Chapter 4: The Refugees

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 142
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 142

You'll load in to a dark room. Head to the right.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 143
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 143

When you're done looking around your destination is down the stairs at the end of the hall.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 144
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 144

At the bottom of the stairs you will want to drop down into the hole with light coming out of it.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 145
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 145

From down here you want to head to the right.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 146
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 146

Then head to the left.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 147
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 147

There was a massacre of American soldiers here, but it is still unclear why or what is happening here.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 148
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 148

When you're ready head to the right and take cover at the door.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 149
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 149

Head in and take cover at the table ahead.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 150
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 150

After the cut scene you will have a conversation with the soldier here.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 151
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 151

You have two options. You can shoot the soldier or you can let the scene play out and he will go ahead of you.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 152
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 152

This has one of two outcomes. If you kill him you will remain silent for a little while longer and the soldiers ahead will not know you are coming for a few more minutes.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 153
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 153

If you let him live he will go ahead of you and warn the others that you are coming so you get attacked shortly after you head down below.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 154
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 154

The choice is yours. These choices do not affect your ending, only the immediate encounter. It will also cause either Lugo or Adams (or both) to question you. There are consequences to all your choices in the game, so make the one you want to live with and move forward.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 155
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 155

In my playthrough for this walkthrough I let him live. When you're ready head down using the zip line.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 156
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 156

There are some strange things going on here. If you let the soldier live, though, you wont have much time to take in the scenery. There is a conversation that will play out between Lugo and Adams regardless, but make sure you take cover behind a desk while they talk.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 157
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 157

Not long after Lugo and Adams are done talking some enemies (along with the soldier you let live- if you did) will storm in shooting.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 158
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 158

They also shoot at you through a hole on the right side of the room (or left if you are behind the desk near the only exit to the room) so be careful as Adams or Lugo may need to be healed.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 159
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 159

This is the hole on the side of the room- the one to the left of the pictures on the wall. There will be one or two guys here depending on if one leaves to come in from the other side.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 160
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 160

Unfortunately there are no right answers so do what you have to. When you are done here head out and to the right.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 161
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 161

Adams will open the door for you to proceed.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 162
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 162

After heading in through the doorway you want to immediately take cover. You can hide for a little bit but eventually the American soldiers here will open fire on you. It may not seem right, but it's do or die. Your other option is to not play the game at all.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 163
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 163

If you decide to continue forward vault over the wall and take cover to the right (as there will be guys ahead of you as well as to the right of you).

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 164
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 164

Lugo and Adams will attempt to reason with the enemy but they will ultimately have to die if you want to continue on with the story. Do what you have to do.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 165
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 165

There's a fair amount of enemies here so I found it best to take out anyone on the left side of the room and then focus on taking out the enemies ahead while heading to the far side of the room.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 166
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 166

Whichever way you do it you will eventually be going to the room with a big banner at the entrance.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 167
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 167

Head inside and to the left which then heads to the right.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 168
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 168

At the hall with all the fliers on it head forward and then to the left.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 169
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 169

After a brief conversation about how they could possibly salvage this operation Adams will open the next door.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 170
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 170

This doesn't bode well either.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 171
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 171

After the cutscene head to the left and go down the stairs ahead.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 172
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 172

When you get to the stairs a soldier will head up and it will begin another large scale battle.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 173
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 173

After getting down the first flight of stairs head directly to the right and head towards the end where there's a small crevice with a civilian hiding.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 174
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 174

You can take cover from here and shoot enemies below. You can also get a good vantage point outside of here a little to the left of that position behind a pillar.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 175
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 175

Once you've taken care of the enemies below (that you can see) head back to the stairs and continue down.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 176
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 176

While you're heading down a lot of soldiers will come out ahead. If you are quick you can shoot most of them before they get to cover.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 177
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 177

When you have an opening, head all the way down, and veer right, to take cover behind the refridgerator.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 178
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 178

As you have openings you can slowly move forward a little. Make sure to be aware that there is holes in the walls and guys down on the floor below as well so don't take cover in a bad position.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 179
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 179

You may have the option to have Adams throw a stun grenade down on the floor below. Either use that or your own stun grenade to do this to create an opening if needed and head forward a little more.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 180
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 180

There are enemies on the balcony on the right side which are taking pot shots at you. Make sure you kill them when you head to the right.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 181
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 181

There are also 3 or 4 enemies on the floor directly below shooting at you that you can take out from here when that's done.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 182
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 182

Don't forget about the enemies on the walkway below to the far left.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 183
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 183

When it's clear head all the way to the right and go down the stairs. Be careful, there may still be more enemies to kill down here and you don't want them killing you on the stairs.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 184
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 184

Watch out for the guys that may be on the walk way then drop down and take cover at the closest wall ahead.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 185
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 185

When it's clear head to the far left, taking cover when needed. There is a stack of boxes at the end you can take cover behind.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 186
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 186

Take out any remaining enemies and then vault over the boxes continuing to head forward.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 187
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 187

There are a lot more enemies below you so I recommend hugging the left wall.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 188
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 188

When you get over here again the walls are busted so you have no cover from enemies below over in this direction. If you creep up slowly you can take them out quickly.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 189
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 189

If you stay left you should be ok, but your AI squad mates may not be so smart so be careful. You may have to run back to revive them on occasion if they stay in a bad spot (and sometimes they do).

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 190
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 190

When you're ready head to the left and you should come on the staircase leading further down. Be careful, though, as there may still be enemies down there.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 191
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 191

Jump down and take cover directly to the right as there may be several enemies still here to take out.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 192
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 192

When you have some breathing room vault over the wall and take cover behind the box directly in front of you.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 193
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 193

As you head forward you will come to a place where there is an escalator. Do not take the escalator. Instead go to the right.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 194
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 194

There is a pathway through the huts on the right that leads around to where there is a mounted turret hiding.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 195
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 195

Head through here and if you go the whole way down you'll see a opening where you can take out the enemies hiding in here.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 196
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 196

After that keep heading to the left and be careful not to kill any civilians (unless you're a jerk I guess).

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 197
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 197

When the civilian runs away a few guys will open fire on you from the corner. Quickly take cover so you can get a position better suited for your survival.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 198
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 198

If you keep heading forward you'll be behind the mounted gunner. You can easily dispatch the enemies from this position. There are three enemies in here.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 199
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 199

After you take them out immediately get on the mounted gun. A lot more enemies will arrive- especially from the right where the big wall of glass is.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 200
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 200

Your main goal is to shoot out the glass in front of you, but you can't continuously just fire at the glass or the guys coming over the wall on the far side will end up getting on the mounted turret on the far side and then you'll die.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 201
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 201

I recommend shooting the guys as they come and then dump on the window switching back and forth as needed until the window bursts.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 202
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 202

That will clear out the rest of the enemies.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 203
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 203

Head up into the sand dune and watch the cut scene.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 204
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 204

After both cut scenes are finished head forward and drop down into the hole ahead.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 205
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 205

From here head straight.
