Mercenaries 2

Mercenaries 2 The World In Flames

Its war time again. In wars its thought that its fair to cheat to win too. Mercenaries 2 : The World in Flames will take you to a war torn world where you will be a mercenary looking forward to gain from the chaos. This highly explosive game is set in Venezuela and will give good work for your brains. Mercenaries 2 features all the latest gadgets and high-tech military and civilian stuff to grapple with. You are the mercenary. You set your own code of conduct. Just fulfill the terms on your contract. Cheat if you have to. As with every game released, Mercenaries 2 Cheats are also on the way!

Mercenaries 2: World in Flames

Mercenaries 2 Cheats, Hints, and Unlockables

Unlockable : Extra Costumes

You need extra costumes. To get them, complete level 3 bets at the PMC Villa with your friends. To get the best results bet maximum cash in the first two levels of the challenge. To make sure that you win, manually save the game and reload. Bet the least amount of money in the 3rd level. You have to be perfect to at this level to beat a challenge.

Spare Parts Unlockables

Get the spare parts for Eva, located in many parts of Venezuela, to unlock Achievements in Xbox 36. They are the orange boxes in the map.

Angreifer: 30 parts

Blackheart: 40 parts

Bogden Buggy: 60 parts

Scorcher: 50 parts

The Norse Wind: 20 parts

Triton Patrol Boat: 80 parts

Urban Commando: 100 parts

Vulcan 4x4: 70 parts

Hint : 100% Completion

Make sure that you finish all outpost missions before you go for the final story mission, that is Battle for Caracas / A.N. or China. Once the game is cleared, you can't start outpost missions again, which unlocks a faction's shop items.

Mercenaries 2 Walkthrough Part 1

Mercenaries 2 Hints For PS 3 And Xbox 360

Melee Bash:

If at all anything is hindering your way, let it be vehicles or any other objects, just melee bash it away.

Make Cash From Hostiles:

Hostile units drop cash and weapons when you kill them.

Some Other Hints

  • Use the handbrake to quickly slide and turn if you are using a fast vehicle.
  • With a helicopter pilot at the PMC you can extract fuel, ammunitions and cash bundles. But if those items belong to a faction, make sure they don't see you do it.
  • Add a mechanic to your PMC. And you can unlock and purchase vehicles directly. Some of these vehicles carry features which can only made available through the mechanic.

  • Find more spare parts and the mechanic can build special vehicles.

  • Recruit a jet pilot. Now you can make as many air stike as you want.
  • Capture High Value Targetsalive to double your cash.
  • Scour the world. Gather cash bundles, fuel tanks, ammunitions etc to use in your operations.

  • Don't hurt civilians. You lose money.

  • Use C4, RPG and anti-tank rockets if you can't inflict much damage on your targets.
  • Meet as many factions as possible, so that you can explore more areas of the map.

      u need to talk to him first, cheats are only obtainable through an online patch, then u need the activation code(cheat to turn on cheats), u get nuke by finishing the quests either for china or AN, HINTS: allied combat rifle is the best, fuel air rpg from china is best rpg

      WOW!!!! looking through this, I've seen about 20 people griping about this game being too hard, and as I said WOW!!! this game is extremely easy, and for the ones who beat the game and now wants to cheat more power to you, that's what cheats are for, and for those who keep griping, shut up and don't read it if it bothers you that bad

      I just wanted to offer a piece of advice to all ya'll trying to get the " Aces High" achievement. You either need to verify Agent Joyce(AN) from the China Mission or General Peng(China) from the Allies Mission. You do NOT need to get to 54/55 HVTs verified. If for some reason you did not get the achievement you need to restart because one HVT died.

      A great method to get tonnes of cash involves the winching challenge and two fuel tanks. During the challenge fly off and the nick two large fuel tanks, place one partly inside the yellow ring and the other on top leaving enough room between the edge of the tank and the ring for the tool box to sit. If placed correctly the fuel tanks should be exactly 7 meters tall so all you need to do is place the toolbox on top. The best part of this method is that the fuel tanks don't dissapear after the challenge is completed therefore you can get the rewards very quickly. Combine this with iCrakerfu's method for increasing the minimumbet and soon you'llberollingin cash.

      you need to first download the upgrade for buddha's cheats to work.

      At the start menu, when you connect to ea, there was a banner telling about cheats.

      Download it, then try Buddhas cheats.

