Welcome at my Alien vs. Predator guide. It's the most comprehensive guide
I wrote yet and I'm quite happy with it. Normally, this version (3.08) is
the final version, which means I will not do any further updating unless
some of you submit some useful additions.

Have fun!

*** Version 3.11 (25-06-00)

- I seem to have mixed up some things. The marine demo walkthrough
covers the episode invasion, not derelict, so I changed that. Thanks
Helen for pointing that out.

- I added the information on all the older updates in a new section
called 'revision history', so all that information isn't in the
beginning of the guide.

II Marine Guide
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

2.1 Introduction
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

If you're new to 3D-shooters, the most obvious choice is the Marine. If
you played any other game, you'll find the two other races more
challenging and fun too play with. After all, the most important feature
of AVP are the alien & the predator, not the marine, because you can play
with that character in every ordinary 3d-shooter. Once you get the hang
of the marine, switch to the predator and then later to the alien.

This doesn't mean the alien is better than de predator, he's simply
more difficult to play with, but you can do some great attacks with every
character, it just depends on your way of playing.

If you put the three races together, the marine seems to be the weakest,
but that's until he has found some weapons. Only some really good guns
make him a dangerous foe. Unarmed, he has a minimal likelihood of survival
Still, he's the best choice for the beginning player, because he does the
most logical actions. Although the marine is quite easy to play with, the
early stages of the game may be a bit hard because there's no new weapon
behind each corner. You'll need to have a good aim with the pulse rifle
already in the beginning of the game, because one shot won't kill anything

The Marine is also quite slow compared to the Alien, so you should always
use long distance attacks and not let anyone get close to you.

Fox Interactive succeeded in balancing all three types of characters, so
choosing any character won't disappoint you. Simply choose the one
that suits your playing style best.

If you taunt when playing as the marine, you can draw the attention of
other marines (it's useful).

2.2 Weapons
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

The marine has balanced weapons: both for close & distance combat. In
open spaces, the marine are the most powerful of the three races. Just
make sure you enter no narrow spaces though.

M-41A Pulse Rifle
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Frequency: Common
Ammo Type: M309 10mm x 24 AP rounds, M40 grenades
Ammo Capacity: 99 rounds per clip
Fire #1: Standard AP rounds fire
Fire #2: Underslung M40 grenade launcher
Against aliens: Good (if you aim for their heads)
Against predators: Poor
Notes:

Although it's the default weapon, it's pretty good. Don't hold the
primary fire button long, because you'll waste all your ammo. Use
small controlled bursts to shoot off limbs from opponents.

It's no use aiming for opponents far away. At close distance, keep
walking backwards while aiming carefully for vital parts. If you can
keep your aim on an alien head for 1 full second, the alien will be
killed and you won't have much ammo.

When you find a dead marine lying on the ground, there's a 80%
chance he's carrying a pulse rifle.

When you're out of ammo, you can use the gun as a club.

This is NOT Quake, so don't try grenade-hopping (jump higher on top
of the explosion of the grenade), it won't work, the secondary fire
mode is similar to the secondary fire of the Submachine gun in Half
Life. Use the secondary fire when multiple enemies approach you and
they're quite close. The grenade has a strong blast radius that will
protect you from approaching enemies. Don't aim to low with the
secondary fire though, two metres is the minimum distance if you
don't want to hurt yourself.

Although it's the first weapon your find in the game, you'll often use
it, it's quite good and it's a good choice when you're walking in
small places and you don't want to waste the ammo of your minigun on
every opponent you encounter.

M-56 Smartgun
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Frequency: Uncommon
Ammo Type: M250 10mm x 28 caseless rounds
Ammo Capacity: 500 rounds per clip.
Fire #1: Auto-tracking mode
Fire #2: Free-fire mode (disable auto-tracking)
Against aliens: Very good
Against predators: Moderate
Notes:

The Smartgun is similar to the Pulse Rifle, but with more power and
a faster firing rate. The disadvantage is that it has no grenade
launcher.

The smartgun is an auto-tracking weapon (unless you press the
secondary fire mode). If no enemy is nearby, the crosshair will
be green. When an enemy comes into your sight, the crosshair will
turn red. That doesn't mean you just have to press "Fire" then to
hit the enemy, the crosshair will only help you aiming for opponents
so you can use it to locate enemies in dark rooms.

centre of the target. It will lock on a lot quicker. The tracking
system should not be used to target enemies, just see it as
fine-tuning your shot. The locking doesn't work like a missile lock
in flightsims, when you're locked on an enemy, that doesn't mean the
enemy can't avoid your shot anymore.

Especially in Single Player missions, this is the best weapon
against the alien facehuggers.

The auto-tracking mode is often useless against aliens at close
distance, because they move too fast, especially when they leap or
move laterally.

M240 Flamethrower
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Frequency: Uncommon
Ammo Type: Napalm canisters
Ammo Capacity: (100 per canister)
Fire #1: Standard fire
Fire #2: None
Against aliens: Moderate
Against predators: Very Poor
Notes:

Use the Incinerator at close distance to stop aliens or predators from
getting close to you. NEVER walk forward while using this gun,
because you risk walking into your own flames.

Concentrate your fire for more damage.

Your fuel depletes fast, so keep an eye on it. You don't have
to fire until opponents are killed, a little burst is usually enough
to ignite creatures.

When you set an opponent on fire, make sure not to touch him or you'll
be on fire too.

Once your opponent is ignited, run away and let him die. The moment
he's burning, your opponent still can attack. Just run away until he
explodes.

To put out the flames:

* Aliens: Run around quickly
* Marine: Use a medikit
* Predator: Use the medicomp

You can use this weapon also as a distraction. The moment your
opponent is on fire, he will stop attacking you and try to restore his

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯  Proximity Mines)

Frequency: Rare
Ammo Capacity: 6 of each grenade type
Fire #1: Standard fire
Against aliens: Very Good
Against predators: Moderate
Notes:

Throw them around corners or into populated rooms. Never use a
grenade in close combat unless you're a good strafer.

The grenade is the only weapon you can use to sneak on enemies. When
enemies are above or below you, just toss a grenade towards them and

The Normal Grenade will detonate after 3 seconds or when it touches
a creature.

The Fragment Grenade will also explode after a timer goes off, but
when it explodes, it will explode with four times the strength of a
normal grenade and it will shoot fragments in different directions.
These fragments can hurt you too, so don't stand too close.

The Proximity Grenades will stick in any surface. They explode with
the strength of a normal grenade when anything comes in their range.

In Singleplayer, grenades are not useful because Aliens are so fast,
you almost can't hit them with a grenade unless they approach you in
a straight line.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Frequency: Rare
Ammo Type: Anti-personnel rockets
Ammo Capacity: 1
Fire #1: Standard fire
Fire #2: None
Against aliens: Fatal
Against predators: Very Good
Notes:

Don't use this weapon at close distance, the radial damage will hurt
you too.

If the enemy you shot still lives after eating a rocket, quickly
switch to another weapon to kill him off, because it takes a long time

The SADAR is a very big weapon and it covers a big part of your view.
This isn't really a disadvantage, but still be careful for the blind
spot.

In Singleplayer, use the SADAR against multiple enemies or against
very strong ones (like the Predators and Xenoborgs) in open place. In
multiplayer, use the weapon in crowded rooms to score multiple frags
with one shot.

Minigun
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Frequency: Very rare
Ammo Type: Specifications unknown
Ammo Capacity: 800 rounds per belt
Fire #1: Standard fire
Fire #2: None
Against aliens: Fatal
Against predators: Fatal
Further Notes: The most lethal weapon in the game.
Notes:

Ammo depletes very fast, but it's the ultimate weapon in the game.

BIG Disadvantage: as soon as you start to shoot, you're not going to
be able to move, so choose a safe place to use the gun.

You will rip apart any alien that touches a bullet of the minigun, so
release the trigger then after hitting them once.

The Minigun kicks upward as you continue firing, so you must adjust
your aim downward to stay on the target (just like the Machinegun in
Quake 2)

In Singleplayer, you'll won't get your hands on this weapon very often
so save it for special encounters, like Predators and Predaliens. In
Multiplayer, use it whenever you get your hands on it, every frag
counts.

Sentry Gun
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

The Sentry Gun can be found on Singleplayer Levels. Use them to save
your ammo, but beware, they have a limited amount of ammo.

If you're really out of ammo and no enemies are nearby, you can also
lure enemies further on to the sentry gun and then finish them off.

2.3 Equipment
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Motion Detector
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

The motion detector is a hand held radar you can use to track opponents
in front of you. Anything that moves will be displayed, including doors,
flares and body parts.

Use this radar often, because you need to use it to track possible
aliens in the dark environments around you. If you track one, don't
hesitate: shoot in the dark and use the lightning effects of your gun
to find out where the bastard is hidden. It's also very useful to
track down cloaked predators. The only disadvantage is its range
(approx. 30 metres). It also does not take into consideration the
elevation of enemy signals. For example, a signal might show an
opponent approximately 2 metres ahead of the Marine but this does not
mean the enemy is directly in front of him, it could be on a higher or
lower level altogether, or travelling along a crawlspace between decks.

You can only use the motion tracker in the normal vision mode, in other
vision modes, you can see it on the screen, but it won't display any
information.

Spin around regularly to check for any movement behind you too, the
motion detector only scans in front of you, not behind you. Enemies will

Don't rely on your motion detector too much. It should never happen
that an Alien is leaping right for you face because you were too busy
studying the dots on the motion detector.

Image Intensifier
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

The image magnifier is also useful. Use it in dark places to get a
much better view of the environment. Use this device to spot aliens you
can't see. Remember you can't use the motion scanner while the image
intensifier is activated. You also shouldn't use it combined with flares
because the combination will blind you, too much light.

The Image Intensifier is a poor solution compared to the vision modes
of the alien and the predator, but neither solution is perfect.

I use the image intensifier more often than flares, because flares

Because you need the image intensifier so often, playing as the marine,
I usually put it on all the time (unless you enter very bright places,
but almost never happens). You get used to it very quickly, but it's
also a sad thing: because you see everything green all the time, you
can never see the beautiful environment and the great lightning effect.
It's really too bad Fox Interactive balanced the dark\bright rooms,
although it's very realistic.

Jetpack
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

The jetpack will lift you up to higher levels. You can also use it to
slow down your fall. It's not default equipment, you can only use it in
certain bonus missions.

You will get the jetpack in all bonus levels that originally were alien
levels. Otherwise, you wouldn't be able to finish the level if you
couldn't reach higher places like the alien can.

Flares
¯¯¯¯¯¯

The Phosphoric Flares will light the environment. You have an infinite
number of them, but you can only throw 4 of them at the time. Use them
in the many, many dark environments to spot aliens. NEVER use it in
combination with the image intensifier, you will be blinded. You can
carry an unlimited amount of flares.

The flares are also very useful to spot aliens in dark corners. Just
throw a lot of flares towards the ceiling (they stick to any surface
they touch) and within a second (you can throw two flares in a second),
you can light the whole environment and leave your opponents open for
an attack.

You can only throw four flares at a time, you have to wait until one
has been put out until you can use another one.

For a fun effect, throw a flare towards an alien. The flare will not
hurt the alien, but it will be really hard to hide when you're a
walking flashlight.

You can also use this tactic in multiplayer to annoy opponents.

Medikits
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Medikits will give you up to 100% Health. You can't take a medikit with
you, you'll find them along with dead bodies. If you have about 98%,
don't take the medikit at once, but wait until you're hurt more badly.
It will only restore your health up to 100, not higher.

Armor
¯¯¯¯¯

Armor will give you up to 100% Armor. Similar to the medikits, take it
only when you're % is very low. You'll find it next to dead marine
bodies.

2.4 Vision Modes
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

The marine has 2 vision modes

Normal vision mode
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

This is the normal, default mode, everything looks like any other 3D
game. You will need flares all the time to light the dark environments.
Your sight is very limited, so you don't see any movements in shadows
or dark environments. Use this view only to look how the aliens die and
how beautiful the graphics are. It's useless.

Still, Frederic Poirier pointed something interesting out: although
the normal vision mode is very limited for the marine in dark
environments, the combination of the normal vision mode with flares is
quite effective too in the appropriate situations. With the enhanced
vision mode, it isn't fun to play. Everything looks green and nothing
you see seems realistic. Playing with the normal vision mode is more
exciting and it makes you feel you're walking in a normal, living world
instead of a set of rooms in a game.

It's the same for the predator and the alien.

Thanks for pointing this out, Frederic.

Enhanced vision mode (image intensifier)
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

If you enable the image intensifier, you finally get to see something
in the dark corners of the game. When you enter a place filled with
light or you use flares, you will be blinded by the amount of light.
You also can't use the motion tracker while the second vision mode is
enabled.

Since Aliens vs. Predator is very dark, you can play with the thing on
all the time (I do so), but you'll miss the great graphics of the
environment (and the image intensifier makes everything just plain
green)

2.5 Tactics
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Try to stay in open spaces as much as you can. It's also in your advantage
to avoid places with a minimum of light. Otherwise, use flares to light
the environment before you enter, both the predator and the alien have
much more advantage in the darkness.

Try to keep a situation overview. Never walk in small spaces (especially
not when you have the SADAR equipped). Stay in open places where you can
easily take down enemies. Aliens won't be able to sneak on you either then
If you should get trapped in a cramped space, use the flamethrower. It
offers a great distraction and causes other species to retreat.

Line up with your back against the wall and check there's no possible
way someone can attack you from behind. Just don't forget about the
ceiling (aliens) and sound with no movement (cloaked predators)

When entering a new room, always use the motion detector and then check
the ceiling and walls for holes where aliens may be hiding.

Do everything to avoid close combat with the alien. It's better to take
a little damage and keep an alien away from you than engage close combat.
The predator's weapons work best at mid-range, so don't let him get that
close.

The Marine needs every single weapon he can find, because his firepower is

If you're looking down a steep drop-off, lob grenades over the edge.
In cramped spaces, use the flamethrower. Use the smartgun to shred
enemies from distance. You really need to known all your weapons and
which one to use where. Soon, you'll automatically select the appropriate
weapon for a certain situation.

Marines vs. Aliens
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

The best weapons to defeat aliens are the pulse rifle and the minigun.
Especially the minigun is powerful, because it has a fast firing rate.
This means the alien won't bleed so fast (the alien's blood is like
acid and can hurt you). Don't use the Rocket Launcher against aliens in
small rooms. A hit will spray a lot of acid around and you will lose
too much health. The auto-tracking of the smartgun is useless. A good
alien player can move so fast you cannot track him.

It's better to lose a lot of ammo while firing at an alien from distance
than to let him close. Close combat will always be in your disadvantage.

In the beginning, it's quite easy to take out aliens who pop up in front
of your nose. Later, when they attack in group and are hidden in the
dark (hanging on the ceiling), they're much harder to take out.

If you can't handle the situation anymore and you decide to flee, you
have to understand your limitations. You can't just turn your back to
an alien and flee, you can never match his speed. So, when you're sure
you want to flee, run away backwards while covering your back.
Especially the rocket launcher has the large blast radius you need.

Marines vs. Predators
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Predators are easier to take out than aliens. They don't move so fast,
so it's easier to track them and get a good shot. Still, they have some
heavy armour, so it will take more shots to take them out. The
predator's weapons work best at mid-range distance, so don't let them
come that close.

The best weapon against predators is the minigun. It does fast damage
before he's able to reach you. Never use the incinerator, because the
predator has fire resistant armor. The SADAR is quite powerful too, but
it's often easy for Predators to avoid the rockets with some strafing.

