Six Thousand Feet Under is the thirteenth level in Marathon 2: Durandal. It is the fourth and final level of Citadel, the fourth chapter of the game.


You have been teleported here from Bob's Big Date. The first terminal is a message from the S'pht Olders, who have united and released the S'ct'lac'tr inside the Citadel to destroy the Pfhor upon their entry.

The second terminal is a corrupted message from Durandal. The Pfhor have defeated him, and he is going to try to land his crippled ship on Lh'owon's second moon, Y'loa. He tells you that you are too deep to be teleported out when you're done, but a S'pht terminal may help to amplify the signal. He then ends his message, telling you the answer is there somewhere.

The third terminal is another message from the S'pht. S'pht'Lhar was defeated the day before and tens of thousands of prisoners were captured and enslaved.

The fourth terminal is a S'pht terminal again, about the W'rkncacnter, Yrro, and Pthia.

The next terminal is another message from the S'pht, who say that the Olders have disclosed the final message of the S'pht'Kr, but have no time to decipher it.

The last terminal is from Durandal; he tells you that you have the answer, but that he may be destroyed before anything can be done. He also tells you that the Pfhor want to capture the Boomer intact so they can study his improvements, and that the Pfhor Naval Academy will be teaching of The Humbling of Battle Group Seven at Lh'owon rather than The Third Battle for Beta Tear as one of the Seven Great Battles. From there, you are teleported to If I Had a Rocket Launcher, I'd Make Somebody Pay.

The basic goal of this level is to find a pair of S'pht terminals, one is in a room with a switch which controls the level of the lava in the room at the top of the level, located by the grid like formations visible on the map at either end. In order to find this terminal the player must first find a staircase with a gap in it where lava flows underneath, if you look to your left you will see a narrow ledge, travel along this until you find a jump, leading to a opening in the way.

Once the lava has been lowered, another switch will become accessible that lowers the lava level on some platforms, reachable by taking the route marked with the large red arrow and line on the map. This will allow the player to reach a grid-like cyborg infested area, which in turn leads you to the second S'pht terminal.
