I have reached the second kind of turret,

And broken all 3 walls

But, I cant get into this vent!

There are chairs outside, but I cant get them in the door since there is a suppression field! What do I do?

Fool the turrent into shooting the thick glass pipe that is above you in the room where the vent is -it can be seen in the second pic you posted- (create a portal on the floor so that the turret can aim into the pipe)

After the glass is cracked, a cube will fall from it and you can use it to get into the vent. :)

I just stacked the chairs from the first picture up in front of the vent. It was sketchy, but it worked.

Suppression field? I was able to take a chair into there. It was the "wrong" way to do it, but it worked for me :p

Yep, I was stuck there for a bit too, but wound up stacking a few of the office computers on top of one another and jumped into the vent that way.

Ah! this first time I had help. The chair doesnt work since there is a forcefield that disintegrates anything not metal. I went back some 5 rooms and got some metal grates, but that didnt work. Thanks for the advice. I escaped the fire the first time without any help! I thought I could do anything. :(

Edit: Trying to destroy the glass tube with the turret doesnt work. How did you get the chair through the forcefield? I cant also get the Turret to destroy itself.

Edit2: It did work. I hit it from the side, but the bottom fell. I didnt notice that.

They are indeed.

Every single second of the game is awesome, really.

Some people say it's short, and it is, but who can complain when every single second is filled with awesomeness?

I don't know how long I spent trying to get that guy to shoot himself with a rocket. At first I didn't even realize he broke the glass on the otherside of the room.

The game is indeed short, but once you start working on the bonus challenges you can spend a lot of time on those trying to beat/meet the lowest time/number of portals/number of steps.

I'm doing pretty well with lowest number of portals, but the rest is going to take me a long time to figure out.

Same here :eek:. I made him hit himself so many times until I realized, "wait a minute... there's a glass window on the other side too... let's blow it up!" Then I spent forever at the same point that the OP was at. I wondered if I had to blow the tube up, but I wasn't completely sure. I usually do it by shooting a portal at the wall and then repositioning the portal up higher after he targets me.
