F.A.Q. for Ubisoft’s “Beyond Good and Evil”:

These are  FAQ tips, not a complete walkthrough. 
If you need more detail, read my very own and very illustrated walk-through.

If you need 
Rahly's savegame editor email me. 

Available Subjects:

* Some general questions

Where do I find these ...


* Code troubles


* PA1 listing


* Meca-Impulser listing.


* MDisk listing


* Pearl Troubles (+list)


* Animal troubles (+list)

  * Help, I keep getting killed! 
(= All the boss fights)


General Questions.

1. How do I move the hovercraft?

bullet Read the Mdisk in Pey’j’s workshop.
bullet Then push the big generator to the end of the dock.
bullet After entering the hovercraft, use the same direction buttons that you used for Jade.

2. Where is this place?

bullet Use the compass function when in the hovercraft (=same as buddy action button) and look around.
bullet The names of the locations will show up at the bottom of the screen.
bullet Black Island and the factory are at the top of your map.
bullet The 3rd race and the slaughterhouse are at the bottom of your map. You'll need the jump kit to cross the laser barrier at the lighthouse.

3. Pey'j keeps whining about PA1s.

bullet Give him one by opening your inventory and pointing at one.
bullet Click the action button to take it.
bullet Move the arrow to Pey'j. Click again to drop it.
bullet You can also do this with health food items.

4. I can’t get out of the factory. I need a second fuse. 

bullet Go back to the generator room where you found the first fuse.
bullet The second fuse is at the back of the generator.
bullet If you did take the 2nd fuse and it disappeared from your inventory: see BUGS section.

5. Where do I find the codes for the Beluga?

bullet Open your inventory and point the arrow to the jet boots.
bullet Use the “info” button that shows at the right bottom corner of the screen, not the action button. 
bullet Use  your controller to move the shoes around. The codes are on the bottom of the shoes.

6. Mammago’s garage doesn’t have the stabilizer.

bullet It will only become available in the game, when you have visited IRIS after the slaughterhouse mission.


1. What is the "Internet code" that I see on every savegame screen?

2. Where do I find the code for the cabinet in the Akuda Bar?

bullet This cabinet holds MDisk #13, which has the puck game on it. 
bullet Log in at Ubisoft’s Darkroom and enter the save game Internet code.  
bullet If / when you have enough pictures and pearls, you will be invited to take an online mission. 
bullet When you complete that mission, you will receive the code.

3. Can’t you just give me the code?

bullet No. There is a different set of  codes for every new game you start.    
bullet Alternatively, you can give yourself MDisk #13 (and a lot more) with Rahly's savegame editor. (Cheat!)

4. She won't give me the code to get out of the Slaughterhouse!

bullet That means your mission isn't finished yet.
bullet You need to get all 3 pictures for the report before you can leave this area.

BGAE: The Big Fights:


bullet *I keep getting killed! The boss fight on Black Island.
bullet Use Pey’j jet boot attack as soon as the monster appears.
bullet That allows Jade to close in and beat him up.
bullet If close enough,  hit the monster as it comes out or goes into a hole.
bullet When the monster is in the air, use super-attack to hit him in the face just before the green flames reach Jade, and as often as possible thereafter.
bullet When Pey’j cries “He’s weakening”, you need only one more hit to finish the fight. 


bullet *I keep getting killed! The REAPER fight. 
bullet 1. take a picture as soon as you can get into camera mode.
bullet 2. When you get out of picture mode, run forward and hit him with all you have. He'll jump away.
bullet 3. Just before he lands, switch to camera mode, and start shooting disks. He'll jump again.
bullet 4. a. If he jumps to a different ledge (remains in distance view), just follow him in camera view and keep shooting disks at him as fast as you can. If you are late, he'll shoot green fireballs at you. One will always hit you if you don't move before they get to you, so move sideways a little bit to avoid them, or keep shooting for extra damage and take a small hit yourself.
bullet 4.b. If you get a view from above during a jump, he'll jump towards you and will land right on top of you and hit you hard. Run away - any direction will do - and switch to camera view just before he lands, and start shooting. If you are close enough to hit his eye, but just far enough that he can't hit you, you do more damage and he'll jump away immediately. If you are a bit further away, he'll just freeze. Switch out of camera mode, run forward and hit him as fast as you can.
bullet 5. After you've hit him enough times, he'll stumble and jump towards the middle of the ramp and fall down in the water.
bullet Once you get the pattern of switching views correct, you can finish him off in just about 1 minute.


