Chamber Area
After the fight, select your party; you can only have three characters at a time. Take PAL and Grumpos. Equip everyone with the Callossum Shieldcells (32/16/16) that Rho conveniently brought with her.
Head out. After another fight, talk to Sergeant Guff to get a quest. Head on to:
Walk out into the city, and take a photo of yourselves at the machine.
At the bottom of the ramp, go right and talk to the guy by the orange poster to get a sample ballot. If you act like a jerk, he'll give you a free room at the inn, too. Then read the poster to learn how to vote on Proposition 2. All the votes are random, so I can't tell you.
There's an Ally of the Council named Crissy walking around, who will tell you how to vote on Proposition 8 if Boots or Grumpos kisses her. Keep an eye out.
Head into town, turn right, and go under a ramp. Pick the lock for Banewave MysTech (White, Good)
Go under the ramp on the left, too; hack the dataport for a Fire Retardant Roundlet.
Continue on to the guy standing on a chest. Yammer him for the answer to Proposition 6; then pop back to the shuttle and swap Grumpos for Rho.
From the Prop 6 guy head left, up the ramp, and talk to the two guys there. One knows the Prop 3 vote, and wants a drink before he'll tell you.
Continue up the ramp and into the next section of town. Head left into the Excellent Choice building. Buy a Quack-Quack Juice at the juice bar. Take the guy his juice and come back.
On the right side of the park near Excellent Choice is a door which Boots can pick. Behind a chair is a Vistin Octogun (Boots, Fair, Ranged). Next to the chair in front of the computer is an Old Ducalion Shieldcell (32/16/32).
Continue on, up the ramp, and talk to Waiia, who tells you how to vote on Prop 5.
Continue into the next park area, and use PAL's world skill on the robot in the corner to learn how to vote on Prop 1.
Time to visit:
 Republic Inn
Head left and talk to Dward, sitting on the couch. He tells you to look up Dass Daskan in room 401. Hack the dataport on the side of the reception desk to learn that Merle Joid is in 201.
Talk to the receptionist and take a room. You wake up in room 402. Get the HealGrease Plus from the bathroom.
Go over to room 401. Grab the HealGrease Complete and the TACO. Have Rho analyze the map on the nightstand.
In room 304 is a woman who encourages you to steal her stuff, a HealGrease Plus and DoubleUp Bracer. Do it! The DoubleUp Bracer is much better than Wristbands of Whacking.
Break into room 201 and read the letter on the bed to learn how to vote on Prop 4. There's a HealGrease Complete in the bathroom closet.
In the stairs just before Floor 1, turn and look at the Bipidri working. Take a photo of the Red Bipidri when it emerges.
Leave the Inn and head up the ramp to the overlook. Have Rho try out the map. Seems to line up. Head for the hallway it indicates, and talk to the guy to get the Prop 7 vote.
You should now have all the info you need to vote at the Votabulator near Excellent Choice. Memorize (or write down) all the info in your F1 journal and vote.
Now that you have a Gold Ally Card, buy anything you want upstairs in Excellent Choice (I recommend three Freezo) and if you're done with Votowne, head back to the council, make another archival save, and go into the council chamber.
 Warship Bay
You're going to be fighting soon, so make sure your shields are set for full strength. I suggest giving Boots the DoubleUp Bracer and Valesta's Bracelet so he can do maximum damage.
At the junction, turn right. After the first fight, grab the HealGrease Complete. Hug the wall and go back behind some boxes to find a Vistin Blader Staffhead (Grumpos, Fair, Melee).
Go back to the junction and down. Head to the back and up a small ramp for a Bag o' Glodents. Go back and down.
Fight more Robodes for a HealGrease Complete. Fight more Robodes for an Old Ducalion Shieldcell (behind a box).
Take the elevator down. Hear the song? Face the window, pull out the camera, and take a picture of the Red Bipidri as it floats by.
Fight more Robodes for a HealGrease Plus. Save and head for the fighter.
 Minigame: The Hive
To reload, shoot the ammo meter in the lower left.
In the first room, take the second exit. This will take you to a large room. Now take the first (red) exit, which takes you to the red shield generator. Now take the second (yellow) exit, which takes you to the yellow shield generator. Now take the first exit, which takes you back to the big room. Now take the third (purple) exit. Now take the first exit, which takes you to the boss. When fighting the boss, shoot at his head; your shots will only hurt when your crosshairs are green.
Your performance will now be rated on a scale of 1-5. Rewards:
- FreezeZone MysTech
- Instabouge Icon
 Verilent Hive
Walk around behind the fighter for Firespire MysTech (Red, Good). After the first fight, pick the chest on the right for NutsWalker MysTech (Yellow, Good). Analyze the control panel to open the door upstairs. Go through and touch the pulsating gems to create MysTech in the room below. Continue on. In the next room, grab the Static Pulse Injector on the floor (Rho, Fair, Melee) and Analyze the console to open the other door in the landing bay.
Head back and through that door, and grab the SlowStrike MysTech (Blue, Good). Continue into the lower room. Seems that the MysTech you dropped before is PoisonSpin (Green, Good).
Go through the door into a room with crystals in the corners. Touch one to take it and get into a fight; you want at least two of each type. With your game patched with the unofficial patches you can press the # button to speed up the game. This way you can easily win every fight in the Hive by just pressing # until you can use plasma wall or staff sweep. It will be an aoe one hit kill if you have the Static Pulse Injector or the Vistin Blader Staffhead.
In this room, get 2 Blue shards and 2 Yellow shards. Take either exit from this room, and get 2 Purple shards. Go through the door left of the purple shard. In the next room, grab the Bane MysTech (White, Fair) and get 2 Green shards. Take the exit left of the green shard.
Talk to the guy by the TimeMinder for a clue. In the next room, grab 2 Red and Cyan shards, and take the exit by the cyan shard. In the next room, go straight and take the first left, which brings you to the smaller console. Continue on back to the large control panel and insert the shards in the appropriate spots.
Head back the same way, but where you turned left before, go the other way. Grab the Hive Moss and continue to an interesting machine. Insert your remaining shards for a PsyChain MysTech (Obsidian, Good).
Head back and left to the room with the blue door. Now get ready for a MysTech fight. Equip Boots with PsyChain, Rho with PoisonSpin, and Grumpos with Firespire. Also turn off everyone's shields so you can use all the NRG for spells. Lead with someone other than Boots, and head in.
 Boss: Hive Queen
If you move your outer characters over to the crystals, you can activate them to prevent her from spawning more Verilents. You'll need to move your middle character (Boots, if he wasn't leading) out from behind the pillar before they can attack the queen. For some reason, the character on the right can't attack the Queen if they move to the crystal and there's a Verilent there, so you might leave them in their original location. The left character doesn't have this problem.
I like to leave everyone in place and have Boots hit the Verilents with PsyPull so that they attack each other (and the Queen!). Rho and Grumpos hit the Queen with PoisonSpin and Fireslag++, wait for the effects to wear off, and hit her again. This way you can win without using any Glodents.
