Second mission, stairs / foyer area.

This can be a royal pain in the arse if you arent the best at shooters in the world, especially on Realistic.

Basically during this section you start off on the ground floor and work your way up the stairs fighting hordes of Tango's as you go, there are also machine gun nest's to contend with and not a lot of cover.

So here's the easy way.....this area's trigger's / AI is totally shafted.

The enemy Tango's appear when you walk over a certain invisible trigger point... so after the first wave position your two companions behind the cover in the middle of the open foyer area, have them facing the stairs.

Now you stand up, dont crouch because you need speed for this..now run up the first flight of stairs, turn around and run back down the stairs to where you entered the foyer.

Going up the stairs triggered the tangos, they will now funnel down the stairs and be slaughtered by your AI allys.

Rinse repeat, after three or so waves run up the next set of stairs as well....because the trigger point moves higher up..keep going and you will kill the lot with ease.

beat it yesterday couple tries after i read this thread. the hard part is really just positioning your team right really. position them on the first sublevel of the stairs (halfway to the 2nd floor behind a rail post). then go up the second set of stairs to 2nd floor and run back down and let your guys basically kill everyone. after that the 3rd and 4th floor shouldnt be too bad.
