Chapter 5: The Edge

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 206
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 206

You'll come up on a pretty view of Dubai. There's some strange things about it if you look around.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 207
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 207

When you're done checking out the view, though, head to the right.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 208
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 208

At the end of path you'll come to a zip line you'll use to zip down to the next building across the way.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 209
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 209

At the bottom you may need to wait a couple seconds for your squad to catch up with you. When you're ready head down the stairs to the left of the zip line.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 210
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 210

You'll come up on a door at the bottom of the staircase. Take some M4 ammo if you need it and then take cover behind the wall.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 211
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 211

You're still unnoticed as you reach the wall here. There are two guys below standing guard. Or they're just hanging out- really it's hard to say.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 212
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 212

There are several moments in this game that are designed to make you feel bad- or at least think about what you are doing. This, for me, is one of those moments.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 213
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 213

They seem to be just two dudes hanging out and shooting the breeze. Order your squad to take these guys out. While I write this I wonder how that makes you feel that you just did that.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 214
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 214

If it makes you feel better they would have opened fire on you immediately if they saw you. Keeping heading down the stairs.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 215
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 215

As you head down the stairs you'll hear more enemies in the room ahead giving a situation report. Take cover by the door quickly.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 216
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 216

You can get the drop on them but whether they see you first or you shoot someone in the room first combat is going to begin again here.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 217
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 217

Just from my military experience- if I had to guess- this place was probably an MWR center (Morale, Welfare, and Recreation). A place where they would normally relax. Anyway, move in to cover behind the bar first.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 218
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 218

Then head to the left to take cover behind the wall.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 219
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 219

More enemies will come up the stairs on the left so keep an eye out and shoot them before they shoot you.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 220
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 220

When it's clear you can head out and get some ammo. Then head towards the stairs.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 221
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 221

You probably already heard them, but be aware of the enemies on the floor below. They are down the stairs as well as on the far side of the floor.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 222
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 222

I generally inch down in these situations to have fewer chances of being shot and more chances of taking out a few at a time.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 223
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 223

When you reach the bottom of the stairs immediately head to the left. There's some ammo behind that wall with the TV screen on it there if you need some.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 224
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 224

After picking up ammo head to cover behind the chairs. Some more enemies will come up in front of this area as well as from a door on the left hand side of this area.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 225
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 225

You can see the door on the left better here. If they need it (they usually don't here) remember you can order Lugo and Adams to take out specific targets for increased efficiency.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 226
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 226

After taking out these guys you can search the area for more ammo. Your goal is to use the rappel ropes ahead.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 227
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 227

When you get to the bottom of the rappel Lugo will note for you that there are more enemies in the area ahead.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 228
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 228

Turn around from here and head towards Lugo and Adams. They'll tell you about a sniper rifle on the ground here.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 229
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 229

Usually I am not a fan of sniper rifles but it is useful for this part as there is a lot of snipers ahead. You can switch it out with whichever you want as you can come back for your other weapon in a minute.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 230
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 230

After you make your decision head to the wall and take cover ahead.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 231
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 231

Because I am not the steady mouse shot I usually have Lugo take the opening shot. This means you can have him take out one of the snipers before they even see you which can be helpful.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 232
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 232

I usually take the other guy out right as he does it.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 233
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 233

The thing with ordering Lugo is that it does take him a few seconds to take the shot so if you're even moderately quick at lining up targets (like me) you can probably take out two or three before he even shoots the one you tell him to.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 234
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 234

That being said it's still useful in its own way. Just can't have him take everyone out unless you want to sit here forever.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 235
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 235

When you're done taking out the snipers you can go back for your other weapon (if sniper isn't your preference).

