A Brief Foreword * ***************************************************************************** Well, darn. Money is tight around here. I don't own this game, I rented it for five days and I decided to get a guide going once I saw that no one else did. Geez, it's been a long time since this game came out, I would have thought I was hella late. Oh well, someone has to do this. And I'm sorry for all the people who never got a guide for this game shortly after it came out. I'll will begin by saying I'm no expert at this game, and I know many of my solutions to the problems are horribly flawed. None the less, I did manage to get through, and some of my strats are rock solid, some aren't. Just bare with me and take the variations in stride; I don't have time to really analyze the game top to bottom. This is a great game, though not as complex as GRAW. This game focuses on intense fire fights since you can only do limited sneaking. If you played Gears of War, same concept: take cover, scope out the bad guys, then pop and shoot. Raid rooms is the added dimension, and multiple entry points make for some moments of sheer awesomenessicity. My guide is on the normal settings, and yes, many of my plans will result in you taking a few hits - thankfully you can take a few. So maybe you need to plan extra hard if you go for more challenging fair. The graphics and gun play are enough to make this a great game, though I could easily see not adding this to your collection; it is the same tactics and game play over and over, with very little variation. Still, something about the fights make this a great game, and the tight spots are way cool. Worth the buy or rent (rent in my case). And sorry for short guide with the bare minimum, I'll do better for the games I own. Have fun, TheGum PS - stay tuned for RE5, that game will be super cool crazy! ***************************************************************************** * 2. Controls lortnoc * ***************************************************************************** A - Interact/Team move B - Throw Grenade X - Reload; Hold for weapon options Y - Switch Weapons; hold for inventory LS - Move; click to crouch RS - Look/aim; click to zoom LT - Take cover RT - Fire LB - Rules of Engagement (team orders) RB - Switch vision; hold for vision menu D-Pad - Team orders; Down will order team to hold or regroup Start - duh Back - Tag enemies; hold to toggle map (very important) There are some voice commands, but whatever (don't ask me). The rules of engagement change the team orders. Assault will give your team lethal commands, while Infiltration gives them passive ones, or at least more passive. You can press A when your crosshair is over certain objects to do different things, but it usually just sends your team over to a critical point. The screen map is your friend, use it often. ***************************************************************************** * 3. Weapons snopaew * ***************************************************************************** ======= Weapons ======= I was going to go in depth with these things, but I don't have the time. Here are their stats, for some reason. They all seemed pretty much the same to me, so go figure. I used the SCAR and mixed it up from time to time with another gun, to test it out. Only used a sniper rifle two times. Shotguns are better than you think, but I don't like them. *** KEY DAM = damage RAN = range ACC = accuracy MAG = magazine size *** The drops are found on enemies and will be in your selection screen for the rest of the game. -------------- SUBMACHINEGUNS I never used these things, but you can, I guess. MP5N DAM 5 RAN 2 ACC 8 MAG 30 MP7A1 DAM 4 RAN 3 ACC 8 MAG 40 UMP45 DAM 5 RAN 3 ACC 9 MAG 25 MP9 DAM 5 RAN 2 ACC 9 MAG 30 MAC 11 DAM 4 RAN 2 ACC 6 MAG 32 P90 (DROP) DAM 4 RAN 2 ACC 7 MAG 50 ------------------ LIGHT MACHINE GUNS MK46 I like this one the best. DAM 7 RAN 4 ACC 4 MAG 100 21E DAM 6 RAN 3 ACC 6 MAG 100 M249 SPW DAM 8 RAN 4 ACC 4 MAG 100 MG36 (DROP) DAM 7 RAN 4 ACC 4 MAG 100 -------------- ASSAULT RIFLES 552 COMMANDO Decent gun, I like it. DAM 8 RAN 7 ACC 4 MAG 30 AK-47 DAM 7 RAN 5 ACC 4 MAG 30 FAMAS I like this one too, handles real good. DAM 7 RAN 6 ACC 4 MAG 25 G3KA4 DAM 7 RAN 8 ACC 5 MAG 30 M8 DAM 7 RAN 6 ACC 4 MAG 30 MTAR21 DAM 8 RAN 6 ACC 4 MAG 30 SCAR-H CQC This is my favorite, so far. It has a good scope, decent stats, and it looks bad as heck, and that does count for something. DAM 7 RAN 8 ACC 5 MAG 30 ------------- SNIPER RIFLES M40A1 DAM 10 RAN 9 ACC 10 MAG 05 PSG1 DAM 8 RAN 9 ACC 10 MAG 05 SCOUT TACTICAL The better of the sniper rifles, but they are all pretty much the same. DAM 10 RAN 9 ACC 10 MAG 05 I think there is one more, oh well. -------- SHOTGUNS M3 DAM 8 RAN 2 ACC 3 MAG 08 SPAS 12 The best shotgun, but I don't like any of them that much. DAM 9 RAN 2 ACC 3 MAG 08 870MCS DAM 9 RAN 2 ACC 3 MAG 08 -------- HANDGUNS MK.23 DAM 5 RAN 3 ACC 6 MAG 12 USP40 DAM 4 RAN 3 ACC 5 MAG 13 92FS Solid handgun, my choice.

BREACHING CHARGE ---------------- Only good for guys directly in front of doors, and they supposedly stun the others in the room. I never used them. FLASHBANG --------- Will blind the bad guys for a while, I say get these. FRAG ---- Get these too; a must really. Has a big blast radius. Sucks when the bad guys toss them at you. SMOKE ----- Put on your thermals and run into a room with smoke. The enemy can't see you that well (maybe later in the game they do). Required for one spot. INCENDIARY ---------- Ahh, brings me back to RE4. Almost as deadly as frags, but not as damaging. Use them at some point though. ***************************************************************************** * 4. Walkthrough rhtklaw * ***************************************************************************** Read ahead to get a feel of what is to come. I'm just here to tell you what to expect and try to solve some tough spots, but you will find many variations and I'm sure there are better ways. I'm just human, and I don't even own this game... Ha! ====== =MEXICO= ====== mex1234 Mexican Streets --------------- You start with the MP5N, and it doesn't have a scope, just a laser pointer. Your 552 COMMANDO isn't much better, but use it for this mission. The MK.23 is your handgun, and it ain't too bad either. Go forward to the piece of concrete and press and hold LT to take cover. Move the RS around and get your crosshair onto the bad guy, who hopefully did not spot you. With the crosshair on the enemy, push the LS either up or to the side to poke your head up, then press the RT to get some shots off. I know it sounds hard, but get use to this control scheme as you will essentially repeat these tactics through the whole game. Click the LS to crouch, hold the X button to bring up your weapon's options, and hold the Y button to pull up your weapons menu. Crouching is purely optional and is best used when there are many obstacles between you and the bad guys. On the weapon's options menu, you get to choose a silencer and what kind of fire you want; use the silencer for single enemies, and change your rate of fire depending on the intensity of the battle, but the rate of fire really doesn't matter (at least on normal). Back to the game, take a shoulder to the wall's corner and look for bad guys. None right now, but it is a good habit. Go into the open and take cover behind the tiny wall. Two guys will appear down the street, get a read on them and take them out, shouldn't be hard. You get a message about an alley, so take it. I say use the silencer and use a single fire rate. Peek around the corner and try to spot the lone enemy. Take him out, then move up to the corner and look for three enemies up the street. Try to take them out with headshots. You don't have to take the other hidden path, just keep going. Keep the silencer on and enter the building by the dumpster. Sneak up on the lone terrorist and splatter his brains. Ignore the doors and just go up the stairs. Follow the hall and take a left, then enter the room with a ladder and go up, then quickly take out the guy up here. Go the where he was standing and aim down to the streets (RS) and kill the guy you see moving. Look at the hook and go down; ignore the people in the window. Quickly take cover and scope out the way ahead. Go backward and snake your way down the back path. Take the corner down the second alley you find, so that you see down the original path, but aren't behind the enemies. You will see two nearby and another down a bit further. Headshot the one near you, and hopefully the other will not see you, so take him out. The last one should take cover, and if he doesn't see you, just poke out now and again to get his attention; then off him. Go up and take cover behind the truck, but don't go all the way to the back corner; you will be able to aim from the cover. You should see a guy on a balcony and another patrolling the streets. Shoot the one up high, then take out the other when he comes into view. Now stand up and take cover by the corner on the wall. A third guy comes out to investigate, so kill him too. Go where he came from and take the corner down the steps. There is one up high, and another will hop the fence nearby. The one on the ground will spot you, so get him quick and then