The guide to The Surge will help players complete the game in 100%. It contains a walkthrough for the main story and various advice related to combat, equipment management, character development and item crafting – things that weren’t fully explained in the game. The guide also contains tips for boss fights. It will also help you find all audio logs and secret weapons available in the levels. The last part of the guide is a list of achievements / trophies and information how to unlock them.

The Surge takes place in a post-apocalyptic world controlled by machines. The protagonist faces robots and modified humans. He has access to an exoskeleton and items that can be obtained in the game world or crafted from the resources. Character development is limited and mostly focuses on modifying and upgrading the exoskeleton with better energy parameters and implants. The combat in The Surge isn’t easy, which greatly improves the difficulty of the game, but it is advanced enough for the player to find their own style and perfect it.

The guide to The Surge contains:

  • A complete walkthrough for the story;
  • Advice related to, among other things, character development and combat;

The Surge Video Game

  • genre: RPG
  • developer: Deck13 Interactive
  • publisher: Focus Home Interactive
  • platform: PC, XONE, PS4

The Surge is an action RPG set in dark science-fiction world. The game takes us 60-70 years in the future, to an age after humanity’s technology has turned against it, bringing ruin to the entire planet. With the advancement of machines, most of the jobs up to now performed by humans became unnecessary. Those who survived were forced to leave the overpopulated towns and head for rural areas looking for work.

This post-apocalyptic world is home to artificially modified humans as well as some more inhuman inhabitants. Although most humans use popular exoskeletons, created to boost effectiveness and abilities of people. Thus, we don’t play as soldier, but rather an ordinary human in possession of customizable exoskeleton.

The game’s world is shown from third-person perspective. Thanks to the employment of modern technology and the aforementioned exoskeletons, the fights are more dynamic than in competing titles. One of the features that sets The Surge apart from competition is its unique and very extensive crafting and upgrade system, which is deeply connected to fighting.

More About The Surge

The Surge: futuristic Dark Souls by the creators of Lords of the Fallen

We�ve spoken with the game�s lead designer Timo Treffer and today we can share what we know concerning the differences, initial concepts and the plot of the recently announced science fiction action-RPG � The Surge.

In this chapter you will find useful advice that will help you start the game and learn good combat habits. It also contains information about executions and the potential death of the protagonist.

Advice

Combat scenes look impressive, especially during an execution - Combat tips for The Surge - Advice - The Surge Game Guide
Combat scenes look impressive, especially during an execution

  1. You use two keys to attack – horizontal and vertical attack. Early in the game you won’t notice much difference between these attacks, but after some time, once you determine a specific fight style (mostly based on the equipment you wear), you will be able to perform some advanced combinations. By holding a key you increase attack strength but delay its activation.
  2. The protagonist cannot climb or jump; he can only jump over obstacles.
  3. You should attack while running – this will give you more strength and you might appear behind opponent’s back. However, it is not an effective way while dragging heavy equipment.
  4. Your attack can cancel enemy attack attempt. After some time you will learn to recognize the right time to perform a dodge, to defend yourself and to dodge opponent’s attack. However, it is highly dependent on the weapon you use and your equipment (general speed of the character).
  5. Learn to jump back – you will save stamina that is used during defence. The defense stance won’t protect you from every attack type.
  6. The tracking system will enable you to switch between the limbs of the opponent (if he is a humanoid). However, it doesn’t matter too much if the opponent is fully armored. But when a limb isn’t armored (blue color), you will deal double the damage.
  7. Using a single type of weapon (like single handed ones) will impact your familiarity with it, which can increase the speed of attacks and the number of damage you deal. The bar that represents this parameter is shown in the bottom left corner of the screen.
  8. The fights with bosses or mini bosses differ from regular fights. During them you must guess what the best way of fighting the opponent is or where you should attack him. Frequently you must use your surroundings or try to defeat the enemy with his own weapon.

Death

The player doesn’t die permanently. After his health bar drops to zero, he is taken to a MedBay and the scrap he gathered is dropped. In the right corner of the screen, information appears that shows you how much time you have to gather the items.

When you die, all enemies in the area respawn, so if a given stage is too hard for you, fight the local opponents to gain more experience / materials for better equipment.

Executions

In executions you cut down the limbs you targeted - Combat tips for The Surge - Advice - The Surge Game Guide
In executions you cut down the limbs you targeted

By using the E key you can finish the opponent in a spectacular way with a special attack (execution). This attack doesn’t have special requirements, but it cannot be used on all opponents (for example, it doesn’t work on flying robots). The only requirement is for the enemy to have low health (about 10-20% of the health bar). This attack has two purposes: it enables you to use an attack that doesn’t deplete stamina or to obtain resources / schematics. Let’s focus on the latter: by performing execution on a specific limb, you will randomly receive a damaged piece of a part, material of which it is constructed or a diagram if you don’t have it yet. Attacking an armored limb is harder, so you can attack the opponent wherever you want and switch to the selected limb once you can perform the execution.

The character development can be combined with the equipment description as pieces of protagonist’s exoskeleton are the main modifiers of his parameters. However, let’s start from the beginning.

Scrap and core

The required amount of scrap for gaining new levels increases very quickly - Character development in The Surge - Advice - The Surge Game Guide
The required amount of scrap for gaining new levels increases very quickly

The protagonist can use varied equipment. However, to do that, the exoskeleton must have enough core energy which enables it to power all the pieces (otherwise he won’t be able to wear them). By killing the enemies and gathering the random loot (and by destroying equipment you don’t need) you are awarded with scrap. It enables you to upgrade your core in the MedBay. New energy levels don’t provide any special skills, but they allow you to overload some energy lines to open closed paths and to use more implants.

The multiplier of the scrap you receive is increasing when you dont die - Character development in The Surge - Advice - The Surge Game Guide
The multiplier of the scrap you receive is increasing when you don’t die

Scrap is also used to create and upgrade equipment. Because of that, it is important to wisely and skillfully distribute your resources. Notice that when you fight and defeat new opponents, the reward multiplier increases. It resets when you return to MedBay and when you use some healing methods. It can be also impacted by your implants and weapons. You should find balance between your equipment and the multiplier.

Sometimes you can also find consumables. They can provide you with various amounts of scrap. You can’t do anything else with them – they are simply bonuses to consume. It is best to use them near a MedBay so that you won’t lose the bonus scrap when something goes wrong.

Implants

Implants (passive or active ones) enable you to use new skills - Character development in The Surge - Advice - The Surge Game Guide
Implants (passive or active ones) enable you to use new skills

Implants are the main thing that enable you to use new skills (mostly healing) and to use energy – the blue bar that increases during the fight (you can for example trade it for health with an implant). Some implants work passively. In addition to that, there are implants with much different effects, like showing the health bar above the enemy. You can find them like other items, usually in random places.