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 236
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 236

Then jump down onto the red girder and cross over onto the other building.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 237
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 237

I recommend you move with a purpose here as a Helo comes and drops off more enemies so things get hot real fast.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 238
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 238

As should be the norm by now take cover behind the closest box and take some guys out. I like starting off with a grenade if there is a lot of guys as this clears things up a little bit.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 239
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 239

Watch out for the guy on the roof on the left side as well.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 240
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 240

When you have an opening head over to the left towards the wall ahead of the boxes, but on the left side.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 241
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 241

Clear out any ground enemies and some more guys on the area below this position as well.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 242
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 242

You can use Lugo to take out any enemies that are far away if you have trouble as well.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 243
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 243

When it's clear enough slip out to the left and head towards the building.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 244
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 244

Be careful when heading inside as there may still be more enemies. You want to head up the stairs onto the upper area of the roof.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 245
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 245

Take out any enemies here, grab some ammo if you need it, and head to the left taking cover behind the wall.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 246
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 246

From here you have a better view of the battlefield and can better take out enemies.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 247
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 247

Have at it and remember to utilize your squad if/when you need to.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 248
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 248

Once the slaughter is over head back downstairs.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 249
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 249

You'll have to run all the way back to the beginning of this rooftop and then take a left and head down the stairs.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 250
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 250

And then head up the stairway on the far right side. Now is a good time to search for ammo if you need any.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 251
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 251

When you're ready to continue head through the orangish/red door and to the left.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 252
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 252

Then jump down onto the next floor through the hole in the wall.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 253
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 253

From here head to the right and then left and go up the stairs.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 254
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 254

Go through the door on the right at the top of the stairs.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 255
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 255

Jump down the ledge and vault over the railing ahead.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 256
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 256

It's kind of eerie being in the open like this, isn't it?

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 257
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 257

Another ambush and this time they shot out the roof while you were on it.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 258
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 258

Take out the two enemies ahead of you behind the model city. Then drop down.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 259
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 259

This will probably injure you a lot so take a second to reload and wait for it to do that automatic healing thing before continuing to fight.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 260
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 260

Watch out for the crazy guys with bandanas that run at you, now. They're fast and they kill you quickly if they get to you. Add them to #1 on your priority list of kills.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 261
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 261

After you're done taking out the crazy knife guy you'll notice there is a lot more enemies ahead.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 262
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 262

Continue taking out enemies and when you have an opening move closer to the door taking cover behind the model table.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 263
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 263

Clear out the doorway from here and then slip out and take cover behind the door.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 264
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 264

Take a moment here to reload and catch your breath.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 265
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 265

Then take cover behind the chair not far from the front of the door way.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 266
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 266

Be ready, though, because there is another crazy knife guy that comes running at you. You should have enough time to realize it here and take him out fairly quickly if you're paying attention.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 267
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 267

Shortly after this some more enemies will drop down into the room from the roof so take them out.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 268
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 268

Then when it's clear enough head to the left and take cover behind that small greenish/blue box on the left.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 269
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 269

Make sure to watch out for more enemies here- there may be at least 3 or so.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 270
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 270

Remember to also watch your right as there are still enemies over there.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 271
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 271

I also had Lugo take a guy on the left out just because he could be problem for me otherwise.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 272
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 272

When it's clear enough (or in my case I was forced out) head to the wall on the left.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 273
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 273

A big reason for this is more enemies will rappel into the room on the position you were just in and they will be easier to handle from here.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 274
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 274

Head out the window when the coast is clear.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 275
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 275

Don't forget to look for ammo. Then head to the zip line and use it to cross over into another building.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 276
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 276

When you get to the bottom of the zip line head to the left and into the building across the makeshift bridge.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 277
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 277

Head through the door on the right where it says "Liars Lair" on the wall .

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 278
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 278

And left to the door. When you're ready go ahead and open it.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 279
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 279

Don't worry- there is still no enemies around. Head left from the door here.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 280
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 280

You'll go through a fairly linear corridor around here. When you get to a doorway head to the right.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 281
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 281

The door at the end of the hallway is where you're going. When you're ready go ahead and open it.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 282
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 282

After the harrowing cut scene Walker wakes up at the bottom of some kind of pit.
