N: Equipment/Skills/Hotkey config
I recommend you to ignore enemies and proceed using sprint when you can, in certain areas wasting health or energy can be very dangerous later in game.
Azul is quite vulnerable until she learns Scud from Seki.
Official walkthrough for War of Existence
This guide contains help for the path to the main story arc only, doesn't include alterante endings or the ending itself.
Part 0 - Sabrina:
Respond her questions as you feel better, some questions in this game may change Azul's performance as result of her personality. (Only Azul is affected by personality branches)
Part 1 - Laboratory:
You will find a knife, you can equip it pressing "N".
In the second room, there is a dead guard, he holds a key needed to open the door.
Enemies in the first part of the game move slowly, feel free to move fast to avoid them.
Part 2 - South Peak Capital City:
After the cutscenes you will you will need to find the infirmary, before going interact with the radio, it is a save spot, two blocks to the South, ignore the monsters and go in.
In the infirmary there is another save spot and a painkiller(HP heal) on the table, use the ladder to go to the basement, you will find "Doc", she will take you to a dead end, monsters will corner you, kill them all or try to pass through them.
Once you did that, talk to Doc once more, she's a critical save spot.
Mid-Boss: <Cyborg Axer> Lino Gaunter
Lino is wounded, and the first mid-boss in the game, so it's easy to temporarily take her down, by simply fighting her as any other enemy, however, you must do it fast, her damage over time skill is very strong and can drain your health very fast if you don't act, she also slows your movement down.
VIDEO: How to pass Lino: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tf8LhNfTMhU
After you defeated Lino, move to the North, there will be a cutscene a save spot will pop up.
Boss: <BBQ Man> BB
Don't even try to kill him, unlike Lino, he's in good shape, and his fire blast can damage you for 500 HP in one hit, run to the last door to your right.
Once inside, keep moving, run to the next door, he will enter and try to kill you.
In the next room, you will find another radio, it is a save spot, keep moving, you will find two monsters, defeat them and talk to the dying man, he is Yumi's father. After that you will find Yumi, and a new save spot.
After that, a cutscene will appear, and you will appear outside, with Doc and Yumi, talk to Doc to recover HP, and talk to Yumi for a critical save spot.
Boss: <Unknown Elite Senior>
This is different to the previous bosses, you can't defeat him, and you can't run away, you must buy some time until the cutscene appears, use SHIFT to move fast, some of the projectiles have knockback, his special attack is a ranged Ice blast, which can kill you in two hits.

After a cutscene you will appear in the training place.
Part 3 - Training place.
You appear in a room with a save spot, use it and go down with Sabrina and the others.
Once you go outside, the group will try to find Doc, there is no danger, go to the East and Sabrina will find you, and you will see another cutscene.
Here you will have to choose between three options, your answer will determine Azul's personality branch, which changes her stats, and also, Seki will teach Azul the principle of Scud, now you will be able to defend yourself better from bosses.
The first choice will give you "Undomitable Spirit" class, much higher HP but lower offensive stats and less energy.
The second choice will give you "Freedom Seeker" class, higher defensive stats, but less HP and offensive stats.
The third choice will give you "Eyes of instinct" class, much higher offensive stats and energy, but lower HP and defense.
After this you will be outside, talk to Yumi for a save spot.
Remember to equip new skills by pressing "N".
You must now go to the radio station, you will find a few common enemies, you can eliminate them or avoid them.
If you defeat the mid boss, you will get an Elviorian Energy Core, which heals you over time(1% HP per tic).
Remember some doors and obstacles can be destroyed.
Once you entered the radio station you will get two choices, choose the second one, then take the door on your right, you will find a save spot.
Go upstairs, the door by the end of the corridor is blocked by a dangerous gas leak, take the corridor on the bottom right, there are three doors, ignore them, keep moving to your right until you find a small room with a few enemies, there is a dead man on the floor, interact with him to find a key.
Video: "Radio station" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOvzpZy3188
Use the key to open the door on the previous room, activate the switch, you will hear an explosion, go back, and the gas leak will be gone, you can just pass then.
Part 4 - Azul's mind
After the cutscenes, you will be in Azul's dream, for the moment there is no danger, you will find the Saint Elite Shrine, where Sabrina is waiting for you.
After the cutscene you will be controlling Sabrina for the first time.
Remember to equip new skills by pressing "N".
Sabrina uses a variety of ranged homing attacks, use them to eliminate the enemies ahead.
