|description||Follow the tunnel, till you reach a bunch of cars. Leave the car, and enter
the area on the right for goodies. Go back in the car, drive a bit forth, and quickly go back. Quite a few Zombies will attack, so be ready for them. When you're sure they're all gone, move the cars out of the way, and follow the tunnel again. If you see cars on the road ahead, go a bit right, and follow the path. You can explore the houses for supplies, but once you reached the upper floor, a few Rolling Mines will appear, so watch out for them. Get back to your buggy and keep going. You'll reach a barricade. Take out the Combines and Rolling Mines, and explore if you want. Go back in the buggy, and get past the barricade, by just driving straight into it. Easy as that.
You'll end up at a small town that's blocked by a truck. Leave the buggy, and take cover. A Dropship will arrive, and Combines will start to attack. Shoot them, and then it's hunting time. You'll need batteries to open the gate. You can find a few of them, but you only need 2. One is near the bed, one is underneath a bathtub, and another one is on a plate, that you can see by looking up. Shoot bricks at the plate, so it falls down. The battery will fall down too. Once the gate is open, go to your buggy, and continue driving (you can pass the truck on the right side of it). Go through the tunnel.
You'll end up at a lighthouse. Good, good. Someone will try to get your attention. Better listen then. Step out of your buggy, and listen to the man. "Put the buggy in the garage". Great! Go back in the buggy, and do so. Wave the buggy goodbye, because you won't use it anymore. If you want to talk about this with me, because you feel bad and stuff, don't hesitate to mail me. Anyway, Dropships will arrive and drop Combines. You'll have to survive the attack of 4 Dropships. After that, a Gunship will arrive. Enter the lighthouse, and find a box with rockets. Shoot the Gunship down, get new supplies (yes, also health) if you need it.
Once the Gunship is destroyed, someone will take you down, and open a door for you. Take that path.
See how the Combines take away your buggy? Bastards! If you want to cry, sit down, and do so. When you're over it, keep going. You'll find a man who sits on the rocks. He'll warn you not to step on the sand, because the Antlions will appear when you do. However, his friend will move, and Antlions will appear. Kill them, and keep going. If you find supply-boxes on your way, just get them using your Gravity Gun. Don't bother with most of the boxes, since they'll be out of your reach. After a while, you'll reach a small puzzle. On one side the a big wooden structure, is a box. If you remove it, you'll be able to continue, since the thing will move up. You can go 2 ways from here.
One of the paths will bring you to a shack. Go there for supplies. The other will bring you further, towards Nova Prospekt. After some jumping, you won't find any rocks anymore. Do you need to run through the sand? No, please don't do that. Grab 2 things you can stand on. Boxes, plates, whatever suits you. Place one in front of you, and step on it. Grab the other one, and step on that one. Turn around, and place the previous object in front of you. It'll take a while this way, but at least you're safe. You can explore the houses, or just go straight ahead. Whatever you want.
Once you reached the other side of the beach, and go over the small hill, you'll see a lot of sand, and almost no objects. Just jump down, and you'll have to battle a Antlion Warrior. No big deal. Just run around, keep strafing, and shoot, shoot, shoot! He'll summon Antlions, but just ignore them. If you focus on the Antlion Warrior, he'll be down real soon.
Killed it? Good. A Vortigaunt will appear, and will open the Antlion Warrior for you. You can now grab the Pheropod, also known as Bug Bait. Follow the Vortigaunt into the base, and he'll explain how to use the Pheropod. He'll open a gate for you. Follow the path.
With your army of Antlions, you'll be stronger than ever before. However, the Antlions are afraid of the devices that'll stomp on the ground. You can turn them off, and that way they'll keep following you. Just keep going, turning of devices, and kill Combines when you see them.
After a while, you can't go any further down the beach. You'll simply get shot. Look to the left, and you'll see a hill. If you follow that hill, you can continue. You'll find a building, with a few Man hacks and Combines. Kill them, and leave the building on the other side. Keep going a bit further, and enter the bunker you see. Quite a few Combines will start to attack you, so shoot them off. Be sure the Antlions are helping you too. Once most of themare dead, head in that direction, and just follow the path.
