Let’s Play the Facility Level

Today, we are focused on the Facility level. This level draws inspiration from the beginning of the film where James Bond infiltrates a Soviet-era chemical weapons laboratory in Arkhangelsk, Russia.

Playing on 00 Agent, the mission objectives are:

  • Gain entry to laboratory area
  • Contact double agent (Dr. Doak)
  • Rendezvous with 006
  • Destroy all tanks in bottling room
  • Minimize scientist casualties

In the Xbox version of the game, you can unlock the achievement Now try gunning for 2:05 for 20 Gamerscore. All you have to do is complete the Facility level on any difficulty setting.

Tips for the Facility Level

Bond is infiltrating a Soviet military research facility, so the Facility level is stacked with loads of enemy soldiers. Try to use the silencer to avoid detection. Get the hang of it when you are in the bathroom as you can shoot one of the soldiers from the vents. As long as the guards do not fire their weapons, you should not draw attention to yourself.

Be careful not to blow up ammo crates or computer terminals in this level as civilian scientists are prone to dying from the explosions. One of your objectives is to minimize scientist casualties. As for the computer terminals, you need them to open security doors. If you accidentally blow up one of the computer terminals, you will need to find a scientist with a keycard.

Dr. Doak is one of the scientists in the laboratories. He will give you a keycard decoder. This is necessary to open the door to the bottling room where you meet with 006, Alec Trevelyan. Equip the mines and place them directly on the bottling tanks in a row. Just make sure that the game shows that you completed the objective to rendezvous with 006 before you blow up the tanks. All of the tanks need to be destroyed to complete the objective.

You can detonate the mines before Colonel Ourumov captures 006 or you can watch the sequence play out. Just be careful if you have low health since the soldiers will fire on you.
