Chapter 12: Rooftops

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 619
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 619

After the cutscene you load in on a open blue skyway ahead. Go ahead and go that way.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 620
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 620

Keep moving forward towards the skyline ahead.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 621
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 621

You'll come to a portion of the roof that is broken off. Drop down to the floor below.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 622
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 622

There is another beautiful cityscape view here.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 623
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 623

When you're done enjoying the view head to the right.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 624
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 624

You want to go all the way down and to the right down the stairs.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 625
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 625

Head around the stairs to the left side towards the broken part of the railing.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 626
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 626

Drop down through the railing to the floor below and continue forward until you get to another drop.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 627
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 627

Drop down again another floor and turn around.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 628
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 628

There is a door behind you. You might want to take cover.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 629
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 629

If it's clear head inside and take cover to the right side. You will see the snipers perched in the room ahead. You can give a kill order to your squad and move in with them and you will be able to take out all three at once.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 630
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 630

After you've cleared the room, and gotten any ammo you need, head to the right through the door.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 631
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 631

Around the corner on the left is several more enemies to kill.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 632
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 632

When it's clear run to the nook on the right side of the corridor and take cover behind the wall closer to the room ahead.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 633
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 633

As you clear ahead of you you can move further into the room taking cover closer which will give you a better aim on your enemies.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 634
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 634

Head to the wall ahead of the chairs and take cover but look to the left side to take out any enemy hiding in the office over there.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 635
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 635

Then round the corner on your right and through the office.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 636
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 636

Take cover in the second office and you should be able to take out a few enemies in the foyer ahead and to the left.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 637
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 637

When it's clear move into the next office ahead of the one you're in and you can get a better vantage on the room.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 638
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 638

Keep an eye on the roof as well for any snipers.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 639
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 639

When it's clear head further into the room and take cover behind a couch to take out any remaining enemies.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 640
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 640

Then head forward and through the door at the other side, but take cover behind the box as there are snipers.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 641
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 641

You can order Lugo to take them out or work together but take out two or three enemies on the roof across the way.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 642
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 642

Then head down the walkway to the zip line.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 643
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 643

Take the zip line down, through the next building, all the way to the bottom. Walker will land on an enemy ahead.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 644
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 644

Strange things continue to happen. Walker is seeing the enemy as Adams. It's not Adams though, it's part of Walkers PTSD. If you don't kill him he will kill you so shoot him.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 645
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 645

See, Adams is fine and wondering whats wrong with you.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 646
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 646

Anyway, head up the stairs ahead, and to the right.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 647
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 647

Go through the door at the top and up more stairs.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 648
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 648

Then go to the right towards a bathtub.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 649
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 649

Head around and behind the bathtub and jump out the window onto the ledge just outside.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 650
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 650

Then head to the left down the catwalk.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 651
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 651

At the end go up a ramp, but duck down as there are enemies who haven't seen you yet on the opposite roof.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 652
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 652

Head in a little ways and take cover by a wall that suits you.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 653
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 653

There is several weapons and ammo here if you need. I do recommend using a sniper rifle for this part as the distance is substantial and it's easier to take aim with a sniper rifle here.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 654
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 654

Take out any enemies below; remember you can order Lugo to do so as well.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 655
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 655

When it's clear you can switch back to your weapon if you dropped one you prefer then go over to the zip line at the far left side.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 656
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 656

Take the zip line down to the patio on the other building.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 657
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 657

This scene is kind of creepy. It's weird that they have so many mannequins here. Or maybe they don't? It's hard to say if they are real or not.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 658
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 658

Anyway, head forward through the door.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 659
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 659

Then head around and into the door on the far side of the courtyard.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 660
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 660

Take the stairs inside up and to the left.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 661
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 661

Keep heading up behind Lugo and Adams. There are three flights of stairs or so.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 662
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 662

At the top you get to some kind of condo. Head around to the left.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 663
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 663

Go around the bar in the center and to the left.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 664
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 664

Go around and up into the staircase. This will trigger the next cutscene.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 665
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 665

