To start this mission make your way to the Sealed Threshold Entrance Control Point. From this control point make your way to the Sealed Threshold Hall. Inside the hall make your way to the Shelter along the south wall. Enter the Safe Room and make your way to the end of it to reach an Anchor. When you reach the Anchor a boss fight will trigger.

Boss: Anchor

The boss fight with Anchor is fairly straightforward. To defeat this enemy you want to throw objects at it when its mouth is open to shoot clocks out. If you hit Anchor when the mouth is open you will deal serious damage. Rinse and repeat this until Anchor is dead. For killing Anchor you unlock the Living Archetypes Trophy.

Contain the Anchor

After you’ve defeated Anchor make your way over to the Anchor that appears. Cleanse the Anchor to complete this side quest. For completing this quest you earn 3 Ability Points, a mod, and some materials.
