When you need a bone, go to a dead partially eaten body to get one. Also, if you run out of spears, piles of bone will not run out and do just as much damage.
More effective spears and bones
Spears and bones are more effective when lit on fire.
Even though the machine gun is best against some animals, the most effective weapon is the spear. Your friends always have spears and you can find them everywhere in the ground. If you want it to be stronger, light it on fire.
Killing smaller dinosaurs
Use the following trick to kill a smaller dinosaur, such as the Velociraptor, easily. Throw a spear directly in its neck or head. Note: The spear does not need to be on fire.
Killing V-Rex as Kong
It may be difficult to get some time when the Rexes are not attacking you. However, the very first time you fight the Rexes, there is a ledge which you can climb onto so they cannot attack. However, once you are up there, you will be attacked by the flying dinosaurs. They are easy to defeat. Once you are up there, go into fury mode by repeatedly tapping [Y] until he smacks the ground. Once in fury mode, attack the Rexes one at a time. After you have hit one of them three times with [A], they will be temporarily knocked out. You can then perform a finishing move by repeatedly tapping [X] or [A]. If done correctly, Kong will snap the Rex's jaw in two or throw it.
Defeating the V Rex with Kong
Go to the stairs, then walk about halfway. Wait until the V-Rex arrives, then keep hitting it
First, kill bats to get his attention. If that does not work, throw spears then run around the middle wall and throw spears. Next, run around, keep throwing spears, then run through the door.
You cannot kill T. Rexes when you are a human. The one exception is the smaller version of a Rex in The Cave mission. Other than that, all your guns and spears can do is distract the Rex to come after you instead of your comrades. In most missions you must have the Rex come after you so that your comrades can open a door or complete an objective of some sort. Do not waste all your ammunition on a Rex. A few rounds of fire should be enough to distract it.
To The Lair
Get past the part where you cross the river and move up the building killing the flying dinosaurs. Afterwards swim to stairs. When you walk up them, there will be spears and a big black rapters like the one in the Venatosaurus level. You will be killing the first one, Kill it, but do not kill the second one. It will eventually end up killing itself. Quickly make your way to the building that has a thing on the top filled with fire. The second one will probably be out by then. Get up to the thing full of fire. Light a spear on fire. Wait for a good opportunity, then throw the fire spear and hit the raptor. Remain out of sight until the raptor decides to go to the cave where the ammo drop is located. As soon as the raptor walks into the bushes, they will start burning because of the fire spear. The fire will kill the dinosaur. This also clears your path, as the bushes blocked the route to the lever and ammo drop.
On The Raft: Killing natives easily
When you get to the point where there are natives on top of a bridge throwing spears at you, you can easily destroy them by picking up a spear, lighting it on fire, then throwing it at the supports. You can also throw the spear at the bushes surrounding the bridge.
Glitch: Get under the lava
In the chapter after "Call Kong," there is a location where you will reach a column in a pit of lava. If you stand on the column, it starts to sink. If you jump off, you will fall in the lava. However if you ride it down using the following technique, you can get safely beneath the lava. If you do not do anything, you will die. However, if you keep pressing [A], he does not go down while he is attacking. Keep attacking until the tree is under the lava, then stop. There are three parts to this glitch. The first part is where you are on the column and can turn around with a strange landscape behind you. The second part is after you jump off and start falling, twitching and lifting your arm. The twitching eventually stops, but the lifting of the arm does not. The third part is when you press [A], then you change position. There is nothing you can do after that.
