P R O L O G U E : TH E ED G ENOTEIf you examine thewall near the boxes,you will see a RunnerGlyph spray painted onit. This indicates that astash point containinga hidden bag is nearby.Smash open the reddoor in front of youand follow the corridorinside as it winds upand to the right. At theend of the corridorare several stacksof boxes.Pro-TipRun up the spiralingred metal staircase asfast as you can. Thepatrol cops are rightbehind you, and theycontinue to fire at you,so don’t stop runningfor an instant.To ascend the staircase in a hurry, wallclimb-turn-jump from one ofthe red pillars at the bottom of the stairs to reach the second flight. Dothe same again on the second flight to reach the top.Beyond the door is a T-junction. If you look at the left wall carefully, you’llsee another Runner Glyph, indicating a nearby stash point. To proceed, turnright and smash through another red door.Jump up onto the shortest stack of boxes, turn left, and pull yourself uponto the tallest stack of boxes. Face the other side of the hallway to see anarrow red pipe, just wide enough for you to leap to and hang from. Jumpacross the hallway to hang from the pipe.While continuing tohang from the pipe,turn around and jump.This should carryyou back across thehallway and have Faithautomatically grab ametal air duct. Pullyourself up onto it and turn to the right to see a red-lined duct entrance.Pro-TipTo avoid climbing on the boxes altogether, use a wallclimb-turn-jumpto reach the ledge.HIDDEN BAGTo reach the second stash point of the chapter, turn left at the T-junctionand run to the end of the hall, Jump up onto the lowest level of thescaffolding and pull yourself up to the stack of crates to your left (or justuse a wallrun-turn-jump to get up there quickly). The second hidden bag isat the top of the crates.It is difficult but not impossible to pick up the bag and still escape fromthe four pursuing patrol cops. You need to run and jump to the next stackof crates, using the metal air duct to your left as cover from their gunfire. Ifyou make any mistakes, you’re likely tobe taken down, and four cops are aboutthree too many to fight. However, evenif you don’t make a successful escape,you still get credit for picking up thehidden bag, and you start over fromthe bottom of the red staircase, so it’snot that bad.26HIDDEN BAGThe fi rst hidden bag of the chapter sitsjust below the duct entrance. You can’tmiss it.Jump and pull yourself up into the duct and follow it as it winds around. Ifyou listen closely, you can hear the chatter of police radios below you. Dropdown through the opening at the end of the duct and be ready to skillrolland run!Four patrol cops aresurprised by yoursudden entrance, butnot for long. Theyimmediately beginshooting at you, so turnand run in the oppositedirection!The red door takes youback out to the rooftops.Turn left to see anorange catwalk that youneed to clear. You couldjust run up the stairs,but it’s even quicker tojump up onto the ACunit in front of it and vault the railing.Keep running forward, turn right, and leap off the end of the red ramp toreach the next rooftop. Be sure to execute a skillroll just before landing, oryou will suffer damage from the fall.PR I M A OF F I C I A L GA M E GU I D E

Ifyou’re on the left side, you can springboard off another red objectand land safely on top of some AC units.The nextrooftop youneed to leaponto hastwo patrolcops on it.The red glowsurroundingthem means that you need to get past them somehow to proceed.Fortunately, they are also spread out enough that you can deal withthem individually. You have to be quick about it, though, becausepolice reinforcements start appearing behind you as you moveforward to deal with these two cops.There are three methods of dealing with the patrol cops: indirect,non-lethal, and lethal. You can mix and match strategies as yousee fit.Indirect MethodLeap for the leftside of therooftop anduse the largeround structureas cover fromthe first cop’sfire.

We have been made to believe that the past is the past,and to meditate on it too much is to invite it back into our lives.But this is wrong. We have built our memorials, shed our tears,been told to forget. We have been told nothing is wrong now.INTRODUCTIONTRAININGCHARACTERSENEMIESWALKTHROUGHCHECKPOINT BKate says that Pope asked after Faith, despite the fact that Faith hadn’t seen him in tenyears. Kate is sure that there’s more to this than a simple murder, and she tells Faith to goto her commanding offi cer, Lieutenant Miller, if things go badly. Merc gets on the command warns Faith that the Blues are incoming. Faith takes a scrap of paper from Pope’sdesk, hugs her sister, and exits Pope’s office just as a squad of Blues enters.When the elevator doors open, step out of them to trigger acinematic. Faith’s sister, Officer Kate Connors, stands over the bodyof Robert Pope, whose lifeless body slumps over his desk. Kate saysthat he was alive when she got there, but shortly after she arrived, thepower went out, and she was knocked out.

