Version History
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

1.0 (May 4th, 2003) First submitted


---------------------------------------------------------------------------
So, you want to beat Hard once and for all...
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yeah.  Seeing as you just cleared the Robot Factory (absolute hell), you 
should
have a pretty good idea as to what Hard mode is really about in this game, 
and
the Space Station is no exception to the horror this game is capable of
inflicting on you.  It will at first seem rather overwhelming.  You only 
have
5 minutes to beat the level on Hard, so you'll need to really haul some ass.
How you ask?  Look no further!  Now since you've beaten this level twice
before, you basically know what to do.  It's just that since you only get 5
minutes, and large swarms of all three kinds of TimeSplitters, you'll need 
to
do those things very carefully and precise, and most of all, FAST! Ready?
Break!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Walkthrough (Bet you wish this 5 minutes was as long as Planet Nameks!)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Starting off
-----------------------------
First, get the crystal, then drop down to the second balcony, collecting the
armor and ammo.  Then, before you touch the self-destruct mechanisms, kill 
the
three Reaper Splitters who start in the main room with you (they appear one 
at
a time).  This is so they don't bother you when the timer is running.  Don't
bother shooting the bugs.

To the airlock
-----------------------------
Then, activate the three panels, ending with the one closest to the bottom
floor.  Head for the hangar door, and when you open the door at the end of 
the
hall, make sure you are on either side of it, not the center.  This way only
one Scourge Splitter will attack you.  Kill him, then his *** lover on the
other side.  Activate the elevator and go down.  Go right, and kneel down 
right
before the door so you can plant a plasma grenade on the turret.  Go through
the door, and pop the Scourge Splitter.  Run by the drones and get the space
suit at the end of the room.  Then turn around and make them look not cute.
Run back to the elevator and go past it, into the next door.  Shoot a plasma
grenade at the turret on the wall, and head for the next door, with your gun
trained on the center of it.  A Scourge will come though and begin firing at
you.  You know what happens to guys like that.  Then, plant another nade on 
the
turret in this room, and take out the drones that appear (try not to stop 
much.
Every second counts here).  Head into the next room, and two Scourges will
appear.  One on your right, and one in front of you.  Send them to Splitter
hell.  Head through the next door, going all the way towards the airlock.

Destroy the TimeSplitter ships
------------------------------
If you have around 3:20-10 seconds remaining here, you're good.  If not, try
again.  This next part is critical.  When you open the airlock door, don't 
wait
for it to close on its own when you get inside.  Close it yourself.  This 
saves
about five seconds, maybe more.  Anyway, go outside and man the turret.  You
know what happens to enemy ships.  They get blowed up!  To save time, don't 
let
any ships slip by, so they don't appear as extra waves you don't need.  As 
soon
as you are done, immediately head back to the airlock, doing the manual 
close
as before.  If you have at least two minutes left here, good for you.  A 
Reaper
will enter the airlock with you in it, so shoot him in his manpleaser before 
he
nails you.  Besides, at that range it can't be very good for whatever health
you have left by now.  As soon as the airlock opens, train your gun towards 
the
Scourge on the right, shooting him as you run.  Then kill Scourge #2 on your
left, and then Scourge #3 who will come at you near the hallway on the left.
After he's dead, turn around and start unloading your plasma grenades on the
drones following you.

To the elevator
-------------------------------
Head back towards the hall on your right now, and train your gun towards the
door's top.  As soon as it opens, shoot a nade at the turret, and get to
whatever side it isn't facing (considering it didn't see you when you came 
in).
Wait for it to blow, and grab the Minigun and the armor.  Fire it up with
alternate fire, and shoot the Scourge who will be coming at you from the 
left.
Shoot him Jesse Ventura ala Predator stylie, and then head towards the end 
of
the hall.  A Reaper will appear, so kill him and the turret he's standing
beside.  Head through the door on your right.

The home stretch
--------------------------------
This part is the most critical of the level.  As soon as you can, activate 
the
elevator.  It does not come up on its own, and takes about 30 seconds to do 
so.
Take out the two turrets in this room, and just avoid the Reapers until the
elevator arrives.  Hop on, and pray you either don't get his as it begins to
descend, or that you don't run out of time.  Now, just wait out the ride,
keeping your retinas on the timer.  The doors to get off the elevator are on
the left and right sides of it, so kneel down and go through either one as 
soon
as the elevator is low enough.  Now comes the fun part.  You get to be O.J.
Simpson!  Meaning, run your ass off to your ship Heisman Trophy stylie, and
avoid enemy fire.  If you manage to get to your ship, pat yourself on the 
back
and flip off your TV screen.  Do a dance, shout obscenities, whatever.  You
just beat Hard, unlocked the Site multiplayer level, the Infinite Ammo 
cheat,
and some nice bragging rights. And, if you feel like it, a spot on some 
message
board "TS2 Elite" club.
