3. Small Arms Story walkthrough

The story mode for this game is pretty straight forward and just requires you to win matches that get progressively harder, I will provide certain tips for each mission where possible (they do not work 100% of the time but do work more often than not). This should make it very easy but don't worry if you lose all your lives as you can just continue. You will lose half of your current score but this will not affect your achievements and you carry on from the mission you are on with full lives.

I recommend playing as Tyrone if you do not have the DLC as his freeze attack makes some levels a lot easier. If you do have the DLC I recommend playing as Ivar as you will need to complete the story as either Ivar or Gullarp for an achievement and I think Ivar is the bes. This is because if you take advantage of the game's poor AI in some levels, Ivar's special attack can make it really easy. I will be writing 2 walkthroughs of the story depending on if you pick Tyrone or Ivar the missions will be different.

Tyrone

1. Outhouse - You can try getting the enemy to follow you over the gap in the bridge and freeze them so they fall though or just keep shooting them this mission is really easy.

2. Train - Try to freeze the enemies on the left side of the train and try to stick to the right side of the train. When the enemies fall off-screen, they will die.

3. Target range - You don't need to do anything on this level just either waste all your ammo or wait for the time to run out.

4. Bazaar - Try and get the enemy to follow you under the little building on the right and then jump off and dash onto the roof when they try to follow you freeze them so they fall to their death.

5. Moonbase - There is not really a strategy to this level except freezing the enemies and then shooting them while they are frozen.

6. Outhouse - Jump onto the platform on the far left and the enemies should huddle together on the bridge. Just keep shooting them and when they die they should go back to the same place.

7. Target Range - Again you do not need to do anything on this level. to pass it.

8. Waterfall - Try and get the enemies to follow you over gaps and freeze them so they fall.

9. Train - Same technique as last time but I would say this is probably the toughest level so don't worry if you fail a few times. Try to pick up food as much as you can even if its just so the enemy cant use it.

10. Sewer/Boss - For the first section you will have to fight 2 little robots. Don't move when the game starts and just continuously shoot to the right. When 1 is dead they may come unstuck. In this case just use the freeze and shoot method. When both are dead a big robot will appear. Just use the freeze and shoot method on him too and this battle will be easily won. If more little robots spawn, just concentrate on the big robot as when this is dead the game will finish.

After this level you will get:

Ivar

1. Bazarr - No tips for this one really; you could try going under the bottom right building with the enemy following you. Then jump and boost up onto the roof of the building and slashing the enemy while they are in the air, but this does not work too often.

2. Village - Go to the left side of the tunnel at the bottom. Aim right and hold LT this will work more often than not and the enemies will keep going back to the same location.

3. Target range - You don't need to do anything on this level just either waste all your ammo or wait for the time to run out.

4. Iceberg - It is best to go jump onto the mast on the left side. Look at the enemy and hold LT. The enemy will often keep going back to the same location.

5. Train - There are not really any tips for this level except for keep getting health and try to pick up the freeze gun and freeze the enemies on the left side of the screen. This way they get stuck behind.

6. Outhouse - Jump onto the platform just left of the bridge and aim at the enemies on the bridge and hold LT. The enemies should keep going to the same location.

7. Target Range - Once again you do not need to do anything on this level to proceed.

8. Train - No new tips. See Level 5 above.

9. Bazarr - I found this level the toughest of the lot. I recommend picking up food whenever possible and just spamming LT attacks. Also aim for the pig a lot as when he puts down his mines you can throw your sword at him and it will blow up the mine and do big damage.

10. Sewer/Boss - At the start of the level do not move and just keep using your LT attack the hit the little robots. After they are dead, a big robot will spawn. Keep using the same attack on him and collecting food when possible. If more little robots spawn, just concentrate on the big one as the others will die when the big one does.

After completing the game as Ivar you will get both (the first one if you didn't do the game with a different character previously):
