There are 3 trips to complete in total all accessed from the items collected and added to the Bastion.. The first is activated by using the Pipe. The second by using the stockpot. The third by using the Bedroll.

The first two are easy. If you have difficulty with them then simply wait until you progress with the story and upgrade your weapons until you can beat them.

The final trip can be troublesome but I've found a decent setup which makes it fairly easy...

Your main weapon will be the flamethrower. I reccomend having at least 3 upgrades on it. I had 4 which were:
+20% Fuel
+1 Damage Per Flame
+20% Fuel
+25% Attack Speed

For your secondary weapon I reccomend the Fang Repeater. We won't actually be using it that much, we just want it's Secret Skill available to us. However it's still a good idea to upgrade it as you see fit.

The secret skill you want to equip is the snooze dart. This is obtained by winning first prize at the fang repeater proving ground which is easy enough once you've upgraded it a few times (Thanks to "neeker75" for confirming how to obtain Snooze Dart).

Now for tonics. The most important one is Leechade which enables you to regenerate health as you damage enemies. I also used Bastion Bourbon (Extra Health Tonics), Black Rye (Extra Black Tonics), Heart Punch (Extra Death), and Squirt Cider (Extra Max Health).

With this setup you are going to be using a lot less health tonics as the flamethrower + leechade will mean you are regening health at a decent rate.

So now for some tips on the enemies you'll encounter:

- The toughest guys are the Ulra Soldiers as they continually teleport around the arena. This is where the snooze dart skill comes in handy. Simply use it and flamethrower them to death. For the guys with the Spear/Sword simply hold block and wait for them to attack you. Once you block the attack they will stun themselves for a second giving you chance to flame them.

- The weird white dragon (rabbit??) things are easy enough. Just use the flamethrower and keep rolling around.

- On a few waves you will encounter giant plants that shoot out the spikey eye enemies. Simply focus on the plants and then take out the remaining eye dudes. Try not to let the giant spikey eyes touch you as they can deal some nasty damage.

- The gaint leaping frog guy is easy enough too. Just roll every time he jumps in the air and focus on attacking his behind.

- For the "security statues" which shoot the lasers, just get rid of them with your flamethrower as quick as possible. As long as you only have 1 or 2 attacking you at a time your health regen should negate the damage they do.

- FINAL TIP FOR THE FINAL WAVE. Try to save up some black tonics for the final wave as it's easy to get overwhelmed and heavily damaged due to the poison crossbow guy. I would focus on him first and then take out the others. With 3 or 4 snooze darts saved up this is easy.

That pretty much covers it. Leave any questions or corrections in the comment section and I'll do my best to get back to you.
