Darksiders 3 Walkthrough Part 4: Lust


Finding South End

Now you need to get to the next teleport — South End (Haven location). This can be made in two ways:

  1. Travel to Crossroads, mount the ledge nearby and burn the web down. Get through the hole, switch to Flame form and jump upstairs and kill the enemies. Go down the road and turn right. When you make it to a big town crossroads, you’ll see the pedestal you need.
  2. Travel to West End (this is the very first teleport in the Haven location). Pass through the building, jump onto the pipes and get to the field. There will be the gorilla with which you could have already fought. If you kill it, you’ll be able to burn the orange web on your left and get to the shining object. There are a couple of ledges to the right of the gorilla. You may use any of your forms to jump onto the first ledge. Then switch to Flame form and jump onto the second ledge. After you get to the very top, squeeze yourself through the hole. Kill the enemies while walking downstairs. You can jump into a pit with two gorillas if you want to. On the one hand, it's not that easy to destroy them. On the other hand, there is a lot of loot and a hole to the next cave here. What you need is to go round the pit on the left side of it, kill the enemies and get to the town crossroads. You’ll find South End pedestal to the left of it. There is also a passage to the left of the pedestal. You could have got through it if you’d chosen the first route.

Come at the fork by the pedestal and look up in the direction of the road. On the right, you’ll see the street with a big number of monsters. Kill them all and jump downstairs at the end of your route. Get through the hole and find the human in a secret room.

Darksiders 3 Walkthrough Part 4: Lust-1

Go back, get to the road and look at the lane on your right. You’ll see a hole in the corner of a building. Come inside, take the enemies out and burn the web down. Walk through the passage in the far corner, head for the other side of the street until you see a tall temple.

Darksiders 3 Walkthrough Part 4: Lust-2

Come closer to it in order to encounter one more Deadly Sin — Pride. You’ll get to know that you’ll be able to fight with Pride only after destroying all the other Deadly Sins. You’ve already killed four of them, so there are only two left. There is a new pedestal — South End — to the right of the temple.

Finding The Hulking Carcass

Get inside the temple and enter the yard on your left. There is a cemetery here. Eliminate the enemies including the gorilla and collect some useful objects. You can also climb to the top of the temple using scaffolds and pick up different loot. Come back inside the temple and burn the web down. When it stops burning, the bell will fall down and crush the floor allowing you to go downstairs. There you need to collect loot and kill some more skeletons.

Darksiders 3 Walkthrough Part 4: Lust-3

Follow the only possible route, go through the cave jumping in your Flame Form. Sooner or later, you’ll get to a new part of the cave with a huge mushroom monster. It's not dangerous. You just need to attack the mushroom to make it fly away from you. You should put it under a high ledge which is in front of you. Use the monster’s tentacles to climb to the top of it. Then switch to Flame form and jump onto the ledge.

Darksiders 3 Walkthrough Part 4: Lust-4

Go downstairs to the water cave, kill the crabs, collect loot and go behind a big branch to a whole leading to the next part of the area. You’ll find yourself in the Bonelands. Jump downstairs and you’ll find The Hulking Carcass on your left.

Finding Festering Pool

Darksiders 3 Walkthrough Part 4: Lust-5

Move forward killing the enemies until you find one more mushroom on the right. Hit the monster to move it next to the opposite warehouse. You may find somelot and kill the flying beasts on the first floor. Mount the mushroom and jump onto the top of the warehouse using your Flame form. There you’ll see floating souls. Crush them all, kill the enemies and destroy the boxes upstairs to find an air hole. Crawl through that hole into a new part of the warehouse. Then go downstairs and you’ll find one more pedestal — Festering Pool.

Finding Hangman's Tree

Move forward and you’ll see some monsters fighting with each other. Destroy angels and demons. There is a toxic lake on your left. You mustn't get into it but you can find a huge mushroom next to it. Move the monster to the far ledge by hitting it. You can climb the tentacles or you can jump onto the top of the monster from the container using your Flame form. Next, climb to the ledge using the same form. Destroy all the enemies. You’ll see a waterfall on your right. Go left and enter the building to the right.

Once you eliminate all the enemies, find a warehouse with the mushroom. Move the monster to the opposite side of the room. Go upstairs, jump onto the top of the scaffolds using your Flame form and then to the upper floor. Destroy Angels and get into the room with a hole in the floor. You can jump over it and get the loot using a pipe, but you actually need to move through the breach inside the wall on your right.

Darksiders 3 Walkthrough Part 4: Lust-8

Go downstairs to the back yard with purple stones, a bag full of purple slime and a bug. First, take a look at the lane with containers.

  • Secret! Jump over these containers and find some loot and another human.

Come back and crush the bag full of purple slime using Flame form and double jump. Let the bug quench its thirst and throw it at the stones on the wall. After the explosion, wait for another bug — you’ll need to throw it through the wall and at the stones on your right. This will open a short way back. You need it to move the mushroom to the gap full of water and get to the other side.

You can also destroy the purple stones in the left room: let the bug quench its thirst, pick it up, run to the stone hill, jump onto it, turn round and throw the bug wherever it’s needed. The stones will be destroyed if you act quickly. Don’t waste your time on switching to the aiming mode. Thus, the secret room with Angelic Artifact will be opened.

Darksiders 3 Walkthrough Part 4: Lust-9

Go through the wall chink to get inside the building. Hit the mushroom to make it go outside. Push it right to the water ravine and jump onto it using your Storm form. Switch to Flame form and make a double jump in order to get upstairs.

