If you have found a way that you can do a mission using skills of higher ranks that's great, however, I will not be putting them in my guide so please do not e-mail me with them as I will no longer respond to them. *************** Intro ********************* Welcome to the World Of Darkness(R). Well fledgling, not able to keep up with the Elders? Or simply trying to save your unlife from final death? Well, whatever your reason, you've come to the right place. Whether Malkavian (my favorite) or Gangrel, Nosferatu or Toreador (another favorite of mine), I'll help you on your way to becoming top Vampire in L.A. In this guide I will give a general walk-through of most of the missions in Bloodlines. However, note that because of the way this game was built I am really only going to give one possible solution. Most of my solutions will be stealth and using disciplines or swords. Unless you like to carry a lot of blood-packs, plenty of ammo, and have a really high strength, then brute force is not suggested. Leave that to the Brujah and the Gangrel, though I won't be excluding those from this walk-through. Now I'm not hear to hold your hand, this is the World of Darkness(R), I'm just hear to keep you from losing what little bit of your unlife you've got left. So sharpen your fangs and open you vampire eyes... Also note, I will try to keep spoilers to a minimum, but seeing as how this is a walkthrough, that's not going to be entirely possible. If you don't want any spoilers, then why are you using a guide? Figure it out for yourself. Otherwise please, continue. I also will not be including glitches, cheats, or anything of the like, as I do not use them. If you are looking for cheats, look elsewhere. If you find an error, in my guide or would like to add something (i.e. I say that you can't do something and you did it.) please e-mail me and tell me. I'll add it, if I see fit to, and give you the proper credit. Note: I will include glitches that hinder gameplay, such as the major glitch in Ming Xiao's temple at the end of the game. I will not include glitches that give you more XP then you're supposed to get, or a glitch that will give you a lot of money or anything like that. ************************************************ ******************* Feats ********************** ************************************************ I wasn't going to add this section as I didn't think any of these needed explanation, but after seeing what some people said about them I though I should go on and add it. To find out what attributes and skills you need to raise in order to raise a feat just hover the cursor over the desired feat. Unarmed - This feat determines how much damage you do with just your bare fists and also how easily you can feed on the unwilling. If you like to feed during combat a lot, raise this feat. Melee - This feat determines how likely you are to hit and how much damage you are going to do with melee weapons. These include tire irons, baseball bats, knifes, severed arms, and the Katana. Raise this feat if you like to get up close during battle. Ranged - This feat determines how much damage you can do with all types of guns. If you like keeping your distance, or blasting someone in the face with a shotgun, raise this feat. Defense - This feat determines how difficult it is for someone to hit you. It's generally good for any type of player to raise this a little. Lockpicking - This feat determines what types of locks you are able to pick. The higher this feat the less use you have for keys. Sneaking - This feat determines how easily you can go undetected. From what I've read of other people this feat seems to go unused. The higher this feat the closer you can get to someone without them seeing you. Very useful for those who like avoiding large scale fights and for executing stealth kills. Hacking - This feat is a lot like the Lockpicking skill except that it pertains to computers. Inspection - You know those little dots that sometimes hover above items? Well the higher this feat is, the more of those that you see. This feat shows you where items are with you actually having to look for them. Useful if you like finding every detail or aren't using a guide for every little detail. Research - This feat is used in order for you to use tomes to raise other skills Each tome has a certain level that your research feat must match or surpass in order to use the tome and gain it's benefits. Haggle - This feat determines how well you can buy and sell. The higher this feat the less you pay for items and the more you sell them for. Intimidate - This feat is used to 'unlock' different dialog options. Persuasion - Same a intimidate. Seduction - Same a intimidate. Seduction is a very good way to be able to feed on people without violating that masquerade. Soak Bashing, Lethal and Aggravated - Every time you get hit, or would otherwise take damage, your soak skill (depending on what type of damage you're about to take) will reduce the damage by that much. Higher soak scores equal less damage that you take. ************************************************ ***************** Story Missions *************** ************************************************ ************************************************ *************** Santa Monica ******************* ************************************************ ********* Mission 1: Get The Explosives ********* 1. After you complete the training mission (you don't need a guide for that do you!? If so, check somewhere else childe!) you'll be brought to you fabulous apartment in Santa Monica. Run over and check the two pieces of paper on your desk, get the money out of the first door and read your e-mail, and grab the three blood packs in your fridge. I'll wait. After you're all done there, head out of your apartment (don't forget to turn off your radio and TV, don't want to waste electricity do you?). After you walk a little ways out of the alley, you get a short cut-scene with a guy crawling into his apartment. Follow him inside. His name is Mercurio, he was supposed to get some explosives for you but screwed up. Talk to him and he'll tell you that you need to go down to the beach. Once you get down to the beach (follow the signs from the parking garage) a woman will direct you to where you need to go. Once you get to the top of the stairs, you'll notice a single guard guarding a small house. Get past him, shoot him, persuade him, drain him, whatever, and get into the house. Once inside wonder around until you find a guy or starts talking to you as soon as you enter the room. Start talking to him and he'll end up trying to kill you. (I haven't found a way around a good old fashioned slaughter so.. go for it, it's not that tough). Grab the explosives behind him and make it out with your head still attached. If you want to retrieve Mercurio's money, it's in the grate beside the bunk-bed and the washing machine. If you want a side quest, talk to the guy on the beach without a shirt. This will open up the "Thin-Blood" quest, read below for a walkthrough. Find your way back to Mercurio (he's still in the same place). He'll ask you not to tell that he screwed up. If you tell he'll be killed, if you don't he'll set you up with some weapons and ammo later, your choice. ************* Mission 2: Ocean House ************* 2. After you get the Astrolite, you'll need to head over to club Asylum. When you get in Jeanette will start talking to you. Finish with her and then talk to the bar-tender. Talk to the guy standing beside the bar if you want another side quest. This will open the "Asian Vampire" quest, see below. When you get to the second floor via the elevator, you'll hear a muffled argument. Enter the room to find Therese. She will offer to end her feud with Tung (the guy you need to speak with) if you will go to a hunted house a get something to (a pendent) so someone can remove the spirit. She'll give you a key that will open a door in the sewer. So... jump on down a sewer grate and find the door. Take a right when you get outside and take that sewer entrance down. Once inside the sewer follow it to the left all the way to the end. Once you submerge in front of a large building, go to your left to find a smaller building. Inside this building is the key for the Ocean House. Walk to the front of the house. Zap! Did it get you? Well all you have to worry about in here is stuff like that. Lamps exploding and vases being thrown at you. No one to fight. Try not to get too scared fledgling. First off walk to the coffee table, oh, and avoid the chandelier, and read the newspaper article. Then walk up the stairs, you'll fall down. *GLITCH NOTE: If you jump and end up not falling down through the stairs, it is possible to get stuck in the basement later. Do this and you'll just have to reload. Sorry, it's what you get for cheating.* Anyway walk down the central corridor and you'll see a girl running away. Follow her and go into the room at the end of the hall. Break the weak wall to your right and crouch to enter the next room. Read the paper and the door will open. If you can't figure it out from the paper, you now need to go to the laundry room. Take a right out of the room back down the corridor and take a left at the intersection. You'll soon find a doorway into the laundry room. Walk to your left and one of them will open. Look inside. Instead of a head you'll find a key I know, I was hoping for a head too but oh well. Now you need to go to the Boiler Room... go figure. You'll see the girl run in front of the door opposite the one you entered. Follow her (go left) and use the key to open the door. If you look between the pipes on your right when you first enter you'll see the killer with a bat coming towards you. Run around them and he'll disappear. Go to the back of the room and turn on the power. Duck on your way back out to avoid the steam. After that wonder around until you find the elevator, and take it up to the next floor. When you get to the top, go to the girl across the room and look at the paper she's trying to show you. Walk down the hall past the elevator and the first door on your left will open. Walk in and look at the child's picture. Notice anything wrong?! Leave this room and go to the next one. When you walk into the room the lights will go out. Get the key that's in the night- stand and leave the room. Go back to where the elevator you came up in is. Once your a little past the elevator you should see the girl again pointing to the door. Go in the room and break the plywood on the floor and jump down. Read the newspaper you find and then use the lift to go down into the kitchen. Pick up the diary and get back into the lift. Wait until all hell breaks loose in the kitchen, it will break open the door in front of you. Run into the next room. Get up into the vent and crawl until it empties into an elevator shaft. Climb into the recess before you're crushed by the (surprise, surprise!) elevator. Use the ladder to climb to the top and walk on the ledge to enter the top floor. Go to your left and follow the girl again. Use the last door that you can get to and