Hint: Abbatoir: Ammunition:
When you are in the room with a guard sitting at the
desk that must be interrogated, behind the laptop is a machine
gun. Near that there is a lot of 5.56mm ammunition for your SC-20K.
Hint: Abbatoir: Easy kills:
Before dropping into the freezer, while in the ceiling
use your thermal goggles and take out the three guards.
Hint: Abbatoir: Kill Grinko easily:
Equip a sticky shocker to your SC20K and shoot Grinko
with it. The sticky shocker will kill Grinko with one hit.
Hint: Abbatoir: Protecting hostages:
When you enter the basement where the hostages are
held, notice that there are two or three doors. Equip your Wall
Mine and place them in front of the entrances. Do not place the
Wall Mines near the entrance to which the turrets are placed.
Instead, place them near the main entrance to the basement. Sections
of partition of the animal pens will be exposed or seen when the
guards enter, and they will through the middle and left entrances.
Place the Wall Mines on the partitions enough to be in the middle
of the entrance (in length) or in the close range of the door.
Once they are set, get ready to cut down three guards. This is
the best way to conserve ammunition if you are low. You only need
to place two, because the guards will not enter through the third
door. This will take out the first wave of guards, leaving you
to kill only three of them. You have to do this before you talk
to the Chinese hostage, otherwise you will be killed. Note: It
is possible to kill Grinko with a well-timed Gas Grenade if you
are out of or are low on ammunition.
When you shut down the guns in the room, also turn the IFF off.
This was what prevented "friendly fire" from the turrets.
Also, place a mine on the wall at the end of the middle lane opposite
to where the guns are placed. After this, talk to the hostages.
As soon as you hear the enemies coming in, go back between the
turrets and reactivate the guns, but do not enable the IFF again.
The Wall Mine in the middle lane should take out any immediate
threat to your position. The guns will kill anyone going down
the side with better accuracy than the mines. It also helps to
hurl a grenade over the wall that the mine was placed on to increase
the carnage inflicted on the oncoming enemies. After all his men
are killed, Grinko will hide in the corner. Use your stealth to
creep up behind him, for a well placed head shot or a sticky shocker.
Hint: Abattoir: Endgame:
After you have disabled the antenna and picked the
lock to enter the building, open the door directly in front of
you, Pick up all three Wall Mines downstairs. You will also need
all the Frag Grenades to kill Grinko easily. Collect and save
them carefully. At the endgame, you are in the barn just before
you meet the hostages. Set up booby traps with the three Wall
Mines: Put one on the wall behind the left entrance, another one
on the left white separator wall facing the hostages (in the middle
of the barn), and the last one on the separator wall first half
through the aisle that leads to the door to the American hostages.
Set up the Wall Mines in the reverse order just described, since
you still have to move back to the middle isle to disable the
turrets. After you talk to the Chinese, you can take a nice comfortable
sniper position in front of the middle aisle; everyone trying
to kill the Americans on your right will be blown up.
Hint: Abbattoir: Items:
When you start the mission and kill the first three
men, go through the door or over the wall. The room above your
head where the first spotlight is located has the following items:
Flare, Frag Grenade, Sticky Shocker, 5.56 ammo, 5.57ammo, and
perhaps a med kit. To get them, kill all four guards in this area.
The only way up there is your intelligence and training skills
-- stack the eight drums on top of each other in front of room.
Note: Remember use your heat-vision goggles to see the mines.
After the first save point, you are in a place where you have
to watch out for snipers and land mines. Take out the man on the
ground. Then, take out the man on the sniping post to your right
with your SC20K. Then, look at the far end of the area. You should
see a long balcony. There is another sniper walking back and forth
over there. Take him out with a headshot. Next, make your way
over to the dumpster. Do not let the spotlight shine on you. There
is another sniper inside the first sniping post. He will not appear
unless he hears you or the spotlight is on you. There will be
a stack of barrels. Get on top of them. Face the sniping post
and jump towards it. You should grab on to the edge. Shimmy to
your left until you turn the corner. Get up there. Quietly sneak
through the doorway with the curtains over it. Sneak up behind
the guard and knock him out. In that room should be some ammo
for your pistol and SC20K, a flare, a computer (data stick), and
Hint. Abattoir: Land mines:
All land mines can be seen in the dark with your thermal
imaging. They will flash about every other second. Use thermal
imaging when going through the cold misty areas where the meat
is kept. This helps you to see guards before they can see you.
Hint: Abattoir: Hiding bodies:
Knock out the first set of guards and go to the water
tanks. Switch an object on. The gates outside will be open and
you can hide the three bodies in there.
Hint: Chinese Embassy: Part one:
Sneak past the first few guards. Do not waste time
on them: When you start the level, you have to jump a fence to
get inside an alley. Run until just before the lights at the end
of the alley, then continue crouched. Even if the guards spot
you, there is no need to stop. Continue behind the fire to the
ladder in the dark corner of the room. Once you are up, you can
easily knock out the guard below by jumping on top of him. Then,
continue and sneak past the two guards ahead. You have to time
your sneak carefully. Once you get past them, use the same principle;
move through the courtyard in the shadow up to the fence, then
continue next to it to get inside the little yard in front of
you. Once inside, leap down the manhole. Do everything previously
described without stopping, except when you sneak past the two
guards in the alley. If you are not in a particular hurry, you
can also pick up the medkit after you knocked out the guard. It
is located on the balcony on your right.
Hint: Chinese Embassy: Trailing enemies
in the sewers:
When you first enter the sewers, equip your smoke grenade
and walk down the path that you are supposed to take. When the
three enemies appear, position yourself close by and shoot the
smoke grenade in the middle of all of them. Wait until the smoke
clears and continue on. This is easier than trailing them one
Make sure that the three soldiers are walking on water, then shoot
a Sticky Shocker on the water. The soldiers will get electrocuted.
Make sure Sam is on a platform before doing this.
Hint: Chinese Embassy: Finding the CIA
After you have finished through the sewers and are
hanging on a ladder after a checkpoint, there are two guards.
One is close to you, but standing in one place facing away from
you. The other one is moving back and forth away, and towards
you. The easiest way is when the moving guard turns around and
goes behind the curtains for it to be dark, instead of waiting
for the moving guard to walk away. Climb the ladder you are on,
crouch down, and slowly walk to the ladder. Once you have finished
climbing that ladder, those guards will not see you as long as
you are still up there. However, when you are climbing the ladder,
the moving guard may or may not see you. If you did the "go
behind the curtain" plan, when the moving guard turns around
and walks, immediately walk slowly while crouched to the ladder
and climb it. The moving guard should not be able to see you while
you are climbing it, because he is turned around and far away
from you. Once you are at the top, you will be on wood. Try not
to make any noise while up there. While you are up there, you
will find a pipe to climb across. Note: You do not need to put
your legs up there while you are climbing. When you get across,
there is more wood that you will land on. While you are on that
wood, there will be a dead end and an open window for you to climb
in. Go through the open window. If you need too see better in
there, turn on your night vision goggles. From this room, do not
worry about silence. Just climb the pole up, and while you are
climbing you might hear a squeaky sound. Do not worry about it
and just keep climbing. Once you are up there, you will find your
CIA contact standing behind a large red sign in front of an open
door. Talk to him, and he will explain everything there.
Hint: Chinese Embassy: Code numbers:
In part two, after the checkpoint you will come down
the trap door to a tunnel with the guard. You must to enter three
code numbers following a guard using your thermal goggles. The
codes are: "1456", "1834", and "7921".
Hint: Chinese Embassy: Big room:
Go through the doors and kill the soldier to the right
by shooting a Sticky Camera at the white woman statue that you
see once you open the door. When you are in the view of it, make
a whistling noise. When the guard gets directly in front of the
camera, knock him unconscious. Then, press R1 to leave
that view and shoot the unconscious guard, so he will not be woken
up by another soldier. If you shoot him, a commander will come
down the stairs to the left to investigate the noise. He is armed
with a Czech. Shoot him, and there will not be anymore enemies
for the time being. Next, jump onto the ledge directly to right
of you, where the vases are located. Once on there, shoot the
vases with your pistol. You have to do this twice before they
are gone. Disable the turret and jump onto the ledge of the upper
floor. Once there, shoot the light above you, and then turn off
the IFF mode of the turret, so that when the two soldiers appear,
they will be killed. Shoot out all the lights except the ones
on the bottom floor, then jump onto the pipe that hangs above
you by the turret. Shoot out all the lights that shine on the
flags and wait for the commander and the other soldier to go over
to the retina eye scanner. The commander will open the door for
him, then will stand there alone facing the turret by the stairs.
