Dead Or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball

Strategy Guide

Advertisement

  • See through swimsuit

    Play as a girl with the Gimlet (Helena), Emu (Leifang), Carnelian (Christie) or another suit with a transparent part. Also wear a transparent visor. Go to the pool and allow your girl to lay on the chair until the menu disappears. Move the camera so that you are looking at the girl's body through the visor. The swimsuit will not be visible through the visor, but the girl's skin will. Small stars can be seen censoring her body. Each girl's stars appears different.

  • Easy money

    Note: This trick requires Dead Or Alive 3. Play Dead Or Alive 3 and select a character that also appears in Dead Or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball in survival mode. The more wins you have in survival mode, the more money you will start with in Dead Or Alive: Xtreme Beach Volleyball. For instance, if you have 50 wins, you will start with $50,000. If you have 100 wins, you will start with $100,000.

    Start the game with any character. The first game of volleyball is the easiest. Make sure you choose "Yes" when Lisa offers to show you around the island. Play the hopping game until you reach the first volleyball match. Play the match, making sure you time your spikes and your blocks perfectly to add extra points. Once you win, wait until the next day at the hotel. Choose "Leave Tomorrow" and start the game again with the same character. Repeat the same steps to get 80,000 to 149,000 credits every time.

    Winning a volleyball game 7 to 0 will earn you 150,000 credits. To ensure you never miss, only use the underhand serve as it is guaranteed to go in. This is a great way to earn money quickly, but requires a lot of effort and a good partner.

    Use the following trick to win money without winning points. Play as a character that has over one star for her power. While playing volleyball in story mode, have your partner set you up for a spike, wait until the ball is directly above your head, then aim straight for an opponent (preferably the one that is the furthest away). Hit it to the opponent, pressing Attack firmly. If you manage to make then struggle, your partner will award you 1,000 points, and you can usually finish the point off after this spike, or you can reset yourself to perform the spike as many times as desired.

    When you do not have a partner, play the hopping game or go to the casino.

    In a volleyball match, the less points the opposing team scores, the more money you will end up getting.

  • Extra items

    Give a lot of gifts to one character and complete that game. Start a new game on that saved game file and choose to play as the character that received the gifts in the previous game. Those items will be available in your inventory in the new game.

  • Bonus songs

    Successfully complete the game and save. Resume the game with the same saved game file to have two additional songs, "How Crazy Are You?" by Meja and "Is This Love?" by Bob Marley selectable under the Radio Station.

  • Swimsuits in exhibition mode

    Earn or buy swimsuits in story mode (Zack's Island). The swimsuits that you acquire in that mode will also be available in exhibition mode.

  • Disable commentary

    Enter the options menu, then change Zack's language to Japanese.

  • Ending bonus

    Successfully complete the game. When you start a new game, you can immediately advance to the end. Select the "Leave Tomorrow" option at the hotel or pool menu to skip to the ending.

  • Ending sequence

    Wait for the credits to end to see a extra FMV sequence featuring Zack and the remains of his island.

  • Videos

    The more items you buy, the more videos Zack sends you. If you play forever and never by anything, not a single video will be sent to you. Try to collect as many items, swimsuits, etc. as possible. The Ninja Gaiden trailer is the eight movie to come from Zack.

  • Soundtrack change

    You can change the music playing at anytime by pressing Black (advance to next track) or White (repeat current track).

  • Ayane with Mermaid suit

    Wait until you get the Mermaid suit from Zack.

  • Ayane with Raccoon suit

    Wait until you get the Raccoon suit from Zack.

  • Christie with cat ears

    There is no way to buy the cat ears for Christie at the accessory shop. The only way to get them is to buy (or wait for Zack to send it to you) the "Panther" one piece bikini. The swimsuit has a panther tail, and once equipped to Christie, she will automatically wear cat ears.

  • Hitomi with Cheerleading suit

    Buy it in the store with Hitomi. There are different versions of it.

  • Hitomi with cat ears

    There are two ways to get cat ears with Hitomi. You can either buy them at the accessory shop or wait for Zack to send them to you. You will have to play with Hitomi for at least two vacations before they appear in the shop or Zack gives them.

