Destroy Enemies Vehicles
Along the way to the station, you will encounter several road blocks.
During each road block, you will need to destroy all enemy vehicles in the area.
Once they are defeated, drive the vehicle to the Blast Door. Here, Maya will blast the door open, clearing the path.
After blasting two sets of doors, you’ll eventually reach a point where you must travel the rest of the via foot.
Get out of the car and make your way through the tunnel in order to reach the Station. Along the way, you’ll encounter waves of Maliwan forces. Take them out as you make your way towards the objective.
Eventually, you will find the Apollyon Station. Once you reach the door, wait for Maya to clear the doorway with her powers.

Eventually, you will reach the area of The Forgotten Basilica. Enter the area and use the refill machines if needed, as you are about to enter a boss battle.
Place the Vault Key into the stand as indicated on screen.
Defeat the Rampager
Once the key is placed into the stand, a cutscene will begin to play and reveal that a large guardian protecting the vault has been released into the area. It is your job to try and defeat him.
The Rampager has three different phases, with each phase bringing a new mechanic to the table. Much like other bosses that we have faced in the past, the Rampager is best defeated by moving constantly around the room and dodging the projectiles that he throws your way.
After dealing a specific amount of damage to the boss, you’ll notice that he becomes slightly stunned. Take advantage of this and put as much damage as you can into him while this occurs.
During the Rampager’s final phase, he’ll begin to jump around the room and toss out fire balls in your direction. Dodge these attacks and continue running around the room, otherwise he will land on you. As you run around, continue to damage him when possible until he finally becomes stunned again. Repeat the process until he is finally destroyed.

Now that The Rampager is dead, loot the Vault and take the Eridian Resonator.
Break the Eridium Desposit
