03.......Version History
===============================================================================

Version 1.00: The first and complete version of the guide. I will only update
the guide if any vital information is missing, I've made a major error, or
a reader contributes something worthy. (September 26th, 2006) [66KB]

Version 1.01: Corrected some minor errors. (September 28th, 2006) [67KB]

Version (Final): I feel that I've covered the majority of things in the game.
Seeing as Max Payne is a relatively old game, I wouldn't expect many
contributions, so I've decided that this is the final version. I do not intend
to ever update this FAQ. I've also removed my contact information. I don't see
the point in keeping it here as I can't tell you anything the guide doesn't.
I hope you enjoyed reading this walkthrough. (September 29th, 2006) [67KB]

04.......Story
===============================================================================

Max Payne started out as a cop for the NYPD. After turning down an offer to 
join the DEA, Max comes home to find his wife and baby daughter murdered. He
kills the perpetrators; three junkies high on the designer drug Valkyr.

Three years after the death of his family, Max is an undercover agent for the
DEA. He is undercover to infiltrate the mob, who are distributing Valkyr
throughout the city. Max's quest for revenge takes him down to the dark depths
of hell, where he must confront the people responsible for the nightmare that
is Valkyr.

06.......Bullet Time/Shootdodge
===============================================================================

If Max is encountered by numerous, heavily armed enemies, he can activate 
bullet time, which will slow the action around him, but still allow him to aim
his weapon(s) in real time. The more enemies Max takes out, the more bullet 
time he will gain.

By activating shootdodge, Max will fly to the side, in any direction you
want him to.


===============================================================================
07.......Weapons/Items
===============================================================================

There are a plethora of weapons available throughout the game. Some weapons are
useful when encountered by a few enemies, whereas others are more useful when
up against tougher, better equipped enemies. Here are the different weapons
available and some information on them...

----------
Lead Pipe
----------
Useful for smashing open crates and boxes containing painkillers and ammo.
Not as good as the baseball bat when in combat.

-------------
Baseball Bat
-------------
This weapon is only useful when enemies are extremely close to you. It is 
useful for smashing open crates and boxes, which contain ammo or painkillers.
It is only useful in combat when up against un-armed and weak enemies.

--------
Beretta
--------
The basic handgun that is used by most enemies, but usually the weaker ones.
It is an accurate weapon that has a big chamber. There is plenty of ammo
available for this gun. Only useful when encountered by a small number of
weak enemies.

--------------
Dual Berettas
--------------
Fantastic! Two berettas can be lethal, especially in firefights with large
groups of enemies. They are useful when used in bullet time.

-------
Ingram
-------
A sub-machine gun reminiscent of the Uzi. This weapon isn't too accurate
from range and there isn't much ammo available for it early on. It is most
effective when encountered by one or two enemies.

-------------
Dual Ingrams
-------------
Deadly. If Max has two Ingrams, he can take down a large number of strong
enemies in a matter of seconds. Especially useful in bullet time.

-------------
Desert Eagle
-------------
There isn't a lot of ammo available for this extremely powerful handgun. I'd
advise you to use this weapon against enemies close by. It isn't useful from
range.

--------------------
Pump-Action Shotgun
--------------------
An extremely powerful weapon when used against enemies close to your current
position. Not useful at all over medium to long range.

------------------
Sawed-Off Shotgun
------------------
Holds two shells in the chamber. Is only useful against one enemy, because if
used when surrounded by a plethora of enemies, you'll be in serious trouble,
as you'd have to constantly reload the weapon. The pump-action is more 
effective.

-----------
Jackhammer
-----------
THE most powerful shotgun in the game. It carries a large number of bullets
and isn't too bad from medium range. One or two shots of this is deadly.
Useful in bullet time.

-------------
Sniper Rifle
-------------
If an enemy is at an extremely long distance, or you simply want to take
down an enemy without being noticed immediately, this is the weapon to use.
Use bullet time and crouch to get a steady shot.

--------------
Colt Commando
--------------
Powerful assault rifle used by the most powerful enemies in the game. It
is decent from long-medium range and deadly from close range. In my view,
it is the most powerful and effective weapon in the game.

----
M79
----
A grenade launcher. Use this weapon when enemies are coming at you with
heavy weapons. Don't stand too close or Max will be seriously injured.
Can be useful in bullet time.

---------
Grenades
---------
Useful for taking down enemies that are hiding behind corners or are using
cover. Don't stand too close.

