HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS

KEYPAD CODES AND HINTS
Keypad Codes: Mission 1, Police Station:
Blaustein's Back Door: 091772
Keypad Codes: Mission 4, CIA Headquarters: Technical Services Room: 7687, Backup Battery Room: 110598, Storage Room: 2977, Main Server Room: 2019, Weapons Testing Department: 110700, Smoking Area Door: 0614.
Chinese Embassy: Code numbers: In part two, after the checkpoint you will come down the trap door to a tunnel with the guard. You must to enter three code numbers following a guard using your thermal goggles. The codes are: "1456", "1834", and "7921".
Thermal goggle keypad readings: To read the heat signature on a keypad, you can either walk up to the keypad and look at it with the heat goggles on, use sniper mode at a distance with the heat goggles on, or activate the keypad and turn on your heat goggles there. The order of the buttons will be as follows, based on color: Deep Blue, Blue, Light Blue, Green, Light Green, Yellow, Orange, Red. For example, if you had a Deep Blue button at 1, a Light Green button at 3, a Light Blue button at 4, and a Orange-Ish Red button at 6, the code would be 1-4-3-6.
Thermal goggle keypad readings (2): This trick where you use your thermal goggles to read the code punched in by a guard is extremely useful, but only available in the second Chinese Embassy mission as the current temperature in the Embassy is low enough for you to notice a difference on the buttons that were pressed by the guard. The buttons go from a deep red color to a deep blue color. Look for the button that is slightly different from most of the other buttons. Then, look for a lighter blue button and so on. following green, yellow, orange and finally red.

GENERAL HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS
Disabling wall mines:
Slowly move right up to them, so you are standing in front. And then press and hold the X button to highlight the action. Let go when the light is green. The removing animation takes a couple of seconds, but the whole thing pivots around pressing/releasing the button when it is green.
Save ammunition: If you find a room being patrolled by a guard or worker, wait until he leaves, then turn off the light switch. When he returns, he will immediately move to the light switch to turn it on. At this point, his back should be turned to you. Quietly sneak up and either grab or punch him without firing your weapon.
Avoiding detection: Always try to stay in shadows or bushes; crouch when walking around; try to take someone hostage before shooting them; always try to use your night vision/thermo goggles just to check to see if there is anything to get around you; and drag bodies into dark corners.
Retrieving Sticky Camera: To retrieve a Sticky Camera that is too high to reach, shoot it with the sniper rifle or the handgun. It will fall to the ground.
Knockouts with Sticky Cameras: Use the following trick to have essentially unlimited ammunition for knocking out enemies. This does not work until after you have found the SC-20K and have Sticky Cameras. If you are close to an enemy and want to knock him out, shoot him in the head with a Sticky Camera. It will knock out your enemy, and you can then pick the camera up off of the ground.
Knockouts with Sticky Cameras (2): For a convenient attack on a guard or character without being noticed, fire a Sticky Camera (not a Diversion Camera) at your targets' head. Due to gravity, aim slightly higher, near the top of the head or above it. This saves bullets, eliminates the risk of being seen, and you can pick up the cameras and use them again.
Use Diversion Cameras to take out large groups: In the levels in the game after you gain the SC-20K, you can easily take out large groups of enemies using the Diversion Cameras. First, find a good hiding place. Fire a Diversion Camera at the first guard. Make sure you hit him in the head. Then, all the other guards will approach to investigate. You can now easily gas them.
Hiding: You cannot be seen when hiding in dark places. Shoot the lights to make it dark, but make sure that there are no guards around. Do not stay in the light too long.
Faster manual lockpick: When using the manual lockpick, instead of rotating it slowly as the game suggests, press the Analog-stick in one of the four diagonal corners, as the "rumble" will always be in one of those directions. This is much quicker.
Blocking doors: If you have someone chasing you, run out a door, and when it closes, stand in front of the door for awhile. The guard will sometimes try to open it before he gives up. Note: The door must open towards you, and not towards the enemy. The game can crash sometimes when you do this. If the guard starts shooting at the door, you must open it quickly. Otherwise, the game will glitch and you will be invisible to the enemy and no event triggers will start.
Dropping down from high locations silently: If jumping at a place that is a long way down, you will probably die or get hurt. If there is a guard nearby, try to jump down on him so that he takes the damage. Note: You can go into the silent drop while hitting him, so nobody will hear him scream. If there are no guards nearby, go into the silent drop, and when you touch the ground, quickly hold Jump. If done correctly, you will only get about 25% of the damage that you would normally receive by such a drop... You can land quieter by crouching immediately before you hit the ground.
