Area 6

Bionic Commando - Area 6

Ah, Area 6... This Area is set at night and has very night-like music to accompany it. It is built in the sky above water, and this will cause much frustration because falling often results in death.

Bionic Commando - Area 6 Bionic Commando - Area 6

Area 6 is divided into 2 major sections. The first section is mainly just made up of many platforms, poles, and small buildings. You must swing your way from building-to-building, pole-to-pole, and platform-to-platform. This can be very frustrating because a single mistake usually results in death. It will take precise timing, high skill, and much patience to get past this part. Once you get past the first section, you will then face a second section that consists of a huge green buiding. You must work your way to the top of this building which isn't hard in itself. The problem is that these huge guys are hurling spiked balls which roll around and gradually make their way down to the bottom of the building. These spiked balls are are excellent deterrents and will prevent you from easily making your way to the top of the building.

Bionic Commando - Giant Soldier Once you reach the top, you can enter the boss room. This will be your first encounter with the Giant Soldier! The Giant Soldier is really just a large man in a cybernetic suit. This suit has very strong armor, and it also has a wire similar to a bionic arm that will grab you and pull you into the Giant Soldier for a loss of energy. Bionic Commando - Permit There are two basic strategies to employ here. The first is to just try to destroy the reactor. You will take some hits, but you will only have to hit the reactor 3 or 4 times with the rocket launcher. This is the strategy I used the first time I beat this level. The other strategy is to kill the Giant Soldier and then blast the reactor. I use this method now, but it takes longer and may be more difficult for a beginner. Once you blast the reactor core you will receive the Permit. The permit will allow you to enter Neutral Area 14 which will then allow you to reach more levels in the game.


Overall, Area 6 is one of the hardest levels in the game. It takes a lot of skill and intelligent bionic arm usage. It may seem impossible at first, but once you have tried it 20 times or so you should get better!
