    What you see here. I (probably) have many bugs and errors. I still need to work
    on "Death of an Agent".
    Hello. This guide just explains tips and walkthroughs on how to get platinums on
    the missions NOT how to beat them and go through them. There are other
    walkthroughs for that. On some of them it will explain how to get gold, but on
    places that are very easy to get gold, I won't even bother explaining. These
    walkthroughs make it easier to get platinum/gold but it's not required doing it
    the way I explain it. For example you can blaze right through the 9th mission if
    you can complete it that way easier than going slower (though I doubt anybody
    could get platinum on that level going really fast). Another thing, NEVER expect
    to get platinum first try. Especially on levels with 3-5 stars. Also, NEVER
    expect all these guides to work for you. Anyways, on to the missions.
    Ground Zero
    Difficulty: *
    Platinum Requirement: Take 500 damage or less
    Easy way too easy. But then again, it's the first level so that's what you
    should expect.
    I would write a walkthrough on it, but it would be just like any regular
    walkthrough for this level. The only tip I have is to be more cautious going
    through the level. Also don't bother destroying the turret at the end. Just run.
    A Long Way Down
    Difficulty: **
    Platinum Requirement: Finish Mission in 3:30
    Although the level is a little hard, the platinum requirement isn't too harsh.
    Once you're at the bottom of the building, run straight towards your objective
    killing the people around the vent. Put the charge in and rappel straight down.
    Go down as fast as you can and keep going until you hit the flame vents. Grab
    the body armor. Take out a grenade and run towards the area to shut it off. Blow
    up the 3 people there and shoot them if they survived. Shut off the vents and
    take cover. Take out anybody you see. You should have plenty of time. Once
    nobody is in sight run straight towards the end without thinking about other
    people in your way. You should have plenty of time left over.
    Train Chase
    Difficulty: *
    Platinum Requirement: Finish Mission in 2:15
    Easy. Just easy.
    Take the motorcycle as it is much faster, and the route is easier. Once you get
    to the airport (or whatever it is), make sure you follow the other motorcycles
    and not go right. Get the 1st and 3rd bond moments. That's all the advice you'll
    An Old Friend
    Difficulty: ****
    Platinum Requirement: Take no damage
    Very difficult because a little mistake causing you to get shot once will ruin
    the objective and you will have to start all over.
    At the very beginning you can stealth disable everyone without them noticing,
    but I like to just throw a grenade at them to kill them all. It does take a
    little time to get the timing right. I would say you should detonate it right
    when Bond's arm goes near his hip. Destroy 6 consoles and grab the desert
    eagles. Crouch and go to the next room. Do stealth on the guy to the right and
    equip the desert eagle while you're doing so. Crouch again and shoot the nearest
    guy once or twice thus killing him. The next guy will be shooting at you, but he
    won't hit you since you're crouching. After he's dead crouch and go through the
    next door.
    Do some stealth on the guy to the left and take cover ahead behind the crates.
    Wait for a guy to come patrolling and shoot him in the head with a silenced P99
    (adjust w/right analog stick). If done correctly, nobody else will come. Go
    through the next door while crouching. Take cover and shoot the guy coming at
    the left in the head. Run towards him and another guard should be there. Shoot
    him and take cover at the long part of the machine (not the short). There should
    be another person coming. Shoot him before he gets close to you. Nobody else
    should come. Now, take your favorite weapon, turn on thermovision, and go into
    the next part. Do not crouch. Once you go through, go right into bond sense and
    lock on the guy at the right (locking will take you out of bond sense) and shoot
    him once you lock on him. It's very hard to do without getting hit. Now quickly
    take cover and shoot anybody that starts to come towards you. If you did it
    right, then you get the platinum objective (it's completed before you meet Jaws).
    Sand Storm
    Difficulty: *
    Platinum Requirement: Defeat the general in 0:45
    Too easy. But it's an early mission so what's to expect?
    Don't bother to attack him before you get to him. You'll only waste your ammo.
    Take out the shield generators with the missiles and use bombs once you're out
    of missiles. If you use bombs, then stop right above him and don't move.
    Serena St. Germaine
    Difficulty: ***
    Platinum Requirement: Finish mission from the hotel in 1:55
    Yes it is a little difficult and it will take a while, but it's not going to be
    really frustrating.
    Just make sure you go through the level without anybody slowing you down. Taking
    the 2nd bond moment will help, but not by that much. It might even slow you down
    depending on how well you are at maneuvering. Get to the tank cutscene by 0:44
    and you should be good.
