GUIDE IS 100% COMPLETE!

Introduction:

Collecting all Tech Orbs (Tech Curator) will be the hardest achievement in the game. It may cause you to replay levels several times. Look in Chapter Select in the Main Menu to see what percentage of Orbs you have collected in each level. Levels have various numbers of Orbs; just because gaining 1 Orb in one level gives you 1%, it doesn't mean each Orb is worth 1%. Sometimes you may grab one and it will give you even more percentage. Collecting Orbs from defeated enemies DO NOT count for the 100% in each level, only the Orbs found in the environment DO count.

Particularly hard to find Orbs are marked in BOLD.


NOTE: If you die before you hit a checkpoint, the Orbs you've picked up may not be saved, so you have to back track to pick them up again, and sometimes that may not be possible because the way back is inaccessible. So you'll have to replay the Chapter to get to them again. (thx to spamfilter)


Chapter 1:

***There are no Orbs in this chapter.***


Chapter 2:

- After you have picked up the Health Pack, there are 2 single Orbs clearly visible to your right.
- Go up the stairs here to find 4 more.
- You can jump up somewhere here again to find a platforming section with a single Orb in the middle and a 3-Orb-cluster and a 8-Orb-cluster at the end of it.
- Jump up the platform left of Trip before talking to her. There is a 3 Orb-cluster. Left of the 3 Orbs still on the platform is also a 8-Orb-cluster.
- After jumping to the other side of the bridge, there is 1 single Orb to the left of the bridge.
- After lowering the bridge, fighting two mechs and lifting some debris out of the way, there is 1 single Orb next to the next Health Pack.
- After the "Tell me what your plan is"-cutscene, go back to the last area and there is a 3 Orb-cluster to the left behind some plants.
- Back in the new area, there are 2 single Orbs lying around to your left.

- Go to your target marker and there's a single Orb lying around next to it before you jump up.
- Jump up to find a clearly visible single Orb.
- Right before lifting the second block of debris, turn around 180 to see a lot of Orbs on a platform behind you. Go and get them. (thanks to spamfilter - those might be the hardest to find Orbs in the whole game)
- After lifting the debris and fighting two mechs, there are 3 single Orbs scattered in the small area before going through the door.
- At the two mechs with laser detectors, there's a single Orb at the beginning of the area and another single Orb under the stairs.
- After Trip has created a Decoy and you're running across, stop at the middle of the path and jump up to the platform via some poles. There are 2 single Orbs and a 8-Orb-clusters up there. Call for another Decoy and jump back down.
- Reaching the door at your target location, distract the mechs, call Trip and go down the stairs to find a Health Pack and 2 single Orbs.
- Jumping down from the Health Pack after calling for another Decoy, there are 5 single Orbs and a 3-Orb-cluster lying around.

- After "We have a problem", there are 2 single Orbs right at the beginning of the area.
- Park Trip on the first platform, run back behind the big car wreck and follow the poles to jump up to the big bridge. Collect a whole bunch of single Orbs, a 3-Orb-cluster and an 8-Orb-cluster here.
- And 9 more single Orbs before throwing Trip up the ledge and 4 more after (robot attacks).
- Jump up the boxes and the truck to find 2 single Orbs and an 8-Orb-cluster.

- In the area with the aquarium and the Demolisher, run around and collect all the orbs before beating him and advancing to the next chapter.


Chapter 3:

- At the start turn around and find 4 single Orbs and a 3-Orb-cluster behind you.
- Moving on there is a single Orb and a 3-Orb-cluster behind a car wreck.
- Enter the building to your right and collect 16 single Orbs and four 3-Orb-clusters on the ground.
- Still inside, look up till you see staff ammunition and find the spot where you can climb up there for an 8-Orb-cluster.
- Go outside and collect a total of 8 single Orbs lying around next to the building before and in between the road blocks.
- Find one more single Orb on the balcony above the robots and 2 single Orbs next to the robot on the ground.
- After killing the robots, enter the damaged container to your left to find 6 Orbs. 2 more are right behind the container.
- Lift the car, enter the next area and find a clearly visible single Orb on the ground.
- Help Trip up and collect 2 single Orbs in the middle of the section and 2 more when you go all the way up.
- Collect some more scattered Orbs in the somewhat bigger area where you find the Health Replenisher and jump over a roadblock to find 5 of them behind a wall.
- Jump to the next area, collect your first Mask (cutscene) and move on a bit to find a single Orb a bit hidden in a plant right before you climb up a ladder.
- Climb up the ladder and scout the second floor of the building for 5 single Orbs and a 3-Orb-cluster.
- After discovering the shield mechs, there's a single Orb next to the box on your right and a 3-Orb-cluster right behind the box where Trip is hiding.
- Kill the shield mechs and explore the building for some single Orbs. While jumping around the beams behind the robots, pan the camera and look for staff ammunition, there is a 3-Orb-cluster located on a balcony to the right of it. Next to it is a Health Pickup.
- Moving on to your target location, jump across the beam, collect 2 single Orbs, jump down and collect another Orb. This last Orb apparently can be glitched. Try to walk close to the hole before Trip crawls through or jump on top of it on the other side. Might take a few tries. (thanks to Omatsei)
- Go through the door and collect all the Orbs on the ground. When encountering the next group of mechs, turn around and find a way up. Some more single Orbs, an 8-Orb-cluster and some staff ammo are waiting for you.
- The next part was too hectic to count Orbs. Just kill the mechs and turret, advance with Trip and collect every Orb you come across until she has hacked the door.
- While standing on the beam that leads to the turret, turn right 90, jump to another beam and to a platform to find 3 single Orbs.
- Enter the building and find a single Orb next to Trip.
- After jumping down from the staircase, collect some more single Orbs around the mask.
- Jump down again and collect 4 Orbs on the next floor.
- After the next cutscene, find 3 Orbs on your left and 4 more when jumping down.
- You have to decide between the left and right area to jump down. The right side (while facing the mechs) has a crate that lets you climb back up, so collect them first. (thanks to Omatsei & demi)
- Then jump down again, kill all the mechs and collect all the Orbs in the area before killing the Demolisher and therefore finishing the level.


Chapter 4:

- From the start, collect 11 single Orbs scattered on the ground.
- Climb up and to the left, next to the first Mask is a 3-Orb-cluster.

- Jump back down and over a road block behind you to find 3 single Orbs and an 8-Orb-cluster. Back on the main path, there are 2 single Orbs before leaving the building.
- Run into the camera to collect another Orb. Along the building are 2 other single Orbs before fighting the dog mech.
- From the start of the chase scene keep to the right, a 3-Orb-cluster will appear there.
- Inside the building, collect 9 single Orbs before throwing Trip up.
- Jump up and collect 3 Orbs on the middle chandelier before continuing with the platforming section.
- When you jump down in a destroyed red corridor, turn around and collect 3 single Orbs behind you.
- In the big hall, collect a total of 9 single Orbs and three 3-Orb-clusters scattered around on the ground floor. One of the clusters is hidden to the left of the coulisse.
- There's an Orb next to your target location (interaction symbol).
- Collect the third mask, align the beams so that they're all the same height below you and collect the 8-Orb-cluster opposite of where you're supposed to go.