Darksiders 3 Walkthrough Part 4: Lust-10

Follow the only route leading to angels’ outpost and take them out. After that, Angel Champion will appear. Remember to dodge and counterattack in the battle against him. Angel Champion has just two advantages over any simple angel: it does more damage and has an increased health bar. After winning the fight, you’ll talk to Usiel. Collect the loot and go through the door upstairs (you’ve been talking to Usiel there). Go to a new pedestal — Hangman's Tree. You can spend some souls to get useful objects and level up the character.

Finding The Drowned District

Keep going until you get to the field across the green lake. Kill the enemies and collect loot. There is a new artifact for leveling up your weapon in the far left corner, next to the bridge — Grim (Obscurus).

Darksiders 3 Walkthrough Part 4: Lust-11

You’ve recently got a new weapon — Salvation. You can throw this blade at your opponents to damage them. Besides, the blade can make charged attacks that depend on the current Fury’s form. So, if you switch to Flame form and press and hold the mouse wheel, Salvation will be charged with fire energy. Release the button to throw the blade. You can destroy a web using this technique.

Darksiders 3 Walkthrough Part 4: Lust-12

Come to the right side from the bridge and find a platform. There are some containers wrapped into web hanging on the building crane upwards. Switch to Flame form, press and hold the mouse wheel and release the button to throw Salvation at the web. When it burns down, containers will fall down, and you’ll be able to move on.

Jump upstairs, burn the web down and get inside the warehouse. Kill the enemies and leave the building from the other side. By the way, when you burnt the web, the pipe turned round (it allows you to come back quickly). Get to the other part of the warehouse and destroy the enemies including a weirdo sitting on the throne. You can take a look around the warehouse from this part of the room or go down the road and find a new pedestal — The Drowned District.

Finding Mangled Freeway

Go through the tunnel which is next to the pedestal, jump in the water and swim to the right side. Come out of the water and keep going through the cave. You’ll find some purple stones blocking the way. If you destroy them, you’ll be able to find Luminous Visage (+1 stat point).

Darksiders 3 Walkthrough Part 4: Lust-13

Come inside the building and open the door by pushing the lever down. There is a bug here — you can pick it up and take it to the purple stones through the far entrance. Don’t forget to look at the ceiling to find the bag full of purple slime. Destroy that bag with your Salvation, let the bug eat the slime and then throw it at the stones.

You didn’t actually have to do this. Return to the room with a bugs’ net, climb the ruined staircase next to the exit (on the right) and go outside. You can go right or left. We decided to go left (upwards). Once you climbed up, throw the flamy Salvation at the ceiling web to clear the pipe. Switch to your basic form and use pipes to move forward and get to the ledge. Go forward through the gorge, jump over the cliff using a pipe and open the door by pushing the lever down. You’ll find yourself in a room with purple slime and two blocked passages.

Come back to the lever, pull it and quickly run inside the room while the passage is still opened. You’ll see that one more passage has just opened in the far corner. You’ll get to a small room with the bugs’ net. Pick one of these up and throw it at the slime upwards. Then, throw a well-fed bug at the purple stones sideways (all the other stones are still blocked). Move forward, go upstairs and attack a huge mushroom. Move it to the position from which you’ll be able to climb onto the top platform (to the left of the closed door leading to the lever). When you get to the top, you’ll be able to come back to the lever over the balcony and open the door. But this should be done after you throw the bug at the purple slime since the opened door blocks the way to the bugs’ net. Crush the purple stones blocking the passage and go outside. Hit the mushroom to push it down. Go downstairs and continue to kick the monster moving it to the bridge.

Get onto the bridge and move forward killing the enemies on your way. You’ll see the MANSK ship on the right. Keep going forward and soon you’ll find a new pedestal — Mangled Freeway.

Finding Cargo Ship

Go through the air hole and find the human in the left part of the room. Jump down to the room full of water, kill the enemies and open the door by pushing the lever down. You’ll open a short route to one of the previous pedestals. Go to the right from the lever and you’ll see the monster at the end of the corridor. Climb onto the container with some loot, collect it and jump to the top using your Flame form. Keep going, cling to two pipes using your chain whip and go downstairs. Eliminate all the enemies, climb the containers beside you and push the lever down to go further.

You’ll be attacked by a huge four-eyed monster. Go to the aiming mode (‘’X’’ button by default), take aim at each eye (it should become orange) and press Caps Lock (target acquisition by default) to destroy the enemy. Once you take all four eyes, throw your Salvation by clicking mouse wheel. You’ll hurt all the eyes and be able to go to the right.

Darksiders 3 Walkthrough Part 4: Lust-14

Find the gates with the lever on your right. Push the lever down to make it through the gates. You’ll find another lever at the end of the corridor and open the way back. You need to go past this lever and the corridor to keep going. You also need to walk up to a new pedestal — Cargo Ship.

Fight against Lust

Darksiders 3 Walkthrough Part 4: Lust-15

Move forward and you’ll soon get inside the ship. This is where you’re going to have a battle against Lust. During the first half of the fight, you just need to dodge and counterattack (as you did it with all opponents having a sword). Soon Usiel will appear, and Lust will cloud his mind, so you’ll have to fight with two opponents. Fortunately, you don’t have to kill Usiel after Lust being destroyed. Watch a long video clip. When it finishes playing, you’ll get a new form — Force Hollow. It allows you to crush those purple stones.