You can install them in free slots or uninstall them with MedBays. New slots are unlocked by developing the core of the exoskeleton. Each slot has the required level described on it.

This chapter describes the first level of the game. The chapter contains information about enemies, basic gameplay mechanics, advice and information about audio logs. It also contains description of the boss fight and location of secret weapons.

  • First steps
  • Repair the energy core
  • Reach the factory
  • Optional battle with a mini boss
  • Reach the power station
  • Boss fight
  • Titan weapon
  • Volatile Spectre weapon

First steps

The first robots on your path are damaged. You can destroy them with a single hit - Abandoned Production | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide
The first robots on your path are damaged. You can destroy them with a single hit

You start the game among ruins, with a makeshift weapon in your hand. Go through the robots by attacking them with one of two attack buttons (LMB or RMB). By performing the attacks in various order you can create simple combos, but it isn’t noticeable while you don’t have equipment or a combat style. Use Q key to defend yourself.

Each action depletes stamina, both attack and defense. Because of that, you should early learn to perform dodge by using the direction key and jump. The stamina regenerates automatically, but when attacking stronger enemies (or a few opponents at once) you must take it into account so that you won’t be idle on the battlefield.

Scrap takes the form of blue-glowing pyramids - Abandoned Production | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide
Scrap takes the form of blue-glowing pyramids

Collect the yellow pyramids on your way. These are objects scattered across the world and dropped by enemies. They contain materials, items or blueprints – traditional, random loot. You don’t need to focus on gathering them all, you will rarely find something useful.

Reach the station. Before entering, collect the scrap at the entrance - its an implant - Abandoned Production | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide
Reach the station. Before entering, collect the scrap at the entrance – it’s an implant

Reach the destroyed ship in which you will find a terminal. During the short dialog you will obtain some information about the world and you will unlock access to the MedBay. This will serve as your base of operations: come here whenever you want to upgrade your character, save the scrap you gathered or heal yourself. If you die, you are taken here as well.

Before the entrance to the building there is an implant – Medical Audit. Install it in the free slot of your character in the Implant tab in the MedBay. This will enable you to see health bars above the enemies.

Repair the energy core

At the start of your road you will face a simple opponent and you will receive tutorial advice - Abandoned Production | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide
At the start of your road you will face a simple opponent and you will receive tutorial advice

At first you won’t be able to take full advantage of MedBay’s features. You will be only able to manage implants. Your core is damaged and you must find something that will enable you to fix it. Leave the ship through the newly opened door and go downstairs. Then turn left. You will encounter your first enemy. Notice that his head is unprotected – use auto aiming and select the head by switching between limbs. Now your character will aim each attack at the head. Since it is an unprotected part, the damage will be maximized.

Walk towards the gate and kill the enemy - Abandoned Production | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide
Walk towards the gate and kill the enemy

Keep going and defeat two more enemies. Your target is the last opponent, who is trying to get through the closed gate. He has better weapon than the rest. Once you defeat him, he will drop an item. Take it to the MedBay to repair your exoskeleton.

From now on you can perform upgrades, create items from blueprints and upgrade the core that represents character’s points. Detailed information can be found in the Advice chapter. After taking the “coupon” from the panel you will receive a mechanized leg and hand. Open the inventory and put them on. These are parts of your exoskeleton that improve your parameters. For now don’t try to gather materials for new pieces at all cost – you will find many of them when you defeat enemies.

Reach the factory

Go back near the gate with the fixed core and create a short circuit to open the gate - Abandoned Production | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide
Go back near the gate with the fixed core and create a short circuit to open the gate

In order to continue, you must reach the factory. You have probably seen many closed doors in the current area – you will have to open them from inside, they will serve you as shortcuts. Currently the only path is leading through the door where you killed the enemy with the item to fix your core.

There is a circuit next to the gate. Above it there is a number that represents the core level that you must have to use it. Here the default one is required – 10 pts. Walk towards it and press the action button. The door will open.

Now you must get through the building by eliminating the opponents. You should keep returning here to gather scrap and more materials (and blueprints) to upgrade the basic equipment. At the back you will find door that must be also overcharged with the core (10 pts). You will walk outside. Open the door on the right and you will unlock the fastest shortcut to your base. Watch out for the poisonous gases around you – by standing in them you lose health.

Optional battle with a mini boss

Outside the factory, in front of the wide door (the shortcut to the base), there is a small path among the bushes - Abandoned Production | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Outside the factory, in front of the wide door (the shortcut to the base), there is a small path among the bushes. Walk through it and you will encounter a mini boss – a large mining robot that isn’t aggressive. Watch out as he can take you down with a single hit. He attacks with his arm, when you’re standing a few meters from him. He raises and drops down crushing you when you’re close.

In order to defeat him you must attack the batteries on his sides - Abandoned Production | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

In order to defeat him you must attack the batteries on his sides. Don’t use combos but single attacks, so that you can jump away when needed. For winning you will receive Shining Coin [story item] and some scrap.

Reach the power station

Entrance to the power station - Abandoned Production | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide
Entrance to the power station

When going outside from the base, use the shortcut to get behind the factory. Then go to the left and upstairs. The second stairs will lead you behind the building. There you can see door to the power station. You can get there through the factory as well, but this path is more comfortable (you don’t need to walk in the dark).

Important – its dark inside. You should equip any upper armor that has a flashlight in its equipment. Sadly, the blueprints and materials must be obtained from random opponents, so you might not get this early in the game.

Once in the building, go downstairs and then to the right through the door - Abandoned Production | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Once in the building, go downstairs and then to the right through the door. There is a switch down there (10 pts) that will turn the power station and lights on.

Now you can go behind the door to the stairs on the opposite wall or you can go back up, where you will face a boss. You should prepare for this battle, so first go to the MedBay.

Boss fight

Sleeping boss - despite the fact that he is standing there all the time, he wont attack you until you activate the power station - Abandoned Production | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide
Sleeping boss – despite the fact that he is standing there all the time, he won’t attack you until you activate the power station

When you enter the field in front of the power plant – it doesn’t matter from which side – you will start your first serious boss fight. The arena is closed and you can’t leave it until you win / die. There is only one simple principle in this fight – try to remain behind the enemy. Attack his legs until the orange bar is filled. Try to avoid performing too complicated combos because the robot can stomp and deal serious damage to you.

When the robot falls, hit him from the front or the back of his core - Abandoned Production | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide
When the robot falls, hit him from the front or the back of his core

Once the bar is filled, the robot will probably jump back – you must quickly get behind him. In that case he will shoot homing missiles that will hit him. The boss will fall for a moment and his main component will be vulnerable – try to deal as much damage to it as possible. After about 3 such actions you will win the fight.

