Forget About Freeman

  1. Talk to the security guard and listen to the radio. There is a power switch in the room to control a turret. Use it to kill enemies, and disable it when you want to continue.
  2. Kill the enemies on the road and move forward. Take note that the turret will also try to shoot you. Walk towards the doorway marked 38. Turn right and fight the enemies around the corner.
  3. Use the valve on the left to open a path to the sewer. Avoid the red lasers and destroy the sentry. Cross the sewers marked East and West. Crouch through the first west sewer and swim forward.
  4. Exit the sewer and find the bigger body of water. There will be another ichthyosaur inside of it. Crouch under the giant gear and follow the pipes. Crouch under the second gear and kill the soldiers in the next room.
  5. Destroy the turret and take the ladder to the surface. Turn towards the desert and walk towards the red office. Kill the soldiers in the area. Destroy the tank with your missile launcher. Move into the building marked with Lambda Complex.
  6. Turn into the security checkpoint area. Find the sentry in the back of the room and destroy it. Move through the door and into the lift. Take the lift down to the 4th floor. Run through the radiation quickly.
  7. Kill the soldiers by the stairway, but avoid the exploding barrels. Open the door next to the maintenance personnel sign. Destroy the parked tank and enemies in the room.
  8. Find the turret in the hall to the right and destroy it. Run passed the jeep and around the corner. Use the button on the wall to open the tunnel door.
  9. Enter the room with the Lambda sign. Enter the control room and throw the power switch. Board the giant lift and activate it.
  10. Start your descent on the lift. Neutralize any hostiles on the ground level. Move across the room and up the stairs to the next platform. Open the door and drop down to the dead scientist at the broken rail.
  11. Find the room full of shipping crates and be ready to kill the ninja enemies. Since they are very agile, it is easier to kill them with explosions. Move across the room and call the lift surrounded by staircases. Move up the lift.
  12. Walk across the catwalk at the top of the shipping room. Break through the crate full of boxes to the other side of the catwalk. There will be one metal door with a green light. Open it and use the lift to descend into the next area.

This “walkthrough” sucks. The character cannot even jump at all and many of the puzzles cannot be solved according to what this says. I have had to complete them using other means, such as stacking boxes up to get out of an area because the SOB can’t jump!

Now I am stuck in the sewage area at #15! BS!!! You can;’t avoid them and you can’t slow down! F this “game”

You can jump ( space then ctrl )

Missing out KNERD, just beat the game and had a lot of fun. the puzzles are headache level hard, but you’ve got to master the ctrl-space jump and shift-jump to solve the puzzles.

i found this walkthrough pretty strange , it seems to be mixed up with the original halfelife , i have got to lambada core and i am going around the cliff, up i go but cant jump any further , this part is not even in the walkthrough , and also agree it is not possible to jump some of the distances (and yes i do know about using the ctrl key) so you have to build a platform with drums and pallets , score out of 100 would be 30 , i wonder if this person has ever played the game ,

@Crusty,

Hey crusty! We’re here to help, but we’re going to need a little more information to solve this problem. Can you list which part of the Lambda Core guide is giving you trouble? Just a number of the entry is fine.

Sorry for the inconvenience! Also, make sure you’re using the Long-Jump Module when that becomes available in the Lambda Core, or Shift+Jump to make longer jumps when necessary. Many of the jumps can be tricky, but if you’ve still got problems, we want to help address them.

ok Kevin Thienhaus ,, fairs fair , first off i’m disapointed because Black Mesa is great in some ways better than original ,. OK where i am at present is “bm_c2a5c” up the cliff where i have to do a massive jump it looks like to get up the top , i will go back in my saved, to start of lamda core and find the long jump module , but from memory when you have passed that , you cant go back , if that is so then you should not be able to bypass it , i’m a bit confused on where the walkthrough is upto (as for me i’m always confused ) but it would be 13 onwards, and where is the part about going around the side of the cliffs ,, A bit of a ramble but i hope you get it

cheers crusty

#29-After activating the override, the water level will quickly rise. Swim towards the entrance and swim up to the ladder.

There is no ladder in the exit hole.

There is no ladder in the entrance/exit hole,so i can’t climb out!

@Jappy,

There is indeed a ladder — the first emergency exit from the sewers will have a broken ladder. Don’t fret, because if you’re going the right direction, toward the opposite side of the door you first dropping into the sewer from, you will find an exit with an intact ladder.

I love the game, but like the others, the character can not jump near high enough. If you could make him jump twice as high—-gosh what an improvement.

Try using your brain KNERD. You might find you actually enjoy gaming that way. Or you may just be better off just watching movies and fantasising you are the main character. This walkthrough is good to get a kick start on areas you get stuck on and Ive found it good. Gives you enough to keep moving but still lets you work stuff out for yourself. Good work guys.

I start generator, talk to the scientist, but after I reach that red button and press ‘E’ to start rocket, nothing happens.!!!
Please help me

@Faisal Aslam,

Can you pinpoint exactly in the walkthrough where you are having trouble?

If it is “Blast Pit” make sure to hit both red buttons. There are two, each in separate rooms.

This walkthrough is wrong, you don’t fight soldiers in this chapter

Kevin Thielenhaus

On July 1, 2013 at 2:37 pm

@Axale,

Can you tell me which chapter you’re looking at? I take pride in the accuracy of our walkthroughs, so if the information isn’t correct, it should be fixed.

In the original game, I thought I’d NEVER get the ‘Duck-Jump’
This one’s tougher but funses!
C’mon, KNERD

Where the heck have I been?! Just started playing this and its 2013??? I never got to play half life 1 but I loved 2 n da episodes 1n2. But yea. This blows the orange box copy away. Though the crouch, jump, sprint is taking some doin…lol.

Great walkthrough. up until the blast pit part. I restarted the generator successfully, and the scientist told me power was restored, so i went back to the control room to hit the “fire” button, but the button won’t work. any other switches i have to throw first? its gonna suck to have to go back through all that.

@levi,

Hmm! I believe you need to return to the missile silo with the tentacle monster. There should be another path to go down that leads to the gas pumps. Get those working, and I think you should be good to go.
