Chapter 2 Main Missions

M33 - C2W (Subsistence)

# Mission Task Mandatory/Optional
1 Identified the comms equipment at the Eastern Communications Post. Optional
2 Destroyed the comms equipment at the Eastern Communications Post. Mandatory (see note below)
3 Secured the rough diamonds hidden near the Eastern Communications Post. Optional
4 Destroyed the transmitter at the Eastern Communications Post. Mandatory (see note below)
5 Extracted 2 prisoners being held at Wialo Village. Optional
6 Extracted the materials container from the Eastern Communications Post. Optional

Note: You are only required to finish one of the two Mandatory tasks listed above, with the other one becoming optional. It doesn’t matter which one you do.

This mission is identical, mission tasks and objectives, to the original version of C2W. However, the Subsistence rule starts you with nothing but your binoculars and your Fulton Device. Everything else will need to be acquired in the field, usually from enemies. You cannot bring a Buddy and neither can call in supply drops or support attacks. The Chicken Hat and Reflex Mode are also disabled.

By doing the method below, you can safely (almost) sit in the dispatch helicopter and shoot the three comms equipment pieces.

Easy Strategy

There is one method that makes this mission very easy, where you don’t even need to leave the helicopter. Go back to the regular version of this mission and destroy the anti-air radar, which will unlock a landing zone at the exact place where the mission takes place. You can shoot the three dishes with the minigun from the chopper, then simply wait until the chopper leaves to finish the mission with an easy S-Rank.