Shoot your pistol around where the turret is located, and he will
investigate. When he leaves, get off the pipe then disable the
turret. Slowly go to the corner of where the turret is by the
door. Wait for the commander to return. When he is over the retina
eye scanner, slowly go down the first flight of stairs and shoot
a Sticky Camera in the corner where you were just at. Make a noise,
and he will go to that corner. He will wait there and look at
it, but will not stay there for long. Sneak up behind him and
grab him. Force cooperate him to use the retina eye scanner, which
will open the door. Then, take him to a corner and knock him out.
If desired, you can shoot him. Next, go to the door which will
automatically open and shoot the soldier at the computer. Use
the computer and retrieve the data stick. Go over the far window,
go up onto the table, crouch down, and slide open the window.
Then, walk outside of the window and drop down to the overhang.
Drop down to the ground to finish.
Hint: Chinese Embassy: Man on the moon:
After you have knocked out the first two guards, look
up at the moon as you continue. From a certain angle, you can
see a face on the moon. You can also use a Sticker Camera to see
it from the correct angle if needed.
Hint: Chinese Embassy: Shortcut:
After you climb the ladder, instead of jumping down
wait until the man starts to go away and towards the wood bridge.
Climb the ladder quickly before the guard sees you, then jump
on to the pole and hand-over-hand to the other side. It may help
to crouch. There is an bonus med-kit on the other side.
After the third save point, you must follow a truck and laser
mic a person in the window and a car. When you are in the shadows
when you first start after the save point, there are some walls
that are close enough for you to do a split jump. Note: If you
laser mic the car or person too soon when he is talking, Sam will
have failed the mission. After you laser mic the person in the
window, climb the pipe, jump down, talk to Coen, and you have
completed the mission.
Hint: Chinese Embassy: Hidden ammunition:
After you zip line, instead of going to the path with
the ladder, go the other way. You can knock out the guard or just
bypass him. There will be some ammunition for your pistol on the
Hint: Chinese Embassy, Part 2:
Once you get to the hallway with the lockers, look
into the closet for a med kit. Then, go through the door into
the stairwell and silently go up the steps. There will be a guard
with his back to you and another one pacing in front of a desk.
There is also a camera on the wall across from the first guard.
First, turn out the light in the stairwell. Then, sneak up behind
the guard and grab him. Time this so that the other guard is going
away from you and will not see what you are doing. Then, walk
him while he is conscious into the dark corner of the room on
the left. If you go all the way into the corner, you will not
be seen by the camera at anytime. Knock out this guard. Next,
shoot a distraction camera toward the wall directly under the
camera or toward the darkness. Use the camera to make noise and
when the guard is close enough, knock him out. Then, go down the
hall and through the first door. Quietly go to the doorway. Use
your night vision to see two guards in the beds. Shoot a distraction
camera under the bed toward the head of the guard on the left
and trigger the gas. Then, as the second guard gets out of bed,
snipe him in the head. On the bunk on the far left is a med kit.
On a table between the two middle bunks is pistol ammunition and
a frag granade. Go up to the door to the room next to you, but
not into it so you do not trigger an event. Us the thermal goggles
and shoot out the light. Then, go back out the same way you entered
and shoot out all the lights in the hall. Switch to night vision,
open the second door, and two guards will start down the hall.
Move back into the hall directly across from the double doors.
Wait for the guard to open the keypad door. Once he moves just
inside the doors, shoot the guard with the machine gun in the
head (with the pistol if you have enough ammunition). Go just
inside the doorway until the first guard goes upstairs. This will
get you into the room without using the thermal goggle trick.
Hint: Chinese Embassy, Part 2: Main hall:
The main hall is a lot easier than you may think. Open
the keypad locked door using your thermals, then move to the side.
Wait until the door closes, then jump up onto the small shelter
behind the door. Be careful at this point -- you must walk around
the vase on the top so you do not attract the attention of the
guard hiding behind the automated turret. When you have done this,
you are directly above him. Do a drop attack on him to knock him
out, then hide him underneath the shelter behind the gun, as he
will be well-hidden there. Turn off the IFF on the turret, then
jump back up onto the top of the shelter. Next, jump through the
gap in the railings to get behind the automated turret on the
landing. Also turn off the IFF on that turret then turn around
and jump onto the pipe hanging above. Move behind the Burmese
flag to hide. Do all this before the guard appears. By doing this,
you will be hidden and the guard can be disposed of quickly by
the turret. However, do not go any further. If you do, the game
will continue and you will not have a chance to hide the body.
Go back, deactivate the turret, then hide the body in a darkened
room behind a door to the left, slightly further along the landing.
Once he is hidden, go back to the pipe that hangs behind the smaller
Burmese and the larger Chinese flags. Jump up onto it and go along
it. Do not crouch -- you are in fact better hidden from the two
guards that walk along the other landing if you do not crouch.
Once the colonel has let the guard in the retinal scanner-locked
door, wait a moment while the guard enters and the colonel positions
himself in front of the door. Then, continue along the pipe, bring
your legs up when you need to get over the railings, then get
ready. Bring your legs down first. Quickly press Triangle
followed by Circle, otherwise the colonel will hear you
drop and you will die unless you knock him out. Grab him and use
him to open the retinal scanner. Take him inside and use him as
cover to shoot the other guard already in the room. Knock the
colonel out and hide his and the guard's bodies between the plant
and the file cabinet in the small corridor.
Hint: Chinese Embassy, Part 2: Kill sleeping
Use the following trick to easily kill the sleeping
guards and get more time for the keypad. First, creep into the
sleeping quarters with night vision on. Go along the first bed,
which should have a medi-pak on it. After picking it up, move
right until you are as far as you can go, next to the sleeping
guard's bed. Then, place a wall mine on the wall, creep back as
silently as possible, and go through the door until you can just
see the wall mine through the scope of the SC-20K. Shoot the mine
to instantly kill the guards. Do not worry if you do not hear
a scream -- they are defiantly dead. Next, go back the way you
came until you are at the double doors with the keypad. Shoot
out the end two lights. Note: If you miss, use the thermal vision
to get an easier target. Then, go back around past the bonfire
and through the door at the other end. Wait until the two guards
go through the door and quickly do the thermal vision trick.
Hint: Chinese Embassy, Part 2: Easy door:
After you endure the guards sleeping, go to the door.
Use the optic cable. The men will open the keypad locked door.
Make a mad dash and open the door. Go through the keypad door.
You will fight three men. Kill them, then go upstairs to the right.
Dash through the autogun and use a retinal scanner.
STEPHEN M. Demers.
Hint: Chinese Embassy, Part 2: Gundam
When you are in the warehouses, you can find a
Gundam toy box. After you go through the second of the thermal
goggle keypads, you will be in a small supply room. If you look
at the blue box standing up on the table with the 5.72mm bullets,
you will see a picture of Gundam Epyon from the anime Gundam
Hint: CIA Headquarters: Final four checkpoints:
Non-lethal ammunition is very important in the CIA
HQ. You need to conserve it as best you can. The following steps
start at the first place you should use it: After you enter the
weapons room and disable the turret gun, take the elevator up
and save at the checkpoint. Enter the room directly ahead of you.
Once you are inside the room, stick to the right wall and sneak
around back of the guard sitting at the computer. Behind the desk
is a walkway which will allow you to sneak quietly around the
room without confrontation. When you get towards the back door,
wait for a guard to leave and then creep into the next room towards
Daugherty's office. Once the area is clear, begin your walk towards
the security camera at the end of the hall, then save the game.
Wait until the camera turns away from you and use the first of
your non-lethal ammunition (either the sticky shocker or foil
ring) and knock out the guard sitting underneath the camera. When
the camera turns away again, run underneath it and take aim at
Daugherty, who is working with the soda machine. Shoot him with
your second non-lethal weapon. Your headset will tell you it is
a mistake, but it is easier this way. Drag the guard from the
chair back to Daugherty's office --beware of the camera. Once
you have hidden him. go back to Daugherty's body, again mindful
of the camera. Grab his body and make your way for the door at
the end of the hallway. Keep to the right side, crouched so that
you can sneak past the break room window and then down to the
keypad door. The code is "0614". This will bring you
out to the smoking area, where there is still one guard out on
the terrace. Again, use non-lethal weapon to knock him out and
then hide his body. Then, pickup Daugherty again and bring him
down to the next door and your final checkpoint. At this point
you should have more than enough ammunition to shoot the four
guards and the engineer non-lethally and easily escape the level.
Hint: CIA Headquarters: No power in the
If after entering the weapons room and disabling the
turret gun you find that the elevator up to the top floor (Daugherty's
office) has no power, you need to go back to the main server room
and complete your objective by accessing the main server computer
twice. This will create a new objective of breaking into to Daugherty's
office and also restore the power to the elevator in the weapons
Hint: CIA Headquarters: Bypass first guard:
At the start of the level you will be outside. Turn
left and follow the fence. Eventually, you will reach a wall,
and a fence will be on your left side. Climb the fence and go
around until you find an opening. Go into the ventilation system.
