Hint: St. Petersburg Stakeout
When you start, do not get your equipment yet. If you do this civilians that always wander the subway will complain to the guard. Instead, go to the other locker area with the guard in it and shoot him. Drag him behind the shelf-locker part. Take his clothes, but do not take his AK-47. There should be another guard that will coming to check in. Kill him if desired. Then, get your equipment and return to the lockers again. Go to the doorn unlock the door to the sewers. An easy way to do this is to look at your map for moment and 47 should have it opened. Then on your map, find the path that you go across to the right of your screen and keep going until you see a ladder. Climb it. If you found the correct path, to your left will be an opening, and straight ahead is an alley. Go to the end of an alley and kill the person guarding the ledge at the end. Then, check your map. Near the Pushkin Buildingre is a building with a point of interest symbol. Run towards it, but not near the guards. Go to about the thirrd floor. Kill the guard inside patrolling.

Hint: St. Petersburg Stakeout Easy Silent Assassin rank
Do not directly get the sniper rifle from your locker when you begin the mission. If you do, it will alert a civilian and they will warn a guard. First, get a guard uniform. to get the bonus, you cannot kill the guard; you will need the Anesthetic. Go up the wide stairs forward and to the left of the insertion point. Follow the hallway, go up the escalator, and take the first left. There is a guard that patrols here. There are also some lockers that he steps behind. Wait until he goes behind the lockersn pull your Anesthetic. Wait in sneak mode around the opposite side of the lockers, right near the corner. Save the game at this point, as it is fairly difficult to time the Anesthetic correctly, and it will prevent you from having to waste time running to the same spot. Make sure when you anesthetize him that you give him the full five bottles. Drag him behind the lockers, take his clothes, and take his gun. Run back down the escalators and ditch the gun as you are running. You do not need the AK -- you just do not want him to have it when he wakes up. Get your sniper rifle from the locker, and the civilians will not care that you are carrying a gun because you have a soldier's uniform. Run back to the room where you knocked the guard out and go through the door on your right. Pick the lock in the next room and follow the left wall until you reach a ladder. Climb up into the street and go to the building across from the meeting room. Run when you can, but do not make the guards too suspicious. Go right in the front door of the building -- it saves time and the guards are on patrol instead of just standing there. Go up, and make the sniper hit. Save the gamen start heading back the way that you came from. By now anesthetized soldier has probably awakened. When you are exiting the sewers, check through the keyhole of the second door. Watch for the guard (in his underwear) to go back behind the lockers. Open the door in sneak moden run onto the subway. the trick for the bonus, as always, is to have no aggression. If you kill anyone besides your target, you may still get the Silent Assassin rating, but you will not get the bonus. Also, you may find it easier to get the Silent Assassin rating on the next level if you keep that sniper rifle with you.

Move behind him, knock him out with the Anesthetic (use the whole bottle). Then, take the elevator down. When the guards find himy will only look around and get back to their positions. This is a safer way to achieve the Silent Assassin rank, as you only fire one bullet (to take out the target).
Hint: More ammunition
If you are near a stack of ammunition but are notified by the game that you cannot pick it up, use the following trick to get almost twice as much normal ammunition. for example, if you have a shotgun with full ammunition and are next to a pile of shotgun ammunition, fire one shot, reloadn pick up the ammunition. You will now have almost double the ammunition.
Hint: Getting the M4 (M16)
On the motorcade level, you need to clear the town quickly and grab the supplied rifle. Shoot your target. This will cause the UN guards to stop and run on foot to your position. Wait until they get through the gatesn dodge their shots and put them in the cross fire from the remaining troops outside. Since you cannot hurt them, do not shoot. They will soon shoot their own men. Then, just run up and grab an M4. This may not be easy, but it does work.

After you complete the level on which you found the gun gun will now be available at your house. You will have ammunition in the room for you to use if desired. Howeverre are many guns that are too big to carry inside your clothes and therefore must be held in the open. You will not be able to pick up a gun of the same size or greater without dropping the one you are holding. You will find other guns on the same level that you cannot pick up because you are already holding one, and the gun you want is simply too big to conceal. in this case, you will have to decide which gun you want more then finish the level with it. You can always replay that level to get the other gun that was left behind.
When at your home area with the shed of guns, you may shoot down the birds either on the ground or while they fly in the air. Each bird that is shot will fall to its corresponding area and remain there until you leave the level. You can also shoot the pigs in their pen.
Hint: Pick locks quicker
Pick a lock, look at your map, and exit. the lock will be picked.
Hint: Fast kills

Then still holding the pizza, walk straight towards him and make sure he looks back at you. He should start getting upn fall back into his chair in a continuous loop. Go directly behind him, and when he falls into the chair and is facing away, pull out your .22mm and shoot him in the back of the head. If done correctly, he will suddenly appear face down on his desk, dead, but the chair will continue the glitch movement and keep sliding out then appearing under the desk.
Glitch: Basement Killing: Invisible bench:
