Here I'll start with the first few missions, then in later versions I'll set up different missions, but for now... It's the first ones. Mission Origin: Neutral * No Origin * 1: Drive to the Base (Neutral. Easy. ) To allied base: When you're first starting, you'll be on a plane. After Fiona, your ExOps support and voice over character briefs you on some of the basics, you'll have to get your gear. Pick up the Carbine, M67 Frag Grenades, and your PDA, which is YOUR LIFE! After that another custscene type thing, this time the pilot says, " The area is hot. We're coming in low and fast. Get ready to drop." After that the Lever on the wall will become useable. Walk up to it and use action button, * Triangle * and another cut-scene type thing will come up, Fiona will ask you " Are you ready? You know they say the De-Militarized zone is the most dangerous place in the world? You better not mess this up. 100,000,000... do you think you can spend that in one lifetime?" after that your character will pull the lever and the plane's door will open. After that, the Vehicle will become useable. Hit triangle to begin this mission. You'll be dropped out of the plane behind allied lines. Drive to the gate, and wait for it to open. When it does, proceed forward, towards the north. You'll encounter a bunch of crates in the middle of the road. Just drive around them. After that Fiona should say, " Great, they've blocked the road. You'll need to find away around." Me, being the destructive type, just drove through it. Though you'll sustain a little damage, it's nothing major. Though you can drive up a hill to your left to avoid the crash damage. After that, follow the road and you should come up to a little conflict. North Koreans are attacking the allies, and you need to get them to allied Hq. Drive behind the allies and honk (Circle) your horn. The allies should get in your car. Slowly drive, if your vehicle has health, so the allies can take out the North Koreans. A little up the road you should encounter more light Korean resistance and several more allied soldiers. Don't worry if they all can't fit in the car, you only need to take back the ones from the conflict. Drive around the road and Fiona will say, " Head north to the allied HQ." There isn't really a road, but a few tiny houses. Drive through the middle of these and right up to the allied Hq. 1B Exit the vehicle, Triangle, and walk to the Guard. Hit triangle to enter the Hq, and Colonel Garret should start speaking. You'll sit down, and interrupt him. He chooses to hire you, but tells you to never interrupt him again. Accept the contract, and then exit the room. Get into the vehicle that's parked outside, and honk the horn. (This isn't required but I find you may need a machine gunner and a back up gunner just incase the main is taken out.) Drive north, until you reach some roadblocks. Drive around them, and up the hill to the Flashing icon. Exit the Vehicle by pressing L1, this will keep the soldiers in the vehicle, but you'll exit. Kill the few soldiers, and precede up to the Number Card. Don't kill him; he's valuable. Hit Square to stun him and triangle to subdue him. Once he's in captive, you'll receive your air extraction. Throw it in the middle of the little field. And wait until the helicopter pilot says, " okay, I see your smoke. I'm at the LZ" Then pick up the Number Card Triangle, and bring him to the chopper. Press triangle to load him in, and you'll receive your payment for his capture. If you kill him, verify him by pressing triangle near his dead body. After this, you'll receive " Surgical Strike " which is pointed by a laser. Equip this, and aim at the middle of the Artillery. You'll get two kills for one strike. If you don't, just take them out individually. After you've taken them out, drive back to the allied Hq. Talk to the guard again and receive your payment. Congratulations, Mission complete. Mission Origin: South Korean (South Korean, Easy.) 2 After you complete your contract with the allies, youll be prompted to visit Agent Buford, who runs the South Korean forces in the area. Drive to the SK HQ and accept the contract. Youll have to defend Kaesong. Head to the northern defense point, which is flashing with a yellow circle, and mount the Heavy Machine gun. Fire out NK forces, until theyre defeated. Quickly run to the next point, and do the same. Except this time its a Recoilless Rifle (Rifle? No. Big ass Rocket Launcher? Yes.) Defend that point, and then quickly move to the next point. Another recoilless rifle, defend this point, and return once again to the northern most defense point. Finish off the forces here, and youll receive your payment and be prompted for your next contact, the Russian Mafia. Congratulations, Mission Complete! Mission Origin: Russian (Russian Mafia, Easy/Medium) 3 Now, go see Sergei, the local godfather of the Russian Mafia. The Russian mafia is a valuable ally, for they control the black market Merchant of Menace Which in a later date in the game becomes your savior of existence. Anyway, accept the contract, and head outside. Find a vehicle, and head towards the NK transport truck. Watch out for the Machine gun, if youre in a vehicle youre heading into a meat grinder. Exit the vehicle and take out the machine gun nest, either with a grenade, C4, or maybe some foul words. After youve taken out the first one, proceed on taking out the other two, then clear the main base and get in the NK Truck. Drive back to the Russian Hq, and park in the garage thats flashing on your screen. Youll receive your payment, and access to the Merchant of Menace in your PDA. Here you can order air strikes, vehicle drops, and supply drops. (See my other FAQ for help on drops.) Missions you complete after this will unlock new vehicle drops, supply drops, and different air strikes. Congratulations, Mission Complete! Mission Origin: Chinese (China Easy/medium/hard) 4 Now head to Colonel Zhou, I believe it is Zhou. If it isnt so sorry. But none- the-less get to the Chinese HQ and accept the contract. Get in the tank once youre outside. Its not a tank, but it has the huge rifle on it. Once you fire, the right analog stick controls the rocket. Drive to the Museum. You dont have to destroy the barracks if you dont want to or cant. But you must destroy the museum. After you have done this, youll be prompted to play the field. Visit the Allies, SKs, Chinese, or Russian Mafia after this and do more contracts. That is it for this part, second part coming soon!
