Single Player Walkthrough ========================================================= Darkness Falls ======================== Secure Crash Site ------------------------ When everything hits the fan you will get to watch your reporter buddy dragged off and then you are in control. Run into the wreckage of the helicopter and get onto the chaingun there. Start firing at the enemies in front of you and on the rooftops. All you are trying to do here is to survive until you secure the crash site, so watch the bar in the top right hand corner of the screen. ------------------------ Secure Armory / Destroy AA ------------------------ Alrighty, now to make an offensive push forward. You will need to take these two locations but you can do it in either order. Definitely do the Anti-Air first for one good reason, it nets you the rocket launcher which is a really awesome weapon, stronger than the mounted tank cannon even. Take note that the enemies seem to continually respawn until you take over the objective points although they slowly but steadily get worn down. So even if it's just one person coming out they will usually keep on coming. Pushing on through them is usually your only choice. Head up the left side, going towards that objective marker and keep to cover where you can find it. Use your zoom judiciously and learn that you don't fire straight down center, you fire a bit off to the right of perfect center. So if you zoom in compensate for that. Creep forward slowly until you find the group of enemies hiding behind the concrete barrier, toss a grenade or two over it to clear them out and give them a bad day. With them dead head up the stairs and pick up the rocket launcher here. Now go and place the explosives on the Anti-Air gun, run for your life and watch it blow sky high. Sweet. That's it for the this place, hop down off the roof and start heading to the objective to your right. See that jeep? Hit it with your rocket launcher and watch it blow up. Keep moving along this path, taking out the enemy as they come and you will soon come across a ladder, go on up. Take out any enemies up here, sometimes there is one and sometimes there isn't, before heading down the stairs here. Now move to your right and enter the computer room. Walk over to the computer and use the X button to hack it and take this objective. ------------------------ Capture the Motor Pool ------------------------ Make your way out of the building and you will be attacked by a light assault vehicle. Hide behind something, not in the doorway, and use the rocket launcher to take it out. The thing can only take two rockets before it's a goner. Now move onward towards the big facility here. As you approach you are going to all but be told what needs to be done here. You need to fly a drone into the control room and detonate it to destroy the panel keeping the doors closed. Easily done. Walk over to the drone and pick it up. Now crouch behind some cover and start flying the drone. Send it into the target window, you can go head on since they won't destroy it in time, and detonate it to kill a guard or two and blow the panel. Now rush inside and head to the right, using the big... things over here as cover. Stick with your soldiers and take out enemies until they have been thinned out a bit. Now move towards the building proper and look to your left, you should see a ladder. Climb on up it and immediately hack the computer right there. With that done start heading forward, taking your time, and use grenades liberally to clear the way. Once you reach the other end, definitely still guarded, take him out and then hack this computer to complete this part of the mission. ------------------------ Capture Refineries ------------------------ Time to use the vehicles... Not good. Don't celebrate too quickly, this thing controls horrendously but it will get the job done. Start with the left objective again since this is the easier of the two. You have a machine gun and rockets so this won't be too hard. Simply move around a lot, blow up the gun turrets with rockets and get ground troops with the machine gun. If you get too badly damaged hide for a bit and your vehicle will repair itself. When you come across enemy jeeps use a mixture of your gun and rockets to blow them up. Now move in on the objective, jump out of the jeep and crouch down. You should capture this no problem. Quickly grab the binoculars from nearby and hop into the jeep again. This will give you the ability for an airstrike for later on. Sweet. Head for your next objective, which will be the oil refinery. This part stinks because there's lots of guys with rocket launchers here. Your best bet is to move around a lot, fire off your rockets at the ground troops and thin them out enough where you won't die in a matter of seconds. Once you have killed enough of them move in further and you will find yourself dealing with two jeeps, blow them up and circle the area until you think you've gotten most of the troops. Hop out of your jeep and go to the objective. Pick up the rocket launcher here and seize the objective. Your last one is to your right but there's going to be a bunch of assault vehicles in your way. Use either the jeeps missiles or your rocket launcher to get rid of them and clear the area. Now hop out of the jeep again, climb up to the roof and seize this control point. ------------------------ Rescue the Reporter ------------------------ Time to rescue your reporter buddy. Unfortunately you will have to deal with the heavy armor that has come rolling up. This means tanks and enemies there. This isn't too bad if you have ammo for your rocket launcher, which you should, and the binoculars. Ride up close to them and then jump out of your vehicle. Take the binoculars in hand and aim at the tank. Now signal the air strike to come down on top of the tank and you should blow it up and some of the other defenders. Now you can start moving in. Keep your rocket launcher out, it comes in handy for blowing up hiding enemies and stick with your troops. Move in slowly and take out every last defender before heading inside. Once you are inside head down the hall and you will see the reporter tied up in a little cell. Rather than doing things the sane way use your explosives to blow down the door and somehow not kill the reporter. Some powerfully useful shaped charges I say. ======================== Captains of Industry ======================== Neutralize