Walkthrough - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - ========= INVERSION ========= At the control of a turret, blast at the building in front of you as enemies run along it. The walls will crumble easily, so you don't really even need to focus on shooting the actual enemies. Simply destroying the strucutre that they are standing on will be good enough. This will be interrupted by a cut-scene. You'll be thrust back into the action as a swarm of enemies comes at you from the north. Take cover with the A button and then start blasting the enemies as they come. Gravity will mess up, and everyone will start floating in the air. That's your cue to continue to shoot at the foes as they float until gravity once again changes, sending you and your buddy flinging into the nearby building, walking sideways. Fight toward the enemies. Go from cover to cover, and pop out when you have a good shot. Keep moving forward until this gameplay sequence is interrupted by another cut-scene. ============= VANGUARD DOWN ============= When that's all done, move down the street. Take cover behind the car with A after the scene, and then take out a few of the enemies from behind cover. As they start to thin out, move down the street from where the enemies came from, being sure to pick off any of the remaining enemies that may have been able to avoid your initial assault. Russel will then pick up a new weapon. You can cycle through your available weapons using the d-pad. More enemies will begin to attack after this, so quickly get behind cover and pick them off one by one as they come, making sure to avoid the civilians that are running for the lives everywhere. Following this, run out of the alleyway. More enemies will show up, so just keep killing them and then move through the next courtyard. Enemies will appear in the building at the end of the courtyard, so take cover and then kill the couple that appear in the balcony. A few more will come through the alcove in the middle of the building, so take them all out from the safety of cover. Sprint to where they came from. After another scene, you'll find yourself in a parking garage. Stay behind cover and take out all the enemies. When all the initial ones are dead, a few more will come from the stairwell. Kill them all as they come and then move up the staircase yourself. Your goal is to reach the third floor by going through the hallways and snaking your way through the building. The path is already set out for you. As you move through what appears to be someone's apartment, an enemy will burst through a wall. Take him out with a quick melee attack by pressing B, then take cover and kill any of the other enemies that show up in the hole in the wall, and continue that way. As you continue to move through the building, things become a little more intense. Enemies will guard the stairwells as you move up to the third floor, fires will block paths, and explosions will keep you from helping civilians that are just trying to get to safety. The path through the building is a linear one, so don't worry about getting lost, and don't let the set-pieces confuse you. Just kill any enemies that get in the way and when you reach the third floor, a scene and an achievement will signify the end of the level. ===== CAGED ===== Follow your fellow humans through the camp. Watch the scenes, and then walk through the camp again to a lift. Once you're on the lift, it will automatically descend. You will now have a grav-link equipped. Go through the door that opens automatically and travel deeper into the cave. Follow the tracks on the ground. A pile of rubble will block the path. Hold LB and then release it to cause it all to float. Then continue deeper into the cave until you reach another impass where you cannot continue thanks to a large gap in the ground. Look up. You will see a floor being held by a support beam. The support beam will be highlighted in red, which lets you know that it can be manipulated by the red grav-link ability. To switch between the different abilities, click on the right analog stick. Once it's red, use it on the support beam to make it all come toppling down. This will in turn leave a narrow beam that can act like a bridge to cross the gap. Approach the beam and press X to begin walking along it. As you move forward with the left analog stick, cues of tilting the right analog stick to the left or right will flash on the screen to keep you from falling off the beam. If you do manage to momentarily lose your balance while crossing the beam, a quick press of X will see you Russel back on the beam and crossing the gap in no time at all. Once you reach the other side, continue through the cave again until you find a fence keeping you from continuing. Press X on the fence to get over it along with Leo. With the gate opened, continue. You'll now find two barricades that are blocking the paths to the left and to the right. Switch to the blue gravity and press RB to make things float. Then press LB to pick something up, and then toss it into the barricade on the left. In this small chamber will be stalagtites blocking the way as well as a couple of explosive barrels. Fling the barrels at the stalagtites to blow them up, opening the path ahead. Run through the chamber and follow the arrow until enemies decide to