  • Kasumi with army hat and gear

    To get an army hat and two canteens with Kasumi, go to the sport shop. It probably will not be there until after the first day. Look for the Salvia swimsuit. It costs 330,000 credits. When you purchase the bikini, you will not see the hat and canteens until you put it on Kasumi. The only way to get the army hat and canteens is with Kasumi, and they will never be in the accessory shop. Zack will never send you the Salvia swimsuit, as well as any other character, since Kasumi is the only character that can get it. You can send the Salvia to the other girls, but most of them will throw it away.

  • Leifang wearing almost nothing

    In order to see the most of Leifang's skin wait until after the fourth day for the Oreial swimsuit. It barely covers her skin, but costs a lot of money.

  • Leifang with Panda suit

    Wait until Zack gives you the Panda suit. It has panda ears.

  • Leifang with phoenix

    If you wait long enough, Zack will give you the Phoenix.

  • Lisa with leopard ears

    Allow Zack to get you the leopard suit.

  • Tina with rabbit or cat ears

    There is no way to purchase cat or rabbit ears in the accessory shop with Tina, and Zack will never give them to you as a gift. To get them, go to the Sport Shop and buy the Arnob one piece swimsuit. Note: It is not cheap. When you play in a volleyball (or hopping) game with Tina, she will be wearing rabbit ears.

  • Tina with Black Cat suit

    Wait for Zack to give you the Black Cat suit. It has cat ears.

  • Getting Tina as your first partner

    Use the following trick to get Tina as your partner at the start of the game instead of Lisa. Tina is probably one of the most difficult characters to get as your partner besides Christie. Start the game as Lisa. Tina will now be in the chair at the start of the game instead of Lisa. Note: Tina will give you an expensive present every night (for example, swimsuits that only she can get or rare accessories) as long as you send her a blue gift each night.

  • Keeping on good terms with your partner

    Give your partner their favorite gift in color, type, hobby, or their nationality (one or two gifts). When you wake up in the morning, check the music notes around their head. If only one music note floats up, you are not doing well with your partner. If it is two music notes, then their enthusiasm is pretty good. Three music notes indicates that both of you are getting along very well.

  • Selecting a partner

    Choose your partners wisely. Try to partner up with girls that have a lot of power; for example, Tina or Hitomi. Then, when you are receiving the ball during game play, try to have them make the first hit upon return, in which case you set them up for a spike using B. Very often, the other players, even if they are blocking, will be knocked down by their enormous spikes.

  • Moving your partner

    If you do not like the position in which your partner is standing during a match, you can move them by using the Right Analog-stick.

  • Managing your items

    While in any shop, choose the item that you are interested in. Press X and the girl will tell you if she has seen that item before. This will help you determine if you have the item in your inventory. Keep in mind that if you have given another girl the item, she will say she has seen that item before. This hint would probably work better for someone who is starting the game from the beginning. However, it is useful when trying to fill your girl's inventory.

  • Good serve

    In order to receive 1000 points for each serve, make sure that your calibration is adjusted so that it is about 30% (one third of the way from the left of the bar), then press A firmly to throw the ball in the air. Press A firmly again just before the player is about to make contact with the ball. This is very helpful during a game, as you can still get some points even if you lose your match.

  • Scoring

    When your partner sets you up for a spike, there is an easier way to score. Hold Left Analog-stick Left to make the ball fly closer to the net, so it is harder for the other team to recover. If they try to block your spike, use the same method only use Tap and they will almost never get it.

  • Toss wisely

    While playing the a volleyball game, it is often useful to toss the ball to your partner who may spike it and score a point. However, if you toss the ball to your partner while she is back half way or more from the net, she may try and spike the ball hard and hit the net, causing the other team to get a point.

  • Control ball during spike

    Press Left during the spike to spike it short; Right to spike it deep; Up to spike it high (to the top of the screen); or Down to spike it low (to the bottom of the screen). You can do this in a combo (for example, press Down/Right to spike it low and deep.

  • Preventing cheap shots

    When you are playing a match, and the opposing team spikes the ball so hard that your player receives the ball but hits the ground and the ball flies back over the net, about 90% of the time the opposing team is going to spike that ball at where you are laying. Use the Right Analog-stick to move your partner to the spot where you were standing, so they can bounce it to you while you are getting up, or hit the ball back over the net.