------------------
Molotov Cocktails
------------------
A bottle filled with flammable liquid. When thrown, a ring of fire will
erupt around the area and direction it was thrown in. Useful but inaccurate.
The Grenades are much more effective.

------------
Painkillers
------------
Can be collected throughout various parts of the game. If Max's health is
low, he can take a painkiller, which will increase his health. It is 
useful to have a large amount of painkillers when confronted by a lot of
enemies.

***************************
Difficulty Level: Fugitive
***************************

===============================================================================
09A.......Part I: The American Dream
===============================================================================
New Jersey. Three Years Ago. 

Walk forward and examine the 'V' sign on the wall. After the cutscene, walk
over to the phone and answer it. There is a door near the plant pot. Take out
the shotgun inside and equip it. Make your way upstairs and into the bathroom.
The door is jammed, so walk back outside and walk towards the door ahead. An
armed junkie will attempt to shoot you, so take him down with your shotgun.
Walk into the babies room and take down the approaching junkie. Equip your 
dual Berettas, activate bullet time, and take down the mobster as soon as
you enter the bedroom.

----------------------
Roscoe Street Station
----------------------
Make your way to the door entitled 'Personnel Only'. You will see a dead
transit policeman and Max will equip his Beretta. Open all of the lockers,
taking the available ammo and painkillers. Walk back to the platform and
immediately shootdodge. After killing the two mobsters by the tracks, take the
Desert Eagle.

Now, make your way through the recently opened gates. Walk to the top of the
steps. Use your dual Berettas and shoot dodge, killing the two mobsters.
Take their weapons and get your Desert Eagle ready. Walk down the end of the
hall and immediately take out the thug on the left.

Walk all the way down the steps and you'll be back on the platform. To the
far left is a mobster with a shotgun. Kill him and take his weapon.

If you try to activate the security door, you'll be told that you need a code.
Walk all the way down the steps and stop the instant you hear voices. Activate
bullet time and take down the three mobsters with your dual Berettas. Watch out
for the thug with the shotgun. Enter the door at the far end and immediately
kill the man with the shotgun, before he takes down the transit police officer.
Take the available pain killers and ammo, which you'll find in the lockers.

When you're fully equipped and ready for battle, the man will lead you
upstairs. After opening the door for you, he'll be blasted with a shotgun.
Get your Berettas ready, activate bullet time, and shootdodge your way through
the control room. Collect all weapons and ammo, before heading to the door on
the far right. Press 'Line 2', take the painkillers from the cabinet, and
examine the screen displaying the train. Walk back to the platform and enter
the train from the back. Press the wheel.

-------------------------
So Much For Being Subtle
-------------------------
Exit the train, equip your weapons, and take down the three armed mobsters.
Walk through the door to your left.

================================
Chapter 2: One Way or the Other
================================
Take your first left and then shootdodge. Take down the two mobsters having a
conversation. As you open the door, kill the mobster to your left, with the
Pump-Action Shotgun. The mobster at the end of the steps also has a shotgun,
so take him out when he doesn't expect it. There are three mobsters standing
by the crate of boxes. Kill them. Smash open the boxes with your lead pipe and
take the contents. Walk all the way up.

--------------------------
Live from the Crime Scene
--------------------------
Stay crouched on the steps and listen to the two guys having a conversation.
One mobster will kill the other. Walk to the top and kill him, taking his
Sawed-off Shotgun. Smash open the crates and take the contents. Examine the
steel door at the end of the room. Walk to the bottom of the steps and
shootdodge your way past the two mob guys.

You will now need to equip both Berettas. Head through the gap in the wall.
Use bullet time to take down the heavily armed mobsters in the vault. After
opening the door, take down the four mobsters planted around the area. Be 
careful that the man standing in front of the door, armed with a shotgun,
doesn't take you down instantly.

Walk over to the big desk and pick up the phone. After you've done this, you
can take the painkillers if you need them. Open Vault A and take the
explosives. Go to Vault C and look at the piece of paper. Exit the room through
Vault B.

Be very careful at this point now, especially if you're low on health. As you
approach the stairs, activate bullet time and immediately kill the thugs behind
the bench. If you don't kill them quickly, one of them could hit you with a
Grenade. If he does throw it, make sure you aren't too close. After killing
them, walk through the door that's in front of you.

-----------------
Stepping on Toes
-----------------
After the cutscene, a group of armed men will approach you from the side. Take
them out. Keep walking and you'll hear sirens. Stay where you are and get 
ready for the mobsters. After firing your weapon, three of them will come
running to you. After killing them, take out the mobster at the top.
Take the painkillers from the cabinet and press the button saying 'EXIT GATE
CONTROL'. Walk through the gates and around the corner.