ambush you. From behind cover, fling a barrel or two at them. This will cause a cave-in of sorts, destroying a nearby structre to allow you to use it as a bridge. Approach it and press X to initiate a co-op climb onto the structure. Run up it, and then approach the dead bodies of the enemies you just fought in order to pick up a gun. Continue into the next set of tunnels. The path will be blocked, so backtrack a bit. Take note of the rocks blocking the way. Once again fling a barrel at them to destroy them, then continue through. Hop off the small ledge using the X button, and then a robot will attack. Stay behind cover. Don't bother shooting it with guns. Instead using gravity to keep flinging barrels and rocks and stuff at it until its health bar is depleted and it blows up. If you're having trouble seeing it, just toss anything you have at the bright lights attached to the robot. The robot will blow up after its health bar is depleted. ======== BREAKOUT ======== Approach the cell door and press X to open it. Then take a left and run to the window at the end of the hall. Outside, Russel will automatically be against cover. Move along the cover the only way you can, and when you reach the end of it, tilt the analog stick in the direction of the nearby brick building and press A to sprint to the next cover. Follow this brick building all the way to the end as well. Don't worry about being spotted by any enemies, because they simply will not spot you. When you reach the end of the brick building, tilt the left analog stick in the direction of the next cover. Press A. Then do it again, and again, and then quickly get behind cover to avoid being spotted by the enemy standing in the spotlight. Move along this cover until it ends, and then lean up against the next cover blocking the way. Wait for the spotlight to go by, then jump over the cover and sprint to the stairs. Run up the stairs. At the top of the stairs, follow the catwalk until you find a beam. Balance across the beam. On the other side, approach the open grate in the wall and press X to begin a co-op maneuver to get through. Walk forward a bit and a scene will play. Kill the enemies behind cover using your gun, and then leave this area. Take cover and aim toward the battlefield, where there will be plenty of enemies running around as well as a tank that rolls into view. Kill all the enemies from cover, but don't bother with the vehicle. An explosion will block the enemies from getting to you. Now survey the room you're in. Enemies will start coming in from the doorway, but before they do that, quickly grab the weapons off of the crate. Kill the few enemies as they come in, and then move out into the next area. A tank will burst through the wall and drop off multiple enemies. Get behind cover and follow the cover until a scene plays. From behind cover, first pick off the Lutadore Captain. Shoot him until he dies, and that's really all there is to it. Then take out the rest of the enemies, the ones that are above you and on the ground floor as well. When they are all dead, leave cover and move forward. Another scene will occur, and when it ends, you'll have the Gravlink at your disposal again. Leave this room and kick open the door by pressing X. Hop down the next area by pressing X. Then move through this place into the caves, being sure to kill any enemy that gets in the way using a combination of gravity attacks and your weaponry. In the cave, follow the path that you did before. This will lead you to the giant hole in the ground created by the robot. Walk around the equipment around the hole and when you reach the hole, chill out there until another cut-scene plays. ========= ROAD HOME ========= Follow the streets. An earthquake of sorts will cause you to lose your balance, but there's nothing to worry about for a while until a cut-scene plays. And when it does, quickly take out the enemies from behind cover. Move through the lighted alleyway. Hang a left into the small room in the alley to find ammo on a shelf, then continue through the alley until it opens up into an abandoned park. Approach the broken piece of bridge with all the junk on it. The objective marker will lead you right to it if you push back. Use RB to make it float, creating a ramp to walk up. Walk up it, and then be cautious as you near the door. An enemy will pop out. Press LB and RB together to smash the Gravlink into the ground, killing the enemy instantly. Go through the door he came out of it, and then approach the double doors in this dark room. Press X to kick them down, leading you right into a department store. Enemies will start pouring in, so quickly take cover behind the counter and pick them off as they come. When they're all dead, move into the street. A sniper will attack. From behind cover, use the Gravlink and fire a gravity blast at the sniper's location behind the billboard to make him float. Then shoot him while he's floating around in the air. With the coast clear, move forward until you see a flight of stairs, and then sprint up the steps. Behind the cover of the remains of the roof of the building, look down to see a few enemies hanging out by explosive barrels. Shoot the barrels to blow all of them up. An enemy will then show up on the nearby roof across the way, so kill him. Work your way down to the