All of this content is based on my own observations. If you write in with a
useful tip,
and I include it in a future version, you will, of course, be credited.

Speaking of which, you are free to repost this wherever, just please keep me
credited
as the original author. Thanks. If you're NOT reading this on Gamefaqs, you
might want
to check there for a more recent version. I will not reply to any more mail
asking me
for permission to post this. While I appreciate you asking, my stance on this is
clearly spelled out in this paragraph, and I get tired of repeating myself.

I don't mean to be a jerk, but I'm getting a lot of very repetitive emails. Read
this
before you send me email. Thanks.
1. Do not mail me ANYTHING about ANY missions not covered in this guide. Any
such mail
will be deleted unread.
2. Check gamefaqs BEFORE mailing me asking about updates. The latest version is
always
to be found there. If you mail me asking about an update that's already been
posted,
you will not receive a reply.
3. Do not mail me a carbon copy of somebody else's faq or forum post.
4. There appear to be subtle differences, mostly in the karma engine, between
the PC
and console versions. If you're on a console, and something is working
differently for
you than I describe it here (like sniping the Don off his balcony) I don't want
to hear
about it.
5. If something is working differently for you than I describe it (like being
able to
walk past the elevator guard with the hostage in mission 4) I don't want to hear
about
it unless you can tell me EXACTLY what CAUSED that difference in gameplay. If it
doesn't work for ME, it's not going in the guide.
6. I'm not tech support. If I don't cover a bug or oddity in this guide, then I
didn't
encounter it and probably can't help you.
7. Apparently this needs to be spelled out; do NOT mail me about the bomb bug in
mission four. I didn't encounter it, so I can't help you with it. Sorry. Try
tech
support.

                                    OVERVIEW
=================================================================================
=====

I included a brief description of each map, and some general tips to keep in
mind. If
you're having trouble, I'd suggest trying a few more times with those in mind,
before
skipping ahead to the walk-through. I stopped noting recommended equipment
because I
got tired of always recommending chloroform and a silenced 9mm.

I've broken each level down into a number of challenges, and provided different
methods for beating each challenge. You can pick and choose which ones suit you
best.
I've also noted, at the end, what methods you should use if you want to score
Silent
Assassin on each level. Then, for grins, I included data on what Loot you might
want
to take with you at the end, for the trophy room.

My guide is written assuming you want to play this game the way it was meant to
be
played. How was it meant to be played? Just look at the title. Hitman.
Not "Gunman",
not "Shotgun-toting-thugman", etc. Sure, violent sprees are sometimes a viable
option,
but if you rely on them, and never learn the ways of the Silent Assassin, then
you're
missing out on a great gameplay experience, and I feel sorry for you.


                                  GAMEPLAY TIPS
=================================================================================
=====
This game plays very differently from standard 3D shooters, and, in more subtle
ways,
differently from the original Hitman. The controls are a little odd, but if you
play
the first mission a few times, you'll be used to them in no time. The AI is
amazingly
deep and realistic. The Mafia guys all know each other, so your disguise doesn't
stack
up to close inspection, but conversely, they DON'T know the mailman. If you're
dressed
as him, they won't be nearly as suspicious. Conversely, the delivery boy and
mailman
don't know you're not a Mafia guy, and will ignore you in that disguise.

1. Sneaking up on people-
       This is a much smaller part of the game than in the original, which is
good,
       because it's bloody hard now. People will get a little suspicious if you
walk
       up on them from behind, unless you're sneaking. Sneaking is very slow.
What
       this means is that you can generally only sneak up on enemies
deliberately
       placed for that purpose, like guys who are distracted, or stationary
enemies
       that you can come at from behind. The unarmed and innocent are much
easier.
       They will flee from you, so you can just run up behind them and grab 'em.
2. Disguise-
       This is also a smaller factor than in the first game. Not in that you use
       costumes less, but a suit of clothes alone isn't going to fool the Mafia
into
       thinking you're cousin Luigi. Also important are the way you move, the
way you
       act, and where you go. Generally, you can avoid suspicion by making sure
       nobody gets a good look at you. If someone starts to get suspicious, turn
and
       walk away, and generally the Suspici-O-Meter will slowly go down. Poor
lighting
       can also help keep suspicion down.
3. Hiding-
       Hiding is a major factor in this game. Even a dark corner of a room can
be
       enough to cloak a sneaking Hitman from prying eyes. Look for things to
hide
       behind on levels, like crates or dumpsters.
4. Timing-
       The patrolling guards in this game have routes that take different
lengths of
       time. Thus if some of my recommendations aren't working for you because a
guard
       isn't where I said he'd be, then you probably arrived earlier or later
than I
       did. All I can advise for those situations is wait in a safe spot until
the
       alignment of the guards turns in your favor.
5. Chloroform-
       It's now possible to take out enemies without killing them, but unless
you're
       trying for Silent Assassin, it's generally not worth the bother. They
only
       stay down for about a minute per "bottle". Hold the button down to give
them a
       bigger dose.
6. Ratings-
       At the end of each mission you receive data on how well you did. Your
stealth
       and aggressiveness, as well as how many non-targets you hurt are
considered. A
       perfect score nets you a "Silent Assassin" rating. Typically, this
requires you
       to kill ONLY the target, use only 1 shot per target, and never get
caught.
7. Running-
       The NPCs in this game hate running. Passionately. Maybe their parents all
died
       in some sort of marathon accident, but they all get really suspicious
when you
       run. Now, I'll freely admit I'm not a Russian soldier. But if I was, and
I saw
       another Russian soldier running, but first reaction would not be to OPEN
FIRE!
8. Weapons-
       There's quite a lot of weapons in this game. Apparently they didn't want
to pay
       for licensed gun names, so everything has a pseudonym. Whenever you're
given a
       choice, bring the knife, anesthetic and silenced 9mm on every mission.
Knife-	        The fastest and nosiest way to kill someone from behind.
Fiber wire-     Quieter, but a little time consuming. My weapon of choice close
up.
Anesthetic-     AKA chloroform. Takes ages to use, but you generally have to for
                Silent Assassin ratings. Completely silent.
Silenced 99mm-  My pistol of choice. Quiet, and deadly enough if you land a
headshot.
Silenced 22-    A nice gun, but very weak. Don't try to use it from any sort of
range.
SD Ballers-     Quiet, but super deadly. Nice for when you have a poor shot, or
you
                have to take out more than one guy quietly. Alas, it takes ages
for 47
                to prepare them, and they're so powerful, the target tends to go
                flying.
Other pistols-  All the other pistols are noisy, and therefore useless.
SMG-SD6-        Nice and quiet. Would be very useful if you could conceal it.
Other SMGs-     The regular SMG and the Uzi are noisy, and therefore useless
unless
                part of a disguise.
Crossbow-       The crossbow is basically a weak and awkward, but silent sniper
rifle.
Sniper rifles-  They're all about the same, except for the custom rifle from
Japan.
                That thing is sweet.
Other rifles-   The other rifles are noisy and therefore useless unless part of
a
                disguise.
9. Bonus weapons from SA ratings-
       I thought I'd put in a section about this, because I see a lot of people
talking
       about it on forums and stuff. I have gotten SA on every mission (so far)
       sequentially. I never went back and re-did any missions from the missions
menu.
       If I wanted to do a mission over, I ALWAYS reloaded. Doing that, I got
the SD
       Ballers on mission 1, the sawn-off on mission 2, and the M4 on mission 5.
This
       was all on regular difficulty. My advice, if you're having trouble
getting the
       rewards, is never to use the missions command. Always restore to repeat a
       mission. Just pretend the missions menu doesn't exit.





                                MISSION 1- ANETHEMA
=================================================================================
=====

This is a big, pretty map that gives you a good chance to get used to the new
controls
and paradigms of Hitman 2. The two primary challenges are getting in, and
getting the
job done.

Tips-
1. The guards all know each other. Get too much in one's face and your disguise
won't
last.
2. There are places guards aren't suppose to go. Don't let real guards see you
there.
3. You can generally use shadowy corners or crouching behind furniture to hide.
It
won't save you when you've got angry guards hunting you, but you can often
conceal
yourself
4. On each floor, find a safe room and watch the map for a while, to get an idea
of
the guards' comings and goings.
5. Notice the guards don't carry their guns visibly.
6. If the Don becomes alarmed, he will stay in his office, and his lawyer will
join
him, with a shotgun.
7. The key to the car is on the Don's brother (the other fat guy in white) but
there's
no easy way to get it without making unnecessary kills and/or noise. I sort of
consider
it your consolation prize if the mission turned into a bloodbath.


FIRST CHALLENGE-        Insertion
---------------------------------
METHOD A-		the direct approach
Run down the hill toward the door in the wall nearest you and hide behind the
chunk of
wall to the right of the door. Eventually, a guard comes out to uh... water the
plants.
You can take him out in the manner of your choosing. For practice runs, or when
learning the area, kill him so he doesn't cause further trouble. However, when
playing
for keeps, chloroform him.

Once he's down, drag him under the trees, and take his uniform and gun. Head
through
the door. If you're impatient, you can instead just open the door when you get
to it
and pop him with the silenced pistol, then drag his body into the back door of
the
garage.


METHOD B-		the postman always shoots twice
You've no doubted noted the postman. When he stops to water the bushes, sneak up
behind him and chloroform him. Make sure you hold down the button til you're
empty.
Drag him into the shadows of the trees, but don't take his clothes yet.

Instead, run along the wall to where the delivery boy is. Stash your guns in the
groceries. As long as he doesn't SEE you do it, everything is cool. If there's
two
boxes, use the one on the right. It'll be brought in sooner.

Run back to the mailman and take his clothes, and his flowers. Run toward the
gate,
keeping the bushes between you and the guards. Once you clear the bushes you
have to
start walking. They won't find any guns on you, and will let you pass. Walk up
to the
front of the house (again, you can run as long as no guards are watching you
closely)
and enter the front door. Save.

Some may prefer dropping the guns first, since it gives you more time inside
before
the mailman wakes up and tells on you. If you run, you can drop the guns and get
to
the postman before he's done piddling. He DOES have a second stopping point
where you
can nab him. Partway along the front wall, he stops to have a smoke, but I found
sneaking behind him there to be really tricky.

The maid will take the flowers, and as she leaves, the guard will follow her.
Run
and hide in the little alcove under the stairs to the left. Sooner or later, the
guard will come back in and stand with his back to you. Chokey chokey! Drag his
body
up past the bend in the stairs and take his clothes and gun. Head to the small
room
across the hall from the kitchen and watch the map for a while. The kitchen is a
really high traffic area. When the coast is clear, head in and get your guns.
The
mailman will probably have woken up by now and told on you, but you're not
dressed
like him any more.


METHOD C-		the delivery boy
Run to where the delivery boy is and wait til he goes inside. Stash your guns in
the
groceries. When he comes back out, chloroform him. Unlike the posty, he won't
alert
the guards when he wakes up. Grab the box with your guns in it and head inside.
Walk
up to the side kitchen door and inside. Here's where it gets a bit spotty.

The kitchen is a high traffic area, and it's very easy to get totally screwed by
guards coming in here. Once you've gotten your guns, head up the stairs and hope
that
there's nobody walking through this area. If there is, you may be able to hide
in the
left corner of that front room undetected.

The easiest place to get a uniform is probably the guard in the hall here. Lean
around
the corner and shoot him, then quickly drag his body into the room in the middle
of
that floor. No patrols go through there, you see.


SECOND CHALLENGE-      Getting there
------------------------------------
METHOD A-		the incredible flying hitman
A good friend was the first to tell me about this odd little trick. It works
best if
you went in as the posty or delivery boy. As the postman, simply walk up the
stairs in
the kitchen. As the postman, wait until the first guard and the maid are totally
out
of the room, then walk through the room to the right, through the kitchen, and
up the
stairs. In this large upper room, go out on the balcony. There's a broken chunk
of
fence you can walk through that leads to a narrow ledge. If you sneak, you can
just
make it around to the roof beside the Don's office.

The problem with this method is that its very time consuming, but is the easiest
way
to reach your goal as the postman or delivery boy without having to change
clothes
again. You'll probably have to wait for the son and brother to walk up on the
balcony
and then leave again before you make your move on the Don though.


METHOD B-		the incredible climbing hitman
Once you're dressed as a guard, and have your weapons with you, make your way
around
the right side of the house. Give all the guards a wide berth, and don't run
when any
of them are looking at you. Go through the door on the left to the pool/pond
area.
There's four guys who wander through here, including the Don's son and brother,
both of
whom are smarter than the average thug at seeing through disguises.

Hang a sharp left and head up the ladder. Walk across the roof to the door to
the
Don's office. Check your map. You can see the Don on the outside map if he's up
practicing his swing on the balcony.


THIRD CHALLENGE-       Doing the Don
------------------------------------
METHOD A- 		lurking in the shadows
Go into the office through the balcony door from the roof, and stay in the
corner,
sneaking. Pull out your silenced pistol and wait for the Don to show up. If you
were
quick, the timing on this should work out perfectly. When the Don comes in, he
won't
be able to see you very well, so he'll come over and investigate. Wait until the
door he came through swings closed, and shoot Don Fatty with your silenced
pistol.
Quickly take his key and revolver. Optionally, you can try to drag the body out
onto
the roof where it won't be found, but, if you've been quick about the whole
affair,
you can get out before it's discovered.

If you try to get the body out, watch the outside map and make sure the son and
brother aren't out there, and you should be fine.

Alternatively, you can lurk in the upper left corner of the room. This is the
best
spot from which to try to strangle him, but the office is such a high traffic
area,
you really don't want to spend any more time there than you have to.

If wearing a suit, head down the ladder, through the gate towards the garage and
the door in the wall, stopping off in the basement to achieve the last goal. If
you're
the posty or the deilvery boy, creep back along the ledge, and wait til no
guards are
very near, and simply drop into the basement stairwell. If you didn't take too
long,
you should be able to walk out whichever way you came in, as long as you're
careful


METHOD B-		in the bedroom
The best time to do this is when the Don is in his office, but it's made
problematic
because it's tricky to keep track of him AND patrols on the first floor at the
same
time. Head up the stairs to the second floor in the left area of the house.
There's a
highly suspicious guard at the top, but you should have enough time to shoot him
in the
head with your silenced pistol.

Drag his body into the bedroom, and stash him behind the bed. Hide there
yourself, or
in the upper left corner, in the shadows. Wait for the Don to enter, and shoot
him, or
let him head for the balcony and creep up and wire him. Note that the brother
sometimes walks through this area, which can screw you over real fast. If you're
quick, however, he'll still be out by the pool by the time you're doing this.


METHOD C-		the long shot
Fun, but gratuitous. Grab the sniper rifle from the garage and head back out to
the
hill where you started. You can snipe the Don from here. This is easiest to do
if you
used Method A for the first challenge, otherwise, you have to worry about the
guard
by the side door. If he's still alive/awake, wait til he goes out to pee, then
grab
the gun and head out after him. Sneak behind the tree while he's peeing, and
then
head up the hill. Wait til he goes inside to fire. Do the same in reverse to
sneak
back in.

The problem, though, is GETTING to the body. The best way I've found is to
follow the
directions in Method B, which means you STILL have to kill that one extra guard.
The
timing becomes less of an issue though, which is nice.

Tubasoldier finally sent me a reliable way of sniping the Don off the balcony.
This
one works EVERY time. On the hill, counting trees from the gate, you want to
stand
about 3 feet to the right of the second tree this side of the wall (the southern
wall
where the exit is.) When the Don is standing on the far side of the balcony,
partly
hidden behind the wall, wait for him to swing. After he does, he stands there
for a
second looking after the ball. Plug him in the head, and if you're in the right
spot, he'll slide to the ground every time. It's best if you wait til AFTER the
posty
is entirely done with his rounds, which means the THIRD time the Don is on the
balcony.

Here's the catch; assuming you used the R93 and didn't bring in a custom rifle
or
crossbow, the three guards out front will hear the shot and turn to face you.
This
makes them VERY suspicious and they will walk up to you if they see you, and
then get
suspicious and start shooting when they get close.

The best way around this is to go back in through the side gate, and hug the
front wall
so the guy by the garage is the only one who can see you. He'll start to follow
you
as you go behind that little superfluous chunk of detached wall. Once he loses
sight,
he should get bored and go back to the garage. Alternatively you can shoot him
with
the silenced pistol when he's out of the sight of the two guys by the front
door. Walk
to the body and grab the key. Hide it if you want, but it's not required.

Make your way all the way around the back of the house to the other side,
avoiding
close contact with enemies, and check the basement. The guy by the kitchen door
doesn't
exhibit the same behavior as the guys by the front. On your way out, one of the
guys
out front will start following you, but you should be able to get away before he
gets
too suspicious.


METHOD D-		a fourth possibility
Go to the left-hand side of the house, and shoot the Don with a silenced pistol
while
he's on the balcony. You can generally get away with it, but it presents the
same
problems as methods B and C.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
Use Method A for insertion, and drug the guard, rather than killing him, the use
Method B to reach the Don, and Method A to shoot him. The only problem with this
trick is that it means you won't have time to get the Deagle before the drugged
guard wakes up. You can, however, still get the sniper rifle and the Don's
revolver.


THE EASY WAY
------------
Kill that first and get the rifle. Go back out to the hill and find the spot I
mention.
Now go get a sandwich as you've got about 5 minutes to kill while the postman
makes his
rounds. Save your game, then restore until you get the Don to fall off the
balcony.
Walk in and get the guy by the garage to follow you back beside the garage where
his
friends can't see him. Drill him with the silenced 9mm. Walk around behind the
mini-
wall and loot the Don's corpse. Walk along the front of the house so you come up
on the
shotgun guy and remaining front door guard from behind. Drill them both (or
knife 'em.
They won't turn) and hit the basement. Now mosey on out.


LOOT
----
Revolver-       On the Don. Makes a nice souvenir.
9mm pistol-     On any thug.
Knife-          On the cook, but you already have one back at the shed.
Deagle-         In the study. It's easy enough to get, but not if you use my
method
                for getting Silent Assassin. There's an easier Deagle on mission
4, so
                don't sweat it.
Shotgun-        Carried by the lawyer, and the guard at the front door. There's
no
                way to get it AND get Silent Assassin. Ambush the lawyer if you
                really want it as a keepsake.
Golf Club-      Although this'd make a GREAT trophy, it's tricky to get out with
                it without setting off any alarms.
Sniper Rifle-   In the garage. I usually grab this on my way out. Looks great on
the
                wall.





                       MISSION 2- THE STAKE-OUT IN ST. PETERSBURG
=================================================================================
=====

This is a very large and intimidating map, but it's not that hard to learn.
Spend some
time during the briefing getting familiar with the map, notably the sewers and
streets
maps. The mission's main problems are getting the sniper rifle out of the metro,
and
getting it across the square without being detected. My solutions are sort of
bound up
in each other, so I'm treating the map as one challenge instead of two.

