TIME AND PLACE: December 8, 1942; Stalingrad
YOU ARE: Private Vasili Ivanovich Koslov
During this mission you will be connecting parts of the telephone wire. Start off by running straight (screen 1). You don't have to wait for other team members. They will take care of themselves. After a while you should reach crossroads. DON'T turn right because there are heavy machine guns out there. Instead, keep running straight. Now you can enter the right building.
Enter the destroyed building. Duck behind cover and start shooting at the enemy soldiers (screen 1). The rifle you have right now is made for these kind of situations. You shouldn't have any problems with eliminating the Nazis. Keep moving forward (screen 2). Remember to use all possible cover. You mustn't forget about reloading your weapon.
You should now repair the first part of the telephone line. Press F in order to link both cables (screen 1). Before you go any further be sure to take out a guy who's crouching by a heavy machine gun. If you stand correctly, you shouldn't have any problems eliminating him (screen 2). Keep moving forward.
You should now get closer to the neutralized machine gun position. From this point you will be able to kill other German soldiers (screen 1). You can throw them a couple of grenades if you want to. This is not necessary. After you take care of the surrounding enemies run to the destroyed wall. You will find a second part of the destroyed line here (screen 2).
Before you take care of the telephone wire you will have to kill a group of German soldiers. They will appear in one of the surrounding buildings. Bear in mind that they may throw some grenades at you (screen 1). You have to avoid them at all costs. Repair the cables. You can now proceed to the nearest building (screen 2).
You have to watch out because there are more soldiers nearby (screen 1). Take them out. It would be wise to lean out a lot. You may want to take a machine gun from one of the killed soldiers. Continue moving forward. Start shooting at the soldiers hiding on the lower floor (screen 2). Remember that you have wide field of fire. Use this to your advantage.
After you take care of this problem try getting closer to the dead soldiers. Hide behind one of the crates (screen 1). If the coast is clear, start moving forward. In a couple of seconds you should encounter a second group of German soldiers (screen 2). I would recommend lying down on the ground to get better aim. You must remember to keep moving forward. This is very important, because it's the only way to keep enemies from respawning on the map.
There's a machine gun post at the other end of this street. It would be best to get closer. Throw a couple of grenades there to get rid off the enemy soldiers (screen 1). You can also use smoke grenades, especially when running between covers. After you take care of the enemy forces repair the third part of the telephone wire (screen 2).
You should now go to the nearest building. Watch out because there are a lot of enemy soldiers out there (screen 1). You've got two choices - you can either sacrifice a couple of grenades, or wait for the other members of the team and storm the place together. Be sure to check all rooms (screen 2). Some Nazis may be hiding behind crates and house equipment. Remember to use all possible covers.
Leave the building. You must be very careful, because there are additional enemy soldiers nearby. The Nazis are hiding mostly in the ruins of the destroyed buildings. Be sure to check all floors, including the highest one (screen 1). One of the enemy soldiers will try to smash you with the cupboard. That's a huge mistake, because doing that he accidentally exposed himself (screen 2). Kill him.
You can now use the stairs. They will be on your right. While doing that you should also turn around and starting shooting at the enemy soldiers (screen 1). If you're lucky they won't even get to the nearest cover. Now you can take care of the telephone wire (screen 2). There are two more spots to find.
You can now continue to the first floor. You will encounter additional units here (screen 1). It would be wise to throw at least two grenades on the destroyed roof. There's a MG-42 stationed in here. Use it. Start shooting at the German soldiers (screen 2). After a couple of seconds allied units will start to appear. DO NOT shoot them! Instead, help them to get rid off the enemy forces.
After you deal with the enemy soldiers leave the MG-42 and turn around. Repair the next part of the telephone wire (screen 1). Continue moving forward. You should choose the left path. It leads to unexplored regions of the map. You should come across a small bridge made of the wooden planks. Use it to get to the other side (screen 2). Be sure to reload your current weapon.
