Gametitle-VB.pngThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

The Dome Tunnels is the 4th sub-level of the Boulder Dome. This area of the dome is not accessible to the player until they are at least to Part 2 of the game. This level is toxic and irradiated; the only way to survive here is by wearing an Environmental Suit like the members of the infected scientist team are wearing.

Layout[edit | edit source]

The layout description is in accordance with the numbered picture to the right:

  • 1: Water Storage - a series of tanks; one of the tanks can be broken into and used as a tunnel to the secret entrance
  • 2: Not Mentioned
  • 3: Robobrain Rechargers - put here to guard the access elevator to the ZAX Mainframe
  • 4: Not Mentioned
  • 5: Sleeper Chambers - rows and rows of sleeper tanks; only one room is actually accessible to PC
  • 6: Another Sleeper Chamber
  • 7: Think Tank - brains in the aquarium; these were the early people who tested with CODE
  • 8: Reactor Access - here's where the PC can fiddle with the main reactor for the dome, and even fix it if they're skilled enough
  • 9: Purification Center - handles water, air and temperature; flooded with toxic gas (damaged)
  • 10: Morgue - many dead bodies with brains extracted, dating to pre-war times; some are in better shape than others
  • 11: Not mentioned
  • E: Exit/Elevator - bottom right corner exit leads to the Zax level, the one near the center leads back up to the Boulder Dome Level 3