Shooting lights accurately: When you want to shoot out a light and need make it accurate, turn on your heat vision. You should be able to knock out the light faster and easier.
Sniping with the SC-20K: When using the sniper mode of the SC-20K, you can hold L1 to make Sam hold his breath and aim more accurately. You can use this to clear out rooms or open areas from afar without letting anyone spot you. The safest way is to wait for a guard to stop in his tracks. Then, hold L1, set the target on his head and take the shot. This is extremely helpful in the first few levels from when you pickup the SC-20K. However, when you get to the Abbatoir mission, you must be extremely careful as the guards can see you from a lot further, can see you in the shadows, and also have more powerful weapons. You must exercise extreme caution. From Abbatoir onwards, if there are multiple guards in the one room, your best choice of action is to use a smoke grenade, if they are bunched up. If not. then do not go in commando-style because the guards from here on out are much more powerful than in previous levels.
Rifle rapid-fire: Equip the rifle and press L3. The bullets on the screen will be a bit darker. This indicates that you have switched to rapid-fire mode. Be careful, as you cannot simply hold the trigger as you could before; the gun will shoot as much until you release.
Better sniper mode accuracy: For better accuracy on sniper mode, hold L1. Note: This may take a few seconds to start.
Flares: If you are pinned down by a turret, throw a flare across it. The turret will be distracted for a moment, which may be long enough for you to sneak behind it and disable it.
Escaping a room full of soldiers: Take a sticky camera or smoke grenades and throw it near where the most guards are located. For the sticky camera, a control bar that tells you how to make a noise or use smoke will appear at the bottom of the screen. Throw the smoke grenade and the smoke should knock out some guards. When the smoke appears from the grenade(s), it is your chance to run for it .
Knock out an enemy: To knock out an enemy without killing him, equip the sticky camera and shoot it at his head. Aim slightly above the head to compensate for gravity. After he is down, pick up the sticky camera and use it again....You can throw bottles to knock out guards. You must aim and hit them in the head.
Taking out two guards: Shoot a sticky camera near the guard closest to you. When he approaches, use the gas to knock him out. The other guard will approach to investigate. You must either shoot him with a non lethal round if you cannot have casualties, or take him out with a head shot if killing is sanctioned. This has to be done correctly or he will revive the guard that you knocked out.
Eliminating guard threat without ammunition: (Method 1) If you do not have ammunition and you find two guards, sneak up to one and take him hostage. Make sure that your hostage is facing the other guard or he will shoot you. (Method 2) If you do not have ammunition, hide in the shadows and wait for a guard to come up to you (or slowly creep up to him) then press R1 to punch him. Use two punches to knock out someone. (Method 3) If you need to knock out many guards without killing them, look around for a water puddle. Try to lure them into it, then shoot a Sticky Shocker into the water. This will knock many of them out. This works with any body of water, including the sewers in the Chinese Embassy level.
Luring your enemy: To do this, find a can or glass bottle to pick up. Once obtained, move to a location, preferably dark. While hidden, throw the can or bottle to an open area with an enemy nearby. When thrown, the enemy will wonder what happened and walk towards that location. After you have drawn him out, you can take him out for an easy kill.
Hiding bodies: After you have disposed of enemies in an area, make sure that you still hide them, even though no one is nearby. Before going to another checkpoint, the alarm may ring, and it will say that a body was found. Try to hide all bodies in hidden areas for best results.
Holding people hostage: When you see a civilian, sneak up behind him then press X when it says "Grab Character". Then, if there are guards in front of you, he will not shoot you. Note :If there are guards in front and behind, left, or right of you, the person not facing the civilian will shoot you. Also, if you turn your back to the enemy they will shoot you. If you want to shoot someone will holding them hostage, press R2 then aim and fire. If you aim, the enemy will shoot you. If you want to release the hostage, press R1 to knock him out.
Quickly drop body: When moving a body. equip your weapon. This will automatically drop the body.
Hide face: Have the diversionary camera equipped with the SC-10. Press L1 button before you zoom in and fire it at a wall. If Sam is close to the wall, he will put his hand in front of the camera to hide his face. You can try this with any sticky camera, but you need to be close to the wall you shoot it on for him to cover it.
