions,
and the "Death Touch" cheat. In Act 4, go to the holding
cells. If you came in from the sewer, go up from the sewer entrance
and take a right into the first room. If you came from the stockade,
go up from the stockade entrance, take a left, and go through
the next few rooms. Both ways should lead you into a room with
two spawners and a scanner-like platform. Run through the scanner
and it will "scan you". After this, enemies should start
spawning. Have the player controlling Magneto run onto a spawner
and constantly use Magnetic Grasp. Enemies that spawn on your
spawner will be instantly killed and they will fly from the other
spawner and die as well. If you have the "God Mode"
cheat enabled, this will level you up indefinitely until the level
cap. If you use potions, you will only be able to level up while
Magneto has energy.
Hint: Recommended team:
Having two blasters (for example, Magneto) and two
brawlers (for example, Wolverine) works well. The following team
is highly useful, because there are times where you will need
a mutant with super strength to move an object out of the way.
If you need a bridge formed, use Magneto. If you need a flyer,
both Magneto and Ironman can fill that role. The heavy metal group
is Colossus, Juggernaut, Ironman and Magneto.
Iceman is the most powerful character in the game; keep him in
your team. The other three characters that you should be from
Nightcrawler: He has very fast melee attacks and can do great
damage if you expend lots of Skill Points in the Mutant Power
Attack Teleport Frenzy and all his Passive Skills, Sword Mastery
(you do not need to improve this very much), Teleport Mastery,
Uncanny Reflexes, and Critical Strike. Also, his Xtreme Attack,
Master of Chaos, is the best against Bosses (you can do nine hits
when at maximum level) and PVP (Player VS Player).
Professor X: . He cannot do more damage than Iceman, but is faster
(thanks to the Passive Skill Clairvoyance) and all his skills
are very useful.
Iron Man: He is a combination of all types of characters (good
at melee and ranged attacks, can fly, can smash easily and push
or lift massive objects). Expend Skills Points in his Mutant Attack
Power Gamma Bolts (if the Projectile hits a wall, it comes back),
and all his Passive Skills.
If you have not unlocked Professor X and Iron Man, try these characters:
Bishop: A good choice if you do not have Professor X. He can even
become more powerful than Professor X. He can inflict even more
damage and have Passive Skills that make him fast (Power Trip)
and gives energy damage (Energy Combat). Develop this Mutant Power
Attacks: Full Auto, Bio Beam and Bio Blast. However, Professor
X is better because of his low cost of EP for Mutant Attacks and
walks and melee attacks faster.
Cyclops: If you do not have Iron Man, use Cyclops. He can inflict
much more damage with ranged attack than Iron Man (but can only
hit one or two, while Iron Man can hit five or six) with the Mutant
Power Attacks Fusion Beam and Polarized Beam. Also improve his
Visor Upgrade and Mutant Master as much as possible. However,
Iron Man is better because he can do more damage with melee attacks,
can fly, and lift massive objects.
The perfect team for story mode is Colossus, Sunfire, Gambit,
and Iceman. Colossus is strong and has a powerful attack. This
allows you to avoid using a special attack. Sunfire has fire power,
and you can hit people from far away. Also, he can fly. Gambit
can hit you from far away. He is fast and has strong attacks.
Iceman has ice power. He can hit you from far away, build bridges,
and can fly with his ice slide.
nick r caravna.
The best team is Iron Man, Deadpool, Juggernaught, and Professor
X. Professor X can hit enemies hard and fast. Iron Man can fly
and has a good ranged attack. Deadpool is a good melee brawler.
Juggernaut has the best Xtreme power in the game, Path Of Destruction.
RANDY AUTUMN HAYES.
Use the following characters on your team. Ice Man has strong
attacks, can make bridges, take out fires, and flies. Sunfire
can also fly (but uses less Mutant power), and Fiery Geyser can
blow up any obstacle around you besides a Boss in one or two hits.
It is good to have a mutant with mainly melee attacks, and Wolverine
is a great choice to fill that role. He has great attacks, is
strong enough to pick up objects that others cannot, and can push
obstacles such as poles, columns, and rocks when necessary. The
fourth Mutant is up to you.
Have Professor X, Toad, Iceman, and Juggernaut in your team. Enable
the "Unlimited Xtreme tokens" code or have at least
three Xtreme tokens. If you are mobbed by non-boss enemies, boost
Juggernaut with Toad's Secretion, Iceman's Ice Gloves, Professor
X's Telepathic Link and Juggernaut's Path of Destruction (one
token), then use his Crimson Devastation (one token) to kill all
the enemies. This will do over 300,000 points of damage if at
a high enough level. Then quickly switch to Professor X and use
his Psychic Shock (one token) to resurrect all enemies within
range to become allies temporarily.
