I've always found the Blueprints in the same locations, but the actual upgrade has been different. I've found 8 different locations for the 7 available blueprints. Do a search for "!Blueprint" for known Blueprint locations. Bio Formulas locations are slightly random. Some Bio Formulas are always in the same place and some Bio Formulas might be found in an alternate location. Do a search for "!Bio Formula" for known Bio Formula locations. Please email me if you know of other locations for Blueprints or Bio Formulas at (nyiaor [at] yahoo [dot] com). 2RF-08 Bio Formula (Heartiness) 2RF-08 Bio Formula (Iron Lung) 2RF-08 Blueprint 2RF-12 Bio Formula (Energetic) 2RF-16 Bio Formula (Inventory) 3RL-04 Bio Formula (Stamina) 3RL-04 Bio Formula (Medic) 3RL-05 Blueprint 3RL-06 Blueprint 3RL-21 Blueprint 3RL-21 Bio Formula (Defensive) 3RL-21 Bio Formula (Forge) or (Armor) 4CD-01 Bio Formula (TMD Ammo) 4CD-04 Blueprint 4CD-05 Blueprint 4CD-09 Bio Formula (Armor) if not found at 3RL-21 4CD-12 Blueprint 5PC-10 Blueprint 5PC-19 Bio Formula (Forge) if not found at 3RL-21 ----------------------------- Phase Ticks keep killing me ----------------------------- Target a Phase Tick and age it using the TMD. This will cause all nearby Phase Ticks to attack the aged Phase Tick. This is the easiest way to deal with swarms. Using a Deadlock and running away also works. Age the orange bulbs with the TMD to prevent additional Phase Ticks from spawning. -------------------------------------------------------------- How do I get 15 kills with the Autocannon without reloading? -------------------------------------------------------------- The easy way is to wait until the last level of the game. Fully upgrade the clip size and kill the numerous enemies on your way to the Singularity. You can try to get the 15 kills when trying to rescue Kathryn, but you need to upgrade either the damage at least once to get past the Elite Spetsnaz at the start of the chase without going through an excessive amount of ammo. The other soldiers can be killed with a very short burst. Hold down Mouse 2 to keep the barrels spinning to avoid the firing delay. Also, be very careful when picking up items or interacting with items since you can accidentally reload as both actions use the same R key. Use the TMD to pull items to you instead of trying to pick them up. -------------------------------------- How do I get 10 Revert Bomber kills? -------------------------------------- This is another achievement that is easy to get on the last level. You need one and a half bars of E99 Energy to make a Revert Bomber so you need at least one E99 Vial or the TMD Amplifier upgrade. You can't revert Elite soldiers. You need to have at least three enemies in the area. One Revert can quickly kill another soldier before it explodes. ----------------------------- How do I get E99 Tech Geek? ----------------------------- You need to find all 10 Bio Formulas and purchase at least one level of each Hero Perk. The Weapon Upgrade does not count. The hard part is finding all 10 Bio Formulas. You can only reload the last checkpoint and often times it is impossible to backtrack. I've played through the game twice on each difficulty and marked down the locations I know about. ----------------------------------------- How do I get "Mother My Brain Hurts"? ----------------------------------------- This secret is found on the fourth mission, Central Docks. You need to get on board the Pearl and find the Dethex Launcher. Maneuver a radio-controlled grenade through the channel on the wall and floor and detonate the grenade behind the closed door. See checkpoint 4CD-07 for details. ---------------------------- How do I get "That Wheel"? ---------------------------- This secret is found near the end of the game on the sixth and final level. You need to Uber Impulse the grate in the TMD Upgrade room and go down the ladder. See checkpoint 6SL-09 for details. ============================================================================== ___ (O) \ | (X) | [GPC] CONTROLS \___/ ============================================================================== CONTROLS | ----------------+----------------- Movement | W A S D Fire | Mouse 1 Aim | Mouse 2 Jump | Spacebar Use/Reload | R Crouch | C Switch Weapon | Mouse Scroll Up Weapon 1 | 1 Weapon 2 | 2 Sprint | Left Shift Age | Q Impulse | Mouse 3 Anti-Gravity | E Deadlock | E Use Health Pack | H Chrono Ping | F ============================================================================== ___ (O) \ | (X) | [GPW] WEAPONS \___/ ============================================================================== --------------- WEAPON BASICS --------------- There are 9 weapons available in the game. 7 of the weapons can be upgraded. You can carry two upgradeable weapons and 1 special weapon. You always drop a special weapon when trying to switch weapons. You can upgrade a weapon's clip size, reload time, and damage. Each attribute can be upgraded two times. It costs 1 Weapon Tech to upgrade an attribute the first time. It costs 2 Weapon Techs to upgrade an attribute a second time. It costs 9 Weapon Tech to fully upgrade 1 weapon. There are 29 Weapon Techs available in the game. --------------- WEAPON LOCKER --------------- Most weapons that you find are stored automatically in the Weapon Locker. You can't store the Seeker or the RLS-7 Rocket Launcher. Use Weapon Lockers to switch weapons, upgrade weapons, and buy ammo. There are 29 Weapon Lockers scattered around Katorga-12. --------------- WEAPON TABLES --------------- Numbers represent the number of bars shown in-game. Actual damage, range, and accuracy for the Seeker and RLS-7 are estimates. Ammo = how much ammo you can carry 50 E99 = how much ammo you can buy at a Weapon Locker for 50 E99 Name | Damage | Range | Accuracy -----------------------------+-----------------------+--------+------------ Centurion Revolver | 14.25 - 16.25 - 18.25 | 10.25 | 13.0 AR9 Valkyrie Assault Rifle | 13.25 - 15.25 - 17.25 | 18.0 | 16.5 Volk S4 Shotgun | 17.5 - 20.25 - 23.0 | 16.5 | 7.5 Kasimov SNV-E99 Sniper rifle | 17.5 - 21.25 - 23.0 | 23.0 | 21.5 Autocannon | 15.25 - 17.5 - 20.0 | 9.0 | 10.0 Spikeshot Railgun | 20.0 - 23.0 - 25.5 | 15.25 | 13.0 Dethex Launcher | 15.25 - 17.5 - 20.0 | 15.25 | 13.0 -----------------------------+-----------------------+--------+------------ Seeker | 18 (estimate) | Guided | Unlimited RLS-7 Rocket Launcher | 54 AOE (estimate) | Guided | Unlimited Name | Ammo | Clip | 50 E99 | -----------------------------+------+-----------------+--------+ Centurion Revolver | 24 | 6 - 9 - 12 | 6 | AR9 Valkyrie Assault Rifle | 360 | 30 - 38 - 46 | 30 | Volk S4 Shotgun | 72 | 6 - 9 - 12 | 12 | Kasimov SNV-E99 Sniper rifle | 24 | 5 - 7 - 10 | 5 | Autocannon | 600 | 100 - 150 - 200 | 200 | Spikeshot Railgun | 20 | 5 - 7 - 10 | 5 | Dethex Launcher | 16 | 4 - 5 - 9 | 4 | -----------------------------+------+-----------------+--------+ Seeker | 12 | 6 | n/a | RLS-7 Rocket Launcher | 10 | 1 rocket | n/a | -------------------- WEAPON INFORMATION -------------------- CENTURION ----------- Type: Revolver Found: 1WD-03 (Worker's District, in the house) Ammo: 24 Clip: 6 - 9 - 12 Damage: 14.25 - 16.25 - 18.25 Range: 10.25 The Centurion is the first weapon you find. Ditch it once you find any other weapon. Never upgrade the Centurion. AR9 VALKYRIE -------------- Type: Assault Rifle Found: 1WD-06 (Work's District, in the library of the school) Ammo: 360 Clip: 30 - 38 - 46 Damage: 13.25 - 15.25 - 17.25 Range: 18.0 The Valkyrie is the best balanced weapon in the game. You can easily finish the game on any difficulty using just the Valkyrie. Ammo for the weapon is plentiful as it is the primary weapon used by enemy soldiers. Hold down Mouse 2 to aim using the scope. Upgrade the damage first, then clip size, then reload. VOLK S4 --------- Type: Shotgun Found: 1WD-07 (Worker's District, after meeting Devlin) Ammo: 72 Clip: 6 - 9 - 12 Damage: 17.5 - 20.25 - 23.0 Range: 16.5 The Volk is not quite as balanced as the Valkyrie, but easily the second best weapon in the game. The Volk is a great Mutant and Zek killer as any close range shot is almost always a one shot kill. Definitely upgrade the clip size first to overcome the small clip size. The Volk also benefits from the reload upgrade. If there is ONLY one weapon you want to fully upgrade, think about upgrading the Volk as every upgrade is useful. KASIMOV SNV-E99 ----------------- Type: Sniper Rifle Found: 1WD-08 (Worker's District, outside the Radio Tower) Ammo: 24 Clip: 6 - 9 - 12 Damage: 17.5 - 21.25 - 23.0 Range: 23.0 The Kasimov is a one-hit kill on any regular soldier, Mutant, or Zek. The crosshair on the scope glows when centered on a target. Press the Left Shift key to slow down time. You can get in about three slow motion shots before the effect wears off. The Kasimov does not really need to be upgraded beyond the clip size. AUTOCANNON ------------ Type: Minigun Found: 3RL-14 (Rail Line, after meeting up with Kathryn) Ammo: 600 Clip: 100 - 150 - 200 Damage: 15.25 - 17.5 - 20.0 Range: 9.0 This is your typical machine gun with multiple rotating barrels. It takes a second or two for it to spin up and start firing, but you can hold down Mouse 2 to keep the barrels spinning so it