As you enter the level, search the first corpse you find to pick up your first Enzyme sample and pick up the audio log before proceeding through the door.
Follow the tunnel round and enter the Farmer’s Market. You’ll see a Houdini Splicer who will probably be killed by the rocket turret off to the right. Go and hack the turret and then head back past the Cheese Shop where you’ll find a security camera round to the right, near the ceiling.
You can use the oil slick to burn a Splicer and then take out the turret in the Meat shop before grabbing all the pick ups. Through the next door you’ll run into a Big Daddy and Little Sister. Let the Big Daddy kill the Splicer before taking him out. There are explosive cylinders you can use to make the fight go easier. Watch out for a security camera in the shop ahead and more Splicers as you search for pick ups, there are some hidden areas here too.
Go through the door and use the health station on your left then go down the stairs on the right where a group of Thug Splicers will attack you. You’ll find a tonic and some other pick ups and another two Splicers will spawn in as you explore this area. There are various pick ups and more Splicers to kill as you explore the rooms off this main courtyard and you should find some distilled water as well. Once you’ve cleared the area follow the arrow back up the stairs and take the door next to the Silverwing Apiary sign grabbing the water and audio log on the floor before you enter.
Run round the glass tunnel and take out the Splicer before entering the door on the left. You’ll see a Splicer being killed by bees. Kill the insects that come after you.
Use the Gatherer’s Garden on the left and grab the audio log off the desk. Be careful not to touch the bee hives in here or you’ll be attacked. Go through the door behind the desk and there are two smoke controls. When you turn them on the room fills with smoke and you can investigate the beehives to grab enzyme samples without the bees attacking you. Be careful though because the smoke machine will turn off eventually and you’ll need to retrigger it. Also each time you investigate a beehive a Splicer will enter and attack you. Once you have 7 Enzyme samples you can head back the way you came and follow the arrow to the Winery through the glass tunnel turning left at the oil slick.

When you’re ready, follow the arrow to some stairs and you’ll see another unit of distilled water balanced on the rafters above. Watch out for the electrified tripwire as you descend.

You can just run for it if you like, hack one of them to help you, or just destroy them with the electro plasmid and wrench or the shotgun. Once the bots are dealt with and the alarm stops you need to go back to the Research Laboratory. You might encounter a couple of Splicers along the way.
Head into the office where Professor Langford died and insert the Lazarus Vector into the control panel near the window. As you head back towards the exit to the labs, Ryan sends a wave of Splicers after you.
You need to hit the switch next to the desk at the entrance to buy yourself some time and temporarily seal the area. Check the tube where you dropped your weapons in the level earlier to re-arm yourself. The enemies will come in waves and inevitably break through the reinforced door. If you hacked the security in here earlier, that will help.
The Lazarus Vector will continue to update and you need to keep fighting off the Splicers until it is ready. When it is ready run back into the office and hit the switch on the control panel, the Lazarus Vector will be released.

He’s pretending to be frozen. Kill him and photograph the body before looting his corpse for a Frozen Field tonic.
Head back to the Atrium and place his photo in one of the empty frames. A Big Daddy and Little Sister will enter, as usual let the Big Daddy take out the Splicers before you attack him and save or destroy the Little Sister. Now return to the Frozen Corridor and melt the ice in the room where you killed Finnegan to reveal a door.
Watch out for loads of Spider Splicers on the ceiling as you enter. Try not to break the display glass or you’ll be attacked by sentry bots. Take the staircase up to Rapture Records and go inside then take the stairs down to the floor below. There will be an explosion as you approach the ticking body so don’t get too close.
