____________________________I.I Introduction__________________________________

Hi, my gamefaqs name is ieatdirttoo, however my real name is David Donaldson. 
I live in St Louis missouri and Im seventeen about to start my Senior Year
in High School. I first got my NES back in 1993(I know it was old even then).
Since then Ive been hooked on Video Games. I use Notepad to create guides, 
and I highly reccomend it since its so simple to use. I tried using wordpad, 
but I found out that it isnt the best tool for making guides. I also tried 
Microsoft Word, which was just to complicated. I make guides on a DELL 2400 or
a Compaq Presario. Neither one of them is very good for gaming, except for
Older Games.

I spend 2-4 hours a day in front my TV playing games. I own a Playstation 2, 
Xbox, Playstation, Nintendo 64, SNES, NES, anda Dreamcast. I am not exactly
what you would call a Harcore gamer but I do play video games a lot.

Im play games on a 27 inch HDTV. I have a surrond sound system which supports
both DOLBY Pro Logic and 5.1 Surround Sound. I usually play after school, but 
if its summer time then ill play during the day. I find that my surround sound
system really makesa difference an makes me more excited when Im running 
around Omaha beach in Medal of Honor: Frontline. I use the Controller S, which
seems to fit my hands better than the huge origintal controller. I think that 
Microsoft went in the right direction making its controllers designed for
a FPS, since most Xbox games are shooting games.

As of now I only have one other faq, its for The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape
from Butcher Bay. 

______________________________I.II Max Payne__________________________________

Max Payne 2 takes off right where the original left off. Max is a gritty 
depressed cop back to Work at the NYPD. After losing his family and his lover
Mona Sax he is an emotianal wreck. Doused up to the eyeballs on painkillers
and Anti-Depressing pills, he thinks that nothing is left in his life. During
a bust at a Vladamir Len warehouse he finds Mona Sax, alive. Thus starts the
game.

While this game isnt a Halo, its a pretty good game. Its set in 3rd person,
meaning you can see Max's Entire Body. Max Payne himself has been changed.
He no longer carrys his scrunched up constapation face. He is now much older
and darker looking. His cloths have changed as well. While he still wears his
black leather jacket, he has ditched the Leather skin undershrit and now 
wears a tie. His voice has also been slightly changed, but it is still a good
voice-over.

The graphics in this game are pretty decent. The character models are all
in porportian and real looking. People's faces are decent too, Max's looks
very real. The enviorments are heavily detailed, but very bland. Alot of the
objects in the PC version are missing, which makes comparison difficult. All
in all the graphics are polished pretty nicely, but they could have easily
been better. These graphics clearly do not take advantage of the Xbox's power
but they are better than the PS2 version. The game also supports HDTV support
of up to 480p.
 
The sound in this game is definitally top-notch. All the voice acting and 
death crys sound realistic and intense. During key moments the music will
swell up to further intensify the situation. All of the gune fire and weapons
sound authentic. Almost every gun has a different sound, including the 
grenades and rocket launchers. Overall the sound is awesome, and much better
than the original.

______________________________I.VI Weapons____________________________________

9MM PISTOL(DUAL) 
                  
Damage        - **        
Rate of Fire  - ***
Accuracy      - ***
  
DUAL

Damage        - ****       
Rate of Fire  - ******
Accuracy      - *


Description: Rapid Firing Handguns deadly at close range. These weapons are 
used the entire game and remain good all the way up to the end. You can choose
to weild one or dual handguns, but in this case dual is better. They dont fire
as fast as ingrams but they still fire pretty fast. This gun also has a clip
size of 16, meaning that you can shoot 32 bullets at an enemy in avout 5 
seconds!

DESERT EAGLE(DUAL)

Damage        - *****       
Rate of Fire  - *
Accuracy      - *****
  
DUAL

Damage        - *****       
Rate of Fire  - ***
Accuracy      - ***


Description: The desert eagle is like a sniper in pistol form. The accuracy
of this gun is superb. It also is extremly powerful, usually making targets
fly backswards. Although it is extremly powerful it still might take 2 shots
to kill someone, but not likely. It has the accuracy of an MP5, so use that
to your advantage. However, it does have a slow rate of fire. When you weild 
dual Desert Eagles it reduces the accuracy but greatly inproves the rate of 
fire.

INGRAMS(DUAL)

Damage        - ****        
Rate of Fire  - ****
Accuracy      - **
  
DUAL

Damage        - *****        
Rate of Fire  - *******
Accuracy      - *


Description: This is one of the more famous weapons. It delivers fully
automatic fire with high damage and low accuracy. This is personally my 
favorite weapon to use. It sacrafices accuracy to deliver automatic fire 
second to none. When using dual Ingrams accuracy if further decreased but rate
of fire doubles. This is definitally best suited for short-med range combat.
All in all this is a great weapon.

