Any questions, comments, corrections, or contributions are welcome, my email is tarrun75(at)gmail(dot)com. Please make sure to add something related to Deus Ex in the subject line so I don't have to figure out what game you're talking about. Also, questions regarding something that's already covered in the guide will not be answered. Credit will be given to anything sent to me that I add or major corrections. For corrections, please email me only if it's something really important, something that will clearly confuse anyone reading. Before reading through this guide, keep a few things in mind regarding the ASCII throughout this guide. All of the ASCII maps have the same icons, which may or may not be obvious: -An "x" on a map is an enemy -A "J" on a map is JC -An "O" on a map means that an objective is completed there -Dots on the maps show the path something takes Legal information: This document is copyrighted Tarrun 2004-2006.

Version History: First Submission: Everything up to Hong Kong is finished. We'll call it Version 0.5. Second Submission: Version 1.0 Third Submission: Went through and cleaned up a few sections, as well as updating the list of guides that host this guide. Version 2.0 II - Weapons/Items/Augmentations/Skills 01 - Weapons: Every single weapon in the game; so many options, and so many ways to kill a man... 01.0 - Melee Weapons: Baton - A non-lethal weapon carried by riot cops and the like. Works just like the Knife except your victim doesn't let out a loud scream of pain afterwards. A good choice if you're into stealth, and it only takes up one space in your inventory. Crowbar - Works the same as the knife, except that it takes up two spaces instead of one. Dragon's Tooth Sword - A sword made from nano-technology, it's the most powerful melee weapon you can find. The sword was stolen and disappeared just before you arrive in Hong Kong, which has thrown two triads into war. To stop the fighting, you need to recover the sword and steal the technology to make it available to both triads. Knife - Your standard combat knife. Stab people or boxes with it. It takes up one space in your inventory. Most enemies carry a knife with them. Riot Prod - Similar to a cattle prod, riot police use them to subdue crowds. When you make contact with someone, they are left stunned for a short time or knocked out. This weapon is a must if you want to keep things quiet. Sword - It's not as appealing as it sounds like it should be. You first get the sword in Hong Kong, and you get the Dragon's Tooth about fifteen minutes later, which makes the sword obsolete. 01.1 - Pistols: 10MM Pistol - An average handgun, it can be equipped with a scope and laser sight. This is one of the best weapons in the game, a decent amount of firepower, a single shot to increase accuracy (in comparison to an assault rifle which fires a stream of bullets), and can fire long distances with the help of a scope. This will probably be the weapon you use the most, especially if you follow this guide. Mini-Crossbow - A crossbow that fits on your hand and can fire regular darts, flare darts, or tranquilizer darts. This is a great weapon not only because one tranquilizer dart can knock out an enemy, but also because it's completely silent and is the only weapon that works underwater. Stealth Pistol - A silenced version of the 10MM Pistol, but not as powerful. Nothing really bad about it, but I prefer not having to worry if I'll need multiple shots to kill an enemy when I can finish the job in one. 01.2 - Rifles: Assault Rifle - Your standard machine gun, it can also fire grenades (only by collecting a special kind of ammo, not LAMs or the like). In a perfect world, you'd never have to use this gun, but if you ever have to fight a group of enemies, your pistol won't be able to get the job done. Keep one of these in your inventory as a precaution. Assault Shotgun - A rapid firing shotgun, but I like the assault rifle better. Sawed Off Shotgun - A pump action shotgun, it fires relatively slowly compared to its assault counterpart. Pretty much useless when there's always a better weapon to fight with. Sniper Rifle - One of my all time favorite weapons, there's nothing like killing an enemy from hundreds of yards away. It can be equipped with a laser sight and a silencer to make it even more lethal, and while at first it's difficult to aim with your hands shaking, it's all worth it when you Advance your rifle skills. 01.3 - The BFGs: Flamethrower - It throws flame. Extremely powerful, if one burst of flame makes contact with an enemy you can consider them out of action. Just make sure you keep far away enough or have a fire extinguisher at hand or you'll go up in flames as well. GEP (Guided Explosives Projectiles) Gun - A rocket launcher, great for destroying security bots and clearing a path or gate; the GEP Gun can also fire WP Rockets, which, when it explodes, sets everybody near it on fire. A must have. LAW (Light Anti-Tank Weapon) - The most powerful weapon in the game, it can destroy anything with one shot. Unfortunately, that's all you get. The LAW is a one shot weapon, which makes it useless to carry around and then lose when you can use that extra space to carry another weapon. Plasma Rifle - Fires a stream of plasma at enemies, bosses or MIB agents carry it most of the time. It's huge though, and it won't fit in your inventory if you have a GEP Gun, which is more important. 01.4 - Grenades: EMP (Electromagnetic Pulse) Grenades - Disables any electronics within its blast radius. It will drain your bioelectric energy if you happen to be near it when it goes off. As with all grenades, EMP grenades can be planted against a wall and use its proximity sensor. Gas Grenade - When it explodes, a cloud of tear gas emits and blinds anyone in the area. Great to use against a cluster of enemies, blinding leaves them helpless to the mercy of a ruthless agent. Like EMP grenades, gas grenades can be attached to walls. LAM (Lightweight Attack Munitions) - A hand grenade, good to destroy weaker bots, clear a passage, or blow open a door. Like EMP grenades, LAMs can be attached to walls. Scramble Grenades - Disrupts bots' frequencies so that they go berserk and randomly attack anything and everything for a short period of time. Like EMP grenades, scramble grenades can be attached to walls. 01.5 - Miscellaneous: Pepper Spray - A hand held gas grenade, it can blind enemies for a few moments, enough time to get in an attack or two. I hate this weapon and have never used it. PS20 - A miniature plasma rifle, but it can only be fired once. Like the LAW, the one shot thing renders the PS20 pretty useless. Throwing Knives - The weapon of choice for ninjas, throwing knives are fun to play around with, but since you only find them in limited supply they aren't very helpful, although I have been in a number of situations where they became useful. If you find them and have the extra space, keep it around. 02 - Items: Every item in the game; everything from liquor to a fire extinguisher. 02.0 - Health and Augmentation Related Items: Ambrosia Vial - A vial of the only known vaccine for The Grey Death. Bioelectric Cell - Restores 25% of your bioelectric energy. Candy Bar - Restores 2 health Cigarettes - Injures you 10 health in the torso region. Forty - Beer, it restores 2 health, but you get drunk, meaning that everything gets blurry and your crosshairs are wobbly. Liquor - See Forty Medkit - Restores 40 health, but it can be used to heal a certain part of the body. As you become begin to master the medical skill, the amount of health restored increases. Soda - Restores 2 health Soy Food - Restores 5 health Wine - See Forty Zyme - The latest drug, think of it as alcohol minus the healing affect. While you don't lose or gain any health, it messes you up for a long time, making it almost impossible to see or attack anything. 02.1 - Equipment: Ballistic Armor - A bulletproof vest, it can be worn for a period of time before you lose it. Personally, I think it would have been better if the armor could take a certain amount of damage before losing it, but oh well. Binoculars - Standard pair of binoculars, what were you expecting? A sniper rifle or some other weapon with a scope can easily take their place. Fire Extinguisher - Extinguishes fires, great if that fire happens to be burning you to death. Flare - A flare, it can light up an area briefly. Pretty pointless since you start out with a light augmentation. Hazmat Suit - Protects JC from radiation and poison (damn greasels). Like the ballistic armor, it only lasts a set period of time. Lockpick - A cheap, one-time only lockpick that can unlock doors and other locked things. The higher your skill in lockpicking is, the fewer amount of lockpicks are needed to unlock something. Multitool - Can bypass electronic systems like cameras or security grids. The higher your skill in electronics is, the fewer amount of multitools are needed to bypass something. Rebreather - A miniature oxygen tank, it gives JC the ability to stay underwater longer than he normally can. Like the two suits, it only lasts a short period of time. Thermoptic Camo - Temporarily makes you invisible. However, should you attack someone while in this state, other enemies will know your position. Also, they can still hear JC. While this item is pretty cool if you find the right time to use it, the Cloak augmentation makes it obsolete. Tech Goggles - Night vision goggles, but they only last for a little while. There's also an augmentation that allows JC to see in night vision and sonar, so why bother? 02.2 - Weapon Modifications: Accuracy - Increases the accuracy of a weapon. Put these into your sniper rifle and pistol. Clip - Increases the clip size of a weapon. Use these on your pistol and crossbow. Laser - Adds a laser sight to a weapon. Add it to the pistol, crossbow, and sniper rifle. Range - Increases how far a weapon can shoot. Best to put into your crossbow. Recoil - Decreases the amount of recoil to a weapon, great for shotguns and assault rifles. Reload - Decreases the amount of time it takes to reload a weapon. Use it on your pistol. Scope - Adds a scope to a weapon. (scope + pistol = awesome) Silencer - Adds a silencer to a weapon. Add it to your sniper rifle. NOTE: Weapon mods can only be used for one weapon at a time, and are only useable with certain weapons. Can't put a silencer on a GEP gun for example. 03 - Augmentations: Augmentations are abilities that grant JC certain Super Man qualities, from being bulletproof, regenerating one's health, and even to being able to see through walls. 03.0 - Suggested Augmentations: F3 - Ballistic Protection F4 - Cloak F5 - Aggressive Defense System F6 - Microfibral Muscle F7 - Run Silent F8 - Vision Enhancement F9 - Environmental Resistance F10 - Regeneration! F11 - Power Recirculator F12 - Light (not optional) 03.1 - Arm Augmentations: Combat Strength - When used, you inflict more damage with melee weapons. An interesting skill, but I prefer to have its counterpart, which is... Microfibral Muscle - It gives you superhuman strength, great for entering buildings without bringing attention to yourself. This is probably the first augmentation you'll acquire, unless you forget to pick it up. 03.2 - Cranial Augmentations: Aggressive Defense System - The name says it all, sort of. This aug will actually stop missiles from reaching you, exploding them in mid-air. The more it's upgraded, the farther away the missiles explode. Spy Drone - A small drone that you can send to scout out ahead of you. It would be an awesome augmentation if it didn't drain your bioenergy so much. 03.3 - Default Augmentations: Friend or Foe Identification - You know when your crosshairs turn red or green; it's because of the handy little IFF implanted into your skull. Simply put, green is good, red is bad. It doesn't use bioelectric energy. Infolink - The infolink can transmit messages into your head and are heard by you and you alone. It doesn't use bioelectric energy. Light - Press F12 to turn on a light to see in dark areas. The only default augmentation that uses bio-energy, but it's minimal. 03.4 - Eye Augmentations: Targeting - An interesting augmentation, this gives you general information an enemies health, how much damage they've taken and to what parts of the body. Vision Enhancement - Another strange augmentation, at first this gives you night-vision, but as it's upgraded, it increases to infrared and later to sonar, which allows JC to see through walls. 03.5 - Leg Augmentations: Run Silent - Just as it implies, this augmentation makes your thumping footsteps silent when you run. Great when combined with Cloak or a thermoptic camo. Speed Enhancement - Even more obvious than the other one, this augmentation increases your speed and allows you to jump higher; a great idea, but I prefer Run Silent. I've read other Deus Ex guides that use Speed Enhancement to bypass a few sections, but I've never been partial to it. 03.6 - Subdermal Augmentations: Cloak - Acts as a thermoptic camo, it makes JC invisible to any living thing for an indefinite amount of time (or until you run out of bioenergy.). This is a great augmentation, best combined with Run Silent and a melee weapon. Ballistic Protection - Absorbs damage from bullets, great when you're stuck in a room against a boss or a group of enemies. EMP Shield - The opposite of Ballistic Protection, this protects you against EMP grenades and other energy draining attacks. A nice idea, but Ballistic Protection is better. Radar Transparency - Cloak's counterpart, this makes you invisible to all electronics; cameras, bots, et cetera. As long as you have skill points in Computers though, this augmentation isn't needed very often. 03.7 - Torso Augmentations: Aqualung - Increases the capacity of JC's lungs, allowing him to stay underwater for longer periods of times. Useful, but it isn't needed very much; there aren't enough swimming sections to make it worth it. Energy Shield - Think of it like Ballistic Protection, except resistant against plasma, electricity, and fire. I've never picked this augmentation though, because its counterpart is Regeneration. And you want Regeneration. Environmental Resistance - An augmentation that acts like a hazmat suit; it grants resistance to poison and radiation. I usually choose this augmentation over Aqualung; I've found that I use it more. Power Recirculator - When in use, it reduces the amount of bioenergy other augmentations use while they're activated. Regeneration - The best augmentation in the game, hands down. It restores your health without the use of medkits, food, or medbots; at level four, it restores forty health points per second. Synthetic Heart - Upgrades every other augmentation one more level, unless the augmentation is already at its maximum level four. Synthetic Heart can't be upgraded. 04 - Skills: Skill points are awarded for a number of different reasons, anything from completing objectives, exploration bonuses, or critical location bonuses. 04.1 - Necessary Skills: Computer - Allows JC to hack into computers and security terminals. This skill is a must and should be invested in as soon as you start the game; trust me, it's a lot easier than finding a password. Electronics - The more you put points into it, the more of a security system can be bypassed with a single multitool. Lockpicking - Exactly what it says, the higher this skill is, more of a door can be picked before having to use a new lockpick. Low-Tech - This skill deals with melee weapons; weapons like knives, batons, and swords will do more damage and increase in accuracy. I originally had this in the useless section, but when I thought about it I decided to put it here instead. Only upgrade this if the rest of the necessary skills are Advanced. Pistol - You begin the game Trained in this, and if you can scrounge up enough points to Advance it, you'll be set. Rifle - Advance this by the time you get to New York for the third time. Not only does this increase the accuracy of your sniper rifle, but it also increases how much damage is done with assault rifles and shotguns. 04.2 - The Rest of the Crap: Demolition - As this skill is increased, LAMs and other grenades do more damage, and the amount of times a grenade planted by an enemy will beep increases as well. Environmental - The more points in this skill, the longer hazmat suits, thermoptic camo, bulletproof armor, and rebreathers will last. Heavy Weapons - As you increase the level of this skill, the more damage GEP guns, plasma rifles, and flamethrowers will do. Also, the amount of time it takes to lock onto something with the GEP gun will decrease, and you'll be able to move around faster as well. Medicine - The higher the skill, the more health you'll receive from medkits; but since I didn't use a medkit throughout the entire game, it's pretty useless. Swimming - The more points in this skill, the faster JC can swim and the longer he can stay underwater. III - Walkthrough: 000.0 - Basic Strategies: 1 - Crouch and crawl all the time, you should only run when you're either being chased by someone or if you're in an area where you're one-hundred percent positive that there aren't any bad guys around. 2 - You can equip your 10MM pistol with a scope during the first mission of the game; there's one you can buy from Kaplan, one in the secret panel, and one in the second mission from Smuggler. Get one, it makes the best weapon in the game and you'll be pretty screwed if you try to follow this guide without one. 3 - Lethal take downs are loud, whether it's stabbing someone or shooting them, the victim will yell out in pain, attracting others. Always try to keep a baton, or better still, a riot prod, in your inventory. 4 - This kind of goes with the non-lethal strategy, but it's important enough to have a separate number. Normally you can't knock a Majestic 12 commando out with a riot prod, but if you hit him right where his waist should be (there's a dark line going around his body) he'll be knocked unconscious. You have to be pretty accurate though, so be careful. 5 - Save often. If you think there's a risk of being killed, save. If you enter a new area that loads, save. If you haven't saved in awhile, save. 6 - Sticking with the saving topic, if you're not sure what's behind a locked door, save and then open it up; if the contents inside are worth the amount of items used, continue on with the game. If, however, you find crap, you can always reload the game without having to redo anything. 001.0 - Liberty Island: Retake The Statue: Objectives: - Find the informant at the docks. - Rescue Gunther. - Interrogate the leader of the terrorists. 001.1 - Find the informant at the docks: Before we start, go to your skills section and upgrade electronics, lockpicking, and computers. You find yourself at the end of a dock, so walk forward to get a message from Alex, who tells you to find Paul, your brother and fellow agent. As you reach the corner, there will be a bunch of crates and boxes and a crowbar lying on the ground. Pick up the crowbar and smash open the boxes to reveal a lockpick and a pair of binoculars. Grab the lockpick and turn around. Paul should have caught up to you, and you'll have a brief conversation with him. Eventually he'll offer you one of three weapons: a sniper rifle, a GEP gun, or a mini- crossbow. Take the sniper rifle and finish up talking with Paul, and then face the Statue. You should see a set of stairs leading into the water right in front of you. Go down them and swim under the docks. There are two more boxes down there that contain a multitool and a biocell. Grab them both and head back up. Take a left and head up the dock, Paul and a security bot are doing rounds at the end. To the left of the ramp leading up is another set of boxes, which contain pistol ammo, riot prod ammo, and darts. Pick them all up, and start up the ramp. There should be a terrorist walking to the right, so follow him. Remember to stay crouched and keep far back enough so you aren't right on top of him. Head left a little so that the many crates littered around are between you and the guard. After going a little farther forward, you'll come up to a large crate with a box stacked on top of it. Lift up the box and carry it forward and left. There's a heavily shaded area, so drop the box there and break it to reveal a multitool. Pick it up and move forward. Near the end of the shaded area are two NSF talking; listen to their conversation if you want to, and then back up and go around in between the large crates. . ____ . |____| . . . ____ __xx_ ____ . |____| / |____| . / . / . / J. . . . . . . . . \ \ \ After going around, head forward. There is an NSF soldier going around an underground storage thing. Make sure he's on the left side and walking away from you. Hug the left wall, which is filled with high-stacked crates and follow behind him. When he turns right, take a left and you should see a security bot that, thankfully, isn't an enemy. There's an opening in the right, which leads to the docks. Approach the ramp leading down; there's a large crate with two NSF. One of them is stationary on the right, and the other is doing rounds around the crate. When both terrorists are on the right side, run down the ramp and jump over the left rail into the water. Swim east, following the dock up. Go under the dock when it turns and when you come out the other side find the ramp leading up, which you'll have to duck down to get through. If you look straight down, you'll notice a sunken ship. There are some weapon mods and a sawed-off shotgun inside, but at the cost of a lockpick. This early in the game, modifications shouldn't be your priority, so I'd suggest saving the lockpick (plus you have to watch your air supply). Make sure the NSF isn't looking in your direction, and then take a right. There's a small hut with two bums inside, a male and a female. Talk to the male, who turns out to be the informant. He says that he can give you the key, but only if you promise not to assassinate the leader. Pick the phrase "You can trust me", and he'll give you the key. Objective complete. 001.2 - Rescue Gunther: Now that we have the key, it's time to rescue the captured agent, Gunther Hermann. Head up the dock and look right and wait until the NSF soldier walking around is walking up what is now the right side of the crate (make sure you aren't seen). Crouch down and follow him up, but stop when he begins to turn left. Wait until he reaches the bottom left corner, and then break open the two boxes where you stopped at the top right corner. Pick up the ammo there and run back up the ramp to the bot. From there, wait for the NSF thug who's going around the underground thing that we went around before, and then retrace your steps back to the high-stacked crates. Look right in between the underground thing and the crates to find a ladder. Climb up and jump onto the metal box to get up to the next level. Jump over the gap to get to the next crate and climb up two or three more ladders. Now look left; there should be two NSF; one standing all the way down and another walking away from you. Instead, go straight and you'll see an NSF on the right with three boxes in between the two of you. Wait for him to turn around and then dash across and around the corner. This corner is similar to the one before it, except that now there's another terrorist walking up and down the walkway. Wait for him to start walking away from you and then crouch down and follow him, but stay left and head up the stairs. Head up the next flight of stairs and you'll see an entry into the Statue itself. There is a gas grenade planted on the wall to the left. Walk up to it and right click on it to disarm it, and then again to pick it up (there was a nice section devoted to disarming grenades in the training if you aren't very good at it). When you pick up the grenade, take a right and head around to the other side, and then look right again. That's, another grenade, so repeat what you did before. Continue and find the next entryway. Surprise, there's another grenade. Disarm it and then turn around and head back to where you disarmed the second grenade. Turn right (so you're facing the inside of the Statue) and you'll see a stairway going down on the left, a stairway going up on the right, and two NSF straight ahead. Crouch down and crawl to the stairs on the left, and the two NSF won't even notice you. Head down two flights and there will be an NSF walking away from you; forget about him and continue down. After two or three more sets of stairs you'll have a great view of the main room in the Statue. There's a turret right in front of you, but it will only go off if the camera in the right corner (which is blocked from your view) sees you. Peek around the corner and make sure the camera is facing a different direction, and then run under it. Take out your crowbar and break the box and pick up the lockpick. Now stand up under the camera, you should see something like this: ___________________ ___________________________________ | | ________| | | __ __ |__| | | | |__| . . . . . . . . . . . |__| | . . x __ O | | . _______ . _ | . |x|__| | | | . | | . | | | . |______| | . | | . | | | . | | | . |_______| . | | . | | | | . . | | | . | | | | x-> . . . . . . . . . |_| | . | | | | __ __ | . |______| | | |__| | ______ | |__| | __ x | | | | ______ | | |__| | | |_______________| ______ |__________ __|_ ________|_____| | | | | | | | ______J| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |___ __|______ | |__________________| Watch for the guy in the main room to pass the stairs and then, making sure the camera doesn't see you, run down the stairs and hop over the left side. If you went to soon and he heard you, back into the bottom right corner, between the stairs and the wall, and he won't be able to see you. Either way, when it's safe, head to the left and find the ATM and hack into it. After withdrawing all of the available funds, turn around and see where the one NSF is and hide in the corner until he passes by. Follow him and hide on the other side of the stairs. Now head over to the long table and pick up all of the goodies, including a LAM and a datacube with the login and password to the security network: NSF001/smashthestate. There's a doorway right near you, so stay on the left side of it and wait for the guard to pass you (make sure he's walking to the right). Once he passes you, head in the doorway and bypass the laser wires with a multitool. Now, quickly (but quietly) chase after him and knock him out with your prod. Head back up the hallway and enter the room on the left. There's an NSF sitting at a desk facing away from you, and a camera directly above you and to the right. Get under the camera and wait until it's facing left, and then sneak up behind the guard and hit him with your prod or baton. Drop your pistol on the ground and search the NSF's body, you'll find a replacement pistol and a knife. The camera should be beeping by now, so run back to the hallway and let it die down. When it's quiet, run behind the desk and crouch down. Hack into the computer terminal or use the information from the datacube (NSF001/smashthestate). Unlock and open the door and then turn off the camera. After you've done all of that, head through the now open door and close it behind you. Talk to Gunther and give him your pistol when he asks for a weapon. Satisfied with your compliance, Gunther will charge out and start blasting all of the enemies on that level before running out the front door and making contact with UNATCO. Go back into the room with the desk; collect your pistol, the weapon mod, and all of the ammo from the dead NSF. Congratulations, objective two complete. 