Tips-
1. The soldiers will get suspicious if you run, or if you're carrying an odd
weapon.
2. The SVD looks enough like the AK that they will be fooled if you stay about
20 feet
away from them, as long as you have it holstered.
3. You CAN run across the square, just give all soldiers a wide berth, and stop
and
walk if the Suspici-O-meter starts to move.
4. Once you've heard the dialog about the target's identity, there's no need to
listen
to it over again.
5. You can find an open window from which to shoot the target on any floor about
2, in
the apartment building, but the best bet is floor 3.
6. There's a spare uniform waiting for you near the exit of the upper-right
sewer exit.
7. Don't let Diana rush you. Once the meeting starts, it doesn't seem to end.


METHOD A-		a cheap trick
The quick and dirty way to do this mission is to ignore the sniper rifle
completely.
Run up the stairs to the left, and walk into the little room. You should arrive
just as a guard walks behind some lockers. Head through the door, and pick the
lock
on the next one. Run through the sewers (use the map if you're having trouble)
and
take the exit in the upper, right-hand corner of the map.

In front of you will be a uniform. Look around the corner to make sure nobody is
facing you, and grab it. Now head across the square and into the apartment
building.
Enter it through the left hand door and run to the back, then turn and go up the
spiral-ish stairs to the 3rd floor. Make your way to the rooms with the window
while
avoiding the guard. Use the map if you need to.

Zoom in with the binoculars to center the screen on the target; he's the guy in
front with the glasses. Without moving the mouse, switch back to the pistol and
save
your game. Fire off a few shots. You'll probably either kill the target, or need
to
restore. Run out through the right-hand door to avoid the wrath of the incoming
soldier. Make your way out of the area, following the same rules as above re the
soldiers. Don't forget to put your pistol away!

When back at the train station, you might as well grab the stuff from the locker
so
you can keep the rifle for your collection.


METHOD B-		nobody wants to see your rifle
The biggest problem here is getting the sniper rifle out of the metro. The first
part of that challenge, is getting up to the escalator without the citizens
running
up to alert the guards. They will do this when they see you carrying the rifle.
I
haven't found a reliable way to avoid setting them off, but this plan works best
if
they start in the locker area, so that by the time you have the rifle out,
they're
far away with their backs turned. You can wait for them to get into a useful
position,
but you are on a timer here. The easiest thing to do is probably just reload if
they
don't cooperate. Again, the ideal place for them to start is in the locker area.
You
want them to be far away and not facing you when you grab the rifle.

Make sure that you'll be able to reach the escalator without being seen, and
grab
the SVD and head up the escalator. Now, as for avoiding the two guards here,
stop
at the top of the escalator and watch the map. As the guy in the hall turns the
corner, walk into the side room. You should reach it just as the other soldier
turns
behind the lockers. Run to the door, open it, and head on through.

Once in the next room, pick the lock to the sewers. Turn on nightvision and run
to
the exit in the upper left corner of the map. Remove your goggles at the ladder
and
climb up. Head down the narrow alley to your left and you'll see the back of a
soldier, once you get around the corner. Dispose of him in the manner of your
choice,
but be sure it's quiet. Take his clothes if you don't already have a uniform.
You
don't need to worry about hiding the body.

Make sure the SVD is holstered, and RUN to the apartment, following the tips
above
for avoiding detection. Head down the steps and hang a right. Run up and across
the
road, then stick to the round wall, and walk if any soldiers are remotely near
you.
Turn towards the wall so they don't get a good look at your gun or face. Doing
this,
I've been able to walk right by the guards that patrol this area in a wide loop
without the Suspici-O-meter so much as blinking.

Enter the apartment through the left hand door and run to the back, then turn
and go
up the spiral-ish stairs to the 3rd floor. Make your way to the rooms with the
window
while avoiding the guard. Use the map if you need to.

Hold down your crouch button and zoom in with the rifle. Listen to the banter,
and
eliminate the target. He's the one in front with the glasses. Be sure not to
fire on
him while the long-haired guy is behind him. The bullet will go right through
the
target and kill them both, costing you the mission. Once the target is dead, RUN
through the doors on the right to avoid being spotted, and back down to the
bottom
floor.

If you want to make your exit a little easier, leave the rifle here, and pick up
an AK
on your way out. Otherwise, follow my above tips for avoiding detection as you
make
your escape. You can duck by the two guards inside the metro with more very
careful
timing. If you run, you'll generally be okay as long as the guard in the locker
room
doesn't get a good look at you. I recommend saving your game before trying this.
It's
tricky, and it'd suck to pooch the mission here.


METHOD C-		disguise first, rifle later
Run up to the locker room area, and take out the guard who goes behind the
lockers in
the manner of your chosing. Now run back to subway lockers and get your rifle.
This
way, the civilians in the metro won't cause you any worries, as long as you
hoslter
your rifle and walk like a normal soldier. Follow method B for the remainder of
the
mission.

Problem is, killing this guy can put you overbudget for Silent Assassin, and
you're
really going to have to hoof it to get the mission done before he wakes up.


METHOD D-		snipe this!
A couple people have written in to tell me about how they did this mission by
going
directly into the Pushkin building. Alas, none of them ever really describe it
in
much detail, but surprisingly, I found a way to do it and maintain Silent
Assassin!

Start out by acquiring a disguise in the manner of your choosing as described
above.
Leave the sniper rifle in the locker with the loot, and make your way to the
back of
the Pushkin building. Ideally, there shouldn't be anybody outside. Check the map
to
make sure the hallway is clear, and head inside. Quickly go into the room on
your
left (lower end of the map) and hide next to the far side of the door. This way,
the
guard who walks through here won't see you. Once he's gone, bolt into the next
room,
then up the stairs.

Break right, and then take the long hallway at the back of the building. Sneak
near
the end, and get right up next to the door. Look at the map to make sure the
pacing
General is at the far end of the room, or heading that way, and open the door.
Move
so that you can just see the man in brown to the right of the door. From here,
nobody
will get a good look at you after you take the shot.

The target is the one on the far side of the table, blocked from here by the guy
in
brown. Bring out your silenced pistol. Eventually, the man in brown will lean
forward,
allowing you a shot at the exposed head of the target. Take it, then put your
gun away
and bolt backwards away from the door. The other Generals and the man in brown
will
all scramble to safety, and one guard will come up to examine the scene of the
crime.
Keeping an eye on the map, it shouldn't be too hard for you to get downstairs
and back
out the way you came.

If you did it right in the doorway when you took the shot, nobody will know to
look
for a suspicious guard or soldier or whatever, so you can stroll to the exit
with
impunity, as long as you don't get too close to any guards or soldiers.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
Use method B without ever letting the Suspici-O-meter get in the red, and be
sure to
knock out the one soldier, rather than killing him. If you give him a full rags
worth,
you'll have oodles of time. If you are having trouble, try Method D.


THE EASY WAY
------------
Method C is probably the easiest, assuming you kill the first guard. I suppose
cross-
ing the map is actually easier via method A, but the actual shot is easier with
C. D
can be easy too, but it's somewhat unreliable whether or not you can get away
without
having to dodge bullets.


LOOT
----
AK rifle-       On any soldier. Carrying it makes movement outside MUCH easier.
SVD sniper-     In the locker. Both of these available next level, so just pick
one.
.54 pistol-     On some of the guards, such as those by the roadblock. Don't go
out
                of your way to get it though. It's much easier to get later.





                          MISSION 3- KARIV PARK MEETING
=================================================================================
=====

Another big map with a confounding sewer system. Consider your first several
attempts
at this map to be little more than exploration runs.

Tips-
1. The soldiers will get suspicious if you run, or if you're carrying an odd
weapon.
2. The SVD looks enough like the AK that they will be fooled if you stay about
20 feet
away from them, as long as you have it holstered.
3. Explore the sewer thoroughly, so you know where the MANY exits go.
4. All it takes is one audible gunshot and the targets will flee the scene.
5. Sniper rifles are very LOUD.


FIRST CHALLENGE-        Getting in and armed
--------------------------------------------
METHOD A-		stealth
Run over to the crates at the start, and hide behind the two that touch. The
loot is
in the corner they form. Hit sneak here so the soldier and limo won't see you.
Start
picking up whatever gear you want, and keep the camera pointed at the soldier.
Once
the limo has gone, slowly back away from him, keeping the dumpster between you,
then
sidestep to the left behind this second dumpster. The instant he turns his back,
bolt
for the sewers.


METHOD B-		violence
Run over to the crates at the start, and hide behind the two that touch. The
loot is
in the corner they form. Hit sneak here so the soldier and limo won't see you.
Start
picking up whatever gear you want, and keep the camera pointed at the soldier.
Get
your silenced pistol ready, and step out and shoot him when he turns his back.
Drag
him back to the dumpsters, and take his clothes. Holster your SVD, and you'll be
able
to pass for a soldier as long as they don't get too good of a look at you. Don't
let
the limo see your handiwork!

This is where I had my first problem with the SD Ballers. I plugged the soldier
with
them and he flew so far that people on the street saw the corpse and came
running.
Hence my recommendation to use the 9mm.


METHOD C-		speed
If you're not planning on using the car bombs, you can simply bring a sniper
rifle
from one of the two prior missions with you. Once the mission starts, bolt for
the
nearest sewer entrance.


SECOND CHALLENGE-       Doing the deed
--------------------------------------
METHOD A part 1-	car bomb the Mafia boss
Grab both carbombs from the equipment depot, and enter the sewers as described
in
methods A & B above. To the north of the map are two exits close together. You
want
the one that's slightly further away, the northernmost sewer exit on the map.

Look around with the camera before sticking your big, shiny, bald head up.
Ideally,
there should be a man peeing in the corner. He is Mafia boss's driver. If he's
not
there yet, then climb out and crouch behind the box to wait for him.

Those who played the original should be able to figure out what to do here.
Snuff the
guy in whatever way pleases you, take his clothes, and walk out to the street.
Try
not to let any of the other guys get a good look at you, and walk up and plant
the
bomb on the car. Calmly walk back to the sewer.

METHOD A part 2-	car bomb the General
Once in the sewers, you're headed for the exit close to the west of where you
enter.
It's the exit furthest south on the map. As you climb the ladder, you'll notice
a car
parked right on top of it. Attach the bomb, and make your escape through the
sewers.
Easy, eh? If you're quick, you'll make it back to the exit point in time to see
the
General's car go up.


METHOD B-		snipe from the church
The church is pretty much a wash if you want a good rating, but it's there if
you want
to try it. If you followed method B for insertion, you can just walk over to it,
as
long as you give any guards a wide berth, don't let them get a good look at you,
and
don't run too much. Head around the back side.

If you don't have a uniform, you can use the sewers. There's an exit right in
front of
the church, but there's a soldier who looks right at it, so it's not
recommended. You
can, however, go the LONG way 'round. It's best to use method C for insertion if
you
plan to do this, because you're going to be pressed for time. If you use the
sewers to
go to the northern most exit, you can run around behind the backs of several
buildings
to get to the back of the church. Careful hiding and timing should get you by
any
soldiers along the way.

Once you're there, you'll probably need to cap the soldier out here with the
silenced
pistol. You CAN chloroform him if you use the dumpsters for cover, but there's
no
point; you'll be raising alarms later anyway. Pick the lock and head in the side
door.
At the top, whistling, is another soldier. Take him out with the silenced pistol
too.

Line up your shot. If you were fast, they hug twice at the start of the meeting,
and
you can sometimes kill both with one bullet. More likely, however, you'll have
to plug
one and try and get the other while he's running away. It's probably easiest to
shoot
the Mafia guy, as you have a better shot towards the General's car from here.
You can
also use either part of Method A as "insurance" in case you miss.

Either way, once you've pulled the trigger, the soldiers will be all over you.
There's
nothing for it at this point but running, I'm afraid. Ugly, but it works.


METHOD C-		snipe from the tower
Use the insertion plan of your choice, and enter the sewer. If you want, you can
take
the time to use either part of method A to plant a car bomb as "insurance",
since this
is a very difficult shot, and you're in the sewer anyway. It's preferable to
bomb the
General's car, rather than the Mafioso's, in the interests of time. When ready,
head
to the second most western exit.

Look around with the camera here before you stick your head out. You'll probably
have
to spin the camera around to find the tower. The guard here stops out on the
road,
then goes back and looks in on the tower, then turns with his back to the tower.
He stays there for a while, then walks around the other side for a little while.
When
he starts to walk away from the road, run out and stand against the wall of the
nearby
building.

Next, make your move when he starts to go around to the other side. The easiest
way
to dispose of this guy is to shoot him with the silenced pistol. It doesn't
matter
where the body winds up; Nobody sees it.

If you're trying to be stealthy, then run to the door the instant the guy starts
to
go around the far corner. Pick it, then turn and back up against the door and
the
dumpster's side. Hit the stealth button, and the soldier should walk right by
you, once
he does, open the door, and run inside the fence, and hide behind the tower.
He'll
eventually come back and look in on the tower, but if you're behind it, and
sneaking,
he won't see you. Then he turns his back on the door and stands there for a
while.
Open the door, and sneak up behind him, and knock him out. Depending on how fast
you
can snipe, you only need to give him about 3 bottles worth.

Head up the tower, and find the destroyed wall through which you can snipe the
targets.
You might want to save here, since sniping can be tricky.

If you planted a car bomb, then you only need to snipe one target here, and let
the
other blow himself up. If you snipe the General first, you can probably take the
other
target as he stops to get into his car.

Remember in the last mission, how the sniper rifle can kill two people with one
shot?
Well, you get an excellent chance to exploit that feature here. Watch the
targets in
the park. Eventually, they stop and talk. Aim at the general's torso. When they
go to
leave, the other guy walks in front of him, and they briefly overlap. Pull the
trigger.


METHOD D-		walkin' in the park one day
Use method B for insertion so you have a disguise, and carry the AK instead of
the
SVD. Now simply stroll into the park, giving all soldiers as wide a berth as
possible.
Find a secluded spot, and wait for the targets to stroll by. From behind, pull
out
your silenced 9mm and quickly drill them both in the head. If you're good enough
with
the pistol, you can drop 'em both before anyone gets to scream. Now simply walk
back
out.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
Use method A for insertion, then use method A to carbomb both targets. If you
use the
chloroform on the driver, instead of killing him, you get a Silent Assassin
rating.
The harder, but more satisfying way to get Silent Assassin is to use either
method A
or C for insertion, then method C to get the kill. As long as you use chloroform
on
the tower guard, you're good. I think you also need to get both targets with one
bullet, but I'm not 100% sure about that. You can also get Silent Assassin if
you mix
and match; snipe the Mafioso and carbomb the General.


THE EASY WAY
------------
For my money, carbombing both is the easiest way to do this mission, assuming
you
just shoot the driver. You might also want to try method D, but it can be a bit
unreliable.


LOOT
----
AK rifle-       On any soldier
SVD sniper-     By the crates at the beginning. Just take whichever one you
didn't take
                last time.





                            MISSION 4- TUBEWAY TORPEDO
=================================================================================
=====

An oddly named map where the biggest challenge is usually getting in and out.

Tips-
1. The soldiers will get suspicious if you run, or if you're carrying an odd
weapon.
2. Alcoves are your friends.
3. To arm the minibomb, all you have to do is drop it in the right place.
4. Them cameras, they gotta go.
5. Officers DON'T carry AK's. Only soldiers.
6. A lot of people write me about the bomb. They say it explodes when they go to
drop
it. All I can say is, do NOT arm it first, regardless of what the game says.
JUST drop
it. If that doesn't solve the problem, then I can't help you. Sorry, but I can
only
help with issues I've experienced first hand, and this hasn't happened to me. Do
not
write to me about this.


FIRST CHALLENGE-        Getting your kit
----------------------------------------
You start out in the sewers. Head up the ladder to the army depot. There'll be a
soldier nearby, but he won't see you exit the sewer. If you want a disguise,
this is
the easiest place to get it. Take this guy out and drag him back and to the
garage to
the side of the sewer exit you just came out of. Borrow his clothes, and grab
that
convenient AK while you're in here. If you're aiming for stealth, you can just
sneak
by him.

Check the map to see where the guy to the south is. If he's over to the west,
then
you're good. Head south, and turn to the right as you approach the raised area.
If the
first guard is still alive, you may need to sneak for part of this move, based
on the
timing. See the box up on the raised area? Stop behind that, and crouch (not
sneak,
crouch) so the guy up there won't see you. Hug the raised area as you crawl
westward.
When you're a good distance away from the guy on the raised area, you can head
over to
the equipment drop. Make sure to get ALL of it.

From here, you either want to sneak into the truck, or the sewers. If the first
guard
is still present, the sewers are really your only n option.


SECOND CHALLENGE-       Reaching headquarters
---------------------------------------------
METHOD A-		via truck
Assuming the first guard is dead or in the sewer, crouch-walk out next to the
little
booth, and when the guard there walks away, sneak forward and turn right into a
little
gap in the boxes. You are safe here. Watch the map, and when the guy on the
raised
area isn't watching, and the guy by the gate is near the manhole, enter the back
of
the truck.

The truck makes this part easy because the first two guys futz with the gate
long
enough for you to pop out of the truck and hide in the nearby group of boxes.
Wait for
the soldier at the back to turn away, and follow him. Duck behind the boxes and
slip
inside when he comes back out.


METHOD B-		sick of the sewers yet?
This is the easiest way to go if you're disguiseless. Watch the guard near the
gates,
and wait for him to walk into the little booth. As he's moving, crawl against
the side
of the booth, and move around as the opportunity presents to the side of the
booth
nearest the gates. Once he's facing the truck, sneak into the second sewer
entrance.

Run through the sewers, and emerge. Climb up the little scaffolding, and drop
into the
convenient hiding area. The idea here is to sneak past the guys near the
entrance to
the next set of boxes, although if you have the disguise, you can generally just
stroll
by with no worries. The next guy, however, is in such a narrow passage that he's
a
problem, disguise or no disguise.

When I did this, I had to wait a little behind the 2nd set of boxes for the rear
soldier to turn and walk back toward the door. Sneak down the narrow alley after
him.
As soon as he ducks inside, and the door closes, RUN and hide behind the green
box.

When your friend comes out again, wait til he gets down the ramp, before moving.


METHOD C-		yet more sewers
Here's a wrinkle I uncovered recently. You can reach the latter part of the
mission
via the part of the sewer in which you START! If you didn't have to bring the
bomb, you
could skip that entire first area. Sneaking back here is pretty easy, but only
if the
first guard is dead. Just follow my instructions for reaching the equipment in
reverse,
or follow my directions from reaching the truck FROM the equipment, and then go
on
past it. A uniform and AK are required for this to work.

Once back in the start, run to the only other exit you can reach. Two guards
stand very
near this exit, but if you wait, they'll walk away. Follow the one that walks
away to
the north, and then break right down the narrow path. Wait for the soldier at
the end
to turn away, and follow him. Duck behind the boxes and slip inside when he
comes back
out.


