Singularity: Walkthrough

Travel back to The Base and watch the cut-scenes. Then assemble all of your allies where GAIA used to be. You can spend some time to speak with everyone before you depart to the Zenith base, but this is optional. If you saved Regalla in The Wings of the Ten, then she'll be downstairs where Beta was previously. When you're finally ready, head to the rendezvous point, which is south of Fall's Edge.

Once you arrive at the campfire, you'll need to call for your allies. This is the point of no return, so make sure you're prepared. Once you begin this quest — which will take you about 90 minutes — you won't be able to partake in any other open world activities. You'll head through a tunnel and be paired with Erend, where you'll need to deal with Specters. You can use Acid damage to bring them down, or pick up a discarded Ravager weapon in the area. Once you're done, head into the cave and jump over the gap above the water. The flow from here is fairly straightforward: fight Specters and then follow the trail, before repeating again until you reach the Launch Tower. If you saved Regalla, she will help you once you enter.

After all of the cut-scenes go to the elevator console and a fight with Erik will begin. The best way to beat him is to remove is helmet and get headshots, as critical hits deal huge damage. Once you've beaten him, go back to the elevator and head up. It'll stop halfway but you can use your Focus with R3 to highlight a climbing path. You'll need to scale the wall in front of you and navigate your way back through a cove, then use your Pullcaster to drag down a beam to create a crossing to the staircase. Climb up the stairs, doing some platforming when there are any dead ends. Once you reach the summit, head through the door and watch the cut-scene.

The final boss is Specter Prime, which is weak to Acid damage like other Specters. You must scan it with your Focus during this machine to unlock the All Machine Types Scanned Trophy as it doesn't respawn and you can't replay this mission. To beat it, corrode its armour and target gold areas for critical hits. Keep dodging and moving as Specter Prime is very fast. Sometimes it'll stop and pound the ground, so start dodging as this will rupture the surface and damage you from a distance. Be careful when it jumps up in the air as it'll ignite the surrounding area with Fire damage. It'll also stop and charge up a big explosive orb so keep moving. Keep hitting gold plates and the spinning orb on its chest, and ensure it's corroded to do additional damage. When it's dead, the game will end.