area where you blew everyone up, and then follow the path to a shutter. Press X to open the shutter partway, then press X again to move under the shutter. Run forward until a scene plays. From behind cover, get the jump on all of the enemies as they are walking around. Move forward and get behind the next wall. There will be an enemy in the second story window of a building across the way, so take him out. If you are having problems getting him out from behind his cover, use your gravity abilities to make him float into view. When they're all dead, run across the area and keep following the linear path until another scene plays. A drill will burst out of the ground and the enemies will constantly spawn from this thing until you toss a grenade in it. From your cover, you can actually throw a grenade far enough right off the bat to destroy the drill. Do this now and then stay behind cover until all of the other enemies are dead. Then continue until you reach another barricade that you have to press X at so you and your partner can bypass it. Walk down the street, only to be forced into a zero gravity zone. As you float, you need to tilt the left analog stick from piece of rubble to piece of rubble. Press A to launch yourself from one to the other, and continue doing this until you reach the objective marker. This will put you inside the apartment building, so run through the halls until you reach your apartment. After another scene, approach the hole in the floor and press X to hop down. Switch out the shotgun for the sniper, then stay behind cover and pick off the enemies as they come into the street from the left using the sniper rifle. Then a sniper for the enemies will appear on the roof of the building directly across from you. Kill him. Then be wary because another one will show up on the left. Then the right. Then two will show up at one time at both the left and the right. Take them out as quickly as possible. If you get shot, stick behind cover to regenerate your health. After this, a Behemoth will show up. This enemy mech is slow-moving, but it has a pair of gatling guns that are very powerful. Take cover and toss grenades at it from behind cover. It's likely that the explosions from the grenades will take otu the other enemies, so don't worry about shooting the other enemies right now. It will take about 10 grenades to kill the Behemoth, but there are plenty of grenades lying around in case you run it. Once it dies, kill the other enemies in the area and then move out into the street. ============ STREET FIGHT ============ Move down the street. Two drills will pop up. If you have any grenades, chuck them at the drills to blow them up. A tank will roll into view as well. Take a right and run away from them down the alley. Go up the steps and take cover behind the sandbags. Fire at them until the rest of the humans catch up with you and start opening the nearby shutter. Run to the shutter as soon as it is halfway open. Approach the partly destroyed wall in the next area and press X to co-op climb up it. Next move to the double doors and press X again. Then you two will break into the next room. Kill all the enemies in this room as they burst through the walls. Move forward, kill the enemies, and then keep going into the next room. Following the scene, you'll be back out in the streets. Run across the street to the other side, ignoring the enemies there. Then take cover and kill the enemies that come out of the door. Move through this building, killing enemies along the way, until you wind up outside with a turret sitting on a pile of sandbags. Take control of the turret and kill all the enemies. You can destroy the building across the way by taking out its support pillars instead of taking the time to shoot at all the enemies. A Behemoth will join the fight eventually but he's easily killed with the turret. When the enemies are dead, hop off this area and move toward the dead Behemoth. Loot its body for a new gun and then continue to the next scene. Once it ends, move around the large pile of rubble and run forward. Kill all the enemies as they come, and just continue following the linear path. Eventually, the gravity will switch, causing you to float in the air. Kill the other enemies floating as this happens, but then the gravity will switch again, which will see Russel land sideways on a building. Walk along the building, using the signs for cover, and pick off the enemies. Use the "back" button to help you find your way. Move down a ramp next to an overturned car, then touch the blue field on the ground. This will change the gravity again. Go through the hole in the building. Quickly kill the enemy that comes down the stairs, and then go up the stairs yourself. A bunch of enemies will shoot at you from the building across the way, including multiple snipers. Run through this area, ignoring them all, and then start working your way down until you find a ladder. Press X to slide down the ladder. Touch the blue field to switch gravity. Then take cover and take out the enemies on the next roof. There will also be one running upside down on a billboard. Kill him and then use a zipline to make it across to the other roof. Then touch the next gravity field and keep going until another cut-scene plays. You'll now be in another boss fight, this