War Against Rats

Easter Eggs

In Part I, Chapter 2, “Live from the Crime Scene,” you can take the enemy’s grenade and throw it into a hole in the wall near the start of the chapter. This will make the text “I had declared a war against rats” appear in your list of objectives, and you will encounter rats wielding guns once you go through the tunnel and up the stairs. If you shoot one of the lamps in the area, the rats will fight each other.

Remedy radio message

Easter Eggs

Near the ramp that leads into the underground section of the parking garage, you can climb onto the roof and shoot off the door of a small shack. Inside, you’ll drop into a room with the Rockstar logo on the wall, and a radio that plays a message from Remedy.

Popular Culture References


Max Payne contains numerous references to other games and pop culture, including:

  • A sign that reads “All your base are…” in reference to the infamous quote/meme, “All your base are belong to us.”
  • A Dopefish poster
  • Computers with Duke Nukem 3D mousepads
  • An enemy in “Live from the Crime Scene” whose ringtone is the theme song from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly
  • A room you can find where a man has had a stake driven through him, with “Buff” written in blood nearby, most likely a reference to Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
  • The chapter title “An Offer You Can’t Refuse” as a reference to The Godfather

Secret Rooms


There are numerous secret rooms you can find throughout the game that let you get more weapons, painkillers, etc. For example, in the tutorial level, you can climb up to a certain window and break through it to enter a hidden room. Check windows, doors, and other suspicious-looking areas to find secret rooms.
