I had planned to write something about the Borderlands series, but that will have to wait. I have something I need to get off my chest first. It's very personal, and I hope the two or three of you who follow my sparse blog will spare me this moment. I joked in my review for the bizarre...

1 INTRODUCTION
================================================================================


This is a walkthrough written for an efficient approach to finishing the single
player in BFBC while collecting all Gold and collectibles. While it is for both
consoles, there really isn't any reason to collect everything on PS3, so really
this is mainly for 360 players who want those lovely achievements. There isn't
necessarily a right way of playing BFBC,this is just the most time saving manner
in which to do so.
For any comments or questions my email is Maesir@REMOVETHISyahoo.com Remember to
put Battlefield or BFBC in the subject or i'll just treat it like spam and
delete it. :)

4 THINGS TO KEEP IN MIND
================================================================================

The grenade launcher attachment
------------------------------
For the purposes of this walkthrough, you will need an assault rifle at all
times The grenade launcher attachment is simply indispensible. For this reason
when I point out to collect a weapon, it is solely for the purpose of collecting
it. You should always pick up your assault rifle again. If you can get away
without one, I will specifically say so in the guide. Of course this is just
for the most efficient completist playthrough. Battlefield can be played
through in lots of ways and the change in weapons changes the game
drastically. You'll never be stuck if you don't keep the weapons I tell you
to, it just means you'll have to look around at the available resources a bit
more :)

Respawning
----------
It's a bit hard to get your head round after so many other single player
FPS games, but the Respawn mechanic can be really abused. It works exactly as
you'd expect from a Multiplayer game, so the level progression will be
untouched when you are respawned. This means if you can't get through a
section, just keep taking a running jump at it and you'll break through
eventually. It's also important to remember if you pass a checkpoint and
you're in a vehicle, the respawn will respawn the vehicle as well.

Directions
----------
I've used lefts and rights instead of cardinal directions based on the map.
These are always based on the direction you're going, so they should always
make sense. If you get lost, retrace your steps to figure out what I mean.

5.1 MISSION 1: WELCOME TO BAD COMPANY
================================================================================



------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Seize the Artillery ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: S20K, AEK271
Weapon Pickups : -
Gold: -

Once the cutscenes are over the game throws you into a tutorial. Proceed through
the tutorial and then gather at the smoke. Get into the jeep and drive up the
hill to the artillery site.Dump the jeep upon reaching the metal spikes blocking
the road. Get out and run down the hill to the cluster of houses. Three guards
here, kill them or run through. Behind the back house, a path leads around the
regroup at the smoke and then man the artillery gun to provide support for juno
company. The enemy come in three waves and don't pose much of a threat.Take them
out at your leisure -though if you're going for a speedy playthrough, aim half a
screens length infront of them to kill some while they are still travelling.With
that dealt with,head down the path and back up to the main road to find a newly
spawned jeep.

------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Operation Ram ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : -
Gold: -

Ignore the Vodnik and continue to your next objective along the road. When you
reach the house, jump out of the jeep. Knife the door and collect the XM8. Get
back in the jeep and drive down to the enemy base at the river for Objective Ram
Wait at the entrance of the base and use the mounted gun on the jeep to kill the
soldiers (fix the jeep with the power-tool you collected in the tutorial if it
gets too damaged) or just let your team mates kill them. With that done,
move the truck out of the way and drive right to the edge of the river and use
the mounted gun on the jeep again. Kill all the soldiers and ignore the BMD
light tank that arrives - an allied helicopter takes him out :) With the
enemy infantry dead,regroup at the smoke.

------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Operation Mustang ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : -
Gold: -

Drive straight to the next objective in the Vodnik. Eliminate the enemy, paying
particular attention to the mounter gunner in the barn roof, he can cause some
serious damage! Once they're dead another BMD light tank makes an appearance.
Collect the marked Rocket Launcher and kill it! It should take two shots, or one
shot plus a grenade round or two from your primary weapon.

------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Operation Impala ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : -
Gold: -

If you're playing on hard, kill the mounted gunners here as they can do some
serious damage very quickly. On Normal and Easy you should be able to use the C4
and blow up the AA guns by running in, destroying the targets, heal and run out.
Next is onto Operation Bronco.

