Max Payne 2 Walkthrough

by Christian 'Simon Moon' Riesen <simon [at] gompt [dot] net>


Intro
I played Max Payne 1 and loved it. There i also wrote a walkthrough, included
even a screenshot series for the pretty tough part where they burn down the
restaurant. Too bad that was only in german. Now here is one in english for all
those who have some problems. Mostly it's easy and straight. You might run into
two problems in the whole game. The first one is that you miss a door or a
passage and run around wondering where to go on. The second is when you run
into enemies and don't know where they're shooting you from. This is where this
document comes in handy. It describes to you where you have to go and turn and
where the bad guys are. Mostly the document is precise about numbers, sometimes
it can get fuzzy when there are lots of targets to take out.
To finish this intro, i want to thank my girlfriend for correcting my awful
english and trying to make it understandable to everyone, not only to me.


Walkthrough


Part I: The Darkness Inside

Prologue
Go through the door, go right and through the white door on the left. Go
through the double door to the left. Go through the double door across the
corridor, right of the exit doubledoor. Go close to the body and you get a gun.
Shoot the guy after the cutscene and follow through where that guy came in. Go
through the door on your left side. Turn right and follow to the elevators. Go
into the elevator and use the panel on the right from the inside. Leave through
the side and the second elevator's open doors. Go through the door ahead and
that's it.

Chapter one: Elevator Doors
You stand beside your car, turn right and follow the wall, there's a gap in the
fence you can go through. Follow that path, around the corner to the left and
enter the house through the door to your left. Go  to the left, then straight
until you get to the cubicle. Enter and turn off the tv. Go around the boxes to
the left until you hit a door there (and a cutscene comes).
Now follow that guy. He opens a door. Walk in, towards the red smears on the
floor. After the cutscene the guy wants to shoot you, turn around, kill him,
and from the direction of the smears will come another guy. Take him out, then
go to the smears. Go to the left back corner, and then turn left, go straight
to that rollup door. Go through that small room, to the left are 2 guys talking
that shoot at you when they see you. Go to the left around the shelves to the
door that is on the same wall as the opening you came in. Go through the door,
and then the door on the left. Walk up the stairs, on top stand 2 guys. Go
through this door now. Go through this door and the one on the right hand on
the other wall. Turn left in that room and go to the phone on the desk, use it.
Listen carefully then go through the door on your right. Here, take the door to
your right, the other is locked. Cross the room, next to the windows is a door.
Go in. After the cutscene, kill the two guys, collect the shotgun and the
ingram from them. When you leave the room, there's one enemy in the middle of
the room, the next comes in the door when you reach it. Take them out.
Leave the room, and turn right, go through the now open and unlocked door. On
the right far side are three guys. The one on the very left has a shotgun, kill
him first, then take out the other two. Leave the room through the door back on
the left. Walk over to the other side of that part and see the cutscene with
Mona Sax. Go to the elevator to your left, let it come down, enter, then use
the panel on the left side to ride with it. Leave the elevator, turn right and
enter that room. This is where you entered the building first, turn right to
the hall, where that guy led you through the first time. You will see a guy
with a shotgun.  Shoot at him, run towards him, and let the forklift crash,
kill the driver. Now to your right are 4 enemies, take em out. Go around the
shelves, to the door that is in the same wall as you just came in. There's a
ashooter on the far side. Best is when you stay away, as he will blow up some
tanks and a shelf will fall down. Once that happens, enter that room and go to
the other corner of it, leave through the door there and watch the cutscene.

Chapter two: A Criminal Mastermind
Turn left, go up the stairs (to the right here is some ammo). There are 3 guys
up on the next level, take em out, follow to the right and enter the office. Go
to the desk and use the phone. In the left stand are 2 painkillers. Leave the
office to the left and go up one more floor, in the middle is a guy shooting at
you. Through the door, watch the fight, then listen to Mike. Go up the stairs,
follow to the right and take the open door. Kill the guy to the right first--he
has a shotgun--then kill the other 2. Follow the room to the back. There's a
stairway around the corner, go up and go through the door on the left, behind
it are two guys, and there's one on the left behind the top of the tall
pyramid-shaped structure. Follow the gangway and take the stairway going down.
There are two more guys there. Mike will help you, so just let him take care of
it. Go left and through the door. There are 2 guys, one left, one right (behind
the door). Kill em and follow down. There are 2 guys below, one on the floor,
the other on the stairs. When you reach the last door before the door to the
ground level, there's a guy coming out there, kill him. Go into the door and
through the next 3 doors, to the next big fight. Here you have 3 shooters, one
in the far left back with an ingram, one with a handgun a bit closer and one
right back with a shotgun. Kill them and restock at the shelf behind the guy
with the ingram. Save and prepare for a battle, then leave through the door on
the right side (from the perspective of where you come in).
Here are 4 guys, one on the left on the same level you are now on, and two
downstairs. Kill the one on your level first then the others. Go down and to
the left (from the entrance) and save before you reach the door. Here are a big
load of people. You have 3 problems first, one directly in fron, one left, and
one right behind some crates. First, kill the one directly in front of you,
because of his ingram,then the one on the right, and finally the third one. Go
to the left side, kill whoever you see, then again to the right.  Stay near the
grate-type door under the balcony, and when the guys jump down onto the boxes
in front of you, you can kill them. Eventually they will start shooting at you
from the opposite balcony, so then just storm into the middle and kill whoever
you see.
After the cutscene, in the left back corner, a door opens and 3 guys come out.
Kill them quickly or they will kill you first. Go through that door and down
the small ramp at the end to the right. A cutscene ends this part.

