This guide will give you some tips for getting past the "Frickin' Laser Beams" unscathed, getting you an achievement.

Frickin' Laser Beams Guide



Description



Frickin' Laser Beams - Don't get caught by those frickin' laser beams.

The laser beams appear just after you finish the Weird West booth, and ride the elevator outside. After going into the room, dropping down, and opening the doors, you'll be presented with a corridor filled with laser beams. Each set of laser beams will increase in difficulty.

Laser Beams



First Laser Beam

This one is simple. You can walk under it with ease, as the laser will go way above your head.



Second Laser Beam

This one requires you to crouch. Crouch first, and ease up on to the laser. When the timing is right, cross the beam. Make sure to fully cross it, because it can hit your back or leg behind you.

Alternatively, you can slide under it. Press forward (w) and then press the slide button (ctrl) to slide. Just make sure you fully cross the barrier. If you stand too soon, your head will hit the laser.



Third Laser Beam

This one follow the same idea as the second laser beam, but with a little bit tighter timing. I was able to crouch past it easily. Sliding worked well too.



Fourth Laser Beam

This one is tough, and definitely requires sliding to get past. The gap is easy to time the sliding. Watch the pattern for a few cycles, then run at it, then slide. I was able to get through via the center opening, but use which ever works best.

Alternatively, you can cheese it! See Cheesing The Last Two for more information.



Fifth Laser Beam

This one pretty much requires you to cheat. In fact, I believe it's part of the puzzle, so it's not really cheating. But, if you wanted to attempt this laser, you gotta time your slide perfectly. I cheesed it, because I wanted the chieve. HA!



Cheesing The Last Two



For the last two lasers, you can actually cheese them pretty easily. You may even to do the last three, if your aim is really good.

If you look at the very end of the corridor, you'll see a security booth with a glowing red box. This is the same box you shot at the beginning of the game, before you got access to your attendee badge in the security office.



Shoot this red box, and all of the lasers will turn off. You can walk freely, and you'll get the achievement (If you didn't get caught on the previous lasers). This is a very good idea to do before you attempt the final laser.



Conclusion



Once you finish the lasers, you'll be done and you'll have a new achievement. Remember, if you get caught, you'll have to attempt to get the achievement on your next play-through.

I recommend, if you get caught, and you're still trying to find the collectibles, don't restart your game. Finish your run, and get all the collectibles. After that, start a new game, and speed run all the way to the lasers. It takes about 10 minutes to get there.
