Ubisoft’s second piece of DLC for Far Cry 5 has released for the Xbox One, PS4, and PC called Lost On Mars. The DLC is surprisingly long, with the main missions clocking in at a lengthy four hours; that’s the amount of actual gameplay present in Wolfenstein 2: The New Colossus. Anyway, there are some Far Cry 5: Lost on Mars gameplay walkthrough guides available for those of you looking to get a little help in completing the new DLC.
YouTuber Game Riot has a multi-video playlist available for the Far Cry 5: Lost on Mars DLC, which you can check out below.
The Lost on Mars DLC follows close on the heels behind Hours of Darkness.
After you start a new game there’s a cinematic that plays, showcasing how Nick gets sucked up by a tractor beam by Hurk and ends up in a spaceship.
Hurk will give you a quest to get some purple energy cores in the ship and place them in the terminal. It’s pretty easy, just follow the nav markers and pick up the crystals. Bring them back to the console where Hurk’s disembodied head is located and place them in the consoles.
Next, head to the green glowing barrels and press Square on the DualShock on the barrels to take the green goop and then go over to the 3D printing machine to print new guns using the toxic-colored alien jizz.
After you interact with the 3D printer, go grab Hurk’s head and then head outside.
Once you head outside, you’ll have to shoot some space crawlers that burrow from out of the ground.
The good part is that when you kill the aliens you can loot their bodies of space jizz.
Take the goop as currency, which you can then use to print new guns. So basically kill the space crabs, and then take their jizz, which is actually called Hemoleum.
The next task is to activate the control antenna so you can increase the visibility on your map.
To climb up the tower you need to jump up on the rock, and then jump up onto the white spiral platforms and keep scaling up to the top of the tower until you reach the glowing light and activate it so you can increase the visibility and remove the fog of war.
Once you activate the antenna, you then need to scale downward and proceed to the next location.
The overreaching goal of the game is to find all of Hurk’s body parts. So your first task is to collect Hurk’s hand, which is just in front of the door to your next mission.
Take Hurk’s hand by picking it up by pressing Square on the DualShock or ‘X’ on the Xbox One controller.
You’ll also find Hurk’s pelvic area after you dodge the brown sand and hop across the platforms to reach the rock with Hurk’s pelvis.
If you step onto the sand you’ll end up attracting arachnids, which will attack you on sight.
Use the rocky area to traverse in order to avoid attracting enemies when stepping on the sand. If the arachnids do appear, aim for the red soft spot on the top of their head to kill them instantly, similar to the weak spots for the aliens in Starship Troopers.
You’ll also need to grab the gravity belt, which will allow you to float in the air with a multi-jump. Hold down ‘X’ on the DualShock to jump up with the gravity belt, which is ‘A’ on the Xbox One controller. Use Circle on the DualShock to hover or ‘B’ on the Xbox controller.
With the gravity belt, you’ll no longer take fall damage when falling from large heights. It does have a limited amount of energy, so you won’t be able to hover forever.
Proceed towards the Transference Center but you won’t be able to activate the power generator from the front entrance. Use the outside platforms to jump up on top of the platforms and jump inside of the Transference Center from the top opening.
Activating The Transference Center
Reactivate the Transference machine and then fly over to the other side and defeat the boss. Once the boss is defeated, activate the machine so that Hurk can turn into the Brobot.
The Brobot doesn’t die but it can sustain enough damage to briefly malfunction. You’ll need to go over to Brobot and hold down Square on the DualShock or ‘X’ on the Xbox controller to restore Brobot’s functionality.
Head outside, and fast-travel back to the control center before you proceed any further because the aliens get really hard and the pistol is really weak.
If you have 450 alien space jizz, you’ll be able to dump that into Anne and she’ll reward you with a rifle.
Your next target is to power up the next antenna. You’ll acquire electric grenades and the invisibility ability.
Use Triangle on the DualShock or ‘Y’ on the Xbox controller to use the invisibility.
The next antenna is guarded by electric security drones. You’ll need to tactically use the gravity belt to platform your way up to each platform.
You can reach some of the platforms by going up vertically to the platforms above you.
Midnight Mountains Mine Antenna
Reach the control panel at the top of the antenna and proceed to activate it. This will add all of Hurk’s missing body parts to your main map.
You’ll be able to collect the body parts so you can restore Hurk to his human form.
You’ll also unlock a new weapon and item.
On your way to the next quest mission, there’s a platform with a new item on it: the Cock Blocker.
You can use the Cock Blocker to block any and all incoming damage. You can activate the Cock Blocker just the same as you can the invisibility shield.
You’ll need the gear to kill the alien queen.
In order to draw out the queen you’ll need to kill the alien eggs. When you reach the mountains mine you’ll need to kill enough of the arachnids to fill up the meter.
Queenie Boss Fight
When Queenie emerges from the cave, she’ll battle you using some long range projectiles. She fires three poisonous phlegm bolts at you.
After you get a third of her life down, she’ll burrow under the ground again. Kill more arachnids to draw the queen out and then keep attacking the queen.
Once you kill the queen, you’ll start the queen killing challenge, where there are 14 other queens you’ll need to destroy to complete the quest.
Killing a queen also enables you to access the queen’s heart. The heart can be used to throw down on the ground and it will cause the arachnids to go into a frenzy and kill each other. Use the queen hearts sparingly, though.
Once you kill the queen the map will open up some more and you’ll have more missions to complete.
Desolate Dunes Antenna
Head south to the Desolate Dunes Antenna. It’s located across the desert. There’s no easy way to the antenna, and you will have to traverse the desert. The best tactic is probably to move as quickly as possible and then jetpack up the platform.
There are small little aliens that explode upon impact.
You’ll likely want to kill them quickly and stay on the move because the explosive arachnids just keep spawning.
Once you get to the top of the tower and restore it, it will open more energy core locations.
When you complete the Desolate Dunes Antenna, you’ll unlock a new suit ability: Space Wings.
You’ll need 500 to buy the upgrade. When you jump from large heights you can activate the Space Wings to glide.
YouTuber RabidRetrospectGames has a video up covering the rest of the adventure that you can check out below.
Robot Repair Center
If you head to the north there’s a robot repair station that you can visit that will repair the station. You’ll have to protect the robots as they repair the station. Keep the aliens off of the robots until they repair the station, and then jet pack up to the top to activate the Robot Repair Center.
After you activate the next tower, you’ll unlock additional bandages.
You’ll also unlock some additional weapons after you kill another queen and clear out the Desolate Dunes Mining Station. You’ll need an energy core before you can power up the station, so make sure you grab that first before you head inside the station.
