UPDATES ++++++++++ =================================== 6/28/99 Today I started my second real FAQ, the first one was my Final Fantasy VIII Demo Walkthrough that comes with with Brave Fencer, you can get that walkthrough at my web site: www.angelfire.com/tx2/xenoffvii . Well today I got the Character Profile section, the move list, and I got part of the first level of the walkthrough done. 7/02/99 Today I added more to the walkthrough part, but still only on the first level ^_^. You people may be wondering...why did it take so long for such a short update?...Well, little do you know that I am currently working on Walkthrough/FAQ's for: Metal Gear Solid, Syphon Filter, Ehrgeiz, and Tenchu. 8/03/99 Today I finished the first level for the walkthrough and started the second level. I also added a review to the game. 8/04/99 Well today is my birthday! :) But that's no reason to not to a update, so I'm just gona update the walkthrough again. I added a new logo title at the top, I didn't like the other one, plus somebody else has one similar to it, and I don't like copying. 9/15/99 It's been a while since I had last updated this walkthrough, so I figured that I should do some more updating on it. I finished the second level strategy and the third level strategy, and started the fourth level walkthrough... <LATER THAT DAY> Oh my God..I finished the walkthrough all the way to level 6! That's like 5 1/2 levels in one day! If I keep this up, this walkthrough should be done in a few more days! 9/30/99 Ok, it has been more than a month since I last updated this walkthrough, and I know i said that I would have it done in a few days, but I let my friend borrow the game, stupid me huh. Well I got the game back, so I'm gona do an update on the walkthrough :) . Just a little note: - I'm gona be gone tomorrow and for the next few days =( but when I get home, I'm gona try to finish the walkthrough! 10/16/99 Hey, I am doing another update today, I hope that I get at least a few levels done today. 10/29/99 Hello, I changed some of the FAQ today, and took out some stuff. 11/13/99 A bit of change on the over all look on the FAQ, and a update on the walkthrough section. 12/17/99 Ok, it's been a long time since I had last updated this walkthrough, mainly because I have been busy and don't have any time to write walkthroughs. 01/06/00 Well its been a while since my last update and it may be even longer until my next update, but I'm going to try to finish it soon due to many many emails with questions and concerns about the game and the walkthrough. I didn't add much today but tomorrow I hope to get lots updated and maybe I'll just finish level 6 and 7 (hopefully!). 01/12/00 Not much today, just another update... 01/14/00 I went and corrected most if not all of my spelling, also I added a little to everything. =================================== ++++++++++ II. REVIEW ++++++++++ =================================== This is what I have to say about this game: It's one for the best damn games that I have ever played! It has pretty good graphics, and the best AI system around. Not only that, but it's super fun, I play it all the time and that's one of the main reasons that I'm writing this walkthrough/FAQ. I brought this game over to one of my friends, house along with my Playstation because he has a N64, one look at this game and he quickly stated: "Man I'm gona get a PSX just for this game!". This game is just way cool and awesome! But if you haven't played the game yet and you're wondering, what kind of game is Syphon Filter, and what makes it so fun? Well I got the answer for you, it's a kick ass game and running around burning bad guys to death with Tazerz, Blowing them up with bombs, Sniping on them where it hurts, and then the mass destruction of destroying cars and then watching them fly sky high from the explosion. You may be thinking that Syphon Filter is like Metal Gear Solid because that what it looks like, but it is the total opposite. Instead sneaking in to the enemy base trying to save to world with out people even knowing that you are there, Syphon Filter is run em' up and shoot them type of games that takes place in more than one enemy base, plus its a lot more fun! Ok to make things short I'm just gona do what they do in those magazines, you know like rank it. 1= Worst 10= Best Graphics 8/10 AI 10/10 Sound 8/10 Fun 10/10 Control 9/10 Replay Value 10/10 Innovation 8/10 Presentation 9/10 _ FINAL SCORE= ,':: ::::::: , :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :: :::::: ::::: FINAL WORD: What can I say, this game is great and a one of a kind! ================================================ ++++++++ III.

