     1) INTRODUCTION TO WALKTHROUGH
    ********************************
    
    
         Welcome to my very in-depth and extensive walkthrough for Quake
    II.  I know this walkthrough is about ten years late in the making and
    I decided to write a guide for it because I haven't seen many homemade
    walkthroughs posted for this game on the internet, which is surprising
    because of the popularity of this game.  Now that Quake 4 is out and
    has this game and its two expansions on it as a bonus, this game will
    probably rise in popularity once again, if only a little.  The biggest
    reason I want to write a walkthrough for this game is purely nostalgic
    and I feel like going back to my roots for this was the very first FPS
    game I ever played and it was on and poppin' from there, I've been
    hooked on FPS games ever since.  This game is great and was destined to
    be a classic the day it was released.  Plenty of fun, a nice size
    arsenal of weapons at your disposal, a tremendously high body count,
    decent size levels, tons of secret areas to try and find, not too short
    a game, and of course let's not forget all of the violence.  Here in
    2007 this game may seem graphically challenged, straight forward, and a
    bit too basic but this game was the absolute shit when it came out.
    Here's some interesting food for thought: the U.S. Marines used to use
    this game (and several others) to desensitize our soldiers to killing
    humans so they wouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger in combat.  For
    real, no bullshit.

     3) YOUR MISSION
    *****************
    
    
         The Strogg is an alien race of cyborgs hell bent on taking over
    Earth and converting all of us humans into cyborgs so they can
    incorporate us into their race.  Your mission is to go to the planet
    Stroggos and stop them before they head out on a mission to Earth to
    end civilization and the human race as we know it.
    
    
    INCOMING MESSAGE FROM TCM MARINE COMMAND:
    
         We have cleared the interplanetary gateway between Earth and
    Stroggos.  In exactly three hours operation Alien Overlord will
    commence.  As I speak to you, your pods are being fueled and all
    systems brought online.  The following intel brief will provide you
    with your military objectives, terrain information, arsenal and
    equipment details, and enemy analysis.  Never before has there been a
    greater challenge to life, liberty, and civilization.  This is a
    crusade in which we will accept nothing less than victory.  No matter
    how long it may take us to overcome the Strogg's barbaric assault, the
    people of Earth in their righteous might will win through to absolute
    victory.  Today we will make very certain that this form af barbaric
    treachery shall never endanger us again.  With confidence in you, and
    with the unbending determination of our people, we will gain the
    inevitable triumph - so help us God.  So go forth and kick ass
    soldiers!
    
    OPERATION ALIEN OVERLORD:
    
    GEOGRAPHY:  The core of the Stroggos civilization is the capital city
    of Cerberon.  The highly defended complex is built into the base of an
    enormous crater named Crater Majoris.  Between the northern plains and
    the southern sea of Stroggos, Cerberon contains the major defense,
    communication, and political controls for Strogg civilization.  At the
    southern tip of Majoris is a second crater called Crater Minor.  Crater
    Minor contains the defense base complex for the city of Cerberon.
    
    POLITICAL STRUCTURE:  The Strogg civilization is governed through a
    system of Warlords.  Each is given strategic command and control.  A
    single leader, called the Makron, is chosen from the Warlords.  He
    commands Stroggos from within the palace city located at the northern
    end of Cerberon.  Losing him would leave the Strogg confused and in
    turmoil as the Warlords battle internally to determine a successor.
    This would remove any chance Stroggos has for creating a well organized
    strike or defensive position.
    
    DEFENSE SYSTEMS:  Guarding Stroggos is a defense system we refer to as
    the Big Gun.  This defense system detects and destroys any ship over a
    few meters in length.  Also, to protect against ground assaults, a
    deadly laser security grid surrounds the entire capital city.
    
    ENERGY RESOURCES:  Bluish crystals called Steedium are the source for
    most of the energy that powers Stroggos.  The energy gained from
    processing these crystals provides them with power to run their entire
    civilization as well as their planetary defense weapons systems (a.k.a.
    the Big Gun).
    
    
    MILITARY OBJECTIVES:
    
         Your primary objectives are to establish a communications uplink,
    destroy the planetary defense systems, disable the interplanetary
    gateway, and assassinate the Makron commander.  Once the communication
    link is made, subsequent communications will guide troops to their
    primary targets, destroy targets of opportunity, and provide necessary
    ground support for the follow-up air strike.
    
    COMMUNICATIONS UPLINK:  Your first objective is to establish an uplink
    between command and the Strogg communication computers.  These are in
    the exterior military base south of the main capital of Cerberon.  This
    will enable continued communications, location information, and combat
    analysis beyond the base complex.  Failure to establish this uplink is
    not an option.  Once on the planet, the combat situation may change
    quickly.  It is imperitive that you regularly check your computer
    systems for updated orders.
    
    DESTROY THE BIG GUN:  From the base make your way past the security
    systems and move north to destroy the Big Gun located on the southern
    outskirts of the city.  Further intel will provide information to
    achieve this objective.
    
    DISABLE THE GATEWAY:  Disable the interplanetary gateway between Earth
    and Stroggos.  Shutting down the gateway will prohibit the Strogg from
    launching further attacks against Earth.
    
    ASSASSINATE THE MAKRON:  Finally, locate the Strogg commander somewhere
    within the capital palace.  Assassinating the Makron will assure
    complete and total disarray within the enemies ranks and hamper any
    well organized strike or defensive position.  Good luck.

    =======================================================================
    
    
    ************
     5) WEAPONS
    ************
    
    
    1) BLASTER:  Just a common futuristic handgun that doesn't quite cut it
    against the Strogg.
    
    2) SHOTGUN:  This is a pretty weak weapon and the range is short so
    don't use this on distant enemies.
    
    3) SUPER SHOTGUN:  A very powerful futuristic Shotgun that will drop
    the Strogg like ten ton bricks.  The range is a bit further than the
    Shotgun but it's more effective at close range, preferably point blank
    range in the chest.
    
    4) MACHINE GUN:  This compact weapon is quite effective against the
    weaker Strogg.  Your accuracy decreases with distance and you'll have
    to wrestle the controls to keep your sights on target 'cause this
    little gun has a nasty kickback and will vibrate all over the place to
    throw you off target.
    
    5) CHAIN GUN: The same weapon Jesse Ventura used in "The Predator" and
    Arnie use in "Terminator 2".  This weapon kicks serious ass and is very
    effective on all of the cyborgs running around and will shred them up
    like tissue paper.  You can blow through 200 rounds in about five
    seconds so shoot this off is short bursts.
    
    6) GRENADE:  Just a simple time delayed grenade, hold down the trigger
    for a few seconds to throw them further and to cook the grenade.  If
    cooking you have about four seconds to throw it or it will blow up in
    your face to take it off.
    
    7) GRENADE LAUNCHER:  For some reason all grenade launchers suck in
    FPS's, with the exception of this one.  Very effective if you shoot an
    enemy right in the face with a grenade, just aim kind of high as
    they're running towards you to stop them dead in their tracks.
    
    8) ROCKET LAUNCHER:  This is a really good weapon and will take out the
    bigger Strogg with just a couple of rounds.  The blast radius is quite
    large when a round explodes so don't use this weapon at close range.
    It takes some practice to master this weapon, it's really easy to miss
    a Strogg firing this.
    
    9) RAIL GUN:  This weapon fires hollow depleted uranium slugs at super
    high velocities like that weapon in the movie "Eraser."  This weapon is
    quite powerful against the tougher foe and one round will cut through
    several enemies at once if they happen to be in a straight line.
    
    10) HYPER BLASTER:  This is one of the most powerful weapons in the
    game and cuts through all the Strogg running around like hot knives
    through butter.  As like the Chain Gun you can waste all of your ammo
    for this by holding down the trigger, short bursts are all you need to
    kill a Strogg.
    
    11) BFG:  The BFG stands for "Big Fuckin' Gun" 'cause this thing is
    huge and causes utter devestation.  As you can probably guess by its
    name, this is obviously the most powerful weapon in the game.  It
    shoots a big green plasma like sphere that will shoot laser beams to
    lock onto a room full of enemies and then splatter them all into bloody
    little chunks that are just the right size to season and stew in the
    crockpot, those MREs just don't cut it after so long.
    
    
    =======================================================================
    
    
    ************
     6) ENEMIES
    ************
    
    
    1) GUARDS:  They are the weakest of the Strogg and kind of look like a
    certain Star Wars character who is way overated.  They are armed with
    blasters, shotguns, or machine guns and go down quite easily with your
    primary Blaster, a Shotgun blast to the chest will also drop these
    morons with one shot.
    
    2) ENFORCER:  These muscle bound cyborg bullies are armed with chain
    guns to rip you a new bung hole.  They are fairly powerful Strogg and
    will prove to be quite the menace, especially when they get right up in
    your face and pump you full of lead.  If you blow their heads off then
    the Chain Gun on its arm will go ballistic so try not to get wasted by
    the stray bullets zinging around.
    
    3) GUNNER:  These are fair size Strogg that like to charge right up to
    you and start blasting you in the face with fully automatic gun fire
    and pelt you with grenades from a distance.  Take these out from a afar
    with the Rail Gun or a blast to the chest from your Rocket Launcher.
    
    4) BERSERKER:  They are about the same size as Gunners but they don't
    shoot at you.  One of their arms is a hammer and the other is a sharp
    spike and they will run right up to you and slash/bash you  to throw
    you back about ten feet.  Your best defense here is a point blank Super
    Shotgun blast in their face, problem solved.
    
    5) IRON MAIDEN:  Female cyborgs hell bent on killing men.  These chics
    are absolutely brutal and are armed with a Rocket Launcher that will
    piss all over your parade.  If they get upclose to you they'll begin to
    slash you with their claws, how ironic.  The Rail Gun and Hyper Blaster
    are good defenses while fighting these PMS rampaging cyborgs.
    
    6) GLADIATOR:  These things are quite big, get around on huge robotic
    legs and are armed with a Rail Gun that will surely ruin your weekend.
    These cyborgs are pretty fast considering their size and they will be
    all over you within a matter of seconds if you don't take them out
    quickly.  The Rocket Launcher is one of your best defenses here, the
    best defense is to strafe left or right after you fire a round their
    way.
    
