[Episode 3] The Silver Door

[Episode 3] The Silver Door

Summary

After failing to find the right location to detonate the Plasma Bomb in the previously explored room (behind the key card locked Red Door), Acarno must now explore the second of three card locked doors – this time silver.

Progress through this section to find another key card that allows you to access the third and final door, which is gold.

Emerge in a familiar looking bridge encased in glass. Equip the BIG MAGNUM and head through the opening on the other side of the bridge. Following another brief interaction with Snooper, two more robots identical to the one encountered previously (behind the red door) will appear – kill them in the same way by running out of their sight until they turn to guard the entrance to the room. This will allow you to approach the robots at a safe enough distance to shoot without them even reacting – four shots per robot is enough to take them out. Collect any items dropped by the robots and put your weapon away before locating the crate closest to the entrance of the room.

Item; Jump on top of the red crate closest to the entrance of the room to pick up an INSTANT PLATE.
Item; There is a second INSTANT PLATE on top of the red crate next to the small crane.
Item; There is a third INSTANT PLATE on the floor between the two red crates at the opposite side of the room to the entrance.

You now need to get onto the large structure in the middle of the room. Equip the SHOCK ABSORBER boots and follow the instructions below;

Where to jump from; Jump on top of the crate closest to the central structure - this is found where you previously picked up the third INSTANT PLATE just now.
Item; Head towards the opposite second of the central structure and pick up the FREEZE PACK.
Jumping from the central structure; Standing in the middle of the central structure you will see a platform which can be jumped to. You will need to jump and grab the platform before pulling yourself up. If you are struggling with the distance of the jump, use an INSTANT PLATE to advance across.
Item; Once on top of the platform, jump onto and head up the slope in front of you. At the top you will notice a smaller platform protruding below. Drop down and pick up the SWITCH BOMB.
Control panel; Interact with the control panel.

Interacting with the control panel will cause part of the platform to fall to the floor. Ensuring the SHOCK ABSORBER boots are equipped and jump off the small platform onto the floor. Approach and jump onto the part of the platform that just fell to the ground to collect an item.

Item; The GOLD KEY CARD is now accessible.

Return to the top of the red crate you originally used to jump onto the central structure. Jump across and set an explosive on top destroying the end of the structure.

Item; Once the end of the structure has been blown up, you can pick up the MAGAZINE CARTRIDGE on top of the second pillar.

Make your way towards the entrance of the room and face the short end of the central structure.

Aim; Equip the HAND BAZOOKA and aim for this spot.
Item; Jump on top of the first pillar and pick up the DIAMOND.
Item; Jump towards the large red light ahead and collect 2 GRENADES.

Exit the room the same way you came in and once again emerge in the glass tube bridge. Before exiting, there is some more items to collect;

Aim; Equip the HAND BAZOOKA and shoot at the glass in the middle segment of the bridge, allowing you to drop into the water below.
Item; Collect 50 CREDITS in the water.
Item; Also in the water is 3 GEO STONES.
Item; Return to the surface of the water and use the HOOK SHOT to get back up to the glass tube bridge - you want to be on the side through which you first entered this area via the Silver Door.
Item; On top of the glass tube is an EMERGENCY SPRAY. Simply jump out of the open end of the bridge and pull yourself up. Drop down inside the bridge you're currently stood on and leave the room using the doorway.

Once again you will find yourself in the room with the coloured doors – head over to the gold door.

The gold door; Use the GOLD KEY CARD.