It’smuch better to take an extra second or two to line up a jumpthan to rush it and miss, which will cost you considerablymore time.CAUTIONThere are several ways to get from the ground floor to the nextlevel, but this is the quickest one.You can pickup the gun onRopeburn’sdesk or leaveit. It won’t doyou muchgood againstthe SWATcops when they start pouring in, but you can use it to shoot out theglass panels of the offi ces, which can help you set up jumps better.However, it also slows you down slightly, so the choice is yours.Run out Ropeburn’s offi ce door and smash through the glass panelsstraight ahead of you. If you have the pistol, you can shoot them outas you run toward them. Otherwise, use the same action you’d use tobash open a red door.Turn right andrun to the topof the stairs.Turn left andface the largeorange artobject in themiddle of thelobby. Wallrun up to the top of it and leap off the end of it to grab ahorizontal red bar.Swing andjump from thebar to landon the largeorange blockbeyond it, andthen turn rightand wallrun upto the top of the next block. Turn right to face the next landing thatyou have to leap to. If you have the pistol, shoot out the glass panelsat the beginning of it. If you don’t, jump toward it and smash theglass as you leap forward.There are more glass panels at the far end of it. Smash them orshoot them out, and then wallrun along the orange section of wall tothe left to reach the next landing.NOTEWith any luck, you should be able to reach the next landingjust before or just after the SWAT cops arrive on the floorbelow you. If that’s the case, you’re in great shape. If you’rerunning behind…well, you should probably get ready torestart from Ropeburn’s office.Run into theoffices beyondthe landing.This keeps youout of the lineof fire of theSWAT copsbelow.

C H A P T E R 3: H E A TPro-TipHere’s a great shortcut that will dramatically reduce your run timethrough the level: Instead of going down the ramp, use a wallrunjump-vaultand climb onto the roof of the building. The chopper fliesover your head, and you leap to the next building with the two riotcops on it.Pull yourself up, andbe ready for anotherscrap. There are twomore riot cops up hereon the roof of thisbuilding. Runcounter-clockwisearound the perimeterof the roof, turning left just after the end of the chain link fence. Run straightahead to find the fi rst riot cop.Close in on himquickly and enterReaction Time toquickly and easilydisarm him, knockinghim out as you do.This puts his shotgunin your hands.Whether or not you use it on his partner is up to you.TIPWhen fi ghting the riot cops on this rooftop, be aware of opportunitiesto use a wallrun-kick to spin one of the riot cops around and instantlydisarm him from the rear.The second riot copwill be on one side orthe other of the largestructure with theorange Caposa signon it. Figure out wherehe is, and then waitaround the corner ofthe large structure for him to come to you. You can either beat him up withmelee attacks, disarm him, or shoot him with the first cop’s shotgun.When both riot copsare out of commission,pull yourself up onto thelarge structure that youused for cover from thesecond cop and jumpoff the edge of it towardthe red crane. Coil asyou soar over the chain link fence to avoid being injured by the barbed wirethat lines the top of it.Use the two ladders on the crane to climb to the top of it. Once you’re upthere, pull yourself up onto the arm itself and line up very carefully beforerunning and jumping off the end of it.TIPThe best way to ensure that you’re lined up is to position your reticle atthe very end of the crane arm.Now simply runand jump off theend of the beams.A large red cushionbelow will absorbthe impact of yourfall, so don’t worryabout skillrolling.HIDDEN BAGSkillroll just beforeyou land on the largecollection of steelbeams that hangs froma second crane.

Leapoff the padded cushion and onto the red ladder that hangs down from thesecond crane. This can be a tricky jump, so take a second to line it up, anddon’t jump until the very last possible moment.Climb to the top of that ladder and runcounter-clockwise around the base of thecrane to reach a second ladder. Climbthis ladder as well. Continue runningcounter-clockwise to find the hiddenbag.

She tellshim that she’s investigating Ropeburn, since he was Pope’s head of security. Shedoesn’t know if he killed Pope, but he definitely set up Kate. Miller warns Faith thatRopeburn is a dangerous man, but Faith doesn’t care—he set up her sister, andnothing else matters.Miller apologizes to Faith, and before she can ask why, he pulls a gun on her. Millerdoesn’t want Kate to go down for Pope’s murder, and CPF has private securityfirms muscling in on their territory. The only way to save CPF and Kate is to givethem Faith.With almost superhuman speed, Faith wrestles Miller’s gun away from him. Hedraws his backup piece, and the two of them face each other in a tense standoff.Faith tells Miller that all she cares about is Kate and, for her sake, she’ll let Millergo.

