Parts One and Two are for EASY/NORMAL/HARD, but Part Three is for NORMAL/HARD only. -------- PART ONE -------- *NEW OBJECTIVE: INVESTIGATE DIGGING SITE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE DAM. *NEW OBJECTIVE: ASCEND TO THE TOP OF THE DAM. *NEW OBJECTIVE: DESTROY THE SATELLITE DISH. *NEW OBJECTIVE: DESTROY THE FILE CABINETS. *NEW OBJECTIVE: COLLECT THE TIME CRYSTAL. *Collect Sniper Rifle and Silenced Pistol. *Snipe security camera on Left building. *Snipe guard on Left building in the head. *Snipe multiple guards until they move in too close. *Finish them with Silenced Pistol. *Stay along fence until you're between the Left building and Middle building. *Snipe security camera #2, you'd be facing it when facing away from the fence. *At any point in time, a Sniper will appear in the far, upper Dam. Snipe him back, and don't get confused if you see bullets. If there's gunfire coming from nowhere, it's him. *Climb stairs on left building. *Enter room below Satellite Dish; Open security door. *Continue across plank. *Drop into room with mines; unlock door. *Explore all the doors in this area; get Body Armor and Sniper Shells. *In one building there are TWO FILE CABINETS.

The security camera won't have time to spot you. If you're on Hard, just shoot it; if you're playing Hard you should know where it is. *Right aftwer camera guards will be on stairs in groups of one. Be careful. *Once you reach the stop, snipe all visible guards through window in door. *Eliminate as many guards as you can from a disance with Sniper Rifle; If you run out or they get too close, use the Silenced Pistol. *Collect spoils, including the Soviet. *On the left side there are three small rooms with valves in them. Turn off the valves. Also, there is Body Armor in the first one and Sniper Rifle Ammo in the last one. *That turned off the steam at the end of the corridor; Go through the door. *Descend stairs keeping an eye out for guards and being sure to collect the Body Armor and Sniper Rifle Ammo. *Outside, there is a Sniper on the far side of the dam, just like the first one. *Eliminate all 3 guards in the area, being wary of the security camera on the back of the building facing away from where you entered the area. *Enter the building; In the first room, there is a guard on your left and a guard hiding behind some racks on the right. *Descend the stairs; Enter the door on your left. *Take note that in these showers you can put yourself out should you catch on fire. *Leave; Go around the corner and stop. *Look for the security camera and snipe it. *Eliminate all guards in this large room. *Go back to the corner after the shower area doors; Look for the entrance to a small service closet. *Inside here, collect the goodies and plant a Timed Mine on the ONE FILE CABINET. *There should be a Fire Extinguisher in this room or the room below depending on difficulty. *Going through the first large room, but before the next stairs, look to your left; There are TWO FILE CABINETS. You know what to do. *OBJECTIVE: DESTROY THE FILE CABINETS should be done. *Head down the stairs to the checkpoint; You should hopefully be at half health and body armor. If not, the rest of this level will be harder. -------- PART TWO -------- *In the next room there are four guards in random locations; Ice em. *Go up stairs to walkway above middle of room; Destroy gun turrets. *Go up stairs to conrol room; Press button to the left of the red display to open door in lower room. *Head to digging site. *Enter the second room on your right; Press both switches here. *Continue through opened doors; Kill Assault Shotgun weilding guard. *As you approach this room, a guard is hiding to the left of the corridor; Another is at the far end of the room. *Collect computer disk from guard at far end of the room. *Destroy Timesplitters that appear, preferably by shooting off their heads with a Silenced Pistol or Soviet. (Shotgun ammo is scarce) *Go back to Control Room and use the disk on the red display. *OBJECTIVE: RESTORE POWER TO THE ELEVATOR should be complete. *Head back down towards the rooms on the right, icing the Timesplitters along your path. *Pillage the first and third rooms on the right for a Flamethrower, Timed Mines, Body Armor, and the TIME CRYSTAL. *OBJECTIVE: COLLECT THE TIME CRYSTAL should be complete. *Head further down to the digging site, eliminating the Timesplitters along the way. Use the flamethrower, and they'll set each other on fire by accident and die. *OBJECTIVE: INVESTIGATE THE DIGGING SITE AT THE BOTTOM OF THE DAM is done for. *See the biological container *NEW OBJECTIVE: DESTROY THE BIOLOGICAL CONTAINER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE DIGGING SITE. *At the bottom is where the path splits. On Easy, jump through the TIME PORTAL to CLEAR THE LEVEL. On Normal and Hard, plant 5 or 6 Timed