Spark's Training Construct

  • Start a new game as who you want to play Spark's Training Construct as Niobe or Ghost. Wait for all the FMV sequences to finish and save your game when prompted by selecting "Yes". Exit back to the main title screen, with the "Load Game", "New Game", "Options", and "Hacking" options. Select "Hacking". Load the saved game that was just saved. When asked to press a key, do so to clean the system. Your should now be at the "A:\" prompt. Type "CHEAT" followed by a space, then "13D2C77F" Your screen should have "A:\CHEAT 13D2C77F" displayed. Press "Enter". A message stating that you have unlocked a bonus level will appear. This actually refers to Spark's Training Construct. Exit hacking by going to "Exit" in the command list and select "Y" (for yes) and pressing "Enter". Save your progress by answering "Yes", then go to "Load game" at the main menu. Look for "Spark's Training Construct" and go there. You can also indicated that it should be the game you just saved; load this. The game will bring up levels you completed. Move to the right until "Spark's Training Construct" appears in view and load it. If prompted, insert the next game disc. You should now be in the hallway full of doors after it loads. Move forward and go to the second red door you see on your right. Open it and you will now be in a gym where training takes place. Go forward until you see buttons on the wall. Press the left button first. Training will start. Grab all the weapons behind you and blast your enemies.

  • Once inside the "shooting range," you can participate in a test of skills. Press the red button and get ready. You will start out behind one of the tables and are told that you are caged in and have to fight. SWAT Agents will start running from the back of the room in your area. If they get up to the 10 ft. mark, youwill lose. Turn around, grab all the guns you can and take them out. If you get more than twenty, it unlocks the other red door in the hallway. This is where you can engage in hand to hand combat with an infinite supply of SWAT. This is an excellent opportunity to harness your fighting skills and find new moves.

  • In the shooting range in Sparks' Training Construct, look at the hanging targets in first person view. Shoot them until your green crosshairs turn red. Do this to all the targets to open up the other training mode in the same room. You can now push the button on the right. In this mode, you try to shoot the floor out from under people walking across platforms. You will fail if they make it to the other side.

  • You can only open the red doors. During the start only one will be open. Press the red button on the far wall and you will appear before a table. Grab the guns behind you and stop the SWAT members before they reach the 10 foot mark. Note: Use the sniper rifle, and if they get too close, try the shotgun. Shoot the floor of the runners, and when the walkers approach the door quickly shoot them or their floors. After that, work your way across the top row. Score above twenty and the next door and the green button will be available. The green button will set you between you between the tables, and unable to move. With your sniper rifle, shoot the floor beneath them. They will earn you a point, but do not let them reach the doors. After twenty points you can unlock the elevator doors near next to the warehouse in the next red door. In here you will find a red and green button. Push the red button to try and kill twenty people. Note: Use the unlimited focus here. The green button can now be accessed. Knock as many people as you can off the platform within three minutes. Note: Kick them off for as long as you can and, when you engage combat mode, throw them off the edge.

  • In the training mode where you must fire at SWAT team members as they advance, the easiest way to do this is to select a high powered automatic weapon. When you can, backup until your back is against the shelf behind you. Strafe back and forth as you fire, and you will continue to pick up ammunition for your current gun. This will save costly weapon switching time and you will be done quickly.

  • You will have to complete a challenge that involves throwing off at least twenty people. Turn around and jump off the left corner toward the entrance. Remain there and they will kill themselves.

Niobe walks off building

Complete the game as Ghost, then activate the "Unlimited health" and "Unlimited ammunition" codes. Play the chase levels where many Agent Smiths are chasing you. Get to the point where you get the grenade launcher. Use the grenade launcher to take out the Agent Smiths. Continue until the final part just before the last sequence in the Matrix before you get on the platform and kill the Agent duplicates. Look directly ahead at the top of the balcony. You can see Niobe walking into the mini pillars. If you kill her, you will die even with the "Unlimited health" code. Fire the grenade launcher at her, and she should climb up the fencing and walk off the building completely.

