Outcast - Second Contact Walkthrough

3. Ranzaar

Start a new game. You begin with a long cutscene which sets up the story - skip it if you want (cn_B and press cn_B and select SKIP MOVIE). When you are in control, jump into the options menu and change Damage resistance to High and Auto-replenish health bar to On if you want to make things easier.

You will be in Zokrym's hut. Notice how your scanner will identify some ammo on the floor nearby. Grab the HK-P12 ammo from the floor inside the building by walking over it before heading outside. Just walk over it to pick it up.

Press cn_RS to cycle through the map options.

Find Jan – as you approach a figure their name will be displayed above their heads for a short time and he should be identified on the larger map.

Jan will move around a bit but he is most likely in the building to the south-east. Speak to him using cn_X. He will have 4 tests for you to complete, which are simple tutorials. Ask about each in turn and he will lead you to them. You can then ask again for *TEST* INFO. Note that there is no notification that you have completed a test but if you ask about test info again Jan will tell you there is no need to repeat it.

Jump Test (on the right as you leave Zokrym's hut)– walk up the stairs and line yourself up with the gap. Press and hold cn_A to jump and glide over the gap and grab the treasure.

Target Test (on the left as you leave Zokrym's hut, near the circular portal)– there are 3 vases to shoot. First press cn_RT to bring up your weapons and choose the only one you have at this time - the HK-P12 in the top left. Hold cn_LT to aim and cn_RT to fire.

Swim Test (in the north-east corner)– as simple as jumping in the pool and swimming underwater using cn_LT. Note the O2 gauge in the bottom right. You will collect O2 cylinders that will allow you to stay underwater longer throughout the game. Grab the resources from under the water, especially the HK-P12 ammo.

Stealth Test (in the north-west corner) – press cn_LB to crouch behind the nearest box on the red cross. Jan will rotate through 3 angles. Move around to the right, going from cover to cover. Take your time and don’t try to move too far at once. You can press cn_RB to roll to the side if you need to. Get around to the opposite side where Jan put a piece of fruit. When you grab the fruit, you will complete the trial which unlocks:

Now find Zokrym, the chief you met in the initial cutscene. Tell him you are READY TO GO. Follow him as he slowly walks out to the portal, which you will have noticed near the Target Test to the south of the village. Zokrym will start up the portal and it will shimmer blue, so walk through to Shamazaar.
