Return to Castle Wolfenstein is the long-awaited sequel to the game

that was widely recognized as the grand-daddy of all FPS (First Person

Shooter) games, Wolfenstein 3D. In the game, you play as agent B.J.

Blazkowicz and you get the chance to blow up everything from Nazis and

zombies to robot soldiers and babes in tight leather. In short. this

game is excellent.

This FAQ provides the reader with in-depth strategy and tactics on how

to take out the three main bosses in the game, namely Helga von Bulow,

the Uber Soldat and Heinrich I. Apart from these, I'd be glad to answer

any questions from readers regarding anything other than how to beat

the bosses in a new section that I will add in the future.

This is the very first time I've written a FAQ for a game and I hope

everyone who is reading this find it useful. I am not a pro in video

games and I am still a newbie to FPS. The guide is quite short but oh

well, at least some people have found it very useful. You can send me

any critics, tips, suggestions or whatever to

Now, on to the guide. Happy fragging!

| Mission 2 - Part 4 |


This one's pretty hard if you don't have enough ammunition early in the

game, so stock up on those before entering the level and with those

given to you just before the boss fight.

While you walk at the sides, the floor will break revealing zombies,

and there are MANY of them. Kill as many as you can before going to the

other side. When you get there, Helga will appear with more zombies.

Just circle-strafe around her with everything you've got. Watch out for

the flying skulls, if they hit you, you'll be temporarily blinded.

You have to be very careful not to waste your ammunition as this boss

comes pretty early in the game and you don't have any good weapons yet.

You just can't afford to run out of bullets when Helga is about to die.

Keep firing the MP40 towards Helga's head while watching out for the

flying skulls.

When your health becomes low, run back to where you started for more

health and ammo. Helga won't follow you past the broken wall. After

beating her, just proceed to the exit.

| Mission 5 - Part 3 |


Man, did I have a hard time figuring out how to beat this guy. There

are two ways of beating him. The first one is a tip from my friend and

the second is the one I used. With both ways, make sure you got full

health and preferably full armor before entering the fight.

FIRST WAY - Just after Deathshed's short speech, crouch immediately

while pressing backwards (S). Use the Mauser Rifle to shoot the boss's

head, his helmet will fall off. You should continue shooting until his

body armor are worn out too, then take out your Venom Gun and shoot

like hell killing him.

NOTE - This way was not confirmed to work as I have yet to succeed in

using this way. But one of the readers of this FAQ has verified that

this works too. A big shout out for Freddie! You can read what he said

at the Reader's Tip section.

OR you can use the one I used to beat him here

SECOND WAY - As soon as the cut scene with Deathshed is over, jump

downstairs as quickly as you can and head to the little room on your

right. Use it as your cover, the glass is bullet-proof and the Uber-

Soldat's Tesla and Panzerfaust firings cannot penetrate through it. You

have to get out of there to shoot him and go back inside the room as

quickly as you can. I recommend using the Panzerfaust first. This

should wear out his armor with about 3 shots. After that, use Venom to

stop the weakened so-called Super Soldier.

Take note though, DO NOT IGNORE the scientists who are shooting you

from upstairs, taking down whenever you can would make your job a whole

lot easier because although they only use the Luger, you'll get wasted

in no time, trust me.

Also, if you run low on health, dash for the health packs at the back

and back to the little room.

| Mission 7 - Part 3 |


Once again, make sure you stock up on your health, armor and ammunition

before facing this monster. You won't get armor before the fight, so

just remember not to get hit very much in the levels before this.

This battle is going to be hard if you don't have enough ammunition,

just circle-strafe around Heinrich with the Tesla gun, it will hit him

AND the zombies around him. Plus, you don't have to worry about where

you're aiming your gun. When you're shooting, always make sure that the

tesla you're shooting always hits Heinrich, and if you could, try to

get it to hit Heinrich and his minions. The more you hit at the same

time, the better. ALWAYS, keep your distance from Heinrich. He would

constantly swing his sword to the ground that would make rocks fly all

over and hit you. If you're close enough when he does that, you will

bounce towards him, and that means serious trouble. One swing from his

sword hits you, it will claim more than half of your health.