      You guys need to stop worrying so much about your fucking cheats! The game is simple; the hardest parts being maybe some of the Level 3 challengews offered by some factions like the PLAV prototype boat. Cheats don't help you, they don't make the game fun; infact they fucking drain the life out of the game itself!

Achievements cannot be unlocked after this point.)

      Invincibility: UP, DOWN, LEFT, DOWN, LEFT, DOWN, RIGHT, RIGHT

      Geez, some of you are complete idiots.

      But anyway... I don't really need cheats for the main storyline of the game. It would be nice to have cheats for the level 3 target practice challenges at the PMC, though. I mean, I know they're all possible without cheats, but it's a major pain in the ***, sort of like earning all golds in the license tests in the Gran Turismo games -- requires perfect timing and a whole lot of patience.

      As for the rest of the game... well, many people have already mentioned the level 3 winching challenge for earning tons of money. The challenge is quite simple, even without using the stadium exploit. And somebody else already mentioned how to steal oil, etc., from friendly factions without getting reported (get a heli, winch it out of faction sight, set it down and call for a resource pickup). I should also mention that you can pretty much get away with hijacking vehicles from friendly factions without getting reported -- this can come in handy if you're looking for a helicopter for quick transport.

      As for the spare parts, I do believe you need to find all 100 in order to get 100% game completion. I could be wrong, though. On my game, I seem to have triggered a glitch, however, that allows me to pick up the same spare parts multiple times simply by flying over the spare part locations in a helicopter. I don't know how I managed to trigger that, but I'm not complaining -- I have almost 80/100 spare parts collected, even though I only physically collected about 35 or so.

      One other thing that would come in handy is a list of all the vehicles, and the particular button combinations needed to hijack them. It's not so bad when hijacking some vehicles, but others can give you problems if you don't successfully hijack them the first time (tanks sometimes run you over, shoot you with their cannons, etc.)... and attempting to hijack a helicopter can be damn near suicidal if you aren't successful (depending on the heli's altitude when you are kicked back to the ground). I had most of the early ones memorized, but now that I'm dealing with China and the AN, there are a lot more vehicles to figure out (and some of the Chinese tanks, in particular, give me all kinds of hell when I have to mash the B button repeatedly -- I guess I'm not doing it fast enough, or something, because it usually takes 2 or 3 tries before I'm successful).

      Oh yeah, and somebody asked how do you hijack a heli, like why the grapple option wasn't coming up... the answer is, you can only grapple from so far away. If the helicopter is too high up, or keeps backing away from you, you won't be able to grapple it. The best thing to do is to hide behind something and lure the helicopter closer... then quickly dart out, get the copter in your sight, and hit the Y button (xbox) before it manages to back away again.

      Another glitch I seem to have noticed is, in certain areas -- particularly after taking over an outpost (but before actually entering the outpost) -- that airstrikes and bombing run pickups seem to respawn if you move a far enough distance away, and then back to them. Sometimes they respawn as different strike types, too, so it pays to do this a number of times to build up your airstrike supply. This doesn't work everywhere, though, and it will not work any more once the other faction has taken over and converted all of the airstrike pickups into fuel tanks.

      Ah, yes, and another tip: when doing some of the more difficult side missions for the different factions, it may benefit you to go through and clear out any heavy opposition before getting in the vehicle that will trigger the mission timer. Like on some of the Pirate transport missions, you will get attacked by helicopters armed with anti-tank missiles that will destroy your vehicle in one shot -- it pays to take out these helis before getting in the transport truck. Same for the PLAV boat prototype mission -- between the minefields, enemy boats, and RPG-toting soldiers on the shores, level 3 might be too much to handle unless you go through (with a different vehicle) and clear out the bulk of your opposition before jumping in the boat. The boat is relatively fragile, and you've got a long way to travel while managing to keep it in one piece.

      All in all, this is a fairly good game. Completely destructable environments, lots of different things to do and vehicles to drive, tons of different weapons and airstrikes to play with, etc. A.I. is not phenomenal, but I find it is fairly decent for a game of this type. Sure, there are glitches, but not all of them are bad glitches. Many of them work out in your favor (like when I was doing one of the Pirates' transport missions, and for some reason the VZ guys all decided not to shoot at me any more). But all minor complaints aside, I thoroughly enjoy this game. I mean, what could be more satisfying than the opportunity to virtually level an entire South American country, just for the hell of it? The blinding explosions and seeing massive buildings crumble are reasons enough to play this game, if nothing else.
