This was written on Normal difficulty. Since this game is pretty open I just
point what the mission objectives want you to do.


[1 - Call me Ishmael]

Dual weild SMG's on the table here too. Check the third trailer for weapons and

it. Pick up the weapons inside the house here and you're done. Head back to the
main road to the next objective.

+ Secure the beach resort

Lots of KPA's to fight here. First we need to destroy the APC tank on the road.

off the KPA with your sniper rifle and grab a vehicle afterwards to the harbor.

Grab the sniper rifle near the car if you don't have it already and pick off the
guys on the boat. Make your way down to the checkpoint and pick off enemies with
the rifle and grenades on the turret. Grab the missle launcher and chaingun
laying around before heading up the boat. To get on the boat use strength to
jump onto the icy rocks. Head inside where the jet is.

Go in and face some enemies, grab any guns and make your way to the right corner
. Head down the long corridor and down the hole. Clear the enemies and go to the
vending machines are at. Look up and strength jump up. Ammo/weapons located

don't have to. Stock up again and enter the mine.

[5 - Below the Thunder]

+ Exit the cave

Make your way thru the cave. Nothing hard here.

+ Find the freight tunnel

Head upward to fight a few soldiers here. Use grenades to get the guy behind
the turret to leave it. Finish them off and go left and jump the rocks up. Go
pass the mining equipment and jump down the hole. Kill the enemies in the corner
to the right and head that way to find ammo. Go back and go straight to a game
save. Fight more enemies here and head straight.

A truck will chase you here. Use a grenade and time it to kill it in one hit.
More soldiers will pop put. Use the sniper rifle and pick them off. Same thing
in the next room. Head upstairs to find the elevator.

Head towards the container afterwards.

+ Contact the VTOL

Get into any vehicle and ride to the checkpoint. Clear out any foes and head to
the tower and climb up the long ladder. Use the radio in the corner to contact

+ Defend the container - Get the experimental weapon - Destroy exosuit

First we need to get to the weapon. Run to the crashed plane and look inside.
It is inside a container. It has unlimited ammo but is slow to charge. Head N
to destroy the exosuit. This thing is tough. You need about 15-20 good shots
(im guessing, didn't actually count them) to take it down. It will flash when it
is hit. To avoid the homing rockets use the red/white storage container to hide
inside. It's located near the exosuit. Afterwards head back to the container to
finish the game. Congrats!

These are tips for the harder difficulties.

- Use Binoculars: Binoculars can highight all nearby enemies on the map. Easier
                  to kill them when you know where they are.

- Vehicles: Take out the tires to make them stop chasing you. Then grenade them!

- Meatshields: Grab a enemy and use them as a shield! They absorb all the

- Hit and Run: Since enemies have a uncanny aim in the harder difficulties its
               best to use Speed or Stealth and a good close up weapon like
               shotgun to pick them off one by one, then run away.

- Stealth heal: Use stealth to refill your health.

- Steady aim: Use prone for steadier sniping.