When your Tesla ammo runs out, quickly switch to the Panzerfaust and

hit Heinrich with all the rockets you have. After that, switch to your

Venom gun and blast off. When it gets too hot, switch to the

Flamethrower and then use a clip of the Paratrooper Rifle. Finally

switch back to the Venom gun; it should be cool enough for you to

finish off Heinrich. Hopefully, he'd die before you run out ammunition.

If he doesn't, take out the next best weapon you have and waste him.

Actually, he should be dead while you were using the Venom, but just in


Take note though that after your Tesla ammo runs out, you'd have to be

extra careful when shooting the zombies that are holding shields with

the Venom. This will be VERY dangerous if you don't aim carefully when

shooting them as the shields bounce back the bullets that you are

shooting. So, you have to aim at their heads or strafe around them and

aim at their bodies. Also watch out for the flying skulls, you'll be

temporarily blinded if they hit you.

However you beat him, be proud of yourself and enjoy the cut scene that

follows because you just beat one of the beat games ever made.

---> From Macewind

Helga can easily be beaten by running back down the trench you enter

the level from. Then simply run forward, lure her to follow you and

drop down the trench whilst firing. She'll turn back and walk into the

center again without firing. Keep doing this until she dies.

---> From Freddie

Your first suggestion for beating the UBER SOLDAT works. The first few

rounds were pretty frustrating until I stumbled in to

what you wrote. From where you are at the start of the duel, the super

soldier will step back after a few rounds thrown at you. Obviously your

health should as such to absorb a few hits.When the super soldier steps

back, infront of the door where he came out from, start shooting the

robot with the sniper rifle and aim for the head. The super soldier

will not fire anymore! Just keep on shooting and be mindful of the

scientists that will occassionally come out and shoot at you as well.

Pause to shoot at these as well then continue on shooting at the Super

Soldier. I managed to defeat the super soldier by just using the sniper


---> From Lightning

The method for ducking and sniping works but an important part was left

out, you must move to the left or right side along the wall. Once the

railing on the sides of the extended portion of the platform is between

you and Uber Soldat, it will try to walk backwards and continue trying

to be able to get into range to shoot you. As a result, it never shoots

at you. I ducked the whole time so I don't know what it would do if you

stood up.

---> From Rockn-Roll

I approached this as I do most bosses, keep moving and duck after

firing. You are right to keep an eye on the scientists cause they do

some damage with their Lugers. I also found that exploding the tanks

when the uber soldier was near them helped out a lot, they are worth

like about 5 Panzerfausts or something like that.

---> FiresDestiny

I was kinda lost fighting this guy (i didn't notice the little room

down below. So instead after Deathshed finished his spiel, I fired one

Panzerfaust into the super soldier and then ran to the right behind

that little lab that Deathshed is in. I jumped up on the rail with the

Venom out and started it spinning. As soon as the Super soldier came

around the corner, I just unloaded point blank into his head/upper

torso. Plus being behind that lab I didn't have to worry about the

scientists at all. After killing the Super Soldier, I just took them

down with the Mauser.

---> William Chau

Immediately after the cut scene with Deathshed is over, jump downstairs

as quickly as you can and head towards the little room on your right.

Use it as your cover, the glass is bullet-proof and the Uber-Soldat's

Tesla and Panzerfaust firings cannot penetrate through it. As you look

out the glass window, wait till Ulber moves pass your front towards the

left entrance of the room. At this juncture (timing is critical), dash

through the right entrance towards the health packs, jump up to the first

health pack on the bench and crouch. At this angle, your position will be

aligned directly against where Ulber is standing, with the wall of the

room in BETWEEN YOU BOTH! Ulber will be standing still, not knowing where

you are (maybe the wall is blocking his view) or undecided as to which

direction to take (left or right). Take out your muscle rifle and shoot

at his arm (you should be able to see only his arm, swinging up and down

at this angle). Similarly, the scientists upstairs will not be able to

detect you.

---> Shahar

I have a new way of killing the second boss, I think it's easier than

all the other ways. You need full health to do it. When the fight against

him starts, run directly to him while using the Venum, and stand as close

as you can to it. Apparently the Tesla gun isn't so dangerous when you're

too close. He will die fast, and you can kill the scientists with the

---> From Elise Cisneros

The way I defeated Helga von Bulow was to run around the pylons keeping

helga on the other side. When the skulls shoot out, run around the

pylon. The skulls dont go around and follow you. It took me SEVERAL

tries before I figured this one out.