    7) PARASITE:  These are basically Strogg pets and attack you with their
    really looong tongues to inflict massive damage.  The best way to deal
    with these are to stand at least twenty feet back and launch a couple
    of grenades at it.
    
    8) MEDIC:  These Strogg are really quick and will kill you faster than
    Star Jones can suck down a pack of twinkies so use anything heavy you
    have in your arsenal to take them out.  They are quite large and walk
    really low to the ground and since they have incredible speed the
    crouching makes them rather hard targets from afar.
    
    9) BARACUDA SHARK:  These vicious fish have insanely sharp teeth and
    are obviously only found in water.  The Shotgun works quite well
    against these things.
    
    10) BRAINS:  Freaky cyborgs with tentacle arms that stretch out your
    way and cause massive damage if they happen to wrap around you, they
    also have some sort of protective shield around them.  The Super
    Shotgun is a good choice to take them down, so is the Hyper Blaster.
    
    11) TECHNICIAN:  These flying cylinders are actually tiny brains
    suspended in some kind of preserving fluid.  These things are nearly
    silent and will always seem to surprise you.  The Hyper Blaster will
    shred these things up in half a second.
    
    12) MUTANT:  The only entirely flesh enemy in the game.  They usually
    hang around in caves and can leap across entire rooms to land on your
    head to slice-n-dice you.  These things are really quick and grenades
    or rockets from a distance is the best defense when you see them.
    
    13) FLYER:  These are little cyborg bird/planes that will seriously
    piss you off at some point in the game.  They mostly hang around
    outdoors and whenever you're outside always keep an eye in the sky or
    they will sneak up on you and shit all over your parade.
    
    14) ICARUS:  Strogg idiots flying around on jet-packs.  Use the Chain
    Gun to send them spinning like a top until they explode.  Use the Super
    Shotgun if they get up close and personal with you.
    
    15) TANK:  Besides bosses these are the biggest, baddest, meanest,
    toughest, and deadliest Strogg around so be careful while you fight
    them.  They are extremely tough and brutal opponents and will inflict
    massive damage if you let them for they are armed with a Rocket
    Launcher, Chain Gun, and Super Blaster.  You can always hear their
    hydraulic legs moving from a distance so keep your ears keen.  Use
    anything heavy in your arsenal to take them down, a blast from the BFG
    right to the chest and a Rail Gun slug in the face will do the deed
    with ease.
    
    
    =======================================================================
    
    
    *************************
     7) HINTS AND STRATAGIES
    *************************
    
    
         - Take your time while exploring and enter rooms or areas very
    slowly.  If there are Strogg in the room and they start attacking you,
    back out of the area and they will almost always follow you.  Try to
    lure them out of the rooms a few at a time instead of charging right
    in.  Or perhaps maybe you're like me and can deal with hairy situations
    and charge into every room and wreak havoc.  If you do it the way I
    choose you'll improve your overall FPS gaming skills.
    
         - A vital key to your survival is to keep moving while under
    attack.  Don't just stand there like an idiot and try to act like Rambo
    and let the Strogg charge up to you.  Back up and strafe all over the
    place while fighting these cretants and whatever you do, don't back
    yourself up into a corner.  And don't forget that you can strafe
    diagonal.  Strafing diagonally is highly effective dodging numerous
    enemies gunfire, especially if raining down from above.
    
         - Take cover behind anything you can find when fired upon with the
    exception of expolding barrels and crates.  Common sense I know but a
    lot of people out there don't have one shred of it.
    
         - You will want to use corners to your advantage while fighting
    the stronger Strogg.  Strafe around a corner and launch a round and
    quickly retreat until the return fire stops, repeat this process to
    avoid taking tons of damage than by doing the alternate choice of
    charging down a corridor head on into a Tank 'cause you'll lose.
    
         - You will also want to use elevated positions to your advantage.
    In this game you'll come across numerous situations where you'll be on
    a ledge high above a room full of Strogg.  In most FPS games you will
    always have an advantage firing from an elevated position without too
    much worry about accurate return fire so keep this mind and use this
    tip wherever the situation calls for it.
    
         - Explore every nook and cranny on every level.  You would be
    surprised at all the stuff lying all over the place just waiting to be
    found that you would never know about if you don't explore the realms.
    
         - Try to save all of the health and armor until you absolutely
    need it.  It's a pain in the ass back tracking to it but it is well
    worth it.  Weak characters don't stand a chance against the Strogg.
    
         - Use all of the explosive barrels and crates found throughout the
    game to your advantage.  Wait for the Strogg to go near the barrels or
    crates and then blow them up to wipe the Strogg out with ease.
    
          - Launch grenades around corners to kill enemies without the
    damaging return fire.
    
         - Save in-game items like the Quad Damage, Invulnerability, and
    Power Shields until the later levels.  Trust me, you'll be very sorry
    if you waste all of the in-game items as soon as you get them.
    
         - You should always try to swim as far as you can before equipping
    a Rebreather, 90% of the time you can make the swim no problem without
    a Rebreather so keep this in mind.
    
         - In the earlier levels some enemies hang around alarms and will
    sound them if they see you to make more Strogg come out to play.  Kill
    these alarm sounding Strogg immediately, you'll be one sorry mug if
    they sound the alarm let me assure you.
    
         - When possible jump into the water and stay below the surface to
    avoid being hit by enemy gunfire.  Just look around for Baracuda Sharks
    while you're in the water because they are very sneaky.
    
         - This next strategy works well and is the top piece of advice I
    can give any FPS gamer.  While strafing near an enemy you can circle
    him buy strafing left or right while keeping your sights locked on him
    as you strafe left or right.  It takes some practice to master but once
    you do, use it on all your friends in multi-player, they'll hate you
    for it!  This stratagey works in every first person shooter out there
    so remember it and use it in all of your FPS games.  If you're playing
    this game on the N64 console to pull this move off you must hold down
    the R button as you strafe around the enemy, or so I was told.
    
         - And most importantly, don't ever give up and believe in
    yourself.  By doing so you can master this, or any game, in no time.

     8) GAME WALKTHROUGH
    *********************
    
    
    NOTE TO PC PLAYERS:  This game is old school and to be able to use the
    mouse to look around you must go into the options menu and change FREE
    LOOK to yes.
    
    SECOND NOTE TO PC PLAYERS:  If you happened to pick up an old copy of
    this game used at a yard sale or a video game store and are using the
    Windows XP OS on your computer, you will have problems installing the
    game.  The only way you'll be able to is to manually install it.  If
    you have Quake 4 and it came with Quake II on it as a bonus, installing
    this game will be no problem.  Here's how to manually install the game:
    
    STEP 1:
    
    Click Start, then click all programs, then click accessories, open the
    command prompt by clicking on it, this is DOS in case you're not
    familiar with computers and you can access any program or file on your
    computer by using DOS alone.
    
    STEP 2: TYPE THIS IN DOS LINE FOR LINE (in case you're computer
    illiterate don't type in the parenthesis or what's insinde them, do the
    action):
    
    cd\ (hit enter)
    md (space) quake2 (hit enter)
    cd\quake2 (hit enter)
    xcopy (space) e:\install\data\*.*/s/e/v (hit enter)
    
    Files will begin to copy, this may take several minutes for slower
    computers.  Note that in the last line e: is the designated letter for
    most CD/DVD drives and if yours happens to be different just type in
    the letter for your CD/DVD drive.  After the files are done copying
    type in exit and hit enter, this closes DOS.
    
    STEP 3:
    
    Click on the C: drive (or whatever drive the game went to) and open the
    Quake 2 folder.  Right click on the quake2.exe file, copy the file
    (it's the file with the Quake symbol OR a white window with a blue bar
    on top).  Close the window and on your desktop right click and paste
    the shortcut to Quake 2.  Right click on the shortcut and select
    properties, when the properties window opens select the short cut tab.
    The third line down is a line called Target.  DON'T DELETE WHAT'S
    ALREADY TYPED IN THERE!  At the end of the target line add this:
    
    (space) +set (space) cddir (space) E:\install\data (space) +set (space)
    basedir (space) C:\QUAKE2
    
    So there's no confusion or errors note that in the above lines +set,
    the first + is a plus sign, the last t is the letter t.  Also note that
    E: should be whatever letter your CD/DVD drive is and
    C: should be the letter of the drive where the game installed to.  Now
    you can run the game and have fun.  If for some reason this manual
    installation doesn't work for you (it should no problem if you didn't
    screw up the target line or the letters for your drives), you'll have
    to contact Activision technical support at www.activision.com/support
    and they should get you up and running in no time.  They'll most likely
    tell you to do the same thing I just did.
    
    
                          ***********************
                          * NOTE TO ALL PLAYERS *
                          ***********************
    
         If you use this guide I want you to know that I fail to mention a
    ton of enemies so be on constant guard, I don't want to be a total game
    spoiler on you.  I will also fail to mention lots of health and ammo
    since these items are everywhere so keep your eyeballs peeled.  You'll
    also notice that I have missed a lot of secret areas, I will add them
    in here if I ever find them.  If you guys find the ones I missed and
    want to e-mail their locations so I can add them to this guide it will
    be greatly appreciated, I will of course credit you for the find.

      Main Mission Objective:
    - Establish communication link to command ship.
    
      Secondary Objective:
    - Locate base installation elevator.
    
      Secret Areas: 2/3
    
    
         As soon as you start there will be barells in front of you, shoot
    them to cause an explosion to reveal a doorway.  Approach it and go to
    the left just before it and go down the incline collecting some
    Stimpacks.  A doorway leading into a corridor is in front of you and a
    hole is in the wall on the left.  Crouch into the hole and grab a Flak
    Jacket worth 25 armor.  Walk down the narrow path you're now on and
    climb over a broken pillar on the left when you get to it.  Grab a
    couple of Stimpacks on the right and drop down into the hole where
    another broken pillar fell and look for a Shotgun by a stack of crates
    along with some ammo for it, be weary of the Guards down here.  Behind
    the crates are some barrels, go shoot them to reveal a cracked floor
    beneath them, shoot the crack to form a hole and drop into it.  Crouch
    down, head left and MAKE sure you keep the wall to your left, it's very
    dark in here and you can use your Blaster rounds to lighten the place
    up a little.  Continue left keeping the wall on the left and go into a
    corridor that will appear on the left, continue along and grab the
    Adrenaline, then climb the ladder on the right.  Climb up onto the
    crates you'll see and you'll be back where you started the game.
    
