One-Eyed Worm strategy

To defeat the energy leech, keep the freeze ray on you from the previous level. As soon as the fight scene with the leech starts, it will slam its body on the sea bed. When this happens, zap the leech with the freeze ray and the leech's energy will be reduced down to the red, so you will only need 1 hit with the RPG to finish this beast off.

Walk up to him to have Duke say "That's one dead space marine." His helmet looks a lot like Isaac Clark's helmet from Dead Space.