go in the room. At the end of the room are some fallen beams, use them to get to the next floor. Walk across the room and exit from the far door. Run over the hole in the floor and then duck to avoid more steam. Go to the end of the hall and enter room 310. Rest here if you need to, before picking up the pendent. Pick it up and then fall into the room below. Leave the room toward your left and read the paper in the recess (optional). Jump back into the elevator shaft climb back up to the opening and then leave the house. Make it back to club Asylum (the sewers fledgling) and go up to the second story and speak with Jeanette. If you give her the pendent like she asks, you'll fail the mission (she throws it in the ocean).If you've got the hots for her, give it to her, otherwise wait and give it to Therese. The next mission is optional. If you want some experience do it, otherwise don't (plus there's $250 in it for you if you don't mind a humanity loss). *********** Mission 2.5: Gallery Noir ************ Go to the far side of Main St. Opposite your haven and walk up to the fat security guard. Find a way past him, either seduce him if you're female, or use Dementation if you're a Malkavian, otherwise go into the parking garage, and use blood buff to remove the last bar to your left. Then pick the lock to the door. If you want to take the charity money and then equip your knife. If you don't slash the paintings in order they'll drain your blood. The order is, "Caine Slays Able," "Caine Cursed by God," "Caine Meets Lilith," and "Caine Spurns Lilith." And now the first boss fight. Kill the Blood Guardian and then go back to the Asylum. Therese will now yell at you for giving Jeanette the pendent (if you did) or for destroying her art (if you didn't). In any case she'll send you over to the diner to meet with Jeanette. ************* Mission 2.75: The Diner ************ Well it becomes quickly obvious that Jeanette is not in the diner, but there are four very shady looking individuals in here. Umm, wait.. you've been set up. Walk over to the far side of the diner and they'll start shooting at you. Dispose of them and then answer the phone in the corner. It will be either Jeanette or Therese depending on some variables. Anyway go back to the Asylum. ********* Mission 2.9: The Spawn of Janus ********* When you get back to the Asylum second floor, Jeanette and Therese will be arguing. Listen to either side of their story and then decide who you want to live. After this one of them will tell you where Tung is hiding out. It happens to be in the oil tank of the SunCo gas company. Head over there and speak with him. Once you're finished talking with him you can either do the warehouse mission or do the side missions first. Even if you don't do the side missions now, you can still do them when you get back so, whatever. And if you're smart, you won't need ammo for this mission, but if guns are your thing then by all means... ********* Mission 3: The Sabbat Warehouse ******** To start this mission go to the oil tank at SunCo. gas company and speak with Tung and tell him you're ready to go. It's best to sneak to start out with. Sneak through the underground area you're in to the hole in the floor on the left side of the room. Open the door and you should see a guy across the hall relieving himself. I know it seems cruel but sneak attack him or drain him dry while his back is turned and you won't have to worry about him. Go back out into the hall and take a left into another room. You can go to your left and through the hole in the wall or if you want you can go straight and kill the guy at the far doorway if you need blood or just want to kill him. Go to the far upper right side of the courtyard and find a box with 6 shotgun shells behind a dumpster. Now make your way up to the platform with the bum and go inbetween the train and the fence in order to avoid two guys. Take the first left inbetween two train cars and wait for a sabbat thug to pass and sneak attack him. Then walk to the left side of the building. There's one guy over here but if you get into a fight with him no one hears assuming of course you don't use guns, so whatever you feel like. Now climb up the ladder. Might as well pick up the ring in the far right corner to pawn off later. Use the vent at the far left side of the room and you're up in the rafters. Make your way around by staying on the rafters, and try not to fall down. Drop down to the catwalk when you get to the chains hanging down. You should be facing a door, pick it with Blood Buff if you need to. Walk over and plant the Astrolite Another sabbat thug will enter the room kill him quietly if you don't want to have to fight your way out. Obfuscate works wonders at this part if you have it. Getting out without being seen without Obfuscate is possible but really really hard, so don't worry about it if you get caught, just get the hell out of there. Make it to the platform where the bum was before the timer counts to zero or you'll have to try it again. After the warehouse goes poof, you'll meet with a very interesting individual. Speak with him and then the game will take you back to Tung. Speak with Tung about the guy you met and about you successful mission and then hop in the taxi on second street and go see LaCroix, you have to make a detour and speak with Nines before you get to LaCroix, it's scripted, no way to avoid speaking with Nines. Special Note: If you kiss LaCroix ass really good (i.e by not asking for rewards and by taking his missions as soon as he presents them) you'll get a second, and nicer apartment quickly, after the Dane mission. ************************************************* ****************** Downtown ********************* ************************************************* Make your way to the Ivory tower and speak with that fat security guard you met at the Gallery Noir. Then go up and see LaCroix to get your next mission. At this point you can follow the riddle that was left on your desk about the mystic sun. Walk around in this section of the city until you find a building with a purple/red glow at the top (it's on the same road as the red and white VW bus). Enter the building and wonder around on the bottom level until you find the Tremere Regent and speak with him. Then head on over to the Last Round speak with Damsel and Nines at least. If you ask Nines about fighting it will raise your brawl stat up to one. ************ Mission 4: Elizabeth Dane ************* You'll need to go back to Santa Monica for this one. Go back there and then go to the beach where the Thin Bloods are. Talk with Mercurio if you didn't tell LaCroix that he screwed up and he'll sell you some weapons. If you want to do this mission the way LaCroix asked you, then you won't be needing weapons, plus this mission is easier if you don't make too much noise. Go over to the water and jump up on the boat. Once it's finished loading climb up the ladder and crouch when you get to the top. Sneak your way up to the stairs and go down them. Stay close to the wall and go through the door on your right. Go through the door at the end of the hall. Lockpick the first door on your left in this hall (Blood Buff if you have to). If you've got a rank in security, while your still buffed, pick the door on your right to get the ships manifest, if you can't pick a lock of 6 even with blood buff, don't worry about it, you can still get it though it will be a bit harder. Go up the stairs that you came to and go through the door on your left at the top. Sneak up to the door infront of you and then drop down to the ground when you get outside. Sneak along the crates until you reach a place that you can climb up, then do so. Staying as far away from the edge as you can, drop down to the ground, if the guard sees you, you might want to upgrade your stealth and try again. Hide inbetween the boxes around the corner and wait for the guard to pass you, then sneak up to the opposite side of the light brown crate you saw when you dropped to the ground. Wait for the guard to pass. Go around the container box and stay as far to your right as you can and go around the corner. Go around the next corner and you should see a table with the police report on it, pick it up and then climb the ladder behind you. Once you're all the way to the top look down and make sure there are no guards below you. Watch out for the one to your right and sneak to the small area between the two crates. Watch out for guards and sneak behind the blue box in front of you. Once the guard is kind of far away sneak up towards the sarcophagus, as soon as you get a quest completed notification sneak back behind the blue box or inbetween the two crates. Watch the guards and when you get a chance sneak over beside the big crate opposite the sarcophagus. Follow this crate around the corner. Skip the first opening and go into the second. You should see another ladder that you can climb. Climb up it, walk across the crate, drop down and then climb up the next ladder you see. Stay along the edge of the crates and sneak around. STAY ON THE CRATES! See that big light infront of you? On the side of the building that the light is shining on is the key that you need. Sneak over and pick it up. Don't move the crane or the guards will get suspicious and you might get a shotgun to the head from the guy who's up on the crates with you. No worry about him though if you don't mess with the crane. Sneak around the crates (stay on them) and take the first left inbetween two crates. Stay to your right to avoid the shotgun guy. If you look at him and then look a little to the right you should see a narrow gap inbetween two crates go there. Watch out for the guards and then drop down to the ground. If they don't move you can go all the way around the boat to get to that door, but I'm sure you can figure out how to do that, Obfuscate also works extremely well. See the red light? Go in there, the key you got will open it. Pick up the ships manifest. Exit through the door you didn't come in through. Go through the door and your left and then take a right and then take the next door on your left. Up the stairs, through the door, across the boat, up the stairs and then back down the ladder to your boat... simple eh? Now go and see the Prince. If you fed Heather your blood back at the clinic you see her again now and she'll be your ghoul who will stay at your apartment and give you money (like $20) if you ask, she can change her appearance (ask her twice for a nice outfit) and will let you feed on her. Occasionally (for me it only happened once) she'll ask for some blood. It only takes one point away from you so let her have it. ************* Mission 5: Missing Malk ***************** Seems you'll be heading into the hills to check out Aleister Grout's mansion. Jump in a cab a head up there. Grout is a Malkavian, so I'm sure you've already assumed that's this is going to be eh.. different. Of course, this is my favorite level, it is quite reminiscent of American McGee's Alice, for those who've played that game. Enter Grout's mansion and go through the first door (the enemies are easy to see so I won't go over them, kill them if you wish, sneak past them, whatever. I'm only going to tell you where to go). Past the foyer take the first right, duck under the pile of uh, stuff, and go to the door at the end of the hall. Kill the guy playing with the lights and read Grout's riddle on the table. You'll need to turn on the lights on. And with the guy playing with them I can't give you an exact solution. Just keep trying, you'll eventually get it (actually it shouldn't take that long, I just did it in like 10 seconds). Now go back out the way you came to the room with the guy walking in circles (sort of). Go through the double doors opposites the hall you emerged from. At the far end of this room to your left is another light lever, use it and then go up the stairs. Follow the hall to the end and walk up the stairs. Go out the door across the walkway and into the other door. Go down these stairs. Across the room and to your right, then go down the stairs. Go out the door to your left, and then go through the door on the opposite side of the room. Go up to the fire-place and look closely, you should find a button, press it. Once you're on the other side, kill the two girls in here. Then go into the hall and kill the guy running around. Follow this hall up the stairs, and go through the door. Go to the other side of the library and you should see three more candle holders and they should all be off. If they're all off the order is (with the far left being 1): 2,1,2. Go through the doorway that just opened up (just jump down). Lot's of electricity. Flip the switch on your left. Now go into the middle and then go left. Pick up the Tarulfang and flip that switch. Go straight and a little to your left and flip that switch. Go to the one to your right (facing the switch). Go to your right (facing the switch) skip the first one and hit the second switch. Now flip the last switch to the right of the exit. Go through the exit and pull the lever. Follow the hall to its end and go through the door. Go to your left and follow the hall. Go through the door on the opposite side of the room. Go to the opposite side of the room and through the door. (optional)Sneak into the room to your right and go to the end. Pick up the key that you find and then go back out into the entryway. Go into the room across from where you entered and use the key on the freezer. You'll get some blood. And two of them will be Elder Vitae.(end optional) Go down the incline to the left of where you came in at. Follow this all the way down and use the double doors you find to your left. Go to your right and through the doors. Go to your left and through those doors. Finally go out the doors at the end of the hall. There's a guy right when you walk in so watch out. Follow this hall to its end. Go to the cell at the end and use the rubble to climb up to the top. Kill the guy in here and go through the double doors between the clocks. Climb the stairs and use the record player to open the doors on the other side of the room. Go through those door to find Grout. Go through the doors opposite the ones you came in. Drop down and kill the guy. Go through the doors that he opened on your left. Kill the two guys in here and go through the door on the opposite side of the room. There aren't any wrong turns you can make from here. Follow this long hall until it spills out into a room and use the window to escape. Now go and see LaCroix. ************ Mission 6: Grand Theft Sarcophagus ************* Once LaCroix gives you this mission hop in a cab and select museum (you won't need many items seeing as how you're not supposed to kill anyone). To start off walk down the stairs and look at the raptor to your left, you'll be coming back here shortly. Now walk to your right around the curved hallway. Walk all the way to the end of the hall and go through the door. Follow the next hall around until you come to a door that is slightly ajar. Open it and get the key inside. Keep going (shorter) or go back the way you came until you get back to the raptor. Go inside the door next to him. Watch out for guards in this room and Sneak around to your right. Once you pass the camel go down the stairs with the T-Rex head. Take a right at the bottom and follow the wall until you get to Museum Lost and Found but don't go in. Instead look to your right at the white door and go in there. Walk to the other side of the room and go through that door. Look to your right in here and you should see a vent shaft. Go in there. When you get to the 'T' intersection take a right and drop down into the room. While sneaking open the door walk over and take the keys. Go through the opposite door and out the door to your left. Follow the wall to your right. Go through the door on your right after you pass the main entrance (two really big doors). Go through the door at the end of this hall and through the door on the opposite side of the room. Then head down the stairs and watch out for guards. If you stay on the green line you're safe (from the cameras anyway), but what you need is on the red line. So watch the camera to your right and wait until it looks at you (while you're standing behind the door) then when it starts to move away, sneak up and get underneath it. Watch it and when it takes its focus off of the door infront of you sneak in there. It's dark in here so if you've got a decent stealth the guy in here won't see you (use Blood Buff if you need to pump up your stealth for a few seconds, hope you got that item from the Regent instead of money). Get on the computer, password pterodactyl for cameras1 and velociraptor for cameras2, and disable the cameras. If you can't seem to make it in without him seeing you, don't worry. You can still finish the mission but you'll have to get past all of the security cameras the same way you did the first one, it's harder, but still possible. Also not that for the path that I give you, you only really need to disable cameras1 if that helps any. Go down the hall opposite the security camera control room door. At the end take a right and enter the room to your left. Get the ring and the watch to pawn in the desk and get the code for the door, 2358 (or, if you don't care about the ring and watch don't bother, since I just gave you the code). Now head back out to the hall and take the first right. Following the hall go into the first room on your left and pick up the key card inside. (optional) Go left when you leave the room and follow it until you see a window. Break the glass down and go inside to pick up the Fetish Statue. See the side mission Supernatural Food-chain. (end optional) Take a right outside of the room and enter the code above on the keypad. Follow this hall (watch out for the camera if you didn't turn them off) until you get to the door at the end. Go through the door and smack the metal box to your right with a knife to screw up the IR lasers. You still have to time them right but now it's possible to get through. Go through the door at the end of the hall to your left. Go to the end of this hall (only one door in here) and go through it. Now go and see LaCroix... again. ********** Mission 7: Finding Gary *********** Now you need to go to Hollywood to find Gary, the elder Nosferatu. But first (and second, and third....) you need to go speak with Isaac Abrams. He's at a jewelry shop in Hollywood. He has a couple of missions for you to do for him first, plus there are quite a few side quests in hollywood too. ********** Mission 8: Scary Movie ************ Isaac wants you to pick up a video that he bought. So go to the Ground Zero internet Cafe. Once inside go to a computer with the logon name josefk and use the password kafka. (The Cafe is across from the Red Spot 24 hour store) It will tell you to go to the alley behind the Fast Buck. So what are you waiting for? Talk to the guy he will mention a name, go back and see Isaac. Ask him about Ginger Swans then head over to the graveyard, it's just across the street from the Fast Buck. Beside a few bums is some wood covering up a hole in the wall, move the wood and go through the hole. If you want talk to the guy in the little shack in the middle of the grave yard, his mission is pretty simple (especially if your female) so I won't go over it. Go to the end of the cemetery and into the big building. Take a left at the intersection and then a right then a left. One of these will open and the tape will be inside. Take it back to Isaac. ********** Mission 9: Scary Move 2 *********** Head on over to the Sin Bin. Talk to the guy in there about the tape. You'll probably have to dish out $500 for the info (I did and I had an excellent persuasion and seduction so) unless you're a Malkavian. *You can also go downstairs and through the first door you come to and access the computer. Go to the private folder and use the password dirtydog to get the information for free.*(submitted by Zid) So after you've extracted that information head on over to the Red Spot and answer the ringing phone. You only have one response, so use it. Now head over to the Lucky Star Hotel. Go up the stairs to your right and you should be almost right infront of room 2. Go inside and pick up the key to the Internet Cafe. Go there now. Go to the back of the Cafe and use the card, now go up the stairs. Kill the thing that jumps down the stairs. Enter the room and kill the three badies. Go to the opposite side of the room and head left. Kill the thing in this room and go through the door across the room. Go down the stairs and out the door. Go down the hall and out the door (the other door is locked with a 10) Go down these stairs. Kill the creature under the stairs and make your way across the room. Talk to the guy you find cowering in the corner. Go to your left and use the boxes to make it up into the room. This is the locked door from before so you can find your way back out from here. Take the tape (it was inside the room if you missed it) back to Isaac. Show him the tape. ******** Mission 10: House on Haunted Hill ********* After showing Isaac the tape jump in a taxi and head up to kings way. Go to your right and through the door. As soon as you can go right again and climb the lattice. Now walk around to the other side of the house and go up the stairs. Go inside through the door up here. Go out to your right and then down the stairs. (If you haven't figured it out I'm not telling you where all the enemies are, most of them jump out at you and you can't hide from them anyway) Head into the kitchen and take a right. Go down the stairs to your right. Continue down the stairs and through the door on the right side of the room. Down more stairs and into the next boss fight. Not too hard. Ignore the creatures he spawns (he'll just make more) and just focus on him. Once you beat him go through the double doors. Crouch down and go into the sewers. ******** Mission 11: Welcome to Hollywood ********** Fall down the hole and crawl into the sewer pipe. Go over and read the workers notes if you want. To your right just as you emerge from the pipe is a lever use it. Kill