BB got orders to kill the cops working on the Valkyr Case and lure both of them to Roscoe Street Station by saying both partners need to meet each other in Roscoe Street Station.
Meanwhile, the Punchinellos made plans to rob Roscoe Bank through the old abandoned station, it is said the men who participate the robbery are Lupino's men. It was no coincidence as BB planted Max and Alex here, hoping to kill the 2 cops or at least implicate Max for the crime.
Since it is happening during a night winter storm, it meant less people go outside and less people in Roscoe Street Station. The Punchinellos managed to kill the few undermanned transit police and took control of the station, they also access to the abandoned station and blew a hole near the Roscoe Bank vault to access it and to rob Aesir bonds. However, the police have noticed the robbery in Roscoe Bank and hurry to the crime scene.

The gate being locked and shotgun shells outside to personnel locker room, Max check inside the locker room to find blood stains and bullet holes and finally a body. With this, Max pull out his Beretta and prepare to face his expecting assailants. He went back to find 2 mobsters waiting to kill anybody who arrive at the station, he kill both of them and headed to the unlocked gate.
He soon kill 4 gangsters on his way and found the security room to be locked, he then headed downstairs which lead to an abandoned track and found more mobsters. After killing them, he headed to a gate only to be locked. The only access is through the barricade that is been there for ages. He search the area to find one surviving transit cop threaten by a mobster only to be killed by Max.

Dead Cop and Robbers
Max entered the abandoned train station and fought his way through to find more mobsters. He also eavesdrop on the mobsters on Lupino's status and alert on Max Payne. He soon felt the explosion in the train station which is revealed to be exploding the wall in Vault B in Roscoe Bank.

Max and Alex talked about robbery that just happened and Alex realized something from the robbery but he shot dead from an unknown shooter who revealed to be BB. Max couldn't do anything since he is behind the locked gate. He soon proceed to escape the station while killing the remaining mobsters on his way.
Max broke down when his best friend who kept his sanity is dead and escape the area before the police arrived the scene. He also realized that he is framed for Alex's death and thinks that Lupino is responsible for the frame up since he orchestrated the heist. However, this is proven false as Lupino is under Valkyr influence and an addict of the drug. Nevertheless, this led to the start of Max's rampage in New York.