the other. I sure hope you realize that all the shots I'm taking are headshots... Climb the fence and watch the tiny cutscene. Quickly go down the steps and take the corner. There are four on the streets and two of your guys on the church. You should be able to get two-three, and then mop up whatever is left; you can see through the smoke by pressing the RB to bring up your thermals. Enter the church and meet your dudes up top. Take cover, leave your guys where they are. Enemies will pop up from both sides of the church, but only a few from the direction of the stairs. Your guys should take out the ones behind you, but if you are taking hits, then you know to look behind you for the source. In front of you are three levels of guys, high, medium, low, and there are about three waves for each position. Take them out and go back down the stairs. Press Down on the d-pad to rally your team, and press A to send them somewhere. Press the LB to change their priorities: infiltrate is defensive, and assault is self-explanatory. I say keep them on the offensive, but I'm sure the sneak option is for the other one. I use my team as bait and decoys so I can survive fights. And they are usually better then you in a fight, so sending them first is a wise tactic, just make sure you are close behind and providing cover. Back to game, send your guys to the podium at the front of the church, then it doesn't really matter what you do. You can run to the seats in the center and provide support, I guess; just don't get killed. Watch for the guys on the right side of the church, and be ready for more to enter from the doors. The tiny scene does not mean the fight is over, so wait for a calm. When it seems to be over, just send your guys in front of you as you leave through the doors. Go around and send your team to the doors, and then wait behind the truck. After the bomb goes off, go to the edge of the doors and provide support. The enemies should hide behind some slabs down the road. When it seems quiet, send your team down the road and then follow; there are no more in the area. There are three doors to the next building, and I say put your team on the middle one, near the front. Go to the door and snake it by looking at the bottom. Press the Back button to set a target on one of the guys. Go to the other door on the right and look through for the other guy. Stand back and then press Up on the d-pad, wait for one second, then open your door, and take out the other one. I guess you can set a second target, do this so you will know where the guy is that you are going to shoot. This is all too much, but you should at least know how raid rooms. Go out the door and stack your team on the door on the bottom. Look through, set a mark on the guy up high, then go up the stairs. Snake this door and spot the two guys. The game plan is for you to tell your team to frag and clear, you open this door, and then you take out the guys on the upper levels. Do this and take cover by the railing and simply pop and shoot to clear the upper catwalks while your team takes out the guys on the bottom (what they do down there is a mystery to me, but they seem to do fine). When things seem quiet, press and hold the back button to see if any tangos are in the area, then act accordingly. Might be one more guy when you move around up top, so just do whatever and then get to the fast rope to end this part of the mission. Trainyard --------- Get the assault rifle SCAR-H CGC, and the sniper rifle Scout Tactical, and then trade your handgun for a 92FS. I say bring some frags and flashbangs, but it's up to you. Set your assault rifle to silent and single fire, then whip out the sniper. Come outside and get in the middle of the trains and look up to take out a patrolling goon. Go to the right and look down for another guy with plenty of white and grey matter, trapped inside that skull. (the RS is the scope, in case you forgot) I say attack by keeping your guys in the center, and you move along the right side of the trainyard. It's too much to explain, but you stay to the right and keep moving your guys to cover. When you get toward the white train car, you should be able to see three guys, so snipe them all. Mover your team up, switch to your assault rifle, and then sneak to the very right corner of the yard and you should see a guy on a turret. Take him out, and then send your guys to where he was; might kill a guy on there way. Keep following the tracks and keeping your team under cover (I'm not really sure how many are in the area, or where they are, but you'll be fine). There are a couple of guys at the end, so be cautious. Keep your guys on the ground as you take the ladder by the wall, and once you are on the catwalk bring your team up. Go inside and get through the door. Stack your team on the first door you see. Quickly snake it and set this order of marks: middle, left, and right. You will tell your team to flashbang, but you will enter from the other door on the side and take out the guy farthest away. Be sure to flashbang, and then wait for your guys to enter before you go in. Again, this is all too much, but you never know. Go through the door when all is said, and set your team to fast rope. Before you send them down, get out the sniper rifle and position yourself next to the railing. Send them down and be ready to take out guy by the crate that pops up - it must be magic! Don't go down the rope, but send your team to the white train, and then keep scanning for targets. Set your team to offense, and wait for enemies, some of which will appear below you. Then move your team from corner to cover along the trains, all from your perch. Send them to the crate by the building where you saw the first guy, then go join them; and some more bad guys might pop up, just do whatever. Behind the crate is a door below. Stack up your team, then tell them to frag and clear. They should be able to clear so enter when it's over. Send them down to the back of the second train, down the dark hallway. Whip out the sniper and go down the right side of the other train car, but do it slowly. If you poke around the corner, you will barely be able to see a bad guy to the left, but get him with the perfect shot. Then put up the sniper and come back as some more terrorists are engaged by your buddies. Send your team to one of the concrete blocks down the tracks. That should bring up a few more guys, and there is another to the left, behind some crates. Send your team to the first train car and you will provide some support. There is a ladder to the right. You could go down, but just make sure that you don't get surprised by the ones that pop up. Work your team to the bricked wall that leads into the other room, and then move them around from cover to cover so that the bad guys will pop out. When you want to send them in, make sure they are behind cover facing the fencing into the other room; and they should handle the enemies on the other side. Make your way to the stairs and bring your team up. Send them inside the upper room, and be ready for one last guy on this upper level. There might be some in the next, big room, so proceed by sending your team in first. Then put them on the hook, and line up with them. Send them down in assault mode and they should clear the way. When they reach the bottom, just send them in and the mission is over. Tunnels ------- Go forward into the lighted area. You got two options: either take the door down below, or assault the room from the top. You don't got a good read on the enemies up high from the bottom. And the top is not going to be a sneaking mission. But I say take the top path anyway, and there are only four guys in here anyway. Put your team on a corner down the hallway and they should handle the ones up high. Keep advancing them and you will mop up the bad guys in no time. Get to the ground and set your team to blow up the door. Go through and get in her face to trigger a "scene." You wake up with only your handgun, so be thankful for it. Go along the path until you run into a hall with a big hole on one side and a crate on the other. Equip your silencer and kill the guy through the hole. Slowly move under the light ahead, and look up. Kill the guy at the top of the stairs, and then take his gun. Proceed until you run into a path with a fork and two guys at the other end; it's a small fork, so check your map to find it. Hide behind the first box and pop up to take out the first guy, then the next, and then another in the same area. There is one more, but you have to go down the path to spot him; go around the left path to use the wall as cover. Then get to the box where all the guys were killed and play peek-a-boo with the last enemy. (for all of this, be crouched and use the handgun) Keep on truckin' til you reach another fork, but creep down the steps while taking aim toward the left so you can get the next terrorist. Pull out the old shotgun and creep around the left and get ready for another guy around the corner, hide behind the barrels. Go into the next section of hallway, and then take cover behind a trashcan that looks down the steps. There are two guys down the way, plus three more inside the room. Go forward and be cautious as you aim to the left, then stay