10. Chapter 8 - In the Dark
Thankfully we have another fairly straightforward (though a bit long due to the number of solo and duo battles) chapter this time around with no boss-focused trophies or anything that could cause you to be forced to replay it.
We start off on the train to Tenebrae. There's not much to do here other than to continue forward to the main mission marker and kill the few enemies you encounter.
After reaching the back of the train, you'll quickly be thrown into an area where you must defend the train from attackers. There are 2 types on enemies in this area: running enemies with swords and slow-walking enemies. Make sure you take out the slow enemies first. If they get close enough to the train without getting killed, they'll explode and damage the train. If enough explode near the train, it's an instant Game Over.
After this, there's a minimal amount of QTEs to take out the tanks and head back onto the train.
Next, we're hopping around from ship to ship, taking out enemies and later destroying the ships. Once again, take out the slow enemies in the back of each ship, as they'll jump off and damage the train.
Lastly, we're on top of the train in a tunnel and need to run to the front. Keep running for what feels like an eternity, taking on the multiple battles. The gargoyles are a bit tougher than most enemies we've encountered so far, so make sure you're using Potions as needed.
Finally, after defeating the enemies and reaching the front of the train, we'll be finished with this section.
We've finally made it to Tenebrae. A map can be found below:
At the top of the map, you'll see our final treasure hunt in the game.
The first spot is smack dab in the middle of the area just West of where you started the hunt:
The second spot is back in the larger area where your crew is likely waiting for you to proceed on the opposite side of them (on the Eastern part of the area). You'll see two walking mech units that we've defeated in the past. You can walk between the legs of the Southern one and head behind it. You'll see another indicator to grab the treasure:
The third spot is nearby, on the Western overlook facing the train station:
The final spot is back towards the train we arrived on. Walk on to the train (there's a door facing away from the platform) and head to the door in the very back:
Once you grab this treasure, you'll get a trophy:
Additionally, if you've done all of the other treasure hunts leading up to this point, you'll pop a second trophy:
Before running off too far, we can kick off our Cactuar statue hunt here while we're at it. Leave the train and head to the back of the platform, near the Southwestern-most part of the map.
The first statue is found hiding on top of a box around here:
The second statue is found back near the train overlook where we found the third treasure. Head to the overlook on the opposite side, near the truck where the shop is:
The third and final statue is past the accessory shop in the little alcove behind the large red vehicle:
After you grab the last statue, you'll get your next trophy:
If you've gotten all cactuar statues up to this point in the game, you'll also get another trophy:
That's all there is in Tenebrae, so move forward through the main mission markers.
After the train ride (move to the end of the train to quickly move into the next area), we find ourselves in Magna Fortia:
Unfortunately Ignis is still blind and Prompto is gone, so you and Gladiolus will move through a ton of battles very slowly.
After the first cutscene in the area, you'll pop up in a new spot, allowing you more free-roam. Make your way over to the pathway underneath the train for a great view of Shiva:
This will pop the last non story-based trophy in the chapter:
Continue to make your way through the battles and eventually you'll face Deathclaw. This boss is super simple, the only major attack to watch out for is a large ground attack that'll hit everyone nearby, so once again, make sure you're using your Potions as needed.
After the cutscene with Ardyn and Lunafreya, continue moving to the front of the train and you'll pop the final trophy in this long chapter:
