WALKTHROUGH - CHAPTER 06, ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARD

== Tram Station ==

Objective Added:
[ ] Poison the Leviathan

I can dispense the poison through the filtration system of Food Storage. It should kill anything alive inside.

Walk forward and pick up the --CROSS REPORT 1-- database file from the floor then grab the --RANDOM AMMO-- in the sitting area off to the right.

ITEM LIST
[ ] --"Cross Report 1" database file--
[ ] Random Ammo

Move down the hall ahead and enter the restroom off to the right. Walk inside the left stall area and open the --ITEM CHEST-- then take the --RANDOM AMMO-- from the floor. A few Spiders will jump out of the middle toilet and attack. Enter the stall area on the other side and open the --ITEM CHESTS-- then collect the --MEDIUM MED PACK-- from near the stalls.

Exit the restroom then continue down the hall and take the elevator up to the next floor.

== Sapling Room ==

Crush the --ITEM BOX then take the --FORCE ENERGY SCHEMATIC-- from the floor.
Open the next door.

 
   

You see that body up ahead? You can't stomp it... it's Hammond. View Screenshot Walk up to it to engage in a conversation with him. There's some --RANDOM AMMO-- to Hammond's right and an --ITEM BOX-- off to the left. The --HAMMOND'S ALIVE-- database file will play at the end of the conversation then a new objective will be obtained.

Objective Added:

[ ] Destroy the Poison Pods (0/8)

According to Hammond, the necromorphs have transformed some of the crew into these "poison pods" which are contaminating the air. I need to find and destroy them.

Walk around the corner to the left and move into the next room.

== Atmosphere Control ==

 

The --GETTING TO THE LEVIATHAN-- database file will play as Isaac steps into this area. Use the !!SAVE STATION!! in the middle of the room to save your game then open the --ITEM LOCKER--. View Screenshot Make note of the !!STORE!! if you need to drop off any items or buy anything. Open the door on the left side of the room and continue into the room on that side. View Screenshot

== Hallway to West Tower ==

The --TRUST-- database file will be received as Isaac moves through the first corridor. Open the next door.

ITEM LIST
[ ] --"Trust" database file--

The spray that moves out of the pipes in the next room can damage Isaac so time your runs to step down the corridor as the pipes stop spraying - the middle pipe does not spray, so Isaac will be safe in front of it. View Screenshot The first room to the right doesn't contain anything useful, the second room has an !!UPRGRADE BENCH!! inside and the third room is locked. Open the --ITEM CONTAINERS-- on the far left wall then take the lift up to the second floor catwalk in this area. View Screenshot

ITEM LIST
[ ] Item Container
[ ] Item Container

A Slasher will drop form the ceiling onto the catwalk at the top - it's nothing a little Plasma Cutter to the appendages won't solve. Continue into the next room on the other side.

== West Grow Chamber ==

 
   

This room can get pretty violent inside. Slashers and Lurkers will show up as Isaac ventures further into the room. View Screenshot The Slashers can really pile up in this room and they dash frantically with extreme aggression when moving toward Isaac. It is best to stay on the constant move and shoot their legs off while fighting them to keep from getting surrounded. Use the Line Gun in this room for the most part but switch to the Force Gun if the enemies start to pile up. Don't worry about shooting the Lurkers with the Flamethrower, since there are so many Slashers - try to shoot the Lurkers' appendages as they try to attack. There are a few explosive canisters lying around that can be launched at groups of Slasher but with their aggression it can be hard to aim right.

TIP: You can enter the Inner Greenhouse A room on the left side of this area and blast the Slashers from the doorway as they try to enter. The Slashers will start to enter the room from the vents on the ceiling and on the floor. Be sure to shoot the pod to the side early if you do this since killing it will replenish the oxygen on the room.

For item pickups, there are two --RANDOM AMMO-- pickups down the corridor to the left when you first enter and there is an --ITEM CHEST-- and an --ITEM CONTAINER-- on the right side of the room. Enter the room on the back right side of this area. The left door to that room is the only one that is unlocked.