         Head right and go through the corridor and grab some Armor Shards
    on the left and blast away at some more Guards.  There will be a
    doorway on the right leading outside, go out there and head down the
    stairs.  Go and crouch under the stairs to find a secret area with a
    Silencer.  Go back up the stairs and continue down the corridor on the
    right, you'll see an open window on the right and you can jump through
    it to grab a few Stimpacks on the left.  Continue down the corridor and
    go through a door, you'll see stairs on the right, enter the room and
    get ready to meet a couple of Enforcers.  These Strogg are very deadly
    and tough opponents, your arsenal is pathetic right now so it will take
    a few shotgun blasts to take them down.  If you shoot their heads off
    then 90% of the time the Chain Gun on its arm will go ape shit so watch
    out. Collect the ammo and look for a yellow switch on the ceiling
    behind the stairs to reveal a secret area with grenades in it, now head
    up the stairs and follow the corridor to an elevator on the left, step
    into it and press the button to end this level.

      Secondary Objective:
    - Use sewer tunnel to gain access to Comm Center.
    
      Secret Areas: 1/2
    
    
         As soon as the elevator doors open blast away at some Guards.
    Grab all the ammo, health, and shards lying about and go through the
    doorway, head left and you'll run into a control panel, press the red
    button to the left of it, this will lower the gate to the left so you
    can grab the Machine Gun and some ammo for it.  It will take you a
    little practice to get used to firing this weapon due to its kickback,
    just shoot short bursts until you can control the kickback.  Kill some
    more Strogg, grab the ammo and health in here if you need it and then
    step into the elevator in the back right corner.  To your right is an
    open doorway, don't go through it yet, follow the walkway to the left
    all the way to the end to collect a bunch of ammo, health, and shards.
    Turn around and follow the walkway back to the doorway you didn't go
    through, on the way back you'll find a Flak Jacket inside of a wall
    that opened.  Continue down the corridor and go through the open
    doorway on the right to be outside once again.  Go right past the
    broken bridge and head down the stairs, you'll see a large sewer pipe
    to your right, to the left of it is a small tunnel.  Go into the watery
    tunnel, not the sewer pipe, and you'll be in a large room with a bunch
    of pillars all around and a doorway leading into another water filled
    room.  Look for a cracked wall to the right of the doorway and shoot it
    for a secret area and grab the Shotgun.  Return to the sewer drain and
    enter it, press the button on the wall to open a large grate next to
    you, drop into it for the next level.

      Secondary Objective:
    - Locate Comm Center.
    
      Secret Areas: 1/2
    
    
         Head forwards to a doorway, drop into the water on the left and
    quickly swim under the grate to find some grenades.  Surface and go
    through the doorway, follow the corridor to a large room with more
    water in it, waste all the creeps and you'll spot a closed door, don't
    go through it yet.  Walk around the room and grab the Rebreather, this
    allows you to breathe underwater for 30 seconds, grab all the ammo past
    the Rebreather and do a cannon ball into the water.  There are two
    holes in the floor, one is located at the bottom of some stairs and one
    behind the stairs.  Go through either one and swim through a long
    corridor (you can make it without the Rebreather if you're fast enough
    so don't waste it) and surface into a secret area.  Go through the hole
    in the wall and step into the elevator in front of you for a secret
    level.

    ~ SECRET LEVEL: LOST STATION ~
    ------------------------------
    
      Objective:
    - Locate a powerful weapon.
    
      Secret Areas: 3/6
    
    
         Grab the shells in front of you and snag that Flak Jacket behind
    the crate on the right.  Continue down the corridor and a locked door
    will be on the left, so go through the door on the right and you'll see
    a trolley car, wait for it to go away and then jump into the water
    beneath it, swim down the tunnel on the left for a secret area, in here
    are some Stimpacks, another Rebreather, Armor Shards and ammo.  Press
    the green button on the wall to unlock the previously locked door, it
    opens so head through the door in front of you and take a trolley ride.
    When it stops, get out and wait for it to go away, don't go through the
    closed door yet.  There are three sets of water, one directly below the
    trolley, one to the left of the trolley, and another one to the right
    of the trolley far below.  Go into the water left of the trolley and
    kill some Baracuda Sharks.  There is a strange yellow button on the
    wall, shoot it to make a wall open at the other end of the tunnel.
    Swim in there and surface into another secret area.  To the left is an
    elevator, hop on and ride up to some ammunition, shoot the Guards
    across the way by the Red Key.  Ride the elevator back into the water
    and go left and surface, kill all the enemies and grab all of the items
    you see.
    
         Swim back to where the trolley dropped you off and surface, then
    head through the closed door.  You'll start walking up an incline, walk
    up it about ten steps and turn around, shoot the yellow switch above
    you and you'll raise up there, grab the Red Key you just saw a minute
    ago.  Go back up the incline to the top of the stairs and go through
    the door, there's a closed door ahead of you and a passage to the
    right, grab the shards on the right and follow the passage.  You'll see
    a yellow switch above you, shoot it and then quickly retreat until the
    trap stops firing.  Go back down the passage and through the opening on
    the left and drop into the water below, search for a secret area with
    some Adrenaline in it.  Ride the elevator back up and go through the
    closed door you didn't go through a minute ago, follow the corridor to
    another door and walk on through.  Head left or right to emerge into a
    large watery area with a large pillar in the middle of the floor.  Kill
    all of the Strogg, grab all the Stimpacks and ammo in the water, then
    approach the pillar and ride the elevator to the top of the pillar.
    Put the Red Key in the console to lower a bridge, go across it and head
    through the door to find a Super Shotgun and complete the objective for
    this level.  This weapon kicks serious ass so make sure you put it to
    good use.  Now make your way back to the previous mission being weary
    of all the Strogg hunting you down.

      Secondary Objective:
    - Locate Comm Center.
    
      Secret Areas: 2/2
    
    
         From the elevator head forwards and drop through the hole in the
    floor to be back in water.  Swim through the tunnel and surface, go
    through that door you didn't go though the last time you were in this
    area.  Kill all the Strogg in this room and head up the stairs wasting
    some more.  Don't go up the incline yet, walk around to the left and
    take some Stimpacks, hop onto the crate to snag the Quad Damage (use
    the barrels, don't shoot them) and head up the incline at the top of
    the stairs to enter a room with a hole in the floor, down there is an
    acid pit so don't jump in.  Head into the corridor to the left of the
    pit and follow it outside, there will be a locked door across from you
    and it requires a Blue Key to open, head through the door on the left
    and step into the elevator on the right.  Take a ride up and follow the
    corridor wasting Strogg everywhere and you'll come to a window on the
    right, shoot it out and kill the Gunner that's in the room behind it,
    go in there and approach the computer console and use its keyboard,
    this will complete your main mission objective and a Blue Key will
    appear next to the computer, grab it obviously and your secondary
    objective will get updated.  Head back to the locked door and keep your
    eyeballs peeled for an Enviornment Suit sitting atop some crates, jump
    onto it.  If you want you can equip it and jump into the acid pit for
    some Adrenaline but it's a waste of the suit so don't bother.  Go back
    to the locked door that needs the Blue Key and head through it to
    update your objective.  Enter a room with some grenades in a little
    container, crouch in there to get them and step onto the elevator, head
    through the door ahead of you for the levels exit.

         Pull the lever in front of you and you will see a bridge lower
    through the grate in front of the lever.  Head left and follow the
    corridor to emerge outside, blow up those annoying Flyers shooting at
    you and you'll spot a broken bridge, DO NOT DROP INTO THE AREA BELOW,
    you'll be back near the start of the game if you do and you'll have to
    fight your way all the way back up here.  Enter another corridor on the
    right and follow it around to the bridge you just lowered, cross it and
    head through the door.  In this corridor look for a hole to drop down
    into on the left, do so.  Go to the right and you'll find a secret area
    on the left with a Super Shotgun.  Kill all of the Guards that come
    charging after you and look for some stairs to climb.  After you do,
    climb up the crates on the right to find another Quad Damage, you
    should now have two if you didn't waste the other one, save these for
    the later levels, you'll be sorry if you don't.  Go into the elevator
    on the right to exit the installation.

      Main Mission Objective:
    - Destroy the Strogg logistical train.
    
      Secondary Objective:
    - Find enterance to Supply Station.
    
      Secret Areas: 2/3
    
    
         Head forwards and grab the health lying about if you need it, drop
    into the area below if you need a Super Shotgun, if not then head
    through the door on the right.  A locked door is ahead of so go right
    and press the button on the wall to open it.  Kill all the Strogg and
    head through the door they came out of and you'll see another locked
    door to the left, press the button next to it and head through it.
    There will be enemies above and below you so take them all out and
    press the button on the left and step onto the elevator to ride down to
    the room below.  Down here is another button under a locked door high
    above it, press it and go back to the elevator and take a ride back up.
    To the left is another elevator, go step onto it and take a ride up,
    press the button on the left to make a bridge extend below it, drop
    down onto it and head straight through the door to have your first
    encounter with a Berserker.  A Super Shotgun blast point blank range in
    the face is the best way to kill these.
    
         Follow the line of Stimpacks to a door blocked by a force field,
    charge into the room left of it and let the slaughterfest begin.  When
    it's over look for a yellow switch to shot in the room behind the
    forcefield to disable it.  Go through the now open door and press the
    button on the console to make an exploding barrel smash through a door.
    Look for another button to press behind you, this will make a secret
    area open to your left with some items in it.  Go through the door you
    just blew open and follow the corridor through a few more doors, you'll
    enter a room with a bunch of crates below, grab the Flak Jacket ontop
    of one of the crates and drop into the room below.  Go through the door
    down here and you'll come across a locked one, press the button next to
    it to open the door and step onto the elevator.  When the ride is over
    you'll see two crates hanging by hooks in front of you, press the
    button on the console to lower them.  Continue to another locked door,
    press the button next to it to open it and take another elevator ride
    down.  Go through the door and you'll spot a bridge going across the
    lava, there's a button on the right that lowers the bridge into the
    lava but you don't need to press it.
    
