===============================================================================
2. Introduction

Hello. My name is Brendan Walsh. Some may know me as MoonSoo. Don't ask about
the Fatdonkey thing. That was a while back. -_-

Anyway, this here is my very first FAQ, and I decided to base it upon Urban
Reign for the Sony Playstation 2.. Why? Well, to me, Urban Reign is one of 
the most underrated games out there right now. My friend and I always enjoy 
playing the game in Challenge mode. I think the game's greatest shine is the 
gameplay. It has one of the best physics I've ever seen in a game.

But let's get to the point. I've always been wanting to make an FAQ for quite
some time. And Urban Reign is probably the game I'm best at thus far. Pretty
soon, I might make a Warriors FAQ, that is, if they accept it. I'm such a
sucker for Beat 'em Ups. :D

So right now, I'm going to try my best to have all of you fans appreciate my
first FAQ as much as I can. And who knows? It may actually be good. ^_^

What I'm mostly going to concentrate on are the characters themselves. Their
strengths and weaknesses. What weapon(s) is good for him/her. Their rating.
All that jazz.

Well, let's get started shall we?

Oh, and have fun. :D

- MoonSoo.

P.S. Oh, and I almost forgot. This FAQ should only be found in GameFAQs ONLY.
If I find this FAQ anywhere else, well, then it's not going to be pretty.
Unless ofcoarse you get my permission. -_-

So please, no one steal this. I don't want to be dealing with copyright laws.
===============================================================================
3. READ FIRST!!!

If this is your first time to Urban Reign, or are new to it, then read this. A
few guidelines for the beginners in Urban Reign.

a) Make your difficulty on either Easy or Very Easy for first-timers!

   I'm the type of guy who usually plays in Normal or Hard mode, even if it is
my first time playing. But after about a half an hour on playing Urban Reign 
in Hard, I felt like I was going to kick my tv. And I usually rock in Beat
'em ups.
   So yes, make your difficulty atleast on easy for your first time. Urban
Reign has this thing where the opponents are either punching bags or being
Rocky Marciano. Especially when there's more than one of the. You may be having
fun at one point, but wait until you get up to the major type characters.

b) Do not play this game if you want a deep storyline.

   Or atleast rent the game. Basically, this game is all about gameplay. The
storyline in the game is very... how should I say this, non-existing. Yes,
there is a storyline in the game, but it's very weak. 
   So if you want a game with awesome gameplay, then this game is for you. If
you want a game with an awesome storyline only, don't bother with this game.

c) Try to have a friend play with you.

   Believe me, the multiplayer in this game is incredible. While it may lack
a co-op mode *grumble grumble*, this game has an outstanding multiplayer action
in both Multiplayer and Challenge mode. And the double teams are sick!
   So, if you have any friends out there with you, HAVE THEM PLAY WITH YOU!!!
Thank you and have a nice day. ^_^

d) What to do after you beat the storyline.

   Like many games, Urban Reign is packed with unlockables. Nothing really big
though. Just a bunch of secret characters (more than 60!!) and a few new
modes to play in.

e) Play Story Mode FIRST
   
   If you go right into multiplayer mode, you're not going to have much of a
fun time. Don't worry. Story mode is just 100 missions... No, it's shorter than
it sounds.
   Then after you unlock quite a few people, then you can try unlocking more
once you unlock free mode when completing story mode as well.

b) Combos and Juggles

   Probably the biggest thing in Urban Reign's gameplay are the combos. The
combos in this game are a must. If you just push the circle button randomly,
you could easily be defeated. 
   Just like in Tekken and Soul Calibur, there is a juggle system. The juggle
system can be both easy to do, and very hard to initiate.
   Once you launch your enemy in the air, then what? What combo will you
perform? This is where Urban Reign begins to really shine. Unlike games like
Mortal Kombat Deception, and such (and I'm not bashing it for all of you MK
fans out there), this game has many different moves that you can perform in
a juggle. So much variety in the juggles.
   One thing you should know about combos and juggles. An enemy can begin to
dodge in the middle of a juggle or a combo. And if you are caught in a combo or
juggle, you'll have to push the dodge button (square), except it has to be more
precise, meaning that you have to dodge within the frame the opponent hits you.

