|Buried In A Lunchbox|
Defeat General Darian Fought in E1B7; you destroy all the switches in the arena and he eventually opens the door and comes out of his central room. If you manage to get the Asbestos armor in his room, the rockets he shoots barely damage you so it should be an easy fight if you get it.
|Not A Hallucination|
Defeat Sebastian “Doyle” Krist Fought in E2B7; Krist fires rockets and discs at you. Use circle strafing and dipping in and out behind cover for this boss.
|Just A Rolling Trashcan|
Defeat the NME Fought in E3B7; The Nasty Metallic Enforcer fires homing rockets, discs, drunk missiles and a volley of fireballs. Make sure to move constantly, searching the arena for as many resources as possible and avoid getting cornered since this boss is no joke.
|A Bad Egg|
Defeat El Oscuro without eliminating all of his eggs
|I Hate Snakes|
Defeat El Oscuro while eliminating his eggs El Oscuro has three boss levels for the entire fight, E4A7, E4A9 and E4A10. In E4A7, the strategy for this boss is to avoid shooting him because he retaliates with a similar attack if you shoot him. You wait until he turns into a snake and runs off. In E4A9, you just chase him through the level as the title suggests. But E4A10 is where the real fight is.
- To get the bad ending and the A Bad Egg achievement, you have to kill El Oscuro as normal in the arena in the middle without destroying all the eggs in the level. (El Oscuro can only be damaged when it’s over a firepit.)
- To get the good ending and the I Hate Snakes achievement, you have to kill all the eggs in the level, which are all located in three separate rooms throughout the final level. Also eggs can not be killed by bullets, only by rockets, staffs, etc.
- To get to the third egg room, you either have to have the Flight powerup enabled and fly over the wall, or use the FireBomb and Asbestos armor to look down, fire at your feet and rocket jump.
Secret Exits, Secret Items and more Secret Achievements.
Finish any level with all enemies killed and all secrets found Best done in a small level. The game only will tell you if you got everything on the level results screen so be thorough.
Prelude To A Kill
The first secret exit in the game does not have an achievement attached to it. In E1A1 of “The HUNT Begins” there is an elevator behind a push block at the beginning of the level that only opens after 3 minutes on the clock. It also closes after 5 minutes so get there quickly. In the elevator room, there’s a sequence with GADs and switches which opens up a side room in the elevator area which leads to the secret exit.
The secret exit leads to three bonus levels from “The HUNT Begins Deluxe Edition”
|Wall to Wall|
Find the entrance to “Wall to Wall” Found in E1A3 – The Fourth Door of “The HUNT Begins”. In the final room with the exit, there’s a touchpad on the ground behind some barrels which opens a side room. Get past the numerous traps to get to the secret exit.
|Turn of the Screw|
Find the entrance to “Turn of the Screw” Found in E1A3 – Burned and Amazed. In approximately the bottom right corner of the map, you find a jump pad into a flying powerup. Use the powerup to fly over nearby spike traps, over a pillar, fire and other traps to get to the secret exit.
Find the entrance to “Elevator Trouble” Found in E2A5 – Rocky Plateau. This level is a pain in the neck but the secret exit makes it easier. The secret exit is opened via touchpad in the north part of the map in an open area nearby the GAD lift. It opens a side path in the middle area to the secret exit.
|Eight Ways to Hell|
Find the entrance to “Eight Ways to Hell” Found in E3A6 – Movin’ Walls. Right on the tile before the exit door, there’s a touchplate that opens up a nearby secret with another touchplate which opens another nearby section. You have to open a nearby pushwall with a Godmode powerup to survive being crushed and to get through a group of enforcers guarding the secret exit.
Find the entrance to “Switched Around” Found in E4A4 – Diamonds & Rust. Pick up Asbestos Armor and a Firebomb in order to get through a pathway of fireballs and blade traps. You then have to rocket jump over a smaller wall to reach the secret exit.
Find the Developer Ball Found in E2A6 – The Four-Way Chamber. Close to the beginning of the level, to the right of the triangle room there’s a secret pushwall which opens up to a hazardous path which leads a small room with a bunch of Ankhs. You have to step on one of the touchpads in the path in order to make the room accessible as well. There’s another pushwall inside which leads to the red Oscuro Key. Later in the level you see a small room with a Red door which has the Developer Ball inside.
Find the Incredible Ball Found in E3A3 – Dead in Five Seconds. In the maze near the beginning of the level, there is a pushwall close to a Ballistikraft which leads to a lot of fire and then the Developer Ball.
Find the Power Ball Found in E4A6 – Circles of Fire. After you activate a touchpad, the fire walls close off the entrance so you have to run back out before they close. Backtrack to an earlier room with a lot of Ankhs and a wall has opened to reveal the last Developer Ball.
Find Scott’s Mystical Head Found in E2A3 – The Room. In an area with a Flight powerup, a bunch of spikes and a switch, there’s a jump pad leading to a catwalk that drops off to Bulletproof Armor and two extra lives. On the catwalk you can walk into a specific part of the sky which won’t kill you and leads to a secret area with Scott’s head. Use the automap to find the passage.
The next two levels require cheats, so type in “DIPSTICK” during normal gameplay to enable them and then type in GOTO to access a level select.

Enter a warp-only level
Free a moving wall from the confines of reality Go to “E4A13 – This Causes an Error!” and wait for something glorious.
And that’s it! I hope this helps as I wanted this to be easily digestible while not being too cumbersome. Whether old fans or new, this is a pretty nice port so it deserves a decent guide.
