Lost Planet 3 Walkthrough
Lost Planet 3 introduces Jim Peyton, a rig pilot who leaves Earth to take on a hazardous but lucrative contract on E.D.N. III. Working for Neo-Venus Construction (NEVEC) who are preparing the planet for colonization, Jim joins his fellow pioneers at the Coronis base and begins surveying the uncharted terrain and obtaining samples of the planet’s energy supply – thermal energy. With NEVEC’s existing thermal energy reserve running low, the fate of the Coronis mission depends on the natural source of the energy supply being located. Realizing that this is a great opportunity for a huge payoff and an early ticket home to his family, Jim braves the risk of the treacherous environment.
Lost Planet 3 delivers a mix of both first and third-person action. Acting as a home away from home and offering protection from the ever changing climate, Jim soon discovers the utility rig’s array of tools are just as useful at taking out Akrid as they are at helping him fulfill his contract work. Outside the rig, the action switches to third-person with Jim at the mercy of the elements. He’ll need to battle against hostile enemies with a mix of gun and melee based combat while also surviving the forces of nature. With a number of multiplayer modes and a compelling single player experience, Lost Planet 3 delves deeper into the Lost Planet universe, uncovering hidden truths within the unique and dynamic environment of E.D.N. III.

Welcome to the Lost Planet 3 walkthrough! We’ll be showing you around the game’s frozen areas.
After the opening dialogue, at the start of the game you’ll get saved by Laroche.

• Return to the Pod
Firing Tip: Your Pistol has unlimited ammo at all times. Equip your Pistol by holding down the Y button on Xbox 360 or the Triangle button on PS3.
Enemy Killing Hints: Armored Akrid are only vulnerable on their red glowing areas.
Skilled players should try throwing grenades into an Akrid’s mouth for high damage!
While on-foot, push back nearby Akrid with Melee attacks.

Ammo Tips: Don’t forget to access the Munitions Lockers attached to the outside of your Rig’s feet. Reloading next to a Munitions Locker replenishes all ammo and grenades; Also keep an eye out for ammo footlockers that refill your ammunition and grenades. Entering your Rig automatically replenishes all ammo and grenades. Your Rig provides unlimited regular ammo – specialty ammo, however, needs to be purchased. On that note, Hold down the X button on Xbox 360 or the Square button on PS3 to switch between regular and specialty ammo.
The team needs you to secure the base moorings with your Rig before the heavy storm hits.