You can use Jean Grey, Toad, Iceman, and Juggernaut. You can use
this team for the whole story without changing characters. The
idea is to have Juggernaut as your main character and use other
character's ability to pump him up. Simply concentrate on the
following skills: Jean Grey - Psychic Fury, Iceman - Ice Gloves,
Toad - Secretion, and Juggernaut - Crimson Rage. Assign these
boost skills to your help button (AI Skill). Whenever you engage
in a battle press the button to pump up Juggernaut. This will
give Juggernaut additional damage and makes him move fast. By
using Crimson Rage, Juggernaut will become big in size and can
deal a large amount of damage. Use him as a front man (brawler)
with the three as back-ups. This team is well balanced because
in some stages you must have a flying character (Jean), build
bridges (Jean or Iceman), push heavy objects (Jean or Juggernaut),
have a melee character (Juggernaut or Toad), and a long range
character (Jean or Iceman). You can have Juggernaut do all the
killing because he has a strong defense and high HP. Put skill
points or max out Balance Form for the best fighting speed. Iceman
can slow down enemies and gives addition damage, Use Jean's X-Treme
skill "From The Ashes" if somebody is KOed. Toad's Secretion
can make Juggernaut move faster. Juggernaut can deal about 300,000
or more points of damage by using Crimson Devastation if all their
boost skills are activated with Path of Destruction. You can experiment
with other characters, for example replacing Juggernaut with Wolverine.
Wolverine has a Regeneration ability and Rude Awakening to keep
your characters alive. Use Bishop for Iceman. Both of them can
Boost +47% of damage (maxed out) Sunfire for Jean. Both have the
Flying skill and can boost +47% of damage. Use Professor X for
Jean Grey. Professor X can do more damage than Jean. he has Psychic
Shock that can revive nearby allies and enemies. Use Gambit for
Juggernaut. Gambit can be very fast if you use Secretion with
Energy Form as well as Iron Man (Motion Amplifier). You can try
other characters to fit your fighting style.
The following is a team that is balanced, strong and accurate.
Magneto can fight long-ranged. Also, he is like Jean Gray and
Iceman but does not have any kind of element. If you are not satisfied
to him, try using Rouge. She also does not use any kind of element,
but she is an offensive character. Juggernaut is the most powerful
brawler of the game. As expected he is a slow walker, but when
it comes to battle all of his enemies (including the Bosses) are
easy. He can use his normal attacks and brawl skills to knock
down opponents. Wolverine can finish opponents without spending
energy just to use skills. Focus his support skills like Rude
Awakening and Berserker Fury. For an Environmental Supporter,
do not choose Jean Grey. Nightcrawler, Iceman or one of the unlockable
characters are recommended. Iceman is more than a environmentalist.
He is also an offensive type. Do not spend skill points for his
support skills. It will not help.
The best team that can easily help a beginner finish the game
quickly is Night Crawler, Wolverine, Colossus, and Sun Fire.
For those advanced in the hard difficulty setting, the best team
would be Iron Man, Dead Pool, Charles Xavier, and Magneto.
This combo works when you have Wolverine and Juggernaut
on your team. With Juggernaut, walk over to Wolverine and pick
him up, just as you would do to a chair or other item. When you
throw Wolverine, he will do a diving attack to nearby enemies.
This also works if you need to send Wolverine over large holes.
Hint: Strong Gambit:
Once your characters get to about level 30, use Sunfire,
Bishop, Toad, and Gambit as your team. The idea is to pump up
Gambit as much as possible. Put as much of the stats you can into
each ability as follows: Sunfire = Flaming Fury, Bishop = Energy
Fury, Toad = Secretion, Gambit = Energy Form. Also, throw an extra
6 or 7 stats into each characters Mutant Mastery so that they
will recover EP faster. During game play, activate all the abilities
listed above and switch to Gambit. He will be able to run very
fast and be super strong. Eventually he will have +200% movement,
+400% or more attack and many of damage and defense bonuses. Also,
because they regain their EP fast, you can reuse the abilities
as soon as the affects wear off.
Hint: Strong Iceman:
Iceman is the strongest character in the game. If you
boost him wisely, he can kill most of his opponents with a merely
single hit on melee attack. Distribute his Status Points wisely,
developing more his Focus and Speed. At his Projectiles Mutant
Powers, concentrate on his Cold Crush, and a little in Freeze
Beam and Ice Slide. Do not spend Skills Points in Boost Mutant
Powers, as they are useless. Also, if the rest of this is done
correctly, Iceman will grow strong enough to easily fight alone.
