Area 51 Hints, Tips, Tricks, Secrets, & Glitches

Secret Rooms

I seems only proper that a secret base contains secret rooms. Here's how to find them:
Level 1: Shoot both blue lights. 

Level 2: Shoot out all of the upper windows of the far back wall in the Hangar. 
Another can be found by shooting all the yellow barrels when you are the forklift. 

Level 4: Shoot every yellow box while you're riding on the STAAR jeep 

Level 5: Shoot the doorplate of the second door marked General Weatherby as the door is opening. 

Level 7: Shoot all the yellow barrels at the first area where the four purple zombies are throwing barrels on the hill.

Secret Level Skip

When you go to the main menu. Click on arcade then a screen with 2 boxes will come up that says shoot to select: beginning or warp ahead. click on the black area around the box were it is blank. It will then bring you to an area that is far into the game.

Baby Aliens

When you enter the building from the helicopter, shoot the exit sign when you see a purple alien and then shoot the first three lights. This gives you the opportunity to shoot baby aliens before they form.

Chow Palace

While inside the barracks, shoot out all of the windows on the back wall. It will send you to a place called chow palace that will give you quite a few power ups.

Puzzle Room

When the game starts, shoot the first 10 windows on the left. This takes you to a room where you must shoot a puzzle. Shoot all the pieces and start. A S.T.A.A.R. Team girl appears.


For the best ending, shoot off all the panels on the Mothership. For the worst ending, let the Mothership escape without hitting any panels.

Rebel Kronn Hunter mode

Shoot the first three S.T.A.A.R. team members at the beginning of the game. If done correctly, you will enter Rebel Kronn Hunter mode.
