Top Ten Tips
10. Nakatomi Plaza: A Wealth of Engagement Types. Within each floor of Nakatomi Plaza are opportunities for CQB and mid-range engagements, such as around the lobby and on the executive floor. Snipers will want to take to the roof, or peek outside the windows for some great vantage points.
9. Consider All Entrances. While it could be a good idea to enter through the main entrance in a standard two-by-two cover formation, there are other means to enter Nakatomi Plaza. Consider delving into the Parking Garage and moving up or scurrying up the scaffold and jumping onto window washer platforms.
8. Complications to the Deal. For the Deal Gone Wrong event, watch out for fellow Operators who may try to disrupt your takes at fending off waves of enemies.
7. Sustaining Hostile Fire. When defusing the C4 in the Hostile Fire event, it may be smart to have a squad member deal with the incoming Attack Helicopter. Its weaknesses are FMJ bullets, Vehicle Damage-boosting Barrels and rocket launchers.
6. Settling Unfinished Business. Search high and low for the Supply Boxes that are part of the Unfinished Business event. Listen for the hum they emit and use your knowledge of the film to narrow down their locations.
5. Jackpot. The Nakatomi Corp. Vault is sealed tight with plenty of valuables inside. It may be possible to unlock it if you find its keys during some missions, but all we know is it’ll take more than just your charming personality to crack it open…
4. Makeshift Defenses. Any Survival Camp you’ll come across is placed tactically in major chokepoints or vantage points around Verdansk. Try using them as ambush spots or to scout ahead for your next move, and remember their locations for after that guerrilla warfare expert leaves the DZ.
3. Intel is Key to Survival. The Survival Camps will not be marked on your Tac Map, but the CIA is aware of their positions around Verdansk. Steal their intelligence, and it may be easier to find those Fallen Soldier Tags.
2. Prepare for War. At the CIA Outpost, should you have enough Fallen Soldier Tags, be sure to stock up on ammo and high-damage weaponry before calling in reinforcements on the radio. Otherwise, you may be ill-fitted for what will come next…
1. Be a Hero… But don’t be selfish! It takes the whole squad to break open the Nakatomi Corporation Vault or successfully return those Fallen Soldier Tags, so squad up, communicate often, and work together as one badass action movie protagonist ensemble.
So, what are you waiting for? Drop into this throwback thrill-ride and become the ’80s hero you were born to be.
