     FOR SATURN & PLAYSTATION


     VERSION 1.0 (and likely to be the last unless I find out how to get into
	the secret in the Gauntlet)


     By Michael Staiger (merkss@yahoo.co.uk)


     Complete: Friday October 19 2001, 4:36 AM Greenwich Mean Time


     Welcome to the first version of the Alien Trilogy FAQ. Having found
nothing but cheats to any version of Alien Trilogy on the GameFAQs website,
I decided to construct this, the complete guide to Acclaim's first person
shooter.

     While I freely acknowledge that I believe Probe have pretty much
squandered the greatest movie licence ever, they have still produced a
competent and atmospheric 3D shoot 'em up.

     In this 'ere FAQ you will find the following:

 1. The Alien Trilogy storyline.

 2. Detailed analysis of your arsenal and ordinance.

 3. Complete inventory details. What items you pick up and how to use them.

 4. Bestiary. The enemies you face, their tactics and how to defeat them.

 5. Maps to every level in the game. All secret rooms, traps and monsters.

 6. All the cheat codes for infinite ammo, weapons, level skip and
    invincibility.

NB: All level numbers refer to their number by the level skip code. Level
numbers begin from zero.



 Part 1

     The Alien Trilogy Storyline


                           "WE'RE ON A ONE WAY ELEVATOR TO HELL, GOIN' DOWN!"
                                       - Marine Private Hudson, Aliens


     Alien Trilogy is a first person shoot 'em up developed by Probe Software
and Acclaim Entertainment Ltd. It is based (very loosely) on the first three
Alien films and was released on Saturn and Playstation in 1996. (I don't know
when the PC version was released)

     You play Lt. Ripley, a marine assigned to investigate the sudden loss of
contact with the colony on planet LV426, also known as Archeron. The massive
Earth conglomerate Weyland-Yutani, the ubiqiutous Company that owns the
colony, had discovered an ancient, derelict starship lying, where it crashed,
on Archeron's inhospitable surface. The colonists were deliberately infected
by Company scientists in order to smuggle an Alien through ICC quarantine to
the Company's bio-weapons research labs on Earth.
     But something has gone horribly wrong.

     After the communications blackout, the Company sends in a team of marines
to destroy all evidence of the smuggling operation. As you watch from the
APC the first squad sent into the colony complex is wiped out by the Aliens.
Soon you are the only one left. You enter the colony complex, determined to
avenge your friends and obliterate the Alien hive.



     OK, so the storyline's basically a lazy attempt to set up the 'one man
takes on army' storyline of most pre Half-Life first person shooters, and
aside from the names has almost nothing in common with any of the films but
what the hell it still plays good.




 Part 2

     Arsenal And Ordinance


    "THIS IS A MAXIMUM SECURITY PRISON AND YOU HAVE NO WEAPONS OF ANY KIND?"
                                         - Lieutenant Ellen Ripley, Alien 3


     Unsurprisingly, you begin with a pistol and that's it, you could use
harsh language, but that's unlikely to do much good. If you scour the recesses
of the colony complex, you will soon come up with some monstrous, death
dealing firepower.
     One thing that's worth mentioning here is the rather odd system of ammo
from pickups. Instead of giving you a specific amount for each clip picked up
your ammo counter will increase beyond the next multiple of that weapons clip
capacity to the NEXT multiple.
     Basically if you have a 9MM pistol (15 rounds per clip) with 28 rounds of
ammunition, and you pick up a pistol clip, your ammo counter will increase
beyond 30 (the next multiple of 15) to the multiple of 15 beyond that, in this
case, 45.
     If you had 30 rounds in the gun instead of 28 your ammo counter would
have gone up to 60 (45 is the next multiple up, 60 the next) The same applies
to the pulse rifle and smartgun (in multiples of 100) Some ammo pickups
take you up 4 multiples instead of 2, usually with the pistol.
     The shotgun and flamethrower are different. For the shotgun you simply
get 10 shells per pickup. The flamethrower 100 units of fuel per pickup.

     Another thing that must be mentioned here is about weapon efficiency.
A little idiosyncracy this game displays is that when you fire multple
rounds at an enemy rapidly, only the first will hit. The enemies are 2D
sprites and so have no thickness. When they go into their 'taking a hit'
animation sequence they are insubstantial. That's why if you shoot an alien
with the smartgun you'll see sparks flying from the walls behind it where
the rounds that went straight through strike. Enemies are actually only
taking damage when they enter their 'taking a hit' animation.
     So that means some weapons are more efficient than others right?
You bet. The shotgun is the most efficient weapon simply because it's fire
rate is slow. You can still waste ammo by firing as fast as possible but
you only have to slow down slightly to ensure every shot inflicts damage.
     The pistol just about fires fast enough to manage waste ammo. Even
though you're never short on ammo for this weapon, if you wish to conserve
ammo and do as much damage as possible just slow down the fire rate enough
to ensure the enemy 'takes the hit' every time.
     The flamethrower can be massively inefficient, and you can burn off
a load of fuel without doing much damage. If you attack a warrior say, and
you hold down the trigger until it dies, the alien is only actually taking
damage at the moment of the 'taking a hit' animation. If you wish to
conserve ammo just tap the fire button to do the hit, then wait for a
second before tapping again. You'll save a large amount of fuel.
     The pulse rifle can also be very inefficient. It fires in three
round bursts but some enemies have hit animations so long that only one
in six rounds will do any damage. To maximise damage don't hold down
the button. Press it repeatedly to inflict damage. Fortunately, like
the pistol, you're rarely short of ammo for the pulse rifle.
     The smartgun fires much faster than the pulse rifle but with it's
autotargetting system it saves a lot of ammo, provided you're taking on
multiple targets. For single enemies stick to the pulse rifle.
     If you wish to maintain high efficency use explosives. All the
damage is done in one strike so you cannot waste ammo, only power. Given
that only a queen can survive a direct hit from a charge or grenade,
you can use them to clear out any room of anything.



     9MM SEMI AUTOMATIC PISTOL
                                                     "DO SOMETHING, GORMAN!"
                                   - Company Executive Carter Burke, Aliens
FIRES 9MM ROUNDS
     15 ROUNDS PER CLIP
     10 CLIPS MAXIMUM
     150 MAX ROUNDS HELD

          It's all you have when you start, but since you get a new
weapon on the first level it doesn't stay top of the heap for very long.
The pistol has a poor rate of fire and does not do much damage. However,
ammo for this weapon is plentiful in the early levels so you have it to fall
back on if you run low on ammo for other weapons. Ideal for picking off
lone facehuggers or for blowing up the many crates and storage lockers that
contain items.


     12 GAUGE SAWN OFF SHOTGUN
                           "I LIKE TO KEEP THIS HANDY, FOR CLOSE ENCOUNTERS"
                                           - Marine Corporal Hicks, Aliens

FIRES 12 GAUGE SHOTGUN SHELLS
     10 SHELLS PER CASE
     10 CASES MAXIMUM
     100 MAX SHELLS HELD

           Like being hit in the stomach with a hydraulic battering ram
this mean machine can deal out serious pain to almost anything you'll come
across. Provided you're not being overrun by xenomorphs this is a good
weapon to choose. It has a wide blast area so, while it does little damage
at range, it can hit two or three targets that are spaced apart. One word of
warning. The laws of physics apply in this game. Every action has an equal
and opposite reaction. What am I talking about? Yep, recoil.
     While the pulse rifle and smartgun have inbuilt recoil dampers to soften
the kickback and increase accuracy, the shotgun is not a piece of military
hardware and doesn't. Beware of using this on high platforms with no safety
rails. If you have no choice, move forward with each shot to minimize overall
movement. Be sure to check your position if you can. On the up side ammo is
rarely in short supply so this weapon will be your first choice for most
of the first episode once you pick it up on level 0.


     SEISMIC SURVEY CHARGES
                                                 "HOW LONG TILL IT BLOWS?"
                                            - Marine Corporal Hicks, Aliens

HAND THROWN CONCUSSION CHARGES
     2 CHARGES PER PACK
     INFINITE PACKS MAXIMUM
     INFINITE MAX CHARGES HELD

          These bundles 'o' fun are found throughout the game and it's
always a good idea to have a few to fall back on. Used primarily for
destroying weak walls, hidden passages and secretion encrusted doorways
they are also useful for mass carnage in crowd situations. Provided
you are not in the crowd itself simply chuck in one of these and watch
'em fry. Also good BS (before smartgun) for knocking aliens off the
ceiling. Lure them near to a wall and slam a charge into it.
The alien will eat floor.


     FLAMETHROWER
                                    "FLAME UNITS ONLY, I WANT RIFLES SLUNG"
                                        - Marine Lieutenant Gorman. Aliens

FIRES HIGHLY FLAMMABLE FUEL IGNITED BY FRONT BURNER
     100 UNITS OF FUEL PER CANISTER
     5 CANISTERS MAXIMUM
     500 MAX FUEL HELD

          The flamethrower is the odd weapon in the group. 500 units of
fuel sounds a lot but it can all be burnt off in one really big fight. You
can use it in a similar way to the chaingun in Doom, trapping an enemy in
your field of fire until it dies. The one situation where this weapon
excels is if you're being swarmed by facehuggers. Simply hold down the
fire button and spin round a couple of times and you take out the lot.
You won't use it initially after you've found it (it first appears in a
secret room on level 1) since fuel is scarce, but later in the game, if
you want a change from the pulse rifle, give this a whirl and barbecue
some alien slime.


     M-41A PULSE RIFLE
                             "LIEUTENANT, WHAT DO THOSE PULSE RIFLES FIRE?"
                                         - Lieutenant Ellen Ripley, Aliens

PRIMARY
FIRES 10MM EXPLOSIVE TIPPED CASELESS STANDARD LIGHT ARMOUR PIERCING ROUNDS
     100 ROUNDS PER CLIP
     10 CLIPS MAXIMUM
     1000 MAX ROUNDS HELD

SECONDARY
FIRES M40 GRENADES
     5 GRENADES PER CASE
     4 CASES MAXIMUM
     20 MAX GRENADES HELD

          Now we're reaching the high end of the food chain, this highly
versatile weapon not only offers a high rate of fire combined with good
damage but also sports, for the ultimate in crowd control, a 40mm grenade
launcher. Fire that baby a few times into a crowded nest and you only have
to worry about getting acid on your boots (Like the survey charges though,
don't be anywhere near the blast radius). The 10mm rounds also deal out
death at a huge rate of knots but, best of all, once you've reached the
first queen you should have clips and grenades coming out of your ears.
There is almost nothing the pulse rifle can't handle, and once you find it
on level 4 you'll have a much easier ride from then on. This gun lacks
only in close quarters combat with multiple targets. For dealing out
damage like there's no tomorrow you need one of these...


     SMARTGUN
                                                      "LET'S ROCK!!!"
                                          - Marine Private Vasquez, Aliens

FIRES 10MM EXPLOSIVE TIPPED CASELESS STANDARD LIGHT ARMOUR PIERCING ROUNDS
     100 ROUNDS PER CARTRIDGE
     10 CARTRIDGES MAXIMUM
     1000 MAX ROUNDS HELD

          Yep, this gun uses the same sort of ammunition as the pulse
rifle (except in cartridges instead of clips), has the same capacity,
and deals out the same amount of damage per round. So why is this
weapon the last word in close quarters combat? Simple, its rate of
fire is nearly TWICE that of the pulse rifle, hurling out a hundred
rounds in only 8 seconds. Also the smartgun lives up to its name with
its auto-targetting system which auto-aims at up to three enemies in
your forward firing arc. This makes taking out the aliens on the ceilings
a cinch and means an economical rate of fire at all other times too. If
you're short of explosives this gun can also blast through any destuctible
walls. The smartgun is first found on level 15 and within a few levels
you'll find plenty of ammo. But it isn't until the final episode that you'll
really need this awesome piece of hardware when hordes of the toughest
alien warriors decide to go up close and personal.




