When you start shot the guard while he is not looking and then engage him. But don't engage until the other guard has been killed. If you do you will fail the mission. You can also kill them both at once if you wait until they cross paths. Use the rifle to kill them at one time.
When To Be Quiet And When To Be Loud
When you are being debriefed on the mission look at the map to see what you have to do you'll either need a sniper or a loud weapon.

Hint: Mission 2
At the beginning, tell your men to hold their position and go to the right, up the hill. Stay to the left side of the hill while ascending it. You ill see an enemy fairly soon in the mission. uietly and carefully snipe him. There will be another one very shortly after the one you just killed. Continue on the cliff and you will reach a
drop off to another cliff. Jump down. Walk slowly to the edge or close to it until you can see the small cabin. Snipe the man standing outside quickly with one or two shots. Then, tell your men to regroup after you jump down from the cliff and go to the cabin. There will be one or two men inside -- kill them quickly. Keep moving north -- that is where all the action is located.
Objective 1: You will find the Intel in the big place with the bridge-type object on the third floor. It is in the laptop.
Objective 2: The weapon caches are the boxes stacked on top of each other. Put C4 on those and that will do the job.
Objective 3: As one of the secondary objectives, blow up the generator with C4 as well.
To make an enemy surrender easier, throw a flash-bang grenade at the enemy, and wait for them to surrender. Most of the time they will because they can't see you, but it doesn't always work.
Stealth Kill Tip
When ever you need to kill silently, go prone,
and sneak behind an enemy. You can sometimes do
this from the side of an enemy too.
Bonus Manifesto In The First Level
In the first level "death at sea", When you have to plant the satchels, DON'T PLANT THE SATCHEL! Go to the room where you need to plant the satchel (after killing the guards) and look around. You'll notice a door behind the satchel sites. Go in, and climb on all the crates. One of them has a book called the "IRON MANIFESTO". Grab it, and it's yours!
Have you ever picked up an enemy's gun, and
went up to an ammo box and read what it says in
the corner? If you pick up an AK-47 ammo box and
look in the corner, you'll see that it says
M16A2, instead of AK-47. If you use an M16A2,
you'll see that the AK-47, and the M16A2 have the

Ladder Glitch (only On Levels With Ladders, Works Online!)
The ladder glitch is somewhat simple (but must be done
perfect). First get your SEAL or terrorist into the standing
position. Then climb up the ladder, then slide down the
ladder. immediatly when you reach the ground turn 180
degrees around. You should notice even though your back
is to the ladder the "Climb" still appears, press X and your
character will climb into the ground. This cheat works
Secret "Lag" spots (Online Of Course)
In Bitter jungle, lay in the grass by the tree by the cave entrance near the seal stating place. If you lay in there you will be invisible!!
In the second to last round where you have to
defuse the nukes, wait in the bushes at the
beginning. Almost all enemies will appear and run
towards you. Then, go up the stairs. If you wait
outside, one to three enemies will run at you.
Run through the entrance. Make sure there are no
enemies on the left immediately as you walk in,
in a little notch in the wall on the right and
behind a table directly in front of you. You will
go to the entrance to another room. Wait outside
and point a gun at the little doorway. About five
enemies will run out. They are easy to kill. You
can either go through that door to reach the cave
complex or go straight ahead. There are many
enemies in front. If you run in and quickly run
out and go to the prone position, you can kill up
to ten or so enemies very easily. You may want to
do this because you will have to face them on the
way back to the extradition point. If you go
through the first choice, you will pass a
generator and go through a small cave out into
the open. Be careful -- a sniper is up on a
little hill to the right. Kill him and wait a
couple seconds. Another enemy with a grenade
launcher will appear. Kill him quickly. Go
through the little passageway to a relatively
open area. You will find a little doorway -- you
must go through there. If you wait, the enemy
should come out, but that takes a bit of time. Go
in and there is one enemy to the left, two to the
right, and sometimes a sniper up the little
passageway to the right. When you are done with
this part, follow the map into the a set of small
rooms. Many enemies are hiding behind boxes and
will run at you quickly. An intermission
featuring the enemies saying how great they are
will start. You will go down that dark way and
see a large rock. Behind that is the doorway.
