Strike Force Missions


  1. You’ll be aboard the USS Barack Obama. As you chat with Menendez in the interrogation room, the ship will come under attack. He’ll escape his shackles and take Salazar hostage. Menendez will knock you out.
  2. As you come to, Salazar wakes you up. Access the footlocker and grab the electrical knuckle duster. Enter the armory and take whatever weapon you want. When you’re done, open the door Salazar is standing next to. Eliminate the enemies in the corridor as you push forward.
  3. Continue down the corridor past the blue couches, then head up the stairs. Salazar and Mason will split up. Go up and you’ll see the attack happening outside. Follow the path of the balcony and eliminate the numerous enemies through the corridor. Head through the next door, which is cracked open a bit.
  4. You’ll enter the comm room where enemies and a turret will be lying in wait. To the right is a panel. You can access the turret and clear the room. Stay to the right of the room. You’ll immediately see INTEL on the desk, which leads to the ship’s systems panel. Use the panel.
  5. After accessing it, move down the stairs. You’ll come upon another balcony with a sniper rifle leaning on the wall. Grab it and provide overwatch for the troops on the ground. Once you’re done, continue down the path into a room where a group of enemies are held.
  6. Move down the stairs to the bowels of the ship. Clear the corridor, then proceed forward, continuing to make your way down past the American flag hung on the wall. The rooms ahead are flooded. Clear the area, then enter the next one with red pipes abound. On your way, access the panel to take control of a turret.
  7. Make your way down, passing by the red pipes. Follow the path to the terminal and Mason will ask about the security feed.
  8. As Raul Menendez, you’ll sneak up behind Briggs and take him hostage. You’ll also find out that Salazar is a traitor. From here you can either kill Briggs or wound him, by shooting him in the leg. Raul will then upload a virus into the system.
  9. Mason witnesses everything. Move through the vents. When you exit the vents, you’ll reach the room where Briggs is. Access the terminal as Harper arrives. Pair up with Harper as you move down the stairs. You’ll see Harper go down a corridor that’s lit up red. Don’t go down yet. Instead, head upstairs on the right into a small office area where there’s some INTEL waiting for you.
  10. Head down to where Harper went to find Salazar. Harper will shoot him. Head to the elevator that leads to the flight deck. Take cover with the water to your back. Aim up and pick off the enemies shooting down at you.
  11. When the elevator comes up, clear the way. There’s an outpost on the left which you can access to gain control of a drone. If you head toward the right side of the deck, look for a VTOL that’s labeled 4737 on the back wing. There’s INTEL inside.
  12. Use the VTOLs for cover as you clear the deck of the ship. Shoot your way to the VTOL you need to get to, and you’ll take off.

11.Soon enough, you’ll be in control of Mason again as he drives the truck. Harper will mention avoiding the fire. To do this, immediately head right as you pass by under the fire. You’ll reach the evac site past the flares. You’ll see Zhao. IN THE ABOVE, I CANNOT GET TO THE EVAC SITE AFTER FINNISHING THE DRIVING. HELP!

When the driving sequence completes, you’ll reach the evac site automatically. There are no other locations to drive to — the site with the Chinese ambush is the evac site. It should happen in a cutscene when the driving sequence is done, is there a technical problem keeping you from reaching the site, or is there another problem?
