Although I don’t claim it was aliens it was certainly aliens.
Prodeus‘s spin on gunpowder archeology continues into Trench, where you venture into the depths of the Prodean dimension’s ocean in search of something that could, no pun intended, turn the tide. This stage is high-concept and high-impact and introduces a new enemy. It also continues the war between Chaos and the Prodeans. Prodeus‘s first campaign.
Here’s where to find all the stashed loot on Trench.

Finding All the Secrets & Ore on Trench
As noted before, if you’ve been following along with these guides, you should have accumulated enough Ore Fragments by now to buy the MAMMOTH revolver at the Shop. It’s a nearly ideal weapon for Trench, as it features high damage per second and long-range accuracy. Trench is full of fights that require both the one or the other.
The Phantom is the new enemy of the Prodeans. Like the Slayer, it has a ranged attack that effectively cannot be dodged; if the Phantom’s beam is in the air at all, it’s about to hit you unless something’s in the way. It is best to keep as much cover as possible between you and it.
#1: If you double-jump onto a blue-lit pillar at the beginning of the level, it will reveal a platform with an armor pickup nearby.
#2: Continue down the first elevator and continue along the right-hand side of the trench until your find an Ore Fragment or some plasma ammo.
#3: After the second Nexus Point, you’ll end up back out on the water. Follow the path to the Nexus Point next to the switch.
Don’t push that switch right away. Instead, you should drop to the platform’s edge. There’s an Ore Fragment and some chaos ammo hidden on a small ledge at water level.
#4: Take the second elevator up and then you will be able to survive the ambush sequence. From here, you’ll follow the red beam down the corridor until it stops. To progress, you need to hit a switch that raises a device that’ll reorient the beam.
If you’re facing that switch, turn left and go into the short dead-end hallway at the side of the room. There’s a dim red switch on the left-hand wall (circled below).
Press it to open a secret door right next to it, where you’ll find an Ore Fragment and 4 armor shards.
#5: Continue the level after Secret #4. The next section of the corridor is difficult. You will have to fight two Harbingers and then a Phantom. Once you’ve survived that, if you look up, you’ll spot an Ore Fragment in the rafters.
To get to the rafter from the Ore Fragment across the street, you can use the molding to reach it. Then do a double-jump to find the secret. It’s easier to get onto the molding if you jump for it from one of the nearby pillars, rather than trying to get up to it from the stairs, due to the local level geometry.
Ore Fragments: 7.
#1: See Secret #2 above.
#2: Continue your elevator ride down and go through the trench in front of yourself before you hit the next switch. This will drop a portion of the level directly in front of your. If you keep an eye on the left-hand wall as you progress through the new trench, you’ll spot an Ore Fragment in an alcove.
#3: Please refer to Secret #3.
#4: You’ll probably see this one from a long way off, but the trick is getting to it alive. This Ore Fragment is next to this level’s Automap on the battlements at the base of the second elevator, but you have to wade through a pitched battle between the Prodeans and Chaos demons to reach it.
#5: Please refer to Secret #4.
#6: Please refer to Secret #5 above.
#7: The last Ore Fragment is directly in front of the level’s exit.
