This walkthrough will focus on a silent approach and escaping undetected. To do this it helps a lot to come back to this mission once you get the ability to extract children with a new Fulton upgrade. This will be available after mission 26.
Taking out the first target (01:10)
Start the mission at night and make your way to your first target. He will be unprotected, waiting in a house in the north area of the village. Take him out, extract him and move on to the “secret” entrance of the target base.
Extracting the children (08:12)
This ensures that you reach the children with next to no enemy threats. Carry the injured kid outside and the rest will follow. Tranquilize all of the to extract them with the Fulton Children Device.
Now move into the north to make your grand cargo container escape. Take your time here, and take out all enemies in your way. There’s also a helicopter flying around in this are, so avoid running at any time.
Once you reach the containers, get on top of one and hold the extraction button (Xbox: X / PS: Square). It’s important that you hold the button until you’re in the air and finished with the mission, or you will fall off.
