Implosion – Never Lose Hope: Walkthrough Guide, Tips and Tricks

Chapter 4:

Mission C4-1, Rapture:

Mission C4-2, Melting Steel:

This is another defensive level and it’s tough! You can’t let more than four enemies cross the barrier. The last three enemies are those purple guys with axes. But you get a nice laser gun to use on them if you manage to make it that far.

Mission C4-3, Inferno:

Mission C4-7, Last Light:

This level is insane. There are two Praetors, then another one appears after you kill the first two off. And later you have more of the purple axe guys. I ended up using 3 revives! But you can play it a bit smarter by running around to find all the hidden health packs and guns and hiding while your shield replenishes. It’s a crazy mission, though.

Mission C4-8, Requiem – Duja boss:

Careful here — there are flaming traps that will hurt badly if you get hit by them.
There’s a boss in this level, called Duja. He’s ugly and does this rolling attack. But after he rolls, he gets tired and lies on his back for a few seconds. Take advantage of this. Evade his attacks as much as you can and then go in to attack when he’s tired. He also shoots some fireballs and pounds the ground, but those are easier to avoid than his rolls.

Mission C4-9, Implosion – Rana boss:

Ok, this guy is tough. Really tough. I used all 5 revives! He hits hard and is really hard to evade. Good luck!

Mission C4-10, The Showdown – Tyranus boss:

Holy crap. This guy is tough. He’s hard to dodge and he hits hard.

Can’t see any comments, so if this is a repeat of info sorry. I’m just grinding to level and am finding the best method to do so is the snow boss. With 2x 9% exp boosts I get 19k per clear. I use all power and ballistics, go in and dump 20 shot gun rounds in him and he’s dead. Takes me 2 mins tops to run the mission. Otherwise, your guide is really the only one I found so far and is a good walk through, especially since the game is a week old. Hopefully you can expand it for others to include farming for exp/cash, drops, etc. I am lvl16 now, waiting until at least 20 to unlock Crimson to see if she is lvl15 by default or not. I’ll let you know what I find out when I do.

Hey great guide! I just recently beat the game and went back to do some badges. I got Crimson when my Avalon was at level 17 Crimson was 15 so I believe it’s just the automatic starting number (maybe it goes by fives so it makes sense to try at lvl 20)

So, got lvl 20 and unlocked Crimson and she was still lvl 15. So it seems that 15 is default.

Juuuuust curious but how LONG did it take you to get Crimson?? And do you HAVE to spend badges or does she just unlock at a certain time in the game??

Trial version is for Android only – It is free for download but you get to play the first 6 missions only. You are stuck with the trial version until you pay

For IOS you get to pay right at the download — no trial verion

It’s my 5th day playing this game and I got Crimson at 4th. You just need to earn 42 badges to unlock her (without spending a badge)

Martow

I was early into ch3 when I was able to get Crimson, about level 15-16. But, I waited until level 20 to get Crimson to see if her level would change when you get her, which it didn’t. It only took a few days of playing an hour a day approximately.

The badges are permanent, so if you get the badge rewards as you progress you don’t lose any.

I haven’t seen a trial version, therefore I have no idea either whether or not if there is a difference.

Level cap… No idea either I’m not at 30 yet, been sick the past week so haven’t been able to work on it. The developers videos and screenshots show level 30 so I’m assuming 30 as well.

Thanks for the guide. I was going nuts trying to figure out how to get the hacker. I figured it was an ark ability but I’m only level 5 so far. Just found it peculiar one of the earliest badges says open the secret room and I can only assume it’s the giant locked door haha. Well written guide and even better with the pics!

Played it through normal, am now on expert, and the blocked path that reads “no access” in ch.1 lvl 5 Fatality March is still blocked off. Anybody figured out yet how to gain access here?

Comments for Mission C3-4, Möbius Strip:

By hacking the two doors you can reach the destination point right away, without risking yourself with the traps you’d otherwise face on the way. Just equip the Lv.3 hacker ARK you get from badge award.

However you will have to deal with all the mid-sized bosses (5-6 of them!) in the same room so you better be prepared.

Has anyone figured out what these are? There seems to be no in game explanation.

Rage – Is this pertaining to non powered hit combos? But it has to be separate from Normal Arc Damage.
Raging Rate – No idea…
Heavy Attack Damage – Is this pertaining to powered hits with the purple circle?
Agility % – Does this reduce recharge time of evade?

Also I can’t seem to find sound options in the game. Guess I wont be listening to a podcast while playing this game.

