On the opposite side of the room you can find a Dollar Bill and a Veni! Vidi! Vigor! vending machine with some new upgrades available to purchase.

Veni! Vidi! Vigor! Machine

**Vigor(s)** **Upgrade(s)** **Cost**

As soon as the level starts grab the Kinetoscope (left) before fighting your way through the gondola station.

When ready, enter either one of the doors leading to the main room.

The main room is has a number of pillars and an auto-turret at the far end ready to shoot you if you come into its line of sight. There is also a bunch of Founder soldiers with 2-3 located on the near side of the room and 8-10 on the far side of the area near the auto-turret. There is a mix of melee and gun equipped soldiers, so it’s best to either possess or destroy the turret as quickly as possible to give you some freedom of movement.

Once everything is dead, climb the stairs at the back of the room and check out the rooms to the left and right for some loot if you are interested (there is a fair bit of money lying around in here) before proceeding out the far door to enter a hallway with a red carpet.

Turn right as you exit to find another set of Dollar Bill and a Veni! Vidi! Vigor! vending machines for you here if you wish to use them. To the right of the machines is a door leading to another room with a bit of loot. Exit to the hallway and follow it until you are back outside.

Now that we are outside and the gondola isn’t going anywhere, we finally get to use those sky-lines! Target the sky-line to the left with your reticule you’ll see that each sky-line consists of two rails which will each take you in a different direction. Target the one going away from the platform you are on and ride it down and up until it goes through an archway.

At this point, you will see a blue platform to the left of the sky-line with a Founder soldier. Jump down and kill the soldier and his friend inside. Check out the doorway to the right inside the maintenance area here and you will find an Infusion Upgrade [1/1] on a desk. Loot the rest of the area and return to the balcony. Head over and use the Telescope [1/1] on the right hand side.

Grab the Infusion Upgrade (left) and Telescope (right) from the first room accessible from the skyline.

After the telescope, Hop back up to the sky-line. and ride it along until you come to a stop inside a building. Hop down and kill the Founder soldier here. Proceed into the room to the right. Grab the Voxophone [1/1] from the desk in here.

When you reach the blockage on the skyline, check the room to the right for a Voxophone (right).

Exit the room and look to the left of the machinery in front to find a lever. Pull that to clear the sky-line.

Get back up onto the sky-line and ride it until you can go no further once again. Jump down (or sky-line strike the enemy) to land on the barge on the right. Jump over to the hook opposite and drop down to the raised platform. From here kill the three enemies below. Leap up to one of the hooks attached to the main building and then get down to the balcony below. Enter the open door here.

There are three soldiers in here, so kill them as you progress through. When they are all dead, return to the bedroom and look behind the bedside table on the right of the bed to find a gift containing a new piece of Equippable Gear [1/1] . Once you exit the far end of the building, get back onto that pesky sky-line again. Once more, ride it until it ends and hop off.

Clear the area (left). Then use the hook (right) to reach a balcony. Enter the door to find a piece of Gear inside.

The Tolling

Once you are on the platform, the Founder soldiers here will immediately stop attacking you. Feel free to kill them if you like for some machine gun ammo as they won’t fight back. Head over to the door they are facing and enter it.

Inside, you will see more of the same with non-hostile soldiers kneeling before a giant screen. Run to the back of the room and throw the lever here to activate an elevator.

Once it reaches the top, climb off the lift and follow the platform around to the left and into the hallway until an explosion takes out part of the wall. At this point, run to the new opening and you will see a zeppelin. Target the hook on its side opposite the hole in the wall and then jump down to the platform below.

Take the lift to the top of the tower (left) and then jump over to the zeppelin (right).

There are four Founder soldiers inside the zeppelin and three will emerge from within to attack you as you land. Clear them out and then enter the main deck via the open door, kill the remaining soldier before entering the door to the left. Interact with the control panel at the front of the ship for a scene.

Once you regain control, turn around and you will see the interior of the zeppelin is now on fire. Sprint back into the main room and you will see a door in the floor opening up. When you are able jump out of the zeppelin via this exit and hit the jump button to grab the sky-line below. Ride it until you can go no further.

Drop down to the platform below and use the Dollar Bill and a Veni! Vidi! Vigor! vending machines if you have need of them.

Enter the door at the top of the stairs between the vending machines to complete the chapter.
