Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 Written by Dalton "horror_spooky" Cooper Copyright 2011 Dalton Cooper Every single Harry Potter film has been adapted into a companion video game. Harry Potter is truly a worldwide phenomenon, with books, movies, video games, and just about everything else made from the Potter universe that J.K. Rowling created. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 is a video game based on the latest movie that actually has yet to release at the time of this writing. So, grab a wand, put on the Sorting Hat, and get ready to get some closure with the saga of Harry Potter! Even though I wrote this guide by playing the Xbox 360 version of the game, it is compatible with the PlayStation 3 and PC versions of the game. I am not entirely sure if this guide will also be compatible with the Wii or DS versions of the game, or the future Wii U version that has yet to be released.

Harry Potter and his friends Ron and Hermione are desperately trying to find a way to defeat the evil Lord Voldemort once and for all! The fate of the wizarding world is in the hands of the students at Hogwarts...will Harry Potter succeed and be able to keep the title of "The Boy That Lived"? I suppose you'll want to know how to actually controll Harry and his buddies right about now...

Things to Remember - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - There are multiple difficulties to play this game on. Not only that, but throughout the course of the game, new spells are unlocked as the storyline sees fit, and new characters are taken control of. There are no differences between any of the characters controlled in this game, so there are no worries there when it comes to having to learn a new control scheme or anything. All of the wizards controlled have access to all the same spells in the game. Similarly to popular shooters such as the Gears of War franchise and the Call of Duty series, this game uses a regenerating health system. In this game, when enough damage is taken, black smoke will surround the screen on all four sides. When the character you are controlling is nearly dead, the screen will become tinted in black and white. This means you need to get behind cover or press on LB to use a shield to quickly block any incoming attacks. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1 had Kinect support for the Xbox 360 version of the game. There is no Kinect support for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2. However, the PlayStation 3 version of the game DOES support the PlayStation Move peripheral. Scattered throughout the game are glowing blue orbs that unlock extra content to enjoy. While this guide does NOT point out the location of every single orb in the game, I do make it a point to make known the locations of quite a few throughout the guide that are a little bit more difficult to find. The main purpose of this guide is to get the player from the beginning of the game to the end of the game. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 3. Walkthrough - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - ------------------- 1. GRINGOTTS ------------------- Right off the bat, take a right up the hill. In the middle of this area, you will see a water geyser of sorts. There is a glowing blue orb next to it. Run over and grab it. This is a collectible. There are a total of four collectibles in this level. After snatching the collectible, backtrack back down the hill and then go down the left path towards Ron and Hermione. Walk with them towards the big closed door. The game will teach you about pressing back to lead you to objectives. Walk over to the blue glowing marker on the ground to open the door and head through. Run through the cavern. You'll then be instructed to take cover behind the rock next to Run. Tap A to do so. After the short scene, pull down on the left trigger to aim at the two guards. Repeatedly mash on the right trigger to take them both out. You'll also snag an spiffy achievement to do this. When they are defeated, go to the right, not the direction of Ron and Hermione to get another collectible. This will unlock a new challenge. Rejoin Ron and Hermione. Hang out for a minute while Hermione uses a charm to unlock the door. Head through. In this next area, there will be a mine cart track above your head. Take cover at the next slab of rock to avoid detection from the cart as it zooms by overhead. When the cart is gone, hold A to sprint towards the end of this tunnel. Go through the next door and defeat the two guards in here. Follow the tunnel. Sprint over to the end of the tracks and hold the back button to check out an event going on in the distance. When the trio are done, hang a right. You'll