001.3 - Interrogate the leader of the terrorists: Before we get to this part, hang around Gunther and pick up all of the ammo the dead NSF drop. After that's all done, Go to the left bottom corner of the large set of stairs and find the grate. Open it up and crawl through it until you reach an opening (if you see a desk with a datacube on it you've gone too far). Now look down and right and pick up the multitool. Return to the main area and up to the room where we disarmed the gas grenades; remember the stairs heading up that I said we'd get back to? Stay crouched and sneak up the stairs. About halfway up, Alex will call and tell you that Gunther made it to HQ, and you'll finally receive those skill points you deserve. After going up three or four flights, you'll be faced with a room with two NSF soldiers facing away from you. No need to get your hands dirty; simply stay crouched and crawl right behind them, making sure you hug the stairway you came up. Stay crouched and get to the other side of the room. As you're climbing up the stairs, Alex calls you and reminds you to take it easy. Anyway, continue up until you reach the very top of the Statue, and run up to the leader and talk to him. DO NOT KILL HIM! After talking for a bit, you'll be asked which sentence to say. Choose: "Tell me about the shipment and I'll order the troops to pick you up as a prisoner instead of a corpse." Selecting the other one causes the commander will pull a gun on you, forcing you to kill him, much to the dismay of Paul, Filben, and Alex. After talking some more, some UNATCO troops will make their way up and take control. Before heading back down, grab the Augmentation Upgrade Canister. Thankfully, the troops wiped all of the terrorists out so you don't need to sneak around anymore. Alex will tell you to return to base, but we have a few more things to do before we get there. Remember that underground storage thing that we saw before we got the key from Filben? Go back there and head down; the crate left of you when you get down has a ladder on it, so climb up it and pick up the items there, which includes a multitool. Now continue on and you'll see a forklift that's emitting EMP; touching it will drain your bioelectric energy. Instead, find the button at the back of the lift to raise the fork part, hop on it as it rises, and then jump onto the crates on the right. Smash open the two boxes and pick up the weapon mods, and then grab the small metal crate and throw it near the boxes you used to get back here, and use them again to leave. Now backtrack to where you started out on the docks, but instead head straight; there should be a few crates with a box on top of it. Jump onto the metal crate and smash open the box to get another gas grenade. Great, we're finished here. Go down the long area and take the next left and enter the UNATCO grounds. Talk to Kaplan, who offers to sell you some items that he picked off of some dead NSF. Decline and go talk to Paul, who tells you to meet him at Manderley's office for a debriefing. Sounds good, but let's load up first. Head around the left side of the building and into the fenced in area with the green storage container; the code to the container (which can be found in a number of places in HQ, but we'll hit into it now to save time) is 0451. Pick up everything inside and log into the security system with the login and password from the datacube on the table: satcom/unatco_001. Break open the box outside and grab the multitool, and then jump down and pick up the EMP grenade. Now head into UNATCO HQ, but grab the candy bar on Private Lloyd's desk. Make sure you save the candy bar for the next mission. Now walk down the stairs and through the scanner. 001.4 - UNATCO HQ: The first thing to do is to find Manderley's office; it's the room left of the break room on the second floor. His secretary, Janice Reed, will give you your computer login ("JCD", password "bionicman"). Pick up the nanokey on her desk, which is the key to the closets, and head in to Manderley's office and talk to him. He tells you to meet with Jaime Reyes and Sam Carter, and then to get back for a briefing. All right, when you leave Manderley's office, take a left and check out your office and read your mail. Once you're finished, leave and go into the large meeting room; turn right again and find the small break room where Gunther and Anna Navarre are talking. Listen to their conversation and then introduce yourself. After the scene, hack into the ATM on the right and empty it out; and then head back to where Manderley's office was. Check out the closets (courtesy of the nanokey we picked up), too bad there isn't much to take. Now keep going straight and run down the stairs. On the lower level, take the first left and then a right to meet Sam Carter, the man who runs the armory. Pick an item when he offers (I'd go for a lockpick or multitool), and go into the other room, which happens to be Anna and Gunther's office. Pick up the biocell next to her desk and the darts on the shelf on the other side of the room, and then go back up to the main area and go left. On the right is the Medical Center. Take a left and find the medbot, who can heal you as well as install that Augmentation Canister that was up in the Statue (make sure to install Microfibral Muscle). Continue exploring the area until you find Jaime at his desk. After talking to him, look behind the plant on the shelf near his computer and find the Medical Center's closet key. Keep going around to find the closet and a dead NSF; the closet has a medkit and the dead NSF has some throwing knives. Across from the Med Center is Alex's office, so head inside and talk to him. The closet in that room only has a lockpick, so I wouldn't bother opening it up. Now remember the thief Sam was talking about? Well we're going to steal from him. Across from the closet is a table with a newspaper and two soda cans on it; get in between the table and the wall and line yourself up with the newspaper. Face the wall and look straight down; you should see an option to open up a panel in the floor. Drop down into the cramped area, which has 30.06 ammo, a scope, and a key to the office doors on the second floor. Equip the scope to your pistol, and say hello to your best friend from now on. We're almost finished, so head up to the main floor and find the two offices. Unlock them and grab the items, which includes an accuracy mod, a lockpick, and a multitool. Go back to Manderley's office to get your new mission objectives, and then head back to the docks where the game began and on to the boat waiting there. 002.0 - Castle Clinton/Battery Park: Ambrosia And The Subway Hostages: Objectives: - Find the Ambrosia container in Castle Clinton. - Rescue the hostages in the subway station. - Get on a train and meet Paul in Hell's Kitchen. 002.1 - Find the Ambrosia container in Castle Clinton: Anna will run over and tell you to find a missing barrel of Ambrosia and exterminate all of the NSF taking refuge in Castle Clinton. When you ask her if there's another way in, she says she doesn't know of any back entrances, probably because she's an idiot. After you're done with Anna, run forward and find the little kid and talk to him. Give him your candy bar when he asks for something to eat and he'll tell you the code to the hidden entrance: 9183. Turn around and go up to the brown box next to the soda machine. Pick the lock and enter the code, and the machine will open up to reveal a secret passage. Enter inside and go into the room across from the entrance. Look under the small table and pick up the multitool, and then head down the stairway. Make sure that there isn't an NSF in front or to the right of you. If there are, hide back up the stairway until he starts walking away and then shoot him in the head with your pistol. Pick up the 10MM ammo and head right; under the camera is a small vent. Crawl through and climb down the ladder. Go to the very end of the vent until you find an opening the leads to a hall and another room with a desk. Wait there until an NSF walks by, and then kill him. Eventually another one will come by, so kill him as well. Don't worry if they get away and sound the alarm, if they start shooting, hide in the vent until they give up and then take a few more shots. One of them has a flamethrower, so make sure that they're both dead. Once they're both dead, go down the hall and into the room with the desk, pick up the multitool in the right corner and the assault rifle ammo on the desk. Continue left and hide behind the first big crate, and then run in to the room on the left, the Ambrosia barrel is in there along with some toxic barrels. Hide behind the large metal crates and wait until the camera in the other room is facing away from you. Pick up one of the toxic barrels next to the Ambrosia barrel (you need to use Microfibral Muscles) and carry it into the other room and up the stairs on the left. Open up the door when you reach the top and take another left and down the set of stairs. Drop the barrel in front of the door, and then get back up the stairs. Crouch down and shoot the barrel to blow open the door. Inside you'll find a number of items, including a medkit, napalm, an Augmentation Canister, and a key. To the right of the door is a security terminal, so turn off all of the cameras. We're done here, so now retrace your steps and head out of the soda machine. 002.2 - The Battery Park Subway Hostages: When you and Anna find each other, she'll question your judgment about how you dealt with the Castle Clinton situation, but congratulate you nonetheless. She then tells you that a group of NSF have taken hostages down into the subways and wired explosives around it. When the option appears, say: "I'm learning as I go." Anna will give you two EMP grenades instead of one, and send you on your way. Head left, the entrance is just north of an eagle statue and is partially enclosed; you'll know you're there when you see UNATCO troops in a gunfight. To conserve ammo, let the UNATCO guys handle the terrorists; not only will you stay out of the way and not get hurt, but with any luck, most of the UNATCO guys will be taken down, which means you can loot their bodies as well as the dead NSF. Also, if you want to be a real sadist, kill the UNATCO guys with your knife while they're fighting. Anyway, after all of the bad guys are dead, find the two boxes in the corners and bust them open to get some more ammunition. Next, find the entrance to the subway and look just left of it. There's a hatch leading down, so go down it and through the door. Climb all the way down the ladder and head straight, you may need to use your light (F12) or you could end up crawling into a wall without knowing it. Once you're at the end, take a right and follow that the rest of the way down; you'll appear right next to the hostages and the subway. Now, there are two ways to go from here: 1: If you're going for a minimum or no-kill game, crawl over to one of the hostages and talk to him. Afterwards, open the door to the subway car nearest both of you and make sure they both get on. Now, you can get on and continue with the game, but we'll pick up a lockpick first. On the right is a box, so, making sure that no one will spot you, crawl over to it and bring it back into your corner. Break it open and pick up the pick, but hide in the vent as soon as you do because someone is bound to hear you. After the heat dies down, open up the subway car again and get in. 2: If you want some extra ammo for the coming mission, take this route instead of the other one. After you talk to the hostages and let them on the car, head back into the vent and make your way down one grate, so that you can see the entire station. Open up the grate and carefully pick off every single NSF in the room with your pistol or mini-crossbow, but make sure to hide when they begin attacking you, especially since there's a guy with a flamethrower here. After everyone's dead, loot their corpses and look up the stairs; there are three more terrorists. Using the scope on your handgun, kill the three of them, and instead of using an EMP grenade on the laser sensors, move all of the TNT crates littered around the station to the far corner and then run up and get their ammo. Now head onto the subway car. 003.0 - Hell's Kitchen Part 1: The Generator: Objectives: - Question the locals about the whereabouts of the NSF generator. - Rescue the hostages in the 'Ton Hotel. - Rescue Ford Schick. - Find and destroy the NSF generator. 003.1 - Question the locals about the whereabouts of the NSF generator: Either way you handle the situation, both you and the two hostages will get off the train at Hell's Kitchen, where you need to meet with Paul. Hack into the ATM machine in the corner next to the phone and head up the stairs. Paul will appear now and he'll tell you that there's a lot of fighting in the streets and most of the civilians have taken cover in the bar or hospital. Also, if you need some extra equipment, you can always hit up his apartment in the Ton Hotel, which is where we need to go anyway. Head up the stairs and run to the end of the block, where riot cops have closed off the entrance to the NSF Headquarters. Not that it matters, but there is some 10MM ammo sitting next to one of the black and yellow markers. You can also pick up the shotgun ammo that's lying against the wall before the bar; it's pretty hard to miss. After you've loaded up, head into the bar to talk with some of the locals. When you enter the Underworld Tavern, hack into the two ATMs before continuing on to the main area. Try and talk to everyone in the bar, but there are a few people in particular that you should meet. When you find the bar itself, buy two or three bottles of beer from the bartender, but don't drink them. Instead, talk to the guy on the left side of the room, he's wearing all black and has sunglasses on; he's labeled "Pilot Guy". Offer him beer in exchange for information about random subjects like Area 51 and an arms dealer. Continue talking to him and giving him beer and you'll find out his name is Jock and he's a pilot for UNATCO. Now head to the other side of the bar and listen to the man and woman's conversation. After they finish, butt in with the comment, "Excuse me, but I thought I heard you say 'Ambrosia'". After talking for a while, the guy will tell you the code to an elevator that the NSF uses. Now head to the other room in the bar and find the Gothic looking girl, who tells you that her friend and a guy named Johnny went outside to have an argument of some kind. She's worried about her friend and asks if you'd be able to check it out for her. We're done here, so let's do that; head out of the bar and find the alley next to the two riot cops. Johnny will have the girl backed into a corner, so talk to him and try to reason with him. Choose the phrase, "You've got ten seconds to beat it before I add you to the list of NSF casualties." Sometimes you need to be forceful to get it through to these guys. He'll run away, but you can kill him if you want to, a quick jab in the back with your knife will do the trick. Either way, talk to the girl, who happens to be Sandra Renton, the daughter of Gilbert Renton, the owner of the Ton Hotel. If you keep talking to her, she'll tell you about Smuggler, the arms dealer that Jock mentioned before, and the password you need to get into his hideout: Bloodshot. If you want, go back into the bar and talk to Sandra's friend; she'll tell you about an elevator that the NSF uses. Sounds familiar. Now head out of the bar and take a left up an alley behind the bar. Crawl through a small fence and talk to the soldiers who are complaining about Paul giving them Gas Grenades instead of ammunition; and when they offer to give them to you, accept. Break open the boxes next to them and take the ammo and then run right, past the Ton Hotel, where a huge gunfight is taking place. Follow the same strategy that you used in the Battery Park situation and let the cops and terrorists kill each other, looting the bodies when everything dies down. Also, make sure that anyone who gets injured and runs away gets killed; we don't need any strays littered around Hell's Kitchen. You should pick up an assault rifle and a lot of ammo, so you'll be ready for the hostage situation in the Ton Hotel. 003.2 - Rescue the hostages in the 'Ton Hotel: When you enter the hotel, find the ATMs and clean them out. Now walk down the stairs and look left, you'll see Mr. Renton at is desk. When you tell him to get out of the hotel, he acts nervous and politely says that he wants to stay where he is; do you understand where I'm going with this? Look on the left side of Mr. Renton, if you hug the right corner you should just be able to make out an NSF uniform. Take your pistol and look through the scope and shoot him in the head. If you're going for a no-kill game, shoot him in the stomach and wait for him to run out to fight you. When he does, zap him with your prod. Now talk to Mr. Renton, he tells you that there are two more guys upstairs with a hostage each. Before you head upstairs, check in the back corner of the front desk and pick up the cash and a hotel key. Now exit the room and take a left to the elevator shaft. Drop down and break open the two boxes, and then head up the ladder. Climb up to the very top and pick up the multitool lying in the corner. Head down one level and you'll see a terrorist holding a hostage at gunpoint. There's also another NSF around the corner with the other hostage. The biggest thing you're bound to worry about is how to save the second hostage after you've rescued the first. As long as you quickly kill the first terrorist, the second one will panic and run around the corner and fire at you. If you take too long to kill him (which will happen if you try to use a knife or baton) the other NSF might decide to kill his hostage before attempting to take you out. If you're in a non-lethal mood, this sections going be a little more difficult, and I hope you still have the throwing knives that you picked up from that body at UNATCO. Creep up behind the first guy so that you've cut the distance between the two of you in half, just make sure you don't get too close or they'll kill the hostages. When you get close enough, throw your knife at the terrorist, which will stun him momentarily, so quickly run up to him and jab your riot prod in his back. If you did this right and the hostage is still alive, the other NSF will run from around the corner and attack you, but we're ready for him. Quickly close the distance between the two of you and prod him to unconsciousness. If you don't mind a little blood, then this will be a joke. Stand by the elevator doors and use your pistol to kill the first guy, and the second when he comes around the corner. Now talk to the male hostage and he'll tell you that he overheard the two NSF talking about a warehouse. Turn around and open the room nearest the elevator, it belongs to your brother. When you go inside, check the datacube on the table, he tells the password to unlock his hidden stash is a countdown from four. Now enter the corner room past the center pillar with the painting on it, you're in Paul's bedroom. Look under the nightstand for some extra cash, and then head back to the main room and open the painting. Enter the combination and the shelf will open up, revealing a command station of some sort. Look on the walls and around the floor, picking up the Ballistic Armor, ammo, a biocell, a few lockpicks, and some multitools, and then check out the datacube lying on the left of the table, which contains Paul's login and password: PDenton - Chameleon. There isn't anything important to read, but some of it can be pretty funny. Leave the hotel and head back to where we started out, the subway station. Instead of going down the stairs, take a left around a high wooden fence. At the far end of the basketball court is a bum surrounded by two thugs. A citizen in distress? Not on my watch. Run up to the two thugs and point your pistol at them, waiting for the crosshairs to steady. Once you and the gun are ready, kill the guy on the left, who is much more dangerous considering that he has a shotgun, and then the other guy with the crowbar. You shouldn't have a problem with making sure that the bum isn't killed if you don't stand around. Afterwards, talk to the bum and he'll tell you that he's a member of the mole people, and he's a little annoyed with the NSF running barrels through their home. After saying that you'd like to check it out, he gives you the password "Underworld" so that Curly, the guy who lets people in, will know to trust you. 003.3 - Rescue Ford Schick: Now get on the other side of the subway stairs and you'll be able to see the top of a stairway leading down; it's slightly left of the 'Ton on the other side of the street. Head down and press the intercom, and give Smuggler the password "Bloodshot". When he let's you in, head down the elevator into Smuggler's Lair, where you'll find an amateur security setup, the biggest problem is the security bot that will attack you if you cross the laser beams. First, get to the right corner and break the box to pick up a lockpick, and next go in the little booth on the completely opposite side of the area. On the table is a multitool, and a security grid that will disable the lasers. But why waste a perfectly good multitool, let's get wild and dangerous. Run straight through them and see what happens. Actually, this is a lot safer that it appears to be; as long as you run straight inside the next room through the door on the right you'll have no problem, maybe getting shot once. But remember that the bots' bullets don't do as much damage as normal 9MM bullets do. Anyway, talk to Smuggler, and he'll mention about how his friend Ford Schick was kidnapped by the government, and offers cheaper prices on his hardware if you rescue him. Since his items way too expensive, agree to help his friend without buying anything. Before we do that, though, head upstairs and break open all of the boxes for goodies. Run over to his bed and take the lockpick on the shelf to the right of the mirror, which is fake of course. Look behind the bed and find the keypad. Enter the code 432 (thanks to Keenan Gehman for figuring out the code) and collect the thermoptic camo, the medkit, and the clip mod (which you should put in your pistol) and then leave Smuggler's. Notice that the bot isn't an enemy any more. Before we rescue Ford, however, it's probably a good idea to visit the clinic and heal any wounds you have. If you can't find it, it's right next to the Underworld Bar, just to the right of the back entrance. In fact, you would have passed it if you didn't go through the detour through the wooden fence to get the gas grenades. Once inside, make sure that you don't have any weapons visible like in the Bar, and head to the far right corner, where a patient and doctor are arguing. *SAVE BEFORE YOU LISTEN TO THEM!* After you've saved your game, listen to the entire conversation and talk to the "Sick Looking Guy" when they've finished. Tell him, "You should be more appreciative. By helping you, this man risks his own health." The man will leave, and the doctor will be so thankful that he'll offer you the main facilities in the clinic, "the full treatment" he calls it. Accept it, and he tells you the code is 2153. Good, remember that number, and reload your game. Listen to the conversation again, but this time, decline any reward from the doctor. Now go to your notes section and click on Add Note and the surgery bay code. Sure, it's cheating, but I'm cheap. Go to the surgery bay and add Environmental Resistance from the canister we found in Castle Clinton. Heal yourself, and then leave the clinic, now it's time to rescue Ford Schick, Smuggler's friend. Leave the clinic and head down the alley that leads to the wooden fence, but stop right at the beginning and find the sewer grate. Use the key Smuggler gave you and climb down the next two ladders. When the section loads you'll see an unfamiliar uniform being worn by an armed soldier; it doesn't matter though, because we know to kill him because the crosshairs turn red. Use your pistol to take down the one guy from afar (you might have to crouch), and then immediately look left. There's another soldier that has, amazingly enough, not heard the gunshot. Shoot him in the head as well, and then get across the bridge. When you get close to the door, crouch down and open it up. Hug the left wall so you're directly behind the solider sitting in the chair. Stand up and prod him in the back. Break open the boxes in the room and make sure that you check the datacube under the desk, it gives you the login and password to every security terminal in the area: MJ12 - coupdetat. Now take a right from the room to where you killed the second soldier and log in to the computer. Turn off all of the cameras and rotate the bridge. Look across the water, there's an opening with a ladder leading down. Move so that the bridge is out of the way and aim your pistol at the solider that should be appearing at any time. After he's dead, run across the bridge and climb down the ladder. Run through the door and down the walkway. There should be a keypad, but we don't know the code. Strafe back and forth right in front of the door and eventually a solider on the other side will hear you and come to investigate, so make sure you kill him as soon as he opens the door. Through some miracle, none of the other guards have heard anything. Crouch down and get under the camera, making your way to the security terminal across from you. Turn off all of the cameras, and then crawl to the left side of the stairway. Make sure that the guard on the right of the stairs is far enough away, and drop off the side and hide under the stairs. Here's a layout of the area: _________ | __ | __________________________| | | | | |________| | | | | ________ O |__| | | | |________| . . .__._. .| | |____ _____._.__._.____|____|x_|___|_________ _________| __ | . ___ | | |__| __ .|___|| | | |__| | | x | | | |__| __ |__| . ___ | | | |__| x |__| .|___|| |_________|______________J|__|_______________|_________x| | | | || |_______________C____________| Wait until the solider to the right of you begins to walk towards the end of the stairs. Crawl up to him and prod him in the back. Now look right, if you timed this right a door at the north should be open and another guard is walking through it; follow behind him and knock him out as well. The room you're in has a catwalk above some disgusting water; it's not toxic, so jump in and break the two boxes open. Now head back out the same way you came in and get next to the door at the bottom right corner of the map. There are two guys in that room, and I finally found an easy way to kill the two of them. Equip a gas grenade and open the door, throw it at the guard sitting down, and then run to the other door leading to that room. After it explodes, run into the room and kill the two of them. Take their ammo and get the datacube on the left side of the room. Use that login and password to read the mail on the computer, and get the code to the door that led to the toxic water room. Head over to the west side of the area and use the code 007 to open the armory. Now leave and face the north room, where Ford Schick is. Talk to Ford and tell him to escape. Follow him to the ladder to complete the objective. There's just one more thing to do here. Climb up the ladder and cross the bridge again. Rotate it back to it's original place and get across to the entrance. Look over the edge to the water below. On the right is a pipe with a medkit, so drop down onto it and then down to the next one, which has an accuracy mod on it. Swim to the ladder on the left, but be quick about - the water here is toxic. Get back to Hell's Kitchen and talk to Smuggler, he'll thank you and drop his prices, but nothing he has is useful (unless you still don't have a scope on your pistol), so pass on it. Head to the Clinic and heal yourself from your swim in the water, and we're all set to finally complete the main objective. 