IV. The Story

Long shadows claw desperately away from your dusty combat boots, fueled by
the relentless sun of a late Texas afternoon. Shading your eyes against the
glare, you squint for the thousandth time at the line of soldiers ahead of
you. It stretches on endlessly across the rubble, disappearing at last into
the cool shadows of a troop carrier. Soon you'll walk up the ramp into the
ship, climb into your one-man cocoon, tear through the interplanetary
gateway, and smash down light-years away from the blowing sand and blasted
ruins that surround the Dallas-Metro crater.

"What the hell is taking so long?!" you snarl, slamming the battered barrel
of your side arm, the blaster, against your scarred palm. "I've waited long
enough. Time to kick some Strogg ass..."

Slightly rocking back and forth under the sweltering August sun, you spit
out of the side of your mouth, rub your eyes, and think back to the day when
the wretched creatures first attacked. Like flaming meteors, their crafts
pounded into the Earth and unbelievably, these biomechanical aliens... these
hideous cyborgs... swarmed out while their ships still sizzled with reentry
heat. They killed or captured anything that lived. We figured that the
Strogg were after our planet's resources: minerals, metals, and water:
things like that. But their onboard storage facilities did little to
disguise what they considered to be resources: fleshy limbs and organs for
new cyborgs, and of course, food.

The line moves. And moves again. Into the cool shadows at last. The
assembled armies branch off into new lines divided by corps and unit.
"I can't deal with this shit - what's the friggin' hold-up?"

"Cool your jets, marine," Tokay mutters and smiles over his shoulder. "We'll
all get a few Strogg heads to take home as souvenirs. I promise you that."

"Yo, soldier, 3585." The medtech's voice startles you. "You in or out?"
Competent hands guide you into the coffin-like opening of your Mark 9A drop
pod: sleek, dark, and invisible to the Stroggos defense systems. One of the
techs begins to drop the reinforced pod door. "Sleep tight, soldier. You'll
see sunlight in less than six and half-hours. Not our sun, mind you..." <SLAM>
Pitch black except for the mild glow of your video readout system in front
of you. You've done this a dozen times in the sim classes. No sweat. Just a
few short hours to sleep, recharge, and then... the moment of glory. But this
time it's for real.

It's also time to think. You recall your first official day of training,
your unit commander discussing how these damn parasites made it to Earth and
other nearby colonies in the first place. By employing our best satellites
and long-range scanners, we learned how they traveled light years so quickly
- the Strogg used these black hole-like gateways as their highway to heaven.
We still don't know if they created these rips in the fabric of space and
time, or if they simply discovered them by accident. Either way... it's just
like opening the door to an all-you-can-eat restaurant for these bastards.
In about two hours, we'll be entering the same interstellar portals, to hit
'em where it hurts... on their own turf.

You close your eyes and relish this thought. Eventually, you nod off to the
low hypnotic hum of the troop carrier.

*Crackle* ... *fzzzz* ... "Greetings to the people of the Coalition. This is
Flag Admiral Crockett, speaking to you from the bridge deck of Phobos. We
are entering the outer orbits of Stroggos, the alien's home system. As we
had postulated, Stroggos' atmosphere is harsh but breathable. We expect to
make planetfall soon. Now is the time to switch on your debriefing panel if
ya need it."

"Boomer?" the voice crackles through every soldier's headset. "Drop X-ray
squad in 30 on my mark. You copy?"

"Roger that!" In another pod, your sergeant snaps back. "OK boys and girls,
you see the clock on your heads-up. Two demerits for anyone who up-chucks
during bounce and roll!"

*Shthunk!!* Your drop pod is shot from the side of the carrier and hurtles
downward. *Wheee-oooooo!* Incendiary atmosphere howls past the pod's rapidly
heating shell. *Ka-WHUMP! * The pod wall suddenly buckles to your right, but
stays intact. Another pod must have clipped yours on its way in. ECM didn't
indicate enemy fire. Shit. Thrusters and stabilizing gyros are fading. Based
on the pings, the other pods are pulling away. Below you, the large alien
city roars into focus on the screen. But where are the other pods? They were
there a minute ago.

Suddenly, distorted radio chatter lights up, "Mayday! Mayday! Lost all
power... shielding failed... missed dz... some kind of EMP is... kzzzt... us
out. We're dropping like fli... zzzzkkkzzzt". Silence. Damn! If the Strogg
have electromagnetic pulse defenses and we failed to detect them... all of us
are in the shitter.

That HUGE blip has to be the Big Gun.

You do a slow dogleg left as your
navcomp finds a place to land when all of a sudden retros kick in and propel
you south.

"What the...?" Before you know it you skip across the lip of a crater and
slam into a structure, a good distance away from your target. Dazed and
bleeding from a head cut you toggle open the labeled arsenal bins and reach
for where your gear ought to be stowed. Damn. Nothing but your sidearm. Damn

You leap out the crushed pod door, alone, with blaster in hand, and tear off
into the room with the bittersweet stench of vengeance coursing through your


We have cleared the interplanetary gateway between Earth and Stroggos. In
exactly three hours operation Alien Overlord will commence.
As I speak to you, your pods are being fueled and all systems brought
online. Activate your field computers. The following Intel brief will
provide you with your military objectives, terrain information, arsenal and
equipment details, and enemy analysis.

Never before has there been a greater challenge to life, liberty, and
civilization. This is a crusade in which we will accept nothing less than
victory. No matter how long it may take us to overcome the Strogg's barbaric
assault, the people of Earth in their righteous might will win through to
absolute victory. Today we will make very certain that this form of barbaric
treachery shall never endanger us again. With confidence in you, and with
the unbending determination of our people, we will gain the inevitable
triumph -- so help us God.

So go forth and kick ass, soldiers!


The core of the Stroggos civilization is the capital city of Cerberon. The
highly defended complex is built into the base of an enormous crater named
Crater Majoris. Between the northern plains and the southern sea of
Stroggos, Cerberon contains the major defense, communication, and political
controls for the Strogg civilization. At the southern tip of Majoris is a
second crater called Crater Minor. Crater Minor contains the defense base
complex for the city of Cerberon.

