All hidden parts
By Xerkan
A complete guide to hidden crate locations in missions. Light spoilers
Chapter 2: Infiltrate Grid 086
This is the first mission with crates and it has four. All of them are C-3000 WRECKER parts.

The first one is just after entering the building.
after going through the hole in the floor look right behind you.

The next two are near this molten liquid

First just go through it and its right at the bottom of the room.

The next one is pretty hidden. You have to go into the pipe across from the one spewing the molten steel. It will then be just straight ahead guarded by an AC.

The last crate is up the ramp to the right of the arena where you fight a tetrapod and explosives fall of the ceiling.

Chapter 3: Tunnel Sabotage
This mission has one crate. The part is an RII plasma rifle.

After the first section jump up the walkway shown in the image. It should be the highest one in the area.

To the left will be a big room with a sniper and a group of MT's. The crate is past the sniper on the big generator.

Chapter 3: Survey the Uninhabited Floating City
This mission has one crate. The part is an RII generator

Proceed through the mission until the defenses start to activate. The crate is on the building where the first drone activates.

Chapter 3: Eliminate "Honest" Brute
This mission has three crates. A flamethrower, a chainsaw, and a booster.

The chainsaw is where the first group of enemies with laser detectors are. go to the platform off to the left and its near the edge.

The booster is on the large platform with a tetrapod fight. Go off to the right and the crate is on the end of the big excavator.

The flamethrower is just after you enter the building. drop to the first platform and it is in plain sight.
Chapter 4: Underground Exploration - Depth 1
Only one crate here. This part is the EPHEMERA legs, one piece of this set is in each exploration mission.

The crate is in the back of the room where you open the partition.Its on the critical mission path.
Chapter 4: Underground Exploration - Depth 2
This section has two parts in it. The EPHEMERA arms and the gills booster.

Follow the mission path until the big retreats past a locked door. in the room to right with two enemies in it there is a crate.

The other one found while going through the side path. on the top floor of the ventilation shaft there is platform with a crate on it.
Chapter 4: Underground Exploration - Depth 3
This exploration has two crates. The EPHEMERA core and the Ocellus FCS

The core is on the central platform and to the left. Go to about the third walkway and the crate will be at the end of it. There is an enemy with a blue light and a battle log on the walkway.

The FCS is to the right along the platforms close to the wall. Go to the first one then jump to the platform to the left of it at the same elevation touching the wall. The crate is past some containers, in full view of the laser cannons.
Chapter 4: Unknown Territory Survey
One crate. This is the EPHEMERA head.

Across a chasm then below a small cliff. This crate is on the critical mission path and probably only missed if your speeding past the area.
Chapter 4: Reach the Coral Convergence
This mission has two crates. The parts are the moonlight blade and the Aurora light wave cannon.

In the first part of the mission, instead of engaging the AC group, go to the right to a raised section. The light wave cannon is on a building there.

The moonlight blade is at the other side of the big lake full of wheel enemies. At the base of a building right before the exit surrounded by three inactive wheels. You don't have to fight the wheels.

(New game++ only) Chapter 5: Regain Control of the Xylem
These are the last hidden parts and the mission is only available in NG++

There's two crates in this mission. The parts are a coral missile launcher and a coral shield

Here is the starting location. The missile launcher is right next to where the target is.

And that's the part. Easy

The coral shield is in the elevator shaft you came down in the other mission in this area. Its in the last section of parasite devices, before you move to the core room.

This game has HIDDEN SHIT? Damnit, my "Bethesda disorder" is gonna kick in and I'll explore every bit of every map now.

Buttersnipe it depends on which picture your referring to but it would be either the soup missile launcher(available in the shop in NG+), the needle missiles(same location), or the stun needle launcher.

hidden parts are lazy, they should have made named enemies to unlock them like ace combat