 Part 3

     Inventory


                   "OUTSTANDING, NOW ALL WE NEED IS A DECK OF CARDS"
                                           - Marine Corporal Hicks, Aliens

     This is where you find out about the other stuff. Not as
immediately important as weapons but be it tactical data in the form
of an automapper or extra protection with an acid vest everything in your
inventory is going to make your life a whole lot easier.


     MOTION TRACKER
                 "I WANT YOU TWO WITH TRACKERS CHECKING THE CORRIDORS, MOVE!"
                                            - Marine Corporal Hicks, Aliens

     Not strictly an inventory item since you don't pick it up, you have
it all the time, but damn useful all the same. Just remember that it is 2D
so signals right next to you could be on a level below you. Especially
useful for tracking facehuggers that are very close to you below your
line of sight.

     AUTOMAPPER
"..BLUEPRINTS, I DON'T CARE, ANYTHING THAT SHOWS THE LAYOUT OF THIS PLACE.."
                                       - Lieutenant Ellen Ripley, Aliens

     A handy piece of kit, that not only shows you most of the level you're
on (not some secret rooms) but also allows you to zoom in to a close-up
view. This view shows details like doors (green) and destructible crates,
walls and lockers, switches and glass screens (red)

     BATTERY

     Batteries are essential for powering the big control panel switches.
You will usually find exactly the number you need on each level although
occasionally they are used to find secret areas.

     ACID BOOTS

     These make you totally invulnerable to acid on the floor, but only
for 30 seconds. They are quite rare, except on level 24 which contains
channels of acid for you to run through. The guide to that level will
tell you how best to use them.

     ACID VEST

     Armour is extremely effective in Alien Trilogy. Unlike any other 3D
shoot 'em up I've played armour does not reduce the amount of damage you
take. While you have any armour AT ALL, you take NO damage (excluding
fall damage) This means essentially that armour can be counted as health
above and beyond your actual health. The acid vest puts your armour to
100.

     BODY SUIT

     The same as the acid vest except this natty fashion statement raises
your armour way up to 200 making you practically invulnerable.

     ADRENALINE BURST PACK

     The health equivalent of your body suit, this massive adrenaline burst
surges your health way up to 200. Once you've drifted down from the rafters
you can walk up to a Queen and give her the finger.

     HYPO-PACK

     This raises your health to 100, which is good, but also makes you
TOTALLY invulnerable for 30 seconds, which is a whole lot better. Time to
play close range grenade juggling with a few warriors.

     IDENTITY TAG

     No use to you except your mission percentage, these can be found
in personal quarters, on security guards and in cryo tubes.

     MEDIKIT

     Bog standard medikit, but handy if you're in trouble. This will
raise your health by 20 to a maximum of 100.

     DERMPATCHES

     There's hundreds of these all over the place, and that's the
important thing. These increase your health by one but there's no limit
to how high you can go. By using armour to prevent your health going down,
you can reach some truly absurd health levels by the end of the game. My
record is over 400. Useful for when the game gets really dangerous in the
third episode.




 Part 4

     Bestiary


               "...HOW COULD THEY CUT THE POWER MAN, THEY'RE ANIMALS..."
                                        - Marine Private Hudson, Aliens

      Here's where you find out exactly what you're up against. The
company goons intent on harvesting the aliens for weapons research, and
the acid-jawed harbingers of death lurking round every corner, in every
airshaft and right behind you.


     We'll ignore the fact that the two sides should be ripping each
other to shreds (or rather the aliens should be killing, the company
dying) and split the bestiary into those parts.

 THE COMPANY

                  "YOU KNOW BURKE, I DON'T KNOW WHICH SPECIES IS WORSE"
                                        - Lieutenant Ellen Ripley, Aliens

     SECURITY GUARD
     ARMAMENT: PISTOL
     WILL DROP: 9MM CLIP or IDENTITY TAG
     First encountered on level 3 these guards are basically cannon fodder.
If you're in a hurry or surrounded you can deck them easily with a
well placed shotgun blast. But their pistol shots do so little damage
that, if you wish to conserve ammo, 5 or 6 rounds from the pistol will bring
them down. One thing, their hit animation goes on for ages. Slow down your
fire rate if you want to conserve ammo.


     COMPANY SYNTHETIC
     ARMAMENT: SMARTGUN
     WILL DROP: SMARTGUN CARTRIDGE or SURVEY CHARGES
     These guys mean business, armed as they are with the smartgun. But
they aren't quite as lethal as you are with this weapon. The reasons for
this are:
     1. They walk real slow. Hell, tectonic plates could outrun these guys.
     2. They have a slower fire rate. Much slower.
     3. As the screen flashes red when you take a hit, you are totally
impervious to damage. So while you take the initial hit, everything
else passes through you for an instant. This limits the effectiveness
of the smartgun which does damage by quantity not power.
     Synthetics can take quite a beating taking 12 shotgun shells to
take out. Personally, when these guys first turn up on level 8, I use
either the pulse rifle (30 rounds) or just hit 'em with a seismic
charge and watch 'em redecorate the floor.


     COMPANY SOLDIER
     ARMAMENT: PULSE RIFLE
     WILL DROP: PULSE RIFLE CLIP or IDENTITY TAG
     While slightly faster than the synthetics, these hired mercenaries
are far less resilient. You can bring them down in only 3 shotgun
blasts or 2 bursts of pulse rifle fire. Using pulse rifles themselves
should make them dangerous but they're not. Once you run into these
guys at the start of the second episode, you'll be regularly using
them for target practice and for keeping your stock of pulse rifle clips
up.


     ALIEN HANDLER
     ARMAMENT: PULSE RIFLE with GRENADE LAUNCHER
     WILL DROP: PULSE RIFLE CLIP or GRENADE PACK
     These guys are the most dangerous Company goons. First encountered
in the prison at the start of the second episode they, like the
soldiers, are armed with pulse rifles. But they carry grenades. If you
engage them at medium to long range, listen carefully for the sound of
the grenade launcher. Strafe immediately if you hear a grenade coming
your way. They do a lot of damage.
     At close range they will only use the pulse rifle which isn't too
dangerous. They can soak up 5 shotgun shells or fifteen pulse rifle
rounds. As they occasionally drop grenades blowing them up is often
the most economical way to deal with them.



 THE ALIENS

"I WANT THESE SPECIMENS DESTROYED AS SOON AS YOU'RE FINISHED WITH THEM"
                                       - Lieutenant Ellen Ripley, Aliens

     These are the really dangerous guys. The aliens abilities are
far ranging and totally adaptable. Shoot them at extreme close range
and you'll have pretty acid burns all over your nice, new body suit.
You'll also have to watch out for alien corpses as their blood can
still burn you. They are fast, cunning and vicious. Here is the complete
rundown.


     FACEHUGGERS
     ATTACKS: JUMP and FACEHUG

     Not quite as lethal as their film counterparts, the facehugger
can nevertheless be dangerous if encountered as it usually is.
I.E. in numbers. Facehuggers are the fastest enemy in the game and
they only have to get close to facehug you. While this move only
does 5 damage, which isn't so dangerous, they almost totally block
your forward view, which is. Especially dangerous if you're surrounded
by aliens.
     In small numbers you can pick these creatures off with the pistol.
In early levels they only take 1 round to kill (by the end of the game
they can take up to 5) so they give the pistol something to do. In
large numbers any weapon will take 'em out. Be sure to aim down at
close range to get the targets. Get used to fighting these guys,
they're found on almost every level.
     Oh yeah, just a footnote. You'll start seeing the eggs these
guys come from as you enter the nest in Sub-Level A, in the upper floors
of the atmosphere processor. Waste 'em from a distance, pistol will do if
you're not in a hurry, pulse rifle otherwise (shotgun doesn't cut it
at that range) Don't get close or you'll end up like Kane, and that
sucks, literally.


     ALIEN WARRIOR
     ATTACKS: CLAWS and STINGERS?

     These are the black skinned aliens. They move fast and can do
quite a bit of damage if they get close. There are two strains however.
The warriors in the first episode take about 4 or 5 shotgun shells to
put down and rarely attack in packs of more than 4. Once you're out
of the colony and into the prison you won't see them again until the
last few levels of the game, in the deepest recesses of the boneship.
But these are a new breed.
     Immensely resilient, they can take 30 rounds of pulse rifle fire,
or nearly 12 shotgun shells to kill. Plus if you see 1, chances are
there are a lot more nearby. I've seen packs of over 12 of these gits
together. If you have plenty of health you can pump grenades into 'em
from close range. Failing that, pull out the smartgun and hold the
trigger down.
     One thing I've just noticed while compiling this FAQ. I believe
some warriors can deploy the stingers in their tails. This part of
the alien arsenal is not mentioned in the films. In the books of the
films they are noted a few times. In Aliens that is how Gorman gets
knocked out. He is paralyzed by an alien stinger during the APC's
escape from the atmosphere processor.
     What I have seen occasionally in the game is a warrior standing
across a room from me doing a kind of spaced-out clubbers dance, and
I began taking damage. The animation is rather bad, plus if you move
in to get a closer look, the warrior will break and attack with claws.
Could be spitting. Could be firing stingers. Either way it isn't
particularly dangerous and you won't encounter it that often, I just
thought I'd mention it.


     JUVENILE DOG ALIEN
     ATTACKS: BITE

     The first of the so-called "dog" strain found exclusively in the
second episode, the prison, and alongside the warrior strain in the
third, the boneship. They're gold so they're easy to see. They move
slowly so they're easy to avoid. And they only take a couple of pulse
rifle bursts so they're easy to kill. Cannon fodder basically.
Use whatever you like.


     ADULT DOG ALIEN
     ATTACKS: CLAWS

     Similar to the adult warriors just easier to see. These replace
the warriors as your primary enemies in the second episode. Quite fast
and powerful they become lethal in packs despite the fact that they
take less firepower to bring down than the warriors. They are first
seen on level 17. For 1 or 2 you can use the shotgun, 3 to 5 the pulse
rifle. Above that only the smartgun or explosives will do.


     LEAD MOLD DOG ALIEN
     ATTACKS: CLAWS

     A strain not mentioned in the instruction manual, I call this
strain the lead mold alien because it appears on only one level,
level 20. This level appears to a re-creation of the lead mold from
ALIEN 3, hence the name. Apart from a few facehuggers this is the
only type of alien you will encounter here. They look to all intents
and purposes like the normal adult dog alien. Same speed,
attacks and damage. However, there is one important difference. You
face no alien that can endure more firepower except the queen. This
ultra tough xenomorph can absorb 25 shotgun shells before falling,
or an entire clip of pulse rifle ammo. If you have plenty of grenades
or survey charges they are often the quickest way to kill this enemy.
Like all other aliens bar the queen, they cannot survive a direct hit
from an explosive.
     Basically, if you encounter one in close quarters it's smartgun
if you value your armour. With room to retreat a little you can get
away with shotgun or pulse rifle, provided you have plenty of ammo.
If you run into two, smartgun only. Don't stop firing until they're
down.


     CHESTBURSTER
     ATTACKS: BITE

     The youngest version of the alien you will encounter, these small
critters first appear on level 5. They move fast keeping pace with
facehuggers, jump like them but can take slightly more firepower than those.
A shotgun shell or a few pistol rounds. Watch out when opening cryo tubes as
these guys can often be found chilling out inside.