Engage in early duel with an Agent on Answer The Phone level

While playing as Ghost on the city rooftops, after evading the many gaps and climbing the ladders, the Agent that burst through the door drops down to destroy you. If you choose to hide behind the left wall and attempt to fire off rounds from around the corner at this Agent, he will unsurprisingly dodge every bullet. If you Focus, you can jump over the gap between you and the Agent, and will be able to engage in hand-to-hand combat. However, at this point it is extremely hard to win; so continue to jump across to your left. Fall down into the lower area. Now, rather than taking the cop out and running up the stairs, dispatch the cop(s), but wait around long enough to see the Agent. If he fires at you, then Focus and bullet dodge to get close to him. You now have enough space to fully challenge this Agent without being closed in. Battling an Agent is more intense (and hard) than taking on any groups of police or SWATs, because they can avoid all bullets and have shattering strength. You will have to Focus almost all of the time in order to knock him down, and inevitably you will soon find yourself on the brink of death. Run up the stairs and to the phone if low on health. Note: Although you cannot fully destroy the Agent, you can momentarily defeat one until it moves into another body. This would seem impossible, but it is possible. Going back to the point where you climb up the ladder and the Agent first drops down, rather than waiting for the Agent to land, climb up the ladder. Before you even see the Agent, start running and use your Focus to jump to the platform where the Agent lands. Still holding Focus, move behind his position where he lands. Start kicking him, and as he is off guard, he is very unlikely to counter. If you kick him enough, you should be able to knock him off the edge of the "platform" and down the gap, causing the Agent to plummet to his death. Thus, you have momentarily defeated an Agent. Note: If you should ever face Agent Smith, you would be wise not to underestimate him, he is the most skilled Agent.

Stylish kills

  • Pull out your pistol(s) by pressing WEAPON DRAW, then press PUNCH to hit your enemy with the butt of the gun. Your gun will disappear. While he is dizzy, pull out your pistol(s) again and you will automatically grab his head and shoot him in the stomach.

  • Press PUNCH + WEAPON DRAW as Ghost to grab an enemy and shoot them in the stomach. You can also pick them up then throw and shoot them in the air.

  • While playing as either Ghost or Niobe, hold FOCUS and go up to someone that has a good sized gun (machine gun or sniper rifle). Press Action. This will make them take the weapon from the enemy and do various things (throw them to the ground and shoot them or smack them with their own weapon).

  • There are three easy ways to easily kill someone (excluding Bosses, Agents, and Vampires). Disarm someone with a long barreled gun (shotgun, MP5, sniper rifle, etc.). If you grab their gun, and smack them with the butt of it. Try to disarm someone from behind, thereby putting them in a sleeper hold. The best way, though, is to have a gun out and throw (PUNCH + KICK) someone. You will knock them down, then shoot their head.

  • If you have two pistols, hold FOCUS and jump while in a combat with someone. You will dive forward and start shooting.

  • Sneak up on someone, and the "Use" icon will appear. When this happens, press USE. Your character should start strangling the enemy. Quickly press FOCUS to swing them to one side. You will then hear the sound of their neck breaking.

  • When you sneak up on someone and choke them from behind, tap FOCUS and your character will break your opponent's neck.

  • When you have the chance to get an enemy from behind, press FOCUS then Action to kick the enemy down and break his neck on the ground silently. By doing this, your FOCUS meter will also recharge slightly.

  • When you need to disarm an enemy that is using weapons such machine guns or a sniper rifle, press FOCUS + Down + Action. If done correctly, you will bounce him over your body, and when on the ground shoot a couple rounds to kill him. This requires some practice. Note: When the move is being done, you can turn off the FOCUS to prevent its discharge.

Shotgun on Airport level

After the part where Niobe and Ghost make phone calls, you will start the level on top of a balcony. You will receive a message from Spark warning you that SWAT members are approaching. Do not bother with the stairs, and jump the railing down to the first floor. Directly in front of you are SWAT members coming through two sliding doors. Run past them while shooting and go through the sliding doors, then run behind the SWAT van. There will be a entry shotgun here.

Rating 5

Shortcut on On Foot level

It is possible to skip the whole level. Jump down off the truck and run to the right in Focus mode. You will see a fire escape ladder that you would usually see later in that level. Climb up the ladder and go up the stairs to reach a door. Go through it. Go through two more doors to complete the level.

