Just watch your head when that thing gets unstable... we need that brain of yours in one piece.
— Sly telling Bentley to watch out for falling bridge debris

"Bomb the Bridge" was a job for Bentley in A Starry Eyed Encounter of Sly 2: Band of Thieves. It is the first of three sub-missions in "Operation: Hippo Drop."


Bentley needs to bomb the bridge separating Rajan's guest house from the rest of the palace. This will block reinforcements from the guest house, and distract the guards standing watch over the Clockwerk wings in the ballroom.

Upon reaching the mission marker, Sly tells Bentley that he and Murray are moving into position and asks if Bentley still thinks he can demolish the large bridge. Bentley states it doesn't take an engineer to figure out how to blow up a bridge and he will start by using his bombs to destroy the lower cleats. Once the structure destabilizes, the retainer rings on the upper cleats should pop right off, which will enable Bentley to destroy them and cause the bridge to crash down. Sly warns Bentley to watch his head when the bridge becomes unstable as the gang need Bentley's brain in one piece.

On the lower level, Bentley will need to destroy nine cleats. After two cleats are destroyed, debris will start falling down and Bentley must avoid them so he won't take damage. Once all nine cleats are destroyed, Bentley will jump to the main structure and the lower level will fall apart. Bentley must now destroy eight cleats in order to destroy the main structure, but he must take care to avoid the falling stones. After the eight cleats are destroyed, the bridge will crumble apart. Bentley will notify Sly that the bridge is down and that he will warm up the van and get the RC chopper started as part of the final task of the heist.


  • Bentley would have been stuck on that side of the bridge since it was destroyed.
  • When bombing the upper cleats, the ones on the outer edge of the platform only takes one bomb, while the rest take two bombs.
  • When the bridge falls, you can see birds flying away in the background.