Defenders ------------------------ Hop out of your transport and start heading up the hill. When you reach the rocks start to hang to your right hand side. You will see some trucks up ahead, go use them for cover and start taking out the guys on the street. There's a number of them here so pop out, shoot them and then go rest behind cover. Keep on shooting them dead until the only thing left is the armored turret up on top of the bridge. Rush forward and crouch down until you have taken the objective. So long as you hide near the bridge the turret will not be able to hit you so you only need to worry about straggler soldiers making their way over to you. ------------------------ Capture the Ammo Depots ------------------------ Double back a bit and look to the left hand side of the screen, you should see a ladder here. Go climb on up and move forward quickly, watching your right hand side. You should see the turret from before except now you can see the guy who is manning it. Shoot him dead and then continue in the direction you were just moving in. You should be a little bit away from the ammo depot over here so take out the enemies as you head into it and capture the objective before you snatch up the rocket launcher here. Now quickly start heading to the left, through the alleys here, and you should see a couple of archways across from you when you reach the street. To your right will be a building with the next objective and a tank nearby to it. Don't waste your rockets, simply run across the street to the arches and start killing the enemies here since this is the next objective. Once the enemies are all taken out, take the objective and grab up the little anti-vehicle drone from the table here. Now crouch near the archways and send the AV drone out and drive it up and under the tank before detonating it to blow the tank up. Lean out and start sniping the enemies you see in the building, especially on the upper balcony before you run for the doorway. Now that you are inside of the building throw a grenade to the upper level and then go up after it explodes. Take out any stragglers and keep on making your way up to where the blueprints are located. Keep on throwing grenades at the enemies and seize the objective. ------------------------ Destroy the AA ------------------------ Head on out of the building and make your way to the next objective. Approach it from the south since approaching it from the front can be nearly suicidal if your allies don't try to help you. Proceed carefully and take out any enemies that you come across. Also throw a grenade up any stairwells before you climb on up them. You will scatter the enemies in the least. Get your way up to the roof and kill the enemies there before heading to the anti-air missiles. Set your explosives on the thing, run for your life and head on out the front door. Look around for an aerial drone and snatch that up. ------------------------ Capture the Rail Depot ------------------------ Some tanks are going to be dropped in at the next objective so head on over to that and wait for it. Now climb on into the tank and make your way to the bridge that is just a little bit ahead. Stop in the middle of it and get out, taking out the aerial drone and crouch down. Now send the drone out into the area with all the tanks and use the missiles it fires to take them out. Every so often stop using the drone, get into the tank and get out of it or it will return to where it was dropped. If your drone gets killed use the tank to get rid of the last of the tanks. Now finish rollinga cross the bridge and start making your way to the rail depot. A bunch of soldiers will be running around here and there is another tank up here. Use the tank, rolling in and out of attack range so you can self- repair whenever you're too hurt, and blow the lot of them sky high. Once they are all dead get out, pick up the rocket launcher and capture the objective. Some more enemies are going to come so either use the rocket launcher or get back into the tank. Take out the rest of the soldiers and the final remaining tank that comes across the other bridge to finish the level. ======================== Anvil ======================== Secure Guard Posts ------------------------ Now you are to be playing a sniper, sneaking around and shooting enemies. In theory anyways. In actuality that doesn't work at all so it's best to just get yourself set up behind some cover, crouching down or laying flat, and start headshotting the enemies in your path. You have a sniper rifle to help you play this section easier. There is also a shotgun but that is saved for close range combat and it will tear opponents apart when you hit them with it even if it isn't at point blank range. Stay back until you have taken out most of the enemies you can see and then start on your way down the hill. Scan the area for stragglers, take them out and then head to your left, for the objective there. From a distance snipe off the guards near the building and then get the gunner on the turret. Now move forward a bit until you can see the guard tower nearby, shoot the guard up in it right out. Take out your shotgun and run to the objective and seize it. Grab the drone from nearby and double back, heading around to the other objective. Hang back when you start to see enemies and start sniping them off. Don't move in until you can't see anybody else alive. Once they're all gone you can make your way in to capture the objective. ------------------------ Secure Comms Trailer ------------------------ Climb to the top of the hill and lay down, moving next to the cover. Look for the military trailer and start taking out the enemies. If you get hit, duck behind some cover to heal and then continue shooting them. Once they're all dead down there you can move in a bit but don't go too close. Look upward and you should see another guard tower, take out the sniper up there and then move in to take the objective. Grab up the flying drones from there as well. ------------------------ Secure Guard Post ------------------------ Start making your way towards the guard post taking the left path but stop a short distance away. Deploy one of your flying drones and send them into the guard post to start blowing away any enemies and then clear it out with your other weapons if necessary. Waltz on in and seize the objective once you've cleared the way. ------------------------ Destroy AA ------------------------ Now double back and take the far right most path, you should see a large stone tower there. Go that way and kill all of the nearby enemies. Clear out the whole tower, restock and then climb to the top. Look of towards the objective and you should see some people near the AA guns, start sniping. If you need a different vantage point, one of the windows can help or you might just have to go outside and use the sandbags for cover. Once you've thinned the herd as it were start to make your way in. What you want to do is try to creep up slowly in case of stragglers and if you find that there are too many alive, use a drone. Kill off the enemies here and then make sure that the two armored turrets have nobody using them. Go to the AA gun and set an explosive charge on it. Someone called for the cavalry? ------------------------ Capture the Motor Pool ------------------------ Look around for the sniper rifle as soon as this starts since you are given the typical assault rifle and grenade launcher loadout for this mission. Now start to make your way up the hill. There are a bunch of enemies here and if you do not have the sniper rifle it's going to be rough going. Use anything you can find as cover and slowly make you way in. Let your allies distract the enemies while you try to take them out. If you have the sniper rifle then lay down and crawl forward, staying close to cover. Snipe any enemies that you see until you're pretty sure you've gotten most of them and then rush forward. Take out your assault rifle and take out any stragglers before you claim the objective. ------------------------ Capture the HQ ------------------------ Immediately get on the Motor Pool turret and start taking out enemies. If you get too hurt duck down behind cover and heal before getting back to shooting at the enemies. Once you have taken out the enemies grab the rocket launcher and the rail gun deployable item from the table nearby. Hold onto that rail gun for dear life, you will need it for the later part of this mission. Take out the sniper rifle and start picking your way across the map. You want to sweep the area for any enemies, take them out and then proceed forward. Keep on doing this until you reach the enemy HQ, a large greenish building. Try to stay back with your allies and start sniping off the enemies that you can see before rushing the building. The grenade launcher is actually of use here since the areas are pretty small inside and the explosions will usually kill off any enemies in the area. Once you've gotten most of the enemies hop in one of the windows and go on up to the roof. Pick up the air strike binoculars up here and then seize the objective, you're gonna need those strikes now. ------------------------ Hold Down the Town ------------------------ Go down to the second floor of the HQ, near the blown out wall and set up the rail gun turret there. The turret on the roof is useful but it will get hit by a rocket launcher soldier on the hill across from you repeatedly. Now you have to hold this place for a total of nine minutes with about a minute before the first wave attacks, three minutes of the first wave, a minute break and then the second wave which is another three minutes. You must be holding both the HQ and car pool by the time the second wave ends so be prepared to run all over this map. Take out your sniper rifle and watch the path in front of you, the hill, and along the path to your right. Start sniping any enemies that you see, mixing it up with your assault rifle when they get too close. Should they get inside of the building, then you want to get your grenades or grenade launcher ready and start throwing them down the stairs at the enemies. Make sure to restock at the crate nearby. When you see a jeep or tank get on the rail gun turret and blow it up. You will likely run out of ammo for the turret before this is over so take that time to use your rocket launcher on the vehicles. If you see too many enemies run past or you hear that they have taken the Motor Pool, run out of the HQ and make your way over there. Fire a grenade over there to chase them out of cover and blow them away. It's easier to complete this if you keep the HQ for the whole match since it's easier to root people out of the Motor Pool than the HQ. Heck, you could just air strike the area near the turret and easily kill most enemies like that. If you're quick you should never even really be in too much danger of losing. ======================== Graveyard ======================== Destroy Enemy Tanks ------------------------ Since the enemies are being very nuke happy right now you are going to be stuck in your tank for the time being. Sadly, this would probably be easier if you were on foot with a rocket launcher but you don't really have that luxury. You will need to take out three waves of tanks and other vehicles as you try to bear down on the enemy base. The first wave is going to be four tanks so it isn't all that difficult. Try to use the rocks to make it so that only one tank has a clear shot on you at any given time. If you get hurt pull back behind the rocks totally and wait for the vehicle to repair itself before you come back out. One good strategy is to roll forward, fire off the tank cannon shell at an enemy and roll back behind cover while you wait for the shell to reload. Keep at it until you take out the four tanks and then start heading forward. A second wave of tanks will start rolling up on you, this time with another light armor with it. Take out the light vehicle first and then attack the tanks the same way as the previous ones. Hang back, firing at the enemies and make sure you stay behind cover. Lastly you will have to deal with a final wave of six tanks and three light armor vehicles. You will definitely need to hang back here and take cover quite often or you will find yourself getting blown up. ------------------------ Neutralize Artillery ------------------------ You are going to need to capture four different artillery objecives right now. However you are going to need to be careful since you cannot take your tank with you to most of these. Simply start rolling onward as best you can, using the tank machine gun and cannon to thin out the enemies. You are going to be at this for a bit so be careful but this isn't actually all that difficult. Roll in as best you can, use the tank and then get out and clea rthe area with your assault rifle. This isn't a terribly