Rating 5

Break Agent

I recommend you use the "Unlimited health", "Unlimited ammunition" , and "Unlimited Focus" codes for this. Use Focus and try to disarm the Agent. It may take a while, but eventually you should get it. Once the Agent is broken, you can punch and kick him and he will not react. He will simply stand there and straighten his tie every once in a while. If you try to shoot him, he still dodges the bullets as normal.

Rating 5

Dodge moves in midair

As Niobe or Ghost, you can use Focus after doing a normal jump. For example, run forward, press the button assigned to jump, and press Focus immediately afterwards. You will basically do a Focus Jump, just without the Focus Jump animation. At almost any time during the jump, press Action. If timed correctly, your character will perform a dodge move in midair. While this does not serve any real bonus to anything, it still looks good. However, it can help when you are on the run and need to gain extra jump and evasion distance.

Agent gun

If you kill an agent, take his gun (the .50 AE) as it is the most powerful handheld gun in the game. It will kill most normal enemies with one shot.

Kill Agent on Hard Line Pursuit level

After finding a grenade launcher after the telephone gets destroyed, find a cliff where you will get killed if you fall off. Lead an Agent to the cliff. Stand with your back to the cliff. Once the agent is at arms length away, Matrix jump over his head and run a short distance away. After that, turn around and take out the grenade launcher. Aim at his feet and try to blow him off the cliff, which saves ammo. You can also try kicking him off.

Easy completion on Control Tower 2 level

Quickly pull out a sniper rifle after the level loads, then put yourself in first person mode. A circle with a cross through it will appear. After that, press FOCUS and wait for the plane to come into your sights. Wait for the front wheel to come into the circle in the middle and shoot. This must be done several times to shoot the wheel. When you finally get it, you will see the bullet hitting the tire and popping it. You will then have to shoot the helicopter and get out of the tower.

Agent strategy on Agent On Board level

While in the tower and the Agent is shooting at you, immediately run down the left pillar and stand behind it. The helicopter should be at your back. Use your peek and shoot move to your left side. If you use a fast enough gun, you can kill the Agent in no more than three seconds. If you fail to kill him the first time, keep in mind he moves in this order: left, right, back. Stay behind the pillar and the your peek and shoot and you will not be hit.

You might have trouble grabbing the flashlight, which is actually a MP5 icon. To get it, take out your MP5 and waste its ammo so that the gun is no longer in the inventory. The same goes for MP5 pistols. Once this is done, you can pick up the flashlight/MP5. Equip it to turn on the flashlight.

Layout on Unexpected Arrival level

  • After starting the level, kill all the guards. Now look at the picture on the easel. It shows you the layout of that section of the post office. The red X is you, the green arrow is the fork lift, the green Xs are enemies, and the red O with a line through it is the place with the smoke grenade.

  • At the start of the level, kill the first two SWAT men. Then, travel about halfway down and you should see a whiteboard. Go up to it and look at it in first person view. It shows the plan for the level, where they will attack from and how many SWAT men are in every section.

Kill Agent on The Bowels

  • While playing as Niobe and are being chased by the Agent, get to one of the pillars with the gas tanks. Wait for the Agent, then shoot it as he runs by. If timed correctly, it will explode and he will die. You can even see his body. You will, however, see him at the ladder toward the end of the level.

  • While running from the Agent, run past the flammable gas tank. Wait for the agent, then shoot the tank. This will kill the Agent. When you get to the ladder at the end of the level (if you are fast enough), you will see a police officer turning into an Agent. Shoot him in the head while he is shaking. This will kill him again for a very long time.

Kill Agent on Jackson In Stream 2 level

  • As Niobe, the Agent will start to chase you. The large tank of "Dangerous Gas" you run past can be shot. When the Agent passes it, shoot it. It will explode, and kill the Agent. Note: You might want to enable the "Invisible to enemies" and "Unlimited health" codes.

  • Play as Niobie and you will start in a room where there is an Agent shooting at you. Ignore the "Don't fight, run message. Instead, take out your MPS gun (you can use a pistol). Shoot him and he will evade the bullets. Get him to dodge all the way to the left or right. At that moment, shoot the explosive barrel. It will kill him, and you may pick up his gun.

  • While playing as Niobe, when Sparks says run, do not fight him (turn on Focus). Run between the two missiles and turn around, then shoot the bio hazard sign. The Agent should fall and lose his gun. Note: Use the shotgun.

