Walkthrough

Warpin message:
"The Maze" is the name of this mysterious Gurista military complex. Most of those who have dared venture inside have not lived to tell about it, and those who are still alive are now labour workers for the Gurista.

Although never confirmed, the deepest pockets of this complex are rumored to be the home of Fatal himself.

The maze contains a large number of acceleration gates. In each room one gate takes you deeper into the complex while the rest of the lead back to the first pocket.

1st pocket

The gate is unlocked and the rats do not need to be killed. But you will most likely have to fly through this pocket many times so thinning out the rats is recommended.

In the room there are twelve acceleration gates. One of them leads deeper into the complex while the rest loop back. Take the bottom Gate.

Experienced explorers will quickly establish a simple method to always choose the correct acceleration gate. Before taking any gate, drop a canister in front of it. If the gate returns you to the entrance, proceed to the next gate you wish to try and drop a canister in front of that one. Label each can and proceed to continue with this process until you find the right gate - make a note of which can is in front of the proper gate and either ignore or destroy all of the others.

Each acceleration gate will first send you to an empty room and then back to the beginning of the complex. When you activate the second acceleration gate, you will instantly be able to tell whether or not you are being returned to the beginning - if you are, the intro window bearing the complex's description will pop up once again.

Warning: The Fleet Outpost fires Kinetic Citadel Torpedoes that can instantly destroy any craft not suitably equipped for it!

This room contains a mixture of frigates, cruisers, and battleships along with cruise missile batteries and the fleet outpost (firing Citadel Kinetic Torpedoes). Upon attacking the outpost 4 battleships spawn. The outpost will release more waves of defenders as it takes damage. Upon the outpost's destruction a jetcan will appear with a 23rd Tier Overseer's Personal Effects and possibly additional loot including Pith-X Type modules or a Rattlesnake BPC.

There are 4 additional spawns that occur at damage intervals on the station. A spawn will occur at half-shield, half-armor. two-thirds structure and one third structure. Once you have reduced the station to one third structure you may as well finish it off before dealing with the spawn. Database Entry for structure stats.
