A crazed militia seizes the top floors of a major hotel and plants explosives all over the place! It’s the SWAT team’s deadliest mission yet! Will Lieutenant Spoony be up to the challenge? Or did the title spoil it for you?
FINALLY FIIRST COMMENT!!!!
Go Spoony GO!!!
At least you have never lost because of the bombs?^^ I’m totally with you with the frustration thing :-)
JESUS CHRIST Spoony! you’re made of sterner stuff than I for certain. I’d have quit at 29, but no, FUCK THAT you went to god damn 59 and FINISHED the level. Well Played, Good sir!
They aren’t wearing gas masks, so that pepperball gun makes short work of those bathroom pricks.
Shame on you, PsychoMantis.
I thought this kind of thing would happen, I thought that’s why there was a delay for this new episode.
My guess was 57!!! Off by 2!! Kickass!! Thanks for suffering through all this for the entertainment of all of us, Spoony.
use the bean bag rounds!!!
turns the game into easy mode since you could just shoot anyone indiscriminately and they’ll just surrender!
but you gotta watch your ammo tho. only like 30 bean bags.
Woah Spoony has Razer DeathAdder and Logitech Gaming Keyboard, nice!
I would say 40 hours and up.
Very good, I was looking forward into next SWAT4.
ZOMG NEW VID
Spoony,mah boi,you never cease to amaze me.
Wow….i guessed it would take 60 attempts. Almost had it right.
Also, i completed that mission in 6-10 attempts.
i also had trouble with this level since the suspects would just shoot without hesitation with deadly accuracy.
so if you are using a lethal weapon then you have no choice but to shoot them first and get the penalty.
but if you use the bean bag shotgun then you can get your shot off first so they become stunned or simply surrender. they usually surrender after one or two shots.
could make for a great episode when you finally realize how easy the game is with the bean bag.
Spoony you should try the german rifle (if I can recall, it’s left of the carbine) and use SEMI automatic instead of full AUTO. I don’t know if it’ll work for you, but it certainly did for me. If you can’t remember, to change mode you press X.
If you see a gun sticking out, use the gas nade. If you see a guy moving, don’t. You get killed too often trying to nade people (which is good thinking, but this game will fuck you in the ass for trying to be actually smart, unlike your teammates).
Also, I don’t know how you equip your guys, but don’t be lazy and set their nades right. Try to pack maybe two stingers (between all of them) for those bathrooms. I know they haven’t helped you in previous levels but I think they will be useful in really really closed spaces. Even though in those spaces breaching the door with C4 should just do it (but we all know it doesn’t).
That’s about it. You don’t need to follow all of this, but I’d really like to see you try the german rifle with semi, it did help me a lot. By the way, when is the hospital coming? I got the game and I’m following your playthrough but I think I beat the hospital and then this level came (which I haven’t even played yet).
PS. I think the second guy of each team (blue and red) die more often than the others, probably because they go in first. If you have to equip something very specific on one of your guys, make it the first of his team. (Unconfirmed)
59 times, holy shit….
About those bathroom campers… You should try to blow the door with C4 since the badguy will get incapacitated and you won’t get an unauthorized use of deadly force.
I can really understand that it was hard without the non-lethal weapons O.o I think I had to replay it like 10-15 times even with non-lethal weapons.
wow, 59 attempts? Must have been pretty frustrating to say the least hehe. Congratulations on finishing the level, and on another great video :)
Oh, I almost forgot. You can use the mirror in corners. It can help in long hallways when they’re not moving nor sticking a gun out but still pointing at you from a distance. I know, very specific, but still.
Sorry for trying to teach you, I just felt like some of these tips might help you if you hadn’t already figured it out. Just for your comfort, you can be sure I’m far worse than you.
A less groomed hair for spooney. Just shows that he suffered many deaths that lead him to Insano.
yeah i gave up on this level after about 5 attempts…
Thats some serious commitment to the fans there, oh spoony one.
For the guys hiding in the bathrooms I would blow the door with C4. The blast stuns them every time (at least when I played it). After that I would proceed to taser the guy. Since it’s non lethal then the game doesn’t take points off if you forget to yell at them before firing.
well the WC guys are hard but…. On this level i go silently. As I saw on review you used C4 to open the door I was using wand and multitool before opening the door. then i opened the door by myself and instantly pushed the F button. and I’m using only non-lethal wepons and only one time i was suprised by this F…. :D
DIE!! DIE YOU FUCKER!! FUCK YOU GUYS TOO! :D
FUCK YOU GUYS, TOO!
Ha, ha, ha! I love it, man.
Would Lockpicking the door have been more stealthy? …. i mean, whenever i blew the door to pieces, the guys in the bathrooms would always come out and annihilate my team but i found out (after loosing all my team and using all my C2) that if you pick the lock and enter quietly then they dont come out …. unless that was a fluke the few times i tried it.
So there is only one more mission to go? have you thought about providing a commentary over your death-a-thon?
I love to watch LP’s, and i wouldnt mind watching the entire series of recordings for one mission, i understand that others wouldnt, but mayby putting your first full ‘attempt’ in, a montage of failed attemp snipets, then the full successfull attempt (or bitesize) … with a comentary of sorts (probably a rant) over the deaths part, telling us what problems you found in this level, and offering advise
Have to love hardcore gamers. You tried FIFTY-NINE times and people are telling you, “You should have done this.”. By about attempt thirty, that CD would have been my newest ashtray.
59 times ???? I was thinking along the way of 14 or so times before the montage started …. Now i understand the reason why you said the other day that for a very good reason, you could not continue the Swat review for now lol.
Wow, Spoony you are on FIRE! So much new content in so short period time. Keep up the good work!
Love your music Spoony and funny as always!!
Crouch… Before you shoot or go around a corner or enter a room, crouch, it makes your accuracy better, less possibility of them actually hitting you and especially extremely hard for them to shoot your legs. It’s a tactic you pick up from playing the game online, where most people always crouch before taking a shot. Also, when crouching, it’s harder for the enemy to hear you sneak up on them. It wont always work, but I do strongly advise this tactic.
Also, for the bathroom guys, run in as fast as possible and stand in front of the door, don’t let them out until you are ready.
Congrats on completing it though
Does my eyes decive me or is that a Logitech G series keyboard :D
I guessed it would have taken you about 70 times. 59 is still a lot though. haha.
You took a bullet with this one man. I salute you, and if this the last SWAT video you do I don’t blame you. Damn that looked tough.
i got through this level after 3 attempts but I was really really drunk & was very gung ho..& didn’t understand how dangerous the mission was..the huge problem for me was I had killed all the guys & was drunkenly wandering around looking for the bombs
I can imagine your pain… Had a few times like this on other games…
How ever you don’t know what REAL pain is until you play Indiana Jones and the Emperor’s Tomb the first time (or first time in years), still getting used to the controls and jump length, and you get to that damn ******* hanging bridge with multiple steps missing…
When i first played that (it was one of the first non strategic games i played so don’t blame me) i fell 25 (or so) times before i could menage to get to the HALF of the bridge… What happened then? Little cut scene of Indy falling into the river bellow… FALLING IN THE ******* RIVER BELLOW!
So if you fall down from somewhere you die except if god decides to give you a friggin’ cut scene about it?
Anyways, thanks for the laughs and keep on fighting!
(I’m not sure if this works i don’t play SWAT4… Well not anymore but if i remeber well if you press the open button twice at a door it starts to open then closes. If you face the “shotgun camper of doom” problem once again, try to do this trick and toss in a flash bang or gas grenade while the door is slightly open, then shut it back closed so it can explode before the camper gets to pull the trigger.)
Now if you excuse me i have a Lucas Arts product to erase from my memory.
Wow, My guess was 36…
But Spoony, damn this must’ve taken forever to plat that’s like ~15 min x 59 times = more than 14 hours…
You have my respect Lieutenant Spoony. May none get in your way
flub is a great word! That was fantastic, spoony.
I used the sting grenade on the bathroom guy, works every time if you go in the room before it quietly, although I will admit that after like 50-60 fails I switched to easy for the 0 point clear and just gunned them all down on sight lol.
i noticed playing this game too that everyones head seems to be gun height no matter if your standing or crouching. wasted many a hostage that way
I remember this mission. It’s made out of pure pain.
Something is a bit off with your voice audio that’s different from your room audio. I don’t know if it’s echo, if it’s that the room is bigger or what.
Finally I saw you play this torture of a level Spoony and I must say: Damn Spoony stop charging like a cowboy. I got to admit I also got killed allot but because the team AI is for shit and they died really stupid. I had to beat once the level on GOD mode just to see the other levels and this level was the hardest. I even lost once for overusing deadly force like you did and once because the bomb exploded but most of the time for charging in like and idiot or my team mates charged like idiots. I would recommend for the next level you pack only flash bangs, especially if they all wear masks, when you see enemies near the door you use the pepper spray on them when you open the door because your team mates are useless and they don’t incapacitate an enemy, you split you team in 2. One team will charge with flash bangs and use weapons with silencers and the other team will always defend your back and will carry heavier weapons because that will be the team you go in after the silent team enters. You always mirror the doors and pack pepper spray because that will make an enemy give up immediately if you get him of guard or he’s blinded. Oh and when you see two enemies near one another you use the pepper spray to incapacitate them and than scream get down.
You look anemic
btw LOVED absolutely LOVED the clones review dude.. and your commentary of final fantasy which ive never ever played and never will.. you’re just hilarious and i love the stoner bum! and dr insano was good in clones too
I loved this video.
I actually started to play Swat4 a week before the first Lets play Swat 4 video and I played through in couple weeks, so i finished it some time ago so i don’t remember much of it, but i think that in the bathroom part if you blow the door with the explosives that stuns the guys… most of the times, and screw with shouting police or stop or whatever. I was eating lead like crazy so one level i just lost it and started shooting those idiots that ran away, at the sight of my glorious self, in the back. Police brutality is what? muhahahaha
I had more problems with the hospital level, but this one was a pain because of the bomb timer!! 2nd worst to me.
