Duke Lives

Ego Items: 3

Pretty straight forward here. Zip up your pants and head over to the soldier by
the whiteboard. Drawing on the board is optional but go ahead and try it. Go to
the next door and head towards the alien fight. Head to the next path and pick
up the Devestator on the lift. If you played Duke Nukem 3D this next part should
be familiar.


Avoid all of its attack by simply strafing around the football field. The
soldiers will drop ammo supplies when you are about to run out. They are by
the red flares on the field. When its life is flashing red approach it and use
your USE key to finish it off. Kick its eye and you're all done here.

Dukes Pad

When you gain control, head to dukes bathroom. Here you will find some ego
points. Look in the mirror and admire yourself. Go to the next room by the
girls and examine the pool table. Hit every ball inside the pockets to get
some more ego points. Head down the hall and into the elevator. Press the
buttons inside the elevator.

Damn! Its Late...

Ego Items: 4

Go talk to everyone for some funny lines and go inside the Stage 1 doors.
Sign the kids book to get you some more ego points. Head towards the curtains
to talk to the host of the show. Afterwards head right and go up the stairs.
Find the guy using the toilet and making weird noises. Use the stalls here
to get some more Ego points. Head to the elevators to get to Duke's cave.

The elevator will stop halfway. Look for the glowing emergency hatch release
by the door and use it. Climb the ladder up and pry open the door. Head to
the museum. Look around and head to the kid sitting on Duke's throne.
Press the button next to him to get to the cave.

The Duke Cave

Ego Items: 7

Listen to the General and President then head to the door. Enter the next
door to encounter your first alien. Punch him through the door and go in.
Pick up any of the objects on the ground to throw it at the aliens. In the
next room kill off the aliens and examine some things in here for more ego
points. Punch the speed bag and punching bag for points. Grab a curl and lift
for points. Find the weights on the ground and place all of them on the bar.
There is one on the bench by itself, grab it and place it on the bar. Make
sure to have 3 on each side before lifting. Lift all the way up to get points.
Make a basket to get points too, to make a basket aim a little high above the
rim. Im not sure if the pinball machine has any ego points. The high score is
ridiculously high for me to try as im writing this FAQ. Maybe I will try it
some other time. If I had to guess you have to beat the score to get the
ego points.

When you're all done here examine the vent cover in the room. Open it and go
inside by crouching. Go right and avoid the flames. When you exit you will
find beers on the ground. Beer makes your tougher, take more damage. Melee the
aliens and go to the next room. Here you will use Duke Vision to see in the
dark. Open the door and go left, jump and crouch over the pipes to get down.
The aliens can't see in the dark so they will be easy to take out. In the next
room you will find a vent cover highlighted, punch it and go in.

Make your way around the pipes. Grab a trashcan and throw it at the aliens.
Look at the highlighted trashcans here and grab them. The pipe will slant
downwards. Jump on it to get to the next hole above. Punch the cover and fight
the aliens. Here you will get your first weapon, the AT Laser. Find the 2
Energy cells on the boxes in the room and place them in the highlighted reactor.
The lights will come back and a alien will attack you at the next door. Fight
off the next aliens and enter the next door for some RC driving.

Grab the controls to drive the car. What you have to do here is drive the car
to the reactor and push it down and through the hole. So drive the car up the
ramp, push the box to make the above platform slant. Drive up the slanted
platforms and fall down next to you. Slowly drive it to the reactor and knock
it down and into the hole. Grab the reactor and head back to the reactor room
to place it. You will find a new item here, the steroids. Pick it up and more
aliens will come out. Shoot them all and a new enemy will come out, the Pigcop.
They like to charge at you so runback while shooting it. Afterwards head inside
the corridor to pickup a new weapon, the M1911 Pistol. Pick it up and into the
next area. Fight more aliens here, there are exploding tanks you can use here
to throw at them. Head to your ride at the end to fight the mothership.

Mothership Battle

Ego Items: none

When the fight begins start shooting at the laser cannon up ahead. When you
shoot, your weapons heat meter will increase. If it fully fills up you have to
wait for the gun to cool down before shooting again. Transport ships will
also appear in front of Dukes ship. Shoot them down before they release any
aliens in the air. Continue shooting the cannon. Ships will fly over Duke.
Quickly destroy them before they get near him. They do good damage if hit.
Destroy the lower ships when the 3 flying ships approach you. Continue hitting
the cannon and its done for.

You'll be back into the cave. Melee the vent cover and go in. Crouch in and
turn on your Duke Vision. Go left and shoot the aliens down below.