     QUEEN
                                      "GET AWAY FROM HER YOU BITCH!"
                                      - Lieutenant Ellen Ripley, Aliens
     ATTACKS: BITE or TAIL WHIP

     The ends of each episode should have been a battle royale but
sadly the queen's AI contains a stupid piece of game design. It's true
of all the aliens that you can trap them in one place briefly by
shooting them. Their "taking a hit" animation means they can't move
for that time. You can in some cases freeze them in one place by
timing your shots so that this animation repeats over and over.
     Fortunately the warriors are not very wide and damn fast
meaning they can sidestep out of your firing line and get close to
you. Plus you usually have more than one of those to worry about
in your average firefight so you don't have time to trap them.
     Sadly the Queen is not only slower than the warriors but she
is so wide that, once shot once she cannot move fast enough to evade
the next burst of a rapid fire weapon. All this means is all you have
to do is get about 15 feet from her, so her head is just off the top
of the screen, aim up slightly and start firing the pulse rifle or
smartgun. She will sometimes attempt a tail whip but while you are
firing she will be knocked out of the move because it takes so long.
Keep the trigger down and she will eventually fall, some 250 rounds of
pulse rifle later.




 Part 5

     The Maps


                                                       "IT'S GAME TIME"
                                              - Marine Corporal Hicks, Aliens

     Now for the fun part, the really big part. Fortunately, as Alien Trilogy
was developed primarily for the Saturn and Playstation it doesn't contain the
sprawling, processor-intensive sort of levels found in PC shoot 'em ups of
the time like Doom 2 and Quake. This means they can be effectively reproduced
as ASCII diagrams.
     They're still big enough to prevent me going into detail on the maps
themselves so this is how this part of the guide works:
     KEY:
          Waypoints. These are the numbers on the maps, detailed in the
          guide.

          Switches. Small switches are denoted by a lower case 's'. Big
          switches, which require a battery, are denoted by an upper case
          'S'.

          Lifts. These are shown as capital 'L's. See the guide for details
          on which switch activates which lift.

          Stairs or sloped corridors. Arrows (>>> on horizontal corridors, /\
          on vertical corridors) always point UP to the top of the staircase.

          Destructible crates, lockers, barrels, consoles and windows
          are shown as 'x'.

          Railings on high platforms are shown as '+'.
          The edges of high platforms are otherwise full stops '...',
          and colons ':'.

          Destructible walls are shown as '????'.

          Doors are indicated by a double line of '###'.

          Walk through walls are shown as asterisks, '****'. This applies
          to transparent and opaque walk through walls. Also the yellow
          energy fields found in the boneship.

          Small Pillars are shown as 'O'.

     The guide itself will detail how to make your way through the level
obtaining all secrets and as many aliens as I could find. This was all
done on difficulty level 2, Raging Terror. Acid Reign (Level 1) is way
too easy and Xenomania (Level 3) while possible, messes up the guide
because of the regenerating aliens. So, here WE GO!!

=============================================================================

     You've just seen the first squad get wiped out. Time for some payback.
Shame you've only got a pistol. Oh well, we'll soon fix that...
     1) From point 1 proceed along the corridor taking out facehuggers and
blowing up the crates (x) to get ammo. After the second staircase you'll find
the barricades thrown together by the colonists in a failed attempt to hold
back the aliens (3). Ignore them and move to point 2.
     2) Activate the switch at point 2 and go through the door into room 4.
In here you will find a facehugger to take out, the automapper to grab (not
really necessary if you're reading this) and a switch that activates the
door to room 5. Hit it.
     3) In room 5 there is a crate. It conceals a facehugger. Time to point
out another one of this games little idiosyncracies. Many lockers and
crates contain facehuggers and chestbursters but, when you blow one up,
the emerging alien is INVINCIBLE for over a second after the explosion.
You can shoot them. They'll even bleed but they won't take damage. It's best
to back off quickly and wait just a second before firing. If the enemy gets
close, use the tracker to make sure it dies when you shoot. Once it's dead,
go past it and grab the shotgun. Partytime!
     4) Use the shotgun to destroy the barricades at points designated 3.
Watch out for facehuggers emerging from crates behind the barrels. Explore
the central circle of corridors to pick up ammo and items. You'll fight a
warrior and a few facehuggers.
     5) Go to the east entrance to room 6. Take out the warriors behind
the door and clear the room of facehuggers. The crates scattered around
contain ammo, health and facehuggers. At point 6 itself you will find the
battery you need to exit the level.
     6) Exit through the west door and go straight ahead. Proceed to point
7 killing aliens en route and activate the switch. The exit room (8) will
open.

=============================================================================

     More firepower available on this level. More aliens to kill as well.
     1) You emerge from the elevator into a crossroads. The exit elevator is
right in front of you but you've got a lot to do before you can use it. You
will see a warrior approaching from the left. Blow him away and head up the
stairway to the right, opposite to the one the warrior entered from. Walk
past both barricades to point 2 and hit the switch.
     2) The door behind you is now active. Open it and proceed down the
staircase. Beware at the bottom. In front of the door to room 3 are two air
vents concealing facehuggers. Once they're dead you can open the door.
     3) Take out the two warriors you find and activate the switches in the
alcoves. Then blow up the crates and barrels and look around. Here you will
find your first seismic survey charges. They'll be useful later. Also
you'll pick up a battery and a shedload of pistol and shotgun ammunition.
     4) Time to put those survey charges to use. Go to point 4 again
ignoring the barricades taking out warriors as you go. Blow a hole in the
false wall (the ??? on the map) with a survey charge and go along the
passage to point 5. You will acquire the flamethrower. Toasty! Stick to the
shotgun for now. There's no extra ammo for the flamer for a couple of levels.
Right next to the flamer is a hypo-pack. Grab it and open the door. Blast
the warrior you meet as quickly as possible and go straight to corridor 6.
     5) This corridor is full of steam vents damaged in the fight between
aliens and colonists. While you are invulnerable move quickly down the
corridor, killing huggers and opening crates. You will find a stack of
ammo and the automapper. Try to get clear before the hypo-pack runs out.
If you don't make it just wait for the gaps in the steam jets. It takes
longer but is quite easy.
     6) Go to the corridor around room 7. Destroy the barricades on both
sides to get yet more ammo and enter room 7. There are two facehuggers in
the room and two in the crates at the north end. These crates also contain
a shotgun and ammo. Don't miss the dermpatches on the shelves.
     7) Go to the corridor around room 8 and destroy the barricades on both
sides. Enter, kill the warrior, grab what you need and hit the switch.
     8) Enter room 9 across the corridor, kill the two warriors and the
hugger and activate the big switch. There's also a bit of health around if
you need it.
     9) Return to the start of the level, kill the warrior that emerges
from the elevator and leave.

This is the first of many re-arm levels. There are no aliens in these levels
but you only have a limited time to pick up equipment before you are pulled
out. On this level you have sixty seconds.
     1) You start in the elevator at point 1. There is no guide to getting
through this level. I'll just tell you where everything is so you can pick
up what you need. (In fact there's so much ammo for the pistol and shotgun
in levels one and two, the only things you are likely to need are flamer
fuel and health)
     2) Grab the survey charges in front of you. Now where do you want to go?
Heading right through the wall and down the stairs you'll find some more
survey charges, a flamethrower at point 2 and a hypo-pack at point 3. The
pack will make you invulnerable. This is useful for getting through the
walls in corridor 8 quickly. You won't take blast damage.
     3) If you turn left from the start you'll pick up some pistol and
shotgun ammo on your way to point 5. At point 5 you can go straight ahead.
This will save some survey charges as there are no destructible walls in
this corridor. However, there are only a few things to grab. An automapper
(no use whatsoever on this level) some dermpatches and a pistol clip.
     4) If you blast through the wall on your right from point 5 into
corridor 7 you'll find only a medikit. Don't bother.
     5) Corridor 8 is the place to go for cool stuff here. You'll use up a
lot of survey charges getting through but you'll not only get some back
you'll also pick up three canisters of flamer fuel and an adrenaline
burst.
     6) Once you enter room 9 you probably have a few seconds left. Search
the room. There's quite a bit of health and ammo lying around. Then either
let the time expire or enter the elevator at point 10.

=============================================================================
     The rec. area is the first really big level, and it comes with quite a
change. Unlike the first few levels there's bugger all ammo to be had here,
unless you know where to look.
     1) As soon as you exit the lift at point 1 you'll see multiple targets
on the tracker. Don't worry. They're security guards, lowest of the company
grunts. Take 'em out (with pistol if you can as they dish out pistol ammo and
you need the shotgun for the warriors) and grab anything they drop. Turn
right at junction 2 and proceed to the (knee deep) swimming pool. Go to
the switch at point 3. There's a medikit here if you need it. Activating the
switch will raise a platform in the pool to reveal something you want, an
acid vest. Unfortunately, the switch will also release four facehuggers into
the pool.
     2) Go quickly down the stairs to point 4 and shoot the huggers as they
climb out of the pool. Once they're dead jump in and grab the vest. Your
health is now safe (until the vest dissolves)
     3) Return to point 2 and go straight across into room 5. Climb the
stairs and kill the guards on the balcony. At point 6 you'll find the first
shootable wall which conceals a secret. The lift you can see on the map will
lower once enough ordinance has been poured into it. Careful, there's a
couple of warriors in here. Deck them and grab the stash, a flamer and a
shotgun.
     4) You now have to reach room 9 through corridor 8. Watch out when
destroying the first lot of barrels. There's a warrior at point 7. Move down
corridor 8 destroying barrels and crates. Watch out for facehuggers. You'll
find five in various crates down here (see the guide to level 1 detailing
how to kill aliens emerging from crates)
     5) Kill the two warriors in room 9 and hit the switch. This will shut
off the steam vents around point 10 so you can get the battery on the floor
here without getting cooked. Go get it.
     6) Go down the corridor to room 11, kill the guard and use the ASCIImap
above or the automapper in room 11 to find the lockers that contain items.
Blow them all up to find two facehuggers, 4 survey charges and 20 shotgun
shells. Hit the switch.
     7) Go through the door into corridor 12, kill the security guards and
ready the shotgun. Open door 13. Unlucky for some.
     8) This room is crawling with aliens. Two facehuggers and four warriors.
Circle the room taking them out then grab the dermpatches on the tables. Go
down the passage to the switch room.
     9) Activate the big switch. This will open the exit door. Next hit the
two switches opposite the big one (I don't actually know what these do. I
suspect they release more security guards into the first part of the level
or just add more to your mission complete percentage)
     10) Lastly hit switch 14. Immediately strafe right and move forward
onto the lift. This way you don't take fall damage. There's a stack of stuff
in this storage bay, blow up all the crates and get it. The hit the switch
and move into corridor 15.
     11) Here you will encounter another odd piece of game design. This
being your habit of looking up when walking up slopes. This often makes it
difficult to target small enemies ahead of you. To counter this hold the
look key down when moving up slopes. You view won't move unless you look up
or down yourself. Use this method to take out the many facehuggers in this
corridor (the flamer is good for this) Open the door at the top.
     12) The main room has new occupants. Blow 'em away and proceed to point
16. Just ahead you will see some ammo behind some steam jets. It is possible
to get in there without being hurt. But unless I'm really low on health I
just walk straight in and out.
     13) The exit, point 17, is now in front of you but don't enter it just
yet. In order to get 100% mission complete you must sweep the first part
of the level again looking for more security guards with ID tags. You should
find three. One in corridor 12, one at point 2 and one between points 6 and
7. Once you've got 'em all, you can exit.

