Winback: Convert Operations Guide Created by DomM64 Versions 1.0 1/1/00 This game guide was put together by me, but I have gotten all the information from the web. I have the credits from which web sites I have taken the information from at the Ending section of my guide. --->Contents<--- <1>Storyline <2>Characters <3>Game Controls <4>Weapons <5>Strategy Hints <6>Walkthrough <7>Bosses <8>Cheats <9>Gameshark Codes <10>Ending --->Storyline<--- The first blast wiped out your Space Center. In just 3 hours, the high- tech weapons satellite is going to strike again... It's your job to make sure that it doesn't. Play the role of Jean-Luc Couger, a special operative for an independent goverment agency called S.C.A.T. (Strategic Covert Actions Team). A terrorist group called the "Crying Lions" has infiltrated the high-tech security complex that houses the GULF Strategic Weapons System, a high- tech satellite with laser capabilities. They have already destroyed the Center for Space Research, and their leader has announced that they have no demands - the main agenda is destruction. The GULF system needs from 3 to 4 hours to power up before the next blast, so Jean-Luc and the other operatives have just about 3 hours in which to accomplish the impossible - take back control of the GULF complex, or disable it so that the terrorists may not make use of it. Several years ago, the country of Saroczia was ripped apart by civil war, the result of ethnic strife and mounting pressures. In order to bring peace to its troubled neighbor, Argent agreed to lend its military support to the government in Saroczia. After a year of long fighting, the government of Saroczia seemed ready to stand on its own. The leaders of the anti-government movement vowed that one day they would achieve ethnic independence, and left Saroczia to spread out over the globe as mercenaries. After several years of stability, and with the military might of Argent behind it, Saroczia has reached new heights of popularity with the people; the independence movement is all but dead - except for the small group led by Kenneth Coleman - who know holds the fate of Argent in his hands. --->Characters<--- --->S.C.A.T. Members Jean-Luc Lisa Matt Jake Tom Dan Keith Steve Mike Law --->Crying Lions Kenneth Cecil Banderas Gunt Duke Jin Ryan Leon Lila Sgt. Thunder --->Game Controls<--- --->Attack Mode Automatic Sighting system (R + A) The automatic sighting system focuses your weapons sight on the enemy in front of you. When faced with more than one enemy, the system focuses first on the most dangerous enemy. Using the control stick, you can switch the focus to other enemies by simply moving the sight to the general area of the enemy you wish to target. Reload (B) This reloads your weapon. It is possible to load while in motion or with your back to the wall. Weapon Toggle (C Up) This button allows you to choose among the weapons that you are carrying. Manual Sighting (R + Control Stick + A) The control stick guides the targeting system of the weapon. As mentioned previously this allows you to change your aim to different enemies. It also allows you to shoot objects other than your enemies. (eg. drums, crates, etc.) Setting Bombs (Directional Button + Down) Set and explode bombs using this control. Hand to Hand (A) Pressing the A button while in close proximity to an enemy character allows you to kick your enemy. Although it does not do much damage, it does throw your enemy off balance. This is useful when you need to reload. Also, it is possible to defeat your enemy with one blow if you can strike from behind before they realize your presence. --->Movement Movement (Control Stick) The control stick causes the character to move in the indicated direction. Movement speed is controlled by the angle of the control stick. The greater the angle, the faster the character moves. Back to the Wall (A) Pushing the A button while close to a wall allows you to put your back to the wall. The control stick allows you to move slowly along the wall while in that position. This is useful when approaching corners. Crouching (Z) Crouching allows you to hide behind short objects. The control stick allows movement while in this position as well. You can move from box to box and avoid much enemy fire. Also crouching throws off your opponents aim at times. Evasive Action (A + Control Stick) Use of these button while ducking down allows you to do a forward roll. This is useful if you need to move quickly while staying under cover. Opening Doors (A) This button allows you to open doors and get the items or enemies on the other side of those doors. Picking up Items (A) Allows you to pick up and use various items. --->Camera Changing Point of Focus (C Left + Right) This spans the camera from left to right allowing you to view around you. In Capture Camera Mode, it allows you to choose which enemy to lock on to. Camera Toggle (C Down) This allows you to choose between camera modes. If pressed while an enemy is in your field of view, this locks the camera on that enemy (Capture Camera Mode). This is useful when fighting Boss Characters with underlings. --->Weapons<--- --->Confirmed Weapons Rocket Laucher - A Gun which shoots Rockets out, usually big, I havent seen one yet in any screen shots, but Im sure its the weapon everyone wants. Plastic Explosives - Basically, bombs, plastique, possibly in an objective you have to lay a bomb, from what I have seen, the explosives are cool. Flamethrowers - A gun which