Checking trash cans for items:|
Check trash cans for items by kicking them. The lid will fly up if there is nothing inside. The can will just wobble if there is Zenny or a item inside.
Some opponents have small "lego men" pirates appear they are killed. To get free energy cubes, shoot the "lego man" a couple of times with the buster. Then, kick him after he's been taken care of. A life cube should appear. You can kick him about three times and it will stop.
Hard and easy difficulty modes:
Complete the game to unlock an additional option (in green) on the main menu that allows the game to be played at a more difficult level. Defeat the game under the new difficulty level to unlock another option (in yellow) that allows the game to be played at an easier difficulty level, with dash boots and full left arm weapon capability.
Faster trash check:
If you are looking for items in trash cans, kick them instead of talking to them. If they are empty, the top will fly off, but if they are full it will stay on. This way, you can check for items in them without having to listen to Megaman say "Is there anything inside?"
Free Canteen refill
If you do not have any Zenny and you need a refill, you can get one for free by going to the Junkstore Lady and go to refill canteen. She will say a certain price, then answer "Yes". She will say you do not have enough money. Select "Refill" again and she will say, "What the hey I'll do it for free!" and you will have your canteen refilled.
Quick energy cubes:
To quickly gain a little health in battle, shoot a Servbot until he is smoking, then kick him a couple of times. At least two energy cubes should appear from each Servbot.