I also like the part when Spoony takes cover behind the transparent plastic wall before sending the grenade, lol epic.
I would have bet it took at least 60 tries, but I was too much of a lazy bum to post before watching.
I must say, the final level is actually easier than this, especially because, If I remember right, the enemies there don’t wear gas masks.
Now, In case Spoony does read this, I have two questions:
1. What happened to the hospital level? (It came before the arms deal level)
2. Are we going to see you play some Stetchkov Syndicate(the expansion pack) missions? Some of the footage in the intro is from SS, and besides, who doesn’t want to go around punching civilians in the face and throwing lightsticks at them(without getting any penalties)?
You are deserving of much praise there, Spoony. I guessed 54, and thought THAT was high.
I guessed 26. I was wrong. Well, at least you got past the level. Barely.
Wow man, just wow. Such commitment and integrety is impressive, your destrucity is strong. =o
woho, i said to myself that if Spoony makes a new SWAT movie then i shall begin commenting here.
you’re my hero Noah
This level was a huge pain in the ass. It took a lot of attempts.
I eventually started checking the hallway on the first floor, then doing the entire top floor, and returning to the first floor rooms later because I hated getting killed on the top floor after 20 minutes only to have to redo the first floor again.
Also, the best method for the bathroom guy seems to be to pick the lock for the room, enter without grenade. Open the bathroom door with C2, and tase the guy if he doesn’t surrender.
I think on my successful attempt, I ended up doing the second half alone. Not sure how I pulled that off.
There is a way to beat almost every level of this game and still get a above 80-90+ points. You have to have that beanbag shotgun at all times. You can even shot the enemy without shouting freeze.
But I’m gonna guess… Around 30 times. it could be more or less.
But I’ve been able to get trough these type of levels easier then most people think. It takes some time to understand how the game works. But most of it follows the same path as the other levels. try to sneak up on them. Your S.W.A.T. team may not be the best guys (Thanks to the A.I. developers of the game). So sometimes you have to go alone. You can even go through the hardest difficulty all alone, and arrest them all using the beanbag shotgun at all time.
Uhm, how about using C2 on those doors?
I guessed 32 attempts way wrong.
Your in my way sir Blam execution style. Wow that happened alot.
If you think, you got bad resistance there, just watch how damn annoying they are if you try to talk them down – in german!
I actually used to start on the top floor and disarm the bombs first because it’s so much harder than clearing the hotel rooms.
And if it comes to clearing the bathrooms, I would always go in alone, use the wand, then quietly open the lock. Then you position yourself just next to the door, open it and wait for the suspect to come out. This gives you plenty of time to shout “Police” and you can taser him before he even sees you.
Also I find the hospital level a lot (!) harder, I finally made it by clearing the whole hospital by myself with a paintball-gun (actually the mightiest weapon in the game and vitally important when civillians are around and not to be shot) and only used my team for the lower part of the level.
i got a tip for sponny.
play coop online its really good training
There’s a pretty big humming noise and some echo. Are you using the camera’s internal mic?
This level didn’t kick my ass NEARLY as hard as the hospital one. Or the final one. THAT one is a scream-inducer. And while I’m not a huge fan of the musical montage that been going on in these lately, this one was a lot better just due to the fact that your commentary wasn’t taken out of a lot of them. The anguished cries to a deafened god are always funny.
But yes – fuck that level. I got sniped so many times by camping bitches it was awful…
First pick the lock and WALK, not run into the room.
Use C2 on bathroom door + possible tazer secures the guy in the bathroom.
Gas is very usefull in this level. And many of the suspects stay in certain spots unlike the previous missions.
By the way, will you do the expansion pack also?
I can’t help it, when Spoony turned around and shot his own men, I cracked up and had to stop the video for a second
You fool! I mean… ME FOOL!
That was funny as hell
the music was too loud during the montage couldnt hear you well spoony.
Damn dude you rule. I play Swat 4 and i feel your pain, great job man. The fact that enemies in the game are better shots than fucking Mark Walburg in The Shooter is insane. i loved the comment at the end that THEY are in the way was hilarious, your reaction to shooting your own guy at 8:40 had me crying laughing.
Funny as usual.
just do not use lethal weapons
paintball gun with pepper balls and a taser, all you need
for bathrooms: open the door yourself and shoot taser immediately, works
but this mission is without a doubt, the hardest of this game
this was the best yet – i love your reactions to all the shit that happens throughout. “no, you FOOL! …er, ME FOOL!”
I have never played Swat 4, but I can just imagine the pain and frustration being felt.. since I’ve had similar experiences myself in other games. I’ll just say that it didn’t hurt the review at all and is still a strong submission into the Swat 4 Let’s Play. That’s more a testament to your ability to keep it from being boring and monotonous. The cries of victory at the end were great too.
I also love the Beverly Hills Cop thing you have going with these videos… Glenn Frey’s ‘The Heat Is On’ in #9 and Bob Seger here. I have an unnatural soft spot for corny 80s music tho.. so maybe that’s just me. Excellent job, Spoony, I’ve been waiting for more Swat 4. This definitely didn’t disappoint at all.
I liked this mission…I didn’t have as much trouble with it, though I never used the Assault Carbine, always the .45 SMG or pepper ball gun (which is great as you don’t have to give warning and can shoot anything you like). I died a few times before I figured out how to do it, though…my way was to start in the stairwell, go up and wedge the first door, clear the top level and then go back down and wedge the door again once I’d gone through…though I hear using snipers to pick the people on the roof off is a good idea.
My guess: 73 Attempts. I wonder if you could door jam the bathrooms, clear out the top floor, then return afterwords.
Probably the best SWAT mission video yet
This was one of the best ones yet. I loved the part where the guy put his hands up and then shot you.
I’d have to say the last level was the worst for me, because there are so many doors you have to watch or wedge, and door wedges mean less grenades. But this one was really tough too. I ended up using snipers when I could. I also really hated the fire alarms that were going off, because you couldn’t hear if there were any bad guys.
Kudos indeed. I wrote 25 times, and even so I thought it surely couldn’t be that much.
I hope the next levels are a breeze from here.
I must say that I was inspired to buy this game after watching your playthrough. I don’t know what level caused me more pain, this one or the GE Crop building level. So, in short, I feel your pain. I think it took me about 30 attempts to beat this level, and this is running the game on a non-gaming computer. Anyways, this is a good game and I thank you for turning my eyes to the first PC game I ever bought.
Haha most epic ending ever. And wow your team-mates really are asses. Makes me glad I have games like CoD4 and Halo where even though your teammates are useless, you can do everything yourself. :D
P.S. Lol Spoony has the same mouse and speakers as me. Random note. Sorry.
Lol, gotta say I really appreciate these SWAT 4 playthroughs. Watched part 1 to 10 yesterday, lol, couldn’t stop watching them. Keep up the good work and tell Reynolds to STFU :)
Die! Diiiie! *turns gun on comrades* FUCK YOU GUYS TOO!
I know what you’re talking about, Spoony.. that asshole in the toilet.. I died millions of times because of that butthead. That was absolutely the worst thing about this whole game. The dickhead in the toilet.
I also experienced the “yay, last floor now I’m going to beat this leve- *BANG, you’re dead*” feeling… Great video, Spoony! There’s still something like one or two levels left?
Absolutely marvellous, well worth the wait and still highly entertaining.
Those SWAT team members had it coming.
There is a foolproof way of taking care of that guy in the bathroom that I found: C2. Go into the room with the bathroom (using lock picks so you don’t let the guy know you’re there) and place C2 on the door. The explosion will stun him, letting you use either your taser or some pepper spray to subdue him without losing a single guy. It worked EVERY time. But yeah, this was the hardest level in the game for me. At least it only gets easier.
Classic, will their be anymore, if so do the expansion pack levels,
The taser doesn’t suck in that one
Haha I wondered why it took so long before we saw another SWAT video. Now we know why.
Yeah that level was pain in the ass. With all my teammates down and me injured I decided to scew the points once and go FPS style. Finished the level barely, but with rather low points…
One thing though, dont know from your videos if you tried this but perhaps you should scratch that Assault Rifle for a little while? It sucks IMO. Whats the point of having higher stopping power if you cant stay put long enough and aim anything quickly? 45 SMG with ammo depending on situation is great. Might need a few more hits to drop a baddie but they go down faster than with Assault Rifle where majority of ammo is sprayed around the fricking walls in tight firefight situations… Peppergun is kickass too. This is just my experience though.
Ha! 60 was my guess. Man, attempt 31 would have killed my soul.
Dang 59…I get frustrated after just 10 tries on a level.
Thanks Spoony for another awesome video.
I’m guessing just by reading the last 10 comments Master Spoony ran into some opposition on this one. And it’s a biatch even with ze cheat codes. But the one I found in the expansion pack is more of a Frack you than this level. I’ll loan you a copy of the expansion if you don’t have it. Wrist slashing good level that one =P
I’m playing through SWAT 4 as well, and I found that for the bathroom guys, and other guys in small rooms who just point at the door waiting, if you open the door and kind of step to the side of the door, or like open it from the side then they’ll just shoot through the open doorway when it opens sometimes.
Like in other words, dont have people standing in the doorway when it opens and they’ll just shoot at nothing sometimes, then you sort of have a slight element of surprise instead of just getting jacked.
Also this level took me tons of times as well, in fact I think I might still be on it its been awhile since I’ve played it. But I’ll say it took you a good… 27 times :P
I mean I have faith in you but this level is brutal. Keep it up Noah, your videos make my life :)
whoa this lvl sucks i feel sorry you Spoony you had to play through the lvl like what 37 times?
darn I guessed an outragious 57 but i guess I wasnt to far off
Crap, this review made me love you again. I was getting tired of the montages in the other video, but having to come out in the camera and explain why, I see now.
Hahaha, wow, this made my day. Keep it up Spoony!
Best SWAT video by far. Awesome job, Spoony (even if was painful :P).
