Carrington Institute Training

Combining a large number of offices, laboratories and hangars, the Carrington Institute's headquarters is well built and hidden from the outside world. All operations are planned and launched from here, with Daniel Carrington personally overseeing each mission from a link in his office. CI also has three training areas designed to give an agent experience in combat as well as the use of weapons and devices.

This experience can give you a much greater advantage out in the field, as you will already be familiar with your equipment. Once you beat all 32 weapons on gold as well as completing all 7 holo training and 10 devices you'll gain access to the special mission The Duel. Featured here are three guides to help you go through the training activities successfully.

Holo VR Training

The HR Training allows you to practice moving around, activating switches and fighting in hand-to-hand combat. There are 7 different training stages available, and each one becomes harder to complete than the previous. This section will help you to beat all 7 stages.

Holo 1 - Looking Around
Just search around the room for the four switches and look toward them to activate them. Two should be on the roof and the other two on the walls. Holo 1 - Click for larger view

Holo 2 - Movement 1
Holo 2 - Click for larger view You'll need to activate two switches that are surrounded by laser beams. First, crouch down and crawl under the beams on your left to reach the first switch. For the second one, you'll need to crouch right down to make it under the beams.

Holo 3 - Movement 2
You have to activate four switches on the far wall quickly before they reset themselves. First, go up to the switch on the far left, activate it, then quickly strafe right and activate each switch as you pass them. Holo 3 - Click for larger view

Holo 4 - Unarmed Combat 1
Holo 4 - Click for larger view First, knock out the guard standing in front of you. Another guard will appear and he'll run around randomly. Knock him out at your leisure. The last guard will charge at you and try to hit you. Punch him out before he gets a chance.

Holo 5 - Unarmed Combat 2
This one is a little tricky. First, switch to Disarm and knock out the first guard standing in front of you. Next, go behind the wall so that the moving guard can't see you, wait a few seconds, then rush out and knock him out from behind.

For the last one, hide behind the wall because he'll be firing at you. If you have any ammo from the Falcon 2's that you picked up from the other two guards, use it, otherwise you'll just have to dash out and rip into him while circling around him to dodge his fire.

Holo 6 - Live Combat 1
Holo 6 - Click for larger view Four unarmed guards in each corner of the room will come charging at you. Just knock out each one without getting hit to beat this stage.

Holo 7 - Live Combat 2
This is a tough one and will take a few tries. First, strafe left to hide behind the wall before the guards can fire. Wait for the two unarmed guards to come at you, then knock 'em out. Go up to the edge of the wall closest to the armed guards, then fly out and quickly disarm the closest guard.

Rush back behind the wall before you get hit, then take out the Falcon 2 you just picked up. Go to the edge of the wall and lean out to blast the last two guards, but make sure to hide behind the wall quickly before they get a chance to hit you as you can't get hit at all during this last stage.
