Throw a remote mine on an enemy. If it hits, they will
scream and run around instead of shooting you. Let them run around
and eventually they will try to find guards. When they do, detonate
the bomb to get two or more frags for one.
Take out your pistol with the silencer when you see a guard. Press
[R1] as fast as possible until the guard is dead.
Hold [Up] while shooting.
Secondary weapon function
When you have a weapon out, press [R2] and it
will usually change something on the gun.
Take out a rocket launcher then hold [R2] + [Up]. You
will hear a beeping sound. When it stops, a red target will appear.
When low on energy, kill worker doctors and even Red
Faction men to pick up more health and Environment Suits.
When Hendrix first starts talking to you, go down the catwalk
away from the APC. There should be a tunnel that leads to a miner
and guard fighting. Shoot that guard then shoot the one at the
elevator. Stand in front of the elevator and face the wall behind
it. Look up slightly to see a hole. Enter the hole and at the
end is a pond or lake. At the bottom of the pond is a miner's
body, health, and an Environment Suit.
Badlands: Bottom of level
In this level, there are natural bridges over a giant
pit which if you fall, you will usually die. Use the following
trick to get to the bottom without dying. This will be difficult
if you have more than two bots. It is recommended that you try
this alone first. Find the rocket launcher that is next to a bridge.
Go on the bridge and face the flat wall that leads to the bottom.
At a 45 degree angle, start blowing holes downwards until you
have almost reached the bottom. You now have to jump and try to
make it into the first hole you created. .You will lose some health
here from the fall. Once you are there, go backwards out of the
hole and slowly drop down to the next hole. Repeat this pattern
until you get to the bottom. Save at least 1 rocket so you can
kill yourself -- the bots will not be able to get to you. This
is difficult to do when playing against bots because of them shooting
at you. Set the timer to 30 minutes. Take a lot of weapons such
as the Rail Driver and the Sniper Rifle with you. Start blowing
up the natural bridges from the bottom. Do not do it completely,
but just enough to watch all the bots plunge to their deaths.
Feeding Area: Reach next level
When walking through the Feeding Area, go to the edge
of the cliff. Look down and you will see ice. You will not be
able to jump down. However, blow another hole in the ice closest
to the edge, and then jump off. You will be in the water and in
the next level.
Installation XJ5: Hidden pit
In the deathmatch Installation XJ5, you can get outside
to the pit. Grab the rocket launcher and jump down, then turn
left. Note the archway above. Blast a hole in the wall below the
doorway and start building a tunnel straight to the open window.
Just going to the archway above and blasting around the window
does not work due to an invisible wall. Once you make the tunnel
all the way through, you can look down into the pit below, If
you drop down, you will always die. Turn to the left or right
and blast a hole big enough to jump into (make the hole on the
outside of the wall). Jump into the hole, then make another hole
directly in front of you but down slightly. Now that you have
made another hole, jump into it. Make sure the hole is not too
far down, or you will die from the fall. Repeat this process until
you have reached the bottom of the pit. Note: It is next to impossible
to get back up once you are down there.
Lobby: Secret roof area
Go to the second level of the Lobby multi-player level
and grab the rocket launcher. Walk over to the edge of the balcony
and start shooting up towards the wall facing the lobby itself.
After enough shots you will dig a tunnel to the roof. Walk through
and jump right up. You can shoot out the glass and snipe people
down on the second level. There also is a Fusion Rocket Launcher
that you can grab.
Mercs Base: Entering
After the crash site, you will follow a system of tunnels
and ridges filled with enemies (most with heavy machine guns,
some with fusion rockets and rail drivers). When you meet the
Red Faction miner in the caves, he will say that he will watch
your back. At this time you will follow a tall tunnel to a bridge
-- you do not want to be on the bridge. Between the miner and
the bridge is a turn off that leads to a catwalk going over the
bridge. Kill the two gaurds and follow the catwalk until it stops
at a hole in the wall. Jump from the catwalk into the hole and
follow it until you get the grenades. Use them to kill the turrets
and the fusion rocket carrying guard on the other side of the
large rock by the grenades. This saves time and health you would
have spent trying to fight the guard and the turrets.
