Hi, welcome to my single-player guide for Metroid Prime Hunters for the DS
portable system.
---------------------------------------------
FAQ Copyright 2010, Written by Banjo2553     |
---------------------------------------------

This guide is solely about single-player mode, not multiplayer mode. So if you
want multiplayer tips, I suggest to look elsewhere. Single-player isn't like
most Metroids. It doesn't quite focus on exploration, and is quite short. There
are no upgrades to collect, only new weapons, which run on ammunition just like
in Prime 2. There are still expansions to grab, like Missile Expansions, Energy
Tanks, and Universal Ammo Expansions, however. This also has a Scan Visor 
system as is traditional with the Prime subseries, but isn't as necessary, and
logs aren't as interesting. Finally, another major difference, is that there's
two endings, but the ending you get is determined by what you do in the final
boss battle, not by collection or how fast you finished. So getting 100% isn't
as necessary to get the full story.

This guide attempts to give a full 100% guide for the game, for both items and
the Logbook. Even though it's not necessary for the most part, you do at least
get a special emblem on your Hunter tag that says you got 100% on the 
single-player mode. And this time around, this percentage counts both item
collection AND Logbook completion.

This is the story as told by the instruction booklet. Enjoy.

---------------------------------
In the distant reaches of space, beyond the territories controlled by the
Galactic Federation, is the Tetra Galaxy, once home to a mighty race known as
the Alimbics. An advanced civilization, peaceful, prosperous, and powerful, the
Alimbics maintained stability over the region forcefully but judiciously. They
reigned over a vast region known as the Alimbic Cluster.

One day, perhaps thousands of years ago, perhaps tens of thousands, they simply
disappeared, leaving behind artifacts scattered across the Alimbic Cluster, all
protected by a lethal arsenal of the Alimbics' most advanced technology.

Today, for the first time in centuries, the long-dormant Alimbic Cluster has
begun to stir, delivering strange tidings. A telepathic communiqué, originating
within the Cluster, has been transmitted into the brains of some of the most
exceptional beings in our galaxy. The message is translated into a thousand
different languages on a thousand different worlds, but the message is always
the same: "The secret to ultimate power lies in the Alimbic Cluster."

This message has intrigued and enticed some of the most formidable bounty
hunters in the galaxy, inspiring them to make the long journey to the Alimbic
Cluster. Each of these great warriors has his own motivation. Some desire 
power--for themselves, their planet, or their people--while others simply
desire to hunt and kill, to prove themselves the best bounty hunter in the
galaxy. Now, it's a race against time to see which bounty hunter will triumph
and who will discover the secret behind this promise of "ultimate power."

The Galactic Federation has heeded this strange, suspicious communication as
well and has called for the help of Samus Aran.

Her mission: to discover the truth about this mysterious message, to protect
against a potential threat, and to keep the ultimate power from falling into
the wrong hands.

This game has two modes of controls, and each mode has a right-handed and
left-handed option. I will explain all these control settings. The default
control setting is Stylus Mode, right-handed.

--------------------
Stylus Mode (right)
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Note: You move the stylus around on the bottom screen during play to have
 Samus look around. Weapon switching is done by holding the stylus on the part 
 in the upper-right corner to display a list of weapon, then dragging the 
 stylus to your weapon of choice. To switch to Morph Ball and back, tap the 
 icon on the lower-right of the screen. Switch between beams and Missiles by
 tapping the icons on the top part of the screen. To switch to Scan Visor, hold
 the stylus on the icon in the bottom of the screen. Switch back by tapping the
 same icon

Start: Pause screen (can view map as well by using stylus to rotate, can quit
 game from here as well)
Select: No use
L Button: Fire (hold to charge/Morph Ball Bomb (zoom in during pause screen)
R Button: Use Boost Ball (zoom out during pause screen)
D-Pad: Move (scroll map during pause screen)
A, B, Y, X Buttons: Jump (double tapping the bottom screen also makes Samus 
 jump)

--------------------
Stylus Mode (left)
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Note: Stylus use is the exact same as above, but button use is modified for
 left-handed people. Everything on bottom screen is also mirrored.

Start: Pause screen (rotate map with stylus)
Select: No use
L Button: Use Boost Ball (zoom in during pause screen)
R Button: Fire (hold to charge)/Morph Ball Bomb (zoom out during pause screen)
D-Pad: Jump (any direction, double tapping the bottom screen also does the same
 thing)
A, B, Y, X Buttons: Move (should be logical which buttons do which)

--------------------
Dual Mode (right)
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Note: With Dual Mode, stylus use for looking around and rotating the pause
 screen's map has been switched to the X, Y, B, and A buttons. This seems to be
 akin to the "dual analog" type of controls for FPS games...except with 
 buttons.

Start: Pause screen (rotate map with A, B, X, Y buttons)
Select: No use
L Button: Fire (hold to charge)/Morph Ball Bomb (zoom in during pause)
R Button: Jump/Boost Ball (zoom out during pause)
D-Pad: Move
A, B, X, Y Buttons: Look around

--------------------
Dual Mode (left)
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Note: This is the same as above, with stylus usage limited to only Morph Ball, 
 weapon switching, and Visor switching, but button mapping is mirrored for
 left-handers.

Start: Pause screen (rotate map with D-Pad)
Select: No use
L Button: Jump/Boost Ball (zoom out during pause)
R Button: Fire (hold to charge)/Morph Ball Bomb (zoom in during pause)
D-Pad: Look around
A, B, X, Y Buttons: Move

Welcome to the walkthrough, which would be the main reason why you would look
at a single-player guide of this game, right? So anyway, this will be separated
into sections, and will show which scans of the Logbook you should have by the
time you collected one of the eight Octoliths and returned to your ship, as 
well as items. This is to ensure 100% completion...just for the sake of it.
This will also tell you how to get the true ending to the game. So...let's get
at it.

 ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ'-.
When you start up a new file, the game goes through a little opening sequence
explaining the story a bit, why you're doing what you're doing in the game.
After that, and a short little CGI scene, you'll be looking at your astral
charts in the ship. Only one place is available now, and it's the Celestial
Archives. Choose to land on it and we'll start playing!

NOTE: Every major room will have a scan list. The text itself won't tell you
what to scan except for things like Lore and Bioforms, so look at the scan 
lists to make sure you get what you need.

-----
Once you gain control of Samus, step off the Gunship and walk towards the door
to get a message on how to use the Scan Visor. Play around with it a bit, but
the only scans you need to get are the Gunship, the computer beside it, and the
weird spirit lore above the door. Shoot the door to unlock it and head through.
Head through the next series of doors until you get to your next large room.
 ________
|Scans:
|
|Hunter Gunship

-----
In here, keep your scan visor on. The blue scan icons on the glowing green 
floors and the helms go to the Logbook, so scan those. Also scan the helms 
after climbing up the catwalk that's here. To continue, approach the door on
the other side to find out it's locked. There's a yellow conduit beside it
though. Scan that to unlock the door and head on through.

Eventually you'll get locked into a room and will have to face your first
enemies, the Psycho Bit v1.0. They're not that hard, it just takes a couple of
shots to down each of them. Just be sure to scan one before taking them all 
out. Once they're gone, the doors should unlock, so keep going.

Next room is the Meditation Room. Use the Charge Beam to destroy the crates and
get Small Energy. Once you collect the Small Energy, it should be added to your
Equipment Logbook automatically, so no need to worry. Further along are some
indestructible crates with an orange wall on the left. Scan that wall along 
with the Navigation Chart on the blue panel before turning into the room here.
You'll spot a mostly harmless enemy called the Petrasyl. Scan it, then destroy
it to make it spawn a Small Missile Pack, allowing you to open the Missile door
here to continue. Before moving on, scan the Synergy Struts (glowing green) and
the Tetra Trade Map. Continue on to Data Shrine 01.

This circular room has a bit going for it. Head left and follow the path, 
killing some more Psycho Bits. You'll suddenly get a transmission from your
ship. An unidentified vessel has now docked onto the Celestial Archives, having
tracked your warp signature. Well, let's be careful...continue on and enter the
next door, entering the central part of this room.

Oh, you're locked in. Scan the Artifact Shield in the middle of the room and
a bunch of Psycho Bits will suddenly come in and attack! Take down this swarm
until they're all gone. A Shield Key will appear. These items unlock Artifact
Shields, allowing you to collect an Alimbic Artifact, one of three in order to
access the Stronghold Void. Grab the Key, then collect the Cartograph Artifact.
This will unlock the doors. Take the door that's between the two blue poles.

Destroy the Psycho Bits and follow the hall here until you spot an opening. At
this point you should get a message about how to use the Morph Ball. Go into
Morph Ball mode and roll through the tunnel here. At the end, you'll find your
first Energy Tank! Roll back, un-Morph, and jump up above the tunnel. Follow
the hall a bit until you encounter a new enemy. This Lesser Ithrak is just a
slight tough. Requires quite a few shots to kill, lunges at you, and makes a
LOT of noise. Ick. Anyway, after scanning it and killing it, the door nearby
should unlock. If it drops a Medium Energy, then that's cool. Collect/scan it
and go through the door.

Uh-oh, creepy music here. Wonder what's up...take a right and follow the hall
until you meet...something. He crawls into his Alt-form and takes off once he
sees you. He must be who followed us here, chase him! After emerging from the
Morph Ball tunnel, continue moving, kill the Psycho Bits, and enter the next
Morph Ball tunnel. Roll to the end to find your first Missile Expansion! Roll
back out, backtrack, and get above the first tunnel you came through after you
spotted this creature. Enter the door after taking out the Psycho Bits.

