This section is about single player
strategy. It does not have maps of each level or any cheats. It also does
not have information about individual level 'bosses'. I'd like you to find
out what those bosses are all about yourself, what their strengths and
weaknesses are. This is simply a guide to help you play wisely. Some of
the strategies are from the Multiplayer section of the site.
You know how this goes. Instead
of running out into a potential deathbed, quietly and slowly approach your
enemy and/or his/her typical territory. Make sure to always look for cover,
just in case your enemy spots you. Just be really careful, slow, and quiet.
Hiding in dark areas that you can blend in with is also a good idea. Cloak
yourself in shadows and/or dark areas at night.
2. Know The Level
You'd better know that level like
your palm. Make sure you can remember where the key areas are - areas
that may host a battle most often, areas that harbor a certain weapon or
3. Know Your Weapon
I like the pistol. To me it means
power and "oh god my eye I lost my eye!". But the truth is, the pistol
has a short range. Therefore, a rifle would be better suited for those
long range shots. Don't do something stupid like try to snipe a guy a mile
away with a pistol. He/she will just hear you and know you're onto them.
Use a rifle and if you have a scope, aim for the head! Get the idea? Know
your weapons. For instance, before playing multiplayer, go to Historical
Missionsand choose Marshall Training. Try out all the weapons.
Fire them from different ranges. Notice the spread of each shotgun and
how they may differ. Your weapon is your best friend when someone wants
you dead, so get to know them all! Even the fists and knive!
4. Know Your Enemy
Spot the enemy's weaknesses and
strengths. Also, watch the enemy. Notice his personal strategies so that
next time you go into a fight with him, you may know what to expect.
5. Don't Get Cocky
Hey I admit, sometimes I get a little
cocky. "I'll beat j00!" Yeah well that doesn't always happen. Don't ever,
ever forget this: EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED!
If you lose, so what. Get back up
again and go in stronger. Everyone wins and loses, including your enemy.
Even the best Oulaws sharp shooter out there has lost and is bound to lose
again. Just don't get cocky.
6. Use Roofs
Yes you read right. Use roofs. If
you can get on top of a building, that's great because then you can snipe
off the opposition. Move around a bit too, don't camp in one spot because
if the enemy figures out exactly where you are on that roof, they'll take
you out quicker than you can reload a Pez dispenser. Always watch your
7. A knife is a great weapon
So you may not think high of the
knife, but it's better than you think. Scenario: There is an enemy ahead
of you to your left, not facing you. You could:
A. repeat-fire your pistol
B. snipe his head with the rifle
C. stick him with the knife without
making a loud noise that would alert him and/or other players.
The obvious wise decision here is
8. Don't camp...
...unless you absolutely must. Camping
is a term for when a person stays in one spot the majority or all of the
game's time and usually uses the most powerful weapon or sniping weapon.
Thus, he usually gets a lot of kills - but is a coward because he hides
all the time. Genereally, campers are not looked up to. They're looked
down on. (hint, hint)
9. Use items wisely
The big black medical bags will
replenish some of your health, but don't use it when you really only have
a few hearts missing. Go look around for some canteens instead. Use the
black bags for bigger health losses. Simply don't use an item unless you
really, really need to use it.
I admit when I first played this
game years back, I pulled the trigger on an enemy and all I got was a "click"
-- I forgot to reload. In fact, I'm not even sure if I realized that in
the game you had to reload at all. But now, it's second nature. Don't get
caught in a fight w/out ammo loaded!
11. Don't cheat
Cheaters are wimps, thats the fact.
I admit I have cheated, but only because I had to. I never cheat until
I pass the entire game. But sometimes you just gotta enable a cheat or
two to get an item or get to a certain spot. Simpy put, if you cheat, it's
not as fun.
But just in case you do need those
cheats desperately, here they are. Just type them while you're in the game.
