THE DEAD CITY
All notes locations are mentioned in the walkthrough...
MILITARY GRADE AMMO
You can use these as both ammo for SMGs and Assault Rifles and also as currency to trade for normal ammo and guns.
To use this as ammo, go into the TAB menu and choose a gun, if you see an R next to the Militariy Grade ammo icon on the top right then you can hit R to use it. And you need to do the same to revert to ordinary ammo again.
Like the title says - this level is a short but important one, you don't get to play thru it, only listening is what we can do and we ought to do that because our guy tells us all about the place we are in and how we got here from the beginning and what we are going to do now...
He takes us thru the times and how they have been and gives us a little back drop on the Dark Ones...
After the intro, we are asked to choose our play-mode and difficulty - if you are playing for the first time and you are used to playing games then choose Normal Mode and then Hardcore - you can go Ranger Mode on your second playthrough when you know how the games works a bit better...
After a deeply disturbing start, Khan wakes us up and takes us on a stroll thru Sparta.
-- Follow Khan to a meeting with Miller
Just keep going ahead looking around at Sparta - the underground stronghold of the Order...
As you go ahead, you'll come to the Armory, where you'll be given a Gas Mask and some filters for that. You'll also be introduced to the currency system of this place and time - military grade ammunition -
If you look to the right of the armory, you will find the guns you can take with you - you can carry three at all times. You have a choice from six weapons being -
Valve - a long range rifle which can be used for sniping
Kalash - that's what they call the AK-47, mid-range assault rifle
RPK - a light machine gun, great for mid and short ranges and it's gets better when you are surrounded.
Bastard - Sub-Machine Gun, good for mid and short ranges
Shambler - This you got to have as one of the three... Combat Shotgun...
Revolver - A powerful mid range weapon...
You can hit E to choose a weapon and then choose to Customize it by adding some attachments - which usually include silencers and scopes. Choose according to your wish but you ought to have at least one weapon (preferably the pistol) with a silencer.
Up next close to the right is the shooting range where you get to practice with the weapons you just took. You can go back and select different weapons and practice with them too with different attachments to get a good feel of all the weapons and better understanding on which you would prefer in different situations.
Keep going and you'll meet up with Khan soon enough. Go along with him and he gives you his opinion on things and some more and after you meet Miller, things change and you got to go out on a mission with a different objective. As you move out with Anna, just before you get into the elevator, look on the chair to the rigt and you will find the [[NOTE]] for this particular part -
Keep going and you'll catch a train leading out...
-- Find the Dark One in the Garden
Move out of the train and follow Anna to the exit, hit the lever next to the exit door -
Move out and keep following Anna thru the gutter, you'll spot a ladder in the end which Anna climbs, you ought to follow her but if you walk past the ladder, you can find the [[NOTE]] for this part next to two dead guys -
Go up the ladder and you'll see what the radiation hit surface looks like...
Follow Anna ahead till she spots a Dark One and asks you to go after it while she makes herself comfy in a Sniper's nest. Keep moving ahead and note that if you are low on air, swap the filter by hitting T. Just keep going ahead and from the right edge of the place, your first enemies come in. Keep shooting them and more follow from ahead and to the left. After the little scuttle, if you are hurt then hit Q to get a medkit and heal yourself.
After that, there's really one one way you can go forward so keep going that way and after Anna says you got close to it, you'll end up in an enclosed area with a crouch area -
Go thru it and keep running ahead and you'll see the Dark One - seems to be only a little thing but once you get close to it, you'll see the past...
-- Escape Reich territory, follow Pavel and evade detection
After you get free, go ahead with Pavel into the tunnel and move along with him and you'll come to the concentration camp. Pavel asks you to follow him thru the shadows, if you look at the ground ahead, you'll see the shadow of a fan turning. You need to move in the shade to avoid detection.
Once you are on the other side, Pavel climbs up and drops a ladder, take to go up. Follow Pavel ahead and you'll listen to his plan. Stay crouched and move to the right and behind the guard -
Wait for a bit until Pavel moves ahead to and then knockout or kill the guy in front of you. After each time you take down an enemy, you can loot him with E for military-grade ammo and more. After Pavel takes down his mark too, you ought to pull the level which was in front of the guy you just took out -
Move up the set of steps which come down to your right and as soon as you go up go to the bulb nearby which is illuminating the area and hit E to pull it out -
Remember that even the slightest bit of light can get you detected. After the lights are out, cross the narrow plank bridge and take out the enemy on the other side. You will also come across a ladder, take it up and you'll come to a tunnel. Keep going and you'll fall in front of a dead body with throwing knives on it. Pick them up and you can use the knives when hitting C.