Chapter 5:

- Collect 2 single Orbs on the platform where you start, jump to the next and find another one.
- The next part is not so cool as there are like a million Orbs scattered around and Trip likes to kill you if you go too far away from her. Try to collect all Orbs that are accessible for you when riding on your cloud. Common places for Orbs are below bridges and on islands and some platforms. Also some are next to the 1st Mask.
- Blow up the yellow tank on the half-sunken ship on the left with Plasma to find three 8-Orb-clusters.
- Double-check everything before lifting the block for Trip and advancing to the next area and finding 2 single Orbs right in front of you. Make sure that you have really collected all Orbs in this small room before going out the door. (thanks to spamfilter)
- After throwing Trip up two times, grab the handle above you on the red platforms and jump up for 3 single Orbs. Next to the 2nd Mask are some more Orbs.
- From the Mask, go back to the chair and onto the main path along the beams. There's a single Orb on the first beam.
- When you have to carry Trip, collect 4 single Orbs at the end of the platforming section.
- Jump down from the containers and collect 4 Orbs.
- Before fighting the mechs, search for 3 single Orbs on the ground. Fight the mechs to your left and collect 5 more. Fight the ones in front of you and collect all Orbs.
- Jump up the container and collect 3 single Orbs around the Health Vial.
- Throw Trip over the gap and scout the area for 2 single Orbs before fighting the 2 gun mechs in front of you. There's another after passing the destroyed wagon and a 3-Orb-cluster is hidden in a big pipe further ahead. Next that pipe, jump over to the area where the gun mechs were before and collect 6 more single Orbs near the plasma ammo.
- Back on the main path, collect 4 single Orbs next to another plasma ammo pickup before Trip crawls through a hole.
- During the following platforming section, you will automatically collect one single Orb. Collect 3 more after jumping down from the container. 1 single Orb and a 3-Orb cluster are on the next platform with the white car.
- When the turret is firing at you, collect all Orbs while advancing towards it. 3 are hidden in a narrow passage below it. Take out the turret and go all the way back Trip's path to collect some on the way and 3 more at the end.
- Before lifting the block, there are 2 Orbs behind a car directly behind Trip.
- After Trip has discovered the Turrets and the functioning Vehicle, jump over the road block to your right to find some single Orbs and backtrack a bit to enter the big red container and find an 8-Orb-cluster inside. In front of the small box next to the roadblock is another Orb.
- Move yourself and Trip to the next cover and look for an Orb behind you.
- The next part will kill you. Literally. Trip drives the car like a maniac and you need to collect all Orbs on your way while the turrets are raping you. Good luck.
- Fighting the dog mech, fly around and collect all Orbs before killing it and thus advancing to the next Chapter. Double-check the ground floor and all of the platforms.


Chapter 6:

- From the start, turn around and collect 4 single Orbs around the motorcycle. Right and left of the bridge are 2 additional ones and next to the electric fence on that bridge is a 3-Orb-cluster.
- Follow Trip over the other bridge and collect a single Orb on the way.
- Jump over the branches and collect 3 single Orbs on the other side and near the bridge.
- Do not lower the bridge for Trip yet. Instead, walk over it and jump up to a rope to find a single Orb and the first Mask of the level.
- Collect the few Orbs at the bridge "puzzle" and throw Trip up.
- After falling down and climbing back up, collect a single Orb next to the next bridge.
- Lower the bridge and find another Orb on the other side.
- Back on the other side, collect 3 single Orbs above Trip.
- Collect 5 single Orbs before entering the watchtower and about 8 on the first island after exiting while fighting the mechs.
- Jump to the next to find 6 more, 4 on the third island and one after the short platforming section.
- After fighting the huge wave of mechs, collect 6 single Orbs near the Health Pickups and Stun Ammo.
- Use the gate to find 2 single Orbs behind it. Complete the short platforming section, fight the mechs and collect all Orbs that are scattered around.
- Jump up 1 floor of the building and collect 2 single Orbs, one on each side. Jump up once more to finish the chapter.


Chapter 7:

- From the start, collect all Orbs on the first island. Look behind the red couch opposite of the climbing pole for 2 single Orbs.
- Follow the Mask guide to the first Mask and collect some single Orbs around it. (If you have been following the guide from the start, you will get the "Tech Collector" achievement around here.)
- Jump up to the next platform and collect 2 Orbs while the gun mech is shooting at you. Collect a single Orb next to the Stun Ammo while you make your way to the gun mech. Kill it, jump down and collect 11 single Orbs that are scattered over the area. Climb up the huts, kill the 2 gun mechs and follow the path to find 2 single Orbs before jumping down.
- Jump down and find 2 single Orbs to your left and 2 single Orbs plus a 3-Orb-cluster to your right.
- Collect a single Orb between the road blocks and 2 single Orbs next to the Health Pickup.
- Follow the beams upward to find 6 single Orbs near another Health Pickup on the next platform.
- Kill the 2 gun mechs, jump to the Plasma Ammo and collect 2 single Orbs next to it. Jump down, kill the other mechs and collect all Orbs on the ground. Jump to the pipe on the hut and collect 2 single Orbs and a 3-Orb-cluster on the roofs. Now shoot the barricade and open the door.
- Collect 2 single Orbs before jumping over the branches.
- 4 mechs will attack you, kill them and collect all Orbs on the ground.
- Jump the pipe on the hut and collect 2 single Orbs on the next island.
- You'll see a cutscene that shows you falling off a platform and you'll enter a bigger village area. Kill all mechs first. Then collect all Orbs that are scattered on the ground near the huts. Follow the Mask guide to the next mask. Find the first pipe you can climb (the camera will pan) and collect a single Orb and a 3-Orb-cluster up there. Find the second pipe where you can climb up (left of the gate) and collect 5 single Orbs and a 3-Orb-cluster there. Go back to the start where you climbed up here, pan the camera and jump across the beams to find a 3-Orb-cluster on a roof next to a Health Pickup. Jump to another roof to find a single Orb in plain sight and an 8-Orb-cluster hidden around the corner. Double-check everything before you leave the area via the gate.
- Kill the 2 mechs and collect all Orbs here before leaving through the next gate.
- Find a single Orb next to the Health Pickup. Go through the doorway to start a battle with a lot of mechs around a huge pole. Kill them all. Now carefully search each inch of this area for Orbs. Some of them blend in with the background so look closely. Double-check everything before you open the gate for Trip and finish the chapter.

Chapter 8:

- You're in the same area as before but there are new Orbs scattered around. Only go as far with Trip until you can walk faster and then collect them all. There are some clusters and some single ones. Also go through the door you opened for Trip before and collect the Orbs and the first Mask there as well. If you approach Trip, you will leave this area. But you will come back later if you missed anything, so don't worry.
- Collect 4 single Orbs at the start of the new area before the climbing section underneath the electric fences.
- Jump down to Trip and collect 3 single Orbs. Pan the camera and look for Plasma Ammo, there's a single Orb next to it. Jump around to the switch and collect a single Orb there. Climb the ladder to find another Orb. Throw Trip up and jump over there to collect some more Orbs and continue platforming to the next cutscene.
- Scout the area and collect all Orbs. There's a 3-Orb-cluster right next to the fenced robot and a lot of others around the windmill tower on the ground. 2 are hidden behind a stone behind the windmill.
- Start climbing the stairs and collect 3 single Orbs next to Trip. Climb all the way to the top of the windmill, collect 1 Orb, pan the camera until you see a Health Pickup and run over there to find a 3-Orb-cluster next to it.
- Drop the sail, get to the platform below the second Mask and collect a single Orb.
- Use the windmill poles to reach the red platform on the right and collect another Orb up there. Finish the puzzle, kill all mechs and go through the door.
- Kill the dog mech and go through the security door to finish the chapter.


