This is a guide for Chapter 3 of Xenoblade Chronicles 3, covering the exploration of Colony Lambda in the Pentelas Region.
Triumph against Consul J and the skies will finally clear once more. You’ll officially arrive in the Great Cotte Falls, with your next destination being Colony Lambda.
At this point, you can explore a tiny bit of the Great Cotte Falls, but you’ll be unable to proceed along the slope towards the south-west. To advance the story, head into Colony Lambda, just past the collapsed Ferronis, where there’s a gap in the waterfalls. Inside the colony, it seems everyone is safe and sound for the most part.
You’ll now control Taion by himself. Head east, then north towards the commander’s quarters at Clearwater Shelf. After the cutscenes, Noah and Mio have one last job for today. Leave the colony and return to the area where you fought Consul J, west from the toppled Ferronis. There will be a whole slew of cutscenes, then this chapter will come to a close.

Containers in Colony Lambda
|Container #||Map Marker||Location||Items|
|1||Map Marker||Inside the container at the back of the colony.||Nopon Coin (Silver) x2, 1608 G.|
|2||Map Marker||Drop into the water, and follow it all the way north.||Nopon Coin (Silver) x 5, 2240 G.|
|3||Map Marker||In-between the shipping containers, and the wall in the east side of the colony.||Nopon Coin (Silver) x2, 1820 G|
|4||Map Marker||Behind the Commander’s tent at the back of the colony.||Gemstone x3, Trusty Hunter’s Tool, 2040 G|
As soon as you enter the Colony, head all the way north until you hit the wall. Turn west and interact with the shipping container to unlock it. Here, you’ll find Container (1).
From container 1, head east and drop into the water. Turn to your north to find Container (2).
Now head to the east side of the colony by going over the rocky bridge, and continue east until you reach the medical beds, and shipping containers. Go around them while you continue east, and when you get to the wall, turn north to find Container (3) hidden behind the shipping containers.
Finally, go back towards the rocky bridge, but don’t go across. Instead, turn to your north, and head behind the Commander’s tent. You’ll find Container (4) hidden behind it.