fires without delay. Fire the Autocannon in short bursts. Just a couple of direct hits is enough to drop regular soldiers and Zeks. Upgrade the damage at least once before any heavy usage. The only drawback to this weapon is that you move slower with it equipped. SPIKESHOT ----------- Type: Railgun Found: 3RL-05 (Rail Line, on the crane platform) Ammo: 20 Clip: 5 - 7 - 9 Damage: 20 - 23.0 - 25.5 Range: 15.25 This weapon fires a magnetically accelerated explosive spike. You have to hold down Mouse 1 to charge the rail before each shot. Wait for the crosshair to meet in the center. Release Mouse 1 to fire. The damage represents the explosive damage after a brief delay. The area of effect can kill tightly clustered targets. You have to be very precise when aiming the weapon. The Spikeshot comes with an integrated heat sensor that is accessed by holding down Mouse 2. DETHEX LAUNCHER ----------------- Type: Grenade Launcher Found: 4CD-07 (Central Docks, on board The Pearl) Ammo: 16 Clip: 4 - 5 - 9 Damage: 15.25 - 17.5 - 20.0 Range: 15.25 Immediately upgrade the damage on this weapon, preferably do both damage upgrades. By default the Dethex fires grenades in an arc. The higher you aim, the farther the grenade travels. Hold down Mouse 2 and click on Mouse 1 to spit out a steerable grenade. Continue to hold Mouse 2 and use the movement keys (W A S D) to move the grenade. Press Spacebar to make the grenade jump. The radio-controlled grenade is always visible behind obstacles as a circle so you can continue to steer it. Let go of Mouse 2 to detonate the grenade. This is a great way to kill enemies around corners or behind cover. SEEKER -------- Type: Prototype Rifle Found: 2RF-05 (Research Facility, given to you by Dr. Barisov) Ammo: 12 Clip: 6 Damage: about 18 Range: Special The Seeker is one of the special weapons that doesn't show up in the Weapon Locker and can't be upgraded. You automatically drop the Seeker if you switch to any other weapon. You can fire normally using Mouse 1. Hold down Mouse 2 to fire a special E99 projectile that can be steered by holding down Mouse 2 and moving the Mouse. Time also slows down while you're moving the projectile. The projectile explodes on impact or when it leaves the area. The area is defined by an invisible boundary that varies by location. The explosion has a very small area of effect and does not always kill multiple targets, but does a one-shot kill on normal enemies. RLS-7 ------- Type: Rocket Launcher Found: 5PC-16 (Processing Complex, dropped by a soldier fighting a Radion) Ammo: 10 Clip: 1 Damage: about 54 AOE Range: Special The RLS-7 is the other special weapon that can't be upgraded, stored in the Weapon Locker, and is dropped automatically when switching weapons. Mouse 1 fires a rocket that travels in a straight line and detonates on contact. Hold down Mouse 2 to fire a TRACKING rocket that follows the circle on the crosshair. You can use the tracking rocket to steer the rocket around some obstacles. The rockets are extremely powerful and can kill a Radion with about three rockets. ============================================================================== ___ (O) \ | (X) | [GPT] Time Manipulation Device \___/ ============================================================================== You get the TMD near the beginning of the second mission (checkpoint 2RF-03). The TMD can only affect organics (creatures and humans) or anything infused with Element 99 (E99) like plants or objects containing E99 infused metal. Look for the the E99 logo or the color orange on objects that can be changed using the TMD. --------- IMPULSE --------- Automatically becomes the melee attack. Mouse 3 to Impulse. Impulse sends out a wave of E99 energy in front of you. The power of the E99 wave decreases until it fades out completely. Impulse has a lethal range and a knockback effect. The starting lethal range is a little bit farther than point blank range. The lethal range can be extended by upgrading the Impulse power at an Augmentor. The knockback range is about 4 meters. Impulse uses up E99 Energy. Impulse costs 8 bars of E99 energy. Impulse can be upgraded two times to do more damage and extend the lethal attack range. Near the end of the game you get the Uber Impulse that requires no E99 Energy and can kill Elite Spetsnaz. The Shifty Zek, Hulk Zek boss, Tick Boss, and Elite Spetsnaz are immune to the Impulse power. Elite Spetsnaz can be attacked with the Uber Impulse. The basic Impulse can one-shot kill Mutants, regular soldiers, and Phase Ticks at melee range. Farther than melee range and the target is knocked down. Zeks and Reverts are highly resistant to the Impulse Power. | Lethal | -------------+------------+ Impulse | 0.5 meters | Impulse +1 | 1.0 meter | Impulse +2 | 2.0 meters | Uber Impulse | 3.0 meters | | Impulse | Impulse 1 | Impulse 2 | Uber Impulse | -------+---------+-----------+-----------+--------------+ Zek | 7 | 4 | 3 | 2 | Revert | 7 | 5 | 4 | 2 | ------------- AGE/RESTORE ------------- The cursor will turn into a semi-circle when you can age/restore an object or enemy. It costs no E99 Energy to age/restore inanimate objects. Aging an enemy costs 13 E99 energy and the aging effect is different for each type of enemy. Enemy Type | Cost | Effect ---------------+------+------------------------------------------------------- Mutant | 13 | Mutant rots then explodes Soldier | 13 | Ages soldiers to dust Zek | 13 | Makes Zek in-phase, Slows down in-phase Zek Phase Tick | 13 | Other Phase Ticks attack aged Phase Tick Revert | 13 | Makes Revert berserk and explode after a few seconds Shifty Zek | | Immune vs Aging, Impulse Spiky Zek | | Stuns Radion | | Stuns Hulk Zek Boss | | Immune vs Aging, Impulse Tick Boss | | Immune vs Aging, Impulse Elite Spetsnaz | | Immune vs Aging, Impulse ------------ CHRONO-PING ------------- Press the F key to show chrono-footprints. These footprints should lead to the current objective. This power is more useful for finding side paths. ------------- CHRONOLIGHT ------------- One of the Film Archives shows the Chronolight, but you never get a discrete upgrade for this power. Look for a ghostly out-of-phase object in a bluish cloud. Target the object and hold the E key to pull an object into phase. You can pull out-of-phase objects as many times as you want, but only one version of the object can be in-phase at a time. --------- GRAVITY --------- The first TMD Upgrade that's found in the Research Facility after returning to 2010 (checkpoint 2RF-08). The cursor turns into an orange circle when moved over any object that can be picked up using the Gravity power. You can grab inaccessible objects or use Gravity to pick up objects instead of using the R key. Press E to pick up and carry an object. A carried object can be used as a shield. Press E to drop a carried object. Use Mouse 1 to throw a carried object. You can use Impulse while carrying an object. Try grabbing a shield and Impulsing enemies at melee range. Any object that can be picked up can be thrown as a projectile, although heavy objects won't travel very far and not do much damage. You can catch objects thrown at you, like explosive barrels and rockets. You can also pick up grenades thrown by soldiers and toss them back. ---------- DEADLOCK ---------- The second TMD Upgrade. Found after leaving Barisov's Tower at the beginning of the Rail Line mission (3RL-01). Hold down E to charge up a sphere of chrono-energy. Press Mouse 1 to fire the sphere. The Deadlock sphere expands upon hitting anything solid. The Deadlock slows down time within the sphere and doesn't affect you. You can collapse the Deadlock by pressing Q to age the sphere. The Deadlock can be upgraded twice to increase the duration and size of the Deadlock. Deadlock (default): 10 second duration, 2 meter radius Deadlock Upgrade 1: 15 second duration, 3 meter radius Deadlock Upgrade 2: 20 second duration, 4 meter radius * Radius is an estimate ----------- REVERSION ----------- The third upgrade is found in the tunnels around the Reverts during the Rail Line mission (checkpoint 3RL-12). Reversion can be used against non-Elite soldiers and is used in combination with the Aging power of the TMD. You have to age a soldier before you can revert. It requires a full bar of E99 energy to revert a soldier. It costs 13 bars to age the soldier and another 13 bars to revert. The in-game instructions says to press Q quickly to revert. This is not accurate. You have to press Q once to age the soldier, pause, then press Q to revert the soldier before the aging soldier turns into dust. Revert soldiers attack the nearest enemy that makes a noise. Revert soldiers also draw aggro from you from any nearby enemy due to their aggressive nature. You can age a Revert Soldier to make them explode. This requires either an E99 Vial or at least three Energetic Upgrades, which gives you enough E99 energy to age, revert, and age without needing an E99 Vial to refill the E99 energy bar. If facing two soldiers, revert one and kill the revert. If facing more than two soldiers, revert one and age the revert to make him explode. --------------- TMD AMPLIFIER --------------- The fourth and final upgrade is found towards the end of the game in Dr. Barisov's