Returnal has its share of bosses. Each boss is more exhilarating and challenging than the last. The first boss, Phrike, can be found behind the closed Anathema Vault. This Returnal guide will include all the details on opening the Anathema Vault to face the boss behind it.
The boss can be found inside the Anathema Vault. However, obtaining the key to the crypt is not that simple.
How To Unlock The Anathema Vault In Returnal
The first thing you need to do is to make your way to the one-eyed giants. Shoot their eyes as this will give you a chance to run past them towards the entrance of the Vault. Once you have this place saved as a fast travel location, venture forth and try to find the Atropian Blade, which you can acquire after the first biome, Overgrown Ruins.
Once you acquire it, cut through the protective barriers and proceed further. You will then reach an area with an alien statue. Scan the area, and you will find the key to the Vault. Deal with the flying enemies that spawn and fast travel back to the entrance.
Now that you have acquired the key, you can use it to open the gate of the Anathema Vault and go inside to face the first boss in Returnal. This is how you can access the Anathema Vault in Returnal.