In Fan Room Beta, you'll get another message from your Gunship. This creature
you discovered is the pilot of the docked ship, and his name is Kanden. Your
warp signature was definitely traced. Climb up, kill the Petrasyls, and enter
the door at the top to reach Data Shrine 03.

|Scans:

-----
Take a left now. Enter the door at the end to enter the central chamber, and
where this Kanden hunter attempts to kill you. Semi-boss fight here! Make sure
to scan him and his Alt-form, Stinglarva, then proceed to shoot at him. Watch
out for the parts of his Stinglarva that home in on you, and for his 
hyperelectric weapon that can distort your Visor. After you deplete his health
bar, he'll call it quits and teleport out of there, leaving behind a Shield 
Key. Pick that up to make a locked Morph Ball door up above unlock. Climb up
there, Bomb it to open it (press fire button as Morph Ball to lay Bomb), and
roll in there gently. Un-morph, scan the Attameter Artifact, and collect it.
One more to go! The doors should unlock, so roll out of here, and enter the
door beside the two blue poles. Scan the Alimbic Turret v1.0 here, destroy 
them, and open the door here to continue.

In the Synergy Core, you should notice something peculiar. A blue panel similar
to the two back at the landing site, and a yellow conduit beside it. Scan the
conduit to activate this blue panel, which is actually a portal back to the
landing site. Nice! Use it if you want to save, but otherwise, continue up.
Enter the door at the top to get locked into a room with the last artifact, but
you can't collect it yet. Scan it though. This is the Binary Subscripture 
Artifact. To get this? First shoot the blue conduits on each of the four 
corners of the room. This'll make a Shield Key appear. Grab it to lower the
shield, and grab that last Artifact. Now the portal to the Stronghold Void will
be opened...

Enter the door to find the Stronghold Portal. Step into it to be taken to a
strange, alien place. Get the lore scan in front of you, and walk along this
weird area. Open the two doors to enter the boss room, introduced by a spiffy
CGI cutscene.

********************
BOSS: Cretaphid v1

This boss is basically a totem pole. Make sure to get its scan at the top. 
Don't forget the lore scan by the door. Basically, to get this boss's health
down, shoot down the blue spots on it, while avoiding the lasers it fires at
you. You cannot shoot the red spots, so wait until they turn blue. After all
spots are shot off (some of them drop pickups) the Cretaphid's core will appear
up top. Start firing Missiles at the core while strafing, because it'll shoot
energy shots at you. If done enough damage, the core will shine and retreat 
back into the body, signaling another phase.

Phase changes for Cretaphid are basically just lasers in different spots.
Nothing extremely difficult. Once all of its health is depleted, watch the CGI
cutscene of its satisfying death.
********************

Left in the boss's wake is one of eight Octoliths. These sacred items 
supposedly are the key to the ultimate power alluded to in that message. So,
I guess let's head back now. Uh...crap. Apparently we've activated a mechanism
that will kill us if we don't evacuate soon. We've got 8 minutes, so let's go!
And no, the portal back to the Gunship won't work while this security mechanism
is going off. Backtrack the way you came through! It shouldn't be much 
different from the first trip, just more enemies.

Once you reach the Helm Room though, that's when things get more interesting.
Guardians will appear and start harrassing you. These are robots made by the
Alimbic Order. In order to continue to your Gunship, you must take these robots
down. Once they're destroyed, hurry to your Gunship! Hop on top of it, step 
onto the circle that has red on it, and you'll be prompted if you want to
enter your Gunship. Do so. Once inside, save if you want to, and get out of
here!

Back to your astral maps, a new location pops up. This is the fiery planet 
Alinos. Let's make a stop here. Once you land, scan the computer and head on
forward, jumping across the sinking platforms. On the right area of the door
are a couple of Lores as well as the one above it. On the left are some ruins
you can climb up. Doing so reveals that a Missile Expansion is hidden here! Use
the Morph Ball and its Bombs to Bomb Jump up to the Expansion. Once that's 
grabbed, enter the next room.

a right, left, left, and straight to a room with Zoomers. Kill them to make a
Shield Key appear. Grab it and a Morph Ball door will unlock. Face the two ways
out, Morph, and take the left way. Follow the hall as straight as you can and
you should reach a greenish-part of it. Follow it, Bomb the door to open it, 
and at the fork, go straight to find an Energy Tank! Grab it, then head back to
the fork, taking the other way to see a tunnel you can Bomb Jump up to. Do so,
and follow it.

Collect the Cartograph Artifact, then go through the Morph Ball door nearby.
Follow it, un-Morph when you can, and scan the War Wasps before killing them.
Enter the door to the next room.

It's over, you have the High Ground!

...Um, anyway, kill the Zoomers here to unlock the door ahead, and take it. 
Kill the next horde of Zoomers to unlock the next door, take it. Ignore the
purple force field right now, but get the Lore next to it. Follow the hall to
get out into the open. Jump out and a force field will lock you in...someone's
attacking you! Must be another bounty hunter.

Dodge his magma shots while delivering some of your own back at him. After he
gets shot enough times, he'll retreat, and the cutscene will show you which 
door you need to take to follow him. Take the ramp below where he was, and at 
the top of it, take a right so that you can grab another Missile Expansion. 
Take the other path, scan the Blastcap, and enter the door to the Elder 
Passage.

Follow the path here (look to your left to see an Artifact you can't get yet)
and you should be locked in with a Voldrum spawner. Scan one, destroy the 
spawner, then kill the Voldrum and another Voldrum spawner should appear. Do
the same, and the hunter should appear. Scan this guy. He's Spire, the last of
the Diamonts. He's looking for the ultimate power to find out what happened to
his race. Sounds like an understanding fellow, but he'll stop at nothing to
achieve his goal, so shoot at him while dodging his shots until he comes down
as his Alt-form, the Dialanche. Scan it, and dodge him while continuing to fire
at him. Damage him enough and he'll escape again. Before following him, scan
the conduit here to make a Shield Key appear. Grab it to lower the shield on
the Artifact here, and grab the Artifact. Now follow him out!

Time to go all out. Let him have it, while dodging his magma shots and his
Dialanche attacks, and eventually he'll give up and teleport away, leaving a
Shield Key behind. Grab that to lower the shield on the last Artifact here...
go up and grab it. Now to find the Stronghold Portal. Keep climbing from here
and start jumping across the platforms up to the door at the very top. Take
down the Psycho Bit spawners if the Psycho Bits get annoying. Once back in the
Elder Passage, just step into the Stronghold Portal. There's also a portal back
to the landing site if you want to save.

This Stronghold Void is pretty much the same as last. Just follow it, no need
to scan anything here if you've already done it the first time. Get to the boss
and...

********************
BOSS: Slench v1

This boss with an extremely cool name is basically a cybernetic eyeball. Make
sure to scan it at this point and the lore by the door. At this phase, the
Slench itself is shielded and cannot be damaged. The Energy Blasters along with
the Slench itself fire energy weapons at you that you must dodge while shooting
the worm-like projections from the Slench out. If all the worms are shot out,
the Slench will go into its second phase.

Slench will detach from its spot and start hovering, firing faster energy 
shots. Thankfully, this means it loses its shield, so you can start attacking
it at its iris, which is the weak point. Make sure to scan it during the phase.
After dealing enough damage, it should shine and retreat back, where you must
repeat the process over until Slench is finally dead.
********************

After the CG of its death, your second Octolith will be left behind. Collect it
and start heading out. As is customary with getting an Octolith, you'll be
presented with an escape sequence, so let's hurry!

right side when you enter) to see a hole you can drop down to take you quickly 
out of the room.

Follow the Morph Ball tunnel out to the room where you got the first Artifact
to face...another bounty hunter! You'll have to fight him to get past. This guy
is Weavel, and is a Space Pirate commander whom Samus faced before, ultimately
obliterating him and leaving nothing but a brain and spinal cord. The Space
Pirates engineered a metal body suit that integrated with his brain and spinal
cord. So get the scan of this guy. After doing enough damage, he will split in
two and his upper half will crawl out while his lower half shoots at you. This
is his Alt-form, so scan it and follow his upper half. Finish him off quickly
and rush to your ship! Get the heck out of here!

We're back in space, and your ship detects two new locations we can access!
These are Vesper Defense Outpost, a munitions space station that is frozen over 
to prevent overheating of fusion-powered weapons systems; and Arcterra, a 
frozen planet. So wherever we go, it's cold! It doesn't matter which one you 
take, both visits can be done easily, but for the sake of the walkthrough, land 
on Vesper Defense Outpost.

Once you land, scan the computer and find the door that's semi-hidden here to
progress.

The Cortex CPU area is a complex area mainly highlighted with a 2D Morph Ball 
maze. Once you enter it, I suggest climbing it, either by Bomb Jumping up the
right side and going around to a Morph Ball tunnel, or taking the platform as
a shortcut. Either way, once you get to the tunnel in the middle, don't enter
it. Rather, use a Double Bomb Jump (plant a Bomb, plant another just before it
explodes, plant a third at the peak of your Bomb Jump to collect your next
Missile Expansion, then go below, across where the moving platform is, and take
the jump pads to a Morph Ball tunnel above.

Go through the tunnel, see a really weird set of background objects, and enter
a small room. Scan the four red points here, and a new weapon will rise from
the floor. Grab this Battlehammer. This new weapon allows you to fire powerful
arching shots that explode on impact. Doesn't have the impact effect of 
Weavel's Battlehammer, but it's good enough. It also takes down green force
fields, so use the weapon to get out of here back into the Morph Ball maze.
I wouldn't use the weapon too much, since all weapons share a universal ammo
system apart from the Missiles. Back at the maze, return to the tunnel in the
center and take it this time.

