After sliding down the first metal ramp, you’ll be at a fork in the road. Rocket will mention that the right path is a dead end, which is true.

Instead, walk to your right onto a blue metal platform just before the fork in the road. You can drop down inside a corridor on this metal outcropping. Inside you’ll find some components and Rocket’s Guardians of the Galaxy movie outfit.

Chapter 2: Busted outfit

There are two outfits in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy Chapter 2: Busted. However, you can only collect one of them for now. You’ll be able to get the other one in Chapter 7.

As you’re following Nikki through the Nova Corps base, you’ll go down a flight of stairs. When she asks you whether you want to hear the “good news” or “bad news” about your crew, you can go down another flight of steps to a landing covered in water. Behind some pipes, you’ll see a box containing an outfit. You’ll be able to get this costume in Chapter 7.

Gamora outfit: Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

After defeating the jelly monsters, your team will climb out of the battle arena and into a forest. In the forest, take a right near the red flora. Keep going until you reach a cave. Inside the cave, you’ll have to destroy some red goo to continue forward. In the next section of the cave, you’ll have to fight two jelly monsters on your own. After defeating them, shoot the grey goo to move onward. After squeezing through a narrow passage, climb out of the cave and you’ll find a box with Gamora’s Guardians of the Galaxy outfit on your right before you exit.

Groot outfit: Five Horsemen of the Apocalypse

After defeating the duo of tailed slakebeasts, you’ll grab the electronic cage. From there, you’ll need Groot to build a bridge to continue forward. Over the bridge, take the path to the left where you’ll need to destroy some grey goo to enter a cave. Inside the cave, use your elemental guns to shoot ice at the waterfall to create a platform. Climb up and out of the cave to find this Groot outfit on the edge of a cliff.

After riding the elevator down, your teammates will go left to investigate further. Go right and hop over the bar table.

In this room, you’ll find a pallet along the far wall. Star-Lord will ask Groot to raise the platform with him on it. Raise the platform to a walkway above you. From there, crawl through the vent to a larger room. In this new area, you can route the power with your guns to a door in the back of the room. Inside is Rocket’s Nova Corp outfit.

Gamora outfit: Nova Corps

After fighting the flying Nova Corp members, you will retrace the steps you took with Nikki earlier in the game.

Cross the bridge and walk through the tunnel. At the end will be a malfunctioning door. Shoot the panel above the door to reveal machinery you can shoot electricity at from your guns so the door opens.

In the next area is a room where most of the ground is covered in electricity. Shoot the panel off of a small door to your left and command Rocket to enter. He’ll turn off the electricity. You can find the outfit box behind some pallets to the right. (Confirmation courtesy of PowerPyx.)

After you receive the fire ability for Star-Lord’s guns, you’ll use your new skill to melt ice in a cave. At one point you’ll melt ice from the ceiling to drop a piece of the cave on top of a giant skeleton. This lets you jump across a gap.

On the other side, look up to your left to find more ice on the ceiling to melt which drops a platform. Have Groot raise this platform up to a small opening in a cave to grab this outfit. (Confirmation courtesy of PowerPyx.)