Nearby, you will also find the [[NOTE]] of this part -
Move ahead and you can see the place ahead thru a narrow gap in between walls. If you are not too careful, an enemy might spot you here -
Anyway, keep going and you will see Pavel on a walkway on top of you. You need to push the Button ahead now -
-- Escape the exit to the Jail
You'll come out of the jail as you continue ahead. In this place, you will see an enemy strolling about -
You can take him out with your silenced pistol or move close behind him and knock him out. Upfront are more enemies, you can take the higher path if you climb the iron grate steps which come to your right as you move ahead -
There's an enemy strolling on the top ahead of you too. Take him out and look ahead below you to the right and you can spot three enemies -
If you go left and look below, you will spot another enemy you can take down. Get him and go back up to the three guys and shoot them from the top. Go below and near to where they were standing and you will spot a level which opens the prison gates -
If you move to the left side of this area to the left of the gate, you will spot a medicine box -
Then go to the lever on the right od the door and pull it up with Pavel to open the door and get out of here.
You'll now come to the main area of Reich territory.
-- Escape Reich Territory
On a table nearby in the next room is the [[NOTE]] of this area -
Move ahead and climb the steps and you'll come into the middle of all the Reich...
Keep running ahead along with Pavel and go thru the lowering gate. Jump onto the rails and start shooting any Reich officers coming out of the door which you just closed behind you.
After the rail car stops, move ahead along with Pavel thru the filth and he spots a pipe which he asks you to boost him thru and gets caught...
-- Find a way to save Pavel. Try not to set off Alarms. Find a way to the top..
Move ahead and you'll hear two officers coming to look for you. Hide to the left of the large entrance to the Reich Camp and take them out silently once they come out. Move in and to the left of the camp - stay crouched and in the shadows.
Just as you go into the camp and look to the left, you can see a ramp that you can walk up on -
Fall down the other side and unscrew the bulb behind you. There are enemies patrolling right ahead of you but they will most likely miss you if you stay crouched. To the left here is a box of supplies -
If you go to the end to the left, you'll see a door ahead but you should not enter it yet -
There are three enemies here talking and they will definitely spot you. If you wait till their conversation is over, you will see two of the move away to the left. Now go in and take out the lone guy sitting in the sofa. Now, move up from behind him and once you are upstairs, you can see a guy patrolling the sidewalk around this room. In this room on the machines you see, you can find the first [[NOTE]] of this area -
Now you can start killing the enemies in this place however you want to. After that though, move to the next area to the left of this place (where the first enemies went after finishing up their conversation). Once you are there, climb up the steps you can see and you'll come to a guy who wants to surrender.
In this room to the left is the second [[NOTE]] of this area -
You can also choose to kill or just knock out the guy here and then look him and the box on the table nearby. Then move ahead and you will spot a crawl space to the left -
Keep going and you will get out of this place...
You'll talk with Pavel in this beginning of this place itself and they take him away...
Keep going till you can jump down into the next area.
-- Find and save Pavel without setting off the Alarm
Keep going ahead and you'll see the enemies harassing a guy. Look to the right and move there and you will come to the steps leading up -
Turn off the lamp on top of the stairs from below and move ahead. You'll come to two guys talking to each other - stay hidden between the boxes and wait till they finish talking. After which one guy moves to the left and goes back on the path you just came in here from. Slowly follow him and keep going till he goes into the place you first jumped here into and he opens a locker -
Knock him out, loot him and his locker. Go back and if you see that other guy now then knock him out too and go back and climb the steps you saw earlier. Once you climb, move ahead to the left and you'll see a guy near a switch board under a light. Wait for him to move away and then hit the lights -
Knockout the two guys on top and if you are not lucky then the ones on the bottom with notice you. Move to the other side and go down the steps there and continue ahead. You'll come to a door and once you open it, you'll come into the freezer and you see a guy begging for his life. Leave him alone and move on. If you did not find the freezer then it is the room to the left corner of the area below you. If you do manage to kill everyone below then you can loot them for a lot of supplies. The sign to the meat freezer on the wall is this -
Look around below though and you can find supply boxes and then head into the freezer. Once you come out on the other side, you come into a plantation room which has a lot of plant. Move to the other side of the room towards the exit and to the right of the exit is a medicine box -
Go into the next place ahead and to the left as you enter, you can see a switch board -
Hit the lights and wait to the left behind the switches because and enemy will come here to inspect this. Knock him out and there are two guys ahead as you can see them. Just before you go to them - to the left you can see a way across
Move to the other side and knock out the enemies here. Move to the right and you will come behind the two guys you saw earlier. Knock them out one by one and go in thru the door you see here to the left with 2 written on the wall and steps leading below -
-- Find the switch to open the Double Doors
Keep going thru the crawl space and once you come out, climb the steps and look ahead below. To the right are more steps -
Once below you will a find water hole and a light. Unscrew the light and move into the hole -
Before you jump into the hole, behind it are three lockers -
If you open the middle one, you can get a new weapon. Then move into the hole. You will see an enemy in there so take him out and come out the other side. Once you are out of the hole, move to the left and you will see a switch board so hit it and you can kill all of the enemies below here.
