Ah! I see, like a catapult rather than getting the car I'm driving in up to the root?

Well man I am stuck here, I make the jump, the car gets there, but then I have no way to blow up the tank. The red spot just doesn't stick to it si I waste my bullets. I have tried every position,, from the ramp, on the left side on the "balcony", and I even crossed on foot on the right side where it is white on the ground. Never got the car to explode. Where did you put yourself ???

EDIT : NVM, you just have to do it again until the car is well positioned. Sometimes it lands on a position where you just can't shoot it. So kill yourself and repeat.

this still doesn't explain how to do it

I'm still stuck at that single the "behind the fence" root of evil its my last one
and yet the bottle always explodes BEFORE it gets behind the fence
because the passage is too SMALL, the only thing that goes past it is a burning glass molotof trowed against the gasbottle ... stopped it near the Root and nothing Happens

anyway i'm waiting for a youtube vid for this one

EDIT: i almost had it the molotof needs to be placed on the lowest part of the metal

I missed two roots in Chapter 3, can I go back via chapter select or can I get back there in a later chapter?

You don't need to do any roots till the start of chapter 7 and 8. Then you get sections that basically just is burning roots to get your vision powers high enough. Roots just stay in the game from the first time you encounter them till the end of the game (more and more will however popup, at chapter 8's start all will be visible). So no need to go back, do them in chapter 7 and 8.

After Chapter 8.1 it's all liniar again with no real return to the free-roaming of before that. So Finnish it up in 8.1 if you want the achievements. Mind you, I think even after you can still do them by selecting chapter 8.1. I just did so after finishing the game to get some last achievements (the combination of materials) and all the roots where gone (I burned them all in 8.1).

The first root in Central Park (bottom left of map, in a wet cellar of a big stately home.

I went down there, killed the bug nest thing and burned the root but that part of the radar never cleared. I went back there after doing the car jump bit to double check and the root's gone and I did pick up 2 spectral vision points but the GPS is still jammed.

did I miss one?

I noticed earlier people talking about the root on 8.1 in the NW corner (the one w/ Vampirz). I never could find a ledge to hop on and reach it, but I WAS able to park my car under it and jump on top. Even though the Vampirz attacked me, I was able to barely reach it with a bottle of alcohol and I shot it. Hope this helps anyone with a problem.

You missed two actually. It's quite hard to see, but where you got the first one on the wall there is an electircal box. Connect the wire's to make a lift appear, take the lift and upstairs are two more roots (watch out for the fisure that will come at you).

i'm on chapter 6 at the moment and i'm doing the root thats right next to the big lake [go inside teh building, down to ladders into the black stuff on the floor] its protected by the metal fencing and everytime i throw a bottle it sticks to the fence. tried all sorts of combinations of throwing techniques different lengths/heights etc and having no luck. any ideas?
any tips on getting out of said room as well? i tried throwing glowsticks into spots where i would need them [ie. the corner and right in front of the ladder] but the one i throw towards the ladder keeps moving with the black liquid :|
sorry >.<

I'm currently in the museum. Does anyone know if it's possible to get that root I missed? Do you end up going back outside? Or can I use the scene select thing to get it (without messing up my achievements)?

See previous answers as this one has been asked before and been answered before in this topic.

Basically: Sticky to a bottle, throw on it on one of the metal things that can move, use the machine to make it move to the root, stop it again. shoot it... BOOM

You can do all roots at late as episode 8.1 (when you also will finally get them all). But not after anymore, al through I think you can just do them skipping back to 8.1 and just continuing then after having finished the game. Dunno, I cleared them all out in 8.1. You can't "miss" one before that.

One question, guys. Which is the episode/part to start looking for roots? Since I haven't finished the game yet and I'm not sure if certain areas of Central Park are locked until later in the game. Thanks.

I have the Prima guide and it shows where all the roots are but don't know if it's ok to show them here though.

Scout it out again, only 3 (or 4?) rooms basically. The central one where you came in and a root on the left in one of the rooms there (a bit where the fisure comes from that attacks you) and one in the right room (where you can also climb down out of the window).

Jump out of the car so you stay behind while the car flies over the ramp...

I can't get the fuse box to work, gone through all the combination (started on left set cycle through right, switch wire on left, cycle through right again) and none of them worked (blue+blue electrocuted me)

Think this might be a bug, anyone else had this problem ?

Dont hold the wires so close if you have a ark you have the right ones, just keep one hand back and bring the other one in slowly. Also if you are where I think you are You need to watch the lights in the fusebox. Only connect the wires, when itīs green...I think it does a little beep as well.