    Difficulty: ****
    Platinum Requirement: Finish mission in 4:00
    Very difficult. Mainly because of one part.
    At the very beginning, run straight through the dark hallway thing to kill the
    first guard. For the next part go relatively quick, but take a little time so
    you won't get slaughtered. As you are going up the next wall, take out your
    sleeper dart and shoot the guy in front of you with it once you get up. Then
    quickly change your weapons (via bond sense) and shoot the guy at the right and
    take cover at that little wall. Shoot down 2 of the guards and take the 3rd one
    out while you are still going. Once you get up the next wall, be prepared for a
    guy rappeling down from above. Once he's dead, get the body armor and rappel up.
    Take out the AK74 to kill the rocket guard up ahead because it has a longer
    range than your other weapons. Push the cart and go into bond sense after a
    little while. Target the building at the right and shoot it completing an
    objective and getting a bond moment. The next 3 guys are relatively hard to
    kill, but there's no special or secret way to easily kill them. Rappel up and
    watch the 3 guards to come out of the room and kill them with a machine gun as
    they do. Rappel up to the next part and shoot out the guy ahead of you and kill
    the next guy.
    Now here's the hard part. You must have at least half of your life in order to
    survive. As you're rappelling up, take your sleeper darts and shoot either the
    left or right guy. Go into bond sense and grab a strobe grenade. Run around for
    a second then go back into bond sense and target the middle guy and throw the
    grenade at him. Kill the 2 guys then grab the body armor and the uplink, and
    rappel down. Kill the guy in front of you with the MP5K and rappel down (ignore
    the rappelers). You should have about 1:00 by now Keep going while killing the
    guys with that gun and make sure you don't forget to install the uplink. As you
    rappel down, if you have 0:30, then you need to rush this part. If you have any
    time higher than that, take cover until it's 0:32. You may however be able to
    finish it with 0:25, but it's not too likely, unless you don't get the body
    armor. Take out the guys coming at you. Once you are finished, get the body
    armor and finish the level ignoring everyone else.
    The Ruined Tower
    Difficulty: *****
    Platinum Requirement: Fire 10 rounds or less
    What!? This difficulty this early? Yes. It is very, very difficult. This place
    was the last place I got platinum on so don't expect it to be very easy.
    At the beginning wait for the 1st person to turn around before you stealth
    disable him. If the other person notices, then he runs right up to you, and
    turns around ready to be stealth disabled. If he doesn't then just go up and
    kill him stealthily. You get a bond moment doing this. Go out of the building
    and head to the right while crouching. Stop for a second and wait for the guy to
    pass by and do some stealth on him. Now wait behind the ruins as the other guy
    notices that one of his guys is dead and disable him while he's checking him.
    You should get another bond moment.
    Rappel up to the sniper area, grab the sniper rifle, and shoot the rocketeer.
    Rappel back down and keep going until you get to the column while going up the
    ramp thing. Take cover as some guards will run up to you. Take them out as they
    get right next to you. Once there aren't any more guys coming after you, go up
    back to the sniper ledge and grab the body armor, even if you don't really need
    it. Go back down and pull out your desert eagle. Run straight to the next rappel
    point while killing the 1 or 2 guards around the rappel area with the desert
    eagle (use 3-4 shots max). Quickly rappel up, duck and take cover from the guys
    below. If done correctly, you will take minimum damage.
    If you don't see anybody coming after you, then send a Q spider next to the
    armor but don't get it. Instead just leave it there until you need it, unless
    you need it now. Go and take cover from the guys ahead of you and use a melee
    attack on the first person that comes right next to you. Shoot the next guy with
    a desert eagle. Run up to the behind cover just as he puts his head back down
    when he's looking. Smack him against the wall and run up to the next cover that
    isn't a nook in the wall. Take out your desert eagle and take out anyone that
    comes after you with it. You can also use sleeper darts. Leave at least 3 shots
    left. If you can't, kill the next Once the coast is clear and you got the body
    armor from the Q spider, and the other one in between the 2 ruin things, you're
    good to go. However DO NOT GET THE ROCKET LAUNCHER. Doing so will result in more
    people coming after you.
    Head down and move the cart. Wait a little while for the cart to hit the wall.
    Run outside and get blown by the rocketeer and shot. It's okay because you have
    full life and you're right next to a body armor. Grab the body armor and pull
    out your desert eagle. Run towards the end of the level and shoot the guys in
    your way but leave 1 shot to shoot the dynamite to open the wall. Go inside to
    end the mission.
