    In order to play the Final Countdown mission, you need to pick the "[Truth] Solovetsky. It's Solovetsky Monastery" option when you are being interrogated by Adler during Identity Crisis. After this you’ll have unlocked the Final Countdown mission.

    At the start of this mission right after the EMP goes off you’ll be holding a War machine. The first Watchtower will be on your right, then shoot the truck that’s just behind the tower on the left. After this there’s a truck on your right and left and right again. After the four trucks there will be two Watchtowers in front of you, take them out. Then there will be two more Watchtowers just after this.

    This took me a fair few tries to do as it’s fairly fast this section. I would advise restarting the mission, as the War machine was glitching out on me by not firing properly when using restart checkpoint.

    If you are still struggling, feel free to use this video as a reference.



    Hope this helped.

    OdinEliteGood Guide. Absolutely awful achievement. For the last two towers, aim higher than you think you need to.

    To play this mission first you have to choose option Truth: Solovetsky. It's Solovetsky when playing the mission Identity Crisis, when Adler asks you where Perseus is.

    Recommend firing more than one grenade at a time, 2 or 3.

    When approaching the monastery just after the emp explosion you will need to take out all the towers and truck on the approach.

    6 x Towers
    4 x Trucks

    In order:
    2 x Towers both sides of the road.
    1X Truck just behind left tower
    1X Truck opposite side of the road (right)
    1x Truck opposite side of the road (left)
    1X Truck opposite side of the road (right)
    1x Truck opposite side of the road (left)
    2 x Towers left both sides of the road.
    2 x Towers just up ahead, blow these before animation starts. If you missed any before animation starts, restart check point.
