Walkthrough:Cold War Crisis
This walkthrough is written for v1.46/ v1.96
- Learn to control movement
- Learn to fire your rifle
This mission is very easy as it introduces you to Operation Flashpoint: Cold War Crisis. The mission will start in front of the barracks on a base. Keep an eye on the upper-left corner of your screen, were some hints will appear. The first order you will recieve is to run to a 5-ton truck and back. A waypoint will appear to guide you towards the location. Once you get back sling your file ("Put your rifle on your back"), via the Action Menu.
Now the more "fun" part will start. Follow your squad to another 5-ton truck parked just outside the gate and get in. (Note: you need to be at the back of the truck and facing it at which time an option will appear in the Action Menu to "Get in...") You will be driven to the obstacle course. Your Platoon Sergeant will order your the move through the obstacle course. "'Tip:'" Remain inside the obstacles and switch to 3rd person view to navigate easier. At the end of the lane you must run between the two concrete cones otherwise you will need to do it again. Run back to your Platoon Sergeant.
This last part is where the fun really begins! The rifle range! When ordered to do so, move to the ammo crate to the right of the firing line and take some magazines. Now move to the closest lane and you'll see three targets. Each target needs to be hit three times. You can either select single or 3-round burst mode by pressing on the spacebar. Drop all three targets. The mission will end afterwards.
- Secure the village of Morton.
Location: In UH-60 Blackhawk near Morton
Time: 0550 hours
Now the real action is going to start! No more safe training grounds. Prepare yourself as you're about to enter real combat.
Some tips before entering combat:
- Remain close to your squad but not so close as to let a single fragmenation grenade will kill most of you.
- Cover is protection from enemy fires. As you advance, use trees, rubble, sandbags, a comrade's dead body, depressions in the ground, anything that will protect you from becoming a casualty.
- Concealment is protection from the enemy's view. Usually this means if they can't see you, they can't hit you. Move in short bounds. Move fast. Usually what makes good cover makes good concealment. But not the other way around!
- Be aware of attempts to flank you and your squad.
- Press 5 -> 4 to call for a medic
- If you are out of ammo, just pick up more from a dead body, friend or enemy.
You will start in a UH-60 Blackhawk over the sea. It will ferry you towards the south-east of Morton, near a beach. Some choppers and tanks will help you with this mission taking out any enemy tank so don't worry about those yet. Your objective is to clear the Morton.
Disembark from the chopper and follow your squad to a group of trees were your Platoon Sergeant will quickly brief you. Stick with your squad. You will start to see some action in the village and some enemy troops moving around. Kill as many as you can but don't go running toward the town if you want to live. Your Platoon Sergeant will call out and mark any enemy, as indicated by a target marker which will appear. Use cover and concealment as you move toward your designated objective.

Once you've reached the top position of the hill you'll see some trees and bushes, take cover there. In the distance you see the village of Regina. Scan for enemies soldiers in the bushes and the village and fire at them. There are also some in the woods to the east.

Now move to Ea73 cross the road at Dh73. At Ea73 you see a large base keep it for the second Shilka and report it. Now move directly south to Ea75 and next to the road is the last Shilka, report it and move to Ea78.
- Neutralize the enemy presence in Levie. Radio Zulu team to hold the village. Be aware that Zulu team is running at reduced strength.
- Objective A is the enemy base to the south of Levie. Eliminate all Soviet forces there.
- Objective B is the fortified position at Gg72. Secure and hold this outpost.
Location: Tankcamp in the middle of Everon.
Time: 0730 hours.
You in control of the tank platoon again, move south to Levie. It is best to stay behind a bit from your other tank to keep giving targets. Destroy all tanks and press 0-0-1 to call for some backup to secure Levie. You may expect a counterattack from the enemy base south of Levie. If your tank are damaged call for support. Even if some are slightly damaged or wounded it is essential to repair and heal everyone for the next objective. Move to the enemy base now and destroy all tanks and RPG soldiers. Continue to the final objective, even more tank and AT infantry are position there so be carefull. Destroy the fortification and tanks.
- Follow your flight plan, which takes you over Morton and Durras to Saint Pierre.
- Support NATO's tank force, designated Zulu and Foxtrot, to ensure the city is liberated.
- Return to base.
Location: Airfield near Montignac.
Time: 1130 hours.
