Q: Whatís in this guide?
A: A complete walkthrough for the 15 ďGhost ReconĒ Campaign levels for the
Playstation 2 console. After playing Ghost Recon on other systems, I realized
there actually are a number of differences in the missions. The walkthrough is
for Rookie skill mode, as I felt this the easiest way for readers to learn the
levels without spoiling the game. In Veteran and Elite modes, half the fun is
finding things out for yourself.

Q: Whatís not in this guide?
A: Instructions on controls, options, settings etc. All of that is included in
the instruction manual which came with your game. As well, I highly recommend
new players complete both the Training Mode and play all five Tactical Missions
before starting a new Campaign.

PLEASE NOTE: Throughout this guide, I refer to four cardinal directions (north,
south, east, west) and four secondary directions (northeast, northwest,
southeast, southwest) with the symbols N, S, E, W, NE, NW, SE and SW. These
directions are always used in conjunction with the in-game tactical map (press
L1 button). North is always at the top of the screen.

Mission GR-01 Iron Dragon
Objective 1 Neutralize Tent Camp Troops
Objective 2 Secure the Caves
Objective 3 return to Insertion Zone
x Capture Papashvili
Start in the SE corner of the map. Proceed immediately W, which brings you
close to two patrols of two enemy guards. One group is usually slightly N, one
slight W. Continue W, and about halfway to the W edge of the map youíll find a
large rocky cliff jutting S, with a sandy ramp leading N to the second plateau
nearby. Two enemy guards are standing on the sandy ramp. Leave one fireteam
hunkering down here. Proceed to the far E edge of the map, staying on the
southernmost plateau. Look for guards patrolling near the E edge. At this edge
there will be another sandy ramp leading N to the next plateau.
Proceed N up the ramp, and soon youíll spot a cabin. usually one to two guards
nearby. N of the cabin will be another sandy ramp leading N, to the third
plateau. Proceed up this ramp up to the third plateau. Immediately turn E, and
you should be close to the cave complex. Proceed E toward the caves, watching
for one guard outside the cave entrance, and another stranding nearby.
Enter the cave complex, looking for three enemy guards. Papashvili will be at
the back of the caves, standing near a chalk board. Youíll know him because he
wears a ball cap and he doesnít carry a gun. Approach him closely, and heíll
follow you.
Leave caves, heading E. As you near a series of jagged rocks and cliffs,
several guards will be near. One lone guard S, group of two to three E. Switch
to other fireteam at the first sandy ramp. Take this team, head N up the ramp
and youíll immediately find a patrol of two to three guards. Swing east,
keeping along the cliff edge facing S. Approach the tent camp from the S,
watching for three to four guards patrolling the W edge of the camp. Eliminate
three to four guards in the camp.

sniper will pick them off through windows and doors without entering the barn.
Watch out for the pilot strapped to the chair, though.
Proceed toward the farmhouse, near the center of the map. Two to three guards
will be patrolling outside the farmhouse, which holds the W. Officer. Two to

come from this direction, but they may appear right away, or three or four
minutes later.
While on the bridge, look down the highway, away from the NATO HQ. You will see
two enemy tanks moving down the highway towards you. Destroy them, and kill all

Leave one team hidden at edge of buildings on south side of road. In about 10
minutes, a heavily armed enemy patrol will come onto the map along the road on
the W edge of the map. By leaving the team nearby, your team will kill the
enemies before they can ambush you.
Take your other team and proceed carefully through the hilly woods on the N

Two enemy snipers will be easily visible in windows in the bank front. After
killing them, take on E street carefully in front of bank glass doors, keeping
your back to the building S of the bank. Look inside the glass doors and kill
two to three enemy guards inside the bank. One more enemy guard will probably
come out from his hiding spot at the back of the bank. If the enemy guards
remain hidden, enter the bank through its back door, located on the N side of

above and laying on the second floor.

the street. On the N side of the street you will see an underground parking
lot. Enter carefully, and inside will be two enemy guards on patrol. Clear them
out, then proceed through the parking lot, up the ramp on the N side and then
turn immediately E. Head down the street approaching the embassy. While looking
through the embassy S entrance, you should be able to snipe an enemy guard
standing at the embassy W entrance.
Head NE of the embassy, towards a destroyed overpass which has a Jeep Grand
Cherokee hanging precariously. Use the nearby staircase heading N, and follow
the street all the way down to an intersection. Enter the building on your left
hand side, which should have a black metal fence around it. Inside the building
on the second floor is an enemy snipe. After killing the snipe, another enemy
will magically appear behind you. Be ready for him. Take this team all the way
back to the embassy, and leave them on the helicopter landing pad on the roof.
Take your other team from outside the alley near the embassy, and head N down
the main drag. At the first intersection, turn W and look for two alleys on the
N side of the street. Take either one, and youíll soon emerge near the crash
site. Look for three to four enemy guards near the crash site. To investigate
the crash, simply walk near it. Be careful, because after you investigate the
crash, an enemy tank appears to the S and enemy infantry appears to the N. Make
your way back to the American embassy.

look to your right-hand, up to the top of the rocks. An enemy sniper should be

Mission GR-15 White Razor

Objective 1 Relieve pinned down troops
Objective 2 Take Nikolskaya Tower
Objective 3 Take Spasskaya Tower
Objective 4 Avoid civilian casualties
On this level, be wary of shooting Russian civilians running around. I know, I
know; if you run in front of a guy shooting an assault rifle, youíre asking for
trouble. But if you kill a civilian, you have to start over.
Start in the NW corner of the map. You must take one team and quickly run
towards the E edge of the map, as your pinned down NATO troops are being shot
at by elite Russian forces. The NATO guys wonít last long, so quickly proceed
south one block, east one block, then emerge S into the large park area with
many large trees, parked cars and a few enemy guards patrolling. Find the large
East-West avenue, and run E. At the end of the street, on the N side, are your
NATO troops trapped in ruins, and about four enemy troops shooting at them.
Kill the enemy soldiers.
Bring both your teams to this spot, as this is the entry into the Russian
government building. Two Russian guards are patrolling immediately inside.
After killing them, proceed into the building, looking for a staircase nearby
leading up. Climb the stairs and proceed with caution, as there are two more
guards patrolling somewhere along these lengthy walkways. You goal is at the
far W side of the building.
There, you will find a huge hole in the wall leading into Red Square. You will
also find an enemy tank on patrol,. so destroy it and get ready for three to
four infantry who are looking for you.
As you enter the square, you must eliminate enemy patrols walking this area,
machine-gun nests full of Russian soldiers and three more enemy tanks.
Visibility is not great, so proceed carefully and donít let any enemy soldier
get behind you.
