Here’s a walkthrough and guide of The Tree (chapter 2) in It Takes Two.
The Tree (chapter 2) walkthrough and guide
The first section of this chapter is named Fresh Air.
You will start at the tree area. Here, you just need to learn how to use the ropes to swing from one branch to another.
You may also find paper planes all around the tree. Not sure what they’re for, perhaps only for fun.
Continue swinging from one branch to the other.
You will then reach a dead end. Use the red walls to jump and bounce to the top.
In the next part, use the swing to reach the next area.
Keep going until you reach the treehouse. Open it by using the pulley.
You will then activate a cutscene with squirrels.
After getting captured by the squirrels, you’ll be given guns. Cody will hold the sap gun while May holds the gun to explode the nectars. This part requires more teamwork.
Destroy the wooden sticks using the two different launchers / guns.
You will now reach a target practice area which is probably optional.
In the next area, May has to shoot the target to open the gate.
You will now reach a wooden bridge that’s elevated. Cody has to shoot sap at it to weigh the bridge down.
Climb the bridge to the other side. On the other side, you need to use the bridge again, but this time to get to the upper platform.
May has to explode the sap first. Use the bridge up.
May has to shoot the target.
In the next area, use the sap on the moss and burn it with May’s weapon. The bridge will come down.
You will then reach a steel container. Use sap to weigh it down and get onto the container. Destroy the sap and you’ll get to the top.
Once you’re on the wood, place more sap to bring the container down. Climb the top of the container, destroy the sap again, and you’ll be able to reach the next path.
You will now reach an area with a red box.
Cody needs to shoot the yellow thing on the right to allow him to go up.
Next, Cody has to jump onto the wall of the red box.
May then shoots the target to move the red box and Cody will be able to jump to the other side.
Cody then needs to jump onto the paint can until it reaches the bear trap.
It will then open the gate beside it.
In the next part, you’ll see some yellow platforms and also a button nearby. Miss Q will ask you not to press the button, but you can and it’s purely for fun. It’s not related to the main story.
Back to the actual story. May has to stand on the platform beside the wooden wall. Cody then shoots sap onto the barrel covered by yellow planks.
This will push up the platform that May is on.
May needs to jump to the left side yellow cross.
To get towards the left, Cody has to shoot sap onto the yellow platform to move it counter-clockwise. This allows May to jump to the next platform on the left.
Repeat this process.
May will then reach a target. Don’t shoot it first.
Let Cody stand on the platform right below the target. Shoot the target and Cody will go up.
You will now see a blackboard with a unique looking tank.
To break the lid, Cody has to spray sap all around the red-color locks. Connect the sap in a way that you can explode it all at the same time.
May then has to shoot the sap and all of the red locks have to open at the same time (through the explosion).
You will now reach the next area. Here, Cody has to shoot sap at the first wooden plank at the top.
This will make the platform come towards you. Shoot the sap to remove it.
Cody now has to shoot the sap at the other two planks nearer the other side to allow the transport to move forward.
You will now come across a few wasps. Destroy them with the sap and fire combination as usual.
You will now reach a part with two containers. Shoot a load of sap into both of these containers.
Then, Cody has to stand above the first container. May has to shoot the sap and it’ll allow Cody to fly up to the next container.
Shoot the next container to do the same thing.
Once Cody is at the top, he’ll see some moss but May can’t reach it. To destroy the moss, Cody has to spray sap at the moss and connect the sap all the way to the end of the wooden planks.
May can then shoot the sap at the edge of the planks (image below) and it will explode all the way to the moss. This will lower the bridge.
Once you’ve crossed the bridge, May has to shoot the target behind the gate.
Tug of War minigame
You will then come across a Tug of War minigame which is for fun.
Back to Captured
After the minigame, use the railings to go forward.
This part requires you to switch railings to avoid obstacles.
You will finally reach a big gate made up of a cog. To spin the cog, shoot sap at one of the wooden planks.
Some wasps will spawn. Kill them all.
Continue to put sap onto the wooden plank to move the cog. A shield wasp will then appear.
Boss fight – Defeat the Shield Wasp
You will get the first boss fight here. You just need to defeat the shield wasp.
This wasp uses a shield in front of him, which means you need to spray sap behind the wasp where he’s vulnerable.