You will reach a checkpoint. When you drop, try to make a little
noise so that the guard will start looking for you, then hide.
When he stops looking for you, he will remain in one location.
Go over to the fence behind him very quietly. Climb the fence
and get to the other side. If done correctly, he will not notice
you. Do not climb down. Instead, climb directly above him and
Hint: CIA Headquarters: Knock out guard:
if you get seen by the guard with a gun, do the following.
First knock out a person and put them near the door inside the
room. Then, run flat out but be sure you see him following you.
Open the door and turn out the lights. Wait in the corner on the
right (to him). Wait and he will call in that he found a body
and turn around. This is the best time to grab him. If you are
found near the soda machines, grab a man with a security jacket.
They are generally unarmed and just run away. You will then face
the man with the gun. Note: Make sure the hostage is facing the
gunman; he will not take any chance of hitting that man.
You are not armed with a gun, and you must therefore knock out
guards. Instead of sneaking up on them, run up to them with any
weapon holstered and press R1. You will hit them with your
elbow. Do it again and they will fall to the ground, knocked out.
Hint: CIA Headquarters: Get rid of three
guards at once:
First, go to the security office and flick the lights
off. Then, crouch down and go in the corner near the door. When
the guard enters to turn the lights on, knock him out. Move his
body away, then flick the lights on and off. Hide in the same
place. Wait for awhile and another guard will appear to turn on
the lights. Do the same to him as done to the previous guard.
Flick the lights a third time and the last guard will appear.
You have to be careful with him, as he can see you in the corner.
Knock him out quickly.
Hint: CIA Headquarters: Shortcut:
After you have came through the fan and reach the first
checkpoint, an engineer will walk past. After he has left, run
and jump over the fence. Knock him out, then hide him in the dark.
Do not run round the corner, as there is a camera at the other
end. Carefully sneak past it and you will reach a set of stairs.
Go up the stairs, but be cautious as there are two guards up there.
Go into the first room on your right. Pick up the items and go
through the opposite door to bypass half the level.
Hint: CIA Headquarters: Items:
Get to the first floor, at the intersection with the
sign that reads "Server Room >, and Security Station 1
<". After you get the Data Stick from the room that the
man appears from, go down the hallway until you get to the intersection.
Turn left and go down that hall until you turn right and get to
the door. Enter the door and you will be in the security station.
The guard should be talking to a passing guard. Wait until he
is done. As soon as he finishes, sneak up behind him and grab
him. Make sure no one sees this. After this is done, drag him
into the dark corner near the door and knock him out. Go through
the door in the far corner and you will be in a closet. In there,
there is a Med Kit, Sticky Shockers, and some other items. When
you are done, go through the door you came in, then go back down
the hall to the intersection again, being mindful of security
patrols. If you see a security guard by himself, grab him, knock
him out, and hide him in the shadows. Down the hall, there is
a closet with some gadgets in it. When you are done with this
hallway, go through the door with the keypad on it.
Use the following trick to get more Stick Shockers and Cameras.
After the door you follow Dougherty through, go to your left.
There is a door marked "UFO Sightings Office". Pick
the lock and go in. To your right is a keypad door. Directly ahead
is a computer. Use the computer to get the code for the door.
On the inside are three Sticky Shockers and three Sticky Cameras.
Hint: CIA Headquarters: Alternate entry
When you must infiltrate the CIA complex to find a
mole, an alternate entry route into the building is to sneak around
to the ventilation systems as usual. However, instead of climbing
the fence and entering through the disabled fan, sneak by the
two guards near the van talking to the civilian by following the
darkened front wall area near them. You will soon reach a drainage
pipe going up the wall. Quietly scale this pipe and get onto the
large outcropping above the van. In the crouched position, walk
to an open vent in the front of the building and enter. You will
need to open a trap door and drop down on the inside of the CIA
building on the other side of the front doors. Stay up on top
of the doors and wait for the guard to appear. Then, drop down
on him and knock him out. Drag his body to the darkened area off
to your left then follow that wall to the small counter where
a guard stands. Stand up at the left edge of the counter near
the wall and pick up the pop can. He should not notice you if
you are quiet and still in the dark. Throw the can backward into
the general area from where you started off. The guard will walk
towards the sound and you may sneak by him. Go through the metal
detectors. Enter the room on the right for some health and Sticky
Shockers, or go directly into the other set of metal detectors
to get a checkpoint. This will put you past two guards, a maintenance
man, and a camera, which you would have had to pass if you had
chosen to go through the ventilation.
Use the following route instead of going through the ventilation
system. When you first start this level, go to the cage the has
the fan in it. Do not jump the fence. Go to the right of it and
turn on your night vision goggles. You should see a pole walk
to it. Be extra quiet, as there are three guards outside a van
talking. Climb the pole, and you should see a vent open. Go through
it, turn left, and open the trap hole. Go through this. It will
take you straight to the main hall. You will land on a bookcase.
Go straight (or to the left side of the hall). Go straight to
the main counter. Quietly jump the counter and knock out the guard.
Go through the door and knock out the guard in this room. Go out
the door to the right. Take a quick left and go through the inactive
Hint: CIA Headquarters: Entering UFO office:
Towards the end of the mission is a locked office with
a "UFO Sightings" sign on the side. Inside the office
is a keypad locked door. To gain access to this room, read the
data stick file found in the computer in the office. There are
several Sticky Cams and Sticky Shockers inside.
When you are about to kidnap Mitchell Dougherty in the smoking
area, just past the door with the key code "0614" is
a locked UFO department door. Use the lock pick to open it. Inside
is another locked door and a computer. Access the computer to
get a coded file. It has a number at the end of the data stick.
Use it to unlock the door. Unside are three Sticky Cams and three
Sticky Shocker. After you do that and return to the hall, the
alarm always sounds.
Hint: Defense Ministry: Getting to the
After interrogating the driver and heading back upstairs,
save at the checkpoint and view the intermission sequence of the
window in the courtyard opening. Walk out on the balcony and turn
left. Jump on the rain gutter on the wall. Move along the gutter
towards the open window. If an alarm goes off, you have not properly
hidden your dead bodies. Move back through the level and throw
all your dead bodies into dark corners.
Hint: Defense Ministry: Alternate way to
Instead of falling on the balcony and sliding down
the pipe when the level first begins, turn to the left. You will
find one of those things you can rappel down. You can repel down
and into the building.
Hint: Defense Ministry: Nikoladze's Office:
Once you rappel through the glass window and kill the
guard, access the computer in the far right corner of the level
first. Then, access the main (Nikoladze's) computer closest to
the window. Immediately run back to the window and drop out, but
stay near to the ledge so that you will grab hold of it and hang
out with the window. Guards will enter and search the office.
They will not see you if you remain hanging out the window. They
will clear the room, then leave. You can now access the computer
again (as instructed by HQ). Then, proceed with caution when reaching
your extraction point.
Hint: Defense Ministry: Hack into computer:
Use the following trick to hack into a computer without
getting detected. Start by rappelling down the building as usual,
until you see a guard. Then, take a clear shot at his head. Once
this is done, break into the window, grab his grenade, and shoot
out all the lights in the room. Then, check the computer. When
the guards come running in, fall out the window that you came
in through. Hang until they all are gone. When the shocking music
stops, get up and check the computer again. Finally, go out the
door and turn left. Go through the door that was previously jammed.
Run to the bottom and grab the medikit; then go through the door.
Quickly turn around to face the door. Throw the grenade to kill
the guard pursuing you. Make sure you are far enough away to avoid
injury. Hop on the pipe and slide down to the bottom. If you are
quick enough, you can see how the guard was killed by your partner.
Hint: Defense Ministry: Rooftop:
After you access Nikoladze's computer, you must go
out and hang from the window. After they all leave, if you only
knocked out the guard when you came in, you must either kill him
or knock him out again. Quickly go back to the computer to gain
the information. Then, you must leave the room. Go out the door
and go to your left. At this point you do not need to be silent.
Go to the door that you could not open previously to find a flight
of stairs. Go down them. Pick up the medical kit and use it if
needed. Open the door, then jump over the railing to your left.
Immediately run to the elevator shaft at the far end of the roof
as fast as you can. Do the same thing as you did with Nikoladze's
window -- hang down. A guard will appear and investigate. Do not
worry -- just keep hanging. He will leave in a moment. After he
leaves, wait a second to make sure he is far enough. Climb back
up, then turn around. On the opposite side is a pole which you
can go down. Jump across and grab it. When you go down, your van
will be towards your left. Your van help will kill a guard. Go
up and talk to him.
