Two of your men have been taken by the enemy and you need to rescue them. This mission is timed, but does not have a visible timer. One of the men managed to escape, but was surrounded by enemies before radio contact was cut off, while the other ally is still being held captive in one of the camps. Luckily, both of the agents are marked on your map as soon as you begin, with the only guess work involved being which one to go to first.

Land at the northern of the two landing zones and head to the closer of the two markers, which will be the escapee. If you bring along D-Dog, you will notice that there are quite a few enemies in the way, so put the ones in your path to sleep, then make your way to the downed ally. You can still aim and shoot with your weapon while holding him, which you will likely need to do as you get to a safe spot for extraction.

The first soldiers location (left) whom you should to a safe location and then extract him (right).

The other agent is located inside of Kiziba Camp and should you move fast enough, you won’t have to worry about the search party returning to their posts. Watch out for the enemies hanging around the main building as you find the ally inside of the ditch.

The second agent is in a ditch (left) so pick him up and carry him to the chopper for extraction (right).

It turns out that he is too injured for Fulton extraction, so you’ll have to resort to a helicopter. Call one in at a nearby landing zone, then carefully make your way there, loading him and yourself to finish the mission.

Mission Task 3

The two CFA officials wear black masks and will be sent to kill the one prisoner located inside of Kiziba Camp eventually (they come by vehicle).

Mission Task 4

The general prisoner is located inside of a wooden house that is up on the hill right outside the main camp.

Mission Task 5

Despite the description, there are specific enemies you must extract in order to complete this mission task. When you start the mission, choose the northern landing zone to begin near a road. You’ll find two jeeps nearby that will be called to help search for the escaped prisoner. You will need to extract the four enemies that occupy these jeeps.

Mission Task 6

The transport truck can be found in Kiziba Camp and the driver should be close by. If you’re having trouble finding the driver, it’s pretty much trial and error as you go after all of the enemies; this is especially true if you cause a commotion and alert the enemies.
