    General tips:
    Spam A
    Forget Octo-lock
    Go for smaller enemies first
    Don't be afraid to take some hits, killing enemies is more important and there’s a fair bit of health on the level.

    *It's worth pausing on each Orb and checking your progress against the guide below

    Wave 1-1:
    Health Orb = 52%
    Different blobs that shoot first set = 72%
    Health Orb = 80%
    Second set = 100%

    Wave 1-2:
    Sets of birds = 12%
    Jellyfish set 1 = 28%
    Jellyfish = 44%

    Health Orb

    Birds and jelly fish = 51%
    1 jelly fish = 53%
    Eels = 65%

    Euphoria Orb

    1 x eel = 71%
    2 x eels = 83%
    Jelly fish = 87%

    Health Orb

    More jellyfish = 93%
    Distant eel = 100%

    Wave 1-3:
    2 x Birds = 4%
    4 x Birds = 12%
    2 x Purple blobs = 21%
    3 x blobs = 35%

    Health Orb

    2 x Birds = 39%
    Stingray = 49%

    Euphoria Orb

    4 x purple blobs = 67%
    4 x birds = 76%

    Health Orb

    Stingray = 86%
    purple blobs = 100%

    Wave 1-4: The Whale
    Stingrays count (1st and 4th give health Orbs) – I just blasted them as soon as I saw them there are four in total.
    First pass to head = 4%
    Clear head for 6%
    Pass to tail = 12%
    Tail = 18%
    Whale spins = 19% (just after the spin and kill first few)
    Around 23% for the head

    Cutscene = 43%

    Changes shape = 50%

    Use at least one bomb

    Lumi appears =91%

    Use final two bombs batter her !!

    Even knowing all of the above this was very hard to unlock in one playthrough.
    Learn each section, hope and pray.

    Hope this guide helps, any questions or complaints just let me know.

    Good luck!!

    DarklightsRaptures Lost Not sure mate, are the percentages correct all the way through? If so are you using bombs at the end?

    Morpheus414I wanted to let everyone know(and I've also posted this on the other 100% guides) that Child of Eden(at some point) has been updated, and it NOW shows Purification progress for each area!! So in addition to using these guide to help you, instead of guessing and thinking about a certain percentage, you'll know FULL well whether you've completely cleared that area or not! Spread the word!! smile

    This is are excellent guide for this level, for the Gold Star (100% + 800k) rank you definitely need some practice, but you can get the 100% on your first try. Just follow the video, this is very detailed and useful guide.

    All of the enemies in this level are clearly visible and easy to hit. Just remember that for the purple shrimp, you should use plain purple bullets, cn_RT.
