Chapter 2 Main Missions

Chapter 2 Main Missions

M36 - Footprints of Phantoms (Total Stealth)

# Mission Task Mandatory/Optional
1 Eliminated all Walker Gears. Mandatory
2 Extracted two prisoners held at Ditadi Abandoned Village. Optional
3 Extracted all Walker Gears. Optional
4 Picked a Digitalis (Lutea) plant at Ditadi Abandoned Village. Optional
5 Extracted a truck at Ditadi Abandoned Village. Optional

This mission is identical, mission tasks and objectives, to the original version of Footprints of Phantoms. The Total Stealth set of rules sounds just like the name; you need to make sure you are not seen at all (red warning). If this happens, then it is automatically a game over, so you have to go back to the previous checkpoint. As with the other rulesets, Chicken Hat and Reflex Mode are disabled.

The toughest part of this mission is that you can’t be seen at all, so you will need to be absolutely sure that you take your time (unless going for the S Rank). D-Dog is invaluable here, as knowing the locations of the enemies is much more important than using someone like Quiet to kill them, although it’s certainly possible to have her wipe out the entire camp without you entering it.