=============================
Chapter 3: Playing It Bogart
=============================
Activate bullet time and choose your desired weapon (the Desert Eagle should do
the trick). The Finito's aren't hard to defeat. Don't get too close to them
because they're carrying powerful weapons. After you've killed them, examine
the note on the table. There are some painkillers in the safe. 

After you've examined the letter, you'll hear guards knocking on the door.
They'll bust the door down and come charging at you, so take them down with a
powerful weapon. After you've killed them, go downstairs, turn left, and take
the painkillers in the cabinet. Near the front of the hotel, you'll be able to
listen to the radio. Smash open the windows with your lead pipe and exit the
hotel.

You'll come to a door at the far end. Once the mobster has finished talking,
take him down with your shotgun. Equip your dual Berettas and shoot the gas
pipes. This will enable you to take down the two remaining thugs. Exit through
the door on the far right.

----------------
Without Warning
----------------
Walk downstairs, turn left, and bust down the door in front of you. On the door
to your left, there's a mobster sitting on a chair. Kill him before he gets the
shotgun from the cupboard. Take a left at the end of the hall and enter '302'.
Get the painkiller inside the drawer. Kill the mobster who is sat down,
watching the television. Two mobsters will come running at you from the far end
of the hall. Activate shootdodge to take them out. There are some painkillers
available in the bathroom to your right. Once you've got them, go through the
exit door. Jump to the side to avoid the shotgun wielding thug. Take out the
other remaining guard. Smash open the padlocked door with your lead pipe.

Once you come to the door at the far end of the room, you'll see two wiseguys
talking about the vending machine. Kill them with your Pump-Action Shotgun.
Kill the remaining two mobsters. Examine the rooms close by, looking for any
useful items. Make your way through the opened door.

---------------------------
A Few Hundred Bullets Back
---------------------------
There is a massive shelf to your left. Take the ammo for your weapons. Enter
the door to your right, turn right, go into bullet time, and take down the
four armed guards. Turn left and enter Muerte's room on the right. Jump to
the side as quickly as possible. As soon as you open the door, a shotgun will
fire at you. Go into the room, take a look at the letter, and collect any
ammo and items. Exit his room, walk to the end of the hall, and you'll come
to a door on your right. Smash it up with your pipe. Smash the windows, walk
onto the ledge and turn right. Smash the wall down and enter the room. Collect
all items, before going back to the previous room. Walk into the main hall and
enter the previously unlocked door, killing the mobsters in your path. Shoot
the boiler.

After you've dropped down the hole, you'll be confronted by three mobsters.
Kill them and take their weapons. Walk down the hall and take your first right.
Examine all pieces of information, collect any items, and then enter the secret
doors. Walk through the door, take your first left, and get your weapons
equipped. There are three mobsters to your left. Kill them all. Enter the
elevator.

===================================
Chapter 4: Caught in the Crossfire
===================================
Once the elevator stops, take a quick left and shootdodge. After killing the
three mobsters near the table, smash open the boxes on the shelves. As soon
as you enter the door nearby, two mobsters will come running out of the door at
the far end. Shoot the gas tanks, which will explode in front of them,
hopefully taking them down. Smash open all of the boxes in the room, taking
every item you can hold in your inventory. Destroy the crates blocking the
door, equip your sawed-off, and immediately take down the thug to your left.
Make sure he doesn't blast you with his shotgun. Pick up the newspaper and
examine it. Enter the door and kill the mobsters in the kitchen. There will be
a mobster waiting for you on the steps. Before entering the only available
door, kill him with your Desert Eagle.

-----------------------------
Rico Muerte Big Time Hustler
-----------------------------
Enter the doors to your left and shootdodge. After killing all four mobsters
and breaking up the V deal, collect the contents from the cupboards, and pick
up the key on the table. Walk to the end of the room, enter the bathroom, and
collect the four available painkillers. Enter the bar door.

As soon as the action starts, jump to the left and use the wall as cover. Kill
the three mobsters that approach you. Kill Dawn with your Desert Eagle and
collect the painkillers and ammo. Open the door and immediately take down
Muerte with your Sawed-Off Shotgun. Pick up the Ingram and walk through the
door.

----------------------------
The Blood Veins of New York
----------------------------
Kill the mobsters and enter the reception door. Take a look at the switchboard.
Go upstairs and kill the mobsters in the final room. Walk outside and stand on
the glass. Equip your Berettas, shoot the glass, activate bullet time, and take
down the mobsters. They'll come at you from your left and from the exit door.
Walk into reception, click the exit button, and leave the hotel through the
main doors.