Chapter three: The Depths of My Brain
From the tv, go to the left through the door, ahead is the front door of your
apartment and a note is slipped under it as you watch. Go through the door.
Turn left, and walk straight until you see a lot of boxes stacked on the right.
Run through them, follow the corridor.  There will be a turn to the left(where
there is no other way to turn), and then as you continue walking down the hall,
there will be another hall joining from your left.  Ignore this joining hall,
and continue straight to the stairway and go down them. Through the door, you
are in a morgue. Go to the right to the not fully closed door. Turn around
after the cutscene and go to the phone, it's in the back left corner from where
you came in. Pick up the phone. Then there is a cutscene where you are standing
in front of some cops.  Run towards them.  Next is another cutscene, where you
are sitting in a chair in a police station.  Get up, and shoot the two cops.
Thats it.

Chapter Four: No 'Us' in This
Jump past the window, to avoid the sniper, and go through the rooms on the
right side, again where you can avoid the sniper, to your door and leave. Turn
left and follow the corridor. As you see Mona disappear, turn left, go to the
end and there you will see on the left an open window. Across from this window,
on the RIGHT side is a lady with a shotgun.  Go through the window onto the
ledge.  Walk to the right along the ledge, and then to the opposite end of the
ledge.  Jump across to the ledge on the left from the open window.  Walk to the
end of this ledge, away from the open window, and jump back to the right side,
onto the new ledge, farthest from the open window. Either wait and kill the
guys in the van that comes and THEN go through the window on the right, or
quickly go through the window before they get a chance to kill you. Take the
door to your left, go out the window and then through the next window on the
right. Follow the corridor and you will find 2 enemies on the right and one
behind the corner on the left. Go around that corner to where the lady in the
red nightgown is. Go through the door on the left. Go through the door directly
in front of you and then through the right door. Next go through the window to
the left. Jump from the ledge to the scaffold, and follow it upstairs. When you
come to the window where the sniper was, go in. You can listen to the tape if
you want to, or just go through the door directly in front of you and then
straight again. Turn right and follow that corridor. After the pop machine,
turn right and go through the door on your left. There is one shooter on the
right and two on your left, kill them and go up the stairs. In the middle you
run into two more guys. A grenade will do the trick here. Go up further to the
7th floor. You can't get through here, so go to the left through the bar and
use the elevator. When you come down, step out of the elevator and turn left,
where you will find one enemy to the left, around the corner and two on the
right side. Go right then instantly left (overhead, you will see a red sign
saying "basement"). Go down and follow the corridor until you meet the janitor
wearing orange. Go up the stairs, when you come out of the basement door, there
are two guys in the corridor you can take out before they see you. Now go to
the elevator and use the code on the door as you arrive.
Behind the door, to the right, is a corridor. Three guys that want to kill you
come out from behind boxes . They leave a door open, go in. Directly forward is
nothing, but to the left is a bathroom with painkillers. Here, go right after
you pick up what you want. In this room go through the left door and kill the
guy there. Jump through the window onto the ledge. Follow it, jumping over the
small gap in the middle, until you reach the edge. Here you have to jump down
to the ledge in front of you. As soon as you land, turn around, put in
bullettime and look DOWN to the building. There's an open window (you jumped
through there on your first ledge adventure) from which a guy shoots at you.
Kill him. Follow the ledge on now to the gap. Let Max fall down through that
gap so you land on the ledge below. Turn around to see the window you have to
jump through. Once through the window, inside the room, go left, then right to
the door and see the cutscene.

Chapter Five: A Sign of Her Passage
Well, here we are again, outside Max's apartment. Turn left and go straight
down the corridor, through the door Mona went through, (the door at the end of
the corridor). Behind that door it's a bit tricky. When you come in you will
see two guys, one on left, and one on the stairway leading up.  A third guy
will come from the downleading stairs on the left.  Kill them  all and go
downstairs. Next floor has the sign of Mona's passage. Go one level down and
run from the side against thae wooden beam that blocks the door, so it falls
away and the bum from the lobby comes to your help. Go down deeper, until you
reach the lobby. Go though the doubledoor you see there to your right and a
girl will join your forces. Turn around and go straight, a door to the left (in
the back) will open and three guys will come out. Be aware that the two ppl
will help you now, so don't get caught in crossfire. Go through the door on
your left. Follow the corridor and you get to the gas valve. Use it to turn it
off, then go back up, in the corridor await 3 more guys. Follow the corridor to
the stairs and go up again one flight (a sign with A3 tells you you're on the
right floor). Go straight here. At the end turn left (ex. A303) and go in. Go
straight into the room where you see windows. Here go through the left window
(there's a ledge) and follow the ledge. Before you reach the first corner,
there will be guys shooting up from the ground. They come out of that opening
in the middle of the building to your left when you look down. A grenade can be
wonderously helpful. When you are over the opening in the building, 3 more guys
come out from it. Take em out. On the end of the ledge is a scaffold. Jump on
it, then go up. On top, look to the left side of the house, there's another
ledge, that will allow you to jump to the other scaffold further back. Do it,
but now pay attention. When you jump on it, it will fall down on one side,
creating a ramp; slide down. There are 3 plattforms, use them, to jump from one
to the other before the one you are on falls completely away. On the ground, a
van shows up with 6 guys that shoot at you. Dual Ingram and full bullettime
should solve that.