---> From Tony

When you first see Heinrich, he is REALLY far away, and really tiny.

One trick that I used was firing my Panzerfaust as I ran to fight him.

That way, before I was even in his range I had already smacked him with

at least 2 rockets. Circle strafing is the key. After I ran out of

rockets (I hit him with 4 I think), I switched to the Flamethrower,

emptied that and used the Venom on him till it overheated, then I

switched to Tesla, and that killed him. It's important to save up your


---> Rockn-Roll

I took out the girl right away with the Tesla, a few of the others went

with her. Take note that if you step off the platform you will be

attacked by ghosts flying in from outside the map, so STAY ON THE

PLATFORM. I mostly ignored the other enemies and concentrated on

Heinrich because even if you kill one then Heinrich somehow calls one

up from hell, or at least from the ground in the center where he came


After using up the tesla and Panzerfaust on Heinrich I switched to the

Mauser and would run to the other end of the platform and snipe in on

Heinrich and get about 2 or three shots at his head. Then, I would

sprint (speed key) away from him before he started to run up to me. It

doesn't take but about 50 rounds of head shots and upper body shots from

the Mauser to take him out, then I finished off the shield and sword

warriors with my knife.

---> FiresDestiny

Basically just circle-strafe and avoid the skeletons. Kill the zombie

woman first. Then while you're Tesla-ing Heinrich to get in some extra

damage whenever he does the raise the spirits thing he does three raise

motions. Run up next to him and kick him. You should be able to get one

more kick in than he has raise motions before he's ready to go in. Also

pretty much anytime he swings his sword or stomps on the ground you have

a second or two to run up and give him another swift kick. Not only is

beating him in this way still fun, it's also quite amusing that you can

actually kick the big baddy of the game. Another fun thing that just

sort of randomly happened while i was fighting was when i kicked the

zombie woman, that must've been the last bit of health she had because

she exploded.

---> Lou

Not exactly a tip, but a funny thing that happened on the last level.

I'm in the tunnel and looking out at Heinrich I and his undead minions.

Of course, they spot me and make their way toward me. I waiteed where

they can't see me, but of course when they do round the corner, all hell

breaks loose. In sheer terror, I bolt out of the cave and run straight

for the extra ammo and health. After I power up, I notice that, well, I'm

still alive and nothing is coming after me. It takes me a while to

realize that the cave-in (that was triggered when I left the cave, and

which is supposed to prevent the unlucky player from hiding from Heinrich

et al.) has trapped EVERYONE inside the cave! Unfortunately, they are

impervious to anything I can throw at them, including grenades, which just

bounce back toward me. So finishing the level from here was quite

impossible. I was thinking, however, if there was a way to trap everyone

except Heinrich inside, maybe it would make killing him a whole lot

easier. But I'm sure that duplicating that first accident is much tougher

than it sounds.

*Author's Note: Anyone who succeeded in doing this, please tell me.

---> William Chau

When you first see Heinrich after exiting the door to the open field

entrance, he is REALLY far away, and really tiny. Don't enter the open

field. Instead, take out your Mauder rifle and kill the girl. The rest

of the pack, the undeads and Heinrich will be closing-in fast at this

time. Dash back through the door and wait. Once you're sure there aren't

any homing skulls , go back out through the door around the corner to

check Heinrich's position. Again, don't enter the open field. If he's

still far away, you'll have to LURE him towards the open field entrance.

Use the same technique, shoot at him and dash back through the door. Once

Heinrich is at the open field entrance, bolt out of the cave (sprint!)

PASS Heinrich into the open field. There will be a cave-in at the

entrance, and if the position is right, the rocks actually CRUSH HEINRICH


*Author's Note: I have tried to do this many times but failed. The flying

skulls come into the room and kill me even before Heinrich

is inside it. If there is anyone that can verify this,

please e-mail me.


Please send me any other ways of how to beat the bosses in this game; I

will add them to my later revisions of this guide.
