Max Payne 3 golden gun parts and clues guide

Chapter 11: Sun Tan Oil, Stale Margaritas, and Greed (6 parts, 8 clues)

Above: All collectibles from chapter 11

Clue 1: Notes on Max

After killing the initial group of baddies, check the room across from Max’s. There on a dresser and you’ll find a yellow note.

Clue 2: Passos’ Bed

From Max’s room, head down the hall and enter the next room on your right. Investigate the bed for a clue.

Super Sport: part 1

Enter the kitchen through the right-hand entrance and proceed through the next door with the plastic flaps, then immediately turn left and look at the ground.

Clue 3: Blood Trail

Just after you close the two fuel valves, you’ll enter a room where a sliding door opens to reveal the Panama Canal. Observe the bloodstain on the wooden deck for a clue.

Super Sport:
 part 2

Once outside, climb the stairs to the upper deck and take out the enemies. Instead of heading inside the gym, go around the right side to find a part.

Clue 4: Discarded Newspaper

After you enter the room where some thugs are trying to get through a wall, check the circular table in the middle of the room for a newspaper.

Clue 5: Pried Wall

Simply inspect the torn up wall in the room for another clue.

Clue 6: Daphne’s Passport

Leave the room where you found the last two clues and start heading down the hall. Enter the first door on your right and check the floor behind the desk for a clue.

Clue 7: Daphne’s Jewelry Box

Go back to the hall and enter what would be the third door on your right if you started at the beginning of the corridor. Take out the enemies and then inspect the giant blue jewelry box in the room near the bed.

: part 1

From the helipad, head inside towards the bridge. Keep an eye to your left, looking out for a portrait of the captain. Shoot this portrait and the safe behind it to reveal a gun part.

: part 2

After you meet up with Passos, you’ll be caught up in a series of firefights. Once you can move freely (and safely), do not join Passos inside. Instead, turn around, sticking to the right-hand side. Backtrack far enough and you’ll find this part.

Super Sport
: part 3

After you use the zip line, take out the immediate threat and then head around to the right side of the building. You’ll find this part on the ground near the barbed-wire fencing.

: part 3

After you open the security gate, head to the top of the stairs. Once at the top level, you’ll notice another staircase to your right leading down – take it to find another part.

Clue 8: Visitor Center Display

In the all the green room, inspect the display featuring two men for another clue.

    Thanks for the the effort. I'm a dummy and I miss things but MP3 is a hell of a lot of fun to play and I like the idea of golden guns. Though, on my machine, the videos have been cut out or just don't work, the first 4 chapters have been just what I needed. Short and concise. I'll continue tomorrow. I've had no problem finding all clues and golden parts.

    Guides not very informative. Like for example some parts if you haven't played the game through already you are unsure whether you've gotten to it yet, or missed it. For example: "Just after the conversation between Max and Rodrigo, turn Max around. There’s a gun part just behind him near the waterfall, one which you may have seen before the cutscene." Now I restarted just before this part because I'd played on and because of the little information I thought I'd missed it, so I restarted to find out I'd not missed it and I'd restarted for nothing. Okay, fair enough. Maybe that isn't the fault of this guide... But my next issue is which is what's annoyed me most. "MD-97L: part 3" After the massive gunfight in the main lobby, turn around and look for the glass-encased building model. Next to the model is a part, so break the glass and grab it up. This really annoyed me because after several attempts and dying I finally finished the massive gunfight which includes killing the big guy in the bomb suit with the LMG. Right... so turn around and grab the gun peice out of the cabinet? Awesome... if only that was correct... The game cuts to a cutscene which then results in Max being blown off a balcony which then you can't even replay from last checkpoint. So thank you very much for wasting my bloody time. I'm going to find a more informative guide that actually will tell me if I need to grab a gun peice before or after I kill the final guy... seriously... thanks for the guide but also thanks for wasting my time.

    I realize this comment is nine months later, but I don't think your example show any issue with the guide. I've used the guide easily through the game. For the first example, it clearly shows a waterfall. You simply play until you see that waterfall and get the part, there's no sense in why you restarted. The second example is awkward, as well. After the lobby fight you break the glass and pick up the part. Your problem is that you walked 10 feet past the glass case toward the elevator, which the game clearly states is the next plot juncture. Instead, you should have followed the guide and looked for the case, then retrieved your part, not continue to walk past the case and board the elevator. The game makes a good point of having checkpoints after cut-scenes. So, in case you did walk past a part/clue and triggered a cut scene, just pause and exit to the dashboard. Continue from the last save point and you should only be a few minutes behind.

    How did that happen?, because i got every goldengun and clue in the game with the help of this guide, this is the best guide for this game.

    I got all the Golden Guns but when i go to play the story again i still don't have Unlimited Ammo like it say i should... Is there some way that i have to enable it or something??? thanks
  • mike-brown - August 13, 2012 7:18 p.m.

    In story go through and just highlight the grinds for the golden guns you've collected and it should give you unlimited ammo that's what i did and it works now.

    Thanks for the guide, this is exactly what I needed on a weekend with no internet connection, a copy of Max Payne 3, and a phone with a connection to the internet.

    Nice! I was actually looking for a guide like this in the weekend! Also, props for the parody intro, made me laugh a lot specially because at first it seriously sounded like how Max actually talks in game XD