    Death of an Agent
    Difficulty: *****
    Platinum Requirement: Take 100 damage or less
    5 stars again?! Yes it is that difficult. Mainly the catacombs part is the hard
    At the very beginning send a spider through up above the guards and drop it on
    them to get a bond moment. Go down the stairs and shoot the guy at the bottom
    while you're at it. Talk to 003 and see him die. Take out the next guard before
    he notices you and shoots you. I prefer to kill the next 2 guards really quickly
    but if you like to go slow, then go slow. However once you killed those 3
    guards, run through the level and shoot the 2 guards that run from you before
    they take cover and become difficult to kill without taking damage. Grab the
    body armor and sig 552 (even though you won't need the body armor). Take cover
    at the wall and shoot the guys with the sig 552. Once you can't lock onto any
    more guards, run straight to the catacombs even though there are guards coming
    after you (they won't follow you into the catacombs).
    Look at the map I have of the catacombs at the bottom of this FAQ.
    Once you get out, do NOT open the door using the lever yet. Scour the area first
    for guards, then pull the lever. After you pull the lever, take cover the whole
    time and use grenades if you have any left. Also getting the 3rd bond moment
    (blowing up the gas canister while a guy is next to it) will help. Once you've
    killed all the enemies, go through with the level.
    Note: You do not have to worry about the goal during the leap of faith because
    it is already done.
    A Show of Force
    Difficulty: **
    Platinum Requirement: Get to the plane from 003's hideout in 0:45
    It may take you a little while to do it, but it shouldn't be too hard.
    Once you've completed the first part of the mission, get on the bike and head
    right. At the intersection, a vehicle will drive up in front of your face, but
    you can just avoid it by heading to the right. Take the little jump as you keep
    going and go straight into the path in the woods giving you a bond moment. Right
    when you get back onto the road, veer to the right and once you see the gate,
    head to the very left just going in between the wall and the gate. Doing this
    will save you a bunch of time, and you will be going very quickly. If you have
    0:07 (how ironic) or greater, then you will probably make it into the plane.
    Note: The plane doors do NOT have to be completely open. I usually get in the
    plane while the doors are half way open.
    Mardi Gras Mayhem
    Difficulty: **
    Platinum Requirement: Get to the truck from the phone in 0:40
    If you binge it the whole way, and don't run into anything, and take the correct
    path, it will be very easy.
    Once you get back in the car and the platinum timer is starting, immediately
    back up and get out of there and turn right. Follow the road until you can go
    right and into a hall-like area. Go through there to get a bond moment. Once
    there's the little cutscene, head straight and don't move to the left or right.
    After you jump out and hit the ground, go right at about 50 degrees just veering
    right of the center part of the square. Once you're back on the road, hug the
    building and make a quick left once you know you can get to the shiny blue
    circle. If you get there in time, then the platinum objective is complete. Also
    you'll probably have enough time to put the car into the truck. Now just
    complete the rest of the mission and (obviously) don't restart the mission. If
    you fail, then you don't get mad because you didn't lose that much of your time.
    The Kiss Kiss Club
    Difficulty: ****
    Platinum Requirement: Use no ammo
    Ugh. No ammo at all. It's still fun doing it though, that's why it is rated 4
    stars and not 5, however it is very annoying and you might want to do something
    else and later come back to it after playing it for a while.
    Start by giving the lady a massage (so she won't raise the alarm by yelling
    "Intruder!") and head to the left and just before the door, crouch. Stealth
    disable the guy waiting there, uncrouch for 1 second and crouch again. If you
    timed it right you can kill the next person without having another guard see
    you. It usually won't matter if you get seen or not. If you're seen just start
    running and smack the person waiting there. If not, just stealth disable that
    guy. Either way, unlock the door and there will be a guy sneaking up behind you.
    Run towards him and use wall cover at the door. After killing him run downstairs
    (or if there are guys running at you, kill them first. There are 2 guys crowbars
    so it isn't a problem killing them, except for the guy that comes with a gun)
    and charge after the dude with the desert eagle while trying to dodge his shots.
    Grab the body armor behind the counter if you need it. Open the door and SKIP
    THE CUTSCENE. During the cutscene, bond fires 2 rounds of p99 and it counts as
    you firing.
