half life 2 tips

Post by thefreeman on Tue Jul 15, 2008 5:22 pm

ok like the portal one i am going to put some helpfull tips about half life 2. but i have two sections weopons and gameplay.

Weapons:
1.
the first weapon you get is the crowbar. now right after you get it you
have to kill two guards with it. once you kill them you get a pistol.
after geting the pistol, NEVER USE THE CROWBAR AGAIN UNLESS FOR PUZZLES
OR AS A LAST RESORT!!! it sucks it just sucks..... well at least on
guards.on the zombie level conserve ammo by using it on them wile they
are on the ground if you dont have anything to pick up with the gravity
gun.
2. the second weapon the pistol is pretty good. when you get
later weapons it starts to loose its touch, but in the begining or if
you want to conserve Ammo then its a good all round weapon. dont hold
down the trigger button if you want rapid fire. press it repeatedly and
you'll get very quick fire.
3. the third weapon is the SMG. now the
SMG is actually two weapons in one. The first is a rocket launcher. You
rarely ever use the rocket launcher component because there are'nt a
lot of its ammo but it works the same as the grenades but on impact.
The second part is the actual SMG. this one has only a little ammo in
the begining, but later in the game it will become its primary
weapon...... but save it for guards. try not to use it on zombies or
jummpers.
4. Frag grenades. Basicly normal grenades. good for groups
of guards, but i found somthing else. if you throw it into a grippers
tounge, then it will try to eat it and it will explode in its face.
5.
The Magnum Pistol is the fifth weapon that you get. of all the guns it
packs the most punch in one hit. i can get one hit kills by shooting
guards in the foot! the downside to it is that it has very little ammo
and has a slow reload time.the max amo it can hold is 18 bullets
including ones that are already in the gun.
6. the gravity gun is a
sort of gun that helps you pick up certain objects/enemys and allows
you to shoot them at other things. shoot bandsaws to slice enemies
inhalf.
7. the shotgun is a gun that you get from father gregory
in the zombie level. it does a good amount of damage and has good
range..... but dont waste it on normal enemies. save it for long leged
gripper zombies, or fast zombies that take multiple hits. the max
amount to hold is 36 shells.
8.the pulse rifle is basically a suped
up version of the SMG. it has more firepower, but less ammo. instead of
launching a grenade as its secondary attack, it fires a large ball of
energy that works as the grenade but larger blast radius, and fewer of
them to be found.
9.the rocket launcher is a very powerfull, and
amusing weapon. it only can hold 3 rockets at a time but they can be
found aplenty in some parts. once you fire the rocket it follows
werever you aim due to a laser pointer. this can be good or bad. it
allows you to hit flying moving objects such as the gunnships or it can
be bad if you end up going crazy with it and point it directly in front
of you.
10.the crossbow is a great weapon that packs a punch. you
can find almost no ammo whatsoever for it but its a great gun when you
get it. its secondary attack is to use the scope and then fire zoomed
in. bassicly what you fire are white hot metal rods at the enemy.
11.the bug bait.
this
is my personally faverite weapon of all. it looks like a spiky ball
with lights on it. it allows you to control antlions. if you want them
to follow you, use the secondary attack button and gordon will squeeze
the bug bait and they will responde by screeching. if you want them to
go to a certain area, use the first attack button gordon will throw the
bug bait and they will chase it. if you want them to go after a certain
enemy, throw it at the enemy and they will attack it. if any of them
die, just stand on some sand and some more will apear. i've only been
able to get 4 at once so i dont know if you can get any more.
Game play
1. best way to beat guards.
Guards
are the most common enemy in the game. they are also one of the
easiest. the problom is they shoot back at you. when fighting guards
first try and find cover. after that take pot shots at them with a gun
of your choice. If you can try and get them to cluster together and
throw a grenade at them. In the begining of the game you have to run
from the guards. luckly fo you they are pretty stupid.
2. Hoppers
hoppers are little ailiens that hop around and try to grab your head
and latch on like a parasite. they look like headless chickens and are
pretty easy to kill on there own. the best way to do it is to just run
around and shoot them with your pistol to conserve ammo. if you just
want to get through it then you can just use a grenade or an SMG.
3.
long legged hoppers are a pain in the but. they hit you and inject a
nurotoxin that brings your health down to one. when it does this your
suit injects a antidote into your system that brings your health back
to its original. while it does this you are very vounerable. the best
way to kill them is to use your crowbar to save ammo which takes one
hit or if you have to use your smg.
4. Zombies
Zombies are what
happens when a hopper gets a hold of a human. it latches onto the
humans head, suffacates it, and then controls the body by sending
impulse to the brain. so basicly they are Zombies. The Zombies usually
show up in the radioactive waste dumps. they pop up out of the muck and
charge at you. If any objects get into its way, it wacks it towards
you. if the object hits you it take a chunk of health.if it gets to
close it hits you over the head and takes out a chunk of health. The
best way to kill it is to aim for the hopper on its head and shoot it a
few times with the SMG.but in the level completely filled with zombies
use your crowbar or better use the gravity gun to pick up buzzsaws and
shoot them at the zombies middle to sever them inhalf.
5. flinger
zombies have a few long legged hoppers on their person. if you are'nt
close enough then they throw one of their hoppers at you. to beat them
dodge the hopper and shoot them with your gun of choosing, or use the
gravity gun and sever them inhalf with a buzzsaw.
6.fast zombies are
realy scary. they are extremely fast (duh), they charge at you, back
you in a corner and try to eat your face...... they cant climb ladders
but they can climb water poles. they cant open doors but they can jump
through windows or break through skylights. lucky for you, father
gregory gives you a shotgun before they show up. shoot them with it or
the SMG. absolutely do not let them push you off the roof.
PS all zombies cannot climb, other than the fast zombies.
7. Buzzsaw robots.
Buzzsaw
robots are little flying robots that charge at you at have band saws
that go around them. think of them like flies. and like flies they are
pretty easy to kill, just hit them with the crowbar a few times or
shoot them with the pistol.
8. Grippers.
Grippers are stationary
aliens that let their tounges hang to the floor. if you run into the
tounge it starts to pull you up and starts to eat you.
if that
happens take your pistol/magnum, aim up, and repeatedly fire into its
mouth. the best way to kill them is to take a flammable barrel and roll
it into their tounge. after they grab it shoot it a few times, and it
will explode in its mouth.
9. Helecopters.
the helecopters are
only in one part of the game. the dam. when you go against it you are
using the airboat. you have to shoot it down with your turret gun.it
shoots at you with its turret and drops mines on you. after you get its
health down a bit, it drops a dead pilots out of the helicopter.
10. gunships.
gunships
are basicly their name. they are big,fast, and very stupid. they have
pretty bad aim. what you want to do is aim the rocket launcher at them,
track them with the aim, and just kill them like that. easy.
11.antlions.
ant
lions are very tough and very anoying. think of them as a mix between
tremors, and praying mantises.Like the guards use your gun of chooing
to kill them but i recomend the shotgun, the magnum, or the pulse
rifle. they are pretty stupid, and easy to kill.

(i will write more tips as i 1 get farher into the game and 2 find out what else the enemies can do.) study