at the end of the hallway as you take out the guys on either side of the room. You could run guns blazin' to the cover on one side, then take out the other from that side, or whatever works, just don't die on this part. Enter the door to end this mission. Factory ------- No enemies in the area, so follow the path until you find a rope on the wall and take it all the way up - no enemies in the windows. When you near the top you should be able to see the head of an enemy; take him out, wait, and then get the guy who comes to investigate. Hop out and take the door to the left, and be ready for a guy behind the door in the hallway. Enter the room for the next bit of info. Pull out your handgun and enter the big room. You should be able to make out a guy on the ground and another in the room across the way. Kill either one and then pull out your shotgun. Just wait by wall and be ready for about five or so guys to appear; don't engage them when they are on the ground, just let them come to you. Then pull out your other gun and go around the ladder they climbed up, kill any left. Make your way to the railing (check your map first) and locate the two guys on a catwalk below, then off 'em. That should be all, but check your map and proceed with some caution as you follow the stairs to the ground level. Go up the stairs on the side of the room to reach a door leading to the last part of this whole level. Look through the window to get a glimpse of a baddie to the left. Open the door and take him out before he leaps over the edge. Then peek over the side of the catwalk to the ground. Check your map and try to spot the three or so enemies down there; they are usually behind something. There is another one in the open, on the ground, and if you go to the railing on the left and look that way, you should be able to take him out. There should be only two more remaining: one at the other end, and one outside. Follow the catwalk and get behind the turret quickly to take out the gunner before he can get to cover. Hit the floor and be ready for whoever may be left inside the building, and then get the last guy outside, to the left. Then go out and hop into the copter to end this whole level. Inside, switch your shotgun for a SCAR, and then get your sniper rifle. ========= =LAS VEGAS= ========= las1234 I've been to the strip, and it looked a lot like it does in the game; no, it was more chaotic in real life, and much more dangerous. HA! The Strip --------- You get two new decoys, I mean teammates. Get out your sniper and move up while looking down the street, but be quick or you will miss the guys that appear. Try to stay where you are and snipe as many as possible. Move your team to cover, then you should go around the big bus on the right. You should run into a few guys nearby, so take them out and keep your team moving up. Get them behind the big van looking down the small path, then you should slowly move your squad along the path, in case some stragglers pop up. Set your guys behind the nearby taxi at the end of the path, and then you go all the way to the left, and poke around the big bus. There will be one guy back here, for some reason. Then move to where he was and direct your team to a small block that houses a tree (not the one near you, but down the way a bit). This will get the nest moving and a bunch of enemies will get set. They tend to try and flank you from the left side, along the sidewalk, so be ready. Get to where your guys are fighting, and then simply crouch and stand behind some cover to take out the red spots on your map. Move your team to new cover after a while and keep up the routine. Work your way to the next path, where there should be two guys near its end. Watch the news. Go around the bus, and send your team to the truck across the way. Go to the other side of the road and more bad men with guns will appear. Get your fellowship of goodness behind another tree stand and be ready for more guys to take the sidewalk. Move them to the next tree stand and keep low as you handle the situation. Eventually move your team into the cars on the street. Should have all the enemies done in. There is an outfitting station in the streets, but you don't need it, unless you do for ammo. When taking on the next area, I found that sending your team to the white car at the end of the path works best as you take cover behind the blue truck. They should take out the guys around them, and you should aim for the enemies that move around by the palm leaves across the way. Check the map for anyone left on the either side, and then move toward the wall of the casino when the coast is clear; may be one or two left over. Go into the building and go through the door. Stack your guys up on the white doors, then send them in to take out a bad dude. There are two doorways into the office, but use the door inside the small room to the left. Send them in with frag and clear, then you go inside through the other door. Tossing a frag to the far corner might get a few, then just send in your guys to mop up. Grab a GLOCK 18 from the ground, it is a cool gun. Send your guys into the next room to end the mission. Calypso Casino -------------- Go through the door to the right, and stack your men on the door at the end. Set a mark on one of the guys, then come back and snake the other door. Look to the left to set one of those guys as a mark. You will send your band in with frag and clear, then you go in and take out the guys to the left of your door. Then go over to their position and move them along the rows of slots. When they go up, more guys should pop up. They will try to flank your teammates, so you need to snake through the slots and get them first. Move your team to cover in the next section, then get them under the truck in the center. Men with dirty mouths will pour into the area and attack from all sides. You should cover one side, then move your team to the other side, and eventually get over there yourself; or at least that is what I did. And then make your way to the small room, where one or two guys might be hiding. Pick up a Desert Eagle if you can, and then get some more ammo from the box of goods. Enter the next area and make your way to the rapple point; use it. Go around the vents and put your guys on the openings, then you flank the bad guys from another point in the vents. Just send your team into the next room and you will take out all the bad men. Then send your team into the hallway through the doors in front of you, they should get both guys from both sides. At the end of the hallway, to the right, stack your guys on the door and tell them to enter and clear. Then follow and mop up. Go up the stairs and put your bff on the computer. Get ready for some guys to pop up that you were not expecting. They will pop up from the left and right stairs. Then go out the door to the right to clean up, then stack your team on the door on the other end. Somehow, these two did not hear the magnificent gun fight outside, but send in your team to clear their ears out. Get to the floor and follow the path through another door; there may be a new in hiding. Stack them on the first door, and send them in there guns blazin'. Then go through the next two doors, and stack your guys on the doors at the end of the hallway. Send them in for two more guys, and then go up the sets of stairs. Stack 'em on the door as you watch the scene. Set a mark and send 'em through, but you keep a read on the door across the way. Move in when all is well. Send your squad into the next section and put them behind the center thingy. Then wait behind cover as some more terrorists drop in. Clear them out however you please. Then send your gang up the steps, and quickly send them back to the center thingy. Peek and shoot as you wish, then send them back up the stairs when all is well again. Surprise! more guys will appear when they get to the top, so bring them back to the ground and pick off the enemies where needed. This time you can go up the steps and no more fighting, that is if you cleared them all out, so be on your toes. From here, choose to go up with the stairs on the walkway, the other is behind some doors. Repeat the process on this level, then again, and again until you can't go up through these stairs. Take the path through some doors and then up to the next level, which is surprisingly clean. Past the save point, go through the doors, then go into the room on the left for some ammo. Stack them up and snake the door. Set a mark on the guy on the floor, then position yourself so that you can shoot the guy on the stage through your scope as soon as the door opens. Again, might be overkill, but just look cool saving the hostages. There are three more guys in the other room and once they are gone you can claim the hostages. Go to the last checkpoint to end this mission. Casino Floor ------------ Go forward and notice the two paths to the other side. Send you mates to one side as you take the other. You should be able to direct them from your side, so inch them forward; there are only two guys between both sides, but there are more on the floor that may come up. When you reach the end, about five enemies drop from the skies, so handle them and regroup on the stairs. Send your team