I know how you feel, I remember getting so frustrated on this one level in Super Monkey Ball on the Wii. I don’t know the exact number of tries because I didn’t start keeping track until a couple of days of pain, but when I did start counting, it exceeded 300; now that’s pain @_@
OK, Razer deathadder, logitech quick-cam pro 9000, logitech g15, samson(?) microphone but a tiny pc monitor?
On the bathroom problem you mentioned during the video: Use door explosives, even if the doors are not locked. The door explosive kills/stuns everyone who is to close and as an added bonus works pretty much like a flashbang.
The mission is a bitch, ’nuff said. But as for the length, I think the final 2 levels of the expansion (the metro station and the warehouse) are actually longer, not sure if you have The Sketchkov (or whatever they are called) Syndicate or not though ;)
Fancy looking computer there, Spoony.
I’m also gonna say…46?
I was close :
I was close :\
ObieWan will join forces with the SpoonyOne and upgrade the intelligence quotient of his party to that of a lesser trained monkey if he’d like. And I swear I’ll keep the “Your in my way, sir.” banter to no more than two. What languages do you know these days Spoony =P?
*winces* I would’ve started kicking things after I got into double figures. You got way more tenacity than me, I’m super impressed. And come the revolution, I now know where to hide. Useful :)
I guessed 28 tries. I was WAY off. Did you ever try all nonlethal takedowns?
Just saying, crouching helps with the terribad accuracy.
I hated this level too, not only because it was ridiculous hard, the first Part drived me nuts. I think it is realistic that the alarm goes on and such, but isn’t it turned off as soon the Police arrives? God this was painful.
I think I was lucky too. I had 12 or 13 tries to get through, I still do not know I did it and I will never find out, because I WLL NEVER PLAY THIS LEVEL AGAIN.
Dang Spoony I had it on 20-30 tries, not 59. Thanks for the tip, hide in the bathrooms
Well Spooney I will be pawing more than you on this game but the reason is that I begun to play it once more but all of guys are using non-lethal weapons. I got through 5 missions now and it was not easy and the hard time is about to begin. I like this game. It gives me hard time to finish it but I may arrest all of those Fuckers not kill them.
I always use nonlethal weaponry, find it a lot easier since ya can mostly fire and forget. And I also remember all those quits you had to do cause of wounded legs :( This level was designed to piss us off!
Ah, the level that broke me…:(
miss your old room man :(
I feel like there’s a resurgence and new energy with The Spoony Experiment since your move and new set-up (having stuff that works probably helps). Keep it up. ^_^
It took you 53 times, and a banana
That’s a Razer mouse! Excellent taste.
Maybe someone has already said this, but the way to take care of the pricks hiding in the bathroom is to have someone blow the door using the C2. The instant the door goes you should have your gun pointed at where you saw the perp using that wand thingie and just shout out to get down. Almost all of the time, he’ll throw his hands up and surrender, but if he doesn’t immediately do so, break out your taser and zap his ass.
Also, for the guy who hides in the closet on the sixth floor farthest to the left (the one across from the vending room) have your guys stack up on the construction door down the hall, position yourself to the left of the door, open it and toss in a flashbang (or a CS grenade). Nine times out of ten, that will stun the guy long enough for you to get in there and tase him so he doesn’t gat you.
“Fuck you guys, too!”
And now I know that they shoot back.
I guessed around 35 or 50 attempts. I guess I was kind of close to 59 attempts. Man, what a level. I’m sure the next level should be should what easier if you don’t have to deal with a time limit as well as those frustrating bad guys.
HAha “Fuck this LEVEL, WHOOAH!!!” at the end killed me xD
it took 59 attempts
LOl at “fuck you guys” and the guy who faked surrender
I’ve been asking what stage was this footage from now I finally know
So who died on you the most sponney? Reynolds?Girard?Fields or Jackson?
Hmm, a Logitech G15 and Razer Deathadder. Looks just like my desk.
Anyway, this level was where I quit playing SWAT 4. The game was fun for a bit but this level was just bullshit.
Just a suggestion, but instead of blowing the hotel room doors with C2, you should have picked the locks. They can hear the breach with the C2 or shotgun and are able to get ready. If you picked the lock it would have been quieter, and then you could have put a door wedge on the bathroom door and use the optiwand to see if they were standing near the door, and if they were used C2 to knock them out or stun them.
If they were too far from the door you could tell your team to move the bedroom area of the room, hug the wall, open the door while still covered by the wall and fall back around the corner and let your team deal with the guy in the bathroom as he comes out, and if he bunkered down in there throw in a grenade then taze him a few times.
Hell I bet if you stuck a Refrigerator in your bathroom you’d be able to survive a nuclear attack.
I love your new camera! I love this video too! Best – most epic – so far!
“Fuck you guys too!”
Lol, that shout out reminds me in other games (brothers in arms)
..It’s established that THEY were in MY way, sir.
I had you penned down for 68 tries; goess i didn’t give you enough credit spoony.
I’m still on this f***ing mission. I find that a C4 blast to open the bathrooms works because it disorientates them enough to take them down.
Attempt 49 is my favorite. I also love this format….I would love to see Spoony going in front of the camera every time proir to each Lets Play. This would make it easier…If the last levels get easy for Spoony, He could do this to reduce time..Just talk about the level up to a certain point…Then show you playing it from a point till the end of the level. This can save countless hours of filming. Also, Loving the new setup and camera now….It is so awesome.
47 times :D
If there are 4 SWAT officers and 16 suspects on this level, wouldn’t that make 4-to-1 odds?
I found that the paintball gun is the most effective since you can fire indiscriminately fire at anything that moves, even your own team if the urge arises…
my thoughts are the same, i am also thinking its 4-to-1.
anyways, awsome vid spoony!!
My guess is 38 times.
And if ti’s time, then 12 hours and 15 minutes! yeah!
Well spoon, another awesome SWAT4 review.
Though I have to say that I managed to beat this level on first time.
Maybe because I started with top floor first, and I kinda use wedges A LOT.
7 in one mission is bare minimum (3 on me with wand, pepper/in datadisk ammo belt; every one team member gets another wedge).
So yeah, if you go first to top floor (if you of course start from staircase, not from elevator), you can have all men for the bottom floor and and have full force for bathroom (plus, I don’t C4 room door, I do C4 bathroom).
Well good luck with another reviews, I do think you will have the “You’re in my way, sir” before even mission start, ahahaha (during the freeze time).
you fucker you ran right in front of me!!!!
i guessed 25
Attempt 22 had to be my favourite!
“OOOooooh, that was good!”
Damn, you certainly when through hell and back on that mission Spoony!
I had you pegged down for about 62 tries, but damn I didn’t think it would take that long to tackle the mission.
I don’t know if you do it to entertain us spoony, but the thing about you aiming is getitng pretty old.. pretty quick, just get a pistol and turn on slow walking ( don’t run ), and the aim will be quite good.
@ 121 and 123
There’s 5 SWAT officers: Spoony and 4 AI characters. It comes out to a little over 3 to 1.
Nice camera quality
“Ooooooh! That was good!”
“YOU FOOL! I mean…ME FOOL!”
“OH you stupid fuck! You ran in front of my assault riffle…AGAIN!”
I started this video out thinking I wouldn’t like it due to it being a long musical montage, but I had no idea that hilarity would ensue. Noah, you are the bomb *BOOM* YOU FOOLS!
Wow, you have a lot of patience. I would have droped it after the 10th time.
talk about that this levels shit bricks Spoony
This is by far the hardest fucking level of the entire game. I remember whenever I got lucky enough to complete it I was like one point off from accomplishing it. I really feel your frustration on this one. I found it easier to start off in the stairs instead of the elevator. I stopped playing this game because I got sick of it. Same ol’ bs lol.
I laughed my ass off Spoony.
The fake surrender then… BOOM… Headshot on you… The only thing you said…
“That’s nice… Really nice…”
I’m going to say, in all, 72 attempts to completion.
This is one out of only 2 levels that actually made me resort to the pepper-ball gun. Although the guy in the bathroom never gave me any trouble. Just pick the lock on the room door, creep in, and place a charge on the bathroom door.
Even though the level took me about as many tries, it’s still so unbelievable it could be that fucking hard, so I guessed 27 xP
I came pretty close. I was thinking 63.
I think we’ve all been to that level of anger at one point in time, or another, right?
Nice job, Spoony.
…………oops, I posted my comments on the wrong video, this is the correct one.
Spoony, this is more than dedication and persistence . This is another form of masochism, consider what this might do to your long term mental health.
You are very entertaining however you might snap and lose the ability to distinguish between game world and reality and I would also lose out on some rare and satisfying free entertainment.
You deserve some good Whiskey and a good night out after that ordeal.
Find a club that plays hard house music and have a relaxed atmosphere, much more healthy than virtual homicide.
another classic spoony great job!
First time posting. Just wanted to say thank you and well done for bringing out new content consistantly and at a good quality. O and im really happy for you that you managed to sort all your troubles out. Keep up the great work. Awesome vid :)
my first guess was 24 then my second 58 and my brother guessed 60
Who’s in the way now bitches.
Can’t say much that hasn’t already been said, but…..DAMN. Also, are your team members made of paper or something? It seems like one accidental friendly fire shot and they’re dead. Your team on “Star Trek Voyager: Elite Force” can take a LOT more damage than that (usually several direct hits with a medium-duty weapon). It’s a good thing, too, because on the higher difficulties they are *always* running in front of your weapons. (Not a good thing when you’re snap-aiming with a hand-held photon torpedo launcher.) And, of course, as Linkara will tell you, you *still* get the “Your in my way, sir.” crap form them. Does Starfleet follow the SWAT handbook or something?
Jesus Christ man, I thought 20 tries at the absolute maximum….
It took me….probably…12 tries at the most. I was lucky enough that the guys stayed in the bathroom and I used C2 on the door which either incapacitated them, stunned them enough to taser them, or it would just outright kill them if they were right in front of the door.
Get ready, the next mission isn’t any easier.
I also find it funny that most of the guides I looked at mention the Diamond Center mission as being the hardest. I personally thought this was the hardest mission.
Dayum those guys were slick. “Okay, I surrender- HAH FUCK YOU.”