Lab near the Singularity (checkpoint 6SL-08). The TMD no longer uses E99 Energy. The Impulse is upgraded to the Uber Impulse. The Uber Impulse can kill any of the remaining enemies you face including Elite Spetsnaz. You can now easily Age and Revert regular soldiers. ============================================================================== ___ (O) \ | (X) | [GPP] EQUIPMENT AND PERKS \___/ ============================================================================== ------------ AUGMENTORS ------------ Augmentors are used to purchase TMD Equipment and Perks using E99 Tech. E99 Tech is found out in the open and in containers. Container contents are randomized so it's hard to give a precise amount of E99 you'll find during the game. You need 21,250 E99 to buy the minimum amount need to get the E99 Tech Geek and Time's On My Side Achievements/Trophies. You need 69,250 E99 to buy every single equipment and perk, excluding the Weapon Upgrade. Equip the Scientist TMD Equipment as soon as possible to maximize the amount of E99 Tech you can loot. There are 18 Augmentors scattered throughout the game. Checkpoint | Amount of E99 available -----------+-------------------------- 2RF-08 | about 5,300 3RL-01 | about 5,100 3RL-05 | 3RL-14 | about 8,000 4CD-01 | about 3,200 4CD-03 | 4CD-05 | about 2,400 4CD-10 | about 5,200 with Scientist equipped 5PC-02 | about 3,500 5PC-03 | about 3,800 5PC-06 | about 5,500 5PC-11 | about 4,900 5PC-22 | about 12,600 6SL-01 | about 3,200 6SL-04 | about 2,700 6SL-05 | 6SL-08 | about 7,300 6SL-15 | about 8,300 TOTAL | about 81,000 ---------------- UPGRADE BASICS ---------------- You can buy 8 pieces of TMD Equipment, 2 TMD perks, 10 Hero Perks, and Weapon Upgrades. Most TMD Equipment requires a corresponding Blueprint except for Sharpshooter which you get for free. Hero Perks need a Bio Formula. E99 Cost | TMD Equipment ---------+-------------------------------------------------------------------- 1,500 | Sharpshooter - Improves all weapon accuracy 2,000 | Energized - Gain +1 TMD energy for each kill 3,000 | Healer - Gain +1 health for each kill 2,500 | Wrapper - You heal faster with Health Packs when not sprinting 2,000 | Tech Savvy - Gain +1 TMD Energy when picking up ammo 2,000 | Scientist - Sometimes gain double when picking up E99 Tech 2,000 | Search and Destroy - gain more ammo from enemy and loot drops 5,000 | Field Doctor - Regenerate 25% of health when not in combat ------ 20,000 | 5 cheapest are 9,500 E99 Cost | TMD Perks ---------+-------------------------------------------------------------------- 1,000 | Impulse 1 - Increases Impulse damage and knockback 1,000 | Impulse 2 1,000 | Deadlock 1 - Increases Deadlock duration and size 1,000 | Deadlock 2 ------ 4,000 E99 Cost | Hero Perks ---------+-------------------------------------------------------------------- 1,000 | Heartiness 1 - Increases your maximum health 2,000 | Heartiness 2 3,000 | Heartiness 3 4,000 | Heartiness 4 5,000 | Weapon Upgrade - purchase a Weapon Tech (unlimited) 1,000 | Energetic 1 - Increases your maximum E99 Energy 2,000 | Energetic 2 3,000 | Energetic 3 4,000 | Energetic 4 500 | Iron Lung - Increases the length of time you can hold your breath 1,000 | Stamina - Increases Sprint duration from 7 seconds to 10 seconds 1,250 | Medic 1 - Increases Health Pack effectiveness 2,000 | Medic 2 2,500 | Medic 3 500 | Inventory 1 - Carry up to 6 Health Packs (default is 5) 1,000 | Inventory 2 - Carry 7 Health Packs 2,000 | Inventory 3 - Carry 8 Health Packs 500 | TMD Ammo 1 - Carry 6 E99 Vials (default is 5) 1,000 | TMD Ammo 2 - Carry 7 E99 Vials 2,000 | TMD Ammo 3 - Carry 8 E99 Vials 1,000 | Defensive 1 - Decreases melee damage against you (mostly creature) 1,000 | Defensive 2 1,000 | Defensive 3 1,000 | Armor 1 - Decreases projectile damage against you (mostly soldiers) 1,000 | Armor 2 1,000 | Armor 3 5,000 | Forge 1 - Adds one TMD Equipment Slot (default is 1) ------ 45,250 | 11,750 to buy one of each Perk -------------------- TMD Equipment Info -------------------- After you purchase TMD Equipment, the equipment must be equipped by pressing the Q key. You start with 1 TMD Equipment slot and later can buy a second slot. You need to find Blueprints to make TMD Equipment at the Augmentors. The Blueprint locations appear to be fixed, but the actual TMD Equipment you find is randomized. Always immediately equip the Scientist TMD Equipment to maximize E99 Tech loot. Equip another piece of TMD Equipment after you buy the Forge Perk. I'm not sure exactly how much Sharpshooter improves accuracy. I've finished the game on Hard without ever equipping Sharpshooter. Energized gives you +1 E99 Energy per kill. Healer gives you +1 Health per kill. Tech Savvy gives you +1 E99 Energy when you pick up ammo and +7 E99 Energy for picking up an Ammo Box. Wrapper reduces the amount of time it takes to use a Health Pack when you're not sprinting. Search and Destroy adds about 20% more to ammo pickups. You don't always get extra ammo with every pickup. Ammo Pickups ------------- Weapon | Pickup | Ammo Box | Weapon -------------+--------+----------+-------- Centurion | 6/7 | 8/10 | 10/ Valkyrie | 12/14 | 120/144 | 24/29 Volk S4 | 6/7 | 24/29 | 4/5 Autocannon | 50/60 | 200/240 | 100/120 Sniper Rifle | 4/5 | 8/10 | 4/5 Spikeshot | 3/4 | 6/7 | Dethex | 3/4 | 4/5 | 4/5 Seeker | 6/8 | n/a | 12 RLS-7 | 3/4 | n/a | 7/9 ---------------------- Heartiness and Medic ---------------------- You start with 26 bars of Health. On Easy/Normal each Heartiness upgrade gives +6 more health. On Hard you get from +4 health for the first Heartiness upgrade and +3 for additional Heartiness upgrades. Health Packs initially heal half of your health bar on Easy/Normal and less on Hard mode. Each Medic Upgrade increases the amount of health healed. On Easy mode you get a significant increase with just one upgrade in Medic. On Normal mode each Medic upgrade heals 3 more health. On Hard Mode you get a bigger increase from each Medic upgrade, but start out with less healing per Health Pack and less maximum Health. Easy Max Health 26 32 38 44 50 Medic 0 13 28 Medic 1 23 27 30 Medic 2 Medic 3 Normal Max Health 26 32 38 44 50 Medic 0 13 16 19 22 25 Medic 1 25 28 Medic 2 28 31 Medic 3 31 34 Hard Max Health 26 30 33 36 39 Medic 0 10 11 12 14 15 Medic 1 15 18 19 19 Medic 2 23 23 Medic 3 28 29 ------------------------- Energetic and E99 Vials ------------------------- You start with 26 bars of E99 Energy. On Easy/Normal, each Energetic Perk adds +6 bars. On Hard mode, the first Energetic Perk gives 6 bars. Any additional Energetic Perks on Hard mode add 5 bars. Each E99 Vial, or E99 Energy Cell, will completely fill up the E99 Energy bar. Mode | Maximum E99 Energy ------------+------------------------- Easy/Normal | 26 | 32 | 38 | 44 | 50 Hard | 26 | 32 | 37 | 42 | 47 One Energetic perk is enough to give one extra Impulse attack. You need at least 3 Energetic perks to get an extra Aging attack. ----------------------- Iron Lung and Stamina ----------------------- Iron Lung allows you to hold your breath longer when swimming. I recommend purchasing Iron Lung before getting on board The Pearl during the fourth mission. There is also a lot of swimming during the next mission at the Processing Complex. Stamina allows you to sprint for a longer duration. By default you can Sprint for about 8 seconds. The Stamina perk lets you sprint for about 10 seconds. --------------------- Defensive and Armor --------------------- Creatures attack with melee, except for the Radion that attacks with a projectile. The Phase Tick explosion is considered melee. Soldiers all attack with projectiles, but can melee at close range. Purchasing at least one level of Defensive makes a notable reduction in damage when facing a swarm of Phase Ticks, especially on Hard mode. Some further testing while playing on Normal seemed inconclusive. I'm not sure Defensive or Armor reduces damage from Phase Ticks, but it is still recommended to purchase both to reduce the overall amount of damage taken. Each Defensive and Armor upgrade seems to reduce damage by one bar to a minimum of one bar. ============================================================================== ___ (O) \ | (X) | [GPE] ENEMIES \___/ ============================================================================== --------- MUTANTS --------- These are the first enemies that you encounter. Mutants move slowly when far away, but can quickly jump into melee range. Getting in a clean headshot is the guaranteed way to kill Mutants. A Mutant can still attack even if its legs are shot off and the torso is mostly intact. Aging a mutant causes the Mutant to rot (its limbs fall off) then explode. ---------- SOLDIERS ---------- Russian soldiers are the most common enemy encountered in the game. The majority of them will be armed with the Valkyrie or the Volk, although snipers are also encountered. Some soldiers will carry a riot shield and a Centurion. Aim for the legs or hand or use the TMD to pull away the shield. Elite Spetsnaz are encountered later in the game during the Rail Line mission. Elites wear special armor that makes them immune from the Aging and Impulse powers of the TMD and allows them to soak up more damage than the regular soldiers. Elites