What About Bob? is the fourth level in Marathon 2: Durandal. It is the first level of Volunteers, the second chapter of the game.

Synopsis Edit

You have been teleported here from Charon Doesn't Make Change. The first terminal you come to is a message from Durandal. He tells you that many captured BOBs from the UESC Marathon were aboard the Sfiera, destined for slavery, and that he has been freeing them and offering them with a choice: help him and control their own destiny, or return to the Pfhor's unreliable stasis chambers. Very few are refusing his offer. He then tells you that the BOBs' first attack on the Pfhor Garrison was unsuccessful because the Pfhor flooded the area with lava, and that he has a plan involving their underground geothermal pumping station. He has already dropped you in the complex; you must then go up the stairs and down into the ventilation shaft, which is noted that has a fall only survivable by you. Once you get into the "basement," you will be given further instructions. If you return to the terminal, Durandal tells you that his suspicions were correct, and that Tycho has indeed fallen in with the Pfhor. Tycho sent him a message in a Pfhor terminal, encoded so only one of the Marathon's AIs could decode it; according to Tycho, Leela had been dismantled by the Pfhor, and Durandal tells you that she deserved better. The second terminal is another message from Durandal, with instructions to flood the area with lava. You must destroy two panels in the room, in a specific order so that you are not trapped. The third terminal is another message from Durandal. He explains to you that lava buried the Pfhor's main power station on the planet, and jokes that Hlford will be taking cold showers until it gets fixed. He then tells you that Robert Blake, one of the colonists, needs help clearing out the Pfhor that escaped the lava flood, and sends you to clear out the rest of the level. If you return to the terminal prematurely, Durandal tells you that he has renamed his ship Boomer. Once all the Pfhor on this level are gone, you are teleported to Come and Take your Medicine.

Secrets Edit

  • After hitting the second lava switch, if you turn to the left, there is a passage that opens and runs to an elevator, which will take you out of the rising lava, and to a nice little ammo stash. However, you need to be quick and at full shields to succeed.