I lol’d, srsly!
hehehe… I have to agree with 147, it shouldn’t have been THIS hard for you to get though. I found this was by far and away the hardest mission. I don’t consider myself a gamer, like, at all, since I am usually TERRIBLE at them no mater what the genre, however I found all the missions except this one pretty easy really and this one really only took me 12 – 23 tries. For the guy in the restroom… never had a problem, I would just go in tell my teammates to go stand in the back corner of the room, open the door from the side so that he couldn’t see me, yell at him to get down, then he would come out to see who said that, and I would wail on him with the pepper gun!!!!
At first I thought you were just being modest. I guessed 16.
Number eleven with near half the video left… O.K., maybe 32
Yep, that about does it.
Thanks for the explanation in the beginning. Really helped make the rest funnier.
Swat 4 is back! Huzzah! My guess was 50.
I would bet that not all of those friendly fire kills were accidental . . .
what makes this so funny is how bad your strategy is sometimes, often i assume its because your frustrated. It was really funny tho. Sorry but I didnt guess how many times you’d die. Good video, as always.
Your dedication to our entertainment is just remarkable. If it was me I would of quit that game a long time ago. And with that I say thank you lol
its so strange, I completed this level at my 3rd try but the level with the cultists in the apartment building I at least retried 30 times.
my strategy was that unless it was a hotel room then I would just gas the entire place, I found it the easiest way to deal with all the suspects, and those who wore gasmasks or was not just effected I shot the with the paintball gun.
as for the guys in the bathrooms, I found that the easiest way was to order your guy to stay out and go into the hotel room quietly and by yourself. this way you could use the wand to see if there was a guy in the bathroom if it was, then you just use your OWN C4 to blow the door and thereby stun him.
anyway great show and I love the new place, it looks so fresh and bright in contrast with the old place.
also I would love to see you playing swat 4 LAN co-up with some of your friends, Swat 4 is one of the best LAN games that I have ever played.
“Fuck you guys too!” lol. its good to be a gamer sometimes. it had to be annoying but thanks for sticking with that level. i dont know its just all the random cursing in frustration helped brighten up my day.
I hated this level too. I found it easier to skip the middle floor and go straight to the top as that area was much harder and this way you get a full team for it. Then just mop up the lower floor.
I think a lot of your problems came form using the M4 =P it’s so slow to close the reticle that it’s useless in close quarters fighting a lot of the time. Better off with the bean-bag shotty or MP5 or something.
As for the toilet guys, did you not think of opening the door from the hinge side? That way you’re positioned in cover behind the door once it opens and you can bounce a flash/gas grenade into the bathroom.
i appreciate your many tries and the amount of work and nerves you put into the videos just for your fans, but still i didn’t like this one as much as others.
then again, of course if the video is about 25 minutes long and you don’t talk as much ( because it’s not one of your first tries ) it wouldn’t be as funny.
i liked other levels more, but i am sure it was frustrating and you just wanted to get rid of this stage ( like you said at the end of the video, kind of )
i hope that other levels won’t be as much of a trouble for you.
The frustration of playing through a level time after time is what finally made me stop playing SWAT 4. As much as I like the setup, it’s an unforgiving headache of a game that tortured me for days even though it’s my fault for not stopping. This mission was definitely one of the more frustrating ones, though the guys holed up in the bathrooms didn’t give me as much grief as they did for you. I found that if you throw a smoke grenade in front of the door and order your guys out of the way, you can open the door from the side and let the smoke subdue the guy inside. Once you hear coughing, it’s time to cuff him. Also, don’t forget that you can order your guys to throw ‘nades at the spot you’re pointing to if you search through the command dialog. This is really helpful in large rooms where throwing a ‘nade from the door just won’t cut it.
Hopefully, the following tips can be a bit helpful to you in your future playthroughs of this sadistic game:
1) Use the non-lethal shotgun with a taser as a secondary for yourself and your team.
This is a must since it’s almost always preferable to shoot first THEN ask them to surrender. Most guys take only one shot, but for those stubborn few, the taser works wonders. The great thing is, you can shoot a guy once, then move on to the next one since the first gets stunned for several seconds. But more importantly…
2) ALWAYS walk when you’re shooting.
Your target box is huge when you’re in running mode and it takes way too long to grow smaller. On the other hand, if you toggle the walking mode the target box stays small enough that even if you’re moving, it’s still pretty accurate. This helps immensely whether you’re using lethal or non-lethal weapons as you’re usually not given the option of missing in a firefight.
P.S. I was guessing around 20-30 tries. I don’t even want to know how many it took me.
I too would have quit playing after 15-20 tries, I don’t blame Spoony for delaying the recording as some of those deaths just crossed a level of bullshit that would have had me putting the game at the bottom of the pile and not letting it see daylight for quite some time.
The guys that ‘surrender’ only to pop up and shoot you in the face frustrated me just watching it, lol, if it wasn’t for failing the mission on “unlawful use of deadly force”, I would just shoot up the whole place Rainbow 6 style, you can’t trust ‘em (or your entire squad apparently ¬.¬)
146, Kamen Rider Gumo>
It’s even worse in datadisk. I was in a mission, trying to kill one last guy with a HANDGUN, I had night vision, and suddenly, my team member appeared and I hit him with ONE bullet. Of course they all completely killed me and it was over. ONE GUY from end…. gah I raged….
I was guessing 38 about half way in too it. But the ending is priceless. I like the other way better but I guess this game did not play nice. So how many levels are left?
Also I really hate that particular gun for much of everything. I always liked pretty much any other gun except the M4 simply because it seemingly never hits center. Ever. When I played I made it a rule to aim down and right of where the bullets were going to hit simply because the cone was so messed up on that weapon. The 45 was leaps and bounds superior to it.
If you decide to do maybe a second playthrough, even if it’s off-camera, I recommend trying some of the mods that add new guns, fix current guns, or just make it where you don’t have to yell ‘STOP, POLICE, DON’T MOVE’ before you blow someone’s head in.
Damn it. I had money on 65 attempts. Meh, close enough.
Wow I thought 30 times, after that I would have used the game as a target. My hat goes off to you to go though that much dieing…. also FREAKING funny outro comments
I guessed 100.
I guess my lack of faith in your abilities is too extreme D:
I found this very entertaining because Spoony sounds just like my brother when he’s frustrated with a video game.
Wow, that mission looked brutal. And Jesus, the accuracy of those guys. I never knew that self-trained militia wackos shot like the offspring of Annie Oakley and John Preston, being able to shoot 1/4 of your exposed head in roughly the time it takes to line up the iron sights.
And I never get tired of the whole “leathal force” thing. “There may be five minutes left before an entire building gets blown to pieces, but I’ll be DAMNED if I let Officer Spoony shoot someone before he’s confirmed that they’re resisting. Even if they’re in body armor, pointing an AK right at his head, and shouting ‘Death to the SWAT people!’ .”
49 was my favourite death. “Fuck you guys too!”
My first guess was 29… then you passed that. My next was 35, then 45, then 64. Close enough for me. Those enemies were simply god shooters, or they have an auto-target hack.
Oh man I was pulling my hair out with this one! Time limit, three floors and a ton of sneaky places to hide. Plus they shoot through cover.
The bathroom guys, I found a chink in their armor: Breaching charges. You heard right. Set a charge on the bathroom door, whether it’s locked or not. A wooden door exploding in his face WILL stun him.
For added fun with guys you really hate, you can order you men to rough them up, even after their handcuffed! Point at them, open the order menu, and select Deploy>Pepperspray/Taser/Pepperball/LTL Shotgun. And your guy will hit them, even if their cuffed.
Greatest SWAT review EVER
Man that was beyond funny xD Im dreading this level now though :(
Wow, I guess it took all day didn’t it Spoony?
If you don’t examine the bomb, I believe you can postpone the count down allowing you to finish everything first.
Message to Spoony,
I started playing this game after I saw the first review of SWAT4. I haven’t beaten the last level either and even if I make it to the top floor with all my men they still manage to get themselves killed. A good way to clear the first floor bathrooms is to lock pick the hotel room and than have one of your men place C4 on the bathroom door. Since you entered the room silently the terrorist won’t just jump out of the bathroom. The C4 9 times out of 10 will either kill or stun those bastards and since you have your men place the C4 you won’t be penalized for the kill.
Well done, sir, well done.
72 or 84. I’m feeling good about those numbers.
Damn, I was off. I said 47.
See, this is why I don’t play this game. I would lose every mission due to shooting everyone, AND those other SWAT morons who enjoy walking right in front of a gun firing. FOOLS!

used these tips next time spooney
It doesn’t look so hard when he does this level why didn’t you just do what he did?
Jeez, kudos for having the patience to go through all that. I don’t even want to think about how long that must have taken…
btw my estimate was 18…
You have my sympathies and my hatred Spoony, because of you I had to re-install and play EVERY keyboard breaking, curse word inventing mission AND, because I’m a masochist, some realism enhancing mods.
As you’ve no doubt heard C4 is your best friend in small rooms, use the door wedges to channel bad guys and great LP as always.
With the guy in the bathroom open the outside door and the bathroom door with the lockpick then crouch down and then open the door, he will ALWAYS shoot over your head leaving you to taser him.
Also use the gun with the suppessor on it, since it is more accurate and the burst shots helps prevent point duductions from killing people.
P.S great video, I really love your swat 4 videos, they are so funny, I actally brought swat4 after watching them.
P.S.S I really hated this level as well. And what happened to the hospital level? Why havent you done a video on that?
“You fool! I mean… me fool!”
Well Spoony, guess this means you can’t chide the other officers for blinding you with their grenades. You can, however, still ream them when they say “You’re in my way, sir.”
Usually when I make guesses about this sort of thing, I try to make them what seem like just absurdly high numbers. My first guess was 47 attempts, but when 50 flashed, I thought wow, I guess I’ll up that to 69 and see if he breaks 70. This one looks like it was one of those levels sent directly from hell. Great vid, oh mighty Spoony.
