How are you supposed to plant the beacons? Do you need to get out of your helicopter and do it on foot or do i do it while still in the helicopter? Everytime i even go NEAR the buulding like 6 rockets come along and blow my helicopter into peices :( Thnx in advance

BTW Im using the xbox version.

You use the helicopter to get up there then you have to go on foot to plant the beacons, go close to the red rings and you will get a text hint in the corner what to do.

Here is how I went about that mission:

In the chopper, went up high (real high) then, I jumped.. free fall down to the highest point (where the beacon is in the back at highest point)

Land there, place becon. Then, the large area where the next becom is (near all the silos ect..)

Head that way from first becon, jump off mountain side, almost immediately (very brief free fall) open your chute, you can then glide to the next one, just circle to make sure you land up on the building so you do not have to run up.

Next.. From the 2nd becon, you can jump off from it (semi high point) immediatly open your chute, you should be able to glide all the way down to the last becon.

From there, steal one of the AI's vehicles, preferably the higher armored ones, and there is a backroad there to take you up the mountain to the location where you program the missles.

After that.. off to the last part (wont spoil last part)

Anyhow, that was how it worked for me.

btw, anyone notice that chopper takes no dmg when you ditch it in the air?? I found it halfway up the backroad and was still usable..

Aiight, for your viewing pleasure, here is Mission 12 done the way I did it as mentioned above.

And.. please excuse that it is not running smoothly, game started the slowdown thing again when I reached the location where the mission starts and you hop in the chopper. :/ The stuttering you see is actually being caused by the slow mo effect + fraps running. I usualy don't get that, butmy pc has not been rebooted in a few days so, possibly needs it. (Oh, wait, Windows, most definately needs it)

Since I did not want to sit here and try recording several times in case I failed lol.. I decided to look up a cheat online, well, could not find cheats, but found a trainer, so.. I am using it in this video, as you can tell, im not too worried about being shot lol :P But, seriously I do not recommend cheating as it just ruins game play. But did give me a chance to notice some things since I can stand around shooting whatever I want. Seems bullets cannot pass between railing in this game, :( Need to work on that collision detection Avalanche! :P (small quirk, no biggie)

I didn't realize I had the "record sound" option in fraps turned off 0o. sorry.

Both Videos can be considered "Spoilers" So please, if you want to figure it out on your own, or figure out your own way do not view these..

Video 2 is the second part of mission 12, probably more of a spoiler than the 1st, I just put it up for anyone wanting to know where the back road was and how to go about getting the mission complete. Again, don't view if you hate spoilers...

Enjoy!
