Pick up the pistol on the floor.
Locate And Protect Nathan Gould
Pick up the collectible dog tag from the table by the pistol. Break the padlock off the door on the North side of the room by using a melee attack. You can use this melee attack to sneak up on enemies and stealth kill.
Note – Main objectives are represented in blue. You’ll also see how many metre it is to your next objective.
Navigate the warehouse. You can pick up the flourescent light on the table and use it to see in the dark. Crouch under the door into the next room and access the computer on the table – notice it’s glowing slightly to indicate that it’s an object you can interactive with. Head up the steps and then leap across the gap.
Smash through the two doors with a melee attack and then leap up onto the ledge above. Out of the exit and into the fresh air.
Make Your Way Through The Camp
Take a look at the area below. Open your visor by pressing up on the d-pad. Note you can use the visor to observe from a distance.
Once you’ve tagged one or more tactical options they will stay on your hud to help you locate them. Tactical opportunities are highlighted in Yellow. Check out Number 1: It says “ReSupply” informing you of an ammo crate. Number 2 indicates that there is an item to take. Close your visor, jump down and head to number 1 to get ammo. Now head across to Number 2 to pick up the Scarab weapon.
Enemies are flagged up on the map in red, so keep an eye out for movement. This is a good chance to get seen and test out your weapon. There’s only a few enemies in this area, so they’re easy to dispose of. Take the Boardwalk on the South Side of the map if you want to play it stealthy. There’s a cool site of the Statue Of Liberty if you use the bincolours on the sea edge. You can also swim out to the boats moored up. Head through the camp and up the steps to the door where you see the blue objective marker. Move into the building.
The stealth meter kicks in. Activate Cloak Mode. You can’t be seen or heard, but it only lasts until your energy bar drains. Use your melee attack on the guard. Keep invisible and move outside. Watch out for the guards, you’ll see them talking. Activate your visor while hiding behind cover and you’ll see three points of interest.
Take your visor off and head to 1 with your cloak on and light the fuse of the cannon. You’ll alert the two guard, but you’ve got plenty of cover. Neutralize the guards. Now head to 2 and jump over the wall.
Head North Through The Camp
Three guards dead ahead. There’s plenty of cover at the top of the steps to give you time to take them out. You can also flank them in Cloak Mode and stealth kill. Head North to the gate. You can choose to sneak into the facility. Put your visor on and look out for the Tactical Option to infiltrate. head that way and you’ll sneak in through the broken fence. We headed through the front gate, where they’ll be a guard, so take him out in Cloak Mode or from a distance. With your Visor on check out Tactical Option 5 – Observe.
Remember you can jump up on the building with a huge leap, so you can get a good shot at him close up. Make your way to Tactical Option Number 2 – Exit. Make your way slowly across the facility using cover if you plan to fight past the guards, or just leg it with your cloak on.
Cloak yourself and stealth kill the two guards. Use the laptop in the room next to the contamination room. There’s also an ammo crap for resupplying. You’re now outside.
Persona Non Grate
With all the cars on the road and no threat from enemies, this is a good opportunity to test out your Power Kick. You use it with your melee button, but hold it down to power it up. Try kicking a car!
Find The Subway Entrance
Put your visor on and tag these tactical options
Head through the back alley and jump up the ledge. You’ll now gain access to Armour Mode. Activate this to give yourself better protection and absorb damage. Once again, it drains your energy so be wary of that. Take out the guards in this area.
Head to the LedgeGrab. Head up the steps and when you reach the main square, open your visor again for further tactical options.
Put your cloak on and head to the Flank Option. You can jump down into the sewers here and bypass the guards on the square if you like and get straight into the subway. If you decide to do that, don’t walk in the water for too long, stick to the sides of the sewer otherwise you’ll die.
Use your cloak as soon as you hit the pharmacy and press forward to the Exit. There’s plenty of cover spots to use to take out the remaining soldiers, or you could just cloak and make a dash to the subway entrance.
Into the subway, open your visor and tag the LedgeGrab.
Push forward toward the ledge. You’ll stumble across a bug’s nest.
Find An Alternate Route
Jump up the ledge and head upstairs.