003.4 - Find and destroy the NSF generator: Head right from the clinic and up near the 'Ton, the building on the right is Osgood and Sons. Go inside and throw the box on the crates down and break it. On the other side of the crates are three doors, the one on the left has an augmentation upgrade, so bypass the keypad and upgrade Environmental Resistance to level two. Now take the door all the way on the right and you'll come to an enclosed alley. Pick up the small metal crate and drop it near the bottom crate. Jump over the fence and look at the far end of the right wall, there's a LAM. Diffuse it before heading up the ladders. Once you reach the top, save your game before crossing the roof of the building. You should see a bunch of pillar-type things. Watch out, because there's an NSF walking around with a sniper rifle. He should be near the right somewhere, so have a sharp eye and take him out with your mini-crossbow. Once you shoot him, hide on the roof until he collapses, and then drop down and loot his body. Now head to the left where you can see a number of buildings and a few NSF patrolling. There are about five of them, all on different buildings: one on the right, one on the left near a hut, one in the center, one just to the right of the middle guy on a lower level, and one in the far background. Take them out with your pistol or crossbow in any order, but I suggest killing the middle-right guy on the lowest level first, because if you miss your chance you might be caught by surprise later on. After you've killed the four closest to you, use your sniper rifle to kill the guy in the back. Once you've finished, look to the left of you at the hut, there's some 30.06 ammo and ballistic armor. Head back up the ladder you came from and take the ladder on the right down to the fire escapes. Drop down them one by one until you reach the last one, and then jump over the railing and onto the building with the hut. Find the body of the guy you killed, and break open the box to get ammo. Climb up the ladder leaning against the billboard and get to the top of that building. Get the LAM from the down NSF before jumping on the ledge of the billboard. Once on the other side, loot the other NSF' body and cross the rooftop. Use your knife to break open the window and drop down, making sure to land on the higher level instead of the bottom of the stairs. Exit that room and take a left, break open the window and crawl through the opening. Run down the fire escapes until you can jump onto another small hut. Jump to the next building across from it and climb up the ladder. Now you're on the roof where you killed that guy with your rifle. Crouch down so that the guys on the lower lever won't see you and get the corpse's valuable 30.06 ammunition. Still crawling, get to the opposite side of the roof where the ramp leads down, but instead find the small steps behind it and climb down the ladder. Make sure no one hears you, and then climb down the other ladder. See that window/mirror? It has a durability of ten percent, so whip out your knife and hack at it until it shatters. Crouch down again and head inside to the computer; use the login "NSF" and password "righteous" (you find this out first from the male hostage in the 'Ton, as well as a few other places) and shut down the generator's cooling systems. Log out and wait around for a few seconds; the screen will start to shake and the generator will eventually explode. Get back to the roof at your leisure and talk to Gunther, who tells you that your brother Paul is a wimp and that you're wanted back at Headquarters. Now, you can take the helicopter to H.Q. if you want to, but there's a lot of ammunition and an augmentation canister here that's too tempting to pass up. But first there's the problem of getting rid of the bad guys. Head down the ramp and through the trip-wire, making sure that NSF come to take you down. Once you're sure that you have their attention, run back up and let Gunther take care of them. Not only is he invincible, but he also has a machine gun and a flamethrower. After the first swarm is finished, repeat this step until all of the bad guys, including the one guarding the front door, is dead. If you're lucky, a stray NSF will run away and Gunther will go and chase after him. This basically cuts out the step of you egging on the enemies to chase after you. Behind the bottom set of stairs is yet another ramp, so head down to find an expensive looking security setup. Go down the hallway and under the laser, there's an office with two doors leading to it. Ironically, the one on the other side of the laser is locked, while this one isn't. Once inside, get the key and break open the two boxes to get LAMs. Deactivate the cameras with the security terminal and then equip your LAMs. Throw it at the desk and quickly leave the room before it explodes. Go back in and collect your reward, an augmentation canister for Run Silent or Speed Enhancement, in the drawer under the desk. Head out the same way you came and return to the first level. Run over to the other side of the area, there are a bunch of cardboard boxes concealing another ramp. On this side of the basement, use the key you have to open up to door on the left and activate Environmental Resistance to protect yourself from the poisonous gas. Break open the boxes to get some more miscellaneous items, and then return to the main area. Get back up to the roof and click on the Black Helicopter and talk to the pilot, who happens to be the guy you met in the bar asking for beer. When he asks if you're ready, select "Let's go" and leave. 003.5 - UNATCO HQ: Because I don't feel like repeating myself, I'm not going to go through this part as detailed as I did before. Just know to visit: - The green storage container near the helipad - The offices and closets on the first two floors - Your office - The break room (ATM) - Manderley's office - Sam Carter - Jamie Reyes (medical closet and Med Bots) - Alex (secret panel) Just before you enter the building, you'll see some very pale men with black suits on leaving. Say hello to the Men In Black, who warn you not to interrogate the prisoners in the detention center. Whenever you make it to Manderley's office, you'll be asked to wait outside until Manderley finishes his meeting. Get close to the door and eavesdrop on their conversation. When they finally decide to fire Paul, the other guy leaves. Go in and talk to Manderley, who tells you that Paul failed his half of the mission, and that it's now up to you to recover the stolen Ambrosia. When he's finished, listen to Anna report on your skills; she'll praise or degrade you depending on whether or not you went in the front door and killed everyone in Castle Clinton or used the secret passage like this walkthrough describes. When you reach Jaime's office, heal yourself and install Run Silent. Afterwards, if you want to see something interesting, head through the room across from where Sam Carter is to find the detention center. Watch Simons, the man who was talking to Manderley, interrogate two NSF prisoners. After one of them refuses to reveal where and how the NSF are transporting the Ambrosia, he pulls out a shotgun and kills both of them. That's police brutality at it's finest, my friend. Once you've completed everything you need to do, head back up to the helipad and get to the chopper. 004.0 - Hell's Kitchen Part 2: The Mole People Objectives: - Locate the airfield where the NSF has moved the Ambrosia. - Locate the three missing barrels of Ambrosia. - Gain access to the 747 hanger. - Assassinate Juan Ivanovich Lebedev. First of all, let me say that most of these objectives blend together, you find the Ambrosia while locating the airfield, assassinating Juan while gaining access to the hanger, et cetera. So instead of separating the level like that, I'm separating it by areas, not that any of you really care. 004.1 - Battery Park/Abandoned New York City Subways Deja vu? You begin at Battery Park again, so run to the subway entrance and find the camp of homeless people. There's a bum walking around in a beige trench coat who will sell you two 30.06 clips for 300 credits each. Six hundred credits for two clips isn't such a bad deal, so take him up on the idea. Now find the hut with the barrel-fire, there are two bums hanging around it talking about the NSF and the Mole People. Turns out that the guy is Curly, whose name you might remember from when you rescued the bum on the basketball court. If you rescued the guy from the two thugs during your first visit to Hell's Kitchen, then you'll know that the password is "Underworld". If you didn't meet that guy, then don't bother talking to Curley. Instead, go down the subway stairs and find Harley Filben, who'll give you the code for a price. Either way, you'll get the get the code "M-O-L-E", or 6653. Enter the code in the phone booth down in the subway station and watch as it lowers beneath Battery Park. Keep going forward and climb the ladder, you'll end up in an abandoned section of the NYC Subways. When you first get there, run to the far corner of the station and find Rock, the drug dealer who kind of looks like that guy from X-Men. Save at this point (just in case), and use your prod to take him down without causing a lot of commotion. After he's out of the picture, loot his body to get some cigarettes and two vials of Zyme. If you took care of the dealer quietly, then find the junkie near the stairs, he has drooping eyes and is wearing a white shirt. When he asks for Zyme, give him a vial. He'll tell you that the keypad activates the entrance to the Mole People's city is underneath the sink in the woman's bathroom. Unfortunately, he doesn't know the code. Now find the bathrooms. There are two of them on either side of a stairway on both sides of the station. In one of the men's rooms is another junkie, who tells you that he has a LAM. Offer to trade your other vial of Zyme for his LAM and he'll agree. Now go upstairs, preferably using the stairway in the middle where you talked to the first junkie. One of the gang members will tell you that you're on the Rooks' territory. Good to know. Take a right and jump over the turnstile. Hack away the cardboard boxes to find a box with a multitool. Now head the other way to find some more Rooks, an ATM, and the gang's leader, El Ray. He'll tell you that he's willing to sell you a LAM at the steep price of 750 credits, or that you can kill the drug dealer downstairs. But the dealers already gone, so he gives you the LAM right there. Head back downstairs and get on the opposite side of the tracks where you killed Rock. Find the bum with black hair, his names Charlie and he's a Mole Person. He offers to give you the code to the woman's bathroom on the condition that you reopen the water lines. The only problem is that some debris has blocked the door and they can't get past without some kind of explosive. But we just got two more LAMs, so we're set. Head to that corner of the station (You'll need to run on the tracks to get to the very end.) and open the door to find the blocked path. Throw a LAM in and back up, and the explosion will clear the way. Run down the hallway, but do not jump over the steaming pipes, you'll take a lot of damage or possibly be killed. Instead, crawl up the pipe near the door and onto the metal tube. Jump to the next one, making sure that you jump at the last possible moment, and get on the right corner of the other one. Remember that it might take a few tries to get the hang of it. Once you get over the side and turn the two valves, talk to Charlie again, who tells you the code. Now run over to the woman's bathroom and look under the middle sink to find the keypad. Enter the code, and exit the station via the secret door in the wall. 004.2 - City of the Mole People You find yourself at the end of a long tunnel that's filled with Moles and NSF. I know it's tempting to bring out the sniper rifle and make good use of the vantage point, but there's a much better way to go about it. Climb down the ladder and crawl under the ramp on your right. Hug that low wall and crawl from ramp to ramp. Eventually you'll see a room on the right with a Mole Person in it, with a pipe dripping there too. Make sure no one's watching, and run over and talk to him, but stay out of sight while doing so. He'll tell you that the men's bathroom has a secret passage in it, and the commander, who lives a secret room at the end of the tunnel, is the only person who has the key. The only way to open his door is by finding the trick block and pressing it. Good to know. Get back to your hiding place under the ramp and continue down the tunnel until you reach the end of the left wall. When the low wall ends, wait in the shadows while the NSF walking on the other side to pass in front of you. Wait for him to walk up the wooden ramp in front of you, and then crawl over and hide underneath it. Wait for him to walk back down, and then crawl all the way up the ramp and to the enclosure on the left. Look behind the cardboard boxes and find the bottom block that you can switch. Enter the door and talk to the commander, who surrenders and tells you basically the same stuff that the bum did. Take the key from his table and exit the room; you'll notice that none of the terrorists are hostile towards you anymore. Run to the other end of the tunnel and veer left when you get the chance. Pass by the two NSF talking to each other and run up the ramp. In the top right corner is a small crawlspace under the fallen rock. Crouch down and look inside, there's an active LAM against the wall. Disable the LAM (be careful, there's no where to go if you screw up) and collect the EMP grenade and medkit. Continue on to the bathrooms (there's a multitool in the unlocked women's bathroom) and head through the men's room to take another step forward. There are two different paths to take; normally you'd need to waste multitools or lockpicks, but I'm too cool to waste items. On the right you can find the big metal crate, so activate Microfibral Muscle and carry it to the left side of the area. Drop it right next to the lasers, but make sure not to break the beams. Now run back and pick up the small metal crate (and the lockpick in the pipe next to it) and drop it next to the larger one. Hop over the lasers and pick up the small metal crate, and then throw it against the wall so you can make it over. After that, you find yourself in a room shaped like a lower-case "Q", and the guard only walks around the circle part of it. Hide under the camera and wait for the guy to pass you, and then drop him. Take the key he was holding to get through the next door. In the next room, the exit is on the other side of a small body of water being guarded by two turrets. Normally, you'd have to deactivate the laser tripwires that would set them off by bypassing the security system with multitools, but there's a much better way to go about it. Look over at the top right corner on your side of the room; there's a crate of TNT on the ground that's just begging to be blown up. Stand in the doorway and do just that, you should be far away enough not to get caught in the blast. The lasers on the other hand will be blown to pieces, allowing you to make it across without having to worry about the turrets. Unfortunately for you, that's not the only puzzle. The platforms that you have to jump on are unstable, meaning that you can't stay on one for too long. The last obstacle before the helipad is a pair security bots. As you enter the room, make sure that the EMP grenade on the left wall doesn't catch you off guard. There are two ways to pass this: you can wait for both bots to be heading away from you, and then run to the hole in the right wall. After that, make your way through the wall to the end of room. Wait for the bots to both be facing away from you again, and then leave the room. On the other hand, when I did this just now, I remembered that I still had a scramble grenade from who-knows-when. If you still have this, wait for the two bots to be near you and throw the grenade so that they end up fighting each other. Now you can simply waltz through the room without a problem. When you enter the room with the electronics on the left, look in between the two and find the datacube and multitool. 004.3 - Helipad You begin at a set of double doors, with an NSF on the other side near the opposite wall. Next to him is one of the three missing Ambrosia containers. Open up the door and look directly up, there's a camera. Kill the NSF in this room with your pistol, and be ready for another NSF to try and sound the alarm on the right. If he doesn't show or after you kill him, wait for the camera to face the left and then run to the right exit, and then open up the men's bathroom. Crouch down and crawl up to the lone NSF and prod him in the back; picking up the key afterwards. Now head to the exit on the other side of the main room, and make sure that the camera doesn't see you. Head up the stairs and immediately turn around, wait for an NSF to enter the space and then leave again. Now move down the hall and crouch down at the left corner, just past the door. When the guy comes back again, let him pass you and then prod him. Now get to the door where the NSF guy had just been, you'll notice that it's locked, but we got the key from the guy in the bathroom. Open it up and crouch down, get behind the guy at the other side of the room and prod him; don't worry, he won't turn around. Facing the left wall, look at the top right corner to find the security terminal. After shutting everything down and opening the secret room, turn around and find the switch behind the plant next to the shelf, which opens up. Put the augmentation upgrade in Environmental Resistance, now at level three, and put the range modification in your crossbow. Pick up the LAM and, if you have the room (which you should), the LAW. Now exit the room and start to go back down the hallway. Unlock the other door on this floor and climb up the ladder, and, leaving the top hatch open, wait for the NSF to walk towards the corner. Climb out and crawl after him and prod him. When you're done, head out the same way you entered, and wait for the NSF on the second floor across from you to appear. Use your pistol or sniper rifle to take him out, and then head up that way. Hack into the ATM and break the boxes in the secret room behind the bookshelf. You might want to save at this point, because there's going to be a race between who can kill each other, you or the NSF sniper. Open the door nearest to the camera with your sniper rifle equipped. Find the sniper on the highest platform in the right corner. Quickly shoot him in the head otherwise you'll take a lot of damage. After he's dead, save again and crawl onto the helipad, from here on there are two possible paths to take. 004.4 - LaGuardia Airfield 1 - On the opposite side that you entered, there's a sewer hatch in the right corner. If you jump down near the top right corner and run in between the large crates, you can make it to the hatch without being seen; just make sure that there's no one in the immediate area. Climb down the ladder and swim forward, you're going to take a bit of damage when you run out of breath, but it should be minimal. When you reach the midpoint, climb up the ladder and push the metal crate into the water, and then jump to the platform. Swim until you reach the open waters and take a breath. Dive back down and, while underneath the wooden boat hut, fire a tranquilizer dart at the NSF who's doing his rounds. When he collapses, get out of the water and loot his body. 2 - Right after you kill the sniper, crouch down and look right; there's a long hallway with an Exit sign. After you kill the two guys guarding it, hop down from the helipad and run down the hallway. Get on the elevator and head up. . | ___ . | _______ _____ . . | | .__. . . . | | |_______| |_____| . ___ .|___|.| | | | . .__. .___. . . . .| A | . . .| | | | . | | | | ___ |___| __ |__| | | . |__| |___| | B |_ | | __ | | . |__| ___ |_____| | | | | | | . | | | | |__| | | | | . | | |___| |__| | ______________| . |__| . . . _._ | J | |___| Open up the door and run down the side of the hanger. At the end of the long crate, take a right, but make sure that there aren't any bots in the area (there weren't any when I went through this, but you can't be too careful). Follow the rest of the above map, landmarks include the crate that forms an "L" shape (B) and the crate with the ladder attached to it (A). When you reach the wall, follow it up until you pass the trailers and get to the wooden shack. Look in the window and make sure that the NSF inside is at the far end of the dock and head inside. As you as you enter, run left and dive into the water, swimming under the shack. Equip your mini-crossbow and dive under again, and when the guy stops moving, hit him with a dart. Resurface on the outside and wait a few moments until you hear him fall unconscious, then get back onto the dock. Either way you get there, run over to the Ambrosia barrel to get Alex's message, and then get the key to the East gate on the metal crate, along with any ammo lying around. Oh, and that box in the water, don't bother getting, it has shotgun ammo and you should have plenty of that. When you're ready and there aren't any enemies in sight, leave the shack. _________________________________ | | | |__________________|______H ______| ______ |F____G| _______ _______ x | |______E| |D | x | ____ ______ |___|__C| | | | | | . ._._. | |____| |______| . |B A|. | ___ . .__.__.__. |___| | | |. | | | | | |___|. |__ | | | | . |_____| |___| | . | . | _______________ .________________________| | J | | | | | | | | | |_| | | |_| |_| This isn't nearly as complicated as I'm sure it looks, it's just that we're going to be having fun with some jumping puzzles. Head straight forward and take a right at the first crate, then head diagonally right and then another quick right and find the ladder. Climb up both ladders, labeled point A, and then jump from point B to point C. From there, walk to the other side of the crate, get the items in the boxes, and then jump from point D to point E. After that, jump to crate F, where I suggest you save, you need to make an almost perfect jump. From point F, run and jump off the very corner of point G to reach point H. After that, get down the ladder to find yourself at a gate being guarded by a lone NSF. When the time is right, quietly get down from the crate and prod him, and find the key that he was holding. Use the key you got in the wooden shack on the black box on the right to open the gate. Run over to the left side of the building and open the set of double-doors without standing directly in front of it. Peak inside and check to see if there's an NSF is standing at the top of the stairs across the room. If he is, wait outside until he walks away, and then crawl over to the far right room on the lower level (the kitchen). There's an NSF standing by the counter facing away from you, so sneak up behind him and knock him unconscious with your riot prod. Now crawl to the opposite side of the room and hide behind the stairs. Find the loose brick against the wall and press it in to open a secret panel. Inside is a key to the barracks' dormitory, a lockpick, a scope mod, a LAW, and various clips of ammunition. Leave the secret room and wait behind the stairs. Peak out and look for the NSF on the second level; if you can see him across from you, hang around until he stops at the top of the stairs again. When he begins walking away, crawl up the stairs and knock him out. The second room on the left is the dorm room, so unlock it with the key you found in the hidden room and head inside. There are four footlockers; the only two worth checking out are the two near the door. The one on the left is unlocked and contains a datacube with the security code to the hanger, while the one on the right has a ten percent lock strength and contains a LAM. Return to the main room, the door on the left is the door that leads to the hanger. There isn't much else to do in this building, so head through using the code from the datacube. Inside the hanger, run down the ladder and towards the front of the jet, and eventually you'll receive a message from Paul, who tells that all of the NSF in the area were told to stand down. But wait, that means... Right, Paul's a terrorist. Talk to him and he'll try to convince you to join him in his quest to save the world from the government, who's responsible for manufacturing the Grey Death virus. When he's finished, enter the jet. Inside the 747, find the stairs leading up and get the nanokey in the right corner. Then head down two floors to the cargo hold, where the final Ambrosia barrel is, along with an Augmentation Canister, except we don't know the code to release it. Head back up to the main level and find the door leading to the private quarters in the back. Unlock the door and find Lebedev in the last room. Before talking to him, look under his bed to find the datacube with the code to the Augmentation Canister. Go back and get it, and then return to Lebedev's room. From here, you have four different ways to complete the mission: 1 - Kill Lebedev. 2 - Don't kill Lebedev, and let Anna finish him off. 3 - Kill Anna but not Lebedev. 4 - Kill everyone. If you kill Lebedev, Joseph Manderley, Anna, and Gunther will be pleased with you; if you let Anna kill him, Alex and Sam Carter will support you. Also, if you talk to Lebedev to the end of the conversation (when Anna interrupts and starts shooting) you get a few skill points. 1 or 2 - If you plan on taking paths one or two, talk to Lebedev, who tells you that UNATCO doesn't approve of killing unarmed prisoners. After some more chitchat involving Paul and your family in general, Anna joins you and tells you to execute Lebedev or leave the 747 and get to the chopper waiting for you. Pick one, and head off to the helipad. 3 or 4 - If you think Anna has had enough time on earth, plant a LAM next to the bathroom on the left before talking to Lebedev. When Anna comes into the room, run away and let the LAM take her out. Talk to Lebedev before leaving the 747 and getting back to the airfield. The mission's technically over, but there are a few things we still need to do. Take a left and follow the wall, use the key you got from that one NSF to open up the doors under the security towers and get all of the items. Once you reach the helipad, talk to Gunther before continuing to loot the towers. In the one in the left corner of helipad there's a GEP Gun, so make enough room, eight squares making a rectangle, to fit it. Drop your stealth pistol if you need to, but make sure you keep your baton or riot prod. Also, you should have about 3500 skill points, so upgrade in either Lockpicking, Electronics, or Rifles. Me, I'm becoming advanced in rifles, but the other two will get there in due time. When you're finished, talk to Jock in the helicopter and leave the airfield. 004.5 - UNATCO HQ: Same old, same old... Make it a point to visit: - The green storage container near the helipad - The offices and closets on the first two floors - Your office - The break room (ATM) - Manderley's office - Sam Carter - Jamie Reyes (medical closet and Med Bots) - Alex (secret panel) There's a repair bot in the green container outside, so fill up your bioelectric energy there. Also, make sure to visit Manderley's office first because Janice asks you to find Jaime and tell him that Walton Simons is looking for him. Depending on what happened on the 747, Manderley will either be pleased, angry, or furious with you, but he gives you your payment anyway. In the break room you'll find Jaime and Simons already talking, so when they're finished talk to the good doctor to receive your skill points. Also, check under the desk in your office, there's a weapon mod down there. Install Ballistic Protection when you get to the medical center, and put any new augmentation upgrades in that until you get Regeneration in the mission after this one. Is there anything I missed? Anyway, when you go back to the chopper to head off to Hong Kong, Jock tells you that your brother's in New York and he's in trouble. 