When the opening cut scene finishes you take control of Walker behind a chopper mounted gatling gun.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 1
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 1

This sequence is pretty straight forward. Take out the attacking helicopters and enjoy the ensuing explosions. There are 9 helicopters total.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 2
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 2

There is no real strategy to doing this. Just aim your cross hair at the choppers and don't let up on the trigger. I usually try to aim for the guys in the back of the chopper to minimize how much I'm getting hit. As long as you don't let up you should survive.

After the cut scenes end (there are two here) you start off in Dubai in control of Walker.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 4
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 4

You are the captain of a small Delta team sent in to recon the evacuation of Dubai. Your subordinate soldiers are Lieutenant Adams and Sargeant Lugo. The commanding officer in charge of the evacutaion operation in Dubai sent a mysterious message and they are here to investigate what is going on and report back to command.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 5
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 5

The beginning tutorializes you a little bit by giving you basic control concepts. You should follow them to familiarize yourself.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 6
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 6

You can use the bottles on the walls to get used to the aiming and shooting. It's not to complicated and don't worry no one will hear you here.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 7
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 7

When you move forward you can get a better look at the area ahead. The camera does a nice focus zoom on it's own to show you a large panoramic view of Dubai from the outside. You'll also notice some kind of run down freeway to the bottom right.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 8
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 8

When you're done enjoying the view head to the right towards the sand bags. You can take the opportunity here to familiarize yourself with hopping over obstacles. This will be useful throughout the game.

Adams and Lugo are disturbed by the bodies of soldiers lying in the sand on the right here. This is a bad omen.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 10
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 10

When Adams is ready to move on use the rappel in front of the bodies going down to the messed up freeway.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 11
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 11

You will come up on an eerie site. Cars litter the street, which is now boxed in by sand on all sides, and wild life runs off into the distance.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 12
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 12

Head forward paying attention to the short dialogue between Lugo, Adams, and Walker. We can tell Walker is very serious in his duty and Lugo is not really. Adams tries to keep it cool.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 13
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 13

When you come up on a bus, Lugo says he thinks he heard somebody. You can also faintly hear some kind of radio transmission. Keep heading forward.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 14
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 14

It's some kind of distress beacon. Vault over the toppled strut and continue forward.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 15
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 15

You'll come up on another bus. Keep going forward, towards the sign.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 16
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 16

When you get to the back of the bus vault over to get inside.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 17
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 17

Then head straight and turn to the door on the right side of the bus at the front and climb down out of the bus.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 18
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 18

Head straight towards the crashed tanker and duck down to walk underneath it.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 19
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 19

Head forward between the semi and the tanker trucks and turn to the left.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 20
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 20

Adams notices there's some fresh blood by a humvee on the left. He beckons Walker over. Upon further investigation there's another dead soldier.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 21
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 21

While investigating the humvee some armed locals will appear behind the team.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 22
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 22

The team takes position behind some cargo containers.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 23
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 23

Lugo attempts to reason with the locals in the hopes that they will be more understanding.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 24
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 24

Adams informs you that you can shoot out the glass on the bus above which will cause the sand to crash down on them.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 25
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 25

Once the locals open fire on the Delta team (or before that if you want- you don't actually have to wait) take aim and quickly shoot out the windows to break the sand out which will crash down on the locals; burying them.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 26
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 26

Don't rest yet; there's more enemies on the left.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 27
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 27

When it's clear head forward and take cover behind the first set of cargo boxes. Reload if you need to.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 28
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 28

A shooter will come out on top of the bus; you should take him out first since he has high ground.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 29
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 29

Then several other shooters in the semi and around it will arrive. You'll notice there's a red canister in the back there. If you shoot that it will take out several enemies at once since they are bunched up in this small area.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 30
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 30

After you finish those guys off head up over the dune on the left.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 31
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 31

When you have that taken care of take cover behind the green colored car, and reload if you need to, then slip out to the right.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 32
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 32

Once you get around the car head to the left and take cover behind the wall closest to the bus.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 33
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 33

Be careful not to sit to far to the right or you'll get shot up real fast. If you get the option to command Adams and Lugo to use stuns use it to get the turret gunner off the gun for a second.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 34
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 34

Then take the chance to finish off the enemy inside and on top of the bus.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 35
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 35

