From where you've just got the Grapple Beam we're now going to make quite a few quick jumps of location, first to Dairon and then on to a new area, Ferenia, where we've got some backstory to get filled in on.

Starting out from the statue room where you picked up the Grapple Beam head right, retracing your steps and using your new ability to pull a grapple beam block out of your way. Head up and use your grapple beam to attach yourself to a previously unreachable magnet pad. Make your way up here and you'll arrive at our first teleporter, which takes us to a new part of Dairon.

Arriving in Dairon use your grapple beam once again to remove a block and jump into the morph ball launcher. From the location that this launcher takes you, as shown in the second map below, you need to head a little north, pull the grapple block that we've marked with our red icon in the map out of your way, and head into the teleporter here, which will take us to Ferenia.

Now that we're in Ferenia, we'll use our grapple beam to move some blocks and swing a little, following the only available path in the area at this point, until we reach an E.M.M.I. zone. Flash Shift through the pressure sensitive door here and then sit back, relax and enjoy the cinematics. Don't relax too much, however, as you've got a boss fight straight after this with a Robot Chozo Soldier. If you need help with this scrap you can check out our boss guide for a helping hand.

Once you've destroyed the Robot Chozo Soldier in battle, we're going to head out of the area through the door on the right and then head up and around to a new teleporter that's gonna take us back to Dairon. There's nothing complicated here, just exit the door, grapple up to the magnet pad, roll into the tunnel and make your way down to the door on the left to find the teleporter.

As soon as we get back to Dairon we're going to enter the network station to our right and have a conversation with the AI, Adam, who'll remind us that we now need to head to Burenia to access the area referred to in the cutscene just before your battle with the Robot Chozo Soldier. So, head off now to the west of the map and jump into the top shuttle to Burenia.

Once you've arrived in Burenia, you need to head straight to the location that we've highlighted with a yellow marker in the map below. It's a quick and easy trip from the shuttle area you're currently at.

Now head up and left to enter the area's map room, the location of which you can see below, unlock some new areas on your in-game map here and then head on out the left and make your way upwards as we have in the series of maps provided.

Keep on heading up and to the right, there's a few grapple points to aim for, and you'll eventually come to a boss door. Parry the creature blocking your path and head on into the next room where you'll fall through the floor and come face to face with Drogyga!

Once you've got done with Drogyga, we are going to head out of the arena and follow the route we've laid out below, use your grapple beam and flash shift to make your way left and then up as shown in our maps to reach a teleporter to a brand new region in the game. Ghavoran awaits!
