'El Matador - Ole' Challenge Click here to view the video Try not to get gored by the Minotaurs and don't get piled on by the enemies. Best way to do this is use the Square, Square, Triangle combo twice at the start to take out the first Minotaur and then use L1 + Square on the other enemies. At the stages where there are 2 and 3 Minotaurs go to the ledge and roll so you hang off (keep pressing X while moving left to right so you dont fall or climb up) and let the Minotaurs charge at you so they fall off and take other enemies.

Simply beat up the big enemy at the start and climb onto him when the enemies spawn and keep hitting them using Square. Try to get the Minotaurs and Wraiths as much as possible as they are worth the most points.

Begin with ALL Weapons MaxedAdded 29 Apr 2010, ID #2655
The following glitch will allow you to have ALL the weapons and items fully upgraded when you begin a game on any difficulty setting. To enable the glitch beat the game on any difficulty to unlock the 'Challenges of Olympus' feature and then complete ALL 7 Challenges of Olympus to unlock the Combat Arena. Start a round in the Combat Arena on Titan difficulty and if you now die in quick succession the game will ask if you want to switch to Easy mode. Select 'No' and start a game. This glitch is best used immediately before attempting Chaos mode.
It's actually a corection on the maxxed out weapons after the combat arena glitch I)it works only on difficulty levels you already have completed Ii)if you use something before it is to be used in the original game event series for example (break the judges and you go for the chain before you beat hades the ps3 lags and can't be turned off except from the button on the console and you may end up loading the same spot again and again) Iii)the chains of exile don't maxx out you get em from athena at zero exp

To perform this glitch you must first unlock the Combat Arena. Set the magic to infinite and get yourself killed in the Combat Arena 5 times so that the game asks if you want to switch to 'Easy' mode.
