How do I activate the rocket in Half-Life Rocket Frenzy?

You'll have to find a few buttons to activate the rocket in Half-Life Rocket Frenzy, one of the many multiplayer maps in the game. Before pressing that big red launch button, you must first activate fuel, oxygen, and power. I suggest starting from the lowest floor, as the launch button is at the top.

You can turn on the power on the fourth (ground) floor. Go into the hallways away from the rocket until you reach a room with pools of water. Wade through the water and go up the stairs to the platform you see in the image. Press the button, and you're done with this area.

Heads up, the water is now electrified with the power on, so you will take damage. Try to have as much health as possible so you don't die in the water like I did. Once you're out, return to the rocket area and go up the ladder.

You'll head into the hallways on the third floor until you reach the kitchen. Grab a snack from the vending machines and press the oxygen button. That's it from this area, so you can head back and climb the ladder.

The last fuel button is on the second floor. You can find it in the hallway and on a platform as you can see in the image below. Honestly, while very obvious, I missed it many times while running away from enemies.

Once the last button is pressed, head back to the top and the satellite operations room. You'll see that all of the lights are now on. That means you can finally press the tempting button and launch the rocket.

You'll have 90 seconds before the satellite blasts off. Everyone has enough time to hide or get incinerated by the fire. If you have teammates this whole process will be easier as you can spread out and cover more ground. Watch the satellite fly and then go back to killing your enemies.
