Hey there!  This guide is for one of the most anticipated FPS’s on the 
Wii, the Conduit.  This guide will be focused on the single player 
campaign, as I don’t have the means to go online with the Wii just yet.  
This also holds the honor of it being the first game I preordered and 
paid in full.  =)  This game, clichéd as it is, is worth checking out 
for on good reason.  It’s a quality First Person Shooter on the Wii 
along with Medal of Honor Heroes 2 and of course, Metroid Prime 3 (Or 
better yet, the Metroid Prime Trilogy when it gets released).

(3. Weapons)
 ----------


As far as weapons go, you can only carry two with you, as well as 6 
grenades regardless of type.  I’ve grouped the weapons into three 
parts, human, trust, and Drudge, including the prototype weapons.  
Prototype weapons aren’t playable in multiplayer, and in single player 
mode, they can’t be reloaded and are only found in certain areas.  The 
descriptions, as well as ammo capacity will be listed below (For max 
ammo, this also counts the fully loaded clip as well as reserved ammo).


*************
HUMAN WEAPONS
************* 


USP45 Pistol - It’s very precise and reloads pretty fast.  This is 
great early on, particularly if you like getting headshots easily.

Clip Ammo: 18 bullets
Max Ammo: 144 bullets

MP5AK4 Sub-Machine Gun - This sub-machine gun is great at moderate and 
close range, but the accuracy can suffer unless you fire in controlled 
bursts, and it goes through ammo quickly.

Clip Ammo: 32 bullets
Max Ammo: 224 bullets

SCAR Assault Rifle - This assault rifle fires in a 3 round burst and 
has a scope which is handy for sniping.  I’ve easily gotten headshots 
off of enemies with this thing and is my preferred human weapon.

Clip Ammo: 36 bullets
Max Ammo: 290 bullets

SPAS Shotgun - It’s effective at close range, but it’s slow and takes a 
while to reload.  You don’t need to fully reload it before firing 
again, though.  Just press the B button while reloading to stop it at 
anytime.

Clip Ammo: 8 shells
Max Ammo: 56 shells

SMAW Rocket Launcher - This has a scope like the SCAR so you can zoom 
in to blow up groups of enemies or giant creatures like the Invader, 
but you won’t come across this weapon often.  Plus, you need to reload 
after every shot, leaving you vulnerable unless you take cover.

Clip Ammo: 1
Max Ammo: 8

HVS45 - This prototype pistol has a scope you can fire through, and the 
shots are more powerful.  But the ammo for this is so limited, so you 
probably won’t use it a lot.

Clip Ammo: 8
Max Ammo: 16

Hand Grenades - They’ll explode after a couple of seconds or if it hits 
an enemy.  They can bounce off of walls, too.


************** 
DRUDGE WEAPONS
**************


Warp Pistol - This pistol fires shots that ricochet off of walls.  You 
can charge it up for more damage but the rebounding projectiles will 
harm you if you’re not careful.  A charged shot takes off six shots.

Clip Ammo: 36 shots
Max Ammo: 144 shots


Strike Rifle - This is the main Drudge weapon you’ll see throughout the 
game.  It’s semi-automatic, has a scope and can be charged to shoot a 
laser that’ll do serious damage, if not melt enemies to nothingness.  A 
charged shot takes off six shots. 

Clip Ammo: 36 shots
Max Ammo: 180 shots

Hive Cannon - It fires explosive bugs.  You can tilt the Wii Remote to 
the side to give it a wide spray.

Clip Ammo: 45
Max Ammo: 225

Shrieker - When you fire an explosive projectile with this weapon, 
it’ll follow the movements of your Wii Remote to track down the enemy.

Clip Ammo: 9 
Max Ammo: 45

Striker - This is the second protoype weapon in the game.  It’s 
basically a fully automatic Strike Rifle.  It’s pretty powerful and 
great for groups of enemies.

