Charged Puzzle: How does it work?
The first main mission of the Winter Carnival is the Charged Puzzle. In this mission, players will locate plasma balls scattered through several blocks Each plasma ball has a specific letter or a specific number. You can play this mission solo however we recommend playing with at least 3 players so you can all decide which boss you can go against.
After you locate plasma balls, there are three receptacles that each need 1 ball inserted into them. Once you've inserted a total of three balls, the gate will open and you will run off to the last block. This block will contain either a boss portal if you have successfully completed an image, or regular portal if you messed up.
Shock Shot Stage
A very straightforward area. The hearts on the map represent where Heart plasma balls are. Play through this area and collect all the plasma balls here. Plasma Ball – Heart A can be obtained if you shoot a switch on the wall.
Shoot at this switch and Plasma Ball – Heart A will be yours!
Ice Blast Stage
Ice Blast has a hidden Plasma Ball – Heart B within the narrow corridor. Walk through the false wall to obtain it. Afterwards defeat the enemies and you will teleport to the last room where you can grab Plasma Ball – Rose 4.
Quake Blast Stage
Quake Blast is very straight forward. You'll need two members to open a gate with Zon-drops. Plasma ball – Rose 1 is on the floor once you walk down in it's own little crawl space.
Plasma Ball – Rose 1 Located Here
You and your team can head over to Plasma Ball – Heart C after passing through some traps, then exit this area with the portal in front of you.
Shock Staff Stage
Might be a tad challenging with the Jarba's and traps. Both of the plasma balls are hidden this time. Plasma Ball – Rose 1 can be found in a Zonde Trap. If you destroy this, the rose will show up.
Behind this false wall is a Plasma Ball – Heart D
You'll be teleported into a new room where you'll go up against several Jarba and traps spamming Zonde at you. After you destroy everything you'll see 4 boxes with Zon-drops inside. You will see a very suspicious looking wall near the 4 boxes. Walk through it and you'll obtain Plasma Ball – Heart D.
Flame Blast Stage
A somewhat challenging stage and the plasma balls are hidden yet again. When you first start the stage walk straight in front of you to find a false wall. There will be a Plasma Ball – Rose 2. Head back and fight your way through a room full of fire enemies. If you step on the ground switch in the middle, the fire traps will stop shooting. It's probably best to have a gunner on your team to stay here. The next area has a two person switch. If you step on it you'll get boxes of Zon-drops.
Yes there's a trap all the way up there!
If you shoot it down a Plasma Ball – Rose 3 will appear.
Shoot down the trap to receive your Plasma Ball – Rose 3. Once you defeat every enemy you'll find another plasma ball hidden under the stairs behind you.
Underneath the stairs you can pick up Plasma Ball – Heart B.
Congratulations you've found all the Plasma Balls! Now its time for the fun part, choosing a boss! The guide will describe how you obtain each boss below. You may only choose one boss, so please read only under the section pertaining to that boss.
Choosing A Boss
Bosses are obtained by selecting the appropriate plasma balls and placing them in the appropriate area. There are two Heart Plasma Ball receptacles and one Rose Plasma Ball receptacle.
Beginning from the main entrance of the Charged Puzzle mission, walk forward and turn 180 degrees as you reach the end. The heart receptacle on you left will be the first letter. The middle path holds the rose receptacle, which will be your number. The right receptacle will be the last letter.
If you were facing the entrance, your screen should look like this.
To your left is your first letter. (Heart Receptacle)
In front of you is the number. (Rose Receptacle)
To your right is the last letter. (Heart Receptacle)
Each boss has a specific letter and number combination. Please choose either Zoal Goug, Magas Maggahna, Mother Brain, or Seed Megashi as your boss. Read only the section that pertains to the boss you chose.