STRIKER

Damage        - *******      
Rate of Fire  - *****
Accuracy      - *
  
DUAL

Damage        - N/A      
Rate of Fire  - N/A
Accuracy      - N/A


Description: The striker is basically just an Automatic shotgun. It serves
its purpous very well. You can take this into a room of 20 guys and pretty
much shread them in 10 seconds. Like other shotguns its bullets spread making
it more deadly. Since its Automatic its rate of fire is pretty decent, about
5 shells per second. Also like the other shotguns its made for short range
combat, not long range. 

PUMP ACTION SHOTGUN

Damage        - *******     
Rate of Fire  - *
Accuracy      - *
  
DUAL

Damage        - N/A      
Rate of Fire  - N/A
Accuracy      - N/A

Description: This is you standerd police issue shotgun. It is very deadly at
close range but unnacurate. It fires 7 buckshots at a decent rate. While 
this weapon is ideal for close combat your gonna look like an idiot if your
sniping with it. It also spreads out for area damage thus making it easy to 
hit two targets. However, this weapon is a bit underpowered so you may have
to shoot your target twice before he will die.

SAWED OFF SHOTGUN

Damage        - ********     
Rate of Fire  - ***
Accuracy      - *
  
DUAL

Damage        - N/A      
Rate of Fire  - N/A
Accuracy      - N/A

Description: This weapon is basically a shortened double barreled shotgun 
with its handle sawed off. Like the shotgun this weapon excells in in close
range combat, but is even more unnacurate in long range combat due to its
shortened barrel. However this weapon also fires 2 shots almost at the same
time, which makes it much more usefull than the shotgun. Also it is not 
underpowered so you dont have to worry about that.

MP5

Damage        - ******     
Rate of Fire  - *****
Accuracy      - ******
  
DUAL

Damage        - N/A      
Rate of Fire  - N/A
Accuracy      - N/A

Description: New to the series the MP5 deliveres a fast firing rate with high 
damage and a scope. While it mostly shows up later in the game it is still 
very uselfull for taking out multiple opponents at range. To use the scope 
press X. If you want to zoom hold down X. This weapon can be used for either 
close or long range combat, but I reccomend using it for long range since its 
really accurate and may not hit your target unless your crosshairs are exactly
on it.

M4 Carbine

Damage        - *********      
Rate of Fire  - ******
Accuracy      - *********
  
DUAL

Damage        - N/A      
Rate of Fire  - N/A
Accuracy      - N/A

Description: This magnificant weapon is found later in the game. High rate 
of fire, super high damage and accuracy matched to the sniper rifle make this
one of the best weapons in the game. This weapon is suited for any kind of 
combat, including sniping. ITs high damage make it extremly usefull, and the
fact that its an automatic rifle further increase its usefulness. Believe it
or not there is on problem, the M4 is simply too accurate. With most machine 
guns you can aim anywher close the tagret and it will hit them, but this 
gun crosshair's need to be right on the target to hit it.

KALASHNIKOV

Damage        - ******     
Rate of Fire  - ****
Accuracy      - ****
  
DUAL

Damage        - N/A      
Rate of Fire  - N/A
Accuracy      - N/A

Description: While not as good as the M4 this weapon certainly isnt crap. 
Almost every modern fps has this too, because it is the most popular gun ever
to be manufactured. It fires at a decent semi-auto rate and can kill a man 
easily. Its accuracy is also pretty good, but not comparable to the M4. I
reccomend this from short to med-long combat because thats what its good for.
Accuracy isnt reliable after the first shot so remember that. Overall this
weapon is a great addition.

SNIPER RIFLE

Damage        - ********     
Rate of Fire  - *
Accuracy      - ********
  
DUAL

Damage        - N/A      
Rate of Fire  - N/A
Accuracy      - N/A

Description: This is you standard video game sniper rifle. Extremly high 
damage and perfect accuracy make this weapon very usefull. This is better then
its Dragunov counterpart. It makes up for its low rate of fire with the 
ability to instant kill anyone. Enemys dont use this weapon either(except for
cutscenes). Its accuracy is also perfect, meaning no matter what the distance
the bullet will go exactly where you point it.

DRAGUNOV

Damage        - *******      
Rate of Fire  - ****
Accuracy      - ******
  
DUAL

Damage        - N/A      
Rate of Fire  - N/A
Accuracy      - N/A

Description: This weapon is a variation of the sniper rifle with imprved rate 
of fire but decreased accuracy. Only Mona gets to use this, so Max doesn't 
need to bother with it. It has the Accuracy of an MP5, and the rate of fire
of a Desert Eagle. I guess this weapon is somewhat usefull, but Its made to
snipe, and the other sniper rifle does it better. It will most likely kill 
your target in one hit, but sometimes you will have to hit your target twice.
Overall its a decent weapon, but for sniping the normal sniper is much better.