[Political Structure]
The Strogg civilization is governed through a system of Warlords. Each is
given strategic locations to command and control. A single leader, called
the Makron, is chosen from the Warlords. He commands Stroggos from within
the Palace City located at the northern end of Cerberon. Losing him would
leave the Strogg confused and in turmoil as the Warlords battle internally
to determine a successor. This would remove any chance Stroggos has for
creating a well-organized strike or defensive position.

[Defense Systems]
Guarding Stroggos is a defense system we refer to as the Big Gun. This
defense system detects and destroys any ship over a few meters in length.
Also, to protect against ground assaults, a deadly laser security grid
surrounds the entire capital city.

[Energy Resources]
Bluish crystals called Steedium are the source for most of the energy that
powers Stroggos. The energy gained from processing these crystals provides
them with the power run their entire civilization as well as their planetary
defense weapons systems (a.k.a. the Big Gun).


Your primary objectives are to establish a communications uplink, destroy
the planetary defense systems, disable the Laser Grid control computers, and
assassinate the Makron commander. Once the communication link is made,
subsequent communications will guide troops to their primary targets,
destroy targets of opportunity, and provide necessary ground support for the
follow-up air strike.

[Communications Uplink]
Your first objective is to establish an uplink between command and the
Strogg communication computers. These are in the exterior military base
south of the main capital of Cerberon. This will enable continued
communications, location information, and combat analysis beyond the base
complex. Failure to establish this uplink is not an option. Once on the
planet, the combat situation may change quickly. It is imperative that you
regularly check your computer systems for updated orders.

[Seek and destroy the Security Grid Control CPU]
Next you are to head into the City Outskirts and destroy their Security Grid
CPU so we can infiltrate the Strogg's defenses. Getting into the systems so
we can find out why they are really attacking Earth is a must. Fail and the
entire Earth populace will be decimated.

[Locate The Reactor Core and Disable Its' Safety]
After shutting down Defenses, kill their Power Supplies as well. Shutting
the power will enable us to bombard our targets without any fear of
retaliation. It is imperative this is done, or we are a lost cause.

[Locate and destroy the Laser Grid Control Computers]
This is an important objective, marine, so don't fuck up. Shutting down
those lasers means all you have to do is kill Makron and you are done. Kill
the lasers and we can send in our ground troops. It also means our ships
won't be carved like a roast Turkey.

[Terminate Makron]
This is it, soldier. Get in, blast Makron into alien slime, and get the hell
outta Dodge. Make Earth Proud.


The Strogg environment is in some ways like earth, but in many ways much
more hostile. The Strogg use a number of standard systems for activating
machines, opening doors, and using elevators. Their interface is easy to
adapt to: walk to it, over it, or shoot it. Other elements of the world are
much more hazardous and can be deadly.


Buttons, Floorplates, and Levers: There are three ways to activate a switch.
Touch it, walk on it, or shoot it.

Doors: The majority of doors on Stroggos open as you approach them. If one
doesn't open automatically, seek a button, floorplate, or key.

Secret Doors: Some secret doors conceal secret passageways or military
supplies. Most secret doors open when shot. Others open by activating
floorplates, buttons, or levers.

Area Doors: Specific symbols indicate the exit to a given area.

End of Unit Complex Symbol: The Strogg marked off areas to indicate a one
way passage. Once you leave a unit complex you cannot return.

Secret Areas: The Strogg have concealed military supplies in different
locations within the city. Recon your surroundings closely. Sometimes the
slightest variation in the environment could mark the entrance of a secret
area. There is no visual data available on actually where the secrets are.
Use your eyes soldier!


Water: The water on Stroggos is safe enough to enter without needing an
enviro-suit, but remember to come up for air periodically. Be careful of
water currents.

Slime: All over Stroggos are pools of toxic waste from their refineries.
This slime eats away at your flesh unless protected by an enviro-suit.

Lava: Stroggos has large amounts of volcanic activity. Don't go anywhere
near lava unless it is absolutely necessary. An enviro-suit won't help you

Traps: We know very little about the internal defense systems on Stroggos.
Given their warlike nature and the importance of Cerberon to the Strogg,
expect the environment to be deadly.

V. The Enemy

Light Guard
Description: Weakest of the three processed humans, armed solely with a
simple blaster.
Defense/Weapon Analysis: Easy
Comments: Although their weapons may only sting, they may attack in packs or
summon help from the big dogs.

Shotgun Guard
Description: These loyal troops have an automatic scattergun prosthetic.
Defense/Weapon Analysis: Easy
Comments: He goes down easy, but packs a punch

Machine-gun Guard
Description: Bigger, meaner, and deadlier than above...with a machine-gun for
a right arm.
Defense/Weapon Analysis: Easy
Comments: They tend to charge in droves and have a sharp eye.

Description: Strong, muscle-bound warrior who dishes out chain gun speed
Defense/Weapon Analysis: Medium
Comments: These bullies have one objective in mind, marine - to fill your
body with as much lead in the least amount of time. They can take a beating,
and are effective at ducking your ammo. Also watch out for post-mortem spray
from their chain gun caused by a spasm in their arm. Split once you see one
fall to its knees.

Description: The fighting elite for the Strogg, outfitted with a powerful
machine gun and an automatic grenade launcher.
Defense/Weapon Analysis: Medium
Comments: This cybernetic terror eats Mutants for breakfast before coming to
work - on you. He does have one weakness, though. It takes a second for his
hand to open up into the machine gun so take advantage of the brief delay.

Description: He has a metal spike as one arm, a hammer as another, and moves
very quickly.
Defense/Weapon Analysis: Medium
Comments: This bald mutha is one deadly freak. He may hit the dirt easy, but
he'll get up and is relentless in his pursuits.

Iron Maiden
Description: Equally as powerful as the Gunner, this femme fatale has both
an arm-mounted rocket launcher and flesh tearing claws.
Defense/Weapon Analysis: Medium
Comments: The cyber-bitch from hell...not the kind of girl to take home to

Description: As the name suggests, this threatening organism has the ability
to awaken dead Strogg from eternal sleep.
Defense/Weapon Analysis: Medium
Comments: When he is not healing, the Medic moves about on two hydraulic
legs, and is armed with a laser blaster that shoots at hyper speeds.

Description: Four-legged beast with a probe on its back. Once fired, it
attaches itself and literally sucks the life from you.
Defense/Weapon Analysis: Medium
Comments: The Parasite makes Cujo look like Lassie on Prozac.