c) Character strengths and weaknesses

   Every character in Urban Reign has strengths and weaknesses, just like in
real life. Even the over-powered, juiced up Golem has a weakness, but we'll
get into that later. Whether it may be

 \____________/                                    \____________/

b) Advanced Movements

   In Urban Reign, The attack you do depends on what directional you are 
pressing at the time. There are 4 different directional attacks. Up. Down.
Left/Right and Neutral (no directional at all). Same goes with Special 
Arts and Grabs. 

c) Specials/SPA
A special meter is indicated right below your health meter. Each directional
will differ the amount of your special needed. How do you gain more of your
special? Either just beat the crap out of your opponent, dodge his/her 
attacks, or take damage.
Just like Attack, Specials have four different directionals. The neutral
special (pushing triangle and circle only) pushes back enemies that are close
to you.

d) Charge-Up
One special that every character in the game has. Whether it may be Golem,
or Em Cee, every one has this special. This SPA will help your character status
in any way. There are 4 different SPA's and every character only has one.
These SPA's will differ pending on who you are using.
To initiate SPA, push down and Special (Triangle and Circle). Your 
character will charge up in whatever SPA he has. This requires 50% of your
special meter.
Every SPA has a color, representing what type of effect it will have. Your
character will then glow with that color. The SPA's are as follow:

Red: Power Up
Increases offensive power for a limited time.

Yellow: Armor
Increases toughness and will have no staggering animations when hit (Does not
apply to grapples)

Blue: Concentration
Automatically performs counter-attacks and grapple breaks for a short time.

Green: Arcanum
Allows character to perform different moves that were not available before.

e) Weapons
In Urban Reign, weapons can be the very difference between winning and losing.
Each weapon will have different effects and uses, depending on who you're
using and what weapon you have in possession.
For example, McKinzie specialty is the Hunting Knife. If you give him, oh say,
a Kendo Stick, the results are not going to be the same.
While weapons can be a savior, other characters are actually better without a
weapon, like Tong Yoon for example.

f) Partner menu
If you're fighting along side with an A.I. partner, the Partner menu can help
tell your partner what to do.
While holding the R2 button, there are five commands that you could perform.
Here is a list of selections in the Partner Menu:
R2: Double-Team attack call
R2+X: Switch character/partner
R2+Circle: Split up
R2+Triangle: Help
R2+Square: Pass Weapon/Receive Weapon

g) Regions
Every character in Urban Reign has three body regions: Head, Upper and Lower.
Every character has different strengths and weaknesses within these regions and
knowing a character's strength and weakness in regions can be the difference
between victory and defeat.
Every character has moves that will damage a specific region or regions if it's
a combo-type move.
There are three stages of regional health:

Green: Fine
The region is either not harmed at all or damaged very very slightly.

Yellow/Blue lightning: Injured
This region has taken quite a beating and is now weaker than before.

Red/Red lightning: Destroyed
This region has now taken a huge amount of damage, making that region very weak
and vulnerable to attacks.

There are two ways to tell the stage a specific region is in.
1. The small picture of a body next to your health and SPA meter, showing the
three stages of regional health by going through the colors green, yellow and
red.

2. When attacking the person's region, you may see some lightning effects form
around the region. For example, if a person's upper region is in an injured
state, when you hit the upper region, you will some blue lightning form around
the upper body, signaling the region's state of health.
===============================================================================
6. The Story/Storyline Walkthrough

As you probably guessed, this is where the story mode takes place. To start a
new story mode, go to NEW GAME on the top, as you would've guessed. In story
mode, you will gain new moves, partners and abilities as you progress. How
you strengthen your abilities is up to you. You will be allowed to edit at the
end of each level. You play as Brad Hawk in story mode.
You have just about all of your moves except for the running power bomb, air
grabs and only neutral SPA. For a complete focus on Brad's moves, check the
Character Profiles below.

Here's a few tips to get you started. You can run up against walls and enemies,
although it will do you almost no good at all, since you lack dive attacks for
now. You can double throws, meaning that you can throw two guys at once, 
whether they are both in front of you or one is in front while one is behind
you, but they can be cancelled if an opponent not being thrown interrupts
your double attack.