         Cross the bridge and drop onto the ledge below just before the
    doorway for a secret area, there is a hole down here, drop into it and
    step onto the elevator to find the Chain Gun, a really good weapon this
    thing is but shoot it off in short bursts or you'll blow through 200
    rounds in five seconds if you hold thr trigger down.  Drop down to the
    bridge below and go through the doorway at the end of the bridge you
    didn't pass through before, follow the corridor to a room with water
    and crates floating all around, there is a button on the right and a
    locked door to the left.   Jump into the water and use the crates to
    get to the button on the right, this will open up the door across from
    you so go through it, just jump along the floating crates to get there.
    Follow the corridor to another button, press it to lower yet another
    elevator, step on and take a ride up.  Go through the door on the right
    and follow the corridor passing through several doors and you'll come
    to a split, to the right is the Warehouse and to the left is the Supply
    Station.  To play around in the Warehouse you need Power Cubes so go
    into the Supply Station.  Blow up the crate on the right and drop into
    the hole it was blocking only if you need ammo and health, if not then
    go through the door ahead of you to end this level.

      Main Mission Objective:
    - Destroy the Strogg logistical train.
    
      Secondary Objective:
    - Collect 4 power cubes to restore back power to the warehouse.
    
      Secret Areas: 1/3
    
    
         Kill all the Guards and drop into the area below and go through
    the door to the left of the elevator for a secret area with a Combat
    Suit.  Ride the elevator back up, go left and through the door on the
    right.  You'll be in a large room with a big crate moving around around
    below you.  Go right and press the button on the console to make a
    crate explode, drop into the room below and climb onto the ledge on the
    other side of the room, press the button up here to open a door below
    you.  Drop down and head through the door, in this room is a bunch of
    crates and Strogg, kill them and look for some crates to climb with
    some Adrenaline on it.  Drop off the crates and head straight to
    another button, press it lower an elevator, hop on and take a ride up.
    To your left are some laser beams blocking the corridor, take the Power
    Cube on your right to disable the lasers.
    
         Head down the corridor the lasers were blocking, head through the
    door you'll run into and grab that Flak Jacket on the crates, go step
    into yet another damn elevator to take a ride down.  There are two
    locked doors to your right and a button on the left, press the button
    and wait for a moving crate to go through one of the locked doors,
    follow it through the door.  To your immediate right is a moving
    conveyor belt, follow it through a door to see the Strogg logistical
    train.  Use one of its cars to jump to the other side of the room, kill
    the Gunner that's trying to kill you and then press the button you see
    on the console to destroy the train and complete your primary
    objective.  Just past this console is another button, press it to raise
    the second Power Cube and take it.  Go and crouch under the train car
    that exploded to spot a button in the floor, go stand on it and climb
    the ladder that drops to find the third Power Cube and a bunch of Armor
    Shards.
    
         Go through the wall that drops next to you, follow this vent shaft
    to a cover, approach it and it will open so drop down into a room.
    Look for a ladder to climb on the left and do so, head into a large
    room with crates to your right and kill all the Strogg in here.  Look
    for a button to press on the wall behind some crates, this lowers some
    stairs next to you so go down them.  Step onto another elevetor on the
    left to take another ride down, kill the Gunner in this dark area and
    climb up the ladder you'll see.  Press the button on the left to make
    two platforms start moving in the room below, go stand on one and take
    a ride up.  Jump off at the top, go right and through the door to find
    the last Power Cube and your objective will get updated, back to the
    Ammo Depot we go.  Go through the door on the right and clear the room
    of Strogg.  Climb up a ladder you'll see and press the button on the
    console up here to open a door below you, drop down and head through
    it.  Step onto an elevator and then go up some stairs, follow the
    corridor to more stairs going down, continue along to a door and a
    button, I think you know what to do.  Head through the door to be back
    in a room you were in earlier with the moving crate.  Go ride the
    elevator directly across from you, go through the door on the right and
    follow the corridor back to the Ammo Depot to end this level.

    - Completed.
    
      Secondary Objective:
    - Restore power to key Warehouse components.
    
      Secret Areas:  2/2
    
    
       Run straight until you enter the Warehouse, open the panel on the
    left and insert one of the Power Cubes to restore some power.  Ride
    another elevator up and enter the Warehouse on the right.  Now we're
    officially in the Warehouse.  The room is pitch black, head forwards
    and then down the corridor on the right, open the panel on the wall and
    insert another Power Cube to brighten the place up.  Take another
    elevator ride up on the left, kill the Berserker and continue along to
    some stairs, descend them and clear the room of Strogg.  In this room
    is a conveyor belt and an open doorway, go through the doorway, follow
    the corridor to yet another elevator, hop on and take a ride down.
    Enter the room with stacks of crates all around and get ready to make
    some more scrumptious cyborg jelly for your breakfast bagel.  Look for
    a Power Cube console and insert a cube to restore more power, turn
    around and step onto the platform at the top of the stairs.  Now the
    conveyor belt is moving you saw a minute ago, step onto it and then go
    through the now open door at the other end of it, kill a couple of
    Enforcers and hit the two buttons next to you, one to open a door and
    the other to lower a platform.  Go step onto the platform and go
    through the door, then another one to be high above the room on a
    ledge, you can see a conveyor belt across from you.  Drop into the room
    below and insert the last Power Cube into the panel on the wall, this
    restores the Warehouse to full power and your objective will get
    updated.
    
         Ride the elevator back up to the ledge above you and use the now
    moving platforms to jump to that coveyor belt you saw a second ago.  Go
    across the conveyor belt and hang a left, kill the Gunner and then
    press the button behind it, this makes a crate deliver an exploding
    crate in front of a door.  Shoot it to blow a hole in the door, head on
    through and follow the corridor to a button, press it to make a winding
    staircase appear in front of you.  Go down the stairs and shoot the
    first window out when you see it, look behind the crates below to spot
    a yellow switch, shoot it and this makes another staircase going down
    appear.  Go down them to find a secret area, in here is a Flak Jacket,
    Adrenaline, and a bunch of health and ammo.  Go back up the stairs and
    head through the door next to the crates, enter another room with
    crates all around and get ready to meet Tank, one bad ass mother f'n
    cyborg.  Just blast away at it with the Chain Gun and lob some grenades
    at it and it shouldn't give you that much trouble, remeber to use
    corners to your advantage while fighting a Tank.  When it keels over
    and dies, go and use the computer he was guarding to unlock a door near
    where you entered this room.  Go through it and kill the Strogg across
    the way, in the room below is a bunch of crates with lots of items on
    them, go into the little room on the left and press the button to make
    a platform start moving across the room.  Look up and you'll see a
    yellow switch in the ceiling, shoot it to lower a ladder and then climb
    it to find Quad Damage, another ladder is in front of you, ignore it
    'cause nothing's up there.  Go and jump onto the moving platform and
    use it to jump to the ledge on the other side of the room and head
    through the door.  Press the button on the left and then go through the
    door on the right, walk up to the exit sign and press the button, go
    onto the conveyor belt in front of you and take a ride to end this
    level.

      Main Mission Objective:
    - Destroy the security grid surrounding the industrial region.
    
      Secondary Objective:
    - Penetrate the outer jail defenses.
    
      Secret Areas:  0/2
    
    
         If you want that Flak Jacket in front of you ontop of the crate
    then don't shoot the barrel for that is how you get to the jacket.  Go
    through the door on the right and kill a couple of Gunners, don't drop
    into the water below.  Follow the corridor past the Armor Shards and go
    through the slamming doors, emerge into a  room and kill all the
    cyborgs, head outside to the left and then drop into the water below.
    Swim through the tunnel you'll see (swim along the surface so you don't
    waste a Rebreather if you happen to have one) and you'll emerge into a
    large circular room with a tunnel beneath you blocked by spinning
    blades.  Surface and climb out of the water, grab the Silencer and kill
    the Gunner through the slats and shoot the red bar you see on the wall
    to stop the spinning blades in the tunnel beneath you.  Go and swim
    through the tunnel, you may have to crouch in-between the blades, and
    then surface, get out of the water and follow the corridor around to
    the left to find a bunch of Armor Shards, health and ammo.  You'll see
    a ladder, shoot the grate off above it and climb it, take the Gunner
    out from behind and step onto an elevator straight ahead.  Up here is a
    switch, go stand on it to make a large door open beneath you.  Look
    down and kill the Enforcer manning a really big cannon and drop down to
    where it is and head through the door that just opened, press the
    button and ride the elevator to end this level.  The corridor to the
    right of this elevator just takes you back near the start of the level
    and is loaded with Strogg to piss all over your parade, there's nothing
    to find that way but pain and misery so don't bother going to check
    shit out.

      Main Mission Objective:
    - Destroy the security grid surrounding the industrial region.
    
      Secondary Objectives:
    - Locate the blue Key Card.
    - Use the key card to gain access to Detention Center.
    
      Secret Areas:  0/2
    
    
         Go right and grab the probably well needed shells, contine down
    some stairs and through the doorway to kill another Tank who is
    guarding the door you need the blue Key Card for.  Take the Bandolier
    (this increases the ammount of ammo you can carry) by his dead body and
    go down the stairs on the left, follow the corridor to some more
    stairs, head down them and kill another Gladiator, take the blue Key
    Card and your secondary objective will get updated.  If you need armor
    then go into the watery area past the card, if not then back to the
    door you need the card for and head on through and your secondary
    objective will be updated once again.  Go left or right and emerge
    outside, to the right is the door you need the red Key Card for,
    straight across is an elevator, and left is a closed door.  Step onto
    the elevator and take a ride up, kill the Gladiator across the way and
    waste the Gunner below you.  Drop down to the Chain Gun and a bunch of
    ammo for it.  Drop off of the ledge you're on and go through the door
    on the right, then go down the corridor on the right and a Berserker
    will come charging after you down some stairs, press the button on the
    wall just to the right of the stairs.  Go up the stairs and take
    advantage of the elevated position and kill the Gladiator down below,
    drop down to where it was and you'll see a bunch of fellow Marines
    locked in cells.  Press the buttons on the walls next to the cells to
    open them for ammo and health.  After you search the cells (some
    Marines leave behind ammo if you kill them) go through the doorway and
    press the green button, go left or right and you'll meet a Medic, fast
    little freaks so watch out.  Go through the door with the green light
    in it to end this level for now.

      Secondary Objective:
    - Locate the red key card.
    