throws out flame, I hope enemies start on fire which would be a neat effect. Assault Rifle - More of a "machine gun", a great weapon to have. Shotgun - Slow but powerful, the shotgun hopefully will give you the feeling of the kick on one. Pistol(always with infinite ammo) - a hand gun! --->Unconfirmed Weapons Frenchi Spas12 - Basically a type of Shotgun, This isnt unconfirmed, but I found it in screen shots. C4 Explosive - A type of explosive, its in a movie, do you know which one? --->Strategy Hints<--- --->One at a time Take your enemies one at a time. One on one is both easier and safer than ten on one. Jumping out in a crowd and starting to shoot guarantees that you will get hit a number of times. Don't lose life points needlessly. Make effective use of the terrain to sneak up on your enemies. Be careful about making unnecessary noise. The enemy has very good ears and will converge on the area from which the noise originates. --->Explosives It is also good to use the exploding crates and drums. Use the Control Stick to sight on these explosive items. Enemies hiding behind or near these objects take a lot of damage. --->Use Surprise After sneaking up close to an enemy, jump out and shoot them. For example, at a corner move to the very edge. Then jump out and shoot them before they get set. Whenever possible, get around your enemy and shoot him in the back. This is extremely effective. Frequently, you can kill him with one shot. --->Timely Reloading You are defenseless while reloading. So don't do it while in the middle of a gun fight. Nine times out of ten, you will get shot. Getting shot stops the reloading process. Find someplace out of sight of your enemy to do your reloading. Whenever possible start a gun fight with a full magazine. --->Camera There are two modes for the camera: Normal Mode and Capture Camera Mode (CCM). CCM locks the camera's orientation on an indicated enemy. Each is different in ease of control and in speed (time it takes to lock on to an enemy). Each has its strong points and its weak points. Choosing which to use at any given time is important. --->Walkthrough<--- --->Stage 1 You start out with a machine gun, a shotgun and the pistol. You should start out behind a large blue box, turn around and shoot this guy, But do not let him run away and get his friend, finish him off right away. After killing this guy pick up the magazine and run behind the next wall where you will find another enemy. Nail him like the last guy, then if you keep on going you will see two boxes like this: box box you Go to the first box, then run to the next box. You might see some bad guys, kill them with your pistol. Then run to a large white box and hide behind it, then to a blue box ahead. 3 enemies should come in sight, 2 of them like to move around alot, kill the two on the ground, dont worry about the one on the roof yet. After killing them, go to the truck and hide behind the bumper, I use the shotgun for this guy. I pop out and the guy should "fall" to his death off the roof. This should be very simple if you take your time and use stealth. Now walk to the door, if the enemy has his back facing you, simply pistol whip him. then to your left you will find a bag of goodies with ammo. Pick the ammo up. Now dont just run outside the door, there is one guy who follows you and pops up! I reccomend hiding behind something, but you can get away with just shooting him. Now keep on going to the silver box and you should get a cut scene. After the cut scene two enemies approach, take your time and take care of the first one, the other guy should be by the last box, take him out. Now you get to your first laser trap in the game. Shoot the box like you do in training mode and continue. Be careful and crouch between the 2 boxes, try not to let the bad guys call for help. Finish all of them off, If you feel like wasting ammo, use your machine gun or shotgun, but a pistol is fine. In the right corner pick up some ammo for your shotgun,then shoot the brown box. Crouch and run ahead to the first blue box, then kill the next 2 enemies. Keep on crouching between boxes double checking everything and takin your time. Then you come up to 2 enemies blast them away with a pistol and go ahead. Crawl down the ladder to the checkpoint. Get your machine gun out cause you need to kill the next guy quickly so he doesnt go back, crouch under the first box and he should show up, after shooting him, crouch behind the next one. If you go ahead you will see a blue laser, you can check out the cut scene but basically theres a laser switch you need to shoot up there. So take a right. Now take a left, get ready for your biggest challenge yet. Run crouched to the first box. Take a breath, then use my strategy:Run crouched until you see enemies start to run, then run back to the box you were at. There should be 3 enemies for you to kill. Use your machine gun and try not to get hit. When you do that try to let the guy on the upper level leave also. Once killing both of those guys, climb up the ladder. I have a new strategy, just crouch and pick the enemies up with your machine gun because it has a longer range. Then pick up the C4 Explosive and there should be a plateau where you can see the water. Then shoot that guy with your machine gun quickly, and pick up the magazine. Run across the bridge and shoot the guy quickly so he doesnt get behind his wall. After this one shoot the box to get a med kit! If you turn to your left you will find