Roof: Secret area
Get up to the roof easily by looking for the side with
a slant. On the second level, shoot about three to four shots
to the wall next to the slant. Once on the roof, find the area
with the glass. Get to the back wall so you are looking at the
glass, where it slants, then run at it. As soon as you hit the
slant, jump. This is difficult to accomplish. However, when you
are up, you can jump from the top to the small bridge-like place
on the side. Make sure you do not stand on the glass to avoid
someone shooting it and causing you to fall. From this height
you will lose about sixty health from dropping off.
Waste Disposal: Easy kills
In multi-player mode on the Waste Disposal level, swim
down under the platform to find a fusion rocket. You can also
use mines to blow holes under the doors into the hallway. When
bots come by, they will fall into the water for an easy kill.
Multi-player mode: Bottleneck sniper
This trick works very well against bots and players
alike. For example, in the DM level "XJ5", there is
the grated walkway where the rail driver is on the upper floor.
Go down the other end (the one close to the hallway by the Envirosuit
armor), and blow a hole in the floor near the grate large enough
to get in and duck down inside. Be careful -- if you do it too
close to the grated catwalk, then it will also break part of the
bottleneck off and expose you from the outer wall, being that
it was blown out from the blast. From here, you can use any type
of bullet-using weapon with ease. The rail driver is recommended,
as it will allow you to duck down in the hole, giving you cover
from most of the players/bots, but allowing you to fire at them
through the floor/ceiling. This trick also works very well when
you back yourself up against an indestructable wall, so you have
a full peripheral view of 180 degrees all around, with no danger
of being back attacked.

Secret fishing holes
When you first start a new game, go to the first hole
on your left and go to the end of it. There will be a small hole
where you will be able to see into. Go forward in the game and
get a rocket launcher or mines and return. You will be able to
get in the hole, swim, and shoot the fish down inside.
Go out over the pit where there is a group of guards and the tank
that will shoot at you if you do not blow up the bridge. Go down
the tunnel and it will lead to a open area, where after you kill
all the guards, an elevator will come down. Immediately above
the elevator is hole that is difficult to see. Go left of the
elevator, go up the hill, and go into the hole. It will lead you
around until you get to a large open room with a lot of water
with fish, bats flying around the roof, plants on the wall, and
a dead miner at the bottom (where there will also be Extra Life
and Extra Body Armor).
Easy APC convoy destruction before
Equip remote mines or a rocket launcher. Then, use
heat seeking mode to lock on to the turret. Fire away and blast
the turret easily. Note: If you are low on rockets and have remote
mines, then use them on ceiling turrets.
Masako has some nasty weapons and a shield. The only
weapon that can defeat her is the powerful assault rifle. She
first attacks with a ship firing rockets and machine guns. Equip
the laser to blow it up in one shot. Then Masako herself appears
with a shield, just like Capek. However, she uses a precision
rifle very fast. Keep moving and destroy her shield with your
rifle. Then, keep your rifle armed to kill her. Take her Precision
Rounds after she has been defeated.
Try to get higher than her. Hit her with three Fusion Rockets
to disable her shield. After her shield is no longer working,
she will hide under a ledge. Use a Rail Driver to her head for
a easy kill.
Secret sub bay
When you first get the sub, take it down through the
tunnel until you exit into the cavern. Look along the wall to
your left to find a small crack, that at the correct angle, you
can see another tunnel. Yse your torpedoes and break apart the
wall around the crack. You will now be able to follow a tunnel
that leads to a cave (with bones lying on the ground), and a brand
new sub with full health and full ammunition sitting in the middle
of a small pond.
Finding secret areas
Every time you see markings on the wall (for example,
posters and paint) in multi-player mode, use something explosive
on it. It will lead to a secret area.