hard area. A few tips though, I would suggest you head to the forward left one first. Once you take out all of the enemies here and any nearby tanks you can clear the area and then get the rocket launcher from on top of the tower. You can get a good use out of it by taking out the self-firing turret nearby. Now move to the right one and use either your tank or rocket launcher to clear out the area before you go insiward. You will find a few automated turrets here so use your rocket launcher to get rid of them. The next two are much easier and quite simple. You will need to do the third one mostly on foot so be careful and use your rocket launcher to take out the turret over here. For the last one you can use your tank to pretty much clear the area, notably the automated turret that is located here. Like I said above, cakewalk. With all of those done you can keep on rolling forward to the next objective. ------------------------ Destroy the Rocket's Fuel System ------------------------ When you reach the actual launch complex you will be disabled by an EMP attack that is going to immobilize your tank. Immobilize it yes, but not stop the guns from working. As such stay inside the tank and blast away at your opponents for as long as you can. Once you don't think you can hit anymore enemies it's time to get out of the tank and use your assault rifle to start clearing the area. Try to take out as many enemies as you can as you head inside. You will find a rocket launcher and two flying drones, grab them up and look to your left and up. You should see some red rings emitting from one of the buildings. After you have taken out a bunch of the enemies go on over to that building and climb the ladder to the roof. Kill the soldier here and then shoot the EMP emitter until it breaks. Now you can use your drones, woohoo! Grab up the sniper rifle up here and use it to good effect, thin out the last of the enemies and then head on down. Move on towards the northern part of the complex where the rocket is. Take out a flying drone and send it up the area, searching for enemies and blowing them up until you have cleared the area. Now go on up to the panel, plant the charge and get outta there to end this part of the level. ------------------------ Destroy the Second Rocket ------------------------ Now you need to go to the other rocket, which is a bit of a ways off. Don't try to do this on foot, it'll take forever. Instead start rolling that way in your tank and make sure to take any of the objective points you come across as you go that way. There will be a few tanks and APCs nearby along with some soldiers so start blowing them away. Now keep on moving along the valley, taking out enemies as you go and make sure to pull back when you need to recover. Soon you will reach a bridge, requring you to get out of the vehicle and take it after you have cleared it of any soldiers. When you have taken this control point you will move on a bit before you are told that there is a helicopter inbound. Quickly get out of your tank and go under a bridge for cover. Now take out your rocket lancher and look in the direction you came from. You will see it coming so take out the rocket launcher, lock on, fire and then dive behind cover. It will hit the chopper without you staying to watch. Once you've reloaded step out again and repeat the process. It will take three shots to take it out. Once the chopper has been taken out you can continue forward, take the next objective marker and keep on going. There are a number of soldiers and tanks in the area that you will have to deal with but they shouldn't be that big of a deal at this point. You will have some difficulty getting past the barriers to the final objective though. This one is rough. Try to find some cover and start sniping off all of the enemies that you can see before taking out your rocket launcher and moving in. There's a tank on the other side so take it out and then move in with your assault rifle out. Kill the enemies in your way and head up the stairs to the left. Kill the soldiers in here and grab the rocket launcher and refill at the ammo crate. From here you should have a vantage point to take out some more enemies with the sniper rifle. With that done take out your rocket launcher and look at the far right side of the base. There's an automated turret there, so take it out. At this point a second helicopter will come so you will have to pull back and use the building as cover while you try to blow it out of the sky. Hide in the building and send out a flying drone. Use this to take the enemy in the guard tower (green tall box on struts) out and then scout around to make sure you've gotten all the enemies. There are a few on the rockt platform as well so make sure you check there. Once all the enemies are dead move on in, climb the ladders and set the bomb on the fuel line. It seems like you get blown up here but you really just win the mission, yay! ======================== The Mountain King ======================== Destroy the Tanks ------------------------ Okay, you can take a tank or a helicopter here. The tank is the infinitely more practical choice since it's less of an obvious target while the chopper is the much more fun choice. If you use the chopper be prepared to run and hide every so often since the damn thing seems to be made of paper mache with how easily it gets torn to shreds. Fly or ride into the base and blow up the enemy tanks, this isn't all that difficult at this point. It should be fairly routine by now. Once you complete this one take your chopper back to the starting point and get a tank if you don't already have one. ------------------------ Capture Southern Fortress ------------------------ Roll your tank up into the fortress and start blowing up any enemies that you see. There will be a number of vehicles and automated turrets that you will have to deal with. Well there might be if you haven't already blown them to pieces with the helicopter. Basically you wanna start blowing everything away until you run out of targets. There will still be some enemies in the towers but you will get to those in a moment. Now head for the right tower objective first, there's a rocket launcher located inside of it. Take out the enemies in here ruthlessly as usual and make your way to the rooftop objectives and seize it. With that one out of the way use it to take out any enemies or turrets remaining from up here. Refill on