time against the Butcher, an enemy in a giant mech. You'll be in a parking garage filled with cover as well as grenades lying on the ground. Run from cover to cover and chuck grenades at it. When its health is depleted by about a quarter, the mech will stop moving, so run up behind it and press X to toss a grenade inside of it. With that, you can now freely shoot at the cockpit to deal damage directly. The mech will lose its guns, but it can charge you, destroying cover, and also use gravity attacks. Avoid it and fire at the cockpit as much as possible until the health bar is depleted and the Butcher is defeated. Afterwards, move to the nearby shutter in the garage and press X to use co-op actions to get under it. Run forward and then you will be blocked by a couple of shelves. Use gravity to lift the shelves into the air so you can move under them. Then you'll see two beams holding up a bunch of pipes. Use gravity to lift the barrels in the air and then fling the barrels at the wooden beams to cause the pipes to fall, destroying the fence and allowing you to continue. The next area is another zero gravity affair. It's just like the last one. Move from highlighted piece of rubble to highlighted piece of rubble by tilting the left analog stick toward it and pressing the A button. There will be one moment where rubble will be blocking the way, so you have to fling an object at it to destroy it. Otherwise, it's just a by the numbers zero gravity section, except there will be a few enemies to shoot here and there. ============ ROAD TO HELL ============ Move down the stairs and then approach the ledge with the objective marker in front of it and press X to begin the co-op climb. Then continue, fighting through the enemies and moving along the linear path. You'll wind up in a large, open area, with enemies below. If you have a sniper rifle, be sure to kill them from above. Otherwise, use the nearby zipline to get a ride down, then approach the broken ledge and press X to hop down into the courtyard. From here, start killing all of the enemies. They will be walking along the walls sideways and all sorts of other zany stuff, but just keep shooting at all of them until they've thinned out considerably. Then approach the next ledge with an objective marker in front of it and press X to co-op climb. Now fight your way through the area until you find a blue gravity field and step into it. Kill the enemies and fight your way to the next gravity field and step into it. You will now be walking down the side of a building. Kill the enemies and go from cover to cover until you reach yet another gravity field and step inside it. Kick down the double door, listen to the conversation in the next room, and then exit the building. Quickly take cover. You will automatically be equipped with a rocket launcher. Peak out of cover and fire it at the turret. This will damage it, but not put it out completely. Take notice of the large bus on your side of the field. Run to it. There is more rocket launcher ammo over there. Pick it up, and then fire a rocket through the bus windows to hit the turret again. Now move from cover to cover, killing the enemies as they come, and making sure to avoid grenades and to not stay behind cars too long as they can explode. Keep picking up rocket launcher ammo and shooting the turret until the turret explodes. On that note, a Behemoth will lumber into view. Quickly find more rockets and then fire at the Behemoth to kill it with one shot. Then pick up his weapon and move through the destroyed building until you find a door you have to co-op open. Then continue to the next objective marker, which will lead you right into another zero gravity zone. At the end of this gravity zone, you will fight through a few more enemies, and then find a mortar. There will be an unlimited supply of RPG ammo from your initial position, so just blast the hell out of the mortar until it's destroyed. Then move down there and follow the path to be back at the area where you destroyed the turret. Then regroup with everybody and follow them as they talk and the APC breaks through the doors. In the next area, take cover and walk slowly on the rightside of the area. Kill the enemies as they show up to protect the APC and try to keep pace with it. I recommend staying on the sidewalk because staying in the street leaves you wide open to attacks from every direction. Fight your way through all the enemies. The last one that will show up is one with a shield, so use gravity to leave him open so you can peg him with shots until he dies, and then the APC escort mission will be complete. A bunch of cars will be blocking the path. Use gravity to lift them out of the way and continue into the next street. Take cover as the enemies start showing up. The game will then suggest you use cars to throw at the enemies. Do this to kill a bunch of the enemies as they come in quick succession and maybe even snag a few achievements in the process. Run forward and watch the scene. Next use the cars to destroy the drills as they appear. When they're destroyed, follow the objective markers to the next objective. An enemy turret will be guarding the area. Use gravity to fling a car at the turret area. It will destroy the turret. Move to the shutter and press X to get to the next area. Kill a couple