I try to keep casualties at a minimum, so my guide explains in detail all the
you have for doing so. However, there are certain parts of both Splinter Cel
where combat is unavoidable, and if you try to get through those parts without
anybody, you'll be in for a frustrating time. Don't fight the game. However, I
feel that you don't need my help to just kill everybody, so I'm really
on the stealth here.
1. Movement speed-
The great thing about playing this game on the PC (aside from the infinitely
superior graphics) is the precise control the mouse wheel gives us over Sam's
movement. I can tell you to move at "2 clicks" instead of just saying, "move
slowly." In general, 0 clicks (slowest possible) is only neccesary when moving
on noisy terrain, such as over glass or through water. 1 click faster will
always work for sneaking across normal terrain, but is really only neccesary
when you are sneaking behind someone. 2 clicks is safe if you are more than 3
or 4 feet away from an enemy.
2. The diagonal bug-
This is important. If you push two movement buttons at once, like forward and
right to move diagonally, Sam will move 1 click faster than he would if you
only pushed one button. This can get you into trouble sometimes. I don't know
if this is a problem on console versions. I'm guessing not.
3. Standing vs. Crouching-
There's not much to say here. Always crouch unless you NEED to stand. Sam can
move pretty fast while crouched, so there's no reason not to.
4. Body hiding-
Illumination is the most important part of hiding bodies. You can leave them
right in the middle of a hall if you want, as long as they're in the dark.
Conversely, stuff them behind a box in a well lit, out-of-the-way closet, and
somebody will find them.
5. Stealth firing-
Sam's guns are very quiet. Enemies are more likely to hear the sound of impact
than the report of the shot. One subtlty many people miss is that enemies can
see your MUZZLE FLASHES in the dark.
6. Throwing things-
If you throw an object to distract an enemy, they will investigate where they
first SAW the object, not neccesarily when it landed. This is why it's import-
ant to throw things so they don't see it.
This is my weapon of choice for thinning out crowds. You can grab people when
other enemies are as close as 6 feet, and they don't hear. You can drag
conscious enemies much faster than you can move bodies, so you can safely move
your victim away from prying ears before dropping him.
This move is pretty disappointing. Enemies seem to be able to hit you pretty
well behind a hostage. I've had enemies KILL me while apparently NOT killing
my shield. Use it if you need to, but don't expect it to save you from all
damage. It's best used when you need to quickly take out 2 guys, and you can
only stealth one of them.
The magic elbow-
Sam has mastered the art of bonking people with his elbow. If done from the
back, it will knock the victim out every time. If done from the front or side,
the first hit will stun the enemy, and the 2nd will drop them. Sometimes, in a
pinch, a frontal double bonk will be the best available way to take out an
enemy. If you can do it without getting shot, and without any other guards
hearing the partial scream the victim emits before being stunned, then go for
The drop attack-
This seems a little less reliable than it used to be. I keep sliding backwards
off of people.
The pistol fires 9mm ammo at subsonic speed, so it's pretty weak. Don't bother
using it for anything other than a headshot. The alternate fire brings out the
laser sight, which makes the gun MUCH more accurate, but tends to attract
attention. Only use the laser if enemies are facing away from you, or at the
last second before you fire. I have had success switching it on in an enemy's
face and firing a split-second later. They die before they get to finish their
yell, so nobody is the wiser.
Also, surprisingly weak. Go for headshots whenever possible. Mostly useful for
sniping. The full-auto mode works pretty well if you get into a fight, but Sam
has only 2 clips of ammo, so conserve your fire.
BZZZZZZT! Probably the most reliable projectile in the game, in that anywhere
you hit will knock the enemy out. As with all the secondary projectiles,
there's substantial drop over distance. Aim high.
These work sort of like the elbow; one good hit can knock a foe out, but one
bad hit will stun him, and a 2nd will knock him out. The trouble is, because
of the drop when fired, it's hard to get a headshot on foes who are any real
Teehee! I LOVE these things. They're my weapon of choice for crowd clearing.
You DO have to lure the enemies pretty close in order for the gas to knock
I find these useless. They just bounce too damn much. They actually emit
knock-out gas, not just regular smoke. Don't try to use them to hide from
enemies, because they don't do that.
There are few places in this game where these are useful, but they work pretty
well if you can actually put them where you need them. The lethal radius is
smaller than you might think, but enemies don't seem to think to run away from
grenades like in other games.
Since the game doesn't bother telling you, I will; You can disarm these by
pressing the action button when the light is green. They don't trigger off
slow movement, and they tend to miss people who run, so they have limited use-
fulness, and are mostly an annoyance.
As many are unaware, you can knock out enemies with bottles. Hit them in the
head, and be fairly close when you do it. If you hit them too gently, they'll
only be temporarily stunned.
MISSION 1- American Embasy in Timor
1. Smoke may conceal you, but fire is VERY BRIGHT.
2. Broken glass is very noisy if you walk on it.

