Tanks must give off a lot more heat then a truck don't you think? ********** Q. What's with the shooting gallery? A. Those guys seem to be pretty intent on killing you so it might be a good idea to start shooting back. ********** Q. How am I supposed to figure out who the assassin is? A.

I know it is tough but remember, what looks bad to you may be great looking to government employees. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Part Four: Russia Q. What do I do with Ying? A.

What is your boss telling you? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Walkthrough Part One: Washington You start out reading the local paper in front of the Washington Monument. Open your Intelink, click on COMLINK, and read the priority one message from Warhurst. He wants you at Langley. Close the Intelink and you automatically travel to Langley and are informed of the situation by DCI Peter Sterling. Report to Milkovsky at the Farm and explore his office. Nothing in here is crucial to the mission, but there are a few interesting items, including the blue book on the desk and the answering machine( with two messages you can hear). After Milkovsky has entered and then left, click on the open door and report to the Image Analysis. Examine the TV to learn of the assassination of the Russian president. Milkovsky shows up and sets you to work. The first puzzle is simple. Zoom in on the brown sedan at the middle of the screen, near the bottom, and keep zooming in on the license plate. Click on the OCE button for a view of the plate number which is 2GGX829. Then report it to Milkovsky. Question two is harder, because not all of the infrared blips are tanks. Three tanks outside are running and three inside are warming up so report six running tanks. After Milkovsky's demonstration, report to the Zone. This segment of the game is naught but a shooting gallery with dudes instead of ducks. In the first field test, march directly north across the zone and shoot any dweebs that pop up. In the second test march directly north to the radio beacon, again shooting anyone you see. Click on the radio beacon and move in any direction to finish the test. Check your Intelink for a message from Warhurst. Report to DCI Sterling at Langley to watch a very nasty assassination video and get the low down on you mission. Check you intelink for messages from Holt and Seaton. Go to you office and us the KAT on your computer. Link up the bullet holes to the left of the podium with the holes in the podium itself. Rotate to the right to find the point of origin. Click on the Mix and Match button, and search for the guy in the window. You quickly come up with a match: Thomas J. Phillips, a.k.a. Harmonica. Report your discovery and read the three new messages in your Intelink. Use Pinpoint on your computer to read about the different weapons systems. Check the Image Analysis again for a second look at the bullet holes. Report your findings to the team: the Russian was killed by a needle-pack-projectile from the Pulse Electric Gun (PEG). Receive and read the two messages. Report to DCI Sterling for info about the PEG. Check your Intelink for three messages. Return to you office for more fun with computers. Access the Security Model system and start to examine the records of the four employees. I'll spoil the fun by telling you that the guy who let the PEG escape is Darren Cohen. Analyze the female voice of the phone call on the 2nd; it's Yin Chungwang, a former North Korean spy turned freelancer. Trace the location of the phone call on the 22nd; it's from a residence in Washington. Examine the entry photo on the 24th; Cohen doesn't usually use the elevator (his profile reveals that he is claustrophobic) so this has to be someone else. Use the Mix and Match system to reveal this impostor as Wayne Allen. File a report that points to Wayne Allen, then file a second report that implicates Allen and Ying Chungwang, who's staying at 2314 EE. Rockland St. Receive a message from Warhurst and another message from an unknown source. Go to Halifax and click on the door knocker to meet with Sterling, Warhurst and William Colby. Check your Intelink and read the four messages. Return to your office and grab the items on your desk: a Shanghai II disk (which you can play by using it on the computer), an EBMC disk, a copy of the book "Beowulf", and issue a report that Ying Chungwang is in Moscow. View the message from Holt. Use the PhotoDoc on your computer and put together a fake photo of Wayne Allen in custody. Use the middle of the Turkish newspapers and put it on his left side without scaling it. Use the middle of the Emperor Filterless cigarette and put it on his right side, scaling it down. Use the middle face of Grendel on the top row and scale it to match his body. Looks really bad, I know but your buddies approve it. