It was published by Sierra Entertainment, and released through Fox Interactive for PC and Apple Macintosh computers in 2001. It is a sequel to Aliens versus Predator (1999); both games are based on the characters of the Alien and Predator media franchises as well as the Alien vs. Predator crossover series.

note: these cheats work only for the european version of the game

[edit] Face Hugger Tip

When you play as the facehugger in the first part of the alien campign you have to get a person by themself to get a host. Keep going until you reach the guy sleeping in a chair. Don't waste your time listening to people talk or waiting for one guy to leave. Just keep going until you reach the guy sleeping in a chair.


[edit] More of a Strategy

When fighting a tough character as the Predator (i.e. the Queen), and are low on health and/or energy, use the energy pistols secondary fire to stun them. This will give you just enough time to heal yourself or use the energy sift.


[edit] Hints

pickups (pickups are destructible). If you are surrounded or trapped, use the burst fire.

None of these contain anything of value.


[edit] Unlock all misions

Go to your AvP directory and find the folder "Profiles", in the "Profiles" folder you will find a text ".txt" file with your player name/s.

Open your player text ".txt" file and scroll down till you find the caracter name such as "[Alien]", under each name you will see the the following:

"LevelStatus = (DWORD)284646098", now where the bunch off numbers are just replace them with the folowing numbers, each caracter has diferent numbers, so do like so:

[Alien]

LevelStatus = (DWORD)2846460546

[Marine]

LevelStatus = (DWORD)2846460556

[Predator]

LevelStatus = (DWORD)2846460576

[edit] Killing the Alien Queen easily

When playing as a Predator, select your shoulder cannon then charge a shot by holding the Right Mouse Button. This will consume a small amount of energy, but you can recharge it by pressing T. After that, the game automatically returns to the shoulder cannon. Notice that the shot is still loaded, and causes a lot of damage. Go to the Queen at a safe distance with electric view and fire. Then, just keep moving in circles walking backwards and shooting without charging the shoulder cannon. When your energy is out, use the spear weapon to finish it. A few blows should do the trick. After that, kill the other aliens that appear then move to her head. Use your blades and keep attacking the head. It will increase your trophy number.


[edit] Alien follow-the-leader

This trick will cause an Alien to follow you a short distance, and usually turn its back and appear to watch for enemies. Enter a level that has Aliens. It can be any level, even a non-Alien one, as long as you use a mpmorph code to turn into an Alien. When you get to a point where there us not a combat situation and there is an Alien around, get near it. Use your Claw attack on the ground. Try not to hurt the Alien, then quickly run or walk backwards to make sure the Alien is following you. This strategy is not foolproof. Note: Some Aliens, especially in the Alien Campaign levels, seem to have a limited "territory." Also, sometimes in the Marine levels an Alien will follow you and end up standing in the steam and kill itself. Also, an Alien on the ground will not follow you onto the ceiling; it will stand by the wall.


[edit] Strange guard voices

Enable the mpmillertime code and go to any level. Go near a guard and he will have a high voice and sounded as if he is drunk.


[edit] Quick minigun fire

In single player or multi-player mode, select the minigun and press [Secondary Fire]. The minigun will "warm up" and constantly spin the barrels until press [Secondary Fire] again or switch to another weapon. While this feature is active, the minigun will fire immediately after pressing [Fire] -- it no longer needs to "spin up" or "spin down", and will also fire more accurately. Using this technique will allow you to easily wipe out the Praetorian Aliens or Assault Predators. Note: In multi-player mode, only the Corporate AT officer can use the minigun as a set weapon, and they are very rare weapons in a normal multi-player game.


[edit] Queen head bite

Start any mission, then enable the mpmorph drone code. Next, go up to a civilian and get into head bite position, but do not kill him. Enable the mpmorph queen code. Note: The head bite will be your only attack; use it carefully.


[edit] Disc with a no disc predator

In multi-player mode join or make (recommended) a small level. Bunker is good. Be a predator which has a disc when you spawn. Throw the disc somewhere you can quickly get too and press [F1] to change to a no disc predator. There is only one, which is called Assault. When you spawn again, press the disc retrieval key (default is F). The disc should actually come to you. You will have the disc but for some reason you cannot use it, even though the item indicator shows that you picked it up.