Try to finish off the predator at once. If you hear the "whahahaha"
sound from the predator 'before he activates his self-destruction mode),
kill it. If you can't, then you're doomed. You cannot run away from a
self-destruct. Very lame: The explosion is put right on the place where
you walk on the time of detonation... The alien walks fast enough to
avoid this. You can just wait for him to blow up, and then run like
hell, and you won't be dead (Thanks Jelmer Baas for pointing out)

Marines vs. Marines
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Battles between marines tend to be short, because of the powerful
weapons. One direct hit of a SADAR rocket does an awful lot of damage.
Usually, the best strafer wins the battle, because marines will attack
each other from distance. Try to avoid all gunfire and take out the
other marine with your minigun or smartgun.

Hiding in the dark works well against marines, because you can take

Verdict
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

I don't like playing with the marine much. The fact you have to run
around with a motion scanner all the time only makes you scared. You're
the prey, you're the one hunted down and I don't like that feeling.

Never use the marine for close distance attacks, he has a great firing
range. The predator can kill you at once with his best weapons and a
sneak attack from an alien will cause so much damage you won't survive.

There are medikits and armor, but it depletes so fast that you have to
look for new ones very often. Especially in the early stages of the game
you're only trying to survive and looking for ammo, but later on, when
you get the good weapons, you stand a chance.

If you play deathmatches, don't enter any small hallways where an alien
or a predator might be hidden. You'll always get fragged. Look for open
places where you can get a good shot from distance at other players. If
you have to enter small rooms, work in teams and cover each other. (One
uses the motion scanner while the other aims). If you're alone in a
small room, quickly shoot inside the room and retreat at once. If
someone comes after you then, move backwards while firing at him. If
you hurt him enough, he will retreat to find some health.

Don't forget the use of flares, they can make all environments brighter,
so enemies will get a hard time to hide in the dark.

2.6 Demo walkthrough
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

The level from the marine demo actually is included in the full
version of the game, but since I can't use anchors in a text file to
hop to the right location of the walkthrough, I just copied it into a
new section for your ease. In the full version, this is Episode 3:
Invasion

You wake up after a frightening nightmare, you grab your pulse rifle and
prepare for the mission. Listen to the commander first, there are some
problems and you have to get out alive. Go through the door and go right
You won't be able to enter any door. At a certain point, you see a glass
box. Break it and pull the switch. Go through the door and up the
stairs.

You reach a balcony. Walk to the other side and take the elevator down.
Your commander instructs you again, there are some serious problems. Hit
the switch and go through the door. Go through the next door and go left

You'll now enter a room with eggs. Don't worry, they can't hatch. Go to
the right, follow it to the end and press the button. Go through the
doors and follow the tunnel. You'll hear the commander again. Go left
and up the elevator.

Normally, you'll meet the first aliens here. Go straight down the tunnel
and up the elevator. Turn right and keep walking forward. At the first
thee forks, continue straight. Go to the middle of the tower and into
the next tunnel. Go down the hallway and turn left at the fork. Go right
and hit the switch, it will open a door far below you.

Now return until you reach the big ledge. On your right, you'll be able
to see a big open place. Now, in the middle of that big ledge, there's
a gap to the left. Stand on the floor in the gap and jump up.
There's an elevator that will take you down. Go to the right and you
will reach an artifact (your commander will talk to you again).

Take the entrance to the left and keep walking forward. At the end, turn
left and stand on the small gap in the wall. Jump up and an elevator
will take you down (this is a room very similar to one in the film
Aliens).

Down, there's a small entrance in the wall that will give access to a
new room, it's to the right of the big creature in the middle. At the
end of the tunnel, go down the elevator. Then follow the tunnel and the
level will end.

2.7 Full version walkthrough
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

I received an incredibly amount of questions from people stuck in the game
so I decided to write a walkthrough. Please, do not mail me for
information on a level that's not included in the walkthrough yet. Just
wait until I've finished it. In the walkthrough, I don't mention much
items such as medikits & armor, you usually can't miss them. There's no
use telling about the exact location of enemies either, since their
position varies from training to director's cut and they often appear at
random places.

Advance through the levels as quickly as possible. Aliens will keep
respawning and you have a limited amount of ammo. There's no use killing
them all.

Some elevators have no button to activate them. Just jump up and they will
be activated.

B Episode II: Colony
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Go up the stairs and straight forward. Your commander will instruct you
again. You have to restore the generator. Go up the elevator. You reach
an open area, advance here as quickly as possible, there are lots of
aliens and you'll need the ammo. Leave the West lock and turn right.
Walk forward and enter the tunnel on the right. Keep walking forward
(you'll see an entrance to the right but don't go there). At the end of
the tunnel, you see some lockers, a chair and a glass window. Shoot the
glass and jump down.

Hit the four switches and wait for the door to open. The power will go
back online. Go upstairs and then right. Go back to the glass but this
time go through the open door. Follow the catwalks all the way around,
take the lift up, keep going. Duck to get through the vent, pick up the
Smartgun. Go back through the vent and around the catwalks, riding the
lift down.

You have to leave the tunnel you've just entered now. It's a bit tricky,
because a horde of aliens appears at the beginning at the tunnel if you
want to leave it. Don't let them push you back too far, or you can start
over again. Block their attack and leave the tunnel. Go right and right
at once. You'll find a dead marine with a pulse rifle and some armour.

Return to the open place again and walk right to the North Lock. Throw
the switch to the left of the door and the door will open. Straight
ahead there's a health pack and a pulse rifle. Now (when facing the
exit through the north lock), go left. At the end of the tunnel, crouch
through the small entrance to the right. Go up the stairs and take out
the two aliens. Watch for your back, it's possible some aliens followed
you through the small entrance. There's some armour on top of the stairs
Go back down a bit, to the base of the stairs and crouch through the
next small entrance. You reach a room with four garbage cans.

Go to the left, you can find a health pack there. Then go to the door to
the right, it will open as you approach it. Follow the tunnel to the end
and turn right. Go up the lift, it will take you to Level 3. If you're a
little short on ammo, you can stop at the second floor and get some
health and a pulse rifle.

At Level 3, walk past the hole in the floor and turn right. Turn right
again and go up the stairs. Open the door to the Main Ops room to the
right. Throw the five switches and your commander will give you a new
objective. When facing the fifth switch, next to the computer screen,
open the door to the left and go left. At the end, go right. You'll
see some stairs now.

Go down the stairs and enter the small entrance to the right, you'll
find a smartgun. Don't start using the smartgun already, you'll need
it further this level. Go further down the stairs to Level 2. Now follow
the tunnel until you see a door with the word "Medilab" next to it.
There's another health pack through the far right door. Now go through
the Medilab door.

Go through the near right door and get the Flamethrower near the end of
the open room.  Go through the next medlab door, you'll see a hole in
the floor in front of another door. If you have some saves left, save
your game here. In the next room on the left, there will be some
face-huggers. They're extremely dangerous and you'll be dead at once if
they can reach you.

Approach the door and as soon as it opens, aim for the little critters
with your smartgun. Continue dong this until they're all dead (you won't
hear any sound anymore). Then jump over the hole in the floor and enter
the room were the face-huggers were.

In the back of the room, there's a pulse rifle and some armour in a pool
of blood. Grab the Manual Bypass, it's at a random location in the room.
Then, exit the medilab and look down the hole in the floor. You have to
jump down and it's possible to do it without getting hit. Inside the
hole, you can see a small ledge. Jump on it and jump further down. Take
the entrance through the office on the left. Go out of the room and go
left once again. Go through the tunnel and turn right to go outside.

Now, you're back in the open space. Walk forward and then right. You
will reach a big door, it's the south lock. Open the big door. You now
reach a ravine. Follow the ravine and avoid the aliens underway (if
you're quick enough, there's no reason to kill them). At the end of the
ravine, you'll see an APC. Approach it to end the level.

C Episode III: Invasion
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

This is a difficult level: there are lots and lots of aliens and face
huggers. Use your pulse gun to take out the aliens and save your
smartgun for the face huggers. The structure of the level is quite
difficult, but I'll try to explain it.

You need to shut down the cooling systems. These cooling systems are
controlled by five wheels. When you have turned the five wheels, you
can proceed and exit the level.

Wheel 1: Exit your APC through the door. Don't wait until your commander
has finished talking or to aliens will rush in. Go up the stairs and
through the door on the left. At the fork, turn right. Go through the
door and then up the stairs on the right. Go to the other side and
through the door at the end. You access a small tunnel. Go through the
tunnel. In the next room, you can find some armor under the stairs. Go
up the stairs then.

Follow the hallway and go through the door. Go right, you can find a
health pack and a pulse rifle in the tunnel. Go through the door and
turn left, then go through the next door and turn right. Go through the
tunnel and up the tiny stairs. If you go through the door, you find
some items: a flamethrower, a health pack and some armor. It's in the
left corner. Go the far left side of the computer, there's a wheel you
can turn.

Go back out the door and through the tunnel. Don't go through the door
on the left, walk forward towards the blue light and go one level down.
In front of you, on the ledge to the other side, you should see a wheel
attached to the right wall. You have to be very quick here. Jump to the
other wall and turn the wheel. Then, quickly jump back to the other side
and run up the stairs. A bridge will be lowered. Jump over it (while
it's still lowering, it gives you extra time) and enter the door on the
right. There's a time limit on this action, so you can only try it once.
You find some armor, a health pack and some pulse rifles.

Wheel 2: Return through the door and go down the winding stairs to the
lowest point. On the lowest level, there's an elevator. Jump and it
will take you down. We encounter a tricky part here, there are some
face huggers in company of a few aliens. It's almost impossible to get
rid of the face huggers without the smartgun, so we'll have to try
another tactic.

Run through the tunnel (go right) and then straight ahead. Avoid all
contact and don't shoot the face huggers. As your run straight ahead,
some doors will open in front of you (the door consist of vertical
bars). Run through the door and you reach a room with two big
canisters. Run up the stairs and turn around. From there, shoot all
aliens, the face huggers can't follow you on the stairs. Walk to the
right and get the health pack & smartgun. Now, use the smartgun to
take out the face huggers below you. When they're killed (you don't
hear no sound anymore), stand close to the first canisters and press
the 'use' key to turn the wheel.

Wheel 3: Go back down and go through the door. Turn left and move
towards the gate, it will open. Enter the tunnel and follow it until
you can enter a passage on the right. New mission orders will appear
on top of the screen. Go right and ride the lift up. In the next room,
go to the other side and ride it up. Follow the small ledge. Go left
into the pipe a short way to get the pulse rifle, then go up the stairs
on the right.

There's a health pack in the back. Grab it and go up the stairs. Now,
before entering the next tunnel, turn around. Near the ceiling, there
are two yellow lights. Shoot the second light from the left and a bridge
will be lowered. Cross the bridge and go through the door. Jump on the
stairs below you. Enter the door at the bottom. Be careful when going
down, because you drop down and land in the middle of a bunch of aliens
& face huggers.

In the next room, collect the health pack and the flamethrower. Turn the
two wheels, two more to go.

Wheel 4: Go back through the door and up the stairs.  At the four-way
fork go straight. Ignore the doors on the sides. When you reach a fork,
turn right. Follow the corridor until you get to the health pack. Ignore
the doors on the sides and turn left. Go straight and then up the stairs
on the left. On the middle of the catwalk, there's another wheel. Turn
it and the cooling systems have been shut down. The only thing left to
do is getting out.

Go down the stairs and follow the tunnel until you reach a fork. Turn
left. Ignore all the doors on the sides and walk straight forward. At
the next fork, turn right. You see a big door with a bright green light
above it. Enter the door and follow the tunnel. You reach a small gap.
Jump over the gap and open the door on the right. Ride the elevator up
and you reach a landing spot. Wait a while and an aircraft will pick you
up.

D Episode IV: Orbital
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

This is rather a short mission, compared to Episode 3, but it's quite
tough. You don't have solve any puzzles here, there's just one way to
get to the exit. In this level, you will meet two new enemies: the
predators & the Xenoborg. You don't have to kill them, but run past
them quickly then.

Walk forward into the air lock. After a while, the other side will open.
Listen to your mission and look to the right then. The docked ship will
come loose and fly away in space. Go to the end of the walkway and
flip the switch. The bar will rise and you can open the door. Walk
forward, but get back to the tunnel when you hear the alien hissing
sounds. There's a predator out there and he will deal with the aliens.
An alien will probably pop up behind you, so finish him.

Enter through the door again. Don't try to kill the predator, it's
possible, but you'll waste to much ammo. Walk straight past him, he
won't hurt you or come after you normally and walk through the gate in
front of you. Around the corner, you find a SADAR rocket launcher and
two pulse rifles. Deal with the two enemies and leave the room. Avoid
the predator again and go right, through the gate down the stairs at
once.

Below the stairs, you find a medikit. If aliens followed you, finish
them all off now. Go through the door on the right and walk straight
while ignoring all the doors on the sides. Walk through the next door
and keep going straight. At the end, flip the switch and go through the
door. Follow the tunnel, it will bend to the right a bit. In the next
room, there will be some aliens on the lower level. Walk to the left
door and the commander will talk to you again.

Extra: if you want more good weapons, jump down a level to where the
aliens are and kill them. Then take the elevator up. In the next room,
door where the commander gave you instructions.

From where we were: flip the switch and go through the door. In the
next room, there's a medikit on the right. Run up the stairs and turn
right, go through the door. You'll stand on the edge of a bigger room
below you. Wait for the elevator to rise, jump on it and ride it down.

There's another Xenoborg here and you can kill it to test your SADAR
(but you can run past it too if you want), just make sure he doesn't
get a laser lock on you. Run to the corner at the far end and hook
around it. Go up the stairs, you can ride another lift up. When the
elevator reaches its highest point, stand on the edge close to the
bars and they will open.

To the right, you can find some armor and pulse rifles. Go across the
walkway. Take out the predator with your SADAR. Go to the door and
flip the switch. There's another Xenoborg here. You can kill it as you
want, but it's possible to run past him if he doesn't get a laser lock
on you. Walk to the other side of the room and throw the switch (strafe
a bit while throwing the switch and waiting for the door to open, or
you'll be an easy target for the Xenoborg). Run through the open door
and drop down. Walk straight forward and step into the escape pod.

E Episode V: Tyrargo
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Walk forward and listen to the orders of your commander. Flip the switch
to the right and go through the door. Walk to the back of the cargo bay
up the little slope on the left. Flip the two switches on the wall and
you gain access to the door on the left. Walk to the back of the room,
you find a pulse rifle, a smartgun and some armor. Go through the door
on the left.

Turn left and walk straight. Go around the corner. Some aliens will rush
towards you together with a face hugger. Take them out. Go to the end
of the room. Turn left, go to the end of the room and throw the switch
to open the door. Turn right and follow the tunnel until you reach
another cryo-sleeping room. Enter it, but don't go to the end. Near
the end, go to the left and you reach a locker room. Go to the shower
room on the left to grab the smartgun & armor. Now return to the locker
room.

At the end of the room, to the right, there's a small grate. Shoot it
and enter the small passage. Turn left and go down the stairs. At the
end of the passage, break the grate and enter the next room. You reach
the dining room of the ship. Go to the left and grab the flamethrower.