of enemies, and then walk into the zero gravity zone. Zip from rubble to rubble in this area and kill any enemies that get in the way. You will have to zip over to a pipe and then press A on the pipe to launch yourself up on the next building. This will give you a vantage point to destroy the second mortar. Once again there are an unlimited supply of rockets here. Use the rockets to destroy the mortar and kill the enemies. ================= EDGE OF THE WORLD ================= You start this level in a graveyard. Kill all the enemies that are over the fence, then quickly make your way to the destroyed structure on the right. Grab a rocket and fire at the turret from the nearby building. Then move to different cover to take out the enemies coming from the cathedral while avoiding the dude with the rocket at the top of the cathedral. Shoot the guy there, which will cause an explosion. Push your way to the cathedral and fight your way through it. On the other side, there will be another dude with a turret in another building not too far. Fire a rocket at it to blow it up, then continue until you reach a gate. There's nothing you can do but stand around and listen to everyone talk. When they're done, the gate will get kicked open. This leads right to a zero gravity zone. Zero gravity your way through the area. When you finally land back on solid ground, you will be facing a gap. Approach the gap and press X to leap across to the other side. If you are playing in co-op, you will be separated by your buddies at this point, but only barely. Move along the path, and you will see enemies across the way. Your buddies will engage the enemies. Help them out from your position. When the enemies are dead, use gravity to move the cars off of the beam that the crane is attached to. Then wait for your AI partners to walk across the beam. When they get to the other side, they will move the beam so that you can walk across it. Regrouped with them, move the cars out of the way using your gravity and then move through the narrow canyon pass. After the scene, work your way through the camp and kill all the enemies. Remember: USE COVER. Shielded enemies will show up to rain on the parade as well, so use gravity to lift them into the air to bypass their shields, or if you have a rocket, just blash them head-on to kill them. Move into the building that they came out of and approach the lever. Press X to pull it, which will in turn lower the bridge. Now move through the trenches. A door will swing open, kill the enemy that comes out, then go this way. Continue through the trenches until you find yourself in another building, with another lever. Pull it, which will finish bringing down the bridge. Make your way to the bridge. A couple of enemies will come out of the gate. Use your Gravlink to fling cars at them. Then a few more will show up above, so shoot them from your position. When they're dead, start flinging cars at the gate until it is broken open, then run over there and get to the next area. You'll have to move through a bunker and kill a few enemies. Then you will be back outside, where a Behemoth and two shielded enemies are. Lucky for you, there are explosive canisters tucked away in the corners here. Fling these at your enemies to effectively blow them up and destroy them. Go into the next building and then find the ladder. Press X to slide down the ladder. Sprint through the next room and the slave pens, making your way to the objective marker. This will initiate a boss battle with the Slave Driver. The dude has a shield that will protect him from all attacks, and he will constantly summon humans that he has turned into zombies (because we can't have one game without zombies nowadays) to attack you. They are easily killed. The Slave Driver will point his finger at you fire a laser. It's easy enough to avoid it, though. When he does this, his shields will go down, leaving you open to just blast at him. When his health meter turns gray, that means you can't hurt him anymore because he is about to bring his shields back up. After about a quarter of his health is gone, he will start lumbering after you himself, using a whip made of energy to attack. Just avoid his whip and wait for him to shoot his laser. Avoid the laser, then resume attacking him and killing the zombies that swarm you. If you get knocked down, quickly aim and shoot at his face to avoid being one-hit killed by his whip. Repeat this process until the Slave Driver's health bar has been completely depleted and he is dead. Afterwards, you will have High Gravity capabilities. To switch between the gravity modes, click on the right analog stick, as shown way earlier in the game. High-G is marked by a red color, and the regular gravity attacks are blue. Switch to red and look up at the gate. To the left and right of the gates are weights. Shoot a High-G blast at each weight to bring it down. Then the gate will open up. Go through the gate and activate your High-G shield by tapping LB. A melee oriented enemy will attack you, fail, and then leave himself wide open for you to finish him off. Keep going until you reach the lift and then press X to activate the lift. =============== INTO THE DEPTHS =============== This level begins in a zero gravity area. Zip from one object to the other in the zero G field