When at the top of the roof at the Defense Ministry -- while hanging
from the elevator shaft, you do not need to wait for him to leave
to shimmy down the pole. You can drop from beam to beam until
you reach the bottom of the shaft. While hanging from the top,
drop, then catch the next ledge/beam. This will take you to the
garage where your extraction point is located.
Hint: Defense Ministry: Clean head shots:
After you Laser-Mic the conversation between Masse
and Grinko in the glass elevator, kill the three guards in the
courtyard and climb the skirting into the South Wing. You will
reach the room with the elevator. Hide on the left side of it,
aiming your pistol at head level towards the elevator. Two guards
will run out. Kill them, but do not waste your time hiding their
bodies. Get into the elevator that they came from and go to the
seventh floor. There will be a glass door with a keypad on either
side of the hall. Go to the one on the right and move back and
forth in front of the door. The soldier in there will see you
and run to the door. Back up so you will not block the door. Let
him unlock the door, and as he is opening it, get your sights
on his head. It will not move after the door is opened. The second
the door is open all the way -- fire. Do the same on the other
glass door. This is a good strategy to get clean head shots.
Hint: Defense Ministry: Get access to Retinal
After you get into the room with the cooks and are
hiding in a crouched position, do not use the "throw the
bottle into the freezer technique". You will need both of
them later. After the soldier leaves the room with the cooks,
stay in a crouched position and slowly move along the left side
of the table that you were hiding behind. Come up behind the first
cook you encounter, in the white shirt. From there, grab him and
go into the human shield position with your pistol extended. The
other cook may or may not notice that you are there. Shoot the
cook that is washing the dishes (or running scared for the alarm).
Knock out the cook that you are holding and carry them both into
the freezer, as far back as you can go. Turn out the freezer light,
then put on your night vision goggles. Turn off the kitchen light
and open the door. As quickly as possible, run across the room
and hide behind the open door. The guard will enter to turn on
the light. As he stops to turn on the light, shoot him in the
head. Hide him behind the counter. Next, run out of the open doors
and over to the stairwell until you hear the music that indicates
that someone saw or heard you. Run back into the room and hide
behind the same door as before. The guard will come to turn the
light on as before. Do the same thing as you did previously; shoot
him in the head. Hide him behind the counter and go back into
the kitchen. Get one of the glass bottles by the open window,
on the table, and run back through the kitchen, through the adjacent
room, and through the open doors. It is now safe to turn off your
night vision. Note the guard by the locked door across this huge
room. Walk over to the balcony and hum the bottle at him. Sometimes
you will knock him out, sometimes you do not. If you do not, you
will hear him say either "that's unusual" or "what
the Hell...?". Either way, go once more into the room in
which you killed the two guards. Hide once more behind the open
door by the light switch. It may take him awhile to get up there,
but he will also meet the same fate as his two comrades. Shoot
him in the head as he turns on the light. That eliminates the
guard by the door, thus decreasing the chance of an alarm going
off while you take out the second guard in that room. This will
be a little trickier. Go out of the room and down the stairs onto
the second level. After you get to the bottom of the stairs, go
straight into the corner that you are facing. Go to the railing
and run back and forth across it until you hear the music that
indicates you have been sighted again. Hide back in the corner
and wait for him to climb up the stairs. Once he gets up there,
you have two choices. Either sneak up behind him and knock him
out, or shoot him in the head. Now that you have cleared the room
of the two guards, go back up the stairs and into the kitchen.
Get the last bottle, exit the kitchen, go back into the room,
and down the stairs. Use the computer until you hear Lambert talking.
He will tell you that a Colonel is coming and some other things.
Hide under the stairs to the left of the computer desk, in the
dark by the wall. Wait for the Colonel to get down the stairs
and sit in his desk. Throw your bottle at the wall in front and
to the left of the Colonel. He will go to see what happened. Sneak
up and grab him, thus giving you access to the Retinal Scanner.
When you get into the kitchen through the window, let the cooks
and the officer see you as you go into the freezer. Shoot out
the lights before they come in there and crouch behind the last
shelf. Aim your gun at the officer and shoot him in the head.
The cooks will crouch and cover their heads. Grab them and knock
them out. Then, leave the kitchen through the door and sneak up
behind the man on the staircase. Knock him out, pick him up, and
hide him in the room before the staircase. Go back out and let
the men see you. Hide in the dark by the room you were at. When
he gets close enough, shoot him. Hide his body in the room you
were hiding by. Then, crouch and sneak down the stairs very slowly
with your gun drawn. Kill the man by the stairs by grabbing him
from behind and knock him out. Hide his body somewhere. Sneak
up behind the guard by the elevator and shoot him in the head,
then hide his body. Type on the computer here then hide behind
a pillar before the captain arrives. When the captain sits behind
the computer, sneak up and grab him. Bring him over to the Retinal
Scanner, and then follow the instructions that appear on screen.
When done, knock him out, then shoot him in the head. Go through
the door, but do not get seen by the camera or you will have to
start all over again.
Hint: Defense Ministry: Hang on gutter
After interrogating the driver, you are supposed to
go out to the balcony in the courtyard and hang on the gutter.
To do this without setting off the alarm, take the two guards
that you killed or knocked out in the hallway into the room. Hide
them, then turn off the light. You should now be able to make
it to the other window without setting off the alarm.
Hint: Defense Ministry: Get rid of guards:
When you are in the courtyard, instead of using the
laser mic on the elevator, quickly run over to the double doors
on the other side. Use a disposable pick on it. Go inside, and
the three guards will not do anything to you. Quickly get a head
shot on all of them, then run outside and use the laser mic as
usual. If done correctly and quickly enough, the doors will open
and the guards will be dead, allowing you to continue without
When you start, rappel down the wall and jump into the window.
Then, quickly run to the edge of the bookshelf and press against
it. The guard will walk between the bookshelves to get a book.
Wait until he leaves, but do not run out yet. He will get up and
walk to the wall north of your entrance point. When he goes to
sit down, crouch and sneak between the table and the bookshelf.
Sneak up and hit him, or grab him first. The camera will not pick
Use the following trick to eliminate the elevator guards easily.
After you have intercepted Grinko's conversation and are in the
first room with an elevator, notice that there is an icon above
the door that reveals what floor the two guards are on. Once they
on the second level, run to the door just to the left of the elevator.
Enter it, flip the light switch to your left, then go as far back
into the room as possible. Then, turn and face the door with your
gun pointed at head level. You should hear the "you have
been detected" music by now because the guards saw the open
door. The door will close before they get there. When they open
the door, they will not be able to see you if you stand still.
When the crosshairs of your gun are pointed on the first guard's
head, take the shot. Remain where you are, as the second guard
may not do the same thing. If the door closes and he still has
not approached it, you will have to open the door yourself for
him. As soon as you have opened it, get back into position. He
will come into sight and also will not notice you. Then, take
After you have climbed to the roof above Nikolade's office, start
to repel down the wall but stop just above the windows. There
is a guard patrolling the inside of this office. You can kick
through the window and enter, but you will then have to deal with
the guard. Instead, stay above the windows and shoot the far right
window out. The guard will go to each window. When he comes to
the far right window, you can shoot him in the head with your
pistol, resulting in a one shot kill. As long as you stay above
the window, he will not see you. Make sure to grab his satchel
and equip the frag grenade before you tap Nikoladze's computer.
When the three guards come to investigate, hide behind the desk
to the right and throw the grenade at the doorway, quickly taking
care of them.
Hint: Defense Ministry: East wing:
Once you have rappelled down the wall and into the
east wing, sneak up behind the guard and knock him out. Put him
on the balcony. Take out the camera, take the data stick, then
proceed to the door. Open the door and crouch behind it. You should
see one guard patrolling and another standing still. Wait until
the patrolling guard is walking away, then sneak into the shadowed
part of the hallway. Wait until he is walking away again and open
the door to your left. Run up the stairs to the medkit. The guards
should not notice you. Proceed down the stairwell by crouching
under cameras and shooting lights out. Save your checkpoint at
the bottom. Sneak past the first camera and stick to the wall
on your left. Take out the other camera near the car and watch
from the shadows as the driver inspects the camera, then walks
off. Go around the corner to the pillar at the back right and
hide on its right side. The guard will return and, after awhile,
start smoking. Sneak up behind him, drag him into the dark, and
interrogate him. Go back the way you came, in the shadows. Near
the door where you entered should be a guard. Stay in the shadows,
sneak up behind him, knock him out, and hide his body in the elevator
shaft. Sneak past the camera and go back up the stairwell. there
should only be one guard in the hall. Knock him out and then hide
his body in the darkness near where you acquired the medkit.
