Secret

When playing the multiplayer level seen in this screenshot: http://www.mobygames.com/game/windows/aliens-versus-predator-gold-edition/screenshots/gameShotId,12916/ do the following to get a hidden snipers room:

- shoot the third window from the left on the office block at the far end of the above screenshot, (you'll see the window open - run into the building in the middle of the map - run straight up the stairs to the top - do a long jump over to the roof of the building opposite you, (the building on the left in the above screenshot) - turn until you are facing the open window and run like the wind jumping at the last minute - this is the hard bit - if you make it, you'll get a great secret weapon and be hidden by the 'closed' window that you can see through.
