|description||Enter the buggy, and a big magnet will move you away. However, the magnet
fails, and you'll land upside down, and take a bit damage. Leave the car and flip it over with your Gravity Gun. Enter it again, because Antlions seem to enjoy attacking you. Find the ships, and drive on the hill, right of them. Use turbo to jump over the ramp. Hooray! Follow the path. When you see a shack, you can explore a bit there for goodies. Continue through the tunnel.
Just keep going, and you'll find a house. The front door is jammed, but if you go around the house, and smash open the barricade, you'll be able to get in. Explore for goodies. When you're done, continue, to the next house. In the small shack are goodies, and in the house are Combines, supplies and a device that allows you to see a town you'll visit soon. Head back to the buggy and go to the next house. Kill the Combines here, and get any supplies you want. Now drive to town and leave the Buggy.
Someone will tell you to go to the basement, so do so. You'll get a short description of the RPG, and you'll be the lucky one to use it. It's time for a battle now. With the RPG, you'll have to take down the Gunship. If you're out of ammo, look around for rockets. You'll find plenty. A medic will always follow you, in case you get hurt. When the Gunship is destroyed, head back to the basement, and you'll be thanked. Go to your buggy, and the villagers will open the gate. Leave the town and keep going.
See the crane? You need to enter it. Go there, and take out anything that wants to kill you. Once you are in the crane, more Combines will shoot at you. You can pick up a container, and drop it on them. Find a bridge that's holding you back from going there with your buggy. Flip it over by throwing a container at it. Pick up your buggy, and place it somewhere near the bridge. Go down, but don't enter the buggy yet. Go to the new area, and kill the Combines inside the building. Find a lever here to open the gate. Get in your buggy, and get driving. Find a ramp, and use it to jump through the windows. Continue to drive, and watch out for the Gunship. You'll end up in a tunnel.
Continue the driving, and search the houses if you want. Drive, until you see a field that you can't drive through (just like the ones near the trains in chapter 2). Follow the cables, and you'll see it ends up near a car. The car is on a hill, and the blocks near the wheels are there to prevent the car from rolling down. Use your Gravity Gun to get rid of the blocks, and the car will start to drive. This'll cut the power of the field, and you can go through. Do so.
If you already want to get the crossbow, climb the hill you find around here.
See all the houses? The biggest one is the one you'll need. On the upper floor (reach it by stacking up some stuff near the stairs), you can find a Crossbow. Once you found it, a Piggy Tail Zombie will appear, so I suggest to leave as soon as you got it. See the bridge? Good. There are even more fields here, so you can't go there with your buggy for now. Find a door near the bridge, and enter it. Follow the path.
The idea is to get to the other side of the bridge. Explore for goodies, but you'll mainly need those on your way back. Notice the rockets and health packs you obviously don't need at this moment. Once you reached the other side of the bridge, you'll end up in a room with a field. Kill the Combines in here, and use your Gravity Gun to pull the plug out. This will cut the power, and all the fields are down. Also hit the switch. A Gunship will appear, so head back to the middle of the bridge. There is a crate with rockets here, and this should be enough to take the Gunship down. Once you did, head back to the buggy. You'll have to take a different route. Just keep going.
Go go go! When you are outside, you'll see Antlions attack a Piggy Tail Zombie. Try to avoid fighting, and just find your way back to the buggy. You'll probably have to kill a few Antlions and Combines though. Take the buggy to the bridge, and follow the trail. A train will appear on the other side, but if you use turbo, you should be able to make it without getting hit.Follow the path, and enter the tunnel to end this chapter.
