Part 02 - Resource Recovery Units

Last Updated:
Here we have another branching path where your answer to the pod's question determines which character's story you get to play first. Unlike the first couple of playthroughs however, route C will constantly switch between A2 and 9S at certain points of the story. That said, I will start with 9S first.

You begin at the Resistance Camp where several sidequests are available to do right if you wish. Otherwise, head to the center of the City Ruins and try to hack into the main tower and one of the smaller sub-units. Listen to the cheerful message telling you about the how access keys are necessary to enter the tower, then leave so 9S tells his pod to mark the locations of the resource units on the map.

The Meat Box

The first one is over at the Forest Zone and you might also want to stop by the castle's library for a sidequest from Unit 4S. Anyway, head to where the target marker is and go around to find an entrance into the Meat Box. Here, you need to defeat all the enemies on each floor before being allowed to move up to the next. Such is the case for levels with a big open space at least. Otherwise, you can just head over to the elevator with little to resistance.

Keep at it until you get to the top of the tower where the core is located. Defeat all the defenders so you can watch as 9S ignores the core's plea and orders its destruction without remorse. You will receive your first access key. Examine one of the machines on the ground before you leave so that 9S kills it too.

The Soul Box

You'll find this next one at the Flooded City and it is surprisingly devoid of enemies. Instead what you have are locked treasure chests on each floor, which must all be hacked open to proceed. It is worth noting that the security systems in the hacking for each of these chests are way more aggressive than usual. In any case, you can grab a Full Recovery from the very first locked chest then move up to the next floor.

Here is a room full of goodies with each box containing maxed out plug-in chips and the Faith weapon. The locked chest you need to open is near the elevator, and that one has another fully-upgraded chip. Keep moving up and you'll eventually reach the top where 9S finds himself inside a hacking space. Defeat the creature that emerges from his own mind and witness his continued descent into madness. Also, the remains of 2B's flight unit lies on the side of the road here in the Flooded City, and in it is a recording of her final message for 9S.