WEAPONS AND ITEMS LIST ++++++++++ =================================================== There are few types of weapons in the game. They are : guns, shotguns, machine guns, rifles, grenades, and misc. Fire rate score ranges from 1 to 5, 1 is the slowest and 5 is the fastest. Damage score ranges from 1 to 5, 1 is the weakest and 5 is the strongest. +++ GUNS +++ 1. Silenced 9mm Handgun Stats : Fire Rate 3 Damage 2 Clip Size 15 Max Rounds 90 The 9mm handgun is the standard issue side-arm for NATO and all five branches of the U.S. Armed Forces since passing the 1979 MRBF (Mean Rounds Before operational Failure) performance test where it expended 35,000 rounds, six times the gun's service life. NOTE : this is one of your first primary weapons. Not suitable when fighting multiple enemies because it's not so powerful. The advantage of this weapon is that this weapon is equipped with silencer, so you can use this weapon in the stealth missions. The aim function of this gun is quite useful, although you cannot zoom in or out. 2. .45 Handgun Stats : Fire Rate 2 Damage 3 Clip Size 10 Max Rounds 60 This tough, durable gun has been in production for almost a century. It has tremendous stopping power, and in spite of its strong recoil and heavy slide and bolt, it is a deadly weapon in the hands of a seasoned professional. NOTE : This weapon is quite good, despite its fire rate. You can kill with just one body-shot if you do it right. +++ SHOTGUNS +++ 1. Shotgun Stats : Fire Rate 2 Damage 4 Clip Size N/A Max Rounds 25 The 12-gauge modified choke shotgun is standard issue for the DEA, FBI and USSS. In firing tests using tactical 00 shot with nine lead on an ISCP regulation target at 25 yards, the payload was delivered into the "A" kill zone with limited collateral damage. NOTE : Shotgun is really strong. Shoot them and you can see the enemy taking a heavy impact to the back. The problem is the reload time - it's very slow. You have to reload every time you shoot. Suitable for close range and quick killing. Not suitable for multiple enemies with flak jackets. 2. Combat Shotgun Stats : Fire Rate 2 Damage 4 Clip Size N/A Max Rounds 30 The overly heavy recoil of this 12-gauge shotgun is more than compensated or by its unparalleled stopping power and its recoil-inertia operation which is significantly faster than the gas-operated system found in most auto loading shotguns. NOTE : This is a better version of shotgun. It's more powerful, and a little bit faster, even though the stats look similar. +++ MACHINE GUNS +++ 1. HK-5 Pistol-Machine Gun Stats : Fire Rate 4 Damage 3 Clip Size 32 Max Rounds 192 The HK-5's modular design and small size make it very popular with both military special forces and terrorists. With more than 23 officially recognized variants, it is fast becoming the most widely used pistol-machine gun in the world. NOTE : Quite useful for dealing with multiple enemies. Running around and shooting is the best way to use this. 2. G-18 Pistol-Machine Gun Stats : Fire Rate 5 Damage 2 Clip Size 33 Max Rounds 198 With a rate of fire topping 60 rounds per second, the G-18 is perhaps the most deadly pistol-machine gun in the world. Its only weakness is its tendency to expend ammunition faster than most shooters are prepared for, leaving them defenseless during a reload. NOTE : Quite good, but the ammo runs out quickly. So I don't use it a lot. 3. BIZ-2 Pistol-Machine Gun Stats : Fire Rate 4 Damage 3 Clip Size 66 Max Rounds 396 This pistol-machine gun is designed to deliver sustained firepower in tight quarters. The unconventional design of its large-capacity magazine keeps the weapon compact but still provides a near bottomless source of ammunition. NOTE : Wow... this is an excellent weapon, but you can only find it on later stages (15+). The fire rate is fast, and the damage is really good. +++ ASSAULT RIFLES +++ 1. M-16 Assault Rifle Stats : Fire Rate 4 Damage 2 Clip Size 30 Max Rounds 180 This low-recoil weapon is lightweight and accurate. Developed by the U.S. Army in 1965, this assault rifle has since become a mainstay for armed forces, police and personal defense enthusiasts. NOTE : you will find this weapon in earlier level. Don't like it and rarely use it. 2. K3G4 Assault Rifle Stats : Fire Rate 4 Damage 2 Clip Size 20 Max Rounds 120 The deadly K3G4 is commonly armed with Teflon coated bullets capable of cutting through most standard-issue flak jackets like a hot knife through butter. NOTE : This is one of the best weapons in the game !! These bullets can go through the flak jacket. So you can kill the enemies as if they're not wearing any flak jacket. Furthermore, you can pick up the enemy's flak jacket when they're dead. 3. PK-102 Assault Rifle Stats : Fire Rate 4 Damage 2 Clip Size 30 Max Rounds 180 A variant of the popular Vokinhsilak system (one of the most widely used and modified designs in the world), the PK-102 is a compact, lightweight full assault rifle that is easy to conceal, making it a popular choice for terrorists. NOTE : you will get this weapon a lot in a few mission. In fact, all of the enemy in mission 8 use this, so you won't be afraid of the bullets. I rarely use this, but I find it very useful to face the chopper. +++ SNIPER RIFLES +++ 1. Sniper Rifle Stats : Fire Rate 2 Damage 2 Clip Size 10 Max Rounds 30 This high-caliber, silenced rifle comes equipped with a classified digital scope with basic optical character recognition, making it a highly accurate weapon capable of identifying and classifying human targets and impact points prior to firing. NOTE : As head-shot becomes my style in playing this game, sniper rifle is one of my most favorite weapons. The binoculars can zoom in to make an accurate head-shot. Good for sneaking mission. 