Half Life 2 Walkthrough - Sandtraps

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 1. Do your best to drive through the dark to this area, where you'll have zombies to battle. Supplies can be found on the right near the indicated crawlspace. Duck through the crawlspace to another room for yet more supplies.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 2. Use your gravity gun's primary fire to move the abandoned vehicles out of your way then drive through the darkness to the tunnel opening.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 3. Drive for a short while then fight the patrols at this house on the right.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 4. Supplies can be found by the riot truck, by this boat behind the house (upper-right) and by a smaller boat farther down the shoreline (lower-right).

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 5. Enter the house through the back then ready your gravity gun before you reach the third floor. These sticky mines drop from the ceiling as you approach the crossbow and other supplies in the corner. Use your gravity gun's secondary fire to pick up the mines, then shoot them out the window with primary fire.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 6. Hop back on the buggy and drive a short distance to this checkpoint.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 7. Defeat the small number of Overwatch here and use the medical station seen on the right. Drive around the barricades and continue down the road.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 8. Farther down the road you'll encounter an overturned truck by a windmill. Steer your buggy over this small hill to maneuver around the truck.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 9. Clear out the patrols then dismount your ride and enter the red building on the left.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 10. Spot these three sets of lights ahead. Note that the left set is green, and that if you move the car battery to the other sets, they turn green. It looks as if you need two more car batteries. Don't miss the medkit on the left.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 11. And what's this? Alas, a car battery can be found right here. Place it in one of the empty slots ahead. "Someone" writes, "There are hidden supplies on an inner roof over the wall with the blood splatter. Looking up (maybe one needs to back up a bit) will reveal a lambda. The supplies can be pulled down using the gravity gun while standing on something to get a higher position."

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 12. Step outside and find the third battery inside this car. Use your grav gun to pull it out from under the hood and take it inside.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 13. If you're the kind that has to know everything, knock this bathtub away to find a fourth battery underneath. A fifth battery can be found on top of the nearby windmill.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 14. Place a third battery into the remaining slot and you'll hear a whirring noise outside.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 15. Now powered by the batteries, this barricade is opening. Search the area for supplies, then hop back on your buggy and continue into the tunnel ahead to load the next area.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 16. Pull into this garage on the left as instructed by the resistance fighters. This is the last you'll see of your dune buggy.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 17. Splat. A dropship soon appears and unloads a platoon of Overwatch. If you like it up-close stay with your A.I. buddies and fight it out at ground level.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 18. For my money, though, the action is in the lighthouse.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 19. There are plenty of supplies inside, such as these medkits here.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 20. An unending supply of rockets can be had in this trunk on the right, perfect for harassing the 4 dropships and final gunship that will attack.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 21. Rockets also do a great job in keeping the Overwatch from making it up the lighthouse stairs -- no need to aim!

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 22. After you've defeated the troops from the fourth and final dropship, this gunship attacks. Do your best to take cover in between rocket launches. Remember to spiral then paint your red laser on the gunship to home your rockets to their destination. Run back to the supply crate to grab more rockets.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 23. After five or so good hits the gunship breaks apart.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 24. Gather any remaining supplies from the base then follow your comrade to this secret door beneath the lighthouse.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 25. Exit through the secret door and more troops attack. Drop to the path below, bust open the crate for supplies, then hop along the ledge to the indicated tunnel where the next area will load.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 26. Heed the advice you are given and don't step on the sand. Otherwise, antlions spawn from the ground. Hop on the rocks and pallet to avoid the sand as you grab the supplies ahead, then continue into the clearing beyond.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 27. It's a straightforward hop, skip and a jump to this fallen windmill. Pick up the crate at the far end and place it at the near end to tip the seesaw-like ramp. You can then reach the hill on the other side.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 28. Work your way right to a small outbuilding and a dock to find supplies, then backtrack left to this position, where your gravity gun can place this nearby plank to form a makeshift bridge.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 29. Grab the supplies in the building then move the same plank to this position, using it to reach the next building. Grab more supplies then sprint the short distance across the next stretch of sand to reach the generator visible ahead/left. Activate the generator with the red buttons (inset).

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 30. Dash to the thumper and take your crowbar to the nearby supply crates. Don't waste your ammo on the swarming antlions -- they're on infinite respawn.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 31. Time to move fast. Sprint across this area as the antlion bull emerges. Rush to the far-left corner and take shelter.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 32. Hunker down behind these rocks while the antlion bull is brought down by turret fire.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 33. Watch as the Vortigaunt works his magic, then approach the bull's corpse to retrieve your next weapon - the pherapod.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 34. Follow the Vortigaunt, making sure to avail yourself of the many supply crates along the way.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 35. Stay close to the Vortigaunt and he'll instruct you on the use of the bugbait. When the lesson is over, a log gate will rise. Proceed through to load the next area.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 36. Climb the ladder and turn off the thumper so your pets can keep pace. Do this for each of the thumpers you encounter.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 37. Use your bugbait to send your precious' feasting on the patrols, then grab these supplies.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 38. Repeat on this second encampment, then head inside to use the turret against any remaining patrols.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 39. Now for some challenging gameplay. Start by keeping right along the shore line. Toss some bugbait to send your antlions against the patrols on the right, while maintaining cover behind the rocks on the left.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 40. Next, head up the hill to those supply crates, battling the troops alongside your antlions as you continue up and to the left.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 41. You can then attack the entrenched position from the rear.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 42. Continue through here.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 43. Manhacks and lots more troops are inside. Don't be in a rush, though. Hold back and let your antlions and explosive barrels do most of the work.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 44. Don't miss these supply crates before pressing on to the exit.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 45. Once out, you'll come to the rear of this next turret. Stay left and overtake the next turret visible beyond.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 46. Here's the next turret on the left, and a dropship will fly away on the right. Toss several pherapods well in advance of your arrival.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 47. Follow the cliffs on the right, then sprint over this log to jump over the gap below.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 48. Let your antlions take care of the two zombies, then use your crowbar to knock out the wooden supports, creating a makeshift ramp.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 49. Climb the ladder then jump off the catwalk to the crates (inset).

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 50. Jump across another gap in the cliff, then climb the stair-like hillside to this sewer entrance to load the next area (inset). Beware the toxic zombie inside.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 51. Emerge out the tunnel then bust open these supply crates and ready your crossbow before climbing the ladder ahead.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 52. Snipe the snipers on these watch towers with your crossbow.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 53. Don't miss these boxes at the base of the middle tower here.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 54. Send your pets up these stairs to battle the Overwatch troops. One of them fires a flare (very cool) to summon a gunship, then another arrives soon after.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 55. Take out the troops inside this office then use the health and energy stations.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 56. Sprint up the stairs to this crate, providing infinite ammunition for your rocket launcher. Move fast as the you've got Overwatch snipers and two gunships firing at you.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 57. This is crazy hard. Do your best to find a spot to snipe the gunships with your rockets. If you pick this spot here, you can use your rockets to take out the several Overwatch on the catwalk above.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 58. Again, about five or so direct hits will bring down the gunships.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 59. The large fuel tank that was against this wall has exploded, opening a passage for you to proceed. Search the area for any remaining supplies before heading in.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 60. Turn the indicated gas valve to stop the flames, allowing you to proceed.

Half Life 2 Walkthrough Screenshot 61. Ditto with this valve. Continue through a door and approach a second to load the next level.
