View Full Version : help with Hard Boiled

this is starting to piss m,e off and I hope someone still visits this forum so they can help :/

i'm switching back and forth between Mega Restaraunt and Wong's chapter.
In mega restaraunt my problem lies in 2 places: the casino area (with the guitar cases) and where you have to protect the band.

the casino area is a total bitch, i'm not gonna lie. there isn't enough cover for any real progress to be made!
I manage to get to the part where more black suits rush out and they blitz me. I've lasted just over a minute against them. Unfortunately there aren't any health paks and i don't have time (or the health) to grab the cranes. My original plan was to use the spin attack and pwn them all simulataneously but i can't friggin do it. Ideas?

and as for protecting the band, well that's self explanitory. not enough health packs, not enough cranes, not enough cover. it's even worse since the brown suits aren't affected by Tequila Time so slowing down time is just a stepping stone for the black suits. again, i need ideas.

as for Wong's chapter, i'm stuck on the first section and wong himself.
I can't survive long enough in part 1 to make it to the copter. They demolish the houses i'm hiding in and my cranes are gone before i even really need them.

as for wong, i followed the guide and somehow got pwnd. Blitzing didn't work and neither did camping by the stairs and picking them off as they come (somehow the jerks with the kunai/knife things kill me in one shot). i haven't even made it to Dapang and since I'm jumping into the section instead of playing through to it i've got now HMG to kill him anyways!

if anyone has ideas please let me know. thanks :)

For the band area, I had to hide for cover behind the one of the bars in the corner of the room. There are so many waves of enemies, that they'll eventually chip away at your life bar. When you're just about to die, you have to proceed to another corner of the area, nabbing the health packs along the wall as you go. Then repeat as necessary.

If I remember right, for the heli part I just went right next to the entrance to his place and hid behind the giant pillars. I don't think the heli can destroy those pillars. The rocket launcher made quick work of the boss.

For Wong, I don't know what to tell you. I just tried and tried and tried a lot and eventually got it. Hiding by the stairs didn't work for me for that section, either. Just map out where the health packs are in the level and ration them until you absolutely need them.

For the casino, I dropped the guitar cases right outside the elevator doors, one on each side. I just kinda camped out there and picked them off as they walked up and if a bunch of them rushed or someone got too close, I hit Tequila Time.

At the band area, I did the same as Yars, mostly staying in the bar that's to your right when you start the area.

As far as Wong goes, I ran around in circles killing his henchmen and then slowly walked up the stairs to the right of him where I could take shots at him without him shooting me back. When Daipan came out, I believe I used the heavy machine gun with Barrage.

ok well I'm at Wong now and decided not to play anything else until i beat him. I don't have the HMG so I substituted the Golden Pistols (when used with Barrage the kill Dapang really quickly and usually with one Barrage).
THen once Dapang kicks it I run around the bottom as necessary, kill the goons and when I get either Barrage or Percision I hit Wong with all I've got. Iunno what I'm doing wrong but I keep dying, even at full health. And sometimes i run out of G Pistol ammo so I get cornered until it respawns.

For me, killing Dapang was the hardest part. After that, I ran in loops around the upper level. Once you've killed Dapang, the health packs quickly respawn shortly after you nab them. I just kept on getting the same heath pack on the bridge in the upper portion of the level while I chipped away at Wong's health. If I remember right, I never went downstairs again after it was down to just Wong.

well first off thank you to everyone for help on the Casino. I followed your method on hiding behind the bar and putting a case on eithe rsid eof it. First try got it done :D

then I finally beat Wong, again thanks for your help but i found another method. This works great if you don't have the HMG but it's somewhat more time consuming.

When Dapang jumps down, shoot the dragon statue and it should fall on him. sometimes it kills him, sometimes it does 1/4-3/4 and other times it does hardly anything. if you arent satisfied with the damage just restart your checkpoint.
Then grab some cranes and barrage him with Golden Pistol bullets until he dies. When he's dead you should have Precision Aim still so run up the stairs closest to Wong *it doesn't matter which end of the map you're on) and hit him with the PA.
Go back down stairs, hide behind the pillars and kill some goons in Tequila Time with a shotgun and/or Golden Bullets until you get PA back. Run back up, shoot Wong, rinse and repeat.
It only took me about 10 minutes or so using this method. You just have to make sure you have a health pack close by incase you need it so you aren't using Tequila Gauge to regain your health.

thank you but now i've hit a new problem.

i skipped the band part for now and wen tot finish Kowloon Slums. I went to Condemned *second last section* and finished it on Hard Boiled and it didn't register. So i did it again. same thing. then i tried a third time and it still didn't register! is there anyway to fix it or is this one of those infernal in-game glitches that you can't get around?
