This one can be found without every entering a mission. It's in 
the Test Arena! Once you enter the arena destroy one of the 
drones and look up at the center of the ceiling. You will see a 
panel there that can be blasted away. Boost to the upper level, 
blast it, go up and get the part, come back down and destroy the 
other drone. If you don't not have sufficient boost power then 
you can use the "Boost Override" trick to get it.  Just press 
L2+R2+R3 at the same time and you will have unlimited energy for 
a limited amount of time.  Now go and get the part and complete 
the arena.  That's it! One parts down, eleven more to go.

In this mission you can just about skip destroying any of the 
security drones, you will take some AP damage, but you won't lose 
on the ammo cost. What's important is that you use a head that 
has a high hacking rating. This way you can get into the doors to 
get the part. You want to make your way over to the room with two 
doors, one with a lock straight ahead of you, and a unlocked door 
to your left. Go through the left door and into the room at the 
end of the tunnel. You will see a bunch of crates on the floor, 
use your laser blade to destroy them. On the floor you will see a 
grating, shoot it. Now drop down and get the part and continue 
the mission.

In this mission you must protect a train that is delivering a new AC 
part, a back Booster Extension. So must hold out against a lot of 
aerial attacks and fend off and enemy AC. If you destroy them quick 
enough you will have time to raid the train for the part. It should 
be in the next to the last car. But by seizing the part you 
automatically fail the mission so you should save this part for last

In this mission you will have to boost down to the other end of the

drop down the long pit until you reach the bottom. Then run over and 
jump on the disc in the tunnel. About half way down you will need to

Your main concern with this mission is to destroy all of the enemies 
in the area of the radars. You can run through the inside of the base 
without fighting and take minimal AP damage. In the last area you 
can destroy a few radars and almost all of the enemies from within 
the hallway shelter where you enter this area by ducking in and out 
of the door. Once you have cleared to area go to the other and you 
will find 6 storage containers. Search the one closes to the mountain

destroy all of the weapons on both vehicles before they reach a 
certain point. You have 2 AC's assisting you which will buy you a 
little time. When the mission starts destroy the guns on the side 
of the transports that you are on. Now boost to the right of the

the point where they started to find the weapon near the out-of