Once you enter Compression Chamber, you'll see the Stronghold Portal. The scan
when it's not activated goes to your Logbook, so make sure to do that before
you break down the green force fields blocking entry to the other side of this
room. Destroy the Psycho Bit spawners on the ceiling before taking out all the
enemies, scan the conduit behind where you entered this side to take down force
fields below, and the other one in the alcove that you'll have to keep jumping
up from the crate and attempting to scan until it finishes, taking down the
force field from the pillar below to reveal an important-looking item. Get the
Lores in here too, then return to the Cortex CPU for a brief moment: just get
to the bottom and enter the tunnel on the bottom left of this maze to get to
the lower parts of the Compression Chamber.

Scan the new Psycho Bit type, then destroy the spawners that go along with 
them. Morph and roll through said pillar that had its force fields removed to
collect a UA Expansion, which allows you 30 more ammo for all beam weapon 
types. Roll into the next part of the room down here and kill the Lesser Ithrak
to make a Shield Key appear. Grab it and force fields blocking a Morph Ball
tunnel down here will disappear. Go through it and grab the Artifact up here.
There's one last one. Drop down here and kill the Volt Driver Guardian to get
rid of the force field seperating the top and bottom parts of this room. Exit
the Compression Chamber and return to the Weapons Complex.

Go straight ahead to the room where we got the first Artifact. Take down the
spawners and Psycho Bits, then destroy the green force field here. Now here's a
new enemy: Crash Pillar. Its weakness is its bottom, and it attacks by walking
towards you, hovering above, then crashing down on you. Charge up Missile 
strikes and unleash them on their undersides as you move to deal the most 
damage.

Once it's gone, a platform will come down, so take it, since you can't go 
through red doors yet. A portal back to your ship is up here in case you want
to save...and I would recommend it right now, especially if this is your first
time playing. An actually tough Hunter fight is coming up. (The portals in VDO
Gateway are above the ship, so use the jump pads to get up there.) Follow the
halls that are apparently linear, since force fields are everywhere, and you'll
encounter said Hunter. This is Sylux. This Bounty Hunter is some kind of 
creature who stole Federation prototype weapons, which explains why his armor
kinda looks Federation...y.

But yeah, this guy starts rushing you with Shock Coil, a pretty dangerous 
weapon that sucks up your energy and gives it to him, and the rate at which it
sucks can get pretty disastrous if you're not moving to get the weapon off you.
Just do all you can to take down his energy. After enough is taken down, he'll
get into his Alt-form, the Lockjaw, and start running away from you. Chase him 
down while gunning him down! Use your Morph Ball's Boost ability if he gets 
away too far. He'll switch between normal and Alt-form to attack you (beware
his bombs, if he places a three-bomb trap around you, they'll all explode on
you for MAJOR damage) and he'll eventually retreat into the center, so follow
him.

He'll start attacking you some more and switch between forms like always, but
at least you don't have to chase him down this time. After a while, his OWN 
SHIP arrives and tries to gun you down as well. Scan the ship, as it's a 
one-time thing. Now, the ship can't be destroyed, nor its guns, but you can
disable the guns temporarily by firing Missiles at it. It'll be one less thing
to worry about while you take down Sylux. If your energy gets low, the crates
in this room provide good energy refills. Once his energy is depleted, he'll
teleport into his ship and take off. Phew, what a tough battle...

Pick up the Shield Key and a force field somewhere up here will deactivate,
revealing the last Artifact. Find the Artifact (kinda hard to describe since 
the map doesn't give compass directions) and the Stronghold Portal will be
opened. Remember where that was? It's all the way back in the Compression
Chamber, so backtrack (would be good to save again after getting that tough
Hunter battle out of the way) to that room, and enter the Portal.

We're in another Stronghold Void. It's the same as any other Void, so just
walk through it. What kind of unique boss fight are we going to get this time?
First a totem, then a mechanical eye...what next? Oh! Maybe a huge robot body
that uses cold weaponry! Fits the area, right?

********************
BOSS: Cretaphid v2

...Oh, it's just the totem again. Except more powerful. I guess. Yeah, as 
you'll soon find out about this game, there's little boss variety. There's
legitimately only four bosses in this game, with two of them being rehashed 
four times each. Really makes it obvious that single-player was just tacked-on.
Blegh.

Anyway, enough complaining, this one is a bit tougher solely because instead of
firing constant laser streams, it fires homing bolts of plasma. They're slow 
however, and disintegrate after a while (like 30 seconds) but can also be shot 
to dispel them. The objective of this boss is the same: shoot the blue spots, 
not the reds, once all spots are taken care of, the core will come out. Shoot
it 'til it shines and retreats, then repeat the process, only with more plasma
balls. Eventually, the boss will go down, and the third Octolith will be yours.
********************

As you pretty much guessed by now, an escape sequence will occur. This one's
more straightforward than others, since there's not much that gets in your way.
There's a Guardian, but you don't even have to kill it to be able to escape.
Pretty simple. I guess since you had a hard enough time with a Hunter battle
already, they'd figure they'd let you have a clean getaway.

Well, there's one last place to visit. And that's Arcterra. Land there. And 
yes, I made a Vanilla Ice reference with the section title. Anyway, here, scan 
the computer and make your way down this tall room. You could go with it in two 
ways: dropping to the bottom, or taking the actual path down. Since you can 
actually take damage from dropping too far in this game, I suggest taking the 
path down. You'll get a few scans this way, so it's better. Take the door at 
the bottom to arrive in Sic Transit.

As soon as you enter Sic Transit, you'll find out that a force field blocking
the rest of the tunnel here has made its visit, leaving you to walk outside.
Besides, there's a bit of a commotion over there...because two Hunters are
fighting each other! Meet Noxus, the blue guy, and Trace, the red one who loves
to snipe and is currently out of your reach. As such, we'll have to fight Noxus
and his ability to freeze us while dodging Trace's sniping. Make sure to get
the scan for Noxus and his Alt-form.

Just focus on damaging Noxus at this point. Whenever you hear a loud screech, 
that's from Trace, and he's about to go rapid-fire on his sniping...and he'll 
be a LOT more accurate. Take a cue from Noxus and find a place to hide 
yourself, preferably back in the tunnel you entered, and take potshots at Noxus 
while avoiding his shots. Eventually, either after Trace has tired down or if
Noxus has taken enough damage, the sniping volley should stop and full-on 
battle shall commence again. Once Noxus's energy is drained completely, he'll
teleport away, along with Trace, surprisingly. Don't worry, he'll be causing us
more trouble later...

Now that they're gone, that force field in the tunnel is gone now, so you can
explore some more. A Voldrum spawner makes its appearance though, so take it 
out if it'll prove to be an annoyance. Follow the tunnel and take out the
Psycho Bit spawner, noting the elevator in the alcove on the left. Continue,
you'll see another Voldrum spawner outside to your right, and an Alimbic 
Turret. There's something to scan in the turret's alcove. This is one of six
proxy locks scattered around this whole room that need to be scanned in order
to continue. Thankfully, half of them are in one spot.

Another one is up on the wall behind you once you enter a small corner room
where a locked door is. Another is by the first Voldrum scanner, in the tiny
room with a red door that's locked out by a force field. The last three are all
on the bridge in the center. You can use the aforementioned elevator to get up
there. Once all six locks are scanned, a Shield Key will appear. Exit the
bridge in the opposite side of where the elevator is, and take a right. The Key
is at the end.

Grabbing this Key unlocks the small door in the middle of that side tunnel. Go
back and find it, and open it. Inside is your first Artifact of this area! 
Nice. This will also unlock the door in that corner room. Before getting there
though, turn into the Morph Ball and squeeze through under the wooden boards
onto an elevator. It'll take you up to an Energy Tank, but stops short. Just
Bomb Jump up into it. Tank acquired! Now exit this enclosed part, and go 
through that door in the corner room.

Here in the Ice Hive, you'll have a purple force field on your left, a tunnel
to your right, and a drop-off to the main area in front of you. Go ahead and
take the drop-off. Scan the Energy Router that isn't blocked by a force field
and the other force fields will short circuit. Scan the rest, and the electric
currents will move to the large blast door here, but will unfortunately rile up
the Barbed War Wasps in their nests. Get the scan, and before taking out the
War Wasps, make sure the nests are gone. Then take out the swarm while dodging
their shots.

Once the enemies are all gone, a computer in an alcove will turn on, waiting to
be scanned. A jump pad leading back out will also activate. Take the jump pad
back to where you entered the room, and take the tunnel, now to your left. At
the end of the tunnel, you'll arrive in front of the mentioned computer. Scan
it and the big blast door will open. Drop down and walk through. Up here, a new
War Wasp enemy appears, and it's the Blue Barbed War Wasp. Basically fires 
freezing stingers. Take out its hive and the creature itself, and enter the 
room just ahead to the right.

A cutscene will show you a brand new weapon to acquire all the way up in the 
top of this side room! Just follow it and get in front of the mechanism with an
oscillating light. Scan it and some platforms for the Morph Ball will align
themselves temporarily. Get into the little Morph Ball maze on the side and 
start climbing it carefully. (Hint: to get onto the little elevator, just Bomb 
Jump straight up, the curved ceiling will propel you onto the elevator) At the 
top, get on the platform, wait for it to carry you, then carefully cross the 
platform bridge, follow the rest of the way to the weapon, which is the 
Judicator! This weapon fires supercooled plasma at a fast speed, which 
ricochets off walls. It can be charged to fire multiple blasts at a spread 
shot. This can also destroy purple force fields and door shields. To switch the 
primary beam weapon, hold the stylus onto the icon near the upper right corner 
of the touch screen, then drag to the desired weapon to fit the third weapon 
slot.

