Jak 3

Codes

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.

Glitches

Infinite Light Flight

This glitch happens because light shield terminates a combo. To exploit it, Simply use Light Flight, then immediatley Light Shield, Light Flight, Light Shield, etc. You can gain an infinite amount of altitude (height) with this glitch, and go over walls or through some ceilings.

Skip Missions in Hero Mode

You can skip some of the starting missions in hero mode. First, turn on the turbo jetboard secret. Then, use the jetboard to jump from island to island by executing the L1 high jump and a forward flip.

Unlimited/Easy Precursor Orbs

Go to any oracle statue and trade metal head skull gems to start an orb search challenge. Go to the orb and wait for the clock to turn to 00:00. Even though it says 00:00, it takes another second for the time to run out (I.E. 00:00 is really 00:00.100) So wait one more second, and then press Square to dash at the orb as soon as time runs out and the mission failed screen comes up. You will get 3 orbs, and be able to retry!

Have unlimited Precursor Orbs Secrets

Let's say you have collected 5 Precursor Orbs and you want all three Level Selects, copy the file with 5 precursor orbs 3 times into the remaining save slots, and activate Act 1 Level Select in the first file. Then activate Act 2 Level Select in the second. Then activate Act 3 Level Select in the third file, and now you can have all three Level Selects!

NOTE: This trick can be used for the other secrets also.
