    1. You wake up in a daze as Frost. Follow Sandman and we’ll re-live the events that happened 20 minutes in the past. You’re now in a helicopter about to touch down on a rooftop. When you land eliminate the enemies in the windows as well as the rooftop that you just landed on. When it’s clear, head up the stairs.

    2. You’ll enter a ruined office building. A group of enemies will then swarm the room. Use cover and whittle them away. There’s a ramp where the ceiling collapsed. Climb it and take out the enemies here, room to room. Push forward with your crew and follow Sandman as you keep climbing the building. Run up the set of stairs to the way-point. You’ll reach the rooftop. Clear the area, then run to the overwatch position to provide cover for team Granite. Switch to your sniper rifle and take out the enemies on the rooftop across the way where it says “Targets”.

    3. When the roof is clear, Granite will drop. Keep an eye out on the door to the left where Granite landed. Aim down there and all the enemies will be clustered, which should provide easy pickings. T-90s will then be firing on Granite’s position down on the road. You’ll request a fire mission that will be given the green light.

    4. Look for the tank, then press “4″ to activate the gun run. Mark the first point, then the second, and the gunfire will move in that direction. Take out the tank. Two more tanks will appear. Do the same thing and for good fun, try to take out the ground troops as well. Keep an eye on Granite, but unfortunately they won’t make it.

    5. It’s up to our crew now to get Athena. Follow the way-point and rappel down the building with the squad. Run down the path to the next way-point. Turn right on the stairs and drop down to the road. German tanks can’t advance with the Russian tank firing on them. Run down to the blue car and grab the RPG. Aim at the tank and destroy it. Now you can take out any enemies that you see along the way as you make it to the next way-point.

    6. You’ll see the German tanks when you reach the way-point. Follow the tanks as they move down the road. Use plenty of cover here. Take the left hand side of the road as you clear the way and enter the room there. There’s some intel you can grab. Head back out to the road following the tanks and take out any enemies you spot. Try using the bus in the middle of the road to get a good position.

    7. The Russians will start falling back so push forward. Keep following the tank, but when you reach it, a huge explosion will occur, knocking down the building above you. The past is now the present. Follow Sandman through the rubble of the ruined building. As you reach the end, Sandman will bust open a door and you’ll see the hotel, where the president’s daughter is.

    8. Head inside, kill any enemies in your way, and follow the way-point as you head up. You’ll reach some winding stairs. Climb them. You’re getting close. Make a left into the hallway and breach the door. Press “F” to do so, but it will have a negative effect. Shoot the two enemies with your pistol as you lay on the ground. Watch the rest of the cut-scene.

    Protip: If you make a text walkthrough make it all encompassing. This means without deferring to the video with “watch what happens now” and the like.

    The whole point of a text walkthrough is to replace the visuals yes ? Some people may be tethering the internet from their phone and with download limits and poor reception dont have the luxury of watching the video.

    Hi…stuck on Iron Lady….never saw tanks on the bridge, I get two trucks. when I use the javelin I can only lock on either the helicopters or the trucks….each shot with the javelin at helicopters hits the tower, not the helicopters…then I kill wave after wave of troops coming across the bridge, after about 30 minutes, no more troops come over the bridge…but nothing else either, and I never get picked up by the good guys. Volk is still alive…
    Any suggestions? Thanks!

    Hi Chris,

    The videos are only supplementary, you never need to watch them to see what needs to be done in the game, it’s all in the text. I know that not everyone wants to watch (Or even has the ability) to watch the videos.

    ‘Click’ or ‘klick’ is military jargon for ‘kilometer’, which is one thousand meters.