==================================
Chapter 5: The Man Riding Shotgun
==================================
Enter the pawn shop and kill the two mobsters. Walk past the liquor store and
have a look at the newspaper headlines. Walk through the door and shootdodge
your way past the three mobsters. Enter the room and turn left, walking all
the way down the hall.

------------------------
Something More Sinister
------------------------
Shoot the tanks to your left and move out of the way. They'll bust the door
open for you. If any mobsters survived from the blast, they'll approach you.
Once you've took care of them, turn right at the end. Kill the mobsters that
enter through the far door. Go upstairs, killing the mobster that comes running
at you with an Ingram. Answer the payphone. Enter the large room and kill the
two mobsters. You'll hear a number of explosions go off. Enter the door to your
right and bust it down with your bat. Look at the letter, take the key from the
shelf, and collect the painkillers and shotgun ammo. Enter the door at the far
end.

---------------------------
Let the Gun Do the Talking
---------------------------
Walk up the steps and quickly run back down again. A running mobster will throw
a grenade your way. Go upstairs and kill him. If he has any Grenades left, make
sure that you take them, as they'll come in handy later on. Kill the mobster
with the Sawed-Off Shotgun, who is hiding near the bathroom. Shootdodge to your
left and take out the mobster with the Ingrams. Walk towards the mobster and an
explosion will detonate, creating numerous gaps in the floor.

Once the explosions are over, jump over the gap in the floor. Activate bullet
time and take down the three armed mobsters in the single room. A mobster will
come at you from the bedroom. After killing him and collecting all items in the
room, make your exit through the window.

===============================
Chapter 6: The Alternate Route
===============================
Make your way down the stairwell and jump on the cart below. There are two
junkies to your right. Kill them if provoked or if you desperately need Beretta
ammo.

Now, walk to the door on the far right and enter it. If you attempt to enter
Luigi's laundry, the mobsters will disregard you and tell you to go away. Go
through the door near the laundry. Enter the first door on the left. Once
inside, go into the room on your right, collecting all available ammo. Kill the
two mobsters that come running downstairs. If the three armed junkies get
involved in the firefight, take them out with the weapon of your choice. Go to
the next level and three mobsters will come running down. Kill them, go
upstairs, and enter the door to your right. Once the cutscene is over, follow
the mobster to Luigi's.

--------------
A One Man War
--------------
Once the door is opened, take down all four mobsters with your dual Berettas.
Go into the elevator. Enter the room at the end of the hall and collect the
Ingram off the side. Once the toilet flushes, a mobster will charge at you with
a lead pipe. Kill him.

After examining the television set, break the windows. Walk across the rooftop
and kill the three mobsters in the room. Walk across the final rooftop.

---------------
A Citywide APB
---------------
After the explosions, kill the two mobsters at the top of the stairs. Make your
way down to the door on the right and stand still. You'll hear two mobsters
talking about which wire to cut. After the bombs explode, attempt to open the
door. The wall will open up, allowing you to go through to the next area.

Walk up the bridge of concrete that two mobsters come down from. After you've
killed them, walk over to the door on the other side, taking out the shotgun
wielding thug. Enter the door on the right and collect any items in the room.
Enter Vinnie's office.

--------------------------
Fear That Gives Men Wings
--------------------------
Shootdodge your way past Vinnie's men. After you've killed them, walk over to
the desk and sample the letter.

Go through the open window and make your way across the rooftop. Follow Vinnie
after the cutscene is over. When you come across the rooftop ledge, wait for
the train to make its way past. As soon as the train comes past, immediately
hit the jump button. This has to be timed right, so don't worry if you don't
get there in the first attempt. It can take some time before you accomplish
your goal.

====================================
Chapter 7: Better than the Last One
====================================
Jump down and walk across the platform. Equip your dual Berettas and take down
the two mobsters. Follow the trail of blood. Carefully jump across the gap,
joining the next rooftop. There are two mobsters to the far right, standing
near the Aesir advertisement board. To kill them quickly and accurately, crouch
and use your Beretta. Make your way to the door at the end of the rooftop,
ignoring the police helicopter. Three mobsters will come running upstairs.
After you've killed them, check the area for any ammo and painkillers. Exit
through the door at the far end.

