- The Tip of the Day.

SHEER HEART ATTACK is the third mission of the LUST layer. Reminiscent of [ 1-3: HALLS OF SACRED REMAINS ], the level has multiple interconnected sections and hidden areas, though is much more linear in its progression. This level introduces the Mindflayer, a powerful, rare enemy that only occasionally reappears due to its difficulty to fight.

Major Areas[]

Lobby[]

A room with a heart-shaped pool in the center and a staircase wrapping around the perimeter. The pool leads to a small underwater room with tunnels leading around the room and to the Grinder Arena. The room is revisited multiple times.

This room technically has multiple waves of enemies, each appearing as V1 progresses further through the mission.

  • When first entering the room, 4 Strays and 2 Soldiers spawn along the staircase and at the top of the room.
  • Entering the pool after the Blue Skull is picked up will make 8 Filth, 3 Strays and a Soldier spawn underwater.
  • Returning with the Red Skull will make a Mindflayer spawn in.

Waterfall arena[]

A large arena with a waterfall and a room with a glass wall. Initially entered via an enclosed tunnel suspended over the room.

When the arena activates, 6 Filth spawn under the waterfall, flanked by 2 Soldiers, and 2 Schisms spawn under the bridge.

  • Killing all Filth summons a Malicious Face in front of the waterfall.
  • Killing all Soldiers and Schisms will summon 2 Drones in front of the waterfall and 2 Streetcleaners in the glass-walled room.

Clearing the arena will open the lower door back to the Lobby, where a Blue Skull can be obtained.

Grinder Arena[]

A multi-leveled room unlocked with the Blue Skull. It is full of streetlights and grinders, with ramps branching across the arena to connect floors. It also contains a row of crushers.

When the arena activates, a line of 6 Filth spawn on the rightmost platform, as well as 4 Soldiers and 2 Streetcleaners.

  • When all enemies are killed, 4 Drones and 4 Soldiers will spawn.

Once all enemies are killed, the exit door is past the line of crushers; grabbing the Red Skull in the next room lets you leave through the glass tunnel from the Waterfall Arena, leading back to the Lobby.

Final Arena[]

A room with a pool in the center, fed by a waterfall in front of the Level Exit. Twin sets of stairs lead to a platform above the entrance.

  • On entering, 3 Filth spawn on the entrance platforms and a Mindflayer spawns above the pool flanked by 2 Strays.
  • When the Mindflayer is brought to half health, 2 Soldiers spawn on the entrance platforms.
  • When the Mindflayer dies, 4 Drones spawn above the pool.

The level exit opens once all enemies are killed.

Secret Mission
The Secret Level Exit is behind the waterfall in the Waterfall Arena, but the water pressure is too powerful for V1 to slip through.

There are three electric boxes similar to those in [ 2-2: DEATH AT 20,000 VOLTS ] hidden throughout the level. When destroyed, they will drain all water and disable all deadly equipment in the level. This allows V1 to pass through the waterfall and reach the Secret Level Exit to [ 2-S: ALL-IMPERFECT LOVE SONG ].

The locations of the breakers are listed below.

  • (Electric Box 1) - Under the bridge in the Waterfall Arena.
  • (Electric Box 2) - In a hidden area near the ceiling of the Grinder Arena.
  • (Electric Box 3) - Behind the stairs leading to the Red Skull pedestal.

Challenge Advice
As both Level Exits are blocked by waterfalls, it is impossible to complete this challenge without draining the water; careful platforming allows V1 to destroy each of the breakers without touching the water. The underwater route to the Grinder Arena can be skipped by blowing up a cracked wall in the Lobby, leading directly to the Blue Skull pedestal.
