Speedrunner’s Note: The timer on the PC version stops as soon as you reach and activate the terminal at the very end of this level. On all other versions the timer continues running until the very, very end (adding up to a minute on the final time).
Nip through the left-hand teleporter and wait in the light here so the Seeker on the left comes your way. Once it reaches the sensor beam in the middle step into the shadows and jump up to the ledge above.
If you catch the moving shadow when it’s at the far right (closest to you), you shouldn’t be spotted by the boss (although this can be tricky to time right). Stay away from the sensor beam until the left-side of the shadow overlaps some of the terminal.
Once the platform above has fully extended itself, jump up to the ledge on the right and run to the right-hand side (so you’re standing in the light). This will attract the Seeker to the next sensor bar, so once it reaches it; jump up to the platform above (that will now be dark) and hack the terminal.
Carefully jump up to the lowered platform (if you jump up too high it’s likely the boss will spot you) and stand here until the Seeker is level with the terminal. Whilst still in the shadows, carefully hop up to the top-right platform (with the hard light on it) and stand in the light until the Seeker is inside the hard light itself.
Jump from the edge of this platform to the one above (stopping in the shadows briefly), perform a long hard jump to the light square opposite you and then very quickly get into shadow on the left-side of the screen. Hop over to the light located in the top-left corner and wait for the Seeker to reach the first sensor beam it touches.
Run off the platform to the one moving right below you, hack the panel, wait for the shadow to get low enough so it’s safe to drop down without being spotted, stand in the light until the Seeker is now lined up with the sensor beam above you and this will allow you to hack the next terminal in safety.
Run down to the light tiles in the bottom-left corner of the screen and wait here until the Seeker reaches the sensor beam above you (it’ll also likely spot you now). Jump up to the moving platform above you and hack the next panel to turn off all the lights.
Do you need the [Helix] still? You do? Then follow our advice below for picking it up hassle-free. If you don’t need it you can make a dash for the corridor on the right, but be warned that the boss can see you as you approach the light so it can kill you still if you’re careless!
Now hack the very last panel and watch the ending unfold…
