When using snake cam, how do you assign tango's to target first and second?

I can't remember, and hit every key on the damn controller!

Edit, Found it - Back button

the back button (or select if you think ps2)
can only be done in normal single player not in co-op

Waaaaa, help me. I'm playing single player, and am doing so on Realistic level, because I want the 100 point pay-off for doing so. The only problem is that it's SO HARD. I'm still on the first part of the campaign, where you're not in Vegas yet. I've gone down a mine shaft, and these dudes came in and have taken my men hostage, and I have to find them. I've only got my pistol, no night vision or anything.

How the hell do I do this? It's so hard. I'll think I've cleared an area, then a guy will sock me in the chops from the shadows, and without my night vision I can't see him at all. Also, they all use shotguns, so it's a one-hit kill. How should I play this? Strategy? Tips? Please? PLEASE.

Yep take out the first guy on the left with a silencer on the pistol, run round and nick his shotgun. Then take them out one by one from behind cover, If you run low on ammo just nick another one from someone you shoot :)

o my...

finally completed this game last night - took me literally 4 hrs to complete the last 2 levels :-(

last level is really awkward (stupid IRENA!)

Im not liking the twist at the end though, makes me feel as though i wasted my time completing it when that happens!

did the game on realistic soo much more fun -

NOW IM A RAINBOW LEGEND

WOO YA
Give us a clue mate... how the flying fudge do you stop the terrorists shooting the network thing.. in the concert hall on dantes casino mission... Ive tried for about 2 hours tonight. Ive been up on the gangplank thingy... but they just shoot the mainframe really quick.. when im down on the stage i get killed extremely quick..
Ive been stuck a few times on other bits in previous missions but have eventually got past them .. but this bit is doing my nut in.arhghgh.. :suicide:
Cheers

cheers sib.

Its on Dantes Casino so i think its the 2nd to last level.
you go into what looks like a concert hall.. and you go onto the stage where one of your bods hacks into the terrorists mainframe. While he does that you have to protect him and the computer from loads of terrorists attacking.. there is a big f off gun to the right of the computer on the stage but i got shot to pieces using that.

Anyone got any tips on multiplayer? Played first couple of games last nite, pretty much suck at it. Problem was I put loads of rounds in someone, they would'nt go down and then take me out with one or two shots. Do you have to aim for the head or something? How much of a factor is body armour too? I put on the lightest available as any heavier its slows my movement to the extent I don't enjoy controlling my player. Also what weapon and sight selection are peeps having the most success with for close to medium range combat, I'm just picking any random assault rifle at the moment

yes body armour makes a diff and yes u need to be doing head shots

or take a shotgun with you for multiplayer games (close range there is nothing better :clap: )

tips

1. aim for the head
2. use a shotgun
3. heavier armour in the chest area
4. for assault weapons i like the FAMAS (but takes a while to get used to and there is alot of recoil)

The guns in Vegas are the same names as in BA, but they act completely different...... how comes that then, when all Tom Clancy games are suposed to be super realistic ??

The G36C i used ALOT in Black Arrow, but it is ***** in Vegas. :confused:

Can you get your squadmates to delay orders while you get in a position elsewhere

hey nice games last night chaddy, biccy, blicky? whatever. Sorry for falling silent, my wireless headset ran out of charge, haven't stopped using it since I got it, brilliant piece of kit. Anyway it proved to me how rubbish I am still at this game but i had no idea of the levels or in fact the controls half the time so there's time! :devil: next time maybe a different story... :smashin:
Even though I was getting massacred I actually think it's the best Rainbow yet online IMO, plays brilliantly & looks tops on my LCD.

1st time online for us as well, but we are GRAW vets so the controls where sorta 2nd nature.

I've read that only the host can see the face maps. Which seems a bit silly. I suspect that will be patched.

When you send them to a door they will wait there for you to give them a command, which gives you the chance to go elsewhere.

When not at a door you can tell them to follow or hold and at all times you can switch them between Infiltrate (fire when fired upon) and Assault (fire at will). If I don't want them to "fire at will" to give me time to assess the situation and move them and me into good positions, then I'll set them to Infiltrate until I'm ready to bring the pain.
