    Quantum of Solace

    As with the exterior of the Science Center, stealth is an important factor in this mission. Begin by heading down the hallway, descend the stairs and quietly eliminate the guard up ahead. Patch into the camera towards the right and then exit to go downstairs. Take cover immediately as soon as you see two guards in conversation up ahead on the catwalk. Taking notice of the camera, take out the guards as quickly as possible (but do note that the battle will almost assuredly bring further enemies into the room for you to deal with). Once they are all taken care of, head to the door on the left and unlock it via the keypad.

    Head inside and immediately take cover as this room with several catwalks is the sight of an ambush. There are guards on all of the catwalks ahead, so take out all of them before moving up to each next point of cover. When you’re certain that all the enemies are taken care of, head to the last catwalk until you see a line of pipes for you to move across. Proceed through the balancing section to move across and then ascend the ladder on the left in the next room to enter the ventilation duct. Once in, slide down the rope ahead to lower yourself to the basement level (B1).

    Unlock the door ahead and move around the corner, taking notice of a patrolling guard up ahead. You can quickly take him out just as he turns into the room up ahead. Be especially careful to not be spotted by the security camera in the corner of the next corridor. Wait until it is facing the other direction before disabling it via the box across from you. Take out another patrolling guard up ahead by the vending machine and then move through the room you can see via the windows to enter the security center from the rear. This allows you to take out any remaining enemies by surprise and prevents the chance that you’ll alert any additional guards to your whereabouts.

    In the security center, access the elevator via the computer with the flashing light and then begin your ascent in the elevator when it arrives to your right. Unfortunately, the ride is not a smooth one as the enemies are prepared and they lock it down. At this point, the elevator doors will open for a brief period–but don’t rush out as there are several guards just waiting to fire at you. Remain inside and eliminate any guards that you can. After a few moments, the elevator will begin to fall. In the ceiling above you, an escape hatch will eventually open, so move through it as soon as it does. Immediately move to the ladder and climb up and out as fast as possible in order to escape from the rising explosion resulting from the crashing elevator.

    Take cover as soon as you emerge from the elevator shaft. Two enemies are waiting for you, but luckily they soon get taken out by the elevator explosion. Move to the corner towards the right and take cover as you eliminate the next pair of enemies ahead. Keep proceeding forward in the hallways, taking cover as necessary to deal with the approaching enemies. There is a TLD-22 submachine gun nearby in a crate if you need it. Head back to the leftside hallway (from the elevator standpoint) and then head down the stairs.

    Watch out for oncoming fire as soon as you move down the stairs. Take cover to the right of the staircase and return the fire. There are numerous guards stationed on both sides of this area, so methodically work your way up one side, eliminating everyone you come into contact with. Pay special attention to the guards firing at you from the upper level from both sides. Since you need to eliminate all the guards in this area, patience is required. Don’t head into the middle as you’ll be surrounded by men both on your level and above you. Simply work your way up one side to the opposite end of the room and do the same on the other side.

    Once all of the guards are finally taken care of, the door will unlock to the nearby room where one last guard stands in your way. Quickly take him out to complete the level. Mission Complete.