About six enemies are in there. Do not go in.
Instead, throw a few grenades and try to kill as
many as you can. If u go in too fast, they will
arm one of the nukes. This means you will have
one minute to get it defused. If it does get
armed, listen for a beeping sound. That is the
nuke you need to defuse. There are also two or
three enemies waiting in there. When you defuse
that nuke, run across and arm the other nuke. You
have about seven to eight minutes to get out. Be
careful as there will be enemies running at you.
The number varies, depending how many you killed
at the beginning. Be very careful when running
out of the complex the nukes are in. It does not
matter which way you go. You will end up at the
initial place at the beginning of the round.
There is one last enemy hiding. He shoots and
kills very fast. Turn on your nightvision to
locate and kill him. There should be no enemies
after that, and you can move to extradition.
You do not have to be stealthy during this
mission. Arm your fire team with M60s, a silenced
pistol, frags, and extra ammunition. When you
start, there are two Tangos around the rock. The
alarm may go off. If not, run to the beginning of
the bridge. Instead of taking the path under the
bridge, go to the end of the bridge. There will
be an enemy at the top of the front gate. Take
him out. There will now be a few more enemies in
the area. Kill them, then go to the entrance of
the compound. On the way there, take out the
guard towers. The alarm will be going off. Tell
Bravo to hold at the entrance -- do not let them
enter. Next, go set a sachet charge with Charlie
outside of the compound. When you set it, tell
Bravo to enter the compound, then you enter. Wait
a minute and take out all enemies. Make sure you
get them all. There are two with MGLs. Next,
disable the generater. There will be a sniper
tower next to you, Take it out. Next, there are
two buildings to the right of the tower. Follow
the wall of the last building. Clear out the
building. There are two Tangos on the first floor
and one to three on the second floor. Take the
map on a table on the second floor. Then, rescue
Mr. Pickle. Tell Bravo to frag and clear the
building. Then, tell them to wait outside of the
door so you do not run into any uninvited guests.
When you rescue him, tell Bravo to attack to
Foxtrot. Run out of the compound with Mr. Pickle
from the hole you made with the Satchel. Meet up
with Bravo Element. Tell them to follow you to
the extraction zone.
When you start, tell your men to hold there
positions. Walk straight ahead and you will see a
small path. Follow it and quietly sneak up behind
the enemy. You will get a choice to stab him.
Press Circle and he will die. Run back to the
other side, where you first started. Sneak up
into the weeds and prone down. You will see two
more guards walking. You can snipe them from
where you are located. Proceed forward quietly
and you will see two more guards you can snipe
without getting too close. Next, tell Bravo to
stealth to the little shack. Go thorough the
water and proceed up the hill. You will see a
small hill with a tree and bushes. Go up that
hill and prone down. You can now snipe the last
guard. Then, run to Charlie and go up the hill to
left where the wall is located. You will see
something like a hallway. Go through there
quietly and come around the corner. Walk up to
the guard and kill him with a knife. Proceed to
other side where you first came out and do the
same thing to other guard. Then, tell your team
to regroup and you can clear the area. Note: Two
guards are on the top of the wall -- be patient.
Kill Magnus The Torturer Easy
When you get to the fence with two POWs on the
other side you can shoot the all powerful Magnus
through the cracks in the fence.This is in
mission 7 or 8
POW Recue In Caves Mission 7 Or 8
After you save the two POW from Magnus you must
secure the caves. Send Bravo to point Whisky and
then go back to the bridge. once there just
follow the river and there will be another
entrance to the cave. Kill everyone from behind
and secure the pow. then because bravos at whisky
they kill everyone at the other exit where the
extraction point is.
Easy Shooting 2
On any level, with a high powered rifle/gun you
can shoot trough walls or ceelings to kill the
tangos. In close range it works even better, you
can even use a handgun. If you die and start the
level again, and you know where the tango that
killed you is (suposivly on another floor) shoot
up at the ceeling, and if your lucky you will
kill him, and if not that you will hit him, and
if not that, you will miss completely.