Hint: Defense Ministry: Secret area:
In the beginning of the Defense Ministry mission, after
you have gone through the first room and are in the hallway with
the two guards (one patrolling, the other on the left side of
the hall facing away from you), crouch and sneak into the shadows
on the left side of the wall. Go into the room on the left, behind
the stationary guard. Walk straight through the door, then up
the wooden planks. There will be a medkit on the wall -- take
it. Turn back towards the wooden planks and look up. You should
see a metal girder. Get close to the wall on the left and do a
double jump to get on that girder. Once standing on it, there
should be another girder in front of you. Jump and get on it.
Then, turn around and you should see yet another girder. Jump
on it. Directly in front of you should be a medkit and a disposable
pick on a well lit platform. Jump to it, pick up the items, and
turn around again. Run to the girder (you do not have to jump).
If done correctly, you should grab onto it. Release the girder
and immediately hold Left Analog-stick Up to grab the next
Hint: Defense Ministry: Body disposal location:
The following is a perfect place to dispose of a single
body. The reason you can only do this with one person is because
there is only one person in the room. Make your way to the point
where you have to hack into a computer. After you repel down the
window and kill the guard, pick him up and walk towards the window.
When you barely start to fall off, pull out your weapon to quickly
drop the guard . This is an easier and quicker way to drop a body.
If done correctly, the guard will fall out the window onto the
ground, where no one can find him.
Hint: Defense Ministry: Smoking car:
At the beginning when you talk to the contact, in the
back there is a car. Put one your Diversion Cameras on the white
box on the hood of the car and aim it towards the sky. Press Gas,
then Triangle and it will appear as if the car is on fire.
Hint: Defense Ministry: Make Irving Lambert
When you go down to the car parking for the first time,
your object is to interrogate Grinko's Driver. Grab him, and after
you have interrogated him knock him out. Lambert will tell you
a new objective. After he has finished talking take out your SC
pistol and shoot Grinko's driver in the head. Then, start going
back upstairs. Lambert will contact you and say, "Fisher
what was that?" and Sam will reply, "He was a bad guy".
Then Lambert will say, "Don't do that anymore, it's sloppy
Hint: GFO Oil Rig: Body disposal location:
When you are supposed to get the briefcase, wait until
the man runs all the way back where the boat was located. He will
be crouched down. Hit him with your shoulder and pick him up.
It is important not to kill him yet. Go to the edge and drop him
into the water. You can hear him drowning.
Hint: GFO Oil Rig: Get briefcase more easily:
When you reach the end of the level, shoot the mercenary
once, instead of grabbing him and interrogating him. Get the briefcase
to complete the mission.
Hint: Kalinatek: Bypassing guards:
In the Kalinatek building, when you overhear two guards
talk about gun turrets and wall mines in a hallway, open the door
next to the glass wall. Use your SC-20K in sniper mode and shoot
the wall mine on the transparent wall. This should take out the
two guards that are talking. Switch off the hallway lights and
a third guard should come around to inspect the flames. Snipe
him down, pick up any satchels, and make your way to the elevator.
Hint: Kalinatek: Taking out guards:
After you have gone down the elevator without electricity,
Lambert will chime in with some intel about programmers behind
wall mines. While he is talking, quickly duck out of the elevator,
crouch, and run towards the tree to your left. If done correctly,
you will be there before the two guards who turn on the lights
and shoot the computers enter. Stay in that corner and use your
SC-20K's sniper scope to aim close to the edge of the hallway,
so that when the guard comes around that corner you can shoot
him easily. The second guard will appear long after that; do not
move until he arrives. When you are through with them, take the
fragmentation grenades off the coffee table in the waiting area
directly in front of you. Continue down the hallway, but do not
exit it. You will see two guards approaching you from in front
and slightly to your right down a hall. Also, notice the wall
mine right by the doorway. When they get close to it, shoot a
round with your sniper scope at the mine. If it hits, it will
kill both guards.
Hint: Kalinatek: Shortcut:
About one fifth of the way through the level, after
jumping from the crane, you will reach a pair of double glass
automatic doors. A guard approaches as you get near the door.
Kill him. Get his satchel. It has a Datastick with the code 97531.
Go through the double doors, and on your right is a keypad locked
door. Enter the 97531 code and go through the door. It leads to
an office. Go through the next door in that room. The lights are
off. Crouch down, put on your night vision, and go as slow as
possible. There is glass on the floor. Look across the room and
you will see a open ventilation shaft. Cross the room as slowly
as possible, or you will alert a guard. Enter the ventilation
shaft and go along it. You will enter the room on the other side
of the locked door that you can see through the metal detectors
from the double automatic doors. By using this shortcut you will
bypass four guards, saving valuable ammunition and health. [Screenshot 1]
Hint: Kalinatek: Extra ammunition:
Once you have finished with the bomb and go to the
stage room, there will be two men. One of them has bullets for
your SC-20K gun.
Hint: Nuclear Power Plant: Ammunition and
Once you go past the lock pick door, climb the pipe
next to the door. Only climb the first pipe, then fall from pipe
to pipe until you go to the other side of the fence on the right
part of the fence. Note: If you climb the fence, there is no way
to go to the other part. You will find some pistol ammunition
and frag grenades.
Hint: Oil Refinery: Get briefcase more
When you reach the end of the level, shoot the mercenary
once, instead of grabbing him and interrogating him. Get the briefcase
to complete the mission.
Hint: The Police Station:
Sneak over to the right side to find something to climb
to get on a shed. There is a trap door on top. Open it and go
down it. Work your way around to find some pipes. Climb them as
far as you can go, until you see a burning building. There is
a slide wire here. Jump on it. Once inside the building, a woman
will guide you .Do not go in the room in front of you . Go left
down the hallway, then in a room, then back into the hallway.
Go up the staircase. When there is a gap of fire, climb on a pipe
above to get across. Once you get to a big room, the woman will
tell you to go to some stairs in the opposite corner. Go up there
in a room to find a man. He will talk. After that, leave through
the only exit to find a room with smoke pouring out of it. Use
your night vision in the room to find a door to go through. Save
the game at this point. Then, go out the door and you will find
a gap. Jump across it, then wait for the guard to get off the
radio. Knock him out by grabbing him. Shoot out the two lights
and go by the window on the right side. You can slide it open
and jump in. Wait for the guard to open the door, then sneak up
behind him and kill him. Go to the room with the keypad-locked
door. As you enter the room, the first picture on the left can
move. Move it and access the computer. The key to the door is
091772. Go on the balcony find the slide rope on the left. Use
it to get to the roof. Work your way to find to the crooked cops.
Wait for them to call for an ambulance, then grab the first man
and shoot the other man. A civilian will report seeing you. Keep
your hostage and kill the man around the corner. Then, dispose
of your hostage. Go up the stairs. You should be in the courtyard
area. Instead of shooting the lights, run to the far right corner.
Stay ducked during all of this. In the bushes is a hidden area.
Use the computer and get the med kits. Wait for the guard to come
by, then shoot him in the head to conserve ammunition. .Proceed
to the open gate. There is a drunk on the right. He will not attack,
but try to grab him. If you let him see you, and he will run off.
Grab him when you get close enough. Continue through the street.
There is one guard around the corner and perhaps one more up ahead.
Kill them and move on to find a lit area. Go to the far left and
do a wall jump over the wall. Once inside, go down the stairs.
The keypad on the door requires 5929 to be entered to gain access.
Go inside and wait to kill the guard. Move all bodies you kill
to somewhere dark where they will not be seen. Use the lock pick
to open any locked doors and access all computers. There is a
guard in the lab. Kill him. Carefully take out the camera in the
morgue, then grab and interrogate the scared man. Do no knock
him out yet. When he tells you nothing new, then knock him out.
Walk up to the bodies on the tables. Lambert talks and you will
keep going. Carefully walk through the door and kill the guard
on the left. Let the other man go . Go into the room, use the
computer, and get the med kit. Do not go out the double doors
-- it is a waste of time. Go to the automatic door and walk up
the stairs. Then, be quiet and sneak up on the first man and grab
him. Take him to the dark area where you came from, then knock
him out. Do the same to other man at the computer. Next, go to
the door across from where the second computer man was located.
Once inside you will see a silhouette. Go past the drapes, grab
him, and knock him out. Access the computer to learn that you
have completed the mission. Go out those double door that you
passed earlier for extraction. Note: Always duck when you try
grab someone because it is quieter.