Go through the door on the right. Shoot the barrels in the back and go
left. On the back wall, flip the switch on the right to activate the
lift. Go stand on the lift and ride it up. Go straight, a bit to the
right and back straight again. On the left, next to the window, you
find some armor. Your commander will give you some new orders. Go around
the corner on the left and flip the switch. Turn around and go right
whenever you can. You have now access to that big door with the two
blue lights next to it. Go through it and you enter the generator room.

Go down the slope of stairs and walk through the big doors at the end.
As soon as you're inside, turn around and run back to the previous room.

right around the corner. To the left, there's a health pack and some
armor. Go up the stairs on the right and go left at the end. Flip the
switch and enter the door on the right.

If you think you just got through the toughest part, prepare yourself:
the next halls are overpopulated with aliens. They pop up from
every possible spot: ceiling, behind you, in front of you, ... Use the
smartgun to kill them one by one or get them all together and use the
secondary fire of the pulse rifle (grenade) to get rid of the bunch at
once. At the beginning of the halls, you find a grenade launcher. After
the first set of halls, you find a health pack and some armor. Make your
way to the end and flip the switch. Go through the door

Go down the lift. Next to the pipes on the right, there's a SADAR. Enter
the next room. This is a very though part. There's a predator inside
here and a lot of aliens. Run to the right and get the Minigun. Next,
kill all the aliens with the smartgun. Make sure you keep moving or
the predator will take you out. When are the aliens are killed, equip
the SADAR and take out the predator with one shot. Your commander will
give you an update on the mission. In the meantime, a PredAlien appears.
doors up the stairs for a very short time.

Enter the next hallway and take out all the aliens you meet. Grab the
armor. At the end of the room, flip the switch to the left and ride the
elevator up. You're near the end of the level now, there are only some
praetorians to deal with. Take them out with the SADAR or the minigun.

Go through the tunnel at the other end and follow it until you see a
switch. Flip it and get back to the front of the room. Stand on the
elevator and jump up, it will take you down. Jump down to end the level.

F Episode VI: Hangar
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

This is the final marine level, you have to kill the queen here. As you
enter the hangar, the queen will be in the back of the room. As she
notices you, she will start throwing boxes at you. Strafe left or right
to avoid them. There's no use firing at her. The only extra gun you can
find is the flamethrower (when playing on training difficulty, when
playing on realistic or director's cut, the flaemthrower isn't there).
No matter what you do, you cannot kill her.

There are a pack of rockets at each side of the room. If you can get the
queen near one of these rockets and you shoot them, the queen can be
stunned for a short time. When playing on the "training" difficulty,
there are two packs of rockets. On "realistic", there's only one and
on Director's cut, there are no packs of rockets at all.

Since there is no way to kill her with your weapons, you'll have to
find an alternative way. First, look for an airlock panel on the ground,
it's near the entrance. Press the button and the panel will open,
revealing two buttons. Now shoot the line of grates next to the panel.
Jump inside the small tunnel. In the middle of the tunnel, you'll find
a button. Press it and a panel on the floor of the tunnel will open.
Shoot the two oxygen bars inside. Get out of the tunnel by one of the
stairs and run back to the airlock panels. Press the two arrow panels
and you'll hear a siren. An airlock panel will be opened. Run to the
right, to the small entrance in the wall with the buttons. Press the
button in the back and a glass wall will move in front of you. The air
lock will suck everything in space, including the queen. Just wait some
more time and the level ends.

G Bonus level 1: The temple
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

You finally have a jetpack on this mission. You'll need it a lot, so
when you reach rooms with no exit, look up for an exit you can reach

there). Kill all the aliens in the room and use your jetpack to fly up.
Go through the green entrance and get the medikit. Now follow the
winding tunnel up. You reach a big room with an alien statue in the
middle. Jump down and use your jetpack to land safely. Get the armor
and the flamethrower. Go to the other side of the room though the
entrance.

There are face huggers here, so be careful. At the end of the tunnel
there's a way down. First take out the face hugger and jump down then.
Again, use your jetpack to land safely. You find the smartgun and a
health pack. Use your jetpack to get up the long tunnel, you'll reach
a new area.

It's doesn't matter what side you choose, but say, let's go to the

everything becomes much brighter.

Go back though the hole you jumped down (with your jetpack) and go left.
Go up the stairs and through the next door. Take the elevator and get up
In the next room, get the minigun, the armor & the health pack.

Now, there are 4 entrances and your aim is to control the four control
panels. Go to an entrance that has the word "guard" next to the door
(north guard, west guard, ...). Don't enter any medilabs, there's
nothing to do there. Inside the guard rooms, look for the four control
panels. They all are similar, it's an electronic board. If you're unsure
what's the control panel, shoot them all. You can only destroy the
control panel, so it's easy to find out what's the right one. Once you
have destroyed the four panels, the message "a door has opened

When you stand in the middle, use your jetpack and fly straight up. Go
up as far as you can and when you reach the highest point, go through
the entrance up the slope to the right. There might be a praetorian
here, so watch out. When you enter the next tunnel, a ship will crash
the window. Walk towards the ship to end the level.

H Bonus Level 2: The Vaults

J Bonus Level 4: Gateway
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

This was originally an alien mission, so you can use the jetpack again.
You start in one of a set of nine rooms. They're connected to each other
through glass windows. Go through the glass on the left (shoot it) and
get the smartgun in the next room. Continue going through the glass at
the left side of each room then until you're in a room with a gap in the
ceiling (it's seven to eight rooms from the room you started in). Use
your jetpack to fly up. In the next room, go through the entrance with
the grate next to it (use your jetpack to slow down your fall) and
you're on top of a high column with entrances to the left and the right.
Don't go left or right but go down the big column (with your jetpack).

thrower there. Next, go through the entrance that reads "junction 1".
You'll stand in front of a grate, don't break it yet, it's a small
room there with two facehuggers and some aliens. Let the turret take
them out. When you hear no alien sound anymore, break the grate and go
to the next room. Jump behind the turret and you'll fall a long way down
Use your jetpack to slow down your fall. In the next room, there's a
predalien. Take him out and exit to the left then through the door. Go
through the next door.

Go to the left and walk to the end of the hallway. There are two small
doors here. Take the right one and go down the long shaft for some
armour. Exit through the door at the bottom, but watch out for the
Xenoborg. You don't have enough ammo to kill him (and you can't afford
to spend some much), so just run past him and avoid his laser. He will
not follow you. Choose one of the doors at the end (they lead to the
same room). Go to the back of the room, there's a SADAR there and a
medikit. Go back now and kill the Xenoborg. You have to kill him or
the next shaft doors won't open . In the SADAR room, take the left shaft
and fly down with your jetpack. There are three floors and you start
from the third. Fly to the bottom of the shaft and go through the door.

bottom. Walk over the bridge towards your ship to end the mission.

K Bonus Level 5: Waterfall
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

The final bonus level. You get some help from marines here, but they're
extremely dumb, they won't kill an alien at all, they simply get killed
themselves. The only way they're useful to you is use them as a
distraction. While the aliens attack them, use that moment to kill the
aliens.

From the beginning, walk through the door and you see a marine getting
killed. Kill the two aliens and press the button on the left. Stand on
the elevator and ride it down. Leave the elevator when you're down and
follow the path and then up the stairs. Just go through the door and
walk to the left. Grab the two pulse rifles from the right side of
the entrance and go through the entrance, up the stairs then. You reach

Checkpoint 2.

Kill all the aliens, then hop over the bar and get the medikit from the
back. There's a nasty praetorian in here up the stairs. Take it out as
quickly as possible. Go up the stairs and at the end to the right into
the tunnel. You reach checkpoint 1.

In the booth to the right, there's some armour. Hop over the bar and go
through the door at the end of the room. You reach two bridges. Cross
the first bridge, follow the U-turn and cross the other bridge. Walk
across the passage and into the tunnel. Go down the stairs and go
through the door. Push the button to your right. Don't enter the next
room yet, first take out the two face huggers in the water. Enter the
room then and kill the two praetorians en the alien that come from the
left. Grab the medikit and follow the stairs down.

To the right, there's a turret that will take out all aliens that come
from your right. Don't go past the turret yet. Walk straight forward
and go down the stairs. Walk through the door and press the button on
the right. At the end, go left then and walk straight forward through
the tunnel. In the next room, get the SADAR next to the right wall and
return to the passage with the turret. Walk past the turret and let it
left towards the crates. At the end, get the armor. Jump to the platform
on the right for some more ammo for the minigun. Return to the top of
the stairs then and follow the tunnel up the stairs. In the next area,
jump down from the platform. There's only a predator left now. If you're
low on health, press the button and run through the door. Turn left and
get the medikit. Kill the predator then and the level ends.

III Alien Guide
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

3.1 Introduction
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

If you want to rush in every room and kill everyone off at once, there's
no use in choosing the alien. If you play as an alien, you have to be
careful all the time and try to hide as much as you can. Playing as an
alien allows you to scare your opponents a lot. It's really fun when
you're hanging on a wall and you see a marine passing below you, shivering
as he holds his motion scanner in the complete darkness. As you move a
little, the motion scanner beeps and the marine is glued in his tracks.
Before he even has the time to find out where you are, you jump down on
top of the poor fellow and you use your razor-sharp claws to rip out his
eyes, filled with fear and disbelief. I love it :)

The big advantage of the Alien is undoubtedly his speed. You can move
incredibly fast towards enemies, without giving them the chance to react.
The view of the alien is also a bit strange, you have a convex view
(called the fish bowl effect), but it doesn't affect gameplay much. Some
people think this view is annoying, but in fact, it's a great advantage,
because the view allows you to the left and the right without moving your

There are 6 stadia of development for aliens: Facehugger, Alien (regular
kind), Advanced Strain (or "Praetorian"), Predator Hybrid (or "Predalien")
Queen, and Xenoborg (a man-made abomination).

If you taunt when playing as the Alien, it's possible to scare marines and
they'll flee.

Because you have a hard exoskeleton, you cannot take any falling damage.
Although this kind or armour seems very good, it leaves you very
vulnerable to all kinds of weapons.

If you play as the alien, you won't have to push much buttons, that just
doesn't seem logical. Usually, you find a control panel near a door. If
you break the control panel, the door will open. Don't use the operate
key to break it, just slash it with your claws.

3.2 Weapons
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Note: You can't switch weapons when you're an alien, because there are
no different weapons to use.

Sharp claws
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Fire #1: Quick strike
Fire #2: (see Tail Spike)
Against marines: Very Good
Against predators: Moderate
Notes:

Use your claws at close distance while sneaking up on a marine. A quick
tap will cause a double strike. Holding down the primary fire button
will work as a rapid combo of strikes.

Don't underestimate the power of your claws. Although you have to get
very close, they can do a lot of damage. You can do 4 to 5 hits in a
second, which can finish off a healthy marine at once.

Tail Spike
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Fire #1: (see Sharp Claws)
Fire #2: Quick Strike (hold down for Hard Strike)
Against marines: Very Good (Hard Strike is Fatal)
Against predators: Very Good (Hard Strike is Fatal)
Notes:

Use the claws on marines and the tail on the predator. A few strong
blows will usually kill them, it only takes some time to recharge for
another blow.

You can also claw dead bodies for some extra health, but, of course,
this will not work on Director's Cut difficulty.

Secondary Jaws
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Fire #1: Decapitate
Fire #2: N/A
Against marines: Fatal
Against predators: Very poor
Notes:

Remember the movie? Did you like the moment when a tiny, little mouth
came out the Alien's jaws? This is it!

This attack is useless against androids & turrets

The Jaw Attack requires certain conditions to use: you have to line up
the head of an enemy in the centre part of your screen and then wait
until the jaws appear. Press the Primary attack button to decapitate

With the secondary jaws, you can drain health from opponents if you can
decapitate them, especially marines. Keep in mind, though, Jaw attacks
will not work on Androids and Turrets.

You can also use this attack on dead bodies to get extra health. Of
course, the bodies may not be decapitated already.

Acid Blood
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

If you get hit at close distance, try to touch your opponents and your
your blood (which is actually acid) will cause much damage.

3.3 Abilities
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Climb
¯¯¯¯¯

By crouching, the alien can climb up walls and ceilings when it runs
towards them. You really have to keep your sense of direction while
climbing on walls, because you can get confused about what's the ceiling
and what's the floor. If you really lost your orientation, just press
the crouch key and you'll drop down on the floor. Don't worry about
falling damage, the alien can't get any.

Pounce
¯¯¯¯¯¯

Crouching prior to a jump allows Aliens to jump extremely high. You can
use this tactic to flee from enemies where they can't follow you. You
will use this tactic more than you may suspect, because the alien always
has to perform surprise attacks. When the opponent discovers you before
you get the chance to hurt him and he start firing, you're only chance
is to flee. Never engage close combat with an opponent that is aware of

Super jump
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

You know when you just stand there as a Alien, and press the jump
button, you will only jump 3-4m off the ground. Well, try this: press
the key you set as LOOK UP and look ALL the way up. Then crouch, and
hit the jump button. YOU WILL JUMP HIGHER THAN NORMAL!!!! It's pretty
cool, just try it! It's like you jumped 50-60m off the ground.
(submitted by Helen)

3.4 Vision Modes
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

There are two vision Modes for the Alien

Normal vision mode
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

This is the default vision, you'll see everything like you were a human.
Humans have a blue aura, aliens a red, and predators a blue one. This
halo, makes it impossible for enemies to hide.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Number two is the Navigation Sense. It enables you to see in the darkest
other creatures will be removed. You can also see in more bright areas,
only the very strong light sources will blur your vision.

3.5 Tactics
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Aliens vs Marines
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

There's no use trying to kill a marine from distance (you can't). He has
lots of powerful weapons with a great firing range and you have nothing
to shoot back with. The only way to kill them is to sneak up on them.
Don't forget that they have a motion scanner to track you down (about
thirty metres). If you get hit at close range, move as close as you can
to the marine because the acid from your body will cause a lot of extra
damage.

The most effective way to deal with the marine is to hide and wait for
a chance to take him out. Hiding is no sign of being a lamer when you
play as the alien, it's the only way to survive. Whenever you see a
chance to attack him, do so and try to finish him off. If he discovers
you before you can finish him off, flee and try again later.

If you get hurt to much, retreat in a place where the marine can't
follow you (very high of very steep places).

You're an alien, so don't get used to run over the floors all the time,
you may as well be a marine or a predator then. Think vertically and
use different angles to attack your foes.

Never attack when a marine spots you. If he sees you, you will fail to
kill him. The only way to take out a marine is get him by surprise. His
weapons are way too strong.

Aliens vs Predators
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

It's the same story as fighting marines. You're no good from some
distance and you should only try to kill them using fast sneaking
attacks. Especially coordinated attacks from different sides gets
everyone down (in multiplayer).

You can track down cloaked enemies, they will have a pheromone green
"aura". This is extremely effective, because lots of predators think
they're a bit invincible when they're cloaked.

Although the predator still has some good firepower, you can consider
close combat now and then if you have enough health. It's rather tricky
to take out a predator with a suprise attack, because it's very unlikely
you will kill him with a single blow. Finish him off at close distance
then.

Aliens vs Aliens
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Alien fights include a lot of scratching, clawing and circling. Make
circle around the other alien while you keep him in your view (circle
strafing). Move fast and vary your directions to confuse the other alien
Only when you're in a good position, attack. Usually, the alien that
does the first solid blow wins the fight.