     Bored with the flamethrower yet? Don't worry, this level hides a new
toy to play with.
     1) Exit the elevator, point 1, and move to point 2. A warrior will
attack. Kill him and go up the corridor he cam from. Go right around the
perimeter blowing up lockers (x on ASCIImap) and killing huggers and their
new allies, chestbursters, until you reach point 3.
     2) Once the warrior outside is down, enter and open all the cryotubes.
Keep the shotgun ready, you'll find a chestburster in two of them, along
with a medikit and ID tag in another. Leave and turn left.
     3) Proceed to point 4 killing facehuggers (there are a lot in this
section) and take out the security guards in front of the exit elevator. It's
sealed for now so instead go to point 5 and open the door here.
     4) Once inside sweep the whole room. You'll find a warrior at each end
plus some shells and the battery you need at point 6. Leave this room.
     5) Turn left and move toward the crossroads at point 7. To your right
you will see the entrance to the main science lab. We'll go there last. Go
on to point 8 and open the door.
     6) Kill the chestburster and move through the rooms to point 9. There's
another chestburster here. Kill it and start destroying lockers for ammo,
an ID tag and yet another chestburster. There's plenty of health here. Grab
it if you need it. Then go to point 7 and head into the main lab.
     7) Take out security guards, then blast through the windows and kill
all the facehuggers and warriors you can see. Grab the automapper on the
table at point 10 and use it or the ASCIImap the find and destroy all the
lockers and consoles. The consoles are on all four sides of the two pillars
in the upper secure chamber. Blow them all up and kill the huggers emerging.
     8) Once you've picked up, smashed or shot everything in the room you
can turn your attention to the switches. The switch at point 11 just
activates the door to the chamber, no use at all if all the windows are
smashed. By the main doorway hit the big switch to open the exit elevator.
The switch next to it controls the door to the upper secure chamber. Ignore it.
On the other side of the doorway the switch closest to the door will open the
lift at point 12. The other one controls the door to the lower secure
chamber. Press it if you wish.
     9) Go straight to point 12, kill the facehuggers and behold the prize.
This is the big secret in this level (and you can't get to it until you've
entered every room and hit the switch) Here there is a canister of
flamethrower fuel (cool), an ID tag (useful), a shotgun (handy), an acid vest
(most excellent) and a pulse rifle! (WRECK RULE!) This weapon is all you'll
need for the rest of this episode (once you have plenty of ammo for it, of
course) Grab everything and head for the exit elevator at point 13.

     Time to re-arm again. you know the drill. Here's where everything is.
sixty seconds and counting.
     1) The layout's the same but equipment is now in crates. Use shotgun to
get it out. The crate at the start contains a pistol clip. The corridor
leading to point 1 contains the automapper and a pulse rifle clip.
     2) There's some shottie shells at point 2, an acid vest at point 3 and
a medikit at point 4. Up at point 5 you'll discover a hypo-pack.
     3) The crate at point 6 holds a grenade pack and two survey charges.
The three crates in corridor 7 hold a 9MM pistol and two clips for it.
In corridor 8 there are two medikits and three cases of shotgun shells.
     4) Corridor 9 conceals a pulse rifle, a flamethrower and four medikits.
Area 10, the exit chamber has some shotgun and pistol ammo lying around in
crates plus some more survey charges. Exit when you're done.

=============================================================================
     The garage is a huge, sprawling level with loads of secrets to uncover
and, similarly, loads of aliens to gun down.
     1) Exit the elevator at point 1 and walk round the corner to point 2.
Shoot the lift here to open it. Kill the warrior behind it and grab what you
need. There's a medikit, survey charges and an acid vest here.
     2) Move to point 3. Take out the two warriors that attack and go into
room 4. Watch out for the alien eggs here. Shoot 'em from a distance. Hit
the switch here and the lift at point 5 will lower. On top you'll find two
facehuggers and a pulse rifle. Grab it and climb over the crates to point 6.
There's three crates to blow up here. You'll find ammo of every type inside.
     3) Once back over the crates, move to point 7 and destroy the crates
here. You'll get two batteries, some shells and a facehugger on your face.
Careful.
     4) Move round to the switch at point 8 and hit it. This'll bring down
the elevator at point 9. Go there (on your way you'll pass three crates.
They all hold facehuggers. Kill 'em if you like) and get on the elevator.
     5) More warriors to kill then you've gotta run across the lifts to the
big switch at point 10. They will drop as you pass over them. If you don't
make it go back up and use the switches at point 11 to reset the lifts.
Hit the big switch (this'll open the exit) and ride down one of the elevators.
     6) Return to point 3. Now use the automapper you picked up at point 10
to locate and destroy all the lockers that contain items (it's easier than
using the ASCIImap because it's more detailed) There's six around point 3
and one over by point 2. Particularly get the locker toward the entrance to
room 4. It holds a battery you need to get all the secrets. Don't mistake
the big wire coils for lockers. They aren't on the ACSIImap but are shown on
the automapper as red squares as well. You'll find a ton of ammo, a dermpatch
and a facehugger.
     7) Next climb the stairs at point 2 and kill the warrior at the top.
Drop back to the floor when you run out of walkway. Destroy crates to reach
the switch at point 12. Hit it and move to point 13 where the lift will have
dropped. On top of this one is a medikit and another acid vest.
     8) Clear out both alcoves at area 14 of crates and facehuggers and
crates then hit the switch at point 15. This will activate the big lift you
can see on the map. Clear both rooms down here of aliens and crates. Use the
switches to activate the lift if you get trapped. Remember, switch 15 is a
one shot deal. Don't get brought back up with the lift when moving from one
room to the next. There's no way back down. Down here you'll find ammo,
explosives and health.
     9) Once you're out head for point 16. Walk up to the lift here and it'll
lower so you can get the shells on top (the same goes for the other lift of
this type near point 17) Blow up the crates and climb over to point 17.
Waste the facehuggers and leave over the other side.
     10) Blast your way from point 18 to 19 taking out huggers and crates
and grabbing items. Then leave and climb down to the switch at point 20.
You'll pick up another battery here. Hit the switch and quickly move back up
the stairs to the lift at point 21. It will have lowered revealing more
huggers plus some ammo.
     11) Move between the lockers to reach the switch at point 22. For some
reason this switch controls the loading platform of the nearby transporter
at point 23. Hit the switch, pick up the stuff opposite it (including yet
another battery) and ride up the platform.
     12) Hit the switch at point 24. This will prime the lift at point 25.
It won't actually lower until you cross it. Do so, ride down with it, kill
the huggers, grab the stuff (ANOTHER battery here) and use the switch to get
out. Ride back up with the lift and continue along the walkway.
     13) As you arrive at the bottom of the stairs you'll be jumped by a
warrior hiding in the alcove at point 26. Once he's dead hit the switch.
This will prime lift 27. Like last time it won't activate until you cross
it. Return along the walkway to point 27 and ride down with the lift. In this
room you'll find two packs of grenades, a small switch (that lets you out)
and a big switch (that lowers lift 28) Hit the small one, then the big one
and run quickly to lift 28 before it raises again. Here you'll find loads
more ammo and another acid vest.
     14) Phew, just one more secret to go. Ride back up on the transporter
platform using switch 22 to get it down. Proceed to point 29, the entrance
to the motor pool. The '@' symbols you see on the map denote the transport
vehicles and other heavy machinery in the motor pool. Move through to point
30 with the flamer or shotgun at the ready. They're the best for taking
out facehuggers at close range and the motor pool is crawling with 'em.
Look alongside the APC at point 30. You'll find some survey charges.
     15) Activate the switch here and ride down the nearby lift. The final
secret holds many crates and, unsurprisingly, a massive amount of ammo,
health and facehuggers. When you're finished proceed to the exit elevator
at point 31.

     Despite the obscene amount of ammunition available for every weapon in
the garage, level 8 is the third timed re-arm level. Why this is here I don't
know. Oh well, ours not to reason why, ours but to make aliens die, as I'm
sure some famous person said at some point, roughly, maybe. Only sixty
seconds here.
     1) OK, here we go again. At point 1 there's a pulse rifle clip, and it's
counterpart, a grenade pack, lies at both points 2. At point 3 you'll find an
acid vest (if you need it. There were four in the garage) and some shells.
     2) OK, now the other way. At point 4 you'll pick up the automapper,
some survey charges and several dermpatches if you search among the crates.
Up corridor 5 there's a couple of dermpatches and that's it. Iiiiiiiiiin 6
you'll find a pulse rifle and shotgun shells.
     3) Iiiiiiin 7, there's three medikits, an acid vest, a shotgun and a
pack of grenades. Search area 8 for load of dermpatches and medikits. Grab
what you need and clear out.

=============================================================================
     We're out of the colony complex and into the atmosphere processing
station and the start of the alien nest. Here you also run into the company
synthetics for the first time, living quietly alongside their alien charges
and just as determined to end your mission prematurely. The warriors are
getting tougher also. It's now 5 or 6 shotgun shells to kill one.
     1) As you exit the elevator at point 1 you'll immediately have to defend
yourself from some facehuggers and a warrior. Try not to blast the pipes on
the left hand side of the walkway. They're steam vents and are a pain to get
past if they're shot open. Go straight ahead, destroy the crates on your
right and climb up the stairs to point 2. Watch out for the open steam vent.
     2) More huggers here plus the automapper and a battery. Grab them and
go back, round the railings to point 3. Blow up the crates to get
dermpatches. Go straight over the lift to area 4. There's a company
synthetic at both points 4 (use grenades, you should have loads by now) and a
battery operated switch at the upper one. Throw the switch and blow up the
destructible wall to access room 5. Kill the facehuggers and grab the ammo.
One note: try to keep to short, controlled bursts of fire in this area. Many
of the pipes are steam or coolant vents, taking heat to or from the heat
exchangers below, and can damage you if blown open.
     3) Return to point 3 and shoot the wall where the lift is to access
the first secret. It will drop into the floor. There's a switch here. Hit it
and the lifts on both sides will drop releasing two warriors. Kill them and
search the area. At point 6 you'll find some flamer fuel, a hypo-pack and
the switch that re-activates the lift. Hit the switch, grab the stuff and
sprint back to the entrance elevator at point 1.
     4) Run down the stairs into room 7. While you're invulnerable from the
hypo-pack you can kill enemies quickly at close range with explosives.
Blow open rooms 8 and 9 and use the invulnerable time to clear both of them
while grabbing equipment. At point 9 you'll find a window looking out onto
the main cooling shaft running through sub-level A. To your left you'll see
a synthetic on a platform. Use the grenade launcher to blow him away.
     5) Go back to room 7 then move up the corridor to point 10. Here you'll
see the first big incubation chamber loaded with eggs being kept at the right
temperature by the heat from the station. Snipe the eggs from long range and
proceed toward the stairway clearing as you go.
     6) As you move down the steps to point 11, watch the motion tracker. As
soon as you get a signal, back up and let the aliens come to you. There's a
lot of warriors in this section. Repeat this manouevre until you reach the
raised catwalk at point 12.
     7) The white surfaces on both sides of the catwalk are extremely hot
(Not just where you see the flamejets) so in order to reach the equipment on
them you're going to have to sacrifice a little armour. Move along the
catwalk and look off to the left. At point 13 there is an acid vest. Jump
off, grab the vest plus anything else you fancy here as you run back to the
stairs. Repeat this procedure on the other side. You will have taken no
health damage from that. Your armour has absorbed everything (provided you
moved fast enough, of course)
     8) Move on down the catwalk to point 14 where it splits. Turn left and
proceed slowly. Falling means instant death here so be careful. Kill
the synthetic at the end of the platform and pick up the pulse rifle. Now
go all the way around to point 15 avoiding steam vents and flame jets and
destroying crates and barrels. You'll get a battery and ammo from the crates.
     9) You should get a trace on your tracker at his point. Kill the
warrior and drop off the ledge on the right inside the archway. Grab the
stuff and use the switch to get back up. Move to point 16.
     10) Destroy both of the walls here. Behind one you'll find some
facehuggers and some ammo. Behind the other you'll find a warrior and
another destructible wall. Blow this open to find the last of your mission
objectives, four alien eggs. There's an adrenaline burst pack here (oh YES)
and some survey charges. Grab what you want and hit the switch at the end of
the hallway to exit. The dropoff opposite the exit is fatal. No secrets
there. Trust me, I know.