Part 1- The Basics
If you need me to guide you through the first part of this, you probably pirated
game and I have no sympathy for you. If you have the manual, read it, and check
little hint panels throughout the level. The only place I had trouble is when
is telling you about how to press up against walls. When it says this, you are
to press up against the fence furthest from you when you enter, and squeeze
and the nearby building.
You will then come to your first guard. What the game wants you to do is use the
turn" (or as I like to call it, "The Squatting Ballerina Turn") to move to the
side of the fence, then shoot out the lantern. Once you've done that, it's a
matter to either elbow the guard into next week, or just sneak past him.
Alternatively, you can just sneak up behind him and grab him or elbow him
wasting a bullet. Just make sure the body is in shadow when you leave.
Turn on your thermos as soon as the game hints for you to do so, and bypass the
clutch of mines by crawling under the nearby deck, and the second by climbing up
box on the left and shimmying along the rail.
In the next section, keep an eye on the guard on the right. You can whistle to
him, the hide by the truck, and bonk-ify him, or simply be careful and move
bridge, avoiding him entirely. Whatever you do, don't drag his body into the
He will drown, and YOU will be blamed.
Next, the game will want you to interogate a guard. Do so, and drag him back and
the left while he's talking. Drop him in the shadows, and wait for his friend to
and look for him. Eventually the friend will go back inside his hut, where he
with his back to the door. Feel free to knock him out if you want.
You can advance to the next part by either climbing the pipe, or doing the
jump trick midway in the alley.
Part 2- An Old Friend
Climb up the scaffolds the obvious way, then say Hi to Mr. Learning Curve! You
crouch and press against the wall to pass under the window with the guard with
binoculars. Continue on, whether or not you wait for Sadono to finish his talk,
careful to avoid the broken glass. Press against the wall and use the Ballerina
to pass the doorway, if Sadono is still in it.
Once you climb around the edge of the building, drop in front of the window,
and open it to sneak inside. You can also keep climbing around to a balcony, but

and try to sneak down the corridor behind him, be advised he does OCCASIONALLY

room, but if you're trying to avoid disturbing any enemies, the other path is

right through here to the next room, or you can lay out the guard since he's not
facing you, and never moves. Just be careful of the glass. As always, be sure to
the body if you decide to drop him.
Part 3- Downstairs
Downstairs there are 3 guards. It's quite tricky to keep track of the patrolling
since the smoke blocks your sight and nightvision, and the fire obscures
ics. I find this room much easier if you shoot out the chandelier at the top of
stairs on your way down.
Once downstairs, the patrolling guard will probably be standing with his back to
but will move away too quickly for you to get him. If you want to see some
screwed up object physics, try shooting the chandelier in the middle of this

If you're trying to be uber-stealthy, go to the far, right side of the room, and
between the wall and the bar. Follow the patroller, staying very close to the

too much light in this room to have that many eyes searching for you.
Alternatively, you can take out the first guard. Make sure you shoot the light

