    ScottMacFreedomGreat guide but not a fan of the commentary on the Destroy Air Emplacements.... I know it's not you... But I had the most trouble with this mission. And when he says Establishments it makes me want to stop watching and jump off a bridge... Within reason of course... But yeah you did good putting things together.

    Blazing NobleI reloaded checkpoints 3 times on 3 different levels and still got S rank. On 3, 5 and 6 I did this. On 5 I didn't save any prisoners after destroying the APC with the 2 min countdown and still got S. Also on 6 I had reflex on and still got S. Just to let people know there is a lot of room for error.

    Kuningatar VEliminate the Renegade Threat is the hardest but here's easy trick: Take sniper rifle from truck and put soldiers sleep using your pistol. Be sure to tranq also soldier in guard post after the bridge.

    Then climb to the closest tower. From here you can easily spot both targets using your sniper but here's the trick: throw SMOKE granade to your feet - You won't get spotted! Smoke can cause some problems with sniping but take your time and aim carefully. Snipe the white guy first using his bald head as easy target. Then shoot asap the black dude who is in admin tower. Usually he is still enjoying his cigarette when you pull a headshot.

    Get out of area using the road which goes over the bridge.

    Here's a guide I made just for the first mission, Ground Zeroes. I found this to be the easiest way to do it. Please see the other guides for help on other missions.

    It should be quite obvious that you need to complete the Main Mission "Ground Zero" in order to unlock the Side Ops. "Jamais Vu" is unlocked after completing this achievement:

    It doesn't matter which difficulty you do these on. It can also help to have received an "A" rank on the mission before going for your "S" rank since it will allow for some extra equipment to be used. Some of the Side-Ops can be difficult but these videos I made while livestreaming can provide some useful tricks to make them quite easy.


    Main Op : Ground Zero on Hard (33:25)


    Pretty straightforward. You can take your time and make mistakes as you can make up for them by rescuing prisoners.


    Side Op : Eliminate The Renegade Threat on Hard (7:06)


    Shows where the sniper rifle is if you don't already have it and how to score some free extra points by extracting one of the targets.


    Side Op : Intel Operative Rescue on Hard (11:35)


    Just don't kill anyone okay.


    Side Op : Classified Intel Acquisition on Hard (5:47)


    Did you ever find a good use for that LAV? Well here's how to make good use of it.


    Side Op : Destroy The Anti-Air Emplacements on Hard (Hard Way | Without Unlocked Rocket Launcher) (11:27)


    It is recommending to get an "A" rank on this so you can do the easy way.


    Side Op : Destroy The Anti-Air Emplacements on Hard (Easy Way | With Unlocked Rocket Launcher) (5:11)


    Makes an annoying mission quite easy.


    Side Op : Jamais Vu on Hard (15:55)


    You thought the end was hard? You're not making great use of what's available to you then.


    Hopefully these help. First guide so I hope everything is sufficient.