------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Operation Bronco ¦

------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : -
Gold: -

Make sure you still have the C4 (you'll need it) Continue up the road the convoy
is lined up on in the Vodnik and follow it to the farm. Drive past the first
buildings and park at the crossroads. USe the mounted gun and shoot the red
boxes by the grain silo's and then the red boxes in the barn roof with
the mounted gunner. With them taken care of, eliminate the other enemies. An
additional objective is given to eliminate incoming reinforcements. Hot foot it
over to the bridge and just before it, lay down some C4 and stand back. It's
important that you don't plant is ON the bridge, do it just before. A vodnik
comes pelting over the bridge; just before it reaches it, set off the C4. One
down :D Repeat the process as a truck comes over. As the truck is exploding run
back to the road opposite the barn and silo (the one you used to get here)
and you'll see a truck coming at you. Drop some C4, get out of it's way and
blow it up. No sooner have you done this a tank will steam roller towards you.
Hide behind a building until it passes by and then stick it with the C4 and
blow it up. Nice and easy :)


------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Objective Taurus ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : -
Gold: -

Get in the vodnik, go across the bridge and tail the convoy. Not too close
though! The convoy will come under fire from artillery again. Get out of the
vodnik and run to the red smoke. When you regain control get back in the vodnik
(if it's too damaged go get another one from near the bridge) drive up the road
right up to the edge of the combat zone. Now turn left and head up the hill
towards the radar jammers. Use the Vodnik's mounted gun to take out the radar
jammers and then get out and regroup at the smoke. If the Vodnik is still okay,
use it, otherwise hotfoot it off to the right and head towards the objective
with no resistance.


================================================================================
5.2 MISSION 2: ACTA NON VERBA
================================================================================


------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Explore The House, ¦
¦ Clear the Soldiers and ¦
¦ regroup ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : -
Gold: 2

Smash open the door and enter the house. Collect the Gold inside to get your
first collectable Gold bar. Also collect the C4 laying around and head towards
the next objective to clear the enemy forces.There's two enemies walking down
the road, one inside the first house, three inside the tall house with the
stationary gun, one walking around the house and three down by the beach. Kill
them all. The second Gold bar in inside the house with the stationary gun
on the second floor. Collect it and regroup at the red smoke.

------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Objective Backfield ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : 870 MCS
Gold: 1

While this mission does offer some freedom in which objective to complete first,
it's actually better to listen to the sarge on this one. First though, grab
the vodnik on the right and drive along the river to reach a small enemy outpost
The 870MCS weapon pickup is next to the small shed and the next bar of Gold is
waiting in the middle of the construction works. Having gotten both, get into
the boat and sail across the river. Approach the Artillery base from the side,
opening its walls up using the grenade launcher attachment. Kill the two guards
at the side, head in and shoot the guards high and low at the far end of the
building. There should be another guard just over the boxes, kill him too.
Plant the C4 on the artillery and blow it all to smithereens. (Plant the C4
actually ON the artillery rather than on the floor near it, otherwise your just
gonna have to plant some more). With that done, leave the way you came in and
head across the river again to your next objective. Ignore the enemies and make
a straight climb up the hill to the wooden buildings at the side of the fuel
base. Blow a hole in them and enter the base. Killing here is optional, all you
really want to do as you approach the fuel base is aim high and use a grenade
to blow out the second floor walls and then follow it up with a second to take
out the fuel canisters up high on the right of the building. Then walk in and
fire a grenade at the big fuel contaniners on the ground floor and then look
to the left and fire a grenade at the fuel cannisters on the second floor
(have your targeter just at the top of the cannisters to hit them. With that
done turn around, leg it out and to the right to regroup at the smoke again
:)


------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Take out the Soldiers ¦
¦ on the bridge ¦
¦ Reach Zabrograd ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : -
Gold: -

Pick up the mortar strike and aim out of the window at the Vodniks. It should
take two strikes to elimatate all enemies on the bridge. With that done,
collect your C4 again and make your way across the destroyed bridge. Get into
the Vodnik at the side of the road and drive to the next regroup spot. You can
cut the first hairpin and drive along the road that passes under the hill to
avoid the enemies lurking in the ruins.

------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Obejctive Offside ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : -
Gold: 1

Head into the town via the main entrance. Be on the lookout for incoming rockets
as a direct hit will result in death. Gun down any immediate threats and use
your grenade launcher to take out the first two rocket turrets (Kornets). As
you approach the third down the road a BMD tank will make its way towards you.
Dive into a side street and as the BMD closes in, run out and plant some C4 on
it for a quick solution to your tank problem. Quickly take out the gunner on the
kornet and then fire another grenade up at it. This one can be a bit tricky
to hit, so if your not confidant with your grenade aiming skills, just head up
the house and take it out at close range. Head left to your final stationary
target. Refill your grenades as you approach and just fire them off from a
distance to deal with him. WIth the objective finished head towards the exit
near your next objective. But before you take the exit, head right and head
into the house with the balcony and the stationary gunner, this should be two
houses away from the exit. Head into the house and on the second floor you
should find the next bar of Gold :) Okay now blow a hole in the wall and make
your way to the smoke for the next objective.


