In Berlin, for example, the charges can and will be in different locations. I am playing the game to find as many possible locations for these charges as i can, but i will not be able to find them all; i am only one person. If you've found a key item like a charge in Berlin, a barrel on the cargo ship, any miscellaneous intelligence item (they are randomized throughout the whole game), a codebreaker, a lighter, or any other piece of equipment in a different place that i have found them, or in a place i have not even looked, please feel free to email me. I will give you appropriate credit and put it in the walkthrough. Thanks for everyone's help! I am also working hard to get 100% completeness on all the intelligence items, but as they are in different locations each time you play, this is a real trick! An extra special thanks to the guys at Monolith who slaved for over a year to bring us this awesome game. Monolith, you rock. Announce the sequel, and i'll preorder it 2 years in advance :) 1.1 MISFORTUNE IN MOROCCO, SCENE 1 ---------------------------------- 'Where's the fun in that?' You have to shoot a bunch of assassins as they try and hit the civilian target. If you're nervous, ask Bruno to call out the shots for you. If you're cocky, tell him not to. When done, grab the ENVELOPE on the desk and the AMMO BOX and open the door. Go down the hallway and around the balcony, down the stairs. FUNNY CONVERSATION: audible from the balcony. There's also a LETTER on the far end of the balcony from the stairs. Note the window in the courtyard. Above it is a hook that you can later use the belt hook shot to get into. Don't use the window ledge next to it; it'll break on you. Up in the room is an ENVELOPE on the dresser. When you come out the door, you find you're in the room that the guy locked himself out of. Now, I've gotten a lot of emails about 'where do I get the belt hook shot thing?'. The answer is: you *cannot* get it the first time through. Later on, once you get to 'The Dive', you'll get it, and from that point on it will be considered 'unlocked'. You can then replay this mission and choose it as optional equipment. ----1.8---- TREVOR.BARRUS@airborne.com suggests: In mission 1.1 "Misfortune in Morocco", you can get into the open window (above the courtyard where the guys are talking about the American Girl) without the belt hook. Go to the balcony that is closest to the open window, and jump up on the ledge (save before doing this). From there, you can jump to the windowsill, and go into the room. That way, you get it all done on the first try. ----1.95---- Go through the door on the ground level and down the hall to Apt 12. Make sure to open both windows. You'll now have to shoot a bunch of thugs who will try and get you through the door/wood panelling. Switch to your pistol or an automatic you might have and hide behind the upturned bench for cover. Before you leave, grab the FOLDER under the desk. Hopefully you got the AMMO BOX on the way in. Go back to the courtyard and leave via the 2 blue double doors. They are unlocked now. 1.2 MISFORTUNE IN MOROCCO, SCENE 2 ---------------------------------- 'You look like you need a monkey.' FUNNY CONVERSATION: audible from the starting position, about a monkey. Kill the guy here, quietly if you can. Hopefully the other guards will not notice. However, it is likely they will. Here is where you learn a painful lesson: enemies can shoot through gates and fences, and YOU, for the most part, cannot. So either pick the lock, or shoot it off. Make sure you grab the NOTE tacked to the wall next to the gate. Kirk Bratvold (firstname.lastname@example.org) writes in: At the beginning, it's actually easier if you pick the lock BEFORE you kill the guy who is talking to the monkey salesman. This way, you can kill both enemies without having to worry about trying to shoot through the gate. --------- Go into the hotel via the rusted blue door. The hotel is circular in nature, so going right or left won't make much of a difference. Let us, for sake of being arbitrary, go right. FUNNY CONVERSATION: talk to the man standing next to the woman in the blue dress. Use the barrette to pick the lock on the door here. Go in and take the DOSSIER on the shelf. Follow the hall around to room 101, where you can find a LETTER hidden under the bed. There may be armor in room 103. Go past the toilette, past the girl at the soda machine, and halfway up the stairs. From here you should be able to hear another FUNNY CONVERSATION. Continue up the stairs and kill the guy in the red jacket. Go into room 204 and get the LETTER on the dresser next to the TV. There may be body armor in room 203. Get over to the balcony and over the railing. It's tough, but try to jump to the wooden ledge to the right. From there you can open the window to a locked hotel room. There is a BRIEFCASE inside. To continue on, go into the hallway between rooms 203 and 204. Go past the balcony into the patio. Grab the ENVELOPE on the bar. Continue past