    While crouching, go to the left and bring down the lights (killing 3 people, if
    not restart) DO NOT GRAB THE BODY ARMOR HERE YET, run towards the guy on the
    ground that is still alive while staying left of the columns and smack him. If
    you take too much damage trying to kill him then restart. Afterwards there are 2
    people left and they are on the balconies on the opposite sides. The person
    opposite of you only take one thrown bottle to kill while the other one takes 2
    bottles (unless you're quick enough and got power mode). Immediately take cover
    behind a column and grab a bottle while he's not shooting or when he's
    reloading. Run up and throw a bottle at him (remember do not use R1 to attack,
    use X) and go back under that balcony. Grab another bottle and repeat on the
    other person, he won't die so just grab another bottle either under or near the
    balcony and kill him. Now there are no enemies coming after you. For now. Grab
    the body armor and go up the elevator.
    Head towards the room with the keycard and a guy with a shotgun should pop up.
    If you go fast enough you can hurl him against the wall without getting hurt.
    Head towards the keycard room but don't go in it. Some guys with crowbars should
    start coming but they aren't very hard to kill. Just counter their attacks and
    get power mode. Run right for the guard and kill him. You will probably take
    damage but you won't really take that much because of power mode. Grab the
    keycard and armor (in the corner near the window and the keycard) and start
    running back towards the elevator.
    Once you have gone back down there will be about 15 guys with crowbars but don't
    panic. Run towards the stage where Mya sings but don't use the keycard yet. Kill
    the guards until you can't see any more. If you haven't grabbed the battery
    around here, do so. Now use the keycard and there will be 2 guys waiting. 1 guy
    melee guy and a guy with a pistol. Once you kill these guys, if you didn't use
    your nano suit during the previous parts of the level at all, the next guys that
    ambush you should be hardly any problem. Turn on your nano suit and toggle
    between ducking and running so your nano suit won't lose its effect and so you
    can go quick enough. Once you get to the door, end mission.  Phew!
    Death's Door
    Difficulty: ****
    Platinum Objective: Finish mission in 3:15
    Very difficult to do. Mainly because of the number of enemies that ambush you,
    and the time restriction.
    Once the mission starts, take cover and shoot the guy in the head. Quickly get
    out of cover and run towards the guy that's running away and shoot him down.
    After you pass the opened gate, there will be 2 guys at the left to shoot. Cross
    the tiny bridge and go to the left where the guy will be somersaulting towards
    you. Use melee attacks to kill him. Go in the building and kill the guy at the
    right first w/o using melee attacks (because he has a shotgun). Turn to the left
    and shoot that guy out. Run outside (don't grab the body armor) and keep going
    through the level. Memorize the positions of the people here and kill them
    really quickly. You will get hurt a lot by killing them very fast, but just grab
    the body armor there. Now run back a little bit and take out the sniper on the
    roof through the closed gate. It doesn't matter if you take out the sniper on
    the clock tower before you go up there. Once you get the skeleton key, go back
    down and remember the places of the guards so you won't get ambushed. Go ahead
    and take a little bit of time killing the people around here while you're going
    back to the dark building because they are hard to kill. Just before you go into
    the building, grab the body armor using the spider and leave the spider there to
    save time. Once you go into the building, kill the guy that rolls into your
    face, then kill the sniper next. Before you go up the stairs, take cover before
    you kill him so he won't shoot you with a shotgun. Kill the next 2 guys up here
    and grab the body armor. By now the time should be 0:50 or more. Go outside, go
    to the dragunov and take out the 2 guys below you. Take out the dragunov and
    shoot out the box thing. Now through the rest of the level, just run like crazy
    to the end and make sure you know the positions of the guys so you won't be
    ambushed. Once you get through the door, the platinum objective is complete.
    Battle in the Big Easy
    Difficulty: ***
    Platinum Objective: Get to Diavolo's compound from Bond's hideout in 0:55
    Getting the platinum is easy, but getting there, and completing the mission is
    the hard part.
    To get platinum, just don't spend too much time fighting the enemies and use
    your acid slick to kill them from behind. Binge most of the way there.
    Faded Splendor
    Difficulty: ****
    Platinum Objective: Take 100 damage or less
    Quite an annoying level. I don't like to use very much stealth on this level, so
    this walkthrough isn't going to have much on stealth.
