Free Runner

Collect 500 Agility Orbs   

Agility orbs are basically like the hidden orbs except they increase your agility and are only found off the ground, usually on rooftops, ledges and signs on the sides of buildings. Again, the easiest way to find all 500 agility orbs is to use the same technique described for the "Orb Hunter" achievement above and mark them off as you go using the map here.

Yea! Just got this, was at 498 for a while then found a guide and the last 2 were on the agency island. Now on to the 300 hidden orbs, short just 40 now.

Yessss! For the record, my last one was on top of the church near the Pacific City Bank. I used this map:
and photoshopped a black dot on every circle once I found it. A couple are in the wrong place though.

Eff this achievement...legitimately! Proud that I got it but I finished the game with 496 of them and had to spend 4 hours checking every orb in the youtube guide. Not sure if it was worth it for 50G

I have managed 432 without a guide by just playing the game. I will be using a guide for the rest and seeing if I can get this done.

I have reached about 480 without the guide but after following the vids in the achievements guide I finished with 496. I find this very odd, maybe the game didn't count some of the orbs, but will do one complete follow-through to check it out. Not gonna start a complete new game. Grtz to y'all.

I have gotten 492 without a guide. It's friggin impossible. I've been to every single tall building in the Whole city while using the sniper Scope to locate orbs, but to no use. IT'S IMPOSSIBLE!!!

Does anyone still have the video guides? All I can find is guides for Crackdown 2. I've got 482, and it's hard going off the map since it's difficult to tell if I've already gotten it or just not seeing it.

Beat the game, maxed my stats, and got all these orbs in 3 days.

After i finished my play through i brought up a map of the orbs online and marked them off in paint as i checked there spots. I didn't have to check every spot though, maybe half. I sped the process up by checking the rims of the map first. Also having all the gangs defeated allows you to take your time searching.

I really, really hate games with shit-ton of collectibles and no in-game way of tracking them

After finishing the game for the first time i got like 350 orbs, now i will have to use a guide to get the remaining ones

Most of the guides linked do not exist any more, but you do not really need them. You just have to be careful.

The Agility Orbs are always on top of something. They are never hidden or under anything. That is what Hidden Orbs are for.

I got this achievement by sweeping each zone of the city from the roof tops. I would just go right to left jumping on every building and looking around at the corners.

Once I finished all of the zones I was at 493. I needed 7 more. Those 7 were found at street level on top of railings, as well as on top of the lighthouse that I had never explored.

Now doing it without guides is not fast. It took me a couple of days of doing it for an hour or two, because eventually searching for orbs drove me mad, but I still did it.

A copy and paste from my other comment.

Here you are, you've come to the last page looking for help as the videos in the post are now deleted and nearly every agility orb guide on the web is near non existent. Well you've come to the correct place. I'm putting this here to help out everyone who contributes to this website and helps others out. Enjoy

OK, At long last, I FINALLY found the Candiedskull Agility Orb guide that has went missing and is no longer accessible as the Candiedskull website is closed down and up for sale.

I spent hours trying to find a proper guide for these orbs(focusing on the favourite Candiedskull guide), looking through loads of different websites, many in polish,Italian,Russian, you name it. untill I was about to give up and except that I wasn't going to

find the Candiedskull guide which I read so many people talking about and recommending until I remembered about archiving web pages.

LUCKILY some awesome person on the web (or a few) made an archive of the famous Candiedskull Agility Orb page back when the website was still accessible from as far back as 2007 (ilu)and I managed to find it.

So here it is, the famous candiedskull guide without numbered orbs.

Here's it with numbered orbs

This allowed me to get them bloody last 10 orbs which other guides had been missing out and was driving me insane and finally get the "Free Runner" achievement
