Scarlet Nexus – Human Like But Not (Side Quest) Guide

Game Guides

Once you reach Phase 1 – Trusting The Path To The Future you will begin unlocking the various different optional side quests. These side quests are often then found on the map and appear as white little diamond shaped icons, once you have them accepted they then appear in the Story category in your menu section

One of the many different optional side quests that you can find and complete is Human Like But Not. This involves having to Defeating 5 Buddy Rummy whilst in Brain Drive mode

  • NAME: Human Like But Not
  • TYPE: Side Quest
  • STORY OBJECTIVE: Phase 3 – Inside Upside Down Reality
  • CHARACTER: Yuito Sumeragi
  • LOCATION: Suoh City Ryujin Ward
  • QUEST GIVER: Relief Corps Member
  • REWARDS: Normalization Tablet x3
  • DESCRIPTION: I’m really not a fan of Others that closely resemble humans. I’m sorry to ask you, but would you mind taking care of that human-shaped one for me?
  • You can obtain this side quest whilst on the Phase 3 – Inside Upside Down Reality
  • Simply head to the Suoh City Ryujin Ward and speak to the Relief Corps member
  • We will now be tasked with having to defeat 5 Buddy Rummy all whilst we are still in Brain Drive mode
  • Now an easy option here is to unlock the Brain Drive: Restore Brain Drive 1 and 2 abilities in the Brain Map, this will help increase the length of time you can use the brain drive for, it is kind of important but you can do it without as I only discovered these abilities after completing the side quest. However, now that I told you about them don’t be like me and unlock them as soon as possible if you haven’t already.
  • Okay, this will also require a bit of tactical thinking too and please be aware this is the method that worked for me, and so it may not the the best method to use. Feel free to comment below if you have better strategies for this!
  • Anyway let us begin!
  • For my personal strategy I would recommend that you grind the Brain Drive gauge by heading to Kikuchiba – Mid Level Shopping District and try to avoid the Sub Level Underground Facility, I’ll tell you why in a bit.
  • You may be wondering why you should grind the Brain Drive gauge in Kikuchiba, well the reason for that is because it is the location of many Buddy Rummy enemies.
  • Also, please note that leaving Kikuchiba altogether will empty the Brain Drive gauge, so be prepared for this if you plan on leaving the area.
  • Okay keep filling the Brain Drive gauge until it is almost full, don’t fill it completely or get it any higher because we need to kill one more batch of enemies before the Buddy Rummy appear and don’t forget about the delightful time limit we have. However, if you unlocked those abilities I told you about then it might not be too bad for you and you could end up finding this to be easier than it was for me.
  • Once you feel like you are ready head to the Sub Level Underground Facility (Floor 3) which is the area next to the Kikuchiba – Mid Level Shopping District
  • Here you will encounter several waves of the Buddy Rummy, well after we have managed to lure them out of course, I did say we had one more wave of other enemies first.
  • Defeat the Scummy Pendu, who by the way are one of my least favourite enemies in the game, and we should now be on the brink of unleashing the Brain Drive.
  • Continue on and we should now be up against the Buddy Rummy, finally lets go all out!
  • Defeating these Buddy Rummy should give us 3/5, only 2 remain!
  • After disposing of those, quickly head down the stairs and past the save point
  • Then turn right at the fork in the path
  • Defeat the Scummy Pendu here, they are easily taken out by flying objects so make sure to use your psychokinesis abilities
  • Once the Scummy Pendu have been successfully dealt with a bunch of Buddy Rummy will then appear, eliminating these should be enough to get the side quest done
