Base is the third stage in Neo Contra.





For full cutscene dialogues, see Neo Contra Stage 3/Script.

A volcano erupts, shooting Bill and Jaguar high into the sky. Once they land, the swim to the shore, still steaming.

Directly up ahead are two flying bots with search lights - destroy them with lock-on weapons (2%). Further up is another search-bot (3%) and a swarm of ninja-grunts. At the end of the river is a mortar soldier on a hovercraft; take it out with lock-on weapons (5%) and then destroy the artillery unit (6%), and finally the satellite dish (7%) to open the base doors.

Back in the water, two more hovering mortar cannons await (11%), another artillery unit at the end (12%), and finally a second satellite dish (13%) locks the middle doors. Once through the doors, take out the next hovering mortar cannon (15%) and then fight through the grunts toward two more search-bots (17%). While there isn't another artillery unit and satellite, instead a Tarakoid blocks the door; destroy it with heavy weapons (20%) to open the doors. Now you must go through a series of small rooms guarded by two snipers (22%), two bazooka soldiers (24%), and finally, fiver snipers and two armored soldiers (31%). This will clear the way to the first miniboss, the Land Worm (42%).

Once the worm is reduced to crow chow, you are able to get through the last wall and onto the slope leading into the base. On the slope, you will face a continuous stream of grunts and three sets of a search-bot and a tank (51%). Take a left and head up the next slope, killing grunts and avoiding rocks. Destroy the search-bot (52%) and head up the next slope. Kill the sniper (53%) and then the hovering mortar cannon (55%). Be sure to destroy the cylinders (57%) before moving on. There is another sniper, mortar cannon and three cylinders up ahead, but if you take out a cylinder you can destroy all five at once (63%). Head up the next slope and take out the search-bot and two tanks (68%).

At the top of the next slope are two more search-bots (70%), and about halfway up the following slope are two more artillery units (72%). Be careful here because the two units can do a pretty good job of covering the entire slope in bullets. Behind them are two armored soldiers (74%) and a satellite unit (75%). Destroy the satellite to finally get into the base.

The entire base consists of one room, but you'll have to fight three bosses here. First, attack the Armored Mech when it drops its shields (80%), and then destroy the Flying Mech's cannons (85%) and control unit (90%). After both are destroyed, Pheromone Contra will show up.

Pheromone Contra will slowly cross the bridge onto the platform where Bill and Jaguar stand. The two are about to fight her when she takes off her mask to reveal that she is Lucia, Bill's partner from the last war he fought. Bill asks why she's siding with Neo Contra, but she won't say, instead telling Bill that he wouldn't be able to deal with the truth.

Ignore the large mecha in the background and focus on killing Pheromone Contra with heavy weapons. Try and keep your distance and move to the edge of the platform when she starts to power up. It'll take quite a few hits with any weapon to kill her (100%).

Bill once again demands to know what's going on, but still doesn't get a clear answer. Lucia tells Bill that "it wasn't supposed to be like this" and that while he is strong, he can't win against "him", no matter how much he resists. He tries to interrogate Lucia, only for her to perish.