  • After finding tunnel 7R, An agent will chase you. There is a very easy way to kill him. Occasionally there will be a tower lit by red lights. On this there are four boxes labeled "Danger: Explosive!". Lure the Agent near one of those boxes, step back, and while in Focus mode, shoot the box in first person mode. This should quickly kill him, and you can take his Desert Eagle.

Focus Counter/Reversal technique

Enemies such as Agents, Seraph or Smith have a high rate of reversal/counter which can deal massive damage. On a high level, this makes offense not the best option, as the more you attack, the greater the window of opportunity for your opponent to counter/reverse. Anticipate a punch or kick, and before it starts you must fully Focus. Take note of the opponent's stance, keeping a view of their hands and feet while still Focused. The precise moment you see the opponent start to move their hands or feet to strike, press [Action] for a guaranteed reversal. The amount of damage dealt to the opponent here can be rewarding, as reversals are the most time sensitive and must be executed precisely during combat -- a misplaced reversal attempt usually leaves you vulnerable.

To jump off a wall, put your guns away, enter Focus, and jump toward the wall. Just before hitting the wall, press JUMP and you will flip off the wall in the air. If you want to do a bullet jump (the jump that you do in a battle with guns), draw your guns before you get to the wall and press [JUMP at it. Then, shoot away. You cannot shoot while flipping though.

  • Approach a Powerade vending machine and press ACTION close to the buttons on the machine. A Powerade will pop out.

  • In the Nuclear Plant level where you get the UMP, look at the wall right before you go up to the tower to find a Powerade vending machine.

  • When you have low health and are in trouble, go to a Powerade machine. Press ACTION and a Powerade will pop out of the machine. Run on top of it and, if done correctly, it will fill up your health.

Agent strategies on Answer The Phone

  • While running from rooftop to rooftop, you will see an Agent drop down onto another roof across a gap. If you Focus and unload on him while running at him, he will start to dodge your shots. Jump across the gap and over the Agent, firing at him as much as possible. When you are over his head, stop Focusing. You will land behind him and although you will not be shooting at him anymore, he will still be dodging for a couple seconds. Use this opportunity to get in a good strong kick or try to knock him into the gap. If you do not get him in the gap on your first try, you should most likely quit. If you knock him off the roof, you will see his gun appear on the ground, then immediately shrink into nothingness. You have now defeated the Agent.

  • This isn't easy to do and may take some time. After seeing the first Agent, keep running as usual. When you reach the place where the agent jumps through the wooden roof, shoot at him to keep him occupied (or throw him in Focus mode). Run up the steps right away and let him follow you. When he runs at you, move out of his way and let him stand near the edge. Run up to him (not in Focus) and try to throw him. Eventually, he will fall off the edge. When he does, stand on the edge on one of the small "bars". When you look down, you will see Agent Smith laying down on the sidewalk with his gun beside him. Note: When you look down there, you will also see regular cops shooting at you.

On the Hard Line Pursuit level in Chinatown, enable the "Unlimited Ammo", "Unlimited Health", and "Maximum Fire Power" cheats to start with the Grenade Launcher. If you hit a Mr. Smith with three direct Grenade Launcher shots, he will die.

Cheat warnings

  • When the "Unlimited Focus", "Unlimited Health", "Unlimited Ammunition", and "Maximum Firepower" are enabled simultaneously, the game places a grenade or bomb right where you start the level (only on some levels). It does not kill you, but will knock you for a loop. For example, on the "Agent On Board" level, you start out besides Axel. If one of those cheats are enabled, the bomb will blow up Axel and you will die, ending the game. You have to play this level without cheats in order to complete it. The way to get away from the bomb is run before it explodes.

  • Activating cheats can also cause other undesirable effects in the game. For example, when fighting Agent on Board and attempting to knock him off the plane, he will carry an MP5 instead of being unarmed.

  • When using codes such as "Unlimited Health and "Unlimited Ammunition" on the Catching A Plane level, when the last intermission sequence is loading the game may exit.

  • The Water Way level will prevent you from getting the flashlight while using the "Unlimited Ammunition" code on.

  • Having too many codes on in the Airport level may freeze the game at the end. When you get close to the end of the level, a loading screen will appear and turn black. You will have to reset the game to continue.

