Database Updates
There are two kinds of Database Updates, the ones that you receive automatically by progressing trough the story and the ones you have to search for because they are hidden in chests.

Update File 1: Located in S-Line Division Sector 3.
Search the containers after opening the green path.

Update File 2: Located in Pedea Island, in the Dark professor's laboratory. Use the secret elevator (it's the chair) to reach the basement, there go right and you will find a chest and the grave of the professor's pet.

Update File 3: Located in the Elsa, use assistant Scott's computer to read ALL the Federal Reports.

Update File 4: Located outside of the Archon Cathedral, search for a big statue and shoot it 4 times to reveal a chest.

Update File 11: Located in a "Hidden" E.S. core area inside of the Merkabah. Go back to the Merkabah by using the E.V.S. and go to where you met Sellers in the story-line, there you'll find a switch to open a door to the core, which can only be accessed by travelling with the E.S.s, go there and you will find two chests, one with the Update File 11.

When you come off the elevator, you will see four crystals floating above the area to the left of your screen. You need to move the first bridge up to that platform. Examine the first console you see. This console is located on the same platform as the elevator to this floor. This will move the bridge up to the area with the four crystals. Fight the Gnosis that appear, and grab the update file.

Gameplay Tips
Equip gear to display data:
It is important to have one character and E.S. with an accesory that allows you to see the enemies' physical/elemental weaknesses and strengths. If you're not aware of these properties, you may waste a special attack, an ether attack or a tech attack only to see it land 0 damage or even heal the enemy.

Kill enemies with your special attacks:
This is a must if you want to have a strong party,
landing a finishing blow with your special attack will net you an extra 50% in experience, skill points, and gold per enemy. Using traps to fill an extra boost gauge before normal battles will help you finishing the battle with special attacks. And in boss battles, where I really really recommend you to land a finish strike, when you see that he doesn't have much HP left, you should use analyze to see the remaining HP of the boss and know when to use a special attack to finish him. Doing this will assure you to have a stronger party.
Hidden Map
In old Miltia, Go into the City, you have 2 sets of Binoculars. the first one is up a set of stairs and beside 2 trash cans. Look into the Binoculars at the park below. In the south east corner of the park, you will see something scribbled onto the pavement. It's a Map for the beach, with 2 X's Indicating the location of a hidden treasure chest, and the dark professors Hide-out.

I know, That map kinda made me flip out too, I could have used that map sooner but didn't think of finding it in the binoculars, but I guess they're there for a reason right?

(As for the second set of Binoculars.. If there IS a map in it, because I'm looking into it right now and can't find one, Please comment and tell me where it is.)
Optional bosses Omega ID
Omega ID
Location: CIT testing grounds
Head for the CIT testing grounds trough EVS, board the mono-carrier and proceed north through the area past the soldiers. Board the #2 Transporter. Go up the escalator and head through the demonstration area to the eastern transport dock. Board Transport #6 to go to the Special Weapon Development Division. Use the key you obtained from Citrine to open the lock and head inside. Operate the console in front of Omega to start the battle.

Before going with the battle recommendations, I-ll write the previous battle "preparatives":
First make sure you already have the strongest E.S. equipment in the game equipped. Second have a decent stock of E.S. healing items. Third any close range E.S. MUST have D-KILL R and D-KILL C equipped. Fourth have at least one E.S. with Sensor. And finally make sure every E.S. has D-Nullify Effect equipped.

You-ll fight Omega Universitas first, don-t worry he-s just a distraction, eliminate him without wasting any anima at all.
After defeating it, he-ll transform into Omega ID:
Omega ID has a changing elemental immunity ability. It will be weak to a certain element and nullify another. This will change EVERY round. This is why it is important ot have a sensor item equipped. The best thing to do is use the E.S. that can't do damage to heal then switch as the immunity switches. The same goes with special attacks, use them when he is weak to that certain element.
After a while, Omega ID will start using Destruction Wave, which will damage all your E.S.s and inflict status effects(this is why I told you to have D-Nullify Effect equipped). Be sure to keep your HP well above 40000 just in case it manages to critical on one of your E.S.s. Heal up right after, in case he decides to follow up with another one.
At about 60% of its HP, Omega ID will start using Waves of the Berserker. When you see this, have every character Charge, as it will follow with Dark Lord,which can hit your E.S. for more than 60000 HP if unguarded.
After you get him down to around 80% of his max health it will start analyzing your anima gauges. If more than one of your E.S. has level one or above of the Anima gauge there is a chance of Omega ID healing himself for 150,000 HP by using Will of Yin and Yang. So from this point on use Anima awakening level 1 only. Also it will use Dark Lord twice in a row on the same E.S., so be careful about that.

Be sure to get a Finish Strike bonus and good luck with it.
After the fight you will obtain Decoder 06, as well as the Emperor's Bracelet.
Read the In-Game Database
As soon as you get a Database update, I suggest reading it. If you don't remember the storyline from the last game, or just want to refresh your memory on something, all of the details are in there.