You should visit the MedBay before the fight. Healing implants, light equipment and a fast weapon will be useful as well. Agility is the most important in this fight.

Titan weapon

The Titan hammer - Abandoned Production | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide
The Titan hammer

After activating the power plant you can find a rare weapon in the underground corridor – a big hammer called Titan. In the basement, near the stairs that leads to the lower floor (filled with poison gas, closer to the factory entrance) there is a small room. From inside you will hear a voice calling for help. It is closed until you activate the power station. Once the power is back up, you can open the door. Once you do it, you will be attacked by an enemy with the hammer. It is important to kill him by performing an execution on his right hand.

The Titan is a two-handed weapon that deals great damage but is very slow. It isn’t practical when fighting strong enemies, but its great range makes it good to face groups of weaker enemies.

Volatile Spectre weapon

You will find another weapon among the poisonous gas - Abandoned Production | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide
You will find another weapon among the poisonous gas

This piece of equipment can be found near the above described Titan. It is the best weapon available at this point of the game: it deals the greatest damage and is quite fast. You will find it in the basement, on the bottom floor, near the entrance to the factory, in the room filled with poison gas. After entering the gas turn left, then right – the weapon is inside a yellow pyramid to collect. It might be hard to get there – especially since there are three drones below as well. You should prepare for this trip with implants that improve healing, maximum health number and light armor that allows you to sprint. Optionally you might not worry about dying – you won’t lose equipment and you can leave the scrap in the Bay. Try to bring the weapon closer to the entrance with each attempt.

The following chapter provides a description of all the activities that you should perform during the second level of the game, and follow the storyline of The Surge. You will find information on enemies and NPCs that you will come across, shortcuts and how to reach the boss and exit the location.

  • Find and repair the MedBay
  • Save the employees
  • Unlock the first shortcut
  • Reach the Recycling Zone
  • Recycling Zone and more shortcuts
  • Elevator and boss fight

Find and repair the MedBay

You will begin at a station - Central Production B | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

You will begin at a station. Stick to the left side to reach the other part of the location. On the right side, you will find the console presented in the screenshot. Interact with it and a companion drone will appear. You can use it from now on.

Approach it and interact with it to begin a conversation. Reach the elevator and use the drone to enter it.

Move right and you will come across a damaged drone. You will have to destroy it with a range attack of your own companion drone. Move forward and you will see the MedBay soon enough.

Restore your supplies if needed and exit the station - Central Production B | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Restore your supplies if needed and exit the station. On your left, there is a door that you can open by interaction. Right behind them, on the left, there is a circuit that you will have to overcharge. This shouldn’t be much of a problem, as it only requires level 10 of Core Power. Just keep in mind that there is an enemy behind the pillar, on the right. Eliminate him and overcharge the circuit. The MedBay will become functional again.

Save the employees

Get back to the station - Central Production B | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Get back to the station. Check your message and speak with Sally. Get back to the place where you caused the overcharge previously. Defeat the opponent you came across earlier, and move forward. You will reach the place visible in the picture. The Exo-Lift [1] on the left won’t work, and right behind a narrow passage in front of you [2], there are two Creo security guards, who would eliminate you immediately. Go right [3]. There, you will face a single heavy-armored opponent. Defeat him and use the stairs to go down.

Right now, you should focus on the enemy in front of you [1] - Central Production B | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Right now, you should focus on the enemy in front of you [1]. Lure him with your drone. On your right and left, you can encounter faster enemies with less armor, and there is no point fighting all of them at the same time. Defeat your opponent and turn left [2]. One of the mentioned opponents can actually attack you. Just block the incoming attacks, and strike back immediately. It’s the fastest way to eliminate your opponents and save your health. On your left, you will find an item, located behind the containers. You won’t do anything with the very containers, as they require 75 level of Core Power. If you turn slightly left [3], you could use the Exo-Lift to reach one of the hardest areas, full of war machines. You won’t be able to defeat them at this stage of the game.

Turn right - Central Production B | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Turn right. The other fast enemy will attack you. He may not spot you immediately, as he moves a lot around the area. Defeat him and you will end up in a place presented in the screenshot. Go left [1]. Defeat an enemy behind the container, perform another overcharge (13 level of Core Power) and open the door. Speak with Davey until you run out of dialogue options. Use the right corridor [2] and eliminate the enemy presented in the picture. Get back to the broken Exo-Lift and the passage full of Creo Security Guards.

Destroy the obstacle and jump on the lower platform - Central Production B | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Destroy the obstacle and jump on the lower platform. You will find Hobbes. Overcharge his Rig, speak with him and collect all the nearby items and messages. Get back to the MedBay to regenerate. Both saved employees will be there from now on.

Unlock the first shortcut

Head for location where you found Hobbes - Central Production B | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Head for location where you found Hobbes. Jump down, eliminate the enemy and turn right. A fast opponent, located behind the container, will attack you. Block some strikes to finish him off, collect the items and move forward. An enemy with a cannon will soon be in front of you. Hide behind the container, on the left, as close to him as possible. Tag him and taunt him to fire at you. After the third shoot, charge and defeat him.

There is another enemy in front of you - Central Production B | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

There is another enemy in front of you. On the other side of the stairs, on the right, a fast opponent will appear. Eliminate all hostile units on the upper floor and turn left. There, you will come across an incomplete fence that you can use to jump down. Move forward slowly. Eliminate the enemy with the cannon and focus your attention on the opponent, located under the platform you are currently standing on. Sometimes, he may run upstairs, which can be dangerous for you.

Before you move forward, you should unlock the first shortcut to the MedBay - Central Production B | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Before you move forward, you should unlock the first shortcut to the MedBay. Walk across the pipes presented in the screenshot [1]. When you reach the end, a fast enemy will appear. Defend yourself and take the door [2], he just used to enter the room. Use the Exo-Lift, and when you reach the top, interact with the first door and break the lattice with your weapon to unlock the passage. You are close to the MedBay. Before you actually get back there, you should go down, eliminate the noisy opponent and collect the nearby item.

Reach the Recycling Zone

Get back to the exit point and turn right [1] - Central Production B | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Get back to the exit point and turn right [1]. Carefully search the half-pipe. There are some enemies but it should be possible to lure them out one by one. Furthermore, there is a module that will allow your companion drone to perform melee attacks.