Chapter Six: A Linear Sequence of Scares
Follow the corridor. It's pretty linear, and you will eventually end up in a
place where there's some sort of elevator cage. Step into it and it will take
you down to the next area. Again here, follow the corridors until you end up in
another cage and go back up. Walk through here until you find the phone booth,
step inside. Use it and go on. To your left you will find a door that is
leaning backwards. Go through this door and you will find yourself behind all
the amusement park stuff. Go left. Ignore the door on the right, it's just a
deadend room, and keep walking up the stairs. At the top, turn around and try
the door there, it's closed, so go straight there forward, deeper into it. At
the end is a door, leave the building through it, then jump to the right onto
the roof and through the open window. Snoop around and follow the noise of the
shower to find the bathroom, it's on the other side of the "apartment". Step
through the bathroom door and see the cutscene.

Chapter Seven: The Million Dollar Question
Leave the elevator, go straight and before you see the deadend, to the left.
There will be two cleaners to your right. Take them out, and then turn back.
Take the door that's on the opposite side of the elevator you came up in.
Inside to the right are two guys. Take them out. You can now go forward right
to the balcony, or you can go through the doors to the right of you to explore,
finding some painkillers and a body. You have to go to the balcony in the end.
Once there, turn left and jump through the fence to the other balcony. Use the
door to your left (you might have to look for the door there, since it's not
exactly clear) to enter.   Go straight, then take the stairs on your left.
Around the corner at the top, is a guy, kill him. Now it gets tricky. To the
right are three guys, and one comes out of a room. All of them stand in front
of you.  So, kill them and use the door on the left. Now there will be a
cutscene.
When you come out, before you go down the stairs again, turn right, head
straight and a cleaner starts shooting while opening the door. Behind him there
are two more guys, and when you go in that direction after killing them, around
the corner to the right are more. Go in the apartment you find there. Go
downstairs. To the left is a piano, and two guys are busy playing it. Kill them
and the third guy that is behind them. Go onto the balcony. Go to the left back
corner and jump on a bench and turn around (facing the apartment again) and
look down and to the right. You see another balcony below with two guys on it. 
Shoot them. You have to jump onto the overhang (the thing attached to the
building that provides shade when people walk under them) and then onto the
balcony. Enter the door there. There are four guys in this room.  First, kill
the two guys are on the far left, then walk forward along the left wall and
look out for the guy waiting for you on the right at the end of the dividing
wall.  Around the corner, behind the wall is another guy. Kill them quickly,
they are pretty well armed. Ahead is the door to the lobby. Go through this
door and straight until you will see three guys on your right and ahead of you
kill a man. You kill them from where you stand and go left down the corridor
beside you (second door to the left from where you came in). Go down the stairs
and through the door to your right. Head straight and then turn right to find a
cleaner. Kill him and enter the appartment that is behind him. Go to the
windows. One is open and has two guys on a window washer lift. Kill them and go
down the lift till you come to the scaffolds. Turn right and jump down the
first opening. Turn around and jump down the next one, close to the building or
you will die. Walk down the ramp going down. Down there you should be at the
right side, looking away from the building. There is an open window, with a guy
waiting inside. You can easily kill him with a grenade. Go in after killing
him. Leave the apartment through the dark door. Outside, to the left, behind
the box is one cleaner.  Another guy is in front behind a pillar and another to
the left, behind the plants. Take them out. Go to the left, there are 2 more
guys. Now comes a neat little fight. There are at least 6 guys. Once you have
killed them, use the elevators.



Part II: A Binary Choice

Prologue
After the cutscene go to your desk. It's in the right hand far corner. Use your
computer and the next cutscene comes in. Now go to the interrogation room, just
turn left and go straight through the door, and wait there until the door
opens. After Winterson is done talking, go in through the door that opens and
talk to the guy you find there. Go back through the door to the office. See the
cutscene, then turn right and go past the boss' office through the big door on
the left, down the stairs. You can listen first to some of the police guys if
you want, some quite weird stuff is happening here. Follow the corridors, buzz
at the doors and just go straight until you hit the next cutscene. Go back to
the guards you passed before and use their phone. Now it gets messy. Go to the
locker and take the guns. Now open the door to your right and kill the three
guys behind it. Go back to the cell Mona was in and go forward to the green
door. Behind it, you find 2 guys that shoot at you plus one is behind the van.
Kill them, and a van will drive in. There are 5 guys in there you can shoot
easily when they open the side door. Go up, in the direction the rear of the
van points.