Merc suggests that Faith get amove on if she wants to fi nd out.All of the chain link fences on this rooftop are electrified, so don’t touchthem, and defi nitely do not try to vault them. Instead, from the start point,turn right and make a long running jump off the edge of the rooftop to aterrace across the street. If you build up to sprint speed before making thejump, you can land directly on the terrace; otherwise, you will grab the edgeand have to pull yourself up.Make a wide U-turnaround the longplanter and leapstraight off the redplanks at the othercorner of the terraceto grab a verticalred pipe.

Pick up the bag andkeep moving.Drop off thisledge in thedirection of thenearby verticalred pipe toland on a lowersection of therooftop near ared door. Skillroll to avoid taking damage from the fall. (You also canjump onto the red pipe and slide down, but that’s slightly slower.)Smash open the red door and go through it.Turn left andrun down thehallway beyondthe red door,vaulting overobstacles asyou go. Gothrough theopen doorway at the end of it, and look up at the area above thedoorway to see a red-lined duct entrance. That’s your next goal.If you’re taking your sweet time, you can jump up onto the bundledplanks and jump up from there to grab the lip of the upper ledge.From there, you can pull yourself up to the ledge, crouch down tocrawl under some pipes, and enter the duct.However, amuch faster(and onlyslightly morecomplex)method is toface the redsection of walland wallrun-turn-jump off it. This lands you right in front of the ductentrance in a fraction of the time.Either way you get there, crawl into the duct and follow it until itcomes to an end. Stand up and pull yourself up and to the right tocontinue moving through it. This brings you to a pair of grates onCHAPTER 4: ROPEBURNthe bottom of the duct. Putting your weight on either of them willcause you to fall out of the duct and down to the floor below. Youcan get past the first one by jumping as soon as the grate begins tofall, but it doesn’t matter which one you drop down through—theyboth take you to the same place.Go forward andturn left at yourfirstopportunity. Ifyou lookclosely, youcan see a ratscurry ahead ofyou around another corner. Follow the rat to see a plank stretchingacross a pit with an L-shaped duct overhead. If you drop into the pit,you’ll have to start over from where you dropped out of the ducts. Sodon’t do that.Wallrun alongthe red sectionof wall above thepit and jumpduring thewallrun to get upto the L-shapedduct. Turn to face a red bar stretching above the pit, and run andjump from the end of the duct nearest the bar to grab onto the bar.Swing and jump from the bar to land on another section of ducting.Turn right tosee a secondred bar.

CHAPTER 4: ROPEBURNMerc tells Faith that the Blues are about to crash the party. She needs to get out of therenow. Turn around and run through the gap in the fence to reach a red door, and smashthrough it to reach a set of stairs leading up.CHECKPOINT CRun up the stairs and go back through the open doorway toreturn to the area that you already visited just prior todiscovering Miller and Ropeburn’s meeting. Three SWAT copswith shotguns occupy the lower fl oor of it, so you need to movequickly. Springboard off the red box ahead of you to grab azipline overhead.If you’re feeling scrappy, you can try todisarm or beat up the SWAT cops, but theodds are not in your favor, and there’s amuch faster and easier way to proceed.Dismount from the zipline just before theorange-striped pillar and run left into theopen elevator.Jump up tograb theedge of theopen roofpanel insidethe elevatorand pullyourself up to the roof.

They both lead tothe same place.Use the two verticalred pipes in theL-shaped corridorbeyond the red doorsto reach the catwalkthat runs above it. Rundown the catwalk andexecute a wallrunturn-jumpoff the end of it to grab a red pole suspended high above theground around the corner of the corridor. This can be a tricky maneuver topull off—make sure not to turn and jump until your wallrun takes youalmost to the end of the wall.Swing and jump fromthe bar to the nextsection of catwalk, andclimb into the red-linedduct entrance in thewall. Use it to reach theupper part of a subwaystation that has beenclosed for renovations. Drop down to floor level.OBJECTIVE COMPLETE✓ Head down into the subway station to lose the Blues.Go into the main part of the station with the blue-tiled walls. There are twostaircases here: one behind a barbed-wire chain link fence that leads to theturnstiles, and another that is not blocked off. Go up the latter set of stairsand leap from them up onto a scaffold platform. Wallrun up some verticalboards to reach the highest platform on the scaffold.Turn left and jump toanother scaffold, aimingfor the corner of theplatform that sticks outpast the rest ofthe scaffolding.Run and jump off theend of this scaffold,coiling your legsto clear the barbedwire on top of thechain link fence.You can also usea wallrun-jump tocross the fence.under a partially closed gate, and keep going.Run through thestation as fast as youcan, using the redlines of tile on thefloor to guide you.Vault over obstacles inyour path to preserveyour momentum. SlideTwo more gatesahead of you startclosing. If you time itperfectly and preserveyour momentum bywallrunning pastthe turnstiles, youcan slide under bothgates before they close. If you’re too slow, you must press the button in themiddle of the gates to open them.Keep moving! There are Blues right behind you, but they won’t proceed pastthe last closed gate. Head for the orange tunnel ahead of you and run downthe stairs or escalators to the train platform—and be ready for a fight. Theplatform is crawling with two patrol cops and four SWAT cops. There arethree equally effective methods of dealing with them: indirect, lethal, andnon-lethal.IndirectYou can get throughthis platform withoutthrowing a punch orfiring a shot if you’requick about it. Enterthe platform via theescalator on the rightside of the orangetunnels, and run along the right side of the platform, being careful not to falldown onto the train tracks.Ignore the Blues that you run past. If you’re moving at sprint speed, you’rea very difficult target to hit. When a cop steps out from behind a pillar infront of you, though, weave around the pillars to keep solid cover betweenyou and him.TIPIf you’re not interested in beingcompletely non-violent, you canstun cops that get in your way witha jump kick, but don’t stick aroundto finish them off, or you’ll quicklybe swarmed by their backup.62PR I M A OF F I C I A L GA M E GU I D E

