Estimated Number of Hostiles
: 35 - 45 Tangos ( Depends on Skill Level Attempted
Armaments and Ordinance :
The Enemy is equiped with
AK47s, AK74SUs, AK74SU/GLs, SVDs as well as Grenades.
There are also Two - 60 Cal. Machine Gun Nests
manned by one Tango each just short of, and Guarding
the S.A.M. Launcher's position at the Top of the
Hill across the River from Insert.
For this Mission - I will
detail Objectives In the Order that I see they
need to be accomplished. This is so You and Your
Team will always be able to launch these Assaults
from a stable Base when using this SOP.
I went with only a Sniper and
a Demo Specialist (2 Ops). I usually try to do
them with 1 Operative but for this Walkthrough
I've used 2 Operatives. There are many ways to
accomplish these Individual Missions, and this
Walkthrough is only Intended as a Guide. There
are many other SOPs ( Standard Operating Procedures
) that will be as effective as this one.
Objective # 1» Secure
Hostiles in this Area / Approx.
18 Tangos ; Both on Patrol, and arriving @ the
Crossing in Jeeps.
- The Start of this Mission
could probably be best Described as - "Hurry
up and Wait" - As You and Your Demo Spec.
double-time it up the Hill that Overlooks the
Guard Outpost where the Road crosses the River.
You and the Demo Spec. will Set up a Primary Hide
( The First Shoot ) on the Side of this Hill to
Engage a 3 Man Foot Patrol and a Jeep that will
come from beyond the Location where You and You
Demo Spec. Inserted. Eliminate both the 3 Man
Foot Patrol and the Jeep as they Enter Your Sights.
Note : (Target Aquisition )
- If You make Your shots count - You'll Eliminate
the 3 Man Foot Patrol and be prepared when the
Jeep enters the fray shortly thereafter.
Note : ( Jeeps ) - Dump the
Driver and You will effectively stop all forward
progression of that Vehicle. Then - The Riders
in the Back are Pure Gravy.
- Once You have Taken Out the
Foot Patrol of 3 Tangos and Eliminated the Tangos
in the Jeep, turn Your Sights to the Crossing
at the River. With the Sniper - Traverse Your
Scope angle and bring it to bear on the Tangos
across the river crossing, that are guarding the
OutPost. You will see a Patrol of 3 Tangos closest
to You as well as another Patrol of 3 Tangos farther
on up the Hill just passing the Outpost. The Far
Patrol is one that will go out of Scope Range
if You take to much time to conduct this, Second
Shoot. Personally - I scope the farthest Patrol
and note the Postitions of the 3 Tangos that are
in the closest Patrol. Once I've made a Mental
of the Various Postions, I then take the Farthest
Tangos to My Line of Fire. Then Its BAM, BAM.
Down go His 2 companions.
- The Elimination of the above
Patrol cues the Nearest Patrol across the river,
to You and Your Demo Spec. Stay Frosty, and Lay
down Withering Fire on the Second Patrol as they
attempt to Task Your Position while at the same
time trying to make it to cover.
Note : In this Second Patrol
- 2 of the Tangos will go Left / Right, with the
remaining Tango dropping to one Knee and trying
to Bag You and Your Team. Take the Tango hitting
one Knee / Then Take the Tango going right before
He makes that Rock / Then Take the Tango going
for the Trees up the Hill across the river.
- Stay Static, and as You Scope
up range You should see a Second Jeep come into
View as it meanders its way down the Hill and
across the Road traversing in front of the Outpost's
Main building. Again Scope the Driver and "Let
One Go". Once the Driver of the Second Jeep
is toast - The 2 HitchHikers left riding in the
back shouldn't know what hit them if You're worth
Your salt with the business end of Your chosen
- This should allow You and
Your Team a good opportunity to cross the River
at Double-Speed. Do so, and as Your Team moves
to the Outpost Main Building's River-side wall,
make sure You are scoping ten o'clock to two o'clock
scopin' for Targets as You approach. This will
ensure that You clear the Outpost Area totally
as well as prevent Tangos inside the structure
who may move out as You approach, from Taking
You out. Additionally - This will allow You and
Your Team to ensure that You have a Sanitized
Area from which to Conduct the Third Shoot of
- Once You are sure that the
Immediate Area around the Outpost Building is
Clear of Hostiles, move to the Left side of the
back wall of the Outpost. Ensure that You go to
a Prone position / Peek out to Your Left, and
Scope up range to the 60 Cal. position up the
Hill past the Outpost.
- Up range, You'll see one Tango
manning a 60 Cal. Machine Gun as well as a 3 Man
Foot Patrol of Tangos as they go about their WalkPath
at the Top of the Hill. Bag the 60 Cal. Machine
Gunner and then take out the 3 Man Patrol before
they can get to cover. Now as You task these 4
Tangos - You may be further encumbered by another
Roving Patrol of approx. 8 Tangos that will be
cued to You and Your Squad by Your attack on the
60 Cal. Machine Gunner, and the 3 Man Foot Patrol.
Be wary and Task Them as They Task You. Use the
Corner of the Building for what its intended for
- COVER. Peek Out / Peek back / Peek Out / Peek
back, and be wary of the FireAngle that You'll
present to Tangos that may attempt to Bag You
from the Rocks - Direct Eleven thirty from Your
NOW current Position.
