unwritt3n's Ghost Recon campaign play-through (2017)

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I decided playing through the Ghost Recon campaign for the 38743897439287th time :)

This time, I've decided to record it and upload it to youtube.

I'm not usually a streamer/gaming uploader, so just doing this for fun.

 

Difference with this campaign play-though, is that I'm going to challenge myself and stick with using the same Ghosts though-out the entire campaign. With the exception of adding in/removing specialist as required. This is going to be tough, and I might not even make it the whole way!

If I feel like it, I'll restart the entire mission, but I won't be using quick saves/loads.

Might take me a while to actually finish this...

GHOST PLATOON (Starting squads):
-Alpha squad-
Dennis Martin – DEMO
Gilbert Bean – SNIPER
John Cosner – RIFLEMAN

-Bravo squad-
Richard Weinstein – DEMO
Brian Duan – SNIPER
Chris Corum – RIFLEMAN

First video incoming, and man, it wasn't a great start for mission 1.... :( 

Please subscribe/like my videos :)

MISSION 01 – IRON DRAGON

OBJECTIVES
1. Neutralise tent camp troops
2. Secure the caves
3. Return to insertion zone
4. Capture Papashvili

OVERVIEW

The first mission isn’t a great start to the challenge.
G. Bean (SNIPER) is caught up in some return fire and is wounded (Right-leg).
On the way to extraction after clearing the camps, caves and capturing Papashvili, R. Weinstein (DEMO) is hit and is KIA.
I may sit out G. Bean for mission 2 to have a 5 man team back for mission 3. I’ve lost a DEMO soldier very early in this, which will be a challenge. But hopefully I can unlock a specialist to assist.

AFTER-ACTION

-Alpha squad-
Dennis Martin – DEMO
Gilbert Bean – SNIPER [WOUNDED]
John Cosner – RIFLEMAN

-Bravo squad-
Richard Weinstein – DEMO [KIA]
Brian Duan – SNIPER
Chris Corum – RIFLEMAN

MISSION 02 – EAGER SMOKE

OBJECTIVES
1. Rescue Pilot
2. Rescue W. Officer
3. Get to extraction zone
4. Destroy avionics

OVERVIEW

I let G. Bean sit out this mission to recover.
Overall, mission was a success. Been a long time since I've played this. The AI planted the demo charge, but it doesn't register as completing the 'Destroy avionics' objective. I've missed out on unlocking a speaclist here.

AFTER-ACTION

-Alpha squad-
Dennis Martin – DEMO
Gilbert Bean – SNIPER [RESTING]
John Cosner – RIFLEMAN

-Bravo squad-
Brian Duan – SNIPER
Chris Corum – RIFLEMAN

MISSION 03 – Stone Bell

OBJECTIVES

1. Destroy northeast patrol
2. Destroy southwest patrol
3. Prevent HQ breach
4. No NATO casualties

OVERVIEW

This (and the battlefield mission) are probably the most difficult. Unfortunatly, 1x KIA - Rifleman Chris Corum. Hard to avoid when the AI is pushing forward and spawning left, right and centre!

Pretty happy with the final result. Mission completed in just 5 minutes. Also unlocked a DEMO specialist, which will be helpful seeing as I lost one in the first mission.

This is getting tough. Hopefully no more casualties!

AFTER-ACTION

-Alpha squad-
Dennis Martin – DEMO
John Cosner – RIFLEMAN
Gilbert Bean – SNIPER [RECOVERED]

-Bravo squad-
Chris Corum – RIFLEMAN [KIA]
Brian Duan – SNIPER

That's it for today.

1440p isn't coming up for me on my uploaded videos, but I think it can take time for YouTube to process it and make it available.

Hopefully I can get the next mission sometime this week.

MISSION 04 – Black Needle

OBJECTIVES

1. Secure the crossroads
2. Contact UN troops
3. Return to extraction zone
4. Keen UN soldiers alive

OVERVIEW

This is a simple mission, if you move fast. Managed to get to the UN soldiers before they were overrun. Took a nice sniping position at the top of the hill, and picked the Russians off through a bush.
I had both Alpha and Bravo squad in a good position ready for the small fire-team that ambushed us.
Mission was a success as all OPFOR was eliminated.

AFTER-ACTION

-Alpha squad-

John Cosner – RIFLEMAN
Gilbert Bean – SNIPER

-Bravo squad-

Dennis Martin – DEMO
Brian Duan – SNIPER

MISSION 05 – Gold Mountain

OBJECTIVES

1. Secure the bank
2. Investigate crash site
3. Go to extraction zone
4. Avoid civilian casualties

OVERVIEW

I'm not going to lie. I restarted this mission over 20 times. Each time I was getting sloppier. It's pretty stressful using no quick saves/loads, getting so close to the end. Then making stupid/simple mistakes. 3 KIA's in this one. Which leaves me with only 1 original left. I could have restarted, but no matter how many attempts, I kept stuffing up right at the end. If I did this again. I wouldn't rush back to avoid the tank. I'd stay put, AT it, and defend the area.