Description: With two massively mechanized legs and one shoulder-mounted
railgun, the Gladiator is the daddy of all the adapted humanoids.
Defense/Weapon Analysis: Medium/Hard
Comments: Once targeted, you have less than a second to sidestep or you're
toast. Also watch for his lethal left-handed clamp grip.

Description: A small two-winged monster, comprised of a controlling brain
and a cyborg body that allows it to levitate.
Defense/Weapon Analysis: Medium/Hard
Comments: The Flyer moves fairly quickly, travels in packs, and each wing is
a laser blaster.

Description: Relies on a huge jet packed attached to its back, with laser
blasters mounted into his shoulders.
Defense/Weapon Analysis: Medium/Hard
Comments: With its durable shell, swift maneuverability, and insatiable
appetite for destruction, the Icarus is an aerial nightmare.

Arachnid (PSX Quake II exclusive)
Description: He uses dual Railguns (one on each arm) for long range attacks,
but can also swing each Railgun equipped arm when his prey is in closer
Defense/Weapon Analysis: Hard
Comments: Constant movement is the best defense against the Arachnid's
fierce dual Railgun Attack. The more you move, the less chance he has to
target you.

Description: Tanks have three weapons they use at random: an arm-mounted
machine gun, an arm-mounted laser blaster, and a shoulder-mounted rocket
Defense/Weapon Analysis: Hard
Comments: Get in, take your shot, and get out...repeat as often as necessary.
These metallic beasts can endure massive gunfire.

Tank Commander
Description: These Tanks are a special class, designed to secure the Inner
City from infiltrators.
Defense/Weapon Analysis: Hard
Comments: Consider planning your means of attack beforehand, rather than
running into their view with your weapons blasting.

your game play control options.

VII. Battle Tactics (AKA not being blown into gibs)
There are several Tactics you must learn in order to get to a Quake Pro
Level. Those guys on the net aren't Beginners, and they'd love to nail fresh
meat. (AKA beginners.)

1. HIDE!!! - First and foremost, if you see that Rocket heading at you,
hide!!! This won't do with other weapons, like the BFG, but for every other
one, it works.

2. Circle Strafing - This is also important. To get in close to do max
damage, get in and start, say, Turning left while Strafing Right. Result:
You wheel around that Tank with ease. If you challenge the Tank with your
blaster, and you come out alive, you have mastered the CS.

3. Shoot n' Scoot - Also useful. If there's a Tank down there and he can't
get up to you, Take a few potshots, then strafe behind a wall until he's
done firing. Repeat as necessary.

4. Dodging shots - Basically, are you gonna stand there with your "pal"(used
loosely here) warming up his BFG? Get the hell outta there while you can!!!
5. Go for the Gold! -Or BFG, or Railgun... simply put, if you have a
Machinegun and your "buddy" has a Railgun, chances are you're shit outta
luck. Get the good stuff before Rocking.

6. Get the Armor, Silly - Armor can be your saving Grace.

7. Don't be a Hero! - Simply put, this ain't the movies, Arnold, you are the
hero, but playing like it's a movie will do nothing.

8. NEVER FACE BOSSES HEAD ON - I think you know this one.

9. Rocket Jumps - All this time and I've NEVER put in Rocket Jumping. Oh my 
god. :P Anyway, here goes, Rocket Jumping 101: (fanfare)

1) Aim Downward.
2) Press Fire.
3) At the Same Time, Jump.

If you time it right, you'll be thrown into the air much higher then you
ever thought possible. So high, in fact, you'll make Michael Jordon
jealous. :D

Let's face it, the Blaster is the weapon of yours that you'd otherwise use
as a last Defense, or unless you're an expert Quake Player. (If you are, why
are you here?) Use this for the first few rounds, and then basically ditch
it unless you must need it. But by the time you do, you're dead anyway.

2.| Shotgun | M1L1 | 100 | 1 |
The Shotgun will be your buddy for the first few levels, though it isn't
exactly the choice weapon to use on a Tank. By the time this weapon's magic
wears off, the Super Shotgun should be yours.

3.| Super Shotgun | M1L2 | 100 (really 50) | 3 |
The Super Shotgun is probably your best buddy for destroying most of the
enemies of the game. It is twice as powerful as the normal Shotgun, but as a
result eats twice the bullets. (Hence, the 50 in the Max Rounds table.) Can
down a Gunner up close with 2 shots, a Gladiator in 6.

4.| Machinegun | M1L3 | 200 | 2 |
A good backup weapon, the Machinegun is Weak, but delivers its' shot
instantly. Use in bursts on bigger enemies, using the Duck n' Cover Method.
Not really recommended on anything below a Gunner.

5.| Chaingun | M2L1 | 200 | 3 |
Using an insane amount of ammo, the Chaingun makes your opponent look like
Swiss Cheese. Can efficiently down an enemy in seconds. Long Warm-up and
Cool-Down phase, about a second each.

6.| Grenade | M2L1 | 50 | 1 |
Grenades, by themselves, aren't too good of a weapon. You really need the
Grenade Launcher to make this an effective Weapon. Makes "tick" noises every
second. After the fifth, it explodes. Hold with Fire and release when you
want to. Holding makes it easier to get nearby baddies and longer distance

7.| Grenade Launcher | M3L5 | 50 | 4 |
Much more useful once you grab it, The G. Launcher transforms Grenades into
better weapons. Using this, if out of rockets, you can do the Grenade-Jump,
but it is much trickier. Not to be used in confined areas. Strangely, you
can still use Grenades normally after you get it.

8.| Rocket Launcher | M3L5 | 50 | 4 |
The R. Launcher is one of the best weapons in the game, both powerful and
beneficial for you, in the form of Rocket Jumps. See the Battle Tactics
section for more information on that.

9.| HyperBlaster | M2L3/4 (Depends on order you enter) | 200 | 5 |
One of the best weapons you can get, the HB is a Chaingun on Speed. Zero
Spin-up and Cool-down times mean you can fill him with white-hot plasma

10.| Railgun (AKA Sluggun and Slugthrower ) | M3L2 | 50 | 5 |
Simply the best weapon in the game, The Railgun can blast several Scumbag
Strogg in a line. Firing Depleted Uranium Slugs at High Velocities, it can
blast a Tank down in 5 Shots. The Best weapon you can get if you don't go
for secrets.

