The Battle of Kisiwa is the fifth main quest in the game and is received after entering Kisiwa. Throughout the quest, the player joins the Kisiwa Resistance and scales the cliffs of the Kilima Range. They must defeat a Belsoto General in order to continue. After Kisiwa can celebrate its freedom, they travel to Cipanku to find the floating Belsoto fortress.
After all three camps of Belsoto are defeated, the player talks to Adia Turay in the north-west of the desert to go to Uhuru. The player will not be able to leave Uhuru until they have defeated several enemies there, so they must go prepared. In Uhuru, the player can only take one specific route through the city, and cannot enter any buildings except for the Temporium. They head south to the gate first, facing several Belsoto, and fight Max. The player has only one attempt, but does not need to win to progress.
