GoldenEye Facility walkthrough, from door decoder to double agent

You’ll arrive in the Facility in GoldenEye 007 after jumping from the dam after the first level.

The facility is a major hurdle that is filled with guards and soldiers that are holding you back. There are a variety of objectives you must complete, with one of them being the first randomized objective – finding the double agent – that you’ll encounter for those on Secret Agent difficulty and above.

Read on to figure out how to find Dr. Doak, rendezvous with 006, and destroy the gas tanks with ease.

Tips before starting Facility in GoldenEye 007

  • Throughout, we recommend shooting your weapon at the floor to make the enemies come to you. Take them out one by one to slowly but surely progress through the facility.
  • After interacting with the panels, there is a timer for how long the associated door can be opened. Move quickly so you don’t have to go back and forth.
  • The Double Agent, Dr. Doak, can spawn in one of six locations. You must find him to receive the door decoder to progress in the level on Secret Agent difficulty and above. He is dressed up as a scientist with an object in his hand, so you’ll have to search the rooms in the walkthrough for a scientist who is not afraid of you.
  • Wait for your conversation with 006 is done to complete the rendezvous objective.
  • At the end, make sure to place the remote mines in a position that will destroy two tanks at once. They are lined up in two rows of five tanks, so if you place the mines in between two tanks it should take out two at once.
  • After placing the remote mines, position yourself at either the double doors or the conveyor belt exit for a quick escape. Blow up the tanks with the fire button when you’re in position and leave immediately.

Facility objectives

Depending on the difficulty, you can have up to five primary objectives to complete at the facility. The five objectives are as follows:

  • Obj. A — Gain entry to laboratory area (Agent difficulty and above)
  • Obj. B — Contact double agent (Secret Agent difficulty and above)
  • Obj. C — Rendezvous with 006 (Agent difficulty and above)
  • Obj. D — Destroy all tanks in the bottling room (Agent difficulty and above)
  • Obj. E — Minimize scientist casualties (Agent difficulty and above)

Locating the Double Agent

Before we begin, know that Double Agent, Dr. Doak, can spawn in one of six locations. You must find him to receive the door decoder to progress in the level on Secret Agent difficulty and above. He is dressed up as a scientist with an object in his hand, so you’ll have to search the rooms in the walkthrough for a scientist who is not afraid of you.

  3. Check the rooms on the left and right of the hallway to see if Dr. Doak, the double agent is inside.
  4. If he is inside one of these opening rooms, he will give you the door decoder, which you’ll need to open the bottling room door later on.

You can evade the detection of the guards by peaking to see who is on top of each platform, and not fully going up the stairs.
  9. Return back to the central room with the two panels, and interact with the left panel.
  10. Take a right out of the room and proceed down the hallway through the door — completing Objective A. There will be multiple enemies in this room as well, so be prepared to eliminate multiple guards here.

  12. Check the three rooms here for last opportunities to meet Dr. Doak, the Double Agent — completing Objective B. Continue down the hallway to a locked door.
