If you capture an enemy Wanzer at the end of a battle, keep it. This way, if you lose a Wanzer in your next battle, you have a spare Wanzer to replace it. Besides, you do not have to replace any destroyed parts on a captured Wanzer; they are automatically repaired for you. Just make sure that you add some weapons to it, because your only attack on a captured Wanzer is the HADRBLOW, which is the weakest.
|Capturing Enemy Wanzers|
To capture an enemy Wanzer, make him surrender. Any Wanzers that surrendered before the stage is cleared will become yours. You can tell if a Wanzer has surrendered by looking at its color. If it is gray, and has a white flag on top of it, it has surrendered. This does not work, however, for tanks, jeeps, etc., as you can not store them.
Helicopters are big, but you have a greater chance of hitting them with a machine gun or shotgun than any other ranged weapon. Missiles, however, can usually hit a helicopter if it is almost out of missile range.
A grenade launcher does not strike one square; it strikes several, depending on which type you have. Make sure "friendly" units are at least two squares from the damage area to prevent a "friendly fire" situation.
|Keep Battle Skills|
Successfully complete Emma's or Alisa's story line. Save the game after the credits have completed. Load the saved game at the title screen to play either story line again with all previously learned Battle Skills.
|Kill Ejected Enemy Pilots Easier|
Attack an ejected pilot with a machine gun, shotgun or flamethrower. Although rifles, missiles, and melee weapons do much more damage, you will often miss completely because only one shot is fired. However, a machinegun and shotgun will fire multiple times, and the flamethrowers can attack a target at least four times.
|Restart A Battle|
Save the game as soon as you start a battle. If you lose, you can reload the save from the beginning of the fight and try a different strategy. This also prevents you from losing a Wanzer that you want to keep.
The "split point" in the game is so close to the start that gamers could play the same story and never know what they did wrong. It occurs when you finish the Wanzer testing. Royogo will ask you if you want to deliver Construction Wanzers with him. If you go with him you will get Emma's story. If you do not go with him you will get Alisa's story.