Story mode
=========
(There will be no spoilers whatsoever. I will try to leave huge spoilers out as
much as possible)

===============================================================================
                                  CHAPTER: 1
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 1: Warming Up
=========

Stage: Back Alley
=====

Requirements: Defeat all opponents
============

Opponents: Em Cee, Real Deal
=========

Advice: Experiment with your moves
======

Em Cee is a very weak and crappy fighter, so he should be absolutely no problem
what so ever. Real Deal is just a bit stronger than Em Cee, but still just a
push-over. You will start off with Real Deal in front of you and Em Cee behind
you. Just take them both out and get a feel for the game.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 2: First Job
=========

Stage: Chinatown
=====

Requirements: Defeat all opponents
============

Opponents: Spider, Busta
=========

Advice: Experiment with your moves
======

Spider and Busta are waiting outside for you. They both should be a piece of 
cake. Just beat them both up.
===============================================================================

(From here on, you get to choose your mission on the map in any order. I'll
list the missions by number order.)

===============================================================================
Mission 3: Declaration
=========

Stage: Bar
=====

Requirements: Defeat Busta
============

Opponent: Busta
========

Advice: None
======

One of the guys beaten just before is back. Just whoop him once more in this
level.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 4: Friendly Gesture
=========

Stage: Hideout
=====

Requirements: Defeat one of the opponents
============

Opponents: Seth, Rod, Torque
=========

Advice: Defeat Rod instead of the other two.
======

Now Glen Kluger's biker gang, the Hell's Legions, are getting a piece of you.
All you have to do is knock out one of the guys (preferably Rod) and that's it.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 5: Child's Play
=========

Stage: Southend
=====

Requirements: Defeat one of the opponents
============

Opponents: Nas-Tiii, Ty, Real Deal
=========

Advice: Just fight Nas-Tiii
======

These three are just push-overs. Nas-Tiii wants to go against you, so just
finish him off. 
If you hit either Ty or Real Deal (who are by the car, watching you fight 
Nas-Tiii) or if you throw Nas-Tiii into one of them or if you waste too much
time, they will come after you. So just be careful if you  can't handle the 
three altogether.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 6: Turf
=========

Stage: Motel
=====

Requirements: Defeat the opponent within the time limit (1:00)
============

Opponents: Reggie
=========

Advice: Go for his head. Don't fool around unless you know what to do.
======

Your first real mission. Reggie is actually quite a good fighter and may prove
to be a challenge to first-timers. What makes Reggie hard to counter during a
combo is that there's usually a pause, so you'll have to time perfectly with
his combo.
You have one minute to take out Reggie. Don't fool around unless you know what
you're doing. As time grows shorter, the music will get louder, reminding you
of how much time you have left. The time can be seen on the top of the screen.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 7: Retaliation
=========

Stage: Chinatown
=====

Requirements: Defeat all opponents
============

Opponents: Busta, Spider, Pain Killah
=========

Advice: If things get too wild, run. Use health drinks to your advantage.
======  Double throws work pretty well.

You will face three of the zaps here. Shouldn't be too hard, but if things do
get out of hand, try to run away and wait for them. Then do a hit and run. And
double throws help as well.
And when you defeat someone, he will drop a health drink. Pick it up by using
L1 and push circle to regain some of your health. It's a one time only drink,
so use it wisely. Push L1 to discard afterwards.

Mission 8: New Kid on the Block
=========

Stage: Southend
=====

Requirements: Defeat all opponents
============

Opponents: Emilio, Jose
=========

Advice: Fight off Emilio first.
======

Emilio will go after you first. Rough him up a bit. Jose will join in on the
action soon afterwards. Then take them both out easily.
===============================================================================

(You can now use the diving attack combos and grabs by running up walls and
people)

===============================================================================
Mission 9: Eye for an Eye
=========

Stage: Warehouse
=====

Requirements: Defeat all opponents
============

Opponents: Reggie, Zach, Colin
=========

Advice: Use diving moves and dodge counters to your advantage. Double throws
======  work nicely in this level.

