  • CaptainCamper

    Updated with your feedback, thanks all 😀

    I seem to have totally missed the stripclub parts 🙁

  • There’s also a poker machine in the Stripclub Gameroom for +1 Ego and a ciger on a table for +1 Ego on the Clarifier chapter near the beginning.

  • There’s another +1 on the pinball machine. On both sides there are barriers to knock down, you have to hit them all on one side then hit a button above them. The left side is easy because of the second left paddle, I got the ego after hitting the right side but had done the left several times so it’s most likely for hitting both in the same game.

  • 747

    level: mighty foot, first gas stop, on the other side of the road are telescopes, use them to see sunbathing babes

    again stipclub: talk to stripper(stage) when she is standin and not dancing

  • for the microwave rat i did it for the first time during one of the monster truck mission ,and i didn’t gain ego

    so i think it’s not microwave rat or popcorn but simply use microwave

  • good idea 747 why it wasn’t done anyway i don’t know but good work keep it up

  • great job 747, that how it should look from the beginning, but why all of you showing only the early lvl that are ease to find ego

    Crash Course
    -After the first time you will be attacked by alien with jetpack look around and you should find 3 frisbees and some bag, trow that frisbee

    The Duke Burger Part 1
    -After you stand up in the beginning of this level turn around and go in that direction after few jumps and turns you will find your self in the storge room where you will find cigaro
    -2nd item is in the toilet with shrinker and expander. you will find there three cabinets, in the first one will be magazine you need to pick up
    IF YOU DONE EVERYTHING RIGHT IN THE EARLIER LVL YOU DON’T NEED TO ADMIRE YOURESELF IN THE MIRROR ETC.

  • http://dukenukem.wikia.com/wiki/Duke_Nukem_Forever

    This is the website where is the list of all maps CaptinCamper plz organize your list, and i don’t think that you get a ego bonus from getting a 1 000 000 pts on pinball (i got 1 700 000) or getting red card, blue card on the pinball

  • CaptainCamper

    I’ve changed the layout as requested and updated with feedback. Sure there’s a level or two wrong in there somewhere so keep up with the feedback 😀

  • but still np cigaro in the duke burger lvl !!!

    • CaptainCamper

      It was added before I’d even approved your comment, I got it! 😀

  • 747

    I think it would be better if you post for each level all of the possible boosts, even if you done them in a level before.

    I got 14 out of 14 in the stripclub, but i never used a calender (sure it’s there and where exactly?)

    the level you are looking for is the shrunkmachine I think

    • CaptainCamper

      I wasn’t sure of calender location, I remember it being on a wall and that’s about it lol I’ve changed it to shrunken machine pending more feedback 🙂

      I’m not really up for going through it again to add objects that are already on another map, I never really enjoyed playing it all that much lol.

      • 747

        I didn’t say that YOU have to find them all ;).
        I already posted the summary for some levels. wait and all gaps will be filled.
        I think it’s definitly better in this way.
        So if a person doesn’t want to play the game from the beginning can just look up in which level are the most objects that are missing and just play that level for all boosts together.

        So please change the style to that of my examples:

        level (displayed amount[there acually more]):
        1 ??? (for don’t know)
        2 ???
        3 take a piss
        bonus

        (i know it’s seems dumb to write for each level “take a piss” or “admire yourself”) but for a guide you might have to repeat yourself ;P)

    • CaptainCamper

      I wasn’t sure of calender location, I remember it being on a wall and that’s about it lol I’ve changed it to shrunken machine pending more feedback 🙂

      I’m not really up for going through it again to add objects that are already on another map, I never really enjoyed playing it all that much lol.

  • Captin Camper you got the frisbee trow wrong it is in the Crash course lvl for the first time i don’t know if it’s in the mighty foot lvl

    Mighty Foot part 2:
    -You will be driving on the bridge untill you will be run out of gas, after you kill all the invaders you will find on the other side of the gap a sheet on the right side ( where you will find gas and a pc, click on the keyboard)
    -On the other side of the brige where the sheet is you will find a spot surrounded by the fance, there are two telescope, use one of them
    IF YOU DONE EVERYTHING RIGHT IN THE EARLIER LVL YOU DON’T NEED TO FIND THIRD EGO BOOST ON THIS LVL.

  • by the sheet a mean a litte wooden house i’m not the best at english ;] i don’t remeber the word for it ;]] shelt??