Verdict
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

The alien asks for special tactics. Advanced players can make good use
of it. Especially hanging on walls in very useful. If you play as an
alien, everything looks a bit further away than it actually is, but
luckily, you have this great speed that allows you to get rid of

One of the best tactics is to get a marine behind you, enter a new room
and quickly jump on the wall. As soon as the marine enters the room (you
will have created a gap in distance because you're much faster), you
take him out from behind (and you even get some extra health if you can
decapitate him). Of course, this only works with beginning players,
too much chance of falling into a trap like this one. Sometimes, it's
also possible to gain extra health when you chop the dead body of the
marine. This only works on the 'training' and 'realistic' difficulty,
on 'director's cut', you can't get extra health that way.

In fight, crawling across walls and ceilings opens a whole new set of
their playing style and check every single spot in the room.

You can't jump on walls running normally, so you have to stand still,
crouch and then move on the wall. Then, no surface will be safe for you

If you need to attack a team of marines, try to leave the shadows for a
moment to finish off one, rather than trying to kill them all off after
each other. This will make the marines feel really scared (and you feel
really great)

If you meet a marine from quite some distance, try to strafe left and
right to avoid his fire while moving forward quickly. You will travel at
high speed at him. This will cause the marine to retreat.

You should always try to remain hidden. A soon as you're discovered,
Marines & Predators with weapons will take you out in no time. Use
surprise effect and quickly retreat then. You can say this is not
possible in Multiplayer, because Deathmatching is a fast challenge, but
I've seen to much armed players getting killed by master alien players,
so you're very wrong :)

Playing as the alien has another advantage, because you don't have
any weapons that need ammo or energy that needs to be recharged, you
don't have to look for sources all the time. You can fully concentrate
on slaying foes. If you're almost dead, find yourself a marine and use
the secondary jaws for some extra health.

3.6 Demo walkthrough
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

The level from the alien demo actually is included in the full
version of the game, but since I can't use anchors in a text file to
hop to the right location of the walkthrough, I just copied it into a
new section for your ease. In the full version, this is Bonus Level 1:
Invasion

You start in a small pool. Climb the wall in front of you and go
straight ahead at the intersection then. Jump down the hole and follow
the tunnel. Go left and follow the tunnel. Take the first entrance on
your left. Drop down and you're in the generator room. Destroy it, all
lights will go out and there will be some little emergency lights later.

Go through the exit and kill the civilians in the next room. Walk
straight forward between the big barrels in this room and go through
the entrance on the left. Take the first one right then (you enter a
tunnel with sidewalls that bend to the right). Follow it to the left. At
the end, a gate will open in front of you. Pass it and turn left. You
reach a room with an elevator on the left. Climb the walls to the top of
the room and go through the entrance then.

Take the first turn on the right and go through the door. Below you,
there are some marines, just ignore them. Follow the right wall and go
through the door on the right. You enter a room with some computers. Go
through the door on the left. Follow the stairs and go through the small
tunnel. In the next room, jump down and go through the entrance in the
back left. Take out the turret from behind. Turn left and right then,
you reach the place where the marine mission with the APC started.

Walk to the back and look to the ceiling to the left, there's a hole
there. Enter the hole and follow the tunnel. Drop down in the next room.
You hear the sound of a turret to the right. Go the other way (left) and
follow the halls until you reach a door. Go through the door and walk to
the middle of the room. Look to the ceiling to the left here, there's a
hole. Get inside and you reach a room with a little water. Climb the
shaft up to end the level.

3.7 Full version walkthrough
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

I received an incredibly amount of questions from people stuck in the game
so I decided to write a walkthrough. Please, do not mail me for
information on a level that's not included in the walkthrough yet. Just
wait until I've finished it. There's no use telling about the exact
location of enemies, because they vary from training to director's cut and
often appear at random places.

Always switch to the appropriate vision mode for each race.

Additions and corrections are welcome at ravager@pandora.be

A Episode 1: Temple
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Walk straight ahead through the small tunnel. In the next room, walk
straight ahead, climb up the wall and go through the next tunnel (there
is some yellow-coloured lights here). There's a branch here but both
ways lead to the same place, an room with a big burning pillar in the
middle. Walk straight ahead past the pillar and you see two pillars
near the back wall. Climb one of the pillars and at the top, go
inside (they're hollow). Follow the tunnel into the next room.

There's a grate in the wall in this room. Destroy it with your claws and
get inside. In the next room, you can go left or right, but I'll go
right to keep things clear. Climb the small platform and walk between
the two stone columns. Go up the next platform and at the end, look to
the right, there's a burning column here. Remember this place, you'll
have to come back here later. Turn left then. Follow the tunnel and you
reach another room. You can look outside here through the window. Go
through the tunnel to the right and drop down in the hole at the end of
the tunnel. There are two big burning pillars in this room, make sure
not to touch them.

There are two support blocks above the fires. Climb to the ceiling and
hit the bricks with your claws. They will drop down and extinguish the
fires. In the ceiling there will be another entrance, but you don't
have to go in there, it was another way to lead this area (where I
told you to go right instead of left to keep things clear). Now return
to the burning pillar I told you to keep in mind, it will be gone. Drop
down in the hole (there are two levels). Go down then, but keep hanging
on the ceiling. Look down, there will be some marines below you. Wait
for the right time and take them out then.

There are two exits here: the south & east guard and the north & west
guard (read the names) next to the entrances. The two other entrances,
Lab 1 & 2, are locked. Enter the south guard entrance. Turn right and
go up the stairs. You can go left and right again. Go left and turn
right. You reach a room with a gap in the back. Jump over the back,
there are four grates in the back wall here. Destroy the second grate
from the right and enter the tunnel (you will need to turn navigation
sense on). It's a bit difficult to explain here but I'll explain. Your
aim is to destroy four security panels to open the doors to Lab 1 & 2
(two panels for each lab). There's an easy way to destroy the panels,
but the turrets will hurt you. In the tunnel, go straight ahead
and turn right. At the end of the tunnel, go up and right at once
(break the grate). There are more grates to be broken here. Just go
straight ahead, it's a long tunnel. At the end, go up and right again
(break the grate). Go right again and you enter a normal, technical
room again (if you lost me while explaining, just look until you found
what I mentioned, you just have to follow the grates, if you have broken
them all and entered the tunnel behind them, you will reach the area you
have to find)). There's a sign that reads "Lab 2". You have to destroy
the security panel here. First, take out the marines and the turret on
the other side if there is one. Next, destroy the panel (it has some
pink colours, looks futuristic and there's a little red light at the
bottom of it). It's the only panel in the room you can destroy. You'll
get a message when it's destroyed.

Don't return through the small tunnel, but take the other way. There's
a sign that reads "West Guard". Turn left and jump down to the left then
Return to the area with the platform in the middle and walk to the other
side. Return to the area with the four grates. Break the second
grate from the left. Follow the same way (but swap right with left) and
you'll reach a similar area. Destroy the other control panel and the
doors to Lab 2 will be open. The room you're in right now should be
called "North Guard".

Return to the room with the four grates again and take the second grate
to the left or right. Each one of the will lead to another guard room.
Just try to look for new grates now and you'll reach an area called
"Lab 1" (security). Destroy the third control panel and do the same for
the final panel. Now, Labs 1 & 2 can be accessed.

* Note: as you probably noticed, it's quite complicated and there's an
easier way to destroy the four panels, just go to the room left
and right from the room with the four grates to find the control
panels at once without entering the panels. Still, there are
some turrets there sometime and you may get hurt.

Anyway, return to the main room with the platform. The light above the
entrance to Lab 1 & 2 should be green. Go to Lab 1 first. There are
some androids inside, take them out first. There are six entrances with
a caution sign in this room. Inside the six entrances, there's a control
panel you can break, it will open the small rooms. Sometimes, there's
a civilian inside you can use to keep your health status high. Orange
pipes connect the computers in the central room. There are five of them,
destroy them all. Go to Lab 2 then and do the same. When all pipes are
broken, there will be a lot of marines in the area. Hurry to the main
room with the platform and ride it down.

Go to the door on the right. Break the control panel next to the door
and enter. In the next room, ride the elevator down (or jump down). Go
through the door on the right. At the end of the tunnel, jump down (or
use the elevator). Through the opening on the right, there will be some
turrets. Break the two blocks on each side of the room to close the
main door. If you want to be sure the turrets don't hit you, use the
ceiling to reach the other side of the room. After the doors have
closed, run through the tunnel on the left.

You have to do exactly the same thing here. Close the doors by hitting
the blocks on each side of the room. After the second door has closed,
go to the small opening (it's a stone slab that moves if you approach
it) in the floor in front of the big door (there was a civilian standing
there). Jump in the opening and you reach a hole in the floor. Jump down
walk forward and climb up the other tunnel. At the end, you reach a
room with a big alien statue. Run to the other side of the room and
climb up the wall until you reach a ledge. Run to the left and follow
the spiralling tunnel down. Jump down then to finish the level.

B Episode 2: Escape
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

wall in front of you. In the next room, go between the two pillars and
crouch up on the back wall. Go to the top of the room. There, drop down
on the walkway. Walk towards the wall and a secret passage will open.

Go through it and you will enter the base. Go left and go up through
the small vent. Follow the walkway and go through the next way. Follow
the walkway to the end and jump down there (to the right). There's a
door on the right, go through it opens (it opens as you approach the
door). There's another walkway above you in this room. Use the wall to
get on it and go right through the vent then. Jump down, you're in the
bathroom now. Go through the door on the right.

Go straight forward, you see a glass window on the right with some
stairs in front of it. Walk straight forward. Just past the window,
look to the ceiling, there's a walkway above you. Use the wall to get
on it. Go through the vent in the back, follow the walkway in the next
room and go through the other vent. Jump down in the next room. Go
through the door on the right. Walk straight forward and you'll go
through another two doors. In the last room, climb to the vent in the
left wall. Follow the walkway in the next room and go through the next
vent. Jump down in the next room and take out all marines. Go right,
after passing two doors, you'll be in a room with a sealed door.

Go through the vent in the left wall. Jump down in the next room and
go through the door on the left. Go through the door straight ahead and
kill all the marines there (you'll get a message here about the
evacuation of eggs). Go through the door on the right. In the next room,
there is an elevator on the left. Don't ride it up, because there's a
marine up there with a grenade launcher. Go up the walls on the right
side of the elevator and take out the marine with the grenade launcher.
Walk straight forward and turn left then. At the end, look to the right,
you see a glass window. Break the glass and follow the vent then to
finish the level.

C Episode 3: Ferarco
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

You'll be behind some barrels when the level starts. Move closely to the
right past the barrels and take out the marine quickly. Make sure he
doesn't see you or he'll shoot the barrels and they'll kill you. Walk
to the left then. Turn left and walk to the end, the door in front of
you will close. Go to the left and then turn right. Walk up the ladder
in front of you. Follow the air duct to the end and destroy the grate
to enter the next room. Destroy the pipes behind you (you usually
destroy them by smashing the grate). Go to the left. In the next room,
go through the entrance to the left. Walk straight ahead through the
next room then. At the intersection, go right and return through the
door that closed in front of you.

It will be open now. Enter it and go up the stairs on the right, up
to Deck 2. Destroy the two pipes attached to the wall there. The door
behind you opens. Walk through it and kill the android & marines inside.
Walk further and the door in front of you closes. Destroy the small
panel to the right of the door to open it. Enter the next room and
wait a moment, the doors on the sides will open. Watch out, there may be
a marine with grenades in here.

Enter the corridor to the left and go left again in the next room, you
are in the dining room now. There's a walkway above you, use the walls
to get on it. In the middle of the walkway, look up, there's a grate.
Smash it and get inside the airduct. Follow it to the end and smash the
grate. Watch out, there may be a marine in here. At the end, jump down
and walk to the left. Smash the panel to the right of the door to open
it.

In the next room, there's a ladder in the middle. Walk straight past it
and go through the entrance in the back. Smash the grate on the left
wall and get inside the airduct. After the first door, you'll see a
grate on the left. Smash the grate and follow the airduct to the end.
Smash the grate and jump down. You're in the cryo sleeping chambers now.
Go through the door and smash the panel to the right. Go through it and
go right then. Turn left at once and walk until you see a glass window
on your left. Break the glass and go through it (if you should walk past
the glass, you would get shot by the turrets further in the tunnel).
In the next room, go to the door on the right and smash the panel to the
right of the door to open it. Walk to the end. Destroy the turrets to
the right if you want and turn left then. Follow the tunnel until you
reach an intersection.

Turn left and walk to the door. Smash the panel to the left to the door
and you enter another cryo sleeping room. Climb to the ceiling, smash
the grate and enter the airduct. Follow it and destroy the grate at the
end. Enter the next room, there's a small tunnel here with a lots of
grates on the sides. If there's a marine in front of you, use the
tunnels on the sides to take him out. Walk to the back of the room then
and destroy the grate there. Follow it and you'll be on top of a room.

Jump down and take out the android here. Run through the corridor
and look to the right in the next room, you see some barrels with a
marine behind it. Use the ceiling to get past the barrels and kill the
marine. Go through the entrance to the left. In the next room, run
straight ahead through the vent. At the end, break the grate on the
right and get in the next room. Go to the right and jump down the shaft.
There's a pipe to the right, but it's covered. I'm showing you this
place because you'll have to return here later. Climb back up the shaft
and go through the door to the right. In the next room (with the ladder)
walk straight ahead past it. Just walk straight ahead then and at the
end of the walkway, you see a window with a chair on a platform. A bit
in front of the platform, look up, there's a hole in the ceiling. Get
inside and climb it up. At the top, go through the entrance and break
the panel next to the door to get into the next room.

Walk up the stairs to the left. Turn right and jump down. Go to the
room straight ahead and break the panel. Go further and break another
panel. Go through the door and you reach the main computer of the ship
(MOTHER). Break all the screens in the room. A timer will be activated,
you have to get back to the covered pipe now. Go back through the
two doors, up the stairs and jump down. Go back through the pipe and
turn right then. Walk straight ahead until you reach the room with the
ladder in the middle again. Walk past it into the next room. Jump in the
shaft on the left and go through the pipe on the right then (the cover
has gone). At the end, turn left to get on the escape vessel.

D Episode 4: Gateway
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

You have to act quickly when starting this mission. Run forward at once
and go up the wall. Get on the platform above you. Then, hit the panel
to the right of the door to open it. Go through it. (If you don't do
this fast enough, the ground will open and you will be sucked into
space). You don't seem to be able to go further now. Look to the ceiling
there's a grate. Break it and enter the small tunnel. Just go straight
forward. Somewhere, some turrets will shoot you. Just ignore them and go
further. At the end, destroy the grate, drop down and destroy the
turrets in front of you.

There are two doors on the sides here. Break the control panels next
to them to open the doors. Both doors lead to the same place, but we'll
take the left door for a change. Use the ceiling to get past the barrels
and destroy the grate behind them. Get inside the tunnel and follow it
to the next room. Go up the sidewalls in this room and you'll find two
entrances. Take either one of them, they lead to the same place.

Follow the entrance until you reach two elevators. Go to the elevator
on the left and destroy the power box to the left. The door opens and
you can enter the shaft. Go up one level and break the grate to get
through. There's a door on each side of the room. Break the controls
panels next to each door and destroy the control panel in each room next
to the fans to disable them. Go back in the shaft then and go up one
level. Break the grate and get through.

Go to the door in the back and destroy the control panel to the right.
Go through the door and destroy the control panel inside (next to the
fan) to disable the fan. Leave the room. Once you're back in the room
with the ladder, face the ladder from the room you just left and climb
the ladder. Break the grate behind you then and jump into the next room.
Destroy the turrets on each side. (If you should have taken the ladder
from the other side or go up through the shaft, the turrets would have
killed you).

