Oh no, the Stay Puft marshmallow man is running amok and you're going to have to stop him…eventually. For now, escort the Ecto-1 through Times Square, up to the barricade. Stay back, as some mini-marshmallow enemies are about to come your way, though a few quick zaps should take care of them. Hold your position, as ghosts will be coming your way as soon as the taxi ahead explodes, clearing the path.
Now the Ecto-1 is outfitted with something called a "Super Slammer" on its roof, which is essentially a really large version of your normal Ghost Trap--except its far more effective as ghosts cannot escape its grasp. As such, we suggest following behind the Ecto-1 at all times, allowing you to easily grab the ghosts and slam them into the trap, resulting in an instant capture. This position also allows you to easily revive any fallen teammates, as well as allowing them to do the same for you. Just make sure to watch out for a few more mini-marshmallow enemies who'll sometimes appear.
Just as the Ecto-1 begins to turn into an ally, several gargoyles will swoop in from a nearby building. Luckily, these guys are pieces of cake--just grab them with your capture beam (by pressing L2 or Left-Bumper while blasting them), then slam them into the ground to break 'em into pieces. After destroying the first few, more will swoop in, and they'll be joined by several construction-worker ghosts. We found a good place to tackle them from was the alley the Ecto-1 is trying to turn into--this provides a good vantage point, while shielding you from most attacks. Focus on the gargoyles first, then target the ghosts and throw them into the slammer.
With the Ecto-1's path blocked, follow Winston through the adjacent laundromat. The ghosts will rearrange the machines, eventually revealing a path between them, leading to the other side of the blockage. There, you'll spot a leaking fuel truck--fire some Boson Darts at it with L1/Left-Bumper to blow it up, clearing a path for the Ghostbusters mobile. Follow the car up the street, and be sure to collect the 3-Toed Jenkin's bottle artifact on the right side, when the car comes to a stop. Now approach the fence to trigger its destruction, allowing you to push forward to the theater.
The theater is home to numerous ghosts who'll put up quite the fight. In addition, they're able to teleport around with ease via the red portals in the walls. It's generally best to stick close to one of your teammates so he can revive you if you go down--which you probably will several times. But make sure to repay the favor and revive them too, as they won't be able to help you if they're incapacitated. A short ways into the battle, some more gargoyles will attack--focus on taking them down before returning your attention to the ghosts.
