Sticky Situation (mission)
Sticky Situation, or A-5, is the fifth mission of Gloomy Manor in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon. This mission is mainly about cleaning up a random number of spiderwebs and is a foreshadowing to the boss of the Gloomy Manor.
The web locations change every time Luigi goes into this mission, but there are several notable, static locations. In the Common Hall, Luigi finds a web ball; he has to burn this using candles in the hallway. Burning the ball allows Luigi to burn larger webs that the Poltergust 5000 cannot suck in.
In the Balcony (which Luigi first accesses by using the Dark-Light Device on the door and sucking up the Spirit Balls), Luigi must light up a stove. Then, he should suck in a dangling web in order to set fire to it and the large spider web. When Luigi progresses, he finds a web ball; Luigi must bring that ball to the stove and burn large spider webs around the right area.
In the Library, Luigi must first vacuum all the spider webs on the first floor. Then, on the second floor, he has to access the Library via the Dining Room. There, he can shine the Dark-Light Device on a fire painting. This lets the fire out, and it enables Luigi to set fire to a web ball. This burning web ball lets him burn large webs in this room.
In the Master Hall, Luigi should tilt a painting so that candles fall to the ground and burn a nearby web. This provides a reachable, fire spot for Luigi to drag the web cord or web balls into. Burning the web cord enables Luigi to suck in a web ball. This web ball provides fire for the large spider webs Luigi's Poltergust 5000 cannot suck.
In the Bedroom, there is a dangling web cord. Luigi has to operate the stove first, but the web cord cannot reach the stove by using the Poltergust 5000. Rather, Luigi has to use the ceiling fan to draw the web cord into the flames from the stove to burn it and any large webs in the room.
To access the Rafters, Luigi has to pull a cord in the Master Hall after the webs have been cleared. He should then proceed sucking up all the spider webs in this area. To walk across the plank, the player has to use the gyroscope function of the 3DS to not let Luigi fall. After Luigi walks across the plank, he has to shine the Dark-Light Device on the fire portrait in order to make a fire appear; this fire can burn the nearby web cord and let it burn the web adjacent to it. The last area where web is always there is where a painting and a web cord are there. Luigi must suck up a picture of cheese to reveal another fire portrait to shine with the Dark-Light Device. Luigi has to pull the web into the fire and let it loose to burn the last web.
Clean up those darn spiderwebs! They're blocking our progress AND they ruin the furniture AND they're just plain gross!