hear guards coming, so take cover at a rock. Three guards will come out of the door. Defeat them by spamming Stupefy like you've been doing. Go through the door after they're defeated. In the next area, the gang will get bombarded by a dude firing off spells at a quick rate. Hold LB to activate a magic shield. The enemy's beams will slowly destroy the shield, but it won't do it away completely. Keep walking forward and pushing through. When you get to rock cover, use it and then spam magic spells at the enemy to defeat him. Keep going straight to encounter even more enemies. Some will just use regular magical attacks, but others will use the rapid-fire ones. Use the shield to block those and push forward. Take out all of the enemies. Reinforcements will come, so take care of them, too, in the same fashion. With all of them defeated, a cut-scene will occur. Take cover at the bridge. From this position, take out the guards that are trying to attack Ron and Hermione. When enough have been defeated, one guard will fire a powerful spell at the bridge. This will effectively destroy the bridge and send Harry falling down to Ron and Hermione's position. Take cover and then pick off the guards in the distance one by one. If they get behind cover, don't be afraid to charge them with your shield activated as Stupefy does significantly more damage at close range. When all the guards are defeated, approach the door. It seems Hermione is going to need a little bit more time unlocking this door with her evil, demonic witchcraft, and she'll need to be defended. This isn't too hard. Just take out the few guards that try to stop her. She'll then open the door. Run through. There are two enemies in this next area that are on elevated ledges. They will shoot spells like crazy. Use your shield to block their spells, and then pick them off from the distance. Don't be afraid to get behind cover if you need to. There will be a couple of guards on the ground, too, so take care of them with blasts as well. When the coast is clear, keep following the path in the cavern. There will be a dragon surrounded by pillars. Use the pillars to avoid getting lit up by the dragon's fire. Just wait for the dragon's flames to blow behind one of the pillars and then run to the next. You'll probably be able to run by two at a time. When you get towards the middle, the dragon will destroy the pillar with his fire. This will create new cover for Harry. Sprint to the cover and tap A to get behind it. Despite the flames, hold LT to aim, shoot one of the torches to cause a series of explosions. This will stop the dragon's fire, and give you the opportunity to run behind the next pillar to the left. Level complete! ------------------- 2. THE STREETS OF HOGSMEADE ------------------- Run forward and defeat the enemies as they appear. Once again, it's virtually a straight-shot through this area. These next enemies are Deatheaters, and they are a lot stronger than the guards encountered in the bank. Some of them will have shields. Tap Y to equip the Expelliarmus and then shoot at them to disarm their shields. There will be a ton of Deatheaters at this section, so tap X to switch back to Stupefy and take them out. Whenever one uses a shield, tap Y and then pull the right trigger to get rid of it. Keep using this strategy until they are all defeated, and then walk up to the closed gate. The gate will open. Walk through the alleyway to come across another closed gate. You'll have to wait for Ron and Hermione to catch up for it to open. Then walk through. There will be two wizards in windows in the distance. They have powerful spells that will shatter Harry's shield with one-shot. Take cover and then spam Stupefy at them from a distance. If Harry takes too much damage, just get back down behind the cover to regain his health. Then return to spamming magic shots at them. When they are both defeated, run down the hill. Deatheaters will spawn behind our magical heroes. Disarm their shields, defeat them, and then walk up the nearby stairs. A bunch more Deatheaters will appear, but there's plenty of cover here. Defeat them with the same strategy as before. Now, time to get to Honeyduke. Sprint towards the door. The door will then explode, and a bunch of Deatheaters. Take them all out quickly and then run through the building. Outside, there will be a bunch of Deatheaters that appear. Take them all out, too. When they're defeated, go through the next building. Run up to the next door. Hermione will have to be defended yet again while she tries to unlock the damn thing. Defeat the Death Eaters as they appear. Hermione will then unlock the door. Head through. Defeat all the Death Eaters out here. When enough have been defeated, run to the marker in