- "Gentlemen, we fought a whole bunch of these, so I know you know what to do. But indulge me. Move quickly, cover your buddies, don't bunch up. And for heaven's sake, don't stop moving until we reached those bunkers."
- — Cpt. Foley's speech in the beginning of the level
The following sections are a walkthrough.
Getting Started Edit
The player will spawn next to a bunker. After a speech, Foley and his allies will begin moving. Follow them, and don't get worried if a mortar strikes. If the player is hit in the center, damage will be taken and the player will experience severe shell shock. Keep following the team until getting to a path in the snow.
The First Bunker Edit
The player should follow the path until getting past three troops that attack on the right. Instead of following the path, get on the hill in front and take a left to the end of the hill, and go forward until seeing a bunker. There's an unaware MG42 gunner sitting in a hole, an easy target for sniping. Next, go down until a tent on the right side is visible. There's an MG42 gunner in that tent, snipe him and the troops around him.
When they're out, go near the bunker's right side, Using the SMG wipe out anybody that gets in the way. A door on the left is in the rear.
There are 2 ways in handling the troops inside; waiting for them to come out and mow them down with the SMG before they notice, or toss grenades in each of the rooms. Either way, they'll be dead, so go inside and take a right.
The player will be in a room with a medium medikit and a grenade box next to it. Grab them, then go to the desk and grab the flashing Intel. When retrieved, get out and take a left.
The Second Bunker Edit
Keep going left until seeing another bunker. Move forward just enough so that a gunner in the front can be seen, then snipe him. When he's out, go to the right and eliminate any other threats. As soon as everybody there is dead, turn right and begin firing at the 88mm FlaK gun crew on top of the hill. The player might need to get closer and/or throw a grenade, but they'll go down quickly. If the player needs grenades, they can be accessed near the gun, but otherwise go to the back of the building and turn left, towards the entrance to the bunker.
As usual, the player can either use grenades to flush out any enemies, or use the SMG. When they're dead, take a right to enter a communication room. There's a Panzerfaust and grenade box near the beds, and the Intel piece is on the table to the right when entering the room.
Tank Destroying Edit
After grabbing the Intel, go outside and Foley will tell the player that there are Panzer IV-H tanks approaching near the 88mm FlaK gun on the top of the hill.
The player can destroy the tanks in one of two ways:
- Use the 88mm FlaK gun on them.
- Grab Panzerfausts from the bunker.
If using the FlaK gun, the player has a small amount of time to destroy the Panzer tanks before one of the tanks lock onto and killing the player with the cannon. In addition, the user needs to readjust the gun so that it's pointing towards the path.
Since tha Flak gun is more effective, this is the best option. However, due to its slow motion, it is recommendable to turn it towards the road before grabbing the documents.
After destroying the tanks, the level is completed.