== Inner Greenhouse B ==

Isaac will have to use his oxygen tank to breathe in this room because of the contaminated air from the nearby pod. Find the POD (1/8) in the back of this greenhouse (the bloated hunched creature) and stomp him to death or shoot it twice with the Plasma Cutter to destroy it. View Screenshot The contaminated air from around the area will be sterilized as the room cleans the air and Isaac will be able to breathe again. Remember to always shoot the pods in a contaminated room first even if other enemies are around so you don't have to worry about oxygen.

Stomp the --ITEM BOX-- near the pod. A Dark Slasher will smash through a vent in the back and attack in a few seconds - he'll follow Isaac into the outside area if you happen to leave. A Lurker will appear outside of the greenhouse while leaving. Enter the other greenhouse on the other side of this area.

[ ] Item Box

== Inner Greenhouse A ==

Find the POD (2/8) inside and destroy it. There is some --RANDOM AMMO-- on the floor of this room.

ITEM LIST
[ ] Random Ammo

== West Grow Chamber ==

When Isaac steps back outside, a Pregnant be staring at him from the corridor ahead. Shoot at his top appendages as he runs and you'll be able to kill him before he reaches Isaac. Find the elevator in the middle of this area. There is a --LARGE MED PACK-- below the door that holds the containers for the feeding system in the back of the elevator.

 

To get the large med pack, interact with the controls for the feeding system View Screenshot near the elevator then shoot the feeding container with stasis as the door opens and it moves out of the floor. Quickly run to the other side of the elevator shaft and look down toward the feeding containers and find the Large Med Pack then grapple it with kinesis and collect it! The door for the containers in the floor must still be opened in order to collect the med pack. Take the elevator up to the third floor.

ITEM LIST
[ ] Large Med Pack

== West Grow Chamber 3F ==

Smash the three --ITEM BOXES-- on this floor then take the --RUBY SEMICONDUCTOR-- from the floor on the opposite side. Take the elevator back down to the second floor.

Pick up the --RANDOM CREDITS-- from the nearby catwalk floor then enter the Hydroponics Controls on the opposite side of the area. If you look off to the left before entering the Hydroponics Controls area, you can see an item shining on the left side of the railing of the walkway across from Isaac. View Screenshot Grapple it with kinesis and bring it toward Isaac then pick up these --2300 CREDITS--.

ITEM LIST
[ ] Random Credits
[ ] 2300 Credits



== Hydroponics Controls ==

Open the nearby --ITEM LOCKER--. What's all this crap about becoming whole? My Isaac only mutilates! You see all the dead bodies in this room? Smash them. Run over to each one and tear them apart with stomps. Find the POD (3/8) on the other side of the room then stomp it as well.

ITEM LIST
[ ] Item Locker

Two Infectors will attack afterwards View Screenshot but if you followed my advice then they won't have any bodies to change into Dark Slashers, so take out a weapon and punish them for their attempts at creating an army of necromorphs. Leave this room then enter the room on the opposite side of the catwalk.

== Hallway to Refrigeration West ==

Turn to the right and open the --ITEM CHEST-- in this corridor then save your game at the !!SAVE STATION!! to the left. Enter the next room.

ITEM LIST
[ ] Item Chest

 

Right when Isaac steps into the next hall, a new enemy will move toward him from off to the right. This is the Exploder. View Screenshot Aim for its glowing yellow arm and shoot it a few times to make the arm explode along with it. Both the Pulse Rifle and the Plasma Cutter work well for these enemies. Their other appendages can be shot also but there is really no need to defeat them this way. The yellow arm can also be cut off with a shot to where it will fall to the floor - this can be useful for when you fight these in groups with other enemies. Isaac can actually grapple the arm with kinesis and shoot it much like an explosive canister.

More Exploders will appear in the room, so don't move forward that much until they stop coming - you have to move forward a bit to make some of the later Exploders attack though. These enemies look so easy, don't they? Haha, wait until they start showing up with other enemies then come back at me with your answer to that question. The Exploders attack by slapping Isaac with their glowing appendages to create an explosion that will kill them and damage Isaac pretty badly, so just imagine fighting them in an intense group of Slashers, Stingers or Lurkers. Shooting off their leg and right arm to stop them will become important later mainly for when they get too close to Isaac. They use both their right leg and right arm to support them while they move, so both have to be shot off in order to stop them.

