Assault on the police station in Vagalala

  • look for explosives in Red Mine site

  • take down chopper with RPG (2 rockets needed to get the damn thing down)
  • blow up the house
  • pick up all the gear from dead infantry and make a big stash on the ground south of Vagalala
  • TIP: gear dropped by player on ground stays there forever, while gear left on dead bodies disappears with the body once player leaves the area (500m or more)
  • park the captured vehicles close (Marid, 2x Qilin, Ifrit, 2x service vehicles), they never disappear

Samjo, Miller, Drabek quests

  • deliver antimalarian pills to Drabek

  • use Marid to support attack on gendarmerie base south of Katkoula
  • assault Katkoula and Savaka
  • wipe out the harbour and police station, spend all night filling trucks with all gear taken from all dead bodies and ammo crates
  • after second truck run Samjo tells you to get a bomb car to blow up the police station in Katkoula
  • BUG: the explosive specialist near the bomb car would not react when getting close to him
    • after reloading a previous saved game I managed to make him react by changing some things I did before (I don't remember well but I think I went sleeping at the rest house and located cache nearby the rest house before trying again to get the bomb car)
  • when morning comes in Katkoula, multiple trucks filled at max with weapons were delivered to L'Ensemble which are now level 2
  • parked the Marid and a few trucks filled with ammo on the beach near Katkoula (a small base like the one south of Vagalala)

Harcourt, Drabek's pills

  • sail with motorboat to the small island west of La Foa
  • from there shoot down the crew of a speedboat and took control of the speedboat
    • I thought I could fill the speedboat with ammo like I did with the trucks but unfortunately the speedboat has very limited capacity
  • with the speedboat investigate the small islands north of La Foa, finish the 'Mysterious Body' quest, find 3 caches nearby in the area
  • leave the speedboat in Yani islets, go to Harcourt to gather intel (steal top secret file)
    • meanwhile the speedboat disappears
  • give top secret file to Keystone
  • give 22 boxes of pills to doctor
  • save Samjo's captive
  • wipe out enemies in checkpoint east of Tanouka, investigate Tanoa Sugar Company (nothing interesting found there)
  • happily fast travel south to Regina to prepare for the diving operation
  • BUG: recover photos from the plane at the bottom of the sea (action has no effect and error is displayed)
  • sail to the island North of Yanuka bay to make CSAT pay for frustration with failed quest to recover photos

Assault on the big island North of Yanuka bay

  • headshoot all infantry that get close to the checkpoint with the Type-115 rifle (use DMS optics), shoot down 2 Ifrits with the MAAWS from the nearby cache
    • BUG: all without triggering the alarm at all
  • assault gendarmerie base in Rautake with the help of Insurgent team requested from Samjo
  • sneak in the CSAT base in Balavu
    • shoot the officer, steal his ID card and intel without triggering the alarm
    • shoot the ammo truck guard and run away with it (alarm does trigger when I run away, then it quickly goes off)
  • sneak in as diver west of Laikoro CSAT base, stealthly shoot down most of the guards, gather intel, shoot down incoming gendarms, alarm triggers, run away with the AT Qilin
  • take back the ammo truck parked not far, drive to Tavu
  • sneak inside the town (with the ammo truck), take down a guard, destroy the Marid parked on the harbor with RPG launcher (no alarm triggered, weird)
  • gendarmes pop in, alarm triggers, shoot them all down with the high caliber ammo from the type 115 rifle, go to the officer's tent
  • steal intel, laptop and ID card from officer
  • fast travel from safe house in Tavu to safe house south of Vagalala

Keystone, Drabek, the garagist

  • BUG: give wallet to garagist (action has no effect)
  • give network plans to Miller (triggers new task to destroy radars near the volcano)
  • give extra pills to Drabek (another 20+ boxes of pills)

Stopped playing campaign

  • after encountering two bugged quests and issues about not being able to finish the campaign read in the Feedback Tracker I decided to stop here to avoid myself further frustration


  • recheck task completion condition when player switches between 'assigned' and 'unassigned'
    • can be used to finish tasks that were blocked before a fix is released so player doesn't need to restart campaign
  • to slow down the pace of the campaign, introduce sleep fatigue to force player character sleep for a few hours (4 or 6)
    • if player doesn't go to rest house or use sleeping bag, incapacitate him (eg blurry screen, slow movement like when carrying heavy load)
  • allow player to make a small base or use insurgent controlled locations
    • abandoned vehicles and weapons dropped on the ground by player should disappear when player leaves the area
    • allow player to deposit weapons in 'stash' locations in addition to selling them to L'Ensemble
    • allow vehicles parked in insurgent controlled locations to not disappear
  • allow insurgents to completely destroy checkpoints and bases by blowing up the buildings
    • this way gendarmes, CSAT don't come back and insurgents gain territory
  • maybe it is a bug, but after wiping out gendarme base and Katkoula there are no gendarmes or CSAT soldiers coming back
    • when L'Ensemble reaches level 2 allow them to take control of the captured bases and areas (maybe randomly)
    • make gendarmes and CSAT attack the newly insurgent controlled areas
