Throughout Aionios, you will find several different large decrepit machines known as Ferronis Hulks scattered around. Ferronis Hulks were used by colonies as a source of resources, which, when destroyed, also destroyed the colonies.
In this guide, we’ll be looking at everything there is to know about Ferronis Hulks in Xenoblade Chronicles 3.
What Are Ferronis Hulks?
Ferronis Hulks are large machines that were used by the early colonies to fuel them. They were run by a Flame Clock. Over time these Flame Clocks ran out and the machines fell into ruin.
Throughout your journey, you’ll find a lot of these in several different regions. They are mainly located at the front and the center of a colony. Your task is to reboot all the Ferronis Hulks, restoring all the lost colonies.
Rebooting a particular Ferronis Hulk requires Ether Cylinders. Rebooting a particular Ferronis Hulk also reaps certain benefits.
Upon being rebooted, they become available as resting spots and unlock fast travel. They also provide you with two containers of rare items, as well as a Nopon Trader and a Fabricator, which you can use to craft several different items.
It is also important to know that they will be surrounded by enemies, so if you’re looking to reboot a particular Ferronis Hulk, you better come prepared for a fight.
All Ferronis Hulk Locations
Since they are fairly large machines, Ferronis Hulks are pretty hard to miss. Additionally, if they are spotted by a teammate, they will inform you of it instantly.