- If You've taken All Your Targets
/ And checked them corners, this will leave You
and Your Demo Spec. to Breach and Assault the
Outpost Building to finally secure the "Secondary
Crossing", as Your Mission's Primary OB #
- Move You and Your Demo Spec.
up to the Back Door of the Outpost Building and
make sure that You've got that M4 Secondary Kitted
up. Breach the Door, and enter the structure keeping
eyes left as You movbe to the Interior Doorway.
This Tango is the Trickiest Tango to kill as He
is standing there usually cued on the fact that
the Door was just Opened. Slice the Pie on this
Tango and as soon as You see a foot or a knee
- SHOOT His ( Insert Appendage ) right off and
take a Deep Breath. This will leave 2 Tangos left
in this Building. There is one in the room closest
to You and Your Team as well as one in the Room
that was closest to You when You were Sniping
the Patrols outside, at the back of the Outpost.
Crouch down as You move past the Door and once
again If that Tango in the First room presents
anything - Shoot it and let Him fall wherever
He buys it. Move to the Back Room of the Outpost
now, and this last Tango will be waiting for You
to the right of the Door - just Inside the door
and on the other side of a Desk in that Room.
Peek until You can see His Kidneys and then remove
them. This will have the effect of Killing that
Tango, and Grant Your Team a - "Mission Objective
# 1 | Successfully Completed". Now - On to
the S.A.M. Launcher, and OB # 2...
Objective # 2» Neutralize
Mobile SAM Launcher.
- Move You and Your Demo Spec. up from the secured
Secondary Crossing to the Rocks just left of and
Short of the other 60 Cal. Machine Gun position.
Once You get to the Rocks this 60 Cal. will be
located to Your Eleven thirty. Take out the Gunner
and Double-time Your Demo Spec. to Your Squad's
two o'clock, so as to be able to get off a Rock
Solid shot with the AT4. Once You have that Aspect
with the Demo Spec. - Destroy the S.A.M. Launcher,
and then Double-time Your Demo Spec. to Your Squad's
position at the Rocks, on the corner across from
the Second 60 Cal. Machine Gun position. Get to
the Top of this Ridge with the Sniper and set
up just short of the Ridge Lip. This will be the
Fourth, and Hopefully Last Shoot necessary to
complete this Mission.
Objective # 3 » Stop
- Scoping from the RidgeLine,
You'll Note through Your Scope that a Patrol of
3 Tangos is moving at Breakneck speed up over
the Rise, and down the Road towards Your position.
Take out the Lead Tango ( or at Least one of them
) to halt their advance. If You allow even one
Tango to get under Your Long Gun's Scope - He
will No Doubt attempt to take You and Your Team
out as You set up for the AT4 Shots that need
to be made on the Tank Column that is NOW, quicky
- You'll hear the unmistakable
sound of the Armor as It approaches Your Position.
Place Your Demo Spec. on the RidgeLine at the
Position Designated on the Waypoints / Hostiles
Diagram. This will afford Your Demo Spec. MAX
cover while allowing the Most time to Reload the
AT4, and get Successive Shots off as the Tanks
move across Your LOF ( Line Of Fire ). Now - If
You do this right - It should be ;
- Tank 1 Destroyed / Reload...
- Tank 2 Destroyed / Reload...
- Tank 3 Destroyed / "Mission Objective #
3 | Successfully Completed"
Objective # 4 - Neutralize
- Move back to Your Sniper, and get Your Scope
out across the RidgeLine again. Scope down the
Road where the Tank Column has just come from.
You'll see 2 Patrols of 3 Tangos now moving to
Investigate the Destruction of the Tank Column.
Wait 'em and let them All Present to You and Your
Sniper Rifle. When the Patrols have moved far
enough up and Finally have no where left to go
- Begin Eliminating them with Extreme Prejudice
making sure NOT to allow any of these Tangos to
get under the Scope of Your Long Gun, Back Dooring
You and Your Team in the Process.
- Stay Frosty, and take those
Targets. You'll be surprised to Note that as You
bag the Sixth Tango from these last 2 Patrols,
You'll be presented with the Ingame Message ;

Tips and Strategies
- This walkthrough was
played on elite. If you play either of the other
two difficulty levels, you can expect less enemy
- There are a few snipers
strategically placed on the map. Use your Optics
to scan any area you are about to travel to,
and always stay low. AI Ssnipers won't miss
if they get a shot.
- Look at the "Mission
Waypoints" Diagram to obtain an estimate
of where you can expect to encounter bad guys.
The exact position, movement and encounter with
the enemy forces depends on many variables,
so it may vary slightly. Don't panic, Improvise.
- Look at the "Mission
Objectives" Diagram to obtain INTEL on
the Objectives in the Mission and where you
may expect to encounter the Need for that INTEL.
- Move cautiously. Don't
stand up unless you are certain an area You
are about to enter is clear. At a minimum, kneel
when traversing to different areas. When holding,
go into the Prone position.
- Use the environment,
the Enemy does. Given the terrain, there are
areas where you can have a height advantage/disadvantage.
Select your position carefully. Many of the
Enemy troops are well hidden and waiting to
get a bead on you.
- If you're new to Ghost
Recon, and you're getting discouraged...use
the quicksave and quickload feature. If you're
a Pro...try it with no saves, no threat indicator
and complete ALL of the objectives.