2. Nightvision Rifle Stats : Fire Rate 2 Damage 2 Clip Size 10 Max Rounds 30 Often used by Russian Army snipers, this Russian rifle is capable of extreme accuracy. It excels in engaging fleeting, moving, open and masked single targets. This model comes standard equipped with an SVDN2 night sight and silencer. NOTE : This weapon is similar to the sniper rifle, but it has night vision bunocular on it. So you can see the enemies easily in the dark environment. Use it to shoot the terrorists, but it's not suitable for shooting lamps and other stuff, because you can hardly see the 'non-living' things in this binocular. I can't say which gun is better (NVR or Sniper Rifle) because they have their own advantages and I use them both. +++ GRENADES +++ 1. Grenade Stats : Fire Rate 1 Damage 5 Clip Size N/A Max Rounds 10 Upon detonation, this incendiary weapon spreads ammonium perchlorate three meters outward from the blast point. It is instantly ignited by the explosion and quickly burns out, fatally burning anyone nearby but leaving little collateral damage. NOTE : Even though this weapon is an instant killing weapon, grenades are not good to use. Activating the grenade takes a long time, and it takes time for the grenade to explode. The enemy uses this time to spread out, thus the grenade can't hurt them. 2. Gas Grenade Stats : Fire Rate 1 Damage 5 Clip Size N/A Max Rounds 10 Primarily used as a stealth weapon against multiple targets, this grenade releases trace amounts of Soman nerve agent into the air. The gas quickly dissipates, but not before rendering victims unconscious. If no antidote is administered, death follows within 15 minutes. NOTE : This is one of the most useful weapons (and one of my favorite, too). With this grenade, you can kill enemies in group. As you know if you head-shot someone in a group, his friend will notice you and try to kill you. Imagine that happens on stealth mission. The good part is : this is a stealth weapon. The lowdown is that you cannot use this on confront mission because it's so slow. 3. M-79 Grenade Launcher Stats : Fire Rate 1 Damage 5 Clip Size N/A Max Rounds 10 This single-barreled, break-action grenade launcher was developed during the Vietnam War. Commonly referred to as the "Blooper", it fires 40mm HE grenades that contain enough explosives to produce more than 300 fragments with a lethal radius of up to five meters. NOTE : This is an excellent weapon. The grenade launcher is much faster than grenade and explodes upon impact. Great range of explosion make this weapon as one of the most useful weapon. But it is only suitable in long range and cannot use this on close range or you will caught the explosion yourself. +++ MISC. +++ 1. Taser Stats : Fire Rate 1 Damage 5 Clip Size N/A Max Rounds Infinite Using CO2 cartridges, this weapon fires a probe that lodges one inch deep in the victim's body. Then a charge of 500,000 volts is passed along a wire connecting the weapon to the probe. This charge can be sustained indefinitely until a victim catches fire. NOTE : This is my favorite weapons in the earlier stage. It has unlimited ammo and can be used in stealth mission. Don't underestimate this taser - this baby can zap a person from a long distance. Basically, if you can see the man, you can zap him ^_^. When other games uses knife as the standard equipment, taser adds a nice touch on this game. Oh yeah, be careful when you use this. If the enemy burns, you have to wait until the fire stops before you pick up his weapon or you will die. That's why don't zap a person when he's close. 2. C4 Explosives Stats : Fire Rate N/A Damage 5 Clip Size N/A Max Rounds N/A These incendiary blocks are made of a putty-like material which can be molded to the user's liking. The C4 explosive putty is then wired to a fuse and a friction igniter, allowing the user to detonate the explosive from a distant or protected position. NOTE : This is a special type kind of weapon. You are not able to get it from the enemy. You use this weapon on certain places. C4 is only for blowing things on the mission, and you cannot use this on the enemy. Lame. +++ NON-WEAPON ITEM +++ 1. Flashlight Stats : Fire Rate N/A Damage N/A Clip Size N/A Max Rounds N/A Standard equipment for all agency operatives, this flashlight is shockproof and charged by a 300 hours battery. NOTE : You cannot use it to hit behind enemies' neck or anything ^_^. This is an ordinary flashlight - you use it to see in the dark. 2. Keycard Stats : Fire Rate N/A Damage N/A Clip Size N/A Max Rounds N/A A standard magnetic-strip card key. NOTE : Use this to open locked doors. Get it from a killed enemy. 3. Antigen Stats : Fire Rate N/A Damage N/A Clip Size N/A Max Rounds N/A This device is used to subcutaneously inject a fine stream of fluid under high pressure without puncturing the skin, and is loaded with an experimental serum capable of counteracting the effects of the syphon filter virus. NOTE : Use this on the patients. 