Course 3 - Hard-Light Surfaces

Test Chamber 5

Player 1: There's an Arial Faith Plate located on the floor to your right at the start of this test chamber, so place your portal on the ceiling above it and then on either the far left or far right-hand side of the floor opposite (the centre has a permanent light bridge in the way). Jump off the Faith Plate and steer yourself onto the light bridge. Fire a portal into the wall by the light bridge and remember what colour portal you used!

Player 2 : Once player 1 has reached the light bridge, set your portal on the elevated square panel in the upper left-hand corner of the floor and your next portal above the Faith Plate.

Player 1: Step onto the Faith Plate and as you ascend/descend, fire off a portal on the vertical wall up in the distance so you create a light bridge directly underneath you. Walk towards the wall and wait for player 2 to show up.

Player 2 : Leave one portal above the Faith Plate, but set a second one either on the left or right-hand side of the floor opposite the Faith Plate. Now hit the plate and you’ll land by the light bridge and in a position to join player 1 through the portal.

Player 1: Ask player 2 to jump off the light bridge and over to the ledge located to your right. Turn right to face the wall and set another portal on the light-coloured wall. Now place your light bridge on the lower part so you fall down on top of it. Get player 2 to follow you to the end where the both of you can jump into the alcove that leads to part 2 of the test chamber.

Part 2

Player 1: Your first portal should instinctively be placed on the wall where the light bridge is stopped, now place another portal on the wall panel down and to the left of here (it'll be much closer to the water).

Player 2: Whilst player 1 is preparing the light bridges for you, you need to set a portal on the angled wall panel to your left and then directly above the Arial Faith Plate. Hit the Faith Plate and you'll land in the square area just above player 1.  Fire a portal at the slanted wall in here and then drop down onto the light bridge platform player 1 created for you earlier. Now set an entrance portal back above the Faith Plate before stepping on it. This'll send you flying across the water towards the upper ledge on the far right of the room. Once you've landed, you need to set a portal on the angled wall panel up here.

Player 1: Look up towards where player 2 now is and located on the right-hand wall (just to the left of the light bridge) there's a shoot-able wall panel. Fire a portal here so your light bridge appears near the upper ledge.

Player 2 : Make your way down the light bridge but stop once you’re on the permanent version. Ask player 1 to set a portal back on the lower wall panel (near the water) and use this to reach the start again. For the final time, place your entrance portal directly above the Arial Faith Plate.

Both Players: Step onto the Faith Plate and you'll find yourselves both hurtling towards the exit and onto the next test chamber!
