Mechonis Field

Mechonis Field is located within the left leg of the Mechonis and is quite large, despite the map shown in the game. You arrive here from the Fallen Arm and will face nothing but Mechon while exploring this region, meaning you will want to be prepared. Thankfully, you will start finding that the enemies will drop Anti-Mechon weapons. The only tricky area to get to on this map is the Spent Fuel Tank, which is located on B1F. On 1F, you will make a spiral ramp up to 2F, but at the base of the ramp, you can look over and see a pool below you. Jump down, into the pool of water, and you will arrive at the Spent Fuel Tank.

In order to reach the Machina Refuge, when you arrive at the Great Battle Scar, use the vent to launch yourself up to the next section. Instead of going south here, continue north and climb up to the ledge. Follow the path all the way to the end, putting you at the top of a very long slope. Your goal on this slope is to get to the second ledge sticking out, noting that you can hold in the opposite direction of you going down to slow your descent. Once you get to the second ledge, there will be one more little climb to reach the Machina Refuge.