4. Viral Scanner Stats : Fire Rate N/A Damage N/A Clip Size N/A Max Rounds N/A Developed in secret by the viral research branch of PHARCOM Inc.. This device is capable of detecting trace particle of the syphon filter virus from up to 50 meters away. It can also scan through some solid objects and provide visual feedback of their contents. NOTE : This is a very useful device. Not only it will detect the syphon filter virus, it can detect boxes, enemies, barrels, switches, etc - it can see thru walls. This is very useful for a sniper to know where the targets are. ======================================= ++++++++++ V. WALKTHROUGH ++++++++++ ======================================= o NOTE: A small note, READ a head in the walkthrough before playing the game, not doing so may cause you to mess up. Level 1: Georgia Street - Washington DC AGENCY DIRECTIVE: Our FBI informant has pinpointed the terrorist viral attack in the DC subway system. Our contacts within US Defense and Interpol confirm the identities of the terrorist. We will drop you in after CBDC (US Army Chemical and Biological Defense Command) operations begin. Your targets are Rhomer, Kravitch, Aramov and Girdeux. SATCOM has intercepted coded microwave traffic. Rhoemer must have an uplink station in the area. Assist CBCD if needed. Avoid collateral casualties if passable. Check your objectives on site for more information. o Run forward and take a right at the corner hold the R1 button and press the Square button a few times to kill the enemies, then let go of the R1 button and press it again so that the target lock locks onto another target. Do this while running and keep doing it until all of the bad guys are dead. Run up to the dead bodies and take their ammo. After that run to the first building with glass doors. Run straight into the glass door and it should break, then take a left when your in the building. Make sure that you take the 2nd left and not the first, the first only takes you to a small room and a window, the second takes you to a hall way. Follow the hallway, and when you see some brown boxes, hold the X button to make you character duck and walk. Now walk the rest of the hall way like this until a message pops up and says: "Press Triangle to Contact Lian Xing ". After that you can let go of X. Run down the hall way some more and stop before you reach a table and some chairs. Turn to the left about 90° so that you are facing a wall and to the right of you is a room. Equip you Sniper Rifle, press and hold R2 until you are in front of the room then let go. Quickly press and hold the L1 button then Triangle and aim for the bad guys head, press Square to shoot him. Run to where he was standing. Press the Triangle button the open the box on the ground next to the wall and then equip a different gun than the sniper rifle (Silenced 9MM is a good one). Hold the X button and stay ducking and stay behind the counter. Some guards will come in, use the R1 button to lock on to them and then let go of the X button, then shoot them with the Square button and duck again. When they are all dead get out from behind the counter and take a right and then go to the back you will see a table and a chair, on top of the table is the Comm. Array. Shoot it, and you will get a check point. Now run back into the hall way and get to where you had to duck, and start ducking aging. This time you can see the reason I told you to duck and walk, so wont get shot! Sneak up to the boxes in front of him hold R1 and shoot him when he puts his gun down. Press the Triangle button when your next to the boxes to climb them, then run to where the bad guy was and take his ammo. Shoot the window and climb out it. Another message should pop up that says: Press Triangle to Contact Lian Xing. Press Triangle to have a small talk with her, then it should say Objective Added. Turn right towards the gate and run to it. Goto the crone (the one next to the box) and shoot the lock off of the gate. When the gate door opens run towards the wall and hit the Elevator Call Switch. When the elevator gets to the top, get on it and press Triangle. Get off of the elevator when it come to the bottom and then a message will pop up saying: Press Triangle to contact Lian Xing. Equip you Flash Light, go forward a little bit and then take a 90° turn to the right and walk to the wall. When you get there Press Triangle on the Power Switch. After that equip a gun weapon (Silenced 9mm will do fine) now go back up the elevator. When you get to the top, there should be some gun fire coming from a bad guy up on a balcony on the building behind you, press R1 to aim at him then turn around so that you are facing him and kill him. Run out the gate. Press Triangle on the blue box in front of you and then face the building next to it, and press Triangle, now you should be on the edge of a balcony. Press Up on the D-Pad to climb up then run to the other end and press Triangle again. This time hold L2 or Left on the D-Pad to climb across, stop when your about 1/2 way across and hold R1 and then some bad guys will come from behind the coroner, when they come shoot them dead and then continue your way across the bar. When you come to the end press Down on the D-Pad to drop, run forward and then press Triangle to open the box in front of you. Get the M-79, turn around and run to the other side of the balcony, turn left and jump off. Now go back through the window, and back into the hall way (Be careful there are bad guys in the hall way). After dealing with the bad guys run out of the building so that your back on the streets where the game started. Once there run over to where you were standing when the game started, and run toward the fire (be careful there are more bad guys this time) stop when you are next to the ally. Follow the ally