Pipe Path Tower is in the third batch of unlocked islands in Bowser’s Fury, and it’s filled with pipes that shoot you around the island, as well as hidden Cat Shine Shards.

On Pipe Path Tower, the Super Bell will come in handy to help you climb and scale the walls if you need to backtrack or if you missed a Cat Shine Shard. You’ll also need a Fire Flower to break some obstructions in the way for the final shard.

The first Cat Shine Shard is floating near the entrance above a pipe exit. To get to this shard, take the pipe route directly under the arrow pointing right. This will spit you out where the shard is.

The second Cat Shine Shard is outside the pipes. To grab it, leave the pipe and carefully walk across the top of the pipes.

The third Cat Shine Shard is below two pipe exits, so just use one of them. This will launch you out the pipe, to the shard, and into the other pipe.

The fourth Cat Shine Shard is floating above another pipe exit. As you did with the other ones, navigate to the exit and let it shoot you straight into the shard.

You can only reach the final Cat Shine Shard from the top of the tower, where the lighthouse is. Break the spiny orbs in a tunnel at the top using Fire Mario, and jump into that pipe. It’ll spit you out at the final shard.
