The main elements of 3-8 are:
- The base, in the middle on the right side of the map.
- The portals:
- VRU players must be level 12 or above to enter 3-8.
- MMO and EIC players must be level 17 or above to enter 3-8.
Aliens on 3-8 are:
- If your ship is destroyed in an upper map, and you are level 12 or above, then you will restart in 3-8, not 3-1.
- 3-8 is generally fairly quiet when it comes to enemy activity... but any enemy that can enter 3-8 is high-level. So be ready to run for the base or a portal if you see a fast-moving red dot on the minimap.
- Because 3-8 is quiet, it's generally a good place to collect bonus boxes.