Spoony Spoony Spoony, I am disappoint, you forgot the easiest trick in the book for bathrooms and other tiny rooms: C4. Just stick some C4 on the door and blow it open, it will stun the guy on the other side and give you time to taze him.
Still, even with that trick it doesn’t help in the upper floor, this level really was a bitch. I think it took me 20-something tries to beat it, I can’t remember exactly. Felt bad, man.
Barricade yourself in the bathroom? Makes sense; it’s how my dad survived Hurricane Andrew.
I would agree with Sniktbub, you put the C4 on the door and just blow it up. If it doesn’t stun the enemy, it’ll kill him, and you don’t get penalized for that.
Plus, I would recommend you start using the SMG, since they’re easier to use… though it would make your vids less comical, lol.
Anyways, good job and I’ll be waiting for your next SWAT4 vid.
my first guess was 26, which i thought was going to be right until you skipped to 22 so early, but damn, i think if you combine the amounts of time ive died in fable 2, resident evil 5, and fallout 3, its not that much
im saying this before watching the rest. about 27-28
Were the game developers HIGH when they designed the weapon accuracy in this game? Is there any possible way to increase your accuracy? Is there any way to look down the irons? Is this game absolute proof that the developers HATE their fans & would like them to suffer as much as possible? Tune in next week to find out! Actually, no. You’ll never find out. Because SWAT 4 hates you.
At first i thought i was going to see a swat 4 episode without a “your in my spot sir…” gag but no spoony my man put it in there right at the end. and btw i tottally got my picture with the otakon spoony WOOT
Awesome video spoony, you deserved that victory yell.
Wow, was I way off. I guessed you’d take 17 tries to get through…never mind fifty-freaking-nine. (I can’t say anything about that, though. It took me right around the same number to finish that warzone known as a level) I swear, that level was a lot harder than the last level of SWAT 4, although the last one took much longer. I remember spending like 20-30 minutes on a single run, then dying at the last room. That’s another one of those failures that makes you rage-quit for two weeks. I was cracking up that whole montage, especially when your squad walked in front of you as you were shooting…that, and when you finally snapped and fired on your own team. XD
I’m honestly surprised you didn’t make a comment about the secondary entrance, the stairway between the two floors. Because whenever you start there, one of your teammates actually goes through three different “You’re in my way, sir” routines while you wait for TOC to overview the mission. I imagined you going completely enraged at that, but I guess you went with the first entrance.
Incidentally, my strategy was this: start out at the secondary entrance on the staircase, and wedge the door to the first of the two floors. The reason being that there are maybe 4-5 people on that floor, and that can easily be dispatched with a reduced team. Start out on the upper floor with a fresh team, and the mission becomes at least a bit easier. Also, you can actually disarm the first bomb without starting the timer – if you stand on the top stair (NOT on the landing), you can order one of your teammates to diffuse the first bomb, since the countdown doesn’t actually begin until you move up.
Fantastic review, Spoony. Hey, at least you finally got through the hardest mission in the game, right? The last one has more enemies, but they’re spread out over 12-18 different rooms.
I started out thinking 24, then I thought… nah… must be like 40+. Maaan.
The fiber optic makes the game a lot easier. C3 destroys enemies right behind doors. Also, you can just open the bathroom door from the side where the enemy can’t see you and nade the room. Get a lot of CS gas on your guys and order them to throw them around all the time. The G36 is more accurate than the M4.
My guess was 58, pretty close though.
Actually this level only looks hard, with a bit of luck i actually menaged to pass it on a first go. The one that made me wanna throw the keyboard through the window was that “concert level” with that giant devil head hanging above the stage. I think i died almost 30-40 times in that F* hall :P The game’s getting easy when you get used to it. Ouch… I just found a mail I was supoose to send you Spoony, back when you started playing SWAT. I just dump it here. It’s pretty useless by now since you just passed the game but why not.
“Just my few buck since i recently bought the game and played it through along with the Syndycate add on.
Never use anything else but gas-bombs, i guess you figured that one out, unless the enemy has gas mask. I would suggest flash bombs over this gumm ball grenade – I once took out 2 of my men and stunned myself with it while the bad guys unloaded a bucket of lead into my ass. I also found usefull giving one of the guys an optic wand or a pepper spray. it just speeds the things up. You can always order them to check some door and if they DO see somebody then you’re sure there is someone there but when they don’t I would doublecheck to be sure. Also giving them an order “move to a point” rather than “enter and clear ” provides that they enter a room and stand in one spot not run like crazy all over the place. It’s sometime more usefull when you’re in a large area and you don’t wan’t to spread all over the place. As with weapons there’s really not much diffrence. It’s important to get the right ammunition depending on what enemy you face: with or without the anti-bullet vest. I must say the M4A1 is not very usefull becouse there’s really not much situations when you need to shot somebody from a distance or supress fire. Most of the missions is busting into tight spaces and quick kills if necessary. And 9mm is more usefull for that job.The same with the sniper rifle. I tried to give them to squad members but they didn’t seem to be more accurate than with other weapons and they were less deadly in clearing the rooms. Also i suggest not to give non-lethal wapons like the Teaser to any of your men. I once ordered them to storm the room suddenly realizing that they all carry teasers, i don’t know why they suddenly felt to be so worried about the terrorist health but they got their asses handed to them. And since there’s no minus points for your men killcount there’s just no point in doing that. it just makes them less letal, and gives you more guys to cuff. Also never use the ultra red – it seemed like it would be fun, you know like the real SWAT – cut of the power cable and go stealth style BUT you can’t see shit in those helmets. Just stick to your flashlight.
I think that’s all for now. I hope you have the Strechkovs Syndycate add on – it’s also fun to play and i loove to watch your reviews. there are few new things like the Cobra teaser with two shots, Yea!. Thank god for that. The game also have a new feature : freezing your orders. Like you order something and freeze it to until you push space. It’s suppose to add some tactical options but I really never found it to be very usefull. I done that few times just for fun. You know: two entrance, two teams on my mark go! But i really don’t see any diffrence with that and busting all at once through one door”
It’s really weird watching now, I have the same keyboard mouse and speakers which im seeing copies of in front of me and in the screen
Holy sht! I guessed 60! You managed to save yourself from shame by 1 attempt, Spoony!
holy crap! you poor poor bastered :p
Nice going with all the deaths Spoony :P. Here are some hints for you: For the bathrooms you can use breach charge on the door instead of just opening it (unless the terrorists decides to open it, then I guess you should just shoot him). It won’t give you any minus points if by some miracle it manages to kill the guy on the other side and at the same time it works like a flashbang to some point. Also remember your flashlight will get more terrorists to surrender, since that makes you seem more threatening or whatever…
That was very funny, I remember this level, it was hard, but just wait for the hospital and research laboratory levels, these are rage-uninstall levels.
lol Beverly hill 2 reference I love that song . I going guess 50 times
There was that one guy in the bathroom that spawned there every time I palyed it. Everyone else moved, but not him, he was that real intelligent man that cursed in the bathroom cuz we all know that’s gonna scare SWAT away. I tased him consistently, every round, god that got annoying.
Are you going to review the expansion pack? It’s a lot more fun because your nonlethal weapons get ridiculous in range and… well. a ballistic racketball gun? Kick ass.
Oh my god, 59 tries. You got epic endurance for surviving that.
Actually as some have said in the comments, breach charge the bathroom will stun the guy since he’s so close to the door, but that thing doesn’t always works like the damn stinger and flashbang. As long as they’re right in the front of the door it will work, but that kind of situation is so rare I believe it was designed solely for the bathroom guy…
I did finished this level on my 12th try but it was with 52 points on Regular, so it was on the borderline. No hellish way I will do it again. The level is like based on luck that your guys actually bag the guys before they get killed. Without them its a sure death sentence, although my 12th try was me alone but I was able to sting them with a grenade and thank the god of gaming it worked.
For the other levels I am a bit further ahead of you but that one seemed the hardest. Maybe it’s just me.
Anyway, keep surviving this horror.
I actually managed to beat this mission in under 10 tries on hard. Of course, I died quite a lot and finished the mission with (I think) one guy left. I almost beat it once but I didn’t have anyone left and had a hurt leg, so I couldn’t get to the last bomb fast enough.
The best way to clear those bathroom guys? C2. ;)
I think you’re playing the game wrong.
First off I notice you keep running by default. I know the AI do it aswell, but notice how easilly they get killed.
In case of shotguns you can use them just fine if you walk.
And shotguns with buckshot tend to wound enemies a lot rather than kill, which I find weird, but still a bonus IMO.
Second I would not stick to assault rifles. MP5 allows more mobillity and gets rounds on target faster.
Thirdly, you can order your team to watch the door from the side and open it from the side aswell, then throw in grenade by bouncing it off the wall.
Opening the door from its side is the preffered method. ;)
I have discovered that stinger grenades have better range and effect than FB. I think in case of FB the enemy needs to face it for maximal effect.
Gas grenades allways take time to work and they don’t really work that well IMO. The clouds are another flaw.
Using beambag shotgun or paintball marker is ridiculously efficient. It is retarded, but you can finish the level on elite with the marker since it disables them in one hit. You do not need to shout at people before using beambag or pepper. And you can use preemptive shots.
Shotgun will stop them dead in their tracks, with marker they will try to run.
Overall, I finished the level on Hard with 10 tries, maybe 15. It’s good to start at the staircase, put wedge under the door and then go adisarm the bombs first.
Oh boy it’s another SWAT 4, time to get a pizza and beer while this loads. :3
For the bathroom guys, I just used the breaching charge to stun them, then I would rush in an tazer them. That way I was able to keep my team alive for the second floor, where they usually got slaughtered. I think by the time I finished the level I was the only SWAT member still alive, with six or seven bullet holes in my body. Strange how your teammates are always able to shrug off their injuries in time for the next mission.
The worst levels, though, are probably the hospital and research center. Both have large numbers of well-armed suspects and plenty of blind corners and places to hide.
And if that were not demoralizing enough, someone has done a speedrun on Elite difficulty, obtaining a full 100 points in each mission: http://www.youtube.com/user/jabbajew
I’m going to guess… 34 times.