Hint: The Police Station: Taking out guards:
With the first guard, do not bother time split jumping,
etc. When you open the door, quickly aim at his head and shoot
him. For the guard that receives a client, when he finished talking
do not go in his desk. No matter how silent you are, he will see
you. Go through the little window to your left. When you enter
the room, there will be a wall that is part of the cabinet and
a small window on top if you crouch and turn with your back to
the wall. Silently shoot him in the head through the window. The
civilian will run outside, so do not bother. With the guards at
the computers, take the first one as a hostage and very silently
approach the back of the second guard at the computer. Shoot him
in his head and knock out the other guard. If you do not have
ammunition, then take the first one, go in the office of the one
you shot through the window, and knock him out. Do the same for
the second one. For the guard in the camera room, hit him with
your elbow. Do not bother hiding him.
When you first go into the police station, you will be facing
a prison hallway with a guard walking away from you. In order
to defeat this guard easily, wait until he is in the guardhouse
at the end of the hall and at his computer. Then, shoot out the
light closest to you. If done correctly, he will get up and come
down the hall to investigate. While he is getting up, walk to
the edge of the darkness, making sure that you are up against
the right wall and still in total darkness. Take out your pistol
and aim for a head shot. The guard should walk up to the edge
of the darkness, then start making whimpering sounds and say that
he will let someone else take care of it. This is your chance
to either take him out with a head shot or grab him when he turns
around. Hide his body in the hallway or in the guardhouse (turn
off the lights). Then, remaining crouched, move down the hall
to the right and find the door to the left. Using your fiber optic
cable, you will see a guard watching TV. There is no way to surprise
him. Unlock the door with you lockpicks and open it. Make sure
that your pistol is equipped before you opening the door. If you
are quick enough, you can kill him before he can get his pistol
out. By doing this you will not have to worry about guards coming
when you set off the alarm in the morgue.
For the guard with the night vision goggles, follow the light
to a door across the courtyard that will lead you up some stairs.
You will end up behind the guard as opposed to climbing the pipe
and timing your movements with the light.
Hint: Presidential Palace:
When you are on the run from the guards after sniping
Nicoladze, in the dining hall climb on a cabinet. Then, jump to
the balcony that you see. Go through the door in this room. You
will find four guards. Do not shoot them yet. Instead, sneak upstairs
and turn off the light. Crouch in that corner and snipe them after
they come up to the level that you are on. You will be able to
shoot all the guards because of their curiosity to find out what
is going on upstairs.
After you take the elevator down to the library and have to fight
all the guards, instead of going against the guards and using
up ammunition, use the following trick. When the elevator opens,
run to your right and towards the flight of stairs. Run to the
left of the stairs into a flight of stairs that will lead down
There will be a guard there. Do not shoot him. Instead, just pass
him and he will not shoot or follow you. Do not run to the door
to the right of the stairs, as there are two guards coming up
Hint: Presidential Palace: Hidden area:
After you put in the code to open the gate by the waterfall
(2126), make sure that the guard is dead. Go right from the open
gate. Go along the stone wall/fencing and gate to the end of the
walkway. On the wall, you will see a faint line between darkness
and lightness. Go to the other side of this line and walk forward.
You will pass through the wall into a small area in between two
larger walls. From here, you might be able to do a split jump.
Hint: Presidential Palace: Taking out the
When you first encounter the Elites, there will be
two men on the bottom level, one on your level, and one more on
the top level. Hide just inside the door, to the right. Equip
your Smoke Grenade first, then snipe the man on the top level.
Then, immediately turn to the left and launch the grenade at the
wall, aiming to the right so it will stop at the top of the stairs.
Use Thermal Vision to kill them if the gas does not. They will
run just around the corner sometimes -- just take them out with
your pistol. On the part where you just get off the elevator,
immediately run to your left, shoot out the light in the dark
corner, then stand between the small pillar and the wall (to protect
you from the guard standing at the top of the stairs), opposite
the stairway. Equip your other Smoke Grenade then wait a few seconds.
Launch the grenade at the bookcase that is opposite the elevator.
Gun down the guards that come around while they are choking. Move
to the right side of the bookcase closest to you. While crouching
slowly back up until you see the guard's head that just appears
over the books. Kill him with a head shot. Follow the wall to
the right and do the same with the guard that was standing on
the balcony directly over you. After you use Nicolatze and the
lights go out, run to your left and hide between the pillar and
the box. Throw a Frag Grenade between the two boxes by the guards.
Snipe the other three men while taking cover. After you snipe
Nicolatze, kill the guard, then run down the stairs and immediately
shoot out the two lights in the kitchen. Wait for all three guards
to walk in one at a time and knock them out. Go to the other side
of the dining room, then go through the double doors. Choose any
door to open. As soon as you do, run back to the dark kitchen.
Equip a Frag Grenade and throw it at the guards that are searching
for you. Knock them out as they enter, but make sure they are
alone. After you kill all four, you have completed the game.
Look through the door with the thermal vision headset. Shoot at
the door and run to the corner. The guard closest to the door
will investigate what happened. As soon as he is standing still,
snipe him in the head. The other guard will not notice. When the
door shuts, get the body and hide it in the other room. Then,
go to the door, open it, and run back to the corner. The other
guard will see you, but will not know what it is and will investigate.
When he opens the door and stands still, shoot him in the head.
You do not need to hide his body. Go into the next room and look
over the stairs to the other side of the room. Snipe the guard
standing up in the head, then run to the dark corner next to the
stairs. Switch the gun to rapid fire. When the other guard runs
around the corner, shoot him.
If you see one of the Elite soldiers and aim for the head, hit
him in the face because they have helmets. If you do not do this,
he will have time to turn around and put you out of action.
Hint: Presidential Palace: Ignored by guards:
After you snipe Nickoladze from the balcony near the
end of the mission, go through the door behind you (save checkpoint).
Stop and snipe the glass door at the end of the dining room. This
will put the two guards in a zombie state and will prevent them
from coming through that door, therefore making it easier to finish
After you bypass the alarm system on the "first" flight
of steps, you will see a grandfather clock. The next room you
enter has two elite guards pacing the floor. As you enter the
room, turn around to find a ledge. As the two guards walk toward
the steps on the other side of the room, jump to the ledge and
cross. This will save you from being seen by the guards downstairs.
The elite guards will not see you.
Hint: Presidential Palace: Last save point:
Run down the stairs and enter the door opposite of
the diner. Shoot out both lights then jump and crawl onto the
metal cabinet on the right. Take out your SC-20K and wait for
a guard to enter the room. Quickly shoot him in the head. Another
guard should enter. Also shoot him in the head. If another guard
enter, do the same thing to him. Then, run into the dining room.
Jump and crawl onto the cabinet on the left. Jump onto the balcony
and slowly walk in. There will be four guards (two on both sides
of the room). Very quietly walk to the other side. Jump onto the
rail (while crouched) and hang on. Quietly fall to the ground
and open the door to complete the mission.
Hint: Presidential Palace: Shoot through
After the first checkpoint and you kill the sniper,
all the guards, and the dogs, go towards the bushes. Sneak behind
the first guard that is in the bushes and knock him out. Then,
turn on your thermal vision goggles, aim towards the palace, find
the guard, and take him out with a head shot. The bullet will
go through the bushes and hit the guard.
Hint: Return To The Chinese Embassy: Sentry
Once you use the thermal goggles to open the door,
you will enter a large open room. Note: Under the normal difficulty
setting the keycode is "1436" or "1463". To
the right will be a sentry gun. Run straight forward and out of
its range, then face the gun. To the left of it will be the computer.
Go to it and "Disable IFF" (the circle will be empty),
or just disable it. Then, jump up on the shelf you see to your
upper right. Pull yourself up, jump on a jar, then climb up where
the banister is broken. Go to the sentry gun's computer and make
the circle next to "Disable IFF" empty. Duck behind
the gun then watch as two guards walk out and get shot. The last
sentry gun at the top of the steps on the opposite side of the
room is not a problem. Look behind you (when you are behind the
sentry gun that just shot the two guards) to find a pipe. Jump
up on it and shimmy across. You will see a guard and a colonel.
Get back to where you are not visible by the colonel. He will
let the guard through the door. When he has his back to you, slowly
creep up behind him. Make sure you do not knock him out when you
jump off the pipe. Force him to let you through the retinal scanner
door and continue on with the mission.
Hint: Slaughter House:
After talking to the Chinese diplomats, go towards
the center aisle, between the sentry guns. Use the sniper view
to see a man coming from the hallway and take him out. Then, immediately
look to the left to see a soldier awaiting a Frag Grenade explosion.
Shoot him in the head. Note: It is essential that you take out
this soldier to succeed in the mission. Then, go to the room where
the American soldiers are crouching. Stand in the doorway. Face
the way the soldiers appear from. A soldier crouching will be
going directly for that room. Take him out, and then move back
to the center. As a colonel (the man with the red hat) throws
a grenade, snipe him in the head. Then, move back into the doorway
where the Americans are located. You will hear Grinko saying that
he is coming and that he is ordering a man to come with him. Stand
in the doorway and shoot the soldier that comes that way. Pick
up the medkit and go back in the middle in between the sentry
guns. Then, move forward towards the short concrete wall. Kill
Grinko with either a snipe to the head of a Frag Grenade. As soon
as you kill him, the mission will be completed.
