Operation Harbinger Tips

Things to Remember Before the Operation

Choose Roles For Offense

Choose Roles for Offense

It would be best to choose roles that would maximize the team's offensive capabilities. You will be facing several armored enemies such as IAVs and Juggernauts. One member can be a medic for sustain, but everyone else should focus on offense.

Recommended Roles

RoleReason for Recommendation
DemolitionThermite Launcher can quickly melt through armored enemy's health
AssaultStopping Power Rounds allow team to quickly dispatch tons of enemies. Great for crowd control
EngineerDrone is useful for taking down vehicles; a common enemy in this operation
MedicEasily revive teammates to get out of tight spots

Turn On Voice Chat

It is highly recommended to turn on the voice chat feature from your settings. This will allow you to better communicate with your team and adjust your strategy on-the-fly!

2~5. Looking For Intel

Keep An Eye Out For Cash & Documents

Keep an Eye Out For Cash & Documents

Keep an eye out for cash and documents while defending your position. Scanning them will lessen the timer by 30 seconds. Lessening the time it takes to triangulate the informant's location will allow your team to relocate to a safer location much faster!

Watch Out for Tripwire Traps

Watch Out For Tripwire Traps

Be careful when exploring the buildings. Some pathways will be blocked with Tripwire Traps that will instantly down you if triggered. Move slowly and disarm the traps to avoid taking heavy damage!

Use Buildings as Choke Points

Use Buildings as Choke Points

While holed up in these buildings, you can use them as choke points since enemies will likely file in through the doorways or take some time vaulting through windows. Use this to your advantage to rack up kills while defending yourself.

Assign a Dedicated Anti-Tank Member

The Demolition and Engineer in the team can use their special skills to make quick work of the IAVs harassing you from outside. Both the Thermite Launcher and Drone can easily take out the heavily armored vehicles!

Use Launchers to Deal Damage to Vehicles

Use Launchers to Deal With Vehicles

Alternatively, you can bring along a PILA as part of your loadout to deal with the tanks yourself. If no one on the team has a launcher or thermite, pick up a fallen enemy's RPG instead!

7. Retrieving the Informant

Use Killstreaks to Stop the Convoy

Use Killstreaks to Stop the Convoy

The convoy will be moving around the map, making it difficult for you and your team to retrieve the informant. However, having a killstreak such as the Cruise Missile will allow you to easily destroy the convoy since you can guide it. This will not harm the informant.

Carrying Informant Restricts Movement

Carrying Informant Restricts Movement

Carrying the informant will restrict your movement speed and ability to aim down your sights. It would be best to let your other teammates go ahead and clear a path for you while you carry the informant.

8. Heading to the Extraction Point

Focus Fire On The Juggernauts

Focus Fire on the Juggernauts

There will be a few Juggernauts blocking your path to the extraction point. Focus fire on these enemies first to eliminate the biggest threat in the mission!

9. Heading to the Safehouse

No Need to Fight

No Need to Fight

After extracting the informant, you will need to head to the safehouse. Focus on getting to the safehouse and avoid fighting. Equip yourself with an armor vest to increase the damage that you can sustain from enemies firing at you!