Solomon Grundy would be proud. Of course, whistling and throwing the bottle into
dark corner work too, but why risk alerting multiple guards when he so kindly
his back for bonking?
Now, you're in the far, right corner of the room. The easiest way to pass is to
out the nearest light. The guards will be alerted, and will look around, but
they don't even look in the right direction. Alternatively, you can throw the
back toward the stairs, then use the Squatting Balerina Turn to pass between the
few pillars and that little chest of drawers.
If you really want to knock these guys out, it can be done. I threw a bottle at
from the shadows, and his friend saw the bottle, but not me. Oddly enough, he
wake his friend, or raise the alarm, but rather came to investigate. Once he was
the shadows with me, I introduced him to Mr. Elbow.
Part 4- Blinded by the light
Walk forward until you hear Lambert's speech about the searchlight. What the
wants you to do hear is to sneak through the courtyard, staying in the center of
searchlights. They move slowly enough, so it's not that hard.
There is another way, however. After you hear Lambert's speech, pull out your

After you talk to the translater, you can shoot the balcony guard if you like,
then make your exit. You can either go back down the stairs to the back door, or
the window and rappel down the building.
Part 5- Ladders and lanterns
Now that you can kill people, you probably don't need much help getting through
rest of the mission. Wait in the shadows until the guards come close, and use
laser sight to headshot them.
If you want to leave them alive, you'll have to shoot some lights instead. Start

Once around, shoot the lantern on the tower, climb it, and disable the

bypass him when he does that.

Feeling merciful? He'll start walking towards your position. Sneak past him on

Shoot the wheel handles to put out the fire.
Part 2- The basement
The guard in the next room usually starts right by the door, and will
if it opens when he's close. Luckily, it's so dark he won't be able to see you,
you can just slink right by him, or bonk him in the face.

alerted, the guards will notice you in here despite there being no possible line

still alive. Open the door, and it will shield you from him, and as soon as you

Part 3- Of servers and searchlights
Immediately around the corner, you'll find three guys shooting at God knows
When finished, two leave and one patrols the hall. The easiest thing to do is
against the wall, lean out, and shoot him in the face. There are a couple ways

Take out the guard in the hall in the manner of your choosing. Now go to the
window, and shoot out all the lights in the room o' cameras. You have to make
your shots go between the two sets of blinds. You CANNOT fire though gaps

Once the lights are out, go through the door on the left, and you should see a

take him out, or avoid him. Both should be easy, since it's so dark in there.

**METHOD B- Die, guards, die!

grenade like in Raven Shield. Just opening the door and quickly shooting both in

Now that the camera-monitoring guard is dead, it won't count against you when
cameras spot you. The alarm will sound, but nobody seems to care, and it doesn't

**METHOD c- Squeaky clean
As soon as the first guard in the hall turns away, sneak over to the right hand
and use a disposable pick. If you're REALLY feeling studly, try picking it by

server room. Once it's out, use the cable on the door to see which way the
camera is facing. The camera CAN spot your optic cable if you don't shoot out

little care, you can make it to the computer you need without being spotted,
you're under the blind spot of most of the cameras, and in decent shadow. On
back out, just make sure the central camera is facing away from you.
Alternatively, you can shoot out the central camera, but that tends to
bring a guard, and it's hard to time, especially because that damn camera SEES

to face the other way before darting up the stairs.
Part 4- Lobby and beyond
The lobby is pretty easy. Just beware that there is a guard on the far side of
room who is somewhat hard to see. As soon as you open the door, start sneaking
the left, and hide in the shadows near the 2 couches. One guard will check his
and the other will walk into the hall in the back.
The easy path is probably to grab the email guard, and use him as a shield while
shoot the other.
The sneaky way is to wait until the further guard turns toward the back hall,
out to the computer. Use it while he either looks out the front door, or checks
corpse. Now sneak into the shadows over by the left hand couches, and move back
the phone. Eventually, the guard in the hall will reemerge and head over to the
left side of the room. As he does this, the other one will go back to the

rings as you pass it. You can avoid this by shooting the phone earlier, but it's
to do that without being heard. If you just wait for a bit in the first pool of