Wow, 59 tries. I can’t believe you stuck with it through all of that.
I hated this level. I bought this game and its add-on the Stetchkov Syndicate a week or two ago on Spoony’s recommendation. It’s a great game haha. This level took me a few tries but I finally got lucky.
Breach charges on the bathroom doors, yup.
I hope you review the expansion, too! I *love* using the grenade launcher to whack people in the face.
I don’t even load it with the baton rounds, I just bean people with tear gas.
I would’ve guessed 26. But holy fuckin’ shit I was BADLY wrong.
I hope we’re going to see SWAT 4 ep.13 soon.
Is that a Razer Lachesis you are using or a Deathadder?
Haha, you turned on your own men.
I always do that in games like this if I can’t complete it,
Why dont you just shoot the guns out of their hands and try to peek in the corners once in a while, besides if the suspect raises the gun at you, just shoot him, its not considered use of deadly force.
I love to see these mission reviews so much. Very very entertaining!
This is the only mission so far I managed to accomplish in 1 try!
Of course I had your video to warn me about certain things :)
Although in my case the suspects just walked out of the bathrooms by themselves, or the door was already open.
In my case I took the stairs entry, and headed up immediately. So no problem with the top floor and the bombs.
Perhaps these tips will help you with the next mission, and the expansion missions…. I hope.
1) Try to crouch more. Especially when you expect to see a suspect soon. It will help your aim a lot. When you set your gun to semi or burst, you will get almost pixel perfect aim.
2) Try breaching doors when there is an enemy behind it. It might stun him. Especially helpful for bathrooms.
3) Don’t forget to change to FMJ ammunition if the suspects wear armor.
I guessed 23… Wow, I wasn’t even halfway right >.<
“Die! Die! DIE! F**k you guys, too!”
I was a moron and guessed 17.
Lol my original guess before the montage started was 45 as a joke, lol. I have also noticed when your playing games frustrated you play the same way as me :D
My first guess was 36, but then I changed my mind and though “No, there is no way spoony is that bad at video games.” and changed my guess to 16.
I was wrong. Jesus, spoony, that level isn’t that hard. Was your girlfriend testing out her strap on on your ass while you were flailing at the keyboard? Honestly, that’s the only way I could make sense of you failing this mission 58 times.
I think you need to put down the controller and seek help. You clearly have “special” issues.
There actually is an “aim” button in the settings, just replace your right-click command with “aim” and that would improve your accuracy a _lot_.
attempt 22 was hilarious
Ok, I appologise for my previous outburst of “you noob”. :D
I was first playing the game before the patches and now that I have it patched and up to date I notice the AI temmates stopped listening to orders.
Whenever they see a civilian or anything they just stop where they stand and keep yalling at him.
The single most irritating factor is the rules of engagement for AI teammates. They treat the beambag weapons the same as normal firearms – that is, they only return fire 99% times. :(
Sadly the programmers didn’t seem to care to hire a consultant. :(
Good luck on Hospital, I say 100 tries. :<
Hehe great video, there’s something about a raging grown man that’s hilarious.
Attempt #49 was the best!
I think this mission should have special rules, like no penalty when you shoot the **** out of the enemies the second you see them, after all they are going to explode a whole hotel or the top levels of it or whatever. And I think the AI should be kind enough to NOT hide in the bathroom or a way to shoot trough the bathroom wall.
I guessed that you died 65 times and I see I wasn’t far off. But I’m happy that you haven’t given up yet and that you acually recorded all the time trough. I miss the live recording but I understand its impossible to do that, but a live recording of the first few attemt should be nice, but as the first try was 35 seconds I still understand why its so impossible to do it…
I should get this game and play it for myself again, last time I had it (pirated) I only played mutiplayer.
Haha Nice I surprisingly wish i had this game.. Does it run on vista???
#228 I was pretty lucky with hospital, as with the bank. It took me like 3 or so serious tries (any try in which you get killed or shot in the leg before the 3 minute mark doesn’t count).
It is hard though, between the glass and the inability to use the mirror in doors.
LAO CHE! Awesome video (this level actually made me uninstall the game) but all I could really think about when watching is that shirt of yours. Lao Che is an awesome Polish band and me being Polish I have to ask whether you like the band or this is just some random shirt.
ok spoony to take the guys ouy in the bathroom and in the corners try this…… use a taser!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Beanbag shotguns, I cannot stress this enough. If your allies have them they will actually fire WITHOUT having to get shot at first. Plus you can just unload on everything and not worry about civvies.
The thing I hate about the montage videos is that I am no longer able to see you go through the level and look at all the environments and characters and whatnot. That’s what I like about Let’s Plays because you get to explore new worlds with the…Let’s Player, and boy do I like watching people interacting with video games while listening to (er, watching) a good story go by. I don’t want to watch a blooper reel–I want to see you *play* the game!
But now I understand why you do that. ^^ I just hope to see again someday the actual playthroughs of you going through the level instead of dying montages, even if you just put up the last playthrough where you finally just beat the level. Heck, I enjoyed watching you die a lot in the earlier ones, but I can see how that would balloon the Let’s Play by several hours!
HAhahahahahaha! I was just waiting for the moment you would get fed up with your team and start killing them all!
I know how you feel about that one level/challenge that just kills your soul and makes you a mindless zombie. Hope the rest aren’t even a tenth as hard.
Why didn’t you use the shotgun?
Well, I started playing SWAT 4 like 2 months ago (after watching your SWAT vids), and I got through all the levels in about two weeks… til THIS MISSION.
Nearly everything that happened to me I now relived in your attempts. Including refusing to play this mission again. But I… am still refusing it, damn.
Because I mostly have only 2-3 officers left after the first floor, and then die in the second floor, I began to start in the stairway (with one officer immediately shouting “you’re in my way, sir”… ALWAYS) instead of the elevator and first try to clear the second floor first and defuse all the bombs. Then, with 1-2 officers… I die in the first floor, respectively be shot out of a bathroom or I die in one of the last two rooms.
Conclusion: Still have not cleared the misson yet.
It took me 29 tries to beat this level, i got fucking lucky
I guessed 54 tries. I was SO CLOSE! If I did five more, FIVE MORE! DX
Wait…what would I win?
Perhaps it would be a good idea to use Non-lethal weapons for once? That would make for a interesting change of peace. I think that’s how I beated this level, I loaded myself with the non lethal shotgun but let my guys go at it with machine guns, that way I wouldn’t get myself penalized for unauthorized use of force.
I’ve found that the side arms tend to work better than the assualt rifles as far as accuracy and walking it takes longer but better aim
For the bathroom guys, I found it useful to pick the lock to the hotel room, then plant C2 on the bathroom door. By keeping it quiet, they don’t rush out of the bathroom, and when the C2 goes off, it stuns them much like a flashbang grenade. :)
You’re in my way, sir.
I mean, I guessed 54, which was shockingly close. Nasty level. Nice level design, though – really does look like a construction site.
That said, what kind of hotel under construction has perfectly decorated floors one floor below one under construction?
I guessed 72, and that ended up being your score. Do I get a special prize?
The ending is the best. “YES FUCK THIS LEVEL WOOOOOOOOOOO!”
spooney your forgetting the fact that using door breaches with guys next to the door stuns them i had to use it alot for this lvl
Woah i was waay of i guessed 30. :P
59!!!! I would of throw the controller, PC and game out the window and then repeatly stamped on it by then!! Congrats on hanging on in there!
59?! O.O I would have thrown the controller down in defeat and not touch the damned thing for the rest of eternity. Or I would have just shot all my “comrades” out of pure rage. ._.
My first guess was 50. I wasn’t too far off the mark.
I just got SWAT 4 (after watching all of these videos multiple times each), and I’ve got a bit of a problem. My squad mates rarely say anything. Like, at all. In these videos, they tell Spoony that he’s in their spot if he’s in the same room as them, but I can’t seem to get them to say it even if I’m directly in their way. I’m a complete novice to PC gaming, so maybe I’m just dumb and can’t figure out how to get them to talk, but can someone enlighten me?
whats the name of the Bob Seger song he uses in the montage?
I know many time you died in this game TOO FUCKING MUCH!!! Good thing idon’t play SWAT 4 you’re i’ll be cussing like you here’s my edvise say”I AM A MAN” and punch somting that hlep meAND no i’m not linkara! seeya spoony
Wow, thanks for taking the time to make this vid for us Spoony. Very entertaining.
Damn, 59 attempts on one level! I knew I should have guessed 60, but I said 50. Still, congrats for finally beating that level. I would’ve probably gotten so angry that I would destroy the disc or just give up.
I guessed spot on, as soon as you said write down on a little piece of paper, i said … 59… Must’ve been a very lucky guess, I mean, what are the odds?
At Alex: You may have downloaded a version of the game that has the voices cut, I have done so before.
one thing i notice is that he has trouble getting his accuracy.
does SWAT 4 reduce recoil when you crouch? most realism-like shooting games i played make you more accurate when you crouch.
even Grand Theft Auto makes you more accurate when you crouch.
You really had a problem at this mission ?
I took the colt and everything went right. (sure, three of my guys died) but in one only try we did it.
Watch out, this ain’t the toughess mission. But it’s comming…
And the best way to stop the gunman in the bathroom is with breaching or C2 (C2 is more recomanded)
The best way to take care of the bathroom guy is to just pick the lock of the outside doors, throw nothing in, and then breach the bathroom. C2 should usually make him submit right off the bat, but if not you just taze him and it’s over. I have to agree still, though, this is a very brutal level. It took me numerous tries and numerous in-game sessions to get this one right. And one time I actually finished the level, only to realize that I got slapped for unauthorized use of deadly force THREE TIMES for bullshit reasons and just barely didn’t make the 50 point cut for passage on the normal difficulty. Talk about unfair.
Bob Seger – Shakedown (its not on the spoify though…) is the cool montage theme. :)
I know from past videos you don’t like the paintaball gun but I assure you it is so much easier
And the taser is best since usually they are right next to the door and you can kinda clip through the door with it. You can also scare them by shooting the door.