GRENADES

Description: These weapons are exactly what you think they are. Throw one and
it will bounce around for a second then blow up killing anything near it. You
can bounce them off walls, floors, whatever to get it to your target. They 
deliver an explosive radious of 5 feet from wherever it lands. These are best
suited for short range combat since it is rather difficult to throw the 
grenade where you want to it go if your far away. Also it may explode before
it gets there. 

MOLITOVS

Description: This weapon is basically a Bottle of flammable liquid with a rag
in it set on fire. When you throw it it will explode on impact, not bounce 
like the grenade. Just chuck it an enemy and watch them burn to a crisp. Like
the grenade its best in short range, but dont throw it to short or you will
set yourself on fire.

COMING SOON

_______________________________I.VIII. Characters_____________________________

Max Payne: A man with nothing ahead in his life. After losing his wife and
daughtr to V-Junkies, he has been a walking deathtrap. He seeks death, as he
thinks it will releave him from all of his emotional stress. However, despite
his dissaproval he has cheated death several times. In the original game he
worked for the N.A.R.C. department, but now he finds himself a homicide 
detective at the NYPD. He is known to be brutal and to break the rules and
the law for that matter in his attempt to bring down criminals. He himself
is a dark silent character. He continues to blend his work with his emotinal
life, which constantly gets him into trouble.

Mona Sax: Known as a hired hitman(or women) on the street, she has earned a 
reputation. She herself is a mysterious soft character whos appearence could
easily fool someone. Her and Max first met in Jack Lupinos nightclub. Since
then they have had a on/off relationship, which ended when Max "thought" he
saw her get shot in the head. However, this game is mostly about her believe
it or not, and you actually playa as her. Her and Max get more involved in
this game, and don't seem to want to hold back on their relationship. 

Vladamir Lem: First introduced to you in the original, Vlad is your "friend".
He is a former black arms dealer who has mended his ways or so he says. He
is trying to open a new resturant called Vodka, which he proclaims will be
the best resturant in town. He is currently at War with the Mafia and Vinnie
Gognitti(ha ha ha, if you see Vinnie in the original you will know why I am
laughing). His former girlfriend is Annie Finn, a liscensed gunsmith that was
killed by some cleaners in the first chapters. After that he finds a new 
girlfriend, but something isnt right. Everything feels connected as Max puts
it.

Vinnig Gognitti: This guy defines the term "loser". He use to work for Jack
Lupino, a crazy Viking worshiper who tried to kill you. He now runs his own
used car lot near his apartment. This guy really is out of it. He calls vlad
the "****ing Russian". His real buisness however is black arms, which is
why he wants Vlad out of the picture. He also loves the Captain Baseball Bat
franchise, which ultimitly leads to his death. For the time you know him in
this game he is pitifull, and you even help but just because your a cop and
he tells you that he will help you.


_______________________________I. IX Game Basics______________________________

Bullet Time: This is what makes this 3rd Person Shooter different from most
others. Basically this slows down time while still allowing you to aim 
normally. This makes taking down a room full of enemy's much easier. In the
original Max Payne there was a bullet time jump that was very usefull when
jumping into a room with an unknown number of enemys. It stil exists but now
it doesnt even take any bullet time away and still has the same effects. 
Bullet time runs of a bar located next to your health, and it will deplete 
quickly so use it wisely!

Shootdodging: Shoot dodging is the art of preforming fast rolls to avoid being
shot. This is usefull when you dont have any bullet time left or when the 
situation calls for it. It lets you do quick evasive rolls but usually
backfires on you. I really don't recommend using this as bullet time is much 
better, and the since some combos don't even use bellet time. You cannot shoot
or reload when shootdodging either, which can create a problem certain times.

Health: Unlike some games in this game you absorb lots of damage very quickly,
even on Detective Difficulty. Your health is displayed at the bottom left 
area of your screen. The indicator is a backside view of Max's entire body. 
When you are at full health it is white. When you are damaged the bottom of 
his body will turn red. The more damage you take the higher the redness will
go until you die. In order to replenish health you need to use painkillers.
Painkillers are small bottels of medecine scattered around all the levels.
They replenesh about 1/4 of your life, but they take time to heal you. The
amount of painkillers you have is displayed near your health. You may have 
a maximum of 8.

The Graphic Novel: A unique feature to the Max Payne series is its Graphic 
Novel scenes that are in between chapters. These tell the story of Max Payne,
and I strongly recommend that you watch them. They contain actul photographs
that have been made into oil paintings. As you will see some of the people
in the game look very different from the grpahic novel version(Vinnie 
Gognitti). In the graphic novel scenes you will hear all the sounds and voices
you would hear if it was a movie. You also hear music, which usually fits
the situation accuratly.