=============================================================================
     In this level you pass along the maintenance catwalks directly above
the heat exchangers themselves. The air is extremely hot which probably
explains the lack of alien eggs or their resident keepers. You can only
take 30 seconds in here so...
     1) There are dermpatches on the way in from the elevator at point 1.
Careful of steam vents and flame jets when you enter the main chamber.
At point 2 there's a shotgun plus shells. At point 3 there's three canisters
of flamethrower fuel.
     2) At point 4 there's some health plus a body suit! This is a priority
pickup. At point 5 there's a pulse rifle plus grenades. You'll find an
acid vest plus more dermpatches on the way out to the elevator at point 6.

=============================================================================
     Now arriving at sub-level C, in the bowels of the atmosphere processing
station. This place is crawling with aliens and contains another big egg
incubation chamber. Your mission however, is to track down the missing
colonists and recover their identity tags. That's one thing to watch out for
on this level. You can get very big signals from the motion tracker here,
very reminscient of 'Aliens' itself but don't panic. Many traces you'll see
are struggling colonists. Put them out of their misery and get their ID tags.
That's what you're here for. Be sure to kill colonists as soon as you find
them otherwise you'll find a chestburster attached to your armour.
     1) Move out of the elevator, kill the warrior and the colonist you'll
see across the hall. Grab his ID tag and blow up the secretion encrusted
doorway at point 2. The door behind it is inactive for now. Go to point 3.
     2) Here you'll pick up a battery. You'll also see the first ceiling
crawler alien. Once you've got the hang of aiming up and down blowing them
off the roof with the pulse rifle is easy. Destroy the wall at the end of the
corridor and open the door.
     3) Hope you came in firing. There's three warriors here. Once they're
dead grab the automapper and ammo, look behind the left switch for a rogue
ID tag then hit the switches. They will activate the doors at points 2 and 6.
     4) Enter room 5. Look just inside the door to your right. The tracker
should help you find the colonist here (he occasionally disappears. A bit of
a glitch) Clear the room of stuff and leave heading for point 6. Blow up the
wall and open the door.
     5) Watch out for warriors in this hallway. Go straight across from where
you entered, blow up the wall and open the door. Kill the facehuggers and
the colonist and pickup the huge amount of ammo in here.
     6) Back across the hallway blow open the entrance to room 8 and open the
door. More huggers in here plus health and armour. Clear and leave. There's
yet another destructible wall just around the corner from room 8. Blow it up
and move down the hallway using your tracker to find colonists. Careful,
there're warriors in this section, on floor and ceiling. At point 9 you can
see out into the main egg chamber but don't jump down to it just yet. Move
around to point 10 (be sure to get the colonist on the way) and blow up
the wall here.
     7) This secret corridor is loaded with ammo plus a facehugger right at
the end. Drop down into the egg chamber once you have everything. Sweep the
room from end to end blowing up everything that moves. Use the tracker to
find colonists. Pick up anything you need. The exit door (point 12) is
pretty well disguised. Despite its appearance there is no wall in front of
it. The door itself is encrusted in slime. Fortunately it still works. Open
it.
     8) Sweep the whole outer ring of corridors killing aliens before going
through the middle corridor to point 13. The door will open as you approach.
Kill the warriors coming out, grab the battery and anything else you want and
go to the switch at point 14. Hit it, waste the warrior in the elevator and
exit.

     OK, PARTY TIME!!!! You probably know by now how easy the queen is to
kill, but the setting is still impressive, particularly the green lighting
effect.
     1) Exit the elevator and watch the tracker for incoming facehuggers.
Once the initial attack is over sweep the perimeter of the chamber clearing
eggs and facehuggers. Use the shotgun preferably. That way no shots can
pass through enemies and hit the queen (point 2) before you're ready.
     2) Clear area 3 of eggs. This raised platform beneath the egg sac (the
'@'s on the map) has many eggs and quite a bit of ammo. Once there's nothing
left alive except you and the queen, blow her off the egg sac and bring her
down.
     3)Once you're done retool with any equipment left and exit. Now to the
prison.

=============================================================================
     Entering the second episode and strains of 'Alien 3' showing through
with the EEV in its hangar. This level introduces two new enemies, the
company soldier and juvenile dog alien. Neither is that dangerous so you can
concentrate on the job in hand, clearing the hangar of aliens.
     1) Exit the elevator at point 1 and move down the stairs to point 2,
taking out soldiers as you go. Turn left and blow up the thin wall at point 3.
Walk along the corridor to point 4, grabbing dermpatches and some shells,
then blow up the wall here to get the pulse rifle behind it. Watch out for
juvenile dog aliens on your way out.
     2) Move down to point 5 and deck the soldier here. Blow up the wall at
the end of the corridor, kill the facehuggers and grab the stash. Enter the
door to room 6. This is the infirmary. Clear the entire room of juvenile
dog aliens and grab the equipment. There's health and the automappper here.
Watch out when passing back from the upper chamber to the lower in here.
You'll find some more juveniles have arrived.
     3) Once you've cleared the infirmary you can enter the morgue opposite.
Open the door and move down the stairs killing juveniles. This room wiil
boost your mission percentage in activated switches and recovered ID tags.
Hit the switch and then look at the cryo-tubes. In the cryo-tubes, from top
to bottom you will find: a chestburster, an ID tag, another ID tag, another
chestburster and another chestburster. The cryo-tube closest to the bottom
is empty. Leave when you're done.
     4) Go back up the main corridor toward point 3 but turn left before you
reach it and proceed toward the hangar itself. Once you reach point 8, at
the top of the stairs, look around. There are several soldiers in here plus
a whole lot of crates. Circle the hangar to point 9. Kill the three
facehuggers in the EEV and enter. Of the three cryo-tubes here, the two outer
ones hold chestbursters and the middle holds an ID tag. There's also a body
suit at the far end of the EEV. Only pick it up if you need it, if your
armour is below 50. If you do leave it here remember to grab it before you
exit the level.
     5) As you exit the EEV you'll see a pile of crates just to your right.
Destroy these to find a facehugger and a battery. Just to the right of these
crates are some more in an alcove. Blow these up to find several facehuggers,
a juvenile dog alien in the alcove, a pistol clip and body suit.
     6) Next you'll arrive at point 10. This should be your last port of
call in the hangar so leave the crates here for now. Go to point 11.
The crates here are on a lift which will activate once a particular crate is
destroyed and you walk where it was. The crates on the lift itself are all
empty so destroy them and ride the lift up. The crates up here conceal two
facehuggers in them and two juvenile dog aliens behind them. Use a close
quarters weapon like the shotgun or flamethrower to kill them before they
reach you. Whatever you do, don't fall off the platform. There's no way back
up. The other crates contain shotgun ammo. Hit the switch and drop back
down when you're done.
    7) There's another pile of crates by the bottom of the lift. Blow them
up to kill facehuggers then go to the entrance stairs. The crates here hold
a medikit if you need it. Then blow up the crates on the lift at point 10
until it rises, destroy the wall at the top, kill the juveniles in the
passage, grab the flamer and blow up the final wall to get out the other side
back into the main corridor.
     8) Take out any soldiers you find and open the door at point 12. This
is the shower room and it too holds a few secrets. Kill the juveniles then
blow up all the shower enclosures and the two lockers marked out on the
automapper and ASCIImap. You'll find a shedload of facehuggers to blast. The
door to room 13 is another of those shootable doors. You know what to do.
Inside you'll find your first pair of protective boots. They only last 30
seconds though. Use the time to sweep the level again for any new soldiers
that might have turned up then go to point 14.
     9) The wall between the wire coils is thin. Blow it, and the barrels
beyond it, up. That should take care of the facehuggers in the room. You'll
find explosives, a pistol clip and an adrenaline burst pack here. Activate
the big switch when you're done to exit the level.

     This level is loaded with company soldiers enjoying the comforts of the
maximum security wing. Kill 'em all and grab their ID tags.
     1) Exit the elevator at point 1 and move along the corridor to point 2.
Turn right down the hallway here and kill the soldiers patrolling area 3.
Then clear all four rooms down here of aliens and equipment. You'll find the
automapper in the lower right room. Use it or the ASCIImap to locate lockers
that can be blown up. In particular the upper left room holds an ID tag and
a battery in a locker. Watch out for a locker in the upper right room that
can only be blown open with explosives. Also search all desks for ID tags.
     2) As you move back toward point 2 you'll be attacked by two company
soldiers. Once they're dead proceed into the recreational area (area 4) and
use the tracker to hunt down other soldiers. Once you have cleared the
immediate area move to point 5, the entrance to the kitchen (these max
security prisoners sure had it easy) Hit the two switches on either side of
the doorway then search the hallway for lockers that can be destroyed to
find health and ID tags. There are three.
     3) Open the door to point 6, kill the soldier here, then move to the
opposite side and take out the crate barricades at points 7 and 8. You'll
find another battery in amongst that lot. Hit the switch at point 8 to access
room 9.
     4) Clear the room. There are crates galore in here most of them holding
facehuggers plus some juvenile dog aliens. Kill everything then leave and
make your way round to room 10. The two batteries you picked up are required
for the switches here. Kill the soldiers, check the desks in here for ID
tags, then activate the switches. This will open the exit elevator at point
15, prime the door at point 14 and release a load of soldiers into corridors
11 and 8. Move out and kill 'em all.
    5) Enter room 12 and destroy all the crates. You'll get jumped on by a
load of facehuggers. Clear room 12, return to room 10 and move up corridor 13
from there taking out aliens, crates and barrels as you go. Blast through the
first false wall to get ammo plus a body suit, then through the second to
reach corridor 11 through door 14. Sweep the level again to be sure you
didn't miss any soldiers, then exit in the elevator.

    A relatively short level but for the fact that you have to repeat some
sections multiple times to reach certain switches. It also contains only one
secret but it's loaded with stuff.
     1) Leave the elevator at point 1 and move up to point 2. You'll
have to defend yourself from four soldiers here. Once they're dead, turn left
and move to point 3. Proceed down the stairs to point 4 taking out the
soldiers. At point 4 itself you'll walk over a pressure pad. The doors down
the two side passages will open releasing some facehuggers. There are a
couple of medikits in this area if you need them.
     2) Continue down the main corridor taking out crates. You'll pick up a
battery from the first stack. At point 5, you'll find facehuggers in and
around the second stack. Once they're dead you can pick up the dermpatches
and automapper. Move forward to the switch at point 6. Activate the switch
to prime the main lift on this side.
     3) Return to the lift, killing newly arrived company soldiers, and ride
it up. Kill the soldier here and open the door at point 7. Kill the huggers
here and activate the switch.
     4) Go back to point 2 and cross to the other side. Cross the lift and
descend the stairs to point 8. This is another pressure pad. Kill the
soldiers emerging from the side rooms. Move to point 9. Destroy crates. Kill
facehuggers. Move forward and hit the switch at point 10. Return to point 8,
climb the stairs and ride the lift up, killing soldiers as you go.
     5) Open the door at point 11, kill the soldier and activate the switch.
The exit elevator at point 12 is now active but you don't have the big
secret yet. Go back to point 10, activate the switch to prime the lift again.
This time climb off the other side and head to point 13. Hit the switch here,
being careful not to step onto the lift. There's no way back up.
     6) So back to point 6, hit the switch and up to point 14. Hit this
switch to activate lift 15. Ride it down to reach the big secret. This holds
a body suit, hypo-pack and a grenade pack. Hit the switch to arm the outer
lifts.
     7) Use either lift to get back to the top level then ride the main lift
down to the exit elevator at point 16. Take out the facehuggers to reach the
elevator.