    • CaptainCamper

      Shed is probably about right, thanks for all your feedback! 🙂

  • Ghost Town:
    -after you run out of gas, you will find yourself in a town, first bulding on the right is the church (you can recognize it by the cross on the roof) under one of the benches on the right, you will find magazine, it will grant you +1 ego
    -In the same church you have find magazine there is another item, on the left side of the church you will find first paper plane in the game , throw it of the cliff or something ;] +1 ego
    IT’S ALL VERY STRANGE CUZ CHAPTER SELECTION SCREEN INFORMS THAT THIS LVL (GHOST TOWN) HAVE ONLY ONE EGO ITEM

  • thx for correcting me Captin, thats the word i was looking for
    -You can microwave a rat in Ghost Town lvl but it will not grant you another ego point it you allready use the popcorn

  • yoo ;] captincamper correct the paper plane, first one is in the curch as i have write 2 comments up

  • CaptainCamper

    Changed the rat/microwave ego boost and added ghost town boosts. Thanks again 🙂

  • This is easy bu t you can add this:

    Dam Top:
    – first ego boost in this lvl is humiliating a boss by punching him in the groins (but you should allready done it earlier)
    – second one is defeating the boss, it will grant you a +4 ego bonus

  • Strip Club:

  • Can you add how many ego there is at each level? You can find that information under campagin where you choose level. Easier to see how many is left at the level then.

  • Shrunk machine : Part 1
    – after you get freeze gun for the first time, you will be let in to next room by some worker, defeat all the enemies, and look for double door, in that room behind double door you will find paper planes on the desk, throw them

      Adjusted the article based on your feedback. I took the game back yesterday so couldnt check to verify so there may be a mistake or two in there. I’ll keep updating, thanks for your help 🙂

    • I don’t remember exactly but, There was an ego item which is not in your list. The strip club, well.. I got a ego boost while I was checking the surveillance camera feed, Zoom in the white stain on the sofa.

  • I got +2 Ego at the pool table(I play the xbox version)

    Chapter 10: Duke Nukem’s Titty City 14/14

    Toilet – Take a piss +1 Ego
    Mirror – Admire yourself in mirror +1 Ego
    Glory Hole – Use glory hole in strip club restrooms. +1 Ego
    Pool – Win at pool table. +2 Ego

    Other question when i do the game in harder level i get some egos again when defeting bosses. Is it restet for each dificulty level? or is it becouse i started the game from begining on that campaign? Any clues? Have any one else seen this?

    • Captain Camper

      Updated, thank you. I’ve not restarted myself but I assume Ego boosts would all reset otherwise it would be a lil easy but not sure on that 😀

  • For the Damn its late, I think the 4th is in the bathroom in the area where the guy takes a big nasty crap and comments on it. Could someone double check this please?

  • In the Clarifier stage near the start where u see a dude get thru the air there is a cigar on table for +1ego

  • Thanks, I found in another forum that some ego boosts can be in multiple levels as the cigar, frisbee and boss endings etc. The ego boost is added to all dificulties. I have not confirmed that this is correct yet.

    Think the paper plane should be moved from chapter 14 to chapeter 16. In where you choose campaign level it says just 1 on each of does levels. I know there is a paper plane in level 16:

    Chapter 14: Ghost Town 1/1
    ◦Dirty Mag – Under seating inside the church.+1 Ego

    Chapter 16: Duke Dam 1/1
    ◦Paper Plane – Left side, throw it outside.+1 Ego

  • Captain Camper

    Updated, thanks for the great feedback guys 😀

  • These are wrong AFAIK…

    – Stripper – Speak to the Stripper after she’s stopped dancing. +1 Ego

    – Pinball – Score about 275 000 at pinball. +1 Ego

    – Pinball – Hit left/right barriers followed by button above. +1 Ego

    Stripper does not need to stop dancing (actually I’ve never seen her stop anyway), the pinball one is 150 000, and the last one only requires you to play for a little while.

    • Captain Camper

      Updated, thank you 🙂

  • So far in Queen Bitch I have found these on the PC version
    1: Curl the Weight +2
    2. Add the weights to the dumbbell, most are in the room but 2 are in the next room with the stack of explosives in the corner. +3
    3. Points for killing the boss – Not sure how many

  • I have all the ego items but never got the trophy for all that is man, why is that?? 🙁

    • Sorry, I never actually collected them all myself so I’m not sure 🙁

      • Okay I figured it out I wasn’t far enough, until you defeat the energy leach to get the last ego boost to reach maxed out ego it won’t let you have the trophy until than.

  • PB

    747 I got 444k on a good game you sure its 250k I got the ego boost anyway lol

  • Chapter 2
    After you autograph the kids book there is a table to the left with donuts on it eat them +1