to cover on the floor as you stay on the steps and direct traffic. Move them closer to the center gambling pit so that more guys drop into the fray, and be ready for them to attack from both sides. After that it is just a matter of killing the ones in the pit. Take the stairway to the right and stack your team on the door. Snake it and try to mark both guys, then send in the good guys and make sure you watch the door across the way. Set your team behind some of the blue things and help them clear the area. Go forward to end this mission. VIP Escort ---------- I say assault the captors from above by using the skylight on the patio. Set your team to the fast ropes, then send them in when you get a read on the guy holding the hostage. Take him out, send in your team, then do your best to provide support from above. Tossing down a flashbang might help before you go down. Mop up and claim the prize. Make sure you make him follow you. Follow the path and round the corner down a hall, get the lone ranger before he gets you. Stack them dudes on the door and tell them to frag and clear, but make your follower hold in the hall. Keep a read on the door across the way as your team clears the room. Quickly send them to the next door down some steps in the same room. Then you come out the door up top, and be ready for a guy to approach from the upper level. Send your guys to clear and then take cover behind the obstacle at the top of the bottom set of stairs; the thing with the railings that you can see across the room to the other stairs as guys pour out. When your team clears out the room they were at, send them to one of the tables near your set of stairs. Then you need to take cover on the upper level behind the little walls next to the real walls up here, but be sure to clear out the guys on the walkway that can see you. With you and your team, the area should be cleansed in no time. Send them to the opposite set of stairs, go get the follower, and then get some more ammo. I don't care what you get, so long as you have something with a good scope. Join the team and get to the top of the first set of stairs, look at the hallway, but don't go inside. Look as far as you can down it and then toss a frag down there to clear it out, then send your team in the hall just in case. If no one is left, just get your friend and make your way to the chopper outside to end this mission. Have the SCAR, PSG1 (or whatever), Eagle, Frag, and Flashbang. ============== =Fremont Street= ============== fre1234 Red Lotus --------- Watch the scene, then go to the sky light and look down for the two bad guys below. Get them, then go around and take out the other two on the top of the stairs (use the thermals if you can't see them). Set your team to the hooks and send them in on assault mode. Should be just two tangos left, so clean up and move to the door up top. Go to the door on the far right and snake it. Put a mark on the closest guy, then another on the other. Stack your team on this door, then you go to the door on the far left. Snake it to scope out the opposition, two guys. Get ready and send in your team on frag and clear as you enter at the same time. You have to help your team out, use your thermals when they toss a smoke, and get your team to you - put them behind the table near the middle doors if you can. Then simply snuff everyone out. Move your team along the walkway to the other side to test the waters. Go through the next door to be ready for the next setup. This area is more complex than the last. Stack your guys on one of the two doors in this main hallway, then you go snake out the other door on the right. Just one guy in here. This is the gameplan: send in your team, take out your one guy, then join your team, set them to cover facing the opposite side, and then you take the cover on the other side of your side. Essentially, you should put your team on the right, and you get on the left of the staircase. Enemies will be on both sides on the second level, them come from the opening up high, and they will hide on the bottom too. If you keep checking your map, and keep a look on the opening on their side, you should be able to get what your squad misses. And FYI, there was a stair in the hall behind you; they didn't take it when we stormed the balcony, but they did when we took to the room with the ammo, so just know that. Send your team behind a statue on the ground, then get them to the opening across the way. Put 'em on the hooks to end this mission. Fremont Street -------------- Go forward and put your congregation on the door to the left. Quickly snake it and put two marks on the guys not holding the girl. Send them in, and you should take try to take out the guy with the girl. Then put them in cover facing the tables as you mop up the few guys above your position. Stay near the door after the reporter splits and just wait for the guys to rush your team. When it seems clear, send your squad farther down the way as you cover them from the corner; whatever you do stay away from the short ends on the tree stand things. There will be plenty of hard-to-shoot guys as you move up, so have some patience. Move through the last bits of this casino into Fremont Street. Send your guys to the central thing up ahead and provide support. Once the civilians are safe, you should go up the ladder on the left. Move your guys toward the center area and put them behind the cover of the tiny bastions sticking from the things that hold some plants, the plant holders. From the corner of this upper area, you should be able to move from one corner of the corner, since you can't see out the direct corner, and get good reads on the whole fight. Keep an eye on the right as that seems to be where a lot of guys come from, but look from the left as the fight starts (it starts when your guys reach the plant holders). From the left, be sure to check the ladder down the ways, as I was killed one time by a sneaky fox. Provide support and move your guys if needed to win the battle. *Obviously the above gameplan did not work, or else I wouldn't have had this one. Bring your team with you to the upper path and set them to one opening while you take the other. Battle goes much smoother. And yes, don't drop down the ladder, be sure to use it. If you do this one, then when you get to the ground there might be a few guys under the path you took, and the explosion will make two more guys appear when you get to the intersection.* Move your team up and keep them in behind cover as another wave of guys pops up out of nowhere. Take them out and keep moving to a stair case (check map) where three more guys will rush you if you aren't ready. Go through the door down there and send your men down to end this mission. *There was an alley on the other side, but whatever, it probably wasn't as fun as this side.* Behind the Curtains ------------------- Go and look down the hall, and send your guys to the wall at the end so they will kill the two patrolling enemies. Then move up and set them to the first flat column. You should stay on the corner of the original hallway and direct the flow of the fight. They should be able to handle the situation after a certain amount of time, but then they won't be able to kill one guy down the way behind a crate; and they might not be able to kill a guy two columns down. Check the map and intervene where appropriate, and use a frag on the guy in hiding. Move your team first up the path in case there is another enemy. Move along until you reach a new setup. There are two doors, the one on the far right has a bad guy in front of it. Put your men on that one, then you go to the first one and snake it. Put on the thermals for this fight, and crouch. You will send in your team guns blazin', and you will use the cover of the piping near your door for safety. If you are unable to get a couple of bad guys in here, then your teammates will most likely get hurt. So put them first before anything, but just know that these enemies have some grenades. They don't have frags, and you could probably use one for the last ones that hide in the center area. Proceed along the path and through a door to another ammo crate. Keep what you got, I guess, then stack your men on the door. Send them in, then you crouch and go out the door, but be sure to get the guy that might be right near the door. Tell your team to fall in on you as you set up near the hooks. Take out the guys on the ground and on the catwalks, use thermals if needed, and then go along the walkway. Stack and send in your team into the room up here. Come back out and return to the hooks. Send them down, and look to the right to provide cover fire. Try to send your men to cover, and use your thermals if they smoke your vision. Hopefully your guys don't get wounded, and you can just stay up high and pick prey off. I believe that when you start to move along the path, two guys will rush the hooks you took and try to sneak up on you, so be ready. And when you try to enter the hallway, a guy will be in the opening to the left. Keep going and your guys will run into one guy in the small room. Go further to a ladder and get to the next part of the level. Keep your team on you, and go through the door, then just wait for a guy to come