Eliminated the enemy commander

The main target is the enemy commander located on top of the Platform they invaded. He patrols the top of this platform and sometimes even comes to its edge, close to where the stairs are. This is the perfect opportunity to take him out with our sniper. You can recognize him due to his high combat and intel stats.

To come closer, or even to the main hostage deck, use the platforms under the bridge. This way you’ll stay out of the enemy’s sight. If you want to extract him, you’ll have to go through the middle of the main platform, where the stairs and climbing pipes are. This part of the platform is heavily guarded. It is extremely hard to spot the guards here, as they can’t be seen and marked outside the platform. If you alert them, the commander and his guard will buckle up and stick together on top of the platform, not moving. Others will start patrolling the area, making it hard to move without being spotted.Keep in mind there are groups of your soldiers taken hostage. One of them is on the first platform you find yourself on, while the final is on top of the main platform where the commander is.
