"Marine? I can't believe you're still alive."
― Sergeant Kelly [source]

Mars City: Union Aerospace Corporate Division is the third level of Doom 3. It is the same area as Mars City, but takes place after the demonic invasion. The marine is given his mission to link up with Bravo Team in this level. This is where the demo ends.

Summary[edit]

Spoiler Warning: Plot details follow.

The marine returns to Mars City to find the place in chaos. The sounds of battle can be heard coming from the walls, but at this point most of Mars City has already fallen.

Fairly early in the level the marine encounters a survivor Roland who is hiding in the ventilation shaft near the elevator. Roland extends a ladder allowing the player to climb into the shaft. He then urges the marine to go get help.

The marine uses the ventilation shaft to enter the Manifest Control Office and from there fights his way through Security Operations to the Infirmary. From there he gains access to Marine Command and arrives back at Marine HQ. All the marines stationed there are dead, but a communications console is still working and has an incoming transmission from Sergeant Kelly who is pleasantly surprised to see that the marine are still alive.

Sergeant Kelly informs the marine that he is trapped in the Delta Complex and has decided to set up a command post there. He orders the marine to link up with Bravo Team and help them send a distress call to the Earth Fleet. In order to reach Bravo Team, the marine must head through Alpha Labs. Kelly also updates the marine's security clearance, giving him access to the ACO section of Mars City.

With the aid of a surviving sentry bot, the marine fights his way through the ACO area to the elevator. From there, he rides the elevator to the next level: Administration.

Marine Comm Center
Return to the Command Message Center for a status update from Sergeant Kelly

Spoilers end here.

Secrets[edit]

  • In the starting room there's a machine gun and some shards lying on a catwalk from which the player came from in the intro, but the staircase has collapsed so the player has to jump on a railing to get there.
  • When the player first meets the sentry bot, one can go back to reception where they got the PDA at the start of the game. There, one can access a nearby room with supplies by jumping through the window with missing glass panel.
  • In the last room, with the exit elevator in it, there's an vent shaft to the right from the entrance that can be used to access the second floor of the room, which contains a PDA that can be used to gain access to a locked office right before the elevator room, and some supplies.

Notes[edit]

  • In Sec Ops Processing the player can choose to go to Security Operations through a small corridor. If the player does that they will encounter two Z-Secs and, among other things, a non-functioning door. However, if the player chooses not to go there, later on when they reach Marine Command Access, the same door will be blown from its frame and the same Z-Secs will attack the player anyway. However, the player will encounter an additional Z-Sec if they enter Security Operations this time.
  • If the player chooses not to go to Security Operations and proceeds to Infirmary Access Junction and then backtracks, on Marine skill level and above, an additional Z-Sec will spawn and ambush the player.
  • In Infirmary where you get attacked by the unique morgue zombie, if you kill said zombie before it manages to get up from its bed, the one or two (depends on the skill level) machine gun Z-Secs won't spawn. This is likely a bug, as it seems the trigger for the Z-Sec(s) to appear is scripted to work after the morgue zombie's get up sequence is finished.
  • If the player goes to Combat Preparations (armory) room before getting the transmission from Sarge, a Z-Sec will be waiting inside.
  • If the player go into the bathroom and look at themself in the mirror, they will see a vision of marine turning into a zombie. When the vision ends, an imp will spawn outside.
  • In the demo version, when the level is completed, the player's vision will turn red and evil laughter will be heard.