------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Protect The Tanks ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : M249
Gold: 1

This objective can be a little tiresome as your forced to go at the pace of the
tanks and even if you rush on ahead, you have to wait for them catch up. You
might be tempted to grab the repair tool here, but trust me and stick with your
C4. As you start following/leading the tanks, the house on the right with the
enemy troops holds the M249 weapon pickup. If you already have it you can hop
in to one of the tanks and use thier machine guns to take out most of the enemy
here.Plus the tanks are far more resistant to damage when you are in them. About
half way the tanks stop and you're ambushed by BMD's. You can get out and blow
them up using your C4 if you want, but the friendly tanks make short work of
them anyway; just concentrate on the enemy troops in the back.As the tanks start
moving again, keep killing the enemies and quickly take care of the kornet in
the distance. If your tank gets low on health, hop out and jump into another one
If one or two of your tanks bites the dusk, its no big deal, but this is on
of the sections in the game where you can't respawn. Once the tanks reach their
destination head over the far left to this entrance into Zabograd,behind
the mausoleams to find another bar of Gold and your final for the level. Regroup
at the smoke with that done.


------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Destroy the Radio ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: AKS74u
Weapon Pickups : -
Gold: -

Head into the town behind the tanks. Ingnore the enemies and head to the house
directly right of the way you came into town. Plant three sticks of C4 near the
corner of the house by the door and just outside of the door. Remember,press
Square (or X on 360) to lay another C4 without blowing up the first) Now turn a
round and head back and to the left. There's a L shaped fence back here. Plant
the rest of your C4 here. With those preperations made arm your gun and head
to the house that has your objective. Kill the numerous guards outside.
Pickup and drop the AKS74u - it's carried by the specialists, the enemies with
the black ski masks. Head up into the house and destroy the radio equipment.
Then head back out to regroup at the smoke.

------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Groundhog Down ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : -
Gold: -

Start heading towards the opposite side of town. As you near the fountain, get
out your C4 and set it off. This should hopefully completly destroy the first
wave of enemies that are supposed to rush at you :) Now refill your C4 and gun
down any stragglers. There will be a vodnik at some point, use the C4 or rocket
launcher to take it out. Two soldiers will spawn inside houses infront of the
tank, they won't come down, so your gonna have to go kill them personally. With
the first waves taken care of you should get a checkpoint save. At this point,
run over to the entrance opposite the downed tank and plant the C4 at the
archway. A BMD will trundle over soon, set off the C4 and destroy him. As he
explodes throw another C4 at the trailing Vodnik and blow him up too. A few
infantry later and the enemy threat is over. Regroup at the smoke.

------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Reach The Harbour ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : SCAR
Gold: -

Get into the Jeep and drive until you hit a roadblock. Climb up the hill to the
regroup smoke. After the cutscene, head back and the right to pick up and drop
the SCAR. Now run at the Harbour, with a well timed running jump, you should be
able to leap the walls. If not, blow them open and run for the warehouse where
the end cutscene will kick in and kill all the mercs :P




================================================================================
5.3 MISSION 3: CROSSING OVER
================================================================================

------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Saving Private Haggard ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : SPAS12
Gold: -

This looks hard when the level starts, but it's far easier than that. Run
straight down and keep to the right of the main road, chopping fences with your
trusty knife.One of the houses just before the river has the SPAS12, so get that
and drop it and quickly run across the river and up the other side, healing
when necessary. Run past the guard houses, straight to Haggard - this neatly
sidesteps all the guard towers and the Heavy Tank. :)

------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Destroy the Antennas ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: SV98
Weapon Pickups : AN94, XM8C
Gold: 2

Continue along the road (wait for the combat zone to expand) and get to the
road block. Here you'll find the XM8c Weapon pickup and a bar of Gold. Collect
both and head straight for the antenna. Cut or blow open the fencing and then
fire a grenade at the box at the foot of the antenna to disable it. (Not quite
as impressive as disabling the Antenna in COD4 eh? ;) The next antenna will be
marked on your map, so follow the road towards it. As you head that way there
is a hut on the right with a sniper inside. Kill the sniper and collect and
drop his SV98 if you haven't already and then pick up the AN94 in the same
house and drop it. With that done, leg it to the next antenna. Jus t be careful
of the occasional snipers. Stay to the left as you approach the second antenna
to avoid the base and blow it up as you did with the first. Immedietly head
down the hill towards the big barn to start making your way to the next
antenna. But first, hop into the AA gun to take out the helicopter that appears.
With the helicopter downed, head into the barn's basement to retrieve your next
bar of Gold. Go into the barn and collect the repair tool before hopping into
the Vodnik and speeding to the last antenna. Drive straight through the enemy
forces and blow up the third antenna. Don't worry about the angry enemy - in a
moment the red smoke appears and you can use it to escape them :D

