Weapons Factory Stage (兵器工場ステージ)[1] and Aerial Battleship Stage (空中戦艦ステージ)[2] are Blast Hornet's stages in Mega Man X3 and Mega Man Xtreme 2, respectively.

The Weapons Factory Stage begins with a short elevator segment, followed by a wide-open area full of conveyor belts. Going down through the conveyor belts leads to Shurikein's mid-boss room. Afterwards, the stage goes outdoors to an industrial district with warehouses and buildings to climb across, including an underground area where the Ride Armor is held. There is then a long stretch of road where one of Gravity Beetle's airships will appear for cargo loading, and its Carry Arms must be destroyed to progress. Next is another indoor segment with falling cargo boxes before Blast Hornet's boss arena.

Several docked Spycopters can be seen in the background during the interior portions of the stage, including the boss room.

The Aerial Battleship on Laguz Island is very different from the Weapons Factory, appearing as part of Zero Mission. It begins in a tower, which leads to a platforming section across Spycopters in the sky. Next is the titular battleship, which the Hunters fight across before infiltrating the interior to battle the Core and then Blast Hornet.

Enemies in Blast Hornet's stage from Mega Man Xtreme 2:


Mega Man X3

Location Life Up
Jump out of a Ride Armor to climb up the wall at the end of the outdoor warehouses. The Life Up is on the roof.
Location Ride Armor
Use Tornado Fang to break into one of the warehouses, then descend to find the Ride Armor Chimera trapped by a Hangerter. Destroying the Hangerter will unlock the Ride Armor for future use, and it can also be taken up an elevator for use in the level.
Location Head Chip
Go to the top right corner of the conveyor belts room to find a wall with spikes. Use the Foot Parts air dash or a Hawk Ride Armor to pass the spikes and find the capsule beyond.

Mega Man Xtreme 2

Location Life Up
Before jumping across the second set of Spycopters, descend to find a hidden set of Spycopters with a Life Up.
Location Body Parts
Instead of destroying the Flamer to descend into the battleship, continue to the right. Use Drill Crush to destroy the wall of crates and reveal the capsule.