Clip Ammo: 177
Max Ammo: 354

Radiation Grenades - When thrown, it’ll emit radiation in that spot 
until it burns out.  It can stick to surfaces and even enemies.


************* 
TRUST WEAPONS
*************


Deatomizer MK4 - It normally fires energy bolts, but by charging it, 
it’ll fire a stream of shots that can damage an enemy.  While charging 
it, you can use the Wii remote to tilt it diagonally or even 
vertically.  It also has a scope you can use.  .

Clip Ammo: 30 shots
Max Ammo: 180 shots

TPC Launcher - It’ll launch energy cells that detonate on contact with 
anything, causing a plasma explosion.

40 power cells
10 power cells

Carbonizer MK16 - This fires a stream of energy as long as you hold 
down the trigger.  The damage depends on how long the enemies are 
within the beam.

Max Ammo: 60 power cells
Clip: 15 power cells

Deatomizer MP9 - The final Prototype weapon.  It fires charged shots 
similar to the MP4, but it’s one shot wasted instead of six.  You can’t 
tilt it like you would when holding a charged MP4, though.
 
Max Ammo: 60 power cells
Clip: 30 power cells

Flash Grenades - Once they hit something, a very bright light will 
blind any enemies in the blast radius.


 ----------
(4. Enemies)
 ----------


Puppet Humans: These soldiers are basically taken over by an alien 
virus that controls them. 
 
Trust Humans: Agents who work for the Trust agency.  Early on, they’ll 
use human weapons, but for the later encounters, they will use the 
weapons from their agency.

Drones: The most common foot solider of the Drudge aliens, they’ll 
carry Strike Rifles and come out of conduits. 

Skimmers: They fly around and are armed with a Shrieker, trying to 
blast you from below.

Med-Mites: These little aliens hop around and use the Warp Pistol.

Tear-Mites: Small Drudge aliens that usually come out of vents or egg 
sacs and attack by slashing you up close.   

Therm-Mites: Very annoying, they roll after you and try to blow you up 
when they get to you.  Shoot them before they get too close.

Para-Mites: More of a nuisance than a threat, they’ll fly around and 
sting you.  Invaders sometimes spawn them.

Scarabs: Big, bad, and dangerous, they’ll usually have a Hive Cannon on 
them, though one at the end of level 5 attacks will try to attack you 
up close.

Storm Scarabs: Even more dangerous, at least until you make them 
invisible the with ASE.  Once you expose it, you can damage it with 
your weapons.

Invaders: You’ll only encounter a few of them in the game.  They fire 
explosive shots and their close range attacks are deadly.  It has three 
weak points; two on the side of it’s mouth and the one on the 
underbelly.

(5. Walkthrough)
 --------------                   


The whole walkthrough is wrote on the Guarded difficulty setting.

******************
Stage 1: Threshold
******************


This is more of a tutorial than anything else.  Calibrate your 
targeting by looking at the fuse box on the right first, then the one 
on your left.  Once you’re able to move, shoot the lone mite coming out 
of the vent with your shotgun and reload your weapon.  Then enter the 
door and melee the lone mite with his back turned.  Shoot all the egg 
sacs in the area, then when you’re able to use the ASE, look for the 
bio locks.  The first on is on the right wall nearby the locked door, 
and the second one is near a vent to the left of the door.  For the 
record, use your ASE symbol flashing at the bottom of the screen and 
Wii remote speaker to find the locks for remaining doors like it.

Jump into the subway train and switch to your Scar rifle.  Use your 
scope to pick off the two mites in the tunnel, then before you enter 
the door, turn around and kill the two mites behind you.  After 
entering the room, you’ll see drones and conduits.  The conduits are 
best dealt with grenades, and you can switch out one of your weapons 
for their strike rifles.  After that, go out into the tunnel and walk 
towards the giant conduit at the top of the stage.  There’s no way you 
can destroy a conduit that size, so fight off the enemies that come 
out.  Once all is clear, pass into the portal as soon as you’re able to 
do so, ending the level.