until you reach solid ground. Grab the ammo off the desk and then run up the stairs to trigger a cut-scene. Then quickly take cover and kill the two enemies working with the fusebox. Then rush to the minecart and take cover behind the cart. Use the left stick to push the cart forward and pick off the enemies in this area. Move outside and then drop down and move around the crates. A short scene will play, and then kill all the enemies. Use the High-G gravity on the red highlighted objects, and make your way to the lift, killing all the enemies along the way. Use the lever to get the lift moving and take cover using one of the boxes. The lift will start moving. Kill the enemies from the safety of cover. There will be one section where a group of enemies will come out on some scaffolding that has explosive barrels on it. Fire at the barrels to kill the enemies, save ammo, and destroy the scaffolding to boot. Stay behind the cover of one of the crates and kill the enemies until the lift comes to a halt. When the lift stops, quickly get behind cover because there is a turret in the distance. Look up. There will be crates that are highlighted in red. Use High-G gravity on them to make them crash to the ground. Now use these as cover. Move from one to the other and all the way to the right side of where the turret is positioned. Now use gravity on the barrels here and fling one at the highlighted section of the structure that the turret is sitting on top of. This will reveal a few explosive barrels located under here. Shoot them to blow the structure up and then work your way around into the cave. Move through the cave system, hugging the left side. Move down the tunnel and approach the raised section to initiate a buddy system climb that will be interrupted when the tunnel breaks and you and Leo are separted from one another. Continue down the tunnel until you reach a turret. Press X to use the turret. Leo will be in the area below, battling enemies. Use the turret to kill the Behemoth down there as well as the other enemies. If Leo's health bar runs out, he will die and you will have to reload the previous checkpoint so keep that in mind. Leo will get to a crank that he can pull so that you can join him. You have to protect him while he messes with it, though, so stay on the turret and kill all the enemies that try to attack Leo. Do this until the enemies stop spawning, a short scene plays, and then you'll find yourself back on another lift. Press X on the lever to get the lift working again. Continue to protect Leo while the lift descends to his location. Once you meet back with Leo, kill all the enemies in the area. Approach the elevator. It will open, revealing a Slave Driver and a zombie with bombs strapped to its chest. Keep your distance from the bomb zombies, as their explosions can kill you with one hit. Otherwise, the Slave Driver fight is just like the previous encounter, but a tad easier. When he's dead, ride the elevator down, and keep your weapons at the ready. Kill the enemies once the enemies come to a stop and then exit the elevator to enter another zero-G area. This zero-G area features a new type of enemy that has melee attacks. They are easily killed with shots from afar, but if they happend to grab you, be prepared to hit X to counter their attack. Continue through the zero-G area until you land on solid ground, and then use a co-op climb to reach the next area and move through two sets of doors. Watch the scene and run forward, getting behind cover. A scurity bot will be battling the typical enemies. Kill both the bot and the enemies. It's wise to focus on the both along with your enemies so that you can drain its health meter relatively fast. Then when the other enemies are dead, follow the path right to an elevator and ride it down. ============= ENLIGHTENMENT ============= Walk through the building, pick up any ammo that you need, and then exit through the door to watch the cut-scene. After the scene, take cover immediately and start taking out the enemies. Zombies will rush your position, so be ready to take those guys out as well. When things calm down a bit, move forward and continue to take out the enemies. Hug the wall and a scene will play, pointing out another Butcher robot. Leo and Russel will automatically take cover. There are rocket launchers lying around for you to use, plus you can make the cars that are hanging above him fall down using High-G gravity attacks. You can also pick up rubble, like the destroyed cars, and chuck them at the Butcher at your will. With the Butcher defeated, a door will open up, with the objective marker pointing you right to it. Run over to this door and then you will now have to fight a Slave Driver again. He will be flanked by a bunch of zombies just like the other fights. Uncoincidentally, this fight plays out exactly like all your other encounters with the Slave Driver enemy types. Employ the same strategies. With the Slave Driver dead, walk over to the gate with the barricade. Press X to take the lock off and then kick open the gate. Grab the ammo next to the ladder and then start climbing the ladder. Move between the crates. After the scene, use the High-G on the red highlighted crates above to make them fall to the ground, which will create a barricade for you. Use the fallen crate as