    At the very start send a spider over to blow up the 2 guards talking. Take cover
    on the wall while you shoot the guy that flips forward. After taking him out,
    take out the sniper (you won't get very long to lock on him so move the red dot
    to his head very quickly). Now rappel up where the sniper used to be. Take wall
    cover and shoot the guy that runs down the hall. Go to the left and take wall
    cover just before the stairs to shoot out 2 people. As you go down, there will
    be a guy rolling into the room you're in. If you're quick enough you can stealth
    disable him. I'm still trying to figure out why you can do that. Now go shoot
    down the chandelier giving you a bond moment. Now which switch should you do
    first? The one with the body armor. Why? because you can take out the snipers
    out on the left one while taking cover. Anyways just take cover the whole time
    and make sure nobody goes behind the crate, because they will throw a grenade at
    you. Once you kill (I think) 3 people, you can move onto the next switch. Right
    when you hit the second switch, take wall cover and look to the right and take
    out the snipers by moving the red dot towards their face while aiming. After you
    take out the 2 snipers, look to the left, just in case someone is coming. Take
    out the guys hiding behind the tables and every once in a while look to the
    left. If you don't see anyone else then go ahead and go upstairs but constantly
    push L1 just incase someone is still there. Once you are up where the snipers
    are, hide behind the crate and watch out for the person at the left. He is very
    hard to kill because of his position. After you kill those 3 people, head into
    the next room and quickly go to the right hiding behind the crates on the other
    side (you're facing your back against the secret vault). 2 guys should come
    after you. Once they are killed, send a spider ahead down into very end of this
    level, and leave it there for later. The door will be open and there will be no
    guards. Now open the vault and get the stuff (even though you probably won't be
    needing it). Now head back out and stay near the wall where the sniper is while
    facing the stairs. 2 guards should come after you, but if not, then take them
    out after you take out the sniper, which you will be doing right now. Don't go
    down the second half of the stairs. Rappel up and go to the left and take cover
    if you want. Take out the 2 guards there and rappel down into the last room.
    Duck behind the computers and activate that spider you put ahead of you and blow
    it up to destroy a few guards. Now throw a grenade or 2 to take out the last
    guys. Mission complete.
    The Machinery of Evil
    Difficulty: ****
    Platinum Objective: Fire 10 rounds or less
    Yes this is very hard to do and it took me forever to do it. After I finally did
    it, someone else found a really good way to beat it, but I can't remember who
    that person is. It would've been rated 5 stars if it weren't for that person. I
    tweaked the strategy a little bit though.
    At the very beginning grab the shotgun, equip, and go out. Now run straight to
    the near right chamber and shoot the little electrical circuit thing. Blow up
    the machine. As you are going out, shoot the guy with the shotgun to kill him.
    Head towards the far right machine and blow it up. As you are going out, equip a
    grenade (regular or strobe. whichever you want) and throw 2 of them (or a mix of
    the 2) while heading to the near left machine to blow it up. Now throw another
    grenade (if you want) while heading towards the last machine. Right after you
    mess with the panel, stand right outside of the door, until it blows up. Go back
    in and use your Q spiders to destroy the cores (the spiders don't get shocked by
    the electricity).
    The Pontchartrain Bridge
    Difficulty: ****
    Platinum Objective: Finish Mission in 3:10
    Very difficult maneuvering through the traffic, but nonetheless quite fun, but
    yet annoying because of its difficulty.
    At the very beginning go on the small bridge as a shortcut and you can jump the
    fence for a bond moment if you want to, but it doesn't matter. Once you pass the
    fence go whichever way you end up veering towards. Once you're on the road,
    ignore all of the enemies and try to avoid the traffic as much as you can. Try
    to be in fast mode as much as you can throughout the mission. Do NOT get the 3rd
    bond moment by jumping over the construction area. Once you've power slided
    under the tanker, start shooting a bunch of missiles at the 2 trucks. Also try
    to avoid the flame things that the trucks throw towards you, because if you hit
    them you lose lots of life. Once you catch up to jaws, you need to blow out both
    of his rear tires with the flame-thrower.
    A Simple Exchange
    Difficulty: ***
    Platinum Objective: Finish Mission in 0:40
    Short amount of time, short level, and some frustration in doing it. One big
    At the very beginning, shoot the first guy with a sleeper dart. Go right towards
    the guy with the keycard and shoot him. The time should be about 0:30. Turn off
    the lasers. As your running back, there'll be a guy at the left that will get
    tired and take a nap after being hit with a dart. As you're going to the stairs,
    shoot a guy there if there is one there, if not, just run up and ignore the guys
    at the right. Once you go up, go straight then left. If a guy pops up in front
    of you, then shoot him. Now complete the mission without running into anything
    or getting hit by a shotgun, or a fist.
    Red Line
    Difficulty: ***
    Platinum Objective: Finish Mission in 4:50
    This is a little hard and it might take a little while to complete.
