Where to Find Engine Blade in NieR Automata

  • As part of a main story quest, you will descend using an elevator to a lower part of the Abandoned Factory. You'll eventually have to escape. Along the way, you will have to travel across a conveyor belt with crushers to get to the next tower. Once you get to the outside of said tower and start climbing again, watch for a platform that extends toward the camera. This will allow you to jump across the tops of the crushers. If you're having trouble, double jump, hold X to grab the pod, and simultaneously press Square to do a spinning kick that lets you hover for a moment. Make it to the other end and you'll find a door leading to a wide room with two large treasure chests (one locked) and a small chest. The unlocked chest on the left contains the Engine Blade
