Tips for Firewall Zero Hour: Operation Nightfall, Part Five
Here we go with the week 4 operations for Operation: Nightfall, season 1. Let’s just jump in.
Free Operation – Week 4
1.) Eliminate 4 players using any sidearm with the reflex sight attached – must be done in public contracts. As I previously went over in task 3 of the free operation for week 1, it is very hard to get kills with the pistol. Higher level players with access to the high damage sidearms will have an easier time, but this is still a very difficult challenge. You can find my blog for week 1 here.
2.) Eliminate 16 players with a headshot, using the Spitfire – must be done in public contracts. You will unlock the Spitfire SMG at level 15. Be sure you aim for the head as that last bullet to down them must be in the head.
3.) Get 4 player headshots using any sidearm, with a laser attached – must be done in public contracts. Hopefully while you are working on the first task for 4 kills with a sidearm, you maximize your damage you do with headshots and get this one as well. Just have to have the laser attachment on your pistol and does not have to be turned on. Very difficult to do.
4.) Eliminate 8 players with a headshot, using any sidearm – must be done in public contracts. Basically you are just adding 4 more headshots to your third task. Thankfully they are counted together and not individually. I don’t know why you wouldn’t have a laser on your pistol if you purchased it since there is no other option for this attachment. Better to have it and not need it.
For finishing the 4th week’s Free operation, you will get the Sarge pistol unlocked. This is a very good pistol with moderate damage and a high fire rate.
Premium Operation – Week 4
1.) Execute 4 downed players using the knife – must be done in public contracts. You simply must go up and stab an enemy contractor when they are in the “downed” position. Sometimes it takes two stabs, but most time it is just a quick stab if you are the correct distance. You do not have to be the one to down them, just stab them.
2.) Execute 8 downed players using explosives – must be done in public contracts. This can be done with any explosion from grenades to C4. They must be “downed” however. If you outright kill an enemy with an explosion, it will not count towards this task. Impacts and sticky count as well.
3.) Locate and acquire 8 intel folders – can be done in Terrorist Hunt solo or in public contracts. If you haven’t read my previous strategy on these for solo, you can find it in my part 4, week 3 guide under the Free Operation outline, or at the bottom of this guide.
4.) Use a signal modifier to jam 16 laptops – can be done in Terrorist Hunt solo or in public contracts. Very easy to get as you just have to play enough games in defense. As soon as the game starts, deploy your signal modifier. Preferably behind something or on top. The signal modifier was previously unlocked at level 21, but FCE has announced they lowered the required level, never stating the new level. I would guess you can now get this gadget around level 18 or so.
5.) Bypass 16 access points – can be done in Terrorist Hunt solo or in public contracts. Very easy to do in solo. The access point is the first unlock you must hit on offense before getting to the laptop to reveal its’ location. Playing solo ensures you get it each time.
For finishing the Premium Operation with Ops Pass purchased, you will unlock the glowstick trinket for all guns across all contractors.
Bonus Operation – Week 4
1.) Locate and acquire 32 intel folders – can be done in Terrorist Hunt solo or in public contracts. Again, see my guide for part 4, week 3 in the Free operation for strategies to get these. Must quicker and more efficient doing this solo.
2.) Complete 16 contracts wearing any face paint – can be done in Terrorist Hunt solo or in public contracts. If you have no face paint purchased, I can tell you that you will need the Crane, Zebra, Skull, Oni and Kaolin for later contracts. You should have the “glow” face paint unlocked at this point though.
3.) Eliminate 32 players wearing any face paint – must be done in public contracts. Just have to get kills with any face paint. Remember to put it on, especially if you change contractors.
4.) Dismantle 16 door blockers – can be done in Terrorist Hunt solo or in public contracts. In my grind video, going solo on Hotel will almost always have at least one door blocker that you can dismantle. You are never guaranteed it in public contracts and it is almost always rigged with C4. See my guide for part 4, week 3 in the Free operation guide for my grind video, or at the bottom of this guide.
For completing the Bonus operation with Ops Pass purchased, you will unlock the Starstruck face paint across all contractors.
