Woof. This one was a tricky beast. Sam goes into the very heart of evil: Iran’s Qods Force headquarters to find proof that Iran had nothing to do with the Blacklist. There are several instances in this mission where guards are alerted to your presence, and your only option is to knock every last stinking Iranian guard out. The good news is that if you’re able to score multiple knockouts in a short amount of time, you can rack up more points than you would by just sneaking past them.
Anyway, just follow our handy dandy guide and you’ll be able to get through stealthily, grab the laptop, the dead drop, and the HVT, maximizing your mission score and impressing that girl in your class who doesn’t think your cool but boy will she ever when she sees your World Rank in Splinter Cell: Blacklist!
