Easter Egg
In Act 3: Level 4 (the garage), there is an Easter Egg featuring members of Max Payne's production team and some surprises. After the opening animation ends, take out the four guys that the car has dropped off. Now, before entering the garageon the right, face the garage and look just to the right of the opening. There are 3 barrels (one, and then two on top of each other), and an A/C unit coming out of the wall. Jump from one to another to reach the roof of the garage. You will now be facing a little shack on the roof, with a door-shaped section painted slightly lighter than the rest -- shoot this with any weapon, and it will fall away, leading to a room with a small grating on the floor. Stand on the grate, and you will fall into a room with a dead hostage, a sniper rifle and ammo, and a radio that plays a conversation between members of the production team with a bit of humour at the end.

Easter Egg Number 2
In the rooftop chase sequence there's a room you can get to that has a poster of Soldier Of Fortune II and some other useful goodies.

Easter Egg Number 3
In Chapter 3 when you start on the roof of the multi-storey car park you can jump on the barrels and then onto the roof near the exit ramp. If you shoot the peculiar looking metal wall you'll see it collapse. Then go through the opening, drop through a nearby vent in the floor and you'll end up in a small room. You'll find a sniper rifle and some ammo and a radio. "Use" the radio for some laughs.

Easter Egg Number 4
When you walk in on the bank robbery, you can shoot the wailing siren to stop it. Do this and Max will thank you.

Easter Egg Number 5
When you find the piano on the manor level, if you "use" it Max will play the title theme. Shoot the lid support out to drop the lid and then try playing the piano again.

Easter Egg Number 6
When you find the drum kit in the Ragna Rock bar, "use" it to play some beats. You can also get the guitar on the floor to squeal and if you "use" the stage microphones Max will say: "Karaoke was never my thing".

Easter Egg Number 7
In Chapter 1 level 3 you can find the handiwork of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Once you have found Muerte's Room (313), turn right when you exit the room. At the end of the hallway turn left and you will see a bathroom on the left side and a wooden door that is partially broken on the right side. Using any weapon break through the wood. Go through the room until you get to the broken window. Go through the window onto the ledge and follow the blood on the ledge. You will come to another boarded up doorway which is partially broken. Again using any weapon break through. Inside the room you will find a body with a stake in it and "Buff" written on the floor.

Easter Egg Number 8
After you leave the inner circle and get to the main guy's office you pick up the tape. Two rooms after that there is his inner office. Shoot the painting off the wall and youll find a button. The couch raises up behind you which hides a staircase. Go down and youll find a big screen TV that will play a parody of a star trek episode. In the next room is a bed with chains on it and a closet full of bondage stuff.

Easter Egg Number 9
In the level where you are chasing Gognitti across rooftops after the train bail, work your way up to the point where Gognitti's pounding on a locked door. Go down the metal staircase once you regain control, and go behind (underneath) the stairs. At the back is a door. Open it and walk down. Inside you'll find some weapons, and a poster that says "Dopefish Lives!" For historical purposes: The Dopefish was an enemy in Commander Keen 4 (in the Well of Wishes level) and has been spotted in several games including Quake 1.

Part 1 Chapter 5: Secret
After the shootout in the laundry, get into the elevator and you will hear music playing. Look up and shoot the speaker. The music will stop and Max will say "Thank you."

Part 1 Chapter 6: Secrets
There are two secrets when you get to the basketball court. Look up in the basket. There is a Beretta stuck in the net. Then, go to the chain link fence next to the street. Wait briefly and an SUV will pass by. Shoot it, the car will screech to a halt, and a man with a shotgun will get out and shoot at you.

Secret tutorial room
Play the tutorial till you reach the end, where you can practice shooting enemies. Jump up on the big van located there, then over to the ventilation fan on the wall next to the van. From the fan, jump to the stairs and climb them to the top. Break through the window. You will find an Ingram in the room.