ammo and head for the other tower, heading on inside and clearing it. You will find some air strike binoculars here, grab them and then seize the objective. ------------------------ Capture Northern Fortress ------------------------ You want to approach this one in pieces. Don't try going down the line, you are going to have an easier time if you hit both ends of it first. The reason for this is that you can use your tank to reach those locations and blow the enemy to pieces. With this you will take out most of the enemies and weaken their interior defenses for when you head that way. Take out any enemies you can with your tank from the outside before going into the leftmost operations base. You will find very few difficulties with taking this structure, nothing you haven't dealt with before. Take out the enemy defenses and then hack the computer. Now head on out, get back into the tank and double back, going to the farthest right-most objective: the Motor Pool. This one is pretty exposed so you shouldn't have many difficulties here with your tanks assistance. Get out of the tank and head for an interior one now, the nearest being the Power Station. Take out the soldiers as you go but when you see the tank get out your rocket launcher and hide behind cover. Blow it up before heading on into the power station. Be very careful when making your way through this area since the enemies are pretty thick and there's a dangerously placed sniper. Go through it carefully, taking out the enemies as you go before you capture the objective and move on. The last one is the Satellite Uplink and is incredibly frustrating. Grab a tank and bring it as possibly close as you can, taking out enemies. You can either try to speed past it and sneak around behind it, sticking near the cliff face or you can rush the front and blow up the defenders with explosives. Take your pick and head for the dish, taking it out to complete this objective. ------------------------ Secure Fortress Door ------------------------ Head on over to the fortress door and start taking out any bad guys who start to come out. Take out as many as you can, heading toward the left side of the door. You should see an assault drone here, once the enemies aren't pouring out quite so fast deploy the drone and send it inside. Use it to take out the soldiers here and the turrets. However the drone is going to get wiped out by the turrets in the next room unless you're really good with piloting it. If it gets destroyed head on forward and use your rocket launcher to take out the turrets here. Now head on to the back of the area and use this terminal. ------------------------ Destroy the Generators ------------------------ First things first, grab the rocket launcher and the drone. Once that blast door opens it's going to reveal a tank. That's bad. Use the drone, driving it right under the tank to take it out. This next area isn't actually all that hard you just need to stick with your allies and start moving forward to clear out the enemies. Head down the right path, going towards the generator. When you enter the big warehouse type area use a rocket to blow up the auto-turret to your left and then move on forward. There are a number of enemies here but nothing too hard to take out so clear a path to the generator and then set the explosive charge. Now double back and make your way towards the left generator. Hide behind the containers and start taking out the enemies especially the ones on the catwalk. There is an armored turret here, he's just beginning for a rocket straight to the face so give him what he wants. Now head into the generator room proper and take out the guy on the above walkway before setting the explosive. ------------------------ Get the Data Core ------------------------ Once the large door opens head on in and start making your way down the big stairwell. As you are heading down there will be plenty of enemies so try to hit them before they shoot you since you are quite exposed. If you do start getting hit quickly lay down and try to take them out. By laying down you make yourself an incredibly small target so it should help. Take a right and enter the server room. There are some enemies here but they aren't too bad, go through very carefull and take them out. The weapon that you have is pretty well suited to these close range encounters so this shouldn't be an issue. Fight your way through the enemies and then head to the computer and activate it to finish this portion of the mission. ------------------------ Secure the Missile Controls ------------------------ Now head forward, making your way down the hall. You will find a bunch of enemies in this passageway so use the cover here to your advantage and make a path through them. Your allies will be pretty much worthless here, they have way too many problems coping with these small spaces, so it's mostly up to you. Clear a path through, get to the computer and use this console to complete this portion of the mission. It's in the leftmost corner of the room, just follow the objective indicator. ------------------------ Secure the Missile Silo ------------------------ Start making your way into the missile silo proper. As you move you will see a drone on the floor, pick it up. Continue forward until the passageway opens up and gets wider. To survive this corridor long running fight use the drone you just got and send it out. The drone should have an easier time blowing away the soldiers and then the mini-gun soldier. With that done you can head on into the silo itself. Search the area once you enter the silo to find a helicopter drone. This and your rocket launcher are going to be your best friends here. Find a safe spot and send the drone flying up the middle of the silo, the signal is measured in distance away from you horizontally, not vertically. Use the explosives that it fires to thin out the enemies and keep it up until it's destroyed. Now storm up the stairs, firing your rockets at opponents whenever they rear their ugly lil' heads. Aim for the wall near the enemies or at their feet if it is possible, this will blow them up without trying to hit them and risking a total miss. This will make it easier when enemies suddenly come in pairs. When you reach the control room check to see if there's any enemies still left in there. If so throw a grenade or two, with a rocket chaser, to clear them out. Head to the console and use it to end this