this to a courtyard. There is one guard leaning against a post, another patrolling at the far end of the courtyard, and a third with a submachinegun in the right tower. You can get the last one with the sniper rifle. Go past the courtyard. Head a little right, but not around the corner. FUNNY CONVERSATION. Shoot the guy, and then go over to the desk and get the FOLDER on the desk. Go through the hall past the desk and into the waiting room with the people. Get the DOSSIER near the guy at the window with the blue shirt. Now head toward the hall entrance; FUNNY CONVERSATION. Shoot the 2 guards and get the BRIEFCASE on the ice machine. Continue down the hall into the next courtyard-type-hall-thing. Shoot the 2 guards there. Grab the FOLDER on the bench surrounding the central plant and the BRIEFCASE behind the luggage cart. Note that there may be guards on the balcony above the central plant/bench area. Go through the open doorway and go right. Talk to the purple girl thrice; you'll get her to amuse the guards. Listen in for a FUNNY CONVERSATION. Then, go left and shoot the guard that patrols out the door with a sniper rifle (he is not always there). Get the FOLDER on one of the patio tables. Go in the door at the end of the patio/courtyard and down the hall with 2 guards. Proceed to the elevator room, and past it. Go straight at the T intersection. Note that there may be armor on the left. Follow the carpet until you see Bruno. This next part is a tough as you have to get to the guards and shoot them before they shoot the hostages. When possible, use the sniper rifle. Go over to the window and get the NOTE against the wall. You can return later and use the sunglasses to photograph the book. Return to the elevator room, shoot the guards, and disarm the bomb on the elevator door. Continue down the hall, shoot more guards, and disarm the next bomb on the conference room door. Quickly turn the corner and shoot the two guards before they murder the civilian. Continue back to the room with the guys standing next to the elevators and the luggage cart. There are more thugs and another bomb. Go further back and you will find 4 thugs trying to kill a guy. Wax 'em and go back towards the tourist desk and disarm the bomb near the phones. Go back into the courtyard; 2 more thugs and a civvie. Keep going back into the halls with the guest rooms in them (201, 202, etc) and you'll come across 2 more sets of thugs and civilians. Once you save them both, the level ends. 1.3 MISFORTUNE IN MOROCCO, SCENE 3 ---------------------------------- 'Oh! You are a horrible person!' Shoot all the thugs and go into the exit on the opposite end of the court- yard. Get the armor and DOSSIER on the bench there. Head right, past the sign, down the stairs, and get in a gunfight with the 5 or so guards there in the courtyard; or not, if you can sneak. Head towards the red door, and then around the corner. Go around the next corner towards the palm tree. FUNNY CONVERSATION audible from the balcony, about a monkey. Go around the balcony, left, and down the stairs near the blue columns, into the building. Head right, through the room with the carpet, out the other end of the building, and take another right. Note that there may be armor on the bench near the exit of this building. Get to the top of the ramp and go right, onto the wooden balcony. In the plants by the double doors can be found a LETTER. Then go back to the top of the ramp and towards the blue telephones sign in the building. Go in and grab the ENVELOPE under the telephone. Continue around, past the urn, to another room with a FOLDER on the floor. Go out of the building by going to the end of the hall past this room and jump across the gap to the armor by the melons. Find the LETTER under the table to the left on this porch. Cross the bridge to the other patio and find the DOSSIER under the table there. Head back down to the street, where the monkey guy is. Head up the dirt ramp near the monkey guy, go around the corner, and take a right onto the plank bridge. Up the ramp, and take a right. There are guards and a BRIEFCASE. Go through the next courtyard and up to where the guy knocks over the table. Go past this to the next courtyard and head left to the blue doors. Be careful, as the room has a couple guards in it. Go into the room, and be aware that there is a guy hiding behind the crates to the right. Get the FOLDER, body armor, and DOSSIER in this room. Continue on through the doorless doorway out onto the balcony on the left, and see if you can snipe some guys from here. When done, continue on down the hall that runs along the balcony and down to the street. Go down the stairs to the market stall to get the armor, and then dive into the water. Go along the canal. When you reach the end, go underwater and go right. Go all the way to the end of this canal, and get off on the right side to get a BLUEPRINT and an AMMO BOX. Go back up to the main courtyard and cross the broken bridge. Choose to capture the thug to get a FUNNY CONVERSATION. Just ask him nicely 3 times. Or, you can torture him. It makes little difference. 