Marathon 2 - Solo Levels

13 6000 Feet Under



If you *think* you've explored everything and still can't find a way out, note that there are several ledges that you can get to by jumping over lava (without taking damage). Doing one or more of these jumps should help you locate switches and terminals to help you finish the level.

You are on the right track if you have hit a switch which suddenly rises to reveal another switch. This second switch controls the level of the lava in a room, and you will now be able to cross to the other side without problems.

The last part of the level starts with a squarish room filled with tank guys and Fl'ickta. The best strategy is to use the lava in the room to kill everything...race along the outside platforms to where there are switches in the wall, two of them out of reach. Hit the switch you can reach, and let the platform rise. Hit the left switch (now in reach) and watch as the lava rises to toast your opponents. Hit the same switch to make it fall again, and hit the right switch to make the platform drop down. After this portion, you'll come to a door near a 2x recharger and a switch that controls the door. Hit the switch twice in a row to stop the door in mid opening. Run through and get the tank guys to appear, then run all the way back to the platform and activate the lava for about 1/2 minute. Repeat until the tank guys are toast.

Alternatively, if you prop this door open to let a tank guy come through, you can stand near the 2x regenerator, recharging as much as possible while moving in the direction of the tank guy. The grenades from the tank guys will damage him as well, so while you're regenerating, the tank guy is dying.


There are no known secrets on this level.