Take the stairs presented in the screenshot [2]. There is a woman on the mezzanine and you should speak with her. You can offer her a two-handed weapon if you have one. After a longer conversation, walk away and the woman will move to a different position. Keep in mind that the offered weapon should be good, and Staff of Creo Security seems like a perfect choice. She won’t accept a poor quality item and her storyline will not progress. If you take the stairs down, you will reach the train station. Two Creo Security Guards will be there, so stay focused.

You need to reach the Recycling Zone. In order to get there, you will have to cross the bridge on the left. It’s full of enemies and some powerful robots. You can also enter the room in front of you. Just ignore the machine and run up the stairs. Use the Exo-Lift at the top, to reach the upper level. You can explore it freely but the most important thing is the lattice in one of the passages. Destroy it to get to the Recycling Zone through the back entrance.

Recycling Zone and more shortcuts

Take the stairs down, jump down and take out the enemies - Central Production B | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Take the stairs down, jump down and take out the enemies. Head to the place where machines are working. There is no point in going down, as all the bridges are closed and you won’t pass them. Instead, check the spot presented in the screenshot. There is an elevator that will take you to the upper level.

Defeat the enemy and use one of the rails to reach the other part of the level - Central Production B | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Defeat the enemy and use one of the rails to reach the other part of the level. Turn right. There, you will find two passages. Unlock the one on the left [1] to unlock another shortcut. Now, after you respawn, all you need to do is defeat the first opponent and turn left. Move forward and you will get back to this place.

Unlock the shortcut and proceed. Unlock the passage on your right [2]. Eliminate two enemies that will block your way, and interact with a terminal by the window. This will activate the bridges and assign machines to additional tasks. Restore your medical supplies with the terminal on the right, and use the elevator. Exit the elevator, turn right and go straight.

You will come across another opponent that will attack you from a distance - Central Production B | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

You will come across another opponent that will attack you from a distance. There is also a technical machine in the room, so be careful when attacking your enemy. Kill or avoid the machine, and go upstairs. There you will unlock another shortcut that will take you to your current position.

Elevator and boss fight

Leave the stairs and move forward - Central Production B | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Leave the stairs and move forward. On your right, there is an enemy behind the open door [1]. On your left, there is a path [2] that you can use to continue you journey. By the entrance, on the left, there is a special weapon [3].

Go down and you will reach the place presented in the screenshot - Central Production B | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Go down and you will reach the place presented in the screenshot. There are three enemies here. You can lure the first one to a specific position [1] when patrolling the area. The second one is waiting behind the presented container [2], and the last one is by the terminal [3]. Defeat them, look around, and overcharge the console to open the door.

Here, you will come across an area full of toxic waste - Central Production B | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Here, you will come across an area full of toxic waste. If you stand on piles of toxic waste, your hero will lose some health. Lure your enemies and reach the other part of the area. Take the stairs and defeat opponents that will block your way. This path will lead you directly to a shortcut to the MedBay. It will be extremely useful before you challenge the boss.

Defeat the enemies, go down and turn left. On the left, there is an elevator, and a circuit that can be overcharged. The elevator will take you next to the circuit you overcharged at the beginning of this stage (in order to activate the MedBay).

Unlock the shortcut, go down and turn left - Central Production B | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Unlock the shortcut, go down and turn left. Avoid or defeat your enemies, and head to the corridor on your left. Enter the large arena to begin the boss fight.

Tips concerning the boss fight can be found in the specific chapter of the game guide.

Defeat the boss and reach the Exo-Lift by the arena - Central Production B | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Defeat the boss and reach the Exo-Lift by the arena. Go left and use another crane. You will end up in a technical room. Collect the items and go to the Exo-Lift on the other side. Go down and proceed to the train station by going right [1]. The large door [2] in front of you, is not available at the moment.

Enter the station and head for the train. You will reach your next location.

The following chapter provides a description of all the activities that you should perform during the second level of the game, and follow the storyline of The Surge. You will find information on enemies and NPCs that you will come across, shortcuts and how to reach the boss and exit the location.

  • Reach the courtyard
  • Dr Melissa Chavez and another shortcut
  • Labs

Reach the courtyard

As soon as the stage starts, go to the Medical Station, located on the left side of the starting point. The information network does not work but all the other functions should be working properly.

Exit the station, head left and move along the only available path. Go down the stairs and you will face two machines. The key to success is to destroy the limbs attacked their bodies. Once this is done, they won’t be much of a threat. However, they can still incapacitate you and slowly drain your life energy. Use their limited range of vision and attack them from behind. This way you will initiate the fight. This will improve your chance to survive.

When you reach the spot presented in the screenshot [1], another machine, hiding behind the crates, will stand in your way - Resolve BioLab | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

When you reach the spot presented in the screenshot [1], another machine, hiding behind the crates, will stand in your way. Duck, lock the camera on its arm and finish the robot off. There is a circuit, not far from the place where you were attacked [2]. You can overcharge it. Do it, go back and go down the stairs. There is another implant behind the door.

Get back to the location presented in the previous screenshot, pass the circuit and go up. Kill the enemies and search the floor. The elevator won’t work but there is a circuit right behind it. Overcharge the circuit to run the elevator again. The door at the bottom is closed, and at this point you won’t be able to open it. Don’t worry, you will get back here by the end of this stage.

Use the elevator to reach the top floor - Resolve BioLab | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Use the elevator to reach the top floor. Eliminate a fast enemy and destroy drones located behind wooden crates. Restore your supplies and move on. At first humanoids will attack you but soon the only remaining opponents will be combat robots. Lure them out one by one, and try to make them follow you to the staircase – this will limit their movement. The machines can regroup quickly, so try to eliminate the first one before the rest will find you.

Dr Melissa Chavez and another shortcut

Starting from the position presented in the picture [1], go right and collect the weapon - Resolve BioLab | Walkthrough - Walkthrough - The Surge Game Guide

Starting from the position presented in the picture [1], go right and collect the weapon. Ignore the door [2], as it’s not available. There is a mini boss on the right. Go straight, avoid toxic waste and reach the door visible in the picture [3]. There is a terminal next to it. Use it to proceed with your task.

  • How to prepare
  • The battle
  • Reward

How to prepare

Try to collect some important combat parts for your Rig. Although it is not obligatory, additional defense can save your life if you are not careful enough. One should reach level 15 of the core. This will allow you to use additional implants during the battle.

Select implants that will allow you to regenerate your health or deal slightly more damage. A modification that restores your health in a specific moment is a good choice, as the boss does not attack too often.

Adjust your weapon to your gameplay. There will be a lot of opportunities to deliver single blows, thus we recommend to select weapons that deal greater damage, and throw 1-2 hits before moving into defense.

The battle

It’s not just about the speed but also being accurate. The boss will signal all his attacks, so if you are careful enough and change your position, you should be able to win.

