Darksiders 3 Walkthrough Part 2: Sloth
The complete walkthrough of where to find and how to fight against Sloth, how to deal with enemies, where to find artifacts and humans, and how to access new locations
With Flame Hollow equipped, Fury becomes impervious to extreme heat. She can jump a little higher (press Space, then hold it while you're in the air and wait until Fury jumps higher) and perform an attack with the Flame Hollow by pressing and holding the right mouse button (it allows you to burn a web down).
Move forward, burn the orange web down, jump onto the high ledge (you couldn’t have done it before) and get to the button in the floor. Press the button to get to the other side and find the Vulgrim’s pedestal. Then leave this location (if you want to battle with Sloth) othewise read our Darksiders 3 Walkthrough Part 3: Greed).
We’ve chosen the Forge to talk to Ulthane and level up the weapon. You’ll need Slivers of Adamantine to upgrade the first-level weapon. You must have collected them in the previous locations.
- Secret! After leveling up your weapon, move up using the bridges in the Forge and jump to the other side. Fury can cling onto the branches and other objects only in basic form. When you get to the other side, switch to Flame form to burn down the web. Go further and jump onto the nearby branch swinging in two smaller ones. Head for the building, kill the enemies and jump to the upper floors. There will be a dead end at the very top, and you’ll find one more human.
Move to the Crossroads location, jump down through a hole under the bus and crawl through the ventilation. Follow the same route until you get to a huge pit with Sloth standing on the other side of it. You’ll see a web next to the pit. Burn it down to come inside and find the way upwards.
Go this way, eliminate the enemies and go higher until you face the entrance with purple stones. You can destroy these stones with a purple substance bomb. There is a bag hanging on your right — crush it to make purple substance drop down. There is also a bug's hole on your left. Entice the bug to eat this slime (or just pick the bug and put it next to the slime) and wait until it's full. Then throw it at the stones in order to break them.
Take the only available route, kill the monsters there monsters and jump down. Here you’ll find a couple of '’islands’’ with the monsters. You may kill them all, then jump in the water and go deeper by pressing the ‘’E’’ button (press Space to surface). There are two tunnels underwater: one shines with red light and the other is hardly seen and you can find it near the waterfall. Head for the second tunnel to get Luminous Visage (they can be shattered in your inventory to gain one stat point).
Then swim through the red tunnel to get to the other side. Jump onto a high wall to find Angelic Artifact. Return downstairs and go upwards, down the corridor. Soon you’ll get to the upper part of the same tunnel with the waterfall. Switch to basic form and jump forward by clinging onto the pipes. There will be a lever on the opposite side, on your left. You need to pull it in order to open heavy gates. Go inside and you’ll see a new corridor. Get into it, eliminate all the enemies and burn the web down. Move forward, pull the lever on your right to get to the main hall. Jump onto a ledge to find a new pedestal — Cistern. Come into the next corridor and free one more human.
Finding Tangled Grotto
Get through the hole which is to the left of the pedestal and move on. Destroy the enemies and find a new hole. You’ll spot a huge spider while going through it. When you get outside of it, eliminate the enemies and find another hole next to the eggs. This hole leads to a cave where you’ll have a fight with that spider. Remember to dodge and counterattack. Next, jump onto the train car and squeeze yourself through another hole. You’ll soon reach a dark subway tunnel. You don't have to check the whole area, but you can actually find Demonic Artifact here. Then you need to get under the train at the very beginning of the railway. Jump down, kill the enemy and squeeze yourself through the hole on your left.
There will be two massive luminous bugs in the next room. They will be making small exploding bugs. If you kill them all and take the loot, you’ll be able to find a new artifact to level up your weapon — Unfocused Juggernaut. It increases physical damage which was done with your weapon and reduces Fury’s physical damage.
Come back to that tunnel with the train and go down the railway in the opposite direction. Follow the only possible way (through the train tunnel) until you find a new pedestal — Tangled Grotto.
Keep going; clear the corridors. Here you’ll find two passages with the purple stones but you can’t crush them right now. The alternative route is in the left side of the tunnel with a big staircase.
- Secret! If you go in the opposite direction of it, you’ll see some smashed train cars on your left. Climb these cars, get through a hole and free one more human. There is also Demonic Artifact in this area.
Fight against Sloth
Kill the enemies on your way back to that staircase. Walk up the stairs and you’ll soon get to the third Deadly Sin — Sloth. This will be a two-round battle. During the first round, you should eliminate the crabs which constantly move Sloth's throne. As soon as you kill enough monsters, the throne will be destroyed, and Sloth will have to move on its own. Now you only need to dodge and counterattack. Your opponent will have the same fighting technique. After the fight, you’ll again encounter the Lord of Hollows, who’ll give Fury the Storm Hollow form.