out the next door. Send your team in, or toss in a frag, to clear out the next room. Go through the next doorway on the right and there should be one more tango. Go up the nearby stairs and through the door into a hallway with many doors. Check each out (snake): one is a bathroom, and the other two lead to the next room. Enter the door near the bathroom, and then put your buddies on the corner of the wall, then you take cover behind the overturned table up here. When the first group of guys are finished, move up to the railing that faces the bar and take out as many tangos as you can. There is one far down the path, behind a counter; he is the most dangerous, but some dam plants don't let you see him from up here. Send your team to the cover by the booths and rub your rabbit's foot that they don't toss incendiaries and rush your guys with shotguns. If they survive, join them and finish off whoever might still breathe. Go through the door into the next hallway with three more doors. Send your team to the one on the left, ignore the one on the right, and enter the one in the middle. Don't be scared to look out the window toward the objective. There is one guy on the ground nearby, and another on the walkway across the road. Look down to the left for two more guys by the fence. Set these two with marks, and wait for them to be near the range of your guys. You will send your team into the streets as you take out the guy by the tree, then the one across the way. Do so, set your guys behind the white van, and be ready for one more enemy to shoot at you from the streets, but your guys should take him out. Grab some supplies and join your team. Send your business partner to the van and then take shelter behind the two blocks up the road. Leave your free man by the van and get ready for one heck of a fantastic fight. Be ready when they toss smoke, and watch both sides of the road. They will try to rush you by running right up the center, so don't let them get behind you. Your cover fire is surprisingly accurate, so just keep your gun active and you should be fine. Be sure to get the one guy that takes a perch up high, to the left. And the fight is not over until the new objective pops up. Simply place a bomb and run down the road to end this mission. ========= =The Spire= ========= spi1234 Tower Top --------- Don't take the sky lights this time. Turn around and locate the door leading to a stairwell, and go to the bottom. Put on the silencers and get your team on the door to the right. Snake it and tag both guys, then send 'em in. Pull back out and go to the other door to do the same, except you can only see on of the tangos. Go in and watch the door across the kitchen as about three more will take interest. When it seems safe, go to the door with your team and take cover. Pull up your map and if it says there are two behind the bar, toss a frag in there. Enter the room and make sure it is clear. Whip out the old flashbangs and get ready to descend the stairs on the side of the room. Send down your team first, then run down and toss a flash grenade toward the bad guys to buy you all time to get to the cover on the floor level. Then it is just a matter of not dying, as usual. Descend the next set of steps and set your guys on the wall to the left of the opening. There are two ways to go from here, and the right side is a dead end with just two guys. Stack your team on the door taking the other path, but then check your map. There are two other doors leading to two bathrooms. The first, bigger one will have one guy. Open this one and take him out. Then snake the door leading to the bigger room and watch the pattern of the patrolling guard. You want to open the door when he is directly in front of it, and then take cover by the door. When the other tangos have you pinned, send in your soldiers to spread the field, then you can come out and take out the guys around the bar. Go through the hall and stack your guys on the door. This is tricky, because you have to toss in a flashbang, let your guys clear out a few, then bring them back into the hall. You should take the safety of the wall by the door and try to clean house yourself; it will be hard since these guys can be anywhere. When it looks clear, send out your team behind some cover (not much) and then get out there yourself; I don't know what the spotlight does, but just ignore it. Not much to this next part but some dumb luck. Put your team under one of the little tents and hope they can see the enemies. They are on both sides near each pool, so take cover and play the game. When all looks clear, set your guys on the hooks and send 'em down to end the mission. Dr. Williams ------------ Take the red door on the left and descend the stairs. Snake the door down here and mark both terrorists to the right, then send 'em in. Now go the the door on the far left and snake it. You will hear some chatter about you, so tag two enemies and raid the room. There is another shotgun-wielding enemy in the corner. Going out the door will put you in the sights of three enemies to the right. If you got a frag, open the left door and toss it down the hall; I guess the same with a flashbang, then take them out. Either way, there are two more guys inside the room. Get ready to save the hostage. Stack your dudes on the door and snake it. There are three enemies, and you need to tag the one holding the hostage first, then put a tag on the closest guy; you will take the one in the middle, on the other side of the room. Let them open the right door, and then you open the left door as you got your scope fixed on the position of your guy. Should work perfectly, and your team will handle it if you don't. Go to the room to the left and get some ammo only if you need some, otherwise just save it for later. Go into the room to the left with some stairs and get to the top. Stack them on the door up here and snake it, tag the two guys by the railing to the left. There is one more guy around the tables, so try to open the other door and get him yourself. Once your team is on the top of the casino floor's second level, set them behind the square of tables close to the door. The enemy is extremely random in this section. There will always be a bunch of them on the bottom, hiding amongst the slots, and the rest will try to rush your level from either set of stairs. I believe they rush the sides that your team is on. If they are near the doors and you are in the bigger square of tables away from the door, expect for them to rush you from both stairs. I found it much easier for you and your teammates to go into the square of tables away from the door, and for some reason you don't get hit by grenades nearly as much - oh yes, I believe these enemies carry frags, joy. Make sure to rotate your guys from the two tables, so they can draw fire of the enemy and they can usually see them better than you, or they can see better than me. I don't know how to get through this perfectly, as there is just too much crap blocking your vision. So I really let my team handle the situation, as I just directed traffic. Don't let them get rushed, and then move around the top level when the bullets get slow. Cautiously send them down when it seems clear and go through the next door on the bottom, to the right (don't forget the ammo if you didn't get it the first time). Snake the next door and tag the two guys talking to each other. There are about three others that are patrolling around the stairs, so be alert. Watch both sides of the floor below for more as you descend the stairs. Stack them boys on the door and snake it. Don't tag anyone from here. Crouch and go around to the porch on the left. There is a bar near the door your team is on, and it has one guy behind it; tag him. Then cross over the door and get a read on the two other guys on the ground. One is near your door, behind a bar, and the other is a bit away from that one; tag the one farthest away from you. You will send your team in, and then you take out the guy close to your window. Be careful not to let the guys on the top level get you; if you are quick to kill your man, just hide behind the door and dash in when the bullets pause. Get your team in and make sure you clear the top level. Send a homeboy on the micro pulse bomb, oh the suspense! Now you got to get the heck out of here. Go back up the big stairs, and just one last guy to give you the jump from the door at the top. Then just tell them to follow you as you ascend, then rapple over the side and board the copter to end this mission. ============== =Dante's Casino= ============== dan1234 Oh yeah, no, gambling is no sin. This place is nice. Hell's Gate ----------- Go forward and set your team on the railing, join them and pick off tangos. Send your guys to the hook on the left, and then you get ready to take the stairs on the right. Send them down and then you take the steps. Your decoys should draw the enemy fire, and you should be able to sneak up on them. Put your guys in cover and send them along the left side of the site; you take the right side. Just keep moving your team and move along with them until you reach the ladder. Go up and set your team on the crates to the left of the small steps. They will distract the fire of the