Mission: Planting a Bug
Objective: Get into position and contact Bedbug.
When you reach the waypoint that begins the mission, you drop the bug in the trash can. From here, you need to get into position, but before you do there’s another audio log by the bar. Head back outside and travel to the next waypoint.
Once you reach the next destination, head to the south side (scale the fence on the south side) of the compound and use the forklift to the left of the gate to get yourself inside. Use the large carrier as cover and access the camera above your destination. Look to the left to find another camera, then look to the right to find the hack panel needed to unlock the door.
Wait until the guard closest to you moves away and watch the guard across the yard. As soon as both are not looking your direction, quickly make your way to the door. You do not have much time at all to do this, and the guard across the way will likely begin to spot you as you near the door. As long as you time it well and move quickly, you can make it into the door without being “fully” spotted. However, if you are spotted, find cover quickly, as you’ll need to take down all of the guards, and they will throw explosives in your direction.
Objective: Guide Bedbug to Iraq’s locked server room.
You need to guide Bedbug to his destination without being seen. Wait until the guard in the hallway moves around the corner, then immediately move Bedbug as far down the hallway as you can. You do not have much time before the guard walks back down the hallway, so you need to be quick. Switch to the camera at the end of the hall to get a better view.
From this viewpoint, move Bedbug behind the palette of objects near the laptop. The guard doesn’t walk down this far, so Bedbug is safe. If you look to the left you’ll see the guard in the other room. If he’s not visible, use the laptop camera to switch to the camera in the other room to see the guard. Once you’ve spotted him, switch back.
As soon as the guard in the hallway and the guard in the other room are out of the way, move Bedbug into the other room. You can only move him to one spot in the room from this vantage point. Switch to the camera across the room, then wait for the guard in the room to move all the way to the right, turning his back. When this happens, move Bedbug behind the desk closest to the camera (so the desk is between Bedbug and the guard).
Switch to the camera on the opposite wall, then to the camera in the next room. Move the camera to the right and hack the laptop, then distract the guard using the Attract point to the far right. As soon as the guard turns his back, move Bedbug behind the desk near the laptop. Switch to the camera in the corner, then move it to the right until you spot the camera in the next room.
Turn the new camera to the right and watch the guard at the end of the hall. When he turns, move Bedbug to the palette of items right next to the door and panel. Unlock the panel, then switch to the next camera. Wait for the guard in the next room to move out of sight, then move Bedbug to the half wall in front of the room. Continue to switch between cameras until you get to the camera in the room with the guard.
Distract the guard with the Attract item on the table directly under the camera, then move Bedbug through the doorway on the left. Quickly switch to the camera in the doorway and move Bedbug out of sight and toward the panel on the wall. Unlock the panel here, then access Bedbug’s hidden camera. When Bedbug walks into the next room and moves over to the door, unlock it using the next panel.
Switch to the camera in the next room as soon as it becomes visible, then hack the interlude to access another mini-game. All of the points that need to be accessed are in the center area of this puzzle. Turn the point in the upper left corner twice, then move right one point and turn it twice. Move to the lower left point near the bottom and turn it once, then move to the timed point on the far right and turn it twice.
Quickly move to the middle point on the left, unlock it and turn it once (two clicks in total), then turn the upper right point three times and the point directly below it twice. Move down one more point, unlock it and turn it three times (four clicks in total). Click on the point at the very bottom to move on to the second puzzle.
This puzzle also involves all of the points in the middle as the points at the very top and bottom are the start and finish points. Turn the point at the bottom twice (the one above the starting point), then move to the point above it and to the right and turn it twice. Move across to the point on the left and turn it twice, then move up one point and turn it once. Move across and turn the point to the right three times, then move up to the point in the middle and unlock it (one click). Move down one point to the left and turn it three times, then move down again and turn it once. Unlock the far left point, then turn it twice (three clicks in total), then move up and to the right and turn that point once. Move down one point and turn it three more times, then move diagonally up and to the right and turn that point once. Turn the point just below it three times, then move to the far right, unlock it and turn that point twice (three total clicks).
Move down to the bottom point (just above the start point) and turn it three more times, then move up to the top point (just below the final point) and turn it once. This unlocks the final point just above it to complete the puzzle. Move the camera to the left and hack the door to unlock it.
Objective: Escape the Viceroys.
Head out through the doors and get in one of the cars in the yard outside, then make a break for it. Try to avoid any of the enemy cars seeing you to make it easier for you to get away. Once you get away the mission is complete.
