To clear out a room, stand besides the door, as one
of your teammates would have if you told him to clear out a room.
Make sure that your clip is full and the action icon does not
have the brackets around it, so your teammates will not open it
for you and take fire. Finally, make sure that all of your teammates
are stacked up properly:
(for double doors) _____ (for single doors) ___
* * * * *
* * *
Then, rush the room with thermal/night vision (your choice) on
and scan left to right for enemies. Then, strafe to the left of
the door to let your teammates in. Next, walk around the perimeter
of the room and when your teammates say threat neutralized (on
some smaller rooms they do not say anything), your work is done.
Garage: Capturing Emilio Vargas
In order to capture Vargas you need to move fast. This
will cause you to take some damage, but to take out enemies quickly
use the HE grenade launcher or the Red Phosphorus grenade launcher.
Use it on groups of enemies as you are chasing after him. This
works best on the two guards in the cafeteria style room; if you
have not caught him yet, you can shoot the grenade off the wall
and take both out without stopping.
Meat Packing Plant: Finding hidden
After you rescue the second hostage, you have to go
into a giant freezer. Take out the guards on the cat-walk then
get into the crouching position. Turn on your thermal imaging
goggles. There will be guards, but they will be blacked out by
mist and the carcasses of dead cows. However, with the goggles
you can see their feet. Shooting them in the feet or legs enough
times will kill them, saving you and your men from exposure.
On the first level that you are in an oil refinery,
take an HE grenade launcher as your secondary weapon. At the end
when the enemies fire RPGs, take it out. Step out from under the
roof area so that enemy fires an RPG. Three enemies will appear.
Shoot an HE round to kill them. Move back under the roof, reload
you HE Grenade launcher, and wait until a second RPG is fired.
Move around the corner and with your HE grenade launcher and shoot
the man that is standing there. Turn around, and when the garage
door opens, shoot the barrels on the right side with your primary
weapon. Kill all enemies, secure the hostage, and the level will
be completed. Note: It recommended that you save the game when
you open the door that leads to the RPG area.
Penthouse: Easier kills
Even though you are told "no shooting" in
this level, there is a surprise later where you have to shoot
to first save someone then escape. Because of this, change your
secondary weapon to either the Desert Eagle or SR-2. This way
you will not have to shoot someone four times to kill him with
a weak silenced pistol.
After every fire fight, reload even if you have 22
rounds remaining. If you keep doing this, you should have enough
ammunition for the long fire fights and levels.
If you are going into a total building level such as
the Crespo Foundation, take along a shotgun or a submachine gun.
The reticule does not shrink as much when you move with an assault
rifle. You will move around a lot in buildings and room clearing.
For places like an oil refinery, which has big indoor rooms and
some outdoor areas, take an assault rifle that is compact to carry
a punch but is still semi-maneuverable in rooms. In industrial
indoor settings, take a sub that is good for big rooms and is
still effective for small rooms. In total building settings, take
along a shotgun. Its targeting reticule barely shrinks when you
Glitch: Exploding bullet sound
Throw a WP grenade and switch back to your primary
weapon as it explodes. If timed correctly, when you fire your
weapon it will sound like a WP grenade is exploding, and when
you reload it sounds like the pin to a grenade is being pulled.
Switching back to grenades ends this.
Glitch: Mission version of level
During create a match, select "Mission" for
a game type, then switch to the map choser and switch out. Then,
select the "Team Survival Mode" option and chose either
"Old City" or "Import/Export". You will get
the mission version of that level. Note: This only works with
those two levels.
Glitch: Land in float
In multi-player mode (split screen or online), there
is a ladder at the Carnival level. Climb it and if someone is
standing under you, jump off their head. You can land inside a
float. Once inside you can shoot people, but they cannot shoot
you unless they are also on the inside.
