Cool Fusion is the eighth level in Marathon. It is the fifth level of Counterattack, the second chapter of the game.


You have just been teleported here from Smells Like Napalm, Tastes Like Chicken! The first terminal is a message from Leela. She tells you that she wants to send a transmission to Earth warning them of the Pfhor, but the UESC Marathon's long range transmitter array is down and you must reset the secondary transmitter. Before sending you out into a vacuum however, she wants you to collect the Zeus Class Fusion Pistol, as your current weaponry is ill-suited for vacuum.

She gives you a map to the Fusion Pistol, but tells you that it may not be accurate, as her sensors are less reliable and the data has been intercepted. In the second terminal, Leela tells you that there are two clans of Pfhor that you have not encountered yet: the Enforcer class and the Hunter class.

From the last terminal you are teleported to G4 Sunbathing.
