The ex-cop-turned-bum will now help you kill the cleaners. Press square if you don't want him to follow you. Go back out the door and go down two floors.

Go out the door that takes you outside. Jump over the railing and climb into Mona's apartment through the window. Pick up the ammo and painkillers scattered throughout. When you're done, head to the door with the diagonal front. 1.7A - PART I CHAPTER 7: The Million Dollar Question ---------------------------------------------------- From the elevator, head into the suite straight ahead where there are two cleaners. Head into the bathroom for painkillers. Go out onto the balcony and jump through the opening in the fence to the left. Go inside the suite and more cleaners will be waiting. Go up to the second floor where five cleaners will be waiting for you. Check the bathroom for more painkillers. Go into the other room for a cutscene.

Turn back the other way towards another set of stairs. Two cleaners will be there and will throw grenades at you. Walk past the stairs and you'll see a door in front of you. Jump over the wooden crate to the left of the door and pick up the ammo in the box. Now go back and head up the stairs. Enter the first room and pick up the painkillers. You'll be able to see two cleaners down below through the window. There is also a switch in this room. I don't know what it does but I do know that it does not matter whether you pull the switch or not. Go back to the stairs and go up again. Pick up the Molotov cocktails lying beside the steps to the door. Open the door and walk along the ledge to the right. There will be cleaners down below but don't worry about them. Keep walking along the ledge until you come to a door that will slide open. Go in and you will see a switch. If you pull the switch, it will create a hole in the wall, which will allow the cleaners below to get to the next area. Therefore, if you don't want to fight these cleaners then don't pull the switch. Head to the door on the other side of the room and go in. There will be a lot of cleaners here. Some will be on the other side of the walkway, while others will be shooting at you from below. Watch out for grenades. When you get to the bottom of the stairs, make a 180 degree turn and walk until you hear a loud explosion. Head out the door on the right and a cutscene will occur.

Head outside through another door on your right. Two cleaners will be hiding behind the wall in front of you and another one will be up top to your right. Two more cleaners will come in from the door on the far right. Head to the top of the watch tower for ammo and painkillers, then head into the door where the last two cleaners came from. Go through the door straight ahead and through the double doors to your left. Two cleaners will be walking towards you from the left. More cleaners will be at either side of the hall. Go down the left side of the hall and enter the first accessible door on the right for ammo and painkillers. Continue down the hall and enter the next door on the left. Listen to the news report and pick up some more painkillers. When you're done, continue down the hall. More cleaners will be waiting for you around the corner.

On the next floor, go through the double doors on the left. Ignore the cleaners below and jump across the gap to enter the other side of the building. Go into the elevator and jump up to the next floor. Exit the double doors to your left. Three commandos will be in the room down the walkway. Enter the door to the right and go up two floors. Kill the cleaner here and go through the double doors on the left. There will be cleaners and commandos in the room down the walkway. Head to the door straight ahead and pick up the painkillers on the floor before exiting this room.

