Finally, you have escaped from the tortured wreck of the ISV-Kran. Darkness has fallen now on this mysterious planet as you materialise in a small Nali settlement. Not far off stands the fabled Nali stronghold of the Sunspire... that is where you must go.
You start behind a Nali Hut, facing the bow of the crashed ship wedged in the cliff above. Nearby, a Nali Healing Fruit grows. If you need to collect it, wait until it is fully grown. Go around to the left past the hut and take a look at the village.
A Nali beside this hut will summon you, but his voice will attract the attention of a large Titan who will first attack another Nali in the centre of the village, before shortly coming at you. Using the huts as cover, try to kill the Titan without harming the Nali.
"The minions of our Gods are cast to the ground to do battle. We are put to the test. Our world is weakening, it spews forth terrible creatures. We will pray again tonight. Oh, hear our plea! Send our messiah!"
All this messiah business is starting to get worrying. Who has been ritually cleansing the planet of Skaarj, and why are the Nali being so helpful?
The fourth hut is more awakward. The fire is out and the hut is in darkness, and a Tentacle snipes from the ceiling. Dispose of it - use a Flare to light the area. Raid the hut for its supplies; a can of 12 Eightballs, two boxes of 10 Flak Shells, two Glares and a diary.
"Our Haven, the great Sunspire, given to us by the Gods of the Good Lore, has been corrupted by the Sky Demons. Our once hope is now the foulest of terrors. The Sky Demons are stronger than ever. I had a vision of death, of immense beasts roaming the land."
Before moving on, there is some miscellaneous item collection to attend to. Go to hut 1 and grab the Jump Boots, then use a light to illuminate the ceiling of the hut. There is a hole through to a loft where you can grab a can of 12 Eightballs. Similar lofts in huts 2 and 4 reveal a box of 10 Flak Shells and an ASMD Core.
Attack the Titan. Back off down the terrain firing your most pwerful weapons (bar the Flak Cannon, it'll be more useful later) at the Titan until it is dead. When it dies, although the area may seem clear, you will probably find a third Titan behind the Nali hut, so dispose of that by trapping it behind the hut and firing your weaker weapons (Razorjack, Stinger and Automag) from further down the canyon consistently until it is dead.
The gates are guarded by a SkaarjTrooper with a Razorjack. Attack at long range with ASMD primary fire, dodging its Razor Blades as they fly past. When it collapses, approach the gates and make sure that it is dead. You can collect the Razorjack and Health Pack it has dropped.
"Safe haven for those who seek peace, welcome."
If you look carefully at the gate lock, you will see a key in it. Jump up and head-butt it and it will swing open. Go through to the large valley beyond to exit the level.