Chapter 9:

- At the start, turn monkey around 180 and collect 2 single Orbs. Explore the starting platform and collect another 4 single Orbs near the first Mask.
- Follow the main path and collect 4 single Orbs on the way. Turn left at the intersection (Trip goes right) to find 2 Orbs. Back on the main path, collect 6 more before you see the mechs (cutscene).
- One is behind Trip, one more around the orange rock corner and from there one more down towards the robots.
- Kill the mechs. Find one Orb on the first platform and another in the water right before it (use the cloud). Jump over to the other side and collect all Orbs on the water level and next to the robots on the small islands (I counted 22) before going up the ramps. Go up the ramp all the way in the back of the area, kill the robot and collect all Orbs around the Health Pickup. Collect 2 more Orbs near the switch on the middle ramp. Some Orbs blend in with the background, so search carefully. Double-check everything before you pull the switch and follow Trip to the boat.
- In the boat area, collect 5 single Orbs around the starting platform. Kill the mechs, destroy the arm and help Trip BEFORE you explore the area with your cloud. Now collect 8 Orbs in the water and don't go too far or Trip will kill you. Collect 12 Orbs on the platform with the boat and following it around to the right. Collect 5 Orbs on the platform left of the boat near the Health Pickup. Double-check everything before you get on the boat.
- Get off the boat and find 2 Orbs next to the switch.
- Get off the boat again and thoroughly explore this new area while also killing all mechs and the 2 turrets. Beware of the mines and double-check everything before you get back on the boat. There's a group of 3 mechs in this area that will wake up if you pass by. There's an Orb to the left of them in front of the wall next to the ramp and I'm 99% sure that it is also glitched. I checked this area 9 times and it wasn't there. When I checked for the 10th time, it suddenly appeared.
- After the second Mask the dog chase will start. There are a lot of Orbs scattered around in this scene, which will most likely cause you to having to replay the chapter several times. About 4 are on the 2nd ramp on the left (you need to time your jump), 4 others are in the middle of the right path when the path splits up and 3-4 are located along the wall to the right at the beginning of the tunnel at the end. After the dog chase, you'll finish the chapter.


Chapter 10:

- Collect a single Orb on the starting platform.
- Follow Pigsy to the decaying titan. He will start a race, just ignore him. Instead, scout this island for 5 single Orbs and three 3-Orb-clusters on the ground.
- Jump up once and walk as far to the left as you can while panning the camera a bit. There's an Orb hidden behind a small wall disguised by the fixed camera angle.
- Start climbing the titan and collect 2 single Orbs on the grate. Continue and find another Orb on the way. Climb back up after falling down and collect another Orb. Jump again to get another Orb. Jump over the 3 beams, jump up and get another Orb on the big platform. Continue upwards via the ramps and find 4 Orbs on the way. Jump up again and collect 3 Orbs before climbing up the rest of the titan.
- When Pigsy has reeled you both back down, follow the path until you first jump down. There's a single Orb here that might be hidden behind a pole depending on your camera angle. You can double-check everything you might have missed before on your way back down including the island until you open the door to the next area.
- Collect a single Orb next to the Health Pickup while Trip hacks the other door. Go through the door and make a left to find a 3-Orb-cluster.
- Jump down to the purple platform and collect 3 single Orbs on it.
- Use the wheel and find a single Orb behind Trip before throwing her across. Collect 6 single Orbs on the ground before using the 2nd wheel.
- Kill the demo mech and its minions, climb the pipe and collect a single Orb on the new walkway. Another 3 are in the demo mech's lair (supercharger). Also collect 3 on the way down via the ramp.
- Go back to the start, lower the walkway, shoot the bomb and collect 2 Orbs on your way up the ramp before the next door.
- Open the door and find an Orb right next to you. Follow Trip & Pigsy and collect 3 Orbs on the way.
- Throw Trip up, follow your insta-kill-filled path, shoot the bomb and meet the others. Go back the way they came from to find an 8-Orb-cluster and the first Mask at the end. Go back to Trip and search for a handle on the walls where you can jump up and collect a 3-Orb-cluster next to a Health Pickup. Jump back down, face Trip & Pigsy's starting point and look up to see a single Orb and a 3-Orb-cluster on another platform - look for the handle to jump up there somewhere right below it on a pillar. Follow Pigsy to the next door and collect 2 single Orbs on the way.
- Open the door and find 2 Orbs behind it plus 3 more on the path.
- Jump down, fight the mechs and collect all Orbs on this huge platform. Turn around 180 from where you're supposed to throw Trip up and jump across the beams to collect a single Orb on the way. Once you reach the big platform, look down to see a smaller red platform with a 3-Orb-cluster.
- Throw Trip up, collect a single Orb on the way to the turret and then take it out.
- Help Trip with the first crane and use the handle on the wall near the first switch to reach a 3-Orb-cluster on a platform and some other Orbs on the way to the 2nd switch.
- Use that switch three times, move to your target location, platform around and save Trip from the robots. DO NOT throw her up yet. Instead, jump down two times and collect a single Orb hidden in the bright spot on the platform. Then finish the chapter.

Chapter 11:

- Go up the small ramp next to the boat for an 8-Orb-cluster.
- Kill the first group of mechs and collect a single Orb between the road blocks.
- Kill the second group of mechs and start exploring the area before you go through the door. There's a ledge with ammo, a single Orb and a 3-Orb-cluster to your left while facing the door. From there, jump to the Health Pickup and collect a single Orb and an 8-Orb-cluster next to the first Mask. Right of the door is another Orb. Go through the door and enter the next area.
- Right outside the door is a single Orb. Follow the path and collect all Orbs on the way. You can bypass the fixed camera by holding LT. When Trip & Pigsy reach a green island, go right instead of jumping to them. You'll find a spot where you can climb up to the 2nd Mask and some Orbs on the way.
- On the green island, collect 5 single Orbs on a ramp to the right and 2 more before you jump down.
- Jump down, follow the path and collect 7 Orbs on the way before the next group of mechs. Kill the mechs and collect all Orbs in the area.
- While on the mech's arm, collect all Orbs to the left and right.
- Enter the palm and fly around in a circle at the edge while fighting the Rhino to collect all Orbs.
- Followed by ANOTHER DAMN CHASE SCENE that will cause you to replay this chapter several times. I recommed 3 playthroughs, 2 for collecting the Orbs and another for the "Got the Horn" achievement. All Orbs are in a mostly straight line between the blue speedups. 2-3 hang in the air at the first big jump. End of chapter.


Chapter 12:

- Collect all Orbs that are scattered inside and outside of the starting room on the ground.
- Go outside the door Trip opens for you and collect 5 Orbs along the walkway to the left.
- Follow Pigsy to the right and go down to find 2 Orbs in front of you. Move along the walkway to find 2 other Orbs that are clearly visible. From there, move to your left towards the target location and again find 2 Orbs in front of some boxes.
- Jump up to another walkway and collect 2 Orbs on it before using the button.
- Quoted from Tyger7's Mask Location Guide: "Once you find yourself at a rail cart, hit the switch (if you haven't already). This will roate the cart so that the red lights are facing forward. Now get on and hold http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/../images/misc/lb.png and tell Trip to move you "forward". You will now go back towards where the mask is." Next to the mask are two 3-Orb-clusters. For visual aid check out his Mask video guide.
- Now get to the other side via the rail carts and collect 2 Orbs next to the other button.
- Push the button, move forward again on the cart and jump up to another walkway that has 5 Orbs on it.
- Jump down from the walkway at the opposite end and find 2 Orbs while doing so.
- Finish this pseudo-puzzle and go to the sub. Kill the mechs, follow the path to the console and collect all Orbs on the way.
- Behind the console is a pipe where you can climb up to find a single Orb.
- The next part requires multi-tasking again. Kill all mechs, shoot the fans for Pigsy and collect all Orbs on the walkways. Use the 2nd console, continue downwards and collect a 3-Orb-cluster at the end of the walkway.
- Enter the next room, kill the first group of mechs and do not jump to the next walkway. Instead, look for a handhold on the wall where you can jump up to find ammo and 3 Orbs.
- Jump to the next walkway, kill the rest of the mechs, collect all Orbs and the 2nd Mask and pull Pigsy up to finish the chapter.

