In Response To: New(?) Trick on Two Betrayals (Rum'gor)

: (I took a quick look through the Tips and Tricks section and I didnít see
: this one, so maybe itís new. If not, sorry for the redundancy.)

: I discovered this by mistake this morning while playing Two Betrayals on
: Legendary. Just to verify that difficulty level doesnít matter, I also
: successfully did this on Easy mode.

: Start the level normally, kill the sentinels, and then clean out the first
: big room. The trick hinges on how you open the door to the outside (the
: third switch you have to press in the level). Unlike the other switches,
: for some reason this switch can be pressed multiple times. If you hit the
: switch twice in rapid succession, youíll hear the ka-chunk of the switch
: activating twice and the door will remain closed.

: Hereís the crucial bit: you have to hit the switch to open the door, then hit
: it again at the right time so that the door opens, but the game thinks
: that it is still closed (thatís my interpretation anyway). The right
: timing for the second click seems to be right after the lights on the
: switch stop animating. Make sure youíve hit the switch an EVEN number of
: times. Now youíll have to kill a few baddies right outside the door, but
: fewer than normal (I think that the grunts donít appear when you do this).

: From this point on, the level is completely devoid of enemies. You can walk
: down the pyramid, and hop in a Banshee, fly to the first power generator
: (the room is empty and the power seems to be off). I donít see any way to
: continue through the level at this point since the door you need to go
: through on the land bridge is locked. You can, however, walk back to the
: ďmagic switchĒ and hit it another time and all the enemies will spawn and
: you can play through the level normally.

: It might take you a few tries, but it works. I've done it several times now,
: so it wasn't just a one-time thing. Hopefully one of you kind souls can
: replicate my results and back me up on this.

: Fun fun fun. :)

: I havenít tried this in a co-op game yet, but maybe Iíll do that later on
: when my cohorts get off work.

I'll do my best to reproduce this. Sounds fun. :)