You will be surprised by a small group of enemy soldiers. They are hiding behind the sandbags. Move to the left so you can get a better shot and avoid most of the attacks (screen 1). Turn left and clear all surrounding rooms (screen 2).
Keep moving forward. Kill everything that stands in your way (screen 1). Remember that you aren't rushed by anything. It would be best to check your surroundings. This way you won't avoid anyone. You should reach new stairs leading to the basement (screen 2). Start moving forward. Kill the enemies that tried to surprise you.
Connect the last two wires. This way you will complete the first main objective of this mission (screen 1). Now you have to find a radio station and use it. Continue moving forward. You will be encountering massive enemy forces (screen 2). Use your grenades wisely.
Continue the exploration of the whole complex (screen 1). Bear in mind that you're fighting in close quarters. Don't forget about the grenades. It's also good to lean out a lot. After you've reached your destination pick up the sticky bombs (they're lying on the crates). Now you can use the radio (screen 2) to receive new orders. You will have to blow up THREE (!!) tanks that are currently patrolling the whole area.
Keep moving forward. You will be attacked by some new soldiers near the stairs (screen 1). Kill them and get back to the ground floor. Another group is waiting by the destroyed exit (screen 2). Just as before, watch out for the soldiers located on higher levels. Eliminating them should be considered an absolute priority.
You should now reach a long hallway with a lot of windows on the right (screen 1). On the other side you should notice new enemies and a tank. Don't attack anyone just yet. Continue moving to the end of the hallway. Use your rifle to eliminate some of the soldiers (screen 2). You shouldn't attract too much attention to yourself, especially since the area is patrolled by a tank.
After getting rid off visible enemy soldiers start RUNNING towards the opposite building. Be sure to reload your weapon there (screen 1). Head on to the next room. Eliminate all the Nazis that have decided to station here (screen 2). Start moving towards the destroyed wall leading to the street itself.
Wait until the enemy tank gets closer to the building you're actually hiding in. Start running towards it. Use one of the marked spots to put a bomb on it (screen 1). Move away so you won't be harmed by a explosion. Bear in mind that the tank has only been immobilized. Thankfully, one of the allied soldiers should appear. He will throw a grenade inside the machine, destroying it once and for all (screen 2). You can continue moving forward (the other two tanks have been marked on your compass).
After a couple of seconds you should encounter new groups of enemy soldiers (screen 1). Find a good cover and start shooting at them. You could also use some grenades, although this is not necessary at the moment. Head on to the right building. You'll end up in a narrow hallway (screen 2). Kill some new soldiers that should appear near the stairs.
You can starting heading towards the exit. Take out all of the nearby soldiers. When you're done with them, start attacking the Germans that are hiding behind some barrels (screen 1). After defeating them, you can take control of their positions. The area is being patrolled by two other tanks. You have to take them out (one by one). After reaching the tallest building climb up and join your squad members (screen 2).
Your teammates should deal with the German soldiers located in this area. Meanwhile you have to destroy one of the remaining tanks. Wait for the machine to get past your current position and start running towards it (screen 1). Set a charge in one of the highlighted spots. Move back and enjoy the explosion (screen 2).
You should wait for the other squad members. They will help to get to the last remaining tank. I would recommend crouching by the stairs on the left (screen 1). From here you will be able to kill most of the enemy soldiers. You will also be protected from their attacks. The tank has parked just around the corner. Use at least one smoke grenade to blind the soldiers sitting inside the machine (screen 2).
First of all, you will have to set a charge in one the highlighted spots. Now hide behind the crates located on your left (screen 1). After the initial explosion the other squad members will help you destroy the tank. Meanwhile you should take care of a couple of remaining enemy soldiers located in this area (screen 2).
Once you've completed all of the primary objectives squad leader should appear on the map. Listen to what he's got to say. After that, follow him (screen 1).