enemy while you rush them. You will first go to the first obstacle, then the one on the right, and then you will take out the guy ahead, but don't forget the one above you (hard to see). Check the map as you clear the area. Hook on the right side and begin dropping. Tell them to infiltrate and get positioned on the windows behind the guys below. When everyone is set, put them on assault and shoot one of the guys if you can. Go in and watch the bell fall. Slide down the ladder, and then put your team on defensive, also switch to silencers. All you you go down the double hooks, and then check the map for all three bad guys. I'm pretty sure they can't see you, so switch to night vision (RB) and take them out one by one; pull up your guys if you want to finish them off quickly. Go to the stairs and send your guys down there under cover fire. Go down there if things get tricky - and use your thermals, they aren't the best, but they work okay. Just use the map and take out everyone. Then take the stairs and repeat the process, but be ready for guys on all sides (use the dark to your advantage). Enter the little room and go into the lighted room for the next section. There are two doors into the next room. Stack them on the left door and just send them in with frag and clear; you can enter through the other door, but the timing won't work, you will probably get blown away. Go through the next door. There are a few ways to get into the next room. Leave your team back and go to the door up on the left. Snake it and watch the guy patrolling. Open the door and kill him, silently. Then crouch under the window and look into the room below. There are about four guys in here: three in the center and one on guard to the right on a walkway. Stack your team on the door. You will send them through on frag and clear, and you will raise up and try to get the one guy on the right. Enter the next section and stack your team on the next door. Snake it and tag the guy in the hallway. Frag and clear, and you can do something from the window on the side if you like. Go into the next area and go to the left where you will find an ammo crate and a door. Stack them and get some ammo. You can tag the patrolling guy then send them in on clear. The next section is a slot floor under construction. I say take the right path and attack from above. There is a guy up here, and after he is gone send them to overlook the area. You should help out, then take the stairs nearby that lead to the open. Weave through the slots, toss frags, use the map, and take out the large number of enemy tangos. Be sure to keep an eye on the opening on the opposite side up top. Stack on the door leading to the next room. Tag the two on the left and send them in, they should be able to clear it out. There are three more guys on the walkway above, so clear them out yourself. Move your team to the wall on the left and be ready for about three more guys in the next hallway, the hall with a bunch of arcades (one is Splinter Cell). Pick up the XM-26 LSS, swap your sniper rifle. Go into the arcade and free your old buddy. Get ready for a big rush of enemies from the other side. Put your team behind the arcades on the left and you hide behind the one on the right. Should take a few hits, but you should do fine, just the same pop and shoot routine as before. There will be two guys that drop in from above, so be ready when you hear glass break. Make sure to check your map often and watch in the right corner as guys will try to run up the steps and flank you guys, so get them first. Also keep an eye on when they try to rush you. All of the rushers have shotguns, so you know what you are up against in this one. Just keep patient, and if the action dies, put no call from the girl, then send your team into the open and draw out the survivors, but pull them back if another wave comes from the doors. When you get the call, follow Gabe to the bottom level; I picked up a FAMAS, swapping out the shotgun. When you go into the small hallway, a lone bad guy will try to get the jump on you. Put your team behind the center obstacle and go to the wall on the left. Just take care of these guys, which is not that easy, and get to the door to end the mission. Frags will help. Construction Yard ----------------- Crouch and go through the door, keep going until you reach a small railing. Look over and toss a frag into the two enemies. Set your team behind the two blocks near where the other two were and just take out tangos. Take the small path to the right, but watch out for a gunner waiting for you, and another above the path you took. There will be two more up high on the ledge. Bring your team up and go up the steps. Make your way to a bigger area, killing foos along the way. Then hide behind another railing to the right where you can kill about three more guys all around. Follow the path and reach the target by going down a ladder. Outfit yourself with some ammo, then get ready for a tango in the hallway. Go along and use the fast ropes. Kill some people, but don't kill the friendly on the ground. Send your guys into the piping and let them engage the trap. Watch the sad "scene". Go up the ladder and round the corners with your team. Put them on the railings near the turret and let them have at the enemies in the pit and around the high ledge. They will try to climb out, but see if you can stop them. Don't let the ones up here flank you from the left. Just stay low and go around this upper level to flank the ones in hiding. Follow the path and get some more ammo when the fight is over. Stack on the next door and set two marks on the guy you see and the patrolling dude. Send them in, and when the red marks go away, put your men on the small railing in front of the door. There will a couple of guys that fall on the open doorways in this walkway part. So go toward the right corner and wait for them to drop in, then watch the path on the right. Don't let them flank you or your guys from either side. When they stop trying to rush, you should try to flank them from the left and move your team with you. Just keep checking the map and play smart; they might try to flank you again. There is a gunner on the other side. Enter the Cerebus lobby. Set your team behind the wooden box and you take up point behind the black box. Get the gunner up high, and then just keep the mob at bay; there will be quite a few, but they never rushed me. Poke and shoot like you do. Then go up the stairs and end this mission. Dante's Theatre --------------- Go up the path and up the stairs to the right. Leave your team on the steps and put them on defense. Make sure your silencer is on. Creep forward and watch your map for tangos in the area, and stay down. One guy should patrol the area up here, and he was very blind when I got him. There are two more guys on the ground that are not by the doors. The guys by the doors talking should be left alone, and they won't notice as you kill the others. Make sure you are getting headshots and no one will know what you are doing. When you are sure that the extras are taken care of, and the two by the door are none the wiser, send your team to the center door in the lobby and send them in. Get some ammo from the crate. Okay, go through the first door on the left and kill the two guys on the top of the stairs. From there, it gets tricky. I say leave your team in this room while you go and clear all the upper levels of bad guys. You can get the jump on a few, but after a while they will know you're there. Start on the top level and kill as many from the shadows as you can. Then move down and clear the next level. When you reach the bottom level, you got two options: go back and assault the enemies with your team, or take them on yourself. It's not too hard to take care of it on your own. Go to a stairway, open the door, get a couple by surprise, and then retreat back into the stairwell. They will try to rush you, for some reason, so you can just pick them off. Or, you can do this and just have your team with you (you can tell I did this by myself and didn't die). So you do what is best, and frags help. Bring your team to the floor and then all you you should engage the guys on the stage by the turret on the left. *Oh, yeah, when you are on the top level, watch for a guy on a bridge high above the stage.