Gears are small game hints and help in the first chapter of the first mission, The Beginning. They only appear in The Beginning. Gears are often confused with the in-game currency Gears (Currency).


There is a total of five Gears scattered through the map. Activating them give you the following hints explained by Blaze and Flank:

  • Initial area:
    • Alright, here are the basics: if something has a red circle under it, I can shoot it. If it's got a green circle, I can activate it.
    • If a spot is blue, I can move there. Bright, solid lines means I can get there in one action. Darker, broken lines take two actions.
    • Remember - I've got good long range, so try to keep me far away from enemies (and cactus).
  • First radar area:
    •  If you need to get a better look at something, try turning and tilting the camera. Just click and hold anywhere on the screen, then move around to rotate your view.
  • Second token area:
    • There are always 3 secret tokens hidden in every level. Each one is worth a bunch of Gears if you find'em.
  • Second radar area:
    • Flank has different strengths and special abilities than me. He's slower, but he can take more damage. I suggest putting him in danger all the time, instead of me.
    • HAHA! Flank has a big strong gun, and a powerful special ability called Doom Spin. Use it when I am surrounded by bad guys to make them unhappy.
    • I've also got a sweet special ability called Dash-And-Smash. It lets me run up to enemies and smash them with my gun. It may stun them, or cause an explosion.
    • To use our special abilities, just press the buttons next to our pictures down below. You'll need a target in range though, so keep that in mind.
  • Small Healing Flower area:
    • Flowers come in two sizes, Big and Small. Small Flowers can only heal once, but Big Flowers can heal many many times. Very useful - and tasty!