are armed with the Autocannon, Sniper Rifle, or RLS-7 rocket launcher. Aging a regular soldier turns the soldier into dust. You can turn an aging soldier into a Revert. ------ ZEKS ------ Zeks can phase out of time making them invulnerable to weapon attacks. Use the TMD on out-of-phase Zeks to force them back in-phase with normal time. Zeks can summon and throw explosive barrels. These barrels can be shot before they are thrown or caught and tossed back. Zeks also have a short-range teleportation ability. The shotgun is very effective against Zeks as any close range shot will one shot kill a Zek. Aging a Zek that is in-phase will make the Zek move in slow motion. ------------- PHASE TICKS ------------- Phase Ticks are mutated insects that rush you and explode. The damage stacks up quickly and can easily kill you on Hard mode. The Defensive Perk may reduce the damage from Phase Ticks, at least it seemed that way while playing on Hard Mode. Phase Ticks spawn from orange bulbs. Destroying one of these orange bulbs with a weapon spawns one or two Phase Ticks. Use the TMD to age the orange bulbs to make them disappear. Aging a Phase Tick makes all nearby Phase Ticks attack the aged Phase Tick. This is the most effective way to deal with swarms of Phase Ticks. Standing inside a Deadlock can also work, but you have to make sure you kill the Phase Ticks before the Deadlock collapses. Impulse works at wiping out swarms, but costs a lot of E99 Energy. Uber Impulse is a different story. Uber Impulse at will. --------- REVERTS --------- Reverts are humans that have been mutated by exposure to E99. Reverts are blind and only react to noise. You can sneak around Reverts, but it's better to get in close for an easy kill. Reverts have a vomit attack that should be avoided. Aging a Revert makes it berserk, then explode after a few seconds. A berserk Revert will attack the closest target which could could be you. The exploding Revert can kill multiple enemies. You can use the TMD to turn a soldier into a Revert at the expense of using an entire bar of E99 energy. This is an effective tactic when facing two or more enemies. You probably won't have time to turn a Revert into a Revert Bomb when facing just two enemies, so hold off on aging a Revert until you're facing at least three enemies. -------- RADION -------- First encountered at the Processing Complex, these immense creatures are naturally camouflaged to look like twisted trees. They attack with a powerful explosive projectile that can kill you with two hits. They can also absorb a lot of damage. The most effective way to kill a Radion is to put it in a Deadlock and unload on it with your most powerful weapon. *-- Additional suggestion sent in by jpaulino120 --* "Your strategy against Radions works very well, but to conserve ammo get behind them. They die much faster, thus conserving ammo. This is only what I've found and I've yet to play on hard, so you should test this out but it worked for me on normal so I don't see why it would change." Aging a Radion seems to stun it for a few seconds. ------------------------------------- Hulk Zek, Shifty Zek, and Spiky Zek ------------------------------------- Hulk Zek is a boss at the end of the second mission at the Research Facility. See checkpoint 2RF-14 for information. Shifty Zek is encountered twice. The first time is during the Rail Line mission (checkpoint 3RL-07) and the other time is at the beginning of the last mission (checkpoint 6SL-01). The Shifty Zek is much faster than the regular Zeks and spends more time out-of-phase. Shifty Zek is pretty weak and can be killed with a couple of well-timed Shotgun blasts. Spiky Zek is only seen during the Processing Complex mission (checkpoints 5PC-05 and 5PC-15). Spiky Zek fires parasites from one arm that reanimate dead Zeks. Spiky Zek can be stunned by using the TMD to age it. ----------- Tick Boss ----------- The Tick Boss shows up at the end of the third mission (Rail Line). See checkpoints 3RL-25 and 3RL-26 for more info. ----------- Tripwires ----------- These are orange plant-life that have been mutated by E99. Tripwires have three explosive tendrils that do damage when broken. Shoot the central bulb to destroy the tripwire, or use a non-explosive object to break the tendrils. ============================================================================== ___ (O) \ | (X) | [GPO] OBJECTS \___/ ============================================================================== ------ Ammo ------ Ammo can be picked up automatically by moving over it. This also works if you pick up or move over a weapon you already have equipped. Ammo boxes have a greater quantity of multiple types of ammo. An Ammo Crate always has one Ammo Box inside it. -------------- Health Items -------------- Stimpacks will instantly heal you when picked up. You can't carry Stimpacks. Health Packs can be carried and used by pressing the H key. A Health Crate always holds two Health Packs. The game refers to Health Crates as Medkits, which seems a little bit confusing, so I refer to Medkits as Health Crates. E99 Vials, or E99 Energy Cells, always fill up the E99 Energy bar. E99 Vials are used automatically whenever you try to use the TMD and don't have enough E99 Energy available. -------------------------- E99 Tech and Weapon Tech -------------------------- E99 is short for Element 99, the mysterious orange element found on Katorga. E99 Tech, or E99, is used to purchase TMD Equipment, Perks, and Ammo. E99 Tech can be found in quantities of +10, +20, +30, +100, +200, and +300. The Scientist TMD Equipment can randomly double the amount of E99 you get when you pick up E99 Tech. Weapon Tech is used to purchase Weapon Upgrades at a Weapon Locker. Each weapon has three attributes that can be upgraded. It costs 1 Weapon Tech to upgrade an attribute the first time. It costs 2 Weapon Techs to upgrade an attribute a second time. It costs 9 Weapon Tech to fully upgrade 1 weapon. There are 29 Weapon Techs in the game. You can retrieve weapons, upgrade weapons, and buy ammo at a Weapon Locker. There are 29 Weapon Lockers in the game. You can buy TMD Equipment, TMD Perks, and Hero Perks at an Augmentor. You can equip TMD Equipment or switch TMD Equipment at an Augmentor. There are 18 Augmentors in the game. ------------ Containers ------------ Supply Lockers and small Supply Crates can hold one random item: ammo, E99 Tech, a Stimpack, a Health Pack, or an E99 Vial. Padlocked Lockers can hold either one or two random items. Large Supply Crates can hold either two or three random items. ----------------------------------------------------- Notes, Audio Recordings, Chalkboards, Chrono-Notes ----------------------------------------------------- These items give story information. Chalkboards and Chrono-Notes can be aged and reverted using the TMD. The state of Chalkboards and Chrono-Notes carry over on subsequent games. It's probably a good idea to always age Chalkboards and Chrono-Notes after finding them. Use the TMD to restore broken Audio Recordings. ------------------------------- Storage Tanks and Projectiles -------------------------------- Cryo Tanks are tall, cylindrical tanks that temporarily freeze anyone nearby, including you. Frozen enemies are easily shattered. Use Impulse to break out of a frozen state if you get caught in a Cryo Tank explosion. Propane Tanks are small, roundish explosive tanks that ignite anyone in the area, but don't have enough energy to outright kill anyone when they explode. Sometimes you can find a pair of propane tanks inside rectangular hinged wooden boxes. Explosive Barrels do quite a bit of damage and are a favorite projectile weapon of Zeks. Barrels can be caught and thrown back. Barrels can also be aged and restored using the TMD. An aged barrel is non-explosive and a good way to carry a barrel around with you that you don't want blowing up in your face. Electrical Boxes can be pulled off walls and thrown to electrocute nearby enemies. Throw it far enough away so that you don't get electrocuted, too. ------------------- E99 Infused Items ------------------- E99 Infused crates, liquid tanks, junction boxes, roots, stairs, and catwalks can all be aged and restored using the TMD. E99 crates, referred to as metal crates in this walkthrough, have many uses for getting to otherwise inaccessible areas. They don't quite have the personality of a Companion Cube, but I have to admit I became a wee bit attached to the one at the beginning of the Central Docks mission. (Ha ha, that's a joke. Don't email me about it). Liquid Tanks are always heavier when they are restored. Restore Junction Boxes to open doors and gates or turn on/cut off power. Age and restore roots to make them grow or shrink. Stairs and catwalks can be aged/restored to get to inaccessible areas. ============================================================================== ___ (O) \ | (X) | [1WD-XX] PART ONE: WORKER'S DISTRICT \___/ ============================================================================== KATORGA, SEA OF OKHOSTK USMC RECONNAISSANCE MISSION CODENAME: "SPARTAN" CHECKPOINT 1WD-01/12 [ ] Note x2 [ ] Audio Recording [ ] Projector: Living on Katorga-12 NOTE #01 "The death of Dr. Demichev in the fire..."

