No Man's Land is the second area of Amnesia: The Bunker. It is the second and last main area of the Prologue leading into Henri's descent into the bunker.

Description[]

"No Man's Land" is a barren, open area. It constitutes the empty, unninhabited area between the French and German forces fighting on the Western Front of World War I, in northern France and parts of Belgium and Germany.

Summer has been changed to winter by the British guns (4688659160)

"Battlefield on Messines Ridge, Belgium, 1917".[1] "Summer has been changed to winter by the British guns. Last week this wood was beautiful and green."[1]

The area is desolate, with dead charred trees and ruined soil. The location is dangerous with both sides of the conflict disputing over control of the land. Along a beaten dirt path, a colossal crater can be found, with a liquid, apparently water, rising from the middle of it into a pool.

History[]

It is revealed through several notes both written by Augustin Lambert, and by Henri himself, that Lambert was sent on a routine patrol of the No Man's Land after losing a bet with Henri on who would be the one to go. This bet, however, was rigged by Henri using sleight of hand. Upon realizing his mistake and being consumed by guilt of his friend's disappearance, he ventures out to save him. Lambert had fallen into a crater, only discovered by Henri via a flare he had put out in hope someone would find him. Henri follows the flare's trail, and upon finding him spools down a rope and lowers himself to Lambert's position, making him drink the water from the Crater in an attempt to save him from dehydration.

After using rope to lift Lambert and himself back up the crater, Henri carries Lambert as the latter's leg was injured in the fall. Henri heads back to allied lines, before German forces spot him and send out a flare in the air to shoot at Henri and his friend. The duo are eventually almost struck by a mortar shell, as the resulting shrapnel gives Henri amnesia, before he is taken back to the Bunker.

Lambert finds himself somehow able to get up and swap places with his friend by carrying Henri back to the bunker. He makes it all the way back to allied lines, safely delivering Henri to the infirmary.

"Do you see, Daniel? A whole other world – isn't it beautiful?"
The following section is written from an out-of-universe perspective.

Henri finds himself here after sending Lambert to his doom by rigging their bet. Simply walk forwards and following the light of a flare, Henri will locate his friend. Once found, Augustin is injured and weakened, and in an attempt to aid him, Henri scoops up some of the water from the crater into his flask and makes Lambert drink it.

Soon after, pulling him up and out of the crater via a rope, Henri takes Lambert and carries to safety, but not before being ambushed by the Germans who spotted the duo. Henri is not able to circumvent or escape from their forces and is hit by an explosion, knocking him out and severely wounding him. The properties of the water, however, empower Lambert, who is able to instead carry Henri himself back to the bunker.

Trivia[]

  • There is no way to avoid getting caught and defeated by the Germans, nor is there a way to leave.
