Max Payne Easter Egg - All the Eggs in Max Payne

Easter Eggs

Part I: The American Dream

Chapter Two: Live from the Crime Scene
Right at the beginning, there is a hole in the bricks in the wall. Cheat yourself a grenade and throw it in. Your mission objectives now say "I had declared a war against rats". A bit later, after walking through some water and taking out a few enemies on a train platform, walk up the wide stairs. In the room at the top are a bunch of rats... with Desert Eagles! Now shoot at one of the ceiling lamps that's off. Hit the base of the lamp and it will fall. The rats will now battle each other. If "your" side wins, the remaining rats will take up defensive positions around you. If your side loses, the remaining rats will come after you.

Chapter Two: Live from the Crime Scene
You can shoot the wailing siren in the central vault area and Max will thank you.

Chapter Three: Playing it Bogart
If you walk past Rico Muerte's room to the end of the hall, you can shoot away a boarded-up door. From this room you can walk across the ledge and shoot away a boarded up window to find a dead body with a stake in it lying next to the word "Buff" in blood (as in "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), as well as some other goodies.

Chapter Six: Fear That Gives Men Wings
As you ride the elevator up from Luigi's Laundry, shooting the speaker playing sappy elevator music will bring another "Thank you" from Max. Shortly thereafter, as you leave out the window from the room sporting the thug in the bathroom and the TV news report, walk to the left and there will be a window you can jump through to a room with two Soldier of Fortune 2 posters and a stash of shotguns. If you didn't destroy the elevator speaker earlier, you should be able to hear the music from within this room.

Chapter Seven: Police Brutality
When Gognitti reaches the locked door, there is a satellite dish behind you on the ledge. If you jump from this corner to the ledge across the alley, you can drop down into the fenced area and open a door to a room with a nice assortment of ammo and a poster proclaiming "Dopefish Lives!" Dopefish is quite possibly the most prolific character in Easter Egg history.

Chapter Seven: Police Brutality
At the basketball court, there is a Beretta stuck in the net. Also, if you wait by the fence, an SUV wil drive by. If you shoot it, it will crash and the driver will get out to shoot at you.

Chapter Eight: Ragna Rock
When you reach the inner stage area, you can "use" the drum kit and microphone and step on the guitar for some interesting effects and dialogue.

Part II: A Cold Day In Hell

Chapter Five: Angel of Death,br> When you reach the grand piano, you can "use" it and Max will play the title theme. You can get a different effect by shooting out the lid support and trying again.

Part IV: A Bit Closer To Heaven

Chapter Four: Backstabbing Bastard
At the entrance ramp to the car park (from where you start), there is a stack of barrels and an air conditioning unit that you can jump on to reach the roof of the garage. Shoot the off-color panel of the shed there and it will fall away. Inside, you can jump on a grate to fall into a room with the grafitti "R Thanks", a radio you can "use" to hear audio from the production team, and a sniper rifle with ammo.

Chapter Five: In the Land of the Blind
In the small room after Woten's office (where you find the Aesir building plans), there is a small picture that you can shoot off the wall, revealing a button. Pressing it will raise the couch on the other side of the room, revealing a staircase down to a "private area". In it there is a big screen TV you can use to play a 3DRealms-themed parody of Star Trek. In the adjoining room there is a bed with chains next to a closet full of bondage gear.

Chapter Four: Backstabbing Bastard If you wait a few seconds after the people on the radio finish their thank you's then you will hear them doing a short parity of Saturday Night Live's Celebrity Jeopardy.

Theres also another secret room on the tutorial map. Jump on the van and then onto the air conditioner up on to the fire escape. Climb all the way up and jump through the window to find the room with a mac10 and so ammo for the mac10. Another "egg" I found was the mouse pads in the "cold Steel" levels. The computer mouse pads have a small picture of the "Duke Nukem 3d" game picture, 3dRealms' most famous game.

Might I add that you forgot ANOTHER egg. In the last chapter in the building of the crazy lady. If you are walking slowly through the level you will sometimes hear guards talking. There are two guards, if you don't shootthem, will be talking about cool action movies. One of them will make commet to the really cool action movies and that they slow down at the cool parts. He wishes he cold do that and he would call it "bullet time".

Also, in the "crazy ladies" building, go to the mainframe room for the first time. If you wait in the elevator, you'll hear a bodygaurd talking about how this is just his job!

with the egg when you have to throw a grenade through the hole in the wall, is there any way of acquiring a grenade other than cheating or is it possible to do this egg on ps2?
