The Factory Courtyard

You will find yourself on a long bridge-type platform with the factory of interest in the distance. Our goal is to make it across to the other side. It’s not as easy as it sounds though as there are numerous enemies guarding the way. As you enter the area, there are a set of three auto-turrets just ahead that you will need to attend to before proceeding. Up the stairs behind these are another 4-5 Founder soldiers.

Once they are dead, climb the stairs behind the destroyed turrets. At the top you will see that further in the distance is a motorized patriot, a couple of additional soldiers and another pair of turrets. Behind them is the gate we want to get to. You can’t see it from here but at the base of the right hand side of the gate is an oil slick we can use Devil’s Kiss on to help with the standard soldier types if they get too close to it. Additionally, at this point there are three tears we can get Elizabeth to manipulate for us.

**Tears in this Location**
A crate of medical kits on the left side of the bridge. A friendly rocket auto-turret in the centre of the bridge. A piece of cover in the centre of the bridge below the friendly auto-turret.

Use the tears as you see fit, although I’d use the rocket turret personally to assist in drawing fire and then the piece of cover below when the turret is destroyed. Take out the turrets and the patriot and work your way over to the locked gate they were guarding. Finish off any remaining Founder soldiers on the platform here. As your buddies work to open the gate, a new challenger appears! You are now going to have to take out that security zeppelin to continue.

Fight your way across the platform (left). Then use the skylines to reach the zeppelin when it arrives (right).

Run over and jump on the sky-line beneath it and ride it all the way around until you are able to land on a section of the zeppelin itself. Drop down and kill the soldier here. Use the nearby short section of wall to take out the auto-turret and the enemy soldiers below before dropping down to the main platform. Follow the wooden platform to the end and enter the main cabin.

There is a motorized patriot and four soldiers in here to deal with. Three soldiers and the patriot stay at ground level, whilst a fourth soldier will hang out on a raised platform at the back and shoot at you from here. There is an RPG propped up against the control panels at the front of the ship if you want to use that. Try to eliminate the soldiers first before dealing with the patriot as you deem appropriate.

When the room is clear, approach the circular chamber at the back of the room and interact with it to destroy the engine. Now run back outside and hop onto a sky-line, be sure to watch the fireworks as you zoom away!

When you are ready, hop down to the bridge and go through the now opened gate. Climb the stairs to the top. Just at the top of the stairs, be sure to use the Telescope [1/1] in order to add it to your collectible count and then enter the nearby door.

Before entering the factory, look in the centre of the stairs for a Telescope (right).