1.4 MISFORTUNE IN MOROCCO, SCENE 4 ---------------------------------- 'I will kill any man she leaves alive.' You start out at the far end of a field. Snipe some of the bad guys while you can. For fun, aim for the gas tank of the car. Go up to the tent to get an AMMO BOX. Then head left into the valley. When you see the next tent, snipe the guy in it if he's there. Then find the tent in the ruins on your right and get the ENVELOPE within. A car will pull up. Shoot the guy, or wait until he hits his own gas tank. There's body armor in a largish room nearby. Continue down the valley, past the minefield unless you have mine detector glasses. Out by the van in the minefield is a FIRE EXTINGUISHER, an AMMO BOX, and a BRIEFCASE. If you don't have the sunglasses, you can still get out there by going carefully along the left edge of the minefield. Good luck. Note that there is a NOTE tacked to the sign at the minefield gate. At the end of the valley is a large palace. The best way to get in is by falling down the well hole nearby. Fall into the water and then swim to the landing and wax the guy with the submachinegun. Get the LETTER at the bottom of the pool. Another guy will come down the stairs, so be ready for him. Follow the path to the top of the stairs. Go down the hall past the door to hear a quick FUNNY CONVERSATION. Go up, shoot the guys, and get the BRIEFCASE behind the chair. It may instead be by the open crate. Then, go back down the stairs to the door and through it. Get the DOSSIER on top of the crates. Cross the courtyard, watching for guards (there are many) to the locked door on the other side. Open it to get an AMMO BOX and body armor. Leave the storage room and head right, down the hallway, quietly. Listen for a FUNNY CONVERSATION, and one guard will actually kill another. Then you can ambush him. Cross this next courtyard and get the ENVELOPE under the tree. Head into either of the doors here; they lead to the same place. Go down the ramp to the gate and open it. Go behind the machine to get a BRIEFCASE. Go up the stairs for a FUNNY CONVERSATION. Wax the 2 guards and grab the LETTER on the balcony railing. Now either go back the way you came and down the hallway past the stairs to the courtyard, continue to the other side and then down the stairs on that side to the courtyard. Either way, you must go into the courtyard and leave via the doorway that is to your left as you face the gate. There's going to be one guard on your immediate left and 3 to the room on the right. When done, head right and out onto the balcony. Mission ends. 2.1 BERLIN BY NIGHT, SCENE 1 ---------------------------- 'Why must i be made to say such idiotic things?' Check below for Robo Chop's alternate Walkthrough for this level. Find your first contact somewhere out on the street. He's wearing a tan jacket. Then head for the payphone which is to the left of the guard house. Get the FOLDER there. Go into the building with the woman standing outside. Ring room 205. Go up the elevator, and knock on the door. Get the folder that is stuck under the door and then go back down to the street, and back into the alley near where you started. Go down the stairs to the bar and meet the guy there. Now go to the gate and talk to the guard. Before you go through the gate, grab the LETTER on the cabinet. Sneak into the compound and listen to the FUNNY CONVERSATION there. Wait for them to finish and separate, and then shoot one of them (hopefully without leaving the body in camera-shot). The garage should open and issue forth some guards. When you've dealt with them, go through the garage to the other side. If this does not happen, head over to the hatch on the left side on the patch of grass. Open or shoot the lock and go down. Follow it to the end, and then go up the ladder. Go to the little shack here and try and shoot the guy before he sets off the alarm, but don't leave the body in sight of the camera inside. Good freaking luck! After many many tries, i managed to do this once. Open the gate by pulling the lever here. Regarding this, Nicke Lekselius (email@example.com) writes: You had trouble killing the guard by the gateswitch without setting of the alarm in Berlin by Night("Good freaking luck! I've yet to do this without setting off the alarm. "). Here's how I did: Open the door and move out of sight. Throw a coin away from the door and wait for the guard to come out, make sure he doesnt see you. He will search for the coin with the back to you. Take him out your favourite way, sneak in and open the gate! ------------------ Also, Kerry Shireman (firstname.lastname@example.org) writes: Hey, I liked your FAQ on No One Lives Forever. I had a comment about Berlin by Night, Scene 1. It's about killing the guard in the shack to open the inside gate after you go through the tunnel. It is possible to kill him before he sets the alarm off and without the