This page of the Oddworld Soulstorm guide has the third part of the walkthrough for mission 9 - Slig Barracks. Our walkthrough tells you how to keep Abe alive while traveling by elevator, how to use the mobile platform's turret, and how to reach the communication tower.
Additional note: The green color in this walkthrough stands for secrets and unique locations/activities associated with the badges (challenges) in the game. Mission 9 badges were described on a separate page of the guide.
Take the elevator up to the Comms Tower
You should use the elevator / mobile platform only after rescuing Mudokons from the main part of the Furnace location, that is after they have been transported to the bird portal in Barracks.
In the Furnace, you will find the platform shown in the picture. You can activate it and take control of the Supply Delivery Cannon.
During the ride, you have to kill the Sligs attacking the platform. Wait until the sight changes its color to red and locks on the enemy, and then fire a single shot – this is enough to kill a Slig.
The elevator will stop halfway – use that to explore the area on the right. There you will find the last 5 Mudokons (they are partially obscured by sandbags), as well as boxes with loot and new crafting materials (Lighter and Gum used to make the Brewnade incendiary grenade and the improved Sticky Fizzy Pow explosive). There is also a recycling station and vending machines with Fizzy Pop and Blastos.
Go with Mudokons to the lower level, i.e. first to the main part of the Furnace and then to the Barracks where they can be safely sent back. We do not advise going with them further up, because they can very easily die in the next battle. Our method is more time-consuming, but 100% safe.
Move the platform further up only after you have saved 100% of the Mudokons from this mission. The second battle is more difficult because you can get shot by the Sligs in the background – the areas from which they attack are marked in the above picture. You need to aim at them quickly and kill with single shots. You should deal in the same way with the flying Sligs.
Reach the Comms Tower
At the end of the ride, you pass the familiar bird portal and use the passage. There is a sleeping Slig and a few Slogs near the communication tower – sneak past them.
First, you need to examine the communication tower and go through the open left passageway. Watch a cut-scene. Lastly, choose the passage on the right. You are heading left to the train and complete the mission.
