4. ~ 18. Navigate Through The Building - Tips
Use KGB Map To Find Objectives
For half the mission, you will need to complete objectives around the headquarters to prevent Belikov from being discovered. Use the map to find locations and the objectives you need to complete.
Alternative: Poison Route
One of the solutions to this mission is to poison Charkov for the key to the bunker. You can do so by visiting Kravchenko's office and getting the Nova-6 poison there. However, we recommend the framing Charkov route as you can easily get an Operation Red Circus evidence while doing it.Check Out The Poison Cabinet Code Here!
