There are many collectibles hidden throughout the game. These include documents detailing Objects of Power and Altered Items, other documents expanding the worldbuilding, letters and correspondances, and multimedia presentations.
If you’re having trouble finding any of the collectibles, use the video guides below for help
At Hidden Locations, you will be able to obtain additional ability points not obtained through missions. There are 19 of these hidden areas for you to find. If you’re having trouble finding any of them, use the video guide below for help.
Control points serve as respawn points if you die, so make sure to touch a control point when you pass it so that you’ll respawn there, even if you don’t intend to save at that one.
If you see an area you can’t access yet, or if there’s a side mission that takes you to an area where you feel greatly underpowered, it is most likely that you’re supposed to return there later. Leave for now and return when you’re prepared for it.
Using the map can be difficult, so make sure you pay attention to signs that point the way to different areas and rooms.
Stay in motion during combat. Moving around will make it harder for enemies to attack you, while standing still or trying to stay behind one point of cover can make you vulnerable.
Throwing items at enemies can be more effective than just using your ammo. Keep an eye on your energy, but make sure to use Launch (and your other abilities as well) as part of combat.
Try out different Service Weapon forms. Grip is the default, but you unlock others you can use as well. You can pause to equip different Service Weapon forms from the menu even during combat.
The blue fragments enemies drop heal you. If you’re low on health, run toward them to pick some up.
Equipping a health recovery mod can also help you keep your health up during combat.
NPCs can give you side missions, so be sure to talk to them often.
Board Countermeasures are optional quests used to earn more XP and crafting materials. You can have up to three active at a time, and they’re essentially challenges you have to complete, such as killing a certain number of enemies in a specific way. If you want a different countermeasure, just abandon one and take a different one. You’ll always be able to try more.
