Max has found Vinnie Gognitti, and decided to help him out to complicate Vlad's plans.
You'll finally meet Vinnie. Vladimir has set him up, and managed to get him into a huge Captain Baseball Bat Boy costume. If he tries to take it off, he will explode. Max decides to help Vinnie, as Vinnie promises to lead him to Vladimir. Meanwhile, the building is being surrounded by commandos attempting to assasinate Vinnie, and Vinnie's mafia members seem to have been reduced considerably.
An important thing to remember while playing this level is to keep Vinnie's life above your own. He cannot defend himself, and if he dies, the bomb goes off, and then you die.
First, shoot the commandos that are trying to kill you from outside of the windows behind you. Then, open all the lockers in the room to snag some Painkillers. Also, before doing anything else, head into the room with the big Kalashnikov poster. Shoot the lock at one of the cupboards to find a Striker and lots of ammo. There's also weapons inside the normal cupboard in this room, and some M4 Carbines in the nearby storeroom. Head back to the room where you started, equip the M4 Carbine and jump out of the window. Use Bullet Time to easily take out all the commandos that drop down from the huge wall, until they stop appearing. Head back into the room where Vinnie is waiting.
Follow Vinnie into a new room, and kill the commandos that jump in from the window. Vinnie will realize that he can't get through the exit door, as the bomb will blow up. Snag the painkillers from the nearby locker, and then kill the commandos that once again have jumped in from the window. Some commandos will also appear behind you. Follow Vinnie into a new room. Let him take the elevator, pick up the painkillers from a medicinal cupboard, and wait for commandos to appear from both left and right sides. Kill them, and then go up using the stairs. Meet Vinnie here, and follow him into his stove. Lots of commandos will enter the room from behind you. Kill them all. You'll see that Vinnie is a collector that has about everything regarding Captain Baseballbat Boy. Well, continue into the living room and watch Captain Baseballbat Boy episode 169. There's some painkillers in a cupboard in the living room, and some ammo stashed in convienient place along the apartment. Walk into Vinnie's bedroom and listen to the answering machine. One message is from the godfather. He tells Vinnie that he should never have started the war with the Russians, and refuses to send him more men. The second message was left by a girl that Vinnie beat up when she tried to 'spank' him. The last message is from Mona, warning Vinnie and telling him that Vladimir is trying to get him, probably with a bomb.
Walk out to the balcony, and kill all the commandos below you. you may have to wait for the commando to force open the hole in the wall. Jump down, and a car will arrive. Kill all the commandos inside it and follow Vinnie. Another car will arrive, and commandos will be appearing on top of the walls as well. Use the MP5 or Dual Ingrams to take them all down. Shoot the ones at top of the walls before taking out the others. Now Vinnie will open a garage. Run up the stairs, and press the button up here to take Vinnie along with you. Go through the hole in the wall. Let Vinnie run first, and wait by the stairs for lots of commandos to appear. Just stand around, and activate Bullet Time when they arrive. Kill them all, and then follow Vinnie to his car.
Payne and Vinnie search for Mona in the van. Vinnie yells at Payne, telling him that Mona is worse than the Russian is, but Max doesn't listen. They drive to the theme park where Mona lives. Vladimir is waiting for them, with a detonator in his hand, holding you hostage with a group of accompanying commandos. Vladimir leaves you in a inferno of fire to die, but Mona comes to the rescue.
