1. Protect the Sandstinger - Hint & Tips
Use Cannons to Destroy Barricades, Enemy Vehicles
For this objective, you will have to man the Sandstinger's cannon. Keep on your toes as you're the train's only defense against enemies! There will also be barricades that you have to destroy on your way.
Mission will Fail if Train / Cannon is Destroyed
Keep an eye on the health of both the train and the cannon as any of these being destroyed will immediately fail the mission. Make sure to destroy threats as soon as they appear to mitigate damage.
Time Your Shots to Destroy Jets
Jets will bombard you when the train has to stop to make repairs. They're quite fast compared to helicopters, requiring you to time your shots to hit them. Lead your aim a bit further from where they are to get the shots!
