Sly 2: Band of Thieves Tips

when you do operation canada games make sure no one after that in bentley's boss battle and i mean NO ONE!! Turns off your PS2! I Screwed up my hole game because of that and had to start over.
of course after every mission your game automaticlly saves. never quit on the boss level. if you do the final mission will be erased along with the boss battle. this could be possible in the other levels too. don't do this otherwise the hole file will be screwed and you'll have to restart the hole game.

If you get hypnotized by the Contessa you can do either of the following to avoid getting hit.
Spin the analog stick in a circle to keep from walking into spiders.
Fall off the roof top, repeatedly. Each time the contessa pulls you back up and she won't have enough time to hit you.

1. you can keep throwing the bombs at the bear but it might take a long time
2. use the temporal lock to freeze the bear and run to him and DROP BOMBS.
I know that this job is very difficult, but I fiddled around with it long enough to discover a super easy and unintentional way to do it!
First thing after the Binocucom chat, grab the bug and climb up the vine on the pillar. Jump onto the slippery vines and keep sliding until you get to the big tree thing by the safe house. DO NOT FALL OFF!!! You will notice that the bug starts making noise. Ignore it for now, because you'll need this to help you later on. Once you get to the tree, climb up to the top and continue to slide over to the safe house and to the big tree to the left of it. If there's a snake on the safe house, kill it immediately or you will have to start over. Once you reach the tree, slide over to the huge rocking tower and climb up to the top. Don't worry too much about falling. Once you reach the top of the tower, slide over to the stone arch-thing and then to the last tree before you reach Rajan's office. Jump up to the high stone platform. If there's a guard up there, quickly knock them off as soon as possible. DO NOT pick a fight with him. When that's done, jump down to the bridge by where one or two flashlight guards are. Have the bug's noise attract them, and then use the nearby mushroom to jump back up to the higher area before they see you. While the guards are checking the area, quickly jump down to the area on the other side of the bridge and run over to where you can hug the wall, but be sure to let the bug get some water before you go. Jump up to the higher are, kill any guards up there (with the bug in the little pool up there) and head into Rajan's office (with the bug, of course). Once you're in, you don't have to worry about starting over. Just put the bug into position, and you're done!
PM me if you are unclear on any of the given info.
As he starts to follow you whack him with your cane. be sure to hide behind the green cans when he trys to hit you with his charge.
punch him a few times and avoid his sticks. then when he sends in goons whack them and go back to rajan. if rajan uses lightning in the water either stand of a lily pad or double jump over it.
activate the hypno-boxes and then turn them off.
when she hypnotizes you ignore it and hit her with your cane. avoid the bomb spiders and keep hitting her.
Buttons activate the traps. lead jean bison into every one.
Shoot the rings and clock-la. then jump across the debris with your para-glider. after clock-la will fall. have murray jump across the lasers and pick up clock-la's mouth. then have bentley jump over the lasers pick up the hate chip and bomb clock-la's mouth.

You know the Alarm Clock is mandatory in Episode 7, right? You can\'t get the guards in the cave, without it. If you forget, you can pause and type in the code for the TOM, and you can still do it without the alarm clock.
This, erm, sly reference occures in sly 2:band of thieves. after beating chapter one, return to it and go back to the disco where you used benley to destroy the giant glitter ball.Once there, go to the dance floor and use your binoculars to look at the large picture above the stage where the instruments are. you'll see a man holding a guitar, who is actually the game's music manager.
<sup>As many know, there is a bear lurking around the two Canada levels, and it serves as one of the most dangerous enemies in the game. Why? Because apparently, the bear cannot be killed by any of the three characters, no matter what.
There is actually many ways of killing the bear, which you can find throughout the Sly 2 Forum. However, there is one way of killing the bear that little know about, that is by far the easiest method.
Murray (not Sly and Bentley; forget about them right now) can simply kill the bear. Although it may take some patience, you just need to punch the bear 9-10 times in a row, and guess what? The bear will actually die. Unfortunately, the bear quickly respawns afterwards in Level 7 (I'm not so sure about Level 6.) This little known fact will make playing as Murray in Canada a hell of a lot more fun.
TRIVIA: In Level 6, there is a bear found outside both the bear cave and inside the bear cave, so to make things even more fun...get into a fight with the two bears at the same time. Can a pink hippo take two giant bears...?</sup>
when you beat that episode, laser redirection place you can still hit the switch if you do don't die in there if you die a certain amount of times you see that the laser is pointing down make sure your memory card is out before you do this.Now go out of the level to the episode menu go to the episode you were on and you will see that it isn't 100% anymore.you can do this glitch if you want to do the last half of the episode again.
After gettin 100%, enter the cheat for the tutorial level, and use mega jump to get onto the plane.(attached to cieling.) Now mega jump into the area with the glass roof, towards the fossil, and double jump when u start fallin. Et voila!
(P.S.) Occaisionally he will have one leg bent like its broken! Ouch!