On Level 2 select either of the sniper rifles
They will be very good for shooting far away to
hit tangos. With the scope and the long distance
range, it will be very easy to succesfully kill
every bad guy in the level, also make your
secondary weapon a 9mm, it fires fast and it't
actually more acurate then the Mark. Use the 9mm
for close range.
Hush Hush "Glitches"
Throught the Socom US Navy Seals On-Line gaming,
there are some secrets, gliitches. A lot of
people try to keep it hush hush. But I personaly
think everyone should knoe about them. For
example in Blizard, inside the terrorist's bacs,
on the second floor, you lay a claymore in buy
corner of the explosives, buy the door. Then run
parallel with the door into the bombs then you
will appiar ontop of them. Then turn right and
jump. Congrads. Your on the roof.
Kahuna:M-16A2-M203 or M-4-M203
Kahuna:M-4-M203 or M-16-M203
Spectre:M-82A1A or SR-25
(Hint: Always give all of your men Double Ammo!!)
Kick Open Doors
First of all, if you are outside, make sure the
door opens to the inside. If you are inside, make
sure the door opens to the outside. Hold up+X
while running towards the door and release the X
button just as you reach the door and you will
kick the door in, catching whoever is inside by
surprise. Jester and Specter will do this every
once in a while if you order them to breech a
Rifle Butt Combo
On level 10 ... Prison Break... when you start
you can just run around the rock and hit both of
the guards with your rifle before they even get a
shot off, saving ammo and time while keeping
Level 10 Hint
Arm yourself with the M4A1-M203 and either the
corresponding HE or Frag grenades for it. At
the start, tell Bravo to Hold Position and then
Able to Hold Fire. Next, CROUCH straight back
from your exact starting position until you are
on the small dirt road. Now, sidestep until the
two men on the other side of the boulder are in
plain sight. Get in PRONE position, select
either Frag or HE grenades, and shoot one right
at the chest of the Sadikahu Tango on the
RIGHT. If you do not shoot the one on the
RIGHT, and instead shoot the one on the LEFT,
the RIGHT one will be left standing--not so if
you shoot at the RIGHT one. This will
eliminate/incapacitate both of them.
Easily Locate Enemies
Having trouble finding enemies on those missions
with limited visibility??? Well there is an easy
way to locate them. First, go to the third person
view (so you can see your SEAL). Then just point
him in any direction and watch his gun, if he
raises it, it means there is a tango in that
general direction!! Hope I helped...
Note: If you zoom out after looking through your
scope, he will have his gun raised, it doesn't
mean there is a tango.
Choosing Your Weapons
This tip should help you choose the weapons you
need, the type of gun you should use is a gun
with good accuracy, range, and low volume. Now
once you have chosen your gun go to equipment if
you choose a grenade, you should choose the HE
grenade, then choose your non-lethal grenade you
can choose the smoke or the bang either one will
do, after you chosen your non-lethal grenade you
should choose the the extra ammo, this will
double the amount of ammo for your weapon.
Kill Several Birds With One High Powered Rifle Bullet
Sniper bullets go through the target. That means
it goes through people. So if somebody is
standing in front of somebody else... lets say
for example, a terrorist or mercanry, you could
shoot through one and kill the other. I've killed
three "Mercs" with one shot before on the POW
mission on Lt. Junior Grade so I guess the bullet
can just go through an infinite amount of people.
Easily Get By Snipers
Whenever ther is a sniper who is firing at you,
just keep moving and even if he does hit you...
it won't hurt you for some reason. You hear the
bullet tearing through skin, but it doesn't hurt
you. I don't know if it is like this on any
difficulty higher than Lt. Junior Grade.
POW Mission Secondary Hint
No matter what difficulty you are on, this hint
goes for them all. On the POW mission, the only
secondary objective you have is to spot the
enemy's sentry. This will be a good idea because
if he sees you, he lets everybody know where you
are. So, if you are stuck on LT. Junior Grade on
this level like me, then this will be your key to
success. Tell your team to hold their fire as you
are entering "area one". Walk forward until you
can see the "Lookout point"... big mountain hill
thingy. (says lookout point on the map). Pull
ouit your binoculars or sniper scope or whatever
and look up at the sentry to complete the
objective. Don't let him see you though. Then
tell your team to fire at will and watch the
sentry get peppered with bullets. If you have
made any noise throughout the level so far, be
expecting an ambush by two guards coming from a
passage on the left hand side between a big rock
and the side of a hill.