******************
Stage 2: Contagion
******************


For the record, you can’t recover your health automatically in Stages 2 
and 3, you must find health recovery items to stay alive.  You’ll start 
off by battling a few Trust agents.  Then pass through the metal 
detector and head through the hallway killing more agents until you get 
to a giant room.  Once inside, kill the agents on the ground, then pick 
off the two agents on the second floor, one’s on the left, the other’s 
on the right.  Then a couple of agents will first some from door on the 
left side on ground level.  The next wave will come from the right 
side, and the last wave through the door ahead.

After another agent-filled corridor, you’ll enter another big room. You 
can see from the small cinema the gas that Prometheus is using to 
control the Trust agents.  Kill them all and continue through the metal 
detector ahead.  Continue until you reach the escalators.  Turn to the 
left and kill the two guards, then go down stairs and pick off everyone 
with the SCAR.  Head left and go down the escalator and snipe the two 
guards.  Everyone will be close when you reach the bottom, so toss a 
grenade or two their way.  Be sure to collect the first aid before 
boarding the subway train.

It’s pretty linear from here on out.  Just walk forward and blast the 
guards as you pass through the trains.  You’ll come across a first aid 
from time to time, and if things get too hectic, just crouch behind a 
low wall or the seats for cover.  Don’t forget your grenades, they can 
be helpful if you have no time to reload.  When you reach the last car, 
the man will detonate the bomb, but you’ll escape the blast and the 
wreckage. The level will end with your prize, the All Seeing Eye.


**************
Stage 3: Enemy
**************


Once you start, go through the hallways, blasting guards.  There’s a 
room to the right in the U shaped hallway as a shortcut.  Adams will 
eventually detect something strange in one of the nearby rooms.  Scan 
the symbol on the wall with the ASE and you’ll need to complete a 
puzzle By manipulating the rings.  Upon solving it you’ll access a 
secret passage nearby with the HVS45 pistol.

Go downstairs to the computer room.  Kill all the guards and then hack 
the main terminal with the ASE.  Then exit through the door, killing 
the guards until you reach the second set of hallways.  You’ll want to 
be careful here, as pulse boxes are activated.  Shoot them to destroy 
them so you don’t take any damage while walking through an area.  Keep 
your eyes peeled for any guards hiding in the rooms.  Later, you’ll 
encounter regen units.  Destroying these units won‘t allow the enemy to 
heal themselves, but you can use any active ones to your advantage to 
heal yourself as well.

You’ll soon come to another organic lock, where like they’ll be on the 
walls opposite each other nearby.  After unlocking the door, continue 
until Adams tells you to stop, take out your ASE and scan the area.  
You’re now introduced to ghost mines, which can be safely detonated 
with the ASE.  Carefully go through the sewer, detonating them as you 
go.  After another guard-filled corridor, go up the stairs in the next 
room and press the button to open the elevator doors.  Board it and 
head on up.  Go down the stairs and head into the next room.  However, 
if you need health and ammo, you can go down further for a first aid 
kit and a human refill cache. 
 
When you enter the medical area, this will be Ford’s first time 
encountering the Drudge and the conduits they come out of.  You’ll need 
to destroy 3 barrels of neuro-toxin.  Two are near the conduits, the 
other is in the far right corner.  Leave the area and return to the 
elevator room.  Go through the double doors and down stairs to green 
valve.  Turn it to lower the steam pressure and head into the 
filtration room.

You’ll need to destroy the six red valves here.  The first two are at 
the top near the entrance on pillars, the second two are at the far 
left and right ends of the room, and the final two are close by.  One 
is on a pipe in the center facing you when you first enter the room, 
and the other is on the wall near the stairs.  Exit the room quickly, 
it’s 24 seconds, but you have more than enough time to escape.

