  • Play as Agent 4 from Perfect Dark

    Have a saved game file from Perfect Dark on your hard drive. Then, create a saved game file from Crackdown 2 on your hard drive. Play Perfect Dark from Xbox Live Arcade again, and it will detect the Crackdown 2 saved game file. Agent 4 will now be playable in the Combat Simulator multiplayer modes.

  • Infinite ammunition

    Find a mounted turret, and begin using it. Have a friend punch or kick you off of the turret while you are shooting. You should now have unlimited gun and grenade ammunition.

  • Easy Vehicle Stunt Rings

    Have two players in online Co-op mode. Have one player in a helicopter from the Agency Tower and the other player in an Agency Supercar or Cruiser. Have both players meet at the Stunt Ring. Equip the Mag grenades, and attach one to the bottom of the helicopter and another one to the roof of the car. Have the helicopter fly the car through a stunt ring. Note: Avoid the explosion from the Mag grenades. Repeat this as many times as desired.

  • Easy Agility Orbs

    Fly a helicopter from the Agency Tower high above the Agility Orb. Then, jump out of the helicopter, and drop down onto the Orb. Note: You must be at a low enough altitude to survive or have the Glide suit. The Orb will not start moving until you are very close to it.

    Use the following trick to easily get Level 5 Agility Orb on top of buildings, even when you are Level 1. Have a high Agility level player in online Co-op mode climb near the top of a high building with a Level 5 Agility Orb on it. At the edge of the building, have the player throw a magnetic lock (Mag) to where it is still on the vertical side of the building. Then, have the player jump or glide down and wait for you to climb on top of a nearby car. Next, have the player throw the other Mag on top of the same car. The car should be pulled up to the top of the building, allowing you to collect the Orb.

  • Finding Orbs

    While playing the game, press Up to get a quick view of nearby Orbs on the mini-map. This can be repeated again after a few seconds.

    Have Level 4 Agility or higher, then get a helicopter from the Agency Tower, and fly it as high as possible. Click and hold the Left Analog-stick to activate its jets to force the mini-map to zoom out as it moves faster. Then, tap Up to begin scanning for Orbs.

    Use the following trick to find all the non-Renegade Orbs quicker. While playing the game, press Start, then quickly press B, Up, and look at your mini-map. It will be zoomed out, and it will also make the Orb ping (Up) work in a much greater range. It will display more Orbs around you, and in a bigger area, allowing you to find the Orbs quicker as long as they are not Renegade Orbs.

  • Finding helicopters

    Spawn on the island northeast of the Agency Island. Go to the middle of it, and climb the highest tower there. Once you reach the middle level (with the free standing balconies), you will find a helicopter with no weapons.

    Once you have Level 5 Agility, spawn at the Agency Island, and climb up the building to the right of the bridge. Look straight ahead after climbing to see a helipad with four helicopters on it. The helicopter closer to the Agency Tower, and across from that, has rockets. The other two have machine guns.

  • Quacker grenades

    Go to the carnival on the island southwest of the Agency Tower on the southern tip of the island. Look for the "Chucks Ducks 2" booth after you clear out the cell stronghold there. Inside the booth are Quacker grenades (exploding rubber sticky ducks) behind the counter.

    Alternately, have a Facebook account that has been previously logged into from your Xbox 360. Then, log onto Facebook on a computer, and play the "Chuck's Ducks 2" mini-game. Collect twenty ducks in Puzzle mode, then save them from the hunters in the second part of the mini-game. If done correctly, the mini-game will notify you that you have ducks waiting for you in Crackdown 2. Then, play Crackdown 2, and spawn near the Carnival in Green Bay South. You can now exchange a grenade for a Quacker grenade at the Chuck's Ducks 2 booth in the center of the carnival. Take that grenade back to any drop zone to have the option to select the Quacker grenades whenever you spawn.

  • Reloading mounted turret

    To reload a mounted turret that you took from its stationary post (requires Level 3 Strength), simply find the post, and replace the turret. Pick it up again for full ammunition.

  • Easy "City Glider" achievement

  • Easy "Pebble Dash" achievement

    Note: It is recommended that you have Level 5 Agility so you can use the Wingsuit. Spawn at the Agency Tower, then move to the right, and look for a large cylindrical pipe directly in front of the Agency Holding Pens building. It is very tall and the only one that has an opening at the top. Jump down, and use the Wingsuit's glide ability to slow your descent. Once you reach the bottom, you will be in a small cave with a huge toilet with rubber ducks and beach balls. If you survived the fall, you will also get the "Pebble Dash" achievement.

  • Easy "Scarface" achievement

    Once you have Level 5 Agility, go to the Agency Tower. Reach the helipad, and get the helicopter with machine guns. Take the helicopter to a freak infested area, and then start shooting at the groups to get the "Scarface" achievement. -From: Sean Kettler

  • Easy "Yippee-Kai-Yay" achievement

    Have two players in online Co-op mode. Have one player spawn the SUV and the other player get the helicopter. Have the player in the helicopter hover low to the ground, and let the player with the SUV jump it into the body of the helicopter to get the "Yippee-Kai-Yay" achievement. Then, have the players switch so both players get the achievement.

    Have the Agency SUV, then find an Agency supply drop point. Locate a small car (no trucks or vans), and drive the car to the Agency supply drop point. Park it so the driver's side door is towards the SUV. Press Back, and store that vehicle. Get into the SUV, and wait for the helicopter to pick it up. Once it gets low to the ground to pick it up, drive towards it, and press B to jump into the helicopter to get the "Yippee-Kai-Yay" achievement.
