Runway guide - GoldenEye 007

Mission three in GoldenEye 007 is Runway. Here's how to complete it on Agent, Secret Agent, and 00 Agent.


The third mission in GoldenEye 007 is Runway and it’s one of the shortest in the game. There are only a couple of tasks you need to complete whether you’re playing on the easiest Agent setting, Secret Agent, or 00 Agent. Regardless of your difficulty level, we’ll guide you to the end so you can escape.

Find plane ignition key

The plane engine key is found in a building outside, to the left of the one you start in. It is on a desk, with two soldiers standing behind. With the key in your hand, leave the room and go to the opposite side of the building you started in to find a tank! Jump onto the top and interact with the hatch to drive it. Make sure to switch to the tank shells.

Destroy heavy gun emplacements

There are three heavy gun emplacements to destroy along the runway. The first is halfway along, on the left side. It has a direct line on the plane.

The last two heavy guns are mounted on the cliff walls at the end of the runway. You may need to drive the tank to the end to get a decent shot – unless you’re quite good at lobbing them.

The missile battery is on the building beside the plane. There’s a single soldier standing near it and an explosive barrel. Use the tank to blow it up with one shot.

Finally, jump out of the tank and interact with the plane to fly off. That’s really all there is to Runway. If you’ve managed to complete it within 5 minutes, you’ll unlock the DK Mode cheat, one of the many cheats and unlocks in GoldenEye 007.

With Runway finished, you’ll be whisked off to Surface. This is the first time you’ll be visiting this location, so learn the layout while you’re there. Check out the Shacknews GoldenEye 007 page for more mission guides.
