Continue leftward across the retracting platforms. When you reach the left edge of the area, grapple upward.

When you reach the top platform, grapple to your upper-right and quickly swing rightward.

There are some retracting platforms that you may land on. If you don't, be ready to grapple to your upper-right to a permanent platform that's found on your lower-right (you may land on it.) Get on the right retracting platform and just let yourself fall, landing onto the permanent platform.

If possible drop onto the platform below, or onto the lower edge of the wall to your left. If you can't do it, then climb back up onto the moving platform before you hit the wall on your right.

When the lower platform is on the left edge of it's path, climb up.

Go past the elevator and hit the other blue switch with your Bazooka.

Go up the elevator.

You'll come to the final boss, The Leader's Helicopter. He'll shoot rockets at you. Watch which direction they are coming at you. You'll need to use your grapple in the opposite direction to destroy the rockets before they hit you.

Run from the bullets fired.

Fire your Bazooka and use the right analog stick to guide the rocket into the windshield.

Occasionally, the boss will prepare to fire some heavy lasers at you.

Run whichever way the helicopter is leaning. He'll often repeat this pattern three times.

On your third rocket hit, the action will slow for a dramatic conclusion to the fight.

The boss will be destroyed.

Joe will tell you that he's destroyed the main reactor.

The Albatross is falling. You only have so much time to get out before you'll die. Go down the elevator.

Go in the door to the left of the bottom of the elevator.

Run rightward.

Climb up the platforms and start walking left.

You'll find Groeder again. This is an optional fight. It would be extremely difficult to actually kill him and get out alive. If you die and still have lives, you'll start at the doorway to this room.

Rockets will heavily damage him. Avoid his shots.

When he gets on the platforms, you can guide your rockets into him.

Your best bet is to just avoid Groeder and climb up the platforms on the left.

When you get to the top of the platforms, you'll watch the Albatross crash into the water.

Mission accomplished!