Spend the maximum you can in his Passive Skills, particularly
in Ice Combat and Cold Mastery. Get the Danger Room Disk: Challenge
- Iceman, and get and equip his Signature Unique Item, Cryogenic
Booster. That brings a very good trait, Double Cold Damage. As
for other equipment, put some that give bonus to Damage (not Energy
Damage, Electric Damage or Radiation Damage). If done correctly,
Iceman can hit easily his enemies (because of the high Speed),
hit lots of enemies with the Cold Crush Projectile Mutant Power,
and, finally, will give lots of damage. For example, you can do
500 and even more damage with melee attack, depending on your
level, thanks to the Passive Skills, Ice Combat and Cold Mastery,
and the Cryogenic Booster Signature Unique Item.
Hint: Strong Juggernaut:
Juggernaut is the best character in the game, period.
When it comes down to the amount of damage a character can cause,
Juggernaut is far above and beyond everyone else. Juggernaut simply
has the best skills and attributes of any character for the following
He has the most powerful "XTreme Boost" move. "Path
Of Destruction". This skill surrounds the Juggernaut with
a glowing aura that not only destroys every single object in the
environment that he touches (for example, when running through
walls to make new doors), it turns his attacks into the most powerful
ones in the game. While this power lasts, his weak basic melee
attack (X) does over 32,000 points of damage to any non-Boss
enemy. Couple "Path Of Destruction" with Juggernaut's
"Bull Rush" ability to get a controlled, continuous
charge that instantly kills anything you touch while plowing straight
through parts of the environment that would otherwise slow you
down. This effect lasts between 20 and 50 seconds, depending on
how much you level it up. Note: The 32,000 points of damage is
at skill level one, character level 30, and no critical hit.
He has the best passive skill in the game, "Balanced Form".
Contrary to common sense and popular belief, the Juggernaut is
not slow. He starts out as slightly faster than average, attack-speed-wise,
but this passive skill raises his attack speed and his defense
rating. Maxed out, this skill makes him the fastest in the game,
even exceeding Nightcrawler.
He has the best character design. The only weakness the Juggernaut
has is the obvious one, no ranged attacks. However, this really
does not make a difference. The Juggernaut has an absolutely obscene
amount of hitpoints, and with the aforementioned "Balanced
Form" he also enjoys one of the highest defense ratings in
the game when equipped similarly. To summarize, the Juggernaut
is all but invincible, more than counteracting the disadvantage
he gains by being a melee fighter. But the character design benefits
do not end there. Size matters; when packed into a large mob of
enemies, the game takes the extra length of the Juggernaut's arms
into account, enabling him to hit several enemies at once even
with basic attacks. Thus, all of his mutant skills become radial
or area-affect attacks.
He has the best skill in the game, "Crimson Fury". This
skill pumps up the Juggernaut with a massive damage increase to
a regular attack for a relatively large EP cost. Although it seems
worthless, this effect is cumulative. Even at level one, this
skill allows the Juggernaut to land a series of blows on the enemy,
each more than six times stronger than the one before it, as long
as the Juggernaut has EP remaining. This allows for huge amounts
of damage to be done quickly, but then uses up all of the Juggernaut's
energy and a great deal of your energy potions, which is not good,
and so not the best in the game. However, with each blow, the
Juggernaut gets bigger in physical size, allowing his gargantuan
arms to hit up to half of the screen at once. Another reason this
is useful is "Superconductor". This is one of Bishop's
"XTreme Boosts" that, at the cost of 4 X-shards, powers
up the entire party so that for a short duration (about 30 seconds),
all characters can use skills without spending EP. Pair this with
Crimson Rage. The Juggernaut will exponentially increase his damage
with each of his eight or nine attacks a second, for thirty seconds.
With combo, even low to mid level Juggernauts can do a literally
infinite amount of damage (when clobbering through entire rooms
of enemies at the rate of a few seconds each, it is possible to
receive the four shards that were spent before Superconductor
wears off, allowing continuous use of it. For example, with a
level 30 Bishop, level 40 Juggernaut, level 39 Storm, and level
37 Nightcrawler, it is possible to easily do the entirety of the
Apocalypse Boss fight (generators, horsemen, both Apocalypses,
and movement time) in less than thirty seconds. There is only
one downside to this ability -- it is too good, and makes the
game no longer fun. Use it only for difficult Boss fights. Try
this in enemy-clogged locations (for example, the aerial platforms
level in Act 4, with the infinite Sentinel hordes) and watch as
the Juggernaut gets bigger until he fills the entire screen or
even overflows it.
These are only a few of the highlights of playing the Juggernaut.
He also has other awesome skills that are worth investigating,
but are not needed to justify the Juggernaut's role as most powerful
character in the game.
Hint: Saving anywhere:
You can save the game almost anywhere by using a Blink
Portal. You do not need to wait half an hour for an X-Traction
point. Just open up a Blink Portal at the end of your session
or whenever you feel the need to save then use the X-Traction
point in the Sanctuary.