Remember to activate the switch in the first room, so you can use the door.
Once in the next corridor, take the third door, a cutscene will appear. You will be in Azul's memory of the first room in the laboratory, kill the three enemies in the next room and check the computer on your left.
Kill the enemies ahead, and you will be in a big hall, a critical save spot will appear.
Three Saint Elite members will attack you, fighting is pointless and your chances of winning are very low, proceed to the room where they came from.
VIDEO: How to proceed against the Saint Elite ambush: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v1ICw6ynyjY
After that you will appear in a similar room, they are still following you, quickly take the door on your right.
After that, once more you will appear in a similar room, just use the door on your left(you just came from there, I know.)
Keep running, a bunch of enemies will try to stop you, kill or avoid them and force your way to the bottom, BB will try to ambush you by the end of the corridor.
After the cutscenes Azul will wake up and you will be playing as her again.
Go to the East, you will find Sabrina and Seki, to proceed choose the first option.
Next, get out of the base, and move to the West.
You will find a building where a group of criminals have hostages, if you try to negotiate, they will kill a girl, exterminate them all.
Remember some doors and obstacles can be destroyed.
After the incident is resolved you will be in the base again, talk to Samanta for a save spot.
Depending on your actions in this event, Azul's mindset may change.
Part 5 - Sabrina's discovery, the Divine Element.
Go North, you will find Roja, after the cutscene you will be playing as Sabrina.
Take the door at the end of the corridor, then go to the room on your left, you will find a cadet, Clara, she will give you two choices, take the first one and she will give you the key codes requires to proceed to the next area.
Go to the East and you will find the corridor where the codes are required, once you passed, you'll be in the Educational Section, go to the bottom and you will see a cutscene.
After that, you will be under Erste's illusion attack, a save spot will pop up, as you advance, a few monsters will appear, they are strong in groups, you will find two doors, touch the door on top, it will seem to be closed, but then, the door at the bottom will be open, if you try to take this door first, you will be swarmed by monsters.
This part is simple, go to the bottom and interact with the char, it's just an ordinary chair though, then go back and you will find Laguna.
The illusion will be over and Sabrina will appear in front of the three higher ranks, Seki and Azul will rush in to rescue her.
After the cutscene you will play as Azul, with Sabrina in your party, remember you can configure your formation pressing "M", and hotkey "K"(default) will allow your second party member to attack automatically.
Take the room at bottom right. Azul and Sabrina will be in a room with a save spot.
Azul lost her ribbon... What a tragedy...
Continue walking, go to the room at the bottom of the corridor, kill the mid-boss and interact with the computer, now the other door will be open, you will find Seki.
After the cutscene, interact with Sabrina for a save spot.
After that you will appear at the base, go to your room and interact with the bed to sleep.
Then you will be playing as Sabrina, go to North and enter the first room in the infirmary.
After the cutscene you will be playing as Azul in her dream, there, Raid will reveal the things Azul forgot.
Part 6 - Battle of the Saint Elite Tower
Azul wakes up and you will be in the infirmary. As result of the interaction with Raid, Azul gained two new skills, remember to equip skills with "N".
Once you left the base interact with Doc for a save spot, go to the West, Roja will intercept you.
Mid-Boss <Cyborg Fencer> Roja Gaunter
You can fight her or run away, it's not a very serious fight, however, one of her attacks cuts your HP by more than a 50% and uses a variety of weapons so you may just want to take her out fast.
After the cutscene talk to Seki and choose the third option to proceed, you will be in the building now, go to your right.
Proceed to the next room, you will be again under Erste's illusion attack, the exit is by the upper left side of the map.
Then you will find Doc and a save spot. Proceed to the next room, pass the corridor and you will find Roja again.
Boss <Cyborg Fencer> Roja Gaunter
This time Roja will go all out, be careful with her damage over time skill and HP cut trick, however, she's still weak among the Saint Elite ranks, it's a fast fight between two characters with even skills.
VIDEO: Cyborg Fencer Roja https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIkQXCGzy14
After beating Roja you just need to destroy the door to proceed with the next area. Keep walking and you will find a save spot.
After the cutscene you will be playing as Sabrina, this part has no science, just proceed killing enemies when you need.
When you reached certain point you will be outside, playing as Samanta.
Remember to equip skills pressing "N"
Unlike Sabrina and Azul, Samanta is a mere human, and her ammo is limited, don't waste it.
