"If war is an art, I'm fuckin' Michelangelo!"
Sam Stone[src]

The Guardian of Time is the twelfth and final level of Serious Sam 3: BFE.


During the journey to the Time-Lock, Sam’s car has run out of gas and the sudden appearance of a Sandwhale forces him to abandon the car and run. Sam now has to fight his way against Mental's Horde who try to stop him from reaching his destination. After Stone has finally reached the hills leading to the Time-Lock, all he needs to do is wipe out Mental's final defense and activate the Time-Lock to start his mission.


  1. Near the Kamikaze fight — instead of going left following the path, go straight — right, you will arrive at dead end, look up. You will see a box in the rocks, destroy the box with a rocket and to get some Devastator shells.
  2. In the large area with some ruins — on the left close to the sand border next to an arch, on the side closest to the sand is some electricity.
  3. In the large area with some ruins — enter the central temple in this area, look up at the hole in the ceiling and shoot down the box to get a clip of sniper bullets.
  4. Near the Sirian Werebull fight — at the double-rock archway after the first clearing there are a bunch of boxes and ammo and a rocket crate. Beneath one of the destructible crates is some Devastator shells.
