0.0.3  General Strategy

Okay, these are basic tips for staying alive out there, but everyone's
playstyle
is different and these aren't the only ways to survive.

1. Stay in a Vehicle, even a junker has more armor than you do, hiding 
behind vehicles also works but be careful of them exploding.
2. Carry explosive A ALL TIMES, if you are stuck between a tank and a 
wall, c4 or and RPG can make either or both go away.
3. Kill the Gunner! Tis is huge, when taking down a tank or even a jeep, 
kill the soldier on the .50 cal. Those guns can eat through your health
like a pirahna to your cow.
4. Use your rescources, calling in an air strike or tank can turn a battle
from a hiding game to an owning game. Remember, what you dont have can be
stolen.
5. Be clever, make things near targets explode, shoot an un-uneeded fuel tank 
or airstrike to take out soldiers, vehicles, and buildings.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.1.1  Rescue Carmona

Summary:
     Here's the first mission, basically its the first half of the tutorial
pretty simple, follow Fiona's Dirctions to save the General, you're practically
led through this.

In-Depth:
     Alright, take that boat through the rocks, go slow if you need to. 
Land on the beach and get out. A helicopter will bring you a box, 
break it and grab the grenade launcher. Soldiers then run down the hill
at you. They have yellow targets on their heads, just blow them to bits
and follow the road. Alright, open your PDA when Fiona asks and then close it.
press up on the D-Pad and press a To select the Satellite bomb. Move the camera
over the gray box with a yellow target symbol and press A. Minigame time!!No
really just press A as the radar asks you and then run back to safety.
Now run trhough killing soldiers as you see them, blow up the gun turret and 
continue on to the huts.	
     Kill the three soldiers and wait for your jeep. Hop in and follow the dirt
road, no need to stop and engage the enemy just go fast and make it to the
waypoint. Hop out at the corcer and call in another bomb on this gate too. Now
a tank (woohoo!) will be airlifted to you, hop in and let loose. Follow the
road, using your main cannon or switch (right bumper) to you machine gun. 
The small village holds no threats, just plow downward through the buildings, 
stop at the river, shell the trucks and soldiers if you want, but don't destroy
the building. Get out of the tank and run up to Carmona to end the mission.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.1.2  Moving In

Summary: 
     Follow the road, get to the base, kill the special soldiers, take the tank
kill more soldiers.

In-Depth:
     Okay, you start in a junkyard, grap a vehicle from hear or the street. I 
prefer the Chopper (as in motorcycle) from the junkyard. Now hears a trick: 
Open your PDA and hit X when the objective triangle is highlighted and the game
will select the fastest route there via the road system. This can be ignored of
course because sometimes its not the BEST path to the objective. Now follow the
roads in any way to the villa, killing the soldiers as you go. drive in through
the entrance and maybe run down some poor soldiers. Now you should be told to
eliminate the special troops Solano left behind, they have white pants and 
jackets on, some have machine pistols and some have shotguns. Go around killing
them and collecting the money stockpiles near some.
      When they are all dead go the the front of the house where the door is
open, a tank will burst through the wall on your left. Hijack it, first killing
the gunner if he is there, then walk up to the cannon and press Y, when
prompted press B, and then mash A to take the grenade and the tank. now you
just have to kill the soldiers inside, this completes the mission.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.2.1  Universal Petroleum

Reward:0
And Bonus: .5K for each gun, one gun recquired to complete.

Summary:
     Grab the truck, and drive carefully to the destination. 

In-Depth:
     Finally work that pays! Grab Fiona's Car or run to the road for one 
(blowing up her racing Inferno will cost you 10k) and set up a PDA path to the
truck. Hear you can either grab the guns and run or clear the area. Clearing it
up is easy but the truck might be hit in the fight. Now set up a PDA path to
the UP Headquarters and drive. the machine guns shouldn't cause you too much
trouble but don't take too many hits. On the way into the city some trucks will
pull out in front of you trying to crash you, just brake slowly and go around.
     The black pickups with gunners are on your side, but be careful, they have
trouble dodging other cars. Drive through the city streets, its somewhat safer
here but you aren't clear until you pull into the ringof yellow representing
the drop zone. Hop out and collect your money.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.2.2  The Devestator

Reward: 25k
Bonus: 0k

Summary:
     Go get the Devestator, drive it to the drop zone. Simple.