Hint: Slaughter House: Sentry guns:
In the Slaughter House level (the level about the web-broadcast),
there are many pesky sentry guns. To keep from getting annihilated
by them, use flares. You can find five of them close together.
Rolling seems to work best in avoiding the guns. Roll just outside
of the gun's quarter-turn area so you are close enough to reach
the computer control. Light a flare and throw it in a way that
will allow you safe passage to the computer, then disable the
gun. Be careful -- the flare only distracts it just enough to
give you a small time frame to get to the computer.
When you make it to the end of the level and are near the three
soldiers and the three Chinese diplomats, you will see two sentry
guns protecting the entrances. Set up wall mines (if available)
on the side of the room opposite the doors. This is a trap for
the soldiers that appear later. Turn back to the two sentry guns.
The one on the left is guarding the soldiers. You want to leave
the gun on, but make sure the circle next to "Disable IFF"
is not filled in. This will set the gun to attack anyone (namely
the enemies that try to kill your fellow soldiers). Disable the
gun on the right and also make sure the IFF circle is not filled
in. Once you enter and talk to the Chinese diplomat, you will
be alerted that Grinko is coming. Exit out of the room, turn on
the gun you just disabled, and start aiming across the room. You
will see multiple soldiers approaching. A lot of them will be
blown up, or catch fire and die. Watch for ones with frag grenades.
Once the other soldiers are dead, Grinko can be easily dealt with.
Keep some cover and start looking for a little head popping up
above the wooden partitions then shoot him in the face (or use
a frag grenade if available). Once Grinko is dead, disable the
gun on the left and you will have completed the mission.
Hint: Training: Killing team members:
In the training level you can kill the people hired
to train you. First, get to the part where you get the gun. By
this time you should have already knocked out some people. Just
go backwards until you see someone knocked out. Then, shoot them
in the head.
Hint: Save ammunition:
If you find a room being patrolled by a guard or worker,
wait until he leaves, then turn off the light switch. When he
returns, he will immediately move to the light switch to turn
it on. At this point, his back should be turned to you. Quietly
sneak up and either grab or punch him without firing your weapon.
Hint: Avoiding detection:
Always try to stay in shadows or bushes; crouch when
walking around; try to take someone hostage before shooting them;
always try to use your night vision/thermo goggles just to check
to see if there is anything to get around you; and drag bodies
into dark corners.
Hint: Retrieving Sticky Camera:
To retrieve a Sticky Camera that is too high to reach,
shoot it with the sniper rifle or the handgun. It will fall to
Hint: Knockouts with Sticky Cameras:
Use the following trick to have essentially unlimited
ammunition for knocking out enemies. This does not work until
after you have found the SC-20K and have Sticky Cameras. If you
are close to an enemy and want to knock him out, shoot him in
the head with a Sticky Camera. It will knock out your enemy, and
you can then pick the camera up off of the ground.
Shoot a sticky camera at a guard's head to knock him out. After
knocking him out, you can pick up the camera and reuse it. This
saves ammunition for other gadgets, such as air foil rings, sticky
shockers, etc. Note: You must hit them in the head, otherwise
they will notice you.
Hint: Knockouts with Ring Airfoil Projectiles:
When you shoot the Ring Airfoil Projectile at someone
and you do not hit the head, when his head is spinning and he
is almost knocked out, it is a good idea to try to run up to him
then either whack him or put him in a headlock, rather than just
shooting another at him.
Hint: Use Diversion Cameras to take out
In the levels in the game after you gain the SC-20K,
you can easily take out large groups of enemies using the Diversion
Cameras. First, find a good hiding place. Fire a Diversion Camera
at the first guard. Make sure you hit him in the head. Then, all
the other guards will approach to investigate. You can now easily
If you are pinned down by a turret, throw a flare across
it. The turret will be distracted for a moment, which may be long
enough for you to sneak behind it and disable it.
You cannot be seen when hiding in dark places. Shoot
the lights to make it dark, but make sure that there are no guards
around. Do not stay in the light too long.
Hint: Faster manual lockpick:
When using the manual lockpick, instead of rotating
it slowly as the game suggests, press the Analog-stick
in one of the four diagonal corners, as the "rumble"
will always be in one of those directions. This is much quicker.
Hint: Thermal goggle keypad readings:
To read the heat signature on a keypad, you can either
walk up to the keypad and look at it with the heat goggles on,
use sniper mode at a distance with the heat goggles on, or activate
the keypad and turn on your heat goggles there. The order of the
buttons will be as follows, based on color: Deep Blue, Blue, Light
Blue, Green, Light Green, Yellow, Orange, Red. For example, if
you had a Deep Blue button at 1, a Light Green button at 3, a
Light Blue button at 4, and a Orange-Ish Red button at 6, the
code would be 1-4-3-6.
This trick where you use your thermal goggles to read the code
punched in by a guard is extremely useful, but only available
in the second Chinese Embassy mission as the current temperature
in the Embassy is low enough for you to notice a difference on
the buttons that were pressed by the guard. The buttons go from
a deep red color to a deep blue color. Look for the button that
is slightly different from most of the other buttons. Then, look
for a lighter blue button and so on. following green, yellow,
orange and finally red.
Hint: Blocking doors:
If you have someone chasing you, run out a door, and
when it closes, stand in front of the door for awhile. The guard
will sometimes try to open it before he gives up. Note: The door
must open towards you, and not towards the enemy. The game can
crash sometimes when you do this. If the guard starts shooting
at the door, you must open it quickly. Otherwise, the game will
glitch and you will be invisible to the enemy and no event triggers
Hint: Dropping down from high locations
If jumping at a place that is a long way down, you
will probably die or get hurt. If there is a guard nearby, try
to jump down on him so that he takes the damage. Note: You can
go into the silent drop while hitting him, so nobody will hear
him scream. If there are no guards nearby, go into the silent
drop, and when you touch the ground, quickly hold Jump.
If done correctly, you will only get about 25% of the damage that
you would normally receive by such a drop.
You can land quieter by crouching immediately before you hit the
Hint: Shooting lights accurately:
When you want to shoot out a light and need make it
accurate, turn on your heat vision. You should be able to knock
out the light faster and easier.
Hint: Shooting the SC pistol accurately:
Use the following trick to make a perfect headshots
and other hits with the SC Pistol or any other non lethal ammunition
of the SC-20K. Equip the SC-20K, enter sniper mode, hold your
breath (L1) and aim for a headshot or anything else. Then,
without moving either Analog-stick (movement or camera),
change your weapon to the SC Pistol or use the SC-20K in normal
mode (for any other non lethal ammunition) and fire. Alternately,
you can set the aim with the normal binoculars at full zoom (easier).
Hint: Disabling Wall Mines:
Slowly go up to a Wall Mine. It will flash red and
green at an even pace. To disable this, you have to press Action
when it flashes green. If it becomes red the instant before you
press Action, it will explode. The way to always do this
safely is to hold Action button when the "Disable
Wall Mine" selection appears. Then, if it is green, release
the button. If it is red on the screen, move the selection up
to "Back To Game" and try again.
Hint: Sniping with the SC-20K:
When using the sniper mode of the SC-20K, you can hold
L1 to make Sam hold his breath and aim more accurately.
You can use this to clear out rooms or open areas from afar without
letting anyone spot you. The safest way is to wait for a guard
to stop in his tracks. Then, hold L1, set the target on
his head and take the shot. This is extremely helpful in the first
few levels from when you pickup the SC-20K. However, when you
get to the Abbatoir mission, you must be extremely careful as
the guards can see you from a lot further, can see you in the
shadows, and also have more powerful weapons. You must exercise
extreme caution. From Abbatoir onwards, if there are multiple
guards in the one room, your best choice of action is to use a
smoke grenade, if they are bunched up. If not. then do not go
in commando-style because the guards from here on out are much
more powerful than in previous levels.
Hint: Rifle rapid-fire:
Equip the rifle and press L3. The bullets on
the screen will be a bit darker. This indicates that you have
switched to rapid-fire mode. Be careful, as you cannot simply
hold the trigger as you could before; the gun will shoot as much
until you release.
Hint: Better sniper mode accuracy:
For better accuracy on sniper mode, hold L1.
Note: This may take a few seconds to start.