Fight your way out, killing any humans and Drudge you run into, until 
you reach another organic lock, where as usual, two locks will be on 
the opposite walls.  After opening it, Adams will double-cross you.  
You’ll then get a message from Prometheus, telling you he’s sending a 
chopper.  This next part is a little tricky.  I suggest having a SCAR 
and a Strike rifle with you for this one.

Snipe the enemies that come out with either weapon, then head up to the 
inside of the building to see at least two the conduits.  Stay as far 
back as you can and fire at the first two ahead of you.  Also, take 
note the first aids on the walls, they’ll be helpful to you here.  The 
third portal is to the right as soon as you enter the building, and the 
last one is to the left side.  After destroying them all, kill the 
enemies and exit the building.  Two soldiers will rappel down, but a 
grenade will kill them easily.  Then, several Drudge soldiers will leap 
out of the water.  Retreat into the building and snipe them as they 
come to you.  If you survive, walk to where the chopper will land to 
finish the stage.  


**************
Stage 4: Trust
**************


Now you’ll have the suit, meaning that it’ll recover your health if you 
avoid taking damage for a while.  You can still find health items to 
speed up the process, too.  Clear the entire area of enemies with your 
TPC Launcher, and use the walls as cover whenever you can.  Swap the 
SPAS shotgun for the Deatomizer MK4, I find that better than the 
shotgun, IMO.  Now, for the next organic door, search along the top 
floor for the locks.  After going through some interconnected rooms, 
you’ll find yourself in a library.  Kill the enemies and scan the locks 
on the tables to open the door.  Fight through the second library and 
into the circular room with bookshelves, then go through the door to 
enter of the second set interconnected rooms.  Your ASE will go off in 
the middle room, so scan the symbol on the wall when you see it and 
solve the puzzle.  Go into the secret room behind you and pick up the 
Deatomizer MK9.  Save as much ammo for that weapon as you can until the 
very end.

You’ll then enter some hallways with egg sacs on the walls.  Use your 
MK4 and blast them as well as any aliens that come out of them.  
There’s a trust weapon cache to refill your ammo if your MK4 is running 
low.  Kill the agents at the end and you’ll yet another series on 
interconnecting rooms.  Inside both library rooms, destroy the egg 
sacs, and aliens inside, but the door to exit the second library is 
sealed.  Two locks are near the door on the walls opposite each other, 
but the two are on the sides of staircases.

Yay, more interconnecting rooms.  But these have ghost mines in them, 
so whip out your ASE and detonate them all.  There’s a couple more of 
them to the next locked door as well.  Kill the aliens with your gun, 
detonate the mines, destroy the egg sacs, and when all is clear, search 
for those locks to open the door and enter the reading room. Clear it 
of enemies, including the trust agents at the top, then head to the 
door and hack the screen nearby to open it.  Then have the computer 
inside. 
 
Oops!  Now we’ve triggered the fail safe.  You’ll need to guard it for 
a minute and a half while Prometheus gets the codes.  Stick with your 
MP4 and face the doorway, blasting any aliens that come in.  Be sure to 
make use of the Trust cache nearby, too.  Unless it’s a Therm-mite, 
melee attack them if they get too close.  He’ll get the codes in time 
and access the secret passage.  Blast the Para-mites and go into the 
tunnel.  Kill one of the drones, and if you want to, take his Warp 
Pistol.  Once you enter the sewers, turn to the right and go into the 
drain pipe.

Upon exiting, go downstairs and into the tunnel.  Take the stairs on 
the right side, kill the aliens and sacs, and go the other side and 
look for a green valve.  Turn it to open the door ahead and go back 
down.  After traveling through another drain pipe, the tunnel ahead 
will have egg sacs and ghost mines.  Kill the aliens coming your way 
first before trying to safely blow up the mines, and destroy the egg 
sacs as soon as you’re able.  Keep going until you reach the next door 
you need to open and take the stairs to the left.  Go to the other side 
and through the passageway to the top of the room with the other green 
valve.  