In-Depth: 
     This mission is Insultingly easy, but its also insulting. Get it from the
talking security camera outside the gate. Then go they miniscule distance to
the 'satellite facility'a.k.a. the hot zone between VZ and UP. Here talk to the
marked UP soldier and the grab a ride in the big black tank known as- nah I'm 
kidding you its actually the small pink scooter behing the fence behind the 
tank. Drive it to the same drop zone you had last time and get out.Easy money,
sad way to earn it though.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.2.3  Phone Tag

Reward: 500k and 250FUEL
Bonus: 0k

Summary:
     Place the listening posts after killing the enemies, then rescue the
hostage from the designated armored car. Be fast and efficient.

In-Depth:
     Your first long mission, giving out half a million dollars and some fuel.
Lets start with the Northwest listening post position. Its off the road but not
too far. Its by he docks and if you hop on the crocodile gunboat just sitting 
there you can use the rockets (the gunner seat for the rockets is the door
under the stairs) you can open an exit and blow up the concrte building with 
windows that shoots rockets at you when the alarm is activated. Alternatively
hijack the tank thats there and do the same. Now use the support menu to call
down a listening post within the ring. 
     Next there is the Southwest post placement, its within a small VZ base,
but no major threats lurk within. Just kill the soldiers and try to keep them
away from the alarm tower in the back (its a small radio tower with a button
underneath, you can also blow it up). Call in the post and run away, or wait
for it to land if you didn't clear the entire area.
     Now the far away Northeast location, I grabbed a motorcycle, waited for my
disguise to activate, and snuck in the front door. Now drive up the ramps
inside the parking garage to the top, blow up the AA gun on the adjacent
parking garage with and rpg or grenades or shoot the gunner and his friend. Now
call for the final post and skedaddle. By this time the deadline should
activate and the time is ticking away. The kidnappers' van should show up on
the map, drive up to it and attempt to hijack it from the back, the button
sequence is X then A.
     Now drive the hostage to the UP HQ and hop out of the van. Now Ewan will
land his helicopter, get in a passenger seat and select the PMC from the map.
Congrats you just got a Copter Pilot.

Notes:Throughout the mission you have some free support courtesy of UP, use
these as you see fit.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

0.2.4  Altagracia Outpost

Reward: 300k, Up Tank Attack(shop), Raven(shop), c4 supply drop(shop), PMC fuel
storage upgrade (shop)
Bonus: 0k

Summary:
     Another first, the first Outpost mission. Get the job from the UP depot
west of the HQ drive to the VZ outpost, call in troops, ta-da!

In-Depth:
     Ok, so its a good idea to grab a raven from nearby and fill it with UP
troops. Drive it to the VZ base and hop out so the UP mercs will assist you in
the rampage. To capture the outpost merely call in the UP reinforcements from
your support menu (dont worry they're free) and let them enter the outpost
building. DO NOT DESTROY THE OUTPOST BUILDING! If you do its mission over.
VZ occasionally try to re-occupy the building but its shouldn't cause much
disruption.
     Capturing this outpost will allow you to access the shop, helipad, and
contact here. Every faction has outposts to capture, always from the VZ and
they are all based on the same formula. These outposts in turn offer some new
missions but never ones major to the story. Some do involve going against other
factions and making them angry. Therefore, I suggest doing all of the work for
one faction before moving to the next.

Notes: If you want to take rescources from here, do it before the UP own it so
you don't make them angry.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

0.2.5  Maracaibo Airport Outpost

Rewards: 300k, Mantis Light Tank(shop), Up Ground Attack(shop), PMC Fuel
Storage Upgrade(shop)
Bonus: 0k

Summary:
     This outpost is tougher to take down, it has two lines of defense and only
one true entrance. Otherwise its the same, some more fuel and airstrikes to
steal if you want (trust me you do).

In-Depth:
      Okay, you get this mission from Altagracia Outpost, so grab a raven from
there and more comrades. Now drive to the airport outpost, its in the eastern
hills outside Maracaibo. Fight your way inside the second wall, theres an alarm
station in the back and two RPG buildings that will activate if the alarm gets
turned on.
     The rescources here are happily placed next the the RPG bunkers just 
waiting for you to blow them up and send concrete flying. Or perhaps you 
actually want them, if so, call Ewan, but you shouldn't be able to reatin all
the fuel as of yet so let loose on that. When you finish call in he strike team
to take the place and extend UP's oil empire.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.2.6  Cabimas Outpost
Reward: 300k, UP Air Attack(shop), PMC Fuel Storage Upgrade(shop)
Bonus: 0k

Summary:
     Third and final UP outpost, possibly the hardest. Take outt AA and call in
strike team.

