Hello, all masterplayers!
I am an not-so-good gameplayer who neeeds help badly. I have been playing FC for a while now (easiest level...) and I am close to finish. I am after Doyle and I have entered the final area. Since I am a lousy gamer (and dead-on-arrival in multi) I get smacked to pieces every time I try. I am more of the sniper type of player wich made me enjoy the game so far. But here I get stuck!
I have noticed here that there are some guys that donâÂ´t like cheaters. But, for a bad player there is no choise!!! Is there anybody that either can give a good description on how to get around in this... pit of Doom or some working cheats? I have seen some suggestions on cheats but none have I got working.
I have a Win XP Home Ed, AMD 64 Bit processor and Geforce FX 5900 Ultra. so the machine has no problem with the game (except in one odd place in the middle of an island where it got very chompy...). But does the cheats not work with XP or so?? Thankful for some replies!!

Have you tried the post on 'single player tips, tactics and spoilers' in the post above yours on here? That has some good advice on defeating levels without cheats. And you can still use sniping tactics in this level too, if you hide to the right side between the two large doors there is a little nook from where you can take out the big guys and then crawl to the edge to take out the other guys in the pit area.

But how to take out the first biggie that is quite close yet hidden by a big rock. If I stand to the right he will be even more off line for me. And wich weapon? These guys takes a serious amount of damage before falling!! Besides... isnâÂ´t there a machinegun-guy to the left with very good view of the right side of the doors? I have been looking at the thread mentioned but not But not the whole lot. But I shall.

Well what you do with the guy to the right side is, from the nook where you are prone, chuck some hand grenades at the wall opposite you but near the outer corner so they bounce on to him and blow him up. And the prefered gun for me was the GPMG style weapon (the one that can carry 100 rounds a time) and make sure you aim for their heads with it. Finishes them off in no time if you aim there.

Ach...! I forgot the headshots! Me a sniperplayer... Thanks for the help. I have finished this exellent game now. with 0 in life and 0 in armour (couldnâÂ´t see any colour on the meters!) But I survived. Thanks again. ItâÂ´s a lovely game!

m, next time through, you might consider just avoiding the two fatboys that come at you from the garage on the far side of the Volcano. Saves ammo and health. Plus, their presence below seems to prematurely trigger the merc rocket launchers as you approach from the big dish. Most of them simply end up dead by shoothing themselves. It is really funny to watch.

Hide inside the outer garage-type door and chuck rocks or grenades outside until the big boys march up to the door, where they will stand, as you stay tucked in the corner on the right, waiting for you to sidle just a little left and shoot them repeatedly in the forearm. Takes maybe 20 shots each with an assault rifle. Then put on your cryvision and binoculars and sneak out just enough to identify the jumpers outside; don't leave cover too long for a look or they'll spook and start leaping around. (Emerge just enough from cover 'til you see one, and deal with him before trying to locate the next). Duck behind the pile of dead big boys and pop your head up for looks til you've located and shot them all, I believe there are four. Across the crater, I ran to the left of the other doors and positioned myself lying down by the rocks, then sniped the two big boys as they came at me.
p.s. to make progress if you're running out of patience (or hope) at hard points, turn on AI autobalance.