Okay, we’re almost there.  Go through the now open door and walk 
through one more drain pipe.  You’ll reach the nest shortly afterward.  
Many of the eggs can be destroyed from ground level, but you’ll need to 
take the stairs upward to destroy the rest of them.  If you haven’t 
used your MK9, do so now until you run out of ammo, then go back to you 
other weapon.  The level ends when you destroy all 30 eggs.


*****************
Stage 5: Gridlock
*****************


You’ll begin in the East Wing.  At the start swap the pistol for the 
SCAR, and snipe at the conduit to the left.  Straight ahead is another 
ASE puzzle, you can solve it for the HVS45, but I suggest ignoring it.  
Turn left and snipe at the next conduit, and enter the door to your 
left.  You’ll see a Skimmer on the window, for now, head left and kill 
the two puppet humans.  Then turn around and go to the other side and 
kill the Drudge turret destroy the remaining portal at the end.  Now 
that that this area is clear, head through the door.

At the junction, go into the door at the right and kill the guards, 
it’s a dead end, but you won’t need to worry being killed from behind 
at least.  Take the left path and snipe the ceiling turret, then 
detonate any ghost mines in the room.  Keep going and you’ll see a 
conduit at the top of the stairs.  Snipe it from inside the room, 
because two dark turrets will shoot you from the left side.  A grenade 
will kill them in an instant. The conduit is in the left room.

Go through the door on the right, and continue through the halls 
blasting enemies until you go upstairs.  You’ll soon enter a red room 
with ghost mines.  Kill the enemies and detonate the mines, and go into 
either doors to the dining room, with more enemies and ghost mines.  
Drop down the hole in the next room, and go to the right.  After 
passing through the first doorway blow up the conduit on the left to 
secure the area.  

Go through the doors on the right to the west wing.  Go forward until 
you see a portal on the left for you to destroy.  Continue through the 
hallways until you get to a broken down door leaning above some rubble.  
After passing through the door, go to the right at the end of the 
hallway, then make two left turns.  You’ll see another ASE Puzzle which 
has a secret passage leading to the HVS45, but again, pass on it, it 
doesn’t have a lot of ammo.

There are two more conduits in the hallway after the door.  Destroy 
those to clear the West Wing.  Head into the door on the right and look 
around the circular room to scan the locks and open the door.  Once you 
step outside, you’ll need to save the president’s chopper.  Start by 
killing the enemies ahead of you, then focus on those eggs so they 
don’t keep bringing in Drudge for you to fight.  Take out the Skimmers 
next, they hate your charged Strike Rifle shots.  The final targets are 
those purple growths sticking out of the ground called Bio-nodes.  
They’re connected to the tentacles holding the chopper down.  The first 
few are in plain sight, but the rest are behind the gate, either near 
the chopper, or on the side of the building behind it.  When there’s no 
more Drudge or Bio-nodes left, the level is clear.


*****************
Stage 6: Invasion
*****************


Your suit will now be upgraded to jump farther and block even more 
damage now.  Go upstairs and outside the building.  Destroy the three 
conduits and Skimmers you encounter.  You’ll see another organic lock.  
While the first two are in plain sight, the third one is behind a 
dumpster on the right side, and another is behind a wooden box you need 
to break on the left.  Mites will be coming out of vents to pester you 
every so often too.  After opening the door, go down to the bottom of 
the stairwell and turn the green valve to stop the steam coming out of 
the pipes.  Go up the stairs until you see a door with a green light on 
it.  That’s where you’ll need to go next.  It’ll be like that for the 
other stairwells, too.

In the next room, fight your way through the guards and shoot the pulse 
boxes near the exit.  After a simple hallway with two pulse boxes and a 
lone puppet human, enter the door on the left.  Snipe the drudge from a 
distance with your SCAR and pick up one of their Strike rifles.  In the 
building to the left of you, you’ll be sniped by puppet humans as well 
as Skimmers hanging near the windows.  Kill them if you wish, then 
search for the locks to open.  One is one a couch nearby when you first 
enter, the others are on the walls near the door or windows.

