This page of our Darksiders 3 guide contains a walkthrough for the first visit to Nether. At the beginning, Fury will engage in a lot of exploration and battles in areas such as Hatchling Cesspool and Splintered Station.
Nether is a very large location in Darksiders 3 to which you will come back many times. Here you will find uncomfortable opponents and a few puzzles to solve. Watch out for agile and lively opponents, as well as for arthropods hiding under the ceiling.
In this location you will meet new enemies - the first of them are the armored arthropods. They are not a serious threat to you, so you will be able to deal with them quickly.
Another new type of opponent is flying insects, who like to stick to walls or other objects and wait for their prey. You can easily eliminate them with one or two blows, but you have to use them in the air.
Go to the other side of the canals and watch out for eggs. Minor opponents may hatch out of them, who should not be a problem for you, but even a short loss of concentration may cause some loss of your health bar.
On the right side you can see a fragment, but before you collect it, eliminate the opponent on the left side. When you approach the fragment, another opponent will fall on your head.
After defeating your opponents, jump up the platform again and then jump to the other side of the canal.
You will find yourself in a larger room. Go downstairs first and get rid of your enemies. You'll find Lurcher Cluster and one Adamantine fragment.
Return to a higher level of the room and jump to the other side.
Before you enter the next room, pay attention to the arthropod hanging at the top. You'll also find new enemies in the room who have long jumps and fast attacks, so don't be surprised. After breaking all the eggs and objects in this room you should get two Lurcher Clusters and two fragments.
Going further, you will encounter a stone statue with the shape of a snake - smash it to obtain one fragment. Then, go down carefully.
On the shelf to the left, there is a lurking opponent who would have jumped on your back if you had descended right away. Jump on the monster and get rid of him.
Turn towards the subway and get ready to fight another opponent.
To go further, you must use the "help" of the beetle marked in the picture above. Wait until it comes closer to the point under the cocoon and then hit the cocoon. Then move away to a safe distance as the beetle explodes, burning the path deep into the metro station.
On the above screen, you can see a path into the depths of the metro station. Go there.
Before you go down to the level of the metro platform, you must bear in mind that as soon as you are in the middle of the tunnel, the two opponents marked in the picture will jump down and attack you. Try to eliminate previous opponents relatively close to the stairs. After defeating your opponents, you should find a Lurcher Cluster.
Go to the edge of the precipice and turn left. Continue along the precipice.
At the metro station, you will find two larger arthropods and two Lurcher Cluster. After killing enemies and collecting items, you can continue your journey.
Use the walkway to the right.
When you go down a bit lower you will notice a cocoon. Hit the cocoon several times to dispose of the burning substance on the ground.
Another agile opponent stands in front of you. Due to the small space ahead, it is better to surprise the enemy than to start a frontal attack.
Go up a bit higher to jump over your opponent's head. This way you will be able to surprise your opponent and immediately take the initiative in the fight.
After the opponent has been eliminated, enter the narrow corridor shown in the picture above.
Inside you will save another human soul and collect a fragment. For the time being, you will not go through the cobweb.
Return to the previous metro room for a small beetle and take it with you.
Throw a beetle near a burning substance and wait for a moment until he is interested in it.
When the beetle absorbs the substance, pick it up of the ground.
Now you have a few seconds to throw your beetle in the direction of the spider web. Remember to stand at a safe distance to avoid injury. The beetle fires up and unlocks a passage for you.
On the other side of the room, you can see a blue soul. Go there, but keep to the right side of the room.
After collecting the soul turn around. You will see a sizable opponent. The creature is very sturdy and fast attacking so you'll have to react appropriately to his blows. What's more, from time to time he'll be releasing poisonous arthropods that explode with acid. Try to avoid them so that you don't get unnecessary damage.
After defeating an opponent, you can collect an item that will increase your Hero's health regeneration level.
Stay in this room for a moment and feed another beetle with a burning substance. Then move on to the next room.
Here you will find another fragment. You can now return to the previous room, where you just fought with a stronger opponent.
Take your beetle with you and go a bit higher with the burnt-out passage.
Throw your beetle towards the burning substance and wait for both creatures to burn with living fire. With one beetle, burn the red cobweb and immediately grab the other one.
Go a little further and throw the creature into a white cobweb to create a transition to the further part of the location.
Jump to the other side of the precipice by using weapons. Prepare to fight against the other Boss - Wrath..
