Shredder Catch Trial Hit a machine three times with a Shredder. Catch it upon return each time to charge it. When fully charged, hit a machine with it to inflict devastating damage.
  • Full Stripes: 2:00
  • Half Stripes: 3:00
  • Quarter Stripes: 10:00
Stand as far back as possible from the machines so you can carefully judge the arc that your Shredder will return in. Then throw your Shredder, and try to guess its return arc so you can catch it. Repeat this two or three times, until you throw an exploding Shredder. You need to hit machines with two exploding Shredders to complete the trial.
Plasma Blast Trial Use Plasma ammo on a Rollerback to build it up to the Plasma Blast state, which starts a timer. Inflict max damage to the machine to create the most powerful explosion when the timer ends.
  • Full Stripes: 2:00
  • Half Stripes: 3:00
  • Quarter Stripes: 10:00
Look for the Rollerback and inflict Plasma damage as quickly as possible. This will bring up a separate meter which you can charge up with your spear. Then let the counter expire and repeat to complete the trial.