As you exit outside, you’ll see an Invader climbing up the walls.  
You’ll fight this thing later at the end of the level, but for now, 
pick off the Drones below with your weapons.  A Scarab will burst 
through the wall on your right.  Kill him, and if you feel like it, 
take his Hive Cannon, but there’s an even better weapon if you go 
through the wall he just busted through.  Solve the ASE puzzle at the 
end of the Hallway to get a Striker.  Hang on to that beauty and save 
it for emergencies.  Destroy the portals at the end and enter the door 
to the second stairwell.  

Now, as you go up, you’ll see some flames.  The first two are 
unavoidable to my knowledge, so just run through as fast as you can.  
The third one can be put out with a fire extinguisher nearby, however.  
Once you find the door to enter, the next big room has more puppet 
humans, a nest spitting out mites, and some ghost mines thrown in.  
Carefully kill the enemies and blow up the ghost mines, you’ll be back 
outside when you exit.  Here, snipe the three drones in the windows to 
the left before you drop down, and once you do, snipe the ones in the 
windows to the right.  The street is littered with ghost mines, so 
detonate them all before you face them.  Only shoot if the enemies are 
closing in, and when you reach the end of the street, blow the conduits 
and the lone egg sac in the hallway.

Hack the hand scanner with the ASE so it’ll recognize your hand prints.  
In the first hallway, throw a grenade at the turrets blocking the door, 
and shoot the pulse boxes.  In the next hallway are egg sacs and mites, 
but they shouldn’t be a problem by now.  You’ll now be in the situation 
room.  You’ll need to hack three data hubs and collect the defense 
codes.  They can be done in any order.  Here’s their locations.

Data Hub #1 can be reached by going up some stairs to the right of you 
when you first enter.  They’ll lead you to a small room where you’ll 
find it. 
 
Data Hub #2 is in the center of the room, on ground level where all of 
the computers are. 
 
Data Hub #3 is in a room in the back.  Go up the stairs to the left and 
go straight into the small room ahead.

Now, when you extract the data from one data hub, a storm scarab will 
come out.  Scan it with the ASE to make it visible, then use the 
Striker on it.  After getting data from 2 data hubs, more enemies will 
appear.    Both the Storm Scarab and the second wave will come from a 
giant door in the room.  Getting all 3 will open the exit to the left 
of the giant computer.

Go through the doors and up the stairwell, killing the mites and egg 
sacs on the way up.  You’ll go through another giant room of guards and 
drones.  Destroy all of the Conduits you see, and then look for the 
four locks.  One is in a room with file cabinets, another is in a room 
to your right when you first enter on a table.  The last two are at the 
far left room.  One is outside the room on the wall, the other inside.  
Go down the stairwell until you find the door that’ll take you outside. 
 
First, snipe the Skimmers and drones below with the Striker or any 
weapon with a scope.  The drop down and make both Storm Scarabs visible 
and finish them off.  You will now face an Invader.  This creature has 
3 weak points.  One is on it’s underbelly, the other two are on the 
sides of it’s mouth.  When a certain part is damaged enough, attack the 
others.  If you have radiation grenades, throw them towards those weak 
points.  The more grenades, the better.  They’ll do excellent damage if 
they’re near those spots.  Try to use powerful weapons like the SMAW 
Rocket Launcher you’ll find in the crater, or the Shrieker from those 
Skimmers you killed eariler.  Upon killing the Invader, you’ll complete 
the stage.