-------------------
Ice Hard and Slick
-------------------
Turn left and alert the mobsters. Go back behind the wall and the mobsters will
run towards you. Kill them. A mobster will open the locked cage door. Once he's
opened it, use your shotgun to blast him. DO NOT kill him before he opens the
door, or you'll never get past this area. Walk forward and kill the mobster
behind the van.

Get into the elevator and kill the mobster on the way up. Once you get to the
top of the area, crouch behind the wall, dodging bullets from the Desert Eagle.
Equip your Beretta and take down the mobster by the advertisement board. Turn
left and walk up the ramp. Immediately shootdodge to the left, killing any
mobsters in your path. Watch out for shotgun blasts and incoming Grenades. Go
across the stairs and kill the mobsters hiding behind the small wall. Make your
way across all of the boards and you should come to a glass roof. Break it open
and jump down. Kill the mobsters, take all items in the room, and go through
the door.

-----------
All a Blur
-----------
Walk up the steps and enter the door on the left. Walk down the stairs and
enter the door. You'll be able to see a clip of Bravura talking on the TV. Go
into the bathroom and collect the painkillers. Behind the door is a man with
a shotgun. Take him down in a flash. The other thug will run away. As soon as
you come across him, he'll throw a Grenade, so activate bullet time and don't
stop moving. Kill the four remaining mob guys.

When you enter the next doorway, a Grenade will be thrown in your direction. In
order to avoid the blast, roll backwards as soon as you can. Kill the mobster
by the door.

Now, this is a major battle with Gognitti and his men. Make sure your life is
full and you're well equipped. Firstly, deal with the two mobsters that try
running up the stairs to your left. Throw a Grenade behind the crate, taking
out the mobster. A shotgun equipped thug will come running upstairs. Kill him.
Kill the final two mobsters before engaging in battle with Gognitti. Shoot him
with your dual Ingrams and he should soon fall.

==========================
Chapter 8: A Den of Drugs
==========================
Enter the door on your right and pull the catch. Hide behind the wall and blast
the mobster with your shotgun. Pick up all items and examine the book. Take
down the mobster behind the door. Once you've done this, roll back extremely
quickly, or you'll be hit with a Grenade blast. Kill the mobster near the bar
and then kill the mobsters above. Watch out for incoming Molotov Cocktails.

Enter the doors to your right and shootdodge. You'll kill the two mobsters
behind the bar. Once they're taken care of, kill the final thug standing in the
centre of the room. Walk to the centre of the room and enter the door to your
far left. Kill the mobsters and examine the books.

Walk up to the top of the steps. Once there, shootdodge your way into the room
on the left, breaking up the V deal. Once you've dealt with the initial set of
mobsters, a small group will appear near the barrels. Use the wall as cover.
Walk past the barrels and keep turning left. Once you reach the location of
the steps, kill the two mobsters at ground level. Two thugs are waiting for you
at the top. Deal with them quickly. Exit through the door.

Once outside, you'll need to go across to the other door. Kill the mobster
below. Now, you'll have to be extremely careful. Walk to the centre of the
structure and take a left through the door. Take your first right and approach
the ledge. Slowly walk across the ledge and then jump across onto the mini
patch, making your way to the door at the far end.

blasts. Use the steps and press the stage control button.

Once the stage opens up, go through it and then go up the steps. Press 2, 3
and 4. Once you come to the end of the boards, shootdodge to your right,
instantly killing the mobster. If you don't kill him quickly, he'll throw a
Grenade in your direction. Make your way to the very top. Walk across the
first piece of wood and then carefully jump over to the third piece, as the
second one will quickly break. Open the door at the end.

=====================================
Chapter 9: Straight from a Bad Dream
=====================================
Examine all information before preparing for your battle with Lupino and his
men. Make your way to the door and press the button to open it.

Mobsters will jump from every ledge in numerous directions. Activate bullet
time and equip your dual Berettas/Ingrams. Take down every mobster that drops
from the top. If you need to stock up on ammo and painkillers, go to the
tables. There is plenty of ammo and weaponry. Once you've killed the initial
set of mobsters, two or three mobsters will be waiting at the top. Avoid the
Molotov Cocktails and use shootdodge to kill them.

Once Lupino emerges, shootdodge your way past his two guards. Lupino has
Molotov Cocktails and a Sawed-Off Shotgun. Dodge his first two shots and
use your Dual Ingrams on him, as he attempts to reload his weapon. He'll
go down almost instantly.

