You should be standing in front of an open concrete culvert. Once you slide down, you’ll start another sequence where you need to run forward while avoiding Zurks, so make sure you’re ready before you head down into the culvert.
The name of the game is simple: don’t die. Make sure you’re holding the sprint key the whole time, and keep moving forward. There are multiple spots where you can jump over small ledges or obstacles to avoid upcoming groups of Zurks, so make sure you’re looking ahead and planning accordingly. There are a few spots where Zurks will pour out of holes in the wall — the temptation may be to move away from the holes, but you’re actually safer closer to the wall they’re coming out of.
The only truly tricky part comes near the end of this chase sequence, and it’s something of a logic puzzle.
Once you’ve made it under the stairs, you still aren’t safe! Keep going until you’ve jumped up onto the ledge that overlooks some scummy green water. Here you can catch your breath as you examine the girder puzzle ahead of you.
Once you’re on the pipe on the far side of the room, follow it until you can jump to some barrels floating in the water, and use those to reach a series of girders. Jump across them and you’ll find yourself over another culvert — this time you won’t have to do any running, just hop down onto the cart and it will crush Zurks as it barrels down the culvert.
After your “landing”, head towards the bright light, and jump up on the vehicle next to it to reach the pipes above. Keep using the pipes to climb higher, and then cat parkour over to the nearby culvert with the waterfall that’s running through what appear to be air conditioners.
Continue forward, and you’ll reach a spot where you can turn left and jump up a ledge. This is the way forward, but first you can find another memory by continuing straight and slipping through a small hole in the fence, then turning right and jumping to the corpse of the robot.
Once you’ve grabbed the memory, go back to the junction and this time jump up the ledges, and then to the top of the fence (by way of AC unit). Hop down into the dirty courtyard, and head to the orange-lit alleys across the canal. Jump across the broken bridge, and then go down either alley. Both alleys dead end, and you can jump up towards the higher ground between the two alleys. Once there, head through the window with the cables coming out of it.
Head down the stairs and you’ll meet Doc. After you’re done speaking with him, you can grab a memory over by the couch covered in garbage. Then you’ll somehow need to convince him that he can save himself…
Once Doc realizes you can help him get the item charged, he’ll tell you to follow him. Go back upstairs, and head over to where he’s waiting by the window. He’ll give you a Fuse to put in the generator, and open the window for you. It’s easy to find the generator, since you can follow the yellow and black cables the whole way. Once there, you can use the Fuse on it to start the generator, but be ready — once you insert the fuse, you’ll be attacked by a large swarm of Zurks. You’ll need to be clever like a cat to stay alive!
Once the area is clear of Zurks, head back through window (follow the cables if you’re lost) and you’ll speak with Doc again. He’ll mount the Defluxor on B-12, and then you can follow him out of the apartment. Outside, you’ll find a bunch of Zurks trying to get through a fence, and you’ll learn how to use the Defluxor to kill Zurks.
Once the Zurks are all popped, Doc will open the gate and you can follow him across the bridge, where Doc will discover that the way ahead is blocked. You’ll have to find a way to restore power to the gate…
You’ll find yourself on a metal platform in a narrow room — hop down and pull the switch in the middle of the room. This will open a door at the far side of the room, and you can head through. Turn right as you exit the doorway, and be prepared to use the Defluxor on the two groups of Zurks waiting for you. Once both groups are toast, continue to the gate, which will open as you approach. Doc’s being attacked by Zurks, so use the Defluxor on him (it doesn’t hurt robots) to free him, and he’ll scramble inside and close the gate.
Clean up any remaining Zurks, then follow Doc. He’ll open another gate — continue with him into the next hallway, and at the other end he’ll open up a sealed door. A cutscene will play, and then you’ll be back in the Slums! From here, you can continue to The Sewers, but you can also explore the Slums some more if you arent ready for a dangerous, lonely adventure. When you’re ready to leave this area, head the direction the Guardian indicated, down the stairs, then down the next set of stairs to the docks.
While this is technically a point of no return, you can always restart the Slums chapter at any point if you want to finish collecting all the Memories or otherwise check out stuff you missed.
Follow the wooden walkway to the window, then hop through it. On the other side of the docks you’ll see Momo waving to you from a raft — make your way to the far side of the docks, and then hop onto the raft to head to The Sewers!