005.0 - Hell's Kitchen Part 3: The NSF Distress Signal Objectives: - Investigate the captured NSF base to see if Paul is telling the truth. - Send the NSF distress signal from NSFHQ. - Meet Paul and help him leave New York. 005.1 - Investigate the captured NSF base: Climb down the ladder and go through the open window to get into Paul's apartment. Talk to your brother, who's sitting in the main room, and he tells you that you have to help him send a distress signal to the other rebels. Realizing that you're unsure of him, he tells you that he has proof of UNATCO's foul intentions in the basement of NSFHQ. Don't forget to look the secret bookshelf before leaving, there's an augmentation upgrade as well as multitools and lockpicks. Head down to the first floor of the Ton, and in the office you'll hear an argument between Gilbert Renton and his daughter Sandra. Drop all of your weapons except for your knife, and then talk to Gil. Give him your knife when he asks for protection from Jojo. Now, pick up all of your weapons and replace your knife with the baton, I hope you still have it. Wait around a few moments for Jojo Fine to come downstairs, and get right behind him while he's talking to Gil. As the three of them are conversing, steady your crosshairs, and when Gilbert says, "That's it, I've had it", kill Jojo. Gilbert celebrates killing Jojo and his actions convince Sandra to hang around the hotel instead of running away. There's nothing really important to do at Smuggler's or in the Underworld Bar, so immediately head to the NSF base. After the cutscene with the UNATCO trooper, get behind him and knock him out with your baton or prod. Now continue on and the new area will load. Run up to the third floor of the base and enter the room with the Med Bot. Use the button in the right corner to turn off the gas in the next room, and then enter it and traverse the path to the security terminal. Open up the secret hatch and head back down to the first level where the ladder to the basement is. In the first room, take a left, where you'll find an elaborate security setup, but we're not going to be using any multitools. About halfway down that hall, right before the crates, is a small opening in the bottom right corner; when you're ready, run through the lasers and crawl into that space, it's helpful to activate Ballistic Protection right around now. Crawl to the end and wait for the alarms to die out, and then enter the next room on the left. Over the years, I've named this room the Turret Room, so take a guess what kind of traps are set up. If you look to your left when you first enter the room, you'll find some small crates and a medkit, along with the security terminal. Pick up two of the small crates and stack them on top of each other right next to the lasers; then make a jump over, it might be close. On the other side, pick up the crates and bring them over to the next set of lasers and repeat the strategy. But before jumping over the crates, make sure to blast open the door with a rocket; I only say to use a rocket because if you don't make the jump and set off the alarms, you can still run to the next room without having to worry about picking a lock. And plus, there are GEP rockets in the closet on the right of that room; you might have equip Environmental Resistance to avoid the gas. Then leave through the door on the left. This is the last hallway in the area, which means that this is the last puzzle, but it's also one of the most complicated. Use your multitools to disable the security grid before the trip wires, but you'll find that only two of the dozen lasers were disabled. Crawl underneath the first set look to your left, there should be cardboard boxes and TNT crates. Pick up a TNT crate and drop it (carefully) on top of the metal crates. Back up and shoot it, the blast should destroy most if not all of the lasers, making it easy to get through. Break open the box on your right to get your multitools back, and then head through the door. In this room, fire a rocket at the door to the left, and go inside and around the computer terminal to find all of the information Paul was talking about. You may also notice that the otherwise locked cabinet was blown open, so you can read the datacube inside as well as take the weapon mod without wasting lockpicks. On top of that cabinet is the information you'll need to send the distress signal, which Paul tells you once you read the datacube. Go back into the next room and up the staircase and you'll find yourself back outside. I've found that the best way to go through this level is by taking out your baton or riot prod and sneaking up behind the UNATCO troops to knock them all out when no one else is looking. It takes patience, because you have to make sure that no one sees you, but it's well worth it. There are usually two or three guys on each level; none of them are hiding in bathrooms so what you see is what you get. However, there's one trooper outside who's near a side door on a balcony, it's in the same relative location as where the mirror was in the generator building, it's strange how alike the two are. Once you make it past the grounds and first level it becomes a lot easier, and even if you are seen you can always hide for a minute until the heat dies down. By the way, on the second floor, there's a room filled with computers and two UNATCO troops, it might be difficult to knock them out without being shot so block the door with something lying around: a crate, barrel, or TNT if you want to get sadistic. 005.2 - Send the NSF distress signal from NSFHQ: Once you're on the top level and have taken the last two guys there out, head into the communications room, pick up the LAM in the corner, and log into the computer that the datacube gave you: "MCollins" - password Revolution. Rotate all of the satellites and open the door, and head into that room and log into the second computer with "Napoleon" and the same password. When you log out, you'll get a message from Paul telling you that the signal worked. Leave the communications building to get a message from Walton Simons, who tells you one of two things: either that he's ordered the troops to kill you because he doesn't "have the patience to wait for one of those damn killswitches to work." If you already got rid of everyone, however, Simons tells you that you're going to die in twenty-four hours because of the killswitch. 005.3 - Meet Paul and help him leave New York: If you knocked everyone out, then stroll back to the Ton and meet with Paul. If you decided to be daring and take on all of UNATCO's finest, then get your machine gun ready and come out shooting. There really isn't a strategy here, just make sure that you always have control of the higher levels so that you can shoot and hide. Either way, you will eventually be in Paul's apartment. When you do speak to him, JC is about to help him leave when Men In Black raid the hotel. Paul selflessly gives you the code to the subway gate and tells you to leave, but you end up in the same place no matter what. If you try to escape, you end up in Battery Park where Gunther and Anna are waiting for you, or fight the MIB. In both situations, you can't escape anywhere and there are an infinite number of enemies, so it's pretty pointless either way. If you want Paul alive, then use the door to leave the apartment; although I usually let the MIB "kill" me to save time, you can let Paul take care of everyone and have him lead you to the subway, but then you have to fight Anna and Gunther. Unfortunately, even if you kill Anna, Gunther is invincible so resisting is basically a waste of time and ammunition. 006.0 - Majestic 12 Facility: Escape from UNATCO Objectives: - Find your brother and access information in his datavault that Tracer Tong will need to defeat the killswitch. - Find your equipment that was taken from you. - Escape from the Majestic 12 facility. - Find Anna Navarre's killphrase. - Escape from UNATCO and go to the helipad. 006.1 - Find your brother and access information in his datavault: Before we can meet Paul, the first objective is pretty apparent: escape from your cell. A few moments after the game loads, Anna visits you and asks about the killswitch. When JC asks what happened to Paul, Anna replies with "The same as anything that malfunctions, the same as you!" After she leaves, make your way over to the door and someone named Daedalus will contact you; saying that he needs you to escape and can cut the power to your cell. Soon after, the power will go out and the door will open part of the way, so crawl under it to get out. Still crouched, head over to the box and pick up the baton; wait until the Majestic 12 gets up and starts walking away, and then hide under his desk. When he comes back around and begins down the cellblock, follow behind and knock him out. Pick up his pistol and read the datacube on his desk, which contains the code to the detention center, 4089, and each individual cell, 4679. Go back down the cellblock and open the two cells on the right, one contains a medbot and a dead NSF who has a few lockpicks, and the other has a POW named Miguel, who, besides giving you a medkit and asks if he escape with you, tells you that "You're definitely not the only prisoner, I heard noises down the hall." Speaking from experience, if you tell Miguel to do anything but wait there, he will die and you might take some damage; and that's not taking into account the fact that he won't be able to follow you in grates and the like. Lastly, in the main area of the room there's a file cabinet, so open all of the unlocked drawers to get a multitool and some ammo; don't waste lockpicks on the locked ones. Once you've completed that, run to the right corner of the room and hide under the security camera, and then run over to the door, unlock it, and get out. After exiting the detention area, Daedalus will contact you again and tell you that Paul is in the medical center, either alive or dead depending on how you played the last level, and that all of your equipment is in the armory to the south. Right under your feet is a grate, so open it up and crawl down; take a right and follow the path north, taking another right when the path dissects. Eventually, Daedalus will tell you that you're underneath the Nanotech Lab, and the vent ends behind the desk of a Man In Black. Wait for him to get up before climbing out, and crawl to the long table near the windows on the opposite side of the room. Near the door is a button that opens up the cages in the next room, so release all of the greasles, who begin attacking the scientists, and more importantly, the MJ12 and MIB. Return to your hiding place in the grate and let the troops fend off the greasles, and if it works out as well as it did for me, then the MIB will take out the last greasle before being knocked out by all of the tranquilizer that was shot at him. If he doesn't collapse, then wait for him to begin to return to his desk and knock him out with the baton. DO NOT SHOOT HIM! Men In Black explode when they die, but not when they're knocked out, which means that you can only loot their corpses when they're unconscious. And this MIB has a key to the file cabinet in the room, which contains multitools, lockpicks, and a datacube with the logins and passwords of UNATCO personal. Hack the MIB's computer and unlock the Augmentation Canister's holding, and then leave the room, making sure there aren't any stray greasles, and hide under the camera until the medbot gets close enough to install the Augmentation, Aggressive Defense System. Leave the Lab and take a right, but stop before you get to the office, or else the MJ12 will spot you. Listen to him talk to the secretary, and when he finishes, he begins his route down the hall. Head back towards the Lab, but instead, hide behind the set of pipes on the right. When the guard passes you, follow behind him and knock him out. Return to the desk and attack the secretary with your baton, she has a prod but doesn't use it, so this shouldn't be a problem. Go up the staircase on the left and knock the guard out, and hack into the security there (MJ12 - password Invader) and turn off the cameras, making sure not to open up the doors that contain the karkians. Backtrack to the office and head up the staircase on the right, unlock the grate, and then crawl down it to reach the Medical Center. If Paul is alive, he'll tell you about killphrases, which is the mech's equivalent to killswitches, except instantaneous. And since Anna is out on a witch-hunt to kill you, knowing her killphrase would be a good idea; Paul even tells you that her killphrase is stored on two computers that have a login of "Demiurge" with the password "Archon". Daedalus rings in and informs you that he wants at least one of you to escape, and that the code to the exit is 1125. Good to know, but we're not finished yet. 006.2 - Find your equipment that was taken from you. Climb through the grate again and retrace your steps back to the Lab. Use one of the grates there to crawl to the Command Center and use your mini-crossbow to take out all of the guys and dogs, there are four guards and two dogs. Take all of the weapons and turn off the cameras using the security terminal in the room. Now head through the doorway that's labeled "Detention" and run past the cellblock to reach the Robot Maintenance area, which leads to the armory. The Robot Maintenance area is probably the most difficult section of this level; there are a lot of guys that are equipped with powerful guns, and they have the advantage of controlling the upper level. When you first start out, hide behind the crates in front of the entrance until the guy on the bottom floor begins walking away from you. Activate Run Silent to catch up to him and knock him out, then backtrack and run halfway up the stairs to the left. Once at the middle part, wait for the guy with the sniper rifle to pass you, and then continue the rest of the way up; just make sure to duck once you see him or he'll attack you. Wait a few more moments for the guard to walk past the crates before following him. After you reach the far end to the north, hide between the crates and robots until the guard at the entrance near you to appear; when he walks away turn on Run Silent and knock him out before he reaches the stairs, don't worry about the sniper rifle guy. Continue upstairs and hide in front of the desk, and when the guy behind it starts walking either way, take him out with your baton. Continue to explore this area and find the security terminal to reverse the AI of the bots. This causes the one bot on the top floor to activate and start walking around, so you won't have to worry about that guy with the sniper rifle for very long. Watch him try to take on the bot if you want, and then continue to the final part of the room where one more soldier is sitting at a desk. Crouch down and hug the right wall until you get behind him, and use your baton to knock him out. Read the datacube on the table to find out the code to the armory - 2971, and then head downstairs to the south to reach it. There are two very large bots guarding this area, so wait until one of them passes by the entrance before venturing out. Stay behind it until you find the door to the armory, use the code to open the door and immediately attack the guy sitting at the desk with your baton, who, instead of counter-attacking, tries to set off the alarm. Once he's out of the picture, run upstairs and turn off the two bots and the security camera. From here on, it's Christmas, so drop any items that you don't need: stealth pistol, gas grenades, et cetera, and reclaim your items. Make sure to use one of the boxes to reach all of the stuff on the top shelf, and make sure that you pick up the two weapon modifications upstairs; one of them, the silencer, should go into your sniper rifle. Guess what? We're finished, so, if you want to, head back to the detention center and pick up Miguel and tell him to stay close, and then head out via the door in the Command Center. Shoot the guy sitting at the desk with your pistol and continue on to UNATCO HQ. 006.3 - Find Anna Navarre's killphrase: I'm not sure whether or not someone else tells you about Anna's killphrase if Paul is dead, but I'm certain that you can still get it no matter what. It's stored on two computers, one is Anna's personal computer near the cellblock where Simons "interrogated" the two NSF, and the other is on Manderley's computer in his office. When the game loads, run down the hall and to the door that's guarded by a lone UNATCO troop on the other side. If he doesn't see you, open the door and follow him up the ramp to the Medical Center and knock him unconscious, but if he does you can shoot him in the face when he opens the door. Run out the other side and tell Miguel to wait there if he's with you. Continue to the Medical Center and find Jaime Reyes near the medical closet, when he asks what he should do to help you, choose "Stay here. I could use an ally inside UNATCO"; you'll regret not doing so later on in the game. Pick up the Augmentation on the counter and have a medbot install Regeneration, and then run across the hall to talk to Alex. If you killed Anna at Battery Park or on the 747, he'll hand you the key to the exit, but otherwise he'll be too afraid of what would happen if someone found out. Before leaving here to get rid of Anna, check the secret room under the floor to get some cash. Now head to the armory, but don't talk to Sam. Instead, wait in the corner until the UNATCO troop who's walking up from the cellblock passes you, and then knock him out with your baton. Now go back and talk to Carter, who insists on staying at UNATCO to purify it; however, he lets you into the armory as a sign of friendship. Besides the assortment of ammo, there are also a few weapon mods and an augmentation canister, which will bring your Regeneration up to level two. Don't forget to replenish you bioenergy in case it's low. Leave Carter and check out Anna's computer across the hall; use the Demiurge/Archon combination to log in and find parts two of two of her killphrase: "Woman". Get back to the main area on the bottom floor and go into the men's bathroom. Knock out the guy standing in front of the mirror and head upstairs, but DO NOT GO UP TO THE FIRST FLOOR. That's where Anna is, and we don't want to instigate anything prematurely. Back to where I was, check out the meeting room, there are two guys sitting there - take them out with a shot in the head each. If you did this efficiently, then no one will come to investigate. Continue to the break room and knock out the guy watching TV, and then talk to Shannon, who confesses to be the thief that's been stealing weapons from the armory; and what'd you know, they've been storing all of their findings in a secret panel under Alex's floor. If you want to listen to an extra conversation, talk to Carter again and tell him about Shannon. Now go to Manderley's office and you'll interrupt him trying to prevent himself from being demoted by Simons, who's pretty pissed - or at least as pissed as you ever see a cool-cat like Simons get. But don't let Manderley live just because you feel sorry for him, if you start to leave his office he'll try to kill you in an attempt to save himself, so take care of him while he's still a good guy according to your crosshairs. Before leaving, though, log into his computer with Demiurge/Archon to receive the first part of Anna's killphrase: "Flatlander". We're ready to beat Anna. Run up the stairs and your battle should go something like this: Anna: I shall have you kill you myself. JC: Take your best shot, Flatlander Woman. Anna: How did you know? When Anna's dead, visit the office on the right and knock out the trooper who managed to miss all of the commotion going on outside of his office, and then return to Alex to get the key to the front door. If you have Miguel waiting by the Medical Center, go and retrieve him and tell him to follow you. Now exit UNATCO, but you'll have to get past Scott and Sergeant Lloyd, but I'm sure it won't be too much of a problem. When you go to leave through that retinas- scanner door, let Scott come to attack you, but shoot him in the face as the door is opening; with Lloyd, just baton him like you've done every other guy sitting at a desk. There's only a multitool in the green storage container, so talk to Jock, who was also contacted by Daedalus, and head off to Hong Kong, but not before Miguel thanks you. Sure, you don't get anything for rescuing him, but isn't the knowledge that you did a good deed enough of a reward? 007.0 - Secret Majestic 12 Helicopter Base: Caught! Again... Objectives: - Deactivate the weapons lock on Jock's helicopter. 007.1 - Deactivate the weapons lock on Jock's helicopter: Turn around and go down the grate; follow that path and take the first left. Open up the grate and get into the munitions room; take all of the weapons except for the rockets on the table and use the nanokey you find to unlock the door, but leave the same way you came in. Continue down the vent and take the next right and you'll find a few large tanks. Make another right and follow that path the rest of the way, and then make the first left you come to. The vent ends on the second level of a break room where a bunch of MJ12 are hanging out; use the beds as cover from being spotted by them or the camera in the corner. Unlock the third locker and take the key to the Flight Deck, and then exit the room the same way you came. When you reach the intersection, take a left instead of returning the same way you came; drop down onto the stairs and crawl down. Take the small crate on top of the big one off and drop it off to the side, making sure not to make any noise, of course. Use Microfibral Muscles to pick it up the large one and carry it up the stairs and to the right, and then drop it past the doorway to the helipad. Across the helipad is a ladder, so climb it - but only hang at the top and aim at the two guys standing on the roof. Shoot the guy holding the GEP gun first and then take out the one with the assault rifle - in that order, for obvious reasons. Now run back to the flight deck and turn off the weapons lock. Jock calls you and says that he's going to wreak some havoc, so run down to the helipad to watch the show. When you get inside, pick up the large crate you left there and block the doorway so the MJ12 troops can't attack you. Now run to the other side of the helipad and hide behind the tanks left of the ladder. Equip your GEP gun and fire a rocket at the bot nearest you, and then the other at the far end of the area. Once both bots are destroyed, run down the stairs near the doorway and pick up those rockets that were left alone in the beginning. Now head to the southern most part of the helipad and crawl under the debris to the elevator. Update: As I'm rereading this thing for version 2.0, I realize that I may have gone overboard on the whole no killing thing, and that the damn strategy won't work if you don't have Microfibral Muscles. So here's the alternative route: Instead of taking the first left that leads to the second floor with the bunks, take the one right after that, and you'll appear at a grate overlooking the first floor. From here, you have a great view of all of the guards inside (about six). Take your pistol or mini-crossbow and pick them off one at a time. After that, run up to the top floor and enter the unlocked room on the right; there's a security terminal that will shut off all of the cameras. Now follow the rest of the guide, starting at, "Now run back to the flight deck and turn off the weapons lock." 008.0 - Hong Kong: The Dragon's Tooth Sword: Objectives: - Find and examine the Dragon's Tooth Sword as proof regarding whether or not Maggie Chow is telling the truth. - Demonstrate Maggie Chow's guilt by showing Max Chen the sword. - Have Tracer Tong deactivate the killswitch. - Get the ROM-encoding for the Dragon's Tooth from the Versalife Labs. 008.1 - Find and examine the Dragon's Tooth Sword: Jock tells you that he used to drop Paul off in a compound on the east side of the market, so head east as far you can until you come to a big red compound. On the east side of it is a man carrying a shotgun, talk to him and he tells you that his name is Gordon Quick, the leader of the Luminous Path. Before you can meet with Tracer Tong, you have to earn the triad's trust, so Gordon sends you to Tonnochi Road to find The Dragon's Tooth Sword, which was stolen from the Red Arrow by a woman named Maggie Chow; her blaming the Luminous Path has caused the Red Arrow to wage war against them. Turn around and head back the same way you came; near a club called the Lucky Money is a sign reading "Tonnochi Road", so follow it. On Canal Road, run down the street and jump across the gap where the bridge collapsed. On the other side of the bridge a path that leads to Tonnochi Road. A Luminous Path member runs up to you and says that Maggie Chow is a liar, so find the hotel and go up the elevator on the left. When you reach the top floor, the maid talks to you and says she'll show you the way. Knock her out before she leaves the room, and then head left to find Maggie. She tells you that the Luminous Path is lying, and that Paul was helping her when he got captured. Maggie says that there's evidence in the police station back in Wan Chi that proves her innocence, and you'll find that obtaining this information becomes one of your secondary objectives. Leave Maggie and head up the stairs; Maggie's room has a datacube on it that mentions her two favorite books: Tai-Fun and Insurgent. The next room on the right is a meeting room, and the datacube on the table mentions that Maggie changed her password, so it's not "Tai-Fun" anymore. I wonder what it could be then... In the back of the meeting room, use the login and password "MChow" and "Insurgent" to turn off the cameras and unlock the door. Head back to where the elevator is and continue left; click on the paper lantern in the corner to open up the secret door. Crawl down the hall and into the large room, and in the back left corner is a computer; use the same login and password to open up the glass case where the Dragon's Tooth is. Tracer Tong contacts you here, and tells you to show Max Chen, the leader of the Red Arrow, the sword; he's probably at the Lucky Money. Backtrack all the way to Wan Chi and find the police station; fire a shot into the door to get their attention. When the cop opens the door, shoot him in the head and do the same with the other guy in the computer room. Enter the code 87342 to open the vault and, besides looting the place, read the datacube against the wall to prove that Maggie is involved deeper in Red Arrow affairs than she let on. Now run down the steps near the loading point of the canals to enter the Lucky Money. 008.2 - Demonstrate Maggie Chow's guilt by showing Max Chen the sword: When you enter the Lucky Money, run past the store and talk to the two girls sitting in the corner; they ask if you'll pay for them to get it. Because you're a nice guy, cough up the forty credits and follow behind them as they enter. Talk to some of the people if you want, there are some strange characters hanging around; the pair called "seductive woman" and "nervous woman" fit into that category. Also, on the top floor are some Russian sailors who say one of the more memorable lines in the game: "I spill my DRINK!" On the second floor, talk to the bartender to have a conversation about the local politics, and then go behind the bar; besides the back door there's some cash on a ledge near the liquor that will reimburse you for letting the two girls in. Down the stairs in the back is a door that leads to a meeting room behind the main dance area. Continue through the pond area to talk to Max, and he agrees to quit hostilities with the Luminous Path until he completes an investigation. Just when you think everything's fine, Majestic 12 attacks the club; here's where you first meet the MJ12 Commandos, who can seriously cause you pain with those rocket launcher things they have. Just let the Red Arrow security take them all out and you won't even take damage. And now it's time to break the law, but the rewards are well worth it. Just be careful, because you WILL be shot at. On the second floor, in the corner, is a stairway that leads to where you pay for admission. Using the Dragon's Tooth, kill both the bouncer and the woman, blow up the safe in the wall with a rocket, and then loot the bodies. There's two hundred dollars in the safe and about eight on the woman, and you get your rocket back from the bouncer. If the Hong Kong police aren't out to kill you by now, they will be soon. Start to leave the Lucky Money and break the glass to the convenience store. The alarm sounds, so take out the police before hacking into the security and turning off the camera. Log into the computer and open up the vault for another couple hundred credits: you've just earned more money than you did at UNATCO - it seems that crime does pay. 008.3 - Have Tracer Tong deactivate the killswitch: Leave the club and return to the compound, where a pleased Gordon Quick tells you the code to the compound door - 1997. Head through the building and down into the main area; on the other side of the room is a large scroll hanging on the wall with a keypad next to it. Enter 1997 again and jump into the passage and down the stairs. In the room on the left is Tracer Tong, who tells you that you're going to owe him favors if he deactivates your killswitch, and when you agree he tells you to get on the platform below. Continue straight and down to the left to reach the area, and after being electrocuted for a minute, Tong tells you that your safe from the killswitch and to return upstairs. 