Splinter Cell Walkthrough - Georgian Presidential Palace

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 1. You begin the mission sporting a new ninja look.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 2. Time for a jumping puzzle. Clockwise from top left: wall jump to this ledge; drop down the ledges on the other side; mantle up to this ledge, climb this pipe.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 3. Jump to this ledge; shimmy along these bars, drop to this ledge and shimmy around the corner.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 4. Mantle onto this ledge; jump across these gaps; shimmy along this ledge.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 5. Finally, mantle up this ledge then climb this pipe. Whew!

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 6. Hold at the top until the coast is clear. There are guards and dogs here.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 7. This area is easy to Rambo and difficult to stealth. Here's a compromise: snipe the sniper and the two dogs. If you are careful to fire when no one is near, you won't turn any heads.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 8. Here is a good spot from which to snipe. (The sniper tower is behind you.)

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 9. Dart into the hedge maze, avoiding the guards and the search light.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 10. The center of the maze empties into this fountain. Grab this guard.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 11. Knock him out in the dark shrubbery. Take his satchel for a data stick with the keypad code - 2126.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 12. A guard patrols beyond the gate. (Note the keypad to the left.) You can shoot out the lights to provide cover, or you can snipe the guard.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 13. Approach the keypad and enter the code you snatched off the guard - 2126.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 14. Hide the body in the hedge with the other.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 15. Here's a nice touch. This doorway on the left has a moth flittering about the door light. Notice how the moth's shadow dances on the ground. Slide open this vent and ender the presidential palace.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 16. Inside you'll find this medical kit, and a disposable pick on the crate to the left.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 17. Up the stairs you'll find this medical kit on a desk.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 18. Make sure your night vision is on for this next area. Avoid the security beams.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 19. Pick the lock on this door at the back wall.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 20. Pick up this lock pick on the table's edge.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 21. This is another spot to have fun with the light.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 22. Re-enter through this door. Guards now patrol the area.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 23. Knock the guards out and put their bodies in the back room.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 24. Exit out this door.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 25. Thermal goggles reveal security beams on the stairs.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 26. Wall jump to bypass the beams.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 27. More beams at the top -- climb over the railing to defeat them.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 28. A pair of strategically-placed diversion cameras (and strategically-timed knockout gas) takes these two guards out of commission.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 29. That leaves these two, who can quickly be dropped with your SC-20K.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 30. Hide all four bodies in the dark corner under the balcony. The guards on the upper two levels each have a data stick. The topmost guard's data stick reveals the corridor door code 70021.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 31. Enter the code 70021. Go quietly, there are four guards on the other side.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 32. Sneak down these stairs to a medical kit. Come back upstairs.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 33. These guards can easily be bypassed with good timing. Head down the corridor when they're facing away.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 34. Shadow these two, then turn left at this corridor.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 35. Keep the camera's back to you and you'll be fine.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 36. Pick this lock and enter.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 37. Use your night vision or thermal goggles to detect when it's safe to cross. Crouch walk when the lower beams are inactive.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 38. Jump over the lower beam when the middle beam is inactive.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 39. Head left through the bookshelves.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 40. Knock out this guard before he turns on the lights. Hide the body in this dark corner (inset). Recover a data stick from his satchel.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 41. Use the computer to update your objectives and obtain a data stick with the library door code 66768. Exit through the door visible in the background.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 42. Grab this medical kit from the table. Backtrack through the previous room to the hallway, careful to avoid the security beams.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 43. Again through this hall, careful to avoid the security camera and the patrols. Turn left at the corridor.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 44. Move slowly, stay in the shadows and time your movement to avoid the guards. Pass through the double doors at the end of the hall.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 45. Another security camera. Keep its back to you as it turns. Exit through the rear-left door to load the next area.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 46. Use the keypad to the left of the double doors. The code is 66768.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 47. Swipe this medical kit and the 5.56MM ammo.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 48. Ahead is an elevator. The elevator entrance is on your right. Pause here and watch the patrols' routine as they circle.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 49. Move right while the guards move left.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 50. Stay in the shadows and you can pass right under this guard's nose.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 51. Approach the elevator door when the guards have their backs to you.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 52. Push the call button, the elevator opens. Step inside and press the "Down" button to descend to the library.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 53. Rats! All that stealthy prowess and they've found you anyway. Don't feel bad, it's unavoidable.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 54. Ready your SC-20K and your heat vision. Exit the elevator and dash behind this row of bookshelves on the right.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 55. More Georgian soldiers await. Collect all four!

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 56. One body has no satchel. The others each have a single satchel. Your booty includes a data stick, a frag grenade, and a medical kit.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 57. Find this passageway. Descend down the ramp.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 58. That's Nikoladze straight ahead. Capturing him is not a problem.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 59. Interrogate Nikoladze then drag him to the retinal safe.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 60. Cristavi's men have you surrounded, but Lambert arranges a blackout to provide you some cover.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 61. Run back up the ramp. Lambert updates your objectives -- you must kill Kombayn Nikoladze.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 62. The doors to this courtyard are now open. Guards patrol the balconies and the fountains. Snipe these three lights before entering.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 63. Carefully cross the courtyard. The pipe ahead is your destination.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 64. Climb the pipe, shimmy along the ledge, then mantle onto the balcony.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 65. A brief cutscene plays of Nikoladze through this window. Lambert orders you to snipe him. Now. Remember to hold your breath to steady your shot (default Alt).

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 66. Lambert congratulates you on your marksmanship. Almost immediately, this guard comes through the right door. Snipe him before continuing.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 67. Head through this door and down the stairs.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 68. Fight your way into this dining room. There are two guards approaching you and one on the balcony behind you. It's easiest to hold back and let them come to you. If you want a firefight, continue through the double doors straight ahead (inset). Everyone else -- proceed to the far-left corner of the dining room.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 69. Jason Langdon came up with this next part. Climb onto the cabinet seen lower-left, then jump onto this railing. Climb over the railing and quietly proceed through the double-doors ahead.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 70. Sneak around to the far side of the overlook. The area below is where you would be if you had continued through the double-doors.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 71. Climb over the railing then drop to the floor below. Be sure to crouch before you hit bottom to silence your fall.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 72. Approach this door to trigger the endgame.

Splinter Cell Walkthrough Screenshot 73. The final series of cutscenes plays. Sam dodges the palace guards' gunfire and escapes onto the Osprey to end the mission. Game over.