------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Get to the Harbour ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : MG36
Gold: 1

I know what your thinking...but don't hop into the tank. Get into the vodnik and
start making your way to the harbour. Stick to the right of the road and you'll
come across a house with an empty tank and a weapon pickup. Hop out of the
Vodnik, kill the occupants of the house and collect the MG36 (you can stick
with this weapon if you like, it's pretty good and you don't really need the
grenade attachment for the rest of this level). Collect the Gold bar in the
house and then hop into the Tank. Drive straight to the harbour (use the
repair tool if you take too much damage -respawning puts you right back at the
thrid antenna) Regroup at the smoke at the harbour entrance.

------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Get to the Trucks ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : SVU
Gold: 2

Run down and stick to the right.Climb up the pipes in the water and take out the
soldier in the guard lookout tower and proceed forward. A Vodnik intercepts you
at the road, take out the gunner and the driver. Repair the vodnik and drive it
down the road to the left. Climb up the stairs and then face back out of the
harbour. There's a group of contaniners here and your aim is to leap over the
railing and onto them. Do a running jump to make it easier. The next Gold bar
is on top of the containers. Get back into the vodnik and drive back the way
you came and around further into the harbour. After the next bend you'll see an
enemy vodnik approaching from the right. Drive past him to go where he
came from to reach the regroup smoke. As you regain control head right along
the high ground and then jump off after the big buildings, continue in that
direction and you'll reach two wooden shacks. Go into the one with the Acta Non
Verba sign to collect the last Gold bar for the level. Head back the way you
came, the second large warehouse building has the SVU pickup, so get it and drop
it. Now kill the Vodnik gunner, repair the vodnik and drive it down the last
stretch to the end of the level.



================================================================================
5.4 MISSION 4: PAR FOR THE COURSE
================================================================================

Start of the mission, climb up towards the red smoke and watch the ensuing
cut-scene

------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Destroy the AA launchers ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : NS2000, MG3, M16, M24
Gold: 2

Head down the cliff face for the target straight infront of you.The buildings
on the right as you approach hold the NS2000, so collect that first. Then head
into the building under the artillery and grab your favourite friend, the C4 :)
Climb up the stairs outside and blow up the artillery using the C4. Leg it to
the left of the base, past the empty tank to the river. Get into a boat and
start to head to the left. Follow the opposite shore around until you reach a
wooden bridge and moor just past it. Get out head to the enemy base to the right
and blow up the second AA launcher. There's also a MG3 weapon pickup on the
right corner as you approach the base, collect it. Run back to your boat
(there will be an enemy tank on its way, so be quick). Take the boat further up
the river until you see another enemy outpost on the right.This one is abandoned
but has the first bar of Gold and the M16 pickup. Get both. The M16 is an
upgraded assault rifle, so feel free to hang on to it. Get back in the boat and
keep following the bank on your right. You will head out of the combat zone as
you round the corner of the land, but ignore the message and you will drive out
safely. Further up there will be an island on your left. Pull up near it and get
off the boat. The island doesn't have much, but it does have your second Gold
pick up and the M24 sniper rifle to collect. Get both and then take the boat
towards the last target. You'll come across a beach strewn with concrete
blockers and metal spikes. Leave the boat, run to the target and C4 it to death
and then run right, through the fence and regroup at the smoke.


------------------------------

------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : -
Gold: -

Take the BMD light tank and head up the road to the smoke. Collect the laser
designator and then switch it out for the C4 again. Hide on the near side of
the houses on the right side of the road.When the T94 comes close, run out,stick
him with C4 and blow him to kingdom come. Regroup at the smoke.