THIRD CHALLENGE-        Destroying things
------------------------------------------
Look at the inside map to check the position of the man inside. Ideally, he
should be
just heading up the stairs near the door. Head in, and walk behind him, giving
him
about 15 feet of space. Duck into the office at the top. There's a spare uniform
and
a Deagle with ammo here for you. If you don't need either, then you can ignore
this
room and head straight for the elevator. There's also an AK and some ammo in the
corner
of the main room, in case you don't have one. Once you're fully disguised, you
should
have no trouble using the elevator.

The main goal on this floor is to reach the next one down, but you've quite a
lot to do
here beforehand. The first impasse is a hallway full of cameras and a few
patrolling
soldiers. The cameras can pretty much pooch the mission for you if they see you
shoot a
soldier. They can see soldiers get shot with no worry, but don't let them see
you pull
the trigger. However, there's no real need to kill these guys. You can hide from
them
in the little alcoves. Use the map to determine which alcoves they stay farthest
from,
and use those. Halfway, you can go through the door to the control room if you
want,
and kill the officer here. However, you don't really need to, and you have to
drag him
a LONG way (specifically, to that room north of the server room) to avoid his
corpse's
discovery. The cleaner way is to just enter the control room from below and walk
through

Go around and enter the server room from the other side. Plug it in the green
lights
with a silenced 9mm pistol to disable it. See the room next to the sewer room
with the
(!) sign? That's your next stop, if you didn't already cack the officer and take
his
clothes. Take the spare officer's uniform here. Congratulations on your
promotion! Be
sure to drop your AK. The other officer didn't have one, and neither should you.

Your next obstacle is the last patrolling guard. It's easy enough to shoot him,
or hide
from him in the alcoves, but you can get rid of him without racking up another
kill!
Notice how the south end of his route is right where the bomb goes? Head into
the sewer
room, and drop the bomb as far from the wall as it will allow you, then go hide
in the
empty guard room to the west. Pull out the remote and watch the map. As soon as
he
stops in that room, push your fire button, and he goes boom along with the wall.
Everybody and their grandma runs to investigate, but you're nowhere nearby, so
let them
have their fun. They'll be long gone by the time you return with your friend. If
you
encounter a bug with the bomb, do not mail me about it. I have no idea what
causes it
or how to get around it.

Even if you don't kill that guard, do take the opportunity to blow up the wall
now, so
you can get on with the rest of the mission while everyone checks out your
handiwork.


FOURTH CHALLENGE-       Doing the deed and escaping
------
METHOD A-		paging doctor target
Drop the pager a little bit north of the north door to the interrogation room,
move
away a bit, behind a corner, and pull out the phone. Press fire to use it and
activate the pager. The general will come out and take the pager, and when he
goes back
into the room, he will fail to lock it. This is your invitation to head in and
dispatch
him.

It is possible, although tricky, to kill him with the fiber wire or knife in
this
manner. Stand aways to the left of the door when you drop the pager, and walk in
after
him. Apparently he's so busy talking that he's pretty oblivious. You can
actually walk
pretty close to him before having to switch to sneak mode. Better save your game
before
trying this, it can be tough.

If you followed my advice for the rest of the level, you won't have any problems
making
a clean get-away. Just make sure you hide from the last patrolling guard in the
empty
guardroom, if he's still alive, that is.


METHOD B-               through the mirror
Sneak past the patrolling guard, and pick the lock to the observation room. Head
inside, and you can shoot the general through the glass. Pretty damn cool, shame
it
takes two shots, unless you use the ballers. Better used a silenced gun, unless
you
LIKE having guards run in on you. Climb through the window, and walk up to the
hostage. Time to make your exit!

If you followed my advice for the rest of the level, you won't have any problems
making
a clean get-away. Just make sure you hide from the last patrolling guard in the
empty
guardroom, if he's still alive, that is.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
Well, I finally figured out to drop my stupid AK when I don the officer's
uniform,
which makes the last half of the mission MUCH easier. The cleanest way to do it
is to
sneak right to the spare uniform w/o killing the first guard, and then do the
general
with the knife and the pager. The only major wrinkle is that you DO have to
waste a
bullet on the server. That means you either can't kill any other guards, or you
have
to kill the general up close. For my money, not killing anyone is the easier of
those
two tasks, so spare the first guard so you can use a bullet on the General, and
you'll
still make SA.


THE EASY WAY
------------
Kill the first guard, and take the truck. Once inside, the easy way isn't much
different than the SA way. Using the pager and then shooting the General is the
easiest
way to kill him.


LOOT
----
AK rifle-       On any soldier, or lying around in several places
Deagle-         In the drawer in the office on the base ground floor
Combat knife-   On the general. Consider it a trophy.





                        MISSION 5- INVITATION TO A PARTY
=================================================================================
=====

This mission can seem overwhelming at first, because there's so much going on.
You
might want to spend a while just watching the various maps and seeing what
everybody
does.

Tips-
1. The guards get suspicious of you in the waiter's get-up, but as long as you
behave
in a waiterly fashion, they'll almost never sound an alarm on you.
2. Waiters are not allowed upstairs.
3. Guests are not allowed in the kitchen.
4. Your black suit is a great disguise here.
5. The bodyguard disguise is pretty useless, since it doesn't hold up to
scrutiny.
6. The actual safe can be any one of 4 safes in the corners of both floors.
7. The Spetznatz agent is labeled as a target, but you don't HAVE to kill him.
8. The ambassador is labeled as a VIP, but you don't HAVE to save him.
9. You're probably wondering if I'm going to mention the secret passage. I'm
not. If
you can find it, there's a spare tux and a W2000 sniper rifle out there.


FIRST CHALLENGE-        Insertion
---------------------------------
METHOD A-		disguise
When you walk up the pier, you'll see a waiter practically screaming, "sneak up
on me."
Since this mission's timing is so dependent on NPC movement, there's no way
you'll beat
it before he wakes up, so don't bother with the chloroform. Also, since killing
him
pooches your chances for Silent Assassin, you might as well just shoot the
little snot.

Once he's dead, take his key and clothes, and run over to the weapons drop. Grab
all
you need, and head through the door in the southeast corner of the wall. Just
make sure
there's no guards to nearby. Head in through the basement. The guards here will
get
suspicious when you walk near them, but they'll become unsuspicious as long as
you keep
acting in a waiterly manner. They shouldn't give you too much trouble.


METHOD B-		disguises are for pansies
Ignore the waiter. Run to the equipment, then run to the northeast door in the
outer
wall. Make sure to avoid the nearby guard, and pick the lock on the door. Check
the map
to see the position of the soldier inside the wall, and head in. If you were
quick, he
should be walking away from you.

Run to the basement door, and then hit sneak. Bring up the map, and switch to
the view
of the basement. Follow him along the side of the car, and then head into the
little
side room. Hug the northeast corner, until the guard starts to walk away again.
Head
around the corner, and into the first room. There's a spare waiter's uniform in
there.

If you're feeling especially daring, you can try to sneak upstairs without
changing,
but I have yet to be able to pull this off.


METHOD C-		the direct approach
Ignore the waiter, and run to the equipment cache. Grab what you need, then run
to the
nearby gate. Pick it, and head in. Although fast and easy, this route means you
can't
use the poison unless you kill a waiter inside, which is almost impossible to do
quietly. You could also sneak into the basement from either direction and claim
the
spare suit there. The bonus to this method is that nobody will get even remotely
suspicious (as long as you don't go into the basement) and you can run as much
as you
like.


METHOD D-		by invitation only
There is a guest wandering around the west side of the map with an invite in his
hand.
If you can dispatch/drug him, you can take his suit (which, as far as the guards
are
concerned, is the same as yours) and invitation. The invite will allow you to
walk in
the front gate, as long as you aren't carrying any guns. This presents the same
problems as method c, but is much more time consuming, so I'm not sure why
anyone
would bother.


SECOND CHALLENGE-       Killing the General
-------------------------------------------
METHOD A-		they gave you poison for a reason
Once disguised as a waiter, grab a glass of champagne from the kitchen. Pull it
out
(luckily, the champagne magically stays in the glass when it's dumped upsidedown
inside
47's shirt) and then draw the poison to spike the champagne. Simply walk into
the
ballroom and give it to the General. He's such an obliging fellow, he even finds
an
out-of-the-way place to die. What a sweetheart! In case you're wondering, he has
no
loot, so there's no need to visit his corpse after the fact.


METHOD B-		the old-fashioned way
The General occasionally wanders off down the hall for a dalliance with a maid.
Wait
in the hall for him and take him down with the silenced pistol. Drag him
somewhere out
of sight. This method, unfortunately, sometimes alarms the maid, and I'm sure
why it
does sometimes, and why it doesn't others. Alternatively, you can drug the maid
before
he gets there, and then kill him, or kill them both.


THIRD CHALLENGE-        Securing the briefcase
----------------------------------------------
METHOD A-		the early bird gets the worm
The ambassador walks to the safe twice. Once by himself, once escorted by the
Spetznatz
agent. This method involves intercepting him the first time he goes there, when
there's
no agent around to muck things up. If you get into the room adjacent to his
office, and
go in that way, you can take him out in the manner of your choosing. Once he's
down,
you can either take the suitcase (if he opened the safe for you) or take the
combination from his body and open it yourself. Alternatively, you can simply
shoot him
in the halls (Halls! I said HALLS!) before he reaches the safe room, and loot
the
combination.


METHOD B-		snuff the competition
The first time you hear that the ambassador has opened the safe, check the map
to see
where he is. Wait for the Spetznatz agent to "hold up" the ambassador, and get
to the
room adjacent to the room with the safe as fast as you can. Watch the map. Once
the
agent has his back turned to you, hit sneak and open the door. You can either
sneak up
on him, or shoot him in the back of the head. Wait until the safe door opens,
and then
take him down. A bonus here is that you can save the ambassador this way, but
the game
doesn't seem to care about that, really. If you do save him, don't worry. He
quietly
stays here for the rest of the mission.


METHOD C-		with enemies like this
After he kills the ambassador, the Spetznatz agent will leave via the front
door. Take
him out in the manner of your choosing. Has the potential to be really sloppy,
but
might be your only option if you got held up somewhere.


FOURTH CHALLENGE-       Getting out
-----------------------------------
This is, in many ways, the hardest part of the mission. The guards will fire on
you
if they see a waiter walking off with the General's suitcase, so you need
another
disguise, but what? Ironically, the disguise you need is the black suit you came
in
with. If you're still wearing it, then just grab the suitcase and stroll out the
front
door.

If not, this is going to get a bit tricky. If your suit is all the way back by
the
first waiter, then your options are to try to sneak all the way out through the
basement, (which I've never gotten to work) steal a suit from another guest,
(which
means an unnecessary kill) or shoot your way out. Good luck!

If your suit is in the basement, then there's still hope for a stealthy exit.
Leave the
suitcase in a quiet room somewhere, and go into the basement. Walk to the room
with your
suit, and put it on. Sneaking back upstairs is the hard part. I'd advise
sneaking to
the pantry, then watching the map, especially the two guys out by the stairs.
When the
time is right, sneak past them, reclaim your suitcase, and head on out.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
This is a very easy mission in which to get Silent Assassin, as long as you can
handle
the Fourth Challenge without setting off any alarms, and there are multiple
ways. I
recommend using method B for insertion, poisoning the General, and killing the
agent
with the wire once the safe is open. It can be done faster if you method C for
insertion, drug the ambassador as he goes to open the safe the first time, shoot
the
General (if you're lucky regarding the maid) and then just stroll out. You can
also use
the poison on the General, and then wait outside for the agent, and then shoot
him.
However, these last two routines are sorta unsatisfying, and will give a very
low
stealth score.


THE EASY WAY
------------
The easiest way is to use method C for insertion, method A to get the briefcase,
and
then simply killing both the maid and the General in their little tryst room.


LOOT
----
9mm pistol-     On some guards, but you really should have one by now, eh?
.54 pistol-     On the Spetznatz agent. Didn't I tell you not to bother in
mission 2?
SMG-            On most guards. If you want one without causing a fuss, there's
one in
                a locker in the basement room that initially starts with 3
guards in
                it. They empty out later in the game, so just walk in as the
waiter and
                take it.





                           MISSION 6- TRACKING HAYAMOTO
=================================================================================
=====

Disguises are largely useless, so you can either do it with the fish (just keep
reading
it'll make sense eventually) or you can have a big gun fight with pretty much
everybody
in the place. I won't be covering the latter option, since it's not, ya know,
hard.

Tips-
1. Guard disguises are 100% useless.
2. The surface you're walking on affect how loud you are. Grass is quiet. Gravel
is
noisy.
3. Fish.
4. I hope you like sneaking. And waiting.
5. The guards here all walk REALLY slow, and look around quite a bit while they
patrol.


FIRST CHALLENGE-        Journey to the fish
-------------------------------------------
METHOD A-		around the back
It starts out easy enough. You can practically run to the second stone unseen.
Wait
there for the guy at the front door to turn away, and then you can usually run
right
into the garage with impunity.

Watch the outside map, and when the guard in front of the garage walks away, run
out
the far garage door and around the corner. Here you will see a small yard with a
big
rock and a guard patrolling around it. Wait til he's on the opposite side of the
rock,
and run up to it. Keep the rock between you, and when the opportunity presents
itself,
sneak into the bush to the north of the rock. Watch and wait. Oh, and save.

A guard from inside will come out and talk to the patroller. You'll also be able
to
see the cook on his smoke break. When the cook turns to go, start sneaking
around to
the back of the house where he was. As long as you sneak, and stay up against
the wall,
you should be fine. Head through the open gate and bring up your inside map.
Wait some
more.

When the cook comes out to smoke again, save. You have to be quick in this part.
Sneak
up behind the cook and drug him. Notice how he's considered an innocent despite
the
fact he acts exactly like a guard? This means we have to drug the bastard if we
don't
want to get penalized. Drag him quickly through the gate to hide him from the
rock-
orbiting patroller.

Check the map to see where the hallway guards are. If you were fast, they should
all be
out of your way. Run in, and run to the northeast room with a (!) sign. Cut off
the
piece of fish, then run back to the kitchen, and plant the fish and the
transmitter in
the sushi. Run back to the fish room. If you made it safely, you'll probably
want to
save again.

Watch the map and wait (sensing a theme?) When the hallway guard leaves to go
outside,
run out the back door, and flatten yourself against the north fence. Sneak to
the left,
and you should be able to move into the yard unseen. Keep edging left, and, when
the
hallway guard goes back inside, you should be able to run around behind the rock
and to
the side of the garage undetected. Yeah, I didn't expect that to work either.

You can kill one guard and still achieve SA on this mission, since you used the
fish on
the target. If you want to make your exit a little easier, and want an SMG,
shoot the
guy in front of the garage with the silenced pistol when he's way over in the
corner.
Nobody will find his body. Duck into the garage and save.


METHOD B-		yeh yeh, I know
Many people wrote in to tell me about the spare servant costume. It DOES fool
the
guards, at least about as much as the usual disguises. I had written it off as
useless,
because the cook and the Geisha see right through it, and that was my first
experience
with it. I figured EVERYBODY saw through it, but apparently not.

Start out the same as method A. Run to the second stone when it's clear, then
run into
the garage when that's clear. Once inside, go over to the car and honk the horn,
then
hide behind the trash can to the side of the door. A guard will come out to
investigate
and stand with his back to you. Dispose of him in the manner of your choosing. I
would
not recommend chloroform unless you REALLY know the rest of the map well and are
sure
you can get out before he wakes up. Don't bother taking his clothes.

Head through the door into the house. Don't worry, the enemies can't see well
enough
through the rice paper screens to realize you're an intruder. If the guy in the
front
hall is nearby, sneak, otherwise, walk, through the doorway on the right into
the next
room. From here, another door goes out to a room just like the one you were in.
Head
there. Wait til the patroller stops by the front door, and sneak out of the
sliding
door, and into the room to the west. This part is made tricky by the geisha
girl's
movement. She walks RIGHT through here, so you better be sure you can either do
this
map really fast, or wait around in the garage until after she serves the first
sushi
platter.

Check your map, and observe the two guys who patrol the hallway to the north of
your
current position. When the coast is clear, sneak into the westernmost of the two
rooms
with the (!) sign. Put on the spare cook's outfit. This will work as a decent
disguise
against the guard, but NOT against the cook or geisha. If the cook is still
outside
smoking, and the hallway is clear, run to the other (!) room, and cut a piece of
fish.
Run BACK to the kitchen. Plant the fish and transmitter in the sushi platter. If
you
were fast enough, the leftmost one should still be there.

If you did this as quickly as I did, the geisha should just now be leaving the
meeting
room on her way here. Remember, she can see through your disguise. The easiest
way to
get past her, without having to hide in the fish room for ages, is to hide next
to the
shelves in the first room off the hallway on your way back. She'll walk right
past you.

Once she does, you should have little trouble getting out.


SECOND CHALLENGE-       Escape from the fish
--------------------------------------------
Once safely inside the garage, watch the outside map. When the patroller by the
front
door is gone, head out and hide in the bush across from the second rock. The
patroller
who goes past the garage should be right here. Use the bush to hide from him til
he
walks away. By now, the front door guard is probably back, so reposition
yourself so he
can't see you through the bush. On my machine, I can see all the way to the end
of the
map with no fog. If you can't, then you'll have to watch the map. When both the
door
guard and the two guys by the exit have turned away, run and hide behind the
first rock
where you started the mission. Now you simply have to wait for those two guys to
turn
away. By now, you should have gotten the message that the mission objectives
have been
met, so you can leave. If for some reason the target doesn't die, or eat the
trans-
mitter, than I can't help you. It works every time for me.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
Using method A, as long as you drugged the cook, rather than killed him, all
will be
well. This mission isn't so much hard as it is trying on the patience. Takes a
fair
bit of trial and error, but it can be done. Method B is a bit less nerve-
wracking, but
you wind up with an unnecessary kill in the garage, unless you are REALLY fast.


THE EASY WAY
------------
Method B is easier, especially if you shoot any irritants with the silenced
pistol.
Most of the guards outside are far enough apart that you can snuff them and just
leave
them lying and they won't be discovered, but that doesn't really simplify
matters much.


LOOT
----
9mm pistol-     On some guards, the fat guy and the cook. I'm going to stop
listing
                these now. There's no excuse not to have one already.
SMG-            On most guards, and lying around in the room next to the room
with the
                spare cook's uniform.





                               MISSION 7- HIDDEN VALLEY
=================================================================================
=====

I hate this mission. Whoever designed these should be shot. It's not that it's
too
hard. It's not that it's boring. It's not that it's riddled with bugs. It's not
the
uncharacteristically futuristic character design. It's the stupid idea that
these guys
can see through completely concealing disguises at 50 feet through heavy snow.
That's
just idiotic. I knew there had to be a Columbia in this game somewhere, and here
it is.

Tips-
1. Disguises aren't quite as useless as before. The keep the snipers off you.
2. The guards here all walk REALLY slow, and look around quite a bit while they
patrol.
3. This mission sucks.

Bugs-
I'm sure there's bugs on other missions, but they don't completely ruin the game
play
quite as much as they do on this mission.