camera seeing his body. The first thing I do after coming out of the tunnel is pick off the tower guard across the way with my silenced 9mm. Then I open the door to the guard shack, barely crossing the threshold so he'll discover me. He goes apesh*t and runs for the alarm without drawing his weapon. Then I shoot him just as he gets to the alarm buzzer, but (obviously) before he trips it. I've been able to consistently kill him without setting off the alarm by doing it this way. The funny thing is the camera pans across where he lays. Who cares, it works! Even though I've been able to get through that piece undetected, it's still impossible to get through scene one without setting off the alarm. I can get pretty far though. After killing the guard in the shack and opening the gate, the ground guards inside the gate know where I'm at. I typically run back and take cover behind the fencing by the generator to the left of the tunnel exit. This draws fire from pretty much everyone. The action will draw both ground guards on the inside of the gate to go around to the outside of the gate, through the garage door and out the back door running right behind the two guards who hang out in the garage. All this and none of them ever trip the alarm. They just come out lined up like ducks. After the duck shoot I go back out through the garage, come back around to face the recently opened gate and stand about thirty yards in front of the gate entrance. I then take out the far tower guard directly in front of me. This is as far as I can get without tripping the alarm. After this is the last two tower guards and something like 4 ground guards and the 3 penned dogs. As soon as the next tower guard around the corner sees me, the alarm goes off every single frickin time. I have found NO way around it, but I just started playing the game so maybe I'll revisit it sometime. ---------------------------------------------------------------- James Garfield (email@example.com) adds: You did ask for suggestions/additions, however, and I noticed that in Berlin by Night, Scene 1 you mention shooting the guard in the shack and not being able to do it w/out setting off the alarm. I happened to get lucky and work out a solution: 1)Position yourself to the right of the door (as you face it from outside) and crouch. 2)Toss a coin down the concrete walkway back towards the door to the garage. 3)The guard will slowly walk out the door in "suspicious" mode. You must shoot him after he leaves the doorway but before he reaches the edge of the opened door. One shot in the head. Inside the doorway, his body will set off the alarm. Too far down the walkway the other guards will be able to see his body and will get quite wise to your presence. It has worked for me now half a dozen times. -------------------------------------------- Christian Malbeuf (firstname.lastname@example.org) writes: I know what you mean about that guard in the small guardhouse. If you want to get him without the camera spotting the body, simply walk on the concrete walkway in front of his door to get his attention ("What was that?"). Then stick to the garage wall and throw a coin in front of the door. He will actually open it and come out to investigate. One shot to the head. No noise. No cam. Also, the two guards at the very beginning of the mission can be dispatched with a simple throw of an explosive lipstick. They are killed where they stand, out of the camera's sight, and the garage guards somehow don't hear the explosion. --------------------------------- David Kramer (email@example.com) adds: I noticed in your walkthrough that you & a bunch of people have had trouble with the guard in the guardhouse on Berlin by Night, Scene 1. I had some difficulty in the beginning, but now I can get him out of the guardhouse every time, and I've been able to kill him without anyone else being alerted. I didn't take the coins on the mission, so I thought I was screwed, but then I tried flashing the flashlight briefly at the window in the door ONLY. Works like a charm. Now I do it crouched from the far corner partially covered by the fence or the stairwell, and can usually double tap him before he can shoot. (sometimes not, and then I get spotted). ----1.9---- Back to the place at hand, the guard shack... Proceed back around through the garage to the gate and through it. Follow the street until it comes to a gate. Go in the door by the gate. Get the LETTER on the table there and into the office behind it, where you can get an AMMO BOX and turn off security by hitting that big red button. Go around through the back door, and shoot the guards and the guards in the tower with the spotlights. Then head to the gate in between. Update on this scene! I actually managed to get through the whole thing without setting off the alarm once! I did get the 'exciting music' once at the end when i shot one of the guards and his buddy came to cover him, but i didn't get in any spotlights and had no bullets fired at me. So it can