Power Up

  1. Sprint across the room ahead while avoiding soldiers and the alien. Walk around until you reach more enemies. Kill them, and continue into the doors ahead.
  2. Talk to the injured security guard. You’ll need to get the power on, but there are giant creatures ready to kill you. Head back out and move down the ladder. Keep moving until you reach a radiated room.
  3. Move up the ladder to the left and go to the third level. Open the door and destroy the turret to the left.
  4. There will be hostiles to the right. Kill them and continue down the hallway. Neutralize the next group of soldiers and go up the stairs directly ahead of you.
  5. Kill the soldiers to the left of the doorway. Jump down the stairs to the third layer and be ready to kill houndeyes. Head down to the bottom layer which will be flooded.
  6. Activate the red generator and head back up to the second layer. Throw the switch for Unit 1 in power control.
  7. Head back upstairs while avoiding electricity hazards. Kill the hostiles on the lift on layer 3. Use the lift to go up, and prepare to kill more soldiers.
  8. Open the door marked 3 and head back down in the radiated room to the first level. Keep moving forward and head up the ladder to where the injured security guard talked to you in the beginning of the chapter.
  9. Activate the button to the security door. You’ll need to get the train started. Exit the room and go to the tracks. A giant creature will be waiting there. He’ll immediately attack you when he sees you.
  10. Don’t try to fight him. Sprint along the left set of tracks. Near the ladder, move the plug into the outlet. There will be one more plug that needs to be moved on the other side of the ladder. Once they are both in, move up.
  11. At the top of the ladder there will be a button. Activate it and kill the creature with a static discharge. The creature will burn up, and you can move back down to the tracks.
  12. Follow the tracks back and get into a train. Drive the train down the tracks to the right, and exit to the left where there is a security guard. Talk to the security guard. Once you’re done, drive the train straight forward.

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.
