I'm back to the hallway that took all my weapons in the previous level. I'm now in the base blown apart level (4) ... I've gotten health and ammo...climbed into the elevator... gone up... got stuck, got out... crawled through ductwork, and out of that... up... fight a few head crabs again ... and one zombine.

Then you get to the area where your weapons were taken away. Facing that hallway, to the right... there's a room full of health and ammo.

The near end of the hallway is open. The far end is blocked. I can't see how to move that blockage. I've been back an forth on the map that I can run around a few dozen times. There's a ledge with a railing that is halfway down another hall, but I can't see any way of getting up there.

Hints?

Hint: Use explosive force (for greater justice).

OK. Thanks... I had already thrown 2 or 3 grenades in there... but some more did trick. Not patient enough, I suppose.

So... then I kill the zombine horde ... and then what? I get a message about looking for other vulnerable things. there are a few consoles in the area... and there isn't much else. What am I supposed to blow up next?

Ok. I had. I kept looking up. You know another light or somesuch might help in these situations. One thing Valve does really well (most times) is provide visual clues as to where/what you might be expected to do. The cues can be subtle... but I really was peering into the darkness above for several minutes before I noticed that part of the platform support was broken. It wasn't the first time I had chucked grenades up at the platform, either... just not the right place.

But... now I can finish it. Good job all around...

Shooting the beam also works.

I think I just managed to hit the walkway while trying to shoot zombies, which meant I got really stuck on my second run through ("shouldn't there be a way there?").
