Desperados 3 - Mission 10
Desperados 3 - Mission 10
Suspect 1 - Judge Arthur McGain. He's sitting on a chair in Cafe Chez Manu without moving. He's one of 3 people with the letters. You can steal the letter or kill McGain and take it from his corpse.
Suspect 3 - Raymond Irving. He's on the move in the Red Lantern brothel, however he will sit on a bench from time to time. He's one of 3 people with the letters. You can steal the letter or kill Irving and take it from his corpse.
Suspect 3 - Ted O'Neill. He's working as the foreman in the Pier 9 area. He's one of 3 people with the letters. You can steal the letter or kill O'Neill and take it from his corpse.
Area where you start the mission. All 3 characters will be here. This is a public area of the city so you don't have to use stealth.
Brothel roof - disguise for Kate. The roof can be accessed by going through a door on the ground level. You can eliminate one of the courtisans, however nearby enemies will make it harder to achieve (some enemies are sleeping, but they can still react to sounds). After taking out the courtisan wear her dress.
Listening in on conversations - freely accessible areas. In order to listen in on the conversations in these locations you don't need any disguises. Simply stop next to the enemies and wait for their conversation to end. You'll receive a tip every time.
Listening in on conversations - locked areas. In order to listen in on the conversations in these locations you must be wearing a disguise from the brothel (blue 2). Even then you still have to use stealth to avoid being seen by the Long Coat enemies.
Brothel. Reaching the main area of the brothel is required to steal from Raymond Irving or to kill him (red 2). It's best to make your way to the roof of the brothel first (blue 2) in order to obatin a disguise for Kate. You can choose between the main entrance (only for disguised Kate) and the roof path. Watch out for a Long Coat stationed on a balcony. There's ammo for the sniper pistol on a smaller roof of the brothel.
Cafe. Reaching the cafe is required to steal from Arthur McGain or to kill him (red 2). All of the entrances to the cafe are guarded. Kate can access them while wearing a disguise (blue 2), but she still has to avoid a Long Coat from the balconies. McCoy can open a door to the roof. It's a good place for sniper attacks with ammo for the sniper pistol, but there are 2 enemies on the roof.
Pier 9. Infiltrating the pier is required to steal from Ted O'Neill or to kill him (red 3). There are two entrances to the pier area and they're both guarded. Kate can enter the pier in disguise (Blue 2) and move around freely (there are no Long Coats). Isabelle can jump into the water and swim to approach some of the enemies easier. A heavy cargo is hanging in the pier - there's an opportunity to drop it on enemies.
Passage to the backalleys. The second part of the New Orleans map is unlocked after getting the correct letter from McGain (red 1), Irving (red 2) or O'Neill (red 3). Team members must meet here and consult on the new plan of action. Kate can enter the backalleys in disguise. McCoy should open the door to the roof - there's also ammo for the sniper pistol there.
First alley. You must watch out for the first guard dog here - it can sniff out Kate even she's using the disguise. There are two paths leading to the second alley, however one of them is slightly less guarded. A sniper is one of the rooftops and it's best that McCoy kills him.
Second alley. Watch out for at least 2 enemies facing the first alley. A Long Coat is patrolling this area and Kate also has to keep avoiding him. McCoy can unlock a door leading to the roof and start using his sniper pistol there. A heavy cargo is hanging above the street - you can reach the mechanism (preferably controlling Kate) and drop the cargo on the Long Coat.
Entrance to the storage yard. Choosing this passageway isn't a good idea, because there's a Long Coat here along with standard enemies. It's best to reach the storage yard using the roof of a nearby building (blue 12).
Ladder to the roof. Choosing the ladder is a much better idea of reaching the storage yard (blue 13). Get rid of 1 guard next to the daller while playing as Kate and bring other characters here. There's a chest with ammo for the sniper pistol on the roof.
Storage yard. You can reach this area by choosing the main entrance (blue 11) or by going through the roof (blue 12) - the second option is better. Watch out for a single Long Coat patrolling this area. You can extinguish multiple oil lamps and also push a tower of crates to crush some enemies. Watch out for 1 sniper - it's best to kill him from the roof.
Office. The entrance to the building is guarded by 2 enemies - use Kate's flirting and Isabelle's 'connection' ability to help yourself out. McCoy must get here and use his skills on the lock. Entering the building will end the mission.
Listening in on conversations - freely accessible areas. In order to listen in on the conversations in these locations you don't need any disguises. Simply stop next to the enemies and wait for their conversation to end. You'll receive a tip every time.

