Getting healed by the Crystal

Returning back to Fran’s shop, players will be given the option to test the green crystal by letting any of their teammates hold it and shooting the person who holds it. Any character will do but if players will choose LOU13, it will not work on robots as the crystal can easily cure wounds instantly.

Shooting your Allies

Anu will suggest harnessing the crystal power by using her phaser. The crew will be required to find the materials listed below for them to harness it using the Tech Goggles:

  • Clear Plastic Bottle – found on the counter
  • Camera – inside the Jukebox
  • Tape – near the cash register

Scanning for Materials

After gathering them, head to the fridge at the back of the shop and players will encounter again the Tediore soldier who is into figurines. He will demand a rematch and once he is defeated, he will reward the crew with a Vasquez Vaultfinder fig.

After the rematch, grab one of the fuses from the box while using the Tech goggles to fix finally the phaser.

Letting him Live or Not

With the device fully working, the crew will go and join a game show to ask for funding for their newly invented device. Upon entering, a guard will appear and a tough decision will occur as to whether let LOU13 kill him or let him live.

  • Killing Him will award players $2500
  • Letting Him Live will earn Octavio respect from Anu

Inside the studio, a contestant, Pierre Pallantine will greet the crew while LOU13 is awaiting outside on standby. Anu will start to feel nervous and Octavio and Fran will attempt to get back at him by hacking his device and sabotaging it.

Choosing Yes or No

As the show begins, Pierre’s device goes out of control and he will be eaten alive by sharks. A tough decision will present itself either letting him die or healing him with the healing ray. If you pick No, 3 questions that should be asked will be skipped and the crew will present their device to the judges.
