On planet Arida, when doing the assassination level, use the vehicle to jump over two cliffs. They are located next to 1 of the bridges at the right-hand side of the starting point. Doing this will give you a skill point.

Fast Weapon XP

Need easy stages to get weapon experience? Play the Annihilation Nation challenge against Scorpio to rack up the XP. Some weapons, like the shield glove, may need different stages to gain XP. For the shield glove, try playing the battle missions in Marcadia and having the bevy of peons shoot your shield for XP.

Upgrade Flux Rifle Quickly

First, go to the planet Mylon and then get out your flux rifle. Then go to the very end of the platform at the very beginning of the level. Next shot both of the robonoid commenders. It will take some time to beat them but each shot upgrades your rifle to the v3. Then it takes 2 shots. If they both die (and they will), just jump off and start over. Just keep doing this till it is upgraded all the way (this should take about 2 minutes, tops).

Free Ammo and Health

Go to any challenge like Annihilation Nation, start the challenge and quit and it refills your ammo and health. This will save you thousands of bolts.

Override Weapon Switch in Arena

When fighting in the battle arena you will come upon matches where your weapon will auto switch after a few shots. To avoid this follow these steps. Start firing off shots till you get the hurricane. When it is out, simply hold the fire button and don't let go or do a clank double jump and you will continue to fire the hurricane even though the weapon in you selector block will say something else. I find this easiest to do if you switch to lock-strafe-mode and then hold down R1 (fire).
