Helpful hints | Act 1 - Chapter 1 Bionic Commando Guide

Last update: Wednesday, May 11, 2016


- Bionic Commando is a rather challenging game, so if you don't think of yourself as an experienced player you should consider playing on normal difficulty level. This will allow you to avoid plenty of stressful situations and you won't have to repeat large sections of the game several times. Sadly if you decide to choose these settings you'll lose a chance to grab at least 175 achievement points.

- I would strongly recommend that you spend a lot of time practicing how to use your bionic arm and how to swing on a rope properly. It may not seem that important at first, but later on you'll have to be very precise while trying to survive or collect bonus items.

- It's always a good idea to defeat enemy units by throwing objects at them, so you should consider using these moves as soon as they've been unlocked. If you want to use firearms at all costs HIKER is always a good idea, however you should also be on a look out for grenade launchers, rocket launchers and standard grenades.

- Remember to STAY AWAY from irradiated zones, even if the radiation is weak. One false step or one big jump can change that in a manner of seconds and in some cases you won't have enough time to escape to safety.

- Each time you've entered a new area of the map take your time to look around. Doing this will allow you to find valuable supplies, eliminate additional enemy units or to complete optional challenges.

- Find a compromise between eliminating enemy units and completing new challenges. I would also recommend that you go through the list of available assignments each time you've started playing the game after you took a long break from it.


Sadly Bionic Commando uses user-unfriendly save system, mostly because you won't be allowed to collect hidden bonuses and complete unfinished achievements by replaying certain levels. You'll have to collect and win everything as you progress for the first time, so it's always important to play well and to be very thorough. Make sure not to leave certain areas until you did everything that could have be done. Thankfully the exits are always easy to spot, because the game will use mostly tunnels to transport you between levels.

Early during the course of the campaign mode you shouldn't complain about how often your status is saved, however later on this becomes an issue. Bear in mind that each time you die you'll not only have to start playing from the last checkpoint. You'll also have to collect bonus items again, as well as win optional challenges (even if you've already won achievements tied directly to them). I would recommend to be extra careful while exploring areas with a lot of water, cliffs and radiation. The same goes with collecting some of the bonus items. Notice that in some levels you can control when you want the game to be saved by using relay stations right away or after you've explored the area, killed all enemy units and collected all hidden items.


Bionic Commando gives you a chance to gain access to a bonus content, however you must have Bionic Commando Rearmed installed on your hard drive. Here are the requirements:

Prototype gun (it will replace your standard pistol in Bionic Commando) - start Bionic Commando Rearmed and during the game find the FSA icon (Area A level).

Purple matrix - start Bionic Commando Rearmed and during the game collect twelve Yashichi's. Afterwards go to Area 0 sector and head through an opened door.

Retro costume (it will replace Spencer's standard costume in Bionic Commando) - make sure that you've installed Bionic Commando Rearmed on your hard drive.

You can acquire codes in Bionic Commando Rearmed by going through the Database section in the main menu. Write the codes on a card or memorize them. Start Bionic Commando, go to Options -> Extras -> Unlock Features and enter the codes QUICKLY (otherwise they won't work).