You will meet the radioman here who shows Lugo how to use his radio system.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 666
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 666

Lugo then kills him. To be fair, he is rather annoying.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 667
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 667

After the cutscene ends go back down the stairs.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 668
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 668

If you recall enemies dropped in by helicopter so you want to get back around outside to trake their chopper.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 669
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 669

Take out any enemies inside the condo and head back around.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 670
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 670

Take cover to peek around corners just in case and head back to the staircase.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 671
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 671

Go back down all the stairs.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 672
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 672

At the bottom take cover behind a box as some more enemies will burn through the door you came in originally. When they open it shoot away. I believe there are four enemies at the doorway.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 673
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 673

When it's clear move forward and take cover by the door and clear out any more enemies ahead.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 674
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 674

When you're able to, move forward and take cover behind the bar. At this point most of the enemies should be coming from the staircase on the left.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 675
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 675

As it's clear head to the stairs to go up, but be careful.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 676
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 676

There are usually more enemies that show up as you get to the top.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 677
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 677

Round the corner to the right from there and take cover to take out enemies in the area ahead.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 678
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 678

When that is clear move ahead a little to the right to shoot enemies around on the right corner.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 679
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 679

Then take cover and look around to the left to take out any remaining enemies ahead of you.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 680
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 680

Be careful, though, as there is a knife guy that will run at you. Take him down.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 681
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 681

Move forward, taking out any enemies in the way, continuing to stay in cover.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 682
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 682

Move ahead further in to the green boxes to make sure its clear. Slip out when you can and head to the stairs.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 683
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 683

Head up the stairs to get in the chopper. Bare in mind that Lugo stayed behind to cover you guys while you got to the chopper so now you have to cover him as he heads back.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 684
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 684

Take out any enemies that are in Lugo's way.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 685
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 685

There are a lot of enemies on the left side as well as up on the top left.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 686
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 686

You can explode the big tanks here as well for good crowd control.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 687
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 687

Lugo should eventually get to the stairs and get in the chopper. Note: if he stops at some point and doesn't move and no more enemies spawn the game has bugged out and you will have to reload. The check point is at the beginning of this turret cover sequence so it's not too bad if that does happen (I've only had this happen once).

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 688
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 688

After the cutscene Adams will take off so kill any enemies below you.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 689
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 689

The chopper will fly around the radio tower here. This part seems more for catharsis than anything but go ahead and shoot everything.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 690
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 690

Watch for enemies as you move around to the pool area as well.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 691
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 691

Once you swoop around to the back of the radio tower you should be able to start shooting it up. Just shoot out all the glass you can see. It really is kind of fun in it's own way, and feels good.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 692
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 692

You'll swoop around to another emplacement of enemies so watch out for that and take out anyone shooting at you.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 693
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 693

Shoot out more windows as you swoop around and you should see more enemies now on the radio tower so shoot down those guys as well.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 694
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 694

Clear out any remaining windows as you make your final pass.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 695
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 695

Once all the windows are down you shoot the sattelite dish to finish the tower up. This should begin the tower collapsing.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 696
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 696

You'll get another cutscene as the radio tower falls.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 697
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 697

Then you'll be in a familiar setting.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 698
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 698

Walker will mention that you have done this before; at the beginning of the game. Very strange. The only difference on this one is occasionally the choppers will now shoot missiles at you. If you see a red target just shoot it.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 699
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 699

Other than that this is basically the same exact thing as the beginning so shoot down all the choppers.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 700
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 700

Eventually one of the choppers you shoot down will crash into the chopper you are in and a cutscene will play.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 701
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 701

Walker wakes up in some kind of hellscape. Really it's more of a nightmare he's having.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 702
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 702

There are bodies to the left and right and dead men haunt Walker as you move forward.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 703
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 703

At the end of the path Walker will collapse.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 704
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 704

A cutscene plays as you see the landscape burn.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 705
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 705

Then Walker will awaken back in Dubai. Wait... Where are Lugo and Adams?
