Nastyclan Unofficial Quake 2 Strategy Guide by Nastyhotshots
Point of Reference:
If you are good at grenade jumping, especially using the rocket launcher and quad damage together, you can do this game real quick by bypassing many areas. Works well in the mines and early stages of the game. My videos do not show this as I always true to my abilities and I have not developed consistency in these skills sufficient enough to do them in a recording. I will point out the quick routes in this guide just in case anyone does has the skills to do these types of jumps and is want to log an official Quake 2 speedrun.
I do the missions faster than normal as I avoid enemy contact whenever possible and always try to keep health high, along with my armor, just in case I rocket jump.
Objective 1: Locate the Installation Elevator.
Objective 2: Gain access to the Base Installation.
Objective 3: Locate the Communication Centre.
Objective 4: Enter the bunker.
Strategy for objective 1 and 2
This is the easiest part of the mission. Keep in mind to avoid contact and shoot only those who get in your way if you want to do the mission faster than normal. Firstly, run along the corridor, bunny hop over the guards that get in your way. Once at the end of the corridor enter the room and head straight for the barrels. If you are good at double jumping you can jump the barrels and jump a second time to reach the ledge where the elevator entrance is. If you are not consistent with this do what I do in the video and jump onto the barrels and shoot them whilst u jump again. The blast will get you to the elevator entrance. Only disadvantage is it takes a big chunk of health. If you are good at bunny hopping and double jumping you can get to the elevator with most of your health in tact. Don't beat yourself up if you cannot do it just do what I do and always seek health packs and armor. Once you have reached the elevator entrance go in and hit the button to go down to the next level.
Strategy for objective 2 and 3
Open the elevator door and head straight for the barrels. This is where a double jump and explode the barrels at the same time will get you onto the platform above and save some time and enemy contact. If u fail on this bit just do what I do and get to the platform lift pronto. Avoid taking the machine gun from behind the bars, you don't need it and it wastes time and exposes you to attack from behind. Head straight around to the platform lift. Once up head out and turn right and right again heading for the sewer entrance. Once inside the sewers press the button on the wall to open a gate in the floor. Jump down the hole to enter next level.
You now need to head towards the main communication room. Shoot whatever guards get in your way and head through the door and upstairs. Here you will see a dead guard and a machine gun. Pick up the weapon and turn around. Head towards the boxes where there is another quad damage. Once you have the quad damage head through the corridors, turning right. You are now at the communications area. Behind the window you will see a large computer guarded by a gunner. Shoot the window and jump into the area taking out the gunner. Now you will find a large number of enemies. Press the large button on the computer and hide behind the screen. You will notice that a blue key is rising up from an area in front of the computer. You need to take this key to open the door outside the building. From behind the computer here you are relatively safe but the enemy numbers are high so either clear the area with your machine gun or try to run past them back onto the ledge and out of the area. Once outside head straight over to the door, which will now open. Once inside proceed as fast as you can to the platform lift which takes you to the exit.
Once you exit the area you will now need to enter the bunker area. Head out through the doors and take the ammo and health lying around and hit the large level in front of you. Head straight out of the area and turn right. Jump across the gap and through the door. Once through the door head down the corridor and turn left. You will find a gunner here but just run around him and press the button near the lift. Don't enter just yet, turn right and you will see boxes, on top of the boxes is a quad damage go and get it and then exit through the lift.
