3 targets, 23 casino guards, 16 sheik guards, 87 innocent people

Intel? More partial spoilers!

Our first two targets are just so incredibly easy to deal with that I'm almost inclined not to tell you what needs doing. Run into the casino and around into the lobby before sprinting upstairs and pushing the call button for the left elevator. When the doors have closed, climb through the service hatch in a sinister way and ready your Fiber Wire in a sinister manner, and wait in a... okay, I'm bored now.

In a few minutes, the Scientist will be entering the building, and through the powers of clairvoyance, I've determined that this is the elevator he'll use. Don't worry about his armed escort, he'll get ditched when science-boy enters the elevator. Once the doors have closed, use the context menu to pull the Scientist up and take his 8th Floor Keycard, leave your Rifle Case sitting safely on the roof of the elevator, and hide the Diamonds along with it. Now for the clever bit, we're going to hide in the elevator to the right now.

In a couple of minutes, Hendrick Schmutz is going to come up from the bar, so it's exactly the same as it was for the Scientist - wait until the doors close and then pull Hendrick Schmutz up. By now, Sheikh Al-Khalifa has made his entrance with his entourage. Return to the ground floor and take the steps down into the casino proper (if you want to use the ICA Case, now would be a good time to get your room key from the desk at the right).

Take the door on the right, followed by a left in the next corridor, and enter the first set of toilets that you come to. We're lying in wait for a lone Bodyguard to come and take a pee. In preparation for his arrival, we need to knock-out the Civilian using the stall nearest the door (just push him and close the door). When the Bodyguard comes in, he'll use the third stall - just like before, push him and he'll hit his head without fail. He shouldn't need moving, so strip him of his suit and leave him where he is.

With the suit obtained, return to the left elevator and reclaim your Rifle Case from the top before riding all the way up to the 8th floor. The Sheikh's suite is located in the upper-left (north-west) corner of this floor (check the map for room 803 if you're unsure). With the suit and the card, obtaining access is easy. There's only one Bodyguard assigned to the inside of the room, so sedating him is as easy as it comes (no need to hide him or anything).

Unpack your W2000 before strolling into the bedroom and using the conveniently located phone to speed-dial the Sheikh. Head out onto the balcony and zoom-in on the rooftop with the red light - this is where he's heading. Take your time and then take your shot, when Sheikh Al-Khalifa stops to answer the call, game over, man, game over. Drop the rifle (or store it in the ICA Case in room 701 if you want to take the Diamonds and avoid a penalty) and return to where you stashed the Diamonds. If you like, you can return to the toilets and reclaim your suit before exiting through the doors at the opposite side of the casino floor (run over to the fence to exit). James Bond never had to sneak past bin-bags.


  1. It would be wise to check in at the reception as one of the first things you do at the Casino.
  2. Security is very tight in high profile casinos, so staff have Keycards which only provide access to the floors they work on.
  3. As requested, we have left an Agency Pickup in your hotel room, #701.
  4. The casino has strict fire-safety procedures. Easily accessible fire alarms are located on the top floors.
  5. It's important to find good vantage points. Room balconies may provide this.
  6. The VIP Lounge has been reserved all day by the Sheikh - only waiters are allowed in this area.
  7. There is no cell phone coverage inside the Casino to prevent cheating. Anyone receiving a call has to step outside.
  8. The items used in the trade are carried around in an ordinary looking suitcase so they don't catch too much attention.