Cover Area Problems
Ever done this: "Bravo cover area"...."not today
sir"...? well for those of you who have't figured
this out, the problem is that when you order
bravo to cover an area they can't see, they can't
do it. For example, your whole team is on one
side of a hill, you want bravo to cover the area
on the other side of the hill, so you point the
crosshairs at the area and give the order, bravo
will give "negative" for an answer in some way
because they can't see the other side of the
hill. So get bravo to the top of the hill and try
it again and it will work. Also, both specter and
jester need to see the area if you want both of
them to cover it.
Calm Sniper Hint
It's very annoying when you are trying to pick
somebody off with a sniper rifle and the guy's
hand is shaking which causes the rifle to move.
So, to get rid of the motion, get into the prone
position and leave the control stick alone for
about 10 seconds or so. After a few seconds the
rifle will stop moving and you can very slowly
move the control stick to aim without it shaking
anymore. If you move the stick fast, the shaking
will come back and it's intensity depends on how
much you move the control stick and how fast.
Tick Boomer Off
On any stage at anytime when there are enemies
present, make sure boomer is near you activate
your headset and say "Demons! Demons! Demons!"
whole bunch of times and boomer will go mad and
jump up and pull a rambo on all of the enemies in
Once you get to the Ambassador's wife after clearing
the Temple have your team follow you in to restrain her.
Once she get's back up tell her to "Follow," then quickly
tell her to "Hold Position." Tell your team to cover the
door and point your crosshairs there as well. The
terrorists will come to you, so just kill the four of them
and extract the wife. This way your team does not get
killed if you have them outside covering the area.
When you have Mr.Pickle (codename), get his map and hold up in the objective building, where you secure him . Do not try and run from the hellye.Go up stairs and shoot out the open upstairs door, until you see smoke! Then when running to Foxtrot don't get to close, there is one more objective that you can't run up on.
If you have 10/30 bullets left in your gun and 5
mags drop the gun. Then pick it back up again and
you will have 30/30 with 5 mags.
Just Some Tips
If you want to have a oerfectly executed
mission, command the bravo element to secure one
area while you and boomer in the able element
secure another. Try to remain in stealth and not
reveal yourself unless it is necessary. If you
are in the rpone position, an enemy will almost
step on you before he sees you. If you are unsure
about an area, point the crosshairs in that
direction and tell the team to lead you there.
Just remember that if you are unsure about an
area, room, or passage, send the bravo team in as
the first to be where the "metal meets the meat".
When you are under fire from an enemy, strafe
from side to side like in all shooter games and
the enemy will miss you more than he will hit you
if he hits at all. Also, if you ever see an
opportunity for a stealth kill, take it. It saves
ammo and is completely silent. Just walk right up
behind the enemy and press X to either stab them
in the chest from behind, or smack them in the
head with the butt of your gun.
Easier Way To Defuse Bombs
To get this done very quickly, just tell bravo to
defuse one bomb while you go take care of the
other two. Kill the terrorist leader in building
C if you feel pressed for time but you should be
done with plenty of time left to spare. Rescue
the hostages and there ya go.
Unlimited M79 (grenades)
After you throw a grenade press L2, to choose
secondary weapon, and the grenade will not be
lost. You can check by looking in your weapon
supplie or preesing R2. P.S. it wont work unless you have 6/6 grenades
Simple Stealth Kills
If you are low on ammo, or just fill like bashing
somebody's skull in, we all know to use the rifle
butt attack when close to the enemy. But the
enemy probably doesn't really want you to do that
so they are gonna turn around and shoot if you
start runnning instead creeping very slowly.
Well, it doesn't matter. You can keep running a
little to the side of them while they are
shooting and they will miss you most of the time.
Just keep strafing towards them and you can smack
them with your rifle. You have to creep up behind
them to use the knife and it won't work if they
turn around enough.
