If you are searching for hints on the hidden Power Cell at the entrance to the spider cave please note that
this hidden powercell counts towards the totals of the Volcanic Crater
Please read on there.
Use your Goggles to shoot the Gnawing Lurkers
Well, you have to hit the lurkers too of course.
Actually you have to hit each of these gnawing lurkers twice before they die and
the hit counts towards the power cell you want to have. At first they drop orbs when they die, the last gnawing lurker drops the power cell.
In the entry cave, where the gnawing lurkers are, there are 3 yellow eco vents at all. To be able to use the yellow Eco you first have to
activate the yellow Eco in Snowy Mountain
Once you are loaded up on Yellow Eco look through your goggles by pressing
and then aim for the gnawing lurkers.
Destroy the Dark Eco Crystals
There are 5 different dark eco crystals hidden in the spider cave and now you
have to find all dark eco crystal locations. To destroy
such a dark eco crystal you have to either shoot it with yellow eco or just
touch it somehow. Sadly you cannot throw Daxter at the dark Eco Crystal. If you touch it you start a countdown and the crystal will explode
afterwards, so you better run away fast.
You can find the dark eco crystals at the following locations:
- Dark Eco-Crystal 1
On the ceiling of the entry cave. You can get to it via the platforms
that hover around up there or you just shoot it just like you shoot the
gnawing lurkers. Aim with your goggles.
- Dark Eco-Crystal 2
On the way from the entry cave to the construction site you have to cross a dark
eco lake. There are 2 spidernets in the lake on which you can jump. On the side of
all this you can find another dark eco crystal.
- Dark Eco-Crystal 3
High up in the entry cave a little to the left of the actual entrance (seen from inside the spider cave) you will
find a way to another dark eco lake. You take the same route when you are searching
for the dark cave with all the glowing crystals. There are 4 platforms floating
on the lake. On the side of the lake is the 3rd Dark Eco-Crystal. You can reach it via
the precursor plattforms or you just shoot it with Yellow Eco to make it explode. Shooting it
is far more easier.
- Dark Eco-Crystal 4
From the lake with the 4 plattforms at the entrance to the dark cave you can see the
scout fly 4
on the right side. And right begind the scout fly is
another dark eco lake. Use a rolling jump to cross it
and then dive deep into the water behind. Down here hides the fourth dark eco crystal.
- Dark Eco-Crystal 5
Again close to the Dark Eco Crystal 4 is Dark Eco Crystal 5. Enter the dark cave, you know,
the cave with the glowing crystals you have to punch and search for the glowing crystal 4. Next to it
is a water pond. Dive into the pond and destroy the 5th dark eco crystal. Right after the pond you will find the
scout fly 5.
Explore the Dark Cave
High up in the entry cave a little to the left of the actual entrance from vulcanic crater you will
find a dark eco lake, some dark eco crystals and the dark cave.
Punch every crystal you find and it will start to glow. Now you can
go on to the next and punch it too.
If you are waiting in front of a elevator platform punch the crystal again, otherwise
you will end up in darkness.
Climb the Giant Robot
On the construction site you have to find a way up to the top of the scaffolding.
Once you are up at the power cell take a look down to the right and you can see the
scout fly 6
And I found a small shortcut so that you don't have to climb up ALL the way:
From the entry to the construction site you take a walk to the right, to the farthest
corner, there is an elevator going up and down. You can jump over to the elevator
with a timed rolljump and save some time. This is useful if you fell off the scaffolding and don't want
to fight through everything again. If you only take this way you might miss some Orbs though.
Launch up to the Poles
Go to the back left corner of the construction site. There you can load up on
blue eco and then jump down into the darkness to the blue platform.
There is also an elevator platform going down here, but this is too slow and
you have no more blue eco left once you are down and can't superjump from the blue platform
on the ground.
So you made the jump and were lucky enough to hang on one of the poles now and swing around it
now. Jump off from the pole at the moment when Jak's feet are on top and grab onto
another pole above. Collect the 3 blue ecos and all the orbs around here and then swing on towards the exit of the
cave. This is the direction to the power cell you are searching for.
Navigate through the Spider Tunnel
So you have to find your way through the spider tunnel in this task.
If you come down the wooden footway don't go towards the construction site but turn
around and get back where you just came from but on the lower ground. You have to
jump over 3 spidernets into a cave, and this is the spidertunnel.
Run through here as fast as you can and grab the power cell at the end and the get out
really quick. Do so by grabbing the blue eco and then jump out via the blue platform.
Climb the Precursor Platforms
Find a way up to the top of the entry cave, this is the first cave you step in and not
the one with the scaffolding. Up there you can see hundreds of platforms that all move
somewhere somehow. And you have to get into the middle of the room via these platforms
In the middle a platform goes up and down all the time. With this platform
you can reach a small solid platform on which the power cell is waiting for you.
From here you can also destroy the first dark eco crystal
