Hint - Worm Achievement
There is an achievement that has confounded multiple IGN editors while playing Lost Planet. Since I earned it, I'll save you some headache and explain how you defeat (but cannot kill) the Giant Worm.

The Worm (and you will know him when you meet him) can never be killed (only temporarily defeated). Know that right off the bat. He has big green glowing weak spots that you must shoot. Keep in mind, the Worm has two ends and sometimes shows the head (he charges forward when the head is up) and his ass (when he fires missiles out his bum). You need to do damage on both ends.

The most important thing is to keep running across the snow plains until you are away from the small flying creatures. Once you are away from them, it is just you and the worm. Aside from doing damage and being annoying, the littly flying bastards often get in the way of rocket launcher attacks. So get clear from them and then fight the Worm.

There is no special animation when the worm is beaten. The only way you will know is that the music stops. You don't even have to have all his weak points destroyed to "defeat" him. However, in about two minutes, he returns completely healed. If the music has stopped, you have defeated the worm and you can stop fighting him.

When you defeat him you will not see an Achievement Unlock. Instead, you must complete the mission to get the achievement. This is why many at IGN spent significant time trying to defeat this beast again and again, not realizing the reward was already netted.

Hint - Final Boss
In the final boss fight, your actions are as follows:

# YELLOW button moves your Vital Suit upwards
# GREEN button moves your Vital Suit downwards
# BLUE button fires pulse lasers
# LEFT TRGR fires lasers or does a large sideways cut if you hold it
# RIGHT TRGR does a saber stab or does a vertical cut if you hold it

The final bosses weaknesses are the large cutting attacks activated by your TRIGGERs. Just get in close to him and keep cutting him unitl he dies and be sure not to get caught in his purple laser attack. Don't bother using the pulse lasers since they don't do anything to the boss except to destroy the missiles fired at Wayne. Personally I think the best cutting attack to use is the sideways cut as you rarely miss him. The vertical cut can miss if the boss moves sideways.

Rank Exploit
So you wanna reach L50 on ranked matches and get that achievement out of the way? Set up a private invite with a friend and make a ranked team elimination or elimination match game.

Meet up in the specified session and start the match with two people. Now go around the level takeing over data pods without killing each other. Shuttling back and forth stealing data pods gives you points (since having them taken from you doesn't cost you anything, unlike dying).

If you do this at level 1, you're likely to gain around 15 levels in a game set for 10,000 points.
