Cheats for Megaman X7 (PS2)
Play as X
Save 64 hostages/robots to unlock X. Alternately, defeat two Bosses.
Play as Zero
You will unlock Zero as you progress with Axl.
Successfully complete the game and choose the "New Game+" option to begin with your previous chips, X, and his armor.
Alternate X appearance
At the character selection screen, hold Select and choose X to see him with all his armor.
X's Ultimate Armor
Find the large blue things for the parts of X's Ultimate Armor (as in the previous games in the series). Their locations are as follows:
Roll while dashing with Axl
Press Circle again while dashing. The best thing about this maneuver is that all shots that are fired upon Axl while he is rolling will miss him, resulting in less damage and possibly a higher Hunter grade.
Hover as Axl
Hold Jump (default is X) to hover. When you are hovering, you can stay in the same place or move around (with the D-pad or the Left Analog-stick) for a limited time. When you are hovering, you can fire Axl Bullets with the Normal Attack (default is Square). You will know that the hovering time is almost up by a slow decrease in altitude. This is a good trick to use when you cannot get to a place without a farther jump, such as Zero's Double Jump, or when you need to be in the air or need some height to kill an enemy.
Always use Dash Jump
With any character, hold Circle. While holding Circle, every jump (X) will be farther and faster than normal. This is the same as pressing Circle + X, with less timing involved.
Shortcut in Flame Hyenard stage
If you have the leg part for X, you can skip the entire second half of Flame Hyenard's stage. When you start, turn left so you can see the far platform. Jump and glide over to it. When you get directly against it, press Jump to climb up. If done correctly, shoot a few enemies and walk to the transporter. Note: This may take a few attempts. Also, when you are at the first 3D part of the level, use Glide Armor to glide to the other half of the area. Note: This will cause you to miss some Reploids.
Extra lives in Jungle stage
There is an extra life at the beginning of the stage. Immediately when Megaman/Zero/Axl warps into the stage, zoom behind you to get it. After completing the stage, keep coming here, exit, and repeat to get the maximum number of lives.
Weapons Energy tank in Ride Boarski stage
A Weapons Energy tank is behind one of the Reploids that you have to save.
Life Energy tank in Vanishing Gungaroo stage
In the area where you have to fight several Ride Armors, before you destroy them all, climb to the top of the pillars in the room. Search the top of each one. There is a Life Energy tank on top of one, and a Heart tank on another. There are also Reploids to save around that room.
Recommended Boss order
Soldier Stonekong, Tornado Onion, Splash Warfly, Flame Hyenard, Snipe Anteator, Wind Crowfang, Vanishing Gungaroo, Ride Boarski.
To easily defeat an enemy, use Zero's Tornado Slash, It is very effective and is able to blow up any enemy.
Defeating Flame Hyenard
Have Zero and X. First, with Zero, jump on the horse without having to shoot its legs. Use the back leg to get up. Then with his water weapon, use the thrust to hit Flame Hyenard when he moves after summoning his clones. If Zero gets low on energy, switch to X and use Splash Laser. When that runs out, use Snipe Missile.
Defeating Palace Road Boss
When you get to fight the annoying roller boss on the Palace Road, switch to Zero. When it comes close, press R2 to do the fireball attack. After about two blasts, his drum will explode, exposing a drill. Continue to slash him with the saber. When your life is low, switch to X and finish it off with the Giga Crush.
Use X's Explosion or Axl's Explosion/G-Launcherb (press Special Attack) when he is near you. When he is far, use X's Buster or Axl's Explosion/G-Launcher (press Attack). Finish him with Giga Crush.
Defeating Soldier Stonekong
Jump over the shield he throws and dodge the boulders by standing directly opposite of him. Sometimes he may not ever summon a boulder if you use Zero to slash or stun him, then Axl to just fire away.
Defeating Sigma's first form
Sigma is very easy in his first form. Use X and Zero. Sigma mostly jumps around and shoots a pink laser. Stay down when he is firing the laser and blast him with the X Buster and Volt Tornado. Slash him as he jumps around with Zero's Saber, but try not to get hit. Then, finish him off with the Giga Crush. If done correctly, you will not need to use any sub tanks or lose any life.
Defeating Sigma's final form
When Sigma's final form uses its Green Ball attacks, use Zero's Green Charged shield (hold Square). Zero will charge into Green Energy, and it will bounce the attack back to Sigma. When Sigma uses its Force Charged Punch, dash to right side then counter its attacks.
- Red: Him with X-Buster or Volt Tornado
- Sigma 1: Splash Laser (or Zero's D-Glaive special move)
- Sigma 2: Sniper Missile (or Zero's Hieijin Skill)
- Sigma 1: Splash Laser (or Zero's D-Glaive special move)
There are several bosses in this game you can defeat without any special weapons, given time and patience. They are Tornado Onion, Ride Boarski, and Stonekong. However, some are more challenging than others. Instead of giving a recommended order, the following lists each Boss' weakness when playing as Axl/X. It is not too difficult to figure out Zero's version. These were determined by looking for the traditional Mega Man series Weak Point Indicator. That is, when the Robot Master is hit by their respective weapon they usually, in most games, pause for a moment or lose large chunks of life quickly. Using this method, the last two Robot Masters on the list seem to have the same weakness, but it was not determined which used which weapon.
