well i dont have a pic of it right now but what i did is i went to one of the far jail cell kinda rooms (whatever they are) and i set a turret in the corner right outside the door so it couldnt fall over. the 2nd one i put behind a pillar to cover it from behind. and for the third, i decided to get a little tricky. i picked it up and backed into the room to cover myself but i let the turret hang out. this way it could shoot them but they couldnt knock it over since i was holding it. :lookaround:
i did the same thing as ZAKATAK works REALLY good
i used god mod i died 5 times and get sick of it
First time I played the game, I hid in the dark empty cell with the 3 turrets in there with me, using the gravity gun to dispose of any grenades quickly. Worked pretty well.
Second time round though, I played on hard and I guess I was kinda sneaky. You know the first time you have to set up a couple of turrets to defend yourself? When I was finished up there, I used the gravity gun to carry and fling the turrets all the way to this part that you guys are talking about now. So instead of having 3 turrets now, I had 5!! Much easier, trust me. But wait, there's more. After I finished up in that part, yep, I did it again. Lugged the 5 turrets all the way to the portal room didn't I? I now had 8 turrets instead of 3 in there - that was 2 for each doorway where the soldiers could come in. Not one turret ever got knocked over.
And you know, it's not even that far between each point where you have to use the turrets, so taking them with you won't take you that long. They'll even take care of a few zombies and soldiers for you along the way.
well wut i did and i sound crazy but i stayed in the room with the turrets then i set up two turrets and they both were knocked down a grenade and knocked one to the corner and then the turret would shoot it in the side and all i did was shoot them guys that came behind and shot some of the guys who came to the turret but i ended up with low health but i did it.
I didn't make it!
the point of the question was not how to die. This is a bug that I'm experiencing as well which allows the audio to continue but you no longer see any soldiers. You can hear Alyx in your headset warning that more soldiers are on the way but none ever come..zero. She then tells you she's on the way but never arrives. At first I thought I had to get out of the prison somehow on my own but no that is not the case. I just need some freeking soldiers but alas, they won't come unless I reboot and start at the previous level at the end of Nova Prospeckt. All instances of saved games past that point exhibit the same problem. Good luck!!
If you put the turrets on the corners by the entrances and put crates in front of them, the soldiers can't knock them down and they just get shot when they try to get near, since they don't seem to realize there's an obstacle between them and the turret. Just watch for grenades, pick them up and toss them back.
