    After you and your partner climb through the window an enemy barges in and grabs your partner. You’re supposed to melee the enemy but I get killed every time. Anyone having similar issues? How do you get past this part on 360?

    I’m having the same problem. I keep doing what the prompts tell me, and then I just spaz out pressing every key and nothing works. I keep dying help please.

    When i play, i get the first E prompt in cyan:

    Moments later it is time to use a mouse button. In the (successful) youtube version, the mouse icon is (again) cyan:

    If it’s red that means it detected some other input during the quick time event period. Do you have other controllers attached — joysticks, gamepads, etc? Anything else that would send an input signal during that interval? FWIW I had no problem with this sequence, though I did mess it up the first time..
