The Big Bang - Walkthrough of Chapter 1: The Hunt Begins Elex Guide

The Big Bang is a main quest in Elex, and it is related to the great bomb built by the Outlaws. You can help them prepare the detonation. In the latter part of this quest, a plot twist will come, and you will have to fight quite a difficult boss.

How to unlock the quest: Talk to Conrad or Duke Logan in the Dukeís Bunker.

Conrad and the bomb are in the same bunker - The Big Bang - Walkthrough of Chapter 1: The Hunt Begins - Chapter 1: The Hunt Begins - Elex Game Guide
Conrad and the bomb are in the same bunker

You have to reach The Fort, i.e. the Outlaws base. Find the entrance to Dukeís Bunker and meet Conrad there to talk about the bomb preparations. Then talk to Duke Logan to learn that he wants to use it to dominate other factions. You will be able to help the Outlaws develop the bomb.

Go back to Conrad and ask about the remaining parts needed to finish the bomb. He will order you to find three components. Intimidate, ask, or pay 100 Elexit to Conrad to learn where these parts can be found. The order in which you collect them doesnít matter.

Finding the parts for the bomb

Concentric Cross-Armature Coil is the first thing you need - The Big Bang - Walkthrough of Chapter 1: The Hunt Begins - Chapter 1: The Hunt Begins - Elex Game Guide

Concentric Cross-Armature Coil is the first thing you need. You can find that in a military base thatís west of the Sandy Pines motel and northwest from The Fort. Minefields surround the base, and there are pretty strong Rippers inside, but all these hazards can be bypassed. Enter the main building and use the jetpack to fly into the room on the first floor. Take the first component (shown above) (400XP).

Next up: Proprietary Edwards Condenser. To find it, set out north from The Fort. You have to reach a location with a huge, ruined dome Ė this location is also overrun with Rippers. You can fight them or focus on finding the needed part (above) and fleeting (400XP).

Inverse Phase Conductor is the third component - The Big Bang - Walkthrough of Chapter 1: The Hunt Begins - Chapter 1: The Hunt Begins - Elex Game Guide

Inverse Phase Conductor is the third component. You can find this one in a big factory west of The Fort, which can be conveniently reached by heading east from Goliet. While exploring the factory, watch out for the Rippers and for big precipices (jet pack will come in handy). You have to enter the chamber shown above Ė the radiation there is pretty strong. Take on some countermeasures beforehand and exit before the radiation gets you (400XP).

After collecting all parts, go back to Conrad and give them to him to receive 2000XP. Go back to Duke and tell him that the bomb is finished.

Finding Konrad

After collecting all three parts, go back to Konrad to give them to him - The Big Bang - Walkthrough of Chapter 1: The Hunt Begins - Chapter 1: The Hunt Begins - Elex Game Guide

After collecting all three parts, go back to Konrad to give them to him. Youíll get 2000XP. Go back to Duke and tell him the bombís ready.

Leave the fort and go north, to the Ruins of the Dome. Watch out, for there may be some strong beasts in the base (such as Moloch or Slime Drakon). The ultimate destination is the ruined dome you can see above (400XP). Before jumping down into the arena, save the game and make sure you have some good ranged weapons (or magic) Ė laser and plasma guns will be perfect. After stepping into the dome, a cut scene will commence, where you will learn that Konrad didnít indeed construct the bomb Ė it actually was The Big Bang. You have to defeat the giant machine by yourself (any companion you might have will be sent back).

Boss fight Ė The Big Bang

When the fight begins, donít try to attack the huge machine (itís surrounded with a force field) - The Big Bang - Walkthrough of Chapter 1: The Hunt Begins - Chapter 1: The Hunt Begins - Elex Game Guide

When the fight begins, donít try to attack the huge machine (itís surrounded with a force field). Use the environment for cover from its energy attacks and watch out for the powerful slam into the ground it makes (step aside).

If you donít happen to have good ranged weapons, then you might use the Laser Blaster LSR-T Ė find it and see if youíre able to use it.

Wait for the moments, when the smaller machine (The Big Bang Workshop) flies out of the levitating robot. It will always head towards the elex deposits to extract some of it. Attack it while itís still in the air (picture 1) or engage melee attacks when it gets lower (pic. 2). Try to constantly move Ė the big machine will drop some explosives.

After destroying the Big Bang Workshop (250XP) you will get to the second stage of the fight. In this stage, the levitating robot will be using a flamethrower. If you donít have elements of armor and the skills that increase fire resilience then donít let the boss close in on you. Use any distance attacks to weaken the boss. You will get 2500XP for defeating The Big Bang.

Konrad is hiding with the Clerics Ė in The Hort. Find him in the factory. You can talk to him first. If you want to fulfill Dukeís order, attack Konrad and kill him (1100XP). Go back to Duke and claim the bounty Ė 3000 Elexit. If you care about your reputation with the Clerics then leave Konrad alone.