the creature and then head left. Go to the end of the hall and into the pipe to your left. Follow the pipe until it spits you out. Go to your right and use the lever beside the gate to open it up. Swim to the other side. Take a left and read the ledger if you want (there's also some ammo behind a locked door, lock of 5) or go right. Three creatures in here so watch out. Head left and a little after the hall turns right, look to your right for a pipe, skip this one and go to the next one down the hall. Follow these until you get to the main path. Continue down the path. Go over to the emergency release valve and get ready to take a swim. See that big circular tunnel? Swim through it. Climb up the ladder on the left side before you get chopped to bits too. Time to kill some creatures. From the side you're on, look to the other side. Go through either of those pipes. Once your on the other side pick up one of those barrels in the corner and lob it at the machine to stop it up. Then use it to help you reach the pipe up above it. Go through that pipe. Quite a few of those creatures in this room. Make your way left and go through the opening and across the platform. Go down the stairs and to the other side of the room. Drop into the hole in the floor and crawl through the tunnel. Open the door and crawl out. Head up the stairs to the door and walk across the platform. It will break so try and time it right to avoid the electricity and climb the ladder. Once you're on the platform and have killed the creatures us the pump control lever. Now wait a second and then hit the lever again and quickly run and jump over the rail to the left side of the room (opposite side that you fell from) and swim until the T intersection. Go either way you please. Once you're at the top swim to your right. Now kill this bad-ass. Then walk up to the gate and use the lever to the right to open it. Crouch under the gate and walk to the intersection. Head left and go to the next intersection where you need to go right. Go all the way to the end of this hall and follow it right. Go up the incline and kill a few more baddies. Go to your right and you should see a gate with a lever to its left. Use the lever and go through the gate. Drop down into the water. In the right corner are some pipes that you can climb, climb up them and then jump over to the platform. Go through the door on your right labeled Control Station 3. Now you can either fight this beast or.... you can look on the left side of the room at the grate in the wall, shoot it out and jump in there if you're not much on fighting. Your call. Miss the jump and it's your neck. (you can also walk along the very very narrow ledge around the side, but when she's, it's a she right?, throwing things at you, be careful not to get knocked off). Go into the big tube that you see. Jump over to the ladder and climb down. You're going to have to fall all the way down. Make it easy on yourself and jump from pipe to pipe so that you actually make it all the way down without dying. I'll wait here until you're at the bottom. Once your down there's only one way to go, so take it. Take your first left. (I recommend sneaking) I'm not going to tell you where every enemy is, because there are a lot of them, and several are those things that you just killed or ran away from so.. your call again. Go down this hall until you get to the intersection and take a left. Take a right at the end of this hall. At the next intersection take another right and then a left at the next. Go up the first right and take a left at the top. At the end grab the pass key from the corpse to your right go back and take the first right and then the next right at the T intersection. Take a left at this intersection and then take the next left. Take the right and then take the next right to avoid an enemy. Follow this hall around and go inside the room to your right. Go over to the control panel at the other side of the room and use the pass key to open up the portal. Jump down. Congratulations, you've finally found the Nosferatu. Swim up to the shore and take the passage to your right. Follow this and take a right. Jump down beside the Luckee star sign. Facing the sign go left. Cross the bridge over the lake. Follow this hall to the T intersection and take a left. The room on your right is Mitnick. Remember him because he'll give you a side quest later if you want it. Talk to him if you want and then go out of his room and to the left. Imalia is the first door to your left once you leave Mitnick. Doesn't quite look the same as she did in the picture at Carson's eh? She has a mission that you can do as well. Get them both while you're down here to save some time. Anyway take a left out of her room and then another left across some broken catwalk pieces. Once across Gray will start talking to you when you enter the room. Take the door to your left to exit. ******************************************** ************* Chinatown ******************** ******************************************** ******** Mission 12: Chinatown Rescue ********* Gary wants you to rescue one of his boys from Chinatown. He's not sure where he is, just that he's gone missing. So guess who gets to go find him? So head out of the graveyard and hop a cab to Chinatown. Might want to do some of the side missions in Hollywood while you're still here but, your choice boss. Once you get to Chinatown go to the temple at the end of the road a little past The White Cloud. Go and talk to Ming Xiao. Ask her about the missing Nosferatu. She will send you over to The Red Dragon. Ask the hostess to see Wong Ho, she will send you upstairs. Once up there speak with him. He will want you to find his missing daughter first. So head over to the Lotus Blossom, it's almost just across the street in a side alley. Once inside sneak all the way to the end of the hall and go up the stairs to your left. Kill the two guys in the hall way and walk to the end of the hall. At the end of the hall kill the two guys in the room to your right. Go into the room at the end of the hall. Once inside you'll find the little brat. Let her out of the closet and then get out of there. Then go back and speak with Wong Ho. Ask him about the Nosferatu he'll direct you to a friend of his in the import warehouse. Outside of the Red Dragon take a right and then a left at the intersection. Take a left at the gap in the wall and go to the end of the alley. Then take a right and you should see a Zhao's Imports sign. Go around behind the building to the door. Go up the stairs and speak with him in his office, after you speak with him you'll need to make your way to the door as quickly as you can. Don't try to fight them, you're severely outnumbered. ******** Mission 13: Here's Johnny ********* Go back out to the main road and go left. Go through the gap in the wall and keep going. Go past the first door on your right and go to the end of the alley and follow it right. Go to the door on your right and use the code 725. Crouch before you enter and sneak up the stairs to your left. Make your way around the room to the double door at the other side. Go through the other doors in here. After you kill Johnny make your way back outside and go to the Fu Syndicate building (it's on the same road as the taxi). ******* Mission 14: Supernatural Tests ****** Once you're inside Fu Syndicate take a left into the conference room. Then go right through the doorway. After a short cut scene go through the doors. Time your way past the lasers and continue to the next room. In here shoot the three power boxes behind the grates to your left to stop the three blades. Once in the next room kill the scientist holding the cross. After you kill him four Mercs will come in through the door at the top of the ladder. Kill them in whatever way you can, and then go through the other door. After this you'll be in a room with water on the floor. Take a shotgun and shoot the things on the ceiling on each side to disable them. After which the door on the other side of the room will open. One in here move to your left as far as you can and take the shotgun and shoot the flamethrower, it will explode causing the glass window to break. Jump out and kill the Mercs and the scientist. Then find the door that leads to some stairs. Go down the stairs and kill the Mandarin. Take the key from him and let the Nosferatu out of the cell. Go through the double doors you saw in the other room and take a left. Go down the hall a ways to some double doors, and let him hack the computer to open up the other doors. Make your way back and go through the newly opened doors. Let him hack the computer and erase all files on the Kindred. Then leave the building. ******* Mission 15: Giovanni Reunion ********* As soon as you leave Fu Syndicate the phone on the wall will ring. Go and answer it. Gary will tell you to go to the Giovanni mansion. Get in the taxi and head up there. You'll need to find a way inside. You can do this either by killing the man or woman (whichever one matches your gender) infront of the fountain, or convincing them to give you their invitation. Once you're inside go through the door infront of you, and then through the doorway. Turn to your right and you should see the door that you need to go through. The door infront of you is where you need to go, if you are able to pick it (level 8) then skip down a ways, otherwise continue. Unfortunately the only other way to open this door is to fight Bruno in a huge gun fight. So I strongly Recommend getting three levels of security and using blood buff. Bruno himself is not that hard, however you're going to have a lot of other people shooting at you. *There is another way to get into that room. If you have a high enough seduction level (9 works, but I think 8 would too), you can talk to the woman on your right near the door. Seduce her and she'll take you down there, open the door for you etc. There seems to be another way if you talk to the woman near the piano - you can do something for her that may allow you to get in too - not sure yet how to (it's get some info on the other's who are in a good position), but it should work. *(Submitted by Apocalypse) If you got into the room by picking the lock the lever to open the door you need to go through (it's behind a bookcase) is actually a sword on the wall. Use the sword and the a bookcase will move to the side revealing a hallway. Follow the hallway to the end and you'll come to a door which you need to go through. You'll find yourself in a strange medical room. There is a lever almost directly infront of you when you walk in. The lever will make the table infront of it act like an elevator. Before you go down go to the side of the room opposite the one you came in through. Opposite the door on this side of the room is the 'Giovanni Book'. This is the book that Pisha wanted (see Supernatural Food-chain side mission). Now go down using the elevator. There are a lot of zombies down here so watch your back. Note that zombies can be killed in one hit by charging them and attacking with a knife right as you run into them. It takes