Go to the boathouse
Meet up with the Saints at the church to discuss the plan. The building you need to search isn't too far away, but you can use a car if you want to.
Dispatch the guards in front of the building and go inside.
Fight your way to the vault
Once inside, follow the established route and deal with the Idols along the way. Remember to use your AoE skills to weaken or eliminate larger groups. You can also use quick shots to fire at explosive objects.
Your destination is the passage underground.
Get the Codex
Approach the Codex display case. When you try to take it, you'll realize you've been deceived and lured into a trap.
You must defuse the bomb before it explodes - just approach the empty case and interact with it.
Break out of the vault
Numerous Idol groups will attack you on your way out. Once again, AoE abilities are very useful here. A scoped gun will also come in handy when fighting your way through a long corridor.
Grab a jetski
Leave the building and head towards the water. Grab one of the jet skis found there. Head towards the huge yacht you must search to retrieve the Codex.
Take the jump
You can reach the yacht thanks to the ramp pictured above. Approach it in a straight line at high speed to land on the yacht.
Get the Codex
Once you're on the yacht, you must keep reaching the markers the game places for you while killing the enemies along the way. Just like before, use your skills, quickshots and takedowns.
Reach the Codex display case - once again, you must defuse a bomb by interacting with it.
Plant the bomb
Take the disarmed bomb to the yacht's bridge. Interact with the central console to place the bomb on it, then start running.
Kill both Collective members
Head towards the yacht's helipad. The aircraft will end up getting destroyed, initiating a mini-boss battle against two Collective members. They're marked with skull icons, like all bosses.
We recommend focusing on one of them at a time, as they're both very durable and have yellow armor bars. Use Takedowns on regular enemies to heal up when needed. Equip your best weapon, aim for the heads and dodge often.
Escape the yacht
This is a pretty confusing objective. Don't immediately jump into the water. You must run through a long corridor in the burning yacht instead. If you end up getting set on fire, dodge roll to put out the flames. You don't need to eliminate every encountered enemy, focus on reaching your destination instead.
You'll eventually reach a small boat you can use to escape.
Escape to shore
This mission ends with a long chase scene. Fire at the jet skis and boats pursuing you. You can keep firing for as long as you wish, as your ammo is unlimited.
Reach the shore to complete the chase and the mission.