There is just one stage of the fight. Hit the robot’s legs to charge the orange bar. When this happens, P.A.X will move away from us to prepare his missile attack. You should follow P.A.X immediately and not allow the robot to get too far. By the time he launches his missiles, you should be next to him. This way, you will avoid taking damage (most of the time the explosion will toss you away) and P.A.X will hurt itself. When that happens, the machine will switch into emergency mode for about 7 seconds.

This is the moment when you should damage its torso as much as possible. The first blows will remove the armor, thus the damage will be reduced. However, further attacks should significantly affect P.A.X health.

P.A.X will reset the orange bar and get up. You need to repeat the entire sequence until you defeat the machine. Your opponent will use the following set of moves:

Stomp – if you remain too long in one position, P.A.X will try to trample you. It may be a single movement or a combo of three strikes;

Sword attack – the left hand will perform two strikes. You need to move back the whole time, as every attack will have a greater range;

Thrust – The right hand will lower down and moments later P.A.X will perform a forward attack. Sometimes, it will combine the strike with a jump if you are out of its reach;

Missile strike – this attack will take place after P.A.X charges the orange bar. Three waves of missiles that will be launched in different directions, which makes it harder to avoid them. This causes significant damage, so avoid this attack at any cost.

Reward

Once you defeat the boss, you will receive:

2.000 tech scrap;

weapon – P.A.X Imperator;

Implant – Vital Boost v.3.

Defeat P.A.X and you will be able to use the train and move to another location – Central Production B.

  • How to prepare
  • Fight – Stage 1
  • Fight – Stage 2
  • Reward

How to prepare

Just like in the case of your previous fight, you will need to learn certain moves and react as soon as possible. Energy management will be crucial for this fight (especially during stage 2), so if you have any implants that would boost its regeneration, it’s the perfect moment to use them. Although it is not obligatory, it’s going to make it easier to hit your opponent. Especially when the robot will make you duck all the time.

This time it’s quantity over quality, so you may want to select a weapon that deals less damage but will allow you to perform more strikes. It’s wise to select a strong staff, and thus increase your attack range.

Fight – Stage 1

The machine will try hit you with one of two possible moves:

Limb attack – when near you, the robot will pull out one of its limbs to hit you.

Pirouette – when in close combat, the machine will move up a little bit and perform a fast spin to hit you with its limbs.

Lock the camera on one of the limbs. During the fight, the camera may confuse the player, as often your hero will try to hit the limb you locked the camera on, instead of the closest target. As the robot will move, you will have to keep switching the target and lock your camera on the closest limbs.

Try to hit the same limb. After a couple accurate blows, the robot will duck for a moment – this will give you enough time to strike with a more powerful attack. If you are lucky enough, you will be able to rip off one of the limbs. The robot will launch into the air and try to smash you with its heavy body. This move will take place each time it loses one of its limbs but it may also appear during the fight.

At this stage of the fight, the robot can also use one of these moves:

Squash – if you place yourself under the machine, it will lock its limbs and lower its torso to squash you. This means instant death or at least taking the majority of your health.

A single shoot – after charging its attack for a moment, the robot will fire a single missile in your direction. It’s easy to predict and avoid the attack but keep in mind that the robot will not always fire at you, so be careful when dodging.

The second stage of the fight will begin when the robot loses three out of six limbs.

Fight – Stage 2

The machine will change its attacks:

Arm attack – if you get close enough, the machine will move one of its arms and spin in a horizontal way. If you don’t move away and take all of the hits, you will lose at least half of your health bar.

Charge – an easy to predict but also the most dangerous attack. The robot will lift its turret beyond its torso, turn and rapidly strike you. If you block this attack, you will probably survive but you will be in big trouble. No block means instant death, regardless of your current health.

Incineration – if you perform too many frontal attacks (torso), the robot will turn its nozzles and incinerate the area in front of itself. It’s easy to avoid this attack, and it will give you enough time to regenerate and move to a better position.

Squash – if you remain too long under the torso, the robot will lower it immediately and squash you. The attack is not as powerful as during the first stage but it’s better to avoid it.

Spinning wheel – the robot will spin for a long time and try to get close to you. Do whatever you can to avoid this attack, as it is long enough to kill you. Just duck in the same direction and you should survive.

Your task is to move around the central part of the arena, in a way that will always allow you to perform a duck or two. Taunt the robot to perform spinning wheels. After each move you will have more time to perform your own strikes. At this point, it’s better to use more powerful weapons. You won’t have much time to perform combos, so all you can do is strike with single but more powerful blows.

The second stage of the fight is longer, as it’s much harder to make the robot repeat the same moves. Furthermore, it likes to use the charge, so you need to be very careful. Try to hit the torso, especially the turret.

Reward

The following chapter describes a showdown with one of the bosses in The Surge - Big Sister 1/3 Boss in The Surge - Bosses - The Surge Game Guide

The following chapter describes a showdown with one of the bosses in The Surge. This time, you will be facing Big Sister 1/3 that you need to defeat to reach another part of the Creo facility.

  • Fight – stage 1
  • Fight – stage 2
  • Fight – Stage 3
  • Reward

Fight – stage 1

The first part of the battle should be rather easy. Your task is to destroy both arms that will attack you. The key to success is to observe both arms and remember that the machine will not always attack in turns. After a series of strikes, the arm will pull back and the other will try to hit you.

In the meantime, the main element of the machine will perform a vertical laser attack every 10 seconds. The robot will try to catch you with the beam all the time, so you should finish the first stage of the fight as soon as possible.

Arm attacks:

Push – an arm from a horizontal position will charge your way. Duck in any direction and place yourself close to the middle of the platform to have enough space to dodge incoming attacks.

Displacement – an arm in a vertical position will perform three moves from left to right in order to hit you. If you stand by the back fence, the arm will not reach you. However, it’s not likely that you will be able to deal damage as well.

Squash – up to three blows to the platform with an arm in a horizontal position. If the machine lifts its arm, it will strike you from above. You need to duck as all the strikes will land in the spot you occupy.

Attacking the same arm repeatedly will let you destroy it. Once this happens the machine will attack you with the only remaining arm.

Reduce the durability bar of both arms to zero, and stage two of the fight will begin.

Fight – stage 2

During the second stage of the fight, you will have to destroy four arms that will constantly drain your health points. Keep in mind that a destroyed arm will be replaced with another one, and once you enter the platform, you won’t be able to leave it. Stick to its corners and avoid the center. This way, you should be able to destroy the arms one by one, and you will reduce the possibility of being attacked by other arms.

You will have to avoid the vertical laser attack through the entire stage, and overload on the floor that will slowly but constantly drain your health points.

