Jak II

How do I beat those hellcat cruisers?

Games Guru: Ah, they can be pretty pesky. Use Vulcan Fury. Switch zoomers a lot. Hide out when the Krimson Guard comes for you. They’ll go away after a while. Stay in the air and do your best to avoid fire. But you will get hit, a lot.

Is there an easier way to beat Kor (metalhead leader) besides your stated way?

Games Guru: From everything I can see, beating Kor is fairly straightforward old-school gaming. He has no hidden self-destruct button; you simply shoot him till he goes.

Here are some tips, though. First, eliminate the eggs as quickly as you can. You can destroy them before they hatch, leaving you with more time and probably more ammo for Kor. Second, don’t worry too much about Kor’s laser early on. You can dodge that single ray easily enough. Third, after you have taken out one-third of Kor’s life status, you will see flying heads and a new batch of eggs. Go for the heads first, the eggs second and Kor third. A word to the wise: Kor now has a double laser.

Finally, Kor will drop down to finish the job. Run in a circle around the hole. If you keep running, Kor’s triple laser will not hit you. When Kor fires that electrical pulse, jump it, turn and fire a few shots, then keep running and firing when able. Don’t let Kor get close, and you will win the fight.

What are some tips for beating the final boss?

Games Guru: Metal Kor starts out with one of the cliches of boss battles: kill the mini monsters while battling the big guy. In this case, shoot Kor a few times (five at most), then take out the hatchlings as they come out of their eggs. When he powers up to shoot you with his laser, duck and shoot him, then go after the hatchlings again. Repeat, and repeat, and repeat this. When you have taken away one-third of Kor’s health, he will change strategies.

Round two: This time, flying metal heads will attack from above, hatchlings will continue to attack on the ground and Kor will fire a double-barreled laser. You know what to do: Shoot the air force, crush the hatchlings and shoot at Kor whenever possible while avoiding his lasers.

Round three: This time Kor wants to do it himself. He will chase you. Run away. He will fire three lasers at you. Run away, turn back and shoot him. He will do a ground-rippling pulse attack. Jump it, run to a safe distance and shoot. The trick is to run, keep a safe distance and do lots of hit-and-run attacks. It will take a while, but this is the safest way to get the job done.

  1. use a red gun to take out the hollagraghic green krews. set up a place where they cant get you from behind, like the enterance to the top of the tower, when the real krew comes use the vulcan fury ( blue machine gun), that way you can get in as many hits in as possibe

    (the longer you take the worse, because you will have to step out of sactuary to get the right amo) basicaly, kill green krews collect remains( amo and health packs) shoot like crazy and knock krew out of the sky SHOOT’EM DOOOWWWN! heh heh

  8. well start playing them cuz there awezome

  9. I havent played Jak X or Daxter yet

  10. uh… jak X doesn’t really go with the Jak series… I mean the story line does but not the game play, i found it boring and if i want to play racing games ill play gt or nfs. not that the series is bad i am a fan and cant wait for Jak4 to be released, seeing new gun and land.

    also… bball.. by dvd do you mean movie, or what?

  11. Okay ren this is the 3rd level right? if it isnt tell me oh and simpson fan they made a dvd too on their journey! Ha- ok anway ren look at my comment below helping tony hawk. and if more questions i might not be back on for a while

  12. when escaping from the security tank you must be sure that you are not sleepy or tired because this mission needs only one thing and that is EXPERT timing!!!!!!!

    In Jak X I can not save without getting a infection on my memorycard how do you avoid this error?

  15. I Have Finished Jak 1, Jak 2 and Jak 3 But Not Jak X Or Daxter

  16. What is “Death”?

  17. The most powerful weapon in the game is the Vulcan Fury. Hold the shoot button down to fire a massive blanket of shrapnel to rip apart any Krimson Guards in the area.

    Killing Krimson Guards is a skill that is a brutal but nescisarry evil. You need to learn to have no mercy for any of your enemies, for they will defenately not show mercy for you.

    Once these skills are done with, you are the ultamite fighter.

    Go to Google to find cheats for the best possible idea of life in this “Haven” city.

    The cheat will give you all of the weapons and the Hoverboard at the very beggining.

  18. Trust me, if you have beaten every Jak game and ratchet game(including the tools of destruction one) like me, than you can defeat Kor easily. You can. Also, make sure you work on hijacking vehicles from krimson guards. They go after you, but you can destroy them and fly somewhere to hide(probably behind a building—be sure to get a large ship.) That will help later on in games like Jak 3. Perfect……

  19. OK I Will Do THat- Oh and tony hawk this is your 3rd mission right? oK YOU CAN tell when he is going to shoot when the center of it lights up. When it does go one way but then turn back the other way and run for your Life!!! And on the end part just stand in front of the eco and when he shoots it will blow up. I pretty sure three is 5 eco things. Finnaly when the tank shoots the last one threr is a door at the end, yuo will have 10 seconds to get out and when you get to the edge of the door, a cutscene will happen. Hope this helps TONY HAWK!!!! 🙂

  20. The last level actually wasn’t that hard. If you want hard, you should try Jak 3. That took me forever to beat, since I didn’t have a game guide.

  21. How do you beat the sicurety tank????????Pleas help Help HElp HELp HELP

  22. I’m actualy stuck on that pat to but you have to get away from the miners like a god 10 feet sna hen when the metal heads attack all yo have to do is take out the yellow gun and then blast them as they come to the miners. The only broblem with this stratigy is you have to wotch your back for the ones comming at you


    / \

    / \ Funny Monkey!!!

  23. i cant belive sombody posted somthing except i am going to come back in like a month and there will be like 2 posts. how do you get past the part wen u have 2 protect those stupid miners when the swarm of metal head things come at you?

    l NEED HELP !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ANYONE? PLEASE?

  24. jak beats ratchet no problem ?

    • Megacorptrooper // December 25, 2010 at 11:51 am // Reply

      In my humble opinion ratchet and clank 2 onwards completely beats Jak 2 and 3, Ratchet and clank 1, is about equal, and all R and C games beat jak 1 and TLF

    • to me they are both the same i would give jak a 10 and ratchet a 9 and a half jak is a longer and more of a awsome futuristic adventure game.

  25. idont like tis comment area nobody puts up stuff anymore

    it’s easy to beat Jak2 and 3 but the first one a little harder because you dont have your powers or guns. but i’m on the part where you got to power up the heat sheild again other than that no problem!!

  38. i beat all the jak games exeped for 2 im on the part were you defend the staidiom from meatle heads its hard. Anyways jak and daxter was a peice of cake the hardest part was when you had to defeet klaww. then jak 3 was easy way easy easyer than jak 2 it was easyer to beat i dont know why they did that.the hardest part on jak 3 was when you had to defnd spargus from those creatures but i did it jak 3 is so easy i beat it 4 times. now lets move on to jak x no hard parts realy.
