“The Last Chapter” introduces three new stages to the main game as well as a secret bonus stage. It also adds thirteen new challenges, many of which unlock additional specials to enhance your gameplay and give you extra advantages.
Step 1: Complete stages 8-10 while earning secret keys. Try to earn at least four keys per level is possible to unlock the secret stage and its associated challenges. Once you defeat the final boss at the end of stage 10, you will earn The Last Chapter.
Step 2: Complete challenges. Seven of the challenges will directly earn you a trophy. They are Speed Gunner, Stage Keys, Speed Collector, Rank Master, Kill Collector, Score Collector and Hellfire The other six unlock special abilities. You will need a total of seven specials for the King of Unlockables trophy. Depending on how many specials you unlocked from the game’s original challenges, you will have to complete anywhere from four to all six of these challenges.
Step 3: Misc. trophies and cleanup. If you haven’t already, you will need to collect all fifteen secret keys from stages 8, 9 and 10 (five per stage). Note that they do not all have to be collected in the same run. Collecting all of the keys will unlock Key Master. You will also need to quickly kill the boss of stage 8 to unlock No time to waste.
Clear challenge ‘Speed Gunner’
This is a difficult challenge in which you must score 600,000 points within the time limit. You'll need to memorize where the clusters of enemies appear as well as the score bonuses from the breakable boxes. When you reach the first stopping point, let the enemies cluster so you can quickly pick them all off with the shockwave and keep the stage moving. Ideally you want to reach the second stopping point with enough time to kill one or both of the squidlike enemies with a limit attack (make sure you grab 3 special weapon powerups on the way). Another option is to try and kill all of the enemies at the first stopping point with your regular weapons. You'll have to be fairly fast in doing this or else your timer will expire before you reach the squid. Use your shockwave as soon as the first squid appears because at that point the timer will probably be almost up (this is the method I ended up completing the challenge with and I was just a few hundred points over 600K with less than a second to spare).
The Spread weapon is good for killing the sphere enemies from afar, but is lousy for everything else so be prepared to switch often. You get it along with the powerups in the beginning of the stage. This challenge's difficulty is fixed so you'll start off at a C (x20) ranking. Ideally you'll want to try and push it to B (x24), but make sure you never let it fall below C. I recommend using the Mexxus II alternating between the Spread weapon (for the spheres) and the magma weapon (for everything else).
Clear challenge ‘Stage Keys’
This challenge requires you to collect all five secret keys in stage nine in a single run. Follow the same strategy as listed for Rank Master. The difficulty level you chose is up to you. You need to be rank D for keys 2-4 and rank B for the fifth key. Playing on a harder difficulty level starts you off at a higher rank, but it will be more difficult to maintain it. This challenge is doable on beginner difficulty. Just try to avoid being hit. Special weapons don't really help here, so grab the powerups as they appear in order to charge your limit attack for emergencies. In order to complete the challenge, you need to be at a B rank when you encounter the Guardian for the second time. See Key Master for the locations of the secret keys in this level.
Clear challenge 'Speed Collector'
You will need to play stage eight on any difficulty level and collect 37 extras within the time limit. This one is a no-brainer. Kill everything in sight and try to rack up as many chains as possible. Keep an eye out for enemies that emit a yellow glow as they will drop powerups when destroyed.