be done (on super spy no less)! But it isn't easy. That quarter trick took me 10 tries and i finally shot the guy by the gate with the Hampton Carbine because i couldn't get the timing of 3 rounds right. ROBO CHOP'S ALTERNATE WALKTHROUGH for BERLIN, SCENE 1 Robo Chop (firstname.lastname@example.org) writes in: After you bribe the guard and enter the main gate, the two patrolling guards begin their funny conversation. Both guards are standing by the van. They will begin their patrols once the conversation is over. I use this diversion to get to the hatch. I watch the camera until it starts panning away from me. I then creep along the edge of the outer wall until I get to the end. I then hide in the corner next to the building. The guards will still be conversing. The van and the guards are between me and the camera. I then wait for the camera to pan around again. I then sneak along the edge of the building with the van between me and the guards. I watch the second street corner camera before picking the lock to the hatch area. Speed is critical but the operation is not that difficult to do. Slipping past the third camera (in the hatch area) is not that difficult either. I then hop down the hatch. Leaving the hatches open in this Scene apparently has no effect on the guards. By the time you are in the underground pipe (the same one discussed in the first intelligence item of the scene) the guards have finished their funny conversation and have begun patrolling. At the end of the underground pipe, I pop up in another grassy area. I go directly to the gate house. I crouch next to the right side of the door. I pull out a coin. While crouched down, I open the door. (The door blocks the vision of the camera). Although the guard faces the door nothing happens because he doesn't see me. I then toss the coin on the path leading to the gate house. I quickly change to the silenced pistol. He comes completely out of the gatehouse to check the noise. I pop him with 3 silenced bullets. The camera doesn't see him because his body is completely outside the gatehouse. I sneak into the gatehouse and hide under the camera until it pans away from the gate switch. I then hit the gate switch and hide under the camera again. When it pans away from the door I sneak out. I then travel along the path back to the hatch. Halfway to the hatch I stop and face the gatehouse. You can see the tall guard tower which is located behind the gatehouse. I take aim at the guard and pop off 3 silenced bullets (with 2 bullets he shoots back at you. 4 bullets will cause a richocet and the alarm will be sounded; ditto for all the other guards.). I fire off my rounds when the guard patrolling on the ground is the furthest away from the tower. When the tower guard is killed the searchlight stops moving. I head back to the hatch and go through the underground pipe again. I pop up in the hatch area again. I crouch by the hatch door underneath the hatch camera. This time the two guards are on patrol. I watch until both are walking away from me (and the second street corner camera is panning away). I follow the second guard but stay by the wall so the second camera doesn't see me. The second camera will finish its cycle and start panning back towards the hatch before the guard finishes his walk. I sneak up behind the guard from the wall as he pauses at the end of his walk. With his back to me, I pop him with 3 silenced bullets (I've tried karate chops and the poisoned barrette but I've been unsuccessful in stopping him from shooting and causing the alarm to sound. The performance of either the karate chops or the poisoned barrette in NOLF has not been good so far. If you hit him with only two bullets he fires back at you. If you fire four bullets the fourth bullet often misses because the body has already fallen to the ground. The fourth bullet therefore causes a richocet which causes the alarm to sound). I then sneak down the street to the corner. The guard in the first tower is already dead. I watch the camera mounted to the outside of the gatehouse, race down the street and then stop underneath the gatehouse camera. I next use my sunglasses to zoom in on the guard behind the crates beside the second guard tower. I place the crosshairs on him. I immediately switch to the silenced pistol (without moving my mouse) and let off a volley (1 for head shot or 3 for body shot). He goes down. (Using the sunglasses in this fashion allows you to succeed with long distance shots with the pistol). I repeat this sequence with the guard in the second tower as well as the second patrolling guard. I then sneak to the street passageway leading to the next area. The tower in the next area will shoot immediately. The alarm sounds. All hell breaks loose. I shoot the tower guard. I then wait along the wall of the street. 6 guards will turn the corner and come directly at me. The 6 guards come at me in a straight line. I never move my crosshairs, I just keep firing and all 6 guards go down in no time.