\____________________________________________________________________________/

II.I PROLOGUE

After the graphic novel sequence you will start of in a Hospital Room. When
your in control look around and get the fell of this game down. The whole time
you will be hearing voices in your head. Once your ready head out of the door
ahead of you and into the hallway. To your right is another door thats on the
other side of the hallway. Go in it then continue through this room and go
next to the door. The game will go into cutscene mode and Max will start 
hearing the voice of Mona Sax, his lover. When the cutscene is over go through
the door.

Do down the hallway to your right then into the double doors. When you walk
in the game will go into cutscene mode and max will look around then find a
dead body. He walks over and takes the gun from the dead guy when all of the
sudden an "NYPD" swat member rolls into the room. When your back in control
shoot him and then take his pistol. Go through the room and watch the short 
cutscene. When its over go through the door next to the lockers. You are now
in a long hallway. Go down to the end and into the lobby. An elevator will
open. Go in and press the button. 

The game will go into cutscene mode once again. When you get down Bravura will
be waiting for you. Before he can finish yelling at you he is taken down in a
hail of gunfire. Max will close the door but the attacker shoots a gas tank. 
The gas tank rolls into the elevator and blows up. It blows a hole in the wall
and makes you fall down. When your back in control jump down into the other 
elevator and walk out. Go down the hallway to your left then into the room 
across the hall. When you walk in the game will go into cutscene mode.

The cutscene will show a women(Dectective WInterson) laying on a table. She
has a huge blood stain in the middle of her chest. Maxs talks to himself about
how he murdered her, and why he did it. This marks the end of the first
prologue. 

II.I ELEVATOR DOORS

When the graphic novel scene ends you will see a cutscene. It involves Max
driving up to a warehouse. When he gets out of the car you hear gunshots and
a women yelling and screaming. After he reports for backup you will start
out next to his car. The area you start in is a loading bay for the warhouse.
On the side of one of the buildings is a small fence with a door way. Go 
through it then go down along side the building. Turn right then continue
until you come up to the small staricase. Go up the staircase and through the
door. 

You are now in a huge room with several stacks and shelves filled with box's.
Make your way through them and the game will go into cutscene mode. The camera
will zoom in on a cubical. You hear the voice of a women and a man arguing. 
Max hides behind the corner then jumps out ready to shoot a telivision set.
Once your back in control continue down the hallway and you will come to 
several garages. Open the skinny one with the number pad. A cutscene starts 
when the garagw opens revealing a guy in a cleaning company jumpsuit. Max
jumps out from behind cover and questions the guy. He says hes with a cleaning
company and that theirs a gun shop up stairs. He tells you he will take you
there.

Once you are back in control you have 2 choices. You can shoot him now or 
wait until he ambushs you. Shoot him now to save you the trouble then continue
through the next room. Go through the maze of boxs and supplies and you will 
come to a garage. Open it then go through the next room until you come to
another garage. Open it up to reveal a small hallway leading into the next
room. Continue into the next room and kill all the enemy's in the room. Go 
through the maze of box's and stuff and you will come to another room with 
2 doors. Only one opens and it leads to a staircase. Go up the staircase and
kill the guard at the top. Take his ammo and continue into the next room.

Go through the room and into the hallway. Go into the next room directly ahead
of you. You are now in a room with boxs and some shelves. Near the show
cleaners yelling at a girl sitting in a chair. After talking a bit one will 
point a gun to her head. But then Max jumps in yells at the cleaner's to 
put freeze. One of them pulls out an Ingram and forces Max to find cover. The 
other guy shoots the girl in the head. Once the cutscene is over use bullet 
time and jump to the right. The cleaners will be standing there, just 
unleash a wave of lead on them. Go in and take there ammo then go exit then
exit the room.

Kill the cleaners in the doorway then go right through the door. Use
bullet time to kill all of these enemys and then take there ammo and the
on shotgun. Go through the door and down the balcony. Go into the door and
the game will switch to cutscene mode. You will see three guards trying to
open an elevator. When it does open out comes Mona Sax murdering all three
of them. Next Max walks in and she backs into the elevator and leaves. When
your back in control go ove to the elevator and press the button. Wait for
it to open then go in it and press the button. 

When you get out you will be in another room with stacks of boxs. Kill the
cleaners on the forklift and then keep going. At the other end of the room 
are three cleanerss. Use bullet time to kill all three of them. On the left
is a grey patch on the wall with a door. Go in it and the game will go into
cutscene mode. Its shows a van of cleaners escaping in a van. Max rush's
over but is pulled back from being hit by the now alive Dectective Winterson.
After angrily talking the cutscene ends and goes into graphic novel mode.

II.III A CRIMINAL MASTERMIND

Once the graphic novel scene is over you will see a cutscene. It shows Max