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Part Two: USSR Time to head to Moscow and meet with Max Foster. Check your Intelink for a message from Holt as you arrive. After Max has introduced herself, have a chat with Ying in the interrogation room; don't move her to the bullpen. Show her the picture of Grendel right off the bat, then say "Here's the deal...." "Speak up, or........" "Grendel's talking, Raven.........." "If you tell the truth..." "What was your role..." "Who do you work for....""What else can you tell me..." "Come on, what else..." and "Well, I'm going to go..." Check your Intelink for four new messages and talk to Foster in her office about Yuri and Birdsong. Check your Intelink again for two more messages. Go to Pearson's office and use the telephone. Hit the Speaker button to dial out, and call Yuri at 233-4819. Set up a meeting with him and leave the Station. Head for Birdsongs place first. You walk up to his door and he lets you in. Say "You've got to get...." He waffles and says he can't help you. Say "I won't ask you...". He says he'll consider it. Yeah, sure. Go to Yasevno and talk to Yuri about various topics. Return to Pearson's office at the Station and check your Intelink twice for messages. (The Sound Hack is the most interesting.) Take the folder off your desk to find a photo of Parker's very dead body. Check the messages on your phone to hear from Yuri and Birdsong. Check your Intelink for a message from Warhurst about Parker's assassination and Lange's disappearance. Not good. Leave the station and meet Yuri at Vilnius for a message about Birdsong. Return to Pearson's office and take the origami bird from the table. Look in the cabinet next to the desk and read about Operation Eagle Shield and Nukes. The Nukes folder has a computer disk inside. Use your EBMC disk on the computer and download both selections. Now use the Nukes disk on the computer and read the messages. Two of the messages with Gog and Magog as the subject have irregular headers. View them and crack them with the Cypher, using The Rabid Hound (under the "Other" menu selection). Receive and enjoy two Intelink messages from Holt and Sterling. Go into the OPS MGR and access the ATF archives about Felix Skodi (SIGINT page). Use the sound analysis on the computer to break down the call from Birdsong to Foster. There are four distinct sounds you can isolate: a 10-ton church bell, a passenger aircraft, a mountain sparrow and an electric tram. Report that Birdsong is hiding in Novosibirsk, at Nicholas Suvorov's residence. Foster compliments you via the Intelink on the good catch. Now it's time to investigate Procat Use your phone to call John Blake at 011-44-171-555-0909 and set up an meeting. Check your Intelink for a message from Warhurst. Leave the Station and go into the alley to get a file on Yuri from a Hillary Clinton look-a-like. Go to Birdsongs house to poke around. Examine the doorknob and use your lockpick to open the door(it's that black thing in your briefcase).Look around to find a whole lot of clues that Birdsong wanted to see the Big Sky Country of Montana. If you go into Birdsongs house a second time you are followed by Lange. Shoot him because he is a traitor. Get out of there quick before the police come though. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Part Three: Let's Try England Travel to London and meet with John Blake in the back of his residence. You can examine Blake's computer and other items while he's gone; he won't get mad if he finds you prying around when he returns. Ask him as many questions as you can. After the meeting, check your Intelink for a message from Colby. Return to Washington and rifle through the offices of Holt and Seaton for clues. Seaton's office is much more interesting, with an e-mail-filled computer that reveals a past relationship between her and David Holt. Go to your Intelink's OPS MGR and click on the Procat link in the OPS category. Read the large Procat file, and wait for and Intelink message from Holt. Ask him about Procat and Paw Print. Return to Moscow and check your Intelink for three messages. Tell Maxine to offer Birdsong a house in Montana. Go to Pearson's office and access the computer. Order the newest book from EBMC, "Croak! Goeth the Raven." Read the Procat and Yuri files in your briefcase. Your next task is to locate Onyx. Go to the CIA's Datalink site and read the case file on Onyx. Research his file and track him down through the Travel Tech database. (Remember that he's a fussy eater and always sits in a first-class aisle seat.) Report to Holt that he's currently in Heidelberg. Leave the computer and answer the phone. It's Yuri, who wants to meet. Go to his office to receive a file about Onyx. Ask him a couple of questions, although he will refuse