OK.... So my brother was being a bit of an idiot and trying to squish me with the race in the beginning of the level, and while standing on the race start and removing stickers from the sticker Swich, I noticed that the race start moves back up when the sticker is removed.
From the top of the checkpoint, you can Sprint and jump onto the nearby building. Run to the other Side, Stand on the Top of the door, and get as much speed as you can, then Jump onto the other door. You are now above the area that contains two spotlights.But wait! If you jump on the Turret in the backmost layer, then onto the spotlight, you can skip even more of teh level! You can skip the first turret, and if you are good at jumping and have good timing, you can skip the two after it.
So, now that Act 3 can be renamed to the Middle eastern Mirror's edge, Ill tell you why I told you about it.
The three Turrets you can skip, are THE hardest ones to get by without killing them. I remember sneaking past those, trying to get the thrifty painter trophy, geting by the second and getting ZAAPED by the last turret. Repeatedly. I NEVER want to see any of you guys go throught that hardship. Ill try to post some pics or something.

But what TRULY is amazing about the tops of these buildings, One, you can see A TON of dark matter, which is fun in its own way. Two, Mm has even detailed the areas up here, that the players will rarely ever see. Take a look at this, Especially if you need the thrifty painter trophy.

I managed to do thrifty painter without firing a shot until the boss,minus the platforms you had to let loose :)

I know, I did too, but those first three turrets... man.....
took me a couple retrys, and a lot of sack casualties, but I got it!!!.......... eventually.
I just hate having to think that other people are trying to do it the hard way. And the part about getting 'out of' the level, thats kinda interesting.

lol How many paintballs do you got, to get the trophy... I went through last night, did that trick, was extremely consevitive with my shooting, dodging most turrets that I could, and only shooting when I had to.. The two tanks before the boss, are they are nessicary kills right? and maybe I need to work on my aim, missed a few times but not many... but yea at the end I didnt get my trophy.

Am i the only one who can't do this?... :S Here is what i do, maybe you can point out what i did wrong. As soon as i start the level i head to the solid eye sticker switch, i stamp it and then the start platform come down, then i remove the sticker and nothing happen...

Anyone can help with this?... I feel a bit ridiculous with this one...

Maybe it has something to do with 1.08.

were you on the race starter?
If you were, we got a problem.
AND by the way.
The two tanks in act 3 are mandatory EVADES.
You can get by them by waiting in the spot with the bubble vendors untill the first tank comes up, jump infront of it, and follow it. jump infront of one of the building's doors, wait for the second one, rince, repeat.
You can jump into the background and wait untill the tank is to your left, then pop out and run right.

The ONLY mandatory kills are the boss and the platforms that you shoot the dissolve and they fall down.



EDIT: Still works.

too bad I don't have the MGS pack yet.. I really have to ask my parents if I can get it :(
but well, I tried it also on the 1st level of the king, but, it's not like in the mgs level, it's just attached to a bunch of dark matter, but It's impossible to skip a part of the level..

yea really pesture your parents for it.. the levels are pretty cool, but even without them, the tools and materials alone are well worth the 5.99 ? or however much it was.

but then again uncle sam pays all my bills.

No, only on the MGS levels, because there are buildings to jump onto.

The only dark matter I saw were 2 pistons with red lights on the end. What do you mean by a "ton" of dark matter? And I didn't see anything detailed up there.

Compared to the ammount of dark matter I use, that IS a ton.

haha sorry about that, and also, seeing as you rarely see Mm Dark matter, that seems like a LOT of dark matter.

Does anyone have a picture of that place on top? I want to see that "A LOT of dark matter." I want to see how MM does their switches and stuff.

I uploaded a pic of it, but I found it in a different way. If you use the Rocket-thing that propels you upwards and to the right to take you as far LEFT as possible, you can approach it from the other side.

ya, that works too, just tried it.
