Chapter 7: The Battle

After both cutscenes are over you will be in some kind of aquarium area. Head forward while Walker talks to Gould.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 337
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 337

Head left and go down the stairs towards some glass giraffe statues.

The design for this particular room is amazing but before you can admire it look up. The helicopter will shoot out the glass roof so stay to the far left in the room until it leaves.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 339
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 339

When it's done you can look around the room. The aquarium floors are a really cool touch.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 340
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 340

In no time flat really Lugo will say he figured out how to get out of here and a window will be spotted for you.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 341
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 341

When you're ready to move forward shoot out the glass.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 342
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 342

Then head out the window.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 343
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 343

You'll come out to another devastated freeway as a helicopter flies over.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 344
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 344

There's also some fighting and a big explosion on the other side.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 345
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 345

Head to the right and you'll come to some rappel lines on the left you can use. Walker wants to make sure Gould is alright so head on down.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 346
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 346

Head forward from here.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 347
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 347

There is some strange visuals in the grafitti around here. Anyway, head to the right at the cross way. The left is just a view of some hanging bodies.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 348
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 348

There are more hanging bodies this way, also, which Adams says is a 33rd soldier. Jump down.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 349
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 349

Quickly take cover behind the orange SUV as there are enemy soldiers here.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 350
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 350

You are silent right now but I've never been able to do this part without activating everybody so shoot away how you like.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 351
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 351

Move towards the blue car if you need a better angle but be careful. There are enemies everywhere.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 352
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 352

When the right side is clear slip out of cover and take cover behind the Armored Troop Carrier (ATC).

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 353
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 353

There are a lot of guys around the corner. Remember to use Lugo and Adams to take out priority targets.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 354
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 354

You'll be there for a little while, but when it's clear you can head towards the orange cargo container to reload. Remember to get ammo as well.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 355
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 355

Then quickly head over and take cover behind the red corvette and tell Lugo to take out the sniper on the signs over the freeway. Be careful, though, as there is a mounted turret inside the bus ahead.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 356
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 356

Then move out of cover towards the sand bags on the right by what looks like an ambulance. If you're lucky you'll have a stun command which you should use to stun the targets around the bus.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 357
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 357

If all goes well these guys will most all be stunned so kill as many as possible.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 358
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 358

If the mounted turret gunner is still alive slip from the sand bags towards the ambulance.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 359
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 359

If you do the gunner will probably get off the mounted gun since you aren't targettable from there and you'll be able to take him out fairly easily now.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 360
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 360

After that head inside the bus. Be careful, though, as more enemies will attack you from the other side.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 361
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 361

After taking out all the enemies here vault over and head forward.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 362
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 362

Be careful as there will be enemies ahead of you as well as a mounted turret to the left just after the blockade. I used a sticky grenade to dust up some sand first and then ordered Adams to attack it. Any explosions in the sand around enemies will cause them to be stunned briefly.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 363
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 363

When you're done scavenging for ammo and grenades head left torwards the area marked as "Evacuation Assembly Point" and also says "City Gate Ahead."

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 364
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 364

It's another pit of death. Head straight towards the stairs.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 365
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 365

This is one of the first times in this game that you won't be sure if it's real, so I am struggling with describing this as I don't know if this is something that is really happening.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 366
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 366

However, you come up on what appears to be an area targetted by white phosphorous that has just hit moments before you got up the stairs.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 367
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 367

Be careful as you head forward as three soldiers are marching in. The indication here is that Gould lead locals in a rebellion against the 33rd and the 33rd unloaded white phosphorous on this position.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 368
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 368

This will also be your first introduction to a heavy. I find, if at all possible, using stickys on them to start usually helps to take them down easier but also order your squad to make it a priority if you're having trouble. These guys are designed to be difficult.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 369
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 369

Once those three are taken care of head forward and then to the right to go into the doorway at the top of the short stairs.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 370
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 370

You'll hear someone talking to Gould nearby and it becomes clear that Gould has been captured.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 371
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 371

Head forward and go towards the light to get another cutscene.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 372
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 372

After the horrifying cutscene you are left with two choices and you need to choose one fast. The first choice is to shoot the enemies by Gould in order to save him.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 373
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 373

The second choice is to follow Adams to save as many civilians as possible.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 374
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 374

I have played this game many times. This is going to be a spoiler for your choices so don't read it if you don't want to know. No matter which you choose to do Gould will die. The best choice is to try and save civilians as at least some can survive if you do.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 375
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 375

In this playthrough I chose to follow along with Adams' plan. So if you're following along go to the left and drop down to the hidden path below.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 376
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 376

I want to warn you, if you do choose to attempt to save Gould they will begin shooting as soon as you order Lugo to take the shot. It's another combat mission, so it's difficult the same as any other in this game, but Adams' plan is much more stealthy and goes over more silently.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 377
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 377

Anyway, heading down the hidden path you will have to wait to see how the scene with Gould plays out. Make sure to stay out of site and move when Adams moves.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 378
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 378

When the scene is done follow Adams to the right and stay down. If you have the M4 or a pistol remember to equip the silencer.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 379
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 379

You can take cover here and wait while Adams takes out this guard.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 380
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 380

When moving forward a little more Adams accidentally hits something (making noise) and a guard hears it. Adams tells you to take the guy out. If you don't have a silencer then this choice path will fail but still play out only louder which means the civilians will die and nothing will actually be accomplished. This isnt a big deal as there is a pistol around here you can pick up, but that's just something to know.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 381
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 381

If all goes well you can continue to follow Adams and sneak further into the camp.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 382
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 382

Adams will tell you to pick a target. It doesnt seem to matter which you pick but again do so silenced and it should go fine. You'll even save the civilians.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 383
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 383

If you did that successfully the civilians are safe and all the enemies will now be dead or gone so you can now search the camp for ammo and also check on Gould's body.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 384
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 384

We already know that Gould is dead but now we know what his plan was. So, without any further idea what to do, Walker decides to press on.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 385
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 385

Head back to where you saved the civilians. The next doorway is just ahead as well as another cutscene.
