Additionally, to increase your Good or Bad Cop rating easily, replay a stealth mission and choose your attack accordingly.

  • Defeating General Kim

    When fighting General Kim, use a low kick followed by a block or another kick. When he is stunned, press X, B, A, Y to perform a super attack which will do more damage than a normal grapple. It is possible to roll through the railing once it is broken.
