Turn on Voice Chat

Turn on voice chat to better communicate with your team. Strategize on-the-fly and make quick adjustments to your game plan as the mission goes on.

1.Before Exiting Safehouse

Attach Suppressors to Weapons

Attach Suppressors to Weapons

Before exiting the warehouse, make sure to attach suppressors to your weapons. This will silence your shots, making you harder to detect in the early parts of the mission. It is recommended to stay hidden for as long as you can during the mission.

2. Hack Enemy Comms On Roof

Shoot Down Enemies Before Reaching the Comms

Shoot down unsuspecting enemies while making your way to the roof. They will immediately alert their allies when they see you. Once you have a clear shot, take them out immediately.

Stay Close to the Comms

Stay Close to the Comms

Make sure to stay close to the comms while hacking it. The more people close to the comms, the faster it will be able to copy the files.

3. Hacking Main Terminal Comms

Watch Out For Juggernauts

Watch Out For Juggernauts

There will be multiple Juggernauts in this area. It is advised to focus your fire on them to quickly bring them down. Killing the Juggernaut will also drop a minigun which you can use to kill other enemies in the area.

There is a Safe Room Behind the Comms

There is a Safe Room Behind the Comms

Use the small room behind the comms as a safe space and choke point. Several enemies will try to enter the room in single file, making it easy for you to deal with them.

4. Infiltrating the Plane

Use ATVs to Get to the Plane

Use ATVs to Get on the Plane

Use the ATVs located near the tent to quickly reach the plane before it takes off. The plane will lower a ramp which you can use to get into the plane.

5. Locating the Nuclear Core

You Are On A Timer

You Are On A Timer

You will be on a timer while looking for the Nuclear Core on the plane. You will have approximately 3 minutes to locate the core and escape the plan. Be ready to run!

You Will Fight In Enclosed Spaces

You Will Fight in Enclosed Spaces

Encounters in this section of the mission will be happening in tight enclosed spaces. Use weapons that are excellent in close to mid range to defeat enemies quickly.

Nuclear Core is in the Lower Floor

Nuclear Core is in the Lower Floor

The Nuclear Core can be found in a warhead on the lower floors. It will be just before you reach the end of the plane. Make sure to grab it before reaching the end.

Destroy Hatch to Escape Plane

Destroy Hatch to Escape the Plane

Once you reach the end of the plane, look to your left to find a hatch. You can place a charge on this door to open it. Once it is opened, jump through it to make your escape!

7. Shooting Down Enemy Chopper

Use Launchers to Down Chopper

Keep an eye out for launchers to use against the chopper. Launchers like the JOKR are especially useful since this weapon can lock onto the chopper.

8. Holding Your Ground

You Cannot Shoot If You're Holding the Core

If you are holding the core during this section, you will not be able to shoot. Ask your teammates to cover you while you hold on to the core. You will also drop the core if you are downed during this part of the mission. Make sure someone picks it up!

Use Close to Midrange Weapons

It is recommended to use close to mid range weapons while in this part of the mission. Since the map will be quite open with a few obstacles, weapons effective in this range will be able to help you survive.