Key points of Desperados 3 - Mission 10

Areas where you can find the suspects (main mission targets)

Important locations on the map

On this page of the Desperados 3 world atlas, you can find a high-quality map of mission 10 - Back Alley Jazz. It it the map of New Orleans, where the action of the mission takes place. Protagonists must find an important NPC and then get to the location where Isabelle's friend - Wayne - is being held. In our walkthrough guide, we have included all of Mission 10's challenges (badges) regarding e.g. completing the mission without killing anyone.

The full Mission 10 walkthrough description can be found on the below pages of this chapter. Our guide also contains links and indications that refer to the map. For example, the designation (M10, 1) indicates that you should look for a red point number 1 on the Mission 10 map, while the designation (M10,5) indicates that you should look for the blue point number 5 on the Mission 10 map.

Mission 10: Markings on the map

  1. Red points mark the locations of Suspects. You can eliminate or rob any of them.
  2. Red dots represent the opponents in New Orleans, while the white dots symbolize the civilians. There are loads of them in the city. They can raise an alarm if, for example, they notice an attack.
  3. We have marked all important locations (worth visiting) with blue points. Descriptions of these areas can be found just below the map.

Mission 10: General information

Mission 10 (Back Alley Jazz) is the first one to take place on the streets of New Orleans - Desperados 3: Mission 10 - map, badges - Mission 10 - Back Alley Jazz - Desperados 3 - game guide

Mission 10 (Back Alley Jazz) is the first one to take place on the streets of New Orleans. In the early part of the level, the characters travel through many public locations and meet a lot of neutral characters. Unfortunately, the presence of large numbers of civilians makes it difficult to eliminate enemies and sneak into forbidden areas marked with red lines. There is a high risk that an attack on any opponent could be recorded by others. However, Kate is able to obtain a prostitute's disguise in this mission and use it to enter inaccessible locations.

The first part of the mission features some nonlinearity and revolves around the three suspects. You can reach all three characters or take action to determine which of the suspects has the right letter to advance to the second stage.

In the second part of the mission, the heroes must pass through many side alleys on their way to the warehouse area. Kate can still rely on her disguise, though in addition to enemy Long Coats she must also be wary of the guard dogs. The overall route through the alleyways is pre-determined, but you can choose different paths along the way and climb onto the roofs of some buildings, which is an ideal proposition for McCoy and his snipers.

Playable characters:

  1. Kate - she is available throughout the entire mission. You can use all of her skills and equipment. There is also an opportunity to get an optional disguise for Kate.
  2. McCoy - he is available throughout the entire mission and you can use all his skills and pieces of equipment immediately.
  3. Isabelle - she is available throughout the entire mission. You can use all of her skills and equipment.

Mission 10: Badges / Challenges

There are a total of 8 badges to collect in Mission 10. We have described all of them below. Challenges are initially hidden, although you can complete them during the first playthrough of the mission.

Challenges are unavailable if you play on the Beginner difficulty level. In order to access the challenges, you need to choose at least the normal difficulty level. The same goes for replaying missions to get the remaining challenges.

Don't kill any suspects

This and the next challenge are mutually exclusive - Desperados 3: Mission 10 - map, badges - Mission 10 - Back Alley Jazz - Desperados 3 - game guide

This and the next challenge are mutually exclusive. Suspects (M10,1) (M10,2) (M10,3) are three people on the map who are in possession of letters. If you investigate properly, you only have to pick up the letter from the one right suspect. In order to win the badge, however, you must reach all three characters.

The game does not allow you to kill any of the suspects. This means you have to rob them as Kate in the guise of a prostitute - when you stand behind the suspect you have to hold down the interaction button. You can't activate pocket theft right away, as you'll be spotted Use our walkthrough guide to figure out how to clear the area and sneak up to each of the suspects.

