I. If you need help getting started.
*If you don't know what to do after yourintroductory briefing.
Before you leave the class room, familiarize yourself with options
available from this screen. Click on the chalkboard
and read the training topics. Click on one of the television sets to
access the SWAT team interviews. Click on the bulletin boards to
read department postings. When you've familiarized yourself with all
the elements in this room, exit by clicking on the door at the right
of the screen.
*If you've left the classroom after your introductory briefing and don't know
where to go.
You're supposed to be in small arms training. Click on the picture
of the Police Academy in the upper left of the screen to
access the weapons briefing screen. Use this screen to familiarize
yourself with your SWAT gear. When you are finished learning about
your gear, click on SELECT, then on the SWAT logo graphic
in the lower left of the screen. Choose small arms range from the
menu that appears.
II. If you need help with small arms or combat training.
If you need help with small arms training:
*If you don't know what gun to use.
Listen to the instructor. He will tell you what weapon and ammunition
are needed for the next drill.
*If you don't know how to load or reload your weapon.
Load your weapon by clicking the appropriate ammunition on it. Then
click on the weapon to make ready. The cursor will change to the gun
sight. If you need to reload, click the weapon in the inventory area.
Click the ammunition on the weapon, then click on the gun to
make ready. Don't worry, you can't run out of ammo during a drill!
*If you're using the MP5 and don't understand the settings.
The MP5 has three settings, the bottom one is "safety on". The
middle setting is "semi-automatic". This setting fires one bullet
at a time. To fire a continuous stream of bullets, choose the top
setting, "automatic". You can choose a setting by clicking on it,
then clicking outside the setting box to begin the drill. When the
instructor tells you to put the gut on safety, select the bottom
setting, then click outside the box.
*If you've loaded your gun and you don't know what to do.
Listen to the instructor. He will tell you what the drill is going
to be. When the whistle blows, perform the drill exactly as
instructed or face the wrath of your teacher!
*If this is your first time in small arms training and it seems to go on
Go somewhere else and practice there! Try combat or sniper
training. Once you've reached a certain level of proficiency in the
basics, you will receive a callup.
If you need help with combat training.
*If you can't access combat training.
You can't enter combat training until you have completed at least
one small arms drill. Once you've done some small arms training,
you will have access to combat training.
*If you don't know what weapon to use in combat training.
All combat training drills are performed with the Colt .45. You
will not need to change weapons during the training.
*If you need help with the Dozier drill.
Shoot at all five targets until they fall. To get through this drill
successfully, load your gun right before the drill starts so you don't
run out of ammo. Aim for the head of each target. As your aim gets
better, you should be able to complete this drill well under par
time and with only five shots.
*If you need help with the Presidente drill.
This drill takes some practice to perform smoothly. Load your gun
right before the drill starts. Moving from left to right or right to
left, mentally number the targets from one to three. When the drill
begins, aim at the circle on each target. Shoot target one once,
target two once, target three twice, then target two once and target
one once. Reload as quickly as possible, then repeat the
sequence. Practice will make you faster on this drill!
*If you need help on the Combat drill.
This is a fun drill! The drill will last for twenty seconds, but
there is no par time. Load your weapon before the drill starts. As
each target turns toward you, aim at it and fire. Reload your weapon
as necessary. Hit as many targets as possible in the twenty seconds.
III. If you need help with sniper training.
*If you keep getting turned away from sniper training.
You can't enter sniper training until you have completed at least one
small arms drill. Once you've done some small arms training, you will
have access to the sniper range.
*If you're having trouble making the zero shot.
Click on the rifle to bring up the targeting screen. If this is your
first time at the range, listen to Saunders' explanation of the
rifle's adjustment knobs. Do not make any adjustments to the rifle
settings before making the zero shot. Use your mouse to center the
rifle's crosshairs on the target. Load your weapon by clicking
the ammo from inventory on the rifle right below the sight. Fire by
clicking in the same place. After you fire the first time,
Saunders will tell you what adjustments to make. Continue to make
adjustments until you hit the targe
*If you want to qualify as a sniper.
After you've completed two separate training drills at the sniper
range, return to Metro. Pacmeyer will ask you if you want
to attempt to qualify as a sniper. Say yes! Go back to the sniper
range and take the test. If you fail, you must complete two
more training drills at the sniper range before you can take the
*If Pacmeyer never asks you if you want to qualify as a sniper.
You will need to talk to him about qualifying fairly early in the
game, as he will eventually get promoted and move out of D Platoon.
A good time to work on sniper training is right after your first
callup. This will catch Pacmeyer before he leaves. Use the Control
Panel button to set the Callups frequency to almost
nothing. This will give you the most time to practice before you are
called to a crisis.
IV. If you are at the Lucy Long callup.
*If you have just arrived at the callup site and don't know what to do.
When Pacmeyer asks you to question the Long's neighbor, go to where
the man with the rake is standing with the two police officers. Click
your arrow cursor on him to question him. You should also question
the two officers. Keep clicking on the officers and neighbor until
they start repeating themselves.
*If you have questioned the neighbor and the police officers and don't know what
to do next.
Go back to the SWAT van by clicking your arrow cursor on it. Click
on your SWAT team members to question them. Eventually Rooker will
call a briefing. Rooker will tell you what team you're assigned to,
and Pacmeyer will tell you what weapon and ammo to use. If you
have further questions, click on Rooker or Pacmeyer for more
information. If you have questions about your weapons or
ammo, take them from your inventory and click them on Pacmeyer.
He will give you further information on your weapons. Make sure you
load your weapon!
If you've been assigned to rear containment:

