Better Dying Through Chemistry optional

When you reach the entrance, there's a gunner behind sandbags by himself. If you take him out quickly and disguise yourself you can actually play this level pretty quietly. There are two basic kinds of targets, the smaller, thinner tanks, and the bigger, darker tanks. The big tanks you can blow with dynamite and as long as your out of the zone of suspicion in time, you'll be fine. The same is true of the smaller ones, too, but you'll be taking those out with guns, and without the delay of the...

Whisper or a Roar

When you get to the convoy, Sean points out that there are two very different ways to complete this mission. You can get a disguise, sneak up close to the convoy, and plant some dynamite, which would be the conventional route. We prefer the other approach, because it's reliable, requires less finesse, and makes for an easy escape. Climb the wall and sneak up on the guard by the turret (not hard at all). Now you can easily shoot down the three trucks, and then...

Fahrenheit Four Fifty optional

Now that Margot is on your side, you can do some side missions for her. This is a nice easy one. Travel to the Arc de Triomphe and get a disguise from one of the guards patrolling on the outside. Now slip in behind the tank and place some dynamite on the back Run off to the right and out of the way and you'll completely avoid detection. Another fairly easy assignment from Margot. Head to the Grand Palais. On the outside you should be able to the lift from a good distance. Take it up to the...

Garages and Cars

After your first mission for Santos, you'll have access to garages throughout the city. These can be used to summon any vehicle you've collected throughout the course of the game. To collect a vehicle, simply drive it to any garage, and it will be added permanently to your collection. This is handy for driving missions, or those where you'll need a good getaway vehicle. If you're ambitious, however, the garage can even store things like tanks, which can make for an interesting approach in...

Checkpoints

Throughout the city, there are checkpoints to restrict travel for those without the appropriate papers. This is The Saboteur's way of opening up areas of the city gradually. Checkpoints that appear as yellow are safe, so long as you have no heat on you and you stop and wait for them to open the gate. Red checkpoints are inaccessible. This isn't as restrictive as it is in Grand Theft Auto. You are perfectly free to smash through red checkpoints and explore the city at any time, but you will have...

Guardian Angel optional

Head to the cathedral. Getting to the vantage point on the second level isn't super obvious. On the north side of the building you can see some scaffolding under a red light. Use this to get up one story, and then a little further west on the same face you can find another. As you get into position, there are two Nazis. Ideally you want to kill them both quickly, but there's an alarm switch up here so if you screw up, you can just kill them and shut the alarm off. If you...

The Wrath of God optional

Father Denis is waiting in the back of the church in the north. He needs a wheelman. Go outside and find the best car you can (a Dugati will do nicely). The drive to the embassy is uneventful. Pull over and let Dennis out. Take him to the courtyard, and then, while he's inside, get the car in position and ready to book. If you have a speedy car you can lose the heat pretty quickly. Try to escape south and save yourself some time when you drop Denis off in Place de la Bastille. Time to finish...

The Bavarian Candidate optional

Now that we're done with Duval for now, let's switch over to Dr. Kwong. This mission is pretty simple. Grab a car (preferably an appropriate getaway vehicle) and pick up the Nazi. Take him to his destination. When everything goes wrong, you'll have to do the assassination yourself. You could just blast your way through. Alternately, with a good car you could do a quick drive around the block, lose the heat, and then pull off the kill quietly, which we prefer.

Dark Reign

After dropping everyone off, this Bryman mission becomes available. Head to the point and climb up. Stealth-kill the first guard. Grab his sniper rifle, too Don't bother disguising yourself, you're going to end up fighting most likely. When you flip the first switch, the timer starts. Slide down the wire to the next destination. From here, it's easier just to start shooting. The wires neatly connect the different radio points. After the fourth one, you'll want to climb the sniping platform and...

Symphony of Destruction optional

Slip through the small opening in the wall, and you'll see a tank just left unattended. Now it's time to go out big. Slip through the small opening in the wall, and you'll see a tank just left unattended. You can't really get far before the alarm sounds, but screw it, you have a tank. Blast your way through anything in your way and work your way to the other side. Take out vehicles, the bunker, anything. The last bit has a very narrow entrance, and it's difficult...

Slaughterhouse

Once you're done chatting, go outside. Jack a car and take Luc to the target point. Go upstairs and talk to Luc. Once you're done chatting, go outside. Jack a car and take Luc to the target point. Luc explains to Sean about disguises. Cross over the bridge, get behind the guard (as long as you aren't carrying a gun or in sneak mode, he won't think twice about you) and do a stealth kill. Take the uniform. Act casual as you infiltrate the base. When guards are around,...

Grand Theft Limo

The Saboteur Mod

The second Santos mission will give you access to garages. A bit east of the Belle, you can see the limo, parked in a heavily guarded courtyard. Go to the east of the building, out of the line of sight of the guards and climb the building. From the roof, make your way over to the limo. When you drop down, it'll be on immediately, so hop right in the car, bust through the gate, and then lose the Nazis at the first opportunity. Afterwards you can rendezvous with Santos at his garage by the...

Rolling Thunder

Talk to Bishop, and then find Skylar near the Arc de Triomphe. This is a big mission. First, Skylar goes with you to sabotage a bridge. You need to find the four points (highlighted with red lights) to plant sabotage. You're not using dynamite this time. You'll see little ghosts of the sabotage at the exact points to plant the charges. You'll have to climb to reach some of them. Doing this part disguised is kind of pointless, as there aren't that many enemies, and it's easier just to shoot your...

Legio Patria Nostra optional

This is a pretty epic demolition mission, but solving it with grace seems near impossible. You can disguise yourself and slip into the Palais, but once you destroy a target, the jig is pretty much up. Luckily, you can scrub your way through this mission, since the targets stay demolished even if you die and restart the mission. You don't have to dynamite targets. You can just shoot down many of them, like the smaller zeppelins and the fuel tanks. If you climb the ladder...

Set Up Us the Bomb optional

This is another Wilcox demo mission, and it's pretty fun. Stealth is irrelevant here. You can raze the whole place without dying and with guns blazing. Your targets are those big canisters with the light blue electric glow. You can pop them from a distance with a machine gun. You'll also notice many of them are on the roof, some of them a bit less obvious, so be sure to check your minimap as you go. Destroy the points visible from the front and then swing around the side. When you get to either...