Chapter 13:

- After Trip has sent out the dragonfly and Pigsy has taken another way up, don't follow the dragonfly yet. Instead, scout the platform behind Trip for 2 single Orbs, an 8-Orb-cluster and 2 other Orbs on a pipe nearby.
- Follow the platforming section until Pigsy asks you to shoot at some gear. Shoot it twice, jump to the other side and collect some Orbs behind the boxes next to the Health Pickup.
- Continue upwards and find a single Orb in front of you.
- When Pigsy asks you to shoot his bombs for the second time, don't do it. Instead, jump up the pipe below him and jump back down behind him to find a single Orb and the first Mask. Now jump back down in the room and destroy the first anchor point.
- Walk up a ramp with Pigsy opposite of it. You'll reach a big ventilator. To the left of it and down is the 2nd Mask, to the right are some Orbs on a platform you cannot reach yet. Same goes for the next ventilator. Continue on the path instead.
- When you reach your target destination (dragonfly), you'll collect 3 Orbs next to it.
- Jump down and destroy the second anchor point. Now go up on the right, collect some Orbs and follow Pigsy & the dragonfly again.
- Trip will deactivate another fire for you. Follow the platforming section through 2 flames until you hang on a pipe on a red wall. Below you can see an Orb. Drop down (B button) and collect 3 single Orbs and a 3-Orb-cluster on the ventilator. Finally reach the platform to collect 3 additional Orbs on it. (Or you can simply climb to that platform and get on the ventilator from there.)
- Don't enter the lift yet. On the other end of the platform is the second ventilator where you can collect some single Orbs and an 8-Orb-cluster.
- Now get on the lift and meet up with Trip. You'll ride up another elevator and enter a large room. Jump over the poles to the left and up to a platform where you can find two 3-Orb-clusters.
- Go back down, through the power core and up another elevator. Jump up the pipe, collect an Orb in an alcove on the left and follow the walkway around to the right to find another single Orb.
- Shoot the bomb, master the insta-death platforming section and collect a single Orb on the big cube. Collect two more Orbs at the end of it next to a Health Pickup and 3 others on the big platform opposite of them.
- Follow the poles until you shall shoot bombs again. Go on the big wheel and collect a single Orb next to the Plasma Ammo. Jump down on the wheel to collect another Orb. Jump down to Pigsy via the poles and collect 3 Orbs near him. Now destroy the third anchor point.
- Jump through the gear and collect a single Orb on the other side. Don't shoot the last anchor point yet. Jump over to another Orb next to some Plasma Ammo first.
- Destroy the last anchor point, ride the elevator back down, go through the power core and jump upwards via the poles again. Trip will lower some platforms for you, use them to get around and collect all Orbs while fighting the mechs. Protect the cores and finish the chapter.


Chapter 14:

- Upgrade for the last time if you want to, go outside, shoot the leeches, fight the two mechs and collect all Orbs on this platform.
- Climb to the next platform, shoot the leeches and collect some Orbs plus a 3-Orb-cluster.
- Climb to the third platform, shoot the leeches for the third time, kill all mechs and collect all Orbs on the platform. Go down the blue ramp, collect some more Orbs and a 3-Orb-cluster on it and jump over to the blue room.
- Collect all Orbs here, then climb the pipe and turn around to find a 3-Orb-cluster behind you. Now kill all mechs, collect all other Orbs on this platform, face the door and jump down to the right of it for the final Mask and the last Orb (both "Curator" achievements should pop one after another right here). Congratz on the hardest achievement in the game :) Now finish the game and enjoy the ending.

Ive gotten a few 100%s on some levels. There's just some pretty tricky ones. I don't know if you should do an entire guide, as at leat 90% of them are REALLY easy to find. Maybe just note ones you think were difficult to get. I starteds writing a guide on this too on chapter 2 like you are and gave up. The method I was using was how many orbs inbetween cutscenes, that way someone could just count as they went along but I kept losing track when I was being attacked so I figured others would too. Just name the hard ones to find, that's my tip! Oh, and it's not a cluster of 5 it's actually a cluster of 8 ;)

What you're missing is between these 2 steps

- Jump up to find a clearly visible single Orb.

- After lifting another debris and fighting two mechs, there are 3 single Orbs scattered in the small area before going through the door.

Before lifting the debris, turn around, there are a cluster of orbs on a higher level.


I have 100% on 2-6 and 8 so far, still missing 4% on 7, haven't played 9-14 yet because I try to finish one before I move on to the next chapter, and you can get them all on any level.

It's easier if you just do a youtube video walkthrough like they did for Prince of Persia. That game had over 1000 orbs but people still managed to compile them all into different vid guides.

Also, dont bother writing down every single orb, just jot the hard ones down.

after my hard run (2nd run) i ended up with 4 levels at 99% and the rest 100% most of these were stupid ones i should of never missed and the 2 levels where you are chasing the dog and rhino. i like what tyger suggested though. there is a few levels where you actually need to keep your eyes peeled for a grapple point to get up to some orbs. them are the ones that should be pointed out. most of the rest were pretty simple.

I've gotten 100% on Chapter 2, but only 99% on Chapter 3. I've gone through it now 6 times. I've checked every single tree, corner, shrub... tried jumping off every ledge, tried jumping up almost every wall, I've even jumped while standing in plants in case there was an orb just above my head that was hidden by the leaves. I bought the strategy guide and followed their map to locate, as best I could, the location for every single orb. At this point, I have to assume the achievement is glitched. If I'm honestly missing one orb in Chapter 3, it must be the single best hidden object in a video game I've ever heard of (and I got all 1000 orbs in Prince of Persia, all 500 agility orbs in Crackdown 2, all the collectibles in The Simpsons, etc... I like collecting).

The only time I even thought I saw something was on my last playthrough, right after you rip the gun arm off the mech. We ran up the stairs and she crawled through a small hole, I jumped around to meet her, and for a split second, I think an orb appeared right behind me, but it disappeared as soon as I saw it. According to the guide, there is supposed to be an orb around there, but I don't know if I got it previously or not. Can anyone else confirm that there is supposed to be an orb at the top of the steps, right behind Trip when she hacks the door?

I know it's bad form to reply to one's self, but after some searching, I found a forum post on ps3trophies.org that claims that the orb in question is glitched. Apparently this orb IS present immediately before you drop down, but as soon as you touch the ground, it disappears. So if you have 99% on Chapter 3, and you're wasting hours of your life searching for it, it's possible that it's glitched. The recommended solution is to drop down directly on top of it, so you get the orb before you touch the ground. I'll try that later tonight, and will confirm on here if it works.

