Weapon Story


 Level 1


In the capital of a distant Eastern land, there lived a poet who was devoted to his art. But his words failed to touch the hearts of the people, and he could make no profit from them. Soon, his life became unbearably hard."


 Level 2


Seeing the limits of his talent, the poet chose to abandon the pen and work the land instead. Soon, his lily white skin began to grow dark, and his once frail body became sinewy and tough"


 Level 3


He eventually married a kind woman, and several years later, they had a child. As the peaceful, uneventful days went on, the man began to feel that there could be no greater happiness in life. "


 Level 4


Or so the poet wrote before he put down his pen, swalloed the paper whole, and prayed that the next life might turn out so well.  He then took Faith-already stained with the blood of another-and plunged it deep into his chest."

      There will be more than 2 chests, depending on the number of sidequests/accomplishments you complete before entering the Soul Box. In my playthrough, there were 4 chests along the left side of the circle, one for hacking X number of enemies, one for completing machine lifeform requests, one for completing android requests, and one for collecting X number of collectibles. There may be more chests if you complete more unknown requirements.
      Faith was in a chest on the right side of the circle, the only chest there, and it was for killing X number of machine lifeforms. Not sure, but this might mean Faith could be missable if you don't kill enough machines before entering the Soul Box.