You need to destroy at least 3 arms to begin the next stage. However, it’s best to destroy all of them – this way, you will have more space to dodge hostile strikes in the next stage.

Fight – Stage 3

The last phase of the fight is all about the main structure of the robot. Laser attacks won’t happen so often but the beam will strike every time you try to move out of direct range of the attacks. Your biggest opponent will be the very camera, so keep in mind that after locking the camera once, you shouldn’t switch it off till the end of the fight. Otherwise, the camera will move behind your hero, making you defenseless.

At first you can focus on the lower part of the machine but as soon as you notice broken cables, tis part of its body will become immune to further attacks. The robot will take its time to perform attacks, so that gives you enough time to strike and move to a safe distance.

Dodging the incoming blows is mandatory, as even a single strike can kill you if you get hit directly. On both sides of the platform, there are spots without any fence, and if you get hit, you may be pushed off the arena – this will kill you instantly.

As soon as you defeat the boss, get as close to the robot as possible. This way, you won’t fall off the platform that will spread apart after the fight.

Reward

Defeat the boss and you will receive:

  1. 10.000 tech scrap;
  2. Weapon – Spitfire Rod.

The below chapter discusses the battle with one of the bosses in The Surge Black Cerberus - Black Cerberus | Boss in The Surge - Bosses - The Surge Game Guide

The below chapter discusses the battle with one of the bosses in The Surge Black Cerberus. If you want to get to the specific rooms of CREO Management Sector, you will have to defeat the boss first.

Note: There is an alternative way (shown below) of dealing with Black Cerberus that will award you with a full Black Cerberus gear.

  • General information
  • Before the battle
  • Black Cerberus
  • P.A.X
  • Rewards
  • Lure P.A.X to destroy the servers – A complete Black Cerberus Gear

General information

Black Cerberus is a human opponent who has stronger attacks, is more resistant to damage and has much more health points than regular opponents. You can perform an execution on him, if you have beaten him up enough. He is fast and his attacks deal a lot of damage. After he has sustained enough damage, Black Cerberus performs an AoD paralyzing attack and escapes into safety.

At this point, the P.A.X. will be your opponent. While you will be fighting with the scorpion robot, Black Cerberus will be replenishing his health points. The longer you will be fighting the robot, the more health your main opponent will regenerate. It should be noted that in this case, P.A.X makes a much stronger opponent than the first boss in the game.

The fight will be over after you have killed Black Cerberus. If you aren’t fast and effective enough, you may have to fight P.A.X robots for five times, before you finally defeat the CREO security chief. Below, you can view tips concerning battles with opponents.

Before the battle

Depending on your skills, your character level and your gear, the fight may be long or short. The key here are large amounts of health shots and of ones that allow you to regain health using power. Apart from that, it is necessary that you accessorize with implants that will allow you to deal more damage. This is the key.

Black Cerberus

The majority of his attacks are limited to ones typical for human opponents using staff. Avoid vertical attacks. You can jump over the horizontal ones, or dodge from them. You may have the most problems with three types of attacks:

Missiles– at a longer distance, Cerberus launches two missiles in your direction. They aren’t accurate, so two dodges are enough. Still, they are so small that you may miss them, if you do not watch the battlefield carefully.

Wave– Cerberus sends out a wave of energy in your direction, which paralyzes you for 2 seconds and deals damage. The attack is especially dangerous if you are staying close to the opponent. If you are staying further away, you can take a hit from missiles, while paralyzed.

Paralysis – after he has taken enough damage, the boss starts to charge his special attack. Try to remain as close as possible to him, then, and land as many attacks as you can. The attack is not dangerous and Cerberus will not attack you while you are paralyzed, even if you are right next to him.

P.A.X

The suit of his attacks is the same as in the case of the scorpion robot in the first location. In this case, you have to deal much more damage to immobilize it and this does not mean filling the orange bar.

The key issue while fighting P.A.X is stripping its legs of the armor. After you manage to do that, you will have to make it stomp its foot. If you hit the leg that the scorpion robot is standing on, while the other is aloof, it will collapse. This way, you can finish the battle in two short attacks, although stripping the armor might take some time, so do not hope for Cerberus to have as many health points after it is back, as previously.

Rewards

After you have defeated the boss, you will receive the following rewards:

  1. 15.000 scrap;
  2. Weapon – MG Judge.

After you have defeated the boss, you gain access to security rooms and obtain CREO Exo-Rig.

Lure P.A.X to destroy the servers – A complete Black Cerberus Gear

There is a special way of defeating the boss that requires a bit more skill and involves destroying two servers by luring P.A.X., who appears after your first contact with Black Cerberus. The square arena contains two white objects which are your target. You need to lure P.A.X. to destroy them using his rockets.

Wait until P.A.X. leaves the garage and engage him. Continue attacking the opponent until you’ve managed to charge the orange bar below the boss’ health bar. The charged bar means that your enemy will begin to use special attacks, including a rocket barrage. The first server can be found left from the window that enables you to see the Black Cerberus, while the second one is right next to the exo-lift you’ve used to enter the arena. Lure P.A.X. to the opposite wall and assume position right next to one of the servers. The boss should fire his rockets – dodge them in the last moment, and the barrage should destroy the server. Repeat the steps above to destroy the second object.

If the both servers are destroyed, take care of P.A.X leg gear (if you’ve haven’t done that yet) and wait for his stomping attack to undercut him. Your move has rendered Black Cerberus unable to summon other units.

Time to face the main boss – take care of him in any way you please.

This approach offers the following loot:

  1. 15.000 Tech Scrap;
  2. A weapon – MG Judge v2;
  3. A complete set of Black Cerberus gear.

The following chapter contains useful information about the enemies in The Surge. Here you can find all of the types of foes that you will face in the game, their weaknesses, as well as the benefits of defeating them.

  • General information
  • Bosses
  • Humans
  • Machines

General information

During the game you will come across countless enemies who are the main “inhabitants” of the levels you will be exploring. Those enemies will be placed at strategic points of the map so that they are the greatest obstacle and threat to the player. They will often attack you in groups, forcing you to change your tactics – they might make surprise attacks, jumping at you from unexpected places.

The enemies respawn each time you heal yourself at a MedBay. They will be patrolling the same areas of a specific location. However, as you progress with the main storyline, new and often more powerful enemies might appear in the area. By installing and using the Medical Audit implant you will be able to see their health bars – a feat impossible without the said implant.

Bosses

In crucial moments you will be facing more powerful enemies, equipped with unique special abilities and significantly stronger than the main protagonist. Knowledge and proper understanding of animations and even sounds of specific attacks is fundamental if one wants to survive an encounter with a boss. Defeating those foes will require the player to find and exploit all of their weaknesses.

