I have been trying to do a frozen lab escape lately (not the deep-freeze) and I’ve been having quite a bit of trouble with it. So, I wanted to just throw my general strategy out there and maybe someone can tell me what I could do differently.
First off, get blankets for warmth. They will still be freezing to death, but at least their movement won’t be hampered much.
The general path is to go to the lab finale as quickly as possible for the ID card and head up to the top floor.
On the way through, I keep a lookout for warm headgear (only found a fur hat once), and the required components for an acid bomb or two (for the turret). Wolf suits, wool poncho, and capes are also good.
Try to avoid combat as much as possible since time is short and there will be no healing here.
I have been able to get close to escaping the Ice lab, but close doesn’t count. Generally, what ends up killing my characters is freezing to death (head), turrets in the finale, and getting grabbed by the ghoulies. I think this is a sound strategy, but it has yet to pay off for me.
What do you folks think? What could I be doing better, and are there any obvious tricks I am missing?
