I enabled the efr staging process and i seem to be stuck on the lower level down the ladder. I can see a rotating catwalk above me. This is in alpha lab - sector 4. Anyone know how to move past this area?

Should've done extend bridge/whatever. With EFR, you have to platform jump.

Its too far a jump, die everytime. Must be another way.

Yea I thought ti was too far also.. and I died everytime, but after about an hour of just jumping, I finally got to the other door. I would recommend you just noclip and fly over there :) jumping is a waste of time

The efr is easy to jump through, if you press the shift key. I was afraid to extend the service ladders because of what the sarge said :(

Ha, thanks! That did the trick, very easy jump with sprint. I'd played all the way up till this point without realizing the marine could run (sprint). Not that I plan on "rushing" around much even now, unless i'm running away from baddies, lol.

Yeah I did the same thing, I swearing trying to figure out how the hell I was supposed to jump that. Then I remembered theres a sprint button. Ever since that level, I used sprint everwhere I could :D

Yeah I called this the Lara croft area, lots O jumping. When you are jumping off that service bridge that rotates there is one jump you will not clear unless you back all the way up into the center/axis. You have to step up, then turn to face your sprint/jump objective.

I stood on the railing on the rotating bridge to get to the last area. Couldnt do it any other way.

You couldn't :D I did. Just started dead center and sprinted, np. Before that was reload x Pi. I actually liked all the timed jumping that follows as the game goes on, there is quite a bit. Also having to look for unique ways to escape areas. That's part of what started getting me back into it.

ugh.. don't tell me there's more jumping involved.. i hate jump tricks..

I just extended the service bridge, and shot whatever came out.. not really bad at all.. Sarge must be a wuss.. ;)

Hmm. I extended the service bridge too. I almost want to go back and do it the other way. It sounds more fun.

If you ever played the old Drakan Order of the Flame game you learn some pretty good jumping/timing skills. I like all that stuff. I need pauses in blowing up the baddies.

I reloaded it and did it again>

The first jump is from the distant door to where I am standing.

Here's the platform on top of the post which the rotating service bridge is attached. I held shift and sprinted when it aligned. Note the image is brightened and compressed so you can see. That's why it looks poor:

Much more jumping and crouching to come. I stopped on the monorail ride last night.

How the heck you got that much rocket ammo in alpha labs? I have about that much and Im down in Delta and I look everywhere for ammo and stuff. You playing veteran or marine difficulty?