1. Sometimes the trucks run over the guards in the tunnel. No, really. Stop
laughing!
I'm being serious here! You'll know it's happened if you get a message
like, "guards
are alerted!" instead of, "nearby guards are alerted!" or if they find a body
and you
haven't killed anyone. Oh, guess what? Those kills count against you. Fun, eh?

2. When a guard shouts for you to stop, he won't seem to notice if you don't,
and will
walk to where you were and check your ID, no matter how far away you are. He
will then
figure out you're a round eye, even if your round eyes are 50 feet away and
around a
corner. If you get away from a guard while this is going on, it's only counted
as a
"close call" rather than an alert. They're so stuck in this routine, you can
even wait
til they walk up to you, walk around behind 'em and drug 'em. You know it's a
well
built level when exploiting bugs is the only way to beat it.


FIRST CHALLENGE-        Getting a disguise
------------------------------------------
Frankly, I wish there was an invisibility cheat. I'd just tell you to use it and
be
done with this piece of crap before it ruins your impression of the game.

In the absence of one, however, run over to the equipment cache. You'll notice a
guard here. If you start sneaking from behind the wall the instant he turns
around,
you can overtake him, and wire/drug/knife him. Take his clothes, but leave his
gun.

Grab the crossbow, nightvision, and bolts.

Now, check out the map of the tunnel. See in the middle, where there's a bunch
of guys
hanging around in the road? That's a checkpoint. If you're in there when the
truck goes
by, you'll be caught in the search, however, past that checkpoint, the truck is
a free
ride to the end of the level. See the ladder from the surface? Reaching that is
your
goal. On the surface map, that ladder is at the end of the small valley to the
far
south, with one guard at the entrance of the valley.


SECOND CHALLENGE-       Part one
--------------------------------
METHOD A-		above ground
Run toward the valley, ignoring the first, closest ladder. It doesn't really go
anywhere useful. Ahead, you should see 3 ninjas a-ways off to the right, and one
patrolling nearby to the left. Stay in the trees as long as you can, and then
when the
guy to the left has his back to you, bolt for the next ladder area. He'll
probably see
you and tell you to stop, but if you're quick, you'll be behind the next
structure
before it escalates into a full scale alarm.

I haven't been able to get around that guy without either setting him off or
shooting.


METHOD B-		trucking
Run back to the beginning, and stick to the trees to avoid being spotted. Climb
in the
back of the truck when it comes up. Stay hidden in the back of the truck until
the
stop right before the checkpoint, then hop out and hide behind a pillar. Nearby
is a
ladder up to the surface with one guard. Sneak into the ladder area. If you're
lucky,
you can follow the guard until you catch up with him and drug him. Shooting him
works
fine too. Head up the ladder. This should put you at the entrance to the little
valley.


THIRD CHALLENGE-        Part two
--------------------------------
As long as you have a disguise, the snipers won't bother you here, so all you
have to
worry about is the guard in the entrance to the valley. If you keep the trees
between
you and him, its actually pretty easy to get around him undetected. Shooting him
works
too. Run to the end of the valley, and start to head down the ladder. Check the
map to
make sure the guy below isn't in the room you're about to drop into, and head
down.

The guard near this ladder is your last real obstacle. Follow him and drug him,
or
just sneak out into the tunnel. Shooting him works too.

Once here, watch out for the truck, and climb into the back of the one headed
towards
the end of the level. Stay hidden behind the boxes, and the truck will
eventually take
you all the way out the other end. Bail out of the truck, and run to the exit.
Do a
little happy dance.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
You're allowed 1 kill, 1 shot, 1 close-call, and-or 1 alert. How you spend them
is up
to you. It can be done easily enough. My personal best involved drugging the
first guy,
(for the costume) riding the truck for a while, drugging the guy by the 2nd
ladder,
sneaking past the guy in the valley, and sneaking past the guy by the other
ladder. No
kills. No alerts or close-calls. Of course, this is dependant on whether or not
any of
the ninjas get hit by trucks. *eyeroll* Your biggest problem getting SA (aside
from the
bugs) is probably keeping down the number of close-calls rather than having to
kill too
many people.


THE EASY WAY
------------
Get your disguise and crossbow-snipe the 4 ninjas between you and the little
southern
valley. Once there, go down the far ladder and take out the guard there with the
silenced pistol, then ride the truck out.

LOOT
----
Crossbow-       Better take it. It's helpful on the next missions.
SMG-SD6-        A cool weapon, but unfortunately made less useful but the size
of the
                sound suppresser, which makes it act as a rifle. IE it can't be
hidden
                and you can only carry one. Wait til later to take one.
Custom W2000-   A great rifle to be sure. Sometimes you can make the snipers
drop it,
                if you're lucky. However, the crossbow is useful next level.
Take it
                instead. You can get a rifle later.





                           MISSION 8- AT THE GATES
=================================================================================
=====

More psychic ninjas. This map is still pretty fun though, with plenty of nerve-
wracking
stealth action. Alternatively, you can do very well on this map just using the
crossbow
to clear a path.

Tips-
1. Disguises keep the snipers off you.
2. Trees make you almost invisible.
3. The guards outside make really broad, long, slow patrols.
4. The rafter-dwelling ninjas don't seem to be as psychic as their friends.


FIRST CHALLENGE-        Getting there is half the fun
--------
The ninjas on this level are just as psychic as before, but luckily, they are
much more
spread out. In fact, using the trees, it's quite easy to move around this level
with
relative impunity. The snipers, however, will shoot you if you don't get a
disguise.
What? You thought you had a disguise when you walked in here? No, no. You
must've been
thinking of someone else.

Looking out from the start, you'll see two guys around the road in front of you,
and
one guy on the ledge far away on the right. He's your walking clothes pole. It's
easy
enough to snipe him with the crossbow, but he's also fairly easy to drug, if
you're
patient.

Run up to the right, and go up on the ledge. Run through the trees toward the
soldier.
When you get near him, if you ran right from the start of the level, you should
reach
a pair of trees right next to each other. Keep these between you and him, and
wait for
him to start walking back to the west. Go around the trees that you're hiding
behind,
so you come at him from behind. Start sneaking. He walks slow enough, that you
can
catch up on him before he reaches the other end of his route. Drug him, take his
clothes, and stash his body in the trees. You don't need to drag it very far.

Now the snipers will ignore you, but you still have to worry about the other
ninjas.
Run along the rest of the ledge, and hop down at the end of it. If you stick to
the
trees when possible, and make sure to stay as far as possible from all the
guards, you
should be able to make it with no problem. You're heading for the area on the
right of
the castle where one of the security systems is located.


SECOND CHALLENGE-       The first security console
-----
METHOD A-		kaboom
Move up the ledge by the side of the castle, and move so you can just see the
guard and
the generator. Bring up your crossbow and zooooooooom in. You're aiming for the
roundish, yellowish part in the middle. Shoot it, and the thing will blow sky
high,
taking the guard with it. Doesn't count as a kill either!


METHOD B-		stealth
Approach the guard and use the big rocks for cover. Be careful, because you can
walk up
on them sometimes and blow your cover. Start in on the guard once he turns to
the north
and sneak up behind him. You should have just enough time to get up behind him
and drug
him. Open the door on the fence, and go inside. On the back of the unit, facing
the
wall, is a control panel where you can turn it off.

If you're having trouble stealthing him, you could abuse a bug. Hey, they abuse
YOU,
right? Pull out your anesthetic, and make sure it's ready. Run up to the guy.
While
he's checking your ID, simply walk behind him and smother him.


THIRD CHALLENGE-        And then there were two
-----------------------------------------------
Head around to near the front door. This part gets tricky, because the map is
screwy.
One sniper in the upper chamber shows up on the valley map, while the other one,
not 3
feet away in the same room, shows up on the castle map. There's a patroller who
walks
back and forth through the front door area. Wait until he's heading to the left,
and
sneak into the anteroom behind him, turning right. Once the guard's door closes,
you
can start walking, but do NOT run. If you run, one of the snipers above you will
turn
and see you. And that will be bad.

Oh, in case you haven't noticed, this castle has a lot of secret doors in these
wooden paneled areas. Such is the case on either side of the entrance. Once you
go
through the door, head up the stairs, and walk over to the door. You might want
to back
up the stairs, so you can see what goes wrong, if anything.

Once outside, and the door is closed, run over to the security panel on the
right, and
shut it off. Hide behind the rock so that the patrolling guard doesn't see you
when he
comes out.

If you drugged the very first guard, he's probably waking up about now. But
don't
worry; He won't cause any problems.

Now's probably your best chance to try and get a custom rifle. Get behind the
big rock
so that the wanderer who comes in here won't see you. Aim at the sniper above
and to
the right of the panel you just shut down. I wish I had more useful advice for
you on
this besides, "get lucky" but that's really all there is to it. Try to shoot him
when
the gun is somewhat out the window, and hope it bounces down to you.


FOURTH CHALLENGE-       Final alarm panel
-----------------------------------------
METHOD A- 		stealth
Run up the ramp in the area with the 2nd console. Open the door at the top, and
walk
through. Don't worry about the rafter ninjas. They won't bug you. Bring up the
valley
map so you can watch the guy outside. See how he goes in a loop? Follow him,
walking,
from a safe distance, around to the far door back into the same hallway (on the
other
side of the rafter ninjas. Shut down the console.

Give the map a quick check for safety, then head out the near door, around the
corner,
and you can run to the exit.


METHOD B-		let's not and say we did
Wait for the guy who patrols past the front door to poke his nose back into this
area.
When he leaves, follow him (at a walk, and from a safe distance) back down the
stairs,
then turn left and head back outside. No, really.

Run all the way back around to the 1st generator, then keep going north past it.
At
the northeast corner of the wall, you'll spy another ninja patrolling alone.
Simply
wait til his back is turned, and run west, hugging the northern wall. You will
see a
door. Head through it. You will see a security laser fence blocking your path.
Open up
the secret panel in the wall to the right, and head through. Go out the far
exit. From
here you can run to the end of the mission without ever turning off the third
panel.

No, really.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
SA is easy enough here, as long as you resist the urge to run while inside, and
the
urge to snipe everybody with your crossbow. Since the exploitable ID bug works
on the
guy by the generator, but not the first guy, the easiest way is probably to
snipe the
first ninja to obtain a costume. Make sure you get him with a single shot to the
head!
Once you reach the generator, exploit the ID bug as described in Challenge 2,
method B
to drug him, then manually turn off the machine, instead of shooting it. As for
the
Fourth challenge, method B is a little easier, but it takes longer. Of course,
you
SHOULD do it without killing ANYBODY. If you do, you can kill the sniper I
mention and
get away with a custom rifle while still maintaining SA status.


THE EASY WAY
------------
Snipe the first guy for a disguise, and then run toward the generator. You could
snipe
more guys, but there's no point. Blow up the generator with the crossbow, then
go to
the front door. When the patroller goes past, drill him with your SD 9mm, and
drag his
body into one of the alcoves. Follow the third challenge, then method B to skip
the
fourth one. Use the crossbow to gun down any potentional problems from a
distance. The
easiest place to get the custom rifle is the guy right at the end. Bring a SD6
and
spray him lightly. Spray him again to finish him once he's aiming at you, and
the rifle
will obligingly fall out the window.


LOOT
----
SMG-SD6-        A cool weapon, but unfortunately made less useful but the size
of the
                sound suppresser, which makes it act as a rifle. IE it can't be
hidden
                and you can only carry one.
Custom W2000-   A great rifle to be sure. It's easy enough to make a sniper drop
one.
                Just shoot them once in the chest so they're aiming at you, then
                kill them. Read the Third Challenge for my advice on getting
this AND
                Silent Assassin in the same go.





                             MISSION 9- SHOGUN SHOWDOWN
=================================================================================
=====

Wow. Big, complicated map. There's a ton of ways to do this. Once you understand
the
basics of how to get around and how the costumes work, you shouldn't have much
trouble
beating this mission.

Tips-
1. The rafter-dwelling ninjas don't seem to be as psychic as their friends.
2. If someone starts to follow you, you can usually lose them by changing floors
and/or
going around a corner.
3. Disguises work here, but you need to follow the usual rules for blending in.
4. The map of the courtyard and wings is that same area. Neither map shows all
the guys
in the area. Don't be fooled into thinking an area is bereft of guards by only
look-
ing at one map.
5. The floor of the first floor will squeak unless you walk along the beams.
6. For no adequately explained reason, the Target on this mission counts as an
enemy
for the purposes of the mission rating.
7. Generally, you can get away with annoying a few guards. The problem is, the
more
times you make the SAME guards suspicious, the more likely they are to open
fire. This
is the whole key to the mission. People have trouble when trying to get out, but
they
don't realize it's because of things they did going in.


FIRST CHALLENGE-        Blending in
-----------------------------------
METHOD A-		the shirt off his back
Head through the secret passage to the right, and up the stairs. When the
patroller in
the next room has his back turned, creep out of the doorway and sneak up behind
the
nearest pillar, keeping it between you and him. When he next turns his back,
shoot him
in the head with your silenced 9mm. Take his clothes and drag his body behind
some
nearby boxes, being careful not to squeak. You will now be able to walk by most
guards
with relative ease.

Head down the stairs, then through the secret passage. Grab the keycard. Walk
toward
the room with the (!) on it. Sneak through the room where the two ninjas are
playing a
game, or praying, or admiring the table, or whatever it is they're doing.
Disable the
lasers with your new keycard, and grab the bomb, remote, and as much ammo as you
want.
Sneak back out.


METHOD B-		ninja laundry
Head through the secret passage to the right, and up the stairs. When the
patroller in
the next room has his back turned, creep out of the doorway and sneak along the
wall.
Hide behind boxes or pillars when he turns around, and head down the stairs as
soon as
possible. Be careful not to squeak!

Walk down the stairs, the turn around and go through the secret panel. Watch the
map to
make sure nobody is the next room, then step in, and grab the keycard. Continue
in the
same direction, and, at the end of the hall, hug the left wall and sneak.
There's a
patroller that goes around the next part in a circle. Sneaking, you can follow
him.
Err to the outside of the loop, so that he doesn't see you out of the corner of
his eye
when he turns a corner. Doing this, you can follow him to the right hand door to
the
next hall, without ever passing near the rafter ninja.

In the next hall, do the exact same trick, and you'll be in the hall with three
small
rooms on the side. Sneak along to the end, and save in front of the door. When
ready,
open it, and grab the spare clothes. Sometimes, the ninjas in here see you, and
some-
times they don't, hence the save. When dressed, sneak back out.

Head back down the hall to the earlier door. Sneak through the room where the
two
ninjas are playing a game, or praying, or admiring the table, or whatever it is
they're
doing. Disable the lasers with your new keycard, and grab the bomb, remote, and
as much
ammo as you want. Be sure to grab a SMG since you don't have one yet. Sneak back
out.


METHOD C-		a prayer for pants
If you follow method B until the keycard, you can ambush and drug one of the
guards who
come in to pray in the shrine. However, in my experience, that costume doesn't
work as
well as the black outfit.


SECOND CHALLENGE-       The guidance system
-------------------------------------------
Pay attention! This part is key. Don't skip it just because you know how to get
the
system. Head back around the halls, past the shrine, through the passage and up
to the
squeaky room.

See tip 7 for this mission? The two guys past that laser fence are key to doing
this
mission stealthily. You have to go past them two or three total times, and if
you make
them too suspicious this FIRST time, they'll shoot at you every time when you're
trying to escape. If the Suspici-O-Meter gets any wider than a third, load and
do it
over,  especially if you plan to kill Hayamoto with the bomb, or try to get you-
know-
who out.

Head up the stairs onto the first floor. Stick to the beams, walk near the boxes
in
the middle of the room. Now, run over to the left, in the direction of the
stairs.
The squeaks will bring out the two guys by the door, who will walk over to the
middle
of the room. Using the beams, walk over, deactivate the lasers, and drop down
the
stairs to the basement. Once in the basement, if you managed to do that without
them
seeing you at all, you're good. If they did, and the suspicion meter got larger
than a
sliver, you probably want to do it again. Getting this part is tricky, but the
idea is
to make them investigate a squeak without coming too near you.

Once down, go through the door across the way, down to the museum. Turn off the
lasers
and take the .22 SD pistol and guidance system. Leave the way you came in.
Calmly walk
past the guards at the laser fence up to the 2nd floor. If either of them
follows you
even partway up the stairs, you aroused too much suspicion on your last pass,
and they
WILL sound alarms the next time they see you. I'll repeat it; If either of those
guys
follows you up the stairs at ALL, they WILL sound alarms if they see you again.


THIRD CHALLENGE-        Hayamoto must die
-----------------------------------------
METHOD A-		up close and personal
Go on up through the rather bland 2nd floor to the 3rd floor. Keep going up
without
doing anything on floor 3. Check the map to make sure you won't run into the
concubine,
and head up to the 4th floor. Duck behind the screen in the concubine's room
(it's the
one through which you access Lei Ling) and wait for her. When she turns around,
move
out and chloroform her. Stealth isn't really an issue, since it's pretty much a
given
that she'll see you, but she doesn't run fast, and has no weapon, so you can
just chase
her down and grab her before she even gets to the door. Take her card, and tuck
her
back into her room, if she got out.

Head up the stairs on this side. Turn off the laser and move in a bit, then run
back
out, run around in the stairs, etc. Your goal is to get the guy in that room
with the
gun (the guys with the swords don't check your ID) to move toward you. When he's
gone
about 3 steps, run down two sets of stairs to the third floor (with the security
system.) Run through here, and back up to the fourth floor. Don't worry, those
guys
on floor three won't cause problems for you. Run partway up the stairs to the
fifth
floor, then walk. Turn off the laser. The guy with the gun should be all the way
over
by the other door. With him distracted, you should have no trouble getting up to
the
top floor.

If Hayamoto is at his table, sneak and hang out on the stairs until he goes to
the
window. Sneak up behind him. If you haven't shot anyone yet, you can drill him
with
the silenced 9mm, or you can wire him. Be aware that as soon as you do this, the
ninjas
on the lofts will try to kill you. Grab Hayamoto's katana (if you want it) and
hop out
the window. Keep moving, and the idiot ninjas will stay on the 6th floor without
alerting anybody else. Follow the path along the ledges, and you can drop down
right in
front of the exit. Stroll out between the last few guards.


METHOD B-		kaboom
In order to use this method, you must plant the bomb on the chopper BEFORE you
go to
the basement and museum. Just walk up to it and select "PLANT BOMB" from the
menu. The
odds are, someone will get suspicious, but not enough to cause any problems.

Go on up to the 3rd floor. There's a patroller here who walks in a U shape. Wait
til
he's over by the sleeping ninjas, and make your way to the security console.
Push the
big, tempting button, and run back down to the third floor. Once here, go around
to the
right hand side of the area, and walk up to the corner so you can see the stairs
down,
but nobody can see you. Wait just a bit to see if anyone comes running up, and
then
stroll down the stairs. Turn off the lasers, and (sticking to the beams) make
your way
to the passage through which you entered. Go to the end of it, but not through
the
door. If you where sufficiently stealthy the last two times you passed these
guys, you
should be fine. Watch the map and track Hayamoto to the museum, and then up
again to
the courtyard. You'll be automatically kicked out of map view when he boards it.

