We’ve Got Hostiles

  1. Move down the hall and watch the doomed scientist run through the laser. Blue lasers will explode on contact with anything.
  2. Crouch under the closing blast door and head towards the red lasers. Destroy the stationary turret without touching the lasers. Red lasers will activate turrets on contact.
  3. Kill the enemies in the next room and walk to the back. Jump over the next blue laser, or disable it by throwing an object at it. Stay clear of the explosion. Crouch under the next laser.
  4. Kill the enemies in the cafeteria and move down the stairs. Destroy the turrets by shooting the explosive barrels. Kill the next wave of enemies.
  5. Destroy the turrets in the back of the room and head through the next set of red lasers. If the turrets are destroyed, the lasers will turn off. Move through to the door to the storage area.
  6. Pay attention to the catwalk at the back of the room. Head up the stairs and chase the mysterious figure. The soldiers are here to save you, or more realistically, kill you. Kill the attacking soldier.
  7. Use the lift to reach the next floor. If you haven’t figured it out, the soldiers are here to kill the scientists. Kill all of the soldiers in the room. Move into the next area with barnacles on the roof.
  8. Move across the bridge without falling or getting caught by barnacles. Avoid the explosive and turret lasers in the next hall. The scientists will rush into the next room and be gunned down.
  9. Follow the scientists’ path and kill the hostile soldiers. Continue upwards until you reach the control room. Walk across the bridge into the next room full of hostiles. Reach the floor and use the lift near the fire doors.
  10. After a very slow elevator ride, you will be at the surface. Kill the soldiers and avoid getting hit with rockets from the helicopter. However, do not try to defeat every soldier. Instead, wait for the firing to slow down and make a break for it.
  11. Exit the building and sprint towards the bunker in the middle. Make sure you run as the helicopter is out of sight. Climb down the ladder in the middle of the bunker.
  12. After the shaft collapses, kill the soldiers hanging on the ropes and jump on the debris until you reach the bottom. Climb into the vents.
  13. Drop down into the hallway and kill the headcrabs. Move up the stairs and into the small workshop. Climb on the table to reach the vent.
  14. Move into the security room and talk to the scientist. Pick up the shotgun near the controls and listen to the scientist talk about the rail system. Exit the area through the silo doors.

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

F’n EPIC!

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.