some practice but is very useful. Make your way to the end of this hall and take a right. As soon as you walk through the door look left and pick up the Saulocept. Leave the room and go right. Go through the doors infront of you. Take a left and go down the stairs. Once you get to the T intersection go left. Stay as far right as you can and you won't fall through the grates. Follow the hall and go through the door in front of you at the end. Continue through the next door as well. Somehow the door at the end of this all seems to know how many zombies are in the room, so you'll have to kill all of them. Proceed through the next two doors infront of you. Continue following the hall until you get to a sideways T intersection. Take the doorway to your right and continue going the same direction you were going in. Go inside the second door that it will allow you to go into. Follow this a bit and it will empty out into a room with a few zombies. Kill them if you wish and then go into the only other door in the room (it's almost opposite the room from where you entered). Follow the stairs down. Now you're in for an interesting fight. This one's pretty hard so I hope you bought a Katana. I recommend focusing on them one at a time and just avoiding the other. After you're finished with them it will take you back Downtown, go and speak with LaCroix. ******** Mission 16: Riddle Me This ********* What's inside the big box? Don't know yet, but LaCroix wants you to find out. So.. you'll need to go to the Society of Leopold in order to speak with the man who discovered the sarcophagus. So hop in the yellow beetle again. (Also you should probably stock up on ammo or a Katana). This mission isn't really that hard and doesn't take that long either. I will be giving, as always, this guide assuming that you are going to be sneaking and not guns blazing. After you arrive run forward a little ways and then crouch and sneak forward the rest of the way. Once you pass the first part of the hill in your way head to your right. Make your way to the back of the house and try to do it quietly. The first door you come to should be open. Once you're inside, sneak up to the small computer on the other side of the room. Go to power and use the password soc. After you turn off this laser sneak up behind the hunter praying at the alter and kill him. Wait for the guard patrolling the hall to start walking away from you. Sneak up behind him and into the room on your left. Wait for him to walk past you and kill him. Turn off the lasers protecting the armory and take whatever you want out of there. Go down the hall and into the room on your left take the journal and read it if you want. Then kill the three hunters in the foyer. If you can't pick a lock of 9, take the door to your right and go up the stairs, at the top walk into the room directly infront of you. You may need to kill the guard who patrols into that room but otherwise you shouldn't need to kill any of the others. Pick up the key inside this room and head back down the stairs and go through the door across the room and down into the cellar. You're most likely better off to kill all three of the hunters down here. After you're through with them go to the back of this room. Look at the barrel on the bottom second from the left. Move it out and go into the crawl space it reveals and down the ladder. Follow this hall and go through the door. Make your way down these large stone 'steps' and make your way through the hall at the end. (see Saving Some Ash for a side mission at this point if you would like) Take a right when you get to it and then make your way across this room as quietly as possible. Go through the doors you come to at the end. Now you get to fight the hunter you saw at Grout's mansion. He's not that hard, just annoying. You'll get a couple of hits on him and then he'll use his powers to blind you for a bit while he runs away like a coward. If you're not a marksman, try and stay behind cover while you run up to him and then take a couple of hits with a Katana. After he falls run up the stairs and talk to the professor. Once you're done with him you'll need to escape quickly. Run as fast as you can out of this room and into the next. Run almost all the way across this room and jump into the little boat. If you took Johansen with you you'll get some humanity. Go speak with Beckett and LaCriox. ******* Mission 17: Purging the Sabbat ******* Well it seems that the price wants you to remove the sabbat from the city of lost angels once and for all. This is not a simple task mind you. This is one of the harder levels in the game, so stock up on your favorite items, do any side quests you want to do first and then head to the Hollowbrook Hotel. Well their leader is in the basement of the hotel, however, despite all your vampiric powers, you won't be able to break down the door. Instead you'll have to go into the alley beside the hotel and use the scaffolding to go up to the roof and make your way down. Once you get inside go down the stairs and open the door. Unfortunately you're not going to be able to be completely silent, so gun fights are going to happen. Go down the stairs and go left into the room. There's a guy to your right, take care of him. Make your way into the hallway across the room from where you entered. Couple of guys with shotguns in the room to your left. Take care of them and proceed down the hall. There are a lot of guys down this hall, with shotguns, machine guns, and a few of them are using disciplines, so watch out. Follow the hall to the end and take a left, kill the big dude and go into the room behind him, drop down through the hole in the floor. Directions are pretty useless on this floor, just follow the people trying to kill you. Eventually you'll find a hole in the far corner of a room that you need to go down. After you find the hole leave the room through the door and go into the hall and take a right. You can stealth kill the three guys in this room, so I recommend doing so. After you leave the room turn to your left, the door will break open and you'll need to go through there. Again just follow the people trying to kill you. Eventually this level will lead to an elevator shaft that you need to drop down into. Follow the people who don't like you and eventually it will lead you behind a bar. Stay behind the bar until your health goes back up. This is the sub-boss. The best thing to do is to equip your shotgun and gun up beneath the guy on the right side of the room. Jump up and fire at him until he's dead. Do the same thing for the guy on the other side of the room. After their gone jump through the fire on the stairs and kill the guy at the door. Now go back down the stairs and through the newly opened door. Go through the hall and down the stairs and out the door. Now you're at the main boss. Not much strategy to this fight, just don't get killed. Just run around the room and when you get a chance slice him with the Katana, eventually he'll fall. Now go back and speak with LaCriox. ********* Mission 18: A Walk In the Park ********* Special Note: If you want to do any of the remaining side missions, do them now, this is your last chance. LaCriox has told you to go to the Last Round, so go there. Speak with Damsel when you enter. Tell her LaCriox wants an alliance and that the Blood Hunt is over for Nines. Ask her where Nines is, she'll tell you that he's in the park. So hop in a cab and head to the park. Once you get to the park enter the building and get in the lift. Once you get to the top, walk out of this building and speak with Nines. This is where it gets rough. That werewolf that just appeared... you can't kill it. You'll just have to run away from it. Use the observatory to hide from it. It won't keep him from getting to you, just slow him down a bit. You have to run out the clock and then make a dash for the lift, get in it and ride back down. Have fun! ************** Mission 19: Blood Hunt ************* Well it seems that the tides have turned. You're now being hunted. You have to make it from you apartment to where Tung was hiding out (the gas station) and get in the cab. There are a lot of people after you, so I strongly recommend staying out of sight. If your stealth is high enough and/or you have obfuscate I'd recommend using it to get out of the alley, otherwise kill the few guys waiting for you at the end, these are the only guys you need to kill. After you're past them sneak down the street toward the parking garage. There are a few guys waiting for you at the entrance. Instead of confronting them, sneak around inbetween the Gallery Noir and the garage. The very last bars have been removed so you can jump through them and get into the garage from here. Make your way through the garage; watch out though two of the guys in the garage have shotguns. After you get out of the garage, you're home free as long as you keep sneaking. Sneak up to your right and speak with the cab driver and get the hell out of there. ****************** The Final Ride ***************** This is your last chance to stock up on supplies, and to decide your fate. Tell the cab driver what you are going to do and then you can start the last mission. The last mission has one or two parts, depending on which fate you choose. The choice is yours childe. If you choose to align yourself with the Kuei-Jin, skip part 1. ********** Mission 20 Part 1: Ming Xiao *********** Stealth kill the two guards in here, and then go through the doors opposite where you entered. Head through the door to your left. Sneak around to the right side of this courtyard and go through the door. Go out the other door in here. Kill the three guards in here and go through the two big doors. Hide behind one of the pillars and wait until you get a good view of the guards back and kill him. When you get to the end of this hall, take a right and kill the guard in there. Then go down the stairs. In this area watch out for traps. If you stay to the right as far as you can you won't get hurt by most of them. Head down this until the four-way intersection and go left. Go up to the alter and take a left. Sneak around this room, killing any of the guards you need to and then leave through the hall. Go all the way to the end and head right. Make your way to the opposite side of this room. And go left (watch out for the guards on either side of the doorway. Stay as far to the right of this hall as you can, you'll trigger some guys hiding in the walls. If you're as far to the right as you can be and have a good stealth feat, then you won't have to fight them. When you get to the balcony watch out for the guard below you and jump down. Head to the big door with the board infront of it. MAJOR GLITCH!!!!! There is a handle sticking out of the wooden plank for you to walk into it to move it. If, when you walking into it, the board doesn't move, save your game where you are and then reload it and try again. It should work. Proceed through this door and take a left. Follow this hall and then take a right (the right after the right with a guard infront of a door) and walk down this