Killzone 2 Walkthru Part IV: Salamun District
[This is the fourth of a series of Killzone 2 walkthrus we'll be publishing, all with videos and all written by gamer Alex Juel. If you have questions about the game, please don't hesitate to post them here and Alex will do his best to answer them. If you haven't already read it, start with Killzone 2: Corinth River, Killzone 2: Blood Meridian and Killzone 2: Visari Square, and stay tuned for subsequent parts, too!]
Here's a summary of the game's storyline (courtesy of Wikipedia): Killzone 2 is set on the planet Helghan, the home-world of the Helghast who invaded an Interplanetary Strategic Alliance (ISA) colony. Two years after the Helghast assault on Vekta, the ISA has launched an assault on the enemy's homeworld. The ISA goal is to capture the Helghast leader, Scolar Visari, and bring the Helghast war machine to a halt.
In the game you assume the role of Sergeant Tomas "Sev" Sevchenko, a battle-hardened veteran of the special forces unit Alpha Team, who are on a mission to eliminate the Helghast threat. During the invasion, Sev's unit is deployed behind enemy lines to assist the main invasion force. Responsible for securing the enemy capital of Pyrrhus, the team quickly discovers that the Helghast are a formidable enemy. Not only have they adjusted to Helghan's hostile conditions, they have also harnessed the power of the frequent lightning storms.
A cold, barren, unforgiving world, Helghan provides a ready defense with thick, acidic air, dust clouds, and violent lightning storms. Sev discovers his squad is not just fighting enemy forces - their fiercest opponent may be the planet itself.
Now, ready to get started? Great!
After the mortars hit, you'll find yourself down below the bridge on the bank of the canal.
There is a tunnel with an electrical field blocking the way a few steps forward. To disable the field, shoot the small box right above the tunnel opening. Go to the end of the tunnel and you'll come to an opening to the left.
Do not go through the opening yet. There are two Helghast directly ahead of the opening that you can kill before going out into the open. This way you can still take cover in the tunnel as they shoot back.
SYMBOL! After killing the two Helghast you can leave the tunnel. Look straight forward and down to the left a little bit and you'll see a symbol on the wall. Shoot it and turn right on the walkway. Be careful here because there's a laser trip wire before going down the ladder.
There is a Helghast hiding right below the walkway you're on, but he won't show himself until you drop onto the ladder so be prepared to attack him. You can take less damage if you grap onto the ladder and immediately climb back up onto the platform.
After killing him, take the ladder down to the ground. Climb up the ladder onto the platform where the two Helghast you already killed were at and go up the stairs.
Dushan Tower Courtyard
After going through the doorway, you'll meet up with Garza, who's standing up above on the third floor. As he's talking to you, the Helghast will drop in.
Start working you're way up the where Garza's at.There will be a Helghast right at the top of the stairs before going up to the second floor.
INTEL CASE! You'll come to a room where the Helghast bust through the wall. There is an intel case on the countertop closest to the windows. In the next room there's a flamethrower if you want to have a little fun.
Go up the stairs to the third floor and finish off the rest of the Helghast before meeting up with Garza. Follow him to the loading bay.
Dushan Loading Bay
Load up on ammo and wait for Garza to unlock the door. Follow him through and stop where he stops. There is a mortar around the corner with several Helghast surrounding it. There is also an enemy up above the mortar to the left on a machine gun.
After killing these guys, you'll find a couple more of them in the hallway to the right of the mortar and one more on a machine gun up above to the right.Kill them and set a charge on the mortar to destroy it.
Go through the hallway and enter a large room with one Helghast hiding behind the crates near the stairs. There will be a Helghast right at the top of the stairs and two hiding behind the concrete wall.
INTEL CASE! After leaving the room, get on one of the machine guns and kill the attacking Helghast. When you get the chance, turn left and go into the small room, where you'll find an intel case on the floor.
Go back to Garza and let him unlock the next set of doors. There are two Helghast waiting behind these doors with shotguns, so prepare to shoot as soon as the doors open.
SYMBOL! After going through the doors, immediately turn left, walk all the way to walkway, turn right and you'll see the symbol up above the last doorway.
Find Garza and go up the stairs. There are two Helghast shooting at you from behind when you reach the top of the stairs and two more will come at you from the front. After clearing the floor, destroy the mortar.
Turn around and find the hallway. When the doors open, there will be several more shotgun wielding Helghast. Continue forward and follow Garza down the holes in the floors down to the underground tunnel.
SYMBOL! Move through the water all the way to the end. Turn to the right before leaving the water and you'll see the symbol way up on the wall.
Follow Garza to where the survivor is at and prepare to defend yourself because Helghast will start attacking from all over. After killing everyone, more Helghast will repel down from a drop ship into the middle of the area.
There will also be a several Helghast in the back with missile launchers you should watch out for too. After eliminating all enemies, follow Garza into the sewers. There are several laser trip wires in here.
Go up the ladder and meet back up with your teamates.
SYMBOL! After going up the ladder to ground level, look way up on the building on the left to find another symbol.
Speak with Rico through the gate who'll give you orders to kill the attacking Helghast on the roof, then go around the corner and blow up the laser trip wire on the wall.
There will be two Helghast on the left and a couple on the rooftop. You can ignore the ones on the roof for now. Set a charge on the door and blow it up. A few Helghast will drop down from the second floor to attack you.
INTEL CASE! There is an intel case sitting on the counter on the first floor in front of the stairs that lead up the next floor.
Go upstairs and clear the floor of all enemies, then set charges on each of the columns. Sprint out of the building to avoid any Helghast trying to attack and hit the trigger to blow up the explosives.