Use your new weapon to shoot down the purple force field here, which leads you
to a Stronghold Portal after crossing an ice bridge. So...remember this place
once we have the three Artifacts. Do note that there is a bunch of Lore here
though. There's also a portal back to the ship down below, so scan it, but 
don't go down there yet. Instead, get back on the ice bridge and look to your
left to see another purple force field. Destroy it and jump inside to see a new
UA Expansion! Grab it, then destroy the Alimbic Turret in here to make a Shield
Key appear. Grab it, and the force field floor will disappear, leaving you to
drop down (carefully) and grab another Artifact. Follow the tunnel here.

You'll arrive back at the portal back to the ship. Save if you want, but head
through the plant-infested hall beside here. The plants actually hurt you for
whatever reason, so shoot them down. Exit the side of the hall here to find
yourself on a ledge in the main room, with a Missile Expansion! We've just been
finding items on this planet like crazy so far. Grab it and enter back into the
plant-infested hall, following it back to the entrance. Take down the purple
force field. We need to go to another area now that we have a new weapon, but
before moving on, drop back into the main room. There's an alcove blocked by a
purple force field. Shoot it down, and grab the UA Expansion there. Phew! Now
exit this and get back to Sic Transit for a brief moment. From this corner 
room, jump up to the hall above, and follow it to a purple door. Shoot it open
and enter the Frost Labyrinth!

This room is basically just a giant, top-down Morph Ball maze. I'll try to make
sense of it for the sake of the walkthrough, though. Go right and follow the
curving path, passing a locked Morph Ball door, until you get to a fork. Go up.
Follow it until you reach a dead-end with a cracked hole in the icy floor. Line
yourself up (the stylus control helps here) and do a Double Bomb Jump up into
the Shield Key. This'll open that Morph Ball door. Before heading completely
back though, return to the fork and go down, following this path. You'll come
to a tunnel on the right, but it leads to a red door that you can't open. 
Instead take a left. Go around the pillar, then start moving up and right to
see a path. Follow it to find an Energy Tank! Awesome. Now retrace your...um...
steps, and enter that Morph Ball door. Follow the tunnel to arrive in a small
room with the last Artifact! With all three Artifacts in tow, return to the Ice
Hive, save using the ship portal, and take the Stronghold Portal.

It should be typical by now. Follow the Void, enter the boss chamber. This 
time, the boss is...

********************
BOSS: Slench v2

This thing again. At least it's a more interesting boss fight than a totem pole
of all things, but then that's just my opinion. The main difference right off
the start that you'll notice is that the Energy Blasters fire off a variant of
the Magmaul, and the worms to shoot off are invulnerable to normal shots and
Missiles. What's fire weak to? Well, normally water, but we have an ice weapon,
so that does just fine. Shoot the Judicator at the worms to damage them and
detach the eye from its socket so it'll start floating and shooting you. Once
it's detached, Missiles can take it down, but Judicator seems to be its main
weakness. Jeez, this feels like Zelda.
********************

Anyway, other than a weapon switch, this boss hasn't changed. Make sure to get
both scans for it before destroying it. Grab the Octolith and prepare for 
another escape sequence. Yeah, the usual stuff. One difference when you get
back to the Ice Hive, is the blast door is closed. Find another way out. Once
in the Sic Transit, you'll have force fields blocking the paths in such a way
that forces you outside. I'm pretty sure you can guess what's coming up.

Get outside and walk up on the middle structure and a cutscene will show a
Guardian showing up...but it gets sniped in one shot by none other than Trace.
He must've been hiding here this whole time! Now's the time to get his scans,
and unfortunately you'll have to fight him in order to be able to escape. So
shoot him from his perch. He gets invisible at times, so just track where his
beam comes from to hit him.

Eventually he'll come down and use his Alt-form. Get this scan and fight him 
off. It's pretty quick, so you'll have to do some fancy footwork to dodge him. 
He may attempt to hide with his Triskelion, which also makes him invisible if 
he stays still. Try not to let him do this and keep him on your sights, 
otherwise it'll be wasting precious seconds. Once he retreats, hurry to your 
ship! As you start climbing the Arcterra Gateway though, your progress will be 
blocked and three Guardians will attempt to stop you. Take them down as quickly 
as you can, then climb up the rest of the way. Eventually you'll get back to 
your ship. Jump in and take off.

Back at the astral charts...nothing changes. It's at this point that we have to
go back to places we've been to before and find new areas thanks to a couple of
new weapons at our disposal. The Celestial Archives is a good place to stop
again, so let's go back there. Notice that you've encountered all the Hunters 
at least once by now, so all four places in the Alimbic Cluster may have some
hunters that you refight at random points. Considering they're random, and
sometimes you fight Guardians at random times instead of hunters, I'll merely
make mention of the rooms where the fights DO occur. This will also be for the
other revisit sections of this walkthrough. Do note that, if you are somehow
defeated by one of the Hunters, you'll get one of your Octoliths stolen, so
you'll have to hunt down that hunter and defeat him to get your Octolith back.

Anyway, to start off, before going anywhere, roll under the landing pad for the
ship to spot a green force field. Use the Battlehammer to destroy the field and
drop down to look for a UA Expansion. There's a jump pad to take you out. Now
make your way to Data Shrine 02. It doesn't matter how you get there, via
normally or with the active portal here, just get there.

NOTE: The rooms where you can encounter Guardians/Hunters on the way to 
Data Shrine 02 are: Helm Room, Data Shrine 03

Once you enter Data Shrine 02, find a green door and open it with the 
Battlehammer. Enter and you may get assaulted by a couple of Guardians. Take
them out, and grab the UA Expansion in the middle of the room. Now, see the
side of the room marked by blue pylons? Go over there and roll the Morph Ball
through the hole to get...the Volt Driver! This powerful electric weapon fires
incredibly fast shots, and when charged, the shot has a wide impact radius. Now 
that you have a third weapon in tow, it's time to head to/return to Synergy 
Core.

Once here, climb up. See the yellow force field? Volt Driver can take care of
those now, so get rid of it and follow the hall behind it to an elevator that
takes you to a jump pad that takes you to a yellow door. Open that, scan the 
Lore nearby, and enter. Inside is a portal. Step inside to be taken to a brand
new area of the Celestial Archives! It's also a more dangerous area, so be
careful.

Welcome to Transfer Lock, a pretty darn big room. You also have a chance of
meeting Hunters and Guardians here. Once you enter, drop down and go right.
Destroy the Voldrums and their spawner, then go to where the spawner was and
look right for yet another UA Expansion. Grab that, then find a way out into
the main part of the room. Now, you've got a crap ton of stuff to take care of
in this room. In the front, two Voldrum spawners; on the bridge, Psycho Bits
and a spawner; in the back, Psycho Bit v2.0 spawners; and possibly a couple of
Guardians.

After taking them out, each Psycho Bit v2.0 spawner and its enemy takes down
force fields blocking a crevice. Down in the crevice are three switches that
need to be shot. Shoot them to make force fields in the front go down, 
revealing more shootable switches. Go to the front and shoot those switches to
make the room at the top open up. Go to the back end and enter it. Scan the
computer (the "hole" in the floor that looks foggy, it's actually a floor) and
a portal back at the Docking Bays will open up. It's the top one, so head back
to where you entered this room and find a jump pad to get you to the portal up
top. Enter it.

Now here's where insta-deaths start to come in. We're out in space now, which
means if you make a misstep, you don't just take some damage and re-appear...
no, you die. So here in the Docking Bay, we need to be careful...and you'll
probably get attacked by a Guardian here. Anyway, the first thing you need to
do is find the Shield Key...it's kinda easy. It's in the middle. This will 
lower a shield to your first Artifact of this area of Celestial Archives...out
in the platforms. Thankfully you can take a moving platform to the Artifact and
collect it. Scan the Lore here and take the moving platform back. Get the other
Lores, then get up on the bridge.

There are four other platforms here, with smaller platforms to take you to 
them. Go to the second-to-the-left platform to find a UA Expansion and another
Lore here. Get back, then go to the leftmost one, taking the portal to
Incubation Vault 01.

From here, you're stuck inside a room, but there's another portal, so take it
to be transported to the main area, where you'll probably be assaulted by a
Guardian or Hunter. Once the main Guardian is gone, a force field will open
above, revealing access to a Shield Key, which presumably lowers the shield for
the Artifact in this room...but we can't get up there. So take the portal by
the computer here to return to the Docking Bay. Next up, take the portal on the
far right platform.

-----
Here in Incubation Vault 02, we've got a bit more to do. Kill the Crash Pillar,
then take down the Psycho Bit spawners, then finally, you've got Electro 
Voldrum spawners. Get the scan for this new enemy before taking them down
completely. You'll also get assaulted by a few Guardians. After that horrific
ordeal, hopefully you haven't taken too much damage, because we're not nearly
done with Celestial Archives yet. Anyway, take the portal by the blue force
field (new weapon soon?) to get taken back to Incubation Vault 01.

Back here, we're up on the catwalks! So remember where the force field was that
went down? Go through, be careful not to fall down, and grab the Shield Key.
This lowers the shield for the second Artifact. Go collect it. Now take the
portal that's on the catwalk to return to Incubation Vault 02.