Once it's clear, vault over the wall and head inside the bus.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 36
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 36

Head all the way to the right side of the bus and vault out the window.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 37
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 37

Walker slides into cover as a grenade is tossed at you. Don't worry, if the indicator is white that means you are not going to be harmed by the explosion.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 38
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 38

Once the explosion is done give the order to take out the sniper on the billboard ahead.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 39
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 39

This will casuse an explosion that takes out the sniper and the billboard.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 40
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 40

When that's done slip out to the right and take cover behind the closest wall.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 41
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 41

More enemies are going to come out of the cargo container ahead and on top of it. I recommend taking out the ones on top first, like before, as high ground has an advantage over you.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 42
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 42

Remember that you can also order your squad to take out specified targets and makes your AI team mates more effective at killing enemies.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 43
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 43

When you're done slip out of cover and head inside the cargo container.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 44
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 44

Head all the way down the container and open the door at the back.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 45
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 45

This will knock over an enemy that was standing behind it. Take him out.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 46
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 46

While taking a breather Lugo picks up a distress signal about 100 yards ahead. A 33rd patrol is seemingly under attack and is requesting help.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 47
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 47

Head straight and take cover behind the green barrels. Be careful, though, theres another nested turret ahead.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 48
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 48

When you've got yourself secured slip out to the right to get cover behind the wall where Lugo and Adams is.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 49
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 49

Then head to the left. Maintain your cover and slip out and get back into cover when necessary along the way.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 50
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 50

Head all the way to the left so you can get a shot behind enemy cover and take out those enemies.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 51
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 51

There's a red cannister behind the wall where the enemy is you can shoot to take them all out.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 52
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 52

More enemies arrive ahead of you on the ground and also on top of the hut. You can order your soldiers to take guys out. Then head towards the hut on the left when you're done.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 53
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 53

From the hut head straight past the cargo container.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 54
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 54

Lugo picks up another SOS from Alpha.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 55
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 55

When the cut scenes end head forward toward the airplane fin in front of you and equip your M4 or pistol with the silencer.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 56
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 56

Several guys are ahead and they are already fighting someone. You can take this opportunity to sneak up from behind and take them out. If you order Adams and Lugo to attack a target they will do so silenced until you are spotted.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 57
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 57

You can have them take out some guys while you take out closer ones.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 58
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 58

Remember to also take out the guys ahead of your position and then head forward taking cover behind the sand bags in front of the jet engine ahead.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 59
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 59

From here you'll see someone shooting out of the plane as well as a couple guys ahead and a couple more on the planes wing in the distance. Take out the guys closest to you first.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 60
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 60

Then head straight to take cover behind another cargo container. When you have your breath run ahead and take cover behind a big case directly in front of the cargo container.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 61
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 61

At about this point the enemy will know you are here. They always spot you about now and several guys start running out onto the wing of the plane. You should take them out.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 62
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 62

Make sure you also take out the guys that ran over by the humvee ahead and then go to the humvee and take cover.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 63
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 63

From the right side of the humvee, if you lean out of cover, you'll see several guys running out underneath the plane. Take them out too.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 64
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 64

Once they're all dead head forward to go inside the plane.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 65
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 65

Be careful when heading towards the stairs as there are enemies on the stairs as well as behind it above.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 66
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 66

Make sure you head up slowly so as not to get killed while going up the stairs. There will be at least two guys standing by the bar right behind the stairwell. One of them may run to the hallway on the left or right.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 67
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 67

After you take them out head towards the hallway on the right side ahead and take cover at the back wall.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 68
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 68

When it's clear go into the hallway and take cover at the wall. You can take out guys in the next room from here. Then head inside and take cover behind the chairs.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 69
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 69

Head to the left and take out any remaining enemies. Then vault over and head to the far back wall. This will trigger a cutscene.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 70
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 70

Once the cut scene ends you can either tell your guys to shoot the guy with the gun drawn on the soldier or you can shoot him, either way decide quickly and take out those guys in the room.

Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 71
Spec Ops: The Line Walkthrough - Spec Ops-The-Line 71

Unfortunately, you're too late. Alpha squad is down, and the last guy remaining only lives long enough to tell you where McPherson went. You're no closer to understanding what is happening here or where Konrad is.
