Safety Information

ABOUT PHOTOSENSITIVE SEIZURES

A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain visual images, including flashing lights or patterns that may appear in video games. Even people who have no history of seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed condition that can cause these “photosensitive epileptic seizures” while watching video games.

These seizures may have a variety of symptoms, including lightheadedness, altered vision, eye or face twitching, jerking

or shaking of arms or legs, disorientation, confusion, or momentary loss of awareness. Seizures may also cause loss of consciousness or convulsions that can lead to injury from falling down or striking nearby objects.

Immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any of these symptoms. Parents should watch for or ask their children about the above symptoms—childrenand teenagers are more likely than adults to experience these seizures.

The risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures may be reduced by sitting farther from the television screen, using a smaller

television screen, playing in a well-litroom, and not playing when you are drowsy or fatigued.

If you or any of your relatives have a history of seizures or epilepsy, consult a doctor before playing.

Other Important Health and Safety Information The Xbox Instruction Manual contains important health and safety information that you should read and understand before using this software.

AVOID DAMAGE TO YOUR TELEVISION

Do not use with certain televisions. Some televisions, especially frontorrear-projectiontypes, can be damaged if any video games, including Xbox games, are played on them. Static images presented during the normal course of gameplay may “burn in” to the screen, causing a permanent shadow of the static image to appear at all

times, even when video games are not being played. Similar damage may occur from static images created when placing a video game on hold or pause. Consult your television owner’s manual to determine if video games can be played safely on your set. If you are unable to find this information in the owner’s manual, contact your television dealer or the manufacturer to determine if video games can be played safely on your set.

SWITCHING BETWEEN CHARACTERS Use the D-pad to change which member of Brute Force you control. Flank your enemies, scout ahead, or simply attack.

These are the basic skills you need to get a quick start in Brute Force.

MOVE Move the Left thumbstick in the direction you want to go.

LOOK Move the Right thumbstick to look around and select targets with thecolor-codedreticle. (Ared reticle means you are looking at an enemy target,green means friendly, andyellow indicates the target is part of your mission objective.)

11

BRUTE FORCE

The Team

BRUTUS

SPECIES, GENDER Feral, male.

ROLE Shock trooper.

SPECIAL ABILITY

Spirit of Vengar Brutus can call upon the power of the Feral deity Vengar. While infused with this supernatural power, Brutus can charge his enemies, killing them instantly.

SKILLS

Sense of the Beast He can sense enemies and traps, and perceive things others might miss.

Spirit Warrior In Spirit of Vengar mode, Brutus can regenerate his health, see a creature’s essence, and become more resistant to damage.

As a warrior, Brutus is a lethal mix of speed, stealth, and strength. When not pursuing mission goals, he will typically back up the operatives, working to flank or rush an engaged enemy. Brutus picks his fights wisely. He’ll call for help if it’s too much for him to handle, and retreat if he starts to lose a fight. However, if another squadmate is still in the fray, he’ll refuse to leave. Although he can carry a single heavy weapon, his weapon of choice is the rifle, and he always has at least one.

FLINT

SPECIES, GENDER Human synthetic, female.

ROLE Sniper.

SPECIAL ABILITY

Advanced Targeting Flint raises her rifle, ready for any target to show itself. While in this mode, Flint will automatically target any enemies that are within a wide area in front of her. Flint cannot reload while using this ability, and will drop out of Advanced Targeting if she runs out of ammo.

SKILLS

Air Recycling Flint’s synthetic body does not require air to operate, and she is resistant togas-basedattacks.

Threat Analysis While in Advanced Targeting mode, Flint’s enhanced combat abilities display the current health of the enemy within her sights.

Advanced Sniping Advanced synthetic eye implants allow Flint to zoom farther with sniper rifles than any other character, and to take out most combatants with a single,well-placedheadshot.