Keep runningalong the rightside of theplatform anddrop to thetrain trackswhen youreach the end,making sure that there isn’t an oncoming train first. Look ahead andright to see a red ladder leading up to a red beam.Climb the ladderand cross thebeam as quicklyas possible.Crawl into theduct entranceon the otherside of thetracks and takea deep breath. You made it! Rest up here for a few seconds beforecontinuing, if you need to.Non-LethalTo deal withthe cops in anon-lethal way,go down thestairs on theleft side of theorange tunnelsand either beatup or disarm thefi rst patrol cop you see. Do the same to the second patrol cop, who’sright behind him.The SWAT cops are a little trickier to deal with, because their heavybody armor makes them very resistant to melee combat damage, andthe rapid rate of fi re of their machineguns cuts you down if you rushstraight at them. What you need to do is keep the pillars between youand them and draw them out to one side or the other. If they poketheir heads out from the left side of the pillar, run around the rightside and close in quickly to disarm them.Reaction Time makes disarming the SWAT cops much easier, butyou need to keep building momentum to be able to use it. Oneexcellent way to do that is to run back up the stairs leading upfrom the platform and then come back down.

Jump in thedirection of the graffi ti to grab the lip ofan alcove overhead.Pull yourself into the alcove to fi nd thehidden bag. Once you have it, you caneither wallrun-jump across the traintracks to reach a duct that spits you outnear the entrance to Checkpoint E, oryou can go back to the area with thethree red bars and drop to the ground,skillrolling to prevent taking damage,and continue the walkthrough from there.NOTEIf you fail to reach the third red bar and fall to the ground, you can’t getback up there without replaying the checkpoint from the main menu.Complete the rest of the chapter and then jump back to Checkpoint Dto give it another shot.After crawlingthrough the ductthat leads awayfrom the subwayplatform, drop offthe ledge to theground below andskillroll to avoidtaking damage. Crawl through either of the two tunnels that lead under thetrain tracks and go through the red door at the end of the catwalk beyond thetunnels to proceed.OBJECTIVE COMPLETE✓ Fight your way through the platform and escape intothe accessways.CHECKPOINT EOn the other side of the red door is a long catwalk with several paths leadingoff to the right. The fi rst one leads up to a red door with a handmade sign on it.The child-like scrawl on it reads: “Out of ORDER! override switch in myoffice—the Janitor”.Go further down thecatwalk and turn rightat the third path leadingfrom it to see a red barhigh overhead. Execute awallrun-turn-jump to grabthe bar. Swing and jumpfrom the bar to reach the elevated catwalk ahead of you.64Turn right and gothrough the red doorat the end of thecatwalk to enter thejanitor’s office, whichcontains a rat in acage, a first draft ofthe “out of order”sign with misspellings, a reminder to “feed Scruffy” (the rat, presumably), ahand-drawn “Janitor of the Month Diploma,” and an illustration that seemsto indicate that the janitor believes his red doors are being smashed openby some sort of circus freak muscleman. Most importantly, it also containsthe override switch for the door below. Activate the switch, drop back toground level, and go through the now-open door.This leads out to thetrain tunnels. Waituntil a train passes byin front of you, andthen run down thetunnel after it. Youneed to move quickly,because if you arein the rounded tunnels when a train comes…well, you’re going to be a lotthinner, let’s just put it that way.As you pass some stairs to your right, Blues start entering the tunnel behindyou. Ignore them and keep running forward until you reach a chain linkfence on your right. Go through a gap in the fence to reach a red ladderleading up to a catwalk.PR I M A OF F I C I A L GA M E GU I D E