------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Reach the Supply Station ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : PP2000
Gold: 1

Take the BMD and drive up the road to the supplt station. Take out the guard
tower and the soldier next to it.Drive staight through the Supply station, right
up to the enemy BMD. Jump out of your tank and use your C4 to take out the enemy
tank. With him taken out, go around the base and eliminate all other enemies.
Careful with dying here, the spawn point is all the way back at the previous
red smoke and you don't get your vehicles back, so Hard mode can get quite
annoying once you've lost your Vodnik, BMD Tank and Golf Kart. With the enemies
dead collect the PP2000 collectable from the large white building and then
head past the fence behind the two heavy tanks to collect the Gold bar from
near the pillar. With that out the way, pickup a Power tool (there's two near
the tanks) and get into one of the Heavy tanks, you're going for a ride :)

------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Get to the Palace ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : UMP, VSS
Gold: 1

This is a pretty straightforward section, your tank is more than capable of
taking out all enemies here comfortably. If your playing on Hard, repair your
tank between fights and continue along the path When the game checkpoints for
the third time along the path (this should be just before the encounter with
another T90 in the middle of the road) deal with the enemy tank and then head
left towards the empty T90 tank you should see on your minimap. There's a small
shed near it which holds the next Gold bar. Collect it and hop into the new T90
tank to run the final stretch down towards the palace. This bit can be a little
frustrating on Hard and sometimes on normal. There will be two entrenched T90's
firing at you and on Hard you'll have to kill them to proceed. The best way is
to abuse the respawning system and just keep hammering towards them, firing as
much as you can until they die. Whatever way you choose to destroy them, with
them gone approach the bridge barrier and kill the soldiers here. On the right
of the barrier, in one of the guard towers there will be the UMP submachine gun
to collect. So collect it and head to the bridge. As you reach the bridge it
will explode, so step on to it and step right off. Pick up the VSS and take the
pathway on the left of the bridge.There's a whole bunch of soldiers gunning for
you here so take them out at long range with the VSS. As you reach a third
over the forces across the bridge will open fire as well. There's one Mounted
machine gunner, a sniper right next to him and a sniper in the wooden building
to the left. Use the VSS and take them all out first. Keep an eye on your
health when sniping and heal when required. Once they're dead, that's the main
threats dealt with.Continue along killing the standard soldiers as they approach
until you cross over to the right side and reach the smoke.

------------------------------

¦ Rescue the President ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : PKM
Gold: 1

First thing, kill the few mercs running at you and collect the PKM. You can keep
that if you want, it has a lot of ammo and is pretty good for the last run of
this mission. There's two ways to tackle this bit.On Easy and Normal you can run
straight through the middle of the enemy forces and keep healing to make it to
the checkpoint at the Palace doors. On Hard that's not possible so, head to
the right after collecting the PKM and go around the walls of the garden. On the
minimap it will almost look as though you are out of the Area of Operation, but
you should be fine. When the wall ends you can then make a dash to the Palace
doors and the Garden mercs won't notice you.Once inside, kill all the Mercs.They
all carry M16's so you can use those to replace the PKM or VSS if you still
have it. There's a whole lot of them on the stairs, so careful if you run right
up them.The final Gold bar for the level is on the ground floor in the
back and if the mission doesn't complete once the palace is empty it's because
there's usually a cowardly merc around the back or side of the palace. Once
they're all dead, regroup at the doors to the President's room.

Weapon Pickups : -
Gold: 1

Take a moment to get to grips with the helicopter. If you've come from playing
multiplayer you'll notice it's Very different. The Single Player helicopter is
designed for ease of use and it can hover far easier than the multiplayer one
Also it's a tad slower too... Good news is that the rockets the Helicopter
comes armed with are infinite with zero reload,so fire like crazy at everything.
If your on X360 you can rack up quite a few of the achievements here by firing
at everything. So first things first, land at the smoke. Jump out, run in to the
house and collect the powertool and repair the helicopter. Take off and
destroy the three trucks, you should be able to manage it in a single flyover
Ignore the tutorial to use the gunner seat - you don't need it. Fly on! When
you reach the dam, destroy the two trucks going across and land at the left
side of the dam. The large white building has the first Gold bar for the level.
So kill the nearby soldiers, collect the Gold and get back in the helicopter.

them, so as you fly past, fire a few rockets their way to take them out. An
anti-air BMD tank will roll up onto the small bridge past the silos. Fire at him
a few times to take him out, or fire at the bridge and he'll take the plunge;
though of course the latter way will mean you take a few hits. Next up is the
barracks, hover near them and shoot at all the buildings. Once they've all taken
a certain percentage of damage they'll be considered inorperable and you can fly
on to the next target.
Fly towards the big bridge ahead, fire around the center to destroy the bridge
and throw the AA BMD into the depths below. As you approach the comms center it
is adivisable on anything above Easy mode to take out all the soldiers in the
compound. On Easy the only people that need to be taken out are the troops
directly by the bridge entrance and the troops ontop of the comms building. With
that done land on top of the comms building. If you took a while getting to
this point a Vodnik will drive up,so destroy it before entering the comms
centre. You can jump in through the skylight or take the stairs down on the side
of the building and blow open the side of the building. Take the stairs inside
the centre to reach the basement. On the left of the stairs you'll find the
second Gold pickup, on the right you'll find the objective. Shoot two grenade
shots at the computer systems here and run back up the stairs. Take the side
exit and head up the stairs to your helicopter. There will be another vodnik
here now,so repair your helicopter and then take out. As soon as you drop below
the comms centre the vodniks can't target you anymore. Head toward s the next
objective. There will be another AA BMD heading for the end of the main island,
so take him out and fly on (if you ignore him, he can shred your helicopter).
Before you reach the next obejctive you'll see a small island with ruins and two
enemy soldiers. Land here, kill the soldiers and pick up the third bar of Gold.
Get back in the helicopter and head to the next objective.

