Written by that loser InfernalColonel. This guide is for the unlockable mission “Storm the Mother Ship” In Metal Slug 3.Now for all four of you who have beaten this game, this is a mission based on the last part of Mission 5. There are some key differences though, you only have one life, chunks of the mission were taken out, and you don’t play as the normal four characters. This is a difficult mission. So you will have to rely on the soldiers you rescue to protect you (and take a few deaths for you.) So hopefully with my guide you might be able to get some help. =========================================================== 3. Controls ======================================================================= x= shoot A= Jump B= Call for Allen ============================================ 4. Story Now to have unlocked this mission, you would have had to beaten the game. So you will know the story then. But, basically the mission is about you rescuing General Morden. Along the lines you will also encounter Rootmarks. But, it will only be the first battle. ============================================ 5. Characters Normal: This guy is not bad. His grenades are good for taking out near by red eyes (because it doesn’t flow in a straight line) He doesn’t have a melee attack. Bazooka: This guy is my favorite. He can duck down and shoot Red Eyes easily, and his bullets are very powerful. The only down side is he doesn’t have a melee attack. Shield: This guy is my least favorite. His shield blocks some but not much. Also, his bullets are slow and weak. He does have a melee attack but when spiders come rushing near you, don’t expect to just slash away because it is VERY slow. ============================================ 6. Enemies -Red Eyes: These are just your standard enemy robots that you will encounter about 2/3 through the mission -Giant Red Eyes: You will encounter these soon after you go through a little over a dozen small robots. -Alien Robots: These are you’re not so standard robots that will take only two shots from your Bazooka or Grenade guy. This however will take about five shots from your Shield guy (though less if you have soldiers also attacking it.) You will only encounter about seven of these during your mission. - Partner Clones: These are obviously clones of your partner and are easy to take down with all characters. One shot for Grenade or Bazooka and about three for Shield. - Aliens: These are just the normal aliens that you will first fight. They are no hassle but don’t stay to close to them for long. - Rootmarks: This is you one and only boss, the alien leader… ============================================ 7. Walkthrough ============================================ Begin! The first thing you will want to do is to kill the aliens. Now stop after you kill them. Shoot above at the globes and a soldier will drop. Continue and you will encounter an Alien Robot. If you Bazooka or Grenade just throw grenades and it will kill it, but if you’re a Shield stay back to the left corner and fire away because if he fires then one of your soldiers will take the hit. Now stop. Fire above at the second globe when you’re directly below it, a soldier will appear. Now move a little to the left of the same globe and also fire and another soldier will drop. This is the last of the globes with soldiers in it for this section. Now continue right and fire to the right because another alien robot will appear. Now got to the left corner and start firing because another alien robot will appear. A soldier will drop down at the left corner after defeating the alien robot free him and continue. There will be four aliens here so just fire away. Now four more aliens will drop down shoot the two middle ones and it will kill three of them. Either you or you soldiers will take out the other one. Now go to the right corner at the edge of the screen and fire to the left. Aliens will drop down but they won’t hit you with close range attacks if you are over there. Except for the four ones that drop down but you can kill the one nearest to you before he fires. Now an alien robot will appear to the right of you, so run in the middle and fire to the LEFT! Your soldiers will take care of the one to the right but you can quickly take care of the one that appears to the left. Two more robots on each side will appear so finish them and continue to the right. Another alien robot will appear so fire to the right and wait until to soldiers drop down. Continue and two aliens will drop down near where you encountered the robot. Kill them and shoot the door open. When you’re near the opened door two aliens will drop down. Kill them if you want or just continue through the door. After you enter the door, just shoot directly above you at the globe and a soldier will appear. There are about four globes you can shoot to get soldiers down they will stop when you encounter the first Giant Red Eye. Also, if you shoot and no soldier comes out then one of your soldiers might have hit it, but the soldier will still be down. As for the red eyes, try to shoot the one’s on top or the ones below if you grenade or bazooka. As for shield only slash them if maybe two are right near each other near you. You should probably jump over them (not on them or through them) and keep running so they won’t kill you in the explosion. Or for those of you who don’t like that stand there and jump a split second before they explode. Now if you’re crowded by them use Allen. He will shoot them and you won’t be harmed while saluting him. But, remember you have limited quantities of him. But, if you run out you can still bow to avoid damage but he won’t come. Now continue on with this strategy and you will encounter your first Giant Red Eye. Your soldiers will kill him easily but you can help them if you want points, just stay clear of when his torso falls. Continue on using my strategy and you will encounter another Giant Red Eye. Same Strategy. Now, don’t get to cozy because another one is near so do the same thing. After beating them go and you will encounter a ramp that lead you to Rootmarks in level 5. This is hard so what you want to do is jump over the red eyes and keep running because hopefully they won’t get you. The problem with using Allen in this part is more red eyes will crowd you after he leaves and you will have to wait about two seconds before you can use him again (they will explode in that time) Now the door has already been destroyed so continue. You won’t face Rootmarks yet but your partner clones. Fire Away!!! Now just stay back and keep shooting until they all die. But, if one get near you and you’re not a shield run. Now if you’re crowded call Allen or just salute. Beat these guys and break through the door. You will see your partner! If you’re Bazooka just stay where you start and the glass will break soon enough. Now same goes for shield and if the clones get near you just slash. So if you’re a grenade stay close and throw grenades (your soldiers will do most of the work.) Your partner will lead you. Now you’ve reached Rootmarks. Your soldiers can’t help you here. Go to the far right corner and jump and fire. He will fire a small energy ball. Just jump over it when it’s near. Now go to the middle and fire away. He will make a huge energy ball and throw it down. Stay near the middle and avoid it then go directly beside the ball and fire away. He will die before he fires the next one if your bazooka or grenade. But, if you Shield continue this strategy. After defeating him, you will be in the torture room. Shoot the aliens to the right and another one will jump near you, kill him. Kill the alien near the control panel and finally kill the controls. You have saved General Morden.
