[Episode 5] Welcome to the Jungle
As Navarro and Raz remain working on the Hull Drive, Hosaka escorts Acarno and Chris to the perimeter of the jungle in order to begin their advance on Jamelgalda Prison.
Acarno and Chris must take separate routes to aid each others progress through the jungle en route to the prison. Their first job is to disable a large device which is preventing anti-gravity technology (such as the Anti Gravity Controller for example) from being used – while avoiding the numerous hazards en route.
Towards the end of the cut scene you will be prompted to choose which route through the jungle Acarno and Chris should take. As only Acarno can equip helpful items such as the WET SUIT, choose him to take the “West route”.
Select “It’s OK” when prompted.
You begin as Acarno taking the West route through the jungle – note that the GRAVITY CONTROLLER will not work for the time-being. Head to Acarno’s right and through the passage between the trees.
Emerging in a new area, ensure that the SHOCK ABSORBER boots are equipped as there are hidden explosives in the ground – these are best avoided altogether by sticking to the left hand side of the clearing. There are a couple of items to collect as you progress;
Now playing as Chris, you’ll immediately be presented with instructions on how to drive the boat you find yourself in control of.
There is no rush to complete this section, as the CP ranking you are given is based on the amount of health you have left at the end. With this in mind, steadily continue on down the river avoiding the rocks. A couple of minutes later, the boat will come to a stop.
Back in control of Acarno, continue running forwards until you drop off the edge of the cliff and into the water below where you’ll find an item.
In the next area equip the SHOCK ABSORBER boots and PARA JACKET – this will allow you to glide while jumping. Approach the bridge directly in front of you.
Once Chris has finished talking, head over to the control panel attached to the base of the large anti-gravity defence station.