Edit: Just confirmed. That orb is definitely glitched. Also, I forgot to mention that since I've gone through that level so many times (7 now), I can also confirm that you can get all the orbs at the last part without replaying the level. As you walk into the multi-level room (with the 4 mechs at the bottom), go to the right first, drop down to the 2nd floor (the mechs are on the 1st floor) and get the stun ammo. There's a crate next to the wall that lets you climb up one level, then run over to the opposite side. Hopefully that saves someone some time.

Just so you know. You dont need to PLAY THIS PART TWICE on Chapter 3. Jump down the RIGHT side (where Trip jumps) - this lets you climb up a nearby box to the upper level, where you can drop down the other side (where you cant climb up).

Ok, after freaking out over 99% on Chapter 3, I finally found the one I was missing. So add this to the guide as I definitely do not see it there.

At the part where you rip off the gun from the mech (shielded), it's in the room with all the metal bars (the same room with the plasma ammo). There is a hole inthe wall leading outside to a metal platform that has a health vial, and a single orb.

Are you sure that's not:
"- Kill the shield mechs and explore the building for some single Orbs. Look for staff ammunition, there is a 3-Orb-cluster located on a balcony near it."
Because there is also a Health Pickup right next to the aforementioned Orb cluster on the balcony. Reworded the segment to make it easier to find.

Thanks for your help!
Just to clarify: Is the glitched Orb supposed to be before or after Trip crawls through that hole?
Because it also appeared to me like I sucked up an Orb while walking close to the hole before Trip went through. I wrote it down as "you get it as you jump down" after she crawled through because that seemed more logical. See if my new wording in the guide fits your description please :)

Yes, the new description sounds right. I would have given up completely on collecting orbs if I wouldn't have seen that one for just a split second. (After getting 100% on chapter 3, I continued and got 100% on my first playthrough on Chapters 5-8, although I missed the second mask in chapter 6.) Chapters 2, 3, and 5 are definitely the hardest so far.

There are no hidden ones on this level. Except the ones by the mask at the start but you should have gotten that already. You're probably missing one or two at the big playfield outside pigsyland right before the boss sequence. Just check every corner especially the big watery area right underneath the pigsyland sign.

If you've done all that then I assume you did in fact miss a few during the chase sequence. It's impossible to get all during this sequence so you need to go back and pick another route. There are some to the left and others to the right.

Good luck, and remember ch 2, 5, 9 are typically the hardest areas. If you maxed those, you're home free. I am unfortunately stuck at ch.2 which also happened to be the longest.

When you first lift the debris and get to the door, turn around, there is an orb in the corner, that one eluded me for a long time.

The other advice is to use the cloud in the opening area and examine it thoroughly again, there are a few that is very difficult to find. If you're missing orbs it's most likely in that area.

When you say watery area underneath the pigsyland sign, are you talking about the tunnel path toward the final boss?

I played the final sequence multiple times, and often killing myself on purpose just to explore the whole region, I can't imagined missing anything there.

I did struggle with 2 and 5 as well, but I have both of those at 100%, you should use the guide at the beginning of this thread.

Yeah, I got the one(s) in that area above the bridge. and I keep looking all around the beginning, too. I keep reading about there being some area with and orb or two next to some ammo, but all I see at the beginning is a vial, not any ammo.

Yeah, I also got confused at the beginning for the same reason: there's no ammo in that area, just the vial. I have just played chapter 6 (second playthrough with no tech orbs) and remember another tricky one: just at the end of the chapter, when you get to the final watchtower, you climb up the first story and you could see a tech orb at the right side. Well, there's another one in the opposite side, but you can't see it because of the camera, even moving it, so just walk left and you should find it.

Wow, I finally got the achievement! Thanks for the guide and all the tips!

Except for chapters 2 and 5 and the infamous chases in chapters 9 and 11, the rest are fairly obtainable, so cheer up! I can confirm that the only way to get the two chase achievements is playing on easy, so don't bother to beat the time attack if you're playing on normal or hard: concentrate in tech orbs in these cases and don't mess with the clock.

In the dog chase (end of chapter 9) there are some tricky orbs on the right side of the path, when a pillar falls down and you can see two blue spots to acelerate: the left one is the shortest to get the dog, but if you aim to the right one you can get 4 orbs (a 2%). The rest of the orbs of the chase are in the "obvious" path.

In the rhyno chase (end of chapter 11) there's only one way to follow, so you can find all orbs in the same path. Because of the speed, you may lost some of them (you must play this level twice minimum if going for 1000G so don't worry too much). My last orb here gave me a 2%, so do your calculation.

spamfilter
10-12-2010, 06:20 AM
Yes, finally got 100% on 9.

Turns out I missed some in the chase, when the structures collapse during the chase, you can go left around it or if you're close enough to the Dog, you can follow on the right before the collapse blocks your path, if you follow the second collapse to the right, there are some orbs. I always missed them because I didn't know I could follow and always went around.

After at least 7 playthroughs on each I still have 99% on Chapter 3 and 98% on Chapter 5 and i'm getting pretty angry at this game. I've tried looking to see if the missing orb on c3 is this glitched one but I have never seen it there and have no idea where the last one is.

Worse is Chapter 5. I was looking around on the cloud and decided to jump up onto the raised platform to the right of where you start. I had been on here several times and knew I had cleared it of all orbs from it but as I was landing I could see an orb in the far left corner. I pressed the right stick in to land and upon moving the camera the orb had vanished! I moved Monkey slightly and the noise when you pick up an orb sounded plus the counter in the top right corner appeared so assumed it to be picked up and my last orb. After getting to a checkpoint then quitting I noticed that my count was still at 98% and even checking the same place again yielded no success.
On earlier playthroughs of this level and others I have found orbs literally blocking my path so that there is no chance I could ever have missed them as I had to pass through them to continue. One in fact on c5 I KNOW I had picked up previously but it had reappeared on a later playthrough.
I am convinced this game is glitched as there is nowhere I can look and after about 10 goes on chapter 5 I am so sure I have all the orbs. Apart from the fact that I have completed 5 levels in a row without losing my shield and I don't have the achievement for it. It took 7 levels for it to give my achievement for not dying.

Love the game but i'm at my wits end with this orb business and if anyone could make even a picture guide to some of the more obscure orbs I would be eternally grateful.
P.S I have blown the boat up on c5.

Thanks to Demi I found the missing one on Chapter 3. Could not believe I had missed it so many times :(
This has given me a little hope for chapter 5 even though ive got no idea where to look. Plus I have just completed chapter 3 without taking a single shot and got no Untouchable achievement again...If I end up finding those last orbs on chapter 5 and can't get 1000G because of this I will not be a happy bunny.

Stuck at 98% on Chapter 8 and 92% on Chapter 14 (that's all I have left for 1000/1000), any non-obvious orbs there? I've gone over those levels a few times, but I seem to be blind to them.

Nevermind on Chapter 14! Really was blind. Just Chapter 8 to go now.

Found my last one on 8 - was a little alcove to the left right before a bridge you drop down for Trip.

And I was sooo happy because I found all orbs of chapter 9 without any effort =(

Any tips where the remaining orb(s) might be?

