There are nine episodes to finish. The higher the episode, the better the gear and upgrade materials you can get. So don't try to farm everything in the lower episodes. The higher episodes are more difficult, but worth it.

Every episode is a set of two locations (out of six possible ones) and the boss area. The locations are the same, the enemies change, though. However, if you're familiar with the geography, you will know the tricks... the shortcuts etc.


Frontier Journeys - train bridge - can be run through without fighting!!!! This will be extremely helpful in the final episode with the dark crystal enemies..... Just run along the tracks and don't fall down. It can be done, saves a lot of time and effort!

Frontier Mirage - sunny areas burn you, take your health. There is a shortcut you unlock. Also, the area right at the end of the location (when you have switched off the lights) can be run through without killing the enemy/enemies. Extremely helpful with the Black Cerberus enemy in episode 8!

Frontier Riches - there is a platform you need to stand on to lower the gate leading forward. Just step on it once and focus on the enemies that will come from three tunnels above. Just focus on one as soon as he falls down, take them out one by one. The second pressure plate can be avoided once you have unlocked the shortcut.

Frontier Abyss - this one is a pain, try not to fall down... there is a shortcut right after the first area. If you kill the enemies, the mining cart will no longer run on the tracks and you can leave through the door at the end of the track.

Frontier Crypt - be careful of the area that will lock down when you enter. When you get rid of the enemies, new ones will spawn and you can't escape! There's a trick, you can lure the enemies out before the area shuts down (use your drone and stay out). However, you have to enter the arena before you kill the last enemy, otherwise the game will bug out on you, and you will be unable to leave! Also, there is a shortcut, so you don't need to run through the arena on your way back.

Frontier Town - there is a useful shortcut to unlock

I hope this helps.
