All Combat Drone Modules


There are twelve combat drone modules you can find and collect in order to get the achievement/trophy called Swiss Army Drone. Note: there are also drone attachments available for you to collect. However, these don’t count toward the achievement/trophy and aren’t required. If you’re having any trouble finding the combat drone module locations, use the video guide below for help.

Secret Messages

Easter Eggs

The power plant in Port Nixon contains runes on the walls that can be translated to reveal secret messages. These messages read:

  • “Beyond flesh and bone”
  • “Embrace the teachings of the Spark”
  • “Join the Spark!”
  • “Reshape the world”
  • “Path to deliverance”

Med bay song

Easter Eggs

The med bay song “Prisoner” by Stumfol, which was featured in the first game, can be found by interacting with a specific med bay in the game. This will also give you the trophy/achievement called “What a Catchy Song.” Although unrelated to the trophy/achievement, the Stranger will sometimes hum the tune, as well.

Tools and Abilities


Special tools and abilities can be unlocked to give you access to new areas and other helpful benefits.

EMP-44 Starfish – This lets you unlock magnetic locks. You get it by defeating Little Johnny.

Force Hook – This lets you travel down exo-wires. It can be found in the abandoned city, by accessing the lift near the area with children’s decorations.

Lifter Hook – This lets you travel up exo-wires. You’ll get it from an NPC after meeting Brother Eli for the second time.

Special attack – This lets you break through certain walls. It is unlocked after you return to CREO University as part of the plot.

All V2.0 Weapons


When you fight bosses, you can get special V2.0 weapons by fighting the boss in a particular way. Each has a secret way of winning, which rewards you with a V2.0 weapon. These special weapons and powerful and well worth pursuing.

  • Little Johnny’s Forceps V2.0 – Cut off Little Johnny’s claw arms during the fight.
  • Helix of the Delver V2.0 – Break Delver’s armor during the fight. It doesn’t matter if the armor is restored, as long as you broke each piece at least once.
  • General’s A.C.U. V2.0 – Use the alternate method to defeat General Ezra by cutting off one of his arms. You can also get the Vulc-88 “Panthera” Rotary Gun by destroying his mech’s flamethrower.
  • Icon of the Spark V2.0 – Sever both of Matriarch Celeste’s mechanical arms before defeating her.
  • Greatblade of the Archangel V2.0 – Break all of Archangel Eli’s armor during the fight.

If you’re having trouble beating the bosses in the correct way to get the V2.0 weapons, the video guides below show you how to do it.

There is also one additional V2.0 weapon available not connected to boss fights.

  • Warren’s Redemption V2.0 – Complete all of Warren’s quests.

All Sniper Locations


There are five snipers in the game using turrets to attack. If you take down all five, you’ll get the achievement/trophy called Counter-Sniper. If you’re having any trouble finding the five sniper locations, use the video guide below for help.

Basic Tips


Med bays are where you’ll respawn when you die and also where you can upgrade your character and gear. Scrap can also be banked at a med bay so you don’t lose it when you die. Bank it in order to store it there for when you want to lose it later.

The flipside of banking Scrap is that it’s a risk-reward system. The longer you go without banking your Scrap (or losing it), the more Scrap you’ll get.

Make sure to balance your stats. Each stat is valuable, and since you get decreasing returns as you increase a stat, it’s better to approach them in a more balanced way.

Energy builds up as you attack enemies. This means it’s often in your best interest to play offensively rather than defensively.

Drones are very helpful. Make good use of them, especially if you’re trying to sever an enemy’s limbs or target its weak points.

Speaking of which, severing limbs is highly encouraged. You can get special loot, including powerful weapons and upgrades for your armor.

It’s also important to learn how to parry. Parrying is not only helpful in regular combat, but lets you stun bosses by parrying their attacks a certain number of times, as indicated by the number of shields the boss has.

You’ll often find new weapons. Switch out your old weapon for a better one whenever you can.

Be sure to explore thoroughly in order to find not only items, but also shortcuts that will help you quickly return to your previous location if you die. Each area has numerous shortcuts, so keep your eyes open.

You’ll also come across plenty of areas you can’t access yet until you get a particular tool or skill. Try to remember where these spots are so you can backtrack to them later.