This time you fly an AH-64 Apache helicopter. Fly south to Morton as per mission plan. On the way to Saint Pierre you need to aid Buffalo base to defend it from BMP's, use your FFAR and destroy the BMP's. Don't waste any Hellfires, you are going to need them in Saint Pierre against much heavier resistance. Once Buffalo radio's you everything is OK move to Saint Pierre. Check your radar for a Shilka and fire a hellfire at them. There is also an Hind, use your AI and machine gun to destroy it quickly. Now destroy the T80 first otherwise Zulu will get badly bombed by them. Switch to FFAR once your Hellfires are gone to destroy the rest, there are also some boats and ural truck in saint pierre. Keep circling above the town untill you get the RTB order.
Wake Up Call
- Destroy Shilka one.
- Destroy Shilka two.
- Destroy Shilka three.
- Hide out in the woods and await further orders.
Location: At the coast of Kolgujev.
Time: 0335 hours.
Remember the mission 'Recon' you did earlier? Well now it is time to destroy all three Shilkas you found. You are at Eg76 at the beach. Just follow the road to the base and kill the patrol which is near to the road. Half-way on the road to the base go directly west so you'll get to the fences. Make sure everyone is in stealth mode. There is a hole in the fence move thru the fence, wait for the patrol on the north side to vanish and kill the crew (dudes in black uniforms) members so that they can't operate the Shilka. Crawl alone to the Shilka and place a bomb, set it to a couple of minutes so you have time to get away from the base. Now go to EA75 were the next Shilka is next to the road. This one is easy, only 3 crew that standing by a fire. Kill them and destroy the Shilka. Now keep on the north side of the road, about 100m away from it and move to Df72 in front of the base there are some trees, use em as cover. At the north side of the base is a T72 so we want to avoid that. Kill the crew and place the bomb, do not detonate it yet as we want to move away to Di71. Once you feel its safe detonate the bomb and hide in the woods.
- Head to Kolgujev
Location: Ready for take-off.
Time: 0445 hours.
This mission has two parts. First you must board the A-10 plane. Turn of the engine and light so you can see the planes in front of you beter. Slowly start rolling once the others are moving. Turn your plane on the taxiway to the main runway. Wait untill the other planes are in the air then press 'E' and when you are moving fast enough pull up. Gear up and kill the lights. Wait till you speed is around ~200 and turn the plane into the direction of your leader and continue with the next part.
- Eliminate all enemy armor in Southern Kolgujev.
Location: Above the ocean, 5 miles north-east of Kolgujev.
Time: 0500 hours.
Keep following your leader and select your Maverick rockets. These things will destroy any armor with one shot and can take very sharp turns so 1 shot 1 kill. Use your radar to lock onto targets. On the sea you will encounter two patrol boats which you need to destroy and then keep flying to Kolgujev. Red squares will appear in the radar, fire one Maverick on each square. Return to back south, but you will get engine trouble and need to bail out so eject in the air be sure you are high enough to do so though. You are captured on the ground by soviet forces.
- Swiftly move up the hill to the first Soviet base and mop up any infantry the A-10s missed.
- Prepare your troops for a substantial Soviet counter-attack from the North and West. Reinforcements (Charlie team) will arrive as soon as they can.
- Defeat the counter-attack.
- If enough of your troops have survived, move West to take the second Soviet base. Charlie will assist.
Location: Near to beach, Kolgujev
Time: 1030 hours.
You are inserted in the air by parashute. Now is a great time to check for enemy near your landing zone so you know from which direction they might attack you. Kill any soldiers and move to Eb74 to south of the base. Move through to openings in the fence and start attacking the enemy infantry. Deploy defensive positions after the attack as the soviets will launch an counterattack with some BMP's and infantry. Deploy your sniper somewhere north outside the base. Keep checking the west and north for enemies now. Hold fire untill they are close and order your men to fire at will. After the counterattack has been defeated move west to Dh72. Wait there untill Charlie is ready, then attack with Charlie the last base.
- Escape from the enemy
Location: Somewhere North on Kolgujev.
Time: 1800 hours.
You are now playing the pilot again who has been captured earlier by the soviets. They are going to execute you so you must find a way to escape from the enemy. At the beginning you are taken to another base by a Hind. (You can get in Gind again (as pilot for now) and fly away.) At arrival an gaurd will take you to a tent, on the way there is a ruined building with an archway. In that archway is an ammocrate with an AK you can take that and kill everything in sight. Or you can walk to the tent, wait for a gaurds to look at the opposite direction and board the BMP as gunner and kill everyone. Don't use the roads because they are patroling them heavily. When it is clear move on the hill *run sideway on the hill so you can keep runnning) to the SW and keep running between the forest. Then go south by using the stars and after a while you are saved.
You can also make a run for it just after landing and steal the Hind. With some care you can quite literally eliminate everything on the island. Watch out for Shilkas!
- Get inside and steal the documents from the general's house
- Escape from the area.