hall. There are guards in these walls so you need to find the right path to walk through in order to avoid them. The correct path is illustrated below. ---------- | _ _ | ||_| |_| | | ----| -- _ | _ |_| ||_| | * Starting here. In this room you'll need to push a vase and stand onto each of the two different color tiles to move the statue and reveal stairs. Go down the stairs and through the door. This part is kind of hard. There are four jade statues placed at the four corners of this basement. You can collect them by getting just barely into the doorway and targeting them, without disturbing the guards. When you pick one up make note of the style of stand it was on. You need to place all of the statues on their appropriate stands. They are as follows: Crane - Diagonal Cat - Circles Dragon - Horizontal Elephant - Vertical After you have placed all four, a portal will open leading you to Ming Xiao. She is probably the toughest boss. She will take a long time to beat but if you do it right it shouldn't be that much trouble. What you need to do is run at her and attack her with the Katana (preferably); then you need to run away and dodge her acid breath. Also, and this is very important if you don't want to fight another one like her, every time one of her tentacles falls off, wait for it to turn into a small little creature, then you need to hit it with the Katana (or shoot it) and it will die. If you don't do this you will have to fight two of them. The good news is that if you screw up and you are fighting two of them. You only have to focus on Ming Xiao, because when you kill her, the other will die as well. After you kill her walk back to where you entered the room and pick up the key. Then walk into the portal again. Now you can stock up on items again and then go and see LaCriox. ********** Mission 20 Part 2: The Prince ********** Go up and speak with Chunk, then put that pathetic piece of meat out of his misery. Go up to the elevator. You're going to have to defend yourself from the other guards, who will put up more of a fight the Chunk did. After you're finished with them get in the elevator. It won't take you all the way to the top so you'll have to bail out early. Go left into the room and then go left again. Follow this room and kill the guard in here. Go through the double doors and kill the guard in here, and continue out of this room. Go straight through these doors as well. Once you're inside this room either kill or avoid the guard and go through the single door on your left. Now head up the stairs. At the top unless you can pick a lock of 8 head right. Just head all the way down this hallway, and exit through the door at the end. There's only one guard in this room at first, but it suddenly become more crowded when a SWAT team shows up. Either kill everyone or just sneak around them. Make your way down the small stairway and to the door on the same side of the room of where you entered. Go through this door and up the stairs. Up on the roof is another SWAT team. Head across the roof and into the vent shaft on the other side. Go through the door to your right and make your way to the other side of this room and go through that door. Couple of guards in here so take care of them. Make your way to the opening at the left side of the room. Now you get to fight LaCriox, sort of. He's a total pushover so this shouldn't take you long. After you've beaten him take the Astrolite he drops and put it in the elevator. Push the button for the elevator to go up, but don't get in it. It will blow and clear out the top level for you. Get the elevator back down and then take it up. Pick up the weapons up here if you want and then go into the other elevator and take it up to level 7. Go up the stairs and go to your left. Once inside go right and then get on the computer. Type in lights and use the password hitthelights. Turn them off and make your way. Leave the room to your right and then take another right. Follow this hall all the way around and eventually you'll come to a conference room with an elevator in it. Kill the two vamps in here and take the elevator up. Now you get to fight the sheriff. He's actually not that hard... in this form. Run away from him until he swings (watch it, sometimes he swings two or three times) and then hit him once or twice and then back off. Celerity will definitely give you an advantage here if you have it. Anyway after you beat him he turns into a Behemoth. Now here he's a lot tougher, unless you can figure out how to really beat him. Just ignore the war-form vampires and run straight across from where you start and turn on both of the search lights. He'll fall from the sky! Blood Buff and beat the crap out of him with a Katana and he should fall. Also do not kill the SWAT members, as they are helping you. Only kill the vampires if they are getting in your way, but remember, if you kill them, more will come. After you beat him, you're done! Well done childe. Now sit back and enjoy whichever ending you set yourself up for. Enjoy! ************************************************** ****************** Side Missions ***************** ************************************************** ***************** Ease the Pain ***************** If you want some humanity you can offer to get some pain killers for Mercurio.

After speaking with him for a little bit you'll find out that his bounty hunter is missing... and guess who gets to find him? So after Art gives you the key to his apartment you'll need to head over to the suites (where you found Mercurio, his is the apartment across the hall from him). Listen to his recording and check his computer, password imalia. Pick up the key off of the TV and head on over to the tattoo parlor. Also remember where this place is, once you get a lockpick good enough to open that chest in there, come back and get it you'll need what's inside for another side quest. Once you're inside the tattoo parlor, it's on the same street, make your way downstairs and answer the phone on the wall. You and the man on the phone will decide to meet up at Gimble's Prosthetics at the end of Main Street sort of behind the suites, so head there now. Push the button let him know that you spoke with him on the phone and he'll let you inside. Finish speaking with him, and then follow him to the back of the building. When you get downstairs you'll find Carson in a cell, and then Gimble will come out to kill you with a severed arm. Dispose of him and then let Carson out. You can take the arm with you if you want (you sicko!). Now head back to Arthur and tell him the bad news about Carson. Now he's going to want you to find out if some other guy has skipped town or what, so you'll need to go to the apartment across the hall from yours. Once you get there you can either pick the lock to her place or pick up the key behind the plant at the end of the hall, your choice. Once inside her room listen to her answering machine. Also if you'd like a book to pawn or want some stealth skill there's a book in the corner of her cabinets beside the stove. Go back and tell Arthur and he'll give you $150 for your trouble. This mission will continue with The Face of Death. ************* The Face of Death ****************** Get this at the pier in Santa Monica. This mission takes a while to complete. Go to the pier in Santa Monica and look at the hanging corpse, that's all you can do for now. Do the Lost Merc mission and you'll get a clue to where the next killing will take place. After you finish the Lost Merc mission, you need to head to the Skyline Apt. building and go to the second floor. Pick the lock (level 5) and go inside. Listen to the answering machine on the counter. Now head on over to the Last Round but don't go in. Instead go across the street from it and you find, a little down an alley, a white door with some stairs up to it. Go into this building and you'll see another violent scene, talk to the bum. After you're finished speaking with the bum, turn to your left and climb the boxes up to the next level. Walk around to where the corpse is handing and pick up the key laying beside him. And if you didn't figure it out from the key, you need to head to the Luckee Star hotel in Hollywood. Once inside go out the door and up the stairs to your left. Go inside room number 6. Right beside the phone to your left is a key card for Brothers Salvage back in Santa Monica so go there. Once inside the gate go into the small building. Go out the back door. Things will start getting flung at you and exploding, do your best to avoid them but remember that if you get hurt, you can just sit there and let yourself heal. Once you find the guy you'll start talking to him, you can either let him go and fail the mission, or kill him. He's not that hard, just blood buff and let into him with the Katana. You've now finished the serial killer mission. ************** The Devil's Confession ************ To kick this mission off go to club Confession in Downtown and speak with the bar-tender. Tell her you drink blood. She'll ask you to take care of some guys in the parking lot next to the Empire Hotel, run on over there and speak with the guys. Once you kill them head back over and speak with Venus. Now, if you agreed to do it, you'll need to head over to the Empire Hotel, sixth floor. When you get to the top go to your left and open the door. If you want a book to raise your brawl skill go into the second room on your left (there are three mafia thugs in there). Go into the fourth door you see on your left and go through the grate to your right. Use the door to your right, there's one guy in this room. Go through the double doors at the far side of the room. Once in the hall take a left and then a right. "Convince" (in whatever way you're good at) to let him let you in. Once inside kill the guy in there*, pick up the goods and make your way back to Confession the same way you got in, unless you want to explore some. Note that there are people in here who will shoot you on sight. Once you get back to Confession talk to Venus, she'll take you back to her office and will make you a partner in the club. She'll give you $250 and you can come back every once in a while and get some more. *Or if you don't want to help her out, when you get to the Russian boss, instead of killing him, you can make a deal with him. He will ask you to kill Venus and in return will pay you some money. The choice is yours. *(submitted by Thibault Thomas) ********* A Plague for the Angels **************** Get this mission from either The Regent or from Damsel. If you go with The Regent he will send you to Damsel but go to him first anyway, as when you complete the mission he will reward you with either an item or money. To start this mission go to the Skyline Apartments in Downtown. Once inside go to the fifth floor. (Notice that there's only one apartment per floor? Odd eh?) Check the answering machine on the island inside the apartment. Then go up the sixth floor and use the code 1203 on the keypad. You'll need to go up to the bedroom and speak with the girl there. If she doesn't tell you what you need