Malestrom Camp
Short Way ★★★★★

Stealth Route Guide

There is one route to take that will get you to all 4 of the elite guards in the building. You can ignore any of the other normal guards as you will only need to take out the specialists that are in the building

Short Way

This route requires you to have at least Technical 9 to open the gate on the east side of the camp. After opening it, you will only have to worry about one enemy outside of the building and one inside.

Long Way

This route will be the only choice if you do not have enough Technical. You will have to wrap around the entire camp by hugging the walls and going around to the west side of the camp. You will pass by a few Maelstrom on the way to the building.

Guns Blazing Route Guide

A full-frontal assault is not recommended as there are quite a number of enemies in the area. Even with Rogues help it can prove quite a challenge. The sneaking routes are quite easy and straightforward so there is not a reason not to use them unless you are caught.

Chippin' In Secret Ending Choices

Secret Ending Dialogue Choices

This mission will have the choices that will determine whether or not you will be able to unlock the secret ending. These dialogue choices will present themselves when talking to Johnny at his grave, you will need to select the following choices to unlock the secret ending.

Objective Icon.pngJohnny: But I've managed one thing for now. Not to fuck this up, what we have.
Reply: Nah, fucked that up too.
Objective Icon.pngJohnny: Ahem, is it too late to ask for a second chance?
Reply: What do you want from me?
Objective Icon.pngJohnny: At least, so it seemed... till now.
Reply: OK, but as second chances go, this is your last

To unlock the secret ending, “Don't Fear the Reaper,” you will need to call out Johnny on his past actions and not to be overfriendly with him, but not too hostile either. Let him know he let you down, but you're willing to give him another chance. This will change your relationship with Johnny. You won't be too forgiving of him and the shit he pulled on you, but you won't be too hostile and push him away either.

How to Get the Secret Ending

Tips and Strategies

Get Johnny's Porsche

Grayson will offer you something of Johnny's in return for sparing him, but even if you do choose to kill him you can pick up the access card off of his body. If you do kill him, the game will immediately direct you to your next location rather than tell you how to use the card. Go up the ladder to the left of where Grayson was and press the button to lower a shipping container. Head back down off the ship and open up the container to get a new car, Johnny's Porsche.
