Best and Worst Endings:
For the best ending, shoot off all the panels on the Mothership. For the worst ending, let the Mothership escape without hitting any panels.
Kronn Hunter Mode:
At the beginning of the game, ONLY shoot the first three STAAR team members you see. If you did this right you'll enter Kronn Hunter mode.
In this mode, you are a mercenary from the Kronn hierarchy sent to steralize Area 51 of the Kronn rebels. You will notice that the grenades, bullets, shotgun shells, and machine gun bullets have all taken on a Kronn form. You will also gain 20,000 extra points whenever your score is tallied, and you can shoot STAAR team members with impunity.
It seems only fitting that a secret base contains secret rooms. Here's how to find them:
Level 2: Shoot out all of the upper windows of the far back wall in the Hangar. Another can be found by shooting all the #
DCDC00 barrels when you are the forklift.
Level 4: Shoot every #
DCDC00 box while you're riding on the STAAR jeep
Level 5: Shoot the doorplate of the second door marked General Weatherby as the door is opening.
Level 7: Shoot all the #
DCDC00 barrels at the first area where the four purple zombies are throwing
barrels on the hill.
After the guys drop from the ceiling, you will come to a part where the floor raises up. There are many explosive boxes and barrels sitting around. Shoot all 24 and enter a secret room called "Get a Life." You get one free life and a chance to get your streak up to 100. Shoot at all times, even if the giant alien is not on the screen.
Shoot the first three S.T.A.A.R. team members and nothing else at the beginning of the game. After the first human is shot, you will not be harmed by any gun fire. After the third human is shot, you will transform into an alien in the main hallway of the first level. You will have infravision when playing as an alien, which allows targets to be more visible. The ending sequence will also be different.
Hint: Gun power-up:
You will lose a gun power-up as soon as you shoot one of the other humans. This is because when you lose a life, you lose your gun; and when you shoot a human, you lose a life.
Hint: Baby Aliens:
When you enter the building from the helicopter, shoot the exit sign when you see a purple alien, then shoot the first three lights. This gives you the opportunity to shoot baby aliens before they form.
: Chow Palace
When you get to the point where you fight the two grenade throwing aliens, kill them and the game should give you enough time to destroy everything around them. There are yellow drums and ammo crates at this location. There is a single alien and about fifty power-ups inside
. Chow Palace
Shoot all of the back windows in the warehouse after destroying the helicopter to enter the bonus stage.
Hint: Tank Top:
Shoot the first fifteen windows on the right side of the hanger in wave two, just after you enter. You will need two players to do this, and you must use several views of these windows to hit them all. This entrance leads to a room called Tank Top.
Hint: X Marks The Spot:
Shoot the first ten hanger windows while outside on the tarmac. The first two windows must be shot quickly, in transition, immediately after the game starts. This leads to a room called X Mark The Spot.
Hint: Killing the launching opponents:
Whenever you encounter the types of opponents that launch things at you, shoot at their head. Whatever they are shooting at you will also be hit, as if they were targeted. Just keep aiming at their head and they will eventually be killed. Note: This will only work on one person at a time.
When you are in the warp ahead level, get up to the part where it says "Self Destruct". You will turn, a blue blinking light will appear. Shoot it and you will get a shotgun.
Whenever you receive a shotgun power-up you can simply aim in the area around the target to hit them. You do not have to aim exactly on target.
Hint: Secret rooms:
Enable the "Secret rooms" option. Do any one of the following to enter a room called
, which is filled with power-ups. Chow Palace