Go to either passage and go through the door. There are more elevators
here. Destroy the power box to the right elevator and climb it one
level up. There, smash the control panel next to the door and kill the
marine behind it. Walk straight forward. Go through the first door on
the right (watch out, there's a minigunner behind it). In the next area,
look to the right, there's a big fan there. First, destroy the for power
boxes to the left (two on each pillar) and jump past the fan then (it
will have slowed down). Run through the tunnel and break the grate at
the end. Destroy the two power boxes in this room and watch out, a
marine with a grenade launcher can pop up out of one of the entrances.

You're in Junction 1 now. Look to the signs and run to Junction 4,
destroy the two power boxes and run to Junction 3. Destroy the two
power boxes and run to Junction 2. There, destroy the final two power
boxes. Run back to Junction 4 now. Get on the ceiling and destroy the
grate. Follow the tunnel and you reach an area called "Main 5".

Look to the wall with the words "Main 5" on it. Climb it straight up
(past all the fans) and enter the small entrance right in front of
you. (There are 4 entrances, but only 1 of them leads to the right
location, the other entrances lead to a grate you can't break with a
marine behind it, try the other ones then).

If you found the right entrance, go up the slope and you see two
small fans in the wall. Drop down the hole in the floor. There are 9
rooms here, connected by glass windows. There are a lot of entrances on
the sides too here, just ignore them. Just break all the glass windows
and keep proceeding. In the final room, go through the room in the
ceiling. Go down the slope, you see a fan in front of you. Destroy the
two power boxes on the right and the fan will slow down. Go past the
fan and smash the grate on the left. Follow the airduct and enter the
next room then.

You have to be quite fast here. You have to go through the door in front
of you, but there are some bars in front of the entrance. There are some
minigunners here you have to deal with and the walls on the sides are
closing in. Quickly go up the left wall and destroy the computers. Do
the same on the other side. You'll get the message "Join us" and hear
some alien hissing sounds. The bars will be removed from the entrance
now. Go through the door to end the level.

E Episode 5: Earthbound
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

From the start, go straight ahead. You'll meet some marines and
civilians. Jump in the shaft to the right (Shaft 1). Walk to Shaft 2.
Look to the top of Shaft 2, there's a barrel stuck on top of it. Squeeze
through the small hole next to the barrel and climb up Shaft 2 to the
top. Walk to the other side and drop down the shaft. Break the grate
at the bottom and jump down. Follow the corridor. There's a glass window
in front of you. First, break the computer hanging on the ceiling to
open the door further. Next, destroy the glass window and proceed.

Walk further and destroy the computer on the right. Go around the corner
to the right then and jump down through the door on the left. There are
eight control boxes here, four on each side of the room. Destroy all
the boxes and the big door "Decompression Hazard Dock 1" on the side
will open. Go through the door. Climb through the open airduct in the
left wall. Follow the tunnel until you reach a grate.

Break it. In the higher difficulty levels, there's a turret here, so
don't jump down. Look to the other side, there's another entrance there.
Do a crouched leap to the other side and proceed through the airduct.
If you do it right, you don't get hurt much. Follow the next airduct
and jump down in the next room. Go to the right and two doors will
open. Destroy the four power boxes on each side and the four big fans
will be disabled.

Go to the right and use the walls to get inside the tunnel past the big
fan. Follow it and you reach a room. Get to the ceiling and get past the
fan. In the next room, go to the left and walk past the fan blades. At
the end of the tunnel, there's a grate. Smash it and jump down in the
next room. Go to the other side of the room and smash the grate on the
ceiling. Follow the set of tunnels until you reach another grate.

Smash it and jump down in the next room. Go through the small entrance
to the left and smash the grates. Enter the next room and destroy the
four power boxes. Turn around and break the glass. The fan on the left
is slowing down. Get past and follow the tunnel. At the end, jump
down and enter the tunnel on the other side of the room. Follow it to
the end and go right then. Enter the next tunnel and jump out at the
end. You reach an intersection now.

Destroy the power boxes on the right. Go past the fan through the right
and follow the tunnel until you drop down in another room. Go left then
and enter the first airduct on the right (it's the only one with a
covered entrance (a grate). At the end, quickly jump on the big box, it
will start moving to the left. If you stay on the box, the turrets a
bit further won't be able to hit you. When the box stops, jump down
and take out the turrets from behind.

Walk to the left of the box, there's a small entrance in the wall on the
left there. Use the walls to get there. Go to the right and through the
entrance. The light will turn red and you'll hear something about a
predator attack. Destroy the glass in front of you enter climb up the
shaft in the back. In the next area, you'll meet a predator. Take him
out with your tail and bite his head off to prevent him of doing his
self-destruct. On higher difficulties, you'll also meet a predator
before climbing up the shaft. Turn left and walk to the end to finish
the level.

F Bonus Level 1: Invasion
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

You start in a small pool. Climb the wall in front of you and go
straight ahead at the intersection then. Jump down the hole and follow
the tunnel. Go left and follow the tunnel. Take the first entrance on
your left. Drop down and you're in the generator room. Destroy it, all
lights will go out and there will be some little emergency lights later.

Go through the exit and kill the civilians in the next room. Walk
straight forward between the big barrels in this room and go through
the entrance on the left. Take the first one right then (you enter a
tunnel with sidewalls that bend to the right). Follow it to the left. At
the end, a gate will open in front of you. Pass it and turn left. You
reach a room with an elevator on the left. Climb the walls to the top of
the room and go through the entrance then.

Take the first turn on the right and go through the door. Below you,
there are some marines, just ignore them. Follow the right wall and go
through the door on the right. You enter a room with some computers. Go
through the door on the left. Follow the stairs and go through the small
tunnel. In the next room, jump down and go through the entrance in the
back left. Take out the turret from behind. Turn left and right then,
you reach the place where the marine mission with the APC started.

Walk to the back and look to the ceiling to the left, there's a hole
there. Enter the hole and follow the tunnel. Drop down in the next room.
You hear the sound of a turret to the right. Go the other way (left) and
follow the halls until you reach a door. Go through the door and walk to
the middle of the room. Look to the ceiling to the left here, there's a
hole. Get inside and you reach a room with a little water. Climb the
shaft up to end the level.

G Bonus Level 2: Derelict
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

You start in the room with the man on the cannon in the middle, you're
inside the alien artifact. Go up the hole where the elevator normally
is (it's out of order). Follow the tunnel then and leave the artifact to
the right.

The door in front of you is closed. Go up the wall in front of the door
and enter the tunnel. Go left, right and follow the long catwalk to the
end. Follow the tunnel to the left and you enter a computer room. Walk
through it and follow the tunnel into the generator room with two fans
below the catwalk you're walking on. Go straight forward and turn left.
In the middle of this tunnel (you'll hear some turret sounds), look up,
there's a grate in the ceiling. Break it and enter the tunnel. Ignore
the first grate (there's a turret below) and walk further to the second
grate. Break it and jump down. Take out the turret to the left. Turn
around then and you'll see another turret at the end of the tunnel.
Walk towards it, but take the first entrance to the right. It does a U-
turn and you can take out two turrets from behind. Walk forward and you
are back in the tunnel where you just jumped out of the tunnel on the
ceiling. Walk to the left and follow the tunnel to a computer room.

Jump down and go to the right. Destroy the two turrets guarding the
entrance and proceed through the tunnel. You'll see the alien artifact.
Jump down and go through the first entrance to the right. Follow the
tunnel and you'll be in front of a closed door. Climb to the ceiling,
destroy the grate and follow the tunnel. You'll see a grate below you.
Destroy the grate, jump down and take out everyone in the room.
One of the civilians is a head of the company. There's one more to take
out now. Climb back inside the airduct and go left. You'll see another
grate in the floor. Jump down and take out everyone in this area, one
the mission ends.

H Bonus Level 3: Tyrargo
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

This is a very confusing level because there are lots of airducts here.
You have to kill three officers in this level. There's one in the dining
room, in the bay where the predator attacks you in the marine level and
one in the room where the marine's mission starts. This doesn't help
you much unless you know the marine level very well. It's possible to
kill the three officers without entering the airducts, but there will
be a lot of resistance then with some nasty turrets.

From the start, go right and then right again. Jump down in the first
hole in the ground (it's on the left). You land in the cargo bay behind
a turret. Take out the turret and then all the marines in the room, one
of them is an officer. Climb back through the hole from where you came.
Go back to the main airduct and continue your way you where going.

You pass another hole in the floor, then there's an entrance to the left
Enter and you'll pass another hole in the floor. Jump down in the next
hole and you'll land in the shower. Leave the shower and go left. To the
right, past the lockers, there's a grate in the wall. Smash the grate
and follow it into the dining room. Kill the officer and get back to
the shower and then to the main airduct.

From the hole you just left, look to the left, you'll see some yellow
light at the end of the tunnel. Jump to the end of the tunnel and jump
into the final hole there. In this room, destroy the turret and kill the
final officer (he's also sometimes in the room to the right). A predator
will appear. Kill him and make sure to bite his head off before he
activates his self-destruct. The mission ends.

I Bonus Level 4: Caverns
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

From where you start, jump down and walk forward. There's a small tunnel
on the left and the right here. It doesn't matter which one you chose,
but take the left one now. There's an APC in this room. Walk past it
and go through the entrance in front of you. You'll enter a room with
a small catwalk over a pit with spikes. Climb on one of the walls and go
through the hole in the ceiling. Follow the tunnel and drop down in the
next room. Walk to the door in front of you and use your claws to get
through. You enter the generator room. Destroy the power generators on
the right and you'll get a message that the doors are open. Now return
through the tunnel and you'll land on the small catwalk. Go to the
other side now and go through the doors (they're open now).

Turn left and go through the entrance on the left then. Walk through
the APC and through the door behind it then. Turn right and go through
the doors on the left. Finally, go through the big doors on the right
and you're in a room with another APC. Walk past the APC and go up the
cliff in the back. Go through the entrance and follow it onto a room
with a computer on the middle. Go past it through the entrance on the
other side of the room. At the end, destroy the turret and look to the
down and go right twice, you're behind the turret you just saw. Take
it out and run up the stairs. In the next room, a predator will jump
down from the right. Kill him and go up the elevator shaft then to end
the level.

J Bonus Level 5: Fury 161
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Walk forward to enter the lava room. Climb the wall on the right (if you
go left, turrets will shoot you). Now go past the pipe on the left so
you can take out the turret from behind. Follow the wall to the right
then and you'll see an entrance. Inside, press the button (the activate
key, this button also disables the sentry gun if you didn't destroy it).
Then, take the elevator up on the other side. Follow the path around the
big pillar (it bends to the left) and go up the stairs then. Go to the
left, down the stairs then. Jump down and go through the door.

Enter the first room to the left and press the button, it deactivates
the turret a little further. Continue your way and turn left. Enter the
next room. Go through the left and wait for the elevator to come down.
Ride the elevator up. Jump down to the bottom of the room and take out
the predator (he somewhere down there). Look for the hole in the floor
then and jump down. There's a door with a red light and one with a
green light here. Go through the door with the green light and walk to
the left tunnel. Hit the first barrels and the chain reaction will
disable the fan further in the tunnel. Walk past the fan. Run through
the entrance straight ahead and go through the door.

Past the door, push the button to the left, next to the door, this
disables another turret. Turn around, go back through the door and turn
left now. Follow the hallway and follow the stairs on the left down.
Walk through the entrance and kill all the marines in this room. The
only thing left to then is kill the predator. Take him out to end the
level.

IV Predator Guide
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

4.1 Introduction
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

The predator is some sort of combinations of the two other races. He has
some powerful weapons to take out enemies (marine), but on the other hand,
he also has a cloaking device he can use to sneak up on unaware enemies
(alien). You'll feel invulnerable in the early stages of the game, because
you can take out any enemy using the cloaking technique. The only problem
is that cloaking drains your energy source, and you get health and ammo
from the very same source. You can replenish this source by breaking open
control boxes though. It seems like the predator cannot take any falling
damage from less than 10 metres. It's not the alien, though, jumping from
great heights will cause him to die.

You're not completely invisible for the other races. The Alien can spot
you using his navigation sense vision mode, and the Marine can spot you,
if you're standing in a certain angle of the light. Try to keep in the
dark.

Playing as a predator is really fun while using the shoulder cannon. You
can use this cannon to remove limbs from marines. The disc can also be
used for this, especially to behead people.

If you should run out of energy, use your spear gun, it has its own ammo
supply. The only problem is that you have three red laser dots that
reveal your position to opponents, but you'll just have to live with
that. In fact, you should never have an energy problem because you energy
source slowly regenerates. When you're hurt badly, wait a bit in a dark
corner and heal yourself with your medicomp. You don't need a god mode
or unlimited weapons, you already have them!

It's also useful to use your cloaking technique if you're almost out
of power. Cloak yourself to travel to a power source nearby and replenish

Keep in mind that you uncloak when using certain weapons.

If you taunt when playing as the predator, there's a chance you will draw
aliens towards you.

4.2 Weapons
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

You start with all the weapons except the energy pistol and the disc.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Frequency: N/A
Ammo Type: None
Ammo Capacity: N/A
Fire #1: Quick strike
Fire #2: Hard strike (or trophy decapitation)
Against aliens: Moderate
Against marines: Good
Notes:

This is your main weapon. It's pretty weak, but if you sneak up on
someone and hold secondary fire for a power hit, it can be quite
effective. This doesn't affect your power source. Also, you don't
uncloak if you use this weapon.

Line up a marine's dead body's head and use the power punch
(secondary fire with wristblades) to get the marine's skull. It's a
trophy. You'll howl when you get one.

This weapon should be your last resort. It's always hard to hit
someone using the wristblades (especially the aliens with their acid
blood). It's almost impossible to kill aliens with it. The same goes
for marines, they will start firing before you get the chance to get
close. Only cloaking can give advantage.

Spear Gun
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Frequency: N/A
Ammo Type: Barbed spears
Ammo Capacity: (1)
Fire #1: Standard fire
Fire #2: None
Against aliens: Moderate (head shots Fatal)
Against marines: Very Good (head shots Fatal)
Notes:

The gun has a strong recoil.

This gun kills an marine at once. Keep in mind that you uncloak while
using this weapon. The ammo doesn't drain your field energy, it has
its own ammo supply.

It's the ideal weapon for predators to snipe.

If you aim for the head, it's possible it severe it. Then you'll see
a spear stuck into a wall with a head impaled on it.

Don't use the speargun as your default weapon, because you have a
limited amount of spears and there's no ammo for them (unless you
respawn in multiplayer). Use them only when you need them.

Shoulder Cannon (aka Plasmacaster)
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Frequency: N/A
Ammo Type: Plasma charges
Ammo Capacity: Dependant on energy supply
Fire #1: Standard fire (holding down fire button increases charge
potency)

Fire #2: Stored charge (works similar to Fire #1 except shot is stored
for later use)

Against aliens: Very Good
Against marines: Fatal
Further Notes:

Requires vision modes for targeting.

This is a useful weapon while cloaking because it doesn't affect it.
Use it from distance and keep in mind that it automatically targets
enemies. If you select a specific life form vision (marines: thermal,
aliens: electric), the plasma caster will only target that life form.
If you use the secondary fire mode, you save the current charge for
later use.

This weapon was much more powerful in the movies, you'll need more
than one shot to finish someone off.

