GoldenEye 007, the Nintendo 64 classic, is now playable for gamers on Xbox Game PassNintendo Switch Online or owners of Rare Replay. However, for those who can’t remember how to tackle the many objectives of the single-player missions, we’ve prepared a GoldenEye 007 Walkthrough Guide: Cradle! This article will cover everything you need to know to complete the eighteenth level, Cradle, on Agent, Secret Agent and 00 Agent difficulties.

Cradle is the final level of GoldenEye 007. At least, as far as the story is concerned. That means a boss fight! Trevelyan is finally in your line-of-fire, and it’s time to take him down!

Primary Objectives:

A: Destroy control console
B: Settle the score with Trevelyan

You’ll begin at the end of the antenna. You can’t catch Trevelyan at this point, however you can prepare for the battle by collecting the Body Armour behind the pillar.

Start running down the walkway, and around halfway a guard will appear at the other end. This is your cue to start shooting.

Grab the two ZMGs that the guard dropped, but be careful because there are two more coming from the right. Then, two more from the left.

A timer will appear. You now have to blow up a console before the timer runs out.

Take the left path, then take the next right walkway. This one leads to the center. There is also a guard here.

Run down the stairs to the space with the two small cubicles. There is another guard here and more are coming. Quickly open the left cubicle to find Trevelyan. Shoot him and eventually he’ll shout at you and run away.

Quickly back up, as there are two drone guns here. Shoot them from a distance and watch out for
guards sneaking up while you’re doing so.

Enter and go behind the big machine. There’s the control console. Blow it up (Objective A: Completed) and get ready to fight Trevelyan in earnest.

GoldenEye 007 Walkthrough Guide: Cradle – Trevelyan Boss Fight

There are lots of ways to beat Trevelyan, but a good piece of advice is to keep note of the Body Armour in the opposite cubicle. You should try to remain near it, and grab it as soon as your first Body Armour expires.

After a long chase, Trevelyan will yell “Finish the Job James, if you can!”

The music will increase in tempo and Trevelyan will make a run for the very bottom of the Cradle. Follow him, watching out for guards on the way down.

When you get to the very bottom, open the door and go in. Trevelyan is waiting for you, and he drops down into a hole.

Crouch to make it easier to avoid missing the platform below, and fall into the hole. Stay crouched when you land and start firing at Trevelyan. After a little while, Trevelyan will either fall off or die, in either case he will say: “For England, James?” (Objective B: Completed).

And there we have it! The end of this GoldenEye 007 Walkthrough Guide: Cradle, and the end of the game! Or is it?