until you are in front of a cop car...get away from the car, there are bad guys on top of the buildings and if the shoot the cop car while you are standing next to it..."good bye" (the car blows up and you will die). Kill the duds on the buildings then go down the street, to your left should be burning cars and some CBCD's and some bad guys, to your right is just more burning cop cars. Wait for the cop car to blow up and land before you try to rescue the CBCD's. Kill the two bad guys and then enter the building through the doors (break them). Run into the hall way, there is a box with a Flak Jacket to the left at the begging of the hallway, take it if you need it, other wise follow the hallway. Be sure to have a gun equipped before you enter the part with the pillars. Run over to the end of the room, there should be a CBDC agent trying to dis-arm a bomb. When you find him, protect him as much as possible (that means to do all in your power to keep those damn enemies away). As soon as it says "Check Point" you can finish off any bad guys that are still alive and then pull out your Flash light again, then head towards the darkened hallway. Upon entering the dark hall way, there is a box with M-16 Bullets to your left. Take it if you need it, and proceed through the hallway some more, when you get to the other room, use the Flash Light to locate the other box which contains Grenades. After picking up the ammo, get back into the pillar area. Equip another weapon, and head out of the building. But before exiting the building, in font of the windows, start shooting the bad guys on the roof, you can use the walls of the building that your in as protection and for something to hide with. After you kill the bad guys, get out of the building and get back to the ally. Don't worry about the guys on the roof, they won't be able to hit you as long as you are running towards the ally. Once you in the ally, you should be safe, now run to where the first building was. Instead of going to the first building, run down the street some more and into the sub way (and yes do kill the bad guys attacking at you and the CBCD's). Run down the subway ramp and at the bottom is a box with a Flak Jacket (its in the dark part, so you need to use your flash light), take it if you need it. Head to the gates and then go down the ramp, it is dark but you do not need to use your Flash Light, because at the bottom it will light up. While going down the ramp a message will pop up: Press Triangle to Contact Lian Xing. When entering the subway, be careful because there are many bad guys around looking for trouble. My advice is to keep running while you shoot at them, and to stay off of the train tracks. When you kill the bad guys, goto the bomb and press Triangle on it. UPPER TERMINAL || || <--Here is a map || || || _|| ^=Entrance || ||| *=Bomb _||_||| (Gabe should be heading down) |] ^|| |]  || |]  || |]  || |]  *| |]  || |]  || |]  || |]  || |]  || |]  || |]  || |]  || |]_____| |[ | |[ _| |_| o So realy all you have to do is run down the ramp, continue running and then take a left, jump into the train tracks, and run over to the other side and press Triangle to climb up and then Dis arm the bomb. After that you should get a check point. Now, run to the end of the station that you have not been to yet (opposite from where you entered). Keep going until you reach the end of the subway station and there is another exit, leading down. You can go down it, but it's a waste of time. Now then, turn to the right and cross the tracks again (if your on the main platform) Your goal is a door with a sign: (-) NO EXIT. Go in there, pull out your flash light and turn left, there should be a Elevator Call Switch, go to it and hit it. The elevator is to the right of that, wait for it to come up, then ride it down. Equip a gun, walk forward until you can turn left, and then turn left and shoot the un-suspecting bad guy in the head or where ever you fell like hitting him (heehee ^_^). After he has been killed, wait until the train passes you by before you try to make it across, other wise you may find yourself road kill. Now when crossing, go to the left a little and then go straight for the main platform. Get up on it quickly and then you will see two more un-suspecting bad guys. The best way to take out two people fast and with out getting caught is to get two very fast head shots. Well if your not fast with the aiming, this could give you some practise. After you kill them pick up their ammo and then head to the opposite end of the station. o NOTE: Always be on the look out, you may never know when a enemy is around the corner, and don't rely on your map in the lower left hand corner, it's not as accurate as you think it is. o NOTE: If there is a dark area that you can't see very well, don't use your flash light, that will attract attention, instead use your Sniper Rifle and zoom in to 36x. If that doesn't help then walk a little closer and try again. o NOTE: People who are wearing a Flak Jacket can only be killed by a shot in the head. o OK when you get to the other end of the station, there will be some bad guy with a Flak Jacket and a shot gun, kill him and then press Triangle on the bomb next to him. - After that is an insanely awesome movie and then it will ask