I think the biggest punch to the gut is that the second run was so close to being a win. The last guy killed him, and seconds before a SWAT ignored a man with a gun. Anyways, thanks for all your work Spoony!
i guessed 52…………………………..MAN!!!!!!!!!!
59!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THAT IS A SPICY MEATBALL!!!!!!!!
however that is NOTHING compared to ninja gaiden
Don’t have your guys standing by the door and open it standing by the wall. Problem solved.
I tell you that you have great patience, Spoony.
Honestly… I probably would have done similar in your position.
Oh, and, I had guessed 61…. That was pretty close, huh?
But, that’s just my own self-absorbed thought. Really, I applaud your efforts and praise your patience. And, yes, they were in your way, sir.
he died at least 21 times and just decided to move through the deaths in tens than in ones
SWAT4 is far easier if you squat during combat. You present a smaller target and have far better accuracy(if you still have your arms). Also, you could just always use C2 on the bathroom doors, as it does not count as an unauthorized kill. Lastly, anytime a bad guy points his gun at you or a hostage you can kill without penalty.
Hmmm, balls hard level, cheap ass enemy AI tatics, and shoddy team AI, I’m guessing 27
Damn… I just played this mission after a long break, and the very last guy killed me when i was switching to a teaser…
BTW, thanks so much for this video series. If it wasn’t for you I’d never try to play this awesome game,
Wow, so I was way off, but still my favorite part of all the swat videos is the commentary written when its over.
It safe to say THEY were in MY way sir! LMFAO
man i was wayyy off i guessed at 28 lol, you’ve certainly got more determination than me spoony well done :)
I guessed 72 xD…you said a lot, so i’ve went overboard xD
Whel I’ve passed this mission at my first atempt, with all my guys xD…lucky I guess
The guy in the bathroom, it was easy if we went trought the other room that connects with the room wuth that bathroom, then C2 on the door and no one gets hurt xP
LOL when 12 became 22. man, what a tough mission.
Wow, this may be one of history’s greatest examples of gaming patience.
I actually managed to get through this on my first try, in no small part due to the info you provided in the video, and also a fair amount of luck. With the bathrooms I learned (through guesswork based on the video), that the best method is to pick the door leading into the room, then C4 the bathroom. This works pretty well, though those guys are still absurdly annoying. I thought I went through a personal meatgrinder on the Auto Shop level where for some reason or another it took me more than 13 tries to beat it (every other level didn’t take more than 4). Damn, that’s some patience.
And, of course, GIVE US MORE. Please… these are the funniest current items on the site (this and Ripper). It’d be great if you went on and did the Stetchkov missions after you finished the vanilla game.
Attempt #12 I mean #22 was fucking hilarious, I could just sense the anger and venom in your voice when you said: “Oooooooh oooh that was good!”
Spoony one I agree with you on how hard this level was, but imagine trying to do it with paint ball guns and the bean bag shotty….I was throwing words left and right out, and I hated trying to get the guys in the bathroom and on the stairs.
That level was a repeated swift kick in the balls…I would have smashed the CD to pieces with a claw hammer after the thirtieth failed mission. What they needed to give you was a spare squad so you would have at least ten guys to absorb the bullets.The mission really needed air support in the form of two choppers with loundspeakers and miniguns to announce the surrender call and then strafe the crap out of the unfinished upper stories (because these loonies aren’t leaving.) After that, you could send in squad A while squad B makes certain that nobody escapes, or send in the second squad after the first is shot to bits. Even without the air support I still think you would need at least two extra guys because the militia members are damn good.
But then you would have twice as many people telling you “Your in my way sir” and you would probably end up killing your own team 85% of the time if you had two squads.
lol i guessed 26.. ehm
“But then you would have twice as many people telling you “Your in my way sir” and you would probably end up killing your own team 85% of the time if you had two squads.”
But you would be making the odds more even and I would tolerate the retard “You’re in my way, sir” SWAT officer a lot more if a level like that was a bit easier. To be honest I would rather let the militia blow themselves up then waste valuable specialized police…but nobody wants to go that route so give the SWAT guys all the help they can get.
When are we going to see the next one?
As much as more man power goes, honestly I don’t feel like blowing away a whole extra team of Tard Police just becuase they get in my way, it’s already bad enough they don’t see the guy in the corner or behind the garbage can, but I do get what you are saying about more man power.
Hey spoony Guess they have the bomb now, that old lady must have had connections.
Attempt #49 cracked me up:
“DIE! DIE! DIE YOU FUCKER!”
Then Spoony loses it and kills his SWAT team:
“FUCK YOU GUYS TOO!”
Great stuff Spoony. Hopefully we’ll see more “Let’s play” of SWAT 4. You made me pick up this game and learn about true frustration through failing a mission by 1 point due to unauthorized use of force…
I do hope we get to see some spoony Swat 4 expansion action.
I was hoping the same thing. I just finished it myself a couple of days ago. It’s not quite as long as the original game, but the levels are a bit harder I think.
They are extremely hard if you try to do the whole Use pepper ball guns and beanbag shotties I hate not being able to blast away with my magnum.
59? Dang, I guessed 53…
Anyways, I was wondering if tazing would have been a good strategy on the bathroom guys.
Very funny video! I have watched this at least ten times, heh.
Few tips though how to avoid “musical montages”:
1. Use german G36 instead of M4. Mostly because it has burst, while M4 only auto or semi. MP5 is also accurate and compact.
2. Crouch and lean. Don’t run around corners.
3. Use C2 for small rooms, like bathrooms. And pick the locks, if you want to get stealthy advantage.
4. Taser is really handy, when it comes to close combat and tight corners. When you see suspect camping behind obstacle, equip taser and surprise him. If you just shout, you have to wait for his reaction, which will probably cause your death. I mean they draw really fast.
5. Use optiwand for every door and even corners. It may take time but it will save your ass.
6. Open the doors from side.
7. Pointing the door and ordering “deploy cs/flash/sting” is useful, when you want team to throw grenade in, but stay in cover.
8. When suspects don’t have masks (they have in Red Library and DuPlessis), you really want to use gas. It is probably the most effective nade. Good range (fills the whole room) and the affect takes long.
9. Use sniper support. It is authorized.
are you planning on doing the expansion?
There’s an easy way to take-out thugs in bathrooms.
Step 1: Place a charge on the door yourself. Even if it’s unlocked.
Step 2: Get your team and your ass away from the door.
Step 3: Blow the door open.
Step 4: Use whatever means you prefer to assault the now-unprotected hostile. Grenades work wonders.
it would be cool play in online whit co-op
Try using the beanbags, you can fire them whenever you want, not wait until they shoot at you
hahaha… “FUCK YOU GUYS TOO”
I’m playing through this game and now I’m really not looking forward to this level. Great Lets Play though, keep it up.
Hmm, no offense but… Spoony, you really suck. My grandfather plays SWAT better than you.
Ok, that isn’t the easiest mission at all. It took my 2 tries, but still… 59? What the fuck man.
If you use C2 on the bathrooom door it will “incapacitate” the suspect without penalties.
omg, I saw your keyboard and looked in front of me and thought, “ok same keyboard”…
then I recognised your mouse and thought, “damn I have the same gear as you”
so I started looking what else you might have and oh shit you also have the same logitech webcam on your monitor ;)
love your stuff, keep it up :)
Love your SWAT 4 reviews, Spoony! Easily my favourite reviews of yours.
So, what are the chances of more? Is the game simply too infuriating?
I guess about 20 deaths but 59 is a lot more than I thought there would be. Thank god I never got the game.
spoony where are the rest of the missions?
Mt.Threshold and Medical Center? I guess they are too hard for Spoony. Will take at least 100 times for him to get through :)
You must have forgotten about the breaching charges Spoony… Great video nonetheless.
I really loved these review and i bought the game myself and i kinda liked swat4 its not like all the other shooters ive played good job spoony
Has spoony forgotten this series? I love this one, it is my second favorite of his lets plays, the first being phantasmagoria. It has been two months since a new one. Either way, it was still hilarious.
I wouldn’t keep playing either.
<rant value = “boring”>
While I love watching SpoonyRunning and gunning, in this game it's simply stupid. I know it's frustrating having to move sof*cking slow to keep your aim, but anyone who's tried it in real life knows that it's virtually impossible to have decent accuracy.
Using the tactical (read boring) method I got through this level on the third try, and without losing any squad members.
The lower floor is very forgiving since the enemies don't move around that much.Taking out the few that are usually wandering about the corridor is first priority. After that it's simply a matter of playing it silent and use the wand and flashbangs. Using the wands to watch around corners is extremely useful here.
On the top floor there is no time for wands, but rushing isn't necessary. Simply order your squad to disable the bombs whenever you spot one, walk slowly to keep your aim and you should be fine.
To top off the tips: Always let your squad do the restraining. It may not be much faster (unless you have multiple unrestrained people in an area) but you don't leave your tender neck and fragile head unprotected for wandering suspects.
Sir, You not in my way
Awesome Let's play can't wait for the next two missions.
If you switch the M4 or any Gun that fires bullets to FMJ rounds you can kill the armoured terrorists faster and shoot through doors
About the bathrooms — if you mirror under the door to check if he is there, he cant open the door, and if he is there, place your own C2 charge. The door doesn't have to be locked, and it will either stun, incapacitate, or kill the guy inside without docking your points.
dear spoony i know what you mean i hate this lvl i still cant get past it. do you have any suggestions how not to die. ps thx for doing these swat reviews now i have his game its alot of fun. pps i love attempt number 49 DIEDIE F*CK YOU GUYS TOO!
shut up dude maby your a prodige but this level is friggen hard! its taken me almost 10 tries already and i still havent beaten it
for the guy in the bathroom maybe if you shoot first but with a taser gun it would work
Maybe the programmers were attempting to accurately simulate what it's like to go into a combat situation with a team of idiots. That's about the only explanation I can come up with for the piss-poor ally AI, other than programmer laziness and/or incompetence. And I thought X-Men Legends was annoying without human co-op. Yeesh!
