  4. Human Plus

    There are a total of 10 human plus upgrades that a player can obtain for negative debt incurred during game play. Amassing a debt of -50,000 credits or greater will result in a cut scene in which it is implied you have been selected to become a human plus pilot. Once the cut scene is over the game will restart with all missions undone, your credits at zero and you will have any parts in your garage that you purchased before reaching the debt limit. This can be done 8 times for a total of 8 upgrades. Each time the cut scene is the same so keep count. Once the game is completed with all missions done and all parts collected 2 more upgrades will become available.
