Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction

Strategy Guide/Walkthrough/FAQ

Review

  • Easy challenges

    In the mission where you infiltrate the White Box company, after killing the guard by the front car lot, infiltrate the building. When you first see the room, you can climb up the pipe or throw an object (frag grenade, proximity mine, remote mine, sticky cam, or EMP grenade) into the room. Even on the Realistic difficulty, the most the AI can do is shout and raise their guns, provided you have upgraded each gadget to the maximum. This room provides many ways to get and complete any challenge, except for most of the Splinter Cell challenge group. Note: This can be repeated as many times as desired by reverting back to last checkpoint.

  • Easy "Judge, Jury and Executioner" and "Man Of Conviction" achievements

    Reach the final level in the game in the White House, and choose either to kill Tom Reed or spare him to get the "Judge, Jury and Executioner" achievement (if you kill him) or "Man Of Conviction" achievement (if you spare him). To easily get both achievements, once the game is completed and the credits have begun, select the "Continue Story" option at the main menu. You will resume the game closer to the ending choice, instead of repeating the entire game again, and can select the other ending to get the other achievement.

  • Easy "Last Man Standing" achievement and Multi-kill challenges

    Play Last Stand mode with a partner in Co-op mode. Select the Mozdok Grounds 1 map. Choose three Gadget Upgrades for your suit; Five-Seven and AK47 (or any gun with a scope) for weapons; and Proxy Mine, Remote Mine (or whichever required for challenges) for gadgets. Have each person stand by the door on the second floor stairwells so you are inside the stairwell. Shoot out the light above you, if one is present. Look directly out the door or to the right (depending on which stairwell you are in) to see a doorway. As long as you stay in the stairwells, it will force the enemies to only spawn from that doorway. Just focus fire on the doorway (headshots). If you get overwhelmed, toss a mine at the door. After you clear a wave, run over to the dead enemies to collect ammunition for the next round, then hurry back to the stairwells. Repeat this as many times as desired. If done correctly, you should be able to complete it in approximately twenty minutes without ever dying.

  • Easy "Weapons Collector" achievement

    Successfully complete single player Story mode to unlock all weapons except the AK47 assault rifle, AKS-74U sub machine gun, and SR-2M machine pistol. These weapons must be collected and returned to the nearest weapons stash in co-op Story mode.