Flint is a sniper whose augmented abilities give her lethal accuracy with any weapon. Her preferred weapons are sniper rifles and pistols. Flint cannot use heavy weapons. She is supremely confident in her ability, yet she is the voice of cynicism. Flint adopts a cautious hunting style of combat—sheprowls close to walls and tries to position herself high above the enemy, picking them off with ease.

12

13

BRUTE FORCE

The Team

HAWK

SPECIES, GENDER Human, female.

ROLE Scout.

SPECIAL ABILITY

Stealth Hawk can move without making asound—sheis virtually invisible. She is difficult to detect, except when firing a weapon; excellent for sneaking behind enemy turrets and taking them down.

SKILLS

Powerblade Hawk carries a deadly Powerblade that is designed to silently eliminate targets. Although most effective when striking unseen from behind her target, it can be used as an assault weapon. Equip and use the Powerblade as you would an inventory item.

System Bypass Hawk’s tech skills enable her to bypass computer and electrical systems that would otherwise sound alarms.

Awareness Hawk possesses a level of awareness that allows her to see things that others miss.

Hawk is an adept, careful scout, and believes in gathering facts before bulldozing in—atactical style that sometimes puts her at odds with Tex. Hawk is the fastest and quietest member of the team. She has the least armor and cannot carry large weapons.

TEX

SPECIES, GENDER Human, male.

ROLE Heavy assault trooper.

SPECIAL ABILITY

Berserker Tex fires both weapons at once. Tex cannot reload while using this ability.

SKILLS

Assault Gear Tex uses the heaviest armor and weaponry of the team.

Explosives Disarmament Tex can disarm enemy explosives, from simple explosives and mines to complex devices.

As an operative, Tex is a bruiser. When left solo in a firefight, Tex will methodically seek and destroy. Nothing pretty about it; he’ll try to outgun anything

he sees. Tex fights with rifles, cannons, missiles, and other heavy weapons. He scorns light weapons and would rather throw a pistol than fire it.

14

15

BRUTE FORCE

Weapons

Listed below are some of the weapons you’ll find as you progress in your mission. You may also find weapons or items not listed here.

BALLISTIC WEAPONS

Solid projectile weapons dispense damage by firing good old-fashionedbullets (orrazor-sharpdiscs) at high velocity through a muzzle.

FOLEY 356 TACT

The Foley 356 is a sleek, extremely effective handgun.

L-SHOT-50

The standard Confed-issueballistic rifle fireshigh-caliberlead slugs.

RVG50 MINIGUN

The minigun is a miniature version of a vehicle-mountedmachine gun; as a personal weapon it is anything

but “mini.”

RAIL RVR

Rail technology uses two parallel copper rails and an electric current to launch a projectile at well beyond Mach 2.

RAIL CLVR

The rail cannon is a bigger version of the rail rifle.

FERAL CUTTER

The traditional weapon of Feral warriors, the cutter fires razor-sharpdiscs at high velocities that ricochet off objects.

GRENADES

Some grenades cause more damage than others. Any grenade is good for softening up the enemy and taking a few of them down.

GAS GRENADE

The gas grenade releases a cloud of poisonous gas when it explodes.

FRAG GRENADE

The shrapnel grenade explodes sharp hot metal shards on the enemy.

FIELD TACTICS

Listen to what your squad members are telling you, especially Hawk and Brutus. They can detect enemies before they appear onscreen.

16

BRUTE FORCE

Weapons

ENERGY GRENADE

Because of the energy grenade’s burst effect that can damage multiple opponents, the grenade toss doesn’t require pinpoint accuracy.

IKHAN-GPLGRENADELAUNCHER

The iKhan fires cluster grenades that pepper an area with shrapnel bomblets.

MISSILES

Missiles are self-propelledprojectiles. Save these powerful weapons for when you need massive destruction and aren’t worried too much about collateral damage.

SWEEPER V MISSILECANNON

An apparatus that fires standard missiles with a three-meterburst radius.

THERM SWEEPER

MISSILECANNON

This missile cannon fires multiple thermalite warheads that can track targets.

18

FIELD TACTICS

When using a missile cannon, aim at the ground near the enemies’ feet, rather than attempting a direct hit. The explosion will take out most enemies if you hit your spot.

