Sorry, but Tape it or Die 2 only appears after the military arrives, and to continue the game beyond this point, you need to have the case files done.

Tape it or Die 2 to appeared during Case 6-2 for me.

 

 

 

EDIT: I edited that you have to kill the 3 poker players at Atlantica Casino, excuse me for not writing that!

FYI - both a Cement Saw and Plates can be found in the Maintenance Tunnels using the Palisades entrance (pretty much right around the corner after you go down the stairs - look for the Maintenance Room). Much closer place to grab them from :p (also less loading screens :D)

^^^Well I would edit your guide so people don't get confused and think they have more time than they really do since you state that it closes at noon on day 4.

 

And you say it closes at midnight, the start of day 4, but looking at the official strategy guide says it closes at noon on the 3rd day, so you only have 6 game hours, or 30 minutes of real time.

 

I don't really care as i've already done everything necessary for all of the achievements attached to this mission, but it might confuse some people and screw them out of their achievements, especially when you state EASY.

I've not reached it yet so I don't know which places are convenient time savers, but if this helps your guide any, there's a Cement Saw directly to the left as you exit the Yucatan into the Silver Strip, it's right next to the maintenance door in front of the gated underground access. Plates are in a sink just a short distance from the door, at the corner bar.

Just so everyone is aware (and I think this is stupid as well), 12 PM is NOT midnight it is noon (so, 12 pm, 1 pm, 2 pm... 11 pm, 12 am, 1am). I know it doesn't make much sense to me either, it just is what it is.

 

So is it noon on day 3 that the door closes for the first part of "Tape it or Die" (TIOD) or is it midnight on day 3 (basically 12 am day 4)?

 

I am not giving any guarantees here, but my experience was that I was able to get the door to open between 6 am and 12 pm (or noon) on day 3, but I didn't have the Cement Saw and the Plates and had to go out to the Silver Strip to get those items. When I got back at 12:05 pm (five minutes after noon on day 3) the door was closed again (only had the "Examine" prompt, instead of the "Tape it or Die" prompt)... it said "Locked" when I tried to open it. So I am not sure if it was that the door will always be locked after noon (12 pm) day 3, or if I just didn't make it back in time since I didn't have the two items on me when Wallace asked.

 

My opinion is that the door would NOT be open after 12 pm day 3 (once noon passes on day 3).

 

I did reload my save and made sure to grab the items before I went to the door so that I could give them to Wallace right away, but I have not had a chance to go back and reload that save and wait until after 12 pm (noon) has passed to see if the door would still open or not. Again my assumption is that it would be closed based on what I have experienced so far.

 

Debate on the topic?

can someone please confirm whether you can miss the case files and still do this? i got screwed up with the times and missed tape it or die 1. i don't have any prior saves and don't want to have to do the actual story cases a third time.

Sorry, but Tape it or Die 2 only appears after the military arrives, and to continue the game beyond this point, you need to have the case files done.

 

Actually you can save them after failing the case files. The military doesn't show up until 10 but these guys show up at around 9. You need the shortcut open and it'll be really close (I only had 15 minutes in game to spare) but it is doable. Just be in the store before 9 and they'll just appear, kill the zombies and run for it. Took a couple of tries since I was in the safe house when part 2 came up and just ran out of time as I was coming up to the vent ><

Jus got the damn door to open! good job sir!

After givin Katey the 'Brix' i cheesed it to Woodrow - got him to join, then, cheesed again to do WWJWD? an saved Ray(grabbed plates n saw here) - hoofed it to Atlantica Casino an cut those 3 money grubbers in half before takin Woody n Ray to safehouse.(at this point got Redneck snipers CS)

Quickly trotted over to Hotel for SlaveToFashion dodgin bullets - and promptly slaughtered her b4 making a break for the TiOd crew door and SUCCESS! it opened! ... jus had to spill the blood of 1 almost naked-chick.....an acceptable admission price to pay imo! ;D

Ill let you know in about an hour, its 09/26 09:22PM in game for me, and it has to be 09/27 06:00AM for door to open. I just need to get the 'Mid-lenght T-shirt Jeans" out of it. Make sure you dotn forget them when you go down there or you'll be in my predicament. :mad:

 

 

Same, i got these for when i was going for my 50 surivors and i forgot to change into the outfit when i was down there! now no matter what i try i cant get in!

The Tape it or Die 2 mission starts at 9:15 A.M. and the military comes at 10:00 A.M.. I didn't do any of the case files and I let Katie die. I've tried numerous times but the military always appears when I'm at/near the safe house.

 

If I do the case files and/or let Katie live, do I have more time to complete the mission? Because it seems impossible.

Thank you for this guide, it was very helpful.

 

I'm waiting for mission 2 to pop up, but now I'm concerned. I'm not doing the case files in this run, just the side stuff. If mission 2 pops up at 9:15, is 45 minutes of game time enough to complete this (as asked above)? I think if you kill the zombies, then have the survivors follow you up the stairs in the sports store across to the "New U" shortcut and then in to the safe room, you should have enough time. Am I correct?