  • If you have cheats enabled when loading the mission named "Malachi And Bane 2", the screen will turn black and the game will freeze. If codes are enabled you must reset the game and replay the "Malachi And Bane" mission in order to continue. After the level is completed, you will be able to save.

Hack into The Matrix

  • After saving you can select the Hacking option and start to work on hacking into The Matrix itself. As the Matrix is quite simply a simulation, its rules are no different to a computer systems. This allows you to not only access all stored files, but you can change the physical laws of the system (as mentioned in the "cheat" descriptions) Laws like gravity can be bent, for a greater time/effect than the limited focusing alone. To take advantage of the Hack System's abilities, you must know exactly what to enter following the command prompt (default A Drive standard (A:\)): Enter DIR to display directory choices. You can just type .EXE then press Enter. The executable will be opened. It is not the same with .TXT files, as you must type READ first before the text file selection is revealed in Command List. Simply type DIR then a space followed by B:\ for the contents of the B Drive to be revealed for selection, rather than typing individual filenames. After experiencing the rabbit hole for yourself, the "CHEAT.EXE" is vital for those with free minds looking to further enhance skills, and bend the rules of The Matrix. After opening the executable, you will be required to enter specific codes, which will directly alter rules of The Matrix, making it easier for you to utilize your ability to focus the mind, and other aspects. Use it wisely.

  • If you want an easy way to unlock cheat mode, select "Hack" at title screen . Press any key when instructed. Once the system has loaded, type DIR. You will eventually see various choices. One of these choices will be "TOOLS". Rather than type it in, go all the way to the left where your options are "HELP and DIR". Click "DIR", then you will see the same choices on the screen above. Click on "TOOLS". From there you will see more choices "CHEAT.EXE" and so on. Click "CHEAT.EXE" and enter in any the codes.

  • Also, you do not have to enter "Yes" or "No" for command confirmations. You can just type Y or N to save time.

Dodge moves in mid-air (extended)

You must be Ghost for this trick. While running forward, press JUMP, then quickly press FOCUS. You should be in the air with the regular jump animation, but in Focus mode. When desired, press ACTION. You will do a dodge move in mid air. You cannot do this just after you jump, and if you wait too long you will fall straight down. There is a certain time-frame in which you can do this. You can use any dodge direction with this trick. You can cartwheel left or right, dodge forward, and can also dodge backwards. If you dodge backwards and do a backwards hand-spring, quickly and repeatedly tap DODGE again and continue to hold your AWAY. You will do a back flip in the air as well. If you do the backwards spin turning right, you can do the same as above and immediately press ACTION to do a spin turning to the left in mid-air. Not only can you dodge, but if you take out a weapon you can do the dive/cartwheel attacks. You can also punch or kick, although kicking is probably better in the air than punching.

Exit terminal on Concourse level

While playing as Niobe, a woman runs past you when you first start. Run directly towards the railing and jump over it. Sparks will tell you to stay out of the lobby unless you want a fight. Fight the cops that enter the lobby then turn and go back to the side of the concourse that you started on. Make sure to stay on the ground floor and run towards the escalators. Turn left when you get to them and do not go up. Proceed across to the other side of the concourse and turn left around that corner. Somewhere in front of you or near you should be a man. If you go near him, he will start to run away. Follow him. He will keep looking back at you and will trip. He will run a bit farther, then stop, turn, and walk out the door of the terminal. You can follow him out before the door closes to get outside. You will see the SWAT van parked at the curb, and if you go around to the other side you can pick up an entry shotgun. There is really nothing else useful out there, but you can run around if desired.

Confused Agent on Vertigo level

  • When you first get outside, do a Matrix jump and land on the first bar. Avoid moving or you will fall off. If you see the Agent, he will be punching nothing. This is a good time too refill health and Focus. Note: The Agent may fire at you.

  • While being chased by all the Agent Smith clones, get to the window which first leads you out to the scaffolding and climb out of it. Once on the scaffolding, grab a gun and hide around the corner. Once Agent Smith comes into firing range, fire through the window while hiding round the side so you can evade if he fires back. After emptying a round on him, he will stop, straighten his tie and jacket, and will not attack you, even if you hurt him.