a laser switch on the other side, shoot it and hide by where you shot the guy from above. Some baddies should come back, Shoot them! And go back down the ladder. Back in the water hide by the med kit and shoot the bad guy with a pistol. Then theres a guy waiting to your right, dont go left! pick him off and continue by taking a right, then you should see 3 bad guys, I would use a shotgun or a machine gun, but do this slowly and try not to get hit. Shoot a box to continue on. Move ahead and crouch, there should be 3 or 2 guys waiting for you, take your time, these guys are smart, and use your machine gun to take them out! After getting them run to where you were shooting your enemies, but watch out because a man may walk up behind you, so be ready. Now go into the room with the big fence around it and by the medkit there should be a ladder, go down it. After the cut scene there is a laser hovering, I use a shotgun and shoot the enemies, then I shoot the laser conrtoller thingy and continue up the ladder. After doing that, hide behind the blue box and kill the enemy. Go into the door and you have beaten level 1! --->Level 2 When you reach the edge of the building, the camera perspective changes. You now look down over an open area with some crates in it. An enemy will move across this area from left to right. You can only target him with your submachine gun. You don't have to take him out, but if you want to, you'll have to lead your shot a little in front of him. Target him with the bottom C button, aim with R, and use the joystick to move your laser sight just barely in front of him as he runs. Another enemy will enter from the upper right; he'll take cover behind a crate and start shooting. Use your submachine gun on him, too. You can waste him pretty easy, or just ignore him and run away. When you're finished here, move to your left and run toward the camera until the perspective returns to normal. Follow the fence to the door and go through the door. You're in a room with one long conveyer. Move to the edge of the conveyer and head right; you'll trigger a cut scene. Some crates will start moving. Guards face you on the other side of the belt; hide behind the moving crates to reach the far end of the conveyer belt. Go around the end to the left. As you work your way down the other side of the belt, you'll come up from behind on two guards. You can pistol-whip each one if they didn't see behind the moving crate. Continue past where the second guard was and go through the door. You're back out on the roof. To your left is a large structure that looks like a generator or large fan housing. Crouch down in the middle of it; an enemy will position himself just around the corner of the rail up ahead. When you see him, target him and take him out. Once he's out of the way, move to the edge of the railing (just before it turns the corner). The railing provides adequate cover from your next enemy, a guy with a machine gun. The rail he's hiding behind may protect him from your auto-aim shots. You might have to auto-aim, then pull back very slightly on the joystick to raise your laser sight and hit this guy in the head. Once he's gone, continue around the corner to the next generator-thing and hide behind it. There's another enemy behind the far rail. He can't hit you even if you stand up behind this generator structure. Swing out and get rid of him. Again, you may have to aim high. Now go around the generator and follow the path around. You'll see a recess in the fence with a ladder going down. Go down the ladder. As soon as your feet are on the ground, crouch down, turn left, and blow up the wooden crate. The brown crate on top of it will drop down, making the back of the truck accessible. You'll have to backtrack quite a ways to the ramp that leads up to the truck, but it's worth it: there's an ammo pouch in the truck. Now move to the right of the ladder, around the blue container. You'll find a laser switch. Take it out. Go behind the sand bags for some health, then come out from behind the sand bags, and follow the wall of the large white container they're up against. Go around the first corner, put your back up against the white container's wall, and slide to the left. You'll see three enemies waiting for you. Target the enemy furthest to the left and take him out one shot at a time. Remember the other two guys will try to aim and shoot before you swing back behind the container each time you shoot, so be quick! Once the far left guy is gone, target and take out the middle guy, then the guy on the right. Continue around the corner and go through the door. Run around the blue container to your left. You're in an empty alley with a small building and an explosive barrel at the other end. Shoot the barrel as soon as you can see it. The building has an open doorway facing into the alley. DO NOT go in the doorway, there are two enemies standing inside it. Sneak up to the wall just to your side of the doorway, put your back up against it, and pop these guys with the swingout technique. Enter the building, go to the desk in the corner and get the key. Get the health in the other corner if you need it. Walk out of the building and quickly crouch down behind the small blue box. Take out the enemy on the other side of the small blue box, and stay down. Take out the other enemy behind the low wall to your left. If you only hit this guy once, he'll try to run away, so make sure you finish him quickly. Go back to the door