A way to make hunting orbs easier (trick).

Well, we all know about pressing up on the D-pad. But unfortunately, that just shows you the area of where you're currently standing on your mini-map. However, if you hit PAUSE and then unpause, the map is temporarily zoomed out to the maximum so you can exploit the game into showing you more of the area.

So here's what you do: hit Pause, unpause and immediately hit up. You'll see roughly 3X the area around you showing you more locations. Do note that the map gradually goes back to the smaller size, but you'll have enough time to factor whether or not some collectables are in nearby buildings. This really helped me out hunting down orbs, giving me more space to cover.

You'll also notice that the map is zoomed out when in a vehicle going at top speed...but this way, you can be on foot. Combine this with any online map you see and you can sweep through areas much easier.

Smile Nice Tip :-)

Nice tip mate shame i have just completed all the hidden orbs and agility orbs

Another Tip that saves time is don't worry about height it doesn't matter how high or low you are the orbs always appear regardless of height i tested this with the chopper and hit maximum height and the orbs still appear on the mini map :-D