bullet *I keep getting killed! The boss fight in the factory.
bullet Jade needs to go to the monster's leg and  hit it.
bullet Use HH super-attack and he will hit the leg at the other side.
bullet It doesn't matter who goes first, but HH and Jade need to work closely together so that the second attack happens when one of the legs is already in the air. 
bullet When that happens, the monster will fall down, and the cage will open.
bullet Switch to camera mode and shoot a disk at the pearl. Switch back to normal view.
bullet You need to hit the pearl 3 times to end the fight.



bullet *I keep getting killed! Getting past the mining-bot to enter the slaughterhouse.
bullet Wait near the fence until the floating droid is between you and the tunnel.
bullet Push the pedal to the metal and drive through the middle circle of light a bit off-center
If you go dead center, the torpedo will drop right on top of you.
bullet Keep speeding into the tunnel and go close by the sticky defense mine.
bullet The torpedo will blow up that mine.
bullet Repeat 3 times in all.
bullet The last one will be a close call, just slam the hovercraft into the wall to the right of the last mine.



bullet *I keep getting killed! The tractor beam.
bullet You need to shoot with target lock at those lights that light up red on his tail end.
bullet The configuration of his defenses and the lights that you need to shoot at will change 8 times before this part is over.
bullet The center lights where the laser beams come from aren't lighted all the time.
You can't hit them when you see the beams, so you have only a few seconds to target and shoot them when they come on.
bullet Make sure you look at both sides of the ship to make sure you get them all.
As long as the configuration remains the same, you missed at least one light.



bullet *I keep getting killed! The Spiderbug end fight on Selene.
bullet 1. Kill the sarcophagi. Use super-attack as much as possible.
Once they're gone, Spiderbug moves forward. Use super-attack to hit it.
Pey'J is taken. 
bullet 2. Use HH super-attack to throw the Pey’j clones at the crystal spikes. Kill any sarcophagi that show up. Once there is an opening in the crystal barrier, throw a Pey'j clone at Spiderbug. HH is taken. 
bullet 3. 1-on-1 Part1.
bullet Spiderbug always attacks in the same pattern.
bullet You need to complete the pattern only once without getting hit to move on.
bullet The pattern is: Left - back - right - left - back - right - above - front - right.
bullet When Spiderbug appears above, you can: 
bullet a/. dodge and attack again
bullet b/. super-attack: no margin for error, but very effective if you get it right. Make sure that after the sideways movement, you take your hand of the move keys and start charging the super attack right away. Fire as soon as you glow. If you keep a move button activated, Jade will keep moving in that direction, and you won't be charged up by the time he hits you.
bullet c/. switch to camera mode, fire a disk, and switch back to normal mode. Requires some fast pushing of buttons, but also very effective.
bullet 4. Kill the HH clones and the sarcophagi. If you use super-attack well, Spiderbug will not be able to hit you.
bullet 5. The controls are reversed. With PC, you can turn the keyboard upside down and play the arrows instead of WASD. Kill the sarcophagi. 
bullet 6. 1-on-1 Part2.
bullet The new pattern is: Left - right - left - right - above + right?- back? - above? - front?.
bullet The second half of this second pattern (after +) changes from game to game, and even within the same game. Quick reaction is key to success.
bullet Again, you need to complete the pattern only once without getting hit to end the game.
