  • SIVA Cluster: Iron Lords 2.9
    • Mission / Area: King of the Mountain
    • Location: At the “Ascend the Mountain” section, hop out of the gondola onto the snowy cliffs that continue up on your left. Instead, explore on the right side to discover this hidden cluster. You’ll need to jump over the hill to view the cliffside where the cluster is located.
  • SIVA Cluster: Fallen 3.0
    • Mission / Area: King of the Mountain
    • Location: Play through the level until you reach an area with an unreachable tower in the distance with a caged metal sphere at the top. A Fallen ship will fly low to the ground — use the ruins on the cliff to jump on top of this ship and ride it as it passes by the tower. Dash/double/triple-jump to the tower to claim this very tricky Cluster. Using the sword can help get you more distance.
  • SIVA Cluster: Clovis Bray 1.3
    • Mission / Area: The Walls Come Down
    • Location: Outside the Cosmodrome, continue toward the objective marker to find an open doorway that leads into the structure.
