Change Gears Quickly:
When you are on the world map or a place that you can use your Gears,
press L2+R2 and you can hop in and out without going to the menu.
This is a useful tip for playing disk 2 of Xenogears. At the dungeon
where Rico gets his new gear, there's this monster called Hamar, who
self-destructs after he glows red. The explosion is lethal but the
party can escape before Hamar blows up.
However, the trick here is to kill him before he blows up and he will
give a special item which increases the rate of receiving rare items.
(Actually, it goes to 100%.) The way to do it is to reserve some
infinity or level 3 attacks until he turns red. Once he starts glowing,
give it all to him. (Booster helps too!)
With the special item equipped, go to any forest & fight white snails.
These creatures were plentiful in disk 1 but now they are quite rare.
Killling these creatures gives the speed belt (helps gears & human
battles). Besides this, there are many other special items/equipment
carried by monsters.
Immediatly dash up to your opponent and begin rapidly alternating
between the X attack and the CIRCLE dash buttons. X will launch a kick
and CIRLCE will cancel the combo, allowing you to immediatly start
another. With a bit of practice, any gear (including the Champ's) will
be in endless stagger until it croaks. Battle on, Fei!
Free Gear Repairs and Easy Fuel:
While in the secret base which houses "Goliath" you will undoubtedly
encounter gears surrounded by mechanics which repair them. When this
happens kill the mechs but leav the mechanics unharmed. After the
mechs are dead let the Mechanics "attack" you but instead of attacking
you they will fix your gear for a couple rounds. After awhile they will
no longer fix you but attack you however they only cause 1 point of
damage(if that!) so instead of killing them charge your fuel! By the
time you have full fuel capacity they have only damaged you for about
10 points(not even that if you gear is half-way good!)
Fun Things to Do:
1: In Lahan Village search Fei's bed you will find two hundred smackers.
Also search the barrles near Fie's room you will find two aquasols.
2: To get a Movie scene at the begining talk to the maid in the room
across from Fei's room to get a cool movie scene.
3: This one is use less but fun go behind Alice's house talk to the boy
he says that he had a crush on Alice. Most of the people talk about
Alice so talk to them.
Get the Deathblow Item:
When you are on the Thames, you will encounter people who challenge you
to a game that is similar to speed. If you win against all the people
located in the Beer hall and the Supply Grounds, go to the Armor grounds
and play against the female who is standing with two men. If you bet
her, she will give you a deathblow item for your gear. This item will
allow you to do a deathblow attack.
Help on Beating Calamity:
At the end of the Stalactite Cave you will meet a huge Gear. Not a
happy camper, Calamity the Gear will be a large problem. Make sure Fei
and Bart are on high levels (20-25), even though it is still hard to
win at that. Have Bart cast Wild Smile on Calamity, making it hard for
him to hit you with any of his physical attacks. Next, hit him with
all your ten point attacks, and save your energy until your gear power
is at level one. Use your best level one combos for both Fei and Bart,
hopefully huting the huge gear. Keep in mind that Calamity has 2500 Hp.
It will take a while to wear him down. Don't be so happy about how much
he can hurt you,his missle attack will still hit you a whopping 400-500
damage, not giving you much time. But if it ever comes to this, use
Fei's Guided Shot as your last defense.
Lahan Well Items:
At the start of the game in Lahan, jump down the well a few times. You'll
get an eyeball (sell it for gold) an Aquasol S, a Power Ring, a chill
(yes, a chill) and a lot of "well" puns!
This isn't really a code, but it's fun to see! Remember Lucca in Chrono
Trigger? Well, she's in Xenogears! When you first start the game and
take control of Fei, go to the Information House (left of the Elder's
House). There, if you look closely, you'll see that it's in fact Lucca
who teaches you about Save Points.
Just after beating "The Champ" Rico at the arena, head over to the
Wildcat Bar in the Civilian Area in Kislev. You'll find Big Joe
standing near an alley. He'll ask you for 5000 G to show you something
cool. Give him the gold, but he'll take it and run. Let him have it.
Later, after the air raid by Aveh, you'll see Big Joe in the city map.
He'll apologize for ganking your gold and tell you to look in the alley
again. You'll find the M Disc, which you can play in the juke box in
If you go to Shevat (the UFO country), go into the old capital area. If
you wander around you will find a store full of Chu-Chus. Go onto the
balcony and talk to the pink Chu-Chu on top of the light cone (you have
to jump and hit [X] when you touch her), she will tell you about Light,
darkness, and Dawn. She is giving you a clue to where to find the Stones
of Dawn, Dusk, and Darkness.
To get the Dark Stone, go down the elevator in the Chu-Chu store and go
out of the door. You'll meet an old woman who will sell you some Spider
Web (unless you got the web in the beginning of the game) and tell you to
fish in the fountain. Go back to where you came out of, jump to the top
of the fountain, and hit [X]. Fei will pull up a fish with the Dark Stone
in it's mouth. Now, go to the ruined house in the old capital. In the
first room there is a doll on the table by the door. It is holding the
Dusk Stone. Now go outside onto the main part of the saucer (with the
angel statue and the red things). Go as far as you can in the direction
the statue is facing and search. You now have the Dawn Stone.
Go back to the old capital and step on the circular stone under the arch.
Now hit [X] and choose to go down. Go down the staircase, out the door,
and go to the elevator pad you can see. Step on, activate it, and Fei
will put the three stones in it. The pad will now take you to a secret
room. Search the two lowest tables. One has a Chu-Chu idol that Chu-Chu
can equip when she joins you, and the other one has a ton of goodies.
Rename your Gear:
To rename your gear you must do the following steps.
1. Go to the gear bay on the Yggdrasil.
2. Go towards the gear you want to rename.
2. You can talk to the engineer and he will give you the downlow on your
gear, or you can go to the right and there will be a guy who looks like
he is welding something. If you talk to him he will ask you if you want
to rename your gear.
When you are in the Yadrisil (Sandmarine Ship) go to the control room and
talk to the large dolphin-like control man. Choose the top selection for a
sound test. He'll keep asking the same question over and over. Select the
first choice again for a new sound, or pick the second choice to leave.
After winning two rounds in the battle arena in Kislev, press R2+L2 to get
the words off the screen that shows how long it took you to win the battle,
then you can rotate your Gear by pressing left or right.
