My Life For a Sword

You've made it into Camelot, and now you must search for Excalibur. You cannot actually get the sword in this level. In order to exit this level, you simply need to discover its location.
  • Starting in the West Courtyard, shoot the archers and then enter the castle
  • After following a few corridors, you'll end up at a big door (not the smaller door which leads to the room with the waterfall)
  • A knight will be waiting to ambush you there, so after you take care of him, go up the staircase (another knight and archer wait along the staircase for another ambush, so sniper them from below)
  • Keep moving until you reach the window lit room (another ambush awaits you there)
  • You can take the stairs to the left (to the Bath) or straight ahead (to the Chapel), so go to the Chapel first
  • At the back of the chapel is a secret door, behind which is a save term, info term, and 2x recharge
  • Now go back to the bath for the other info term
  • Now head back down the stairs to the big door and go through it
  • Make a u-turn to the right and go through another big door (be prepared as the door shuts behind you leaving you in a fight with two major black knights)
  • The dodge and run method works really well against the knights (better to kill them now then wait until the blonde archers join in)
  • Past the knights is a door on the right, go in that room and flip the switch
  • Continue down the hall, then turn left, opening two gates to the throne room
  • Sniper the archers, dodge and run the rest, and after clearing the throne room, go to the back to drink the 2x potion
  • On the back of the two pillars near you is a switch and terminal, flip the switch and at least walk to the terminal (a poly you walk on triggers the door to the throne bath to open)
  • Jump into the throne bathroom, flip the switch, and then jump on the platform you just activated along that same wall (but on the other side of the entrance)
  • Be sure to exit the platform into the upper alcove as soon as you can to avoid being squished, fight the sorcerer and archer, grab the magic staff, flip the switch in the little room, then leave
  • Now go back through the double doors, down the corridors to where the first two knights attacked you
  • In one of the knight alcoves a secret door is now open which leads out to a small rampart overlooking the enchanted lake
  • Go there and look at Excalibur, then head back to the throne room
  • At the end of the throne room is an exit that you can drop down through, and directly to the right is the way back out of the castle
  • Run back to the water in the courtyard to teleport to the next level

Eye Candy / Extras

  • After climbing the stairs, but before the bath/chapel area, there are doors leading to a caged raptor (you can kill him, or break the bars to free him)
  • In the u-turn between the two big doors, there is a larger door across from them both which you can open via the switch on the left, out to the South Gate, grab a bunch of arrows, then run around to the side where you'll find a pod to teleport you the guard tower overlooking the West Courtyard (more ammo in the tower)
  • From the stairs leading down to the main bath room, leap to the right into the bathtub and you'll be teleported directly out to the South Gate area
  • At the end of the 2nd corridor after entering the castle, after the torch columns, go through the door to the waterfall area, drop in, open a secret door which leads to another secret door, that leads to a secret crypt, which has a secret shelf where a 3x potion can be found (use another secret door on the side to exit the area)
  • After passing the 2 knight ambush, go down one of the short side corridors where the archers ambush you, break the barrels, flip the switch to the door, and climb through the cave area (this can be used as another way back out after seeing Excalibur)
  • In the throne bathroom, jump into the water outlet and let yourself be taken downstream, and when you see a glowing wall, open that secret door and teleport to a secret altar area (big battle, lots of ammo)
  • Same thing, jump in the water tunnel, but skip the secret door and let yourself be taken to the waterfall which drops you right into the pool that you started in (but another way back out)
