2. Intro

Hello there. My name is InfernalColonel (my parents wanted
something unusual) and I love Half-life. Now I've played
every Half-life game there is, so why not write a guide?
This game is Half-life: Blue Shift, starring Barney (that
security guard who was everywhere in Half-life 1.

3. Walkthrough

Begin! Just another day at Black Mesa... or is it. Anyways
the intro is similar to that of the original Half-life. 
When your transit car comes to a stop get out and go to 
the door.


While you wait for the door to open, look at the transit 
car passing by. Notice someone familiar? When you enter 
Black Mesa your going to want to follow the green arrow 
to Area 3 security. Go down the two flights of stairs and
go through the door. When you enter the lobby follow the
red arrow to personnel facilities. Your stuff is in the
second row of lockers, pretty obvious, grab your armor and
go back to the lobby. The security at the desk will talk
about elevator problems and will ask you to help. Your
going to follow the blue arrow into the armory. Take the
elevator down. When you reach the bottom continue 
following the blue arrow. Go to the guy behind the glass
to get your pistol. You can go to the target range and
get some practice if you want. After your done go back
and take the elevator up. When you get in the lobby, go
to the front door and go back to where the wall says:
Refreshments, H-E Particle labs and area 3 security. 
Follow the red arrow to the H-E particle labs. After the
security guard opens the door, follow the red arrow up
the stairway and into the room with the scientists fixing
the computer. 

Follow the linear path into the room with
the pop machines. When you enter the transit room make a
right and go down the ladder that says maintenance access.
Go through the door and down the flight of stairs. When
your in the no smoking area move the barrel out of the
way and enter the door. Activate your flashlight in this
room and go up the ladder. In the area with the water, 
press the button for the bridge. While you wait notice 
the G-man by you. Go up the flight of stairs and when you
reach the sector G main access lift sign, follow it.
Enter the elevator and activate the panel. The elevator
will stop about half way with a warning sign. When the
lights go red, look at everything thats going on. The
elevator will crash.

"Duty Calls"

Exit the elevator and grab the crowbar. Make a right and
kill the two screamers. Don't go down the stairs. Keep
going right and smash boxes with your crowbar, grab a
clip on the shelf and smash the boxes to enter the hall
way. When you see the broke panel with a warning sign 
above it, smash it with your crowbar. The lights will go
out so activate your flashlight and go back to the 
stairs and go down. Use the pannel and go through the
level four door. Kill the headcrabs to your right. Don't 
step in the water because it will hurt you. Instead jump
on the table and go to the other side. Kill the headcrab
in the room, grab the clips on the shelf, and go up the
ladder. Talk to the scientist amd go back down to the
left side. You will see some explosive barrels behind a
gate. Shoot them and go through the destroyed gate. Make

them. Now enter the door to your left and activate the 
switch for the south access. Go through the south access

health. Kill the screamer behind the boxes and crawl 
under the door. Kill the screamer and go to the crane 
control unit. Position the left panel so it's halfway
between the Black Mesa boxes. Move the right panel down
just a little bit. Move the small box under the left 
panel box and jump up until you reach the ladder. Climb
it up and go up to the left. When you reach the room
with busted lights kill the shockers to your right and
left. Two more shockers will appear so kill them. Go 
to the right side, climb up the ladder directly in front 
of you, turn the valve and continue on. Don't go through