Chapter one: The Things that I Want
Step instantly to the right with bullettime on and kill the two guys you see.
Turn around and follow the corridor. On the left there's a staircase and two
guys standing at the top, you can try to kill them from where you are or run up
and do it. A good way to get rid of some enemies is to go in the first door you
come to on the stairway and use the switch. Then go up to the top and through
the door. Aim down and kill the two guys below you. Now there's one more around
the corner to your right, and two coming out of the "mouth" on the floor.
Follow the catwalk. Go through the door and use the switch, killing off some
guys below. If you the two in the elevator cage with the giant injector, kill
them with your guns. In the back left part of the room you're in is a door, it
opens and a guy comes in. Kill him and go through the door. Be careful, theres
a guy throwing grenades sometimes. Turn right and run in bullettime into the
enemies, about five on the same floor as you, and three below you. One of the
three comes up the stairs. The other two are to your left between the walls
when you walk down the stairs. On the ground level turn right and walk between
the walls, until you go through the door.
After the cutscene, shoot the three enemies that aren't shot by Mona and go
into the opening garage in the corner, where two more cleaners await you.
Follow the corridor, up the stairs. The room after the one where you come up
has another cleaner in it. You can see now another part of the "street"
scenario. Here are four more cleaners. Kill them then go into the left garage
on your left side, there's an opening in the wall, go in. Around the corner are
more cleaners. Mona takes care of a few, but you have to rush through there and
kill a few yourself. When you get to the green door at the right wall, be
careful, a guy storms out with a pumpgun, that's instant death if you are a bit
low on health. Go through the door, and walk towards the exit, and you're done.

Chapter two: In the Middle of Something
Go to the right, up the stairs, and then to the left. Behind the glass doors
you see is a set of stairs.  On those stairs are the two guys from the cutscene
Kill them through the glass door. Go up the stairs. There turn to the left
through the double doors. You're in the lobby.  In front on the left is the
escalators.  Go up and kill the two guys that come in on your left. Go through
the door behind them. Head into the corner on the left side, shoot the red
boxes and the elevator opens up. Jump in and down into the elevator.  Leave the
elevator and turn right, through the glass door. Turn again right and go
through the door and you are outside. Outside are give enemies. One is on the
roof to your right. Two are behind the small building to your left, and two are
further to the right, around the corner of the building on your right. Kill the
guy on top, run left and kill the last four. Turn right and go straight, where
the two guys were guarding the other door (right from where you came in) and go
through there. To your right is the lobby where you were before, go straight
past that. Turn left and use the door on the other side of the room. Here there
are two guys to your left and further back are two more. Kill them and go to
the right corridor and kill the enemies there (about three). When you reach the
end of this corridor, turn left (your only option) and go down the hall until
you reach the door. Go through the door and turn left.  You will see a small
door. Go through it and up the stairs into the room on the next floor. Turn
right and go into the next stairwell and up to the next floor. At the end of
the stairs there's one enemy to your right.  Kill him and jump across the gap
through the doorframe where the enemy was standing. Head left and follow the
corridor. You will meet three guys in that corridor you have to kill. Go
through the door on your right, through the room and turn left. Behind the
movable cubicle-style wall is an enemy and right around the corner are three
more. After the shootout, head straight through the single white door in front
of you (straight after going around the corner). Turn to the right and go
through the hole in the wall. Now to the right is a door.  Go through it. Here
comes a massive shootout. Two to the left, two in a small corridor to your
right and one guy straight ahead. More come in as you shoot at others, so it
gets pretty messy. After that, jump from the door over the hole to your left,
go though the door frame and through the glass door to your left. Watch the
cutscene. Pack up what you can get here.  There are plenty of weapons and some
painkillers. Looking from where you entered the room, there is a door on the
left that leads upstairs. Go through it, and up the stairs to collect the
sniper rifle on the far right side of the room you enter. Then go through the
double door on the left. To the left and below you are three guys that shoot up
at you; take them out. Jump to the other catwalk and go through the door. Go
into the elevator to your right and make sure you don't fall down the hole.
Jump on to the crates so you reach the roof of the elevtor and go through the
open elevator door you see there. Turn left and go through the door. On the
other side, there are three black-masked guys that come at you.  Kill them and
don't get too close to them, stay at the straight part of the catwalk in front
of the door where you came in and see the rest of the catwalk break down. Jump
to the left onto that triangle platform.  Walk to the other side of the
platform and jump onto the portion of the catwalk that remains in front of the
OTHER door. Walk through the door and turn right.  Use the door in the left
wall to go uupstairs. You see the cleaners' uniforms on the floor.  Go around
the moveable walls and through the door in the same wall you came in to go one
more level up. Before you go around the corner on the stairs, look around it
with the mouse, there's a guy standing right at the end of the stairs by the
door.  Take him out and go through the door. Turn left and go through the
double doors. When you near the other door in this room, there will be enemies
that come out from there and shoot at you. When you go through the door, there
are four shooters, all behind tables and other obstacles. Also there's an
explosive crate to your right when you come in, so be careful, you can kill
yourself easily this way. After taking the guys out, go through the door on the
other side, turn left and go through the door you see there.