Go down the hall on your right. Enter the room on your right just before the gap in the floor. Wait for the explosion before proceeding. Go through the hole in the wall and shoot the explosives on the table in the northwest corner of the room. After the explosion, jump onto the ledge and make your way to the other hole in the wall. Go down the hall to your right. Make your way down past the debris. When you get to the bottom, turn around and head back the other way. At the end of the hall, drop down below where two cleaners will be waiting. Head through the door where another cleaner will be waiting. Head towards the stack of wood in the middle of the hallway and wait for an explosion before proceeding. Go through the double doors where more cleaners will be waiting. Pick up the painkillers from the bin. Head towards the edge of the hole in the floor and kill any cleaners that you can see below. With your back to the wall, drop down onto the tables below and take out the remaining cleaners. Drop down again onto the stack of boxes. Head out the double doors and go down the hall on your right. Go through the hole in the wall on your left. You have to make it to the opening on the right side of the room. Stay in between the pillars and away from the walls. When you get close to the opening, a large wooden plank will fall down. Wait for it to fall before proceeding out the opening. 2.4 - PART II CHAPTER 4: Routing Her Synapses --------------------------------------------- Go up the ramp to the left then go up the stairs. A cleaner will be shooting at you from above. Continue up the stairs and go through the first door you encounter. A cleaner will shoot at you from the upper floor across from you. Go straight ahead to the opening on the other side of this area. As you make your way there, two cleaners will be shooting at your from the upper floor behind you. Ignore them for now. Go up the ramps and go through the first opening to your left. Now is the time to take out all the cleaners who were shooting at you from above. Go up the stairs and three cleaners will come out from the opening at the top of the stairs. Kill them and continue to the top and through the opening, where a lone gunman will be waiting behind the crates. Step into the lift and press the switch to go down. Pick up the painkillers on the wall to your right and head through the door with the danger warning above it. Several cleaners will be waiting for you behind the brick wall to the right. Make a right at the intersection and go forward up the ramp. More cleaners will come down the stairs. There will also be a cleaner shooting at you from the stairs on the far side. Go up the stairs until you reach an opening on your right. A cleaner will be waiting there. Go inside then make a right. There will be a cleaner hiding behind some boxes in front of you and another one to the left. As you move farther into this area, a group of commandos will enter from where you just entered. Then another group of commandos will enter from the door with the danger warning beside it. Be sure to pick up the painkillers along the wall before going in through that door. Make your way through the next area and through the door on the other side. There will be several cleaners goofing off to your left. Kill them and more cleaners will emerge from the opening in the brick wall to the right. Head through this passageway, then make a right. Go forward then drop down to the floor below. 2.5 - PART II CHAPTER 5: Out of the Window ------------------------------------------ As soon as this chapter starts, go out the opening and to the left. Wait there as a cleaner will jump down from the floor you were just on, then kill him when he comes out. Go down the hall then make a right at the end. Continue forward and you will hear an explosion. Max will speak to you. After he does, a cleaner will come out through the door at the end of the hall. Kill him and pick up the painkillers on the wall. Go through the door and there will be a cleaner crouching down straight ahead of you. There will also be two other cleaners and a commando on top of the wood structure. Proceed to the door on the other side of this room. As soon as you enter the next room, you'll hear another explosion. Make your way down the hall and to the door at the end. I would recommend saving your game here as the next part is very difficult if you're playing for the first time. Go through the door and pick up the ammo. Head towards the edge of the building while facing the door on your right. A cutscene will occur. Immediately afterwards, a cleaner will bust down the door you're facing. Kill him then equip the Dragunov and look down below. Three guys will run towards Max. Two of them will be at the lower part of the screen, while the other will be running along the top part of the screen. Keep an eye on Max's health. If he dies, it's game over for you. Crouch down, enter Bullet Time and pick them off one by one. After killing each one, you should zoom out so you can see where the others are. When all three are dead, head past the busted down door, past the empty room and into the next room. There will be a cleaner hiding behind a box straight ahead. Get onto the scaffolding and take out all the enemies below with your Dragunov. The enemies will come from different directions but most of them will be near the small two-storey building to the left. Again, watch for Max's health. When Max reaches his destination, a cutscene will occur. After you kill the last enemy down below, another cutscene will occur. Afterwards, two more enemies will emerge from behind that two-storey building. You can kill one of them but the other will be out of shooting range. Pick up the painkillers in the bin behind you and head back into the building. Keep backtracking until you reach the area that had the painkiller rack on the wall. Hiding behind the brick wall are two commandos. Kill them and continue down the hall. Ignore the opening on the left and make a right instead. Continue forward and you will see an explosion at the end of the hall. Several enemies will come out through there. Head through the door, pick up the painkillers in the bin and prepare for more enemies around the corner to the left. After killing them, head through the door at the end. Go down the hall and you will see two cleaners ahead. Kill them and head out onto the scaffolding. There will be a third cleaner at the top of the stairs. Next, kill the cleaner who was out of range earlier. He's down to the right. More cleaners will come out of the small two-storey building. Once again, there will be one who is out of range so you'll have to find another vantage point. Kill all the ones you can see and a cutscene will occur. Afterwards, go up the stairs and re-enter the building. Head to the right and drop down onto the crate below. 2.6 - PART II CHAPTER 6: The Genius of the Hole ----------------------------------------------- Take out the sniper directly ahead of you then pick up the painkillers. Head out onto the scaffolding and kill the enemies down to your left. After Max gives you the order, head back into the building to find a different vantage point. Make a right and go down the hall. There will be several commandos here. Go through the door with the hard hat logo and you might encounter more commandos if they hadn't already run out into the hall you were just in. Go out the door at the other side. Head towards the right and pick up the Molotov cocktails in the box. Proceed onto the scaffolding. Take out the commando down to your right who is shooting at Max. After you kill him, move your aim a little to the right. Four enemies will emerge down below. After you kill them, you'll have a short conversation with Max. When that ends, head back into the building and ambush the two enemies when they come down the scaffolding. Head back onto the scaffolding and go up the ramp and into the building again. As you head down the hall, you will encounter more enemies. Go out the door with the hard hat logo. Down below to your left will be a couple of commandos. Kill them then drop down. Head through the opening and across the bridge. You'll be greeted on the other side by a commando. At the end of the bridge, there will be more enemies to the left. Pick up the painkillers on the wall and make your way to the other side until you reach the scaffolding. To your right will be two commandos. Kill them then make your way down the scaffolding.

