The Rage 2 Ark locations aren’t something you just know by playing the game. You have to find them. This means you might not be able to automatically discover exactly where the barrier, defibrillator, or rush abilities are as well as the rocket launcher, shotgun, and more. Here are all the Ark locations in the game you’ll need to get the Rage 2 Barrier location as well as the Rush, Slam, Defibrillation, and Vortex abilities. Weapons are also in Arks meaning you’ll need this to find the Rage 2 rocket launcher location in addition to weapons like the Combat Shotgun, Grav-Dart Launcher, Firestorm Revolver, Charged Pulse Cannon, and Hyper-Cannon.
Almost all of these Arks are completely optional and follow a similar pattern so be sure to go to the area and eliminate all of the enemies first. You’ll only be granted access once you have killed every foe. Once you go in and grab the goods, you’ll usually be ambushed again, giving you an opportunity to use your newly discovered toy. While you don’t need every single one, you will need at least five for the “A Noah Lot” trophy or achievement. Also the BFG is its own thing, which you can find here, and the Dash, Slam, and Grav-Jump Arks are all mandatory Arks you find in the beginning.

It’s an early mission for him, so you can get this out of the way quickly if you do his quests first.
