The music record, the three staff parts, pommel, head, and grip and then the element itself.
- The record spawn around the map, but can be found under the church (the tank may need to have moved to find it) Or in the warehouse on the second floor.
- The pommel head and grip need more work to find. To use the tank player has to jumo off onto the platforms by the road only reachable from the tank and grab the part, alternatively you could try and dig up the part,
- Shooting down a plane that is glowing the correct colour will also drop a part.
You will need a musical discs to be able to access the ancient burial area of the excavation site. You'll notice that the entrance to the tombs is blocked until you play the music discs. You'll need to find the Gramophone which is located below the Pack-a-Punch machine (at the base of the Excavation Site (check the video below)
Once you have found a Gramophone/musical part, go to the lightning tunnel by generator Station 5, and place the Gramophone on the bench, and go through the portal that appears and you'll be taken to a burial ground with several coloured stones. Each colour corresponds to a particular staff e.g. yellow is the Wind staff. Pick up the crystal for the staff you want to build (and also have all the parts for).
After this, using the gramophone you need to find the correct excavation in the map and place it next to the wall at the bottom labeled crazy. After 10 seconds a teleporter will open allowing access to a temple, and a stand directly in front with the element inside it. They must then return to the entry point by standing on the red circle clicking "activate" and then entering the teleporter again
Completing the Build
The staffs are built in the lower level of the excavation site using the strange tombs. Accessing the lower level is possible by finding the correct music disc and placing the Gramophone with the appropriate Disc on the table.
Wait for a short period of time, wait for the bottom of the Tomb to open up, place the parts on the pedestal for the Lightning staff, build it, and collect the Staff of Lightning
The Staff of Lightning can be spun and is a rapid fire weapon that shoots purple bursts of lightning. Note that it cannot be Pack a Punched. It is not a melee weapon and takes two gun slots. It starts out with 12 shots in the clip and 120 in reserve ammunition. You will not be able to trade out a staff for another gun and then re-pick up the staff.