008.4 - Get the ROM-encoding for the Dragon's Tooth Sword: Tong tells you that although the temporary peace between the triads is a positive, the truce won't last when the sword technology is still up for grabs. He says that Versalife originally sold the technology to the Red Arrow in the first place, so if someone were going to try and make the sword available to both triads, then that would be a good place to start. And guess who gets to be the garbage boy? You guessed it, stealing the sword's ROM- encoding is the first of many favors to repay your debt. On a final note, Tong mentions that the code to the Versalife elevator is 06288, and a man named Hundly will allow you to enter the labs - for a price. Before leaving the compound, check around Tong's lab, Alex (and Jaime if you told him to meet you in Hong Kong) is hanging around as well as some ammo and a repair bot. Do you know where the Versalife building is? You should, considering you've passed by it at least six or seven times by now. When you went to the Lucky Money, did you see an elevator at the bottom of the first set of stairs? That's the Versalife elevator. Inside, talk to the receptionist and then head up the stairs. There are three ways to get the elevator code's labs. 1 - Pay Hundly two thousand credits to get the code. 2 - Kill Hundly for the office worker on the third floor. 3 - Hack into a computer and create a fake pass yourself. Obviously, number three is the easiest if you can hack, and killing Hundly isn't a big deal; either way you'll eventually get the code 6512. Head up to the third floor and use the elevator to get to the labs. When the doors open the supervisor warns you to be careful not to disrupt the work going on, but what does he know? There are three people in this area that you're going to need to kill: the supervisor, an MJ12 commando, and a trooper with a GEP gun. Kill them in any order, but remember that commandos can be knocked out with a prod right in their back. Once the three are disposed of, run up the stairs to the right and head left to find the armory. Use the security terminal to shut off the cameras and, more importantly, open up the secret stairway near the statue that appeared in the introduction of the game. Run down there and end up in the two-story area. There's another guy with a GEP gun on the second floor, so knock him out while he's still a friend; make sure that the guy walking around the level two walkway doesn't see you, and getting rid of him is a good idea as well. Now head down the ramp, Tong tells you that the ROM-encoding is in this room, but there's something we still need to do before that. Down the hallway is a laboratory, and directly underneath the door is a room with three augmentation canisters. Use the computer on the left to open everything up, and the medbot on the right can install the two you don't have: Cloak and Vision Enhancement. Now go back to the room with the ROM-encoding and use the elevator to get to the top where the computer is, and hack it so you can download the ROM. Tong congratulates you on your success, and tells you to go to the temple near the compound, where the Dragon Heads are having a meeting. Make your way back to the elevator; those guys with the rockets would be a real pain if they were still alive, but now it's a breeze. Once you're back at Versalife, the entire security team will be on you faster than flies on crap, so you need a good plan ready. Look over the balcony near the elevator and let the security see you, shoot one of them if you have to, and they'll begin to ascend to the third floor to ambush you. Wait a few moments until they've reached the top of the third floor stairs and then run to the back of the office area and find the ventilations shaft, it's in the back left corner if you're coming from the elevator. Fall down the shaft, you'll take a little damage in the legs, but that's nothing Regeneration can't fix. Climb out of the shaft and crawl down the far left side so that the office workers don't see you; some of them have pistols and are looking for a way to get a premature raise. Once you're past that, run into the main area and activate Cloak, and continue to the elevator. Find the temple near the compound and enter it to witness the official peace announcement between the Dragon Heads, who offer to buy you drinks at the Lucky Money after you see Tong. Head over to the compound and Tong will tell you that since Paul failed to bring some of the Gray Death virus and Ambrosia for him to examine (which was your fault, by the way) he hasn't been able to study it in hopes to develop a cure. That's where you come in; Tong gives you a new assignment to enter the level two labs in Versalife and find information about the virus structure that he can use. 009.0 - Hong Kong: The Universal Constructor: Objectives: - Locate information on the structure of the plague virus. - Destroy the Universal Constructor. 009.1 - Locate information on the structure of the plague virus: First off, if you're interested in any free points, visit the Lucky Money bar to have a drink with Gordon and Max to complete the secondary objective. Now find Canal Road, directly east of the Luminous Path compound; there's a door that's at the very north that requires a code, so use the one Tong gave you (55655) to enter it. Use a lockpick to open the pipe covering, and then jump down. Climb on to the lower pipes and make your way to the top and through the pipe. Directly right at the end of it is a datacube that gives the code to a door - 768, and on the far end is another pipe that leads to the level two labs. Around here, Daedalus gives you instructions to destroy the UC with the code 525, but we'll get to that later on. To the right of the mouth of the pipe is a door requiring a code, and 768 just happens to be that code. Run through the doors and pick up the scramble grenade, or at least remember where it is if you don't have the space in your inventory. At the end of the hall, lower the ramp to walk across, and then drop an item, a baton or knife, and return to pick up the scramble grenade. On the other side of the ramp is a set of stairs that lead to a security terminal, which turns off all of the cameras and raises the ramp. Return to the ramp area and throw the scramble grenade in between the two bots to get them to fight, you might have to shoot one to get it to become an enemy. As the two of them go at it, the commando at the end of the hall will choose a side and begin to attack the bot, so while his attention is devoted to something else you can take a potshot at him. Once the commando and one of the bots are taken care of, launch a rocket at the remaining bot to clear the room. Now, running through the lasers won't matter. Kill the scientist who's at the far end of the room and enter the room on the right and disable the security. Afterwards, log into the main computer in the first area and download the schematic along with opening up the UC Chamber. 009.2 - Destroy the Universal Constructor: Now head down the hall on the right and climb down the ladder on your left. Enter the main area and drop a weapon to take the augmentation canisters and the upgrade, which brings Regeneration to level three. Cross the walkway and head down the ladder and have the medbot install Power Recirculator. Climb back up and get your items, and if you look over the side you can see Maggie Chow waiting for you, assuming that you didn't kill her already. You can either kill her with your sniper rifle from there or climb down the ladder and talk to her first. When she's finished, she takes out a Dragon's Tooth and runs over to hack at you; she isn't too difficult to take down, though, two or three hits will do the trick. When Maggie is down for the count, head over to the keypad and enter the code 525 to blow up the UC. Two spider bots across the way are released, so jump over the side to get away from them. There are five pipes down here, so avoid the four that are filled with green water and down the one off to the corner. Swim down and pick up the darts, and then take a breath before swimming through the next pipe. There's a karkian insider, but shooting it with three or four tranquilizer darts will knock it out. Swim through the rest of the pipe and you'll be launched up at the end and appear at a larger room with more pipes. Crawl through and jump out into the canal, and use one of the several exits to reach the road that leads to Tonnochi Road, and head back to Wan Chi to speak with Tracer. If Paul is still alive, then he'll be recuperating at the desk in the main room of Tong's base. Talk to Tracer in the computer area, who tells you that he was serious when he began rambling about the Illuminati, and since the super freighter that's transporting the plague to New York in was owned by Stanton Dowd, a member of the Illuminati, he sends you to meet Dowd and find the freighter. Tracer also tells you that your time in Hong Kong is nearing its end, because Gunther has been on a witch-hunt to find you and staying would put the triads in danger. Head out to the courtyard and get into the helicopter to leave Hong Kong and revisit Hell's Kitchen - the old neighborhood has been through a lot of revamping. 010.0 - Hell's Kitchen Part 4: Stanton Dowd Objectives: - Meet Harley Filben in the Underworld Bar. - Kill Joe Greene, the traitor. - Meet Stanton Dowd at the ruins of Osgood and Sons. - See Smuggler for explosives. - Get to the helicopter waiting for you on the roof of the Ton. 010.1 - Meet Harley Filben in the Underworld Bar: Before I start anything, make sure that you're advanced in rifles! This is one of the only times you'll be able to do a lot of sniping, and if the crosshairs are wobbling it'll be a pain to take out the two dozen UNATCO and Majestic 12 troops that are roaming the streets. Yeah, that's right, when I went through this part of the mission I counted seventeen troops, plus a bot. If you stay on top of the roof of the Ton, you can get a fairly good view of most of the troops, and climbing down the ladder to the lower roof gives you a better vantage point for a few others as well as the bot. And don't worry about missing anyone because the ones walking around near the subway and Underworld Bar will come to investigate why their comrades are being slaughtered. After you reach fifteen in the death count you can head down the fire escape and enter the bar. I don't suggest going through Paul's room and out the front door because there are a lot of enemies inside. When you drop down to the street, pick up the large metal crate and move it near the ladder, and place the small one next to it on the side opposite the clinic. Inside the bar, Harley Filben is sitting in a chair in the back corner, and when you talk to him he tells you that he can set up a meeting with Stanton Dowd in the burnt ruins of the Osgood and Sons building. He also mentions that Joe Greene, the reporter you may have met in the bar a few missions back, works with UNATCO, and Filben asks if you could kill him at the clinic. Continue to the main bar area and talk to Sandra Renton if she decided to stay after you and Gilbert killed Jojo. She mentions that the Marine on the other side of the room is named Vinny, and that the two of them went to the same high school. Now talk to Vinny, who was given leave from his sub base after it was taken over by FEMA and the Chinese. When Vinny mentions how he'd like to know what's going on there, agree with him by saying, "I would too, maybe I'll check it out for you." Doing so will allow you to enter the sub base later on without any trouble. 010.2 - Kill Joe Greene, the traitor: Leave the bar and start towards the clinic, but look around where you rescued Sandra from Johnny the first time you visited New York; there should be a guy labeled "Thug" walking around - kill him. Inside of the clinic, Joe Greene is hanging around the southwest corner, and when you ask him about being a traitor, he acts innocent and surprised. Choose, "I just want to hear your side of the story" so he doesn't become an enemy; he doesn't attack either way, but it's easier if he's not moving. When the conversation is finished, use your sword to kill him. 010.3 - Meet Stanton Dowd at the ruins of Osgood and Sons: In the back left corner of the Osgood and Sons building is Dowd, and he says that the only place large enough to harbor a super freighter are the Brooklyn Navel Yards, which just happens to be the place where Vinny was stationed that was overrun by FEMA. He also mentions that you can scuttle the freighter by planting LAMs on weld points, and that Smuggler should have extras he can sell you. And on a final note, he mentions that he caught the Gray Death, and that should you happen to find Ambrosia on the ship, he'd be grateful if you brought it to him. By the way, if you didn't kill the thug before, he'll be standing behind you while you talk to Dowd. He'll attack Dowd if you leave him alone, so be sure to take proper action. 010.4 - See Smuggler for explosives: There are two good reasons why you should visit Smuggler after meeting Dowd; not only does he sell you his box of LAMs eleven hundred credits cheaper than if you went in the beginning, but also because if you don't warn him that Majestic 12 is on a manhunt for links to JC, then Smuggler will be killed later on in the game. When you leave the ruins of the building, Jock calls and says that there are large readings of troops closing in, and to meet him on the roof of the Ton. Instead, make a mad dash to the door to Smuggler's, and head down the elevator and talk to him. When he mentions that he's getting nervous about being caught in the middle between you and Majestic 12, say "Actually, UNATCO's planning an operation of some kind. You might want to get out of Hell's Kitchen after I leave." You never actually meet Smuggler again, but it would still be a bummer if he died. 010.5 - Get to the helicopter waiting for you on the roof of the Ton: This is one of the few times where there's no real strategy here; just run and hope not to get shot is the only piece of advice I can give you, and maybe activating Cloak would be a good idea. Use the secondary exit out of Smuggler's; it's left of the elevator and ends up behind the basketball court. From there, run directly to the hole in the wooden fence next to the Ton, crawl through it, and jump on the crates and up the ladder. Continue up the fire escape and then to the roof where Jock is waiting. 011.0 - Brooklyn Navel Base: Scuttle The Super Freighter: Objectives: - Find the ammo storage warehouse and raid it for more LAMs and rockets. - Enter the main building on the north side. - Get onto the ship. - Find a way onto the lower decks. - Scuttle the PCS Wall Cloud by destroying the five tri-hull welds and the reversing the flow of the bilge pump, destabilizing the ship's weight and distribution and cause the hull to split open. 011.1 - Find and raid the ammo storage warehouse: Jock drops you off in a fenced-in area near the Navel Yards, so crawl through the grate to the east to get to the gate; if you talked to Vinny the mission before then the guards will give you a key to the main gate, otherwise you'll need to use the sewers, which requires a lot of multitools and well-timed jumps. Presuming you talked to Vinny, hang around the second guardhouse until the guy comes up to you, otherwise one of the Chinese mercenaries inside the base will spot you. Enter the outer area of the base and look in the back, slightly to the left; the guard I warned you about should be walking west, so run to the wall of the right hanger and take him out with you sniper rifle. Now run back to the other side near the outer wall and look between the two hangers, use your rifle again to kill the guy walking on the bridge. Now run to the east end of the area and break open the back of the left trailer with your Dragon's Tooth and pick up the nearest box, but don't break it. Instead, carry it to the west side of the building in front of the two hangers and drop it in front of the window on the left. Jump on top of it and break open the window, and climb through. Wait for the camera on the left to move away, and then make your way over to the far right corner where the security terminal is to turn off the cameras - but do NOT open the door where the ammo storage warehouse is, there are two bots in there. Now exit the same way you came in, and carry the box to the next building farther west and repeat the same way of entering - through the window on the right. Hop through, take the lockpick, and fill your bio energy, but DON'T break open the box, you need it to get back out. Now run over to the eastern hanger and go through the door, behind the soda machines is a security terminal - hack it or use the login/password USFEMA/Security. Once the cameras are off, enter the office right next to you and go into the bathroom to find a code to the main base - 0909. In the desk in the main room is a datacube with the USFEMA/Security login and password, and the door you opened from the security terminal leads to another office, this one has a second security terminal and a key to the ammo storage warehouse, which is barely visible if you crouch down and look under the front right corner of the desk. As for the security, use the USFEMA login to turn off all of the cameras, turrets, and open the gate in the sewers. Now leave the office, there are three guys roaming around this area, so use the crates as cover to scope them out and use a Cloak/Run Silent to sneak up behind them and knock them out. Once the three of them are out of commission run up the stairs that cross over the office and you'll find the corpse of the guy you killed in the beginning. Crouch down and look north to see if there's a guy walking around, otherwise he's right beneath you. Either way, when you have the opportunity, shoot him in the head. Unlock the door to the ammo storage warehouse and quickly fire a rocket at a bot that's walking around before taking cover behind the wall. When you load another rocket, repeat this to take out the other one, and then drop down under the railing and head to the other side of the building where the control room is. Open the first two pens, pick up a TNT box, and drop it near the third pen, but about halfway in between the two walls. Now open the last pen and aim your pistol at the crate, blowing it up when the bot ventures out. Equip your GEP gun one more time and fire another rocket at the fourth bot in the same area, and begin looting the three pens for 10MM ammo, 20HE ammo, rockets, and LAMs. 011.2 - Enter the main building on the north side: Return to the right hanger by climbing up the slant on the east side and then using the elevated roofs to jump back onto the walkway. On the west side of this hanger, near some blue barrels, is a grate leading to the sewers. Climb down and take a right, running through the lasers. Normally this would be bad, but since the turrets were bypassed in that office not to long ago, there's nothing to fear down here. Use the crates on the left to get to the other side and diffuse the LAM on the left. 011.3 - Get onto the ship: Jump into the water and swim to the ladder on the far left, climb up, and use your sniper rifle to take out the three guys walking up and down the dock. When they're dead, run down and take a right at the ramp and then a left to reach the break room. Talk to one of the mechanics, who tells you that the code to activate the ramp is 6655. Run up the ladder and onto the ship. 011.4 - Find a way onto the lower decks: Before we get to the lower levels, run east to the stern of the boat and climb up the red tower and jump to the crate nearest it; from here there's a perfect vantage point to take out at least three of the five guys walking around the deck: Two in the far right and down walking down the left side, almost underneath you. The final two guards are farther back on the right, if you climb down and hang around the right corner you can kill the final two from far enough away when they appear. Once the deck is clear, search around for LAMs and ammo, and then head to the cabins, located near the ramp. __________ _________ | A | | | | ____ |_______| ||____| | | | _ | |___ __| | | _ | |_______ | | _ | |_|_|_|_ | | _ | | | . . -> . | | | x |_______| | . | |_______| . | | |__ __|_______| J Walk up to the door and open it, a sailor is walking away from you and goes up the stairs; take him out before he gets there. Continue to the room marked "A" on the above map and pick up the vial of Ambrosia, just make sure not to accidentally use it. Once you've completed that objective, head upstairs and immediately right and inside the door marked "Sick Bay". The datacube on the right gives you a code to raise a bridge in the lower level - 9753, and the grate on the other side leads to the otherwise locked electronics room. There are two weapon mods here, as well as a repair bot and a code to a door on the third floor - 83355. Return to the grate but stop halfway and open the grate in the hallway; wait until a guard passes you and shoot a tranquilizer dart into him. If he causes enough commotion to bring down another guard, repeat this strategy. Once everything is quiet, head to the southwest corner on the floor and crawl through the vent to end up underneath another set of stairs. Here's the third floor: _________________________________ | |__| _| __ x x | | | |____ __|__|__ __|__ __| |__ |_| A | | | | | |__|____| | | |_|__|__|__________________|_ ___| | | |_ _| Enter the long room using the door near "A"; this is the keypad where the code 83353 works. On the other side of the electronics are two Chinese guards, so take a break from the stealth and jump around the corner, putting a bullet or seven into their skulls with your machine gun. When they're dead, find the datacube lying around that has the code to the captain's quarters (65678), and then enter that room; it's the one all the way on the left. Inside, find the datacube in the desk that has the code to the armory, 71324, and then find the Below Decks key under the Captain's nightstand. Under his bed is his login and password in case you want to read the email that his daughter sent him. When you leave the room, head to the other side where the security terminal is and turn off the cameras as well as open the armory; I guess that code won't do very much anymore. In the room to the southeast is a small room that leads outside; there may or may not be a guard standing out there, so be careful. If you look over the edge you should see a sailor walking around, so kill him. Now head back down to the second floor and raid the armory, there are some more LAMs if you don't have ten already. Continue down to the first floor and then even lower via the stairs to the west. Use the Below Decks key to unlock the door and run down the stairs. 011.5 - Scuttle the PCS Wall Cloud: Walk down the stairs, there are two guys below you that will hear you if you're not quiet. Once you're down the stairs, turn around and find the two guys; shoot a tranquilizer dart at one of them and run away, hiding behind something until the one you shot is knocked out and you can get a clear shot at the second. Once the two of them are done for, head to the northwest corner, throw a LAM at the yellow and orange weld point and then run away before it blows up; the blue barrels add to the explosion. Now run to the southwest corner of the room and throw a LAM over the wall in the corner to destroy the second weld point. Search the corpse of one of the Chinese guards to get one of your LAMs back. Now find the bridge near the front of the room; use the code 9753 to raise it and head across to the command center. Begin to climb the ladder until you see a sailor, and hit him with a tranquilizer dart before taking cover. After the alarm dies down, repeat this with the other two sailors up top and loot their bodies to get some more tranquilizer darts. Climb back down look around, there should be a third guard walking around the room that wasn't there before; hit him with another tranquilizer dart and find sanctuary in the command center until he passes out. Continue to the hallway and turn right; down the hall is a security terminal right before a doorway. Click on the terminal and back into the dark corner so that you aren't seen and turn off all of the cameras. Now enter the room and use a Cloak/Dragon's Tooth combination to kill the two guys in here. Throw another LAM at the weld point in this room, the bilge pump room, and then find the button and computer in the northwest corner that controls the pump. First turn it on and then hack into the computer to reverse the flow, now we just have to finish destroying the weld points. Leave this room the same way you came and follow the hall to a mechanic and repair bot near a door. The mechanic tells you that the spider bots have gone haywire and he's too afraid to try and fix the problems himself. Enter the room and climb up the ladder directly to your right. Jump from there to the computer to the south and look over the edge to find the first spider bot. Shoot a rocket at it to destroy it, and then bypass the security panel against the wall. In the same area a little east is a grate, so crawl down it and follow it to the laser. Turn around and point your GEP gun at the wall and crawl backwards through the laser; blowing up the spider bot when it comes to attack you. Continue to the far right corner to disable the second security panel and complete the secondary objective. Climb out and find the weld point on the other side of the room, and then find the grate in the dark corner of the southeast side. Crawl to the helibase and look left when you climb up the ladder from the vent; behind the set of crates is the last weld point. Use a rocket to blow it up from where you are and head back to the electrical room via the grate. The ship begins to "sink", which means rumble furiously, but it never actually sinks; so don't worry about rushing out. In fact, take the time to visit the armory and electronics room on the upper floors of the ship; there are some LAMs and rockets in the armory and four or five multitools in the electronics room. Once you're off of the ship, head to the west end of the dock and climb up the ladder. Take a left and you'll end up next to a grate with four or five spider bots on the other side. Let them see you and they'll rush to the grate; equip your GEP gun and open up the grate from the side, and then immediately fire a rocket at the opening so that all of the spider bots get caught in the blast. Saving right around here wouldn't be such a bad idea. When they've been destroyed, fire another rocket at the big propeller to destroy it, and then climb up the ladder near the grate and head into the vent up top. Use your Dragon's Tooth or a 10MM bullet to blast open the vent and get onto the roof where Jock is waiting for you. 012.0 - Lower East Side Cemetery: Dowd's Mausoleum: Objectives: - Meet Stanton Dowd at his family crypt. - Disable the EM disruption field that is preventing Jock from landing. - Take the helicopter to Paris. 