This section requires you to shoot the crap out of everything that moves,pretty
much. I won't specify when you need to repair, just do it as required as the
damage you take can vary depending on your accuracy against the AA BMD's. Swoop
forward and take out the first AA BMD and then destroy the three trucks driving
up the road. Head right and take out the AA BMD here. Now head back left
and then across the river. Take out another AA BMD before blitzing the base.
Destroy the trucks, the soldiers and the final AA BMD in the area. Two gunboats
will soon join the fray. Before taking them out, land near the large white
building that was near the final AA BMD you took out (make sure you land the
helicopter in cover, so the gunboats don't take it out while your away)
Collect the fourth Gold bar from the building. With the Gold collected
take off in the helicopter, destroy the gunboats. Be mindful of thier missile
barrages, they can be quite lethal.

The fuel gauge will start buzzing as your helicopter realises its low on fuel.
Head to the next objective marker as it appears and land at the base. You will
be ejected from your helicotper and told to get a fuel truck to the helicopter.
There are three choices, the easiest one being down the road. If Sweetwater
hasn't already, get on the kornet and take out the approaching Vodnik. Head down
the main road, taking out any targets present. As you approach the branching
road left, go into the large while building (looks like all the other Gold
storage buildings in the level) on the corner to collect the last piece of Gold
for the level. Get back onto the road and head all the way down and get the
truck back to the helicopter. This should be pretty easy if you elimiated
most of enemies along the road.

While Sweetwater figures out how to fix the helicopter, you have to fight off
the enemy forces. Use the stationary machine gun to gun them all down as they
appear. Haggard will take care of the ones on the far right, you take the one
coming up the road. After the first wave the second wave will come with a vodnik
Take this out with the kornet and then use the machine gun to mop up the last of
them. The final few come from Haggard's side, so lend him a hand. When they're
all dead three AA BMD's will approach and the mission to get back in the
helicotper will be given. Don't try and fight the AA BMDs, they're far too tough
Just get back in the helicopter and take off to end the mission.

------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : -
Gold: -

Head down to the village. Stay slightly to the right, there are fewer enemies
out in the more open areas. You'll see a building with fencing all around it
and explosive tanks inside (on the minimap it will show up as a building with
two pickups). Approach it and shoot the explosive tanks, to tear open the
fencing and the side of the house. This should give you an easy approach and
means you don't have to tackle too many of the enemy. Once inside a cutscene
plays. As the cutscene ends, pick up the M95 sniper rifle to collect it and grab
the rocket launcher as well. Quickly head for the boat behind the house and use
it to get to the opposite river bank. You have to be quick, otherwise on Normal
and Hard the Vodnik that arrives after the cutscene will keep bugging you as
you try to get across the river.

Get into the CAV and drive straight ahead in the same direction it was facing.
Ignore the first road you'll drive over, when you reach the second, start
following it around to the right (anti-clockwise) Two vodniks should drive past
and blitz your poor CAV. Luckily there's a checkpoint up ahead you can use to
get your CAV back afresh, otherwise, you're walking. There's a dirt road that
braches off left just as you get checkpointed. Take this road to reach a small
dead end base. The house at the back of the base has the first bar of Gold for
the level. Collect it and get back to the main road. Continue driving, head
around the roadblock and drive straight through the barrier at the comms centre.
Drive past the initial buildings and get to the bridge that leads to the roof of
the comms centre. Kill the guards here and steal their AK's. Use the skylight to
break into the comms building and make your wayto it's basement. A cutscene
plays.

