View Full Version : how to get into nassif's office @ the start?

you all know the part where you go up the stairs, and you just see billie going in - for some reason, she feels the need to lock you out.
I want to know how to get in there. I almost succeeded once. I chose the "Let me sneak by the order guy" option inside the locker rooms, then hid behind a pillar in the gym. the order guy eventually left the gym, went upstairs and waited outside nassif's office, then when I went upstairs, billy came out of the elevator approached the office, and the order guy started shooting her - impeding her progress towards the door slightly. I was so surprised that I didn't take the extra time I got to try to wiggle my way past these two people (the office door was open, but billie couldn't go in because of the order guy).
I have failed to reproduce this effect of having the order guy act as a block. I'm wondering whether someone else has tried using a garbage can or that medical bed to block the office entrance - billie will still be in close proximity so the door will open, but she won't go in.

I would think that Billie will eventually get in there and you two will be stuck. The office elevator doesn't go anywhere.

I managed to do it -- once. Unfortunately, I don't remember what I did to slow Billie down (perhaps I threw a trash can).
Once inside, you can open the door, so you won't get stuck, but there' really not much to do after you talk with Billie.

going up the stairs triggers the event, you need to mantle up from the BB court...I used that cart. Not much in the office but an energy cell. Open the elevator & Billie just stands there waiting for the trigger :)
I actually managed to just barely make it into her office just by hauling butt up the stairs.
Comically when the triggered cut scene started I was inside the closed office but the back half of my characters frame was submerged in the door itself.
At the end of the cut scene I was able to re open the door and move freely in and out. The Office only has a power cell and as stated, when you go in the elevator Bobby just stands there and does not respond to anything.
Is there ANY way to get into the office at the WTO which is across the lobby from Commander Morganís office?

Yes. Wait until the guy finishes talking with Vera Maxwell and comes out. He leaves the door unlocked.
Ooops sorry Catman. I meant the office, behind the glass, across the lobby / waiting area form Morgan and the City managers office. It is to the right of the guarded elevator which leads you to the air hanger where Eve Johnson is waiting for you.
I know this may be wishful thinking but I honestly think that any area that is visible in a game should be accessible in the game. It is simply more realistic that way.
Remember how we all wanted to jump off the tram in HL.

You can't get there because it's designed to protect Klara. She's important and can't be killed yet. Maybe it's not realistic, but otherwise we'd have to go back to DX1's system of invincible characters, which is far more unrealistic.

What happens if you get into the office in Tarsus before Billie and then try and kill her?
Can you? Does anything change?

Billie has tons of hit points, and it would take all your ammo and probably a couple hours with the baton to take her down. In practical terms, she's invincible.

It seems that all AI are invincible in protected areas. I was able to persuade Sid Black to stop his exit from the Greasel Pit near the door. I re-entered the pit (to enable my weapons) and he was standing there. My weapons were enabled, but I could not kill him. He just stood there taking shots from my pistol and making stupid remarks. I tried whacking him with the energy blade for a long time, but nothing happened.
AI are placed in protected areas and on communicator hologram things, because neutralizing an important AI would screw up the plotline.

how does reentering the pit enable the weapons?

u can kill any one in the game by changing some files in the game thats what i would think would make things possible
