I have good news and bad
news: the bad news is that this mission is tough. The
good news is .... well, there ain't no good news.
This mission is tough. Period. The
reason why this mission is tough is because it's time
based. You will do something that will trigger a friendly
tank to start moving down the road. The tank will slowly
crawl down the main road of the town and that town is
baddies, some armed with AT. This means that you have
to act quickly and one of the bad things about GR is
that if you act quickly your friendly AI is bound to
get killed just as quickly and possibly get you killed
Keep in mind that this is simply
my interpretation of this mission.
You will have to move the AI around
and use only one team until you can get the friendly
tank through the town. You will use one team (in this
case team one which is set up for CQB for that purpose).
You will move through the town and kill as many soldiers
as you can. (those facing the street). They are hidden
through the houses and we'll go through them one by one.
The important thing is keep the other two teams out of
the way or they will get slaughtered.
If you want to finish all objectives
of this mission you have to take note that the bonus
objective is to protect the friendly tank. This means
that since the tank will start moving almost right away,
that is your first priority: protect the tank. This means
that you have to haul ass and clean that town on the
Step 1: saving your own ass.
The mission begins with you close
to a destroyed house in the middle of nowhere. Baddies
are going to come from the east (from over the crater
to the east) and the north. 2 teams will come from the
north, one from the east.
Keep Leave 2 teams where they are
and take team 1 on the north side of the house. Wait
a few seconds until both teams of bad guys are visible
(if you shoot too soon the second team will take cover
and make your life harder) and then blast them as fast
as you can. Don't be cheap with ammo. Taxpayers are buying
them bullets, not you. The bad guys will come from both
directions at the same time. You can't handle both at
the same time but the other 2 teams you left behind will
pin down the other bad guys for a while, giving you time
to take care of the bad guys from the north. Once you
are done with them move quickly around the house and
take careful aim at the surviving bad guys (if any) from
the east and help out your other teams in finishing them
Step 2: Getting to town.
Move immediately to the east with
all teams. Team 1 is still key here. Remember to change
magazine in your main guy. As you move east at first
you will notice a tank and a bunch of guys on your right.
Ignore them. As you walk a friendly bomber will stop
by to drop a friendly reminder that USAF don't like enemy
tanks. They will get wiped out rather quickly and effectively
without you having to fire a shot.
Move north past them and as you do
that you will see some guys to the left of the first
house. Make quick work of them and then prep the grenade
launcher. Move close to the south wall of the house and
as you walk east before you reach the corner you will
see some ruins in the distance. They are crawling with
enemies (you can see a picture of the ruins on the right).
Some of them have AT.
Let them have it with those grenade
and be quick about it. Time's running out. Be sure to
clean up that place and the trees beyond from a distance.
You really don't have time to hunt them down. Blast 2-3
grenades among those ruins and them pick off the survivors
as quickly as you can with your rifle. Keep in mind that
now they know you are there and you just pissed them
People tend to get cranky when they
get shot at. You are not best buddies with them now ...
There's another bad guy with AT
inside the house opposite and to the north of the house
you are hiding behind (you have to peek around the left
of the corner shown in the picture above. That guy has
AT and you have to eliminate him.
You can take one of the other teams
and follow the friendly tank (if you have time and if
you have been fast enough until this point) and as soon
as you see the other guy peek out of a window you kill
Or you have to use the OICW with
grenades and put one in each window or as many as you
can inside the house until you get it... or just wait
with the OICW guy around the corner until you see the
AT guy peeking out.
In the map picture all the way at the top, where you see "patrols" in
green, north of the road, there's an enemy tank. Your tank can get rid of it
... or might get killed by it. If you are quick, you can send one of your AT
team to the road. They will stop as soon as they see the tank. As soon as you
hear that they spotted a tank, if you are not in the middle of something you
can jump to the AT guy, get rid of the tank and the supporting infantry around
it. That will make the friendly's tank trip safer.
Step 3: Mopping up
Now the village should be clear.
The tank will move through and you should hunt the last
survivors (if any). From this point on ... it's all easy.
All you have to do is crawl as sneakily as possible around
until you see the big helpless artillery pieces to the
north and east and them get rid of them with AT. If you
brought 2 AT teams, this should be easy.
The tank to the north
is so exposed you don't even need to get close to it.
Just slowly take the AT guy up north until you have a
clear shot and kill it.
At this point move your team back
south to the village with team 1 and leave them weapons
free. They'll be well covered and anybody that gets close
and tries to be funny will get a bad surprise.
The tank to the east is a little
trickier. You have to clean the infantry support first.
This tank is well hidden and it won't be as easy to reach.
keep an eye out for bad guys. The most direct approach
(north-east) is not the best. You have poor visibility
over the hill and enemies have cover and height advantage
over you. Move to the south instead and walk through
the rocks. Carefully peek around the rocks and pick them
off as they try to reach you.
Let them come to you, don't go to
There's about 4 of them in total.
After you got rid of the infantry, kill the tank.
