Debug Menu Cheats
Input the buttons anywhere in the game. The "Limited Debug Mode" code needs to be entered first and the "Full Debug Mode" code entered second. There is a chime after each debug mode is entered. Directions are entered using the directional pad. The left analog stick should be held still while L3 is held down.
These codes work on all final versions of all releases of this game. Note that for the Vita releases, use the rear touch pad to replace buttons: top-left for L2, bottom-left for L3, top-right for R2, and bottom-right for R3. Those codes requiring a second controller will not work on Vita.

Cool Warp World
Go to the South city water area and into the left corner (there should be a small square building with a door). Jump on the roof, orient your camera facing back towards the center of the water area, then roll off just above the door. If you do it right, you will hit the ground, the door will open briefly, and you should be able to get inside. Once inside, you can use R3 to look around, or press up on the camera repeatedly and you will suddenly be in an elevator. At the bottom of the elevator is a cool platform with blue stretching in all directions. You can kinda see the block puzzle in the upper left corner. When you die there you will reappear next to the Titan suit in the underport. This glitch cannot be accessed until you get to "Rescue Sig in the Underport".

Dark Jak vs Final Boss
After the cutscene before the final battle, hold R2 and you'll transform (or stay as) Dark Jak, regardless of Dark Eco meter.

Destroy Errol in last zoomer race
It is possible to destroy Errol in the final race. All you have to do is force him to hit a wall (the large rock one works best). He will not regenerate and the cutscene once you win the race remains the same. This does not work with other races and it is also possible for you to be destroyed as well.

Hit A Guard With a Zoomer, and He Won't Be Mad
If you are angry for whatever reason at the Krimzon Guard, and want to make them mad and not get killed for it, then complete these steps:
1- Get a Zoomer (they're the small fast little vehicles)
2- Go full speed aiming towards a guard
3- Right before you hit him, press Triangle to mount off
4- If you do it right, the vehicle will smash into him and he will receive damage, without raising any alarms

Swim Anywhere You Want in the Pumping Station
You can get rid of that annoying robot that kills you instantly by turning into Dark Jak and executing Dark Bomb in the water while the robot is in view. If done correctly your screen should shake a little and the robot should disappear.

While in the Water Slums, send a zoomer under a building. Next, get off the zoomer and try to get on again. If done correctly, you'll go into the water and sink til you die. You'll come back though.

Naughty Dog Orbs
If you translate the writing on Precursor Orbs (they use the Precursor Alphabet) to English, it will read "Naughty Dog" . To find this, find a Precursor Orb (the red eggs) and translate it (this is done manually) .

If you translate the text on the signs with the black and white letters with the red paw mark from the Precursor Alphabet to English, they'll read "Naughty Dog" . NOTE: Since there isn't an in-game option that translates stuff like this, you have to do it manually.

Instant Alert Removal
To instantly remove alert status, walk into an airlock for a City exit (do not leave the city). The music should immediately fade and once you walk back into the city the alerts will be gone.

No Damage from Big Falls

Unlimited Precursor orbs
The one and only way to get unlimited precursor orbs find a side mission that rewards precursor orbs when you find it in a certain amount of time. Get close to the orb and jump over top of the it and pause it before you fall on it (must be directly above orb when paused) and go to the 180° arrow and restart it. If done correctly you should hear the sound that you hear when you collect the orbs and the mission should restart. If you press R3 (press the right analog stick into the controller) you should have 3 more precursor orbs. Save frequently in the pause menu in case you do grab the orb before you can restart it
