In this paper, we classify all the hyperbolic noncompact Coxeter polytopes of finite volume whose combinatorial type is either that of a pyramid over a product of two simplices or a product of two simplices of dimension greater than one. Combined with the results of Kaplinskaja (1974) and Esselmann (1996), this completes the classification of hyperbolic Coxeter N-polytopes of finite volume with n+2 facets.