    At the very beginning hold X while the countdown is going. Sorry no turbo boost
    here. Stay to the right of the cars while still trying to be as close to them as
    possible. Do not slow down. Once you can get the bond moment, do so. It should
    put you in 2nd place, but if it doesn't then restart. The guy in first place is
    a little hard to pass but you should be able to pass him in short time. From
    here on just cut corners, don't brake at all (instead just let go of the gas),
    make sure you never run into things, and make sure you always do the bond
    Difficulty: ***
    Platinum Requirement: Use no ammo
    Another one that doesn't use any ammo that's even harder. However Shigmiya64
    sent this guide to me and it actually makes it a whole lot easier to get
    At the start, immediately turn around and take out the unarmed guard behind you.
    (I usually hit Square, Triangle, and X all at the same time, that should take
    him out in some way) Next, make a beeline for the stairs. The two guys with the
    P99s shouldn't be there yet, so you won't have to worry. Once you're downstairs,
    run for the big hall leading to the patio and take a right.  A guy with a SPAS
    12 should be to your left, so be careful.  Run to the wall on the right side of
    the room from the entrance and take another right down a side hallway.  The door
    at the end of this hallway opens up to reveal a room with two armor powerups.
    (It also has an AT-420 and a crowbar, but neither of these are useful now.)
    Anyway, stand away from the door so it closes.  Enemies will come in looking for
    you in groups of one or two. You can very easily ambush every single enemy that
    comes in, since virtually every one of them will come into the room in
    "Searching" mode, which will give you just enough time to at least disarm them.
    Grab the armor powerups when you need them and don't be afraid to use the
    bottles that some of them drop and you'll easily get through the toughest part
    of the Platinum mission here.  Eventually, they'll stop coming.  If you think
    you've taken them all out, edge out into the hallway and use the door for
    cover.  If they're all gone, head for the racecar driver's room, take out a
    handful of guards, throw a bottle at the circuit box, KO the rocket launcher
    troop that shows up, and run straight for secret room with Serena
    The High Road
    Difficulty: **
    Platinum Requirement: Reach mine using rooftops in 1:20
    Way too easy. The only hard part is getting there. The only advice I have is to
    memorize the path, and that taking the right route once you get on top of the
    mine will cut some time down. Not that you'll really need it. It would've been
    rated 1 star if it was pretty easy to get there.
    Diavolo's Plan
    Difficulty: ****
    Platinum Requirement: Complete mission in 3:10
    It actually isn't too hard. Just play it smoothly.
    First, escape. Grab your stuff, equip sleeper darts, and shoot the guard that
    comes. If he doesn't give you the locker key, then that's okay because you can
    just blow up the lockers to get some stuff. After you the stuff, equip your
    favorite gun you have now and go to the right. Activate the elevator and shoot
    anybody nearby. Kill the guys from far by shooting the explosive barrels gaining
    the only bond moment you'll get. Keep going through the mission shooting through
    people. Ignore the rappelers once you rappel up the wall, and don't do any other
    bond moments. That's all the advice I can give you.
    Platinum War
    Difficulty: **
    Platinum Requirement: Neutralize bomb in 2:15
    Way too easy to get platinum, but not that easy beating the level.
    The ONLY advice I have is to not get the first bond moment as it slightly slows
    you down, however you'll still probably make it even if you do so. Need advice
    for beating the level? See another FAQ.
    Dangerous Descent
    Difficulty: **
    Platinum Requirement: Take 100 damage or less
    2 stars for one of the final missions!? Trust me. It IS easy. Mainly because for
    the fact that you have 8 spiders.
    First off, how to get gold. When you start, get the first 2 bond moments. Check
    the bond moment FAQ for those. Then for the rest of the level try to kill most
    of the people using spider darts. Simple ya?
    Well platinum is just as simple. Right when it starts, run to the very edge of
    the pit and align yourself with the furthest yellow arrow and jump. Rappel down
    as quick as you can the whole way. If done quickly enough and correctly, you
    will not get hurt at all. If you don't understand this, then look at the map in
    the ASCII map section. Once you're at the bottom, take cover behind the 2
    destructible crates with the plane to the left of you. Equip your sleeper darts,
    and wait. Once the doors open there will be a guy running for you at the left.
    Shoot him before he turns around. There will be another guard at the other door
    opposite from you and just wait until he loses patience. Once he is starting to
    dream, send out a spider bot through the left door and look for a destructible
    crate next to where a whole bunch of guys are taking cover. Detonate your spider
    right there to kill off all but the one guard that is unaware of what just
    happened. Send another spider to make him want to go to bed early. Do not move
    the spider. Go retrieve it, collect some weapons, and use the control panel near
    you. Now take cover on the wall while you shoot the rocketeer in the head with a
    weapon other than the sleeper darts and the SIG 552. Patiently wait right there
    as 2 guys will eventually come after you (not at the same time thankfully). Once
    that happens send a spider out to take out 2 more guards. There should be nobody
    left until you hit the other control panel, which you are going to be doing
    right now. Once you have done that, quickly take cover and shoot out the guy
    running after you. Run back outside while equipping the SIG 552 and quickly
    shoot out the 5 guys with rockets. If you did it quick enough you will not even
    take damage from the rocketeers. Shoot out the brakes and kill jaws. Finished.
