Description

Do your part in war against the bugs as Elite Marauder in mobile infantry. You are given weapons like a Morita rifle, plasma rifle, shotgun and even a nuke launcher. You also get the Marauder suit that makes you much stronger than normal grunts, but puts you against hundreds of bugs without support. Remember, service guarantees citizenship. Join now!

Marauder has a armor that reloads when not attacked, various weapons and support units from time to time. The main difference is number of enemies. There are usually hundreds of arachnids attacking and while most of them can be killed easily, there are some like tanker bugs which take huge amount of damage. Next to the action-based missions, there is also some infiltration.

The game takes place five years after the events of the second film. The bugs are still rampaging across the surface of planet Hesperus which is mostly a desert planet, and most fights take place in canyons or Federation bases. There aren't any vehicles you can use, but there are some mounted guns to occupy. The game includes clips from the film in cinematics and mission briefings.
