Assault Walkthrough

  • After you finish exploring Machine Village, head to City Ruins and head to the marker on the map near the giant Goliath. You will need to go up a giant tree root and over a roof to get there. The marker is located at the top of a building near another Goliath which can be reached by going up the many staircases inside. Once there you will need to defeat the Goliath.
  • You will be doing mostly range damage during this fight, so don't be afraid to use your Pod's charge attack as often as you can. Be sure to dodge when he swings both arms and tries to smush you. He is not overly difficult.
  • After defeating him board the flight units nearby. You will then take on another Goliath machine in an arial battle. Be sure to dodge his arm swipe and missiles. After defeating it a cut-scene will play and you will be put back into the City Ruins. This completes this quest.