Agent Smith strategies

  • You can take down Agent Smith without a wall kick, even if temporarily. First, scoot back so he does not throw you, then equip any gun and fire. At the same time, go into Focus and, while he is evading the bullets you just fired, run in then punch or kick him until he goes down. Kicks are recommended because they are more powerful. After that, get out of there while still using Focus. When you are out of harms way, let off the Focus. Note: Doing this in cramped spaces such as hallways is not recommended unless absolutely necessary.

  • When facing the Agent Smiths, there will be a level where you find a grenade launcher. Stay far back when shooting or you will hurt yourself in the explosion. The Smiths will die with about three shots from the grenade launcher. Be careful -- even when you have infionite health, you could be blown off the buildings and die. Also, do not get close to the Smiths or they will throw you. When a Smith dies, you can pick up an actual Agent's gun (the .50AE), which can be used in dual handguns. These handguns are the most powerful in the game.

  • With a 40 mm grenade launcher, go into Focus mode and shoot him three or four times. Look again and he will be dead on the floor. You can take his gun if desired. Kill another one to have a double weapons.

  • In one of the Chinatown levels where you escape from Agent Smith, there is a grenade launcher somewhere. Three shots with this will kill Agent Smith.

Agents strategies

  • On some levels you have grenades or grenade launchers. Three launched at far range or one at close range will kill them. If they do not die, pull out a gun. When the auto aim is red, it indicates near death; you can easily take them in hand to hand combat. Occasionally sparking objects are nearby. Knock them into it and will die.

  • During the level where the Agents chase you up the stairs and onto the rooftops, you can kill them. Before entering the levels, make sure you have the "Unlimited ammunition", "Unlimited health", and "All weapons" codes enabled. At the start of the level, cycle through your weapons and select the grenade launcher. As soon as an Agent runs after you, shoot him three times with the grenade launcher. Wait until the smoke clears and they will be dead.

  • This trick works best if you are Ghost. In any level that has an Agent and you are or can get to a roof, go up to the Agent. He might kick or punch you back; watch the ledges. Hit him once or twice so that the camera pans to the side. Walk up to him, punch him, then do a Focus Kick (without pressing a direction). The agent will fly back. While he is on the ground press PUNCH, PUNCH, FOCUS + BACK + PUNCH. This will do an uppercut, sending him flying. Once he is in the air, press KICK and Ghost will do a flying kick, sending the Agent soaring across the room. If you are on a roof, do this to send him flying over the edge, where he dies on impact.

  • Activate the "Unlimited ammunition" code and obtain the GP gun (which takes the oxygen out the air). It can kill an Agent.

  • The first time you face an Agent, run. Towards the end of the pursuit, the Agent drops directly in front of you. Note that there is is a gap in the building between you and him. Focus and make the jump. After that, while he still getting up from the fall, run behind him with your back close to the wall and do a kick off the wall. He will fly into the gap, and get killed.

  • When fighting Agents, kick repeatedly at them while they are near a wall. They will soon be laying in the wall.

  • In levels with several Agents, use Invisibility and hit one. It may make him fight his partner.

  • On the level with the Gp-25 Launcher, go up to an Agent and shoot him. He will try dodging it, but the smoke kills him. Note: You must be Niobe to see an Agent in this level.

  • You can kill Agents in either of two ways, using a grenade launcher/thrown grenades, or by hand to hand combat. However, to kill them in hand to hand combat, you need to be on a level with rooftops or windows. This strategy works best with Ghost, as his punch combo involves sending an Agent in air, and you can follow up with a jump kick. In order to get close enough to the Agent to send him in his downward plummet, you need to enable the "Unlimited Focus" and "Unlimited Health" codes. The "Swordfight" code also works well for taking on multiple Agents, but is not necessary. First, shoot at the Agent so that he starts dodging the bullets. After that, use your Focus, get into him, and use the back punch combo that uses the two uppercuts. Next, kick at him and repeat until the Agent has fallen to his demise. Throwing works as well, if do are not using the sword

  • An easy way to kill Agents is to blow them apart with explosive weapons. Enabling the 7F4DF451 code is recommended. Three to four grenades may be needed.

  • To kill any Agent you encounter, activate the 0034AFFF code. Take out your grenade launcher and blow him up about four times. Note: The explosions will kill you if you do not have infinite health active.

