[Episode 3] The Terminus
After hitching a ride on the subway train, Acarno arrives at the Terminus, allowing him to disembark and see if he can find the elusive “Underground Space”.
You must find the Red Key Card in order to access the first of 3 card-locked doors in the Underground Space and locate a target for the Plasma Bomb to be detonated.
Upon arrival, turn on the GRAVITY CONTROLLER. First there are a few items to collect (note that the items on the train from the previous section can no longer be collected);
Drop out of the alcove and head left towards the opposite end of the room and you will see a second yellow alcove. As it’s not reachable via a jump, first of all equip the SHOCK ABSORBER BOOTS and then set a TIME BOMB below the alcove and then stand on top of it. As the bomb explodes, jump and you should get enough height to make it into the second alcove.
Drop out of the alcove and proceed to the corner of the room diagonally opposite to the one you’re in. Spot the bright looking square door on the opposite wall at ground level. Head over to it and take the doors out with your HAND BAZOOKA.
Access the bright yellow control panel that has been revealed and then head through the newly-opened gate. In the next room, there are a few items to collect after Snooper’s brief interruption;
Jump on top of the rusty looking crates that are stacked on top of each other. Place a TIME BOMB on the crates and jump off, revealing the entrance to a third cabin once the crates have exploded – head inside for more items.
Now that you’ve collected all the items, head to the corner of the room behind the vehicle and you will find some stairs to descend.
You will emerge on a silver staircase with blue guard rail. Look over the left hand side you will spot another yellow alcove on the wall. Jump over the guard rail and float down either onto the grey pipe or into the alcove itself to pickup a FREEZE PACK.
With the SHOCK ABSORBER BOOTS equipped, drop out of the alcove onto the pipe below, and then only the circular grey walkway below. Equip the SPIKED BOOTS. Facing the water in the middle of the room, head left around the walkway until you are stood underneath another overhead pipe. Jump up onto the pipe.
Next, head over to the foot of the silver stairs that you entered the room on. Take the stairs until you are roughly halfway up and you will notice another overhead pipe. Follow the steps below to get onto the pipe;
Equip the WET SUIT and drop into the water below. Head towards the into the water beneath the pipe you are stood on. Exit the water using the silver stepladder and head left around the walkway and you will notice three similar looking doors that differ only in colour. You’ll need to fully explore the area behind each door in order to progress, starting with the red door.