His attacks can be easily dodged and he targets one player at a time. To beat the boss, you just need to spray sap at the back and May has to explode the sap.
Continue the process until he’s down.
The next section is titled Deeply Rooted.
You will come across plenty of larva. Destroy them the same way (combination of sap and gunshot).
However, they’ll keep spawning until you destroy the nests. There are a few nests to be destroyed.
In the next part, use your rope to swing to the other side.
You will now see some elevated bottles with wasps inside them. To bring down the first bottle, use the sap and gunshot combo.
Some wasps will spawn. Kill them all.
Boss fight – Defeat the Mortar Wasp
After bringing down the second bottle, a Mortar Wasp boss will appear.
He shoots green balls which can be avoided by dodging. Like before, use the sap and gunshot combo to defeat this boss.
Back to Deeply Rooted
After the boss fight, continue bringing down the third bottle and climb on it.
Use sap to lower the platform.
You will reach a photo-taking area. You can play around with the camera and the two different backdrops.
You can also use the right-side button to do a timed photo.
Once you’re done, continue ahead and you’ll meet a swarm of wasps.
Kill them using the explosion combo as always.
Once you’re done, you will be sliding down. Cody has to spray sap while May shoots the sap to kill the swarms blocking the way.
You will then reach an area where you have to use a barrel lid as a boat. Cody will control the boat with his sap gun.
May has to shoot the glowing larva from far to avoid the boat taking damage.
You will come across a wooden gate. Shoot the target at the right side to lift the gate.
Continue forward and you’ll meet some tornadoes formed by swarms.
Avoid getting sucked in.
Finally, you’ll reach a dead end (for the boat) and you’ll see a lamp. Use the sap combo to power up the lamp.
You will then be able to see the next path.
Later, you’ll see some jellyfish. Jump on the jellyfish to reach the next part.
Light up the next lamp and you’ll see a new area with very cool graffiti.
Keep going until you see a blue energy. Jump into the blue energy thingy and you’ll be able to jump to the next blue energy.
Just follow the path.
Minigame: Plunger Dunger
In the next area, you’ll see a Plunger Dunger mini game. Each player has to shoot targets and you win points if the targets reach the opponent’s end.
The player with the most points after the time is up wins.
Once you’re done with the minigame, continue forward. You’ll see a blue energy ball again. Use it and you’ll reach a circular piece of wood.
Top-down wood area
In this part, you have to avoid the wasps with saws. At least one player has to be alive at all times.
After you’re done with this part, you will have to defeat more wasps.
Boss fight: Defeat the Giant Beetle
You will then encounter a new boss fight, i.e. to defeat a Giant Beetle.
The strategy to win is simple. You need to fill up those holes surrounding the arena with sap, until you see the sap popping out.
Then, lure the giant beetle to go over the sap-filled hole. Shoot the sap when the beetle is directly above the sap.
This will reduce the HP of the beetle. Rinse and repeat until you win.
After the battle, Cody and May will escape the arena with the Giant Beetle.
Cody has to do the movements while May has to do the shooting.
Boss Fight: Defeat the Wasp Queen
Finally, you’ll face the Wasp Queen.
To lower the health, just spray sap all over the queen and shoot the sap. There will be swarms around to protect the queen. Destroy the swarms as well if they’re blocking you from the queen.
You can also use the railing to go behind the queen to plant saps. The aim is to get rid of the armor protecting the creature inside the fake queen wasp.
After the health drops to half, the battle gets tougher. You may be subjected to a top-down swarm avoiding part.
After the top-down section, continue to damage the queen with the sap combo. You have to get rid of the armor on the queen.
To destroy the back, you need to take turns. Cody has to go around the queen planting saps first while May distracts the queen from the front. Once Cody is done, May has to go around the back to shoot the sap.
At the last stage, the fight takes place on the rail only. While sliding on the rail, you need to jump to avoid the swarms as well.
The wasp queen has to be damaged at the chain holding the neck. Plant sap at the chain and destroy the sap.
Continue the process until the boss is down.
After the boss fight, you have to escape from the squirrels this time. Cody has to control the plane while May controls the shooting.
At one point of the stage, the chief squirrel will jump on the plane.
May will then need to defeat the chief in an arcade fighting style match, similar to Street Fighters / King of Fighters / etc.
This chapter ends after escaping from the tree and into the house.
