Plasma Spark

It’s not actually impossible. While it’s not easy by any means, it is the fastest way through the room in KPDR. That doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best strat, as health is often at a high premium.


As seen in the Plasma Spark video, ideally you will jump to the left of the Skultera, but the timing on this is tight, even if you're not going for the spark.

You have the option of running through the first Owtch with the Blue Suit to collect its drop, before going up and right, then jumping left up the shaft.

Alternatively, you can pick up an extra drop by climbing up and jumping to the right of the Skultera when it's at its leftmost point of travel next to the ledge. You can then farm the left-side Choot before walljumping up.

After getting Plasma, you can go up and kill the Choots on your way to the tunnel door. If you get knocked down, you're better off continuing down and left around to the door instead of continuing up.

As a beginner if you find yourself consistently being hit by the first Choot, you could stand underneath it and fire a shot up before jumping, performing a Hero Shot to freeze it before jumping up.