With the Primary Fire, you charge plasma (hold the key) and then
release it (release the key). With the secondary fire, you store more
plasma (hold the key) and then you can release it (press the primary
fire key).

Energy Pistol
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Frequency: N/A
Ammo Type: Electrical energy pulses
Ammo Capacity: Dependant on energy supply
Fire #1: Standard fire
Fire #2: Electrical pulse orb
Against aliens: Good
Against marines: Good
Notes:

This weapon does splash damage, and the best way to use it is against
face huggers because any face hugger hit by the blast radius will be
killed. Don't stand to close while using this gun because the splash
damage from the gun can damage you too.

The marine requires a direct hit to kill him (and you can get a
trophy), while a shot or two (direct hits) takes predators down.

You will uncloak using this weapon.

This is a very useful weapon against aliens. Aliens move so fast it's
extremely hard to get a direct hit, so you have to guess a bit and
shoot where you think the alien may be. The splash damage will do the
rest for you.

This weapon looks very cool when you use it against marines. You just
electrify them and they die with much pain. (I love it ...)

Homing Throwing Disc
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Frequency: N/A
Ammo Type: N/A
Ammo Capacity: N/A (1)
Fire #1: Throw disk
Fire #2: Recall disk (costs energy: 7 to 12 energy bars)
Against Aliens: Fatal It's kills the final Xenoborg with only 1 hit !)
Against Marines: Fatal
Notes:

Go into the desired vision mode to target your opponent. The disc will
keep flying in the air until it has hit the target or something else.

You can kill multiple enemies with one disc.

The disc sometimes bounces of the walls and returns to you, but it
also gets stuck a lot. Switch to the Predtech Mode (green) then and
try if you can see it. If not, recall it (at the cost of energy)

You only have one disc, so don't go doing strange this with it (like
eating it or throwing it into dark pits).

In multiplayer, it's also possible to get multiple disks. Throw your
own disc, then while it's travelling through the air, grab another
Predator's disc that is stuck in the wall, then let yours return.
This will give you more discs.

4.3 Equipment
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Cloaking Field
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

You can use the cloaking field to make yourself invisible, but don't do
it too often, because it creates quite a gap in your power source.
You're not completely invisible now. If any of the three species uses
the proper vision mode, they will spot you.

I've noticed that you have wrote about that "bug" in AvP. The one
where you said the marines sometimes act like you're uncloaked when
you are actually cloaked (playing as the predator). My friend told
me because of his cloaking device he bends light and curves it
around him. Well, if you have ever seen him move, it looks weird.
You can kinda tell he's there. To sum it up, moving around cloaked a
lot produces a greater risk of been noticed. So, DON'T MOVE WHEN
YOU ARE CLOAKED!!!

That is true, I forgot about the part about only reflecting light,
but also even in total darkness, they can sometimes see the laser
pointer from your shoulder cannon and speargun. That is how marines
notice me in some levels, because I generally use the spear gun, but
the bending of light is true, it works less in light and when moving
and also in water, because they can see your footsteps and the water
shorts your cloaking system for a short time.

Zoom Mode
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

There also a Zoom Mode. You can zoom up to 3 times. In combination with
the spear gun, this makes you a dangerous sniper. Aim for the head.
Always switch to the proper vision mode for the proper species while
sniping, it will make the aiming a lot easier.

Medicomp
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

If you use the medicomp for extra health, do this at a safe place,
because regenerating health will cause you to leave your cloaking mode
and other life form visions. Secondary fire puts out flames. The
Medicomp requires 15-20 bars for the primary healing, no matter how hurt
you are, and always brings your life status to full. (The amount it
takes depends on what your current level is. Full takes 15, having 20
takes 20, having fewer than 20 means you have to wait until you get 20.)
Secondary only takes 1.

(Medicomp information added by DarkRaver (DarkRaver@dlfrag.com)

Spear Jump (hidden ability)
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Use the spear gun and point it down. Jump and when at full hight, shoot,
you jump 2x the height. Good for the hive where you can jump onto that
small ledge on the roof. It's also great for sniping

Grappling Hook (only in Bonus Missions)
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

One of the most useful items is the grappling hook, it's a shame you can
only use it in the bonus missions. The nice thing about the it is that
you can use it several times in the course of one climb if you are fast
enough. For example, if you are in a deep shaft with no footholds or
ledges, you can fire the Hook up to a point in the shaft's wall, ascend
to that point, then very quickly deactivate the Hook and fire it further
up the shaft again just as you start to fall back down. By repeatedly
doing this, you can theoretically climb any distance. When there's no
other way to navigate the level, you'll have to use the grappling hook
that way.

You will get the grappling hook in all bonus levels that originally
were alien levels. Otherwise, you wouldn't be able to finish the level
if you couldn't reach higher places like the alien can.

4.4 Vision Modes
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

The predator has 4 vision modes, that's 2 more than the other races.

Normal View
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

This is the default view, like the Marine and the Alien have.

Thermal View
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Number 2 is the Thermal View. In this vision mode, anything that
gives off heat stands out. When you see a human, he will have the
colours of the rainbow corresponding to their heat emission. In this
mode, auto-tracking weapons will track humans.

Electrical View
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Number 3 is the Electrical View. In the second Vision Mode, everything
looks dark red, but the aliens look bright white. Auto-tracking weapons
will automatically track aliens in this mode.

Predtech View
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

This mode is for tracking other predators. Everything will look green,
but other predators will look white with dark green highlights. Again,
you will be able to track predators in this mode.

4.5 Tactics
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Predators vs Marines
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

The best weapon against marines is undoubtedly the shoulder cannon for
instant death. If you have enough energy, cloak yourself, switch to the
Thermal View (Blue) and use the Shoulder Cannon (auto aim). This is the
gun you should always be running around with, don't forget to keep an
eye on your power source, though. If your power source gets to low,
switch to the spear gun. Cloaking works fine too, but keep in mind that
marines still can be spot you, if you're standing in a certain angle of
the light.

Predators vs Aliens
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

The best weapon against aliens is the spear gun. If you use it, you will
launch the alien away and he can't spray blood on you. Never use the
wristblades against aliens. You will cause them to spray so much acid
you'll die at once.

By the way, the alien's claws are way much better than your wristblades
(unless you charge them). There's also another reason why you should
keep the alien from getting close to you, many people charge their tail
and then rush towards opponents to give them a final blow, make sure
this doesn't happen to you.

Although it doesn't seem to be likely, the predator runs as fast as the
alien (this is quite clear in multiplayer games). The predator looks
much slower, but the alien's convex viewing angle causes everything to
move much faster. This means you can try to chase aliens, they won't be
able to create a gap (Thanks Jelmer Baas for pointing this out).

Verdict
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Choose the predator if you don't like sneaking much. In my opinion,
the predator is better than the marine, because he can sneak too. The
only problem is your power source and the 3 red laser dots that reveal
your position. Still, it wouldn't surprise me if most players play as
the predator. The Alien really should be left to the specialists.

If there are a lot of aliens and marines in one room, use your disc as
soon as you think some of them are at one line, the disc will cut
through everything until it hits a wall.

If you're hiding next to a door or behind a wall at a perfect ambush
spot and you get hit, some blood may spray on the floor and even that
little indication may prove useful to other players who enter that area.
If you think you're trapped then, don't hesitate to use your grappling
hook and get the hell out.

You can also use the following tactic. When someone shot you and you
bleed a little, move to dark place and launch yourself into the air with
the grappling hook. Then (hanging in the air with your opponent below
you), drop down on your opponent rushing around the corner and finish
him off.

When you're surrounded with marines, go to a dark corner and cloak
yourself. Don't move. The Motion Trackers will not track you since you
don't move and the marines will think you're gone. Don't do this in an
area with much light, because Marines can spot you in a certain angle of
the light.

4.6 Demo walkthrough
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

The level from the predator demo actually is included in the full
version of the game, but since I can't use anchors in a text file to
hop to the right location of the walkthrough, I just copied it into a
new section for your ease. In the full version, this is Bonus Level 1:
Invasion

It was originally a marine level, but it's filled with aliens, so
switch to the electric view (red). From the start, turn around and go to
the door to the right. Press the button and go through the door. Go
down the elevator. There's a hole in the floor in front of you. Jump

When you leave the tunnel, follow these directions: right, left, right,
left. You reach an elevator now. It's not easy to see, but it's higher
than the rest of the floor. Hit the button on the right wall in front
of the elevator and ride it up. On the next level, go stand on the
elevator on the other side of the room and ride it up. Follow the ledge.

On your left, you see a tube. Ignore it and go up the stairs on your
right. Go up the next stairs and through the corridor. At the
intersection, go straight ahead. At the end, jump down to the lowest
level (you can also use the elevator). Switch to the thermal view now
(blue), you have to deal with some marines now. Go through the door
below the stairs. In the next room, there's a minigunner and a
flame-thrower, so watch out. Go left and then right. Proceed to the next
room, you see an APC. Destroy all resistance and enter the APC then.
There's a final marine inside the APC (he's having fun, he likes to
stick his head through the top of the APC). Kill him to end the level.

4.7 Full version walkthrough
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

I received an incredibly amount of questions from people stuck in the game
so I decided to write a walkthrough. Please, do not mail me for
information on a level that's not included in the walkthrough yet. Just
wait until I've finished it. In the walkthrough, I don't mention much
items such as field charges, you usually can't miss them. There's no use
telling about the enemies either, because they vary from training to
director's cut and often appear at random places.

Always switch to the appropriate vision mode for each race.

Additions and corrections are welcome at ravager@pandora.be

A Episode 1: Waterfall
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

You will meet nothing else but marines in this mission, so switch to
your thermal view from the start. First take out the marines below you
(there's one walking around) and another one will appear from the
entrance to the back. You can use the speargun to snip on them. Next,
run down and press the button. Run back up the stairs and jump on the
platform on the right. Jump to the next platform and walk to the door.

Push the button and go through the door. Follow the path until you see
some stairs going down. Jump on the platform on the left and destroy the
the marine and you get some field charge.

* Tactic: you don't need to press the jump button twice to reach the
other side. While pressing the forward key (when standing
in front of the bar), just keep the jump button (and the
forward button) pressed. The predator will jump on the bar
and then to the other side automatically.

Go down the stairs then (or jump down) and enter the tunnel. Turn right
and go down the stairs. Hit the button to the right and return from
where you came (up the stairs). Now walk to the door in front of you,
it has been unlocked. Walk through the door and get the field charge
from the right. Go to the door to the right and press the button.
Proceed through the door.

Now, just follow the way (over a ledge, up more stairs, ...) You will
reach a U-turn over two bridges. Just follow it and go down the stairs.
You access a room called Checkpoint 1. Go to the other side past the
bars and go left into the entrance. Go up the stairs and clear the
next room, this room is called Checkpoint 2.

There's another field charge below the beginning of the stairs. Go
through the entrance at the end of the stairs. Push the button and go
through the door. Turn left, hit the button and go through the next
door. Go left whenever you can. You reach a control room. If there's
a marine down here, kill him. Now return and take the other hallway,
you reach the room checkpoint 3.

Go down the stairs and you're outside. Hit the button in front of the
door to the right and proceed. Go down more stairs and you reach the
waterfall. Hit the button to the right and wait for the elevator to
come down. Ride the lift up and press the button to the right. Step
inside the airlock and walk to the other side.

B Episode 2: Area 51
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

This is a marines-only level again, so switch to the thermal view at
once. Walk forward and step out of the airlock. Go to the left into
the room. On the left wall, there's a control panel. If you smash, you
find a power charge inside. Flip the switch to the right and go through
the big door on the other side. Push the button with the "Up sign" to
the right to open the elevator. Step inside and ride it up. Walk into
the next room. You will need to flip a switch to lower a bridge here.
There are two different ways to get to the switch, I'll give you the
quickest one and then the rather slower one (but with more marines)

1 Look to the right, you see a platform into the wall. Use
the tactic from Episode 1 to get to the platform. I'll give it again
in case your forgot and don't want to scroll up:

* Tactic: you don't need to press the jump button twice to reach the
other side. While pressing the forward key (when standing
in front of the bar), just keep the jump button (and the
forward button) pressed. The predator will jump on the bar
and then to the other side automatically.

So, to do it, you have to stand in front of the bar and then jump
forward\right to the platform. Follow the tunnel and open the door to
the right. To the left, you can find the switch, flip it. In front of
you, there's a control panel with another field charge. Return through
the door from where you came. You'll see the bridge has been lowered.
Jump back (you now stand where you had to perform the tactic to
reach the platform). Walk over the new bridge to the other side. By
using this shortcut, you will avoid a lot of marine contact.

2 This is the longer & harder way. Go to the left and go down the
stairs. Go to the right. There's a vent there you can break. Go through
the small tunnel. On the other side, leave the small tunnel and go up
the lift. To the right, there's a control panel with a field charge, to
the right, you can find the switch to lower the bridge. Flip it and go
through the door on the left. Jump across the gap to the bridge and go
to the right.

The two paths come back together here. Follow the tunnel and you reach
the conference room. Go down the stairs to the right. Go through the
door and you'll see the ship, your mission objective. Leave the room and
go back up the stairs. Walk to the other side of the room and go through
the door. Follow the stairs down (only two flights). A door will open.
Enter the room and walk to the end. Push the button to the right to open
the door and go through it.

In this room, you have to be careful with your fire because you can hurt
yourself too. Go down (with the elevator, the stairs, or just jump). On
the desk, you can find the level 2 security pass. Go back up and return
to the flights of stairs. Go one flight down and go through the big door

Jump over the gap and go through the next door, you just got past
the security level 2. Go to the left and then go through the door on
your right. Flip the switch on the right. There's also a control panel
in the back with a field charge. Go back through the door you came and
turn right. Walk straight ahead through the door. Turn right and follow
the hallway to the end. Turn right again. Walk straight forward again
through the door. At the next fork, turn left and turn left again as
soon as you can. Walk through the door, you're in the kitchen now.

Turn left and go through the door straight ahead. Walk past the sentry
gun and turn right again. Go through the door and turn right, you reach
the dining hall. Walk to the end of the room and go through the door.
Go through the door on the left and take out the marines in the back.
Go down the slope to the right and open the door, you reach the library.

There's a marine with a shotgun here, make sure to take him out. Get
down with the elevator. There's another field charge here. Get it. Go
through the entrance. At the end of the small tunnel, you reach the
laundry room. Go to the back of the room and jump over the boxes to the
left (you can destroy them too). Smash the chuteboard and jump inside.
In the next room, smash the vent on the other side. Follow the small
tunnel and you'll finally enter the hangar with your ship. Kill the
marines inside the room and then walk up the ramp of your ship to end
the level.

C Episode 3: The vaults
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

This mission starts with marines, so switch to the thermal view (blue).
In your ship, you have collected the energy pistol and the disc. You
have all your weapons now. Leave your ship (go down the ramp) and go
through the door on the door on the left. Go through the next door. Walk
to the back left corner. Destroy the cabinet and you can find a grate
behind it. Smash the grate and get inside the airduct. Turn right and
you'll see a grate in the floor. Smash it and jump down.

You will need to destroy four computers. The first one is to your right.
Destroy it and go left then. There's another grate in the wall. Smash
it and go to the next room. Destroy the next computer here and go
through the next grate. In the middle of the airduct, you will hear the
beeps from a turret. Turn right and you can see a turret below you. You
cannot smash the grate, so use your speargun to deactivate it. I used
to think that the speargun was the only weapon that could disable the
turret from here (because the spears are rather thin), but it also seems
possible to use the shoulder cannon, when the three dots are all aimed
precisely at the turret. If one of the dots shows on the grate, you will
not take the turret out and you will have some splash damage yourself.
Thanks for submitting this, Eivind Krokeide !