It's you against three Karate experts. This can prove to be quite challenging.
However, with your new diving attack now learned, you can use that to beat
these guys up.
But remember, they all fight like Reggie, who had a confusing combo to counter,
so be careful when fighting these guys. After defeating two of them, the second
one will drop a health drink. Use that if you're low on health.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 10: Observer
==========

Stage: Motel
=====

Requirements: Take Glen's men down
============

Opponents: Glen, Rod, Torque, Seth
=========

Advice: Defeat them all quickly before Glen joins in and don't hit him. If
======  Glen does come in, just try to knock him back while you fight the
        others.

That really big guy with the goatee was Glen. You don't to have him fight you
with the other three fighting you right now. The music will change if Glen
joins in.
Although it's just about impossible for you to defeat all three before Glen
comes, try knocking out atleast two to make it easier.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 11: Proof
=======

Stage: Bar
=====

Requirements: Defeat Jake
============

Opponent: Jake
========

Advice: Make dodge a priority. Try not to grab or do combos often since he can
======  easily dodge them. If he goes for an SPA, you do the same before it 
        hits you. Juggles work nicely in this fight.     

I guess you can call this a boss battle, since Jake is one of the major
characters in the game, and he's actually challenging. Jake uses wrestling,
so expect him to use a lot of
grabs. Make sure that you try to pace yourself and dodge a lot. 
Also, don't do amazing and long combo chains, because unlike the others, Jake
is actually smart enough to counter them. Same goes for grabs. If you grab him,
make sure that you're not making a huge risk, because a grab that you do can be

the difference between your victory or your defeat.
One last thing. Jake's SPA's are quite brutal. Try to counter it with an SPA
right when he's about to hit you.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 12: Unlucky One
==========

Stage: Back Alley
=====

Requirements: Defeat all opponents
============

Opponents: Busta, Spider, Pain Killah, BK
=========

Advice: Double throws helps a bit. If you are overpowered, run.
======

You should know three of these guys. The fourth one, BK, is a guy that was at
the wrong place at the wrong time. So it's four against you. It can get a bit
out of hand at times, but you should have no problem taking them all out.
BK drops a health drink when defeated; use that to your advantage.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 13: Paying the Price
==========

Stage: Hideout
=====

Requirements: Defeat all opponents
============

Opponents: Miguel, Ramon, Jose, Torque
=========

Advice: Same strategy as the previous mission
======

Again, it's four against one. Just a different level and different punching
bags. Ramon should drop a health drink if beaten.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 14: Right Stuff
==========

Stage: Bar
=====

Requirements: Defeat Glen
============

Opponents: Glen, Jake
=========

Advice: Get Glen only; leave Jake alone
======

This is just like the battle with Jake before, only this time it's Glen. Just
try not to hit Jake, or else you'll get two tough bad mothers on you.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 15: Fury
==========

Stage: Motel
=====

Requirements: Defeat Kadonashi
============

Opponents: Kadonashi
=========

Advice: Watch out for his Charge SPA. Run if he does his Charge SPA, or just be
======  careful against him.

Kadonashi has a mean Charge SPA, which enhances his moves list. When he does
this, he will have longer combos and more damaging SPAs'. When he does do a
Charge SPA, he will glow green. This is only temporary, but that doesn't mean
that he wont do it again.
Just get him in small combos and run if you have to. He should be quite a
challenge, but you should be able to handle yourself if you do these steps.
===============================================================================

(You can now use Foward SPA. Look at Brad Hawk's moves list for more info.)

===============================================================================
Mission 16: Repercussions
==========

Stage: Back Alley
=====

Requirements: Defeat all opponents
============

Opponents: BK, Grave Digga
=========

Advice: They only use attacks; they wont do grabs. Dodge their punches. Give
======  your new SPA move a try in this mission (make sure the opponent is
        close to you). Double throws are good.