Hint: Escaping a room full of soldiers:
Take a sticky camera or smoke grenades and throw it
near where the most guards are located. For the sticky camera,
a control bar that tells you how to make a noise or use smoke
will appear at the bottom of the screen. Throw the smoke grenade
and the smoke should knock out some guards. When the smoke appears
from the grenade(s), it is your chance to run for it .
Hint: Knock out an enemy:
To knock out an enemy without killing him, equip the
sticky camera and shoot it at his head. Aim slightly above the
head to compensate for gravity. After he is down, pick up the
sticky camera and use it again.
You can throw bottles to knock out guards. You must aim and hit
them in the head.
Hint: Taking out two guards:
Shoot a sticky camera near the guard closest to you.
When he approaches, use the gas to knock him out. The other guard
will approach to investigate. You must either shoot him with a
non lethal round if you cannot have casualties, or take him out
with a head shot if killing is sanctioned. This has to be done
correctly or he will revive the guard that you knocked out.
Hint: Eliminating guard threat without
If you do not have ammunition and you find two guards,
sneak up to one and take him hostage. Make sure that your hostage
is facing the other guard or he will shoot you.
If you do not have ammunition, hide in the shadows and wait for
a guard to come up to you (or slowly creep up to him) then press
R1 to punch him. Use two punches to knock out someone.
If you need to knock out many guards without killing them, look
around for a water puddle. Try to lure them into it, then shoot
a Sticky Shocker into the water. This will knock many of them
out. This works with any body of water, including the sewers in
the Chinese Embassy level.
When carrying a guard near a ledge or hole, it is possible to
drop them flat on their back or face. In the nuclear power plant
mission, after you ride down on top of the elevator you will climb
under a walkway and out a hole. Shoot the camera to the right,
then shoot or knock out the guard. Pick up the guard then fall
into the hole. The guard drops down behind you, falling on the
walkway and making a sound. Rotate the camera to see the guard
hit the grate.
Hint: Airfoil efficiency:
To knock someone out with one airfoil, shoot the airfoil
at the head. If you need to use someone for a retinal scanner
or to interrogate someone, but they spot you, shoot them once
in their chest. The will appear as if they are drunk for a couple
of seconds. This is your chance to run behind and grab them. Note:
Shooting a guard in the head that is wearing a helmet will not
have any effect.
Hint: Spying and hiding:
The first step in successfully hiding is to check your
stealth meter. It is located directly above the weapon select
box. When the bar on this meter is all the way to the left, you
are in the darkest possible state. The opposite is true if the
bar is on the right. You will however (in some cases) get caught
if the guard is within about three feet away from you. When you
are in this position, the best possible thing to do is to stun
hit him or shoot him, if you have the authorization. Note that
in certain levels guards will have night vision (indicated with
a light next to their head), in which case you will be caught.
If you are having difficulty knocking out guards, take a loose
object found on the ground (such as a can or glass bottle) and
throw it away from you about ten feet so that the guard will hear
it. Make sure the guard's back is towards you when he goes to
investigate the sound. Quickly but carefully sneak up behind him
in the crouched position. If you are close enough to him, an interaction
box with the option of "Grab Character" will appear.
Select it and Sam will immediately grab him into a hostage position.
This is helpful if you are in a tight spot. Guards that value
life will not shoot as long as you have him, until you turn your
back. Other guards will just want to get the job done and fire
without reaon. General spying tools are the scope on your rifle,
Sticky Cameras, Worm Cam, Distraction Cameras, and your goggles.
The scope on your rifle is very helpful if you need to see or
shoot long distances. While zoomed in you can hold L1 for
a cleared shot and enter both your night or thermal visions. Your
rifle can also fire alternate spying tools or stunners. To select
it, scroll to the first column, where it reads "SC-20".
It should open a menu of the items you have. Just highlight one
to equip it. Then, press L1 to fire it. The Sticky and
Distraction cameras are useful tools if you need to check around
corners or distract someone so you can escape. The Sticky Camera
has useful tools such as zoom and both visions. The Distraction
Camera uses a microphone which Sam can whistle into and a canister
of knockout gas. Try whistling until the guard approaches, then
release the knock out gas. Your Worm Cam is very useful. It has
a small enough cable to allow Sam to slip it under doors to see
what is on the other side with night vision. First, equip it from
your inventory, then get directly in front of a door. Press R1
to use it.
Hint: Luring your enemy:
To do this, find a can or glass bottle to pick up.
Once obtained, move to a location, preferably dark. While hidden,
throw the can or bottle to an open area with an enemy nearby.
When thrown, the enemy will wonder what happened and walk towards
that location. After you have drawn him out, you can take him
out for an easy kill.
When throwing objects, you can use the can as many times as desired,
but a bottle is more noticeable.
Hint: Hiding bodies:
After you have disposed of enemies in an area, make
sure that you still hide them, even though no one is nearby. Before
going to another checkpoint, the alarm may ring, and it will say
that a body was found. Try to hide all bodies in hidden areas
for best results.
In order to completely hide the body of some victims, you must
dump them over ledges or broken windows. In order for this to
work, the edge has to be flush with the ground. You cannot do
this over railings. After you have killed or knocked out your
victim, pick them up as usual. Get as close to the ledge as possible.
Tap the Left Analog-stick to get Sam to face away from
the ledge. With Sam's heels as close to the ledge as possible,
press L2 button to drop them over. They will fall all the
way to the bottom. One place you can do this, is during the Oil
Rig level. After Lambert first tells you to follow the computer
man and you have to shimmy across the pipe to get to the catwalk,
there will be a guard at the top of the stairs. Kill him and take
him back down and underneath the stairs where there is an opening
in the railing. Drop him off here. You may be able to hear a splash.
You can also do this with the guard in Nikoladze's office, after
you rappel and break the glass.
Hint: Holding people hostage:
When you see a civilian, sneak up behind him then press
X when it says "Grab Character". Then, if there
are guards in front of you, he will not shoot you. Note :If there
are guards in front and behind, left, or right of you, the person
not facing the civilian will shoot you. Also, if you turn your
back to the enemy they will shoot you. If you want to shoot someone
will holding them hostage, press R2 then aim and fire.
If you aim, the enemy will shoot you. If you want to release the
hostage, press R1 to knock him out.
Hint: Quickly drop body:
When moving a body. equip your weapon. This will automatically
drop the body.
Hint: Hide face:
Have the diversionary camera equipped with the SC-10.
Press L1 button before you zoom in and fire it at a wall.
If Sam is close to the wall, he will put his hand in front of
the camera to hide his face. You can try this with any sticky
camera, but you need to be close to the wall you shoot it on for
him to cover it.
Hint: Go through fire without getting hurt:
To go through fire, walk up to it and quickly press
Circle. You should roll through it without a scratch. Note:
This may take a few attempts.
Glitch: Defense Ministry: Sprinklers:
When you are in the courtyard, look for sprinklers
on the lawn. If you shoot the sprinklers, they will be destroyed
but the water will continue to spray as if they were not.
Glitch: Frozen man (demo version):
In the room with the hole in the wall and the Medical
Kit placed to the side of it, enter the hole. Press L3
to place your back to the wall and try sliding left while the
camera angle is at an "awkward" position. Sometimes
you will find that Sam will begin to tremble as a result of a
glitch in the auto camera angle, causing it to move uncontrollably.
Following this, even though Sam can operate the goggles respectively
(thermal and night vision), you may find that he becomes "stuck"
in one position and cannot be moved at all (as if he has become
jammed in the gap). Also, maneuvering the camera angle with the
Right Analog-stick at this point may result in you being
able to look through the wall in a glitched fashion. Other effects
may include the camera angle (if moved too far in one direction)
plunging all vision into complete blackness until it is moved
Glitch: Wrong bathroom (demo version):
Enter the restaurant through the front doors (the glass
ones). Follow it around the corner going towards the kitchen and
wait. Two guards will talk for a bit. After they finish, a male
guard gets up and goes to the bathroom, but goes into the women's
Glitch: Unlimited ammunition (demo version):
When you get to the roof of the restaurant, go across
the planks to enter the rundown building. When the guard appears,
kill him. Pick up the sachet he leaves. You will get a Data Stick.
Run over him and you will get some ammunition for your pistol.
If you have full ammunition for the gun (60 bullets), fire one
and run over to him again. You will get more ammunition. Whenever
you do not have full ammunition, you can repeat this as many times
Glitch: Kill guards through doors:
When you are running around and trigger an alert for
the guards, go into a room and stand directly behind the door
once it shuts, in order to keep the guards from opening the door.
Use your optic cable to see if a guard is near. If so, withdraw
your optic cable and watch your side of the door. You should see
a part of a guard passing through it (usually a hand). Aim at
where the hand was, time it to when it comes through, then shoot
it until you hear the guard die on the other side. Note: This
does not work on dogs because they never come up to the doors.
