1~4. Not a 100% Drop
The Messy Breakup can only be dropped by GenIVIV, but it's not a 100% drop. It might take a while before the Messy Breakup drops when you defeat GenIVIV.
3. GenIVIV Found at the End of Family Jewel
There's a linear way of going around the Family Jewel to get to the Bridge where GenIVIV is. Follow the map above to find the way.
4. Defeat GenIVIV Tips
Bring Shock & Corrosive Weapons
GenIVIV's health bars are composed of a shield bar and an armor bar. In order to make quick work of this enemy, it is recommended to bring a shock weapon to decimate her its shields, and a corrosive weapon to melt its armor.Check Out Elemental Damage Types Here!
BALEX Will Assist You During the Fight
To pay you back for helping him out at the start of the mission, BALEX will assist you in fighting GenIVIV. However, after breaking the shield, BALEX will malfunction and it is up to you to finish GenIVIV off!
Bouncing Balls Can Be Destroyed
GenIVIV will also throw out Bouncing Balls. These balls can deal damage to you and can overwhelm you if not dealt with. Shoot at these balls to destroy them immediately.
Will Summon GenIONs to Harass You
GenIVIV will summon small GenIONs to harass you during the fight. You can pay no mind to these enemies as they don't do much damage. However, you can use them to gain a second wind if you ever fall in battle.
Shoot Down Floating Drones
GenIVIV will also summon drones to aid her. These drones fire at you during certain intervals. They can deal a lot of damage if they aren't dealt with as soon as possible so shoot them down as soon as they appear.