      Secret areas:  0/1
    
    
         Kill the Gunner in front of you and you'll see stairs ahead of
    you, a tunnel to the right of you, and a door to your left.  Go into
    the tunnel on the right and kill the Tank at the end of it by the
    yellow lasers.  Exit the tunnel and go up the stairs on the right and
    follow the corridor to a large room with stairs going down and stairs
    going up to your left and right.  Go up either set of stairs and go
    into the corridor with a bunch of Stimpacks, continue along to the red
    Key Card and take it, your objective will get updated and you need to
    head back to the Detention Center.  On the way back go down the stairs
    you didn't before and crouch under them to snag another Bondolier, also
    crouch into a container down here for two Quad Damages.  Continue back
    to the Detention Center.

      Secondary Objective:
    - Find the yellow laser control computer.
    
      Secret Areas:  0/2
    
    
         Make your way back to where the door is that requires the red Key
    Card to open, do so and head on through.  Go through the corridor and
    take the Flak Jacket you'll run into if you need it.  Continue along
    into a room with a grate in the floor, go through the door on the right
    and there will be a corridor directly ahead and stairs to your left, go
    up them and then down another flight that will be on the right to
    finally find another weapon, the Grenade Launcher.  This weapon is
    quite effective, aim kind of high when you lob a round.  You may also
    notice that the Strogg are getting to be more heavily infested the
    deeper you go into the complex and the game is starting to become a bit
    more difficult.  Cheer up, you haven't seen nothing yet, wait about
    five more levels for some really hairy situations.  Go back up the
    stairs and through the corridor on the left to an elevator, ride it up
    to see some yellow lasers on the right, go use the computer on the left
    to disable the yellow lasers and your objective will get updated.
    Seems we have to go back to the Security Complex so do so to end this
    level.

         Go into the tunnel on the right and continue to where the yellow
    lasers were blocking the computer console the last time you were in
    here, use the computer to make a bridge appear on the right and you'll
    have your first run in with an Icarus, the Machine Gun works well on
    them.  Cross the bridge and head through the door, go down the stairs
    and enter a room with another Tank in it, blow his ass up and then head
    through the door with the green light in it to end this level for now.

    - Retreive the Data CD from cell block A and gain access to cell
      block B.
    
      Secret Areas:  1/3
    
    
         Go down the corridor and kill another Tank, after he drops go
    behind where he was standing and go right to find a secret area with a
    Hyper Blaster, put this bad boy to use immediately, you should have
    plenty of ammo for it.  Go back to where you killed Tank and step onto
    the button in the floor to lower the elevator in front of it, take a
    ride down and face the button on the wall.  Go down the corridor on the
    left and head down some stairs, you'll come across another set of
    stairs going down, don't go down them.  Continue along and you'll see
    two signs on the wall, cell block A to the right and cell block B to
    the left.  Go into cell block A and follow the corridor to a cosole
    with the Data CD, press the button and grab the CD, step onto the
    platform next to you and ride up.  Go through the door to see a dude
    about to get chopped in half by a saw, grab the Armor Shards on the
    right and then through the door on the left.  Drop down onto the ledge
    below and head into cell block B.  Take out another Tank and you'll see
    more Marines locked inside of cells below you, drop down there and
    search all the cells for a bunch of Stimpacks, inside one of the cells
    is a hole in the floor, drop into it.  Grab the Rebreather on the right
    and head towards the large pipe and it will open, jump into the water
    and swim through the very long pipe and surface, get out of the water
    and blast some Guards away, use the console you see and your secondary
    objective will get updated.  Grab the Security Pass by the console and
    go through the door, then use the computer console in front of you to
    open a door on the right.  Head down the corridor and then go through a
    door on the right to see an exit sign on the wall, continue along and
    go through another door on the right to end this level.

    - Find the pyramid key card and return to the Security Complex.
    
      Secret Areas:  2/3
    
    
       You'll only be in the Security Complex for a minute so head right
    and go through the door, keep following the corridor until you get to
    another Tank.  After you blow it up drop into the area below and grab
    the Power Shield by the downed aircraft next to the door with the green
    light, go through the door to enter the Guard House.  Search the cells
    to your left and right and kill the Marines for some ammo.  Go step
    onto the platform and take a ride up, follow the corridor to the left
    and continue along to some stairs going down into a room, shoot the
    barrels to revel a hole in the wall, crouch into the hole for a secret
    are and probably a well needed Ammo Pack.  Continue down the stairs and
    head through a door to emerge outside, grab the Stimpacks on the left
    and keep left to find some more and some armor.  Drop onto the walkway
    below you and go through the door with the Mutant behind it, enter a
    room with some cracked doors on the left.  Crouch through the door with
    hole in it and shoot the cracked wall in front of you for a secret
    area.  Leave here and go back out the doorway you entered and jump into
    the water to find a Mega Health on the bottom.  Get out of the water
    and go through the doorway to snag a Hyper Blaster, be careful not to
    fall into the spike trap below, if you do then just climb the ladder
    back up here.  Step onto the platform on the left and take a ride up,
    continue through a door and follow the walkway to some stairs going up
    ahead of you and some stairs going down to your right, go down the
    stairs.  Shoot the exploding crate to find another Super Adrenaline,
    grab the armor in here and follow the corridor to emerge outside and
    waste all of the Strogg running around.  After you've layed down the
    law you'll notice a corridor blocked by a force field, go up the stairs
    Tank was on and press the button on the wall to disable the force
    field.  Head down the stairs by all of the Armor Shards to find another
    Power Shield.  Go through the now open corridor and continue along to
    the pyramid key, your secondary objective will get updated.  Make your
    way all the way back to the Security Complex to end this level.

      Secondary Objective:
    - Locate and destroy grid control computer.
    
      Secret Areas:  0/0
    
    
         Head straight and through the corridor, follow it through a door
    and then go up the stairs on the left, this place should look very
    familiar by now.  Continue along and go down some more stairs, head
    straight and you'll be at the pyramid, put the key in the console and
    the pyramid will open up, ride the elevator down and head through the
    door, press the button to take another elevator ride to enter Grid
    Control.  Go up the lighted staircase in front of you and to your left
    and right are pillars with disappearing lasers, you can go in-between
    them for some armor and a Grenade Launcher.  Head down either corridor
    at the top of the stairs and go left or right.  You'll come across some
    more laser beams, wait for them to disappear and slowly make your way
    down the corridor.  When safely down the corridor go step onto either
    elevator on the left or right, immediately take out the Tank, after it
    croaks qiuckly take down another one.  The ground will begin to shake
    and the first boss will make an entrance, a Tank Commander, the Hyper
    Blaster and straving are your best defenses.  After the commander has
    fallen, climb down the ladder in the middle of the arena and follow the
    pipe along the ceiling to a large blue laser, step onto the elevator
    across from the laser and take a ride up.  The door in front of you is
    blocked by a force field so turn around and look for a green button to
    press, do so to expose a large blue diamond laser thing, destroy it to
    finally complete your main mission objective.  The door that was
    previously blocked by the force field is now open, go down the corridor
    to exit this area.

    take out the Strogg, to the right is a Hyper Blaster, straight ahead is
    the main Factory doors and they're locked.  Go to the right of the main
    doors and just before the entrance to a corridor look to the right of
    it and down to spot a Power Shield on a ledge, jump to it.  Now go
    through the corridor you just saw, grab the Flak Jacket on the left and
    continue along to a large room and kill all the idiots running around.
    From where you entered the room look up and to the left to spot a
    yellow switch on the wall, shoot it to make a set of stairs rise.  Go
    up the stairs and down the grassy path on the left, go left and then go
    down the set of stairs that will be on the left.  Continue through the

      Secret Areas:  0/2
    
    
         Grab the Flak Jacket in front of you and follow the corridor on
    the left and you'll enter a large cavern with a path going up to the
    right, a big grinder type machine in the floor and an elevator to the
    left of the grinder.  Go up the path on the right to find the Rocket
    Launcher, a very good weapon against the stronger Strogg so put this to
    good use, just make sure your sights are on target before you fire this
    weapon 'cause it's relly easy to miss the enemy.  Go step onto the
    elevator and kill all the Guards lurking around when the ride stops,
    there's a lot of 'em so be quick or be dead.  When they're all dead
    look in the hole in the floor to spot some Adrenaline, drop down to it
    if you want.  If you do drop down there, drop down another hole to land
    on the grinder and take massive damage, then just step back onto the
    elevator to be back up here.  Go down the corridor up here and kill a
    Gladiator, head left and up the stairs and continue along through
    another corridor and eventually emerge outside.  Kill the Icarus'
    flying around and you'll notice a large hole in the ground with stairs
    leading down to a corridor and a large fan blade, don't head down there
    yet.  Go down the tunnel on the right and continue along to some armor,
    go up the tunnel on the right and you'll see a Rocket Launcher in-
    between some pillars.  Continue along to a button on the floor, stand
    on it and go up the stairs on the right, you'll emerge into a large
    area with a path on the right and a large steel structure ahead of you,
    go towards the structure and walk across the bridge, enter the
    structure and press the button on the wall to complete your secondary
    objective.  Go back across the bridge and head left, kill a couple of
    Gunners and step onto the button to make a bridge extend, cross it and
    go right and follow the corridor to that big hole in the ground.  Go
    down the stairs and enter the tunnel on the right, take a ride down on
    the elevator and then head through the door on the left to end this
    level.

      Secret Areas:  1/3
    
    
         To your left is an elevator that isn't active yet.  Head forwards
    and kill the Gladiator around the corner, go down some stairs and hang
    a right and follow the corridor to some more stairs, head down them and
    clear the room of Strogg.  Check under the stairs for a secret area
    with some armor and rockets.  You'll see a hole in the floor, ignore it
    for now.  Head through the corridor and waste a couple of Gladiators,
    eventually you'll come across two buttons, press them to activate the
    drilling machinery and complete your secondary objective.  Go back to
    the hole I told you to ignore and drop down into it.  There are two
    tunnels, go down the right one and when you get to an area with slats
    across from you, look under the walkway to find a Quad Damage.  Turn
    around and follow the tunnel back to where you dropped into the hole
    and go through the other one to emerge in an area with a couple of
    Berserkers, waste them and step onto the elevator to take a ride up.
    Drop through the hole in the floor and go through the corridor on the
    right to be back where you started the level, go use the elevator on
    the right, go through the door down here to end this level.