Mines on the BIOLOGICAL CONTAINER, and watch out for a Timesplitter that mysteriously appears. *OBJECTIVE: DESTROY THE BIOLOICAL CONTAINER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE DIGGING SITE is complete. ----------------------------- PART THREE (NORMAL/HARD ONLY) ----------------------------- *On your way out, there will be many more Timesplitters and Russian Special Forces with Kick-Ass weapond; As long as you're smart about it, no more Silenced Pistol. *NEW OBJECTIVE: DESTROY ALL THE MUTANTS. It's a lie. You only have to kill them all up to the area outside where you are not, in the snow. *Use the Assault Shotgun and Soviet *There'll be a Flaming Zombie once; Either extinguish him or avoid his corpse. *Check all the shelves if you want the hidden minigame. *On the top floor, there is a guard with a Flamethrower; If you're burned, head for the showers that are near the 3rd File Cabinet and near the bottom of the katest stairs you went up. *As you fight your way outside, you'll probably kill enough Timesplitters; On Hard you may have to explore the base a little to find more kills. *Fight your way through a flaming mob of Timesplitters (see above if you're burned) and to the elevator. *Ascend the elevator until the music changes and boss stats appear. *NEW OBJECTIVE: DESTROY THE GUNSHIP. *Okeely dokiy then, there are two chaingun/missile launcher employments. *Fire away! Do a load of damage. *Guards will appear at the sides of the dam. Take em out fast, and keep an eye out for more. If a chaingun runs out of ammo, switch to the other. *If both run out, try the Shotgun or Soviet; However, you are pretty much screwed if this happens. At least take cover in one of the Sniper windows. *Eventually it dies! *OBJECTIVE: DESTROY THE GUNSHIP is complete. *Enter the TIME PORTAL to CLEAR THE LEVEL. ------------------------- PART FOUR (WEAPONS INDEX) ------------------------- Unarmed: Hitting an enemy in the back is a one-hit kill. Temporal Uplink: Useful for revealing enemy locations, use it if you think there may be an enemy around the corner. Its secondary function allows you to play hidden minigames. Silenced Pistol: Obtained at the very beginning of the level. Useful until you get the Soviet KA-57, and even then it's good against TimeSplitters. Sniper Rifle: Obtained at the very beginning of the level. Useful for long range targets. Does good damage, but too awkward to use at close or mid-range effectively. Timed Mines: Obtained inside hut with hole in roof in area you start in. Since you have to save most of them, don't even bother using them. There aren't even that many good places to use them. Soviet S47: Obtained in corridor with steam pipes, from enemies. Fires standard machine gun rounds and also grenades. The grenades take too long to explode, and are therefore only useful when combined with the Scanner Thingy. Machine gun rounds are good for quickly dropping enemies and for shooting TimeSplitters heads off. Fire Extinguisher: Obtained on multiple walls on far side of dam's underground la-bora-tory. Refill ammo by collecting another. Not too great, unless for some reason you wish to put out an enemy. Assault Shotgun: Obtained on your way to the Computer Disk, from a guard. Great close range damage, but that drops dramtaically depending on range. Good for headshots or headblowoffs of the TimeSplitters. Flamethrower: Obtained in one of the rooms with the forcefield. Useful for killing enemies slowly, but they can still fire so it's best when you have to leave an know you'll come back to collect the spoils. Chaingun/Missile Launcher: Stationary weapon on top of Dam. Has machine gun fire and missile fire modes. Used only against the Gunship on Normal and Above skill settings. _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ Chapter Four: Multi-Player _______________________________________________________________________________ ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯ TimeSplitters 2 is primarily a multi-player experience.

Play each game by using the Temporal Uplink's secondary feature. ------------- Anaconda Card ------------- Located: EASY 1990 Siberia (west side of the dam in an area with fruit on the shelves) Where You've Seen It: This is a game known by most cellphone users as Snake. It is the basic game involving a snake that must eat little items. How To Play It: Use the directional pad to move your snake and "open door" button to make your snake move faster. Eat the static reds for normal points, or eat the moving blues for more points. Do this without letting your snake eat itself or the game ends. ---------------- AstroLander Card ---------------- Located: NORMAL 2019 Neo Tokyo (room with the lockers with the machine gun, inside the lockers on the right) Where You've Seen It: You may have played Lunar Lander, an ancient Atari game.