The room on the left has some Centurion ammo, +10 E99, a large supply crate, and a !Note. In the bathroom is a !Note and an !Audio Recording. Go down the long hallway and go past the stairs. Take the hallway going to the right. There's a !Note, +100 E99 in the cabinet, and +10 E99 on the desk. Get the items from the large supply crate. You don't need to shoot the padlock off the door as that just goes back into the hallway. Backtrack and go into the cafeteria. Check the small supply crate for a random item. A !Note on the counter explains an experiment taking place in the school. Exit the cafeteria and deal with the Mutant. Go up the stairs. The first classroom has an !Audio Recording and some desks you can search. One of the desks has a !Note. Crouch down to get past the collapsed ceiling into the larger classroom. Watch the spooky Chrono-Echo. There's +100 E99 in the small crate and a !Note on the floor. There's a !Note in one of the desks. Go through the doorway to exit the classroom. In the next room you can watch another film using the Projector. Exit the room and go up the steps. Go down the the end of the hallway to listen to an !Audio Recording.

Devlin sends you off to search for a gate switch. Go to the left and go past the fence. Head all the way down to the truck by the closed gate. The guard post on the left has a !Note inside. There's +10 E99 by the crates on the right. Turn to the right and go down the hole in the grate. Crouch down to get through the duct. Drop down into the room for a Chrono-Echo. An !Audio Recording will give you some insight. Grab the +100 E99 from the shelf. There's a Stimpack on the floor. Climb up the ladder to exit the underground section. Hop over the low wall and go across to the crates. Climb up the boards and crates. There's a Health Pack on the wooden box to the right. Follow the path along the side of the building. Climb up the ladder. There's a large supply crate in the corner with +100 E99 and some health items. Go through the broken railing. *-- The following information was submitted by rui_brochado --* "Next, and I'm sure you don't mention this on your walkthrough, before you hit the gate switch that Devlin orders you to, and after you jump down from the roof with the large supply crate, look to your left. You should see an extremely dark and small shelter made of crates. If you go inside you'll get to listen to a spooky audio recording, plus another note." There's also +30 E99 and a Health Pack in the hidden shelter. Use the switch in the guard post to open the gate. Drop down and join Devlin. Follow Devlin to the sheltered area. Loot the crates for +200 E99, ammo, and health items. Swap out the Volk S4 shotgun for the KASIMOV SNV-E99 !New Weapon SNIPER RIFLE. Snipe the the Mutants on the bridge. Follow Devlin across the bridge. There's nothing on the bridge or outside the Radio Tower. Go through the hole in the garage door.

Check by !Weapon Tech the stairs for a crate with +100 E99 and some supplies. Go up the steps into the Radio Tower. This room is full of ammo, health items, an A9 Valkyrie, and another sniper rifle. Grab Weapon Tech #01 off the shelf. Weapon Locker #01/29 is here that you can use to switch weapons and upgrade a weapon now that you have a Weapon Tech. Use the white squares at the top of the Weapon Locker screen to switch weapons. You can use the Weapon Tech to do one weapon upgrade. You don't need to upgrade a weapon at this point. But, if you're going to upgrade a weapon I would recommend upgrading the damage on the Valkyrie or the clip capacity on the Shotgun. Don't waste any Weapon Tech upgrading the Centurion. The Sniper Rifle really doesn't need to be upgraded until later in the game, if at all. CHECKPOINT 1WD-10/12 Make sure you have the sniper rifle for the next part. The Radio Tower comes under attack. Keep killing the enemy soldiers until Devlin orders a retreat. Follow Devlin downstairs. Yeah, that was supposed to happen. CHECKPOINT 1WD-11/12 Devlin, nooooooooo! CHECKPOINT 1WD-12/12 Run straight ahead into the building. Hold down the left shift to sprint.

He's cleverly used some scrap metal to cover his vulnerable glowing blue patch. That scrap metal needs to be destroyed. Also, there are Health Packs and some ammo on each side of the room. There are two dead soldiers on the opposite side of the room. One of the soldiers has an AR9 Valkyrie and the other has a Volk S4 shotgun. Both weapons are effective against Hulk Zek once he's vulnerable. For the first part of the fight, you want to catch any barrels thrown at you with the TMD by aiming at the barrel and holding the E key. You have to wait for Hulk Zek to throw the barrel before you can catch it. Once you catch the barrel, throw it back to Hulk Zek using Mouse 1. The explosions should blow off the protective piece of scrap metal. Continue to catch and throw. After you throw, try firing at the blue patch. Eventually an enormous parasite flees from the chest of Hulk Zek and burrows into Hulk Zek's back. Kill off the wave of Zeks. Hulk Zek returns, this time with a crude club. Run around and keep away from Hulk Zek. After Hulk Zek smashes the ground, or you, with the club, shoot the blue patch on the right side of Hulk Zek's back. Sprint away when Hulk Zek gets close. Keep circling to your left to stay near Hulk Zek's vulnerable patch on his back. Hulk Zek will get stuck for a couple of seconds after smashing his club. This also drives out the parasite after enough damage is done and the gigantic parasite burrows into Hulk Zek's head. Kill off the Zeks again. Now Hulk Zek uses barrel attacks and club attacks. This time you want to damage the blue patch on Hulk Zek's head. Run away from Hulk Zek when he attacks with his club. Wait for the barrel attacks. Catch the barrel and throw it back. About three barrels is enough to finish off Hulk Zek on Hard. After Hulk Zek is dead, Kathryn, who was listening outside the door for the entire fight, opens the door and calls to you. Thanks for the help, Kathryn. CHECKPOINT 2RF-15/17 Follow Kathryn through the door. Quickly grab the two +200 E99 along with any ammo and Health Packs. Follow Kathryn to the closed gate. Quickly grab the + 100 E99 tech that's in the corner by the tank with the pipe in the corner Fight off the Zeks as she opens the gate. Follow Kathryn through the gate and make sure the Zeks don't kill her. Follow Kathryn and protect her. There are a lot of Zeks. Wait for Kathryn to open another gate by the base of the tower. There's a small supply crate by the second gate by the fence. Try to pick up any items before going through the second gate. CHECKPOINT 2RF-16/17 For the next part you want to use the TMD on the three !Bio Formula junction boxes on the fence to keep the fence electrified. This should kill any Zeks climbing the fence. The junction boxes will continually break down so you have to keep restoring the electrical boxes with the TMD. Let Kathryn kill any Zeks that make it over the fence unless the Zeks are damaging you. There's a +100 E99 by the junction box on the left you want to grab while you're running around. Underneath the metal ramp are a couple of E99 Vials and underneath the stairs by the wooden boxes is a Health Pack. Eventually Barisov gets the elevator working.

