Walkthrough[edit]

The Pit of Cerberus

"Follow the passage until you get to the metal doors, and go through them. To get Cerberus to come out, you'll need to activate 4 skull symbols. Turn to your left and follow the passage. When you come to the first skull symbol, activate it and climb the stairs to your left. Follow the passage to the 2nd one, activate it, and head down the passage to your right. Follow it over the bridge, and past the elevator shaft, and push the 3rd one. Drop down the elevator shaft. Come out of the shaft, head to your right, and activate the 4th and final skull. Now Cerberus will come out to play in the are to your left."
--Baytor's Guide

Caleb hears the howling of a large dog.

CALEB: Cujo?

Caleb travels through the winding passages of the outer sanctum, battling the hell hounds that guard the locks to the inner sanctum. Once it is opened, Caleb fights and defeats Cerberus.

CALEB: Good doggie... play dead!

Caleb stands before the corpse of Cerberus. He flicks open a pocket knife and makes an incision in the beasts belly. He then proceeds to stuff it with remote detonators. Casually, he walks away, and pulls out the remote. He presses it and Cerberus explodes in a rain of blood and body parts. As blood drips from his hat, Caleb says:

CALEB: Rest in pieces.
