Part-way through the stage (at the end of the second part of the level) a flat platform will lower you down a huge pit, while being lowered skip the first door you pass (donít worry when the elevator disappears, just fall), instead enter the second door at the bottom that appears there, and then beat him in a fight. If you failed, you can retry this once you complete the Subspace Emissary.

Hope this helps!