These two are just push-overs. Since they have a pretty decent neutral combo,
dodging them will help a lot. If they get too bothersome, give your new SPA a
try (you must have three bars in your SPA meter filled). And since there's only
two of them, no one will be there to cancel your double throw, so double throws
come in handy.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 17: Crashing the Party
==========

Stage: Southend
=====

Requirements: Defeat all opponents
============

Opponents: Miguel, Busta, Spider, Em Cee, Ty
=========

Advice: Try keeping your distance; they can easily overpower you. Diving moves
======  are quite useful in this mission

You get five random guys against you. Surprisingly, they can easily take you
down if they work together. That is why you're gonna have to move around a lot
in this mission. What's really useful in this mission are your diving maneuvers
which can easily turn the tables. Since Brad's diving attack can make a
continuous chain, you can knock back a few guys along the way.
Double throws work as well, but it can be very risky, since there's quite a few
that could cancel your double throw and beat the crap out of you.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 18: Hit-and-Run
==========

Stage: Bar
=====

Requirements: Defeat the two opponents before time runs out (1:00)
============

Opponents: Torque, Rod
=========

Advice: Use double throws, SPAs' and diving moves to your advantage.
======

These two should be easy. Only problem is that you have a minute before the
cops come in. So don't take your time. Just give them both hell. 
You'll begin to hear sirens and see flashing lights outside the window when
time's almost up.
Rod will drop an energy drink when beaten, which will charge up your SPA meter
when you drink it.
===============================================================================

(You can now do a Running Power Bomb. Look at Brad's moves list for more info)

===============================================================================
Mission 19: Chinatown Welcome
==========

Stage: Chinatown
=====

Requirements: Defeat all opponents
============

Opponents: Bones, Grave Digga, BK, Booma
=========

Advice: Use diving attacks and SPAs' to your advantage, as well as air juggles.
======  Try out your new throw. Double throws are also a good one, but risky.

These four can be a bit of trouble if you go at them all at once. Do the same
strategy as in Mission 17. If no one else is in your way, try doing the new
Running Power Bomb. If you connect the Running Power Bomb to a wall, you can do
a two hit combo to the upper body.
Grave Digga should be holding a health drink. Defeat him to get it.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 20: The Hungry Wolf
==========

Stage: Warehouse
=====

Requirements: Defeat Tong Yoon
============

Opponent: Tong Yoon
========

Advice: Diving attacks are nice in this fight. Watch out for his SPAs; they
======  can a pain in the arse. Avoid going for lower attacks.

No, it's not Terry Bogard, but the Muay Thai champion of Thailand, Tong Yoon
Bulsook! ... *cricket cricket*
But anyway, Tong Yoon can be one mean mother if you don't know how he fights.
Attacking his lower region is almost completely useless, since he probably has
the toughest legs out of all the Urban Reign cast, so try avoiding down grabs
and down attacks. Although it wouldn't be a bad idea to use these moves every
once in awhile, just try not to rely on them too much.
His SPAs can be quite nasty. Both his upper and side SPA will have him coming
right at you.
Try using diving attacks and juggles to your advantage and you should easily
beat Tong Yoon.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 21: World-Ranked Boxer
==========

Stage: Hideout
=====

Requirements: Defeat all opponents
============

Opponent: Grimm, Glen
========

Advice: Try going for Glen first. Double throws are a good advantage. If all
======  else fails, run.

Grimm can be a bad sore if he teams up with Glen together. Since it's only
Grimm and Glen there, no one will be there to cancel your double throw. 
Glen can be bothersome, so just get rid of him first. If Grimm comes by you,
just hit him back and continue with Glen. If they both are attacking, just use
either a neutral or foward SPA and run. Follow these and you can make it alive
in one piece.
Glen drops an energy drink when defeated; use that if you're in need of an SPA
charge.
===============================================================================

(You can now use a Side SPA. Look at Brad's moves list for more info.)

===============================================================================
Mission 22: Ring of Fire
==========

Stage: Bar
=====

Requirements: Defeat Grimm
============

Opponent: Grimm
========

Advice: Be cautious when Grimm has his Charge SPA on; he should be glowing red.
======  Use your new SPA to your advantage. Juggles can be used as an advantage
        against him.

It's just you and Grimm. He should immediately start off the match with a 
charge SPA that will increase his strength. Don't just start fighting him
carelessly or you will lose quickly. I'm not saying avoid him at all costs,
just don't fight so recklessly.
Your new SPA will help a lot in this fight, since it's Brad's best SPA out of
all the three (in my opinion at least), and does a ten hit combo for that
matter. So if Grimm's doing that huge SPA combo, reply with this SPA. Only 
minor setback is that it requires for mini-bars of the SPA meter to be filled.
And since there is no one to cancel your juggles, you can do simple juggles 
with Grimm before he dodges them. He should be easy to beat if you fight 
strategically instead of just all muscle.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 23: Avenging the Honor
==========

Stage: Back Alley
=====

Requirements: Destroy Zach's lower region
============

Opponent: Zach
========

Advice: Use down throws and down attacks against zach. When Zach's laying on
======  the ground, use a down attack; don't grab while he's on the ground.