to know get her appointment book inside her closet. If you go downstairs to the wall at the left of the door you came in from, you find a key behind the right vase. Use it to open up the safe in her room, she won't be needing anything in it anymore ($200). If you want a couple of items to pawn off go to the third floor and use the code 9648 on the door. Go upstairs and use the password 'jewels' on the computer to open up the safe that's inside the bedroom closet. Next you'll need to go to the Empire Hotel, if you want to save a trip do 'The Devil's Confession' side mission since you'll need to go to the Empire Hotel for that one as well. Speak with the concierge and tell him you're looking for Jezebel. Ask for her room key. If you're good at persuading, or are a Malkavian, get him to give it to you, otherwise take the hall to your right and go into the first door on your left. Use the little machine to your left just as you enter to get the key to her room. Then go to the fifth floor. This is another boss fight, so you might want to have full blood points. She's not that hard, I recommend a knife and Blood Buff, or a shotgun. After you've taken care of her go back and see Damsel. She'll tell you that you need to go talk to some bums. Go talk to the bum near club Confession. Convince her, either with persuasion or $20 to talk. She'll tell you that you need to find Tin Can Bill. He's down the alley just across from the Last Round so head back over there. Talk to him and he'll tell you that he was taken down into the sewers. So guess where you need to go next? So hop down the nearest man-hole you find to your right. Once you're in the sewers go straight and then take a right. Continue down this path until you get to a gate back up a little and go in the through the tunnel. When you splash down go to the doorway on your right. This is yet another boss fight. This one's a little tougher too. I suggest a shotgun. Hope you still have a blood back or two also. He'll drop a piece of paper in front of the guy just sort of hanging out on the wall, which will tell you where you need to go. Use the lever on the wall to open the gate and use the two wheels to open the grates in the floor. When you walk out take a right and climb over all the rubbish. Follow this path and jump over the hole in the floor. Continue down the hall and take a right at the intersection and then climb into the little tunnel in front of you to reach the surface again. If you remember seeing this symbol on one of the buildings go there. Otherwise go to the Last Round and walk down the street looking at the sides of buildings until you see it (should be on your right). From the Last Round (coming out of it) take a right, at the end of the street take a left, follow the street right and then take a right at the intersection. Go around behind the building and through the black door. Give the guy the paper you found and he'll let you in. This next part is the hardest part of this mission so be prepared. You'll have to enter the crackhouse and make your way to the top. Best way is to just run past all the zombies, if you do it right you shouldn't get hit until you reach the top. Once at the top you'll have another very difficult boss fight. This guy uses a shotgun and uses Celerity, so unless you have Celerity level 4 he will be faster than you. I'll walk you through the building up to him, then you're on your own beating him. Go up the stairs and once you're at the top take a left and run all the way to the end of the hall and enter the room on your right. Go through the door on your left and the take a right. Again door on your right, door on your left, go right. Make it to the end of the hall, and go in the door on your left. Jump through the hole in the floor and jump through the other hole in the floor. Go out one of the doors. If the way is blocked off to your left, wrong door, use the other one. Now again, make it to the end of the hall. There will be double doors on your left, enter them and get ready for the big bad boss fight. Just hang out for a few seconds after you beat him and it will set you back at the entrance of the crackhouse. Now run over and see Damsel. After you speak with her go and see the Regent. He'll offer you either money or an item. Take the item, it will double the amount of time your Blood Buff lasts. ************* Gargoyle Tamer ******************** Get this mission from Isaac. Go to the theater across the street from Isaac. You need to either kill the gargoyle or convince it to join with Isaac. Trust me, you don't want to try and kill it. Basically all you have to do is tell it that Isaac is against the Camarilla and their rules and he will join with him, assuming of course you have a good persuasion. Otherwise use bashing weapons (your fists, tire iron, or a baseball bat) to slay him. Guns and slashing weapons are practically useless. After you do one or the other go back and tell Isaac. *If you want, before you kill the Gargoyle you can go and speak with the Regent. If you persuade him enough he will tell you that he was the one who made the gargoyle and will give you a special object to raise your defense against it. After you defeat it go back and speak with him and he will give you $500. Note also that if you're Tremere that you can get a new haven this way. *(Submitted by Thibault Thomas) *********** Good Food, Bad Critic *************** Get this mission from LaCroix through an email he sends you. Seems LaCroix needs you to make a critic give a restaurant a bad review. It's not that hard. Go find the guy (he's near Isaac's jewelry store) tell him you're a fan, and then tell him that he'll give anything a good review. Check your email and mailbox after you're done. ************* Rescuing Ash *********************** Get this mission from Ash, he's on the second floor of the Asp Hole club. Seems that Ash has some hunters after him. You can help him out one of two ways, you can either trick the poor smuck downstairs who looks like him to switch clothes with him or you can try to escape through the sewers. Needless to say getting him to switch clothes is much easier, but if you don't have the necessary persuasion go with the sewers. There's not really much to describe. Just run through the sewers and kill all of the hunters and make sure Ash lives. Not that easy but simple. ************ Imalia's Magazine ****************** Submitted by Thibault Thomas and Beelzebubbe If, while you're speaking with Imalia, you make her mad and then appologize for it and ask to make it up to her, she'll ask you to find a magazine with her on the cover. You can find the magazine at the Sin Bin. Just ask the guy at the counter, though it might end up costing you $500. ************** Imalia's Bane ******************** Get this mission from Imalia, she's a Nosferatu now so look there. She wants some dirt on Tawni so she can ruin her career. Go to Tawni's apartment across the street from the Luckee Star Hotel. When you go in, go up the stairs on the right side of the room. Walk past the table and take a right. Put the camera on the table behind the guy on the couch. Wait for him to leave the room and go into the bedroom and place a camera on the nightstand. Wait for him to leave the bathroom and then go into the bathroom and place one under the sink. Go back into the bedroom and go behind the screen and get on the computer. Use the password cleopatra. Now get out of there and head back to Imalia. Imalia will give you $400 for your work. (Notice how in this game news and mail travels really really fast?) ************** Mitnick's Tangled Web ************ Get these missions from Mitnick, he's the computer geek Nosferatu. Mitnick doesn't give you any specifics in person. After you get the mission go back to your haven and check your e-mail. The first one will be Megahurtz Computing at the end of 2nd st. in Santa Monica. This one's really easy with no one you have to watch out for but I'll go over it anyway. Make sure you pick up the key card from your mailbox and head on over to Santa Monica. The store is behind the Asylum. Once inside go straight ahead into the room with the open door. Climb the boxes and go into the vent. Follow the vent into the room and turn on the power. Go back through the vent. Go out that room and head right. Go through the first door. Get on the computer and use the password 'Gil Bates' Type in schrecknet. Now go back to your haven to get Mitnicks next email. The next network you need to link is at The Nocturne Theater. You've got to plant a camera and then activate it with the computer downstairs. Unfortunately you'll have to enter the theater through the sewers, so head down there. If you're using the haven at the skyline apartments, there's a sewer entrance in the basement. Go around the corner, through the door and up the ladder. Go across the catwalk to the other ladder. Crawl to the middle and then to your left. Place the camera and make your way back down the way you came. Time the guards and make your way across the stage. If you're following the guard when you get a chance go into the first door on your left and wait for him to pass. The door with the computer in the last door on your right. Type camera and then net cam. Then type net security password this time is break a leg. Now make your way back to your haven and check your email. Now you get to go into Metalhead Industries (if you're interested in Gary's Little Secrets mission below, there's an item in here you'll need for it) which is in Hollywood, so jump in the magic yellow beetle (the taxi) and head there. Same drill as last time, don't get seen and don't kill. (make sure you pick up the key in your mailbox). Best to crouch before you open the door, just to be safe. Watch out for the guards in here. You should be okay if you stay against the wall to your left. Right before you get to the fork-lift, turn inbetween the shelves. Go to the door across the room. Go inside and get on the computer. Type operations and use the password codpiece. Unlock the door to the office and then head up there. Once inside get on the computer and type safe (if you want the item for Gary's mission) and use the password Turbo Lover. Get the cd out of the safe and get back on the computer. Type in net security and use the password Bang Your Head. Type schrecknet and get out of there. Head back to your haven. Now you get to go to Chinatown. Mitnick needs you to go to Kamikazi Zen. Get the key out of your mailbox (notice that not only the name is Japanese but the key card also sports a Japanese flag on it) and head to Chinatown. The building is right after The White Cloud. Sneak around to the right and go into the second room on your right. Get on the computer go to the 'power' directory and type hooligan. Now you've only got ten minutes to do this in, but that should be plenty. Head out the door and go right. Go right through the double doors and go down the hall. Go until you get to another double door with a keypad use the code 4567. Go up to the intersection and take a right. Get on one of these computers. Type vault password nippelhcs and