This page of the guide to Oddworld Soulstorm contains the second part of the walkthrough of mission 16 - Brewery. You will learn how to open the third gate next to the train, where to find the Mudokons and how to properly escort them, and also how to defeat Sligs in open combat.
Additional note: The green color in this walkthrough stands for secrets and unique locations/activities associated with the badges (challenges) in the game. Mission 16 badges have been described on a separate page of the guide.
Cut through the Tangy Tear X-Traktor
Abe can use the lower path marked in the picture after he reaches the working circle and opens the second gate, the latter of which is an obligatory mission objective. You have to walk pretty far to the right until you reach the passage leading to Tangy Tear X-Traktor.
Once you reach a new location, you have to follow a pre-planned path. You can look inside lockers and other containers along the way.
Roll through the holes you come across and get to a new location with enemies. It's good to start by luring the new Slogs and getting them to fall on the lower shelf. This will allow you to get rid of these monsters safely by using e.g. Brewnade cocktails or cans of Fizzy Pow.
Get to the upper left lever and use posession on the bottom Slig after you unlock the path. You can get rid of him right away, or open the right path and use his flamethrower to set the Slogs on fire. After securing the area, recruit 4 Mudokons and use the elevator to travel down.
Get to a new location where Mudokons are being held captive. Recruit 3 Mudokons, then press the button and release another 3 Mudokons. Right after you join all allies, quickly go to the top left shelf. Order the Mudokons to stay there.
Slogs and an elite Slig will appear on the lower level. Focus on the Slig. It's safest to use the Bouncy Binding Candy on it, although you can also get rid of him by e.g. throwing a Brewnade or two Fizzy Pow at him.
You don't have to attack the Slogs, because you can unlock the next passage with a trick. After you get rid of the Slig, jump to the lower level and sprint to the right. You need to perform a double jump to the top right shelf visible the picture above. Abe will be safe here.
Stay where you are, waiting for the Slogs to lose track of you and go back to sleep. Hold down the sneaking button, carefully go down and return to the hiding allies. Order them to follow Abe and get to the elevator, sneaking all throughout the process. Release the sneak key only after the elevator starts going down.
After going down with the elevator, find the Bird Portal, which allows you to save the Mudokons. Here, you can also find some lockers to search and a Vendo with Brew Bottles.
Keep going to where you will meet the Sligs and Slog monsters. Unfortunately, Abe cannot use possession because the enemies wear headgear which protects them from it. It's worth sneaking up to the Slig from the right room and get rid of him quietly.
Next to the Slig, you will find the first lever - pull it. Go through the top part of this location, and wait for the right moment to sneak up to the second lever. Pulling both levers unlocks access to the elevator shown in the picture.
Take the elevator to the next area with Guard Houses. You have to repeat the same pattern of actions. As a reminder, after recruiting 3 Mudokons, retreat to the left elevator and use possession on the first Slig. Get to the possessed Slig near Abe and defend the Mudokons from the attacks of other enemies coming out from the Guard Houses.
Once the fight is over, get rid of the possessed Slig and press the button to free the 3 tortured Mudokons. Go to the right with the whole group and activate the Bird Portal to save your allies. You can now use the path next to the portal.
You will arrive at another location with Mudokons and here, you have act the same as before. Recruit 3 working Mudokons and release 3 tortured Mudokons. Quickly hide with them on the top left shelf.
Wait for the Slogs to gather under the occupied shelf. Order the Mudokons to stay put. Run to the right and jump to the top shelf next to the elevator. Wait until the Slogs fall asleep, go down, return to the Mudokons quietly and after summoning them, reach the right elevator with the whole group.
In the new location you will find a vending machine with free cans of Fizzy Pop. There are also two Sligs here, and due to the lack of Chant Suppressors you can easily possess and eliminate them. Abe must go left on his own, and you must make sure that the mines in the narrow path are destroyed - we have marked them in the picture. It's best to throw Rock Candy at the mines.
In the area to the left, you will find 1 Mudokon to recruit and a vending machine with Brew Bottles. Call all the Mudokons and use the levers to unlock the path to the new elevator.
Once again, you need to go through the location with the Guard Houses. Since you have dealt with identical fights before, you should know that you need to stand in the left elevator, possess the first Slig and use him to get rid of the others. In total, you will recruit 6 Mudokons in this location - 3 working and 3 tortured.
Use the next elevator and reach the upper floor.
On the next floor, you will find some vending machines selling Fizzy Pop and Blastos, with which you can craft Fizzy Pow. You can choose how to deal with the Sligs from the higher shelf - you can e.g. throw Bouncy Candy at them. There's an empty bottles recycling machine on the left.
Keep climbing. You will end up at the Bird Portal. If you have escorted at least 3 Mudokons (which is almost certain), then by rescuing them, you will unlock a new charge of the Shrykull special power. Climb the shelves to the left of the portal to move on. The only available path will lead you to the exit from the Tangy Tear X-Traktor.
Open the third train gate
Go right. Near the closed gate you will find some loot boxes and a Vendo with free Brew Bottles. Use the mobile platform to move into the background.
Before you move on, you can check the lockers, return empty bottles at the recycling station and use the vending machines that offer free Fizzy Pop and Blastos. This will allow you to stock back up on Fizzy Pow for free.
This scene is another copy of the fight that you dealt with earlier in this mission. Once you cross the red barrier, the path behind you will close and the fights will begin. Just as before, it's good to use Brewnade to stop the Slogs, and possibly set them on fire, too. You can attack the Sligs with e.g. Candy or Fizzy Pow.
Watch out for the elite Slig from the middle platform that can drop down and fire Abe through a destructable grid. He is susceptible to possession.
There are some Sligs armed with launchers on the higher shelves. You can use possession in their case, too. You don't have to get rid of all Sligs from the metal balconies.
Abe must reach the Work Wheel and use it to unlock the third. Once everything is done, go back downstairs and use the moving platform to move back to the foreground.