012.1 - Meet Stanton Dowd at his family crypt: I almost wasn't sure if I should count this as a part of the previous mission, but eventually organization prevailed. Use the intercom to call the gatekeeper, and after he opens the door, take him out with your Dragon's Tooth. Now head to the mausoleum where Dowd is waiting for you. If you kept the Ambrosia from the last mission, here's where you give it to him; after which he tells you about Bob Page being involved with manufacturing the virus, and that since he was one of the original Illuminati who broke away and formed Majestic 12, Morgan Everett should be able to find a cure. Dowd also mentions that Nicolette DuClare was a close friend of Everett's and she should be able to put you into contact with him; she's been helping the resistance fighters known as Silhouette in Paris. 012.2 - Disable the EM disruption field: After he's finished talking, find the secret door under the stairs leading back outside and follow the path until you reach the opening. Climb up the ladders and look around; there are three MJ12 troops walking around you and another on the other side to the south. Use the same strategy that you did to take out the sailors in the command room and shoot a tranquilizer dart at one of them before taking cover. Repeat this two more times and then head outside and look south. Take out your pistol and kill the last trooper, and then head to the gatekeepers hut; to the left is a loose painting that opens up at reveals a keypad. Use a multitool to hack it, which opens up the bookcase to reveal the cause of Jock's trouble. Plant a LAM on the side of the device, but DO NOT blow it up. Instead, return to Dowd and look inside the crypts, one of them contains a replacement LAM. Also, there's a multitool sitting on the desk with the computer, and if you pick the lock to the vault right next to that you'll get an augmentation upgrade, which should bring Regeneration to its maximum level of four. When you're finished, return to the hut and blow up the EM device, allowing Jock to land but sending a swarm of troops to the cemetery. 012.3 - Take the helicopter to Paris: Why the hell did I dedicate an entire objective to this? There are about five MJ12 that appear when you disable the EM field, and if you're crouching or inside the hut they won't see you. Now, you can try and kill them all, but that would be a waste; so instead, activate Cloak and run to the helicopter. 013.0 - Paris Part 1: The Catacombs: Objectives: - Make contact with Silhouette in the Paris catacombs. - Rescue the Silhouette hostages in Bunker Three and return to Chad for information about Nicolette DuClare. 013.1 - Make contact with Silhouette in the Paris catacombs: Jock drops you off high atop an abandoned skyscraper, which means that there are some bad guys we can kill from a distance. Find the opening all the way in the back and look down at the enclosed compound on the right; there are three MJ12 commandos walking around, and with any luck, they're all right around the same area like they were for me. If they aren't just know that one of them walks around the building closest to you, another's route takes him around the building farthest from you, and the last walks up and down the strip of street in between the two buildings. Once the three of them are dead, turn around and run over to the hole east of the elevator. Jump down two levels and then slide down to the third to reach an open elevator door. Head upstairs and inside a room to meet Aimee, a disturbing woman grieving over the death of her cats; all of which were killed by four greasles down in the sewers. She tells you that the code to the sewers in 0001, but warns that it's too dangerous. However, Aimee does not know that JC is equipped with a level four Regeneration, Environmental Resistance, and a Dragon's Tooth Sword. Run downstairs, past the elevator, and down to the small inlet right of the large door. You should have an empty space from when you gave Dowd the Ambrosia, so take the hazmat suit and run up to the large door, opening it with 0001. Activate Environmental Resistance and the hazmat suit and run through the radioactive room to the northwest side, where a ladder and a repair bot are. Drop down the ladder and equip the Dragon's Tooth; if you run up to a greasle and strafe around him in circles while slashing your sword, you can avoid his poison. If you are hit, however, use Environmental Resistance and Regeneration to stay alive. Return to Aimee and tell her that the greasles are dead, and when you head back down you can pick up whatever you dropped for the hazmat suit if you want it back. Continue down to the sewers again and head west, make sure to pick up the lockpick that's resting on the right wall between the second and third light. Continue through the sewers and up the ladder to reach the streets. If you killed the three commandos, then the area is clear, so continue down to the subway; an arms dealer named Dafoe is down there and he asks you to kill the three MJ12 troops that are occupying the station. On the opposite side of the hall from Dafoe is a grate, so open it up and crawl through the vent. Take a right when the path diverges and unlock the seventy-percent lock strength grate and crawl to the other side of the room to where the med bot is. Hug the right wall near the doorway and look left: there's a Majestic 12 trooper with a flamethrower standing there, as well as another with a machine gun on the other side. Take the left one out with a shot in the head, and when the other guy goes to sound an alarm, kill him with another shot or a hack from your sword. Forget about the bot in the other room, and head back to the grate, but hack into the security terminal and turn off the camera. Now head back to Dafoe, who is pleased with your performance and offers a discount on his merchandise, buy some LAMs or rockets if you're low from scuttling the Wall Cloud. Head down to the end of the subway station and hack the two ATMs to get a total of one hundred and fifty credits. Return to the streets and search the bodies of the commandos, one of them has a key to the catacomb doors; otherwise you'd have to go around back and break open a boarded up window. Don't worry about the other building, there's really nothing important there, unless you want to hear a strange phone call. Head down the spiral staircase and into the catacombs. At the first fork, take a right; making sure to diffuse the gas grenade on the left, continue straight and then follow the Majestic 12 down the path to the right. Knock him out with you riot prod and continue to the room with the pillar directly in the middle and head into the small tunnel on the left. Wait at the end of the other side until the commando passes you, and then sneak up behind him and prod him in the back. Continue on the path in this room and click on the block directly under the lockpick to open the secret door leading to Bunker One, the Silhouette hideout. Talk to Chad in the room in the middle, and he tells you that he can help you find Nicolette in exchange for rescuing two comrades who were taken hostage after they got lost in the catacombs. He gives you a key to the blast doors leading to Bunkers Two and Three. 013.2 - Rescue the Silhouette hostages in Bunker Three: Open the door and take a left, follow that path until you enter the circular room with the pillar in the middle. There's a Majestic 12 commando walking back and forth on the other side, so follow him when he begins to walk away from you, and use your prod to knock him out. Continue deeper into the catacombs until you find a bunker door, which is Bunker Two; inside is a man who can sell you tranquilizer darts for two hundred credits, which is not a bad deal. Proceed farther down and keep to the left to reach Bunker Three, there's a ramp that leads down with two MJ12 guards walking back and forth at the bottom. Equip your pistol and shoot one of them in the head; the other one runs out from where he is and blindly comes to attack you - kill him before he can get close. Run down the ramp and turn left, there are two lockpicks in this room that make up for the ones that were used to complete the mission for Dafoe. Head to the room on the right of the main area; the broken wall behind the cross leads to Bunker Three. In this area, there are two commandos and three regular guards, although one of them has a flamethrower. Use your scope to find a guy and kill him, when his comrades hit the alarm, retreat to the back near the cross; more so because of the turret that will attack you, much less the other guys. When the alarm dies down, repeat this strategy until the five guys are dead; just be warned that commandos usually take two shots in the head from a pistol to be killed. When that room is cleared and everything is quiet, drop down and crawl to the wall of the room in the middle; drop down into that tunnel filled with water and swim to the other end of the Bunker. You will lose a total of fifty health from your torso when you run out of oxygen, but a few seconds with Regeneration fixes that problem. There are three more enemies in this room, two commandos and a Woman In Black named Mari Hela. Get out of the water and crouch behind the crates and wait for Hela to begin walking away from the security terminal on the left. She walks in between two sets off pillars, so hug the right wall and follow her; when you reach the end, head up the stairs before the camera in the first room sets off an alarm. On the second floor, there's a commando walking back and forth, so get right behind him and knock him out with your riot prod; use Cloak if you have to, the only thing that matters is that the commando be taken out quietly. When he's down for the count, crawl to the opposite side of the room for where you began and hang by the ladder until the second commando walks underneath you and begins to walk up that side of the room. Climb down the ladder and follow far enough behind him, and hide behind the nearest pillar when he stops and begins to turn. When he's about halfway across, hug the wall and make a circle around Hela, who should be standing in the middle of the first two pillars. Get to the other side of the room and sneak up behind the commando and knock him out, and then hide behind a pillar until Hela walks all of the way down and then begins to walk back up. Crawl up to her and knock her out with your prod, make sure that your crosshairs are pointed at the big black shadow in her back and she'll go down in one prod. Now run over to the security terminal and turn off the camera and take the nanokey from the table. If Hela was knocked out instead of killed, you can pick up a scope modification for one of your weapons. Head to the large room with the blast door where the Silhouette hostages are being held and open the door to release them. They start running back to the hideout, so retrace your steps; making sure to use the cross passage instead of running through the lasers and setting off the turrets. When both captives make it back to camp, talk to Chad, who happily tells you where Nicolette can be found: the Club la Porte de l'Enfer. Of course, since martial law was instated, the only way to reach the city from here are the sewers, the key you picked up next to the security terminal in Bunker Three is the exit from the catacombs that leads to the sewers. The sewer door is actually a few feet away from where the very beginning of Bunker Three was, so follow the same path as before but continue straight instead of taking a left. Use the key to open the blast door and follow the long, winding, path. Drop down the ladder to reach the sewers. 014.0 - Paris Part 2: The Club La Porte de l'Enfer: Objectives: 014.1 - Find Nicolette DuClare, she has been known to frequent the Club la Porte de l'Enfer. 014.1 - Find Nicolette DuClare: If you told Jaime Reyes to stay at UNATCO and be a spy, then you get a message when you first begin walking around the sewers. Tracer informs you that he received an emergency call from Jaime, he's at a small cafe, building number nineteen, and he has important information for you. But we'll get to that later, because there's a Majestic 12 team waiting for you. Take a left and head up the ladder; listen to the two troopers' conversation and then open up the sewer manhole and peek out. If you turn around you'll find a Rottweiler walking back and forth, so shoot it and the two Majestic 12 troopers with tranquilizer darts and retreat to the sewers for a moment, or until the excitement dies down. Be warned that sometimes an enemy will fall down into the sewers and not die, so keep a pistol or Dragon's Tooth ready. Repeat this strategy three more times, there are three MJ12 troopers that you can take out this way, just be careful that you aren't spotted by one of the big security bots. When the three troopers and the Rottweiler have been knocked out, face the dead end side of the street and use your pistol to kill the two commandos and the final MJ12 trooper. Once all seven enemies are taken care of and the bots are far enough away, climb out of the sewers and run to the small hut north of where you are; hack the computer and disable the two military bots. Now head over to the southeast corner and run up the ally, take the first right west and talk to the guy wearing a blue jump suit; it shouldn't be hard to find him since he's the only guy in the area. He tells you that the Club la Porte de l'Enfer is building number thirteen and that Renault is inside building number ten, a hotel, and that he's looking for a professional thief. Continue south to reach the hotel, in the back is Renault and his companion, who tell you that the baker who works at building number fifteen has zyme; Renault enlists your help to break into the bakery and steal his stash. Agree to check it out, and then leave the hotel, continue heading south and then west up the ally. If your sniper rifle has a silencer on it, then this won't be a problem, otherwise you'll have to get rid of the three cops hanging around the hotel; it's not difficult, just use your prod or baton so that they don't make any noise when they go down. Either way, look through the scope at the end of the ally to find the commando walking at the other end; take him down and wait a few moments, another commando, a trooper, and a cop will begin running down the ally to attack you. Kill them before they get close enough and continue down the ally, where the bakery is. There may be another cop walking around, so knock him out before you break into the bakery. Use your Dragon's Tooth to shatter a window and open up the ovens in the corner to find the six vials of zyme, as well as cash and some ammo. Return to a pleased Renault, who offers to pay you fifty credits per vial. However, refuse to give them up and he raises the price of each vial to sixty-five. Return to the street that the bakery was on and look across the street; there's an MJ12 trooper walking around near the subway. Follow behind him and knock him out, looting his body rewards a scope modification. Northwest of the bakery, across the street, is the cafe where Jaime is waiting; enter inside and talk to him at his table. He mentions that things are quickly going down at UNATCO, but before he left he found some information that might be useful; specifically, Gunther Hermann's killphrase: Laputan Machine. Exit the cafe and head up the street, at the very corner where the bots are, take a left up the ally and then face south, where a medium version patrol bot is walking around. Use your GEP gun to take it out, and then run to the other end where the two cops are and hack the ATMs for just over five hundred credits. Head back to where the hotel is and, making sure that the three cops are knocked out, use a GEP rocket to blow up the door to building number eleven, which is home to an arms dealer. After taking the mods and ammo on the table, enter his bedroom and use a rocket to blow up the chest on the left, which has 30.06 ammo and some more weapon mods. On the opposite side of the bed are four rockets, which should reimburse you for the ones that you used up throughout Paris. Finally, run outside and find the front entrance to the club; again, it's building number thirteen. Enter inside and run to the second entrance, the doorman named Leone tells you that the admission charge is three hundred credits. Pay it if you want to, but you can break the glass and forcefully take it by killing him as well. Either way you get the key, open the door and head inside; at the south end of the club is a girl named Cassandra walking around. Save the game and then talk to her, she offers to tell you the code to the club armory if you pay her two hundred credits. Agree to find out the code: 1966; now reload the game and remember that number, to the south behind the bar is the armory. Use the 1966 code to unlock the door and loot the place, there's sniper rifle ammo, some tranquilizer darts, and pistol ammo, among other things. Now head upstairs and talk to the girl sitting in the chair, who says that she's a friend of Nicolette's and agrees to set up a meeting for you with Nicolette. Leave the club the same way you entered, there's the familiar sound of a chopper behind the club, along with the girl, who happens to be Nicolette herself. Talk to her and then get into the helicopter, just in time to watch Gunther desperately try to catch you. 015.0 - Paris Part 3: Chateau DuClare: Objectives: - Find Beth DuClare's secret computer room. 015.1 - Find Beth DuClare's secret computer room: There are two ways to enter the house; either unlock or blow up the front door, or break the wooden planks covering the otherwise open back door. I think the answer is pretty obvious, just use your Dragon's Tooth to break the planks apart. Once inside, run upstairs and find the small table in between the bathroom and Beth's bedroom, it's hard to miss it. Look behind the vase to find the key to Beth's room, so unlock her door and enter it. Near the door, in a small cabinet, is a key to Nicolette's room, and on the northeast wall is a painting that hides a secret compartment, which contains a login and password for Beth's computer, Bduclare - Nico_angel, and a key to the basement. Leave Beth's room and run down the hall to Nicolette's room, which has a lockpick on the bedside table as well as a secret compartment behind the fireplace. Access it by pressing the skull on the left corner; there are some weapon mods and a thermoptic camo. In fact, if you have a spare space in your inventory, keep the thermoptic camo for later on, otherwise you'll drain your bioenergy with Cloak. Now head downstairs, to the north is a kitchen that has a door leading to the wine cellar. Use the basement key to unlock it and run to the southeast corner; press the candelabra to open up the obviously fake wall and continue southwest. Use your Dragon's Tooth to break the wood blocking your path and continue into the small room with boxes and a computer terminal. Use the computer to disable the field containing the augmentation upgrade and log out; head east, clearing away some more wood, and into the main computer room. In the back is the augmentation upgrade, and the computer can be used to contact Morgan Everett. Use the login/password "Bduclare" and "Nico_angel" to access it and transmit the Everett meeting signal to receive a message from Everett, who agrees to meet you on the condition that you do him a favor first. Apparently, there's a cathedral that has been taken over by Majestic 12; Everett needs access to their computer network so that he can develop a cure for the Grey Death. Oh yeah, and there's a billion dollars worth of a gold in a vault somewhere, and if you happen to find it, he'll send some people to pick it up. Talk to Nicolette, who gives you a key to the sewers that leads to the cathedral. Exit the chateau and continue out back to the cemetery; around this time Jock calls and lets you know that there are some commandos walking around. If you have the thermoptic camo from Nicolette's room, equip it and run to the back, unlock the door, and head inside; using Cloak works just as well. Run to the end of the sewers and up the ladder to reach the outskirts of the cathedral. 016.0 - Paris Part 4: The Knight's Templar: Objectives: - Recover the gold from the Templar's Cathedral. - Access the computer network for Morgan Everett. - Meet Toby Atanwe, Everett's associate, in the metro station. 016.1 - Recover the gold from the Templar's Cathedral: As soon as you climb up the ladder, pick up the small metal crate and use it to climb on top of the ledge it was on. Use the other crate to reach the window and use your Dragon's Tooth to break it open. Walk up the wooden plank that leads to the second floor and find the Gatekeeper's Key at the south end of the room. Climb back down and run down the ally; use the key to open the gate and continue through. Peek around the corner and find the commando, who should be just beginning to walk towards you. Retreat to the gate and hide behind it on the left; the commando eventually walks to the gate and starts heading back, so follow him and knock him down with your prod. Past the burning barrel is a walkway with three snipers on it. Peek around the corner and wait for them to begin walking, and then make a dash for the door at the northwest corner. Pick the ninety percent lock (I hope you're advanced in lockpicking skills by now) and head up the stairs. Crouch down and look down the walkway, there's a trooper walking up and down on both sides and a third standing right in front of you. When both troopers have stopped and are looking down at the street below, sneak up behind the third trooper and knock him out with your prod. Use this small room for cover until the trooper on the right walks to your side of the walkway, and then knock him out as well. Quickly return to the small room before the last trooper begins walking towards you and use a similar strategy to take him down. Run across the walkway and stop at the end; use your sniper rifle to find the trooper and the commando near the metro station to the northwest. Try to take one or both of them out, but if they walk away out of sight, don't worry about it too much. Continue to the small room on the other side, there's a lockpick in one of the boxes to make up for using three on the door, some cash on a ledge, and a security terminal against the wall. Hack the computer and disable the military bot, and then head back down. Run up the street leading to the metro station, if you killed the two MJ12 guys before you can continue up to the cathedral, otherwise you'll have to kill them here. Look around the metro from the wall and find the trooper, use your sniper rifle to kill him. If the alert music begins to play, run back up to the walkway and wait for the commando to come into view, and then snipe him as well. If the music doesn't play, then look around the corner and find the commando left of the metro station. When he begins to walk away from you, activate Cloak and knock him out with your prod. Continue towards the cathedral, Daedalus sends you a map of the area, although it's not very helpful. Wait for the commando to walk away from you and follow behind him. When he reaches the main compound and turns right, do the opposite and take a left, hiding behind the row of plants. Get to the left side of them and use your sniper rifle to shoot the trooper standing in the middle of the area to the north. | | D | | . B | | bot | | | . |_____ |__________________| . ___A| ________ . | || |________| . |___||_________________________ C . . . . . . . . . . x _____ |_____| ______________J_______________ ________ This is a very crude ascii of the area, so try to deal with it, note that the enemy labeled "x" is the one you just killed with your rifle. When the bot reaches the area labeled "C", run behind the plants labeled "A", and wait for the bot to return to point "D" and then begin heading back to point "C". Unlock the door of on the right, labeled point "B", and head up the stairs. After going up the first few flights of stairs, crouch down and jump onto the railing to reach the trooper hanging at the top by the window. Use a melee weapon to take him down, and then enter the room at the bottom of the stairs, which is the Templar's library. Behind one of the bookstands is a key to the main door. Continue down the stairs in the library to reach the monk's quarters, there are two commandos inside. One is walking up and down the hall on the left and the other is standing in the bedroom with his back to you. Crawl past the hall and hide in the corner until the commando walking up the hall passes you and heads towards the stairs. Knock him out before he turns around and then do the same to the other commando. In this bedroom, look behind the bed to find a recoil modification as well as a datacube on the desk; there are a few odd phrases in it, the first two being the most important: Sidon's Vault - 1942 and The Fountain of Wisdom - 0022. In the other monk's rooms are a handful of credits, but nothing else is particularly interesting. Return to the main flight of stairs and run up until you reach the top. Peek around the corner and find where the MJ12 trooper is, hide down the stairs and wait for him to walk inside the room and begin to head back. Knock him out and continue to the other room, where another trooper is; wait for him to turn his back to you and prod him as well. Now peer down the stairs here, crouch down to get a view of the third trooper's legs. Shoot him with a tranquilizer dart and retreat to the stairs in the other room; when you think he's knocked out, return and continue down four more flights of stairs. On the left should be a blast door that leads to the Knights Templar gold. Use the code 1942 (Sidon's Vault), to open the door. Inside, run through the lasers and stay in between the crates filled with gold. In the back on the right is a security terminal that can disable the turrets if you're advanced in Computers. If not, turn off the cameras and wait until the alarm dies down. Inside the vault are two mods - a reload and a scope -, and a repair bot. One of the mods is on top of the middle crate on the left; you can use the large and small crates near the door of the vault to reach it. 016.2 - Access the computer network for Morgan Everett: Leave the vault and head left to continue, take a right at the top of the stairs and hide behind the pillar until the camera is facing away from you. Enter the code 0022 (the Fountain of Wisdom) into the keypad and enter the next room. Gunther calls you now, taunting you to "follow your new masters." If you plan on fighting him honorably, then breaking open the box here and taking the fire extinguisher wouldn't be a bad idea. Continue through this room, down the stairs, and into the main room, where Gunther is standing on the right of the stairs. There are three very different ways to approach this confrontation; either use Gunther's killphrase if Jaime told you, fire a GEP rocket at him, or unload clip after clip from you machine gun. I'll cover each of these strategies. Killphrase - This is obviously the easiest way to defeat Gunther, simply talk to him and choose the phrase "I know your UNATCO killphrase: Laputan Machine." Gunther delivers one of the cooler lines in the game, "I - am not - a - machi -" before blowing up. GEP Gun - Probably the second easiest strategy, simply run down the stairs and fire a rocket at Gunther before he begins talking to you. Machine Gun - As soon as you finish talking to Gunther, strafe right and run back up to the room with the Ambrosia. Climb up the ladder and wait for Gunther to come find you, and then unload round after round into him until he drops. If he doesn't follow you, he's standing around the main room, which means that you have a free shot at him, just watch out for his flamethrower, I hope you keep that fire extinguisher handy. No matter what, however, Gunther will eventually be dead, so hack into the computer in the main room and establish a systems uplink so that Morgan Everett can access it. Run to the other side of the room to speak with Walton Simons, who warns you that next time you won't fight an outdated mech like Gunther but someone of your own capabilities. 