Chapter Eight: That Old Familiar Feeling
Walk forward, enable bullet time, and kill the enemy around the corner to the left. Grab his MP5. Walk though the hall and encounter a second enemy entering from a door on the left. Wait until Vlad sets off the charges and run back to the start position where the panic room has fallen through the ceiling. Enter and use the controls to close the door. Pick up the painkillers.
Open the door. Walk out to the left and spot the open area to the right. Shoot the guard below. Drop down. Don't stand around too long; a bomb is being pushed over you. Run into the door on the right. Enable bullet time and annihilate the enemies. Go through the area to the left. Vlad fires at you from the top. Run up the stairs and wait for the debris to collapse the walkway. Leap over and go to the door.
Enable bullet time as you move down this hall; enemies will move around the corner ahead of you. Move toward the staircase. Kill the enemy hiding under the stairs. Open the door at the top, then back off quickly. Grenades were just tossed down. Start up the stairs in bullet time and eliminate the guards. At the top, spot Vlad through the window.
Descend the stairs and wait for enemies to emerge from the top of the stairs. Kill them and return to the window. It's open now. Enter the room and grab the plentiful ammo. Listen to the answering machine. You can also turn on the television and listen to the news. Enter and use the lift.
Kill the guards in Woden's room. Beware of more on the upper catwalk. Grab some painkillers if needed. Enter the next door and back up while the staircase explodes. Vlad stands at the top. You must use the wheelchair lift to get to the top while avoiding Vlad's shots. He'll hit the switch to stop the machine so you must hit your switch twice. Duck for cover against Vlad and utilize your bullet time. You will likely need to use some painkillers to survive. Hit the button on the lift to start going up. Once you reach a certain height, Vlad flees and some of his thugs enter. Kill them and follow.
Here's the final encounter. Vlad is on the top platform. Aim for the orange pins that are holding the platform up. You need to position yourself so your shot will propel the pin out of the mechanism. Meanwhile, keep dodging Vlad's explosives by just moving to the right or left after he tosses one from the platform. Knock out three and Vlad falls to the roof.
Now you must aim for the next set of four orange pins holding the top mechanism up. Hit all four as you did the first batch. Once it falls, the final battle remains. Vlad stands up and tosses cocktails down. Dodge them, enable bullet time, and aim for Vlad's upper body. Shoot him several times with the carbine to finish him off once and for all. You can also just keep dodging and Vlad will likely damage himself with the flaming cocktails. A few shots should finish him off.