Except now you're on the catwalks of this room! Follow the catwalk and head
into the side room. Drop down and grab a new weapon, the Shock Coil! This fires
a stream of energy that can drain the life of enemies. The longer you have it
held on an enemy, the more rapid the energy drain is. Sadly, you can't use this
to heal...that's Sylux's lone affinity. Oh well, at least this weapon can open
those pesky blue force fields. Destroy the one here, then take the portal on
the other side of the room to arrive at Incubation Vault 03.

You should see a Missile Expansion right in front of you, so...pick it up. Take
down the blue force field up here and go through, then drop down. The portal
here leads out of the Incubation Vault portal maze and keeps you going forward,
so take that if you want to. Otherwise you can take down the Guardians and
Psycho Bits until they stop spawning. I'll meet you at Tetra Vista.

Once you're at Tetra Vista, you'll notice that it...well...has decayed quite a
bit. This curved room is badly damaged and outer space can be seen here. Don't
get too careless, as again, falling off means instant death. You don't want
that. Just do some platforming, some may require mid-air jumps soon after
walking off. And by soon, I mean split-second. Around halfway, you'll have some
Psycho Bit v2.0's bothering you. Take them out carefully while moving on.
Eventually you'll get to the other side, provided you didn't die.

The new room is New Arrival Registration, and we're nearly done. This is the
last major room we need to get to. But the first major hall has a new enemy in
three, which is the Quadtroid. Despite the name, these AREN'T Metroids, their
method of attack is just similar. They're basically quadruped creatures that
can suck the life out of things. If you get one on you, just turn into Morph
Ball mode and Bomb them off. Despite their size, they're quite durable, 
surprisingly. Take them down and enter the next part of this room.

You'll see a ship deck portal here on the other side, but you'll be assaulted
by Psycho Bit v2.0's. You can fight them or choose to ignore them. Just 
remember you can still fall and die here. Go and save if you wish...you've done
a lot so it might be recommended. Either way, start climbing up using the
elevator platforms here. At the top, walk through the tunnel to the next part.
Take the elevator platforms down, and look around for an alcove with an 
Artifact Shield. Jump down to it and you'll get locked in by a force field.
Scan four Lores here and a Shield Key will appear. Grab it to lower the shield,
then grab the last Artifact. Attempt to walk out and you'll be confronted by a
Greater Ithrak. This is the same type of creature as the Lesser Ithrak, but
this one can only be harmed from behind. Scan it and take it out, and walk out.

Jump down to the left, go around to the tunnel on the other side, and go 
through to the last part of this room. You'll see an Energy Tank. Go around to
the left and do mid-air jumps over to the Tank to pick it up. Now climb up 
using the platforms. At the top, enter the door to find the Stronghold Portal!

Head through the Void like usual and enter the boss chamber. What is it this
time?

********************
BOSS: Slench v3

Huh. Alright, another Slench version this quickly. This time, the Energy 
Blasters fire electric shots and the worms are invulnerable to all but the
Battlehammer. This also means this Slench by itself will be most vulnerable to
the Battlehammer. This battle might have an actual jump in difficulty if you're
not used to the arc of the Battlehammer shots. Now would be a good time to
practice it. As usual, the only real change to the Slench is having to use a
different weapon. The way to defeat it and what it does is unchanged, except 
for the Slench occasionally trying to ram you whenever it's detached, so have
at it.
********************

After its defeat, claim the Octolith it leaves behind and, once again, prepare
for an escape sequence. Just be careful for the most part since you can fall 
off easily. After getting past Tetra Vista, it's time for the portal maze...in
which all you need to do is find the portal by the computer for it to take you
to the Docking Bay. After a few more portals, it's pretty much the same escape
route you took the first time here, except with a lot more Guardian assaults.
If you have a steady aim, Shock Coil makes really quick work of them.

This section's title is based off an actual song title: Hot Fun in the 
Summertime by Sly & the Family Stone. Yeah, quite an old song, but ANYWAY, back
to the actual game. Let's revisit Alinos now. Take the portal to be whisked 
away to Elder Passage. Exit to High Ground. You'll likely encounter Hunters or
Guardians here. Anyway, a couple of things to do here before you move on deeper
through Alinos. First, get into the tunnels below High Ground and find the part
of the tunnels with a purple force field. Destroy it with the Judicator and 
roll into the magma.

-----
Here in Magma Drop, you'll be constantly taking damage. There's a lot of energy
pickups down here, so you won't have much to worry about, especially with five
extra Energy Tanks. Follow the drop here, and once you get to the bottom, move
right and up around. Now start Bomb Jumping. The magma should send you pretty
high with each Bomb Jump. Eventually, before you get to the top again, you
should find a UA Expansion. Grab it, then Bomb Jump back out.

Back in High Ground, get back outside. Find the tall purple force field around
here, destroy it, then take the path behind it. Ignore the door for now, as it
leads to a place we have no use for yet. Take down the Alimbic Turret and keep
going to get back outside (there's a Lore just before exiting the tunnel), this 
time on a high ledge. Find and scan the orange switch here to activate a moving 
platform. Have it take you across to a purple door. Shoot it open, get the Lore 
above it, and move on.

Welcome to the Thermal Vast. As the name implies, this is a huge room that has
lava in it. After rolling through the Morph Ball tunnel to the actual room, 
wait for a platform to come by and get on it. Jump platforms to get across this
giant room (may have to wait for the right alignments) and you'll come to 
another Morph Ball tunnel. Follow it and you'll be on the other side of the
fencing...and thus a new enemy is here. It's the Psycho Bit v3.0, and these
shoot shots of magma. These are weak to the Judicator, so take them out after
scanning one. Take the winding narrow paths to the Morph Ball exit tunnel. Take
it. There's a jump pad here in case you need to go back, which will be helpful
during the escape sequence.

Wow, this planet doesn't let up on the huge rooms. Now you're in Alinos Perch,
and damn, this place is downright huge. Big enough for a multiplayer battle.
(And this place is a multiplayer arena, so...) That said, you'll get assaulted 
by Hunters or Guardians here, and that would be a lot of them. They're weak to
Judicator. After taking them out, a door by the base of this room will open. 
Enter it.

Now enter the door that used to be locked.

-----
You'll arrive in the Council Chamber. Follow the hall here to the main chamber.
You'll encounter a mini-boss, a Fire Spawn! Scan it and shoot it in the head 
with the Judicator while dodging the lobs of magma it throws at you. After it's 
killed, a new weapon will appear. Grab the Magmaul! This weapon can fire magma 
shots that are susceptible to gravity. The shot can be charged to spread magma 
upon impact. This can also remove orange force fields.

That said, equip it and destroy the orange force field next to you. Follow the
little tunnel to find an Energy Tank at the end! Walk back. Shoot the nearby
switch from where the Magmaul was to activate a jump pad for later use. For 
now, find the other orange force field, destroy it, and go through there. 
You'll probably get assaulted by a Guardian, so destroy it, then get all the
scans here, including the one on the computer that lowers some force fields.
Ignore the jump pad that's just revealed, and instead head back to Alinos 
Perch.

Now to find three switches scattered throughout Alinos Perch. The first one is
on the lone rock jutting from the ground, it's not that tall compared to the
rest of the room. This is one of three switches that have to be shot. Do this
to position a jump pad on a platform. Next, go up the ramp on the side where 
you first entered the Perch. There's another switch to shoot. Finally, go up
the other ramp to the higher ground. Scan and kill the Magma Voldrums, and the
Alimbic Turret, and make your way through the orange force field up here. In
this high room, find your way up while taking down Psycho Bit v2.0's. There's
the last switch up here, in an alcove in the metal part of the room. Shoot it.

Now before you leave, there's a Missile Expansion to find in this room. It's
not incredibly hard to find; just take a left from where you enter the room and 
look around there. Now head back out to the larger area. Jump to the jump pad
that's been activated to rocket to the top of the highest point here. Scan the
computer to unlock a door. Now jump down to the next jump pad, and have them
take you to the recently unlocked door. Enter.

Back in Council Chamber, head to where the jump pad was. You know, the one that

Shriekbats, and you should come to what looks like an arena. And for good 
reason, you'll get locked in with some Magma and Ice Voldrums. Attack them with 
their weaknesses! Also get the scan for the Ice ones.

After taking them out, the force fields will disappear and a door leading ahead 
will open. Don't take the door though, instead go through the hall you haven't 
been through before. You should see a portal back to the ship that you can 
activate. Further past are some force fields and a computer, along with 
Petrasyls. Scan the computer and a Shield Key will appear along with the force 
field on the floor disappearing. Grab the Shield Key and a force field above
that is blocking another Artifact will disappear. Now drop down, activate the
jump pad if you haven't already, and use the pad to rocket yourself to your
second Artifact. One more to go! Go ahead and save if you wish to, but either
way, head back and take that door that unlocked to venture further.

Now jump to the catwalk, and jump inside the Lava Processor on the other side.
Have the platform take you down until you see a Morph Ball tunnel. Crawl inside

This is the Piston Cave, and a bunch of insta-death presses stands between you
and that last Artifact. Just abuse the Boost here if you need to in order to
get past. The first part isn't too bad, since all the pistons do is try to push
you into the lava, and there's space between them. The second part...not so
much. You have to roll between two walls with tons of pistons there, and 
suffice to say, you need to wait and find openings. After that, you're not out
of the woods yet. There's a 2D section with even more pistons, this time ones
that try to smash you into the ceiling or floor. Be careful here.

If you made it to the end without dieing, congratulations! The last Artifact is
here, but blocked by a shield. Just Bomb Jump up to the Shield Key, then go and
collect it. Now guess what? You have to go back through all those pistons.

NOT! A Morph Ball door opens to let you back in the Processor Core. With all
three Artifacts gotten, you can enter the Stronghold Portal that was in the
bottom of this room.