In-Depth:
     The last of UP's outpost capture missions is definently the hardest. Once
you get inside there is a fortified RPG building that takes two blocks of c4 
to demolish/ A second building with soldiers in it is near the back, but it is
weaker and has a nifty fuel tank waiting to be used. A tank goes around the 
outside of the base, but shouldn't cause trouble, in fact it makes everything
easier. Take out the AA gun in the back to make it safe for Ewan to collect
rescoures. When you've done what you want call in the strike team, but be sure
no VZ are left or they could sneakily kill the UP soldiers.

Notes: This being the last outpost you can either take the next mission I list
or do all of the outpost missions first.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.2.7  Leave No Trace

Rewards: 995k
Bonus: 0k

Summary:
     This mission is long, but no singular part is terribly difficlt, just
don't do anything stupid with the executive and it'll be all right. Find
him, take him to warehouse 1, then warehouse 2, then UP HQ

In-Depth:
     Okay, this is a story mission, so it pays big, nearly one million. Its 
a conglamoration of escorting, defending, and running like hell. First drive
to the Refinery near Cabimas Outpost and kill the VZ there. Talk to the exec.
inside and grab a vehicle. If you don't get to the next warehouse in time then
the VZ will start to destroy it and thats no good. Once you get there lead
the exec. into the ringand then go up the ramp behind the warehouse to the 
ship. Here you will find a recoilless rifle and a Heavy MG at the north end
and just a recoilless at the south. Enemies come from the north, blow them up
with the Rec. Rifle. Then run to the south end and do the same. Then BACK to
the north to defeat the last wave, soldiers will try to use the pipe next to
you so shoot it a few times with the Rec. Rifle to take that away from them.
Now run down and grab the exec., and a car, and get to warehouse 2. 
     Again ring of light, then ramp, this time to a tower. Up here are multiple
Grenade MGs, put them to good use. Enemies come down the north first, then
east AND west next. Next those clever Venezualans Come from everywhere, but
they should be no problem. You'll hear about a surprise on top of the tower
so climb up there to find an anti-air rocket launcher. Guess what? You need
it. Its easy to take down the VZ copters, just lock on and fire. When the exec.
is done playing pyromaniac pick him up, get in a car, and go to UP HQ.
     The drive back should be mostly unevenful, but still be careful, that
executive isn't nearly as tough as you, being NEAR an explosion can kill him.

Notes:This mission can be frustrating if th executive gets himself killed or
acts stupidly, but there are multiple checkpoints so don't Worry.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.2.8  Into The Green Zone (Levels 1,2, and 3)

Rewards: 300k
-Level 1: Light MG Drop (shop)
-Level 2: CQB Kit (shop)
-Level 3: Combat Rogue (shop)
Bonus: Varies for Level And Speed.

Summary:
     Missions from Maracaibo Airport Outpost. Pick up the executive at the
airport, take him to one of three UP basesand the faster the more money.
The higher the level, the more resistance, and the longer the driving distance.
(do not know about bonus or time, can someone confirm please?)

In-Depth:
     Level 1: this is easy, pick up the guy and take him to UP HQ, almost no
VZ in the way and none with explosives.
     Level 2: Not so eas, grab the guy, and take him to UP Depot, tanks start
appearing and there is a medium amount of VZ in the way.
     Level 3: Get a copter, really, just do it. You take them to Altagracia
Outpost and there are so many tanks in the way doing this with a car is insane
and takes alot of skill and speed. However, in the copter, careful for AA and 
RPGs.

Notes: Besides Level 3 these shouldn't prove too difficult. Great fun though.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.2.9  Built For Speed (Levels 1,2, and 3)

Reward: 300k
-Level 1: Archer Guntruck (shop)
-Level 2: Warhorse Patrol Boat (shop)
-Level 3: Rogue Assasin (shop)
Bonus: 0k

Summary:
     Drive The Volce Sports Car through the checkpoints (which add time)
and make it to the final destination in-tact

In-Depth:
     Level 1: Easy, if you can drive, be careful, use X for brakes to avoid
walls and Left Trigger for tight turns. The timer is forgiving
     Level 2: See above but be careful, you have to go faster and less 
mistakes are allowed.
     Level 3: See Above, but this time you must be near perfect, the timer is
not going to allow stalls or snags in your driving.