Ultimate weapons
You can start the side-quest to get every ultimate weapons for your party members after the events in Abel's Ark (DISC 2)

Shion - Miyuki Special
To obtain this weapon walk by the UMN "machine" at the Elsa (near the saving point, the shop and the EVS; Again this must done after the events in Abel's Ark)and Miyuki will contact you and offer you to make Shion's ultimate weapon, but she needs a geocrystal from you. The rough geocrystal is acquired on the floating landmass by destroying the giant purple crystal. If you don't have it, go back to the floating landmass using the EVS.
Go to the UMN "machine" again, she'll tell you that you have a rough crystal, but she needs a pure one, so go to the women's quarters and have Bunnie refine it for you. Go back to the UMN "machine" and Shion's ultimate weapon Miyuki Special is all yours!

Getting KOS-MOS's ultimate weapon is quite simple, but expensive After the events in Abel's Ark, this weapon will appear in the online store, but you'll need 300,000G to buy it.

chaos - God Breath
Talk to the droid in the bar inside of the Elsa , who is obsessed with a stone, he will tell you that you need to return to Abel's Ark, once you are there go back to each of the spheres you previously entered.
Head for the rooms where Zohar emulators were spinning in each of the spheres, there you'll find a shinning light, examine it.After getting all four of them, go to the "core"( the room the spheres are rotating around) and you will receive "God's Breath" and an item called "The Universe"

Jr - Vaquero
In order to get this weapon you must finish the fifth world of Hakox (a game that is located inside the bar of the Elsa)
I wish you good luck with this one, you'll need it.
In my opinion, this is the hardest ultimate weapon to obtain.

Ziggy - Gnosis Nail
Talk to CABRILLO, the android near the E.S. elevator on the first floor of the Elsa, he'll say he will make Ziggy his final weapon the Gnosis Nail. But in exchange you'll need to collect 99 Sephirotic canes!
They are found only on Azazel and Armaros Gnosis which are only found in the final two maps of the game.
Just stay around a save point and keep fighting
those Gnosis, reset the map when needed (to make them re-appear).
While this isn't hard, it is really tedious, so only people with patience and free time should do it.

MOMO - Moon Bridge
Go into the women's quarters on the Elsa and talk with KAMIKAZE. The droid will tell you that
the Elsa's pet Alby has gone missing into the Durandal through EVS.
Go there and talk to the dog at the docks.
It will run off and operate the transport train in the Durandel. Head to the park and go up the escalator to see another scene with the dog.
Then enter the park and head for the right side to see the finally receive the weapon Heaven's Door.
Then head back for the Elsa and speak with KAMIKAZE one more time to receive the Mood Bridge and finally speak with VALENCIA (another droid) in the Elsa's E.S. Hanger to use Heaven's Door.

Jin - VB-Dawn
In the men's quarters bathroom of the Elsa is a droid called PANACHE, he will tell you that he is learning how to make a legendary sword. But he needs some ingredients:
1)Buy a weapon called the VB-Crimson and make sure to leave it unequipped.
2)Next is a special Item called the Prayer Beads.
To get it walk around the world map of Miltia, it's on the right side, there is a district that is locked, use the code 5150 on the door and the district will now be unlocked, there you will receive the Prayer Beads.

With both of these items PANACHE will forge the legendary sword VB-Dawn and you will also receive an accessory called Nine Stones.

Optional bosses Erde Kaiser Sigma
Erde Kaiser Sigma
Location: Pedea Island, the secret laboratory of the Dark Professor, past the water you'll find a rocky structure, check the wall until you find a destroyable segment, go trough the the newly open door and you'll find the laboratory talk with the coconut monkey, see the Dark professor's last will and talk with the monkey again, accept the challenge and you'll fight Erde Kaiser Sigma.

Be sure of having your attacker's master skill (Blood Dancer, Heaven Tracker, Overtaker, etc.), and have Safety or Best Ally on every participating character.
You'll need the three ether attacks Erde Kaiser, Erde Kaiser fury and Dark Erde Kaiser; to be honest you don't need them to defeat him, but it will be easier with them.

First of all, put on your Safety or Best Ally ethers. Having Recover EP will help as well. Start pounding away at him and he will eventually start using his shields. Counter Kaiser Shield I using Erde Kaiser, Kaiser Shield II using Erde Kaiser Fury, and Kaiser Shield III using Dark Erde Kaiser.
If you don't have these ether attacks, the you'll have to destroy the shield by using your characters attacks:
Shield One: weak to lightning
Shield Two: weak to ice.
Shield Three: weak to fire.
After all three shield are down, Erde Kaiser Sigma will start attacking normally. Use Beam attacks and strong break attacks to hurt Erde Kaiser Sigma, of course use special attacks when possible. It is highly recommended to use your character's offensive master skills (Overtaker, Blood Dancer, Heaven Tracker) to deal more damage to the giant robot.

Erde Kaiser Sigma's attacks will probably be fatal for your characters, so be sure of having Safety/Best Ally.
When Erde Kaiser Sigma gets low on HP, it will ready Kaiser Victory Spark. If everybody has best ally, you are safe .
Finally do everything that it takes to finish the battle with a finish strike, as you get some MAJOR points.

By defeating Erde Kaiser Sigma you will get Decoder 3 and the Gustav Wrist. Note that Decoder 3's door is in the basement of the Professor's lab. Once opened you will get to use Erde Kaiser Sigma ether skill.
This skill is way too powerful and makes the game too easy (you can kill the last boss with two hits of Erde Kaiser Sigma) so it's up to you if you want to use it or not.