Continue your way then and destroy the third computer. Destroy the grate
and go to the final room. Destroy the fourth computer and the security
door on your right will open. Go through it.

Turn right and go through the door. You'll hear a message from the
marines that there are Xenoborgs on the loose. Switch to the electrical
view, it's all about aliens now. Walk straight ahead. At the end of
the hallway, look up, it's the grate where the turret stood below. Turn
right there and go through the double doors. Walk down the slope and
walk through the tunnel with the number 1 above it (there's a big glass
window to the right). At the end of the tunnel, open the door and kill
the alien.

Now just go through the next room (there are six rooms). Watch out,
because there usually is an alien in each room. After the third room,
you make a turn and find a power source. After the sixth room. Turn
right and run down the slope. You can turn left or right now. Listen to
the message, the marines have shut down the power. Turn right and follow
the hallway. Look to the numbers on the bars attached to the ceiling.
Run all the way through section 1. In section 2, enter the first
entrance to your left. (If you're almost out of energy, you can also
find another power source on the entrance to the right) Kill the aliens
in the room and go to the back, on the left side of the room. Smash the
grate and enter the tunnel.

In the tunnel, follow these directions: at the first fork go straight
ahead, at the second turn left, follow the long tunnel and go left
again on the third fork. Smash the grate and enter the next room. Watch
out, there's a face hugger here.

Go through the door to the left and kill the alien in the next room.
Flip the switch and the power is back online. Return to the previous
room now and go through the door in front of you. You're back in the
big corridor now. Turn left and follow section 1 to the end. Turn right
and follow section 2 to the end. At the end of section 2, turn right
and walk to the back of the room. Go up the elevator and continue your
way. Walk through the two doors and go down the slope. Go down the
next stairs and walk straight ahead then. You reach section 1. Follow
section 1 to the end and turn right. Then follow section 2 to the end
and turn left. You're in section 3 now. Walk through section 3 until
you see some blood on the floor (the blood cannot be seen in the
Predtech vision mode). Follow the blood to the left into the
pen and you'll see the message that a fellow predator has been here.
Collect the power source. Go back to section 3 then and turn left. At
the end of section 3, turn left and go into the next room. Go through
the door in the back and collect the power source and the security card.

to the left (into section 4). You reach a room with a pillar in the
middle. Go through the door on the left (you use your security card)
and go through the many, many doors until you reach a room with a
Predalien in a sphere. Take him out with your speargun. As soon as you
killed him, a time limit is activated. You have exactly one minute to
get out.

Run back to the room with the pillar and go to the left. There's a small
door in the wall. Get inside and flip the switch, this will activate the
elevator. Return to the pillar room and turn right. Get inside the
elevator and ride it up. Run through the doors then and you reach your
ship. Run up the ramp and once you're inside, the level ends.

D Episode 4: Fury 161
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

It's all about aliens in this level, so use the electric view all the
time. Go straight ahead and hit the switch on the right. Go through the
door and kill the aliens. Turn left. At the end, go down the stairs on
the left. Under the stairs, you can find a field charge. Go straight
ahead then and up the stairs. Turn left and ride the elevator up.

When it reaches the top, go straight ahead and go left up the stairs.
Turn left and walk straight ahead. Turn right and go up the stairs.
Turn right and walk to the machine at the end of the balcony. Push the
switch and jump the whole way down. Now return to the first room where
you met the aliens (go down the stairs back again and to the room with
the fan). The door straight ahead will be unlocked. Walk through the
door. There will be some aliens on fire attacking you. They let some
barrels explode, so don't get too close. Walk straight ahead and kill
the facehugger at the bottom of the stairs. Go up the set of stairs.
When you reach the top, you get the message "That pipe looks weak".
Shoot the square platform in the middle of the pipe and an opening
appears. If you're low on your energy now, you can first collect a
field charge from the left room. Jump inside the opening then and go
left. Fall down another gap and kill the alien in that room. Push the
switch (it slows down the fan in the first room) and then go to the door
Hit the switch to the right of the door and go through it. Go left
through the door and then right. Walk past the fan and the wall behind
it will open if you approach.

In the next room, turn left. In the pipe to the left, there's another
field charge, but it's too tricky to get it with a fan so nearby. Go
through the door on the left. Go up the two flights of stairs and you
reach a big room. Walk to the back right of the room and hit the switch.
Then drop down in the hole next to it. There's another field charge in
this room. Go to the door the closest to the field charge and further
away from the barrels (it's the smallest door). There will be some
aliens in here that let some barrels explode. Watch out.

Go through the next room and go up the set of stairs. At the top, turn
left and follow the walkway. Take the first door on your left, go up
the stairs and kill all the aliens (don't drop down from the platform).
Walk to the back and go left then. Push the switch and return through
the door. Turn left and right then. Get the field charge from the right
if you want. Go through the door on the left then.

Go up the spiralling stairs. At the top, go through the door in front
of you. Turn left, go up the stairs and go through the next room. You
reach another room with a switch. Follow the path to the left and push
the switch. Then, return through the door, down the stairs and through
the next door. You're standing at the top of the stairs once again now.
Go to the right and go through the door. Go up the elevator. Up there,
go through the opening to the right and through the door. You're now
in another elevator room, but one level higher. Follow the path to the
right and press the button at the end. You can reach the lower levels
with the elevator now. The elevator is in the middle of this room.
Go to the left of the room and enter the elevator through the opened
door on the right (don't go back through the door you just entered, it's
not there). Ride the elevator whole the way down. At the end, leave the
elevator to the right. There are some aliens here that will cause more
barrels to explode, so watch out.

Walk to the back of the room and go up the stairs on the right. You're
in a small tunnel now. There are some field charges in here. Find them
for yourself (it's not hard at all). I'll stick to the instructions to
get out, or it gets too confusing. In the tunnel, take this route at the
fork: right (first fork), straight forward (second fork), right (third
fork). In this room, push the switch. Go right then into the tunnel
back again and you reach a door. Go through the door (you just unlocked
it). You'll meet marines now, so switch to the thermal view (blue).

Go through the door and go to the back of the room. Jump on the elevator
and ride it to the top. Walk up the stairs then to your left. Turn right
and follow the stirs down then. Follow the walkway (it bends to the
right) and take the next elevator down. There are some small walkways
here with some pools. Just don't step into the pools. Walk straight
forward and then left. To your right, there's a marine that shoots
grenades. Take him out from where you stand. Walk straight forward again
to the back of the room. If you turn right, you face the platform where
the marine stood. First go to the left (you'll have to jump). In the
room to the right, you find another field charge. Return and jump to the
platform where the grenade launcher-marine stood. Walk to the back of
the platform and go through the entrance.

In the next room, hit the switch to the right and go through the door on
the left. Walk down the stairs and you reach a big open area. You're
standing on a ledge. Now just wait for your ship to arrive and the level
ends.

E Episode 5: Caverns
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

This is a marine mission once again, so use the thermal view (blue) in
this level. You'll have to use your cloaking ability here, because the
marines just keep on coming in this level. Walk straight ahead and look
down from the ledge. Zoom in on all marines below you and take them out.
Jump down. Go through the tunnel on the left. Go right, then left. You
reach a new area with some stairs leading up. Don't go up the stairs,
but go to the right of them. Enter the tunnel and you reach a new area.
Flip the switch to the right and the message "the door above has opened"

Go up the stairs and follow the tunnel, you're standing on a ledge. Take
out all the marines you see first. Jump to the ledge on the left and
follow the tunnel. At the end, take out all the marines you see. Follow
the ledge to the right then. You see a cable of an elevator. Cut the
cable and jump down then. Get the field charge if you need it and jump
down the elevator shaft then.

Go through the tunnel on the left. Follow the ledge to the right. In the
new area, walk over the small bar to the computer pillar to get another
field charge. Go to the tunnel on the other side. In the next area, you
are on a ledge again. Look down (there's an APC). Kill all marines and
jump down. Switch to the electrical view (red) now. Open the big airlock
doors with the button to the right of the door and wait. You'll see a
Xenoborg (or two, it depends on the difficulty level you chose). It
doesn't see you yet. Equip your disc and blow it away. Finish it off
with your other weapons then. Go to the left and destroy the turret.
Push the button to the right of the door and go through it then. Go
through the door on the left and kill the aliens you encounter.

There's an APC blocking the way. Walk straight through it. Turn right
and go through the tunnel. In the next room, a message appears that says
the controllers for a door are here. In the back of the room, there are
two generators. Shoot them both and the doors will open. Through the
door on a side, you can find a field charge. Return through the tunnel
you just came and walk straight ahead to the end of the room. Turn right
and you'll see an opened door. Walk through it.

Follow the tunnel. In the next area, you see a wrecked APC. You can
walk through the tunnel straight ahead or through the wrecked APC on the
left. Both paths lead to the same place. In the next area, you have to
deal with two preatorian guards. Kill them (keep the two of them in
front of you while you fire all your spears). Walk through the tunnel
in the back then. The floor will collapse and the level ends.

F Episode 6: Battle
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

This is the final level where you have to beat the queen. It's not
really necessary to have a walkthrough for this level, but I'll do it
anyway. The only weapons you have in this level are your claws and your
speargun. Walk forward and you enter the queen's birthing chamber. Here,
the queen will attack you from the left. Sometimes, there are also
some face huggers (I think it depends on the difficulty skill you
chose).

Just keep moving all the time and avoid all the attacks. If she charges,
just sidestep and run away. Strafe to avoid the rocks & stalagmites she
throw. Never let her get close either or she'll tear you apart with your
claws. Only shoot with your speargun when you're absolutely sure you
will hit her. You will need to kill the facehuggers too to end the level

G Bonus Level 1: Invasion
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

This was originally a marine level, but it's filled with aliens, so
switch to the electric view (red). From the start, turn around and go to
the door to the right. Press the button and go through the door. Go
down the elevator. There's a hole in the floor in front of you. Jump

When you leave the tunnel, follow these directions: right, left, right,
left. You reach an elevator now. It's not easy to see, but it's higher
than the rest of the floor. Hit the button on the right wall in front
of the elevator and ride it up. On the next level, go stand on the
elevator on the other side of the room and ride it up. Follow the ledge.

On your left, you see a tube. Ignore it and go up the stairs on your
right. Go up the next stairs and through the corridor. At the
intersection, go straight ahead. At the end, jump down to the lowest
level (you can also use the elevator). Switch to the thermal view now
(blue), you have to deal with some marines now. Go through the door
below the stairs. In the next room, there's a minigunner and a
flame-thrower, so watch out. Go left and then right. Proceed to the next
room, you see an APC. Destroy all resistance and enter the APC then.
There's a final marine inside the APC (he's having fun, he likes to
stick his head through the top of the APC). Kill him to end the level.

H Bonus Level 2: Escape
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Finally, you can use the grappling hook. For more information on its use
thermal view (blue), but later on in the level, you'll have to use the
electric view (red).

There's a stupid, civilian in front of you when you start. He's not
dangerous. Go straight ahead. At the end of the tunnel, use your
grappling hook to get to the top of the room. Break the glass and get in
the next room. Go to the right and jump down next to the elevator.

You'll meet aliens & marines here, so switch to any vision mode you want
First, kill the marines and then the aliens. Go through the door on the
right. Then go through the door on the left. In the next room, the door
is locked, so you will have to use your grappling hook to get through
the airduct into the next room. Turn right and go through the next
three doors. When you reach a room with no more doors, use your
grappling hook to get to the platform on the top of the room. Follow the
catwalk to the next room (you can find a field charge there if you need
it). Use the catwalk to go to the next room. Jump down there and just
follow the doors while killing aliens & marines (I know, I describe
it as it's as easy as blowing your nose) until you reach a room with no
more doors. Use your grappling hook to enter the airduct on the left.

Go right (don't drop down yet) and go left. At the end of the catwalk,
jump down. Walk straight forward and look to the left through the
window. You see a marine fighting a Xenoborg (just guess what the
outcome is). Go into the next room (a bathroom). Look up, behind you,
there's a platform. Use your grappling hook to get up. Turn right and
follow the catwalk into the next room. Go through into the next room and
then through another door. You reach the room with the Xenoborg you just
saw through the glass. Use your disc to take him out quickly. Use your
grappling hook to get back on the catwalk. Follow it and use your hook
again to climb up. Jump down into the next room. Use your grappling hook
to get in the next airduct. In the next room, you have to get down a
long way. Use your grappling hook to get down safely. Enter the next
airduct and you reach a small chamber with two praetorians. Kill them
both to end the level.

I Bonus level 3: Temple
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

This is an alien level, so you can use the grappling hook once again.
This is a level filled with aliens, so switch to the electric view when
you start the level.

From the start, jump down and kill all the aliens. There's a hole on
the left, near the ceiling of the room. Use your grappling hook to get
inside. Follow the tunnel. At the end, you reach the room with the big
alien statue. First, kill the two face huggers below you (the energy
pistol does the job fine), then get down. On the other side of the room,
go through the tunnel on the right. At the end, drop down and go up the
long shaft with your grappling hook. In the next tunnel, go right (it's
not the one with the blood). At the end, grapple into the next room. On
a higher platform in this room, you can find another field charge. Take
the elevator up (or grapple up) into the small tunnel. Go through the
door into the next room.

Ride the elevator on the left up. Go through the entrance and through
the door. Get on the next elevator and you reach a big area. There are
four entrances on the sides, but you don't need to go in there. Go
straight up with your grappling hook. Keep going up levels (you cannot
go in straight line, you'll have to swing from the left to the right)
until you reach a level with two entrances with fire in front of it.
When you approach, you get the message you have to kill the praetiorian
guards to put out the fires. Now, go up one level. There are different
routes there, but it's a bit confusing to explain. Enter each entrance.
In one of them, there will be a bunch of praetorian guards. Take them
out and the fires will be put out. In another room, there will be
more types of aliens. It's possible you have to take them out too to
put out the fire. Anyway, get back down one level. Jump down the hole
and you enter a place called "the face hugger shrine". Enter the small
tunnel to end the level.

J Bonus level 4: Earthbound
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Once again, you get the grappling hook in this level. You start in front
of a door. Break the glass on the right of the door to flip the switch.
Go trough the door and kill the marine in the next room. Turn right and
go through the door. Jump down. Destroy the grate in the middle and
jump down. Kill all the marines (there's often a marine with a
flamethrower below the grate, so watch out). Go straight ahead and
break the glass on the right. Go through it and go through the next
room. There a computer on your left here you can destroy, but I don't
think it's necessary. Jump down. You have to destroy eight substations
(boxes) here to open a door. There are four of them on each side of the
room.

If you destroyed them all, the big door with the words Dock 3 & 4 next
to it will open (on you left). There's a turret here, but it's facing
the other side. Switch to the electrical view here. Let the turret take
out all alien that appear. Once they're all dead, destroy the turret.
In the back of the room, you see a broken grate on the ground. Look to
the left wall and use your grappling hook to get inside the airduct.
When it ends, jump down into the next tunnel. Turn left and walk
straight ahead. Again, you'll have to destroy eight substations here
to disable the fans. Do so.

