Check the contents section if you are browsing this guide for specific information. ===================== WALKTHROUGH  ===================== ================= >Mission 1 Why we fight ================= Explore the room when you have control of your character. Don't get too attached to your humble abode, for you'll be met with some unfriendly characters pretty soon. After the heavy scene, grab the pistol and follow your new friend.Head through the first set of rooms and aim down the sights of your gun and fire to take out the enemies. Grab a stronger gun as you move through, and shoot the enemies coming down the sky line. Run along with your allies.Take cover behind the broken vehicles and fire, bursting the trigger to take on distanced enemies. Grab any other guns you see on the ground if you wish to get a feel for them. Chances are, you're going to be using it more later on. Throw a grenade when you're asked by your comrades. Keep your head down behind cover,and don't stay exposed for long, or you'll be taken out quickly. Head on with your new teammates as you hear Connor speak about the pilot and gas station. As he states, you're on your way to Revere Road. Head on towards the objective marker and press B/ to go prone to make it through the little crawl space. Take cover when the tank comes through. You can't be spotted. Stay still and sprint straight across the street after your buddy's mark. Head through the house as you hear the two behind you bantering.There is a document on the stairs leading upstairs if you'll like to read it. From there head up the tree house and climb up. The soldiers will be aware of your position. Scope your rifle and take your time picking off the enemies. Head into cover if you start taking damage, and eventually your place of sanctity will be blown up. Back on the ground, head towards cover towards your buddies and toss a grenade in the direction of the enemy to clear out a good many. It's easy to take a lot of damage here if you don't stick to cover for long.If you feel yourself unable to head on to due to the enemy numbers, lob a grenade and head forth towards cover. There should be M4 rifles dropped by the enemy in the area that you can switch your primary fire arm for if you wish to try your hand at a different weapon. As you make your approach forward be sure to look out for enemies that stand on the roofs and shoot you from an elevated distance. Move on, crouching and firing at the enemy while taking cover behind the objects in the area. Head on though the area and search around for enemies. Head on towards the objective marker and you should see some C4 that you can grab and toss at the nearby APC. A couple of C4s should be good enough to blow it up. Now you'll have to head to the civilian neighborhood. Follow the target and head through the house door. There's another document on the ground right after you enter. Keep going and you'll eventually meet up with Boone. Soon after your heartwarming reunion, you'll have hostile forces shooting up the place and will be forced to flee and take cover in the building. There should be a pistol on the ground that you can pick up if you're running out of ammo. Oh, also there's a baby. Head towards the windows facing the enemies and take your time taking them out. You'll have to draw fire away from the civilians. What better way of doing this than killing the enemy? Some may eventually enter the building so keep your eyes out and listen for the audio cues. It's a good thing, them moving towards the house because you're sure to run out of ammo quick. Pick ammo up from the dead enemies, but rush back to cover soon after. When you're given the prompt, follow Boone. You'll get into another building with a downed individual. Grab the Goliath locater and aim for the enemy forces. The red diamonds signify the enemies. You should either aim for large groups or enemy vehicles. Individual enemies can simply be shot. Soon after, as you're picking off the straggling enemies, you'll be blinded by light. Don't worry, it's supposed to happen. ================= >Mission 2 Freedom ================= A familiar face. Look around the area at your leisure. Head out and meet up with Boone when you're ready. Follow him around. Back by the lady with the child you helped, there's a document in the nearby room. Head out and speak with the residents if you wish. When you're done, or should you wish to just get down to business, head over to Boone. Grab an assault rifle, and head down the ladder. Follow Boone as indicated. When Boone heads on, wait for the spotlight to move past, then rush towards the cover he's behind. Proceed in that fashion towards the objective. Lob a grenade at the machine and you should be golden. Indoors, head towards the windows and train your sights on the enemies' heads. Fire and take cover when they retaliate. Keep your distance and take them out. Burst firing helps for the enemies that are fairly far away. You'll also save ammo that way. Be sure to grab ammo from the enemies when you pass over them. Move through the house, and take on any enemies with your guys. Follow your buddies. Head towards Rianna. After you split up with Boone, head on and you'll come to a room with a bunch of assault rifles. After you're done smiling, grab one that suits your fancy. It's recommended that you use one with a mid to long range scope or a suppressor. You should be able to take on a couple of enemies unnoticed with a silencer on your weapon. When they finally do notice you though, head towards cover and survey