11.| BFG10K | M4L4 | 200 (really 4) | varies... |
Normally THE Weapon in most other id games, (DOOM, anyone?) The BFG10K is
found in 1 secret only. A second delay before firing as it compresses 50
Energy Cells into a ball. Useless against single enemies, but if it's a big
ol' room of Strogg, power it up and watch the Light Show.

IX. Items Index and Ratings
Pick up these helpful items whenever possible. Items take effect when picked 

Shells, Cells, Bullets ,Grenades ,Rockets
If you use the big guns, you need these.
There are five major ammo types: shells, cells, bullets, grenades, and
rockets. Except for the blaster, you must have ammunition to use a weapon.
Each ammo type has a maximum you can carry.

Flak Jacket, Combat Suit, Body Armor
Armor, Silly. You need armor unless you like being Swiss Cheese. There are
three armor types: Flak Jacket, Combat Suit, and Body Armor. Each one
provides a certain amount of protection against both normal attacks and
energy weapon attacks. If you take enough hits, your armor strength depletes
down to nothing. So seek out unused breastplates. Pick up and salvage armor
that is not as good as your current armor to improve your armor health.

Armor Shards: Special remnant of armors, which add a bit more durability(+2)
to your existing protection.

Energy Armor:(Called Power Shield in the Manual) This provides improved
protection against energy weapons. While it is being used, it drains energy
from your cells when damaged.

Health: There are two types of standard health kits: First Aid and Medkits.
First Aid will heal you +25 Health, while Medkits give you a quick +10 boost.

Bandoleer: Increases your carrying capacity for all ammunition except
grenades and rockets.

Backpack: This allows you to carry more ammo on your back.

Enviro-Suit: This protects you against damage from hazardous liquids, such
as Slime.

Quad Damage: The quad temporarily multiplies all your weapon's strengths by
four times. Let the gibbing begin!

Mega-Health: This provides a temporary but significant boost to your health.
This will wear off after a minute or so.

Invulnerability: The invulnerability item renders you temporarily

Super-Adrenaline: This slightly increases your health permanently.

X. Deathmatch Help and Options

Quake II's "Multiplayer" allows multiple players to enter a game together.
The most popular way to play Quake II Multiplayer is a Deathmatch, which has
no monsters, just player versus player! The goal of the game is to kill your
opponents more often than they kill you. Each kill counts for one "frag",
and if you kill yourself then you loose a frag, thus it's not a great idea
to go swimming in the lava or juggle your own grenades.

After you die, press fire to reappear, or "respawn", in the game. You'll be
brought back at one of several random respawn locations. Throughout the map
you will find different artifacts, such as weapons, ammo, health and
powerups, that are needed to be successful at destroying your enemy. When
starting a Quake II Multiplayer, your Deathmatch experience is a true
fragfest! Deathmatch supports up to 4 players.

When you pick start on the Main Menu, you are presented with single or
Multiplayer options. Select the latter to get the following Choices:

Deathmatch: The game to play on Quake 2, Deathmatch is the Classic Kill or
be killed, shoot 'em up Fragfest. Nab anything that moves.

Team Deathmatch: Not as good as the other guy? Want to prove your superior
ability? TDM is for you! Whether 2-on-2, 2-on 1, or 3-on-1, you can team up
or outwit the other team in this mode.

Versus: The ultimate Endurance Test, Versus is for the Diehard Quake
Fanatic. Just like DM, except:
1. No Health or Powerups.
2. When you're Done, see ya.
3. Last man standing wins 1 point.
4. Then it goes all over again.

through the doorway. When all three are dead, head up through the doorway to

then the napping Guard and his two mates. Collect Health and Shells x2,
before proceeding to the door.

Open the door to take pot shots at the Gunner and Enforcer. Once they're
goners, enter and head to the computer console on the far side to reveal the

Detention Center

Turn around and strafe into the left and right corridors to shoot two
Enforcers. Collect Health and Shells in corners of room, then take either
corridor to the next passage and grab Grenades. Watch out for the Tank at
the end of the passage though - avoid his deadly plasma blasts and grenades.
Take cover in left or right doorway, strafing into the passage to shoot at
him - to save ammo, use the Blaster. When he's finally croaked, go through
and drop off the left side of the stairs, into the shallow water. Look left

water and up the bank for the Jacket armor. Still invulnerable, head for the
control room to kill the Gladiator and Enforcer. Grab the Yellow Key and
head upstairs to exit through the door.

Head back up the stairs to where you shot the Tank, and enter the left door
to a short corridor. Open the next door and head either side, to find a
Berserker - retreat to the doorway and you'll be able to shoot him at
leisure, as he can't make it over the shallow pit! Go through either passage
again, to shoot up at the Enforcer on the ledge. Once he's dead, proceed
into the large chamber, to lure another Enforcer - best to retreat to the
doorway again. Collect the Bullets he leaves, and then return to the large
chamber. Head up the far stairs to find yellow beams barring the way. Snipe
the Berserker on the opposite ledge. Return downstairs and two Enforcers
will be released - take cover behind the doors again. When they're goners,
open the right door and shoot the sitting duck Berserker. Enter and ride the
lift up, turn around and blast the wall to reveal Secret 1: Jacket Armor.

and hit the red switches to open all six cells: there's Bullets, Shells, and
Health in three of them - the others contain those moaning prisoners whom
you can finally shut up!

Return to the room where you just killed the Gunners and Enforcers. Go to
the far right corner (opened panel) for Health and hit the red button. Turn
left and hit the button by the left door to open it. Go inside and down the

into the room to kill the three Gunners - but watch out for their grenades.
Enter and shoot down at two more Gunners below - or drop a Grenade on them.
Go downstairs and grab the Jacket Armor from under the stairs, and the
Bullets from the corners. Going through either doorway at the end, open the
door to find the Pyramid - but first you'll need to find the two Keys.
So head back to the room and up the stairs to enter the door. Go through the
next and kill the Gunner. Collect the Bullets he leaves, then hit the
computer to disable the security lasers. Make your way back to the first
room in the level, and then turn right to enter the door. Go through the

to reveal Secret 1: a Chaingun. Head through the corridor to the next

his fire. Head through to the next room and kill the Enforcer. Follow the
corridor back round to the start. Head down the opposite stairs for the

run past the pulsing laser beams to claim the Grenade Launcher. Kill the two
Shotgun Guards who appear from the right passage, then dash past the other
pulsing laser beams for Jacket Armor. Enter the passage and grab Grenades
from the left and Rockets from the right. Proceed to the next passage and
shoot the Guard. Collect Grenades and Rockets & Health from either end, then
proceed to the next passage. If you dare, dash for the Shells and Bullets
behind the pulsing beams - but it's not really worth it. Instead run past
the beams in either outer passage to reach Health x2 and the lifts at the

Take either lifts up to reach a rectangular passage with two 'Tanks'
patrolling it. Concentrate on destroying one, then the other, blasting from
distance. If they get either side of you, just leg it past one. When they're
both dead, a large explosion destroys most of the middle section, revealing
a tracked Tank Commander. Take cover behind the remaining pillars, blasting
him with the Grenade Launcher. When he eventually snuffs it, blast the left
and right outer walls to open two panels for Secrets 1 & 2.

