Useful Tips

Completing Wire Sponge's stage ASAP is imperative. The S. Chain can be used to cling onto the wall which leads to X's Arm upgrade. In later stages, it can be used to grab S-Tanks and Hearts with a fully charged shot.

The Shoryuken attack can only be obtained in X-Hunter Stage 3 after collecting all hearts, S-Tanks, and upgrades. After executing this move, if it connects with an opponent, it will severly damage or kill the enemy (including bosses and Sigma). This move can only be executed if X has full health and is necessary for a fast time.

Serges is weak to Silk Shot only in Crystal Snail's stage. It should make the fight go fast.

As far as anyone knows, collecting all the items in the game except for the Zero parts is the fastest way to go.
