  6. After you get your next objective of eliminating the snipers, look around to the right for the red icons and go for the head on each sniper to take them down with one shot.

  6. Walk to the back corner and use the computers to obtain the launch plans. Turn behind you and take cover behind the boxes. After the two soldiers split up, wait for the one to walk to the back of the warehouse, then snipe him.
  7. Head back out the same doors you came in. Move along the gate towards the tank, then plant a charge on the side of it when you reach it. Move to the left side of the gate (next to the porta potties), head up and around the hill.
  8. Crawl the whole way to stay stealthy as you make your way towards the building. Wait for the soldier to walk out of the warehouse, then snipe him. Once you get underneath the stairs, you should see another soldier to the right of the tank—take him out.
  9. Quickly head inside and plant a charge on the tank. Walk around the tank and head out the other side. Move left to the nearby building and lay flat in the grass. When the soldier to the right has his back to you, turn left and stay down in the next patch of grass.
  10. There will be a solider right in front of you under the lights, but he shouldn’t see you. When there is no other nearby guards, snipe him. Stay prone and turn left along the building.
  11. Move all the way to the left (near the tall grass) and proceed forward toward the final target. Take cover behind the nearby boxes. After the soldiers have their discussion, wait for them to disperse, then plant the charge on the side of the tank.
  12. TROPHY: Head back the same way you came, but make sure you stay prone and in the grass the whole way or else they’ll spot you. Get to the extraction point to earn the “Eye in the Sky” Trophy and complete the mission.

Countdown

  1. Proceed forward along the right wall and turn right up the path. Stay to the right and take cover behind the stone wall. Tag the soldier to the left for one team, then tag the two other soldiers in front of you for the other team.
  2. Command your teams to attack, then shoot any other soldiers that sneak out. Once the area is clear, have your team regroup, head down the path (past the jeep) and walk through the walkway.
  3. Once in the water, turn left and stay along the left wall. Wait for the soldiers on the bridge to walk back across to the right, then tag them for gold team and command them to fire.
  4. Stay low and take out the two attacking soldiers that will come from under the arch. Head under the bridge and up the path where you just killed the two soldiers. Cut across the path and move up the stone steps on the right side.
  5. Move to the right and head around the large rock. Send your teams across the way as a diversion, then kill the two soldiers across the way. Hold your cover behind the rock and take out all enemy forces that come out from ruins.
  6. When the left side is clear, move you and your team up behind one of the stone walls for cover. Quickly take out the RGP up ahead, then continue down the path to the next checkpoint.
  7. Move to the right side and take cover behind the wall. Send blue team over to the wall on the other side and toss a grenade near the jeep to give them some protection. Clear the area and take the sniper out on the scaffolding before continugin up the path.
  8. As you cross the bridge, turn right up the path. This next part is a little tricky. When you get to the steel structure place gold team behind the sand bags to the right. Head left with blue team, across the path and take cover behind the shack.
  9. Peek around to the right and destroy the turrets that is firing RGPs first (these are located halfway up the hill). From there, use all of the surrounding red gas cans to your advantage and blow them up to cause explosions and hopefully kill most of the enemies.
  10. Once all enemies and turrets have been destroyed, head down the path. Resupply from the crate on the right, then continue up the hill.
  11. After you reach the checkpoint, cut right through the grass and follow the path around. As the path turns left (so that the large entrance to the ruins is to the right of you), move over to the wall of cover to the right with one team and keep another on the adjacent wall.
  12. Make sure you stay low here as you eliminate the snipers and RPGs up in the windows of the ruins. There may be times when either of your teams get pounded here; if that happens, spread them out to either side of the area where they will be out of harms way.
  13. Continue to slowly make your way up the hill. Once you’ve killed all attacking enemies, head through the main archway. After you make the first left turn, hug the wall right in front of you. Peek around to the left and throw a grenade at the attacking group of enemies.
  14. After you reach the checkpoint, crouch and take cover behind the wall to the left. Take out the group of attacking enemies across the way. Head downstairs and pick up the intel on the table on the left before heading upstairs.
  15. Head up the long set of stairs outside and kill the lone soldier next to the launcher. Turn right and spread your teams out in front of the walls in front of you. This part is tricky, but the secret is to kill all oncoming attackers before they reach you and your teams.
  16. Kill all attacking soldiers, then regroup around the launcher to complete the mission.

Animus

  1. Move forward and take cover behind the crane to the right. Send one team behind the large pipe to the left and use the rollers on the crane as cover to take out enemy forces coming out of the temple.
  2. Regroup with both teams behind the huge pipe and take the the RGP that will be hiding behind the last window on the left. Toss a grenade over the railing or wait for him to pop up and hit him with a headshot.
  3. Move left and head down the left side of the main road. After you pass the taxi, move onto the sidewalk and hug the nearby pillar for cover. Kill the three soldiers that come around the corner, then turn left at that corner.
  4. After you’ve reached the checkpoint, cross the street and have your teams take cover behind the large plaque with the chinese writing. You yourself should run straight for the statue in the middle of the area.
  5. As enemies come down both sides of the stairs, help your team pick them off. Head upstairs when the area is clear. Before you make the final left of the stairs, hug the wall and take out the soldiers that will come around the corner.
  6. After you reach the checkpoint, move across the bridge and head downstairs. Take cover behind the stack of boxes and place your teams behind the beat-up truck.
  7. Toss a couple grenades and clear out the enemies across the way. Regroup with your team and head into the parking garage. Take cover behind the taxi and place a team behind the black car.
  8. Take out the attacking soldiers, then head up the two ramps. After you head up the third ramp (and reach the checkpoint), walk up with your team and take out the group of soldiers behind the two cars.
  9. Head up the final ramp to the roof and crouch behind the wall to the right. Peek over, aim at the armored vehicle near the stairs and hold R2 to call in an airstrike.
  10. Move to the right down the wall. Spread your teams out along the wall to give you covering fire while you take out the other four vehicles. Keep in mind that there will be enemy snipers spread out along the roof.
  11. Make your life easier by taking out some of the snipers first, and keep in mind that enemy soldiers will come up onto the roof from the stairs to the left.
  12. After you destroy all five vehicles, quickly make your way over to the left and take cover behind the wall in front of the walkway. Have one team with you and place another in front of the vending machine.
  13. Chuck a couple of grenades down the walkway when the huge swarm of attackers come charging in on you. Move up to the main wall and eliminate the rest of the snipers on the opposing room before heading downstairs.
  14. Cross the street and head through the first archway. Following the cutscene, turn left into the first room, then another left into the next room.
  15. TROPHY: For the end of the game, you can choose between two endings in which you will receive two different countries. If you choose to kill Gorman, you’ll earn the “Executioner” Trophy. However, if you spare his life, you’ll earn the “Peace Keeper” Trophy.

A third-person shooter without tactical fighting like you would find in 007: Blood Stone.