the middle structure. You'll have to defend this from more invading Death Eaters. Use cover, disable shields, and use Stupefy to do battle with them and defeat them all. Harry, Ron, and Hermione will then be attacked by a bunch of Dementers. ------------------- 3. A PROBLEM OF SECURITY ------------------- * * * * * * * * * * BOSS FIGHT!!! The Carrows * * * * * * * * * * Professor Snape will be guarded by The Carrows. This duo will stand right next to each other. They will shoot at Harry, and they'll also use shields. Just disable their shields and then spam Stupefy at them when their shields are down. To the right, there's a collectible to snag. Do so before you finish these guys. When enough damage has been dealt, one of them will be defeated. Repeat the process for the second one. * * * * * * * * * * BOSS FIGHT!!! The Carrows * * * * * * * * * * For some unknown reason, I unlocked the achievement for beating a level without dying at this point. So...there's that. Regardless... * * * * * * * * * * BOSS FIGHT!!! Snape * * * * * * * * * * You'll see a couple of more collectibles around here. You'll be controlling Professor McGonagall, so she moves slow, but it's worth it grabbing the collectibles. Snape himself is a really easy boss. McGonagall has Expulso at her disposal, which is essentially the Hogwarts equivalent of an Uzi. Snape will throw up a shield. Disarm his shield, tap B to equip Expulso, and then hold the right trigger to blow him away. He'll teleport around the area. Disarm his shields when he throws them up and then spam Expulso at him. Eventually Snape will start teleporting onto ledges. Use the same strategy against him. When enough damage has been dealt, Snape will use his wand to throw a table at McGonagall. Tap X rapidly to win the QTE and avoid taking damage from the table. Otherwise, just blast Snape to hell. * * * * * * * * * * BOSS FIGHT!!! Snape * * * * * * * * * * ------------------- 4. THE BASILISK FANG ------------------- Ron will lead the way through the tunnel using his flashli--wand. There may be a couple of spiders that will scurry around in the distance. Destroy them with Stupefy to protect Ron's dignity. Anyway, just follow Ron through the tunnels and then Ron will fall down...and his health bar will appear on the upper left corner of the screen. Keep following Ron in this area. Spiders will try to pounce on Ron. Use the shield to bounce them back and destroy them. Keep walking until the two of you come across a closed door. Stand back-to-back with Ron. Keep casting your shield to knock back the spiders, or spam Stupefy to destroy them. Ron will open the door and then walk through. Hug the right to snag another collectible. Then keep following Ron. Kill the spiders as they come and just stay in Ron's light as he slowwwwwwwly walks through the Chamber of Secrets. After you get your next checkpoint, hug the left this time to get another collectible. When the next spiders are encountered, Ron will tell you to use Expulso. Do this. You can kill them pretty easily with Stupefy, too, but oh well. Then continue to follow Ron to next locked door. Protect him from the spiders as he unlocks it. Keep following Ron. Kill them damn spiders. Keep following, defend him while he unlocks a door, head through. Turn around, kill the spiders as the door bounces up and down and refuses to close. When they're all dead, return to following Ron, right into a much more impressive area of the chamber. Run down to the end of the chamber and interact with the Basilisk skeleton. Water will then pour into the area. Use the left analog stick and hold it down to run away from the water. Debris will fall into your way, so just move left and right to avoid running into the debris. ------------------- 5. A JOB TO DO ------------------- You'll now be controlling Seamus! No, not the Celtic Warrior of WWE fame, the firebug from J.K. Rowling fame. Grab the collectible sitting in front of the fountain, and then run onto the bridge. Neville will be blocking your path. Ginny will then inform Seamus he needs to place six magical charges on the bridge to blow it to hell! So, go to the left. Take cover at the rock. A marker will designate exactly where you need to go. When Neville says so, run to the next rock where the marker is located. The wizards in the distance will be firing magic spells that can kill Seamus in one hit. Wait for the purple beams of magic to stop firing at Seamus to keep running from cover to cover. When you reach the base of the bridge, wait for the fire from the opposing wizards to cease, then tap A to place a charge. Fight your way down the cliffside. There will be Death Eaters that appear. Use your new Confringo spell to take them out. It's really effective and can destroy