The Nintendo 64 classic GoldenEye 007 is now playable for gamers on Xbox Game PassNintendo Switch Online or owners of Rare Replay. However, for those who can’t remember how to tackle the many objectives of the single-player missions, we’ve prepared a GoldenEye 007 Walkthrough Guide: Caverns! This article will cover everything you need to know to complete the seventeenth level, Caverns, on Agent, Secret Agent and 00 Agent difficulties.

Caverns is a big level. There’s a lot of enemies here, so on 00 Agent you’re likely to run low on ammo. To avoid this, frequently switch between the RCP-90 and the Assault rifle. Try blowing up the wooden boxes with your mines to get the ammo inside.

Primary Objectives:

A: Destroy inlet pump controls (Secret Agent, 00 Agent)
B: Destroy outlet pump controls (Secret Agent, 00 Agent)
C: Destroy master control console (Secret Agent, 00 Agent)
D: Use radio to contact Jack Wade (00 Agent)
E: Minimize scientist casualties

GoldenEye 007 Walkthrough Guide: Caverns

You begin in the elevator you ended the Control level with. As soon as you open the door you should be ready for a shootout. Three guards are immediately outside. When they are dead, exit the elevator, grab the ammo, and watch the door. More are coming.

Open the next door and run down the stairs. You can usually find an Assault Rifle on the way down, courtesy of a now dead guard. You won’t want to use this until a little later however, due to a lack of ammo.

After the stairs there are two guards at another door. Open the door to find yet more waiting on the other side. Continue along the walkway clearing out any more guards, and then head back to the first door and down the stairs. On Agent, you will find a Body Armour here.

On Secret Agent and 00 Agent difficulties you will have an additional task here: to blow up the large computers in each of the rooms. There are scientists in here that can get caught in the explosion, causing you to fail your mission.

The best way to get the scientists to leave is to run up to them holding a gun. This will usually make
them run away, but sometimes they just stand there with arms up. If this happens, simply fire a shot or two over their heads. This usually causes them to run away.

Use your Timed Mines on the computers (Objective A: Completed). Throw a few more Timed Mines on the big pile of boxes, then wait for it to blow up. You’ll the be able to grab some much needed ammo.

Head up the stairs and out the next door. You are now in the spiral room. There are two guards on patrol down the passage.

Behind the next door are lots of guards. Open it and run back, taking cover as you put them down.

Head back through the door once cleared, and you’ll find yourself in another room filled with ammo boxes. Don’t be afraid to use all of your mines in here as you won’t need them anymore.

Equip your Assault Rifle and open the door. Use the scope to fire on the guy at the other end of the walkway, then at more guards that come running.

Head along the Cavern walkways. There are a lot of easy ambushes here. Continue all the way to the
end of the walkway, ignoring the first door.

Once you’ve reached the last door, use your Assault Rifle to snipe the two guards. One will drop a special code card, which you will need later. For now though, fire a few shots to attract the attention of the guards on the bottom walkway. They’ll come running up to get you.

Once the shootout is over, grab the code card, and run down the stairs. There are a few guys left down here.

As soon as you’re done with that, run all the way back to the last door on the walkway and shoot through the glass window. This should attract a few guards which you can easily ambush. You should find another code card.

If you’re playing on Agent difficulty, this next sequence isn’t for you. You can head onwards, but there’s simply no need. Instead, head back to the second door on the walkway.

Open the door and run into the room. Grab the Body Armour if you’re playing on Secret Agent.

Head over to the left side of the big platform. Aim across the room and eliminate the guards that will be shooting at you.

00 Agents have to save a radio, which is hidden up on the stage. It’s surrounded by barrels of gasoline, the Master Control Console, scientists, and some guards. Stay where you are and carefully use your Assault Rifle to head shot the five guards behind the crates.

Now go and use the radio. You’ll call Jack Wade (Objective D: Completed). Once the radio has been used shoot one of the barrels. This will cause a big explosion, destroying the Master Control Console (Objective C: Completed).

Once you’re finished, exit this room the way you came. Go all the way back along the walkway until you get to that second door.

Open the door and turn left to see a guard. If more guards come, exit the doorway and wait for them in the hall.

There is also a drone gun in this room. It’s on the left side above the big door. Blow it up before continuing on.

There are lots of guards in the next room; two behind the file cabinets on the right, and more at the bottom of the stairs.

When this room is cleared, head down and shoot the two computers next to the big pump, then another in the corner (Objective B: Completed).

Head to the big door, crouch and open it. As the door opens, aim your weapon and you should see two guards at the other end of the hall.

Open the door on the right wall. Be ready to shoot just as with the previous door. Be sure to close this door behind you.

Open the next door, then another behind, and step backwards out of the doorway. Ignore Trevelyan and instead take out the two drone guns on the ceiling.

Run into the room shooting only to temporairly disable guards. There’s no point in trying to kill them all. Head into the elevator and, if you didn’t kill any scientists (Objective E: Complete) you just beat the