the distance for any hidden gunners. Make use of your grenades and slowly inch your way towards large groups of enemies. Run from cover to cover, limiting your exposure to wide open terrain. Head through the room and you should spot a window that overlooks one of the search towers. Toss a grenade towards the red light to take it out. Next, follow Connor to the supply tunnel. You'll be left with just your side arm. Near the civilian named El Rey is another document. Follow Arnie when you're done exploring. Oh Arnie...why?! When you get control of your character, fire your pistol at the oncoming enemies, then head to cover. Grab an assault rifle, then make your way through. There will be heavy resistance, so take your time and take cover when you're taking one too many hits. Grab the beacons and follow your comrades. There should be a document on the street. After Connor goes into rage mode, head through to the side and take out any enemies from a distance. You should be able to pop a few of them before you start running. Take cover when necessary. Carefully inch your ways towards the sentry towers and blow them up with your grenades. Head into the pile of dead bodies when the enemy is near. Good luck... ================= >Mission 3 Fire Sale ================= Follow Rianna. By the handicapped parking icons should be another document. Move on through the quiet night as you meet up with other members of the resistance. Head on and up the stairs. After the round of phosphorus, start picking off enemies behind cover and up and about with your sniper rifle. Take your time and aim for the head. There's no rush so take cover and take your time. Follow Rianna when you lose your footing. Eliminate the hostile on the roof with your sniper rifle when you've got Goliath cover, then switch to your assault rifle and take on the enemies. You'll have the Goliath available to target enemies. You'll also have to constantly look towards the higher ground for the EMP guys. Take them out with your sniper rifle. Use Goliath on the Humvee. When the enemies fall back, head towards the objective target to regroup. Target the oncoming helicopter with Goliath. Target the vehicles and shoot the foot soldiers with your regular weapons. Shoot the enemies by the Hooters. Don't worry there isn't anything that will distract you from the enemies pouring your way. There's going to be a lot of KPA in the fuel building so you'll have to really stick to cover. Aim for the explosive barrels and toss grenades at the clumped up enemies if you wish to survive. Find a good spot to take cover and be sure to burst fire your weapons because it's easy to run out of ammo quickly. When you eventually do though, take note of where you've felled your enemies and run over to them when the coast is clear to grab the weapon they've dropped. Slowly inch your way around the area from cover to cover, searching for enemies, and looking above ground for any enemies on a higher ledge. Don't peek your head up for too long. Don't get caught in the flames of the explosion as you move through the area. Sticking primarily with your teammates is also a viable option. If you manage to grab hold of a sniper rifle, you should be able to take out the few hard so shoot enemies that may be hiding behind pieces of terrain. After you follow your buddies towards the end of the facility, a helicopter will be coming down with more enemies. A good strategy is to wait for them to hit the ground, then toss your grenade to get them at once. You can also pick them off as they're coming down. Don't run out just yet, because more will come towards you. A shotgun does well at clearing the enemies out when they're near you. If you take your time, you can also tackle mid range enemies. This may not be as effective as an assault rifle, but it saves some more ammo. Again, continue through the path running from cover to cover, and slowly creeping towards the edges of the object you're hiding behind to pop off enemies and hide back. If you choose not to stick religiously with your teammates, you notice that if they get the enemy's attention, you can use the opportunity to flank them and also see where they're coming from. Follow Connor up a ledge and take out the waiting enemies. You'll be given a briefing of what to do next near a closed door. Once the door is banged open, make a rush towards the objective marker taking out the enemies along your path. They shouldn't be in large groups, so just keep running and shoot when you notice them. Take cover if they notice you and get a couple clean shots into you though. Chase after the truck then plant the tracking device. You'll now have to regroup. Find some cover spots as you do, though for enemies will be waiting. When you make it back to Connor and Rianna, head through the next door and deal with the initial enemies. Follow Connor and take the enemies that come your way out. Avoid the flames in the area, and always run taking note of cover spots in case you get ambushed. Head up the stairs and eventually outside on the rooftop. You'll now have to provide cover fire, taking out any enemies. Head off the roof as you're asked and get into the truck. Use the target locater to make sure you make a clean get away. ================= >Mission 4 The Wall ================= Watch the scene...