Just beat this mission today. You should definitely start on the stairwell instead of in the elevator. Wedge the door to the bottom floor so no one sneaks up on you and do the bomb diffusal section first since it's the hardest. Even though the briefing says they are wearing masks, they aren't wearing gas masks so I pepper balled most of them. As for the guy in the bathroom, don't breach into the room. Instead pick the lock so he isn't alerted and then tell your men to stack up in front of the bathroom, get in front of the door and crouch. Wait for the reticle to get really small and tell them to breach and clear. Right when the door opens pepper ball the guy in the face.
The one advantage to the Rainbow Six series – If you get shot, you become the next team member in line. We used to make fun of my dad when he'd get shifted back to the female team members. That high voice was never very becoming.
Congrats on making it through, Spoony. What a nonsensefest.
Heck, sometimes I'd turn in a dark hallway and my guys would scare me and I'd mow them all down on accident. What fun, eh?
i am going to guess 21 on screen and only god knows off lol
dug in like ticks
I don't know why it's so much fun to watch you play this game but it is.
I guessed about 25 but crap, 59 is alot.
I would've given up on that game after 20 deaths.
what song did u use
Couldn't you try throw the door open and spray him with Pepper spray.
think ur koobut did u play res 4?
I'm currently trying to beat this level (I always get taken out by the last few guys with single shots), but the easiest way to take the downstairs bathrooms is to blast them open with C2. This will incapacitate the guys inside long enough for you to whip out your tazer to take them down. They'll usually go to surrender after the C2 goes off, but you can always taze them to make sure they don't go for a faux-surrender.
To be honest though, the Russian level has been the hardest for me so far, I died like twice as many times as you did on that level, and I'm on the verge of beating this level on only 5 or 6 tries.
The problem with the C2 method are the guys who open the doors the second you enter the room and start picking off your team. I have never been able to beat this single player though, so I applaud both you and spoony right off the bat. The team AI here is so pointless that you guys pretty much soloed this damn level with a few walking shields protecting you from instant death. I haven't been able to do it without my LAN buddies who rock at counterstrike assuming squad roles with me. lol
Hm, in the 12 or so times it took me to beat this level I never had a bathroom guy (who had the door closed) come out as soon as we entered the room. He only shot at us after we opened the bathroom door, and I was able to circumvent this with the C2.
My basic strategy for the rooms was to bang and clear if I saw someone inside with the wand. After that was clear (I'd rarely lose a guy in the room) I'd C2 the door open, and 99% of the time the guy would go to surrender. I never gave him a chance to faux-surrender because I'd taze him before he could recover.
I always lost my guys on the top floor. The funny part is that on the try where I finally nailed it, I had 3 of my guys going into the last balcony-area, but they all got taken out by 1 guy. I flashed him and took him out.
Ironically, the area where I lost the most of my guys (usually) was the “Employees Only” area at the top of the staircase, across from the door that takes you into the main area of the second floor. When you open the door there's a long hall that leads into a larger area, which is a complete deathtrap for your team because the (usually) 2 guys that are in there hide behind the pillar, so I'd usually lose at least 1, usually 2 guys. Only once did I clear that room unscathed.
actually the guy in the bathroom is very easy, because you just have to pick the taser, position yourself in front of the door and yell “police, hands up!”. He will hear you through the door and mostly open it in order to attack you, but because now you're the one who aims at the door, he won't have any chance ^^Of course this will work only if you enter quietly with the picklock
I think it would have been better if he used a GB36s instead of the Colt M4A1 Carbine
just search “beverly hills cop II soundtrack” on google or something
Either the G36 or the .45 SMG would be good with FMJ, not HP ammunition and you should have tried going in silent on the guy in the bathroom, have your men stare at the door while you open it from the side, not standing in the middle of the doorway then throwing a stinger, or you could break the door with C2 charges and run away then blow them up. Then mr.bathroom would probably run out so that you could shoot him in the ass or toss a grenade in there
G36 or .45 SMG would be good with FMJ, not HP ammunition. As for the guy in the bathroom you could try to go in silently then have your guys stare at the door and open the door from the side, not standing in the middle or the doorway then toss a grenade in there. The other method is going in silently once again and plant C2 on the door then run away and detonate, that would either make mr.bathroom run out of there or it would make it possible for you to toss a grenade in there.
Pretty sure your team mates deserved a Tea Bagging after you killed them for incompetence Spoony :)
My guess was 43… Not because I don’t have faith in you, but because 42 is the magic number. And like the critic, I like to go one step beyond.
Friggin’ geeze though, That’s insanity for a level…
Why is that the AI is always so stupid enough to have your team mates run infront of your gun fire.
Fucking hilarious as usual Spoony, thank you.
More Beverly Hills Cop music? Spoony you spoil us.
I loved the playthough of this game and because of it I’ve checked it out.
I have to say you keep crippling yourself with that assault rifle. It’s very inaccurate while moving and only useful when you have time to aim at a long range target. As soon as you get hit in the upper body the accuracy is for shit and you lose any advantage the gun may have had.
The smgs are very reliable. Also the paintball gun is something I always equip someone from the team with because they can fire preemptively.
As for the guy held up in the bathroom, open the door and taze. There’s usually just one and if you swing the door open and shock him before he has a chance to do anything you take him down without getting hit.
i guessed like 25 i was way off
I got really nostalgic about this game when I started watching this “Let’s Play” given that I ADORED SWAT 3, but now I remeber why I never replayed this game. Spoony, I’m in awe of your patience.
my first watching of this, im going to guess you tried…… 35 times.
damn lol. im already wrong.
I guessed forty-five!
I’ve just done this level myself, it took me 2 attempts, fair dues to Spoony though as I was playing on Easy mode, so a score of 0 would have got me a pass, but after watching this video I was still prepared for months of torture. Does anyone know what changes take place in the different difficulties? from what I can tell it seems to only be the score needed for a pass.
For the guy in the bathroom I seemed to enter in from the joining door and blow the door with C2 which dazed him so I could teaser him.
I know at least one change is that the higher the difficulty, the more damage enemies’ shots do to you and your team.
AAAH YOU FOOL!
I mean….me fool!
I’m trying to figure out why I laugh more at these videos than I do some of the best comedians in history. “They were in MY way, SIR” – XD priceless.
There are a lot of songs in these SWAT Let’s plays that you share with Beverly Hills Cop! :)
Put a C2 charge on the bathroom door, tell your teammates to stand on the farside on the room covering the door, and blow it open from afar. Then chuck gas towards it.
use cheats problem solved
*flying CRT monitor pwnage*
Must be on drugs. They sell them to the tourists.
always nice to have a police shooter with the music from the Beverly Hills Cop movies, lol.
lol. almost guessed it. guessed 60.
use the paintball gun it makes it so much eaiser because you can shoot everyone: hostages, swat guys, bad guys, your mom without a penalty.
darn it took you long to turn on your team members (seriously you got shot by them on almost every video you uploaded)
What I would do in situations like the bathroom where bad guys are waiting to ambush me is to order the rest of the SWAT team to bugger off somewhere so they’re not in the direct line of fire, go flat against the wall next to the bathroom door, open it from the side and throw a grenade in. It often helps to be on the side opposite to the hinges of the door, that way you can ricochet the grenade off the door (since it opens inwards) so that it flies into the centre of the room.
Eh, Spoony? You do know that you can de-activate the bombs? I always de-activate them when I find them. Yes, you can de-activate them, with the instrument I forgot what it’s called that you use to open the door quitely. Just aim at the bomb and you will see it.
One way to possibly get by those guys at the bathroom is to either C4 the door, blast might kill them…..or have pepper spray or pepper ball gun ready, so you can shoot without having to yell first.
I once had a C4 entry where the door hit the guy so hard the physics bugged out and he did a psycho crusher into the wall.
Also, Spoony, thanks for reminding me about this game…just reinstalled yesterday to play it and the expansion pack again.
I know someone probably said this, but this is actually what stringer grenades are for. Small inclosed spaces are perfect for stringer grenades.
It IS possible to get the guys in the bathrooms without too much trouble, but you got to go into the bedrooms silently first.
Can you just lock them in the bathrooms with doorstops? Maybe deal with them later, after you’ve disarmed the bombs?
Did you think to use a breaching charge on the bathroom door? If the perp is standing in front of it, they should be whacked by the explosion.
I know I’m YEARS late on this one, but I just reinstalled the game, and one of the first thing you learn on the training course is that the magic wand can be used in open spaces too, to peek around corners.
You can even give commands when peeping!
No more camper deaths!
o.o … Your 2009 computer setup makes me excited. So professional! I mean, look at that microphone!! And that keyboard!! Wow!
Me personally I wouldn’t have sent in 5 SWAT guys; they would be there, yes, on the lower levels to create a cordon so that no goons escape. I would send 5 Mi-27 Hind gunships in, Gatlings a-blazin’. If any of the militiamen are left alive, SWAT can get them – after the choppers shoot the top floors to ribbons.
I’m still partial to sending John Mclaine in after them.
I’m afraid that would reduce the hotel to a pile of shit, which they don’t want to do, not to mention that random bullets could set off the bombs (although they don’t know about these at the beginning of the mission)
C2 charges = best friend in this stage mainly on the lower floors. always breach the bathroom doors even if they are unlocked
“DIEEE ! DIEEEEEE ! DIE YOU FUCKER ! FUCK YOU GUYS TOO ! *kills comrade*” I fucking died.
59 attempts? Holy fuck, I was way off….then again, when I played this game, this fucking level took me a lot of attempts too.
I used to be a SWAT member like you, but then I took the bullet to the knee
sorry, I’ll slap myself
Spoony do you not know how to Lean to the side?
“AWWW THAT WAS GOOD”
Attempt #59………….. SUCCESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Damn, Spoony looks odd with short hair…
in this mission i always used the paintball gun and tazer combo and that magic wand , and paintball gun on bathroom doors: 1.check under door 2 open (with ‘pliers’) un/locked 3 while pointing at the door-open 4 if there’s no perp (sigh of relief) but usually there is (get trigger happy on perp), 5 taze him for fun….evil laugh….