*****************
Stage 7: Homeland
*****************


Start this level off by sniping with the SCAR to kill all of the drones 
and mites ahead.  There’s one sniping you from a building to the left.  
Then head to the right to battle more drones.  Prometheus will say that 
the bridge is down and you’ll need to find an alternate route.  Go to 
the top of the plank and snipe the drone on the walkway before dropping 
down.  After a short scene of the Drudge taking down a helicopter, go 
down the alleyway and blow up the cracked wall with a grenade.  This 
will open a secret room with an ASE puzzle, but I suggest you take out 
the nearby enemies first.  When you complete it, you’ll get a Striker.  
You’ll find another one later in the level, so use it whenever you 
like.

Destroy the Conduits and aliens after exiting the alleyway, then enter 
the destroyed building on the right.  Prometheus will tell you that the 
bridge ahead is still active, and that’s where the path will inevitably 
lead you to.  You can take a Shrieker from the shopping cart nearby the 
exit, because you’ll face another invader as soon as you drop down onto 
the bridge.  Use your grenades and Shrieker to easily kill it, then 
deal with the Skimmers after defeating it.  Blow up a few ghost mines 
and then take out the drones from a distance with your Striker.

Go the left and kill the two drones jumping out of the hole, then drop 
down and go through the sewers, killing the egg sacs and med-mites.  
When you reach the top, go the hole in the building to the left for 
another ASE puzzle.  Solving it will get you another Striker.  Don’t 
use it until the end of the level.  Go down the alleyway, destroying 
the portals and killing enemies, and at a later point, detonating a few 
ghost mines here and there.  Some drones will snipe from the walkways 
above, so stay alert.  At the end, you’ll face not one, but TWO 
invaders.

When you get the checkpoint, there’s another Shrieker laying down 
nearby.  As for the human cache box, use that to get more grenades when 
you run out.  Take the Invaders out one at a time, then go down into 
the subway tunnel ahead.  Detonate the ghost mines on the way to the 
open subway tunnel on the right side, then fight your way through.  
Mites will be coming out of the vents during this time, but you’ll soon 
come to a door on the right to kill the egg sacs inside this room.  
When you enter the next station, take the stairs to the left, destroy 
the lone egg sac, and hack the terminal with the ASE to move the subway 
so you can enter the tunnel.

Hey, look!  It’s where we started the first level from!  There are a 
few differences, though.  In the room with the egg sacs, you’ll need to 
find four locks instead on two this time, but is room is small, so you 
shouldn’t have any trouble here.  The room with the drones and conduits 
has a regen unit and an extra portal here and there.  Also, when you 
reach the giant conduit at the end, you’ll face more drones and mites, 
and even a few scarabs from time to time.  If you’re about to die, go 
down the stairs and take the first aid kits on the wall near the 
bottom.  Pass through the portal as soon as your suit is calibrated to 
end this stage. 


******************
Stage 8: Checkmate
******************


This starts off with the transmission between you and Prometheus being 
jammed.  You’ll need to destroy four jamming devices in the room.  
You’ll see what they look like in the intro cinema at the start of the 
level.  Before doing so, stay near the beginning of the level and pick 
off the guards with the Deatomizer MK4.  Shoot the two wall turrets at 
the far end of the room, near the elevator ahead.  Now, from where you 
begin, you can easily destroy the first three jammers.  The first two 
are near the beginning near the catwalks above you on the walls 
opposite each other.  Go to the right and snipe at the third one on the 
wall ahead of you, behind the boxes.  

Face the portal you came from and throw grenades at the soldiers coming 
out so they don’t kill you from behind.  Go to room in the back and go 
to the left to shoot the last jammers.  Then go up the walkway and use 
the ASE on the terminal to close the conduit and swap the SPAS Shotgun 
for the TPC Launcher.  Go to the terminal in the center and hack it to 
open the elevator.  Step in after blowing away the two guards.  By the 
way, the ones with the armor will explode after they die, so stay away 
from them unless they’ve been distengrated by a charged shot like the 
MK4 or Warp Pistol.