enemy shields easily. Just keep fighting down the cliffside until you reach the second charge and plant it. Fight your way down to the third charge now. There will be wizards from afar and they deal serious damage. Use Confringo to take them out. A few Death Eaters will zoom down to your location. Take them out as well, and then place the third charge. Fight your way along the cliffside. Yup, the CLIFF LITERALLY LEADS TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE BRIDGE, WHICH MAKES BLOWING THE BRIDGE UP IN THE FIRST PLACE A COMPLETELY POINTLESS AND MEANINGLESS TASK. Also, how in the HELL is Seamus supposed to get back across? Seriously, where is the logic here? This is unacceptably idiotic. Ugh. Well, my personal view on the current objective aside, you can shoot the torches next to the enemies to make them explode and kill them easily. Make your way to the next charge, plant it, and then start getting your way to the fourth one. Plant the fourth one. Fight the way to the fifth one. Plant it. Fight to the sixth one. Plant it. Take a couple of steps to the right to switch control over to Neville. As Neville, blast the Death Eaters from above until they are all defeated. This takes a long time, and it's boring. Don't worry about Seamus dying, as it is practically impossible for him to die during this segment. When they are all defeated, Neville will automatically move to the next location on the bridge to defend Seamus from above as he tries to make his way back to Hogwarts. This part is a lot harder. Seamus rarely stays behind cover, and as a result, will get absolutely destroyed by the spells of the Death Eaters. Do your best to pick them off. It will be a major pain, but just keep defeating the Death Eaters until they are all defeated. Neville will then run to the NEXT area he has to be to defend Seamus. You can now double tap X to equip a spell that works like a sniper rifle. This makes defend Seamus LOADS easier. With this spell equipped, taking out the Death Eaters from afar is a breeze. Just keep nailing them with this attack. If they throw shields up, use Confringo. Also use Confringo if there are two or more Death Eaters bunched up in a group together. Neville will then run to the next location... This time there will be a couple of Death Eaters that will fire back at you. Take these guys out first. They are located closer to the bridge and not next to Seamus. After all these guys are dealt with, turn your attention to the Death Eaters that are trying to attack Seamus. Spam spells at them until they are defeated. Death Eaters will then get on the bridge to attack Neville. Charge them and defeat them all. There's a collectible on this bridge behind some cover, so snatch it to unlock yet another challenge. When that is done, run back to Ginny. Run past her. * * * * * * * * * * BOSS FIGHT!!! Scabior * * * * * * * * * * This boss fight is unique in that it incorporates a QTE similar to how you escaped from the water in the Chamber of Secrets during the previous mission. Well, pulled down on the left analog stick to run away. There's no debris to avoid this time around, thankfully, so just focus on running...oh, and shooting. Scabior will be running behind Neville as the bridge explodes, and will fire at him. Use the right analog stick to aim the cursor over Scabior and then hold down on the right trigger to damage him and to keep him from damaging Neville. You can avoid his spells by moving left and right if you need to. Just reach the end of the bridge to end the boss fight and the level. * * * * * * * * * * BOSS FIGHT!!! Scabior * * * * * * * * * * ------------------- 6. A GIANT PROBLEM ------------------- * * * * * * * * * * BOSS FIGHT!!! Giant * * * * * * * * * * Tap B twice to equip Impedimenta. Lock onto the Giant and then blast away with it. The two knights in front of you will try to do battle with the giant. Spam magical attacks at the giant as much as you can until Death Eaters arrive. Do battle with the Death Eaters. They will stop appearing after the giant has defeated both of the knights. Backpeddal and spam magical attacks at the giant. Keep doing this until two more knights intervene to help you. Keep repeating the process detailed in the above paragraph until the giant's health is depleted completely and you're at the end of the bridge. Then use Impedimenta to knock the giant off the bridge and defeat him! * * * * * * * * * * BOSS FIGHT!!! Giant * * * * * * * * * * All is safe... OH WAIT NO IT'S NOT! * * * * * * * * * * BOSS FIGHT!!! Giant * * * * * * * * * * Snipe the giant from at the end of the bridge. Kill the Death Eaters as they come. Use the shield as much as possible. Don't bother shooting the boulders out of the sky that the giant throws. Just dodge