Count about 10 or 12 seconds, and then detonate the bomb. As long as it's IN the
chopper, and not just NEAR it, you'll be fine. If you detonate it too early, the
blast
will kill several guards, and several other guards will find their corpses, and
the
alerts will pile up, hurting your rating.


METHOD C-		kaboom v2
Follow method b for pretty much everything, but, when you steal the guidance
system,
back up a step and drop the bomb. When Hayamoto goes in here to get the system
when he
flees, nobody accompanies him, and nobody thinks to go down and look after the
bomb
goes off. Just watch him on the map, and when he gets near enough, pop the bomb.
This
eliminates the problems in method b of alarms going off after he's dead. Stroll
out at
your leisure.


METHOD D-		kaboom v3
Follow method a, and bring the bomb with you. Drop it anywhere in Hayamoto's
room, and
then get back to the safe area of your choice. Detonate the bomb. The problem
with this
plan is that it will inevitably cause a lot of alerts, as all the guards take
turns
discovering Hayamoto's corpse, and the corpses of all the ninjas who died. If
you hide
behind a pillar til he sits at the table, you can use the window to exit, then
detonate
the bomb from outside. Otherwise, you can use the usual exit.


METHOD E-		bonk and kaboom
I included this just because it's fun. Plant the bomb on the chopper ala method
B, and
follow method A to reach Hayamoto. Creep up behind him and... BONK him on the
head with
the butt of your SD6. No, really. Now, quickly get past him and climb out the
window.
Head down a bit so you can JUST see the helicopter. Since you attacked him,
he'll run
straight to the chopper, and quite quickly too. Follow method b's advice re the
bomb,
and method a for exiting.

The perk here, is that, not only do you get to SEE the helicopter explode, but
you get
to revel in the silliness that you trekked through mountainous tundra, dodged
snipers
and dozens of highly trained ninjas, defeated the best security system money
could
buy, and infiltrated a massive ancient fortress... all to bonk a guy on the
head.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
I can't stress tip 7 enough. It's not enough to just escape from suspicious
guards and
let the meter go back down; When you go past those guards AGAIN, they'll open
fire. The
other wrinkle is that Hayamoto counts as an enemy, which none of the other
targets do.
This means if you kill your usual 1 allowable guard, you can NOT kill or harm
Hayamoto
directly. You HAVE to use the bomb. If you follow method b for getting a
disguise, then
you won't have killed anyone, and are free to dispose of him manually. The other
thing
that trips people up is alerts. If you wait til the helicopter gets some
altitude, as
described in method b, nobody will find Hayamoto's body, and nobody will be
killed in
the blast, so the alerts won't stack up and rob you of a good rating. Method c
is the
easiest way I've found to kill Hayamoto using the bomb, but if you're having a
rough
time with the sneaking, method a is the easiest route to SA, assuming you didn't
kill
anyone to get a disguise.


THE EASY WAY
-----------
Kill the first available ninja to get a disguise, then use method A to kill
Hayamoto.
After setting off the alarm, run and hide on the pointless 3rd floor. Stealth is
generally easier than violence on this level, but the easiest way out is
probably just
to grab your SD6 and run and spray after blowing up the chopper.


LOOT
----
SMG-SD6-        On pretty much every guard.
Katana-         On rafter ninjas, and Hayamoto. Also in the museum, and center
of the
                second floor.
.22 SD pistol-  In the museum.
Deagle-         On the guards in the 3rd floor.





                             MISSION 10- BASEMENT KILLING
=================================================================================
=====

This is one of my favorite maps, since there's a couple ways to accomplish it,
and
they're all fun. Just try to resist the urge to go on a massive killing spree at
the
start. Resist it! Oh, okay, go on a spree. But then start over and do it
properly.

Tips-
1. A guard costume will get you past the metal detectors, but not downstairs.
2. A basement guard's uniform (the guys who show up as enemies rather than cops)
will
get you into the basement, but how to get one quietly without going into the
basement
is a bit of mystery.
3. The suits on the businessmen aren't any better disguises than your suit.
4. Don't bother bringing any guns. Chloroform will be useful though.
5. You HAVE to shoot out the security computer. This means you can't shoot
anything
else if you want a Silent Assassin rating.
6. There's two small lockers in the basement that contain 9mm pistols, in case
you're
down there and you forgot your pistol. One of these lockers is between the
elevator out
of the level, and the door to the sub-basement. It can be picked. A lot of
people get
confused and think they're picking the sub-basement door or the elevator door.
7. Although you can use that gun to destroy the computer, you probably want to
have
the silenced pistol with you for the next two missions.
8. For no adequately explained reason, the .22 passes through metal detectors.
It can
make the pizza method a little easier, but without the bomb to distract the
guards,
you still either have to shoot them, or shoot the security computer in front of
them,
so if you ask me, the .22 doesn't really help at all here.



FIRST CHALLENGE-        Getting your stuff and promptly throwing it away
---------------------------
Watch the map. Two guards patrol near the locker room; One goes from the lobby
to the
hallway, and one goes back and forth between the target locker room and another
one.
Keep those sweat socks safe! Wait til the first guard is in the lobby, and the
second
is in the room across the hall from the locker room with the gear. Run into the
locker
room with your gear, and hide in the shower. The guard will just assume you're
another
guard taking a shower, and won't look in. If you want to try a guard disguise,
you can
sneak out and snuff or drug this guy pretty easily from the shower, but there's
no real
point.

Once he leaves, grab your stuff from the locker, and run out to the hall. If you
run
into the other guard, just walk normally, and he should just tell you to leave.

Watch the guards by the laundry. When the one who goes into the lobby is far
away, and
the one in the actual laundry area is staring down the chute, run into the hall,
and go
into sneak mode at the far end of the hall, past the door. Wait for the guard to
come
out (sometimes he doesn't even open the door) and sneak into the chute room.
Quickly
dump whatever you came to dump (see the next challenge) down the chute, then run
out to
the lobby. If you were fast enough, you should get out to the lobby before
either
patrolling guard comes back into the hall.


SECOND CHALLENGE-       Everything else
---------------------------------------
METHOD A-		ax-wielding mayhem
This is quite possibly the most fun Silent Assassin rating you'll ever get.

When in the laundry, dump the bomb down the chute. Keep your gun.

Time is of the essence with this trick. Make sure you know the basement layout
before
trying it, and when I tell you to RUN, that means RUN. You remember how annoying
it was
when you had to walk in all those other levels? Well, now you have to RUN.

RUN over to the fire department (around the front, not through the metal
detectors) and
watch the firemen run out. Once they're all gone (check the map) run IN to their
locker
room and grab the spare uniform, and an ax. RUN out to the lobby, through the
metal
detectors, and down the stairs. The metal detectors will go off, but it's okay,
because
you're a fireman with a big metal ax and hat.

RUN to the room with the security computer, whip out your silenced pistol, and
shoot
it. You'd think you could disable it with that hefty ax, but apparently not.
Grab your
ax and RUN down the stairs to the sub-basement.

As dramatically appropriate as it might be to sneak through this room and
surprise
your target, you don't have time for that. RUN at the fat bastard. He'll try to
sound
the alarm, but there's nobody around to be alarmed, since they're all upstairs.
Chase
him and give him a good solid WHACK with the ax.

Run BACK up the stairs, and duck into the elevator. If you RAN the whole time I
told
you to, the guards won't be back yet. You weren't exactly a silent shadow, but
nobody
knows what happened, and that's what really matters.


METHOD B-		one large pizza with pepperoni, mushrooms and death
This plan is also fun, mostly because of the pink shorts.

When in the laundry, dump your SD 9mm down the chute. Keep the bomb. RUN over to
the
men's bathroom on the other side. If you were fast enough, Big Head the pizza
boy
should just now be arriving. Check the map. If there's anyone in that potty, you
were
too slow to do this with no alerts. At least, not unless you want to wait for
another
pizza cycle to pass.

Run to the plant near the far stall, and wait. The pizza dude will come in and
use the
far stall, giving you an easy chance to sneak up and drug him. Tuck his body
into the
stall, and take his clothes. If you got here late, you can chase him down and
drug him,
but you better be fast to get him before he reaches the lobby. I don't recommend
shooting the poor guy. Even with the silenced pistol, the firemen nearby often
get
suspicious, and that leads to trouble. Once dressed in your oh-so-chic new pink
and
turquoise outfit, walk over to the pizza joint. Keep an eye on the map for the
guard
who walks into that hall to get a pizza, then changes his mind and walks out. If
you
bump into him in close quarters he'll see right through your disguise.

Walk over to the window and get the pizza. Walk with it to the basement, taking
the
elevator. You CAN take the stairs, but then you have to go the long way around
and pick
some locks. Once down, avoid the guards and find a nice piece of machinery to
hide
behind. Drop the bomb. Wait til the guards all start running out, then head to
the
laundry, grab your gun, and run to the guard room. Run down the stairs. Yeah,
more
running. Look, do you want to get a good rating and get back to the exit before
the
guards return or not?

I guess you're supposed to sneak up on your target, avoiding the boxes and
pizzas and
chips on the floor, but we don't have time for that. Whip out your fiber wire
and RUN
at him. He'll sound the alarm, but guess what? The guards that it calls are busy
being
alarmed by smoke. You shouldn't have much trouble choking Fatty, then running up
to
the exit elevator before any guards return.


METHOD C-		a slight variation
Follow method B up until you reach the basement. Avoid the guards and approach
the
laundry. Wait until the patrolling guard is in the laundry, and hide in the
little room
along that hall. When he walks back out to the main area, go into the laundry,
grab
your gun, drop the bomb, and go back to your hiding spot. Sneak out of that
supply room
to the main area when the patroller walks back to the laundry, and make for the
sub-
basement. You know the drill the rest of the way.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
Either way works, just be sure to keep the close-calls to a minimum as the pizza
boy.
Also, you have to kill the target manually, since the security computer costs
you a
bullet. Personally, I recommend method A. You get Silent Assassin for spending
five
minutes running full-tilt like a crazed ax-murderer, all while dressed like a
member of
the Village People. That's a story 47 can look forward to telling his
grandclones when
he retires.


THE EASY WAY
------------
Method A is the easiest way, because you don't have to worry about the basement
guards,
and you can bring whatever you want with you.


LOOT
----
Fire ax-        The only loot worth noting here is the ax. Just take it with you
when
                you leave after using the fireman approach.





                              MISSION 11- GRAVEYARD SHIFT
=================================================================================
=====

Somehow it became late at night during your ride up the elevator. Most of the
employees
have gone home, but a host of guards, three programmers, and one very gullible
sysadmin
remain.

Tips-
1. Either disguise works moderately well.
2. The guards seem to see through the guard disguise faster than the programmers
do.
3. Conversely, the programmers are faster to catch on when you're dressed as
Hit-
bert.
4. Remember, the goal is NOT to kill the sysadmin.
5. The guards here move so slowly in such large orbits that predicting them is
often
quite hard.
6. On top of that, the programmers randomly take turns visiting the sysadmin, so
I
can't be TOO specific in my advice re sneaking around unseen.
7. When you jump out the window, someone will always know. Don't ask me how.
8. The closest programmer/admin will ALWAYS run to the guards when the glass
breaks.


FIRST CHALLENGE-        Basically all of the mission
-------
METHOD A-		Hitting him where it hurts
Head into the kitchen. Shoot out the coffee-cam, and then wait in the upper left
corner. The sysadmin will come to check it out, allowing you to bag him in the
manner
of your choosing. This gets you a handy, if dorky, disguise, and removes the
sysadmin
from the equation with regard to getting the keycard. It's still in his office
you see.
Sneak there, avoiding close contact with anyone. Wait in a cubicle, if you need
to, for
any visitors he may've had to leave his office. Grab the keycard, then make your
way
BACK to the server room, and let yourself in.


METHOD B-		Hot in here
Sneak around to the south a ways. Wait til the coast is clear (like when the
guard in
the hall is walking down near the bathrooms) and creep around the corner to your
left
(right on the map) toward the southwest room with a (!) sign. Pick the lock
(nobody
comes this way) and step inside.

On the table is a keycard. Don't get excited, it's not the server room key.
Leave this
room, and, again, wait for the nearby patroller to be looking the wrong way, and
sneak
back into the elevator area. From there, stand near the kitchen, and wait for
the coast
to be clear in the northern hall. When it is, head into the "AIRCON" room with
your
new keycard. Pull out your silenced pistol and plug the machine, right where it
says,
"temperature normal."

When the admin comes running, sneak into the server room (he forgets to lock the
door)
after him, and drug/wire him while he attempts to reboot the poor thing. You can
take
his clothes if you want to make your escape a little easier. This is probably
the
easiest way to do the mission, since you don't need to sneak to the office, then
back
to the server, then back to the window.


METHOD C-		The direct approach
Wait til the guard in the southern hall is facing the other way, and sneak into
the
bathrooms. When he's facing the wrong way again, leave the stalls and head to
the
south-most cubicle area. Approach the long wall on the western side of the map.
You'll
probably want to save here, since the programmers tend to randomly take turns
visiting
the admin.

Also complicating matters is the fact that the admin sometimes gets up and faces
the
door. I'm not sure if he does this when the door opens, or if he just does it
from time
to time randomly. The best way around it is to open the door from the side, so
he can't
see you, but you can see him. He'll probably stand up. Watch him through the
keyhole a
bit, and when he starts to sit down, open it, and sneak in. He SHOULD stay put
long
enough for you to drug him.

Do not, however, take his clothes. People come in here pretty regularly, so the
disguise would only be good for a minute or so. Grab the card, and sneak back to
the
server room. It's not TOO hard if you use the map.


METHOD D-		The empty office
This one is sort of unreliable, but it's nice if it works. Wait til the
southernmost
programmer visits the admin, and has been in there a while. Shoot the window,
and the
ADMIN will run to the guards. Oddly enough, the visiting programmer will not, so
you
have to wait for him to leave. The admin stays out of his office for a long
time,
though, so getting the card unseen shouldn't be too hard as long as you can stay
out of
sight while the guards are investigating the window.


SECOND CHALLENGE-       Finishing up
------------------------------------
Plant your dongle on the server (Ooo! Naughty!) and leave. Sneak your way back
to the
long eastern hall, and find the windows overlooking the skybridge. Shoot 'em,
and make
your way across the bridge to end the mission. You can crawl under the lights
here, but
it's easy enough to go around them. Luckily these last two guards are pretty
dense. You
can walk quite close to them without alerting them. My best advice is to wait
until the
two guards on the skybridge are over halfway through the part of their loop
where they
walk to stand near each other and gaze out at the sky. You should be able to run
most
of the distance undetected, and walk behind them when you get close. From there,
you
can usually run to the end of the level without them shooting at you. If they do
get a
shot off, you just lost your SA rating.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
You have to use method c and chloroform the sysadmin, because the other two
methods
involve too many gunshots. Unfortunately, there will always be an alert a little
while
after you jump out the window. This means that in order to get Silent Assassin,
you
have to make it to the end of the mission BEFORE the alert comes, while still
being
stealthy enough that those last guards don't get to shoot you. It's tricky to
get the
timing right, but it can be done with a minimum of fuss.


THE EASY WAY
------------
There isn't one really. I'd reccomend following what I prescribe for SA and just
killing anyone that gets in the way.


LOOT
----
There's no loot worth mentioning on this mission.





                              MISSION 12- THE JACUZZI JOB
=================================================================================
=====

So where, exactly, do they keep the revolvers? The funny thing about this
mission is
that it's supposed to look like a robbery gone bad. However, if you get a good
rating,
then security will find two things stolen, and the target silently killed in
front of
his bodyguards. That doesn't look a DAMN THING like a robbery gone wrong! That
looks
like a hit where the assassin decided to make a little side cash.

1. This is such a small mission, most of you will probably just shoot everybody
and be
done with it. Why did you buy this game, again?
2. You CAN fall off the ledge. Be careful.
3. You can trip the fuses as many times as you like.
4. The alarms will go off if you try to steal anything with the power still on.
5. You CAN take out the technician easily enough, but that will result in
security
being called.
6. With the lights off, it's not nearly as dark as you might think. There's a
LOT of
light coming in those huge windows and the guards can see you just fine.
7. Having a disguise doesn't make the mission significantly easier, but getting
one
means you've halved the number of patrolling guards.
8. Don't forget to close up the safe and painting after you steal the cash.


FIRST CHALLENGE-        Stealing things
---------------------------------------
Head around the ledge to the big window behind the piano lady. Crouch, and make
your
way around the ledge. Occasionally a guard walks out onto the middle ledge, but
he
won't see you as long as you're crouching. When you get near the southernmost
(!) room,
wait til the coast is clear (shouldn't be hard, since there's only 2 patrolling
guards)
and run in and grab the nightvision.

If you want to steal a guard's uniform, the best plan is to wait in the
southwestern
corner of the central balcony. A guard walks through here, but won't see you in
that
area. You can probably close the door he came through, if you're close enough,
and
drill him in the back of the head with the silenced 9mm before he gets to the
other
door.

Continue around the outside edge to the easternmost balcony, next to the office.
Now,
wait until the secretary checks the safe, and goes to the bathroom. This allows
you to
run into the fuse room. Smash the fuses, and switch on your annoyingly narrow
night-
vision goggles.

We already know that the safe room is clear, so run back in there and steal the
money.
Head south out the door to the balcony, and watch the map. If you don't have a
disguise, you want the main room area to be ENTIRELY devoid of the patrolling
male
guards. The piano lady won't bother you if you're sneaky. Grab the statue and
walk back
out to the balcony.


SECOND CHALLENGE-       Close encounters with fat naked men
--------------
METHOD A-		lights go on, lights go off
Wait til the technician has fixed the fuses and left. Then, when the coast is
clear, go
back into the fuse room and watch the map. When the hall is devoid of guards,
smash
the fuses AGAIN, and run to the bedroom. It doesn't matter if the girls are here
or
not. Stay behind the screen, up against the door, and watch the map. Once the
tech has
arrived, wait til the coast is clear all the way to the elevator, then step to
the left
and shoot Charlie once in the head with the silenced pistol. Quickly turn and
exit
through the door, and the girls should be oblivious to what happened. If they
open
fire, you were either too close, or not fast enough. Run to the elevator, which,
conveniently, is there waiting for you.


METHOD B-		why does everyone in this game have to pee so much?
Either during the first black-out, or during a second one if you were a bit
slow, sneak
into the bedroom, and hide against the screen, to the right of the basket. There
is a
gap between the screen and the side wall through which the girls can see you, so
be
careful not to hug the wall too much.

Eventually, the girls will go out to the potty, and won't notice you as long as
you're
in sneak mode. You can now have your way with Charlie. Make your way to the
elevator.
Getting the timing on the exit here is a little tricky, since you'll actually
have to
wait for the elevator, while the guards are strolling around.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
Either way works, but method A is easier. It's better to spare the guard, in my
opinion, since the uniform doesn't REALLY help. The funny thing about this
mission is
that there's no middle ground. You can either kill pretty much everybody, or get
Silent Assassin.