Missing 2% in Chapter 5... Any help is appreciated :)

When you are on the cloud flying around in the beginning - there is a boat on the left side of the map. Fly around and shoot it in the gas tank with a plasma blast - it sinks and there aer 2%'s worth of orbs underneath it:)

I was at 99 percent in chapter 9 for a while, but I finally found the one I was missing. So to help out any others it was here: the second area where you have to shoot both sides of the arm. The base of the arm is on a small piece of land. I couldn't find it before I shot one side (maybe I just missed it, or maybe you have to shoot it first), but after I shot it, right underneath the side not with the fingers, there was one lonely orb hidden in the colors of the ground.

Found my last one on chapter 5 while playing on hard. Not hidden at all, I just passed by one of the orbs in the bridge.

Now I only need chapter 10, Hope to be done with this game today :)

Sweet, found the last orbs on chapter 10 too. Overall it was pretty simple for me, only 2 chapters with missing orbs and found them while replaying on hard. When I started I though it would be a lot worse, the guide helped with most of the hard orbs in the game.

Finally got the achievement. Ch. 4 is the only one that gave me real problems. Was stuck at 97%. After the crane sequence you start working your way down, once off the crane there a room with ammo and orbs, drop down once, and there's another side room with orbs, then you drop again, run past a concrete pylon on the ground and climb up. As soon as you climb up, turn around, there a little ledge with a 3 orb cluster. That's the one I missed, don't know how, as I almost always turn and check my corners. Hope this helps.

Just have to play through on Hard and I'm done.

You're mixing up the achievements. There are achievements, "something accomplished, esp. by superior ability, special effort, great courage, etc" and there are Achievements, something that gives you gamescore. It's true, there are Achievements that aren't achievements. But only the really hard Achievements are true achievements. I hope you can comprehend that

Just a note to people.

When you die before you hit a check point, the orbs you pick up may not be saved, so you have to back track to pick them up again, and sometimes that may not be possible because the way back is inaccessible. So you have to replay the chapter to get to them again.

Here are the ones on Ch3 I have been missing for 4 runs and finally found them, just in case it helps anyone else:
- Right after the climbing sequence where Trip asks about why the Mechs try to kill them and Monkey replies "it's all they know" and BEFORE you grab the first health vial, explore the left side and jump over a barricade. Behind it is a single orb and behind the wall a cluster of them.

Editing in the ones that kept me busy in the other chapters and which I didn't see explicitly mentioned anywhere.
- Chapter 5: Check behind the OTHER half-sunken ship in the cloud section, not the one which you can sink but the one near the border of the map. Right next to it slightly hidden from sight is a cluster of 3. Those plus a random single one got me from 98% to 100%.

Good orb hunt everyone :)

10-17-2010, 04:41 PM
Just wanted to note that in the Dog chase on Chapter 9 there are 2 paths you can take. The left path is the most obvious with the most orbs, but about halfway through it is possible to head right and follow the Dog more directly instead of taking a lot of jumps. I think the branch is just after the second ramp/jump. There are 3 orbs on this right path and were the last ones I needed for that chapter. This also means the Dog chase will have to be played a minimum of 2 times to get all the orbs.

I only have Chapter 5 left to complete. I'm at 99%. I've blown up the boat at the start for a lot I hadn't found, but I must still be missing one somewhere.

EDIT: Found my last orbs. They were in the red shipping container at the start of the APC section. It was a ring of 8.

solus909
10-17-2010, 08:27 PM
After at least 7 playthroughs on each I still have 99% on Chapter 3 and 98% on Chapter 5 and i'm getting pretty angry at this game. I've tried looking to see if the missing orb on c3 is this glitched one but I have never seen it there and have no idea where the last one is.

Worse is Chapter 5. I was looking around on the cloud and decided to jump up onto the raised platform to the right of where you start. I had been on here several times and knew I had cleared it of all orbs from it but as I was landing I could see an orb in the far left corner. I pressed the right stick in to land and upon moving the camera the orb had vanished! I moved Monkey slightly and the noise when you pick up an orb sounded plus the counter in the top right corner appeared so assumed it to be picked up and my last orb. After getting to a checkpoint then quitting I noticed that my count was still at 98% and even checking the same place again yielded no success.
On earlier playthroughs of this level and others I have found orbs literally blocking my path so that there is no chance I could ever have missed them as I had to pass through them to continue. One in fact on c5 I KNOW I had picked up previously but it had reappeared on a later playthrough.
I am convinced this game is glitched as there is nowhere I can look and after about 10 goes on chapter 5 I am so sure I have all the orbs.

Dude, I am ever glad I read your post because that orb on the raised platform HAS to be glitched. I decided to go back there and check and sure it enough, there it was. It was about the 10th time I've gone through Chapter 5 and I was at my wit's end stuck at 99%. I know for a fact I had been there many times before. One thing I did do though is switch the difficulty to normal (I was playing the whole time on easy) so I don't know, maybe that has something to do with it.

Sorry you're having trouble with the orbs as well, but you saved me a ton of time, and I appreciate that.

Arrr god I finally completed Chapter 5 and most of the others, but Chapter 9, 11 and 12 still at 97-99%. Really out of ideas right now and a bit frustrated. The funny thing about that is I actually enjoy not being able to just google up a guide and complete it (which you DO when you get frustrated, have little time and it's available, no chance to deny it). Feels a bit like back in the ooold days before internet and flatrates and I love in a weird way ;)

10-17-2010, 09:06 PM
dunno if it helps. for chapter 9 i just missed a orb which was in front of a red wall. once you reach the boat and the cutscene ends, you jump down and to right and behind you was my last orb.

if anyway is interested. during the dog chase part, most orbs are in a straight line between the blue boosters if you strictly follow the left path. once you reach the "end" where a titan arm blocks the right way, and you are forced to go left. before you jump onto the last platform on the left path, there is a gap to the right in the minefield. now backtrack from there to the above mentioned arm and you will find 3 or 4 orbs.

my problem right now is chapter 10, i found the orbs located on a walkway above the main path, after you jump off the hydraulics and ended with 97%, so where are the last ones which are not on the main path?

There are two elevated areas at that part. One is immediately to your right as you land from the hydraulics and have regrouped with Trip and Pigsy. You'll see a hand-hold across the gap. The other is to the left, backtracking the way Trip came. You'll see a climbable pipe on the way to the console that Trip used to start the machinery.

Any idea concerning chapter 12 - the dam? I think I must be missing a cluster somewhere. Went through the chapter 4 times now and can't see any more orbs on the walkways on or off the main road, do you remember any well-hidden orbs? The chapter is rather short and if I weren't missing some % I'd assume I've REALLY seen all of it, so I guess I must be blind..

In the last room where Pigsy is being lowered into the water, after clearing out the first wave of enemies, turn right and run forward as usual. Instead of jumping the gap and triggering the next wave of enemies, turn around and look to the wall for a hand-hold.

That's about the only Tech Orb cache I can think of that wasn't immediately obvious.

There is talk of glitched orbs on Chapter 9, but my last 2 were in the very first combat area. I missed one around the base of the ramp leading up to the switch, it was near the blue speed boost (somehow, they blend in very well on this level), and one was directly below me in the corner of the pool at the start of the area, before you engage the dormant mechs.

ok, just replayed chapter 1-3 yesterday on hard, got the glitched orb in chap 3, but still have only 98%...thought i followed the guide strictly, but apparently i missed something...

chapter 14 is at ~94%, got the orbs around the mask and can't believe that there are any missable ones in this straightforward level^^

TheTCD
10-19-2010, 02:11 PM
I'm not sure about chapter 14, as the only hidden orbs are with the mask at the rear of Leviathan. Every other orb is along the main route, although with that said, there was one that I missed on the first side before you jump through the flywheel to cross to the other side. The platform will slope down, and there will be a slightly lower section there that you can drop to. The orb I missed was right there.

