Decadence introduces a new enemy type in the form of the Producer, but this new enemy is not encountered regularly until Neighbors. This chapter requires careful planning/quick reactions in order to succeed.

  • First section: Both the west-most rooms can be cleared by rushing with a melee weapon when both enemies are close together and not too far from the entry point. The enemy in the hallway can be killed by either throwing a weapon the executing or by approaching him through the top doorway. The eastern room can be cleared through a combination of luring and door camping/rushing.
  • Second section: The mobster near the pool table can be melee'd if one is quick but be wary of the gun wielding mobster who has line of sight to him. The bottom right room can be cleared through rushing, same with the bathroom. Shoot the mobster in the middle doorway and then quickly shoot the mobster that comes running through the top door. Spray at the two enemies in the top left room and aim lock onto the enemies in the dining room and take quick pot shots. Pick up a shotgun with at least two shots left before taking the stairs.
  • Third section (boss): Here you will fight with the Producer. The producer will attempt to melee you and moves very quickly. He also knows where the player is at all times regardless of line of sight. To defeat him, shoot him with a shotgun. He will get knocked down by the blast. Once he is knocked down for the second time, quickly run over to him to perform an execution on him.

Once the producer is dead, The Girl will ask you to 'finish what you came here for'. Jacket proceeds to pick her up and take her to his car. She can be found in later chapter introductions in Jacket's apartment.

Dialogue Edit

[After clearing out the second floor and returning to the first, The Producer is standing up from his seat with his coat removed, revealing a bulletproof vest]

The Producer: Gotta do everything by myself, huh...

[After defeating the Producer he lies helpless on the ground]

The Producer: Oh God... *COUGH* Please, don't!

[Jacket gouges out The Producer's eyes]

[If Jacket walks to The Girl]

The Girl: Yeah... just get it over with... I knew it would end like this *COUGH*

[If Jacket tries to leave without The Girl]

The Girl: Hey... Asshole... You can't just... *COUGH* leave me here... I've got no where to go... Why don't you finish what you've started?

[Jacket carries the girl to his car]

Outro Edit

In Beard's bar:

Hi there, welcome! ... You don't look well, sir. Are you alright? Are you sure it is OK for you to be drinking? Alright... then I will get you something special. Do you like sweet or sour? Maybe you want it bitter? I think I know what you want... one moment.