This should be fairly easy. All you need to do is use down attacks until his
lower region becomes red. 
Just don't defeat him; defeating him with his lower region not entirely 
destroyed will result in a mission failure.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 24: Helping Hands
==========

Stage: Warehouse
=====

Requirements: Defeat all opponents
============

Opponents: Kadonashi, Tong Yoon
=========

Advice: Try fighting one at a time. If they both gang up on you, run away.
======  Don't bother trying to use a double attack; it's too risky.

You got two boss characters fighting you. This can be very tricky. I prefer
fighting only one at a time, though the choice of who to fight first is yours.
Kadonashi can be hard in this fight while Tong Yoon can just be an annoying 
pest.
Use the same strategies from the previous battles you've had with these guys
and it should work nicely. Just try not to fight them both at once.
Kadonashi will drop a health drink when defeated.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 25: Outnumbered
==========

Stage: Chinatown
=====

Requirements: Defeat all opponents
============

Opponents: Busta, Spider, Em Cee, Nas-Tiii, Pain Killah
=========

Advice: Use double attacks with caution. If outnumbered, run and attack one at
======  time.

Back to the nobody's. Only problem is their numbers, which can be a 
disadvantage for you. But no need to worry. These guys still suck even with a
large pack. Just take them all out. Be careful when attempting to do a double
attack; one of them that's not being attacked can cancel your double attack and
beat you up with his other friends.
Em Cee should drop a health drink when defeated. Nas-Tiii should drop an energy
drink when defeated as well.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 26: Fist to Fist
==========

Stage: Motel
=====

Requirements: Defeat Jake
============

Opponent: Jake
========

Advice: Beware of his grabs when his charge SPA is on; he will do more damaging
======  throws. If he goes down, try not to let him up.

Jake can be one bad mother in this one. Especially his charge SPA. If his 
charge SPA is initiated, he will be glowing green.
Keep combos to a minimal and just make him hit the ground. Try not to give him
mercy and give him all hell.
===============================================================================

(You can now use Air Grapple, which allows you to grab opponents while they are
in mid air)

===============================================================================
Mission 27: The Blitz
==========

Stage: Hideout
=====

Requirements: Defeat all opponents
============

Opponents: Rod, Torque, Seth, Glen
=========

Advice: Use your new Air Grapple to your advantage. Use double throws with
======  caution. Diving attacks and throws can be a life saver. If overpowered,
        run.

They're all are going to attack you at once, so don't just run in there. Using
diving attacks and diving grabs can be very helpful in this fight. Double
attacks can also help out if no one cancels it.
And try out your new Air Grab. The grab differs depending on where you grab the
mid-air opponent and he/she is positioned. For example, If you grab an opponent
by his legs with back facing down, you'll be able to perform a power bomb (and
running power bomb if you push x).
Try not to let them overpower you and make use of your SPAs
Rod should drop a health drink when defeated.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 28: Who's Your Daddy?
==========

Stage: Hideout
=====

Requirements: Defeat Glen
============

Opponent: Glen
========

Advice: If charged up, go for grabs; strikes will not make him stagger and can
======  attack you normally even if being beaten. Use his pipe and make good
        use of it.

