Omid and Christa

  1. When the two strangers call down from the freeway overpass, say you are friendly (you don’t really have any other options). After they ask you to come up, place the cursor on the ladder and head up.
  2. Again, since you’re a rock in a hard place, say you’re looking for some new friends. After Clem joins you guys, explain your story to win them over and then they’ll help you move the tanker.
  3. Look in the FRS truck and grab the roll of yellow tape in between the cones. Highlight the ladder with the cursor to introduce Omid and Christa to your friends. After everyone breaks off, walk past the ladder toward the train station.
  4. Inspect the signs once you reach the station if you want, then follow Clem around to the door. Inspect the open window above the door (which is locked), then use the cursor to highlight Clem and press X to boost her up through the window. Ask her to jump in to unlock the door for you.
  5. Prop the door open to let in some light. Once again, inspect the space above the locked door, then highlight Clem again and press X to boost her over.
  6. Uh-oh! Back away from the zombies and highlight the tool in the door to pick it up. Bash the first zombie’s head in, then follow the button sequence to kill the other one.
  7. Not another one! Quickly grab the keys from Clem, then move the cursor slightly to the left to put them in and open the door. Press X to open it, then shoot and kill the zombie.
  8. Answer Christa’s bitchy questions, then grab the blowtorch. Console Clem and head back outside. Talk to the group, then follow Omid up the ladder. Highlight the hitch on the tanker, then use the blowtorch. When you find out the hose has a leak, use that tape you found to patch it up.
  9. Use the blowtorch again to start working on the hitch. After you almost die, highlight Omid and press the O button to have him use the blowtorch.
  10. Oh Crap!!! You’ll earn an ACHIEVEMENT here, but you have bigger things to worry about. After Kenny gets going, highlight the blowtorch and press X to kick it over.
  11. Try to convince Omid to jump. He’ll be a puss about it, then when he does jump, he’ll fall off. As he and Christa come running up, highlight Omid first (he did just suffer a hard fall, after all) and press X to pull him up (Christa will make it on her own).
  12. Following the cutscene between you and Kenny, you’ll earn an ACHIEVEMENT and an exciting teaser for Episode 4!

I’m on #6 and after I push Clem over, I back up but for some reason I can’t pick up the tool, I just keep looking at it then I get killed. I’m using a mouse and I can’t seem to figure out how to use it for this part since on screen only gives me controller instructions. Can anyone advise what to hit using mouse and keyboard??

@TWDgamefan: If you’re referring to the part in the train station, you need to move the cursor right over the tool that is wedging the door open. Once it’s over the tool, the little hand icon should appear and then you need to quickly press the corresponding button to pick it up. I played this game on PS3, so I’m not exactly what the controls would be for PC. I hope this helps.

Your walkthrough says to use the spike remover and press X.. .I got the spike remover, there was no option for X at all, but there was for B, however it didn’t even work. It says he needs to break it open first. Other than that the walkthrough has been fine, but you should fix that, as it’s totally wrong.

You forgot a step. After starting the train you need to return to the cab and try t ostart to train to loosen the “rust and what not” before you can use the spike remover.

I managed not to get into a fight with him, no idea how though…

@Charlie, although this is rather a long time later – on PC, at least, you can avoid getting into a fight with Kenny by showing him the rag with his son’s blood on it and being sympathetic/diplomatic. I don’t know how the more confrontational speech options work out, but it does seem like the key factor here is showing him the rag.

This doesn’t affect the end of this part, though. :(