-----
As usual, Void stuff, blah blah blah. This time it's a rematch against the 
totem pole.

********************
BOSS: Cretaphid v3

Yep, this thing again. There's...nothing really that changed about it. It just
combines the laser streams of the first version with the homing plasma balls of
the second version. That's really all there is to it. The exact same strategy
applies to killing the boss: shoot down the blue spots, once all are gone,
attack the core that appears.
********************

After the boss, grab the Octolith and get your escaping muscles ready. Now,
chances are, if there was a Hunter you haven't faced yet, you'd probably 
encounter him in Processor Core or other rooms. So take him out as you escape.
The escape should be fairly linear, it's just that you may be assaulted by
Guardians in almost every room.

We're gonna do something a little different this time. We're going back to
Arcterra instead of VDO. The reason is because we need one last weapon, and 
that opens up the second half of Vesper. This weapon we need is in Arcterra, so
let's go!

Once you land, make your way to Sic Transit. There may be Hunters or Guardians
here. Find the orange door behind a Voldrum spawner, and use the Magmaul on it.

-----
Welcome to Fault Line. You're in the lower caves right now, so take the left
tunnel, considering the other side is covered in electricity. Kill all the
Quadtroids and force fields will go down. Get the Lores, and walk out into the
larger part of this lower area. Approach the red door and you'll suddenly get
attacked by an Arctic Spawn! Scan this and kill it with the Magmaul. It attacks
in pretty much the same way the Fire Spawn did. After killing it, your reward
is the Imperialist, the last weapon to collect in the game...or is it? Anyway,
this weapon is a sniper weapon basically. The game tells you how to work its
special feature. Double-tap the Imperialist's weapon icon once equipped to get
into the zoom mode. The R button can also do this for you.

.\\_______________________//.

You'll be shown a spot to snipe with this weapon. Keep that in mind. For now,
enter the red door by using your new weapon. You'll re-enter Frost Labyrinth.
Make your way to the other red door that you can see on the map. Basically just
head up, judging by the camera's position.

After that, you'll arrive at the Sanctorus. Immediately after entering, go
around where you could drop off to the room below to find a UA Expansion! Now
drop down after getting the nearby scan. Fight off the Greater Ithrak, then 
find a computer down here to scan. It just tells you there's spectral locks in
the area, not too important. So find the locks. One is to the right of said
computer, behind a wall. Another is behind another wall on the opposite side of
the room. Finally, there's one up on the ledge where the collapsed pillars are.

Scanning all three of these makes a force field disappear, revealing a sniper
point. Use the Imperialist, zoom in, and shoot it. This makes a Shield Key
appear. Get up there via the pillars and grab it. This lowers the shield for
your first Artifact on the second visit of this planet. And thus, we get
assaulted by a couple of Guardians. Take them out, then backtrack to Fault 
Line.

Use the Imperialist on the sniper point that was revealed back when we first
got the weapon to make a platform come down. Use it to get yourself up to the
upper half of Fault Line. You'll see that part of this room is completely 
blocked by force fields. Take the jump pad nearby and get to the top of this
tunnel that merges the two upper areas. Turn around and use the Imperialist
scope to find sniper points that you can just reach. Shoot them and the force
fields will disappear. Drop back down (not all the way) and go around the side
on your left to see a portal back to the ship. Save if you wish, and take the
door over on this other side.

-----
Welcome to the Drip Moat. This is kinda like an on-rail shooter room. Get on
the edge and part of it will move. You can't move, but you can look around. So
fire at the enemies that get in your way as you move through this. Enter the
door at the end.

-----
Subterranean. Yeah, that's the name of this room. The first thing you see is a
whole maze of force fields. You'll have to navigate it and find spots where you
can freely snipe the sniper points at the opening in the center of the ceiling.
It's kinda hard to tell you how to maneuver the maze exactly, so just go with
trial and error. Shooting all three of these opens up the elevator in the
center, so find your way there (hint: go left from the entrance, find a place
you can jump up to and do it) and take it down to a less complicated room here.

Once down here, just head straight to a Missile Expansion. Kinda easy. Now head
through the icy tunnel, then take a left. There's a new type of Alimbic Turret
here, so scan it and take it down before it snipes you. A Shield Key will
appear. Grab it, and the shield guarding the second Artifact on the other side
will go down. Go there and grab it, then head back to the lift and take it up.
If it's up, scan the thing beside it to bring it down. Attempt to leave through
the maze again, and the force fields will disappear. This means, unfortunately,
having to fight a horde of Guardians. They all seem to be very weak though, so
a few shots from...say the Judicator can take them out. Return to the Fault
Line.

On the way to Fault Line, you'll have to go back through Drip Moat. On the 
Fault Line side, you may spot a UA Expansion below the door. Once the ride is
over, jump down to the Expansion, grab it, then use the jump pad to get back 
up. I believe falling here can be fatal, so be careful.

Head to the snowy upper area across from here now. You'll get assaulted by a
lot of Psycho Bit types. Destroy the spawners, then destroy them, and a Shield
Key will appear. Head over and grab it, and the force field that's partly 
guarding the Artifact down below will disappear. We still have the electrical
mess though. That's simple though. Find the electrical conduits and scan the
computer that's between them. This will shut down the program and fully allow
you to grab the last Artifact! Get anything that needs to be scanned here, then
head back to the tunnels below and grab that last Artifact. Head back up here,
and enter the Stronghold Portal.

As usual, go through the Void. The boss this time, is the totem pole one more
time.

********************
BOSS: Cretaphid v4

Well, might as well get this boss completely out of the way. Overall, this one
isn't TOO much of a change from the third version...except...this one actually
moves around. Yeah...you can get cramped pretty easily here. Other than being
able to move though, it uses the same weapons, so same strategy, just have to
move more. For some reason, unless it's a glitch, the homing plasma balls... 
don't home in on this fight.
********************

For the escape after grabbing the Octolith, that shouldn't be too big. Granted,
you may have quite a few Guardian or Hunter battles during the escape route.
Nothing extremely major.

Finally, we arrive at Vesper Defense Outpost once again, to claim the last
Octolith. Once landed, make your way to the red door in Weapons Complex, and
use the Imperialist on it to enter...

-----
The Stasis Bunker! Now this is actually kinda where the game gets a bit creepy.
The "music" (moreso ambience) is a bit creepy, and everything's just silent.
Nevertheless, we need to move on. Move forward and kill the Voldrums along with
their spawners. Walk through the jammed door, destroy the Alimbic Turret, and
walk along the halls. When you're at a fork, just head straight and take down
more Voldrums so you can't be bothered. Eventually you'll see the unactivated
Stronghold Portal. Destroy the Alimbic Turret here, then keep moving. You'll
eventually get to a circular room with stasis tanks for Guardians. There's tons
of Lore here to get, so scan away. Now enter the small hall flanked by blue
pylons. You should come to a pillar. Jump onto its ledge and snag the UA 
Expansion.

Now to get some stuff going. Return to where the Stronghold Portal is and scan
the computer there. This will trigger a timed sequence. Another computer will
activate and require scanning. This is only temporary, and you have to get to
where it is (the entrance of this room) in a little under 20 seconds. Boost 
Ball helps here. Scan it, and a Shield Key will appear back near the UA 
Expansion temporarily, so Boost back and take the same path you did before to
grab it. Once grabbed, a shield on one of the Artifacts here will lower. Yay.
Go and get your Artifact, no time limit this time.

...And then, this happens. A bunch of Guardians break from their stasis and
attempt to attack you. Use all that you can to get rid of them. As a reward for
killing them all, a Shield Key appears behind a pillar in a metal tunnel by the
Stronghold Portal. Grab the Key, then go collect the second Artifact. Well,
this visit looks like it'll be quite short, doesn't it? It kinda is, there's
just a lot more to do with the third Artifact in order to obtain it, and it's
in my least favorite room in the game, honestly.

For collecting the second Artifact, the doors will unlock. That's great, the
one we're looking for is the one close to the Stronghold Portal. So take that
one.

This is Ascension. This only serves as an elevator to the next major room, and
since you can see outside, you'll see the outsides of that room up ahead, 
crackling, sputtering, and spouting flames. That place doesn't look too good.
There's also a portal back to the ship here before you enter, so you might as
well save. There's a task that requires you to do some speedrunning or else you
die.

-----
After having saved, enter the Fuel Stack. This tall room with a bunch of outer
rooms and all that stuff is probably my least favorite room. Follow the path
around the silo, and an explosion will happen. Now there's an energy overflow.
If you don't shut it down, the whole place will explode and...yeah. This is
timed. Quickly follow the path, take the jump pad, carefully jump up the rest
of the way, and follow more tunnels. Basically, find any way you can keep going
up. And be quick about it. Eventually, you'll be out of the tunnels, and even
if you have been going fast, the energy overflow is visibly approaching its
limits. Climb up on your left, go around, and step on the platform to have it
take you to the terminal. Shut it off quickly!

Phew...you saved yourself and the Vesper Outpost. In the cutscene that follows,
showing the energy overflow has stopped, you'll get a brief glimpse of a 
Missile Expansion! And you'll also be shown the Artifact location and Shield
Key for it. So now that the danger is out of the way, EXPLORATION TIME!

Drop down from here (just one level), take down the magma Psycho Bits, and find
the hole in the floor to drop down. Walk around, and scan the computer here to
unlock all doors and force fields. Now go down the ramp here. At the bottom,
you should see that Missile Expansion. Grab it. Now jump to the other ramp, and
go up it. Take the first entrance you see. There's a jump pad and a tunnel.
Take the tunnel, then take a left. Follow the floor to find the Shield Key! Now
for the Artifact. Go back out to the ramps in the center, and go up them. Take
the other entrance here, and voila! The third and final Artifact is yours. Now
let's get out of here.