After that, move to the left end of this area where you find steps. Go up them and knockout the enemy above. There's a lever box here -
Once you pull it the door to the right below you will open -
Go thru it and you will see a [[NOTE]] on the table -
Go in front of the large steel door and move to the right. You will need to spot a booby trap as you move ahead -
This will explode if you don't diffuse it. Move ahead and go up the steps to the right. Once you go up, you will come to a large generator. Hit E to stop it and continue ahead. You will see Pavel thru the debris being hanged. Kill the two soldiers here and move close to Pavel and hit E to rescue him and follow him out of this area.
--Find a way thru the Catacombs
Keep following Pavel and after a while, he stops and tells you of the creatures which inhabit this area. They are afraid of the light - at the same time you will also get a tutorial on how to recharge the batteries of your torchlight. Hold F and the charger comes up, keep hitting LMB to charge it - you'll need to remember to do this often.
Next, Pavel asks for your help in lifting a metal grate and you ought to jump down with him. Soon, you'll get in the lift with Pavel and suddenly it stops... Keep shooting everything that climb up the walls of the elevator till the elevator starts moving again.
Once you are on top, you'll come across one straight ahead. Illuminate the creature using your torch light and when it exposes it's belly, then shoot it to death. That's the only way to kill these things - light them up and then shoot them in the weak spot.
Keep going along with Pavel and after a while you'll come to the edge of the road and you'll need to jump across it - this is also the place where a small group of the spiders come to attack you. Kill all of them and then Pavel shows you how to get across the gap. Next, you'll climb up a rail car where more of the creatures attack.
Once on top, as you move ahead, look to the right and you will spot the [[NOTE]] for this level -
After there, you'll do another daring jump across a gap. Then keep following Pavel and he takes up a torch to burn all the cobwebs around here as you move along - all this time mistaking the spiders for female canines. In the end, you'll come to a door that's electrically locked and Pavel wants us to open it.
-- Find the Fusebox and open the Door
Move ahead, search the dead body to the right as you go and keep going, you should see a gap in the wall above you to the left as you pass. You will jump out of there soon. Go ahead and you will come across a locked door. Keep going and you will come across more bodies with supplies -
Past the first bodies to the left is another dead guy holding the second [[NOTE]] of this level -
Keep going and you will need to find them nasties soon and just keep pushing ahead and finally you will come to the fusebox -
Ahead on the wall straight across is a supply box on the wall -
Jump out of the gap in the wall to the left and go back to Pavel and follow him out of here and out of the underground too...
-- Follow Pavel to the Theater Station
Go ahead and to the left on the counter table is the first [[NOTE]] in this part -
There are also some supplies and Pavel asks you to wear the Gas Mask ahead. From the moment you step outside, you will keep losing your filters so you will need to collect them constantly to be able to move thru. I will give you the locations of all the filters you can find on your way.
You will come out and into the world. Follow Pavel and he first takes you down a slope from the building. Once you come off it, look to the left to spot a tunnel -
Inside the tunnel you will find supplies in the end along with an Air Filter and also a customized pistol beside a skeleton -
Go back outside and join Pavel. You will cross a deep hole in the ground from your left and as you go, Pavel moves into a station of sorts, before you go in, move to the left outside and in the corner, you will spot another Filter -
Go inside the station with him and you will initially come across a dead body. Hit E when near it and Artyom squashes a bug which crawls onto his mask. You can now replace you mask with the one on the ground and and move ahead.
As you move ahead, you will come to a room adjacent to the path you are on which has a filter. You will reach the exit of the station and you ought to spot a door to the right below the steps leading out -
Go in and you can grab a new gun and a filter. After that, move ahead slowly on the steps and Pavel asks you to stay low. Crouch then and stay hidden as a pack of creatures is crossing. If they spot you, you'll be in a hell of a fight
After that, just follow Artyom and you will come to the airplane. Go inside and as soon as you step in, look to the left to find a filter. Follow Artyom inside and you will see a vision soon.
After that, you can see Pavel sitting on the ground and a [[NOTE]] to his left -
Pull Pavel up and move out. You will find another Filter with a skeleton as you go thru the plane. Once you are out, you will also fight your first Demon. Keep shooting it or it will take you away. Once that is over. From where you fought the demon, Artyom goes ahead. But you can actually go into the houses which are to the left and right here of the path. In each house you will find filters and supplies.
After that, go out and near Artyom and soon you'll be in a fight. Take out the shotgun which you recently acquired and start shooting. There's a filter and ammo on the hood of the car to the left of where the fighting is going on now. After that, go ahead with Pavel...
NOTE: There's a bug in the game and sometimes Pavel does not move ahead after this fight. He just stands in one place - if that happes you will need to restart the whole level again.
Go ahead and once you get into the large building, keep running and soon, you will reach the red line...
