Overwhelming Odds is the first Alien Vendetta map that requires a bit of planning and care. The level has two halves - the upper half, which is simple, and the bottom half, chock-full of ambushes and tough fights. To reach the south-east of the map, you must raise a bridge by pressing a switch in the large demon-infested nukage pool, but grab the BFG first, as doing so releases two Cyberdemons, then an army of Cacodemons - the toughest fight of this map.
Both keys in the southern half of the map are guarded by nasty ambushes, which become much easier by carefully instigating monster infighting.
- From the starting area, head south up the stairs and through the door. IN the following room is a wall with a lightning bolt symbol on it - open it and flip the switch, lowering a pillar with a berserk pack on it in the same room.
- A bit beyond the door up the stairs north of the starting area, you'll reach a brown room lit by some gas lamps. There is a combat armor vest across a narrow river of blood; pick it up and a wall will open nearby. Run into this newly-opened room to get a shotgun and some health.
- In the northeastern corner of the map is another room lit by gas lamps, this one with circuitry-covered walls. One of the walls in this room is solid brown, however, and can be opened to reveal a backpack.
