Apocalypse Rising 2: Portal Complete Guide

What’s on the other side?

Apocalypse Rising 2 has an ongoing Halloween Event that has completely changed up the map. Players have been having a blast as they play through the Citadel. They have been able to get some fantastic loot while fighting some unique enemies. Although there has been yet another update to this Event.

This is the Portal which has now opened and is available for players to enter inside. However, the Portal completely flips the rules of the game on its head, which has been giving players quite a bit of trouble. In this guide, we will show you everything you need to know about the Portal. In this way, you will be able to dominate it and come out on top!

Portal Complete Guide

The Portal is now open in Apocalypse Rising 2, and you can easily see it on your map. It is available right in the middle and there is a whole other section of the map waiting inside for you. This includes a chance to get some amazing new rewards and Cosmetics.

Before going inside the Portal, there are certain things that you need to know. When you enter through the Portal, all players are restricted to Melee only. This means any guns, ammo and gear that you take with you will be useless.

As a result, we highly recommend that you do not bring gear with you, besides items like Utilities. This is because you will simply not be able to use the gear.

You also want to make sure that the area around the Portal is clear before you go in. This is because there are players who may use the Portal as bait.

You also don’t want to go inside with a lot of people as this will decrease your chances of survival.

Entering the Portal

Once you are ready, you can make your way to the Portal. When you enter inside, you will be spawned into a strange looking area.

After you spawn in, you will see there are some crates nearby. Access these crates as they can provide you with Melee Weapons you need for this area. There will also be some Goop inside.

As a reminder, this area will only be Melee only, so make sure you get your Melee Weapon. After that, there will be a very dangerous path ahead.

You will basically need to navigate a Chain. It is very easy to fall down this Chain if you are not careful with your jumping.

However, with practice you should be able to get the hang of navigating this Chain. We recommend using the first-person camera if you are having issues with this part.

Fighting Strategies

Once you have navigated the chain, you will find yourself on the outer edges of the arena. This area consists of small corridors, stairs and lots of corners. So, you want to play stealthily here, using the third-person camera to look around corners.

If you see a person walking towards you, you can wait around the corner and get a hit on them. This will allow you to win any Melee battles.

Additionally, you can even look around for dead zombies as signs that there is a person nearby. When they are looting, you can get the first hit and win the fight.

Surprising enemy looting in Apocalypse Rising 2.

Be on the lookout for the Katana. This is by far the most powerful Melee weapon in the game, as it is the only one that can kill people in two hits.

Once you get the Katana, you will be able to be more aggressive in engagements with opponents.

Keep in mind that some enemies will run towards the Chain to bait you into falling. So, you should be confident that you will be able to balance yourself on the Chains while still fighting your opponent. Otherwise, it is best that you get rid of them before it comes to that.

There are certain Cosmetics that are only obtainable within the Portal. Specifically, you can get these Cosmetics in the Arena, which is the large middle section of the Portal area.

You will likely find other players here and will need to eliminate them, which should be simple enough with the Katana.

In this Arena section, you will see that there are a lot of zombies. To get the Cosmetics, you will need to kill these Zombies and then loot them.

When you loot them, you will find the Cosmetics on them that you can equip.

These Cosmetics have a chance to drop so it is possible that some zombies don’t give anything. Remember, it is Melee only so you will need to get up close and personal.

The Clothes themselves are not really rare. However, the Belt, Chains and Vest are a little bit rarer than the other Cosmetics. After a few tries, you should be able to get all the Cosmetics within this area.

Leaving the Portal

Once you’ve had your fun in the Arena, you will want to leave the area and continue with your looting in the rest of the map. However, this part can be confusing since there isn’t any immediately obvious way to leave the area.

To leave the Portal, all you have to do is to wait for the Gates upstairs to open. The Gates open every 2 minutes and they remain open for 30 seconds. After that they close, and you will need to wait for an additional 2 minutes.

When they open, you will be met with colored portals that will take you to different sections of the map. Here is a list which shows which portal leads to where:

  • The bright red Portals take you to The Citadel.
  • The red and orange Portals take you to the Prison.
  • The white and brown Portals take you to Ash.
  • The yellow Portals take you to the Naval Air Station (NAS).

You can choose the location you want to go to and continue with your looting!

That’s everything you need to know about the Portal and navigating the various dangers within it. It adds an interesting new twist since you can only do Melee combat inside the Arena. You can also get some amazing Cosmetics which are tied to the event. So, we recommend that you get your hands on them before time runs out!