Hello! I’ve been playing the game for a while, and I figured that:
-Rage: is the meter that you use when you unleash an special attack. Its RA! Notice that every special attack uses some segments of the meter under your HP. So, if an ark says “1 Rage”, you will have 1 segment more to spend!
-Raging Rate: It indicates how much rage you regain when you hit an enemy with a normal attack. So, If an ark says “20% Raging Rate”, with each hit you regain 20% more than if nothing equiped.
-Heavy attack damage: as you say, it is the damage you deal with the attacks after the purple circle appears.
-Agility: Notice that sometimes an anemy misses an attack? and when that happens, appears something like “Missed” in yellow letters? That’s it! If you have a lot of Agility, the XADA won’t even touch you!
These are my theories about those stats, but I don’t now if they’re entirely correct. Anyway, hope it helps!

Kinda sucks that you can’t earn any badge, when you equip an infinite-ammo gun

I just passed the game a couple of times and earned enough badges to get infinite xada destroyer. It was a solid and enjoyable game. I do have some issues. First, I like games that you have to hunt for rare items. It brings me much joy to get those shiny red boxes. However, I don’t get why major bosses don’t drop anything. Also, I have not received any lv 20+ excellent items even if I have my item drop rate at 114%. Second, Crimson doesn’t have her own cutscenes, this could have boosted the replay value. Third, I wish there was an in-game guide to explain what stats like endurance mean and such.

Never mind, it seems all the higher lever ark stuff are obtained in expert mode. Also, I didn’t think you can get excellent items if you had infinite weapons equipped, but you can. Red boxes are more difficult to get though but I really want my warmechs to have lv 30 equipment.

Finding high-level red ARKs are pain in the butt, especially not all of them suit your needs…

Arievo

Do you know how to open the blocked path in chapter 1? I think the blocked path is in the 3rd or 4th map of chapter 1. I try to clear the area, shot the blocked path with the rocket launcher, but useless. I the previous room, you can see ‘clear the area’ sign, but I couldn’t go back there since the door is loocked. Thank you very much if you can figure it out and share it

The only excellent lv 30 ark fragment that I found was a Thor factor. High lv ark fragments can be found in expert mode. Tell me if they are hard to get cuz I’m unlucky or something.

Currently I have been running C4-2 Melting Steel (Expert) with Avalon with all item find ARKs. And an infinite rocket launcher. The 3 purple dudes at the end have a high drop rate. I have found several level 30 red ARKs for the 3 outside categories. The highest center ARK I have found is level 22.

I’m using android version. I didn’t have much luck getting much of anything on the level you told me. I did find higher drop rates on other stages. Yeah, my max item drop rate is at 128%. I wonder if excellent versions exist. Arayark was not kind enough to give us an item list or something.

How do you get 128% drop rate? Best I have is 80% – two level 10 advanced Blood Hound ARKs (40% drop rate each)… Haven’t gotten anything better even though I’ve been farming C4-2 Melting Steel on expert mode…

Extra Sensory Perception and Theta Wave Activity.

Trying to pass later expert stages without my infinite xada destroyer is incredibly difficult. I would like a higher drop rate like in hard mode. Lv 30 red boxes could make things a bit more enjoyable.

Grecador

I completed expert using Avalon with 2 occulomotor enhancements (28% ballistics each) 2 zero-point energy shields (521 shield each) and 5% agility arks… Forgot the name. While using an infinite rocket launcher, the reason being that it has knockback as well as area of effect damage.

What I haven’t been able to find… Yet. Are any red(at any level) theta wave or occulomotor enhancements. They are shown in the promotional footage in the app store.

If you go to the google play store, and look at the photos posted by rayark. The last photo of the ARK system shows a red occulomotor enhancement(ballistic damage) and a red theta wave(item find)

I haven’t found them in game yet, but I am curious if they only drop on lower levels?

FAST WAY TO CRANK UP YOUR LEVEL
I find that bosses are vulnerable to fire attacks, so equip your infinite flamethrower and fight the final boss on EASY mode, and you can gain around 20k experience in one go (my best time is 46 seconds). Keep farming this mission and you’ll get to Level 30 pretty easily

Grecador

Confirmed. This is how i leveled to 30. Although I used infinite rocket launcher.

Tripolic X

Leveling up is easy in the game. I found more lv 30 red boxes but on a different level, melting steel to be exact. I played the game more on expert to see if there was a pattern. It seems that one level on each stage has higher drop rate than the others. I’m not sure if most of you noticed that on some levels, enemies drop absolutely nothing. However, on just one level on that stage, enemies seem to drop something every time. Those are the stages I’ve been hunting for red boxes.

I was so excited that I found a rare red lambda unit, the large center slot, but alas it was lv 22. Why!!!???
It did have nice stats but my favorite shield breaking ability was absent. I found a weaker advance version earlier.

I’m steadily getting the lv 30 red arks i need but no item finders or ballistics yet. The thing that annoys me most is the low level arks you get on expert mode. Post your finds if anyone gets something significant.

It’s time for an update to the game right? Maybe Guantlet can make a cameo with some hidden levels. I hope there is a sequel to this game with more stages and tons of rare stuff.