When the mobsters die, head out onto the street and take care of the rest of the cleaners yourself. Continue down the street then make a left. Two cleaners will come out of the alley on the right and a third will come out of a door a little farther ahead. Enter that door and a cleaner van will arrive up ahead.

Head out the opening to your right then down the stairs to your left. Halfway down, drop into the hole where there is no railing. Make a right and go up the boards. A board will fall down in front of you, creating an opening into the next room. Drop down and walk along the left wall to avoid the many explosions. Jump around the crates blocking your way then shoot the barrel behind them. Go through the newly created opening and head left. A wall will collapse on your left. Wait here until a beam crashes through the wall just ahead. Get onto the beam and go up, then jump off onto the roof on your right. Head to the right and drop down. Proceed down the hall and a cardboard character will crash through the wall on the left. Go through the opening then through the other opening on the right. Make a left and do not stop as you walk straight forward until you reach the wall. Stay there as a massive structure will start rolling down the room.

There will be a cutscene when they are all dead. Afterwards, another commando will appear on the balcony straight ahead to the right. After you kill him, a commando will come out of the main manor doors to the right. Head in the main doors and kill the commando there. As you head up the steps, the doors will shut behind you. Look straight up and you'll see that the ceiling is divided into six tiles. They will start to fall one after another. After the first one falls, go directly under where it used to be and wait there until all the other tiles have fallen. A commando will now come out of the door. Go in and there will be another commando beside the piano. Head through the glass door on the right to an area with several more commandos. When they're all dead, a cutscene will occur. Afterwards, you'll see more commandos in the hallway behind the glass doors in front of you. Head inside, make a left and enter the room on the right. Check the cabinet for painkillers then head out the other side but quickly head back in or else you will be crushed by a shelf falling from the left. Stay in this room as a cleaner and a commando will come charging in. After you've killed them, head back into the library and kill the cleaner shooting at you from up top. Mona will enter the second floor of the library and will exchange gunfire with some commandos up there. After a short conversation with Mona, more commandos will enter the library on the floor you are on. Go through the door they came from and pick up the painkillers on the bench. Enter the door at the end of the hall to end the first half of this chapter. 3.7B - PART III CHAPTER 7: CONTINUED ------------------------------------ Step forward a little bit and you will see a commando in the right corner and another in the left corner of the room. Head towards the right corner and kill them both. Mona will enter the balcony at the lower left corner and kill the commandos who have arrived at the other balconies. After Mona says, "I'm on it, Max", the door will open and more commandos will come charging out. Head out the door and proceed to the stairs where an enemy will be waiting. Head up the stairs and you will be greeted by a cleaner to the left. More enemies will come out from a room at the end of the hall. Enter that room and search the lockers for ammo and painkillers. Head to the monitor in the corner and press square for a cutscene. Head into the next room and out the door on the left. Cleaners and bodyguards will come out the door on the right. Go through that door and you'll see commandos down below to your left. As you head down, another commando will be waiting behind the bottom of the stairs. After you kill him, another enemy will come down the stairs. Head back up and through the door to your left. After Max speaks to Mona, go through the door on your left and kill the commando waiting there. Go through the door at the end of the hall then out the door on your left. Go straight down the hall and out into the courtyard. Kill all the commandos here or let Mona kill them for you. Either way, make sure you use up all your painkillers before the last one dies because your current health level will carry over to the next chapter, but your painkiller and ammo inventory will not. This chapter will end when the last commando is killed. 