Once you moved to the second screen, take the first door, you will be in a corridor, choose the second option, and check the storage, go out and continue walking.
you will be attacked by a monster, you can kill it with your pistol, then you will find a Saint Elite officer, place a C4 near him using your hotkey bar, take some distance and wait for the explosion, once he's dead you can proceed.
Climb the ladder and enter the next building, continue walking and a critical save spot will pop up, an horde of monsters is coming, use the fence to separate yourself from the mobs, then use C4 on the fence, the explosion will destroy all or most enemies.
After that you will be outside, and a mid boss will charge at you, use a Scud Bullet from your .577 immediately. DON'T MISS, you most likely will have once chance.
Use C4 on the heavy door to pass, you will be inside the Saint Elite building, and you will find Clara.
Video about Samanta's weapons: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GuJpf7pVG-Y
Choose the first option she gives you, the second will lead to an early branch for a bad ending.
Talk to Clara again for a critical save spot.
After that, you will be attacked by a melee type Saint Elite, a Scud Bullet should be enough, destroy the next door using C4.
Behind that door, in straight line, there is a high caliber turret, it can anihilate you very fast.
You need to be out of the range, you need to shoot a Scud Bullet from this distance:
There are two Saint Elite ranger types in the next room, try to avoid them, or use C4 on them. Proceed to the next room.
Boss Saint Elite Kraken.
Even if Kraken is a high rank, he's weak compared to the average high rank(For example compared to Laguna), however he's very strong in front of a normal human like Sam.
He will use mostly melee attacks, if you try to escape to the corridor on your right, you will win a few seconds, but you will be cornered in a dead end.
You can either try and beat him, or avoid him and focus on destroying the obstacles blocking the exit using C4 or Scud Bullets.
VIDEO: How to quickly avoid Kraken: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2tJ6rJS6dOY
After the cutscene, you will be playing as Sabrina. A critical save spot will pop up.
Avoid the ranger enemies and you will find Laguna.
Boss <Saint Elite Knight> Laguna
Laguna is a strong and very durable enemy, relies on melee attacks and raw damage to fight, Sabrina can't take much damage, keep your distance, heal and check your timing for his enhaced attack.
After beating Laguna destroy the obstacle and proceed to the next room, another critical save spot will pop up, and Laguna will appear once more.
This part will require you to move and think fast, as Laguna warps between movements, don't attack him just keep moving. By the end of the corridor, take this door:
On the next corridor, the second door contains a critical save spot.
By the end of the corridor, you will be ambushed by 12 enemies, avoid them, and take the door behind them.
After the cutscene, Sabrina won't be able to use skills for a short period of time, just avoid all the enemies carefully. Don't let them corner you, remember to use items if you need.
After the cutscene, you will find Doc, choose the first option. The computer in the same room has a save spot, Sabrina becomes quite overpowered for a short time, remember to equip your new skills pressing "N".
Exterminate the enemies to pass, you will find Anzen.
Boss <Saint Elite Commander> Anzen
Anzen is a first class combatant, his invisible barrier deal damage, knockback and block your telekinetic attacks, use Psychic Crusader to destroy his invisible barriers and keep your HP high, he'll be in advantage if you get surrounded by them.
After that, destroy the obstacles and proceed with the next area, there is a turret behind the first obstacle.
Part 7 - Paradox of Existence
After the cutscene, you will play as Azul in her subconscious.
As soon as Azul appears, you will find a critical save spot. Raid awaits in the next room.
Boss <Subject 99> Raid
Raid is a formidable and highly offensive opponent, she posses ferocious melee attacks with considerable knockback, stun, and dangerous Scud Blasts, just try to avoid her attacks until the time runs out.
If you walk here a bit more, she'll ambush you again, just go back to the door.
After the cutscene, you will be playing as Raid in her memories.
In the next room, you will be attacked by 4 Saint Elite bosses, nothing to worry about, you can either get a key from the shelves to proceed to the next area, or one sidedly ravage them all, and get a key from the shelves to proceed to the next area.
After that, Azul gains Raid powers, and the final arc starts.
Part 8 - War of Existence
Considering this is the final arc, I will stop the guide here, the story may divide in two parts, both are equally important to understand Erste's motivations.
Azul is now at her full potential, and there are only two bosses ahead, you will face them depending on your choices:
Boss <Terror God> Erste
Boss <Psychic Crusader> Condemned Sabrina