You'll be stuck near a path of blood. Carefully walk across it and you'll bend
right. Walk to the end of the current trail of blood and jump to the left line
of blood. Keep walking and jump to the blood trail on your left. Keep walking
along and take your first left. If you carry on walking, you'll eventually come 
to a room that looks exactly like the room you were previously in. Walk through
every available door. Before entering the bedroom, you can have a look at
Michelle's diary on the table.

============================
Chapter 1: The Baseball Bat

on the toilet. Enter the bar and get ready to fight Niagara and his men.

Throw your Grenades in the area, hoping to take down one or two mobsters. If
you don't have any, I'd advise you to use your Dual Berettas/Ingrams and make
the most of bullet time and shootdodge. Frankie is armed with Dual Ingrams and
has three mobsters with him. They aren't too hard to defeat. Once they're dead,
watch the following novels.

Molotov Cocktails, and has three or four mobsters guarding him. Try and shoot
the gas tanks to take him down. Move into the next room and collect every
available weapon. There are Colt Commandos, Ingrams, Sniper Rifles, Berettas,
Painkillers, etc. Once you've got everything, leave through the front of the
ship.

Enter the door to your left and take a look at the dead mobster. As you walk
forward, a thug armed with an Ingram will approach you. Kill him, take all
available items in the room, and prepare for some vicious firefights.
Walk through the door and immediately shootdodge. Kill the two mobsters at
the end. Take your first available left and kill the mobster behind the door.
He's to the left of you and he's armed with a Sawed-Off Shotgun. Bullet time
could be key to taking him down. Move forward and turn left. Shootdodge your
way past the three heavily armed mobsters. Go upstairs.

Once you're in the kitchen, take a quick look at the cards on the table.

Smash open the glass and drop down. Crouch down and shoot the explosives on the
wall. Keep your distance or you'll lose a lot of health. Collect all ammo,
listen to the radio, and exit the room through the door. Snipe the two mercs
below. Equip your shotgun before entering the first container. The mercenary in
here is armed with a Pump-Action Shotgun. Go into the room next to you. Stand
behind the door and wait for the guard to come in. Once you've took him down,
collect the ammo and painkillers in the room. Open the garage door and take
down the two armed guards. Open the door to complete this level.

your left. Kill the four or five mobsters in the area. They'll approach you
from different angles. Head upstairs and go through the door. As you move down
the corridor, a mercenary will come out of nowhere. Kill him and turn right.
Take out the guard before he can throw a Grenade at you. To the left of you is
another mobster armed with a Grenade. Kill him and exit through the door. Use
shootdodge to take out the mercenaries. Kill the two mercenaries in the area
and enter the next room.

=========================
Chapter 2: Hidden Truths
=========================
A mobster will come out of the door on your left. Kill him and kill the other
mercenary, standing alone in the small room. Examine the folder on the desk.
Jump to the left and take out the mobster with your shotgun. Throw a Grenade
in the area, taking down the explosive lasers. Use the wheel to open up the
blocked path. Shootdodge to your left, taking out the guard below you and the
one across from you. Open the door and throw a Grenade against the wall. Stand
back before the lasers explode. Enter the door at the far end. Shootdodge and
take out the guard across from you. Throw a Grenade to disable the lasers.
Carefully walk past the fire. Kill the guard and shoot the catch on the wall.
Once the gate is open, turn the wheel to enable you to exit the area, and
collect the items from the shelf.

Once you've opened the door up ahead, I'd advise you to move backwards
immediately. Once the explosions have stopped, carefully walk across, making
sure you don't fall down. Jump onto the containers and fall onto the bridge
below. Push the button and walk across the bridge. Kill the guard to your left,
collect the M79 from the container, shoot the explosives on the door, and
finally exit the area.

to jump onto the broken ladder. Immediately kill the mercenary that comes
through the door. Jump to the right and kill the two mobsters behind the cage.
Open the door, kill the mercenary inside, collect all painkillers and ammo, and
have a look at the monitor. A guard will come running into the room. Once he's
dead, make your way out of the door past the cage. Go downstairs and kill the
two mercenaries. Push the button on the nearby monitor screen. Shoot the garage
and kill the mercenaries inside. Throw a Grenade in the room, disabling the
explosive lasers, and hopefully taking down the mercenary behind them.

