Where to Find\Location

  • Found in the Desert Zone after an event marker appears. Its high-pitched signal gets louder as you approach it, helping you pinpoint its location.



  • The built-in lock-on allows for a firing without manual aiming, making this Pod an excellent choice for Hard and Very Hard, where lock-on is otherwise disabled.
  • Missiles have a chance to knock back or stagger certain foes.

      POD C is especially useful on very open space locations, like the DLC Arenas or Adam's Pit. Since you're running around most of the time preparing high-damage melee attacks, you can just keep pressed the Missile Attack button for increased free damage without giving any additional coordination thoughts.
      It's also super-useful on Linked-Spheres enemies, because, given enough space, it will automatically try to hit the enemy weak spot (provided that it don't change it in the time the missile is fired - in that case the missile autoguide is usually not enough to correct the hit). The only Linked-Spheres enemies that are problematic with POD C, are the one that zig-zag vertically while attacking you (like the Drill ones in the collapsed area in the Ruined City).

        It seens that you can also pick this pod up from fishing. I got both pods B and C from randomly fishing in the Flooded City area while testing out the feature.

          Well I'm SOL, I'm missing one Powerup Part S and I did Anemone's Past, Robo-Dojo Red belt and killed the vengeful child and his brothers in all 3 locations. I might of missed one from killing the golden bipeds and I can't go back.
