1. Complete the primary and support missions to progress!
In order to advance to the next region, you have to take out the boss enemies in the Black Ops missions. To even attempt the level though, you need to have your gun upgraded to a certain point. You’re going to need a lot of cash, so in the mean time do the Primary and Support missions. Prioritize Primary over Support, but if you need some extra cash, go ahead and do the Support missions.
2. Aim for headshots and multi-kills!
Your score at the end of a level, which is a direction equation to how much your cash reward is, gets a bonus if you manage to pull off headshots and multi-kills. Headshots are self-explanatory, but for multi-kills, try to wait until there is an enemy soldier right behind another one. Shooting the one in front will cause the next one to die, as your bullet will pierce through him. Aim true for score bonuses, which means more cash!
3. Use your thermal in bursts and tag enemies!
Early on you’ll unlock the thermal scope for your sniper rifle. Activating the thermal makes it much easier to make out enemies in the field, but you can only use it for a limited amount of time. Something the game doesn’t explain during tutorials is that you can “tag” enemies, marking them with a big symbol over their heads. To do this all you need to do is hold your crosshairs over an enemy. A meter will appear saying “tagging enemy,” and you need to keep the enemy in your sights. Once it’s filled, they will be marked. A good tactic to do is to activate your thermal, then quickly scope out the field. Try to memorize all enemy locations, then shut off your thermal before it runs out. Tag as many as you can, then go to town. This tactic is especially useful for the missions where you need to kill a specific type of enemy, such as the Combat Medics.
4. Before you fire your first shot, examine your surroundings!
Going off of the tip above, take a look around your environment before you start tagging and fire your first shot. Usually, you have a “grace period” of about thirty seconds before the enemies become automatically alert to your presence. Take this time to scope out your enemies, because remember, sometimes your targets will try to escape by usually running off to the sides of the screen. Be sure to note their escape routes and take them out when they’re running if necessary. Also, be aware that sometimes there will be missions where you have to protect a group of civilians or friendly soldiers, such as the levels where you need to stop an enemy soldier from using a mounted machinegun. You have much less time to prepare on these levels, so quick reflexes is key!
5. Complete the daily challenges for extra cash!
Once you hit level 2, you’ll unlock the daily challenges. These challenges are usually easy, tasking you with destroying explosive barrels. You get to try out a new gun too! They’re worth roughly the same amount of cash as a regular mission, so feel free to do these if you need to rake in some dough.
6. If you need a little boost, try using power ups!
During combat, you can instantly activate power ups at the bottom of the screen.
- The Spotter instantly marks all enemies on the field.
- The Slo Mo slows down time for the remainder of the level, making it much easier to land headshots.
- The Piercing bullets will make your bullets kill anything they hit in one shot, regardless of hit location.
You get a few freebies when you first start out, but when you run out, you have to pay real money to get more. Sometimes when you level up, you’ll get them for free, so don’t spend any money on them!
7. Upgrade your sniper rifle as much as you can!
Don’t worry about upgrading your Support mission weapons that much, as you won’t be using them during the primary missions. Only upgrade them to the point where they meet the criteria for the levels. Your sniper rifle, on the other hand, must be upgraded as much as possible. Aside from the required damage and accuracy upgrades, you can also upgrade your scope and thermal. Your scope increases your zoom range every time it’s upgraded, which is very useful. Your thermal also lasts longer when it’s upgraded. Both are very important so try to keep these up to date while upgrading your other aspects.
You should be ready now, soldier. Good luck on the battlefield! If you have any other questions or suggestions, leave a comment below.