-----------------
The Next Doorway
-----------------
Crouch down, standing some distance from the fires. Take out the first set of
lasers attached to the wall. Get into the cart and push the button. When you
are near the last set of lasers, I'd advise you to exit the cart or you'll be
blown up. Kill the two mobsters that open the garage. Carefully move backwards
and DO NOT touch any part of the fire. Crouch down and take out the final
laser. Enter the garage and stay close to the left hand corner, avoiding the
cart that the mercenaries push towards you. Collect all weapons and ammo in
the area, before shutting off the emergency valve. Enter through the door
in the garage. Kill the two mercenaries and take down the lasers. Once you're
into the next area, kill the mercenary above and kill the mercenary that
approaches from the bridge. The bridge is broken, so use the boxes to your
right and make your way across. Open the garage and kill the mobster by the D6
elevator. Press the button and you'll hear sirens. Kill the mobsters in the
elevator and push the button.

The Deep Six
-------------
Walk through the doors up ahead. You'll see a dead man on the floor. Look at
the computer and you'll get a code. Go into the area where the test subjects
are being held. Type the code in the computer. Use the elevator. There is a
man locked in cell B7. Follow the man. DO NOT let the mercenaries kill him,
or you'll have a hard time passing this level, seeing as you won't be able
to get through the chamber. Walk into the chamber.

-----------------
Project Valhalla

Walk through the doors. Move as far to the left as possible, using the tables
to get past the blockage. Enter lab number 2 and use the elevator. Use your
Grenades to destroy the lasers. Jump over the moving laser and enter the
elevator. Push the button on the computer and enter the door. You have 30
seconds to escape the building. There are some lasers on the wall. Shoot the
explosives attached to them and the door will open. Exit the foundry by
using the only available elevator.

Chapter 4: The Backstabbing Bastard
====================================
Two mobsters will come running at you. Once you've killed them, shootdodge to
the left once you reach the end of the wall, taking out the two armed thugs.
Shootdodge forward and kill the two thugs. One of them will jump from the
corner. Kill the other two mobsters firing at you. Use the wall as cover, as
the van will come past and a machine gun will fire. Once the van has gone to
the next level, move to the side and kill the two thugs. Enter the garage on
the right.

-------------------
Alive and at Large
-------------------
Kill the mobster to the left, collecting all of the goodies in the area. Kill
the mobster that approaches from the right. They'll both try to double team
you, so bullet time can be extremely useful at this point. As you try to walk
down the exit ramp, the van will try to shoot at you again. Jump to the side
and avoid the deadly bullets. Kill the mobsters that remain. Turn right at the
end, killing any thug that stands in your way. They're all well armed and will
try to confront you with different angles, so make sure that you keep a safe
distance. Walk around the structure and you'll come across some locked gates.
Shoot the padlock. Avoid the machine gun blasts by using the white van as
cover. Immediately shoot dodge to the left, avoiding the blast of a shotgun.
Once you've dealt with five or six mobsters, go and find the double doors.
Listen to the radio. Head out of the garage at the end.

-----------------------
The Name of Your Enemy
-----------------------
Two mobsters will try approaching you from the side. Once you've killed them,
walk to the bottom of the ramp and stay behind the boxes for a few seconds.
Once the van sets the mobsters on fire, keep walking forward until you come
across three mobsters. One will approach you from the side, whereas the other
two will be directly in front of you, using the cars as cover. Keep circling
the area, killing any thug that stands in your way. B.B. will finally emerge
from the van.

B.B. will have three or four mobsters with him. Once you've killed them,
shootdodge to your right and kill him with your dual Ingrams. He shouldn't
have the time to get a shot off at you. He has a Jackhammer and Grenades,
so I'd advise you to keep a safe and fair distance. Answer the ringing
payphone.

====================================
Chapter 5: In the Land of the Blind

Take your first left, disabling the explosive lasers and taking down the
mercenary near them. Use the walls as cover in this next area. Kill the
mercenaries that make their way towards you. Upon entering the door, stop as
soon as you see a moving laser. Activate bullet time and take down the guard
above. Go through the door on the far right. After looking at the monitor,
two mercenaries will immediately ambush you. Once they're dealt with, keep
walking along the end of the hall until another mercenary approaches. Kill him.
In the middle of the hall, open the door with the green code on it. Step back
and avoid the wrath of a Molotov Cocktail. Kill the mercenary in front of you,
the one that gets out of the second elevator, and the one standing on the
stairs, waiting to take you down with a shotgun. Keep going up and kill every
mercenary in your way. Kill the guard in the elevator. As you're walking

with one of your weapons, and exit through the doors up ahead. There are two
mercenaries in the hallway. Once you've killed them, head into the office at
the far end of the hall, picking up the tape on your way past. Look at the map
of the Aesir Corporation. Go into the next area.

------------------
A Sci-Fi Fortress

As you come to the stairs, two mercenaries armed with shotguns will rope down
from above. Take them out before they're able to blast you. Walk all the way
down.