After exiting the elevator,  Your signal will be jammed again. You’ll 
notice the hallway has shields that come out of the walls or floor when 
you step on the black plates below.  The flash grenades can be helpful 
when the guards are together, then blast them with the TPC launcher.  
Snipe the two dark turret before entering the room, and you’ll see the 
jammers are in two rooms, and are on the same wall on opposite sides.  
Be sure to blow up the egg sacs so the mites will stop coming, too.  In 
the left room, there’s an ASE puzzle you can solve for the Deatomizer 
MK9.  Scan the computer in the center to gain control of the elevators, 
then blast the guards and head in.

Again, your signal will be jammed, and you’ll need to head to Lab III 
to blow up the jamming devices.  Kill the guards and head to left.  The 
flash grenades can be helpful when fighting those armored soldiers.  
You’ll need to head up either stairway (They lead to the same area) and 
walk across the walkway to the computer in the center.  Press the 
button to access Lab II.  However, a few trust agents will come out as 
soon as you unlock it.  Toss a Flash grenade their way and blow their 
brains out.

In Lab II, it’s more of the same.  However the walkway won’t appear 
this time.  You’ll see a terminal nearby in the small room at the top.  
Press the button to bring the walkway out and cross over to the 
terminal. Press the button to gain access to Lab III and go through the 
doors.  Once you’re there, you’ll see the first jamming device as soon 
as you open the doors.  Go up to the top you’ll see the second device 
near the small room on top of the second floor.  The last two are 
across each other on opposite sides of the terminal.  Then hack it with 
your ASE and leave.

You have a minute to escape the labs, but you won’t be able to get out 
in time.  When you reach Lab II, go to the right, and take the stairs 
to go to the other side.  Blast through the mites, but try to ignore 
unless their really annoying you.  By the time you reach the lab I 
doors, the countdown will end and you’ll need to find the computer to 
unlock the exit.  There will be three Shadow Scarabs in this room.  
Make them visible and blast them to death.  Then go to the second floor 
and hack the terminal to open the exit.

Hack the computer to open the doors to the containment room, and blast 
all of the trust agents.  Afterwards, the containment doors will open 
and you’ll have to fight various Mites, as well as the occasional Storm 
Scarab.  After it stops, go to the glass panel and you’ll finally see 
Prometheus and give you the full details.  Then hack the nearby 
terminal and exit through the elevator. 


****************
Stage 9: Closure
****************


Okay, start by throwing grenades at the enemies.  Quickly shoot the two 
ceiling turrets and circle around everyone while firing with the MK4.  
Take note of the weapons on either side of the room.  I usually use the 
Strike Rifle, and the Warp Pistol.  You’ll die several times trying to 
get past this part because everyone will try to gang up on you.  

If you survive, go down either hallway and blast the two ceiling 
turrets, then go forward.  You’ll then have to survive a nasty gauntlet 
of Drudge aliens.  It’ll start will some mites, the drones, and end 
with some Scarabs.  After about 2-3 minutes of this, you’ll get a 
message from Adams saying that the conduits are shut down and that the 
base will explode in 3 minutes.  

While you have your chat with Prometheus, do to the room behind the 
stairs you came down to get here, and hack the computer in front of you 
after you’re done talking to him.  Then hack the three mainframes 
behind you.  Return to the Hallway and you’ll need to restore the 
power.  Aim it at any of the eight units and you’ll fight a Scarab.  
Fire at it as fast as you can and it should go down.  Once you do this 
to at least 4 of them, the central conduit will open.  Head through it 
to complete the game and groan at the anti-climatic ending.

Ah well.


 -----------------------
(6. Trust Disc Locations)
 -----------------------

In Stages 3-8, you’ll see Trust discs hidden throughout the levels.  
Collect a disk by scanning it with the ASE.  There are a 10 discs per 
level, resulting in a total of 60 discs to collect.  For every 10 you 
collect, you’ll unlock an art gallery.  Collecting all ten in a level 
will unlock an achievement.  Discs do not appear in Stages 1,2, or 9, 
so don’t bother looking.  All of the discs will be listed in order.