Chapter Three: Blowing Up
Turn to the left and go through the passage. Go right, then left. Follow the
corridor until the floor breaks away, go in the door to your right.  Ignore the
guy there, waiting until the wall to your left has exploded and then go through
the hole in it. Shoot the two crates on the table in the left far corner, the
wall will blow up and you can go through. Jump along the ledges and beams,
until you reach the door you see open to your left. Follow the corridor until
you get to a gap in it, fall down, turn around, and follow the corridor you are
now in. Fall down the next gap to the lower level.  Turn right and shoot the
two guys standing there, one of which is behind a pillar. Go through the white
door. Go straight, turn right, and kill the guy standing there with an ingram.
Wait until something like a big chunk of concrete falls down on the table, then
you can jump up on it and over the table to go straight. Turn right then left
again. Go through the door and shoot the three guys there. There's a hole in
the floor to your right.  One guy  you have to take out stands down there. 
Once you've done this, let yourself fall down into the hole. Instantly you get
attacked by three more guys, fanned out pretty well to your right. Kill them
and look for another hole you have to fall down.  There are no enemies in here.
Leave through the double doors. Turn right and follow the corridor. There's a
wall of fire in front of you.  Dodge to the left through the hole in the wall.
Run straight through the middle of the room and you will see the cutscene.

Chapter four: Routing Her Synapses
You are Mona now, cool. Aim with your rifle up to the guy standing there. Kill
him and run straight to the middle of this room and to the left. There's a
passage and stairs going up. Above is a guy shooting, so get him (close-range
weapons will do here now). Go through the first door you can use. When you get
closer to the "open" part, there's a guy one level up shooting at you. Pass the
platform and go one level up here. You might encounter the guy from before if
you didn't kill him then. When you step out on the small platform after being a
level up, you see a guy on the other side you can take out, this helps when you
are further up.  Go up and you will run into three more enemies.  Take them out
and go up further. When you step on the platform on top, there's a guy with an
ingram shooting at you.  Kill him and go to the yellow elevator and use it. 
Get onto the platform and go right--you can only use the right door.  There are
three more shooters in front of you.  Run with bullettime at them and towards
the passage on your right.  There is another guy in this passage.  Take all of
them out and go through the passage.  In the back right part of the room here
is a ramp construction.  Get onto it and turn left to find more enemies.  There
are in six guys altogether.  One is shooting through the grate above you when
you come.  Another is in the far back corner and the other four are in the far
back on the second level.  So make haste here.  Go in the far back part, paying
attention you don't fall down, and then go up the stairs from the second level
to third.  Go through the hole in the wall to your right and around the wooden
wall.
Now there's a major shootout.  First there are three guys.  One comes at you
from the left, one from the right, and one around the corner to the left.  Then
come in three more guys in black from where you entered, three more from the
far left corner and then a last wave of guys in black.  It's pretty tough so be
prepared.  Once it's all over, go to the other side of the room and through the
door there.  Walk around the plastic wall to the other side with the door. 
Listen to Max, then walk through the door.  Kill the three guys to your left,
walk forward and turn right to see the other three enemies. They hide a bit
though, so dont expect to see them right away.  Go through the wall part over
the metal bridge to the other side of this room.  There's an unfinished part to
your right where you can jump down to finish this chapter.

Chapter five: Out of the Window
Restock in this room, there's some ammo laying around. Pay attention because
you will soon get company. The best thing to do is to leave the room and wait
at the door until the guys jump down, then kill them. Go to the right side,
where you will see outside and a guy to the left shooting at you.  It's best to
ignore him now and listen to Max. Then go inside further to the back left to a
door where you will see an enemy coming in. Kill him, save, and go through the
door behind which is another guy on the floor and three above you on the
construction. Kill them and then go through the door on the other side of the
room. Follow the rooms to the last door, and then you get a cutscne where you
see Max fall.
Turn right and shoot the guy that comes through the door. Walk through the door
and continue through the area until you can't go further and shoot the guys
that come from the building and want to kill Max. The sniper rifle works well
here. When Max runs back, give him cover. Shoot them as fast as you can. At one
point Max can't get one pair of guys, so you have to backtrack to help him.
Remember where you could look down on the yard before? That's where you need to
go (about the beginning of the level). Shortly before you get to the the
position where you will cover Max from above, in the same room though, there
are two enemies.  You will find them after you get though the door on the right
side, behind the wall, which is across from the opening to your left. Next, the
guys you have to kill to cover Max are in the corner of the building, behind it
slightly, so its not too hard to hit them.  Max will get pinned down, and you
need to do more running. Go to where you started in the level.  There are two
guys shooting at you.  Kill them and go through the door behind them which will
open now. Inside on the left are three enemies. Go through the door on the
left, and you will meet another two enemies. Before you step out on the
scaffold, there's one guy shooting from the above right when you come out, so
get him or he will kill you right away. Go up the scaffold and into the
building again. Go through the rooms to the hole you see there and jump down to
get the cutscene.

