How to unlock: Finish "Welcome to the New World".
Mission walkthrough: After going to "The Stranger", you will see a cut-scene, after which you will wake up on the territory of a hostile property. When your tormentor has moved away, sway sideways to free yourself from the ropes. Then quickly press Triangle/Y and defend yourself against the attack.
Keep following Leon and don't make any detours. Your companion will always instruct you were to stand, etc., so reaching the prisoners is pretty straightforward and quite easy. Don't charge, follow the instructions calmly and you'll reach the prisoners.
When you reach the hanged men, quickly toggle bullet time, aim at the three ropes and shoot them to save the men. Then, kill the guard and prepare to fight the rest of your opponents.
The end of the mission is a classic shootout. You must kill the remaining enemies in the ruins. When you complete this task, the mission is over.
