As he tries to make his escape off of the
Dark Athena,
Riddick will need some help. He must use variousweapons and equipment not only to neutralize threats, but also to gain access to various parts of theship. Here you will find out about each and every weapon and tool as well as how to best use them.
Melee Weapons
Hairpin and Blades
Description:
Riddick acquires ahairpin from Revas right at thebeginning of the game. It isessentially a dagger that youcan use for both stabbing andslashing.
Tactical Notes:
Combat knives,scalpels, and other bladesfunction the same way as thehairpin; you can use the same tactics for all ofthem. Although the hairpin causes less damagethan the club, its speed makes it preferablewhen going toe-to-toe with an opponent. Aseries of quick slashes with this weapon candrop an enemy in a few seconds. Fightingtactics should resemble regular hand-to-handcombat; block incoming strikes and wait for theright opportunity to slash. Do not stick and movewhen an opponent is also armed with a blade—since blades can strike quickly, it is difficult toget out of the way.
TIP
 The quickest way to down an opponent with thehairpin is to intercept an incoming strike by pressingthe attack button when the hairpin or blade flashes.Riddick grabs the attacker’s arm and shoves thehairpin or blade into the enemy’s neck.
Club Fighting Moves
AttackButtons
BlockBlock buttonRight-to-Left SwingAttack buttonLeft-to-Right SwingLeft plus attack buttonOverhead SmashUp plus attack buttonChin StrikeDown plus attack buttonCounter/Lethal MoveAttack button when weapon isflashing
Description:
Use a clubwhen youreally,really wantto hurtsomeone.A few goodwhackswith one of these on an easier opponent, and heain’t getting back up.
Tactical Notes:
This two-handed weapon is devas-tating in a fight, but it’s also clumsy. The club’sheavy weight requires long windups beforedelivering a strike, leaving the wielder open toattack. A quick target can dodge the incomingblow. For this reason, reserve the club forsurprise attacks when you can whack youropponent in the back of the head. When facingan enemy with a club, use the stick-and-movetechnique to strike, then backpedal before youropponent can swing. Unless you have a clubof your own, don’t block an incoming strike.Instead, step out of the way to stay alive.
Club
TIP
When equipped with the club, you can block allincoming strikes, including slashes and stabs froma blade. The only exception to this rule is a strikedelivered with the butt of a firearm.

Tools of the Trade
Ulaks
Ulak Fighting Moves
AttackButtons
BlockBlock buttonRight-to-Left SlashAttack buttonLeft-to-Right SlashLeft plus attack buttonRight, Left, DoubleOutward ComboUp plus attack buttonSlash UpDown plus attack buttonCounter/Lethal MoveAttack button when weapon isflashing
Description:
These curvedfighting blades are theultimate melee weapon.Riddick picks them up whileon the
Dark Athena
from amerc he kills.
Tactical Notes:
Once you havethe ulaks, there is littlereason to use any of theother melee weapons. When in hand-to-handcombat with an enemy merc, especially one ofthe leaders, it is a good idea to switch up yourfighting moves. Try starting with a basic slash,quickly hitting the enemy before he or she canblock, then follow it up with a slash up, andthen the combo. This series of moves inflicts alot of damage, so you are set up for a counter ifthose moves have not already killed the enemy.Ulaks are also great for sneaking up on enemies,such as drones, from behind to stealthily killthem. The ulaks are one weapon you want tobe able to switch to immediately. Set them asone of your hot buttons or hot keys so you canquickly pull them out for a melee attack.
TIP
When fighting against an alpha drone, it is importantto have your ulaks ready to use as soon as you stunthis enemy. Only with the ulaks equipped can youmove in to finish off these tough enemies.
Firearms
GunAssault Rie
Ammo Capacity:
14
Fire Mode:
Semi-automatic
Description:
A simple, single-fire weapon, the gunis reliable but not verypowerful.
Tactical Notes:
This pistol may not look like much,but it’s more than capable of getting the jobdone, especially if you’re using it for headshots.This is most effective when targeting stationaryunsuspecting enemies. The gun is also usefulfor shooting out lights, regardless of distance.As a rule, use the pistol whenever one bulletwill do the job. If you’re not sure if one bulletcan ensure the kill, defer to the shotgun orassault rifle.
Ammo Capacity:
38
Fire Mode:
Auto-matic
Description:
Good up close or from a distance,this automatic rifle pumps out rounds untilyou decide your target is dead, or until you getbored with shooting the dead corpse for fun,whichever comes first.
Tactical Notes:
The assault rifle is the most well-rounded weapon in the game. Pick one up assoon as you can, and be sure to collect ammofor it after killing mercs armed with this weapon.The assault rifle is fully automatic, capable ofspitting out a wall of lead within a few seconds.When fired in long bursts, the rifle bucks outof control, reducing accuracy. For this reason,squeeze the trigger and release, firing no morethan two or three rounds at a time, especiallywhen engaging targets at long range.The assault rifle is also fitted with a flash-light you can activate by pressing the lightbutton. This comes in handy for finding your waythrough dark ducts and other shadowy areas.But the flashlight also gives away your position,so use it sparingly.

The Assault on Dark Athena
.
Athena 
This merc ship isa military-classvessel equippedwith state-of-the-art weaponstechnology anda crew of 235mercenaries.The

 began her careeras the

. She wasbuilt at theKatlin shipyardoutside TangierSix before theWalling Wars.She was laterpurchased byIrvin Senate andhis mercenarycorporation.The ship wasrefitted andrenamed
TheLocust 
.Senate had hermounted with dozens of Shipbuster cannons,hundreds of Relayer Guns, and a squadron ofdogfighters. With a ship this strong the plan wasto dominate the region of lawlessness near theOuterzone. Senate appointed his close friend andally, Yoto, to be his XO, knowing the man could betrusted completely with the ship and crew.When Revas took over, she renamed the ship
Dark Athena
in memory of her mother.
Mercs
Gale Revas
Even as a child GaleRevas was full of pissand vinegar. After herparents were executedfor piracy, young Revastook to the slums of SolLucia like a fish to water.She was recruited intoone of the more violent gangs roaming the grimstreets of this failed world, and soon they werelooking to her as their leader.She ran that crew like her own personal army—until the day the Sol Lucian Marine Corps recruitedher to fight their nasty little war. She was a toughgirl, and a good fighter to boot. Those brutal yearsin the service turned the already hard shell thatenclosed her into titanium steel. This is why theband of mercenaries that captured her didn’t justkill her on the spot.Irvin Senate—the captain of that mercenaryship—saw the talent she had but not thedarkness that dwelled beneath. Revas was likea poison. She had this beguiling way about herthat few could resist, and a sly wit that the Devilhimself would envy. And when her charm failedto accomplish what she wanted, her inner brutalnature usually took care of any opposition.If only poor Senate had known what she’d do tohim when he took Gale Revas on as a mercenaryaboard his ship…
