Use KGB Map To Find Objectives

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

Poison Charkov

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.

8. ~ 11. Head To The Server Room - Tips

Use Office To Circle Around Guards

Use Office To Circle Around Guards

There will be 2 guards patrolling the inside of ther server room. Peak at corners and use the office layout to maneuver around them. Do not mind the other guard at the far side of the room as he will always remain in position.
