The 3rd Floor Stairwell is a set of twin winding staircases on either side which is the only known access between the 3rd floor and the 2nd Floor of Derceto Manor. In the beginning, the main character can be seen seen going up the staircase while making his way to the Loft. When the playing character tries to go down to the 2nd Floor, he finds two Nightgaunts blocking each path. The player must dispatch the Nightgaunts to continue exploring the manor.


In order to destroy the Nightgaunts, the player must have retrieved the two Small Mirrors. The mirrors must be placed in the arms of the statues on each side of the room. After the Nightgaunts are dispatched, the stairs can be used to access the second floor. Nightgaunts are invincible, so don't bother wasting bullets or trying to fight them.

Note: Carefull to not get hit! if you do, the Small Mirrors will break and you'll be stuck.
