Berlin 0430 Hours

Once you come under attack, head to the corner right in front of you and lean out to the South and snipe the 3 soldiers by the railing. Some soldiers appear behind you but the Russian soldiers will take care of them. Once they're dead move South down the street, then turn to the left and head for the truck, take out the soldier standing to the right of the truck and the game will autosave.

-----------------
WELCOME TO BERLIN
-----------------

Jump into the bed of the truck and duck down. Look up at the left end of the bridge to the South, strafe left until you can see the sniper up there then snipe him. Switch to the SMG and face the North, pop up and shoot the single guy by the stone columns, then duck down before the MG gets a bead on you. Now face the MG to the East and zoom in while you're still ducked, pop up and line up your shot then duck down. Wait until the shooting stops and then pop up and snipe the guy.

Get out of the truck and head East, a truck with some soldiers in it will come down the road from the NorthEast. Run to the MG and take control, wait for the truck to stop and then let'em have it. Now follow the road as it curves, when you see an open building on the right side stop and snipe the next sniper up by the flaming barrel. Keep following the road to the East and move to the left side, take cover behind large rock by the road then lean out and snipe a couple Germans to the South- East, then wait for the tank coming up behind you to stop. Run by the tank and SMG the two soldiers riding on it, then stick a Sticky Bomb on the tank and run away(keep moving away from the turret!), the rain will put out the fuse, so you have to shoot the Bomb once you're a safe distance away. Back away towards the area you just came from, not the wide open road you haven't been to yet. Blow up the tank, then move to the NorthEast and take cover behind one of the concrete stumps. Quicksave here.

From this point on, snipers will constantly be firing on you, so you need to stay away from the open areas. Stay behind the concrete stump until another truck pulls up and stops in front of you, lean out and shoot the two soldiers when they jump off the truck, then get the driver when her comes running around at you. Now stay behind the stumps and move East, stop at the next to last one and you'll see the downed plane up ahead on the left with an enemy truck by it. Zoom in under the truck and snipe the two soldiers on the other side. When they're dead, move to the last stump and turn back around to the West and look up. Shoot the guy standing up on the rubble, then quicksave. Now, make a mad dash to the plane to get the documents, they're laying right by the plane and truck on the ground. WHen you get near the truck, stop and snipe the guy up in the building to the Northeast, then turn your attention to the documents. Stand over them and USE them to pick them up. The game will autosave. If you take too much damage from the snipers while running to the plane, then load and try again.

-------------------------------
RETRIEVED PAPERS FROM THE PLANE
-------------------------------

Run to the pile of rubble South of the truck and look to the three story building to the left, aim up at the right side of the building and you'll see a sniper. Kill him, then strafe across the road while looking to the building to the North. Kill the two soldiers on the steps.

Now go left and run to the blown out building, you'll hear a tank coming from the left. Kill the two soldiers inside the building in the small room on the left, then take control of the artillery cannon and use it to take out the tank. Jump off and shoot the couple soldiers that come with the tank, then go South into that little room where the two enemy soldiers were. Go to the steps, lean left, and look out to the right. Snipe the soldier up on the rubble then exit the door and take control of the MachineGun, a wave of soldiers come from the South. Shoot them all, then check for any survivors with your Sniper scope. Now move to the end of this small alcove and a soldier will come out of the second story door. Snipe him then start going SouthEast around the buildings, a tank will come rolling over the pile of rubble ahead, you it's easier to just avoid it so run back and duck under the balcony where you just sniped the German until it passes.

Once the tank has gone by, go back around the building to the SouthEast and stop on top of the rubble pile. Get out the sniper rifle and kill the soldier standing on the street to the right, then look into the right window of the building directly in front of you(with the car) and snipe the guy inside. This causes a soldier to come out on the balcony right above that window, so shoot him, then strafe right and look into the right side window of the building and snipe the officer inside.

Now go onto the street and go right, move to the left side and go into the small alley just after the "boucher" sign. A truck with some soldiers riding it will drive in from the South, go by you, then U turn back and come by again. When it stops South of you, lean out and snipe the two soldiers that get out, then the driver who comes running around. When they're dead, head to the truck and then the arch past it. Get near the arch and you'll hear a tank coming and the game will autosave.

---------------------------------
ENTERING THE CHANCELLORY BUILDING
---------------------------------

Run back to the rock across from the truck to keep safe from the tank gun. Lean out and shoot the 3 Germans who accompany the tank, then wait for the tank to shoot and run up and Sticky Bomb it. Run back to the rock and snipe the Sticky Bomb to blow up the tank. When it's gone, run past it to the door on the left. Enter the building and quicksave.