Run to the other end and step into the next room.

== Refrigeration West ==

There is a stasis recharger to the right and two --ITEM LOCKERS-- directly ahead. The area surrounded in mist up ahead is without gravity. Step inside the zero gravity area and grapple the --ITEM BOX-- suspended in the air then pull it down and break it. View Screenshot

Look up at the ceiling. The spikes in any of the zero gravity area cannot kill Isaac since he can't jump into them so don't ever worry about them. Find the ceiling door with the glowing kinesis symbol then grapple it and pull it to the side to open it. View Screenshot Don't jump toward it just yet - take out the Flamethrower and use flame bursts to heat up the Lurkers that move through the doorway.

Jump through the doorway on the ceiling. Look around the next room and find the next door with a glowing kinesis symbol on it. View Screenshot Grapple the door then move it to the side in order to open it then leap through it.

A single Lurker will attack in the next portion of the room, so flame him with long range flame bursts. View Screenshot Find the alcove with the explosive canister on the wall then jump into the alcove. If you can't line up perfectly with it then jump to the wall below it and run up the wall toward it since the area is sloped - like you're running uphill. Enter the next room through the door and open the next door in the hall ahead.

== Air Filtration Room ==

 

Isaac will enter an air filtration room with flames shooting below him. View Screenshot There is an --ITEM CHEST-- off to the right as Isaac enters. Move up the stairs to the left and pick up the --RANDOM AMMO-- on the catwalk. Walk to the elevator on the right side of the room and pick up the --CROSS REPORT 2-- database file along the way. Take the elevator to the bottom floor.

There is a stasis recharger on the wall near some explosive canisters and some --RANDOM AMMO-- lying among the explosive canisters. Be sure to recharge your stasis before you enter the area ahead. View Screenshot

ITEM LIST
[ ] Random Ammo

Punch the purple fuse box to the right of the door along the right side of the wall to open the door that leads to the room with the first flame. View Screenshot Yeah, you have to run through all these flames, but it's not as bad as you think. The fuse box for the next door across from the current door can be seen. I'd shoot the next fuse box if I were you, so you don't have to wait for it to open. If you look through the closing metal blinds on the wall directly across from the first door, you can see the third fuse box as well, so shoot it. Now all of the doors in the flame rooms are open except for the fourth door.

Speaking of the metal blinds, watch them for a few seconds and notice how they close seconds before the flames shoot. You can watch these to tell when a flame is about to shoot from the wall to the right. In order to get through this area easily, look toward the wall where the flame shoots from then shoot the wall with stasis and this will slow down the flaming process big time. Peak into each room and shoot the flaming mechanism then run to the next flame room and do the same thing until Isaac reaches the other side. There are only three flame rooms.

 
   

You'll have to hit the fuse box in the third flame room to open the final door. A Slasher will attack directly after the door is open, so have a Pulse Rifle ready to tear right through him, or just shoot his legs with the Plasma Cutter. Enter the room and blast the POD (4/8) to the left. View Screenshot Find the elevator on the right side of the area and take it up to the top floor.

Walk to the right and open the --ITEM CHEST-- and smash the --ITEM BOX--. Move up the stairs and enter the control room then snatch the --MEDIUM MED PACK-- and --POWER NODE-- and then open the --ITEM LOCKER--. Exit the control room then run past the elevator View Screenshot and open the door around the corner to the left up ahead then step inside the elevator and take it down to the floor below.

== West Grow Chamber 1F ==

Now you're back in the West Grow Chamber. Two Lurkers and a Pregnant will attack Isaac. Use the Force Gun to defeat all of them. Aim upwards while shooting the Pregnant in order to hit his top appendages. If you hit his chest then just shoot a force grenade to get rid of the Spiders. Wait for the Lurkers to show their appendages and then shoot them from up close with a Force Gun blast or you can still use the Flamethrower or Plasma Cutter. Exit this room via the door on the left side that leads to the hallway outside of this area.

