4. Stages 5-8
Stage 5: Dead Sea
North Atlantic - Head right to an arena fight against the strongest enemy in the game and it will be a pain in your ass for the rest of your playtime. It's a laser cannon (henceforth LC). It shoots a laser left or right and then sweeps the laser to the other direction. This is also where I had to stop playing on normal because I struggled. The main problem with LCs is when they are shooting in your direction and they hit you before you can even react. The good news is that you can freeze them, which not only stops them from moving but also stops the laser for the duration. Anyway, destroy this one to clear the fight. Head right to find two more LCs, and then 2 more after that in an arena fight. Destroy the LCs and then you just have a few mosquitoes to kill. Head right for another arena fight, destroy the ship first. Head right afterward and you'll reach the next area.
Buoyant Travel Bags and Shipwrecks - This area is simple. Head right, jumping across the boxes as you go. You'll come across the next area eventually.
Battleship "Great Union" - Head right through a ton of enemies to an arena, the main enemy is a couple of the red guys. Once it's clear the next area is a tiny bit to the right.
Ghost Fleet - Head right into an arena with easy enemies. Head right for the MC Niltor's Resonance and the next area.
Rudderless Voyage - Head right until you see the tip of a platform above you. Jump onto it and head left, and jump onto the next platform. Head left until you see a platform with red lights, jump onto it. Jump to the one to the right, then the left platform, and then the one above that. There's another platform to the right, and then one to the left. Above this is the MC Frezos's Rise. Drop down to the big platform, and head right onto the next one. The edge of this platform is sloped down, you want to jump into the air and a little to the right to find the MC Kutoh's Taste. Now head right until you get an arena fight. It's just purple bees. About 175-200 of them. This is a great place to get the achievement for a 100 kill chain. When you kill enemies rapidly you see a number and then kill, which is your kill chain. So you only need to get 100 of the 175-200 bees. The easiest way to do this is to use your Nive MC to get body slam, and then intentionally run into the bees to kill them. Your HP/MP will be refilled at 50 and 100 kills, so don't worry if you get hit a few times, and since there are way more than 100 bees, don't worry if miss some, just make sure to keep the chain going. Once they're all dead, the stage is complete. You'll pick up an achievement if you get a 100 kill chain.

Stage 6: Hades Opens
Cruiser "Revolutia" - Head right, you'll run into a ton of LCs, and there's also a canister after the 6th LC or so that will be shooting at you the whole time. Use freeze liberally and make your way right. You'll reach an arena, destroy the ship. Once it's done, head right. You'll need to jump onto boxes and avoid falling into the water. You also want to keep an eye ahead. Once you start seeing purple bees, 2-3 boxes later you'll see a red structure ahead of you with an MC at the top called Motaht's Attachment. 3 boxes later you'll be on a red box, and to the right is the MC Ceno's Therapy. On the next box, you'll see the Tycal MC up and to the right. If you miss it you might fall into the next area and will have to replay the stage to get it. Not that it matters much since it's close to the start anyway.
Great Ocean Waterfall - When you move right the screen will move on its own, so you need to keep your eyes open for the MCs in this area since you have a limited time to grab them. On about the 10th box (which is red after a few grays) you'll see an MC to your right called Cassus's Resistance, make sure to grab it. Continue right and you'll see a big ship skeleton in the background. At the end of it is the next MC Lofa's Tragedy in the air. After 5-6 more boxes, you'll see the last MC, Alua's Indifference. A few boxes below that is the next area.
Underwater Space Base - Head down to the bottom, there's a ton of LCs on the way and a canister or two. If you want you can simply keep dropping down through every platform to avoid fighting any of the LCs, I really hate fighting them in the vertical parts. At the bottom, you'll have an arena fight. There's not even that many enemies, so it's a quick fight. It also ends the stage.
Stage 7: Enormous Route
Infiltration - Easy area. Simply head right to the exit. There's mostly easy stuff, but there are 2 sets of 2 laser cannons. As always freeze them and destroy them before they can hit ya.
Escape Velocity - Head right. You'll come across a group of 3 laser cannons and a bunch of fodder. Freeze and destroy the cannons and a little further right you'll see a breakable block, but for now, head up. Jump up the platforms and head right and you'll reach the next area.
Reconnaissance - Head up, you'll have to deal with 2 laser cannons as you climb. Once you reach the top head left. Break a few blocks and then cross two chasms with flame traps, and you'll see a partially obscured block, break it and go left to enter a secret room.
Secret Room Complications - Like most secret rooms, head right to an arena. Mostly bees. Once it's clear head right to find the MC Frezos's Festival. Head right to the next area.
To Space - Simply head right to the next area. You'll have 2 groups of 2 laser cannons, and a BT after the second group of LCs.
Hijacked Battleship - Head right to the next area, you'll have a bunch of blocks to destroy on the way. 3 Lasers cannons and a bullet turret on the way.
No Survivors - Again, 2 more sets of 2 laser cannons. You'll reach a dead-end where you can go down, instead break the block to the right and head right. You'll come to a bullet turret, and then the exit to a secret area.
Secret Room Oblivion - Head right for an arena. Mostly bees, but you'll have to contend with the rotating walls as you fight. To the right is the MC Thor's Arc Squad++.
Autopilot - Head right to find 3 laser cannons and a bullet turret, freeze them before you head in there or you can get blown up real quick. Continue right, and right before the exit, you'll find 3 more laser cannons and another BT.
Freight - Head right, you'll run into 2 laser cannons, and right after that is that big laser cannon boss. The main difference is that you can simply jump on the upper left platform to avoid the blast, and no blocks fall. If you use body slam and make sure you're close enough for it to proc, you might be able to destroy it before it can even fire once, though I wouldn't push it. Go right to the next area.
