White Hole

The Interloper

The Main Reason to land here is the strange energy reading (from inside the Raptured Core). To find a clue how to get down there use the Gravity Cannon on Ember Twin.

Frozen Nomai Shutte

Sun Station

There are two Ways to get to the Sun Station. The first and obvious one that comes to mind is, to just land on the Platform. It not easy and it will take you some tries but its possible (Also you get the Hotshot Achievements for doing that).

Quantum Moon

Sixth Location

Go to a Planet where you can Access the northern Part of the QM (Quantum Moon), so Dark Bramble or Giant’s Deep. Look around the Solar System until the QM is at e.g. Giant’s Deep and land on the QM. Now search for the QT (Quantum Tower) near the northern part and get it. Next travel with the QM to a Planet where you can’t access the northern area of the QM, e.g. the Hourglass Twins. Since the QT stays at the same Area when it teleports you are now at the northern Area where you normally can’t go and here you can visit the North Pole. Now go there and look for the QT again, if he is not there just turn around a few times. Get it and now teleport through the sixth Location and now you can exit the QT and visit the South Pole. To be hosted it took me a while to figure that out, what a great Game!

Beginner’s Luck

Since I’m there first here to unlock this I’ll add a new Guide, but I’ve got the Tip from Ch1ps (cheers!)

As the Description says you need to Reach the Eye of the universe in one loop. Every time you die you start a new loop – so you need to start a new Game to unlock this.

But since you properly won’t want to lose your Progress for the Archaeologist Achievement do this: Unplug your Network Cabel or go-offline, then go into the Game Settings and delete your Savegame and start a New Game.

Full Walk trough of the Game

… after this Plug the Network Cabel or go Online and start the Game again then you should get a Request if you want to use your local (new) or cloud (old) save – chose the Cloud Save to Recover your Progress.

Microsoft / Xbox One doesn’t like you playing offline, because of that the Achievement won’t unlock after the Credits Screen (where it properly unlocks normally). For me, it popped the next Day (~12 hours) while playing.