LASER WEAPONS

Laser weapons are the most commonly used weapons by Confederation warriors. They make little noise and have high accuracy. Laser weapons regenerate their charge, so you won’t run out of ammo!

CONFED LZR-10LASER PISTOL

Good punch, low noise factor, and minimal recoil make the laser pistol a good stealth weapon.

CONFED LZR-23LASER RIFLE

The ubiquitous laser rifle is the basic-issuerifle for Confed troops.

CONFED LZR-50LASER CANNON

The laser cannon’s giant beam is large enough to cause serious damage without tremendous noise or recoil.

19

BRUTE FORCE

Items

Press B to cycle through and use any of these items from your inventory. Pull the Left trigger to use the equipped item. Listed below are some of the items you may find as you playBrute Force:

MEDKIT

A medkit will heal some of the damage you may have taken.

SENTRY BOMB

Equipped with a motion sensor, the sentry bomb explodes when something enters its proximity radius. Tex can disarm sentry bombs.

ROLLING BOMB

The rolling bomb speeds to the nearest enemy target. It will even adjust its trajectory to follow the enemy. The rolling bomb detonates eventually whether it reaches its target or not, but it can follow an enemy around corners.

ORGANIC SENSOR

The organic sensor is a vision aid that will allow the wearer to detect signs of life

when visibility is otherwise compromised. Brutus cannot equip the organic sensor.

20

Extras

Some items are activated immediately when touched. They may be found in secret or well-defendedplaces. Some of these items include:

BRIEFCASE

Edward Kingman’s bribery extends throughout the system. His favorite method of payment is to provide a briefcase full of cash. If you find a briefcase, be sure to pick it up because it will increase funding for that mission.

DNA CANISTER

Genome sequences can be found in hidden or protected places throughout the Ulysses system. Collect them to unlock extra characters for deathmatch play!

GARO FRUIT

Found only on Ferix, the garo instantly cures wounds.

PSYCHIC RUBY

Carried by Seer Priests, the psychic ruby contains neurotransmitters and provides a burst of healing to anyone holding it.

MEMORY CHIP

When an operative dies, a memory chip containing the operative’s memories can be recovered from the body to make the cloning process easier and cheaper.

21

BRUTE FORCE

Enemies

SEER PRIESTS

The Seer Priests are the overseers of Shadoon’s army of followers. They are tyrants who persistently denigrate the followers, and have no problem with sacrificing others for Shadoon’s cause. These fanatics attack your team on sight with a powerful psychic blast.

MUTANTS

Mutants are the downtrodden minority of Caspian. They are bitterly enraged by conditions in their filthy slums and toxic labor factories. They agitate against the Confed and its agents, set traps, and fight like cornered rats.

FERAL OUTCASTS

Outcasts are Feral warriors who have been banished for crimes against the clan. Some are recruited by

the Seers, who twist the Outcasts’ minds and bodies with their psychic powers and mind-poweredmachinery. As minions of the Seers, Outcasts are dangerous and vicious killers, warped to serve Shadoon’s purposes.

CASPIAN SUBVERSIVE MILITIA

Some members of the Caspian Militia have been corrupted by promises of wealth and power, and now owe their allegiance to Edward Kingman. They are equipped with state-of-the-artConfederation weaponry, and they arewell-trainedin militia tactics, which

makes them both treacherous and deadly.

EDWARD KINGMAN

For the past forty years Edward Kingman has dominated trade in the Ulysses system through supplying materials, especially sootrock, to the Ferguson colonists on Caspian. He may be rich, but he’s dirty. If there’s something rotten going on anywhere in the Ulysses system, Kingman is probably in on it.

22

SHADOON

Shadoon is a powerful religious figure among the Seers. He believes he is the messenger of his gods, and that judgment day for the Confederation is due. He is a religious zealot who thinks nothing of murdering his own followers, who gladly give up their lives to act as living batteries for Shadoon’s machinery.
