Intel briefcase locations
You will get money for picking up a briefcase. Each briefcase can only be collected once and will disappear in future playthroughs. Pause game play and select the "Objective" option to check many briefcases you have collected for the current level. Note: You do not have to collect all briefcase in your first playthrough. You can find missed briefcases during subsequent playthroughs.
- Look behind the first M-11 missile you find to find a small path going uphill nearby. Follow it to reach the briefcase.
- Kill the first heavy armor guard you encounter. After the intermission sequence, search the nearby platform area. The briefcase is on top of a short set of stairs at the back end of the platform.
- In the area next to Brian Hick's cell.
- Just before climbing up the ladder to take out Ali Youseff's helicopter, get the briefcase at the bottom of the ladder.
- Call in the air-strike on a nearby bunker, then search for a large tent near the dividing wall. The briefcase is against the wall near the tent.
- Just before meeting Ali Youseff you will see metal platforms with armed guards. Kill all of the guards then climb up the steps to the platform's second level. Climb another ladder to the third level to find the briefcase.
- Aircraft Carrier
- Land on the ship's main deck and run to the right of the control tower to find the briefcase.
- When you enter the hangar to use one of the parked planes to blow through a door, look behind some missiles to find the briefcase.
- After setting the missiles to blow up the ship in the final hangar, search until you find a makeshift basketball court. The briefcase is behind the far basket.
- Go to the dam, then move towards the first control tower. Across the dam is another control tower with the briefcase.
- Go to the village and co-op snipe some enemies. Follow the rightmost path. Enter the first house you can explore and search the second floor for the briefcase.
- Go to the factory, but do not enter. Search behind the factory to find the briefcase.
- Open the gates to the luggage area then go to the control room. Search the smaller office near the control room to find the briefcase.
- Go to the third floor of the SSC Tower. Instead of operating the lift, run to the far end of the third floor to find the briefcase.
Defeating fully-armored enemies
Throw a grenade in front of your enemy to knock him down. Before he gets back up, either shoot him until he is dead or have the grenade launcher as your frontmount and use one of them to take him out. Depending on the area you are out will change the difficulty of doing this. Remember to use the aggro system to your advantage.
China: Easy money
- Start the China mission and complete the first objective for $30,000. After you have successfully completed the objective, quit and reload the mission for another $30,000. You may have to walk back down the mountain for the money to be given to you. This can be redone as many times as desired.
- At China, take out the bridge for some money, then proceed through the level until reaching the part where you must fill the water lock. Use the first switch, drive the air boat into the lock, climb up the ladder, use the second switch, then when you try to cross the bridge, look up and destroy the chopper. Repeat the process as many times as desired.
China: Shooting down the first Chinook
One of the secondary objectives is to shoot down the Chinook at the lock. Simply hit it with a Stinger missile a few times.
Getting past the dual missile site
When the door opens kill the first set of enemies, then go to the bottom of the missile on the right and set the charge.
After skipping a ladder and jumping too far above the ground, press [Roll] to take no damage.
Run up to an enemy and press [Shoot] when close. Try to make sure you are actually aimed on them while approaching your target, or tapping [Shoot] to get in the first hit. If you press [Shoot] too soon you will stop and shoot them. You will do varying melee attacks depending on your level of aggro.
Either allow your partner get full aggro, then let him keep getting aggro until the Overkill option appears; or have your own character get full aggro and keep attacking until you get that option.
Recommended Professional difficulty weapons
Use a fully upgraded AK-47, PMK, or Felin 2-c. You can also try the shotgun in the second weapons group in the primary weapons dealer fully upgraded it for one shot kills and taking out the heavy armor enemies, or a fully upgraded AUG with front mount.
If you want to play as Rios and are stuck as Salem or vice versa, use the following steps to play as the other character. Start the game with a previously saved game available. Select Campaign mode. Select single player, then a new campaign. Select the character you want to play as. Exit and do not start the new campaign. Then, select either "Continue from Checkpoint" or "Select Mission".
