Last Stand Guide

Introduction

There have been a ton of questions about Last Stand and some people seem to still be having trouble in general with it. I hope to clear all remaining questions with this simple guide. Just follow the videos for good locations (and or tactics). Everyone plays differently, so if what I do doesn't work, you are welcome to go about it however you like. These are far from the best ways to do these levels, but should guide some people to finding what way works best for them. You will be completing waves 15-20 on Realistic. This will unlock the achievement for completing all levels on Last Stand on that said difficulty. Each video is only going over the starting wave (wave 15). By the final wave there will be more enemies for you to dispatch. The nice thing is that more will be respawning at the same time, meaning more clusters for you to grenade. With that said, there shouldn't be much of a problem when there are extra enemies to dispatch. I know I'm not the best speaker (I tend to mumble) so mute me as you wish! The dialogue isn't much extra help to be honest! Also in case you don't watch the first two videos, an EMP can be destroyed, and you will get to retry again. It will fill up to 100% if you retry, no matter what. Sorry in advanced for poor quality video.

Note: You should have beaten both single and cooperative storylines by this point, or else you may be missing certain equipment depending on what you did, or didn't complete. This can still be done with various equipment. The choice is yours.

it is the hardest game mode but my friends and i think its BY FAR the best part of the game. we both use full armor and run around the map non-stop together doing melee take-downs, marking everyone we see then dual marking/executing and repeat.

we basically just free style it on realistic and we are successful almost every time. its the only game mode that is truly a fun challenge. the game really does make u feel like a badass agent and its this mode alone that has made splinter cell the best coop game i've every played. that includes games like gears, L4D, army of two, borderlands, etc.

before i played last stand i thought the game was a about a high 8 but now its at least a 9.5 and the second best game I've played this year. (ME2 first)


sorry for mini rant, this is all just opinion

Brilliant guide Tyger, as with all the others. I've only done the first 3 levels on Last Stand but finding it fairly easy so far. I struggled a bit with the first one to begin with but once I figured out where the enemies come from, it got much easier.

Out of interest, which Last Stand level does everyone find the hardest to do?

Damn "Banya 1" was raping me so freaking hard untill I watched these vids, I probably wouldn't have been able to get throu all "Last Stand" maps w/o em. Thank you for these vids!

Oh and on "Lumber Mill 3" I found it to be a real breeze jumping up on the timber to the left of the EMP from where you start (Since I could nade ppl comming from all directions except from the location you start at.. But just play it smart and plant a nade there that you can detonate later for an easy 4-5 kill later when they've stacked up) and if you'r lazy like me then you can turn off the power for the lights in "Yastreb 1" if you go to the other side of the map before going to the train. xD And once again; THANK YOU!

Thanks for the guide Tyger. I have no idea how I would've beaten some of these otherwise.
Just now took Printing Press by storm following your vids and earned my 70GS for Last Stand completion.
Thanks!

Thanks for the guide. I can say now, that I am four achievements further!

I would add, that on Mozdok Grounds, I found it to be easier standing inside the computer room. There is a lot more shade, and works better if you need to pick up a downed partner.

I wish i would have seen this guide earlier. Me and my friend have been slowly working on these last stand maps about 2-3 of them a day. We have 3 left to do starting from wave 1-20. Takes almost an hour to do 1 of them all the way through. We've beaten two maps without having to retry, but being able to start from wave 15 will be SO much simplier. Thanks a bunch for the guide

Yep, definitely the hardest as the enemies weren't bunching up enough to make grenades and remote mines effective.

The EMP only resets to a certain point, so if it's damaged to 99-51 it should return to 100 when the next wave starts. If the enemies damage it down below 50 then it will only reset to 50. There's another recharge marker at 25 but unless you're on the final wave saving that EMP will be tough.

If you aren't trying for the last man standing achievement let yourself be killed and you'll start on the same wave you died on with an EMP at 100 and full equipment