  • Finding an easy match

    When looking at the selectable courses, look at the profiles of the two characters you are playing against. They seem to follow the same ones from Exhibition mode, where if her head is turned slightly, it indicates that she is less willing to play with the person she is paired with. This often leads to a lot of missed volleys and spikes on their part, making for an easier match and a chance to win more money.

  • Detecting bad emotions on the court

    During the first few matches with a new teammate, she will compliment you on a good serve or spike. The moment your partner stops giving you kudos, it is time to cheer her up as best as possible. If it is someone you can do without, this is not that important, but otherwise you will need to buy your friend something she will really like to stay in good terms with her. If none of the shops have exactly what you want, go to the Sports Shop and buy a moderately expensive swimsuit. That usually does the trick and usually there is something that she really likes in the shops the next day. Remember, when the two of you break up she will not accept any more gifts from you until the vacation's over.

  • Force replay

    Hold L immediately after someone scores.

  • Lock view

    When viewing a "Gravure" movie or another camera-controlled angle, click the Right Analog-stick to lock and unlock the desired angle. Click the Left Analog-stick to lock the view controlled by it in its current position. Zoom to a desired magnification then press X to lock it at that setting.

  • Give any girl a swimsuit

    Buy the gift, then wait until you get to your hotel. Give them the gift, then immediately choose "Leave Tomorrow". Then, continue your previous game as the person you gave the swimsuit to. It will automatically be in your inventory.

  • Give any girl the Venus swimsuit

    Play as Lisa and win about 1,500,000 credits playing volleyball. Buy the Venus swimsuit then start a new game. Lavish the desired character with gifts. After the character in question starts to give you a lot of gifts in the hotel, lay the Venus swimsuit on her in the morning. Next, buy her a couple more gifts -- one that she will really like and one that she will dislike. Start a new game with the character you gave the Venus swimsuit to, and it should be in their inventory.

    Play the game as Lisa and earn 1,000,000 credits. As you are earning the money, start giving the person you desire gifts that she really likes. Wait until the music notes start to move rapidly. Once you have enough to buy the Venus, wait until evening to give her the swimsuit. She has to open it in front of you.

  • Increasing your swimsuit inventory

    Since any single character can only buy certain swim suits, it can become somewhat tedious to obtain every outfit. In order to speed things up a little, team up with someone you know has a costume you would want, or one that your teammate does not have yet. Once you become better friends, anything you give her as a gift, in this case a swimsuit, she will keep. The key is to make sure she is at least somewhat happy with your performance on the court. After you give your teammate an outfit, it is most likely you will get one as thanks when you return to your room the next evening.

  • Food

    If your character is not performing very well, take them to get some juice or food to eat. Afterwards, do the pool hopping game to increase their response and enthusiasm.

  • Keeping items fresh

    Certain items purchased from the Accessory Shop or Zack Of All Trades can spoil or dry out if held too long. The best time to give gifts is back at the hotel since you can give something to everyone without time passing. If you are going to buy something that could go bad, such as a favorite food, it is best to buy it during the evening before the last match of the day so it will not spoil until the next morning. This is also useful when you need to put these things in the collection, which can only be transferred from the items section at the hotel.

  • Hopping game views

    While playing the hopping game, stop your girl on any float and watch her try to keep her balance. She will not fall off. This gives you another option to watch her with the two toggles and the R zoom. Use L and set the camera, click down on the toggle to lock the view, then do the same with the right toggle. Press R to zoom and L to change the camera angle.

  • Casino action

    Do not play for too long. It seems you will get on a losing streak if you play over fifteen times in roulette, twenty five times in poker and blackjack, and thirty times on the slots. However, some days are better than others. You can win the most money in roulette.

  • Win big at roulette

    Save about 1,000,000 credits. Then, go to the casino and set your chips to 10,000 credits. Play roulette and put all the chips you can on either the red or black panel that has no numbers. The red or black panel is the row closest to you. You will have a 50% chance of winning.

    Play with 10,000 credit chips and select roulette. Bet the maximum amount of money on a Black or Red table. Watch the ball as it spins. If the ball lands in the color you did not choose, quickly turn off the Xbox off. This will stop your lost money from being recorded. When you continue, you will start at night before the Hotel. Play roulette again. If the ball lands on the color you selected, leave the casino and "Go to bed" so that your winnings are saved.