Then you just run into the deadlock and use an impulse and you get the achievement." You eventually fall through the floor into the Phase Tick nest. The Phase Ticks rush you and explode. Age one of the Phase Ticks to make the other Phase Ticks attack the aged Phase Tick. You can also use the Deadlock to freeze the Phase Ticks for easy kills. Don't destroy the orange glowing bulbs as this releases Phase Ticks. Use the TMD to make the orange bulbs disappear. Use the wheel to open the door to get out of the chamber. This of course causes more Phase Ticks to rush into the room. Make sure to grab at least the +200 E99 before leaving the nest. Go through the tunnel. Use the TMD on any orange bulbs.

There's a couple of Valkyries and a Shotgun in the room along with an Ammo Crate and a Health Crate. Watch the Chrono-Echo. Afterwards, the Shifty Zek attacks. It is similar to the Zek, but extremely fast. Use the Deadlock to slow it down or use the cryo tanks to try to freeze it. Standing in the middle of a deadlock seems to work well. There's a cheap way of killing the Shifty Zek. In one corner of the room by the steps is a table with a turntable. Jump on top of the turntable and the Shifty Zek won't be able to hit you.

Go to the end of the hallway and look behind the wooden pallets for +300 E99. Go down the other hallway into the elevator. There's an !Audio Recording you can listen to while you move to a lower section. CHECKPOINT 3RL-09/26 [ ] Chrono-Note !Chrono-Note: "Move slowly! The creatures are blind and react to any sound". Forget about sneaking through this part. Get in close and use the shotgun. Reverts have a puke attack so watch out for that. The first Revert is on the right. Beyond it is a +300 E99. There are a couple more Reverts farther along in the hallway along with a +30 E99. At the end of the hallway is a T-intersection. To the right is a Revert and +60 E99. To the left are a couple of Reverts and a Tripwire. Just past the Tripwire is another +120 E99. Fight past the last couple of Reverts and grab the +300 in E99 in the passage (+200 E99 to the left and +100 E99 to the right). Use the TMD to age the root on the left side of the passage to move the two pipes out of the way. Revert the root so you can move past it. Hop over the jammed gate. CHECKPOINT 3RL-10/26 Go through the doorway and go straight. Hop up into the pipe and crawl to the next area. Go straight across and crouch down to get into a room. There's +500 in E99 and some Stimpacks. Exit the room. Look down into the pit and age the root at the bottom. The root has a handy platform attached to it. Hop across to the other doorway. The next tunnel is full of Reverts. It is also full of water. Use the TMD to restore the broken junction box on the left wall to electrocute all the Reverts. About halfway down the water filled tunnel is a +20 E99 on the right. Hop up into the pipe at the end. There are a couple of Phase Ticks and a +20 E99 in the pipe. *-- Hidden healthpack location sent in by kaixa4279 --* "Also,in chapter 3 checkpoint 10/26 where you use the box on the wall to kill the reverts in the water and then jump into the tunnel with the ticks, there is a hidden healthpack in the tunnel. If you go to the dead end in the tunnel that leads up, turn around when you get to the point where you can go no further and look up. Scan the wall right in front of you and you will eventually see the pop up to click X and pick it up. I realize that you are using the PC version of the game so it may not be the same, but i hope this at least helps out." Drop down into the next tunnel. CHECKPOINT 3RL-11/26 [ ] Audio Recording AUDIO #27: Our numbers are dwindling quickly TMD the orange Phase Tick bulbs. Go through the gross !Weapon Tech tunnel and climb up the short ladder. There's a group of Reverts in the next tunnel. Grab the +340 E99 at the end of the tunnel. Use the TMD on the root so it opens up the gate. Age the metal crate and pull it through the gap. Restore the metal crate so you can get into the pipe. Grab Weapon Tech #09 as you go through the pipe. Listen to the !Audio Recording. Pull the metal crate back through the gate and use it to jack up the door. Deal with the Tripwires and Phase Tick bulbs in passageway. Grab the metal crate and use it to get over the gate. Drop down into the next tunnel. CHECKPOINT 3RL-12/26 [ ] Chrono-Note Use the TMD on the orange bulbs. !Chrono-Note: "Find the train and get to the docks. You're running out of time". Look opposite the Chrono-Note for +60 E99. Go down the hallway and TMD the root to get access to a large supply crate. Reverts ahead! Kill them and continue. Go into the room on the left for a Stimpack, +100 E99, an Ammo Box, and a Health Crate with two Health Packs. Restore the corroded junction box by the door on the right. Inside that room is +130 E99 and another Ammo Box. Move down the hallway towards the TMD upgrade machine. Ignore the machine for right now. Restore the junction panel to electrocute the Reverts in the tunnel to the left. Go down the tunnel. There's another group of Reverts at the other end. Go into the room for +300 E99 and a large supply crate. Now go back to the machine and get the next TMD Upgrade. !TMD Upgrade The new center plate with the ring of small lights gives you the Reversion ability. Press Q to start to age a soldier then press Q again to turn the aging soldier into a Revert. Don't press Q twice quickly per the on-screen instructions. You have to age a soldier before you can revert. Aging takes up half of the starting TMD Energy Bar and Reversion takes up the other half. You have to have a full bar of TMD energy before you can revert a soldier. Go through the door past the TMD Upgrade machine. The next room has a lot of soldiers and a lot of catwalks. Simply fight your way to the top. Watch out for snipers. On each level of the catwalk there is either an alcove or a doorway to a side passage at each corner. The side passages are slanted with a door at the lower end and an open doorway at the upper end. You have to TMD a junction box to open the door at the lower end. There's plenty of health items and ammo. If you have some E99 Vials, you can try to get some Revert Bomber kills in this section. Near the top is the second side passage that doesn't have a window with a Health Pack inside. Across from the upper doorway is an alcove with sandbags nearby. Crouch down and go into that alcove for a +200 E99. *-- Here is rui_brochado's description of the same area --* "In the room where you have to go up the catwalks while killing lots of bad guys, you can use two sideways along the path, as long as you restore the junction boxes next to the closed doors (I only noticed this on my 2nd playthrough). On one of the alcoves there's +200 E99 next to the wall that you can't see from the outside. It is the alcove right in front of the upper exit of the 2nd sideway." CHECKPOINT 3RL-13/26 Get to the very top and shoot the padlock off the door to get out of the room. Loot the Health Crate, supply locker, and Ammo Crate. Go up the ladder. You meet up with Kathryn. CHECKPOINT 3RL-14/26 [ ] Audio Recording AUDIO #28: Demichev and his experiments Kill the soldier in the hallway. Follow Kathryn to the !New Weapon corner. Take the AUTOCANNON. It should come in handy. Continue down the hallway. Duck into the side hallway on the right for an E99 Vial. Help Kathryn get into the vent over the door. She opens the door into a garage. TMD the stairs so you can get into the room at the top. Look on the left side of the barricade for an !Audio Recording and +300 E99. Check by the filing cabinet in the corner for +100 E99. On the other side of the barricade is a door leading to another room. In the room is Augmentor #04/18 and Weapon Locker #08/29. Invest in the Heartiness upgrade or the Medic upgrade. Upgrade the damage on the Autocannon. Climb up on the boxes to exit the room through the duct hole. CHECKPOINT 3RL-15/26 You're on a catwalk overlooking the rail line. There's a couple packs of sniper ammo and Health Pack on the catwalk. Keep the Autocannon and swap out your other weapon for the sniper rifle (if you don't already have the sniper rifle equipped). Turn around and use the TMD on the large root that's blocking the garage door. This let's Kathryn out of the garage. You come under attack from a lot of soldiers. There are also some armored soldiers with autocannons, the Elite Spetsnaz. The Elite Spetsnaz soak up a lot of damage before dying. Watch out for the one soldier that comes out on the catwalk after the first two Elite Spetsnaz shows up. Kill all the enemies. Ditch the sniper rifle and pick up the Valkyrie that gets dropped by the soldier on the catwalk. Go through the door and drop down to the ground. CHECKPOINT 3RL-16/26 [ ] Chalkboard [ ] Chrono-Note Chalkboard #09: Katorga 12 Schedule Inside the bottom room is another Autocannon, a !Chalkboard, and +270 E99.

