Hidden Orb Video Guide!!!!!

I made a video guide for all of the hidden orbs scattered across Pacific City! Just make sure you DON'T play in Keys to the City or you will not get the achievement!

I put a lot of hard work into this guide so I hope this helps all of you out!

A STICKY wouldn't be such a bad idea either

I think that already exists, but I just can`t find the marker. I have found all the locations, I think... But I can`t get that last one to trigger. F***ing frustrating!

I hope, one day, that someone will be willing to play co-op and find it for me, that would be cool. But enough off-topic from me

Very nice work! It's too bad I didn't have this when I was doing the achievement. I was stuck with just a map and screenshots

This should definitely be stickied!

Glad to hear the hidden orb guide helped you out!

Thanks so much mate, I had 3 to find and gave up over a year ago!

I put them on my psp and it worked a treat to play a section and then repeat on the 360, great stuff!!!

One thing that got me was you get height on some of your jumps that my maxed out character comes nowhere near.

I wish you had made this about 2 months ago lol. I had to use Herman Gatevold's guide, which gets boring. I love video guides with NO jumping around, it makes it so much easier to follow. Good work! I would definitely use it if I still needed those hidden bastards.

Thats great to hear man! Thats an absolutely awesome way to use my guides with your PSP! (I use my Ipod Video lol!)

The reason why I jump so high in the videos was becuase I did the whole thing in Keys to the City mode which allows you to enhance your agility even more. I activated it to speed the guide up a little bit.

Now the jumps make sense. Thanks again.

This guide is amazing, thank you very much AceX. Really appreciate the hours you've put into these videos.

I am stuck at Hidden Orb number 137 (#137 in your videos)
It's in the video entitled "Crackdown: Hidden Orb Guide - Shai-Gen - Part 3"
It's also the second orb you collect in that video.

You jumped onto a statue right next to the pillar, where the orb is located. You then jumped, threw an object and it appeared to have given you a boost toward the orb and you obtained it.

I have tried this method and have never been able to boost like you did. How did you manage that? I can't seem to get this orb any other way.
I even tried jumping from the top of Wang's Tower and landing on the pillar, but to no avail.

Any help given toward this orb is appreciated,

-SE

Yeah man..that orb is a real pain even with keys to the city..but wut you have to do is have a fully upgraded SUV car line it up to the pole and take another medium size car and throw it on top of the SUV..if you have a 4 star agility rating than you might be able to get it.

If that doesn't work you may need to stack one more car or if you have a friend with you via XBL and get 2 four-star SUVs and stack up

if you need help on the Jump Glitch,

Lift an object. Jump with the A button. At the height of your jump, press RT to throw the object and immediately press and hold the A button to do a double jump.

Nice one
I'm gonna give that a try right now and let you know.
I did try stacking civilian vehicles but they just slid off each other so stacking them didn't work.
Not sure if stacking SUV's would be different.
I have 4 stars on all skills so I'll try the SUV and jumping from there.

I'll also try that jumping tactic first, thanks for the quick response and answering the query. Appreciate it,

Thanks a ton dude. I've done 2 playthroughs and have ended up with 299 both times. Do you know if there's an orb that disappears or something depending on your progress - like if you kill a certain boss or something? I haven't looked at the videos yet, so the answer may be in there, but I will be putting them to use soon.

No, I dont think ne of the orbs disappear but something that relates to something like that would be the statue on top of the mountain in the Los Muertos territory near the stadium. It disappears when you eliminate the crime in that area..but I would definitely just restart the game and use guide I have on youtube to avoid the frustration or you can use the guide with your 299 orbs and watch the vids up until you find it which could be a bit tedious
