Beause through the game you will get mostly get the AK47/assault rifle.The AK47/assault rifle and RPG (train with this weapons as it doens't goes straight) is a good combo for the start of the game.

But later when you know how to resource ammo, then you can change the AK47/assault riffle to M16/carbine. Also later in the game you will have new weapons to play with.And then you can change your RPG to a anti-TANK rocket launcher (be aware that there is also a anti-AIR missle launcher).

When you get to the stage of the game when you have to capture/kill the ace of spades save the game before you accept the contract becase if you save it once you complete the game it will make you capture the face cards and aces again when you play the playground of destruction mode.

Hope this helps!

Flying Magnets

When in a helicopter you can pick up most metal object that aren't too heavy to carry by pressing down on the directional button and holding it down until it doesn't go any further then dragging the magnet along the vehicle, crate, etc. To release an object or pull the magnet up just hold the up directional button.

Scatter Bomb

If you are by an area infested with North Koreans, and they are giving you a hard time, just use this hint. Set 1 to 8 C4's on a cliff near the infested area. Make sure that the C4's aren't right on top of eachother or they will stick. Set them next to each other.

Look at the infested area and stand behind the C4's, aim and kick. Now you'll have to be quick. Get your remote out fast. And when the C4's land on the ground, blow them up! You'll have to be quick because if the North Koreans see the C4's, they are going to split! Hope this helps.

Sk UH-60

Hints And Tips

* When you see a helicopter starting to take off, try to snipe the pilot. If done early enough or at a lower altitude the Helicopter will land with minimum damage. Now you have a free chopper to rain havoc down on your enemies. * When driving into a heavily armed area, try planting a C4 charge on top of a Jeep. Equip the detonator then enter the Jeep. Now drive full speed in to the enemy base. Aim for some vehicles or troops then jump out while moving. Just before the Jeep impacts, detonate the C4 charge and enjoy the destruction. * Use the free air strikes, supply drops, and vehicles provided in some of the missions. They don't cost anything and will make your job that much easier. * Practice sniping drivers and pilots. It takes skill but worth the practice in later missions. * If you'r..

First, grab an Allies Transport Helicopter, you can find one on the back roads right on the river near the allies base in the first providence you are at. Fly the chopper to the place where you found the two of clubs.

You will see that that the allies have converted it into a helicopter landing station, in between the two landing pads are two yellow fuel tanks, use the winch in your helicopter to pick up one of the tanks, carry it to the location of your choice, but don't go too fast or the tank will hit you and explode, killing you.

When you get to where you want to be drop the tank on whatever is bugging you (men and light cars only) the tank will explode and they will die or get baddly injured. (I didnt try this yet but also you can also use the small yellow barr..