* Go up the path to the left, may be one or two guys, and stack your team on the door at the end. Snake it to locate one guy to tag. Send them in, but don't follow or you'll get hit by a frag. Should be two more guys. Don't send your team through this next door. Open it and try to peek around the corner to the left. There is a door with an obstacle and a guy behind it. Try to peek and shoot him. Get on the stage and send a brother in arms to the computer. Don't get on the turret, it won't work. There are two spots to hide to the right of the computer and that is where you and your free man will take cover. You need to use the gun with the biggest magazine. Your goal is to protect the computer from the waves of enemies. It is like whack-a-mole, as they will appear from all the balconies and then the seats. Use any spare frags on the second wave and be quick to kill the bad guys. If your guy falls, got to leave him, but he should be fine and he should help you a bunch. Climb the ladder, and there will be a guy from the door on the other side of the walkway. When you are in the next room, toss a frag into the room on the right and that should get the other two bad guys. There will be one more on the steps ahead. Follow the path and get to the chopper to end this mission. ========== =Hoover Dam= ========== dam1234 I've been here too. Dam tourists! They call it the Nevada Dam, but I'm pretty sure it's the Hoover. I did a yahoo search and got the Hoover Dam as the Nevada Dam. The Bridge ---------- Go forward for a run-in with a worker. Hop over one of the railings to get on a walkway. Move your team along and eventually some guys will pop up from both sides when you get close. When it's safe up here, get to the rapple points and go down. Breach in and kill the terrorists, or shoot them through the windows first, your call (heck, you probably could've taken the stairs). Send a knight of the brotherhood to the bomb. Oh the horror! Some dam bad guys will attack from both sides while the dialogue runs. Go down the path and snake the door. You can handle the guys, but you can send in your team, or whatever. Then go out the next door and kill the guy on the catwalk, then the guy down below. There is one guy behind the next door, so handle him however. Then get to the ground level and snake the red door on the left. Tag both guys (one is behind the fenced area) and then go around to the other door and try to get the main dude as your team enters the room. Meet the dam hostage to end this dam mission. Spillways --------- Get outside. Tell the follower to hold, make sure your silencers are on, and then look way over to the right to get one guy on a walkway. Bring your guys to the ground and get rid of the two terrorists on the ground, or whatever that level is called. There will be about three more further down, and my team was able to kill them all, just keep 'em movin'. When the outside area is clear, be sure to collect the follower and set him below the walkway. Ascend the ladder with your team, then scope out the room below the skylight. You should be by the hooks when your team goes in, and you will shoot from above; there are about four or so guys in the room and you can hit three easily. Your follower will come in by himself when it is secure. Take the stairs in the back. Descend and take the door to the left. Stack up on the next door, but snake it just to see the red barrels on the ground. Put targets on the guys so you can get a relative picture of where the barrels are. You want to hit the barrels so that when you are in that room you are not blown to heck. Get inside after you clear it and then get your guys to cover, then watch out for guys to hide behind the forklift nearby (use the map) and set your men to a corner so that they can take out the guys down the path ahead. *Hardest part of game upcoming.* Put a son of Hades on the dam computer. Get ready for tangos to come in sets of four from around where you came from. There will also be a couple from the right side, but they sneak up on you after a while. There is only one way to get past this part, and even then you need a lot, I mean a lot of luck; or else you will be really pissed with this dam situation. You have to stay in the little room and aim at the opening door from out the window (it will be in front of the area you came from). Try to get a couple of guys, then get the ones that try to rush. If you don't get them, then it is all for naught. After those first few guys are down, turn around and look to the back for two more guys, who hopefully did not toss grenades in with you. Once they are gone you can focus on the main group, and pray they don't nail you with a frag. If your free man ever gets hit, you just got to let him bleed and hope you finish the job alone. Again, the first few guys that try to rush you are the key to success, if they get by you will restart from the last checkpoint. *Brett Persons has noted that tossing a few smoke grenades around may help. I would say that smoke should be thrown on your position, in the direction of the main flow of bad guys, and then to the garage door when it opens. The more smoke the better. Go along the path. When you reach the door to the second level, just send in your team and they should get the one guy and then the two others guys that come in from both sides. Go into the next room and put your guys behind cover as you get into the main section. There will be a few guys on the left, and a few that drop in from the roof. Then cautiously peer into the bottom area and take out the many enemies. Send your team to some cover down there and that should cause a few more to drop in from above. Be sure to advance your team into unknown places. Take the path next to the room, and then pick off the tangos in the next section one by one; remember to move from cover to cover. Move up the stairs and put your men behind some cover as you engage the few men along the way. Send your team up and flank the enemy from the left as you approach the next room. Take the stairs and stack up on the red door. Snake it and tag at least one of the guys then send them in. Now go down the stairs alone with silencers on. You will see an opening to the right with a guy standing on the ground. Kill him, then go to the opening and kill the other two down there. Go where they were standing and send your team to the crate by the red door as some guys fire from way down the room. There is a something opposite the red door, not good for cover but it has a space between it and the wall. You should be able to look through this space to kill a few enemies. Then mop up whoever remains. Take the red door, but be ready for the bad guys in the next room; tossing in a frag may help, then handle the rest. Go through the door on the right and use the fast rope to end this mission. Secret Labs ----------- Go forward and talk to a friend. Send your team to the left wall of the entry way to the next area; make sure they are not on the corner or they will get killed. There are a bunch of bad dudes with guns across the room. Two gunners in the booth and many more will spill out and try to flank you. You got to get in this room, and I say take cover behind the light blue van. You won't be safe from the left, as that is a popular place for bad guys to go to; just be ready to pop off the van and take your shot. There are two blue trucks to the right. You can't poke out and kill the gunners, but if you send your team behind the outmost truck, they will draw the fire and allow you enough time to get maybe both of them, but one is fine. From there it is the same poke and shoot as before (use your map). And send your team over there when it seems clear. There is another door in the back and it has three bad guys behind it. You can frag and clear, but just letting your team clear will work. Go into the next room and snake the door on the left. Set a tag on the guy by himself to the left, and then get the guy talking. Stack your team and then get to the door on the right. You will send in your team, you will open the door and kill the guy you couldn't see from the other door, and then you need to put your team on the corner of the wall so they can get the other guy in the room. Through the next door is yet another big fight. Put your team nearby and set them to infiltrate. Crouch, put on silencer, and go through the door alone. You should be able to kill the guy straight ahead, and then the next one through the left window. Go to the door if they haven't spotted you and snake it to scope your opposition. Yes, you won't be able to kill them all. Come back to the booth and try to get one more, but if they spot you don't worry, well, worry a bit. To your team on assault and put them in the booth while you go to the door and anticipate a fool rushing in. From the doorway you should be able to get the guys to the right, in front of the booth. Then it becomes the same routine and you trying to spot loose tangos. One will be up high and another may be on the docks to the left. Send in your team to lead the way. Snake the red door and find the patrolling guard to tag first, then get the other one nearby. Send in your team when the moving target gets next to the door. Quickly send your team to the boxes near the door for cover. You set up shop on the wall by the left door. You got to use your thermals and map to locate terrorists in this room. I got lucky and these guys torched themselves with a few incendiaries. You should be safe from fire, and your team can take a burn, or they will simply move (be sure to put them back where you got them). Again, when things are quiet, send in your team to act as decoys. There are usually a few on the left, under the stairs. The big hole in the wall has two guys waiting on the other side, to the right of it; either send in your decoys, or toss in a frag, or whatever. Enter the labs. The path is in the room in the right corner. Go through the metal detector and the door beyond. Look through one of the doors and locate one moving enemy and another at the top of the stairs. Make the moving target the first priority, and the other as second. Wait for the big red target to get near the