Operation Overlord is one of the most famous events of World War 2, and fittinglu enough, Mission 6: Liberation takes us behind enemy lines on a mission to Liberate our little corner of France from the Nazi tyranny.
This is quite a large level with several new objectives popping up as we travel. So let’s have a look at what we will be up against.
Mission 6: Liberation - Objectives
As a quick overview of this level, it is probably the best so far in terms of out-and-out sniping opportunities. There are plenty of sniper nests (for you, and the Germans to be fair) that give a great tactical overview of the land. If you play your cards right you should be able to get away with only minimal close-quarters fighting.
Liberate the Southern town
German flak cannons have scattered the American Airborne assault, a rallying point will need to be secured to push further inland. Secure the town to establish a command post for the US Rangers.
Neutralise Defences (x3)
- The Germans have a sniper positioned in the tower
- German communications are controlled from their Field HQ
Secure a crossing
- Option A) Investigate the Western Bridge
- Option B) Investigate the Eastern Bridge
Kill snipers (x3)
Liberate the Northern town
- Investigate the town
- Connect the Barricade explosives
- Destroy the Tiger Tank
Hint: There are several Panzerfausts lying around which will make things easier, but the tank can only be destroyed from the rear. We missed with a couple of shots, but had still managed to damage the tank enough, but to finish it off we had to scurry around the back, avoiding its guns, and put an armour piercing round into its exposed engine. It was actually a lot more satisfying that way!
Investigate the crashed glider site and locate the Radio operator
- Investigate the trenches
Neutralise Anti_Air guns (x3)
Defuse Bridge explosives
Hint: You can blow the door to the bunker to find the radio operator, but if you kill all the Germans in the trenches, you will find an officer who has the bunker key on his person.