Chapter six: The Genius of the Hole
Kill the guy directly in front. Get the sniper rifle and kill the guys below
you and to the left (Max is to your right). Give him cover until you say you're
going through the building to get into another position. Run back in and to the
right. Stay at the very back of the wall, and you will soon see two guys
standing there waiting for you around the corner to the right. There's a door
with two more enemies behind it.  They might come through, but either way you
have to go through that door.  Once through, turn right. Walk to the door you
see and pass through. Go straight to the holes in the right wall that lead you
to the scaffold. Stand on the scaffold platform that sticks out the most and
aim down to the right.  Kill the guy there and wait for the other four that
will come out very soon. Wait here until Max disappears then go back a bit.
Turn around again and you will see more commandos above you.  Kill them.  Use
the stairs coming down, to go up and into the building again. Stay on the right
until you see a door where a guard comes out. Go in, turn left and kill the
guard that wants to come up. Jump down there and turn around quickly to kill
the guy that will try to shoot you in the back.  Go in the open doorframe where
the shooter was standing.  Turn left and go over the bridge, and kill the guy
that attacks you there. When you enter the room on the other side, there are
two guys going to the left that want to kill you and two around the corner to
the right (behind the pillar). Get them. Go to the right side, around the
corner. Two more commandos come at you here. Walk over the scaffold and go
down. When you get around the corner to the left, there are three more enemies.
Kill them and then go to the yellow scaffold and down the ramp there. Here are
two guys to your right and two on the scaffold above and to the left. Take all
of them out and go down, best with a jump to the left, because there are two
more enemies down below the stairs. When you reach the bottom two more
commandos come into the building. Get the sniper rifles here and step out. On
the scaffold above you and to the right are two guys.  Kill them and then walk
around to the left in the pit. Behind that small building are two commandos (on
the left side), kill them then go to the red construction elevator you see in
the left corner.  Step into the cage and use the controls.


Part III: Waking Up from the American Dream

Prologue
Leave the room and follow mona around the corner and follow the corridor until
you walk into Mona showering. Now leave the cell and turn left, follow the
corridor and go up the stairs. At the top head right to your office, where you
see Mona and the detective aiming at each other. When they aim at you, just
wait till it gets dark.

Chapter one: Too Stubborn to Die
There is no gun in here, so just run through the door and then through the red
door to the left. You're being chased.  Go up the stairs to the second floor
(first door that opens). Turn left, then again left and follow the corridor. Go
into the second door to the left and, once in the room, through the right door.
Here use the door on the left side, that says "recovery" and then in the next
room use the one on the left. Hide behind the cubicle walls in the black area
and wait. To your right when you look back at the door you came in, comes a
security guard. Your pursuers kill him and he drops a gun. Get it, and kill the
guys who were chasing you. Go through the door the guard came in through and
turn right.  Follow the corridor and take the first door to the left.  Collect
the stuff on the tables, then go through the door in the right wall. Here three
enemies are waiting. Kill them and go through the door on the right side. Turn
left, and again left at the end of the corridor.  Behind the first door on the
right are two commandos. You can follow the corridor and you run into two guys
ahead.  Before you reach them you will see a glass-enclosed office with another
guy inside.  Kill them all and use the white door at the end of the corridor.
Right behind it, a bit covered, are two commandos. Go through the door on the
left, and there is one more. Go through the door there and through the door in
the next room. Leave this room through the door on the right (with the exit
sign). Now you encounter six guys. They are all in the corners of the
staircase, so run in bullettime down and kill them fast. At the bottom leave
through the double door exit. To your right are four commandos.  Kill them, but
do not shoot the guy in front of you, he's a cop. When you go further there's a
guy storming out of an office to your left. Kill them then walk towards the
ramp.

Chapter two: On a Crash Course
Go straight and kill the four guys there before they have a chance to react.
Through the door in the back right, come three more enemies; kill them. In the
middle part (from the lobby) are three guys on the floor and one up on the
balcony. When you are up on the second level in the middle, you will get some
company from the right side through a door. When you go through there, there
are four more guys coming straight at you. On the far left side here (upper
level of the lobby) is some ammo and the striker (super shotgun). Go through
the opening in the right wall and up the stairs. At the top of the stairs is a
guy with an ingram.  Take him out and go through the wooden door at the end.
Here is the balcony.  Go to the left through the open door and kill the goons
behind the opening, then proceed through the door at the right wall. Stock up
and go into the back of the room, where there are two goons behind the crates.
When you kill them, the wall where those explosives are explodes, so go back
around the crates and shoot the guys you see there. There's one in front, one
in the back on the gangway and one up and to the right. Go up on the gangway,
and kill the shooter below you. Go to the other side and use the stairs there
to go down. There is another guy that comes at you as you are going down the
stairs. At the bottom, go to the back left corner.  Go down there and turn
right.  Go to the back part, and kill the two goons. In the right wall a door
opens now, kill the three guys fast. Go down and you run into another goon. Go
down until you hit the door. Enter and kill the three guys ahead. There are
explosive boxes behind them that work well for this. Collect what's there and
go to the right, leaving this room through the brown door. Go up the stairs and
kill the guy there. Then kill the two on the next level and the one waiting on
the stairs to the left. Go up here again. Kill the two that are directly
forward from the stairs, then proceed to the corridor at the back right. Go
into the first door to the right and kill the guys to the left inside. Use the
microphone on the desk behind the goons.