you came in from and go through it. Crouch down and move to the red box on your left. If you're lucky, the enemy won't see or hear you, and will just continue patrolling past. The next time he walks by, wait for him to turn his back on you and pop him. Go around the red crate and put your back up against the white wall adjacent to the red crate. Swing out and take out the enemy at the top of the ladder. Go around the corner and put your back against the white wall. Slide to your right and blow away the three guys behind the sand bags. One might reposition himself in front of the sand bags, but he won't rush you. Try using your shotgun on these guys, they're close together. Go past where the lasers were and through the door in the fence. Head up the ramp on your right. You're back in the hall with the exploded wall. Immediately run to the red box and crouch down. An enemy will position himself on the other side of the box. Don't worry, he won't shoot you when you're crouching. Be bold and take him out. Use the crates for cover from the enemies behind them. Once the first guy is out, move up to the conveyer belt. You'll have three new enemies, each one behind a different conveyer belt (near, medium and far). Use the crates for cover and start with the nearest enemy. You can take out all three with your pistol. Cross the room (around the conveyer belts) and go through the door. Go down the hall, through the double doors, down the ramp, and make a U-turn. Crouch down behind the small blue box and drop the nearest enemy. You can use your submachine gun to take out the far enemy from behind the blue box. If you're out of submachine gun ammo, you'll have to make a run for it through the doorway to the big red container, where you can swingout and waste this guy. Note that as soon as you reach the big red container, two new enemies will jump off the roof of the building past the container. These guys wear all black, and they carry knives. They will run up to you and stab you, killing you instantly. They won't hide behind something and wait for you to shoot. Be ready for them! Don't put your back against a wall, just stand still behind the big red container, facing the corner each enemy will have to turn. Have your shotgun loaded and ready, and when the first thug in black comes around the corner, blast him-twice if you have to. Do it again for the other thug in black. Once they're out of the way, continue over to the building they jumped down off of, and open the door. You've completed level two! --->Level 23 Firstly you start out right in front of a helicopter pad, still alive. Slowly move your way to the right side of the first crate in front of you. Hug agaisn't it, you'll see a terrorist pacing back and forth, when he turns around (with his back facing you) nail him with you gun handle. Now move to the next crate and hug agaisn't it, when the terrorist turns around, nail him with your handle also. Quickly turn around and aim your gun at a terrorist on top of the crates making a run for it, it isn't Terry Fox, so take him out with a couple of hits. Now sneak up the ladder onto the top where the terrostist was making a run for it. A video sceen will show you that there is a machien gun post inplacement inside the back of a 18 wheeler. Quickly run all the way across with out him hitting you, then take the ladder down to the other side of where you started off. When you start moving another video sceen occurs, and shows you that there is a terrorist and a machien gun post, don't waist your time, and just run across. Once you get across to the next set of crates, another gun placement, and a couple of terrorist wait for your appearance, just do the same as you did before and just run across to the next part, where another video sceen takes place. It shows a group of four trigger happy terrorists, when video sceen is over, crouch run to the blue crate then roll over to it. If you do it correctly, then you should just see the bullets wisping past you head. Once you have some cover, slowly run to the pillar closet to them and get a lock on one of them. Hug the pillar, and spin around a take two shots at him (the two shot rule, if you go for three they always get you). Work your way though all of them till they're all dead. Now run for the door located on the right side, go trough it. In this small little room pick up the medi pack, if you need it, then open the door going inside. Run up to the first pillar and hug agaisn't it, two terrorists will come running up from either side. In this case you can just spin around at one, and keep on firing at him, because the other guy won't be able to get you. Then spin around the other side and take out the other guy. (note: this guy usually runs to an explosive crate over near the other pillars, just duck once he starts firing, and he'll nick the crate and kill himself). Now move up to the next pillar and hug it, another two buddies, will come up from either side, just take them out like you did above. Run the rest of the way down the tunnel, and you'll meet up with a shot law leaning agaisn't a wall. He'll force you onto the elevator, and you'll get to watch him die with honor. Anyway once you come down, you'll get a checkpoint, and will have to battle Gunt. --->Bosses<--- --->Lila First, you hug the first column your at and target the helper with the boss. Then, pull out your shotgun and blast the helper away, it will help to do it first. Then, run across the room verticly to the