you: Do you wish to save you game? No [Yes] o Well its simple, if you want to keep your file, choose Yes, if not then choose no. ============================================================================ Level 2: Destroyed Subway - Washington DC INCOMING FROM BENTON: You're lucky to be alive. Ten square blocks of downtown D.C. just sank 20 feet into the ground. It looks like Rhoemer had the entire subway wired to explode as part of his escape plan. It's likely you've cut his time table short, and that he's still down there with you. Aramov and Girdeux also remain uncounted for. Don't let Rhomer escape that terminal, and be aware that you're completely cut off from all reinforcements. o As the level starts, you will see that most of the station is burning, do not touch that fire! Fire will kill you. o Walk forward a little bit and then take a right, then go forward some more. Stop at the box with the Flak Jacket, and then go left and get up on the main platform. Now go forward a bit then take a left, walk in between the wall and the burning train, but keep a distance from the train when you walk through there. You will notice that when you are walking through there, their is a bad guy caught on fire walking towards you, all you need to do is tap the Down button on the D-Pad, then hold up on the D-pad, and you should run away from the man, but don't go too far, because the burning man will fall down at the edge of the train. Wait for this flames to go out and then continue in that direction. When you get down to the end, take a right and go over to the side where two guards are shooting at you, kill them first though. Get on the train tracks, then pull your self up with the Triangle button on the other side, you should be in a little door way. You should be looking out the door way, so that you're looking at the main platform. Goto the subway train to the left of you and press Triangle to climb up on it. Get on top and run all the way to the other side, and then jump off at the end. Get into the train tracks and and start strafing to the left and shoot at the bad guys. o Be sure to pick up the C4, its at the end of the train tracks, and you need to have the Flash Light out. o Two of the bad guys have guns and are shooting at you, while the third is throwing grenades. It isn't worth the trouble to kill the third guy since he has a Flak Jacket and is throwing grenades, in stead get up on the main platform and run right next to him and then take a left and run all the way, and don't stop. Don't worry about the guy with the grenades once you get to a red box, because he wont follow you. Now start climbing on the red box. From this point on it will be hard to explain, so I'll let you take care of it, but I will give some hints. o Use the L1 button to look around and look for edges that you can climb on. o Be on the look out for other bad guys. o If it looks like you may be able to climb or jump on, even if it doesn't, still try to climb or jump on it. o Never give up "You cun' do 'et" "You cun' do 'et all night long" -- (The Water Boy) o When you get to the top go forward and a message will pop up: (yeah you know the one) Press Triangle to contact Lian Xing. After that run forward some more, and when there is a chance to go left stop an then go left. Cross the train tracks, equip the Flash Light and head left some more. There should be a Gas Mains. Turn it off and then get back to the main platform. o Be sure that you are on the right side of the platform, if not then run back and change sides. o Now run all the way down the platform and to the gate, press Triangle to plant the C-4 and then run like hell to get way. Wait for the CBCD. When he gets there, run with him to the bomb, and then cover him so that he wont die while he is disabling the bomb. o Now goto the end of the subway closets to you and take a left onto the train tracks. There should be a hallway that you can go into. Start going in and get in front of the train, climb on the box to get on top of the train. Once you are on top of the train, run to the other end, jump off and kill any bad guys on the way. Repeat this patter until the level ends. Oh and be careful there is another flaming bad guy that try to catch you on fire. - After that is movie and then it will ask you: Do you wish to save you game? No [Yes] o Well its simple, if you want to keep your file, choose Yes, if not then choose no. ============================================================================ Level 3: Main Subway Line - Washington DC INCOMING FROM BENTON: Logan, Intel indicates Rhoemer has fled the scene Jekkens is meeting heavy resistance in the Washington Park area and DCPD reports fifteen officers down. We fear an agency leak has given his position away. Mara Aramov's identity has been confirmed by Interpol. Do not let her escape. Caution: FEMA is using the east bound tracks to shuttle emergency personnel: do not use explosives of any kind in the tunnel or you will cause a derailment. o At the begging of the level there is a Flak Jacket in the box behind you. Get it if you need it, otherwise head forward and follow Aramov down the subway. There's not much to this level, just keep running and shoot Aramoy in the head as much as you can. A word of caution: Keep away from the