level. ======================== Living Quarter ======================== Neutralize Enemy Outposts ------------------------ You've got some pretty nice hardward for this mission. The light machinegun holds 200 rounds and does a heck of a lot of damage. Very nice. The explosives you are using for this mission aren't a whole lot of help though. Hop into the jeep and start driving forward, taking out any enemies you come across. When you reach the first turret speed past it and take out the gunner from the rear. Get out of the jeep and use it for cover while getting rid of any remaining enemies. Take the objective and snatch the drone up. Continue on but ditch the jeep now. The enemies will have rocket launchers and one good shot will blow up your little jeep with you in it. Keep moving until you see a fallen tree, use it for cover. Start picking off the enemies, spray your gun across your targets and you should take them down pretty easily, even from appreciable ranges. Go into the trench and continue forward. There is an automated turret to your right, don't even try to attack this just now. If you sneak through the trench you can run past it and make your way toward the objective itself. Grab the rocket launcher, airstrike binoculars and the drone. Use the launcher to blow up the automated turret and then take the objective. ------------------------ Secure Bridge ------------------------ Make your way towards the left bridge, picking off any soldiers as you go. You will pass what looks like a water tower or somesuch, search the area for a sniper rifle and then keep going. When you near the bridge take out your rocket launcher and blow up the tank. Now approach the bridge carefully, switching to your sniper rifle to clear out the enemies that litter your path. Once you have gotten rid of most of them you can switch to your machinegun and get rid of the remainder with that. Head on over and take the bridge objective but be ready for a reprisal. A group of enemies will come up and attack your rear while another will come from the direction of the tower. Alternate between using your sniper rifle to take out the further enemies and using your machinegun when they get into close range. ------------------------ Secure Tower ------------------------ With that done start making your way forward. You will reach a large boulder, use this for cover while you take out the two automated turrets up ahead. Take out any soldiers that are nearby before coming out from behind cover. Move on over to the tower and go inside. Make your way to the top of the tower and keep your eyes open, some enemies will start shooting at you from a distance. Take out your sniper rifle and pluck off the ones that you can, switching over to your rocket launcher if needed. Plant the bomb on the objective and double back towards the bridge while you wait for the bomb to go off. ------------------------ Secure Slums ------------------------ Hop on into the tank near the bridge and make your way to the next objective but keep your eyes on the roofs. The enemies will come from the rooftops for the most part. Start making your way to the left objective first. Ride on over there and take out the defenders. If they are hiding inside of the objective then get on out and throw a grenade or two in to flush them out. Go inside and hack the console to complete this part of the objective. ------------------------ Secure Plaza and Municipal Building ------------------------ Make your way towards the nearest objective now. Move on in and start blowing up the turrets and rocket soldiers until an enemy helicopter attacks. Get out of the tank, find cover and take it out of the sky. Now get back into your tank and keep attacking the objective. You will have to deal with an enemy tank here so try to move behind it and hit it with a pair of shells in the rear to take it right out. Now make sure that your tank is fully healed up before you try to move forward. This next objective can be quite a pain. Make your way to the objective and blow up any enemies who cross your path. There will be an enemy with a rocket launcher hidden in a wrecked building nearby your objective marker. Take the objective and continue fighting the good fight. ------------------------ Destroy Roadblocks ------------------------ Since this level loads up and isn't a direct transition your loadout will be changed and you get a fresh tank. Don't know whether to be happy or not. Head east towards the nearest roadblock. Take out any enemies who get in your way and make your way to the objective slowly. Keep your eyes open and you will see the tell-tale red rings of an EMP emitter. Start shelling where it's coming from and you should take it out pretty easily. Move on in and take out the soldiers and the armored turret to your right. With all of the soldiers gone take the objective. Now start making your way towards the other objective. Start heading towards the other objective and you will encounter some pretty heavy resistance. There's a tank and rocket weilding soldiers as well as some armored turrets along the way. Always prioritize the rockt soldiers and tanks over anything firing regular bullets. Then take out the tanks and wipe out the remaining infantry. Keep moving toward the objective and you will find random soldiers and rocket launcher soldiers, take them out as you go. When you reach the objective itself start blasting away at them until you have cleared the place and then get out to take the objective. ------------------------ Destroy Information Node ------------------------ Start making your way towards the last objective you will find yourself having to deal with an enemy tank. Blow it up and search the area, you will find a few soldiers nearby. Take them out and continue onward toward the objective, taking out any enemies you come across in the process. Once again make sure to go after the rocket launchers and automated turrets before anything else. Watch for the armored turrets though, they can do some pretty hefty damage. When you reach the last objective get out of the tank clear out the enemies you can immediately see and climb up the rubble here. Get out your sniper rifle and start picking off the enemies you can see. When they're all eliminated move in carefully with your machinegun at the ready. Take out any stragglers and then head on over to the objective and set the charge. Mission complete. ======================== History Repeats ======================== Secure Plaza and Comm. Tower ------------------------ Take cover, shooting at any visible enemies and look for the drone and the rocket launcher to your left side when you pass the first street. Use your newly acquired rocket launcher to take out the tank over here before hiding. You can stay behind cover and use the attack drone to take the chances for you and wipe out some of the troops. Once your tank comes up rush for it and hop on in. Now you can use the tank itself to take out some of the enemies in your path and roll on towards the plaza. The plaza can be a bit of a pain, the enemies here are pretty well entrenched. Take out the tank first and then begin working on the snipers. They're less of a danger if you're still in the tank. Once you proceed a bit more inward you will find an enemy tank and some rocket launcher soldiers, you will need to be a bit careful with these guys. Take out the tank first and then the soldiers, they're a bit harder to hit than the tank so it's easier to go for them first. With that done make your way to the northwest, firing at the soldiers who are hiding in the buildings. You will find the Comm Tower, trailer really, over in this area. Head over to it, using it as cover and setting the explosive to blow that sucker sky high. ------------------------ Capture A Bridge ------------------------ Since you are right next to the northern bridge you might as well head on that way. Before you actually get onto the bridge you will be hit with an EMP blast from an EMP generator on the other side of the bridge. Hit it with a shell and get rid of it so you can move. Start heading across the bridge and begin taking out the enemy tanks on the other side as your first priority. Try to take out as many of the enemies as you can before your tank is reduced to molten metal. Run behind some cover and grab the rocket launcher near the objective and start blasting the enemies until you have some breathing room. Don't worry about taking out the enemies since once you take the objective the area is over with and the next one loads. ------------------------ Secure the Ministries ------------------------ Look nearby for a rocket launcher. Grab it and climb into the nearby tank. Head on over to the objective to the left, the Ministry of Defence. You are going to have hell getting to them though, there are a bunch of tanks and rocket firing soldiers along your path. As you drive that way keep your eyes peeled for a lone rocket launcher enemy hiding over there. When you finally reach the Ministry there will be a bunch of autoturrets that are waiting outside so blow them up fast before they get your tank. Go up to the big monument over here and pick up the two drones there before heading on over to the ministry. Send the tank drone inside and use it to clear out as many enemies as you can before it gets taken out. Whenever you finally have to head in, do so with caution, sticking behind cover at all times. Try to keep a distance from the enemies since many of them have shotguns and they will tear you to shreds. Make your way to the top and use the ladder to make your way up to the upper floor. There is an armored turret here so get to cover and use your grenades or rocket launcher to take it out. Take out your assault rifle and get your grenades out. Fling grenades into the room over here to thin out the enemies andthen head on inside to find Premier Frankov. He's a pretty tough soldier so try to aim for headshots and use some grenades to blow this sucker sky up. Search the area for an ammo refill and make your way back outside. Now start making your way toward the Ministry of Information, the other objective marker. You will need to take a fairly roundabout method to get there due to collapsed buildings and roadblocks but it's well worth it. There are three tanks and a bunch of soldiers along the way but you don't really have to worry too much. They shouldn't be that big of a threat by now. When you reach the Ministry itself you will find that there is a roadblock that stops you from taking the tank up to it. Use the cannon and machine gun to blow away all the enemies you can see before getting out of the tank and making your way inside. Run for your dear life as you get close to it since there are a bevy of snipers that will begin firing at you. Pull out the rockt launcher and blow up the armored turret in here. Now take out your flying drone and send it up the stairs, blowing up the enemies and the autoturret over here. Blow out a window and let it hover around outside at this point, leave it be. Now make your way to the office over here and climb up the ladder to the roof. As you get ready to head over to the objective you will be attacked by an assault helicpter. That's about as bad news as it sounds, so run for cover nearby... anywhere. It's a wide open area but you should be able to use something for cover. Personally I went with the running around like a lunatic between firing off shots at it. It will take about four to six shots to takeit out. Let yourself heal up and then start heading across the roof. There are a bunch of soldiers up here, take them out with rifles or grenades before make your way forward. Stop before you climb up the ladder to the upper roof and send your flying drone up there to blow up the enemies, especially the armored turret. With them dead head on up there and set a demo charge on the satellite dish. Now get the heck out of there and this fight is almost over. ------------------------ Secure the Plaza ------------------------ Alrighty, now you've got just one last thing to finally end this stinking war. Head back down to the ground floor and take a right on the street to find a tank just waiting on you. Get into it and make your way towards the objective. Make your way to the left hand side of the map to give you some distance from the enemies, they all come from the right. If you're too close you will be run roughshod over. Get out of the tank and run over to the monument in the middle of the area to find a bunch of turrets and deployables. Grab up the Rail Gun and Sentry and set up the Sentry near the monument so as to help with the soldiers. Basically you want the turrets to punish anyone who tries to come towards you with those automated turrets. The Rail Gun will come in handy for dealing with other vehicles so you want to set that one up close to you. Run quickly back to your tank and get ready to