Drop down the hole in the middle of the yard. Shoot the two Shotgun Guards
by the pipes, then head either side and take the lift up. Flick the switch
to reveal the power source. Avoiding its beams, blast it until it blows.
Kill the Guard who comes through the deactivated forcefield. Then head in
there to shoot another, but DON'T hit the Exit button yet! Instead jump up
the ladder on the back side of its pillar to reach the ledge for Rocket
Launcher and Rockets.

Power Plant

First off, shoot the Gunner behind the red lasers. Either shoot down at the
Spider Mutant, or drop down there to kill him. Then proceed around the back
to shoot two Gunners. Hit the red button to deactivate the red lasers, then
drop down the ladder. Take running jumps over the two sludge pools. Go
through the door and take the lift up to find the Red Key. Ride the lift

fire-draft's just disappeared.

Shoot the two Iron Maidens, and then hit the green button on the pillar to
deactivate the yellow lasers. Grab the Health and Bullets, then take the
lift up, ready to battle two Icaruses. Once dealt with, take the lift up to

walkways either side. If you've got ammo for the Grenade Launcher, lob shots
down at the two Gladiators below to kill them (easier from here than down
below). Head along the left walkway and enter the door (the other is

Through the next door, be ready to battle an Iron Maiden and Gunner. With
them dispatched, head down the stairs and turn to shoot the Gunner coming
from the opposite passage. Drop down to the floor and turn around to find
the glowing green Data CD in the alcove. Immediately watch out for two Iron
Maiden up above. Once they're dead, enter their alcove for Grenades and Body
Armor. Then blast the Gunner and Gladiator below. Drop down and grab Health
and Slugs from the right alcove, then head for the far the passage. Turn
left to blast another Gladiator, grabbing the Slugs from his dead body.
Enter the door to a short corridor. The next door leads to the floor of the
level start, where you grenade the two Gladiators (you did, didn't you-).
Enter the left door, ready to blast a Gunner and Gladiator. Shoot the
central pillar behind them to open a panel in it. Collect the Health and
Bullets in the corners before entering it. Climb up the ladder for Secret 1:
Body Armor and Railgun. Open the secret door behind the latter to return to
the top of the starting room. Head right to enter the door to a short

Shoot the Berserker through the next door, and the Iron Maiden on the left.
Snipe up at the Iron Maiden on the high ledge. Now comes the tricky part:
you have to get past the alternating laser beams - don't run for it, just
time small steps forward just as the beam ahead is about to disappear.
There's a couple of Berserkers waiting for you at the other end. Collect the
Health on the left, and then snipe at the Iron Maiden up on the left ledge.
Take the right lift up to the ledge, ready to blast the two Flyers, which
come through the roof. Head along the walkway, grabbing the Health on the
left of the pillar. Continue round to find more Health and Bullets. Hit the
button to take the lift down, ready to blast the Gunner at the bottom.
Collect Shells x2 on the right, avoiding the deadly water. Exit via the door
and follow the corridor. Through the next door, blast the dozy Berserker and
the Gladiator on the far side. Flick the button on the left to deactivate
the forcefields. Drop down and exit through the right door (the one by the
Gladiator is jammed). The corridor leads back to the room with the secret
pillar panel. Exit by the next door, to the bottom of the starting room.
Enter the far door to a corridor. Through the next door you'll find Cells,
Slugs, and Grenades x2. Opening the sliding door, be ready to blast a Flyer
and Iron Maiden. Collect Bullets x2 by the right pipes, before following the
next passage. Shoot the Iron Maiden in the final room, before dropping into
the hole.

Toxic Waste Dump

Collect Health x2, Bullets, and Rockets. Enter the next room and blast the
Gladiator and Gunner. Jump right over the sludge for the HyperBlaster and
Cells x2. Jump back and follow the passage, shooting another Gunner. Kill
the two Berserkers round the corner - lure them back to the passage, which
they can't enter. Exit the passage again and blast the left grating on the
right wall, revealing a Gladiator. Blast him, then enter his alcove for
Secret 1: Health and Rockets x2.

Head through the sliding door to a corridor. The next door leads to another
sludge room: shoot the Iron Maiden, then another up on the right ledge. Grab
Grenades, and Cells and Health from the far corner, then head right to take
the lift up. Enter the next door to a corridor. Be ready with the Railgun to
blast the Tank through the next door. Shoot the Gunner up on the ledge, then
head right on the ground, ready to shoot a Gunner. Snipe up at the Tank on
the walkway, and then collect Health, Shells, and Bullets.

Return to the previous room and back your way up the stairs - when the
secret panel opens below, use your Grenade Launcher to dispose of the two
Gunners. Head back down there to collect Health x2, then return up the
stairs. Follow the walkway round to a lift - snipe the Gunner above before
riding it up. Collect Grenades, Bullets, Cells, and Health before heading
down the passage to enter the door.

Follow the passage to another door. On opening it, be ready to kill the
Gladiator and Iron Maiden on the other side. Collect Health x2, then cross
the bridge. Drop onto the right ledge, then head down the side of the sludge
slope. Run through the sludge tunnel (hurting you slightly) to find Secret
2: Body Armor. Run back through the sludge tunnel, and then head back up the
slope to the ledge. Drop down by the door and retrace your route around the
level to the high bridge.

