NieR Automata: Chapter 9, Route B - walkthrough NieR Automata guide, tips

NieR Automata: On this page you will find the walkthrough for the 9th chapter of Route B - Bunker

This page of the guide to NieR Automata contains a walkthrough of Chapter 9 which is a part of Route B. The following walkthrough explains e.g. how to complete the new 9S hacking sequence, how to help 2B fighting in the factory, how to properly remote control the machines and how to hack into the main factory system.

Bunker - hacking 9S

Chapter 9, just like Chapter 8, looks completely different when playing as 9S - NieR Automata: Chapter 9, Route B - walkthrough - Route B - NieR Automata Guide

Chapter 9, just like Chapter 8, looks completely different when playing as 9S. Fortunately, in this chapter, you will find much more interactions and unique scenes than in the previous one, which was very short and linear.

You start at the Bunker and you have to Self-Hack 9S. Stop near the subsequent Memory Systems and hold the hacking button - they are to the left and right of the main path. In the next row, do the same with the Visual System. Finally, get to the Server and use the interaction button again.

A path will unlock behind the servers, and you have to follow it - NieR Automata: Chapter 9, Route B - walkthrough - Route B - NieR Automata Guide

A path will unlock behind the servers, and you have to follow it. You will find new interactive servers in the new location, but this time, you will have to play some simple mini-games with obstacle courses where you will need to reach the black balls. Each tested server will add a new entry to the Archives.

Expect a harder mini-game on a server that refuses access - NieR Automata: Chapter 9, Route B - walkthrough - Route B - NieR Automata Guide

Expect a harder mini-game on a server that refuses access. As always, you must first destroy the black enemy objects in order to remove the cover of the black ball and destroy it.

Rescue 2B - remote control of machines

Examining 9S's mind will end soon, and you will return to 9S's room in the bunker - NieR Automata: Chapter 9, Route B - walkthrough - Route B - NieR Automata Guide

Examining 9S's mind will end soon, and you will return to 9S's room in the bunker. Listen to the operator and use the elevator to get to the Terminal. You need to interact with the interactive station in order to provide help to 2B who is fighting in the Abandoned Factory.

Once you're in virtual reality, reach the new white square and hold the hacking button - NieR Automata: Chapter 9, Route B - walkthrough - Route B - NieR Automata Guide

Once you're in virtual reality, reach the new white square and hold the hacking button. Now, you will take remote control of one of the machines from the factory for the first time. Here are the most important elements of this scene:

  1. 9S will not appear in the Factory in person. Instead, you have to use remote control to successfully complete this sequence.
  2. You do not have to stay with the "starting" machine till the very end. You can use hacking on other machines during the scene.
  3. You can focus on getting to your destination, or engage in combat. The range of attacks will depend on the type of machine you are currently operating. It is worth trying to take over the machine with good long-distance attacks, which will eliminate the enemies more easily.
  4. Your final destination will be an inactive elevator in the factory, which you will need to switch on for 2B.

Soon after you start exploring the factory with the robot, you will have the first ever opportunity to switch to a more powerful machine, and you should use it - NieR Automata: Chapter 9, Route B - walkthrough - Route B - NieR Automata Guide

Soon after you start exploring the factory with the robot, you will have the first ever opportunity to switch to a more powerful machine, and you should use it. Each time, you must stand in front of the machine you want to take over, hold down the interaction button, complete the hacking mini-game successfully, and select the Remote Control option from the list (picture 2).

The exploration of the factory itself is linear and you don't have to worry about getting lost - NieR Automata: Chapter 9, Route B - walkthrough - Route B - NieR Automata Guide

The exploration of the factory itself is linear and you don't have to worry about getting lost. You also don't have to join all the fights along the way; you can just keep going.

On the way make sure to watch out for the crushers; avoiding the first ones may be more difficult because of the steam.

In the location with a large group of machines fighting each other, you can simply go to the with a blue lamp above immediately - NieR Automata: Chapter 9, Route B - walkthrough - Route B - NieR Automata Guide

In the location with a large group of machines fighting each other, you can simply go to the with a blue lamp above immediately. In the area with the silo, be careful when jumping to the subsequent damaged balcony fragments.

Later, you will have a few opportunities to control new unique machines, including some flying ones. Again, watch out for the crushers.

Keep going to the left until you reach the place from the picture above - NieR Automata: Chapter 9, Route B - walkthrough - Route B - NieR Automata Guide

Keep going to the left until you reach the place from the picture above. Use hacking here to unlock the elevator for 2B.

Breaking into the factory system

After talking with 2B, you will enter the virtual reality again - NieR Automata: Chapter 9, Route B - walkthrough - Route B - NieR Automata Guide

After talking with 2B, you will enter the virtual reality again. Two main types of activities are available in this sequence. First of all, you must reach the next Gates and engage in fights, where you obviously will have to destroy the black ball. After each won fight, stand on the white square and hold the Triangle to open a new gate for 2B.

Additional notes:

  1. Some enemy objects are protected from the front and thus, you have to try to fly around them and attack them from behind, because that's the only way you can destroy them.
  2. Don't touch the orange blocks, because it will have the same effect as being hit by enemy fire, and you can risk failure as a result.
Additionally, you can optionally explore the side paths and thus reach places with new white squares - NieR Automata: Chapter 9, Route B - walkthrough - Route B - NieR Automata Guide

Additionally, you can optionally explore the side paths and thus reach places with new white squares. By starting to hack in there, you can unlock new Archives entries and at the same time expland your knowledge e.g. about past events.

At the very end, you will take part in an attack on the factory mainframe - NieR Automata: Chapter 9, Route B - walkthrough - Route B - NieR Automata Guide

At the very end, you will take part in an attack on the factory mainframe. It's just a bigger fight, during which you have to remember about:

  1. Destroying the black vertical objects first (example shown in the picture).
  2. Avoiding purple bullets because your own can't destroy them. Try to fly around the arena, so that the enemy doesn't fire at just one part of it. It could make it very difficult for you to maneuver between incoming missiles.
  3. Destroying the orange missiles. Keep firing to get rid of as many of them as possible.
In the next stage of the hacking mini-game, the missiles will come in waves resembling working turbines - NieR Automata: Chapter 9, Route B - walkthrough - Route B - NieR Automata Guide

In the next stage of the hacking mini-game, the missiles will come in waves resembling working turbines. Try to stay between them to avoid colliding with any of the bullets and restarting the whole fight as a result. The ultimate goal is of course to destroy all the black balls located in the middle of the fighting zone.

If you beat the hacking mini-game, you will see a scene showing 2B's victory and the end of this chapter.
