    Break the rules in Test Chamber 07

    This can be gained in Chapter 2 – Test Chamber 7.

    This one is a lot easier than is seems but you would miss it without knowing you could do it. Play the chamber as normal up until the point of walking through the exit door.

    The disintegration field on the door is broken, so head through it and place a portal on the wall on the other side of it. Now head back into the main chamber and put another portal on another passable wall. Now pick the cube up, walk through it and head to the lift for the achievement to unlock.

  • I have the feeling that this will be my favorite achievement. Just because of my loved CC
  • I have a feeling you have to save the companion cube. YES.
  • That would be awesome
  • The companion cube returns? Please release a Limited Edition with a companion cube in it!
  • Why does everyone love the companion cube so much? It's just a cube with a heart symbol on it...
  • @5 That's precisely why we love him/her/it! Companion Cube
  • We love the Companion Cube because it first loved us!
  • "We love the Companion Cube because it first loved us!" If you happen to be a girl pezjono I hope the Companion Cube didn't "love" you too deeply. Ouch! ;)
  • Should be Interesting Getting the Cube past the Appature Science Field
  • Will we get piecake this time???
  • the cake is gone for ever and ever noooooooo.... ;)
  • Save the Cube!!!!!
  • save the companion
  • (in GlaDOS' voice) "you euthenized your faithful companion cube more quickly than any test subject on record."
  • save the cube save the world
  • "Your companion cube will never try to stab you"
  • YES! WE CAN SAVE THE CUBE! Well, GLaDOS ain't gonna like this...
  • The *SPOILER* The emancipation grid is down so Glados tells you not to take anything out of the test chamber, you can get the CC out and take it to the elevator, but she'll zap it before you actually save it :(
  • #18 way to ruin it for everyone...i have already did it, but that doesnt mean everyone else has
  • Did this achievement. Fun little thing to do.
  • Great achievement pic
  • I'm stuck on how to do this, can someone explain what i'm supposed to do?
  • I love you Companion Cube
  • "I think that one was about to say, 'I love you.'" Damn you to hell, GLaDOS! XD
  • HOW TO GET THE ACHIEVEMENT SPOILER!!!: after your done flying over to the final door in chapter GLaDOS will ask you not to take anything with you. fire a portal into the hallway and walk back in the testing chamber. Grab your cube off the button and drop down to the main room, the one with the laser. While holding your cube make a use your other portal and walk through, bringing the cube in the hallway.
  • Got this on my first play through as well without knowing it was an achievement. Figured I would try to smuggle the cube just to hear her response when she notified me the grids were down. 20 GS was all the much sweeter to add to it.
  • i tried to get it out, but didnt see the white wall to shoot in the hallway. so dumb. what chapter was this?
  • What chapter?
  • I just went back to verify that it is Chapter 2.
  • I like how it's one of the achievements you get by messing around like you do, and not going out of your way to get it.
  • Great Achievement!
  • If you place the CC on the very edge of the button that opens the panels that catch you when you wen u jump to the exit, you can stand on the edge and crouch and pick up the CC EASY !!! ALL GLORY TO THE COMPANION CUBE!!! Take that GLaDOS!!!!
  • uhiuh
  • Isn't anyone here clever enough to realise this isn't the Companion Cube? It's a regular cube....
  • Actually #34 it is a companion cube, you should have been clever enough to notice it has the pink hearts on it. Think you need to check the facts before you cast judgments on the intelligence of others :-)

  • Oops stupid iphone
  • For some reason, I spent 20 minutes trying to steal the cube in my first play though but gave up. I'll try again, and succeed this time!
  • Ill get it tomorrow. Actually, I haven't finished the whole game, but I'll come back for that cube that explodes anyway. I like PotaDOS the best.
  • i saved the cube just because i loved it and it would never lie to me btw i love how like half of the peeps that posted on this have the cc as thier gamer pic :D
  • i just got this game today, and i stopped playing the game for a little bit right after that test chamber.
  • well..im skipping that achievement! :o
  • CC was about to confess his love for Chell when he gets destroyed. But oh well, there are warehouses full of him.
  • "Why does everyone love the companion cube so much? It's just a cube with a heart symbol on it..." It speaks to me and loves me back :O
  • I had forgotten how much my companion cube meant to me in the first game. Didn't cry... but it was close.
  • i love the companion cube, lol
