Olimar's Shipwreck Tale Walkthrough
Olimar's Shipwreck Tale is one of the most challenging modes in the Pikmin 4 game. In just 15 days, you need to track down and collect 30 ship parts. With new enemies and environments to contend with, it's no surprise that this is one of the most demanding modes in the game.
How to get to Olimar's Shipwreck in Pikmin 4
The first thing you need to do is get to Olimar's Shipwreck. Unlike other areas in the game, you don't have easy access to the ship's location, as it's surrounded by water and guarded by an enemy.
To get to the ship's location, head to the northwest corner of the first area, where you landed your ship. Defeat the enemy here to access the second base. Travel northeast from here to find the second base and the third ship part.
Finding ship parts and Flarlic in Pikmin 4
Throughout the game, you'll unlock new areas and slowly gather more ship parts. To find all the ship parts in Olimar's Shipwreck Tale, you'll need to follow specific paths, defeat enemies, and use different Pikmin. Here's a breakdown of where to find everything.
You'll find Flarlic in the second and third areas, as well as ship parts. The locations are the same for both, so once you find the Flarlic in one area, you'll unlock it in the other.
Ship part locations and boss fights in Pikmin 4
You can reach the second and third bases in the second area by following the path on the right-hand side. The path is filled with enemies, so be sure to bring a variety of Pikmin. Build bridges where necessary and carry bomb rocks to destroy large groups of enemies.
The same applies to the second and third areas. Make sure you're stocked up on Pikmin, Flarlic, and items to make things easier. Reach the second and third bases in the second area by following the path to the left of the shipwreck.
Travel to the third area and then follow the path across the water heading northeast. You'll come across the second base. Build a bridge and take the path heading south to reach the third base.
The third base is guarded by the Giant Spiner, but you should have the right equipment by this point to make this fight a breeze.
And that's how to complete Olimar's Shipwreck Tale. For more tips on Pikmin 4, make sure you check out our Pikmin 4 review and boss guide to learn how to beat the toughest enemies in the game.