Notes: I found these easy and fun, the Veloce is a great car with impeccable
turning and speed. But its fragile and breaks like a twig.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.2.10  UP Standing Bounties

Rewards: 5k each
-3 Kills: Raven GL (x1)
-10 Kills: Archer Gntruck (x1)
-25 Kills: Rogue Assassin (x1)
-50 Kills: Raven GL (shop)
Bonus: 0k

Summary:
     You get 5k for each PLAV soldier you kill and unlockables or supplies at
increments until 50

In-Depth:
     This is easy and fun, you get paid for each PLAV soldier dead and unlock
stuff! You'll being killing enough of these guys doing UP HVT missions, so
don't worry about needing to hunt.

Notes: This marks PLAV as UP's rival faction, kill them to make UP happy.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.2.11  UP HVT

Rewards:
-1 HVT: Alive: 150k Dead: 75k Unlock: Mantis Light Tank
-2 HVT: Alive: 200k Dead: 100k
-3 HVT: Alive: 250k Dead: 125k Unlock: Anti-Tank Rogue (x1)
-4 HVT: Alive: 300k Dead: 150k
-5 HVT: Alive: 400k Dead: 200k Unlock: Tank Buster (shop)
-6 HVT: Alive: 500k Dead: 250k 
-7 HVT: Alive: 700k Dead: 350k
-8 HVT: Alive: 1m Dead: 500k Unlock: Combat Air Patrol (shop)
-9 HVT: Alive: 1.2m Dead: 600k
-10 HVT: Alive: 1.5m Dead:  Unlock: Combat Rogue (shop)
Bonus: 0k

Summary:
     Ten HVTs, or High Value Targets, floating around Venezuela for you to 
pick off one by one. To take them alive simply run up and melee them, then 
press Y to subdue. Then call in extraction from the desired faction (its 
automatically added to your support menu) and load the HVT (carry with Y). 
This is tricky sometimes because his own faction might shoot him in the 
crossfire or shoot down the helicopter. I like to hide the HVT in a corner and
clear the area before calling a copter. Take all 55 HVTs in the game alive and
you get a different ending.

In-Depth:
     Okay, theres ten, but some are VZ and some are PLAV, dont worry though,
just kill anyone but the HVT, this helps with the UP Standing Bounties. Some
HVTs are out of the way, or off the current map, its best to do just the first
PLAV missionn to unlock more map. These are the easiest HVTs in the game and 
are a good introduction. Kill them if you want, but its worth it to keep them
alive.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.2.12  UP Targets

Reward: 100k Each
-1 Target: Grenade Launcher Drop (x2)
-3 Targets: Warhorse Patrol Boat (x1)
-5 Targets: Rogue Transport (shop)
-8 Targets: Grenade Launcher Drop (shop)
-13 Targets: Luxury Car (shop)
Bonus: 0k

Summary:
     These are just plain fun, find the building it blow it up. If you went 
ahead and got the mechanic and jet pilot you may use airstrikes, c4 (and lots
of it) will also work, maybe some RPGs to. Blow them up, get paid.

In-Depth:
     These are all VZ, these are also scattered randomly.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.3.1  Intoduction to the People's Liberation Army of Venezuala

Rewards: 0k, PLAV Supply Drop (shop), Corales Scout (shop)
Bonus: 0k

Summary:
     Welcome to the game's rebel faction! Just select this topic from Fiona at
the PMC and the faction is added to your list.

In-Depth:
     This unlocks the PLAV area of the map and the mission Orinoco River
outpost. Get the mission from the Southeastern Amazon Outpost.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.3.2  Orinoco River Outpost

Rewards: 300k, Martinez APC (shop), Supply Weapons Drop (shop), Artillery
Strike (shop), PMC Fuel Storage Upgrade (shop)
Bonus: 0k

Summary:
     Simple Outpost Mission, nothing special here.

In-Depth:
     The base you're invading has one RPG building, an alarm tower, a few 
rescources, and snipers. Take out the sniper on the water tower and climg up
to take his weapon and finish off the others, or just blow everything up.

Bonus Strategy: 
     Call in the PLAV when the base is clear and kill them for money, no one
will be able to report you, so they stay friendly and you get rewards.

Notes: This unlocks the Artillery Strike, a cheap and effective airstrike that
yiu don't need a jet pilot fr. Low fuel cost and perfect anti building fare.
For more fun, attach the beacon to your hopefully speedy vehicle and quickly
drive up to your target, useful for quick, immediate destruction, but be
careful you don't start from too far away.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.3.3  Eastern Merida Outpost

Rewards: 300k, Cavalera Light Tank (shop), Chinese Sniper Kit (ahop), PMC Fuel
Storage Upgradde (shop)
Bonus: 0k

Summary:
     Another Day, Another Outpost Mission, get it from Orinoco R. Outpost.