This time, enter the door at the end, to the piston room. Open the next
door, turning left to shoot a Gladiator. Follow the passage round the corner
to meet another, followed by two Gunners. Kill them all, and then proceed to
the end of the passage. Turn left and blast the broken bar, then enter the
alcove. Collect Health x2, Cells, and Bullets, and then hit the red button
to blow up the ledge opposite, revealing the passage below. Use the Grenade
Launcher to lob a couple of shots into it, luring out two Icaruses. Take
cover behind the crates as you shoot them down.

Drop into the passage (it'll hurt) and collect Health and Shells x2. Follow
the passage to a room with two Gunners. Dispose of them, and then grab
Bullets, Shells, and Health before heading upstairs to the exit.

Pumping Station

Through the door is another Railgun, but be ready for the two Gunners and
Shotgun Guard who come to investigate, followed by a Gladiator and Shotgun
Guard. Round to the right you'll find some Health, but watch out for another
Gunner coming down the right stairs. Heading up there, you'll find a couple
more. Grab the Cells, then exit through the door.

Take the lift up and turn around to open the door. Blast the two Guards in
the large chamber, then grab the Cells, Bullets, and Health. Kill the two
Berserkers who come down the slope (you can retreat to the passage to shoot
them in safety).

Now go up the slope and shoot the Guard in the far right corner. Now look up
at that large cracked pipe - shoot it to blow it open. Jump up the crates,
collecting Mega Health, and into the opened pipe. Follow the shallow water
passage round to a pool and shoot down two Flyers. Grab Health x2 and ride
the lift up. Collect Cells x2, and then drop down the right hole, into
another water passage. Follow to a pool and shoot down two more Flyers. Jump
out onto the left slope and make your way up. Blast the Tank over the way,
then look up at the structure on the left to see an orange switch. Shoot it
to open the panel on the left, revealing Secret 1: the BFG 10K! Exit through
the door and follow the winding passage.

Go through the door and into the right passage to kill a Guard and grab
Health x2 and Bullets. Return to the ledge for Grenades x2, and then drop
into the room where you killed the Berserkers. Head up the slope and through
the door in the far right corner. Opening the next door, be ready for two
Berserkers, Gunner, and Guard. Turning right, you'll also face a Tank and
Gunner. (If you want the Body Armor on the crates, you'll have to Rocket
-jump via the single crate.) Enter the pump room and hit the red button on
the right, then grab all the goodies before exiting through the sliding

Pumping Station 2

Enter the door and collect Cells, then follow the passage, shooting the
Gunner on the slope. He's followed by two Berserkers. Once they're dealt
with, turn around and reverse up the slope so you can blast the Gunner on
the ledge. At the top of the slope, collect Health and Bullets, then follow
the path round. Watch out for the Gunner to the right of the Health x2. The
left door's locked, but shoot the wall to right of it and it'll open to
reveal Secret 1: Body Armor.

Head right along the passage to collect the Armor Shards and blast another
Gunner. Continue through the next two doors, ready to face a Tank in the
pump room. Shoot the Machine Guard above, and then collect Health x2. Round
to the left, hit the red button, and then blast the drum-shaped plinth to
blow a hole in the floor. Shoot down through it at the Gunner and Guards
below, before dropping in. Shoot the greenish sloping wall there to blow
open a secret passage - jump into it to find Secret 2: Invulnerability.
Quickly exit and follow the passage right to kill the three Gunners at the
end. Climb up the ladder and head right around the ledge for Bullets and
Shells. (For the Body Armor to the left of the ladder, you'll need to
Rocket-jump - or later, head through the tunnel by the sludge pool to the
left of the Flyer alcove.)

Drop down and enter the small, dark door. Jump over the sludge and enter the
next door. Shoot the Flyers, then grab the Health and climb the ladder. Turn
right and make your way around the narrow ledge above the sludge passage to
find Secret 3: Adrenaline and Environment Suit. Head back along the sludge
passage and back through the door. Return all the way to where you dropped
through the hole. Continue to the lift and ride it up to the control room.
Collect Shells x2 and the Green Key, then drop back into the pump room.
Exit and make your way back to the previously locked door, which you can now
open. Shoot the Berserker through the next door. Proceed round to the left
to blast the Guard and collect Armor Shard on the right. Retreat from the
deep sludge pool and head right, blasting Guards, Berserker, and Gunner.
Collect Health and head down the slope for the Environment Suit - a Flyer
will burst from the panel above. Shoot it down, then grab Health x2 and
Rocket-jump up onto the ledge to enter its alcove for Secret 4: Health and
Rockets. Drop back down and head up the slope and right to the deep sludge
pool. Cross it (you can dive down for Quad Damage if you really want), then
blast the remaining enemies and head upstairs to the exit.

Waste Disposal Area

Open the door, ready to face a Tank and Berserker. When they're dead, go
down and collect Cells, Bullets, and Health. Drop down below for Rockets and
Health x2, climbing back up the ladder. (For the Mega Health on the crates,
you'll have to Rocket-jump via the single crate.) Head up the slope for
Jacket Armor, killing the Berserker by the pillars. On the left you'll find
Cells x2, Health, and Environment Suit - quickly dive into the sludge pool
on the right, swimming round to the next small pool. Shoot the orange switch
above the bars to open them for Secret 1: Railgun. Quickly swim back and
climb the ladder to get out. Now hit the red button behind the pillars to
create a walkway above the sludge pool. Head over it and through the door.
Through the next door, collect Slugs and shoot the Berserker on the right.
Round the next corner, by the Health, you'll encounter a Gladiator and two
Guards. Once they're dead, continue to the bridge. Jump to the left rock for
Jacket Armor, then back. Collect Slugs and Health before exiting.

The Reactor (2)

Shoot the Gunner just on the left. Collect Health and Cells, the follow the
tunnel to drop down the hole. Shoot the Flyer, then exit through the left
door. Head through the next two doors to reach the floor of the large
chamber. Continue through the next door and round the pillar, through the
next two doors, to the core room. Take the right lift up to find the
formerly jammed door is now open. Kill the Gladiator and two Berserkers,
then enter the room and collect the Health. Enter the large lift on the left
to complete the mission.

Mission 4: Defense Command

Exiting the lift, you'll soon face two Tanks around the large structure. As
before, avoid getting surrounded by them - if you do, leg it past one (you
could go through the door to fire at them from the passage). Round the back
of the large structure you'll find Cells x3, then exit through the door.
Follow the winding passage to the next door. Through it you'll find two
Gunners. Once they're dead, head through the right door (the other's locked)
to a blue corridor.