Kill all suspects

You can eliminate suspects (M10,1)(M10,2)(M10,3) in any way. However, we still recommend sneaking up and relying on Kate's disguise to be able to safely reach the designated NPCs and acquire their letters. If you've already obtained a letter that allows you to advance in the mission, you might decide to shoot the remaining suspects as McCoy from a distance. Alternatively, setting an alarm in the first part of the map won't prevent you from crossing the second part of New Orleans.

Don't jump, and don't use any ladders, ropes or ivies

This is a difficult challenge that is best left for repeating missions at a easy level of difficulty - Desperados 3: Mission 10 - map, badges - Mission 10 - Back Alley Jazz - Desperados 3 - game guide

This is a difficult challenge that is best left for repeating missions at a easy level of difficulty. Prohibitions on jumping and using ladders, ropes, and vines will make it much harder for you to complete the mission. Keep in mind that you can still reach some roofs using building entrances. But you can't jump off the rooftops and you have to go back down the same road. Here are some important information about this Badge:

  1. You can easily get a disguise for Kate (M10.5) because you reach the roof of the house using the door.
  2. Try to eavesdrop on all 6 conversations (M10,3)(M10,4) so that you can easily identify the suspect with the letter. You'll only have to get to one suspect instead of all three.
  3. When crossing the back alleys (M10,9) (M10,10) you can send McCoy to the rooftops to cover Kate, but each time use only the building entrances.
  4. The final part of the mission will be much more troublesome. You can't get into the storage area by climbing a ladder to the roof of the building (M10,12). Instead, you have to choose the main entrance (M10, 11) and this may mean having to deal with an extra Long Coat opponent.

Kill 3 guards using dogs

You will encounter the first guard dog when you reach the first back-alley (M10,9), which is when you find the right letter on one of the suspects - Desperados 3: Mission 10 - map, badges - Mission 10 - Back Alley Jazz - Desperados 3 - game guide

You will encounter the first guard dog when you reach the first back-alley (M10,9), which is when you find the right letter on one of the suspects.

Sneak up on the animal as Isabelle and use her mind-control skills on the dog. The key to success is to choose isolated opponents, i.e. those who are not in the field of view or the hearing range of other enemies. Otherwise, the dog will get shot prematurely. If you don't see any good "candidates" to be bitten by a dog, get rid of uncomfortable opponents before exercising mind control. Do this a total of 3 times.

Don't kill anyone

This is a difficult challenge that is best left for repeating missions at a easy level of difficulty. The ban on killing characters will be particularly troublesome for McCoy - you can't use the sniper rifle to eliminate opponents in hard-to-reach locations. As a result, you have to spend more time distracting or disorienting/blinding these types of characters.

Get information on aliases and locations for all suspects - Gather the codenames and locations for all suspects

The pattern of action is described in detail on the next page of our description of the transition - Desperados 3: Mission 10 - map, badges - Mission 10 - Back Alley Jazz - Desperados 3 - game guide

The pattern of action is described in detail on the next page of our description of the transition. It involves eavesdropping on six conversations in the first part of the mission. Three conversations can be overheard in the public areas of New Orleans (M10,3). Simply stop by the talking characters.

Three more will take place in forbidden locations (M10,4). The solution to this problem is to get a disguise for Kate (M10,2). Even then, in forbidden zones, you must avoid being detected by Long Coats, who can compromise the heroine's disguise. Eavesdrop on conversations from cover so you don't get noticed by Long Coats.

Speedrun: Complete the mission in under 15:00 minutes

Be sure to play at the easy difficulty level, so that you will encounter less problematic opponents on the map, and enemies ' reactions will be slightly slower. Don't visit all three locations with suspects. Acquiring a disguise for Kate is worth the interest, however, because it can be acquired quite quickly and will be useful later to distract some enemies from the other side of the map. Remember to frequently sever and load older records in case too much time is wasted in a given location.

Complete the mission on Hard difficulty

This is the best choice to complete the mission for the first time, although playing at a high level of difficulty you will have to deal with "uncomfortably" spaced opponents. This is especially troublesome when sneaking into suspects, as 2 out of 3 such NPCs are watched by elite enemies of Long Coats. Fortunately, this challenge doesn't have a time limit, and you can save your progress freely.
