- Test Chamber 4: Pick up the turret behind the button and aim it at Wheatley. It will not shoot until released, setting it upright.
- Test Chamber 5: There are two monitors in this chamber. Both can be smashed by lifting a box in a funnel and throwing it, however the exit portals are in two different locations. The monitor first is on the wall in which the funnel is being projected on, around the center. This will require some experimentation to get. The second monitor is on the very right of the angled surface that you go through on your way to the exit.
