This may seem like a stupid question, because APPARENTLY the cannon to "launch the gnome into space with" is just so incredibly easy to find that the only hint into locating in on cheats websites is "Be sure to close the hatch, or the achievement won't register." The idiot user that posted that didn't even mention where it is! I found the gnome, but where's the f*cking cannon???? I looked everywhere. I don't have the PC version, because my so called "powerful computer" can't even handle games like F.E.A.R and HL2: Episode 1 without lag, so I have the 360 version. (If this helps)

When you first find Kleiner and Magnessen they are working on the rocket. You will find an open panel at this point, on the rocket - place the Gnome inside this open panel.

At the end of the episode, when the thing is launched - you have your achievement.

Holy crap are you serious that I have to carry that thing all the way to the end of the game??? (Well not really the very end) But I guess I could just use the invincibility cheat and run the whole way (lol). I know what your talking about I just thought the "cannon" would be somewhere nearby. I always thought that the hatch was just so you can see Lamarr in it. Yay should be fun... sounds like it'll be pretty freakin hilarious when I get it though. Thx Hocking.

Yeah, what most will do is carry it with the grav gun and drop it every time you need to fight. You can quite easily pick it up again. The only challenge really, is that you cannot carry it in the car.

Yeah, it's a pain in the ass. And if you use invincibility mode, it disables achievements, so even if you do it, the achievement won't be unlocked.

Some have claimed that it's possible to play the game up to the point where you find the rocket door and then back track all the way to the gnome. At which point you can quite happily wonder back with him minus the danger of being attacked.

Watch for the way to put the Gnome in the Jalopy (car) at 01:38.

Can't you just respawn the gnome at the end with the console?

The real point here is that it was stupid to make you carry the thing the whole way through the game. It would be different if you had a backpack that you could stuff it in. I would have settled for the trunk actually working so you could put in there. Even cooler would have been duct tape so you could make it into a hood ornament.

I am playing it right now and I'm glad you posted that video because I was about to leave the gnome on the side of the road. It is ruining what should be the best part of the game. It has already taken away from the game as is.

My opinion is that the developers did a half baked job on this part of the game. IMHO they put it at the beginning as a bit of payback to customers because of the way we talk on the forums when we get irritated. It's the only thing that makes sense. Only a moron would accidentally make it this way.