    Red Underground
    Difficulty: ***
    Platinum Requirement: Fire 10 rounds or less
    It seems hard, but if you follow the walkthrough I give you, then it actually
    won't be that hard.
    When you first start, rappel up, then rappel straight down. Run down right down
    through the middle while equipping your nano suit. About half way through, there
    should be a guard running towards you (even though he isn't firing at you).
    Equip your nano suit and crouch. If you get hit a lot, it's okay because there's
    a body armor near. Stand up run 3 steps and crouch again. Doing this will get
    you to go as quick as you can while still being invisible. Ignore all enemies
    and your nano suit should wear off right when you start going down. You might
    get hit a couple times but that is still okay. Once you jump down, equip your
    sleeper darts, go straight, and shoot the guy in front of you in the corridor.
    Run through that corridor and after the 2nd set of crates there is a body armor
    behind it if you need it. Turn to the left, shoot the guy there, grab another
    body armor, and head for the elevator. While you're going up, run around in
    circles so you will dodge some shots. Head straight for the control area in the
    middle and shoot the guy (or spray him with platinum if you're going for gold).
    Kill the guy behind you (w/o shooting if you want an easy gold), and lower the
    bridge. Open the door as quick as you can, and while it's opening throw in a
    strobe grenade. If you're going for gold, then stealth disable both of them
    before you just run and complete the mission. You'll probably beat it in less
    than 2:00 and the target time is 6:00.
    Although 425000 points seems a lot for just killing about 10 people, you're just
    making up for quantity with quality. You'll get most of your points with having
    about 200% weapon efficiency (btw 200% weapon efficiency gives you 200000 points
    and if done on 00 agent, it's multiplied by 2 giving you 25000 left for the rest
    of your points to easily cover). I got about 700000 points doing it that way.
    The Final Card
    Difficulty: *****
    Platinum Requirement: Take 100 damage or less
    Very difficult to get both gold and platinum. However I would say gold is harder
    to get than platinum.
    325000 points doesn't seem that hard, but because this mission is so short, it
    is. Through the mission you're probably going to want to use pistols the whole
    time so you will have higher accuracy and efficiency. Start out by countering
    the guys' attacks so you can get power mode. Shoot out the guys around the area.
    There should be 3 on the other side, 2 at the left, about 2 at the right, and 1
    hiding under a crate at the far left. Take out the 1 behind the crate last.
    After that is done, tap the turret at the left (viewed from the back of the
    level) and shoot the other turret. Now there will be 3 guys that appear at the
    front of the level that will soon be eating rockets for lunch, as well as the 3
    guys at the bottom left. Quickly "attempt" to kill diavolo and katya by making
    them combust.
    Right now you will be attacked by plenty of guards and 5 of them will be put to
    sleep by the sleeper dart. Also using a control panel will cause reinforcements
    to arrive. The quicker you do the mission the more points you will get so using
    them right when you can might be smart. Once you're done with 3 of the control
    panels and you've killed everyone in the area, send a spider down the vent to
    dislodge the wrench, and another spider to give the 2 guards waiting behind the
    door a good night sleep. Hit the last control panel and send off a spider to do
    some of the dirty work. Once you're out of spiders or battery (or both), run out
    and take cover at the computers. Kill the people that come after you, and if you
    spot the nano guard, turn on thermovision and use and EMP grenade on him to get
    a bond moment. Once all the guys are gone, just simply go back where you came
    from and blow up the plane.
    For platinum just follow the same thing as gold except don't rush through the
    level, blow up 2 spiders to get the 3rd bond moment, and use the nano suit to
    get to escape right when you hit the 4th control panel. Just one more platinum
    Everything or Nothing
    Difficulty: ****
    Platinum Requirement: Finish Mission in 5:00
    The very final mission, with about 100 guys this is difficult however there are
    some good tips on beating it.
