Mega Man XZ: The Maverick Hunters

Stage Guides

You'll now be using the giant space elevator to reach the moon for the final showdown with Sigma. As such, this entire stage will take place on a giant platform as it travels skyward within the elevator. Throughout the entire trip you'll be bombarded by various enemies so be prepared. Zero's D Glaive or the Σ Blade coupled with the Rasetsusen technique works wonders and turns this trek into a walk in the park. The nature of enemies dropping down from directly above also gives Axl a great advantage.

You'll start out at the base of the elevator and quickly begin rising. This first section will deal out a few diving bees from above which shouldn't give you too much trouble. Eventually you'll stop at a junction with two doors on either side of the elevator. Reploids will come bounding out so be ready to engage them. Clear them all out and you'll continue ascending. Soon you'll reach another junction, this time with shielded Reploids on the prowl. Break through their shields any way you want, but keep in mind that Zero's T Breaker and the Σ Blade break the shields instantly.

Further up you'll encounter flying Reploids, take them out before they attack. Eventually twin blue Bulbrites extending electric fields will appear, quickly take them down before you strike their electric fields. The following junction above throws Reploids with swords at you, take thme out from a distance to avoid damage. More bees and a single twin blue Bulbrite await above before you reach the next junction. This time a combination of shielded and sword-wielding Reploids appear, so quickly take down the shielded ones before attacking the sword-Reploids.

Up above you'll begin ascending a blue-toned area of the elevator where a giant ring descends and rotates around the lift (for looks only). Take out the blue Bulbrites before their electric fields touch you, then watch out for bomb-toting Bulbrites further up. Try to take them out with Zero or Axl just as they appear and don't stand below them. The next junction will throw grenade-launching Reploids at you, but they should be incredibly easy to destroy.

Beyond this junction another ring descends above to spin around the lift before flying Reploids swoop down. Take them out before they throw small bombs, and watch out for more bees. The next junction will spew out shielded Reploids capable of blocking most attacks, use the Juuhazan to easily destroy them. Upon moving onward you'll find yourself in outer space now, before more bomb-toting Bulbrites and bees appear.

Take them out and watch out for blue Bulbrites further up. Missile-launcher wielding Reploids await you at the next junction, just make sure they don't get any shots off. Watch out for the electric field-generating Reploid above, if you're caught call in your reserve character to break free. The final junction above will throw a multitude of Reploids at you, with grenade and missile launcher wielding ones along with the shielded variety. Hold out against the onslaught and take down every foe to finally ascend to the apex of the elevator. Once at the top you'll have a showdown with this stage's boss, Vile.