------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Get to the Monastery ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : -
Gold: 3

This bit can be quite hard. There's a lot of guards just outside the comms
building waiting to kill you. Head up ladder, shoot the explosive materials to
blow a hole in the wall and leg it to the higher ground. Once here, tear a
hole in the fence and then run back down along the fence to the back entrance to
the comms centre. There's two trucks parked up here and three enemies to kill.
Kill them and steal a truck. Don't go rushing for the objective marker just yet
though. Drive the truck straight off the edge of the cliff. That's right,
straight off! Use the brakes to provide a little more stability, but really
there's only a 20% chance that you'll survive with your truck. If you'r truck
lands upside down, get out and whatever you do don't get out while it's still
in motion as you'll probably run yourself over. If you die here, you go all
the way back inside the comms centre :( Anyway, your target is the only building
in the area with a pickup - you'll see it on your minimap. The building has a
handy M-16 and the second bar of Gold get both and then get moving (with
or without your truck) along the river, heading right. The obective markers at
this stage are only guides and you need not visit them directly to move the
mission on.
Keep following the river until you reach a crossing (it'll be shown as such on
the minimap and there will be rocks in the water to signify.Keep to the right of
the crossing and climb up on the other side. If your lucky you won't attract
any attention from the stationary gunner on the left. Up ahead you will now see
the Hydroplant. Kill the guard outside, steal the CAV and drive straight through
the Hydroplant. There's a good chance to Kornet mounted soldier will kill
you here, if he does, head around the hydroplant to avoid confrontation. Once
through there will be another river crossing, take it. Keep following the road
and you'll reach another parked up CAV. Get into it and drive left...ish.
There's groups of houses here with enemies inside. Head to the one furthest out
to collect the third piece of Gold.
Then drive straight up towards the obejctive marker. Driving up the big rocky
expanse should get you out of the tightest bits of the village, but unless your
lucky, you'll still have to deal with the T-90. Use the rocket launcher to take
him out and then continue driving up the winding road towards the monastery.
You'll come across a vodnik and a stationary gunner. When you reach the signpost
which says monsatery and you can see a bridge up ahead,turn right to head up the
blocked off road instead. Head up to the top of this path, avoiding or killing
the snipers and gunners. Look down from the top and you'll see lots of ruins in
between the winding road you just took. Head amongst the ruins to collect the
fourth piece of Gold. With that done, head up again and take the skinny bridge
to reach the monastery.


------------------------------

¦ Get inside the Monastery ¦

------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -

Gold: -

This bit can be quite taxing. One easy you can run from the bridge, through the
main entrance to the monastery, heal yourself, jump over the sandbags by the
stationary gunner,knife the soldier blocking your way and reach the inside where
upon a cutscene kicks in. On Hard and at times on normal its not quite that
straightforward. You can take out the necessary people here (like the
stationary gunner) and then try to barrel your way in, or you can take it slowly
and kill everyone in the courtyard. With the ability to take cover at the sides
of the entrance, this way isn't too hard, just time consuming. Once your inside
and the cutscene kicks in, the objective is complete.

------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Get to the Harbour ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : XM8 LMG
Gold: 1

Seems like an awful lot of harbours in this game :P First thing, head to the
top of the monastery's tower for another achievement and then head back to the
main entrance of the monstery.Collect the XM8LMG from the main courtyard (it
should be in the top right corner as your leaving).Just ouside of the entrance a
few enemy's are milling about. Kill them. Head left and as you reach the edge
of the monsastery head left again. Stay on the raised ground just by the
monastery walls and head around until you can see another set of ruins down
below. This one has a the ruins of a circular tower building among them.
Head down to it and collect the last piece of Gold for the level.From here,
use your rocket launcher to destroy the BMD tank waiting by the bridge. Then
run down the mountainside in the general direction of the objective marker.
When you finally reach the ground level you should be near another CAV. Steal
it and drive right past the ambushing BMD. There's a checkpoint just past
the BMD, so don't worry about taking a little damage. Drive past the Vodnik and
head to the hydroplant. On hard this bit can get a bit annoying with the
helicopter that's started to follow you. He's a bit random and can be a little
too evil. You can use the checkpoint at the hydroplant, keep repawning with
the CAV and gun him down if you want. He's quite hardy, but will die
eventually.Eitherway, leap off into the water and get into a boat. Now it's just
a matter of staying alive while driving as fast as possible to the final
objective marker at the harbour. Apart from the helicopter the only other real
danger here is the large gunboat. The best way to deal with him is drive
straight at him, so that he can't deliver an entire missile barrage into your
side, and then quickly turn. Once you pass the final bridge a cutscene kicks in
and it's mission done.

