Mega is a fictional skater and story character in THAW.

Mega missions[edit | edit source]

Out to Sea[edit | edit source]

After scaring the carnie you'll have to head out to the oil rig off shore to meet up with Alva's friend Mega. Grind the railing out to the nearby boat to do this. You'll have to pay off the captain ($100) in order for him to take you out to the oil rig, so if you don't have enough you can help out the tagger or do some BMX tricks to pick up some extra dough. You'll then be out to sea to the Oil Rig, so I hope you brought your emollient cream.[1]

KaBoom Boom[edit | edit source]

Once you're on the Oil Rig, talk to Mega. He'll ask you to help him out by grinding on the nearby cleat, then jumping off and acid dropping into a grind on the cleat right next to it. Next, he'll tell you to grind on a nearby cable then jump from it out into a wire lead in the water. You'll have to grind that and jump a gap in order to complete this mission. Note that the camera will go into slow-mo mode when you jump and Mega's pet shark Fonzie will try to give you a nibble. This can actually kind of mess up your concentration so be sure to pay attention to when you'll need to grind on the next length of pipe. After this you'll take the elevator to the top of the rig where you'll have to grind on a series of pipes in order to retrieve some detonator caps. Once you've retrieved them you'll have to grind the railings around the main gas tanks, and then ollie to a railing that will take you up to the top of the tank. Once you get there, do a sticker slap on the side in order to set off the explosives. It can be difficult to balance on the rail when you're going up and you won't be able to use your focus because it will go into a helicopter-like shot as you're going up the incline. The best thing to do is to make sure that your grind stats are up to around 6-8 in order to keep your balance.

Dismantle the Pipes[edit | edit source]

Now that you've helped Mega hike up gas prices for the rest of the country, it's time to snag some gear for the Skate Ranch. Head over tool Pusher #1 first. He'll ask you to do grind a nearby railing then jump to a ledge below it. You'll eventually have to jump to another railing but make sure you lean to the left before the jump in order to reach far enough over there.

Mega Size Me[edit | edit source]

Once you get back to the ranch, go talk to Mega. He'll want you to oil the crane by spraying 3 points along its tower. Hop off your board and climb up the ramp, then the ladder to get to the top of the tower. Once there, jump up and grab the lip of the left side of the crane control. Next, do a wall run-up to get to the area you're supposed to tag. To spray oil on the spots, just walk over them and hold grind while off your board. There's a spot at either end of the crane and one in the middle. Once you've finished that, you'll get word on the bad news. The Black Widowz gang has taken Boone Hostage in East L.A. because he was out there actin' like a fool. Onwards to Downtown and to his rescue![2]