open it. The type net security password nirvana and then type schrecknet. Now get out of there. You should have plenty of time. If you're not that good at stealth and you don't, don't sweat it you can still get out. Leave through the double doors and go into the third office on your right. Type in mitnick! and then rescue and he'll open the vent behind you. No go back and see Mitnick for your reward. ************** Gary's Little Secrets *********** Gary will send you an email after you meet him with these. Gary has some very nice posters just hanging around underground, and well, he's willing to part with them in exchange for some items. The first one he'll ask for is a tape called Tap Hotel. You can get it in the Chinese Theater in Hollywood where the gargoyle was. It's up front right infront of the screen. Drop it in your mailbox, leave and come back and wham! you've got an awesome picture of Jeanette (it's already hanging in your apartment). To get the second one you'll need to do Mitnick's mission (or at least the first three parts) it's the CD in the safe. Same deal as before, in the mailbox and boom! poster in your apartment. (Damsel poster) For the third one you need to go to the first floor of the Skyline Apartment building. The photo's that you need are up the stairs in the bedroom on the table. Put it in you mailbox for another poster. (VV poster) The fourth one is the hardest to get. You'll need a lockpicking skill of 8, without using Blood Buff*. It's in Carson's apartment (across from Mercurio) but you can't use Disciplines there, so you'll have to just buff up your Dex and security the old fashioned way. Tape + mailbox = poster. (Ming Xiao Poster) *Correction: You can use Blood Buff to pick the lock. After you start to pick the lock you will then be able to activate Blood Buff. (Thanks to Curtiss) ************** Hunting The Hunter *************** Get this mission at Vesuvius exotic dancing. The first time you go there VV will talk to you. She'll ask you to go upstairs with her and then she will give you this mission. After VV gives you all of the details, head on over to Sin Bin (if you would have listened to her you'd already know where to go now wouldn't you?). Ask the guy upstairs about her. Now head downstairs and lockpick the first door you see. Go inside and get on the computer. Open the directory 'peepshow', the password is sinner, then type lockdown. Now head back out into the hall. To your left is a coin machine. Lock pick it and take the money. Wait for a minute until the other guy leaves (it can take a little while). He'll eventually run out of money and since you took all the money out of the machine, he won't be able to use it so he'll leave. Now pick the other employees only door. Talk to the girl in there and get her to leave. Then go into the dancing room and kill the girl in there. An easy way to do it is to blood buff and then feed on her. Now go back and see VV. *************** Find the Snitch ******************* As you're about to leave VV will start talking to you again and give you the chance to take another mission. To start this one off go to the Luckee Star Hotel. Talk to the guy in there. Convince him to give you his script for his movie. That part is the easy part. The harder part is convincing him to give you the name of his source. Once you do that (which may cost you $500!) go to Santa Monica beach. The source the Hatter was using is the Thin Blood with the speech problem. You can either let him go and gain humanity, or you can kill him and get experience, the choice is yours. Go back to VV after you're done. ************ Supernatural Food-Chain ************** Get this mission by going into the abandoned hospital in Downtown. Go through the gate beside the white and red VW bus. Go down into the basement of the hospital and Pisha will ask you to find the guy you met when you first came into the hospital. When you return to where he was, you should notice that he is gone but has dropped a business card leading you to the Skyline Apartments first floor. You'll find him cowering in his bedroom closet. Tell him it was just a joke and he'll go back. Now go back and talk to Pisha and she will give you another mission to do. After you've completed the Giovanni mission (see above), bring Pisha back the book you found in the medical room. In exchange for it she will give you the Key of Alamut. Also, if you retrieved the Fetish Statue from the museum, you can give it to her in exchange for the Odious Chalice. READ FIRST!!!: Give her the Fetish Statue first, otherwise you won't be able to give it to her at all. ************** Silencing The Ghoul *************** (Submitted by Thibault Thomas) If you've spoken to that really annoying ghoul in club Confession (the first girl to your right when you walk in), you can go to the last round and speak with the black guy upstairs. He will tell you that she needs to be silenced to protect the masquerade. Go back and speak with her and tell her you found her master and that he's outside in the alley. When you leave club Confession take a left on the road and go into the alley directly infront of you. Kill her and you'll lose some humanity but gain some experience and get a masquerade redemption. *If you haven't finished the 'Supernatural Food Chain' but have talked to Pisha. You can tell Patty that her master is waiting for her in the old Hospital. *Submitted by Beelzebubbe and Adrian) ************* Fat Larry's Briefcase ************** (Submitted by Thibault Thomas) Get this mission from Fat Larry. He can be found Downtown down the street from Club Confession. Right next to the parking garage entrance. After you buy some stuff from him and do some of the missions in the Downtown area, he'll give you the chance to make some money ($500 to be exact). You need to go into the parking garage to your left. Make your way through the four level that are full of people who don't seem to like you much. Get to the bottom grab the briefcase and get the hell out of there. Take it back up to Fat Larry and he'll give you the money he promised. ****************** Fishy Demon ******************* Get this mission from Yuki in the Ramen shop across from the White Cloud in Chinatown. If you speak with her she'll tell you that she's hunting a Hengeyokai demon. Tell her you'll help her and then go speak with Ming Xiao and ask her about it. She'll direct you to the Red Dragon. Go in the Red Dragon and go talk to the guy sitting in the corner in the bar area. Tell him you want to kill Zygaena and he'll tell you to meet it at the fish market which is beside Zhao's Auto Import. Go back and speak with Yuki. Stock up with ammo and/or a Katana and then go meet Yuki at the fish market. Go inside and after a brief dialog you'll fight it. If you shoot or slash the tanks on the walls it will freeze the demon if he is close enough giving you a few free hits. After that Yuki will thank you and then leave. If you want a quick $200 you can find it behind one of the pillars. ************* The Hitman Imposse ***************** Get this mission from the Lu Fang, the drunk guy in the Red Dragon after you complete the Chinatown Rescue mission. He will tell you that he's got some money stashed away but needs a key that his old partner has. He tells you to kill him and bring him the key back and he'll give you 20 percent. Go and speak with Ji Wen Ja, the fortune teller near the Golden Temple. Tell him about your deal with Lu Fang and he'll tell you he'll give you 30 percent of the money to kill Lu Fang. You can repeat this process until you get to 80 percent which turns out to be $1000. If you decide to kill Ji Wen Ja you'll loose some humanity, but if you kill Lu Fang you won't so it's your choice. You'll also get 4 xp. But, if you can convince them to be friends again you'll get 6 xp instead. So it's your choice over money or xp. *************** Eye Gouge Hell ******************* After you complete the Chinatown Rescue mission go to the White Cloud gift shop and speak with Mr. Ox. He'll tell you a story and ask you to go get some eyes for him. The are located behind the ramen shop were you got the Fishy Demon mission. Go around behind the building and go through the door beside all the posters. There are two guys inside but they are extreamely easy to sneak around. Go through the door to your left and select the corpse. Take the eyes from him and give them back to Mr. Ox. He'll give you $150 and the next mission. *************** Bad Luck Farmer ****************** After you complete the Eye Gouge Hell mission for Mr. Ox he'll give you this mission. He wants you to take a bad luck talisman and put it in a locker in the Lotus Blossom. The lockers are downstairs in the back so go around behind the Lotus Blossom and down the stairs. Go through the door to your right and you'll be in the locker room. Find the locker with the black circle on it and put the talisman in it. The guy who's locker you just put it in will come through the door behind you, unless you're a Malkavian you're probably going to have to kill him, but he is human so he's not that difficult. After you're done go back and tell Mr. Ox that you've done what he asked and he'll give you $250. ************** Saving Some Ash ******************* Well, it seems that Ash has been captured by the same hunters that captured Johansen. Do this mission while doing the Society of Leopold mission. Instead of taking a right like I tell you to do above, go straight. Kill the two guards that are speaking to each other and walk over to the cage and speak with Ash. If you have it give him some blood (in the form of a blood pack). Unless you can pick a lock of 10, you're going to need to find the key. Wouldn't it make sense for the guard standing near the cage to have it? Well, it would, but then that wouldn't be much of a challenge then since you already killed them right? So now you're going to have to go back to where I told you to go right and go right. Go all the way to the other side of the room and kill the last guard (the one patrolling) to get the key. Try to do it quietly or you're in for quite a fight. Get the key from him and go back and let Ash out of his cage. ************************************************* ************* Glitches and Problems ***************** ************************************************* Problem: Can't move the board in front of the door in Ming Xiao's temple; Solution: Save your game where you are and then compleatly exit the game. Start the game but up and load your save, you should be able to move it. Problem:The boat at the end of the Society of Leopold mission is not there; Beckett tells you to wait but then never appears and you can't move; Solution: Load your most recent save game and go back through the level. If it still doesn't work you may have to load an even older save game and try it again. It sucks but it seems to be the only way. ************************************************* **************** Contact Vayne ******************** ************************************************* Please read the "Read Me First" at the top of the guide before you e-mail me.