Be careful guys, in Arpegios Blimp there is a bottle on one of those little lights on strings that u can spiral jump on (its near a big fan thing).
If you keep spiral jumping to many times on that light, you will get at a point where the light (now invisible) will fall and take you also (you being on her) and you will fall and fall and fall , you will literally PASS THE GAME FLOOR and continue falling in a black background.
It happened by accident in my playstation, with my Game CD, and eventually I did it on purpose on my cousin's playstion with his game CD.
It was scary the first time, but kind of funny the second.
In both of Rajan's levels there are barrels of spice. If you don't jump while swinging the cane on the ones on the bottom then they will break, leaving one or two floating barrels.

In level 4 go inside the prison walls and go to the front gate, if there is a guard there make him aware of your presence and stay there and don't move. The guard won't try to attack you and sly [or bently] will be half invisible and half visible!!!

this is an easy way to get mega jump. Go to level 8 and do the job where you first use mega jump. Once it shows mega jump on your power up screen and change it from L2 to L1 and after the job you won't have the pack but you can still mega jump

Even after finishing this episode, if you return in that place of the laser mission(where the bottle vault is) the game will return to 35%!!
So be careful, get the bottles before finishing this episode... unless you would like to redo it...
you can do this with any job with sly that first goes into binocucom. All you have to do is double jump over the job and press the triangle button so you go spinning down on the job and sly's hat will be facing up
P.S. this will not work with any job that doesn't go into binocucom and this will also not work in sly 3 or 1

First,you need the tom and time rush gadgets from other cheats.Second, equip them both on diffrent buttons. Third, throw the tom gadget then quickly before the tom gadget hits the ground press and hold the button that the time rush is on. Tom should be having a chipmunk voice when you do this. P.S. Don't let go of the time rush button when he's talking!

Sly 2: Band of Thieves Easter eggs
Back to top
Well go to the museum and after Bentley hacks and you go through the metal gate you turn right then stop immediately. Focus the camera in front of you to advance, but instead of going forward you turn left (with camera) and then you should see a painting of the Panda King from the first game.
In "A Tangled Web", go to the graveyard to the left of the main castle. There are many tombstones here, but if you look carefully, you will see that some say R.I.P. Rocket, followed by a date (can't read it). It even has a picture above the text.
Rocket was the first game Sucker Punch ever made.
This takes a few steps:
1. Go to the Evil Wolf Tomb in Episode 5.
2. Destroy absolutely everything in the tomb, including the guards.
3. Now, stand on the coffin in the middle, and facing away from the way you came, go stand on one of the pillars in front of you, either next to the left wall or the right wall. (There were wolf statues on these pillars before, but you should have destroyed them.)
4. Turn on your binocucom and aim it slightly above the coffin, and wait about ten seconds.
5. Depending on which pillar you're standing on, a large model of either Rocket or Jojo the Raccoon will appear above the coffin. These are characters from one of Sucker Punch's earlier games, Rocket: Robot on Wheels.
Awesome easter egg.
first go to episode 8 then play as bentley. then go to the ledge with the ice that you can climb with sly but don't jump down. Next go into binocumcom and aim at the place that old grizzle face usullaly is (which is to the right) and fire a sleep dart. Right after you press R1 get out of binocucom and run back to the safe house and play as sly.Run down the slope to the left and kill any gaurds that might be over there. Then wait for old grizzle face once you see him let him see you but don't let him hit you (Sly wouldn't like that) then go to where you shot bentleys sleep dart and get old grizzle face to lunge at you, after he lunges go on to the stick thing and ninja spire jump if you do this correctly old grizzle face will be trapped and you don't have to worry about him anymore.
P.S. if old grizzle face goes right through the short tunnel thing you did it wrong
P.S.S. this will also work if you want to drown old grizzle face in his spot
