Crysis - Walkthrough and Guide

Updated on August 18, 2011

Crytek Crysis


Crysis is a science fiction computer game that was developed by Crytek and published by Electronic Arts. It is a first person shooter game that is based in a fictional future world. Crysis is based on a world in which an ancient alien spacecraft has been discovered within the Earth.

With the single person campaign, the player must assume the role of a United States Delta Force operator, Jake Dunn, who is also referred to as Nomad. Nomad is armed with futuristic weapons and equipment, such as the "Nano Muscle Suit."

In the game, you must fight both North Korean and extraterrestrial enemies in four different locations- a tropical island jungle, inside an Ice Sphere, the alien ship, and an American aircraft carrier.

Crysis will challenge your ability to adapt and survive...

Crysis Walkthrough

In 2121, a mysterious asteroid crashes on a tropical island. The North Korean government quickly rushes to the scene, occupies, and secures the site.

You are a member of the US Delta Force Squad that is sent to find out why such an extinction level event has not sent the world into another ice age.

But, soon, a giant beam erupts from the asteroid and freezes everything within its boundary.

A simple recon mission, has now turned into a war of the survival of mankind.

At the front line, there is an immense alien invasion...

In order to succeed, you must plan your attack carefully, as the intelligent and cunning AI can adapt to the changing environmental conditions. You must use more than average techniques in order to survive.

When, you are in the Hot Zone, you must quickly asses the situation; a strategic approach is a must.

The run and gun option is always an idea, but you must be really good in order to win.

You will be equipped with a highly specialized rifle that allows you to send projectile ammo into the skin of the enemy and use a time release in order to down them all from behind cover. You can tailor your attacks.

And, because you are a part of the elite Delta Force, you will be provided with the Nano Combat Suit, that is upgraded throughout the game with various tools and weapons. The suit allows you to survive in the hostel environment.

You, the player, control your energy level, and with speed, armor, energy, and strength, you will always be ready for battle.

If you are backed into a corner, you can either dial up the speed for a rapid exit or dial up the armor and stay to fight.

There are several different routes that will allow you to reach your goal, but the obvious and direct ones, may not always be the best. The game allows you to dictate your own path in the realistic environment.

You must be aware of your surroundings at all times.

The game pushes the environment activity to new levels with organic matter and man made objects.

Vehicles are interactive and destructible. Once you reach a location, shoot the tire and the panel will blow. Each action has a different effect.

Always use cover in a tactful manner to destroy your enemies or their cover.

The outcome of this invasion is up to you...

Crysis Patch

Patch #1

For the most part, the new patch won't introdruce any major changes nor will it have a large change log. It is intended to be a small patch to fix the more frustrating and obvious issues you may be having.

Today we have got a little update on our upcoming patch #1 for Crysis for you. Even though there is no final change log available at the moment since the patch is still work in progress we would like to give you a rough overview what kind of issues are being addressed.

As of November, there has not been a set release date for hte patch, as the company is still working on it, but they are confident that it will be out as soon as it has been verified and checked for stability.

As for the content of the patch, it is going to address following categories:

  • Overall Performance
  • Adjustments to LAW and Grenade balance in multiplayer

You must keep in mind that this is not a major patch to the Crysis game, but more like an update on the performance and a few Multiplayer tweaks requested by the Crysis community.

Pre-Order/Special Edition Exclusive Vehicle (Amphibious APC) - Online Concerns

A few of the people who got access to the Amphibious APC have concerns asto why they are not able to purchase the vehicle in one of the factories. This is due to the fact that the dedicated server needs to be logged into Gamespy in order to allow people who purchased the pre-order/SE version of Crysis to buy the vehicle in the game.

Most of the server hosting companies have been informed about this issue, and Crytek has recommended that those who are setting up a dedicated server to to read the Crysis Server Documentation.

Weapon Sound loop - Workaround

There is a temporary workaround for the sound looping bug that occurs in some multiplayer sessions of Crysis. If you experience the bug, you can follow the below instructions to work around the situation.

  1. Open the console and type in "con_restricted 0" (without "").
  2. Type in "s_soundenable 0" (without "") to disable the sound completely.
  3. Type in "s_soundenable 1" (without "") to enable the sound again.

So whenever this bug occurs, you can just follow the steps above, and it should be gone.

Crytek is, also, trying to solve that problem once they are able to reproduce it in-house.
