Introduction
Freedom Fighters
is a game of tactical combat, or what some like to
refer as a thinking shooter. Unlike most shooter games, which send a
player through an essentially linear course, killing everything in
sight, or others that require the player to find special keys or cards to
get through a locked door,
Freedom Fighters
lets the player concen-
trate on tactics as well as strategy. For nearly every mission, there is
more than one way of completing the objectives.
The player can give orders to recruited team members with a
simple button press. Commanding team members is very important; it
allows the player to create diversions, set ambushes, and even
maneuver the team to catch the enemy in a crossfire. Furthermore,
the structure of the missions, with the division of missions into
subzones, allows players to choose the order in which they complete
the objectives.
The premise of
Freedom Fighters
is an alternate history where the
Soviet Union developed the atomic bomb first and won World War II.
With a weaker America, the Soviets expanded into Western Europe
and then the Western Hemisphere. Their next step is the United
States, and they are beginning with an invasion of New York City. As
Chris Stone, a plumber caught up in the attack, the player must help
build up a resistance organization and drive the Soviets from the city.
To accomplish this, the player must use guerilla warfare tactics and
hit the antagonists where they least expect it.
How to Use This Book
This strategy guide comprises three sections. The first section covers
the game basics, which includes information on all the characters in
the game, the weapons and equipment you can use to defeat the
Reds (as well as what they will use against you), and finally tactics
and strategies to help you succeed. The second section consists of
step-by-step walkthroughs of each mission, including the most
effective order in which to complete the objectives and ways to
avoid the enemy strong points. The final section covers the multi-
player game, with tips on how to beat other Freedom Fighters.

Note
The game plays the same regardless of the
difficulty level at which you play. The differ-
ences are in how much damage you and your
team members can take. For example, on the
easy level, you can take several hits before
you are in trouble. At more difficult levels, one
or two hits and you are history.

During the course of your guerilla campaign in Soviet-controlled
New York City, you control a single character—Chris Stone. You
also interact with, fight against, and even command a host of other
characters. It is important to know who your friends are and whom
to shoot at. Be careful—a one-time friend may turn against you,
and enemies may become allies. Anything can happen in the
streets and sewers of the occupied Big Apple.
Freedom Fighters
The Freedom Fighters are anyone who resists Soviet domination.
Some actively fight the Soviet troops, while others take a more
passive role. However, each person is important in helping you to
complete your missions and take back the city for Americans.
Chris Stone
Born and raised in Brooklyn, Chris is just a normal New York
working man with a shelf full of football trophies and a rent bill
that arrives every month.
At 32, Chris's biggest influence in life is still his family. His dad
is an Irishman, a retired rescue worker who calmly saved lives
for years but who just as calmly put a handbag thief into the
hospital. His mother is a Native American schoolteacher. Her
father taught the old Indian ways to Chris and his brother, Troy.
After the Soviets invade New York, Chris becomes a Freedom
Fighter and leads a determined and growing group known as the
Manhattan Resistance. During the game, you control Chris as he
seeks to liberate his home from the enemy.
Troy Stone
The younger of the Stone brothers, Troy is a real handful. At 30, he
still hasn't decided what he wants to do, but whatever it is, he
wants to do it fast. He builds custom cars with the local car club,
the Brooklyn Rats, in his ample spare time. He often helps his
brother with plumbing jobs. Troy's capture by the Soviets leads
Chris into the resistance business.
