Ghost Recon questions

  1. I've been replaying the third mission in
    Grecon over and over. The reason why is that I keep losing so many guys. I hate to do that because I lose their experience for later missions. Should I (A): just go on; (B): Outfit my team with new guys; or (C): keep replaying until I complete the mission with a full team. (C) seems impossible. If I do keep replaying till I can get it 'right' does anybody have any good strategy for killing the tanks, all those bad guys and saving the U.N guys. (wasted effort if you ask me but, the only way to win)?

    what diffuculty are you playing on?
    What mission is level three, describe it.

    I played through the game on the medium setting, and never really had a problem. Just go slow, and make sure you have your teams work together and cover each other

    I think you have it on Elite :p. The 3rd mission is where you take out the Russian tank convoy, you have to destroy the 2 patrols and prevent the HQ from being breached. I went through that mission about 4 times on Elite, it was VERY frustrating. I kept getting my damn demolitions expert sawed apart by the tanks :mad: But I eventually beat it. If you lost some key specialists on that mission, definitely replay it until you get it right. Specialists are vitally important, especially the snipers. Which patrol are you losing the most guys on? Northeast or southwest? If they're all in one, take out one patrol with all your guys then move to the next. If it gets too repetitive, give up and enjoy the rest of the 2001 GOTY.

    Save and load

    Just save VERY often. I haven't had one guy get wounded yet on normal, and I'm somewhere around the 6th mission.

    Honestly, I never use my other teams. I just lock them up in a cottage or something and take my sniper out with the best support guy I have. It's worked out well so far.

    another not to do on that lever is go out onto the railroad tracks, up on top. If you do that you will get raped by enemy fire. Take out the two patrols, and then quickly get your men back down to where the tank column comes in. Don't go towards it, let it come to you. Try to have 2 machine guys, and take manual control of the guy with the anti-tank rockets. Then take 'em out!

    Holy cats

    Wow I just walked through the level his time. What I failed to do before was to upgrade my men. DOH!!! .
    I sent a riflman upgraded to level 4 leader with a level 3 (weapon)
    support guy to cover the south hill. My upgraded sniper & demo team were placed at the shack. I took a level 3 weapon support guy w/ me (a low level rifleman) up the north hill to take out the north patrol.
    It's amazing how much more fun a game can be when yo've learned to use most of the features. I now have to change my vote for favorite game from MoH back to Grecon