--------------
Clean Up Duty
--------------
You'll hear two killer suits having a conversation. Take them out with your
shotgun, pick up any available weapons and ammo, and exit through the door.
There are about five or six heavily armed thugs in this area. Use the walls
as cover and make the most of bullet time. Once you've killed them all, walk
through the entrance.

=============================
Chapter 7: An Eye for an Eye
=============================
As soon as you past the metal detectors, three heavily armed mercenaries will
come towards you. Use bullet time to take them down. As you move into the next
area, walk to the far left hand corner. Crouch down and equip your Sniper
Rifle. Quickly kill the three M79 armed mercenaries. If you don't keep a
distance between you and the gunmen, you'll take some severe damage. Keep
walking forward and kill the two killer suits that come through the door.
Take out the first laser attached to the steps. Proceed forward until you get
to the middle. Instantly turn around, taking out the mercenary behind you.
Throw your Grenades against the wall, enabling you to destroy the lasers.
Disable the final laser. Activate shootdodge to take down the three armed
guards. Make your way up the steps, taking out the lasers along the way.
Kill the suit that ambushes you and enter the area.

----------------
Stone-Cold Dead
----------------
Carefully jump over the first laser. It moves up and down, so jump over it
when it reaches the lowest point. Jump over the next set of lasers. They move
at a fast pace, so carefully time your movements. When the next laser reaches
it's highest point, walk under it and have a good weapon equipped. Quickly
shoot the mercenary standing at the end of the hall, or you'll be killed with
a Colt Commando. Jump over the next set of lasers, carefully timing your
movement. The final two lasers should be easy to get past. Walk under the
fifth one and jump over the final one. Shootdodge your way past the two armed
guards. Enter the elevator. Equip your Dual Ingrams and take down the three
killer suits that attack you from behind. Go into the elevator. Use your Sniper
Rifle to take out as many lasers as possible. The M79 can also be useful at
taking down the laser beams.

Once you've reached the top, kill the killer suits to your left. Hide behind
the wall and carefully kill the two suits standing above you. Enter the door
and push the elevator access button. When you leave the room, there is a guard
directly in front of you and two to your right. After you've killed them, make
your way through the opened elevator doors.

---------------
Take Your Pick
---------------
Push the button. As the elevator starts slowly moving down, Horne's helicopter
will fire its machine gun at you. Use bullet time and jump up and down to dodge
the large majority of bullets. Shoot the elevator glass below you and drop down
onto it. Push the button and you'll go to the next area. Kill the two thugs to
the left and the one on the right. Take out the suits that are using the stairs
and computers as cover. Shoot all of the mainframe systems, allowing you access
to the top of the building. Three mercenaries will be in the elevator where the
suits were previously standing. Once you've disposed of them, enter the
elevator and go all the way up.

There's a wall near the stairs. Use it as cover. Attempt to take out the three
thugs that come running down the steps. Once they're dead, make your way
upstairs. Use the wall as cover, take down the three mercenaries, and examine
Horne's personal computer. Get into the elevator.

==============================
Chapter 8: A Warrior's Heaven

cutscene, hide behind the centre of the statue, hoping to avoid the majority of
bullets. Bullet time and shootdodge can also be useful. The helicopter will
eventually fly away. Kill the two thugs that open the locked doors. Once
outside, carefully jump on to the ledge. Jumping along and using bullet time
can limit the amount of damage you take. Make your way through the next area.

will appear from the elevator. After you've dealt with them, immediately jump
to the right, taking down the suit that enters the area. Kill the two suits in
the room and kill the one in the door to your right. Open the door on the left
hand side and take down the thugs to the left. Enter the next door. Kill the
mobster on the door to your right and keep going forward. A mobster will roll
along the floor. Hit him with your shotgun. Go upstairs and shootdodge your
way past the four killer suits. Go over to Horne's computer, push the button
located on the side, and head through the opened door.

Pain and Suffering
-------------------
Run to the top of the stairs, avoiding the Grenade that Horne throws in your
direction. To your right is a platform holding the wires together. Shoot the
centre of it with your Sniper Rifle. Equip a very powerful weapon and
shootdodge your way past the four killer suits. One of them is carrying an M79,
so don't get too close to him. The other platform is opposite the first
platform. Get in a good position and snipe the centre. Turn around, equip the
M79, and shoot the top of the tower.

Congratulations! You've completed Max Payne. Enjoy the final cutscenes and
graphic novels.
