Mission: Level 10


  • Once the third AA Gun is destroyed, the player will continue through the rocky exterior to a destroyed building. The floor is destroyed just past a collection of ammo right of the entrance.
  • Stop before leaving this building. There’s a sheer drop after stepping through the exit door, leading into a large open area. This is where you’ll be able to find infinitely spawning aliens, making this a good spot to finish challenges.


  • From the location — the exit looking out into the dark courtyard — stop and look to the far right. Equip any scoped weapon, and check out the aliens appearing above the spotlight. They’ll run across the roof before jumping down.
  • If you stay inside the building, and don’t drop down into the courtyard, these aliens will never stop coming.
  • Kill these spawning aliens to your heart’s content! When you’ve run out of ammo, simply reload the previous checkpoint. You’ll retain any points gained toward challenges and keep any XP you’ve gained.