Location: Somewhere in deep occupied Kolgujev.
Time: 0230 hours.
Now this one is quite difficult. You need to cross some fencing which is being watched by patrols and watchtowers. The only way in is to use the main gate at the road. Watch out for tanks and kill the gaurds at the gate. Hide and wait for any patrols and kill them aswell, then move north into the trees. Avoid the base. Move to the trees at BH44, then to BF43. Scan the area around the house and start killing them. There are no enemy inside the house so run in for the documents and get back to the trees. Use the same path back and escape again.
Use your time and keep checking your surroundings.
The most productive strategy, points-wise, is to take 2 LAWs and a Demo pack. Fire the LAWs at the T72 that appears at the first gate and then wait. Stay in the bushes that you first appear in, and keep low. A T80 will appear and come straight towards you. It will not see you if you remain prone, so lay your charge next to it when it has stopped and crawl far away, and detonate the charge. This will kill the tank. Then run to the base south-west of your location and steal the T72. You will be warned that you are lost as you approach the base, but ignore it and keep going. With care, you can eliminate absolutely everything in Guba's compound, but watch out for RPG soldiers.
If you're very, very careful, you can also sneak into the base in Guba's compound and steal a Hind, but this is almost impossible. In order to do it you have to eliminate most of the enemy soldiers and a Shilka or two, so it's not really worth the effort.
Search And Destroy
- Proceed to the launch area and pinpoint the SCUD as quickly as possible.
- The launch site will be heavily defended. Having assessed the situation, call in Zulu (three M1A1s), for help. Advise them whether to proceed by the Eastern or the Western route.
- If it's safe to do so, you may also call November (two Cobras) for additional support.
- Destroy the SCUD.
- Get back in one piece.
Location: Central Kolgujev
Time: 1525 hours.
Tip: Remain undecteded as long as possible. Get an LAW and M21.
Move with your troops with the truck to the west at Ed51 in the forest. In front of the forest disembark and continue on foot to avoid detection. Watch for an enemy Spetznatz patrol and kill them. Prolly now you get to hear that you only have 5 minutes left before the SCUD will launch. At this point order Zulu to take the western route and call in November so enemies do not fully concentrate on you only. Mostly the tanks and choppers will not survive in this mission because of the numbers of Shilkas and tanks in one area. Make your approach in the cover of the trees at Ec51-52, you will get an clear shot at the SCUD from there, destroy it at all cost. Keep hiding in the trees. Move back to Ec53 and then east and escape quickly from the enemy area.
- Arrest General Guba before he leaves the island.
- Be sure to deal with any last-minute surprises from Guba.
- Get back.
Time: 1845 hours
At the start at base jump in the M113 and follow the road south. Keep driving untill you reach an destroyed village and take a right turn. Keep moving untill you get to an base (EC46). Kill the two guards and at the other side there is an Hind. Let your men board it while you take the fuel truck. Position it near the Hind and get in as pilot and refuel it trough the action menu. Fly to ED36 and destroy a Shilka with the AT-6 rockets. Now move to EI37. On the Northern roads destroy any tanks you may encounter. Then move to FA33 and land it on the road, prepare an ambush. Save your game so you don't accidently kill Guba. Wait for an UAZ to drive an shoot its tyres so you can capture General Guba, he is unarmed. He will tell you there is an second SCUD. Let everyone board the hind again. Fly to I3 over the sea the avoid additional Shilka's or you can attemp to destroy them. Then fly to IF21 and land safely. Move up the hill to IH20 search for the SCUD, if it isn't there move to IJ16, watch out for a Shilka and BMP with infantry there. If you find the SCUD at either IH20 or IJ16 fire an LAW at it to win this conflict :).
The hind is at ED46, SCUD at IH20/IJ16.
- Land at Everon.
- Meet with Robert
- Meet with Sam
- Meet with David

Location: Underway to Everon airport
Time: 1755 hours
Well this mission doesn't involve combat but you can still die in accidents (like plane/car ;-) ) or be arrested if you steal any army vehicle. First land safely at the airport. The officer at the airport will tell you to ask the pilot if they can give you a ride. The pilot will say they will fly to Morton in a few minutes. Just wait and you'll be in Morton in notime. Or you can take the sport car at the airport but refuel it first.
Find a car there a drive to Lamentin. Pick Robert up near the church. Then go to Laruns, the resistance fellows at the fire will tell you he is gone fishing but will return in a while. Pick him up at the beach. Now move to FI67 to pick up David Armstrong. Additionally you can pick up the resistance leader at the castle ruins. Hes on top of the tower. Then get them all to the pub and drink a beer ;). Cheers!
