    Update V1.2: PS2 ADDITIONS
    Update V2.0: GC ADDITIONS
    Thank you for clicking here again. My FAQ will explain how to 
    neutralize certain enemies that ONLY pose a serious threat to your 
    mission.  Certain levels require pure stealth with non-lethal force. I 
    will describe effective methods of lethal and non-lethal force in 
    certain areas without having to waste too much precious ammo (although 
    it might be necessary). If an area can be passed through without force 
    then I will NOT mention it here.
    Before reading my FAQ, I highly suggest playing the single-player game 
    before attempting any of the methods mentioned here.  I WILL NOT give 
    any tips or hints for multiplayer, so look away if that's what you came 
    -Use your entire SC-20K inventory when you have it (sticky shockers, 
    airfoils, etc).
    -Always hold your breath when using sniper mode.
    -For multiple guards, use the "whistle and lure" for one guard near a 
    doorway and knock him out. Hide his body AWAY from the door and repeat 
    for the other ones.
    -Also, if you whistle in one area and move away, a guard will walk 
    towards the area you previously were, setting him up for a non-lethal 
    blow to the back of the head.
    -Always shoot out lights near doorways or in hallways.
    -Use the "SWAT-turn" anytime you see rows of columns, doors or boxes.
    -ALWAYS walk slowly when approaching a guard who is looking for you! 
    YOU MUST REMEMBER THIS! If you move any faster he will hear you!
    That should about do it for this section.  Start the game!
    *WARNING*If you have not played these missions before then try it now 
    before reading on because you'll be clueless! There are certain moments 
    in the game that require some scripted gunplay but follow my methods 
    and you might not even have to fire a shot. Remember, only the enemies 
    or civilians who pose a serious threat to the mission are whom I point 
    out. All my strategies were applied on Hard mode and can be used in 
    Normal, too.
    Timor, Dili Mission 1
    Heading for the Embassy courtyard (3 guards; non-lethal force only)
    -Guard #1: Shoot all the lights upstairs for safety. Head downstairs 
    and lure the first guard with a whistle. Smack him in the head.
    -Guard #2: Shoot the light on top of the door located next to the 
    stairs. A guard will investigate in the darkness; smack him in the 
    -Guard #3: Use the "whistle-and-lure" method for the last one. Elbow 
    him in the head.
    Extraction point (2 guards; lethal force authorized)
    -The last two guards at the end of the level don't need to be taken out 
    with lethal force. Just use elbows to the head to complete this 
    Saulnier Cryogenics Lab Mission 2
    Underground subway (3 guards; lethal force authorized)
    -Guard #1: (at the front of the train): Either snipe him or use the 
    "whistle-and-lure" method.
    -Guards #2 & #3: (at the back of the train): At the end of the darkened 
    train, stay inside and wait for the conversation to begin. Toss a FRAG 
    GRENADE between their feet and watch the hilarity.
    PS2/GC UPDATE: Both guards at the back of the train DO NOT converse and 
    walk around instead. Ignore the first guard and wait for him to walk 
    away. Snipe the second guard or use a Sticky Shocker.
    Cubicle offices (2 guards; lethal force authorized)
    -Guards #1 & #2: Just turn off the lights next to the door and quickly 
    scurry to the other side and exit.
    Computer room (2 guards; lethal force required)
    -Guards #1 & #2: Crouch and run to the door. Shoot them both point 
    blank. Don't worry about bullets because one of the satchels they drop 
    contains extra ammo. BUT DON'T ACCESS THE COMPUTER YET! Follow the next 
    tip first.
    Detonation timer guards (2 guards; lethal force required)
    **Before accessing the computer, shoot out all the lights in the 
    hallway AND THEN access the computer. When the bomb timer begins:
    -Guard #1: This one exits the boiler room. If you shot out all the 
    lights, he basically runs to the other door and heads for the second 
    floor. Wait for him to leave and then deal with the second guard.
    -Guard #2: This one just wanders in lost darkness. Wait for the first 
    guard to leave then just neutralize him in any way you see fit. DON'T 
    Server room, upstairs (3 guards; 1 motion detector; lethal force 
    -Guard #1: Before heading inside the room from the stairway, shoot out 
    the light on the ceiling. Wait for the three guards to finish shooting 
    the windows and wait for the other two to leave. Use the "whistle-and-
    lure" method and neutralize the lone guard.
    -Guards #2 & #3: Do not bother with these two at the end of the 
    hallway. They will only search for you if the cameras inside the server 
    room spot you.
    Receptionist Area (2 guards; lethal force authorized)
    -Guard #1: This guard will walk up to the computer and start using it. 
    Ignore him for now and deal with guard #2.
    -Guard #2: This guard will walk to the Keypad door. Snipe him silently 
    from darkness. From here, either knock out the second guard or shoot 
    Freezer room #1 (1 guard, 1 turret; lethal force authorized)
    -Guard #1: Deactivate the turret by walking to the left slowly. Sneak 
    up behind the guard and smack his head. 
    **Do not snipe him from behind because he is hunched over**
    PS2/GC UPDATE: The turret is gone but the guard now walks around the 
    Freezer room #2: (2 guards; lethal force authorized)
    -Guards #1 & #2: Both can be neutralized with sticky shockers. Stay 
    crouched at the end of the walkway and whistle. Shock them when they 
    get close. 
    **You can avoid this confrontation by shimmying on the walkway but its 
    too risky because of the cold steam blasts**
    PS2/GC UPDATE: The cold steam blasts were removed. Sam can now shimmy 
    safely to the other side. 
    Hesperia Railways Mission 3
    Train car #2 (1 civilian; non-lethal force only)
    -Civilian #1: Use the "whistle-and-lure" method. Run up to him and 
    smack him in the head.

    the caged dog. Neutralize him when he enters.

    the first one and shoot the second one as an alternate. 
    **Regardless of the second one's threat, he cannot shoot Saul**
    Elevator entrance with Dahlia Tal
    -Shoot Dahlia when Lambert authorizes it. Pull out the pistol and aim 
    for her head. 
    **It will take at least 4-5 bullets to kill Dahlia in Hard mode**
    Shoshanna Warehouse underground (15 guards total; lethal force 
    -Guard #1 & #2: Shoot them point blank from the elevator and wait for 
    guard #3 to run up the stairs to you.

    shoot the third guard when he approaches.
    -Guard #4 & #5: Walk slowly down the metal stairs and stay on the left 
    wall. Guard #4 will walk and stop near you. Smack him in the face. 
    Guard #5 will walk all the way to the end of the walkway near the 
    stairs. After neutralizing #4, shoot guard #5 with an airfoil or a 
    sticky shocker.
    -Guard #6: This one patrols the next walkway. Snipe him in the head.  
    **BTW, if you miss the first shot you'll alert the next three guards 
    which is even better**
    -Guard #7, 8, & 9: Fire a single shot to the caged area to get all 
    three guards' attention. Shoot them all point blank. Now head inside

    -Guard #10, 11, 12, 13, 14, & 15: Guard #10 stands immobile at the end 
    of the tunnel (near the ND133 lab). Snipe him from behind and inch 
    forward in the darkness. Guard #11 stands immobile in front of the 
    elevator. Snipe him too. The last four all stand at the end of the 
    walkway from your position. Snipe them one by one. 
    **Don't worry about getting shot by the last four guards; they'll start 
    shooting aimlessly in the air, setting up a perfect headshot**

    -Guard #1: Shoot him from inside the elevator or sneak up behind him.

    the right one when the two guards begin a conversation. After the talk, 
    guard #2 will walk away. The first guard will walk towards you and 
    stop. When he turns around, conk him in the head.
