Cash from Hostiles
Hostile (and friendly!) units usually drop weapons and cash when you kill them.
The Sliding Crouch
If you use the zoom function while sprinting the Merc will slide into a crouched position.
Melee Bash When Needed
If there is a vehicle, debris or some another annoying object blocking your path you can melee bash it out of the way!
Humans often drop weapons, ammo and money when they die.
Small Fuel Tanks
When destroyed, vehicles often leave behind fuel tanks! You can recover these tanks to quickly obtain small amounts of fuel.
Play it Safe, Sometimes
Use your binoculars to scout out combat encounters and uncover the faction identities of units from a distance.
This is not Forza
If you're driving a fast vehicle and need to quickly slide into a turn, use the handbrake.
I Said Recruit, and Move Out
Recruiting a helicopter pilot will allow you travel quickly to destinations you find (and secure from enemies) out in the world.
Ding! Delivery is Here
If you add a helicopter pilot to your PMC you'll be able to get supplies and vehicles delivered into you in the field.
Suck them Dry!
Having a helicopter pilot at the PMC will allow you extract fuel, munitions and large cash bundles from the world. However, if those items belong to a faction, make sure they don't see you do it!
Put a Cape on
If you enter a faction's vehicle and nobody sees you do it, you will be disguised as a member of that faction! But, don't forget that if you stay around long enough in their presence the faction will discover who you really are!
Get That Crap Fixed
Adding a mechanic to your PMC will allow you to unlock and purchase special vehicles directly from the PMC. Some of these vehicles carry offensive options only available via your mechanic.
Break the Sound Barrier
Recruiting a jet pilot will allow you to drop in many air strikes any time you'd like. Make sure you keep your stockpile full of strikes so you can use air support as much as possible out in the field.
Not All Work...
Air strike munitions can be purchased from faction contacts. More strikes will become available from your contacts as you complete more work for them.
Spare Him, for Cash
High Value Targets (HVTs) are bounties available from every faction. Each HVT is worth double the money if you capture them alive.
You Contracted What?
Every faction has work available for you in the form of contracts and bounties. Contracts become available over time while bounties are a standing list of targets you can complete any time you'd like.
Feed Me Seymore...
Running low on fuel? Purchase additional fuel capacity from your faction contacts. Each one usually has a few that they will sell as you complete more work for them.
Jumpin' Jack Flash
Want to get around faster in the world? Take over outposts for each faction and they will allow you to transit to their newly acquired facility... provided you're on good terms.
Life's Too Short, Love Everyone
Making a faction happy has benefits: their faction units will jump in your vehicle if you honk your horn, contacts will sell you support for cheaper prices and they offer you more contracts.
Do You Still Love Me?
If you get on a faction's bad side, an easy way to get back on their good graces is to kill members of their rival faction. Completing HVT and destruction bounties for the faction will also improve their opinion of you.
Choose the Right Tool
If you're hammering away at a vehicle or structure and it's not taking much damage, you may need something more powerful: RPGs, anti tank rockets, C4, and air strikes allow you to increase the damage you deal! Remember, everything can be destroyed.
Oh!!! 5 points!
Hurting civilians will cost you money! If you're interested in maximizing your profits, make sure you survey the area for innocents before you start laying waste to it.
Satellite In My Eye
As you meet more factions and contacts in the game, Fiona will be able to use their networks to expand her satellite coverage for Venezuela. try to meet as many factions as possible so you can travel to more sections of the map.
Well Hello Columbus
Explore the world! There are tons of bounties, cash bundles, air strike munitions and fuel tanks out there waiting to be collected for use in your operations.
Scrap it up to What?
A mechanic will be able to use the spare parts you find in the world to construct special vehicles! Try to find as many of these parts as you can.
