1 - You got time to duck? | Main missions FC3: Blood Dragon Guide
Last update: Wednesday, May 11, 2016
Attack the base
After quite long intro movie you'' find yourself in the helicopter attacking the enemy base. The first part of the mission is typically arcade and your objective is to make as much havoc as you can while using the stationary gun. When you get seriously injured, the game will inform you about possibility of healing (hold proper key/button). After a while you'll watch another cut-scene, after which you'll be able to control Rex again, but this time on the ground.
Eliminate all cyber-soldiers
Follow on-screen instructions - the game will familiarize you with controls basics. After tutorial you'll get your first goal marked. Head left, towards the blueish tree and sprint to jump over the crack.
The next goal is a pink passage under rocks - crouch to get inside and continue further. On the other side you'll come across your first opponent. The game will suggest taking him down by sneaking from behind and using the blade.
Follow the game instructions and use cybereye to mark nearby soldiers. Thanks to that you can easily monitor their movements and identify types of enemy (heavy or sniper for example). Another useful thing is the possibility to distract the enemy with D20 dice. Use the proper key/button to throw the dice and force the nearby soldier to move towards its sound. Now get him from behind and take him down.
Move forwards, toward three soldiers visible in a distance. The game will present you another impressive way of dealing with enemies - chain takedown. When you take down the first enemy by surprise, you'll have opportunity to get rid of nearby opponents by pressing proper key/button until you kill all of them.
When it is over, move to the left towards the next marker. Climb the platform and the metal ledge. The game will display bunch of information about being detected by enemies, shooting, aiming, etc.
After regaining control over Rex, go to the left and enter the building there. You'll see two soldiers inside and the game will let you know another method of dealing with more than one soldier at the same time. Carefully approach the first soldier and take him down, pointing your cursor at another enemy. When you see a special symbol over his head, press the proper key/button. Rex will automatically throw a shuriken at him. Move forwards, watching out for the car patrolling the base.
Don't let them trigger the alarms
Head left, sneaking behind containers. The game will suggest you to disable alarms. Almost every larger complex has alarm system, which when activated will call for reinforcements. When it is enabled, you'll have a limited time to destroy all alarm switches before reinforcements arrive. This system can be also completely disabled but you have to stay unnoticed by enemies because otherwise they will start the alarm.
After a while you'll get to the tower with alarm switch at its gate. Disable it. Now you can act in two ways - frontally attack enemies in the base or try to neutralize them silently (almost each action is rewarded with cyberpoints, which allows you to get to the next skill level - takedowns or spectacular elimination are rewarded with more points). If you have chosen the second option, I suggest going up the tower (the ladder is inside).
Take down the soldier at the top of the tower and use the cybereye to locate the rest of opponent. Use the zipline to slide to the rooftop of the nearby building.
Go down the ladder to get inside the building. Collect ammo lying nearby dead soldier. Jump down the soldier(s) visible on the ground floor and Rex will automatically take him (them) down. Inside the building you can find ammo, health pack and armor among other things. Watch out and do not get being seen by enemies on the distance building - there is a sniper among them.
Go out the building heading towards the tower and turn right. There is a single soldier along your way - take him down watching for the car. Keep heading left to get to the building with the sniper from the side (there are platform leading up the building on both its sides).
Take the sniper down and deal with the rest of soldiers. Use the dice to distract them and eliminate them one by one. If they notice your presence and start shooting, kill the elite soldier first (he is marked yellow). He is tougher than others.
Meet Spider at bunker entrance
Head towards the bunker, which is opened by Spider in the meantime. Enter inside and follow corridors carefully.
Defend Spider, kill all enemies
Your task is to eliminate all enemies along your way and to protect Spider (when he dies, you fail the mission). In one of corridors you'll come across few enemies. Surprise them by sneaking close to them and use the chain takedown technique.
Watch out, because the heavy soldier joins the battle. Because at this point Rex is not able to take down this type of enemies with his blade, change your weapons for some better firepower and kill him (headshots are very effective). Follow Spider, who will open the next door.
Replenish ammo and heal yourself. If you prefer to eliminate enemies silently, follow the game suggestions and climb up the catwalk under the ceiling. Now go to the next room. Use the cybereye to locate enemies. You'll be warned against Molotox unit - according to the name they throw Molotov cocktails and have a nasty habit of striving for close combat. Fortunately, if you play it well, you can get rid of both opponents visible in a distance by jumping down on them from the catwalk - Rex will kill them automatically.
After that locate the nearby exit to the stairs leading down. Thanks to that you'll get to the alarm switch - watch out for the soldier patrolling the nearby corridor.
Disable the alarm. Depending on your preferences, return up and continue silent elimination of opponents or start attacking them with your guns. After fights pick up credits from tables and replenish ammo and grenades if needed. There is also a credit box in one of the rooms. Pilfer it.
Reach control room
Follow Spider, who will open the door to the control room with huge missile inside. Join him. He has located the main computer frame. Now watch the cut-scene.
Protect Spider as he hacks
While Spider tries to hack the computer, you have to protect him. Enemy soldiers will start attacking you from all sides. Try to stop them from killing Spider (and you of course).
Get to missile panel
Now you have to get to the missile control panel. Watch out for enemy fire (there is at least one heavy soldier among them) and head towards the marked objective. Approach the elevator and watch another cut-scene.