It's locked. Use the LASH to request "Ram one-two corner". Two
SWAT team members will ram the gate for you. Now, click the mirror
on the ivy wall. When you see that the backyard is clear, slice the
pie on that corner. Repeat these tactics until you see Lucy hiding
behind the maple tree. Use the suspect hand signal to warn your
team. If they ask, use the LASH to advise that she is unarmed. Click
the forward arrow once to approach Lucy. If she doesn't
respond, click the forward arrow again and she will surrender.
*If you see Lucy in the mirror with a gun.
Use the suspect hand signal to warn your team. Cover Wixell as
he approaches Lucy. If she tries to shoot Wixell, you must shoot her
before she can fire. This will end the scenario. You will be taken
off active duty while the shooting is investigated, but don't worry.
The investigation will determine that you did the right thing.
*If you see Lucy in the mirror, and she is unarmed.
Use the suspect hand signal to warn your team. Cover Wixell as
he requests, but don't shoot. He will take Lucy into custody.
If you've been assigned to rear guard, entry team:

arrow on Carmichael to move up on him. To follow the team into the
kitchen, slice the pie right on the door jamb, then slice the pie right
again on the kitchen cabinets to move deeper into the room. When
Pacmeyer again orders you to cover Carmichael, you'll move up
on him automatically. To leave the kitchen, slice the pie on the right
*If you're in the bedroom.
Pacmeyer will signal you to cover the door. Keep your sights on the
door and wait until Pacmeyer signals for you to move up and
cover the scout. When Carmichael signals that he sees the suspect in
the bathroom, Pacmeyer will instruct you to move in. Slice the
pie on the left side of the bathroom door, then slice right to move
further into the bathroom.
*If you're with the suspect in the bathroom.
Lucy is hiding behind the shower curtain. When she sees you, she
should come out. There is no need to shoot her, she's unarmed. Once
you have the suspect in custody, the scenario will end.
V. If you are at the Warehouse callup.
*If you've just arrived at the scene and don't know what to do.

sweep the area. When Pacmeyer orders you to cover right again,
click the right arrow.
*If you see the suspect with a hostage.
Click the right arrow to move in. Take your best shot at the suspect.

*If you've just arrived on the scene.
Rooker will tell you what's up and ask you to interview people.
First, click on Coco, the accountant, until she leaves.
Then, click on Andy until he leaves. This will give the necessary
information about the factory's layout.
*If you don't know what to say at the briefing.
Click on the greaseboard to tell the team what you learned from your
questioning. Rooker will ask you what kind of tactics
you think you should use. There is only one right answer! Choose a
stealth entry at side one, with highground cover at
corner one-four. Any other combination will result in tragedy.
*If you need help entering the building.
If you haven't already loaded your weapon, do so now. Transmit DOOR
OPEN on your LASH. Carmichael will try the door
and find that it's locked. Transmit BREACH DOOR. When Carmichael has
the tool and is ready, transmit INITIATE. When the door is open,
order Carmichael to mirror it. When you get the all clear, use the
LASH to order ENTRY TEAM A RIGHT and ENTRY TEAM B LEFT, then send
ENTRY TEAM A MOVE and ENTRY TEAM B MOVE. You will all move into the

Transmit FLASHBANG to Team A. After the explosion, slice the pie
right around the corner. Don't relax when you see the two militia
members surrender, another suspect will jump up and aim his gun

VII. If you are at the Eastman Enterprises callup as a sniper.
*If you just arrived at the scene.
If you have qualified as a sniper prior to this call up, you will be
assigned to the highground cover on the roof of an
adjoining building. When you're dismissed, you will accompany Saunders
up to the roof.
*If you are in position and need to calculate your settings.
Look through your rifle scope to see the flag on top of the Eastman
building. You can check the flag's angle against your dope book to
approximate wind velocity and direction. If this is your first time
through the Eastman scenario, Saunders will inform you that an 8
mile per hour cross wind is coming from the left. Using
the formula in your dope book, you calculate that you need to
compensate four clicks. Adjust your windage knob four
clicks to the right. Note that if you successfully complete this
scenario and come back later to play it again, the wind
velocity and direction will be randomly generated and different
every time. Use your dope book to calculate windage adjustments!
*If you see suspects in the windows.
Don't shoot until you see an armed suspect. When you see a suspect
with a gun in the window, Rooker will give you the okay to shoot.
Wait until you have a clear shot, then let him have it! If you
miss, the suspect will shoot the hostage. If you are successful,
the scenario will end. You will be suspended while the
shooting is investigated, but don't worry. You'll be reinstated and
back with your team very soon!
