View Full Version : [Spoilers] Squirrel Hunting

04-08-2014, 11:46 AM
Been having a play around this morning and have bagged me some squirrels!

http://puu.sh/80CWv.png (this image just shows the count, no spoilers)

The rest of this post will be spoiler tagged, read at your peril!

So far, as you can see from the image above I've found 4, and if you're reading this you want to find them too, so read on!

In Greenhorns Grove I have found two so far;

On Waterworks, when you get to the section where this platform (http://puu.sh/80D9r.jpg) falls forward, you will need to reverse up it and carefully down the ladder til the circular sign is off your screen, this puts you perilously close to dropping off the ladder so be careful! Once you've done that, you need to get back up the ladder and as you will see the sign has changed. (http://puu.sh/80DkC.jpg) Head for the end of the level and bail-out over the finish for your cutscene.

On Observatory, head along the track as normal til you get to the top of the red ramp used as a challenge where you'll see this sign (http://puu.sh/80DqP.jpg), drive past it til it's off screen and you hear a sound effect (but not too far onto the raising platform) then reverse back past the changed sign (http://puu.sh/80Duk.jpg) and all the way back down the hill to the bottom.

In Urban Sprawl I also have two;

On Skyscraper Showdown simply get to the end of the track and bail-out over the finish, no screenshots needed for this one.

On Park and Ride, when you get to the platform that raises (http://puu.sh/80DB3.jpg) you'll notice that under it is a squirrel sign, crash or bail-out to land in the box marked by the sign (http://puu.sh/80DCX.jpg) and wait.

So far that's all I have, but if anyone else has more to add, feel free to post (with spoiler tags) where you found them, screenshots and/or videos to help out with locations are welcome.

Happy hunting!

Thanks for sharing. I thought there are only 3 squirrels and you haven't mentioned that I found.
In Cliffhanger there is this place - http://i.imgur.com/7Zn3wmS.jpg. When you jump over that gap (with sun path) and go backwards (you need at little bit of speed), try to land on that path of sun. If you do correctly, you will hear a sound. I don't really know the right conditions, but I get that squirrel every time if I start doing backflip. I hope everyone will understand. Originally I saw this squirrel in Vantier's stream, so credits to him. ;)

Three more

Stormtrooper: Go forward until you reach the second checkpoint, then reverse as far as you can.

Blimp my ride: Reverse til you hit the switch, then forward to the first jump. Do not launch, instead ride to the top of the ramp until the light changes colour then reverse as far back as possible. Complete the challenge (35 signs) and the squirrell will be at the end.

Base Invader: Ride until you see "BAY 2" in the background and bail then grab the hook on the right (you will need some height), it will carry you to a conveyor belt then let go

Please share. Curious as to the other three.

Ski or Ride: Get to the first checkpoint and bailout into the cart above the track. (you have to be in the cart fully for it to count)

Shear Pressure: One of the harder ones that Vantier stumbled along. Get near the end where there's a pipe with a closed cap (http://i.imgur.com/Opj4kFe.jpg). Drop down onto it and then bailout past the finish line until you drop into a cave like area.

Road to Ruin: Get to the 2nd checkpoint and then bailout into the hole behind it until the sign shows a squirrel. Restart from the checkpoint and ride along until the screen goes dark and vuala.

Covert Ops - Finish the level, and wait

#13 - Rainforest Rumble - Hit the 6 pressure plates in 1 run, then roll back from the ramp where the final one is to the previous checkpoint to unlock the squirrel

14. Event 7 - Track 5 - wait after the end of the track