When the fans are disabled, use your grappling hook to go inside the
fan (it doesn't matter which fan you choose, they both end up in the
same room). You'll reach a room with two other pipes. One leads to the
other fan. Watch out, there may be a praetorian in here. Go through the
third pipe and kill the marine. Get the field charge from the left.
Go to the back of the room and crawl under the pipes. Drop down in the
hatch and go through the small door on the left. Kill the marine.

There's a shaft in the ceiling here. Go up all the way through the shaft
and ignore all the entrances to the sides. On top, kill all resistance
and go to the right. Go through the two doors and jump down the shaft.
Destroy the grate at the bottom and enter the next room. Break the glass
and get through. Destroy the computer on the right and jump down in the
next room. Destroy the eight substations in this room. There's also a
field charge. The door on the right will open, make sure you have the
pistol ready. As soon as the door has opened, kill the officer (it's the
one with the minigun), then the other marines. The level ends.

K Bonus level 5: Tyrargo
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

No grappling hook in this mission. Switch to the thermal view when you
start (blue). You start on an elevator that takes you up. When you
reach the top, go left through the door. Jump down. Go through the hall
and through the door on the left at the end, you reach the docking bay.

Kill the marines and go through the door on the right. Flip the switch
on the right and an elevator comes down. Don't stand on it yet. Zoom in
on the top of the elevator and take out the two turrets there. Ride the
elevator up then. Go through the door straight ahead and then through
the door on the left at once. Turn left and jump down. Go straight
through the corridor and you reach the dining room (there's a table with
a knife in the middle of the room). Kill all the marines in here and
walk to the glass cabine in the back right of the room then. Break the
glass and get through. Go straight ahead and turn left at the end. You
enter the next cryo sleeping room. Just follow the rooms until you reach
a door on your left. Go through it and you're in another docking bay.
Go through the door on the right (there are some dangerous marines in
here) and prepare to leave the level ... NOT. Accidentally, the marines
let some Aliens get through. Switch to the electric view and go back
through the door into the docking bay.

Go up the stairs on the left and flip the switches on the left wall.
Turn around and go back through the door on the right. Now follow the
way back to the dining room and jump through the glass. Go through the
door on the left and then to the left around the barrels. Hit the switch
to the right and ride the elevator up. Go to the right and take out the
two predaliens (use your disk). Go down the stairs and turn left. Go
right past the barrels. In this room, you can find a field charge on the
left. Walk to the back and go left up the stairs. Go left and flip the
switch, the door on the right opens. Go through it.

Just follow the hallway (you'll have to go up some little stairs in the
middle). Go through the door at the end and jump down. Go through the
door and you're in another docking bay. There are two Xenoborg here,
take them out with your disc. Go up the stairs on the right and flip
the switch. Go through the door on the left then. Follow the tunnel
until you reach an elevator. Push the switch on the right and flip the
switch on the left. Ride the elevator up and go to the next room. Go
stand on the elevator. A message appears that says you have to wait for
a few seconds. Wait some time. The elevator will be activated and bring
you down.

V Enemies
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

There are 11 different enemies in the game

Civilians (Human)
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

These are not so tough and have little weapons. Playing as the alien,
use your jaw attack to boost your life and with the predator, use your
wristblades to save your field energy. They have a blue aura and can be
seen in the Thermal View.

Marines (Human)
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

These are stronger versions of the civilians. They have more advanced
weapons like the minigun, so you can't just use your wristblades or jaw
with them. Playing as the alien, try to take him out with your tail or
use advanced tactics if they're grouped. Playing as the predator, don't
try to get in their line of fire, because the minigun does a lot of damage
Use your shoulder cannon for instant kills. If there are too many marines
around, cloak yourself and keep out of the range of their motion scanners.
They have a blue aura and can be seen in the Thermal View.

Android (Human\Robot)
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

These are the robot versions of the civilians. They're not feared like the
civilians are and they have more advanced weapons. For the alien, use
the same techniques you use against civilians and marines. The predator
will not be able to use his wristblades, use your weapons. They do not
have an aura and they can be seen in the electrical view.

Turret (Machine)
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Turrets are placed all over the level and they're quite dangerous,
especially for the predator because he can see through cloaking. The whole
point is to get behind them. Use strafing and dodging techniques (turrets
can easily kill you) until you're behind the turret, then destroy it with
a weak weapon. They can be seen in the electrical view.

Facehugger (Alien)
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

These are the aliens everybody knows from the film, they're similar to the
head crabs in Half Life. Once you're hit, you may start the level over,
because you cannot shake them off like in the films :(

This is extremely annoying, so you should take them out on sight before
they have the chance to leap towards you. The best weapons for the
marine is the incinerator. Spray some fire towards them until you've set
them on fire. Then wait until they're killed. You can also consider using
the smartgun, because the auto-tracking function can help aiming. Playing
as the predator, use a weapon with a blast radius, like the pistol.

Preatorian (Alien)
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

They look a bit like the queen (with their headlate), but you just have
to fight them like normal marines. They are a little bit stronger but not
faster in any way. Just finish them off before they the chance to use
their tail on you. Cloaking won't work for the predator and they can be
seen in the electrical view.

Xenomorph (Alien)
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

These are faster versions of the normal aliens. Just like the preatorians,
try to kill them before they have the chance to hurt you with their tail.
They can see through cloaking and can be seen in the electrical view. Just
watch their speed, one moment of confusion and you're dead. The marine
should use rockets and since they can see through cloaking, the predator
should use his Disc or some spears. They can be seen in the Electrical
View.

Queen (Alien)
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

The Queen Alien. She's the final alien and she has the ever lasting
company of facehuggers (except for the final marine mission). She has 3
kinds of attacks: her deadly claws, charging, and throwing broken
attacks. She can see through cloaking and she can be seen in the
Electrical View. The queen cannot be killed playing as the Marine,
you will need a special tactic to get rid of her. Using the predator, you
can kill her with a lot of spears from your speargun.

Predator (Predator)
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Do not use your incinerator, it's useless. They're pretty close to the
predator you can play with. As a marine, use SADAR rockets or the minigun
to kill them. As the alien, use a charged tail to injure them. If you have
damaged them enough, they will kneel a bit and self-destruct, that's the
excellent time for the alien to use his jaw attack. Playing as the marine,
simply get out of there before the blast hits you. They have a green
aura that changes to a light silver one when they cloak.

PredAlien (Predator\Alien)
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

It's a mix of the Predator and the Alien. As the marine, use your
smartgun or the incinerator (works fine). As a predator, aim for
the head and place a spear in it. They're very tough so you will have to
injure them a lot. They can also see through cloaking and they can be
seen in the electrical view.

6.8 Easter eggs
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

* Playing as the marine, go to Episode II: Colony. After entering the
main area, go to the other side and you'll see a "bar" sign. Nearby;
there's also a sing that "dead", it may be a morgue. This possibly
is an inside-joke, but I have no clue what it means. It doesn't
appear to be an easter egg after all, but the signs could also be
seen in the special editions of the alien movies.

_____________________
VII Multiplayer Games
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Of course, Aliens vs Predator also has a multiplayer mode. Unlike many
other games, there's a lot more to do than just plain deathmatching. I'll
just give a brief overview of all multiplayer modes with some explanation.

Standard Deathmatch
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

This mode doesn't require much strategy, it's the way most people play
First Person Shooters these days. You choose a race and fight in a
level all other opponents (from any species). The one with the most
frags wins. You just get a good weapon, try to kill as much as possible
and try not to die. That's all.

Species Deathmatch
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

In this mode of play you are allied with people of the same species.
Remember, never to kill anybody of your own race; you lose points if
you do so. The host can, however, turn on an option which makes it
impossible to kill someone of your own species that is good for you
trigger-happy people. Flame-Throwers, however, seem to be not affected
by this option, so don't any of you use Flame-throwers!

In a Species Deathmatch, your chances of survival and kill rate will go
up if you try to stick together and become a team (especially for the
Colonial Marines); the combined firepower of a squad will easily
destroy any opposition.

Last Man Standing
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

In this mode of play all players play as the Colonial Marine except for
the host, who plays an Alien.

When you're the Colonial Marine, your primary job is to not get yourself
any of your friends die, you/they will now play as an Alien on the
host's team, now hunting your friends, as it is the only way you/they
can score points now.

When you're playing the Alien (which means you're the host) in the game,
your primary job is to kill one of the Colonial Marines; if you kill him
he will restart an Alien on your side! Now, keep doing this to gain more
allies and kill those Marines.

This keeps going on until the last Colonial Marine dies, where he will
be rewarded as the "Last Man Standing". The game is now restarted.

To win as the Colonial Marines, it is imperative that you and your
allies stick together; if you are alone, you can be easily killed by the
Alien(s). If you are in groups, however, the Alien will have a smaller
chance of killing you and your teammates. As an addition to the strategy
try not to use Flame-throwers, as it can kill your squad-members even
if the option for disabling friendly-fire is on.

To win as the Aliens, you primary objective is to separate the Colonial
Marines so you can kill them one-by-one. If this is impossible, try to
attack from behind, even against the entire platoon; you will at least
kill one of the Colonial Marines before you die. Unlike playing as the
Colonial Marines, when you die, you restart as an Alien. They Colonial
Marines can't win.

Predator Tag
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

In this mode of play, the host plays as the Predator and the rest play
as the Colonial Marine or Alien. The person who kills the Predator
becomes the Predator, and only the player that plays the Predator can
score points, this makes a huge incentive to kill the Predator,
ingenious, right?

Alien Tag
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

In this mode of play, the host plays as the Alien, and the rest play as
the Colonial Marine or Predator. The person who kills the Alien becomes
the Alien, and only the player that plays the Alien can score points,
this makes a huge incentive to kill the Alien, ingenious, right?

Cooperative
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

In this mode of play you are restricted to two new maps. All players are
restricted to use the Colonial Marine or Predator, and are allied. You
and your allies will fight unlimited amounts of Aliens, Praetorians and
Predaliens, which are all controlled by the computer. When I say
"unlimited", I mean unlimited! The Aliens, Praetorians and Predaliens
are endless! Because of this, you cannot win, your objective is to
merely kill as many Aliens before you die, it really gets tedious after
a while.

Whilst playing the Colonial Marine, the Smart Gun or Mini-Gun is the
best weapon you can use against the Alien horde. Even though the Mini-
Gun is stronger, you are rendered immobile while using it, so you can't
run backwards while shooting, a very useful tactic. With the Smart Gun,
however, you can move in any way you want, but the weapon isn't as
strong as the Mini-Gun, take your pick.

I personally would choose the Pulse Rifle; the secondary-fire is very
useful when fighting the Alien horde, and the primary-fire is a good
all-around weapon, though not as effective as the Mini-Gun or Smart Gun.

Whilst playing the Predator, you should definitely use the Plasma
Pistol; it is the best weapon you can use against Aliens with its
blast-effect. Predaliens/Praetorians won't be defeated in such a way,

______________________
VIII Note on the patch
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Because everyone send lots and lots of hate-mail fox interactive had to

guided to the patch. After installing the patch, you can save during
gameplay and you can also use the new cheatcodes.

IX Bugs
¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

These are the bugs I know of:

The Predator cannot be seen in the Thermal View and that's right,
because he's cold-blooded, BUT in the movie, the hand of the predator
lights up orange, so it should be seen through the thermal view. (a
little thing they missed at Fox)

Reply to the last bug by Mark Terry (mettech@geocities.com)

Well, even a cold blooded creature will show up in a thermal view if
they are in a warm environment. For example, if the Predator is in a
jungle where it is 90 degrees F, he will show up as being a hot
object since he will be 90 degrees also, or maybe slightly less. So,
there will be difficulty seeing a Pred in thermal, but they should
show up, just slightly less bright. And, since many of the
environments in the game are indoors and appear to be metallic, the
Pred would show up very well. If the air temp was around 73 degrees F
(room temperature), he would show up as slightly warmer/brighter than
the surroundings. Partly because metals cool quicker, and partially
because all his movement and electronics would cause slightly more
heat to be shown. I'm just being over technical, but I thought it was
an interesting point. Maybe something for the sequel.

Then again, if the Pred has some sort of "coolant" in his armor, I'm
wrong.

¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Q: When I'm playing as the Predator, and I look at my stats, it reads
"Marine Trophies = 0"? How do I get these trophies and what are they?

A: If you've killed a marine, line up the dead body's head and use the
power punch (secondary fire with wristblades) to get the marine's
skull. That's a trophy. To do this, the marine may not have been

Q: Can it also be done with Aliens?

A: Yes, but you have to be careful for the acid they spray.

Q: Can I disable the Convex View (Fish bowl Effect) from the Alien?

A: No, that's not possible, it's a part of being an alien, they have to
live with it too, you know.

Q: How do I save my game while playing?

A: You can't save during gameplay, you have to finish the mission.

Q: Is there a console in Aliens vs Predator?

A: Yes, just press the key ~, it's the one below Esc.

Q: Can I take screenshots?

A: (Information from the AvP Network) Bring down the console and type (in
capital letters): BIND (KEY) SCREENSHOT (select the key of your choice
to bind taking a screenshot with). Then press that key to take a
screenshot. They will be saved in the game's root directory.

Q: After shooting a lot of spears with the predator, I'm out of them and I
don't find any ammo.

A: You get a certain number of spears at the start of each level. No ammo
can be found while playing.

Q: I heard this rumour about Bonus Levels

A: The rumour is true. Completing each of the species' missions on the
various levels of difficulty open bonus levels. (similar to the
system used in LucasArts' Rogue Squadron). When all missions have been
finished at 'Hard' level, the full 15 bonus levels should be available
between the Marine, the Alien, and the Predator.

Q: When using the debug cheat, I'm not able to advance levels or save.
What can I do about that?

A: There's nothing you can do. The cheats will only help you to explore
the level, not to finish it. It's the same about saving. A message
will appear saying "no saves allowed in the cheat\debug" mode.

A: Never. There won't be any editors to create your own levels, but
Fox Interactive will has plans to release an expansion pack.

Q: Which race is the best one?

A: The programmers were able to balance all three races. The marine is
quite easy to play with and has deadly weapons. The predator is a bit
harder, but he has fine weapons too. The alien is for the advanced
player, he doesn't have that much weapons, but his tail is extremely
deadly. Most people on public forums speak about the alien like he's a
little bug that can be squished any time during a fight between
predators and marines, but that's untrue. A master Alien Player can
kill up to 5 or 6 marines in a room.

Q: Playing with the predator, I bound a key to the Grappling Hook, but it
won't work. Why doesn't that work?

A: You can only use the Grappling Hook in certain Bonus Missions.

Q: Playing as a predator, I cloak myself, but marines still spot me.

A: Your armor reflects in a certain angle of the light. Also watch the
three laser dots from your gun. They can tell opponents a lot about

because it's too difficult in the early stages.

If you have any questions, you can always mail me on
ravager@pandora.be

Thanks go to Jason AKA WidowMaker for his point of view and to all the
people from the Forum at the Aliens vs Predator Network for helping me
with all the nasty questions and discussing all the topics.

Jelmes Baas corrected a mistake on the Predator's speed and self-destruct

More greets go to PN_Murdock who "pushed" me to update this guide :)
You can visit his site on http://go.to/predatornation

I would also like to thank planet AVP (www.planetavp.com) and
Aliens vs Predator Net (www.aliensvspredator.net) who published
my guide on their site and gave it positive comments.

Thanks Helen aka Hotgirl for submitting the final three cheat options.
She corrected some mistakes on the flares and the queen info and various
other corrections.

Thanks Adam Bond & JCasey for the submissions.

Have fun!
