|12||After opening the door for your team, approach the next locked door and pick it.|
|13||Kaito and Higashi will stay behind to deal with the RK members.|
|14||In the next area, move through the opening ahead. Then, climb up the pipes on the pillar. Head right to the steel shelf and go up.|

|19||Active Search: Look for a Way to Proceed
Discover an alternate entry route
– Examine: The gap between the two orange drums.
– Examine: The air-conditioning unit on the right.
|20||Go up the A/C unit and climb up to the pipe (do this quickly to avoid running out of grip). Move along to the left and jump across the next ledge where the drums are stacked on.|
|21||Keep going left until you are directly below the gap between the two orange drums.|
|22||Climb up to the gap between the two orange drums and go left to the next area.|
|23||The way down below is blocked by some railing. Move to the right to find a narrow ledge and shimmy across. Then, climb up the ledges with the stacked drums. Cross narrow steel beam to the other side by hanging and going left (do this quickly as well).|
|24||Drop down onto the stack of colored tiles. Then, walk near the wooden pallet wall and do a wall run to go across to the steel platform ahead.|

|32||Go after Soma. Pick up Staminan X along the way.|
|33||Use the save point before proceeding to the final boss battles.|
|34||Defeat Soma. He walks very slowly to lull you into taking it easy, though he will still be crafty with his attacks. Pummel him with attacks and EX actions to lower his health. Be ready to dodge when he does slash with his blade or when he winds up and does his forward rush (the latter has a really big wind up and poor tracking and can also be parried with good timing). Further in the fight, he will continue to walk slowly before quickly coming at you with either his grab or a close range attack. Bait out his quick step grab or slash and dodge before retaliating. Once you lower Soma’s health to about 1/4 of his last HP bar, a QTE will commence. Be ready to hit the buttons to finish him off.|
|35||Defeat Kuwana. As with other encounters against him, he likes to counter after he has been hit twice or once he blocks your attack. If you are very used to parrying at this point then he should be very easy to deal with. His charged forward shoulder attack can easily be timed as well. As with Soma, a QTE will trigger when you lower Kuwana’s health to about 1/4. Input the commands to end the battle.|
|36||Watch the ending.|