THE EASY WAY
------------
Just kill everybody. There's so few of them it's quite easy if you take the time
to
isolate the patrolling guards and secretary, then you can take piano lady and
rush
Charlie and the girls together.


LOOT
----
Revolver-       There's revolvers a-plenty here, in case you didn't take the
Don's.





                            MISSION 13- MURDER IN THE BAZAAR
=================================================================================
=====

Don't let this mission fool you with its sniper rifles and skylights. It's
really much
simpler and more visceral than that. Nuristan, for those not in the know, is a
region
of Afghanistan which, unfortunately, looks nothing like its depiction in this
game.
It's more mountainous, surprisingly green, and the culture has a heavy Chinese
influence.

Tips-
1. All you need is love. And a big, pointy knife.
2. This is the first mission of the Nuristan chapter, so whatever you bring here
will
be all you'll have later.
3. The Colonel will flee when alerted, but the Lieutenant will only double his
security.
4. You can do either hit first. It doesn't matter.
5. The only point of a disguise on this level is to carry around a rifle.
Otherwise,
they're useless. If you behave normally while dressed as a peasant, the Suspici-
O-Meter
will never even move into the red, and you can run and frolic with impunity.
However,
when in disguise, you have to keep your distance and be very wary of the meter.
The
disguises actually make this mission HARDER.
6. Despite what the description says, the Lieutenant never moves unless
disturbed.
7. Despite dropping the hint about his weak heart, there doesn't seem to be any
way to
exploit that ailment to dispose of him. You'd think there would be.
8. The order in which you kill the targets is up to you.


FIRST CHALLENGE-        The Lieutenant
--------------------------------------
METHOD A-		up close and personal
The Lieutenant's house is guarded by two pairs of soldiers. The guys around the
back
seem to have a short attention span. They wander pretty far away, and give you
ample
chance to sneak to the pack of the house, pick the lock, and go in. In fact, if
you run
straight there from the start of the mission, you can pick the lock and get
inside
before they ever get back there. Be sure to start sneaking before you go inside.

Start to back up the stairs and get Osama, oops, I mean, the Lieutenant in your
sights.
He looks left and right. Wait til he looks to his left, (away from you) and
sneak up
the stairs. If you make it around the corner and behind that big pole, you'll be
okay.
From here, you can take him in the manner of your choosing. Might as well sneak
right
up and knife or wire him, since you're so close already. Personally, I really
came to
appreciate the speed of the knife in Nuristan. Grab the document from the
corpse. I
would NOT recommend taking his clothes.

Have a look at the map before you charge down the stairs. More than likely, the
back-
door guards have come inside. However, you might notice that they're not facing
the
stairs. Sneak down and out the door. You should have oodles of time.


METHOD B-		because sniping is fun
If you don't have a disguise already, head toward the guard quarters in the
northern
part of the map. Head around the back of the quarters, and wait for the lone
patroller
who walks back here. Plug him with a silenced pistol. Take his clothes, and make
sure
nobody's going to see his body from around the corner.

Go in the building and grab the SVD rifle. Don't let those ladders fool you. You
can't
snipe anything useful from up here. Walk around the ladder near the bazaar and
head up
on the roof. Be sure to give all guards a wide berth now that you're disguised.
From
here, you can shoot the Lieutenant through his window. If you get away from the
scene
of the crime quickly enough, you SHOULD be okay, but don't bet on it.

It's a good idea to do the Colonel first, as the sound of the sniper rifle will
make
him flee. You CAN tag him in the back with the sniper from this very spot, but
it's
not exactly going to be clean, and you'll be dodging bullets as you grab the key
and
flee the level.

It should also be noted that you're going to have quite a hard time getting IN
to the
Lieutenant and steal his document. You'll probably just have to wait and hope
the
soldiers get bored of looking at his corpse. You could snipe them too, I
suppose. All
in all, a LOT more trouble than it's worth.


SECOND CHALLENGE-       The Colonel
-----------------------------------
METHOD A- 		the direct approach
Bring your silenced 9mm. Right at the start, run up to the corner where the
Colonel
shows up. Once he passes you, shoot him in the head with the pistol. If you were
fast
enough, he should fall near the little dog house thing, and it'll be
surprisingly long
before anyone finds his body. Don't bother dragging it. You can't move it
anywhere
useful without being seen. Take the key, and try to do the Lieutenant before
they find
the body and tighten security.


METHOD B-		death from above
Climb onto the roof of the bazaar. Watch the Colonel and his bodyguard as they
move
through the bazaar. You'll find there's a store in the middle of the southern
side
where they stop and both face away from the skylights. The merchant is facing
you, but
you can position yourself so that he can't see you. This is the best spot I've
found
from which to shoot the Colonel. If you use your silenced pistol and quickly
duck away
from the window once he's dead, nobody should be the wiser. If you're still in
your
peasant dress, you can walk into the bazaar and take the key when nobody's
looking.
You'll want to do the Lieutenant first, since his security will tighten up
almost right
away after you do this.


METHOD C-		up close and personal
While wearing your stylish peasant attire, stroll into the bazaar, and hide
behind the
boxes in the easternmost store on the lower side. Wait. Eventually, the Colonel
and
his bodyguard will come nearby, and the Colonel walks in here. Sneak out behind
him and
slit his throat (you don't have time for the wire.) Without coming out of sneak
mode,
drag the body back behind the boxes and grab the key. If you're in peasant garb
as
instructed, you can stroll out right past the bodyguard and nobody will raise
more than
an eyebrow. Be sure to put your knife away first, though. Nobody ever finds the
body,
so you CAN do this before the Lieutenant. If you did it second, you can just
walk to
the exit unhindered.


METHOD D-		sorta cheating
Bring your crossbow. Move over a little the right, and bring it up. Zoom in and
plug
Colonel Pincushion right in the face before he ever reaches the bazaar. If you
were
fast enough, the nearby guards will not find the body right away, giving you
time to do
the Lieutenant. Be sure to drop the crossbow before heading on.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
Don't bother with a costume. They actually make getting around HARDER on this
level.
Use the "close and personal" approach for both targets. No alerts. No close-
calls. No
shots. No enemies killed. Under 5 minutes. It's so picture perfect, I almost
want to
frame it. As long as you remember not to use a disguise, this is a VERY easy SA
rating.


THE EASY WAY
------------
Although method D is the easiest way to kill the Colonel, the methods I covered
for
the SA rating are so easy, I'd have to go with them as The Easy Way for this
mission.


LOOT
----
Revolver-       On the Colonel. Not going to list these any more.
SVD Sniper-     In the guard's quarters. Getting out with it is a bit tricky,
but you
                probably already have one.
AK-             On every guard. Again, you really should already have one, no?
Not
		going to list these any more, either.





                            MISSION 14- MOTORCADE INTERCEPTION
=================================================================================
=====

A truly maze-like mission, where your windows of opportunity are painfully
narrow, and
easily missed. I hope you're good at sniping! Like its predecessor, most of this
mission is deceptively simple.

Tips-
1. The guards here are pretty laid back, especially if you're an unarmed
civilian.
2. You can get away with carrying the M195 if dressed as a soldier, but be sure
to
give any other soldiers a wide berth, and completely avoid civilians. Don't let
them
see you at ALL.
3. You can stop the motorcade by shooting the engine of the front jeep, since
that's
pretty much the function of this rifle in real life. However, doing so virtually
guarantees the UN guys will start shooting at you, or at least in your
direction, and
ruin your rating.
4. If you do stop the motorcade, the limo driver gets out, making your shot that
much
easier.
5. If the Khan is killed in town, and nobody is immediately sure who did it, the
UN
guys will start a gun battle with the local soldiers. This creates some very
nice cover
for you on your way out, but don't let them see you in a soldier's uniform.
6. The actual sniping is by far the hardest part of the mission. I'm afraid I
don't
really have any tips that can make it much easier. Try to move the mouse counter
to the
bob of the gun, and be sure to SAVE before you try the shot. You're trying to
hit a
moving target through a narrow window with a driver and a VIP passenger in the
way.
Good luck!
7. If you use a guard's uniform as a disguise, remember to follow the usual
rules about
avoiding close contact and blending in.
8. Guard and civilian paths are very long, and somewhat random on this map.
Because of
that, I can't give the kind of specific advice for avoiding them that I do on
earlier
maps. Sorry.


FIRST CHALLENGE-        Blending in
-----------------------------------
METHOD A-		the far corner
Way up on the northeast corner of the map, you'll find a perfect little hiding
place
for dead/sleeping bodies. Early on, a guard walks through here by himself,
practically
begging to be snuffed and tucked into that cozy corner. A civilian sometimes
walks
through here too, but they walk MUCH faster than the guards, and he'll be out of
the
way pretty quickly. Take the uniform, once you've got the body hidden.


METHOD B-		closer to home
Several guards patrol around the area where your contact is located. Follow the
lone
guard and snuff him in the manner of your choosing. I'd suggest the knife, for
speed.
Drag him into the area with your contact, and make sure he's far enough in that
nobody
can see him.


SECOND CHALLENGE-       Sniping
-------------------------------
METHOD A-		the mosque
This is where all the other faqs out there will tell you to snipe from. They're
right
that it IS the closest to the exit, but that doesn't really help you avoid
alerts. The
shot from this position is really quite hard, since most of the time you can see
the
limo, it'll be moving laterally.

Once you've got the rifle, head here, being sure to avoid close contact with
guards,
and not to let the civilians see you at ALL. Once you reach the roof, head
around the
southeast corner, behind the big dome. This way there's a big chunk of building
between
you and the service-going soldiers.

Sniping the Khan is so hard from here, that I can only recommend you snipe the
lead
jeep and then take the target. From here you can drop down and run to the exit
pretty
quickly. If you didn't kill anyone to get a disguise, you can still get SA this
way,
if you're extremely lucky. However, there's much easier, quieter and more
reliable ways
to get the job done.


METHOD B-               the dead center of town
There's a set of stairs in the middle of town that leads up to a ladder, which
leads
to the obvious sniper spot. It's a good enough spot, if you like being shot at.
If
you're going to use it, drop the rifle until you're ready to shoot. You can stop
the
motorcade if you're having trouble hitting the Khan past his driver, but it's
pretty
much grunted the UN will open fire on you if this happens.

On top of that, it's almost impossible to get off a shot (let alone two) without
the
local soldiers zeroing in your location. You might lucky and be able to avoid
detection, but this is too fluky for me to recommend. There's more reliable ways
to do
the mission without raising suspicion.


METHOD C-		surprisingly easy
You'll smack yourself when you see how easy this is. Wait til the coast is clear
and
run from the contact's area to the stairs behind the wall just to the northwest.
Go
into sneak mode. From here, you can only get the shot off as the limo is about
to exit
the level. A painfully narrow window, but it's not like you can just take your
time and
plug away from any other spots. Once back here and sneaking, walk just far
enough up
the stairs to be able to shoot. You can test if you're far enough by trying to
aim with
the rifle. If there's no clearance, 47 won't bring the gun up.

If you're in disguise, you should be able to just wait for the limo. If not,
drop the
gun and wait until the limo's in town before picking it up. Oddly, reaching this
location doesn't trigger the immediate limo arrival like the other spots do, so,
if you
want, you can drop the gun here and THEN go get a disguise. That way, you can
use the
chloroform and not worry about the victim waking up before the mission is over.

As I said, you only have a brief chance to shoot the Khan as the limo is about
to leave
the level, but the shot will be much easier than usual. The passenger is on the
other
side, and the driver isn't in the way. On top of that, you are considerably
closer. I
kill the Khan about 50% of the time just aiming loosely at the back corner of
the limo.
It's not perfect, but it's as easy as that shot is going to get without stopping
the
motorcade. Duck down behind the wall, and the UN guys will obligingly start a
nice
gunfight to cover your escape.

You can pretty much walk out with impunity, since nobody knows you did it. If
you want
the M195, all you have to do is dodge the civilians on your way out. This is
easy since
they're probably running and hiding already. If you do have trouble getting out,
just
leave the gun behind and grab your original peasant cloths.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
Theoretically, any position works, as long as nobody shoots at you while you
leave.
For my money, the easiest way by leaps and bounds is to kill either guard at the
start
to get a disguise, then snipe ala method c. If you change back into your peasant
outfit, you can just run to the exit and nobody will care. The mission can be
ludicrously easy this way. If you want SA AND the M195, use the same method, but
stay
in your disguise, and just be sure to avoid civilians on the way out.


THE EASY WAY
------------
Follow method B to get a disguise, and just shoot the guy. Then snipe from the
spot I
cover in method C. It's just so much easier to reach and shoot from than
anywhere else.
When done, drop the rifle and grab your civilian duds, then just mosey to the
exit.


LOOT
----
M195-           The big gun you get from your contact. You can leave with it
easily
                enough if you're dressed as the soldier, and avoid UN soldiers
and
                civilians on your way out.
M4-             If you've been playing the game PROPERLY, like me, you'll have
already
                had this for 9 levels. Otherwise, you can grab it if a UN guy
gets
                shot in the crossfire. Alternatively, if you're stealthy enough,
you
                can drug one of the guys by the east gate and take his. Good
luck doing
                this and not being seen.
M60-            See M4. This shows up elsewhere, so ignore it for now.





                               MISSION 15- TUNNEL RAT
=================================================================================
=====

Ewwwwwwwwwww. This one's a pain, plain and simple. Oh, and what's with recycling
the
model and skin on the target? Not that I MIND killing ANOTHER Osama Bin Laden
look-
alike I suppose.

Tips-
1. Turning off the generator makes it REALLY dark. You can walk right by
soldiers and
they won't even see you.
2. Having said that, the guards turn the generator back ON again really quickly.
It
doesn't give you very much time at all.
3. Free the torture victim if you want to know where the target is.
4. The sewer seems to be a bit of a red herring. It's okay for passing some
guards, but
often, they see me whether I'm ducking, sneaking, under a bridge, or whatever.
It's not
nearly as useful for getting around as it may seem.
5. I don't recommend using chloroform on one of the surface guards to obtain a
costume.
There's no way you'll get this mission done in five minutes.
6. Don't worry about the nightvision. The generator is only useful for one
purpose, and
there'll be a convenient torch to adequately light your way.


FIRST CHALLENGE-        That first dude
---------------------------------------
I'm listing this separately because I'll get tired of repeating myself. It's
about that
guard at the very beginning. While you're learning the map, it's probably
easiest to
just gun him down (snipe him if you brought the M195) and take his clothes. When
you're
ready to play for keeps, you'll probably get sick of waiting for him to walk
past. If
you run straight from the start of the level, and turn LEFT, you can get around
the
southernmost wall before he ever comes into view. From there, you can keep
running, and
hang a right. It should be obvious how to reach either set of stairs from here.


SECOND CHALLENGE-       Blending in
-----------------------------------
METHOD A-		the north stairs
Come at these stairs from the north, and wait for the two guards to separate.
These two
will be in your way later when you need to clear the helipad, so if you kill
them now,
it only makes life easier later on. Take out the close one with your silenced
pistol,
and drag him back around the northern wall. Take his kit, and you should be able
to
head down the stairs before his friend returns. If you're not overly concerned
about
ratings, go ahead and shoot the other guy too.

You'll probably want to wait until the hallway is clear and duck into the bunk
room to
grab the M60. Wait in the vacant exit from that room for your next opportunity.


METHOD B-		the south stairs
If you didn't snipe the first guy, you'll probably want to kill this guy to get
a
disguise. The best place to leave his body is on the stairs. Sometimes you might
find
yourself unable to pick this lock. If this happens, you have to restart the
level.

Once down, stay in the little alcove, and check the position of the patroller in
the
hall leading east. When he's moved a good distance away, you'll want to follow
him and
duck into one of the little alcoves along the side. When he goes back, you can
move
into a further alcove. Ultimately, you want to be waiting in the alcove furthest
east,
on the north side of the hall.


METHOD A-		the north stairs, no disguise
This is sort of overkill. It's not necessary for Silent Assassin, but it's there
if
you want a bit of fun, or to do the mission with no kills. Watch the two guards
at the
northern stairs. The southern guard has two routes. First, he goes to the other
side of
the stairs to pee, and second, he wanders way the heck off to the west. Wait for
him to
do the latter, and then run around to the back of the stair structure, where
that same
guard sometimes goes for his pee break.

When the other guard steps away from the door, you can slip down the stairs
unseen.
Wait here for the two guards who visit the torture room to leave, and for the
torturer
to get really stuck into it. You can move out and walk down the hall leading
west
undetected, as long as you stick to the southern side of the hall, next to the
sewer.

When you approach the boxes, start sneaking behind them, and to the left. Watch
the guy
in the generator room before moving in. He looks slowly left and right. Wait
until he
looks away from you then start your approach. Move as far to your right as you
can
while sneaking, so that he won't be able to see you. You should be able to sneak
right
up to the generator without him clueing in, but if not, it's no big deal.

Shut off the generator, and head down the winding tunnel. If the guard is still
by the
generator, don't start running til you get a little ways away from him. Be sure
not to
move faster than a walk in the bunk room. Your goal is to make it down the
winding hall
and out of the generator guard's line of sight before the lights come back on.
If the
generator guard DOES run for the alarm, it's generally not a problem, because
the power
will be off by the time he gets there, and he'll forget what happened when they
come
back on. Sometimes he remembers, sometimes he doesn't.

Once in the bunk room, change clothes and grab your weapon of choice. Wait in
the
unoccupied exit from this room.


METHOD B-		the south stairs, no disguise
This is completely gratuitous, but it illustrates what I love about this game.
The fact
that this option is even viable is just great. Anyway, approach the stairs from
behind,
and sneak around so that you come at the stair guard from behind. Watch him look
back
and forth, and, when he's looking the other way, sneak the final stretch to the
door.
Pick it, and head on down.

When the coast is clear and nobody is watching you, hop into the sewer and start
duck-
ing. Keep an eye on the map to make sure nobody is looking at you, and creep
around to
the north, past the steps. When the fidgety guard to the south isn't looking,
creep,
ducking all the way, up the sewers to the north. Hang a right at the first
ladder, and
climb out behind the boxes north of the generator room.

When you approach the boxes, start sneaking behind them, and to the left. Watch
the guy
in the generator room before moving in. He looks slowly left and right. Wait
until he
looks away from you then start your approach. Move as far to your right as you
can
while sneaking, so that he won't be able to see you. You should be able to sneak
right
up to the generator without him clueing in, but if not, it's no big deal.

Shut off the generator, and head down the winding tunnel. If the guard is still
by the
generator, don't start running til you get a little ways away from him. Be sure
not to
move faster than a walk in the bunk room. Your goal is to make it down the
winding hall
and out of the generator guard's line of sight before the lights come back on.
If the
generator guard DOES run for the alarm, it's generally not a problem, because
the power
will be off by the time he gets there, and he'll forget what happened when they
come
back on. Sometimes he remembers, sometimes he doesn't.

