The training chapter of Opposing Force. Adrian Shephard is bumped to the top of the Advanced Training list.
Shephard and his comrades are trained by Dwight T. Barnes, Marine Drill Instructor, in Santego Military Base, Arizona.
He works his way through the training exercises overlooked by Drill Instructor Sharpe until he is ready for the field.
Easter egg: in the dormitory where the level starts, each trunk bears the name of a Gearbox employee, such as Randy Pitchford, Stephen Bahl, Rob Heironimus, David Mertz, Landon Montgomery, Patrick Deupree, John Faulkenbury, etc., mirroring the Easter egg from Half-Life in the locker rooms of the Sector C of Black Mesa.
Other Easter egg: the room right below Shephard’s dormitory exists but can only be accessed by noclipping. Inside can be found an Easter egg, consisting in initials and a date (“DMM 1999”). “DMM” is the signature of Santego Military Base’s designer, David Mertz, Gearbox employee. “1999” is the release date for Opposing Force.