The guide contains separate chapters about every boss you will encounter in the game. Inside you will find hints that will allow you to keep your character alive for as long as possible, as well as information crucial in defeating those powerful foes.

Victory in those boss encounters is amply rewarded. In The Surge you will receive a special weapon associated with the defeated foe, as well as a large amount of scrap that can be used to upgrade your equipment or further develop your character.

Humans

During the game you will encounter two types of human enemies.

The first ones were corrupted by unknown means and will be aggressive towards you. However, they are fairly incompetent in combat and in most cases won’t react to your actions. It’s easy to approach them from behind and perform a critical attack. What is more, they won’t dodge your attacks and they are using repetitive attack patterns. Depending on the location they will be equipped with medium-quality gear, although it will be improve with your progress in the main storyline.

The second group of human enemies are the CREO security employees. They are fully aware, organized and extremely dangerous, especially during the early parts of the game. They will remain passive unless provoked by the player. In combat you must rely on your dodges, as the enemies are proficient in using their staves and taking their strikes head-on will quickly result in the death of the protagonist. When initiating combat, they will sometimes use a paralyzing shot from the turret mounted on their left shoulder. If you fail to dodge it, you will be in serious trouble.

Machines

Theres only a handful of mechanized enemies in the game that arent bosses - Enemies in The Surge - Game World - The Surge Game Guide

There’s only a handful of mechanized enemies in the game that aren’t bosses. Depending on the type of the machine, those foes might have better or worse vision range and different attacks. Most of the machines will only leave scrap once you defeat them. However, if you manage to detach specific limbs off their body, you might receive additional implants.

The chapter will soon be updated.

The following chapter contains useful information about the enemies in The Surge. Here you can find all of the types of foes that you will face in the game, their weaknesses, as well as the benefits of defeating them.

The following chapter contains hints about NPCs that you will meet during your journey in The Surge. The information you can find here will help you complete all of the quests associated with those characters. This in turn will allow you to acquire additional rewards and achievements / trophies.

  • Dean Hobbs
  • Davey
  • Dr. Melissa Chavez
  • Irina Beckett

Dean Hobbs

You will meet him for the first time in Central Production B - Material Depot - NPC in The Surge - Game World - The Surge Game Guide

You will meet him for the first time in Central Production B – Material Depot. Leave the Medbay, stick to the left side, jump down to the platform located below and you will notice an immobilized man. You can overload the circuit in his exoskeleton. Doing so will free the man. Initiate a conversation, exhaust all of the dialogue options and leave. If you die or leave the location, you will find him again in the Medbay.

View more  Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War III Game Guide

Speak with him again in the Medbay and you will be given some materials, allowing you to upgrade your current equipment. If you won’t interact with any other character, Hobbs will remain in this location till the end of the game.

If you advance with Jo’s story and meet doctor Gene Berrett, you will find Hobbs body in the Medbay once you return to the location. Additionally, if you’ve given Jo a two-handed weapon – Equalizer – you will find it at Hobbs’ corpse.

Davey

You can find him behind the only locked doors in Central Production B – Material Depot. Initiate a conversation and exhaust all of the available dialogue options. You will meet him again in the Medbay.

Speak with the man in the Medbay and he will ask you to find a healing implant. According to the information he provided, the implant is located in Central Production B. However, you will find it in the Resolve Biolabs. If you give him Modaxinal Injector he will give you Vital Injection v.3 in return. Giving him the implant will turn Davey insane.

If you won’t deliver the implant to Davey, he will disappear from the Medbay once the Research Zone chapter is complete.

Dr. Melissa Chavez

You will meet her in Resolve Biolabs and the whole sequence is about reaching her office. You will stumble upon two enemies outside of her office. Defeat them and Chavez will open the door. Initiate a conversation with the woman and take the BOTECS Power Core from her office.

She will later appear in Medbay. You can initiate a conversation with her there, bur doing so will cause her to disappear from the location once you visit it again – she won’t be in her office either.

You can mention Chavez in conversations with other characters, but it won’t advance her storyline any further.

Irina Beckett

You will meet her for the first time on the floor near the train station located in the central part of Central Production B. During the first conversation she will ask you about a staff. To push her story forward, you have to give her the CREO security weapon – MG Negotiator – you’ve acquired earlier. She will also mention Smelting Machines and (requires confirmation) she will defeat one in Recycling, provided that she reaches the place before you.

Another encounter will take place in the upper levels of the Circulation Tower – there you can exhaust every dialogue option, but it won’t have any impact on the story.

Once you’re done in Research & Development, you will meet her in the Medbay, near the elevator leading to the arena where you fight against Firebug. She will mention her affiliation with CREO and will ask about MG Gorgon set that belongs to the security staff. The location is rather dark, which is why you might have some problems pinpointing all of the components, but once you have them a dialogue option will appear.

If you hand over the elements of the set, you will meet her in the Executive Levels. She won’t be willing to let you continue and she will threaten to attack. If you defeat her and chop off the arm holding a weapon, you will acquire the Peacekeeper.

The chapter will soon be updated.

The below chapter provides information, tips and discusses types of weaponry available in The Surge. In here, you will learn which situations match with which weapons and what individual statistics of gear refer to.

  • Statistics
  • One-Handed Weapons
  • Single-Rigged Weapons
  • Staff Weapons
  • Heavy-Duty
  • Twin-Rigged Weapons

Statistics

Weapon selection is limited to two factors - your playing style and which weapon type goes best with it - Weapons in The Surge - Equipment - The Surge Game Guide

Weapon selection is limited to two factors – your playing style and which weapon type goes best with it. At the beginning of the game, it is a good idea to test every available weapon class and pick what suits you most. Apart from range, there are five properties that describe a weapon, which should be treated as the final factor in weapon selection. Remember that, during the game, you will be finding implants that boost individual parameters of your weapon.

Base Damage

This is the basic statistic that tells you how many health points the opponent loses after taking a hit into an unarmored body part, or weak spot in the case of machines. This value is decreased by armors and their specific properties, as well as shields generated by the drone. I general, the higher the damage factor, the more efficient the weapon is in a variety of situations. Still, you should also take the remaining parameters into account.

Impact

This parameter describes your chances of knocking the opponent out of balance in a single blow. The majority of human opponents (depending on the armors they wear) have different stability parameters. If the weapon’s momentum value is higher than the armor value, the opponent may be knocked down, which will let you deal some more damage. Finally, with a series of blows, you can thwart opponent’s counter attack, or knock him out of pace in situations, in which he wants to strike.

Attack speed

This statistic does not require any explanations. The higher the value, the more blows you can land within a specific time limit.