other and send your team in. My guys could handle all the tangos below from that position as I went through the other door up here. But going down the stairs may work too, but I doubt it. From up top you can spot all the bad guys and move around the top to locate them. Put your team at the foot of the stairs as you mop up (the last ones are hiding in the corner to the right). Follow the hall in the back. The next section is a maze of cubicles. Hug the wall and take the small cover to the left of the door. They should spot you and start taking shots at you. Get the couple of guys that poke out from the path in the left corner, and bring your team to the wall nearby in the same little pathway. You can set them near the window in the wall and they should get a few guys; be sure to check the map for flankers. Then move them into the center of it all to hunt down any survivors. If you are sneaky enough, you can go to the back of the area and get the last two guys in a small room, if they haven't already come out. Follow the path cautiously as a guy or two may yet live. Check the map and find the path that has only one route. There will be a room adjacent to a long hall, and a red door in this room. Stack on this door quickly, snake it, tag two guys, and then send them in to clear out the four terrorists holding the prizes. Go up the stairs. Go through the next door and don't worry, the bad guys can't see you through the openings in the doors for reasons unknown. Stack on the double doors to the left and snake it. Tag the guy way to the left and another in front of the door. Silencers on, you can just look through the other door on the right and spot a lone bad guy. Open the door and kill him quickly without alerting the others. Can't get the others through the windows without being seen. Send in your team, and you should watch the other door in your room for a flanker to come through. My guys were able to clear the room on their own, but feel free to go through the door and help out. Take the door on the left side of the room, go down a hallway, and pass through the door. Snake both doors to find three guys in two different rooms. Stack on the door on the left and tag the guy in front of the door plus the guy to the right, up high. The door on the right has one guy you should be able to kill silently, but the door opens toward you so you have to be a bit away to open it without making a fuss. Send your team in and then open the door in this room to join the fray. There will be two more guys in the room, so eyes open. And when you go up the stairs, be ready for a few more from all sides. The room with the target location will have one guy that is tricky to kill, I say just rush your team to his spot. Or, you can send your team in from one side as you go around from the other. In this hallway you will find two doors on the left. The far, red door has just one guy for you to kill silently. Send your team to the door in this room, and then snake the door to see a guy nearby. Now, go back to the hallway, run along, crouch and go along the walkway at the end, hugging the wall to reach the other side with the stairs. Go down the dark stairs and snake the door. Put on your thermals and wait for one guy to get close. Tag him, but this tag is for you to know when he is in front of the door. The plan is for you to send in your people from one side, and then you open your door when the guy is close to get an easy kill. Then you should take cover by the door to finish off whoever is left. You can run into the lighted room from this dark one and kill the two guys, but I say go back up the steps, hug the wall, and peer over the edge so that you can get a read on the two guys down and away; hard to explain, but it's just two guys. There are two points of entry into this room: the right door will put whoever goes through in harms way, and the left point will be the flanking position. I say just bring your team in from the left and put them behind the big crate for cover as you all battle it out with the tangos. Ignore the ammo crate until you win. *Another frustrating fight upcoming. And don't go up the stairs yet.* Get the SCAR and the MK46 (light machine gun) and some smoke grenades from the crate in the previous room; you need the smoke grenades, or else you can just start the game over, or whatever. Bring your team to the area with the computer. I know I haven't been fond of the smoke grenades through the whole game, but this is the first time when they were the only answer. As soon as you put Jung on the computer, put Michael on the other open spot on the computer. You will also toss a smoke grenade in toward the box in front of the console and put on your thermals. Now they can't see you (at least they didn't fire at me) and you only need to keep the smoke up as you stand in the middle of it and pick each bad guy off as they drop in. This smoke made it way easy, so I hope it works for you too. Get ready to go up the stairs and kill two more dudes. Go around the walkway until you reach a blast door and just wait for your team. Head in and go around the corner. Send your team to the big wall for cover, and then you got a couple of cover points. If you made it this far I'm sure you know the routine by now, so I'll let you fill in the blanks (send in the team when it seems clear). Go up the stairs and round the corner and out-gun Irena to put her down. Enter the elevator to end this mission. Countdown --------- I say keep the gun with the big clip, but stock up on ammo. You are going to go up the stairs and kill two guys. Outside will be run and gun, but I don't think you are actually timed. Just get to cover and take out all the bad guys before you blow up the missile in spectacular fashion. Then follow the road for the big tweest! Go toward the chopper, but don't kill the first person you see, that will be a friendly. Shoot at the guys shooting at you. Then go behind the van for a very exciting conversation. Dam to the ending, oh well. Here's to Rainbow Six Miami and Rainbow Six New York. *ALTERNATE ENDING ALERT: I found out about this much later, but you can shoot the fleeing helicopter and get a slightly alternate ending. The outcome is no different, but the words are changed a bit. As I hear, you see, I still don't have the game. You can check Wikipedia for more info on that.* That was fun, can't wait for GRAW 2. Happy hunting. Go play Terrorist Hunt, that is kinda fun. ***************************************************************************** * Frequently Asked Questions FAQ * ***************************************************************************** Just two for now, they come up quite a bit. Question: I can't get past the Irena part in the labs, will you come to my rescue sweet knight of the video game realm? Answer: Yes, and stop asking. Darn, I hate this little part of the game. I will tell you what I did: I hacked the computer, used the smoke to kill all the guys, my team started talking, I killed two guys as I went up the steps, I waited at the blast door, it opened, my team joined me, we went inside, had a big gun fight, and then we killed the b*$#h. I think you are not waiting for the conversation between teammates to take place, once that happens you are free, and it will only happen if all the enemies are dead so check the area. Question: I did the computer hack at the theatre, but the door won't open, can you toss me a bone brotha? Answer: You are possibly screwed. My askers did not report back to me, but I believe they restarted the game. Do not go backwards in the level after you hack and defend, or else the game's scripting will mess up. Hack the computer and go up the ladder is what I did. Oh yes, here is a quick add from a reader (Jason Prosser): qball8600 says that riotshields can be picked up and used with a pistol. I am not sure where the riot shields are (please, I don't need to know) but I trust him. He also says that the UMP45 and MP9 are the best submachineguns. Please, no more info like this. This is probably the only person that gets into this guide. ***************************************************************************** * 5.

I'm Brad Russell, you can reach me at: email@example.com (dam spammers! stay away!) Please put R6V in the title so I know it's not spam. Not sure if I can help with any questions concerning the game, as I don't own it as of the date on this version. I might get it later, but don't count on it. Go ahead and ask what you please, but just know I might not have an answer (consider the forums on the site that hosts this guide). Compliments are welcome and encouraged, and if you just want to talk then type away. I have other guides floating around the net too: Resident Evil 4, Gears of War, Dead Rising, and Lost Planet. Good games all of them. And I should warn you, I won't update them any time soon. Also, I hate achievements. Don't ask about them unless someone has a gun to your head. Plus, I can't do anything about them without the game. Go find your answers elsewhere. Same with online, don't ask. Geez, I sound like an old man, mad at everyone. I just don't have the game, what will I do! COPYRIGHT ********* This guide may not be reproduced under any circumstances except for personal, private use.
