The Deluge: Walkthrough

You'll find Bleeding Mark to the north of Scalding Spear, but unfortunately it's been flooded. Speak to the refugees, including Natikka, who will inform you there are other survivors in and around the camp. The first group is on the northern side, on a platform, hiding from Snapmaws. Kill them with fire or shock, then head to the eastern side to rescue more using a crane. You'll need to ignite the Firegleam underwater, then use your Pullcaster from the pillar opposite the crane. Finally climb up and shoot the cable spool to create a ramp for the survivors.

The third group of survivors are on the western side of the camp, in some metal towers. Knock down a tree to create a makeshift bridge, then use a combination of your Pullcaster and platforming to make your way to the survivors. If you're not sure where to climb, use your Focus with R3 to highlight handholds and climbing ledges. Once you've contacted the survivors, exit through a vent using the exact same strategy, and return to Natikka.

You need to find Kentokk in the Gouge. Use your Pullcaster to break down the rubble and access an old mine. Again, it's a case of using your Pullcaster and platforming abilities to get Kentokk out. You'll eventually reach from Firegleam which you can ignite to complete the side quest.