Proficiency scaling

This parameter describes how fast your character will master the specific type of weapon. Proficiency allows you to deal higher base damage with the weapon type, even if the statistics of that weapon have not changed. For each type of weapon, this statistic is scaled separately. This means that picking a weapon at the beginning of the game is nearly synonymous with the necessity to complete it using that weapon. The higher the value, the faster you will be familiarizing yourself with the weapon and the more effective you will be at wielding it.

Energy Gain

The final value tells you whether or not, you will have to land many strikes with the weapon to charge the energy bar. What makes this important is that the energy accumulated in your exoskeleton is what allows you to perform executions. What is even more, the higher the value of the statistic, the more likely you will be to use implants or drone functions that consume energy.

One-Handed Weapons

The basic and the most versatile weapon type. Don’t expect any serious damage, but the attack speed offers quick hits and a quick recharge of the energy bar. The best weapon for novice players and those who haven’t had any major experience with the genre.

The below chapter discusses how to swap weapons without the necessity to access the inventory screen.

The game does not state it overtly, but, you can swap your weapons without having to access the inventory screen. For each controller, the key that makes it possible is different, which is why you should view the dedicated chapter to learn about that.

You are free to use several types of weapons interchangeably and swap them depending on the situation. What makes this useful is that some of the weapons deal more damage, whereas some are characterized by higher impact, or energy gain. The ability to swap weapons during a single battle can give you the upper hand, if only you focus on what you want to achieve this way.

All in all, the entire process is very simple, but it is not on display, which makes it easy to miss. In the inventory, you have to pick the weapon that you want to use. By default, that weapon will be set as the favorite one. You can move the pointer over any other weapon and press the dedicated button to favorite it. After you access the inventory, there will still be only one weapon specified as “equipped”. By the icon of the weapon that you are not currently using, a start will appear, which means that you will now be able to swap between the current weapon and another favorite weapon.

The game allows you to favorite all types of weapons, but using more than three at a time introduces chaos and may turn out to hinder you.

The following chapter explains how to acquire new equipment blueprints that will allow you to create them at the Medbay. Additionally, you will learn how to acquire the weapons that the enemies you face have at their disposal.

Excluding the items that you will be able to find scattered around the map, most of the pieces of equipment can be acquired only from enemies. This, however, applies only to the human enemies.

  • How to acquire armor blueprints and components to upgrade it?
  • How to acquire weapons?
  • Recharging the energy bar

How to acquire armor blueprints and components to upgrade it?

The principle in both cases is the same. You need to chop off one of the limbs of the enemy, or to be more specific, the one that has the piece of armor you want to use attached to it. Remember that the limb must be armored and you have to hit mainly the limb. Otherwise, you won’t be able to cut it off. Refrain from using special and aerial attacks, as you can miss the target, deal the most damage to another part of the enemy body and causing it to be the one that will be cut off.

Acquiring blueprints and crafting materials works in the same manner. Once you acquire a piece of armor, you will also receive the blueprint for that item. Each subsequent part that you will manage to cut off will only give you more components. Note that you can acquire multiple components from a specific part of the armor. Additionally, it’s worth to collect more than you potentially need. In later parts of the game mk. I components are necessary and you can acquire them only at the beginning of the game, or by backtracking to Abandoned Production.

How to acquire weapons?

Similarly to armors and blueprints, acquisition of weapons works exactly the same – by cutting off the enemy limb that holds the weapon you want to get. The first time you acquire the weapon, it will be added to your inventory and you will be able to use it in combat. Each subsequent acquisition will reward you with Tungsten Alloy. The level (“MK. X”) of the alloy is directly connected to the tier of the weapon you’ve acquired.

Recharging the energy bar

Proper selection of weapon is equally important, especially if you, as a high-leveled character, backtrack to the first location to acquire components. Select a weapon from the same class as you’re normally using, but use an unupgraded version. You need to have low enough damage so that your combo charges the energy bar. Otherwise, the enemy will be killed without the opportunity to use an execution and the only thing that you will acquire will be scrap.

The chapter will soon be updated.

The chapter below contains a small loophole that will allow you to amass larger amounts of Tech Scrap, which is used as currency for upgrading your character and his equipment.

Amassing scrap may prove to be difficult, as you’ll encounter more and more powerful enemies in the course of your journey. However, the opponents which you’ve encountered in the earlier locations may be exchanged to security guards, who may prove to be quite difficult, but yield much more Tech Scrap.

The scheme is as follows:

  1. Choose a MedBay that is as close to an opponent as possible;
  2. Equip the implants that increase the amount of acquired scrap and engage the enemy;
  3. Lure the opponent as close to the MedBay entrance as possible. You can jump, which is definitely an audible move, or simply use a drone to engage your enemy.

Defeat the opponent and loot the scrap, then enter the MedBay. Now, instead of using the Medbay, interact with the Gear Assembly to respawn the enemy. Repeat the process until you’ve amassed the needed amount of scrap. Surprisingly, this approach is more than viable, considering that the amount of looted currency increases the longer you avoid using the MedBay. The multiplier is nullified in case of death, so stay close to the MedBay to be able to pick up your scrap in case you were defeated.

The whole process is dreary and repetitive, but it is the most convenient way of amassing scrap. Consider acquiring the reclamation implants (Reclamation Buddy) as these can increase the amount of gained scrap even up to 40%.

The chapter below describes the contents of the rooms beyond the locked security doors found in the initial areas of the game. You can revisit and open them later on to retrieve the items found inside.

Every CREO security room has a special camera planted above the panel

Each door requires you to wear a security rig which can be acquired after defeating Black Cerberus. Once you’ve equipped the new rig, return to the initial locations to open the door and retrieve the items found behind them.

Abandoned Production

Central Production B

You can find the security door by turning right after leaving the elevator which is used to access the zone boss. The room behind the door contains an implant – Vital Injection v.5 and a message panel that contains a recording: Failsafe Protocol 97:17:04.

Resolve Biolabs

To access the security room, travel to the Biolabs’ MedBay, then proceed through the lower floors to the elevator that leads to the courtyard. The area behind the door contains two implants – Pneumatic Calibrator v2 and Red X-Cables. Aside from the above, the room can be accessed from two different locations (three doors leading to a single room), and you can use it to skip your treks through the zone.

Ventilation Tower

The security room contains an implant – Vanadium E-Cell v3, and a weapon – MG Negotiator.

Research and Development

This security rom is larger and contains a few opponents. Defeat them to acquire Chrysalis armor and their weapons. Aside from the enemies, you can find three recordings: Failsafe Protocol 20:51:40; Dr. Lawrence Murphy, Log #17 and Dr. Lawrence Murphy, Log #14 and a conduit that can be overcharged in order to unlock the cases on the Exhibition Floor.