  • In the final level at the Nuclear Power Plant, you must escape from several Agents. In the Transformer Field-level, you should have acquired a Chloride-gun (gas-grenade launcher weapon). When you use it against Agents, they will choke and die.

Easier VIEW and PLAY commands

Type in the command (VIEW or PLAY) and press SPACE and then CTRL, then use the cursor keys to the parameters list on the "on-screen" keyboard at the bottom of the hacking page. Highlight the file you wish to play or view and press CTRL again. For some reason, entering the parameter on the keyboard (the normal one, not on-screen) does not do anything. It either says "Playing FMV.... done" or displays double blank lines for "VIEW". Obviously, the content must be found and unlocked first. Use DIR on all the directories under "B:\" and "LOGOS:".

To unlock the swordfight, first open the Hacking program from the main menu. Open a file that has the game completed. Note: You must have completed the game first in order for this cheat to work; and the game file you select at the Hacking menu must have the game completed. Type LOGIN and press Enter, then type GUEST and press Enter. Type DIR, then a space. DIR should now appear in your command list. Access the B Drive through the DIR command. Choose TOOLS from the B Drive. It will be locked and will ask you for an access code. The access code consists of 1s and 0s. You must guess the access code, as it is different every time. It is only five digits long. Once you have access to the TOOLS on the B Drive, type all the .EXE files (without the .EXE after them). For example, type DECODE then a space. DECODE will now appear in the command list. Repeat this for all other .EXE files in the TOOLS folder in the B Drive. Now, access VIRTUAL on your command list. Type in FROZENFISH as the password. An authentication test will start. An image of a Chinese symbol will appear, but it will be scrambled. The image is broken into 9 squares, and each square will have five different choices. You must change all the pieces so that a complete image appears. You won't have time to do this. Once you guess a correct image, the timer will stop and you will be taken back to the hacking screen. Look at the top of the screen. If it says "Solution: Blue", then the line will be traced and you will have to enter TRACEKILL and then press ENTER as fast as possible or all progress will be lost. Once you go intoTRACEKILL, you will have to start back at accessing VIRTUAL on your command list. However, if it says "Solution: Red", then you will hear a message from Neo and get access to the V Drive. Open the V Drive and get all the commands from the TOOLS folder on your command list, then open the ROOTSEARCH program. Now, open the ROOT folder in the B Drive and get the two commands there on your command list. Enter the MAIL command and type THISISNOTREAL as the password and type YES. You will get a list of phone numbers:


Choose the DIAL command and dial 001949555010. You should get a message from Persephone. Next dial 0013105550111. You will get you a message from Trinity. She will give you a number. Select PORTKEY and enter the number. She will start talking to you. Type NO to both questions and she will give you a program called CRACK on your command list. Open it, then type 8RAM. It should look like this: "CRACK 8RAM". You now have access to the RAM drive. Go to DIR on your command list and access the RAM drive. A list of folder names will appear. Open the TRINITY folder. Get the Training command on your DIR by typing TRAINING then a space. Go to your command list and select TRAINING. On you command list, a file called SWORD.DSK will come up. Select it. It has now uploaded the sword onto you character in the Matrix. Quit the hacking program and select "Save Progress". You can use the sword when you start that game file.

The Matrix Reloaded easter egg on Freeway level

While playing as either Niobe or Ghost, you will pass under several bridges. A couple minutes from the start of the level, you will pass under a particular bridge that appears to have a fire blazing on top of it. This is a reference to The Matrix Reloaded, when Morpheus sabotaged the vehicle the Twins were driving in, while on top of that very bridge. What you see in the game is what remains.

Take out helicopter on Airport level

  • When facing the helicopter as Ghost, focus Run across the room to where the wall starts to curve. Back up against the wall facing the away from the large glass window. Hold AUTO AIM and when the SWAT starts to jump down through the window, use your Focus and dispatch them with as minimal ammo possible. Go back to where you were against the wall earlier and wait for the helicopter to pass over. When it does, it will shoot the wall. If you are in the correct location, it will not hit you. After hearing the bullets stop, run around the wall and the helicopter will be exposed without any protection. Use your Focus and dump at least a clip into it. Then, return to the wall and repeat the process. It only takes three to four times to take down the helicopter.