Just you and Glen. He'll immediately start off with a charge SPA. When this
happens, do not use strikes. I'll repeat: DO NOT USE STRIKES. Strikes will have
no affect his animation and can fight back easily. So when he is glowing
yellow, go for grabs.
(Quick Note: SPAs will have the same affect as normal strikes, so avoid using
them as well)
As you can see, he also has a pipe. What you need to do is damage a region and
sooner or later he will drop it. Push L1 to pick up and drop weapons. Weapons
are like regular attacks and grabs, having the directional attacks. Push both X
and square to throw it, although it is possible that he can catch it.
So here's a simple layout to defeat Glen:

Go for grabs if has his charge SPA on
Use his pipe against him
After his charge SPA is gone, give him hell

Follow these three steps and you will easily win.
===============================================================================

(You can now use charge SPA. Brad's charge SPA will increase his offense for a
period of time. Charge SPA requires half an SPA meter)

===============================================================================
Mission 29: Small Fry
==========

Stage: Motel
=====

Requirements: Defeat all opponents
============

Opponents: Spider, Busta, Pain Killah
=========

Advice: Use your new SPA to your advantage. Double attacks are a nice helper.
====== 

These are just three nobody's, just like what the title of this mission says,
"Small Fry".
Your new SPA will really come in handy, since it will increase your offense for
a period of time.
Just fight these three like you normally would and they should go down easily.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
Mission 30: Showdown
==========

Stage: Scrapyard
=====

Requirements: Defeat Dwayne
============

Opponent: Dwayne
========

Advice: Use everything you've learned to defeat Dwayne.
======

At last, you meet Dwayne. He can be quite the tricky fighter. He will begin the
===============================================================================
fight with a charge SPA, which, just like yours, increases his offense. So try
not to let him get the upper hand at that point. Use all the techniques you've
learned and take him down.
===============================================================================

===============================================================================
                               END OF CHAPTER

7. Character Profiles/Moves Lists

This section is for each character of Urban Reign. Each of these characters
have a unique fighting style. Some may be the same as others, but due to their
different stats, they may not have the same strategy. Anyway, let's start with
the main characters.
And for all of you Tekken and Soul Edge/Calibur fans out there, you may see
that a lot of the fighters in Urban Reign have the same moves and animations
as those in the games.
Hell, I'll even give a short description to their fighting style, because, well
I'm a huge fan of the Martial Arts and street fighting, so I know some
knowledge in the way a lot of the characters fight.
And a legend for those who may have trouble reading the moves list:

^=Up
v=Down
<=Left
>=Right
+=Add to command. For example, ^+Circle means push up and Circle together.

a) Main Characters

=========
Brad Hawk
=========
Fighting Style: All-Round
Height: 6'/185 cm
Weight: 192 lbs/87 kg
DoB: n/a
Age: n/a
Ranking: *****
Gang: None/Brawler-for-Hire

A brawler who's come to town at the request of Shun Ying Lee. Not much is known
about his past, but his strength shows he has extensive fighting experience.

The main protagonist of Urban Reign. For all of you anime and video game fans 
out there, you may notice that Steven Blum is Brad's voice actor. Blum has done
many voices, most famous for Spike Speigal from the anime, Cowboy Bebop. Brad
has a tough look. Shaved head, rugged face, pimpin' jacket and strong fighting
style.

All-Round seems to have an influence in the mixture of Boxing, Kickboxing, 
Wrestling and Street Fighting. Nothing can really be told about this style,
because it's a style that the fighter creates on his own.

as to how to write an FAQ/Walkthrough

==================================================
Kevin Dinglasan (KDKM0506/InspectorK/IJCSpeedKing)
==================================================
  For writing the first and only Urban Reign FAQ and giving me a motivation
into making my own FAQ. If you're reading this right now, I just want to let

Michael Posa (Posa/-BIO-HaZaRd)

  For being my best friend out there and giving me a good break from writing
this faq and playing challenge mode with me. As well as helping me in other
games like getting 100% on every difficulty in The Warriors (though I did most
of it on my own) and getting me almost all of the dog tags in MGS2 and so on.
  
See ya on Omega Strain tonight. :D

  I thank Namco for making this exceptional game. I love how they made the
physics and animation so superb and almost unbeatable to any other game I've
played. Just goes to show you that games don't have to be overhyped to show
how great the game is.
  Now if you guys made Urban Reign 2 or Urban Reign for the PSP, then I'll be 
even more happy, and you're darn right I'll be writing an FAQ for it as well!

=======================
You, the reader/cheater
=======================
  Why shouldn't give my thanks to you people? What's the point in writing FAQs
if no one's gonna give a crap reading about it? Even though this is a small
game not known by many in the public, it's a nice stepping stone for me. And
hell, I love this freakin' game. ^__^
