Once you’re able to move after landing, don your goggles and keep following the team in front of you until the helicopter crashes nearby. Advance to reach a nearby house and have your weapons ready to take out all the enemies on the first floor.

Once it’s clear, go to the second building and take out enemies that are camping on the patio and sneaking up on you. After that, enter the building, keep your flash grenades handy and use them to blind enemies and take them out on the first floor.

Then head upstairs to clear the second floor of the building and stay alert when you open doors or pass rooms as enemies camped there are ready to ambush you. To use flash grenades to neutralize the threat and eliminate it easily without harming yourself.

Once the second floor is secure, you won’t see Hassan around anymore, so Ghost will lead you and the rest of the team to regroup together and secure the crash site. Slowly head towards the crashed helicopter with weapons on ADS. You can then take off your night vision goggles to see the crash site clearly.

Enter the helicopter through the back and get ready to aim your weapon at the treeline visible from the windows where you can see enemies approaching your location. Protect the right side and rear of the helicopter from enemies approaching, along with those sneaking directly on you and your teammates.

You will encounter three random waves of enemies, so make sure to count your shots and take cover to heal from wounds. When you run out of ammo, there is a backpack on the right side of the helicopter, next to the windows where you can get your supplies.

The waves will also include: APC vehicles that will lay heavy fire on you and your teammates that can cause serious damage. Just keep firing and wait for the air support team to launch a missile strike at them.

Once the area is secured, get out of the helicopter and head through the treeline with the rest of the team. There you reach an open area with no place to cover and suddenly a sniper starts taking out your teammates one by one.

Lie on the ground to fire back safely and see them on top of the building, then keep moving until the second wave of snipers starts firing. Gradually eliminate the threats in front of you as you encounter them.

However, once the gunship provides air support, most of the enemies will be gone. Once the threat is neutralized, enter the building and clear it by taking out all the enemies. While some of them will openly run towards you and start shooting, others will be hidden behind walls and rooms, so proceed with caution.

Once you’ve cleared the first floor, go upstairs and perform a similar exercise to secure the second floor. Take out all the enemies you encounter until you reach a room with a bed, a chair with Hassan’s uniform, and a desk with various papers to interact with. Then you learn that Hassan was there, but managed to escape in time for the attack.

Exit the building, regroup with the team outside and head to the nearby warehouse to explore the area. Go through the main entrance and take out all nearby threats until the area is secured. When you’re done, look for a blue shipping container that you can interact with.

If you interact, you’ll find an advanced mobile missile launcher with an American flag on it that Hassan’s men were guarding, a development that comes as a shock to Shephard and the rest of the team. You have now completed the mission.
