Vegas in Ruin
You start this chapter in front of the casino in The Lady Killer. Walk towards the street. Directly in front of you is an opened van. Grab the Ripper out of the van (you’re going to need it, but remember: if you are attempting to get the Duke Nukem Forever Gunslinger Achievement, you need to hold on to your pistol).
While you are at the van, Duke will say “Power armor is for pussies,” and you will see Master Chief’s armor in the back of the van. This counts as the first helmet you need to find for the Duke Nukem Forever Bucket Head Achievement.
Continue to the left from where you resupplied. Navigate around the stopped cars and busses. Some soldiers will accompany you, and as you get further along your path, you will come up on some soldiers fighting some aliens with a machine gun turret. Use the turret as you see fit and kill all the aliens that attack you.
Note: This chapter has a ton of street fighting. The good thing about this is that there are often lots of cars and explosive barrels lying around that you can use to kill aliens. If you kill 10 aliens with environmental explosions, you will unlock the Duke Nukem Forever Dead Useful Achievement for 15 gamer points.
When you have killed all the aliens at this area, follow the road to the right. Some more aliens will show up that you will have to deal with. At the end of the road you are on, there is a structure on the right with an EDF supply crate that you can smash for some extra equipment.
After all the aliens are dead, your companions will be standing by a break in the rubble on the side of the road. If the break is not there when you get there, a pipe bomb will be used to make a path. Follow your comrades through the path, up the stairs, and across the walkway. An alien ship will come destroy the walkway that you are on. Kill any aliens around and jump down to the road below you.
Back on the road, several aliens will spawn nearby. These enemies are particularly well-armed, so use your cover and strafing wisely to best them. It’s also a good idea to shoot the explosive barrel the pig cop is carrying before he throws it at you.
With those aliens dead, continue down the road some more. A drop ship will release some berserking pig cops at you. Shoot any explosive barrels on the ground to take out some, and use your ripper or pipe bombs to kill the others. Then go to the end of the road.
The road is blocked, so your only option is to jump down into the crater by going between the bus and semi-trailer that are blocking your path. To your left after you jump down you will find some soldiers and a lot of equipment. Of particular interest is an RPG and an ammo crate. You will need these to fight the boss that is about to show up and kill your comrades. Shortly after your descent into the crater, a drop ship will drop off some aliens. Kill them, and then the boss comes.
Vegas in Ruin Boss
The boss comes and kills your comrades, leaving you facing him solo. Thanks to the geography of the crater and your RPG, this isn’t a very difficult task. Just keep strafing and hiding behind the pillar of rock in the middle of the crater, firing your RPG rounds at the boss whenever you get a chance. When you run out of RPG’s, sneak back to the ammo crate when the boss isn’t looking to re-supply.
When you have fully decreased the boss’s health, he will fall over and his health meter will flash red. Run over to the boss and follow the on-screen instructions to climb up his arm, rip off a horn, and stab it into his eye. While he is writing in pain, go up to his crotch and follow the on-screen instructions to humiliate him. This is your Vegas in Ruin ego cap reward: +3 ego points.
After you kill the boss, a sewer pipe cover will open, and a soldier will tell you to get to the Duke Dome. Just continue into the pipe to end the chapter.