  • While playing as Ghost and after shooting off the plane's tire, you will encounter the Agent chopper. Change your weapon from the M95 Sniper Rifle to the SG - 552. Quickly stand almost as far back as you can go from your current position, so that you are not too close to where the chopper will appear. As soon as you see it, use Focus and fire at the same time. The chopper should take major damage, but will leave your health at a minimum of about 20% before backing off. It will then try attacking you from the right; turn about 90 degrees to your right and get ready to blast it with the remaining ammunition. Avoid staying too far back because your shots may have less chance of hitting. You may get killed here if your reflexes are not fast enough. Also, if you defeat the chopper you may be left with just 1% health, but this is enough to get you out of there, let you save your game, and continue the war to save Zion.

  • To easily defeat both helicopters in The Airport, drop weapons at the ticket counter just before you meet the first helicopter. Using Ghost, under the hard difficulty setting, you can hack and view the map for The Airport, which shows the code PNSRZ10. Use the "DROP" command with that code and get two M240 weapons at the ticket counter just before the first helicopter battle. Using an M240 takes about eight seconds to kill a helicopter. For the first helicopter, wait behind a wall for it to turn around after firing, then run out to unload on it. It should go down before it makes its way to the roof to drop cops through the window. As for the second helicopter, hide behind the columns in the tower and use the "FOCUS" and "STRAFE" commands to shoot at it and still keep moving towards the opposite column. It may take about three times if you follow this method with the M240. The tough part about using the M240 is remembering not to waste it in the time between the two helicopter battles.

  • It is easier to kill the first helicopter by allowing it to make its first pass. While it passes, prepare an automatic weapon. As soon as the shooting stops, press FOCUS, get around the corner, and start to shoot the helicopter. Follow it all the way, You should get about three clips unloaded at the helicopter and will almost always kill it in its first pass. If done correctly, this allows you to destroy the helicopter without a scratch. Remember to get away from the right side of the window when the helicopter starts to fall or the explosion will kill you.

  • When facing the Agent helicopter, immediately use the SSG-552 quickly. When the helicopter appears, shoot it as quickly as possible and he will die. Run down the stairs or you will also die. Note: This doesn't work all the time.

  • This strategy is easy but time consuming. Once the mission begins, use Focus and run to the wall opposite to you. Wait for the SWAT members to pop in from the roof. Make sure you have stun grenades and the machine gun. Having flash bangs is also recommended. Kill the SWAT members using Focus to avoid damage and steal their ammunition. To take them out, once they pop in tossa grenade at them, then mow them down with the machine gun. Then, hide behind the fountain and wait for the helicopter to pass. It will be shooting a high powered chain gun. It will soon turn around with its closed side to you and be vulnerable. Use Focus and shoot around the corner of the fountain. Leave one clip for the SWATs. The chopper will pass. After that, run to the wall again. Once again, SWATs will pop in and then you will have to repeat the process.

  • With a fast gun such as a MP5, sidestep and go left and right with your hand on the trigger at all times until it flies up. Do this on all sides until it gets destroyed. It usually requires two sides to take it down.

  • Activate the the "Unlimited health", "Unlimited ammunition", and "Unlimited Focus" codes. After shooting the tire off of the plane, An Agent will appear and turn into a SWAT member. The Agent will fly up with a helicopter. Tun as far as you can away from the helicopter and hide behind a pillar. Focus run and shoot with you best gun then run back behind another pillar. If the helicopter comes around the corner, then run behind a pillar that it cannot shoot you with. When you shoot the helicopter, it should lose life fast. Keep repeating this.

  • Listen for the sounds of gunfire and breaking glass until it stops, then get your MP5 and move to the right where the helicopter is located. Shoot it until it gets to the last window. Then, get a stun grenade and toss it immediately after the helicopter passes the last window to kill the SWAT team. Keep doing this until the helicopter crashes and explodes.

Shortcut on Vertigo level

Play through the level as usual until reaching the part where the Agents drop out of the buildings and put you through a wooden floor. Instead of walking or jumping it, do a long Matrix jump over the gap next to it. If you make it the leap, follow the outer boards and do a big jump at the end to the windows. Once in the building, exit at the far window and you will be close to the end of the level. By doing this, you will eliminate about 75% of the level.