to answer. Check your Intelink for two messages. Return to the Onyx case file and use the CEFT to track him to the Hotel Schlumpen in Heidelberg. Receive a message from the President himself, followed by Sterling. Travel to Germany and to the hotel. Talk to Onyx and threaten to send the Indian government into Jammu. At the end of your chat, tell Onyx to freeze while you look around. Go into the closet, take the handcuffs and use them on Onyx. Go to the meeting at the Scharfenstahl and choose the Talk option. Give the password "French Vanilla" and you walk away with the pit in your hands. Check your Intelink for messages of congratulations. Return to Pearson's office and answer a call from Harmonica. Answer the Intelink for a message from Foster. When you get to the crime scene and see the body, pick up the camcorder and leave. Take the video camera off your desk and snatch the chip inside. Use the chip on your computer to analyze the video of Birdsong's capture. Import the final frame of the video into the Image Analysis to see that Rajiv Jalabad was the killer. Look at Pearson's file in the CIA Datalink files to find Rajiv Jalabad's address. Report that Jalabad was the killer, and that he's at the No. 19 Leningradsky Prospekt. Receive a message from Warhurst. Read the files on the Badman interface. Leave the Station and tell Max that Harmonica wants to meet in the alley. Meet him there and say, "What do you want...." "And now..." "Finger me for the mole..." ""So what do I need..." "Join Procat......" and, "No thanks-I'd rather die than join Procat." Harmonica gets away just before Foster and the gang arrive. Go to Kneecaps' residence (be sure to save) and press the GPS button in the truck to start the operation. Immediately walk up the stairs to the second floor. Birdsong is in the higher of the two small rooms on the north side of the building. Demolish the south wall of the eastern room, then walk into Birdsong's room to automatically remove him. Return to Pearson's office and check your Intelink for a message from Holt, who gives you two new Beale codes. Decipher the messages with the third book from the EBMC, "Croak! Goeth the Raven." Holt sends you a message that the coordinates you decrypted are in Tunisia. Leave the office and head for Tunisia. Leave the office and head for Tunisia. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Part Four: The Beginning of the End Hop into the chopper and you're dumped off at the rendezvous point. Hey, it's that ridiculously simple shooting sequence from the beginning of the game! Walk around and shoot each bad guy as he pops out to shoot you. Go to the middle of the zone and you're confronted by John Blake. Drop your gun and wait for Blake to try to shoot you. His gun malfunctions and he goes for his knife. Grab your gun, but don't shoot Blake. Let him drop his computer on the ground and run away. Take the backpack and check your Intelink for a message from Sterling. Close the PDA and get back on the chopper. The game automatically saves. You think maybe something potentially fatal is about to happen? Turn around and take the computer out of the backpack. Boot it up and you trigger a self-destruct sequence. Quickly use your Intelink on the computer and start to download files. The meter stops at the 35% mark. Quickly cancel the download and chuck the computer out the copter door before it blows up. Check your Interlink for a message about the data error. You managed to grab nine files. View the first two and decode the seven Beale cyphers with "Croak!" Receive a message from Colby, who suggests you send one of the messages. Send the "Blues Roots" message through the Finland phone number. Close the Intelink and wait for the chopper to land. You're now in Red square to track down Harmonica and kill him before he kills the president. Check your Intelink to chat Seaton, who patches you into a satellite view of Red Square. You're looking for a signal that oscillates, which is a giveaway of the weapon's location. And speaking of giveaways: the signal is in the upper left corner, oscillating between orange and red, on the border between Volpe and Hwang. Close the Intelink and shoot Harmonica. Shoot when the camera stops scanning the audience. Check your Intelink for three messages. Go to the Dacha in Crimea for the final scene. Drop your gun when Warhurst appears. Say "Here's a news flash..." to get Seaton on the line, then say, "So that's why you put this team together?" and """"That's why you hacked my PDA." Get your gun and shoot Warhurst while he's temporarily stunned by the Sound Hack. Finally, shoot Yuri when he tries to haul away the Russian. You Win!!!!!!!!!!!!! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Closing: A Fond Farewell Well this is the end of my hint guide and I hope it helped you.