As for Chapter 3, I missed one right near the beginning. After fighting or avoiding the first set of mechs, there will be a red container. I missed an orb that was down the side of it, next to the ravine. After moving the car and throwing Trip up and following her, you will climb a series of ledges and enter a room where you will find a serum. Stand in the doorway and walk directly ahead and vault the wall. There will be some orbs behind the slanted broken wall ahead.

I'm playing through the level again now, so if I remember any, I'll let you know.

EDIT: After defeating the shield mech and taking it's gun to kill the other mech, head back down the flight of stairs and onto the fire escape. I missed that orb on my first run through, too.

When you enter the area with the turret, climb the ledge on the left side, then turn left and climb up on to the air conditioning unit, then run along the pipes for more orbs (if I recall that is. I know that there's definitely ammo there though).

More as I find them.

10-19-2010, 02:20 PM
yep thx, i will shower now and then restart chap 3...i'm pretty sure i collected these you mentioned as i followed the guide. even found the one in the big area with the turret, where you have to defend trip from several waves. the one i mean is above the mech with the detachable gun on a platform that also has a plasma barrel next to it.

TheTCD
10-19-2010, 02:29 PM
Aside from the places I edited into my last post, the last place I can think of would be the last room, where you drop down on the right side first where Trip waits, then climb back up and drop down the left side before dropping down to the mechs. I seem to remember a couple of orbs being on that right side, although I could be mistaken.

Lucienna
10-19-2010, 04:03 PM
Since you missed exactly "my" orbs on Chapter 3 behind the road block, maybe you get lucky with the ones I've searched for a long time in Chapter 5 as well xD posted that a while ago, but maybe it helps: look behind the OTHER (unsinkable) ship in the first area - close to the beginning near the edge of the map, there's a cluster of 3. I found that one while jumping around on the cloud and trying to get behind some obstacles, but I think you can just ride in. The later ones are pretty well covered in the guide.

Firstly thanks to Brambledamble for the guide - very useful. I noticed yesterday when I was mopping up for orbs and just played through chapters the orbs collected did not save!?

Alright Ill give you my little nuances with this achievement. On chapter 5 there is a single orb on a small piece of red/pink metal right next to the ramp to knock down the second object for trip.

On chapter 9 you have to do the dog chase twice. I thought i was being smart by jumping off a ramp to get the ones on the right side but actually you have to be close enough to the dog to get under the yellow arm and then you will get four little orbs for 2%.

Chuunks
10-21-2010, 02:40 PM
Yes, finally got 100% on 9.

Turns out I missed some in the chase, when the structures collapse during the chase, you can go left around it or if you're close enough to the Dog, you can follow on the right before the collapse blocks your path, if you follow the second collapse to the right, there are some orbs. I always missed them because I didn't know I could follow and always went around.

Thankyouthankyouthankyou!!!

This should be included in the guide IMHO. Also, for Chapter 9 - might be good to mention that the two orbs only appear under the big arm after you shoot the sides.

It's in the guide, although with a different description. About Chapter 9: Not true, I collected them before I shot the sides. And I advised to help Trip before you start collecting the Orbs anyways, for the simple reason that she might fall down and die, causing you to collect all Orbs in this area again.

Anyone found any other tricks for getting the glitched one in chapter 3? I am at 99% and pretty sure that is what I'm missing to get 1000/1000.

Edit: Tried the level a few more times and turns out it wasn't the glitched one. It was the one I think demi was refering to here:

Ok, after freaking out over 99% on Chapter 3, I finally found the one I was missing. So add this to the guide as I definitely do not see it there.

At the part where you rip off the gun from the mech (shielded), it's in the room with all the metal bars (the same room with the plasma ammo). There is a hole inthe wall leading outside to a metal platform that has a health vial, and a single orb.

There is actually two small balconies one that has the health that can be accessed from the side of the building via polls and the other that you have to be standing on the platform underneath the one with ammo, with you back facing the mechs you just fought and walk straight out to find one lone orb. So if your also at 99% might want to check it.

Thanks for the guide Brambledamble and everyone who helped. I wouldn't have been able to 1K the game without it.

chapter 9
- Get off the boat again and thoroughly explore this new area while also killing all mechs and the 2 turrets. Beware of the mines and double-check everything before you get back on the boat. There's a group of 3 mechs in this area that will wake up if you pass by. There's an Orb to the left of them in front of the wall next to the ramp and I'm 99% sure that it is also glitched. I checked this area 9 times and it wasn't there. When I checked for the 10th time, it suddenly appeared.

any confirmation on if this orb is actually glitched? I've gone through the level many times and im stuck at 99%. i feel like the orb could be glitched but if it is i have no idea how to get it.

UPDATE: currently just beat the game on hard and have 100% on all the levels EXPECT chapters 5 and 9. i have played them over 10 combined times and im still stuck at 99% for each. ARRGH!!:mad::mad::mad:

i have completed the game on hard then decided to go back and collect all tech orbs. So i changed difficulty to easy and start collecting orbs. i got stuck at chapter 5 replaying it almost ten times. Then i decided to replay it but with difficulty set to normal and then 2 orbs Apeard !!!

HaHAAA! i just found the missing orb in chapter 5 that has been causing me so more frustration. the location needs to be added to the guide since its practically invisible. its located in the first section of the level (surfing part) and on one of the last platforms before u lift up the block for trip. its hidden right in the middle of a bush on the left edge of the last big platform after u have dropped the truck into the water and are about leap up and lift the block for trip. its VERY hard to spot and can only be seen from certain angles depending on the location of the orb when its floating.

its easiest find if u start at the blue crate that u must lift for trip (thus exiting the area) and walk directing back to the right corner of the platform and look down. u can see if hover in the middle of the bush.

hopefully this helps some people out since this level along with chapter 9 seems to be causing the most trouble for people. now i only need 1 orb in chap 9 and im done with this game!:woop:

Great guide, I was wandering if you can just redo a level, get the last few orbs, then quit the level, AND still be 100%?

basically, do you have to redo all levels TO THE END to get 100% collectibles, or can you quit after you picked up the orbs you miss?

if I can quit it would make it a lot easier!

All right, it's stickied. I colored things and took out the stuff that isn't needed (such as 100% complete). Go ahead and just modify the introduction, you can copy/paste what I say about orbs in the guide if you want to. Just kind of some info they should know before using your guide.

I can confirm (if anyone hasn't yet) for the Chapter 11 chase scene with the Rhino, all orbs can be collected on the first level playthrough. If your willing to do a few attempts which can help you know the pathway better (preferably allowing the Rhino to crash into the tanks with Trip on its back rather than restarting checkpoint and watch the unstoppable cut scene when you mess up), 100% tech orbs can be achieved on the first play through of the level without redoing the level several times just to go back and collect an orb or two. Just follow the upward path and make sure you collect each orb along the way. Miss one, just let the Rhino crash by falling behind. I can't confirm saving trip in the allotted time for the achievement AND doing the 100% orb run so that's still up in the air. I suppose its possible on a perfect run. I was more concerned about the tech orbs. :p

Oh I think there is a misunderstanding. I didn't use the guide for the levels I mentionned. It was during my first playthrought ^^

I will go throught these levels soon on easy, with the guide on my knees ^^ I was just asking for more details about very very annoying orbs in the levels I have to do.