         Head forwards and go down the stairs on the right, waste some more
    Strogg and continue through the corridor on the right and crouch under
    some slamming doors.  Keep following the corridor to waste another
    Gladiator and Gunner, pull the lever they were guarding to lower a
    bridge and complete half of your secondary objective.  Go all the way
    back to the start of the level to the elevator you rode down on, press
    one of the buttons on it to take a ride down, head through the door and
    waste the Gunners.  Shoot the red bars on the wall above the Gunners to
    lower a large steel door.  Search the room for items and head through
    the door, follow the tunnel and kill a couple of Mutants, grab the Flak
    Jacket on the right and continue along down the tunnel on the left.
    You'll come across a huge drill type thing, use the lever on the other
    side of it to make a hole appear beneath it, drop down into the hole to
    end this level.

      Main Mission Objective:
    - Navigate mines and find entrance to the Factory.
    
      Secondary Objective:
    - Unstable conditions ahead, proceed with caution.
    
      Secret Areas: 0/0
    
    
         Head forwards and you'll have your first encounter with some
    Technicians.  Kill them and pull the lever on the other side of the
    room to make a platform start moving across from it.  Go and ride the
    platform up and hop off in the first room you get to, waste the
    Technicians and Gunner, go up the path the Gunner came down and you'll
    come to a lever, kill the Tank below, you can use the lever to drop a
    large boulder onto the Tank.  Drop down to where the Tank was and grab
    the Quad Damage he left behind as a wonderful parting gift and press
    the button on the drill, this makes a laser blow a hole in the wall.
    Go through the hole in the wall and you'll see a Rocket Launcher on the
    right, grab it and QUICKLY go back through the hole or you'll get
    pushed by a huge drilling machine right into a wall and die.  After it
    passes by, follow the tunnel it went down and cross the bridge on the
    right, be careful not to fall off 'cause the ground starts shaking
    really bad and can throw you into the lava far below to a fiery grave.
    Continue down the tunnel to a platform, ride it up and continue along
    to a door, go through it to  be back in the Drilling Area.  Head
    forwards, kill another Tank and step through the exit to complete your
    main mission objective and enter the Factory.

         Kill the Guards ahead of you and go into the corridor they were
    in, to your left are some laser beams blocking the corridor, to your
    right is a closed door.  Go towards the lasers and look on the right
    wall for a button, press it to mak a large grate open next to you
    leading down into a pipe, drop into it to land in some water.  Follow
    the pipe and you'll enter a large room filled with lava, look down and
    kill the Guard below, then drop down to where he was and press the
    button on the wall to lower a bridge.  Cross the bridge and then pull
    the lever on the right to drain the lava.  Drop into the now empty lava
    pit and press a button on the wall to open up a pipe above you.  Climb
    the stairs out of the pit and go down the corridor on the right to a
    platform, ride it up and jump into the pipe you just opened.  Follow
    the pipe and climb the ladder to have your first encounter with a
    Brain, kill it and head into the corridor to find a button, press it
    and go back to where you climbed out of the pipe and ride the middle
    platform you see up to a Flak Jacket, drop into the room below.  Head
    up the stairs on the left and go through a door, cross the bridge and
    hang a left to spot a button on the wall, press it and go through
    through the door next to it to be at the other end of the corridor that
    was behind the laser beams at the start of the level, they're now
    disabled.  Go right and you'll be on a bridge full of Stimpacks, you'll
    spot a waterfall, jump into it to find a secret level called Sudden
    Death (thanks Nemesis452 for sending me this secret).  In here you'll
    have 30 seconds to grab as many items in here as you can; there are a
    lot of Stimpacks, Armor Shards, ammo, weapons, and even some Bandoliers
    and Heavy Packs, there's even a Hyper Blaster in here, one of the best
    weapons in the game.  When the 30 seconds are up you'll be back on the
    bridge, drop into the water below and head through the corridor down
    here to find a secret area and the Rail Gun, wait until the Strogg get
    a taste of this bad ass weapon.  A walkway lowers so head up it and
    test your new toy out on the Parasite charging you.  Head straight to
    the end of the corridor and go through to kill a Guard and two Gunners.
    Strafe left and try to kill that Guard across the way before he runs
    onto the bridge to explode it.  It's hard to do and if you're playing
    the PC version of this game like I am then quick save/load is a
    wonderful thing right now.  Cross the bridge and blow up the crates to
    snag another Quad Damage, go left and waste a Gladiator, you'll see a
    room on the left with lasers on the floor, head through the door on the
    right to end this level for now.

    --------------------
    
       Main Mission Objective:
    - Shut down alien Processing Plant.
    
      Secondary Mission Objective:
    - Shut down all machines.
    
      Secret Areas:  0/3
    
    
         Straight ahead is a winding staircase with Stimpacks on it, to
    your left is a locked door, and to your right is a corridor blocked by
    laser beams.  Go up the winding staircase and collect all of the
    Stimpacks, kill a copule of Gunners, grab the Flak Jacket and press the
    button on the wall to disable the lasers blocking that one corridor.
    Head through the now open corridor and a Tank will rise out of the
    floor on a platform, waste it.  To your right is an area with bloody
    water (don't jump into it or you'll lose health), wait for a moving
    platform to rise out of the water and hop on to take a ride up, jump
    off at the top and you'll see a locked door ahead of you, press the two
    buttons on the left and right to open the door and head on through.  Go
    down the incline and press the button on the console you see to shut
    down the first machine, go through the door to the left of the console
    to enter a large room.  Waste all of the Strogg running around and go
    down the stairs on the right by a locked door or ride the platform on
    the left to get down into the room below.  There's a large pillar type
    thing in the middle of the room, shoot the cracked panes of glass on
    the wall in front of the pillar to find another Flak Jacket, go into
    the room on the left to be in the pillar and press the button on the
    wall to disable the second piece of alien machinery.
    
         Go back up the stairs and head through the now open door at the
    top of them, follow the corridor and go through a door on the left,
    kill the Parasite chasing you down and cross the bridge it was on and
    go through the door.  You'll see a fast moving conveyor belt in front
    of you, use it to jump to the other side of the room and go right, use
    the conveyor belt once again to jump to the button on the right.  Press
    the button to disble the third piece of machinery, step onto the
    platform next to you and take a ride up.  Go through the door in front
    of you to enter a heavily infested room and start laying down the law.
    When all the Strogg are dead you'll notice two locked doors and a
    platform in the floor, go step onto the platform to take a ride up,
    press the button on the wall up here to deactivate the fourth piece of
    alien machinery.  Go back down to the previously locked doors and head
    through either one to some stairs, go down them and press the button on
    the console to disable the fifth piece of machinery.  Follow the
    corridor next to the console to an elevator, step on and take a ride
    up, then go down the corridor on the right and head through a door.
    Kill the Guards in the room and press the button you see to deactivate
    the sixth machine.  Go back through the door and head straight to jump
    across a room full of bloody water and head through the door, press the
    button on the left to deactive the seventh and last piece of alien
    machinery to complete both of your objectives.  Go down the corridor by
    the button and head through the door and ride down on the moving
    platform, press the button on the wall to open the door next to it and
    head on through to be back where you started the level, head through
    the exit on the right and go back to the Receiving Area.

         To your right will be a room you should remember with the laser
    beam floor.  Platforms are now moving around the room so jump onto one
    and use it to get to the corridor across the way.  Head through the
    corridor and then through a door on the left, go down the staircase and
    follow the room around to the areas exit.  Just before the exit look
    for a yellow switch recessed inside of a pillar on the left wall, shoot
    it and head back down the corridor and look for a secret area on the
    right with a bunch of ammo and health.  Head through the exit to enter
    the Power Plant.

      Main Mission Objective:
    - Infiltrate and destroy Strogg main reactor.
    
      Secondary Mission Objective:
    - Find reactor. Expose reactor core.
    
      Secret Areas:  1/2
    
    
         You'll start the level off in a large open area outdoors and you
    can hear a Tank Commander rolling around below.  Stay on the ledge
    above the arena and kill the commander from the elevated position.
    After the commander falls, drop into the arena below and look for a Red
    Key to snag.  After you do look for a ladder you must climb down, do so
    and follow the corridor to a platform, ride it up for some Body Armor
    worth 75 armor.  Head forwards to meet a couple of Iron Maidens, these
    chics are brutal opponents and the Rail Gun from a distance works quite
    well on them.  Shoot some exploding barrels on the left to expose a
    secret area, go through the hole in the wall and step onto a platform,
    raise up and follow the corridor to find the BFG, the best weapon in
    the game but each round requires 50 units to shoot so save this bad boy
    for the tougher opponents like Tanks and Gladiators, or to take an
    entire room of enemies out with one blast.  Turn around and go back
    into the room where you met the Iron Maidens, go through the red door
    and down the corridor on the left to a door that requires the Red Key
    to open.  Head on through and clear the area of Strogg and be careful
    of the pits spewing explosive debris, collect all of the health and
    probably well needed ammo and go back to where you've found the BFG.
    Climb out of the window on the left and try to jump onto the paltform
    below with the closed door on it, if you don't make it you'll have to
    make your way back up here to try again.  Go through the door to enter
    the next level.

      Secondary Mission Objective:
    - Find reactor. Expose reactor core.
    
      Secret Areas:  1/1
    
    
         Kill the two Gunners in front of you and head down the corridor on
    the left (to the right leads to a locked door that requires the Data CD
    to open) and waste another Gladiator.  After you kill it go through the
    door behind it and follow the heavily infested corridor to some stairs,
    go down them and clear the area of cyborgs to open up a gate leading to
    the Data CD, go grab it.  After you snag the cd more enemies appear, go
    up to where the Iron Maiden is to find some more Body Armor worth 100
    armor, whoo-hoo.  Go down the corridor directly across from the cd and
    head through another door, kill the Gladiator and head through the door
    on the right.  As soon as the door opens shoot the wall to expose a
    secret area, climb up the ladder for a couple of Armor Shards and
    Adrenaline.  The corridor below takes you to a door blocked by a force
    field that you can't disble yet.  Go back down the ladder and back
    through the door, straight ahead takes you to the Toxic Waste Dump that
    you can't access yet so go back to the door that requires the Data CD
    to open and go on through. Kill a couple of Gladiators and one will
    leave behind a Quad Damage, continue along through a laser booby
    trapped corridor and waste all the Gunners at the end.  Head right and
    ride the platform up, continue along and go through the corridor on the
    left and keep going to an elevator, hop on and take a ride down.  Head
    through the corridor down here and go through the door to be at the
    reactor core.  Pull the lever on the left to expose the core and your
    secondary objective will get updated.  Climb down the ladder by the
    lever and down here are two corridors on either side of you and a
    platform leading up to the door leading to the Big Gun area which you
    can't open yet.  Go down the corridor on the left (the right one takes
    you back to the force field that was previously blocking the door, it's
    now disabled), and head through the door with exit sign.