The easiest way through the lobby, of course, is to just remember the code from
prior game and sneak straight to the keypad. It's sort of cheating, but it's
you get to pretend Sam is psychic.
After the brain room, you'll be in a freezy area, and will need to use your
goggles to see. The guard here faces away from you, so you can really have your
way with him if you want, including turning off the enemy-friendly recognition
auto-turret, and letting it mow him down. There's no need, however. Just walk by
for maximum imaginary stealth points.
In the next room, the easy way is probably to shoot out the light above you,

a stealthier option, hop off the ledge to the left of the door, and shimmy your
the other end. Be sure to dodge the spurts of Freezy-Gas (tm) on your way. The
thing is, the guards hear you shimmying. They'll start looking around, and you
just dangle from the ledge until both walk back past you to the right, into the
you just crossed. Once, they both managed to set off the wall mine in the next
while searching for me. Way to go, guys!
Speaking of wall mines, either sneak past it or disarm it, and head into the
where you're looking for a bookshelf on the right-hand wall. There's an opening
roof above, so climb up to it.
Alas, these three guys HAVE to die. Eventually, you will have to shoot the
behind them to shut off the Freezy-Gas so you can escape, and that WILL kill
even if you knock them out previously with a smoke grenade or diversion camera.
Anyway, since they have to die, they might as well die as cheaply as possible,
wait and get them later. Visit Francois, and then, when the timer starts, climb
into the vent and shoot the now-steaming handle behind them on the left. You can
make your escape.
The only other option, if you can call it that, is to go back through the vent
prior room. You can escape the explosion in here. The three terrorists will run
meaning that you avoid killing or knocking them out, but Francois will die and
will yell at you. Technically, it means less kills, if you're trying to minimize
but I think killing 1 innocent is a LOT sloppier than killing 3 terrorists. Take
pick. It doesn't seem to have an affect on gameplay.
The only people I had to kill/KO were the two guys destroying computers, and
at the end.
MISSION 3- Paris-Nice Train
1. Don't try jumping when on the roof of the train.
2. Innocents can be a real pain here. They won't pooch the mission, but they
often scream so loud the enemies will hear.

It doesn't matter whether you hop down through the hatches, or crawl all the way

seems to care. Well, except the dog.

The trick to getting through clean involves an easy-to-miss space in the center
central shelving unit which Sam can hide in. If you approach it from the right,
can generally get there without being seen.
The conductor walks between 3 points. Two of them face you, and one faces the
maker to the right. When he starts walking over there, sneak out of your cubby
and go through the hatch. Timing is tough, because it takes Sam so damn long to
down, so wait a little while before celebrating your success. Once done climbing
the pipe, use the optic cable to make sure the coast is clear and climb up. I
shoot out the light in this room, but, as you may have noticed, I like shooting
in general. If you wait a while, for the NPCs to finish their chat, you
to, but it does increase your margin for error.
There's two ways to do the next part-

Use the switch to unlock the side doors, and then exit this room. Turn left and

Following her becomes a bit trickier, since we haven't had a chance to clear
hall yet, and she doesn't seem to want to talk to the guards for you. Get to the
double doors before she does, and open the left one. Quickly shoot out the three
lights. You should be able to scurry down the hall past the guards before they

All the METHOD B technigues for clearing the room involve being in THIS
Once inside, you'll see Sadono and 4 guards, a ton of lights, and a moving
Of all the spots in the room, I found those desribed above to be the best. Some
these strategies work from other locations, but not nearly as well.
These options are available if you're in the spot mentioned in Method A above:

Of all the options, it's probably the safest. Very little can go wrong, and I

nearest guards. Alternatively, toss a flare, flash bang or grenade JUST past
they all approach, before you grab Sadono. The two guards will stop, but Sadono
keep walking. This way, you can distract, stun or even blow up the two
while grabbing Sadono. You will most likely have to shoot the remaining two
while using Sadono as a shield.
This is probably the method to use if you have trouble running up to Sadono and
bing him quickly.
These options are available if you're in the spot mentioned in Method B above:
**METHOD B-A Only those with gigantic grapefruits need apply
So, you're on the catwalk. You'll notice early on all the guards and Sadono near
center of the room. You know that flashbang you've been carrying the entire

