Easy Experience

Heres a video I put together.




Difficulty: Insane
Must chain all 4 kills (3 soldiers + Devastator) to get x5 EXP
My character is fully upgraded.

I was around Level 25 and it takes about 5 attempts to get to the next level. After you have gained your experience, return back to the save room to save, go to the in-game menu, and select "Load Last Save". By doing this the enemies will return. Rinse and repeat.

If you walk a bit farther, you don't need to load the save. They respawn in if you go far enough away.

Do you know how much faster or slower this method is?

As every other game that involves leveling up, it's quicker if your level is still low, but longer as you are higher up. I started doing this when I was Level 24, and it took about 4 or 5 times with a x5 bonus to progress to the next level. From Level 30-40, it seemed like I did this 10-15 times to level up 1 level with the x6 Bonus.

I did the "Less than 13%" achievement and and only gained less than 2 Levels. I started from 40 and ended about 10% away from 42. It took 1hr and 35mins. However this was on Casual.

So to answer your question, yeah it is faster. That 1hr and 35mins I spent on Casual to level my character up by 2, could've easily leveled my character up by 8 had I done this method instead.

Thanks for the response. So it will save a lot of time. Sweet. I think I am going to play this game, now seeing as I don't have to play 5 times through the game.

You've incorrectly labled the ED-209 as a "Devestator."

You're welcome.

There a spot where is the hyperspeed puzzle (where you fight a spider under a small bridge) , well start from 2 room from there (to the left) there's a soldier with a rope , beat him , try to run to the room with the brigde , beat the 3 guys (you should have a X4 orX3 , then keep going take the door in front of you , beat the guys on the platform X5 , drop down beat the guys X6 turn right beat the other one X6 go back to the left , there's a soldier with a rope , X7 and if you can make it , run to the right there's another one near a door X8

Then go back where you start (saferoom) and start all over again


There's also the place where there's a conveyor belt on the ceilling with large crate , in that area there's 9 ennemy in that big room.

Not everyone has seen Robocop, so it would be best to name the enemies by what they are called in the game. Even if the only "Devastator" in your life is a Transformer.

The only problem with getting all those multipliers is that soldiers don't give you that much exp for killing them compared to the Devastator.

Yeah that's true , it's just one of the only place I see that you can possibly do a Max Combo

At the final level you can melee the guard and then kill the huge white robot , I did a X3 and kill the robot and almost level up from 1 level , too bad we can't get out of that zone and repeat

I finally got Serious Complex with this method. Took around 10 mins per level if you are in the 40s.

Nice method. I've found that jumping past the Devastator to kill the big guard on the next dock to the left, then coming back and getting the Devastator gives a x7 bonus.

Discovered this method while playing. Best one. By far. Except.... you can kill the soldier on the left dock to get a 6x combo. Which makes leveling faster.

There's also a way to get x10 in the same spot... instead of going left from the Save Checkpoint at the start, go up the cliff to the right, kill the guards up there first (leave the leftmost one for last), then sprint down to the bottom and proceed as shown in the video. You can get "MAX COMBO" on the Devastator that way.

Not sure but it's probably just as easy/quick to jump into the save point and reload the last save.

Thanks Optics- this really is a great method for getting to level 50. It only took me about 30 minutes to get from level 44 to my achievement. I was about to start my 4th time through the game until I saw this. Someone should throw this explanation on the actual guide

Holy fuck this is boring.

Done about 30 runs and Im only half way through 45. I think I'll just give up on this achievement since I may die of boredom if I continue any longer, even with the 7x on the Destroyer.

Stupid achievement is stuuuupid.

I hate grinding so bad and this is the holy grail of doing just that. I just loved this game so I wanted it to be on my completed list but meh fuck it.


Edit: I did it anyway lol. Took about 2 hours to get from 44-50, with maybe only a bit over half that time actually doing the runs. Did it with only double jump and no hook shot so I couldnt do max, but the x7 time (by jumping over destroyer and getting the big guy at the dock to the left) worked decently. But god that was boring. Thank god for beer and music while I did such a mundane task.

Thanks for the guide. I've put this achievements off for so long, and I just really wnat to get it. This guide should help me quite nicely. But as a rough estimate, how long do you think it would take to get from level 32 to 50?

EDIT: Nevermind, I got it. Took me 3-4 hours.

I'm managing 10x experience through this method. You just gotta be really quick. Also, by doing it this way you don't need to restart your game.

Where exactly do you go to get "far enough away?"
