map shows the key locations and enemy resistance
On this mission, the first problem
you will encounter will be the thick fog. To maneuver
your team safely
through this obstacle it will take time and patience.
A good tactic to employ in these weather conditions
is to thoroughly check your surroundings before moving
slowly. Another good tip is to try and use your night
vision (v) to see just a little further past the fog,
also the night vision may highlight the enemy through
the heavy foliage.
the west island
First of all, switch to your lone rifleman on Charlie
team; you will use him to drop two enemies located
to the west of your insertion zone. Move your rifleman
west until through the fog, a fallen tree will become
visible, at this point hide in the bushes nearest
the water and lie down.
After waiting a few seconds, through
the fog a 2 man patrol should become clear. Make sure
you have the
M9sd to hand, as we don't want to alert the swamp to
If you have successfully concealed
yourself in the bushes, the 2 tangos should walk right
on by, but don't
let them get to far away.
Just after they have passed, stand upright, hold down
the 'shuffle' key (default key: Alt) so as not to alert
them, bring yourself within a comfortable distance
and place a bullet in the back of their skulls.
Tip: Soon after you drop the first
tango the other may hit the deck or run for cover if
you don't shoot
him fast enough.
If this happens, get on the floor to get a better shot
off and/or conceal yourself if he hasn't seen you already.
After you have done this bring the
rest of your patrol up to the same location. Make sure
the patrol is on
recon, and then bring the patrol up to RV1 in preparation
to flank the island.
Send Alpha team up the East side
of the island, Bravo and Charlie team will go up the
west. Make sure you
don’t make the teams go to far from the center
of the island or they may not spot all the enemies.
Once you think you have enough enemies in your sights
(your team should be on hold), switch your patrol to
suppress, your team should be able to drop most the
enemies in your area, but stay put for a while to make
sure there are no more enemies in your immediate area,
the noise from the firefight may also attract enemies
to your area.
After you are sure it’s safe,
continue to advance slowly up the island, make sure
your team is on recon,
if you encounter any more enemies employ the same tactic
Bring your team up to RV2 on the map, try to stay in
cover but keep your sights clear. After your sure it’s
safe to proceed, make your way very slowly and cautiously
to RV3 in preparation to clear the North island. Be
careful upon approaching RV3, there will be a bunker
occupied by around 2 enemies, when you take these guys
out from a distance, get ready for more possibly more
hostiles approaching (very probably from the east)
your position alerted due to the sound.
Clear North island
Here we will use the same tactic
to clear the North island as we did the West island.
Send Bravo and Charlie team up along the North side
of the island, and Alpha along the bottom making sure
your teams aren’t to far from the center so that
you are unlikely to miss any enemies.
After making your way slowly across the island gather
your team at RV4
X. Capture Russian officer
After scanning your surroundings, Alpha team north
round the little path marked on your map as “NP” towards
RV5, hold their position at RV5.
With Bravo team we are going to
raid the house at the middle of the swamp (marked ‘X’ on the
map), here we should find the Russian officer accompanied
by a number of bodyguards.
You should now send Bravo and
Charlie teams back around the north island ready
for an approach to the house
from the northwest.
Approach the front door of the
house, switch to your supportist with the M249.
First of all equip your frag grenades and throw one
in (it is important that you NEVER stand directly in
front of the door), straight away switch to your machine
gun and enter the building instantly opening fire and
spraying the room with bullets and quickly leave again,
make sure you don’t enter the building to far
otherwise the other member of Bravo will follow you
in and prevent you making a fast exit.
Continue to ‘frag and enter’ the
building as before while making sure the other members
are on suppress and are in a suitable position to cover
When advancing up the stairs DO NOT throw a frag over
the banister onto the top floor otherwise you will
eliminate the Russian officer.
If the officer is not present, check the map above
to see other possible locations of the officer.
It is advisable to capture the
Russian officer with your single Charlie rifleman.
After capturing the Russian officer make your way
with Bravo and Charlie teams up towards RV5 taking
care as you advance. If you encounter any resistance
on the way try to steer clear and evade them, otherwise
you could alert the whole of the east islands occupants
to your position (it could turn very messy all of
3. Clear East island.
Here we will use the same method
of clearing this island as we did the others, but
in this case we will take
much more care, this is because there are a lot
more people to kill ;-)
With each team spread an equal
distance across the island (advancing from top
to bottom), set
to recon and advance slowly down the island.
Once you feel you have enough
enemies in your sights open fire, but be sure to
hold your position (make
sure your team remain in cover ALWAYS). Hold
your position until you are sure that no more enemies
are close by
or advancing upon your position.
After you start getting towards
the bottom of the island there will be a bunker
manned by a
A good way to tackle this is to flank the bunker
and throw in a couple of frags from the sides
followed by suppressive fire.
After you have made sure no enemies are left alive
on the island, mission complete.
