West Dust Hills Map

Accessed from Dustberg in the southeast; it links to the Alpha Gang Depot in the southwest. Scattered Hill with its Scattered Lakes are in the northeast, and Lake Rabbe is to the north of center. Wind-Up Hill, located in the center west, is blocked off until the postgame; Alpha Droids are higher levels here.

Story[]

Chapter 3

Seeking the Fossil Bandit Holiday, the player is quickly stopped by a scientist whose daughter was last seen following Holiday to retrieve his stolen Blueprint, directing them at the Alpha Gang Depot. Along the way, a woman and a boy stop the player to tell them about Holiday's good deeds. They then meet Detective Dory, who contradicts these stories. Reaching the Alpha Gang Depot, a suspicious man avoids questions about the Great Bird.

Chapter 4

Postgame

The boulder blocking off Wind-Up Hill has been destroyed by the Reaper's Wrath debris.