Once in the bunk room, change clothes and grab your weapon of choice. Wait in
the
unoccupied exit from this room.


THIRD CHALLENGE-        Osama Bin Target
----------------------------------------
By now, you're patiently waiting in one of two places, and have freed the
prisoner, at
least in a test game, so you know where the target is. There's two guard who
patrol the
nearby hallway, and it's important to differentiate them on your map. The guy
with NO
gun visible patrols from the boss's door to the torture room, and takes his turn
at
pummeling the victim. He pauses for quite some time at both of his stops. The
other
guy has an M60 and patrols the whole length of the hall, pausing at either end,
as well
as in front of the bosses door. When he stops, he only stops very briefly. If
you're
coming from the south, you also have to watch the guard patrolling the southern
hallway.

It shouldn't take long for a decent window to open up, and allow you to walk
into the
target's room. Start sneaking once you're here, and pull out your knife or wire.
If
there have been no alerts, the target will be in his closet admiring his pirated
copies
of Hitman, and you can choke or knife him easily. I used the knife because
nobody hears
the body drop. If there have been alerts, or if you were noisy, he'll probably
be
facing the closet door, so you'll have to open it and shoot him quickly with a
silenced
pistol before he gets to scream.

Grab the chloroform, and sneak back to the door. There's probably a guard in
front of
it by now, but wait a few seconds and the coast will clear up. When it does,
move on
out.


OPTIONAL CHALLENGE-     Free the torture victim
-----------------------------------------------
This poor guy. As far as I can tell, there's no way to free him and still get
Silent
Assassin, so I can't tell you how many times I had to walk past and watch the
beating.
He will run away if the torturer who never leaves is killed. Not drugged,
killed. He
then runs up the stairs and makes a bee line for your entrance point. If either
of the
guards at the helipad are alive, the torture victim will not survive his escape.
It IS
possible to sneak in without drugging or killing any guards, grab the spare
disguise,
kill the target, drug the two guards by the helipad, and then shoot the
torturer. The
problem is, when the OTHER torturer comes back, he'll sound the alarm when he
finds the
victim gone, and that costs you an SA rating. Chloroforming the first guy and
then
shooting the visiting torturer doesn't work; the hostage won't flee. I'd try
shooting
the first guy, hiding him, and then pounce/drugging the second guy from that
little
wooden platform over the sewer, but frankly, I'm fed up with this guy. He can
stay
here and get punched in the nuts for eternity for all I care.

Bottom line; he's easy enough to free if you're not concerned about ratings.
Shoot the
torturer and drag him into the stairwell, or dump him in the sewer over on the
western
corner of the room.


FOURTH CHALLENGE-       Escaping with the cargo
-----------------------------------------------
From the target's room, wait for the coast to be clear and walk to the northern
entrance to the bunk room. Once the hall is clear again, sneak into the torture
room
and walk around the outside edge of it. The torturer will probably get somewhat
suspicious, but not enough to cause problems.

In the next room, stay to the north, and start sneaking when you get to the
northern
pile of boxes. Sneak around behind it, and the guard in the middle of the boxes
won't
notice you. Once you've gotten around the crates, you can stroll into the
elevator
room. Once you're in the elevator, push the button to go up, and immediately run
and
duck behind the cargo. The guards won't see you, and they'll just go back to
what they
were doing before.


FIFTH CHALLENGE-        Clearing the helipad
--------------------------------------------
Well, the simple thing to do here is just shoot these last two guys with
whatever you
happen to be carrying. For Silent Assassin, though, it's a bit trickier. If you
used
the northern approach, one of these guys is already dead. Likewise, if you
haven't
killed anyone yet, you can shoot one to make this part a little easier.

Both of these guys take pretty long pee breaks, and it's not especially hard to
sneak
up and chloroform them. Just don't let either of them see you do it. If you want
to
make it even easier, come up these stairs before you liberate the cargo. When
the
southern guard walks away to relieve himself, you can just open the door and
smother
the second one. Drag him inside the door and part way down the stairs. When his
buddy
returns, you can just sneak out the door again, and drug him in the same manner.

If both are down, and the mission's not ending, try walking out onto the
helipad. There
might be also another guard in the area. Perhaps one who came up from the stairs
because of an alarm.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
Not that tricky. Just make sure you kill only one guard, and chloroform any
others that
you need to bypass. The only guards on the whole map that you HAVE to take out
are the
two by the helipad, and the easiest way to do that is to use the northern
approach,
shoot one of the guards by the stairs, and take his clothes. Then you just have
to
chloroform his friend on your way out. The target is easy enough to wire or
knife, so
that shouldn't affect your rating at all. If you're liberal with the chloroform,
it IS
possible to do this mission with no kills, alerts, close-calls or shots fired.


THE EASY WAY
------------
Kill the first guard and leave him. Head to the northern stairs and gun down
both
guards seperately and silently. Follow the SA advice for the rest of the
mission. The
guards here bunch up so much that sneaking is much easier than killing them.


LOOT
----
M60-            Easy enough to walk out with it, but kinda tricky to do so and
achieve
                SA. If you chloroform the guards at the end, you won't be able
to pick
                it up again before the mission ends. This means you have to
AVOID kill-
                ing anyone until you make your exit, so you can shoot the final
guard
                at the helicopter pad. OR to make life easier, use the northern
                approach, and shoot the first guard you come to. Use his clothes
to
                get in. Then, after killing the target, head back up he stairs
and
                chloroform the other one. When you come up in the elevator, M60
in
                hand, you'll be all clear. Actually, it turns out this is one of
the
                easiest ways to beat the mission.
Chloroform-     This isn't loot in the sense that you don't already have some,
but it's
                nice to finally be able to carry more.





                            MISSION 16- TEMPLE CITY AMBUSH
=================================================================================
=====

I thought this was going to be a really hard mission. I was trying to figure out
ways
to kill both assassins with no bullets, and only chloroform the Purple Turban
Man, and
then I found that they all count as targets. That makes life a LOT easier.

Tips-
1. A disguise doesn't seem to make any difference on this mission.
2. There's another SP12 lying around. If you want to keep it, its going to be
much
easier to take that one than smuggle the first one through the level.
3. The only time people seem to get suspicious of your movements is between
meeting
Agent Smith and killing the first pair of assassins.
4. It's okay for civilians to see corpses, since it won't count as an alert.
However,
they run to get cult cops, so you better be sure the body isn't there when they
get
back.
5. There's some 7.62 mm ammo lying around this map. What the heck is it for?
6. Even though you can find Smith on your own, visit the first contact at the
start of
the mission. More shotgun ammo won't hurt you, and you might need this place
later to
stash a body. It'd suck to have a conversation pop up in the middle of that.
7. You can take care of the first three challenges in whatever order suits you.
8. Anyone else start with only one person worth of chloroform on this level?


FIRST CHALLENGE-        Purple Turban Man
-----------------------------------------
I'm listing him first, because he can show up at any time, and if you try to do
any of
the other challenges while he's following you, you're pretty much hosed. You've
probably noticed this guy; he's got sunglasses, a purple turban, and a pointy
beard. He
will start following you, very obviously, if he sees you. If he doesn't see you
before
you take the two pictures back to Agent Smith, he'll automagically figure out
where you
are and come running. If he reaches Agent Smith, he'll start firing, and
probably kill
him.

The passive solution, if he doesn't find you earlier, is to run out of Smith's
hiding
place and shut the door before Purple Turban Man gets there. He'll then
harmlessly
follow you to the end of the level.

I made a discovery about this guy. On the map, he's an innocent, and, if you
kill him
before he whips out his gun, he'll count as such. However, if you kill him once
he's
following you with his gun hanging out, he counts as a target, which is to say,
he
doesn't count at all. If you can dispose of him with no shots, alerts or close-
calls,
it won't affect your rating in any way!

The best way to do this is to let him start following you, without letting
either of
the other assassins see you. Lead him somewhere quiet, like the back of a plaza
shop,
or into one of the empty stores around town. Just make sure you don't lead him
into
either of the other two assassins, or their corpses.

Once you're in a secluded area, run a little, then face him and sneak. You're
trying to
trigger a behavior where he runs right up to you, then turns his back. Notice
that he
turns his body faster than his head, so wait until his head is straight forward,
and
pull out your weapon of choice. He doesn't always stay still, so the safest best
is to
whip out the knife and immediately use it. If you timed it right, and were
sneaking,
he'll drop to the ground without the Suspici-O-Meter even budging.

If you're feeling merciful, and you think you've got him standing still, you can
use
the chloroform. Sometimes, when he wakes up, the meter goes red and it counts as
a
close-call, but, if you're fast, and have already done the other assassins, that
won't
be an issue.


SECOND CHALLENGE-       Yellow Hat Sniper
-----------------------------------------
This guy's a breeze. You can see from the map where he is. Just make sure that
neither
of the other two assassins see you on your way in. Sneak up behind him, and take
him in
the manner of your choosing. I suggest the wire, since the knife sometimes makes
him
fall forward and people can see an arm or something out the window.

If you want a laugh, save your game, and sneak up here and shoot him in the back
of the
head with the silenced ballers. He does this graceful swan dive out the window
and into
the plaza.

Don't forget to take a picture when he's dead.


THIRD CHALLENGE-        Blue Cap Assassin
-----------------------------------------
METHOD A-		with his friend's rifle
Well, there's this charming sniper rifle all ready for you here. Might as well
use it.
First, though, drag the body down the stairs, and hang a left, leaving the body
in
that little space behind the stairwell. That way, when people run to the scene
of the
shot, they won't find any dead bodies.

From the sniper's nest, you should be able to see a lot of the plaza. When it is
devoid
of cops, and the target is walking right next to a storefront, plug him. Quickly
drop
the rifle and run to the corpse. Drag it into the nearest store, and stash it
behind or
up the stairs. As long as no cult cops see the body, you'll be okay. The
civilians
aren't really a problem, as long as you get the body hidden before they come
back with
cultists. Even if nobody finds the body, you don't want to let the cops see you
hanging
around the scene after the gunshot, you suspicious foreigner you!

Don't forget to take a picture when he's dead.


METHOD B-		come into my parlor
This method is more reliable than the other two, in that it always works if you
do it
right. Unfortunately, it's quite a bit harder. Make sure you kill Purple Turban
and
Yellow Hat before attempting this. Blue Cap will follow you if he sees you, but
he's
very bad at it. If you get too far away, or pass out of his sight for a second,
he'll
lose interest and walk back to the plazas.

Before trying this, you should probably plan your route, and try to walk it
backwards
at least once. You know those other places out in town which are possible
locations for
Agent Smith? You can tell where they are by the presence of a long, thin alley
shown in
gray on the map, shooting off a street. For my money, the two best places to go
are the
potential Smith locale just to the north of the eastern plaza, and the spot
where the
first contact is.

Leading this guy there is harder than it sounds. If he gets too close, he'll
start
firing, and if he gets too far or loses sight of you, he'll head back to the
plaza. If
he does walk away, you can get him back on track by running a bit behind him, so
that
he hears it and turns around. You'll probably want to go backwards, so you can
keep an
eye on him. This is why I told you to plan your route earlier. Lead him to the
front
door of your intended hiding place, and then quickly duck into the side alley
right
when he's in front of the door. Quickly bring up the map and make sure there's
no cops
that will see you. If there are, you can just abort by staying in the alley, and
go
reclaim your tagalong when the coast is clear.

When you duck into the alley, the assassin will lose sight of you and turn to
walk back
to the plaza. Quickly pull out your silenced pistol and drill him. Drag him
through
that door he's conveniently in front of. Like I said, it's harder than the other
plans,
but you have much more control over what's going on. Don't try leading him into
the
back of one of the plaza shops, or see you go through any doors on the street.
If you
do, he'll figure out what's up and open fire.

Don't forget to take a picture when he's dead.


METHOD C-		magic carpet ride
Pick a store in the plaza and hide in amongst its merchandise. I like the carpet
shops,
since the pile of boxes on the far end gives you a perfect shooting nest.
Unfortunately
the assassin's route is very random, so it might take a while before he wanders
close
enough for this to work. Plug him once in the head from your hiding place, and
quickly
run and drag the corpse into the store. Again, as long as no cult cops see the
affair,
you'll be okay.

As opposed to method A, this plan cuts down on the time it takes you to reach
and hide
the corpse. On the downside, you can't really watch the bazaar for cops without
using
the map, and it sometimes takes a long while for the right opportunity to show
up.

Don't forget to take a picture when he's dead.


OPTIONAL CHALLENGE-     Blue Cap and Yellow Hat strike back
--------------
Killing the final two assassins is pretty easy. Just find the ladder nearby, and
head
on up. The trick is killing them and retaining Silent Assassin. Unless you
somehow
managed to kill Blue Cap #1 with no close-calls or shots, you'll only be able to
shoot
one of these guys. I opened the door so the first guy could see me, and lured
him
outside. Once he was far enough from his sniper buddy, I capped him between the
eyes
with my trusty silenced 9mm. Then I snuck in and knifed his friend.


FOURTH CHALLENGE-       Getting out
-----------------------------------
After you show Smith both pictures, you can pretty much run to the end of the
level. If
you come at the exit door from the side, the sniper won't even get a chance to
recognize you.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
Not that hard, since the five assassins all count as targets. You're allowed a
comb-
ination of two shots, alerts, and/or close-calls. Since Purple Turban and Yellow
Hat
can be easily snuffed without any of those, Blue Cap is really the only concern.
I
find it's impossible to kill him without either a shot or a close-call, since
you have
to run up to him to knife him. For my money, method B is the safest and most
reliable
way of disposing of him quietly. The real challenge here is killing all FIVE
assassins
with an SA rating.


THE EASY WAY
------------
The easy way to deal with Purple Turban is to be lucky and avoid him, then bolt
from
Agent Smith's before he shows up. Failing that, lead him to a side-street where
nobody
can see you and quickly whip out your SD 9mm and shoot him. Just leave the body.
The
same goes for Blue Cap. Lead him away from the plaza so nobody can see you, and
get far
enough away that he turns his back. Drill him with the 9mm and leave the body,
just
don't be there when the cops show up.


LOOT
----
SP12-           This is a great automatic shotgun. Oddly enough, there's a spare
one
                lying around the map, pretty close to the exit, which is much
easier to
                escape with than the one at the first contact. It's in an alcove
with
                some brown sacks, a little bit north of the leftmost corner of
the
                western bazaar. You shouldn't have much trouble smuggling it
out. Just
                keep checking the map and drop it if there's people nearby.
SMG-SD6-        If, like me, you didn't get this in Japan because you were too
busy
                picking up katanas, custom rifles and crossbows, you can take
the one
                off purple turban man. Depending on where you led him, it may be
a bit
                of a trick getting it out quietly.
R39 Sniper-     There's two. One on each of the snipers. It's easy enough to get
the
                one near the exit out quietly, in case you missed this in
Sicily.





                           MISSION 17- THE DEATH OF HANNELORE
=================================================================================
=====

Anyone else hear "Doctor" and expect it to be a guy? Yes game, you got me. I am
a
sexist pig. I like to think that I was expecting a male because this is our
first
female target in either game. Speaking of sexism, this is the only female
target, and
killing her is one of the easiest missions! What's up with that?

Tips-
1. You will need a disguise of some type to be able to move around un-shot-at.
2. There's one particular disguise that practically hands this mission to you on
a
silver platter.
3. Take a while to observe which locals walk in and out of the Doc's office.
Maybe if
you were dressed like them...
4. When in said disguise, you can run around and trigger all the suspicion you
like. As
long as you aren't seen with corpse or weapon, nobody will say anything, and it
won't
even count as a close call.
5. The guards in the stairwells near the Doc's office show up on the FIRST floor
map
for some reason, so be sure to check that map before you start dragging her
around.
6. If a civilian finds the Doc's body, you automatically lose the mission.


FIRST CHALLENGE-        Blending in
-----------------------------------
METHOD A-		the art of disguise
Skip the intro movie. The patrolling guards keep moving while it's playing, and
you'll
want to see where the nearby guard goes. At the start, he'll walk toward you,
but he
either veers toward the front door, or comes over and stands conveniently nearby
with
his back to you. Knife/wire/shoot him, and drag the body behind the nearby boat.
I
wouldn't recommend using the chloroform; Method B is much easier if you want to
avoid
kills. Take the guy's clothes when you're done.

Move toward the western entrance, and wait for the guard by the door to walk
away and
relieve himself. Once inside, make a bee line for the white hospital gown
disguise in
the northeasternmost room, being sure to give all guards, cultists AND patients
a wide
berth.


METHOD B-		real men don't kill guards
Again, skipping the intro scene is a good idea so you can keep tabs on that
first
guard. If he turns toward the front door, good. If not, wait for him to get
bored of
hanging out by the boat, and walk away. Once he's out of the way, check the
helipad to
make sure the guard there isn't looking, and you can practically run to the
sewer
entrance. Run through the strangely long and winding drain to the exit, but stop
one
room before you get there.

Secret passage time! The first alcove on your right has a secret passage that
leads to
a ladder up to a grate. Bring up the map of the 1st floor, and, making sure
there's no
civilians nearby, and the one patrolling guard is far away, hop up the ladder.
If the
coast is REALLY clear, you can run all the way to the third door on your right
with no
worries. If not, duck into the nearest room. You can't move through here because
the
patient will see you and become alarmed, but you can wait here for the coast to
be
clear to run outside and into the empty room one further north.

Keep running north through the rooms to the end, and take the patient disguise
sitting
on the bed.


SECOND CHALLENGE-	Is there a Doctor in the house?
----------
Apparently Hitman looks so ridiculous in his hospital gown that nobody thinks he
could
possibly be a world-renowned assassin. Hah! Fear the wolf in dork's clothing!
Anyway,
go grab the key, and poison, if you want it, from the supply area. You can
either wait
for the guard to visit the bathroom (he does it multiple times, so you just need
to
wait for him to do it AGAIN on your way out) or walk right by him. Suspicion
doesn't
seem to matter in this disguise.

Stroll (or run, whatever) into the Doc's area and the nurse will stand up and
speak to
you. Instead of following her, use the other stairs. See, if you walk by the
guard at
the top of the west stairs, he'll be looking RIGHT at you when you try to drag a
certain corpse through the room. Meet the nurse at the top of the stairs and
follow her
into the Doctor's office.

The Doc mistakes you for someone else and starts flapping her lips. You can
either drop
the poison in the water while she isn't looking, or just kill her outright. As
long as
the nurse has gotten away and the door is closed, you can shoot or, or walk up
behind
her and knife or wire her. She's so busy talking, you don't even need to sneak.
Drag
her into the western room, and then into the little triangular room nearby.

If you watch the map, you'll see another patient show up about now, and start
looking
for the good Doctor. Check the first floor map to see if the nearby stairwell
guard is
looking directly at you. If he's only looking sorta at you, open the door and
drag the
Doc out into the round room. Hang a left toward her office door, then go through
the
middle of the room. Sometimes she gets snagged on a door, so watch out for that.

