Escort Karlito the tank
You will now need to escort the tank into Benitez’s base. There will be enemies trying to destroy it with RPGs, so focus on them when escorting it. If the health on Karlito gets too low, you will need to repair it with your repair tool before you can move on. After breaking through the second gate you will get a cutscene and end up inside.
Find Admiral Benitez
Once you’re inside the building, you will be locked in a room with two electronic doors. You will need to wait for enemies to come through these doors so that you can move through them.
In the next room, deal with the enemies and head downstairs, at which point the enemy behind the glass will turn on poison in your room. You will need to turn 4 valves to turn off the poison. The first is on the wall downstairs in the open, and the second is on the pipes above which can be reached from the second floor.
From the second valve, the third is to your right and up a ladder, while the last one is just passed that through a broken fence.
Once all four valves have been turned, Sgt. Cardenas will come out from the locked room to fight you. Kill him (your Tostador flamethrower will kill him very quickly) then pick up his keycard to enter his locked room. Inside there you will find another keycard to the room downstairs.
Inside the prison, head into the control room where Benitez was located and open the cells. Some enemies will come in after this, including Sgt. Minaya. Kill him to grab his keycard. Continue forward to the rooftop.
Assassinate Admiral Benitez
On the rooftop, Benitez will be holed up in her office and there’ll be plenty of enemies. Kill the enemies and work your way up the stairs to the entrance of her office. It’ll be blocked by a gate, so you will need another way in.
Defend Yelena while she hacks the cannons
Yelena will start hacking the cannons to blast open the gate. During this you will need to defend both Yelena and the cannons. Hop in the available cannon and use it to shoot at the enemies that start to flood the area. If the cannon gets badly damaged, you can hop out and repair it with your repair tool.
Destroy Benitez’s office door
Once Yelena has finished hacking the cannons, shoot the gate in front of Benitez’s office.
Kill Admiral Benitez
With her office now accessible, head inside. You will get a slow-mo when you enter and Benitez will have a hostage, so make sure to aim and shoot her.