Use the elevator. No Time to Bleed ------------------ Kill the three soldiers by the desks (23/15) CHECKPOINT 3RL-20/26 [ ] Chrono-Note Quickly loot the supplies from the Ammo Crate and Health Crate. Continue to chase after Kathryn into a generator room. There are two Elite Spetsnaz, a couple of regular soldiers, and another Elite on the balcony. Crouch down by the wooden box on the left just as you enter the room and aim above the top of the box to kill the first Elite. Wait behind the box and kill the second Elite. Go around the generator and kill the two soldiers. Stay behind some cover and kill the third Elite on the balcony. A final soldier kicks open the door under the balcony. Check in the right corner by the door for +400 E99 and a large supply crate. Go to the left corner by the door and look behind the generators for +600 E99. Go through the door to exit the generator room. Go up the stairs. There's a !Chrono-Note that reads, "Do not trust the girl". Go up the stairs and go into the next room.

Sometimes you can find the Blueprint for !Bio Formula the Energized TMD Equipment in this room. Kill the !Bio Formula soldiers in the room and the one in the hallway. Get to the other end of the hallway. There's a Valkyrie on a wooden box in the hallway. Kick open the doors. Quickly kill the two soldiers before they kill Kathryn. Untie Kathryn. Exit the room. Go into the room to the left. There's an !Audio Recording and two Bio Formulas. One is the Defensive Hero Upgrade and the other is for either the Forge Hero Upgrade or the Armor Hero Upgrade. Exit the building. CHECKPOINT 3RL-22/26 Follow Kathryn to the ground level. CHECKPOINT 3RL-23/26 Get the +300 E99 from the large supply crate. Exit the building. There's a Seeker, Seeker ammo, and a Health kit on the wooden crates across from the exit. Nothing happens until you help Kathryn, so you can explore the area. Use the TMD to age the concrete barriers so those can't be used by enemies. Grab the Seeker. Boost Kathryn onto the TMD Amplifier platform. A helicopter flies over and drops off some soldiers. Three of the soldiers have shields. Two rocket launcher soldiers appear above you to the left and right. You can catch rockets and redirect them. After Kathryn is finished fixing the Amplifier climb up onto the platform with Kathryn's help. CHECKPOINT 3RL-24/26 Stand in the middle of the amplifier platform. Keep the crosshairs on the glowing white ball of chrono-energy. This restores the engine and you take off towards the docks. CHECKPOINT 3RL-25/26 - BOSS FIGHT Get the +300 E99 from the large supply crate. Use Weapon Locker #09/29 to pick your weapons. I would recommend the Valkyrie or the Autocannon. If you want to use the Valkyrie, upgrade the damage. Upgrade the clip size for the Autocannon. There's plenty of ammo and Health Packs laying around. You should be at full ammo and have the maximum amount of Health Packs by the time you get to the other end of the train car. Move forward to the next rail car. Boss fight time. There is a Health Pack at either end of the train car. The Health Pack by the Ammo Box respawns as does the Ammo Box. Stay on the left side of the train car to avoid the dragging claw attack. Dodge from left to right to avoid the stabbing claw attacks. Whenever you see the orange inside of the monster's mouth you want to shoot it in the mouth before the monster can do a bite attack. When the monster crawls under the tracks start moving around to avoid getting attacked when the monster pops up on the sides of the train car. Loot the ammo and Health Packs when the monster is under the train car. Destroy the orange sacs that appear on the monster's body. First, destroy the four orange bulbs on the monster's underside. Next, destroy one of the orange bulbs that appears on the side of the monster's head. Three more bulbs appear on the torso and the elbows. The elbow bulbs can be a little tricky. Finally, destroy the orange bulb that appears on its head. Destroying the second head bulb knocks the monster off the tracks temporarily. CHECKPOINT 3RL-26/26 - BOSS FIGHT Hop onto the next train car. Deal with the Phase Ticks. There might be a Health Pack you can grab before going into the next train car. Get through the Phase Tick infested train car. Age a Phase Tick, use Pulse and sprint through, or fire off a deadlock and impulse the rest. The monster rips the roof off the next train car. Shoot the monster in its orange mouth to knock it off the rails. Use the TMD to release the cable holding the pipes onto the flatbed and run across the flatbed and past the crates to the Amplifier platform. Get between the pillars. You automatically turn around. A white sphere of chrono-energy appears around the monster's head. Keep the cursor on the sphere as the monster moves around. You'll see a white ribbon of energy between the TMD and monster's head when you're aiming correctly. This eventually knocks the monster off the tracks for good. ============================================================================== ___ (O) \ | (X) | [4CD-XX] PART FOUR: CENTRAL DOCKS \___/ ============================================================================== CHECKPOINT 4CD-01/13 [ ] Chalkboard [ ] Chrono-Note Chalkboard #10: Map of Katorga 12 with cargo arrivals CENTRAL DOCKS, KATORGA-12 OCTOBER 26th, 2010 Exit the engine.

Pick up the metal crate and go around to the side of the train with Augmentor #05/18. Go towards the back of the train. Pick up the E99 Vial. Use the metal crate to hop onto the smaller box in the corner by the rear of the engine. Put the metal crate on top of the box you're standing on. Jump up on the metal crate and jump across to the top of the shipping containers. Open the small crate for a random item. Use the metal crate to get past the garage door. Fight !Bio Formula the Phase Ticks. Grab the +600 E99 from the crate. Go through the gate and check out the corner for the !Chrono-Note "Barisov has it wrong". The gate closes behind you. Pull the metal crate that's out-of-phase into phase. Pick up the random item at the corner. Use the metal crate on top of the wooden boxes to jump over the fence. Pick up the +300 E99 and the Health Pack. Make your way past the Tripwires. At the top of the stairs look to the left for the Bio Formula (Hero Upgrade: TMD Ammo). Crouch to get under the gate. The gate slams shut behind you. CHECKPOINT 4CD-02/13 [ ] Chrono-Note x2 Pick up the +200 E99 by Weapon Locker #10/29. A !Chrono-Note by the locker tells you that "She's going to die". TMD the junction box to open the gate. Follow the catwalk to the shipping container. Another !Chrono-Note says, "It's still not fixed". There's a Seeker, a couple of Health Packs, and some random items in the shipping container. Pick up everything you can. Exit the shipping container and you get hit by a Chrono-Wave. CHECKPOINT 4CD-03/13 CENTRAL DOCKS, KATORGA-12 NOVEMBER 7th, 1955 You are standing on the 1955 docks. The soldiers on !Weapon Tech guard duty won't notice you until you start making some noise. There's an initial group of three guards in front of you. Start taking them out. This draws out one guard from inside the building and another group of guards farther down the dock. Two of those guards have shields. You can age the hook holding the pallet of explosive barrels. You can destroy the rectangular wooden boxes with the hinges to get access to a pair of propane tanks. Move along the right edge of the dock and look for a couple of random items by the crane pillar closest to the TMD Amplification platform. *-- rui_brochado adds: --* "When you go back to 1955, you found +100 E99 next to the 3rd crane pillar. I've also found +200 E99 next to the 2nd one." Go up the stairs into the building. There's Augmentor #06/18 and a storage room with two Health Packs, +200 E99, and a Seeker. There's a Stimpack in the secured locker. Destroy the padlock and climb up the ladder for Weapon Tech #11 and a random item behind the hatch. There seems to be a combination of factors that triggers a Chrono-Wave that takes you back to 2010. To try to maximize your time in 1955 in order to loot items, don't drop the overhead shipping container and try to leave one enemy alive. Assume that going near the TMD Amplification platform starts the timer. There are some items you can get before going back. Go all the way to the fence that's under the catwalk. Go down the steps to the right by the forklift and loot the large supply crate. To the left is a room with a Health Pack and a random item. Go back outside and wait for the Chrono-Wave.

