A very important part of Lost Planet 2 is upgrading your character and getting more powerful weapons. During the game killing certain enemies leaves behind a box in place of, or along with T-ENG. You get to open those [?] boxes and see what you’ve collected when you see your Episode stats.
[?] Boxes are awarded in LP2 notably after killing Akrid bosses, and some smaller Akrid, plus for other enemies and after performing certain tasks. Collect the boxes by running over them, or “shooting” them with your anchor.
Check out the [?] boxes at the end of Episode 3 Chapter 3 after you kill Red Eye, the Akrid “train” boss with the train’s huge cannon. You have 15+ seconds to collect the boxes ans T-ENG, so if you’re going back to defeat Red eye for the second or successive time, just focus on the ? boxes.
[?] Boxes = Rewards Including Credits
At the end of the Episode when you are checking out your stats you will see that you can press X to open boxes – so do that. Then save and go back to the menu. Now go to My Page on the main menu, then go in like you’re going to edit your character, weapons or whatever. You will see that you can press Y to go to the LP2 Slot Machine. The slot machine will award you weapons, abilities, emotes, character parts and Noms de Guerre.
