During your interaction with him, he’ll also confess that he programmed the extinction of Gatlians. Some events lead to the secret ending of High on Life, and players would need to consider them seriously if they want to experience it. These events also set the stage for you to meet Dr. Gurgula in High on Life. Let us explain these events first:

Nipulon’s Bounty

Nipulon’s bounty is an essential mission in High on Life, which tasks you to kill Garmantous. Fighting Garmantous would not be easy, as he is the most dangerous boss of the G3 cartel. Considering these facts, players must devise a capable strategy before finally facing the demonic boss in a fight in four phases.

This bounty is significant because finishing it allows you access to Bounty-5k. Bounty-5K takes you closer to meeting Dr. Gurgula in High on Life. Primarily, it will enable you to access Clugg’s office.

Clugg’s Office

Clugg is the magistrate of Blim City in High on Life. Players can reach him by navigating through the portals lab using the Bounty-5k and selecting Nova Sanctus from the available portals. Interestingly, you will not find the magistrate in his office. To be honest, you will not be there to meet the magistrate.

All you have to do is to steal the Human Haven Keycard from the table beside you. After doing so, use the Bounty-5k to return to the portals lab. Use the lab again and travel to Human Haven in the unknown sector of the game.

We are getting closer to meeting Dr. Gurgula in High on Life. Now that we have completed all the prerequisites for meeting Dr. Gurgula, let’s talk about his hideout in the game.

You can find his hideout by following specific hints on certain locations in High on Life. The details of these hints and the locations are given below:

Douglas’ Room

While on your bounty mission to deal with Douglas, the chief of Torture and Training in G3, you can also find a hint corresponding to Dr. Gurgula’s location in High on Life. You will have to use the Bounty-5k and teleport to Port Terrene. Locate Douglas’s whereabouts in the Dreg Town area of Port Terrene.

Once you are finished killing Douglas, move on inside his room. Inside his room, you will hear Garmantous speaking through a computer. Look around for a fan. Around that fan, you will be able to locate a poster. The poster is the first hint. Therefore, please pick it up and take it with you.

Most players miss this hint unintentionally. Please don’t make this mistake; remember to pick it up whenever you complete Douglas Bounty.

Jonathan Skrendel’s Office

You can find the second hint during the Skendrel Bros Bounty in High on Life. Skendrel Bros manage the laboratories which produce living drugs for the G3 cartel. Open the portals lab and head to the Zephyr Paradise. You will have to make some efforts to reach Skrendel’s office.

Once you are done with the Boss fight, look for the computer terminal around the office. Once you get your hands on the terminal, you will find the second hint. Pick it up to get another step closer to Dr. Gurgula in High on Life.
