Vanishing Act Mission Tips & Tricks
5., 8. Find The 4 Fragments - Tips
Use Compass To Locate Fragments
The fragments are not marked in your radar so you need to manually locate them. Use your compass at the top of your screen to lead you towards the right direction.
Find Fragments On Ground Below Relic
Once you've interacted with the Relic, drop to the ground and locate the fragments in the area. These are shiny blue pieces of tech that are scattered around.
Drop Fragments In Transporter
You won't be able to fly when you pick a key item up. Locate the transporter on the ground to turn in the fragments needed to activate the Relic.
Destroy Elite Scar Hunters First As They Set Traps
You'll encounter powerful Elite Scar Hunters in this part of the mission. It's best to take them down first as they set off Seekers that can explode and instantly take down your shield.
Aim At Elite Scar Enforcers Arm Tanks To Blow Them Up
You'll be fighting against a lot of Elite Scar enemies and one of them is the Elite Scar Enforcer. Bringing a shield, it's very tanky and has a high HP bar. Aim for the gas tank on its arm to explode it and cause massive damage.
10. Defeat Talon - Tips
Plant Explosives On Shield Generators To Remove Talon's Shield
When you first encounter Talon in this fight, he'll be shielded. Fly around the area and grab the marked explosives. Then head back to Talon and place them on his shield generators.
Keep Near Signal To Arm Explosives
When you've planted the explosives onto the shield generators, stay within the central area to arm them. You need to defend yourself and keep enemies away from the area to progress the objective.
Use Long-Range Weapons Against Talon
Keep distance from Talon as he can deal massive damage towards you. Go towards one of the platforms away from the central area, use mid to long range weapons to take down his shield & health bar from there.
Use Acid Attacks On Talon To Deal Damage Over Time
Talon can be damaged by acid attacks so use them to help you lower his very long health bar.
13. Align Symbols - Tips
Follow The First Symbol & Align It To the Next 3
When solving the 4 puzzles, follow the symbol that's in the innermost ring. Then align it with the other same symbols in the outer rings until you lock all 4 together to solve it.