coloumn next to the medkit. If you still have the rocket launcher, pull it out. If not, pull out the sub machine gun. Press C-Down to Camera the boss, and as she takes her pauses from firing, step out and shoot her. It will take awhile, and you may need the medkits, but it's an easy way to kill her. The rocket launcher is the easiest to use, but make sure your not standing in front of a wall or it will reduce your health to red or death. If you follow these steps and common sense, you should have beaten that ugly hag, Lila. --->Sargent Thunder Sargent Thunder has his self a big ole FlameThrower, uhoh! And there are 3 enemies surrounding, uh oh! When I beat Thunder I ignored those badguys up there, and for the most part it works. But Sargent Thunder shoots his flamethrower in a certain way. Try to keep Thunder from shooting his flamethrower by hitting him constantly, I just thought of this, but maybe if you had a C-4 Explosive you could take care of him? Also if hes by a box, shoot the box it will hurt his health severlely. So basically its trial and error with this guy. --->Dan You start off right in the line of his fire so immediately duck.and press c-down to lock and pop up and fire he will duck but continue to fire at the cans. If you dont blow up the cans quit and restart. Next he will run to your left,stay were you are,so you dont turn on the lazers.RELOAD. Again fire at him, when he ducks keep firing to blow up the cans.If you don't blow up the cans Quit and restart the process. Now he will run all the way to the boxes on the far right. Pull out your Machine gun. and pre aim at the barrels next to him and blow them up If you dont blow them up restart. Now run to where the midipack on the right is and whip out the shotty. Shoot Dan in the Face until he will probably have no health left when you kill him. Now a little movie comes on but you are not done. You start off below Cecil so immediately run to the medipack on the left pick it up and run up the ramp. Now it gets extremely difficult. Avoiding the lasers by ducking walk up the ramp and try to kinda pre aim before popping up to shoot the little box thing for the lazer. then run to the stationary gun to shoot Cecil to death. --->Jin You start off on the opposite side of the generator as Jin. Shoot him the second he comes around the corner then run to the other side of the same generator(to keep track of him), because he blows up or shoots out fire or some wierd thing to kill you. just keep him coming, after you and shoot and run. It will not take long to kill him and he wont kill you fast by him shooting you. --->Duke You start off right behind a bunch of explosive boxes so run to the right immediately. Lure his bullets to the gas can by the pillar by staying be hind it ata good distance. Once he blows up the can hide be hind the pillar. Use the back to the wall and pop out technique to shoot him if you have a shot gun use it. after he is about 3 quarters the way dead run back to the starting point the boxes should be blown up already,do not try to shoot him on the way or he goes crazy and doesnt pause shooting he just spreads lead everywere.once you are behind the pillar use the pop out technique to shoot him again. Now he will go crazy and shoot all over the place from right to left once he is firing towards the right hand of the screen pop out and cap him good. If you have a shot gun do this a couple more times and you will kill him. If not run toward the frontleft side and hide behind that pillar after he blows up the explosives. Pop out when he is firing toward the opposite side of the screen, he should die be fore you have to run again but if not run toward the right and hide behind that pillar and do the same as all the other pillars. --->Gunt You start off in the middle of a room. immediately run right avoiding his rockets (try to stay a little ways from the wall or the rockets will explode and kill you. then shoot him and run righ up next to him,shoot him again, run to the other side of him and shoot him. Reapeat this proces as close as possible to him.If you do this all right you can beat him without getting hurt.Try to use the shot gun since it takes off the most damage. --->Cheats<--- --->Get all the Multiplayer Characters At the main menu when it says press start, press Up, Down, Down, Right, Right, Right, Left, Left, Left, Left, C-Up + Start. --->Extra medkit In the beginning of the game when you get your first ammunition pack, do not kill the bad guy. If you hide behind the crate where the ammuntion pack is, he will put a medical kit on the table in the right corner of the room. --->Flame Thrower In Multi-Player Mode First you have to unlock the boss characters. Then while playing in multi player mode choose Thunder as your character. Now while in the game press R to raise weapon, then press the reload button to fire your Flame Thrower. --->Greater lock-on range for pistol If you need a farther lock on for your pistol, switch to your machine gun and then switch back to your pistol. You will then be locked on. --->One-Hit kills Beat the game on hard difficulty with the best ending and Sudden Death Mode opens up, where one hit kills (you, enemies, bosses, objects). --->Trial Mode (Level Select) To unlock the Trial Mode to play all of the levels in WinBack without beating the game, enter this code: At the "Press Start" screen, enter the following: (On the Directional Pad)- Up, Down x2, Right x3, Left x4, then hold C-Down and press Start.
