Move Through the Base with the Grappling Hook
Avoid having to fight the many hostiles in the port by zipping through the base and just heading straight to the console. This will conserve your bullets and health for later parts of the quest.
2. Flip the 2 Breakers - Hint & Tips
Pull the Yellow Lever to Activate the Breaker
To activate the breakers, you will need to pull up the yellow lever on its bottom. You can do this by using the grappling hook to bring it up.
3. Hack the Console - Hint & Tips
Stay Inside the Console's Range to Complete the Hack
You need to stay inside the range of the console in order for the hack to continue. Going outside of it will stop the hacking and will only start again once you go back in range.
Move Across the Covers to Protect Yourself
There will be enemies from all sides so it's not advisable to stay in one place during the hacking. Move around between cover to protect yourself from enemy fire. You can also find better spots to shoot down enemies by doing this.
Prioritize Taking Down Snipers
Snipers will track your movement and can deal a lot of damage in one shot. Prioritize killing them first during the hacking sequence. You can pinpoint their location through their laser points.

1. Bring the Warship to the Maintenance Bay - Hint & Tips
Turn Right After Leaving the Dock
You can find the Maintenance Bay right in the middle of the port. Upon sailing into the open ocean, turn right to find the port's docks and the maintenance bay!
2. Defend the Warship - Hint & Tips
Take Down the Ships & Helicopters ASAP
Helicopters and small ships can do more damage to the warship than the henchmen on the port. Take care of the ships and helicopters with the cannon as soon as they appear to minimize damage to the warship.
The Mission Will Fail if the Warship is Sunk
Keep track of the Warship's health as the mission will fail if it gets sunk by the Blackhand before the transmission is over. There's no way to raise its health so be mindful when defending it against enemies.
3. Destroy the Jammers - Hint & Tips
Quickly Destroy the Jammers
Enemies will continue to shoot down the warship while you're out dealing with the Jammers so time is of the essence. The Jammers can be blown up faster by using explosives and heavy weapons.
Cover More Ground with the Grappling Hook
The jammers are spread across the base so you have to move between them fast. Zip through the base with the Grappling Hook to get to each one faster.
