Zero-G Therapy is a level in Viscera Cleanup Detail.
During the recent alien invasion and subsequent cleansing of alien lifeforms from this space station deep in the outer quadrant, systems failed and gravity was temporarily disabled.
It is expected of you to perform your duties in low gravity or face premature retrenchment.
Only once you have sanitized the facility and restored gravity will the company trust you with another assignment.
Excessive use and abuse of the facility's systems will result in immediate termination.
The map consists of a single, large central chamber with shorter rooms on opposite sides. Use of the gravity mechanic is required to clean the stains off of the high ceilings and to access the Incinerator, which is mounted to the ceiling of the central chamber. There is an airlock on the far side of the level.

Tips and TriviaEdit
- The word "despair" is written high on the wall near the airlock.
- This is currently one of only two levels in Viscera Cleanup Detail to take place in a zero-gravity environment. The only other being Gravity Drive.
- Beside the panel that controls the airlock door, there is another gravity control panel on the opposite side of the map that does not control the airlock. Both panels must be active (green) for gravity to be on. Panels will flash with a red light if deactivated.
- A large airlock door can be seen on one of the smaller rooms connected to the central chamber. Pressing the console to the right of it with the hands selected will cause it to open. Any items thrown out the airlock will fade an disappear in a short time.
- Items can be effectively disposed of by throwing them out of the airlock, which can be more convenient than trying to carry items to the incinerator mounted to the ceiling. However, players may not walk out of the airlock.
- There are two lanterns supplied in the level, which are not needed as the level is brightly lit. However, these lanterns will fall and break once gravity is enabled, unless they are retrieved first. If lost or broken, there are no means of retrieving more.
- Gravity will be disabled while the airlock is open, but the player will be able to stand and jump on the stairs leading up to it. Items, however, will still float.
- While gravity is off, the player is able to touch and "stick" to the floor in order to walk normally, but this bond is easily broken by jumping or tripping over an item. It should be noted that players cannot track any kind of mess on their boots while doing this.
- Gravity must be on when the player is to clock out to obtain a perfect score when exiting the level.
- Both water buckets and waste disposal bins are much less useful in this level. Water buckets, even with the gravity turned off, will still spill if tipped over and cannot be used to clean the Mop in zero gravity without sending them soaring through the air. Waste disposal bins are nearly useless, as the only two places where one may dispose of them require gravity to be off in order to access, which will cause all the items in the bin to drift out of it.
- There are several airborn blood spatters scattered around the level, that can only be removed by turning gravity off and allowing them to fall to the floor, where they will create a bloody splat.
- Strangely enough, as seen in multiplayer mode, players are not seen to have any form of space suit, and have many areas of their body exposed to the open. Yet, players do not seem to be affected in any way by the opening of the airlock (and thereby being exposed to the vacuum of space).
- This level has no associated achievement for completing it.
