I have managed to go through all the levels without any help before this one.

Do you have some tips how to manage the second room "full" of enemy soldiers? I'm facing such a fire that it is impossible to kill more than three soldiers. I have used grenades, bazooka and all possible.

I am not sure which room you mean. It's either "the second room full of enemies" or "the second room, which is full of enemies". I think you mean the latter.

The tip I would have for you would be to use the rocket launcher, but not to stay near where you enter the room. Use two rockets for the first two Mercs that come around those pillars and then STORM the others. May sound insane, but it works for me. If you stay back the rocket launcher Merc will probably get you sooner or later, but if you storm ahead, darting left and right and shooting your rockets near the feet of any Merc you spot you have quite a good chance of making it. Don't stop moving, unless for reloading the rocket launcher behind a pillar. Turn Cryvision on except for when you reload. If you run out of rockets before you run out of Mercs, switch to the OICW and use it's grenade launcher as a poor mans rocket launcher in the same way.

Hope that helped.

The tips do not work for me.. maybe better continue with Doom I.

NOOOO! WAIT!!!! lol

I am sure some other people will give you their "way of doing it". Maybe one of those will work for you. You do know about the armoury on the left, just before you enter that room, don't you? In there you will find all the rockets and ammo you will need, plus health and armour (I think there's armour in there too, though I always enter the building with full armour and health).

Could it be you have very low FPS? Then it is a lot harder to shoot rockets (among other things) accurately because sometimes you push "fire" while running, but the game will only register it half a second later and you shoot the rocket into the pillar in front of you instead of where you were aiming at. Bad juju.

Ok.. I have tried it like 187 times AND it does not work. I have a brand new computer and full armor and 14 bazooka shots and this sucks. The bazooka brick kills me everytime.

Please kive me the undamage cheat.

There are many ways to do this part of the level.

Here is the 'OICW + RL' one:
http://files.filefront.com/AscensionThe_Fall_of_Fat_Cit...0134;;/fileinfo.html (http://files.filefront.com/AscensionThe_Fall_of_Fat_City/;4190134;;/fileinfo.html)

My own way of doing it goes exactly against this video and what Greg told you but it nevertheless works for me:
1) I stay behing the first right pillar,
2) I use NOTHING that goes BOOM (nades or rockets),
3) I use only OICW bullets but I aim for the head (headshot) to make a fast kill,
4) 'Headshooting' fastly any merc who is not behing cover allows me to know what is going on at any time, better than using explosives that splash everywhere and that doesn't give me any hint of who is dead or still alive.

Making it this way, I finish up killing all the bad guys, the RL merc included (and without getting any damage in REALISTIC difficulty level). BTW, I proceed the same way with the last mercs of the FACTORY level.

Again, what works for me doesn't necessarily works for Greg and what works for Greg doesn't necessarily works for me, but I'm sure there is something that should works for you, and this without using any kind of cheat.

There is also the sticky thread
*Single Player* Tips, Tactics and **SPOILERS** (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/452106891/m/858002217) at the top of the forum to help you.

Someone please help here.

Does anyone know of a good video that shows how to kill Kriegers antechamber guards?

If not I may have to finally download FRAPS and make one myself...

In the meantime, DIlpukka, there should be other solutions posted in the "SP tips and tactics sticky thread".

I'd hate to see someone not appreciate FarCry just because the final level is perhaps a little frustrating the first time around...(he he, a little...I almost ripped my hair out the first time in Volcano).

But believe me, it is possible and with good practise and a little talent you can win there almost any time. Some people will probably win ALL the time there.

Don't give up!

Where's the SP Guru when he is needed??

edit: Ahhhh, thanks reggo http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif . I am going to take a look at that video as well.

Thanks reggo http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I downloaded and watched them all. I play totally different than this guy. Maybe I will make a video myself one of these days, though probably not a whole level as I play much slower and this fast way of playing is not my thing. I would lose any feeling of "immersion" into the game playing like that. That's not to say he plays the game wrong of course. It's just not for me.

Someone in this forum once suggested trying to get through the bunker with the pistol only. Maybe that would make a nice video. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I made and posted these videos (http://gotfrags.net/goodbye/docsvids.htm) over a year ago, but they're still the most downloaded stuff from my website to this day:

Hey kudos to you Doc for showing your deaths, not like the rest of the vids where the instructor never takes any damage, LOL... I can relate a bit better, heh...

Yeah, those vids are quite stupid IMHO. They really don't teach much. I guess what I was trying to say in these is...if you go head on with any of this section (the elite guards in the front...kreiger and crew next...and the fatboys last..) you're going to lose...especially on realistic difficulty which this movie is at. Cover is the key to survival.

Thanks Doc. I enjoyed watching.

I did get through the bunker with the pistol only and it's easier than I thought. However, I don't know how it will be with FRAPS, as it lowers your FPS drastically I found out. Also, a 3-4 minute video I took was over 1GB. If I can make a video under 300MB with okay quality I will post it.

Try a program called Virtual Dub with the divx encoder to compress it. Then open the compress version with the Windows Media player and compress again by making a movie.
