How to Get Past Lava in South Park: The Fractured But Whole
As you wander around the town in South Park: The Fractured But Whole, you’ll have noticed red LEGO bricks, or as the kids refer to it, lava, blocking paths and buildings all over the place. Trying to walk through this will see your character suffer damage and walk back out of it. Here’s what you need to know to get past lava in The Fractured But Whole.
This is actually something you’ll naturally unlock as you progress through the game, so don’t worry to much about missing it. Once you’ve beaten drunk Randy in combat, Toolshed, AKA Stan, will come and thank you for looking out for his dad. After a quest that introduces his Sandblaster ability, you’ll then be free to use it around South Park. To do this, you’ll need to press L2 (or LT on Xbox One), and move the reticle over the lava. You’ll then see the buddy abilities circle appear. You want to look for the icon that looks like a hose and then hold down X / A.
A silhouette will now appear nearby, so go and stand in it and press X or A once again. Your character will whip out there phone and send a message to Toolshed to lend a helping hand. Complete the little mini-game and the lava will be cleared.