To The Moon - The final stage is quite odd. Head right and then grab the ceiling and head right. You'll come across 2 laser cannons, and when you do look at the ceiling, as you should see an MC nearby after you kill them. Move under it and then climb up and grab the LC Levint. Continue right to the "boss". It's an arena fight with a bunch of bees coming from the left and right. Simply use body slam and let the bees run into you. Every once in a while they will shoot at you...not really a ton you can do about it considering the battlefield. If you let go of the ceiling you'll just take some small damage. Heal if necessary. Once they're all dead the stage ends.
Infiltration > Escape Velocity - Head right as last time, but this time when you reach the wall break it and go right to a secret area instead of going up. You'll come across FIVE laser cannons together, freeze 'em and destroy 'em. Then continue right.
Secret Room Unhinged - Head right for an arena. It has a little bit of everything but most of the enemies are the purple bees. Just cast body slam and stand still and they'll suicide on you. One it's clear head right to find the MC Thor's Arc Army, and then continue right to the next area.
Far From Space - Head down. You'll come across 2 laser cannons as you go down. Once you reach the bottom, break the walls to your left and head left. Keep going until you reach what appears to be a gold platform. Crouch down (Hold ) and use a charge attack to break the walls under the platform, then drop down and get the MC to your left, Thor's Arc Combo+. Now head right. Right before you reach the next area you'll find a BT and an LC.
Lunar Orbit - Head right until you see paths going above and below. You want to head down until you reach the next area.
Blaster Cannon - Head down to the bottom, you'll find 3 LCs on the way down. Once you hit the bottom go left. After you break two walls you'll see one more, and past that is the MC Kutoh's Tenacity. Head right, you'll see a few LCs, and then the next area.
The Target is Always Straight Ahead - Head right and then follow the path down, you'll have a few LC on the way. When you reach the bottom head right. You'll find a breakable block, and a path going up. Break the block and go right.
Secret Room Rigid - Head right to an arena, mostly bees as usual. Once it's clear head right to find the MC Alua's Silence. Head right to the next area.
Bullet Nest - Head right until you see a path going up, and go through the block going right as you've done like ten times in this stage. Head right all the way to the wall. Backtrack a few steps and look down, and you'll see a partially obscured MC. Drop down the platform above it to find Nive's Fury. Go back to the path going up and do so to the next area.
Freight/To The Moon
Stage 8: Battle Planet
You'll need a total of 4 playthroughs to get everything, so get ready for some tedium.
Planet Blaster Satellite "Luna" - Simply head right to the next way, nothing but fodder in the way.
Look Down on Treacherous Countries - Head right and then you'll have to go down. You'll have laser cannons as you go down, so be ready to freeze a lot. At the bottom, you'll find a floating platform going to the right, jump onto the next one (there's an LC on the ceiling) and then jump on the left wall and head up (it's the wall a little bit to the right of the LC). At the top head left and destroy the wall to find an MC behind it called Niltor's Chorus. Head right. When the floor opens up to the flames, jump onto the ceiling and head right to the next area. There are 2 LCs on the way.
Secret Room Suspicion - Head right for an arena. A couple floating ships, but other than that nothing special. Once it's clear head right for the MC Falk's Euphoria, and then to the next area.
Earth Watcher - Head right. There's a ton of LCs, so be ready to freeze. You'll reach a spot where you can continue right or go down, go right. When you have to slide, you'll have a bunch of LCs after it.
Cannon Control Room - Head right and you'll encounter some BTs, when you see a pit head right and slide under the wall. Head right and then head down, and at the pit go right again to find the laser reflector miniboss. After that head right, slide under the wall and deal with the LC. Then break the wall and kill the next LC and head up. Head right at the top to find 4 LCs together, once they're gone continue right to the next area.
Heavenly Sniper - Head right. You'll reach a fork where you can go up or slide right, head up to the next area. You'll face a few LCs before the exit.
Ruler of Earth - Head up and you'll find a few BTs. At the top head right for a new hazard. You'll see flame spouts, wait until they fire and go past them once the fire goes down. Head right to the next area.
Moonlight Destructor - Head right past the flame pit, and when the room opens up you want to head up and to the right to find the MC Frezos's Excitement. With that head back to where the room opened up and then head down to the next area. There's a BT and LC in the way.
Burning Light - Head down and keep an eye on the right wall. You'll see a wall you can break but it leads to nothing. Further down, right after a BT, you'll see another wall you can break on the right, break the wall and continue right. Destroy the floating ship and continue right to the wall and keep pushing right and you'll get the MC Thor's Arc Squad. Backtrack to where you were going down and continue to do so to the next area.
The Door Has Been Closed - Head down. You'll reach a spot where there's a breakable wall on the left and right (you might see the arrow sending you right) break the left wall and head left. You'll find the MC Thor's Arc Squad+. Now break that right wall and head through. You'll come across a floating ship and then 2 LCs, and then the exit.
Firebird in the Void - Head right, and at the pit head up for an arena with a bunch of fodder. Head right once it's clear. You'll reach another arena, once it's clear head up for another arena. Once it's clear head up yet again. At the top head right for a boss. Start by attacking the egg or whatever until it breaks, then the boss proper starts. He has 3 attacks. He either spits fire that falls onto the ground and just like when we saw him the first there is a red aura where it will land. He also shoots bullets from his head in an arc, they do about the same damage as a BT. His third attack is to turn into a flame ball and bounce around the arena. The entire fight you'll see flames on the ground that mean a small explosion is about to happen there. It can be hard to dodge everything. I just kept jumping and smacking the boss until it died, healing as needed. Once it's dead the stage is over, and you'll get an achievement.
