Chapter 5: The Escape


Lights Out


Wheatley will guide you through this section, so just listen to him and make careful jumps.


Sabotaging the Turrets


Portal onto the Turret Redemption Line, ride it to the other end, and jump across to the other side. For a quick Achievement/Trophy, pick up the functional turret coming toward you. When you reach the turret firing range, use the gap in the window on the upper left to portal yourself behind the bullet-riddled wall. Wait until you hear good 'ol Nolan North - one of the defective turrets - before walking out from behind the wall and portaling to the passageway behind the turrets.

Follow the path to Wheatley. After he "hacks" the door, portal into the room containing the template and remove it. You can score another easy Achievement/Trophy by standing in the scanner by yourself. To sabotage the turret line, go back the way you came and stand at the back of the platform by the incinerator chute. When a defective turret is launched toward you, grab it, and return it to the template scanner.


Sabotaging the Neurotoxin


While Wheatley ponders the door problem, press the big red button to open it. Before walking through the door, fire a portal at the spot where the laser beam meets the wall. Wheatley will attempt to hack the neurotoxin controls - ignore him and walk to the back of the room, where you have a view of the tank. Fire portals onto the moving platforms on each side, redirecting the laser and slicing through the tubes. Once you've destroyed the tank, return to Wheatley.


Tube Ride

There's nothing for you to do here, just enjoy the ride!


Confronting GLaDOS


When you reach the large void, look for a lit surface in the distance. Portal through it, and into GLaDOS' chamber. From there, you don't have to do much, except press the Stalemate Resolution Button. GLaDOS will try to stop you, but you can reach the button using - you guessed it - portals to avoid her shields.

    Help! im stuck in 1 Chapter, cant do orange portal with right mouse click.. Only blue comes up. Frustrated. I have new imac, maybe mouse settings are not right. Help me to go on, thanks.

    I have a mac to and have had this problem, go into System Preferences and select "mouse." Then click the box next to "Secondary click." Then shoot all the orange portals you want :D

    I was really stumped in "Test Chamber 19". Thanks!!!

    I AM SO FRUSTRATED!!! I am on chapter 6 the fall, I believe the 6th room, right after you drop the box that jumps all over the place. I get in the elevator to go upto the next room, when as soon as the elevator goes up the screen goes black but never comes back on. The system is not frozen I can still hear footsteps (even though it doesnt sound like I can move very far), the sound of glass breaking, and the portal gun firing, yet I can not see anything. No matter where I try to save the game, nor going back and completing the prior level again I get the same black screen that I cant get passed. I've been to a couple other blogs and nobody else seems to have this problem but me. The disk is brand new and no scratches, and this has never nor does happen on any other game.

    Some of these tests are so easy that you'll just think "Why didn't I think of that in the first place?!" But even after a swift kick in your own pants, you feel like a genius. Also, any word if you'll do a little cheat sheet for the trophies/achievements?

    I thank you for the video walk though Mr Wilde, "Mann" Tyler. The two places I got stuck, it helped. I do appreciate the lack of ending also. Let those who want a spoiler for it wait till some one beats it and posts it
  • batman5273 - April 22, 2011 9:56 a.m.

    What a great guide, I tried not to use it, but there were some WTF areas. And then after I watched the video, I could have kicked myself in the ass on how simple it was to solve. Great job, Tyler!

    Thanks!
  • zigs - April 21, 2011 3:30 p.m.

    @VMPSaberwolf it's a trap! But you get an achievement/trophy for it
  • VMPSaberwolf - April 21, 2011 10:28 a.m.

    In Chamber 21, when you are given the option to flee after Wheatley opens a wall for you, there's a part where Glados reveals a test which I bypassed and kept running with Wheatley. Has anyone tried crossing the bridge Glados makes to get to that test? What happens if you do?

    I am making this game take as long as I can... That's very hard! I'm on chapter 6 right now and I am absolutely in love with this game. I haven't even checked out co-op mode yet though! p.s. @Tyler: I've only watched a couple of videos but I'm very impressed! A full walkthrough so soon! I don't care if you haven't finished all of the writing part of it, this is excellent! Not that I want to use a walkthrough on any part of the game that I haven't played yet... unless I'm stuck on it for more than say... three days? :) p.p.s @Tyler: It makes me proud to be a gamesradar fan when the journalists (you) participate in the forums so much. Just saying!
  • Asmodean - April 20, 2011 9:59 p.m.

    Beautiful game, just finished it now... the characters, puzzles, jokes and end 'battle' just beautiful... I have to know how VALVE does it, I mean how the heck did they train me to think the way they wanted; the moon, The Moon, in no other game would have have looked up and thought 'of course the moon'. I'm stunned...
  • Tatts4Life - April 20, 2011 1:43 p.m.

    Proud that I've beaten the game without having to use the walkthrough. There were a few spots I had trouble on. @GamesRadarTylerWilde are there any clues in the videos on how to get some of the harder trophies like the rat man one?
  • quincytheodore - April 20, 2011 6:22 a.m.

    I scrolled straight for comment section while, "Ahh, aghhh.. Spoiler.. don't wanna see.." I wonder how long I'll last before seeing this.. I didn't use in the first one, self-esteem +1, just because my friend didn't finish it. Hopefully, it stays that way.
  • WelcomeGhosts10 - April 20, 2011 2:47 a.m.

    Not going to look at these, because I don't want spoilers, but wanted to comment and say good fucking work Tyler, goodness!
  • GamesRadarTylerWilde - April 20, 2011 12:05 a.m.

    @smashpro1 I don't think so.
  • smashpro1 - April 19, 2011 11:41 p.m.

    Can Cave Johnson own any harder?
  • Tatts4Life - April 19, 2011 10:33 p.m.

    @GamesRadarTylerWilde after my post I was able to figure out what to do. So far I haven't had to ;ook at the videos. I'll probably go back and look to see if I missed any trophies. Loving the game so far.
  • Roofmonkey - April 19, 2011 9:37 p.m.

    Just finished the single player I recommend everybody to play it, it's awesome! Sorry Tyler, didn't need your walkthrough. :P
  • GamesRadarTylerWilde - April 19, 2011 8:44 p.m.

    @Tatts4Life How convenient, we just posted that chapter!