Update : levels 7 & 8 completed ^^ worst time is coming ...

Update 2 : OK, 100% completed for tech orbs ! Thanks for your help with this amazing guide ! Well, I just have to deal with the chase achievements ... And I don't understand what I badly do to can't unlock them ...

Update 3 : I don't know why but I get the 2 last on the first try tonight ... Anyway, 100% completed ^^

this guide is indispensable and a huge thank you for the time and effort that, undoubtedly, had to go into making it. i'm using it now to clear up collecting the remaining orbs and i was worried, because i had collected the vast majority of them during my initial playthrough, that it would be difficult to follow for collecting the ones that i did miss, but the guide is written so well that i have not had a single issue with finding the ones i am missing so far. some of these orbs i never would've found without the input from the guide, so thank you again for creating it!

Some really tedious orbs in this game, almost takes away the fun!
Finally picked up my last orb, somehow on chapter 9 when you first encounter 2 mechs I missed the one in the water, right in front of the green plant in front of you before the mechs. Didn't help that I thought the orb near the end was glitched and kept replaying the last area!
Really appreciate the guide. Helped so much, only cleared 1 chapter 100% before using the guide!

A general tip for chapter 5 is keep looking in the cloud surf area at the beginning. Don't assume you've found them all until you have 100%. I was stuck at 99% for aaages. I must have played through that damn chapter 20 times hehe. The last two lousy orbs were, of course, located at the very beginning - before you start climbing the bridge.

The first one (looking all innocent, though I knew better - oh yes) was bobbing happily underneath a big piece of bridge debris over on the right hand side of the area. However, it was placed at a devious angle when looked at from the starting point. I just never approached that particular piece of bridge from that particular angle so I kept missing it. Keep riding around and try to approach cluttered areas from various angles. Slow down or, better yet, find pieces of the bridge to stand on and thouroughly scan the area around you from different vantage points and angles.

The other orb was on one of the final platforms you run along with Trip - after the container and truck but before you lift the blockage. It was out in broad daylight on the right hand side (when facing the bridge) on a piece of broken-off slab that tilted down toward the water. It was rendered practically invisible by the fact that the surface underneath it reflected a lot of sunlight. That, along with the generous bloom effects in the game, camouflaged it like a tiny spherical ninja.

As a final tip - it felt a lot better for me to keep Monkeys active ammo on Stun while looking around. Having the Plasma ammo activated keeps drawing my attention when I scan for orbs. Plus, there's always the chance that one is hiding in that corner behind the HUD - inadvertantly making me ignore it in the belief that it's the ammo I'm seeing and not an actual orb.

12-16-2010, 12:36 AM
Alright Ill give you my little nuances with this achievement. On chapter 5 there is a single orb on a small piece of red/pink metal right next to the ramp to knock down the second object for trip.



Thanks this is the one i was missing. If you have 99% check this location.
Thanks again

The bad part is that I replayed the first area of chapter 5 and I'm sure the orb isn't there. :(

Ok was getting a bit frustrated and worried over chapter 9, my last 1% for 1000g. I tried the dog chase over and over then I thought it was the ramp glitch, so kept restarting checkpoint.
Restarted the level again, and it was right where you first encounter mechs on that level asleep. Trip is standing on some metal gating, directly in front of her in the water below was the orb, maybe it'll help someone.
Also its the part where you are first allowed to use the cloud on that level.

Question 1:

If you miss an Orb in any chapter, when you replay it and collect it, do you need to finish the level or you can quit right away and its save ?

Question 2:

If you chapter select a level and try to get the orb you didn't get, do you need to collect every orb in the level or the one you already collected will dissapear and you'll need to collect only the remaining one or every of them are still there ?

You'll have to complete the chapter, or at least get to a checkpoint. If you chapter select, the only orbs you should see are those that you missed. Those you have already picked up will no longer show up.

Just be wary of chapter 9. There seems to be a glitchy orb there, as that's the only chapter I've been stuck at 99% for a while, and I've gotten all the orbs from the Dog Chase.

Thx for taking the time to answer my questions. I appreciate it.

I only played thru level 1 to 7 on hard so far, but I love the game. When I pick it up at gamestop I wasn't so sure, there was really no game I was interested in, so I decided to give that I try. I don't regret it at all. And the 1000/1000 seems to be a bit challenging.

Chapter 10:

...
- Open the door and find 2 Orbs behind it plus 3 more on the path.
- Jump down, fight the mechs and collect all Orbs on this huge platform. Turn around 180 from where you're supposed to throw Trip up and jump across the beams to collect a single Orb on the way. Once you reach the big platform, look down to see a smaller red platform with a 3-Orb-cluster.
- Throw Trip up, collect a single Orb on the way to the turret and then take it out.


It is very important to note that due a bug, if you die or restart the last checkpoint after jumping down in the area where the mecs are, all the orbs previously collected between the door and the jump, are not saved; therefore, since it is not possible to jump back up to the first platform of this area, you will be forced to re-play the whole damned chapter. Learnt it in the hard way... twice...

In this part it might be helpful to tell people to jump the gaps as opposed to trying to go around them. It has a much higher success rate.

Chapter 5:

- The next part will kill you. Literally. Trip drives the car like a maniac and you need to collect all Orbs on your way while the turrets are raping you. Good luck.

So you might want to reword it like so.

I'm sure it was tough to write.
I was able to unlock both achievements on the last stage, back-to-back.

Suggestion:
The orbs and masks should be joined together in the same list.
It's extra tedious to follow 2 lists while playing the game.

Just want to share an experience I had in chapter 10 that might be worth mentioning.

I did my first playthrough on easy without guides and found what I could through exploration. When I reached the large final room of chapter 10, I explored to the central octagonal platform without throwing Trip up to a nearby platform. You can jump down from the octagonal platform to a smaller platform with some orbs, but you have to be in a very precise location to jump down. I tried jumping down with no luck and since I was unable to backtrack to Trip (you can't seem to jump from the first pipe back to the thin beam), I thought I was stuck, so I reloaded checkpoint, which started me back at the point that I entered the large room. Then I finished the chapter and thought nothing of it.

My 2nd playtrough was on Hard and I used this guide to help find the orbs I missed. In chapter 10, I found 5 orbs in plain sight in a hallway leading to the large room mentioned above. I couldn't understand how I missed these orbs in my first playthrough as you would have to make an effort NOT to get them. I was careless in the large room and died fighting the 4 mechs below the octagonal platform, which restarted me at the entrance of the large room. I then finished the chapter. When I exited to main menu, I found I only had 98% of the orbs, which was surprising as I had followed the guide very carefully and felt that I had found them all.

I reloaded the chapter on Easy to try to find the orbs I had missed. As I got back to the hallway before the large room, those 5 orbs in plain sight were there again. I was so confused, but then it made sense- dying/reloading checkpoint in the large room restarts you as if you had just entered the large room, but it doesn't save the orbs collected in the previous hallway. This explains why the 5 orbs weren't counted on either of my first two playthroughs- one had a manual "reload checkpoint" and the other had a death in the large room.

I know Woodsmonk posted one video from this user on youtube, but I figured it'd be helpful to know that he has 100% videos for what seems to be every chapter. I've been following his videos and it keeps things simple. Easier than reading through text for me.

Thanks to Bramble for the written FAQ! Using this for micro-managing each chapter, after viewing JeffDawes YouTube vids made this actually a really enjoyable 2nd playthru, after me putting off attempting it for fear of cursing and hating the game :)