=============================================================================
     This level is big and hidden in its penultimate secret is the last
addition to your arsenal, the mother of all firearms, the smartgun!
LET'S ROCK!!
     1) Leave the elevator at point 1 and kill the approaching soldiers. Then
blast through the wall at point 2 to get some survey charges. Continue down
the corridor and take the first right. Move through this corridor (picking
up a battery from the crate en route) to room 3, the auxiliary control room,
taking out soldiers. Pick up ammo and the automapper, then hit the switch.
That'll get you some mission percentage.
     2) As you leave room 3 you'll get jumped by facehuggers. Take 'em out
and move on to point 4. Open the door here, take out the eggs, grab the
survey charges and blow a hole in the back wall. The room behind holds two
medikits and two juvenile dog aliens. Leave when you're done and go to point
5, out on the catwalk above the leadworks power systems.
     3) Destroy the wall here to get more equipment. An adrenaline burst
pack, more survey charges and a dermpatch. More huggers too. Then move to
point 6 and hit the switch. Watch out for the flame jet. Cross to the second
part of the level and go to corridor 7. Blow up the wall here as well as all
the crates in this corridor. Behind the wall you'll get flamer and shotgun
ammo. In the crates you'll find a load of facehuggers.
     4) Now enter room 8. Here grab the battery and activate the switch. Now
leave and head for corridor 9. Blow up the wall at point 9 itself to find
health and survey charges. Now hit the switch and blast your way into room
10. Destroy all crates then the three destructible walls you can see on the
map. In these four rooms you'll find ammo of every type plus two medikits.
Excellent.
     5) Move up to the second thin wall in corridor 9. Destroy it and the
huggers behind it. Move along to the door to room 11. Open it and start
shooting. When the many barrels in here explode they should take the soldiers
present and one of the destructible walls with them. Grab the battery in this
room and blast through to room 12. There's a load more ammo in here. Grab
what you need and move to room 14.
     6) This is your primary mission objective, the main control room. Enter
and deploy the usual tactics. Move around the perimeter taking out the many
soldiers guarding this area. When they're all dead, hit all the switches.
Two will shut down more flame jets, one will activate another lift in the
main chamber and the last one will open the exit elevator. Before you leave
destroy the wall at point 15. Behind it is another egg chamber. There's a
load of medikits here if you need them.
     7) As you return to the entrance to the main control room you'll have
to kill two juvenile dog aliens attacking from room 11. When they're dead
open the door to corridor 7 and fight your way back to the main gantry
chamber (Check corridor 9 on your way) Cross the lifts to point 16.
     8) The exit elevator is just beyond but you don't have the smartgun yet.
Hit the switch and cross the final lift to point 17. Blow open the wall, twat
the facehuggers and bag the grand prize, the smartgun. YEEEEHAH!
     9) Finally, before you leave, get the final secret by pressing the
switch at point 17 and going all the way back to point 2. You'll find some
dermpatches and a body suit in the newly opened room. You'll just have to
take out a few juvenile dog aliens on your way to and from this secret. When
you're done head for point 18, the exit elevator.

     It's re-arming time again. Let's GO! You now have sixty seconds to reach
minimum safe distance.
     1) Leaving the elevator at point 1 you'll find survey charges and
shotgun ammo in the first two crates you find. Down at point 2 there are two
barricades. Inside 'em are a stack of dermpatches, flamer and shotgun ammo
and the automapper. The lone crate just beyond the crossroads holds nothing.
     2) At point 3 you'll find pulse rifle ammo and a dermpatch. Around point
4 you'll find a body suit plus some survey charges.
     3) At point 5 you'll pick up another pulse rifle clip plus health. On
your way to point 6 you'll find a 9MM pistol plus some health. In alcove 6
itself you'll find a pulse rifle plus loads of ammo for it.
     4) Down corridor 7 you'll discover another body suit and four survey
charges. In corridor 8, from point 8 back to point 2 you'll find a
flamethrower plus fuel and a dermpatch. Grab what you want and exit at
point 9.

     Another sprawling level, watch out here for a shedload of toxic waste
barrels and two new enemies, the adult dog alien and the alien handler.
     1) Exit the elevator at point 1. You'll now be standing on a balcony
overlooking the level below. Move down the stairs and kill the alien handlers
approaching you. Move to point 2. You need a battery for the switch here so
cross the bridge killing handlers and open the door to room 3.
     2) Go in shooting. There're loads of barrels in here which makes taking
down the dog aliens present much easier. The crates in the upper right area
of room 3 contain some dermpatches, a medikit and a battery. Grab the stuff
and blow open the crates blocking the stairs to the water channel. In these
you'll find a couple of chestbursters. Once they're dead open the door to
room 4.
     3) There's a dog alien on the ceiling in here. The smartgun makes
killing it easy. In room 4 there are more barrels and crates plus the
automapper on a shelf. You'll find another battery in the crates. Now, if
you want to nail every alien exit room 4, turn right and drop into the water
channel. Move to point 5. See the pipes below the surface. There's a
chestburster behind this wall. Fire a grenade into either pipe to kill it.
     4) Return to point 2 and activate the switch to open the door. Inside
room 6 kill alien handlers and blow up crates to kill chestbursters. Then
blast through the wall to room 7. As soon as you walk round the pillar to
the medikit the lift'll drop into the floor. You must now fight two dog
aliens in close quarters. Once they're dead grab the survey charges on top.
     5) Go back toward the start but turn left and drop into the water on
the lift at point 8. Kill the chestbursters and go to the far end of the
channel to find a body suit. Use lift 8 to get back out and continue toward
point 9.
     6) On the way you'll kill alien handlers and a load of chestbursters
from the many crates on this walkway. Once you've reached point 9, enter room
10 and kill any aliens you find.  Exit and hit the switch near point 9. This
will raise the upper lift in the water so you can cross to room 11. Do so.
Hit the big switch at the far end of room 11 to open the exit elevator then
drop into the water channel and head for point 12, the crossroads.
     7) Turn right and move down here until you re-enter room 10. Kill the
attacking chestbursters and return to point 12. Turn right again and head
for room 13, the final secret. Beware of chestbursters in the water as you
approach. Blow up the crates blocking the entrance. They contain some survey
charges and a load of chestbursters. Behind the crates is an adrenaline
burst pack.
     8) Head all the way back to the stairs leading down from point 1 and go
along the walkway to point 14. Kill the handler and blow up the crates to
kill chestbursters, then exit.

=============================================================================
     The extreme heat from the leadworks power systems is perfect for
keeping alien eggs at the right temperature. But those same systems can be
lethal to you. Watch out.
     1) Exit the elevator at point 1. You'll see a synthetic on a nearby
platform. Use the grenade launcher to kill him then walk to point 2. In the
middle of the room ahead you'll see a table with an egg in front of it.
Destroy the two eggs by the table and get the other two in the alcoves.
Next turn your attention to the equipment on the table. There's a medikit, a
battery and the automapper here. As soon as you approach the table the four
dog aliens on the far side will be released. Shoot to kill.
     2) Hit the two switches. One will activate the door at point 4, the
other will shut down the steam jets at point 3. Go to point 4 now killing
anything you meet. At point 4 blow up the wall opposite the door to get a
medikit and some survey charges. Then open the door. Take out dog aliens but
be careful. The rusting pipes in here can easily be shot open leaving you
with steam jets to manouevre around. Hit the switches at the far end of the
room to shut down more steam jets. Then blow up the wall near the entrance
to find another incubation chamber. Destroy the eggs and grab the stuff.
Return to point 1.
     3) Take the central walkway heading for point 5. Take out the synthetic
on the platform and move into the corridor taking out crates. You'll find
health and a battery in them. Continue on to point 6. You are now in the
main flame vent chamber. The furnaces you can see going from floor to
celing are extremely hot. They will damage you if you touch them. But you're
not going up there yet.
     4) Blow up the wall at point 6 and move into the corridor firing. There
are a lot of dog aliens down here. At point 7 destroy the wall, kill the
alien and grab the pulse rifle and survey charges. Move on to point 8 hitting
the switch on your way. Here there are three destructible walls to blast
through. There're two facehuggers behind the first two and a dog alien behind
the third. In these rooms there's a ton of ammo to grab. Get what you need
and clear out.
     5) Area 9 is a bit of a pain. There are three invisible floor pressure
pads here that bring down the three platforms in this section. Move around
the platforms at area 9. As soon as you get a 'lift activated' message, look
at all three lifts to see which one has moved. Repeat until you have got all
three. You'll find a smartgun cartridge, a medikit and a body suit on these
platforms. Then hit the switch, cross to area 10, kill any aliens you find
and use the switch to cross back again. Return to area 6.
     6) Move up the stairs to the floor level. Move through the room killing
eggs and aliens and trying not to touch the furnaces. When you reach point 11
blast through the wall and open the door. There are two switches in here.
The small one will open room 11 which contains some survey charges, two
medikits and a load of facehuggers to kill. The big switch opens the exit
elevator at point 13.

shotgun ammo plus some survey charges.
     2) Between points 4 and 6 you'll get some more shotgun ammo plus some
health. Between points 6 and 9 you'll get a smartgun and a dermpatch. At
point 7 you'll find another body suit plus a hypo-pack.
     3) At point 8 you can get a flamethrower with three canisters of fuel.
In the long corridor between points 8 and 9 you'll find health, pulse rifle
ammo and a shotgun. In the corridor between points 2 and 9 you'll find a
pulse rifle plus two clips for it and two grenade packs.