Making your way back to Stasis Bunker, you can take the portal to your ship to
save, to be on the safe side. Either way, just make it to the Stronghold 
Portal, go through the Void, and face the LAST recycled version of Slench. Oh,
and we also fought the last version of Cretaphid back in Arcterra, but yeah.

********************
BOSS: Slench v4

What's the difference this time? Well, Slench is stationed in the ceiling. An
ACTUAL change is that the machine now fires freezing shots, and as such, the
worms to shoot are weak to Magmaul. Same with this Slench's weakness. When it
gets to its second phase, it actually attempts something different. It keeps
itself closed and tries to roll over you. Unfortunately for him, it's in a
figure-eight pattern and is easily avoidable. After rolling, it resumes to
flying with its eye open. Shoot it as normal. Overall, that extra tactic just
lengthens the fight. Doesn't really add difficulty.
********************

Yay for the last of the recycled bosses! Grab the Octolith and make your escape
back to your ship. There shouldn't be much complications to your escape. The
only thing that might be bothersome is if Hunters try to battle with you,
considering the time limit is pretty strict here unless you spam the Boost 
Ball.

Well...now that we have all eight Octoliths, it's time to use these to open
Oubliette, which you've been hinted at if you've been reading the Lores. Time
to destroy Gorea and succeed where the Alimbics have failed. The place to drop
off these Octoliths is on Alinos, so make a stop there. Head to the High Ground
and take that door I told you to ignore...the one that leads to Combat Hall.

Now that we're back in space, pick the new location: the ship Oubliette. Land,
and prepare for the final battle. Once landed, it should be noted that there
is no map for this area. Don't worry, it's fairly straightforward. Just have to
go through some rooms before the boss. Head on forward and take the elevator 
up. Take the portal up here.

You'll end up in a room with what looks like glass windows with symbols on 
them. There doesn't seem to be any meaning to the symbols...but you can get a
lot of Lore here. Once all is scanned, enter the door. Instead of walking 
forward, look right to see a Morph Ball tunnel. Go through that to be dropped
at a portal above where you were. Take it and you'll be warped to a room with
an Energy Tank! Now you have all the pickups this game has to offer. Exit the
room, drop down, then enter the big door. Drop down the glowing hole...

A cutscene shows all six hunters already trying to break the Seal Sphere, 
attempting to see if the power they are seeking is inside. It's more than they
bargained for, though. Gorea escapes from its prison, and it sucks the life out
of all of them. Then, it turns to Samus...

********************
BOSS: Gorea

So basically, what Gorea just did is copy the main weapons all the Hunters 
used. So now we have to fight a creature that uses the Volt Driver, 
Battlehammer, Judicator, Imperialist, Magmaul, and Shock Coil. His color 
doesn't match the weapons he uses, however. Rather, his color is a HUGE hint on
which weapon he's weak to at the moment. If he's red, use Imperialist; if he's
yellow, use Volt Driver, etc.

What to target, though? Target his shoulders. Shock Coil and Imperialist are
the best weapons to use, but you can use other weapons. After a while, he does
grow back the arms you shoot off, so maybe those two weapons are the best ones
to use. Shock Coil when he's blue, Imperialist when he's red. After both arms
are gone, Gorea changes form. He hangs from what appears to be his life source,
and you have to use the weapon you shot both arms off with on the sphere to
officially damage him. Takes a LOT of damage, especially with the Imperialist.
After the battle, you won the game!
********************

So, with Gorea gone, Samus has saved the Alimbic Cluster and...oh..wait...Samus
dies from the ship's explosion? Yeah...that's the bad ending. Well, how to get
the good ending? Let's get back to the battle with Gorea.

Have you noticed that there are what appear to be large, colored targets on
the walls surrounding this room? Well, these have to be shot with their 
respective weapons that their color represents. The order is actually blatantly
told in the Alimbic Prophecy lores, even though they appear vague. But in case
you didn't solve that, shoot the yellow target first with the Volt Driver. 
Next, the green target with the Battlehammer. Next, the orange target with the
Magmaul. Next, the blue target with the Shock Coil (jumping may be required to
reach it). Next, the purple target with the Judicator. And finally, the red one
with the Imperialist. Each successful hit should show itself in an obvious 
manner. After all six are shot in that order, you'll get a message. Continue on
the fight as normal, and after the battle, you'll be treated to another 
cutscene. This time, Gorea transforms once again, and you're transported to a
special arena for one last showdown.

********************
FINAL BOSS: Gorea 2

Now, here's the one thing you should notice immediately about this fight. Gorea
is completely invulnerable to all your weapons. So how to defeat this guy now?
Head down to the very bottom of this area. Now. Approach the shield at the 
bottom to be revealed a VERY powerful weapon. This, is the Omega Cannon. It's
a weapon of mass destruction that, suffice it to say, can actually damage you
as well simply by its explosion. After firing it, you have to hide behind
something to shield yourself from the blast. Is this the ultimate power? Who
knows. Either way, it's the only way to deal with this creature once and for
all, so take it down!

What's a little weird with this fight is that it can either go smoothly, or it
can go badly and take up a lot of time. It just depends what Gorea wants to 
do. Gorea either warps away and waits for you to get back to him so you can 
fire off the weapon at him again, or he warps away and stays away. Considering
the shots of the Omega Cannon are extremely slow, it's hard to hit him from
far away. That, and his weak spot only becomes available once you're close to
him. So it's kind of a predicament if he insists on playing keep-away.
********************

After beating him, enjoy the real ending!

This covers a lot of item-related things in the game, mainly covering 
expansions. This also lists the only upgrades you get in the game: beam 
weapons.

The only upgrades in this game are...the beam weapons, really. So this will
show you how to get each of the six beam weapons in the game. This doesn't 
count the very last one obtainable at the final battle.

-----------------------
Battlehammer
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Vesper Defense Outpost
Room: Cortex CPU

How to get: This is usually your first weapon, and it's technically not a beam.
 This fires small explosive shots in an arc, so this requires a bit of trickery
 to get to work right. Unlike others, this weapon cannot be charged; if you 
 hold the fire button, you just constantly fire Battlehammer shots. To get 
 this, you have to get to the top left of the Cortex CPU's Morph Ball maze by 
 use of jump pads above where the Quadtroid enemy is. Once in a small room, 
 scan the four spectral locks to gain access to this. In multiplayer mode,
 Weavel's affinity to this weapon gives a larger blast radius to his shots on
 impact.

-----------------------
Judicator
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Arcterra
Room: Ice Hive

How to get: Make your way into the ruins room that's close to the first 
 Stronghold Portal. Find the oscillating light and scan it to turn platforms
 for a Morph Ball path you have to take temporarily. It should be kinda obvious
 what to do, just have to be quick but careful. Eventually you'll reach this
 weapon up in a ledge if you're successful. Judicator is a cold weapon that can
 fire speedy bursts of cooled plasma that ricochets. Charging the weapon lets
 you shoot multiple shots in a spread. In multiplayer mode, Noxus's affinity
 to this weapon changes his charged attack by spreading a cold field in front 
 of him, freezing anyone close by.

-----------------------
Volt Driver
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Celestial Archives
Room: Data Shrine 02

How to get: This weapon is hidden in the central room of Data Shrine 02, which
 can only be accessed once you have the Battlehammer. Once in here, find the
 side marked by blue pylons. Roll the Morph Ball through the small tunnel there
 to get this weapon. Shots from this fire at a rapid pace, and the charged shot
 has a wide impact radius. In multiplayer mode, this is Kanden's affinity 
 weapon, which allows him to disrupt the vision of any opponent he hits with
 the charged shots.

-----------------------
Shock Coil
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Celestial Archives
Room: Incubation Vault 02

How to get: This is a little complicated, but to get this, first you must 
 understand where to go in the mess of portals. First, from the Docking Bay, 
 get up on the bridge, and go to the far right platform. Take the portal there.
 In here, do some cleanup of all the enemies, then take the portal by the blue
 force field. Next, bypass the Artifact Shield and take the portal on the 
 catwalk. Finally, enter the side room here and drop down to collect this 
 weapon. This fires a constant stream of neutrinos that can drain the life out
 of any creature it touches. The longer the stream is held, the faster the
 drain. In multiplayer mode, this is Sylux's affinity weapon, which heals him
 at the same rate he drains his opponent's energy.

-----------------------
Magmaul
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Alinos
Room: Council Chamber

How to get: This is during the second visit to Alinos, where you can access
 further areas with the use of the Judicator. The Council Chamber can be 
 accessed in Alinos Perch after taking care of the Guardians. Once you enter
 the Chamber, you'll have to fight a Fire Spawn. This weapon will be your
 reward for defeating the beast. The Magmaul fires...magma shots, pretty much.
 They are affected by gravity like the Battlehammer, so it's a little unwieldy.
 Charged shots make the magma spread upon impact and do more damage. In 
 multiplayer, this is Spire's affinity weapon, which makes his charged shots
 set opponents on fire.

-----------------------
Imperialist
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Arcterra
Room: Fault Line

How to get: On the 2nd visit to Arcterra, you must shoot open the orange door
 in Sic Transit. This leads to Fault Line. Follow the tunnels to...an Arctic
 Spawn! Kill it and you get this weapon. This is...basically a sniper weapon.
 Once switched to it, double-tap the weapon icon or press R to zoom. This'll
 help you aim at far away things.