start this party. You need to kill enough enemies to fill up the objective bar so get to slaying. When using the tank on the soldiers and enemy tanks roll out from behind cover, fire at the enemies and then retreat when you need to heal. If there is ever more than one tank onscreen at once head on over to the Rail Gun and blow them to kingdom come. With them both gone jump back on into the tank and keep on attacking the enemies. Keep this up until you hear an enemy helicopter. Get out of the tank and hug a large obstacle and start firing at the helicopter with your rocket launcher. After it's been blown up get right back into the tank and start shooting at the enemies again. Once the tanks have stopped coming after you the fight is mostly done. Only soldiers will remain so all you have to do is keep killing them to fill the objective bar. That will complete the mission and the game. Congrats, you beat the single player mode! Now take it online maggot! ========================================================= 5. Multiplayer Tips ========================================================= - Always stick together in a squad to maximize your offensive potential. When doing so try to bring different load-outs with you. For example have a heavy assault, a light assault, an anti-vehicle and a close combat or special ops. By rounding yourselves out you will be able to take out most enemies with ease. - When on the defense try to set up choke points. Having two people watch a walkway with one as a close combat Drone Tech and a second with EMP tech can be quite effective. Let the drone surprise any enemies who come after you that way and if they try bringing in any drones of their own use your EMP to disable that and enemy vehicles. It's amazing what a few EMPs can do to protect an otherwise wide open objective. - Ground Support excels at taking enemy bases thanks to using the vehicles but the Air Support is shockingly useless. Unless the enemies are moving in a tight formation of vehicles you are better of using an Anti-Vehicle troop to take them out using the rocket launcher. -------------- Class Tips -------------- - When using an Anti-Vehicle character make sure to set those mines wherever the enemy isn't at the moment but where they will go. Mine a path that leads straight into your base with a mine or two and most enemies will get blown up before they get too close. Don't reveal yourself to them until you see if they survived or not. If they survive blast them to pieces. Should they not survive then you don't need to reveal yourself and let enemies know where you are. - The Assault class is more or less your general soldier. They don't have the best gun but they do have a pretty useful grenade launcher. Grenades make for good anti-troop attacks as well as lightly armored turrets. Try to stick with a a group of other soldiers even if not in a squad or you might find yourself dying a whole lot. - Heavy Assault is definitely your work horse. A few should be attacking and defending at all time. Since the battles focus around certain points keep a Heavy Assault at each objective to maximize your protection. They aren't too fast though so when using one you should always try to be a passenger in a vehicle. This will let you hop out at any time and try to take the objective... or just start blowing up opponents. - Snipers should do their best to not be near anyone else and always stay on the move. Find a nice sniping spot that overlooks one of three areas: one of your objectives, an enemy objective or a path that the enemies will travel. Now you will want to fire off a shot, get up and crouch run to another location so that you can keep watching the location. If you are caught laying down you are pretty much dead so be on the move. Camping is generally a bad idea. - When using a Special Ops you really want to move with a squad. Try to stay in cover at all times and use your scoped SMG to take out enemies from a range. Your ideal combat distance is close range but you can do okay in medium and even alright in long range. C4 is your major selling point since it can take out any vehicles you can get close to real fast. Since most players don't have the patience to wait for a gunner a tank will be mostly defenseless if you get in close, plant the C4 and blow it. - Close Combat is designed to work in close quarters, as the name says. These guys work best when assaulting, or defending, some sort of indoor area. This is where they can make the most of their weapon. The shotgun does have some quite surprisingly deadly range on it but you don't want to test that. Stay indoors and set up choke points with two Close Combat soldiers and you will kill almost anything that passes through immediately. -------------- Role Tips -------------- - Ground Support is vehicle use so don't pick a Heavy Assault and then hop in a tank. Pick a combination along the liens of a Close Combat Ground Support so that you can use a vehicle to blow up enemies from a range, get out and go into an enemy base and use your shotgun to blow them up. - EMP Tech is both offensive and defensive. If you can hide it outside of any immediate sight then you will be able to place it near an enemy objective and disable their vehicles. If you aren't expecting to be using vehicles too much then you can set them up near you objectives and stop any drones or vehicles. If you are indoors you will likely not be using too many drones for protection but an enemy might use one to try and attack you. Set up an EMP to stop them. - Drone Tech is incredibly useful but it isn't really the sort of role that you can focus on, like Ground Support. I'd suggest using a Special Ops / Drone Tech or a Sniper / Drone Tech. The Special Ops should be offensive, getting in an enemy base and sending out his drones while his squad watches his back. A Sniper should be defensive, hanging back and using drones to not give away his hidden position. Do remember that since your drone can't go too far an enemy will realize you must be somewhere nearby so keep mobile. It can be useful to scout an area for enemies and then start sniping any campers. - Air Support is a fairly marginalized role. It is a great role for Heavy Supports to take since vehicles are their greatest weakness and you can call down an air strike on them with this combo. Just be mindful of your lack of speed and don't get gunned down. ========================================================= 6.