== Hallway to West Tower ==

The vents on the right wall will bust open but nothing is going to eat you up from inside the wall... this time. Take the elevator down and maneuver through the spray below then get back to the Atmosphere Control room.

== Atmosphere Control ==

Save your game. Did I even need to say that? Hopefully not. Now it is time to take on the east side, so open the door on the other side and step through. View Screenshot

== Hallway to East Tower ==

Pick up the --CORRUPTION-- database file from the small corridor.

ITEM LIST
[ ] --"Corruption" database file--

 

Now, I'm going to prepare you for this, so you can get the best of a certain little ass behind the next door. There is a Spawner on the wall directly across from the next door. View Screenshot When the door opens, run directly toward him with the Force Gun equipped and spam him with force grenades (both sides of him) until he starts to yell in pain during his dying animation. You have to be quick or he will start shooting many pods in front of him. He will likely shoot a few pods, but hammer him down with grenades and he won't last long.
You can shoot him with stasis to keep him from shooting pods when Isaac first enters the room if you want.

Check out the rooms on the right side of this corridor. The first room has an !!UPGRADGE BENCH!! inside. View Screenshot Be sure to arm your Force Gun then blast the Slasher as the second door is opened then open the --ITEM CHEST-- and take the --RANDOM AMMO-- from inside.

All is quiet for the moment. When Isaac moves ahead a Brute will attack from the back of this area. View Screenshot Work him into an open area - don't fight him in a tight corridor. Shoot him with stasis then get behind him and blast at his appendages with the Contact Beam or any other weapon. He shouldn't last long at all if you use the Contact Beam. The Brute will leave behind a --POWER NODE-- once he is defeated. Search the room over for the --ITEM CONTAINERS-- along the surrounding walls and the --ITEM BOXES-- in the right hallway.

Quickly jump to the wall up ahead that was previously electrified then turn to the right and jump through the opening in the wall. Two Lurkers will attack in this next area, so take out the Flamethrower and find them then roast them with secondary fire.

 
   

Jump to the wall that is closest to the opening that you just jumped through then turn off the generator by using the controls next to the opening. Jump to the overhead ceiling then leap through the nearby opening. Two Lurkers will attack while a pod contaminates the air in this room.

Objective Added:

[ ] Recycle the Atmosphere

Once the poison pods are all destroyed, I can return to Atmosphere Control and recycle the air. That will unlock Food Storage, where the Leviathan is holed up.

Return to the beginning of this area and exit the room.

Three very irritated Slashers will rush Isaac from the opposite side of the outside catwalk, so take out a weapon and prepare to shoot them as they run toward him. If they start to get too close then use the Line Gun - these WILL follow Isaac back into the East Grow Chamber, so don't try to run away when they get close to the door, unless the door seals off.

== Food Storage ==

If you stand in front of the entrance and look around the room then you can use kinesis to grapple a few --RANDOM AMMO-- pickups and a --LARGE MEDPACK-- right off the bat. Other random items will appear during the actual boss fight in this room. The ammo pickups will differ depending on the weapons that you currently have, much like other pickups. Items will appear randomly hroughout
this room during the boss fight, so grab them whenever Isaac passes by one. You might want to run and press X just in case you move by any pickups during the battle - kind of like some of us used to do in the old survival horror days when items were near invisible in the prerendered backgrounds.

Boss: Leviathan

Recommended Weapons:
Plasma Cutter
Pulse Rifle
Contact Beam

 
   

Leviathan looks rather intimidating at first glance since he basically comprises the entire back portion of the wall but he shall feel Isaac's wrath just like all his other necromorph squad. This boss fight takes place in zero gravity and the room is circular so there is no limit to where Isaac can move when he moves sideways.View Screenshot

The Leviathan has three tentacles that it will stretch out and attack with. It only has one attack with the tentacle and it will always give off a sign before it attacks. Whenever the bottom tentacle faces pward and begins to shake, this is a sign that he is about to perform a ground smash. Simply run to
either side whenever you see the tentacle shake and this will be avoided - it's best to already be running before the tentacle prepares to attack or you might get hit sometimes. Make sure to keep running until the tentacle retracts or it can hit Isaac while it rises. You can also perform a zero-g jump to any section of the area as the tentacle shakes to get away from the attack as well, but running is much easier. It is best to completely circle the room by running sideways throughout this battle except for when you have to attack of course.

