daz0rz 11-07-2007 03:46 AM

Even though I have the achievement thats great work.

ChumbaWumba91 11-07-2007 05:16 PM

I didn't type it all out lol, i bumped into it and i asked the creator if i could post it on the forums to help everyone out. It seems to be doing the trick :)

Tom19 11-07-2007 07:17 PM

mattakasnipes 11-09-2007 06:41 PM

Hey guys,

Well I wrote that massive guide up there and I do my best to offer help and support so here i am. If you got questions post them and I will do my best to help you.

The Brian Man 11-09-2007 09:57 PM

Dude someone seriously should make a video of this and then YouTube it. Much thanks though.

highpass 11-12-2007 07:22 PM

Mattaka,

I followed this guide to the letter and found something odd happening around this area:-

276-284 Follow the cave along you cant miss them you walk right over them fall down and kill the rest.
...288


No matter how many times i reverted to a previous save where i was definite about keeping up with the guide, i kept finding myself with two less around this point, but it evens itself out come the end somehow. Thought I'd better note that in case anyone else gets confused.

Ta for the guide though; life saver.

Jack Bauer Jnr 11-14-2007 12:00 PM

Great guide - sadly using this guide I end up being one short.

This is where I get to when it goes wrong:

Quote:

276-284 Follow the cave along you cant miss them you walk right over them fall down and kill the rest.
286-288: On exiting the cave there are 2 to the right kill them
289-292: On the other little yellow cave off to the right all in plain sight kill them.
293-295: Follow the cave along when you exit there are two on the left side.
I have 284 after I fall down on some of the grub which is correct, however, upon leaving I kill 2 more grub and get 286. However the guide is saying I should somehow have 288, when infact it should be 286. So I get to the end and I am missing just one, lucky I saved when I got to 284, as from then on it goes pear shaped.

Does anyone know anywhere along this line where I may have missed one.

* I took a break reloaded my checkpoint where I had 284 and somehow or another I have the correct number. Very Wierd. *

swirlymanx 11-14-2007 04:50 PM

Nice guide helps a lot

Hell-Fighter 11-16-2007 01:36 PM

Nice done!

Hope Ill get those little freaks now. ;)

Yep - all sorted the other day, as you said it somehow magically irons itself out - odd that ;)

ZoSomma 11-20-2007 12:56 PM

Great guide. Many thanks. Could not have done it without this.

Bomber v4 11-21-2007 05:30 PM

Thank you so much. Ive been looking all over for a guide for these stupid grubs. Should come in handy

PureFLCL 11-23-2007 06:04 AM

Thanks for all the work putting this together, it was really a big help. That last one was a mystery for me until I heard it's little squawk noise they make and then it had a bullet for Thanksgiving.

bcombs 11-24-2007 06:35 AM

Am I the only one that this guide doesn't work for?
The locations were only in sync up to the 11th grub. After that none of the described locations make any sense. I had well over 50 grubs by the time I got to number 27 on this guide.
Can anyone tell me what's going on?

highpass 11-24-2007 06:37 AM

I'm afraid not, that makes no sense to me. I've not heard of anyone having problems until reaching at least the 286 mark... Have you started from scratch again yet still have the same problem?

bcombs 11-24-2007 06:43 AM

Yeah, I started a new game from chapter two. After grub 11, there's a large cave with them everywhere. I end up with over 50, but I can't find the locations for anything past 11. And then for some reason I end up in the elevator room where the 150s are in the guide. Yet i only have about 70 by this time.

highpass 11-24-2007 06:47 AM

Ah, therein lies your problem. There are 93 in Chapter 1, 240 in Chapter 2.

Unless you meant to say Episode 2, in which case i'm stumped.

bcombs 11-24-2007 06:53 AM

Ahh. I thought that may have been the problem. I had just assumed that Chapter two started me at the beginning of the underground portion of the game.
Thanks a lot!

highpass 11-24-2007 06:54 AM

No worries... :).

As highpass and a few others mentioned, around grub number 276 this guide is a bit off. It's all fixed by number 297, though. This is how the guide should read:

...
276-283 Follow the cave along you cant miss them you walk right over them fall down and kill the rest.
284-285: On exiting the cave there are 2 to the right kill them
286-288: On the other little yellow cave off to the right all in plain sight kill them.
289-293: Follow the cave along you can't miss them.
294-295: When you exit there are two on the left side.
SAVE GAME!
296-297: Run down the tunnel the big bad bug came from and into the yellow hole you will kill the on the entrance just from going in.
...

Vergs 11-27-2007 05:27 AM

The Guide is not off. I had previously made the run and got 331/333 without the guide. I missed 113-114 (Good job, btw, Mattakasnipes, on pointing out how tough those are to see). Of course, I had to go all the way back through and check after every 2-3 to make sure I was on track.

Where I think the guide could be a tad more clear and where I think people are "mysteriously missing two (2)" is after this sequence:

1. Move large cement mixer out of the way;
2. Drop down hole into out of control mine cart which crashes into a shaft with some water;
3. Kill all the grubs on your way up the shaft and head up the tunnel and make sure you get the ones you missed on the way down, including the ones on the ceiling.
4. At this point, head back down the tunnel, towards the mine shaft you came up earlier, and veer to the right back into the caverns.

In this area, when you drop down, the guide reads:

207-209: Once you fall into the non man made cave (reads: veer to the right and drop down into the cavern). What isn't clear here is the fact that there are some on the wall there AND some on the ceiling just above you.

Otherwise, GREAT GUIDE. I paused it at 332/333 (waiting on Alyx to raise), just to come thank you all for hit!

Bomber v4 12-01-2007 04:34 PM

Finally I found all the stupid grubs today. I thought I missed one but luckly I didnt

Raider 12-01-2007 11:12 PM

Thanks to this guide I got them all. 98/99 one more achievement left.