If you can't make it that way, wait until the patient gets tired of searching,
and drag
the body back through her office, through the center of the round room, and into
the
hiding place. Make sure nobody sees her when you leave the supply closet.

From here you can pretty much just run to the exit.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
Since you can take out the Doctor with poison or the knife, as long as you limit
yourself to no more than two total shots, alerts, close-calls and dead guards
you'll be
fine. If you use method B to get in, it's quite easy to finish this with zeroes
across
the board.


THE EASY WAY
------------
Use the first guard's clothes to reach the patient disguise. From there it's a
stupidly
easy mission.


LOOT
----
No loot worth mentioning, unless you count those stunning hospital slippers.





                           MISSION 18- TERMINAL HOSPITALITY
=================================================================================
=====

TERMINAL HORSE BRUTALITY!? Pat yourself on the back if you got that reference.
So
what's the deal here? Wasn't the last mission an island hospital? There are two
island
hospitals within a dinghy ride of each other? As confounding as this mission
appears
from the map, it's really pretty easy. There's a lot of features on the map
you'll
never even use.

Tips-
1. You will need a disguise of some type to be able to move around un-shot-at.
2. Nurses are very suspicious.
3. No, you can't kill or follow "him."
4. This mission is big, there's a ton of different routes to follow to get
anywhere, so
for the most part, I'm going to leave getting around up to your imagination.
5. Although the other guards are carrying guns, don't bother with one while
you're
dressed as a guard. It only serves to make the nurses edgier.


FIRST CHALLENGE-        Blending in
-----------------------------------
METHOD A-		violence
Head out past the rock, and hang a right up the stairs. Stay in a crouch, until
you
reach the first pillar. Check the position of the guy on the boat. You want him
to be
facing away from you, but crawling up the stairs takes so long, he probably
isn't by
now. Check the area around the pool quickly via map, and plug the guy in front
of you
in the side of the head with the silenced pistol. Grab his clothes and drag him
a
little ways down the opposing stairs.


METHOD B-		stealth
Run to the first block of boxes, and wait there for the guard on the boat to
turn his
back. Once he does, run to the second block of boxes, and drop into sneak mode.
Wait
for this guard to start walking away, and move slowly to the west. When you've
put a
decent distance between you and him, you can run to the next corner. Keep going
west
and you'll see a little path running between two hills. Check the map to find
the
position of the patroller who orbits the temple, and you can probably just run
to the
spare costume.


SECOND CHALLENGE-       Blending further in
-------------------------------------------
There's about a billion ways to get to the Doctor's office, and I'm sure you can
figure
at least one out on your own. All you have to do is keep a good distance between
you
and any nurses. I ran to the northwest spiral stairwell, and, sneaking first,
picked
the door into it. Then, checking the map to make sure there were no nurses
coming, ran
up the spiral stairs to the roof, and went to the side stairs down the balcony
near the
office with the equipment. From there, it's a simple matter to wait until the
nearby
nurse goes out on the balcony, and slip into Chakran's office.

After you take the nightvision and key, head north and grab the Doctor's
uniform. You
can move pretty freely in this disguise. Guards seem to get suspicious, but
never start
shooting. Nurses, however, you should still give a wide berth.

The easiest way to the basement is probably to go back to the roof, and use one
of the
spiral staircases again. Once here, grab a scalpel from one of the two offices.
You can
walk as close to guards as you like, as long as you act in a Doctor-ly fashion.
No
running, and no carrying obvious weapons. I guess you're supposed to use the
ventilation system to peek into the surgery rooms and find the one with the two
cult
members, which contains your target. However, if dressed as the Doctor, you can
literally just walk into each surgery room until you find them. EVERY time I've
played
this, they've been in the northwest room.

The challenge coming up is to get rid of those two cult guards, since taking out
the
target himself isn't exactly difficult.


THIRD CHALLENGE-        Like a surgeon
--------------------------------------
METHOD A-		plain and simple
Walk into the operating room, and move to the side so only one of the guards can
see
you, and the other has his back to you. Quickly draw your silenced pistol and
shoot the
guard facing you in the head. His friend will run to the body. Give him a
matching
head wound, and then plug the target. As long as nobody sees the bodies from the
hall,
you can pretty much just walk to the exit.


METHOD B-		simple, but not so plain
Go into the ventilation system, and shoot both cultists in the head through the
little
hole. You're practically guaranteed to get away with it, but shooting through
the hole
is surprisingly difficult, even in first person view. Once that's done, slip
into the
operating theatre and kill the target.


METHOD C-		cloak of darkness
Once you've established where the patient is, switch off the electricity in the
base-
ment. The turbaned bodyguards will pretty much ignore you, as long as you don't
bump
into them, but the two cultists in the operating theatre are a bigger problem.
Once the
lights go out, they start running about the place like maniacs, and if they see
you,
they'll open fire. Wait til they've run out of the basement, and run into the
operating
room. Quickly pull out your scalpel (or silenced pistol, whatever) and kill the
target.
Here's where it sometimes gets sticky. You have to make into one of the spiral
stair-
wells, and down the few steps to the door outside before either of the two
running
cultists find you. This is largely dependant on timing and luck, so I'm afraid I
don't
have any specific advice on getting by them.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
Use method A for insertion and method C for the kill. It's a disappointingly
easy
mission, all in all.


THE EASY WAY
------------
Method A, then method A. So why are all the easy missions at the end? The
russian and
japanese missions, and even mission 1 are all a lot harder than the last ones
have
been. Pretty disappointing.


LOOT
----
Uzi-            On many guards. If you got in without killing anyone, and you
used the
                scalpel on the target, you just plug a cultist on your way out
and grab
                one without endangering your SA rating.
R39 Sniper-     In the little temple. Wear a guard or cultist disguise if you
want to
                carry this thing off.
Scalpel-        In the two offices in the basement.





                         MISSION 19- ST. PETERSMURG REVISITED
=================================================================================
=====

Play this yourself until you figure out what's going on. There's no way I can
write a
faq for this mission without being spoilerific, and I HIGHLY recommend you
discover
this mission's twists for yourself.

Tips-
1. There is nowhere you can hide the body that it won't be eventually found.
2. He walks back and forth between two possible locations, maybe more. How you
approach
the mission is going to depend greatly on where he is. Put the ability to move
while
using binoculars to good use.
3. After the spit hits the fan, you will need a disguise of some type, although
none
will work very well for very long.
4. In case you haven't already, try getting the sniper rifle to the ammo drop,
and
shoot something. Blanks! The bastards gave us BLANKS!
5. I've heard that the cut scene costs you time, but can't really verify that.
It
would make sense, considering that's usually how cut scenes work. You should
definitely
watch it once though.
6. Some people report being able to pick weapons for this mission. I always get
stuck
with just the wire.


FIRST CHALLENGE-        Spoiler city
------------------------------------
As I said, our friend loads in two places. One is watching over the front
entrance,
and one is looking out the right side of the building. Find out which one he's
in using
the binoculars, and make your way to the front door of the building while
staying out
of that line of fire. WALK up the stairs, and into the room with "Sergei." If
the
sniper is covering the front of the building, sneak through the front rooms
toward him,
and throttle him with the wire. It's super-easy to do if he's in this front
position.

If he's in the other spot, you're in for more of a challenge. I'd still advise
going
through the front rooms to get to him, since he seems to be more alert on his
left
than his right, but it's still a pretty simple affair to sneak up and wire him.
Just
remember to start sneaking at least a room away.

The thing to remember is that he keeps moving around, so if he keeps turning and
seeing
you as you sneak up, it's because it's time for him to move to a new spot, so
restore
a game and wait til he's done. It's also important that he hasn't seen you yet.
If you
got sniped at, restore.


SECOND CHALLENGE-       The safety of the sewers
------------------------------------------------
METHOD A-		run, hitman, run
The instant the corpse hits the floor, skip the cut scene, and grab his clothes
and
rifle, and RUN for the nearest sewer entrance. If you are very fast and lucky,
you can
make it past the first guard in that sewer before the alerts goes up, and you're
golden. Run toward the exit tunnel.

There'll be a guard facing you, guarding this last tunnel, but he doesn't seem
to be
too swift on the uptake. As long as you aren't already dodging bullets, and only
walk,
and stay as far from him as possible, it's possible to slip into the exit tunnel
with-
out him causing a fuss. From here, you just have to pick the lock, and slip by
the
remaining two guys when they're both looking the other way.


METHOD B- 		a suspicious clone
Quickly grab the clothes and rifle, and run for the southernmost sewer entrance.
It's
the one in the middle of the road by the water. The alert will probably go up
before
you get in there, but nobody can see you, so it's no big deal. Proceed down the
tunnel,
and start sneaking at the end. You'll notice the guard here isn't looking right
at you.
As long as you sneak, and stick to the far side of the tunnel, you can sneak
around
behind him with no worries. Wire him, or drug him, if the mission let you pick
weapons.

Take his clothes, and run toward the backdoor to the metro.

There'll be a guard facing you, guarding this last tunnel, but he doesn't seem
to be
too swift on the uptake. As long as you aren't already dodging bullets, and only
walk,
and stay as far from him as possible, it's possible to slip into the exit tunnel
with-
out him causing a fuss. From here, you just have to pick the lock, and slip by
the
remaining two guys when they're both looking the other way.


METHOD C-		planning ahead
Take out a bodyguard BEFORE you kill the clone. There's two good spots to do
this. The
first is the lone guard who patrols in the southwest area of the map. If you
hide in
the truck near the second agency drop, crouching behind a box on the left, you
can jump
out and wire him when he stops there. Drag him around behind the truck.

The other spot is the northern back door to the apartment complex. There's two
guards
who stop right outside of that door. Wait until one walks away, and wire the
other one.
Drag his body inside, and up the stairs.

In either case, don't take their clothes yet. Once you have the clone dead, take
his
clothes and the rifle, and run to the dead guard. NOW take the guards clothes,
and drop
the rifle. It's sort of unpredictable how well this disguise works, but it will
work
much better than your own suit, or the clone's suit after his body has been
found. You
should be able to make it out as long as you give the other guards a wide berth,
and
don't draw attention to yourself.


METHOD D-		did I say nowhere?
There IS a spot you can stash the body with impunity, but it's unreliable, and
only
works if you kill the clone in the front room. Quickly skip the cut scene and
change
clothes, leaving the rifle for now. Drag the body to the room with the cardboard
Sergei
and drag it around between the table and the windows. The idea here, is to
position the
body so that you can't see it from the stairway door, because the table top is
in the
way. I can't get this to work consistently (sometimes an arm sticks out) but if
it does
work, the rest of the mission becomes a cake-walk.


SILENT ASSASSIN
---------------
To get SA on this mission, you have to do a very simple thing; not be shot at.
Once I
finished with 1 kill, and 1 alert, but got professional because people chased
me.
Another time I got 2 kills and 1 alert, but got Silent Assassin because nobody
fired a
shot. Method B is by far the most reliable means of escaping quietly. Also of
note; the
clone counts as an enemy killed, since he's not the original target.


THE EASY WAY
------------
Alas, there really isn't one. I guess if you take the time to snuff a bodyguard
ala
method C, you can shoot cloney in the back of the head, but that will bring
people
running too fast.


LOOT
----
W2000 sniper-   17 has it. It's perfectly easy to get out with, because it
serves as
                part of your disguise.
SP12-           Some guards have it.





                           MISSION 20- REDEMPTION AT GONTRANO
=================================================================================
=====

Okay, this is it. You've got 21 highly alert, heavily armed, strategically
located
enemies to deal with, and you start with little more than a piece of string.
There's no
ratings per se, but I can show you how to do this mission without ever being
shot at,
which is about as stealthy as it's going to get.

Tips-
1. Remember that when you release the crouch button, you'll stand straight up,
even if
you were sneaking before the crouch.
2. You can't shoot through the holes in the railing, but neither can the bad
guys.
3. Despite peering through scopes, the snipers on this level have really good
peripheral vision.
4. The first two guys are the hardest part of the mission.
5. All the guards with sniper rifles seem to stay pretty much put unless they
see you
or a gunfight breaks out. They don't run to check on fallen friends or anything
like
that.
6. Most of the guys inside the church have very powerful weapons that can kill
you in
one hit, but if you follow my guide, you'll never even be in danger of being
shot at.


FIRST CHALLENGE-        Reaching the shed
-----------------------------------------
METHOD A-		like a shadow
Wait for the two guards in the first area to get around the corner (heading
north) and
run over there. If you keep the pillar between you and them, they won't see you.
Once
they turn back to the north, sneak out behind them, then veer right to the
grassy
region, and tuck yourself into the inside corner of the northeastern inner wall.
The
ledge here will prevent you from standing up, so you can let go of the duck
button and
relax. Neither guard will ever spot you here.

After the fast-walking guard makes his second pass, sneak out behind the slower
guard
as he's moving south. Bring out your wire, and hold down the button to prepare
it. You
should catch up with him JUST as he's about to stop and turn around. Drop the
wire
around his neck and choke him down. Grab his gun, and quickly drag him northeast
onto
the grass. By now, the fast guard is probably coming this way along the south
part of
the map. Keep hidden from him behind a wall or pillar. He doesn't look around
nearly as
much as his buddy, and he'll never find the body if you tuck it into the inside
corner
of the southeast inner wall.

Now you've got two choices. You either ambush this guy in the southwest corner
of the
map and shoot him with the 9mm, or you can come back later when you have a
silenced
version. If you do choose to ambush him, make sure you drop him in one hit to
the face,
so that he doesn't get a shot off.

Once he's either dead or not paying attention, sneak to southern end of the
double
doors through to the garden. When the guard on the other side passes you, open
the
doors and sneak up behind him, preparing your wire as you do. You should catch
up with
him just as he's about to stop and turn around. Once he's dead, drop down off
the
southern end of this ledge. If you do it while sneaking, it won't make a sound.
Edge up
to the corner, and when the nearby guard turns away, sneak out behind him,
preparing
your wire as you do so. Again, you'll reach him just as he's about to turn
around.

Run to the shed, using the well and trees as cover, and you should make it
without the
sniper getting a shot off.


METHOD B-		like a noisy shadow
Wait for the two guards in the first area to get around the corner (heading
north) and
run over there. If you keep the pillar between you and them, they won't see you.
Once
they turn back to the north, sneak out behind them and open the double doors.
More than
likely, you won't make it through this door without being spotted, so run to the
shed,
staying to the right of the well and any available trees, so that the sniper
can't see
you. Once in the shed, grab something like the M60 or SMG. Spray each guy as
they come
to the door. There should be five in total; the 2 from the front area, the 2
from the
back yard, and the one from the basement that heard the noise. These guys are
all armed
with 9mm pistols, so you should be able to do this without getting too badly
injured.


SECOND CHALLENGE-       killing many, many people
----
Grab the custom sniper rifle (or whichever rifle) off the wall, and crouch to
the left
of the window. Bring up the sniper scope, find your adversary through the
window, and
take him down. Don't forget to go back to the beginning and kill the guard out
front, if
you left him alive. 5 down.

Drop the rifle, and grab the silenced 9mm, some pistol ammo, your knife of
choice, and
the crossbow. Yes, I said crossbow. Don't forget to grab all your bolts, and a
little
extra sniper ammo wouldn't hurt.

Head out and sneak into the main basement door. Unless you caused a fuss,
there'll be a
guard patrolling here. You can either sneak up behind him and knife him right as
he's
about to turn around, or plug him with the silenced pistol. Once he's dead, pick
the
lock on the far door, and grab the church key. Head back out.

Slip between the nearby shed and the wall, and you'll find the secret passageway
to the
eastern stairs. Once you're in, start sneaking. Go through the left hand door to
find a
guard with his back to you. Slit him up a treat. Around the corner, you'll find
another
guard facing the wrong way. Knife him, too. 8 down.

Creep up the stairs, and you'll find two doors. The one on the right leads to a
couple
of snipers, and almost immediate detection. Open the other door, and line up the
two
heads so they're on top of each other, then quickly shoot both guards in the
head with
one shot each from the silenced pistol.

Duck, and head out onto the balcony. Move as close as you can to the front
railing.
Sometimes it helps to just tap the button to move, rather than hold it down, to
prevent
being spotted by the remaining snipers. Once safely through the door on the
other side,
sneak down the stairs a bit, until you can see the guard at the bottom. Bring up
first
person view to make sure you don't hit the railing, and shoot him in the head
with the
silenced pistol. 11 down.

Back up the stairs, and open the door on the left. You will see a guard with his
back
to you, but you cannot knife him without being spotted, so shoot him in the back
of the
head with the silenced pistol. When he's done with his dramatic slo-mo death
slump,
edge forward in sneak mode until you go up on the very first step. Any higher,
and
you're sniper fodder. Bring up the crossbow's sniper view, and you should be
able to
just barely see the top of the next sniper's head above the railing. If you
can't, you
aren't on that one first step yet. You don't want to be able to see any more
than the
very top of his head, or else he'll spot you. When you've got the proper shot,
snipe
him. 13 down.

Crouch, and move out onto the balcony to the first corner. While still
crouching, bring
up the crossbow's sniper view again. If you back a little bit away from the
railing,
you should be able to get a shot at the sniper across the way, facing north on
the
other balcony. Put a bolt through his head. Still in a crouch, move north along
the
balcony to the far end. While STILL crouching, bring up the sniper scope on the
crossbow again, and try to get a similar shot on the last remaining balcony
sniper. Or,
if you'd prefer, take the u-shaped passage and come up behind him, and shoot him
in the
back of the head with the silenced pistol. 15 down.

Go back to the eastern stairwell, and go down the stairs. Open the door out to
the
church, and you'll see yet another guard with his back to you. Creep up behind
him and
knife him. Now it's time to go back to the balcony.

There are 5 guys remaining on the church floor, 4 on the right, and 1 on the
left. Go
to the northern end of the eastern balcony, and, from a sneaking position, line
up a
shot at the head of the southernmost guard on the eastern side. Be sure none of
the
other guards can see you, and pull the trigger. If you move out a little to the
right,
you can get a shot at one of the two guys who are standing directly under the
balcony.
Be aware that the remaining one will move around a bit after you kill his
friend, so be
sure that you're safely hidden. 18 down.

Move south about halfway down the balcony, and you should be able to find a nice
shot
at the guy behind the pillar on the other side of the church. Once he's down,
sneak
through the u-shaped passage to the other balcony. From the northern end of this
balcony, you can line up a shot at the guy behind the pillar below. This just
leaves
one guard, who is a little bit tricky. He's most likely looking roughly in your
direction, but he's too far under the balcony to shoot him from anywhere but
here. Put
a pillar between you and him, and then bring up the sniper scope, and slowly
move
around until you can just barely see his head. Take your shot. 21 down.
Objective
complete.


THIRD CHALLENGE-        Endgame
-------------------------------
Grab a custom rifle. There's plenty lying around. From the eastern balcony,
sneak, and
line up a shot on the heart picture in the confessional. Shoot it, and Sergei
will come
charging out. Quickly pop him in head (or twice in the body) to end the game.