Chapter three: A Mob-War
After the car crashes, get through the door in the back of the store. Turn
right and go up the small stairway. See the green door to your left, don't go
up but back away, and wait until they open it from the outside. Kill the two
guards, then go outside. Turn left and kill the two guys that come your way
from above.  Back into the house and up the staircase. Forget this level, turn
right and go one more flight up. Turn right towards the wall and walk through
the cracked wall that has the canister in front of it, and go through the door
there. Turn to the right and go through the door and kill the cleaner there. Go
back through the hole in the wall, and use the white door on the left here. Go
on to the balcony and look down, to hear Max talk about getting down. So get
down and go from the balcony into the house (behind you is the entrance).
Before you go down, go up.  There are four guys that will shoot you in the back
later if you don't get rid of them now. Now go down. Go around to where the
stairs go down further and kill the two guys. Turn left, go into the apartment
and kill the guy that is in the bathroom to your right. From the bathroom go
left and through the green door (still on the same level). You see some boards
outside that lead to the other building.  Go over to them. Go through the door,
head left into the corridor. You can go down but there's nothing of interest. 
Go up.  Now your route goes through the door right when you come up the stairs,
but you can go one level up and kill two guys gawking at the tv and find some
striker ammo in their bathroom. Aynways, go through the door at the top of the
stairs.  Go right, turn left and kill the two guys you see.  Use the boards
outside to walk to the other building and enter through the bathroom. Go
straight and then through the door to the left.
After the cutscene, follow the goons. They go down to the street and outside.
Turn left and follow them. Before the corner, there are a few to the right and
a few to the left that attack you.  Some jump over the wall at the end of the
road, so be careful. Proceed to the left, until a guy in a white jacket runs
towards the other guys with you. Kill them now. The other guy recognizes you.
Go on down the street to the first green door on the side. You easily see that
it's just a door in the wall, not to a house. Walk through until you hear the
car, then go into a corner and wait for the commandos to come. Kill them (two
will survive probably).  Go around the van and the next chapter starts.

Chapter four: Dearest of All My Friends
Now you get attacked by a load of people.  First kill the four guys in the
house, then go outside to find more. Now the next wave comes, one is on the
wall and four more crawl over.  You will hear a crash and about eight more cops
come in. Kill them then follow Vinnie. He goes to the back door, and two more
cops are in the room with the crates, but can't get trhough.  Vinnie wants to
go to the elevator, so follow him, and watch your back.  Two guys will come
through the door and two more through the window.  At the elevator, there are
even more guys.  They come through the door to the right while you wait for the
elevator to go up. Once up, there are more guys coming up the stairs (about
two).  Go into the apartment and look around. Go downstairs and kill the guys
there (about four or five) that stand there. Go back up and Vinnie will talk to
you (a pretty neat "collection").  Go to the balcony where you will hear
voices.  You will see a part of the balcony being ripped away. There are three
more guys waiting down there, one by the fence, one left in the hut-type thing,
and one on the floor lower than the others. Vinnie jumps down and a van with
four more cleaners bursts in, but it's easy to take them out from the balcony. 
Follow Vinnie around.  When he goes to the other door and starts to work on it,
there are three guys around the van and the container to your right.  When
Vinnie gets the door open, three more enemies come over the wall behind the
van.  Go through the door with Vinnie and up the ramp.  Use the control for the
car lift there.  While Vinnie gets lifted, a van full of cleaners crashes in.
Walk down the lift over the car and shoot at the back of the van when the doors
open, giving the four guys there no chance to shoot back.  Go up again and use
the lift if Vinnie is not up yet. Follow him down the hall and down the stairs
into the garage.  Turn around and guard the door you and Vinnie came in (the
double door).  At least four commandos are coming to give you a hard time.

Chapter five: A Losing Game
You are Mona again.  Go in and down the stairs to your left.  Half-way down,
jump into that open booth.  Go forward and turn right.  Walk up the ramp and go
straight until the wall in front drops.  Wait here and shoot at some of the
barrels below, the red ones.  Wait until they have exploded.  There are quite a
few and it takes a while.  Once they're all exploded, jump down. On the left
side there is now a hole in the wall.  Jump through it.  Go to the back right
corner, and wait until the barrels explode and a big pillar falls down.  You
will see it going diagonally from lower right to your upper left. Go to the
start of it (lower right), climb up on it, jump onto the booth to your right,
and behind the fire on your right side jump down again.  Wait for the wall to
blow up in front of you and the cardboard figure to appear, then walk through
there and through the wall to your right, the red room. In there go through the
gap in the left wall.  Run through that "between the walls" compartment and
straight until you hit the wall. To your left a big barrel-type thing tries to
kill you, so wait until it stops.  Then go to the right (from the view of where
you entered).  Follow the wall closely and you will see painkillers and a fire
alarm to the left.  Use the fire alarm twice and a sprinkler will start and
extinguish some flames. Follow through the room and go in the door to your
left. In here use the next door to the left again. Wait until the crates fall,
then go to the next room and use the switch on the left wall.  Go back to the
room with the fire alarm and you will see that the electricity sparks that were
to your left are gone. Go through there and up the stairs. Follow the corridor
around the fire. Go around the debree and up the stairs into Mona's hideout.

Chapter six: There Are No Happy Endings
It's not very complicated here, just walk into the interrogation room after the
chief is on the operation table, then follow yourself.  The end part is a bit
fuzzy, but all you need to do is get to the left back corner.