3.8A - PART III CHAPTER 8: That Old Familiar Feeling ---------------------------------------------------- Head out the door and a bodyguard will be waiting to your left. After you kill him, something will come crashing down behind you. Turn around and quickly head into the panic room and close the door. Pick up the painkillers in here and wait for the explosion. Go back outside and continue forward until you see a hole in the wall on the right. Drop down and you will encounter an enemy. Kill him then head through the door on the right. There will be two more enemies here hiding behind some boxes. Quickly head to the room on the right and head up the stairs. Jump over the gap and out the door at the end. Run down the hall and an enemy will jump out from the corner. Head into the door on the right to end this half of the chapter. 3.8B - PART III CHAPTER 8: CONTINUED ------------------------------------ Go up the stairs and through the door. Someone will throw a grenade at you so quickly go back out the door and wait for the explosion. Now enter the door again. There will be two enemies waiting for you at the top of the steps. Kill them and continue up the steps where another two enemies will charge down at you. Kill them and a scene with Vlad will occur. Although you can see Vlad, your shots will not reach him. Wait for the barrier to open and prepare for two bodyguards inside the room Vlad just went into. When you've killed them, collect all the ammo and painkillers you need in the room. Check the TV and Woden's answering machine if you want to. When you are ready, head into the elevator and go up. When the elevator door opens, there will be a commando shooting at you directly in front of the elevator and another one near the bed. Keep your back against the right wall as you kill these two because there is another commando on the balcony. When the first two commandos are dead, kill the one on the balcony. There are more painkillers beside the bed. Go through the door along the right wall and Vlad will blow up the stairs leading up to where he is. Vlad will go into hiding but will occasionally pop up at the top of the stairs and shoot at you. If you shoot back at him, he will go back into hiding. However, you cannot kill Vlad here, so there's no need to empty your entire clip into him. On the wall, there is a switch. Press it and the lift will start coming down. Before the lift reaches the bottom, Vlad will press the switch on his side to bring the lift back up. A commando will now enter from the door at the top of the stairs. Take him out and press the switch again. Once the lift reaches the bottom, get into it and press the switch to go up. Crouch down. If Vlad appears at the top of the stairs again, shoot at him to make him go away. Soon, Vlad will escape through the door and two commandos will enter. When the lift reaches the top, prepare yourself for the final battle. Equip the MP5 and restore your health. I would also recommend saving here. When you are ready, go through the door and a cutscene will occur. ***************** FB - Final Battle ***************** You must shoot down the supports that are holding up the platform Vlad is standing on. Be careful because Vlad will be throwing grenades at you. If you take too long, the grenades will cause holes in the floor you're walking on, making the fight extremely difficult. Also, avoid shooting the glass as it prevents you from plummeting to your death. Use the scope on the MP5 to aim at the supports (X). --X--------X-- Ceiling \ / \ / \ / \/ Wires /\ / \ / \ / \ -------------- Platform (Please excuse the crappiness of my diagrams.) After shooting down three of the supports, Vlad's platform will fall down. If you look up again, you will see a pointy structure held up by four wires. Be careful because Vlad will continue throwing grenades at you. You must shoot down the four round pegs (O) holding up these wires. Again, use the scope on the MP5. ---------------------------- Ceiling \ \ / / \ \ / / (The inner 'V' represents the pointy structure. \ \ / / The outer 'V' represents the wires holding up the \ \ / / pointy structure.) \O O/ ---------------------------- Platform After shooting down all four of the pegs, the structure will fall onto Vlad's platform. Vlad will now start alternating between shooting at you and throwing Molotov cocktails at you. Whenever he appears at the edge of his platform, just keep shooting him. After a few bullets, he will die. Congratulations, you have just beat Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne. Sit back and enjoy the ending. Beat the game on Dead on Arrival mode to see the second ending. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- =========== Easter Eggs =========== Secret Memorial (Credit: FAQ GOD, Biolum8052) --------------- In Part I Chapter 7 Continued, after you make your way down the scaffolding, walk along the ledge of the building and go past the open window on your right.