them. Then return to attacking the giant with a variety of spells from a distance. Keep doing this, defeating the Death Eaters, and spamming magical spell attacks at the giant. The giant will eventually get close enough to do battle with a pair of knights. The giant will fight with the knights, and that's your cue to drain the remainder of his health bar. When it's at zero, tap B twice and then fire the Impedimenta spell at it to defeat it. * * * * * * * * * * BOSS FIGHT!!! Giant * * * * * * * * * * The Death Eaters will then charge from the bridge. Defeat it from your current location with sniping spells and Confringo. When enough of them have been defeated, a QTE will trigger. Press Y when prompted. Then tap on LB repeatedly for the next step. Finally, press Y one more time to send the giant falling back down into the water below. ------------------- 7. THE LOST DIADEM ------------------- Malfoy and his cronies are behind cover right when this level starts. Use your shield to block their attacks and then spam your own at them until they run away. Hermione, Ron, and Harry will then have a short conversation. When they are done speaking, a marker will appear. Press back to direct Harry's sight towards the marker. Walk over to it and then Harry's scar will start acting up. Hermione will clear the path. Head through this new path and go to the right to get a collectible. Malfoy and his cronies will appear again. Defeat them, then use the markers to direct yourself over the next obstacles and then go to the right to grab another collectible. Run over to the next marker and Harry's scar will act up again. Hermione will clear up the next path and then head over there. In this area, the enemy will be behind cover, in a bunker-like structure made out of shelves and books. Stay behind cover and spam Stupefy at him. Just keep hitting him with Stupefy until the structure collapses on top of him. When this is over, run over to the next marker to initiate another conversation. You'll see another marker on some rubble that you can walk over, so head over in that direction next. Once again, you'll have another bunker-like battle with Malfoy. Get behind cover and return to spamming him with Stupefy spamming. It will take a little longer than last time, but after enough damage has been dealt, the makeshift bunker will collapse on him. Turn around to see the next marker that points to where you need to go. Run over to it, and Harry's scar will go nuts before you can even reach it. Once again, Hermione will clear the path. In the next area, Malfoy and his buddies will appear yet again. Spam them with Stupefy. They will run away again. Go to the next marker. The scar goes nuts. Hermione clears the path. Yeah, you're getting the picture now, aren't ya? Go to the new area to trigger a cut-scene. Yaya, nother running away segment! And that's not me being sarcastic. I legit like these parts of the game. Run away from the flames using the left analog stick in the same manner as you have before. Just focus on running until a bunch of debris flies into the air towards Harry. Aim the cursor at these and then tap the right trigger to destroy the debris before it reaches you. Keep doing this as it occurs until you regroup with Ron and Hermione. ------------------- 8. THE BATTLE OF HOGWARTS ------------------- We're nearing the end here, if the title of this chapter wasn't any indication of that fact already. Well, run straight ahead. Don't bother going off of the path to the left or to the right. Just run forward to the next checkpoint. You'll then be bombarded by Death Eaters. Take them all out. Run forward, and then more Death Eaters will burst through the wall. Hang back and keep taking them out with magic spells as the Death Eaters swarm into the building. Hang back and defeat them all. When they're defeated, run through the giant hole in the wall they created. This next part is a giant man. You'll have to hold RB and use the left analog stick to Apparate all over the place to avoid the incoming fire. Use the shield as much as possible. Apparate across the gaps, and then do battle with the Death Eaters that approach you. Defeat them as quickly as possible. The spells coming from the Death Eaters above you are VERY deadly and you can't afford to take your time. With them defeated, Apparate to the next marker in front of the door to get another checkpoint. While Hermione is busy unlocking the door, snipe the Death Eaters that are hanging out on the roof and windows and stuff. Then take cover and snipe the Death Eaters that are across the way. Hermione will then unlock and the door and the three of you can head through. Go down the stairs. In this next hallway area, there will be a bunch of Death Eaters. Defeat