    If you need to get gold then first get the second bond moment on Dangerous
    Descent (look at the bond moment FAQ if you need help finding it) so you can
    open the vault. When you first start out, just shoot out the first 4 guys. Then
    take a spider bot and change to sleeper dart and take out the person behind the
    crates at the left. If he isn't there, then have your spider wait while you run
    up towards the area, then go back to your spider and put him to sleep. Take your
    spider to the vault area to open the door. Now take another spider and send it
    through the door to take out all the guys there. If you haven't noticed already,
    putting someone to sleep rather than shooting them gives you 4x more points.
    Anyways by now you should be low on battery. But that's okay because you get 6
    batteries in the vault (as well as a whole bunch of other goodies). Through the
    rest of the mission you're going to want to take out as many people as you can
    without really killing them. One more thing, do not send a spider down from the
    place where you meet the first sniper. Rather send him down on the floor below.
    It isn't too hard to do and don't worry about time, you'll get 450000 points
    easy. Btw you're going to need to do this on 00 Agent, but then again why did I
    just bother mentioning that?
    Anyways for Platinum:
    As you start, take out all the guys in front of you with the SIG 552 as quick as
    you can. Once you go through the door, take out anyone directly in front of you.
    Then take out the guy on the right about to hide behind the crates. Then go
    ahead and take out another guy about to hide behind the crates (if you're quick
    enough, then they will die before they get a chance to duck). Now clear the area
    in this room so that there's no more guards.
    This was sent by Brandon_004:
    For platinum on the final mission: Everything or Nothing, it usually takes too
    long to get into the vault for all the extra supplies.  There is a quick way to
    enter the vault.  Once you are in the second room of the level (the room with
    the locked door leading to the vault) go to the upper platform (the one with the
    Dragunov and the window) and as soon as you are up the ramp either run fast or
    roll straight off the platform onto the two crates located next to the window of
    the vault entrance. (Takes a tiny bit of practice...just restart if you don't
    get it on first attempt) Now once you are standing on the crates unleash the Q
    spyder and drop it through the small window right behind the door that needs to
    be blown up.  This will unlock the door and often kill the guard in that room if
    you haven't done so already, thereby saving time.  Doing it this way adds only
    30 seconds to your mission time and is quicker than if you send the Q-spyder in
    the old-fashioned way.
    Hubert also sent a strategy like this at the same time so I'll give him props
    for finding that out too.
    This will cut down on a lot of time and make things much easier later. Make sure
    you grab the batteries (most important).
    Anyways once you exit the vault keep going until you get to the corner where it
    very dark up ahead. Turn on your thermovision and take cover and destroy the
    guard that pops up. Now exit cover and take out the sniper and 2 other guys and
    sometimes a guard will pop out of the hallway ahead. Just go right up to him and
    make his life much shorter, even if he does take cover. Now take cover behind
    the mechanical thing and get the rocket launcher out. Now make the guards' last
    thought in the room: "Spontaneous combustion DOES happen." Once they get blown
    to pieces, go to the next room and defeat the rocket guard. Grab the body armor
    on the left (even if you don't really need it).
    Now take cover up ahead and kill the next guard. Duck and turn on your nano
    suit. Go through the rest of the level consistently standing up and crouching so
    you go fast enough and so you don't lose the invisibility. Try to refrain from
    standing up near plenty of guards so they won't notice you and shoot you. Also
    if you do get hit, don't run. Just stay in a crouched position and keep going.
    Hopefully you will turn invisible again and you will stop being shot at. Once
    your nano suit stops working, run through the rest of the level nonstop. If you
    notice that the area where the 3rd bond moment is (see the bond moment faq if
    you want to know where it is), will be the last area you see guards (a lot of
    them too). Now just go through the level until you get to the red blast doors to
    go to the second part of the level to kill Diavolo. You don't have to worryabout
    killing him in time since the objective is already complete once you go
    through those doors.

    R = Rocket Launcher (plus bond moment)
    B = Body Armor
    X = Guard
    S = Starting position
    E = Ending Position
    O = I couldn't draw the map without going past the margins so I had to cut off
    some of it.
    About: This map is (obviously) not scaled correctly and there are guards that
    come depending on the route you take so don't think that there are only 9 guards
    in the whole catacombs.
    The path I recommend taking when getting platinum is the very far right. If you
    want the rocket launcher, then take the far left.
    Dangerous Descent Sweet Spot:

        |     B
    X = Sweet spot
    B = Start position
    O = I didn't want to draw the 2 big pits so I just shrunk it down
    [] = Crate
    Some people didn't understand what I meant by the sweet spot so I drew this mini
    map to show exactly what I meant. At the very start, run straight towards the X
    without stopping and rappel down without stopping. There should be a yellow
    arrow where the X is.
