    Quantum of Solace: The Game

    Mission 14: Venice

    As a general note, be sure to follow Vesper Lynd along this mission and not let her get too far away. Begin things off by crossing over the bridge and making your way through the archway that leads into a building with an ascending staircase. You’ll pass by a bench to your left before you enter–here lies one of the cell phones of this mission which includes map.

    After you climb the stairs, you’ll eventually emerge on a balcony overlooking a coutyard. A massive fight with the enemies positioned along here breaks out, no matter how stealthily you approach it. It’s best to deal with all the guards positioned on your level first. Use the various corners around you as hideout positions so that you have the upper hand when several of the enemies advance your position. When you’ve done all you can up top, proceed down the stairs to deal with the remaining enemies on the lower level. Use the walls by the stairs as a cover point before rushing out into the ambush. You’ll eventually make your way to last standing enemy, a guard positioned by the far gate. Eliminate him to proceed through.

    Keep tracking Vesper towards her meeting. You can mostly stay up with her, except for the dead end at a gate up ahead near the ascending staircase. To proceed, either make a leap onto the suspended wooden walkway past the orange warning cones or drop down to the floor below and shimmy your way around the building via the small pathway leading up to it (right by the yellow pointed arrow). Once you reach the otherside, ascend the ladder.

    Exit the apartment that you end up in via the left and you’ll soon make your way to a brick wall overlooking several enemies positioned throughout this gondola workshop. This time, you begin the battle, so get into a good position and then fire at side of the gondola to bring it down and then start firing on any and all enemies in position (be wary of the one guard on the same level as you towards your right and note that grenades can be particularly useful for you here). Proceed down via the staircase you’ll eventually reach and then take cover by the nearby crates as you deal with the remaining enemies–don’t rush forward too quickly otherwise you risk being flanked by approaching guards.

    After all the enemies here are out of the way, proceed through the gate where the last wave of them entered through and move across the small bridge by the water, using the red motorboat as a continuation of that walkway in order to reach the wall on the otherside. Shimmy along this so that you can listen in on the meeting between Vesper and Adolph Gettler. Be certain that you are not spotted while doing this (watch out for the guard positioned by the gate).

    Takedown this guard when he finally turns away and then make your way into the house. From this point on, you need to move quick as the house is flooding. Turn left upon entering and kill the first guard you come across. Take out the additional two guards that descend the stairs and then make your way up, taking out the remaining guards you come across as you proceed. You’ll soon come across a large, yellow floataton device doubling as a walkway. Move across this to proceed to the next area, where you’ll need to move across some wooden boards to then reach the next area. Ascend the stairs and then activate the nearby switch to lower more wooden boards that allow you to proceed across the gap and reach the top floor. Watch out for the the group of enemies that attack you here.

    Head to the far corner and then turn left to take out the last guard in the room with the elevator. A cut-scene takes place. When the game resumes, grab the nail-gun and fire it at Gettler to take him out and end the level. 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.
