"Border Crossing": Easy completion
Complete Objectives 1 and 2. Use the Map Computer to find the river and the best path to it. Press Z two times to crawl and make your way to the river. When you reach near the river, you will be able to see the red line (not to be crossed) and "Danger" and "Mine" symbols. Do not cross the line. Walk besides it up to the end of the mission. Do not bother to kill enemies in order to save time and avoid tanks. You will be able to get near the helicopter. Cross the fence to complete the mission.

The trucks that can be found in every mission are the perfect shield and shelter for John. Move John to his maximum lower stance and place him under the middle of a truck. Then, shoot enemy in the legs with silenced guns. Some soldiers may fire at you, but will instead hit the truck. Never fire at soldiers very far away because they see you below the truck and can shoot you.
- While hidden near an alarm button, shoot a bullet at a soldier to alert him. Then, aim at the alarm button. One by one, all the soldiers in the surrounding area will approach and try to press the button. Shoot and kill them before they activate the alarm.
- Use the binoculars and adjust the pointer so that the enemy is in the center of the view. Close the binoculars and press [Left Ctrl] to hit the enemy once and kill them.
- If an alarm goes off, find a location where you can hide but still have all the enemies visible. Shoot them one by one using a silent gun.
- Make the best use of the thermal camera. You can surprise and kill enemies through the wall.
