    I hated this achievement.
    Course, until up to a little past getting the car and reaching the first radio station, I didn't use a skip point. Some my Gnome (who I aptly dubbed "Commander Awesome"), cam along while I tried to speed run and jump with him in hand from a Ancient Guardian.
    Same with the bridge. I didn't trust my aim, so I dropped him down below and collected him. At least Alyx can help with the rifle, so if you're aim isn't so crash hot, you can take him along there.

    Thanks a bunch for this video. The skip points after from where I started watching were a serious help.

    i just did this on the 360..or tried. I actually watched this video cuz i was seein if i had to carry chauncy through the mines. But i did leave him where you leave him or in that area and when i came back, no chauncy. So i dunno if one of the dipshits kicked him or something when they all huddle down there or if the 360 doesnt work with that skip point as you call it

    I have installed Orange Box for PC but I don't seem to be getting any achievements. How is this (getting achievements) supposed to work on PC? Do I need to do anything special with my Steam account?

    So we launch a rocket into space, and what does mankind include? a declawed headcrab and a garden gnome... Great.

    Kaisonic... my sanity remains (what little I had) intact thanks to you!

    Only thing I would add is... SAVE THE DAMNED GAME AT HIS KEYPOINTS!!!

    I got to one point and I had 1 point of health... pretty much got killed everytime it reloaded!

    I stuck the demonic... and yes the little bugger MUST be demonic to cause that much hassle... put him in the rocket... shut the door and... ACHIEVEMENT!

    For some reason I now feel robbed.

    Many thanks for relieving my stress... and making me laugh. smiley13.gif

    I wouldn't say that this is a hard achievement to get it just takes around 4 hours to get. Of course when I went to get it I got the damn little guy all the was to the rocket and forgot to close the door like MadmanStace. No Achievement. Anyway your video was awesome and it really helped me out. Thanks

    i really hated getting that achievement because of the fucking copter would keep on shooting the gnome away so i put the little fuck in the car and drove slowly and finally made it past the copter part.

    anyone else just start shooting that red-hatted bastard into a wall near the end? Or was that just me?

    Meh. Annoying gnome makes a good stress doll too!

    I had to do this achievement twice. The first time I did it, I got all the way to the end with the gnome, put him in the rocket, rocket launched, no achievement. I suddenly realized that I never shut the rocket door. I was so pissed off! Anyway I did it again and got the achievement, so I'm happy now. Also, the achievement unlocked for me as soon as I shut the small rocket door.

    So I did this achievement a while ago but here are a few tips from when I did it.
    1. All of kaisonic's skip points where he puts the gnome down and comes back later work just fine on the 360 he was playing on PC and it stays there don't worry. All the places he put them down I did while getting the achievement months ago, the gnome isn't a demonic one that moves around the yard, he's nice and stays put.
    2. For those of you that have no qualms about cheating you can make yourself invincible. press start then: LB, Up, RB, Up, LB, LB, Up, RB, RB, Up. nothing can hurt you.
    3. Evading the Helicopter: Pick it up and kick/punt/shoot it forward. DON'T let the hunter shoot you, in all likelyhood it will cause the gnome to spin uncontrollably in your hands killing you.
    3a. If you're invincible and you get shot while holding the gnome (just like you can throw/punt objects with the gravity gun), the gnome will kick/punt you and you will go flying through the stage. Which makes for some fun times looking at the world from way up in the sky.
    Just a side note, most of you will hate the gnome by the end of the game. That's natural for some extra fun go here:
    www.pentadact.com/index.php/2007-10-15-gnome-quest
    and here:
    treygnome.blogspot.com/
    for some pics of people having fun with the gnome.
    P.S. the achievement is to send him to space so don't freak out when the achievement doesn't unlock when you close the door. You still have to launch the rocket and get him to space then it will unlock.

    You could also just use a spawn command to have the gnome spawn next to the rocket, but what would that really be ACHIEVING?

    You know you could use the invincible cheat and still get the achievement....

    Kaisonic rules, partially because he does, and partially because he made a 20 minute long video. That's practically laryngical suicide.

    That bullshit better be worth at least 50 points. Good Job Kaisonic.

    I so did this the hard way. I took that little fuck EVERYWHERE and lost him several times.

    2 things:
    1. When driving with the gnome, you can stick him on the platform behind you in the car. If you hit turbo, and immediately hit the brakes, a glitch happens that makes it stuck. It still can be dislodged, but it's a hell of a lot easier.
    2. If you leave the gnome by the houses where you found the combine advisor, and the drive all the way through the first train track area to the load point in the tunnel, you can turn and drive back to get it without the chopper being there.