=============================================================================
     This level looks immensely complex because of the door operation system.
But don't worry it's pretty simple. Your main worry is that this level is
crawling with the unique lead mold dog alien. These things are tough to kill.
Watch your tracker.
     1) When you exit the elevator at point 1 you arrive in the control room.
The exit is right next to you but, wouldn't you know it, you need a battery
and that's at the far end of the level. DOH! Exit room 2 and move to area
3, the lead mold itself. You'll get a signal from the tracker. The first lead
mold dog alien. Back up until it emerges from the side corridor and kill it.
This may take some time.
     2) Collect dermpatches from room 4 before entering the maze of
passageways on the far side of the mold. You'll see on the ASCIImap that all
the doors are letter coded. This will make explaining this level a lot
easier. Firstly find door Q at the bottom of the ASCIImap. It will be
open. You should come here first to get the flamer and shotgun ammo inside
as once you've hit the switches in room 8 door Q will close and getting
it open again is complicated.
     3) Go to point 5. Door H is open. Go through it and round the circle of
corridors around door M to get dermpatches. Go on toward point 6. You'll
enter the nest area of this level.
     4) Bypass door P and go to point 7. Kill the alien and grab the
equipment. There's a pulse rifle clip, a medikit and a battery. You could now
exit the level but that would be chickening out. You ain't seen nothing of
the lead mold yet. Go through door P and enter room 8, the incubation chamber.
Clear the room of colonists and eggs then turn your attention to the
switches.
     5) As soon as you entered room 8, doors P and N slammed shut meaning you
must now use the switches to get out. I'm not going to try and figure out
which switch activates which doors. I'm just going to tell you how to get all
the secrets. All you have to do is hit all five switches. Then leave by the
lower entrance and head for point 9. You'll encounter a couple of aliens
along the way.
     6) Door K will be open so you can get the shotgun plus ammo and the acid
vest inside. Now go just up the corridor to door I. It will be open and
behind it is a smartgun and some flamer fuel. Now head for point 10 via door
J. You'll run into three aliens doing this. Hope you've got plenty of ammo.
Behind door G is a case of shotgun shells and the automapper. Don't miss
the shotgun and pulse rifle ammo in alcoves in the corridor outside.
     7) Head up to door F to get some more stuff then return to door I and
take the next right after it. Return to the lead mold, area 3. Doors C and D
are shut but the upper passage is open. Doors A and B are now open. Kill the
aliens behind both doors and grab the stuff. You can get an adrenaline burst
pack, some survey charges, a body suit and two grenade packs.
     8) Head back into the maze and go to point 5. Door H is now shut so turn
right and go around the other way to door M which is now open. Kill the
aliens around here (use explosives, you just got a load) and grab the ammo
behind door M. After all that you should have accessed all the sealed rooms.
Check the map to make sure then return to room 2, activate the switch and
exit the level.

     OK, you know the drill. Let's kick ass!
     1) Move out of the elevator at point 1. This lair is massive. Search the
whole chamber for ammo. Look around the four pillars in the centre. Take out
any eggs and facehuggers you find. There are at least thirty eggs in here if
not more.
     2) When it's only you and her left, get her down from point 2 and waste
her. Good skills. Search the lair again for anything you need to restock and
leave via the elevator at point 3.

     We're into the Boneship. This is where things get really nasty. It's
real dark too. Watch that tracker.
     1) Area 1 contains empty egg husks. Destroy them to get dermpatches.
Then move down corridor 2. Watch out for dog aliens behind the walk through
wall at the end of the corridor. Once they're dead enter the room and pick up
the pistol and shotgun ammo. Again, destroy egg husks to get dermpatches.
Return to area 1.
     2) Go up corridor 3 and into area 4. There are many alien handlers in
this section. Watch out, they don't skimp on the grenades. Fight your way
through to the translucent wall at point 5. Move ahead and walk through the
wall to point 6. You'll get a body suit. Hit the switch to activate the lift
at point 12, the lift leading to the exit.
     3) Move to the lift at point 7 and ride it down. Dog aliens infest this
section. Move toward point 8. The switch beind the wall here will prime the
lift at point 7 if you wish to ride it back up. There's a pulse rifle clip
and a medikit here too. Move on toward room 9. This room is loaded with dog
aliens. Take 'em down then go to area 10 and hit the switch here THREE times.
This will bring down the lift in room 9 and prime it so you can ride it back
up. Go there and do so.
     4) This passage is very narrow and contains many dog aliens and walk
through walls. Follow this passage all the way back to area 1 collecting
equipment. Now make your way all the way back to room 9 and go to the lift
just beyond it at point 11. Around area 12 be sure not to physically cross
the lift here until you cleared all the dog aliens and grabbed the
flamethrower plus some pulse rifle and shotgun ammo. Ride down the lift when
you're ready and exit in the airlock.

     Into the core. You'll be coming back here every one or two levels. But
don't speed through it, each time you come here there'll be one room leading
to the exit and one loaded with equipment. Don't miss it.
     1) You enter from point 1, turn left and move along the corridor. You'll
find some facehuggers around. Be sure to check each doorway entrance for
dermpatches and ammo. Nothing too dangerous until you reach room 2. As you
approach the doorway you'll be swarmed by over ten facehuggers. Take 'em out
and enter room 2. There's a medikit and some protective boots here.
     2) The exit isn't far away at point 3 but you should do a lap or two
grabbing equipment from doorways and killing facehuggers. Exit when you're
done.

=============================================================================
     This level was one of my nemeses while compiling this guide. Getting to
the exit by the obvious route is relatively easy but I kept missing over 60%
of secrets and mission. However, this guide will show you how to get the lot.
     1) Exit the airlock at point 1 and move along the walkway. Watch your
tracker here. There are a few alien handlers around with itchy trigger
fingers on their grenade launchers. Once you reach point 2 blast through the
wall. Watch out for facehuggers and dog aliens emerging from behind the walk
through wall. Get the flamethrower from the alcove, then destroy the wall at
the end of the passage. Get the boots from by the switch then hit the switch
itself. This'll open door 3. There'll be more dog aliens to kill on your way
out.
     2) Go to the walkway above door 3. Once you're behind the door the acid
won't harm you. Jump down to get some health and a body suit. There are a lot
of facehuggers in this channel. Be ready. Run through the acid and climb up
the slope to get back onto the main walkway. Move down the walkway to the
junction and turn right to reach switch 4. Hit it to raise the lift to your
right. Now go the other way.
     3) Move along the walkway to point 6. Now here you can either go to
point 5, hit the switch to raise the lift at point 6, or drop into the acid
pool at point 7, grab the acid vest and ride out on the lift. It'll
automatically rise when you step on it. Watch out for a facehugger on the
lift in either case.
     4) Move along to point 8 taking out all the alien handlers on their
platforms and any facehuggers that climb the ramps out of the channels. The
archway at point 8 leads down to the exit airlock but you haven't seen even
half of this level yet. Now it's time to grab the stashes in the acid.
     5) Drop off the walkway into the acid pool at point 9. You'll get a
grenade pack. Quickly walk into the lift to bring it down then run straight
to point 10. Here you'll get some shotgun shells and another pair of
protective boots. These'll give you some time to explore the channels. There
are hoards of facehuggers in the channels themselves. Watch your tracker.
They're hard to see down here. There are some more shotgun shells at points 11
and 12. Grab 'em and exit the channels via the ramp near points 2 and 3.
     6) Return to the lift at point 6. Cross it and jump off the walkway at
point 13 to get more protective boots. Go straight to the lift leading to
point 14. Kill the facehuggers inside and grab the medikit and pulse rifle.
Exit and do the same on the lift next door. You'll get a hypo-pack here
allowing you to make it back to the walkway without acid damage.
     7) Stand just north of lift 6 and look into the channels. You'll see a
switch down there at point 15. Directly below you now is another pair of
boots in the acid. Drop off and grab them, hit the switch at point 15 and
sprint to the lift at point 16 without stopping. Once inside you're heading
into the second part of the level.
     8) Kill the dog aliens in room 16. Watch out for the acid in big pools
and little puddles in this section. The stuff is everywhere and each puddle
will take five points off your armour. There's a pulse rifle clip in one
corner of room 16. Grab it and move on.
     9) Room 17 contains some shotgun shells on the side of the central pool
and some pistol and shotgun ammo in the pool. Room 18 contains a pistol clip
and a grenade pack in the central pool. Room 19 contains more grenades and
pistol ammo in the pool plus some shotgun ammo and some protective boots
around the edge of the room.
     10) Room 20 holds two pistol clips in the pool and the entrance to room
24. Don't drop off the ledge. You can't get back again. Turn round and head
for room 21. Room 21 contains shotgun ammo by the side of the pool and more
grenades and a medikit in the pool.
     11) Kill the dog aliens in room 22 and hit the switch. Walk around on
the lift until it activates and kill the aliens at the bottom. There's an
adrenaline burst pack here and a switch to re-arm the lift so you can get
out. Ride back up and head up the corridor to point 23. Watch out for aliens
on the roof.
     12) Drop off the ledge at point 23 and fight your way into room 24. Wipe
out the horde of dog aliens and grab any equipment you need. There are two
medikits by the pool in here and a smartgun cartridge in the pool itself.
Exit this room and kill facehuggers on your way to the exit at point 25.

     Back to the core. It's tougher this time. Juvenile dog aliens are loose
in the core. Lots of them.
     1) Enter at point 1 and turn left. Move around grabbing dermpatches and
flamer fuel until you reach room 2. You won't be surprised to learn that as
soon as you approach the door you'll be swarmed by juveniles. Fight you way
clear and grab the stash of flamer fuel, medikit and boots from room 2.
     2) As before do a couple of laps grabbing equipment from doorways and
wasting aliens before exiting at point 3. Watch out. There are four juveniles
in room 3.

     This is where the levels start getting really, REALLY big. So, as you
can see, this ASCIImap is split into two parts. Start at the top, work to
the bottom. Oh yeah, one other thing. Your old friend the alien warrior is
back, but this time he's a whole lot tougher than before.
     1) Exit from the airlock at point 1 and move to point 2 collecting a
dermpatch from the egg husk on your left on your way. Kill the attacking
synthetic and move straight ahead. You can enter the area to your right
immediately but the only way out again is a massive close quarters scrap with
a horde of warriors. This way you can kill those warriors one by one saving
armour and health. Ignore the shotgun and pulse rifle clip for now and move
on to point 3.
     2) Turn left and head through the wall to point 4. There are six
warriors in and around area 4. Kill 'em all then grab the dermpatches,
smartgun ammo, shotgun and pulse rifle clip. The yellow energy fields will do
five points of damage to your armour (or ten to health) so pass through them
as few times as possible. Return to the corridor.
     3) Move onto point 5 killing synthetics, turn right and walk through the
wall into area 6. The chambers around area 6 are crawling with alien
warriors. At least ten of them. Fight your way in to get a load of shotgun
ammo, a pulse rile clip, a smartgun cartridge and an acid vest. Return to the
corridor.
     4) By now you should have a huge trace on your tracker. This is the
first drop team, captured by the aliens, cocooned and impregnated. They must
be killed. They are all in the next section, along with over 20 warriors
accessed via the lift at point 7. Go there, destroy the empty husks on the
lift, and enter.
     5) Fight your way to junction 8. Watch your tracker. Try to distinguish
non-moving traces (the drop team) from new moving ones (warriors). Proceed
through passageway 9 killing the drop team and grabbing ID tags and
dermpatches. As before be sure to kill the drop team members as soon as you
approach. That way you don't have to deal with chestbursters as well.
     6) Continue on past the membrane wall at point 10 and go through the
wall into room 11. Kill the bloke on the wall and grab the smartgun ammo.
Leave and continue round to point 12. Here turn left and blast your way into
room 13. In here is another human plus a smartgun plus ammo and the
automapper. Sweet.
     7) Go to point 12 and from there to room 14 in the centre of this
section. In here is an adrenaline burst pack, some survey charges and another
acid vest. Use the tracker to hunt down any humans and aliens that you missed
then return to the corridor.
     8) With section 8 now clear you can enter the lift at point 2. Go there,
ride the lift and fight your way up the corridor to room 15. You'll find
a load of pulse rifle and shotgun ammo plus some dermpatches. When you're
done slide down to area 12 and exit via lift 7.
     9) Ahead in the corridor you'll see more egg husks on a lift. Destroy
the husks and ride the lift up. Move into area 16. Each of the four lifts in
this room is concealed beneath a false floor. As you pass over the floor it
will drop you onto the lift which will rise back up. There's several
different types of ammo plus health on these lifts. Get all four of them.
Beware of warriors attacking from room 17. Kill them and get pulse rifle ammo
and grenades from there before returning to the corridor.
     10) GO TO LOWER MAP
     11) Turn right at point 18, kill the warrior and ride down the lift.
Kill any warriors you find. Check room 19 for warriors and equipment and hit
the switch here. That re-activates the lift so you can exit. Then make your
way to the switch at point 20. When you press it, all the lifts in this
chamber will lower. On top of each is a warrior. It would be dangerous but
for the fact that there is a hypo-pack at point 21. Once the lift is out of
the way, get past the warrior and grab the hypo-pack. Then you can finish
off the other warriors at your leisure and grab the ammo from the lifts.
Return to the corridor.
     12) Destroy the husks on the lift at point 22, kill the synthetic in
the corridor and ride the lift down. Blast your way into room 23 and kill
all the warriors. There are at least seven in this area. Grab the pistol
ammo and protective boots at point 24 and jump into the acid. There's an ID
tag to collect in one corner of room 23 and a flamethrower under the surface
near the entrance. Leave via passageway 25 and fight your way back to the
corridor. Exit in the airlock at point 26.