Pro-TipAn even faster way to get up to the catwalk is to stay on theleft side of the tunnel and make a wallclimb-turn-jump froma section of the wall to land directly onto the catwalk withouttouching the ladder.Climb theladder andmake a runningjump fromthe catwalkto grab a redbar overhead.You need totime the jump carefully so that you don’t vault the catwalk’s railinginstead. You should also wait until a train has passed under the redbar so that you won’t run the risk of being hit if you miss the bar.Swing and jump from the red bar to another catwalk with a reddoor. Go through the red door to enter the cooling junction for thesubway. Drop off the catwalk that you enter on to reach the groundfl oor. Crawl through a tunnel and into a large room with several hugefans. Turn right, go up some stairs, and climb a red ladder inside asmall alcove.Pro-TipYou can bypass this ladder as well with a wallclimb-turn-jumpup to the catwalk.The laddertakes you upto a landingthat overlooksa red bar. Runand jump fromthe landing tothe bar, andswing and jump off the bar to reach another landing in the middleof the area.CHECKPOINT FYou’re almost home free. Merc gets on the comm and tells youto use the trains to get away. Walk out onto the catwalk thatextends over the train tracks.

If thelarge fans on the left side of the platform are still off, crawl betweenthe blades to get to the other side. If the fans are moving, don’t try it,or you’ll have to start over from the beginning of the area.CAUTIONYou need to reach these fans on the first try after hitting theemergency ventilation cutoff switch. If you miss the jumpand fall to the bottom of the area, you need to hit the switchagain and make another attempt.NOTEThere are three fan blades inside the fan tunnel, but only thefirst one rotates. The other two remain still, even after the cutofftimer expires.Stand inthe middleof the trainand watchout for obstacles hanging down from the top of the tunnel. If there’s one on the right side ofthe tunnel, move to the left side of the train, and vice-versa. Getting hit by one obstacle willknock you for a loop. Getting hit by a second could knock you out cold or send you flyingoff the train.

Atthe end of the catwalk,vault another concretebarrier and jump off it to grab a red bar. Swing and jump off the red bar tograb a second one, and then swing off this bar to reach another section ofblue catwalk.CAUTIONYou have to move quickly from one bar to the next, becausethere are three SWAT cops below you who open fire as soonas you start swinging across them. You have to leap from eachbar on the fi rst swing to avoid being filled full of holes andhaving to start over.Turn and run up thestairs on the bluecatwalk to reach thetrain tracks. You aresafe from the cops uphere, but not from thepolice chopper thatswoops in and opensfire. Avoid the trains coming from either direction by staying between thetwo sets of tracks as you turn left and run toward a red zipline to the right ofthe overpass.There are two waysto reach street levelfrom here.

C H A P T E R 7: T H E B O A TCHECKPOINT BWhen you hear the truck’s engine turn off, run toward the back door of the truck to push it open. Immediately run forward and disarm the SWAT cop frombehind to get his machinegun. It is possible to proceed further to the next areawithout shooting any of the four additional SWAT cops ahead of you, but doingso requires great speed, skill, and a bit of luck.Your better option mightbe to shoot the next copwith the weapon seizedfrom the first one, andcontinue this patternwith the remaining copsuntil you take out theone armed with a heavymachinegun at the far endof the parking deck. Use the cars and steel beam supports as cover as you move carefully from one cop to the next.Once all five SWATcops are down, youneed to move quickly.More SWAT copsare on their way andapproach from theopposite end of theparking deck. There’sno need to fi ght these cops. Instead, get up on top of the white truck to theleft of the heavy machinegunner and climb up the vertical red pipe near it toenter the rafters, which protect you against most gunfire from below.Pro-TipAn even faster way to reach the rafters is to wallrun behind the trucksand jump to land on a green girder. Immediately turn and jump to landup in the rafters.HIDDEN BAGIn the rafters, it’s almost impossible tomiss the second Runner Glyph on oneof the ducts ahead of you. To fi nd thebag, get on top of the L-shaped ductleft of the red pipe (as you face the redpipe). Crawl to the end of the red pipe tofi nd the hidden bag next to some graffi tithat reads, “Are the trackers organizing?Is anyone?”From the top of the red pipe, crawl forward through the rafters and followthe path right to reach a red ladder. Climb down the ladder (or drop throughthe opening and skillroll) to reach the next section of the parking decksafely. There are four more SWAT cops down here, three with machinegunsand one with a heavy machinegun.You need to take downat least three of theseSWAT cops, especiallythe one with the heavymachinegun. Theeasiest way to do it isto go through the rightdoorway of the smallroom at the bottom of the ladder and disarm the SWAT cop beyond it. Onceyou have his machinegun, use it against the next two SWAT cops at theother end of the parking deck. Use the small room with the red ladder ascover, as well as the parked cars outside it.You absolutely mustdisarm or kill theheavy machinegunnerbefore you canproceed to theventilation room doorbehind him. Turn thered handle on the frontof it to open the door and continue through another ventilation room doorwith a red handle.CAUTIONIf you don’t take out the heavy machinegunner, he will cut youto pieces while you struggle with the door’s heavy handle.Go through the open door in the next room and shimmy along the dark,insulation-lined corridor on the right side of it. After you slip past a verticalduct, look up to spot an open window into the next part of the ventilationroom. Pull yourself up into and through it.88PR I M A OF F I C I A L GA M E GU I D E