Gold: -

Run up to the top of the hill. When enemy base comes into view, start blasting
away at the rooftop squatters. Go for the Stationary gunners first, then the
Kornet's then the sniper atop the tall thin building top. You have to
eliminate all enemies here, so with the rooftop dwellers dealt with, head down
and kill anything that moves. Normal soldiers will drop the AUG, a few will
have the T194 or the 9A91 and the sniper (the guy in the wooly overcoat atop the
tower) will have the GOL. Collect them all and then deal with the light tank
that appraoches. There's a rocket launcher just near your entry point into the
base which you can use to deal with the tank, or use or a Kornet. With that
trouble taken care of, make sure you have the rocket launcher by the end of it
and head to the red smoke.

------------------------------
¦ ¦
¦ Reach Sadiz ¦
¦ ¦
------------------------------
Soldier Drops: QJU88
Weapon Pickups : SPAS15
Gold: 2

Drive up the road to the next base. There's a lot of Kornet's here that will
probably shred your tank. Kill them. Directly on your left as you first approach
the base there are two building. Head through to the second one to retrieve your
first bar of Gold. Head back to the normal way into the base.After you walk past
the entry corridor of Kornet's head into the buildings on the right. One of
them has a soldier wielding a QJU88 and the other has a weapon pickup for SPAS15
If you've been following this guide to get the weapons, you should now have all
of them and if your on X360 you'll hear that warm fuzzy sound that tells you,
you've unlocked an achivement for it. The next bit can be handled in two ways.
One is to get the Black Eagle tank sitting at the top of the base and proceed
slowly, killing enemies. The other is to get into the Kobra or your CAV and
drive straight through. The latter is really the smarter option :) drive up the
road to the next objective marker. Three light tanks will head your way, keep
to the right of the road and drive straight past them. From here keep following
the edge of the Area of Operation. There will be a small wooden fenced base up
ahead (past a few heavy tanks), inside you'll find your second bar of Gold and
a replacement CAV. Follow the AOO past the dragons teeth (toblorone shapes)
straight to the next objective. The game will take over control here briefly and
then run a cutscene.

Turn around and climb the moutain round so that the town swings into view. We're
going to be avoiding confrontation again so get ready to run. Head down by the
fencing and stick to the left side of the town, right by the edge of the AOO.
There will be a few times when you go outside it, just make sure you get back
inside on time. Use your knife to chop at the fences in the way. When you reach
a small clearing head straight for the right bridge first. Ignore the tank, run
under the bridge and use the grenade launcher attachment on your rifle to take
it out. It only takes one shot. With that done, turn around and run for the
other bridge and shoot it with a grenade launcher shot as well. Now head across
to the other bank and start running to the left area, where your next obejctive
appears.

Head up the narrow passage. Use the rocket launcher to take out the stationary
guns before they see you and climb under the broken pipe. There's another piece
of Gold on the right side of the building that the enemy are stationed in, so
collect it before running to the red smoke. Run down into the town with Haggard,
head up the building with the objective marker to collect the laserdesignator.
Use it on the large building in the distance. If your playing X360, keep the
laser designator (you'll need it for another achievement) otherwise just switch
back to the rocket launcher. Jump off the building, heal yourself and run in the
opposite direction to the building you just blew up, being mindful of sudden
mercenary forces appearing.

Gold: 2

The second last building on the left, in the direction your running, has the
fourth bar of Gold on its roof.So go in, climb the ladder and collect the Gold.
From here take out the black eagle tank blocking your way out and then run
towards the next obejctive. As you approach the large skeletal buildings,
stay inside the ones on the right. There's one soldier in the first building,
kill him. And then one soldier and one light tank hiding by the side of the
second.Take them out on Hard, ignore them on anything else. Stick to the right
and collect the final piece of Gold sitting by the empty swimming pools.
That is the final piece of Gold, so that's another achievement right there. :)
Run to the CAV, climb in and watch the cutscene.

Soldier Drops: -
Weapon Pickups : -
Gold: -

Head along the rail tracks, taking out mercs as you go.When you reach the AA gun
at the end, it will explode. Kill the mercs here and climb to the top of the
stairs. The Legionnaire's helicopter will be flying around trying to kill you.
The tactic to killing him is using the provided rocket launcher to shoot him.
He's got a fairly easy pattern, just wait for him to fly straight at the
platform firing missiles. When he's spent, he will hover for a moment - that's
your moment to rocket him. Then just survive until he repeats the move. If you
want the 'One in a Million' achievement to hit a helicopter with the laser
designator then take aim and try to time it so that your missile is falling
as he becomes stationary. It's no use targeting him when he is stationary, your
missile will just fly down as he starts to move.Either way he goes down in three
hits. :)

Well done you've killed the Legionnaire...well actually you haven't.
He does a Liquid Snake and somehow survives a helicopter crash unscathed.
Regardless that's GAME OVER THANK YOU FOR PLAYING!
