After dealing with the guards and activating several levers, the player enters a mansion-like building. Eventually, they will enter a large room with two large digital screens displaying a picture of a proud Apex. Here, the player shall fight the Big Ape projection.

Secret Areas

There is a secret room that contains the Right Translation Wheel. To unlock this room, you must find a valve wheels and a console. The wheel is near the chest containing the Miniknog Helmet, and the console is in the room overlooking the elevator. Once you have activated these, you must go back to the room at the very far left of the underground tunnels where you encounter the first Miniknog Scientist, and on the far left wall, you will find a secret door elevated off the ground. Behind that door will be a hatch, and if you activated the wheel and console the hatch will be unlocked, leading to a chest containing the Right Translation Wheel next to a large carving of a tentacle.