The Lady Killer

Go save the girl by holding the elevator brakes. Keep holding it until you
reach the bottom. Go down the elevator hole and open the door. Duke will shrink
down to size! Push the luggage holder and head to the RC car and get on to ride
it. Boost up the ramp to get over. Work your way down the rubbled floors. When
you get to the lower level drive around to the gold statue. Drive up the
fallen statue and boost to get over the gap. Keep driving to the next areas.

The Lady Killer: Part 2

Ego Items: 1

Enemies will appear now. It is optional to kill them or just drive to the next
area. I would recommend not killing them and wait till you be back to normal
size. Get off your ride in the next area and go in. Notice the corpse on the
luggage? Jump on it and jump up the table. We have to open the door so the
RC car can get through. Jump over to the next tables. Jump the chairs to get
to the button by the door. Jump over on the plants area. Rats will attack you
here, melee them and press the button. Get back to your ride.

In the next area Pigcops will start to attack. Do not bother killing them and
just quickly drive to the next area. Boost through the Pigcops and get to the
area passed the gap. Push the luggage holder at the right to the leftside and
climb up the couch to press the button. Head to the device on the ground by
the girls to go back to normal size. Melee the glass to grab the Shotgun.
Enemies will now appear. Use the columns for cover and kill them all. New
enemy times will appear, Teleports. They like to teleport behind you when you
shoot at them. The shotgun can kill them in 1 up close hit.

Exit out through the door you came in from. Quickly backtrack back to the
previous areas. Don't hang around the Pigcop hole or they will keep spawning
out. More enemies will appear in the casino room. When you're done with them
approach a Slot machine and play it. It will give you some ego points. More
fighting in the next room. Use the steroids by the slot machine and melee
them. Head to the next area to finish here.

The Lady Killer: Part 3

Head towards the controls by the Duke statue. The goal here is to get to the
upper area. Press the controls and raise Dukes arms all the way up. Rotate
the statue so the upper arm is point near the soldier. Once thats done press
the 'Alien attack' button to lower the city blocks to jump on. Jump on Dukes
gun to get on the statue and head up. Kill the Pigcop at the door and head up
the vent.

Destroy the laser mines by shooting them or throwing something at it like a
rat or trashcan. Crouch and jump over the other lasers. Distinguish the flames
by shooting the extinguishers on the wall to get through. Grab the trip mines
on the shelfs and enter the door. Refill your ammo at the ammo box and prepare
to fight a new enemy, Assault Commander. It will fly around shooting rockets at
you. They hurt so run around the room to avoid them. Use the shotgun and get
up close to kill it faster. Talk to the General at the door to finish here.

Vegas in Ruin

Ego Items: 1

Approach the van to pick up the Ripper weapon. Head to the gunfight up ahead.
Use the turret to take out the aliens faster. Once dont head back and refill
your ammo if necessary. The alien will drop a new weapon, the Captain Laser,
during the fight. Pick it up because it has good ammo reserve, but fires kind
os slow. Follow the soldiers to the next areas. If you need Trip mines or a
shotgun look next to the area near where the soldier blew up the path. Its
inside the area with the columns.

Head up and fight more baddies. Use cover to heal as usual. Grab the RPG
on the trashcan before going downward into the crater. Head down and refill at
the ammo box, also theres a explosive cache near the ammo box on the crashed
alien aircraft. Approach the soldiers up ahead and prepare to fight. Use the
RPG to make quick work out of them. When they're all gone the big boss will


Equip the RPG and circle around him and begin to fire at it. Since you only have
limited RPG shots on him you need to lure him to the opposite side of the ammo
box to get more ammo. Get more ammo and continue shooting it. He likes to run
at you so quickly dodge and use the center part of the area for cover. Once it
gets to red life approach it and use the USE key. Humiliate him for ego points!
Head to the sewer entrance on the rocks to exit.

firing. Be careful of the Pigs that carry exploding barrels. You can insta kill
yourself if you fire at them with the RPG. Use the cover on the lift for

Melee the fence with the lockpad on it. Use the Railguns scope and take out the
Pigs. Head north to the red barrel. Shoot the barrel to lower the storage unit.

corner here. Climb the red ladder up and head up to find the wrecking ball's
battery. When you pick it up a alien aircraft will begin firing at you. Head
down and take cover behind the structure. Fire RPG's at it until it goes down,
remember there is a ammo box here. Take the battery back to the wrecking ball.
Use the machine and raise the ball upwards, then swing it left. Kill the aliens
shooting at you by ramming the ball into them. Keep the machine to the left
and raised and get out. Climb up the machine to get over. Open the door to