Chapter seven: Love Hurts
After falling down, shoot onto the roof, and then storm forward to kill the
three guys in front.  Mona takes out a few, but she can't get the ones on the
roof in the lower back part.  That's your job.  After that, the main door in
the middle opens, one guy comes out and another stands in the middle on the
stairs. Kill them and go in. Try to get through the door there, and the entry
door will close on you.  Now shoot at the dynamite packs by the pillars.  They
will explode and the ceiling will fall down. You are secure when you stand
right at the door where you came in.  Don't stand in the front part or you will
die.  Now the door that was closed up the stairs will open and a guy starts to
shoot at you.  Kill him, go in and kill the guy next to the piano.  Leave
through the door on the right, and kill the two guys there on the same level as
you.  You will meet another guy when you walk to the pond on the second level
balcony.  Mona appears.  On the roof is another person you have to kill.  Now
wait for the cutscene.  The windows open.  Kill the guy in the leftmost window
and the one in the corridor, when you enter that window to the left. Use the
door on the right side (next to that big double door).  Go through the TV room
and to the left.  Here you meet a few enemies.  Two are on the floor, one
stands on the shelf.  Another one is on the balcony.  Go to the other side of
the room, turn around and you see the door above.  Some more guys come through
there.  Kill them and meet Mona again.  Then leave through the door to the
right, killing the two guys you meet there. Go straight and kill the three
enemies that come at you.  Go straight through the door.  Look to the left for
a green canister.  Shoot it until it blows up and back out again.  Wait until
the explosion is over and go in again. There are two guys waiting, one to the
left one and one on the right, and another one on the balcony, when you come in
to the left on top. After that, there are three more guys on the other side of
the room through the door, and one on the balcony to the right. Kill them all,
and go to the other side of the room. Around the corner where the stairs lead
to the left is a shooter.  Upstairs four more are waiting. Go up, turn left and
follow the corridor.  Take the last door on the right. Plunder the cupboards,
then look at the screen in the corner of the security desk.  Leave the room
through the other door. Take the door to your left and shoot the two guys that
are camping beside the door.  Then leave through the door they opened.  There
are two guys down in the garden.  When you step through the door, they start
shooting at you right away.  Kill them and go down the stairs.  Turn around to
take out the guy shooting at you.  Another guy comes downstairs with molotov
cocktails after you've killed the shooter.  Go up the stairs again, and through
the door on the opposite side of where you came from to the fresh air.  Inside,
shoot the guy opposite.  Now you will hear mona.  Turn left and kill the
commando there. Go through the door he came from.  Go further, where you see
mona on the other side again, then go through the door on the left.  Turn
right, and take the door at the end, straight.  There are two guys on the
balcony in front of you.  Kill them and then look down.  You will see one guy
on the right and another to the left sitting down there.  Go to the edge of the
balcony and wait for another cutscene.

Chapter eight: That Old Familiar Feeling
Go through the door, and kill the guy with the Mp5 on the left side.  Take his
gun and go left.  There is a door to your left with another shooter waiting
behind it.  Kill him but follow the corridor to the right and kill the two guys
at the end of the corridor.  He sets off the bombs, so run back to where you
started, the panic room broke down.  Jump in, turn to the right and use the red
door switch.  After the explosion use it again and go out.  Go around the right
corner, through the now exploded wall and jump down to kill the guy there.  Go
through the door quickly and turn left to kill the two guys there.  Turn right
and leave the room.  Go to the stairs, up and wait until the first edge
explodes.  Then jump over the gap and go to the door and through.  When you
reach the corner, two more guys attack you.  Kill them, go through the door and
up the stairs.  Now here are some more guys and you reach the unbreakable glass
wall.  Wait until they fall back and the wall slides away.  Then go through the
door, jump in bullettime and kill the two goons that are waiting for you.  Call
the elevator in the left wall and step in.  When you reach the top, kill the
suit in front and the one on the left.  Now stay near the right wall until you
reach the end of the room and go through the door. Shoot up at Vlad so he
flees.  Call the wheelchair lift with the button to your left.  Vlad tries to
stop you, if he presses the button, press it again.  Don't shoot at him behind
the cupboard, since it doesnt help.  Once the lift shows up, step on it, and go
up.  Vlad tries to shoot at you.  Shoot back.  Two more enemies come out to be
killed.  When you reach the top, Vlad is fleeing through the door upstairs.  Go
after him.

After the cutscene comes the "endboss" part.  The construction he sits in is
hanging on those brownish-looking bolts.  Shoot them and they fall out pretty
quickly.  His platform lands in the middle.  Now shoot the bolts you see up
there in the middle construction. It looks like a down-pointing arrow. These
bolts are a bit differnt they take more hits before they fall out. While you
are busy with the bolts, he throws bombs down. Be careful, they are deadly. 
After the middle part falls down, he has to come out of his secure middle part.
 Now you can see him directly, so shoot at him. Be careful, he throws molotovs.
 The best strategy is to wait until you can see him nearly fully, then go in
bullettime, and use something like the M18 and pump bullets into him, as many
as you can.  Aim at his chest and head.  He will go down in no time, before you
empty your full clip on him.

Congratulatons, you did it! You solved Max Payne 2!