cover and take out the enemies behind the sandbags at the turrets. When they're dead, move up there and then wipe out the rest of the enemies here. Look up, and take notice of the drill that is highlighted in red. Use High-G to rip it down, creating a path for you. Go up the ramp that is created as a result and then take cover and start taking out the enemies that are up here. After a scene, you'll find yourself at the control of a turret. The enemies will flood into the area from multiple directions, so have the turret at the ready to blast through all of them. And when they're all dead, the chapter is over! ====== REVEAL ====== The shuttle will come to a stop, leaving you to collect a bunch of ammo that is lying around outside. Gather the ammo and approach the next objective marker and press X for a co-op climb to the higher level. Continue walking until the enemies start showing up. Take cover and start picking them off. Next is zero gravity. Zoom from rubble to rubble using the zero gravity. As you move through the tunnel, the ninja-like Lutadores from earlier will attack and interrupt your zero gravity flying around. Kill them until you wind up in the next area on solid ground. Get through the doors and when you step out into a larger area, you'll find robots attacking the other enemies. Take cover and shoot the robots from afar. The closer they are, the more of a threat they pose because they can hover above your head. A Securitybot will show up now and start spawning more of the smaller robots. Focus your attention mainly on the Securitybot so you can stop the other robots from spawning. However, if the other robots start getting closer, be sure to take them out of the air. Use your shield as much as possible. There's also a special rocket launcher in the area that fires multiple rockets at once, but it's safer to just stay where you are and shoot the thing from your initial entry into the room. Move to the next objective marker and tap X for another co-op climb. Next is another zero gravity segment. Robots will start flying in as you continue zipping along in the zero gravity field. Stay still at one of the platforms and shoot them out of the air before continuing with your zero gravity ventures. Once you land on solid ground, hang a left and in the next room, you will see the "big reveal"...go through the next door to end the chapter. ======= RED SKY ======= Sprint your way through this area. Don't worry about the lava and rocks and stuff. None of it is a big deal. Continue until you see more enemies, both the robots and the more typical enemy types. Fling explosive canisters at them with your gravity powers and push forward. You can work together to take out the robots if you'd like. Just keep pushing forward, cover to cover. The next area will open up a bit, with enemies all over the place, including on a bridge. Zombies will rush you, but stay back so you can kill the guys on the bridge first. Start moving to the left as you walk forward, as there are more enemies at raised positions that can pose a threat. Kill them and then move forward and go through the ground forces. Go through the tunnel and then take cover, killing the robots as they show up. Then step into the gravity field to change perspectives. Immediately take cover again and kill the enemies from the safety of cover. When they're dead, move to where they were and step into the next gravity field. Then sprint forward and step into the next gravity field after that. Continue into the cavern, killing all the enemies that you see along the way. Keep going until you get into another zero gravity field. Zoom from platform to platform like you've always done, killing all of the enemies that you see in the process. A short scene will see you and Leo repositioning yourself automatically in zero gravity, leaving you another stretch of zero gravity space to fly around in. Kill the enemies as you go and when you land on solid ground, continue forward and wipe out the enemies here. A wooden barricade will block the path. Shoot gravity into the lava, which will create a floating blob. Grab the blob with your gravity powers and then fling the blob at the barricade to burn down the barricade. A few zombies will come through, so quickly take them out and then continue. Go up the ramp and then use the zipline to zip down to the next area. Move forward and hop down. A Brute will then show up, with a lavathrower! Yes, a freaking lavathrower. Quickly get behind cover and start chucking grenades at the Brute. When your grenade supply has been exhausted, start throwing blobs of lava at it. Fight lava with lava. Just like that old saying! When the Brute is dead, you will have the lavathrower on you. Move into the next cavern and you will see another wooden barricade. Use the lavathrower on the barricade to burn it down and then move into the next area, on top of some crates. Burn down the enemies. Move along the top of the crates to reach the next area, where zombies will swarm, so take them out with the lavathrower some more. Then continue into the next area, take cover, and kill the enemies. Move from crate to crate to avoid taking damage from the turret and continue to mow down the enemies. Move to the right wall to grab one of those rocket launchers with multiple missiles, and fire it at the