Going to most definitely utilise the specialist from here.

Hopefully I can keep at least 1 original til the end!

AFTER-ACTION

John Cosner – RIFLEMAN [KIA]

MISSION 06 – Witch Fire

OBJECTIVES

1. Gather intel from SE house
2. Gather intel from NW house
3. Get to extraction zone
4. Destroy SAM site

OVERVIEW

Great mission success after the last one! Introduced 3x specialist into the platoon. No KIA's or injuries. I've probably played this too much, so I know where and when to expect enemies. (You'll see the truck spawn out of no where!).

Still going to be difficult going forward, as at this stage I only have 1 demo. I can't remember if and when I'm able to unlock a new DEMO specialist. Going to definitely need them for the Battlefield and last mission!

AFTER-ACTION

-Alpha squad-

Nigel Tunney - DEMO [SPECIALIST]
Gilbert Bean – SNIPER

-Bravo squad-

Will Jacobs - RIFLEMAN [SPECIALIST]
Jack Stone - SNIPER [SPECIALIST]

MISSION 07 – Paper Angel

OBJECTIVES

1. Destroy east pylon
2. Destroy west pylon
3. Get to extraction zone
4. Eliminate camp garrison

OVERVIEW

Well, it's getting absolutely tense now!
I was stressing on how I would even complete this, as I only have 1 DEMO avalible. And I needed him to bring charges for the pylons. I was lucky in that the mission was a success due to all OPFOR being eliminated.

There were quite a few close calls, but sniping for afar goes a long way in this mission.

Next one will be tough. I only have 1 DEMO capable of carrying an AT. And it's tanks, tanks, tanks.

AFTER-ACTION

-Alpha squad-

Nigel Tunney - DEMO [SPECIALIST]
Gilbert Bean – SNIPER

-Bravo squad-

MISSION 08 - Zebra Straw

OBJECTIVES

1. Secure the village
2. Destroy east artillery
3. Destroy north artillery
4. Protect friendly tank

OVERVIEW

34 restarts. That's how many times I restarted the missoin before I settled on this outcome.
Man this is hard, especially when you only have 1 DEMO avalible with an AT, and you're trying to keep everyone alive.
In the end, unfortunatley 2x KIAs. J. Stone [SNIPER] and K. Henkel [DEMO].
Stupid... I shouldn't have put K. Henkle in. He was a new specialist DEMO unlock that I wanted to skill up. KIA on his first mission.

This mission is frustrating at times as you just wish your AI would return fire. That's why I lost both.
I also failed to protect the tank, so I haven't been able to unlock a new specialist.

That's probably the hardest one... But not sure how I'm going to go with only 1 DEMO still....

Spirit is down... But I'm still 100% keen to finish this!

So mission 09 is being difficult! I don't remember it being so hard. The foggy swamp mission. The enemy AI is literally annihilating me through the fog. They're shooting me before they're even visible. Already had quite a few go's. Was up to the last encampment and both squads got taken out by 1 AI soldier, who was deep in the fog. DAMN!

MISSION 09 - Blue Storm

OBJECTIVES

1. Clear northern island
2. Clear eastern island
3. Clear western island
4. Capture Russian officer

OVERVIEW

Mission complete. But my confidence to finish this challenge is almost gone! Another 2 KIA's. My original sniper G. Bean and specialist W. Jacobs. Don't know why I used the grenade launcher near the end with W. Jacobs, should have picked off that group. After restarting this mission over and over you start to get a bit tired.

I don't know how I'm going to complete the next one. Protecting the tank column with a single AT again.

I'll keep going!!!! I really can't afford any KIA's now. And really need to unlock more specialist.

If only you saw how many attempts I've had at each of the missions :wall:

Sorry guys, haven't had a chance to tackle the next mission. I've tried it twice now and keep losing the tanks. I'm relying on the AI friendly tanks to take out some of the enemy tanks, as I've only got 1 AT with 4 rounds. 

This mission may be a road block. But I'll give it a shot tomorrow.

MISSION 10 - Fever Claw

OBJECTIVES

1. Secure University Square
2. Secure Presidential Palace
3. Secure Catherdral Square
4. No friendly tank casualties

OVERVIEW

Woooo hoooo! is all I can say. Mission success with no squad or tank casualties and 1 AT soldier! Unlocked a new specialist.
I tried to conserve all my AT rockets, first shot was a miss too hahaha.
I learnt that it's more about the enemy AT soldiers, rather than the tanks destroying the friendly tanks.
I'd like to think this has put me in a good position, with an extra specialist avaliable. N. Tunney is racking up some medals!

I just picked up Wildlands, so I'll probably be balancing this with that now...

Although, Wildlands has finished installing but I want to continue on with this!