When the tentacle retracts from attacking, a glowing yellow section of the tentacle will appear. Wait for the tentacle to move back toward the wall and it will stick in place to where the yellow portion can be easily shot. Shoot the yellow portion of the tentacle with either the Plasma Cutter, Pulse Rifle or Contact Beam to cut off the tentacle. The Leviathan will begin to attack with its other tentacles after the first one is cut off. It will use the same attack with each tentacle once again so dodge the ground smash then shoot off the rest of the tentacles. The attacking tentacle will always move to the bottom middle portion of the wall.

Once all tentacles have been removed the Leviathan will open up its middle mouth and begin to fire out acid pods. The pods will explode upon contact and knock Isaac down. Wait for each pod to shoot from his mouth then aim at the pod and grapple it with kinesis then wait for the next pod to fire and fire the current pod back at the Leviathan to destroy the next pod. It will fire out a total of five pods per projectile attack, so if you can grapple the first and third pod then shoot them back then you can grapple the fifth pod and fire it back at the Leviathan's weak spot.

The Leviathan will reveal its weak spot showcased as a yellow section in the back of its mouth right after shooting the fifth pod, so hold the fifth pod in place and aim for the Leviathan's weak spot inside of its mouth then fire the pod at it. If you miss with the pod then quickly shoot the yellow portion of its mouth with weapon fire - you only have a brief second to do so. Manage to hit it with a charged Contact Beam primary fire and this will severely hurt the Leviathan.

It will play a game of "catch the acid pod" with Isaac a few times, depending on how you damage it, then it will regrow its tentacles. Once the tentacles have regrown, it will go back to the same basic tentacle attacks, but it will sometimes shoot a set of acid pods instead. Watch for either a tentacle to shake or the mouth to open to know which attack it is about to perform. This part can get slightly tense at times but watch the Leviathan carefully and you'll be able to react to its attacks. Shoot off the tentacles like you normally would after each of its tentacle attacks and this will cause it to eventually shoot pods again.

The main hard part about this fight is sustaining enough ammo to fight off the tentacles and damage the Leviathan. Try not to waste ammo. If you are a good shot with the Contact Beam or shooting its pods back at it's weak spot then that by itself will help out tons since both methods are so damaging. There are explosive canisters floating around this room that can help out for the tentacles (grapple with kinesis then toss) but these don't help that much with shooting the mouth, unless you're really quick. The acid pods can easily get the best of Isaac once one of them hits him since the Leviathan will continue to shoot them even while Isaac is getting up. Remember that you can shoot the pods and run to the side to avoid them. It's always best to grapple them if possible however.

TIP: You don't actually have to shoot the tentacles off of the Leviathan when it reforms them. You could dodge the tentacles and wait for the Leviathan to shoot acid pods. The only bad part about doing this is that the acid pods might accidentally explode on the Leviathan's tentacles and mess up your kinesis grapple timing. View Screenshot

Finally, the ship seems stable. I've bought us some time, hopefully enough to find the SOS Beacon. But even if we send out a distress signal, is anyone close enough to this system to hear it...?

Well, we certainly got to the ROOT of that problem as Mr. Redfield might say. Yuck, yuck, yuck! Now, let us exit the room and get back to the tram. Before you leave the Food Storage, be sure to look it over for any remaining items - look for a flashing light to signify the items then simply grapple them with kinesis and collect them.

== Food Storage Hallway ==

Reenter the Atmosphere Control.

== Atmosphere Control ==

Be sure to stop by the Store and put some of your extra items in the safe. Isaac most likely has a full load. It's not good to be a packrat with your main inventory. Reenter the Sapling Room.

== Sapling Room ==

Run to the end and take the elevator back down to the Tram Station.

== Tram Station ==

Board the tram then take it to the next area to end this chapter.