      Secondary Mission Objective:
    - Activate cooling pump and lower coolant around reactor.
    
      Secret Areas:  1/3
    
    
         Head forwards and drop into the pipe, follow it outside and
    destroy a bunch of foe, a blast from the BFG would be great right about
    now.  Try not to blow up the barrels on the left, use them to get onto
    the the crate with the Chain Gun, press the button up here on the wall
    to open to the floor beneath you, don't drop down there.  Go up the
    stairs across from where you started the level and follow the corridor
    to some more stairs, head up them and clear the area.  Go and drop into
    the hole you just opened up a minute ago to be in a sewer.  Try not to
    go into the water because the current is really strong and if you want
    some Adrenaline then don't go into the water yet.  Walk along the outer
    edge to the left to enter a circular room with a bunch of Stimpacks and
    Armor Shards.  Walk along the left edge of the waterway and round a
    corner, slowly walk down the incline and climb down the ladder on the
    left for a secret area with Adrenaline in it.  Climb back up the ladder
    and go down the incline to a room full of ammo and enemies.  Continue
    down the waterway to end up in a large pool with some platforms moving
    up and down to the right and straight ahead.  Go up either one and
    waste a couple of Berserkers, go through the door up here and then
    through another one to be in a large room with a big pipe ahead of you.
    Go turn the valve on the pipe to complete half your secondary
    objective, go climb onto the crates and jump onto the now moving
    platform in the pipe and take a ride up.  Jump to the button across
    from you to complete your secondary objective, you will be given a new
    objective of returning back to the Reactor.
    
         Next to the button are some crates, climb onto them and then jump
    onto the piston moving up and down, jump onto the next one and follow
    the corridor up here to a platform, hop on and take a ride up.  Follow
    the waterway ahead of you to a place you were at near the start of the
    level.  Head forwards and drop through the hole in the floor that
    wasn't there before, head through the door to be back at the Reactor.
    Head forwards and drop through a hole and your secondary objective will
    get updated and we need to go to the Toxic Waste Dump.  Go through the
    corridor on the right and follow it all the way past the reactor core
    and keep going straight to enter a large outdoor area.  There's a BFG
    on the right, go into the pipe on the left and follow it all the way to
    a hole, drop into it to enter the Toxic Waste Dump.

      Main Mission Objective:
    - Infiltrate and destroy Strogg main reactor.
    
      Secondary Mission Objective:
    - Activate pumping stations one and two.
    
      Secret Areas:  1/2
    
    
         Head forwards and you'll see a Hyper Blaster on the right, jump
    across the acid if you're in need of the ammo.  Continue along and kill
    a few Guards and emerge into an outdoor area with an acid lake, don't
    step into it.  Step onto the platform on the rught and take a ride up,
    follow the walkway and head through the door on the right, waste the
    Iron Maidens and search the room for a bunch of Stimpacks.  Climb the
    flight of stairs in this room and take out all of the enemies along the
    corridor, including another Tank.  Hop onto the platform the Tank was
    guarding and take a ride up, step off of the platform and turn around.
    You'll see a Ammo Pack on a ledge to your left.  Go to the right and
    jump to the pipes going across the room, now jump up to the Ammo Pack,
    this will refill most of your ammunition for all of your weapons.  Go
    down the corridor at the top of the moving platform and head through a
    door, you'll see a bridge, there is a waterway beneath it flowing with
    acid, if you have an Enviornment suit then drop down to the waterway
    and follow it into a secret area with another Enviornment Suit.  Go
    back up the acid waterway (you have to continuously jump into it due to
    the strong current) and drop down below and make your way back up to
    the bridge.  Go through the corridor on the other side of the bridge
    and make a left, waste all of the enemies and take notice of all the
    branching corridors leading off of the one you're in.  The first
    corridor leading right leads to a locked door you can't open yet.  Go
    down the first corridor on the left and blow up some barrels on the
    left to blow a hole in the wall leading to a button, go press it to be
    able to access pumping station one.  Head forwards and drop into the
    hole to enter Pumping Station one.

      Secondary Mission Objective:
    - Activate pumping station one.
    
      Secret Areas:  1/3
    
    
         Go down either corridor and clear the room of Strogg, go up the
    stairs on the right to kill some more and step onto the platform to
    take a ride up.  You've probably noticed that the game is increasingly
    getting more difficult and will continue to do so. Go up the incline on
    the left and shoot out the wall just above the crates to the right to
    find a secret area, go in there and jump through the hole to land in
    some water.  Follow the pipe to an elevator, step on and take a ride
    up, grab the Adrenaline on the ledge and drop into the pipe directly
    below it.  Swim through the pipe and you'll emerge outside, climb out
    of the water via the rocks and head through the door next to the BFG.
    Follow the darkened corridor and head through another door, head right
    for some Stimpacks and a Combat Suit.  Drop into the room below to be
    back where you blew a hole in the wall, go down the passage to the
    right of the hole and you'll see the exit leading to Pumping Station
    two.  Pull the lever on the right wall to active pump number one, head
    through the door to enter the second Pumping Station.

    - Infiltrate and destroy Strogg main reactor.
    
      Secondary Mission Objective:
    - Activate pumping station two.
    
      Secret Areas:  1/4
    
         Follow the corridor and go up the incline, continue along and
    there will be a locked door on the left that requires a Blue Key to
    open.  Head through the corridor on the right and go through a door and
    waste two Tanks, pull the lever on the left to activate the second pump
    and your secondary objective will get updated and the orders are to go
    back to the reactor.  Drop into the hole in the floor and you'll be in
    a tunnel.  Up the incline is an elevator, don't step onto it yet.  Go
    down the tunnel the other way and continue along to a square room with
    a bunch of pipes everywhere.  In here is a ladder and a corridore,
    ignore the ladder for now and head through the corridor to a BFG, to
    the right of it is some acid.  Equip your Enviornment Suit and quickly
    run through the acid for a secret area with Adrenaline, now go back and
    climb up the ladder you just ignored to find a Mega Health, make your
    way back to the elevator at the top of the incline and take a ride up.
    Snag the Blue Key and drop into the room below where you activated the
    pump, head to the door that requires the key to open and head on
    through.
    
         Follow the corridor and you'll come up to an acid pit, go through
    the pipe on the left to find an Enviornment Suit, you can go into the
    acid down here and look for a pipe to go into with some Body Armore in
    it.  Go and jump across the acid pit and go through the door on the
    right to exit the Pumping Station.  Kill the Tank on the right and
    proceed up the incline on the right, press the button on the left to
    extend a walkway to the right.  Go across the walkway and follow the
    corridor to a place that should look familiar 'cause you were in here a
    couple of levels ago.  When you come to a split, go right and snag
    another Enviornment Suit.  Go left and all the way to the end of the
    corridor, head left to exit the Toxic Waste Dump.  Step onto the button
    in front of you to extend a bridge, go across it and head down the
    steps on the right, follow the corridor on the left to some acid.  Walk
    the thin line on the right all the way through to the door at the other
    end of the corridor, continue along when you get to the Reactor go up
    the platform on the right and head through the door to enter the Big
    Gun area.

    - Eliminate all resistance.
    
      Secret Areas:  0/0
    
    
         Head towards the door in front of you and grab that Combat Suit on
    the crates to the left, head through the door to see a large diamond
    shaped object shooting a red laser beam into the sky.  There's a locked
    door across from you with a red light in it and a locked door to the
    left of you.  Approach the door on the left to spot a platform just to
    the left of it, hop on and take a ride up to make another boss appear.
    This thing looks like a giant robotic fly and is incredibly tough, use
    your BFG and Rocket Launcher to take it down.  After it dies your
    secondary objective will get updated and now we must lock the laser in
    place.  Head through the now open door with the red light in it.  Go to
    the right and head down the stairs and you'll see a laser beam to your
    left.  Go through the doorway on the right to a platform, ride it up
    and continue along wasting Guards everywhere.  When you enter a room
    with a button on the left DON'T PRESS IT YET!  Continue along and kill
    the rest of the enemies to eventually wind up on the other side of the
    laser beam you saw a minute ago, now go back to the button you didn't
    press.  When you press the button you will lock the laser beam you saw
    near the beginning of the level, you'll then have about fifteen seconds
    to high tail it out of this area or you will die.  Face the button and
    after you press it run down the corridor to the left of it, head
    straight and slightly left to drop down, head right and then go up the
    incline on the left, go right again and through the door on the left,
    then run through the door on the right and high tail it through the
    corridor and enter the ship on the right to destroy the Big Gun and
    advance to the next area.

         Go through the door in front of you and go right to stand on a
    switch to extend a bridge across the water, don't cross it yet.  Drop
    into the water below, kill all of the Baracuda Sharks and then look for
    a spinning blade leading into a pipe.  Shoot the red bar next to the
    spinning blade to make it stop, swim through the long tunnel and
    surface to find a secret area.  Enter a circular area on the left and
    take out another Tank, step into the elevator to reach a secret level.

      Secret Areas:  0/2
    
    
         The bay doors are wide open leading out into space so don't get
    sucked out, the elevator that took you in here is now blocked by a
    force field.  You'll see a computer console, use it to close the bay
    doors and just so you know you'll be able to jump really high for the
    whole level.  Approach the bay doors that closed to find another Power
    Shield and a bunch of ammo, head into the elevator by the computer
    console and take a ride up, follow the heavily infested Flyer corridor
    and you'll spot some stairs on the right blocked by a force field.
    Continue through the corridor and head through a door, hang a right and
    continue along to another door on the right and head on through, step
    onto the elevator and take a ride up.  Go down the corridor and you'll
    come to another door, go to the right of it and grab some Stimpacks,
    continue along to a button in the floor, stand on it and a message will
    appear on the screen telling you to destroy the computer, turn left and
    shoot the computer to disable the power core and complete your
    objective and be given a new one of taking out the Communications Dish.
    
