For the Waste Recovery Discovery, you'll need to disable the emergency lock four times. There's no penalty for making a mistake, so take it easy and just aim to do it correctly four times.
We recommend taking out as many of its AI Programming Cores as possible. This will limit its ability to use its Fingerbeams, which can stun your party members and are highly dangerous. Removing AI Programming Cores will have the added benefit of limiting Airbuster's movement abilities, making its attacks slower.
There are a total of 6 Keycards obtainable in the Assembly Plant area. You're required to use the first keycard to take out an M Unit, so other than that, you're free to choose how to use them.
Each of the 6 Keycards can be found in the following locations. See the Chapter 7 Maps section for detailed locations of each of the Keycards on the full Map.
