Going full Ghost during a mission and maximizing your score in this style is dependent on three factors:
Remain undetected for the duration of a checkpoint.
When neutralizing hostiles, do so using nonlethal methods.
Ensure that none of your victims are found.
If you wish to operate as a Ghost, it’s best to be prepared. Here is a brief rundown of some essential gadgets:
These useful devices are one of the first available to you and benefit both the Ghost and Panther styles. Their primary function is to survey and mark targets beyond your line of sight. Until you purchase Sleeping Gas, they also provide you with the ability to incapacitate enemies within a limited range. Purchase and equip the Flash Charge early in the Campaign to maximize their potential.
Relatively silent and able to be upgraded, the Tri-Rotor is an indispensable tool that should be included in your loadout as soon as possible. This gadget is best used to fly ahead of your position and mark enemies, allowing you to track their movements during your approach.
With the ability to temporarily disable lights, cameras, and other electronic devices momentarily, the Sticky EMP is especially helpful in the control of Drones when their Operators are inaccessible.
These gas grenades release the same chemical as the Sticky Camera, but in much larger quantity, engulfing and dispatching hostiles quickly leaving little room for error.