Through the door, head right for Rockets, Cells, and Health. Deal with the
two patrolling Tanks and Machine Gun Guard - take cover in the first
passage. Head into the left passage and ride the lift up. Kill the two
Gunners, then head left around the ledge to collect Combat Armor and Armor
Shards - note the door with the red lasers. Head round to the opposite
passage and enter the door.

Through the next door is a large chamber: blast the Gunner, then take cover
behind the right computer screens while shooting the Tank. Head through the
left door and follow the passage to a room with two Guards. Blast the side
walls to destroy the computers - you'll find Cells in the left one. Return
along the passage and head right, back the way you came. Round the other
side of the ledge, the red lasers have gone, enabling you to enter the door
leading to the next stage (you'll return here later).

Research Lab

Shoot the prisoner in the first room, then blast the cracked left glass
panel. Kill the prisoner inside, and the Parasite coming from the left. Head
through the small left tunnel to find Secret 1: Body Armor and Grenades x2.
Blast the prisoner behind the glass, then head back to the first room. Grab
Health x2 and hit the computer on the right - be ready for the two Parasites
coming through the door. Once they're dead meat, head into the passage to
kill and Iron Maiden. Reverse towards the Quad Damage, ready to blast the
Parasite who appears from the panel - containing Health.

Grab the Quad Damage and proceed around the passage, killing another Iron
Maiden. The first door's locked, so enter the second one, collecting Health.
Enter the left door and kill two Iron Maidens and a Parasite (watch out
for his laser). For fun, access the computers by the operating tables to
make lasers cut up the bodies. Head through the right door, blasting an Iron
Maiden and prisoner in the passage.

Through the next door, turn right to blast a Tank. Round the corner is
Another Parasite: kill him to collect his Cells. Hit the left computer to
disable Level 1 security, then go right for Health x2, Cells, and
HyperBlaster. Return through the passage to the previous room, then back
into the earlier passage and through the opposite door. Collect Health and
open the next door to shoot a Parasite. Round to the left are two ordinary
Parasites. Head through the next door, collecting Health, and hit the red button
to open the doors. Take the lift (wait till it's raised) down to floor 2.
Through the door, quickly blast another Tank. Collect Health and Shells,
then head left to where the moaning prisoners are. Shoot the Parasite who
appears, then hit the computer to unlock the Maintenance Bridge. Return to
the passage and through the left door, collecting Health. Follow the passage
through another door and shoot the Parasite below, then the one on the right.
Approach the edge to make the bridge appear. Head onto it and turn left to
jump to the ledge with the red button, to get Level 2 clearance. Jump back
and shoot through the opposite bars to the orange switch to open the
observation cell. Continue left and jump left to the next button for Level 3

Head back along the bridge and right to enter the observation cell for
Secret 2: Quad Damage. Cross the bridge and grab Health on the left before
entering the door. Grab Shells and shoot the Parasite in the passage. Collect
Health and Slugs, then open the next door, ready to shoot a Tank on the
right. Collect Cells and hit the left computer to activate the prisoner
disposal tubes. Shoot the two Parasites on the right as you proceed to the next

Follow the passage and hit the red button, then take the lift back up to
floor 1 and the original passage. Take the right door, then the next right
door, and retrace your route to the previous lift, taking it down to floor
2. Follow the passage and open the first door on the right, shooting the
Parasite. Follow the passage to a lift and take it up, ready to shoot a
Parasite. Follow the passage to the repair room and shoot the Parasite. Collect
Commander's Head on the left. Now head back via the lifts to the short
corridor with three doors. Watch out as you enter the middle one - two Iron
Maidens pop up. Continue along the passage to the original room, where a
Tank has appeared. Blast him, then exit through the door, back to Defense

Defense Command (2)

Through the door, proceed around the ledge to the opposite door. Follow the
passage to the circular room and enter the opposite door, collecting Quad
Damage. Head along the passage to the next door. Kill the Gunners round to
either side, collecting Grenades, and then use the Grenade Launcher on the
two Tanks below. Enter the right passage and ride the lift down to the
floor. Collect Cells, Bullets, and Shells before returning up on the lift
and exiting through the right door (don't worry about the secret - you'll be
back here again later).

Gravity Booster

Shoot the Gunner and climb the crates for Combat Armor. There's Health to
the left of the entrance if you need it. Through the sliding door, blast the
Tank on the right, then take care of the Gunner on the left ledge. Take the
lift (to the right of the entrance) up there and grab the Health - at which
point the floor explodes. Shoot the Flyers, then drop back down. You can
jump into the sludge pool for the Adrenaline if you want, climbing out via
the ladder.

Enter the door opposite the entrance (the other's locked). Follow the
passage to the next door and enter it. Grab the Slugs and Grenades, then
step onto the platform to ride it down the slope. Go through the door and
follow the passage.

The next door leads to a large chamber. inhabited by the Guardian. A large
two-legged robot, it's relatively easy to kill: just keep circling behind it
and blasting with the Rocket Launcher.(I've added this in parenthesses as a
easier way: Simply shoot him, wait until he's near you, then pop in and out
firing your Blaster.) When it croaks, it leaves behind the A-M Bomb. Around
the room, you'll find Health x5, Rockets x2, and Combat Armor. Enter the
passage to the right of the entrance door to find a glowing teleporter -
step into it.

Kill the two Gladiators on either side of the large structure, before
heading down either slope. Collect the Health on either side, then take a
lift up and blast a Gladiator. Up the stairs, grab the Rockets and shoot a
Gladiator if he approaches. Once you've placed the bomb in the middle,
quickly enter the glowing teleporter before the core blows. Shoot the two
Gunners, then grab Rockets, Health, and that elusive White Key. Head
upstairs to return to the room with the sludge pool. Go through the right
door, and then exit back to Defense Command.

Defense Command (3)

Head left and take the lift down to the floor. Head left into the passage
and through the door. The blue corridor leads back near the start of the
level: take the second door to another blue corridor. Through the next door,
head left to take the lift up. Turn right into the passage to enter the
door. The next one leads back to the circular room - where a Flying Mutant
bursts through the floor! Take cover behind the computer screens as you
blast it.