I've found the guys in masks will shoot first, so go into shield mode and drop
when they make an appearance.
The other two will sometimes take potshots, but I've gone all the way out to the
copter without either of them firing. Play it by ear. The good news is, their
tance to shoot will make it really easy for you. Just go into shield mode, turn
laser, and start dropping bodies.
This is my absolute favorite way to do this room. This is some big, bold,
counter-terrorism right here my friends. This strategy works from the other spot
(or anywhere else for that matter) but it's harder to find prime real estate for
flashbang, and the guards seem more eager to shoot you. It's surprisingly easy
without being hit if done from the balcony.
**METHOD B-B What's one gunfight between friends?
From your perch, start sniping. The enemies will lean around the corner near the

easily. Eventually, Sadono will take up the same spot. Huck the flashbang at

It's a little blah, but it works. Use it if you're more comfortable shooting
than using the human shield technique or if you're out of shockers.
MISSION 8- LAX
1. There's projectile toys all over this mission. Usually in dark corners. You
need them though.
2. ANY alarm means mission over. If you see an innocent running for the alarm
quickly airfoil him, or be prepared to restore.
3. There's a couple times where I reccomend knocking a guy out, then shooting
later. Be advised that the hit-model gets really funny in these circumstances,
and it may take more than one head shot to kill them. You can check to see if
they're dead with the thermals.
4. Don't try to ride conveyers past any of the devices with the red lasers.

Part 1- Just for variety, Part 1 is infiltration
Climb over the fence in front of you, and slowly move forward, hugging the wall
left for some cover. A truck will appear. When it stops, get in the back. When
stops again, get out.
Too easy? Okay, screw the truck. Sneak behind it towards the shed area. When it

At not the next door, but the one after, use the optic cable and wait until the
moves further away from the door. Sneak inside.
Part 2- Of bags and baggage
There's two ways to go here;
**METHOD A- Gotta use the facilities
Before the maid gets a chance to leave the room, turn out the lights. The switch

eventually, the terrorist here will come stand with his back to you. Make a
check that the innocent won't see you, and grab the baddie and drag him into the
closest dark corner. Drill him in the head while he's asleep.
**METHOD B- Facilities be damned!
Turn out the lights AFTER the maid leaves the room. Sneak over to the other door
wait to the right of it. When the guard comes out, sneak through the door and
the next room. Creep forward and turn right into the shadows. Before long, the
terrorist in here will come stand with his back to you. Make a quick check that

shelving unit. In front of you, you'll see a carboard box, and some crates. You
should be directly opposite of where you grabbed the guy out of the chair.

space Sam can use to pass over the observer's window.
The next guy, I cannot figure a way past. He hears if you shoot the light, and
doesn't turn away long enough to creep by. Bring up your rifle and tag him with
choice on KO projectiles. Shoot the light above him, just to be safe.
Part 3- Above and beyond
The next part is deceptively easy. Turn left and press against the right-hand
railing. Whenever you come to a gap in the wall, do the Ninja Squat Turn. Sneak
the gap to the second walkway and resume turning. At the end, wait, and a

leave the room and go stand on the balcony. Now sneak through the dark stripe in
center of the room, then over to the door. Here, just sneak down the right-hand
escalator. There's another camera at the bottom. You might want to cam-jam it

the one on the left isn't looking, and cam-jam the other one as you make your

Part 4- The somewhat disappointing endgame
I don't know why, but this seemed a little tame after the end to the last
Anyhoo, shoot out the roof and cimb up. Sam can climb almost everything here,
only trick is that you need to hit crouch to fall backwards off the wires to
other wires. You're aiming for a crawl space just above the neighboring
