SPOILER WARNING!!!

If you're that far into the game you should have the BFG by now. If not, this will be a spoiler. Read ahead at your own risk. I'd hate to spoil this part of the game if you're not there yet. But if you're still reading you want to know. So.... You get the BFG by defeating Sarge - or rather the huge tank/monster that he mutated into. When you meet him he uses the BFG on YOU! You'll end up on a square platform with several columns. There are steep drop offs on all sides. It's easy to fall and die from the force of the BFG blast if it doesn't kill you outright. IIRC, I used the rocket launcher to defeat him while ducking and running behind the columns. Use the BFG's slow recharge to time your attack. You have to be careful of those columns tho - they discharge electricity from time to time. There are health, armor, and ammo packs behind the columns that you'll need. When you finall defeat him the BFG is right next to him. There are some additional health packs and ammo in his cove. IIRC you have to exit through a hidden panel in one of the coves. Good luck!.......joe

Yeah, you missed the BFG. But you can still kill those huge badasses with the rocket launcher. I just did (I've got Delta Labs 4 saved). You've got to dodge and run like crazy. It helps to go down the steps at the back of the room to give yourself more distance and time to dodge the green fireballs.

I wouldn't worry about the BFG tho. Once you finish off the monsters you'll decend straight into hell. And you'll leave behind whatever awesome eq you had on the way down. Good luck!
