This mission has a lot of sections where you can get spotted. While it’s important to keep a good pace and finish the mission quickly it is more important to stay undetected and protect Emmerich from being shot on your way out. If you manage to do this, you can take a little more time and still get the Mission 12 S-Rank.
Start off and leave the base quietly on the left center side. There’s a helicopter, but you only have to worry about him at one section in the beginning.
Outside, jump on your D-Horse and make your way to Emmerich. There are a few outposts and enemies patrolling the way. Take the route from the video and you should have no problem getting there.
❱ Base where Emmerich is kept (05:14)
As you are overlooking the base where Emmerich is kept, take a moment and mark all enemies that you can see from your position. Move forward, under the bridge and take out the next two enemies. One of them being the sniper on the roof.
Mark all enemies from the snipers position and make your way to Emmerich. There are two guards outside that you can take out.
❱ GETTING EMMERICH OUT (10:25)
With Emmerich on your back, you now have to return on the same path you came in. Enemies are now running around and you have to be a little more careful. Don’t worry about time or the helicopter here.
❱ HOW TO ESCAPE THE MECH (13:29)
Once you trigger the cutscene, run behind the first big rock on the right and call a pick-up helicopter to the second landing zone. Get on your D-Horse and ride there quickly. Try to move behind cover while keeping a good pace.
He will send out drones that can spot you, try to avoid them and you should be good to go for the S-Rank.
