Let us begin by sprinting straight down the catwalk ahead. Go up to the door and head through to the next area. Go down the hallway and turn right to find a bunch of crates plus a variety of ammo. Head through the door at the end of the hallway when you see it. Proceed and you should see a brief cinematic.
Head downstairs to where the Majini are throw a Grenade at them. A well-placed throw should bring them all down. A few more Majini will start spilling in so take care of them and continue down the hallway. There's a Green Herb tucked away on the crates to the right. Take care of the enemies and pick that one up.
Go on through the door and take cover behind the big tank to the left. You can do so by using the "Against the Wall" action when you are at the corner. Equip your Sniper Rifle and begin picking off the guy at the crates. Now emerge from the tank and open fire on the Majini. You can also use your Grenades if you have any to speed up the process a bit. Either way, defeat each of them and make your way to the door. Before heading through, you might want to turn into the little room to the left of it to find a couple of crates. Procure whatever is inside and head through the door.
Proceed down the hallway and check out the two wooden crates. Continue on and into the next room. You are immediately greeted by some Majini. Fight your way up the stairs and don't forget about the four crates at the foot of each flight of stairs. When you make up the stairs, some reinforcements will spill into the room. There's a gas tank to the right of them, so blast it for a quick remedy. Take cover at the wooden crates and begin the fight with the enemies in the next room. There's another gas tank there, so look for it. Proceed to the catwalk on the left and look for the elevator to goto the next area.
Grab the Green Herb and procure the wooden crate. Proceed down the hallway to the left and you should see a few Licker Beta shortly. Try to see if you can get by without getting noticed. If that fails, the worst case scenario is just you filling their craniums with shotgun shells. Anyway, turn right at the end of _this_ hallway to find another passage. You won't be able to avoid the Licker Beta this time around, so start blasting away. Proceed to the end of this hallway and turn to the left to the next door.
This next room is immediately dangerous so sprint down this catwalk and quickly check out the two crates before jumping down below. Turn to your left and dispatch of the Majini here. Print straight ahead and turn right to climb up the ladder when you see it. Fast-equip to your Sniper Rifle and pick off the Majini up ahead. Turn to the right and dispatch of the two to the left of the conveyor belt's end. There's another guy on the ground to the left of them, too.
The next Majini to attack is the one at the catwalk above you. Now proceed to the end of your own catwalk and jump down. Proceed to the yellow railing and procure the Wooden Crates nearby. If you are still getting attacked, chances are it's from some guy standing near the light at the end of the conveyor belt. Speaking of which, you should head over there now. Go up the small stairs, and jump down on to the conveyor belt through the little opening to the right. Now you'll have to run against the conveyor's belt motion, and jump up the catwalk to the right when you are able. Head up the stairs and open the door above to the next area.
Some more enemies are here. Begin with the Majini at the catwalk above. Now jump on to the conveyor belt with your Sniper Rifle handy. Look to the catwalk above and you should see a gas tank. Blast it with your rifle to dispatch of the Majini up there. Proceed along the conveyor belt, but check with your Sniper Rifle every few steps for some Majini. When they drop down to the belt, fire a bullet at a nearby gas tank to kill them instantly. Also check for the Majini that will enter to the catwalk above. Anyway, jump up the catwalk to the left at the end of the conveyor belt when you get there.
Just head down the nearby stairs and open up the large briefcase on the table ahead. Inside, you will find the SIG 556, a machine gun. It's not quite as good as the AK-74 in my view, so you might want Sheva to pick this one up. Don't forget about the crates to the left of the dumpsters. Head up the small stairs near the SIG 556 and continue up the next flight. Go straight ahead until you see the next set of stairs going downwards to the right. Proceed along this catwalk for a bit and past the egg on the wall. Turn left and you should soon see some Machine Gun Ammo on the crate. Proceed along the catwalk to the stairs ahead. Turn right at the top to find a bunch of crates on the table, along with a Green Herb. Now proceed to the marker and pull the lever.
Turn around and follow the arrow downstairs. Continue on this catwalk, and go right this time. Soon a Reaper will drop from above. Nothing some Shotgun Shells can't handle, though. Dispose of it and pick up the Power Stone. Now run up the stairs behind it, and proceed down the small set of stairs after to the marker. Pull the lever to get the conveyor belt going. Drop down on to the belt and just go towards the fire at the end at first, and switch to the conveyor belt to the right when you are able. Run on the black strip between the two conveyor belts until you get the prompt to pick up the Dead Bride's Necklace. Keep running against the conveyor belt until you see the opening to the right, to get back on to the other belt. Do so and climb up the nearby catwalk. Proceed to the crates on the crates (lol) and check them out. Now head up the nearby stairs and to the marker to the next area.
Follow the hallway and jump down the ledge at the bottom. Be sure to check out the crates to the right. When you're ready, take a deep breath, and prepare for the rematch against Uroboros.
Boss: Troboros (2)
This battle is completely different than the last one, and it will be treated as such. The only thing in common as last time is the fact that fire is still your main weapon against him. This time, however, the flames will come in the form of a flamethrower. When the fight begins, immediately Quick Turn and sprint straight forward to the wall. This is where the flamethrower is, so take note of it. You won't be able to use it yet, because it's charging. This is something else of note--even after it finishes charging initially, once you deplete the flames in the tank (IE the flamethrower "ammo" goes from 100 to 0), you have to put the flamethrower back to allow it to charge again.
For the actual strategy, take note of the three gas tanks around the area. There's one on the centre pillar, and there's two more to the left and the right. We aren't going to be able to strategize with the tanks this time around, so just make sure that you damage the Urobros with them. Take some time to deal some damage with the gas tanks while the flamethrower charge. When the flamethrower is ready, you will get a little cut scene. Go grab the flamethrower (if you're done blowing up the gas tanks), get right in front of the Uroboros and start firing away. You might take a tentacle attack for your troubles, but it's worth it if you can get hit once for emptying half of your tank.
Speaking of the Uroboros attacks, watch for the Dodge prompt (Action Button + Run Button). Also, watch for the Uroboros to do a little "degenerating" attack, where it will dissipate completely, and suddenly rebuild itself close to you. Don't get caught off-guard by this. If you get in trouble, note that there's a First Aid Spray near the surgical chair, and another one in the cabinet to the left of the flamethrower. If you start this battle with full health, you should have no problem winning.
I do want to note that while your flamethrower is charging, switch to your shotgun or Sniper Rifle and start blasting the yellow bulbs on its arms to deal damage. Just keep charging your flamethrower, blasting it with flames, and shooting its yellow bulbs until it goes down to conclude the chapter.
