In a desperate attempt to gain the upper hand over the infected, the Security Team proceed towards the Apollo Starport. They seek to awaken the Ivax. This colossal mining walker is a prototype for a model set to replace the older Seth model. Simply step onto the Hexes to activate the behemoth. Prior to powering up the mechanized titan, the Sec Team has its mining equipment overcharged to lethal levels, as well as augmenting it with additional weaponry.
Unfortunately, immediately after activating, HAL transfers her consciousness into Ivax, and begins a mindless rampage. The Marines need only to flee to a safe distance. Chapter 2 ends after completing this simple task.
