Default Galleries Under siege, Mercenaries after getting the Respirator.

Does anyone know what exactly the spawning criteria for them is? they're listed on Stella's site but sometimes when I play they don't actually spawn, I'm talking about the two guys that spawn on your way back after grabbing the respirator.

They tend to spawn when I skip directly to the level but I've had them not spawn a good few times when playing through AOD normally.

Is it maybe related to just using the Dart SS to knock out the mercenaries? (Since they're technically not dead and get up around 5 seconds later.)

I know the merc that ambushes you if you try to backtrack towards the sewers (which you can't as the door is locked.) only spawns if the first merc with his back towards you is already dead and if you walk over his trigger with the merc only knocked out with the Dart gun he'll never spawn.

I'll check when I get home from work if maybe it's tied to not killing the guard in the Respirators section of the level til' after you've already picked up the Respirator. (which I've done a few times.)

I think you're correct that the guard in the staircase room only spawns when you kill the guard that zips down in front of the door. I remember watching a speedrun and the player jumped past the guard without killing them and there were no guards then in the staircase area.

In my playthroughs I remember seeing everything from no guards to one guard before ascending the stairs to one guard before and another after coming down the staircase. But it's likely due to which guards you actually kill, not just KO or avoid.
