PROLOGUE

ANDERSON AIR FORCE BASE, GUAM

OBJECTIVE: TAKE THE RF JAMMER OFFLINE

ANDERSON AIR FORCE BASE, HELIPAD A9

Guam 1

After leaving the agency, you decided to embark on a new career with your good friend, Vic Coste, as part of his security company Paladin 9. It’s a rainy night in Guam as you meet Vic and tech wizard Charlie Cole at Helipad A9. After the final preparations are made, Vic and you hop on the helicopter to get your operation underway. Immediately something seems wrong, as Vic is unable to get clearance from the tower for liftoff. Despite this, Vic takes off because you are both behind schedule. Within moments of hitting the skies, a huge explosion rocks the base, sending your chopper to the ground. The Blacklist has begun.

As Vic and you emerge from the wreckage just outside the perimeter of the base, Charlie informs you that all the radio channels are down, and that an RF jammer is likely the cause. Your objective is to find the jammer and take it offline.

LEARNING THE BASICS

To survive in Splinter Cell: Blacklist, you must learn to move with stealth, keep to the shadows, and kill with speed and precision. Here are a few basic tactics you will need to master and tips you will need to know in order to transform into the Splinter Cell.

CROUCH

Crouch 1

As you move through areas where hostiles are present, you must make yourself hard to see. Toggle Crouch to evade hostiles and stay out of their line of sight.

LIGHTS ON YOUR GEAR

Lights 1

Whenever you are in shadow, lights on your gear flare so that you’ll know.. Being in shadow makes it difficult for hostiles to see you or know your position.

TAKING COVER

Cover 1

Cover 2

Cover 3

The greatest skill you can master is the ability to move in and out of cover quickly and efficiently. Press the Cover button to enter and exit cover. To move fast between two points, aim toward the direction you want to go, look for the visual prompt, and then tap the Use button.

ADVANCED MOVES

You can also perform several advanced moves:

Hold the Use button down to perform an Active Sprint.

Barrier 1

Press the Cover button to jump over barriers you are hiding behind.

Slide 1

While in an Active Sprint, press and hold the Cover button to execute a slide maneuver.

HAND-TO-HAND ATTACK

Whenever you’re close to a hostile, you can elect to subdue him using a hand-to-hand attack. Press the Hand to Hand Attack button to execute the move.

DETECTED

Detected 1

Whenever you are detected by a hostile, a white outline of your body will appear onscreen. Move away from the outline to hide and/or to flank your pursuers and move in for a kill.

Guam 2

After reaching the jammer, you get on the phone with Charlie to find out how to get it offline while Sam attends to the injured soldier. Within moments of shutting down the device, you find out the soldier isn’t who you think he is. Vic shields you from an explosion as the soldier detonates a grenade.