CHECKPOINT CClimb up the vertical red pipe in the corner of the room and jumpleft from the top of it to grab onto a duct. Shimmy left along theduct for quite a while, and then turn around to jump to a red barhanging high above the room. Swing from that bar onto anotherduct on the opposite wall.Jump from the duct onto another redbar hanging overhead. Shimmy left ifnecessary to line yourself up with the redduct opening on the distant wall, and thenswing and jump to reach the duct belowit. Pull yourself into the duct opening anddrop through the other side, skillrolling toavoid injury.As you enterthis room,Merc says thatanotherTracker, Drake,has a Runnerin the area, andhe says he’sseen the assassin on the deck of the top deck of the boat. Run to theend of the yellow catwalk on the ground floor, face the yellowwarning sign on the metal grate next to it, and then wallrun-turnjumpup that grate to grab the red edge of a ledge overhead.Shimmyaround thecorner of theledge. As soonas you turn thecorner, turnand jump tograb anotherred ledge. Shimmy left along that ledge and jump left to grab theedge of a duct. Turn around and jump to grab another duct, and pullyourself up onto this duct.This nextjump is oneof the trickierones you’vehad to makeso far: Pullyourself uponto the yellowcorrugated platform above the duct, and then run along the top ofthe duct next to it. Wallrun-turn-jump from the end of that duct tograb onto the edge of a duct near the ceiling.

C H A P T E R 9: T H E S H A R DCHECKPOINT BCAUTIONThere are several ways to deal with the Blues in the parking garage.This is the fastest and most efficient way to kill them all. You can alsomake a break for the elevator at any time, but you almost certainlyneed to at least disarm the heavy machinegunners before you cansafely reach the elevator.As soon as you enterthe parking garage,turn left to face twopatrol cops. One is onthe other side of somered pipes, and theother kicks down adoor in front of you.There is also a heavymachinegunner to your left at the end of the parking garage; you don’t wantto remain in his line of sight any longer than you absolutely have to. Runtoward the red pipes, slide under them, and disarm the patrol cop.Alternate MethodHere’s an even faster (but moredangerous) way to reach theelevator: Start by disarming thepatrol cop on the other side ofthe red pipes. But instead ofgoing up the Level 1B stairs,smash through the red doorlabeled “Level 1A.”Run forward and slide throughthe small opening at the endof the room beyond. Shoot toshatter the glass wall betweenyou and the elevator, runstraight to the button and pushit, and run into the elevator. Ifyou execute it perfectly, youcan reach the elevator in 10seconds, but if you make the slightest mistake, the Blues will makeyou pay for it.Continue runningforward and up thestairs labeled “Level1B.” Smash throughthe door at the top ofthem and use thepatrol cop’s pistol toshoot a SWAT copbeyond the door. Pick up the SWAT cop’s machinegun.From this level, youcan look down on andshoot the second patrolcop and one of the twoheavy machinegunners.Pick up the heavymachinegun afterdoing so and use itagainst the two SWAT cops in front of the elevator and the second heavymachinegunner in the corner of the parking garage. This eliminates thepolice presence in the parking garage. From start to finish, it should takeyou no longer than 45 seconds to do so.Approach the elevatorby going through thedoor at the far end ofthe parking garage, orby making your owndoor by smashingout one of the glasspanels that surroundit.

From nearest to farthest, you have to dealwith two riot cops with submachineguns, two SWAT cops withmachineguns, and a third SWAT cop with a heavy machinegun.You could take out all fi ve of them by disarming one of the riotcops and going from enemy to enemy, shooting them with theprevious foe’s weapon and seizing a new one when they fall. Butthere’s a faster and better way to do it.W W W .PR I M AGAM E S .C O M103