*sniff* no, I didn't cry! *sniff* and follow Conner. The fight will eventually be taken to you, and you'll have to take on some enemies. Try to take the RPG guys and other enemies that are usually on higher floors. Take cover behind the houses, but try not to get too close to the enemies. Use Goliath to take out the armor. The RPG enemies will try to destroy Goliath, so they're a top priority. If you can get your hands on a LMG, do so because you won't be pressed to reload as often when taking out the enemies. When you get to the blockade with the tank, try sniping the enemies, aiming for headshots and taking your time. Follow your friends through the house when the tank comes. Now you'll have to follow Rianna. Flank the tank and target it with Goliath. Press on with your comrades. When you meet up with some resistance members, head on with Jacob, taking out the enemies hiding in buildings as you make your way to the objective marker. Move through, and if you're running low on ammo, grab the enemy's rather than wait for the ammo to be completely dispensed; you can't afford to waste too much time exposed. If you're away from cover but are taking hits from above, go prone and wait till you can regain your health before running off. Break open the door as Connor commands, and spray the enemies while you can. Take out the RPGs, and take on any oncoming enemies. You're making progress, you can't quit now! Activate the console to lower the barricade when the enemies aren't as many. Follow your buddies and grab the RPG. Take your time and fire on the target. Head into the Humvee to make your escape. Fire on the enemies as your pour through. ================= >Mission 5 Heartland ================= After the traitorous change of plans, rush towards the right and get some cover. Use your gun to take on the enemies. It may be hard so see all of the enemies, so take your time. When the final enemy goes down, head on. Follow your buddies and hide when they hide. Head on towards Boon and you'll have to take out a sniper on the windmill. Zoom, take your time, and aim for the head. Follow and hold when instructed. Take out the RPG guy in the tower, then head into the garage. Take out the sentry by the window when instructed. Do so quickly. Take out the other sentry on the second floor when you pass. Head through and stab the unsuspecting foe. Take out the other RPG and run through. Now you won't need to be quiet anymore. Switch you your other weapon and start taking on the enemy. There's heavy opposition, so take cover. It's best to only move up when your squad does, or when you're sure the coast is clear. Head towards the downed enemies to pick up their guns if you run out. When you've take out the batch of enemies, follow your comrades along. When you're by the barricade, crouch down behind the cover and take out any enemies you see, whether they are focused on your or not. Slowly make your way through, using whatever's around you as cover. Burst fire for the more distanced enemies to save some ammo. Rush through when the area's clear. Stay somewhat close to your comrades and don't stick your head out for too long. Your buddies will either divert the attention of the foes, or take them out altogether. Take out the RPG enemy with your sniper once the crowd of enemies have gone down. Make a long rush towards your ticket outta there. Head over now to enter the church. There will be enemies on the way there, so be careful. Once in the church, head to the tower. Again, it won't be an uneventful trek there; you've still have to be careful and take out the enemies in the area. When at the top, take your time and take out the designated targets. Be careful and aim for the head or at least upper body. Don't shoot unless instructed. Take out the enemies as the truck heads through the barricade. Keeping an eye out for cover and enemies, head over to the objective marker. Rendezvous with your men...and woman and GET TO THE CHOPPA! ================= >Mission 6 Overwatch ================= Now that's more like it! You'll pilot a chopper now. Press the stick in any direction to move around, and LT/L2 to fire the ship's rockets. Fire at the APCs, and use your rockets to decimate the groups. If you're having trouble spotting the enemy, use the thermal vision. Head through the tunnel you'll come across. Take out the escort vehicles, and make a rush towards the convoys. Destroy the targets and when prompted, move close to one of the tankers, allowing your comrade to hijack it. Then head to the next to drop off Rianna. Take Connor to the final tanker. When the missiles start coming at you, activate the missile defeat as you maneuver your way away. Fire at the turrets and show them YOUR missiles. Cover your friends by taking out the enemies and RPGs. Strafe around in the chopper to evade the oncoming missiles, and fire your rockets at any ground units you can spot. Take out the RPGs as soon as they're in sight, because they can do a lot of damage. Take out the SAM turrets as you come close to the harbor. Connor's vehicle will breakdown on the bridge. While your partners are sitting ducks, rotate around above them and survey the area for threats. Take them on swiftly. Your allies blowing up the bridge signifies your success at the mission. ================= >Mission 7 Golden Gate ================= Board the helicopter. When you get near the iconic bridge, use the grenade launcher on your rifle to take out the RPG and infantry enemies. When you touch ground, head straight for cover. Peek out and pick off any enemies you can with your scoped rifle. Toss a grenade into any small group of enemy to either get them to flee so that you can move up, or take them out. After the initial group of enemies have been dispatched, move on with the squad