This guide reveals many of Mission: Impossible's secrets and may spoil your enjoyment of the game. Use at Your Own Risk!

The Basics

One-Hit Deaths - Taking out an enemy with one shot is very effective, especially on the later levels. To pull these off, all you have to do is target the enemy's head. Easier yet, sneak up behind them and plug them through the back of the head. This technique will also save you tons of ammo.

Possible/Impossible - This guide was compiled on the Possible difficulty. Impossible is basically the same, but features more Objectives on each level. Impossible also has a different ending.