This shows all the Missile Expansions in the game. There aren't many, but each
expansion gives you 10 extra Missiles. Check boxes are beside each one to mark
off which one you've gotten.

-----------------------
Missile Expansion #1 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Celestial Archives
Room: Data Shrine 02

How to get: From Fan Room Beta, take a right, roll through the Morph Ball 
 tunnel at the end, and instead of jumping out and going back above the tunnel,
 continue on. Go through the other Morph Ball tunnel and you will find this at
 the end.

-----------------------
Missile Expansion #2 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Alinos
Room: Alinos Gateway

How to get: From the door, facing your Gunship, take a right and climb up the
 ruins to see a gap in the wall just large enough for a Morph Ball. Squeeze in
 there as the Morph Ball, and use Bomb Jumps to reach this Expansion.

-----------------------
Missile Expansion #3 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Alinos
Room: High Ground

How to get: In the outside area, go up the ramp that's under the mess of doors
 that lead to Elder Passage. At the top of the ramp, take a right instead of

Missile Expansion #4 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Vesper Defense Outpost
Room: Cortex CPU

How to get: In the Morph Ball maze, get to the center of it, via either the
 elevator platform at the bottom or climbing up and around from the right side.
 Either way, once you're there, you'll see this Expansion high up. To get it,
 get under it and do a Double Bomb Jump. Place a Bomb, then place another just
 before the first explodes. Place a third Bomb at the peak of your jump and you
 should get this.

-----------------------
Missile Expansion #5 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Arcterra
Room: Ice Hive

How to get: Once you enter Ice Hive from Sic Transit, it should be behind the
 purple force field, but normally on the first visit you can't take that down.
 So first, drop into the main room, scan conduits, and kill the enemies. Spring
 back up and take the tunnel to scan the computer, opening the blast door.
 Follow the rooms, get the Judicator, and approach the Stronghold Portal across
 the ice bridge. Drop down and go through the plant-infested hall. Roll through
 the hole on the side as a Morph Ball and grab this.

-----------------------
Missile Expansion #6 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Celestial Archives
Room: Incubation Vault 03

How to get: This is kept on the upper levels of this room. To get there easily,
 first start at the Docking Bay. Get up on the bridge, then take the far right
 platform's portal. In here, do some enemy cleanup, then get on the side with
 the blue force field. Take the portal that's farther away from the blue force
 field, and you should be warped right in front of this!

-----------------------
Missile Expansion #7 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Alinos
Room: Alinos Perch

How to get: This is...somewhat hidden in the room at the very top of the Perch.
 Enter the room via the Magmaul on the orange force field, then take a left to
 see this in a small alcove.

-----------------------
Missile Expansion #8 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Arcterra
Room: Subterranean

How to get: Once you enter the Subterranean, navigate the force field maze and
 use the Imperialist on three sniper points to unlock the elevator in the 
 middle. Take it down to the lower part, and head straight to get this.

-----------------------
Missile Expansion #9 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Vesper Defense Outpost
Room: Fuel Stack

How to get: Climb to the top of Fuel Stack, then drop down to the icy central
 ramps. Get close to the computer and go down the ramp nearest it. Follow it
 to find this Expansion. Only advisable after the whole hectic energy overflow
 event is taken care of, obviously.

This shows all the Energy Tanks in the game. Each Energy Tank increases Samus's
energy by 100. There are check mark boxes beside each item.

-----------------------
Energy Tank #1 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Celestial Archives
Room: Data Shrine 01

How to get: From the Meditation Room, follow the room's contours and such. It's
 linear, so yeah. Eventually, as you approach the door that leads to Fan Room
 Alpha, you'll spot a Morph Ball tunnel. Roll through that to find this Energy
 Tank!

-----------------------
Energy Tank #2 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Alinos
Room: Echo Hall

How to get: Enter the Morph Ball maze from the side of the Alinos Gateway. Make
 your way to the Morph Ball door after unlocking it by getting the Shield Key
 from the Zoomers. Head through mentioned door, and go straight instead of
 turning to find this.

-----------------------
Energy Tank #3 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Arcterra
Room: Sic Transit

How to get: When you first enter this room, you have to face Noxus and Trace.
 Once the battle is over, explore the room and find six proxy locks to scan,
 which will open a door in a tunnel. Go through that door, pass the Artifact,
 and roll under the wooden planks as a Morph Ball to get taken up to this Tank.
 Bomb Jump to reach it.

-----------------------
Energy Tank #4 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Arcterra
Room: Frost Labyrinth

How to get: Enter this room from the Sic Transit. Take a right, at the next 
 fork go down. Follow the path, then take a left at another fork. Make your way
 to the upper right corner from here and you'll find this behind some trap 
 lasers.

-----------------------
Energy Tank #5 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Celestial Archives
Room: New Arrival Registration

How to get: From entering this room from Tetra Vista, follow the parts of the
 room until you are in the last one before the Stronghold Portal, and you 
 should see this Energy Tank on the other side. Just go around and make careful
 mid-air jumps to get to it.

-----------------------
Energy Tank #6 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Alinos
Room: Council Chamber

How to get: In the Council Chamber, after getting the Magmaul, destroy the
 orange force field closest to where you get the weapon. Follow the cramped 
 hall to find this!

-----------------------
Energy Tank #7 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Oubliette
Room: ???

How to get: Since this area doesn't have a map with named rooms to reference
 this, I'll have to start from the beginning. From the ship, walk through the
 doors, go up the elevator, and take the portal. Turn around and go through the
 doors. Instead of going forward, enter the Morph Ball tunnel to the right. At
 the end of it, take the portal to be in a hidden room with this last item!

This game borrows the whole beam ammunition idea that Prime 2 brought forth,
but this game's ammo works a bit differently. Each Beam doesn't have their own
ammo...rather, each beam shares an overall ammunition count. Power Beam is
exempt from an ammo system, thankfully, unlike the First Hunt demo...which
actually had Metroids in it, oddly enough. Anyway, here's a list of the UA
Expansions.

-----------------------
UA Expansion #1 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Vesper Defense Outpost
Room: Compression Chamber

How to get: Enter the Compression Chamber from the center of the Cortex CPU
 Morph Ball maze. Take down the green force fields with the Battlehammer, then
 scan the conduit in the alcove that has a crate below it. This will take down
 the force field around this Expansion below. To get down there, re-enter 
 Cortex CPU and enter the Morph Ball tunnel on the lower left corner.

-----------------------
UA Expansion #2 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Arcterra
Room: Ice Hive

How to get: After getting the Judicator, walk onto the ice bridge leading to
 the Stronghold Portal here, and destroy the purple force field. Make a mid-air
 jump towards it (walk off, jump immediately after) and you'll find this!

-----------------------
UA Expansion #3 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Arcterra
Room: Ice Hive

How to get: After getting the Judicator, return to the main part of the room 
 where you had to work on getting the big blast door open. There's a purple 
 force field here. Destroy it with the Judicator and grab this Expansion from 
 inside.

-----------------------
UA Expansion #4 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Celestial Archives
Room: Celestial Gateway

How to get: Roll under the landing pad for the ship to find a green force 
 field. Destroy this with the Battlehammer and fall down to a hidden chamber.
 This expansion is hidden here.

-----------------------
UA Expansion #5 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Celestial Archives
Room: Data Shrine 02

How to get: Once you have the Battlehammer, you can reach this...and it's quite
 easy to obtain. Once you enter the central chamber of this room, you should
 see this propped up right in the middle of the room.

-----------------------
UA Expansion #6 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Celestial Archives
Room: Transfer Lock

How to get: Once this place is entered from the portal in Synergy Core, drop
 down to the right and follow to the end where the Voldrum spawner is. This
 expansion is nearby.

-----------------------
UA Expansion #7 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Celestial Archives
Room: Docking Bay

How to get: Get up on the bridge that extends to four moving platforms, which
 lead you to larger platforms. Take the second-to-the-left one to be led to...
 this expansion.

-----------------------
UA Expansion #8 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Alinos
Room: Magma Drop

How to get: Once in Magma Drop, it should be fairly easy to find, as it's a
 linear, but dangerous room. How to find this room? Well, go into the lower
 tunnels of High Ground, and find a small purple force field. Destroy it with
 the Judicator, then take the Morph Ball into the magma. There you go! The UA
 Expansion should be on the way back up.

-----------------------
UA Expansion #9 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Alinos
Room: Processor Core

How to get: The very back of Alinos hides the Processor Core room, and a UA
 Expansion that isn't very well hidden. On the bottom level, find the Backup
 Processor via scanning, and use the jump pad inside. The UA Expansion, if it
 hasn't caught your eye as you were flying up, is to your left, very easy to
 get.

-----------------------
UA Expansion #10 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Arcterra
Room: Sanctorus

How to get: The Sanctorus can be reached by using the Imperialist on the red
 door in Frost Labyrinth. There are two red doors, however. To tell which one
 you need to get to, it's the one straight ahead for the most part if you enter
 this place from Sic Transit. Once in Sanctorus, instead of going down into the
 main area, go around to find this.

-----------------------
UA Expansion #11 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Arcterra
Room: Drip Moat

How to get: This can be found below the door to Fault Line in this. Just drop
 down, grab the Expansion while in mid-air, then use the jump pad to get back.

-----------------------
UA Expansion #12 [ ]
ŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻŻ
Area: Vesper Defense Outpost
Room: Stasis Bunker

How to get: From the entrance of Stasis Bunker from the Weapons Complex, head
 forward, go past the jammed door, follow the halls, and take a right when you
 see a fork. In the circular room, look to your right to see a small tunnel
 flanked by blue pylons. Follow that, then hop onto the ledge on the hanging
 thing to find this.