016.3 - Meet Toby Atanwe, Everett's associate, in the metro station: Now backtrack all of the way to the outside of the cathedral, watch out for the bot in the courtyard and the commando walking up and down the walkway leading to the metro. When the coast is clear, run down to the metro stairway, the bot should be disabled and the two MJ12 guarding it should be taken care of as well. Head down, on the left is a door that won't open because of technical problems, so break it with your sword and hack into the ATM, which has a large sum of nine hundred credits in it. Across from here is the door that leads down to the tracks where Toby Atanwe is. Run down the side and speak with Toby, and tell him "Do what you must." 017.0 - Paris Part 5: Morgan Everett's Home: Objectives: - Meet with Morgan Everett. - Tell Everett that Lucius DeBeers is cold. - Investigate the mechanic. - Meet Jock at the helipad. 017.1 - Meet with Morgan Everett: Toby awakens you and says that Everett is waiting for you in his lab. Head east, past the kitchen and down the stairs. In the room with the repair bot are two boxes that contain prod chargers; past that leads to a fork heading south or west. Run south and talk to Alex, who tells you that Tong sent him to keep an eye on Everett. Check out his computer for the codes to the two augmentation containment chambers: 2384 and 6426. Continue south to the other room and open up the blast door, either with multitools or cheat with the code 8001. Enter the dark room and get the key that unlocks the gate behind the mirror. Talk to Morpheus about JC's past and how computers substitute man's need for God. When you finish talking to Morpheus, leave the room and head west to meet with Everett, who tells you about Daedalus and how he completed a cure for the virus. The only catch is that the use of a Universal Constructor will be needed, and the only one available is the one at X-51, a laboratory created by a team of scientists who left Area 51. 017.2 - Tell Everett that Lucius DeBeers is cold: At this point, Everett gives you a key to the helipad and tells you to meet Jock there, but we're not quite finished yet. Grab the augmentations in Everett's lab before heading back to where Toby revived you, but instead check out the bedroom and then the bathroom. Move the large mirror to reveal a gate, use the key from Morpheus' room to unlock it, and continue through the hall to meet the crippled form of Lucius DeBeers, the former leader of the Illuminati. He gets angry when JC said that he thought that Everett was the leader of the Illuminati, and says that he simply awaits technologies that can bring him back to full strength. But right now he's very cold, and asks JC to tell Morgan so. Do that, return to Everett and tell him; Morgan responds that he could have revived Lucius a long time ago, but hasn't because he wishes to remain the Illuminated One. Return to Lucius, two options appear: either telling him the truth about Morgan or not. If you lie to him, Lucius remains in his delirious state, but if you be honest, he gets angry and asks you to turn off his power supply, killing him. If you do so, Everett gets annoyed at you, but nothing long term. 017.3 - Investigate the mechanic: It almost seems like we're finished here, but there's still one more thing to do. Head to the helipad, the blast door is in the same room as where Atanwe woke you. Enter and turn right, there's the body of a mechanic lying behind some crates. Talk to the living mechanic in the corner, who gets nervous and begins stuttering; take a few minutes and have some fun trying to guess his accent. Talk to Everett about the strange guy and he tells you that he hasn't been able to contact his mechanic, Pierre, and was wondering what was going on. That guy didn't seem very French to me, and there was the dead body; could it be that the man upstairs is a spy? Return to the helipad and confront him about it; your IFF becomes red and he tries to run away. Take him out in some fashion and then talk to Jock, telling him to check his systems to make sure that everything's working right. To his surprise, Jock finds a remote controlled bomb, but disables it and tells you that he'll dump it in the ocean. Get in the chopper and head to Vandenberg. 018.0 - Vandenberg Part 1: X-51: Objectives: - Activate the bot security system. - Go to the Command Center and meet with Gary Savage. - Uplink Daedalus to the military computer near the control room. 018.1 - Activate the bot security system: When you land on the roof, a woman runs over to you and thanks you for scaring away the troopers. She also says that Majestic 12 troops have set up security grids along with setting four bots to roam the east courtyard, and unfortunately, X-51 can't use their own military bots because they have to be activated manually from two different locations; one is inside the complex and the other is outside in the southwest corner. She gives the code to activate them: 5868. Run north and jump onto the ledge of the roof, use your pistol or sniper rifle to shoot the trooper walking back and forth directly underneath you. Drop back down onto the helipad and run to the east corner, you can see the four bots walking around as well as two troopers standing in the far back of the area. Use your rifle to snipe them both and continue to the southern portion of the roof; there's another trooper walking along the building and he's probably close enough to shoot with your pistol. And finally, run to the west side of the building where two troopers are walking on two separate floors of the tower. Shoot the bottom one first, he has a sniper rifle, and then the second one. Leave the roof via the door in the center of the helipad and run down two flights of stairs before jumping over the railing. Quickly enter the door before the camera spots you, but open the security terminal and turn off the cameras. Now head to the door, but climb up the ladder to the right and crouch on the catwalk to reach the grate above the two MJ12 troopers. Drop down on top of the elevator and hit the button marked "Reset" to head to the first floor. Now open up the grate, although you can't see it, there are two troopers and a Man In Black to the left, maybe there's a way to incorporate that TNT crate on the cart into our strategy? If you have either Cloak or a thermoptic camo, then you can use this strategy. Drop down to the floor and immediately activate Cloak or the camo; the three guys will hear you and come to investigate, so run past them to the TNT cart. Get behind it and push it towards the three with your body; back up and fire a shot at the crate so that it explodes, taking all three enemies with it. If you don't have Cloak or a thermoptic camo, then use this plan. Fire a shot at the crate to get their attention, and then use tranquilizer darts to knock them all out. Or, you can aim solely for the MIB and use your pistol to kill him, which will hopefully take out the other two guys when he explodes. This can become troublesome if they're all moving around, so wait in the back of the elevator until everything quiets down and then take your shots. Once they're all dead, head south and hack into the security terminal, and then enter the room beyond that. Run up the stairs and into the meeting room on the second floor, look over the east railing and kill the MJ12 trooper with your pistol. His death should attract the other trooper to come into vision, so kill him as well. If he doesn't appear, drop down and find him, but be ready to attack, even if he ran west beyond the lasers. When the area is clear, use lockpicks to open the door to the north and speak to the man inside, who gives you an EMP grenade and a login and password: Tunnel01 and Omega2a. Now enter the room to the east via the door to the south, it's completely submerged and electricity is running through the water. Use the various crates and desks to reach the security terminal on the far side of the room and disable all cameras and turrets. Head back and leave this area, don't worry about running through the lasers, since the turrets are off there's nothing to worry about. Run back to the room where the elevator was and continue north to the door on the left. Enter inside and find the yellow box with the keypad on it. Use the code the woman gave you (5868) to complete half of the objective. Run back to the main room south of here and leave the building through the east exit; there are two commandos guarding the entrance, so crawl to the outside of them and use your prod to take them out. Now hide behind the large pillar southeast of where you are until the southern bot passes you, and then run south before it turns around. Continue west past the large tanks until you reach yellow boxes similar to the ones from before. Use the same code (5868) to activate the bots, but you still have to set them loose from their holding point in the courtyard. Return to the eastern entrance the same way you came, and run to the bunker on the left when both bots are away. Open the door and run up the stairs to find the bots ready, so hit the buttons to open the doors, but don't forget to check the rest of the bunker for WP Rockets, a lockpick, and a LAM. When the bots begin to search for targets, chances are the first one they find is the military bot doing its route around the bunker. Give the bots an advantage by throwing a LAM near the enemy one, and it will go down faster. Go back and get the LAM from the bunker to compensate for it, then return to watch the show. The two X-51 bots begin fighting the other military bot circling the Communications Building, which should be an easy win, since the odds are two against one. When that's finished they lumber over to the two smaller bots, which is a joke of a battle and should take seconds to win. 018.2 - Go to the Command Center and meet with Gary Savage: Jock calls in and says that the base is no longer under lockdown, so head to the Communications room where the second military bot was and talk to the scientist there. He says that he sent another scientist through the tunnels with their key to the Command Center, but he hasn't responded back to them. In the back of the Communications Center is a set of lockers; the second one from the end has an augmentation upgrade in it, so pick the lock or blow it up to get it. In the small room right next to the lockers is a hatch leading down and a ladder leading up; climb up to get some 30.06 ammo and then continue down to the tunnels. Drop down from the ladder and follow the tunnel only about fifty feet before you come across the first spider bot, use an EMP grenade to disable it. At the end of the straight is another spider bot, so throw another grenade down there to get rid of that one too. Hack into the security terminal and disable the camera, and then continue through the tunnels until you reach the blue lasers. To save a few multitools, jump in between the lasers to get to the other side. This can be difficult, but it's not impossible. Just make sure you get a running start and always jump from a corner to another corner. If you haven't tried this before it wouldn't be a bad idea to save first, or you can always use the multitools to disable them. Either way, once you're on the other side, run through the door to reach the room that's filled with radioactive material. If you have Regeneration, Environmental Resistance, or a hazmat suit, then simply run through the room to the door at the other end. If you don't have any of those, then pick the lock to the gate on the left and crawl through the vents that go directly over the room. If you use the vents, then you can head all the way to the ladder that leads to the Command Center, otherwise there are two more spider bots that need to be taken care of. The area you're in now has three levels and a bridge that moves up and down to allow access across. There's a spider bot on the bottom floor, so throw an EMP grenade down to disable it, and do the same to get rid of the one across the gap on the third floor. To make it a sure hit, bounce the grenade off of the right wall so that it lands closer to the bot. When both bots are destroyed or disabled, run through the doorway on the right and down the stairs; use a few multitools to disable the security grid and run down the hall and to the bottom floor, there are lockpicks and rockets down here. Return to the hall and head up the stairs, use the buttons to raise the bridge to the second floor, you can get there by jumping off of the third floor. After getting the lockpick from the box, jump down and raise the bridge to the third level to cross to the other side, there's a dead scientist near the ladder with a key to the Command Center that you need to take. Climb up the ladder to return to the main building at X-51. In this room, break the boxes to get some 10MM ammo and a lockpick, and then head out to find yourself at the long hallway that had the TNT crate in it. Run back to the elevator and take it up to the second floor. Once there, peek out and shoot the TNT crate near the large blast door and the MJ12 trooper. An alarm should sound, but no one comes to investigate. Use the key from the dead scientist in the tunnels to open the blast door and enter the Command Center. Inside, head down the stairs and down the hall; Sam Carter is hanging around here and tells you about how UNATCO has gone to hell. Run down the stairs and talk to Gary Savage, the bald scientist to the south near the computer. He tells you that he can help synthesis a cure to the Grey Death with their UC as soon as his daughter Tiffany returns with a schematic for a part they need. Savage also says that the computer needed to uplink Daedalus is in the room north of where Carter was, and the login and password is "GSavage" and "Tiffany". 018.3 - Uplink Daedalus to the military computer near the control room: Enter the room and hug the east wall, when you reach the corner head west and bring the elevator down by pressing the large rectangular button. Run through the electric current to the west and then south to reach the lift, and head up to the second floor. Run to the computer at the north and log in to uplink Milnet. Now we get to see Daedalus and Icarus merge and form something called Helios. After this happens, Bob Page contacts you and says he has a message for Savage, and would like you to hear it as well. Return to the elevator and down to the command center where Savage is waiting to hear Page's announcement. Page tells Savage that he captured his daughter Tiffany at the Sub Base and is holding her hostage; he wants someone to drop off the UC parts that were stolen when the X-51 team left Area 51. Of course, if JC tries to interfere in any way, Tiffany will be executed. After some convincing, Savage agrees that they have to try to rescue Tiffany instead of give up the UC parts, so leave the Command Center and run to the eastern-most portion of X-51, there's a helipad where you killed the two guys in the very beginning of the mission. Jock is waiting for you as, well as Tong, who accidentally caught the Grey Death. After talking to him, get in the chopper and head to the abandoned gas station where Tiffany is being held. 019.0 - Vandenberg Part 2: The Gas Station Hostage: Objectives: - Rescue Tiffany Savage. 019.1 - Rescue Tiffany Savage: There's never going to be a more straightforward mission in the game; either Tiffany lives, or she doesn't. Run south and talk to the bums, one of them has a key to the sewers. Also, if you didn't give Gilbert Renton a weapon when you killed Jojo, then Sandra Renton will be hanging around with them. I have to admit that I can't remember whether or not Sandra being there affects you getting the sewer key, but there's another one lying next to a dead bum under a pillar at the southern end of the street just in case. Return to the north end of the street and unlock the door to the east with the sewer key. Run through the pipes and climb up the ladder; wait by the hole in the northwest portion of the fence until a trooper walks by, and then knock him out with your prod. Look south near the filling stations, there's a commando walking around that you need to take care of. Wait for him begin walking south and sneak up behind him and knock him out. Behind the southern fence is yet another commando, so knock him out when he has his back to you as well. Make sure to loot his body to get the Garage Key. Now enter the actual gas station, in the back there are some items as well as two small crates. Pick them up and drop them on top of each other near the boiler to the south. Climb up to the ventilation shaft and crawl up to a small section under the roof. There area few more items here as well as a ladder that leads up to the roof. Once you're on the top of the station, look over the east side and find the trooper standing around; shoot a tranquilizer dart at him and then retreat to the middle of the roof. When the commotion dies down, jump to the small building south of the one you're on now. Look near the gate to the junkyard to find the third commando; use your sniper rifle to silently kill him. Once you've killed the three commandos and two troopers, SAVE. No matter how good you are; there's always the chance that something will happen and Tiffany will get killed. Crouch down and drop down into the garage; immediately back into the corner and wait for the MIB and trooper's suspicion to die down. From here, use any weapon to quickly kill them both: your pistol, machine gun, 20HE ammo; take your pick. Try and focus your attention on the Man In Black, if he dies, the explosion usually kills the trooper. However, if you use 20HE ammo, the alternative ammo for the machine gun, just land a shot directly in between the two of them so that it kills them both. I also find that a Gas Grenade works pretty well. This way, if the Man in Black is too close to Tiffany's cell, you can pump him full of tranquilizer darts to avoid his dead man's switch from killing Tiffany. Just have a trail and error session until you find whatever works the best. When the two of them are dead, head into the room that you were sitting on to speak with Tiffany Savage, who gives you a map of the Sub Base. Since everyone is already dead, tell her to make a break for the junkyard; follow her and talk to Jock, who's relieved that both of you are alive and well. Get in the chopper to go to the Sub Base where Tiffany was captured to make a second attempt at retrieving a schematic of the Universal Constructor part. 020.0 - New West Coast Part 1: Sub Base/Ocean Lab: Objectives: - Steal a mini-sub and take it to the Ocean Lab. - Recover a schematic for the UC component the Gary Savage needs. - Meet Gary Savage and Jock on the helipad of the sub base. 020.1 - Steal a mini-sub and take it to the Ocean Lab: Immediately peek around the southwest corner of this area, there's a military bot walking towards you; hide against the wall until it passes by and then run south and take a left when the wall ends. Equip your sniper rifle and aim it at the trooper near the large pillar to the south and take him out. Now face the water and find the two guys on the buildings, one of them has a sniper rifle and the other is holding a flamethrower. On the roof of the southwest building is the sniper, so take him out before he sees you; the one with the flamethrower is walking along the catwalk and should be an easy target. Run south and loot the body of the trooper, use the key he has to open up the blast door on the east side of the large pillar. Run up the spiral staircase, Gary calls you and says that a few of the scientists here used to work for him and can probably help you. Once you reach the end, equip you crossbow and aim it at the catwalk above you, a trooper eventually walks by, so shoot him with a dart and retreat back to the staircase, but don't run down it. Aim your crosshairs at the wall until the trooper and one of his comrades come to attack you. Don't bother dealing with the one you already shot, but put a dart in the other trooper and then run down the stairs, he'll be knocked out before you reach the bottom. Return upstairs and continue, take a left through the break room and activate Cloak; use your Dragon's Tooth to hack away at the trooper on the catwalk. Another trooper might come and investigate, so take him out in a similar fashion before continuing to the next area. Make your way there and find the two ladders, one leading down and the other going up to the helipad. Make a note of this place and return to the main floor. Once outside, head to a small ramp at the northwest leading into the water, if you're quick about it then the military bots won't have enough time to react no matter when they spot you, but being discrete about you actions is always a good idea. Jump into the water and swim to the southwest building, which has a ladder that allows you to access it. There are two divers with tranquilizer darts swimming in this area, so use your crossbow or Dragon's Tooth to get rid of them. Head towards the ladder and look around, there's a trooper walking in this room, so shoot another dart into him and hide in the water. When he's unconscious, climb up the ladder and leave the room through the north door leading to the catwalk. There's another trooper walking around in this room, so use a Cloak/sword combination to make short work of him. Use the elevator to head to the bottom levels; the first sight of this area is a turret, a large metal crate, and a security terminal. What you can't see is the camera directly above you, so hide behind the crate so that the camera can't see you and hack the terminal, turning off the cameras and setting the turrets for "Attack Enemies". At this point, one of the turrets should be attacking a trooper, which attracts more enemies; just keep your sword ready in case one of them makes it to the end of the hall before the turrets tear them apart. When the turrets stop firing, continue down the hall into the main room; make sure that there are four Majestic 12 corpses in the room, and talk to the female scientist, who tells you the login and password to the security terminal that opens the URV bay doors: "Tech", password "Sharkman". Use that combination to log into the terminal right next to you and open the bay doors, and then head upstairs and west to the sub bays. Climb down the ladder and talk to the mechanic, who tells you that you need to open the bay doors if you want to take a sub, but since we've already done that you can just take a sub. 020.2 - Recover a schematic for the UC component the Gary Savage needs: The Ocean Lab has really gone to hell; there are a few things lying around that give clues to what happened. Log into the terminal against the wall and turn off the cameras. Look out of the northeast window; the building with the green beacon is where we need to go. Read the journal of the dead man lying next to you, he writes about a man named Ridley going nuts and betraying everyone. Run up the first three flights of stairs and enter the door to the north and click on the security terminal to shut off the turret going wild in the room. Hack into the computer in this room to read an email from Ridley, who mentions something about the people here pretending to be the Illuminated ones; maybe Ridley was an Illuminati spy? Enter the door to the north and hide from the turret behind the large metal crate. Slowly push it towards the turret; eventually you'll come to a dead MJ12 lying next to a key to the greasle laboratories. The door on the right is unlocked and contains a lockpick, a multitool, and a lot of biocells. The room on the left is locked with eighty-percent lock strength, but contains two lockpicks and multitools each, a lot of ammo, and a few biocells. Hit into them if you want and return to the main hall and continue to the greasle labs. As the name suggests, there are greasles in the room, two of them in fact. Use whatever strategy you've been using to dispose of them, and then climb down the ladder into the water; use your Dragon's Tooth or crossbow to kill the other greasle swimming around. Swim through the doorway to the south, there are three more greasles in this room, so kill them and get the datacube lying in the middle of the floor; it contains the code to the north door - 5690. Also note that the dead scientist has a biocell in case you need it. Return to the room with the ladder and enter the code into the keypad. Swim up and read the datacube on the desk to get another login and password: "Oceanguard" and "Kraken". Continue through the door to the east to reach an unfinished section of the Ocean Lab. There are three greasles, two baby karkians, and one adult karkian in this area; I suggest killing the greasles and baby karkians first with your Dragon's Tooth and then worrying about the adult. To kill the karkians without taking damage, slash your sword and then quickly back up before they can bite you; the greasles should be elementary nowadays. However, we still have the problem of one very large, very frightening karkian in the room to the south; these things take two GEP rockets or God knows how many tranquilizers to go down, so I suggest firing rockets at it. When it's dead, pick up the key to the Crew Module and the recoil weapon mod and head to the east door and unlock it with the key. Run down the dark ramp and take a right and climb down the ladder. Run under the turret and into the elevator and take it down. Run down the ramp, make sure to deactivate the gas grenade, and find the datacube lying against the wall, which says that the survivors had set up a security grid, but they're having trouble with the spiders. Continue through and disable the control panel with a full one hundred-percent strength, and enter the area northeast corner of this room. There's a large spider bot in here, so stay far away enough and destroy it with two rockets. On either side of the room is an elevator that takes you up to areas that are either filled with spider bots or is radioactive, but also have various items like multitools, lockpicks, rockets, and biocells. If you plan on taking the spiders, don't forget that you can use the TNT crates to your advantage. Continue to the east where the elevator should be, but don't bring it down yet. In the water is a drowned MIB with an augmentation upgrade, so take an electric swim and get it. Once back on the floor, bring the elevator down and take it to the top. Run to the security terminal on the right and hack it to activate the bridge, and then cross it to get to the computer where the schematic is. Hack into that one as well to download it, and Gary calls you and says that this is exactly what he needs, and that you should get out to the helipad to meet him and Jock. 020.3 - Meet Gary Savage and Jock on the helipad of the sub base: Begin to leave the Ocean Lab the same way you came, Page will contact you and ask you speak to you through the communicator in the large room. He says that he intercepted you transmission and downloaded the schematics he needs to finish his own UC to continue manufacturing the plague. Oh yeah, and also something about launching a nuclear missile at X-51. Page says that your chances of leaving the Ocean Lab are slim, but doesn't say why. Continue to the exit and receive a transmission from Walton Simons, who mentions that you're going to receive the same kind of treatment that you saw the NSF prisoner get back at the UNATCO detention center. Right before the door that leads back to the excavation area (where the adult karkian was), save your game in case something goes wrong while fighting Simons. Like Gunther, there are two different ways to fight Simons: the easy way and the action-movie way. 1 - If you want to take Simons on like a man, equip your machine gun, using 20HE ammo wouldn't be a bad idea but using regular bullets will also work. When you enter the area, Simons is waiting for you by the yellow truck, and says that he has upgraded versions of the augmentations and is going to wipe the floor with you. As soon as the conversation ends, strafe back and forth while shooting him. If you're using 20HE ammo then you only need to hit him once or twice before he turns invisible and run away, to which then you can take him down with your sword. If you're using regular ammo then this will take a little longer. Also, if you really want to get your hands dirty, get up close to him and take out your Dragon's Tooth to make Simons do the same. Use a strategy similar to killing the baby karkians to kill him. 2 - The much easier way to kill Simons will only involve a single tranquilizer dart, but you won't be able to watch the conversation. Equip your crossbow before you enter the area and strafe out and shoot Simons with a tranquilizer dart BEFORE he speaks with you. Simons, like Gunther and Anna, appear friendly before talking with you, and the tranquilizer dart, although not harming him, causes him to run up to you but remain an ally. Even after the dart wears off, he'll still just stand there, which means that he's open for any kind of attack. The easiest way here would be to launch a GEP rocket at him, or you could simply continue and spare his life, although you will meet him again later on if you do this. The positive side to this is that JC delivers one of my favorite lines in the game during this second encounter. Continue back to the sub bays, note that there's a diver swimming around the area right before the greasle laboratory ladder as well as two that are out of water on the second floor directly above the sub bays. They're equipped with LAMs, too, in case you want them. Take one of the subs back to the Sub Base and retrace your steps, remember that ladder that lead to the helipad? Go there and climb up, Savage is outside waiting for you; he gives you an augmentation upgrade as a token of thanks if you saved Tiffany, as well as receiving five hundred skill points. There's a glitch here that you can use to max out all of your skills; if Gary presents you with the upgrade but your inventory is full, you won't be able to take it but will still get the five hundred skill points. If you talk to him again, regardless of whether or not you cleared your inventory, you receive another five hundred skill points. You can repeat this as many times as you want to become a Master of every skill. Whether or not you take advantage of this glitch, jump into the chopper to head to the missile silo to stop the nuke from wiping out X-51. 