Eighth level, Sonic Heroes

Rail Canyon | Frog Forest

Bullet Station is the eighth level of Sonic Heroes. Eggman's ground base within Rail Canyon, Bullet Station is the central terminus for the fat man's supply trains, and apparently the loading point of the Egg Fleet. The rocky pillars and gorges bristle with defensive artillery guns, the Doctor having apparently capped every sizable peak with rotating, quadruple-barreled howitzers. When not being fired out of cannons to fly between narrow canyon walls, the Teams are busting into high-speed underground rail lines to sabotage Robotnik's infrastructure.

Story

As usual, Team Sonic and Team Dark have the longest mission in Bullet Station: getting all the way to Eggman's mountaintop stronghold, in order to find and confront the obese scientist. Team Rose, now searching for Froggy and Chocola as a first priority rather than blindly following Sonic, find their Goal Ring not so far into the level. The Chaotix, however, are assigned a less orthodox mission - to destroy a set number of capsules, seemingly to prevent the transport of all the Shadow Androids with the Eggman Fleet. As in Power Plant, it seems that Eggman is trying to impede Neo Metal Sonic's militaristic efforts any way he can.

Oddities

  • During the bobsled portion of the level, one of the teams' members will mention that the speed of the bobsled will decrease if the Speed character falls off and if the Fly character falls off, the bobsled won't be able to jump. However, it is impossible for the Fly character to fall off while the other members are still on board as they are always the last to fall off. What isn't mentioned is that if the Power character is thrown off, the bobsled becomes uncontrollable.
  • It is possible to access more of the level as Team Rose. The player must go to the end of their stage, get on the rail as Cream, and at the rail's high point, jump off and fly towards the triple-rail behind the goal ring. Cream must have been raised to level 3 in order to do this. This allows the player to play through more of the stage than normally possible.