Go across to the room on the other side of the docks. There's a !Note, Health Pack, and two Ammo Boxes on the shelves. Before going down the ladder, look to the right for a TMD Blueprint. This one is for the Tech Savvy TMD Equipment. Another !Chrono-Note reads, "Don't Trust Me". Climb down the ladder into a submerged section. Swim !Weapon Tech past the Tripwires. Turn the wheel that's to the left when you get to the room. This drains the area of water. Use the TMD to first pull the power cell into phase, restore the power cell, then pick up the power cell and insert it in the sparking socket on the right side of the machine. Exit the room. Check the overturned bookshelf in the hallway for Weapon Tech #12. CHECKPOINT 4CD-05/13 Go back to the surface. Check the box by the steps !Blueprint going down next to the catwalk for a TMD Blueprint for the Wrapper TMD Equipment plans. If you already found the Wrapper blueprint, you won't find anything on the wooden box. Go down the steps and look between the wall and the box for a random item. If you hop up on the catwalk to the right, you can reach Augmentor #07/18. Now is a good time to purchase the Iron Lung Hero Perk if you haven't purchased it already. Use the control on the Amplifier platform to raise the Pearl. Move down the docks on the side closest to the Pearl. After you go past the Augmentor and before you go past the next crane pillar, look to the right. Sometimes there is an E99 tech inside a shipping container you can pull towards you with the TMD. Check around the wooden box past the pillar for a Health Pack. At the very end of the dock is a small supply crate. Go back and age the large hook that's holding the boarding ramp out of reach. Go up the ramp to get on the Pearl. CHECKPOINT 4CD-06/13 Move onto the deck of the ship and start making your way around the shipping containers.

Release Mouse 2 to detonate the grenade and blow open the door. Inside the room is Weapon Tech #13 and a !Note. The !Chrono-Note on the wall reads, "Mother my brain hurts!". NOTE: This Weapon Tech looks yellow or gold because of the light on wall next it. There is nothing special about it. *-- Spoiler info sent in by Scorpion451 --* "The "Mother my brain hurts" segment is an in-game tribute to the Metroid series, from which Singularity draws some inspiration. For example, E99 resembles Phazon in many aspects...hmmm...Crossover anyone?(jk) The sequence with the dethrex rollermine to access the chamber with the notes could be taken straight out of one of the "Prime" trilogy of the metroid series. If you haven't played any games in the Metroid series, the main character Samus is able to curl her suit into a ball which can be controled exactly in the manner the rollermine is; and the games feature numerous sidescroller/pinball style mazes like the one used in this room. The creature in the tank is also virtually identical to one of the forms of metroid introduced in the Prime trilogy. Also, the description in the note on the couch is exactly the method of feeding decribed by the metroid series for the metroids. Finally the chrononote itself is one last reference to Metroid, the "Mother Brain" being one of the quintissential bosses of the Metroid series. I personally found this tribute by a group of game developers to a game series which so greatly infuences their own to be both humorous and a bit touching." *-- End spoiler info --* Go back to the main room. There's a !Note, +200 E99, a Health Pack, and Weapon Locker #11/29. Crawl through the ductwork. Grab the +200 E99 from the small crate and TMD the junction box.

When you run out of rockets, each spare rocket in the locker is worth 3 rockets and the spare RLS-7 rocket launcher at the top of the stairs is worth 7 rockets. You get a couple extra rockets if you have Search and Destroy equipped. I like to use the Rocket Launcher until I have just 10 rockets left. When you're done playing with the rocket launcher, get on the Rail Car platform and use the control to take a really slow ride alongside the bridge. Some of the soldiers or Radions may start attacking the platform. You can kill them or ignore them. Crouch down to stay mostly in coverage. Stay on the side furthest from the bridge to avoid the majority of damage from projectiles and gunfire. If the wooden side of the platform gets broken, you can restore the wooden boards with the TMD.

After all the soldiers are dead go back to the room where you left Barisov. CHECKPOINT 6SL-11/18 You pick up some TMD Upgrades with all the E99 Tech you're carrying around. Go through the huge round door. CHECKPOINT 6SL-12/18 Head towards the spinning reactor. This is the Singularity. A Chrono-Wave takes you back to 1955. Kill the soldiers to return to 2010. Go into the hallway on the other side. Use Chrono Ping if you got disoriented. CHECKPOINT 6SL-13/18 [ ] Chrono-Note Grab the E99 Tech and a Health Pack. Head into the !Weapon Tech large room and kill the soldiers. Watch out for the RLS-7 rocket launcher Elite on the balcony and the Autocannon Elite Spetsnaz hiding behind the stack of boxes below the catwalk. There is a group of five soldiers plus three more soldiers by the staircase on the right side of the room. This is a good place to get rocket kills. In the room are the usual goodies. Check by the consoles for Weapon Tech #29, a Stimpack, +400 E99, and an Ammo Box. There's another +200 E99 on the left side of the room behind the large box. Look by the boxes near the catwalk for +300 E99 and an E99 Vial. Go down the steps for a Health Pack, a Stimpack, an Ammo Crate, and +300 E99. Sometimes you can pick up a RLS-7 Rocket Launcher from the dead Elite on the catwalk. Weapon Locker #29/29 is available so use the last Weapon Tech. At the bottom of the stairs are two more Health Packs and a +100 E99. Head up the stairs and kill the soldier at the top if he's still alive. A Chrono-Note asks you, "What if this is supposed to happen". Go through the door at the top of the stairs and head towards the Singularity. CHECKPOINT 6SL-14/18 Kill the 1955 soldiers around the Singularity during the Chrono-Wave. Head into the next hallway that goes to the left. CHECKPOINT 6SL-15/18 Go down the hallway. There's a Health Pack on one of the boxes in the hallway. There's an Elite sniper on the balcony and a pair of soldiers in the room. Head towards the stairs on the left to kill the rest of the soldiers including an Elite Autocannon Spetsnaz. Also, there's one regular soldier on the balcony to the right of the stairs. Hop on the boxes by the stairs on the left side of the room to grab a +200 E99. You can find a large supply crate and +200 E99 on the right side of the room. Approach the railing under the catwalk for a Stimpack and a +200 E99 tucked away on the left. Go down the steps. The lower area has a supply locker on the right. On the left is a Health pack and +300 E99. There's an Ammo Crate by Augmentor #18/18. This is your last opportunity to purchase TMD Equipment and Perks. Go back to the stairs and go up. There's a Stimpack at the top of the stairs on the left. Go through the door into another hallway. CHECKPOINT 6SL-16/18 Kill the soldiers and Zeks. Go around the Singularity into the hallway. CHECKPOINT 6SL-17/18 Kill the Zeks. Go up the stairs. There's a 1955 style Health Pack. Go through the door. CHECKPOINT 6SL-18/18 - ENDGAME Go down the hallway. There's Barisov! After he gives you your instructions approach the Singularity. Aim for the middle of the broken ring. Use the TMD to open a Time Rift to go back to... SINGULARITY LABS, KATORGA-12 NOVEMBER 12th, 1955 There's someone in the chamber! Approach the Singularity and place the E99 bomb in the cradle. Ummm...how do we get away from the bomb? The bomb explodes literally in your face and... SINGULARITY LABS, KATORGA-12 OCTOBER 27th, 2010 The Singularity is still active! It does show the E99 bomb damage. And there's Demichev! Shoot Demichev before he shoots you. Listen to the endgame recap. Whoa. Now you have three choices and three possible endings. THE GOOD: Stop the Anomaly ---------------------------- Use the TMD on the Singularity to travel back to 1955 and correct the Anomaly. This means you have to kill yourself before you save Demichev in 1955. Whoa. THE BAD: Kill Dr. Barisov --------------------------- Shoot Barisov and join Demichev. THE UGLY: Kill Demichev and Barisov ------------------------------------- Shoot Demichev and Barisov to take over the world. Mwahahahaha. Shoot Demichev first so you don't accidently get THE BAD ending. If you don't do anything, Demichev kills both Barisov and you. Game Over. Demichev killing you is not really an ending. You can shoot Demichev and leave Dr. Barisov alive, but the only ending is THE GOOD ending. You still have to go back to 1955 and shoot yourself. If you go back to 1955 and don't shoot yourself or try to shoot Demichev, you just end up in a time loop until you shoot yourself. You can kill Barisov and use the TMD on the Singularity to get THE GOOD ending. After the credits is a bonus scene that I won't spoil for you. Whoa. You can continue the game at this point and try the other endings. You restart at checkpoint 6SL-18. If you start a new game, check out what happens in the hallway at checkpoint 1WD-02. The man that yells out, "Renko, stop! Don't let Demichev live!" is a version of you that is killed by collapsing debris. This is the exact same way it plays out originally and doesn't change by finishing the game, but it has some added meaning after learning about the Anomaly. I had to go back and see for myself. ============================================================================== ___ (O) \ | (X) | LEGAL STUFF \___/ ============================================================================== All trademarks and copyrights contained in this document are owned by their respective trademark and copyright holders.