Go up the steps and shoot the soldier standing there, then the one that comes in from the East door. Go up the next flight of stairs shoot two more soldiers, then go West through the rooms and turn North, walk across the beam and open the door. Shoot two more Germans, then go down the steps and into the first door on the right. Kill the guy in here then go near the safe, now go back out the door and kill the German who comes from the East, then go East to the next door(it's on a small West wall by the bookshelves), shoot two more soldiers, and go inside. Get near the desk and USE the papers to pick them up, then go back to the room with the safe in it. USE the safe, then USE the papers inside. Quicksave here.

After you get the papers from the safe a tank will pull up outside and blow this room up, so GET OUT. Exit the door and go East, shoot the wave of Germans who come up the East stairs then go down them and kill a couple more in the locker room below.

Move to the right side of the door and open it, then lean out and zoom in on the MG nest up on the building across from you. Snipe the gunner, then switch to the SMG and run out and shoot the rest of the soldiers near the tank, about 4 in all. Once they're all dead, get near the tank and this section will end.

-------------
SAVE THE TANK
-------------

Now you get to control the T-34 tank. This section isn't as hard as the one shooting from the truck, but it can get a little frustrating. Once more, quicksaving alot will cut down on the anger factor, and being smart when getting into firefights with other tanks will help as well.

Pull around to the right to get past the first wreckage, then wait and MG the soldier by the building. A tank comes in from the left, so keep waiting and fire at it until it blows. Now move out into the open area and shoot the Artillery gun across the way, then MG the soldiers on your right. To get rid of another tank early, try to go North and the tank will stop you, otherwise you can just kill it after a bit. Start heading West to the blown up Artillery and make a right turn, kill the 3 soldiers with rockets from afar with your cannon/MG, then if you have more than 70 health, quicksave, otherwise start over and try this bit again.

GO up to the corner where the road turns right and a halftrack will drive in. Move out, take a shot at it, then back up to safety while you reload. This tactic will help out ALOT in this level. Keep doing this until the halftrack goes down, then turn the corner and start heading down the road. MG the three soldiers who come up from the right, then take out the tank here if you didn't before. Again, use a pile of rubble as safety, drive out and shoot at it, then back up to reload, once it's down and you're still in good shape(50+) then quick- save again.

The road will now bend to the left, and another halftrack will drive in and park down at the other end of this tall building lined street. THere's also a tank close by on the left. Stay by the rubble pile where the tank can't shoot you and drive ahead to shoot at the halftrack, then back up to reload. Take out any rocket soldiers that are around as well. Once the halftrack is down, slowly pull forward until you can see the tank on the left. Pull up until you can get a shot on it, from this range it should only take one, but you're about to get some health so you can take some damage if you need. Once the tank is down, follow the road as it curves to the left again, drive to the very end and get the health barrels. Then back up and go over the small hill between the buildings on the SouthWest. Quicksave here again.

Stop at the edge of the buildings, a tank comes in from the North- West. Pull out and shoot at it, then back up to reload until it's dead. Then make the turn and head West, shoot a couple rocket soldiers from afar then keep going West into this next open area and the game will autosave.

-------------
HALF WAY HOME
-------------

Another tank comes from the South, blast it then shoot the artillery gun in the blown out building to the North and MG the soldiers around it. Now head South and there's some health barrels on the right, but before you get them another tank will blow through a building and stop for a second. Shoot it while it's stopped and keep shooting until it's blown up, then grab the health and follow the road along the long U-turn to face North. MG a couple soldiers and then a Halftrack will come racing in, shoot it quickly then head down the road it came from, North.

In this next area, MG the soldiers that are to the East and North by the sandbags, but stay behind the large rubble pile at the S curve of the road. Get the radio message and a tank comes in from the North. Use the pile as cover and kill it, then head to the bridge. Drive up to the very left edge of the bridge and MG the soldier on it, the small wall in front of you will provide cover from the rocket soldiers on the higher bridge to the left. Shoot the Artillery cannon right by you, then start out onto your bridge. Shoot the other Artillery cannon on the other side, then the middle of the higher bridge to make it fall. The game will autosave here.

--------------
THE LAST STAND
--------------

As long as you're above 30 health or so for this part you should be fine. Drive over the bridge and go right to where the Russians are. Now you have to hold off the German forces one last time. The perfect spot for you to be in is in front of the alley where the other tanks come out of, facing South, with the truck on your left and the other two tanks on your right. You should concentrate on the tanks that come directly across from you, and let the others get the ones on the higher bridge for now.

After you kill a couple across from you, then you can help out with the ones on the bridge. There gets to be as many as five tanks up there. Only about 4 total show up to the South, so once you've killed all 4, then concentrate only on the bridge. With the other two tanks in front of you in this direction you shouldn't take much damage. One or both of your ally tanks might blow up, but that's okay, as long as you don't.

I'm not sure if there's a real timer or not, or if you just need to blow all the enemy tanks up, but blow up all the other tanks anyway. Just remember that only 4 show up, 2 at a time, on the flat land to the South, and the bridge gets 5. It starts out with two, then two more come, then a final one. Once they're all blown up you'll get another message and that's the end of the game. Congrats!