through to the road block. Take cover and pick off any untouched enemies and head on with your mates. In the building, grab the RPG and aim for the tanks. You'll then have to follow Connor. There will be a small stash of sweet rifles that you can pick up. Though a scoped weapon is recommended, select whichever suits your fancy. Head up the scaffolding and take on the enemies that are waiting for you. Move on through and keep your gun ready, for the enemies won't stop coming. Keep moving, for your ultimate goal is to make it to the deck of the bridge. While there, you should be able to take on the enemies; most of them have their attention elsewhere, leading to some easy headshots. As you move through to the next set of objective markers, you'll have a lot of opposition waiting for you. There will be numerous buses and other vehicles that you can take cover from. Do so and carefully eliminate the enemy. Don't you wish you had Goliath at a time like this? No worry, the enemy shouldn't be able to bum rush you, so you should be able to make it through if you take your time and take cover. Get you bearings after falling off the side of the bridge, and take on the enemies. Nope, they won't cut you a break for almost dying. You'll eventually have to move through the narrow bridge beams to get to your destination. It's a long drop down, so be careful. Head up the ladder at the end and destroy the sentries. Before heading towards the other sentry, take cover and eliminate the enemies surrounding it. Then head to the next sentry and take that one out. Grab the nearby rocket, and target the heli. Now that your teammates know you're okay, you'll be tasked with regrouping with them. Stick behind cover before the gates are opened. Then very carefully take out the enemies in the area. Pop out of cover for a short time just to see where the enemy is, then head back out to take them out. Sticking your head out for too long over here is suicide. Move through when the enemy numbers become more manageable, but nonetheless stick to cover. You'll eventually have to keep enemy forces off of Hopper while he does what he does best. Take your time here, the enemy have the vertical advantage here. Take the right path and take the enemies on from there. Call the UCAV when you're given the option, then take on the enemy forces in their vehicles. Once you're done head into the Humvee. Now as the gunner, take out the other Humvee and any other enemies that come your way. Take the vehicle out by the gate, then target the other jeep that takes pursuit. It's gonna take a lot of rounds to take out. Keep your guns trained on him. ================= >Multiplayer Primer  ================= Let's get into the finer points of the multiplayer of Homefront. As you do battle on the battlefield, you will earn BP. BP is short for Battle Points. These points can be spent during a match by selecting the corresponding choice in the heads up display. The better you are as a player, the more points you'll have to accumulate. This is best complemented by using your BP to even out the aspects you would consider shortcomings. For instance, if you're a quick, competent shooter who can take enemies out from long and short range, you shouldn't have a problem in most firefights,but you may have a weakness- say facing tanks and other heavy armor. Instead of spending your BP on something that may make the enemy a little easier to spot or kill, you may want to invest in rockets or vehicles of your own. If you're an okay player, but keep dying because the enemy saw you first, you might want to spend your BP on reconnaissance equipment etc. Even if you're not doing as well as you'd hope, you can just save more BP than you would otherwise so that you can purchase items to even the playing field. XP is what increases your rank. It can't be spent, but it does unlock features as you progress in rank. Here are the game modes in homefront: TeamDeathmatch Skirmish GroundControl Battle Commander TEAM DEATHMATCH:In Team Deathmatch, the objective is to kill players on the opposing team. The team with the most kills wins: Since each death you sustain equals a win for the opponent, you'll want to be careful here and not take as many deaths as you would sacrificing your body as in an objective mode. It's best to spend your BP here on vehicles and strikes that prioritize in doing heavy damage SKIRMISH: Mixed modes of Team Death Match and Ground Control. Select this mode for variety. GROUND CONTROL: You earn 250 BP for securing 1 of 3 points in the map. You're main goal however is to secure all three, or at least as many of the points as possible while your opponent tries to do the same. There will be a lot of shift in power in this game mode, unless you work as a team to suppress the enemy and secure more zones than them. More teammates on a point allow it to be secured faster, so it's best to communicate during this mode. BATTLE COMMANDER: This is a tweaked version of other modes where you are given different dynamic objectives which may involve eliminating targets (instigators) or drones etc. You will become a hunter by being ordered to eliminate instigators. To become an instigator, you will have to earn kill streaks and generally pose as a threat to the other team. Then there is a possibility there will be a bounty on your head. ================= >WEAPONS AND QUALITIES ================= ASSAULT RIFLES M4 Assault rifle Low recoil and high rate of firefights SCAR-L 3 round burst, unlocked at lv14 ACR Rifle Higher recoil than M4, but more damage.