trains! They will kill you! - After that is an movie and then it will ask you: Do you wish to save you game? No [Yes] o Well its simple, if you want to keep your file, choose Yes, if not then choose no. ============================================================================ Level 4: Washington Park - Washington DC INCOMING FROM BENTON: Mission Redirect: CDBC has requested direct intervention and assistance. Your new orders are to: locate viral bombs, plant homing beacons, wait for the arrival of CBDC, and provide covering fire. The bombs are set to detonate within the hour. Terrorist resistance is heavy. Agency Intel reports that Anton Girdeux is leading the park operation. Exercise caution. We have lost all communication from Jenkkins' team. o Ok this level is realy confusing for me to try to walk you through it, so I just made a big map for you to use. Realy all you need to do is find and disarm the bombs, rescue the CBDC hostages, kill Marcos and get to the Memoral, witch shouldn't be too hard. Use the map below for guidance on disabling all the bombs. TIPS: o Whenever you find a bomb, press Triangle and then get ready to protect a CDBC agent. o Keep Pausing the game so that you can see where you are on the map. o When rescuing the CBDC hostages, use your sniper rifle and shoot through the fence. o Remember, you are limited to the amount of time that you have, so go after the bombs first then do the other missions! o Use some of the same tactics from the earlier levels o The map may not be perfect but its pretty close. The first bomb is in a boxed in area. The second is behind the statue. The third is near a boxed in tree. The fourth is next to a building with a bad guy on top. Key: *=Bomb C= Comm. Array ^= Starting point <>= Final Destination H= Hostage CBDC MEMORAL _____ | <> | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |____ | | | C | |______ | | | | | | | _____ | | | | | H| <---TENNIS COURTS | | | | | * |<- Fourth bomb | | | | ____________| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |_____________ | | | | | ________| | | | | | | | * |<- Third Bomb | |________| | |_________ | | * <- Second Bomb | [ ] | |_________ ______| | | | | | | First bomb -> |* | | | | | | | | | | | | ^ | |_________| o To get to the Comm. Arry, you will need to climb up many obstacles to get to the top of a weirdly shaped building. o When in the maze, look for Marcos, when you find him, finish him off with a quick head shot. If he gets away, you will need to follow him and hunt him down. He has a Flak Jacket so body shots wont do any good. o When approaching the Memorial building be VERY cautious. There will be a bunch of fleeing wild bad guys with Flak Jackets running towards you shooting up anything in site! There not too hard to kill if you use good hiding tactics. When they are dead, enter the building. - After that is some talking and then it will ask you: Do you wish to save you game? No [Yes] o Well its simple, if you want to keep your file, choose Yes, if not then choose no. ============================================================================ Level 5: Freedom Memorial - Washington DC FORWARDED FROM AGENCY INTEL: Spysat has completed a detailed analysis of Girdeux's body armor: it is imperious to all conventional weapons. Our armor specialists are working on it, but your agent may have to improvise to find a weak point. Our demolition expert has noted that the use of any explosive device will trigger the viral bomb. o This is the first boss fight in the game, and he's not too easy! o First off keep out of his eye site, if he finds you, you are toast! o The best tactic is to stay behind him or behind the pillars. o His weakens is the gas tanks on him that fuels his flame thrower, keep shooting those and they should blow up causing damage to him. o There isn't much else that I can say about this level, it's realy up to you. I bet your sitting there like this :| o If you ever get caught on fire, press the O (Circle) button to do a roll. (Just like back in 1st grade, when caught on fire, you should Stop. Drop. and Roll. heeheehee) But...most likely you'll be dead before you get a chance to do so. ...When you finally kill him read on... - After that is a cool movie and then it will ask you: Do you wish to save you game? No [Yes] o Well its simple, if you want to keep your file, choose Yes, if not then choose no. ============================================================================ Level 6: Expo Center Reception - New York City INCOMING FROM MARKINSON: I've approved your request for access to the FBI files on Jonathan Phagan. I think your suspicions may be correct. The PHARCOM reception may be a cover for a meeting between Phagan and Rhoemer. Follow Phagan closely. Obviously, you must not be seen or captured. You are authorized to eliminate any of Phagan's security, but use silenced weapons only. Once you've observed the meeting, use whatever means necessary to capture Phagan alive. Officially, the agent knows nothing about this. o Ok let me get one thing straight: In this level, stealth and head shots are the number one thing that you need to worry about! o As soon as the mission starts, go left and start climbing up on the edge and get to the top. When you reach the top, hide behind one of the pillars