         Go through the door you just passed and follow the corridor,
    you'll see a corridor leading left but ignore it for now, continue
    through the corridor and enter another large room with open bay doors
    to your left and an elevator blocked by a force field on the right.
    Use the computer console in here to close the bay doors, go search by
    the doors for a Combat Suit, Bandolier and ammo.  Head back to the
    corridor you just passed and head down it to enter a large area with a
    hole in the floor, another gigantic robot fly will appear so waste the
    thing.  After you kill it look up and you'll notice the communication
    dish above you, jump up into the four switches on the ceiling to lower
    the dish and it will be destroyed and your objectives for this secret
    area are complete.  Go back into the room where you closed the second
    bay door and ride the elevator to resume your previous mission.

         Snag the Ammo Pack to your immediate left and grab the Power
    Shield atop the crates a little further left.  Head down the stairs on
    the right and clear the area of Strogg, this will make a vault like
    door open in the back of the room so head through it and then another
    one.  Drop through the hole in the floor and the fan below will push
    you up into an area high above.  Use the computer console up here to
    turn of the Turbine.  Grab the Combat Suit below you and head through
    the door to be back in the room you started the level in.  Drop down
    and head through the door to be back at the spinning blade which is no
    longer spinning so drop into the hole in the floor to land on the
    Turbine.  Follow the corridor to enter a room with two small conveyor
    belts in the floor, press the button on the wall to open up the floor
    where the conveyor belts are, drop into one of the holes and try to
    land on the beam directly below.  Drop onto the ledge around the
    Turbine and grab the Armor Shards and ammo, drop into the water below
    and wait for the slow moving Turbine to revel a room, head in there and
    kill the Berserker and Gunners.  You'll spot three round storage
    crates, blow up one of them for a secret area with some Quad Damage.
    Head through the corridor next to the Quad Damage and you'll come
    across a large watery area with three large square platforms moving
    about the water.
    
         Jump onto the first one and then use it to jump to the second one
    and ride it to a button you must press, jump to the third platform and
    ride it to a ledge with some ammo and a Rebreather on it, also press
    the button on the wall up here to lower a few platforms above the
    water.  Use the moving platforms to jump up to the platform hanging in
    the middle of the room and it will lift you up to a corridor above.
    Follow the line of Stimpacks and drop into a hole, you'll see a moving
    gear ahead of you, go stand on it and then jump to the one spinning
    below you.  Ride around and look for a Power Shield to snag on a little
    ledge, ride the gear around to the corridor and follow it and head left
    or right when you get the chance to emerge into a room.  There's a
    doorway leading out into a large water filled area, kill another giant
    fly and drop down to the button below, go stand on it to extend a
    bridge across the water.  Jump into the water and look for a secret
    area below the switch you just stood on for a secret area with
    Adrenaline in it.  Go into the little room under the bridge to find
    another Combat Suit, look for a button in here to press, do so to raise
    a ladder behind you and obviously climb it.  Head across the bridge you
    extended and head to the left to a button, press it to lowe an elevator
    and step on it to take a ride up.  Immediately take out the Gunners
    pissing all over your parade, head down the corridor and pull thelever
    you'll see to complete half of your main mission objective.  Go through
    the door next to the lever and you'll spot some more round staorage
    crates, shoot the wall out to the right of them for a secret area with
    Body Armor in it.  Step onto the elevator and take a ride up to the
    surface.

    side of the catwalk you're on to be in a circular room.  Head right and
    go through the first door on the right, follow the corridor around and
    you'll enter a room with the exit blocked by a force field.  Go up
    bothe of the elevators in this room and turn two valves to shut down
    the CPU and your secondary objective will get updated, now we must turn
    off the Black Hole Generator Computers.  The exit is still blocked by a
    force field so go back through the door that led you in here, head
    right and go through the second door on the right that was locked
    before with the red and green lights in it leading into the launch
    station.  Follow the corridor and enter a room with a bunch of Guards,
    kill them and destroy the computers to your left and right to complete
    you main mission objective.  Look in the hole in the wall you blew out
    to snag another Power Shield, make your way back to the exit which is
    no longer blocked by a force field and head on through to the next
    level.

    field.  To your left and right are two buttons that need to be pressed,
    do so and the force field will be deactivated so go stand on the moving
    pillar to take a ride up and meet the Makron, don't waste ammo on it
    'cause you can't damage it yet.  It's standing on a platform and to
    your left and right are buttons in the floor, go stand on them and then
    the Makron will get lowered into a room below.  Go press the buttons on
    the right and left of the platform the Makron was on to raise stairs
    leading onto the platform, step on and take a ride down.  You're about

         Go up the stairs ahead of you and follow the corridor (take notice
    of the escape pods on the right wall) to an elevator, hop on and take a
    ride up to enter the arena.  The battle arena is just a big square with
    large pillars to take cover behind, you'll also spot some buttons in
    the floor, stand on these button to lower the floor next to them to be
    below the arena and there's ammo, health, and armor down here.  The
    Makron will be to your left, start shooting it with your heaviest
    artillery and watch out for all the rounds it lobs your way, it's armed
    with everything you have in your arsenal, including the BFG, and if
    you're playing the game on hard this Makron will be one brutal and
    tough opponent to drop and I wish you luck.  After you shoot the Makron
    so many times it'll fall out of the giant robot its in, wow this thing
    got way smaller.  Just continue blasting away at the Makron until it
    keels over and explodes in half.  Now head back to the escape pods you
    passed by on the way in here and step on through to end the game.
    Congrats on your victory Marine, I hope you have enjoyed my guide and I
    was of some assistance to you.

    all about or how cheap you're selling it, I don't want it!
    
       - NO CHAIN LETTERS: I will not send them on and if I go bankrupt,

    blah, because I don't send the letter on, oh well.  I'm not a

       - NO FAN CLUB CRAP! I don't care what your geeky little club is all
    about, I will not join.
    
       - NO MONEY MAKING SCHEMES! That means you EXCEL (not Microsoft
    affiliated for all you who don't know about this scam artist company
    Excel) and all of you other bullshit scam artists out there.
    
       - NO JUNK MAIL! If you write a crappy newsletter, send me political
    jargon asking me for money instead of my vote, ask me to join some
    pathetic singles website with nothing but supposively extremely hot
    single chics in my neighborhood who want to hook up and get all
    freaky, news about how Paris maxed out her dramatically life changing
    23 day county jail sentence, celebrity bullshit about who's fucking
    who (and who cares anyways?), or just feel like sending out trash to
    me DO NOT FEEL FREE TO DO SO! If you do then I'll send you a virus.
    How does that appeal to your server?
    
       - If I don't know or trust you I will not open up any attachements
    so don't bother to send me any. Even though I state this it's amazing

    you won't be hearing from me.
    
       - If the answer is in the walkthrough you will most likely not get
    a response from me, maybe a smart ass comment depending on the mood
    I'm in at the time. I have better things to do than to answer
    questions that have clearly been answered. Go back to the third grade
    and take up some Reading Comprehension classes, I think it's time to
    renew your subscription to Highlights magazine. Hooked on Phonics
    worked for me, maybe it'll work for you too.
    
       - And as long as we're talking about e-mail I'll most likely
    ignore, please write ledgible e-mail's without all these modern day
    acronyms all you tennie boppers, and adults who still think they are,
    IM and text eachother with, I'm old school and aren't hip to all their
    meanings and don't ever plan on being.
    
       - And another thing: I KNOW THERE ARE TYPOS in this guide.  I typed
    it in word pad and if you knew anything at all, then you should know
    word pad doesn't have spell check, plus I'm only human and thus not
    perfect.  When you type in a million plus characters you're bound to
    make a bunch of typos.  It's amazing all these anal retentive asshole
    yuppies out there who e-mail me and make a big deal because I didn't
    use proper grammer or spelled a word wrong. Get a life you pathetic
    morons and get back to eating your Tofu! Maybe someday I'll notice the
    typos and fix them, then again maybe I won't just to piss you off!
    
       - NO PORN! Some low life porn companies must have gotten my e-mail
    address from my posted guides because I literally receive HUNDREDS of
    porn offers a week and I'm getting really sick of it.  If you mother
    fuckers keep on sending me this shit then I will hack into your server
    and drop the worst virus known to computers into it so don't fuck with
    me.  Your anti-virus software doesn't have jack shit on me for this
    virus will whipe out your entire operation and I know damn well you
    deviants don't want that to happen.  If you happen to get up and
    running after my mega virus I'll just drop in another modified one.
    This process will be repeated until you're reduced to sucking dick in
    an alley on the side of a bar just to make ends meet.  I'm almost to
    the point of filing a lawsuit against you scumbags for harassment so
    stop sending me this shit.  I don't mean to sound so ignorant here but
    if it was happening to you I'm sure you'd be just as aggrevated over
    this matter as I am.  This is the only language these kind of pukes
    understand.  And no, I'm not one of those anti-porn yuppies.  Everyone
    has their breaking point and these assholes lobbed a brick right
    through my plate glass window.

         WEBMASTERS: If you want to post my guides I'll most likely let you
    but you HAVE TO ASK ME AND GET MY PERMISSION FIRST!  Don't just take it
    upon yourself to post my guides without my consent 'cause I'll sue you
    if you do and it will be my name as the webmaster for your site.  I
    always check out the website you ask to post my guides on and if it's a
    crappy amateur site then don't bother asking me to post my guides on
    your cheeseball site 'cause you can't.  If you send me an e-mail asking
    to post my guides and I don't respond, that means no and you should
    know that NO MEANS NO!
    
         If you have viewed this walkthrough on any other websites than the
    ones listed near the top of this document, or have seen this
    plagerised, please e-mail me and let me know which site you viewed this

    plagerised or on a website this isn't supposed to be on, there is a
    $CASH$ reward for informing me of who the violator is.  It's a lot of
    hard work, time, and sore wrists to write a game guide and there's
    nothing worse for us FAQ writers than having some dickless douchebag
    claiming credit for our hard work and dedication to all the frustrated
    gamers out there who read our guides with great appreciation.  If you
    plagerise this document or post this without my permission, or any
    other guides I wrote, then I will prosecute your dickless self to the
    fullest extent of the law.
