    Mission 11: Casino Royale

    'Quantum of Solace'

    Quantum of Solace

    Stealth is a key factor in this mission, so keep that in mind as you begin. Take out the first guard when he begins to walk away from your starting point. There are two guards in conversation in the nearby side room. Move in here and take them out (the further guard will likely not notice you enter). Afterwards, head out and take out the guard positioned at the balcony. Climb over the broken section of the balcony ledge and start sliding across to the next one. Take extra care to not be seen by the guards positioned by the windows when you’re moving across–wait for them to move away before proceeding.

    When you reach the next balcony ledge, take out the guard positioned there (this won’t alert the other nearby guard if you wait for him to look away) and then take out that other guard in the bedroom just as he starts to turn away from you. There’s another enemy in one of the side-rooms and one further one in the hotel hallway. After these men are dealt with, push the nearby laundry cart blocking the entrance to a locker room and proceed through.

    Once inside, look above to see a rattling air vent: your way forward. With your silenced weapon, shoot out the vent and then push one of the carts towards the lockers so that you can climb up and make your way into it. Move to the left and proceed forward. You’ll soon be dropped automatically into a spa room where a large fight is already going on. Take cover immediately (thankfully there is some right in front of where you drop in). There are numerous enemies in this room and some you’ll be able to take out immediately from where you are. However, because of the general layout, you’re going to eventually have to move forward to deal with the rest of them. There are side rooms you can rush to if you feel you’re being ambushed by the men, otherwise just keep pressing forward until all the enemies are out of the way.

    Once all of the enemies are taken care of, move to the end of the hallway past the spa with the steam and head through the open door. Eventually make your way down the next hallway and you’ll come across two guards in conversation on a balcony towards the left. Take them both out and then climb over the balcony ledge towards the right to start sliding around to the next balcony.

    Once you reach it, wait until the patrolling guard in the bedroom starts moving away from your position and then quickly take him out. As soon as you head out through the doorway, turn left and you’ll spot another patrolling guard in the hallway: take him out. Head down the hallway until you come across a concierge desk and a blinking red security lock on the wall behind it. Be sure to have cleared out this hallway of all enemies before unlocking the entrance to the ballroom.

    Arm yourself with a strong weapon and then proceed into the ballroom. This section is a massive firefight that requires a lot of moving around. Luckily for you, there are plenty of items, such as those helium tanks located above that you can shoot at to assist you against the numerous guards positioned here. It’s personal preference regarding whether to begin on the ground floor or sprint for the upper level–no matter which you choose, be sure to take out all the enemies on the same floor as yourself before spending too much time on the ones located on the other. However, do note that if you immediately run to the upper floor, you run the risk of having enemies from the lower level follow you, forcing you to deal with even more at the same time.

    There are several pillars you can use as cover while taking out guards on the lower level, but the upper floor is much more difficult due to the fact that enemies can rush at you from seemingly any direction. Once all the guards are finally taken out, the objective will be completed and you’ll be able to proceed to the far hallway. Take out the new set of guards positioned here from a distance if possible. Once they’re out of the way, proceed forward for your final confrontation of the level: the machete-wielding Steven Obanno.

    The fight with Obanno is one of the more difficult sequences in this game. There are more buttons to press in this quick-time battle, so your timing needs to be as close to perfect as possible. Do things correctly long enough and eventually Obanno will be taken out. Mission Complete.

    Quantum of Solace is currently available on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Nintendo Wii, Playstation 2, Nintendo DS and Windows PC platforms in the UK and US. Click here to order.