them and run forward. More Death Eaters will burst through the wall so be sure to stay behind cover and take them out. With them defeated, take a right through the open door. Defeat all of the Death Eaters on the floor, and the swing the camera upward. There will be two or three Death Eaters on the bridge-like structure above. Snipe them. With them defeated, press back to point Harry to the next marker. It's located right in front of a door, so run over to the door. Yet again, Hermione will need you and Ron to defend her from enemies while she unlocks the door. Your first priority is to snipe the Death Eaters that are on the scaffolding above you. They have very powerful magic that can defeat Harry with just a few hits. When they are defeated, take out the other Death Eaters as they spawn in front of you. Be sure to stay behind cover as you do this. When they are all defeated, Hermione will finish unlocking the door. Follow her and Ron through the door to the next objective marker. Follow the staircases and defeat the Death Eaters as they appear. There will be a total of two collectibles that are in VERY plain sight as you are traversing these staircases, so don't miss them. Defeat the Death Eaters, make your way to the bottom of the stairs to regroup with Ron and Hermione. When you're back with your buds on the bottom floor, run across to the other side and take out the Death Eaters as you go. Run up the stairs where the marker is, and then there will be an open door leading to the next area that you need to go to. Run to the next door. * * * * * * * * * * BOSS FIGHT!!! Fenrir * * * * * * * * * * Get behind cover. Use the sniping magic to take out the weaker wizards. Fenrir will be firing green spells at you...the killing curse, if my Potter lore is up to speed (which it probably isn't). If you keep pulling on the left trigger, Hermione will automatically aim at Fenrir, in a manner similar to the Call of Duty games. Do this to find him. Blast the torches next to him to deal extra damage. If he gets knocked down from the torch explosion, spam attacks on him to deal as much damage as possible. It is possible that Fenrir will heal himself. Regardless, just keep laying into him with as much magical attacks as humanly possible to deal as much damage as possible. Keep doing this until Fenrir's health is about halfway depleted and he will flip out. Then return to spamming him with magic. When his health is all the way gone, Fenrir will heal himself yet again, back to bout half health. Watch his smoke fly in the sky to know where he's going to appear next, and then take advantage of that by laying into him with magical attacks. Don't let up. Deplete his health all the way two more times. After this, he'll heal himself to about quarter health. Charge Fenrir. Spam magical attacks into him as you draw nearer and nearer. Don't let up. He will be defeated shortly afterwards. * * * * * * * * * * BOSS FIGHT!!! Fenrir * * * * * * * * * * With Fenrir dead, you'll retake control of Harry. Make your way down the staircase built into the side of the island. Battle the Death Eaters on the way down and just keep fighting until you reach the bottom of the staircase to trigger another cut-scene and finish the level. ------------------- 9. SURRENDER ------------------- Sprint straight ahead to the bridge. A few Death Eaters will suddenly appear. Take them out with magic. Then keep battling down the bridge, defeating the Death Eaters as you go. For some unknown reason, the Death Eaters as you kill them during this section, die in slow motion. Well, just keep battling until you reach a downhill path. Defeat the Death Eaters as they appear on the sides and keep sprinting to the objective marker. Walk down the path in the woods. Four ghosts will join Harry as you walk through the woods. Keep walking as Harry and the ghosts talk. This will then end the level. ------------------- 10. A TURN OF EVENTS ------------------- * * * * * * * * * * BOSS FIGHT!!! Voldemort * * * * * * * * * * FIIIGHT! Spam magical spells at Voldemort while using the shield to block his incoming attacks. Just keep nailing Voldemort with magic until you deplete his health enough to trigger a short scene. Voldemort will then teleport all over the place with his black smoke. Like a demon from the Supernatural TV show. Wait for him to land and then return to spamming spells at him while blocking his offense. Basically, employ the exact same strategy as you did before. Voldemort will then be able to deflect a lot of your spells. Don't worry about it and just keep laying into him. Don't stop hitting Voldemort with spells utnil his health bar is completely depleted. * * * * * * * * * * BOSS FIGHT!!! Voldemort * * * * * * * * * * Get ready for a