This page will serve as the Battlefield Hardline single-player walkthrough, taking gamers through the prologue, as well as all 10 episodes of the campaign. We'll provide step-by-step instructions to help even the most inexperienced players navigate through this cops versus criminals story. This includes helping gamers collect all the Evidence required to complete the game's Case Files, as well as arresting each of the Suspects with Warrants.
Tips for Battlefield Hardline
- Enemies that have a shield icon with an exclamation point above their heads will give up when players flash their badge. Just make sure there are three or less.
- Arrests and take downs are separate concepts - Arrests are when players flash a badge, and take downs use the T62 CEW or melee attacks.
- Remember to check the bodies of downed foes. This is a great way to get new weapons and gadgets that can be equipped as part of the Tactical Gear.
- Arresting Suspects with Warrants can lead to big points, helping players to unlock new weapons and gadgets to take on Miami's worst criminals.
- Use the Scanner to tag and identify enemies. The Scanner is also used to locate and analyze any evidence that players come across, completing the Case Files.
- Shell casings can be used to distract foes, drawing them away from their pals and into a position where they can be arrested or taken down quietly.
