Head out to the Everglades to track down a coke operation. You’re going to need help navigating the swamps.


Battlefield Hardline guide: Episode 3 – Gator Bait

To begin with you need to follow the markers and tag the drug bales with Khai. She handles the first two, so you’re just going through the motions here. As you tag the third one you’re in for a little surprise, so follow the on-screen prompts.

Use the grappling hook and the zipline and then approach the three enemies, who you can easily subdue. Check the radio frequency in the hut, then get on the fan boat. There are two locations to investigate. Go directly north of your position and you’ll come to the sawmill.

When you dock, head up to the water tower and tag all the enemies, evidence and alarms. You can go quiet or loud. There’s plenty of cover here for either approach. Once you’ve taken care of the bad guys, go to the small office shipping container and pick up the messages from the phone. Now go back to the airboat and investigate the other marker on your map.

At the gator farm climb up to the windmill and tag everyone and everything before deciding on your actions. Go quiet or loud and there’s plenty of evidence to clean up here, explosives to trigger and crooks to take down. At the back of the farm you’ll find a room where you’re forced to have a chat via radio. Just outside you’ll find an airboat that will take you to the stadium.

At the stadium you’re meant to be quiet, but it doesn’t always turn out that way. Change your loadout with the Tactical Gear in the back of the car, then turn right and up the stairs to get a view of the crooks below. Arrest the nearest guard, then descend the steps to take them all down. In the boathouse you’ll find Neltz but he escapes…

The next part is a raid on a warehouse where you go in all-guns blazing. Take no prisoners as you clear out all three floors and approach Neltz in the office upstairs. We’d recommend a shotgun and a heavy pistol to deal plenty of damage at close range.