Once it's debris, drop into the hole for Shells x2 and Ammo Pack. Exit via
the blue panel, back to the room with three doors. Head left and retrace
your route back to room with the hole. This time, enter the right door
(using the White Key). Follow the corridor to a new room: blast the Guards,
collecting Slugs x2, then destroy the Tank (you can dive into the pool for
Quad Damage if you dare). Take the stairs up either side for Health x2.
Heading toward the exit door, look left to see some cracked glass. Blast it
open and dive into the water for Secret 1: Bullets x2 and Cells x2. Climb
back out and go through the door to find the mission exit - collect Health
before leaving.

Mission Five: Inner Chamber

Collect Health x2, Rockets x2, and another Rocket Launcher. Destroy the
Tanks either side, then head down either staircase. Go up to the door, then
stand well back as lasers destroy it. On the other side are two Gladiators -
use the Grenade Launcher through the doorway. Once they're dead, enter and
collect Health, Combat Armor, Grenades, and Rockets x3 from the alcoves
either side. Around the back is another Tank to bust.

Enter the back passage and collect Health x2, and then hit the button to
take the lift up. Through the door, shoot the Iron Maidens on the other
side, then collect Health x2 and Grenades x2. Hit the buttons at the end of
each narrow bridge. This removes the forcefield from the tube by the
entrance, so you can take its lift up to a large room with Makron at the
end. He disappears as you approach. Step onto each of the floor switches in
turn, avoiding lasers, and then blast the Flyers, which appear.(Don't
bother, as there's at least 1 medkit nearby one of the switches, just grab
it after you hit both.) This eliminates the lasers guarding the buttons on
the far wall. Hit them both, then go up the steps to the teleporter.
Final Showdown


Look behind you for Combat Armor. Head left up the slope for Cells x2.
Follow the passage to a wide corridor with Grenades x4 and Shells x4 (and a
locked door). Return to the start and head up the other slope for Cells x2.
Proceed round to a wide corridor with Bullets x4. Enter the red lift and
ride it up.

There are lots of goodies around the outside of the large chamber, but watch
out - there's also a huge Guardian with a BFG! Obviously, take cover behind
the pillars, popping out to blast him with Rockets etc. If you run out of
ammo, hit the two blue floor switches and head down the slope for lots of
Bullets and Rockets.

(I've done this again to explain an easier method of doing in the first
form: Hit both switch plates and lure the Mech towards you. He will be above
the hole, so simply aim all the way up(hold R1 if you have autocenter on)and
blast him with The Super Shotgun. This won't work on Makron himself, though.
Oh, and if you don't remember to hit BOTH SWITCHPLATES, 9 out of 10 times
you'll get blasted with a BFG.) When the Guardian finally explodes, out pops
Makron himself, ready to blast you with his laser, railgun, and BFG. Keep
your distance and take cover behind the pillar, as before, blasting him with
your best weapons. You'll have to knock him down several times before he
croaks it.

When he does, the place starts rumbling. Head down either lift and round to
the locked door you saw earlier. Go through it and follow the corridor to
another door. Through it, head right through the opening door and hit the
computer to activate the self-destruct mechanism. Now head down the stairs
to find the waiting transport craft. Head right to the console to drive it
out of there.

XII. Secrets and Cheats

Each time you beat Quake 2 in Single Player Mode, A different set of Cheats
is unlocked.

Bronze (Easy)- Unlocks:
Weapon Stay-Weapons Don't Disappear when picked up.
One Shot Kill-Self Explanatory.

Silver (Normal)-Unlocks:
Game Speed-Speed it up or Slows it down
Blast Force-Weapons knock you farther back or not as far.

Gold (Hard)-Unlocks:
All Weapons-Makes MP games even Crazier
Infinite Ammo-Also self-explanatory.

Secrets in the Multiplayer arenas:
First, in Toxic Vats there is a room with a transparent walkway overhead; if
you do some searching through the slime you'll find a pit you can dive into
that has a railgun in it. Next, in Hydrophobia there are two secrets: in a
pool below the lookout point with the rocket launcher there is a secret
panel that has quad damage inside. Also, there is a 'red' corridor in the
level. It's difficult to explain exactly where this is, but here goes: there
is one large room with two pools, then you can go up one of two ramps to
another large room with two pools (one of these pools has the quad damage),
at the far end of this room is the 'red' corridor. Anyway, hidden in the
walls of this corridor is the BFG 10K, just shoot the walls with you blaster
to open it. And last, in the small industrial level (the one I can never
remember!) there is a mega health hidden in a small square, pillar that is
in the vicinity of where you pick up the chaingun, again just shoot the
walls with your blaster to open it up.

XIII. Revision Information

2/21/01 Got concept to write a FAQ. Decided on QUAKE II.

2/22/01 Internet server was down today, so made little headway. Just putting
up basic Information, mostly about Weapons. Preparing to sacrifice many
sheets of Paper for the Walkthrough. Created original title, changing font
to Chiller with above Results.(This was later changed, because it looked
like crap when posted.)

2/23/01 Learned server went up 10 minutes after I left. Damn. Anyway, put up
more TAS, (Thanks and shouts) walkthrough (I've been up all night, send me
your pity later), and battle tactics.

2/26/01 Busy, busy, busy. Played until 1 AM EDT to get the gold cheats.
Revised a few fatal Errors, including Controls and Title (Which looks good on
my Word, but like crap on Sites.)Added FAQ to two more pages, which are
listed below.

3/24/01 Didn't think I needed another update, but that is just what happened
when I checked my email, containing a juicy tidbit I couldn't pass up. Added
the Multiplayer levels secrets, which was the tidbit.

11/23/02 Holy Shit. One more update for this thing... Amazing, considering
I started it when I was 15 and now I'm nearly 17 1/2. :P Anyway, Fixed the
Title again, (Looks MUCH better now, don't you think? :)) made the FAQ easier
to read, and added the Gameshark codes. I might be hacking more for v1.1
in the future, so this might not be the Final Update! ;)

11/24/02 Just a small update. Fixed a few spelling mistakes, and got rid of all
the "Dogs" in the walkthrough, changing them to the proper name, Parasite.

4/19/03  Minor update, spelling corrections, spacing, and FINALLY Rocket Jump
info. Huzzah! This should be the absolute, ultimate final update. Unless I feel
like changing it. Or someone wants to make this a mook. Or something similar.

7/18/04 Minor change in contact info. Sure I could update my other ones as well,
but eh.