super difficult part! It's one of the running segments. The dark cloud of Voldemort will follow you. Just pull down on the left analog stick and run away from the cloud. Use the right analog stick to aim at torches on the wall, suits of armor, shelves, and what-not, destroy them, and this will help impede the progress of Voldemort and his smoke. You'll now take control of Ron Weasly. Battle up the stairs. Defeat the Death Eaters. Check the stairs on the lefthand side constantly, and eventually you will find collectibles. Keep battling up the stairs and defeat every Death Eater that you come across. Keep doing this. Stairs. Death Eaters. You know the drill. There is a small alcove on fire that contains a collectible. Battle your way to the next objective marker to end the level. ------------------- 11. NOT MY DAUGHTER ------------------- Now you're Ginny! Woot-woot. Defeat all the Death Eaters that appear. Run around the courtyard, defend yourself, and kill them all. More Death Eaters will appear. On the left side of the courtyard (facing the bridge), there is a collectible in the rubble. Grab it and then return to killing a bunch of Death Eaters. Just keep on killing them until they are all defeated and you get another checkpoint. Kill more Death Eaters. After they have been taken out, more will spawn, and you will get a checkpoint. Defeat the new ones that come, and then the battle will be over! Flee back into Hogwarts. * * * * * * * * * * BOSS FIGHT!!! Bellatrix * * * * * * * * * * Bellatrix is basically just like every other boss encountered so far in the game. Have Expulso equipped. Strafe left and right in the middle of this area and keep track of where she appears. Hold down on the right trigger to deal a significant amount of damage to her in quick-fashion before she has a chance to activate her shields or teleport again. Ignore the henchmen wizards in the background that have their shields on. When enough damage is dealt, the game will award you with a checkpoint. Keep damaging Bellatrix, strafing to the left and to the right, and using Expulso on her like no one's business. When enough damage is dealt, and her health bar is in the red, Bellatrax will try to throw something at Molly Weasly. Tap Y repeatedly when this QTE activates to destroy it before it can hit Molly and the battle continues. Bellatrix will do the same stuff as before. She'll teleport around, and she'll retreat to higher ground, too. Just keep laying into her with Expulso, strafing, and then you will be fine. Just keep attacking her until her health bar is completely depleted. * * * * * * * * * * BOSS FIGHT!!! Bellatrix * * * * * * * * * * ------------------- 12. VOLDEMORT'S LAST STAND ------------------- * * * * * * * * * * BOSS FIGHT!!! Voldemort * * * * * * * * * * Just spam a ton of spells at Voldemort. Don't bother using shields, unless you are playing on a higher difficulty than Normal. Just keep switching the different offensive spells at Voldemort until enough damage is dealt that he blows up a part of the scaffolding you're standing on. When this occurs, immediately go to the right to get a collectible. Then return your attention to Voldemort. Return to the strategy of just constantly using a variety of spells on him to deal the most damage. When Voldemort's health is taken down to there being only about a quarter left, another scene will happen. Deal damage from him. Try to use sniping attacks as much as possible since he is kind of far away. Yet another scene will occur. Charge Voldemort and grab the collectible to the right of him. Then hit him with more spells yet again. When Voldemort's health is depleted, another cut-scene will occur. * * * * * * * * * * BOSS FIGHT!!! Voldemort * * * * * * * * * * This QTE will require you to move the left analog stick to control the big spell beam. Try to keep the beam focused on the center of the screen, right on Voldemort. After doing this once, Harry will almost fire the beams righat him. However, Voldemort will be able to block it. Do it again. Then Harry will be able to best Voldemort. CONGRATULATIONS! GAME OVER! Hogwarts is safe! - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 4. Challenge Mode and Extras - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - There is a Challenge Mode in this game. Challenge Mode is where you can replay any level in the game (assuming you found the appropriate collectible in that particular level) and try to beat your time. The collectibles in the game also yield other content. There are characters that can be unlocked that operate in a manner similar to figurines in Resident Evil 5, for example. There are 10 characters as well as 12 musical tracks to unlock. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - 5.