C H A P T E R 9: T H E S H A R DHIDDEN BAGThe second hidden bag is inthis lobby. To reach it, run alongthe right wall as you enter andspringboard off a red chair nearthe Runner Glyph stenciled ontothe wall.This gets you up to an isolatedbalcony with the hidden bagon it. Pick up the bag and vaultover the railing to return toground level. You might wantto eliminate all the cops exceptthe heavy machinegunner beforeattempting to grab this bag.The fastest and easiestway to get to theelevator at the otherend of the lobby (yourdestination) is to runinto the near rightcorner of the lobby,ignoring the riot copsthat charge at you.Run up the stairs to the upper walkway above the lobby floor and run all theway to the end of the walkway.Vault over the blackrailing at the end ofthe walkway and turnleft. Charge the heavymachinegunner, keepingcover between thetwo of you as muchas possible. Disarmthe gunner.Use the gunner’sheavy machinegunagainst nearby cops,or simply drop it,turn around, andpress the elevator callbutton. Run into theelevator and ride it toescape the lobby.OBJECTIVE COMPLETE✓ Complete: Get through the lobby and use the elevator to reachthe upper levels.CAUTIONIf you eliminate all five cops in the lobby, reinforcements arrivevia the door you entered through. (Apparently Miller couldonly hold them off for so long.) For that reason, you mightwant to leave at least one of the five cops alive, rather thanhave to deal with several more.As you ride the elevator up toward the roof, it suddenly comes to a halt. Avoice orders you to drop any weapons you have, stay where you are, andprepare to be taken into custody. Here’s a better idea: Press the blinking redemergency button to open the emergency hatch in the roof of the elevator,and then pull yourself up to the top of the elevator car.CHECKPOINT DFrom the top of the elevator car, make a running jump to the landing across theelevator shaft. Climb down the red ladder to reach a lower landing.Pro-TipIt is possible to reach the bottom of the elevator shaft safely bydropping directly down to the red bar below and swinging fromthere to the next bar and landing on the balance beam, but this is anextremely tricky technique for elite Runners only.Turn around at the bottom of the ladder and jump to grab a red bar that stretchesacross the shaft. Swing and jump from it to reach another landing on the opposite side of the shaft.104PR I M A OF F I C I A L GA M E GU I D E

Turn aroundand jump downto a catwalkthat extendsacross theelevator shaft.From there,jump forwardonto a vertical red pipe, and then slide all the way down the pipe tothe next landing.Carefully walk across one of the beams that extends from thislanding to another landing on the other side of the elevator shaft,and then climb the red ladder leading up from that landing.From the topof the ladder,shuffle rightalong thenarrow ledgeto reach twovertical redpipes. Climbup either one of the pipes and turn around. Jump from the top of thepipe to the U-shaped red bar in front of a red-lined duct entrance,and then jump into the duct entrance.Pro-TipYou can bypass the ledge walk by making a running jumptoward the wall, which turns into a wallrun when you hit it.Jump again to get off the wall and land safely beyond the ledge.Crawl towardthe amber lightthat indicatesthe other endof the duct, andthen drop fromthe duct onto aplatform belowit. (It can be tricky to see in the dim light, but it’s there.) Turn rightto see a narrow, seemingly bottomless passage with two red barsstretching across it.Wallrun along either of the passage walls to grab the first red bar.Swing and jump from it to grab the second one, and then swing andjump from that red bar onto the duct below you that stretchesforward.Run forwardalong theduct, passingunderneath athird red bar.Wallrun-turnjumpfrom thewall at the endof the duct to grab onto the red bar. Swing and jump from it to landon another duct that stretches across the passage. Turn left and jumpto pull yourself up onto another duct above it.W W W .PR I M AGAM E S .C O MCHAPTER 9: THE SHARDPro-TipThere’s a faster way to get through here: Instead of droppingdown to the darkened platform, use a wallclimb-turn-jumpinside the vent to reach a higher level of it and access a routethat takes you across the top of the area quickly via bar swingsand wallrun-jumps.Run to the endof this ductand jump toreach a landingat the end ofthe passage,and followthe passagearound a corner to see the entrance to another duct. Crawl inside,turn right, and crawl forward until you can’t anymore. Pull yourselfup over the obstacle ahead of you, and drop down from the otherside of it, skillrolling to avoid injury.HIDDEN BAGPackratWhen you drop down, you cancontinue to the right or left.Choose the left duct to reach thethird Runner Glyph. Stand withthe glyph at your right side andwallrun-turn-jump up the ductto reach an upper part of it andsome graffiti that reads, “Whereis November???”, a reference tothe November Riots.The bag is just beyond thisgraffiti. Pick it up, drop backdown to the Runner Glyph, andbacktrack to the last junctionto continue.If you have collected every hidden bag in everychapter so far, you earn this Achievement/Trophyfor collecting this last bag, the 30th and finalhidden bag.Crawl forwardand jump tograb the ledgeof a ductabove you.Pull yourselfinto it andkeep crawlingforward. Drop down at the end of this section of ducting, skillrollingto avoid taking damage, and follow the duct all the way to the end.Miller tells you that he can see you, and that there’s a sniper teamguarding this area. If you can get past them, you can get back intothe Shard.INTRODUCTIONTRAININGCHARACTERSENEMIESWALKTHROUGH◗ PROLOGUE◗ CHAPTER 1◗ CHAPTER 2◗ CHAPTER 3◗ CHAPTER 4◗ CHAPTER 5◗ CHAPTER 6◗ CHAPTER 7◗ CHAPTER 8◗ CHAPTER 9TIME TRIALSTRETCHESQUICKREFERENCEDICE STUDIOPROFILE105