     Finally, a break from the slaughter for a minute. It's the first of the
boneship re-arm levels. You have 45 seconds. GO, GO, GO!
     1) The right side of the map is slightly compressed. The entrance to
area 3 is in the third alcove along on the right. Leave the airlock at point
1 and move along the corridor. You'll grab some survey charges, some
dermpatches and a canister of flamethrower fuel on your way to point 2 (third
alcove) Walk through the wall to area 3 to find a dermpatch and smartgun
ammo. Area 4 contains a smartgun plus ammo and a medikit and body suit.
     2) Go to point 5 and enter the wall here to reach point 6. Here there is
a dermpatch, survey charges plus flamer and pistol ammo. In area 7 you'll
find shotgun and flamer ammo. In area 8 there's a pulse rifle and a medikit.
     3) In area 9 you'll get a flamethrower, dermpatches, survey charges
and a pulse rifle clip. In area 10 there's more dermpatches.
     4) The membrane wall at point 11 hides a drop-off that'll do some
damage. But that's the quick way to clear out this area. In areas 12 and 13
you'll find two shotguns plus ammo for them, a pulse rifle clip, survey
charges and dermpatches. Through the wall in area 14 there's more survey
charges and pulse rifle ammo.
     5) The final area, area 15 holds survey charges, grenades and a pulse
rifle clip. The main corridor also holds lots of dermpatches, flamer fuel
and shotgun ammo. Exit at point 16 when you're done.

     You should have tons of ammunition now but you'll need it for the next
few levels. There're dog aliens in the core. Go get 'em.
     1) Exit the elevator at point 1 and kill any dog aliens you find. Turn
left and head for room 2, the munitions room. You'll pass the exit at point 3
on your way. As per usual watch out for a major attack as you approach room
2. Your prize for that killing spree is a dermpatch and a hypo-pack. There's
flamer fuel and pulse rifle ammo to be had in the corridors. Do some laps
before exiting at point 3.

     My other chief nemesis while compiling this guide, the Gauntlet is just
one long firefight from beginning to end, with over 60 alien warriors to
kill and a few company synthetics thrown into the mix. This level also
contains the one secret I have not yet cracked, area 15. If anyone knows how
to get into this chamber e-mail me at merkss@yahoo.com. Cheers. I now
return you to the guide.
     1) As before start on the top map. Exit the airlock at point 1 and grab
the stuff in the first corridor. Ride down on the lift and kill the incoming
warrior. There's a medikit here if you need it. Walk round to the next lift
at point 3. Cross it on the left side to reach the grenade pack. As soon as
you walk on the right side of it, it'll drop down to the next level. Ride
it down with the smartgun out. There's four warriors here attacking from close
range. Kill 'em all and move down the slope to point 4.
     2) Waste attacking warriors. There're at least seven in this hallway.
Turn left at the bottom of the slope to get shotgun and pulse rifle ammo plus
a medikit, then go the other way and fight your way to point 5. Move down the
slope. No warriors here, just two synthetics guarding a stash of equipment at
point 6. Kill the synthetics, and grab the stuff, a load of survey charges
plus some flamer and smartgun ammo. Move down the corridor to point 7 to get
more ammo for those weapons. Then walk through the wall to enter the lift.
Hit the switch to reach area 8. You are on the second map now.
     3) Grab the shotgun ammo and dermpatches in area 8 and look down the
corridor to area 9. This corridor is a trap. The floor will drop out from
under you just past point 9. I have, to date, found no way across to the
grenades and 9MM pistol at the end of the corridor. So walk into the
corridor. As soon as the floor gives way use the run key to stop you sliding
down the slope. Get into room 10 as quickly as possible and kill any warriors
moving around this section.
     4) In room 10 are some dermpatches, survey charges and a body suit.
Cross to room 11 to get an adrenaline burst pack and some more survey
charges. Leave and move slowly down the slope and fight your way into area
12. Kill any warriors you find, then blow up the destructible wall to reach
area 13. Kill the synthetics here to get some survey charges and two pulse
rifle clips. Leave and head for point 14.
     5) Kill the synthetic around the corner then walk onto the lift. It'll
drop away leaving you in an old incubation chamber full of old egg husks.
There are synthetics here. Kill 'em all and destroy the husks to get
dermpatches. You will note on the ASCIImap a lift near the one you just
entered by. This is the infamous last secret, area 15. I think getting in may
have something to do with the seven switches in the star chamber, area 16,
but, of course, I'm not sure. Anyway, nothing I can do about that now. Onward.
     6) Head up the corridor to the star chamber, area 16. Pass through the
energy field and kill the four warriors you find. Now look at the switches.
Start activating them one by one. As soon as you get a "Lift Activated"
message, find whichever one has opened and clean it out. I shall now list the
seven chambers and their contents.
     7) Area 17 contains four warriors, a medikit and a pulse rifle clip.
Area 18 contains five warriors, four survey charges and two pulse rifle
clips. Area 19 contains four alien warriors, two medikits and some seismic
survey charges. Area 20 contains two synthetics and the exit airlock. Area 21
contains six warriors, some dermpatches and a 9MM pistol plus ammo for it.
Area 22 contains six warriors, a case of shotgun shells, a grenade pack and
two medikits. Area 23 contains three warriors and some shotgun shells. Exit
at point 24 if you're still alive.

    45 seconds again, only difference is you're entering from the other end
this time. Let's GO!
     1) The main corridor contains two pistol clips and a load of
dermpatches. Room 1 holds a pulse rifle with a clip and a grenade pack. Area
2 holds some shotgun shells, survey charges, grenades and a dermpatch. Area
3 holds more grenades, shells and a body suit. Area 4 holds a pulse rifle
clipa and a smartgun cartridge. Area 5 holds a medikit and a flamethrower
with fuel. Remember, there's no way out of these rooms from area 5. It's
smart to enter area 5 from the main corridor and do these rooms in reverse.
     2) There are a couple of dermpatches in area 6 with several more in
areas 7 and 8. Also you'll find another body suit. In area 9 there's a
smartgun. Area 10 holds a smartgun cartridge, a pulse rifle clip and a
canister of flamethrower fuel. Area 11 holds a grenade pack.
     3) Area 12 holds more flamer fuel while in area 13 there's another body
suit, a pulse rifle, a hypo-pack and a smartgun cartridge. Exit when you're
done.

     After a hell of a fight you're back in the core, but you won't be
surprized to learn that last re-arm level was there for a reason. Be ready.
     1) Exit the airlock at point 1 and move into the core. As usual turn
left and start moving around to point 2. Very soon you'll be blowing away
warriors and facehuggers left, right and centre. Bypass room 3, the exit
airlock, and fight your way into room 2, the equipment room. You be wading
in aliens by this point. Make sure they don't overwhelm you.
     2) In room 2 you'll discover some shotgun shells. Oh well. Once you've
reached this point there shouldn't be many aliens left. Do a lap or two to
check then leave through the exit airlock at point 3.

=============================================================================
	So massive I had to split this ASCIImap into three, this level is
buried deep in the bowels of the boneship. The final Queen has been here.
The evidence is in the many alien eggs scattered across the floor of every
chamber and corridor, and they haven't been left unguarded.
	1) On the first map (about a page up from here) leave the airlock at
point 1. You'll see and egg ahead of you. Destroy it and the alien warrior
attacking from the archway to room 3. Now enter room 3. Move through the
chamber destroying alien eggs and collecting ammo and dermpatches. Watch
out for the uneven floor. It makes aiming damn difficult. As you approach
point 4 you'll be attacked by a warrior. Kill it and blow up the empty egg
husks by the doorway to get dermpatches. Leave this chamber.
	2) Move down corridor 5 (you are now on the second map down) checking
each alcove as you approach. Some contain ammo, you can guess what lurks
in the rest. At point 6 turn and proceed slowly into chamber 7. Again the
uneven floor will hamper your targetting . Take out the alien eggs any way
you can. Go to room 8. Beware a facehugger as you approach. There's a
grenade pack and a body suit to grab in here.
	3) Move back through room 7 grabbing any equipment and go through to
room 9. The door will seal behind you. The eggs are clustered close together
in here. Take 'em out and move into corridor 10. You are now on the final
section of the ASCIImap.
	4) The final huge chamber is loaded with eggs and warriors. The
floor is littered with shallow holes many holding alien eggs. Watch your
step. Kill the warrior on the causeway and circle the room on the walkways
taking out any other warriors. On your way activate the switches at points
12 & 13. These will open the exit airlock as well as releasing more warriors
into the chamber. Finally, once all the warriors are dead you can start
clearing the pits of facehuggers and eggs. Many of the small pits are deeper
than they appear and will fall away before slowly lifting you out, usually
leaving you to battle a facehugger at close quarters along the way.
	5) Once they're all dead go to point 14 and jump on the big lift here
to get into room 15. Trigger the switch down here to get an adrenaline burst
pack and a body suit from the lift. Pick any other equipment lying around
and proceed to the exit at point 16. Watch out for new aliens on the way.
Phew, we're nearly there!

	For the final, FINAL time it's back into the core to open the pilot
chamber. LET'S ROCK!!!!!!!!!
	1) Move out of the airlock at point 1. Within seconds you'll have adult
dog aliens and facehuggers all over you. Start shooting. You won't have
gone twenty metres before facehuggers and alien warriors join in the fray.
This is a fight to the death. KILL THEM ALL!!!!
	2) After a mass slaughter the numbers will begin to dwindle. Check
every doorway for ammo and equipment. There's plenty of it. Now enter the
central chamber to find the long dead pilot and loads more warriors.
KILL, KILL, KILL!!!!
	3) Once you've been into the central chamber rooms 3 & 4 will open.
Room 3 holds two canisters of flamethrower fuel, two medikits a pulse rifle
clip and a body suit. Exit at point 4 when you're done.

	It's time to clear the alien menace from Acheron once and for all!
	1) As you emerge from the airlock you'll be swarwed by facehuggers.
Kill them all and sweep the perimeter taking out more huggers and eggs. Be
careful not to shoot the queen at point 5 accidentally yet.
	2) Once all the facehuggers are dead you can investigate the corridors.
All these contain equipment (as if you didn't have enough already) Corridor 2
holds a shotgun with shells, a medikit and a smartgun plus ammo. Corridor
3 holds a flamethrower plus ammo and a pulse rifle plus ammo. Corridor 4
holds dermapatches and a body suit. As you slide out of each of these
ammo caches beware new facehuggers waiting to meet you. Finally beneath the
queen's egg sac is a hypo-pack.
	3) WASTE THE BITCH!!!!!
	4) Exit at point 6, killing huggers on the way.