In-Depth:
     Starting to tire of these outpost missions? Yeah well this one has a
twist, its incredibly easy. Break through the wall outside with an explosive
then kill the limited VZ standing around and call in the commandos. Simple 
right? Oh but watch the tank.

Notes: Unlocks the Cavalera Light Tank, which is good, fast (for a tank)
and cheap. I Like to buy about three at a time and use them for any mission,
one of the best Gorilla shop items.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.3.4  Southwestern Amazon Outpost

Rewards: 300k, Castro-V Attack Chopper (shop) PMC Fuel Stroage Upgrade (shop)
Bonus: 0k

Summary:
     Simple outpost, great reward. Watch the RPG building though, it can sneak
up on you and ruin your plans.

In-Depth:
     Last oupost for the PLAV, very simple but be careful of both the RPG
building and the one you are supposed to capture. Its easy to accidentally blow
up, and then you have to restart the mission.

Notes: Castro-V Attack Chopper, it has door guns, so grab allies that will use
them! This is the best helicopter in the game as of yet, so put them to good
use in the following missions.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.3.5  Corporate Headhunting

Rewards: 300k, Castro Attack Copter (shop)
Bonus: 0k

Summary:
     Assassinate Four non-HVT targets, all UP executives.

In-Depth:
     Our first actual mission against another faction has us killing off Oil
Executives. Simple if you don't mind the UP Hating you. Two targets are just
north of the Orinoco River Outpost, its easiest to use a copter to kill them
and then get away fast. Another is near the UP Depot up in Maracaibo, and the
last target is near the Maracaibo Airport. If you have the copter still this 
should be easy, otherwise hijack the tank at the depot and the get a motorcycle
to get to the airport fast, and then out fast. The airport can be incredibly 
difficult to get out of on foot, so speed is of the essence. (whatever that 
means)

Notes: If you went and got the mechanic already thats great, it will make this
mission easier to do on foot if you have the grappling hook.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
0.3.6  Paint the Town

Rewards: 750k
Bonus: 500k for no civillians killed

Summary:
     Go to town, and then blow up some of it. Three buildings marked with
yellow targets, take these out and defend the church until Mendez is located,
kill or capture Mendez, done.

In-Depth:
     Get this mission from PLAV HQ, then get to Merida. Three buildings are
marked with yellow, not gray (those are facion targets), yellow. Blow these
up. Now you must guard the church Fiona mentioned earlier. This is tricky, and
you can go about it plenty of ways. I list three.
     1: Simply grab an RPG and use this and your c4 to deal with tanks,
grenades and a firearm for the trucks and jeeps, not to mention any infantry
they carry. This method is easiest with Chris Jacobs because you can take down
more before finding an ammo drop. The others can handle it, but its more
frenzied.
     2: Hijack tanks like crazy, kill the gunners (I find a close range sniper
bullet or shotgun blast is best) and then hijack. You can either immediatly hop
out and go for another moving steel shoot-em-blow-em-up-contraption or use the
one you now have to kill them the good ol' fashiponed way. Careful not to
develop a disguise or the PLAV will shoot you.
     3: Use the artillery GUN (not strike, gun) at the east end of the church
to kill tanks, untiil you have to defend the other side, run out of ammo, or
get blown to bits. After which switch  to the first or second strategy.
     After this,

0.9.4  Grenade Launcher Challenge (Levels 1,2 and 3)

Reward: Varies
-Level 1: NA
-Level 2: Fiona's Favorites (x2)
-Level 3: Costume (if you have not beat three other Level Three Fiona
Challenges)
Bonus: 0k (but look at the brightside, you didn't lose)

Summary:
     Blow up the statues, and in one stage cars. Grenade launcher has six shots
so reload between stages.

In-Depth:
     Stage one has three statues, simply aim and fire, maybe practice your aim
at level 1 before advancing. Stage two has three cars, peg the barrel in the
center and make sure it catches fire, it'll explode in a few seconds and take
out the cars. Next there are three statues oon a roof, easy shots because of
extra surfaces to hit and rebound splash damage. Fourth stage is lots of
statues on pillars, just aim at the middle of bunches, might take a reload,
but not more than one. Last stage is statues hidden behind metal barriers,
aim next to them and put a grenade on the ground, last bit and easy with good
aim.

Notes: My only advice for advanced levels is: go faster.

1.3.1  Mercenary: Jennifer Mui

     This is the merc I beat the game with, she rruns extra fast, I used her
     because the other two starter mercs have bonuses that allow for completely
     different play styles. Jen just allows faster completion and more close up
     work. Good escape artist.