C H A P T E R 9: T H E S H A R DCHECKPOINT FRun through the office hallways to reach a locked elevator near the reception desk. Lieutenant Millermanages to unlock it remotely. It leads to a server room for the Shard’s citywide surveillance system.From there, you should be able to access the roof and rescue Kate.As you ride up, Miller says that the security doors to the roof are closed. If you can destroy the servers, the emergency protocol should automatically unlockthe doors. Faith has to hurry, though—there’s a chopper arriving momentarily to take Kate away. Miller tries to give you more information, but a gunshotechoes through the comm, and the line goes dead.There are four SWAT cops armed with machineguns in the server room, as wellas one SWAT cop with a heavy machinegun. All the cops are on the elevatedwalkway in the middle of the room. The servers are grouped in four clustersaround the walkway.You could take the direct approach and disarm and/or shoot the SWAT cops asyou move forward into the server room, but there’s an even better way to do it:108Ignore the first twoSWAT cops that rushat you. Instead, runaround the right or leftside of the elevatedwalkway and past aserver cluster. Thetrigger-happy copsmight even shoot the clusters for you, saving you some time. Run aroundthe back of the elevated walkway and run up the stairs to reach a SWAT cop.Disarm the SWAT cop,take his machinegun,and turn toward theSWAT cop with theheavy machinegun.Shoot him and theSWAT cop behindhim. Pick up the heavymachinegun and blast any remaining servers, as well as the other two SWATcops, if you’re so inclined.You’ll know thatall four servers aredown when youhear the automatedwarning system say,“Warning: All fourbanks have failed.All four banks havefailed. Appropriate emergency services have been notified.” That’s your cueto run up to the highest level of the elevated walkway and go through thenow-open security doors at the top of it.OBJECTIVE COMPLETE✓ Reach the server room and destroy the servers to open a pathto the rooftop.Break through the reddoor labeled “VideoSurveillance 05”and run through thehallways beyond inthe only direction youcan. Run through anopen door and climbseveral sets of stairs.

CHECKPOINT GWhen you reach the roof, a cinematic begins. Jacknife has Katebound and held at gunpoint with a waiting chopper behind them.Faith demands to know who’s behind all of this. Without comingright out and saying it, Jacknife strongly implies that MayorCallaghan is the mastermind. The strategy was classic: Break thelines of communication, shoot the messengers. And this is justthe beginning.CHAPTER 9: THE SHARDFaith swings into the chopper andsends Jacknife flying out of the otherside with a powerful kick. He fireshelplessly into the air as he fallsto his much-deserved demise. Theshots didn’t hit Faith or Kate, but they did damage the chopper, which bucks wildly. Kateslips out the side of it and barely manages to grab the edge of a rooftop. Faith jumps afterher and pulls her up in the nick of time as the helicopter crashes below.Jacknifeforces Kateinto thechopper and thanks Faith for ferreting out all the suspicious loose ends surroundingPope’s assassination. That’s why she’s still alive. Jacknife tells Faith that she can’t live onthe edge all her life. Sooner or later, she’s going to have to jump.Faith turns around and sees two SWAT cops behind her. It’s now or never. As soon as thecinematic ends, run straight forward, vault the two rows of crates ahead of you, and jumpfrom the very edge of the helipad to grab the chopper.That’s a Wrap:Complete the game on any difficulty level to receivethis Achievement/Trophy.INTRODUCTIONTRAININGCHARACTERSENEMIESWALKTHROUGH◗ PROLOGUE◗ CHAPTER 1◗ CHAPTER 2◗ CHAPTER 3◗ CHAPTER 4◗ CHAPTER 5◗ CHAPTER 6◗ CHAPTER 7◗ CHAPTER 8◗ CHAPTER 9TIME TRIALSTRETCHESQUICKREFERENCEOBJECTIVE COMPLETE✓ Save Kate.DICE STUDIOPROFILENOTEIf you completed the game for the first time on Easy or Normaldifficulty, Hard difficulty is now available.W W W .PR I M AGAM E S .C O M109