and hold X, then wait for one of the guards to start walking down the ramp, when he passes you by shoot the other guard in the head. Run up to him and take his ammo then wait a sec. Because Phagan is taking his sweet ass time and you don't want him to see you. There is a guard right around the corner, you can sneak up on him and shoot him in the head, or wait for him to walk by then shoot him in the head, either way you need to kill him stealthy. Run up and take his ammo, then there should be a blue hallway. When you get there, get to a spot where you can see the other hallway (it's yellow). When you find a spot, hold L1 to aim and then wait for a guard to pass by, when he does kill him. Take his bullets and slowly walk through the turning hallway. When you get there, go forward a little and then stop, there should be a guard walk back and forth. At this point, you should equip your sniper riffle and aim about a where head will be at in about 1-2 second(s) and then time the shot. After killing him go down the hallway.At the end of the hallway, there is arch and a piece of wall sticking out just big enough for you to hide behind. Get there and hide behind it and wait for the guard to walk by, when he does shoot him in the head with your Sniper Rifle. Be careful at this part, when walking towards him to get his ammo, take a right and goto where the hallway takes another turn, after that a new guard should be walking towards you. At this point, run towards a wall that says: ANCIENT EGYPT, and hide there for cover. The guard will start to walk down the hallway that you came from to enter the room. When he gets to the end, use your sniper rifle again to kill him. After that run forward and take a left at the first hallway. When you get in there be ready for another guard. Take care of him, then walk through the little door way. o A little movie scene should take place then the level will start again and it should say Check Point. After that, walk into the room on your right. A guy named Benton should be in there, he will be shooting at you. To kill him, shoot him in the head. Be careful he runs around quickly and uses a strong and fast gun. o After you kill him, go and take all his stuff. You should pick up some ammo, a flak jacket, get a Check Point, and Press the Triangle button to Contact Lain Xing should all appear on the screen. o After you get all that stuff, get to the bottom of the room and go to the right hall way, the one with a red blinking light. Go to it, it should say: Gate Control Panel. Press Triangle to open the door, but be careful there is a bad guy in there. Go to the doors that say, MUSEUM STAFF ONLY and press Triangle LEVEL 6 NOT YET FINISHED ============================================================================ Level 7: Expo Center Dinorama - New York City INCOMING FROM LIAN: Aramov is interrogating Phagan near the dinosaur exhibit. I'm losing the audio feeds, but she keeps saying something about Syphon Filter. Both Aramoy and Phagan have information we need. You must stop Aramov from killing Phagan, but without killing her. o At the start of the level, hit Down on the D-Pad so that you do a 180' turn and are looking at the door that was behind you. Keep your eye on this door, and hold L2 to run to the left. As you run to the left, the door should bust open and there should be three bad guys in the door way. Shoot them in the head, and not in the body because they have Flak Jackets. Be careful though, there will be a fourth bad guy to the right behind a gate in a hall way. (he has a Flak Jacket too, so be sure to get a head shot.) o Once you are through with the four bad guys, exit through the door that the first three guys came through, and follow the hallway until you see a doorway. Go through the doors and enter the room, then it will say: "Press the Triangle button to Contact Lain Xing". Now goto the right or left about half way and press Triangle. Gabe should jump onto a poll going across the room above the glass in the middle. Grab onto the poll and goto the middle and drop off. o There will be a movie that shows Gabe dropping off of the poll and falling through the glass. o You will now be down stairs in the 'Lobby'. The place is flooded with guards, so you should use your best techniques, either the run around like a chicken and havin' gunz blazing, shooting this way in that like in Hollywood, or the sniper approach. Which ever one fits you most. Anyway, after you have cleared out the place stand in front of the information desk, and climb up the cement blocks on your right. Get the flak jacket, cardkey, and shot gun shells. ============================================================================ Level ??: Stronghold CATACOMBS - Uzhhorod, Ukraine INCOMING FROM MARKINSON: If these catacombs are like the ones we shut down seneath Paris, then Rhomer is using a palm print activation system for security. You will have to follow one of Rhoemer's guards or lab workers to Phagan's cell, and wait for them to open the cell door. Remember, I need Phagan alive. The agency has broken off contact with the State Department. Do not acknowledge any communications you might receive from other agency members. We are running out of time. o ========================================== ++++++++++ VI.
