Tech Orbs Guide

Finding Tech Orbs can be a tricky business. So to help you guys find all of those elusive orange globes of upgrading goodness, I’ve put together a video guide with some hints and tips. These may help you guys and girls get one step closer to those achievements/trophies and get more upgrades in the process.

Here are some more top tech orb tips:

1. Always back track any area you’ve just fought in for any stray orbs.

2. If a group of orbs seems unreachable, this usually means there are some well hidden platforms, so keep your eyes peeled for that shine.

3. During large puzzles like the windmill, the bridges and even the submarine carts, all have access to large clusters of orbs, but you’ll need to use those puzzle elements to gain access to them.

4. Kill all enemies to gain multiple tech orbs per destroyed mech.

5. Go over to every corner of the world, sometimes there’s a hidden corner that blends in with the environment. You can go around the corner to find more hidden orbs.
