I'm stuck in the level with a big lift which is broken with the big hole in the middle where the platform used to be.


I see there are ledges that could be climbed directly opposite to the lift level with boxes but I get up there but can't crouch to get on the ledge.

Any takers?

P.S. the ledges are actually opposite the room where I got the 3 boxes.


Still stuck.

Are you still on the level on which you regained consciousness? If so, any headcrabs around?

Excellent. Did MINERVA's hint help you?

Is it about time we made a full walkthru? Perhaps if it went one page at a time with a puzzle per page that wouldn't give away too much. Then when someone has a problem we can just link to the relevant page.
I've got some time off over christmas so I'll have a bash then. (too busy playing L4D at the moment)

Well, I'd love to help out if someone put up some wiki software. Otherwise what about some huge notices on the top of the forum? "COMMON PLACES GETTING STUCK" and "IF EVERYTHING ELSE FAILS, USE GRENADES" and "YOU NEED TO THROW TWO GRENADES".

Ok, I got the platform to drop -- now how do I jump on it? If you answer, could you please give me a straight answer instead of just hints? I know it's fun but it's gotten to the point where we're expected to read the author's mind. Infocom used to have the same problem with some of their titles...

Go to the end of the platform to the open elevator area (You took that elevator down at the beginning of chapter 3).
Make your way over and under the smashed Combine consoles (crouch, crouch, crouch).
Jump on the not so slippery slope. It's made of alien glass, which gives surprising purchase to your HEV boots. Once you're on it, up you go.

Silly me -- I didn't even think to look around the rest of the area. I know the elevator shaft you're referring to... thanks! I'll give that a try tonight. It makes me wish I'd brought my save game file in to the office today. Heh.

I don't remember gunships being this tough on Highway 17. Maybe I'm missing something obvious but the best I can manage to damage it is by swimming in around the boat or ducking around the rocks and firing when it's facing away. I can't hit it enough times before I run out of health packs from being shot by it or damaged by the misc wandering zombies. Could someone please share the strategy they used?

Check the bridge where the gunners were in the first level, where Minerva had her "whoops, it was in the satellite photos" prank go down.

Do you mean the broken bridge where the rocket launcher ammo is or the bridge with the two combine soldiers and the overwatch mounted guns?

You should have a launcher. Up there is the ammo. And naturally that thing is harassing you from the air.

Rockets+Rocketlauncher+gunship= fire launcher at gunship until out of ammo, get more from the crate, repeat until dead?

As I remember even on hard diff it took about eight rockets to down. Wait, did you already shoot down the gunship? Then head for the sea arch.
