Walkthrough Wednesday: Lost Planet 2 Hints and TipsBy Benjamin Opal
In Lost Planet 2, the previously-frozen world of E.D.N. III warms up a bit, but it’s still populated by slimy, nasty, giant monsters, so we’re here to help with a guide to the best Lost Planet 2 hints, tips, cheats and walkthroughs around the Web. The game was only released for Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC yesterday, but GamerZines already has a full text walkthrough. For video, check out Video Games Blogger’s massive list of YouTube walkthroughs on a single page. They’re all taken from Media-Cows’ impressive video guide, which you can view in playlist form on YouTube proper.
For general hints and tips on Lost Planet 2, GamerZines strikes again with a handful of pointers, all of which adhere to the basic gaming strategy of “collect all you can, kill the deadliest bad guys first.” For something more technical, you’ll want to see this Japanese YouTube video, which should be decipherable even if you don’t speak the language.
Over at GameFAQs, a forum poster discovered a cool exploit, which I’ll just paste in full:
When holding a support weapon (shield or injection gun) hold start and press the back button.
You will start charging a mega attack and need at least 2 more people to come to you and press a button (AI works too, when charging it up they drop everything and come to you)
Then press and hold the right trigger and BOOM! Depending on what weapons your friends or AI have equipped the combined attack will differ.