021.0 - New West Coast Part 2: The Missile Silo: Objectives: - Abort the launch of the nuclear missile. - Prevent Majestic 12 from sabotaging the missile launch. 021.1 - Abort the launch of the nuclear missile: Savage calls you and tells you that the code to the silo doors is 8456. Immediately look at the watchtower to the southwest and equip your sniper rifle; shoot the guard up there before he spots you. Now equip a LAM and blow up the gate near you, if you have eight or nine LAMs left you can just continue onwards, but otherwise you can get a replacement in a building to the west. If you don't need it then skip the next paragraph. If you want the extra LAM, head southwest down the outside of the compound and kill the dogs; continue down and crawl to the house so that the three guys inside don't see you. Crawl to the door and activate Cloak; run inside, take the cash and key on the table, and then run upstairs and deactivate it. On the thin pillar in the middle of the second floor is a keypad that opens up a stairway to the attic, which contains a medkit, a LAW, a lockpick, and the LAM. Now leave the house through the door on the second floor and drop off the side of the catwalk and crouch down. Crawl to the door and close it, and then head back to the front gate. Inside the main compound, check around to make sure there aren't any bots near you, and then run to the fenced-in area to the northeast. Use a multitool on the elevator or lockpicks on the door and head downstairs to the silo. Use the code Gary gave you (8456) to open up the first two silo doors, and then open up the blast door to the east labeled "Launch Command" with the same code. Hang around the opening of the door until the commando appears at the other end. This brings two Men In Black over to attack you; use tranquilizer darts to knock them unconscious, one of them has an EMP grenade. Once the two of them are taken care of, head down the hall and run through the lasers to attract the third MIB downstairs; use some more darts to take him down, he also has an EMP grenade. Head upstairs and click on the Abort button to the north, and then over to the security terminal to initiate a new launch target: Area 51. Bob Page calls you and advises not to celebrate prematurely, and Gary tells you to make sure that no one tampers with the launch. Head back to the entrance and the elevator, the silo door on the west side of the area labeled "Missile Silo" is now open, so head through and get in front of the hall that heads west; however, do NOT go inside or the lights will go out and the blast door behind you will close. Use your sniper rifle to shoot the MIB at the far end, and quickly kill the two commandos and the other MIB that come running. Once they're dead, run down the hall and into the silo; you're on the fifth level, and you need to clear all of them to complete the objective. Level Six has a single Man In Black on it, you can probably see him from somewhere on the fifth floor; use your pistol to kill him with ease. Now run over to the elevator and take it down to Level Four, there's a repair bot that you could probably use; you can also destroy the two spider bots with GEP rockets on Level Three if you jump on the railing. Drop back onto the floor and take the elevator down to Level Two. The man standing at the top of the crane is Howard Strong, so quickly equip your pistol and kill him before he shoots you with his plasma rifle. At this point, Page calls up and begins to taunt you, saying that you don't stand a chance against him at Area 51. Take the elevator up to Level Six and climb up the ladder to the south. Open up the hatch with the button on the right and climb outside; Jock is waiting for you next to the launch pad. Get into the helicopter to head to the infamous Area 51. 022.0 - Area 51 Part One: The Beginning of The End: Objectives: - Gain access to the Area 51 bunker. - Gain access to Sector 3. - Talk to Helios to gain access to Sector 4. 022.1 - Gain access to the Area 51 bunker: Jock drops you off near the helipad and warns you that there's a sniper in the watchtower to the west, so quickly equip your rifle and take him down. Head towards the tower when you're finished to receive a message from Tracer Tong, who sends you a map of the area and tells you that he's back in the game and is here to provide support. Run over to the north railing and destroy the two bots walking around to clear the area; they're both a good distance away so that there isn't much danger of being attacked. Head down the ramp and towards the building to the northeast; if you didn't kill Walton Simons then he runs out of the house to meet you, so use either of the two strategies that were discussed in the Ocean Lab mission to get past him. However, it's noticeably easier to hit Walton with a tranquilizer this time around since you have more time to aim. Like at the Ocean Lab, he'll grunt in pain as if he were being knocked out, but instead just stands there; feel free to judge him as you see fit, a quick swipe from your Dragon's Tooth to the back will take him down. On the other hand, if you talk to Simons and want to fight him, run around the building until he looses track of you, which means you have a free shot at him. Afterwards, head inside the building that he came out of and pick up the tower key lying next to the dead solider. Run back to the tower and unlock the door, just be careful not to set off the two LAMs planted near each ladder. Climb down the ladder on the right and break open the boxes to get an EMP grenade and some 30.06 ammo. From here, there are two different paths to take: 1 - Climb back up to ground level and head up the one on the left to reach the security terminal. Hack into it and open the large bunker door; climb down and head north to reach it. Hack into the other security terminal on the left and turn off the cameras, you can hang around there and wait for the two bots to appear and then take them down with your GEP gun. Head northeast down the ally and enter the room that's filled with spider bots. Run to the far side of the room and pick up a TNT crate, which you can put next to the northern door and blow it up. Run inside and turn the power to the elevator online. Now run back down the hall and to the northwest where the elevator is; you can take that all of the way down to the bunker blast door. 2 - After the two LAMs are diffused, run outside to the southwest corner of the area, there's a large hole in the side of the hanger that we're going to use to kill the two commandos and the Man In Black. Throw a LAM through the hole to the northeast and wait for it to explode; the battle music will start up by die out after a few moments, so head inside the hanger via the east opening. If this worked out as well as it did when I played through, then the three bad guys are dead, and there's no one else here that will give you a problem. In the southwest corner of the room is a large gray cylinder; use lockpicks to open the door, and then throw a LAM inside so that it lands on the platform in the middle. Don't worry if it doesn't stay on, it seems to bounce around the fan if it falls off. When the fan is destroyed, head back to the tower and replace the two LAMs you used, and then head to the cylinder and jump inside and down into the water below. Swim north and find the body of the guy who has a laser modification and return to where the stairs are; run down the hallway and disable the camera and turret with the security terminal against the wall. Run to the elevator and take it down; when you reach the bottom you can run through the lasers without worrying about a bot attack. Run to the catwalk and down the two ladders to reach the opening of the bunker. 022.2 - Gain access to Sector 3: Run south and hide behind the right side of the crates, break open the box and then crawl under the railing to the west. Jump over the lasers diagonally the same way you did in the tunnels of X-51 and continue down the hall, but run back when the yellow thing begins beeping unless you want to be killed when it explodes. When it's safe, run over to where it was and head towards the communicator; Morgan Everett contacts you with a proposition: Kill Bob Page and allow the Illuminati to take control of Area 51, bringing them back to power. That objective appears in your secondary objectives. Now head up the hallway to the north and destroy the bot walking around. Continue around the bend, past the barracks, and into the rec room; you can use multitools to open the door, which blocks the camera from setting off the alarm. There's a Woman In Black and a trooper sitting in the far corner, so you can either kill them with a pistol or activate Cloak and read the datacube on the ping-pong table, which has a code to the barracks. If you killed the two bad guys in here you can hack the security terminal and turn off the camera, but it's not important either way. Run back to the barracks and enter the code from the datacube (0169) and enter, the cubicle thing in the left corner with the dead body inside has a key that unlocks the blast door to Sector 3. Use the 0169 code to open it and return to the crossroads near the communicator. Head east and take out the commando walking up and down the hall. Use your sniper rifle to kill the trooper on the walkway; from here you can either kill the other two troopers and the commando or use Cloak to reach the blast door. If you plan to kill them, run halfway down the hall and look to the left corner to see the first trooper on the walkway. Now run to the back of the hall and wait for the commando to walk into view so that you can snipe him. Head over to the left corner of the hall and peek around the corner, use your rifle to kill the trooper on the crane. From here, or if you're using Cloak, run to the ladder on the right and climb up, you can unlock the blast door and enter inside. Continue down the hall and hear a message from Paul and then Bob Page, saying that he's sending the man who killed your parents up with the elevator to kill you. This man happens to be a Man In Black with two troopers on each side of him. Quickly hide behind the crates on the right and peer around the right side; use your pistol to kill the two troopers and then the MIB. Killing the two troopers first is better because they're easier to kill with headshots and the explosion from the dead MIB might not kill them. Once they're all dead, look behind the wall to the west and pick up a lockpick before heading down the elevator. 022.3 - Talk to Helios to gain access to Sector 4: Immediately after the area loads, Tong contacts you through the communicator and tells you that Everett is using you to bring the Illuminati back to power. Of course, he then proposes destroying Area 51 and sending the world into a Dark Age. He also sends you a map of Sector 3 before cutting communication. Once that's finished, walk past the doorway, hide in the back right corner, and equip your sniper rifle; there are two troopers on the catwalk, one has a GEP Gun and the other a machine gun. The one with the GEP gun can be seen if you look between the gray building and the yellow thing to the northwest, and the other one is directly west. Once they're both dead, walk over to the forklift and raise the lift using the button on the other side; hitch a ride on it and hop onto the crates that are next to the grate. Crawl through it and up the stairs, Helios contacts you and tells you to meet him in the Aquinas Hub before he will allow you to gain access to Sector 4. Continue past the blast door until you reach the top; listen to the MIB and the mechanic talk and then knock out the Man In Black with your prod. Do the same to the mechanic and wait for the trooper who saw you through the glass to enter the room. Hide near the stairwell and wait for him, activate Cloak when he appears and take him out. Now, still cloaked, drop down the ladder in the southeast corner and attack the sniper hanging around there; pick up the 30.06 ammo lying around while you're there. Climb back up and head through the door near the ladder, past the hallway is a room with a lockpick, a biocell, and a datacube with the login/password "Area51" and "bravo13". Climb up the ladder in this room and turn on your light, there's a dead mechanic with a biocell lying next to some 10MM ammo and a datacube with the code to the explosives locker: 4225. Return to the room where the MIB was and login to the security terminal (area51/bravo13) and open the Augmentation Containment as well as the blast door shown by the first camera. Once you're finished in this area, head down the stairs, past the Aquinas Hub again, and onto the catwalk where the GEP gun trooper and was. Hop onto the railing and look down, kill the baby karkian and the greasle with your sniper rifle; you can kill the adult karkian with a GEP rocket. Continue west and look down at the pool with the large pillars in it, there are two greasles swimming around, although you might only be able to kill one of them. In order to get down without picking the lock to the stairwell door or taking damage, run over to the portion of the catwalk where the machine gun trooper was and jump off the east side; if you land on the yellow thing you won't get hurt. Head west and go down the stairs to the right of the pool. If you didn't kill the two greasles swimming around, equip your Dragon's Tooth and get ready to attack it. In the southeast corner of the pool is a dead mechanic; under him is a key to the stairwell. Leave the pool and head to the northernmost area of this room; two spider bots are guarding the lowest level where the blast door is. Use a GEP rocket or EMP grenade on each of them and head through the door to reach the reactors. On the lower level of each reactor is a gray; take both of them out with your machine gun or pistol, but make sure to stay far away enough so that they don't bombard you with radiation. After that, head through the doorway to the northwest and up the ladder, a mechanic is hanging around and tells you a little bit about the grays. He also casually mentions the code to the Aquinas Hub, 1038, so head back to the stairwell (we have the key now) and enter the Aquinas Hub. Head south in this room and climb down the ladder, there are two grays on the lowest level near the radioactive barrels, so kill them. Up the stairs to the north is a commando walking around, killing him would be a good idea as well. Now head southeast, down the stairs, and get a map of Sector 4 from the datacube near the dead mechanic. Continue east through the doorway and look down to levels of stairs, there's a trooper walking around that you can kill with your pistol. When he's dead, walk down one level and unlock the blast door with the code from the beginning: 4225; there are some TNT crates and rockets. Walk down the next flight of stairs and enter the stairwell, if you look between the steps on the last level and activate your light you can see a greasle, so kill it. Now run back up and pick up a TNT crate. Carry it up to the highest level and place it next to you. Fire a shot from your pistol at the very large spider bot walking on the bottom level to bring it closer to you. When it gets close enough, throw the TNT crate over the side so that it blows up right next to it; you can use as many crates as you need to blow it up. Return to the room with the ladder and continue down the north hallway where the commando was. Run down the stairs and head east to the Aquinas Control; take the elevator to the third floor and run over to the integration system to talk with Helios, who tells you it's plan: Integrating it's systems with JC's so that it can become the perfect combination of logical machine and benevolent human, the ideal ruler. It tells you to deactivate the uplink locks and then return here to integrate. This third and final ending appears on your secondary objectives as well. When that's finished, take the elevator back down to the second floor and enter the area right before the stairs leading to the long hallway. Two security bots being controlled by Helios activate and begin patrolling the area, which is good considering that three commandos are coming to attack you. Take cover in the lower levels near the elevator and allow the bots to kill the commandos; when the commotion dies down you can check up on the bots, if both of them are still intact you're in good shape but it doesn't really matter if any of them are destroyed, as long as they served their purpose killing the three commandos. Now head through the doorway to the south and look west; a blast door opens and a cargo transport begins moving towards you, there's a Man In Black and a trooper with a GEP gun on it. If you can quickly kill the GEP gun trooper, that's great, but don't feel that you have to risk it; you can always hide upstairs and let the bots take care of it, although they might not be able to kill both of them. If you want to give them a hand, peer over the railing and take pot shots at the two bad guys, preferably the GEP gun trooper first. Once they're both dead, head back to the large room with the big spider bot in it. Run down the stairs and to the southeast corner, there's a dead trooper with some 30.06 ammo. Now run north to the large blast door, which Helios opens for you, and enter the smaller blast door. When you reach the communicator, Paul contacts you and brings you up to date about what's going on in the outside world. Helios has been cutting the power to government buildings and ordering roadblocks to be disbanded in Hong Kong, and the people are obeying because it's what they want. He brings up the pros and cons of your three objectives, and basically tells you to do what you think is right. After that, continue north to Sector 4. The first room has a bunch or large tanks at each corner of the room. Head left towards the blue barrels; when you reach them the door at the other end of the room will blow off and come flying at you, so back up to avoid being blown up. Continue north, loot the body of the scientist to get another augmentation upgrade, and go through the door. Stand in front of the window and allow the grays to see you; wait for them to come to you and then kill them with your machine gun. Use the security terminal to turn off the radiation generators and head to the door on the opposite side of the now-safe room. Right about now Alex calls you and sends you a schematic of the blue-fusion reactors as well as three of the four numbers the make up the code to deactivate them: 724*. Before entering the room where Bob Page is, save your game; the area here is the "Crossroads" of Deus Ex, this is where you want to start out if you're going to reload your game to get all three endings. 023.0 - Area 51 Part Two: The End: Objectives: - Merge with Helios: Deactivate the uplink locks on the Aquinas Router at the east end of Sector 4, thus allowing Helios to exchange information with your augmentations. Together with Helios, administrate the world with absolute knowledge and reason. - New Dark Age: First, go to the coolant control room at the northwest corner of Sector 4 and cut off the coolant to the reactors, then return to the reactor lab in Sector 3 to finish the job. Destroying the global communications hub will plunge the world into anther Dark Age - dark but perhaps free from global tyranny. - Join the Illuminati: 1 - Bring down the four blue-fusion reactors in Page's bunker then go to the infusion control room on the upper level to cut power to the defense systems. 2 - Kill Bob Page and clear the way for the former Illuminati leaders to restore the age-old secret government. Rule the world with compassion and an invisible hand alongside Morgan Everett. 023.1 - Merge with Helios: This is by far the easiest ending to get. Head east and talk to Bob Page; afterwards run to the door north of Page, you can activate Ballistic Protection to absorb some of the damage from the turrets. Blow up the door north of you with a GEP rocket and run inside, turning the lever will close the door to the UC chamber, preventing more spider bots from being cloned and replace the ones you destroy. Speaking of which, the two spiders hanging around the hall are probably coming after you, so equip some EMP grenades or your GEP gun to take them out. Now head east to the blast door to the south. Bypass the 90 percent keypad and head inside, Helios gives you instructions on how to deactivate the uplink locks. Press the two buttons marked "Engage" on each side of the room and then login to the computer (Icarus, password "panopticon"). Click on "Engage Primary Router" and then head back to the Aquinas Hub. Run to the integration unit to trigger the ending cinematic. 023.2 - New Dark Age: This one's a little more complicated than the last one, but still nothing that could be called confusing. Like before, head east and have the conversation with Page, but this time head to the doorway to the south and climb up the ladder; you definitely want Ballistic Protection here (or you could try and shoot the turret with your rifle). After the ladder, head forward and get onto the lift; press the down button, but jump off onto the ramp to the south about a quarter of the way down. Run west and hack into the security terminal; activate the security bot to aid you in fighting the three or four grays running around. As the bots are taking care of the grays, open the door near the terminal with lockpicks or multitools to close off the UC. Once the top area is secure, equip your GEP gun and fire a rocket at the UC control room's door that's on the lower level to the north. Now run to the southeast corner of the top floor and into a room that's highly radioactive. Go around the right side of the large tank and down the ramp, there's a repair bot hanging around that you can use. Northwest of this area is a short hallway that leads to a room with a cabinet and a footlocker in it. On the middle shelf of the cabinet is a datacube with the code to the coolant system: 2242. Now return to the room with the repair bot and head down the ramp to the northwest. Activate Cloak and run to the northeast corner and activate the bot with the security terminal, then run to the UC control room and close off the UC that is cloning adult karkians. The patrol bot should be fending off the karkians that are already roaming the area, so use that as a distraction to kill the four or five karkians and the handful of greasles. After they're all dead, use the repair bot to refill your energy and head to the blast door marked "Coolant B13" to the northwest and enter the code 2242 to open it. Open up the second door with the button and immediately equip your sniper rifle and kill the commando walking away from you down the hall. When he dies, take out your machine gun and climb up the ladder to the left of you; there's a trooper walking around the catwalk, so use your machine gun to kill him before he can throw a LAM at you. Crouch down and crawl west; when you reach the doorway, stand up and walk around the winding path until you reach the catwalk overlooking the pumps. There's a trooper on this catwalk, so be prepared to kill him. Also, there's another trooper on the lower level in the very northwest corner; the best way to kill him is with the sniper rifle. When both of them are dead, climb down the ladder to the north and peek around the corner at the bottom, there's a trooper standing right outside of the doorway. Once he's dead, run to the yellow control panel and press the button labeled "flush system". Now run back to the reactors where the mechanic gave you the code to the Aquinas Hub. At the bottom of each reactor is a button that you need to activate, so turn on Environmental Resistance and run down the stairs and into the very bottom of the reactor. Do this on each side and then run up to the control room where the mechanic is. Three buttons against the wall will now be available to interact with, but before you press them you should kill the mechanic, otherwise he'll panic and pull a shotgun out at you. Once the three buttons are pressed, press the main switch on the control panel labeled "Engage" to finish the job. The screen will start to rumble, and a few seconds later the cinematic will kick in. 023.3 - Join the Illuminati: Once again, run east and talk to Bob; like in the previous ending, activate Ballistic Protection and run south to the doorway. Climb up the ladder and, instead of taking the lift, head through the doorway to the southwest. Run down the stairs and to the end of the hall; the blue-fusion reactor is at the very end. Alex gave you three of the four numbers in the code, so you can use trial-and-error to get it right: 7243. After you shut the reactor down, two patrol bots activate and try to find you. Equip your GEP gun and destroy them. Now run back to the lift and take it down, jumping onto the ramp to the south after the lift drops about a quarter of the way. Run west and hack into the security terminal to activate the patrol bot, allowing it to fight the grays that come to attack you. Unlock the UC control door and close off the UC. Now run to the connecting catwalk to the north to find the second blue-fusion reactor. Shut it down and continue to the southeast corner of the top floor and enter the room with the radioactive tank in it. Activate Environmental Resistance and run around the left side of the tank to find the third blue- fusion reactor. Use the same code as before (7243) and then head down the ramp to the west. Use the repair bot to refill your bioenergy and then run down the ramp to enter the large area with the karkians and the greasles. Run to the northeast section of the area to find the fourth and final blue-fusion reactor. If you're low on bioenergy you can use the repair bot a little north of there to refill it. Once all four reactors have been deactivated, run to the southeast portion of the area and take the lift back up to the area where you talked to Page. Run around him and enter the doorway to the north. There are two spider bots to the left of you, but if you just take a right and run you won't have to worry about them. Continue down the hallway and up to the blast door labeled "Aquinas Router". To the right of that is a yellow control panel with a single button on it. Press it to kill Page and complete the mission. Congratulations, you've just completed Deus Ex.