building with the turret from the side in order to take it down and then continue into the next area. Approach the ledge and press X to initiate a co-op buddy climb. You'll now have to fight a bunch of zombies as well as another Slave Driver. This fight goes like all the other fights that have come before involving these guys, except you have a lot more room to maneuver, which makes the fight much easier than before. You'll have plenty of room to avoid the zombies and to fight the Slave Driver. Take out any stragglers afterward. ============= DEJA VANGUARD ============= Like always, there's some ammo to grab at the start of this ammo. Enemies will be patrolling nearby. Engage them when ready and start killing your way through them all. Approach the gate and a bomb zombie will run into it, blowing it up, and clearing the path for you. A couple of bigger melee enemies will charge after, so kill them and then continue and you will start fighting women Lutadores as well as a Brute that will be patrolling a story above your location. He will eventually come down to fight you. Use your most powerful weapons against him, but if you run out of ammo, you can use lava blobs to fling at him that also do a decent amount of damage. When they're all dead, move to the gate that is barricaded. Press X to lift up the barricade and continue through the gate. Grab any ammo on the ground and then take cover in the next hallway. Bomb zombies will charge, so stay behind cover and blow them up from the safety of cover. Kill the other remaining enemies, and then more will start piling in through the window and collect any ammo in this room before continuining. Approach the shutter and press X. When the shutter opens, continue into the next zero gravity area and start zipping from platform to platform like you usually do. As you start getting in between buildings, there will be enemies walking up the side of the buildings, so be sure to take them out as you zip along until you finally get back onto solid ground. Take cover behind a destroyed car and start picking off the enemies here. As you move up this area, there will be snipers and robots. Luckily there will be sniper rifles lying around as well, so use them to pick off the enemies that are at a distance. When this is done, you will be back in another zero gravity segment. Zip along from platform to platform, kill the enemies that are around and then land in the partly destroyed building. A Behemoth will come out of the elevator and start reigning hell on you. Quickly take cover, popping out only every few seconds to blast him before he can kill you. When his health bar has been drained about halfway, then he will turn away, revealing his back. Shoot it directly until his health bar is completely depleted. When he's dead, go into the elevator. ========= REVERSION ========= Take cover, kill the enemies, and then move forward, taking cover inside the building. A Brute will appear, but there are rocket launchers in this building that will help you out as well. If you run out of rockets, there is also a small hole in the ground with lava in it. Create a lava blob with it and then fire it at the Brute in case you run out of ammo or you want to conserve your rockets for something else. With the first Brute dead, another one will take its place. Use the same strategy as you just did to take it out. Then when everything is dead, approach the large hole in the ground and press X to zero G your way into the next part of the stage. You will be in zero gravity area. Move forward toward the bright light, using the debris in this zero gravity segment as always. There will be enemies in the distance, so take them out as you continue to float from point to point. When you reach the bright light, this will open up into yet another zero gravity section. A large beam will blast through the area, so be sure to avoid it by hanging on to the cover. From the cover, take out the enemies and wait for the beam to blast again. Then start moving from area to area using the zero gravity jumps. You can tell when the laser is about to blast again when the middle objects start to light up. You want to get through this tunnel in a zig zag pattern as you float around in zero gravity. Keep floating and zooming around until you get re-positioned into yet ANOTHER zero G section. Zoom forward and now you will have to fight Securitybots. Just shoot at them from your position. Then continue zipping forward and shooting the enemies as you go (there's a lot of them). When you finally reach the end of this hall, you'll be back on your own two feet! Approach the large door and wait for it to open. A drawbridge will extend, so walk across and then a cut-scene will trigger. This will bleed directly into the final boss fight with Kiltehr. Kiltehr will have shields, plus a regular health meter. Whenever his meters are grayed out, don't bother shooting at him because it won't do anything. Otherwise, lay into him to drain his shield. To counter-act his shield, use a shield of your own so that his attacks don't do anything to harm you. Once his shield has been completely drained, his health meter will drain incredibly fast. Just lay into him as much as possible when his shields go down and he will be dead in no time. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 3.
