    This is story related and not missable. Mild spoiler alert

    In order to obtain you must defeat the Matriarch, which is basically your classic berserker boss fight.

    Here’s some tips to make the fight easier:

    The trick to making this easy is to keep dropping the boss into the ice pools. Wait for it to be stood over the pool or about to charge over the pool and shoot out the ice. Once it’s dropped in and frozen go to town shooting it in the back. The best weapon I found for this was the Gnasher. You can do massive amounts of damage with some active rounds up close.

    There will be 3 occasions during the fight when Kait is transported into Swarm world. During these times just hang around the nearest ice pool and wait for the boss to approach you, as soon as they’re over the pool shoot out the ice.

    The boss will also throw spikes from time to time make sure to roll clear of these as they can damage you a lot and open you up to being charged and killed instantly.

    With these tips you shouldn’t have any trouble clearing this boss fight swiftly.

    VGM 007 This was a miserable garbage fight. I tried getting up close with the gnasher, half the time Kate would fall in the ice too. Had a few times where the boss was too close to a wall & I couldn't get around for a shot. Then during the third swarm vision, the boss can stealth jump and show up right behind you. Not to mention Del being a useless ass with a pipe who will stand in the way sometimes & get killed.

    The far left corner has two cryo cannons if anyone wants to use those, but I found it too cumbersome to freeze, drop the gun, roll behind and shoot. Jacks flash ability with freeze also works, but requires a lot of stalling for cooldowns.

    Flabyo Jack’s flash, if you got it fully upgraded in the open world section before this, will get you out of jams.

    Still took me more than an hour though, one hit instant deaths are dumb games design.
